    Personal trauma can cloud ones judgment, so we can to some degree forgive U.S. District Court Judge Joan Humphrey Lefkow for urging members of Congress to do something to curb public criticism of federal judges. Lefkows husband and mother were recently killed by a deranged man who blamed her for a life turned sour. The attacks were not politically motivated. Yet somehow, Lefkow has drawn a link between the killings and recent criticisms of the federal judiciary by Republicans, in a way that unnecessarily inflames the debate. While we wouldnt expect that members of Congress would rebuke a grieving widow...
  • Issa: FBI "Has No Choice"; Must Indict Clinton

    The New American ^ | Feb 5, 2016 | C. Mitchell Shaw
    The FBI "really has no choice" but to recommend an indictment against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, according to former House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif., shown). His statement echoes Tom DeLay's claim last week that the FBI is "ready to indict." While much of the focus has been on the fact that Clinton passed classified information over an unsecured server, Issa pointed out that, as bad as that is, there is more to it: These are documents that are not only highly classified, but she took them from government. Let's not forget when she left government, she...

    During an interview on the FOX Business Network's Mornings with Maria, Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay lashed out against the media for protecting Donald Trump. "The media won't report what's really happening on the ground... They will not investigate Donald Trump. When have you seen a story written about Donald Trump's sleazy business practices? There's plenty of stories out there about that. The media is protecting Donald Trump either because they want him to be the nominee against Hillary Clinton or they're big buddies of his. Most of the media comes from New York and they are buddies," he...

    Former House Majority Leader Tom Delay told Cavuto the GOP voters need to understand that the delegates pick the nominee. Tom Delay: Its not stealing the nomination. Its the process. People need to realize that this is not an election of a president. This is the nomination of a candidate. And theres a process and theres rules and everybody has a fair shot at those rules. But in the end, the representatives, the delegates make the decision at the convention one way or another. And if no candidate gets to the convention with the majority of the votes then the...

    California Rep. Darrell Issa says the FBI has a "slam dunk" case against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and senior aide Huma Abedin that it's itching to prosecute. The former House Oversight chairman's statement on Friday comes just days after former Republican House Majority Leader Tom DeLay said his contacts in the agency will "blow the whistle and go public" if Attorney General Loretta Lynch does not prosecute.

    On Thursday’s “Cavuto: Coast to Coast” on the Fox Business Network, former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX) took aim at Speaker-Elect Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) 58% for not signaling he will do more to overturn what he deemed to be a backroom budget deal. DeLay pointed out how two-thirds of the House GOP voted against it and that from here on out, Ryan needs to lay down a marker showing he’s willing to lead Republicans in the right direction. “He talks a good game but he’s already started in his action of maybe being another Boehner,” DeLay said. “I...

    Donald Trump's shock slide from Republican presidential front-runner to second banana behind Dr. Ben Carson can mean only one thing — the billionaire developer's shot at the GOP nomination is cooked, former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay tells Newsmax TV. "Trump is on his way out. People have had enough of him, he has no substance, and he's on his way out. That's what I'm seeing," DeLay, a Texas Republican who now hosts a Washington Times radio show, said Wednesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show." But could Carson, a retired pediatric neurosurgeon who has never been elected to public...

    Tom DeLay appeared on Newsmax TV yesterday, where he told host Steve Malzberg that, just as he had predicted, all Hell is now breaking loose because of the Supreme Court ruling striking down gay marriage bans. Things are now so out of control, DeLay said, that he even knows about a "secret memo" from the Justice Department aimed at legalizing "12 new perversions," including bestiality and pedophilia. "We've already found a secret memo coming out of the Justice Department," DeLay claimed. "They're now going to go after 12 new perversions, things like bestiality, polygamy, having sex with little boys and...

    A number of prominent conservatives seem convinced that Martin Luther King, Jr., would have fought marriage equality. They are probably wrong. In their fight against the Supreme Courts same-sex marriage decision, leading conservatives have been turning to an unlikely source for inspiration: Martin Luther Kings Letter from Birmingham Jail (PDF), the collection of notes that King smuggled out of his jail cell during his eight-day detention for protesting the Jim Crow laws that sanctioned discrimination across the South. The letter is one of the most iconic documents from of the Civil Rights era and includes Kings observations on the injustice...

    If you tried to find out what recently happened in court ending the criminal case against former GOP Congressman Tom DeLay, almost all the results that come up are from conservative sites. The left-wing news media deliberately ignored the story of his total legal exoneration earlier this month. Contrast this with the multiple, lengthy front-page articles than ran for years gleefully covering the progression of the politically motivated attacks on him. I saved an article taking up the top half of the front page of The New York Times from 2006 - with a huge photo of DeLay high-fiving my...

    President Obamas left-leaning political ideology combined with sympathies for Islam acquired from being raised by a Muslim stepfather paralyze him as he faces the threat posed by the Islamic jihadist group ISIS, former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay told WND in an interview. In defending America against radical Islamic terrorism, Barack Obama cannot be trusted, DeLay said. Barack Obama was raised a Muslim, and he claims he is a Christian, and I cant say for sure whether hes a Christian or not, but he has shown over the last few years that he has great sympathies with Islam, DeLay explained....

    Should the grand jury have been transparent or secretive --- concerning the evidence presented by the district attorney, etcetera? Once again, we have a Travis County grand jury indicting yet another high-profile Republican. One was Tom Delay (then House Majority Leader from 2003 to 2005) and now presidential aspirant Rick Perry, governor of Texas. The evidence that is presented is under the discretion of the district/prosecuting attorney. This attorney has strong control over the process and the room itself, and there is no one present to provide counter argument(s), and, finally, there is no judge present. If you are a...

    Pelosi made a pariah out of Tom DeLay and is now trying to do the same for Texas Governor Rick Perry Given my deep-rooted cynicism towards most politicians, meeting Tom DeLay at a conference last month, came as a bracing tonic. My eyes tend to glaze over any time a Canadian or American politician is in sight, (mercifully, I dont run in to too many British ones) but meeting DeLay shot permanent holes straight through my theyre-all-the-same theories. In or out of office, DeLay, sidelined at the peak of his career by a ravening pack of Democrat wolves led by...

    A Texas court ruled Thursday to overturn the conviction of former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Texas), who was found guilty of money laundering in 2010. According to KHOU 11 and the Associated Press, the Third Court of Appeals in Austin said the case's evidence was "legally insufficient to sustain DeLay's convictions," formally acquitting the former congressman on charges of money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering.

    SAN ANTONIO God must have had one heck of a powdered wig, or former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay would have made a lousy history teacher. The Sugar Land Republican made news this week when he voiced his concern that the government is becoming secular because "we stopped realizing that God created this nation, that he wrote the Constitution, that it's based on biblical principles" during a recent television appearance with San Antonio Pastor Matt Hagee. James Madison, the lead author of the United States Constitution and the fourth president of the United States who died in 1836, could...

    Ronnie Earle's problematic record as Travis County District Attorney is coming back to haunt him - yet again. Earle, a Democrat, made a name for himself with some clever legal sophistry: specifically, he convinced a gullible jury in liberal Travis County, Texas, that former Republican House Speaker Tom DeLay was guilty of "money laundering" related to his funneling of campaign contributions to Republican candidates. A Texas Appeals Court recently dismissed the charges, ruling DeLay had broken no laws. Delay had called the prosecution the criminalization of politics. Now, another case overseen by Earle in the liberal enclave of Travis County...

    ".....DeLay began by admitting Republicans did lose the fight over the budget and the debt ceiling. Echoing the words of House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), he said, They put up a good fight. O appreciate everyone that voted against the deal yesterday and stood up and fought. Unfortunately, they didnt have enough votes to carry out the fight and win. When Baldwin brought up Republicans crumbling approval ratings, Delay accused her of pushing a media narrative with those numbers. I have no narrative, sir, she responded. Im just right in the middle, just asking the question. Im not attacking you,...

    Conservative Intel ^ | 9/30/13 | David Freddoso
    A lot of conservatives are now trying to minimize the damage the GOP suffered after the 21-day government shutdown of 1995-1996. They point out, correctly, that even though President Clinton was re-elected, Republicans held the House (losing just three seats on net) and gained two Senate seats. What they fail to mention or appreciate is that this was not a good performance for the GOP that year...They narrowly lost four other close contests, and have since managed to gain only one of those four missed seats.
