  • Trump’s WOTUS Repeal Has Yet to Help Modesto Farmer Who Faces $2.8 Million Fine for Plowing

    John Duarte, a fourth-generation California farmer, was disappointed this week when President Trump's repeal of the Waters of the United States rule didn't translate into immediate legal relief from an Obama administration's environmental case against him. Duarte says he has spent $2 million and five years fighting charges that he violated provisions of the Clean Water Act by plowing too deeply on watery areas of a 450-acre parcel of land he purchased to grow winter wheat for at least one year. ========== "I'm still trying to figure out how a plowing method that doesn't not move soil," Duarte said, referring...
  • Duarte hopes Trump’s order will ease harrowing experience against feds in court

    When President Trump signed an executive order in February to review President Obama’s “Waters of the United States” rule, Hughson farmer John Duarte finally felt like the government’s case against him could be, well, plowed under. I wrote about Duarte in January 2016 as his legal fight with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers intensified and headed into federal court. But the feds won that round. A judge in June 2016 sided with the Army Corps, and now the case will proceed to the penalty phase in August. The government wants Duarte to pay $2.8 million in fines and up...

    After President Trump won election in November of 2016, I explained how a Trump administration could eliminate gun free zones in the Army Corps of Engineers. One of the options to do this was with a court ordered settlement agreed to by both sides. Another method available to President Trump is a negotiated Court settlement. The ban on possession of weapons on land administered by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is being challenged in the Courts. Court cases in both the Ninth Circuit and in the Eleventh Circuit are active. A Trump administration could order the Corps of...

    President Donald Trump has committed to eliminating Gun Free Zones.  He cannot eliminate the Gun Free School Zones Act by himself.  It will take Congressional or Court action.  He can eliminate Gun Free Zones on military bases and in recruitment offices. He can eliminate Gun Free Zones on lands managed by the Army Corps of Engineers.  Donald Trump will be the Commander in Chief.  The Army Corps of Engineers is a federal agency in the Department of Defense.  It is commanded by a Lieutenant General (three star), Todd T. Semonite.   General Semonite is under the command of Donald Trump....
  • After 16 years, vindication for Marine pilots

    In a victory rare to U.S. military aviation, two widows of Marine Corps pilots have won a 16-year fight to lift blame from their husbands’ shoulders for a 2000 Osprey crash that killed 19 people, including 15 Marines from San Diego County. Test pilots Lt. Col. John Brow and Maj. Brooks Gruber were at the controls of the MV-22 aircraft when it crashed in the Arizona desert during an exercise. The revolutionary aircraft -- which travels like an airplane but lands vertically like a helicopter -- was still in the operational evaluation stage. The Marine Corps had a lot of...
  • Marine Corps scolded for dragging its feet integrating women into the infantry

    Washington Times ^ | 1/8/16 | Rowan Scarborough
    Navy Secretary Ray Mabus has sent scolding memorandum to the Marine Corps, warning commanders that problems with integrating women into the infantry should not be used as an excuse to “halt the policy.” Mr. Mabus is also ordering the Gen. Robert Neller, the Marine Corps commandant, to remove the word “man” from titles, apparently meaning the job title of “infantryman” is a casualty. Mr. Mabus, a former Democratic governor of Mississippi, has followed the Obama’s administration’s priorities in other ares. He has named war ships after liberal politicians, push climate change initiatives and followed the first lady’s lead on nutrition...

    Idaho Senator Mike Crapo has introduced legislation to remove federal infringments on second amendment rights from lands controlled by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps). From the press release: The bill seeks to make firearm regulations consistent across federal lands by allowing law-abiding citizens to carry firearms on U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) property. Under current law, a person may carry a concealed weapon in a National Park or Refuge as long as individuals comply with the firearm laws of the park’s home state. However, the same rights are not extended to Americans who hunt, camp or...

    Army Corps of Engineers Administered Land In the Ninth Circuit federal court of appeals, District Court Judge B. Lynn Winmill ruled that the second amendment does not stop at the boundary of land administered by  the Army Corps of Engineers.   There are millions of acres of wild land and waters involved, as the Corps of Engineers administers enormous projects across America on the waterways. In the 11th Circuit, Judge Harold Murphy in Georgia has ruled that the second amendment does not apply on land administered by the Corps, because the land is all considered "sensitive", like a courtroom, or...

    A Florida appeals court judge has ruled that an insurer is not liable for damages that occurred to an apartment after a neighbor's dead body 'exploded.' Judy Rodrigo battled State Farm for almost six years, arguing that the insurer of her Jupiter condo should pay for the clean-up of her apartment. She argued that the Keystone Condominium Association left the neighbor's corpse so long that the body's fluid leaked into her apartment.

    U.S. Africa Command will get a new Marine Corps rapid response force as part of a plan to beef up its crisis response capabilities. More Leathernecks will be at the ready after the military was unable to get timely aid to Benghazi, Libya last year, during a terror attack that killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and members of his security detail. Gen. Carter Ham, Africom’s commander, told Congress this week about the planned new force, Stars and Stripes reported Friday.

    Tongues Are Wagging After Snub of Pentagon's Top Dog Leads to Marine Corps Promotion Some Say Chesty's Conduct With Defense Secretary's Golden Retriever Was Unbecoming; Pats From the Commandant WASHINGTON—The Marines won't say it out loud, but everyone knows that Cpl. Chesty got promoted to sergeant this summer not for being a good Marine, but for his in-your-muzzle confrontation with the top dog in the Pentagon. Just two weeks before his promotion, the Marine Corps mascot, an English bulldog formally known as Chesty XIII, had a run-in with Bravo, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta's golden retriever. Chesty, usually known for happily...

    Feb 15,2012 - Boozman Seeks Second Amendment Protection on Corps Land Files Amendment to Senate Transportation Bill WASHINGTON D.C. - U.S. Senator John Boozman filed an amendment Monday that would prohibit the Secretary of the Army from enforcing any regulation that keeps an individual from possessing firearms on Army Corps of Engineer Water Resource Development projects or facilities. "This amendment would make gun regulations consistent across all federal recreational lands,” Boozman said. “Law abiding gun owners deserve to defend themselves on federal lands while enjoying the outdoors.” “This move will bring clarity and uniformity to firearms policy on federal recreational...

    An official says the U.S. Marine Corps has identified at least two of the four marines in an internet video that purports to depict them urinating on Taliban corpses in Afghanistan. A marine official said Thursday that the four were members of the 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marines, which returned to its home base in North Carolina last fall after a tour in Afghanistan. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because a criminal investigation is underway. The official said that at least some of the four marines are no longer in that battalion. He provided no other details. (Snip) Panetta
  • Hot Air exclusive: Perry raises $17.1 million in Q3

    A source on the Rick Perry campaign tells Hot Air that the Texas governor conducted some Texas-size fundraising in the third quarter. Coming in just a little over halfway through, Perry raised $17.1 million. That number would put Perry somewhere between $4-6 million ahead of Mitt Romney’s rumored total for Q3, according to this report last week from the Boston Globe. It’s also likely to far outpace Herman Cain’s fundraising or that of the other Republicans currently in the race. The pace is even more impressive. Perry had 49 days in which to raise funds, rather than the full 92...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Congressman Jason Altmire (PA-04) was the lead Democrat on a measure that passed the U.S. House of Representatives today to restrict funding for the Army Corps of Engineers (the Corps) to enforce a gun ban on land they own and operate. The amendment to H.R. 2354, the Energy and Water Development Appropriations Bill, was introduced with Congressmen Paul Gosar (AZ-01) and Bob Gibbs (OH-18). Last Congress, the House passed an amendment by Congressman Altmire that allows individuals to legally possess firearms in any unit of the National Park Service or National Wildlife Refuge System, but not...

My father was in the Corp in the early 70's (went to Saigon afterwards). I salute to those serve proudly. The following video is a tribute to all those WHO ARE MARINES(remeber: once a Marine, always a Marine)OOH-RAH!

    "It speaks of regular and reserve Officers, scholarships, loans, obligated service, individual contracts, training centers, the traditional income redistribution scheme of grants and grant proposals, etc. The debt repayment provisions are especially attractive to certain sectors of our population. It appears to be an indentured servitude gig.

Of course, if pinned down, I'm sure this will be characterized as a draft, a proposal, need to modify, hasn't been...
