Everyone remembers that the EPA was trying to deal with mining wastes left by a mining company. The dam holding back the pollutants was breached by EPA workers in error, and it caused significant contamination.

It was accidental, but the GOP thought that reason enough to attack the EPA. Of course, they’ll attack the agency for simply existing, and today they decided to roll back regulations reducing coal mining pollutants of waterways.

You know, the kind of waterways that the GOP was just bitching the EPA polluted by their error in handling wastes that a mining company dumped.

Yeah, they’re hypocrites. It’s who they are and what they do. It’s all they have done last 30 years, but now they’re pushing the limits of credulity because there’s no one to stop them in government.

So, to all those miners who thought Trump would help them, here, have this glass of water from downstream from the mine you work at. Don’t worry. You won’t die from the contaminants in that water. You’re much more likely to die from the black lung you contracted because the GOP will soon get busy rolling back mining safety protections too. You know, jobs and corporate profits. Just not your job, and not your profits. Just the burdens.

On the one hand, I’m also glad that they are at least reachable and recognize the madness. On the other hand, I am still amazed that people voted for him thinking he’d be better once he became president; he’d been in the public eye for 30+ years and was always a choad. Beyond that, I have a very simple belief about politicians, if they say they’re going to do something, believe them until proven otherwise.

Last year’s leak was from an abandoned gold mine. First and foremost population in danger from that leak contaminated by heavy metals: The Navajo Nation. It probably all settled out in the Grand Canyon before reaching the water supplies of Las Vegas and Los Angeles. No worries.

President Trump’s White House has reportedly scrapped the previous administration’s plan to take Raqqa, the de facto capital of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria’s (ISIS) self-declared caliphate.

According to a report by The Washington Post, the Trump administration quickly dismissed the detailed plan established by President Obama and instructed Defense Secretary James Mattis alongside top Pentagon officials to present other strategic options within the next 30 days.

“They provided the information, but we found huge gaps in it,” a senior Trump administration official said. “It was poor staff work.”

Take that in, folks. Trump thought that the plan that led to the deaths of a Navy SEAL and 10 civilians was worth taking even though it had been raised and rejected by the Obama admin. BUT he canned the plan to take ISIS’ capital city because the plan came from the Obama admin.

A well-placed D.C. source says it’s no coincidence that President Trump’s anti-Muslim “travel ban” broke last Friday after senior presidential adviser Jared Kushner, an observant Jew, had checked out for the day. The situation is described by our spy as “a power struggle between two senior advisers” Kushner and former Breitbart chief, Steve Bannon.

“Everyone is working 24/7, but Jared, because of his religious views, not only can’t be in the White House, but can’t be on his phone, can’t drive his car, can’t listen to the radio — he can’t be reached,” says our whistleblower. Observant Jews are prohibited from working between sunset Friday and sunset Saturday.

We’re told that advisers sympathetic to Bannon, 63, have labeled Kushner, 36, “green” and “soft” and fear that his perceived timidity brings the President to a less hawkish place.

The Ninth Circuit is, by far, the largest Circuit in the country. There’s regular talk about breaking up the Circuit. I recall Scalia saying once that it wouldn’t work unless you split California - and from a practical stand point, I’m not sure how well that would work when there’s a circuit split between the two parts of California. Can’t imagine having different laws within one state would work well.

Am I reading too much into that “cartoon”? Seems to me that Spencer is threatening his detractors with future concentration camps with that “what goes around” quip.

It’s amazing that Twitter allows Nazi to promote their propaganda through its forum.

Twitter doesn’t care. As long as he isn’t threatening their income (or if they need an example to show they “Care”) he can do anything he wants because he brings clicks.

Seriously, click “more” and read the whole thing. Sane people lost because we didn’t know what we were up against. Let me repeat the money quotes (again, this info is from a woman who went undercover at a former young republican/support the orange fascist group):

The leader(s) then gave them an “action item” to find anything to dispute the no arrests report and to put pressure on the police to arrest protestors. Several people in the group admitted to being at the March to try to interfere, but felt they were bullied by the Marchers and had to stop “for their own safety” (actual quote). They questioned why so many people “got away with it” (Marching). It seemed to be a hot point with them.

They have a team who monitor the public blogs and event postings of the Liberal groups (specifically mentioned Indivisible and MoveOn.) They laughed at the Indivisible Guide when one leader said “the Liberals will never get organized and carry any of this out, the snowflakes give up too easily, a little heat and they melt”.

They have a team who spies on FB posts. When the man who was with us asked how to do it, he was told that if he was a member of Pantsuit Nation it’s almost an automatic in into most closed groups, and then once you are in one, you can get invited to others. Someone on their team joins all the public and open groups. Their report included reading a few actual posts, in a mimic whining voice, where the members were posting their concerns and frustrations and why bother. They actually cheered this. One leader applauded the report and said, “We don’t care if they like what we have to say, we don’t need them to agree with us. We just need them to give up, shut up and stay out of our way.”

So now that you know their sleazy tactics, you can come up with a way to combat them.

“It looks like the new U.S. representative at the UN came with remarks that were written by [Samantha] Power,” Pushkov said in a tweet.

“How can Russia be blamed when the [Ukrainian armed forces] are firing at Donbass?” he asked.

WiGOP is going to fight federal order to redraw districts.

GOP lawmakers to write blank check to hire lawyers

Republican lawmakers voted behind closed doors Thursday to give a blank check to hire two law firms — one of which routinely bills more than $800 an hour — in a legal battle over redrawing legislative maps.

The move will add to a bill that has already topped $2 million.
One of the firms the lawmakers hired is a high-powered legal operation where former U.S. Solicitor General Paul Clement is a partner.

Clement, who has Wisconsin roots, charges more than $1,300 an hour, according to published reports. Legislative aides would not say if Clement will be on the legal team they are assembling.

Republican legislators on two committees approved the plan even though they didn’t know how much hiring the firms will cost or even their hourly rates. Those details will be ironed out later, said Myranda Tanck, a spokeswoman for Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald (R-Juneau).

One of the recent ones was where the Rage Furby outed himself as a holocaust denier, again claimed he had direct ties to the Trump White House, among other unsavory activities.

Also, it is worth noting that the reason the forum was banned was because of their repeated posting of personal information, as well as advocating attacks (including acts of violence) on individuals and groups that opposed them (aka “Doxxing”).

I bet Trump is setting a new and unreachable record for the amount of face-palms, eye-rolls, side-eyes and other looks of exasperation, disbelief, or disapproval being displayed throughout the world when anyone hears his name, sees video, sees an image or just thinks about him.

I just hope he gets a true feeling for how many people already hate him, are beginning to hate him and will end up hating him.

For someone so needy it may lead him to lose it and bring a clearer need to get him out of office.

Exhibit # 5357 showing the Republican Party claim of being about “the will of the people” as an outright lie, and have no qualms whatsoever about spitting in the face of the voting public:

South Dakota GOP uses ‘emergency’ rules to repeal anti-corruption law

(CNN)South Dakota Republicans on Thursday repealed a historic anti-corruption law approved by voters in a statewide referendum on Election Day.

The measure, which passed with more than 51% backing in November, would have created an independent ethics commission, limited lobbyist gifts to lawmakers, banned officials from joining lobbying firms for two years after leaving office and created so-called “Democracy vouchers” for registered voters to steer toward their preferred candidates.
But state GOP lawmakers said they didn’t think voters knew what they were doing.
Gov. Dennis Daugaard, a Republican, signed the repeal bill on Thursday night. In a budget address delivered after the November referendum, he claimed the public had been “hoodwinked by scam artists who grossly misrepresented these proposed measures.”
Republican legislators pushed the bill using an “emergency” clause that allows for the reversal to take effect immediately and now prevents voters from initiating a new referendum campaign in response.

Today I heard a caller to sports talk radio suggest that we cannot be surprised by these things as being gay has become so much more acceptable in our society.

Fortunately, host Dan Bernstein cut the caller off and assured him that such idiocy won’t be entertained on his show.

Anyway…that is where we are at. High school students have been abused for a generation, and someone’s immediately reaction was to get on the radio to blame gay people.

It’s not like this is the first time a college has ever canceled a controversial speaker. What pisses me off is the right’s stone cold hypocrisy on this. The right is filled with people who literally think Joseph McCarthy was right to do what he did. But what is really frustrating me is how empathy seems to be lacking in a lot of today’s kids. It’s “humor” to act bigoted. As I said, I really don’t think any of those kids in Texas honestly believe in the tenets of Nazism but I do think there’s something disconcerting about how they think it’s actually funny to do Nazi salutes.

Here’s the thing about Pence: based on years of observation via my Hoosier relatives, he’s just not a very good politician. Sure, he’ll sign whatever odious crap gets to his desk, but he doesn’t have any perceptible charisma to sell any of it to the majority of Americans who aren’t already predisposed to buy into the hard-line Dominionist stuff.

Ask any Indiana business just how unpopular he made himself by the time Trump saved him from an ignominious re-election defeat.

Which is to say: if Trump is ousted before the 2018 midterms, Pence is exactly the Republican cold fish you’d want as the national standard-bearer for the party at a time when it’s trying to shore up support from disillusioned ex-Trumpsters.

And if a Trump ouster triggers a wave election that gives Democrats even one house of Congress, Pence is exactly the uncharismatic, uncompromising hard-ass who’d be unable to get anything at all through a divided Congress for what would be the last two years of a miserably unproductive half-term in the White House.

You don’t actually think Trump is familiar with the Constitution or cares about it? He’s accustomed to contracts he ignores — and the Constitution is just another contract to him. One with provisions he does not know or understand.

Try telling that to Iraqi Christians in Detroit and San Diego. Their hatred of Muslims is so intense that they can see clearly and logically on how this measure makes it even MORE difficult for their families back home.

Iraqi Christians have grievances with Muslims that predate King Faisal.

If you ever wonder why Assyrians/Chaldeans dislike Kurds, for example, the horrific massacre of them in Simele, Iraq by an Iraqi general of Kurdish descent was the reason why.

I had a few Chaldean friends when I was back in Detroit, and it was very interesting at the time of Gulf War I to see that even within that community there were disagreements when the war first started. As a matter of fact, during one conversation with a group of them one of their elders asked me “what if you were on the other side and we killed President Bush?”. I replied, “You serious? Do you want President Quayle?”

Yeah, but that was in 1933. Hussein stabilized the country (with an iron hand, to be sure), but protected minorities (Except for the Kurds. Boy, he hated the Kurds.) The crackdown on Iraqi Christians is directly attributable to our invasion of ‘03.

Good news: Republican representative called wife back over Muslim ban.
Bad news: Next village south in violation of Church-State separation again (time for another call),

Slightly long, and the call from our representative was hopeful.

So my wife called Rep. Adrian Smith’s (R-NE3) office two days ago and using her best domina persona overrode the staffer’s talking points to get her to listen that the EO banning people from certain countries and stripping green cards and arbitrary detentions endangers national security and threatens future alliances. She noted many people here in the Nebraska Outback are also concerned about this.

My wife told her she would call back and expect an answer. Mr. Smith’s office called us last night. The staffer ensured my wife she’d conveyed her concerns to him, and Mr. Smith has serious reservations over how this ban will be perceived by current and future allies. She thanked her for her input.

On the church-state issue, the Village of Dalton has signs on each end of town (US-385) on which they put messages.

Two years ago, the village put up an overt religious message (citing Bible verses) for Christmas. I called the village clerk and noted that such a post is a direct violation of the constitutional requirement of separation of church and state. Moreover, someone who is not a Christian might think twice about stopping in the village for groceries, restaurants, or gasoline if they feel the village is not welcoming. A day later the message came down and was replaced with a secular holiday message.

Well, today we went through Dalton on the way to Sidney, and they have a Bible verse and message of support for Donald Trump. (Dalton has a new village clerk.)

So I need to get on the phone to the new clerk and remind her about the I Amendment, and also note that travellers through town might not feel welcome with overt political support on a village billboard for a candidate they did not support (I am not sure whether such an endorsement is legal for a village board, so I will stay away from that argument.)

I will also note that we intended to stop and support the local market there with our cash, but instead it went to Safeway in Sidney today. (I don’t know whether it was my I Amendment protest or my one-man boycott last time that got the sign down.)

This is hardly an issue that needs the village’s office flooded with phone calls (they cannot be contacted through the Internet though they do have a Web page). The clerk knows who I am so a respectful but firm telephone call standing up for the Constitution should do it, as it did last time with the previous clerk.

Gotta keep at defending constitutional rights. There are always people everywhere that claim they support them but want a “special exception” for their personal hobby-horse to chip away at the edges.

My wife is hopeful that since Mr. Smith’s office called us back at home, she can call again and press on the issue of the National Security Council and its rearrangement (along with Mr. Steve Bannon placed on it.)

She intends to point out the makeup of the council is set in law, and thus a rearrangement of who is on it is illegal (citing the specific law in the US code).

(Mr. Smith’s offices automatically shunt me to dead air, which makes me think I am on disconnect before hearing.)

She also intends to convey the idea that the legislature is giving up its constitutional powers. She is concerned for him that he will be made irrelevant if he does not stand up for the US House’s independence.
