NYT’s ‘Leaked’ Bombshell Climate Report Was Actually Public for Months

A draft government climate assessment The New York Times “obtained” and claims is not yet public has actually been available online since January, according to scientists who worked on the report. The Times reportedly obtained a draft copy of the upcoming National Climate Assessment, quoting unnamed scientists who feared “the Trump administration could change or suppress the report.” The New York Times also reported that global warming skeptics were “equally worried that the draft report, as well as … Read entire article »

Congressman’s Bill Would Make It Too Easy to Prosecute Innocent People

Earlier this year, Rep. Daniel Donovan, R-N.Y., introduced a bill that would criminalize the mailing of tableting or encapsulating machines with only few exceptions, presumably to prevent their use in illegal drug manufacturing. The basic function of a tableting machine is to compress powdered materials into solid tablets. These machines are often used by pharmaceutical companies, as well as illegal drug manufacturers, to make base materials easily consumable. There’s just one slight problem: Mailing these machines in furtherance of a drug crime is already a felony under the Controlled Substances Act. There is no need for a second law to criminalize the same activity. This is the second time Donovan has introduced a bill of this nature in an effort combat the manufacture of illegal substances. While he should certainly be applauded for … Read entire article »

K-12 School Agrees to Gender Inclusion Policy With No Notice or ‘Opt Out’ for Parents

After facing a lawsuit over its treatment of a kindergartener who identifies as transgender, a nationally recognized public charter school in Minnesota has agreed to adopt a far-reaching inclusionary policy. The school also agreed to pay the child’s parents $120,000. In the settlement, Nova Classical Academy promised to establish a gender inclusion policy that doesn’t allow parents to opt out “based on religious or conscience objections,” and also “not [to] call parents’ or guardians’ attention to the policy.” The agreement ends a 16-month legal battle between the charter school and David and Hannah Edwards, parents of a child who was born male but presents as a girl. The Edwardses filed a complaint against Nova Classical Academy, in St. Paul, Minnesota, claiming the school “failed to protect their child and other gender nonconforming and transgender students at … Read entire article »

How States Can Get Exemptions From Obamacare’s Rules

The Senate’s failure to pass even a watered-down version of health care reform was compounded by its decision to leave Washington rather than finish the job. At this juncture, the nation’s governors and state legislators should use every legal means available to them to reform their health insurance markets to the best of their ability and to reduce their citizens’ health insurance costs. The Cost Crisis Federal regulation of state health insurance markets, which contributes directly to higher premium costs, has been a disaster. Enrollees are hammered by double-digit premium increases and deductibles annually climbing into many thousands of dollars. While lower income persons are largely insulated from these rate shocks because they are heavily subsidized, approximately 10 million middle-class persons in the individual markets must face these costs directly—without even the benefit of … Read entire article »

8-Year-Old Sues Private School Over Gender Identity

8-Year-Old Sues Private School Over Gender Identity

An 8-year-old student identified as transgender is suing a private school in Orange Country, California, for failing to let the child express a preferred gender identity. The lawsuit, filed Aug. 2, alleges that Heritage Oak Private School violated the Unruh Civil Rights Act, which outlaws discrimination based on sex or sexual orientation, because it wouldn’t allow Nikki Brar to wear the school’s girls’ uniform, use the girls’ bathroom, or be called a “she.” Lawyers said the student is determined to fight for … Read entire article »

Group Sues Vermont AG for Withholding Emails About Climate Crusade Against Oil Groups

The attorney general’s Aug. 1 decision … Read entire article »

Alabama’s Long History With Senate Special Elections By Geoffrey Skelley

The 2017 Alabama special election for the U.S. Senate kicks off with party primaries this coming Tuesday (Aug. 15). Should one or both parties have no candidate win a majority that day, a primary runoff will take place on Sept. 26. Both sides have crowded fields, but given the dark red hue of the state, most expect the eventual Republican nominee to hold the seat for the GOP. The appointed incumbent, Sen. Luther Strange (R), appears somewhat vulnerable, at least in the Republican primary. … Read entire article »

More Voters Give Thumbs Up to Union Leaders

Nissan workers in Mississippi recently voted against joining the United Auto Workers (UAW), a blow to the already struggling union presence in the south. But despite the loss for the UAW, voters and union members alike now think union leaders in general are doing a good job representing their members, and far fewer feel labor unions have too much political influence.

How Did the Dems’ IT Scandal Suspects Get Here? by Michelle Malkin

Most Still Say ‘No’ to Letting Illegal Immigrants Vote

A sizable majority of voters still opposes giving illegal immigrants the vote, even in local elections. Democrats remain much more supportive of the idea than other voters do, however. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 33% of Likely U.S. Voters believe that illegal immigrants should be allowed to vote if they can prove they live in this country and pay taxes.  That compares to 26% in March of last year and 35% in May 2015, the first time we asked this question. But 60% continue to oppose letting illegal immigrants vote, although that’s down from a high of 67%. (To see survey question wording, click here.) (Want a free daily e-mail update?

Update on 2 bombs-in-the-making: N. Korea’s nuke & Al Gore’s new movie

**Written by Doug Powers This morning I was tracking the progress of a couple of bombs-in-the-making — the first is in North Korea. Here’s the latest: While President Trump delivered a brash warning of “fire and fury,” Rex Tillerson, his secretary of state, is pushing for cooler heads and continued diplomacy. The belligerent message from an American president was meant to match the aggressive, at times ridiculous, rhetoric of the North Korean state, according to Tillerson. “What the president was doing was sending a strong message to North Korea in a language that Kim Jong-un would understand,” Tillerson told reporters as he traveled back from Southeast Asia. “It was important that he deliver that message to avoid any miscalculation on their part.” He stopped down in Guam, a small Pacific island and an American territory, … Read entire article »
