    During a speech in Missouri detailing the administration's plans for tax reform on Wednesday, President Donald Trump name-checked Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO), urging the cheering crowd to “vote her out” if the senior senator doesn't support his proposal. “And your senator, Claire McCaskill, she must do this for you,” Trump said, referring to moving on taxes. “And if she doesn't do it for you, you have to vote her out of office.” The line from the president elicited a roaring ovation from the crowd gathered at a manufacturing company in Springfield. “She's going to make that commitment. If she doesn't...

    On Monday, May 8, Tony Monetti, a Republican from Warrensburg, will be announcing his candidacy for the U.S. Senate on the steps of the historic Truman Courthouse in Independence at 7 p.m. He will do the same earlier in the day in St. Louis and in Jefferson City. Monetti’s road to Independence is a testament to the living reality of the American dream and the underrated accessibility of the Republican Party. Raffaele Antonio “Tony” Monetti was born in Brooklyn to Italian immigrant parents 51 years ago. His father was an electrician and his mother a stay-at-home mom. From as early as he could...

    The controversial “Obamaphone” program, which pays for cellphones for the poor, is rife with fraud, according to a new government report released Thursday that found more than a third of enrollees may not even be qualified. Known officially as the Lifeline Program, the phone giveaway became a symbol of government waste in the previous administration. Now a new report from the Government Accountability Office bears out those concerns. The report, requested by Sen. Claire McCaskill, Missouri Democrat, also says the program has stashed some $9 billion in assets in private bank accounts rather than with the federal treasury, further increasing...

Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) said at a town hall meeting in Fulton, Mo. last week. “We can’t just start having the government pay for everything.” “We owe a lot of debt,” McCaskill also said. “And if we’re not careful, we’re going to get so far under that we could be Greece.” “Free college tuition is a great goal except it’s really expensive.

    When hard-right conservatives like Patrick J. Buchanan and hard-left liberals writing for magazines like the New Republic both agree that it's time to reinvigorate long-forgotten concepts like federalism and states rights, and let liberal and conservative states both pursue the policies their voters think work best for their own people, something important has changed in our political discourse. Either something's gone seriously wrong and our nation is falling apart, or something is finally working right as both sides of the political divide figure out just **WHY** our Constitution was written as a compromise between the interests of thirteen very different...

Another form of fake news is to claim something did not happen when in fact it actually did - especially when said claim is designed to cast aspersions on someone else. And if you’re the New York Times, you can take this to an even higher level: You can report something that appears to cast aspersions on someone you don’t like (aka “a Republican”), and then, when it comes to light that this something is actually not true and that the...

A lot of Republican friends are just saying, ‘we can’t let this guy be commander-in-chief. He has no idea what he’s talking about.’”
