Special master to Trump’s lawyers: “You can’t have your cake and eat it”

Trump got his wish of a special master — but Judge Raymond Dearie is apparently in no mood to rubber stamp Trump’s bullshit excuses. Dearie was positively condescending when Trump’s lawyers were unwilling to produce any evidence saying that the stolen documents were declassified… because there isn’t any.

Tucker Carlson calls for violence against teachers and doctors for telling kids that gay people exist
The Fox News rabble-rouser unleashed a hateful tirade against LGBTQ people and their allies Monday and suggested that teaching children about queer identities is equivalent to a sex crime that parents have a “moral duty” to “fight back against,” no matter what “the law says.” This kind of rhetoric will absolutely get people hurt, and he know it. How Tucker is able to remain on the air is a question we all need to grapple with.

Manchin whines about “revenge politics” scuttling his permit plan

Alabama sidesteps compensation for survivor of 1963 KKK blast
Sarah Collins Rudolph, the sole survivor of the horrifying terrorist attack that killed four Black girls at an Alabama church in 1963, still has medical issues to this day from the bombing. But the state of Alabama seems to be in no hurry to do anything about it beyond offering an “apology” for then-Governor George C. Wallace’s white supremacist rhetoric that helped incite the attack. The families of the other victims have all been compensated already.

The ranks of the ultra-rich reach an all time high as a person dies from hunger every four seconds
50 million people are on the brink of starvation in 45 countries as the share of the world’s wealth held by the 1% increased from 44% to 46% last year.

DEEP DIVE: Puerto Rico, America’s neglected stepchild


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

The National Labor Relation Board’s Seattle office recently filed a complaint against coffee giant Starbucks for violating US labor law with union-busting tactics, such as withholding benefits and pay raises from unionizing stores. And Starbucks is far from the only guilty corporation. In the face of worker power, corrupt bigwigs are working overtime to ensure their employees aren’t compensated properly for their work. 

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. 

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!

There were 14 healthcare labor strikes over the course of 2021 alone. Nurses and other frontline workers put their physical and mental health on the line throughout the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the consequences have been staggering. An estimated 500,000 nurses have planned to leave the profession by the end of 2022. With a projected shortage of 1.1 million nurses quickly approaching, there is no reason that healthcare workers should still be fighting for basic workplace rights. 

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 demand they support the PRO Act! Send them this petition with almost 40,000 signatures in favor of its passage!
