  • AOC and Kamala Harris Introduce 'Climate Equity Act' That Links Climate Change to Racial Justice

    Western Journal ^ | 8/10/20 | Michael Austin
    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Kamala Harris introduced a new bill in Congress on Thursday meant to combat climate change. How will this new legislation prevent the planet from heating up? By creating equal economic outcomes for all races. In the same vein as the highly criticized “Green New Deal,” the “Climate Equity Act” forwards the philosophy of environmental and climate justice, an ideology that links the issue of the “climate crisis” to the liberal “social justice” agenda. “For a year, @AOC and I have worked with communities on landmark legislation to ensure that as we fight the climate crisis,...

    Englewood Fire Chief, Gerald Marion says he's, 'fed up' with seemingly endless stories of blacks being killed by whites with little or no repercussions.Gerald Marion has spent his career fighting fires, not racial injustice. The lifelong Englewood resident rose through the ranks and became the city’s second black fire chief, earning a reputation as a calm, steadfast advocate for his department who stayed out of the political fray. But Marion reached a breaking point on Saturday, when a Florida jury acquitted George Zimmerman in the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teenager, during a con­fron­ta­tion in a gated...

    Senate Republicans who shared laughs with President Obama over dinner at the Jefferson Hotel in March are grumbling there has since been little follow-through from him on deficit talks. They say the White House has not set up a process for negotiating controversial reforms to Social Security, healthcare programs and the tax code, and that absence of basic organization has stalled negotiations. "We've made no progress. None," said a GOP senator who had dinner with President Obama earlier this year. "There's no process in place. Right now we just have 20 Republican senators meeting and talking to themselves." . ....

    The Telegraph, London, UK ^ | 2009-04-22 | Tom Leonard
    The eldest child of John McCain, the Republican presidential candidate during last year's US election, has launched a foul-mouthed and extended defence of herself on the "microblogging" service Twitter after she was accused of having accomplished nothing in her life. Meghan McCain, 24, used her Twitter account, which limits users to messages of no more than 140 characters, to send out a long string of "tweets" in which she listed her achievements. The curriculum vitae apparently includes teaching children at church, delivering flowers to hospital patients, and writing a best-selling children's book about her father's life.

The 22-year-old actress took to her MySpace blog Tuesday to post her thoughts on Republican John McCain's running mate, Alaska Gov.

"I've been watching the news all morning, like everyone else — and (I) keep hearing about the issues related to `teen pregnancy.' ...

    John McCain is a liar and flip-flopper and panderer and bully and whiner. And it seems to be workingWhen people start running to be president, we learn new things about them. The amount and intensity of exposure – the fact that suddenly we are subjected to their thinking on every conceivable issue and non-issue – makes this inevitable. As a result of this our opinions change. We either like them more or less than at the beginning, but rarely in just the same measure. I've been surprised at how much less I like John McCain than I did a year...

    LAS CRUCES, New Mexico – Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore has called for better use of the “space resource” to battle Earth’s climate crisis, enlisting entrepreneurial muscle to help solve global issues that threaten the planet’s habitability. Gore said he has long been a fan of faster, cheaper, better approaches that allow the private sector to exploit the space resource “in a responsible and creative, and cost-efficient way.” As an example, Gore spotlighted the competitive and dynamic forces unleashed by the entrepreneurial growth of the Internet. “We ought to learn that lesson and apply it to space,” Gore said....

    Sean Penn is at it again, shooting off his mouth at a news conference for the Toronto International Film Festival and calling President Bush "Beelzebub." Penn used the biblical term for a prince of devils while promoting the remake of the political drama "All the King's Men" on Sunday. "One could make the argument that George Bush is a good politician," Penn said at one point. Then he added: "I think the issue is how you define politician. Once upon a time, politics was the organization of things to benefit the people." Penn said the definition has changed – much...

    The Hill ^ | November 16, 2005 | Rep. Jane Harman (D-Calif.)
    Yesterday’s overwhelming Senate vote to require detailed reporting to Congress on Iraq and make clear that the United States will not stay longer “than required” puts Iraq back on Congress’s agenda. There is now a strong bipartisan consensus that we need an exit strategy. But yet to emerge is the content of that strategy. We have two overriding objectives in Iraq: to facilitate a viable power-sharing agreement among Sunnis, Shiites and Kurds and to turn over responsibility for security to the Iraqis on a steady basis. Any exit strategy must address both issues in order to leave post-Saddam Iraq in...

    Leading a parade of celebrity witnesses who claimed they were stiffed by a speakers bureau, Andy Rooney began his testimony Monday by questioning the wording of the oath to tell the truth. The CBS newsman later got a lecture from the judge for trying to interrogate a lawyer while on the witness stand. "No, no, no, Mr. Rooney," said federal Judge Colleen McMahon, her head in her hands. "The first rule is the witness never gets to ask any questions ... even if he's a journalist." Rooney was the first witness in the fraud trial of Alan Walker, 67, who...

    TWO Great White sharks ripped a schoolboy surfer in two off a packed beach yesterday. Nick Peterson, 18, was being towed on his surfboard behind his grandmother's dinghy when a shark began attacking the boat. His three friends in the boat, all aged 16, tried to beat the shark away with paddles but Nick fell in. Seconds later the 16ft shark dragged him around the boat by an arm, then under it, before tearing him in half. A second shark then joined in the frenzy.

    MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -- A third political party forming in West Virginia is only in its infancy but offers "the truly conservative person" a voice and a choice, its organizers said Monday. The Constitution Party advocates a smaller, less intrusive federal government that operates within the strict framework of the U.S. Constitution and "its foundation in Biblical law." "I guess we're what you would call the ultraconservatives," said Secretary Brenda Donnellan, a Lewis County resident. The Constitution Party, which plans to petition for ballot access in the coming year, supports the death penalty and a patient's right to sue doctors...
