    Bryan Steil, a former aide to Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), on Sunday announced his bid for Ryan’s congressional seat, The Associated Press reported. “I want to take my problem-solving skills to Congress. I think they need problem solvers, doers ... not talkers,” Steil reportedly said. No viable Republican candidate had entered the race before Ryan announced his retirement earlier this month. The primary is scheduled for Aug. 14. Steil, who is from Ryan’s hometown of Janesville, sits on the Board of Regents for the University of Wisconsin, the AP reported. He served as an economic adviser and legislative aide to...
  • Let's Limit Spending: Why a Balanced Budget Amendment is not the key to our Big Government problems.

    Frontpage Mag ^ | 02/06/2018 | Walter Williams
    Some people have called for a balanced budget amendment to our Constitution as a means of reining in a big-spending Congress. That's a misguided vision, for the simple reason that in any real economic sense, as opposed to an accounting sense, the federal budget is always balanced. The value of what we produced in 2017 — our gross domestic product — totaled about $19 trillion. If the Congress spent $4 trillion of the $19 trillion that we produced, unless you believe in Santa Claus, you know that Congress must force us to spend $4 trillion less privately. Taxing us is...
  • Court: Pennsylvania's congressional map is illegal and must be redrawn

    Pennsylvania's Republican-leaning congressional map is illegal and must be redrawn, according to a 4-3 ruling by the Democratic-leaning state Supreme Court. The 3-page ruling was released this afternoon. The order says the state’s 2011 map “plainly and palpably violates the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.” The ruling directs the GOP-controlled Legislature to redraw the map and submit it to Gov. Tom Wolf, a Democrat, by Feb. 9 and the court for approval by Feb. 15. If lawmakers or the governor miss those deadlines, the court would draw its own map “based on the evidentiary record developed.” Gerrymandering foes urged...

  • Breaking: Democratic Congressional Candidate Arrested

    Democrats have been falling all over themselves to attack Republicans in the wake of the accusations that broke against Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore. Media has been covering it non-stop. It’s understandably a story. Moore was accused of inappropriate conduct with a 14-year-old some 39 years ago, when he was 32. He also was accused of trying to date three other women aged 16, 17 and 18 at around the same time. No one wants a Senator who may act inappropriately with a 14-year-old if the story is true. But will Democrats and media turn the same attention to...

    So much for defanging the poisonous debate in Washington. Dozens of congressional staffers erupted into boos, jeers and even vulgar gesticulations Thursday when President Trump appeared in a video at the Congressional Baseball Game at Nationals Park. Mr. Trump delivered a message of unity, but some fans in the stands weren’t having any of it. One man shouted an expletive at the video screen as Mr. Trump was telling the fans: “We are showing the world we will not be intimidated by threats.” The episode marred what had been a night celebrating those wounded in Wednesday’s murderous attack on GOP...

  • It's Time to Award Electoral College Votes by Congressional District

    American Family Association ^ | February 3, 2015 | Bryan Fisher
    The custom in the United States today is for Electoral College (EC) votes to be awarded state-by-state on a winner-take-all basis. A candidate who wins the popular vote in an individual state gets every one of its electoral votes. Although we are accustomed to thinking this is the only way it can be done, the method of awarding electoral votes is a matter for each state to decide. For example, two states (Nebraska and Maine) award electoral college votes by congressional district rather than by statewide popular vote. There is no reason for every other state in the nation not...

    A cancelled event advocating for economic boycotts of Israel has been rescheduled down the street from its original location in one of the House of Representatives office buildings, according to an invitation obtained Thursday by THE WEEKLY STANDARD. The briefing, sponsored by the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, is being billed as a "Capitol Hill event" about the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, but will be occurring at the United Methodist Building. TWS reported Monday that Texas congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee was listed as the anonymous sponsor of the event when it was scheduled to occur in...

The purpose of the meeting is to followup regarding a letter signed by 77 other Members of Congress calling on President Obama...

    A little-noticed lawsuit brought by a Maryland man challenging the state's contorted congressional districts will be heard this fall by the Supreme Court — where it has the potential to open a new line of constitutional attack for opponents of gerrymandering. Stephen M. Shapiro, a former federal worker from Bethesda, argues that the political map drawn by state Democrats after the 2010 census violated the First Amendment rights of Republicans by placing them in districts in which they were in the minority, marginalizing them based solely on their political views. The issue before the Supreme Court is whether a lower...
  • Sources: Clinton confidant who sent Libya memos paid $200G by Brock network

    The Clinton confidant under scrutiny on Capitol Hill over detailed Libya memos he sent to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told lawmakers earlier this week he has been pulling in $200,000 a year from Clinton ally David Brock's media operation, congressional sources tell FoxNews.com. The figure is far higher than initially reported. While the payments to Sidney Blumenthal may not reflect any apparent conflict of interest, his work with Brock's liberal advocacy and media groups was a focus of his high-profile deposition on Tuesday before the House Benghazi committee. Republicans' rationale for the questioning was that his financial and political...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Relations between President Barack Obama and congressional Republicans have hit a new low. There has been little direct communication between Obama and the GOP leadership on Capitol Hill since Republicans took full control of Congress in January. Obama has threatened to veto more than a dozen Republican-backed bills. And House Speaker John Boehner infuriated the White House by inviting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address Congress without consulting the administration first. But the dispute over Obama's high-stakes nuclear negotiations with Iran has put the relationship perhaps beyond repair. The president and his advisers are seething over...
