Fairhaven College’s World Issues Forum

May 9, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Wed 5/9 from 12:00 PM to 1:20 PM

Mel Goodman will discuss the first 16 months of the Trump presidency in terms of his personnel appointments; his policies; and his process of governance. Both domestic and foreign policies will be examined, but the emphasis will be on national and international security. This has been an unusual and unprecedented presidency and, since we are in uncharted waters for the most part, there will be ample opportunity for discussion and analysis.

The event will be held in the Fairhaven Auditorium, located on the third floor of the Fairhaven College building, 516 High Street Bellingham, WA 98225.

Open to the public.

The Trump Supreme Court’s War on the Environment

Last year, the court struck down a proposed EPA rule that was designed to protect millions of acres of wetlands from pollution even before the regulation had been made final.  Similarly, the court limited EPA’s ability to regulate greenhouse gas emissions form power plants even before the ruling had taken effect.  Typically, the Supreme Court is the last venue to hear a case, after opinions have been made by lower courts, but this is not so in Roberts’ aggressive court.

Trump’s Debate: a Victory for Pathological Liars Everywhere

Jeb Bush had it right eight years ago, when he said that “Donald Trump is a chaos candidate, and he would be a chaos president.”  Trump’s first and second day as president were dispositive.  On the first day, there was an unusual acceptance speech that talked about “American Carnage.”  That turned out to be a prediction of the next four years, culminating in an attack on the Capitol in an effort to overturn a free and fair election.
