  • Democratic candidate calls GOP congresswoman "little girl" and "child"

    National Review ^ | 10/06/17 | by JIM GERAGHTY
    At a candidate forum for Democrats preparing to challenge Congresswoman Elise Stefanik of New York, the youngest woman in Congress, one of the candidates (Steve Krieg, a Plattsburgh City School Board member) proclaimed, “I probably deserve to be called a sexist,” did not back down from calling the congresswoman “a little girl” and went on to call her “a child.” It’s worth noting that none of the other Democratic candidates on the stage objected to that language or characterization. One again we see the consistent principle of, ”it’s only sexism when someone in the other party does it.”

    A petition calling on the Trump administration to formally recognize the Antifa movement as a terrorist organization has reached the threshold after which the White House is compelled to reply. The effort passed the 100,000 benchmark around 8 p.m. Eastern time on Sunday. Though the petition had 30 days to reach that goal, it did so in less than a week.

    Humanity confuses its loyalties and builds a shrine for that drowned security robot Hey, fellow humans, I thought we were all on the same page here? When news broke that a security robot mall-copping its way through the Washington Harbour gave up and drowned itself, we all rightly celebrated the admittedly small victory for mankind. Because, ya know, if drones are going to take our jobs they should at least be miserably toiling their mechanical lives away. So why am I now finding out that you went and built this thing a shrine? To make matters worse, you named the...

    When they weren’t calling the purple, ribbon-like light Steve, the Facebook group referred to it as a “proton arc,” notes ABC News. But when a Canadian physicist and astronomer who studies aurorae looked at the photos, he suspected something more was afoot—especially since proton aurorae, which happen when protons from solar winds hit Earth's magnetic field, are usually too dark to be visible.

    Donald Trump needs to get back on track: Steve Forbes Trump needs to get back on track: Steve Forbes 4 Hours Ago|02:32 Donald Trump has an opportunity to get his campaign back on track when he outlines his economic plan on Monday, following a bruising week, former GOP presidential candidate Steve Forbes said Monday. Recent polls show Hillary Clinton leads Trump nationally and in some key battleground states following Trump's public dispute with the Muslim parents of a U.S. Army captain killed in action in Iraq. Trump also clashed with his party's establishment, by refusing endorse Republican House Speaker Paul...

    Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, landed in some hot water this week after he gave an interview to a local TV station in his Sioux City district office and viewers noticed that he kept a Confederate flag on his desk. (SNIP) And we’ve lived with respecting the South and their way of life for 150 years and now, after 150 years, there has to be an issue about a Confederate flag?” King told Angelo that he had ancestors who had fought and died in the Union Army. “Our family cares a lot about unity but also about the truth and accuracy...

Ted Cruz (R-TX) 97% in today’s crucial primary elections and to warn that the GOP Establishment is determined to punish Trump and Cruz supporters, and they could even tacitly get behind Hillary Clinton as someone “they can do business with” if Cruz or Trump wins the nomination.

    Representative Steve King is among the leading Iowa Republicans basking in reflected glory from Ted Cruz’s big win in the caucuses. His endorsement in mid-November was a catalyst for Cruz’s rise in the Iowa polls. He ran interference when Cruz came under attack for his stands on the ethanol mandate and an amendment to a 2013 immigration bill. (SNIP) Donations from around the country would pour in if he faced a real threat in this year’s primary. (SNIP) Nevertheless, a primary with Ryan backing some challenger to King could become quite a spectacle. Plenty of wealthy establishment types loathe Cruz...

    Republican lawmakers – who are unhappy with the perceived “executive overreach” of the Obama administration – are forming a new task force to find “legislative solutions” to challenge the president’s power — and they picked a telling lawmaker to lead the effort. Rep. Steve King (R-IA), a passionate anti-immigrant hardliner, will serve as chairman. The task force will conduct hearings and investigations “relating to separation of powers and executive overreach issues,” according to the resolution approved on a voice vote on Wednesday. It’s unclear which of President Obama’s executive actions the task force will focus on, but immigration policies will...

    Steve King could not hold back the tears Monday night as Ted Cruz, the Iowa congressman’s annointed presidential candidate, stood at the podium in Des Moines and triumphantly rambled about Jesus, “courageous conservatives,” and the nebulous menace of something called the Washington Cartel. (SNIP) In the aftermath of Iowa, the 2016 Republican primary appears to have become a three-way race between Cruz (a King disciple), Donald Trump (arguably running to the right of both on immigration, King’s signature issue), and Marco Rubio (who King helped cow into opposing his own comprehensive immigration bill back in 2013). (SNIP) And King, of...

    Rep. Steve King is taking heat for what he posted on Twitter during the caucuses Monday night about Ben Carson. King, the Cruz campaigns national co-chair, retweeted CNNs Chris Moody about Carson’s break from the campaign trail before New Hampshire’s primary. Carson looks like he is out. Iowans need to know before they vote. Most will go to Cruz, I hope, King tweeted. In another tweet, the congressman said Carson’s next steps were equivalent of suspending.

    Congressman Steve King intends to endorse one of the 17 Republican presidential candidates “sometime later in the fall” and Donald Trump seems to be at or near the top of his list. “I think it’s fascinating to the world how Donald Trump can continue being Donald Trump and instead of getting weaker, he’s getting stronger,” King said. (SNIP) And King said that description applies to both his son, Jeff, and to Senator Cruz. In another corner, however, is King’s former chief of staff, Chuck Laudner. Laudner is Donald Trump’s state director. (SNIP) . “Furthermore, some of the efforts on many...

    As Republican leaders wrestle Democratic and conservative factions to pass a trade bill Friday, a handful of Republicans are turning on one of their most trusted policy leaders in Washington: Heritage Action. The campaign arm of the conservative Heritage Foundation alerted members Wednesday night it that as it stands now, it would score against the Trade Promotion Authority, a bill that gives Congress an up-or-down vote on future trade deals the president negotiates. The legislation is a major priority for President Obama as well as Republican leaders.

    Jeb Bush drifted into the room to a smattering of claps compelled by his aides – sporadic applause that quickly evaporated into the ether once he paused for an autograph. (SNIP) After his remarks, 24-year-old Eddie Failor approached Bush to commend him for hanging tough on immigration reform, another issue that’s raised the ire of conservatives. “Unlike some candidates recently in the news, he hasn’t backed down from what he believes on the issue,” Failor told U.S. News after his exchange, declining to name names.
