Missouri lawmakers send message to Eric Greitens: We dont need you

Missouri is in the midst of a grand experiment: How effectively can it operate without a governor?

Snip: As Greitens struggles to deal with multiple investigations on multiple fronts, the Missouri House and Senate have taken big steps on K-12 funding, higher education, early childhood education and highway funding.

In doing so, lawmakers have dismissed Greitens’ budget priorities out of hand time after time. It all adds up to an astonishing display of independence. The man’s who’s supposed to be the most powerful official in the state is routinely being ignored.

The General Assembly has been aided by its veteran leadership: Senate President Pro Tem Ron Richard ranks as the only man in state history to lead both the House and Senate. House Speaker Todd Richardson continues to command the respect of both Republicans and Democrats in a chamber long known more for its chaos than its order. That’s a considerable feat.

BEN CARSON, RETIRED BRAIN SURGEON, HAS LOBOTOMIZED HUD

Neurosurgery, one would assume, is a difficult task requiring intelligence, skill, and intense focus. But as former presidential candidate and current Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson recently declared, it is a positive cakewalk compared to working in Donald Trump’s White House.

“There are more complexities here than in brain surgery,” Carson told The New York Times in an interview, perhaps a lame excuse for what the Times revealed to be a morass of problems at HUD: steep cuts to both staffers and budget; a brewing ethics scandal over Carson’s furniture budget; and a president indifferent to both the mission of HUD and to the man he appointed to lead it, whom he reportedly considers a beta “winner,” not an aggressive “killer.”

The result, as the Times reports, is that Carson has been either unable or unwilling to secure the funds that HUD desperately needs to take care of the millions of low-income Americans who rely on public housing and other forms of assistance:

Shouldn't the president of the US have to pass an FBI security clearance?

Prosperity Gospel preacher Joel Osteen to open megachurch to Hurricane Harvey refugees after public

Source: Rawstory.com

Who says public shaming doesn’t work?

According to Crooks and Liars, Joel Osteen is singing a new tune after being blasted online for not allowing people into his church in the midst of Hurricane Harvey. He is now reportedly preparing to open the doors of his Lakewood Megachurch in Houston to people seeking refuge from the storm.

LGBTQ activist Charles Clymer posted an image of air mattresses in the Lakewood church, along with a caption that said the church is “prepping to open their doors.”

Earlier in the day, Raw Story reported that Osteen was blasted on Twitter for tweeting a call for prayers (and later, for attempting to raise money) for those affected by Harvey while keeping the doors to his church closed to people who need shelter.

Brazil to open up 860,000 acres of protected Amazon rainforest to logging, mining and farming

Source: Independent

The Brazilian environment ministry is proposing the release of 860,000 acres in the National Forest of Jamanxim for agricultural use, mining and logging.

The government’s order was a compromise measure after protests from local residents and ecologists who claim that the bill could lead to further deforestation in the Pará area.

If approved, the legislation will create a new protection area (APA) close to Novo Progresso. Around 27 percent of the national forest would be converted into an APA, the ministry said.

Carlos Xavier, president of a lobbying group in Pará to decrease the size of the Jamanxim forest, said the APA would bring economic progress to the region.
