  • Meet the red-state conservatives fighting to abolish the death penalty

    WASH POST ^ | 6/3/16 | Marin Cogan
    Colby Coash can point to the moment his evolution in thinking about the death penalty began. It was Sept. 3, 1994, and Coash — now a conservative senator in the Nebraska legislature but then a freshman at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln — decided to go with some friends to the state penitentiary. Willie Otey, convicted of first-degree murder, was set to be executed at midnight, and people were gathering in the parking lot outside. Coash can still remember the scene: the live band, the grilling meat, the revelers popping cans of beer and chanting, “Fry him!” “You wouldn’t have been...

    The attack by a man on an 8-year-old girl in a womens restroom last week in a Chicago restaurant is raising alarm about opposite-sex access to public facilities in the name of transgender rights. Police say the man, 33-year-old Reese Hartstirn, entered the womens room May 7 at Jasons Deli in Chicagos South Loop and choked the girl until she passed out. The girls mother, who was in the adjacent stall, heard her daughters screams and rescued her, while restaurant patrons held the suspect until police arrived, according to WLS-TV in Chicago. Opponents of laws allowing opposite-sex public-facility use argue...

    The so-called bathroom wars have nothing to do with bathrooms but are all about war. The push to allow a person to use the bathroom of his or her choice is merely the latest phase of the sexual revolution. It is part of a relentless war to bring about an irrational equality that now seeks to break down the final public barriers that make the sexes different.Lets face it. Once it is held that anyone can use the bathroom that he or she feels comfortable with, the words men and women on the door are meaningless since anyone can...

    (CNN)NASA's rockets are astounding machines, capable of blasting into space at thousands of miles per hour and withstanding temperatures twice the melting point of steel. But they can't take off underwater. Rising sea levels caused by melting ice caps threaten to disrupt a handful of NASA launch sites along U.S. coastlines, the space agency warns. In the coming years, launch facilities at Florida's Kennedy Space Center and other places may need to be retrofitted or even moved inland, NASA says. "Every NASA center has its own set of vulnerabilities, and some are more at risk than others," NASA climatologist...

    An Air Force general who recently spoke about how God has guided his career should be court-martialed, a civil liberties group is saying. In a speech at a National Day of Prayer Task Force event on May 7, Maj. Gen. Craig Olson credits God for his accomplishments in the military, and refers to himself as a redeemed believer in Christ. The Air Force Times reports that the Military Religious Freedom Foundation has taken issue with Olsons remarks, is calling for the two-star general to be court-martialed and "aggressively and very visibly brought to justice for his unforgivable crimes and transgressions."...

China may be the worlds top emitter of carbon dioxide and struggling with major pollution problems of their own, but the country is doing it right when it comes to fighting global warming says Figueres. They actually want to breathe air that they dont have to look at, she said. Theyre not doing this because they want to save the planet. Theyre doing it because its in their national interest.

The Environmental Protection Agency is due to release a White House-vetted proposal by Friday that would impose the first-ever limits on greenhouse gases produced by future power plants. It would especially squeeze plants that burn coal, the nations cheapest, most abundant and dirtiest fuel source. The rule coming this week wouldnt apply to existing power plants EPA will tackle those in a second rule due to be proposed next June and finished a year later. But EPAs...

    The "inconvenient truth" overhanging the UN's Copenhagen conference is not that the climate is warming or cooling, but that humans are overpopulating the world. A planetary law, such as China's one-child policy, is the only way to reverse the disastrous global birthrate currently, which is one million births every four days. The world's other species, vegetation, resources, oceans, arable land, water supplies and atmosphere are being destroyed and pushed out of existence as a result of humanity's soaring reproduction rate. Ironically, China, despite its dirty coal plants, is the world's leader in terms of fashioning policy to combat environmental degradation,...

If only John Kerry had been a stronger candidate. If only the message had been framed differently. If only the party's strategists were as tough as the guys on the other side.

    Rep. Barbara Lee's Republican challenger this year is an online CEO, an energetic campaigner -- and also the daughter of the Nicaraguan Contras' late military commander, a heritage that has some East Bay liberals and human rights activists howling. Claudia Bermudez, 50, of Oakland, said she'll confront Lee on issues from homeland security to education. "I'm a businesswoman, I live here in the district -- I don't come as a Contra leader to come and overtake Berkeley." But she touts her father's legacy on her campaign Web site, saying she's "proud to carry on a tradition of political activism that...

    CBS News has come under fire from members of Congress who say they were 'deeply offended' by a lop-sided "Eye on America" series on homeschooling that aired earlier this month. "As members of Congress who either homeschool our own children or support the right of parents to homeschool, we were deeply offended by the recent 'Eye on America' dealing with homeschooling," reads an Oct. 22 letter sent to CBS News president Andrew Heyward. "You chose to take a handful of tragic incidents and, from them, cast aspersions on the entire homeschool movement. Your report was unfair and indicative of both...

    MORGANTON, N.C. - It is one of those summer evenings when the roadside greens are made brilliant, the day lily and Queen Anne's lace refreshed by an afternoon shower that swept down from the highlands, leaving a moist cool behind. Everywhere is mountain view. Out on a two-lane blacktop west of town, where the modest homes between the fields are graced with American flags and plastic geese, the names on the mailboxes announce residents whose roots here run deep:Milligan. Comer. Moore. Black. But off to the right, on W Pine Hills Drive, comes another, unexpected: S HANG.It sits outside a...

    Charity gears up for 1st campaign since its scandal A coalition of labor unions vowed Wednesday to help the Capital Area United Way with "unprecedented support'' in an upcoming fund-raising campaign. The charity soon will launch its first drive since a $2 million embezzlement discovery late last year. Official campaign goals have not yet been set, but board leaders appear focused on at least equaling the $6.9 million pledged in 2002. That could prove difficult in a sluggish economy, coupled with fallout from the embezzlement by the former finance chief - likely the largest ever from one of the United...

    Gay bishops, dwindling congregations: the Anglican crisis continues, and some are calling for disestablishment. But, says Peter Hitchens, the link between Church and State is vital for our wellbeing If the Archbishop of Canterbury does not crown our next monarch, then who will? The president of Europe? A multi-faith collective? Nobody at all? In which case, what sort of country will we then be and where will ultimate authority and legitimacy come from? Perhaps the prior question is why there should now be serious doubt about the Archbishops role at the heart of our constitution. It says something about the...

    THURSDAY, MARCH 21, 2002 1963 Communist Goals The communist goals were entered into the Congressional record by Albert Herlong, Jr. (a Floridian who served in Congress from 1949-69). 1) US acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war 2) US willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war 3) Develop the illusion that total disarmament by the US would be a demonstration of "moral strength" 4) Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war. 5) Extension of long term loans to Russia...
