    Congressional Republicans have been targeted by a crime wave this spring, with burglars curiously able to repeatedly break into offices without security noticing. Despite security in the Hill office buildings, the offices of Reps. Jon Runyan (R-N.J.), Jerry Lewis (R-Calif.) and Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) were burglarized last month, with Runyan’s office hit twice. Also hit was the Oversight and Government Reform Committee office and the staff office for the Appropriations subcommittee on Homeland Security, both under control of the Republican majority.

    On May 10 the Congressional Black Caucus and Congressional Pro-Choice Caucus were honorary co-hosts of a wordy briefing entitled, “African Americans’ Attitudes on Abortion, Contraception, and Reproductive, Justice: From Public Opinion to Policymaking,” held at the U.S. Capitol. On the agenda: “numerous challenges to accessing quality, affordable reproductive health care… exacerbated by campaigns targeting the African American community” “research on the latest attitudes and concerns of African Americans relating to reproductive justice” “key messaging as a response to attacks and threats to reproductive rights” Organizers were obviously alarmed by the inroads pro-lifers have made into the black community, hence the...

    The Weekly Standard ^ | May 18, 2012 | Michael Warren
    After a poll released this week showed President Barack Obama only beating his Democratic primary opponent John Wolfe Jr. by seven points, 45 percent to 38 percent, in Arkansas's Fourth Congressional District, state Democrats moved to practically disenfranchise Arkansas voters. "[D]elegates Wolfe might claim won't be recognized at the national convention," national party officials are telling state Democrats. Wolfe is being accused of not following the party rules. “They want a coronation,” Wolfe tells THE WEEKLY STANDARD. “They’re conflating [Obama] with the party. Are we supposed to call him ‘Dear Leader’? Is this some kind of North Korea thing?” Wolfe...
  • Will Gay Marriage Force Black Churches to Reconsider Democratic Party?

    Townhall.com ^ | May 18, 2012 | Larry Elder
    President Obama's affirmation of gay marriage threatens to undermine the near-monolithic black support Obama enjoyed in 2008. Several members of the black clergy now say they intend to sit out the presidential election. One poll from last November found black opposition to gay marriage at 58 percent, higher than the rest of the country, which is about evenly split. The real question is this: What took black church leaders so long to reconsider their near blind support for the Democratic Party? The historical strength of black churches has been that of a moral and spiritual refuge in a once-hostile country...

    The Hill ^ | May 17, 2012 | Mike Lillis
    House Democratic leaders on Thursday introduced legislation to streamline Americans' trips to the polls. The bill is a response to a slew of recent state legislation – some proposed, some already law – setting stricter standards for voters to register or cast a ballot. Supporters of those state efforts — including new picture ID and proof-of-citizenship requirements – say they're necessary to weed out ineligible voters and maintain the integrity of elections. But critics contend they're designed to suppress eligible voters, particularly minorities and low-income Americans who tend to vote Democratic. Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.), a hero of the civil...
  • Obama Courts Veterans’ Votes with Outreach Campaign (Not satire!)

    President Obama is making a targeted effort to court the votes of military veterans and their families, believing the constituency is in play for November and could make a difference in key battleground states. The Obama campaign today kicked off a grassroots organizing effort — dubbed “Veterans and Military Families for Obama” — led by retired Naval officer and Iraq war veteran Rob Diamond. “It’s no secret to anyone where our military bases are in this country and where our veterans and military communities are located,” Diamond said of the strategy on a conference call with reporters. “And the goal...

    The Senate on Wednesday rejected every single budget being offered this year, leaving the chamber — and therefore the federal government — without a plan to address Medicare, Social Security and the other major entitlement programs that are driving deficits and debt. In repeated votes, Democrats who control the chamber defeated four Republican proposals, including a plan that passed the House in March. The entire Senate also unanimously rejected President Obama’s 2013 budget, voting 99-0 against it, following a 414-0 vote against it in the House earlier this year. “A stunning development for the president of the United States in...

    Advocacy: If you want an insight into today's left, look at its multifront war against the American Legislative Exchange Council for committing the grave sin of pushing free-market bills in state legislatures. At a recent meeting in Washington, Aniello Alioto of ProgressNow Colorado summed up the left-wing's campaign against ALEC: "Never relent, never let up pressure, and always increase." According to the Washington Free Beacon, ProgressNow was one of several left-wing groups meeting at AFL-CIO headquarters earlier this month to plot their ongoing campaign against ALEC. Other groups included Common Cause and the Color of Change. So what's got the...

    Obama’s aides freak over possible Rev. Wright-themed attack ads By Neil Munro - The Daily Caller 9:28 AM 05/17/2012 Top Democratic strategists have reacted quickly to stop a proposed $10 million advertising campaign that would highlight the relationship between President Barack Obama and his old Chicago pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright. Plans for the potential ad campaign were revealed this morning by the New York Times. “Stunning! Will Mitt stand up, as [Sen.] John McCain did? Or allow the purveyors of slime to operate on his behalf?” claimed a 5.42 a.m. tweet from David Axelrod, the senior strategic at Obama’s campaign...

    While we have rescued our economy from catastrophe, we have also begun to build a new foundation for growth." Barack Obama from the White House, August 7, 2009 In 2008, Obama inspired legions of young Americans who bought into his "Change you can believe in" campaign message. According to the Pew Research Center, voters under the age of 30 supported Obama over John McCain 66:31 – by far the largest disparity between young voters and other age groups in any presidential election since exit polling began in 1972. In addition to the critical vote totals, Obama attracted thousands of high...

    It is the largest law enforcement operation in Chicago history, melding dozens of agencies and spanning all levels of government. The goal is to protect the president, heads of state and diplomats from violent protesters, anarchistsand terrorists while at the same time securing everyone's rights and keeping property intact. On the waterways, in the air and on land,peacekeeping is a monstrous undertaking for federal, stateand local authorities.

    Examples of how easy it is to assume the identity of a dead person for purposes of casting a vote are growing. America has an “identity Achilles Heel” and it’s our voting process. In our nation the amount of identification required for an activity grows in direct proportion to how important an activity is thought to be – except when it comes to voting. Consider the activities judged to be more important than voting as indicated by the level of identification required. Picking up tickets at a “Will Call” window requires a photo ID and sometimes more. Opening a bank...

    It’s generally best to speak to experts when making broad claims about national policy. For instance, if we want to analyze U.S. corporate tax policy it’s probably best to take the word of a few tax attorneys than, say, a constitutional law scholar. A new study by Jonathan Sallet and Robert Rizzi, partner attorneys in the tax practice of O’Melveny & Myers LLP, highlight the constricting nature of corporate tax rates. ATR has previously highlighted the job-killing nature of high corporate taxes and the anti-growth effects of maintaining the highest corporate tax rate in the industrialized world.

    Boy, Ed Klein’s new book has more panties in a bunch around here than even Jodi Kantor’s did – and I didn’t think that was possible. President Obama famously claimed to know more about policy than his policy directors, but he didn’t mention First Lady Michelle Obama, who comprises one half of a “stealth co-presidency” according to a new book on the Obamas. It’s not as if Lady M wanted to be co-president: Michelle Obama practically vetoed the choice of Hillary Clinton serving as vice president. “Do you really want Bill and Hillary just down the hall from you in...

    President Obama and his lackeys on the left will do and say anything to destroy our capitalist system that has made us the greatest nation to ever grace this earth. Let’s face it; the President is a utopian idealist, who has no real world experience working with the “free-market” system. His primary purpose is to push his agenda of “fair-share” and to increase the individual’s dependency on “Big Government”. With the Justice Department today indicating they are launching a criminal probe into a $2 Billion trading loss at JP Morgan, the President’s Administration is at it again. JP Morgan Chase...

While Anna Gristina, a Connecticut mother accused of being a New York “madam” sits in a cell on Riker’s Island, Jon Corzine, the former CEO of MF Global sits at home in his New Jersey mansion. MF Global had been a publically traded securities firm with $40 billion in assets, but with liabilities even larger, filed for bankruptcy late last year, after being accused of co-mingling customer funds with its own, a flagrant violation of securities law.

He says he was eventually fired for protesting his treatment by Jackson and other PUSH employees and is seeking hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages.

    For the second consecutive year, the Democrat-controlled United States Senate has unanimously rejected President Obama's 2013 budget.  The final vote was 99-0, making the the running two-year tally 196-0.  This move follows the House of Representatives' 414-0 rebuke of the same fiscal blueprint earlier this year.  Astonishingly, not a single Senate Democrat has voted in favor of any budget for three years, even as they refuse to offer a plan of their own.  Democrats have claimed that three fig leaves mitigate this embarrassing spectacle:   (1) "The Senate has already passed a budget!"  False. The Senate has not passed a...
