You know we’re in a dire situation when the president retreats to his private golf resort on day one of the “emergency”
A national emergency on climate change, healthcare, gun violence, and poverty coming right up
“This is going to backfire on them in a major way—and the tragedy is that every one of them knows this. The core of conservatism has always been a distrust of a powerful national government and the necessity of imposing restraints on it. That’s out the window now, like nearly every other tenet that held the movement together.”
The president’s latest decision will backfire on conservatives.
If I was President I’d declare climate change a national emergency and seize / nationalize all oil and gas infrastructure. The former profits would be spent to develop a carbon free energy grid and then the entire fossil extraction industry would be dismantled and shut down after a decade. Problem solved 👏🏻
Sen. Cory Booker, a New Jersey Democrat who rose to prominence as Newark’s charismatic and ambitious mayor, announced Friday that he is running for president.
“Ignoring the past means repeating the same mistakes in the future. If Democrats elect a centrist in 2020, America will get eight years of Trump. Remember during the media frenzy of the next four years all the reasons Hillary Clinton lost to Trump. Before attacking Trump, Democrats attacked Bernie Sanders. Now we have President Trump, when we could have had President Sanders.

Announcing on MLK Day is nothing but a ploy. Her campaign slogan of “For the People” collided directly with her record of corporatism and mass incarnation. The similarities between Dr King and Kamala Harris end at the color of their skin.
Dr King fought against and was murdered by the unjust system that Kamala has helped maintain and perpetuate her entire career.
The California senator announced her bid on Martin Luther King Jr. Day with the campaign theme “For the People.”
“While Congress has the impeachment power to prevent future harm to our government, prosecutors have the power to seek punishment for those who commit crimes. But it is not Mueller’s role to determine whether the president has committed impeachable offenses. That is the responsibility of the U.S. Congress.
Those who say we must wait for Special Counsel Mueller to complete his criminal investigation before Congress can start any impeachment proceedings ignore this crucial distinction. There is no requirement whatsoever that a president be charged with or be convicted of a crime before Congress can impeach him. They also ignore the fact that many of the impeachable offenses committed by this president are beyond the scope of the special counsel’s investigation.”
