I fully support D C:

    In a Tuesday interview with “MSNBC Live,” Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) threw his support behind giving statehood to Washington, D.C. Lieu said he “fully” supports D.C. statehood because it would allow citizens to have representation and so there would be someone in a position to call on the National Guard in the event of another riot at the U.S. Capitol. “I fully support D.C. statehood,” Lieu advised. “That is one great argument for D.C. statehood. The other is simply equal protection for all. You shouldn’t be having people who have taxation without representation. So, I absolutely support D.C. statehood.” He then shifted to calling on Republicans to “reduce the risk of further political violence” by repeating “one simple, truthful sentence” — “The election was not stolen.” “And I think we should take a step back and ask why were all these folks attacking the Capitol to begin with? It was...
    Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said he “fully” supported President Joe Biden’s reversal of former President Donald Trump’s military transgender policy, Biden issued the executive order Monday. “I fully support the President’s direction that all transgender individuals who wish to serve in the United States military and can meet the appropriate standards shall be able to do so openly and free from discrimination,” Austin said in a statement. The Trump administration required transgender military recruits to serve in their biological sex. Biden’s executive order reverses that policy and allows transgender recruits to serve in their “self-identified” gender. Austin said the department would “immediately take appropriate policy action” to ensure that individuals who identify as transgender are eligible to enter and serve in their self-identified gender. He added: These changes will ensure no one will be separated or discharged, or denied reenlistment, solely on the basis of gender identity. Prospective recruits may...
    The pro-life organization known as Every Black Life Matters (EBLM), a Christian alternative to Black Lives Matter, has sent a letter of commendation to President Donald Trump as he leaves office. In a press release Tuesday, EBLM announced its open commendation letter, signed by the group’s co-founders, Kevin McGary, president; Neil Mammen, executive vice president; and more than 300 individuals, many of whom offered their personal thanks in separate messages. “While there have been many Presidents of the U.S. who have asserted support for the Black community, you have fully demonstrated your commitment and resolve to support and improve Black life by standing firm on the right to life,” the letter reads, and continues: While Progressives/Leftists/Democrats publicly decry “racism,” privately, they have remained silent and complicit while one of their primary funding sources (Planned Parenthood) admitted their notable history of racism (PP of NY July 2020). You, on the other...

    With Trump's overall support among women eroding, he needs to fully capture the evangelical vote. Looking to shore up the evangelical vote, Mike Pence is currently on "tour" with anti-abortion extremist Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List, an organization with a mission "to end abortion by electing national leaders." As Trump's overall support with women erodes, it's critical that he fully capture the evangelical vote. From the start of his 2016 campaign, Trump has promised evangelicals that "Christianity will have power." He said that if he won, "you're going to have plenty of power, you don't need anybody else. You're going to have somebody representing you very, very well." Loading...
    BOSTON (CBS) — What will reopening look like for Massachusetts schools this fall? Gov. Charlie Baker indicated at a Friday news conference that he doesn’t want all schools in the state to be starting fully remote. School districts are being asked to prepare for three potential scenarios: A full reopening, remote-only learning or a hybrid model. Baker said the vast majority of communities in Massachusetts have coronavirus transmission rates low enough to allow for in-person learning. “To say everybody should go remote. . . the facts don’t support it, the data doesn’t support it and the science doesn’t support it,” Baker said. The CDC says “children do not appear to be at higher risk for COVID-19 than adults” based on available evidence. But the state’s two largest teachers’ unions are calling for remote-only learning across Massachusetts because of the uptick in coronavirus cases and concerns about social distancing, access to...

    There is overwhelming support from teachers, parents, and youth for incorporating climate change in K-12 education, as seen in recent surveys. Yet state education standards continue to lag behind. In June, New Jersey became the first state to fully integrate climate change education in all subject areas and grade levels — a major accomplishment and only the beginning of climate change education’s journey into the public school system nationwide. Education standards are developed at the state level, with specific curricula and lesson plans developed at the district and teacher level. When we look at the nation as a whole, climate change education is a patchwork across states and counties — with full integration in some areas and partial or no integration in others. Often limited to science curriculum Today, 44 states, representing 71% of U.S. students, have science education standards that include climate change in some form. Unfortunately, there is a misconception...
    In Maryland’s largest county, Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich and the Montgomery County Council offered their support surrounding local protests in the wake of George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis. In a letter to the community, county leaders said they “fully support” the constitutional rights of their residents to express their views with without fear of bodily harm by police. “The demand for equity, justice and respect sweeping our nation must also be understood in the context of the lack of national leadership to unite America,” the letter said. The letter mentions that the county and its police department will continue to respect protesters and work together to provide an environment for memorials, rallies and nonviolent protests. Following peaceful displays during gatherings in Germantown, Gaithersburg and Silver Spring, county leadership is hopeful that continued dialogue will lead to establishing a safer community. “We are committed to ongoing engagement and collaboration with...
