Huddled Masses

In other news, a group of capital investors who manage more than $34 trillion in assets are calling on members of the G-20 to take urgent action on climate change because climate change is the mother of all global financial risks.

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court has affirmed the right of federal agencies to make their own interpretations about federal law when writing explicit regulations. This is unexpected good news, because a ruling in the other direction could have rendered the EPA and other regulators completely impotent.

Finally, Trump says his war with Iran would be over very quickly and wouldn't involve ground troops.

“Well, I hope we don’t,” he said when asked if the United States was going to war. “We’re in a very strong position if something should happen. We’re in a very strong position. It wouldn’t last very long, I can tell you that.”

“I’m not talking boots on the ground,” Trump added. “I’m not talking, we’re going to send a million soldiers. I’m just saying if something would happen, it wouldn’t last very long.”

I know I've heard this somewhere before.

    I doubt if even people who manage $34 trillion would be enough to make Republican legislators admit that their political party is an out of control beast.

    At least some checks on power are holding. Barely….

    So trump is yet another Republican who thinks the United States can start a war without it turning into a war. What a shock. Certainly didn’t see that coming a million friggen miles away.
