Lindsey Graham urges Trump to “punch a cop” and “smash some windows” over indictment

After going on Fox to beg people for money to help poor poor former grifter-in-chief, the South Carolina lapdog tweeted that Trump should “smash some windows” and “punch a cop” to avoid prison… a… um… joke about Alvin Bragg being soft on crime and not at all a reference to that January day on which Trump incited a violent insurrection that broke many windows and left five cops dead. Ha. Please quit your day job.

VIDEO OF THE DAY: Trump arraignment details announced, including decision on mug shot

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?

Millions will start losing healthcare as COVID-19 aid programs end
As pandemic-related emergency measures begin to wind down, poor Americans will – once again – feel a disproportionate share of the burden as states start removing people from Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program rolls April 1st. Up to 15 million people nationwide are expected to lose most or all of their coverage provided under these programs. It’s sad enough that it took a global pandemic for enough Republicans to see the wisdom of extending even basic healthcare to as many people as possible. The majority of Americans view healthcare as a human right — a right that is recognized in every other developed nation on earth — and once again, our conservative leaders are stripping that right from the most vulnerable. in a very onbrand show of callous cruelty.

Take Action: Tell Congress to pass the PRO Act and protect workers’ rights!

Judge gives final green-light for $1.6 billion lawsuit against Fox News

In what was the final obstacle standing in the way of Dominion Voting System’s historic lawsuit against Fox News for pushing Trump’s election-theft conspiracy theory from going forward, Delaware Superior Court Judge Eric Davis declined to unilaterally declare a winner in the case, which will now proceed to trial. The judge issued a stunning rebuke of Fox News in his ruling, stating “it is CRYSTAL clear that none of the statements relating to Dominion about the 2020 election are true.”

White Lives Matter member arrested for attempting to burn down church
20-year-old Aimenn D. Penny, a racist “White Lives Matter” member – yes, apparently, this organization exists – firebombed an Ohio church because they planned to host a “Drag Queen Story Time” event, federal prosecutors say.

Trump’s last-ditch effort to avoid prosecution BLOWS UP in his face

No Lie with Brian Tyler Cohen: This did not turn out well for Trump…

Amazon paid consultants over $14 million for anti-union push in 2022
$14.2 million could’ve covered decent raises for thousands of its employees. It could have kick-started an expansion of worker benefits, funded college scholarships for their kids, or financed safety improvements at warehouses. Instead of investing in its facilities or its employees, however, Amazon decided to pay outside agencies to intimidate their own workers and prevent unions from making inroads at its facilities, which have remained largely union-free despite a New York facility voting to unionize in April of 2022.

Pennsylvania Senator John Fetterman discharged from hospital after weeks of treatment for depression

60 Minutes blasted for platforming Marjorie Taylor Greene in upcoming interview
Reactions to leaked photos of tomorrow’s primetime feature have been swift and disparaging as many are wondering what exactly could disqualify someone from getting a platform on CBS. We’re reserving judgment, but if CBS does anything but expose her for the dangerous, self-serving Qanon maniac that she is, we have Jews on our team, and their space lasers are ready.

DeSantis’ power move against Disney blows up in his face
“The corporate kingdom finally comes to an end! There’s a new sheriff in town,” the baby fascist declared in February as he signed a law stripping Disney of its Magic Kingdom powers, an act of retribution because the company was not persecuting LGBTQ and Black people to the governor’s liking. Only guess what. The mouse outmaneuvered him, and his LGBTQ-hating power grab didn’t do shit lol.
