    The Daily Signal ^ | December 27, 2019 | David Ditch (FOX News)
    Some politicians running for federal office make it sound as if the biggest problem facing our country is that we don’t send enough of our paychecks to Washington, D.C. They propose increasing or creating new federal taxes on income, payrolls, business profits, carbon emissions, financial transactions, wealth, and more. Before they start trying to spend more and more of our money, they would do well to consider just how much they’re already spending. Looking back over the last decade, it’s clear they’ve already entered the “drunken sailor” stage. From 2010 through 2019, U.S. households sent an average of $228,000 to...

    ""Pelosi Lashes Out at Trump Admin For Delivering “Classified” War Powers Act Notification to Congress, ‘Americans Are Being Left in the Dark’"" House Speaker Nancy Pelosi lashed out at President Trump on Saturday after a formal notification of the drone strike was delivered to Capitol Hill. The White House informed Congress of the drone strike that killed General Qassim Soleimani, a top commander of Iran’s al-Quds Force at Baghdad’s International Airport. The White House delivered a formal, entirely classified notification to Congress on Saturday informing lawmakers of the airstrike that took out several Iranian military officials, fulfilling its duties under...

Here are the facts: Garcia leads the field in fundraising – having raised $750,000 by the end of November, from over 6,000 contributors. There is a path to win more than...

    Rep. Phil Roe (R-Tenn.) announced Friday that he will not seek reelection, making the six-term lawmaker the latest House Republican to head for the doors. "After prayerful consideration, I have decided to retire at the end of the 116th Congress," Roe said in a statement. "Serving East Tennesseans these past 11 years has been the honor of my life, and I will be forever grateful for the trust my friends and neighbors put in me to represent them," said Roe, the top Republican on the House Veterans' Affairs Committee. "As someone who practiced medicine for over 30 years, I said...
  • FLASHBACK: Obama launches 2,800 strikes on Iraq, Syria without congressional approval

    The Washington Times ^ | Monday, April 27, 2015 | Jacqueline Klimas
    U.S. forces have now surpassed 2,800 strikes against targets in Iraq and Syria under President Obama’s war against the Islamic State, all as part of a conflict Congress has yet to specifically authorize — and amid worries lawmakers won’t ever act. Under intense pressure from Capitol Hill, Mr. Obama finally submitted a draft authorization for the use of military force against the Islamic State in February, but it’s since languished, caught in the stalemate between those who want tighter restrictions and those who want the president to have as free a hand as possible. Now analysts worry that inaction will...

    George Washington’s farewell address is often remembered for its warning against hyper-partisanship: “The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism.” John Adams, Washington’s successor, similarly worried that “a division of the republic into two great parties … is to be dreaded as the great political evil.” America has now become that dreaded divided republic. The existential menace is as foretold, and it is breaking the system of government the Founders put in place...
  • Lawmakers pledge ERA will pass in Virginia. Then what?

    RICHMOND, Va. — Supporters of the Equal Rights Amendment are so confident Virginia is on the verge of becoming the critical 38th state to ratify the gender equality measure, they are already making plans for how they will celebrate. But that jubilation could be largely symbolic. Despite broad support for the amendment in the state, the ERA’s prospects nationally are substantially more complicated. The proposed 28th amendment to the U.S. Constitution faces a host of likely legal challenges and vehement opposition from conservative activists who depict the ERA as a threat to their stances on abortion and transgender rights.

    Socialist blue New York is seeing its locals fleeing to other states, and with those kind of losses, someone's congressional seat has got to go. Whose seat is on the block?  The Daily Wire has a report: According to pollster Frank Luntz, New York is likely to lose a seat in Congress after the 2020 census and Democrats in the state legislature will have to redraw the state's Congressional districts as a result. Although there are plenty of places to cut, New York Dems are reportedly eyeing Ocasio-Cortez's Bronx district for elimination because she's been out of sync with state-level Democrats who control...

    Mark Twain once wrote, "New Year's is a harmless annual institution, of no particular use to anybody save as a scapegoat for promiscuous drunks, and friendly calls, and humbug resolutions, and we wish you to enjoy it with a looseness suited to the greatness of the occasion." I love this quote, which is unfortunately all too accurate. Yet, I can't help but hope that as this new year begins, some in Congress and in the administration might find it worthwhile to follow a few resolutions that I offer below. Resolution No. 1: Don't apply new tariffs. Last year's trade policy...

Comey calls Trump a “shrunken, withered figure”. Comey also gets in a cheap shot at Trump supporters, calling them “sad people in red hats.”

    After facing substantial criticism for his recent vow not to comply with any Senate subpoena during an impeachment trial, Joe Biden’s now kind-of-sort-of backtracking on that vow. "I want to clarify something I said yesterday," Biden tweeted on Saturday. "In my 40 years in public life, I have always complied with a lawful order and in my eight years as VP, my office — unlike Donald Trump and Mike Pence — cooperated with legitimate congressional oversight requests." "But I am just not going to pretend that there is any legal basis for Republican subpoenas for my testimony in the impeachment...
