Trump pulls out of Paris Climate Agreement.

Quote:
“We will begin negotiations to re-enter the Paris accord or an entirely new transaction, on terms fair to the US – it’s businesses, workers, taxpayers,” he added. “So we’re getting out, but we’ll start to negotiate, to see if we can make a deal that’s fair. If we can that’s great, if we can’t that’s fine.”

The US will now join Syria and Nicaragua in a rather ignominious and exclusive club as the only nations that are not part of the global effort to curb greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Once leaders in the world, the U.S. is willing to be backward losers on innovation, and cling to their old and soon to be obsolete industries. Keep spending money to keep the bombs dropping while feeding oil money into the very countries that fund terrorism and extremism. Who would want to do business with the U.S. when they will sign and break contract agreements on a whim? Sure, cling to those false hopes of jobs jobs jobs in coal and oil, ignore the fact that jobs will be the least of our worries if our ecosystem crumbles. Anything to keep oiling those wheels of war with the blood of others, that'll be Trump's legacy.

Meanwhile, China promises to stand with the EU in supporting the Paris Agreements. Won't be long before America becomes the new third world country.



Here's a Photoshop for you guys:

Yeah, and Nicaragua is expected to join eventually, since the reason they didn't sign originally is because the agreement wasn't progressive enough.

thing is, the agreement doesn't even have penalties for defaulting, and 2C limit has been criticised for being too high. Trump could have stayed in and got the same outcome in terms of jeerrrbs (whatever that is). instead he went for the 'bad optics' approach. what a fucking tool :|

Drumpf pulling the US out of the Paris Climate Accord may end up being a blessing in disguise for the planet, despite Drumpf's best efforts. It's galvanized governors and mayors across the US to say they will adhere to the accord despite Drumpf, I think the number's over 80 right now, including the governors of CA and NY. And on the international level, countries like China, France, Germany and Canada are all vying to be #1 in climate change prevention now that the US has fallen behind.

IMO, the whole Trump presidency will be a blessing. Even if it takes until 2020, the conservatives will never recover. Once the left has a chance, they'll never remove their grasp...

The Dems are so incompetent they won't be able to capitalize. Or if they do, it will be short lived.

https://www.vox.com/world/2017/6/5/1573 ... -australia

Quote:
Mattis has repeatedly said that the US was committed to Article 5 of the NATO treaty, which is meant to deter Russian aggression by promising that an attack on one alliance member would be seen as an attack on all. If Vladimir Putin sent tanks into Estonia, for instance, Washington would have to come to the small nation’s defense.

Or at least it would if Drumpf were willing to explicitly and publicly endorse the provision. The problem is that he isn’t. During a speech in Brussels last week, he ignored the advice of Mattis and other top administration national security officials by refusing to mention Article 5, infuriating many European leaders.

Making matters more complicated, Politico reported that Mattis wasn’t told about Drumpf’s decision in advance, meaning the Pentagon chief was caught flat-footed — and undercut, yet again, by his own boss.

Mattis has long been seen as a voice of reason in the chaotic and impulsive Drumpf administration, a sober-minded and experienced national security professional who believes in the policies that have guided US presidents from both parties for decades.

He’s spent his first months trying to clean up the president’s messes, in Asia and elsewhere. The problem is that Drumpf keeps making more of them.


If Drumpf gets escorted out of the White House in handcuffs, it will make all this worth it.

For the uninitiated.

Almost too much to keep up with. It doesn't appear that the NSA was able to glean much although there are a ton of "we don't knows" in their report so who the fuck knows. The paragraph of the article is all that really matters though...

I'll be eating popcorn tomorrow while the Comey inquiry goes down.

I caught a bit on the radio on the way in but I came home after work and watched all 2.5hrs of it. Interesting indeed! Trump truly looks like a psychopath juvenile trapped in a 70-year old man's body when juxtaposed with Comey. Also what the fuck was with McCain. What a rambling fucknut.

Found this an interesting take on the Rosenstein / Sessions hearings: http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_ ... cagey.html

Quote:
If Mueller concludes that Trump fired Comey over the Russia investigation, nothing Sessions or Rosenstein said in their hearings will turn out to be false. Sessions denied any collusion with Russia, and Rosenstein said he’s leaving such questions to Mueller. But on the question of whether Trump fired Comey to obstruct justice, and whether the president orchestrated a cover story to conceal that obstruction, the two men Trump enlisted are taking care not to vouch for his innocence. Maybe that’s because they can’t. Maybe they know they were used, and they don’t want to get caught in a web of lies.
