Maxine Waters, D-Calif., called for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to be fired after a CNN report came out Wednesday that he failed to disclose meetings with Russian officials when he applied for his security clearance.

    Top congressional Democrats officially introduced legislation Thursday to raise the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2024, up from its current level of $7.25. The move marks a stark policy change for the party, which was promoting an increase to just $10.50 as recently as 2015. "What we are here today to say is that a living wage is $15... If you are working 40 or 50 hours a week, you should not be living in poverty," said Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. He noted it had been almost a decade since the last time Congress had raised the...

    05/24/2017 1:49:36 PM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 57 replies
    Tuesday Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said President Donald Trump’s budget was dead on arrival. In a statement, McCain said, “President Trump’s $603 billion defense budget request is inadequate to the challenges we face, illegal under current law, and part of an overall budget proposal that is dead on arrival in Congress.” McCain was asked by MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt, “Can I ask you about president’s budget? Is it dead on arrival?” He replied, “Yes. and the commitment to rebuilding the military cannot be fulfilled with this level of spending. It is $30 billion too short.”
  • ‘Almost speechless’ McCain, Flake are go-to anti-Trump Republicans in NAFTA, Comey, Russia fights

    05/22/2017 10:56:56 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 34 replies
    The Arizona pair — especially McCain — has continued to be top Republicans critics of Trump in the White House’s current battles over the firing of FBI Director Jim Comey and ties with Russia. Flake and McCain are top Republican backers of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and other free trade deals. Trump is reworking NAFTA with Mexico and Canada. Those are Arizona’s top two trading partners. McCain told Fox News Sunday he’s “almost speechless” over Trump reportedly calling Comey a “nut job” to Russia’s foreign minister and ambassador. McCain and U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., are also...
  • Impeachment: Delusional Dems Don't Have a Case

    05/19/2017 10:26:13 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 8 replies
    If you’re like most Americans who work hard all day, raise your children, pay your taxes, and follow the law, you’re probably troubled by the evening news reports of a constitutional crisis over something President Donald Trump told former FBI Director James Comey. Sounds pretty ominous, doesn’t it? Let’s back up a little bit here and put this in perspective. The Constitution stipulates that a president can be removed from office for “treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.” Our Founding Fathers knew that politics is a complex and nasty affair, but they entrusted future elected leaders to bring...
  • McCain: Trump scandals reaching 'Watergate size and scale'

    05/19/2017 10:07:36 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 64 replies
    Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) reportedly said Tuesday that scandals within President Trump's administration are reaching a "Watergate size and scale." McCain made the statement at an International Republican Institute dinner on Tuesday night. Multiple reporters said that during a speech at the event, McCain compared recent reports surrounding Trump's administration to Watergate, which led to the resignation of President Richard Nixon. McCain's statement came just hours after a bombshell report that Trump asked then-FBI Director James Comey in February to stop his investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn. Trump has faced major fallout over the last week following...
  • Pelosi threatens to force vote on outside Russia probe

    05/12/2017 12:33:38 PM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 31 replies
    House Democrats are eyeing plans to force a vote on the creation of an independent panel to investigate President Trump’s ties to Russia following the dismissal of FBI Director James Comey this week. Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Wednesday urged GOP leaders to bring the legislation to the floor next week when Congress returns to Washington following a recess. If they decline, as expected, Democrats will try to force a vote with a discharge petition. “Speaker [Paul] Ryan [R-Wis.] must call up this legislation immediately upon our return next week,” Pelosi wrote Wednesday in a letter to the members...
  • Tucker to Dem Rep: 'Totally Irresponsible' to Link Comey Firing & Russia Investigation

    05/11/2017 9:10:12 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 18 replies
    Democrat lawmakers have strongly criticized President Trump for firing FBI Director James Comey, likening it to Watergate and calling for a special prosecutor to take over the investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the presidential election. Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-NY) joined Tucker Carlson tonight to discuss how Democrats have reacted to Comey's firing. Tucker said many Democrats - like Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren - may claim to know that Comey was fired because Trump was worried about the Russia investigation, but they don't actually know that. "Why are you saying crap like that that...
  • Sean Spicer could be out after debacle defending Trump

    Embattled White House spokesman Sean Spicer may be getting less face time on TV following a shipwreck of a performance defending President Trump’s decision to fire the FBI chief, a new report said Wednesday. A CNN reporter, citing sources, said high level administration officials — including Trump himself — were evaluating whether to replace Spicer with his backup, Sarah Huckabee Sanders. “WH sources: Highest levels incl. POTUS evaluating Sanders subbing for Spicer in briefing room. Last night an ‘embarrassment.. disaster,’ reporter Jim Acosta tweeted. Sanders handled Wednesday’s press briefing with aplomb, and will conduct briefings through the end of the...
  • Former Richard Nixon counsel says Trump’s Comey firing is like ‘accelerated’ Watergate

    05/10/2017 12:23:14 PM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 38 replies
    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...

    I am loving libs going crazy over Trumps firing of Comey. Now Trump is Nixon comparing him to the Saturday night massacre in 1973. I hope they run with the crap for months and bury themselves even more in 2018. Trumps timing could not have been better with the move and the letter from Rosenstein is a knock out blow.
  • McCain Blasts Tillerson For Saying Policy Overrides Values On Foreign Policy

    Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., a frequent critic of the Trump administration, blasted Secretary of State Rex Tillerson for suggesting that America’s foreign policy must stray from its core values at times. Tillerson said it was important to “understand the difference between policy and values,” in an address to State Department employees Wednesday. He said that that “America First” means that U.S. national security and economic interests will sometimes override the demand for other countries to adhere to American values. “If we condition too heavily that others must adopt this value that we’ve come to over a long history of our...

  • Nancy Pelosi Rejects Single Payer Being Added to Democratic Party Platform

    05/05/2017 7:47:05 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 8 replies
    Politico reported on May 3 that House Democrats want Republicans to pass an Obamacare repeal bill in the House, citing that the vote could be used against Republicans in the 2018 midterm elections. Democrats affirmed this report by chanting “hey hey hey goodbye” to Republicans after Obamacare repeal marginally passed in the House by a vote of 217 to 213 on May 4. This strategy is terrible for a variety of reasons. First and foremost, it reveals that the Democratic Party is willing to sell out constituents just to receive some attack fodder. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi recently reaffirmed...

  • McCain calls Trump’s comments about dictators ‘disturbing’

    Sen. John McCain called President Trump’s praise of dictators around the world “disturbing” on Tuesday. “It’s very distributing. It’s disturbing because we’re proud Republicans, and we stand for human rights,” Mr. McCain told MSNBC. The Arizona Republican said he is still supportive of Mr. Trump’s military and foreign policy decisions and has confidence in the team of national security advisers, despite the president’s recent comments. “When the president does his job such as the cruise missile strike, such as selecting a national security team that is the strongest that I’ve seen, such as many of the actual actions he has...
  • Donald Trump would be ‘honored’ to meet Kim Jong Un

    President Trump said he would “be honored” to meet with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un amid heightened tensions over the rogue regime’s nuclear weapons program, a new report said Monday. “If it would be appropriate for me to meet with him, I would absolutely, I would be honored to do it,” Trump said in an interview with Bloomberg News. “If it’s under the, again, under the right circumstances. But I would do that.” North Korea has become the most urgent national security threat and foreign policy issue facing Trump as his first 100 days in office passed. Kim’s regime...
  • Lawyers sue Times, CNN, Fox News for racial discrimination

    Three of the nation’s largest media organizations are being sued — two by the same lawyer — for ­racial discrimination. A half-dozen people have filed suits against the New York Times and Fox News, while as many as 175 current and former employees have contacted lawyers about joining a class-action suit against CNN. The Times plaintiffs claim in a suit filed last year by New York lawyer Douglas Wigdor that “the Gray Lady” prefers to hire white employees to help target a white audience. “Unbeknownst to the world at large, not only does the Times have an ideal customer (young,...
  • ‘I Think She Is an Idiot’: Fox’s Beckel Clashes With Co-Hosts Over ‘Irrelevant’ Ann Coulter

    Days after the University of California – Berkeley first announced that they were canceling a speech by conservative provocateur Ann Coulter, along with Coulter rejecting their offer of a new date and planning to show up as originally scheduled, the issue is still a big topic on cable news. On this evening’s broadcast of Fox News’ The Five, the four conservative co-hosts ended up taking turns tearing into the college, students, liberals, and the Democratic Party for blocking Coulter’s free speech. Greg Gutfeld, for example, decried it as “sharia law for snowflakes.” Eventually, the one panelist who is supposed to...
  • McCain wants a European-style US military buildup in Asia

    Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., on Tuesday called for the Trump administration to launch a new U.S. military deterrence initiative in the Asia-Pacific region, similar to what is already being done in Europe, as a counterweight to China. The administration could chart a new course with an initiative that includes new military funding to realign U.S. forces in the region, increase combat power, improve bases and add more exercises, McCain said during a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing. "I believe there is strong merit for an Asia-Pacific stability initiative which is similar to the European deterrence initiative we've pursued over the...
