Trump uses Hurricane Harvey as cover for dirty deeds.

Beltane regarding that funding confusion, . . .

Petition Urges Congress To Fund FEMA, Not Trump’s Border Wall President Donald Trump has threatened a government shutdown over funding for the wall, while proposing to cut federal funds for the disaster relief agency. By Kaeli Subberwal - 08/30/2017 http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/petition-fema-funding-border-wall_us_59a6e5d0e4b084581a14e6d2 ... The Care2 petition also criticizes Trump’s proposed cuts to FEMA’s funding. “This is an absolutely absurd and harmful plan and we can’t let it happen," the Care2 petition page reads. In July, House Republicans allocated $1.6 billion for Trump’s wall in their proposed homeland security budget. Although it still falls well short of what the Department of Homeland Security estimates the wall would cost to construct, $1.6 billion could make a major difference to the response to Hurricane Harvey, including in funding to FEMA. In his proposed 2018 budget, Trump suggested a $600 million cut to FEMA’s state and local programs. The 11 percent reduction from FEMA would make more funding available to the military. Noting that the effects of Hurricane Harvey in Texas have been devastating, the petition page goes on to criticize Trump for threatening a government shutdown if Democrats in Congress do not support funding for the wall.
Next time you brag on Trump can you produce more than assurances, such as some links to substantive information that supports to your assessment. No doubt there is tons I don't know about the mechanisms and details of funding progress and such - so I'm open to any edification you care to offer. In the interest of constructive dialogue. :-)
AUGUST 29, 2017 EPA says climate scientists trying to 'politicize' Texas storm :lol: :smirk: :down: Valerie Volcovici http://www.reuters.com/article/us-storm-harvey-climatechange-idUSKCN1B92V0 President Donald Trump has repeatedly expressed doubts about climate change and has announced he will pull out of a global pact to combat it. On Aug. 15, days before the Texas storm, (Trump) signed an executive order revoking an Obama-era rule requiring projects built in coastal floodplains that receive federal aid to account for the impacts of sea-level rise. Climate scientists have said that coastal areas, which have seen a surge in population growth, can expect to grapple with more severe flooding as global temperatures rise. “There is universal agreement" that global warming will boost rainfall during hurricanes because warmer air holds more moisture, increasing the risk of severe floods, said Kerry Emanuel, atmospheric science professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
A review manmade global warming has definitely intensified Harvey. This is the new normal, expect more hits, are we ready?
* Global warming is definitely directly related to that hot Gulf of Mexico waters that fed an explosive intensification of a tropical storm. * Global warming is definitely directly related to the fact that the atmosphere is holding more moisture and making it available for storm systems such as Harvey to collect and dump. * Global warming is definitely directly related to the fact that our Jet Stream has gotten weirder and is currently causing the stalling and reversal of Harvey’s northward movement. * Global warming is definitely directly related to the fact that sea level is rising and thus adding substantially to damaging storm surges.
heck there's more 1/ Less than two weeks before Hurricane Harvey, Trump rescinded Obama's coastal flood protections, which required federal, state, and local agencies to take steps to protect infrastructure from flooding caused by climate change. The Federal Flood Risk Management Standard aimed to “reduce the risk and cost of future flood disasters" and “help ensure federal projects last as long as intended." (HuffPost) 2/ House Republicans want to cut almost $1 billion from FEMA's disaster relief fund, which only has $2.3 billion remaining in its budget. Trump, meanwhile, is promising billions to help Texas rebuild from Harvey-caused flooding. The $876 million cut pays for roughly half the cost of Trump’s down payment on the border wall.

“What a crowd, what a turnout!" Trump visited Texas and forgot to mention Hurricane Harvey’s victims

“I love you, you are special, we’re here to take care of you. It’s going well." “What a crowd, what a turnout." Reporters heard no mention of the dead, dying or displaced Texans and no expression of sympathy for them. The message was services are coming and Texans will be OK. “Texas can handle anything," POTUS said. “We are going to get you back and operating immediately," he told the crowd (this contradicts the “Long haul" Sen. John Cornyn has publicly discussed and the caveat from FEMA administrator long moments earlier that it’s going to be a slow process).
That so many are okay with this clown is what's truly incredible.
Dedication to the task at hand - Trump's celebrity status. Obsessed narcissists don't change - why would anyone trust such an intellectual (and humanitarian) midget? Beltane can you explain?
Celebrities are superior to modern politicians in every possible way.

Celebrities are superior to modern politicians in every possible way. Well I was curious what kind of substance you possessed. Thanks for the hint.

What part don't you get?

For starters how an intelligent rational thinking person can support a narcissistic habitual liar with the intellectual depth of a cash register. That would be Mr trump. Can you offer any insights? If you feel my assessment is unfair, please point out where I'm wrong using facts from the gold plated trump's life and actions.
