    President Donald Trump's racially fraught comments about a deadly neo-Nazi rally have thrust into the open some Republicans' deeply held doubts about his competency and temperament, in an extraordinary public airing of worries and grievances about a sitting president by his own party. Behind the high-profile denunciations voiced this week by GOP senators once considered Trump allies, scores of other, influential Republicans began to express grave concerns about the state of the Trump presidency. In two dozen interviews with Associated Press reporters across nine states, Republican politicians, party officials, advisers and donors expressed worries about whether Trump has the self-discipline...

    Snip Theres no such narrative around Eric Cantor, the former Republican House majority leader from Richmond who was spectacularly ousted in his 2014 primary by a no-name economics professor. Lets back up a moment. Remember the summer of 2013, when the Defund Obamacare Tour drove the news cycle all through Congresss August recess? The town halls organized by the political arm of the Heritage Foundation enlivened the base and furthered what had been the GOPs core message since 2010that Obamacare was bad and, if Americans helped Republicans hold both chambers, it could be repealed. Cantor helped create that perception. Earlier...

    Will Paul Ryan be Cantored by a bike rider with arm tattoos in his 2018 primary challenge or be taken out in the general by a Democrat whose twitter bona fides cover important coalition pools such as Father, Army veteran, Ironworker, cancer survivor? Paul Nehlen, who lost to Ryan in their primary race, called the Speaker "a soulless globalist from the Democrat Wing of the Uni-Party!"

  • White House takes measured stance on Israeli aid ship attack (But not Hillary)

    The Hill ^ | June 1, 2010 | Sam Youngman and Jared Allen
    The White House and lawmakers on Tuesday refrained from condemning a deadly Israeli attack on Gaza-bound ships carrying humanitarian aid. White House press secretary Robert Gibbs would not go much further than a United Nations Security Council resolution that condemned the loss of life without criticizing Israels actions. Gibbs echoed the resolution calling for the U.N. investigation of the incident to be prompt, impartial, credible and transparent. At least 10 civilians were killed in the attack, and many were wounded. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was scheduled to visit President Barack Obama at the White House on Tuesday, but he...

    In a recent op/ed in the Washington Post, columnist Eugene Robinson argued that “it is no longer possible to think of the Republican Party as a coherent political force.” Robinson further argued the current Republican Party was “factionalized and out of control.” Unfortunately, Robinson was correct in his assessment of today’s Republican Party, and that should worry us all.

Contrary to Rubio's stunning claim that his Senate-passed plan was "not headed towards becoming law," Sessions says that Rubio's amnesty plan "was on the verge of being passed. Paul Ryan had the votes to get it passed."

    Jeb Bush's backers have watched as Mr. Bush debuted his White House bid amid chatter of inevitability, then plummeted in polls. They have seen him bungle a debate performance, losing a pivotal exchange to his one-time protege, Senator Marco Rubio. And they have observed as Mr. Bush, in small towns and big cities, has proved a much less gifted campaigner than they ever anticipated. So on Saturday, as many of the Bush faithful descended on the Biltmore Hotel near Miami to hear from Mr. Bush and his team, his aides tried to put their most optimistic spin on a campaign...

    Jeb Bush has a strong performance on Tuesday night's GOP debate stage and was 'really the serious candidate on stage" with his command of domestic and international policy, former Rep. Eric Cantor said Wednesday. "Clearly Jeb was back," the one-time House Majority Leader told CNN's "New Day" program. "Jeb clearly was prepared. He was the one most focused on identifying where conservative policies play out and benefit working people of this country. And was prepared to take on Hillary and did so last night more so than anybody." Bush believes in commonsense conservative policy, Cantor continued, versus what's become the...

    One of the most shocking upsets in 2014 was the primary defeat of the powerful Republican Majority Leader Eric Cantor by tea party candidate David Brat. Brat was an underfunded unknown economics professor and yet battled successfully against Cantor's multi-million dollar campaign for reelection to Congress. His young campaign managers, Gray Delany and Zach Werrell, have written a great book released this week titled How to Bag A RINO.

    It was as if John Boehner had a confession to make after all these years of troubled conscience. His recent resignation had the effect of suggesting the pro wrestling in Congress is fake (emphasis mine). The Washington Republicans, dear fans are supposed to lose after making some effort to heighten the drama to the Capital Democrats. All those heart stopping moments toward the end lost due to some error or a sudden reversal of fortune well that was in the script. Republican Eric Cantor, writing in the New York Times, argues that there was no dishonor to...

    House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) appeared on one Sunday show — CBS’ “Face the Nation” — after his Friday surprise announcement that he’d be resigning from Congress in about a month.And Boehner used the opportunity to make another firm announcement: There will be no government shutdown this week, despite the efforts of some conservatives to block Planned Parenthood funding. “The Senate is expected to pass a continuing resolution [this] week. The House will take up the Senate bill. We will also take up a select committee to investigate these horrific videos that we have seen from abortion clinics in several...

    Grassroots voters in 2014 apparently foiled a secret plan by House Speaker Rep. John Boehner to give his top job to the partys House Majority Leader, Rep. Eric Cantor, who is a close ally of the GOPs establishment wing. The plan suddenly collapsed last June after Cantors constituents in Virginias 7th district rejected him in favor of his primary challenger, economics professor Rep. Dave Brat. Brat won by blasting Cantor for mimicking Senator Sen. Marco Rubios effort to pass the mass-amnesty bill that would further raise high immigration levels. The Speakers plan was to serve only through the end of...
