  • Charlie Dent: No truth in reports that he's considering retiring from Congress

    10/20/2015 3:55:48 PM PDT · by cotton1706 · 3 replies ^ | 10/20/15 | Laura Olson•
    With all of the intraparty drama swirling in Congress, some moderate Republicans are said to be eyeing the exit door. Lehigh Valley congressman Charlie Dent says he's not one of them. This is despite an article in the National Journal this week that suggested he is among the fed-up Republicans who are thinking of calling it quits amid the clash over the House speakership. The six-term House lawmaker told the Washington D.C.-based National Journal earlier this week that he heard some of his colleagues are thinking retiring. The article quoted Dent as saying he's "preparing as if I'm running for...

    REP. CHARLIE DENT: The next Speaker should not appease those who make unreasonable demands. There are a number of members of our conference. You cannot get the yes on anything. For them the end will be the good. In my view it's come time to marginalize those members who doesn't want to be part of the governing majority. I've said for some time that in order to pass anything out of the House we need to assemble a bipartisan coalition whether it's on the continuing resolution, the debt ceiling, we will have to assemble a bipartisan coalition. That's the reality...

    Thursday on MSNBC, in commenting on House Majority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) dropping out of the race for the Speaker of the House seat soon to be vacated by Rep. John Boehner (R-OH), Rep. Charlie Dent (R-PA) said conservatives in the House “fragged,’ Kevin McCarthy.
  • House votes to freeze federal funding for Planned Parenthood

    The House on Friday voted along party lines to freeze federal funding for Planned Parenthood after weeks of escalating tension surrounding its use of fetal tissue. In a 241-187 vote, nearly all Republicans and two Democrats approved legislation that would block Planned Parenthood's federal funding for one year, giving time for Congress to fully investigate claims of wrongdoing by the provider. Lawmakers also passed a bill tightening restrictions on abortion doctors who violate infant protections in a 248-177 vote. “What we’ve learned about Planned Parenthood is appalling, barbaric and indefensible,” Rep. Keith Rothfus (R-Pa.) said. Three Republicans broke ranks to...
  • It’s Finally Happening: The Crash Season Is Upon Us

    It’s finally happening. The crash season is upon us. We’ve seen the early signs this week with leading stocks getting the carpet swept out right from underneath them. China’s stocks are right where they were when its bubble burst 35% into July. UK stocks are in a correction. The DAX is in a correction. And the S&P 500 hasn’t busted quite as much – yet – but it’s dipped below that important level of 2,000 at the bottom of the S&P 500 Channel going back to late 2011. That strongly suggests the market has topped and the great crash is...

  • GOP lawmaker: Cruz walk off 'outrageous'

    Rep. Charlie Dent (R-Pa.) on Thursday characterized Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) as being deliberately confrontational before abruptly walking off the stage at an event meant to raise awareness for Christians in the Middle East. Cruz said some in the crowd the night before reacted with "bigotry and hatred" when he expressed his support for Israel early in his speech. "I support Israel, but what Senator Cruz did was outrageous and incendiary," Dent told The Washington Post. "He showed a true lack of sensitivity for the people he was speaking to, especially the religious leaders who were there. It was a...

    You can’t deny an economic collapse. We are about to see the greatest stock crash of our lifetimes I recently read a good article in Barron’s by Randall W. Forsyth called “Deus ex Machina 2.0: Is the Fed Trying to Take Human Nature Out of the Credit Cycle?” It was particularly interesting in light of the Bank for International Settlements’ warning that central banks are stoking financial bubbles that will burst, creating an even larger financial crisis… and that they should reverse their endless stimulus policies sooner rather than later. Music to my ears: Were they singing my song or...

    The United States cannot avoid sliding back into a recession and Federal Reserve stimulus measures and government spending in general are powerless to prevent it, said financial author Harry S. Dent Jr. The U.S. government, and consumers in general, have been on a borrowing-and-spending spree for too long now and the time has come to let the economy wane while the country pays off its debts. That doesn't happen overnight, and the Fed will surely adhere to its mandate to ensure price stability and optimal labor conditions by rolling out a monetary policy tool known as quantitative easing (QE), under...
  • Callahan proposes Human Relations Commission (a zero pick with zero ideas)

    Bethlehem Mayor John Callahan proposed Tuesday an ordinance aimed at speeding up the resolution of discrimination complaints and offering new protections for people who believe they are discriminated against based on sexual orientation or gender identity. The proposed ordinance calls for forming a seven-to-15-member Human Relations Commission that would enforce those principles when it comes to housing, employment and public accommodations. The Pennsylvania Human Relations Act already does that for complaints of discrimination based on race, age, religion, ethnicity and disability. But the state has yet to include protections for sexual orientation and gender identity.

Though Tuesday’s House primaries were greatly overshadowed by the nationally significant victories of Rep.

    "Charlie Dent’s drop in the Conservative rating was due to the fact that Charlie Dent was never a Conservative. The Washington/Beltway influence gave him no incentive to become conservative. Earmarks became acceptable instead of offensive. There may also have been a fear of opposing the ‘status quo’ because the ‘Party’ may not support his re-election bid...."

    To most people, George and Hank are just mules that pull a canal boat. But to Transportation Security Administration officials, they're a matter of national security. The people who dress up in 19th century garb and lead George and Hank along the Lehigh Canal towpath in Easton's Hugh Moore Park are now required, under federal law, to secure biometric Transportation Worker Identification Credentials from the TSA -- just like every other Coast Guard-certified boat operator. And so far, despite efforts from U.S. Rep. Charlie Dent, TSA officials aren't budging on that requirement. "It's probably a very good step for operators...

    U.S. Reps. Charlie Dent (R) and Leonard Lance (R) continue to be the targets of a national Democratic organization because of their votes against the $787 billion economic stimulus package. This week, it's Dent in the spotlight. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee will make automated calls to Lehigh Valley residents, criticizing the congressman for his vote on the recovery bill. "Did you know Congressman Charlie Dent voted against President Obama's economic recovery plan, endorsed by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce?" a transcript of the call says. "Dent's empty rhetoric can't hide that he voted to raise the AMT tax on...

    WASHINGTON - For months, Hillary Rodham Clinton has been running her presidential campaign as a front-runner, establishing an image of steady inevitability. Barack Obama unsteadied her. By raising a dazzling $32.5 million and outpacing Clinton by $10 million in primary election money, Obama succeeded in making his chief rival look mortal. Clinton still leads in national polls and is strong in early primary states like New Hampshire and Florida. Obama now leads in fundraising and number of donors — an impressive 258,000 during the first six months of the year. Neither ensures success in the voting booth. But both Democrats...
  • Black Hole Puts Dent In Space-time

    A spinning black hole in the constellation Scorpius has created a stable dent in the fabric of spacetime, scientists say. The dent is the sort of thing predicted by Albert Einstein's theory of general relativity. It affects the movement of matter falling into the black hole. The spacetime-dent is invisible, but scientists deduced its existence after detecting two X-ray frequencies from the black hole that were identical to emissions noted nine years ago. The finding will allow scientists to calculate the black hole's spin, a crucial measurement necessary for describing the object's behavior. Blinking X-rays Black holes form when very...

    After three years in litigation, the Isla Vista Recreation and Park District has found itself on the losing end of a lawsuit filed by the Santa Barbara Libertarian Party — a lawsuit that has already taken a $250,000 bite out of the IVRPD’s modest budget. The lawsuit began in November 2001 when Robert Bakhaus, secretary for the local office of the Libertarian Party, sued the IVRPD Board of Directors for committing several violations of the Brown Act, California’s law requiring all meetings of local legislative bodies be open to the public. In a Dec. 23, 2004 decision, Santa Barbara County...

    Though Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger once again used his political brawn to influence state ballot measures, even he could not alter California's legislative map during the recent election, according to a pair of independent pollsters who have been tracking California elections for decades. Mark Baldassare of the Public Policy Institute of California and Mark DiCamillo of the Field Poll weighed in Tuesday on trends that emerged from the recent election, agreeing that the Republican governor had a dramatic effect on the outcome of some key ballot measures - particularly the last-minute plunge in support for Proposition 66's effort to soften California's...

    Revelations that the peak British intelligence committee warned of risks in disarming Saddam Hussein have generated much ado about very little. And Labor is on a hiding to nothing by reprising the case against the war to disarm Iraq - especially when the evidence for the argument that the Government put Australia at risk is so thin. In February, the British committee advised an invasion increased the risk of weapons of mass destruction from Iraq's arsenal falling into the hands of terrorists. The committee was doing its job, advising its ministerial masters of all the possible consequences that could flow...

    A week's worth 9-11 smear-mongering by leading Democrats and their media handmaidens has failed to dent President Bush's popularity, according to the latest CNN-USA Today-Gallup poll. More than three-quarters of those surveyed gave Bush a positive job approval rating, despite an onslaught of politically motivated accusations that administration officials failed to connect the dots on intelligence data that could have forewarned of the 9-11 attacks. Sixty percent of those surveyed said the information available before the attacks would not have been enough for administration officials to have predicted what was coming. Nineteen percent said the Bush administration made "an understandable...
