News Roundup: Secret Service knew of pre-coup threats to Pelosi; DeSantis sued for 'illegal' firing

News broke today that the Secret Service knew about threats to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi days before the Jan. 6 coup attempt, but they didn't tell her or the U.S. Capitol Police about those threats until the violence was already underway. This adds another wrinkle to the "accidental" scrubbing of Secret Service communications from before and during...

Fresh off of vacation, Tucker Carlson packs a week worth of Republican lies into a few sentences

Tucker Carlson was on vacation last week as Republican disinformation about the IRS really took off, but on Monday, he made up for lost time. To recap, Republicans have been falsely claiming that the Biden administration planned, using funding from the Inflation Reduction Act, to hire 87,000 IRS “agents.” They often point to an already existing...

Wait till you learn about the woman who unseated Liz Cheney. She’s a hot mess in the worst sense

Tuesday, Rep. Liz Cheney, a fourth-generation Wyomingite, lost her congressional seat in Wyoming to Harriet Hageman, an attorney reviled for her unrelenting attacks on the environment who has, most recently, been seen offering rage-inducing and boggling comments about President Joe Biden. Although not much is really known about the Republican...

ACLU calls for independent probe after yet another deadly vehicle pursuit by Border Patrol

The death toll related to Border Patrol’s vehicle pursuits continue to climb, following a crash in Santa Teresa, New Mexico, on July 27 that killed two people and left 10 others injured. The New Mexico and Texas chapters of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) are urging border officials to conduct an independent investigation into the crash, and...

School board votes in favor of ban on LGBTQ Pride flags in spite of protests from students

If there’s one thing conservatives love, it’s stomping down on LGBTQ+ youth and allies. The group that likes to describe themselves as having family values is dead set on terrorizing the lives of queer people just in time to garner hate votes in November, and their hate campaigns include literal children. As Daily Kos has continued to cover, Republicans...

Marsha Blackburn's tweet about 'open borders' and increased drug seizures makes no sense

Republicans have no serious plans to address various issues facing the nation. God forbid they might actually have to put in some work when they can just blame immigrants for things. It’s much easier to point at brown people and say, ”They’re the cause of all your problems!” rather than getting to the root cause of the issues. It’s just not sexy, some...

'Even on Biden’s Big Day, He’s Still in Trump’s Long Shadow' is a heck of a take

Our patience for political theater criticism around these parts tends to wax and wane. Yes, pondering the optics of a political event or debate is a worthwhile endeavor, if the job at hand is purely to analyze which political figures are Winning or Losing the political narrative, but national newspapers and, especially, television networks have long...

Chuck Schumer must make the Senate vote on protections for pregnant workers, before it's too late

Senate Democrats have been getting stuff done for a change, using reconciliation to get the Inflation Reduction Act past unified Republican opposition and passing bipartisan bills to provide care for veterans exposed to toxic burn pits, domestic semiconductor manufacturing, and guns (albeit in a very modest way). But there’s another important bill with...

Andrew Warren, Florida state attorney ousted by DeSantis, strikes back with First Amendment lawsuit

When Gov. Ron DeSantis suspended Hillsborough County State Attorney Andrew Warren in early August, he did so like so many dictators before him—audaciously and vindictively. What the small-minded governor wasn’t counting on was being hit with a lawsuit weeks later. According to Politico, Warren filed a federal lawsuit against DeSantis Wednesday,...

Secret Service failed to share threat to Pelosi until the Capitol was already under attack

The Secret Service knew about a threat to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi days ahead of the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol—but didn’t pass the information along to the United States Capitol Police until the attack was already underway, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington reports. “January 6 starts #1776 all over again…Fight...
