How Trump’s War on Regulation Is Trickle-Down Economics 14.8.2018 American Prospect
trickle-downers.jpg When Trump’s not blaming foreigners for everything that ails America, he’s blaming regulations. Last week, he even blamed regulations for the wildfires now ravaging California. They’re “made so much worse,” he  tweeted , “by the bad environmental laws which aren’t allowing massive amount[s] of readily available water to be properly utilized.” I have news for Trump. California’s tough environmental laws are among America’s (and the world’s) last bulwarks against climate change. And it’s climate change—not regulation—that’s wreaking havoc across California as well as much of the rest of the world.   Oh, and Californians are using water very carefully. Yet Trump is pushing in the opposite direction. He’s now proposing to let cars pollute more and to strip California of its right to set higher air-quality rules . It’s not just the environment. Trump is also gutting regulations that protect consumers, workers, investors, students, and children. The Trump regime is now contemplating a ...

West Hollywood City Council Approves Proposal To Permanently Remove Trump's Star 7.8.2018 Crooks Liars
The council cited vandalism concerns as well as Trump's atrocious record on immigration, women's rights, climate change, and the rest, as reasons for removal. If it's true that Chamber of Commerce would have final say that doesn't bode well for removal. They've never removed a star from the Hollywood Walk of Fame before.

Now Trump Is Planning to Destroy California's Anti-Pollution Policies 24.7.2018 Little Green Footballs
A recent study by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration found that air pollution in Los Angeles has declined dramatically over the past few decades, thanks to California's emission control policies. So of course, the Trump gang is now planning to destroy those policies and bring back the bad old days, one of which you see pictured above. Yes, it really was that bad. The Trump administration will seek to revoke California’s authority to regulate automobile greenhouse gas emissions -- including its mandate for electric car sales -- in a proposed revision of Obama-era standards, according to three people familiar with the plan. The proposal, expected to be released this week, amounts to a frontal assault on one of former President Barack Obama’s signature regulatory programs to curb greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change. It also sets up a high-stakes battle over California’s unique ability to combat air pollution and, if finalized, is sure to set off a protracted courtroom ...
