VIDEO OF THE DAY: Trump’s own lawyer reveals how screwed disgraced ex-president is on national TV

DeSantis to expand “Don’t Say Gay” law to all grades
Ron DeSantis is plowing ahead with plans to forbid classroom instruction on sexual orientation and gender identity in ALL grades in Florida public schools, because apparently you can’t effectively ostracize, terrorize, and marginalize the LGBTQ community unless you go whole hog.

Take Action: Tell Congress to ban Trump from running in 2024!

Early voting has begun in the most important election of 2023

Wisconsin Democrats Electing Janet Protasiewicz to the Wisconsin Supreme Court is the ONLY way we can protect abortion rights, thwart voter suppression, undo gerrymanders, and keep Trump’s goons from stealing the election in 2024! Will you make a donation to propel us to victory in this must-win race?

Stormy Daniels says her phone records are “gonna hurt” Trump
Daniels, the porn star at the center of a possible criminal indictment heading the disgraced ex-president’s way over illicit hush-money payments, handed over a trove of phone records to her attorney on Wednesday and ominously warned they will cause Donald a world of pain.

“Shocking and immoral”: Report details private equity’s stranglehold on US healthcare
Critics of for-profit care have long decried private equity’s singular focus on maximizing returns through unethical practices including slashing staff, surprising patients with astronomical bills, and eschewing low-margin care upon which vulnerable populations rely. A damning new report by consumer advocacy group Public Citizen lays bare the depravity of America’s for-profit healthcare industry and its fundamental incompatibility with the whole “care” part, but in truth, most of us need look no further than our own exasperating experiences navigating the broken, byzantine system. We can and must do better.

Take Action: Tell Congress to defend Medicaid and CHIP!

Ron DeSantis flip flops on Ukraine AGAIN, now calls Putin a “war criminal”

Florida Gov. and Trump whipping post Ron DeSantis changed his tune on Vladimir Putin’s brutal invasion of Ukraine yet again, abandoning unilaterally lambasted comments he made last week suggesting the war was nothing more than a regional territorial dispute. In Ron’s defense, he’s been really busy protecting Floridians from super scary gay folks, going to war with the world’s most famous mouse, and banning books with big words in them, so he’s likely had very little time to read up on geopolitical crises unfolding overseas.

Trump lawyer ordered to turn over Mar-a-Lago case documents
A federal appeals court ordered a lawyer for Donald Trump to surrender documents in the investigation into the disgraced ex-president’s retention of classified records at his Florida estate — a significant win for the Justice Department, which has focused for months not only on Trump’s hoarding of top secret documents at Mar-a-Lago but also on why the serial grifter and his lackeys resisted repeated demands to return them to the government.

Republicans make fatal mistake amid impending Trump indictment

No Lie with Brian Tyler Cohen: What a dumb move…

🚨 Brian Tyler Cohen launched a Spanish YouTube channel! The left has a huge problem reaching Spanish speaking audiences, and our vote share among Spanish speakers is actually declining, so please spread the Democrats’ message by subscribing to his channel (and watch some videos to get them going in the algorithm) by clicking here.

Democrats propose $300 billion investment to treat housing as human right
Declaring that homelessness and housing insecurity is the result of “a structural failure of a country that has refused to make safe and affordable housing a priority,” US Reps. Pramila Jayapal and Grace Meng reintroduced the Housing is a Human Right Act and called on the federal government to provide $300 billion to end the crisis facing unhoused people. “In the richest country in the world, it is a moral imperative that we take this issue head-on,” Jayapal said.

MAGA House Republicans scramble to protect Trump from Manhattan DA
Panicked House Republicans demanded testimony on Wednesday from two former Manhattan prosecutors as they continue fishing for ways to target and smear Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg as he wraps up a probe into Trump’s hush-money payment scheme to silence porn star Stormy Daniels ahead of the 2016 election. Circle the wagons, boys. Dear Leader is in trouble.

Federal prosecutors reveal Proud Boys witness was informant
Prosecutors disclosed Wednesday that a witness expected to testify for the defense at the seditious conspiracy trial of former Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio and four very tough guy associates was secretly acting as a government informant for nearly two years after the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the US Capitol. Oops!

Arizona Supreme Court rejects 6 of Kari Lake’s election challenges, kicks 1 back to lower court to review
Arizona’s top court has declined to hear Republican gubernatorial candidate and professional sore loser Kari Lake’s myriad challenges to her election loss last year, but kept the case alive by sending one of Lake’s claims related to signature verification procedures back to a county judge to review. Good luck with that, Kari.

Today’s Action: Tell the Atlanta City Council to stop the development of Cop City!

A massive police training center set to be built in Atlanta is threatening 381 acres of publicly owned forest. Brave environmental protesters have been setting up camp with tents in the trees for months, risking arrest and prosecution in defense of green space and common sense. Numerous protesters have been detained for protecting the forest, many about to be slapped with felony-level domestic terrorism charges so the federal government can make an example of them. One protester, 26-year-old Tortuguita, was fatally shot 13 times by police on Jan. 18, in what other activists are calling a state-sanctioned murder.

There is zero reason that a privately owned, corporate-funded tactical police training ground is important enough to bulldoze publicly owned forest land… let alone kill people over. Oh, did we mention the price of the project? Nearly $90 million.

With widespread calls for decreased police funding and increased climate action, the proposal to raze forest land for such a facility is grossly out of touch. There are plenty of initiatives that officials in Atlanta could be working on for the betterment of their residents — but instead, constituents’ voices have been ignored in favor of even more deference to law enforcement. Ongoing protests from residents in the area have made it clear that this is NOT what the community wants. One recent survey showed 98% of residents OPPOSE the building of Cop City. How long will it take until Atlanta council members wake up and listen to the actual people they were elected to serve?

Call the Atlanta City Council office at 404-330-6030 or email an Atlanta City Council member and demand they revoke the Cop City permit!
