Rep. Ed Markey (D-MA) said Thursday night that he was disappointed to see Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney disavow his belief in climate change.
As the governor of Massachusetts, Romney had worked to reduce the state’s greenhouse gas emissions. But at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Romney joked about the seriousness of climate change, lampooning President Barack Obama for promising to “heal the planet.”
“Mitt Romney, when he was governor of Massachusetts, he actually took state money and invested it in clean energy,” Markey said on Current TV. “When he was governor, he believed in climate change. He talked about it in his 2010 book, ‘No Apologies.’
“But talking to that Gov. Romney would be like talking to an empty chair,” Markey added. “You cannot have a conversation with him, because the precondition to winning the nomination as a Republican in 2012 is to disclaim any belief in climate change — and that’s a sad state of affairs for that party.”

‘You can buy the USA’ thanks to Trump: Counterintelligence expert
Counterintelligence expert Malcolm Nance said during a political discussion Wednesday that the United States of America has clearly become a "pay-to-play" nation under President Donald Trump.
"After 2016, it became clear that the only thing we were really going to look into was Donald Trump's relationships with Moscow.," Nance said in a discussion with SiriusXM Progress host Dean Obeidallah.
"But I think it became pretty clear to the oligarchs that they weren't going after the oligarchs, they were going after Donald Trump and a very specific link to foreign intelligence," continued Nance. "And that meant their money could talk again. You have to understand, these people were doing it to lift these crippling sanctions that Trump fought tooth and nail against."

President Donald Trump reportedly suffered a meltdown during a Wednesday meeting at the White House with congressional leaders.
Trump reportedly lectured and insulted Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), according to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY).
"I would also say one other thing. He was insulting, particularly to the speaker," Schumer told reporters after the meeting ended because Trump was too "shaken."
