THE GORSUCH NOMINATION: I REMEMBER MAMA

Posted on

The nomination of Neil Gorsuch to a seat on the Supreme Court brought to mind what happened 34 years ago, when his mother had to resign as EPA Administrator under President Reagan.  This followed a scandal involving mismanagement of the agency’s Superfund toxic waste funds, and Anne Gorsuch’s refusal to honor a congressional subpoena for […]

Last Friday, in his executive order suspending indefinitely the entry of Syrian refugees into the United States, Donald Trump claimed the move was intended “to keep radical Islamic terrorists out of the United States.”  This was yet another example of alt-facts being the new administration’s hallmark.  Every such act since 9/11 has been perpetrated by […]

According to the Hollywood trade paper Variety (Dec. 8, 2016), Donald Trump would remain as a paid executive producer of “Celebrity Apprentice” – the NBC game show he hosted for fourteen seasons that’s now returning with Arnold Schwarzenegger.  It was called “The Apprentice” during Trump’s reign, where the “candidates” from various business backgrounds lived communally in […]

MUZZLING THE EPA – AND EMPLOYEES FIGHTING BACK

Posted on

It began immediately after Trump’s inauguration, with taking down any mention of President Obama’s climate change plan from the White House website.  But the Orwellian effort to bury information from the people hasn’t stopped there. On Monday, the new administration put restrictions on EPA employees “effective immediately” to cease any communications with the public.  No […]

Posted on

At noon on Friday, the moment Donald Trump was sworn in, the page on the Obama administration’s White House website suddenly turned into a broken link.  “The requested page ‘/energy/climate-change’ could not be found,” the Google search said. Replacing the details about the global crisis and ways to do something about it was “An America […]
