    House Speaker John Boehner called for the Obama administration to provide "all the facts" in the U.S. drone strike that accidentally killed an American and Italian hostage held at an al Qaeda compound. Boehner, R-Ohio, said he also expects House committees to look into the incident. "As President Obama indicated, this is not a time for excuses," Boehner said after offering condolences to the families of American Warren Weinstein and Giovanni Lo Porto, an Italian citizen. "The president announced an independent review is under way and that is entirely proper," Boehner said. "We need all the facts for the families,...

    A series of leaked emails authored by House Speaker John Boehner’s chief of staff Mike Sommers shows Boehner may have coordinated with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to exempt Congress from Obamacare. The emails were leaked Tuesday by Reid chief of staff David Krone, who actually has a history of this sort of thing.

    Is this really the reason why markets are rallying today? (or is it front-running the potential 'cone of silence' from a long-weekend in DC) We suspect neither, but Mike Krieger, having written extensively on the two-party political sham, notes the issue is that both the Democratic Party and the Republican Party are at their core the same on the big issues most affect these United States at this time. This past election should have been a wakeup call to the Republican establishment, but based on John Boehner’s recent actions, they have learned absolutely nothing. The Republican Party is imploding from...

    Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) indicated Thursday that the Republican-controlled House of Representatives that he leads may go ahead and provide the Obama administration with the funding it needs to implement a regulation that earlier this year Boehner himself called "an unambiguous attack on religious freedom in our country." At a Capitol Hill press conference on Thursday, Boehner said he believes "resolving" the regulation's attack on religious liberty may not be something for Congress to deal with because he thinks it may be one of those policy goals that "can sometimes best be done [through] other than legislative avenues." Boehner did...

    Freeway Sweeper Swiped CHP officials puzzled by overnight theft of large vehicle from Anaheim Caltrans lot. By Kimberly Edds The Orange County Register ANAHEIM – A freeway sweeper disappeared from a Caltrans yard overnight and the theft has authorities scratching their heads. "Strange things have disappeared over the years," said officer Denise Quesada of the California Highway Patrol. "But the bigger question is, why?" The sweeper, used to clear litter off freeways and keep it out of storm drains, was taken from the California Department of Transportation lot at Brookhurst Street and the Riverside (91) Freeway sometime after workers left...

    So Much More Than Lott So, already by Christmas the Republicans took their newly revealed "racist" Trent Lott and chopped him off like a hood ornament and left him folded up in the glove compartment like a paper napkin full of forgotten fruitcake. Nice crisis resolution, huh? Neat image management, right? Not so fast. One problem. Trent Lott is NOT a racist. Nobody believes Lott is a racist. His enemies don't believe that. His friends don't believe that. And nobody believes Trent Lott believes America would have been better off if Strom Thurmond had been elected president in 1948. What...
