  • Hill panic: 300-600 Senate Dem staffers would be fired in GOP win

    Washington Examiner ^ | October 30, 2014 | Paul Bedard
    With projections of a GOP win growing daily, nervousness in Senate committee offices has turned to panic as an army of Democratic staffers braces to be fired, replaced by a Republican majority and their aides. The spoils of political war? Estimates are that 300-600 Democratic committee and personal staff jobs would be on the chopping block if the Republicans pull off the expected victory. “There will be a mass exodus of Senate Democrat staff from committees,” said one insider. And Republicans will get to hire hundreds more aides. A loss on Tuesday that keeps the Democrats in charge of the...

    The federal judge who dismissed lawsuits by Tea Party groups against the Internal Revenue Service was nominated by President George W. Bush. The media is making sure everyone knows that. Judge Reggie Walton was “a Republican-appointed federal judge,” Politico tells us. “Walton [was] a President George W. Bush-appointee.” “Walton was nominated as a federal judge in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, by President George W. Bush in 2001,” USA Today chimed in. That background was also noted in stories appearing in “conservative” sites, creating the impression that, even if the decision may be unpopular in some...

    Anyone arriving in California from an Ebola-affected area and who has had personal contact with a person infected with the deadly virus will be quarantined for 21 days, according to an order issued Wednesday by the state's public health director. The order provides a more nuanced set of guidelines to assess the risk associated with people returning from regions afflicted by an Ebola outbreak -- currently Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea -- than the controversial blanket quarantines in New Jersey, New York and Maine.

The lawyer who helped earn her release is a recent White House state dinner guest.Hickox was released from Ebola quarantine in Newark, N.J., Monday afternoon after the White House pressured New Jersey Gov.

    An election-watch group is suing Maryland over the alleged presence of noncitizens on the state’s voting rolls. The lawsuit, filed Friday in U.S. District Court in Baltimore, asserts that individuals who opted out of jury duty because they were not legal U.S. residents have cast ballots in at least three Maryland elections. Based on the number of potential unqualified voters identified in Frederick County, up to 7 percent of Maryland’s registered voters could be illegal immigrants, according to estimates. “Their continued appearance on these lists makes it nearly impossible for Maryland law to prevent these declared noncitizens from casting votes...

More from Watchdog.org: Voting machines that switch Republican votes to Democrats are being reported in Maryland. “When I first selected my candidate on the electronic machine, it would not put the ‘x’ on the candidate I chose — a Republican — but it would put the ‘x’ on the Democrat candidate above it,” Donna Hamilton said. “This happened...

    Electoral cheating is not the "myth" the Left pretends it is ... More than 14 percent of non-citizens in both the 2008 and 2010 samples indicated that they were registered to vote. ... Because non-citizens tended to favor Democrats (Obama won more than 80 percent of the votes of non-citizens in the 2008 CCES sample), we find that this participation was large enough to plausibly account for Democratic victories in a few close elections. Non-citizen votes could have given Senate Democrats the pivotal 60th vote needed to overcome filibusters in order to pass health-care reform and other Obama administration priorities...

    Senators who have warned of a massive power grab with the Environmental Protection Agency’s “clarification” of protected waters are accusing the Obama administration of intentionally misleading the public to push the rule through. Earlier this month, the EPA extended the public comment deadline on the “Waters of the United States” rule to Nov. 14. A final rule is expected in the spring. In March, the EPA began a “robust” 90-day “outreach effort” to gather input in shaping a final rule, maintaining that the directive is simply a clarification effort needed to define streams and wetlands protection after Supreme Court decisions...

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention spokesman Tom Skinner told Reuters on Friday that a mandatory quarantine is one possible plan under discussion by officials from across the administration. 'There are a number of options being discussed pertaining to the monitoring and mobility of healthcare workers who are returning to the United States from affected countries,' Skinner said.

    Fraud Alert: Judicial Watch Files Taxpayer Lawsuit to Stop Congress from Participating in D.C.’s Small Business Exchange Both houses of Congress were not exactly honest on the applications they filed with the District of Columbia’s Health Benefit Exchange Authority. In fact, the signatories who put their names to the applications seemed to make little pretense of providing truthful information. Under D.C. law, only those small businesses that have 50 or fewer employees can participate in the Small Business Exchange. Guess how many people are employed by Congress? And, guess how many employees Congress claims to have? Congress employs upwards of...

    WUSA in Washington DC reported that a woman who claimed she had recently been to West Africa vomited in a bus inside the Pentagon parking lot on Friday. According to WUSA, the woman vomited in the parking lot around 9:10 a.m. in the Pentagon’s parking lot. Officials in Arlington said that “the individual allegedly indicated that she had recently visited western Africa. Out of an abundance of caution, all pedestrian and vehicular traffic was suspended around the South Parking lot, while Arlington County responded to the scene.” The woman was taken to the Virginia Hospital Center, but did not exit...

    Bridget Johnson reported earlier that President Obama has appointed Ron Klain to become Ebola czar. Klain’s career is not in medicine, epidemiology, or any field related to disease control or prevention. Klain is a laywer, a K Street lobbyist, and a career Democrat party operative. Klain is not a doctor. He is a Democrat loyalist. Not only was he involved in Al Gore’s 2000 election recount as Bridget reported, Klain was involved in the Obama administration’s Solyndra debacle. In January 2012, ABC News reported that Klain, then Vice President Joe Biden’s chief of staff, was right in the middle of...

    The top deputy to Attorney General Eric Holder announced his resignation on Thursday amid revelations that Operation Fast and Furious scandal guns were used to harm Americans in Phoenix in 2013, a development top congressional Republicans say President Obama’s administration sought to cover up. ... Holder, the attorney general, has failed to cooperate with the Fast and Furious congressional investigation led by Issa and Grassley. Holder was voted, on a bipartisan basis, into both criminal and civil contempt of Congress—a first in the history of the United States for a Cabinet-level official—after he failed to provide documents to Issa’s committee...

    (CNSNews.com) – Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) did not respond to repeated questions about whether public citizens who ask him a question in the Capitol hallway should be physically barred from doing so by Capitol Police, as happened recently when reporter Jason Mattera introduced himself, shook Reid’s hand, and asked him a question about how he became a millionaire on a government salary.

    Documents Show Congress Submitted False Information to Participate in Exchange. Though restricted by law to small businesses with 50 or fewer employees, D.C. Exchange allows Congress to provide health insurance to 12,359 members of Congress, staffers, spouses, and dependents. Judicial Watch today filed a taxpayer lawsuit against the District of Columbia Health Benefit Exchange Authority to stop Congress from participating in D.C.’s “Small Business Exchange.” At least 12,359 members of Congress, congressional staffers, and their spouses and dependents currently purchase health insurance in D.C.’s “Small Business Exchange” even though Congress far exceeds D.C. law’s 50-employee limit for participating in the...

    David Valadao is a Republican member of Congress from California, but voters in his agriculture-heavy district won’t necessarily recognize that he’s the incumbent when they cast their vote. Instead, he’ll be listed on the ballot as “farmer/small businessman.” Farther north, Democratic Rep. Ami Bera is highlighting some of his other credentials—as well as congressman. Bera will be listed as “doctor/teacher/congressman.” Running against him in the Sacramento suburbs, Republican Doug Ose, a former three-term congressman, describes himself as “small business owner.” State law does not allow him to cite his former job as a congressman. California is unusual in that it...
