QAnon Candidate Marjorie Greene Accuses Runoff Competitor Of Defamation

Marjorie Greene, a Republican candidate in Georgia’s 14th district and outspoken supporter of the QAnon conspiracy theory, lawyered up Wednesday to accuse her opponent of defamation.  Greene is facing John Cowan, a neurosurgeon, in an August 11 runoff.

Maxine Waters Foe Omar Navarro Gets Out of Jail And Attempts to Destroy Fellow Republican

Pro-Trump internet personality Omar Navarro emerged from a six-month stint in jail on a stalking charge last month, and immediately registered to run for Congress. Navarro, a perennial challenger to Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), has registered to run for her seat again in 2022—assuming, perhaps logically, that Waters will once again prevail in her re-election request this November. But Navarro, who had nearly $50,000 in his campaign bank account as of March 31 even while he served his jail term, is...

As Trump Rails Against Voting By Mail, His GOP Allies Fear Dampened Turnout

President Donald Trump is the warped King Midas of our time — everything he touches is politicized. Voting by mail is no exception. As recently as Friday, he retweeted an emphatic assertion from his campaign’s account: “Mail-In Ballots will lead to MASSIVE electoral fraud and a RIGGED 2020 Election. We cannot let it happen!” But some of his Republican allies are worried that Trump’s curse, rallying his supporters to hate what he hates and his opponents to love it, will doom his party. “It’s v...

NJ Governor Urges National Mask Requirement: ‘Not Debatable’

New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy (D) on Sunday said that there should be a national mask requirement to combat the spread of COVID-19 as cases spike in several cities, during an interview on MSNBC. When asked about President Trump’s baseless claim during a Fourth of July event at the White House saying that 99% of coronavirus cases are “harmless,” Murphy responded “this thing is lethal” and that New Jersey “paid an enormous price” before calling for a “national strategy.” “We’ve lost over 13,000 co...

You can’t cancel American history: Gloria Romero

As an East Los Angeles Latina with a long history of police reform advocacy, I was horrified to see the brutal killing of George Floyd. I joined calls for the prosecution of officers involved in his murder, joining Americans of disparate political persuasions in this demand. But what started as a righteous, mostly peaceful protest against the horrific murder of George Floyd with chants that Black Lives Matter has morphed into a misguided attempted hijacking of, particularly, the Democratic Party...

Trump Vows To Veto Defense Bill If It Includes Provision To Remove Confederate Names From Military Bases

President Trump vowed late Tuesday that he would veto this year’s proposed $740 billion annual defense bill if an amendment is included that would require the renaming of bases named after Confederate military leaders. The pledge to veto the amendment came in a late night tweet reaffirming Trump’s earlier claim to “not even consider the renaming” of military bases as part of the National Defense Authorization Act.  The president mocked Sen.

Dem climate plan would end greenhouse gas emissions by 2050

House Democrats on Tuesday unveiled a plan to address climate change that would set a goal of net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, while pushing renewable energy such as wind and solar power and addressing environmental contamination that disproportionately harms low-income and minority communities. The election-year plan backed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other leaders is less ambitious than a sweeping Green New Deal that a group of progressive Democrats outlined last year to comba...

‘John Lewis: Good Trouble’ Film Review: Portrait of Civil Rights Icon Couldn’t Be More Timely

“John Lewis: Good Trouble,” a documentary about the civil rights crusader who became a 17-term Democratic congressman from Georgia, is a movie that could scarcely be any timelier.And it’s also, strangely enough, a movie that feels outside of the current time.How timely? Well, a couple of weeks before the premiere of the film, director Ava DuVernay and many others endorsed a proposal to rename the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama, for Lewis, who suffered a fractured skull when he was beaten...

The Trump administration was set to brief select members of Congress on the matter Monday. The intelligence assessments came amid Trump’s push to withdraw the U.S. from Afghanistan and suggested Russia was making overtures to militant...

Facebook and advertisers are locked in an image war, and advertisers are winning

Major advertisers like Unilever, Verizon, and Honda said they would halt ads on Facebook after civil rights groups called on the social platform to better police hate speech and misinformation. The moves by big brands is unlikely to make a big dent in Facebook's $70 billion advertising business since most of its advertisers are small to midsize marketers. Meanwhile, these boycott statements are temporary and vaguely written, which could make it easier for brands to resume spending after July w...

Democrats renew health care attacks on GOP as virus builds
