Black Millennials and Political Power Black Lives Matter protests at Democratic events made one thing very clear: Next year the Democratic Party will need to focus on young, black millennials. These voters came out in record numbers for the 2008 election, but this election could be very different. With the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson and other unarmed black men nationwide, the Black Lives Matter movement has emerged as a political powerhouse, but what will that mean at the polls?
Gov. Jerry Brown: California and China will fight climate change together President Donald Trump reportedly wants the U.S. to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord, and he’s expected to announce a decision soon. California Governor Jerry Brown heads to China to strengthen climate and clean energy ties.

Why is Trump so behind on filling staff jobs, establishing concrete policies? Yesterday Donald Trump signed a “decision memo” to revamp the air traffic control system.

And hundreds of positions are unfilled in federal agencies.
