Trump is quickly racking up the worst record on the environment since Reagan

In 1906, President Theodore Roosevelt, a progressive Republican by his own definition, promoted the passage through Congress of the Antiquities Act, permitting him and future Presidents to utilize their executive powers to create or expand National Monuments, preventing the mining, drilling or logging of wide swaths of land on the American continent, and preserving those areas of natural beauty for future generations of Americans to enjoy.
Since TR, we have had 18 other Presidents through the end of the administration of President Barack Obama, and the Antiquities Act has been used by all but three of those Presidents—Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, and George H. W. Bush. Additionally, limited application of the law has occurred under Gerald Ford and George W. Bush. Interestingly, all five were Republican Presidents.
The Presidents, both Democrats and Republicans, from TR through Dwight D. Eisenhower all applied the act in double digit numbers, Republican Presidents, including TR (18), William Howard Taft (16), Warren G. Harding (10), Calvin Coolidge (19), Herbert Hoover (19), and Eisenhower (15) together issued 97 Monument proclamations, while Democrats Woodrow Wilson (18), Franklin D. Roosevelt (36), and Harry Truman (12) together had 66 such events. Single digit totals for John F. Kennedy (8) and Lyndon B. Johnson (5) made the Democratic total a competitive total of 79.
But then, suddenly, Republican Presidents stopped creating National Monuments (though Gerald Ford expanded three). Nixon, Reagan and the first Bush: zero. George W. Bush added just 8.
At the same time, Democratic Presidents Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama became the true advocates of the tradition of TR, with Carter having 17 such designations, Clinton 22, and Obama the grand total of 34, more than any President except FDR. Altogether, Democratic Presidents have taken action in the past 40 years a total of 73 times, which added to earlier Democratic Presidents, means Democrats have contributed a total of 152 designations in the years since 1906, through the Obama Presidency’s end, about 60 percent of the entire Presidential actions.

Donald Trump’s unhinged late night Twitter meltdown reveals he knows he’s a goner

Donald Trump tends to post most of his tweets, and for that matter most of his Twitter meltdowns, early in the morning. It’s par for the course for Trump to begin tweeting angry toxic dishonest garbage at around 7:30am eastern time each day. When Trump occasionally begins tweeting late at night, the result is usually a rant for the ages. On Thursday night, Trump’s Twitter meltdown late on Thursday night was so jarring, it revealed that he knows he’s a goner.

Trump initially tried to keep his rant on focus, tweeting about the newly unveiled Republican tax plan. He misspelled Capitol Hill as “Capital Hill” but beyond that, he sounded rational. But once he was on Twitter, he couldn’t help himself. He began falsely accusing Hillary Clinton of having “illegally” rigged the Democratic primary race, before tweeting this: “This is real collusion and dishonesty. Major violation of Campaign Finance Laws and Money Laundering – where is our Justice Department?”

That’s right, Donald Trump is now formally accusing Hillary Clinton of “money laundering” while providing no evidence whatsoever. From his tweet, it’s not even clear that he knows what money laundering is. But it is a sign that when his campaign chairman Paul Manafort was arrested this week on money laundering charges, it sent a panicked cold shiver down his spine. Trump must have figured out that because his own financial scams are similar to the kind of scams that Manafort was just busted for, he’s going down for money laundering himself.

So now we know that Donald Trump thinks he’s going down for money laundering. As always, his reckless obsession with Hillary Clinton has helped to give him away. After Trump is ousted from office and they eventually come to arrest him, the odds are strong that he’ll be tweeting toxic garbage about Hillary as they take his phone and slap the handcuffs on him.

¿Cómo fue que Donald Trump logró la candidatura presidencial en primer lugar? Sí estoy al tanto de cómo Hillary Clinton lo logró, más aún por lo controversial que fue con los simpatizantes de Sanders.
