    Talk about angry…I am angry! I was going to cover the hearing today March 28, 2017 on Capitol Hill of the House Intelligence Committee classified hearing of FBI Director James Comey and NSA Director Rogers. HOWEVER, they sent message they would not be available today. WOW, that is outrageous! They were to be questioned about the information Rep. (R-C) Devin Nunes has discovered concerning the revelation that the Trump Transition Team has been incidentally surveilled in November and December of 2016 and January of 2017. Names of US citizens were unmasked and widely disseminated throughout the network. The unmasking of...

    Days before U.S. Capitol Police told House members that three Pakistani brothers who ran their computer networks may have stolen congressional data, their stepmother called Fairfax County, Virginia police to say the Democratic staffers were keeping her from her husband’s deathbed. A relative described her situation as being held in captivity for months while the brothers schemed to take their father’s life insurance and other assets. The brothers — who as IT professionals for Congress could read House members’ emails — allegedly used wiretapping devices on their own stepmother and threatened to abduct loved ones in Pakistan if she didn’t...

    A controversial painting depicting police officers as pigs has been permanently removed from the Capitol complex. The office of Rep. Dave Reichert, R-Wash., — a former sheriff who officially appealed to the Architect of the Capitol that the painting be removed — confirmed to the Washington Examiner that it was taken down for good on Tuesday. The painting, done by a black Missouri teenager, was one of hundreds of winners of the Congressional Art Competition. Rep. William Lacy Clay, D-Mo., hung it in the tunnel leading from the Cannon building to the Capitol complex.

    While professional athletes like second-string NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick engage in immature “protests” over some perceived peeve with our country’s criminal justice system, Republicans in Congress are diligently working to meaningfully improve America’s justice system.  Whether they succeed in their historic effort, however, remains up in the air and its future may very well be decided this week. Currently, three bills pending in the U.S. House – the Sentencing Reform Act, the Recidivism Risk Reduction Act, and the Criminal Code Improvement Act -- remain backed by bipartisan coalitions both inside and outside the government. As anyone who has maintained even...

    If Black Lives Matter, then why have entrenched members of the Congressional Black Caucus spent more time enriching themselves than taking care of their neglected constituents? Too many social justice protesters are busy throwing shade, rocks, bottles, concrete blocks and vicious death threats at police officers of all colors trying to keep the peace. Instead of moaning about "#WhitePrivilege," I invite radical racial identity warriors to join me in taking on the black political elites selling out their people.

    Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul's (R-TX) SAFE Act asked that the director of the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security and the director of national intelligence confirm that refugees from Syria and Iraq pose no threat to the country. Senate Democrats apparently thought that those terms were too radical and have blocked the common sense measure.While the SAFE Act seemed to scream bipartisanship, it did not gain enough votes during a procedural vote Wednesday. Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid dismissed the legislation as nothing more than a "divisive platform" modeled after Donald Trump's controversial rhetoric. An infuriated Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)...

    Criminals from nearby Maryland are flocking to Capitol Hill to rob people they see as easy targets, according to the neighborhood's top cop. First District Commander Jeff Brown told a group of neighborhood representatives Tuesday night that of the 24 people arrested for robbery in the last six months, just one criminal came from the District of Columbia.

    Sarah Pitluck used to walk her dogs before dawn, among the early risers exercising on Capitol Hill. She now waits until first light, and for the streets to be busier. It is just one way the young man who robbed her, ripping the smartphone from her hand and scratching her neck, has changed her daily routine — and her life. Ever since the Oct. 13 robbery just two blocks from her home, the pharmaceutical executive goes to work later and comes home before it gets dark. Lost time at her office is made up at home, on the phone with...

    At the House Judiciary Committee’s second hearing into the suspicious practices of Planned Parenthood, one former employee made some very serious accusations about the organization that claims to serve women’s health. Sue Thayer, a former Planned Parenthood abortion clinic manager, shared a testimony that proved the organization often considers money a higher priority than patients’ wellbeing: “No business, certainly no healthcare clinic, should view a woman’s body as a profit center, yet that is exactly what Planned Parenthood does,” Thayer said. She had personal anecdotes to prove it: One of the first times that I saw the truth about Planned Parenthood was...
  • 187 House Members Vote for Baby Homicide

    On Friday the House voted 241-187 to defund Planned Parenthood, and shortly after we posted this news on our Facebook page a man named Domingo commented: “How appropriate: 187 voted against defunding. 187 is the police code for homicide.” This is beyond ironic. Let’s remember that this was not a vote to overturn Roe v. Wade and to ban abortion on demand. This was not even a vote to ban late term abortions or, more extreme still, a vote to guarantee medical care for babies that survived abortion attempts. This was as basic as it comes: a bill to defund...

    The US Congress will return to Capitol Hill this week after the August recess and Labor Day holiday. They will immediately have to take up a monumental foreign policy issue that will present immense challenges for the free world: The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), also known as the Iranian nuclear deal. Last week, U.S. Senator from Maryland Barbara Mikulski became the coveted 34th vote that sealed President Obama’s veto. Due to the U.S. Senate not treating the JCPOA as a treaty - as the Constitution outlines - President Obama only needed to attain one third in order to...

    SEATTLE--“They’ve taken an area that was formerly a home for gay people, for queer people, for artists,” says John Criscitello while showing me around Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood, “and they’ve turned it into a destination drinking spot.” Criscitello, an artist who lives and works on Capitol Hill, is 48 years old but looks a decade younger. He’s tall and muscled, with tattoos covering most of his skin and blue eyes that stand out against the gloomy Seattle sky. He hasn’t been in the city long — he moved from New York just four years ago — but in that short...

    Vice President Joe Biden will be on Capitol Hill today meeting with lawmakers in an effort to sell President Obama's nuclear deal with Iran, which was reached yesterday. As the terms of the deal become known, the details get increasingly alarming. It's going to be a tough sell. Throughout the course of the nuclear negotiations with Iran, the world's largest state-sponsor of terror, lawmakers on both sides of the political aisle have remained skeptical about the terms of a deal with the rogue regime. In fact, one of the President's biggest critics on the Iran issue has been Democrat Senator...

    ATLANTA -- The late soul singer James Brown used to call himself the hardest-working man in showbiz. Now another Georgian, a U.S. senator, is proving to be the hardest-working man in his line of work. Many Americans likely don't know the name Johnny Isakson. He's not the type to ever push his name into the limelight. But insiders on Capitol Hill know him, and it's no secret that Georgia's senior senator is everyone's "go-to" person when it comes to producing concrete results and to promoting the conservative agenda in a businesslike and respectable manner. Isakson, who was sworn into office...

    The green energy barons have had a good run in the Age of Obama, but Capitol Hill conservatives are mounting their first serious challenge to these charlatans in the new Congress with the PTC Elimination Act filed by Rep. Kenny E. Marchant (R.-Texas). “If we want to build a healthier American economy, Congress must get rid of the dead weight in the tax code that is limiting our nation’s potential. That’s why I have introduced legislation to eliminate the production tax credit,” Marchant said in his April 22 statement. “Since its creation in 1992, the PTC has ballooned from a...
