Speaking on the Senate floor on Tuesday, Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) declared it "the height of irony that Republicans held this Supreme Court seat open for nearly a calendar year while President Obama was in office, but are now rushing to fill the seat for a president whose campaign is under investigation by the FBI."

As the reasons for blocking Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch continue to mount, there is growing concern that Democrats are simply going to let President Donald Trump's nominee "off the hook," as Sen. Dianne Feinstein did during questioning Tuesday.

In one exchange during the second day of Gorsuch's Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Feinstein, the top Democrat on the committee, asked the appellate judge if he agreed with the dissent or the majority opinion in the District of Columbia v. Heller decision. 

After it was clear Gorsuch would not give a clear answer on the case, which upheld an individual's right to possess firearms, Feinstein quickly relented: "Alright, I'll let you off the hook." Watch below:

Commission on the Status of Women (CSW61) moving away from militarize security to Common Security

CSW 61 is taking  place between March 15 and March 24 2017 The Theme of CSW 61 is “ Empowering Indigenous Women”

 

CSW 61 must empower indigenous women to address the concern that was expressed on an Indigenous women's panel at COP22: Indigenous peoples are the most to suffer from but the least responsible, for militarism, climate change, loss of subsistence and exploitation of resources (Statement from panel at Conference of the Parties to the UN framework Convention on Climate Change (COP22 in marrakech morocco)­­­­

 

Throughout the years, through international agreements, member states of the UN have recognized that the military budget has been a waste and misuse of resources. Currently the Global Community is now spending 1.7 trillion per year on the military budget at a time when many basic needs and fundamental rights of indigenous peoples  have not been met. Not only has militarism a waste and misuse of resources, but also militarism is a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions.

 

We must reappropriate the word “security” and not allow it to be distorted by the military. (Dr. Ursula Franklin, internationally renowned scientist and pacifist  (1984 at the lead up conference to Nairobi,1965)

PPWC Statement on Old-Growth Logging on Vancouver Island

“The Public and Private Workers of Canada (PPWC) urges the Government of British Columbia to protect the remaining old-growth rainforest on Vancouver Island. Additionally, the PPWC urges forestry companies harvesting on Vancouver Island to transition to second-growth logging.

The temperate old-growth rainforest found on Vancouver Island is among the rarest ecosystems on the planet – covering less than 0.5 percent of the Earth’s surface. These forests have been lived in and utilized by First Nations for centuries and hold significant cultural values for these Nations. These ecosystems support a diversity of economic activities: forestry, tourism, and wild salmon fisheries to name a few.

Less than 25 per cent of original productive old growth forest on the Vancouver Island remains intact – local governments, environmental groups, some First Nations and unions like the PPWC are calling for the protection of the remaining stands of old-growth.

The PPWC prioritizes forest industry workers, and insists that the transition to second-grow

"Here's the simple truth," Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said Thursday. "You can't be an American company only when it benefits you." (Image: Institute for Taxation and Economic Policy)

Undercutting President Donald Trump's assertion that U.S. corporate taxes are too high—the justification for his and Republican leaders' pitches to lower the business tax rate—a new report finds that many profitable American companies pay far less than the 35 percent often cited by lobbyists and GOP officials.
