Under cap and trade the federal government gives companies a limit to the emissions they are allowed, which is their “cap.” If they go beyond, they must enter into “carbon trading” by buying “carbon offsets.”
This is viewed by liberal Democrats in Washington as a way to generate additional revenue for their insatiable appetite for spending. The description ‘tax and spend liberal’ is well earned, especially in the last six years.

The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has thrived and mutated during the ongoing civil war in Syria and Iraq.

In late March of this year, President Obama stayed in Brussels, Belgium for about 24 hours on a weeklong trip through Europe.
Lodging at The Hotel in Brussels cost $1.5 million, as we reported in April, including rooms for the president and his entourage, as well as for the advance team in the weeks preceding the visit.
Less than two and a half months later, President Obama returned to Brussels again for about 24 hours for a G-7 meeting in early June, once again stayed at The Hotel, and again incurred a cost of $1.5 million. This time, the documents cited a need for "399 Lodging Rooms, office rooms, and conference rooms from 5/22/2014 – 6/6/2014".
