    Former Secretary of Labor Bob Reich, on behalf of MoveOn, warns Democrats what will happen if Republicans take control of the Senate: they may use a “tricky, little-known maneuver” to “ram through” their “right-wing policies” with only 51 votes, instead of the 60 votes “usually required” in the Senate. Here he is:Reconciliation

    According to an Associated Press report, a federal judge has held the EPA in contempt for destroying computer files sought after by a conservative group: Landmark Legal Foundation…U.S. District Judge Royce Lamberth had ordered the EPA on Jan. 19, 2001, at the end of the Clinton administration, to preserve all documents relevant to a Freedom of Information Act request by Landmark regarding the federal agency’s contact with outside groups. That same day, EPA Administrator Carol Browner asked a technician to delete her computer files. Browner later testified that she was unaware of the court order and simply wanted to remove...

    Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker criticized the accusation he illegally coordinated fundraising with conservative groups during an appearance on Fox News. "We tried to take the government away from the big government special interest and put it firmly in the hands of the hard working taxpayers, both at the state level and the local governments," Walker, a Republican and potential 2016 presidential candidate, told "Fox & Friends" on Friday.

    "Eric Holder described the charging of five Chinese military officers with cybercrimes as a "wake-up call" and China is certainly paying attention: Government officials have summoned the US ambassador in Beijing, suspended a cybersecurity agreement made with the US last month, and denounced the charges as an "absurd" move that has "severely damaged mutual trust," reports the BBC, which notes that it is "extremely unlikely" that any of the accused will ever be sent to the US to face charges."

    The IRS’ Washington, D.C. headquarters targeted conservative groups in part due to pressure from Democratic Sen. Carl Levin, according to emails obtained by the watchdog group Judicial Watch and reviewed by The Daily Caller. Levin, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs’ permanent subcommittee on investigations, wrote a March 30, 2012 letter to then-IRS commissioner Douglas Shulman discussing the “urgency” of the issue of possible political activity by nonprofit applicants. Levin asked if the IRS was sending out additional information requests to applicant groups and citing an IRS rejection letter to a conservative group as an example of...

    A warning by the Federal Election Commission chairman that “some on the left” want to restrict conservative media outlets on the Internet underscores a long history of various efforts that set out to limit the impact of money on politics, even the playing field for minorities and provide equal time to conflicting political arguments but end up squelching free speech. FEC Chairman Lee E. Goodman said in an interview with the Washington Examiner that government officials are reacting to the growing power of conservative media, particularly independent news outlets with an Internet presence, by devising ways to curb the media’s...

    Only a few weeks after President Obama's controversial decision to delay the building of the Keystone XL pipeline, the Obama administration is expected in the next several weeks to approve a 500-mile green energy transmission line project running through Arizona and New Mexico that his own Defense Department says may pose "an unacceptable risk to national security." The multibillion-dollar electric power line project, financed by a group called SunZia, would connect wind power facilities in eastern New Mexico to the electric grid and supply power to Arizona and California.

    The nomination of Dr. Vivek Murthy as Surgeon General is on ice until after November’s election, and top Senate Democrats say that decision was made in the White House. Democrats’ decision to back off the nomination in the face of NRA opposition has prompted much hand-wringing on editorial pages and the left, along with some back-biting over the last week. Amid the fallout, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s staff has privately worked to emphasize to concerned allies that the decision to pull the plug on Murthy came from the White House.

    Seventy-five state employees were found to be regularly violating time and attendance policies to work two public jobs at the same time, according to state Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli. These employees cost taxpayers $413,277 for the 4,803 hours they claimed, but did not work, DiNapoli announced Thursday. Employees falsified timesheets, abused sick leave and misrepresented travel time from one job to another, officials reported. The Comptroller's Office found the employees in audits conducted of six state agencies and authorities, according to the comptroller's office. Auditors examined 345 employees and found 75 working at a second job at the same time...

    Negative campaign tactics are as old as our Republic, but every now and then a candidate manages to lower the bar even more. This year's award for dubious distinction goes to Steve Stockman, Republican candidate for the newly formed U.S. House District 36. He's in Tuesday's runoff against Baytown financial advisor Stephen Takach, whom we have endorsed. Stockman, the colorful and controversial figure who beat veteran Congressman Jack Brooks in the 1994 GOP landslide, is running a campaign that's unusual even for a non-traditional politician like him: 1) He isn't saying much, ducking most news media and public events (even...

    Back in November, Hot Air linked to the Wall Street Journal, pointing out Obama's lack of shame when it comes to campaigning on the public dime. More than opinion, that determination was based on fact. Actually, it was data that allowed the WJS to reach its conclusion. Now, thanks to the White House's Community Partnership Summits, the administration is at it, again. The White House dismisses the data, but, according to a study by Brendan Doherty, a U.S. naval academy assistant professor and expert on presidential travel, President Barack Obama has visited swing states “on official business” more times in...

    That time-honored anti-cheating mantra, “You’re only hurting yourself,” may be literal fact, according to new research. Emerging evidence suggests students who cheat on a test are more likely to deceive themselves into thinking they earned a high grade on their own merits, setting themselves up for future academic failure. In four experiments detailed in the March Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, researchers from the Harvard Business School and Duke University found that cheaters pay for the short-term benefits of higher scores with inflated expectations for future performance. The findings come as surveys and studies show a majority of...

    “Torrid” is the word the nearly 60-year-old congressman used to describe his extended adulterous relationship with a married staffer that destroyed his political career. He is possibly the last politician in this town that most observers — especially those of us who knew him and respected him — would have expected to have an affair. When he and the woman met, he said, they spontaneously felt a “spark.” As they worked closely together, the spark ignited a flame of passion that eventually engulfed them. The congressman added, as a matter of context, that his vulnerability stemmed in part from the...

    Only 25 votes separate Republican Tim Tedisco and Democrat Scott Murphy in the special election for New York’s 20th district. That means the winner will be determined by 6,000 outstanding absentee ballots. According to the Department of Justice, 1,300 overseas voters requested absentee ballots, 471 of whom are military voters. Unfortunately, it is the military voters who will probably end up being disenfranchised and having their votes discounted, thanks to the irresponsible New York Board of Elections and the half-hearted actions of the Department of Justice.

Kirk owes an estimated $10,000 in back taxes from earlier in the decade and has agreed to pay them, the Senate Finance Committee said Monday. The committee said the taxes arise from Kirk's handling of speaking fees he donated to a scholarship fund that he set up at his alma mater, and for his deduction of the full cost of season tickets to the Dallas Mavericks professional basketball team.

    CHICAGO – A Chicago minister told The Associated Press he and other black pastors who previously supported U.S. Sen. Roland Burris now plan to ask him to resign. The minister spoke Thursday on condition of anonymity because a meeting with Burris hadn't yet been scheduled. Many of the city's black pastors supported seating Burris because of his scandal-free reputation — even though he was appointed by then-Gov. Rod Blagojevich after the governor was arrested. But revelations that Burris attempted to raise money for Blagojevich while seeking the Senate job have eroded some of his support. Blagojevich is accused of trying...
