Supreme Court Rejects White House Move To Block Teens’ Climate Change Lawsuit

The Supreme Court has refused a Trump administration application to halt an intriguing climate change lawsuit filed by a group of young people against the U.S. government.
The suit, filed in 2015 by 21 plaintiffs now ages 11 to 22, argues that the failure of government leaders to battle climate change violates their constitutional right to life, liberty, property and to a “stable climate system” that will sustain human life.
The Trump administration moved for an emergency ruling to block a hearing of the case that had been scheduled to begin Monday in an Oregon federal court.
The lawsuit calls on the federal government to devise a plan to phase out fossil fuels and carbon emissions, and to stabilize the Earth’s climate.
The Trump administration argued that the suit was “misguided” and a “radical invasion of the separation of powers” because environmental decisions should be left up to political policy.

The young kids get it that their needs to change and now!!!

For once Trump is caught telling the truth. LOL

https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/414706-progressive-group-targets-cruz-with-audio-of-trump-calling-him-a-liar

The Progressive Change Campaign Committee announced Saturday that it is targeting Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R) with a new ad featuring audio of President Trump repeatedly calling him a liar.

“I must tell you something about Ted Cruz. I have never, never met someone who lies more than Ted Cruz. One of the great liars of all time. That’s why we call him ‘Lyin’ Ted.’ Lyin’ Ted! He holds the Bible high, and then he lies,” Trump can be heard saying in the ad.

“Ted Cruz, he’s taken so much money from so many different people, and he’s totally controlled. He’s a nasty guy, nobody likes him, nobody in Congress likes him. Cruz is not a truthful person. Cruz is the most dishonest guy I think I’ve ever met in politics,” it continues.

Coach Popovich is not shy to voice his opinions.

https://thehill.com/blogs/in-the-know/in-the-know/414714-gregg-popovich-dons-beto-hat-at-team-practice

San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich donned a hat in support of Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D) during his team’s practice on Friday.

In footage of the practice captured by a local ABC affiliate, Popovich could be seen sporting the “Beto” hat at his team’s practice facility on Friday evening, which also marked the final day of early voting in Texas.

This is not the first time the NBA coach has waded into politics, however.

Popovich, who has long been a critic of President Trump, made the rounds on social media earlier this year after he ripped Trump for his absence at the nationwide “March for Our Lives” demonstrations in March.

“If you just sit for a moment and imagine those bullets going through those bodies, and what those bodies might have looked like afterwards, how can the president of the country talk about all the things he’s going to do, and then go have lunch with the [National Rifle Association] and change it?” Popovich said at the time.

He also captured headlines after he took aim at the president last year, calling the United States a “global embarrassment” under Trump’s leadership following his attacks on black athletes who have boycotted standing for the national anthem.

He went a step further and endorsed him. His comments in doing so are important.

https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/414735-gregg-popovich-endorses-beto-orourke-in-texas-senate-race

San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich endorsed Democrat Rep. Beto O’Rourke in Texas’ Senate race on Saturday.

Popovich called the Texas Democrat a “special guy” on Saturday and said he makes him feel “like what I thought an American is supposed to be” while speaking to the media before his team’s matchup against the New Orleans Pelicans, My San Antonio reported.

“You get so tired of all the lies and the divisiveness, and the fearmongering and the race-baiting. It just diminishes all of us,” Popovich said. “It makes all of us feel strange, and when I think of Beto, or I listen to what he says, I feel like what I thought an American is supposed to be. He’s classy. He’s intelligent. He’s civil.”

“Leaders are courageous,” Popovich said, according to the local outlet. “Leaders conduct themselves based on their standards, their principles. They have the courage of their convictions. They don’t genuflect. They don’t kiss up for their own personal gain. [O’Rourke] is out for the people. He wants everything to be fair. He wants justice. He wants our democratic institutions to be respected, so that we are proud of being Americans. You can’t be proud of the culture wars that have been begun, and the whole world looks at us for leadership, and it’s not there.”

“That’s why people like Beto are so important, because he embodies that. He is there for us. He’s not there for his own personal gain and position. When people are so desperate as is his opponent, that scares me,” Popovich added. “To do what Mr. Cruz has done to try to get elected is very scary. That’s about self. That’s not about the rest of us. And Beto is the exact opposite of that, and that’s why I think he is great.”

That’s a major endorsement. Pro sports is a yuge deal in TX, needless to say.

Up here in WI both sides show up at Packers, Brewers and bucks games to press the flesh, A majority of the players keep silent about their political views for the most part. The weird thing is that the ones that do come out and say something that happen to R’s also very supportive of their players union and even the team steward. Find that weird. But then again a lot of them are in the 1% for their wages they make

orlbucfan

wi60, the Packers are owned by the fans who founded the team. My Tampa Bay Bucs tried to do the same thing when the franchise was awarded back in ’74-75. They raised the $40M price. The fucked up FRightwing NFL ownership screwed them. They scared up a white collar crook from So. FL named Hugh Culverhouse and gave him the franchise. I kid you not. Our team has been cursed eversince with shitty inbred ownership. We are lucky we won a SB back in 2002-3.

wi60

Correct Orl, The NFL owners don’t want another fan owned team in the NFL for that matter any other pro sport. Just think the Packer’s can never be held hostage by an owner and never move. If they would go under any leftover “proceeds go to local VFW post. They cant be sold at all. The so called Shareholders can only sell their “shares” back to the Packers or pass it on to a family member. No dividends are ever paid. Its really no different than buying an expensive souvenir which will last longer than the proverbial authentic jersey or helmet. The Packers do hold a shareholder event and some special sales for shareholders but that’s about it.

Trump keeps going on his racist tour. The Dems have responses.

https://thehill.com/blogs/in-the-know/in-the-know/414726-jimmy-buffett-takes-musical-shots-at-trump-during-concert

Legendary singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett made few digs at President Trump
and other Republicans while hosting a concert in support of Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson and Democratic gubernatorial nominee Andrew Gillum on Saturday.

During his performance, Buffett made tweaks to two of his most popular songs to criticize Trump and Republican Gov. Rick Scott (Fla.), according to The Associated Press.

While performing “Come Monday”, the singer reportedly took aim at Trump by changing the wording in his song to “Come Tuesday, things will change. Come Tuesday, we’re making a change. It’s been two insane years and it’s time to really switch gears…”

Buffet then shifted his focus to Scott and environmental issues in the state while performing “Margaritaville,” reportedly singing: Some people say there’s a red tide to blame, but I know, that it’s all Rick Scott’s fault.”

Former professional baseball player Alex Rodriguez recorded a robocall for Democratic congressional candidate Donna Shalala.

Shalala is running in a tight congressional race in Florida’s 27th Congressional District against Republican Maria Elvira Salazar.

“Hi, this is Alex Rodriguez asking you to support my friend Donna Shalala for Congress. Donna Shalala is a great Miamian who was president of the University of Miami for 14 years and led us to new heights. In addition to educating fellow Miamians, Donna also helped to create over 5,000 jobs with an annual economic impact of six billion for South Florida,” Rodriguez said in the call.

Comedian Will Ferrell reprised his role as “Talladega Nights” character Ricky Bobby for a video with Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.) encouraging people to vote.

In a video Jones shared to Twitter on Friday, Ferrell joined the Alabama Democrat telling voters to head to the polls on Election Day Tuesday.

“Hey, guys, it’s Doug Jones. I’m here with my friend, Ricky Bobby, right here telling everybody get out to vote November 6th,” Jones says alongside Ferrell in the clip.

“Isn’t that right, Ricky,” Jones asks the comedian.

“That’s right, just remember I piss excellence and I crap freedom. If you don’t vote first, you’re last,” Ferrell said to Jones laughing.

Right on cue Trump keeps displaying his Nationalist bona fides.

https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/414740-trump-calls-gillumnot-equipped-to-be-florida-governor

PENSACOLA, Fla. — President Trump alleged Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, the Democrat bidding to become the first black governor of Florida, is “not equipped” for the job at a boisterous rally Saturday evening.

“It’s not for him,” Trump said, without elaborating further. Earlier in his speech, he had dismissed Gillum as a “radical socialist.”

The remarks about Gillum ignited instant social media criticism. They are sure to intensify the debate about Trump’s rhetoric as he campaigns hard for Republicans in the final days before Tuesday’s midterm elections.

Accusations of racial animus have new urgency — particularly since, campaigning in the adjacent state of Georgia on Thursday, the president had called Stacey Abrams “not qualified” to become governor of the Peach State.

Abrams, a Democrat, would be the first black female governor in the nation’s history, if elected.

“We humans now have the knowledge and technology to move beyond the violence, fear, and daily struggle for survival that besets the lives of so many. We have the capacity to secure a world of peace, beauty, diversity, creativity, material sufficiency, and spiritual abundance for all people, and have all that in balance with Earth’s ecosystems. Achieving such a goal requires that we make this vision our common goal and transform our cultural narratives, institutions, and infrastructure accordingly—a steep but imperative challenge.

Success requires leadership from all levels of society, including from people everywhere working to grow community-facilitating cultural values, institutions, and infrastructure in the places where they live. Together we need to achieve four conditions critical to the transition.”

A lot of people share that vision, to bad the power hungry capitalistic fascists will have to be dragged into this vision unless they kill the planet first with their on going quest for money and power. Also the article above reminds me of the exchange on STNG;

Counselor Deanna Troi: Poverty was eliminated on Earth, a long time ago. And a lot of other things disappeared with it – hopelessness, despair, cruelty…
Samuel Clemens:(and current day 2018) Young lady, I come from a time when men achieve power and wealth by standing on the backs of the poor, where prejudice and intolerance (racism) are commonplace and power is an end unto itself. And you’re telling me that isn’t how it is anymore?
Counselor Deanna Troi: That’s right.
