  • GOP House backs state medical marijuana laws

    Associated Press ^ | May 30, 2014 2:04 AM EDT | Andrew Taylor
    The GOP-controlled House voted early Friday in favor of blocking the federal government from interfering with states that permit the use of medical marijuana. The somewhat surprising 219-189 vote came as the House debated a bill funding the Justice Department’s budget. The amendment by conservative GOP Rep. Dana Rohrabacher of California—the first state to legalize medical marijuana—came as almost half the states have legalized marijuana for medical uses, such as improving the appetites of cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. …
  • U.S. Lawmakers Speak Out Against Cutting Off Aid to Egypt

    U.S. lawmakers on Tuesday urged the White House to lift its suspension of military aid to Egypt, AFP reports. The lawmakers warned that freezing funds and weapons deliveries might unravel decades of cooperation with a key regional ally. Democratic Representative Eliot Engel, a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, said he had initially supported a temporary halt to deliveries of F-16 aircraft to the Egyptian military following its ouster of President Mohammed Morsi in July. “But today I do not believe that suspending the military aid will make the Egyptian government more democratic or make it easier for the...

    "If these negotiations [with Iran] fail, there are two grim alternatives," said Sen. Richard Durbin, "a nuclear Iran, or war, or perhaps both." Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham returned from the Munich security conference saying that even John Kerry agrees that President Obama's Syrian policy has failed. They are urging another look at air strikes. North Korea is warning that should the annual U.S.-South Korean military exercises go forward in March, it could mean war, possibly nuclear war. Philippines President Benigno Aquino III this week compared his country's situation to Czechoslovakia in 1938, and the disputed islets off his...

    There he goes again. When last we heard from U.S. Congressman Dana Rohrabacher, a fourth-term Republican of California, he was working feverishly to help U.S.-despising Russian dictator Vladimir Putin deflect blame justifiably coming his way over the Boston Marathon bombing. Now, Rohrabacher is being trumpeted by Kremlin-operated newswire service RIA Novosti as claiming that the U.S. is "shooting itself in the foot" by noticing that Russia is sheltering the treacherous Edward Snowden and providing massive military support to the America-hating terrorists of Hizb'allah. Rohrabacher says he likes the "spirit" and "sense of humor" of Russians and says they're the only...

    Just days after issuing a sweeping terror alert that broadly warned Americans against global travel and temporarily closing embassies across the Middle East, President Obama returned to pressing his longtime narrative that al-Qaeda is on the run. Obama told Marines at Camp Pendleton this afternoon that he was there to mark the war in Afghanistan entering “the final chapter.” “More of our troops are coming home. We’ll be down to 34,000 this winter. By the end of next year, in just 17 months, the transition will be complete, Afghans will take full responsibility for their security, and our war in...

    Ansar al-Sharia is a jihadist group that was ultimately blamed for the terrorist attack that resulted in the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi on 9/11/12. Authors’ Note: Though the report below may be viewed as a stand-alone body of work, we introduce it as Addendum A to Ironclad: Egypt Involved in Benghazi Attacks. This addendum was initiated in response to the testimony of three expert witnesses at a Foreign Affairs Joint Subcommittee Hearing on July 10, 2013. We believe that this report further demonstrates enough probable cause exists that Ansar al-Sharia, the Muslim Brotherhood, Mohammed Mursi, and the former...

    Representative Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) said at a Thursday press conference that House Republicans will rise up against GOP leadership if House Speaker John Boehner tries to rush any immigration reform bill through his chamber of Congress. “There would be a revolt among Republicans” if Boehner abandoned regular order on this issue, Rohrabacher said in response to a question from Breitbart News at the presser. According to a recent Politico report, Boehner is seriously considering abandoning regular order to rush through immigration reform. Regular orders is the process by which a bill is supposed to come up through the respective committees...

    Cheap tequila on the Kookville Express must have been free flowing as tipsy conductor Dana Rohrabacher pulled into the Costa Mesa train station on Dec. 6 to pen another wild, late night Twitter rant. Republicans like to claim they despise class warfare, but Orange County's senior career politician has concocted in his brain precisely the methodology Barack Obama used to romp Mitt Romney 332 to 206 in the electoral college: he simply stole the election. According to Rohrabacher, poor people and foreigners were paid to vote against Romney. Rohrabacher wrote, "1 reason GOP lost was Obama giveaways to cronies who...

    The California congressman who's made the plight of jailed Pakistani doctor Shakil Afridi a personal cause said Monday he's concerned the case has fallen off the radar screen -- and that without U.S. intervention, the man credited with helping track Usama bin Laden will be left to "suffer in a dungeon." Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., was among the many U.S. officials outraged last month after Afridi was sentenced to 33 years in prison. But little has been heard of his case since that time. "It doesn't appear that other people are taking this case seriously," Rohrabacher said. "I don't see...

    Military: Two U.S. congressmen take the lead in proclaiming the obvious — that those who attack this country should be punished and not those who risk their lives to defend it. The Navy SEALs are a special breed of patriot and warrior. This highly trained and select group — the best of the best — is a daily participant in the long twilight struggle against the enemies of freedom that President Kennedy warned us about. Kennedy formally created the SEAL (sea, air, land) outfit as an elite force capable of combat operations in any environment. It was a team of...

Here's his email: Vice President Richard Cheney: vice_president@whitehouse.gov If you're a good talker, call talk shows and get radio listeners to contact President Bush, and VP Cheney.

    (CNSNews.com) – In the waning days of the Bush administration, the Department of Justice (DOJ) is mulling whether to recommend a commutation for the two former Border Patrol agents jailed for more than a decade each for shooting a Mexican drug smuggler in the buttocks. The case is now before the DOJ’s Pardon Attorney Donald Rodgers. The Office of Pardon Attorney works in consultation with the attorney general’s office to assist the president, who has sole power of clemency in federal cases under the Constitution. Ultimately, it is the president’s call regardless of what the Office of Pardon Attorney recommends....

    A rebel US Republican congressman has sided with Russia in its invasion of and brief war with Georgia, putting himself at odds with the Bush administration and politicians of both parties. "The Russians were right; we're wrong," Rep. Dana Rohrabacher said at a hearing of the House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee. "The Georgians started it; the Russians ended it," he added. Mr Rohrabacher claimed that unidentified intelligence sources had assured him that Georgia started the fighting that began on August 7 when Georgia's military tried to re-establish control over its breakaway, pro-Russian province of South Ossetia. Russia joined the...

    Most people would consider corrupt border patrol agents to be part of the illegal immigration problem, not the solution. So it's passing strange that anti-immigration Republicans in Congress are calling for the federal government to release Ignacio Ramos and Jose Alonso Compean, two former border guards from Texas who were sent to prison last week for shooting an unarmed man in the back and then trying to cover up their crime.

The 150-pound menorah, which was 15 feet high and 10 feet wide, was placed earlier this month in Ladera Ranch, a planned community near Mission Viejo. One or more vandals struck between 10 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. Saturday, cutting the menorah's stem, breaking its lightbulbs, and smashing its stars, said Orange County Sheriff's Lt. Lloyd Downing.

    <p>So Register columnist Steven Greenhut is "dismayed" that Bob Dornan would exercise his constitutional rights to run in the primary against entrenched incumbent Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Huntington Beach. What is truly dismaying, however, is Greenhut's bathroom-wall vitriol against Dornan ["Time to flush Dornan's potty politics." Commentary, Feb. 1]. The only thing resembling Greenhut's potty spin is the swirling maelstrom of liberal mythology conjured up to discredit Dornan's exposure of the truth. Rather then plumb for truth, Greenhut engages in ad-hominem attacks, excusing Rohrabacher's decade- long association with extremists. Greenhut's attempt to trivialize and minimize glaring evidence of influence-peddling is a pathetic attempt to cover up for the congressman's links to radical Islam.</p>
