    If you want to do something about global warming, look under your feet. Managed well, soil’s ability to trap carbon dioxide is potentially much greater than previously estimated, according to Stanford researchers who claim the resource could “significantly” offset increasing global emissions. They call for a reversal of federal cutbacks to related research programs to learn more about this valuable resource. “Dirt is not exciting to most people,” said Earth system science professor Rob Jackson, lead author of the Annual Review of Ecology, Evolution and Systematics article. “But it is a no-risk climate solution with big co-benefits. Fostering soil health...

    The FBI launched a criminal probe against former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn two years after the retired Army general roiled the bureau’s leadership by intervening on behalf of a decorated counterterrorism agent who accused now-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe and other top officials of sexual discrimination, according to documents and interviews. Flynn’s intervention on behalf of Supervisory Special Agent Robyn Gritz was highly unusual, and included a letter in 2014 on his official Pentagon stationary, a public interview in 2015 supporting Gritz’s case and an offer to testify on her behalf. His offer put him as a hostile...

    "Watch out that no poisonous root of bitterness grows up to trouble you, corrupting many." That's a compelling verse – call it a proverb – from the New Testament. It's a great admonition for all of us. It's one the left will pay for not knowing. During the early days of the Clinton impeachment, then-"journalist" George Stephanopoulos gave an insider threat to the world, clearly from the Clintons. He said that if Republicans continued their attempts against them, the earth would be scorched. If they went down, everyone else would, too. Here is the exchange, from 1998. Sam Donaldson: "Are...

    Moving to dismantle former President Barack Obama’s legacy on the environment and other issues, House Republicans approved a measure Wednesday that scuttles a regulation aimed at preventing coal mining debris from being dumped into nearby streams. Lawmakers also voted to rescind a separate rule requiring companies to disclose payments made to foreign governments relating to mining and drilling. Republicans said the votes were first in a series of actions to reverse years of what they see as excessive government regulation during Obama’s presidency. Rules on fracking, guns and federal contracting also are in the cross-hairs as the GOP moves to...

Frankly, I had some revulsion at the idea of having dirty ashes smeared on my forehead. I didn't like it at all and would secretly rub them off when no one was looking. Today, though I'll admit I still don't like it too much, I behave myself and don't...

    Ho hum. NASCAR brought its Camping World Truck Series to Eldora Speedway today, and it's like watching 300 lb women mud wrestle. In the search for "parity", NASCAR has absolutely ruined this sport with their silly rules. Let it be known, THE ONLY EQUALIZER IN RACING IS POVERTY! I have been involved with a few cars at the WORLD 100, know the track, stepped it off, etc. and this is a pitiful display. I feel sorry for those drivers having to force those machines around that wonderful track. Honestly, there are Street Stocks in the immediate vicinity of Bellfontaine and...

    Matt Drudge of the influential Drudge Report news aggregation site expressed discontent over a federal spending bill that passed with votes from both Republicans and Democrats in the House. The $1.1 trillion spending bill that runs through September 2015 is now up for a vote in the Democratically-led Senate. Many conservatives, including Drudge, are upset that the bill funds both Obamacare and President Obama's immigration executive orders. "Obama got EVERYTHING," Drudge tweeted Friday. "NSA dirt on Boehner must be incredible. Chicago wins."

    Larry Flynt offers $1M for dirt on lawmakers, government officialsBy Vicki Needham - 03/04/12 01:28 PM ET Larry Flynt is on the trail for any dirt on congressional lawmakers and government officials. The Hustler magazine publisher placed a full-page ad in Sunday's Washington Post, offering upward of $1 million for any information about "infidelity, sexual impropriety or corruption concerning a U.S. senator, congressperson or prominent government official." The ad says sources with documented evidence would be paid if Flynt publishes the "verified story." He is asking for submissions by phone or email. In September, Flynt went after former Republican presidential...

Ken Shepherd at NewsBusters says enlisting newspaper readers to pore through the email trove "indirectly amounts to free oppo research for the 2012 Obama campaign." On Friday, the State of Alaska will release more than 24,000 of Sarah Palin’s e-mails covering much of her tenure as governor of Alaska.

Chris Christie’s spokesman Mike DuHaime" EXCLUSIVE President Obama's re-election campaign is trying to dig up dirt in the Garden State. Despite New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's repeated pronouncements that he will not seek the GOP presidential nomination, Obama operatives are compiling a dossier of what they call "opposition research" -- material that could be used to damage Christie if he changes his mind, The Post has learned. The Obama campaign is trying to keep its efforts from public view, concerned they...

    I'm old enough to have a vague memory of clothes so white that they were called bright. This happened despite the absence of additives — the ridiculous varieties of sprays and bottles and packets that festoon our cabinets today and that we throw into the wash to try to boost the cleaning power of our pathetic machines and increasingly useless laundry soap. Then, the other night, I experienced an amazing blast from the past. I added a quarter cup of trisodium phosphate (TSP) and otherwise "treated" nothing. The results were nothing short of mind-boggling. Everything was clean — clean in...

    A nonprofit evangelical group founded and run by Republican Senate nominee Christine O'Donnell of Delaware is at risk of losing its tax-exempt status for failing to file required federal tax forms. IRS documents reviewed by The Associated Press show the group — Savior's Alliance for Lifting the Truth — is on a list of organizations threatened with revocation of its nonprofit status next month because it has not filed returns for three consecutive years.
