Chrissy Teigen’s Trump diss takes center stage at House hearing meant to discuss Hunter Biden

The first of the GOP’s planned witch hunts against tech executives and President Biden’s son took an unexpected and deeply embarrassing turn when House Democrats flipped the script and began examining how Twitter worked with Donald Trump to protect his fragile ego — including attempts to delete a Chrissy Teigen tweet calling Trump a “p**y ass b*tch,” which is now an official part of the congressional record for the rest of time. Truly a legacy he can be proud of.

Missouri bill goes even farther than DeSantis’ “Don’t Say Gay” law
GOP extremists in the Show Me State are showing us just how far they’re willing to take their hateful, performative anti-LGBTQ crusade by banning all discussion of gender ideology or sexual orientation in any way for all age groups and by anyone who isn’t a licensed medical practitioner.

White Republican Mississippi lawmakers move to strip majority-Black Jackson, Mississippi, residents of key voting rights
The Mississippi House’s white Republican supermajority passed a shocking bill stripping power from majority-Black Jackson’s duly elected judges and giving it to unelected judges and prosecutors appointed by an all-white cast of state officials to oversee the capitol district. It is yet another power grab by white lawmakers in a historic hotbed of horrifying racism, disenfranchising the Black people of Jackson and placing their governance in the hands of unaccountable, unelected white appointees.

GOP bill bans the teaching of scientific theories in Montana schools
We — come on. Are we really doing this again? Banning scientific theories? What year do you think it is, freshman state Senator David Emrich from Great Falls? Why do we have to have the same stupid fights over and over again? Have you ever had an original thought in your entire life? Can you define “governance” for the class? This bill better be scratched out onto vellum with a large feather by candlelight.

Republicans are coming for ALL our rights

Free & Fair Democracy PAC: Abortion rights. Gay marriage. Contraception. Our votes. Even the books our children read in school are under attack by GOP extremists.

Can you chip in to support their critical mission?

GOP leaders defend members calling President Biden a “liar” during State of the Union
After MAGA minions disgraced themselves at the State of the Union, the top two House Republicans spent the day on TV defending their asinine behavior. It’s the clearest sign yet that the GOP is the party of Marjorie Taylor Greene and white nationalist extremists.

TV journalist giving live report at Ohio GOP Gov. Mike DeWine press conference arrested for criminal trespassing
NewsNation correspondent Evan Lambert was in Ohio covering the fallout and recovery effort from last week’s devastating train derailment when law enforcement abruptly ended his live broadcast and arrested him for disorderly conduct and criminal trespassing.

Veteran journalist Seymour Hersh publishes report accusing the United States of covertly bombing the Nord Stream pipeline
Hersch, the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who exposed the 1968 My Lai massacre in Vietnam, has published a report claiming that a covert US naval action was responsible for planting and remotely detonating C4 bombs that destroyed three of the four Nord Stream pipelines that pump Russian natural gas into Europe. The United States has flatly denied the accusation.

Activists at the Satanic Temple have opened up a new online abortion clinic in New Mexico that offers counseling and medication abortion to those who need it. They’ve named it after the mother of Samuel Alito, the Catholic radical Supreme Court justice largely responsible for overturning Roe v. Wade, because “in 1950, (Alito’s mother) did not have options, and look what happened.”

Today’s Action: Register voters for Wisconsin’s Supreme Court election in April!

Abortion rights are taking center stage once again, this time in Wisconsin, where progressive voters have a chance to flip control of the state Supreme Court and help restore equitable access to reproductive healthcare. Securing Democratic seats on the state’s high court could spell the end of the current, near-total abortion ban that’s been on the books since 1849. And since Republican gerrymandering in Wisconsin is some of the most egregious in the country, this may be our best chance at restoring reproductive rights for marginalized people currently being denied equitable access to care.

While progressives have managed to deliver a string of recent statewide abortion-rights victories in the wake of last summer’s disastrous SCOTUS ruling that overturned Roe v. Wade, we must be steadfast in our pursuit to restore and preserve access to abortion care to the millions of folks living in Republican-dominated red states. The battle for reproductive healthcare is raging, and we must stand ready to fight.

Sign up to register voters for Wisconsin’s upcoming Supreme Court election every Friday from 12-2pm CST now until April 4! You don’t have to be in Wisconsin to join the fight, just be ready to put in the work to help identify and register new Wisconsin voters!

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition to tell the Justice Department to bring charges against Trump, and be sure to follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
