The Green New Deal


The Plan for a Green New Deal (and the draft legislation) shall recognize that a national, industrial, economic mobilization of this scope and scale is a historic opportunity to virtually eliminate poverty in the United States and to make prosperity, wealth and economic security available to everyone participating in the transformation. In furtherance of the foregoing, the Plan (and the draft legislation) shall:
provide all members of our society, across all regions and all communities, the opportunity, training and education to be a full and equal participant in the transition, including through a job guarantee program to assure a living wage job to every person who wants one;
take into account and be responsive to the historical and present-day experiences of low-income communities, communities of color, indigenous communities, rural and urban communities and the front-line communities most affected by climate change, pollution and other environmental harm;
mitigate deeply entrenched racial, regional and gender-based inequalities in income and wealth (including, without limitation, ensuring that federal and other investment will be equitably distributed to historically impoverished, low income, deindustrialized or other marginalized communities);
include additional measures such as basic income programs, universal health care programs and any others as the select committee may deem appropriate to promote economic security, labor market flexibility and entrepreneurism; and>
deeply involve national and local labor unions to take a leadership role in the process of job training and worker deployment.
The Plan for a Green New Deal (and the draft legislation) shall recognize that innovative public and other financing structures are a crucial component in achieving and furthering the goals and guidelines relating to social, economic, racial, regional and gender-based justice and equality and cooperative and public ownership set forth in paragraphs (2)(A)(i) and (6)(B). The Plan (and the draft legislation) shall, accordingly, ensure that the majority of financing of the Plan shall be accomplished by the federal government, using a combination of the Federal Reserve, a new public bank or system of regional and specialized public banks, public venture funds and such other vehicles or structures that the select committee deems appropriate, in order to ensure that interest and other investment returns generated from public investments made in connection with the Plan will be returned to the treasury, reduce taxpayer burden and allow for more investment.

Here's what climate refugees need to make it through a disaster. How would you fare? — Next up, how the government shutdown targets survivors of domestic and sexual violence – plus the age-old story of colonial oppression gets a reboot via an outgoing Representative's bill block. Finally, Elizabeth Vega joins us to talk about the Tornillo occupation – and how to address the rise of imprisoned migrant children and families.

Heart of Gold ~ Native News Online

WINNIPEG, Manitoba — When 16-year-old Adrian Sutherland in the isolated Cree community of Attawapiskat borrowed a harmonica from an Elder, he fashioned a homemade harness using a coat-hanger, two sticks and elastic bands, and set out to learn Neil Young’s Heart of Gold. He had no way of knowing back then, that 25 years later, his own musical journey would come full circle with the release of a music video that not only pays homage to the song, but also the place where he learned to play it   ......

......  Heart of Gold is written by Neil Young, with lyrics translated into Mushkegowuk Cree by Sutherland, and recorded with permission from Wixen Music Publishing, Inc. It was produced by Midnight Shine and John-Angus MacDonald (The Trews) at Jukasa Studios in Ohsweken, Ontario, with engineers Jill Zimmermann and Darren Magierowski, and mastered in Toronto by Joćo Carvalho.

December 30, 2018

On , join us for our National Watch Night Service: Building a in 2019 in Raleigh, NC! We'll hear from , and leaders of who understand why we must build a movement in 2019. More info:

The watch night service in 1862 was celebrated by enslaved and free African Americans, abolitionists, and others awaiting news that the Emancipation Proclamation would become law to free Blacks living in the South. The national Watch Night Service in 2018 will bring together people of conscience to recommit ourselves to the fight against systemic racism, poverty, the war economy/militarism, ecological devastation and our nation's distorted moral narrative in 2019.

We will hear from Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II and Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis as well as North Carolinians who understand why we must build a movement to end systemic racism, poverty, the war economy/militarism, ecological devastation and our nation's distorted moral narrative.  All are welcome!

Moral witnesses taken by border patrol!

And We are not afraid!
We will fight for liberation cause We know
why We were made!

Today, the Poor People's Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival, the Kairos Center and Repairers of the Breach answer the call from the California Poor People's Campaign and the American Friends Service Committee to join faith leaders at the U.S.-Mexico border. Together, we demand a clear and just immigration system that prioritizes family reunification and the demilitarization of our communities on the border and the interior.

Watch the livestream of the interfaith service here**(fb)

The startling heartlessness with which our immigration system treats migrants is a rejection of human dignity. As we watch these families walking everyday closer, we see the same faces as those in our domestic refugee crisis from homeless encampments in Chico to the wildfires throughout Northern California. The haze of tear gas choking migrant children goes hand in hand with the armored cars deployed in Ferguson, Missouri.

We have a moral obligation to uphold our nation’s promise to welcome the tired, the poor, the huddled masses yearning to breathe free. We cannot succumb to hateful rhetoric and conspiracy theories. Now, more than ever, we must stand for all those with whom we share a common suffering and hope.

We’re here today at the San Diego border to demand the demilitarization of our border communities and an immigration system that recognizes the shared humanity of migrants seeking safety and refuge.

But we can’t do this without you: Share our petition now to support the movement, wherever you are, and demand Congress take action.

Somebody has been hurting our people and it’s gone on far too long. And we won’t be silent anymore.

Forward together, not one step back,

                 A Fusion Films Tribute To Rosanell Eaton**(Vimeo)

Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II's statement on the passing of Rosa Nell Eaton

Ms. Rosa Nell Eaton was the 97-year-old Matriarch in our four-year successful court fight against voter suppression, from 2013 to 2016. While alive she stayed focused on the prize of justice for all.

She once told me, "They think I'm gonna die before this case is over, but I'm not gonna die. I'm fed up and fired up!"

In her 90s Mother Eaton was arrested and taken to jail. She marched in the streets and testified in the courts, and she even told Gen Eric Holder to tell his lawyers not to play with our case but to fight back.

I think it's ironic that near the same week Mother goes home fro her eternal reward, Thom Farr, who led the case that threatened to take her voting rights, is denied entry onto the Federal Court.

She reminded us always that the only reason for the NC NAACP to exist is to

December 21, 2018

Firefighters contained the Mine Fire in Texas and the Walker Fire in Oklahoma this week.

Weather: Overall breezy conditions with seasonal temperatures are expected across the country through the weekend. Widespread rain and high elevation snow will move into the northwestern quarter of the country as a stronger front moves on shore Saturday night. This system is a slow-moving one and it will significantly intensify as it slowly moves southeast into the Great Basin by Christmas Eve. Mountain locations across northern California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Utah should receive a good deal of snow through Christmas while the lower elevations generally receive rain. A breezy northerly flow will develop on the back side of the system. There is some potential for Sundowner and other off shore winds across southern California next Wednesday and Thursday. Meanwhile in the East, the storm system is expected to continue its intensification process as it moves east to the Great Plains. A significant snow event may be possible across the upper Midwest Wednesday night and Thursday.

"Winners Take All: The Elite Charade of
Changing the World" by
Anand Giridharadas

Billionaires Are the Lethal Monkey on the Back of the
American Public
- Audio Interview* (30 mins) ~ Bob Scheer's Truthdig

"Winners Take All: The Elite Charade of Changing the World"–to my mind, this is an inside view of a new ruling class. I don’t think I’m exaggerating. It’s a world that–you have all the watering holes, the TED conferences, the Aspen, everywhere else; you’ve been there, you’ve been there as a journalist for The New York Times for about 12, 15 years. You studied at some elite institutions, you worked at the Aspen Institute. And what we meet in this book are people who are into a great exercise of delusion, that they can make out like bandits and still be Robin Hood. Is that not the deal?
