    Recent reports indicate federal bureaucrats are finalizing the details of a behemoth new Environmental Protection Agency mandate that would supersede property owners’ rights on any piece of land that contains any body of water – including a ditch that fills with rain water. Heritage Foundation Agricultural Policy Research Fellow Daren Bakst explained the ramifications of the rule, which will update the Clean Water Act of 1972, in an interview with The Blaze. “Property owners will not be able to engage in activities they should be able to engage in,” he said. “This will be devastating to private property rights.”

    When Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was traded for five high risk Taliban commanders last summer, his platoon mates quickly hit the airwaves to expose him as a deserter. They said it was known he was a deserter for years. The Obama administration, however, gave the appearance to the American people that officials were unaware of the circumstances surrounding his capture. In fact, last year State Department Deputy Spokeswoman Marie Harf said allegations Bergdahl deserted were simply "rumors." Not only did President Obama hold a Rose Garden ceremony to honor Bergdahl, but administration officials Jay Carney and Susan Rice said he...

    Five senior Taliban leaders released last year from the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in exchange for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl could move freely around the world next week as their one-year travel ban expires. He recently was charged with desertion. U.S. officials have discussed with the Qataris the possibility of extending the travel ban after it expires on June 1. But so far, the White House has not publicly announced any new agreement with Qatar, meaning the five could leave the tiny nation on the Arabian Peninsula at the end of the month. The State Department insists that U.S....

    In a stunning setback to President Obama’s effort to defer deportation and grant certain citizenship rights to millions of illegal immigrants, a federal appeals court has just upheld an injunction blocking Obama’s executive order on amnesty. The Washington Times reports that the highly anticipated ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit marks the second major legal setback for an administration that was skirting the Congress and charging ahead on its highly controversial program to defer deportation for as many as 5 million illegals. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit ruled in favor of...

    The New York Times reports that the Justice Department has concluded that there was criminal wrongdoing by General Motors as the company covered-up a deadly ignition switch defect for years. That defect has now been blamed for causing the deaths of at least 104 motorists. While many observers may have been able to come to the conclusion that GM was guilty long before the Justice Department’s recent epiphany, the bigger question now is, what’s next? GM still faces litigation risks as ongoing lawsuits seek justice for the victims’ families that suffered as a result of GM’s criminal actions. Full...

President Obama was then running for office for the first time and Malia was 10. Mr...

    The Obama administration is expected to announce final details of “Waters of the United States” rule this week that could impact any property owner with water or a ditch that occasionally fills with water on their land. Moreover, the regulation could even conflict with two Supreme Court rulings. The Environmental Protection Agency and the Army Corps of Engineers have sought to provide more clarity to what bodies of water are protected under the 1972 Clean Water Act, which has previously affected rivers, lakes and the streams that flow directly to them.

And in many cases, there is significant doubt about whether his signature initiatives will stand legal scrutiny. The latest blow to Obama's second-term plans came Tuesday when a federal appeals court in New Orleans denied the administration's request to move forward with implementing his expanded executive action on immigration to defer deportation for millions of undocumented immigrants. Texas and 25 other states have sued to have it shelved. The drama is sure to ensue for months, writes the Post's...

    Dear Leader Barack Hussein Obama referred to ISIS as "jayvee" ("junior varsity") in January 2014. Then in September 2014, he said about ISIS in Syria: "We don't have a strategy yet." ISIS just took Rahmadi, and continued east, attacking the town of Khaldiya and breaking the Iraqi government's line of defense in Husayba, about 20 miles west of Baghdad. ISIS also captured the Syrian city of Palmyra. Obama’s ISIS "strategy" is being scrutinized after recent setbacks. Even the ultra-liberal Los Angeles Times ran an Op-Ed entitled "Obama has a strategy for fighting ISIS -- one that isn't working". Now Obama...

    Last week the President called for police to soften up uniforms to improve public relations. In response the Department of Justice is getting ready to field test new uniforms in friendly colors. Various shades of Purple are being tested as it seems to be universally thought of as a color of friendship.

    March 31, 2015 We suspect many local law enforcement agencies in America are going to seriously regret seeking and accepting Federal dollars over the last few years. Accepting those funds, from whatever source and for whatever purpose, may now subject local agencies to Federal "standards" that will severely restrict local autonomy in policy development and implementation. To understand what may lie ahead of law enforcement one only needs to see what has happened in public education with the usurpation of local autonomy by the U. S. Department of Education. Alex Newman, writing at NewAmerican.com reports: The Obama administration and its...

    But it's not just Ramadi that Obama has neglected. Fact is, the so-called air war against ISIS is a fraud “The Cemetery of the Americans.” That’s what graffiti said in the western Iraq city of Ramadi when I first embedded there in 2006. Indeed, my two journalist predecessors in Camp Corregidor were both shot be snipers. Within weeks the first SEAL to die in Iraq would be killed, another mortally wounded. My own Public Affairs officer was killed, and later the first SEAL to win the Medal of Honor in Iraq would die there. It was the hardest-fought battle of...

    God Bless American soldiers gone to their heavenly rewards forever! The picture Herman Cain writer Dan Calabrese calls “the worst Memorial Day photo ever” should be going viral now if Obama Google pals don’t bury it. The photo shows for once and for all how President Barack Obama really feels about Memorial Day, the one day a year set aside to pay respect to the sacrifice of the highly venerated war dead. Just like the man the photo depicts, the picture not only swaggers across the stage, it leaps, bounds and somersaults into view, walking on stilts across our troubled...

    Grammy-winning country music legend Charlie Daniels is fed up with President Obama's refusal to blame Muslims for terrorism and America's political correctness when it comes to Islamic murderers, and says, "Lock and load America, trouble is on the way." In a lengthy statement on his website, triggered by the terrorist attack in Garland, Texas, on May 3, Daniels blasted both Muslims and Obama. Daniels, whose hits, "The Devil Came Down To Georgia" and "The South's Gonna Do It Again" have earned him a place forever in country music history, wrote about the Garland shooting, "The ramifications of this incident should,...

    Global Warming? The Pope is Wrong April 27, 2015 Alan Caruba My thoughts regarding the Pope are rooted in my knowledge of the long record of lies, false predictions, and claims by various environmentalists over the years. When the Vatican announced it would hold a conference on April 28 called “Protect the Earth, Dignify Humanity: The Moral Dimensions of Climate Change and Sustainable Development”, I wondered why the Vatican is not holding a conference to organize the protection of Christians—particularly in the Middle East—against the wholesale genocide that is occurring. The Pope is not alone in this. There appears to...

    As I've written previously , we’ve experienced the calmest Hurricane seasonin 30 years, the quietest tornado season in 60 years; the creation of 19,000 Manhattan islands worth of sea ice, and (again) the Arctic Ice Cap has grown by 533,000 square miles . In 2007, theBBC warned the cap could vanish by 2013. Oh, and we’re at the most industrialized point in human history–and air quality couldn’t be better, according to the EPA. Now, the polar ice caps aren’t melting. In fact, they haven’t retreated at all. James Taylor of Forbes reported that the 1979 baseline on polar ice...

    Although the chaos in Baltimore has seemingly come to an end, the damage is done. Buildings are in shambles, and owners have to rebuild their businesses with nothing left of their livelihood except some garbage and burnt pieces of plastic. There are so many heartbreaking stories of individuals affected by the riots, but this one takes the cake. This mom is trying to figure out what steps to take after the “peaceful protestors” destroyed her severely disabled son’s medical equipment, leaving him with nothing. According to the Washington Post, Laporsha Lawson grabbed her disabled son Khai’Lee Sampson and fled to...
