  • Trucking industry leader: Tea party a 'corrosive' force (RINO former KS Gov. Bill Graves)

    The Politico ^ | October 21, 2013 | Kevin Robillard
    So much for the great trucker-tea party alliance. Barely a week after conservative activists were counting on a massive protest by truck drivers to snarl the Beltway and bring President Barack Obama to heel, the head of the nation’s largest trucking industry organization denounced the right-wing movement Monday as a “corrosive” force that threatens the business community’s ties to the GOP. “What’s most alarming is the collapse of the Republican Party and the emergence of the conservative wing of the party, most often referred to as the Tea Party, and its emergence as a very corrosive force,” American Trucking Associations...

    A Johnson County Republican and second cousin of President Barack Obama is expected to move ahead Tuesday with planning for a primary challenge to U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts, of Kansas. Milton Wolf, who advocates for a divinely inspired return to limited government and individual liberty, invited supporters to a "major announcement" regarding the 2014 Senate campaign at an Overland Park hotel. The event will feature a performance by “American Idol” singer Krista Branch. Wolf, a 42-year-old physician and a political novice, could highlight in Kansas the division playing out nationally among tea party conservatives and others in the Republican Party....

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday linked outgoing Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) to one of the “saddest” Senate votes in years and suggested DeMint’s values won't be missed on Capitol Hill. Pelosi criticized the resigning South Carolina lawmaker and other GOP senators for voting Tuesday against Senate ratification of a United Nations treaty on rights for the disabled. “For them [DeMint and other treaty opponents] to slap the face of our veterans, of people with disabilities, of families with children with disabilities, that was one of the saddest days,” Pelosi said in the Capitol, taking care to avoid...
  • Booted House members complain to Boehner

    It’s becoming clearer why Schweikert, Huelskamp, Rep. Walter Jones (R-N.C.) and Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) were yanked from their committee posts. It wasn’t ideological, sources involved with the negotiations said. Instead, they said, the lawmakers lost their spots because they worked against their colleagues or leadership. Huelskamp, for example, voted against Rep. Paul Ryan’s (R-Wis.) budget in committee, in addition to trying to bring down the farm bill. Other members affected by the discipline voted against measures in committee, as well.

    A research attorney for a Kansas Court of Appeals judge has been temporarily suspended from her job pending an investigation about tweets she posted during a court hearing in former Attorney General Phill Kline’s ethics case. Ron Keefover, spokesman for the judicial branch, said Sarah Peterson Herr was suspended Friday while an investigation is conducted. She is a research attorney for Judge Christel Marquardt. The tweets were posted Thursday during a Kansas Supreme Court hearing deciding whether Kline’s law license should be indefinitely suspended for his conduct during investigations of abortion providers. The tweets predicted that Kline would be disbarred...

    Senate President Steve Morris' performance on the state legislative stage will draw to an involuntary close after a 20-year run. The southwest Kansas Republican's place in the Capitol will be taken in January by someone voters thought offered more robust conservative credentials. Morris was driven into retirement along with seven other moderate Republicans in the Senate. All lost August primaries. It remains to be seen how Democrats fare in November, but the Senate will undoubtedly be led by members loyal to the conservative label.

    House Speaker Mike O'Neal's retirement from elective office afforded the 28-year legislative veteran an opportunity to assess his personal political transformation and movement of the Republican Party to dominance in Kansas. The Hutchinson attorney who defeated an incumbent Democrat in 1984 on an economic development platform said he would emerge with a more conservative view of public policy. He said this journey coincided with growth in conservative sentiment among Kansas voters — especially on state budget issues.

    Mitt Romney's presidential campaign would like to be focusing its attacks on Democratic President Barack Obama around now. But after failing to seize control of the Republican nomination race on "Super Tuesday," Romney cannot shake off rival Rick Santorum, whom he criticized on Thursday as a political insider. Opening up a new front against Santorum, the Romney campaign accused him of being a lobbyist in his home state of Pennsylvania even before he went to Washington in 1991. Romney's campaign also attacked Santorum for holding regular meetings with lobbyists as a Senate leader, part of the Republican "K Street Project"...

    There's been much in the news lately regarding the "birther movement," or more specifically, whether the Big First congressional candidates believe President Obama is a legitimate U.S. citizen. The controversy began when the Hutchinson News withdrew their endorsement for Tracey Mann, following radio comments in which Mann said Obama "needs to come forth with his papers and show everyone that he is an American citizen." The Hays Daily News asked all six Republican candidates to weigh in on the matter. Here are their responses: Jim Barnett: "First of all, there are many important issues facing our nation.

    Kansas Republicans go to the polls next month to choose their nominee for the U.S. Senate seat now held by Republican Sam Brownback, who is leaving Congress to run for governor. And the Aug. 3 GOP primary is likely to determine the next senator from Kansas. The state hasn't sent a Democrat to the Senate since 1932. Brownback's would-be successors, Jerry Moran and Todd Tiahrt — both GOP members of the House — share what to the naked eye would seem almost identical voting records in Congress. Nonetheless, each is trying to convince voters that he has the most conservative...

"As our nation faces unprecedented challenges, we must have new energy and a fresh response" Yoder said. "Wasteful overspending in Washington threatens to bankrupt our nation's future. Government must learn to live within its means and we must endeavor to reduce bureaucracy and barriers to success."

    Patricia Lightner, a conservative Republican and former state representative, is campaigning for a position in the Third Congressional District, and has formally launched a campaign web site. The seat is held by Rep. Dennis Moore, a Democrat, who has been under public scrutiny lately for what critics say is his lack of accountability and availability to his constituents. Lightner said she was motivated to enter the race out of a desire to promote liberty in individualism, freedom of economic choice and the right to life. Lightner said these rights have been compromised by the Democratic majority in Washington, including Moore.

Could the ghosts of Bill Scherle (1974), Roger Jepsen (1984), Tom Tauke (1990), Jim Lightfoot (1996) and Greg Ganske (2002) be scaring off credible GOP challengers? Could 2008 be the year that Harkin, finally, gets the same sort of free ride from Republicans that Democrats have been giving Chuck Grassley for 20 years? Of course in Republican circles...

The 2nd Congressional District includes west Lawrence, Topeka, Manhattan and much of southeast Kansas.

    It was June 2005, and state lawmakers were struggling through a tense special session after the Kansas Supreme Court ordered additional funding for schools. When the opportunity arose --"when we were not doing anything, which was often the case" -- Jim Barnett, state senator and internal medicine physician, would slip away to his family's farm near Emporia to finish planting soybeans. His father's death at age 86 the previous month had left the job incomplete. The hectic pace is not unusual for Barnett, candidate for the Republican nomination for governor. A senator since 2001, he has continued to see patients...

Also, our sources tell us that Olathe State Senator Kay O'Connor is considering running for Secretary of State against incumbent Ron Thornburgh. Evidently, O'Connor sent out “secret” letters to supporters about her S.O.S. desires. We're not exactly sure what Thornburgh has done to deserve a primary...
