Poll: Distrust of Asian Americans is rising - https://www.axios.com/2022/05/04/asian-americans-covid-hate-survey
"Americans continue to wrongly blame people of Asian descent for the coronavirus, and a greater percentage are harboring distrust of their loyalties, according to a new report out this morning.
Why it matters: Asian Americans, who make up 7% of the U.S. population, feel increasingly isolated and discriminated against amid sustained anti-Asian violence and increasing anti-China political rhetoric.
State of play: 21% of U.S. adults now say Asian Americans are at least partly responsible for COVID — up from 11% in 2021."

The Damage Report: May 5, 2022

A new ad, put out by Meidas Touch, exposes the moments where Supreme Court Justices Alito, Gorsuch and Kavanaugh lied to the Senate about the precedent of upholding Roe v. Wade. John Iadarola and Viviana Vigil break it down on The Damage Report. Read more here: Manchin reviewing records of meetings with Brett Kavanaugh 'to find out what he said' about Roe: report - https://www.alternet.org/2022/05/brett-kavanaugh/?utm_source=pocket_mylist "U.S. Senator Joe Manchin, the only Democrat to vote to place Justice Brett Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court, says his office is reviewing the records it has of his pre-confirmation interview with the West Virginia lawmaker after a leaked draft opinion shows the court will strike down Roe. v. Wade. In 2018 Kavanaugh was confirmed in a 50-48 vote, after then-Senate Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell invoked the nuclear option and made Supreme Court nominations subject to just a simple majority vote. Legal experts, journalists and activists are investigating if the conservatives who, according to a Politico report voted in a Supreme Court closed door meeting to overturn the 49 year old decision that found abortion is a constitutional right, lied during their confirmation hearings." ** Become a TDR YouTube Member: http://www.youtube.com/thedamagereport/join Follow The Damage Report on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheDamageReportTYT/ Help build the Home of the Progressives http://tyt.com/JOIN Subscribe to The Damage Report YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/thedamagereport?sub_confirmation=1 Follow The Damage Report on TikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@thedamagereport?lang=en Follow The Damage Report on Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/thedamagereport/ Follow The Damage Report on Twitter: https://twitter.com/TheDamageReport #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks
Cinco De Mayo is typically celebrated in the U.S. as a cringe drinking holiday but originally it was celebrated in Mexico for a very different reason. John Iadarola and Viviana Vigil break it down on The Damage Report.

To him and his fellow UC Berkeley classmates he had gathered with to celebrate, Cinco de Mayo symbolized a David vs. Goliath myth about a small army overtaking its mighty invader. He assumed the holiday originated in Mexico, but it wasn't until decades later after combing through Spanish language newspapers that Hayes-Bautista, UCLA Center for the Study of Latino Health and Culture (CESLAC) director, discovered the true origins of one of the United States' biggest party holidays." ** Become a TDR YouTube Member: http://www.youtube.com/thedamagereport/join Follow The Damage Report on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheDamageReportTYT/ Help build the Home of the Progressives http://tyt.com/JOIN Subscribe to The Damage Report YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/thedamagereport?sub_confirmation=1 Follow The Damage Report on TikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@thedamagereport?lang=en Follow The Damage Report on Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/thedamagereport/ Follow The Damage Report on Twitter: https://twitter.com/TheDamageReport #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks

Greg Abbott said Wednesday that Texas would consider challenging a 1982 U.S. Supreme Court decision requiring states to offer free public education to all children, including those of undocumented immigrants. "Texas already long ago sued the federal government about having to incur the costs of the education program, in a case called Plyler versus Doe," Abbott said, speaking during an appearance on the Joe Pags show, a conservative radio talk show. "And the Supreme Court ruled against us on the issue. ... I think we will resurrect that case and challenge this issue again, because the expenses are extraordinary and the times are different than when Plyler versus Doe was issued many decades ago."" ** Become a TDR YouTube Member: http://www.youtube.com/thedamagereport/join Follow The Damage Report on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheDamageReportTYT/ Help build the Home of the Progressives http://tyt.com/JOIN Subscribe to The Damage Report YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/thedamagereport?sub_confirmation=1 Follow The Damage Report on TikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@thedamagereport?lang=en Follow The Damage Report on Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/thedamagereport/ Follow The Damage Report on Twitter: https://twitter.com/TheDamageReport #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks

But while the measure cleared the House Appropriations Committee on a 7-2 vote, at least one of the representatives voting in favor acknowledged the bill is unconstitutional. State Rep. Danny McCormick said his House Bill 813 should move forward even though the U.S. Supreme Court seems poised to overturn Roe v.
