    The Green Party’s Joe O’Brien has accused some fellow TDs of using racism to get elected to the Dáil. Mr. O’Brien said that “some people have used racism to get into this house” and that racism in all forms “needs to be called out”. Speaking during a Dáil debate on racism, he said that “only a couple of weeks ago, a member of this house used it in a parliamentary question to get attention”. He added: “When push comes to shove, there are people in this house who have opposed accommodation for Travelers when it comes to their area.” Labour’s...
  • OP-ED: York leaders pushing for re-opening at expense of small business owners and workers

    The York Dispatch ^ | 10 May A.D. 2020 | Bill Swartz
    It’s deeply disappointing and downright dangerous that some members of York County political and business leadership, including some paid by the very taxpayers that they should be protecting, are essentially encouraging York County business owners to defy the governor’s orders and open. This irresponsible defiance by some of our leaders puts business owners, their clients, their customers and the entire York community at risk of further spread of COVID-19, a deadly virus that has already killed 13 of our neighbors and sickened more than 700 York countians in recent months. This is a time when leaders must have the courage...

    Former WWE star Jesse Ventura has admitted he is considering jumping in the ring with a wildcard presidential run — only days after bashing rumors about it. “OK, I’ve decided I’m going to test the waters. IF I were going to run for president, the GREEN party would be my first choice,” the 68-year-old wrestler-turned-Minnesota governor tweeted Monday. “To be clear: I haven’t filed anything. I authorized a letter of interest that was sent on my behalf to the Greens and I’m testing the waters for Green Party nomination,” he said. “I’m an independent. I’m not a Democrat or a...

    We have learned the hard way that the scientists who produce mathematical models predicting disaster are not to be granted the presumption of infallibility. Nor are their demands that we impoverish ourselves in order to avert a disaster a matter of "settled science." The coronavirus doom that the Cassandras of prestigious scientific organs predicted is nowhere to be found, and it turns out that models are based on assumptions and can be spectacularly wrong. Americans have sacrificed trillions of dollars and turned our lives upside-down based on predictions of millions of deaths if we didn't follow radically change our way...
  • 'Just Stop’ – Ilhan Omar Scolds Progressives Who ‘Plan to Sit Election Out or Vote for Trump’

    Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) on Wednesday scolded progressives who may “plan to sit this election out or vote for Trump.” She issued her warning after Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) announced the suspension of his presidential bid, begging them to remain active and “fight like hell” to oust President Trump and “end the rise of fascism in this country.” Sanders formally ended his year-long campaign on Wednesday, conceding that the path to the nomination simply is not feasible. He tried to encourage supporters, reminding them of their greater movement and contending that they are “winning the ideological battle.” Omar, one of...

    The Green Party, a political party that prioritizes environmental issues, posted a statement Wednesday attempting to court supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who dropped out of the Democratic presidential race earlier in the day. “The Green Party will continue to build and expand on issues that Sanders raised. Join us,” the statement read. The Green Party shares many major policy stances as the Vermont independent; however, the third-party has failed to gain wide recognition, with its presidential candidates often left out of presidential debates and rarely making a dent in elections. “These transformations will benefit all who challenge the...

    A little-known Washington nonprofit has filed a lawsuit against Fox News in King County Superior Court, claiming the news station, its parent companies and owners violated the state’s Consumer Protection Act and acted in bad faith by disseminating false information about the novel coronavirus through its television news broadcasts and minimized the danger posed by the virus as COVID-19 began to explode into a pandemic. The suit, filed on behalf of the Washington League for Increased Transparency and Ethics (WASHLITE), alleges Fox News engaged in unfair or deceptive acts by representing the coronavirus as a hoax in broadcasts that aired...

    Brussels is concerned by the constraints on freedom of expression and demonstration rights under Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. This is despite the German carmaker arguing the country is a candidate for EU membership. German Green Party politician Reinhard Bütikofer, revealed the decision “caused dismay” within the European Parliament. He said: “In view of the increasingly deteriorating situation of the rule of law, media freedom and democracy under President Erdogan, the decision of the VW Group head is causing dismay.” The location decision is also said be a breach of EU competition rules. While Turkey has committed to complying with...

    A 25-year-old New Zealand lawmaker on Tuesday offered a blunt response to a colleague who apparently heckled her during a speech she gave addressing the urgency of climate change on the floor of Parliament: “OK, boomer.” Chlöe Swarbrick, a member of the Green Party, expressed the statement as she emphasized how the consequences of climate change will fall on people of her generation. As she expressed support for legislation to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, Swarbrick noted how she would be around the age of the average lawmaker in Parliament by that time. "We are in a climate...

    Former Green Party candidate Jill Stein pushed back against Hillary Clinton after the failed 2016 presidential candidate called her a "Russian asset" this week. In a new interview, Clinton appeared to float a conspiracy theory that the Russians are “grooming” Hawaii congresswoman and Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard to be a third-party candidate in 2020. “I'm not making any predictions, but I think they've got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate,” Clinton said, an apparent reference to Gabbard. “She's the favorite of the Russians. They have a bunch of sites and bots...

    Hillary Clinton said that Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is being groomed by Moscow to run as a third-party spoiler candidate in 2020 to help President Trump win reelection. The former secretary of state pushed the theory on the Campaign HQ podcast hosted by David Plouffe, President Barack Obama’s campaign manager in 2008. Plouffe and Clinton discussed hurdles the Democratic nominee would face and compared the 2020 race to Clinton’s loss to Trump in 2016. Plouffe asked Clinton about the part third-party candidates, such as Jill Stein of the Green Party, played in 2016, allowing Trump to secure key states. "They are...

    ‘Reasonable’ physical chastisement is currently allowed to discipline children, which means smacks to the body will generally avoid prosecution, but blows to the head or with an implement are strictly prohibited. But the Scottish Government has now backed moves to give children the same protection from assault as adults. A vote later today is expected to overwhelmingly pass a bill that will completely outlaw smacking, meaning parents and carers could potentially face prosecution for any use of physical punishment upon children. The bill was initially proposed by the Scottish Green Party, and has won cross-party support, with all but the...

    Whatever you do, don't call Austrian Green Party politician Eva Glawischnig-Piesczek a "corrupt oaf" or "lousy traitor of the people" on Facebook. If you do, the European Union (E.U.) has ruled that Facebook can be forced to take your comments down, regardless of where you are in the world. In all likelihood, you have no idea who Glawischnig-Piesczek even is, but you should definitely worry about today's ruling and how it impacts your ability to express your opinions about politicians online. I blogged about this case back in June when the E.U. was first considering it. Glawischnig-Piesczek is a retired...

    Canada’s Green Party admitted it doctored a photo of its leader to show her holding a reusable cup instead of a paper one. Elizabeth May, the longtime head of the party, said in a statement on Tuesday that her staff altered the photo, which had been taken last year during the Sidney Street Market in Victoria, British Columbia. In the original photo, May held a paper cup without a straw. But in the doctored photo, she holds a reusable cup with a Green Party of Canada logo on it, as well as a metal straw. “I was completely shocked to...

    Deutsche Welle ^ | 09.24.2019 | Christoph Hasselbach
    The German government is generally critical of US President Donald Trump’s politics, especially when it comes to questions of war and peace in the Middle East. Last year, Trump pulled the US out of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal that Germany, France and the UK, among others, had struggled to secure and wanted to maintain at all costs. The situation appeared to escalate dangerously after the drone attack on oil facilities in Saudi Arabia on September 14. Iran-aligned Houthi rebels fighting a Saudi-led military intervention in Yemen have claimed responsibility. The US immediately blamed Iran, even as the Saudi government...

    Actor and producer Isaiah Washington, who famously joined the anti-Democratic Party #WalkAway movement earlier this year, said Monday that closeted conservatives in Hollywood are “cowards” for not voicing their beliefs out of fear of being blacklisted. “I have a message for the Hollywood Actors DM’ing me and revealing that you’re Conservatives,” wrote Mr. Washington, best known for his roles in the CW’s “The 100” and ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy.” “Don’t DM me again, because you all are lame and I don’t respond well to hypocrites or cowards,” he wrote. “You’re no different than the bystander that is waiting on the blood...

    A man sets himself on fire Wednesday on the Ellipse in downtown Washington, across from the White House, the Secret Service said. A spokesman for the Washington Fire Department tells CNBC, “I can confirm that we’ve transported one patient with burns from the Ellipse and we’re now on the scene assisting law enforcement,” referring to Park Police and U.S. Secret Service officers. Alina Berzins says she was visiting the National Mall with two of her cousins from Bolivia when “we saw this man” on the Ellipse and “he starts running, and then we saw him covered in flames.”

    FULL TITLE: Marine Le Pen's National Rally party wins France elections for European Parliament, Greens surge in Germany: polls The European Union's traditional center splintered in the hardest-fought European Parliament elections in decades, with the far right and pro-environment Greens gaining ground on Sunday after four days of a polarized vote. Turnout was at a two-decade high over the balloting across the 28 European Union countries. The elections were seen as a test of the influence of the nationalist, populist and hard-right movements that have swept the continent in recent years and impelled Britain to quit the EU altogether. Both...
