Gov. Rick Scott’s anti-science purge begins: State employee banned for uttering ‘climate change’ A Florida state employee has been reprimanded and told not to come to work after Gov. Rick Scott’s (R) administration banned the use of the terms “climate change” and “global warming.” Earlier this month, reports said that officials in the Scott administration ordered Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) administrators not to use the terms in documents or meetings because they asserted that the climate science behind global warming was not a “true fact.” More

Kellyanne Conway finally admitted the truth over the weekend: The Trump administration is trafficking in "alternative facts." Translation: lies, lies, and more lies.
Donald Trump's distorted worldview that he was elected by a landslide, his inauguration crowd was massive, he was maybe the first to hold a Lincoln Memorial inaugural concert, and the media has completely misrepresented his posture toward the CIA is all verifiable garbage—the rantings of a madman who is completely and likely permanently disconnected from the planet the rest of us inhabit.
And Trump's press secretary, Sean Spicer, rushed into his first turn at the podium Saturday brandishing his truthless leader's unhinged beliefs like a loaded gun.
"This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period," Spicer said, contradicting all available data.
If the facts had been roaming around Fifth Avenue, they would surely have been gunned down.
Look, these are the biggest bunch of loon bags to ever haunt the White House halls. Yes, that matters, but it no longer deserves or requires informed questions to reveal it. Jay Rosen at PressThink has a better idea: #sendtheinterns.
Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Hypocritville) is incensed that Democrats are slowing down the confirmation of popular vote loser Donald Trump's CIA pick, Mike Pompeo. Mr. Cotton, meet Sen. Tom Cotton:
In early 2014, after decades of government and nonprofit work that reflected a passion for public service, Cassandra Butts got a reward — or so she thought.
Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham are setting up their next big cave to Donald Trump and their Republican leadership by calling for a bill requiring congressional approval before Trump could lift sanctions on Russia. This latest bit of “no, really, we’re getting tough” posturing comes just as McCain and Graham announced their support for Trump’s secretary of state nominee, Rex Tillerson, support about which McCain previously said “there’s also a realistic scenario that pigs fly.” So take the congressional-approval-for-lifting-sanctions move with several shakers of salt.
McCain and Graham are teaming up with Democrats Chuck Schumer and Ben Cardin on this.
“We need more sanctions against Russia.
Late on Friday, a three-judge federal court ruled that a dozen state legislative districts in Alabama violated the constitution and instructed the legislature to redraw them—an order that could ultimately affect many more districts that neighbor the illegally drawn seats. Republican lawmakers, who control the legislature, had intentionally packed black voters into a handful of majority-black districts in order to dilute their influence in adjacent seats.
The court found that the the GOP’s scheme violated the Voting Rights Act, which requires that states create districts where communities of color can elect representatives of their choice.
Donald Trump finally found his way inside a church, attending a prayer service at the Washington National Cathedral. The interfaith service is a presidential tradition and a clearly uncomfortable and fidgety Trump sat in the front row with this family, next to lead phony evangelical Mike Pence and family. After all, would Jesus be working overtime to take away health care and enact laws to discriminate?
But, back to the topic at hand.
