    Now that they will be back in the majority in the House of Representatives starting in January, Democrats are looking to ways to make raising taxes on Americans easier. Incoming House Rules Committee chairman Rep. Jim McGovern (D-Mass) announced he will not be abiding by the formerly bipartisan agreement to require a three-fifths majority to raise income taxes. “It should not be so hard for the government to seize the wealth that collectively belongs to the state,” McGovern said. “The notion that the person who earns an income should have protection against the government taking a bigger slice of it...

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez needs a break. The Bronx-bred democratic socialist heading into her freshman term in the House of Representatives announced Monday she’s taking some time off to take care of herself before she officially starts her new job — and she’s taking her supporters along for the ride.

    The Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT) has released its list of Worst Ethics Violators of 2018, which includes 2020 presidential hopefuls Sens. Kamala Harris (D-CA) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA). Both Harris and Warren used their opposition of Brett Kavanaugh’s appointment to the Supreme Court as an opportunity to fundraise, according to FACT. The two Democratic Senators sent out emails claiming that the donation played a vital role in battling his confirmation. Shortly thereafter, FACT filed an ethics complaint against both senators. Warren was caught off guard during a televised debate when her opponent mentioned that she was under...
  • Trump impeachment countdown is on

    The Boston Herald ^ | December 18, 2018 | Joe Battenfeld
    The impeachment countdown is on. Democrats are lurching inexorably toward trying to dump President Trump, even if they won’t admit it now. Conventional wisdom says that the Dems, who are about to take over the U.S. House, are proceeding cautiously, and will be reluctant to launch into impeachment proceedings. Nancy Pelosi is trying her best to restrain herself. Don’t believe it. Democrats would like nothing better than to oust Trump. If Robert Mueller provides them with the ammo, the party won’t be able to resist. Left-leaning voters are pressuring lawmakers to act, thinking about the months long torture that impeachment...

    House Democrats are making plans for a prolonged shutdown that will begin Saturday if the White House and lawmakers are unable to work out an agreement on President Trump’s demands for $5 billion in funding for his wall on the Mexican border. “We're making contingency plans for a long-term shutdown,” said one Democratic House aide, who pointed to the possibility that the partial government shutdown would last into the beginning of the new Congress, when Democrats will take over the House majority. “If the shutdown goes until Jan. 3, we'll bring up a funding bill,” the aide said. Democrats, after...

    The caravan of people trying to illegally enter the United States is taking steps to vindicate President Trump’s policy of keeping them out. On the one hand, 280 of them have been arrested by Mexican police for burglarizing residences in Tijuana. Meanwhile, another 100 of them have tried their hand at extortion by demanding $50,000 apiece as the price of them ceasing to assault the border and go home. The Trump Administration has flatly rejected this blackmail demand, but House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) urged consideration of what they termed “a reasonable request.”...
  • Outraged Democrats vow to challenge court ruling undercutting Obamacare

    12/16/2018 5:25:39 PM PST · by Olog-hai · 59 replies
    Outraged Democrats vowed to appeal a federal judge’s ruling that could undo the US health care law known as Obamacare, saying on Saturday that they will use their new power in Congress to hold Republicans responsible and “expose their lies.” US District Judge Reed O’Connor ruled late Friday that the health insurance reform, officially known as the Affordable Care Act (ACA), is unconstitutional. The White House said it expects the ruling to be appealed to the Supreme Court. For now, it said in a statement, “the law remains in place.” But Democrats, who have seen the law survive scores of...

    Markers are already being laid down along racial and gender lines that could restrict Dem options for assembling a 2020 ticket. On Joy Reid's MSNBC show this morning, guest Jason Johnson warned: JASON JOHNSON: What's the most important constituency for Democrats in 2020? Black women. And I've heard plenty of black women say, if there's not a black woman on this ticket, I'm not voting, I'm not excited, I'm not enthusiastic."If the Democratic party wants to run seriously in 2020, they can't relegate black women to second class. They can't relegate black women a consolation prize. Not-so-joyous Reid then established...

    Donald Trump’s backers warn that Washington Beltway’s Plan A is to secure his removal or resignation. In case that fails, Plan B is to ensure he withdraws from the 2020 contest. New York: Many, if not most, genuine loyalists of the 45th President of the United States are in the world’s most famous metropolis. They are clustered within Manhattan, the location where the worldwide Trump Organisation is headquartered, and which has been home to four generations of what since 20 January 2017 is the First Family of the world’s most powerful country. While some of the few who are personally...

    Washington Post via Tulsa World ^ | 12/14/18 | Mike DeBonis, Robert Costa
    WASHINGTON — Rep. Nancy Pelosi's opponents knew they had an opportunity. But what they really needed was an alternative. This past summer, they thought they had identified the perfect candidate to replace Pelosi, D-Calif., as the party's House leader: Rep. Karen Bass, a respected Californian who once served as speaker of the state assembly. At least two of Pelosi's rivals suggested to Bass that she pursue the post, and they left meetings with her encouraged. But it was wishful thinking. "They had hoped that I would consider it," Bass said Thursday. "I was clear: I would never challenge Pelosi."

    The Federalist ^ | December 14, 2018 | Eric Eggers
    America’s electoral obsession isn’t Russian meddling anymore. It’s ballot-harvesting, a long-disputed practice implicated in fraud that’s come to the fore with the nationwide embrace of absentee voting in recent years — and especially in last month’s midterms. With ballot-harvesting, paper votes are collected by intermediaries who deliver them to polling officials, presumably increasing voter turnout but also creating opportunities for mischief.

    THE BORDER WALL: What it's REALLY ABOUT! As anyone with a brain saw during the “Kavanaugh Klusterhump”, the Marxist/Socialist Democrats on the Left (but I repeat myself, thrice) will do ANYTHING to seize and retain P.O.W.E.R. Senator Graham got it exactly right during that would-be lynching. In addition to their having philosophically captured HUGE slugs of the academic, judicial, administrative and, yes, ecclesiastical sectors beginning back in the Wilson and Roosevelt eras, their Marxist Socialist Utopia was not developing quickly enough for them. Comes then the so-called “Feminist Revolution” of the 70s during which the Left convinced millions of American...

    Time's Up Legal Defense Fund and Time's Up Entertainment are among the 18 recipients of a $20 million donation from CBS Corporation, an amount determined when Leslie Moonves was pushed out as CEO over sexual misconduct allegations, according to a press release issued Friday. The money was earmarked for groups focused on "eliminating sexual harassment in the workplace." The funds will be distributed within 60 days of execution of the agreement, according to a person familiar with the arrangement. The amount each group will receive was based on their proposal and "capacity to absorb funds relative to their annual budgets."...

    Want a good morning laugh? Get a load of National Review's Kyle Smith and his hilarious vivisection of Michael Avenatti, whose rise and fall show just how absurd he and his Democratic cheerleaders always were. Here's the start of the piece and don't tell me you don't want to read further : Remember when Michael Avenatti was the Democrats' big hope for 2020? He wasn't just that, though. Parachuting in to launch his presidential campaign to the DNC's "Ethnic Council" and its black caucus in Chicago in August, he enthusiastically adopted the party's guiltspeak.

    A former top official at the Justice Department argues that President Trump can yet be indicted for campaign finance violations as part of a possible decision to delay his trial until after he leaves office. Neal Katyal, a former deputy and acting solicitor general under President Obama, told the Yahoo News podcast “Skullduggery” that Trump allegedly directing payoffs to two women to silence them during the 2016 campaign was “very serious.” He said the payments could be grounds to challenge department legal opinions that conclude presidents cannot be indicted while in office. “I think it’s a bad constitutional argument to...

    There are thousands of families in the U.S. who have lost children and family members to illegal aliens in a variety of horrific ways. In that sure-to-go-down-in-history Oval Office confab, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer effectively let us know that they don't care about us or our losses. They need Democrat voters; that is their abiding goal. The theatrics in the Oval Office on Tuesday morning were just that: great theater. Trump always steps ahead of his opponents, and he set up Schumer and Pelosi. He began his discussion with the press in the room. Pelosi came in spouting "transparency"...
