Bonkers, Paranoid, & Potentially Trapped Donald Trump vs Mike Pence — Who Would Be Worse?

I saw the following title on Google News and broke out with a quiet but spontaneous midnight laugh: Is Donald Trump bonkers, paranoid or trapped? The answer is quite likely “all of the above,” of course, which is probably why it was so funny. However, I think the bigger question is, “Who’s more dangerous as president — Donald Trump or Mike Pence?” I’ll get back to that question after quickly running down the idea that Trump is bonkers, paranoid, and/or trapped.

Gutted EPA Mileage Rules Will Please Global Petro-States

On Tuesday, March 7th, the Trump administration will reverse the Obama administration’s Final Determination requiring automakers meet an average 54.5 miles per gallon by 2025, according to Inside EPA.

An alliance of manufacturers had urged protection for fuel inefficiency in a letter to Trump EPA administrator Scott Pruitt in February, and the industry request is one of hundreds of industry-requested rollbacks in Obama rules that are now on the chopping block, according to the New York Times.

What If Obama Had Done it?

For years, many Republicans falsely claimed that Obama was not born in the US (and thus wasn’t our legitimate president), that he’s Muslim (he’s actually Christian), that he hates America (so obviously absurd that the claim baffles the mind), etc., etc. All the while, Obama maintained his composure and was “presidential” for his entire 8 years as president. Try to imagine for a minute if he wasn’t. And try to imagine he had serious conflicts of interest and strong ties to anti-democratic, anti-USA countries. What would the haters have been yelling if he crossed the lines Trump has crossed?

Easy As Two Plus Two — How To Regain Our Democracy

As a former conservative Republican (in fact, a former NRA life member), I believe I am as disappointed as any Democrat by what I am seeing in Washington today. The White House and Congress are not guided by any conservative thinking or traditional belief system. It is not the good of the economy or the safety of the people that guides them. It is not about America being first; they are giving away our leading place in the world to China and have an as-yet-unexplained relationship with Russia.

If White House Destroys The State (As Desired), What Does That Mean For Solar, Wind,…

As noted in an article earlier today, Steve Bannon reportedly said in 2013: “Lenin wanted to destroy the state, and that’s my goal too. I want to bring everything crashing down, and destroy all of today’s establishment.” He apparently described himself as a Leninist to Ronald Radosh, an adjunct fellow at the Hudson Institute. There seems to be a lot of evidence Bannon was telling the truth in that case.
