Remember how Trump is being forced to pay $10,000 a day because he’s being held in contempt? Well a judge denied his appeal so he’s gotta pay up. More: CNBC
Note 18: So right now, Democratic leadership is supporting Rep. Henry Cuellar in Texas. Cuellar is the only anti-choice Democrat we have, and he’s running against pro-choice candidate Jessica Cisneros. Leadership needs to change course. No mixed signals here. Period.
This was a pretty cool Biden story from yesterday that none of us saw because we were all throwing shit at our televisons. More: Wall Street Journal
Congrats to Shontel Brown in Ohio for fending off a stupid and pointless primary challenge. More: NBC News
Note 21: Ok, SPs, let’s get on over to the news. But before we do, we have a message for any elected Dems who might be reading this — you’re losing your party through fear and caution. People fought to put you where you are, and they’re running out of patience waiting for you to fight for them. Do better. We’re all counting on you. And to you Sexy Patriots, well, stay sexy and have a great day.
After 50 years of demagoguery and violence, Republicans are finally getting what they want on abortion. And they’re so cowardly and ashamed of what they’ve done that they can’t even bring themselves to talk about it. Moscow Mitch could do nothing but stammer like an idiot child about the leak.

So Chad Wolf, Trump’s DHS secretary, altered and killed an intelligence report that showed Russia was favoring and helping Trump in the 2020 election.

We needed this one
In Ohio, Trump got his QAnon Jan. 6 candidates. But in Michigan, two big pieces of shit got flushed. Yeah, Robert Regan, who you might remember as the guy who said he would tell his daughter to to “just lie back and enjoy it” if she were being raped, lost his seat to a Democrat in a district Trump won by 16 points. We can beat these extremists. It’s closer than it should be, but there are still more good people than bad. Let’s build off this. More: Detroit News

So much of the media these days are pulling their punches and afraid to tell the truth because they don’t want to piss off their advertisers. Not us! Advertisers don’t want anything to do with us, and if they did, we would piss them off in like two seconds.
