Money is seen in the back pocket of @realDonaldTrump as he boards Air Force One in Mountain View, California.
He just came from a meeting with oil company executives?
tips for strippers?

Also, he has asked if he's allowed to appoint himself Treasurer of the United States so all the money has his name on it. Barring that he wants to EO a new law that says all the money has to have Presidential Signatures.

Probably not, Gregg. Haven’t you heard that old adage: The size of the tip is commensurate with the size of the john’s johnson?

The denomination is too big.

The White House has stripped California of its right to set its own vehicle emissions standards and banned other states from setting similar rules.

I recommend watching Episode 1 Season 1 of Dirty Money on Netflix to really get a sense of why this is so horrible.
Yes and no. Yes its horrible but no because major design changes in powertrains take 8-10 years to do, we're already spent the money on the rules through 2025 MY and we ain't gonna change jack because Emperor Cheeto says so, we know that any repeal of all the emissions and CAFE standards are going to be at best, something that only will last until President Squirrrel Brains is dragged from office.
And Emperor Cheeto expects to receive praise from the entire auto industry for doing this. Who is telling him this is a good idea?

For the time being, Donald Trump does not seem to want to know about a military retaliatory strike against Iran. Instead, he relies on his already failed recipe: a tightening of sanctions. Until the next Iranian inferno, it's only a matter of time.
Christian Weisflog, Beirut
18.9.2019, 20:14 clock

It was the largest attack on the core region of global oil supply since the Gulf War in 1991. With 7 cruise missiles and 18 drones, the aggressor on Saturday succeeded in halving Saudi oil production. Whether directly or indirectly, there can only be one person responsible for this high-precision operation: Iran. The Saudi military also came to this conclusion. No doubt Tehran is behind the attacks, a spokesman said Wednesday in Riyadh. He presented thereby debris of the weapon systems used. The cruise missiles should be a variant of the Iranian Ya-Ali missile. These would only have a range of 700 kilometers and therefore could not have been fired by the Houthi rebels in Yemen, said the spokesman. The attacks were carried out from the north.

«Sign of weakness»

The results of the Saudi investigation coincide with American findings. Nevertheless, President Donald Trump does not seem to seriously consider a military retaliatory strike. According to media reports , military leaders on Monday pointed out to the chief in the White House various possibilities of a harsh reaction. But none really wanted Trump, and he asked for more options. On Wednesday, he finally announced on Twitter a "substantial" tightening of the already tough economic sanctions against Tehran, without going into detail.

The Final Lesson Donald Trump Never Learned From Roy Cohn
The unrepentant political hitman who taught a younger Trump how to flout the rules didn’t get away with it forever.


Roy Cohn, who has been described by people who knew him as “a snake,” “a scoundrel” and “a new strain of son of a bitch,” is the subject of a new documentary out this week from producer and director Matt Tyrnauer. It’s an occasion to once again look at Cohn and ask how much of him and his “savage,” “abrasive” and “amoral” behavior is visible in the behavior of the current president. Trump, as has been well-established, learned so much from the truculent, unrepentant Cohn about how to get what he wants, and he pines for Cohn and his notorious capabilities still. Trump, after all, reportedly has said so himself, and it’s now the name of this film: “Where’s My Roy Cohn?”

What Cohn could, and did, get away with was the very engine of his existence. The infamous chief counsel for the red-baiting, Joseph McCarthy-chaired Senate subcommittee in the 1950s, Cohn was indicted four times from the mid-’60s to the early ’70s—for stock-swindling and obstructing justice and perjury and bribery and conspiracy and extortion and blackmail and filing false reports. And three times he was acquitted—the fourth ended in a mistrial—giving him a kind of sneering, sinister sheen of invulnerability. Cohn, Tyrnauer’s work reaffirms, took his sanction-skirting capers and twisted them into a sort of suit of armor.

It’s the past quarter or so, though, of Tyrnauer’s film that is perhaps most salient at this stage of Trump’s first term. It deals with the less discussed but arguably much more trenchant lesson of Cohn’s life—not his decades of dark-arts untouchability but his brutal comeuppance. Cohn did not, in the end, elude the consequences of his actions. He could not, it turned out, get away with everything forever. He was a braggart of a tax cheat, and the Internal Revenue Service closed in; he was an incorrigibly unethical attorney, and he finally was disbarred; and only six weeks after that professional disgrace, six months shy of 60 years old, Cohn was dead of AIDS.

Ya know, I have read that Trump's debt is indexed to the Fed rate, so every time they drop the target rate he saves millions in interest charges.

I'm willing to accept the argument that he's deliberately wrecking the economy to save his business money. The most convincing case against that idea is that he isn't smart enough to have figured it out.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics ... ssion=true
A New York City judge has ordered that President Trump sit for videotaped testimony in a lawsuit brought by protesters who say they were assaulted by Trump’s security guards during the 2016 campaign.

The Bronx-based judge, Doris M. Gonzalez, wrote that Trump’s testimony is “indispensable” to the trial, which is scheduled to begin Thursday. She wrote he must therefore be examined by videotape before then, though Trump is likely to ask for a delay.

The protesters argue Trump, his campaign and business should be held liable for the actions of security guards who were working for the company. They say, even if Trump didn’t directly order the guards to act, he had control over their actions because they were his employees and his campaign trail rhetoric gave them the impression that violence would be condoned.

Doesn't look like she got the memo that Bill Barr says Trump cannot be prosecuted, investigated, interrogated, or made to survive on just one piece of chocolate cake under any circumstances, he is the Emperor Sheeto, and with apologies to Henry II , "We can fathom no action a King could take that might offend the Crown."

A few years later he had a crew from Homeland Security (Normandy Office) go and kill a Priest, and it was all good. :thumbs:

President Trump is en route to Houston for the “Howdy, Modi” event w/ Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

I’ll be in his motorcade from the base to NRG stadium, where he’s scheduled to speak at 11 a.m. (tho he’s running late).

@NPR
says he may survey storm damage as well.

I'm still trying to catch up on all that happened while I was sleeping and commuting. I know he's not attending the UN climate change thingy, but did I hear it correctly that the seminar on faith and discrimination he's attending is being put on by Trump himself? Wouldn't it be fun if nobody showed :daydream:
