  • House votes to curb Syrian refugees, snubs Obama veto threat (veto-proof 289-137 margin)

    In a stinging rebuke to President Barack Obama by Republicans and Democrats, the House ignored a veto threat Thursday and overwhelmingly approved GOP legislation erecting fresh hurdles for Syrian and Iraqi refugees trying to enter the United States. Forty-seven Democrats joined all but two Republicans as the House passed the measure by a veto-proof 289-137 margin, a major setback to the lame duck president on an issue —the Islamic State group and the refugees fleeing it — that shows no signs of easing. The vote exceeded the two-thirds majority required to override a veto, and came despite a rushed, early...
  • Poll: Trump, Clinton way ahead in Nevada [Trump 38% Carson 18% Rubio 12% Cruz 7%]

    Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are way ahead in a new poll conducted for Morning Consult of registered voters in Nevada. This should be taken with a grain of salt because caucusgoers and registered voters are much different universes. And Nevada is very hard to poll, especially for low-turnout caucuses and especially on the GOP side. Those caveats in mind, the survey is very similar to one done by CNN a month ago that showed both Trump and Clinton with huge leads.

    SUN VALLEY, Nev. (AP) — One of the first, actual on-the-ground disruptions caused by new U.S. efforts to protect the greater sage grouse isn't on a cattle ranch in Oregon or an oil field in Colorado. It's in the backyard of a residential neighborhood north of Reno, Nevada, where plans to acquire federal land to build a badly needed school are on hold because the government considers it sage grouse habitat. On Tuesday in Reno, U.S. District Judge Miranda Du is scheduled to hear from opponents who are suing to block the new regulations. They say the rules will cause...

    Senate Democrats launched athird consecutive filibuster of the bipartisan defense appropriations bill yesterday, once againblocking consideration of legislation that would fund the United States military and pay members of our armed forces. Yes, it's okay to be thoroughly perplexed bythis development. Remember, the ostensible reason that Democrats have engaged in this obstruction over recent months -- which also entailedfilibustering the Veterans Affairs appropriations bill -- was to exploit the troops and veterans as leverage to force Republicans to agree to higher federal spending on unrelated matters. It was a cynical play, but thanks in part to President Obama'shyper-partisan veto, it...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders brought marijuana into the national conversation last week, calling for legalizing and regulating the drug. Under his plan, people in possession of the substance would be treated no differently than people smoking cigarettes or drinking alcohol. By removing marijuana from the list of dangerous drugs, Sanders' move would allow states to legalize the marijuana without Washington having a say. Beyond campaign speeches meant to appeal to young voters, a host of state ballot initiatives on marijuana will be greeting voters next November. In California, which became the first state to legalize medical marijuana in 1996, residents may...

This week, new CNN/ORC polls in South Carolina and Nevada showed Trump with growing leads in both states, pushing past what some pundits thought was a plateau in his poll numbers. The real estate mogul has double-digit leads in both states, which could be key to his primary strategy. Trump leads second-place Ben Carson 38 percent to 22 percent in Nevada, and in South Carolina is beating Carson by a margin of 36 percent to 18...

Colorado HealthOP announced Friday that the state Division of Insurance has de-certified it as an eligible insurance company. That's because the cooperative relied on federal support, and federal authorities announced last month they wouldn't be able to pay most of what they owed in a program designed to help health insurance co-ops get established. The Colorado announcement makes the co-op the seventh in the nation to collapse. Similar nonprofit insurers have already failed in Kentucky, Louisiana, Iowa/Nebraska, Nevada, New York...

    A battle over sanctuary cities is dividing Senate Republicans.

But its unclear whether the bill can get through the Senate and not just because of opposition from Democrats. In addition to limiting federal money for sanctuary cities, Sen. David Vitter's (R-La.) bill would increase the amount of prison time an undocumented immigrant could serve if they re-enter the United States after having previously been deported. Conservatives like his plan, but it has drawn opposition from Sens. Jeff...

    Billions of barrels of oil have been discovered in Israel, and this discovery could essentially make Israel energy independent for many decades to come. But there is just one problem. This discovery was made in the Golan Heights. If you are not familiar with the Golan Heights, it is an area that Israel took from Syria during the Six-Day War of 1967. The government of Israel considers the Golan Heights to now be part of Israeli territory, but the United Nations does not recognize Israel’s claim. Instead, the UN still recognizes Syrian sovereignty over that area. So now that massive...
