“This week, Briahna Joy Gray interviewed Sean Campbell, author of a viral story criticizing the murky finances of the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation. After raising 90 million dollars during 2020, at least 60 million remains undistributed and unaccounted for, and local organizers feel abandoned and/or undermined by national leadership. As BLM’s national leadership distanced itself from radical protesting and embraced corporate partnerships with UGG and Levis, local leader struggle to pay rent, and some of the families of the slain Black Americans whose tragic deaths sparked the movement feel dismissed. Meanwhile, most mainstream outlets have declined to devote resources to investigative reporting on this issue, and Campbell has been smeared as “racist” and “sexist” for simply following the paper trail. Here Campbell explain why he pursued this story, what he uncovered, and how you can support local BLM organizers.

“Republicans in Wisconsin are so desperate to overturn their state’s 2020 election results that they will listen to anyone willing to say there was fraud – including former felons who were convicted of fraud. Republicans recently heard testimony from a convicted felon about the alleged fraud that took place in 2020 as they continue to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to prove something that doesn’t exist. Farron Cousins explains what’s happening.

“Donald Trump has done so much, and many ask when this man will face his comeuppance and how it will happen. With that in mind, a claim on CNN by someone who knows Trump well says he WILL be indicted”

I will believe this when I see it…but, I hope it is true.

Donald Trump needs to never be U.S. president again.

His corruption and power mongering is off the charts…and he’s ripping this country apart.

How Did The MyPillow Guy Become Leader Of The Right Wing Crazies…

“Immediately following the 2020 election, MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell emerged as the man who was going to turn it all around and put Trump back into the White House. He had such a strong message that he even managed to gain an audience with Republican Senators and the White House itself. The question that still needs to be answered is “WHY?” Why on earth did the pillow man become the leader of the right wing crazies? Farron Cousins attempts to answer that question.

“Republican Senator Marco Rubio continues to show the world just how clueless he can be. Rubio recently said that he wants to change the rules for the Vice President regarding the Electoral vote certification (something Democrats are working towards) because he doesn’t want DEMOCRATS to steal the next election with Kamala Harris. Mike Pence echoed these comments, and Farron Cousins explains the backwards logic that these Republicans are using.

Ted Cruz Is Doing Damage Control For Capitol Rioters…

“Republican Senators Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio are not happy that Mitch McConnell recently called the Capitol Riot a “violent insurrection,” and they have been working tirelessly to change the definition of what happened that day. And the pair, along with plenty of other Republicans, have a good reason to NOT use that term – it carries far more weight in court, and the ripple effect could impact Donald Trump. Farron Cousins explains what’s happening.

A large chunk of the republican base is these people who support what happened on January 6th…

…If republican politicians piss off those people…their political career is screwed.
