Mike Pence FINALLY calls Trump out for endangering his life during 1/6 insurrection

Trump’s former vice president and chief evangelical enabler during his disastrous term in office FINALLY decided it was time to come forward and call out the disgraced ex-president’s “reckless” behavior on Jan. 6. Such bravery! So timely! Surely this has nothing to do with the GOP’s spectacular collapse in the midterms last week and Trump’s suddenly weakened position within the party.

Take Action: Expel the congressmen who tried to get Trump pardons for their role in Jan. 6th!

VIDEO OF THE DAY: Rising Democratic star humiliates election-denying sore loser

Pennsylvania Gov.-elect Josh Shapiro laughed off his vanquished opponent’s tired election denialism and lack of decorum and instead is focusing on the decisive mandate voters have handed him — a refreshing idea the mainstream media would be wise to consider covering themselves. EDITOR’S NOTE: Following the release of this video, Mastriano finally conceded to what little fanfare could escape the abyss of loser irrelevancy he will reside in from this day forth.

Take Action: Keep Trump off Facebook!

Lauren Boebert’s opponent issues major news on the race

No Lie with Brian Tyler Cohen: Big news.

Radical, far-right coup enthusiast and staunch ally turns on Trump: “Dishonest, disloyal, incompetent, crude”
Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama, a fervent election denier and onetime loyalist to the disgraced ex-president, trashed Trump in a new interview, stating, “[He] has proven himself to be dishonest, disloyal, incompetent, crude and a lot of other things that alienate so many independents and Republicans.” First Pence, now Brooks. These clowns get ZERO points for their newfound clarity, accurate as it may be.

Take Action: Oppose Congressional GOP attacks on LGBTQ+ rights!

Ex-chief of staff John Kelly says Trump wanted to “get the IRS on” James Comey, send DOJ after Andrew McCabe, Jeff Bezos, others
After years of hysterical Republican freakouts over accusations that Democrats were using the IRS to bully conservatives (by investigating the networks of dark money fueling the GOP astroturf political machine), it turns out that their own president and party leader, Donald Trump, was using the IRS to exact revenge on those who had wronged him.

Biden meets Xi in Bali amid heightened China-US tensions

President Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping met Monday in person for the first time since Biden took office, amid escalating tensions over Taiwan, the war in Ukraine, the ability of American companies to sell high-end tech to Chinese businesses, and America’s decision to position nuclear bombers in Australia.

Take Action: Demand Congress put an end to private prisons!

3 dead, 2 injured in University of Virginia shooting; manhunt underway for student suspect
Ready the right-wing thoughts and prayers machine! Because now is clearly not the time to discuss sensible gun safety reform or confront America’s maniacal obsession with firearms. If there’s one thing Republicans are good at doing in the face of unspeakable gun violence, it’s absolutely nothing.

Republicans are all too happy to let their hypocrisy distract from climate crisis they are feeding and profiting from

EDF Action: The Environmental Defense Fund is working overtime to call out Republicans’ threat to the planet and force meaningful action before it’s too late. Chip in to help them get the job done!

Elizabeth Warren says debt ceiling should be abolished to end GOP threat to “blow up the economy”
Sen. Warren urged newly empowered Democrats to use the upcoming lame-duck session to eliminate the US debt ceiling for good, warning that leaving the borrowing limit intact gives bad-faith Republicans an opening to hold the economy hostage yet again for short-term political gain.

After clinching Senate, Dems eye the unthinkable: Holding the House
Democrats have a legitimate — if narrow — chance of retaining the lower chamber, where 20 races remain too close to call.

Today’s Action: Text bank for progressive values in Georgia!

As election results continue to trickle in, it’s clear that voters simply were not buying the toxic sludge Republicans were selling. While control of the House still remains too close to call, the disgraced ex-president’s predicted “red wave” was clearly nowhere to be found last week. While Democrats will in fact retain control of the US Senate, one crucial race there remains.  Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock’s contest against the observably awful Herschel Walker in Georgia is headed to a runoff in December after neither candidate reached the 50% threshold required to win outright last week.

We’re in the (slightly elongated) home stretch, folks. It’s absolutely critical to stay engaged and involved and keep Georgia blue. We need as many progressives in office as possible to preserve the rights we’ve been fighting so hard for —  reproductive rights, LGBTQ+ rights, gun-safety initiatives, justice reform, etc. One more seat in the Senate could mean the difference between advancing our progressive agenda or watching Mitch McConnell obstruct and disrupt any further progress over the next two years. You don’t have to be a seasoned professional or a registered voter in Georgia to join this fight, just be ready to channel the late, great John Lewis and stir up some “good trouble.”

The Georgia Working Families Party is hosting runoff text-banking parties EVERY TUESDAY, 6PM – 8PM EST, until December 6th. You’ll help identify supporters of Warnock as well as talk to on-the-fence voters. People all across the country are able to join in from the comfort of their own home, and there’s more than enough work to go around. Commit to a text-banking shift today!
