A conservative American attorney who has previously taken cases to the United State Supreme Court and won says he plans on pursuing a fight against a new federal tax law expected to go into effect later this year.The Washington Times reported on Monday this week that lawyer Jim Bopp is putting in motion a plan to challenge the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act, or FATCA, which once enacted on July 1 will require foreign banks and other financial institutions to report to the US government information about accounts registered to Americans worth more than $50,000.Earlier this month, the IRS said it will implement the law throughout a grace period starting in July and stretching through 2015.

In a Feb. 24 Oval Office meeting, two of President Obama’s top climate advisers presented these sharply-contrasting images of California’s snowpack on Jan. 13, 2013 (left) and a year later (right), as a way to underscore how global warming is changing conditions on the ground in the United States.

The satellite images viewed by President Obama before a meeting with eight Western governors were stark, showing how snowpack in California’s mountainshad shrunk by 86 percent in a single year.

From Truth Revolt, Caleb Howe reporting, we learn [unfortunately]:

Hillary Clinton is attending the Mental Health and Addiction Conference in Washington today, an event from the National Council for Behavioral Health. Answering a question about her “guilty pleasure,” the former First Lady and expectant grandmother reportedly had this rather unexpected response.
