    The U.S. Justice Department is developing plans to temporarily reassign immigration judges from around the country to 12 cities to speed up deportations of illegal immigrants who have been charged with crimes, according to two administration officials. ----------------------------------------------- The targeted cities are New York; Los Angeles; Miami; New Orleans; San Francisco; Baltimore, Bloomington, Minnesota; El Paso, Texas; Harlingen, Texas; Imperial, California; Omaha, Nebraska and Phoenix, Arizona. They were chosen because they are cities which have high populations of illegal immigrants with criminal charges, the officials said. A spokeswoman for the Justice Department's Executive Office of Immigration Review, which administers immigration...

    Donald Trump needs to get out ahead of the media calling this a "Muslin Ban". There is no Muslim ban. There are 50 Muslim nations in the world. Only 7 of them have a temporary hold on travel to the USA. Here are the nations limited by the Trump hold on people from Terrorist nations: Iraq Syria Iran Libya Somalia Sudan Yemen Here are all the Muslim Nations where all Muslims are free to enter the USA with appropriate customs. Any and ALL Muslims who want to apply to visit the USA from the following nations are still welcome to...

    With a relentless barrage of corporate executives taking veiled, and not so veiled, shots at Trump's immigration policies, moments ago Starbuck's outgoing CEO Howard Schultz went one better, and in a letter to employees, the CEO announced plans to hire some 10,000 refugees in the 75 countries in which Starbucks does business, and furthermore added that “our Partner Resources team has been in direct contact” with employees affected by President Trump’s immigration ban."He outlined different plans to not only hire refugees, but also on how the company will support “Dreamers” in the country, “building bridges, not walls” with Mexico...

    “Current temperature 95 degrees,” the weather man said, and hastened to add, “but it feels like a hundred and five.” Immediately I stood up. The time had come to test a longstanding hypothesis. I packed a winter coat, hat, and gloves; a notepad; and a No. 2 Ticonderoga pencil. With these things in hand, and my three-in-one thermometer-compass-magnifier keychain survival tool, I headed for the door.

    The upper-air weather pattern over North America this week has been an extreme one that has yielded record-breaking results. An area of low pressure in the upper atmosphere that pushed into California on Monday dove southward into Mexico, where it became mostly detached from the main jet stream to the north. This allowed it to stall over northern Mexico, resulting in rare March snow for parts of that country and extreme flooding in the southern United States. At the same time, the jet stream built north over southeast Canada, where an expansive area of high pressure both aloft and at...

    A video appearing to show a strange light above Canberra during a storm was probably capturing "ball lightning", an astronomer has said. The video uploaded to YouTube last night, claims to show a circle or donut-shaped light appearing in the Canberra sky during a storm. Australian National University astronomer Brad Tucker said the red and green light which glowed faintly in the background was "characteristic of an aurora" however believed this time it was ball lightning. "An aurora is when energy from the sun hits the earth's atmosphere, the energy rubs the earth's atmosphere with friction and charges the gas,"...

    The California college student who stabbed four people last month in a campus spree that ended when he was killed by campus police was described by his roommate as "an extreme Muslim" and carried a manifesto and a photocopy of an ISIS flag -- more than enough to convince John Price he was a terrorist. Yet, more than a month after the Nov. 4 attack at University of California Merced, local and federal authorities continue to insist that Faisal Mohammad, 18, carried out the vicious attack because he'd been banished from a study group. Price, whose son Byron Price, a...

    I expect to hear it from socialist college professors and Che Guevara t-shirt wearing coffee house loiterers. But to hear it from conservatives with actual jobs is a painful reminder of the ease with which the media have convinced Americans to shut off their minds and allow pundits to do the thinking for them. “I’m worried that Ted Cruz is too extreme.”During the night, someone did a job on the word “extreme.” It ain’t what it used to be. We learned this week that the official position of Obama’s Department of Education is that men should be able to infiltrate...

    Donald Trump says he's not blaming George W. Bush for 9/11, but he claims that if he'd been president, the attacks never would have happened. In an appearance on "Fox News Sunday," the real estate mogul said that since he's "extremely, extremely tough on immigration" the attackers wouldn't have been in position to commandeer U.S. flights. "So there's a good chance that those people would not have been in our country," Trump said. He took another shot at Jeb Bush for claiming that Bush's brother, the 43rd president, kept the nation safe. "I'm not blaming George Bush," Trump said. "But...

In fact, roughly 60% of the human body is water. Yet, water isn't ALWAYS a good thing as Noah could tell you. Virtues can be like this as well. In moderation, they're good for you, but taken to extremes, they become destructive. 1) Tolerance: A little tolerance is a good thing,...

    LANSING, MI -- Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder is urging residents to exercise great caution as dangerous winter weather sweeps across the state. "The heavy snowfall and expected 20-year low subzero temperatures and high winds are creating – or have the potential to create – hazardous conditions across most of the state," Snyder said in a release Sunday afternoon. "We want everyone to be safe. Let's all pull together by taking care of ourselves and each other, which includes checking in on friends and neighbors who may need our help. It’s times like this when Michiganders are at their best." The...

    Career crony turned perennial candidate Terry McAuliffe’s staked his entire bid for the Virginia Governor’s Mansion on demagoguing Ken Cuccinelli’s stances on social issues. A recent Washington Times editorial summed up the central strategy of the Democrat’s all-too predictable campaign: retread Obama’s scorched earth tactics to cast Cuccinelli as anti-woman, all to cover up his glaring lack of substance. Independent fact checkers have repeatedly debunked mudslinging by the McAuliffe camp, including a recent ad accusing Cuccinelli of trying to ban forms of contraception. The ad opens with an image of a package of birth control pills, as a voiceover says,...

    Climate change will trigger harsher and more frequent heat waves in the next 30 years regardless of the amount of Earth-warming carbon dioxide we emit, a study said on August 15. But targets adopted today for curbing greenhouse gas emissions will determine whether the pattern stabilises thereafter, or grows even worse. High temperatures and heat waves in the last decade are widely blamed on climate change that occurred over the last 50 years - amounting to global warming of about 0.5 degrees Celsius (0.9 deg Fahrenheit), said the study in the journal Environmental Research Letters.

    Something’s amiss at the Department of Interior. Eight government scientists were recently fired or reassigned after voicing concerns to their superiors about faulty environmental science used for policy decisions. Which begs the question, “Are some government agencies manipulating science to advance political agendas?” Fictional book authors operate in a convenient world, unconstrained by facts and experiences of the real world. The antithesis of works of fiction are scientific findings solely based on provable facts and experience. For agenda-driven environmental science, facts can sometime prove inconvenient. It’s far easier to advance an agenda with agreeable science, even if that means creating...

    Feverishly hot ocean surface waters potentially reaching more than 104 degrees Fahrenheit (40 degrees Celsius) may have helped cause the greatest mass extinction in Earth's history, researchers say. "We may have found the hottest time the world has ever had," researcher Paul Wignall, a geologist at the University of Leeds in England, told LiveScience. The mass extinction at the end of the Permian Era about 250 million years ago was the greatest die-off in Earth's history. The cataclysm killed as much as 95 percent of the planet's species. One key factor behind this disaster was probably catastrophic volcanic activity in...

Eisenhower. "Teddy Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower – Richard Nixon’s too liberal for these people. It’s amazing," Clinton told the 2,000 people packed into a hotel ballroom here. He said the most right-wing members of the GOP control the party's nominations and "political operations." **SNIP** "The American people have to believe me...

With unemployment the chief concern of voters in this election, how often does the word "unemployment" appear in the DNC document? BuzzFeed's Andrew Kaczynski counted, and found only three mentions abortion got four. What other terms outplay the biggest issue in this election?
