Dit is een beter filmpje, waarin Trump wat meer spreekt.quote:
Zozo, Trump kan iets aardigs zeggen over veteranen. En wij maar denken dat die man niet geschikt is voor z'n functie.quote:Op donderdag 7 december 2017 20:49 schreef Nintex het volgende:

quote:Sanders: The president’s taxes, no matter who the president is, actually immediately go under audit after being filed.
Sanders’ full excuse, therefore, is that President Trump still can’t release his taxes because they’re presently subject to an automatic audit.
Except that’s not really the case.
Zo word er over gedacht. Zie Grassley en zijn opmerkingen over arme mensen, die moet je geen geld geven want dat gaat toch maar op aan drank en eten.quote:

quote:WASHINGTON— The Center for Biological Diversity today filed a notice of intent to sue the Trump administration over a new policy allowing state representatives with no scientific background to be included in endangered species determinations.
“Species status assessment” teams were originally intended to be groups of scientists tasked by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to, among other things, determine if species need protection under the Endangered Species Act. But this new policy calls for those teams to include representatives from states’ governors’ offices, regardless of whether they have any scientific expertise.
The policy is detailed in a memorandum that was leaked to the press this week and dated Oct. 13. It specifies that each team will have two state representatives, one from a state fish and wildlife agency and one from the governor’s office.
“Scientists, not political appointees, should determine which wildlife get protected under the Endangered Species Act,” said Ryan Shannon, a staff attorney at the Center. “This policy is clearly designed to interject politics into what’s supposed to be a strictly scientific determination, a move that’s all too typical in Trump’s war on science.”
The policy likely gives veto power over protection of endangered species to governors’ offices, which in a number of states are hostile to endangered species. For species that occur in multiple states, the policy could easily create a situation where potentially biased state representatives outnumber scientists on the species status assessment teams.
The new policy will also greatly slow the decision-making process. The Fish and Wildlife Service already faces a backlog of more than 500 species awaiting protection and has fallen behind on a workplan developed under the Obama administration. The Trump administration has denied protection to 31 species, including the Pacific walrus, black-backed woodpecker, Florida Keys mole skink and Northern Rocky Mountains fisher.
Issued by a political appointee never confirmed by the Senate, the Oct. 13 policy was produced without public notice or the opportunity for comment.
“This is another unlawful example of the Trump administration working behind closed doors to weaken environmental protections,” said Shannon. “Thankfully, the law requires policies such as this to be exposed to the light of public scrutiny.”
quote:Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) is expected to resign, according to a Republican operative informed on the congressman’s decision.
Franks was first elected in 2002 and was among the first members to join the Tea Party Caucus. He has been known as one of the most outspoken opponents of abortion in Congress. Franks considered a bid for the Senate in 2012 but opted against it.
The surprise resignation will prompt a special election in Franks' red-tinted 8th District in the western suburbs of Phoenix, which President Donald Trump carried by 21 points in 2016.
Several names have already been floated by local Republican operatives as potential special election candidates, including former Gov. Jan Brewer, Maricopa County Supervisor Clint Hickman, Peoria Mayor Cathy Carlat, state Sen. Debbie Lesko and state Sen. Kimberly Yee.
Franks had already drawn a Democratic opponent, Hiral Tipirneni, who raised more than $165,000 during the third quarter of 2017 — more than the incumbent.
“It’s a safe Republican district on paper, but what type of Republican that emerges here – is it more of a pro-business establishment type or is it a deep red Freedom Caucus person, is still yet to be determined,” said Chip Scutari, a Republican consultant based in Arizona.
quote:The British publicist who arranged the June 2016 meeting with Russians and Donald Trump Jr. sent multiple emails to a Russian participant and a member of Donald Trump's inner circle later that summer, multiple sources told CNN, the first indication there was any follow-up after the meeting.
The emails raise new questions for congressional investigators about what was discussed at Trump Tower. Trump Jr. has for months contended that after being promised he would get dirt on Hillary Clinton, the brief meeting focused almost exclusively on the issue of Russian adoptions, saying there was no discussion with the participants after that session.
The emails from the publicist, Rob Goldstone, were discovered by congressional investigators and raised at Wednesday's classified hearing with Trump Jr., who said he could not recall the interactions, several sources said. None of the newly disclosed emails were sent directly to Trump Jr. They are bound to be a subject during Goldstone's closed-door meetings with the House and Senate intelligence panels, which are expected to take place as early as next week.
An email from Goldstone to senior Trump aide Dan Scavino, now the White House director of social media, reveals a previously undisclosed topic that was discussed at the meeting. It encourages Scavino to get candidate Trump to create a page on the Russian social networking site VK, telling him that "Don and Paul" were on board with the idea -- a reference to then-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Trump Jr.SPOILER“The fundamental cause of the trouble in the modern world today is that the stupid are cocksure while the intelligent are full of doubt.”— Bertrand Russell
