    The banking and financial sectors are anxiously bracing for firebrand California Rep. Maxine Waters to claim the chairmanship of the House Financial Services Committee, unsure of what her leadership on the key panel will mean. Waters, a frequent and vocal critic of President Trump and his administration, is seen as one of Wall Street’s biggest adversaries in Congress thanks in large part to her calls for stricter rules on the nation’s biggest banks and opposition to moves from the White House to roll back financial regulations implemented during the last recession. She has toned down her rhetoric since the midterm...
  • Maxine Waters Unfit to Chair House Financial Services Committee

    Considering her record and documented history of poor ethical and moral fitness, it’s outrageous that Maxine Waters is up for chair of the ultra-powerful House Financial Services Committee, which has jurisdiction over the country’s banking system, economy, housing, and insurance. With Democrats taking control of the House of Representatives, come January the 14-term California congresswoman is expected to head the committee, which also has jurisdiction over monetary policy, international finance, and efforts to combat terrorist financing. Throughout her storied political career, Waters has been embroiled in numerous controversies, including abusing her power to enrich family members, getting a communist dictator...

    WASHINGTON -- House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who said she has no doubts she'll be elected speaker of the House by her colleagues, said in her first interview since Election Day that she's proud to be branded "a San Francisco liberal... as that, the San Francisco values of St. Francis of Assisi, which I'm proud to be an instrument of God's deed." Pelosi told CNN that she intends to bring for a vote initiatives that have enjoyed bipartisan support in Congress but haven't been brought to the floor by GOP leadership, including protection for DREAMers, comprehensive immigration reform, gun...

Her socialist positions made her popular with Bernie Sanders and other of the like. After all, she is a member of the Democratic Socialists of America. On Saturday, Ocasio-Cortez celebrated her birthday in an odd way: by bragging about her "accomplishments" and the life she's built over the last seven years....

    American Thinker ^ | July 10, 2018 | Monica Showalter
    Her mind wandering and her words not coming out right, House minority leader Nancy Pelosi, 78, is sounding more addled than ever, unable to express any clear line of thought. This is consequential if you are a Democrat, because she utterly refuses to step aside as leader of her party. In fact, she's convinced everyone loves her. Look at this landscape of apparent dementia, based on her hour-long interview with Rolling Stone . Asked about her leadership and the pressure from Democrats for her step down, Pelosi replied: I think some of it is a little bit on the sexist...

    The head of a conservative watchdog group said Thursday that Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters is inciting "mob violence" with her call for protesters to confront Trump officials in public, as he urged a formal ethics investigation on Capitol Hill. "When you’re out there ... inciting mob violence against sitting Trump Cabinet members, that doesn’t obviously reflect credibly on the House," Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton told "Fox & Friends." "And the House has to decide whether they’re going to allow its members to use the House as a platform and its power and position to attack and incite violence." Judicial...

    Effort to highlight border separations violated chamber rulesRep. Ted Lieu of California violated House rules Friday by playing a recording of crying children who were separated from their parents at the border, ignoring a presiding officer who implored him to stop. Mr. Lieu, a Democrat who frequently rails against President Trump online, refused from the lectern at the front of the chamber, which was empty except for dozens of tourists who looked down from the gallery. “I think the American people need to hear this,” Mr. Lieu said, brushing off Rep. Karen Handel, Georgia Republican who happened to be presiding...

    A highly publicized extramarital affair didn’t end Mark Sanford’s political career. Nor did the revelation, less than a month before a 2013 special election for Congress, that he had to go to court because his ex-wife had accused him of trespassing. The National Republican Congressional Committee’s decision to cut off funding to him that year was also not a fatal blow. He won his next elections. Then came Donald Trump. Sanford has been one of the president’s most vocal Republican critics in Congress, and Republican primary voters punished him for it. Sanford lost Tuesday night to Katie Arrington, a state...

    Democrat John Conyers’ bedside wish for his son to take his Michigan House seat, after being forced from Congress over a sexual misconduct scandal, likely won’t come true -- now that the younger Conyers reportedly has failed to qualify for the ballot. The Wayne County Clerk Office’s elections staff said last week that John Conyers III, the ex-congressman’s son, was ineligible because he didn’t submit enough valid signatures on his application to run in the Aug. 7 Democratic primary, according to local reports. The review was launched after a challenge from another Conyers family member. Clerk Cathy Garrett was expected...

    The House cleared legislation on Monday to end the three-day government shutdown, sending it to President Trump for his signature. Lawmakers voted 266-150 to reopen the federal government and extend funding through Feb. 8, as well as provide money for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) for six years. A government shutdown went into effect early Saturday morning after most Senate Democrats and a handful of Republicans blocked a House-passed temporary spending bill that would have lasted through Feb. 16. Democrats had pledged not to vote for a spending measure unless lawmakers had an agreement on how to ensure protections...

    R.I. (WPRI) – Rhode Island is now just 157 residents away from losing one of its two seats in the U.S. House, which would give the state a single vote there for the first time since George Washington was president, according to an analysis of newly released population data. Kimball Brace, the reapportionment expert who has been involved in drawing legislative and congressional districts in Rhode Island since the early 1980s, ran the numbers Wednesday after the U.S. Census Bureau announced Rhode Island had added about 2,000 residents between July 2016 and July 2017.

    1 min. video of nut Brad Sherman at link. (CNSNews.com) - Rep. Brad Sherman (D.-Calif.) said in a speech on the House floor on Thursday that President Donald Trump has “an uncontrollable person need to pour disgusting liquids on anything associated with President Obama.” In July, Rep. Sherman filed articles of impeachment against President Trump—that have gone nowhere in the House—and last week put out a press release entitled “The Case for Impeaching Donald J. Trump.” In his speech on the House floor, which was televised on C-SPAN and reported in the Congressional Record , Sherman did not specify exactly...

    Nine Republicans balk at risky ‘repeal-and-replace’ strategyThe House passed a 2017 budget Friday that lays the groundwork for dismantling Obamacare, brushing aside intra-GOP anxiety and defiant Democrats to launch the repeal-and-replace strategy staked out by President-elect Donald Trump. Nine Republicans balked at the politically thorny plan — the budget doesn’t balance, and the party hasn’t coalesced around a health bill of its own. But their defections weren’t nearly enough to tilt the 227-198 vote, which imposes a Jan. 27 deadline for crafting legislation that guts the Affordable Care Act. “The ‘Unaffordable’ Care Act will soon be history!” Mr. Trump posted...

    Pamela EngelNovember 30, 2016 Top-level members of President-elect Donald Trump's transition team celebrated Democrats choosing to keep Nancy Pelosi as House minority leader, a decision that came after bruising losses for the party in this year's general election. Pelosi, who has been in Congress for 30 years and led House Democrats for the past 14, faced a challenge from Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan, who said the party needed new leadership after Hillary Clinton's shocking loss to Trump in the general election. The House and Senate are also controlled by Republicans. Some top Republicans seemed happy with the continuation of the...

    Greg Nash Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-Fla.) is spearheading gun control legislation that would keep firearms out of the hands of suspected terrorists, but it is unclear whether Republican leadership will give the bill a vote. The Terrorist Firearms Prevention Act announced Friday will serve as a companion bill to the compromise gun legislation introduced by Susan Collins (R-Maine) in the Senate. The gun legislation would prevent suspected terrorists from purchasing firearms. The bipartisan legislation appears to have Democratic support and is backed by a handful of Republicans, including Reps. Bob Dold (Ill.), Scott Rigell (Va.), Peter King (N.Y.) and...
