How will climate change affect Trump's numerous coastal properties?

You would think that might matter to him. Hell, it might even be a reason to force him NOT to divest.


“I don’t see how this town is going to defeat the water,” said Brent Dixon, a resident of Miami Beach who plans to move north and away from the coast in anticipation of worsening king tides, the highest predicted tide of the year. “The water always wins.”

These concerns have taken on a new urgency since the presidential election of Donald J. Trump, who has long been a skeptic of global warming, claiming in 2012 that it was a concept “created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing noncompetitive.”

A real estate developer, Mr. Trump is also the owner of several South Florida properties, including Mar-a-Lago, a 20-acre site that stretches between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway in Palm Beach.

Mr. Trump’s recent selection of Myron Ebell to lead his Environmental Protection Agency transition team intensified these worries in Florida and among many climate scientists. Mr. Ebell has helped lead the charge against the scientific consensus that global warming exists and is caused by people.

Pat McCrory, North Carolina Governor, Concedes After Acrimonious Race

Source: NY Times

RALEIGH, N.C. — Ending an acrimonious stalemate that dragged on for nearly a month, Gov. Pat McCrory, a Republican, conceded in his bid for re-election here on Monday, clearing the way for the ascension of his challenger, the Democrat Roy Cooper, and giving the national Democratic Party a rare cause for celebration.

Mr. Cooper, the state attorney general, declared victory on election night, but Mr. McCrory’s allies lodged election challenges in dozens of North Carolina counties, enraging Democrats who accused Republicans of being sore losers, or worse, in one of 2016’s closest statewide races.

Most of the challenges proved to be of little consequence, however. And by Monday, as partial results of a recount of more than 90,000 votes that Republicans had demanded in Durham County showed no significant change in the results, Mr. McCrory — whose one term was buffeted by nationwide anger over a law he signed that curbed anti-discrimination protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people — had little choice but to admit defeat.

Bye-bye Bathroom Boy!

Feinstein begging Bernie to screw her states' voters; and begging media to shut up about e-mail.

The desperation is palpable.

Potty Party Perverts Pass Piss Police Poison Pill

You read that right (and I hope you didn't injure your tongue).

Small-government/small-brain/small-penis Republicans are so eager to watch you pee that they are trying to pass a national Bathroom Bill:


Maddow's shameful lies last night

Rachel gleefully presented a giant stack of paper with a flourish, to demonstrate how hard it would have been to comply with the Department of State "Print and File" rule for e-mail retention.

She failed to mention one little detail. That rule only applies to the rare cases when a Department employee is forced to use a private e-mail channel. It was intended to discourage the use of private e-mail. Had Hillary used the normal government e-mail system, she would not have been bound by the print and file rule.

In a sense, it doesn't matter, because she flouted both rules, and numerous others anyway.

Hillary supporters in CA, NJ, SD, ND, MT, please ignore this message

Your candidate already won, so June 7th would be a great day to just chill. Have James bring the Lambo around, or hang out on the yacht and watch the stock ticker.

Bernie supporters: Your country needs you now, like never before. If Hillary gets the nomination, Trump wins, and the American Experiment is over. Democracy faces an unprecedented threat, and only you can save it. Be a hero. VOTE!

This is getting seriously scary


We still have a chance to save the general election, but the path is narrow.
