  • GOP Slams Trump: Not Accepting Election Results Would Be 'Beyond the Pale'

    10/20/2016 9:17:11 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 143 replies
    Donald Trump's stunning refusal to say whether he will accept the outcome of the presidential election has created chasms in an already fractured Republican Party. When asked during Wednesday's final presidential debate whether he would accept the results of an election that he has repeatedly claimed is "rigged," Trump replied that he would "keep you in suspense." "I will look at it at the time. I'm not looking at anything now. I'll look at it at the time," Trump told moderator Fox News' Chris Wallace.

    The populist uprising against phony ďfree tradeĒ and Republicans who love it has taken its first scalp. Rep. Randy Forbes, GOP establishment stalwart and longtime Obamatrade supporter from Virginiaís 2nd Congressional District, will soon be unemployed. Voters rejected him in favor of his primary opponent Scott Taylor, who stridently opposed Obamatrade.

    Just as GOP front-runner Donald Trump continued to shore up delegates, winning several Super Tuesday states, some top Republican strategists and donors began to line up behind a new effort to halt the Trump campaign's momentum. Jeb Bush's former communications director, Tim Miller, announced Tuesday that he would be joining the Our Principles PAC, an anti-Trump effort. Miller will focus on opposition research that will go to expanding the PAC's advertising campaigns - including research targeting endorsers and surrogates like Chris Christie. Other strategists and big name donors - like technology executive Meg Whitman, billionaire Todd Ricketts, and hedge fund...

    A Tale of Two Shiftys‚Äô There is a bigger controversy about to break wide-open that‚Äôs potentially far more significant than Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell approving Nikki Haley‚Äôs non-subtle attack on GOP front runner Donald Trump. That bigger controversy is the Spanish version of the GOP State of the Union rebuttal containing an ‚Äúamnesty pledge‚Äú.

    Speaker of the House Rep.

    Wisconsin Republican Rep. Paul Ryan was elected on Thursday to serve as the next speaker of the House ‚ÄĒ a vote that followed weeks of uncertainty and came on the heels of the House passage of a sweeping two-year bipartisan budget deal. Ryan is expected to call for a renewed effort to make the House function as a great deliberative body again. And he asked members to put the concerns of working families front and center. "We have nothing to fear from honest differences honestly stated," Ryan was expected to say in prepared remarks. "If you have ideas, let's hear...

    For another thing, conservatives will almost surely see this as a betrayal. The administration came up with the idea of sequestration, and it turned out to be only tangible victory Republicans could claim on spending. You might remember the 2010 Pledge to America that promised to roll back government spending to pre-stimulus/bailout levels, cutting at least $100 billion in the first year after taking power. Republicans failed to achieve this improbable goal. And almost every year since, government spending has gone up, though the GOP keeps adding seats by promising to achieve the opposite. So the central question is: how...

    A month ago Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) warned conservatives about rumors of John Boehnerís Final Cave. Watch it below: ďIf it is correct that the Speaker, before he resigns, has cut a deal with Nancy Pelosi to fund the Obama Administration for the rest of its tenure, to fund Obamacare, to fund executive amnesty, to fund Planned Parenthood, to fund implementation of its Iran deal.

    The Obama administration released its spring regulatory agenda Friday, including its costliest regulation to date, just as Americans are getting ready to celebrate the long Memorial Day weekend. The Spring 2015 Unified Agenda and Regulatory Plan includes more than 2,300 regulations that are in a variety of phases and also includes the administration's plans for implementing the various regulations going forward, The Daily Caller is reporting. This is not the first time the Obama administration has released its regulatory agenda right before a major holiday, when such things might go unnoticed. In 2014, the fall regulatory agenda was released right...
  • Wonít It Be A Kick When The NRSC Has To Protect These Candidates?

    04/07/2014 6:05:25 AM PDT · by cotton1706 · 10 replies
    NRSC Chairman set off a bit of a firestorm after he used a tactic of the left to attack Chris McDaniel who is challenging Thad Cochran in the Mississippi Republican Senate primary. Cochran has been in the Senate since 1978 and started in Congress when I was in diapers, which is long enough if you ask me. But as William Jacobson pointed out, the NRSCís only job isnít just to elect more Republicans to the Senate, itís also to protect incumbents. So Iím thinking it will be a real hoot if we can get candidates like McDaniel and Matt Bevin,...

    Sen. Mark Kirk, R-Ill., is ruling out campaigning for longshot GOP Illinois U.S. Senate nominee Jim Oberweis, saying Monday he would rather ďprotectĒ his relationship with Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., and not launch a ďpartisan jihad.Ē Kirk and Durbin are a very rare couple in Washington. They get along, even when they disagree. They grew closer after Kirk suffered a severe stroke, keeping him away from the Capitol for almost a year. As a result, the two have forged for now an informal, unspoken, non-aggression pact. Kirkís more-than-kind words for Durbin will be very useful to Durbin in his race...

    The Right Scoop ^ | 3/24/2014 | Mark Levin
    Earlier today we wrote about how Cruz, Lee, Paul, Enzi, and Robertson were all standing together to strip the IMF legislation out of the aid package bill for Ukraine. As I said earlier, the IMF legislation would basically double the contribution of the US to the IMF fund while lessening Americaís influence over how that money is spent. So what does McConnell do? Does he stand with the filibuster effort? No, pushes Republicans to vote for the bill, thus making sure to get Harry Reid his 60 votes to pass the bill to prevent the filibuster led by Cruz and...

    I am blessed to have the opportunity to teach young people every day, and I often think of the world that they, and my own children, will inherit. Unfortunately, many have relied on Republican leadership that has failed time and again to bring our nation back from the road to decline. These ďleadersĒhave perfected a system that rewards Republican electoral and policy failure, and embraces betraying those who elected them in return for wealth and status ó perpetuating a status quo which sacrifices principle but never their personal power. The only accomplishment of my opponent Eric Cantor, and other members...

    Speaker of the House John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor were elevated to their positions through the hard work and votes of millions of limited government constitutional activists who made the 2010 Tea Party wave election possible. Yet from the moment he took the Speakerís gavel Boehner has been intent on diluting the influence of the limited government constitutional conservatives in his own House Republican Conference and undermining Ė indeed often actively opposing Ė the agenda that the vast majority of House Republicans campaign on and voters expect them to enact.

    How the heck did that happen? Most public polls leading up to Election Day had Democrat Terry McAuliffe coasting to victory, some by double digits, in the Virginia governorís race. Instead he squeaked by, beating Republican Ken Cuccinelli by less than 3 percentage points. -snip- McAuliffe outraised Cuccinelli by almost $15 million, and he used the cash advantage to pummel him on the airwaves. A lack of resources forced the Republican to go dark in the D.C. media market during the final two weeks. The Republican National Committee spent about $3 million on Virginia this year, compared to $9 million...

    Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell has floated a proposal for a couple years now as a last-chance way to avert a crisis and allow the president to raise the debt ceiling without congressional approval, with Congress having the ability to strip that authority with a two-thirds veto†Ė and thatís sort of what the bill to be voted on tonight provides for (see pages 24 ff. of the bill).Assuming it passes tonight, the debt ceiling will be suspended until February 7, meaning the†treasury†can borrow what it needs to fund obligations until then.

    One pocket of internal Republican opposition focused on Boehnerís plan to slash government contribution to health insurance for Capitol Hill aides. Boehner and his top lieutenants had already proposed that lawmakers, Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and political appointees at executive-branch agencies should lose the subsidy. But when Boehner expanded that ban to thousands of Hill staffers, a solid bloc of GOP lawmakers told Boehner they would oppose the bill. Boehner still tried to press on. Another rebellious faction believes repealing the medical-device tax was nothing but a giveaway to corporate America, not a part of Obamacare that should be...
