    U.S. Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Fla., introduced the “Border State Protection Act" on Tuesday. The freshman Republican’s bill would let border state governors submit their governments’ expenses from dealing with the flood of illegal immigrants to the federal government for reimbursement. Yoho’s proposal also ensures the states flexibility to ensure the federal government doesn’t sue them over their handling of illegal immigration. “The Obama administration has failed to achieve operational control of our southern border while simultaneously enticing individuals to make the dangerous journey to America,” Yoho said on Tuesday, before taking aim at U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder for suing...

    Roll Call's 218 ^ | April 30, 2014 | Matt Fuller and Steven T. Dennis
    Updated 6:37 p.m. | Sen. Ted Cruz gathered a group of House conservatives in his office Tuesday night, talking about immigration and House GOP leadership elections slated for after the midterm elections. As CQ Roll Call first reported last October, Cruz held a secret meeting with members at Tortilla Coast during the height of the government shutdown drama. Many of these same Republicans are the agitators who aren’t happy with Speaker John A. Boehner. The Texas Republican gathered roughly 10 members of the GOP Conference at 8 p.m. Tuesday for a 90-minute session that included candy bars, crackers and soda....

    Rep. Pete Olson (R-TX) has introduced an Articles of Impeachment resolution against Attorney General Eric Holder for his role in Operation Fast and Furious and other scandals of President Barack Obama’s administration. Seven congressman have signed onto the resolution thus far in addition to Olson. They are Reps.

The Articles of Impeachment has four different sections.

    A Texas Republican plans to introduce a resolution of Articles of Impeachment for Attorney General Eric Holder on Thursday. Rep. Pete Olson’s (R-Texas) office said this morning that “this was not a decision made lightly,” but comes with Holder’s “pattern of disregard for the rule of law and refusal to be forthright with Congress and the American people” since being held in contempt in June 2012. That 255-67 vote on criminal contempt, which included 17 Democrats, was tied to the Fast and Furious scandal and marked the first time Congress has found an attorney general in contempt. A measure of...

    Amidst all the blather about Republicans going over the cliff and taking the world with them, a tantalizing bit of truth was spoken on today's Morning Joe. Doomsaying notwithstanding, the GOP is actually positioned to do OK in 2014. Making the comment particularly surprising was its source: Barack Obama's former senior adviser himself—David Axelrod.

    Matthews...asked if Yoho questioned Obama’s legitimacy. Yoho said “No. He’s been under enough scrutiny. We need to move on from that,” and even pointed to a recent town hall meeting in which the president’s birth certificate came up. Matthews asked Yoho: “So you accept the fact that he’s a born American,” to which the Sunshine State pol said “no comment.” “No comment?” Matthew said. “In other words, you question the president’s legitimacy.” When pressed further, Yoho said “I haven’t studied it enough to spend the time on it to come back with an intelligent answer, so I will not respond.”...
  • Congressman Steve Stockman Questions Obama Birth Certificate; Foreign Student?

    WASHINGTON – To hear Rep. Steve Stockman, R-Texas, describe it, the difference between President Obama and Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas – on the question of their eligibility for the highest office in the land – may be a case of comparing apples and oranges. ~ The congressman said with Cruz, it is a legal question of whether he is eligible to serve as president – whereas the issue with Obama is not really about where he was born, but whether his documentation is authentic. ~ Obama, on the other hand, is the subject of Stockman’s proposed legislation calling for a...

    Steve Stockman (Texas, 36th District) has responded to Ted Cruz’ challenge to House Republicans by filing a 19 point resolution to defund ObamaCare. Mr. Steve Stockman is not afraid of a fight. “I applaud the dozen Republican Senators who sent a letter to Majority Leader Reid explaining they will not vote for any continuing resolution that funds ObamaCare. But as Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee have said, ‘The House must refuse to fund Obamacare’ because every appropriations bill originates in the House and the House is the only chamber that Republicans control. My resolution includes 19 whereas statements that...

    Republican Rep. Ted Yoho said a tax on tanning salons included in President Obama’s health care overhaul law is “racist” against white people. At a town hall meeting in his north Florida district earlier this month, the freshman Tea Party favorite suggested the 10 percent tax was discriminatory because “dark skin” people don’t using tanning booths. “I had a little fun with [House Speaker] Boehner and told him about the sun tanning tax. He goes, ‘I didn’t know it was in there,’” Yoho told his constituents in an audio clip of the event posted on Right Wing Watch, a blog...

    This has got to be one of the best, if not the best, political ads of the season. Regardless of where you stand as far as incumbents vs their challengers go, you must admit that this was one great political ad. It very well could be the reason enough voters were influenced to pull the lever for Tea party challenger, Ted Yoho of Gainesville FL, over the 12 term incumbent, Cliff Stearns, in the primary for Florida's 3 district.While I am always happy to see a Tea Party candidate defeat a Rino, I must admit to being a bit confused...
