Profiteering Protection Agent

"Pruitt’s conduct as head of the EPA is beyond disappointing; it’s disgraceful. The list of indefensible actions grows each week: from sweetheart condo deals with the wife of an energy lobbyist, to unfair raises for favored appointees and apparent punishments for those who defy him, to a $43,000 soundproof phone booth.

These seemingly daily revelations dominate the headlines. But Pruitt’s failings in ethics and judgment are only part of a much larger problem: Pruitt has failed at the core responsibility of his job."

“If you don’t believe that deregulation is good and that pollution ought not to be checked and that billionaires ought to be able to pull strings secretly in government, this ought to be a pretty high priority.”

The Democrats have identified nine Koch-affiliated staff at the Department of the Interior, for example, which oversees more than 400m acres of federal public land that certain Koch operatives have long thought should be handed over to states and exploited.

A hypervelocity star with a Magellanic origin

Using proper motion measurements from Gaia DR2, we probe the origin of 26 previously known hypervelocity stars (HVSs) around the Milky Way.

We find that a significant fraction of these stars have a high probability of originating close to the Milky Way centre, but there is one obvious outlier. HVS3 is highly likely to be coming almost from the centre of the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC).

We need to burn the Democratic Party establishment to the ground.
Each and every one of these soulless corporate puppets should be hounded from office, incarcerated, and marched in front of a firing squad (after due process of course, charge them with treason). They have stolen our voices in government, have destroyed our voting rights, and turned us all into their slaves.

If you vote for these bribe taking corporate stooges, you are cutting your own throat. They don't represent you. They take bribes from corporations and the rich so that they can help them victimize you, the average American. They want to help the corporations take your house, all of your money, all of your rights, and force you to work for nothing in some private prison that you can't escape from. Make no mistake, this is their end goal, to enslave a captive workforce for corporations, who will then turn their attention to markets that have more spendable capital to steal, like China and Europe. According to these traitors, you and I, as American citizens, are destined to be the menial slave labor the oligarchs require, to be cast aside to starve and die when our usefulness has dissolved.
