  • Emails Reveal Cordray’s Plot to Appoint Own Successor

    Left-wing websites led former director's attempt to subvert WH authority Newly released emails reveal the machinations of former director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Richard Cordray to appoint his own successor. The failed attempt to install Leandra English as acting director of the CFPB last year began after Cordray found the idea in two left-wing websites, which argued it was "illegal" for the president to appoint the director of an executive branch agency. Cause of Action Institute, a nonprofit oversight group, obtained internal emails through a Freedom of Information Act request between Cordray, English, and other CFPB officials during...
  • What exactly is Elizabeth Warren trying to say about Kirsten Gillibrand?

    Sen. Warren, D-Mass., quickly jumped into the fight, replying to the president with a tweet of her own. "Are you really trying to bully, intimidate and slut-shame [Sen. Gillibrand]? Do you know who you're picking a fight with? Good luck with that, [Donald Trump]," the senator wrote, adding, "Nevertheless, #shepersisted." Warren's ability to inject both "slut-shaming" and her personal branding into a statement of support for a beleaguered presidential rival is almost impressive for its transparent opportunism. Believe it or not, the Oxford English Dictionary actually has a definition for "slut-shaming," which it says is to "[s]tigmatize (a woman) for...

    ...The island nation is a paradisiacal land of jade hills dotted with grazing sheep, golden-sand beaches surrounded by Jurassic Park-like jungles, snow-capped peaks that rise steeply from azure fjords, and pastoral villages serving gourmet meals and world-class wine. Brown spends his days as if he is campaigning across this terrain. He gladhands mayors and their constituents, bearing patriotic gifts: US-New Zealand flag pins, and military challenge coins imprinted with Brown’s signature. He introduces himself to chambers of commerce, noting that he, too, was once a business owner. And he connects with Kiwis over rock music and rugby, trying to parry...

    President Trump on Thursday said he plans to nominate former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown as ambassador to New Zealand. "If confirmed, Scott Brown of Massachusetts will serve as Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the United States of America to New Zealand," the White House said in a release. "Mr. Brown is a lawyer and former United States Senator. Mr. Brown served in the Massachusetts Army National Guard before receiving his law degree from Boston College Law School. He then went on to serve in the Massachusetts legislature for over a decade before winning the special election for Ted Kennedy's U.S....

    Every time Donald Trump discusses issues he hopes to tackle as president, he always mentions the need to make sure US veterans are taken care of. A strong candidate for the job who is currently being considered for Secretary of Veterans Affairs is former Senator Scott Brown. American Thinker interviewed him and some veterans about what issues need to be tackled. If anyone has the right stuff to clean up the mess within the VA it is Scott Brown. His work experiences will help him tackle the many issues. At the age of nineteen he enlisted, and soon was commissioned...

    Scott Brown is being considered for Veterans Affairs secretary — a position the former Massachusetts Republican senator says he would accept if offered. “The VA is in trouble. Soldiers are dying while waiting, employee morale is low and it needs to be fixed,” Brown told The Post in an email. “Having served for 35 years in military, last 4 years at Pentagon, serving on Armed Services, Veterans and working on these issues for decades, it would be a great challenge to fix and a great honor to serve if asked. Time will tell,” he added. Brown, who moved a couple...

    In Last Tuesday’s win over Chris McDaniel, Senator Thad Cochran engaged in all manner of political chicanery and racial subterfuge. In a scheme concocted Haley Barbour, the Cochran campaign accused Chris McDaniel and the Tea Party of plotting to disenfranchise African-Americans. When asked to comment about Team Cochran’s unethical and borderline illegal tactics– NH GOP Senate candidate Scott Brown giggled demonically…. “I know you’re not gonna like it, but…I don’t really care about what happened in Mississippi.

    Scott Brown: Warren should take DNA test to prove Native American heritage By Al Weaver (@alweaver22) • 6/27/16 2:13 PM Former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown said Monday that his successor Sen. Elizabeth Warren should take a DNA test to prove her Native American heritage. Brown, who spoke on a conference call after Warren appeared with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in Cincinnati, told reporters that the Massachusetts Democrat could easily clear up the chatter about her heritage by releasing records from Harvard University and the University of Pennsylvania, where she taught. "First of all — as we all know,...
  • Tenn. Senator Labeled A Top Trump VP Pick Meets With Trump Monday

    Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., was labeled by Charles Krauthammer on Friday as the pundit’s leading pick to be the running mate of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. The Washington Post, citing unnamed sources, said Corker will be meeting Monday with Trump at Trump Tower in New York City Krauthammer used a hypothetical pot of $100 in casino chips to make his point, putting $25 on Corker, $20 on former Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass., $20 on Ohio Gov. John Kasich, $10 on former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, and $5 on Heritage Foundation President Jim DeMint. The rest went to “the field,”...

    Scott Adams' Blog Dilbert ^ | Posted May 17th, 2016 | Scott Adams
    As I said, predicting a VP choice is nearly impossible until the last minute because the situation is fluid. A candidate might need some help in a key state, based on current polling. Or the opponent might open up a new line of attack that needs a defense. A lot can change in a few weeks. But as of today, and according to the Master Persuader filter, I put the odds at 90% than Trump picks Brown as his running mate.

    Donald Trump on Wednesday said that he would consider making Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) his running mate. “I respect Ted,” he told host Bill O’Reilly on Fox News’ “The O’Reilly Factor." "He was a very strong competitor. He really competed hard and tough." “He’s certainly a capable guy,” the presumptive GOP presidential nominee added. "It’s something we can think about.” Trump defeated Cruz in Tuesday’s Indiana GOP presidential primary, making him the presumptive nominee. Cruz suspended his Oval Office bid shortly afterward, saying that his results in the Hoosier State “foreclose” his path to the Republican presidential nomination. Trump on...

    Legal Insurrection ^ | March 20, 2016 | William A. Jacobson
    Say what you want about Donald Trump, but he has an instinctive knack for zeroing in on an opponent's inherent weakness. With Jeb, it was "low energy." That term exploited a key perception problem of Jeb, and one he couldn't shake. So to did "Little Marco," which may have ended not only Marco Rubio's presidential campaign, but his political career . . . More heavyweights are jumping in to stomp Trump, including Elizabeth Warren. Asked about her jabs, he pounced: "I think it's wonderful because the Indians can now partake in the future of the country. She's got about as...

    Former Massachusetts Republican Senator Scott Brown told Breitbart News Daily host Stephen K. Bannon today he sees Donald Trump winning the New Hampshire primary with John Kasich coming in second and "Rubio right there in third." Brown previously thought Rubio would finish second. That was before New Jersey Governor Chris Christie banged the Florida Senator up pretty good in Saturday's Republican debate. Brown called Rubio "brilliant," adding that he considered him a good friend, but felt the cage match with Christie really hurt him. Asked about Trump's "ground game," Brown said he was confident the businessman has a good one...

    Former Massachusetts senator Scott P. Brown, a moderate Republican who two years ago ran for Senate in New Hampshire, will endorse Donald Trump at rally here Tuesday night, one week before the state's presidential primary. Brown's decision has been closely guarded for days, but it was confirmed by two people familiar with the event, where Brown will appear onstage with the candidate. When reached early Tuesday afternoon, the Trump campaign's spokesperson would not discuss the rally or possible guests. Brown was unavailable for comment.

    Man. Lotta 2010-vintage tea-party heroes are climbing aboard the Trump train these days, huh? First Palin, now this. Presumably Trump’s holding the Joe the Plumber endorsement in reserve for just the right moment.This is a decent get for Trump. Brown's move could give Trump a significant boost, one day after the mogul lost the Iowa caucuses to Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas. Although Brown was defeated in his senatorial bid here, he has been popular GOP figure in New England ever since his stunning, come-from-behind victory in Massachusetts's special election to fill the Senate seat in 2010.Brown is also...

    Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) on Friday said Hillary Clinton's paid speeches to Wall Street firms such as Goldman Sachs are "in the past" and not worth delving into. "The fact is that's in the past," she said on MSNBC when asked about Clinton's past speeches to the banking firm. "They're done, so it doesn't matter whether or not you support that or not," Shaheen said. "[It is] just as Bernie's socialism - he claims - is in the past," she added of Clinton's chief rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, Bernie Sanders. "The question is what do voters want to...

    At a rally in New Hampshire today, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen bragged about how Hillary Clinton handled and withstood the Benghazi hearings, getting a loud crowd response and thrilled laughter from Secretary Clinton, because what is more amusing an anecdote than answering for American casualties, am I right? "Eleven hours, Hillary was before that committee. Is there anybody here who thinks that anybody else in this race, Republican or Democrat, could have done what Hillary did? Not Donald Trump. Not Ted Cruz. And not Bernie Sanders!" Each time the crowd gleefully shouting back "NO!" as Hillary laughs it up. Hey Senator...

    Donald Trump says that former senator Scott Brown, one of the most liberal Republicans, would make a great Vice President. Donald Trump said Saturday that Scott Brown would be a vice president straight out of "central casting." "You know what? He's central casting," Trump replied, nodding. "Look at that guy! He's central casting! A great guy and a beautiful wife and a great family. So important!" So who is Scott Brown? First of all, Scott Brown is a big loser. He filled the partial term of Teddy Kennedy, and was defeated for reelection in Massachusetts; then he carpetbagged over to...
