  • No. 2 House Republican: Gov’t shutdown ‘stupid’, may happen [McCarthy]

    A looming, partial government shutdown would be “stupid” but might be unavoidable if Democrats refuse to support President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall with Mexico, the second-ranking House Republican said on Thursday. Even if Republicans assemble enough votes to approve the wall in the House, the plan probably will fail in the Senate, said Rep. Kevin McCarthy of California. The House majority leader noted that Senate Democrats have pledged to block the bill from receiving the necessary 60 votes. McCarthy said on the House floor that he thinks “going into a shutdown is stupid,” but he offered no immediate plan...

    Rep. Kevin McCarthy (Calif.) ascended to the top job in House Republican leadership on Wednesday, while Rep. Liz Cheney (Wyo.) followed in her father’s footsteps by taking the party’s No. 3 spot. McCarthy prevailed over Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) 159-43, according to the House press gallery, while Cheney was elected by voice vote. Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) is stepping down at the end of his term in January. That opened up the top spot in House Republican leadership, which following the GOP’s defeat in last week’s midterms will be House Minority Leader.

    As Nancy Pelosi wrangles votes in her bid for House speaker, another leadership battle is playing out on the Republican side, where Kevin McCarthy faces a challenge from conservative Freedom Caucus co-founder Jim Jordan to lead the new GOP minority. Republicans lost the House majority in this week’s midterm elections, and conservatives are blaming the GOP establishment and angling for changes. McCarthy burned up the phone lines Thursday shoring up his support. And down ballot, the GOP will add a familiar name to the leadership lineup — Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, a daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney...

    Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, a key member of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, announced Wednesday that he intends to run for House minority leader -- setting up a challenge to Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif. “I plan to run for minority leader,” Jordan told The Hill, before taking a swipe at how the Republican caucus acted under outgoing House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis. "In 2016, the American people elected Republicans to come here and change this town. I think the president is doing just that, but I don't think they see the same intensity from folks in Congress, folks in the...

    American politician Joseph McCarthy, Republican senator from Wisconsin, testifies against the US Army during the Army-McCarthy hearings, Washington, DC, June 9, 1954. (Getty Images) An open letter to Brent Bozell, Tucker Carlson, Sen. John Cornyn, Jerome Corsi, Joseph diGenova, Hugh Hewitt, Sen. Mh itcMcConnell, Bill O’Reilly, President Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr., and all other conservatives who still decry “McCarthyism”: How about reconsidering the origins of “McCarthyism” and understanding them for what they are—the very seeds of our Marxian destruction and collective shambles? To set the scene, imagine that post-World War II period, when Americans were still trying to...

    Republican House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California claimed the GOP’s chances of retaining the House have changed dramatically, but said the party is still at a “disadvantage” when it comes to fundraising. McCarthy said the amount of absentee ballots and new volunteers rolling in should be an encouraging sign for Republicans, but continued to warn against the Democratic fundraising machine. (RELATED: House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy Warns Republicans Of Massive Democratic Fundraising Machine) “I think it’s changed drastically,” he said on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures.” “We look at just the absentee ballots.

  • Trump should submit Korean deal to Senate as treaty for ratification: House leader McCarthy

    The Washington Times ^ | June 2, 2018 | Stephen Dinan
    House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy said Saturday that President Trump should submit any eventual deal with North Korea to the Senate for approval as a treaty, saying lawmakers should have a full say on the matter. The California Republican said President Obama bungled the Iran nuclear deal negotiations by not treating them a treaty but instead as an executive agreement. That made it easy for Mr. Trump to revoke U.S. participation in the deal earlier this year. Mr. McCarthy told MSNBC’s Hugh Hewitt the treaty route is a way of not only making the deal lasting, but also of countering...

    President Trump endorsed GOP California gubernatorial candidate and businessman John Cox on Friday, days after Cox said he was remorseful he did not vote for Trump in the 2016 election because he wasn’t sure if Trump was a conservative. ...snip Cox and Orange County Assemblyman Travis Allen, both Republicans, are seeing to woo enough voters for the June 5 primary in order to gain one of two spots in the November general election. In the event Republicans fail to garner enough support, two Democrats could go head-to-head. Cox has already attracted the support of GOP leadership, including U.S. House Majority...

    On his nationally syndicated radio talk show Wednesday, host Mark Levin interviewed former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy on the topic of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s threat to subpoena and interview President Donald J. Trump, McCarthy suggesting that Mueller should not be permitted to subpoena Trump, nor even ask for an interview. “Well, I don’t think, Mark, that not only should a prosecutor not be permitted to subpoena a president by a court, I don’t think the Justice Department should allow a president to be even asked voluntarily to submit to an interview in the absence of evidence that there’s a...

    Half a century after the "Red Scare," playwright and memoirist Lillian Hellman, whose name is often coupled with her adversary Senator Joe McCarthy, has emerged relatively unscathed in the court of elite progressivist opinion despite the exposure of her manifold fabrications and deceptions. Such is the power of the press and the cultural salience of left-wing attitudes in America. Hellman, a passionate supporter of the Soviet Union even when Stalin's crimes had been widely publicized, was subpoenaed before the House Un-American Activities Committee by McCarthy [see comments –ed.] and was subsequently lionized by the media, the commentariat, and the entertainment...

    Mueller’s indictment is an ineffectual response to a provocation by Russia. The Russians are engaged in “information warfare” against the United States. That was the big soundbite at Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s press conference Friday afternoon, announcing Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s election-meddling indictment against 13 Russians and three Russian businesses. That is certainly a fair assessment of what the indictment alleges. The account is disturbing, but its form leaves many of us underwhelmed. Our government says Russia is levying war. It is attacking a foundational institution — the electoral system of our democratic society and, more basically, our society’s...

    New FBI texts highlight a motive to conceal the president’s involvement. From the first, these columns have argued that the whitewash of the Hillary Clinton emails caper was President Barack Obama’s call - not the FBI’s, and not the Justice Department’s. The decision was inevitable. Obama, using a pseudonymous email account, had repeatedly communicated with Secretary Clinton over her private, non-secure email account. If Clinton had been charged, Obama’s culpable involvement would have been patent. In any prosecution of Clinton, the Clinton–Obama emails would have been in the spotlight. For the prosecution, they would be more proof of willful (or,...

    White House attorney Ty Cobb was overheard talking about the Russia probe and some of his colleagues at a Washington steakhouse by a New York Times reporter, the publication reported Sunday night. Cobb, who was hired to oversee the White House's legal and media response to the investigation into Russian meddling, was heard talking openly about the Russia investigation with John Dowd, a Washington lawyer with experience in high-profile political cases. "The White House counsel's office is being very conservative with this stuff," Cobb reportedly told Dowd at BLT Steak in Washington last week. "Our view is we're not hiding...
