Saudi first: Trump wants to start a war with Iran when MBS gives the order by @mehdirhasan
On the word of a single, likely compromised, U.S. official, CBS says the Saudi oil attack was approved by Iran's supreme leader.

This story deserves our skepticism.…
I gotta say, this doesn't FEEL smart.

Under Trump arms deal, US smart bombs to be built in Saudi Arabia

We should not hand the Saudis valuable weapons tech given the kingdom's conduct in Yemen and its human rights record.…

If you find yourself newly interested in NOAA, scientific integrity, and how decisionmakers are held accountable for following the science-based missions of agencies. Here's some background. There are reasons #sharpiegate is playing out this way.
Before 2011, most federal agencies didn't have much in terms of scientific integrity protections for staff. The Bush II administration laid bare this glaring vulnerability, with abuses of science across the government from ideological and financial forces…
As a result, @UCSUSA and others in the scientific community insisted scientific integrity be a priority under the Obama administration and that the policies be strong. By the end of the Obama administration some 28 agencies had scientific integrity policies on the books.

Good morning! ☕ Senate Republicans are confirming so many of Trump’s lifetime federal judges, it’s hard to keep up.

Here's a guide to his most alarming judges to date. Some simply aren't qualified; others are extreme right-wing ideologues.…
If you think #sharpiegate is crazy, imagine someone getting confirmed to be a lifetime federal judge who falsely claimed abortion causes cancer. Or who called being transgender "a delusion." Or who blamed women for date rape.

This is all happening.…
I know talking about judges and courts sounds boring. But Trump and Mitch McConnell are remaking the federal courts at warp speed, and the questionable people they're confirming as *lifetime* judges will be making decisions for decades that affect you.…

Trump's most lasting legacy is this rogue's gallery, collected by @jbendery (who you should follow) of 150 lawyers (& counting!) who will be rewriting constitutional & statutory interpretation for the next 30-40 yrs. Great work on a horrible topic Jen!…
@jbendery 25% of all appeals courts judges (where 99% of all cases end), 2 SCOTUS appointees (incl one who brags about overturning precedent & another who probably lied at his hearing) + 100 district (trial) court judges. It's stunning (in a bad way).
@jbendery The law changes over time, but usually w/in the 40 yard lines. What these judges will do is roll it back, WAY BACK to a time before civil, LGBTQ, women's, and voting rights were widely protected. It's about 1000% more dangerous than #sharpiegate but gets 1/1000th the coverage

Trump is in his #KooKoo4CacaoPuffs dictator phase & below is why we have the bizarre #SharpieGate:

📌House to take formal steps on impeachment probe next week

Looks like Trump had a secret rendezvous w/ the Taliban at Camp a David—WTF(?)—now canceled, thank God.

New docs show that the M.I.T. Media Lab was aware of Epstein’s status as a convicted sex offender, and that Epstein directed contributions to the lab far exceeding the amounts M.I.T. has publicly admitted.

Is there a tacit agreement to overlook indiscretions?

This might look like another layer of #SharpieGate, but NOAA leadership trading scientific integrity for political appeasement is a much bigger deal and one that threatens the safety of the nation.
Employees of @NWS work around the clock, in every corner of the country, to keep the nation safe from hurricanes, tornadoes, heatwaves, and floodwaters. Communication with the public is a crucial part of that work.
@NWS @NWSBirmingham meteorologists were doing this vital job when @NOAA leaders betrayed them. Adding to the disappointment, this is the same Birmingham office that won national awards for their tireless work to save lives during the historic 2011 tornado outbreak.

Mr President I couldn't believe how the media behaved from the start of #HurricaneDorain. The bizarre coverage that they created out of a category 5 storm.
From Dorian's inception they made false statements about FEMA's response to Puerto Rico's hurricanes. The ludicrous Lamestream media made horrific statements when they thought it would hit Florida and Mar-a-Lago...
It would be better if they reported facts, but the media appear to have been possessed by Fake News spirits and are unable to stop Mr President..

I have cautioned (non-trained forecasters) for years to ignore #SpaghettiPlots. #SharpieGate is an example of why. To the untrained eye, all forecast models are equal and have the same "weight". This however is not true and a spaghetti plot often contains data up to 12 hours old.
Some models included in a spaghetti plot (SP) are run twice / day, at 12z and 0z. When a model is run at 0z, and included on a 12z SP, the SP began its run at 11z, which contained the last avail run of the model (0z). By the time SP shows up on a server, it has 12 hr old data.
Some SP have data that isn't even a model, such as XTRP. That is just a straight-line extrapolation of the storm's current direction. And not every model works the same way. Some are new and somewhat "experimental", while others a very solid.

#SharpiePresident #SharpieTrump @drskyskull You must not be much of a scientist since you disavow and cowardly hide from truth. Truth wins in the end. It always has and always will. Truth is eternal. Truth is to be embraced, not feared.
@drskyskull you have no honor and actively fight against truth - you blocked me so I couldn’t reply to you, you apparently reported me so my account would be restricted, and also deleted your reply to me - Whatever your problem is with the truth, it can be resolved.
Truth and Love go hand in hand. One without the other is like a blind man groping in the dark. 😉🦋❤️✝️ Take care @drskyskull Without Truth and Love, you would have nothing #SharpieTrump #SharpiePresident #sharpiegate

1. There are three major things going on in Trump's life that are not being reported due to the noise from #SharpieGate. Knowing that these issues are lurking helps me analyze his conduct.
Deutsche Bank
The only one of these three that found its way into
2. his recent Twitter rage is Russia that got his attention yesterday evidenced when he tweeted about the origins of Mueller probe again renewing claims he'd been spied on by IC. Coincidentally the person who was likely in charge
3. of the infrastructure that trapped evidence of his treason was in town today and made it clear was not politically motivated. My guess is Barr's little inquisition did an interview. But if the intel committees were in on it, the 2016 Trump-Kremlin intercepts are getting

#SharpieGate has now turned into WeatherGate. It's what Fake News is going to use to take the President down. 🌪️

The View ladies are giving the business to Trump on #sharpiegate. They're even showing people's tweets owning him. It's basically Chapo for people with mortgages.
They're going over the details of the Woody Allen case now. I think they're gonna get to the bottom of it, folks.
The first half hour of the view is three five minute 'conversations' and three five minute commercial breaks. No one is actually WATCHING this. They put it on in the background while they make lunch or argue on the phone with their landscaper or buy oxys from their nephew
