    Happer's departure comes a day after National Security Adviser John Bolton abruptly resigned amid a dispute with President Trump over holding negotiations with the Taliban.

    This is Collateral Damage I can get behind.

    Bolton supported Happer's effort to try to weaken the science backing the National Climate Assessment.

    Just the latest reason to drive this awful bastard and his disturbing mustache from civilized society. Where's an ostrakon when you really need one?

    Happer, who is not formally trained in climate science but is an accomplished physicist at Princeton University,

The plants lasted about three months before capitulating to the ambient air "quality."

            waiting for insturctions on how to destroy the U.S.A. Don't remember why the dude leapt-up
            and tried to dash outside, but the sliding door was closed. Bounced right back on his ass.

        I invite Bret Stephens to come to my house, eat a three course meal and then lie down with my dogs to see if he gets fleas, while I call him a bedbug

    1. I did, a little. According to my on-screen TV guide, it doesn't even start here for another 10 minutes. Therefore, I missed the first hour.
