Merging "Loyalty to the Oil Industry" and "Grudge Against California," Trump Opens 725,000 Acres to Fossil Fuel Drilling The Trump administration on Friday moved to open more than 725,000 acres of California's central coast to potential oil and gas drilling, a decision environmentalists condemned as a disastrous handout to big polluters at a time when urgent action is needed to slash greenhouse gas emissions.

"Not Founded On Anything": The Epitaph for the Sarah Huckabee Sanders Era Sanders embraced a scorched earth strategy wherein a quite shameless effort to defend Trump -- she would gladly sacrifice core elements of democratic society, such as a free press. Sanders was doing precisely the job that she was asked, and loved, to do: lie, attack, deflect and question the very nature of reality, and undermine anyone or anything that threatened the power of the privileged.

A Trump Impeachment Has Risks, But They Are Worth Taking There are risks for impeachment. Political risks. It is obvious that no House-led impeachment proceeding, however well-orchestrated and compelling, can possibly result in a Senate conviction of Trump; the consistent conduct of Senate Republicans for over two years makes this clear. There is a risk that an impeachment could be framed as both "overreach" and "failure," and thus could strengthen Trump's hand in 2020.

"In Front of Your Nose" -- A Sequel to Orwell in the Trump Era Trump has never been sincere about anything in his life other than his own ambition. His "skepticism" about climate change is actually an awareness of the fossil fuel interests that fund him and the Republican Party, as well as his (probably unfounded) belief that the unemployed coal miners who voted for him can be rewarded with jobs in the mines if the climate issue can be made to go away.
