    Washington • The state-owned oil company of Azerbaijan secretly funded an all-expenses-paid trip to a conference at Baku on the Caspian Sea in 2013 for 10 members of Congress and 32 staff members, according to a confidential ethics report obtained by The Washington Post. Three former top aides to President Barack Obama appeared as speakers at the conference. Lawmakers and their staff members received hundreds of thousands of dollars' worth of travel expenses, silk scarves, crystal tea sets and Azerbaijani rugs valued at $2,500 to $10,000, according to the ethics report. Airfare for the lawmakers and some of their spouses...

    Stand With Arizona ^ | 08-17-2013 | John Hill
    by John HillStand With ArizonaThe border is “safer than ever”. So DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano has told us the past four years. Again and again. Barack Obama has mocked those who say the border is unsafe: “Maybe they’ll need a moat. Maybe they’ll want alligators in the moat. They’ll never be satisfied.” But for Texans, the Rio Grande is wide open - thanks to Federal failure to secure it  - and is a growing threat to the safety of citizens and law enforcement, on land and water. Wide open...and violent, as a Congressional delegation visiting the border found out this week. Three Republicans...

The purchase of thousands of fully automatic rifles for he DHS should also be explained.

    The Larsen campaign has released a short animation on Leonard Lance's vote for the Cap and Trade Bill and its disastrous consequences for the citizens of New Jersey.Available on the campaign website (http://davidlarsenforcongress.com/index.php/cap_and_trade_in_congressional_district_7), the animation highlights how Lance sided with Democrats House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate President Harry Reid in voting for Cap and Trade. Lance was one of only eight Republicans to vote for the bill. Cap and Trade places restrictions or caps on the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) manufacturers and other businesses can emit, forcing industry to purchase permits to offset the CO2 they are producing....

    Today I attended what was billed on Conservatives for Patients' Rights as a Town Hall for my local Congresscritter, Leonard Lance. Unfortunately, Congressman Lance was not there, and the 100 or so irate voters who turned up were informed by his somewhat bewildered staffer that this was a "Mobile Office", intended to deal with constituent service issues, like late Social Security checks and the like. Well, we were not going to let the opportunity go to waste, and there was a cordial, if somewhat heated, discussion. Every single person who showed up opposed the Democrat plan. So, all in all,...

    House Democrats were surprised at the number of Republican votes they won on the razor close climate change vote, which allowed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to let a few more Democrats cast their own no votes. In what Democrats are readily admitting was their toughest vote since they took back power in 2007, the eight Republican votes proved critical to letting Pelosi hand out as many free passes as she could to members who thought that it would be too difficult to selling the bill in their districts.   The climate change bill passed 219-212, by just two votes...

    NY Times ^ | June 30, 2009 | By ALEX KAPLUN
    In the wake of last week's landmark passage of the House climate bill, conservatives have focused their fury on the handful of Republicans who voted in favor of the sweeping legislation. The eight Republicans are Mark Kirk of Illinois; Mike Castle of Delaware; Mary Bono Mack of California; Dave Reichert of Washington; John McHugh of New York; and Frank LoBiondo, Leonard Lance and Chris Smith of New Jersey. Rush Limbaugh on his radio show yesterday accused the eight of voting for the bill sponsored by Democrats Henry Waxman of California and Edward Markey of Massachusetts because of Wall Street's influence...

    Climate Change: A switch of four Republican votes would have defeated Waxman-Markey, the Democrats' global warming legislation. But like the Clinton Btu tax, the bill could die in the Senate and turn the House over to the GOP. What were these RINOs thinking? The GOP is supposed to be the party of low taxes and free markets. Rep. Mike Castle, one of the eight offered an explanation right off of President Obama's teleprompter...Illinois Republican Mark Kirk, who has senatorial ambitions to replace the choice of impeached former Gov. Rod Blagojevich, Sen. Roland Burris, demonstrates why GOP fortunes in the Land...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 06/28/09 | Kevin Mooney
    House Republicans who received campaign donations from environmental groups helped make up the narrow margin of votes needed to send the Waxman-Markey “cap and trade” bill over to the U.S. Senate. The legislation passed by a vote of just 219 to 212 on Friday with critical assistance from eight Republicans. They are: Mary Bono Mack (Calif.), Mike Castle (Del.), Mark Kirk (Ill.), Leonard Lance (N.J.), Frank LoBiondo (N.J.), John McHugh (N.Y.), Dave Reichert (Wash.), Chris Smith (N.J.). This support proved critical with 44 Democrats voting against the regulatory scheme.

    Millennium Radio ^ | Friday, March 24, 2006 | Kevin McArdle
    State Senator Ray Lesniak thinks allowing the New Jersey Turnpike Authority to sell off a portion of the state's toll roads would produce a huge windfall and annual savings for years to some. He doesn't, however think any potential cash from the sale should be used to stave off Governor Jon Corzine's one-cent state sales tax proposal. A bill Lesniak is set to introduce a bill that would, "allow the sale of 49% of the Turnpike Authority retaining control for the State of New Jersey." The Senator claims financial experts have told him that by doing so the state will...
