I don't agree with ending it, but there should be an endgame for people in the program, like you know, citizenship.

Yeah, but Draven (and Michael Moore) says he's going to smoothly win reelection, so what's the point of these "bombshells"?

For decades both parties have used and abused the issue of illegal immigration for their own purposes. And instead of holding our elected officials accountable for abusing their position of power on the matter, we (collectively) direct our anger and attention to the powerless who came to this country (illegally) because of the wink-and-a-nod given to them by those same politicians.

Electing Trump was just icing on that cake. Electing Hillary would've added sprinkles to that same cake.

AGREED. There are no "bombshells"'with Trump anymore. He's already done pretty much the worst things he could do and he's still President. I mean for fuck's sake, he was advertising his hats during Harvey appearances. Obama would have been torn to shreds for the equivalent. And that's minor when it comes to Trump.

"I never thought leopards would eat my face!" cries the woman who voted for the Leopards Eating People's Faces Party.

When ICE Came for the Chaldeans

Michigan’s Chaldean Christians escaped persecution in Iraq and helped Donald Trump win the presidency. Now, they’re at risk of deportation.

That's not a nine point swing. Gallup's margin of error is ±3 percentage points. That means he went from somewhere between 31% and 37% approval to somewhere between 35% and 41%. In other words, there's as much of a chance his actual approval dropped two percentage points in that period as it increased ten.

Instead of saying "You're right, we need to get to those toxic sites", the EPA attacks AP journalists and links to Breitbart in official press release. You cannot make this shit up.

On Saturday, Associated Press journalists Jason Dearen and Michael Biesecker reported at least five toxic, Houston-area Superfund sites in the path of Hurricane Harvey had been deluged with floodwater, potentially distributing the assorted nasty things contained within across a much larger geographical area. The AP report noted while its reporters were able to access the sites via boat, the Environmental Protection Agency was not on scene, and did not provide a timeline for when its staff would be able to visit them.

Now the EPA, which is under the control of Donald Trump appointee and longtime EPA hater Scott Pruitt, has fired back with one of the administration’s favorite tactics: smearing the messenger. In an extraordinary statement that appeared on the agency’s website on Sunday, the EPA called the AP report “misleading” and attacked Biesecker’s “audacity” and credibility.

“Here’s the truth: through aerial imaging, EPA has already conducted initial assessments at 41 Superfund sites—28 of those sites show no damage, and 13 have experienced flooding,” the EPA wrote.

Notably, the EPA tried to bury that its “initial assessment” was conducted with “aerial images,” not actual on-site assessments, and that the agency had failed to visit at least 11 possibly storm-damaged Superfund sites as of Saturday. That is completely in line with the original AP report.


“Administrator Pruitt already visited Southeast Texas and is in constant contact with local, state and county officials,” the statement continued. “And EPA, has a team of experts imbedded with other local, state and federal authorities, on the ground responding to Harvey - none of which Biesecker included in his story.”

“Unfortunately, the Associated Press’ Michael Biesecker has a history of not letting the facts get in the way of his story,” the EPA continued. “Earlier this summer, he made-up a meeting that Administrator Pruitt had, and then deliberately discarded information that refuted his inaccurate story—ultimately prompting a nation-wide correction. Additionally, the Oklahoman took him to task for sensationalized reporting.”

(Biesecker did not make up the story, which is that Pruitt met with Dow CEO Andrew Liveris before deciding not to ban Dow’s chlorpyrifos pesticide, but instead issued a correction regarding the length of said meeting.)

In a followup statement, EPA Associate Administrator Liz Bowman claimed the AP was “once again” attempting to “mislead Americans” by “cherry-picking facts,” and slammed the report as “yellow journalism.” The statement also links to far-right website Breitbart, one of the president’s favorite websites.

Since the EPA did not actually contest any of the facts in the AP article, this looks an awful lot like petty retaliation against journalists for having the temerity to report on things like the EPA’s response to an environmental catastrophe—or any number of other things, like Pruitt’s extremely sketchy ties to the climate change denial movement, war on environmental science or plans to eliminate huge numbers of EPA staff.

Going after reporters might please the big, stupid and extremely petty man in the Oval Office. But that’s precisely because responding to bad publicity by doubling down and smearing critics is the way a child would handle things. Never mind the toxic waste potentially spread all around Houston—a bunch of Trump appointees’ egos are the real victims here.

Update, 7:40pm: On Sunday evening, the original statement on the EPA website became inaccessible. Though the timing appeared to correlate with a temporary outage of the entire EPA website, when the website came back online minutes later, the statement still read “Page Not Found (Restricted).”

Obviously, removing the statement from the website—if indeed that is what happened, rather than a technical error—would do nothing to mask the fact the EPA wrote it in the first place. An archived version of the statement is available here.

Update, September 4th, 2:40pm: The statement is again visible on the EPA website.

re: The Official Trump Presidency Thread: Tillerson: "Trump's a Moron"

NPR made a nicely detailed article of September's agenda:

Must pass:
  1. Keep the government running
  2. Avoid the first-ever default
  3. Begin Hurricane Harvey relief efforts
  4. Renew the National Flood Insurance Program
  5. Renew children's health care (wow I didn't even know this was in trouble)
  6. Face reality on health care
Other
  • Approve the annual defense authorization bill
  • "Republicans also still need to pass a budget resolution that outlines the broad contours of what they aim to do on the tax code."
  • Immigration legislation
  • The Wall... I guess
Looks like September is going to be even more of a fire than July was. And this is not even accounting for any external events.

Why are you asking us? He said it. Why don't you ask him for the list.

Or are you one of those "Trump whisper's" that can instantly tell what he really meant despite his own chosen purposeful words?

Either way, it's not exactly a great defense of Trump. "He's not a pussy grabber, he's a LIAR!"

People are finding way too much significance in the fact that his locker room talk coincidentally described him getting away with something he'd previously been accused of and gotten away with.

So DACA going to be rescinded, back to congress to fix it/make it better with heart!

Trump is doing all the things he said he would do, but not actually being accountable to them, he will blame congress

Yeah, now Trump's going to be angry when budget/infrastructure/tax reform discussions get bogged down because Congress now has to deal with this DACA nightmare he created.

"DACA nightmare" which Trump totally created. None of this needed to be handled like he chose to handle it. And it he was too scared to announce it himself so he made Sessions do it. So Presidential I could swoon.
