Instead of allowing environmental groups with hundreds of millions of dollars in assets to file an endless chain of lawsuits at taxpayer expense, Congress should move decisively to end abusive practices that subtract from local conservation efforts, according to recent testimony delivered before House committees.

Kevin Mooney is an investigative journalist and reporter in Washington D.C. He has written for the the Washington Times, the American Spectator, Washington Examiner, CNSNews.com, the Capital Research Center and blogs for NetRightDaily.com and NewsBusters. He has also made several appearances on Fox News to discuss pending legislation and public policy disputes.
Kevin broke several news stories concerning border security policies, drug cartel activity and potential acts of terrorism. After obtaining documents from an internal audit of Department of Homeland Security (DHS), he found that almost half of the illegal aliens that had found their way into the U.S. in recent years were from terrorist-sponsoring or “special interest” nations.
In his subsequent reporting, Kevin also revealed evidence that suggests well-funded individuals from the Middle-East had entered into the U.S. from Mexico, after blending into the culture and becoming proficient in Spanish. Texas sheriffs and public officials came forward with documents that showed a growing nexus between illegal immigration, human trafficking, drug trafficking and potential terror networks.
Kevin also has written extensively on the environmental movement, its impact on economic activity and new scientific data that questions the premise of man-made global warming. In his reporting Kevin has also called attention to a new legal standard known as the “pre-cautionary principle” green activists are now using in an effort to impose European-style regulations on the U.S.
Most recently, Kevin has been involved in covering domestic policy initiatives on Capitol Hill favored by organized labor and other special interest reports. He also appeared on the “Glenn Beck Program” several times to discuss the connection between The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and the Association of Community Organizers for Reform Now (ACORN). Kevin was also the first to report on the $53 million in federal funding ACORN has received since 1994, and the $8 billion that has remained on the table, despite on-going investigations.
Prior to arriving in Washington D.C., Kevin worked as a reporter for the Trenton Times and Forbes Newspapers in New Jersey. He also held editorial positions with Dow Jones and Company and Bloomberg News in Princeton, N.J.
Kevin is a graduate of Rider University in Lawrenceville, N.J. and holds degrees in communications and political science. He also took part in a study abroad program at Hertford College in Oxford University as part of his graduate work for Regent University in Va., where he earned a degree in public policy.

Try to imagine what a GEICO-type commercial for contact lenses built around opening day of Major League Baseball might look and sound like.
When the conservative movement went in search of an articulate, unifying presidential contender, the kind of candidate who could persuade the public to embrace constitutional renewal in anticipation of the 2000 election cycle, National Review magazine offered up Associate Justice Antonin Scalia.
Democracy broke out in Richmond, Va. on Thursday November 6, 2014 much to the consternation of a well-funded, well-connected land trust known as the Piedmont Environmental Council. That was the day dozens of property rights activists from across Virginia and other parts of the country showed up in force to express support for an organic farmer who has accused the council of colluding and scheming with realtors and government officials in an effort to force her into selling a highly coveted parcel of land.
Contrary to what former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli and others have suggested, Governor Chris Christie should not step down as chairman of the Republican Governors Association (RGA).
As a condition of their employment, California school teachers must pay a portion of their union dues to support political activism that runs counter to their own personal convictions. That’s because the U.S. Supreme Court effectively carved out an exception to the First Amendment where labor law is concerned in a series of decisions that reach back to the mid-20th Century. That’s why classroom instructors like Harlan Elrich feel disadvantaged each Election Day. But this could all begin to change in just a few weeks if a pending legal complaint gains traction, as is widely expected.
Within conservative circles, the name ACORN remains synonymous with voter fraud and the misallocation of public funds for partisan political activities. But former insiders who played a critical role in exposing the organization’s many financial transgressions have worked under the name to champion the cause of whistleblowing. ACORN 8, which is named for the eight board members and whistleblowers who were blocked from investigating a multi-million dollar embezzlement scheme, has grown to include dozens of members across 15 states.

Louisiana Secretary of State Tom Schedler told The Daily Caller that the federal Motor Voter law was set up to “ensure controversy” and that the Obama administration is using it “to advance a political agenda.”
The United States hasn't seen a constitutional convention since 1787. But with Washington, D.C.’s political class continuing to borrow and spend, the state legislatures in North Dakota and Louisiana have passed resolutions calling for another one.
Across the country, private citizens and business owners are joining forces with Tea Party activists to push back against well-funded green pressure groups that work with government officials. Over the past few decades, the environmental movement has worked to undermine property rights, block entrepreneurial activity and expand regulatory control without a serious, concerted response, according to free-market advocates
Americans living in the most industrialized regions of the country have a special stake in the outcome of a California ballot initiative that would suspend implementation of that state’s global warming law until after unemployment drops, according to policy experts who favor a free market response to energy needs.
Arizona’s unheralded anti-quota initiative highlights Obama’s inconsistent stance on profiling and preferential policies
Despite the anti-discriminatory stipulations included as part of Arizona’s immigration enforcement law, President Obama has repeatedly joined with foreign leaders and ethnic pressure groups to condemn the statute as an affront to human rights that enables and encourages racial profiling.
