U.S. State Department says may ask Trump to scrap another Obama climate order

Such a move would deepen the Trump administration's already broad rejection of former President Barack Obama's policies on global warming, which Trump has repeatedly suggested is not as serious as scientists claim. In the 2014 executive order, Obama directed the State Department and other agencies to factor climate resilience into development programs to help vulnerable populations around the world protect themselves from the effects of droughts, floods, and storms exacerbated by climate change...

Manafort worked with Kilimnik, reported Russian operative, even after criminal charges: Reports

Empirical SCOTUS: If Ginsburg leaves, it could be the liberals’ biggest loss yet – A look back at previous justices replaced with more conservative successors

The saga over Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s health seems to ebb and flow from the headlines almost daily. Part of the mystery relates to the amount of information shared with the public. We know that, while treating Ginsburg for rib fractures, doctors found malignant lesions in her lungs that were promptly removed, and that subsequent tests have shown no evidence of any other cancer. Ginsburg has since missed oral arguments and is reportedly recovering at home while keeping current with the cour...

As the record-breaking, 27-day partial government shutdown continues to affect millions of Americans — those paid by the government, and those dependent on funding and services left unavailable — the Trump administration has ensured that certain corners of the government go unaffected. And here, we see the administration’s priorities: Roughly 46,000 IRS workers, for example, will be forced to work without pay even though their services aren’t, seemingly, essential. But tax returns must go out...

No, the government shutdown isn’t a ‘crisis’

This government shutdown is now longer than any in history. The media keep using the word “crisis.” “Shutdown sows chaos, confusion and anxiety!” says The Washington Post. “Pain spreads widely.” The New York Times headlined, it’s all “just too much!” But wait. Looking around America, I see people going about their business — families eating in restaurants, employees going to work, children playing in playgrounds, etc. I have to ask: Where’s the crisis? Pundits talk as if government is the most i...
