and when they don't

Do Black lives matter to Democrats? As Tim Alberta recently reported, a lot of Black voters think the answer is no. That may explain why the Democrats are blocking the GOP justice reform bill in the Senate: With Black voters already discouraged, Democrats don’t want them to get the idea that Republicans may have something to offer.

USA Today ??? Don't suppose they're getting truly woke.

We should gather a group of concerned black citizens to protest against BLM to tell the world they are offended that we are allowing terrorists to use their race to implement an agenda that goes against everything that America stands for.

The only party that actually values black lives is the Republican Party. If only the media would be honest about it.

Democrats unconditionally support the leading cause of death among all black people: Planned Abortionists, Inc. You know, those all caring monsters that murder hundreds of thousands of babies a year, most of which are black. The Democrat Party is nothing more than an extension of the antebellum South attitudes and the eugenic policies of Margret Sanger and the fascist regimes of the 1920s and 30s.

They matter ONLY when there is to be some political gain to be had. Other than that, dozens of black deaths per month in Chicago and other cities happen without any significant response.

Greta Thunberg says the world needs to learn the lessons of coronavirus and treat climate change with similar urgency. That means the world acting "with necessary force", the Swedish climate activist says in an exclusive interview with BBC News. She doesn't think any "green recovery plan" will solve the crisis alone. And she says the world is now passing a "social tipping point" on climate and issues such as Black Lives Matter.  Corrections*

The House session kicked off at 10 a.m. with a stunning visual of the deadliness of the novel coronavirus.

Saudi Arabia has detained three senior Saudi princes including Prince Ahmed bin Abdulaziz, the younger brother of King Salman, and Prince Mohammed bin Nayef, the king's nephew, for allegedly planning a coup, sources with knowledge of the matter said.  Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, King Salman's son and de facto ruler of the country, the world's top oil exporter and a key U.S. ally, has moved to consolidate power since ousting Mohammed bin Nayef as heir to the throne in a 2017 palace coup. Later that year, he arrested several royals and other prominent Saudis, holding them for months at Riyadh's Ritz-Carlton hotel in an anti-corruption campaign that caused shockwaves at home and abroad.

London - Teen climate activist Greta Thunberg met Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai at Britain's University of Oxford on Tuesday and posed for a photo together. Yousafzai, widely known by her first name, Malala, is a student at the University of Oxford. The 22-year-old posted a photo on Instagram of herself and Thunberg sitting on a bench with their arms around each other, with a caption "Thank you, @gretathunberg" and a heart emoji.

It's the most powerful greenhouse gas known to humanity, and emissions have risen rapidly in recent years, the BBC has learned. Sulphur hexafluoride, or SF6, is widely used in the electrical industry to prevent short circuits and accidents. But leaks of the little-known gas in the UK and the rest of the EU in 2017 were the equivalent of putting an extra 1.3 million cars on the road.

These bedrooms and bathrooms are nobody’s master. Earlier this month, the Houston Association of Realtors dropped the word “master” for specification, opting for “primary” as a more inclusive descriptor. “The Multiple Listing Service advisory group regularly reviews the terms and fields used in the MLS to make sure they are consistent with the current market environment,” read an association statement. “The updates to primary bedroom and primary bath were among nine requests for review that were submitted by members and considered at the most recent meetings.”(Snip) Dietrich von Biedenfeld, a business professor at the University of Houston, noted that the historic master/slave plantation dynamic

It was downpouring on Halsey Street in Newark Saturday afternoon, but that didn’t stop Kween Moore from dancing in between yellow letters she helped paint on the road to spell out “ALL BLACK LIVES MATTER.” “This is including everyone,” said Moore, who is an art teacher at Greater Oaks Charter School. “That’s why ‘all’ is emphasized at the beginning because we’re not leaving anybody out. No matter your gender, no matter what shade of Black you are.”(Snip) The groups also painted “ABOLISH WHITE SUPREMACY” on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in front of the Essex County Hall of Records.  Correction*

An interesting outcome and juxtaposition amid the new policing approach advanced by the Minneapolis City Council. After voting to remove police from the community, the same city council now approve hiring private security for themselves at a current rate of $4,500 per day. The taxpayers, who pay their salaries, are left to fend for themselves, but the city council members won’t be left without. Funny how that happens.MINNEAPOLIS (FOX 9) – The City of Minneapolis is spending $4,500 a day for private security for three council members who have received threats following the police killing of George Floyd, (Snip) security details have cost the city $63,000 over

Veteran Democratic strategist James Carville is still riding Bill Clinton’s coattails, nearly 30 years after Slick Willy was first elected to the White House, and he thinks you’re more likely to see President Donald Trump withdraw from the race than win reelection. With a series of recent polling showing that presumptive 2020 Democratic nominee Joe Biden well ahead of Trump — just about every poll in America has Hillary Clinton beating the president — MSNBC host Brian Williams asked Carville for his thoughts on a new Fox News poll showing Biden leading in major battleground states.

In a discussion on Fox News about the tear-down of America’s monuments and statues taking place in hot spots around the nation right now, liberal pundit Marie Harf, who served as a national security adviser for Barack Obama, said that “process,” not mob violence, should dictate the outcomes of these structures. She said, in the end, the Confederate statutes should be removed because the Confederates were “traitors” to the country. Spoken like a true elitist. Spoken like a true-blue “The Federal Government Knows Best,” anti-states’ rights elitist. Spoken like an elitist who’s forgotten or worse, dismissed, historical truths.

Early Friday morning, hundreds of Antifa attacked police and the North Precinct in Portland. They tried to set up another autonomous zone around the precinct with fencing and dumpsters, tried to lock police in the precinct and light it on fire, and pelted the police outside with objects like glass bottles. (snip) But Antifa was at it again Friday night, targeting the Central Precinct this time. Except this time, police didn’t let it go as far as the night before. This time, when the radicals tried to set up barricades outside the precinct, the police weren’t having it.

Tarlov argued, “[Black Lives Matter is] advocating for a platform that is based on the importance of treating black people in this country equally… All lives matter cannot occur until black lives matter equally.” Boothe interjected saying, “But do the Marxist tactics not concern you?” to which Jessica said, “No, it doesn’t concern me that there are roots in Marxism.”

For about four days, the radio waves would arrive at random. Then, for the next 12, nothing. Then, another four days of haphazard pulses. Followed by another 12 days of silence. The pattern—the well-defined swings from frenzy to stillness and back again—persisted like clockwork for more than a year. Dongzi Li, a doctoral student at the University of Toronto, started tracking these signals in 2019. She works on a Canadian-led project, CHIME, that studies astrophysical phenomena called “fast radio bursts.” These invisible flashes, known as FRBs for short, reach Earth from all directions in space. They show up without warning and flash for a few milliseconds, matching the radiance of entire galaxies.

Margot Robbie will star in a female-led version of “Pirates of the Caribbean” for Disney with “Birds of Prey” writer Christina Hodson on board to write the script. Disney is in early development of the untitled project. The Robbie-Hodson collaboration is being developed separately from another “Pirates of the Caribbean” reboot that was unveiled in October with franchise veteran Ted Elliott and “Chernobyl” creator Craig Mazin hired to develop a story. Jerry Bruckheimer, who produced all five “Pirates” movies, is attached to produce both the Elliot/Mazin and the Robbie/Hodson projects. The previous “Pirates” movies, all starring Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow,
