Robert Murray, CEO of Murray Energy Corp, is a climate denier, and a coal advocate.

He wants Trump to use emergency order to stop coal and nuclear plants closures.

However Murray admitted in an interview that "clean coal" doesn't exist.

https://www.eenews.net/stories/1060056858

...Murray yesterday commended President Trump's announcement that he would try to boost some coal exports, but he said that ultimately what the sector needs is for EPA to nix the endangerment finding.

Perry also has touted carbon capture and sequestration technologies for coal plants, even as he questions whether climate science is settled.

Murray said carbon capture won't help, either.

"Carbon capture and sequestration does not work. It's a pseudonym for 'no coal,'" Murray said while waiting for a ride outside DOE headquarters. "It is neither practical nor economic, carbon capture and sequestration. It is just cover for the politicians, both Republicans and Democrats that say, 'Look what I did for coal,' knowing all the time that it doesn't help coal at all."

Murray acknowledged that the legal fight over the endangerment finding would be "tough." He thinks that's because climate activists and renewable power producers want to keep making money off climate change.

"All these people will be jumping on this on the other side because it's all about money, but it is not about America. America needs reliable, low-cost electricity, and that is a mix of different fuels," he said.

Murray also wants Perry to use emergency authority to stop coal and nuclear plant closures, although lawyers have said that is unlikely to happen

Still, Murray, who is close with the president, said he thinks Trump would be "receptive" to the idea.

New York Times

‘She’s Not My Type’: Accused Again of Sexual Assault, Trump Resorts to Old Insult

E. Jean Carroll, a columnist for Elle magazine, said in a CNN interview on Monday that she fought back when Donald Trump sexually assaulted her in a Bergdorf Goodman fitting room.

By Peter Baker and Neil Vigdor

President Trump on Monday again denied assaulting a columnist for Elle magazine in the dressing room of a high-end clothing store more than 20 years ago, countering her explosive accusation by asserting that he would not have assaulted her because “she’s not my type.”

Mr. Trump said that E. Jean Carroll, who wrote for years for Elle magazine, was “lying” when she said that he threw her up against a wall and forced himself on her in the mid-1990s, and he insisted that he did not know her.

“I’ll say it with great respect,” he said in an interview with The Hill, a Capitol Hill news organization. “No. 1, she’s not my type. No. 2, it never happened. It never happened, O.K.?”

Earlier Monday, Ms. Carroll spoke about an excerpt from her new book — “What Do We Need Men For?” — that was published in New York magazine. She said in an interview on CNN that Mr. Trump threw her up against a wall so hard that “I hit my head really hard: boom.” She said that she tried to fight back against Mr. Trump’s violent advances in a fitting room of Bergdorf Goodman in Manhattan.

In the Hill interview, Mr. Trump said Ms. Carroll was making up the story. “Totally lying. I don’t know anything about her,” he said. “I know nothing about this woman. I know nothing about her. She is — it’s just a terrible thing that people can make statements like that.”

Mr. Trump in the past has rejected other sexual assault accusations by asserting that the women who accused him of taking advantage of them were not attractive enough to engage in such behavior.

“Believe me, she would not be my first choice, that I can tell you,” Trump told supporters at a campaign event in 2016 after a woman accused him of putting his hand up her skirt while on an airplane. “You don’t know. That would not be my first choice.” As the crowd laughed, he said, “Check out her Facebook, you’ll understand.”

The fitting room episode took place in late 1995 or early 1996, according to Ms. Carroll, who said Monday that Mr. Trump asked her to model lingerie that he was looking to purchase. At the time, Mr. Trump was married to Marla Maples.

“The minute he closed that door, I was banged up against the wall,” Ms. Carroll said during an appearance on “New Day” with Alisyn Camerota. “I want women to know that I did not stand there. I did not freeze. I was not paralyzed, which is a reaction I could have had because it was so shocking. No, I fought.”

Ms. Carroll said the release in October 2016 of the “Access Hollywood” video in which Mr. Trump boasted of sexual assault to the television host Billy Bush was validation for her. CNN played the 2005 clip during Ms. Carroll’s appearance on Monday.

“It knocked me back; I felt relief,” Ms. Carroll said. “We have to change this culture of sexual violence.”

More than a dozen women have accused Mr. Trump of sexual misconduct that they said took place before he was elected president.

“It’s the same,” Ms. Carroll said. “He denies it. He turns it around. He attacks and then he threatens. I am sick of it. Think how many women have come forward. Nothing happens.”

Ms. Carroll, 75, stopped short of using the word “rape” on Monday to characterize the episode, which she said in the New York magazine excerpt that she disclosed to two friends at the time. One urged her to report it to the police, while a journalist friend warned her to keep quiet because Mr. Trump would “bury you.” The New York Times spoke to the two friends, who confirmed that Ms. Carroll had spoken about it with them but said they did not want to be identified.

“I have difficulty with the word,” Ms. Carroll, the author of “Ask E. Jean” in Elle, said Monday. “I see it as a fight. He pulled down my tights. It was over very quickly. It was against my will 100 percent.”

American pays US$ 775/night for each kid in a concentration camp (no other name for it). And they don't have toobrushes or soap, sleep on the floor and have nights on all day and night.

 

As the old saying goes, follow the money. Oh, and the racists.

The New York Times - The Story Behind the Photo of Two Migrants Found Dead in the Rio Grande

 

 

June 25, 2019

 


Crossing the Rio Grande has long been one of the many deadly hurdles migrants face as they try to enter the United States.

 

A photograph published online Monday by a Mexican newspaper, La Jornada, served as a jarring reminder of the journey’s perils: the bodies of a man and his 23-month-old daughter floating face down on the banks near Brownsville, Tex.

 

The girl is tucked under his shirt, her arm wrapped around his neck.

 

The photograph drew widespread attention as an image of yet another death along the border at a time when migrants, particularly families from Central America, have arrived in increasing numbers. ...

 

[La Jornada] identified the migrants in the photograph as Óscar Alberto Martínez Ramírez and his daughter Valeria, from El Salvador.

 

Mr. Martínez’s wife told La Jornada that they had been waiting at a camp in Matamoros, on the Mexican side of a bridge that connects the city to Brownsville, for two months to present their asylum claims to United States officials.

 

On Sunday, they decided to cross the river on their own.

 

Mr. Martínez had taken his daughter in his arms, crossed the river and put her on dry land. When Mr. Martínez went back for his wife, Valeria jumped into the water.

 

When he tried to rescue her, both were pulled under. ...

This is obscene. Although I am not religious, I hope there is a hell and I hope that Trump and his evil enablers burn in it. America should hang its head in shame, if it still has any left.

Hell? The right-wing supporters, mainly evangelicals and new christians, are so far removed from Christ's teaching that these people don't have the moral level to tell anyone about anything anymore.

Wrong god, the USA worships the almighty dollar now. This is why they don't get upset when civilians are killed by the Saudis bombing Yemen, the US got paid lot of money so they are happy to ignore the war crimes.

The New York Times - Reopened Legal Challenge to Census Citizenship Question Throws Case Into Chaos

 

June 25, 2019

 


The battle over whether to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census was thrown into turmoil on Tuesday, just as the Supreme Court was expected to issue a ruling on the dispute this week.

 

By allowing a district judge to reopen a case related to the origin of the question, a federal appeals court raised the prospect that the federal government might be unable to meet a deadline for completing census questionnaires that include it, regardless of the Supreme Court’s ruling.

 

New hearings in the reopened case would stretch well beyond July 1, which is the deadline for printing the questionnaire and other forms. The Census Bureau has said that meeting that deadline is essential to conducting the national head count on time.

 

The case had appeared to be on a fast track to a resolution - until documents on the computer backups of a deceased Republican strategist, Thomas B. Hofeller, emerged last month.

 

Those documents revealed new details about the genesis of the question, casting additional doubt on the Trump administration’s rationale for asking 2020 census respondents whether they are citizens.

 

In a 2-to-1 ruling on Tuesday, the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit halted its review of a decision in two Maryland lawsuits challenging the citizenship question and returned the case to United States District Judge George J. Hazel.

 

The judge had asked last week to reopen the case so that Mr. Hofeller’s newly discovered files could be factored into his ruling. ...
