    Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) says refugees fleeing war-torn Syria are trying to come to the U.S. for a “paid vacation” in the form of generous welfare programs. “I’m one of these folks that think we need to stop paying these folks to come here, and we’re paying them about $15,000 a year in free health care, free food, free shelter, free clothing, free transportation,” Brooks said on the Dale Jackson Show on Friday, as first reported by the liberal media outlet ThinkProgress. ADVERTISEMENT “You know, just go down the litany of wealth-transfer programs that these people are entitled to, and...

    Democratic U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Friday denounced as "pathetic" and "totally ridiculous" a Republican congressman's call to impeach her on her first day in office if she is elected to the White House next year. Clinton, the front-runner for her party's November 2016 presidential nomination, was responding to comments made by Republican Representative Mo Brooks of Alabama.

    Greeted by a crowd exceeding expectations in Huntsville, Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz rolled into the Rocket City on Sunday evening as an apparent candidate on the rise. In an NBC News post-debate poll released Sunday, Cruz rose to No. 2 among the 17 GOP candidates an indication, the junior senator from Texas said, that his campaign is resonating with voters. "God bless the great state of Alabama," Cruz said in greeting a crowd estimated by local Republican officials as more than 1,000 in the Jackson Center in Cummings Research Park. "Holy cow!

    Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz is coming to Alabama. Cruz, the first-term senator from Texas, will be the keynote speaker at the annual Lincoln-Reagan Dinner on Aug. 25 hosted by the Tuscaloosa County Republican Party, chairman Jim Zeanah said. Zeanah said tickets are $100 per plate and sponsorship opportunities are available as well. More than 500 people are expected to attend the dinner, he said. "We don't even have tickets printed yet but it feels like a sellout already," Zeanah said. Zeanah said the Lincoln-Reagan Dinner, in its ninth year, has a history of attracting well-known speakers. Among those was...

    A Republican congressman believes Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, would be as great of a president as Ronald Reagan. Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala., made the comparison while talking to Yellowhammer Radio with Cliff Sims. I believe Ted Cruz would be an excellent president. The parallels between Ted Cruz and the way he conducts himself, his belief system, and Ronald Reagan are uncanny, Brooks said....
  • Reindeer farmer saves 'cromnibus' with yes vote (Kerry Bentivolio, R-Mich.)

    The Hill ^ | December 11, 2014 | Cristina Marcos
    The cromnibus had an unlikely savior Thursday afternoon in the form of a lame-duck lawmaker who used to raise reindeer. Rep. Kerry Bentivolio (R-Mich.), who lost his primary earlier this year, was originally among the conservative Republicans who voted against the rule. Without the help of Democrats, Republicans could only lose 17 of their own to pass the rule, which sets up floor debate for the underlying "cromnibus" spending bill. Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) intervened once there were 18 Republican defectors and not a single Democrat voting "yes." Many Democrats will vote against the government spending measure because they...

    At this point, you really have to wonder: Is it still news when a Republican says something asinine? On the off chance it is, let us spend a few moments pondering the strange case of Alabama Rep.Mo Brooks, who said last week that theDemocratic Partyis waging a "War on Whites." Yeah, he actually said that. You can look it up if you want. Mr. Brooks was responding to radio talk show hostLaura Ingraham, who had asked him to comment on a remark from National JournalcolumnistRon Fournier to the effect that theGOPcannot continue to be competitive in national elections if it...

    Chicago Tribune ^ | August 10, 2014 | Clarence 'the Cross-eyed' Page cpage@tribune.com
    U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala., claims liberals are waging a "war on whites." If so, Barack Obama must be at war with himself. That's how goofy Brooks' logic sounds. But he's not nuts. It is an old reflex, when cornered in politics, to lash back with the same charge others have leveled at you or, put another way, to project your own flaws onto other people. What's sad about Brooks' claim is his feeble attempt to play the white victim card, plucking the strings of white nationalism, just to have his way with the nation's immigration policy.

    Updated 6:37 p.m. | Sen. Ted Cruz gathered a group of House conservatives in his office Tuesday night, talking about immigration and House GOP leadership elections slated for after the midterm elections. As CQ Roll Call first reported last October, Cruz held a secret meeting with members at Tortilla Coast during the height of the government shutdown drama. Many of these same Republicans are the agitators who arent happy with Speaker John A. Boehner. The Texas Republican gathered roughly 10 members of the GOP Conference at 8 p.m. Tuesday for a 90-minute session that included candy bars, crackers and soda....

    A group of House Republicans is rejecting President Obamas call for members to pass comprehensive immigration reform. In a letter to the White House, the group calls the legislation, already passed by the Senate, an awful deal for American workers and questions how Obama could champion higher wages for them while backing a law that allows millions of low-skilled workers into the U.S. labor force. We write to you today on behalf of the 21 million Americans who cant find a full-time job, writes Alabama GOP Rep. Mo Brooks and 15 other largely conservative House members. Comprehensive immigration reform may...

Bah!As Washington twists itself into a pretzel with convoluted plots and plans to "create jobs", as usual they miss the forest for the trees. As we have always pointed out, the most obvious solution to many of our financial woes is a simple one: deal with illegal immigration. And with jobs it is no exception. For every illegal with a job there is an American without one. Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) gets it. He has a "surefire" plan to create jobs in America. And unlike Obama, he doesn't...

    Contessa Brewer doesn't have a law degree. So perhaps the MSNBC host was unaware of the old cross-examination adage: never ask a question to which you don't know the answer. Arguing with Rep. Mo Brooks today over raising the debt ceiling, Brewer attempted to discredit the Tea Party Republican freshman Member of Congress from Alabama by asking "do you have a degree in economics?" "Yes, ma'am, I do. Highest honors," [from Duke] answered the courtly congressman. Ruh-roh! Hat tip NB readers CWH and Felix B. View video here.

    Madison County Commissioner Mo Brooks says he won't run for the 5th Congressional District seat being vacated by Bud Cramer. Brooks, who's a Huntsville lawyer, said Thursday he has been encouraged by many voters to qualify as a Republican for Congress. But he said he has many trials coming up and can't abandon his clients during their time of need. Brooks said he also has family commitments that take priority. Brooks ran for lieutenant governor in 2006 and finished third in the Republican primary.
