1/24/17





tRump just can't get over the insecurity caused by Hilary Clinton winning the popular vote.  So again it becomes a big issue.  He brought it up at a dinner at the White House for congress leaders Of course he had to bring it up to Pelosi and Schumer, of all people along with a bunch of others.  Now those two are not going to be "yes" men.  He just had to say that millions of illegal people voted in the election - (if he repeats it enough times, some people will believe it.) he says that is why he lost the popular vote.  Of course, Pelosi had to correct him and he is still pouting.  All the news media got wind of it and it became a huge news story all day.

He needs to shut his mouth.


Spicer on lying- I believe sometimes we can disagree with the facts. (Facts are facts, anything else is NOT a fact.

At least Spicer said today that tRrump believes the illegal vote thing, (left it open that Spicer doesn't believe it.) and if tRump believes it, it must be true!

He ok'ed the finishing  of Keystone and the Dakota Access pipelines.  The Dakota Access pipelines cross the Missouri river twice.  This is farming land.  if there is a pipeline break it will not just affect all the people downstream but you and your children may end up eating corn, soybeans and wheat grown on contaminated ground.  Relatives of ours, normally very conservative, are concerned about this project.  They are farmers along the river and the river floods every few years.  If the river is contaminated it will not be able to be cleaned up. A flood will just bring the contaminated further onto the land.

tRump has ordered the departments that have any climate information to NOT publish it.
Orders EPA to not give out press updates or news conferences.  National Park Service employees have created a separate twitter account and on their own time they have decided to post there.

WASHINGTON — Congressional Republicans quietly closed a year-long investigation into Flint, Michigan’s crisis over lead in its drinking water, faulting both state officials and the Environmental Protection Agency for contamination that has affected nearly 100,000 residents.

Oh, well.  Tomorrow is supposed to be especially exciting.
