    Breitbart Texas ^ | 8/1/15 | BOB PRICE
    A Texas farmer finally received land back that was taken from him by a court and given to the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) more than thirty years ago. The victory puts land back into his undisputed possession and control that has been in his family since 1904. It also brings hope and a pathway to victory for other farmers who stand to lose up to 90,000 acres of land to the BLM.Tommy Henderson met with BLM officials on the steps of the Clay County Courthouse in Henrietta, Texas, where he was presented a patent from the U.S. government...

    National Review ^ | 8/1/15 | Andrew C. McCarthy
    The Audacity of Facts: that is what Mark Levin believes can save America. Facts can animate the rising generation that has the most to lose by the impending collapse of our constitutional republic. Levin concedes that the odds are against him. But Plunder and Deceit, his arresting new book, takes its shot. It is a clarion call to young people: “an appeal to reason and audacity”; an appeal that they “find the personal strength and will to break through the cycle of statist propaganda and manipulation, unrelenting emotional overtures, and the pressure of groupthink” that has atrophied their generation’s capacity...

    Washington (AFP) - Urging Americans to curb trophy killings and not be "cowardly lions," US lawmakers introduced legislation Friday that would prevent the kinds of controversial hunting that brought down Zimbabwe's beloved beast Cecil. Senate Democrat Robert Menendez's bill would expand the import-export restrictions of the 1973 Endangered Species Act to include animals that are not just listed as endangered or threatened, but those that are "proposed to be listed" as such. The US Fish and Wildlife Service, which maintains the US endangered species list, last October proposed to list the African lion as threatened due to habitat loss and...

    A Texas congressman has introduced legislation that would halt the resettlement of United Nations-certified refugees in the U.S. pending a full study on the program’s impact on the nation’s economy and national security. Rep. Brian Babin, R-Texas, introduced the Resettlement Accountability National Security Act, or HR 3314, which places an “immediate suspension on allowing immigrants into the United States under the refugee resettlement program, until the Government Accountability Office (GAO) completes a thorough examination of its costs on federal, state and local governments.” According to US government data, nearly 500,000 new immigrants have come to the U.S. under the resettlement...

    Townhall.com ^ | August 1, 2015 | Matt Bowman
    This summer, many people, including friends of mine, adopted the rainbow symbol and the message of human equality after the U.S. Supreme Court took it upon itself to redefine marriage. Actual leaders of “gay rights” organizations universally explain, in open partnership with Planned Parenthood, that their concept of equality likewise promotes “reproductive health,” which itself includes abortion. Thus, leading advocates to redefine marriage cite human “equality,” but believe it can coexist with their own diktat that only certain human beings are “equal,” while others can be torn apart. To rainbow equality leaders, defining some humans as abortable is an obvious...

    MEXICO CITY, July 31, 2015 (ChurchMilitant.com) - Tens of thousands of people marched in Mexico last Saturday to protest the country's recent Supreme Court decision legalizing same-sex "marriage." The decision rendered void many pre-existing state constitutions defining marriage as between a man and woman. So Mexicans took to the streets under the "Mexico is One for the Children" slogan. Sofia Miranda, one of its organizers, sent a letter to Mexico's hostile media clarifying, "We are not against any person; we are against this Supreme Court imposition." She warns, echoing Pope Francis, that recognizing same-sex unions as somehow being a form...

If we can get six Democrats and all the Republicans we can actually put this on the president’s desk.” Paul, along with Sens.

    Over the last four decades, if you’ve seen a World War II aircraft actually in flight, chances are pretty good that the Collings Foundation in Stow, Massachusetts had something to do with it. Wednesday, the town Planning board voted 3-to-2 that the Foundation’s living history events, tours, exhibitions and veteran roundtable discussions are not educational, and thereby denied it a permit to expand. The Building Department also issued a cease and desist order against the Foundation on March 26, 2015 prohibiting take-offs and landings from the airstrip it has maintained and flown from for 37 years.

Rep. Lamborn’s legislation is a response to four videos that show Planned Parenthood executives negotiating the sale of aborted babies and discussing how their abortionists alter procedures to obtain salable organs. The congressman believes his bill is especially important considering the recent revelations regarding Planned Parenthood’s connection with Colorado State University, a state funded school in Northern Colorado.

In the Digitas video above, you can see clips from both Friday's and Thursdays briefings where Earnest plainly admits the White House is using the organization's talking points. Apparently the alleged criminal sale of baby body parts does not rise to the level of "merits our attention" at Obama's White House. That wasn't the only thing that...

    A federal judge on Friday blocked the release of additional recordings captured by the group behind a series of undercover Planned Parenthood videos. The move came hours after after the National Abortion Federation filed a request for an injunction and restraining order against the Center for Medical Progress in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California.

    MADISON, Wis. – A federal judge on Friday tossed out former Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson’s civil rights lawsuit and declared Wisconsin’s constitutional amendment that forced Abrahamson out of her long-standing seat of power does indeed pass “constitutional muster.” U.S. District Court Judge James Peterson said he wasn’t persuaded by Abrahamson’s case. His ruling puts to rest the liberal justice’s claims that the amendment approved by Wisconsin voters in April unfairly led to her ouster as chief justice. “This court has been asked whether the immediate implementation of an amendment to the Wisconsin Constitution concerning the structure of its court system...

    Hillary Clinton paid roughly $57 million in federal and state taxes over the last eight years based on a statement just released by the Democratic presidential candidate’s campaign. The statement does not say how much Clinton earned each year. She made roughly $15 million in charitable donations. “We’ve come a long way from my days going door-to-door for the Children’s Defense Fund and earning $16,450 as a young law professor in Arkansas — and we owe it to the opportunities America provides,” Clinton said in the statement.

    MADISON, Wis. -- The sale of fetal body parts would be banned in Wisconsin and Planned Parenthood could lose millions of dollars in federal funding under bills proposed by two Republican state representatives. Reps. Andre Jacque and Joel Kleefisch circulated their proposal banning the sale and use of fetal body parts for co-sponsorship Thursday, with a deadline of Aug. 6. They said the bill was in response to videos showing a Planned Parenthood medical director in southern California meeting with people posing as potential buyers of intact fetal specimens. Federal law prohibits the commercial sale of fetal tissue but allows...

    Utah Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz had some harsh words for EPA Chief Administrator Gina McCarthy during a hearing Wednesday regarding the agency’s handling of an employee who repeatedly sexually harassed interns. For the past couple of years, Republican lawmakers have been investigating reports of misconduct at the EPA from employees watching porn everyday while on the job to an agency employee who sexually harassed interns and was not reported to the authorities and continued to work at the agency for years. “This is a predator who was fed a steady diet of interns,” Chaffetz told McCarthy during the hearing. “The...

    Maybe the undercover investigation conducted by the Center for Medical Progress needed to happen so people could see and hear the gruesomeness of Planned ParenthoodÂ’s harvesting and sale of fetal body parts. Maybe it was too easy to ignore without video-taped evidence in plain, gory language. Maybe it is not enough to be outraged at abortion on its face because, I donÂ’t know, killing is somehow worse if body parts are sold.But anyone who has followed the Human Genome Project, cloning, genetic, evolution, and stem cell research knows that the use of fetal and embryonic body parts and tissues...
  • Climate models are even more accurate than you thought

    Global climate models aren’t given nearly enough credit for their accurate global temperature change projections. As the 2014 IPCC report showed, observed global surface temperature changes have been within the range of climate model simulations. Now a new study shows that the models were even more accurate than previously thought. In previous evaluations like the one done by the IPCC, climate model simulations of global surface air temperature were compared to global surface temperature observational records like HadCRUT4. However, over the oceans, HadCRUT4 uses sea surface temperatures rather than air temperatures. There’s a common myth that models are unreliable, often...

    The Senate will vote early Monday evening on a new bill has been introduced that will totally de-fund the Planned Parenthood abortion business. The legislation follows four shocking videos that have caught Planned Parenthood doctors discussing and arranging the sale of body parts of aborted babies. But if that legislation is defeated by Senate Democrats, as is expected, a group of 18 House Republicans say they will hold up any bill to fund the federal government that does not contain language in it to de-fund Planned Parenthood. “We must act to fully defund Planned Parenthood,” they wrote in a letter...
