  • Trump's pledge to boost infrastructure could aid mid-Hudson

    The Middletown Times Herald-Record ^ | November 21, 2016 | James Nani
    County leaders are hopeful that the $1 trillion infrastructure investment promised by Republican president-elect Donald Trump will have a big impact on the region. Trump has promised to prioritize infrastructure spending in his first 100 days in office. The move is one that Democrats, now in minority positions in both houses of Congress, have said they're willing to support. The plan, which is not yet fully fleshed out, looks to rely heavily on billions of dollars of infrastructure tax credits to private entities. And while Federal Reserve Board Chair Janet Yellen warned recently that weighing down the national debt with...
  • State Republicans seek to prevent recount in some precincts

    Pittsburgh Post Gazette ^ | 12/01 | Chris Potter
    State Republicans are seeking to prevent a recount of ballots in some Allegheny County precincts on Monday, arguing that petitions seeking the recount were filed in the wrong place. “The Elections Board has no power or authority to conduct any further recount or recanvass,” said a Wednesday filing in Common Pleas Court by Republican attorneys Ronald Hicks and Lawrence Tabas. The arguments involved are technical, and rely on a close reading of the timeline according to which votes are counted and challenges may be permitted. But in essence, Republicans argue that those seeking the recount were in the wrong place...

    Complicated transitions I don’t like the sound of this, but I’m somewhat hopeful the worst possible interpretation of it is not accurate. Plus, it does come from the Worst Web Site in the World (at least until Mike Allen and Jim VandeHei complete the task of outdoing themselves), so maybe it’s all made up: Congressional Republicans are setting up their own, self-imposed deadline to make good on their vow to replace the Affordable Care Act. With buy-in from Donald Trump’s transition team, GOP leaders on both sides of the Capitol are coalescing around a plan to vote to repeal the...

    The myth that a complete replacement package has to be in place the moment Obamacare is repealed refuses to die First congressional Republicans said they couldn’t repeal Obamacare because they didn’t have full control of Congress. Then when they gained control of both chambers of Congress congressional Republicans said they couldn’t repeal Obamacare because they didn’t control the White House.

    A Democratic Party email calling for temporary workers to man a massive and unprecedented presidential election recall effort in Dane County had Republicans crying foul this week. The Democratic Party of Dane County advised that County Clerk Scott McDonell was looking for temp workers beginning Thursday to help check over 316,000 ballots cast in this month’s election. Recount workers could earn $20 an hour, maybe more, on 12-hour shifts, the notice stated. “We’re asked to forward this to people we think would be up to the job and have time to do this.

    Why do Republican attacks misfire in the political arena? In 1996, political commentator and author David Horowitz asked that question and many more in a pamphlet titled It’s a War Stupid!, in which he laid out a strategic and tactical playbook on how to battle and defeat the Left. Horowitz contended that Republicans consistently do a poor and ineffective job of forwarding their agenda, especially during election time. And he observed that while “the Left is permanently at war with America,” Republicans had no plan on how to fight back. Horowitz devoted some time reaching out to GOP leaders trying to get...

The members didn’t quite faint over my apostasy, but the shock was palpable. I emphasized that Republicans must prioritize delivering jobs and economic development to the regions of the country like the industrial Midwest — states like Michigan, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Wisconsin, Iowa,...

    Reason ^ | November 22nd, 2016 | Eric Boehm
    Christie says he doesn't pay attention to credit ratings, but maybe he should have. They've been trying to tell him (and other states) something. Since Gov. Chris Christie took office in 2010, New Jersey has seen its credit downgraded 10 times by the "big three" credit rating agencies. Seriously, though, the state's pension systems are a total mess. When Christie came into office in 2010, New Jersey was facing a $54 billion funding shortfall to pay for current and future retirees. He immediately set about tackling the problem—to his credit—and in 2011 the state passed a pension fund rescue plan...

Keeping with the "sports theme", he was asked why he always seems to "go on offense".

When I look back at the other Republican candidates, I see no one who would have been...

    As Democrats strategize on how to stop conservative legislation from making its way to Donald Trump’s desk in the White House, Republicans have a little-known rule in their toolbox that would allow them to pass legislation, including a repeal of Obamacare, with a simple majority. Democrats were able to keep 48 seats in the Senate after Tuesday’s election, giving the party the power to filibuster legislation and effectively prevent conservative policies from being enacted. But Republicans can turn to a seldom-used Senate rule that would allow them to pass legislation by a simple majority vote—legislation that has a greater chance...

A remarkable election that propelled Republican Donald Trump to the White House also resulted in Republican wins in a trio of governorships previously held by Democrats in Missouri, New Hampshire and Vermont. The only potential Republican setback came in North Carolina, where Democratic Attorney General Roy Cooper declared victory over Gov. Pat McCrory in a race that remained too close to call Wednesday.

    SALISBURY, N.C. — With two weeks until Election Day, Mike Pence has squared up his message for Republicans: "Come home." The GOP vice presidential candidate repeated the line seven times at a campaign rally on Monday afternoon. Pence, who joined the ticket this summer to help win over hesitant conservatives, turned his eyes toward galvanizing the turnout of members of his own party. "I want to submit to all of you, it's time to reach out to all of our Republican and conservative friends and say with one voice: 'It's time to come home and elect Donald Trump as the...

    It is funny to watch. It is funny because this circus shows us just how connected the two parties really are when all is said and done. Paul Ryan acts as if he is taking the high ground in his denying support to Donald Trump, when in reality it has nothing to do with morality. The connection that Ryan and Clinton share is not moral but philosophical. Ryan and Clinton are both globalists. They both want to see one big global community that never puts one people over others. It is the new socialism. Breitbart reports Donald Trump made headlines...

    Hillary Clinton insists she takes nothing for granted and will campaign to the end as if she were the underdog. But there are increasing signs of her confidence, including devoting more time in her speeches to trying to help Democratic candidates for Senate and other offices. CNN's Jeff Zeleny shares his reporting on her quiet, private outreach to Senate Republicans as Clinton allows herself to look ahead at the prospect of trying to govern. "I'm told she's been talking to Republican senators, old allies and new, saying that she is willing to work with them and govern. On the campaign...

    New data out today from YouGov BrandIndex suggests that Fox News is losing its luster in the eyes of Republican consumers -- who, it must be noted, pretty much despise CNN and MSNBC more than ever. It also must be noted that Fox News continues to dominate cable news ratings. Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly. Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly.

Officials said it would cost about $1,200 to replace the broken window and said anyone interested in helping cover the cost could donate online. This week, Delaware County Sheriff Ray Dudley said his office has received reports of campaign signs being taken from yards in the Yorktown and Mount Pleasant Township...

    Casino magnate Sheldon Adelson and his wife, Miriam, finally gave $10 million in September to mega-donor Todd Ricketts’s pro-Trump super PAC Future45, according to the latest filings with the Federal Election Commission. The group raised another $2.3 million from Todd Ricketts’ billionaire father, TD Ameritrade founder Joe Ricketts, and energy executives Joe Craft and Jay Bergman. According to a Politico analysis, only $68.7 million out of the $212 million Trump collected over the past three months in joint ventures with the RNC and state parties ended up in his campaign coffers, with $63.5 going to overhead expenses: consultants, catering, space...
