Consensus Census Con 0

Mike Littwin takes a deep-dive into the Trump Administration’s changing rationales for adding a citizenship question to the census. A snippet:

When Trump was asked why he was so insistent in pursuing the citizenship question, he offered up various possibilities, saying, “Number one, you need it for Congress — you need it for Congress for districting (sic). You need it for appropriations — where are the funds going? How many people are there? Are they citizens? Are they not citizens? You need it for many reasons.”

Oops. Redistricting? Number one? That’s what the question’s opponents say it’s about.

Objectiveng to Science 0

At the Bangor Daily News, Basav Sen of the Climate Policy Project at the Institute for Policy Studies outlines the Trump administration’s war on science. A snippet:

Recently, the Department of Energy began referring to natural gas as “freedom gas,” which sounds like something straight out of satire site The Onion. Unintentional humor aside, this choice of terminology resembles the calculated debasement of language by totalitarian states.

Last November, when a report by government scientists contradicted Trump’s position and showed that the United States will suffer devastating consequences from climate change, the president simply declared that reality was irrelevant. “I don’t believe it” was his response.

Video Vandals 0

Shorter Dick Polman comments on the right-wing’s faked video of Nancy Pelosi (and the legion of other faked videos). A snippet:

Granted, fakery in politics isn’t new; nor are conservatives the sole offenders (there’s a theory among some addled lefties that Melania Trump has a body double, based on a manipulation of certain photos). But the current technologically-driven threat to democracy is decisively asymmetric. None of the Democratic presidential candidates spend their time re-tweeting fake videos; Trump may not have created this dangerously toxic climate, but as the commander-in-chief in the war on facts, he is predictably its prime abetter.
