    Government officials retreated Saturday from federal property in Gold Butte, Nev., leaving behind some 389 “trespass cattle” that had been impounded as the result of a decades-long dispute between a local rancher and the U.S. government. But while the story has managed to capture the attention of thousands of Americans, it has also managed to confuse thousands more. Indeed, from questions regarding property rights to whether a Democratic senator was involved in the cattle roundup, many have been left wondering what it’s all about and searching for the facts.[snip] Does Sen. Harry Reid have a connection to the Bureau of...

    I have no objections to Jeb Bush running for president. He obviously has a wide appeal as a potential candidate. With a Mexican wife, and as a man who speaks fluent Spanish, he would be able to increase the Hispanic vote in the GOP column. On the other hand, many in the Republican base find his position on immigration untenable, and would fight him tooth and nail during primary season. He is also a serious advocate of education reform. His support of Common Core, however, will also find many who are in the conservative ranks objecting, since they fear that...

This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990.(The White House has Proposed) cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas.

Over the past several years, we’ve seen a growing number of attempts to limit free speech by the Obama administration.

    The (New York Times) reports that, according to insurance companies and industry experts, one in five people who signed up for health insurance under Obamacare failed to pay their premium on time and therefore did not receive coverage in January. Given Obamacare’s disastrous rollout, the White House had urged insurers to give people more time to pay, and did so. But some people missed even the extended deadlines. Presumably, human nature is an important cause of the failure to pay on time. In addition, some people must have changed their minds about whether they wanted coverage, and in some cases...

    The GOP Texas senator was saying that D’Souza’s indictment on election fraud charges was ‘an abuse of power,’ when Bob Schieffer interrupted to say, ‘We are going to leave this for another day. Conservative commentator and best-selling author, Dinesh D'Souzam pleaded not guilty to federal charges that he used straw donors to exceed campaign contributions to a U.S. Senate candidate in 2012. Sen. Ted Cruz is joining supporters of anti-Obama filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza, claiming the conservative pundit is being targeted with election fraud charges because of his critical rhetoric against the President. D'Souza has accused CBS of cutting off the...

  • Alarming trend: Attorneys general refuse to defend laws

    Liberals only enforce laws they support. Check it out: In what appears to be the latest example in a trend of attorneys general refusing to defend laws passed by legislatures and voters, Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring announced Thursday that he will no longer defend his state’s constitutional amendment defining marriage solely as the union of one man and one woman. But a leading traditional marriage advocate is blasting Herring for casting aside the duties of his office to pursue a partisan agenda. As a member of the state senate, Herring voted for the 2006 state constitutional amendment that defines...

    Officials in Oregon have ruled that Sweet Cakes by Melissa, a bakery that made national news after refusing to make a cake for a gay wedding last year, violated a lesbian couple’s civil rights.

    <p>New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is the jerk who double-crossed Mitt Romney, sold his buddy out, and helped to re-elect Barack Obama. In hundreds of media interviews since the Presidential election, Wayne Allyn Root has warned: "The GOP can never again trust Chris Christie. Christie stabbed Mitt Romney in the back. Once a traitor, always a traitor. He cannot be our Presidential nominee." Now, Christie finds himself embroiled in a scandal.</p>

    1. So just how bad is this George Washington Bridge traffic incident? It's bad. Pretty bad. Super bad, even. Chief executives just don't use the power of government to exact revenge on ordinary citizens for what they take to be political insubordination. To put this in context, imagine what it would be like for a presidential administration to(close down national parks) in order to intentionally inflict pain on people trying to visit them. Or if some other administration (had the IRS target individuals and groups from the opposing side. Thankfully, things like that never, ever happen.)2) Wait a minute, I...

    War hero and former Republican congressman Allen West is asking how long it will take for “you people” – white Americans – to realize that their president “abjectly despises” them. In a commentary posted Tuesday on his website, West, who represented Florida in Congress after an extended career in the U.S. military, confronted the issue of racism. Citing Obama Attorney General Eric Holder’s warning that schools must drop policies that “disproportionately punish minorities,” West asserted it’s not racist to punish blacks more when they are causing more trouble. “I taught high school for one year in Deerfield Beach, Fla., and...
