Yesterday, Dave Rubin claimed that "everything that Kanye West is doing is leftist" because he's "grouping people based off of race and religion." That's at least as stupid as most of the things Trump says, if not stupider. What do you think?

It was just one loophole. But it was big enough to swallow the global economy.

Wall Street created a loophole almost a decade ago, to escape U.S. regulation of complex financial trades related to all commodities. Said loophole allows Wall Street speculators to gamble on commodity prices, driving inflation through the roof!

Ultimately, this is an issue that the CFTC (Commodity Futures Trading Commission) needs to deal with.

A handful of congressional Democrats are now turning their attention to this arcane loophole that TYT previously reported is driving high prices for gas and food. On Thursday, Senate Democrats have an opportunity to ask the Chair of the CFTC, Rostin Behnam, directly why he hasn't acted to close the loophole during their hearing on the FTX scandal.

It's time for Democrats to stand up and hold Wall Street accountable! Sign and share our petition so that we can demand that our elected officials create some #RegulationForInflation.

From Wall Street bailouts, to PPP Loans, our government is always giving rich–often white–people handouts while the rest of us work hard to get by.

Legacy Admissions are no different.

They give rich, mostly white, students a boost in college admissions that are completely void of any merit. In fact, at top ten universities, more rich white students are admitted through Legacy Admissions practices than Black and Latino students are admitted through Affirmative Action!

This isn’t fair.

That’s why we’re glad that Rep. Jamaal Bowman and Senator Jeff Merkley have introduced the Fair College Admissions for Students Act to stop the practice of Affirmative Action for rich white people: Legacy Admissions.

If you’d like to see Congress pass the Fair College Admissions for Students Act, repost this petition using the hashtag #LoseTheLegacy, tag @tytnation, and tell Congress why we need to end Legacy Admissions.

Members of the House are urging Democratic Party leadership to not attach a bill fast-tracking pipeline permits to must-pass legislation to fund the federal government past the end of next month.

The pipeline-permitting bill was promised to Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) by Sen. Maj. Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) in return for Manchin supporting the Inflation Reduction Act. But progressives and environmental justice advocates have warned that the bill will make it easier for fossil fuel companies to overcome community opposition to potentially dangerous projects.

Despite progressive opposition, some House Democrats might feel compelled to support the Manchin bill if Pelosi and Hoyer tie it to a resolution to keep the government funded past Sept. 30. Progressive members have signed a letter asking House Democrats to oppose such a move which gives progressives a shot at killing it.

But if Speaker Pelosi moves forward with the pipeline permits included, she will be forcing progressives to vote "NO" on the bill overall.

Let's make our voices heard and tell Speaker Pelosi: don't force progressives to vote against the Budget Bill.

The working people of California made their voices heard loud and clear when more than ONE MILLION Californians signed the California Living Wage Act proposal to get an $18 minimum wage on the ballot in November. However, the California Secretary of State is claiming that the signatures are not valid because they were submitted on July 13th instead of June 30th, despite local election officials’ insistence that July 13th is the correct date. When asked for his opinion by the press, Gov. Newsom’s office merely reiterated that the date for submitting signatures has passed and remained silent on holding a special election.

In Gavin Newsom’s role as the Governor of California, it’s time for him to step up to the plate and help the working class. We, the undersigned, call on Governor Gavin Newsom to hold a special election so the working people of California can get a $6,240 raise - right now!
