Pennsylvania Senator To Trump: "Come After Me You Facist, Loofa-Faced S***-Gibbon" -blogged by @BenitaShae ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ DonaldTrump is known for his Twitter finger antics but this time Pennsylvania senator Daylin Leach is using social media to diss Trump, calling him a "fascist, loofa-faced, s***-gibbon!" on Twitter and Facebook. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to CNN, Leach posted a Politico report on Facebook about the president’s recent White House meeting with county sheriffs from across the country. During the meeting, one sheriff brought up civil asset forfeiture, a practice allowing law enforcement to seize money and property belonging to individuals accused of committing a crime, even before a verdict is handed down. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The sheriff, from Rockwall County, Texas, complained about a Texas state senator seeking to change the law so that a conviction would be required before a suspect’s assets could be seized. The sheriff joked that “the cartel would build a monument” to the legislator. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Who is the state senator? Do you want to give his name? We’ll destroy his career,” Trump responded. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In an interview with Yahoo News, Leach’s spokesman, Steve Hoenstine, didn't back down. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “He’s never really been one to tiptoe around the issues,” Hoenstine said. “He says what he thinks, and he’s really angry in general about what Trump’s doing, and when he saw what Trump said about this other state senator, he took it a little personally because he’s been trying to pass civil asset forfeiture reform in Pennsylvania.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “He makes the comment, and then everyone in the room just laughs, and it’s just so gross.”: Pennsylvania Senator To Trump "Come After Me You Facist, Loofa- Faced Gibbon balleralert Pennsylvania Senator To Trump: "Come After Me You Facist, Loofa-Faced S***-Gibbon" -blogged by @BenitaShae ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ DonaldTrump is known for his Twitter finger antics but this time Pennsylvania senator Daylin Leach is using social media to diss Trump, calling him a "fascist, loofa-faced, s***-gibbon!" on Twitter and Facebook. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to CNN, Leach posted a Politico report on Facebook about the president’s recent White House meeting with county sheriffs from across the country.

Inhabitat.com- Seattle could pull billions of dollars out of its longtime bank because of its role in the construction of the Dakota Access oil pipeline DAPL. On Wednesday, a Seattle City Council committee voted unanimously to divest nearly $3 billion of the city’s funds from Wells Fargo, one of 17 financial institutions involved in financing the contentious project. Although the bill still has to undergo a procedural vote by the full council on Tuesday, it is “widely expected to pass,” activist Shaun King wrote in the Daily News. During the hearing, councilwoman Debora Juarez said that committee members all agreed that divestment was the city’s “goal.” Should the legislation push through, Seattle will not renew its contract with WellsFargo when it expires in 2018. Neither will the city be allowed to make new investments with the bank for three years. The proposal would be a major victory for the pipeline’s opponents, who returned to the site of last year’s monthslong protests at StandingRock after President Donald Trump ordered the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to expedite the completion of the 1,000-mile-long oil pipeline. “You faced down attack dogs, blizzards and rubber bullets,” councilwoman Kshama Sawant, who co-sponsored the bill, told a crowd on Wednesday, referring to the thousands of Native Americans and activists who faced off with law enforcement during last year’s standoff. “If we do not fight we will not win. Let’s build on this, make sure other cities move to divest from Wells Fargo,” she added.

President Donald Trump implemented a MuslimBan that stopped Muslim refugees and immigrants from certain countries entering America. This went to the extent whereby people who have lived in America for years and were RETURNING back from a country on the ban list were refused reentry. The thought of even attempting to apply such ludicrous legislation is shocking to say the least. Why should someone's religious belief or place of birth prevent them from entering America? Hearing all of this truly sunk the hooks of injustice deep into my heart. It's such a scary world we live in, feels like unimaginable things are materialising in sight. I'm thankful to see so many well known figures express outrage publicly and so many citizens protesting in the streets and airports of America. People of all faiths and ethnicities came together united to stand against this injustice. You are all the heroes of our today. Shortly after, a US judge issued a temporary halt allowing those detained at the airports to enter the country. This however is not a permanent fix and does not solve the bigger issue at hand. I myself am going to America in April. Some people have asked me "are sure you're allowed in?". My initial propensity is to think of course I am! After all, I'm a British citizen why wouldn't I be? But then deep down, of course i'm not naive to not know that sadly, flying whilst being Muslim has its own reserved implications. Furthermore, after all this chaos, I can't help but feel even more fearful and confused about the potentiality of what could happen. There's so many airport stories about innocent Muslims being detained over pedantic things. Imagine they dig THIS very piece of writing and question me about it? Above all else, it's this type of injustice that fuels hate crime and divides our planet. I urge everyone to use their voices in whatever capacity they can to learn and speak out about the MuslimBan. This isn't about politics, it's about right and wrong. Just ask yourself, in regards to this whole era, what will be taught in the history lessons of our future children? It's all of our duty to create and put forward a moral and loving world for those after us.: President Donald Trump implemented a MuslimBan that stopped Muslim refugees and immigrants from certain countries entering America.

Named after Emmett Till, the 14-year-old boy from Chicago who was taken from his bed in the middle of night, beat and shot by two white men for allegedly whistling at a white woman, the Justice Department is being encouraged to reach out to “activists, advocates and academics working on these issues.” Other departments who will aid in resolving these cases include the Cold Case Justice Initiative at Syracuse University, Northeastern University School of Law’s Civil Rights and and Restorative Justice Project, The Georgia Civil Rights Cold Cases Project at Emory University. Introduced in 2005 by activist Alvin Sykes, Sykes vowed to Till’s mother Mamie Elizabeth Till-Mobley that he would reopen the case. Originally her son’s killers were acquitted by an all white jury for their crimes. The case was reopened in 2004 and closed three years later when a jury decided not to indict Carolyn Bryant, the woman who accused Emmett Till for whistling at her.

ScienceAlert.com- In a huge move, China has just announced that it will ban all processing and trade of ivory by the end of 2017, with the first factories scheduled to shut down in just three months time, by the end of March. "China will gradually stop the processing and sales of ivories for commercial purposes by the end of 2017," said the official Xinhua news agency, citing a government statement. The move has been heralded as a 'game changer' by environmental organisations such as the WorldWildlifeFund and Natural Resources Defence Council, seeing as China is one of the biggest global markets for ivory, where it’s used as a precious material in jewellery, furniture, and sometimes even Chinese medicine. "This is great news that will shut down the world’s largest market for elephant ivory," Aili Kang, executive director of the Wildlife Conservation Society in Asia, said in a statement. With fewer than half a million Africanelephants remaining, the question is whether this be enough to save this vulnerable species from a steady decline into extinction. More than 20,000 elephants are killed for their tusks each year, according to the World Wildlife Fund for Nature, with much of it destined for ivory-hungry markets in China, Hong Kong, and the United States. Some African countries have even seen a 60 percent decline in elephant numbers between 2009 and 2014. Since 1989, there’s been an international treaty in place outlawing the sale of ivory harvested after 1975, known as the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) But without local legislation to back this up, the treaty often goes ignored. Last year, China committed itself to slowly strangling domestic trade in ivory products. "We will strictly control ivory processing and trade until the commercial processing and sale of ivory and its products are eventually halted," announced the head of China’s State Forestry Administration, Zhao Shucong in May last year. This was just one part of a 10-point plan intended to eradicate the sale and distribution of ivory across the country, which included education campaigns and increased online surveillance.: China just announced it will ban all ivory trade by the end of 2017 @seekthetruth ScienceAlert.com- In a huge move, China has just announced that it will ban all processing and trade of ivory by the end of 2017, with the first factories scheduled to shut down in just three months time, by the end of March.
