  1. Now, this is infuriating! An 11 year old black boy refused to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance in school (which is perfectly fine and legal). But when he did, his teacher told him to leave America and to go back to Africa. The teacher then had him arrested for being disobedient. Boy, 11, arrested after refusing to recite 'racist' Pledge of Allegiance WWW.YAHOO.COM "I want the charges dropped and I want the school to be held accountable," Dhakira Talbot said of her son's arrest at the Florida school. The teacher was a substitute teacher and claimed to police that the child made a threat. Now the school says "We are looking into this matter, but this individual will no longer be allowed to substitute at any of our schools." Despite this, the kid was suspended by the school for three days. Mother Upset After Son Kicked Out of Class Over Pledge of Allegiance WWW.BAYNEWS9.COM The mother and student spoke to Spectrum Bay News 9 The US is truly the land of the free! /s
  2. We all know that Donald Trump is a big liar, but Trump is actually more than a liar, he is a pathological liar. In fact, Trump lied and/or made "false and misleading claims" more than 8000 times during his first two years as President. And he continues to lie unabated. During his first year as president, Trump averaged nearly 5.9 false or misleading claims a day. And during his second year, Trump made nearly 16.5 false or misleading statements (read: lies) every single day. President Trump made 8,158 false or misleading claims in his first two years WWW.WASHINGTONPOST.COM That's insane!
  3. Experts are warning that the endangered Florida panther will lose an important hunting and roaming habitat that is crucial for the continued survival of the species if a new major development project in rural Collier county in south-west Florida is approved. “This area was never intended for this amount of development,” said Amber Crooks, environmental policy manager of the Conservancy of Southwest Florida. “These parts of Collier county contain a lot of important habitat for the Florida panther and also so many other rare species and has important public lands on each corner. The best available science tells us the panther needs all its available habitat to survive and ultimately recover,” she said. “The top concern is habitat loss, but there’s also the impact of traffic. Every year dozens of panthers are struck and killed by vehicles. What’s going to happen when you add 300,000 people to an area that is already very deadly [for them]?” The project is expected to be approved by the Trump administration as early as April this year. Read more about this story on the Guardian: Endangered Florida panther threatened by development project, experts say | US news | The Guardian WWW.THEGUARDIAN.COM Almost half of proposed area of construction falls within hunting and roaming zone that is essential to animal’s survival Another day, another endangered species at risk from a development project. It's all just so depressing.
  4. The construction of a new U.S. military air base in Henoko Bay in Okinawa, Japan, would involve filling in and paving over hundreds of acres of rich coral and seagrass habitat which is crucial to the survival of the last surviving Okinawa dugong, one of Earth’s most endangered marine mammals. Conservation groups and residents of Okinawa are now fighting back and they have filed an appeal to the court ruling that allows the construction of the military airbase in the Japanese island’s coastal waters. “The Okinawa dugong, sea turtles, coral reefs, humans and the ocean environment need the U.S. justice system to guard our genuine national security by rejecting this ecologically horrendous project,” said Todd Steiner, founder and executive director of Turtle Island Restoration Network said in a press release. Legal Battle Begins in Appeal Challenging US Military's Threat to Rare Okinawa Dugongs | Turtle Island Restoration Network SEATURTLES.ORG SAN FRANCISCO— American conservation groups and residents of Okinawa have filed the opening brief in an appeal of a court ruling allowing construction of a US Marine Corps air base in the Japanese island's coastal...

  5. In an interview with CBS News and ahead of his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, US President Donald Trump said that he thinks "the European Union is a foe". Read the full story here: "I think the European Union is a foe," Trump says ahead of Putin meeting in Helsinki This certainly doesn't bode well for future US-EU relations. Maybe it's true what Germany's Chancellor, Angela Merkel, said last year, that Europe can no longer rely on America?
  6. Last year, and for the first time, the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), which publishes annual reports on the development of democracy, demoted the US from a full democracy to a flawed democracy. CNBC reported on this story: And apparently, Americans can't blame it all on Trump. The US has been on the brink of becoming a flawed democracy for several years, and it would have slipped below 8.0 no matter the election result in 2016. Instead, the EIU says dwindling trust in the US political system, the government and its elected representatives are the cause for the US becoming a flawed democracy. What are your thoughts on this story? Can the US become a full democracy again, or is it going to slip further down in democracy rankings?
  7. Swedish prime minister, Stefan Löfven, criticizes US President Donald Trump's tariff proposal while standing right next to Trump at a press conference. Sweden's prime minister takes a shot at Trump's tariffs while standing right next to Trump, Business Insider reports. Watch the video: ThinkProgress has more on this: Swedish prime minister criticizes Trump’s tariff proposal right in front of him Also this: Trump responded by saying tariffs would be imposed in a "loving, loving way." Say what!? I'm just happy our prime minister didn't make a complete fool of himself.
  8. The suspect in the horrific Florida school shooting could have been a member of a "white nationalist" group, it leader said before denying it. Florida shooting: Leader of white nationalist group confirms suspect was member of his organisation before appearing to deny it "The suspect in a Florida school shooting may have been a member of a white supremacist group, with the organisation's leader casting doubt on the association after affirming it."
  9. Chelsea Manning files to run for U.S. Senate in Maryland Chelsea E. Manning, the transgender former Army private who was convicted of passing sensitive government documents to Wikileaks, has filed to run for the U.S. Senate in Maryland, according to federal election filings. Read more here: https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/md-politics/chelsea-manning-files-to-run-for-us-senate-in-maryland/2018/01/13/6439f0d0-f88c-11e7-beb6-c8d48830c54d_story.htm
  10. Uh oh... Angela Merkel has just said in a speech that Germany or Europe can no longer rely on America under Donald Trump, or Britain following Brexit. Instead Merkel said that "we Europeans must take our destiny into our own hands" and "fight for our own future". The Independent reports: So, basically, France think Donald Trump is a dictator, and the Germans think he's unreliable, while the British think he can't be trusted with any kind of intel. But at least the Saudis think he's useful. Good job America!

    March for climate, jobs, and justice!

    Join the Peoples Climate Movement this April 29th in Washington, D.C. and across the country to stand up for our communities and climate. Everything we have struggled to move forward in the United States is in peril. Our loved ones feel under siege, and those in power in Washington are advancing a dark and dangerous vision of America that we know is untrue. To change everything, we need everyone. On the 100th Day of the Trump Administration, we will be in the streets of Washington D.C. to show the world and our leaders that we will resist attacks on our people, our communities and our planet. We will come together from across the United States to strengthen our movement. We will demonstrate our power and resistance at the gates of the White House. We will bring our solutions to the climate crisis and the problems that affect our communities to our leaders in Congress to demand action. We invite you to join the Peoples Climate Movement on Saturday, April 29th as we march to: Advance solutions to the climate crisis [that are] rooted in racial, social and economic justice and committed to protecting front-line communities and workers. Protect our right to clean air, water, land, healthy communities and a world at peace. Immediately stop attacks on immigrants, communities of color, indigenous and tribal people and lands and workers. Ensure public funds and investments create good paying jobs that provide a family-sustaining wage and benefits and preserve workers’ rights, including the right to unionize. Fund investments in our communities, people and environment to transition to a new clean and renewable energy economy that works for all. Protect our basic rights to a free press, protest and free speech. March with us on April 29th as we come together to resist and march for our families, our communities and our planet.
