Politics in the News

Whether you are a libertarian, conservative, NRA member or simply a citizen concerned with today's political climate, you will find news items of interest and relevance on Reliable Answers "Politics in the News."

What message are our legislators sending to voters, when they publicly admit they haven't done their job? How many bills are passed each year that policymakers haven't even bothered to read? This is disgraceful. This is called dereliction of duties and we must demand a stop to this practice.

Cleaning up the Fukushima nuclear plant -- a task predicted to cost 86 times the amount earmarked for decommissioning Japan's first commercial reactor -- is the mother of all salvage jobs.

Safely dismantling the Japanese power plant, wrecked by the 2011 earthquake and tsunami, will cost about 8 trillion yen ($68 billion), the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry said Dec. 9, quadrupling the previous estimate. While a contract to help clean up the facility would be a windfall for any firm with specialized technology, the lion's share of the work has gone to local companies that designed and built most of Japan's atomic infrastructure.

Philip L. Browning, the director of Los Angeles County's child protective services agency and a veteran of county government, announced Wednesday that he is retiring early next year.

Browning, 70, said he recently came to the decision to retire and noted that he is the second-longest serving director for the Department of Children and Family Services. On a trip to Cuba last month with friends, he said he realized that he was the sole person in the group still in the workforce.

Before the bruising workplace conditions for white collar employees at Amazon became front page news in the New York Times last weekend, what were Amazon's workers saying about their experiences at the Seattle online retailing behemoth?

First a recap of the last few days: Times reporters David Streitfeld and Jodi Kantor wrote in a 7,000-word feature that they had interviewed 100 current and former Amazon employees, most of whom described an intense, often cutthroat workplace where senior managers encourage their reports to attack one another's ideas in meetings. An internal phone directory includes instructions on how to send secret notes about colleagues.

Melting in the Arctic is an example of climate changes that, if not stopped and reversed, could become drivers of climate change in their own right.

A number of the tipping points relate to shrinking areas of ice, both on sea and on land. As you might expect, sea ice and land ice are both highly reflective, acting like mirrors reflecting much of the sun's energy back into space. When ice cover is reduced, that energy is instead absorbed as heat, leading to a rise in temperatures. This, in turn, triggers further melting and additional temperature rises.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) is clarifying language on background check form 4473 to let would-be gun buyers know that even "legalized" marijuana use bars them from purchasing a firearm.

The clarification comes in light of "the conflict between Colorado law and federal law," which results from the dichotomy of marijuana being legal at the state level but federally unlawful.

He successfully requested an increase in such appropriations for fiscal year 2016.

CONSPIRACY theorists claim two odd cloud sightings are proof the government is secretly still carrying out high-tech weather experiments which officially ceased more than a year ago.

UFO shaped clouds seen over Texas and a strange light seen darting above Indiana have sparked claims the controversial High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) was being restarted. Others believe the two incidents in America could even be down to so-called "cloaked UFOs" when flying saucers are supposedly concealed among clouds.

Millions read the news today, the pedophile ring "busted" or the earlier article about how the FBI actually ran it for several weeks, expanding it, drawing in tens of thousands.

When Veterans Today tied the murder of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Scalia to a White House blackmail plot and a strange tale involving the Keshe Foundation, it became clear that the highest and most powerful in Europe, the US and around the world, were tied together in a web of ritual child abuse on a massive scale.
