Why Is Trump Making A List Of Certain Government Employees?


Enjoyed the video ladies check these swimsuits out

Is Trump setting up a purge of government employees who believe in climate change? Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola, and Jimmy Dore, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

"The transition team has asked the agency to list employees and contractors who attended United Nations climate meetings, along with those who helped develop the Obama administration’s social cost of carbon metrics, used to estimate and justify the climate benefits of new rules. The advisers are also seeking information on agency loan programs, research activities and the basis for its statistics, according to a five-page internal document circulated by the Energy Department on Wednesday. The document lays out 65 questions from the Trump transition team, sources within the agency said.

On the campaign trail, Trump promised to eliminate government waste, rescind "job-killing" regulations and cancel the Paris climate accord in which nearly 200 countries pledged to slash greenhouse gas emissions. Trump, though, hasn’t detailed specific plans for federal agencies. The document obtained by Bloomberg offers clues on where his administration may be headed on energy policy, based on the nature of questions involving the agency’s research agenda, nuclear program and national labs.

In response to news of the document, Senator Ed Markey, a Democrat from Massachusetts, sent a letter to Trump warning that any punishment of agency workers carrying out policies his administration doesn’t agree with “would be tantamount to an illegal modern-day political witch hunt, and would have a profoundly chilling impact on our dedicated federal workforce.””*

    Trumps having his own Nuremberg Trials. He is insane. JK I dunno its weird
    he is making a list like that. Kinda scary.

      Totally did not remind me of Erdogans Enemy-of-state list… But
      considering that Turkey and the US are global last, when it comes to
      believing in evolution, it’s not really surprising that both have a
      similarly fascist leader.

    Trump went full blown Stalin.

      Alex Smalex Conservatives were talking out of their asses. Anything to make
      President Blackenstein the boogey man. The actual reason was that they just
      couldn’t stomach the fact that a black man made it to the White House…
      They hated him for it and did everything they could to smear him with
      outrageous BS.

    • Posted by Tom Will, at Reply

      well he’s making a list, he hasn’t yet sent those people to Siberia.So I
      wouldn’t say ‘full blown Stalin’ but yeah it’s worrying.

      +Alex Smalex The difference being how the liberals base their ideas on
      actual facts, while the conservatives base their ideas purely on propaganda.

      David Ortiz At least full blown Santa. Except the gifts aren’t that great

    When Trump’s cronies will have massively added to global warming, causing
    Florida to get flooded, and when rivers and soil are stuffed with toxic
    fracking chemicals, then the Dear Lard will protect his people:
    Conservatives, who elected a misogynist, racist, hate mongering psychopath.

    • Posted by Qahir Makhani, at Reply

      Maybe then Florida will stop screwing elections?

      taxiuniversum Hey dumbass, 35 years ago before you were half egg half sperm
      they said Florida shores would be underwater. I was in Key West last month.
      Highest elevation in Key West is 16 inches above sea level. No flooding
      noted. If we did every costly EPA reg you might see a reduction of .25 deg

      I’m ok with losing Florida, to floods and other assorted unnatural
      disasters created and exacerbated by humanity, but I will miss the theme

    • Posted by taxiuniversum, at Reply

      DOC Ohm LOL. You might look at the statistics of companies like MunichRe,
      who are providing insurance against natural disasters. They are actually
      experts, since the money they have to pay after floods, hurricanes etc.
      reflects the changes that are ACTUALLY taking place. Undereducated people
      like you have it easy: Each time some county gets wiped out by yet another
      unprecedented natural disaster, you can blame it on gay marriage, or on
      abortions. 😂

    you guys still believe and quote polls really lol

    • Posted by Skaarphy, at Reply

      In this election the polls were demonstrably false. That doesn’t mean that
      all polls are false. Common sense at its most basic.

    I’m gonna put this as moderately and nuanced as possible:
    Trump is Satan and his cabinet are the demons of hell. Period.

    corrupted by “big Science”….You know….enemies of “clean coal” to be
    replaced by competent people who knows the needs of the pure oil
