Sounds like they should build it out of ice blocks.
Or crystal meth, then nobody is going to bother catapulting 60 pound bags of heroin.

one of trump's less stupid people (tillerson) is discovering that, contrary to the dumb as fuck theory a lot of people have, being a successful businessman does not prepare you to work in government.  and that whether you know anything about government really does matter.

probably less that he's having a sudden realization and more that he realizes that Trump is in danger and he doesn't want to go down with the ship.

another case of trump saying "a lot of people don't know" when he means "I just learned"

The president has a great plan to bring back coal jobs. "Trump Wants to Steer UN Climate Cash to Building Coal Plants" | Bloomberg

Quote
The U.S. will seek to use a United Nations fund designed to aid nations hard hit by climate change to promote the construction of coal-fired power plants around the world.

The U.S. already donated $1 billion to the so-called Green Climate Fund, and it can now use its seat on that board to advance American-energy interests globally, a White House official said.

The official spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe climate negotiations at the just-concluded summit of Group of 20 leaders in Germany. A U.S. commitment to "work closely with other countries to help them access and use fossil fuels more cleanly and efficiently" was highlighted in a statement issued by the group last week.

What in the non-living god-damned fuck!

The White House just posted the emails of critics -- without censoring sensitive personal information

The WH just doxxed a bunch of people who sent them emails expressing concern about the election commission requesting sensitive voter information and planning to make it public.

Welp.

U.S. Customs and Border Patrol has begun preparations to construct the first leg of the Trump administration's border wall through the Santa Ana Wildlife Refuge in South Texas, according to the Texas Observer.

The Santa Ana Wildlife Refuge comprises 2,088-acres along the U.S.-Mexico border, and was established in 1943 for the protection of migratory birds. The refuge is home to at least 400 species of birds, 450 types of plants, and half of the butterfly species found in North America. It is also home to the highly-endangered ocelot.

Federal officials told the Texas Observer that the wall would consist of an 18-foot levee wall that would stretch for three miles in the wildlife refuge. The construction plan would require building a road south of the wall, as well as clearing land on either side. Such construction would "essentially destroy the refuge," an official told the Texas Observer.

Because of course a wildlife refuge is a great place to start.

I wonder if Canada and Mexico and various South American countries can sue the shit out of the US government for disrupting migration routes?

For at least six months, private contractors and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials have been quietly preparing to build the first piece of President Trump's border wall through the Santa Ana Wildlife Refuge in South Texas. The federally owned 2,088-acre refuge, often called the "crown jewel of the national wildlife refuge system," could see construction begin as early as January 2018, according to a federal official who has been involved in the planning but asked to remain anonymous.

"This should be public information," the official told the Observer. "There shouldn't be government officials meeting in secret just so they don't have to deal with the backlash. The public has the right to know about these plans."

Christ, just read the article. It's sickening. Wanton destruction.

When everybody was assembled, Trump reportedly shouted at Manafort, "How can anybody allow an article that says your campaign is all f---ed up?"

"You think you've gotta go on TV to talk to me? You treat me like a baby!" Trump added, according to Green's account of the meeting.

"Am I like a baby to you? I sit there like a little baby and watch TV and you talk to me? Am I a f---ing baby, Paul?" Trump reportedly continued.
"Marx and myself, one has fought harder all one's life long against the alleged Socialists than against anyone else"
