    The prominent Michigan congressman who illegally forced congressional staffers to be personal servants and work on state and local campaigns is embroiled in a major sex scandal. Various media outlets report that John Conyers, the longest serving House member and ranking Democrat of the powerful Judiciary Committee, secretly settled a sexual harassment claim by an employee with taxpayer funds from his office budget. Additionally, multiple former staff members accuse the 88-year-old lawmaker of repeatedly making sexual advances toward female staff. Democratic colleagues have already called for a House Ethics Committee probe, but there’s little hope Conyers will be punished since...

    John Dingell turns 90 today, meaning he's spent barely over one-third of his life not representing Southeast Michigan in Congress. With 59 years of service, Dingell remains the longest-serving congressman in the history of the United States. His wife, Debbie, succeeded him as the representative from Michigan's 12th Congressional District when he retired in 2014. Dingell is a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom and in recent years has developed a cult following on Twitter -- not exactly a hotbed of octogenarian politicians. In honor of Dingell's birthday, greetings are pouring in from around the country. Among the more...

    The Dingell dynasty dates back to the era of FDR and there’s very little that can stop it from rolling on. Rep. John Dingell announced Monday he’s leaving the seat he took over from his father nearly six decades ago. And now his wife, Debbie Dingell, is planning to announce in the district Friday her candidacy for the open seat, according to a source close to Dingell. Dingell wasted no time putting together a campaign apparatus Monday, holding a conference call last night with her husband’s former aides. She also may sever ties with the American Automotive Policy Council where...

    Rep. John Dingell (D-Mich.), the longest-serving House member in history, will retire at the end of his term, he told the Detriot News in an interview. "I'm not going to be carried out feet first," Dingell told the paper. "I don't want people to say I stayed too long." Dingell, 88, has been in Congress since 1955 and is the longest-serving member in congressional history. The former chairman of the powerful House Energy & Commerce committee cited both health concerns and a frustration with Congress in his decision to retire. "My doctor says I'm OK. And I'm still as smart...

The 87-year-old Dearborn Democrat recently broke the record for the longest-serving congressman in history. According to the report, Dingell is considering retirement. His spokesman, Christopher Schuler, states Dingell is doing the same thing as he has always done before running for re-election, which is determining how to best serve his constituents. The News states...
  • Detroit-area members of Congress react to 'rampant rascality' over looming shutdown and Obamacare

    DETROIT, MI -- Members of Congress from Metro Detroit reacted strongly to weekend developments in the budget battle that threatens a Tuesday government shutdown, with U.S. Rep. John Dingell (D-Dearborn) using the harshest words. “This once-deliberative body has been taken over by knaves and know-nothings, content with putting partisan politics ahead of the American people," Dingell said in a statement. The Republican-controlled House approved legislation early Sunday that would fund the government through Dec. 15 while delaying Obamacare for one year. Senate Democrats rejected the proposal before the House even voted and the president has threatened a veto. Without passage...

    Democrats in House of Reps. joined J Street in supporting Obama administration's attempt to force Israel into making painful concessions Seventy-four Democrats in the House of Representatives have joined the dovish J Street organization in supporting the Obama administration's attempt to force Israel into making painful concessions to the Palestinian Authority. “In our view, support for a two-state resolution is inseparable from such support for Israel, its special relationship with the United States, and its very survival as a democratic homeland for the Jewish people,” the letter said. Seven Jewish members signed the letter, including Reps. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.), John...

    Here is video of Democrat Rep. John Dingell being asked what he would do if he could use a “magic wand” to change things in Congress. Dingell went immediately to the U.S. Senate, saying it is slower than a “snail,” and faulted the 60-vote cloture rule for making it very difficult to get anything done. Dingell said the rule has made the Senate “undemocratic.” It’s interesting that Democrats are all worried about the cloture rule when they are in the majority. But when they were in the minority, they did everything they could to block the agenda of President George...

    Keith Ellison, widely hailed as America's first Muslim congressman, could more accurately be described as CAIR and Hamas' man in Congress. Congressman Ellison has been a regular presence at CAIR fundraisers and at pro-Hamas rallies in the United States. As a former member of Farrakhan's Nation of Islam , Ellison has enough anti-semitic and Islamist credentials to satisfy anyone, and had expressed openly anti-semitic beliefs in the past. Since Ellison got his start with CAIR , his attempt to provide support for Hamas is completely unsurprising. Both Hamas and CAIR are projects of the Muslim Brotherhood, which also helped...

The Democrats don't grasp the level of anger average Americans feel toward what they are doing. They just keep stoking the fires, and digging a deeper hole for themselves. . . . . . (Watch Video)
