Potential GOP rival warns Sessions against run for old Senate seat over Trump ire

  Potential GOP rival warns Sessions against run for old Senate seat over Trump ire Rep. Bradley Byrne, who said he would not back out if the former attorney general joined the race, noted that the president would be “very vocal against him.”In recent weeks, Sessions has actively weighed a comeback bid for the seat he held for two decades, speaking with allies and calling major donors and fundraisers in the state to gauge his level of support ahead of the Nov. 8 filing deadline.

Robert Redford : ‘We Have a President Who Degrades Everything He Touches’. The solution, he suggests, isn’t impeachment or Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing investigation but rather “There is so much damage to heal from, so much division to repair, so many good works to return to.

Trump took Senators Lindsey Graham and Ted Cruz, who’d actually been bent against him, and bent them into fawning sycophants. Trump and his bent spoons are ready to wreck any institution that gets in the way of his re-election or unfettered exercise (We also need to hear from Robert Mueller.)

Earlier this week, Donald Trump notified the United Nations of his intention to pull America out of the most significant climate effort in history, the now-famous Paris Accord. It's a decision that has shocked millions with its short-sighted foolishness. That he chose to do this on the first day he could legally do so under the UN's rules for withdrawal simply reveals his immoral dedication to isolating us from the world community by willfully ignoring the biggest, most urgent threat facing human civilization.

The administration’s lengthy slate of rollbacks will slow progress on reducing air pollution and greenhouse gases that warm the planet, health experts say.

Now begins a possible one-year extrication countdown that could become final on November 4, 2020 -- just one day after Americans decide whether to grant Trump another four years in office, or to hand the reins of government over to someone else (I'm rooting for the latter).

A newly-sworn-in future president, one who cares about America and its future, could immediately request re-entry into the agreement as a first order of business, and after 30 days our country would be allowed to rejoin as a full, participating member. By that point, other world leaders would have every right to be concerned about the depth of our commitments. We shouldn't even risk it -- we shouldn't even be facing this horrible reality.

Farmer: I won't vote for Trump again without an end to high tariffs, trade war with China

  Farmer: I won't vote for Trump again without an end to high tariffs, trade war with China President Trump makes a lot of big promises to farmers like me who voted for him in 2016. But the burden of his trade war with China is even bigger.President Donald Trump made a big promise last month to American farmers who’ve been battered by his trade war. After announcing what he is calling “phase one” negotiations with China, the president sat behind his desk in the Oval Office and told farmers that they’re now going to need to “buy more land and get bigger tractors.

I was honored to be in Paris in 2015, as representatives from more than 170 countries forged the terms of an agreement that would become the cornerstone of a new modern and international approach to fighting climate change. On a stage at Paris City Hall, I sat with mayors from all over the world and heard them describe local actions they were taking to slash their cities' carbon footprints -- they weren't waiting, because mayors are closest to the people and they are experiencing the effects of climate change real-time: wildfires, floods and rising seas. They can't afford to wait.

On a different stage, I sat with indigenous leadership from highly vulnerable Pacific Island cultures and listened to their stories of devastation. It was a reminder that those who have contributed the least to climate change are often tragically the most affected by it.

I only hope now that the rest of the world understands that the American people, including many of our leaders at the state and local levels, are still engaged in the fight against climate change, and still committed to the principles laid out together in Paris just four years ago.

Trump mocks Bloomberg as 'little Michael,' predicts he won't do well in 2020 race

Robert Redford : The GOP 'Tax Scam' Is a 'Dirty Deal' for America. President Donald Trump is trying to break that promise and sacrifice spectacular lands for the sake of oil and gas profits. Remind them of our American spirit, the will to fight and to stand up for causes and ideas bigger than ourselves.

I think I’ve just received a message, inside my helmet I’m roughly three miles out from the city, up until now my helmet has continued to play Maybe it’s Rico trying to lure me in for round two? If so I’ll know what to expect, this time him and his men won’t get off so lightly.

In Utah, where I live for much of the year, Salt Lake City leaders led an effort to become 100% powered by renewable energy. They join literally hundreds of mayors and governors who have made transitioning to clean energy over the next 20 years their priority.

Not surprisingly, many of these leaders made transitioning to clean energy a centerpiece of their campaigns -- and were rewarded by voters with victory. I only wish it were enough.

We can't allow one unqualified authoritarian's depraved indifference to the climate crisis define Americans' commitments or the character of our nation. The clock is ticking so loudly, the rest of the world can hear it. With enough outrage, enough action, and enough voices rising together, we just might have a chance to compel a reversal of this nonsense.

I'm not sure if it will work, but I know without question that we will all suffer if we don't try.
