Koch brothers' network launches new super PAC

Source: CNN

(CNN)Americans for Prosperity, the sprawling Koch political network, announced Monday the launch of a new super PAC arm as the organization gears up for the final stretch of the 2018 midterms.

The new super PAC was described as "a new tool to build broad policy coalitions in Congress to help advance AFP's vision," which "will advocate for candidates who share our commitment to breaking internal and external barriers that prevent people from realizing their full potential."
The super PAC, called "AFP Action," will operate independently of the network's preexisting 501(c)(4) nonprofit and with some key advantages.
Per campaign finance laws, the new group will be able to spend unlimited sums on election activities while being subject to some loose disclosure requirements, The nonprofit arm, however, is subject to even looser disclosure requirements but must dedicate a portion of their spending to "social welfare" activities that cannot explicitly target elections.

Fahrenheit 11/9: first trailer for Michael Moore's Trump documentary

The first trailer for Michael Moore’s Donald Trump documentary Fahrenheit 11/9 has been released, promising an incendiary look at modern life in America.

The Oscar-winning film-maker has been focusing on the effect of the president in an attempt to shift public perception before November. “I’m finishing my movie and getting it out before the midterms because I want millions of people to get to the polls,” he said to Bill Maher in June. “We’re going to bring Trump down.”

In the first footage from the film, we see Moore speak to Parkland student and activist David Hogg and rising Democratic star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The Bowling for Columbine director is also seen spraying “Flint water” into the front yard of Rick Snyder, the governor of Michigan.

Moore goes on to describe Trump as “the last president of the United States”. The title is a reference to the day that he won the election.
In an interview with HuffPost, Moore describes Trump as an “evil genius” and speaks to the potential power of his new film.

“On opening weekend, Fahrenheit 9/11 was the number one movie in every red state in the country,” he says in reference to his award-winning documentary. “It was a hit in military towns and on military bases. My choir is the American people. The old guard of the Democratic party has failed to speak to them. I will at least give them a song they can belt out.”

Before we fall for the crocodile tears over CNN's fight with tRump

We must not forget, Big Media gave trump much more airtime than any other candidate, they created this monster and the reason is, tRump is great for profits! Their money making clown was really IT



Trump received $1.9 billion in free, or “earned,” media coverage, yet spent just $10 million on paid advertisements during the last election cycle, far more free media coverage than Sec. Clinton at $746 million, and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, at $321 million.

Animals, crops suffering as Europe's heatwave hits new highs

Source: bostonherald.com/

BERLIN — The heatwave gripping large stretches of Europe has already been blamed for deadly forest fires and crop failures. Now freshwater fish could be its next victims.
Some regions in Germany sweltered as the mercury hit 39 degrees Celsius (102 F,) and the German Meteorological Office said the country's all-time record of 40.3 Celsius (104.5 Fahrenheit) could be topped Tuesday.

Rivers like the Rhine and the Elbe have soaked up so much heat that fish are beginning to suffocate.
"I'm expecting a tragedy as soon as next week," Philipp Sicher from the Swiss Fishery Association told German news agency dpa.
In Hamburg, authorities collected almost five metric tons (11,000 pounds) of dead fish from ponds over the weekend, dpa reported. Firefighters have started pumping fresh water into some ponds and lakes in a bid to raise oxygen levels.

Scientists say the record heat seen in Europe but also North America and parts of Asia this year points to the influence of man-made climate change , and could become more common in future.
Several of Germany's nuclear power stations are reducing energy output because rivers used to cool the power plants are too warm.

Supreme Court Decision Delivers Blow To Workers' Rights

Source: NPR

In a case involving the rights of tens of millions of private-sector employees, the U.S. Supreme Court, by a 5-4 vote margin, delivered a major blow to workers, ruling for the first time that workers may not band together to challenge violations of federal labor laws.
Writing for the majority, Justice Neil Gorsuch said that the 1925 Federal Arbitration Act trumps the National Labor Relations Act and that employees who sign employment agreements to arbitrate claims must do so on an individual basis — and may not band together to enforce claims of wage and hour violations.
