    Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says he thinks NFL players should stop protesting during the national anthem and instead speak out against domestic violence. The Republican former presidential hopeful sent a letter Monday to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and Players Association Executive Director DeMaurice Smith saying he believes players are showing disrespect for the flag and veterans. Players should drop the “divisive political sideshow” and speak out against domestic violence instead, the governor wrote. NFL league meetings Tuesday offer an opportunity to strongly condemn domestic violence, Walker added. “My request is simple: stand for the American flag and the national anthem...

    Is Olivia Munn upset that Aaron Rodgers hasn't proposed yet? Sources say Olivia thinks it's taking too long for her and Aaron to get engaged. And she's jealous that JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rogers are making wedding plans. Is Olivia Munn upset she isn’t engaged? Sources claim that she’s resentful that Jordan Rodgers popped the question before his brother, Aaron, did. Olivia, 36, and Aaron Rodgers, 33, have been dating since April of 2014. JoJo and Jordan Rodgers only knew each other a few months before getting engaged on The Bachelorette. Of course, that was the whole goal of The...

    President Obama is a big sports fan, so when he sat down to do an interview with GQ recently, it was no surprise that he compared himself to a famous athlete. What was surprising though is that the lifelong Bears fan compared himself to someone who plays for the team the everyone in Chicago hates: The Green Bay Packers. During the interview, Obama said that when it comes to running the country, he's like "Aaron Rodgers in the pocket." "In the sense of you can't be distracted by what's around you, you've got to be looking downfield," Obama said. "And...

  • Cathy McMorris Rodgers Denies That Steve King — Who Wrote GOP Immigration Policy — Represents Repubs

    Right Wing Watch ^ | Brian Tashman
    In an interview with Reason posted yesterday, Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, the chairwoman of the House Republican Conference, explicitly denied that Rep. Steve King is running the GOP’s policy on immigration and took issue with the party’s Nativist image. “He does not — his position does not reflect the broad view of Republicans,” she said of King. That’s interesting, since just last week the House GOP passed a draconian immigration bill crafted by none other than Steve King. King even called one of the bill’s key provisions “a mirror of what I’ve done the last two years here in this...
  • McMorris Rodgers challengers find hope in Cantor loss

    The day after the House’s No. 2 Republican fell to a primary challenger, Eastern Washington congressional candidates were hoping Wednesday for a boost to knock off the No. 4 Republican. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers faces three challengers in the August primary – one Republican, one Democrat and one independent. Each thought the defeat of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor validated some aspects of their races, which appear to be long-shot bids against the five-term incumbent. All three will run low-budget, populist races against the House Republican Conference chairwoman, hoping to finish at least second in the primary and then defeat...

    MADISON – Aaron Rodgers has faced some of the most ferocious defensive linemen the National Football League has ever unleashed on professional football fields. The Green Bay Packers quarterback has passed his way to the top of his game, becoming among the most accurate, respected and highest paid players in NFL history. Now, Rodgers is taking on a much more brutal enemy: The murderous warlords of the Democratic Republic of Congo in command of a civil conflict that has claimed more than 3 million lives. Green Bay’s QB has signed up as a celebrity front man for Raise Hope for...

Lee Rodgers, friend and mentor, is dead. I owe everything that I have in my professional life to Lee Rodgers, who took me under his wing back in 1988 in the halycon days of KGO Radio.

    In the last three weeks, she has sparred on national television with Democrats over Republican policies toward women, been called a "lying mouthpiece" by a liberal blog, and chided former House speaker Nancy Pelosi. In the world of conservative politics, Republican Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers has arrived. McMorris Rodgers has represented Washington state in the U.S. House of Representatives since 2005 but spent much of that time in relative obscurity, even while rising in 2009 to become the only woman among the senior Republican leadership in Congress. That low-profile was raised in March, with three words that still make McMorris...

    Responding to veepstakes rumors, Washington Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, vice chair of the House Republican Conference and a rising star on Capitol Hill, says she's open to being Mitt Romney's running mate and encourages him to tap a woman for the job. From National Review's Robert Costa: In an interview with National Review Online, the four-term Republican acknowledged that she's open to the idea, but took care to note that she is not "seeking" the nod. Romney, she says, should simply pick a conservative running mate—and if it's a woman, all the better. "Republican women bring an important voice to...

    Representative Cathie McMorris Rodgers and businessman John Koster rolled to primary wins Tuesday night in their respective legislative districts. Incumbent Congresswoman Rodgers (R) has represented the 5th congressional district that includes Spokane since 2005. She won 63% of the vote. She will face Democratic rival Daryl Romelyn who attracted 12% of the vote. By Washington law, the top two vote getters in a primary square off in the general, regardless of party. Both Rodgers and Koster were endorsed by Gov. Sarah Palin.

    No one in America has catalogued Barack Obama's connections to far left radicals like Stanley Kurtz of the National Review. Today, Kurtz looks at an article written by Obama sycophant Ben Smith of Politico who incredibly, has taken the word of former New Party co-founder Joel Rogers that the radical, Maoist "fusion" party "didn't have any members:" As for Obama's membership? [in the New Party] "We didn’t really have members," said Rogers. They also didn't have a ballot line in Chicago. So he said the line in the party newsletter appeared to refer to the fact that the party had...

    His last hours in the Coconino County Jail were taken up with writing letters to friends. Then, he put his last will and testament, written in jail a week earlier, into a manila envelope and scribbled a note to have it delivered to his attorney. The next day, Dec. 22, 2005, Prescott resident William C. Rodgers, 40, was found dead in his cell, suffocated with plastic bags. Investigators are convinced the death was a suicide. Why did he do it? He appears to have left no clue. Coconino County Sheriff's Office detectives seized Rodgers' letters and will for the investigation....

    SAN JOSE, Calif. — T. J. Rodgers is surrounded by a sea of silicon wafers on the roof of his company's headquarters in a Silicon Valley industrial park. No, not the ones that Mr. Rodgers, who founded Cypress Semiconductor in 1982, used to make high-speed computer memories or the newer specialized chips that go into iPods and high-end Mercedes-Benzes. These wafers are soaking up the sun's rays and turning them into electricity. On the roof, he fusses over the occasional weed that has grown up in the cracks between the panels and speculates about using robots to keep the glass...

    Three environmental activists were cooking up plastic explosives and had planned to test a device the day they were arrested, federal prosecutors alleged Wednesday as they indicted them. The three face five to 20 years in federal prison if they are convicted of conspiring to use fire or explosives to damage property. The suspects planned assaults this spring in the name of the Earth Liberation Front, a 'loosey-goosey, sort of mist-of-the-fog kind of an organization' of environmental activists, U.S. Attorney McGregor Scott said. Eric McDavid, 28, Zachary Jensen, 20, and Lauren Weiner, 20, remain in jail. They could enter a...
