President Biden can kill Trump’s disastrous oil pipeline project with the stroke of a pen!

But the President Biden can stop it without support from Congress.

Congress expected to impose contract on US railroad workers to avert strike, progressives move to add 7 sick days to railway deal
The railworkers are unwilling to budge on their reasonable demands for a mere six days of sick leave — so President Biden has asked Democratic leadership to intervene and force the contract they’ve already rejected upon them, rather than apply any kind of pressure or coercive energy towards the greedy rail conglomerates, whose CEOs personally earned over $200 million over the past three years. But all hope is not lost — Senator Bernie Sanders and the progressive caucus have sworn to hold up the bill until an amendment adding in sick leave days passes, and they may even have some Republican support.

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

Twitter stops policing COVID-19 misinformation under CEO Elon Musk
It’s not enough that the right-wing billionaire is driving the website into the ground by opening the floodgates to Nazis, insurrectionists and trolls, now he’s going to actually get people killed as dangerous lies about the pandemic will be free to spread like the virus itself.

Take Action: Tell Elon Musk to keep Trump off of Twitter for good!

RNC commissions “review” of party tactics after disastrous midterm
The GOP has assembled a crack team of idiots and weirdos including Kellyanne Conway, anti-LGBTQ hate group leader Tony Perkins, guy who allegedly faked an “attack” on himself at a campaign stop Lee Zeldin and the deeply off-putting Thiel ghoul Blake Masters to explain why they lost. Their choices in choosing the review board already give them the answers they’re looking for.

Elon Musk’s far-right Twitter gamble backfires

No Lie with Brian Tyler Cohen: Whoa.

LAPD serves search warrants in investigation of who recorded racist City Hall leak

Just one more argument for the need to slash police budgets.

Top DeSantis aides added in migrant flight lawsuit
Two top aides to the odious Florida governor were added as defendants in a potential class-action lawsuit stemming from the DeSantis administration’s incredibly cruel and almost certainly illegal trafficking of 49 migrants from Texas to Massachusetts in September.

US gun death rates hit highest levels in decades
The US gun death rate last year hit its highest mark in nearly three decades, and the rate among women has been growing faster than that of men, according to a new bombshell study. The greatest increase has hit Black women the hardest, leaving us with difficult questions about the sickness afflicting American society and the reckless proliferation of murderous weapons to an irresponsible civilian populace.

US Supreme Court mulls Biden immigration enforcement shift
The justices heard arguments in the administration’s request to overturn a judge’s ruling in favor of Texas and Louisiana that halted DHS guidelines narrowing the scope of those who can be targeted by immigration agents for arrest and deportation. The court’s three liberal members generally signaled support for the administration while the six conservatives appeared more divided, with Justice Samuel Alito embracing the arguments made by the states. Every day it becomes clearer and clearer that we must expand the court to neuter right-wing activism.

Today’s Action: Youth phone bank for Sen. Raphael Warnock!

We owe our historic midterm Senate hold to the youth vote. So many young people got out the vote this year, in fact, that it was the second highest youth vote in thirty years. It made Republicans so mad that some of them even started pushing to raise the voting age, so yeah— they’re a big deal. 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. Young people are a hugely important piece of the puzzle. 

That’s why it’s as important for young people to get involved in getting out the vote as they are in voting. Swing Left is hosting a youth-centered phone banking event TONIGHT from 6-8pm EST for the Georgia run-off. 

Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock will face the historically despicable Herschel Walker in the runoff NEXT WEEK. It’s no secret that one more seat in the Senate could mean the difference between advancing our progressive agenda or watching Joe Manchin obstruct and disrupt any further progress over the next two years, so reach out to the young progressives in your life and tell them to join the call. They don’t have to be a seasoned professional or a registered voter in Georgia to join this fight — they just need to be ready to channel the late, great John Lewis and stir up some “good trouble.”


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