Due to Ning (our Web hosting company) being bought recently from the ashes of Mode Media we often experience 500 connection errors. Our apologies but these errors are out of our control. Hopefully, this will improve as the new company gains experience. Regards, AU

Starbucks boss makes brilliant announcement in response to Donald Trump's refugee ban

The boss of Starbucks has responded to Donald Trump's 'Muslim ban' by promising to hire 10,000 refugees.

Howard Schultz wrote a lengthy message to employees and the wider world making a number of pledges in light of Trump's hardline stance on immigration.

"We have a long history of hiring young people looking for opportunities and a pathway to a new life around the world," he wrote.

"There are more than 65 million citizens of the world recognized as refugees by the United Nations, and we are developing plans to hire 10,000 of them over five years in the 75 countries around the world where Starbucks does business."

Schultz also went on to promise staff in the US that Starbucks will do its best to make sure they are not affected by other Trump policies such as cuts to Obamacare, the children of illegal immigrants and trade with Mexico.

President Trump has rejected claims his hardline immigration policy, which sparked chaos at US airports over the weekend, is a 'Muslim ban'.

The executive order he signed bans all refugees from entering the US for four months, and singled out Syrians as being barred indefinitely.

Immigrants from seven mainly-Muslim nations from the Middle East and Africa are barred from entering the US for 90 days while Trump's administration reviews security measures.

In a statement issued on Sunday, Trump said: "America is a proud nation of immigrants and we will continue to show compassion to those fleeing oppression, but we will do so wile protecting our own citizens and border.

"America has been the land of the free and home of the brave.

"We will keep it free and keep it safe, as the media knows, but refuses to say.

"My policy is similar to what President Obama did in 2011 when he banned visas for refugees from Iraq for six months."

"The seven countries named in the Executive Order are the same countries previously identified by the Obama administration as sources of terror.

"To be clear, this is not a Muslim ban, as the media is falsely reporting.

"This is not about religion - this is about terror and keeping our country safe.

"There are over 40 different countries worldwide that are majority Muslim that are not affected by this order

"We will again be issuing visas to all countries once we are sure we have reviewed and implemented the most secure policies over the next 90 days."

"I have tremendous feeling for the people involved in this horrific humanitarian crisis in Syria.

"My first priority will always be to protect and serve our country, but as President I will find ways to help all those who are suffering."

In New York, Washington and Boston, a second wave of demonstrations began on Sunday after spontaneous demos at airports on Saturday.

One of the largest of Sunday's protests took place at Battery Park in lower Manhattan, within sight of the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor, long a symbol of welcome to U.S. shores.

Christian Leaders Denounce Trump’s Plan to Favor Christian Refugees

Over the past decade, Christians in the United States have grown increasingly alarmed about the persecution of other Christians overseas, especially in the Middle East. With each priest kidnapped in Syria, each Christian family attacked in Iraq or each Coptic church bombed in Egypt, the clamor for action rose.

During the campaign, Donald J. Trump picked up on these fears, speaking frequently of Christians who were refused entry to the United States and beheaded by terrorists of the Islamic State: “If you’re a Christian, you have no chance,” he said in Ohio in November.

Now, President Trump has followed through on his campaign promise to rescue Christians who are suffering.

The executive order he signed on Friday gives preference to refugees who belong to a religious minority in their country, and have been persecuted for their religion.

The war on facts that Trump is waging is freightening. Will he manupilate the data from the Presidential investigation on voter fraud?

Alternative reality of laws? Black sites and torture come to mind. President Obama should have had the Attorneys General prosecute violators of torture law to prevent it from happening again.

G. W. Bush manipulated Global Warming Science.

Manipulation of Global Warming Science

NOTE: The following is one of a series of case studies produced by the Union of Concerned Scientists' Scientific Integrity Program between 2004 and 2010 to document the abuses highlighted in our 2004 report, Scientific Integrity in Policy Making.

Since taking office, the George W. Bush administration has consistently sought to undermine the view held by the vast majority of climate scientists that human-caused emissions of carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping gases are making a discernible contribution to global warming.1  Despite promises by the president that “my Administration’s climate change policy will be science-based,”2 the past several years have seen widespread political interference in the work of federal climate scientists, edits to official scientific documents and a general attempt to foster uncertainty about robust scientific conclusions.

After coming to office, the administration asked the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) to review the findings of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and provide further assessment of climate science’s “certainties and uncertainties.”3  In 2001 the NAS panel rendered a strong opinion affirming the conclusions of the IPCC and stating that “Greenhouse gases are accumulating in Earth's atmosphere as a result of human activities, causing surface air temperatures and subsurface ocean temperatures to rise.”4 

Also in 2001, President George W. Bush established the U.S. Climate Change Research Initiative (CCRI). One of the initiative’s two main priorities was to study “areas of uncertainty” in global climate change science.5

In May 2002, President Bush expressed disdain for a State Department report6 to the United Nations that pointed to a clear human role in the accumulation of heat-trapping gases and detailed the likely negative consequences of climate change; the president called it “a report put out by the bureaucracy.”7  In September 2002, the administration removed a section on climate change from the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) annual air pollution report,8 even though the climate issue had been discussed in the report in each of the preceding five years.

The American Geophysical Union (AGU), the world’s largest organization of earth scientists, released a strong statement in 2003 describing human-caused disruptions of Earth’s climate.9  “Human activities are increasingly altering the Earth's climate,” the AGU statement declared. Yet Bush administration spokespersons continued to contend that uncertainties in climate science were too great to warrant mandatory action to slow emissions.10

The War on Facts Is a War on Democracy

In a time when facts don’t matter, and science is being muzzled, American democracy is the real victim

There is a new incumbent in the White House, a new Congress has been sworn in, and scientists around the country are nervous as hell.

We’re nervous because there seems to be a seismic shift going on in Washington, D.C., and its relationship with facts, scientific reality, and objective truth has never been more strained.
