    EPA Chief Pruitt Meets Almost Exclusively with Industry Executives
    October 3, 2017 at 7:21 am EDT

    WASHINGTON — For lunch on April 26, Scott Pruitt, the new administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, dined with top executives from Southern Company, one of the nation’s largest coal-burning electric utilities, at Equinox, a white-tablecloth favorite of Washington power brokers.

    That evening, it was on to BLT Prime, a steakhouse inside the Trump International Hotel in Washington, for a meal with the board of directors of Alliance Resource Partners, a coal-mining giant whose chief executive donated nearly $2 million to help elect President Trump.

    Before those two agenda items, Mr. Pruitt met privately with top executives and lobbyists from General Motors to talk about their request to block an Obama administration move to curb emissions that contribute to climate change.

    It was just a typical day for Mr. Pruitt, the former Oklahoma attorney general. Since taking office in February, Mr. Trump’s E.P.A. chief has held back-to-back meetings, briefing sessions and speaking engagements almost daily with top corporate executives and lobbyists from all the major economic sectors that he regulates — and almost no meetings with environmental groups or consumer or public health advocates, according to a 320-page accounting of his daily schedule from February through May, the most detailed look yet at what Mr. Pruitt has been up to since he took over the agency.

    Many of those players have high-profile matters pending before the agency, with potentially hundreds of millions of dollars in regulatory costs at stake. Some of these same companies and trade associations were allies of Mr. Pruitt when, as Oklahoma’s attorney general, he sued the E.P.A. at least 14 times to try to block rules Mr. Pruitt is now in charge of enforcing.

    Russians took a page from corporate America by using Facebook tool to ID and influence voters
    October 2 at 8:00 PM

    SAN FRANCISCO — Russian operatives set up an array of misleading Web sites and social media pages to identify American voters susceptible to propaganda, then used a powerful Facebook tool to repeatedly send them messages designed to influence their political behavior, say people familiar with the investigation into foreign meddling in the U.S. election.

    The tactic resembles what American businesses and political campaigns have been doing in recent years to deliver messages to potentially interested people online. The Russians exploited this system by creating English-language sites and Facebook pages that closely mimicked those created by U.S. political activists.

      With all my heart I hope this is true….

      “The circle is closing at blinding speed,” Tony Schwartz, who CNN reports spent more than a year with Trump writing his 1987 memoir, tweeted August 16. “Trump is going to resign and declare victory before Mueller and congress leave him no choice.”

      45’s ghostwriter said this in August.

      He gave himself an A+ from the professors at Trump University.

    I will ask again :
    The police said that the Domestic Terrorist was “known to the police.”

    What 64 year old White Man is ‘known to the police’?

    • Miranda

      Known to the police? What does that mean?

  • BoomerGal

    Good Morning, POU!

    Last night msn was talking about all the money (2 million so far) has been donated to the victims in LV and all the food and supplies also sent to the victims in the LV shooting. Now, somebody please explain to me the logic behind this b/c I’m confused. Why would people who had enough money to fly to LV for a concert or buy tickets to that concert, need money? Why would they need food and supplies like those in Puerto Rico who are begging for those same supplies, food and money??

    • Town

      Because they don’t give 2 shits about Puerto Rico but the people in Las Vegas could be their sister, their nephew or their friend.

      • BoomerGal

        Heh. That’s a spit in the face.

  • Miranda
    • BoomerGal

      How is it a miracle? They were doing their jobs!!

      • Town

        Black Lives Matter and NFL players didn’t gun them down, so it’s a miracle.

        • BoomerGal

    • BoomerGal

      Uh oh.

    • Town

      Wouldn’t a title search have cleared this up before the sale went through?

      Certainly the people at Morris Brown knew or should’ve known about the clause.

      Sounds like some gentrification foolery by Atlanta & Morris Brown didn’t care as long as they got the money.

      • Miranda

        Everyone knew except Friendship Baptist, but the city needed to make the sale happen to get the stadium built. Clark let it happen knowing they would sue later.

      • JojoRaze

        Sounds like they had Phaedra Parks as their lawyer and Clark Atlanta knew better and laid in the cut and brought out their century-old receipts.

        If Clark Atlanta is gonna reclaim this property seems as if they should consolidate with MBC since they are broke and apparently too foolish to continue on their own.

        • BoomerGal

          HAHAHAHHAAAA!!! No you didn’t say Phaedra Parks!! LOL!!!

          • JojoRaze

            I remember it was someone around here who said she always lost her clients’ cases.

    Mueller Tasks an Adviser With Getting Ahead of Pre-Emptive Pardons

    Source: Bloomberg

    U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller has a distinctly modern problem. The president, judging by his tweets, could try to pardon people in his circle even before prosecutors charge anyone with a crime.

    Mueller’s all-star team of prosecutors, with expertise in money laundering and foreign bribery, has an answer to that. He’s Michael Dreeben, a bookish career government lawyer with more than 100 Supreme Court appearances under his belt.

    Acting as Mueller’s top legal counsel, Dreeben has been researching past pardons and determining what, if any, limits exist, according to a person familiar with the matter. Dreeben’s broader brief is to make sure the special counsel’s prosecutorial moves are legally airtight. That could include anything from strategizing on novel interpretations of criminal law to making sure the recent search warrant on ex-campaign adviser Paul Manafort’s home would stand up to an appeal.

    “He’s seen every criminal case of any consequence in the last 20 years,” said Kathryn Ruemmler of Latham & Watkins LLP, who served as White House counsel under President Barack Obama. “If you wanted to do a no-knock warrant, he’d be a great guy to consult with to determine if you were exposing yourself.”

    • Town

      “Dreeben’s broader brief is to make sure the special counsel’s prosecutorial moves are legally airtight”

      THIS is why Mueller is taking his time and needs to take his time, because Trump & his friends are very slick & oily and will use any means necessary to get out of trouble.

  • Miranda
    • BoomerGal

      This is sounding more and more like a plan in the works.

      • Town

        Right, so black and brown people need to get their own armories going on because with the NRA’s ads advocating mowing down BLM (which all black people are a part of) and evil liberals etc, sounds like an extermination plan is in the works.

        • BoomerGal

          That’s exactly what I’m thinking!!

    • So, where are the #BlueLivesMatter folks?

      • Miranda

        The same place they were when all the Stand Your Ground laws were passing. They passively say they don’t like it but won’t stand up against the NRA either.

    • JojoRaze

      Every time they try to bring this bill to a vote a mass shooting happens. God is literally trying to tell them something and they don’t want to listen. They were supposed to bring up this bill the day after Steve Scalisce got shot and that shooting shelfed it. They were supposed to vote on the silencer bill this week and LV happens. What will it take for them to realize this is not supposed to happen?

      • BoomerGal

        I guess, He will have to come down from the cross and confront them personally.

      • sagittarius

        Morning Jojo,

        I had this exact same thought earlier this morning.

    • rikyrah

      Why
      Why
      WHY
      does anyone need ARMOR PIERCING BULLETS?

      • BoomerGal

        For WAR!!

  • Miranda
    • jds09

      This Bloomberg headline is such bullshit. Nobody has had experience being the president before they became president.

  • Miranda
  • Town

    Hmp.

    Last month, a black woman & her mother alleged the Golden Corral in Roanoke, VA discriminated against them by accusing them of stealing chicken & putting it in their purse. They claim the white waitress & white manager accused them of stealing chicken & demanded they open their purse. They refused, the manager threatened to call police, the women called the police, the manager claimed they had video of them stealing food but never reviewed it or showed it. Golden Corral banned them for life from coming back & the police told them they had to leave.

    After it went viral, Golden Corral contacted the women and apologized and fired the white waitress.

    The women just filed a lawsuit last week against Golden Corral for discrimination. Also, they got a protective order against the white waitress because apparently she’s been sending them threatening messages on Facebook (which she admitted to).

    Yet, in all of the comments, the white commenters claim they know the black women were stealing the chicken and Golden Corral did nothing wrong. Not one person has condemned the white waitress for sending threatening messages to the black family.

    This is why police reform will always be an uphill battle for black people because we are automatically assumed to be in the wrong every time.

    • jds09

      This is part of the social contract the “white working class” people in exchange for taking it in the shorts economically. The abilility to “police” Blacks in any situation.

      This probaly goes way back….I’ll et some indentured servants did some shit like this.

      • 7thangel

        i’m tired of the narrative of the rich white man fooling his poorer brethren without mentioning this mutually agreed upon contract they have.

    Fox & Friends guest blames CNN for mass shootings

    Source: Think Progress

    A forensic psychiatrist told Fox News on Tuesday morning that CNN was to blame for mass shootings like what transpired in Las Vegas.

    “I think that CNN’s going to have to answer how they demonize gun enthusiasts and how CNN actually contributes to mass shooting,” Michael Welner said. “And I think that they do.”

    Welner appeared on Fox & Friends to try to answer the question as to why Stephen Paddock opened fire on a Las Vegas concert Sunday night. Offering his perspective that Paddock did not seem to fit the profile of many other mass shooters, he concluded that he must have had a cause, and that cause must have been guns themselves.

    “Absolutely, people who are gun enthusiasts and who are populists or nationalists in this country are dehumanized. They’re demonized,” Welner said, agreeing with the completely unfounded assumption that Paddock perceived the attendees of a country music festival as being gun-toting Trump supporters. “His mind-set is that they deserve to die.”

    DOJ releases overruled memos finding it illegal for presidents to appoint relatives

    Source: Politico

    The Justice Department has released a series of recently overruled legal memos concluding that presidents cannot appoint their relatives to the White House staff or presidential commissions, even to unpaid posts.

    In January, a career Justice Department official essentially declared the earlier opinions erroneous or obsolete, clearing the way for President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner to take a senior adviser position in the White House. First daughter Ivanka Trump later took a similar official but unpaid slot under the same legal rationale.

    The newly-disclosed opinions, issued to the Nixon, Carter and Reagan White House and obtained by POLITICO Monday through a Freedom of Information Act request, detail how Justice Department lawyers concluded for decades that such appointments of family members were illegal under an anti-nepotism law passed in 1967.

    “You have asked for our opinion on the question whether the President could appoint Mrs. Carter to be Chairman of a Commission on Mental Health proposed to be established in a forthcoming Executive Order. It is our opinion that he may not,” acting Assistant Attorney General John Harmon wrote in a February 1977 memo to Carter White House Associate Counsel Douglas Huron.

    House Republicans seek $1 billion in Medicaid funds for Puerto Rico

    Source: Reuters

    #POLITICS OCTOBER 3, 2017 / 11:34 AM / UPDATED AN HOUR AGO

    Reuters Staff

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Puerto Rico, struggling to recover from hurricane damage, could receive $1 billion in additional funding for the Medicaid health insurance program for the poor under a proposal from a U.S. House of Representatives panel, a congressional aide said on Tuesday.

    Republicans who lead the House Energy and Commerce Committee included the request for more Medicaid funding for Puerto Rico as part of a separate bill to reauthorize the Children’s Health Insurance Program. It is scheduled to be considered and voted on in committee on Wednesday.

    The U.S. territorial island, hard-hit by Hurricane Maria, already had faced a drop-off of Medicaid funding at the end of the year, according to the Washington Post, which first reported Republicans’ plan. Now Puerto Rico also faces massive damage from Maria that wiped out much of its infrastructure, left hospitals struggling and residents without clean water, electricity and cellphone service.

    Committee spokeswoman Jennifer Sherman said the panel would take up the bill on Wednesday as part of its effort to renew funding for the larger U.S. children’s insurance program, which saw its funding expire during the weekend.

    Trump pledges help to Puerto Rico, but notes ‘you’ve thrown our budget a little out of whack’

    Source: Hartford Courant

    President Donald Trump is pledging to help Puerto Rico continue to recover from Hurricane Maria’s devastation. He is defending his administration’s handling of the disaster that knocked out power to the U.S. island’s 3.4 million people.

    In an airport hangar in Puerto Rico, Trump also sought praise from local officials. He repeated that they have to help with the recovery and scolded them for a longstanding budget crisis. Trump said, “I hate to tell you, Puerto Rico but you’ve thrown our budget a little out of whack because we’ve spent a lot of money on Puerto Rico.”

    He was referring to Puerto $74 billion public debt load and a decade-old economic recession.

    Trump’s visit comes after what critics have said was a slow response.
