The Paris Agreement was signed in 2016 within the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, dealing with greenhouse-gas-emissions mitigation, adaptation, and finance.

POTUS has begun to withdraw the United States from the Paris Agreement. This is the first formal step in a one-year process to exit the global pact to fight climate change. However, defying Trump, American governors who represent over half the U.S. population pledge to uphold the Paris climate agreement.

Do you remember the playground jerk who would say things like - I know you are but what am I? Trump loves to throw attacks back at any accuser, even if it does not make sense.

Whose words are that of a ten-year-old; his grasp on how the world turns is about a five-year-old: and his behavior that of a failing 73-year-old? Tell Congress, this is precisely the real reason why America has the 25th amendment.

Is Donald Trump beginning an angry month with a crazy news conference and his tweet storm which reached another low with increased attacks on the press?

POTUS mental fitness becomes a conversation for conservatives, as an impeachment inquiry from liberal Democrats and challenges from political combatants are getting through to millions of swing voters who are sick and tired of Trump.
The crazier he gets, the more the pressure will rise on US Congress and the American public to do something serious about it.

But will they be able to move forward? The highest-paid group of public servants has so far managed to perfect the phrase government inaction and is returning to work. The question Americans should be asking is what are you going to do for me this time around?

After a lengthy vacation, US Congress is finally back in session and there is much to digest on the collective plate.

Do you support or oppose the Bill? Let your US Representative know how you feel -

S. 1494, the Secure and Protect Act of 2019 does not resolve the current humanitarian crisis at the border; instead, it would foreclose lifesaving protection and subject children as young as toddlers to prolonged and harmful incarceration. Even worse, the bill fails to address the root causes of the problems leading so many to flee in the first instance.

How can any problems be fixed, improved or changed if a person on the top does not read or listen because he thinks he's smarter than anyone else? #VoxPop Who calls himself a very stable genius? How many real geniuses call themselves that? Think Einstein, Gates, Hawking, genius... none of these guys ever felt compelled to tell others that. They did not say they were.

Has POTUS been on a permanent vacation since the inauguration? If so then Congress feels it’s OKAY to stay away from DC for their summer holiday. Although, if you ask me, neither party has earned a degree or one day of paid break.

Meanwhile, there have been multiple #GOP retirements of lawmakers recently, some have served in Congress for over a decade or more. What’s really going on in our nation’s Capitol?
