20 Republican AGs sue USDA in order to keep LGBTQ+ kids from getting free lunches
After stripping rights away from women and forcing them to give birth, the GOP is now fighting to deny food to those children simply for being who they are. It’s clear their obsession with children’s lives is nothing but a monstrously cynical political ploy.

The $280 billion bill is meant to spur US chip manufacturing, though some progressives decry the deal as a handout to corporations who have shut down 700 plants and killed 150,000 American jobs over the past 20 years. Let’s hope there are some guarantees to make sure those jobs actually come back!

Department of Justice reaches $20 million settlement with Warren Buffet mortgage company over Philadelphia redlining
“This settlement is a stark reminder that redlining is not a problem from a bygone era.

U.S. economy shrinks for second straight quarter, igniting recession fears
The Fed’s aggressive interest rate hikes, intended to combat inflation, are predictably causing the economy to contract and raising fears of a recession. What a world we live in where instead of taking action to rein in corporate profits and power, we simply tank our own economy instead!


Protest around the world

Dispatches from Kim Jong Ron’s Theocratic Dystopia of Florida


Today’s Action: Tell the Department of Justice to punish Trump and his fans for threatening Jan 6 witnesses!

In the weeks since Cassidy Hutchinson’s brave testimony before the January 6th committee, she has been barraged with vicious death threats and harassment from rabid Trump fans (including quite a few Republicans in office.) She’s been sequestered with her family and a security detail ever since, a testament to just how eager Trump World is to use political violence to silence critics and protect their criminal leader.

Everyone and anyone who speaks out against Trump can expect to be flooded with death threats and hateful, vile harassment — often egged on by Trump himself. It’s unacceptable, and now it is even interfering with a critical investigation.

Call (202-353-1555) or write the Department of Justice and demand they put a stop to the harassment of January 6th witnesses!

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger refused to help Trump “find votes,” so Trump fans tormented his wife with horrifying, sexualized messages and broke into the home of his son’s widow. Arizona House Speaker Russell “Rusty” Bowers had protestors outside his house with weapons, playing videos calling him a pedophile. Election workers Ruby Freeman and Wandrea ArShaye “Shaye” Moss had their lives upended by harassment and threats.

Ordinary people shouldn’t have to live in fear of a would-be despot simply for doing the right thing. Enough is enough.

Call (202-353-1555) or write the DOJ to take action against those making threats against Trump critics!
