  • July 21, 2017 | You’re fucking up America, it truly is your fault, it’s not politics as usual, and when the shit hits the fan, you’re on your own. You are why we can’t have nice things. You don’t need “elitist liberals” and their fancy “civil rights” and “government protections.” You’re winners. You win bigly.

  • Their conflicts of interest are not just unfair and unethical, but potentially dangerous.
  • Nepotism is something more closely associated with dictatorships or puppet regimes, but it’s now been accepted with a shrug by Republicans as just how the Trump administration does business.



Donald Trump’s war on journalism has begun. But journalists are not his main target …

  • [Snowden] fled because if you are indicted under the Espionage Act, as he was, you are not allowed to present a public-interest defense — meaning, you are not allowed to justify the crime of leaking by arguing it was done to disclose to the public even greater crimes the government was committing.

June 5, 2017 | Wars are rarely announced in advance, but President Trump provided an abundance of warning about his intention to wage an assault on journalism. During the election campaign, he called journalists an “enemy of the people” and described media organizations he didn’t like as “fake news.” You can pretty much draw a direct line between his words and the actions we’ve seen lately — which include journalists physically prevented from asking questions of officials, arrested when trying to do so, and in a now-famous example from Montana, body-slammed to the ground by a Republican candidate who didn’t want to discuss his party’s position on healthcare.

This is most likely a prelude. From virtually the moment Trump took the oath of office, a deluge of irritating leaks has poured forth about, for instance, his private complaints against senior aides and his late night habits when he is upstairs at the White House without a tweet-blocking retinue of aides. Matters of crucial substance have also been leaked, such as his own disclosure of highly classified information to Russia’s foreign minister, and his obstruction-of-justice-worthy request to James Comey that the FBI restrain its investigation of Michael Flynn. Just a few days ago, there was another leak that wasn’t even Trump-centric, disclosing information about the British investigation into the suicide bombing in Manchester. Peter Maass has written about war, media, and national security for The New York Times Magazine, The New Yorker, and The Washington Post. He reported on both civilians and combatants during the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Elliott Negin, Union of Concerned Scientists / Huffington Post you can follow Evergreene Digest on Twitter. | During his nationally televised speech before Congress on Tuesday night, President Trump vowed to “promote clean air and clean water.”

Is that right, Mr. President? Then why is your administration proposing to slash as much as 25 percent of the Environmental Protection Agency’s current budget and cut its staff by 20 percent? That would cripple environmental safeguards, jeopardize public health, and put future generations at risk.
