Wasn't Tillerson CondiLIAR's boss in a previous time?

I see her sucking up - who does she think she's fooling?

How many DUers have read

The Constitution of Imperium by Ronnie D. Lipschutz

What movie will best describe the rise and fall of

Groper Don the Con?

For the record Groper Don the Con knows more than sixteen

intelligence agencies, all the generals, and every other person who ever practiced politics.


He "don't" need no fuggin' briefings from anyone.

Never forget that Groper Don the Con asked Russia to hack Hillary's email

and now he disses the Intelligence Agencies

That fucker has no legitimacy - how ironic

Love you Jane Fonda -a sexist boy in a bully pulpit who is missing an opportunity to be

an eco-hero'.

The screen legend and activist Jane Fonda said she’s prepared to do “whatever I need to do” to counter a Donald Trump administration, and called the president-elect a sexist “boy in a bully pulpit” who is missing an opportunity to be an eco-hero.

The actor let loose on Trump’s choice to head the Environmental Protection Agency, the global-warming skeptic Scott Pruitt, and called the pick her “greatest fear” about the incoming administration.

A self-confessed late bloomer as a feminist, Fonda also predicted that women’s rights “are going to come under incredible attack” at the federal and state level in the aftermath of the Trump election victory.

But she chose the environment when asked to name her biggest worry about a Trump White House in an interview with the Guardian.

“We are confronted by someone who is against the very existence of the agency he’s being put in charge of. There are many dangers with Trump but the difference here is that we have no time. The tipping point for climate change is looming,” Fonda said.

Hey Thomas Roberts- you just repeated Groper DOn the Con's lie

about the CIA, Iraq and WMDs - you really are an uninformed hack or a deliberate LIAR.

Why is Dick Cheney so quiet

I can't help but believe that he is pulling the strings from the crypt. His silence is disturbing.

Autumn 2016: Warmest in U.S. Weather History -Bob Henson, Weather Underground

The autumn of 2016 was the warmest ever observed in records going back to 1895 for the 48 contiguous U.S. states, according to data released on Wednesday by NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI). The nation’s average September-to-November temperature of 57.63°F was a full 1.05°F above the previous autumn record, set way back in 1963, and it was 4.08°F above the 20th-century average (see Figure 1). The record-setting margin of more than 1°F is a hefty one for a temperature record that spans an entire season and a landmass as large as the 48 contiguous states. For comparison, the second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh-warmest U.S. autumns are all clustered within 1°F of each other, as are the six coldest autumns on record.

Pushing this past autumn to the top of the temperature pack were the third-warmest October and third-warmest November on record, along with the ninth-warmest September. Eight states along a swath from New Mexico to Michigan saw their warmest autumn on record, and every contiguous state except for California, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington had a top-ten warmest autumn (see Figure 2).

Quarter of inmates could have been spared prison without risk, study says

A quarter of the US prison population, about 364,000 inmates, could have been spared imprisonment without meaningfully threatening public safety or increasing crime, according to a new study.

Analyzing offender data on roughly 1.5 million US prisoners, researchers from the Brennan Center for Justice concluded that for one in four, drug treatment, community service, probation or a fine would have been a more effective sentence than incarceration.
Obama made progress on criminal justice reform. Will it survive the next president?

“The current sentencing regime was largely a knee-jerk reaction to crime, not grounded in any scientific rationale,” said Inimai Chettiar, director of the justice program. “While it may have seemed like a reasonable approach to protect the public, a comprehensive examination of the data proves it is ineffective at that task.”

The study also concluded that another 14% of incarcerated individuals had already served an appropriate sentence. These people could be released within the next year “with little risk to public safety”, the researchers said. Combined, these two populations represent 39% of the current incarcerated public.
