    I remember when President Obama turned up the “race” card with Skip Gates, Trayvon Martin, and the riots in Ferguson Missouri. I cannot forget his role as agitator in chief and how he never missed an opportunity to pick the scabs of the racial divide. In my opinion, his actions were so un-presidential. I remember when President Obama forced socialized medicine down the throats of unsuspecting citizens with his famous double-headed lie “if you like you Dr. you can keep your Dr. and if you like your plan you can keep your plan.” That didn’t seem very presidential to me....
  • Collins: Bannon's rhetoric about McConnell 'not helpful'

    The Hill ^ | October 15th, 2017 | By Mallory Shelbourne
    Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) said Sunday that former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon's rhetoric about Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is “not helpful.” “This is not helpful or appropriate at all. Obviously Mr. Bannon has the right to support whomever he wants to support,” Collins told ABC’s “This Week.” “But I think his rhetoric is exactly what the American people are tired of. They don’t want this hyperpartisanship. They want us to work together and they want us to get things done.” Bannon has vowed to challenge the Republican establishment in the 2018 midterms and put up primary...

    Speaker of the House Paul Ryan advised Republicans to run away from candidate Donald Trump before the election in order to save themselves and hold a future-President Hillary Clinton accountable, Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas revealed in an exclusive video interview with The Daily Caller New Foundation. “Are you crazy? We haven’t held anyone accountable. You haven’t even let us hold the IRS commissioner accountable [for using government power to harm President Obama’s political adversaries],” an astonished Gohmert said to the speaker on a call. Gohmert told TheDCNF he speaks so courageously because he wants the party to succeed...
  • Former Richard Nixon counsel says Trump’s Comey firing is like ‘accelerated’ Watergate

    President Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey looks like Watergate in fast-forward, says the Richard Nixon staffer who helped expose that scandal. “The White House just totally botched this,” John Dean, Nixon’s White House Counsel, told the Daily News Wednesday morning. “If this was not a strong-arm play to slow down the investigation, they certainly did make it look like one.” Dean described the whole situation as “Nixonian,” but said there was notable differences between this and Watergate. In particular, he noted, the pace of Trump’s drama seems “accelerated.” Even the Richard Nixon Presidential Library wanted to separate the...

    House Speaker Paul Ryan (R., Wis.) said on Sunday that House Republicans are on a "rescue mission" for health care. Ryan spoke with ABC's George Stephanopoulos about the health care legislation passed this week by the House and now before the Senate overhauling major aspects of Obamacare. "So this is a rescue mission to make sure that we can achieve the goals we all want, which is getting the cost of coverage down and making sure that everyone has access to affordable health care, especially and including people with pre-existing conditions," Ryan said. "That is what our bill does." Stephanopoulos...

    In a Senate floor speech today, Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham announced that they are offering an amendment to strip a key element of the recently passed Justice Against Sponsors of Terror Act (JASTA) that clarifies U.S. law for civil claims against foreign governments for funding terrorism. JASTA was passed in the Senate in May with no objections, and passed the House of Representatives unanimously in September. President Obama promptly vetoed the bill. The Senate and House successfully voted to override the veto and the bill became law. McCain and Graham specifically said they want to strip the "discretionary...

    Kellyanne Conway made one thing very clear in her Sunday interview with “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd: She’s not a fan of Mitt Romney. Like, at all. Here’s how she responded to Todd’s question about her feelings about the 2012 Republican presidential nominee: People feel betrayed to think that Governor Romney, who went out of his way to question the character and the intellect and the integrity of Donald Trump, now our president-elect, would be given the most significant Cabinet post of all, secretary of state. And that is a decision that only one man can make, President-elect Donald...

    An enthusiastic House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) told a news conference on Wednesday, “Donald Trump pulled off an amazing political feat, and he deserves tremendous credit for that. It helped us keep our majorities, but it also showed the country that people don’t like the direction we were going. We need to change direction.“And what I’m excited about is, we in Congress, along with our nominee who is now the president-elect, offered a very specific and clear and coherent agenda on which direction we should take the country, and that is now the direction we are going to go. And...

    Re: MarkLevin ^ | November 1, 2016 | Jim Robinson
    Have been listening to Mark Levin for the last hour or so. Am happy to report that our old friend Mark appears to no longer be a NeverTrumper. It appears that he now believes Trump is a lot more of a constitutional conservative than McCain or Romney (well, duh). It seems Mark's biggest disagreement with Trump now is on free trade. Laments that no one sides with Reagan's trade policies anymore. (Hmmmmm.... I don't recall Reagan being all that much of a "free trader," thought he was very much for the working man, but that's just me). At any rate,...

    Band forwarded the email to Cheryl Mills, another longtime Clinton aide, and John Podesta, now Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager whose email account is the one that was hacked. Band said he receives emails such as this one from Chelsea regularly before calling her a backstabber, adding that the “apple doesn’t fall far.” “She sends me one of these types of emails every few days/week. As they say, the apple doesn’t fall far. A kiss on the cheek while she is sticking a knife in the back, and front,” he wrote. This is not the first time that Band was found...

    Uh-Oh! Ted should have never made a spectacle of himself at the RNC, and maybe kept his promise to support the nominee because now, it seems, it has come back to bite him. The once extremely popular senator is no more than the lesser of the evils in his home state, in his senate race. At least that’s what the results of the latest in state poll show. CBS/DFW reports that Texans are smarting a bit over the recent Cruz behavior and they’re letting him know it. Sen. Ted Cruz won the Republican presidential primary in Texas with nearly 44...

    As a member of the controversial "Gang of Eight" working up comprehensive immigration reform three years ago, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio blocked bipartisan efforts to reform the worker visa program to make sure American workers get first dibs on jobs, according to a top Senate Democrat. At a hearing on H-1B worker visas Thursday, Sen. Richard Durbin of Illinois said that "a junior senator from Florida" fought to kill visa changes in the legislation that would have limited the ability of firms to replace American workers with cheaper foreign labor. "In 2013, I was part of the Gang of Eight....

    Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump says he's "100 percent" on board with the remaining field of candidates in support of moving the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem if elected president in the fall of 2016. In an interview with The Brody File, published on Tuesday, Trump said "I am for that one hundred percent. We are for that one- hundred percent" when told by host David Brody that pledging to move the embassy to Jerusalem is a "tier-A issue for Evangelicals as it relates to support for Israel." Trump is currently tied for first place with Senator Ted...

The Israeli Prime Minister released a statement saying he will still meet with the Republican Presidential candidate for previously scheduled talks later this month but does not “endorse his views”. “Prime Minister Netanyahu rejects Donald Trump's recent remarks about Muslims,” the statement said.
