    U.S. President Donald Trump is expected to sign a measure as early as Tuesday aimed at rescinding a major Obama administration water regulation and direct an end to the government's defense of the rule, a Trump official briefed on the plan said late Friday. Trump is expected to direct the Environmental Protection Agency to withdraw the Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule, which expands the number of waterways that are federally protected under the Clean Water Act. The rule was finalized by the EPA and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in May 2015, and was blocked by a...

    Iraqi forces and U.S. coalition troops are no longer burdened by strict rules of engagement, which some say have turned firepower requests into bureaucratic nightmares. U.S. Army Lt. Col. James Browning, commander of 2nd Battalion, 508th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division, recently spoke with reporters about a Dec. 26 directive that streamlined the process of delivering aid.

In a pair of memos, Kelly offered more detail on plans for the agency to hire thousands of additional enforcement agents, expand the pool of immigrants who are prioritized for removal, speed up deportation hearings and enlist local law enforcement to help make arrests. The new directives would supersede nearly all of those issued under previous administrations, Kelly said, including measures from President Barack Obama aimed at focusing deportations...

The injunction was issued in August by Judge Reed O’Connor of the Federal District Court for the Northern District of Texas as part of a lawsuit filed by more than a dozen states over the Obama administration’s position that Title IX, the federal law that bans sex discrimination in schools, protects transgender students. Under that interpretation,...

    If Gov. Charlie Baker really wants to prove his anti-Donald Trump street cred, he'll open the State House to illegal immigrants. That way he can help deal with the overflow of all the illegals who will seek sanctuary from deportation in Boston Mayor Marty Walsh's City Hall. The mayor, who went ballistic over the temporary initiation of extreme vetting of refugees and immigrants from seven predominantly Muslim countries, invited threatened illegal immigrants to seek safety in City Hall

    “Winning is everything,” Rahm Emanuel told a Stanford University audience in discussing the current political situation — and his frustration with fellow Democrats. “If you don’t win, you can’t make public policy.” And, Emanuel tells Democrats, they should plan to be in the wilderness for a while — perhaps quite a while. “It ain’t gonna happen in 2018.

    Intel chief executive Brian Krzanich used a surprise Oval Office appearance Wednesday to announce a $7 billion investment in an Arizona factory that has sat empty since construction wrapped up three years ago.
