Just to remind people that he is in fact a hippie greenie liberal who likes to stimulate the economy whether the economy is in the mood or not, Barack Obama is moving forward with a program to train 50,000 veterans for solar energy jobs. This is some kind of liberal wet dream, combining a couple of things that Republicans have relentlessly blocked: it's a jobs program (ugh) that promotes green energy (ugh!) and prepares people for an economy that's less dependent on fossil fuels (not that; drill baby drill!).


Now all the initiative needs to do is have the vets install those solar panels on a gay wedding chapel/abortionplex, and we'll change the Constitution to give Barry Bamz a third term (don't worry about the slog of a constitutional amendment, though, since we hear he's going to declare martial law and cancel all future elections anyway).

The job-training program is part of a wider initiative to promote green energy and cut reliance on fuels that create greenhouse gases. In addition to the solar job training, other executive-branch agencies will undertake green efforts in their areas of operations:

The Agriculture Department will also spend nearly $70 million to fund 540 solar and renewable energy projects, focused on rural and farming areas. And the Energy Department will propose stricter efficiency standards for commercial air conditioners, a move the department said could cut emissions more than any other efficiency standard it has issued to date.

Now, if you were a fuzzy-headed liberal, you might get the impression that this is more support for the idea that a shift away from fossil fuels could actually be good for the economy, instead of a disaster, but you would only say that if you didn't have a keen understanding of how vital your oil and gas campaign contributions are. So get ready for another round of crying about green communism and accusations that Barack Obama is tampering with the economy. Oh, sure, solar industry jobs grew nationwide last year and appear to be on track to continue to expand, but is training people to install solar arrays really a good idea when there's likely to be a change of climate in Congress in just a couple of weeks? Climate change may be "real," but if the Senate goes Republican, chances are good that global warming will be officially declared not a thing, and all those vets will be left wishing they had gotten into oil or "clean" coal, now won't they?

Dame Peggington Noonington awakened in the New York Publick Librarie in a daze. She did not know what series of unfortunate events had led to this moment, but she vaguely remembered that last time this happened a passerby on 5th Avenue had transported her there, having found her on a stoop with eyes glazed over, muttering "Buk! Buk!" If we're being honest, she was choking on gin, but the well-meaning Good Samaritan took her for a woman craving classic literature, and Peggy was OK with allowing that illusion to stand.

As she stumbled toward the exit to summon her chauffeur -- Manuel, who was also her houseboy, who probably was responsible entirely for her current predicament, and would be subject to a talking-to about his derring-do as soon as Peggy's head stopped pounding -- she happened upon a display of new arrivals. "Buk! Buk!" she said. Swallowing hard, she grabbed a copy of Michelle Obama's book and went out onto the New York street without actually checking the book out.

Peggy arrived home safely, if a bit worse for the wear. She had been thinking about America's royal families a lot lately, especially the genteel women who serve as First Lady. She was particularly charmed by Melania Trump's show of wicked mischief last week, firing the deputy national security adviser without regret! Peggy remembered how fun it is to fire people and stuck a Post-it on her forehead to remind her to fire Manuel later, for leaving her destitute among the commoners at the librarie.

Congratulations to the Dear Leader on his flawless victory in court against the media dogs at the CNN cesspool of evil. Donald Trump is a champion of the people's right to civil discourse, and he will not hesitate to slap those who hurt the dignity of the Supreme Leadership. Take it from Ri Chun-hee Sarah Huckabee Sanders:

Today the court made clear that there is no absolute First Amendment right to access the White House. In response to the court, we will temporarily reinstate the reporter's hard pass. We will also further develop rules and processes to ensure fair and orderly press conferences in the future. There must be decorum at the White House.

Leave aside for a moment the screaming irony of the Pussgrab Administration lecturing the press on decorum. Literally none of what the Huckster said here is true. Judge Timothy Kelly ordered the White House Press Office to reinstate Jim Acosta's hard pass immediately on Fifth Amendment grounds. He didn't reach the First Amendment issues of press access because he didn't have to.
