Stifling the US EPA January 24, 2017

A more than chilling effect on the function of the US Environmental Protection Agency has come to light – around the same time as Trump signed executive orders allowing for the resumption of Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines…

It was also reported on Tuesday that the Trump administration had instituted a media blackout at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and barred staff from awarding any new contracts or grants.

The Associated Press said emails sent to EPA staff since Trump’s inauguration on Friday detailed the specific prohibitions banning press releases, blog updates or posts to the agency’s social media accounts. The Trump administration has also ordered a “temporary suspension” of all new business activities at the department, including issuing task orders or work assignments to EPA contractors, according to the AP.

Four years of this? Though one thing is for sure, Trump knows his real base. And looks after it.

The schlock-and-awe blitzkreig of Trump’s first hundred days is now underway. The rebellion against it is growing, but Trump has his small hands on the levers of state power.

And in police news:

“Almost immediately after taking the oath of office as the 45th President of the United States, the Trump administration posted a statement on the White House website entitled, “Standing Up For Our Law Enforcement Community.”…
.
The Trump Administration will be a law and order administration.”

Not surprising considering the republicans are also trying to take the US out of the UN. Could this be a preliminary to a shutdown?
