The Daily Word in Victory at Standing Rock, Fire in Oakland, and the Cost of Protecting Donald Trump

The Daily Word

In a historic decision, the Army Corps of Engineers prevented further construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline on Sunday afternoon. The Corps denied the pipeline a legal easement required to drill under the Missouri River, saying that an environment impact assessment was needed before the Energy Transfer Partners could put an oil pipeline beneath the Standing Rock Sioux tribe's only source of drinking water. Finally, something to celebrate. (Not that Trump couldn't legally reverse this decision once he's in office.)

President-Elect Trump has tapped Dr. Ben Carson for Secretary of Housing and Urban Development. This despite the fact that Carson said he would not seek a cabinet position, since he has literally no government experience. So, you know. I'm sure that'll pan out well.

Tragedy in Oakland–my old home–on Friday night, when the Ghost Ship warehouse-turned-art-space burned down during a dance party. At least 36 people are confirmed dead.

The murder trial for the police shooting of Walter Scott, an unarmed Black man, is still deadlocked. Michael Slager, the police officer on trial, was recorded laughing immediately after he shot the man, who was running away from him.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio has asked the federal government for $35 million to cover the cost of protecting Donald Trump and his family until inauguration day.
