    NEW HAVEN, Conn. — A California congresswoman whose husband was indicted on theft and conspiracy charges in Connecticut cited an “unexpected family matter” Thursday in withdrawing as a candidate for chair of the House Democratic Caucus. U.S. Rep. Linda Sanchez, now the caucus vice chair, is married to James Sullivan, one of five people indicted on theft and conspiracy charges this week in connection with a public electricity cooperative and $800,000 worth of trips to the Kentucky Derby and other locations. Sanchez, who represents the 38th District in the Los Angeles area, wrote in a letter to fellow Democrats, “Unfortunately,...

Senators had blocked or refused to consider the confirmations of the nominees for various reasons, including questions about their qualifications. ... Recess appointments are made when the Senate is not in session and last only until the end of the next session...

    Wow, so I was actually tuned in to KPCC - the local NPR branch affiliate for Los Angeles. And one analyst gave a thorough rundown about California voter registration and polling trends. Here are some points: * Voters registering Independent of either party is up 169% as opposed to 25% for Dem and down 9% for Republican. This is especially true for new, young voters. Independents are the 2nd largest voting constiuent. * Independent candidate for Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner is currently leading against his Democratic counterpart by 6 points. * Californians express fiscally conservative views with socially moderate policies....

    The Republican Jewish Coalition is calling for the resignation of seven Democratic members of Congress whom it claims are "connected" to controversial Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. The group describes him as a "known anti-Semite." The lobbying group on Tuesday called for the following lawmakers to step down: Reps.

    Maxine Waters is a corrupt, abusive politician who cares nothing for the truth. Two weeks ago, she encouraged her far-left crowd of admirers to harass Trump officials in public places. Harassments easily become violent. She knows that and so do the Democrats claiming she didn’t encourage violence. Even if she didn’t, what right do these people have to urge abuse of political opponents in restaurants, gas stations, the public square, especially when they are on their own time, with their families? Referencing the harassment of Sarah Sanders, Kristjen Nielsen, and others, she said: “I want to tell you, these members...

    Arizona Rep. Andy Biggs on Monday introduced a measure that would censure Rep. Maxine Waters and ask her to resign for inciting people to publicly confront Trump administration officials. Biggs told The Hill that Waters’ comments do “not become somebody who’s in Congress” and warrant disciplinary action. “So we just introduced it, we have some cosponsors, but what she did was to basically incite people to come after and attack members of the president’s cabinet,” the Arizona Republican told The Hill. “And also spread that out to more people.” “Everybody agrees that it was just highly objectionable what she did,”...

    Bonnie and Clyde sometimes called themselves “bank inspectors,” but they were only kidding. The Palestinian Authority, the famous terrorist collective pretending to be a nation, collects $350 million from the U.S. Treasury every year to pay “salaries” to imprisoned terrorists, make love offerings to families of dead terrorists, celebrate terrorists as heroes, build monuments to dead criminals, and other bad things. And that’s no joke. The Palestinian Authority was even invited to an international conference in Paris the other day to talk about how to prevent financing of terrorism, to behead the venomous snake before it bites. That’s the sickest...

    The head of a conservative watchdog group said Thursday that Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters is inciting "mob violence" with her call for protesters to confront Trump officials in public, as he urged a formal ethics investigation on Capitol Hill. "When you’re out there ... inciting mob violence against sitting Trump Cabinet members, that doesn’t obviously reflect credibly on the House," Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton told "Fox & Friends." "And the House has to decide whether they’re going to allow its members to use the House as a platform and its power and position to attack and incite violence." Judicial...

    Rep. Maxine Waters, California Democrat, called for total social warfare against the entire Trump administration, cheering on those who in recent days have attacked or rebuffed them at restaurants and their homes, and calling for more in that vein.“Let’s stay the course, let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up,” she said at a speech, the video of which was posted Sunday on social media by conservatives.

    Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) on Saturday called on her supporters at a rally to confront Trump Cabinet officials in public spaces like restaurants and department stores to protest the administration's policies. "I have no sympathy for these people that are in this administration who know it is wrong what they're doing on so many fronts but they tend to not want to confront this president," Waters said at a Los Angeles rally on Saturday. "For these members of his cabinet who remain and try to defend him they're not going to be able to go to a restaurant, they're not...

    Sunday on MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) accused President Donald Trump of “placing a target” on her back. Waters said, “It is obvious that the president of the United States of America is placing a target on my back and he keeps calling my name and lying about me in order to make the target work. So I’m not intimidated by it, but I know what he’s doing. So I just continue to do what I do, to call it like it is, to speak truth to power. And I want you to know that the American people,...

    Swamped by a tidal wave of Democratic cash, Republicans entered the final 72 hours of the midterm campaign scrambling to preserve their slim Senate majority as a bulwark against the increasing prospect of a Democrat-run House. Needing to gain 23 House seats for control, Democrats were burrowing deep into once-safe Republican territory, from the suburbs of Philadelphia, Minneapolis and Houston to California’s historically conservative bastions of Orange County and the Central Valley. The most optimistic GOP scenarios had the party hanging on to its majority in the 435-member chamber by a whisper-thin margin. In the battle for the Senate, it...

    Waters, who could be the next chair of the Financial Services Committee if Democrats win control of the House, drew applause as she noted that “most of the members of the Congressional Black Caucus will be chairs” of congressional committees following an election win. . . “I will be the first African-American, the first woman to chair the powerful Financial Services Committee,” she continued. “That’s all of Wall Street. That’s all the insurance companies, that’s all the banks. And so, of course, the CEOs of the banks now are saying, ‘What can we do to stop Maxine Waters because if...
