E.P.A. Head Stacks Agency With Climate Change Skeptics

WASHINGTON — Days after the Senate confirmed him as administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, Scott Pruitt appeared at the Conservative Political Action Conference and was asked about addressing a group that probably wanted to eliminate his agency.

“I think it’s justified,” he responded, to cheers. “I think people across the country look at the E.P.A. the way they look at the I.R.S.”

In the days since, Mr. Pruitt, a former Oklahoma attorney general who built a career out of suing the agency he now leads, has moved to stock the top offices of the agency with like-minded conservatives — many of them skeptics of climate change and all of them intent on rolling back environmental regulations that they see as overly intrusive and harmful to business.

"TRUMP IS DELUSIONAL AND MUST BE IMPEACHED..."

Trump pitches 37 percent cut to State Department budget

The Trump administration is proposing a 37 percent spending cut for the State Department and U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), according to multiple reports.Department.

If that wasn't enough.

Trump and His Obscene War Machine
The U.S. spends billions on un-winnable wars, sacrificing our safety.

A month into his presidency, Donald Trump announced that he would increase US military spending by $54 billion. To do this, Trump said that he would cut the exact amount from the non-military, namely social, programs. The announcement came at the National Governor’s Association, which is made up of state leaders who have to bear the brunt of the federal cuts.

Money for homelessness and poverty, starvation and drug addiction will dry up, leaving state authorities with the paralytic duty of watching more and more of their residents wake up to the American nightmare. This is the old ‘guns vs. butter’ scenario taught to young students in elementary economics classes. If economics is a matter of choices ove...

...

The ‘guns vs. butter’ problem is not idle. The National Priorities Project looked at the $54 billion budgetary increase to the military and concluded that this increase itself is more than the discretionary budgets of the following US federal government agencies:

Department of Homeland Security ($48 billion).

Housing and Urban Development ($38 billion).

Department of Energy ($30 billion).

Department of Justice ($29 billion).

Department of State ($29 billion).

Environmental Protection Agency ($8 billion).

FactCheck.Org: Trump's Address to Congress

Summary

In his first address to a joint session of Congress, President Donald Trump stuck closely to his prepared remarks, but ran afoul of the facts in some cases.

  • Trump said the U.S. has spent $6 trillion in the Middle East and “with this $6 trillion we could have rebuilt our country.” The amount spent so far is $1.7 trillion, according to the Defense Department.
  • He cherry-picked the findings of a recent report, saying it found immigration costs U.S. taxpayers “billions of dollars a year.” The report said immigration “has an overall positive impact on long-run economic growth.”
  • Trump said “94 million Americans are out of the labor force,” a figure that includes the retired, college students and stay-at-home parents. The vast majority — 88.5 million — said they didn’t want a job.
  • Trump said he would “promote clean air and clean water,” a vague claim that came hours after he had signed an executive order to roll back a 2015 “Clean Water Rule.”
  • And the president repeated claims we’ve fact-checked before on border security, welfare, job creation since he was elected, health insurance and crime. For instance, he said the U.S. left “our own borders wide open, for anyone to cross.” But the border patrol budget and number of agents have both doubled since 2001...

Here's  a map of election results by pecinct for 2008.  I wonder how long it will take to compile a map  as detailed for the presidental and senatorial races by precinct for 2016.

http://satelliteviewmap.us/united/united-states-presidential-electi... claims to provide the information. It isn't opening for me.

preliminary view how white voters voted in the 2016 US presidential election on a county by county basis. The counties in blue voted for Hillary Clinton and the ones in red voted for Donald Trump.

Reagente explains that:

For those wondering how I created this map, I started with 2012 version of this map (which utilized data from the NYT Upshot, David Leip’s US Election Atlas, Dave’s Redistricting App, and the American Community Survey via the Census Bureau) to calculate this for 2012 in detail.

From that starting point, I used the preliminary results (which I compared against 2012) and exit polls (when available, I made educated guesses in states where they weren’t) to determine how much demographic groups in 2016 shifted from ’12.

I decided to forego calculating margins until more information about this election is available, but this map should broadly speaking be accurate.

However, it should be noted that this map can be a little misleading for a few reasons. First, there’s no differentiation on the margin of victory. Second, it does not take into account population size. The counties in blue, generally speaking, have a lot more people living in them (including white voters).

These two factors mean that Trump’s victory among white voters, may appear slightly overstated by the map. Nevertheless, it’s still interesting to see the extreme geographical concentration of Clinton’s votes compared to Trump’s.
