    Hawaii Gov. David Ige (D) called on Monday for global emission reduction goals that aspire beyond "net-zero," as island communities continue to bear the disproportionate effects of climate change. The Biden administration has pushed for a goal of net-zero greenhouse gas emissions within the next few decades, under which the U.S. would seek to eliminate or offset climate pollution entirely. But Hawaii has gone further, with Ige telling other governors gathered at the U.N. Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow that his state is "committed to a net-negative goal by 2045, or as soon as practicable, because we know that...

Barack Obama tells Virginians we don’t have time for ‘trumped up culture wars’ and ‘fake outrage’ Posted at 7:45 pm on October 23, 2021 by Brett T. Everyone has noticed by now that Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe is bringing in a lot of big names who don’t live in Virginia to campaign for him: Kamala Harris, Stacey Abrams, Barack Obama, and Joe Biden, to name a few. Obama campaigned for McAuliffe over the weekend and told the “crowd” that we don’t have time for “trumped-up culture...
  • Clyburn: Biden Spending Plan not ‘Zero Cost’ — ‘No Way to Pay’ for a $6 Trillion or Even $3.5 Trillion Program

    House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-SC) on Friday sounded a different tune than President Joe Biden on the cost of his so-called Build Back Better agenda. Biden and his administration have maintained that the $3.5 trillion spending package would come with “zero cost” to the American people, but Clyburn told MSNBC’s “Craig Melvin Reports” that “there’s no way to pay” for a $6 trillion program or even a $3.5 trillion program. The South Carolina congressman said Democrats are “committed” to paying for what they deem necessary and emphasized they are “close to finding that sweet spot.”

    "Fox News Sunday" anchor Chris Wallace joined "The Brian Kilmeade Show" Thursday, weighing in on President Biden and his team's continuous claims the president's Build Back Better agenda "costs zero dollars." The administration has repeated the claim despite loud condemnations from the Washington Post's fact-checker, budget analysts and at least one columnist who supports the infrastructure bills associated with the agenda.

    McDonald’s is planning to cut its greenhouse gas emissions so that the company is net-zero emissions by the year 2050. The restaurant shared on Monday that it is partnering with the nonprofit organization Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) to help revamp its climate change focus and meet the new goal. “We believe we have both a privilege and a responsibility to help lead on issues that matter most in communities – and there is no issue more urgent globally and of impact locally than protecting our planet for generations to come,” McDonald’s President and CEO Chris Kempczinski said in a...

    Australia is set to end its "covid zero" policy after Prime Minister Scott Morrison determined that the country’s approach is not "sustainable" in the face of the more infectious COVID-19 delta variant. Australia has maintained a strict policy of restrictions and lockdowns to stamp out any outbreak, but the government over the weekend laid out a new plan that marks a sharp change in policy. The government will drop most restrictions once 80% of adults are vaccinated, which the government believes could happen by the end of the year, The Economist reported. Any further action would occur only after hospitals...

    The state of Hawaii will be re-implementing limits on social gatherings and restrictions on businesses in order to stop the spread of coronavirus cases, Democratic state Gov. David Ige announced Wednesday.“Social gatherings will be limited to no more than 10 indoors, 25 outdoors.

    1157 comments Suzanne Adams 9 hours ago I am extremely concerned, especially about the blood clotting. It's been obvious to me from the beginning that these vaccines would do this, especially in people who are low in zinc as zinc regulates blood clotting and platelet function. I have a doctor friend who I believe is suffering from this condition right now, having severe headaches and high blood pressure ever since taking the Pfizer shots. This new JAMA article should lift everybody's eyebrows and demand a stop to mandating these so-called vaccines (be sure and study the graphs): Myocarditis and Pericarditis...

    On Wednesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The Last Word,” Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) said that “if you ask billionaires to pay something, that’s not a tax increase, more than zero, it’s not a tax increase.” While discussing the negotiations over the $3.5 trillion budget package, Stabenow said, “We really believe that it’s time that the American people know that somebody’s got their back, and that the tax code should work for working people, not just the rich, not just the millionaires and billionaires. We believe that if you ask billionaires to pay something, that’s not a tax increase, more than zero,...

    New York City recorded zero reports of coronavirus deaths on Monday, signaling that the U.S. is moving closer to ending the pandemic. The Big Apple also recorded an .83 percent positivity rate, which is the lowest level since virus testing began. “You know the phrase, what have you done for me lately?” New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) stated. “I’ll tell you what vaccinations have done for us. We have the lowest positivity rate we’ve ever had since this crisis began because people got vaccinated. It couldn’t be clearer. Let’s keep going.”

    Cemeteries pay zero property taxes, something the mainstream media will NEVER tell you. That means the funeral home businesses that own that type of property make a fortune off of funerals, but pay no property taxes. I am an old man and just learned that yesterday and I read extensively. Interesting that the media doesn't see fit to print all that is news.

    Palin responded to comments in Obama's A Promised Land during a Friday evening interview with Newsmax. Both she and host Greg Kelly ridiculed Obama as "aloof and snobby as he's ever been" after he tied her to what he described as xenophobic and paranoid thinking that now dominates the Republican Party... ...Palin said Obama's depiction of her in his new book overlooks that she and the Tea Party movement at the time promoted diversity within the GOP, particularly the "Mama Grizzlies" embrace of conservative women.

    By now, most Americans have received the federal stimulus checks directed by the CARES Act in March to help consumers weather the economic downturn caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Three months later, the downturn has been declared an official recession and the official unemployment rate has soared into double digits, heightening calls for a second round of stimulus checks. There's good news and bad news on the prospects for additional government assistance. The proposed $3 trillion Health and Economic Recovery Omnibus Emergency Solutions, or HEROES, Act would authorize another round of stimulus payments for most U.S. households. While the bill...

At last check, West Texas Intermediate crude fell 74% to $4.72 a barrel. Contacts for June delivery declined 23%.

    Despite flashing elite arm strength and fluidity in the pocket during his public workout last week, Colin Kaepernick has reportedly received "zero" interest from NFL teams. “Zero. Absolutely zero. The workout last week did absolutely nothing to enhance the chances that Colin Kaepernick is going to wind up with another team," ESPN's Adam Schefter said Sunday on SportsCenter. "There hasn’t been a team that has requested a workout. There hasn’t been a team that has requested a visit. There hasn’t been a team that has expressed interest in signing him. So, despite the fact that one week ago we saw...

    Republican Texas Rep. John Ratcliffe said during Tuesday’s impeachment hearing that the use of the accusation of “bribery” has only recently been leveled against President Donald Trump. Ratcliffe said it was House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who started to refer to the president’s alleged bribery because it was more comprehensible to Americans than “quid pro quo.”(snip)Ratcliffe noted that the word bribery does appear once in the testimony — but not in relation to Trump. “In fact, in these 3,500 pages of sworn testimony in just these ten transcripts released thus far, the word bribery appears in these 3,500 pages exactly one...
