    President of Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton is one of the loudest voices calling for the end of the Mueller probe. He says the probe is out of control, unsupervised and unconstitutional.  In a recent interview with The Daily Signal, Fitton said the Mueller probe is “a political effort to jail the president and his family because people don’t like him.” Fitton is absolutely correct. The Democrats will not stop until Trump, his family members and people in his administration are put in jail. Fitton also said, “Sessions should un-recuse himself and get rid of Mueller.” Fired FBI Director, Comey admitted...

    The US secretary of state, John Kerry, launched a new global effort on Wednesday to save oceans under siege from over-fishing, plastic pollution and climate change. Kerry said he hoped to build momentum for the protection effort at a two-day summit at the State Department next week. The 16-17 June gathering will for the first time bring together world leaders, business executives, scientists, and environmental activists in an attempt to deal with major threats to oceans. Increasingly, the ocean is threatened, Kerry told a small group of reporters at the State Department. The worlds oceans, as vast as

    The bucardo became extinct in 2000, but cells from the last animal were frozen in liquid nitrogen. In 2003, a cloned calf was brought to term but died a few minutes after birth. Now, the scientists will test the viability of the female bucardo's 14-year-old preserved cells. The bucardo, or Pyrenean ibex, calf born through cloning was an historic event: the first "de-extinction", in which a lost species or sub-species was resurrected.

    WASHINGTON National anger rising, President Barack Obama is defending his efforts against the country's worst environmental disaster and hoping his first Oval Office address Tuesday night will stoke confidence that he can see the job through until the gushing oil is gone and Gulf Coast lives are back to normal. "We're going to fight back with everything that we've got," Obama said in Pensacola, Fla., capping a two-day inspection tour of the stricken region before flying back to Washington for his evening address to the nation. Eight weeks to the day after an offshore oil rig leased by BP...

    Despite a coordinated hype campaign between left-wing pro-illegal immigration activists and the mainstream media, turnout was a bust at May Day marches in two bellwether American cities where crowds were much lower than expected. In Los Angeles, the turnout was a mere tenth of the half-million that marched there four years ago.In a preview article published yestereday, Reuters said of the pending Los Angeles march:Marches across the state on Saturday will show whether Latinos are energized. The standard will be the rallies in March 2006, when some 500,000 people took over downtown Los Angeles to oppose a tough federal bill...

    White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel apologized again Wednesday for using the word "retarded" during a private meeting last summer, telling advocates for the disabled that he will join their campaign to help end the use of the word. The controversy over Emanuel's remark continued to dog the sometimes foul-mouthed senior Obama adviser despite his having privately apologized to Special Olympics Chief Executive Tim Shriver shortly after the comment was made public last week. In a statement after an afternoon meeting at the White House, Shriver and five other disability rights advocates said Emanuel had "sincerely apologized" for the...

    U.S. companies talk a lot about going green, but so far there hasn't been much of an impact on improving the environment, according to a report released today. In its first State of Green Business report, Oakland's acknowledges slow and inconsistent progress. "Companies, in aggregate, aren't changing quickly or significantly enough to move the needle on climate change and other challenges," said Joel Makower, executive editor of the news-and-research Web site and the 64-page report's primary author. The GreenBiz Index considered 20 indicators of environmental progress, ranging from carbon emissions to paper use to what kind of vehicles are...

    RALEIGH, N.C. - In his time off between presidential bids, Democrat John Edwards courted Wall Street financial gurus and Main Street labor leaders. But when it comes to the money backing his second campaign, the wallets of wealthy attorneys who propelled the former trial lawyer's first run for the White House still open more than most. More than half of the Edwards donors who listed their occupations said they are attorneys, and they have given seven times more than any other profession, according to an Associated Press analysis of campaign finance data. By comparison, New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton...

It is ?too early to draw strong conclusions, but there are...

    BAGHDAD Iraqi Army Soldiers conducted a successful operation aimed at reducing violence in the capital this week. The operation came just one day after Coalition Forces and Iraqi counterparts thwarted multi-vehicle suicide attack in the International Zone. During the early-morning raid Oct. 1 in Northeast Sadr City, specially-trained Iraqi Army forces, with Coalition advisers, established a security cordon and quickly gained entry to multiple locations. They were looking for a suspect allegedly involved in the kidnapping, torture and murder of innocent Iraqis. Iraqi forces quickly detained four persons of interest without incident or injury to them or the 14...

    Arnold Schwarzenegger is following the wrong script. After taking over as governor in 2003, he was expected to vanquish business-as-usual politicians in Sacramento--and pull California from the brink of fiscal ruin. Instead, he has decided to put his own political future ahead of the economic survival of his beloved Golden State. How else to interpret his recent move to join ranks with his opponents in Sacramento to put a pork-heavy $37 billion bond infrastructure proposal on the November ballot? --snip--
