Pelosi says House to vote this week on war powers resolution to limit Trump’s action on Iran – The Washington Post

Excerpt:

Pelosi said lawmakers were concerned that the Trump administration acted without consulting Congress and without respect for the constitutional authority Congress has to declare war.

She said the House would introduce and vote on a resolution similar to one that Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) introduced in the Senate last week.

“It reasserts Congress’s long-established oversight responsibilities by mandating that if no further Congressional action is taken, the Administration’s military hostilities with regard to Iran cease within 30 days,” Pelosi said.

Freshman Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D-Mich.),…

Sledding hill starts off the new year closed – WILX-TV

Excerpt:

LANSING, MI (WILX) — A popular snow tubing hill in south Lansing is starting the new year with a closed sign — due to the lack of snow.

“It’s been a battle trying to keep it up. We’ve taken everything we’ve made and pushed it together and, you know, made piles this time of year. You know, it’s been either hit or miss whether we’re going to make snow or not,” said Brian Collins, park manager of Hawk Island.

Drug pricing bill is a sneak peek at Democrats’ 2020 campaign message – STAT

Excerpt:

WASHINGTON — If Democrats are spoiling for a 2020 fight focused on anything besides impeaching President Trump, consider this week’s vote on a massive drug pricing package their opening salvo.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s “Lower Drug Costs Now” Act, a sweeping bill that pledges to lower consumer drug costs by 50%, includes ideas long touted by progressives in Washington: It would let Medicare directly negotiate the price of at least 50 drugs per year and it would cap U.S. drug payments based on costs in other developed countries.

It is hardly the bipartisan drug pricing…

Gentlemen, it’s now apparent from the impeachment investigation that President Trump must be removed from office, and quickly. You must do your job.

Rep. Rob Bishop, even though you aren’t running again, and the Democratic majority in the House will impeach with or without your vote, our tax dollars are still paying your salary and you must honor the oath you took to support the U.S. Constitution.

Trade deal presents political conundrum for Democrats – Virginia Mercury

A massive trade deal represents their best shot at showing they can do so — but passing it would hand Trump a major political victory as he heads into the election year. Blocking the deal, on the other hand, would also exact a heavy political toll. If Congress doesn’t ratify the “new NAFTA,” Democrats may not have a major legislative achievement to point to on the campaign trail next year — which could open them up to GOP charges of inaction and an “obsession” with impeachment.

If Republicans join in with climate alarmists, the party is doomed – Lifesite

Anxiety about global warming is skyrocketing in the Western world to the point one psychiatrist says, "I believe that everyone now has some climate anxiety." It's no wonder. Western leaders stoke the fires. On November 28, 2019, the European parliament declared a global climate emergency. Its members were responding in part to a children's crusade to save the planet. In March 2019, millions of children in over 120 countries skipped school to embark on what has become a series of "climate strikes." Young speakers raised alarming...

Michigan House Democrats say impeachment inquiry could end by Christmas – MLive.com

Two Michigan Democratic members of Congress are hopeful the ongoing impeachment inquiry could be wrapped up in time for Christmas. U.S. Reps. Dan Kildee, D-Flint, and Elissa Slotkin, D-Holly, discussed the inquiry with MLive before a scheduled forum at the Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce Thursday. Both said the inquiry, which seeks to determine whether President Donald Trump abused his power by soliciting a foreign government to investigate his top political rival, should be narrowly focused and move relatively quickly.

In the US, UMC’s Western Jurisdiction announces “safe harbour” for LGBTQ clergy – Sight Magazine

The bishops of the Western Jurisdiction of the United Methodist Church in the US have declared their churches a “safe harbour” for LGBTQ clergy. The Safe Harbor Declaration was announced Wednesday as United Methodists’ Council of Bishops wrapped up its autumn meeting in Lake Junaluska, North Carolina. And it comes months before new restrictions strengthening the denomination’s ban on the ordination and marriage of its LGBTQ members, which are set to take effect on 1st January. “We are haunted by the actions of the 2019 Special General Conference, which impose new and harmful definitions and restrictions on full participation of LGBTQ+ persons in the Church and abandon robust engagement of scripture to narrow biblical literalism,” the declaration stated. “We do not believe The United Methodist Church has the authority or the power to impose limits on the movement of God’s Holy Spirit in the lives of God’s beloved LGBTQ+ children.”

State lawmaker wants to ban 3D printed firearms – WNMU-FM

A state lawmaker says he wants to get ahead of technological improvements in 3D printing. A new bill would ban 3D printed firearms. It was introduced by Democratic Representative Abdullah Hammoud. He says the technology to print components of firearms and then assemble them with other parts into guns is still new and 3D printers are expensive, but they’ve gotten cheaper over the years. He says as technology improvements make the printers more accessible, the Legislature needs to think ahead.
