    Ignoring the wide public support for a 20-week abortion ban, New Mexico Democrats killed two bills Tuesday that would have protected these late-term babies from abortion. The bills failed in a state Senate committee vote Wednesday after an hours-long debate about abortion, according to The New Mexico Political Report. The bill failed in a party-line vote of 5-4, the report states. The legislation, sponsored by state Sen. Bill Sharer, would have banned abortions at 20 weeks when unborn babies can feel pain and defined viability as “when the life of the unborn child may be continued indefinitely by natural or...

    Defense Department bases no longer will accept driver’s licenses from five states as proof of ID -- a consequence of the implementation of a controversial post-9/11 law. The decision, which affects residents of Minnesota, Illinois, Missouri, New Mexico and Washington, was announced Wednesday. Residents from those five states, going forward, will need another form of ID such as a passport to enter. The move marks one of the first big changes after the government started to implement a 2005 security law known as the REAL ID Act. The legislation was meant to tighten standards for government-issued IDs – like driver’s...

    Selecting San Francisco's former police chief to head the U.S. Border Patrol would encourage more illegal border crossings because she has a record of not enforcing federal immigration laws, Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., argues. Heather Fong advocated San Francisco's "sanctuary city" policy of non-cooperation with federal immigration officials, Johnson said in a letter Monday to U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske. "The selection of such a candidate would send a strong message-both in the U.S. and outside of the U.S.-that enforcing our immigration laws is not a priority of U.S. Customs and Border Protection," Johnson wrote.

    It’s time to talk seriously about the energy industry in New Mexico. And you have some work to do. Whether your business is directly involved in this industry, it’s very much tied to its outcomes — and right now, there’s much concern about that in the state. After all, some 30 percent of New Mexico’s tax base comes from oil and gas. And you’ve read the headlines we’ve been reporting on how that sector is faring. If you haven’t, let me recap — it’s a fracking mess. The price of oil dropping more than a year ago has resulted in...

    Sunday the Navajo Nation Office of the President and Vice President released a statement to the public in regards to FEMA and the EPA's refusal for assistance in cleaning up the toxic water in the San Jaun River. "We are extremely frustrated with the news that both FEMA and the U.S. EPA have declined our urgent requests to continue assistance to the Navajo Nation. U.S. EPA caused this entire disaster, they have harmed the people, the water and the land. I appreciated the fact U.S. EPA took responsibility and I was hoping for the U.S. EPA to prove to the...

    A detective who worked narcotics with an undercover officer walked up to a car, shot his fellow officer twice, and then seven more times against the victims pleas. The number of signs that Albuquerque Police Lieutenant Greg Brachle ignored or didnt see before putting nine .45-caliber bullets into his fellow officers body are simply staggering.

    A cache of Atari game cartridges dug up in a New Mexico landfill last year has generated more than $100,000 in sales over the last several months. The April 2014 dig ended speculation surrounding an urban legend and proved it to be true that Atari discarded hundreds of games, including E.T. The Extraterrestrial, more than 30 years ago. In addition to the E.T. cartridges, Joseph Lewandowski found more than 60 other titles including Asteroids, Missile Command, Warlords, Star Raiders, Swordquest, Centipede and Super Breakout.

    BISMARCK, N.D. A federal judge in North Dakota on Thursday blocked a new Obama administration rule that would give the federal government jurisdiction over some state waterways. U.S. District Judge Ralph Erickson of North Dakota issued a temporary injunction against a the rule, which gives the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Army Corps of Engineers authority to protect some streams, tributaries and wetlands under the Clean Water Act. The rule was scheduled to take effect Friday. The risk of irreparable harm to the states is both imminent and likely, Judge Erickson said in blocking the rule from taking effect....

    From The Day the Earth Stood Still to Close Encounters of the Third Kind to E.T., pop culture is filled with stories about friendly, curious extraterrestrials visiting Earth to learn more about mankind. For Apollo 14 veteran Edgar Mitchell that plotline is less fiction than it is reality. The sixth man to walk the surface of the moon told Mirror online that he believes peace-keeping aliens visited our planet to prevent a nuclear war between Russia and the United States. The idea sounds far-fetched, but Mitchell claims that military insiders viewed strange flying crafts cruising over U.S. missile bases and...

    DENVERColorado Gov. John Hickenloopers big gulp of water from the formerly orange Animas River wasnt just icky, it was reckless and irresponsible, said New Mexicos top environmental official. New Mexico environment department secretary Ryan Flynn said Mr. Hickenloopers decision to fill up his water bottle from the site of the EPAs 3-million-gallon wastewater spill in Durango, Colorado, sends the wrong message. If its true, its a reckless and irresponsible act by a public official, said Mr. Flynn in the Farmington (N.M.) Daily Times. He might as well stick 15 cigarettes in his mouth and light them all at the same...

    DENVER Unlike BP, which was fined $5.5 billion for the 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster, the EPA will pay nothing in fines for unleashing the Animas River spill. Sovereign immunity. The government doesnt fine itself, said Thomas L. Sansonetti, former assistant attorney general for the Justice Departments division of environment and natural resource. New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez and other lawmakers have called on the EPA to hold itself to the same standards as it would a private company in the aftermath of Wednesdays accident, in which an EPA-led crew uncorked a 3 million-gallon spill of orange wastewater from the...
