    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says Congress will act early next year to repeal President Barack Obama’s health care law but delay the changes as Republicans try to come up with an alternative. […] Speaking in Louisville, McConnell cautioned that the law’s critics “can’t just snap your fingers and go from where we are today to where we’re headed.” He said a replacement to the health care law will be done in a “phased-in way.” …

    Newt Gingrich said Tuesday that President-elect Donald Trump’s biggest mistake since the election was his claiming without any evidence that millions of votes were illegally cast on Election Day. "The president of the United States can't randomly tweet without having somebody check it out," Gingrich, a vice chair on Trump's transition team, told USA Today’s Susan Page during an appearance on the Capital Download video series. “I mean it just— It makes you wonder about whatever else he's doing. It undermines much more than a single tweet." On Sunday, Trump falsely (sic) claimed that “millions” of people voted illegally, preventing...

    COLUMBIA -- President-elect Donald Trump is picking South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley to become his U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, The Post and Courier has learned. The move, expected Wednesday, continues the steep political rise of the daughter of Indian immigrants that started six years ago when the Bamberg native was elected as South Carolina’s first female and minority governor. The planned nomination to the cabinet-level post, confirmed by multiple sources with knowledge of the decision, is likely to raise questions about Haley’s qualifications for a major foreign policy role since she has little diplomatic experience as state lawmaker...

    Washington (CNN)A Republican hawk, John McCain, is warning a Republican President-elect, Donald Trump, about growing too close to Vladimir Putin before Trump's presidency even begins. McCain on Tuesday did not mention Trump's name in a statement but left no question about his opinion on a president acting too chummy with the Russian leader. Trump has been criticized by Republicans at times for his praise of Putin and believes that the US and Russia can work strategically together to advance an international agenda. McCain said President Barack Obama's attempts to cool tensions between the US and Russia had enabled the nation...

"There will be areas where I don't agree, and my job then will be to represent a coequal branch of government and speak my mind," Graham told reporters in the Senate Tuesday. In the wide-ranging session Tuesday afternoon, Graham – a vocal opponent of Trump's tone and positions on immigration and foreign policy – said that he believes Trump is not an ideologue and instead will still be evolving on public policy...

    Former President George W. Bush reflected on the presidential election Tuesday and cautioned against anger influencing political policy, CNN reported. Speaking in Dallas, Bush acknowledged that economic anxiety and voters who were "sick and tired of the status quo" pushed President-elect Donald Trump to victory — though Bush did not mention Trump by name. "I understand anger, and some people may have been angry when I was president," Bush said. "But anger shouldn't drive policy. What needs to drive policy is what's best for the people who are angry."

    It’s no secret that Donald Trump is as much of a blank slate on policy as anyone who’s ever been elected president. Both supporters and opponents of the president-elect agree that Trump is still very malleable on many issues and has a lot to learn about both foreign and domestic policy. This is why it is critical for conservatives to win the ‘battle of personnel’ in the coming days. Failure to land conservative outsiders in key cabinet and advisory roles would be akin to failing to establish control of the beach head during the Normandy invasion. We can dream of...

    The Trump phenomenon was a thumb in the eye of liberal complacency. It was the first time in my memory that a Republican gave the same treatment back to the Democrats. That caused this new fretting over polarization. There was no polarization when only one side (the Dems) was the bully. No one spoke of polarization when the left demonized a decent man like Mitt Romney. But when you have a candidate like Trump hit back, now you have polarization. This should have been a gift for Republicans -- but it wasn't. Where Trump and his mouthpieces went wrong was...

    Are you aware of the 1982 Consent Decree between the Republican National Committee (RNC) and the Democratic National Committee (DNC)? If you’re not, don’t be alarmed, most others don’t know about it either. Even if you’re a political junkie, it’s unlikely that you’ve been aware of the Consent Decree and what it means to voters – particularly Republican voters. So you might say, I sometimes vote Republican, so what’s that mean to me? It means that many well-informed, politically active Republicans (like you, perhaps?) could have their votes cancelled out by democrat voter fraud and, thanks to the RNC; our...

But just because it’s been a weird year, that doesn’t mean it has to end badly. There’s reason to hope. Consider independent write-in candidate for president Evan McMullin. He has virtually no chance of winning the election on November 8, but he does have a shot at being chosen as our next president.

[…] McConnell’s silence is especially notable in light of Trump’s recent complaints that the election is rigged and he might not ultimately accept the results. Despite a lifetime in public service, McConnell has offered no reaction, passing up the opportunity to defend the...

When asked in an interview with “CBS This Morning” early Wednesday whether he believed Trump’s assertion of a cooked election was correct, Kasich replied with an emphatic “no.” “Look, to say that elections are rigged and all these votes are stolen -- that’s like saying we never landed on the moon, frankly,” said Kasich. “That’s how silly it is.” The Ohio governor further criticized Trump’s position...

The gas tax, though, is still lower than the gas tax in neighboring New York and Pennsylvania. The hike is set to go into effect Nov. 1. Christie also rescinded an order that shut down transportation projects in the state. He first issued the order when the transportation trust fund expired months ago....

As Republican elites continue to defy Republican voters on the crucial issue of immigration, it’s not surprising that the Senate’s open-borders crowd is refusing to back the man who—largely because of his hawkish immigration position — was chosen by Republican voters to be their party’s nominee.

Both the House and Senate overwhelmingly overrode Obama’s veto of the measure on Wednesday. McConnell said he told the president recently that the 9/11 victims bill “was an example of an issue that we should have talked about...

    As a life NRA member, like many of you I was puzzled and dismayed by the news that the NRA had endorsed the Democrat candidate for Governor of Missouri. What but how could that be? This report from GotNews.com lays it out. The Republican candidate is Eric Greitens, a Navy SEAL! There must be more to the story and there is. GotNews.com has presented the whole picture of exactly who Greitens is; and it’s not very attractive for genuine American conservatives. Greitens is former Democrat, a globalist and a man who has strong connections to “the Clinton Foundation, George Soros,...

    Called Adam Kinzinger’s (Ill 16) DC office yesterday and asked, “What is my Congressman going to do to prevent Obama from ceding our Internet freedom to the UN by giving up US control of ICANN?” They claimed they did not know anything about this. Has anyone else had a similar experience with their “Representative”?

    Okay you Never-Trumpers, I’ll  concede that The Donald is sometimes less than articulate (in the community organizer/orator sense of the word), says some things that seem less than brilliant, can be a bit crude and has some fairly funky looking hair. Which leads some to conclude he isn’t “presidential.” However, I would expect you, then, to concede that electing the smartest guy (or gal) in the room with the sharpest crease in his/her trousers, whose primary qualifications entail being “articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy (or gal)” won’t exactly work out all that well either.Too cool for...
  • Jeb Bush: Donald Trump’s shift on immigration ‘abhorrent’

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush says Donald Trump is turning into a typical politician with his recent comments on illegal immigration, saying Mr. Trump is correct to try to reach out to new constituencies but that it’s anyone’s guess what he might actually believe. “This is all a game,” Mr. Bush said Thursday in a radio interview with WABC’s Rita Cosby. “His views will change based on the feedback he gets from a crowd, or, you know, what he thinks he has to do.” Mr. Bush, who Mr. Trump repeatedly mocked as “low energy” during the GOP presidential primary contest,...

    A new Republican proposal [by Rep. Bob Goodlatte (RINO, VA)] to resolve the long-running fight over taxing internet sales across state lines drew praise from Amazon.com Inc. and House Speaker Paul Ryan. “I am shocked Republicans would propose an internet sales tax,” said Sen. Ron Wyden (D., Ore.) “This proposal would create a logistical nightmare for states like Oregon that don’t have or want sales taxes. I will continue to oppose any efforts to impose a national sales tax scheme on Oregonians.” Michael Needham, the chief executive officer of Heritage Action for America said, “the Republican-controlled Congress would be wise...
