    Senator Chuck Grassley ^ | March 31, 2017
    WASHINGTON – Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley is asking whether a suspected former Russian intelligence officer-turned U.S. lobbyist and the firm behind the unsubstantiated anti-Trump dossier should have registered as foreign agents for their efforts to bring down a U.S. law on behalf of the Kremlin. According to a complaint filed with the Justice Department, Fusion GPS, which was also involved in the creation of the unsubstantiated dossier alleging collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians, was involved in the pro-Russia campaign to kill the Global Magnitsky Act around the same time. In 2012, President Obama signed into...

    If patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel then it has become a all-inclusive resort for Obama appointees.This would have been the big story earlier in the week had the Washington Post not launched a feeding frenzy on Jeff Sessions’s tangential contacts with the Russian ambassador to the United States. From the New York Times in a story headlined Obama Administration Rushed to Preserve Intelligence of Russian Election Hacking. In the Obama administration’s last days, some White House officials scrambled to spread information about Russian efforts to undermine the presidential election — and about possible contacts between associates...

    John McCain, R-Ariz., and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., are set to release a bipartisan bill to increase sanctions on Russia over the country's interference in the U.S. presidential election. The Countering Russian Hostilities Act of 2017, whose chief sponsor is Democratic Sen. Ben Cardin of Maryland, will depute at an afternoon press conference, Politico reports. The bill is intended as a message that the GOP wishes to repudiate Russia for its hostile actions despite Republican president-elect Donald Trump has publicly questioned the country's involvement in the hack of the Democratic National Committee.

    The 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force, passed in the wake of the September 11 attacks on the United States, has allowed the President to conduct counterterrorism operations overseas. Long derided as overbroad (yet still used by President Obama to justify questionable foreign decisions) by opponents, two Democrats now want to repeal it. As the Associated Press reported: Sens. Ben Cardin of Maryland and Chris Murphy of Connecticut say Congress never intended to authorize a perpetual war when it passed the legislation more than a decade ago. They introduced a bill Friday and said the president and Congress should...

    A surge in global food prices has prompted fresh criticism of US subsidies for ethanol, which diverts massive amounts of corn from global food supplies for energy. Senators Tom Coburn, a Republican from Oklahoma, and Ben Cardin, a Maryland Democrat, introduced a measure last month to scrap the tax credit of 45 cents per gallon for ethanol in gasoline. "The ethanol tax credit is bad economic policy, bad energy policy and bad environmental policy. The $6 billion we waste every year on corporate welfare should instead stay in taxpayers' pockets where it can be used to spur innovation, stimulate growth...

    Obama open to newspaper bailout bill The president said he is "happy to look at" bills before Congress that would give struggling news organizations tax breaks if they were to restructure as nonprofit businesses. "I haven't seen detailed proposals yet, but I'll be happy to look at them," Obama told the editors of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and Toledo Blade in an interview. Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.) has introduced S. 673, the so-called "Newspaper Revitalization Act," that would give outlets tax deals if they were to restructure as 501(c)(3) corporations. That bill has so far attracted one cosponsor, Cardin's Maryland colleague...

    With the federal treasury facing insolvency what industry do we help next? Well lets see, how about the public relations arm of the Democratic party, the newspaper industry. That way when our Taxes go even higher they can tell us that it is a great idea. Today the President said that he would be happy to look at the Senate proposal allowing papers to restructure as non-profit organizations. Non-Profit may describe a newspaper's balance sheet, but it should not describe its tax status, unless of course, if Senator Benjamin Cardin( D-Md.) gets his way. The Senator introduced a bill on...

    Obama said he is "happy to look at" bills before Congress that would give struggling news organizations tax breaks if they were to restructure as nonprofit businesses. The bill being discussed is the Newspaper Revitalization Act introduced by Sen. Cardin (D-MD). Nonprofits can't endorse political candidates directly or indirectly, and may be constrained in taking too strong a line for or against government proposals.

    City police are investigating why on-duty marine and helicopter officers helped a Baltimore County state delegate propose to his girlfriend by pretending to raid a boat the couple were aboard, a department spokesman said Monday. Officers boarded the boat, owned by a friend of Del. Jon S. Cardin, on Aug. 7 in the Inner Harbor. As the helicopter Foxtrot hovered overhead, adding to the sense of tension, one report says officers pretended to search the vessel and even had the woman thinking she was about to be handcuffed before the delegate got on one knee and proposed.
