Top Stories for November 6:

Early vote totals point toward record-breaking Democratic turnout for midterm elections

Eyes on the prize, folks. Nearly 40 million Americans have already voted in the 2022 midterms, and data suggest turnout by Election Day could be higher, younger, more diverse, and even more Democratic than the 2018 midterms — a historic blue wave, for those keeping score.

Take Action: Stop Republicans’ scheme to end social security!

Major US corporations claiming to back abortion rights caught donating to GOP anti-abortion zealots
American corporations, including Meta, Amazon, AT&T, Comcast, Eli Lilly, and Citigroup, talk a good game when it comes to protecting women’s reproductive rights, but it’s all performative lip service. The megawealthy behemoths are all too happy to continue funneling millions of dollars into the campaign coffers of virulently anti-abortion Republicans, because tax cuts or something.

Take Action: Tell Congress to add new tax brackets for the megawealthy!

The GOP is just a few seats away from passing a national abortion ban

NextGen: Every woman in the country could have her bodily autonomy ripped away from her by radical zealots if we don’t win this November. The stakes could not be any higher. NEXTGEN is working around the clock to mobilize young voters and make sure we have the turnout we need to protect our majorities in Congress. Can you chip in to help elect pro-choice Democrats up and down the ballot?

Mastodon surges in popularity as Twitter users eye the exits
The previously obscure, ad-free, crowdfunded social network known as Mastodon has acquired hundreds of thousands of new users since Elon Musk took over Twitter last week and immediately began wreaking all kinds of havoc.

Take Action: Tell Elon Musk to keep Trump off of Twitter for good!

Biden snaps at “idiot” protesters branding him a socialist
To be fair, President Biden is obviously not a socialist and anyone seriously claiming otherwise is, well, an idiot.

Take Action: Tell Congress to protect immigrant youths from deportation!

Obama roasts carpetbagging Dr. Oz for selling political “snake oil” to get elected

At a rally for Democratic Senate candidate John Fetterman, the former president took repeated shots at Dr. Oz’s incessant promotion of quick-fix diet supplements and fake medicines and told Pennsylvanians they need a US senator who, you know, is actually from Pennsylvania.

Florida medical board bans gender-affirming care for trans youth
After failing to pass laws banning all gender-affirming care for minors through the state legislature, Gov. Ron DeSantis turned to the state medical board he conveniently stacked with rubber-stamping Republican allies to yet again strip private medical decision-making from parents, families, and individuals who clearly need overzealous, dogmatic nannies to protect them from themselves.

Michigan Democrats on verge of STUNNING development

No Lie with Brian Tyler Cohen: Whoa.

Outgoing Republican Rep. Liz Cheney endorses another House Democrat in close race
Let’s be clear, there’s nothing heroic about Cheney endorsing moderate, incumbent House Democrats in races against Trump-backed Republican challengers, but with the future of democracy on the line it is worth noting just how far off the deep end the GOP has lunged for such an act to be considered newsworthy.

Elon Musk needs you to pay Twitter $8 per month for your blue check mark going forward
The world’s richest man and new owner of Twitter announced plans to give out once-free blue check marks to any Twitter Blue user willing to pay $7.99 per month. The new model is raising alarm about the consequences the system could have on disinformation ahead of the 2022 midterm elections and beyond. Since 2009, blue-checked accounts had been distributed to users through a verification process as a way to separate authentic accounts from impersonators.

House analysis confirms corporations use “cover of inflation to raise prices excessively”
In news that should shock absolutely no one paying an ounce of attention, the US House Committee on Oversight and Reform highlighted how “certain corporations are using the cover of inflation to raise prices excessively, resulting in record profits and profit margins” at the expense of — you guessed it — consumers.

Missouri’s marijuana legalization campaign is splitting the weed world
The debate about whether voters support legalizing weed is essentially over: Roughly two-thirds of adults back legalization nationwide and even staunchly conservative states have passed referendums. That has shifted the debate to be about how weed gets legalized rather than whether to legalize it. A growing rift over a recreational-use referendum on the ballot in Missouri is just the latest sign of would-be allies diverging over the future of legal marijuana in America.

Livin’ in America

All around the world


Today’s Action: Get out the vote for John Fetterman!

John Fetterman is the Democratic candidate for the most flippable US Senate seat in the country and the only Pennsylvanian running for the Pennsylvania race. We need all hands on deck across the country to help secure his victory. Fetterman, the Keystone State’s current lieutenant governor, spent 13 years as the mayor of Braddock, Pennsylvania, where he passionately served the people of his community. He has long been a dedicated progressive, even going so far as to officiate one of the first same-sex marriages in Pennsylvania when state laws at the time continued to push antiquated and discriminatory policies.

The margin of error for keeping the Senate in Democratic hands is far too thin for comfort, but we can take action to ensure we keep power and continue advancing our critical progressive agenda. Democrats’ path to keeping Mitch McConnell from another disastrous run as Senate majority leader runs right through Pennsylvania. Phone-banking is one of the most effective ways you can pitch in from afar. You don’t have to be a seasoned professional; just be ready to do good work.

Our Revolution has two more phone banks for Fetterman, today and tomorrow, from 6:30-8:45 PM EST until Election Day. If you can take part in just one of these sessions, the voters you reach could help tip the scales and flip Pennsylvania.

The fight for a truly progressive future does not end with Fetterman. There are committed Democratic candidates all across the country that need your help getting out the vote on Tuesday. You can filter through virtual phone- and text-banking events through Mobilize. So many critical issues are on the line this election — reproductive rights, LGBTQ+ rights, gun-safety initiatives, justice reform — everything we’ve fought so hard for! It’s never been more important to get out the vote and work for real change in America. Join the fight and do your part today!


Required Reading for the Resistance. Actions that make a difference.
