EDITORIAL: NOAA goes into global hiding

Climate change agitators love to say the science is settled in their favor, that researchers have irrefutably proved industrial carbon emissions are causing global temperatures to rise to such an extent that irreversible environmental damage already is under way.

Clinton should support Employee Rights Act

At a pit stop in Iowa a couple weekends ago, Hillary Clinton spoke out on campaign finance reform, "We can't let Republicans keep rigging our elections with secret, unaccountable, dark money."
