Trump’s NASA Chief Has Apparently Changed His Tune On Climate Change :o (HuffPo)
quote:
Jim Bridenstine, Donald Trump’s pick as NASA administrator, appeared to change his tune on climate change during his first employee town hall since he was confirmed to the position, acknowledging that human beings contribute significantly to the warming of the planet.

“As far as my position on climate change and how it’s evolved, I’ll be very open,” he told NASA employees Thursday. “I don’t deny that consensus that the climate is changing. In fact, I fully believe and know that the climate is changing. I also know that we human beings are contributing to it in a major way.”

Humans are putting greenhouse gases into the atmosphere “in volumes that we haven’t seen, and that greenhouse gas is warming the planet. That is absolutely happening, and we are responsible for it.”

"We should not live in a country where we have to go to school in fear of the possibility of looking down the barrel of a rifle.”

Afijn, je doet met een groepje een peaceful sit-in... nou, de politie en Paul Ryan (R) denken daar heeeeel anders over!
quote:
Some parents in Montgomery County, Maryland, are likely to hear an interesting response Friday night when they ask their teenagers how the day at school went.

Eight members of Montgomery County Students for Gun Control made their way to the U.S. Capitol on Friday afternoon, where they staged a sit-in outside the office of House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.). They were calling on him to pass common-sense gun control legislation.

The U.S. Capitol Police ended up arresting four of them, according to Daniel Gelillo, a member of the student group who didn’t attend the sit-in.

Gelillo, 17, told HuffPost that the teens organized Friday’s action as a rapid response to that morning’s Texas high school shooting, which left 10 dead and another 10 wounded.

He added, “We should not live in a country where we have to go to school in fear of the possibility of looking down the barrel of a rifle.”

Eva Malecki, communications director for the U.S. Capitol Police, confirmed that four juveniles were arrested Friday outside the office building where Ryan works. The four face charges of “crowding, obstructing, or incommoding.”

Texas Lt. Gov. Says ‘Too Many Entrances’ Possibly To Blame In School Shooting (HuffPo)
quote:
After at least 10 people were shot and killed at a school in Santa Fe, Texas, the state’s lieutenant governor said the problem may have been that there were too many entrances and exits at the building for guards to monitor ― as opposed to, say, easy access to guns.

The attack, which left 10 others wounded, took place on Friday morning at Santa Fe High School. At a press conference later that day, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick said that in order to prevent other such shootings, officials may have to “look at the design of our schools.”

“There are too many entrances and too many exits to our 8,000 campuses in Texas. There aren’t enough people to put a guard at every entrance and exit,” he said, adding that limiting entrances to “one or two” could allow law enforcement to look at everyone who enters.

Had there been one single entrance possibly for every student, maybe he would have been stopped,” Patrick said, referring to the suspected shooter, who, he added, was wearing a long coat with a shotgun under it on a 90-degree day.

Leuk dat mensen op Twitter het 'one of the stupidest things I've ever heard' vinden, maar entrance =/= exit natuurlijk. Zoveel gebouwen zoals ziekenhuizen met tientallen emergency exits en slechts een of enkele ingangen die van buiten toegankelijk zijn voor publiek. Maar er moet natuurlijk weer verontwaardigd gereageerd worden...

Dit afgezien van de vraag of dit nou de beste oplossing is voor school shootings ;)

Slaat sowieso nergens op. Waarom zou een schietpartij enkel binnen plaats moeten vinden. Sterker nog, ik denk dat het zelfs "efficiënter" is om het te doen als iedereen net de school verlaat.

Het is sowieso een wat eigenaardig idee dat je willekeurig geweld kunt voorkomen door infrastructuur en beveiliging. Het is zoals gebruikelijk weer een manier om niet over de daadwerkelijke oorzaken te praten.

Berkeley-professor Richard A.

quote:
The Conversion of a Climate-Change Skeptic (NYTimes, July 28, 2012)

Call me a converted skeptic. Three years ago I identified problems in previous climate studies that, in my mind, threw doubt on the very existence of global warming. Last year, following an intensive research effort involving a dozen scientists, I concluded that global warming was real and that the prior estimates of the rate of warming were correct. I’m now going a step further: Humans are almost entirely the cause.

My total turnaround, in such a short time, is the result of careful and objective analysis by the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature project, which I founded with my daughter Elizabeth. Our results show that the average temperature of the earth’s land has risen by two and a half degrees Fahrenheit over the past 250 years, including an increase of one and a half degrees over the most recent 50 years. Moreover, it appears likely that essentially all of this increase results from the human emission of greenhouse gases.

These findings are stronger than those of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the United Nations group that defines the scientific and diplomatic consensus on global warming. In its 2007 report, the I.P.C.C. concluded only that most of the warming of the prior 50 years could be attributed to humans. It was possible, according to the I.P.C.C. consensus statement, that the warming before 1956 could be because of changes in solar activity, and that even a substantial part of the more recent warming could be natural.

- Climate Change Study Forces Skeptical Scientists to Change Minds (idem, 31 juli 2012)
- Richard Muller: I Was wrong on Climate Change (YouTube, januari 2015)

Een vergelijkbaar verhaal (hoewel mogelijk apocrief) gaat over een andere Richard, namelijk Richard de Mos (ex-PVV) die in de Tweede Kamer de portefeuille "Klimaat" kreeg toegeschoven toen Barry Madlener (die zelfs een beetje écht ingelezen was) naar "Europa" vertrok. Richard gaf toe niets van het onderwerp te weten en meldde in de media dat zijn mailbox openstond voor iedereen die het op klimaatgebied niet met de regering eens was. (Dit was dus vóórdat de PVV in gedoogkabinet Rutte I stapte.)

Zo'n mededeling werkt natuurlijk als een megamagneet op de allergekste complotgekkies en aangezien De Mos zich serieus had voorgenomen alles te lezen (je moet er toch niet aan denken), zag hij er al snel dingen tussen die écht te gek voor woorden waren. Niet dat hij daardoor gillend van kamp A naar kamp B vloodt, maar hij is daardoor privé een heel stuk richting "Ik ben er nog niet uit"-opgeschoven. (Hoewel hij officiëel nog steeds het anti-standpunt verkondigde, maar hij vond dat dat prima samen kon.)

Trump Jr. and Other Aides Met With Gulf Emissary Offering Help to Win Election (NYTimes)

WASHINGTON — Three months before the 2016 election, a small group gathered at Trump Tower to meet with Donald Trump Jr., the president’s eldest son. One was an Israeli specialist in social media manipulation. Another was an emissary for two wealthy Arab princes. The third was a Republican donor with a controversial past in the Middle East as a private security contractor.

The meeting was convened primarily to offer help to the Trump team, and it forged relationships between the men and Trump insiders that would develop over the coming months — past the election and well into President Trump’s first year in office, according to several people with knowledge of their encounters.

Erik Prince, the private security contractor and the former head of Blackwater, arranged the meeting, which took place on Aug. 3, 2016. The emissary, George Nader, told Donald Trump Jr. that the crown princes who led Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates were eager to help his father win election as president. The social media specialist, Joel Zamel, extolled his company’s ability to give an edge to a political campaign; by that time, the firm had already drawn up a multimillion-dollar proposal for a social media manipulation effort to help elect Mr. Trump.

The company, which employed several Israeli former intelligence officers, specialized in collecting information and shaping opinion through social media.

It is unclear whether such a proposal was executed, and the details of who commissioned it remain in dispute. But Donald Trump Jr. responded approvingly, according to a person with knowledge of the meeting, and after those initial offers of help, Mr. Nader was quickly embraced as a close ally by Trump campaign advisers — meeting frequently with Jared Kushner, Mr. Trump’s son-in-law, and Michael T. Flynn, who became the president’s first national security adviser. At the time, Mr. Nader was also promoting a secret plan to use private contractors to destabilize Iran, the regional nemesis of Saudi Arabia and the Emirates.

After Mr. Trump was elected, Mr. Nader paid Mr. Zamel a large sum of money, described by one associate as up to $2 million. There are conflicting accounts of the reason for the payment, but among other things, a company linked to Mr. Zamel provided Mr. Nader with an elaborate presentation about the significance of social media campaigning to Mr. Trump’s victory.

The meetings, which have not been reported previously, are the first indication that countries other than Russia may have offered assistance to the Trump campaign in the months before the presidential election. The interactions are a focus of the investigation by Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel, who was originally tasked with examining possible Trump campaign coordination with Russia in the election.

Mueller Probe Expands to Israeli Entrepreneur With U.A.E. Ties (The Wall Street Journal)
Investigation has sought testimony regarding work of Joel Zamel, founder of several private consulting firms

WASHINGTON—Special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe is looking more closely into Middle Eastern involvement during Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, as it is now exploring the role of an Israeli entrepreneur with ties to a Gulf monarchy, according to people familiar with the matter.

Mr. Mueller has been conducting interviews about the work of Joel Zamel, an Australia-born Israeli businessman with experience in social media and intelligence gathering. Mr. Zamel is the founder of several private consulting firms—including a crowdsourced analysis firm called Wikistrat as well as the Psy Group, a secretive private intelligence firm with the motto “shape reality.”

A subpoena concerning Mr. Zamel’s work, but not issued to Mr. Zamel, was reviewed by The Wall Street Journal.

Mr. Zamel met with Donald Trump Jr. , Mr. Trump’s eldest son, at Trump Tower in the months before the 2016 election along with George Nader, a top adviser to the crown prince of the United Arab Emirates, to discuss an offer to help boost the campaign. Erik Prince, a U.S. defense contractor who specializes in the Middle East and had close ties to the campaign, also attended the meeting, which was first reported by the New York Times on Saturday.

Following Mr. Trump’s election, Mr. Nader made a payment to Mr. Zamel of $2 million, which a person familiar with the payment described as unrelated to the campaign.

Alan Futerfas, a lawyer for the younger Mr. Trump, confirmed the meeting in a statement. “Prior to the 2016 election, Donald Trump Jr. recalls a meeting with Eric Prince [sic], George Nader, and another individual who may be Joel Zamel. They pitched Mr. Trump Jr. on a social media platform or marketing strategy,” he said. The younger Mr. Trump “was not interested and that was the end of it.”

Dit vond ik wel een goed artikeltje / opiniestukje wat hier op ingaat... en vrij specifiek over The Federalist: http://theweek.com/articl(...)nsibility-federalist
Ja de taktiek is al heel lang om het feit te negeren dat er gegronde redenen waren voor de FBI om leden van de Trump-campagne te 'volgen' en het te gooien op een onwettig onderzoek omdat de 'deep state' het op Trump gemunt heeft. :')

Ja, zelfs al was een FBI agent geïnfiltreerd in zijn organisatie dan nog wijst alles erop dat dit om zeer legitieme reden zou zijn geweest. Hij doet voorkomen alsof meneer Trump niet onderzocht mocht worden, maar dat "Obama's FBI" slechts alleen Clinton mocht onderzoeken ofzo.

The World’s Ugliest American (HuffPo Opinion, reading time 7:49)

"What makes Trump’s amorality unique is that it serves no strategy."
quote:
One year into the Trump administration, as our president prepares for his trip to address the annual World Economic Forum in Davos, here is the dynamic abroad: No foreign enemy could have degraded America’s global standing so completely in so short a time.

In word and deed, Donald Trump personifies the American ignoramus abroad. He insults foreign leaders in tweets, then melts in their presence. He switches positions based on personal flattery. He parades his ignorance of geopolitics. His erratic behavior and bellicose boasts provoke alarm in a nuclear age.

No longer does America advocate for an inclusive international order that promotes democracy and stability. In Politico, Susan Glasser cataloged the verdict of foreign governments: Our president is uninformed, unstable and erratic, a volatile and self-obsessed fool with a dystopian worldview.

Particularly incendiary is his racism. His Muslim ban, race-baiting and disdain for immigrants of color sullies America’s global reputation. And his recent disparagement of non-white countries as “shitholes” alienates governments we need to help combat terrorism and narco-trafficking.

Nor can Trump’s advisers stem the damage. He tramples on policy formulations and rejects advice. His fractious foreign policy team includes the sophomoric Jared Kushner. Disdainful of diplomacy, Trump has gutted the State Department and left critical posts vacant, eroding America’s capacity to advance its global objectives. In foreign policy, he asserts, “I’m the only one who matters.”

What matters especially to the world is Trump’s wholesale abdication of leadership. He scorns alliances, international institutions, trade agreements and multilateral efforts to stem global threats like climate change. His atavistic mindset is that of a real estate developer bent on “winning” one-on-one negotiations with the competitor at hand – leaving others to organize the landscape which surrounds him.

Houston Police Chief Says He’s Sick Of Inaction On Gun Control (HuffPo)
quote:
Following another school shooting, this one leaving 10 dead and 13 injured in Texas, Houston’s police chief is calling out elected officials for their failure to protect the children they claim to hold so dear.

Police Chief Art Acevedo posted a pained message on Facebook after Friday’s shooting in the nearby town of Santa Fe, in which a 17-year-old student at Santa Fe High School gunned down his classmates and a teacher. No one ― not even the terrified kids themselves ― seemed to be all that surprised, with one student telling the local news she felt “eventually it was going to happen here too.”

Acevedo said he has had enough inaction when it comes to protecting children. “Today I spent the day dealing with another mass shooting of children and a responding police officer who is clinging to life,” the police chief wrote Friday. “I’m not ashamed to admit I’ve shed tears of sadness, pain and anger.”

He had a message to those who would choose their guns over the safety of kids.

“I know some have strong feelings about gun rights, but I want you to know I’ve hit rock bottom and I am not interested in your views as it pertains to this issue,” he said. “This is a time for the asking of God’s forgiveness for our inaction, especially the elected officials that ran to the cameras today, called for prayers, and will once again do absolutely nothing.”

The police chief previously marched with demonstrators during the March 24 March for Our Lives event, held in response to the Feb. 14 mass shooting at a Parkland, Florida, high school.

BBC Trolls President Trump With Bigly Huge Royal Wedding Crowd (HuffPo)
quote:
President Donald Trump loves to compare the size and greatness of all the things he’s involved with, and people love to mock him for it. Even our British friends across the pond. (WHERE HE WAS NOT INVITED :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D - bp)

Early Saturday morning, BBC Three pointed out the size of the crowd that amassed to see Prince Harry marry former actress Meghan Markle. The network compared it to the crowd size at President Trump’s inauguration, which, more than a year later, remains a seemingly bottomless well of jokes.

President Trump has not responded to the dig. But we’ll know his thoughts as soon as “Fox & Friends” shows him the tweet.

Dan moet Prince de gevangenis in. Meineed is geen licht vergrijp.

Wel frappant dat 20 miljoen blijkbaar te veel is om aan een onderzoek uit te geven maar de Benghazi & E-mail onderzoeken bij elkaar al meer dan 40 miljoen hebben gekost.

Tenslotte nog even een reminder dat alle topambtenaren die bij het onderzoek betrokken zijn, Republikeinen zijn. Sessions, Wray, Rosenstein, Mueller.
