  • Immigration Fight Could Return to House This Month (they never stop!)

    Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy opened his Friday memo to House members regarding May’s legislative agenda by quoting Steve Jobs and praising Republicans for the victories they’ve overseen in the first 100 days of the 114th Congress. But GOP success stories may be overshadowed later this month when Republicans again face one of the most politically dangerous and unforgiving issues for the party: immigration. In considering the fiscal 2016 National Defense Authorization Act, members could see a repeat of last year’s meltdown over Rep. Jeff Denham’s plans to offer as an amendment his so-called ENLIST Act, which would provide a legal-status...
  • 6 House Republicans Push for Military Visa Loophole

    Should the U.S. military serve as a dumping ground or a visa mill for Obama’s unlawful amnesty program? This is not a hard question to answer for ordinary Americans who respect our sovereignty, rule of law, and are concerned about our national security. But late Wednesday night, 6 Republicans joined every Democrat on the House Armed Services Committee in blessing this illegal policy of the Obama administration. The issue at hand is Obama’s unilateral decision to place illegal aliens in the military and grant them citizenship under the Military Accessions Vital to National Interest, (MAVNI) program. The MAVNI program is...

    Perfidy. Betrayal. The degree of outright treachery on behalf of the Republican-controlled U.S. Senate — this time throwing Israel under the bus to please President Obama’s desire not to offend Iran — raises the obvious question. What was the point of electing a GOP Senate? Can someone please remind? Coming on the heels of the realization that the Senate Republicans were terrified to even oppose the nomination of Loretta Lynch to be attorney general - with McConnell himself, along with nine other Republicans - actually supporting her nomination? Which in turn followed the refusal of Senate Republicans to defund the...

    When a party wins control of the Senate during an administration of the opposing party, typically they do everything in their power to highlight sharp contrasts on critical issues--especially when the president’s party is on the wrong side of public opinion. Republicans have flipped this common sense strategy on its head and have manipulated the Senate floor process to obfuscate the party divide and shield the Democrats from embarrassing votes. Just how far will McConnell go to protect Democrats? As a means of greasing the skids for the Corker-Cardin ‘Democrat loin cloth bill’ to pass the Senate, thereby shielding Obama...

    "....Like his fellow GOP presidential hopeful, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, Cruz cannot count on a certain rapport with Latino voters simply because he is Latino himself. Trust doesn't work that way, not in life and not in politics. Hispanic voters are weary of being targeted as a desirable voter demographic to be flattered but not much more. They can spot the phony. To many critics, Cruz has tried to court two mistresses: tea party conservatives, on the one hand, and Hispanic voters whom he views as ready for takeover by the GOP. Cruz believes, with some justification, that Latinos...

    An editor for the conservative website Breitbart News on Thursday announced he will run for the House seat vacated by former Rep. Aaron Schock (R-Ill.). Mike Flynn launched his campaign for the seat representing Illinois’s 18th District from his hometown of Quincy. “The political party bosses in Washington and Springfield, and the special interests they represent, wanted a coronation for their hand-picked candidate,” Flynn said in a statement. “Yet another go-along-to-get-along seat warmer who won’t challenge the status quo.” “Central Illinois deserves a choice and as a lifelong conservative reformer, I plan to give them one.” The conservative journalist will...

    The rapid growth of the GOP presidential field is causing major headaches for party bosses ahead of a primary debate season that begins this summer. The dilemma for Reince Priebus, Republican National Committee (RNC) chairman, is stark: If the declared field grows to 18 or 20 candidates, as now looks plausible, how can those numbers be winnowed in a way that seems fair and reasonable rather than arbitrary and undemocratic? “You’ve got to prevent it from becoming a ‘WWE SmackDown’ event on national television,” said GOP strategist Ford O’Connell. “You don’t want to bump everybody off the stage, but you...

    Years overdue, photo identification will be required the next time Wisconsin voters go to the polls, for the spring elections in 2016. The U.S. Supreme Court finally settling that issue was good news, but the fight over ballot security will never be over. Congressman Mark Pocan (D-Pluto) greeted the Court’s action with a renewed call for his constitutional amendment guaranteeing a right to vote ostensibly meaningless, the proposal’s sinister nature lies in its open-ended guarantee, setting the stage to argue that there is no such thing as a reasonable condition to be imposed on exercising the franchise. His co-author Rep....
  • Democrats Still Control the Senate

    Most Americans would be shocked to learn that the Democrats still control the Senate even after Republicans won the majority last year, but it is true. Breitbart News reports: "With two minor exceptions, every single vote that has passed the U.S. Senate since the beginning of this Congress in January has passed with at least – usually more than – 93 percent of support from Democrats." Despite controlling the Senate, Republican leaders are passing bills that have more support from Democrats than Republicans. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has helped the Democrats pass funding for executive amnesty, pass the...

    After facing pressure from conservative lawmakers, House leadership has agreed to hold a vote on a measure that could strike down a Washington, D.C., anti-discrimination law that opponents say infringes on the ability of organizations to operate in accordance to their religious beliefs. “We exerted a lot of pressure in the last 48 hours to bring [the measure] to the floor,” Rep.

    In early April, Roll Call reported that state Sen. Darin LaHood is the establishment frontrunner to replace “disgraced former Rep. Aaron Schock,” and while politics may be in the junior LaHood’s blood, contrary to his claims, conservatism may not be. His father and presumed mentor is “Rep. Ray LaHood, R-Ill., who held this seat for more than a decade until 2009 — when he left Congress to serve as transportation secretary to President Barack Obama.” Yes, nothing says conservative like resigning to go to work for Barack Obama. And while LaHood the younger claims to be more conservative, his early...

    The Blue-City Model Baltimore shows how progressivism has failed urban America. April 28, 2015 You’re not supposed to say this in polite company, but what went up in flames in Baltimore Monday night was not merely a senior center, small businesses and police cars. Burning down was also the blue-city model of urban governance. Nothing excuses the violence of rampaging students or the failure of city officials to stop it before Maryland’s Governor called in the National Guard. But as order starts to return to the streets, and the usual political suspects lament the lack of economic prospects for the...

    Eugene School Board incumbent Mary Walston, who is up for re-election next month, urged neighborhood organizers of a school board candidates’ debate next week to either reschedule the debate or prevent her opponent from participating because she will be out of town. Organizers of the debate agreed to honor Walston’s request to bar her opponent from the debate — which, in turn, prompted the opponent, Colin Farnsworth, to cry foul. A substitute teacher in the Bethel, Eugene, Springfield and South Lane school districts, Farnsworth said it is “extremely unfair and undemocratic that my participation and perspective will be censored during...

    On Thursday, the Census Bureau released its most recent accounting of state government revenues across all state governments. The newly released data provides us new data points to inspect whether Sam Brownback’s tax cuts have had the intended effect. snip The crux of the issue, as sold, is not whether revenue would decline in the initial years. The question is (and was) whether the tax cuts to individual income and corporate income taxpayers would benefit the jobs market and other areas of the economy. Well, it’s early, but here’s the evidence. Interestingly, relative to other states, Kansas has seen its...

    The New York Post reports that Charity Navigator, which describes itself as “the nation’s largest and most-utilized evaluator of charities,” has added the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation to its “watch list” of problematic nonprofits. This decision wasn’t made because of the Clinton Foundation’s remarkably lucrative sideline as a uranium superstore for Russian strongmen, but because its finances are opaque and dishonest, and because such a tiny amount of the money it rakes in actually goes to charitable endeavors. “The Clinton family’s mega-charity took in more than $140 million in grants and pledges in 2013 but spent just $9...

    Let’s test your presidential election knowledge. In how many presidential elections did Bill Clinton win a majority of the popular vote? The answer, of course, is zero. That’s right. In 1992, Bill Clinton won his first presidential term with just 43 percent of the vote. Republican George H. W. Bush received 37.5 percent. Ross Perot — America’s proto-tea partier — received 18.9 percent (without receiving a single Electoral College vote). In 1996, Clinton nearly managed to claw his way over the 50 percent barrier. But he didn’t. The New Democrat eked out a second plurality victory with only 49.2 of...

    For Christian evangelical voters in Iowa this election cycle is an embarrassment of riches.

Nine Republican presidential hopefuls spoke Saturday at an event hosted by the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition, a successor to the the now-defunct Christian Coalition. They hoped to win over supporters for the state's presidential caucus, the first major event in the presidential primary. The Iowans could not agree on who did best.

    Yesterday’s Senate vote on the confirmation of Loretta Lynch, President Obama’s nominee to succeed Attorney General Eric Holder, was a classic example of why talk among conservatives of forming a third party alternative to the establishment Republican Party will not die. Not only did the usual jelly-backed Senate Republicans vote to confirm Lynch, they were led by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, whose job is, ostensibly, to be the leader of the conservative opposition to Obama and his lawless progressive agenda. In moving the Lynch nomination McConnell broke a pre-election promise that no attorney general nominee would be considered in...

The New York Times’ trolling of Ted Cruz is remarkably weak. First, a snide piece on his time debating. This is the sort of thing that some Ivy Leaguers might care about. It relies on quotes from former opponents who disliked Cruz, fails to interview his black debating partner for some reason despite using him in two photos, and suggests that his debating weaknesses include not liking when...

The newspaper spoke with several of Cruz's rival debaters who said that the presidential candidate was a powerful speaker that could be undercut by humor. He would "unravel" when competitors deployed humor against him, according to former Yale debater Austan Goolsbee (an economist who later served on President Obama's cabinet).

    Yesterday, I cited a Congressional Quarterly analysis showing that Senate Republicans have voted with Obama more than 50% since the beginning of the new Congress – more than they did while serving in the minority. But there’s more to the story. It’s not just the fact that Republicans are voting with Obama, it’s that they have deliberately ceded structural control of the chamber to Democrats. Typically, the majority party will manipulate the floor process to block initiatives from the minority party and vote on wedge issues favorable to their side – ones that embarrass those in the minority. As such,...

Those whose foreign policy stances resemble President Obama and Hillary Clinton more than Ronald Reagan’s vision of “peace through strength.” Specifically, Paul called out Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and John McCain (R-AZ) for being “Lap dogs for Obama’s foreign policy.” What he failed to drive home is that they are also lap dogs for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy. Analyzing these allegations against McCain and Graham, they all prove to be true. Paul accused McCain...

After first rolling out his new ideas on Glenn Beck’s radio program on Monday, Walker appeared on Fox News’ Megyn Kelly’s show to further elaborate on how he hopes to protect Americans economically from special interests pushing for a massive influx in cheap foreign labor from around the world. “When it comes to immigration, as...

    Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest, praised Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker—a likely 2016 GOP presidential candidate—for bringing the negative effects of a massive increase in legal immigration into the debate for the 2016 GOP nomination. “I thought it was a good statement that he made,” Sessions told reporters, according to Bloomberg’s Dave Weigel. “He was just saying, ‘I’m going to ask the question, what is it going to do for the wages and job prospects of my constituents, the American people, as I analyze how to create a proper...

    As expected, a public forum being organized by the Democratic chair of the Federal Election Commission to discuss women in politics will host a slew of liberal Democratic panelists with no Republican in sight. Last week, FEC chair Ann Ravel announced the May 12 forum which will be aimed at addressing the dearth of women in public office. But critics slammed the announcement, arguing that the FEC’s mission is to regulate campaign spending, not get to the root of who chooses to run for office. The event announcement was also seen as playing favorites with its implicit preference for female...

    Sen. Ted Cruz speaks at a gathering of Republicans in New Hampshire and sets forth a pathway to take America back through the power of the "Grassroots." Cruz talks about the grassroots "Past, Present, and Future." He demonstrates his ability to capture the imagination of an audience, was clearly a big hit in the "First-in-the-Nation" Primary State. As you listen to Cruz, you can hear the outline of a 2016 Presidential run that calls for standing firm on Conservative principles. Cruz calls for abolishing the IRS, cutting taxes, defunding and repealing ObamaCare, reducing regulations and unleashing the power of the...

    Parliamentary maneuvering and a strategic partnership between moderate Republicans and Democrats in the Montana State legislature have provided Democrats with de-facto control over the House of Representatives on two key issues this session. In a move reminiscent of the underhanded wrangling by national Democrats used to pass Obamacare in 2010, a handful “moderate” Republican legislators joined with Montana Democrats to bypass opposition by changing chamber rules to pass a state Medicaid expansion plan (SB 405) and the controversial CSKT Water Compact (SB 262). SB 405 passed the House earlier this month on a 54-42 vote. SB 262 passed 2nd reading...

    Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a likely 2016 GOP presidential candidate, pledged to protect American workers from the economic effects, not only of illegal immigration but also of a massive increase in legal immigration. During an interview with Glenn Beck, Walker became the first declared or potential 2016 GOP presidential candidate to stake out a position on immigration fully in line with that of Senate Judiciary Committee subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest chairman Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL). He also noted that he has been working with Chairman Sessions on the issue to learn more about it. Walker is now...

    Republicans took the Senate in 2014 by stressing the data that CQ Roll Call’s presidential support vote study revealed: Democrats in red states were sticking close to President Barack Obama. So here’s a surprise: the new GOP majority in 2015 is voting Obama’s way as often as they ever have. Sure, it’s early. But at this point, few expected Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky to be as accommodating as he has been. CQ Vote Watch, a new tool that offers daily reports on voting patterns, shows that Obama’s victory percentage on Senate votes where he’s taken a position...

    She’s back! It’s official. Last week Hillary Clinton threw her hat into the ring as the inevitable Democratic nominee for president again and hit the campaign trail in a “Scooby Van.” Despite Hillary’s contrived, disastrous rollout, according to Steve Kornacki’s MSNBC’s panel, as one woman to another, I say, “You go girl!” And as that aforementioned woman, I’m pleased to say that here at the Hillary 2016: Prison or POTUS? (President of the United States) campaign headquarters –that’s HILLPoP2016 for short, we’ve been ready for Hillary for a really long time.

    On Friday, the New York Times stated, in a blaring headline, that my support for Second Amendment rights is “strange.” In particular, the writer took issue with my statement that “”the Second Amendment to the Constitution isn’t for just protecting hunting rights, and it’s not only to safeguard your right to target practice. It is a constitutional right to protect your children, your family, your home, our lives, and to serve as the ultimate check against governmental tyranny — for the protection of liberty.” In addition to “strange,” the NYT described this view as “ridiculous,” “silly,” and “absurd” (methinks the...

    They’ve stood by and waited while establishment Republicans staged a noisy First in the Nation Leadership Summit in New Hampshire which drew 19 presidential hopefuls and a crush of media this weekend. Now they are ready to rumble: a feisty group of Granite State conservatives will move in. Literally. On Sunday, the 603 Alliance - activists loyal to founding principles and the Constitution - will stage a daylong summit in the very same hotel. They intend to winnow out the authentic conservative candidates - with much ado. “On April 19, in the city of Nashua, New Hampshire, the live-free-or-die state,...

    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), a 2016 GOP presidential candidate, said he believes that President Barack Obama’s first executive amnesty for so-called DREAMers—the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)—is “important” and he won’t reverse it himself if elected president. He delivered these remarks in a Spanish-language interview he gave to Univision’s Jorge Ramos. “I believe DACA is important. It can’t be terminated from one moment to the next, because there are already people benefiting from it,” Rubio said in Spanish on Ramos’s television program, according to an English translation provided by the media service Grabien. “But yes, it is going to...

    Reuters) – Less than a week after announcing his 2016 campaign for president, Republican Senator Marco Rubio of Florida doesn’t need to worry about money. It’s as good as in the bank. “Marco Rubio will have the resources necessary to run a first-class campaign, that’s already been determined,” said billionaire Florida auto dealer Norman Braman, a former Jeb Bush supporter who is now one of Rubio’s highest-silhouette donors. Annandale Capital founder George Seay, who is hosting a Rubio fundraiser with the moneyed Dallas elite at his 7,000-square-foot, seven-bath home on Tuesday, said: “Marco has had zero trouble raising money.” At...

    Illustration by Sarah Rodgers/ The Daily BeastWhile the rest of the GOP field plays nice, Scott Walker is very much on the attack—and he’s not making many friends in the process. In the waning days of the 2014 elections, Chris Christie arrived in Ohio to campaign for his fellow Republican John Kasich. At a rally for over 700 people in the town of Independence, the Ohio governor said of his New Jersey counterpart that, “among all the governors, he’s my best friend.” The audience let out a collective “awww.” The two were shown the next day on the front of...
