Floor Fight Erupts as Pelosi Speaks in Favor of Condemning Trump’s ‘Racist’ Tweets – GOP Rep. Doug Collins Challenges Pelosi in Stunning Rebuke

Republican Congressman Doug Collins (GA) challenged Speaker Pelosi on Tuesday as she spoke in favor of condemning Trump’s “racist” tweets from the House floor.

Rep. Collins demanded that Pelosi’s remarks be “taken down,” in an extraordinary rebuke of the House Speaker Tuesday afternoon.


Rep. Collins’ challenge to Pelosi was bold and was the first of its kind in decades — his rebuke of the Speaker could actually result in Pelosi being barred from speaking on the House floor for the rest of the day.

“There is no place anywhere for the president’s words, which are not only divisive, but dangerous and have legitimized and increased fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color,” Pelosi said. “It’s so sad because you would think that there would be a given that we would universally, in this body, just say, ‘Of course. Of course.'”

“There’s no excuse for any response to those words but a swift and strong unified condemnation. Every single member of this institution, Democratic and Republican, should join us in condemning the president’s racist tweets. To do anything less would be a shocking rejection of our values, and a shameful abdication of our oath of office to protect the American people. I urge a unanimous vote, and yield back the balance of my time,” Pelosi added.

Congressman Collins stood up and asked if Speaker Pelosi wanted to “rephrase that comment.”

“I have cleared my remarks with the parliamentarian before I read them,” Pelosi retorted as she walked away from the lectern.

“Can I ask the words be taken down? I make a point of order that the gentlewoman’s words are unparliamentary and be taken down,” Rep. Collins said.

Collins once again asked if to strike Pelosi’s comments.

Speaker Pelosi then left the House floor which is another violation of House Rules themselves when someone’s words are taken down, Fox News Congress reporter Chad Pergram said.

Pergram also reported that “Things have gotten really weird on the House floor Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO) was presiding over the House. And then he told the House he was trying to make a fair ruling about Pelosi but people weren’t cooperating so Cleaver then just said “I abandon the chair” and LEFT!”

What makes you think tonight is a "full blood moon" eclipse? It's just a normal partial eclipse. At least according to this:

Skywatchers wowed by the spectacular "blood moon" eclipse Sunday (Jan. 20) are probably asking, "When do we get an encore?" While the moon won't turn red again for several years, there will be several partial lunar eclipses in 2019 and 2020. Some parts of the planet may also experience solar eclipses or a "transit" of the sun by the planet Mercury, which is also technically an eclipse.
...​
The only other lunar eclipse of 2019 will take place on July 16, but North America will miss out on the show. This will be a partial eclipse, visible in South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia, according to NASA's website. Coincidentally, July 16 will also mark the 50th anniversary of the launch of Apollo 11, the first crewed mission to land on the moon.
...​
The long wait for another total blood moon eclipse will finally end on May 26, 2021, when Asia, Australia and the Pacific will get a beautiful view, according to another NASA web page. That eclipse will happen at moonset in the Americas, so there won't be very much to see there.
North and South America will finally see a blood moon again on May 16, 2022 (as will Europe and Africa). Helping to make up for the long wait, these regions will get a partial lunar eclipse a few months earlier, on Nov. 19, 2021. Australia and Asia will also see the partial eclipse.

ABC,

One thing we must consider is that she is breaking house rules,
without regard and without answering for it

This then sets a precedent, a dangerous one at that
People forget the reason for the decorum in the first place. The House (and to a lesser extent the Senate) are a microcosm of America and as goes the House - so goes the country. If the critters in the House cant get along and be civil with one another - it wont be long before the same is true for the country as a whole.

And when that happens...look out below...

Worked at a Somali Apartment complex today. The place is about 10 years old and trashed. There was trash on the playground and all over the place. While taking brake out by the van I saw a somali man cleaning out his car. He brushed all the trash onto the curb then drove away.

If these people can't take care of where they live, how will they ever help take care of this country. Oh by the way we all on this forum are paying for them to live there. Talking with the manager they get all sorts of tax breaks and what not from the government.

Of course according to our former Governor they are more welcome in this state than I am and if I don't like it I should leave. Almost getting to that point.

Everyone always bitches about Millennials and young not wanting to work. The question is why should we as there is starting to be no incentive? These are the people we are working hard for. People that can't even take care of where they live, in a place that we are paying for.

These are not Americans. These are not civilized people. Call me whatever you want, the fact remains these are not people who are compatible with traditional Americans and those same Americans better get off their asses and realize they're being defeated by invaders brought in by traitors from within their very homeland!

Scorp today was a very interesting day. Saw both ends of the spectrum.

I don't feel comfortable going into these apartments by myself. So, I told the shop I want the big Russan there with me.

We just got this new apprentice. He came over from Russia when he was 20. Learned the language and made a living picking up any construction job he could. Went to night school for HVAC and just graduated. Super polite and more than grateful to have a job that can support his family. I was just amazed at what he has done with his life. Instantly loved working with him.

Why are these guys not the immigrants we are praising.

I work in IT and love working with Russians here. In my experience, they're bright, focused, and friendly just about all the time. Yes, these are the type of immigrants who helped build America, not the brown invaders were seeing overwhelm our cities, sucking our precious resources and taking our votes away! Take note of who supports them and who enables them too! Pay attention!

Berkeley becomes first U.S. city to ban natural gas in new homes

By Sarah Ravani
Updated 5:10 pm PDT, Wednesday, July 17, 2019











Berkeley has become the first city in the nation to ban the installation of natural gas lines in new homes.

The City Council on Tuesday night unanimously voted to ban gas from new low-rise residential buildings starting Jan. 1.

Recommended Video




It’s not the first time Berkeley has passed pioneering health or environmental legislation. In 1977, Berkeley was the first in the country to ban smoking in restaurants and bars. In January the city banned single-use disposables, requiring restaurants to use to-go foodware that is compostable.

The natural gas ordinance, introduced by Councilwoman Kate Harrison, requires all new single-family homes, town homes and small apartment buildings to have electric infrastructure. After its passage, Harrison thanked the community and her colleagues “for making Berkeley the first city in California and the United States to prohibit natural gas infrastructure in new buildings.”





“It’s an enormous issue,” Harrison told The Chronicle. “We need to really tackle this. When we think about pollution and climate change issues, we tend to think about factories and cars, but all buildings are producing greenhouse gas.”

The city will include commercial buildings and larger residential structures as the state moves to develop regulations for those, officials said.

The ordinance allocates $273,341 per year for a two-year staff position in the Building and Safety Division within the city’s Department of Planning and Development. The employee will be responsible for implementing the ban.



Mayor Jesse Arreguín called the ordinance innovative and groundbreaking.

“I’m really proud to be on this City Council to adopt this groundbreaking ordinance. ... We know that the climate crisis is deepening and is having cataclysmic impacts,” he said at the meeting. “Warmer temperatures and the year-round fire season … the melting of the polar ice caps, growing sea level rise, all these conditions prove that we are in real trouble and that we have to take bold action now.”

California Energy Commission Chairman David Hochschild, a Berkeley resident, also spoke at the meeting and said that 50 cities across the state, including San Francisco, are considering similar action and Berkeley would pave the way for future legislation.



“That is how change happens,” Hochschild said at the meeting. “Right now, in California, we have a big focus on cleaning up the building sector because there are more emissions coming from combustion natural gas in our buildings than our entire state power plant fleet.”

The ordinance applies to buildings that have been reviewed by the California Energy Commission and determined to meet state requirements and regulations if they are electric only, said Ben Gould, the chairman of Berkeley’s Community Environmental Advisory Commission.

The way the ordinance is written, the city’s regulations will update as the state commission approves more building models without having to return to the City Council for a vote.

“We need to find ways to move forward innovative, groundbreaking climate policy,” said Gould, noting he spoke as a private citizen and not as a representative of the commission. “This policy is really important and critical. It helps address one of the largest sources of emissions in Berkeley.”

In 2009, the city adopted a Climate Action Plan that aimed to reduce emissions by 33% by 2020 and 80% by 2050. The plan also commits the city to using 100% renewable electricity by 2035.

In June 2018, the council declared a climate emergency and called for a review of Berkeley’s greenhouse emission reduction strategies. The city determined in a report last year that gas-related emissions have increased due to 18% population growth since 2000. The report also concluded that the burning of natural gas within city buildings accounted for 27% of Berkeley’s total greenhouse gas emissions in 2016.

“To put that in context, (the 27%) is equivalent to 20 million gallons of gasoline a year,” Harrison said.

As the city’s population soars, the need for more housing has also increased. From 2014 to 2017, the Planning Department approved building permits for 525 residential units, and 925 built units were approved for occupancy. More housing is expected, particularly with the Adeline Corridor Plan, which calls for the construction of 1,400 units along Adeline Street and a portion of South Shattuck Avenue.

Instead of having natural gas pipes, electric-only buildings install heat pumps and induction cooking, Gould said.

“Think about a refrigerator and how it makes inside your refrigerator cold and blows hot air out of somewhere else,” Gould said. “A heat pump works like that, but in reverse. It takes outside air and emits cold air outside and provides hot air inside. They can also be flipped in reverse and work as an air conditioner.”

Induction cooking transfers heat directly to any magnetic cookware, including cast iron and steel, without using radiation.

“It transfers heat right to the pot,” Gould said. “It boils water faster than anything else that exists. It’s very even, very quick to respond.”

At Tuesday’s meeting, Harrison’s staff demonstrated the use of an induction cooktop by making chocolate fondue. The staff placed a piece of paper between the stove and the pot to show its safety features. The pot turned hot but the paper didn’t burn, Gould said.

Nearly 40 people spoke at the Council meeting Tuesday in support of the ordinance. Tom Lent, a Berkeley resident, said he changed his gas stove to an electric cooktop about three years ago.

“Cooking with induction is really fun,” Lent said during public comment. “It’s so fast, it’s so controllable. I will never go back to gas again.”

Kristin Davis, the co-owner of KC’s BBQ in Berkeley, said she prefers using a gas stove over an electric cooktop.

“I just prefer an open flame,” Davis said. “I don’t think there is a huge difference in the taste, but I do think the taste is a little more enhanced over an open flame.”

Davis said she is concerned that installing electric equipment in new restaurants could be a financial burden for small businesses.

Harrison acknowledged that electric appliances might be more expensive, but she said the use of electric equipment is cost-effective in the long term.

“Electricity on an ongoing basis will be less expensive,” she said.

The ordinance restricts developers applying for land-use permits from building anything that includes gas infrastructure, including gas piping to heat water, space and food.

Accessory dwelling units — built-in basements or attics of existing homes — are exempt from the ordinance. A public interest exemption may also be allowed if the council or the Zoning Adjustments Board determines that use of natural gas is necessary.
