House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) on Saturday attacked President Donald Trump as a “charlatan” and vowed to send him back to the “golden throne he came from” in a speech at the California Democratic Party State Convention in Long Beach. “Two years ago I stood before you and I urged you to resist and you did, but we are more than a resistance now. We are a majority!” Schiff told attendees.“We are a majority in one House, and we will become a majority in the other, and we will send that charlatan [President Trump] in the White House back to the golden throne he came from,” the California Democrat continued. He went on: The most grave threat to the life and health of our democracy comes from within — from a president without ethical compass, without understanding of or devotion to our Constitution. There is nothing more dangerous than an unethical president who believes that he is above the law.

Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards, a Democrat, has won re-election in the state’s runoff election, defeating Republican challenger Eddie Rispone and fending off an effort by President Trump to turn the governor’s office red. Rispone’s defeat came just hours after President Trump threw one last endorsement his way before the polls closed. The race was widely seen as a test of Trump’s own popularity amid an impeachment inquiry against him. It may have been Rispone who appeared on the ballot as the challenger to the incumbent Edwards, but Trump injected himself into the race and made clear to Louisiana voters that a loss for Rispone would be felt very personally by the president. Rispone was even described as “pro-Trump” on some of his campaign flyers. “I really need you … to send a message to the corrupt Democrats in Washington,” Trump told voters at a rally in Bossier City on Thursday, urging the crowd to … [Read more...] about John Bel Edwards Defies Trump Opposition to Win Re-Election in Louisiana
California just got major reinforcements in its fight against the Trump administration’s attempt to revoke the state’s ability to set stricter auto-emissions standards. Attorney General Xavier Becerra filed a lawsuit Friday morning, joined by the attorneys general in 22 other states and the District of Columbia, arguing the administration’s stance that it can preempt state emissions standards is unlawful. “Two courts have already upheld California’s emissions standards, rejecting the argument the Trump Administration resurrects to justify its misguided Preemption Rule,” Becerra, a Democrat, said in a statement Friday. “Yet, the Administration insists on attacking the authority of California and other states to tackle air pollution and protect public health.” The lawsuit is the latest twist in a battle over the Trump administration’s attempt to curtail California’s nearly 50-year-old waiver under the Clean Air Act which allows … [Read more...] about California and 22 states file lawsuit over Trump’s stance on emissions standards
California’s crusade against planet-warming emissions seems at times disconnected from the reality of its gridlocked freeways. But that hasn’t stopped a push for change. State officials want new cars to burn less gasoline for each mile they travel, and to use cleaner fuel. They are making electric cars easier to buy and adding bike lanes along major thoroughfares. Cities and counties have ripped apart streets to build new rail lines and bus corridors. But California will have to do far more if it wants to meet a crucial 2030 climate change goal. Then, state greenhouse gases must fall roughly 40% from what they are now. It’s a steep, unprecedented drop — and whether California can transform transportation will determine whether it can meet those goals. The challenge is huge. Even as power plants and other sectors have cleaned up, greenhouse gas emissions from transportation in California have actually grown in recent years, a sign that cleaner and more … [Read more...] about To fight climate change, car-loving California must overhaul transportation. Can it?
