    UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres has said that if the world doesn't change course by 2020, we run the risk of runaway climate change. Mr Guterres said he was alarmed by the paralysis of world leaders on what he called the "defining issue" of our time. He wants heads of government to come to New York for a special climate conference next September. The call comes amid growing concerns over the slow pace of UN negotiations. Mr Guterres painted a grim picture of the impacts of climate change that he says have been felt all over the world this year,...

    More than 18,000 people marched Saturday in Paris as part of an international mobilization to show popular support for urgent measures to combat climate change in advance of a San Francisco summit. Crowds overflowed a plaza in front of City Hall before marching east to the Place de la Republique, carrying an urgent message that it’s up to the public to put global warming at the top of the political agenda. “Planet in Danger,” read some banners. Activists around the world encouraged “Rise for Climate” protests before the summit taking place Sept.12-Sept. 14. California’s governor proposed the event after President...

    Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senators Patty Murray (D-WA) and Maria Cantwell (D-WA) joined 17 of their Democratic colleagues in calling on the White House to make Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s complete White House record available to the Senate and the public.  “Access to a Supreme Court nominee’s full record is necessary for the Senate to fulfill its constitutional duty to advise and consent,” the senators wrote. “More important, it is essential for the American people to have confidence in our confirmation process.”“The rush and secrecy has left us to wonder what the White House is withholding from the American people,” the senators...

    The Democratic makeover is in full swing. **SNIP** Those tensions could come to a head if Pelosi struggles to be elected speaker. Even if she wins, it could be difficult for her to preside over a more liberal caucus. James, of the Collective PAC, said that's exactly the idea. "The status quo to me doesn't mean getting rid of people who have been in office a long time," she said. "It means you can't have the same mentality, you can't have the same goals. You can't have the same playbook. You've got to switch it up."

    Politico ^ | 9/03/18
    Just a decade ago, “socialism” was a dirty word in American politics. Debates over its merits were mostly limited to obscure blogs, niche magazines and political parties on the other side of the Atlantic. But more recently Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and a handful of other politicians have breathed new life into the label, injecting a radical alternate vision for the U.S. economy into the mainstream political debate. Ahead of the midterms, politicians like Ocasio-Cortez, Michigan’s Rashida Tlaib, and Kansas’ James Thompson have proudly held up their endorsements from Democratic Socialists of America, the country’s largest socialist group, whose numbers...

    California police shot and killed former “ER” actress Vanessa Marquez when they visited for a welfare check and she pulled a “BB-type” gun on them, according to a new report. Cops were called to Marquez’s South Pasadena home around 2 p.m. Thursday after a landlord reported that the woman was in some kind of trouble, Lt. Joe Mendoza of the LA Sheriff’s homicide bureau said at a press conference, The South Pasadenan reported. “At the time [of the shooting], there was an LA County mental health clinician here with the officers,” Mendoza said. “They began to communicate with her; she...

    3 min video at link. The hosts of “MSNBC Live” told viewers on Thursday that President Trump’s support continues to be strong due to an abundance of “selfish” Second Amendment supporters. Co-anchors Stephanie Ruhle and Ali Velshi mulled over the White House’s solid support as the midterm elections near and concluded that self-centered Americans are to blame. “While we could find or do find the president’s constant lying or lawlessness or reprehensible behavior morally unacceptable, a lot of people vote pretty selfishly, and they say, ‘What’s going to give me more money in my pockets?’ ” Ms. Ruhle told billionaire...

    As the Democrats shift to the left on a number of issues from health care to immigration, they’ve already gone all in on one of the most contentious issues around -- gun control. A study by The Wall Street Journal found that of the 63 candidates on the House Democrats’ campaign arm’s list of seats to flip in November, 62 support expanded background checks for gun purchases. While Dems have long pushed for gun control, there was a time when some candidates ignored the issue, included gun rights as part of their platform or even allied with the National Rifle...

    Law enforcement and city officials are preparing for protesters and counter-protesters to descend on Washington, DC, this weekend. According to the shutitdowndc.org website, the Antifa side of the equation has purposes far beyond responding to the Unite the Right 2 demonstration set to take place on the Charlottesville, Va. rally anniversary on Sunday at Lafayette Park across from the White House. The National Park Service has issued a permit to Jason Kessler for his Unite the Right 2 rally from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the park and its website has a list of instructions, including warning people not to...

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says he’s discovered a way to kneecap the NRA by outlawing its gun-liability insurance program and is urging other states to follow his lead, saying they have a chance to exploit the gun-rights group’s admitted dire financial situation. Mr. Cuomo said the National Rifle Association let on in court papers last month how much it relies on the liability insurance program to bolster its bottom line, and could succumb to pressure. “I believe this insurance product is going to be illegal from a public policy point of view in most states,” Mr. Cuomo said on...

    Organizers of a union-backed initiative to limit dialysis provider profits in Ohio have submitted additional signatures that should get the measure on the Nov. 6 election ballot. . . . . The Ohio initiative is similar in intent to one that is set for the November ballot in California. Both proposals, backed by the SEIU, call for limiting profits of dialysis providers to no more than 115% of their costs for patient care. Additional profits would be returned, in the form of rebates, by the dialysis providers to commercial health plans who have patients being treated in dialysis clinics.

    A top health official told lawmakers Tuesday that the Trump administration was warned about instituting “any policy” resulting in family separations because of the effects such separations could have on the wellbeing of immigrant children. The official’s response came after Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) asked every federal immigration official at Tuesday’s hearing over family separations to answer a particular question: “Did anyone on this panel say, maybe [separating families] wasn’t such a good idea?” After a pause, Blumenthal directed his question first to Commander Jonathan White of the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, who said he and the Office...

    A pair of Twitter users whose posts exposing offensive tweets by baseball players went viral over the weekend say their aim was not malicious but to give fans a fuller picture of whom they’re cheering for, and to expose the sport’s “toxic” culture. In exclusive interviews with The Associated Press, both users said they weren’t looking for the years-old tweets from Milwaukee Brewers reliever Josh Hader or Atlanta Braves pitcher Sean Newcomb, but when the posts came across their timelines, they felt obligated to share them.

    If I were asked: “Can there be a more despicable cabal of liars, deceivers and Erebusic marplots than liberal white progressives?” My answer would be yes, but not on this earth – the only ones worse are burning in the prosaic netherworld of Lucifer’s eternal abiding place. Some may be thinking: “C’mon Mychal, that’s harsh even by your straightforwardness.” But, let me explain. The emotional, psychological and behavioral damage that progressives have done to blacks cannot be overstated. And just as the greatest trick Satan ever played was convincing people he doesn’t exist, these brutish Mohocks have convinced blacks they...

    Four days after seemingly defying the NFL and letting the world know about his team’s zero-tolerance policy regarding standing for the national anthem, Jones is now not talking about the issue because he has been told not to by the league. Jones informed several local television stations who had booked him for interviews on their Sunday night show from training camp in Oxnard, Calif., that questions about the national anthem and his team’s policy were not permitted because the NFL had told him to stop

    It was only a matter of time before the liberal media’s derangement got so out of control that they would start accusing the entire conservative movement of working for Russian interests, and it finally happened. During Sunday’s Meet the Press, NBC moderator Chuck Todd used the recent indictment of Russian national, Marina Butina to suggest that not only was the National Rifle Association infiltrated by Russians but “all levels of the conservative movement” were as well. Earlier this month, Maria Butina was arrest by the FBI on suspicion of being a Russian agent trying to lobby politicians to ease sanctions...

    The bigger the gun, the deadlier it is. Or, rather, the bullet. The Washington Post’s Christopher Ingraham on Friday highlighted a study published in the journal JAMA Network Open that found larger-caliber firearms are much likelier to kill a shooting victim than smaller-caliber ones. Caliber measures the internal diameter of the barrel of the gun, or how wide the bullet is. Analyzing data on hundreds of shootings in Boston between 2010 and 2014, researchers Anthony Braga of Northeastern University and Philip Cook of Duke University discovered that on a bullet-by-bullet basis, shootings with larger-caliber guns were deadlier than smaller-caliber...

    The City of Brotherly Love doesn’t have much love for federal immigration officials, but they apparently love them some illegal aliens. The city’s new mayor announced this week that a contract which allows Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials to access a database of municipal arrest information as it happens will not be renewed. He went on to complain that the agency was “misusing” the information to persecute people unjustly or something. (Associated Press) Philadelphia will stop giving U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement access to a real-time arrest database, saying the agency is misusing the information to conduct sweeps in which...

    Life can be really silly. You find a magnificent house on the beach. The price is really reasonable. It is large and airy. It has an outstanding view facing the morning sunrise over the ocean. It is remodeled with new appliances, and everything. It is convenient with stores, shops and establishments within an easy stroll, and high-end “five star” luxury hotels on both sides. There’s only one catch. Funny how the realtors failed to mention this… Background I have lived in China for some time now. When you decide to retire you can choose where to live. So, no longer...
