      Hey there, how has school been this year? I’m back teaching 8th grade history (US History) in person. Despite being vaccinated and boostered, I’m still nervous everyday. It’s kind of exhausting.

        Hi, Betsy:) It’s exhausting actually. We got a new principal and so many new teachers too… on top of all the rest of the things going on… it’s just a lot, which is why you all don’t see me quite as often here as normal. Still peek in from time to time, but lots going on. Hope school is going ok for you . I’m all boosted and always wear my mask inside school… if I’m outside, I feel comfortable enough to take it off. My break:)
        Happy Thanksgiving to you and everyone reading here.🙏🏼🍁

    “Miseducation”:
    How Fossil Fuel Lobbyists Push Climate Denialism to Kids in U.S. Schools

    “We look at how the fossil fuel industry is shaping children’s education in the United States.
    The Texas State Board of Education is set to vote on whether or not new science standards for middle schoolers should include climate change.
    The language they choose will ultimately dictate how textbooks nationwide address the issue.
    The board already watered down the standards after fierce lobbying by fossil fuel companies,
    despite urging from climate scientists that school curriculums should reflect how human activity,
    such as the release of greenhouse gases,
    has affected the climate.

    We speak with investigative reporter Katie Worth, who visited schools across the United States
    and found corporate and political interests are blocking the truth about the climate crisis f
    rom being taught in classrooms.

    Her new book is “Miseducation: How Climate Change Is Taught in America.” “
    There’s a long history of the fossil fuel industry trying to get their messages to children,
    because that shapes how future generations will think about their industry and how they will regulate their industry,” says Worth.

    “The day he pleaded not guilty to felony homicide, Rittenhouse flashed a white supremacist symbol and was “loudly serenaded” by a group of men at a bar who belted out the anthem of the Proud Boys,
    a far-right extremist group, according to prosecutors.

    On the night of the shooting, minutes before Rittenhouse opened fire,
    police in Kenosha thanked the rifle-toting teen and offered him water as he walked the streets.
    “We appreciate you guys, we really do,” one officer told him.”

    “Conservatives are encouraging white vigilantes like Rittenhouse to police progressive spaces by all means.
    As one Slate article put it last year, “’Own the Libs’ Is Gradually Morphing Into ‘Kill the Libs.’”

      Congressman Nadler tweet:
      “This heartbreaking verdict is a miscarriage of justice and sets a dangerous precedent which justifies federal review by DOJ. Justice cannot tolerate armed persons crossing state lines looking for trouble while people engage in First Amendment-protected protest.”

    • November 22, 2021 at 10:39 am

      imo Mr. Rosenbaum and Mr. Huber, who bravely paid with their lives to prevent Rittenhouse from causing injury to others, should be posthumously recognized for their selfless actions.

    NAACP President:
    Rittenhouse Verdict ‘Was An Injustice’

    “NAACP President Derrick Johnson joins Zerlina Maxwell to discuss the acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse
    who fatally shot two men and injured a third
    during protests against the death of a Black man by police.
    Johnson says he believes the lack of accountability may embolden others to “display their white supremacist behavior in the public square.”

    The family of victim Anthony Huber:
    “Today’s verdict means there is no accountability for the person who murdered our son.
    It sends the unacceptable message that armed civilians can show up in any town, incite violence and then use the danger they have created to justify shooting people in the street.”

    • November 22, 2021 at 11:59 am

      Derrrick Johnson, President and CEO NAACP, to Zerlina Maxwell:

      “I hope that community…recognizes that this particular Judge is not providing justice in that community.”

      “Here’s a 17-year-old who came across state lines with a firearm that he purchased illegally,
      driven by his mother to a community that did not invite him,
      allegedly protecting property that was not his property,
      and to support law enforcement officers who didn’t need support.
      And so there is no logical reason for him to be there.
      The fact that this judge dismissed the armed charges which shouldn’t have been dismissed.
      The real question here is was there federal crime committed?
      Should the Biden administration be bringing federal charges in this case?
      Do we have a U.S. attorney that’s been appointed in this jurisdiction so that we can look at whether or not this young man should be charged?

      You and I both know had this person been African-American or Latino, he would be behind bars tonight.”

    Father Of Man Killed By Rittenhouse
    Slams Marjorie Taylor Greene For Attacking Son’s Character

    “The father of Kyle Rittenhouse victim Anthony Huber slams the Rittenhouse trial verdict, and Marjorie Taylor Greene for attacking his son’s character. John Huber, father of Anthony Huber, who was killed by Kyle Rittenhouse, says of Marjorie Tayler Greene: ‘I hope she never has to deal with the death of a child.’”
    (ReidOut)

    John Huber, father of Anthony Huber, to Joy Reid:
    ”Yes I don’t know where that information came from about his home life.
    He had a good Mom. And he had a good family….he was a good kid. He wouldn’t hurt anybody.”

    Reid:
    “He was a part of some of these protests partly because he knew Jacob Blake, who was the the Black man who was shot by police multiple times and left paralyzed. So he knew him….and so, in your mind, why do you think he was there that day?”

    Huber:
    “Well for one thing, he loved to skateboard. He was there skateboarding. There was probably a thousand other people on the street that night. And that’s his — that’s where he skateboarded. He had every right to be there….and he was there helping people.”

    • November 23, 2021 at 11:35 am

      Reid:
      “Was your son the type of person who would have confronted somebody he saw have a gun? Is that something that reads with what you knew about your son?”

      HUBER:
      ‘It was a pretty dangerous and heroic attempt by him.
      And I don’t think I would have had the nerve to do that, what he did.
      And he was trying to stop — stop a shooter.
      He was trying to stop an active shooter.
      He — they all saw Rosenbaum get killed.
      Everyone saw that.
      Everyone that was there saw Rosenbaum get killed.
      That kid turned around and mowed down Rosenbaum.
      He just mowed him down.

      I don’t know what videos these other people are watching.
      And I don’t know how the jury came to that, except for the fact that the judge had his hand on the scale of justice — I saw video where he just turned and mowed that guy down.
      Rosenbaum didn’t touch him.

      And from there, he (Rittenhouse) became an active shooter, and he ran away.
      He ran away from a murder scene like a coward. And he was just trying to get away.
      And he used deadly force to get away. That’s it.”

    • November 23, 2021 at 11:40 am

      Huber:
      “I don’t know how they were able to decide that Rittenhouse was in danger,
      that his life was threatened,
      because a little guy was screaming obscenities at him?”
      He went there with a gun to be a menace
      and to be a big man with a gun where he didn’t belong.
      And what did he think was going to happen?
      What did the police think was going to happen with this little kid out on the street with an AR-15?
      Nobody questioned him – because he was on their side, because he picked their side.
      A little white kid with an AR-15: ‘Oh, he’s on our side. We don’t have to question him.’
      Matter of fact, we will coordinate with him,
      give him a water bottle, and say:
      ‘Good job kid. Now go home. Oh, you killed somebody? We’re not interested’.”

    • November 23, 2021 at 11:45 am

      Huber:
      “When we heard the verdict, it was like he got killed all over again.
      We had to relive this all over again.
      And every time we’ve seen it on TV, and every time it was brought up, and all these attacks on him and us, those people should be ashamed of themselves.
      And we feel like we have been raped.
      We have been raped by half of the country that supported him.
      And those people should be ashamed of themselves.
      He’s a murderer.
      That guy is a murderer.
      He murdered two people. And he has two murders on his conscience.

      Huber:
      “It shouldn’t have been about the gun, or it shouldn’t have beena Republican/Democrat issue.
      Nobody’s wanting their guns. Nobody wants their guns.
      What are they afraid of?
      And (Trump) shouldn’t have spoke up about it either.
      Trump had no business weighing in on it.
      I stopped supporting him that day he offended me, when he said: ‘Oh, it looks like self-defense’.
      We didn’t even know all the details.
      Nobody even seen all the videos.
      And he spoke up on it. Who does he think he is, an expert?
      You know, I lost all respect for him.”

    • November 23, 2021 at 11:51 am

      Huber:
      “And Anthony was a pacifist. He was a pacifist….but this stuff with Rittenhouse…
      he (Anthony) was trying to save people,
      he was trying to stop a mass shooter.”

    RADIO HOST GOING ON HUNGER STRIKE UNTIL VOTING RIGHTS BILL PASSES

    “Joe Madison, who is Black, has taken action after Senate Republicans last week blocked the starting of debate on a voting rights act named after the late congressman and civil rights icon John Lewis.

    “As a political protest, I am beginning a hunger strike today by abstaining from eating any solid food until Congress passes, and President Biden signs, the Freedom to Vote Act or the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act,”
    Joe Madison, a host of SiriusXM Urban View, said on Monday.
    “And I repeat, just as food is necessary to sustain life, the right to vote is necessary to sustain democracy.”

    Scholars of democracy:
    Statement in Support of the Freedom to Vote Act

    “This is no ordinary moment in the course of our democracy. It is a moment of great peril and risk.”

    Concludes with:
    “If Congress fails to pass the Freedom to Vote Act, American democracy will be at critical risk.
    Not only could this failure undermine the minimum condition for electoral democracy—free and fair elections—but it would in turn likely result in an extended period of minority rule, which a majority of the country would reject as undemocratic and illegitimate. This would have grave consequences not only for our democracy, but for political order, economic prosperity, and the national security of the United States as well.

    Defenders of democracy in America still have a slim window of opportunity to act.
    But time is ticking away, and midnight is approaching. To lose our democracy but preserve the filibuster in its current form—in which a minority can block popular legislation without even having to hold the floor—would be a short-sighted mistake of historic proportions. The remarkable history of the American system of government is replete with critical, generational moments in which liberal democracy itself was under threat, and Congress asserted its central leadership role in proving that a system of free and fair elections can work.

    We urge the Senate to suspend the filibuster rule for this measure and pass the Freedom to Vote Act.
    This would uphold the Senate’s noblest tradition of preserving and strengthening American democracy.”

    NASA’s DART Mission Will Launch on a SpaceX Falcon 9 Rocket

    Stay tuned for launch coverage of NASA’s DART mission to an asteroid here on the NASA blog,
    on NASA TV and the agency’s website. Live coverage begins at 12:30 a.m. EST Nov. 24 (9:30 p.m. PST Nov. 23). Launch is no earlier than 1:21 a.m. EST Nov. 24 (10:21 p.m. PST Nov 23).

    Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART)
    DART is a spacecraft designed to impact an asteroid as a test of technology.
    DART’s target asteroid is NOT a threat to Earth.
    This asteroid system is a perfect testing ground to see if intentionally crashing a spacecraft into an asteroid is an effective way to change its course, should an Earth-threatening asteroid be discovered in the future.

    “DART is the first-ever mission dedicated to investigating and demonstrating one method of asteroid deflection
    by changing an asteroid’s motion in space through kinetic impact.

    This method will have DART deliberately collide with a target asteroid—which poses no threat to Earth— in order to change its speed and path.

    DART’s target is the binary, near-Earth asteroid system Didymos, composed of the roughly 780-meter (2,560-foot) -diameter “Didymos” and the smaller, approximately 160-meter (530-foot)-size “Dimorphos,” which orbits Didymos. DART will impact Dimorphos to change its orbit within the binary system, and the DART Investigation Team will compare the results of DART’s kinetic impact with Dimorphos to highly detailed computer simulations of kinetic impacts on asteroids.

    Doing so will evaluate the effectiveness of this mitigation approach and assess how best to apply it to future planetary defense scenarios, as well as how accurate the computer simulations are and how well they reflect the behavior of a real asteroid.”

      The new tallies on initial unemployment claims aren’t just better now than before the pandemic,
      they’ve actually improved to a 52-year low.

      “The week before President Joe Biden’s inauguration, weekly unemployment claims were still a painfully high 886,000. CNBC reported this morning on the newest data from the Labor Department, which offers the best news on layoffs since before I was born.

      The ranks of those submitting jobless claims tumbled to their lowest level in more than 52 years last week, the Labor Department reported Wednesday. New filings totaled 199,000, a number not seen since Nov. 15, 1969, when claims totaled 197,000.”

    The Problem of Political Despair
    (Michelle Goldman)

    “On Friday morning, after a night of insomnia fueled by worries about raising children in a collapsing society,
    I opened my eyes, started reading about efforts by Wisconsin Republicans to seize control of the state’s elections, then paused to let my tachycardiac heartbeat subside. Marinating in the news is part of my job,
    but doing so lately is a source of full-body horror. If this were simply my problem, I’d write about it in a journal instead of in The New York Times.”

    “What’s terrifying is that even if Democrats win back public confidence, they can win more votes than Republicans and still lose. Gerrymandering alone is enough to tip the balance in the House. North Carolina, a state Joe Biden lost by 1.3 percentage points, just passed a redistricting map that would create 10 Republican seats, three Democratic ones and one competitive one. “Democrats would have to win North Carolina by 11.4 points just to win half its congressional seats,” FiveThirtyEight reported.

    There are already lawsuits against the map, but the Supreme Court — which is controlled by conservatives even though Democrats won the popular vote in seven out of the last eight elections — gutted constitutional limitations on gerrymandering in 2019.”

      Pls sell the BBB, pass the BBB + Voting Rights bills + nail Trump and his co-conspirators to the wall.

      Stop the media bashing of the Democratic President who is already successful with two historic pieces of legislation and Covid vaccinations in full swing, despite the machinations of do-nothing trumpQ.

      Use the Rule of Law to stop the GOPQ march to a Russian-style anti-democracy and mafia state,
      and threat of violence.

    Bring it Home:
    The Build Back Better Act is headed to the Senate

    “Now that the Build Back Better Act (aka the budget reconciliation bill) has passed the House of Representatives, we are about to enter what is hopefully the final stage of this saga. The result, we hope, will be that the Senate passes substantial climate legislation that could help us lay the foundation we need for bold transformations in our society to come. This latest version of the bill includes a sweeping array of investments aimed at making our communities healthier, improving access to clean energy, public transportation, and fair wages, and making some of the big investments we need to accelerate the transition away from fossil fuels as a society while creating good jobs and addressing some long-standing inequities in the process. The $600 billion in climate action and environmental justice (to be spent over the next decade) would reduce average household utility bills by about $500 per year, create a Civilian Climate Corps, make it less expensive to install solar on rooftops and electrify buildings, and replace lead pipes across the country. This bill is supported by a wide array of groups in Montana, including both environmental advocacy groups and groups that advocate for working families.

    The Build Back Better Act would be the first truly substantial climate legislation ever passed in the US,
    and it is meant to address economic inequality in tandem with efforts to transition to clean energy. It would help us make significant strides to reverse the trend of growing greenhouse gas emissions, invest in resilient communities that can weather the storms to come, and help shore up community members who have been struggling in a nexus of failing social and economic systems. The bill expands access to Medicare, affordable prescription medication and pre-K, along with substantial investments in an affordable clean energy transition.

    This current version would be paid for by raising taxes on big corporations and the ultra-wealthy.

    Getting to this point was no small feat. Corporate polluters have long invested billions of dollars into propaganda and ads meant to confuse the public and redirect blame for the climate crisis. These efforts have prevented any serious climate legislation from passing in Congress up until now. However, we’re in a new wave of awareness and momentum for climate action, and Montana has a deep stake in winning on this one.
    Will people power overcome the fossil fuel lobby this time?”

      While Rosendale and Daines are opposed to the BBB:
      Montanans across the state from urban centers to rural areas, have been lobbying for months to support this bill. Senator Tester is out there in the community fighting for the BBB…pls proceed Senator!
