  • Democrats must denounce the rise in violence against Republicans

    As masked leftists use clubs to shut down free speech at Berkeley and elsewhere, Democrats have unfortunately been reticent to condemn the activity. But Antifa violence is not the only kind of condemnable disruptive activity. Democrats should also disavow the organized campaign to harass Republican congressmen and stop Republican town halls. One group in the thick of this battle is “Indivisible.” The group was founded by a former staffer for Democratic Rep. Lloyd Doggett, and its COO, Matt Traidi, is the research coordinator for the Service Employees International Union. Indivisible provides these instructions on how to prevent other town hall...

    President Donald Trump signed a record number of executive orders in his first week in office. Many of those orders have the President’s political opponents bracing for battle. “We have our work cut out for us,” said Congressman Lloyd Doggett. The Austin Democrat says he will work to stop policies that could hurt Texans. “I see my role as being part of the loyal opposition,” Doggett added.
  • Kerry and the Iran Surrender Caucus need to get their stories straight

    Jerusalem Post ^ | 05/14/2015 - 4:02 PM EDT | JOHNATHAN GREENBERG
    One hundred and fifty members of Congress – all Democrats and, among them, most of the small group of bitterly anti-Israel lawmakers – signed a letter supporting President Obama’s diplomatic efforts vis-à-vis the Iranian nuclear weapons program. Authored by Reps. Jan Schakowsky (Illinois), Lloyd Doggett (Texas), and David Price (North Carolina), the letter exemplifies the hyper-partisanship that has driven the left wing of the Democrat party on this issue even as that wing has cried “partisan extremism” at the responses from Republicans. As if trying to prove Churchill right, this Iran Surrender Caucus, whenever presented with a choice between dishonor...
  • Top Dems voice 'great skepticism' over Iran nuclear deal (trust Hussein?)

    Several top Democrats are voicing grave reservations over the Obama administration's emerging deal governing the future of Iran's nuclear program. Reps. Nita Lowey (D-N.Y.) and Ted Deutch (D-Fla.) said they welcome a discussion on the framework agreement unveiled Thursday, but harbor deep doubts that the Iranians can be trusted to make good on their commitments. "I greet any deal with Iran with great skepticism given its deceptive history and ongoing destabilizing and dangerous activities," Deutch, the ranking member of the House Foreign Affairs subpanel on the Middle East, said in a statement. "I remain deeply concerned as to how a...
  • Liberals press Pelosi, Obama for vote on Syrian air strikes

    09/14/2014 4:16:18 AM PDT · by Tailgunner Joe · 13 replies ^ | September 14, 2014 | Mike Lillis
    A growing chorus of liberal Democrats is pushing President Obama to get Congress's explicit approval before launching missile strikes into Syria. The pressure from supporters on Capitol Hill is not only a headache for Obama, but also puts House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and other top Democrats in the difficult position of bucking a broad segment of their own caucus in order to protect an ally in the White House. Scores of Democrats had signed letters a year ago advocating against military strikes targeting the forces of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad without congressional backing. Thirteen months later the enemy...

    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...

    I received a phone call from former Marine Captain Kelly Hoag the other day, asking if I could help get the word out about a challenger for Pelosi's sock-puppet, Lloyd Doggett. Since I know Captain Hoag, having met her at the 9/12 March on DC and having had the honor of escorting her and 4 other wounded Marines during the weekend festivities, I was more than happy to lend a hand. George Morovich is mounting a campaign to unseat Doggett and give us one more voice of reason in the US House of Representatives. We need all the conservative voices...

    In a very orderly discussion of the Health care issue on Saturday 8/8/2009 Congressman Doggett was asked about mandating all Congressmen, Senators, government workers and the President to be required to use the same health plan as the American Public. His committee has studied health care for 2 years but says that such provisions are not part of the overall plan. Both sides of the healthcare reform issue cheered when this was brought up to the Congressman.

    AUSTIN, February 3, 2006 — A trusted aide of U.S. Rep. Lloyd Doggett has admitted to taking at least $166,000 from his campaign coffers and thousands more from other groups, her attorney confirmed on Thursday. Kristi Willis is a Democratic consultant in Austin who worked for the congressman in his re-election campaigns and in his district office in Austin from late 1998 to 2004, said James Cousar, campaign treasurer for Doggett. It was during her work with the campaign office from 1999 to the first quarter of 2004 that she embezzled the money, Cousar said. For a decade, Willis was...

    McALLEN — Democratic voters in South Texas had a message this election for U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay — it’s going to take more than a new congressional map in Texas to get rid of 10-year veteran Lloyd Doggett. Doggett, an Austin Democrat who had to jump out of the new Republican-leaning District 10 in order to run in the new District 25, beat Republican challenger and former Public Utility Chair Becky Armendariz Klein of Austin. DeLay, a Republican from Sugar Land, baptized and then pushed congressional redistricting legislation through the Texas Legislature in October 2003, succeeding only after...

    Doggett, Klein focusing on minimum wage, environment. The race for the District 25 seat in the U.S. House of Representatives pits a five-term veteran congressman against a relative newcomer in a newly drawn district. U.S. Rep. Lloyd Doggett, 57, was one of the targets of a Republican-led redistricting plan meant to obliterate several key Democrats in Congress. Instead, before the ink was dry, he declared his intention to run for the newly redrawn congressional district and charged south picking up endorsements from key Rio Grande Valley politicians and the United Farm Workers. The district now covers Caldwell, Duval, Gonzales, Jim...

    PHARR, Texas - Democratic Rep. Lloyd Doggett, forced to run in a new and unfamiliar district after the Republicans redrew Texas' congressional map to their liking, is up against a judge in Tuesday's primary. But his REAL opponent, he tells the voters, is U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay. It was DeLay, a Texas Republican, who played a major behind-the-scenes role in the redistricting battle that could give the GOP seven more congressional seats and break the Texas delegation's 16-16 split. The new map was adopted by the GOP-controlled Legislature last year after months of turmoil that included two out-of-state...

    Rep. Lloyd Doggett fights for his political life against Leticia Hinojosa. PALMVIEW — With a practiced smile and outstretched hand, U.S. Rep. Lloyd Doggett recently greeted two cleaning ladies at the newly dedicated Garcia Middle School in this booming Hidalgo County town. Nervously, they retreated. But with shy smiles, they shook his hand after Libby, the candidate's wife and a longtime bilingual education teacher, told them in Spanish, "My husband's a congressman, and we'd appreciate your support." Doggett, who hasn't lost an election in 20 years, began campaigning in South Texas two months before the newly drawn 25th Congressional District...

    RIO GRANDE CITY — Judging by the crowd at Las Lomas, a colonia in one of the nation's poorest counties, no one would have guessed that a majority of local elected officials already had endorsed Leticia Hinojosa's opponent for Congress. The event was billed as a forum for the two Democrats, but when it came time to start, the crowd was chanting only, "Leticia! Leticia! Leticia!" "Hola, chulas (Hi, cuties)," the former state district judge told a pair of young girls who greeted her as they would a favorite tía. A representative for her opponent, U.S. Rep. Lloyd Doggett, D-Austin,...
