Well what a day. Wonder what Junckers, Merkel & Schauble thinks of that?

Didn't think any of our lot had any guts but, early days yet.

May gives EU the "bird" to their "4 freedoms" :-)

Well as the USA is finding out all those cross border tunnels they filled to the border, but Mexico only blocked the entrance are back in use.
If you don't plug the whole length, they will reuse any you don't.

Good going, America!
Trump administration tells EPA to cut climate page from website: sources:
U.S. President Donald Trump's administration has instructed the Environmental Protection Agency to remove the climate change page from its website, two agency employees told Reuters, the latest move by the newly minted leadership to erase ex-President Barack Obama's climate change initiatives.

The employees were notified by EPA officials on Tuesday that the administration had instructed EPA's communications team to remove the website's climate change page, which contains links to scientific global warming research, as well as detailed data on emissions. The page could go down as early as Wednesday, the sources said.

"If the website goes dark, years of work we have done on climate change will disappear," one of the EPA staffers told Reuters, who added some employees were scrambling to save some of the information housed on the website, or convince the Trump administration to preserve parts of it.
The sources asked not to be named because they were not authorized to speak to the media. A Trump administration official did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The order comes as Trump's administration has moved to curb the flow of information from several government agencies who oversee environmental issues since last week, in actions that appeared designed to tighten control and discourage dissenting views.
The moves have reinforced concerns that Trump, a climate change doubter, could seek to sideline scientific research showing that carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels contributes to global warming, as well as the career staffers at the agencies that conduct much of this research.

Myron Ebell, who helped guide the EPA's transition after Trump was elected in November until he was sworn in last week, said the move was not surprising.
"My guess is the web pages will be taken down, but the links and information will be available," he said.
The page includes links to the EPA's inventory of greenhouse gas emissions, which contains emissions data from individual industrial facilities as well as the multiagency Climate Change Indicators report, which describes trends related to the causes and effects of climate change.

The Trump administration's recently appointed team to guide the post-Obama transition has drawn heavily from the energy industry lobby and pro-drilling think tanks, according to a list of the newly introduced 10-member team.

Trump appointed Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, a longtime foe of the EPA who has led 14 lawsuits against it, as the agency's administrator. The Senate environment committee held a tense seven-hour confirmation hearing for Pruitt last week. No vote on his nomination has been scheduled yet.

Oh look, we have such a despot on our side of the pond as well, wants to take the place of the UK in Europe. Does these things constantly, only then tells the world these people were Gulen lovers, Kurds, or IS, or a combination.
At least six journalists were charged with felony rioting after they were arrested while covering the violent protests that took place just blocks from President Trump’s inauguration parade in Washington on Friday, according to police reports and court documents.

The journalists were among 230 people detained in the anti-Trump demonstrations, during which protesters smashed the glass of commercial buildings and lit a limousine on fire.

The haste with which the lady went to heel is, without doubt, unseemly. Shame indeed.

Donald J. Trump
@realDonaldTrump

If U.C. Berkeley does not allow free speech and practices violence on innocent people with a different point of view - NO FEDERAL FUNDS?

Trump's reaction on UC Berkeley denying entry to right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos.

Early Thursday morning, President Donald Trump floated the possibility of withholding federal funds from UC Berkeley after students at the California school rioted on campus in response to a planned speech by conservative provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos.

The riots took place last Wednesday, forcing school officials to cancel the planned speech by the controversial Breitbart editor, who has used his celebrity to rail against everything from feminism to the liberal left’s fear of free speech. In response, POTUS took to Twitter to rail against the school’s “violence on innocent people.”
According to Berkeley’s research numbers, the school receives, “well over half a billion dollars in research and other support from external sources.” The school continues, “The federal government provided 55 percent of these funds, and California state agencies and other government sources, industry, and the nonprofit sector supplied the rest,” publishing this chart to demonstrate the federal dollars that aid the school in additional research each fiscal year.

I am expecting Trump to demand that UC Berkeley stops hoaxes like a search for extraterrestrials anytime now. He finds climate warming a hoax already, so why would he believe in aliens?

That's easily sorted just give Mr Trump two or three of Tim Leary's "sugar cubes" to stick in his coffee , he'll be fine , that's aslong as they didn't use them all up when they released seti V8 ( defo were on sumthing then !!) . Would warn him not to look in a mirror tho with his "tan" & hairstyle would be one f-ing bad trip ;-) hehe

edited coz i forgot the t in stick so it read sick ;-) time for a smoke o me thinks

I'm sure Rump is already looking at ways to kill BOINC. After all, it produces scientific numbers that put lies to his good book beliefs.

Seriously, I hate it when the ultra-right anarchists show up at a peaceful protest and false flag* it into a riot.

*Russia, Putin method.
