https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2018/06/08/two-weeks-after-trump-unveiled-plan-to-lower-drug-prices-two-cancer-drugs-got-a-1000-per-month-price-hike/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.affc11ae5848&utm_source=reddit.com

Two weeks after President Trump in May unveiled a plan to lower drug prices for Americans, promising “it will start to take effect very soon,” the drug company Bayer hiked the list prices of two cancer drugs by more than $1,000 per month.

Bayer wasn’t alone. A research note by Wells Fargo analyst David Maris found that although fewer drug-price increases occurred in May than in previous months, dozens of increases did occur.

Tsar Trump. I wonder why he is so worried about pardoning himself.

President Trump on Friday doubled down on his claim that he can pardon himself for any potential crimes but insisted that he would not have to because he hasn’t broken the law.

“I have an absolute right to pardon myself,” Trump told reporters outside the White House before departing for the G-7 summit.

Trump’s comments marked the second time in a matter of days that he asserted his right to pardon himself in the event that he is charged with an offense.

And those at TOP still are angry at Bernie for not being a real Democrat. More angry at Glenn Greenwald for exposing the deep state.

Benny

And they blame Jill Stein and Susan Sarandon for Trump’s election.

and Glenn is all about ego they say

A couple of weeks ago when Glenn again wrote about Brazil and their corruption, my sense is that he will be murdered by that state

Gosh, I hope not!

If anyone has the time and patience to watch the DNC Rules and Bylaws meeting (this has to do with superdelegate rules among other things):

From bits and pieces I can pick up, they are still talking about the delegate’s role of expressing support for a candidate ahead of time and the credentialing of them by state parties.

Benny

Superdelegates won’t be discussed until this afternoon.

Benny

Looks like they may not vote on superdelegate issue this afternoon, or if they do, it’s going to run over time.

Just ironic as h3ll that the PPACA is based on a Heritage Foundation FRightwing program. The fascist fruitcakes and other GOPukes are screaming about it like the Soviets invented it. Be a screech if it wasn’t so tragic!

Just as with water quality issues, Native Americans are playing a huge role in getting us off dependence on fossil fuels? I believe that this is in what we now know as Massachusetts.

Tribe Pursuses Energy Independence

The Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe is another step closer to becoming energy independent with renewable energy thanks to help from the federal government.

The Mashpee Wampanoag Community Development Corporation received $94,000 this week as a follow up grant from the Bureau of Indian Affairs’ Division of Energy and Mineral Development to further develop what they are calling the Tribal Utility Corporation as well as a pioneering micro-grid eco-village.

The utility corporation is similar to the Cape Light Compact. As a sovereign nation, the tribe would be able to buy energy directly from the grid and then provide energy at a much cheaper rate to tribal members, said Mark D. Harding, president of the tribe’s Community Development Corporation.

In addition, the grant will help the tribe move forward with seeking different renewable energy projects. Mr. Harding said that would likely result in solar panels on government buildings, as well as on homes, canopies and carports.

I can only hope that Pruitt doesn’t hear about this!

“At the heart of this development is the desire to close the loop with respect to natural resource production and use,” said Mr. Harding. “For centuries our people have understood the need to live and walk in harmony with the natural world. With this most recent grant, we’re now closer to incorporating those traditional ways into a modern business model.”
