Fox News has a vaccine mandate for its employees tho….
Alex Berenson tells Fox viewers: "The mRNA COVID vaccines need to be withdrawn from the market. No one should get them. No one should get boosted. No one should get double boosted. They are a dangerous and ineffective product at this point."

Tuckyo Rose is in full bloom on #Russia's state TV. Multiple clips of Tucker Carlson's rants are being used to corroborate the pro-Kremlin talking points, simultaneously attacking America, Biden, NATO and Ukraine.

The people who delight in using their juvenile Let’s Go Brandon phrase to openly degrade our President, now clutch their pearls that he called out a rude, unprofessional reporter under his breath.

Today would be an even better day for you to step aside and allow a Democrat who can truly fight Mitch McConnell to step up and lead.
Today would be a great day for President Biden and Vice President Harris to #CancelStudentDebt.

I stand proudly behind President Biden. They are going to hate you, disrespect you, and lie about you anyway. So go BOLD! Use the power of the presidency. Issue Executive Orders and move ahead with your agenda which will help all Americans!

Just a reminder that all the progress we’ve made was not inevitable, and it could go away again if we don’t keep fighting. In some places it is already being lost with young LGBT people paying the price.

I keep seeing people tweeting that Sinema is going to change parties. Reality check: Jeff Flake didn't run for re-election because he wasn't far enough right for the AZ Republicans. You think they're getting behind a bisexual, pro-choice woman with rainbow hair and funky clothes?

At hearing on Eastman emails, lawyer for Chapman U backs 1/6 panel subpoena to turn over 19,000 emails on its server relating to prof's representation of Trump. Says any use of university server for that purpose was "improper, unauthorized and I liken to contraband."

School board races are one of @runforsomething's 2022 priorities for this exact reason. If you want to run to stop book banning or totally incorrect history teaching or any other batshit thing far-right school board members are pushing, we'll help you. runforwhat.net
Here’s your weekly reminder that school boards are a central focus of Republicans and far right hate groups. Make sure you have recruited candidates to run this year if you have an election (most districts do this annually). Check your election date. Don’t be caught flat-footed!

GET HIM!!!! “A panel of Fulton County judges on Monday cleared the way for a special grand jury to be used as part of District Attorney Fani Willis’ investigation of Trump and his efforts to overturn Georgia’s 2020 election results.” ajc.com/news/atlanta-news/br…

Leave it to Pompeo to talk up our adversary Putin, when he is on the brink of invading our ally and possibly triggering a wider war. Lest we forget Pompeo was also a farce in Congress, and tweeted lock her up. He is a disgrace!

This is astonishing. Mike Pompeo says that deterrence of Russia should have begun long ago. Indeed he is right: Deterrence should have begun during the Trump administration, when Pompeo was Secretary of State. Where was he all that time? foxnews.com/opinion/russia-u…

And it surprises no one that we have gone from CRT to LGBTQ+ as being erased in public schools. Every marginalized group with be targeted. Not. A. Surprise. Haters going to hate.
