Brock Long: US emergency management chief resigns

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-47234227
13 February 2019

US Federal Emergency Management Agency chief Brock Long has announced his resignation, the latest senior name to leave the Donald Trump administration.
In the post since June 2017, he has led the response to several extreme natural disasters, including the heavily criticised operation in Puerto Rico after a devastating hurricane.
Mr Long was also involved in a row over the use of government resources.
In a statement, he said it was "time for me to go home to my family".


Today Trump is saying he will declare an emergency so he can divert funds to build his nonsense wall.

So, I wonder if these are related and if itís because Trumpís newest plan is a step too far for even the lousy leader of FEMA that Long was.

Trumpís people have been floating the idea of using the emergency declaration to grab necessary funding away from California and Puerto Rico for months now. I keep thinking that trying to take punitive actions against the areas that support him the least is one of the main things he is attempting with the bogus emergency declaration.

Thoughts?

Harris scores big CBC endorsement in Barbara Lee

https://www.cnn.com/2019/02/14/politics/kamala-harris-barbara-lee-cbc/index.html

Washington (CNN)Kamala Harris just picked up her biggest endorsement to date in her fledgling 2020 campaign: Congresswoman Barbara Lee, former Congressional Black Caucus chair and all-around anti-war and social justice activist star.

Lee, who has been called "the House's lefty conscience" will be California co-chair of Harris' presidential campaign.

"Watching Kamala's career in the East Bay and San Francisco for 20 years, I've witnessed her deep passion for justice and opportunity and I know she will be a president truly of the people, by the people, and for the people," Lee said in a statement obtained exclusively by CNN.

~~~
With her endorsement, Lee becomes the first CBC member to weigh in on the Democratic primary, a contest that for the first time includes two CBC members -- Harris and Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey.
