    “Trump Claims Obama Was Disloyal To America As Investigators Close In.”
    “Trump claimed in Green Bay that former President Obama had been disloyal to America, as congressional investigators are digging into (Trump’s) relationship with Russia.”

    45* is going off the rails. (I put * after the number because I believe the entire 2016 election was rigged and that Hillary actually won. He is an illegitimate president. The entire election, consequences and all actions of #45* need to be thrown out including the 2 scotus picks and all other judges put into place by Trump.

    “You Did Not Act In Time.”
    Global youth climate action leader 16 year old Greta Thunberg tried not to break down while speaking brilliantly to MPs in the House of Commons.
    Here’s one segment of it:
    “Around the year 2030, 10 years 252 days and 10 hours away from now, we will be in a position where we set off an irreversible chain reaction beyond human control, that will most likely lead to the end of our civilisation as we know it. That is unless in that time, permanent and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society have taken place, including a reduction of CO2 emissions by at least 50%.
    And please note that these calculations are depending on inventions that have not yet been invented at scale, inventions that are supposed to clear the atmosphere of astronomical amounts of carbon dioxide. Furthermore, these calculations do not include unforeseen tipping points and feedback loops like the extremely powerful methane gas escaping from rapidly thawing arctic permafrost.
    Nor do these scientific calculations include already locked-in warming hidden by toxic air pollution. Nor the aspect of equity – or climate justice – clearly stated throughout the Paris agreement, which is absolutely necessary to make it work on a global scale.
    We must also bear in mind that these are just calculations. Estimations. That means that these “points of no return” may occur a bit sooner or later than 2030. No one can know for sure. We can, however, be certain that they will occur approximately in these timeframes, because these calculations are not opinions or wild guesses. These projections are backed up by scientific facts, concluded by all nations through the IPCC. Nearly every single major national scientific body around the world unreservedly supports the work and findings of the IPCC.
    Did you hear what I just said? Is my English OK? Is the microphone on? Because I’m beginning to wonder.”
    -Pls don’t miss video, full speech:

      One has to be brave to face the realities of climate change extinction and this young girl is fearlessly speaking up.
      Of course the Big Oil right is attacking Greta Thunberg, claiming that activists are teaching her lies.
      Trump is the roadblock for climate action. Putin and Big Oil are set to destroy our planet. And Trump is on board.

    Climate deniers and Facebook:
    “In its latest disastrous move to fight the online epidemic of fake news, Facebook’s fact-checking effort announced last week that it was teaming up with CheckYourFact.com — an arm of the conservative, anti-science media site The Daily Caller. The Daily Caller, which has published misinformation about climate science for years, was co-founded by the science-denying Fox News host Tucker Carlson and is backed by major conservative donors, including Charles and David Koch, the billionaire fossil fuel barons who are the single biggest funders of climate science misinformation.”
    https://thinkprogress.org/facebook-fact-checker-koch-climate-deniers-f5288be4c3f9/
    “It is beyond outrageous that in 2019 — when the science of human-caused climate change has been overwhelmingly verified and every other nation but ours is desperately working to avert catastrophic impacts — the world’s largest social media site is still partnering with climate science deniers.”

      Thanks. I am feeling pretty broken right now. With the continued mess in our federal government and now the TN mess, I am at my wits end. I am depressed, no energy, concerned, angry, frustrated. worried, angry, upset, angry……….get the picture? The TN legislature and governor are literally acting like a banana republic. It is awful. Our postcard group got together this afternoon. We are all like I described.

      The US: Go back and forth with the Dems in Congress. Sometimes think they are on the right track, then think they have no backbone and need to do fight and do what the Rs would do if reversed. I heard someone say today that two former Republicans have told a number of people that the Republicans KNOW the Dems will back down. Repeat: They KNOW the Dems will back down and not fight like they do. Will they ever learn?? Gawd, I’m so frustrated and angry and worried.

      Heading to bed and hoping I can sleep.

    am I the only one sensing a tangible change in the news reports since VP Biden entered in the race?

    to me, it seems as though the pace/frequency of reporting what specific candidates are doing on the campaign trail has hit a pause button …. maybe I am just imagining stuff

      Actually watched the MSNBC “Headliners: Joe Biden” special tonight. Wasn’t sure I would because Chris Matthews was “the voice.” But it gave a very favorable reminder to people who have forgotten the good parts of Joe Biden’s life. Most significant other than the “guy with empathy” stuff was all of his foreign policy experience in the Senate, which I’d pretty much forgotten at this point! It was well done.

    15,600 year-old human footprint found in Chile:
    So far the earliest sign of human presence in the Americas.
    “The footprint was found at the Pilauco excavation in the city of Osorno (820 kilometers, or 500 miles, south of Santiago), where scientists have been digging since 2007…the footprint appears to be that of a barefoot man weighing about 70 kilograms (155 pounds) and of the species Hominipes modernus, a relative of Homo sapiens.” (https://phys.org/news/2019-04-footprint-chile-oldest-americas-scientists.html)

    Secretive Fossil Fuel Lobby Group Manipulated UN Climate Programs:
    “A fossil-fuel backed industry group was able to influence the process behind the United Nations Climate assessments for decades.
    using lobbyists and industry-funded scientists to manipulate international negotiations.”
    Documents found “include hundreds of briefings, meeting minutes, notes, and correspondence from the Global Climate Coalition (GCC). They were released Thursday by the Climate Investigations Center in collaboration with DeSmog and Climate Liability News.”
    Documents show “how the GCC influenced international negotiations, manipulated the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) process, and undertook a disinformation campaign designed to cast doubt on mainstream climate science.”
    (https://truthout.org/articles/secretive-fossil-fuel-lobby-group-manipulated-un-climate-programs/)
    = GCC doubling down on 4 decades of Exxon global warming cover-up.
