    Organizers of Wausau's Labor Day parade say Republican lawmakers aren't welcome in this year's event. The Marathon County Central Labor Council sponsors the September 5th parade. The council includes about 30 local unions from the Marathon County area. Council president Randy Radtke says they choose not to invite elected officials who have "openly attacked worker's rights" or did nothing to intervene.

    (Reuters) - Illinois Democratic Governor Pat Quinn signed into law on Friday a new congressional district map that could reverse gains Republicans made in the state in 2010 midterm elections. Democrats were able to leverage their control of the General Assembly and a Democratic governor to approve a new election map for 2012 that analysts said could help Democrats win at least three more congressional seats in the state

    Back in June, we reported that California Congressman Brad Sherman (D) was circulating a letter to his fellow Democrats to introduce legislation to repeal “Right-to-Work” laws in 22 states. Now, with less than a month before the mid-term elections and five weeks before a lame-duck session in Congress, Sherman has introduced legislation to eliminate state Right to Work laws all across America. Currently, there are 22 states in the U.S. that have laws where workers who are employed at companies that are unionized have a choice whether or not to join or pay the union. These states are known as...

    Well, it's taken a while for our own home-grown, corn-fed Ohioan, John Boehner to get some Lamestream Media coverage, but President Obama has catapulted "our" John to the stage of national attention, mentioning him by name at least eight times in a Cleveland speech last week. Representative and Republican Minority Whip (And, I do mean "whip") Boehner was also diginified in that POTUS was only making a spontaneous speech at a Cleveland University, where local students had to be begged to attend, reportedly, because John Boehner had recently been in Ohio whipping up the masses against Obama's Recovery Summer...
  • In House Ethics Battles, a Partywide Threat

    08/02/2010 9:16:42 AM PDT · by lbryce · 4 replies · 1+ views
    WASHINGTON — By defiantly pushing for full-fledged ethics trials, Representatives Charles B. Rangel and Maxine Waters are raising the prospect of a spectacle focusing on Congressional corruption this fall, just as Democrats are fighting to hold on to their majority in an election already defined by distrust of Washington. Neither lawmaker, both Democrats, faces electoral jeopardy. Mr. Rangel, who was charged on Thursday by the House ethics committee with 13 violations, including failing to pay taxes on rental income from his Dominican villa, represents a safe district in Harlem. Ms. Waters, who is accused of using her office to help...

    (AP) With a new face and a 60th vote for breaking a Republican filibuster, Senate Democrats are preparing to restore jobless checks for 2.5 million people whose benefits ran out during a congressional standoff over deficit spending. President Obama says, "It's time to do what's right." But first, Obama and his Democratic allies are pressing for maximum political advantage, blaming Republicans for an impasse that halted unemployment checks averaging $309 a week for those whose eligibility had expired.

    See Video Did Press Secretary Robert Gibbs know he was about to set off a firestorm this Sunday when he “stated the obvious” to David Gregory that there “are enough seats in play” for the GOP to take the House this November? Chances are, yes. This administration if far too media savvy to think a quote like that would do anything but set off a firestorm. Their motivation for doing so, however, remains unclear. I’ve noted in earlier posts I thought this was the administration’s subtle attempt to have its cake and eat it too. Mediaite’s Tommy Christopher thinks this...

    If imitation is the highest form of flattery, the "tea party" movement must be honored. In an effort to replicate the tea party's success, 170 liberal and civil rights groups are forming a coalition that they hope will match the movement's political energy and influence. They promise to "counter the tea party narrative" and help the progressive movement find its voice again after 18 months of foundering. The large-scale attempt at liberal unity, dubbed "One Nation," will try to revive themes that energized the progressive grass roots two years ago. In a repurposing of Barack Obama's former campaign slogan, organizers...

Animal shelter director Beth Vesco-Mock said the rats - some sickly and displaying evidence of fighting - are about the size of a four- to five-month-old kitten.

    Harlem Democrat Charles Rangel now says he will step down as chairman of the powerful House Ways and Means Committee, NBC News has learned. He may make the move as early as tonight and Michigan Democratic Rep Sander Levin will temporarily take over the committee. Some details still need to be ironed out, but sources said Rangel has been pushed to step down before the House voted on a bill to forcefully strip him of the coveted chairmanship. Rangel has been under fire ever since an ethics committee released a report Thursday that found that he violated House rules by...

    President Barack Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid remain optimistic the Senate can wrap up the healthcare overhaul in time for Christmas, but few signs suggest that package will be ready in 2009. “I think it's going to pass out of the Senate before Christmas,” Obama said during an interview aired Sunday on CBS News’s “60 Minutes.” The Senate will pick up the debate this week after taking a break to pass a spending bill to keep the government running. But Reid (D-Nev.) will have to find a way to get 60 votes with Republicans united against the bill...

    I want you to go to Constitutionally Speaking (CS) ... but not quite yet. As I have written numerous times, most members of Congress (past and present), knew that Obama was constitutionally ineligible for the office of President and remained silent. The names include Barney Frank, Maxine Waters, Shelia Jackson Lee, Joe Scarborough, Ted Kennedy, Orrin Hatch .... the list is endless. This is the dirty little secret known to most everyone in Washington, in the MSM, and in the legal community. It was purposely kept from the general public. The CS series provides exhaustive details of Congress' extensive knowledge...
