    How May I Introduce An Idea to the Tea Party Representatives? Free Republic is an amazing national resource that I think should be able to help direct me. How do I seek the opinion of a Tea Party Republican member of Congress? I have an idea for a legislative proposal that I believe would benefit the Tea Party Movement, the Republican Party, and the nation. I emailed Ted Cruz some time back and received a nice form letter suggesting a later response that never arrived. I have given my idea considerable thought and I of course realize that it may...

    Army Brigadier General Martin P. Schweitzer received a "memoranda of concern" following a lurid set of emails between him and another general, according to documents obtained by The Washington Post. Schweitzer was briefing Brigadier Gen. Jeffrey Sinclair on a recent meeting he had with tea party Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-N.C.) in 2011. From WaPo: “First — she is smoking hot,” Schweit­zer wrote. “Second — briefing went well . . . she was engaging . . . had done her homework. She wants us to know she stands with us and will work/push to get the Fort Bragg family resourced.”

    ( - Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) says, corporations control the patterns of thinking in the United States and that the Bill of Rights to the Constitution should be amended so that the government is given the power to restrict freedom of speech. "We need a constitutional amendment to allow the legislature to control the so-called free speech rights of corporations," said Johnson. These corporations, along with the people they support, other millionaires who theyre putting into office, are stealing your government.

Vaillancourt wrote, "This pedophile enabler has blood (and perhaps other bodily fluids) both figuratively and perhaps literally on his hands...The Bishop has disgraced the Catholic Church." See here. The highly emotional and erratic Republican lawmaker had to be physically removed from the state House of Representatives on Tuesday afternoon after making a Nazi salute during a contentious debate about limiting what is considered valid voter identification....

    Fatah officials in Ramallah complained Wednesday their spokesman in the Hamas-run Gaza Strip was detained by Hamas security forces, the Palestinian Authority-run Maan News Agency reports. Fatah lambasted Hamas and said the detention of Fayez Abu Aitah violated the reconciliation agreement signed by the two factions in Cairo. "Fayez Abus Aitah's detention harms the basic rights of the Palestinians," a Fatah statement said. According to Fatah officials, Hamas security forces have "insisted on preventing the movement of A'itah, making it impossible for him to do his job." "In detaining A'itah," Fatah said, pointing fingers in its statement, "Hamas is harming...

    Nancy Pelosi doesn't have much longer as Speaker of the House. But if there's one constant in our ever-changing world, it's that Pelosi will remain unconscionable until the gavel is wrested from her hand. During a recent speech on the House floor, she expressed opinions about unemployment insurance and tax policy that seem irrational even for her. Pelosi supports extending unemployment insurance beyond the current 99-week limit. To substantiate her position, she touted unemployment benefits as a burgeoning economic catalyst. All we need do is and tap into their power. Pelosi informed Congress that "[u]nemployment insurance ... returns two dollars...

But in an endorsement published in Sunday's editions, we settled on Salinan Tracey Mann as the best pick, saying he "at least shows the ability to be reasonable and straightforward with voters." We were wrong. And we withdraw that endorsement. Quite simply, the reason is that it turns out Mann is what is known as a birther. He questions the citizenship of President Barack Obama despite evidence that...

King - who was just one of 11 members of Congress who voted against the package which passed both houses and was signed by President Bush - based his vote on the need for "fiscal responsibility." He said the federal government needed to develop a comprehensive plan for spending aid dollars, including input from members of Congress, before more money was appropriated. He earlier had voted for a $10.5 billion emergency aid package. Well,...

    The disciplinary arm of the N.C. State Bar dropped charges of felonious misconduct against two former Union County prosecutors Friday because of a 1999 clerical error at the state Supreme Court. The State Bar had charged Kenneth Honeycutt and Scott Brewer with lying, cheating and withholding evidence in a 1996 death penalty case. The ruling Friday marks the second time that Honeycutt and Brewer won on procedural grounds before the bar's Disciplinary Hearing Commission, which sits as judge and jury in disciplinary cases. . . . Prosecutors around the state are concerned that the case is damaging their reputation and...

    Dear Virginia Senators and Delegates, Im writing this letter to encourage you to stand for what is good and right. With all of the important matters you face, you must have a righteous standard to guide your decision making. Without such a standard you can easily be persuaded to promote and support bills that are not worthy of such promotion or support. The Scriptures are the standard by which we will all be judged and you are not excluded. Please seek to find out where you should stand on issues by learning where God stands on those issues. This is...

    Unfair Labor Practice On December 22, 2005 NJSCA/FOP 200 Parole Officer State Representative Joseph Martin sent an email to the State Parole Board Chairman John DAmico regarding three very serious labor related issues. Those issues involved the State Parole Board administration forcing parole officers to become essential status without negotiation, the recent epidemic of involuntary transfers against the negotiated contract, and the grievance procedure (a recent grievance decision in particular). Later that same day, State Parole Board Executive Director Michael Dowling scheduled a meeting with the Parole Officer State Representative for 12/23/05 at 9:00am. The following administration staff were present...

    I offer a proposal: The U.S. military will withdraw from Iraq, the Patriot Act will not be renewed and the United States will stop monitoring phone calls by potential terrorists. In return, if there is another terrorist attack on the United States, the Democratic Party will disband and contribute all of its assets to the families of victims, all Democratic senators and congressmen will resign and The New York Times will contribute $1 trillion to the fund for the families. Fair deal? Richard Slawsky Milford, Conn.

    WASHINGTON, Nov. 23, 2005 The U.S. military is not a "poor man's force." That's the conclusion Defense Department officials reached following examination of enlisted recruiting statistics gathered over the past year. "There is an issue of how representative of America is the force," said Curt Gilroy, the director of DoD's accessions policy in the Pentagon. DoD tracks "representativeness" - as Gilroy calls it - very closely. And representativeness can take a whole host of forms - race, education, social status, income, region and so on. "When you look at all of those, you find that the force is really...

    A seven-year legislative veteran is switching parties, giving Republicans a milestone 100 seats in the House of Representatives. State Rep. Greg Morris, a Vidalia Democrat and entrenched party insider, is set to appear before friends and supporters in his hometown today to announce his defection to the GOP. His decision bolsters the comfort level of the new Republican leadership in the 180-member House, which heads into the 2006 General Assembly session in control of 100 seats, nine more votes than they need to pass most legislation. His defection is significant for Democrats since Morris, 41, was part of former Democratic...

    AUGUSTA Democratic House leaders on Friday played down the potential impact of a decision by a representative to quit their party and go independent, a move that further narrows the already-close partisan breakdown in the House. Rep. Thomas Saviello of Wilton said he decided to drop his Democratic affiliation after consulting with his family and friends. Saviello said the decision to drop his party registration and become independent is best for his constituents and the rural area he represents. "We have special challenges and needs in District 90 that need to be talked about and addressed in Augusta. I...

    Certain seasons or events have historically spawned their own lexicons which are unique to those events and used almost exclusively to describe them. Late in the college football season, some games have what are unfailingly called, serious bowl implications. Likewise vice-presidential candidates must possess ''gravitas'' and Super Bowls oddly acquire roman numerals. So. too. does the Supreme Court nomination process require its own terminology, especially when the president is a Republican. Over the next several weeks there are a number of ordinary words and phrases that will be used ad nauseam in reference to whomever President Bush submits to the...

    WashingtonIn a stunning, White House-busting development, Rep. John Conyers, D-MI, has insisted that Karl Rove be marched to Gitmo till he reveals that hes the source of the leak uncovering CIA agent Valerie Plame. In a letter that is now being circulated in the U.S. House of Representatives, the Michigan Democrat cited recent reports that Rove discussed Plame with Time magazine reporter Matthew Cooper before she was outed as a CIA agent in July 2003, conclusively linking Rove as the new Deep Throat and this case as the Watergate of its day. The Conyer letter urges Bush to require Rove...
  • Is Anyone on Capitol Hill Looking Out for Voters? - (is Henry Hyde last of dying breed, patriots?)

    When US Representative Henry Hyde spoke about the bill that would penalize the United Nations half the dues it extorts from the US annually for not embracing reform he included as shocking a statement that has ever been uttered on Capitol Hill. He alluded to the fact that those who represent us in Washington DC need to be good stewards of the peoples money. Of course, for this statement of common sense to have any meaning those in Washington would first have to understand that the money they appropriate isnt theirs, its ours, and that they work for us.

  • Legislation would prevent 'global welfare' payments

    A Republican congressman is pushing a bill that would prohibit the federal government from paying Social Security benefits to non-citizens living in other countries. Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, re-introduced his bill, the Social Security for American Citizens Only Act, H.R. 858, in February after sponsoring a similar piece of legislation last year. "Please protect Social Security from being transformed into a system of global welfare by cosponsoring my Social Security for American Citizens Only Act," Paul wrote to his colleagues. The bill amounts to a pre-emptive strike against any efforts by the Bush administration to allow non-citizens in Mexico who...
