Rudy Giuliani's Twitter Feed Is a Boomer Conspiracy Theory Sh*tshow
Photo Illustration by Kristen Hazzard/The Daily Beast/GettyWhen Rudy Giuliani logs into Twitter, he's presented with a world where the recent California power outages were staged by military operatives rooting out cannibal-pedophiles deep in their underground bunkers. 

It's a place where President Donald Trump only betrayed the Kurds because they were running black sites for a global deep-state cabal; where former Trump Russia adviser Fiona Hill ran an anti-Trump spy ring out of the White House; where former Hillary Clinton campaign chair John Podesta eats children; and where the pope is about to seize world power, and maybe already has. 

It is the worst that the right-wing internet fever swamp has to offer, and it is all right there, waiting for Giuliani to consume.

John Bolton ‘Increasingly Likely' to Get Subpoena From House Democrats
Sergei Gapon/AFP/GettyCongressional Democrats are eyeing for former national security adviser John Bolton to testify in their impeachment inquiry, The Daily Beast has learned. 

The possibility that they issue him a subpoena is "increasingly likely," according to a source familiar with their thinking. Bolton was President Trump's national security adviser from April 2018 until last month, when he unceremoniously left the White House. 

During his time there, events unfolded that precipitated Democrats' impeachment inquiry. Rudy Giuliani, the president's personal attorney, worked to shape Trump's relationship with Volodymyr Zelensky, who became president of Ukraine in May 2019.

Trump vs. California: In Blow to Climate, U.S. Revokes State's Stricter Auto Emissions Standards
California is in a legal battle with the Trump administration over tailpipe emissions, air quality and climate change. California recently joined nearly two dozen other states to file a lawsuit against the Trump administration after it revoked the state's air pollution standards for cars and light trucks, in its latest regulatory rollback of laws aimed at slowing the climate crisis. Auto emissions are California's single largest source of greenhouse gases. From Los Angeles, we're joined by Mary Nichols, the longtime chair of the California Air Resources Board. She has led the board in crafting California's internationally recognized climate action plan. Michael Brune, executive director of the Sierra Club, speaks with us from San Francisco.

"Biological Annihilation": The Danger of Opening Alaska's ANWR to Oil & Gas Drilling
The Trump administration is finalizing plans to open one of the world's last pristine wilderness regions, the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, to oil and fracked gas drilling. Trump is pushing the drilling at a time when climate change is permanently altering the Arctic and devastating local communities. The plan calls for the creation of landing strips, drill pads, pipeline supports, a seawater treatment plant, 175 miles of roads, and other infrastructure in Alaska's north coast. On Thursday, the House of Representatives voted to block the Trump administration from opening up Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge; however, a companion bill is unlikely to pass the Republican-controlled Senate. From Charlotte, North Carolina, we speak with Subhankar Banerjee, a professor of art and ecology at the University of New Mexico and the author of "Arctic National Wildlife Refuge: Seasons of Life and Land."
