PHILADELPHIA — John Fetterman is president of the Pennsylvania Senate, but he doesn’t have a lot of friends among the senators. As lieutenant governor, one of Fetterman’s few official duties is to preside over state Senate sessions in the body’s ornate chamber in Harrisburg. But not one Senate member, including the 20 Democrats from his own party, publicly supports his campaign for U.S. Senate. None of the 90 Democrats serving in the state House do either. And across the state, almost no elected officials have endorsed him. A rare exception is Scranton Mayor Paige Cognetti, who endorsed Fetter...

Appearing on MSNBC with host Alex Witt, State Sen. Roland Gutierrez who represents the district that was home to a mass shooting at an elementary school on Tuesday, hammered Gov. Greg Abbott for not doing anything to limit the availability to purchase high-powered weapons and then having the audacity to speak to an NRA convention just days after the 19 children and two adults were murdered by a gunman.
Noting that Abbott used his speech to lament the "evil" in the world that he blames for mass shootings, Guiterrez begged to differ.
"Last night, a speaker after speaker denounced the massacre," host Witt prompted the lawmaker. "They insisted that any new gun laws are not the answers to prevent future tragedies. Sir, it feels like statistics are indicating otherwise, and the feelings of the vast majority of Americans are simply being ignored. Even right there, it is like the speakers are playing to the crowd in the convention center. They are ignoring the throngs of protesters outside. What is your reaction to their tin ear?"
"I think it is the most disgusting thing coming to a community three days after a massacre like this, they should have canceled," he began. "They refused."
"Abbott should not have gone, he says 'Well, I didn't go,' well he sure sent us a video in support thereof, right?', he continued "He talking about mental health, talking about evil. The only evil that we have in Texas is that we have a feckless leader. That he has refused to do anything on this issue, even a modicum of gun-sense sense. That is the evil in Texas."
"Governor Abbott was probably pulling a CYA by not attending the convention," host Witt added. "He claimed he was busy doing other things. Perhaps."

Speaking outside of a Cheyenne, Wyoming rally that will feature an appearance by former president Donald Trump on Saturday night, MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell launched into a frantic conspiracy rant claiming that Georgia's Republican primary was stolen by the candidates who did not receive Trump's endorsement.
Prompted by a RSBN reporter, Lindell blurted that the election results were tampered with via the use of "algorithms."
"It was stolen, there were algorithms used in Georgia but we caught them," he claimed," he claimed before adding, "We were watching, everyone was watching this time."
Unable to recall the name of Rep. Jody Hice (R-GA) who lost to Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger in the primary despite the endorsement of Trump, Lindell, soldiered on claiming, "Everything in Georgia was stolen."
He later added, "Brad Raffensperger is the biggest criminal in the country... Brad gets 51 percent? No he didn't , he stole it!"

According to a report from Reuters, Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio was informed late Friday night that he must remain in jail pending his trial on criminal charges related to his Jan 6th Capitol riot activities.
Tarrio -- who has also been accused of being an FBI informant -- has been accused by prosecutors of being an active leader on Jan. 6, who encouraged his followers to not leave the Capitol after they forced lawmakers to flee for their lives.
In his ruling, U.S. District Judge Timothy Kelly said the evidence against Tarrio is "very strong," reports Reuters, adding the judge also wrote, "Tarrio 'has the skill set, resources, and networks to plan similar challenges to the lawful functioning of the United States government in the future."
Tarrio's latest bid for freedom came after a judge in Florida also ruled against his release.
Reuters adds, "Tarrio is among the most high-profile of more than 775 people criminally charged for their roles in the assault on the Capitol by supporters of then-President Donald Trump in an effort to keep Congress from certifying Joe Biden's election victory."
