Hours after President Donald Trump delivered a speech Monday afternoon at the White House touting his administration’s environmental record, U.S. Secretary of Energy Rick Perry appeared on Fox News to defend the president and push back on his far-left critics.The discussion began with Fox News host Martha MacCallum haranguing the former Texas governor about the president’s otherwise non-controversial decision to talk up his administration’s environmental record.“The fact that the president was even giving a speech on the environment raised a lot of eyebrows and had sort of critics going, ‘Really? We don’t think this is really a priority for the administration.’ What do you say?”

Where this whole discussion goes entirely off the rails is the unstated, but understood, yet totally bogus, wrong and non-factual, conflation of carbon dioxide with "pollutants". CO2 is NOT a pollutant in any normal sense, like unburned hydrocarbons, soot, sulfur dioxide, and other actual pollutants. CO2 is gobbled up by all green plants and turned into green growth and OXYGEN is set free for humans to breathe. Natural gas shouldn't be burned in central power plants, it should be reserved for industrial and home applications where it is uniquely capable. Use coal and nuclear power for central power generation, and add in the cleanup technologies needed for coal, which can be effectively and economically done on a huge scale of power plants, but NOT on small scale like homes and most industries.

Therein lies the crux of the matter...his critics, on any subject, have no clue...they just keep working their mouths before engaging their brains, or maybe their neural transmissions are stuck in neutral...

Republicans build nice things... "rats" make a mess. Look at urban jungles like Chicago, infested with Demonrats, then take one look at Mar-a-Lago.

President Trump scored a judicial victory as the Senate confirmed another of his nominees for the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.Despite objections from California’s Democratic Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris, the party line vote of 53-45 confirmed attorney Daniel Bress to the historically liberal court on Tuesday, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.There were no votes cast by 2020 candidates, New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, and neither Harris nor Feinstein returned a blue slip on the nomination.“Bress is not a part of California’s legal community,” the pair of California lawmakers said in a statement.

Department of Labor secretary Alex Acosta defended his role in a deal with accused pedophile Jeffrey Epstein during a press conference Wednesday amid calls he should resign from the Trump administration.Acosta argued that he actually strengthened the case against Epstein in Florida as opposed to watering it down, as some have accused him of doing. The deal, made in 2008, meant that Epstein pleaded guilty to solicitation of underage prostitutes in exchange for serving 13 months of jail time and registering as a sex offender.According to Acosta, the original charges against Epstein brought forth by state prosecutors would have ended with no jail time for the billionaire.

The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals dismissed an Emoluments Clause claim against President Trump on Wednesday, questioning whether the lawsuit was an “appropriate use of the courts.”“The District and Maryland’s interest in enforcing the Emoluments Clauses is so attenuated and abstract that their prosecution of this case readily provokes the question of whether this action against the President is an appropriate use of the courts, which were created to resolve real cases and controversies between the parties,” wrote Judge Paul Niemeyer, speaking for the court.This decision comes after officials in Maryland and Washington, DC attempted to sue the president for allegedly profiting from one of his name-branded hotels while

2020 hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) told activists at an event Monday that she supported pressuring Israel to, in their words, "end occupation" of Palestinian territories. In a video posted by the left-wing Jewish group IfNotNow on Twitter, two of its activists approached Warren for a picture—she poses for photos with anyone who wants them after campaign events—and introduced themselves as American Jews with a proposition for her. "We really love the way you're fighting corruption. We'd really love it if you also pushed the Israeli government to end occupation," one of the activists said. "Yes, yes. So I'm there," Warren said quickly. Warren then took a picture with the two activists.
