Biden’s boating proposal would be ‘greatest regulatory overreach’ of its kind, critics warn
The far-reaching regulation would restrict speed to 10 knots or 11.5 miles per hour for all boats over 35 feet — for up to seven months out of the year and up to 100 miles out at sea for most of the East Coast.
“The port will be closed any day it’s rough [or] windy. [And] not just this port. All the ports on the East Coast,” he said.
He pointed out there has never been a confirmed whale strike in a federal channel. “This is the government just getting involved where they don’t need to be,” he said.

DON’T THE PEURTO RICANS HAVE PRETTY GOOD AS A TERRITORY BUT NOT AS A STATE?
“We have an opportunity here to deal with the colonial legacy — a legacy that should not be part of the governance of this nation of ours — and the U.S. citizens of Puerto Rico deserve to have the same democratic principles that we believe in and swear to,” the bill’s sponsor, Democrat Raul Grijalva of Arizona, said in July.

Donald Trump Aims to Regroup After Rocky First Month of 2024 Campaign
ARE MORE REPUBLICANS MOVING INTO THE ‘WAIT AND SEE’ CATAGORY?
DOES THE MEDIA REORGANIZING IE. CNN, MAKE THINGS EASIER FOR TRUMP OR IS IT STILL A HIT SQUAD?
WHO ELSE IS MOVING IN TO RUN?
The former president dined with antisemites, said provisions of the Constitution should be terminated to overturn the 2020 election and suffered several courtroom defeats. A new Wall Street Journal poll showed him losing by double digits in a hypothetical primary contest against Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.
“Three months ago I would have said Trump would win the nomination. Now I don’t know,” said Rich Schwarm, a former chairman of the GOP in Iowa, which is scheduled to hold the party’s first 2024 nominating contest. “A lot of Republicans are in a wait and see mode.”
EL PASO, Texas—As federal immigration authorities continue to release migrants by the thousands, El Paso officials and local charities are near a breaking point in the sprawling border city.
Large groups of migrants, including a large contingent of Nicaraguans who crossed the border on Sunday, have been streaming across the Rio Grande in recent days.
