Monday Open Thread

Let’s keep the “alternative facts” to a minimum.

      1. My Main man Andrew!!!!  Glad you could join our fun game of posting pics & stats!!!!

        Clinton            Trump

        65,844,610        62,979,636


        You know what!!!  These 65,844,610 people that voted for Hillary can suck a big fat one.  Because we 62,979,636 people that voted for Trump won!!!!  BIGLY!!!!! 




            1. ACHole will always be the dutiful Good Nazi.  But the sad clown act of his is getting pretty old.  Sounds like standing up for, as Senator Gardner put it, the "Buffoon" is wearing him down.

              1. Andrew: your numbers are slightly off due to "faithless" electors. I believe there was a defection from Trump and at least 3 from Hillary.

  1. Keep in mind that Trump, consciously or not, sustains feuds over relatively inconsequential issues like the size of the inaugural crowds, which like a Three Card Monty Con game, distracts the audience's attention from his substantive actions.

    Such as:

    Trump revives funding ban to groups providing abortion overseas

    Abortion-right s group NARAL immediately issued a statement Monday condemning Trump's move. "It's telling that one of Trump's first executive actions combines two of his favorite things: silencing anyone who disagrees with him and repressing women," the group said. "With this action, Donald Trump has turned his anti-women rhetoric into policy, and made it more difficult for women and families all over the world to access vital reproductive care. He really is living up to the lowest of expectations.”

  2. For a guy and a party that abhors Executive Orders, they sure are getting off to a fast start:

    President Donald Trump signed a trio of executive orders on Monday that slash American aid to groups that provide or promote abortions overseas, withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership free-trade negotiations and put in place an immediate federal hiring freeze.

    Together, they put his biggest imprint yet on the federal government, offering something for three of his key constituencies: social conservatives (the abortion policy), fiscal conservatives (the hiring freeze) and his populist base (withdrawing from the Asian trade talks.).

  3. Aurora Sentinel calls Trump out for lies.



    New York Times headline calls it as it is: 

    With False Claims, Trump Attacks Media on Turnout and Intelligence Rift


    All just a part of the "Alternative Facts" philosophy of Comrade Conwayov.

    1. Wow. Just wow. If a city weekly goes off on him like this, the major dailies (what's left of them) are going to have endless fun. Expect him to try to shut them down and earn a smack-down from the Supreme Court. He's wasting no time demonstrating his ignorance of how this whole government thing really works. Good.

  4. Yes, this happened:

    2 different sources: The Hill: Trump reinstates ban on promoting abortion overseas.

    MSNBC: Surrounded by men, Trump takes aim at family planning policy.

    This is the "Mexico City" policy. Under Obama, organizations could provide information about how to obtain a legal abortion, even if the organization itself was not a provider. With the reinstated "gag rule", Trump makes it impossible to even provide that information. This will drastically increase unplanned pregnancies and women's deaths from clandestine abortions in third world countries.


    Trump Administration Imposes Freeze On EPA Grants and Contracts

    The Trump administration has imposed a freeze on grants and contracts by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, a move that could affect a significant part of the agency’s budget allocations and even threaten to disrupt core operations ranging from toxic cleanups to water quality testing, according to records and interviews.

    In one email exchange obtained by ProPublica on Monday, an EPA contracting officer concluded a note to a storm water management employee this way:

    “Right now we are in a holding pattern. The new EPA administration has asked that all contract and grant awards be temporarily suspended, effective immediately. Until we receive further clarification, this includes task orders and work assignments.”

    1. This is all part of The Great Orange Fools' promise to slash "regulation" in this country by 75%…..including the "fast tracking" of both the Keystone XL pipeline and the Dakota Access pipeline. With Harold Hamm and Rex Tillerson as two of his closest advisors and the knowledge that he is personally financially invested in the latter pipeline project, it is no surprise.
