“I think the American people are coming to the conclusion that this man thinks he’s above the law, and they don’t like it. They know that he’s covering up something, and they want to find out what it is,” Clyburn said. “They want us to do what is necessary to protect the integrity of this democracy, not to salve whatever may be our itch at this particular point.”
We believe this is the most important election year in a long time.
We believe it is imperative for everyone interested in governance by the people and FOR the PEOPLE to vote and get others to do the same.
We believe division among Dems equals defeat, so we will #VOTEBLUE - no matter who.
We will get on board and campaign for local, state and national Dems. And DONATE money to help move the Dem platforms foward.
We will stick together for the betterment of the nation.
And, ultimately, we will not suffer as we did in Nov of 2016. We will WIN - local, regional, state and national - because we know the Republicans will be rallying to keep us down for another four years but we will outvote them. Time to RISE!
We expect aberrantly high temps of 100 degees this weekend - months ahead of the norm.
Architect of Paris Agreement says we need to ‘go exponential’ to beat climate crisis

Governments that fail to provide responses to the global climate crisis are doing so "at their own peril," former United Nations climate chief Christiana Figueres said during a visit to Toronto.
Figueres, a central figure behind the 2015 Paris Agreement, made the comments as she called for governments and tech companies to "go exponential" in their efforts to tackle the global climate emergency.
Her remarks come weeks after several reports have portrayed devastating impacts of the climate crisis, including the near extinction of one million species worldwide,100-year floods in Ontario and Quebec and raging forest fires in western Canada. In one of those reports, federal government scientists said that global greenhouse gas emissions would need to be reduced to "near zero" in the current century in order to avoid some of the harshest impacts of climate change.

Greta Thunberg and leading youth strikers for climate action from across the world have called for all adults to join a global general strike on 20 September.
They are asking citizens to walk out of work just before a crucial UN summit at which nations are being urged to declare much stronger ambitions to tackle the climate emergency.
The call was issued as young people prepared for what organisers have claimed will be one of the biggest student strikes so far on Friday, with protests expected in 1,594 cities and towns in 118 countries, according to the Fridays for the Future website.

We will probably see more and more stories like this. But the key is to be strong Dems - get out the vote - encourage others to register - drive people to the polls. And #VoteBlue no matter who - refuse to be divided this election term - local, state or national.
