Is the Trump transition team targeting members of the Energy Department who are working to save the planet? Kinda looks like it.

Courtesy of WaPo:  

Donald Trump’s transition team has issued a list of 74 questions for the Energy Department, asking agency officials to identify which employees and contractors have worked on forging an international climate pact as well as domestic efforts to cut the nation’s carbon output. 

The questionnaire requests a list of those individuals who have taken part in international climate talks over the past five years and “which programs within DOE are essential to meeting the goals of President Obama’s Climate Action Plan.

”Trump and his team have vowed to dismantle specific aspects of Obama’s climate policies, and Trump has questioned the reality of climate change. The questionnaire, which one Energy Department official described as unusually “intrusive” and a matter for departmental lawyers, has raised concern that the Trump transition team is trying to figure out how to target the people, including civil servants, who have helped implement policies under Obama.

Well it appears that Muslims and Mexicans are not the only groups that Trump wants identified and rounded up. It is also any scientists or Energy Department employees who might not be on board with raping the planet and ushering in a global climate Armageddon.

I am almost afraid to wake up tomorrow to find out about the next terrifying thing that Donald Trump is planning for our country.

    I would bet that President Obama and his team will NOT provide the individual names to Trump and his ilk. Why should they?

    Who is the next obvious Cheetolini target?

    Anyone whose facts get in the way of the latest Trump Tweets?

    " Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump 2h
    Can you imagine if the election results were the opposite and WE tried to play the Russia/CIA card. It would be called conspiracy theory!""

    "Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump 2h2 hours ago

    Unless you catch "hackers" in the act, it is very hard to determine who was doing the hacking. Why wasn't this brought up before election?"


    "Trump urges Russia to hack Clinton's email

    The campaign later attempted to clarify Trump's remarks, saying he wanted Russia to hand over the emails if they had them.

    Donald Trump invited Russia to hack Hillary Clinton's emails on Wednesday, asking one of America’s longstanding geopolitical adversaries to find “the 30,000 emails that are missing” from the personal server she used during her time as secretary of state.

    “I will tell you this, Russia: If you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” the Republican nominee said at a news conference in Florida. “I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.”

    This doofus and team is a nightmare!

  4. Few people will directly take him on because he sues. Even if he loses, it's too much money for most people to put on the table. Guerrilla warfare is needed. Share negative things about him on Facebook, contact your representatives, shut off Fox News everywhere.

  5. What fresh hell is this!

    As for O and his team not provided names, just wait a few days, Hair Donald and our minions will be forcing those names out of whoever they want.

    1. Is that what they intend to use waterboarding, excuse me, enhanced interrogation techniques for?

      Of course. Obama is a very intelligent man with a wonderful disposition. I was referring to this fool the fools have elected.

    I'm having a difficult time figuring out any differences between what Trump is doing and what Putin does, or what McCarthy did in the 1950s.

      drumpf Isis" only authority. It's the president making decisions about particular companies rather than working within the system to create laws that affect companies in the context of the rule of law."

      Tailgunner Joe wasn't looking to build hotels and resorts all over the world and make billions in some yooge scam...

    3. Well, McCarthy's motivation was to protect the U.S. and keep us safe by rooting out Communists he believed were embedded in our society. So as misguided as he was, his heart was in the right place, so to speak.

      Trump is just a narcissistic sociopath out for personal profit. He really doesn't give a shit about the country or the people as long as he's making money.

      Putin is all about power and control.

    Electoral College Electors Demand Intelligence Briefing On Russia Election Interference

    1. Now *that's* progress. It means some minds are open and some actually do care about who leads this country. They have doubts about the orange doofus' fitness to lead or if not, his ties to Russia. That's something.

      Of course, they are all from the blue states who are voting for Hillary anyway except for Suprun from Texas. But we already knew about him.

      All Donald has to do is disavow and repudiate and the Republicans are back on board. That's how they roll. He says the CIA are lying, they can't be trusted, they'e got nothing, they're partisan and the Deplorables just dismiss our Intelligence gathering and analyzing services. But of course, because they worship ignorance and disparage intelligence (of any kind).

    I don't know but should america have a camara with clear audio on the meetings today at ape tower? Seems odd and weird that someone not even declared president yet have made so many undocumented meetings without the American people to witness. This is not a private business it is our country

      You nailed it. Our country. But, I suspect he thinks it is HIS country now. After all, he has always worked in a company/corporation he owns, or his father. He has never worked for anyone else, and will not be able to realize that the president of the usa works FOR the people of the usa -- not the other way around. He is in this for HIS OWN reasons -- power, wealth accumulation, etc. He cares not one iota about any citizen of this country other than himself and probably a few family members. And, he has the really evil Bannon in his ear constantly. Just how fast can he be impeached? and, who is "on that" for all of us? That will be the hero in all of this -- the person who knows when Trump has done something that is reliably impeachable and pounces on it at the earliest possible moment.

    He is a fucking toddler playing in the sandbox. Unless you do EVERYTHING his way, he'll tantrum and throw you out of his sandbox. Look at the Boeing deal with Iran - he doesn't get a piece of it, so will ruin it, and maybe cause war.

    It is way beyond time for ALL the negatives to come out publicly. I would not fault Obama for invoking martial law until the body of the US can rid itself of the dRUMPf parasite. And I don't say that lightly...

    Look at all such megalomaniacs in history and see what horrible atrocities they caused.

  16. This story was mentioned on a couple of previous threads. If such a request by a takeover (this time it is not a transition) team is not usual and customary, then trump's team should be told to do their own damn research.

    That will at least buy time for the intended targets to try to find new positions.

    1. Anonymous9:05 AM

      Exactly -- let them read all the materials on the subject and figure out two things: First, who did the work on each issue; and, second, why that work is wrong and the person should be targeted for incompetence. Otherwise, leave everyone alone and assume that the country has been in the hands of competent people.

      If they want to go after individuals then they damn well better be smart enough to make a case that those individuals were wrong about what they did. And, we all know that the climate/science deniers would never be able to build such a case. How could they battle incompetency in a subject they know nothing about?

    Once again, it's going to be those who voted for him who suffer the worst if we don't try to curb climate change. The low-lying hillbilly havens of the South? Underwater. The obstinate right wingers in flyover country? Can you say "Supertornadoes"?

  18. Even CHINA recognizes Climate Change and they have moved fast in the last few years to address it. They've surpassed the U.S. in electricity generation through solar power. At least double what we produce. The U.S. is now FIFTH (at least) in the world. We trail Japan and Italy even. Germany and China are vying for #1.

    I guess this is one area where Donald Trump doesn't feel that American needs to be #1. After all, we were never great in green energy production so no need to try to be so "again."

    I'm afraid of what he's going to do to us with nuclear power on the one hand and de-regulation on the other. Building nuclear power plants with no regulations or oversight?

    We just shut down San Onofre due to problems. I'm glad it's gone. We have enough land that gets plenty of sun that we can easily replace nuclear with solar. It's cheaper too. Of course, if they're going to be selling off all that Federal land.....
