  • 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...
  • Russia Inadvertently Posts Its Casualties In Ukraine: 2,000 Deaths, 3,200 Disabled

    Forbes ^ | 25 Aug 15 | Paul Roderick Gregory
    Russian president Vladimir Putin has decreed that all Russian casualties in peacetime be a state secret. In addition to criminal charges arising from divulging state secrets, families risk losing pensions and lump-sum payments if they reveal that their sons were killed in Ukraine. Mothers of soldiers associations have been branded foreign agents for collecting data on Russian casualties. Dissident Boris Nemtsov was murdered shortly before completing his study of Russian casualties in Ukraine. Russian civil rights organizations, working against the fog of official resistance, could confirm only several hundred battlefield deaths.

  • We Can Apply the 14th Amendment While Also Reforming Birthright Citizenship

    National Review ^ | 08/24/2015 | John Eastman
    Birthright citizenship has exploded into the national discourse. The issue is generating a lot of heat on the Republican side of the aisle in particular, because it threatens to expose the long-standing rift between the partys base and its pro-crony-capitalism establishment. Unfortunately, in arguing that the 14th Amendment requires citizenship for the children of illegal immigrants, some of the more prominent interlocutors are promoting an incorrect understanding of history. The Wall Street Journals recent editorial on the matter is a case in point, and my good friend John Yoos NR essay repeats one of the same basic flaws. The first...

    Thousands of antiabortion activists descended upon Planned Parenthood clinics on Saturday to participate in a nationwide protest aimed at cutting off federal funding for the controversial health-care organization. The demonstrations unfolded at about 320 clinics around the nation, according to organizers, with some gatherings drawing a few dozen protesters and others drawing hundreds and perhaps thousands more. The protests kicked off at 9 a.m. Saturday and included speakers, prayer groups and chants, as well as signs distributed by organizers that said Planned Parenthood sells baby parts. ***VIDEO ON LINK******

    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...
