It would be interesting to have a translation of the spoken commentary. Any volunteers?

The New York Times - Major Climate Change Rules the Trump Administration Is Reversing

 

Aug. 29, 2019

 


The move to rescind environmental rules governing emissions of methane, a powerful greenhouse gas, brings to 84 the total number of environmental rules that the Trump administration has worked to repeal.

 

Officials at the White House, the Environmental Protection Agency and other agencies have called the regulations burdensome to the fossil fuel industry and other businesses.

 

Half of those environmental rollback attempts, like the new methane reversal, will undercut efforts by previous administrations to reduce emissions and fight climate change.

 

Many of these efforts have been challenged in the courts; whether the administration will succeed in achieving all of its goals is far from certain.

 

Here are some of the most significant climate-related reversals:

 

[subject headings only]

 

  • Leaving the Paris climate agreement
  • Weakening methane regulation
  • Freezing fuel efficiency standards
  • Eliminating the Clean Power Plan
  • Promoting drilling on public lands
  • Helping offshore drillers
  • Boosting fossil fuel companies by weakening protections for endangered species

The Washington Post - A Fox host’s tirade against Trump exposes depths of the president’s corruption

 

Opinion

 

August 31, 2019

 


For days now, President Trump has been embroiled in a public feud of sorts with Fox News, because he’s angry that the network isn’t functioning dutifully enough as his 24/7 propaganda channel. ...

 

On Thursday night, Fox’s Neil Cavuto unleashed a lengthy rebuke to Trump. In it, Cavuto pointedly noted: “Mr. President, we don’t work for you.”

 

This was a response to Trump’s rage-tweet excoriating the network: “We have to start looking for a new News Outlet. Fox isn’t working for us anymore!”

 

Trump is angry, Cavuto argued, because on occasion Fox doesn’t sufficiently whitewash his failures and lies. ...

 

Trump expects and demands that Fox News hew to this propagandistic narrative entirely. 

 

But, even more to the point, he publicly and unabashedly tells his supporters that he expects and demands it. ...

 

Trump’s unabashed and open assertion of impunity is a central feature of his corruption. 

 

This public flaunting of that corruption - of our governing institutions and discourse alike - compounds it and makes it all the more corrosive.

Space to be 'next war-fighting domain', says Donald Trump

Guardian News

Donald Trump has said the newly formed US Space Command will 'defend America's vital interests in space, the next war-fighting domain'.

Creating a new military branch still requires congressional approval and the matter has met with skepticism from both Democrats and Republicans

The Washington Post - Bolton sidelined from Afghanistan policy as his standing with Trump falters

 

August 31, 2019

 


As the president’s top aides prepared for a high-stakes meeting on the future of Afghanistan earlier this month, one senior official was not on the original invite list - national security adviser John Bolton.

 

The attendance of the top security aide would normally be critical, but the omission was no mistake, senior U.S. officials said.

 

Bolton, who has long advocated an expansive military presence around the world, has become a staunch internal foe of an emerging peace deal aimed at ending America’s longest war.

 

His opposition to the diplomatic effort in Afghanistan has irritated President Trump, and led aides to leave the National Security Council out of sensitive discussions about the agreement. ...

 

 

... and another one bites the dust   😕

Some great lipsticks from "Lipslut."

“F*ck Trump” shade.

“F*ck Kavanaugh” (named for the newest U.S. Supreme Court Justice, Brett “I Like Beer” Kavanaugh)

“Notorious R.B.G.” (a tribute to Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg)

“Leftylibglobalistsantifacommiesocialisthollyweirdopigs,” from an internet troll’s insult.
