Trump EPA Denounced for 'Disgusting' Decision on Atrazine, Herbicide Tied to Birth Defects

Yes he did this on Friday. They are working overtime killing Americans.

One critic warned that "this decision imperils the health of our children and the safety of drinking water supplies across much of the nation."

The Trump administration alarmed environmental and public health advocates on Friday with the Environmental Protection Agency's decision to reauthorize the use of atrazine, an herbicide common in the United States but banned or being phased out in dozens of countries due to concerns about risks such as birth defects and cancer.

"Use of this extremely dangerous pesticide should be banned, not expanded," declared Nathan Donley, a senior scientist at the Center for Biological Diversity (CBD). "This disgusting decision directly endangers the health of millions of Americans."

"This decision imperils the health of our children and the safety of drinking water supplies across much of the nation," Donley added. "No one will be left untouched by the bad decision the EPA just made."

A little known fact is that atrazine is one of the many dangerous pesticides allowed on national wildlife refuges — places that are supposed to protect endangered wildlife and plants. It's also the most commonly detected pesticide in tap water. https://t.co/kH9pZsfMuM

trump just doesn't get it

he will never own the things that money just can't buy ... the things that liberals value above all the money in the world!!! Joe and Kamala, Democratic, Progressive values ... VOTE BLUE ALL THE WAY (FOR A BE BEST DAY, LOL)

trump hired m. flynn because President Obama fired him

and warned him not to hire him. trump could have chosen from plenty of repup slugs lined up for the job. But no, he had to have flynn. trump was obsessed with President Obama as stated in m.cohen's book. trump is so despicable that he knowingly hired a national security risk, warned of by an outgoing PRESIDENT and intelligence agencies. trump then turned around and hired flynn to be his National Security Advisor??? His spite put our country at risk from day one of his administration ... and before too.

Despite the red flags surrounding Flynn, his role within the Trump team only continued to grow. President Obama warned Trump about hiring Flynn as National Security Advisor in November 2016, and Flynn himself disclosed to the Trump transition team that he was under federal investigation due to his previous work lobbying for Turkish interests in January 2017. Nonetheless, he was soon sworn in as a national security adviser in late January 2017. During his short tenure, he worked to push a “Middle East Marshall Plan” to build civilian nuclear power plants with Russia throughout the Middle East, which would have “required lifting sanctions on Russia.”

Four days after Trump’s inauguration, the FBI interviewed Flynn about his calls with Kislyak. After hearing a readout of Flynn’s interview with the F.B.I., then-acting Attorney General Sally Yates and another senior D.O.J. official warned White House counsel Don McGahn in January 2017 that Flynn’s denial of discussions of sanctions with Kislyak may have been misleading, and that Flynn’s comments made him “vulnerable to Russian blackmail.


How could trump claim victory on election night when

clearly more than half the ballots will be missing from the tally boards on every TV screen. So many mail-in ballots. The votes totals would look puny and very suspicious for anyone to declare trump the winner. Red mirage? Yes a little, but the more I thought about it the more I thought how strange it would really be to see say, the State for Florida, for example, final votes tallied missing over 4.5 million votes from the totals on election night that were counted in 2016 on election night. No one would dare call that election for trump. ... he's gonna lose and it is going to be a slow one.

Biggest story flying under the radar today

Here the Treasury Dept., under mnuchin is calling derkarach, as russian spy! This is one of gulliani's top misinformation broker for this whole October surprise campaign. This is one of the big witnesses for the repubcomrads in the Senate and House that plan hearings. Who is behind the scenes that just sunk this ship before it sailed? Am I wrong or is someone behind the scenes working to shut this most horrible display of russian propaganda now metastasized into some hearing that was to be foisted against our election by our own? A grenade has been tossed into this sham investigation and a warning flag has been raised to all that dare proceed forward ... you too will tie yourself to a traitor. Hey is mnuchin the deep throat inside the admin? He is the worst anyhow, I give him no quarter but he did something really amazing here, if in fact it was he who declared derkarach to be a russian spy.

Yesterday, the Treasury Department officially labeled Andriy Derkach “an active Russian agent for over a decade, maintaining close connections with the Russian Intelligence Services.” The only person who even claims to find this remotely surprising is Rudy Giuliani, who has been working hand in glove with Derkach for months.

Reached by the New York Times, Giuliani pleads ignorance:

Mr. Giuliani said in an interview Thursday night that he “felt comfortable” meeting with Mr. Derkach “because there were no sanctions against him” at the time. While he acknowledged that he “didn’t do much investigation” of Mr. Derkach, Mr. Giuliani said: “I have no reason to believe he is a Russian agent. There is nothing I saw that said he was a Russian agent. There is nothing he gave me that seemed to come from Russia at all.” But he added, “How the hell would I know?”

Giuliani’s reason for not suspecting Derkach as a Russian agent is that he didn’t tell him he was a Russian agent. I am not an espionage expert, but I have watched enough spy shows to know that one of the basic practices of foreign agents is not to announce that they are foreign agents. If you have ever watched The Americans, you will notice that Phillip and Elizabeth Jennings do not go around wearing furry Russian hats and handing out KGB business cards. It’s basic tradecraft.

Now, the fact that Derkach was advancing Russian interests was hardly a secret. He had previously belonged to the Party of Regions. That’s the pro-Russian Ukrainian party that had been financed by Russia, and whose campaign had been managed by Paul Manafort in 2010. If Giuliani had any suspicions in his mind, he could have done a Google search and turned up


Just checking about paying your quarterly taxes

Did anyone get to file a tax return using a POST CARD, as trump promised? trump, mnuchin and big shnitz repubs promised us it would be so. With all the more important things happening this seems so small but just one more flimflam promise not kept from trump.

Magats, the "joax" is on you

I call BS on state polls with trump in hight 40's

That is where he was in 2016. Do they mean to tell me he has lost little to no no support during the last four years ?????? among .... Seniors, farmers, women, young voters and newly registered voters, all minority voters, military, suburban, college educated, unemployed, independents, Covid 19 effected .... The list of everyone who has dropped support includes just about every category including non-college educated white working class men. All I need to do is put my finger up in the wind and I know which way it blows. Polls BS. Secure the polls, report on that. Secure the votes, report on that. So please stop making this a horse race. It is a race to save our democracy, to elect the government we need to save our country and to do so we have to turn out the biggest turn out for Joe and Kamala the country has ever seen. Report on that. Not to say be over confident but be hopeful, like Barack said.... bring back the HOPE. We still own that.
That message did not end in 2016 either.
