Trump downsizes agencies by forced moves: BLM and Department of Agriculture. The article says that Reno might get more BLM staff. The new BLM HQ is in Grand Junction Colorado, a beautiful town of 60,000.

I'm generally in favor of government agencies spreading their budget around by having offices in smaller towns. But given the EIS process, I'd like to see the Winnemucca BLM office moved to Reno.

It almost feels like seeing an elderly person at the customer service desk in Walmart and they're sending thousands of dollars to a scammer overseas---and nothing you say to them will convince them they are getting scammed.

^ Trump has AG Barr and Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh who believe in an imperial presidency. We will see if John Roberts wants to be known in history for that.

We should have never gone into Syria in the first place. It was not authorized by Congress and ISIS only has tangential links to al Qaeda, not enough to justify using the 2001 or 2002 AUMF authorities to deploy U.S. armed forces into hostilities.

Syria is a powder keg with several major militaries all operating in close proximity where the chances for an accidental exchange of fire remain incredibly high. Do you think the Syria mission is worth risking a world war or nuclear exchange with Russia? I, for one, don't.

We shouldn't have deployed to Syria then. And we shouldn't be there now.

If we gave a shit about the Kurdish people, we would have prevented Saddam Hussein from ethnically cleansing them at the end of the first Gulf War. If we gave a shit about the Kurds, then we would have granted them a partitioned homeland after the second Gulf War.

Let me be clear, U.S. policymakers don't give a flying fuck about the Kurds.

We shouldn't let our disgust for the current commander-in-chief, nor the false pleas from neo-conservatives to "save the Kurds," get in the way of ending an unauthorized, unconstitutional, and illegal deployment of U.S. armed forces to Syria.

Just In from “Justice”...

https://www.cnbc.com/2019/10/08/justice ... -info.html

“ Those materials were considered the “roadmap” that led to Nixon’s expected impeachment that year. Nixon ended up resigning after before he was formally impeached.

“Wow,” Howell said after the hearing in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., that the Justice Department now disagreed with Sirica’s ruling.

“As I said, the department is taking extraordinary positions in this case,” Howell said.
