  • House Ethics Committee refuses questions on complaint against Adam Schiff, Jackie Speier

    The Washington Examiner ^ | 5/13/17 | Sarah Westwood
    Days after former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates confirmed the classified nature of months-old calls between Mike Flynn and Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak, the House Ethics Committee has remained silent on whether it will look into complaints against Democratic members who discussed the substance of those classified calls publicly. The committee's avoidance of the allegations against Democratic Reps. Adam Schiff and Jackie Speier, both members of the House Intelligence Committee, comes after it swiftly took up complaints against the Republican chairman of the Intelligence Committee, Rep. Devin Nunes, over a similar charge.
  • House Passes Bill to Defund Planned Parenthood Abortion Biz

    House Republicans voted today to approve a bill that would defund to Planned Parenthood abortion business. This was the second attempt to get enough votes on the reconciliation bill that would not only defund the nation’s biggest abortion corporation but also repeal major portions of Obamacare. The first attempt to pass the bill saw liberal Republicans oppose the repealing Obamacare portion and conservative Republicans not happy as well because it did not repeal Obamacare fully. Republican leaders reworked the legislation, called the American Health Care Act, and Republicans passed the measure today despite Democrat objections. The House voted 217-212 for...

    Started streaming 35 minutes ago LIVE STREAM: The F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, is expected to be grilled Wednesday by lawmakers in both parties who have sharply questioned his judgment on the investigations into both Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server and Russian meddling in the presidential election. Unlike the House Intelligence Committee hearing in March in which Mr. Comey took the extraordinary step of confirming the existence of the Russia investigation, Wednesday’s Senate Judiciary Committee proceeding is a more routine congressional oversight hearing — but notable because Mr. Comey has not publicly discussed his role in the...
  • Mulvaney: There are several hundred millions of dollars in the budget, for up-building border wall

    Live press briefing | 5/2/2017
    Mick Mulvaney, the budget director, is currently having a press conference. I was watching it, and learned for the first time, that there is several hundreds of millions of dollars in the budget, for ramping up fencing on the border (now) upgrading to a 20-foot structurally sound, actual border. This is the first I had heard of that. It seems the President is looking at playing much harder ball in September. It seems the 2017 budget was closed, as of the budget agreement. I am much, much happier than I was a couple of days ago. Good discussion Mr. Mulvaney,...
  • Media pretty excited Trump had 'no legislative achievements in first 100 days'

    Missing the point entirely. Just about every news story this past Friday mentioned it. It was the 100th day of Donald Trump’s presidency, and with the decision of House leaders not to hold a vote on the ObamaCare repeal/replace yet, the magic date passed without a major legislative achievement so far in the Trump presidency. It was an awfully big media narrative for an item of such utter irrelevance. I told you last Sunday to pack your patience, and you’re going to need it when you’re getting pelted with storylines like this.
  • UN warned Trump that ObamaCare repeal could violate international law

    The United Nations warned the Trump administration earlier this year that repealing ObamaCare without providing an adequate replacement would be a violation of multiple international laws, according to a new report. Though the Trump administration is likely to ignore the U.N. warning, The Washington Post reported the Office of the U.N. High Commission on Human Rights in Geneva sent an "urgent appeal" on Feb 2. The Post reported that the confidential, five-page memo cautioned that the repeal of the Affordable Care Act would put the U.S. “at odds with its international obligations.” The warning was sent to the State Department...

    President Donald Trump’s first one hundred days in office will end April 29. As such, former President Barack Obama’s current visit to Chicago offers him an opportunity to criticize his successor. But will he take it? On Sunday and at the invitation of Arne Duncan, Obama met with a group of Chicago’s Create Real Destiny Program, which provides services for at-risk youth. CRED was founded by the former Education Secretary. At 12:00 ET on Monday, Obama will speak to an invitation-only crowd of college students, organizers and activists at the University of Chicago, the former president’s old stomping grounds. Billed...

    IWB ^ | Mark Angelides
    As Britain’s Prime Minister, Theresa May, signs the “notification to leave” the EU, it is worth considering the driving factor behind the Brexit referendum. Almost all Western nations are having problems with migration and refugees. Governments flail their arms and give up almost any pretenses of trying to enforce proper immigration laws. The world has become porous (as was the plan), borders are next to useless (as was the plan), and democracies are crumbling under the weight (as was the plan). While it is important to not confuse causation with correlation, it is difficult not to wonder at the mass...

    "Shocking Video: Planned Parenthood Director Caught Admitting Babies Born Alive After Abortion are Killed" A shocking new undercover video exposes a Planned Parenthood medical director admitting that babies born alive after abortion are sometimes killed. The top Planned Parenthood official is caught on video essentially admitting that it “depends on who is in the room” as to whether or not a baby who is born alive after a failed abortion is taken to the hospital or left to die. The new undercover video shows DeShawn Taylor, previous Medical Director of Planned Parenthood of Arizona and longtime abortion practitioner at Planned...

    The internet will soon be a “safe space”, free from “hatred”, free from “Fake News”, free from “hurtful rhetoric” and of course, free from any views or opinions that do not fit the “progressive narrative”. Google and Facebook are looking to become public facilities (State operated), and with that will be the end of the World Wide Web as an open forum. That is not to say that the basic services will be any better or any worse, but as a place to challenge orthodoxy and “narrative”, it will be effectively dead. The reason behind this takeover is an attempt...

    Donald Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, is pushing her father and the new White House administration to take legislative action on the issue of human trafficking, according to Axios. On Thursday afternoon, Donald Trump held a listening session on the issue, to greater understand the problem of women and girls who are trafficked into America, and then sexually exploited for profit. However, the issue was fast-tracked onto the agenda by Ivanka Trump, alongside Dina Powell, the White House senior counselor for economic initiatives. According to a source close to Axios, “Ivanka recommended the meeting to the president and he immediately agreed,...

    First of all, I blame Paul Ryan for hindering President Trump’s most valiant efforts to truly help the American people. I am speaking of Trump’s policy changes on ObamaCare and tax cuts for the American people. These things would help the American people more than anything Trump could do. Matt Drudge took to Twitter to blast Congress for hanging the new president “out to dry” by failing to move on ObamaCare and other agenda items. Drudge included a photo of House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) in the tweets. Drudge tweeted: “Congress hanging The Donald out to dry. Making him do...

    On February 8, 2017, Matt Drudge tweeted, “No Obamacare repeal, tax cuts!” and “Republican party should be sued for fraud. NO discussion of tax cuts now.” Drudge was spot on. This week, Sen. Rand Paul (my former boss, it should be pointed out) stormed out of a meeting with Speaker of the House Paul Ryan when he heard talk of keeping Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion intact and creating tax credits. Paul worried these tax credits would be a Republican-created entitlement program. Unfortunately, the leadership and establishment in the Republican party is incompetent. When you compare the accomplishments of President Barack Obama...

The file contains comments made by a top level executive from the American Conservative Union (ACU) speaking terribly about well-known people who often speak at CPAC. But our plans changed this afternoon when conservative activist, Milo Yiannopoulos, had his invitation to speak at CPAC 2017 rescinded by the ACU. We’ve decided to release our audio file tomorrow morning at 12:00pm eastern standard time. Below are some of the hard hitting comments heard on the audio file.

    A 4-year-old with autism is back with her parents after she was saved from almost drowning in a creek. Officials say the little girl, Melody, had wandered away from home and accidentally fell into the creek. The mother told KDAF she had left for work, and her husband did not realize the little girl had left the home. "She went out on an adventure. She's likes to do that. She's got autism, and we just found out about it. She just likes to wander off and do her own thing sometimes," said Melody's mother. Thanks to the help of two...
