    I do hope that Gavin “Toast” Schmidt, the head of NASA’s Goddard Institute of Space Studies (GISS), followed the advice I gave him a few months back. Because it now looks very much as if he and many of his colleagues are about to face exciting new job opportunities, hopefully in areas best suited to their talents, such as the challenging world of fast-food retail. Yes, as we predicted, NASA is going to be stripped of the two main roles it enjoyed under the Obama administration – Muslim outreach and green propaganda – and return to its original day (and...

    A special election to fill the District 10 state Senate seat, vacated by Bethany Hall-Long, now Lt. Governor, has drawn not just national attention, but national funding as well. It is an unprecedented amount---perhaps nearly 10 times as much as what is traditionally spent on a local state Senate seat race.  Observers said it would appear to be the Democratic Party pushing to maintain one of its final bastions of control in a state, following what many in the party feel was a shocking loss nationwide during the presidential election.

    With immigration courts reaching a record backlog in 2016, Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly ordered Monday that illegal immigrants who have been in the U.S. for less than two years should be allowed to be deported without a court hearing. Kelly signed two memos Monday that made significant changes to the nation’s immigration policy. They ordered the immediate construction of a border wall, expanded the amount of local police who will enforce immigration law, and put every illegal immigrant — excluding those protected under President Obama’s executive amnesty — at risk of deportation. Condemnation of the plan by pro-immigration...

    An illegal alien accused of hacking two men to death in a Honduran liquor store in 1993 has been arrested in North Carolina as part of a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) operation. Francisco Escobar-Orellana, a 56-year-old illegal alien from Honduras, was arrested on Tuesday morning near his home in Hope Mills. Escobar had been arrested in North Carolina in July 2011 for driving under the influence. It is unclear why he was released at that time since, as ICE stated on Wednesday, Honduras had filed an arrest warrant for him in 2005. According to an ICE press release:

In this comprehensive report, the Lepanto Institute confirms these suspicions by reviewing the philosophy of its leadership, its own documents, and government reports.

    The double standard continues, folks. On Tuesday afternoon’s CNN Newsroom, host Brooke Baldwin seemed dismayed and testy when it came to questioning whether or not the attendees at solid congressional Republican town halls are liberal protesters, bemoaning the idea as “dangerous” rhetoric to be articulating.  Of course, NewsBusters readers will find this story to be quite humorous after recalling how this same network dismissed conservatives at town halls in 2009 and 2010 as astroturf or paid brown shirts.

The two most fruitful methods for discovering exoplanets (the "transit method" and the "radial velocity method") both give a straightforward way to determine the distance between a star and an exoplanet.

    Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback on Wednesday vetoed a bill that would undo his signature income tax cut and his allies prevented the Legislature from overriding him, setting up future confrontations over balancing the state budget. Less than two hours after Brownback vetoed the bill, the state House voted 85-40 to override him, giving supporters one vote more than the two-thirds majority they needed. But the vote in the Senate hours later was 24-16, which was three shy of a two-thirds majority. By not overriding the veto, lawmakers will have to draft another plan aimed at closing projected budget shortfalls totaling...

    In 1930, the Anglican Communion abandoned the universal Christian moral teaching of two millennia, which condemned artificial birth control as a grave moral evil, contra naturam, and destructive of marriage. It did so by allowing the individual subjective conscience to overrule the absolute moral norm that such actions are intrinsically evil and thus allow no exceptions.This was a death knell for Anglicanism as a moral authority. The result has been not only the total independence of Anglicans from their traditional moral teaching but the collapse of religious practice among the laity (except for the African branches of this once vibrant...

Therefore, we can make a solid comparison on what gun...

I’d say second place goes to Matthew 5:39, “…if a man strike you on the right cheek, turn to him the other as well.”Misunderstanding this passage has led to public prayers for “our so-called ‘enemies’”—as if Christ and his Church don’t have enemies both human and spiritual. Misunderstanding this passage has led to exhortations to a literally helpless pacifism—which would have puzzled Pope Pius...

    As the Trump administration expands its deportation policy, Chicago Public Schools told its principals that they should not let any agents from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement into schools without a criminal warrant. “To be very clear, CPS does not provide assistance to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in the enforcement of federal civil immigration law,” chief education officer Janice Jackson wrote. The district also distributed palm cards in English and Spanish from the National Immigrant Justice Center containing such legal advice as not opening doors to immigration officials. President Donald Trump campaigned on building a wall to keep...

    Muslim students mocking the Holocaust, inciting violence against Jews, delegitimizing the existence of Israel, and pushing a false Palestinian and “Islamophobia” victimhood narrative has become commonplace. The media is trying desperately to portray President Trump as responsible for antisemitism in the U.S.; in reality, they should be looking at Students for Justice in Palestine and its allied groups. And now this hatred has even entered schools for the youngest children. Nancy Salem, who is quoted in the article below, taught at The Children’s Courtyard in South Arlington, Texas. Salem was also “a member of the UTA chapter of Students for...

    RUSH: So here’s Maxine Waters adding to the culture and the civility of our public discourse. I’m looking for the audio sound bite even now. Grab number 13 and number 14. This was last night on a cable network, and she was discussing Trump’s relationship with the Russians. You know, Trump worked with the Russians to steal the election, is what the Democrats think. You know why they think that? Because Trump cracked a joke. There were 33,000 missing Hillary emails. Nobody could find them. She claimed she deleted them. She handed over 30,000 to the State Department. They had...

    Prosecutors from the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office confirmed Wednesday they’d asked a judge to sentence the gang member accused of murdering a Whittier Police Officer to four years in prison in 2014. An L.A. Superior Court judge sentenced Michael Mejia to half that. Mejia completed the prison term last April and was released on probation. In the ten months since, Mejia has been arrested, jailed, and released at least five times under the supervision of L.A. County Probation Officers, until he was wounded in a shootout Monday morning and arrested on suspicion of murdering Whittier Police Officer Keith...

    CANNON BALL, N.D – After seven months of protests, beating drums, freezing nights and canned chili, police shut down campsites once occupied by tens of thousands of environmentalists and Native Americans fighting the North Dakota Access Pipeline project. At least one person was injured Wednesday after protesters set fire to a handful of wooden structures at the makeshift campsite. Cecily Fong, a spokeswoman for the state Department of Emergency Services, says the extent of the unidentified female's injuries weren't known. Fong said an ambulance was being sent to the encampment. Most of the 200 to 300 protesters who remained at...

    I am not trying to scare anyone, but honestly you must consider all angles in this breaking news situation on the Orville Dam. This is only one viewpoint from a local Sheriff, but if you are near the Orville Dam you should at least weigh the story against your situation. The water levels of the Oroville Dam have dropped, somewhat. However, many officals fear that if the decision had to be made, the people could not be evacuated in time. Among those who expressed this specific doubt is Butte County Sheriff, Kory Honea.’

    RUSH: Now, last night on Fox, the Fox News Channel, there was a town hall on Trump’s immigration ideas and so forth and stuff in Jacksonville, Florida. And the first sound bite we have was obviously Florida residents, or we think it was Florida residents. I mean, the way the Democrats pack these things, you don’t know. But Fox says it’s a group of Florida residents about Trump’s immigration policy. And one resident, Hatiche Iaconangelo was the guest or was one of the attendees. And so the question was asked, “So what do you think about what you’re hearing here...

    Whittier Police Chief Jeff Piper has blamed Gov. Jerry Brown’s controversial early prison release program for the murder of one of his officers on Monday. Officer Keith Boyer, 53, was shot dead when he and his partner, Patrick Hazell, responded to a traffic accident in a tony suburb of Los Angeles known as Whittier’s Friendly Hills on Monday morning. At an emotional news conference later that day, Piper laid the blame squarely on AB 109, which Gov. Brown signed into law in 2011. “We need to wake up. Enough is enough,” Piper said. “This is a senseless, senseless tragedy that...
