Trump EPA fires at least five scientists on review board, considers replacing them with representatives of industries impacted by board's decisions.

Would be the perfect organization if it only had fewer smart people.
Courtesy of the New York Times:  

The Environmental Protection Agency has dismissed at least five members of a major scientific review board, the latest signal of what critics call a campaign by the Trump administration to shrink the agency’s regulatory reach by reducing the role of academic research. 

A spokesman for the E.P.A. administrator, Scott Pruitt, said he would consider replacing the academic scientists with representatives from industries whose pollution the agency is supposed to regulate, as part of the wide net it plans to cast. “The administrator believes we should have people on this board who understand the impact of regulations on the regulated community,” said the spokesman, J. P. Freire.

Gee, what a great idea.

Perhaps next they should have known terrorists advising Homeland Security on how to keep this country safe.

Or perhaps we should make sure that there are criminals seated on every jury to ensure that the individual on trial is being adequately represented.

And while we are at it perhaps we should allow folks who have colluded with foreign governments to undermine our democracy to be seated in the president's admini.....oh....that's right.

Well then, I guess a precedent has been set.

    OT", Obama warned Trump not to hire Flynn, whom the former President had fired in 2014 for temperament issues (and let’s face it, because everyone knew he was off).

    So what did Trump do? He not only re-hired Flynn, but elevated him to be his NSA."double corroboration that Trump knew about Flynn is a huge part of holding Trump directly responsible for his decision to hire and keep Flynn, and it’s also damning in terms of the entire Russian collusion narrative"

    That son of a bitch with the Retawwwded Sarah Palin smile sure is on his way to destroying our country in the name of money and to get even with President Obama.

    What is Congress waiting for to IMPEACH Trump? A nuclear war, environmental water or oil disaster?

      "Cultural anxiety" is nothing more than thinly disguised code for "we was upset about having a colored guy as President for eight years".

    Salon:
    Did Donald Trump try to threaten Sally Yates on Twitter? If so, he committed a felony

    President Donald Trump refuses to publicly accept that Russia is engaged in an ongoing cyber-war against the United States. To this day, he continues to insist that such allegations are a Democratic Party scam to undermine his Electoral College victory in November. That’s all. This alone should be evidence enough that Trump is desperately attempting to cover up the attacks as well as his alleged involvement by shutting his eyes, plugging his ears and yelling, “Not happening! Not happening! La-la-la-la-la!”

    The very fact that the president refuses to acknowledge even the aspects of the story that have nothing to do with him or his staffers, especially in the face of incontrovertible evidence showing, at the very least, that Russia interfered in the campaign season, gives us no choice but to presume that he’s up to something sinister on this front. Add to the mix the fact that every time Russia appears in the news, Trump starts flailing — he either struggles to change the subject, or he tweets something whiny about the “fake news,” or, as Rachel Maddow noticed recently, he simply ignores the question.

      In addition to possible violations of the PRA, Trump’s tweet about Sally Yates is very likely witness tampering, a felony under Title 18 of the U.S. Code. Trump, via Twitter, was clearly attempting to mute Yates’ testimony by accusing her of leaking classified information about Michael Flynn.

    The Russia-Trump collusion story is a total hoax, when will this taxpayer funded charade end?

    16 hours ago · Twitter

    $$$$$$$$$

    Talk about spending taxpayers money?

    "Can you believe that, with all of the problems and difficulties facing the U.S., President Obama spent the day playing golf. Worse than Carter,” Trump said in 2014.

    Trump said last August that if he became president, he wouldn’t have time for golf. "I'm going to be working for you, I'm not going to have time to go play golf," he said at an event in Virginia.

    "Donald Trump has zero worry about contradicting himself, because he does it all day long," said Douglas Brinkley, a presidential historian who has met with Trump. "He figures he can get away with it because he does it all the time. There is no worry about it. He says one thing and then does another, and his supporters don't hold it against him."

    I signed a petition about those firings yesterday. When I signed, there were already over 931,000 signatures (from one of the Democratic sites - DNC or DCCC or DLCC, etc.

    Why do Republicans hate their children and grandchildren so much that they would continue to deny the problems climate change is causing and the likely main cause?
