COLEBROOK, N.H.—Sally Zankowski is who comes when it’s too late. She’s there to define, investigate—and make sense of—another sudden death owed to opioid overdose in New Hampshire’s poorest and most remote county. Zankowski, 55, is the medical examiner for Coos County, which has the highest combined death rate due to drugs, alcohol, or suicide in all of New England. Of the death she encounters in the vast, sparsely populated region she covers, the cause is usually easy to determine.

How Jeff Sessions Just Stopped the Justice Department From Robbing the Public

It might seem strange to see a headline stating that the U.S. attorney general has stopped the Justice Department from robbing the public, but that is exactly what Attorney General Jeff Sessions just did. In a memorandum dated June 5 that was directed to the head of each component of the Department of Justice and to every U.S. attorney, Sessions revised the department’s settlement policy. During the George W. Bush and Obama administrations, senior Justice Department officials approved settlement agreements involving defendants such as Volkswagen and the Bank of America in which the defendants agreed to pay beaucoup bucks to end litigation over the government’s claims that the defendant had acted illegally. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); A novel feature of those agreements, however, was that the government allowed the defendants to pay some … Read entire article »

EPA Delays One of the Agency’s Most Expensive Regulations Ever

The Trump administration announced Tuesday evening it would delay the implementation of a smog rule that’s been called one of the costliest clean air regulations ever.

The rule lowers the national ground-level ozone, or smog, standard from 75 to 70 parts per billion.

6 Crimes Special Counsel Might Pursue in Trump-Russia Probe

What ousted FBI Director James Comey tells Congress could set the tone for what his predecessor, now the special counsel investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election, looks into. “Comparisons to Watergate are way over the top,” Ron Hosko says. But, barring any new bombshells when Comey testifies Thursday before the Senate Intelligence Committee, legal experts identify a few directions the case could go under Robert Mueller’s direction if evidence emerges of collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign. Mueller’s probe could lead to “obstruction of justice charges and possibly form the basis for impeachment,” said Nick Akerman, who served on the teams of two special prosecutors, Archibald Cox and Leon Jaworski, during the Watergate investigation.

This Bill Would Free Main Street From the Grip of Washington

America’s current financial regulatory system, begotten by some of the most liberal minds in this country, has consistently limited the ability of banks to serve their customers. It has forced community banks to bend to the will of an ever-expanding bureaucracy in Washington, D.C., for nearly a decade. What was this financial regulatory system that has been so destructive? (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); The Dodd-Frank Act—a bill passed by Democrats in 2010 that radically increased Washington’s grip on local financial institutions. In order to encourage the jumpstart of our economy, it is absolutely critical that capital is available to small and medium-sized businesses, something that is not currently possible under Dodd-Frank. Through outrageous and ill-thought regulations, Democrats created a financial framework that promoted “too big too fail” instead of banishing it to the pages of … Read entire article »

With Russia narrative crumbling, Nancy Pelosi floats new snoozer of a Trump scandal

**Written by Doug Powers The Comey hearing yesterday didn’t give the Democrats anything they can work with as far as shoring up their eroding Russia talking points, so Nancy Pelosi has moved closer the a new goal of adding “sleepiness” to the articles of impeachment: House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi says she has concerns about President Donald Trump’s “fitness for office” — and thinks he needs more sleep. Pelosi is citing Trump’s habit of early morning tweeting, as well as Thursday’s congressional testimony by former FBI Director James Comey. Comey told senators he believed Trump fired him because of the Russia investigation. Trump has come out with a tweet early Friday: “Despite so many false statements and lies, total and complete vindication … and WOW, Comey is a leaker.” Pelosi is assessing the president this … Read entire article »
