    According to a USA Today analysis, members on this year’s House Energy and Commerce Committee have received roughly $381,000 in Facebook-related contributions since 2007 with the average Republican getting $6,800 and the average Democrat getting $6,750. The report was based on data from the Center for Responsive Politics. Committee Chair Greg Walden (R-OR) reportedly received $27,000 while Ranking Member Frank Pallone (D-NY) got $7,000 in Facebook-related contributions. Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-CA), the Bay Area Democrat whose district is reportedly home to many Facebook executives and employees, got the most contributions, receiving $51,050 in the last decade. Walden and Pallone announced...
  • Politico Magazine Hypes Joe Kennedy III for President

    Democrats have an ancient holy ritual called Adoration of the Blessed Kennedy. Its latest iteration appears in the February 6 Politico Magazine in which their chief Washington correspondent, Edward-Isaac Dovere, breathlessly reports on the possibility of a new assumption of the presidency by a Kennedy... The wet-lipped Joe Kennedy III. Of course there are the obligatory denials by young Joe himself but Dovere's paean to the Prince-in-waiting is so chock full of saccharine as to give you a toothache while reading Kennedy Could Be the Democrats’ Best Hope (But May Not Want to Be):
  • Variety Publishes Drool-Free Review of Joe Kennedy's SOTU Response

    Newsbusters ^ | February 3, 2018 | P.J. Gladnick
    Variety published a review of Joe Kennedy III's response to President Donald Trump's State of the Union address but very noticeable avoided any mention of the elephant drool in the room. It was especially strange since Variety is an entertainment magazine in which images are important. Yet despite the fact that even completely political publications such as Politico published articles about what appeared to be either drool or very glossy lip balm on Kennedy's mouth which took the viewers' attention away from what he was saying, Variety's review of his speech sounded like a dull policy wonkish PR release from...

    Rep. Joe Kennedy (D-Mass.), a rising star in the Democratic Party, was tapped to respond to President Trump’s first State of the Union (SOTU) Address, an opportunity riddled with perils and potential. The State of the Union response can be a make-or-break opportunity for young, ambitious politicians.Although State of the Union Addresses are typically too slow-moving for many Americans, they remain one of the most watched political events of the year, and the response to the State of the Union is the minority party’s opportunity to provide an alternative vision for the future of the country.What we learned in Kennedy’s...

    The Democrats are on the run and they know it. The FISA Memo will soon be released detailing KGB style tactics to steal the 2016 Election among Hillary disciples at the FBI. The economy is booming, African-American unemployment is the lowest in history. General Mattis and Fighting Joe Dunford have smashed ISIS and sent the monsters to the gates of Hades in one year. The once blue collar, working man’s party has metastasized into a globalist elite clique attempting to keep the border open in order to bring in foreigners who are their ONLY voting block outside of coastal California,...

    Unlike the president, I don't call everything "incredible," but Trump's State of the Union address was incredible, beautifully delivered. (This guy could have a future in television!) As proof, I cite every single media outlet bitterly complaining after the speech that, as MSNBC's chyron put it: "TRUMP FAILS TO MENTION RUSSIA'S ELECTION MEDDLING IN STATE OF THE UNION." He did not address the elephant in the room! A lot of people don't like Trump, but no one was thinking that. It's only an elephant in your room, media. This is the very definition of solipsistic. What did they want him...

    Rep. JOE KENNEDY III [D-Massachusetts]: America, we carry that story on our shoulders. You swarmed to Washington last year to ensure that no parent has to worry if they can afford to save their child's life. You proudly marched together last weekend thousands deep on the streets of Las Vegas and Philadelphia and Nashville. You sat high atop our mom's shoulders and held a sign that read "Build a wall and my generation will tear it down."

    Rep. Joe Kennedy (D-MA) appeared to have an unidentified liquid coming from the side of his mouth as he delivered the official Democratic Party’s response to President Donald Trump’s first State of the Union address. As Kennedy delivered his remarks, Twitter commentators were quick to point out an unverified moisture on the side of his mouth, which they speculated could be anything from saliva to lip balm.

    Marco Rubio had his awkward pause for a gulp of water. Joe Kennedy had his ... drool? The Democratic congressman's mouth corners appeared especially shiny during his response to President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address — and many online were quick to accuse him of drooling during his address. The alternative theory was an overzealous application of lip balm. “Marco Rubio had dry-mouth during his #SOTU response in 2013. Joe Kennedy has drool-mouth,” tweeted Frank Luntz, the prominent Republican pollster. >>>More...

    Have you noticed that there’s been a word missing from all these recent stories about sexual harassment in Massachusetts politics? The missing word is "Kennedy." Talk about ignoring the elephant, or should I say donkey, in the room. There has never been a family in Massachusetts (or American) politics that's come close to the sordid record of misogyny of the Kennedys. [Snip] Chappaquiddick, anyone? Joe Kennedy II crippling a young woman on Nantucket and later his first wife accusing him of bullying her ... the list of abominable Kennedy behavior around women is practically endless. From Toodles Ryan to...

    A pair of House committees is forming a bipartisan working group of eight lawmakers to prepare for possible legislation addressing how the widespread use of encryption affects law enforcement investigations. "The bipartisan encryption working group will examine the issues surrounding this ongoing national debate," House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., and House Energy and Commerce Committee Fred Upton. R-Mich., said Monday. As chairman of the two committees that have jurisdiction over encryption issues, Goodlatte and Upton are ex officio chairs of the working group. They released that statement jointly along with Michigan Rep. John Conyers and New Jersey Rep. Steve...

    One Republican has joined eight Democrats in creating the first Transgender Equality Task Force in Congress. Created by the Congressional LGBT Equality Caucus and chaired by Rep. Mike Honda, D-CA, the task force held a hearing yesterday to discuss challenges, especially violence, that transgender advocates say are prevalent among transgendered Americans. According to the description below the Human Rights Campaign's video of the two-hour forum, the event consisted of two panels. The first was about "the lived experience of transgender victims and educating on the scope of violence experienced by transgender people." The second panel included "HRC President Chad Griffin...
  • WATCH: ‘The View’ Host Attacks Christians, Then Her Co-Host Shut Her Down

    A Washington State high school football coach has defied the school’s orders to stop praying at midfield with his players after games, something the cast of The View discussed recently. Joe Kennedy, a football coach at Bremerton High School in Washington, has been praying at the 50-yard line since 2008, and is frequently joined – voluntarily – by players. The View host Raven-Symone tried a classic left-wing tactic to attack Kennedy, calling it “unfair” to kids who choose not to pray. Her co-host however, former Full House star Candace Cameron Bure, gave a strong rebuttal and defense of religious freedom....

    Just days after alluding that conservative activists are members of the Ku Klux Klan" former US Senate Candidate Gabriel Gomez (?-Massachusetts) donated $500, the maximum allowed by law, to independent progressive Jeffrey McCormick. McCormick, while running as an independent is a major contributor to Democrats nationally. As Red Mass Group previously reported, McCormick has a long history of supporting Democratic and progressive causes. Since 2007 McCormick has donated over $70,000 to federal candidates. Almost all of which has gone to Democrats. In 2007 McCormick Donated $2,250 to the Barack Obama Campaign. In 2009 McCormick Donated $500 to the Alan Khazei...

    Amateur Diplomacy: Somebody explain to us why an official U.S. delegation was sent to Caracas for the funeral of Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez. It only boosts our enemies while diminishing America. The death of Chavez this week should have been an opportunity for the U.S. to rally global support for Venezuela's battered democrats and make a stand for democracy. Instead, the Obama administration has done all it can to validate and bolster Chavez's gangsterly minions desperate to perpetrate their Marxist kleptocracy. Already these surviving Chavistas have made clear who they are and what the U.S. can expect: President Obama called...

    The death of U.S.-bashing Venez­uelan strongman Hugo Chavez could put his pal Joseph Kennedy II’s Hub-based heating-oil-for-the-poor program out in the cold, energy experts said. With Chavez’s death from cancer yesterday, his successors must 
decide whether to continue state-run Citgo’s oil giveaways — including its agreement with Kennedy’s nonprofit Citizens Energy, which for years has given oil to the needy thanks in large part to Chavez’s largesse. “If the Citgo program goes away, Joe’s program goes away,” said Mark Wolfe of the National Energy Assistance Directors’ Association. “Venez­uela, under a different government, I’m sure they would re-evaluate all charitable givings...

    For more than half a century, the Kennedys were a force in U.S. politics. Their dominance began with John F. Kennedy’s 1960 presidential run and lasted until the death of Senator Edward M. Kennedy in 2009. The family’s return as a major political presence is not imminent, but it may not be that far off. A candidate for a Massachusetts seat in the U.S. House of Representatives is Joseph P. Kennedy III, a grandson of Robert F. Kennedy and a grandnephew of the president and the senator. He is running in a congressional district now largely represented by Representative Barney...

    As gas prices continue to soar around the country, Joe Kennedy III, the Democratic candidate for Rep. Barney Frank’s seat, wrote an online letter to supporters calling for an end to “cheap oil.” “Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush, Obama — they’ve all talked about the same thing: the need to wean ourselves off our debilitating dependence on foreign oil,” Kennedy wrote. “The cycle that allows cheap oil to trump tough choices has to stop,” he continued. “Forty years is enough.”

    It's been a busy month for Joseph Kennedy III. The son of former U.S. Rep. Joseph P. Kennedy II and grandson of the late Robert F. Kennedy is engaged to be married to Lauren Anne Birchfield, a fellow Harvard Law School graduate. The announcement comes a little more than a week after the 31-year-old Kennedy formed an exploratory committee as a first step toward a run for the U.S. House seat held by retiring Rep. Barney Frank.
