  • Why Republicans Will Keep Control of Congress in the Midterm Elections

    WASHINGTON - The liberal national news media have been predicting for months that Republicans will likely lose their Senate majority in this year’s midterm elections, and suffer losses in the House, too. But it’s a bit premature to place your bets on the 2018 congressional sweepstakes, for several reasons: forecasts that the economy will take off later this year as a result of the GOP’s massive tax cuts, increasing incomes and jobs, not to mention that the Democrats are having problems of their own. The Democrats voted overwhelmingly against the tax cut plan in December, predicting it will add over...
  • John Boehner Embarrassed: His Whip Team Couldn’t Find Votes to Reelect Him Speaker Last Week

    House Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) had been planning to call up on the House floor last week a measure from Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) that would have removed him as Speaker of the House if it succeeded—intending to embarrass Meadows—but abandoned the plan after his entire leadership structure learned that they did not have the votes to re-elect him as Speaker before the August recess. “[House Majority Leader Kevin] McCarthy was making phone calls—he was whipping it—and so was [House Majority Whip] Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA),” a senior conservative movement leader who’s had many personal and direct discussions with...
  • The NY Times editorial board’s vote of no confidence in Hillary Clinton

    It is admittedly difficult to bear the obsequious servility that punctuates The New York Times editorial board’s latest gentle attempt to convince Hillary Clinton that she has a serious problem on her hands. Viewed, however, as a window into the thinking of the Democratic Party’s terrified pragmatists who are slowly coming to the realization that they backed the wrong horse, The Times’ latest is clarifying. It is a desperate and helpless demand that Clinton somehow stop the bleeding. “Nothing illegal has been alleged about the foundation, the global philanthropic initiative founded by former President Bill Clinton,” The Times editorial averred....

    The National Review ^ | July 10, 2014 | Joel Gehrke
    Senator Ted Cruz (R., Texas) and a group of House lawmakers are building a case for impeaching Attorney General Eric Holder. “Impeding justice is intolerable and he should not be permitted to refuse the American people a true investigation into the actions of those who used the machinery of government to target, intimate, and silence them for politically driven reasons,” Cruz said during a June 26 floor speech. Cruz had made such comments before, but this speech was different. He spent 40 minutes laying out the case for Holder’s impeachment — spending the bulk of that time on the IRS...

    Arutz Sheva has received an unconfirmed report that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu plans to announce a plan to uproot communities and carry out mass evictions in Judea and Samaria. Due to the political impasse between Israel and the Palestinian Authority, Netanyahu is expected to propose a final status solution that would leave Israel with only the major settlement blocs and eastern Jerusalem. All Jewish communities outside the major settlement blocs would reportedly face destruction under the plan. The report follows a report Monday morning in the Hebrew-language Ma'ariv newspaper claiming that Netanyahu has agreed to relinquish sovereignty over the Jordan...

    Republicans in Congress appear to be increasingly committed to the idea that Attorney General Eric Holder should resign because of the part he played — or didn’t play — in Fast and Furious. Late yesterday afternoon, Republican Rep. Paul Gosar of Arizona — who, you’ll recall, said Holder and other top Justice officials could conceivably be cast as “accessories to murder” — filed a resolution in the House of Representatives to call for a vote of “no confidence” in the AG. The Daily Caller reports: The resolution, introduced Monday afternoon, is a formal way to exhibit congressional disdain for Holder...

    In what is arguably one of the worst political events in US history, the election of Obama, we are forced to stand by and watch the piecemeal destruction of our very nation, the very political, economic dismantling of this great country of ours, the greatest country in history, by what is the greatest, most insidious nemesis America has ever known or faced. The wisdom and sagacity of our forefathers providing for the all-encompassing political contingencies as law of the land having stood the test of time, yet not having foreseen, imagined the nightmare scenario which we are in midst of...

    In recent months, labor organizations representing federal immigration agents have been among the most outspoken challengers of Obama’s enforcement campaign. In June, the American Federation of Government Employees’ National Council 118, which represents Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, issued a no-confidence vote for ICE Director John Morton, claiming he is promoting amnesty instead of enforcement because most ICE officers are unable to make immigration-related arrests on the streets, leading to “amnesty by policy.” The National Border Patrol Council adopted a similar no-confidence resolution targeting Border Patrol Chief David Aguilar. Brandon Judd, union vice president and president of Local 2544 in...

    It’s a process normally found in Parliamentary governments such as England, Canada or Australia. But given the actions of the Obama administration over the past year and a half (as well as some of the decisions made in previous administrations), one could make a good argument that it’s time we amend our Constitution to add a Recall provision or ”Vote of No Confidence.” Sure, our democracy has the rules of impeachment. But, as we’ve seen in the not-too-distant past, a sitting President can take sexual liberties with a female intern young enough to be his daughter, lie about it to...

    A recent Rasmussen poll taken after the passage of the economic stimulus bill found that consumer confidence has fallen to another record low. The Rasmussen Consumer Index, which measures consumer confidence on a daily basis, fell two points on Sunday and another point yesterday to 55.7. This is the third time in February that the daily Consumer Index has fallen to a record low. Confidence is down a point from a week ago, down six points from a month ago and 31 points since the financial industry meltdown began in mid-September. The poll is derived from nightly telephone interviews and...

    DETROIT - The Detroit City Council on Tuesday called for the resignation of Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, who is being investigated over an alleged affair he swore under oath he did not have. He quickly rejected the request. The resolution, passed 7-1, amounted to a "no-confidence" vote because the council lacks the power to force Kilpatrick to step down. Mayoral spokeswoman Denise Tolliver said Kilpatrick has no intention of quitting. "City Council, according to the charter, is free to pass nonbinding resolutions. However while certain members have been playing judge and jury in the court of public opinion, Mayor Kilpatrick has...

    Dems push Gonzales 'no-confidence' vote By LAURIE KELLMAN, Associated Press Writer 8 minutes ago WASHINGTON - Senate Democrats blistered Attorney General Alberto Gonzales Monday with debate on a "no-confidence" resolution, but President Bush and fellow Republicans shrugged it all off as a waste of time. No one predicted that the resolution would survive its test vote late in the day. But neither did Republicans or Democrats rush to defend Bush's longtime friend after he alienated even the White House's staunchest allies on a host of controversies — from the bungled firings of eight federal prosecutors to the handling of wiretapping...

    WASHINGTON -- The top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee said Monday he will vote for a no-confidence resolution against Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, after long questioning the leadership and independence of President Bush's longtime friend. Sen. Arlen Specter, R-Pennsylvania, said he's concerned like others in his party that the resolution, sponsored by Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-New York, and up for a test vote later in the day, was a Democratic effort to embarrass Bush and prompt Gonzales to resign. But Specter has long said that Gonzales has exercised poor leadership on a host of issues... "If you ask Arlen...

    I doubt if it will do any good, but I called both my U.S. Senators from Wisconsin to express my outrage that the Senate is wasting time with this stupid no-confidence vote regarding Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez. This vote will have no practical result, other than a photo op for the media. The Senate has already voted to confirm Mr. Gonzalez as Attorney General. Perhaps we can each demand that our Senators do what they were elected to do, what they swore to do, to protect and defend the Constitution.

    WASHINGTON, (AP) -- Majority Democrats in the Senate are forcing their Republican colleagues on the record about whether embattled Attorney General Alberto Gonzales should keep his job. No one is predicting that a symbolic resolution expressing no confidence in Gonzales will survive even the test vote Monday. Most Republicans are likely to vote no, dismissing the whole exercise as a ploy to embarrass President Bush. At a news conference in Sofia, Bulgaria, the last stop on a weeklong visit to Europe, the president reaffirmed his support for Gonzales, a longtime friend and legal adviser. "They can have their votes of...

    It like a punchline in a bad joke. Whose approval ratings are lower than President Bush’s? Why Congress’ are! Congress’ approval ratings are at a low, low 29% now that’s a vote of no confidence from the American people. It spite of recent polls showing America's no confidence in this Congress, this group of Bush hating political opportunists are set to stage a vote of no confidence in the Attorney General Alberto Gonzales. Having no evidence of wrong doing against Mr. Gonzales this Democratic controlled Congress has resorted to attempting to shame the attorney general from office. Gonzales should not...
