Today Trump and EPA chief Andrew Wheeler signed off on a new rule which would make it easier for coal plants “to release into the atmosphere more mercury and other pollutants linked to developmental disorders and respiratory illnesses.”

This is awful news, but it gets worse. 1/

Acid rain.  Acid mother f**king rain.

Excellent op-ed about Pompeo on HuffPo. 

First, some background. Pompeo isn't stupid, but he's, you know, stupid.  He graduated first in his class at West Point, left the Army after five years with a rank of Captain, and graduated from Harvard Law.  He was head of CIA for a year-ish before Sec of State.

He was confirmed as Sec. of State by a relatively narrow margin (57–42) -- some Dems defaulted and voted yes.  He was a Tea-Party congressman from Kansas, is a climate change denier and Islamaphobe

The author of this opinion piece, Richard North Patterson, refers to Pompeo as Trump's global eunuch, among other things.  It's long, and primarily covers NATO, the Middle East and Korea. Worth a read if you want to get caught up on such things. 

Anyway, this op-ed lays out how Pompeo is flailing about as Sec. of State while sucking up to Trump, as one may guess from the title: Mike Pompeo Is The Spineless Personification Of Donald Trump’s Nihilist Foreign Policy

“Despite reports to the contrary and false narratives surrounding the Syria decision, we are not going anywhere,” State dept off’l.

Is State Dept referring to reports and false narratives direct from Trump's mouth to our ears?  Lordy, THERE ARE TAPES!

Pompeo heads to Mideast to stress 'US not going anywhere' http://almon.co/35lq  via @AlMonitor

Mattis is out as Sec. of Defense on Dec. 31, and Pompeo is dispatched on Jan 8 to try to keep the Middle East balance and military alliances Mattis originally put together re: Turkey, Kurdish Alliance w/ US in Syria, Saudi Arabia/MBS, Yemen cease fire, Iran, Israel, UAE, Qatar from falling apart.  Trump managed to fuck up and destabilize the entire US Middle East policy in a matter of days.

Bolton: Nothing to see here, move along. 

In other words, normal day in Trump administration: Trump steps on own dick, frantic scurrying ensues, PR damage repairs underway *something something* pearl clutching 'cause DEM MUSLIM  WOMAN refers to serial philadering pussy grabber as motherf***er,  other craziness gets traction, eclipses THAT craziness, and so it goes.  

I can't imagine what's going on right now on the ground in Syria -- with our troops trying to sort out WTAF US policy with the Kurds, who are realistically facing genocide from Erdogan.

Do you remember the alleged sonic attacks on the American embassy in Cuba and how we then heard crickets about it?

Now the Guardian is saying it might have been crickets.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/jan/06/sonic-attack-on-us-embassy-in-havana-could-have-been-crickets-say-scientists

So the embassy had bugs, literally.

Good thing nobody declared war over it.

Are they doing this on purpose or out of incompetence. One says do, one says don't, everything is fake news until it happens. Is it just gaslighting or does Trump forget what he told people to say yesterday

I swear, at this point sometimes I think Trump's response is based on which one of his BFFs he talked to last - Hannity or Putin.
