    Both of Trumps appointed Environmental Protection Agency Directors (Scott Pruitt/Andrew Wheeler) are fossil-fuel corporatists who are gutting the EPA.


    Unless some Senate Republicans break ranks, this won't be a trial it will be a cover-up.

    Very interesting when you look at a picture of those countries contributing 2% and above into NATO. Barring the UK, practically every country that borders Russia are 2% and above.

    1) 3 countries border Russia.
    2) Thier economies are so small that achieving 2% is not hard.

    Why not? It is % of GDP. Estonia has a GDP of 25 billion. So 2% is 500 million. That is not even 5 F35s.

    True, easy to forget. Turkey also if you factor in the Black Sea.

    Trump's saying we don't need to live like stoneage people to have clean air and water. He's pretty good when it comes to that sort of thing. Look at the people fleeing California where they turn off your power when the wind blows too hard.
