It has been quite a 24 hours as the Democrats have pulled out some major wins in this off-year election which is bad news for the President as he is traveling in Asia.  What caught my eye was Rick Perry’s nonsense that was featured by Professor Turley that is telling–this is not as bad as one of the other characters, Wilbur Ross, that the New York Times noted in its’ DealBook this morning–this is as the so-called Tax Reform Bill that the Speaker and others have been pushing will add 1.7 Billion Dollars to the deficit…

Here is the “snapshot” that blew me away on Wilbur Ross:

The Forbes article accusing the commerce secretary of inflating his net worth has been the talk of Wall Street and Washington. Here’s how declarations of Mr. Ross’s net worth have evolved over the past two years:
• $2.9 billion, according to a Forbes estimate in 2016
• Less than $700 million, according to Mr. Ross’s financial disclosure forms after his nomination to lead the Commerce Department
• $3.7 billion, Mr. Ross told Forbes last month, arguing that the bulk of his assets were in a trust
Dan Alexander of Forbes pulls no punches in asserting that the financier has been dishonest about his assets, and the magazine has pulled Mr. Ross from its list of the richest people in America. From the article:
It seems clear that Ross lied to us, the latest in an apparent sequence of fibs, exaggerations, omissions, fabrications and whoppers that have been going on with Forbes since 2004. In addition to just padding his ego, Ross’ machinations helped bolster his standing in a way that translated into business opportunities.
A former Ross colleague told Forbes, “Wilbur doesn’t have an issue with bending the truth.” A spokesman for the Commerce Department, responding to the FT, pointed to the Forbes article’s use of several anonymous sources.
In related news: A Trump administration official says that Mr. Ross will sell all of his holdings in shipping companies tied to associates of Vladimir Putin, which were disclosed in the so-called Paradise Papers. (CNBC)

..and so Rick Perry, here it is–this is as China is moving on to Green Energy and the World is evolving big time–as the President himself likes to say..sad!!!!!

With the expanding allegations of sexual assault against Harvey Weinstein and others, Energy Secretary Rick Perry appears to have the answer: fossil fuels. That’s right, more fossil fuel less sexual assault.
