Tillerson Wastes No Time: State Department Rewrites Climate Change Page
EcoWatch - ?5 hours ago?
The Environmental Data and Governance Initiative (EDGI), which has been monitoring changes to federal websites ever since Donald Trump took office, noted significant new changes to the State Department's climate change website.

Anyone got a list of their gas station brand names etc

I'm sure we can put a dent in their cash flow.

Declare the last election null and void

after drumph is impeached or before. I don't care which sequence happens.

HRC should be appointed POTUS as she clearly would have won but for all the interference.

Great report on Nunes from MJ


Rep. Devin Nunes is the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee charged with investigating the possible collusion between Donald Trump’s campaign and state-sponsored Russian hackers working to disrupt the 2016 election and western democracy as a whole. Many have questioned whether Nunes should be involved with the investigation in light of the fact that he was a key executive member of Trump's transition team. The other members of that small team include Dr. Ben Carson, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Newt Gingrich, Rudy Giuliani, Governor Chris Christie and the now disgraced Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn. Several members of that elite team were rewarded for their loyalty to Trump, two were named to cabinet positions. Nunes must’ve been a highly regarded member of the inner circle to be tapped by Trump for that role.

And here we find ourselves with Nunes leading the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and an enemy state. Instead of grilling FBI Director for information on possible collusion, Nunes and the other Republicans on the committee repeatedly used their time to question Director Comey about who leaked the news Lt. Gen. Flynn and AG Jeff Sessions had repeated contact with the Russians. Not interested in the collusion with an enemy state, only interested in who leaked—even going so far as suggesting reporters who published the information should potentially face charges. Seriously.

How can we rely on "under investigation" when there are so many lies and diversions?

Independent enquiries are the last hope.

To trump voters: So you were against the ACA but thought it was different from Obamacare

Yet you were OK with Bush costing us trillions in a war and the housing bubble.

The total cost of the ACA would be a great deal less than that terrible war.

Now the deranged orange ignoramus is running up millions each time he plas golf.

And he may well start another war just out of spite.

I fear that peaceful protests will not remove drumph

But we have no other recourse given the GOP implicated in drumph's every "policy" and EO. They will never stop this lunatic - look at what he's grafted already. The costs ae staggering. He's a criminal.

The SCOTUS will be biased and fail to uphold rights except "religious freedom" BS

Some glimmer of hope?


A few details:

Unlike the rest of the country, Houston Democrats had a full-scale Republican rout to celebrate. The party had swept the polls in Harris County, the vast region encompassing Houston, arguably the nation’s most diverse city (as locals never tire of repeating). With 4.5 million inhabitants, the county is more populous than half the states in America. Now Harris voters had elected a Democratic district attorney — a very powerful post in Texas law enforcement — for the first time in thirty-six years. The Democrats had also captured almost every other slot on the ballot, including the tax assessor’s office, which oversees voter registration: a crucial win in an age of Republican voter suppression.
