South Australia Heatwave Wind Power Collapse, Rolling Blackouts

Calling the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist group would hurt all American Muslims
The Muslim Brotherhood was founded in Egypt in 1928 and sought to instill Islamic values into everyday life. It later evolved into a popular social and political organization and became Egypt’s leading opposition party. It has since inspired similar movements in countries such as Indonesia, Turkey, Jordan and Morocco. The Brotherhood disavowed violence long ago, and noted scholars have emphasized that it has fostered democratization and moderation in the Middle East. Two previous U.S. administrations concluded that it does not engage in terrorism, as did a recent report by the British government.
The US should emulate the British government?

NY Dems Respond to Trump by Passing ‘Sanctuary State’ Bill
New York State Democrats responded to President Trump’s threat to withhold federal funding from cities that harbor illegal immigrants by passing a bill through the assembly that would declare the state a “sanctuary state”.
The bill directs local law enforcement not to cooperate with federal authorities, except in cases of violent felonies, terrorism, or previous deportations, Eric Shawn reported.
Speaking on the Senate floor in Albany, Assemb. Francisco Moya (D-Queens) said the bill will reduce crime because it encourages illegal immigrants to report wrongdoing to the police.
A MANIAC IS RUNNING OUR FOREIGN POLICY! (IT’S NOT TRUMP)
In many parts of the country, you’re already not living in America. Just a few more years, and the transformation will be complete. There will be a North American landmass known as “the United States,” but it won’t be our country.
The only thing that stands between America and oblivion is a total immigration moratorium. We are well past the point of quick fixes — as Judge Robart’s delusional ruling proves.
Bill would allow victims to sue Virginia sanctuary cities
The bill designed to crack down on so-called sanctuary cities comes after President Donald Trump signed an executive order last month to strip funding from such communities. Conservative states across the country have considered a variety of anti-sanctuary city bills since the president’s order, while liberal states have moved to add protections for immigrants in the country illegally.
