  • A Guide to Seattle’s New Left

    Seattle Weekly ^ | April 26, 2017
    A spectre is haunting Seattle—the spectre of Kshama Sawant. Consider the April 12 Seattle Times editorial. In it, the editorial board called on Mayor Ed Murray to forgo a re-election bid. The reason: The child sexual-abuse allegations recently leveled against him make him vulnerable. “If he runs under that cloud,” the paper reasoned, “it increases the possibility of a Mayor Kshama Sawant, or some other extreme left-wing ideologue, steering this booming city wildly off course.” This was an odd argument to make, especially since Councilmember Sawant is almost certainly not running for mayor this year. In the swell of resistance...

    A group of executives who want to fight global warming has published a new report calling for countries to spend up to $600 billion a year over the next two decades to boost green energy deployment and energy efficiency equipment. The Energy Transitions Commission’s (ETC) report claims “additional investments of around $300-$600 billion per annum do not pose a major macroeconomic challenge,” which they say will help the world meet the goals laid out in the Paris agreement. ETC is made up of energy executives, activist leaders and investment bankers, including former Vice President Al Gore, who would no doubt...

    SEATTLE — The King County Prosecutor’s Office charged a 29-year-old woman in connection with the January 20 shooting on the University of Washington campus. The victim, a 34-year-old man, was shot once in the abdomen outside Kane Hall during a protest. The defendant, Elizabeth Hokoana, was charged with Assault in the First Degree with a firearm enhancement on Monday. Her husband, 29-year-old Marc Hokoana, was charged with Assault in the Third Degree for his involvement in the incident. “The evidence will show that these defendants took a gun into a volatile protest in Red Square, and that Marc Hokoana engaged...

    Expect more craziness this weekend. Earth Day is Saturday. This year's theme: Government must "do more" about climate change because "consequences of inaction are too high to risk." They make it sound so simple: 1) Man causes global warming. 2) Warming is obviously harmful. 3) Government can stop it. Each claim is dubious or wrong. This weekend at a movie, I was surprised to be assaulted again by former Vice President Al Gore. In a preview, a puffy-looking Gore suddenly appeared, attacking Donald Trump and mocking critics of his previous movie, "An Inconvenient Truth," the deceitful documentary that spreads fear...

    September 13, 2016 Islamic Movement in U.S. Preparing for Battle For UTT followers who are accustomed to brief articles, this is a longer article because it needs to be. This is an important topic and needs a little more attention. Please read this carefully because the implications are significant. JG As UTT has continually reported, there exists in the United States a significant jihadi movement led primarily by the Muslim Brotherhood whose organizations include the most prominent and influential Islamic groups in America. The Islamic Movement in the U.S. continues their daily work of preparing for the coming battle...

    Not far from Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort, one expert after another warned Monday about the dangers that rising sea levels pose to Florida's coast. Not that surprising, except this was a Senate committee field hearing challenging the position shared by President Donald Trump and many Republicans in Congress that climate change isn't real. The site of the hearing -- just four miles from Trump's weekend getaway in Palm Beach -- was clearly intended to send a signal: Much of Florida's coastline could one day be underwater, including some of the President's own prized properties. "Today we sit at ground zero of...

    New York would be the first state to make tuition at public colleges and universities free for middle-class students under a state budget set for passage in Albany. The plan crafted by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo would apply to any New York student whose family has an annual income of $125,000 or less. To qualify the student would have to meet certain class load and grade point average restrictions, and room and board would not be covered. Cuomo said Sunday that the tuition plan, which his office has estimated to cost $163 million, is a national first.

    Turbulence can be an uncomfortable and unpleasant experience. And climate change is about to make it an increasingly common one, according to a new study. Using supercomputer simulations of the atmosphere, researchers at the University of Reading, in England, looked at the future of severe turbulence. "Our new study paints the most detailed picture yet of how aircraft turbulence will respond to climate change," Paul Williams, who undertook the research, said in a statement. "For most passengers, light turbulence is nothing more than an annoying inconvenience that reduces their comfort levels, but for nervous fliers even light turbulence can be...

    Continuing to burn fossil fuels at the current rate could bring atmospheric carbon dioxide to its highest concentration in 50 million years, jumping from about 400 parts per million now to more than 900 parts per million by the end of this century, a study warns. Some research suggests that, if humans burned through all fossil fuels on Earth, atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations could hit 5,000 parts per million by the year 2400. The new study speaks to the power of human influence over the climate. It suggests that after millions of years of relative stability in the absence of...

    A bill that would prohibit discriminating against people based on their beliefs about climate change is up for a hearing in the Maine state capital. Republican Rep. Larry Lockman says his bill would prohibit the state from favoring or penalizing a person based on how they feel about climate change. It's up for a hearing on Thursday before the Legislature's Committee on Judiciary. Lockman says climate change doubters get treated like "heretics'' and they deserve to be protected. He also says his bill would protect people who feel strongly that climate change is real. Democrats and environmental groups in Maine...

    The Guardian ^ | April 5, 2017 | by Jeremy Hance
    Climate change is rapidly becoming a crisis that defies hyperbole. For all the sound and fury of climate change denialists, self-deluding politicians and a very bewildered global public, the science behind climate change is rock solid while the impacts – observed on every ecosystem on the planet – are occurring faster in many parts of the world than even the most gloomy scientists predicted. Given all this, it’s logical to assume life on Earth – the millions of species that cohabitate our little ball of rock in space – would be impacted. But it still feels unnerving to discover that...

    On March 20, 2017, George Washington University student Aidan Johnston went undercover and attended the 2017 People’s Climate March planning meeting. The March is scheduled for Saturday, April 29 in Washington D.C. “We wanted to see if this meeting was really about climate change and protecting the environment, or if it was actually about bringing down capitalism and advocating socialism,” said Johnston. “I had no idea that it was going to turn into advocating for violence.” Reverend Graylan Halger of Plymouth UCC Church in Washington D.C. took to the microphone, called out “greedy” billionaires and the fallacies of capitalism,...

    Since President Donald Trump's election, monthly lectures on social justice at the 600-seat Gothic chapel of New York's Union Theological Seminary have been filled to capacity with crowds three times what they usually draw. In January, the 181-year-old Upper Manhattan graduate school, whose architecture evokes London's Westminster Abbey, turned away about 1,000 people from a lecture on mass incarceration. In the nine years that Reverend Serene Jones has served as its president, she has never seen such crowds. "The election of Trump has been a clarion call to progressives in the Protestant and Catholic churches in America to move out...

    There’s nothing like a little violence to focus the mind. I am the Middlebury College professor who ended up with whiplash and a concussion for having the audacity to engage with the ideas of Charles Murray, a scholar at the American Enterprise Institute. Though he is someone with whom I disagree, I welcomed the opportunity to moderate a talk with him on campus on March 2 because several of my students asked me to do so. They know I am a Democrat, but the college courses I teach are nonpartisan. As I wrote on Facebook immediately after the incident, this...

    Trump administration officials guaranteed Sunday that the president will hit the road soon to rally support for the health care bill put forth by House Republicans, saying the White House is “fully committed” to the legislation. “The president, the vice president, all of us at the White House are fully committed to this bill, and we’re going to do whatever it takes to get it passed,” Gary Cohn, director of the White House’s National Economic Council, said during an interview on “Fox News Sunday.”

    In his first address to Congress, President Donald Trump rattled off a litany of supposed threats to the United States – immigrants, Muslims and regulations among them. But on climate change – the greatest real existential threat facing humanity – Trump didn't say a single word. In short, denying the reality of climate change is now the official policy of the United States government. If there was ever any doubt, Trump's Environmental Protection Agency head Scott Pruitt made it explicit when he told reporters recently that he "would not agree" that carbon emissions are "a primary contributor to the global...

    f asked for the most pressing issue facing Canadians, the answers from the political right vary considerably. Some of the primary issues given include topics such as terrorism, immigration and national security, changes to our voting system, or even the left-wing bias within the media. Chief among the myriad of responses given to this question is the issue of free speech, especially with the recent motion, M-103. Lower down the list, if it even makes the list at all, is the issue of education reform. This needs to change. Any issue deemed important by the political right has its origins...

The Epoch Times believes it’s worth examining the impact of communism—on the arts and culture today and through history—in order to understand these developments better.People naturally look for a path to follow. During times ancient and modern, human beings have looked for a way forward to become healthier, happier, and better in all...
