Important news to pass along, everybody should already know about this, but if not, be advised of what is happening:
Silenced Federal Agencies Violating Their Own Policies
Trump Revives Keystone XL, Dakota Access Pipelines
Trump signs five more orders on pipelines, steel and environment
USDA Scientists Have Been Put On Lockdown Under Trump
Badlands National Park tweeted some climate change facts today. It didn’t end well.
Clearly (if you read the links), there is a rebellion developing against Trump’s concept of “free speech” and against science.
Hard to say how long it will last (not long if my personal experience is any indication). Most employees will submit to their management directors and shut up in fear of their jobs. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) already cancelled a major meeting of scientist and researchers scheduled for February.
But that’s within government – external to that, out here among the peons and piss-ants that Trump is taking a giant dump on, anger is growing. Rapidly.
Trump is an arrogant, stubborn fool of a man who will probably take his anti-science, anti-climate asinine attitude to the bleeding edge. People are going to die.
Not going to detail much on the news as I recently said – it is time to move on to much more important things. Things are bad, they’ll get worse, expect it, prepare for it. Do something about it. Bitching and whining online is however, pointless. I’ve done my fair share and then some.
I’ve no doubt we’ll be shocked at future developments. This is just the tip of the iceberg Trump intends to flood upon the low-lying peons he now lords over. Politico had an expose of sorts on who this man really is: a vindictive, rash, thin-skinned intemperate sod who is terribly ill-equipped for the job. He will seek to “win” at any cost, so expect that. He’ll sacrifice Jesus on the cross if it keeps him popular or advances his personal agenda. He also won’t listen to anyone but Jared and Ivanka (“Javanka”) so the country is going to be a family run business corporation from here on out. And everything is on sale (including you).
Some humor (give it a few moments to get to the English section):
Moving on is necessary because we’re stuck with this unfolding disaster. Grin and bear it, if you can.
The proposed and tried blog changes are being rolled back.
