Fox News apologizes for repeatedly lying to judge in Dominion defamation case

Things aren’t going smoothly for Rupert Murdoch and company in the ongoing $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit filed by Dominion Voting Systems, as attorneys were forced to formally apologize for repeatedly lying to the presiding judge over Murdoch’s day-to-day role in the company.

VIDEO OF THE DAY: Biden brings down the house in Ireland

Joe Biden’s downright epic welcome in Ballina, Ireland stood in stark contrast to Republicans’ flaccid attempts to knock the president for supposedly weakening America’s image abroad. Also worth noting, Biden’s grand entrance was set to “I’m Shipping Up to Boston” by American Celctic punk band Dropkick Murphys, whose lead singer was called Donald Trump the “greatest swindler in history.” Mic drop.

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 add your name in support of John’s campaign to send McCarthy home in disgrace?

Radical-right Trump judge who blocked mifepristone hid anti-abortion article from Senate during confirmation
Matthew Kacsmaryk — the far-right federal judge who blocked the Food and Drug Administration’s approval of mifepristone last week — schemed with editors at the First Liberty Institute to remove his name from a 2017 Texas Review of Law and Politics article attacking abortion care and intentionally withheld the work from the Senate Judiciary Committee, which requires nominees to disclose all publications. Rules for thee, not for me!

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

GOP donor pulls plug on funding Ron DeSantis over book-banning crusade

Florida poised to allow juries to sentence executions without unanimous vote

Not content using every lever of state government to attack the marginalized and downtrodden in every nook and cranny in the the Sunshine State, autocratic Gov. Ron DeSantis is now poised to sign into law drastic new changes to Florida’s implementation of capital punishment. Under the new law, juries would no longer require 12 unanimous votes to sentence someone to death. Instead, an 8-4 tally would be sufficient. Only three of the 27 states with capital punishment currently allow people to be executed when a jury is divided during the penalty phase.

Priest accuses Florida GOP of criminalizing “empathy” with anti-immigrant crackdown
Archbishop Thomas Wenski of Miami blasted Republicans — including the state’s Catholic governor — for a new anti-immigration bill that would make it illegal to provide transportation to an undocumented migrant anywhere and for any distance, even to an emergency room. “The sponsors of this bill want to take out their frustrations on the migrants with various punitive measures that unfairly demonize them and gratuitously seek to make their lives even more difficult,” he said.

Substitute teacher turned Texas middle-school class into impromptu “Fight Club”
A substitute teacher in Mesquite, Texas — who has since been fired and reported to the police — encouraged students to fight in her class, going so far as to create rules and post a student “guard” at the door. The incident, which was secretly caught on video by a student, was reported to officials by a concerned mother who’s since received death threats for speaking up.

Top Trump attorney recuses himself from handling Mar-a-Lago stolen documents case
The disgraced ex-president’s ongoing legal woes just won’t quit, as attorney Evan Corcoran recused himself from representing Trump in the stolen documents scandal. Corcoran’s exit was an expected development after special counsel Jack Smith’s office forced him to testify without the shield of attorney-client privilege in front of the grand jury and prosecutors accused Trump of using his attorney to advance a crime.

Judge rejects Trump’s bid to unmask jurors in upcoming defamation trial
The former grifter-in-chief actually tried to force jurors in the defamation lawsuit brought by E. Jean Carroll to provide their names, employment, and 38 other pieces of information. Carroll credibly accused Trump of raping her in the 1990s, drawing the furious ire of Trump, who claimed she wasn’t his type before confusing her for one of his ex-wives — in court. Seriously. US District Judge Lewis Kaplan rejected the obvious attempt to intimidate jurors ahead of the hotly anticipated trial set to begin later this month.
