1. How so? A "one national program rule" sounds pretty pro-Trump to me. Outdoing her husband? pffft

To me this is more consistent with MF45's agenda than undermining.

This GOP will happily give up states rights when it's in power, for anything Trump says or wants regardless of all teh court battles that ensue. And whether courts overrule Trump or not, this propaganda won't stop.

If anything, she's joining Trump in undermining CA as a symbol of making America great again. It's to embolden their embattled Republicans, drag down CA's national status. Which ain't happenin'.

Am I missing something about what self harming means? To climate change and science deniers, self harm is worth it every step of the way of the primrose path.

2. He's talking about state's rights. Something that was a staple striking point for Republicans.

Now they want to brush it away because California followed it's own path to innovate and solve it's pollution problem.

3. Right. So she's not undermining what they don't care about to begin with, which I noted above.

4. if you think this undermines the GOP, you're making the mistake of thinking of them as ideologues

The right wing does not run on ideology, it runs on us-vs-them. The ideology of the moment is whatever favors their idea of "real" Americans over those who are not in that group.

This is why the right wing is so vulnerable to being pulled into fascism. The appeal of fascism is that it will give your culture an edge over other cultures. And that's exactly what the conservative base wants. They want America's traditional white, christian, patriarchal, gun-toting culture to have supremacy over other cultures, foreign and domestic. Ideology is only a tool to gain advantages, not an end in itself. We don't notice this because so many of their pundits play very convincing ideologues on TV, but even they are mostly not ideologues, as can be seen in their routine level of hypocricy. Ideological arguments are only tools to advance one culture and its members over other cultures -- to maintain as much privilege as possible for members of the conservative base at the expense of those who don't qualify for membership in the group. In that light, this move is not the least bit inconsistent with anything else in Trumpism, or for that matter in Reaganism.

8. Up yours, Mrs. Turtle.

If you and your hubby shove your heads just a little further up Trump's ass you'll asphyxiate yourselves.

9. States rights are just for screwing minorities, not for helping the environment

12. Yo Mama. K&R. Brian Cohen's channel is a gold mine! Kudos to you!

I was initially turned off by this video's intro, but through YouTube, got linked to another because I'd seen a portion of this one. This guy is good, really good. He speaks in a language that everyone, but especially a younger audience, would understand.

Thank you. Thank you!
