“I would think Ukraine is trying to provoke things, but western politicians and media all disagree.”
This is a translation of video showing Russian naval vessel Don ramming Ukrainian tugboat Yani Kapu near Kerch on 25 November. Video was filmed by Russian sailors. #Azov

It’s clear Trump wasn’t worried until Cohen got caught. But hey the AE points out that 2 lawyers, the only American citizens except for Fox News with a license to lie have an opinion and thus the wheels of justice should halt.
V. Arnold, you are just a participant like I am and this is a public forum.
You got anything other than names and accusations?
“Two lawyers in the WSJ warning that the FBI had so tainted the process, Mueller should at a minimum pause his investigation.”
2 lawyers with an opinion and the investigation should be paused? Well, of course, stop the wheels of justice!
Trump is acting so guilty, the only thing he hasn’t done yet is hanging himself.

What happened between April and May?
FBI raid on Cohen was in April.
The Automatic Earth? Nothing to see here, move on.
The old CO2 is plant food argument equals “I haven’t thought this through” argument.
Based on simple and appealing logic: if plants need CO2 for their growth, then more of it should be better. We should expect our crops to become more abundant and our flowers to grow taller and bloom brighter.
Old saying, “Too much of a good thing can be a bad thing.” For example, if a doctor tells you to take one pill of a certain medicine, it does not follow that taking four is likely to heal you four times faster or make you four times better. It’s more likely to make you sick.
These conjectures fail to consider that increasing the availability of one substance that plants need also requires availability of others to accrue benefits.
It also fails to take into account an increase in deserts and other arid lands, reducing the area available for crops and population.
Economies do not live on debt alone nor do plants live on CO2 alone. It is not a simple task to increase water and fertilizer across the globe.
Presuming that more green leaf area is a good phenomena doesn’t account for the depletion and subsequent deficiencies of the other necessary compounds and elements and can be indicative of an actual adverse response.
As we require food, not just green leaves the impact of CO2 will have some necessarily negative impacts on agriculture and plant growth in general.
“1. CO2 enhanced plants will need extra water both to maintain their larger growth as well as to compensate for greater moisture evaporation as the heat increases. Where will it come from? In many places rainwater is not sufficient for current agriculture and the aquifers they rely on are running dry throughout the Earth.
We are experiencing more intense storms with increased rainfall rates. Such intense bursts do not have time to soak into the ground, quickly flooding into creeks, then rivers, storage reservoirs eroding top soil and leaching nutrients.
2. Increased leaf surface means more fertilization to keep plants healthy. Fertilizers are made mostly from natural gas which will become increasingly more expensive over time, driving up the price of food.
3. Too high a concentration of CO2 causes a reduction of photosynthesis in some important food crops. Higher CO2 reduces the nutritional quality of food staples, such as wheat. Less photosynthesis and low quality do not make a progressing civilization.
4. Presuming that initial bust of green leafing is like endless cheap oil, will continue defies real experience and actual history. As always, that promising burst of growth upon initial exposure to C02, is no different than the “nitrogen plateau”. Debt, nitrogen and CO2 benefits soon truncate.
5. Increased green leafing while decreasing quantities and quality of our food increases that of insects and herbivores. For example, injecting sewage sludge into the soil increased the growth of soybeans, it also greatly increased the population of rabbits which ate more and lowered the crop harvest.
Thus the “more CO2 there is, is better” argument doesn’t hold up.
“Gossip sells.” Trump junior has made the gossip into a smoking cannon.
Russia didn’t need anyone to do reveal negative information on Hillary or anyone. They could just have published it. Meeting only necessary for quid pro quo and by force of habit, the Trumps accepted.
As a habit, it never occurred to them that Russia was free to use the Automatic Earth to publish their negative information for an example.
Have to wonder what quid pro quos the Trump’s have given to the Russians over all the years.
Stop the nonsense. Comey, as a recently fired and as a private citizen revealed his notes in response to Trump’s public comments. By discussing it previously and openly, Trump effectively declassified and removed any executive privilege from the discussion and subject matter.
And regarding Comey, what classified information did he reveal?
Correcting your first point then:
Comey admitted to subsequently sharing unclassified and no longer protected by executive privilege, his version of a private talk in the
Oval Office, a private talk Trump made public and unprotected by executive privilege.
So how great is that Financial Choice Act? Something I hope you would share your thoughts on.
