Trump tries to backtrack after calling for the termination of the US Constitution

The disgraced ex-president trashed America’s founding document in a preposterous call for the restoration of his powers and now wants us to believe that he would never ever do or demand such a thing, even though we can see that he in fact did since he posted it on the internet.

Take Action: Indict Ivanka Trump!

Herschel Walker’s closing message: “I don’t even know what the heck is a pronoun”
True to form, the bumbling GOP Senate candidate punctuated his impressively incoherent campaign with a head-scratcher of a closing — uh, okay, why not — “argument.” Herschel Walker isn’t qualified to operate an electric toothbrush, let alone take a seat in the US Senate. Dear gods above, let today be the last day we speak of this Republican puppet.

Take Action: Reject and disqualify Trump from running for President!

Trump screws over GOP responding to Hunter Biden laptop saga

No Lie with Brian Tyler Cohen: Not a smart move.

9 million Americans were prematurely told they were approved for student debt forgiveness
In November, 16 million debt relief applicants were sent messages informing them that they had been approved to have up to $20,000 in student loans forgiven. Unfortunately, an additional nine million people also received emails saying they too had received loan forgiveness when in fact, the process had been shuttered entirely thanks to Donald Trump’s planted minions in the federal judiciary, who will stop at nothing to obstruct the Biden administration and keep the American people from seeing any relief from a predatory and exploitative system.

Take Action: Don’t let Republicans starve critical investments in children and healthcare!

Tampa police chief quits after trying to avoid golf cart ticket
The top cop in Tampa, Florida, went viral after body-cam footage showed her being stopped by a Pinellas County sheriff’s deputy and trying to exploit her badge to wiggle out of trouble. Now, she’s stepped down, proving that public pressure can get results and it IS possible to, ya know, occasionally hold law enforcement accountable.

Take Action: Protect renters from unfair evictions!

Supreme Court Justice Alito jokes about Black Santa and kids in KKK costumes during arguments in same-sex weddings case

The frivolous, performative lawsuit brought by a “Christian” computer company seeking to deny gay people service that — and we cannot stress this enough — has not actually had any gay people request its services, was treated as an opportunity by far-right extremist Samuel Alito as a chance to work on his standup bits, which included a deeply offensive hypothetical about white children wearing KKK costumes during a visit with “Black Santa.” Alito, who has recently come under scrutiny for his appalling lack of anything resembling judicical ethics, has made it clear that he sees the rights of LGBTQ Americans as a joke and is eager to use his position to disenfranchise and discriminate against them.

Take Action: Tell Congress to break up Big Tech’s monopolies!

Elon Musk’s Neuralink faces federal probe, employee backlash over animal tests
The tech bozo billionaire is now responsible for killing at least 1,500 animals, including sheep, pigs, and monkeys, as part of his nightmarish mission to transform the Earth into a dystopia where the most annoying men in the world have a direct plug into your brain. Thankfully, the feds are taking a look.

Right-wing billionaires are destroying America’s newsrooms

Courier Newsroom: With our small-town newsrooms being turned into Trump’s propaganda outlets by Sinclair Broadcasting, it’s harder than ever to find factual, value-based news coverage at the local level. Courier Newsroom is leading the fight against right-wing misinformation and conspiracies by building the largest left-leaning local news network in the country. Can you chip in to help keep our democracy healthy and put a stop to Trump’s dangerous conspiracies?

Michael Avenatti sentenced to 14 years in prison for stealing millions from clients
The crooked lawyer shot to fame for representing Stormy Daniels in her hush-money scandal involving serial cheater Donald Trump. At one point, Avenatti was even delusionally considering pursuing the Democratic nomination for president. In the end, it turns out he was just another white collar criminal scumbag. Maybe they should save the cell next to him for Donnie.

Florida deputy killed after officer roommate “jokingly” fires gun he thought was unloaded, officials say
It appears that cops cannot be trusted to not shoot each other, let alone other people.

Biden administration broadens immigration program for Haitian migrants, citing humanitarian crisis
The broadening program will allow certain Haitian immigrants to live and work in the country without fear of deportation due to the deteriorating humanitarian crisis in the destitute Caribbean nation, which has been beset by an outbreak of violence in recent months. It’s a welcome respite from the Biden administration, which had previously deported as many Haitians in one year (20,000+) as the US had in the past twenty years.

Arizona certifies 2022 election despite GOP complaints
Sore losers and conspiracy theorists in the Arizona Republican Party have five days to file frivolous lawsuits challenging their stinging losses to Democrats in the midterms, which they almost assuredly will now do.

Today’s Action: Phone bank for Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock!

Today’s the day. The incumbent Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock and the observably awful, scandal-plagued GOP nominee, Herschel Walker, are finally facing off in Georgia’s long-awaited runoff election. Even though Democrats have already secured control of the Senate, one more seat in the upper chamber could mean the difference between advancing and safeguarding our progressive agenda or watching Republicans — set to take control of the House in a few weeks — roll back our hard-fought wins over the next two years.

It’s the final stretch, and we still need all hands on deck to 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. Today is the last day to help identify supporters of Sen. Warnock, talk to on-the-fence voters, and help get them to the polls!

Georgia Votes is still hosting phone-banking parties for Raphael Warnock all day today until the polls close! Don’t wake up tomorrow wishing you had done more — commit to a final shift today and help keep Georgia blue!


Required Reading for the Resistance. Actions that make a difference.
