Shock Poll: Majority Of Americans Prefer Alien Abduction To 2nd Trump Term

Quote:
A Discord poll found an astounding 52% of those questioned would prefer to be abducted by extraterrestrials than endure four more years of a Donald Trump presidency. This staggering number remained almost as high when participants were reminded of the whole anal-probe thing (APT). The poll comes with a margin of error plus or minus 95% as Alex Bone was wrongly provided a corporate credit card during the Tucson survey, which took place at a brewpub during happy hour. Charges pending.

The same poll also suggests 100% of those surveyed believe Mr. Bone should not hold any position of authority in any organization, let alone have access to a corporate credit card. Meanwhile, space pioneers Elon Musk, Richard Branson and Jeff Bezos are all scrambling to provide cosmic retreats for liberals as a potentially safer alternative to the false promise of a new life in the Gamma quadrant by passing UFOs.

Trump tweeted, “Why go all the way to space when we can pick you up and perform experiments on you right here on our southern border? Cheaper! Closer!!”

TRUMP ADMINISTRATION ROLLS BACK GREENHOUSE GAS REGULATIONS SO FAR EVEN OIL COMPANIES OBJECT

Quote:
Just two days after President Donald Trump called himself an "environmentalist," his administration announced a rollback of methane gas emissions regulations so large that even oil companies are objecting to the change.

In the proposed rule change, released by the Environmental Protection Agency Thursday morning, the agency would end a federal regulation that requires gas and oil companies to use technology to inspect for and repair methane leaks in their infrastructure. This would leave large segments of the oil and gas industry entirely uncontrolled with no pollution limits. Methane emissions are known to cause climate change.

The administration estimates that the rollbacks will save the oil and gas industry $17 to 19 million a year.

But oil and gas bigwigs don't support the change. Susan Dio, the chairwoman and president of BP America, wrote an opinion piece for the Houston Chronicle in March where she claimed it was essential that the EPA regulate methane gasses.

"It's the right thing to do for the planet," she wrote. "The best way to help further reduce and ultimately eliminate methane emissions industry wide is through direct federal regulation of new and existing sources."

ExxonMobil wrote a letter to the EPA last year, asking them to keep methane regulations intact, and Gretchen Watkins, the U.S. chairwoman for Shell, said in March that the EPA should keep rules in place to regulate methane production.

A lot of these executives are focused on regulating future emissions of methane. That's because red tape, or regulatory rules, often work to benefit larger, long standing companies who have the money and infrastructure to abide by them. They work as a natural barrier to keep new upstarts out of the industry. These companies have already spent significant funds putting technology in place to lower their emissions and even more money convincing the American company that natural gas is a good, clean energy alternative.

The administration's new rule change could hurt the entire industry. "The reputation of American natural gas is at the precipice, and methane rollbacks are the shove," Ben Ratner, a senior director with the Environmental Defense Fund, told The New York Times.

But it's likely that smaller companies, however, will benefit, at least temporarily, from this particular rollback. Lee Fuller, executive vice president of the Independent Petroleum Association of America, told the Times that while it's easier for large companies to deal with federal regulations simply because they have the money to do so, ordinarily "for these small businesses, it's a very different economic impact." But the level-field and barriers to entry will now be a bit more even for companies who can't afford large infrastructure or technological changes.

"This proposal is a blatant attempt to give oil and gas companies yet another free pass to release as much harmful air pollution as they want while the public pays the price," Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune said in an emailed statement. The cost of climate change is expected to cost the U.S. about $224 billion more per year by 2090, according to Trump's own EPA.

Methane is the second largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S., after carbon dioxide. Methane makes up about 10 percent of all greenhouse emissions coming out of the country, but initially has about 86 times more power to trap heat in the atmosphere than CO₂.

The EPA rule change will be open to comment by the public and interested parties for 60 days before it's finalized.

Donald Trump said during a Monday press conference at the G7 summit in France that he was, "an environmentalist. A lot of people don't understand that." The president also said he knows "more about the environment than most people." In the past, the president has called climate change a hoax perpetrated by the Chinese. This is the seventh time the Trump administration has attempted to rollback regulations against oil and gas pollution.

Trump administration leaves menstruating migrant girls ‘bleeding through’ underwear at detention centres, lawsuit claims

Quote:
Migrant girls being held by the Trump administration are being given only very limited access to items as basic as sanitary pads and tampons, according to a lawsuit that claims to put fresh light on the “appalling” conditions being endured by youngsters.

Earlier this year, it was revealed children being held in facilities in Texas operated by immigration authorities, were being detained in circumstances United Nations (UN) human rights chief Michelle Bachelet said appalled her. Children were denied access to showers, adequate food or bedding, allegedly in breach of a 20-year ruling.

Now, in a lawsuit filed by 19 states, further details have been provided by some of those children, who told investigators they were held in rooms too small to sit down in, were repeatedly woken through the night by “roll calls”, and were made to fight for food that guards threw on the floor.

One young woman told lawyers from Washington state, that menstruating youngsters were permitted only one tampon, or sanitary pad, a day. After that, at least one girl “had no choice but to continue to wear her soiled underwear” and clothes.

Bob Ferguson, Washington’s attorney general, is among those behind the lawsuit filed in California. He claimed the immigration policies of Donald Trump were “reminiscent of shameful chapters in American history — the internment of Japanese Americans, and the forced separation of Native American families”.

Of the interviews with youngsters now living in the Pacific Northwest, Mr Ferguson said they revealed "appalling conditions at federal detention facilities.”

He added: “In addition to a lack of toothbrushes, soap or access to showers reported earlier in the media, the children reported extremely cramped cells, younger kids put in cages as punishment and guards throwing food on the ground for children to fight over.”

The lawsuit includes testimony by lawyer Alma Poletti, an investigator in Mr Ferguson’s civil rights division, who said one young woman who was having her period was only permitted to take a shower after 10 days.

Because the Trump supporters are the sadists. That’s what their “tears are delicious” catch phrase is all about. They genuinely derive pleasure from the misery of people they hate. And they hate so many people, like immigrants, gays, Muslims etc., the list is almost endless. . Hating people is a pleasure for them all on its own.

Trump creates tax break scheme for wealthy property developers like himself to push poor people out of their communities.

Trump cronies are getting rich off his ‘Opportunity Zone’ tax scam: report

By Bob BrighamAugust 31, 2019

President Donald Trump’s “multibillion-dollar tax break” known as opportunity zones are benefiting multiple people in the real estate developers orbit.

“The tax benefit allows people to delay paying taxes on profits from stocks or other investments for years. To qualify, they have to direct their untaxed gains into federally certified regions known as opportunity zones. Profits on those investments are then tax-free,” The New York Times reported Saturday.

“While some money is flowing to poor communities, the most visible impact so far has been to set off a feeding frenzy among the wealthiest Americans. They are poised to reap billions in untaxed profits on high-end apartment buildings and hotels in trendy neighborhoods, storage facilities that employ only a handful of workers or student housing in bustling college towns,” the newspaper noted.

Former White House press secretary Anthony Scaramucci is taking advantage of Opportunity Zones.

“The former White House communications director runs an investment company, SkyBridge Capital, that is using the opportunity-zone program to help build a new hotel, outfitted with an opulent restaurant and a rooftop pool, in the trendy Warehouse District of New Orleans,” The Times reported.

Senior White House advisor Jared Kushner is also profiting from the change in tax policy.

“Jared Kushner’s family company owns or is in the process of buying at least a dozen properties in New York, New Jersey and Florida that are in opportunity zones. That includes a pair in Miami, where Kushner Companies plans to build a 393-apartment luxury high rise with sweeping views of Biscayne Bay, according to a company presentation for potential investors,” the newspaper noted. “In addition, Cadre, an investment company co-founded by Mr. Kushner and his brother, Joshua, is raising hundreds of millions of dollars that it hopes to use on opportunity-zone projects.”

Former Gov. Chris Christie is also taking advantage.

“Mr. Christie, the former governor of New Jersey and a one-time adviser to Mr. Trump, has raised money for opportunity-zone investments, including an apartment building in Hackensack, N.J., and a self-storage center in Connecticut,” The Times noted.

And while Trump gives tax breaks to himself and his friends, his retarded trade policies effectively place a $1,000 annual sales tax on middle class Americans:

Hidden sales tax’: How Trump’s tariffs will impact prices — and what consumers can do about it

The U.S. decision to hike duties on Chinese goods will weigh heavily on consumers in the form of higher prices very soon.
For consumers, Labor Day sales may be a last chance to avoid the impact of tariffs on some products.

President Trump’s tariffs will make these things more expensive
In the midst of a tit-for-tat trade war between the U.S. and China, Labor Day sales may be your best chance to avoid the impact of higher prices for some products you buy.

Tariffs on goods traded between the two countries have already increased in several stages since early 2018 and recently escalated again.


Just last week, President Donald Trump said he would raise existing duties on $250 billion worth of Chinese products to 30% from 25% on Oct. 1. Additionally, he said, tariffs on another $300 billion of Chinese goods, which start to take effect on Sunday, will now be 15% instead of 10%.

“It is like a hidden sales tax, one that does not appear on your receipt but comes out of your pocket nonetheless,” said Katheryn Russ, a University of California, Davis, professor of economics and specialist in international trade.

As of the latest tally, the new tariffs will mean higher prices on many consumer staples, such as clothing, shoes, toys and household appliances, including toasters, coffee makers, irons, microwave ovens and hair dryers.

However, some goods originally set for increased levies in September, including cellphones, laptops, video game consoles and some footwear, will be delayed until mid-December to avoid dampening the Christmas shopping season.

“It is hard to predict exactly which goods will have the most noticeable price increases because retailers have said they plan to spread increases across other goods, as well, so that they generate less sticker shock for buyers,” Russ said.


“That doesn’t lessen the overall cost for consumers.”

The newest round of tariffs on Chinese goods could cost the average American household $1,000 a year, according to an estimate by J.P. Morgan....

Better hope it was, or else he tweeted a photo that confirms U.S. violation of Iranian airspace.

Either way he's a fucking idiot.

Spy satellite trackers think they've backtracked it to a specific satellite.

Trump is allowed to declassify whatever he wants, as he's proved before. But in doing so, he creates a lot of carnage.

Agree. Looks more like a long-range recon drone photo, or from a U2 spy plane, given the angle of the camera to the ground.

Satellites can be on angles too.
