    Great IDEAS TO SAVE MONEY BY TRUMP
    Save US Citizens $3 Billion used to power a couple forklifts! :

    Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy

    The EERE works "to create and sustain American leadership in the transition to a global clean energy economy." What does that look like? In one recent demonstration project, the EERE helped a South Carolina-based BMW plant use bio-methane gas from a nearby landfill to power some forklifts.

    If below is true it sounds like a dumb move.



    To date, third-party evaluations have assessed one-third of EERE's research and development portfolio and found that an EERE taxpayer investment of $12 billion has already yielded an estimated net economic benefit to the United States of more than $230 billion, with an overall annual return on investment of more than 20%.


    STRATEGIC GOALS
    EERE aims to achieve the following strategic goals:

    1. Accelerate the development and adoption of sustainable transportation technologies.
      Through improvements in engine efficiency, vehicle weight reduction, battery performance, drop-in biofuels, fuel cell performance, and reduced biofuel and hydrogen production costs, EERE can meet this goal. This includes supporting advanced vehicles and alternative fuels.
    2. Increase the generation of electric power from renewable sources.
      Through reducing the cost of hydropower and solar, wind, wave and tidal, and geothermal power, EERE can increase renewable generation.

    3. Improve the energy efficiency of our homes, buildings, and industries.
      EERE has set milestones for providing energy savings of 25%–50% by 2020–2030. By developing new materials, technologies and processes for American homes, buildings, and industry, EERE will implement minimum energy performance standards, improve building energy codes, and support home weatherization.

    4. Stimulate the growth of a thriving domestic clean energy manufacturing industry.
      Through reducing the life-cycle energy consumption of EERE-targeted manufactured goods by 50% by 2025, EERE will encourage the manufacture of clean energy technologies in the United States.

    5. Enable the integration of clean energy into a reliable, resilient, and efficient electricity grid.
      Through new grid-support technologies, as well as standards, test procedures, sensors, communication protocols, cyber security, and resilience these technologies need, EERE can meet clean energy goals.

    6. Lead efforts to improve federal sustainability and implementation of clean energy solutions.
      Through EERE technical support to all federal agencies and federal agency access to third-party financing, EERE can help federal agencies to be early leaders in deploying clean energy.

    7. Enable a high-performing, results-driven culture through effective management approaches and processes.
      Through enhancing and maintaining EERE's workforce and establishing clear plans to deliver on EERE's mission, the organization will see a high-performing culture.

    So, just today, Trump has flopped on china as a currency manipulator, and NATO is passe.

    This week we have him flipping on involvement in foreign wars.

    Obviously Obamacare wasn't repealed.

    We have a shit ton of Goldman folks on the payroll.

    He has no guiding policy principles because he has zero knowledge of these issues and has not thought about them at all.

    Ask me for links to support these claims.

    You're right, he's flopping like a fish, no supporting links needed. Although I'm not quite convinced it is due to zero knowledge, but my hunch is that he's been co-opted by the neo-cons/establishment agenda. Always keep in mind the guy was never an idealist...he's an opportunist. I've been saying that from day 1.

    Trump says N. Korea 'will be taken care of'
    US President Donald Trump vowed Thursday that the "problem" of North Korea "will be taken care of," as speculation mounted that Pyongyang might be preparing another nuclear or missile test.

    "North Korea is a problem, the problem will be taken care of," Trump told reporters.

    Separately on Twitter he expressed confidence China, Pyongyang's sole ally, would "properly deal with North Korea."

    But, "if they are unable to do so, the U.S., with its allies, will! U.S.A."

    The ominous comments came the same day Trump ordered the dropping of the biggest non-nuclear bomb the US military possesses on Afghanistan, targeting a complex used by the Islamic State group.

    A US aircraft carrier and its naval strike group has been diverted to the Korean peninsula.

    Trump also flexed his military muscle last week by ordering cruise missile strikes on a Syrian airbase the US believed was the origin of an alleged chemical weapons attack on civilians in a northern Syria town.

    This barely controlled chaos cannot go on in the present fashion. Yet, it will go on until something or someone stops it.

    His zero knowledge is plainly evident.

    I don't see how that's possible, even if you haven't been paying attention, simply based on the embedded links in this thread alone. But that's your take, so fair enough.

    Lets try the inverse, can you please direct me to an example of his exhibiting knowledge on a subject related to presidential duties, governmental operation, geopolitics, history? (This would be by him and not his staff)

    Increasingly republicans campaign on tough sounding 2-4 word slogans. Unfortunately their knowledge of the subjects is only 2-4 inches deep. Trump is the natural end result of this type of politicking.

    Who would u trust more to handle North Korea? Trump or Hillary Clinton? Trump brought China to the table and laid it out. Within days- china forces made unprecedented military moves against N Korea. Why? Because we now have a President with balls.

    Trump had a serious talk with China here are the results:

    Gas stations in North Korea's main city restrict services, speculation that China is reducing supply
