STATES RIGHTS! (OH, wait . . .never mind)

Let's hear from all those "States Rights" advocates now that Trump is trying to nullify the legal right of California to set it's own, stricter, standards for auto emissions.  

This Trump effort was By The Way . . . opposed by the auto manufacturers foreign and domestic.

But, of course, we won't hear from them at all, unless it will be to attempt quell the cognitive dissonance this creates for the average, sane, person.

Space Farce created!

No clue.  No clue at all.

Folks in the Trump Administration, or Mal-Administration, one might say, seem to have no idea how increasingly ridiculous and out of touch with reality they appear to the rest of us.


Space Force indeed.  I believe a bit more than a flag unfurlinging in the Rose Garden, with Mike the Sphinx Pence looking on approvingly, will be needed to actually "create a new" agency. 

Even if one is actually simply re-branding and existing one and taking credit.   Not that taking credit for the works of others is a novel thing with Trump.

Navy "torpedo's" Trump?

So, once again, Hugh Hewitt of Washington Post infamy, spews out his Trump Derangement Syndrome blather.

He apparently wants the Navy and implicitly the rest of the Military, turned into a Trump support group, making National Defense decisions based on Partisan Politics.

Perhaps it is beyond the limited comprehension of someone like Huge Dimwit to understand that blaming realists, like Naval planners, for failing to implement the fantasy fleet that Trump touted while campaigning.   Never mind that Trump is so poorly versed in the realities of modern Navies that he refers to some ship task forces as "Armadas".

The Trump "administration's" lack of understanding of the fundamental issues regarding Military readiness and organization had already been shown by their decision to organize the "Space Force" under the Air Force.  Not, mind you, under an organization that has centuries of experience creating ships and crews that spend months or years in a hostile environment, but on an organization that has never had to man a vessel for more than a few hours at a time, with crews of just a few men. 

Because, you know . . . Sky . . . Rockets . . . Up . . .  Air . . . Ya know?

Barr performs his role perfectly.

With the Epstein death, Barr leaps into the fray immediately, to set the framework for "discussion", much as he did for the Mueller Report.

Of course, he is outraged, shocked, shocked even, to learn there is gambling . . . oh, sorry, shortcomings at detention centers.  

Yes, he performs his role perfectly.  But so does a trained seal.  I hope he gets more than a fish as a reward.
