President Donald Trump “didn’t really care” about opening up the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) to oil drilling until a friend of his in the industry asked him to, he said during a speech Thursday.

Speaking to Republicans at the party’s annual retreat in West Virginia, Trump said he was convinced to put a provision in his tax bill that would open up part of the wildlife refuge to oil and gas companies after one phone call with a friend “who’s in that world and in that business.”

Recounting the phone call, Trump told lawmakers: “He said, Ronald Reagan, and every president, has wanted to get ANWR approved. And after that, I said, oh, make sure that’s in the bill. It was amazing how that had an impact, that had a very big impact on me… I really didn’t care about it and then when I heard that everybody wanted it, for 40 years they’d been trying to get it approved, I said make sure you don’t lose ANWR.”

At least in academia you can hold intelliogent conversations with your co-workers, as opposed to the inane drivel that passes for conversation at a corporate gig or at a large law firm (both of which I have suffered through)

Lol. I was just fucking with ya. Ballsy to put your job title up online though. Careful with that.

Yeah, I’m sure your setting is a better on than most bullshit corporate office gigs. I’ve been there too.

Anyway, academia in general is preferable to right-wing America in general, but I’m not sure why we’d be comparing the two. Two completely different kinds of hell.

This is so off-topic, I’m very sorry.
Who said there are bigger fish to fry? Because that person was right.

Come on, don’t use quotes like that. They just spread the mythos at this point. What’s he doing? Taking some credit for something nobody else could do. I refuse to entertain that shit anymore.

We all know he’s a nihilist and a miscreant and a malcontent and basically a fat version of Gollum from Lord of the Rings, but his narcissism is not worth inflating. Too many people like the smell of it.

But that is gross. Jesus fuck.

Just sent this message to the Foreign Ministry of Poland:

I am an American, partly of Polish heritage, who is disappointed to hear of a new bill making its way through parliament making it a felony to make reference to "Polish Death Camps" during the Second World War. I am concerned that such a law would deter open academic discourse concerning the Polish and European history of that period.

The Deep State reopened the Clinton e-mail probe 11 days before the 2016 election at the exact same time they were planting fake evidence that Trump's campaign was working with Russian government to get elected.

It is now clear that the Deep State was trying to get Jill Stein elected.

With US forces clearly overcommited abroad, imperial overreach appears to be reaching new heights, along with the US level of hypocrisy.

Yesterday I received an email newsletter that contains a piece entitled Major American-Israeli military drill to take place next week, which includes the following:

"Next week, a major military drill will be conducted across Israel by IDF and American troops. The exercise simulates massive simultaneous rocket attacks from the southern and northern fronts and comes at a time when the tensions between Israel and Hezbollah are relatively high."

The same newsletter contains Iran accuses US of destabilizing Middle East, spreading extremism, which, in turn, contains the passage:

"He [CIA Director Mike Pompeo] then spoke out against the Iranian regime and voiced his support for additional anti-government protests across the country: “I hope that they [the Iranians] will rise up and understand that it is not the best interests of their country to send forces to places like Europe as proxies to try and conduct malign activity in Europe when there's so much that can be done to make Iran a better place.”"

I sure wish these guys would listen to themselves and take their own advice.

from SPLC's week end email

In his State of the Union address this week, President Trump congratulated his administration for having “taken historic actions to protect religious liberty.”
It certainly was historic in October when Trump became the first sitting president to give the keynote address at an annual summit hosted by an anti-LGBT hate group, the Family Research Council.
And it was historic when his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, issued religious freedom guidance eroding protections for LGBT people after he consulted with another anti-LGBT hate group, the Alliance Defending Freedom.
But it was an anti-immigrant hate group, the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), whose talking points laced the State of the Union address this week.
CIS presents itself as an independent think tank, but it began as a project of the anti-immigrant hate group Federation for American Immigration Reform and was founded by white nationalist John Tanton.
CIS frequently manipulates its findings to achieve results that further its anti-immigrant agenda. Last fall, for instance, CIS staffer Jessica Vaughn published a report exaggerating how many people would enter America via a process that CIS calls “chain migration” — the hate group’s preferred phrase to stigmatize the idea of immigrant families reuniting.
The phrase “chain migration” appeared twice in this week’s State of the Union, alongside dangerous and hateful misinformation about immigrants taken directly from CIS talking points.
Given the State of the Union’s author, that should be no surprise.
Senior adviser Stephen Miller, who took the lead writing the speech, served for years as an aide to Jeff Sessions, who has himself endorsed CIS’ work, spoken on a CIS panel, and taken whispered counsel from a former CIS staffer during immigration debates on the Senate floor.
When Sessions hired Miller fresh from Duke University, he did so at the recommendation of anti-Muslim extremist David Horowitz. Now in the White House, Miller has been claimed and praised by extremists for advocating policy on hate group wish lists and pushing anti-immigrant narratives like the one we heard in the State of the Union.
“For decades, open borders have allowed drugs and gangs to pour into our most vulnerable communities. They have allowed millions of low-wage workers to compete for jobs and wages against the poorest Americans,” Trump said Tuesday, reading Miller’s text off a teleprompter.
But studies consistently show that immigrants help — not hurt — the U.S. economy.
“Most tragically, they have caused the loss of many innocent lives,” Trump said Tuesday — despite study after study finding immigrants commit crime at rates lower than native-born Americans, not higher.
Hate groups should not have a seat at the table on matters of national policy or influence what talking points to highlight in the State of the Union.
But thanks to Stephen Miller, they have exactly that.

Who says they have to? We’re full steam ahead into a corporate plutocracy here. The government has been purchased, and things like ethics and legality are becoming increasingly blurry and meaningless.

Keith Oberman gave a great little rant about this back when Citizens United passed. I think it as the inspiration for the that show the Newsroom, but I’m not positive. Anyway, it’s scary how accurate his prediction was.

It seems my musing on an earlier post has been confirmed by observation:

College Students Oppose Obama Remarks When Told They're From Trump

Did college students give President Trump's State of the Union address a fair chance? Campus Reform's Cabot Phillips talked to students at New York City's John Jay College, reading them quotes from Trump's address. What the students didn't know was that the lines were actually taken from some of former President Barack Obama's addresses. The students were given quotes (from Obama) about going after ISIS and countering China on trade. But most were opposed to the ideas when they thought they were coming from Trump."He doesn't think before speaking," one responded. "The way he approaches things is very aggressive," another argued."He should mind his own business and focus on America," a student said. Phillips said on "Fox & Friends" it appears many students are just "committed" to being against Trump no matter what. "They were quite shocked [when told the quotes were from Obama]," he explained, recalling one student even threatened to beat him up. Phillips previously discussed the State of the Union address with NYU students, who came out against the speech even though it hadn't happened yet. He said students face consequences on liberal-leaning campuses if they support Trump, including socially, in the classroom and even through violence."Students should be able to have a discussion about what the issues are and not feel pressured one way or the other," said Phillips.
