Trump has taken 4 companies and applied his inventive policies to them and sent them bankrupt those companies greatest success was screwing the lives of the people who were involved with them. Trump merely walked away. Mind you I bet he took money out first and left the debt. Nothing has changed really. (ODT)
A senior Trump administration official has told Bloomberg News that the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy would see its $2.3 billion budget slashed by about 70 percent, to $700 million, under President Donald Trump’s fiscal 2020 budget request, which will be released on Monday.
Conservative groups like the Heritage Foundation have called for the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, to be eliminated entirely, saying energy innovation is best left up to the private sector.
The President started out the week with this uncharacteristically mild comment.
“I cooperate all the time with everybody,” he told reporters on Monday, when asked if he’d answer the committee’s requests.
He added that he thought the probe was “a political hoax”.
But as the chatter about the probe grew, so did his fury.
By Tuesday the Democrats were “stone cold crazy”.
Despite saying he’d cooperate, the President can and probably will flex his executive privilege to block access to some of these documents.
So, yep, another lengthy court battle is likely.
Just another step in a long and complicated process.
Simply put Australian Conservatives are Racing to be American and we aren’t far behind this Failed Democracy (ODT)
As we look at the news coming out of America (or the tweets from the President) we are aggrieved that the country is more than ever gripped in the claws of racism, and even worse, that of a white supremacist society. Chicago-based activist Karla Thomas tells us of a country that is “erroneously predicated on white as ‘good’ and black as ‘bad’.”
There is no denying that America is strung collectively tight. Marginalised people have had an extra-large orange boot stepping on their backs, and they are rightfully angry. Immigrants, African Americans, people with disabilities, women, Muslims, and Indigenous people speak out in frustration and the Right, wavering centre and the oh-so-woke but not really Left, are all muting, ignoring, or tone policing their anger respectively. We are at war. And in the centre of this cauldron, there are some very triggered white folks who are tired of people insinuating that their actions have anything what so ever to do with racism.
