    The Endangered Species Act has wreaked havoc for decades on rural communities, but a newly filed lawsuit could force San Francisco urbanites like House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to share their pain. A federal complaint filed this week contends that the Hetch Hetchy Project, which supplies water to San Francisco and the Bay Area, has unfairly enjoyed an exemption from the “severe cutbacks” required in rural California in order to save endangered fish species. Craig Manson, who heads the Center for Environmental Science, Accuracy and Reliability (CESAR) in Fresno, said the lawsuit is aimed at addressing the “double standard” that...

    In what might have appeared to be a minor political event a few weeks back, Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) called congressman Tom Marino (R-PA) “insignificant” and “inconsequential” in a debate on the House floor. Why would the former House Speaker insult a colleague in such a manner? She didn’t count her way to this assessment; Democrats do not hold a majority of the House. Nor did she reason her way to this position, as there was nothing in Rep. Marino’s argument on the immigration issue that raised empirical red flags. Perhaps it was a momentary lapse in judgment in the midst...

    I've been getting a lot of email from Democratic fundraisers lately. They seem very worried about November's elections. First came the highly publicized "Impeachment Red Alert" campaign, in which the Democratic congressional committee warned that Republicans will impeach President Obama if they win control of the House and Senate. Though much ridiculed, the Impeachment Red Alert effort was a big winner, pulling in $2.1 million in small donations in a single weekend. Despite that success, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's mood seemed to blacken in subsequent days as she asked for more and more money. The subject line of Pelosi's...

The area is now booming and Farallon has sold most of its property there. Steyer, who founded and led Farallon until late 2012, has used his fortune to elect Democratic senators and governors....

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi led a rallying cry for the Democratic Party during a United Steelworkers conference today in Las Vegas. The California Democrat’s speech to the union comes as her party desperately tries to garner support in the run-up to the Nov. 4 general election. Republicans are likely to make gains in both chambers of Congress, but the party’s leaders are showing no signs of surrender. Unions are a historic voting bloc for Democrats and Pelosi’s speech was a clear pitch to organized labor, asking them to mobilize on Election Day.

    This week we learned that former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, the elected choice of the wealthy denizens of San Francisco, believes that Hamas is a humanitarian organization. Qatar, Hamas’ principle supporter, told her so. From former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton we learned that the reason Hamas’ weapons are found stored in civilian sites -- schools, mosques, hospitals, and UNWRA buildings -- is because the area is so small there’s nowhere else to hide them. And from the UN’s High Commissioner for Human Rights, the viciously anti-Israeli Navi Pillay, we learned that the Israel may have committed war...

    It has been claimed, correctly for now, that the "two state" solution for Israel's problems with Islamists is dead. The general feeling seems to be that as long as Hamas remains in power in Gaza, the "two state" solution, much praised by the Obama Administration and many others, won't work. It won't, because Hamas (Nancy Pelosi and her friends in Qatar to the contrary notwithstanding) has long been and remains a terror organization devoted to the obliteration of Israel.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KRo89Qx3U-I] Video link Iran, the Muslim Brotherhood, Turkey and Qatar favor Hamas' objectives.

    The Washington establishment believes that the government shutdown of 1995 was a disastrous mistake that accomplished little and cost House Republicans politically. The facts are exactly the opposite. While the shutdown produced some short-term pain, it set the stage for a budget deal in 1996 that led to the largest drop in federal discretionary spending since 1969. The discipline imposed by this budget — overall spending grew at an average of 2.9 percent a year while I was speaker of the House, the slowest rate in decades — allowed us to reach a balanced-budget deal in 1997. ...the balanced budget...

    Republicans and Democrats joined hands, swayed side-to-side and sang “We Shall Overcome” during Tuesday’s Congressional Gold Medal ceremony — and it was as awkward as it sounds. Video of the ceremony, awarding Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King Congressional Gold Medals, quickly went viral on social media, with most people stating how “cringe-worthy” the moment was. “I watched killers being executed by the State of Arkansas. They looked happier and more at ease than this,” National Journal’s Ron Fournier wrote on Twitter. Pictured holding hands were House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Sen....

    The following is mostly satire. First Lady Michelle Obama said this past week that even with an Ivy League education, she struggled to cope with the nutrition needs of her family. Her key point, parents, is that while an Ivy League education qualifies one to tell everyone else how to live, it just can’t fix stupid. The First Lady also said that amnesty is the President’s “top priority” which means that he will focus like a “laser beam” on the issue and thankfully, like everything else he focuses on, nothing will happen. The Obamas have said that they want their...

In a letter released today, Cordileone wrote that he is required “as a bishop, to proclaim the truth—the whole truth—about the human person and God’s will for our flourishing ... especially the truth about marriage as the conjugal union of husband and wife,” Cordileone wrote. “That is what I will be doing on June 19th.” Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone Political figures...
