  1. ... "In May 2018, Trump ordered the NSC’s entire global health security unit shut down, calling for reassignment of Rear Adm. Timothy Ziemer and dissolution of his team inside the agency. The month before, then-White House National Security Advisor John Bolton pressured Ziemer’s DHS counterpart, Tom Bossert, to resign along with his team. Neither the NSC nor DHS epidemic teams have been replaced. The global health section of the CDC was so drastically cut in 2018 that much of its staff was laid off and the number of countries it was working in was reduced from 49 to merely 10. Meanwhile, throughout 2018, the U.S. Agency for International Development and its director, Mark Green, came repeatedly under fire from both the White House and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. And though Congress has so far managed to block Trump administration plans to cut the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps by 40 percent, the disease-fighting cadres have steadily eroded as retiring officers go unreplaced." ...

  2. Supreme Executive Apprentice: The Pardoned
  3. She uses Klobuchar as an example in this work. I snipped her differentiators in light of her new support for Trump.
  4. Casper Weinberger Roger Clemens H.R. Haldeman ETA: sorry, just felt like chiming in
  5. But these are his convicted felons. There is a difference.
  6. I will never forget the front page of the NYTimes with Weinberger laughing during his press conference. (original behind pay wall, link to related story with pic: AP wipes Iran-Contra pardons from Bill Barr's record: Another win for conventional wisdom The bolded sounds kinda familiar.
  7. As a mod (let alone an owner trying to bring about a new, friendlier era at FBG message boards) are you really goading a poster to act in a manner that will earn a suspension? I imagine your job sucks, but, please pull the plug on this before you become what you hate.
  8. C'mon, crack open that thesaurus of yours. You can come up with something. Maybe some obscure lyrics or poetry?
  9. Reading the local paper this morning I came across an article about the WV ACLU sending notices to elected officials that blocking constituents on social media is a violation of First Amendment rights. Has anyone else seen this in their state? From acluwv.org: BLOCKED ON SOCIAL: NINE ELECTED OFFICIALS, POLICE DEPT. PUT ON NOTICE FEBRUARY 5, 2020 - 3:00PM CHARLESTON, W.Va. – Nine elected West Virginia officials and one police department have been notified that they are violating the First Amendment rights of their constituents who they have blocked on Facebook and Twitter. ... The U.S. Supreme Court has referred to social media as a “modern public square.” When a government official cuts off access to a public square because of a constituent’s viewpoint, they are depriving that person of their rights under both the federal and state constitutions, said ACLU-WV Legal Director Loree Stark, who issued the notices. “It’s unacceptable for public officials to deny their constituents access because of a differing viewpoint,” Stark said. “And it is just as unconstitutional to bar a constituent from engaging on an official social media account because they disagree with you as it is to ban someone from a town hall event.” The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals recently found that an elected official engaged in unconstitutional viewpoint discrimination when she banned a constituent on Facebook.
  10. CBS News✔@CBSNews CBS News asked @MikeBloomberg — who is campaigning in California during the Iowa Caucuses — about his feud with President Trump, and whether people want to see two billionaires fighting on Twitter. Bloomberg: "Two billionaires? Who's the second one?" https://twitter.com/CBSNews/status/1224546051941683202
  11. First, I think the SoTU address has become mere political fanfare (please see standing ovations) and should be eliminated. Withholding aid to Ukraine was over the line, what Pelosi did was boorish, inelegant, and mannerless. Glad I didn't waste my time watching it.
  12. What if we start a rumor that he saved some puppies?
  13. NYPost: "At the fertility clinic, the couple signed an agreement outlining what would happen if they decide to break up. The embryos could either be donated to another couple, or one partner would be permitted to use them — with the other’s permission, according to the ruling." ABC News Phoenix: "In the agreement signed by both parties, there were three alternatives the couple could seek if they separated, divorced, or one of the them died: They could discard the embryos, donate the embryos to another couple, allow one partner to use the embryos with the other's permission." I wonder why the discrepancy with the Post regarding the couple's fertility agreement?
