Protect America’s Heritage. Protect The Grand Canyon. 17.10.2016 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
When President Obama created the César E. Chávez National Memorial in 2012, the first National Park unit to recognize the work of a contemporary Latino, he unleashed a wave of support for making our parks and public lands more relevant to diverse audiences. Since taking office, President Obama has used his executive authority to add 23 national monuments to our system of protected public lands. Sites designated because of their particular historical or cultural significance include the César Chávez National Monument (CA), Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial (DC), Charles Young Buffalo Soldiers National Monument (OH), Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Historic Park (MD), Stonewall National Monument (NY), and Honouliuli National Monument (HI). These places tell stories that deserve to be shared with the world. And there are many more, which is why the president is considering designating additional public lands, to better reflect and respect diverse experiences of people and nature. Sí, Se Puede. ...

Does Donald Trump Pay Taxes? Records Given to NYT Show How He May Have Avoided Taxes for 18 Years 4.10.2016 Democracy Now!
With just over a month until Election Day, The New York Times has dropped a bombshell report that suggests Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump may have avoided paying any federal income taxes for 18 years. Trump's campaign has not challenged the authenticity of the leaked tax documents used in the story. We get the details from three-time Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter David Barstow, who led the Times' investigation, and David Cay Johnston, another Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter and author of the new biography, "The Making of Donald Trump."

Environmental Concerns -- and Anger -- Grow in Month After Thousand-Year Flood Strikes Louisiana 19.9.2016 Truthout - All Articles
In the aftermath of the 1000-year flood that hit southern Louisiana in August, environmental and public health concerns are mounting as the waters recede. Residents want to know why many areas that never flooded before were left in ruin this time, raising questions about the role water management played in potentially exacerbating the flood. The smell of mold lingers on streets where the contents from flooded homes and businesses are stacked in piles along the curbside, as well as in neighborhoods next to landfills where storm debris is taken. Polluted Floodwaters I met up with Frank Bonifay whose home and business are in the Spanish Lake Basin region, about 20 miles south of Baton Rouge.  We went to his home on Alligator Bayou Road, which for weeks after the flood was only accessible by boat.  Car in front of flooded home off Ridge Road in Ascension Parish, Louisiana, on September 2. ©2016 Julie Dermansky On our way we drove past the Honeywell Geismar chemical plant near Saint Gabriel, where workers ...

The House Intelligence Committee’s Terrible, Horrible, Very Bad Snowden Report 18.9.2016 Commondreams.org Views
Barton Gellman

Late on Thursday afternoon the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence released a three-page executive summary (four, if we count the splendid cover photo) of its two-year inquiry into Edward Snowden’s National Security Agency (NSA) disclosures. On first reading, I described it as an “aggressively dishonest” piece of work.

In a world breaking monthly temperature records, advertising cars should be criminal 16.9.2016 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
A free daily newspaper targetting transit riders should never be wrapped in car ads. On Monday the whole front of Montreal's Metro paper promoted Kia. All of page two and the back of a paper targeted at the city's transit riders also promoted an unhealthy, lethal, inefficient and utterly unsustainable mode of transportation. Incredibly, public transit systems regularly glorify the private automobile. Car ads are not uncommon on buses or in metros. During a trip to Philadelphia a few years ago, the great hall at the city's beautiful old train station was covered with a 50 ft x 30 ft car ad. It seemed more than a little out of place. Would you see a promotion for trains at a car ...

Obama Is Blocking The Path To Justice For 9/11 Victims' Families 14.9.2016 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
Back in '08, when people said Barack Obama was "the one," I didn't realize they meant that he would be "the one" and only person standing alone in blocking the path to justice for the 9/11 victims' families. Mr. Obama, please get out of our way and let us have some justice and peace 15 years after the brutal murder of our 3,000 loved ones. JASTA ( Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act, S.2040 ) is a well-thought out, powerful piece of anti-terrorism legislation. It does exactly what it says--it brings all those who fund terrorism to justice. In a time where groups like ISIS are stomping around the globe decapitating people, ramming busses into crowds, and blowing up nightclubs, everyone (except Barack Obama) agrees that we need to stop terrorism in its tracks. One effective way to stop terrorists is to attack them at the root of their enterprise: their terrorist funding. Without funds, terrorists can't run and maintain websites or training camps. Without funding, terrorists can't rent trucks, buy ...

American women fear a Trump presidency... and so do I. 9.9.2016 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
In focus groups with women voters in Pennsylvania and Nevada this week, my organization posed a simple question: "I'm going to say a name and I want you to tell me the first thing that comes to your mind." When we uttered the words "Donald Trump," the comments came flying: "Scary. Obnoxious. Like a tyrant." "Liar. Narcissist. Racist." "I can't trust anyone with such an explosive temper." The results, while anecdotal, have been confirmed in survey after survey ever since. In a recent Washington Post-ABC News poll , three-quarters of registered voters said Trump is biased against women and minorities. Nearly three in four African-American women are now "strongly" afraid of what will happen if Trump is elected, a Gallup poll confirms. American women are fearful of a Trump presidency and so am I. In incident after incident, interview upon interview, Trump has insulted and disrespected women. Consider just a few choice examples: He's called women fat pigs, slobs and disgusting animals, mocked a Gold Star ...

A security researcher found a problem in Google's own login page that could allow a hacker to easily steal people's passwords - and the company apparently isn't too worried about fixing it. In a post published Saturday on his personal website , Aidan Woods writes of the find and some frustrating interactions he had with Google's security team, which told him they would not track it as a security bug.

THE FIRST LATINA SENATOR: Why Chinese-Americans Should Support Catherine Cortez Masto 31.8.2016 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
THE FIRST LATINA SENATOR: Why Chinese-Americans Should Support Catherine Cortez Masto! By Don C. Reed In high school, I worked one Summer in the fields. Picking strawberries looked easy: just bend over to the ground, and twist each berry gently off its stalk, being careful not to bruise it, or you wouldn't get paid. Each double-sided row was a quarter-mile long, and completing it earned one dollar.When I finished the first row (it took three hours) an old woman called to me. "You no make money that way--too slow! Come sit in the shade beside me and I show you how pull stems." As her fingers flew, yanking the stems, setting the berries into green plastic boxes, she told me about her life: how every year she and her husband and their children followed the crops. One man told me he was building a house, working the season, buying a few more bricks every year. They all sent money home, remittances , to keep the old ones in the family alive. (Taking those remittances, I would later learn, is how Donald ...
