New racist text messages show Tucker’s supposed last straw with Fox

Tucker’s racist texts are out! Yes, they are every bit as racist as the racist things the racist host said on his racist show on the racist network. Fox wants you to believe they fired him for that, not because they paid $789 million for his lies. Suuure. [RETWEET THAT!]

Take Action: Kick Fox News off the air for inciting violence against the government!

VIDEO OF THE DAY: Tucker Carlson caught on tape mocking his own Fox viewers

As it turns out, the disgraced former host had nothing but disdain for the conservatives who were sitting at home vacuuming up his ignorant slop night after night.

Take Action: Impeach Clarence Thomas!

Democrats find their champion in the fight against Republican bullying

Pramilia Jayapal for Congress: Instead of doing anything to protect our kids from the scourge of gun violence, Republicans are spending all their time targeting LGBTQ kids with hateful discrimination laws and trying to force children to have children. As chair of the Progressive Caucus, Pramila Jayapal is leading the efforts to stop Republicans’ schemes to legislate bigotry and protect our children from hate and violence. Can you chip in to support her critical work?


Democrats unveil plan to bypass McCarthy on debt ceiling increase
As the Republican Party holds the global economy hostage with a threat to force the US to default on debt it’s already incurred, Democrats are working to force an end to the standoff with the introduction of a discharge petition — a parliamentary maneuver that could force a vote to raise the debt ceiling with a simple majority of the House. To succeed, Democrats need just five reasonable Republicans to join them — just five members of the Republican House caucus who would rather save the global economy and do the fiscally responsible thing than tank it all in the hopes of scoring cheap political points with the most ignorant corners of their base. Just five. So yeah… not looking great.

Take Action: Tell Congress to put an end to Republicans holding us hostage with the debt ceiling!


Texas Senate passes bill allowing state to throw out Harris county election results
The Texas GOP wrote a law specifically targeting the most populous county in Texas so they can “re-run” the election if they feel like they might “run out of ballots” — which we all know translates to “if they feel like they’re losing,” because “democracy” to the GOP means “cheat until you win!” [RETWEET THAT!]

Take Action: Pass the Supreme Court Ethics Act!

Steven Crowder exposed himself at work, ex-staffers say

Color us shocked that the right-wing troll known for arguing “rape culture is a myth” has turned out to be a vile misogynist behind closed doors. First a tape leaks of him abusing his then pregnant wife, now we learn he tormented co-workers too. Shocked! [RETWEET THAT!]

Take Action: Demand NO guns on college campuses!


Director of CIA had private meetings with Jeffery Epstein at his townhouse
There are bad ideas, there are worse ideas, and then there is meeting with a billionaire arch-pedophile AFTER he has already been found guilty of heinous sex crimes, and we have questions.

WHOA: MORE Fox hosts on the chopping block after Tucker’s firing

No Lie with Brian Tyler Cohen: Did not expect this…


Alabama mother denied abortion despite fetus’ “negligible” chance of survival
The Republican war on a woman’s right to choose was never really about “protecting life” because even in instances where there is little to NO chance of life actually emerging from a pregnancy they insist on blocking access to abortion. This is about controlling women’s bodies, plain and simple. [RETWEET THAT!]


Man acting erratically on subway is murdered by fellow passenger
A homeless man experiencing a mental health crisis was choked to death by a Marine in broad daylight, who was then…RELEASED without charge? Last time we checked, murder was illegal!


Police release bodycam footage of officer shooting emotional support dog during wellness check
According to the Justice Department, American cops shoot at least 10,000 pet dogs annually with some estimates putting that number closer to six figures. It’s hard to even process that staggering fact unless one accepts that there is a hunger for violence inside our police departments. The police chief of course excused the officer’s actions, claiming that reportedly very friendly 10-year-old goldendoodle had “boxed in the officer” and left him no recourse but to shoot it in the face. Right. What a terrifying ordeal. We’re sure the person in need felt much better after this “wellness check.”


Ex-cop fired after dozens of misconduct allegations, racist social media posts, and allegations of excessive force is getting his badge back
Police love to say that a terrible cop is just “one bad apple” but then time and again they refuse to remove that apple from the bunch even when it’s clearly rotten beyond all recognition.

Today’s Action: Pass the PRO Act and protect the right to unionize! 

Monday was May Day, a day commemorating the ups and downs of the labor movement. Though labor movements have been around for centuries, still today corrupt bigwigs are working overtime to ensure their employees aren’t compensated properly for their work in the face of growing worker power. The National Labor Relation Board’s Seattle office filed a complaint against Starbucks last year for violating US labor law with extreme union-busting tactics, such as withholding benefits and pay raises from unionizing stores. Just two months ago, corporate employees of the coffee giant sent an open letter fighting back against the store’s continued reaction to union efforts. We can’t allow workers to continue fighting these greedy corporations on their own — it’s time for our legislators to step up and protect the right to unionize. 

Starbucks is far from the only guilty corporation. Currently, the longest newspaper strike in decades is taking place at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. The workers have been on strike for more than six months demanding better healthcare and wages. There’s strength in numbers, and the labor movement certainly has that, but if certain senators don’t stop holding up the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act to provide more equitable conditions for all workers, the fallout across the American workforce will only worsen. 

The fact is, when unions thrive, American workers and families thrive. It’s really that simple. Corporate America’s desperate efforts to get everyone back to work has reminded workers everywhere they’re worth more than low pay, low benefits, long hours, and emotional abuse from unappreciative bosses.   

Call (202-224-3121) or write your senators and ask them to support the PRO Act in solidarity with the growing labor movement across the country! Send them this petition with almost 40,000 signatures in favor of its passage!
