    Sen. Jim Inhofe said he plans to use a legislative maneuver that would allow rejection of environmental regulations by majority vote to take whacks at President Obama's agenda, signaling a contentious two years between the White House and Congress with the Oklahoma Republican helming the Environment and Public Works Committee. Inhofe said he intends to use the Congressional Review Act to strike down a proposed rule limiting carbon emissions from power plants along with other regulations once they are finalized. Any attempt to do so, however, almost certainly would be vetoed by Obama, who has said he plans to protect...

    According to Sen. Jim Inhofe, there may be enough Democratic votes to override President Barack Obama’s expected veto of legislation to authorize construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. The Oklahoma Republican said that Democrats who survived their party's big defeat in the midterm elections want to keep their distance from the president — so much so that many of them would vote to override a possible veto on the pipeline. "After the beating the Democrats took, keep in mind we have another election coming up in 2016," Inhofe told WMAL Radio on Thursday, The Washington Free Beacon reported. "There are...

    The possibility of the ISIS terrorist group attacking America has Senator Jim Inhofe claiming that ISIS’ WMD capabilities may include developing a bomb big enough to destroy a U.S. city. The Islamic terrorist group is now the richest in the world and apparently the best organized since it’s believed that ISIS sleeper cells are allegedly planning a large scale terror attack within the United States. The full extent of ISIS’ WMD capabilities have been debated by the experts ever since it was revealed that the ISIS in Iraq had uncovered Saddam Hussein’s WMD stockpiles. The ISIS terrorist group even managed...

    Frustrated with President Barack Obama’s reaction to Russian action in Ukraine, a group of Republican senators said Wednesday they will introduce legislation outlining a more muscular response. “What we’ve seen from the administration is a lot of rhetoric,” Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee, the top Republican on the Foreign Relations Committee, said on the Senate floor Wednesday morning. The White House has been dealing “with the situation after something bad has already occurred,” he said. Earlier this week, violence flared up in another area of Ukraine that hugs the Russian border, as the new government in Kiev criticized local police...

    Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) believes there’s still a chance that a recent amendment allowing abortions at military hospitals won’t become law. Last month, the Senate Armed Services Committee passed an amendment by Sen. Roland Burris (D.-Ill.) that alters the current ban on performing abortions in military facilities. The amendment—part of the 2011 National Defense Authorization Act—makes two changes to the current U.S. code: First, it eliminates the phrase “restriction on use of funds” in the section which says the Defense Department can’t use funds to perform abortions except for the life of the mother. Second, it strikes the provision that...

Inhofe, a conservative Republican who opposed comprehensive immigration reform several years earlier, said there's nothing wrong with Arizona's new law, which is seen as granting authorities some of the most leeway in the country in pursuing illegal immigrants. "I think the frustration is that the federal government isn't enforcing the laws, so we're going to do it on the state level," Inhofe said of the factors which led to the law during an appearance on KTOK radio.
