Trump's Legal Troubles In New York State Dramatically Escalate

The Washington Post is reporting that Cy Vance, the Manhattan D.A., has retained forensic accounting specialists, FTI Consulting, to assist with their criminal investigation into Donald Trump’s business operations, specifically in relation his shady real estate deals.

Thus far, Donald Trump has avoided providing tax records or DNA in various cases under the excuse that he is “too busy being President”, but that excuse goes away on January 20, 2021 when he returns to being a regular citizen. He will have no job and no excuse for why he can’t show up for hearings or produce documents. And just a reminder, even if he pardons himself, it will only apply to FEDERAL crimes. Not state. So nothing he does can protect him from Cy Vance (Manhattan D.A.) or Letitia James (New York State A.G). And they are both coming for him.

According to news reports New Yorkers are leaving the city transporting with them the virus to other states, principally Florida. President Trump announced that he was considering locking New Yorkers in place but said he hoped not to do that.

Meanwhile, the Florida governor copying Trump’s indecision allows Florida with its large elderly population to fill up with likely virus carriers from New York.

We like the Australian People but not the Australian Government


Merkel adviser lashes Abbott’s ‘suicide strategy’ on coal

A lead adviser to German Chancellor Angela Merkel on climate policy has attacked Australia’s complacency on global warming and described the Abbott government’s championing of the coal industry as an economic “suicide strategy”.

He said calling for continued coal use was not only poor climate policy, it made little sense economically when the rest of the world was turning to renewable energy.

“China will soon come up to peak coal consumption,” he said.

“Other Asian economies might peak even sooner.

“It’s almost a suicide strategy for the Australian economy.”

His comments come after countries savaged Australia’s performance at a special climate summit of world leaders in New York last week, where US President Barack Obama said combatting global warming was a joint effort by all nations and “nobody gets a pass”.

Germany, one of the world’s biggest producers of wind energy, has set emissions cuts of 40 per cent on 1990 levels by 2020, although it is lagging behind this target.

It has also set targets of 55 per cent by 2030 and 80 per cent by 2050 – a goal that would require most of the country’s fossil-fuel energy stations to cease operating.

Professor Schellnhuber, who is also director of the Potsdam Institute, said it had been disappointing to see Australia’s retreat on climate policy after it became “the darling of the world” when Kevin Rudd ratified the Kyoto Protocol in 2007.

Asked about the reaction to Australia’s performance in New York, he said: “Everybody likes Australian people but nobody liked the Australian government there.”

Professor Schellnhuber said instead of backing away from policies such as Australia’s renewable energy target, the Abbott government should be exploiting Australia’s enviable position as the country with the “biggest potential” to produce renewable energy.

He said this was especially important when Australia was one of the continents most vulnerable to the effects of climate change, which would hit the country in the form of unprecedented heatwaves, fires and coral bleaching.

The Coal-ition is an open wound about to seep on our economy. Gina is begging for welfare.

The UN has told the coal industry that most of the world's coal reserves should be left in the ground.

Coal has no future in the world’s energy mix, UN warns, ahead of New York summit

The UN has warned that coal has no future in the world’s energy mix, as world leaders gather ahead of a major climate summit in New York.

The Federal Government says coal will serve as an affordable, dependable energy source for decades to come, but the UN’s climate chief has questioned whether that is in Australia’s best interests long-term.

“This is a question for which there is no simple answer … but to simply ignore the problem and hope that someone can continue with business as usual because one happens to sit on a mountain of coal or on a great deal of oil I think is ultimately not going to be the answer.”

Well at the moment in the Middle East oil access no longer guaranteed our dirty coal is no longer wanted. So why other than promises made is our government the only country in the world about to go like an Italian tank? 6 gears backwards? Hey Mr Abbott why are we subsidizing a dying business?
