    This Bill Would Ease ‘Recovered’ Species Off the Endangered List

    It will be easier to take wildlife off the endangered and threatened lists if Congress passes a bill introduced by Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz.

    “The Endangered Species Act has been used as a sword instead of a shield,” Biggs told The Daily Signal in a phone interview.

    His bill would streamline the process of removing a species from the endangered list if the nation’s secretary of the interior “receives an objective, measurable, and scientific study demonstrating a species has recovered,” the Arizona Republican said in a press release. READ MORE...

    The Media Finds Conservative Leaders Guilty Until Proven Innocent

    First it was Republican Congressman Jim Jordan. Now it’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

    These men are considered guilty by association for being in proximity of wrongdoing that took place almost 30 years ago.

    Allegedly, Jordan took no action as a young assistant wrestling coach regarding sexual misconduct of the team’s doctor. And Kavanaugh was a law clerk for a judge later accused of sexual harassment.

    There will be questions to Kavanaugh during his confirmations hearings, which will relegate these absurd insinuations to the trash where they belong. But Jordan is an influential conservative congressman, and he is being hurt. READ MORE...

    MS-13 Threatens the Legitimacy of Salvadoran Government

    In a recent poll, residents of El Salvador were asked, “Who runs your country?” Forty-two percent reported gangs, while only 12 percent said the government.

    These results reveal a huge problem for El Salvador: The public’s lack of trust in its government threatens to dismantle the country’s democracy and stability.

    MS-13 is a dominant force in Salvadoran affairs. Outside the U.S., MS-13’s largest presence is in Central America, particularly in the northern triangle countries of El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras. READ MORE...

  • The ACLU Has Basically Quit Defending The Constitution

    The ACLU Has Basically Quit Defending The Constitution

    The American Civil Liberties Union, an organization that once so rigidly adhered to the neutral principles in the Constitution that it famously defended the right of a neo-Nazi group to march through the Jewish-laden Chicago suburb of Skokie, has been increasingly rejiggering its positions to correspond with the Left’s hard lurch towards cafeteria constitutionalism.

    This week, for example, one of its senior policy analysts came up with an imaginative rationalization for limiting gun rights. “The wide availability of guns and their misuse is leading to restrictions on Americans’ freedom,” the organization tweeted this week, “and that needs to be part of the firearms debate.” The piece the tweet links to makes a, “A Pro-Liberty Case for Gun Restrictions,” which, though it’s become a tediously misused cliché over the years, can only be described as Orwellian.

    Then-Secretary of State Clinton: “We Very Much Want To Have A Strong Russia”

    Whoa!  Hold the phone!  Actor James Woods tweeted out an old video of then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in which she openly said she and the Obama administration wanted a “strong Russia.”

    Woods’ response was, “Wait, what?” as I’m sure many people were thinking.

    “I mean we want very much to have a strong Russia because a strong, prosperous, stable Russia is, we think, in the interest of the world,” she said. READ MORE...

    Kids Who Attend Gov’t Preschool Learn Less, Misbehave More

    Latest results from the first randomized control trial of a state pre-kindergarten program found participants’ early gains quickly transformed into worse academic performance, more discipline problems, and higher special education placements than children who hadn’t participated. By second or third grade, the nearly 3,000 children studied who participated in Tennessee’s Voluntary Pre-K Program (TNVPK, or VPK) had statistically significant negative results compared to peers who mostly stayed home with their families.

  • Liberal Group Behind Resistance to Supreme Court Pick Hides Its Funding

    Liberal Group Behind Resistance to Supreme Court Pick Hides Its Funding

    A left-leaning advocacy group that plans to spend millions opposing Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court has obscured funding sources through an opaque organizational structure.

    Conservative advocacy groups dramatically outpaced liberal efforts on judicial confirmations in recent years, dominating the fundraising and communications space around Supreme Court nominations.

    But some Democratic operatives have formed a new progressive political outfit that hopes to close the right’s competitive advantage. Former Hillary Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon leads the operation, called Demand Justice, with support from alumni of the Clinton presidential campaign and the Obama administration. READ MORE...
