What Trump’s latest executive order actually means for the protestors at Standing Rock and the building of the pipeline

This would be a huge blow for the people who fought for more than seven years against the project, a transnational pipeline that would extend from Canada to the Gulf Coast. The venture was killed by President Obama in 2015 because it would contribute to climate change and deter American efforts to reach a global deal addressing this issue.

The US National Science Foundation shared this vine showing how scientists actually sample active lava flows on Hawaii - they literally pull the lava away with a hammer then drop it in a bucket of water nearby.

The Economist just downgraded the US to  a “flawed democracy.”


In an ABC interview, Trump says we should have kept Iraq’s oil after invading, violating international law, but “Maybe we’ll have another chance.” Holy fucking shit.

New executive orders suspend immigration (including refugees) from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. The orders authorize local police to become immigration officers and the White House will publish a weekly list of crimes committed by undocumented immigrants.

Trump says construction of border wall to begin “in months”; Mexico will “absolutely” reimburse the U.S. Paul Ryan says Congress will front the money and get Mexico to pay it back later.

Mexican President: We Won’t Pay for a Wall

Undocumented Mexican border crossings have reached a 40-year low

Trump has called for a major investigation into voter fraud. His reasoning for this crackdown? A German professional golfer he knows saw some Latinos in a voting line in Florida. Paul Ryan is fine with that investigation despite the total lack of evidence.

Trump is back to using his personal, outdated Android phone and has plenty of time to watch TV

Forthcoming executive orders follow through on Trump’s promise to defund the UN:

Trump administration is preparing executive orders that would clear the
way to drastically reduce the United States’ role in the United Nations
and other international organizations, as well as begin a process to
review and potentially abrogate certain forms of multilateral treaties.

Cabinet & Federal Appointees

Trump advisors Steve Bannon, Kellyanne Conway, Jared Kushner and Sean Spicer all have private email accounts through the RNC. Well, thank God we don’t have Hillary in office, then.

’Treasury secretary nominee Steven Mnuchin lied in his written responses to the Senate Finance Committee, claiming that “OneWest Bank did not ‘robo-sign’ documents,” when ample evidence proves that they did.’

Cohn’s jump from Goldman Sachs to President Donald Trump’s
administration is helping him unlock more than $284 million in pent up
bonuses, stock holdings and other investments


Some 230 people have been charged with felony rioting for property damage during the inauguration

Other Fascist Nonsense

Data from the EPA must now be reviewed by political appointees before publication.

After yesterday’s gag order on public communications, at least 14 federal agencies’ employees have started anonymous, rogue Twitter accounts. NASA has published all the research it funded, for free.

Scientists are now planning to run for office.

Health Equity Act of 2017, a bill that would make the state the first

no-cost birth control and extending full coverage of reproductive health
services to immigrant women, transgender and gender-nonconforming
people, and the uninsured.

I am 1,000% for the found-family trope,  but keeping up the constant mistrust between found-family members to milk the drama out of it is annoying. 

I’ve had White Collar going as background noise, and while I love the relationship between Peter and Neal, the constant ‘doing X behind Y’s back because REASONS’ is so tiring. 

Even as background noise, I find it difficult.

Mark Ruffalo urges Americans not to ‘relearn their ignorance’ of American history but instead to help unite the country by supporting the Standing Rock protectors.

Last December we scored a significant victory when the Army Corp of Engineers halted construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline. Tumblr and I did an Answer Time about it. Following Trump’s latest reckless decision to allow construction, now is the time to stick together and show up for our fellow Indigenous people.

yay! Not just me! There really was a point there where Neal’s “you know what? fuck it. and you!” was absolutely legitimate. As much as I love my OT3… it was a flaw in the writing

For sure! And both of them with the constant willingness to believe the worst when they’ve both done the WAY above and beyond for each other at this point (I am on season 4).
