Full Immunity

In other news, the Trump regime is reportedly preparing to cancel visas and kick thousands of Chinese college students out of the country based on unsubstantiated accusations that they're all spies.

Trump's rhetorical war with China is going to get uglier the closer we get to the election.

Meanwhile, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden says Trump's desire resume nuclear weapons testing as a way of restarting negotiations is "delusional."

“This is delusional,” he said. “A resumption of testing is more likely to prompt other countries to resume militarily significant nuclear testing, and undermine our nuclear nonproliferation goals,” including those aimed at North Korea and Iran.

That's what I said.

Finally, the Trump regime is about to finalize a repeal of Obama-era restrictions against killing animals in their own dens.

The Trump administration is finalizing rules that will allow hunters in Alaska’s national preserves to shoot bears and wolves, and their cubs and pups, while they are in their dens.

The National Park Service is reversing regulations written by the Barack Obama administration, which banned some of the much-criticized practices for hunting the predators, including luring bears with food like doughnuts.

Jesse Prentice-Dunn, policy director for the Center for Western Priorities, called the rule change “amazingly cruel” and said it was “just the latest in a string of efforts to reduce protections for America’s wildlife at the behest of oil companies and trophy hunters”. [...]

Peter Christian, a spokesman with the park service in Alaska, told the Anchorage Daily News that the changes will allow hunters to draw black bears, including cubs and females with cubs, out of their dens with artificial light; to use bait to attract black and brown bears; to hunt wolves and coyotes during the denning season and to shoot caribou while they are swimming or from motorboats.

If you shoot animals from aboard a fucking motorboat, you are not a hunter. You are the one who deserves to be shot from a motorboat.
