Political Charge Weekly Recap 7/2

Weekly Recap

This week will no doubt mostly be remembered for 3 horrific Supreme Court decisions (killing affirmative action, allowing businesses to discriminate against protected classes like LGBTQ+, and rejecting Biden’s student debt relief program.) There’s no way around it — these decisions are an affront to minorities, protected classes, and young people who got an education.

But I refuse to let terrible news stand in the way of trumpeting the good. Let’s commit to fighting against the wave of Christian nationalism and racism sweeping the country. Be sure to check out my call to action!

Good News

SCOTUS ruled 6-3 (Kagan, Sotomayor, Jackson, Roberts, Kavanaugh, Barrett) to reject the independent state legislature theory in the case Moore v. Harper, effectively ending the ability of Republicans to try using fake electors like they did in the 2020 election

The Senate just confirmed Biden’s 100th district court judge

More media are picking up on the good news that is Biden’s economy! Also, check out (and share) the great website the White House put together to show all the infrastructure projects happening across the country: Investing in America

Inflation is at its lowest point in 2 years

Tucker Carlson’s Twitter audience has dropped by 89%

Fox News had to pay $12M in a settlement to Tucker’s former producer, who accused them of operating a hostile workplace and coercing her into providing false testimony in a deposition

Yusef Salaam, an exonerated member of the Central Park Five, appears to have won a Democratic primary race for a New York City Council seat in Harlem

Unlike SCOTUS, a full 80% of Americans said that racial discrimination is a big problem, according to a recent Monmouth poll

Rudy Giuliani was interviewed last week by federal prosecutors investigating Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election

A new Civiqs survey finds 63% of women disapprove of Gov. Ron DeSantis

Trump keeps attacking Ron DeSantis, Chris Christie attacks Trump relentlessly … never not going to be on the list

Call to Action

Not surprisingly, I got a lot of comments this week from my social media followers asking me what we could do to fight a Supreme Court that is actively taking the country backwards. Well, changing the makeup of the Supreme Court takes years, if not decades. Expanding the court can only happen if Congress passes a law. Biden cannot do it unilaterally.

Which means, the most important thing we can do is make sure we control the remaining two branches of government: Congress and the presidency. Commit today to voting in the 2024 election, and to finding a way to help get more people to the polls for that election. If you haven’t already, sign up with a group like Swing Left, Sister District, Vote Forward, or Postcards to Voters.
