Trump Has Been Neutered, But We Can Still Beat The Deep State
Whatever his intentions were when he was sworn in, Trump has plainly been taken to the veterinarian by America’s unelected power establishment and is now sitting in the backyard wearing a cone collar and wondering where his balls went.

More Signs Emerge That Russiagate Is Dying – Caitlin Johnstone – Medium
As we discussed last week, Russiagate is on its way out the door. Savor its smell my corporate liberal brothers and sisters, because these are the last whiffs you’ll ever get of its powerfully addictive musk. His neoconservative policy switcheroos on Syria, Russia, China, NATO and WikiLeaks prove that Trump has fully bent the knee to America’s unelected power establishment, so there’s no need for the #TrumpRussia psy-op anymore.

Trump Backtracker Findings | April 2017 Update Climate Advisers
President Obama left behind a rich climate legacy. The suite of policies moved forward during his administration put the United States on the path to meet both its 2020 and 2025 emissions targets.

In the “best case” scenario,1 emissions would have decreased by up to 24 percent from 2005 levels by 2025.
In the “worst-case” scenario,2 the United States would have achieved 16 percent emissions reductions, a little over half of the pledged total.
Full attainment of the U.S. nationally determined contribution (NDC) would rest on the ability and will of the incoming administration to pick up President Obama’s mantle and push forward additional climate measures.

The November 2016 election of Donald J. Trump to the Presidency of the United States left many in the environmental community scrambling to understand the implications of a Republican executive for President Obama’s climate legacy – and, more concretely, the U.S. emissions trajectory. he Trump Effect could mean more than half a gigaton more climate pollution in 2025. That’s about the same as the emissions from electricity use for 60% of the homes in the entire country.
Of the Obama 2015 climate goals, a whopping 332 million metric tons (mmt) of climate pollution cuts in 2025 – or 55%– currently come from policies that we judge highly vulnerable.
229 million tons, or 38%, come from moderately vulnerable policies. And just 7% of potential emissions cuts, or 45 mmt, are relatively safe and just rated “vulnerable.”

Back to School: Campus leaders rethink their role in the age of Trump | CNN Politics | April 28, 2017
Brian C. Rosenberg, the president of Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota, says he typically remains quiet on controversial issues to avoid inhibiting any points of view. But this time he felt compelled to write a searing letter to the community calling the order "cowardly and cruel," and a "shameful moment in our country's history."
