    Former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) said on Tuesday that he's bothered by the Republican National Committee's decision to its reinstate support for GOP Senate candidate and accused child molester Roy Moore, saying that Moore "deserves to lose." "I think he deserves to lose," Cantor said on CNN's New Day. "When I was in office as Majority Leader, I had the policy of zero tolerance for any of this kind of stuff."

    Critics of Republican U.S. Rep. Dave Brat and the House health care bill he voted for packed a raucous town hall meeting in his Virginia district Tuesday night, booing and shouting down the congressman from start to finish. Brat is the latest in a series of lawmakers across the country who have gotten an earful from constituents at town hall meetings since last week’s passage of the House health care bill that would repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. […] A former economics professor who defeated then-House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in a historic 2014 upset, Brat briefly discussed...

    Rep. Dave Brat said Friday the GOP can get the new health care bill done in a week. “It’s not really a new bill,” Mr. Brat, Virginia Republican and a member of the House Freedom Caucus, said on CNN’s “New Day.” “We’re still waiting on the official text.” Mr. Brat said that after the Republicans’ failed attempt at putting together a replacement plan for Obamacare last month, Vice President Mike Pence came together with House Republicans to work out the issues from the last bill. “Vice President Pence came over and met with all of us. He had a great...

    We’ve all heard the term “military brat” before. It pertains to those children who grew up in military families. “Brats” wear the name like a badge of honor, often because of the moves, stressors and cultural experiences that make them more resilient than their civilian counterparts.

    Rep. Dave Brat is my rep. Yesterday, he posted an article to his constituents on his Facebook page. There are a lot of rumors & "who shot John" accusations flying around, but here it is straight from a Freedom Caucus & Conservative mouth as to what happened. There are a lot of terrific comments in this article and it's well worth reading. Personally, Dave Brat speaks for me ...... it was a great day when Eric Cantor was deposed from his self-assumed throne & I am grateful every day for Dave Brat. So far he has acted in the best...

    Children might be small in stature, but let's be honest, they can be rather destructive when left to their own devices. Such is the case with a young Chinese boy, who single-handedly pushed over a giant fox figurine of Nick from Zootopia on Sunday at the LEGO Expo in Ningbo, China. It so happened that it was the first day of the exhibition and the display had been open to the public for no more than an hour when the incident occurred.

    CINCINNATI – A gorilla was killed after it dragged a 3-year-old boy that fell into its enclosure at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden Saturday, Zoo Director Thane Maynard said. The boy was hospitalized with injuries that were not life-threatening, police said. Police and EMTs were called to the zoo at about 4 p.m. for reports that a gorilla was "slamming the child into the wall." Maynard said the boy crawled through a barrier and landed in the moat. He was walking and splashing. Harambe, a 17-year-old male gorilla weighing more than 400 pounds, picked up the boy, Maynard said....

    she calls herself the “World’s Meanest Mom,” but a Minnesota mother said she has a reason for selling her daughter’s dream truck on Craigslist. Amy Adams said her daughter “decided that her grades don’t matter, that she can disrespect myself and her siblings on a daily basis and that she has the right to skip school and run away from home.” Adams added her daughter, who was just about to get her driver’s license, “was on her ‘one more chance and the truck was getting sold.’ And, she blew that ‘one more chance’ on Monday when she decided to skip...

    Just a few miles from his family home, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) felt the wrath of the tea party Saturday, when activists in his congressional district booed and heckled the second-most powerful House Republican. (SNIP) “When I sit here and I listen to Mr. Brat speak I hear the inaccuracies — my family’s here.” Cantor said. As he was interrupted by the raucous crowd, Cantor’s anger was evident: “That’s enough — we are a country of free speech, so decency’s also part of this.” (SNIP) “It is easy to sit in the rarified environs of academia, in the...

    I saw a woman leaving the YMCA recently with a baby strapped to her chest. She had a second, slightly larger baby in a stroller. And she had a tantrum-throwing three-year-old holding her hand. She was infested with small children. I couldn't help but stare... The three-year-old was trying to make a scene. I say "trying to make a scene" because he was waging war against his mother, and she was refusing to participate. With a steady gait and an even expression, she ignored him. It was the most spectacular moment in parenting I have ever seen. This woman, who...

    So far, I’ve received confirmations from several candidates, but have yet to receive a written response from Ryan. Congressman Ryan has noted he does not want to adbmit to preconditions. House Speaker’s race is not about the person. It is about the principles, and structural reforms so that the process serves the best interest of the American people. This is too important a decision to leave to a few people good old boys. For our party to re-unite, and get things done, our Speaker need be of the people. Communicating honestly with us would be a good start.

    LIKE so many others, I was stunned by Speaker John A. Boehner’s announcement on Friday that he would step down at the end of October. For nearly six years — first as Republican whip and then as majority leader — I met with John on a daily, sometimes hourly, basis as we worked to lead the House Republican Conference. (SNIP) We are in the midst of a campaign to elect the next president.

    Rep. Dave Brat (R-VA) gave his own Republican congressional leadership a failing grade for not going “all in” to solve the nation’s fiscal problems and for not fighting President Obama’s executive overreach. “I’d give them all F’s. Fail. We did not fight. We didn’t win. My district sent me up here to score some points,” Brat said Friday after C-SPAN Washington Journal host Peter Slen asked the Tea Party-backed freshman congressman what he thought about House Speaker John Boehner’s leadership over the past year. Brat noted the Republican-controlled Congress’ failure to defund Planned Parenthood in the wake of graphic undercover...

Dave Brat, R-Va., warned that Boehner’s, R-Ohio, future as the party leader could be jeopardized depending on how he handles both a continuing resolution funding the government and whether Planned Parenthood is permanently stripped of its federal funding.“I voted against the speaker last time, and so I think on this motion, it’ll come down to leadership’s actions with respect...
