issued his injunction. The lawyers said they didn’t intend to mislead,
and they assumed the judge knew those applications were being
Then the Homeland Security Department announced it had
approved the 2,000 or so three-year applications even after the
injunction — a clear violation of the judge’s order, and raising
questions about the lawyers’ excuses for the first 100,000 botched
'Raising questions' my ass; they lied and ignored the order, and now they're trying to keep from being called to account for it.

warming skeptics have long charged that alarmists are over-hyping the
dangers of climate change. Now comes a new paper from two economists in
Singapore and Hong Kong that actually advocates exaggerating global warming fears to get countries on board international environmental agreements.
According to Kevin Glass of Townhall.com, the paper claims that the
urgency of climate change makes it OK to deceive the public about the
projected consequences of global warming. They don’t actually use the
word “lying,” but by calling for “informational manipulation and
exaggeration,” they certainly think the ends justify these very
questionable and over-heated means.”
