    Group Sues Obama Over Access to Information
    What was supposed to be the “most transparent presidency in history” is facing intense scrutiny for blocking reporter requests for information. A DC legal organization is suing President Obama for alleged Freedom of Information Act violations by 12 federal agencies. The group claims agencies have delayed handing over documents requested by media outlets like USA Today, Cox Media, The Washington Examiner, as well as the Los Angeles Times, which was delayed by two years. As first reported by The Washington Post, the complaint alleges each of the FOIA requests sent to the White House were held up by the president’s counsel in an attempt to improperly delay release of certain documents.

    Renewing the American Idea
    by Paul Ryan, U.S. House of Representatives
    The Declaration of Independence remains the defining statement of the American Idea and the greatest political statement of human liberty. We all know the stories about how the American Revolution was a difficult and often desperate struggle. But we forget in hindsight how unlikely it was that our forefathers would succeed. Many times defeat seemed all but inevitable. Yet that small band of patriot-statesmen achieved victory against a long-established ruler of seemingly unlimited power and authority.

    Harry Reid In Denial About Montana Senate Seat
    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid still thinks a Democrat will keep the Montana Senate seat, even though the party’s best candidate ended his campaign amid a plagiarism scandal a mere three months before the election. “We are doing really well in Montana,” Reid told the Argus Leader. But that assessment flies in the face of political reality. Democrats’ chances in Montana are especially grim because of the recent resignation of John Walsh, who was appointed to office in February to replace Max Baucus, who retired.

    Trampling on Coal Country families
    Obama and EPA are determined to destroy US coal, people’s lives and welfare be damned
    As President Obama and his Environmental Protection Agency continue waging war on coal, oil and gas – it is families in Coal Country, USA that are being hammered hardest. States that mine coal or use it to generate affordable electricity for homes, hospitals and factories are losing jobs, facing widespread power plant closures, and seeing their electricity prices climb higher and higher. The effects on people’s health and welfare grow steadily worse, but are ignored by EPA, which is fixated on “preventing dangerous manmade climate change,” at any cost. In an added insult, EPA gladly holds “public listening sessions” in big cities that have large numbers of eco activists. But it refuses to hold similar events in communities that its regulations are clobbering.

    It's Time to Replace the EPA
    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is a rogue agency that has long outlived its effectiveness and should be dismantled and replaced, according to Jay Lehr, Ph.D., science director for The Heartland Institute. In a new Heartland Policy Study, “Replacing the Environmental Protection Agency,” Lehr writes, "It made sense for there to be a single national agency given authority to enforce the nation’s new environmental protection laws in the first decade of the 1970s. But by the end of that decade, the lion’s share of benefits from that noble experiment were already achieved and the states could have been, and should have been, allowed to play their intended role in implementing the new programs."

    Ferguson's Old Grievances
    Ferguson, Missouri and its re-run of 1950s civil rights grievances has now achieved national stature with the dispatch of our black Attorney General, Eric Holder, by our black President, Barack Obama, to address the unhappiness of blacks in the community over the shooting of a 6’4”, nearly 300 pound, black teenager, Michael Brown, who we are repeatedly told was “unarmed.” According to witnesses, Brown had accosted a police officer, Darren Wilson, after being told not to walk down the middle of the street. After that, he reportedly “bum rushed” the officer who shot him.

    MSM and Left Racism on Parade in Ferguson
    The American news media and Black racial pimps are just as much to blame for racial violence as the rioters.
    Talk about deja vu Trayvon Martin spin all over again, I could hardly believe my eyes. During a discussion on CNN about the shooting of Michael Brown by a white police officer, in the background was a photo of Brown in a school graduation cap and gown. Give me a break! Where was the picture from the surveillance video of the 6’4”, 290 pound thuggish Brown grabbing the store clerk by the throat after stealing cigars?

    The Ferguson Fix Is In
    by Matthew Vadum
    As mass hysteria over the fatal shooting of a Ferguson, Missouri resident Michael Brown grips the progressive movement, President Obama is sending the most divisive, corrupt race-baiter in his cabinet to the riot-torn St. Louis suburb where the suspect died. U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, who has single-mindedly focused on converting the Department of Justice into a racial grievance incubator, is scheduled to visit Ferguson, Mo., today in an appearance billed as an attempt to restore calm to a community that has erupted in almost daily violence since Brown, a young black man, was shot Aug. 9 by a police officer.

    Occupation of Cyprus Underscores Hypocrisy of Gaza Outrage
    by Victor Davis Hanson
    Cyprus is a beautiful island. But it has never recovered from the Turkish invasion of 1974. Turkish troops still control nearly 40 percent of the island -- the most fertile and formerly the richest portion. Not a single nation recognizes the legitimacy of the Turkish Cypriot state. In contrast, Greek Cyprus is a member of the European Union. Why, then, is the world not outraged at an occupied Cyprus the way it is at, say, Israel? We see such hypocrisy when the West stays silent while Muslims butcher each other by the thousands in Afghanistan, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya and Syria. Only when a Westernized country like Israel inflicts far less injury to Muslims does the West become irate.
