MINNEAPOLIS — Fresh off of becoming the first Somali-American elected to Congress, Ilhan Omar said Wednesday that she´s still enjoying being known for her firsts. In 2016 the one-time refugee became the first Somali-American elected to a state legislature in the U.S. when she won a seat in the Minnesota House from Minneapolis, which has a large Somali community. Her victory Tuesday in Minnesota´s 5th District also makes her one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress, along with Democrat Rashida Tlaib, who won a Detroit-area seat. "It´s wonderful. It is a great opportunity. But really

I am sure that in gratitude the mooselims will contribute all their money to Catholic and Lutheran church’s for their needs and upkeep as they were so helpful in aiding the invasion of our country. After 75 yrs the Catholic Church can kiss my arse and never see another dime from me. Communists in sheep’s clothing along with their communist and atheist pope

She couldn´t get Sharia though as a state legislator, so now she´ll try it on the entire country. Considering the fruitcakes who will now be in charge of the House, I expect it´ll be the first bill passed and sent to the Senate, where it will die an immediate death.

A fight broke out in a closed-door meeting of House Democrats over climate change as a powerful veteran lawmaker fought with freshman star Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other members-elect over the creation of a special panel for the issue. New Jersey Rep. Frank Pallone, incoming chairman of the powerful Energy and Commerce Committee — backed by a number of other committee members — slammed the creation of the new climate panel, according to multiple sources in the room. Pallone argued that his committee and other existing panels within the House could take on the issue aggressively.

Trump to visit California
to assess wildfires´ impact

WASHINGTON - President Trump plans to visit California on Saturday “to meet with individuals impacted by the wildfires,” a spokeswoman said on Thursday. The White House has not yet given details on where Trump will go, what he will do and whom he plans to visit. During visits to other natural disaster sites, Trump has focused on meeting with first responders and public officials, and has had less direct contact with victims than his predecessors. This will be just Trump’s second visit to the nation’s most populous state since his election. His first California visit, which he made in March

Ron DeSantis is Florida’s next governor.
Margin barely budges after machine recount
Miami Herald [FL], by Emily L. Mahoney    Original Article

TALLAHASSEE - Nine days after Election Day, and one machine recount later, it is all but official: Ron DeSantis is Florida’s next governor. The results of the statewide machine recount which rolled by the Thursday 3 p.m. deadline, solidified what most already knew, as DeSantis has already made himself busy with transitioning to power and creating a new government. In the governor’s race, it was an anticlimactic finish to the dramatic machine recount — plagued with technical issues and an avalanche of lawsuits — with almost not change in the margin between DeSantis and his Democratic opponent, Andrew Gillum

The anti-Pelosi insurgents are coalescing around a new strategy in their quest to deny Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) the Speaker´s gavel: recruit a woman to run against her. The shift in approach comes as the rebellious group has been faced with a barrage of criticism for trying to take down Pelosi, who became the first female Speaker of the House in 2007, on the heels of an election cycle being dubbed the "Year of the Woman." Rep. Kathleen Rice (D-N.Y.), one Pelosi detractor, hammered the argument that the California Democrat´s promotion is the only way to secure female leadership at

As wildfires ravage large swaths of California for a second year, one of the state’s biggest utilities has declared that it faces billions of dollars in potential liability — far more than its insurance would cover. The potential losses could leave the company’s customers on the hook to pay the bill, exposing businesses and consumers to higher costs. The utility, Pacific Gas and Electric Company, could even face bankruptcy, putting pressure on the state for a bailout. With its financial liabilities mounting, the company’s shares dropped by more than 20 percent on Wednesday. More than half of its market value

WASHINGTON — As a steadfast Rep. Nancy Pelosi all but dared potential rivals for the gavel to come forward, a group of restive House Democrats vowed Wednesday to produce enough votes to block her from becoming the House´s new speaker. For two days now, disgruntled Democrats have claimed they have 17 names on a letter opposing Pelosi´s leadership, promising to air the document soon. They say those signing on are pledging to vote against the Californian when the full chamber elects the next speaker on Jan. 3. Rep. Kathleen Rice, D-N.Y., confirmed the letter Tuesday, and an aide to

   

 



 
´Cut lamb and beef´ to fight climate change
BBC News [UK], by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 11/14/2018 8:48:52     Post Reply
The number of sheep and cattle in the UK should be reduced by between a fifth and a half to help combat climate change, a report says. The shift is needed, the government’s advisory Committee on Climate Change (CCC) maintains, because beef and lamb produce most greenhouse gases. The report foresees an increase in the number of pigs and chickens because these produce less methane. Environmentalists say the recommendations are too timid. The farmers´ union NFU welcomed the report. The CCC says a 20-50% reduction in beef and lamb pasture could release 3-7m hectares of grassland from the

Palm Beach County’s race to recount votes is heating up — literally. The county’s decade-old ballot-counting machines overheated and gave incorrect totals, forcing the county to restart its recount of about 175,000 early votes, supervisor of Elections Susan Bucher said Tuesday night. The department has flown in mechanics to repair the machines. “We’re disappointed by the mechanical problems that are going to cause a further delay in the recount,” Bucher told reporters. “It became evident through the vigorous pace of counting that the machines used for the recount were starting to get stressed.” The malfunctions resulted in the loss of

Rep.-elect Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) said in an interview that aired Tuesday on "Rising" that white candidates are rarely asked how they win their elections in minority-majority districts, while minority candidates are often asked the opposite. “I just wanted to follow up on that. I represent a district that is nearly 70 percent white, and Congressman Keith Ellison used to represent this district," Omar told Hill.TV on Monday. "The question that is never asked of a white candidate when they represent a minority-majority district is that how did you win your election. So, I just want to say

Sen. Jeff Flake announced Wednesday that he will not vote to advance any new judicial nominees through the Judiciary Committee, nor will he vote to confirm picks on the Senate floor, until he gets his way on unrelated legislation to prevent the firing of special counsel Robert Mueller. Mr. Flake made the announcement on the Senate floor minutes after his bid to pass the bill failed. His threat could block the committee from approving any more judges this year, since the GOP only holds a one-seat majority on the panel. It’s less catastrophic to approving judges on the Senate floor,

Tuesday evening Hillary Clinton told a crowd that Stacey Abrams, the apparent loser in Georgia’s recent gubernatorial election, would have won the race if not for Republican chicanery. She claimed—without evidence, to use a term much beloved of the media lately—that the “people on the other side” were guilty of undermining the rights of Georgia voters: Stacey is really in the arena and she is fighting for the right to vote and have your vote counted … If she had a fair election, she already would have won.

CHICAGO — To read the worshipful press coverage you’d never know that, for Democrats, the unthinkable has happened: Michelle Obama has revealed herself as just another guru for sale. On Tuesday night, the former first lady kicked off her 10-city North American book tour, which more closely resembled a cult-of-personality-propaganda-rally, at the United Center in Chicago. (Dates have been added in London, where scalped tickets are going for over $90,000 each, and Paris.) A sliver of the 20,000 seats available for the Chicago event were priced at $29.50, and those sold out within five minutes of going on sale in September.
