The U.S. Supreme Court has delivered a heavy blow to a major left-wing environmental group.In the 7-2 ruling, the justices sided with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, thwarting the Sierra Club’s bid to obtain documents concerning a regulation finalized in 2014 relating to power plants.“The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requires that federal agencies make records available to the public upon request unless those records fall within one of nine exemptions. Exemption 5 incorporates the privileges available to Government agencies in civil litigation, such as the deliberative process privilege, attorney-client privilege, and attorney work-product privilege,” Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett wrote.

It's always good when the hideous commies at the Sierra Club get defeated in court. Decades ago, when the Sierra Club was about publishing trail maps, and hiking guides, and volunteering for trail maintenance, I was a member. Once they went over to the Dark Side, I left and they have headed ever farther to the left, becoming an insane Leftist Luddite group who fights against everything good and right.

#2, you are probably thinking of Greenpeace. The Sierra Club founder was John Muir, in the 1890s, a preservationist who believed in parks for everyone, and building hiking trails to these beautiful places so people could enjoy them. The Sierra Club was a really good hiking club when I joined in the early 70s. Things changed, literally radically, soon thereafter. Greenpeace was founded in the 1970s by a group of around 8-10 people who were lobbying for some pretty sensible and pretty attainable environmental goals. Within around 10 years, ALL the original goals of Greenpeace had been accomplished....and the founders sort of wandered away to do other things leaving the organization alive, but somewhat dormant for a short period, but then it was taken over by professional leftists. One of the founders seriously regrets that they didn't shut down the organization, but just let it be taken over by crazies. I understand how this happens. I was one of the founders of a grassroots Kansas gun rights organization. We worked very hard for about 15 years and managed to help all the laws protecting and advancing gun rights in the state that we had set as goals. So, after succeeding, we just sort of let the organization go dormant, and stopped publishing our newsletter, which had gone out monthly to 7,000 people, and let the web site go. FORTUNATELY, no antigun group managed to work in and take it over. But grassroots organizations often have a fairly short life, especially if they accomplish their goals.

SC delivers verdict on some document requests made years ago. I am glad the SC got to this, but wonder why they could not get to a really big issue. That being a coup against the POTUS. That would have seemed to warrant their attention.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi invited Joe Biden to address a joint session of Congress on April 28.New Presidents typically make their first address to Congress shortly after Inauguration Day, but Joe Biden is very feeble.Biden barely made it through a scripted solo press conference a couple weeks ago. “Nearly 100 days ago, when you took the oath of office, you pledged in a spirit of great hope that ‘Help Is On The Way.’ Now, because of your historic and transformative leadership, Help Is Here!” Pelosi wrote in an invitation to Biden.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo once compared himself to Sonny Corleone from The Godfather and bragged about his oral sex skills, according to a damning profile published in The New York Times on Tuesday. The New York politician, 63, has fallen from grace amid recent accusations of sexual harassment and a cover-up of COVID nursing home deaths, but the new profile features interviews with insiders who say Cuomo's troubling behavior goes much further back. Sources quoted in the piece allege that the Governor has made transphobic and sexually inappropriate comments - with some alarming remarks made more than 15 years ago.

After reports surfaced that John Hinckley, Jr., who attempted to assassinate President Ronald Reagan in 1981, might receive a full release, Reagan biographer Craig Shirley ripped the idea.Shirley stated: John Hinckley is not a well man. His release from his hospital a few years ago was a mistake and a full pardon would be an atrocity. This is a man who nearly killed a sitting president because of his obsession with a movie star. It may have been 40 years but he still should be monitored. Experts can say what they want, but there’s no guarantee this man would not blow again.

Poll of the week: A new Reuters/Ipsos poll finds that 55% of Republicans falsely believe Joe Biden's victory in the 2020 presidential election was the result of illegal voting or rigging. Additionally, 60% of Republicans incorrectly agree that the election was stolen from Republican Donald Trump. These polls are the latest to indicate that Republicans mistakenly think that the 2020 election wasn't legitimate, when it clearly was. What's the point: Republicans have been pushing legislation at the state level to make voting at least somewhat more difficult than it was for the 2020 election. This has come in the wake of polls showing many Republicans doubt the election result. It is unclear

The NCAA reaffirmed its decision to refuse to hold college championships in states where laws “discriminate” against male athletes who identify as female.

The statement comes after several states have passed laws preventing biological males from competing in girls’ athletics.

The only way they can allow this is if they ignore the biology in favor of being fashionable. In truth, the NCAA isn’t doing anything differently than
