Open thread for night owls: Court gives thumbs-down on Trump regime's effort to suspend methane rule

Andres Germanos at CommonDreams writes—In 'Tremendous Victory for Taxpayers, Public Health, and Planet,' Federal Court Rejects Trump Admin.'s Attempt to Suspend Methane Rule: A court has once again rejected the Trump administration's effort to suspend an Obama-era rule aimed at reducing releases of methane from oil and gas operations on federal and tribal land. «The decision,» writes Meleah Geertsma, a senior attorney with NRDC, «once again sends a message to this administration that it will not get away with illegal handouts to industry, at the expense of Americans' health and the environment.» The latest rebuke to the attempt to derail the Bureau of Land Management's Waste Prevention Rule was delivered late Thursday by the U.S. District Court for the District of Northern California in response to suits filed by a number of environmental groups, as well as the states of California and New Mexico over the rule suspension. «The BLM's reasoning behind the Suspension Rule is untethered to evidence contradicting the reasons for implementing the Waste Prevention Rule, and so plaintiffs are likely to prevail on the merits,» Judge William Orrick wrote in his ruling(pdf). «They have shown irreparable injury caused by the waste of publicly owned natural gas, increased air pollution and associated health impacts, and exacerbated climate impacts.» Orrick granted a preliminary injunction requiring the Interior Department to enforce the regulation, eliciting praise from environmental groups. «Though they seem to think otherwise,» said Kelly Martin, Sierra Club Beyond Dirty Fuels campaign director, «Donald Trump and [Interior Secretary] Ryan Zinke are not above the law. Once again, the courts are serving as a critical backstop against their reckless attempts to unravel key protections for our air, water, and climate. This ruling is a victory for our communities' health and the climate, and we will continue to fight to hold this administration accountable and defend this critical clean air standard.» [...] TOP COMMENTS • HIGH IMPACT STORIES QUOTATION “It does little good to forecast the future of semiconductors or energy, or the future of the family (even one's own family), if the forecast springs from the premise that everything else will remain unchanged.

However, the public isn't buying it. In the latest CBS News poll, 59 percent of respondents believed war would lead to more terrorism in the US. Only 12 percent thought it would lower the threat. In adddition, 60 percent of all respondents, and 40 percent of Republicans, think the US should wait for UN approval before invading. Not that Bush will heed poll results, but it does indicate that he will place this nation at war without the full and enthusiastic backing of the people -- a reality that may bear consequences down the road.

One of Trump's ambassador nominees caught lining his would-be boss' pockets

Leandro Rizzuto Jr., the nominee to be ambassador to Barbados and several other Caribbean countries, has a bit of a problem facing him in his Senate confirmation. While a great friend of Trump, he made no friends with any other Republican, having spread vile smears about Trump's opponents during the 2016 primaries including Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, and Ohio Gov. John Kasich. That's going make his reception in the Senate a little frosty. The latest revelation, from the invaluable David Fahrenthold at The Washington Post, isn't going to help him much, either—at least not if Mitch McConnell wants to even pretend to be taking his job seriously. Two weeks after President Trump nominated Florida businessman Leandro Rizzuto Jr. to be ambassador to Barbados, Rizzuto pledged thousands of dollars to fund a gala at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club, the gala’s organizer said. Rizzuto and his wife, Denise, have committed to be “underwriters” for next year’s Trumpettes USA gala at the club in Palm Beach, Fla, according to Toni Holt Kramer, the founder of the Trumpettes. The Trumpettes are a group of Palm Beach-based socialites and Trump supporters whose galas aren’t intended to raise money for charity—instead, most or all of the money they bring in goes to pay Trump’s club. Kramer said the Rizzutos had pledged to support the 2019 gala at the “presidential” level—the most expensive kind of sponsorship. The less-expensive kinds are “vice presidential” and “five-star general.” Exactly how much had Rizzuto pledged? Kramer wouldn't divulge that to Fahrenthold, but did say that the «presidential» level of support generally comes in at «upwards of probably $15,000 or $20,000 or $25,000.» But of course Rizzuto didn't make this pledge as a thank you, or god forbid, a bribe to the guy who is giving him a very cushy job in a fabulous location. No, not at all. «They’re not doing it because they want to be in good graces with the president. They’re doing it because they want this country to run right,» Kramer says. Uh, huh. The hearings haven't been scheduled yet, and according to a Senate Foreign Relations Committee staffer, Rizzuto hasn't completed his required paperwork. At this point, if someone in the Republican leadership doesn't go to Trump and tell him to withdraw this nominee, we'll know that McConnell and team are just as corrupt as the president they're propping up.

NRA's Dana Loesch wants us to blame 'people who are crazy' for mass shootings, facts be damned

Republicans are trying to have it both ways on guns and mental illness, making it easier for people with mental illness to get guns while insisting that the Parkland school shooter shouldn’t have had a gun because of his presumed mental illness. That’s the White House position and it’s the position of the NRA's Dana Loesch: “I don’t believe that this insane monster” — alleged Parkland, Fla., shooter Nikolas Cruz — “should have ever been able to obtain a firearm, ever,” she said. “I do not think that he should have gotten his hands on any kind of weapon. That’s No. 1. This individual was nuts, and I, nor the millions of people that I represent as a part of this organization, that I’m here speaking for, none of us support people who are crazy, who are a danger to themselves, who are a danger to others, getting their hands on a firearm.” He shouldn’t have been able to obtain a firearm, ever, said a representative of the organization dedicated to ensuring that firearms are always available to anyone who wants them, although if police then shoot law-abiding but suspiciously non-white gun carriers, said organization won’t really mind. There are … other problems with Loesch’s position, as Philip Bump reveals with a look at data from Mother Jones: Of the 96 [mass shootings killing more than three people] included in their list, 57 of the assailants exhibited some signs of instability or emotional distress by our assessment of Mother Jones’s numbers. Seventeen didn’t; for 22, it’s unclear. We can break that down further, cross-referencing mental illness with the legality of the weapon (or weapons) used in the attack. Fewer than half of the shooters exhibited mental issues before the attacks and are known to have bought guns legally. That’s the group Loesch is apparently targeting — meaning that the other 51 incidents are not necessarily addressed by the restriction she proposes. Now, look, if a policy could cut mass shootings nearly in half I’d be all for it, but the NRA does not actually support such policies. And there is so much evidence that mental illness is not the primary driver of mass shootings—as many people have pointed out, women with mental illness somehow don't commit mass shootings, and other countries with mental illness rates similar to the U.S. don’t have mass shooting rates similar to the U.S. So while it’s reasonable to say that people with certain mental illnesses or instabilities should not have access to guns—a position the NRA would only take briefly in response to a mass shooting before fighting to keep it from becoming law—it’s not actually the answer to mass shootings. No, that answer has a little something to do with the guns.

Short-term use of IV devices is common -- and risky -- study shows

Many hospital patients get medicine or nutrition delivered straight into their bloodstream through a tiny device called a PICC. In just a decade, it's become the go-to device for intravenous care. But a new study finds that one in every four times a PICC gets inserted, the patient didn't need it long enough to justify the risks it can pose. And nearly one in ten of those patients suffered a complication linked to the device.
