Every Action Has an Equal and Opposite Reaction- It’s Time to Stand Up and Be the Reaction

Every Action Has an Equal and Opposite Reaction- It’s Time to Stand Up and Be the Reaction

It is time we accepted that the President of the United States is a demonstrated pathological narcissist and liar with no regard for consequence. According to Eric Boehlert, Trump is devoid of empathy and lacks a soul or a heart.  He is filled with a deep emptiness driven by sociopathic paranoia, grandiosity and cruelty.  This man embodies the definition of a sociopath.

Transylvania Indivisible Issues an Urgent Call To Action: Tell Your Senators to Oppose Cuts to Early Voting

In recent years, through illegally gerrymandered voting maps and unconstitutional voting restrictions, politicians in Raleigh have attempted to hold on to their political power by undermining North Carolina voters’ access to the ballot. Unfortunately, they’re at it again.

The Trump administration’s separation of families at the border, explained.

The Trump administration’s separation of families at the border, explained.

When it first became clear that the Trump administration was engaging in wide-scale family separation, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly waved off questions about the policy by saying that children would be sent to “foster care or whatever.” The vagueness and inaccuracy were telling.

The administration knows it is separating families. It does not appear to believe it’s its job to reunite them.

Antarctica’s ice is shrinking at an unprecedented rate that could imperil coastal regions worldwide

Antarctica’s ice is shrinking at an unprecedented rate that could imperil coastal regions worldwide

The Antarctic ice sheet lost nearly 3 trillion metric tons of ice from 1992 to 2017, and its rate of loss over that time tripled in West Antarctica, according to an international collaboration involving about 80 scientists.

The finding, published Wednesday in the journal Nature, reveals that the continent’s ice is shrinking at an unprecedented rate and could mean an even higher sea level rise by 2100. That would have serious implications for the environment and for people living in coastal regions around the world.

‘Prison-like’ migrant youth shelter is understaffed, unequipped for Trump’s ‘zero tolerance’ policy, insider says

‘Prison-like’ migrant youth shelter is understaffed, unequipped for Trump’s ‘zero tolerance’ policy, insider says

Colleagues at a government-contracted shelter in Arizona had a specific request for Antar Davidson when three Brazilian migrant children arrived: “Tell them they can’t hug.”

Davidson, 32, is of Brazilian descent and speaks Portuguese. He said the siblings — ages 16, 10 and 6 — were distraught after being separated from their parents at the border. The children were “huddled together, tears streaming down their faces,” he said.

Officials had told them their parents were “lost,” which they interpreted to mean dead. Davidson said he told the children he didn’t know where their parents were, but that they had to be strong.

“The 16-year-old, he looks at me and says, ‘How?’” Davidson said. As he watched the youth cry, he thought, “This is not healthy.”

No Time for Ethical Ambivalence or Absence of Courage

No Time for Ethical Ambivalence or Absence of Courage

Courage requires more than words, it requires action. And it requires taking action with the full knowledge that there would probably be consequences, both personal and public. True courage, according to Kennedy (“Profiles in Courage”), meant a willingness to live with those consequences — even if they meant electoral defeat.

Our state, and indeed, the nation, now face some of the most compelling moral and civic issues since the Civil War, and this is no time for Cody Henson’s ethical ambivalence and lack of political courage. Nor for ours.

Reporters thought this video was North Korea propaganda. It came from the White House.

Reporters thought this video was North Korea propaganda. It came from the White House.

Among the many tactics President Donald Trump rolled out in his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore was apparently a four-minute video, styled like a movie trailer, that casts Trump and Kim as the heroes of a story about “two men, two leaders, one destiny.”
It was part of an overall pitch that reaching a deal between the US and North Korea would help North Korea advance technologically and economically — including, Trump suggested, some real estate development.
“They have great beaches,” Trump said. “You see that whenever they are exploding the cannons in the ocean,” he said. “I said look at that view. That would make a great condo.

    The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival will necessarily be a multi-year undertaking. The Summer of 2017 through the Spring of 2018 will be used as the public launching of the Campaign. By engaging in highly publicized civil disobedience and direct action over a 6-week period in at least 25 states and the District of Columbia during the Spring of 2018, the Campaign will force a serious national examination of the enmeshed evils of systemic racism, poverty, militarism and environmental devastation during a key election year while strengthening and connecting informed and committed grassroots leadership in every state, increasing their power to continue this fight long after June 2018.
