Michael Moore: Dems have ‘no message, no plan, no leaders’

"Liberal activist Michael Moore lashed out at national Democrats on Wednesday after the party fell short in a special House runoff election in Georgia despite spending tens of millions of dollars on a race that was viewed as a referendum on President Trump."

"Moore and others on the left are furious with what they view as a rudderless Democratic Party that has failed to develop a new strategy or message in the wake of Hillary Clinton’s surprising election loss in November."

"Moore ripped the Democratic National Committee and its House campaign arm for having “no message, no plan, no leaders.” Democratic leaders “hate the resistance,” Moore said, underscoring the lingering tension between the party’s grassroots base and the establishment in Washington."

Google Maps: Sunset On June 23

Across most of New York State, tonight (June 23rd) is the latest sunset of the year. This is because while on June 22nd the sunrise has started to occur later (making the days about 15 seconds shorter), the evenings have kept picking up a handful of seconds. Today, that changes. Sunset tonight will be at 8:37 PM in Albany, and will start occurring about 4 seconds earlier on Saturday night, as we start the slow but continuous progress towards winter, and the shortest days of the year.

The latest sunset in New York tonight will be in the Town of Porter, Niagara County on Lake Ontario. There the sun will set at 8:59 PM. The earliest sunset will be at 8:24 PM in the Town of East Hampton, Suffolk County, which is commonly known the "Hamptons".

Happy Summer!
