How NOT to win taxpayer sympathy: EPA bureaucrats plan ‘slow walk’ strategy with Trump

**Written by Doug Powers Apparently there's a new pastime being considered at the EPA under Trump: Doing barely enough to not get fired: Across the vast federal bureaucracy, Donald J.

Global warming about to cause tons of environmentally-conscious Standing Rock protesters’ garbage to turn toxic

**Written by Doug Powers The Dakota Access Pipeline protesters left a little gift so the locals will be able to remember all they did to fight for the well-being of Mother Gaia: North Dakota, you're welcome!

Of course: FBI director claims Hillary docs were dropped on holiday weekend for more transparency

Anybody buy this one? FBI Director James Comey defended the work of his agents Wednesday in a memo to staff, arguing the decision to spare Hillary Clinton and her aides from prosecution for their mistreatment of classified information was not a difficult one. “I have no patience for suggestions that we conducted ourselves as anything but what we are — honest, competent, and independent,” Comey wrote in the memo, first obtained by CNN. “Those suggesting that we are ‘political' or part of some...
