    By now, the public is well aware of the “Green New Deal” proposed by freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. They have not responded well to calls for forced veganism and banning airplanes, let alone giving up the American way of life made possible by cheap energy. But while Ocasio-Cortez has taken the brunt of the media focus, environmental groups have developed a new strategy to get their way: pass a type of “Green New Deal” state by state.

    Some 22.3 percent of fatally injured motorists who were tested for drugs tested positive for marijuana in 2016, a figure that researchers say has "increased substantially" in recent years as states have legalized the drug for recreational or medicinal use, according to a new report. The finding, in a study released Thursday by the Governors Highway Safety Association, was one of several regarding the growing prevalence of drugs in vehicle fatalities. The report also found that 44 percent of drivers killed in automobile accidents in 2016 who were tested for drugs tested positive for one or more substances – a...

    Alec Baldwin on Friday defended comedian Kathy Griffin for the photograph she posed for with a severed head resembling President Trump. In a series of tweets , Baldwin, who frequently impersonates Trump on Saturday Night Live, recalled his own experience making a joke about a politician. “Dear Kathy Griffin, Kathy....baby...I've been there. The whole Henry Hyde thing [with] Conan, where we bring out an oxygen mask at the end? a joke. That's what I thought. That's what we intended. No one walked out of the studio and said, "No!

    Max Ohr considered himself the creative director, the “go-to guy,” the “camp counselor” at the Ghost Ship warehouse, and on that Friday night, he was also the doorman. He had spent the day getting ready for an electronic music party upstairs, arranging the sound system and cleaning up the fantastical bohemian space where he and about two dozen of his fellow artists lived. Before 9 p.m., the lanky jewelry maker with a scraggly beard and crescent tattoo on his cheekbone began welcoming visitors. They arrived in small groups, more than 100 guests in all from a tight-knit music and art...

U.S. Sen. David Vitter on Wednesday sent a letter to Louisiana Attorney General Buddy Caldwell and the director of the state's Department of Children and Family Services asking for "aggressive action on the fraudulent events during the recent outage of the Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) system which led to massive theft of groceries in several Louisiana locations."

    Planned Parenthood on Monday sued the state of Arizona in an effort to overturn a law that blocks funding for its health clinics because the organization also performs abortions. The law, signed by Governor Jan Brewer in May, is part of a national campaign against Planned Parenthood orchestrated by conservatives Republican lawmakers who oppose abortions. In the past two years, 13 states have taken steps to eliminate funding for Planned Parenthood, and the organization has filed lawsuits in six of them, including Arizona. Planned Parenthood says abortions account for only 3 percent of its services, which include cancer screening and...

    President Obama came to the right person to raise money Thursday night: “Sex and the City” icon Sarah Jessica Parker. In one memorable episode, she said (as Carrie), “I like my money right where I can see it -- hanging in my closet.” The president probably would prefer it in his campaign coffers. At the Manhattan home of Parker and her husband, Matthew Broderick, Obama raised about $2 million, with 50 people paying $40,000 each to attend. Broderick had to work – he’s starring in the Gershwin musical “Nice Work if You Can Get It” on Broadway. Others in attendance...

    Michelle 'loves french fries, pizza,' president reveals on Leno show By Geneva Sands-Sadowitz - 10/26/11 09:54 AM ET President Obama said his wife loves pizza and french fries during his appearance Tuesday night on Jay Leno's show. Though the first lady has used her office to campaign against obesity and to tout healthy eating habits, she's OK with fattier foods in moderation, Obama said. Obama made the remarks after Leno questioned whether the first lady would be upset with her husband's Monday visit to Roscoe's House of Chicken and Waffles, a famous soul-food restaurant in Hollywood. "Michelle — quiet as...

    Neither rookies nor seasoned veterans were spared in Tuesday's House Democratic bloodbath, which saw Republicans defeat three major committee chairmen and at least seven lawmakers who claimed 20 years' seniority or more in Congress. While the losses of 16 freshmen "Obama babies" — those elected during the president's 2008 sweep — were expected, the number of long-serving Democrats who lost re-election this week is staggering, and suggests a widespread dissatisfaction with Washington. All told, with about a dozen races still uncalled, Democrats have already shed 376 years of congressional experience, and that could go as high as 430 years if...

    There they go again. For the fifth time since July, the first family has set plans to board Air Force One for a frilly vacation, a 10-day return trip to exclusive Martha's Vineyard where they are expected to stay at the 28-acre oceanfront Blue Heron Farm that rents for up to $50,000 a week. But first the Obamas will be traveling to the Gulf Coast of Florida for a mini-vacation as a way to encourage other vacationing Americans to head to the beaches that have been shunned by tourists worried about oil-slicked sands due to the Gulf oil spill.

    HADLEY, Mass. - Lawyers for three teenage girls accused of participating in the bullying of a 15-year-old girl who committed suicide entered not guilty pleas Thursday on their behalf to charges including civil rights violations and criminal harassment. Ashley Longe, Sharon Chanon Velazquez and Flannery Mullins, all 16, did not appear in Franklin-Hampshire Juvenile Court for their arraignments. A judge ordered them to have no contact with the family of Phoebe Prince, a South Hadley High School freshman who hanged herself in January after what prosecutors called an "unrelenting" three-month bullying campaign by six teenagers. Prosecutors say Prince was targeted...

It's now like politics or religion -- your opinion, whatever it may be, is completely calcified and won't change no matter what the new evidence. Either you think he's a golfer who ought to be left alone, or he's a cheater who deserves scorn. Either you think his family problems should be off-limits, or you think his transgressions go beyond his personal life. Nobody's going to let any new light in, so why not take...

    While there has been an international arms embargo on China since the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre, this ban did not cover espionage and computer security hardware and software. China has exploited this by importing all the hardware and software they could get access to. Some items were considered illegal for export for national security reasons. But lots of valuable gear is available to sale, although sometimes only to government agencies. The Chinese have been particularly keen to obtain the latest corporate Internet security and user management software. This stuff has been a key component in the Chinese effort to manage...

    Presidential candidate, Senator Barack Obama took issue with Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts’ characterization of a judge’s role as similar to that of an umpire at a baseball game. “Justice Roberts said he saw himself just as an umpire,” Obama said. “But we need somebody who’s got the empathy to recognize that the rules may need to be different for some people. Should a batter with bad eyesight or slow reflexes get the same number of strikes as a more capable player? Should an obese runner have to run the same 90 feet between bases? Roberts’ attitude of indifference...

He was still in the airport at Fort Jackson, S.C., with other members of his Minnesota National Guard unit, when an officer reprimanded him publicly for leaving a paper cup on his seat in the airport. "I was thinking, is this what it's going to be like the whole time?" Luke said. "I'm not even on the bus...
