Trump Administration reverses ban on African ivory

SNIPPET:

Donald J. Trump, President of the United States, seems hellbent on reversing every piece of environmental legislature enacted by his arch-nemesis, his predecessor in the Oval Office, Barrack Obama — even if that means setting the world on fire.

Trump’s Administration has done so much to hurt the environment that keeping a tally can be a full-time job. National Geographic has a running list of all the vast changes Trump has made to U.S. science and environmental policy, if you’re interested.

16 Women and Donald Trump
Quote

This is serious. Sexual harassment is pervasive and happens at the very top of the institutions that run this country. We owe it to all women to hold men, especially those with immense power, accountable for their actions. Yes, this includes the president too.

In the video, 16 Women and Donald Trump, we put together the stories of women who have reported being sexually harassed or sexually assaulted by Donald Trump. Seeing these women’s stories, one after another, is incredibly powerful – it's time to listen and act accordingly. As a society, we need to do a better job of holding men liable for harassment and abusive behavior. And we have a right to hear these women's their stories even as the mainstream news outlets dismiss them and the White House deflects responsibility for them. It's time to disrupt the powers that silence the voices of women in all of our institutions. Please share this video to remind the nation that Hollywood isn't the only place abuse happens and that our current president isn’t immune to being held accountable.

Agelbert NOTE: Expect Trumpers like G.O. (and others here who cleverly do not admit to having voted Republican, EVEN THOUGH THEY DID!) to wail and moan about Franklen  and every other distraction they can come up with in order to provide COVER for the Criminal in Chief and his racist, mysogenist, profit over planet wrecking crew.

Trump supporters worship GREED.  They do not care about ANYTHING evil or illegal that Trump and his wrecking crew do, or have done, as long as Trump feeds their GREED.

Where have I heard this story before?? 
Let's hear the screams to resign please.  Hello, Hello, let's hear them now.

Must be going deaf.   ::)

Woman accuses Al Franken of kissing, groping her without consent


                           

A TV host and sports broadcaster on Thursday accused Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) of kissing and groping her without her consent in 2006.



The incident happened in December 2006, she said, when she and Franken, then a comedian, were on a USO Tour to "entertain our troops."



Keep defending your hero while he keeps robbing you blind, GO.

I guess it is just too hard for you to admit that you made a tragic and unprincipled mistake by voting for the most egregious example of mysogeny, sexual harrassment, bigotry, racism and profit over planet greed that has ever cursed this God Forsaken nation.

You have had fully one year to recognize your mistake. Crooks and ciars named by Trump to all key government positions during the last year has revealed the true nature of Trump and his wrecking crew to anyone with a shred of objectivity.

Only someone who refuses to alter his position, even when new objective, irrefutable evidence requires it, can remain loyal to someone like Trump. Not changing one's position when new information warrants it is the textbook definition of a bigot. The Holy Scriptures, however, do not label such a person as a bigot; the Bible has another label for them:

Proverbs 13 King James Version (KJV) 19 The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul: but it is abomination to fools to depart from evil. 20 He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.

Top Spots Of Climate Change Performance Index 2018 Remain Unoccupied With No Paris-Compatible Countries
November 16th, 2017 by Joshua S Hill

SNIPPET:

Unsurprisingly, the United States’ freefall to 56th position was due primarily to the Trump Administration’s backwards policies, causing the country’s ranking in the policy section to fall to “very low.” Thankfully, “A ‘high’ ratedgrowth rate of renewables over the course of the past years led to a slightly more positive rating in the renewables category compared to the other index categories.”

Agelbert NOTE: Learn WHY the NAME of Trump was continually paraded before the media (and other places ALL OVER THE INTERNET  ;)  ) before the election.

Also learn why, AFTER the election, that continues to be the case. Even when the news is negative, the old advertising saying about "all news is good news" (for product sales) applies to mindfork propaganda on behalf of the Trump demagogue too.

The clever Orwellian BASTARDS doing this have a method to their madness. It consists of repeatedly activating the most impressionable part of our cognitive hardware so we will be imprinted with an unconscious bias in favor of the politician making the greatest noise.

People that possess critical thinking skills do not fall for this. Unfortunately, most Americans lack those skills. That is why they get suckered election after election.

The ones that don't get suckered are carefully and methodically (SEE: mens rea disguised voter suppression ) being denied the vote by being forced to go through  bullshit red tape hoops.

Trump is not your father. Trump is a THIEF who is, not just robbing your home  , but helping to burn it down!

If you want a clear head, TUNE OUT TRUMP BULLSHIT!


A famous author has theorized conservatives and progressives into two camps, one based on a strict, authoritarian view of the world and the next based on a nurturing view, where do these camps lead us?

Behind Roy Moore's Smear Campaign Against His Survivors (w/Guest Greg Palast)


Roy Moore's story gets even more seedy when not only is he working on a smear campaign against his victims, but he hired the architect of a caging operation aimed at making sure that people of color, jewish people, even black soldiers in Iraq, to stop them from voting. These people are as evil as you could get.

Congress and Oil Industry Collude to Charge Anti-Pipeline Activists With Terrorism

The American Petroleum Institute has crafted a letter, signed by 84 members of Congress, suggesting that anti-pipeline activists should be charged with domestic terrorism. DeSmog Blog's Steve Horn says it's just one of many instances of a government-industry alliance against green activists

It REALLY WAS a good ride, not for you and me, but for TPTB. So expect them to do WHATEVER to prolong their RIDE, against all scientific evidence that EXPLOITATION WITHOUT REFLECTION OF FELLOW EARTHLINGS OF ALL SPECIES (not just humans) AND THE BIOSPHERE FOR PROFIT OVER PLANET is deleterious (i.e. SUICIDAL/abysmally STUPID) to the Homo SAP species.


The Fossil Fuelers DID THE Clean Energy  Inventions suppressing, Climate Trashing, human health depleting CRIME,   but since they have ALWAYS BEEN liars and conscience free crooks, they are trying to AVOID   DOING THE TIME or     PAYING THE FINE!     Don't let them get away with it!

SNIPPET from Video:

Quote
It's not a slogan to say another world is possible. It's not a slogan. It's part of our imagination. We believe that it's possible. If it is indeed possible, if we continue to resist, we have not been defeated, but I still feel that this might be the last president of the United States, and I say that on two levels.

The first level is, and I think Larry Wilkerson said it as well at lunch, I'm not sure if this country's façade of democracy is going to last. I think the façade might disappear sooner than the planet is destroyed, and so this might very well be the last president under the façade of democracy, and I think we should think about that a little bit, not pessimistically, not hopelessly, not in fear, but in order to sharpen our sense of what we need to do.

This might be the last president because they might annul formal democracy. This might also be the last president because this president is not a Republican. He's not even necessarily an imperialist. This president is an annihilationist. He is an annihilationist.

Not only is this president, in other words, the last president, this last president, not only is he committed to fully destroy the planet through this carbon civilization that we live in ... I quite agree. There is no such thing called climate change. There is capitalist planetary destruction. We are facing capitalist planetary destruction, not climate change.

Climate change somehow suggests that the climate has decided to change, that somehow the winds in the Atlantic Ocean have decided, "Let's spin a little faster. Let's provide more dangerous hurricanes." God might be involved in this. Dispensationalism. The dispensation might be producing some sort of shift.


This is not climate change. This is engineered by the carbon civilization required by capitalism. This is capitalistically-produced planetary destruction. He wants to speed up capitalistically-engineered planetary destruction by increasing the carbon civilization.

Vijay Prashad: 'The Only Way to Confront a War Economy is to Confront a Culture of War'

The culture of war is a celebration of death , which is what President Trump is promoting and which we must confront, argues Vijay Prashad at the Code Pink Summit


http://therealnews.com/t2/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=31&Itemid=74&jumival=20321


I will agree with you here. We are witnessing the last prez. of U.S.A. Inc.
We have yet to the witness the President of the Republic of the United States of America.
The swamp in D.C. most likely will turn into a cesspool with oceans rising for all intensive purposes.
Philly should be the new capital. However if Philly goes under, then I would think Denver will be the
new home of the Republic.


 

All this has a source. All this has a root cause. You and I do not agree on the root cause.  ;)  ;D

But for the sake of non-argument, do you agree that the following is a BIG reason (somewhere down the chain af causation from the root cause) that we cannot get anything good and decent (i.e. No CFS* in the US gooberment) accomplished in this God Forsaken, Polluter OWNED country?  :P

Agelbert NOTE: The polluters AGAIN find a way to KEEP POLLUTING while they CONTINUE to shaft mostly the poor and people of color with greenwashing baloney cap and trade.

100% Electric Bus Fleet For Shenzhen (Population 11.9 Million) By End Of 2017

November 12th, 2017 by Nicolas Zart

Snippet:

You are definitely living under a rock if you haven’t heard that many cities in China are suffering from record-breaking pollution levels. If you’re a hard core regular of CleanTechnica, you also know that electric buses have been selling like hotcakes in China. The EV-loving city Shenzhen is taking it one step further. In Shenzhen, electric buses will make up all public bus transportation by the end of this year, primarily BYD electric buses.
