    A group of Republicans who have decided not to run for re-election told CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday that the Republican Party has changed, and not for the better. Reps. Ed Royce (R-Calif.), Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.), and Charlie Dent (R-Pa.) and Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) complained about the GOP’s narrowing focus and the perception that the Republicans must pledge loyalty to the president instead of to GOP principles. […] Royce said he always considered the Republican Party to be “a big tent party” with room “for a lot of different viewpoints.” He said part of the answer is for...

  • FIGHTER PILOTS BLAST OBAMA: 75% of their ISIS Targets Get Blocked

    11/23/2015 7:33:24 PM PST · by Beave Meister · 40 replies
    (Conservative Post ) U.S. military pilots who have returned from the fight against the Islamic state in Iraq are confirming that they were blocked from dropping 75 percent of their ordnance on terror targets because they could not get clearance to launch a strike, according to a leading member of Congress. Strikes against the Islamic state (also known as ISIS or ISIL) targets are often blocked due to an Obama administration policy to prevent civilian deaths and collateral damage, according to Rep. Ed Royce (R., Calif.), chair of the House Foreign Affairs Committee. The policy is being blamed for allowing...

    The House Foreign Affairs Committee has issued a subpoena to the Obama administration compelling it to release long-withheld documents concerning the training of diplomatic security personnel tasked with defending Americans abroad. Since 2014, Rep. Ed Royce (R., Calif.) the committee’s chairman, has been seeking key documents from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) regarding State Department plans to construct a nearly $1 billion training facility for diplomatic security personnel. Royce issued a subpoena to the OMB on Friday to force the release of documents detailing whether construction of the new training facility will be cost effective. Critics such as...

    Republican California Rep. Ed Royce is pressing the Obama administration on how it will deal with dozens of high-living Russian diplomats who lied about their incomes to collect healthcare money meant for the poor. Royce, chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, said Monday he wants a briefing on the alleged Medicaid fraud, and wrote to Secretary of State John Kerry asking how officials will handle "the law enforcement and diplomatic aspects" of the case, The Hill reported. In a complaint unsealed in federal court in Manhattan last Thursday, 49 former and current diplomats are charged with defrauding Medicaid of...

    Republican senator reportedly calls presentation on Iran talks ‘anti-Israeli’; aide says Kerry told senators to ignore Israelis Republicans were left unconvinced after US Secretary of State John Kerry’s closed-door presentation to the Senate Banking Committee on Wednesday, which was aimed at delaying a new round of sanctions against Iran. “It was an emotional appeal,” committee chairman Sen. Bob Corker said, according to the US-based media outlet BuzzFeed. “I have to tell you I was very disappointed in the presentation.” He said that the briefings by Kerry, Vice President Joe Biden and Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs Wendy Sherman provided...

    Secretary of State John Kerry has told US lawmakers any new sanctions against Iran would risk ruining talks over Tehran's nuclear programme. He told a Senate banking committee that the US might lose negotiating partners if it imposed economic penalties. The panel has been considering a fresh package but legislators are divided on the measure. Mr Kerry has told the BBC that Iran and world powers had come "extremely close" to a deal at the weekend. Before Wednesday's closed-door meeting with senators, Washington's top diplomat told reporters: "What we're asking everybody to do is calm down, look hard at what...

  • The critical need for a Select Committee on Benghazi *Action Item*

    I don't know about you, but I kind of resent that I have to repeatedly beg a few men in a far off city to do the right thing. Representative Frank Wolf has 146 Co-Sponsors to House Resolution 36, which calls for a Select Committee to investigate the attack on Benghazi. According to The Hill, while many of the members of the committees that oversee this issue have signed on to HR 36, the chairmen of those committees and Speaker Boehner stand against a select committee. The Chairmen in question are: Chairman of the Intelligence Committee: Mike Rogers R-MI Chairman...

    Republicans are 'not giving up' on BenghaziBy Julian Pecquet - 12/15/12 03:24 PM ET Republican lawmakers are vowing to keep pressing the administration on Benghazi despite Susan Rice’s decision to drop her bid to become secretary of State. “We'll continue to seek answers,” a Republican Senate aide told The Hill. “We're not giving up on it.” Rice’s decision to step aside averted a contentious confirmation fight with Republican senators that might have pointed to an end to the political battle over the U.S. consulate attack. The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations had become the flash-point for criticism since describing...

    WASHINGTON - Federal Judge Royce Lamberth has long been known for speaking his mind — most notably in rulings siding with American Indians in their battle with the government over their trust funds. But Lamberth went a step too far, an appeals court said Tuesday, citing one particularly harsh decision last July in which he accused the government of racism. In a rare move, a panel of judges from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ordered Lamberth removed from the 10-year-old Indian trust case, saying he had lost his objectivity. "We conclude, reluctantly, that this...

    A fellow UFC fan emailed me about the greatest Closed Captioned faux pas ever in the history of UFC captioning, or so I believe. I honestly somehow believe that this "faux pas" closed captioning was done on purpose with malice when Matt Hughes was introduced to the crowd as "Saddam Hussein." The email sender, Dave, sent me a few pictures of the Tivo'ed shots of the CC faux pas.
