Nuclear Treaties? John Bolton Just Wants To Blow Some Sh*t Up

It's Trump's bomb, we're just along for the ride.

On Friday, Trump's White House announced it wanted to kill a Soviet-era arms treaty. Over the weekend, people who try to prevent nuclear holocausts noted that this was a bad idea and urged the administration to reconsider. Today, Trump's resident war machine, John Bolton, went to Moscow to formally announce that we're going all-in on the Trump Cold War. Now might be a good time to start practicing that old "duck and cover" routine.

Trump Tariffs Have Ford Falling Apart Like A Rusted-Out '79 Fiesta

Whoops.

In another great leap forward for the nation's manufacturing economy under Donald Trump's trade wars, Ford Motor Company announced it will be laying off Crom only knows how many white-collar workers as part of a worldwide "reorganization" intended to keep the automaker afloat. Although maybe "automaker" is the wrong word, since last spring Ford announced it would drop production of virtually all its passenger cars except for the Mustang -- which may still see production cuts due to tariffs. Hooray! SO MUCH WINNING. We bet the laid off workers are probably sick of it.

NBC News, citing a report for investors by Morgan Stanley, said the cutbacks could amount to roughly 24,000 workers out of Ford's workforce of 202,000 worldwide. But hey, no reason to panic, because it's all about efficiency:

Devin Nunes Has A Secret. A Cow Secret.

OK, it's more of an undocumented workers at his family's cow farm secret. And it's not so secret anymore.

Yr Wonkette has been wrong all along about Devin Nunes, the chair of the House Intel Committee who has helped Donald Trump find the real Russian collusion scandal, which is Hillary Clinton and the FBI doing wire tapps to Trump. We have pushed the scurrilous rumor that Nunes has been romancing the cows at his family's California dairy farm, but yesterday we learned, thanks to a hell of an investigative piece in Esquire, that can't be true, since in 2009, Nunes's family sold their farmland in Tulare County, California, a decade ago and moved off to Sibley, Iowa, to set up a dairy operation there. And they successfully kept that move out of the media for years. So Devin Nunes's claims to be a humble California cowshitkicker are even less credible than before. Gosh, wonder why they've tried so hard to conceal a fairly unremarkable move? Maybe to keep Devin away from the cows? It would be irresponsible not to speculate.

But one Nunes uncle still has a dairy operation in California, so maybe Devin can still cownoodle with Gem there.

The story is a hell of a read, a ripping write-around in the best New Journamalism style, complete with reporter Ryan Lizza finding himself first very, very welcome in Sibley, then increasingly the object of paranoid surveillance by the Nunes clan. When he gets to town, everyone says they're big fans of Donald Trump, but when he asks about Trump's Deport Everyone immigration policy, the nearly universal reply is, as a very friendly cafe owner says, "Well, we don't agree with him on that!" Which is maybe not the reaction you'd expect in a town represented by, of all people, nigh fascist and full on white supremacist Steve King.
