Warning: 'Independent State Legislature' theory to subvert democracy
Warning: Next year, the corrupt, rightwing US Supreme Court will hear a lawsuit intended to legitimize the fringe legal theory known as the Independent State Legislature doctrine, a phony, made-up concept that declares state legislatures have sole authority over election administration, unchecked by state courts, governors, or state constitutions, with absolute power to overturn the voters' will and substitute their own slate of electors in presidential elections. Corrupt Ginni Thomas (wife of Justice Clarence Thomas) refuses to testify to House J6 Commitee. CA lawmakers reject unsecurable internet voting. Plus Desi Doyen has our latest 'Green News Report.'

Supreme Court guts EPA authority, and other rulings
In a 6-3 decision, the Republicans' radical rightwing Supreme Court super-majority stripped the EPA of authority to regulate climate-warming emissions from power plants and act on the climate crisis, which could also curtail other federal agencies' actions. Slate's Supreme Court expert Mark Joseph Stern delves into the details of the ruling and its implications, other shocking rulings handed down by the rightwing Court in just the last few days, options for court reform, and an ominous case next term that could spell the end of American democracy.

Former top Trump White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson testified to Trump's fits of rage at key moments as the plot failed; how Trump and his top aides knew violence was likely on Jan. 6 but took no action to stop it; Trump knew his supporters were armed when he urged them to storm the Capitol to stop the peaceful transfer of power; top Trump insiders sought pardons for their roles in the failed coup attempt, and more.

Election propaganda; Voter fraud
Today we debunk the new pretend documentary from convicted rightwing election fraudster and rightwing activist Dinesh D'Souza, "2000 Mules," which, among a host of fabricated claims for which it presents no evidence, also absurdly asserts that publicly-available cell phone geo-location data somehow proves people used secure ballot drop boxes to 'steal' the 2020 election from Trump. White Republican in AZ receives slap on the wrist for intentionally committing voter fraud, highlighting deep racial disparities in sentencing of black and brown voters who mistakenly, unknowingly tried to vote while ineligible.

New monthly jobs report breaks all-time record and wages are rising, with Pres. Biden's jobs-creation record far surpassing Trump's first three years. Salon columnist Heather 'Digby' Parton discusses the fallout from the stunning leak of a SCOTUS majority draft opinion that would overturn the landmark law 'Roe v. Wade' in its entirety, how the GOP's unprecedented removal of privacy rights will impact all Americans, how Democrats can respond aggressively to protect long-established freedoms, and more.

Labor rights; Rights and freedoms under attack
The Obamas released an eloquent statement addressing the leaked draft Supreme Court opinion that overturns Roe v. Wade, ending a woman's constitutional right to make her own reproductive choices. They warn that all privacy rights are now at risk of being dismantled by Republicans, and urge all Americans to take action to preserve our rights and freedoms. Jordan Zakarin explains the latest (mostly encouraging) developments in labor rights, as a surge of workers across the country organize for better wages and working conditions, overcoming million-dollar union-busting campaigns from behemoth corporations like Amazon, Starbucks and Delta.

OH, IN primary results; 14th Amendment; Environment
Notable results from the 2022 primaries in Ohio and Indiana on Tuesday, which included a fresh round of computerized voting system failures. Federal court forced Ohio to vote using maps heavily gerrymandered by Republicans that violate the state's constitution. All of Trump's endorsed candidates won their GOP primaries, including former Never-Trumper turned Trump acolyte, JD Vance. A truly bizarre exchange in a voter challenge to insurrectionist Rep. Madison Cawthorn's (R-NC) eligibility to run for reelection. Former Trump official claims Trump asked why the US military couldn't shoot Black Lives Matter protesters in the street.
