An environmental group whose request for records related to the Keystone Pipeline was reportedly hampered while Hillary Clinton served as secretary of state is considering taking the case to court for the second time. Ben Schreiber, climate and energy program director at Friends of the Earth, said his group has weighed the option of relitigation in the weeks since learning that Clinton´s chief of staff, Cheryl Mills, had interfered in the agency´s handling of Freedom of Information Act requests for Keystone documents. While Schreiber said Friends of the Earth received a number of emails involving Clinton´s top aides when the original case

Republican presidential candidate Lindsey Graham said it’s important for members of his party to “speak up” in opposition to Donald Trump’s controversial remarks on immigrants, adding that Trump’s comments are not part of “the party I want to have.”“I’m not embarrassed I just think that everybody’s got to speak up,” the senator from South Carolina said on Boston Herald Radio. “At the end of the day this is not the party I want to have. You have people in the party who say things sometimes that are against what I think the party stands for, so it’s incumbent upon the

Behind every great man, there’s an incredibly astonished woman. And if you’re a Republican politician, the odds are pretty good she’s not on board with everything in your agenda. Along those lines, social conservatives have a new reason to worry about Scott Walker: Tonette Walker.In an interview with the Washington Post, Wisconsin’s first lady publicly distanced herself from her husband over the issue of gay marriage. What is more, it’s clear that Scott Walker’s views are out of step with his entire family on the issue.Consider this excerpt regarding the Supreme Court’s same-sex marriage:“That was a hard one,” Tonette said,

To most people with at least an average reading ability, Thomas wrote no such thing. The justice opined that dignity is not something that is bestowed or taken

The president of the United States on Monday allowed two media questions about ISIS, suggesting reporters should be grateful. "I didn’t even plan to do this," Obama said. "You guys got two bonus questions." The questions Barack Obama permitted came after his prepared remarks during a Pentagon photo-op following an alleged meeting on the rampaging terror group.

Federal authorities have raided the Indiana home of Subway spokesman Jared Fogle. The FBI´s Indianapolis division confirmed the investigation to Business Insider, but would not disclose the reason for the raid. Fox59 broke the news of the raid. It reports: "FBI sources told FOX59 state and federal and state investigators were serving warrants at Fogle’s Zionsville home in connection with a child pornography investigation." Fox59 notes that that earlier this year, the director of Fogle´s charitable foundation, the Jared Foundation, was arrested in a child pornography case. The foundation cut ties with the director, Russell Taylor, following his arrest.

They don’t mean to; quite the contrary, they publish an article intended to diminish Donald Trump – with an outline of how some of the contracted construction workers at the Washington DC “Post Office Hotel” are illegal alien workers. However, this is exactly why there is a benefit to Donald Trump as an irregular candidate. Trump is actually a “Main Street” businessman, not a “Wall Street” financier. Trump’s business interests, and ultimately most of his net wealth, is actually physical in nature. Hotels, resorts, golf courses, brands etc. are all real commodities with actual valuation based on their individual business

It´s been three weeks since Rachel Dolezal´s parents outed her as a white woman heading the Spokane NAACP. In that time, the national media has focused on the woman who, for reasons that remain unclear, hid her racial identity and the extent of her deception. This is not a story about Dolezal. It´s about Spokane, my hometown. A medium-sized, tight-knit city in eastern Washington that, frankly, had enough problems without the Dolezal controversy, a city that has long struggled with race, seeing little bursts of progress and then watching it all burn up in the lights of national TV cameras.

If it is reached in the coming days, a nuclear deal with Iran will be, at best, an unsatisfying and risky compromise. Iran’s emergence as a threshold nuclear power, with the ability to produce a weapon quickly, will not be prevented; it will be postponed, by 10 to 15 years. In exchange, Tehran will reap hundreds of billions of dollars in sanctions relief it can use to revive its economy and fund the wars it is waging around the Middle East. Whether this flawed deal is sustainable will depend on a complex set of verification arrangements and provisions for restoring sanctions

Lessons From U.S. Women´s Soccer Rout

"You could find no better metaphor for the way the rest of the world can now compete head-to-head more effectively than ever with America," Thomas Friedman wrote in 2005, "than the struggles of the U.S. Olympic basketball team." On Sunday, the U.S. women´s national soccer team beat Japan, 5-2, in what was the most-watched soccer telecast in American history. What´s that a metaphor for? Friedman´s claim, about the 2004 men´s Olympic basketball team, came in a chapter titled "The Quiet Crisis" in his mega-bestselling globalization book "The World Is Flat." Americans had invented basketball and dominated it for decades, Friedman reasoned, but

ESPN became the latest company on Monday to distance itself from Donald Trump, the billionaire Republican presidential candidate who kicked off his White House bid last month with inflammatory remarks about Mexican immigrants. The sports media empire opted to re-locate its upcoming ESPY Celebrity Golf Classic from Trump National Golf Club. The tournament, which is scheduled for July 14, will now be held at Pelican Hill Golf Club in the Los Angeles area.

RICHMOND — Democratic lawmakers and gay rights advocates on Monday fired back at Republican leaders in the House of Delegates for wanting to make religious freedom legislation — which they see as discriminatory against same-sex couples — a top priority in the 2016 General Assembly session. “While Virginia Democrats are focused on creating jobs, Republicans have admitted that their top legislative priority is discriminating against people,”said Democratic Party of Virginia chairwoman Susan Swecker. “Focusing on Indiana-style discrimination laws instead of growing our economy is irresponsible, dangerous and hopelessly out of touch.” While Republicans say they will abide by the recent historic U.S. Supreme

Coulter said, “I notice we’ve been warned all week watch out for ISIS, watch out for ISIS this weekend, and no, instead Americans were killed by immigrants. This wasn’t the only illegal immigrant, and it doesn’t have to be limited to illegal immigrants, the government is allowing people who have no right to be here into our country,

Via the Examiner, count me in with John Nolte and Sean Davis in wondering why this grand humiliation is being treated as a Hillary scandal instead of a media scandal. Davis: It was a truly embarrassing spectacle, but not for Hillary Clinton. It was embarrassing for the press, because they willingly allow this nonsense to keep happening. It almost appears as though America’s political media are suffering from something approaching Battered Reporter Syndrome: yeah, she tied us up, but only once; she still respects us. Hillary’s strategy in the face of an all-too-compliant media makes perfect sense. Why wouldn’t she

On Monday’s broadcast of “The O’Reilly Factor,” host Bill O’Reilly took real estate mogul and GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump’s side in the immigration. O’Reilly said Trump was correct on two calls – the wall on the southern border he had proposed and who was responsible for the death of Kate Steinle, which was the result of murder by an illegal immigrant that had been deported five times. “So Trump is correct in saying that only a massive wall will stop the chaos and even then drugs and people will get through although not to the extent they do now,” O’Reilly said. “Apparently

The fact Hillary Clinton is well known is allowing her to keep her policy positions unknown. Thus far her 2016 strategy completely contradicts 2008’s — then Hillary was a policy diva, today we must divine where she stands. The danger in Clinton’s short-term approach is it threatens to increase the long-held questions many Americans have about her. After decades of seeing her in the brightest public spotlight, we feel we know Hillary Clinton all too well, but increasingly we find that we do not know her positions at all. It was not always thus. In 2008, she ran for president as a

Earlier Monday, Fiorina campaign manager Frank F.

The comedy legend, long silent about accusations lodged against him, admitted to getting drugs for the purposes of drugging women—in his own words. On July 6, the Associated Press reported that Bill Cosby testified in 2005 he had obtained Quaaludes to drug young women and had indeed dosed at least one woman. This admission, from a lawsuit that was settled in 2006, should move the Cosby controversy forward in a major way. Certain aspects of it just can’t be controversial anymore. Since Cosby’s alleged practices of drugging women with sexual intentions came under new scrutiny last year—thanks in part to

Congress returns to Washington after the Independence Day break with a slate of hefty items on the to-do list. But at least one leading social conservative wants to ensure that lawmakers spend a few minutes discussing the Supreme Court’s recent decision to legalize same-sex marriage. Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) says he is working on introducing a nonbinding resolution of disapproval against the high court’s ruling. “We should bring it to the floor and have a debate and let people register their positions,” he said in an interview Monday afternoon.

President Obama last week spiked the ball on the Supreme Court’s decisions to legalize gay marriage and to ratify the Affordable Care Act. Yet it is difficult to see quite how Obama had much to do with these decisions — or, to the degree he did, that they are earth-shattering. He twice ran for president expressing opposition to gay marriage while emphasizing the religious element of holy matrimony, which, he argued, precluded same-sex marriages. Is he delighted that the Court ignored his prior views? On the Obamacare front, all the Supreme Court did was to clean up the Affordable Care Act, in

For the U.S. national team´s stunning 5-2 win over Japan at the Women´s World Cup on Sunday, a rout that made the Americans the first team ever to win three world championships, soccer´s global governing body will award the team $2 million — about 5 percent of the $35 million FIFA gave to the German victors of last year´s World Cup. And while viewers made the Sunday match by far the most-watched soccer game in American TV history, little of that excitement could be seen in the tourney´s marketing deals.

LOS ANGELES — A GENERATION ago, this West Coast metropolis became a “third world city.” At least in the rhetoric of certain East Coast thinkers. A 1991 book by David Rieff cited visitors who were stunned by “seeing nothing but brown faces, hearing nothing but Spanish on the streets.” The arrival of coffee-colored Latino masses (like me and my Guatemalan-American family), together with the spread of Mandarin and Korean logograms on street signs, led Mr. Rieff to call this the “capital of the third world.” As a native of the city, I was offended to hear it tagged with such a denigrating
