Bloomfield must pay $700K for
lawyer fees in Ten Commandments case

Daily Times [Farmington, NM], by Hannah Grover

Farmington — The city of Bloomfield is considering using online fundraising to pay the $700,000 it owes from the lawsuit regarding the Ten Commandments monument that was formerly located outside of City Hall. Because the courts ruled the monument violated the U.S. Constitution and represented a government endorsement of religion, the city must now pay the legal fees for the American Civil Liberties Union, which filed the complaint in 2012 on behalf of two Bloomfield residents, Janie Felix and Buford Coone. The nonprofit law firm Alliance Defending Freedom provided Bloomfield with free legal representation throughout

Bloomfield is a very small, pretty darn broke town. They can´t pay this, it will bankrupt them. But does the ACLU and the rest of the Godless left care? No, they don´t, its all about their agenda and winning at any cost.

Hire private investigators to look into the history of their lawyers, and the judge.

Appeal, delay, postpone. Then ignore the ruling.

Time to play by their rules.

The government can "endorse" all it wants, it just can´t "enforce". For those educationally challenged, see "Church of England" run by King George III for reference.

Judges don´t have to award attorney´s fees, in fact in the context of all of the lawsuits the courts hear it´s not very common. It´s generally used as a sort of punishment for the losing side for having dragged the prevailing party into court for no good reason. But the ACLU no doubt has a whole stable of pet judges all around the country, even in New Mexico. If it was such an open-and-shut case that attorney´s fees are warranted, how did the ACLU rack up nearly 3/4 of a million dollars in fees?

The Ten Commandments the fundamentals needed for a justice & safe ´running´ of society. Every society & civilization has such rules - and they are not man-made. They are enshrined in the laws of nearly all the countries of the world - whether they are followed or not is a different story. If the ALCU want a just society they should support these laws.

It´s time to start holding the judges accountable. Federal judges may have lifetime tenure; however, it´s appropriate to shame them in public. Stupid federal judges have done great damage to this nation.

Sharpe: Oil, gas, and climate change

There is no middle ground in the climate debate. That is because the debate is being conducted by the two extremes, both of whom I believe are dangerous to our society. The Deniers, many of them in the oil and gas industry, point to a number of possible natural causes for the warming, dismissing even the possibility that man could be a contributing factor. (snip) Equally extreme are the environmental groups on the other side of the conversation. They have declared war against oil and gas, exemplified by the “Keep It in the Ground” movement. This side of the argument, however, is

Judge dismisses Chaco-area drilling lawsuit

Environmental activists are regrouping after a federal judge Monday tossed a lawsuit against the federal government regarding drilling permits in the San Juan Basin, including sites near the Chaco Culture National Historical Park. Despite an earlier ruling that signaled the claims had merit, United States District Court Judge James Browning issued an opinion and an amended order late Monday determining federal land managers did not violate historic preservation laws since they considered the effects of the wells on historical sites. The decision comes in a long-running dispute over management of vast expanses of land surrounding Chaco Culture National Historical Park. Efforts in

An F-16 from Luke Air Force Base in Arizona has crashed. Luke officials said in a release Tuesday afternoon that an F-16C assigned to the 56th Fighter Wing diverted and tried to land at Lake Havasu City Municipal Airport in Arizona at about 10:35 a.m. local time. During the landing, according to the release, “the aircraft departed the prepared surface.” The pilot ejected and is in good condition, and is being taken to Havasu Regional Medical Center, Luke officials said.

Aztec resident Robin Collins had the happy task of ordering a corsage from the Lil Aztec Flower Shop for her daughter on Wednesday in advance of Aztec High School’s prom on Saturday. However, that milestone, like many to come, bears a reminder of a tragedy for many families in the community.(snip) Many Aztec residents are still recovering from a Dec. 7 school shooting that left two 17-year-old students and the 21-year-old shooter dead. Though locals say the community and school have worked hard to define a new normal in the four months since the incident, many say the healing process is far

Albuquerque, NM — While students across the country plan walkouts to protest gun violence, teens at a New Mexico high school still reeling from a deadly shooting in December have organized a “walk-up” to help unify a rural campus with varied ideas on school safety. Students at Aztec High School asked administrators if they could gather around the flag pole Wednesday to honor the 21 students killed in recent months in school shootings — 17 in Florida, two in Kentucky and two of their own. They also will be kicking off a campaign centered on 21 pledges, which will try to

25 cities where crime is soaring

Violent crime is a broad designation consisting of the most egregious infractions — aggravated assault, robbery, rape, and murder. According to the FBI, there were 386 violent crimes for every 100,000 people in the United States in 2016. While the crime rate has fluctuated slightly in recent years, the incidence of violent crime in the United States remains effectively unchanged from half a decade ago. The national violent crime rate does not tell the whole story, however. Crime is a local issue, and in some parts of the country, violence is surging. The causes for the increases in violent crime vary from

FARMINGTON — The Farmington City Council unanimously has voted against moving forward with installing a solar array near the Bluffview Power Plant. “I really want to go on the record and say I’m not against solar,” Councilor Linda Rodgers said during a meeting Tuesday evening. “The thing I can’t wrap my head around is that it really does not make economic sense.” The councilors said they believe solar will have a place in Farmington’s power generation assets, but they do not think the utility should pay twice the amount for solar power that it pays to purchase other power from the market.

Conservative syndicated columnist George Will wrote this week that Vice President Mike Pence has “become America’s most repulsive public figure.” Why does Will think Pence deserves this absurd slur? Apparently, the columnist has found the vice president guilty of the heinous crime of being a decent man. Will announced in 2016 that he was leaving the Republican Party over the nomination of Donald Trump as the GOP’s presidential candidate. So it is no surprise that Will has become part of the so-called “resistance” to the duly elected president of the United States. He’s even become a contributor to NBC and its

Shortly after President Donald Trump withdrew the United States from the Iran nuclear deal last Tuesday, an adviser to a top Iranian official retaliated by dropping a bombshell threat. The threat concerned the president’s plan to reimpose sanctions on Iran: An adviser to H.J.Ansari Zarif, the deputy for parliamentary and Iranian affairs within Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, specifically threatened to expose every corrupt official who accepted bribes to make the Iran deal happen three years ago. “If Europeans stop trading with Iran and don’t put pressure on US then we will reveal which western politicians and how much money they

Sen. Lindsey Graham blasted the ´terrible joke´ a White House aide told about cancer-stricken John McCain and said if his own aide made such an error he would apologize. Graham, who has traveled the globe with McCain and is one of his closest friends in the Senate, spoke after the White House refused to apologize for the crude remark and press secretary Sarah Sanders fumed about leaks rather than condemning the remark. Asked if he was satisfied with the White House response, Graham, a South Carolina Republican, responded: ´No, not really.´ He called Kelly Sadler´s reported joke about McCain´s opposition to Trump CIA

Washington - Senate candidate Mitt Romney of Utah said Sunday a prominent Baptist minister shouldn’t be giving the prayer that opens the US Embassy in Jerusalem because he’s a “religious bigot.” In a tweet, the former Massachusetts governor and 2012 Republican presidential nominee criticized Dallas minister Robert Jeffress for his remarks about Jews, Mormons and Islam. The Jerusalem Open House on Monday also lambasted Jeffress’s participation, saying he had in the past called gay rights promoters “pedophilia activists” and said homosexuality was a “perversion.” Jeffress, a Southern Baptist who vigorously

Martin Luther King Jr. once said there is nothing in the world more dangerous than sincere ignorance. Well, sincere ignorance had a banner day last week when President Trump unilaterally withdrew from the Iran nuclear deal. A CNN/ORC poll taken shortly before Trump’s decision found that a majority of Americans — 63 percent — wanted the U.S. to stay in the deal. But get this: 62 percent of Americans believed Iran had violated its terms. To me, the second result is the more alarming. That poll is proof of sincere ignorance of the deal on the part of nearly two-thirds of Americans. They are under the spell of Trump’s

A profane tirade during a parent-teacher conference this week at a Dallas elementary school led to a teacher being injured and a woman facing assault charges. The alleged attack happened Tuesday at John Neely Bryan Elementary School in east Oak Cliff. A teacher reported that a woman accused her of "pinching her nephew" and assaulted her during an 11 a.m. parent-teacher conference, according to the arrest warrant. Lakietha Lashell Lawrence, 27, was arrested by Dallas school district police officers on charges of assaulting a public servant. She was taken to the Dallas County Jail. According to the arrest warrant affidavit,

Washington - Among recent pilgrims to the Arizona ranch of Senator John McCain was Joe Biden. The Republican, who has an aggressive form of brain cancer, urged the former vice-president to “not walk away” from politics, Biden told the New York Times. It did not take much imagination to see this as a metaphorical shove – into the next race for the White House. Biden has the desire, the pedigree – and the rage. On Friday, incensed by reports that a White House aide had dismissed McCain with the terse comment “he’s dying anyway”, the 75-year-old Democrat let rip, declaring

After months of swaggering hesitation, President Trump finally announced the United States’ withdrawal from the nuclear deal with Iran, to which Britain, France, Russia, China, Germany and the European Union are also parties. This action tramples on European leaders, who urged Mr. Trump to exercise restraint in the interest of international security and multilateralism. Federica Mogherini, the European Union’s high representative for foreign affairs and security policy, reacted to Mr. Trump’s announcement with a sharp statement. The European Union and the rest of the international community, she said, would “preserve this nuclear deal.” The question is how. Notwithstanding an abundance of

We’re all educated by our peers and, over the years, a good portion of Donald Trump’s peers have been thugs. Operating in the New York construction world meant dealing with S&A Concrete, co-owned by "Fat Tony" Salerno of the Genovese crime family, and John Cody, the notorious head of Teamsters Local 282, who was convicted on racketeering and tax evasion charges. Building casinos in Atlantic City, N.J., brought Trump into similarly genteel circles. Trump’s hero was Roy Cohn, who unfortunately was born too late to serve the emperor Caligula.

Donald Trump is easily the most psychoanalyzed president of modern times. His decision-making style and behavior have been hotly debated by journalists, voters, politicians, world leaders and pundits who have bestowed upon him any number of fanciful, grave-sounding mental conditions, calling him, among other things, a narcissist, a sociopath, a psychopath and a paranoiac. Trump has said he distrusts mental health professionals, so we don’t have access to a formal assessment of his psychology. But colloquially speaking, perhaps the best explanation for the president’s behavior (snip) They are quick to respond to threats and to
