Trump set to weaken methane air pollution rule

Trump set to weaken pollution rules

The Trump administration is poised to roll back existing regulations on methane gas as early as this week, the New York Times reported Monday.

The proposal would weaken an Obama-era requirement that companies must monitor and repair any methane leaks, according to documents the Times reviewed. The new rule is anticipated to allow for far more air pollution and leaks of the gas.

The proposed rule would be the third major step the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has made this year to change the way air pollutants are regulated.

Sasse: ‘Every morning’ I consider leaving the GOP

Sasse thinks about leaving GOP

Sen. Ben Sasse lambasted nasty rhetoric and partisanship between Republicans and Democrats on Sunday and said he’s considered leaving the Republican Party.

“I probably think about it every morning when I wake up, and I figure out why am I flying away from Nebraska to go to D.C. this week,” said Sasse, who tweeted Saturday that he had considered leaving the GOP. “Are we gonna get real stuff done?”

In an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Sasse, a Nebraska Republican, said he considers himself “an independent conservative who caucuses with the Republicans.” Though critical of President Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign and beyond, he has also supported much of Trump’s agenda.


A Far-Right Party With Nazi Roots Could Sweep to Power in Sweden

Far right party poised to win in Sweden

Around the world, Sweden is viewed as a haven for liberal values and progressive policy. This image is likely to change after the election this Sunday. If polls are accurate, the far-right Sverigedemokraterna (Sweden Democrats) will receive about a fifth of the vote, giving them tremendous power in parliament.

In the past few weeks, international media have descended upon Sweden, attempting to explain this rise of the far-right. Most have come up with a similar story, that goes something like this: the political establishment, and the governing parties of the past decade, from the center-left and center-right, have completely failed to handle the challenges of mass immigration, and now they are paying the price. So voters are turning to the Sweden Democrats as a kind of corrective to an unrealistic immigration policy.


Trump Says 2016 Deal With Stormy Daniels Was Never Valid

Trump: Stormy deal was never validPresident Trump has reversed course on fighting to enforce adult film star Stormy Daniels’ 2016 nondisclosure agreement, saying in court documents Saturday that the deal was never valid to begin with.

Trump’s attorney, Charles Harder, wrote that since Trump himself never signed the deal, Daniels’ “assertion that the Settlement Agreement was never formed, or in the alternative, should be rescinded” would no longer be contested in court.

Harder urged Daniels to “immediately dismiss” the president from her lawsuit seeking to void the agreement.
