In other news, the Chamber of Commerce is warning Trump not to shut down the government over his fantasy border wall. "It’s usually not a strategy that has historically worked out very well,” Chamber of Commerce vice president Neil Bradley says. No shit?

Meanwhile, Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen says the Trump regime should not repeal regulations implemented after the 2008 financial crisis.

Yellen said that in all, the tighter regulations, far from stifling economic growth, had actually helped the economy in part by making the financial system safer.

“Our more resilient financial system is better prepared to absorb, rather than amplify, adverse shocks, as has been illustrated during periods of market turbulence in recent years,” she said.

Finally, Hurricane Harvey has strengthened to a category 3 storm with 120 mph winds. The storm is expected to make landfall tonight. The official National Weather Service forecast is now calling for as much as 30 inches of rain in some locations, with some models anticipating even more than that. The storm is expected to linger over the coast for up to 4 or 5 days, hence the massive amount of rainfall expected.

Trump is leaving town again right after his three-week vacation.

Update... As of 7 pm, Harvey is now a Category 4 storm

    It matters not that the Obama era regulations have clearly and obviously protected the economy from the worst predations that Wall Street and the financial sector has to offer. The socialist Kenyan usurper must be rebuked at every opportunity.

    (God, I hope Trump’s voters get hit the hardest if this causes the to economy crash and burn. AGAIN!!)

    “Good luck to everybody.” You’re on your own, suckers!”

    So while one of the states that helped to inflict Trump’s staggering incompetence and corruption on those of us smart enough to have known better is under threat of natural disaster, the asshole himself is off to waste more of the Secret Services money on luxury toilets, golf carts and only frelling Cthulhu knows what else. I would call this poetic if I didn’t know that Texas was also populated by good people who wanted nothing to do with the Trump clown show.

    Have a good weekend everybody.
