Gov. Ron DeSantis calls Daniel Penny a “Good Samaritan” after Jordan Neely subway killing

Ah, yes. Who can forget Jesus’ touching parable of the Good Samaritan, who stumbled upon a badly beaten, half-dead Jewish man on the road to Jericho and…promptly crushed his windpipe with a lethal, minutes-long chokehold. So Christlike!

VIDEO OF THE DAY: New Democratic star goes viral with speech of the year

Texas state Rep. James Talarico expertly shut down Republicans advancing a bill repealing gun-safety measures days after the state’s most recent mass shooting, stating, “You can’t offer thoughts and prayers on Monday and then debate a bill to loosen gun regulations on Tuesday… there is something profoundly cynical about asking God to solve a problem that we’re not willing to solve ourselves… this is moral madness.”

Take Action: Demand NO guns on college campuses!

Radical Speaker McCarthy is a huge problem for America

John Burrows for Congress: John Burrows is the young, charismatic leader we need to solve that problem and send McCarthy packing. We can’t risk another day — let alone two more years — of letting Marjorie Taylor Greene and Matt Gaetz pulling Kevin McCarthy’s strings and turning our Congress into a circus of conspiracy. Can you chip in to send John Burrow to Congress and send McCarthy home in disgrace?

Jon Stewart rips CNN over Trump town hall
“Dear TV,” Stewart wrote. “The problem w the Trump Town Hall wasn’t platforming … or a fragile siloed audience unable to be exposed to newsworthy opinions antithetical to their own … the problem was an event that was clearly negotiated to Trump’s approval. An ode to access.”

Ron DeSantis signs bill legalizing anti-LGBTQ+ medical discrimination in Florida
The Florida governor and stumbling presidential hopeful signed the cynically titled “Protections of Medical Conscience Act,” allowing healthcare providers or insurers to deny service based on literally any “conscience-based objection.” The bill conveniently and intentionally provides no definition for what constitutes a “moral” or “ethical” belief. What could possibly go horribly wrong?

Take Action: Tell the Biden team to use ALL emergency powers to protect the abortion pill!

Democratic governor vetoes 12-week abortion ban

North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper vetoed a “wicked” bill banning abortions after the first trimester, teeing up an override vote by the GOP supermajority legislature. “Standing in the way of progress right now is this Republican supermajority legislature that only took 48 hours to turn the clock back 50 years on women’s health,” Cooper said.

Tennessee company refuses US request to recall 67 million air bag inflators
ARC Automotive Inc. of Knoxville is refusing demands by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to recall nearly 70 million inflators in the US because they could explode and hurl shrapnel inside vehicle cabins.

Ex-cop who was accused of planting drugs gets no jail time
In addition to planting drugs in the car of his ex-girlfriend’s new partner, former North Carolina deputy David Scott Burroughs was charged with “making a false police report, obstructing justice, breaking and entering a motor vehicle, and possession of heroin, marijuana, and methamphetamine.” He received no jail time after accepting a cushy plea deal. Make it make sense.
