In a small sentence, Biden made a huge point. Let’s serve people, not presidents or politics.
Trump is trying to pin all the blame for the Ukraine call that touched off the whistleblower complaint that resulted in the impeachment probe on Rick Perry.
The Office of the Special Counsel (OSC) has opened an investigation into the Trump administration’s decision to pursue a nuclear agreement with the government of Saudi Arabia, The Daily Beast reported on Monday.
Specifically, OSC “is looking at whether officials were retaliated against for raising concerns about the administration’s work related to a Saudi nuclear deal.”
The agency is reportedly reviewing “potentially improper dealings by senior members of the Trump administration in their attempt to map out a nuclear deal with Riyadh.”
U.S. Energy Secretary Rick Perry told lawmakers on Thursday he did not know whether any of the approvals he authorized for U.S. companies to sell nuclear power technology to Saudi Arabia were made after the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in October last year.
Wind and solar have combined with natural gas to produce virtually all the nation’s major new electrical capacity; coal and nuclear are economically less competitive.
On the heels of nominating former Governor Rick Perry (R-TX) to replace nuclear physicist Ernest Moniz as Secretary of Energy, President-elect Donald Trump bragged that his cabinet had the highest IQ by far of any cabinet ever assembled.
If you wondered what kind of Energy Secretary Rick Perry would be, now you have your answer. He would be a dickish one.
"Reading Rick Perry, who infamously forgot the existence of the Dept. of Energy, is Trump's pick to lead it. You can't make this crap up"
Rick Perry, who is currently facing felony abuse of power charges in Texas, has grudgingly endorsed Donald Trump for president.
Think of the advantages: Cruz can't be president, those Texas Open Carry guys won't be American citizens, and the NFL gets two foreign teams
Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry is blaming Democrats for his spectacular presidential campaign crash and burn while ignoring the fact that he is under indictment for felony abuse of power.
Indicted former Texas Gov. Rick Perry has announced that he is suspending his 2016 presidential campaign and dropping out of the race for the Republican nomination.
Trump's new national co-chairman raised doubts about his "moral center" and his "foundational beliefs" lacking a foundation in Christ
Rick Perry is no longer paying his staff, because his campaign is running low on funds.
A candidate who stumbles in the field of lesser candidates will have the dubious distinction of losing on a stage full of losers.
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton slammed Jeb Bush, Scott Walker, and Rick Perry while strongly opposing the Republican bill to defund the organization.
A Texas appeals court tossed one charge against Rick Perry but ruled that he must go to court to face a felony charge of abusing his power while governor.
Donald Trump has attacked just about everyone you care to mention at this point, and now he is taking a particularly brutal stab at John McCain (R-AZ):
Trump just now on John McCain: "He's a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren't captured."

Trump made these remarks today at the Family Leadership Summit in Ames, Iowa. You know, the state that makes Republicans behave very badly.
While Donald Trump could take issue with John McCain where policy is concerned, he prefers to take issue with John McCain personally. This seems to be Trump’s method of dealing with the opposition going into this election cycle.
But then, when you are ill-informed, if not outright ignorant on the issues, vague is good. Vague is very good. Vague doesn’t explain itself. Vague is very totalitarian in its fiats and pronouncements.
Donald Trump doesn’t really have a platform beyond how great Donald Trump is and what idiots everyone else are. He can’t explain issues he probably doesn’t understand. To date, at least, he hasn’t tried.
It is easier by far to just to insult the people who hold positions he opposes rather than try to articulate, and fail, at developing positions of his own. This is the last seven years of Republican opposition to Obama turned against the Republicans themselves, by one of their own.
And as we have noticed, they do not like it much. Particularly since Trump seems to be more skilled at it than the men and women who taught him this sort of theater works.
It is a fact that John McCain got shot down. It is a fact that he did not perform heroic deeds of daring-do in the air, like a Manfred von Richthofen, or an Eddy Rickenbacker, or Pappy Boyington. But he did survive five years of hellish conditions in a North Vietnamese prison camp, the “Hanoi Hilton.”
He did serve his country.
Unlike Donald Trump. While McCain was serving his country, risking his life in a war, Donald Trump was receiving deferments (in 1964, 1965, 1966, and 1968) to stay out of that war. Not, as Trump once claimed, because he had high lottery numbers.
As Louisiana Governor “Bobby” Jindal pointed out,
After Donald Trump spends six years in a POW camp, he can weigh in on John McCain's service
Rick Perry raised just 1.07 million dollars in the 2nd quarter of 2015. In 2012, he raised 17 million during his 1st quarter of fundraising.
A quick look around at the mass Republican implosion on the Sunday shows provided ample evidence that Donald Trump is destroying the Republican Party.
