  • Breaking: Federal court blocks EPA rule on waterways

    Hotair ^ | 08/27/2015 | Ed Morrissey
    It hasn’t been a good month for the EPA. A few weeks ago, EPA engineers accidentally breached a mine dam and polluted waterways in southwestern Colorado and northern New Mexico, after having bullied the landowner to access the mine. Ironically, their new rule that expands their authority by redefining the legal term “navigable waterways” was about to take effect tomorrow. A federal judge in North Dakota shut that down this afternoon, ruling that the EPA had exceeded its authority and jurisdiction from Congress: A federal judge in North Dakota on Thursday blocked a new Obama administration rule that would...
  • Disarming America, the Final Solution?

    08/27/2015 10:27:06 AM PDT · by samovar123 · 13 replies
    A new report touted by NBC News Maggie Fox makes the claim that the level of firearm ownership can be correlated with homicide deaths of Law Enforcement Officers. More civilian gun ownership in a given area, more dead police. Study authors David Sewedler and David Hemenway would later admit that perhaps this homicide rate was actually driven by criminals. The criminal offender theory draws the not-so-remarkable conclusion that police who have frequent encounters with violent criminals are more likely to be injured or killed. Not all that surprising a proposition, is it? Of course, gun hating members of the media...

    The powerful Globalist players at the Council on Foreign Relations, the Bilderberg Group, and the Trilateral Commission are certainly watching the presidential campaign of Donald Trump. Trump has already made statements about immigration they find troubling. They may or may not be taking Trumps presidential run seriously. They may or may not view him as an inconsequential blowhard, a shoot-from-the-hip cowboy who forgets today what he said yesterdaybut today the New York Times has made reference to Trump in a way that will make these Globalist heavy hitters pause and blink while drinking their morning coffee (Here in As Stock...

    Stock markets around the world have beenposting big losses for the last few days. The route was especially rough this morning, with the DOW Jones at one point falling 1,000 points in less than an hour. At the heart of the current slide is an issue which could impact many tech companies:economic weakness in China. Two weeks ago China's government made an aggressive move todevalue its currency. This followed several weeks of tumult in the Chinese stock market, during which the government had also interceded with force. Taken together, investors saw a Chinese market where growth was flagging. That...

    The defining moment of Donald Trumps Friday night campaign rally in Mobile, Ala. was when the GOP candidate for president called Jeff Sessions onto the stage. The four-term U.S. senator put on one of Trumps trademark MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN hats. Sessions may well be the Senates most unrepentant racist. He was once nominated for a federal judgeship, but his history of racism including praising the KKK and calling the Voting Rights Act intrusive tanked his nomination. Trump isnt supposed to be a serious candidate, and an endorsement from a U.S. senator is a huge step for him....

    While most of the media attention after last weeks GOP presidential debate has been focused on Donald Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz has seen a huge jump in his poll numbers, and apparently an explosion in campaign contributions since he took the stage. Check it out! Id say 225,000 contributions with an average contribution of $68 is quite impressive. Its important to note that a lot of these contributions are coming from ordinary Americans, making this a true grassroots effort, rather than bowing to the will of corporations in order to get funding. One of the reasons people seem to be...

Over 50,000 petition signatures were gathered and Parker threw them out saying she didnt care, that HERO would stand.

Then Parker violated religious rights profoundly by subpoenaing several pastors who were not parties to the litigation, ordering them to turn over all communications regarding the ordinance, the mayor,...

    Women are the next frontier in the firearms industry. Over the past few years, women have become the fastest growing demographic of gun owners. Theyre responsible for the surge in gun ownership in states like Colorado, and women are lining up across the country for their concealed carry permits. This isnt a new phenomenon. While the liberal urban-based eliteand their allies in the mediaview gun owners as a group comprised mostly of white, conservative men, Louisa Fitzgerald wrote on the feminist site Jezebel that women gun owners often defy stereotypes.

And noted climate-denialist and baseball drone George Effing Will has staked out the bold position that many of these candidates have gone so far around the bend that they've crossed some kind of termination barrier. It is, therefore, especially disheartening that Cruz, who clerked for Chief Justice William Rehnquist and who is...

    Citing unnamed "federal law enforcement officials," The New York Times reports that the Justice Department probably will file federal hate crime charges against Dylann Roof in connection with last week's massacre at the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston. Since Roof already faces nine murder charges in state court, where he will be subject to the death penalty if convicted, an additional federal prosecution seems gratuitous. It does not even offer the prospect of a more severe punishment. To the contrary, the maximum penalty Roof would face under federal law is life in prison, while there is a distinct possibility that...

    The U.S. Civil War was a war that never should have been fought. Some 620,000 men died because slavery, an inhumane and evil practice, was permitted in many portions of this country. The South gets most of the blame for that, but the north benefited from the regime as well, even though it didn’t directly practice enslavement at the time of the war. I used to think the war was a bit more complicated than I do now, having had my mind changed thanks to some relatively recent guided readings of President Abraham Lincoln. But long story short, the...

It’d be more accurate to say that the effort to brand Christian teachings that undermine progressivism as “hate speech” has already begun in the public sphere, with the fate of the private sphere still undetermined. Based on early indications, though, merely entertaining an opponent of...

    The more we read of the escapades or listen to the remarks of William Jefferson Clinton, the less it seems he wants his wife to be president. Even the court eunuchs at the Washington Post are starting to worry. Now naturally, Bill cannot come out and say as much, not even to himself in the small hours of the morning. But the way hes behaving under fire I gotta pay our bills! does the talking for him. As attractive as a Third Clinton Presidency may be in fantasy, Id wager the reality of being First Man gives Bill...

    It's quite astonishing to watch what is unfolding in America today as our media engages in self-censorship while acting as apologists for the actions of Islamic terrorism. By doing this, the media not only sacrifices the freedom of speech that is essential to our pluralistic society, but it also promotes the fear that jihadists seek to instill by dictating what is and isn't "off limits" to debate. This is already happening with news reporters such as Ayman Mohyeldin of NBC now calling for special speech protections for Islam in the wake of Sunday's terrorist attack in Garland, Texas.

    Circling the Drain in Baltimore Commentary for 3 May 2015 The NSA has made a coloring book for kids. Why not? Our intelligence community has been catering to adult children for the last fifty years. Political correctness at the NSA, as with the CIA, long ago reached a level incompatible with national security. The NSA even has an Earth Day mascot/cartoon character. As a provocation, political correctness is a scheme for neutralizing and discrediting Americas most important institutions. Long ago James Burnham explained that latter-day liberalism is the ideology of Western suicide. And who, in the end, will fight for...

    Everyone in Moscow tells you that if you want to understand Russia's foreign policy and its view of its place the world, the person you need to talk to is Fyodor Lukyanov. Lukyanov is the chair of Russia's Council on Foreign and Defense Policy, as well as the editor-in-chief of the journal Russia in Global Affairs, which are something like the Russian equivalents of America's Council on Foreign Relations and Foreign Affairs though the Russian versions are considered much closer to the state and its worldview.

    Just because youre not interested in politics doesnt mean politics isnt interested in you. Americans seem to have forgotten this dictum. A brand-new poll, taken in the form of an online survey, was just issued by the Pew Research Center. It paints a melancholy picture about the abysmal state of knowledge the U.S. public possesses on public affairs the more so when you reflect that self-selection was probably present. In other words, you probably are brighter than Joe Sixpack if you could be bothered to take the test in the first place. Most people knew who Martin Luther King...

    Muslim agitation, attrition, the litigation jihad accompanies all counter terror programs in these United States. We are constantly being told, scolded, admonished and clubbed with the now well worn meme that “only a tiny minority” “a radical few” Muslims engage in jihad. And yet we never see Muslim organizations supporting, encouraging cooperation and applauding any counter terror efforts.Why is that? Based on everything we are constantly being told about moderate Muslims – this is an impossibility. And yet this impossibility is our constant companion.Is it any wonder there is a stream of young Muslims from these communities and mosques flocking...

    Campaign Canards: Dont fall for these electoral fallacies by Daniel Clark Now that candidates are officially entering the 2016 race, its only a matter of time before political pundits and historians start regurgitating every factoid, tidbit and dose of conventional wisdom theres ever been about presidential campaigns. Unfortunately, most of them will be wrong. In particular, here are some of the most stubborn electoral fallacies that we can expect to hear repeated over the next 18 months: * The New Hampshire primary results are very important. From a fundraising standpoint, there may be some truth to that, but the...

    One day a fun loving partier and then transformed into someone more closely resembling a devout Muslim when he returned. That is according to his friend. Rogerio Franca, who lived near the Tsarnaev family in Cambridge, Massachusetts, told jurors Tamerlan was a partier before his trip to Russia but transformed into someone more closely resembling a devout Muslim when he returned. Most of the time he was drunk, most of the time he was high, Franca said of Tamerlan before his transformation. Afterward, his neighbor Franca said he saw Tamerlan in downtown Boston and he appeared different he grew...

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sN1qSRgKoU0While police stood by and watched the city of Baltimore succumb to looting and plundering, one lone Vietnam veteran stood in front of them, and in front of rioters, and took control of the situation like only a veteran can. Robert Valentine, who initially identified himself as just a soldier, was caught by CNN cameras yelling at the rioters to go away. Shockingly, they listened. CNN reporter Joe Johns asked Valentine if he was concerned for his own safety when he confronted the mob. I did 30 years, OK, came out a Master Sergeant. Ive seen more than all this,...
