'Trump is killing his own supporters' - even White House insiders know it

Lloyd Green writes in Sunday's The Guardian:

On Sunday, initially at least, there was no White House briefing on the president’s public schedule. But the bad news kept coming. Coronavirus deaths continued to climb and reports of the heartland being unprepared for what may be on its horizon continued to ricochet around the media.

In the words of one administration insider, to the Guardian: “The Trump organism is simply collapsing. He’s killing his own supporters.”

Trump is telling NFL owners he wants the season to start on time. He is disregarding Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advice on wearing facemasks in public. And he is touting untested coronavirus cures live on national TV.


If Trump's (in)actions result in fewer Trump voters, well, I'd be lying if I said that that would sadden me.

Trump signs executive order to support moon mining, tap asteroid resources

Source: Space.com

By Mike Wall 5 hours ago

The water ice and other lunar resources that will help the United States establish a long-term human presence on the moon are there for the taking, the White House believes.

President Donald Trump signed an executive order today (April 6) establishing U.S. policy on the exploitation of off-Earth resources. That policy stresses that the current regulatory regime — notably, the 1967 Outer Space Treaty — allows the use of such resources.

This view has long held sway in U.S. government circles. For example, the United States, like the other major spacefaring nations, has not signed the 1979 Moon Treaty, which stipulates that non-scientific use of space resources be governed by an international regulatory framework. And in 2015, Congress passed a law explicitly allowing American companies and citizens to use moon and asteroid resources.

The new executive order makes things even more official, stressing that the United States does not view space as a "global commons" and sees a clear path to off-Earth mining, without the need for further international treaty-level agreements.

I'm a total space nerd, but an executive order does not equal funding. Also, I've a feeling the resources Trump wants to focus on are very...carbony.

So, tell me again why we need another Biden-Sanders debate?

I muted Bernie

I missed Bill Maher two nights ago. (It wasn't listed, FFS!) But I caught the repeat a a few hours ago, and watched the whole show. But when Sen Sanders (I-Vt) came on, I turned the sound off until Bill's indulgent humoring of a now-irrelevant loser was over. Hey, if I wanted to listen to a delusional fool who can't acknowledge reality, I'd proceed to the Genuine Article:
