May 2022 be a safe and prosperous year for you. A new member has been added to our newsletter team, and we have a lot to share. Thanks for stopping by!

Greene was banned from Facebook for 24 hours after sharing false information about the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak. Her Twitter account has also been permanently banned for spreading misinformation about COVID-19.
The American public says democracy is in danger after January 6
In a USA TODAY/Suffolk poll conducted one year after the attack on the Capitol, most Americans are concerned about the state of democracy in the United States. There is concern about the state of democracy in the United States among both Republicans and Democrats.
Different opinions also exist regarding the performance of the House select committee on Jan. 6. 53% of respondents consider the insurrection investigation “important for the future of democracy,” while 42% consider it “a waste of time.”
Democracy in the nation has not progressed much: Americans say it has become weaker than it was four years ago. A USA TODAY/Suffolk Poll conducted shortly after the attack found 70% of respondents shared the same view.
Another way to put it is that voters are still unsure about the effectiveness of our democratic institutions a year later.
