    Anti-Brett Kavanaugh protesters flooded Capitol Hill for weeks before his eventual confirmation to the Supreme Court, walking hallways in protest, holding loud demonstrations and confronting senators in their office buildings. One such protester named Alethea Torrellas Shapiro had been attempting to harass senators on the Hill for days and regularly used her school-aged children to do so. Shapiro is an activist who calls extremist feminist activist Linda Sarsour her hero and regularly goes on profanity-laced tirades against GOP senators like Chuck Grassley. After Kavanaugh’s confirmation, Shapiro wrote a public post on Facebook describing how she intended to use her four...

    An anti-Kavanaugh protester who brought her children to confront Sen. Bill Cassidy, R-La., this week on Capitol Hill ended up receiving a talking-to of her own from the senator. "Senator Cassidy, can you please apologize to my children for ruining their futures?" the protester called out to Cassidy in a video uploaded to Facebook on Tuesday. ---SNIP--- Cassidy immediately replied after removing his earphones and turning to two young children sitting in the Capitol hallway. "I know your parents are using you as tools. In the future, if somebody makes an allegation against you, and there's no proof for it,...

    Republican Sen. Bill Cassidy pushed back against a protester this week after she confronted him about his unwavering support for Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh. The Louisiana senator was walking down a Senate Office hallway Monday when a liberal activist and former Bernie Sanders staffer accused him of supporting a rapist. “Why wouldn’t I support Kavanaugh?” Mr. Cassidy asked, according to a video tweeted by The Daily Caller’s reporter-at-large Benny Johnson. “Because rapists are bad,” the protester responded.

    Townhall ^ | 05/17/2018 | John Dempsey
    One of President Trump’s signature promises from his 2016 campaign was to build that “tall, beautiful wall.” Often, he would receive loud, raucous praise when he talked about it. Trump has been in office for almost a year and a half now. He has received expected pushback from Democrats. But he has also felt resistance from some Republicans. Both parties have been stingy with funding, leaving very few options. However, Sen. Bill Cassidy recently proposed a creative idea. Sen. Cassidy suggested that money seized from drug cartels should be used to fund the wall. It is a simple idea that...

    Editor's note: This column was co-authored by Om Narayanan.  During a CNN health-care debate on September 25, 2017 Sen. Bill Cassidy stated, “You know, first, most Planned Parenthood settings are in urban areas, urban areas that have lots of OB/GYNs…Now, as it turns out, the folks who don’t have access to those cancer screenings live in rural areas. They live in areas where there are not enough physicians. So the idea is that we want someone to have to drive — a lower-income person drive — three hours to a Planned Parenthood facility there to get her screening, or would...

    Via Raw Story, I did not think the GOP would be setting health-care policy in 2017 based on the opinions of a former host of “The Man Show.”We should be guided by the opinions of the former host of “Celebrity Apprentice” instead.It’s no coincidence, I think, that Cassidy is eyeing the “Kimmel test” after telling the Times this in March about the first iteration of the House GOP’s health-care bill: “The folks who Hillary Clinton called the ‘deplorables’ are actually those who want better coverage, who we’d be hurting if we don’t change this bill,” Mr. [X] said, noting...

    Two Republican senators on Monday unveiled the outlines of an ObamaCare replacement plan that they hope would be able to attract some Democratic support. The plan, from Sens. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) and Susan Collins (R-Maine), contains less drastic changes than some Republican proposals. It envisions keeping many of ObamaCare’s taxes in place in order to provide revenue for the replacement plan and gives states the choice of whether they want to keep ObamaCare. Under the plan, known as the Patient Freedom Act, state legislatures would have the choice of whether to keep ObamaCare operating in their states, complete with its...

    American Thinker ^ | 01/23/2017 | Howard J. Warner
    Senator Susan Collins of Maine and Senator Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, two very different politicians, plan to unveil their proposal for replacing Obamacare on Monday.  This combination of sponsors gives hope that a compromise will be possible with Senator Charles Schumer of New York, the minority leader.  This is necessary since the Democrats can filibuster any replacement plan.  Budgetary reconciliation process can allow removal of Obamacare funding via a simple majority but does not allow for replacement legislation.  Replacement legislation is required to remove the negative impact for Republicans and to the 13 million users of the federal exchanges resulting...

    The Senate voted 49-40 Monday evening to confirm John B. King Jr., President Barack Obama’s nominee, as secretary of education. A total of 11 senators did not vote on King’s confirmation, while those who voted against him cited his loyalty to the system and support for Common Core education standards. King, 41, has been the acting secretary of the Department of Education since January, after Arne Duncan stepped down from the Cabinet post at the end of last year. Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., secretary of education under President George H.W. Bush, spoke in support of King on the Senate floor....

    Forty-seven Senate Republicans are signaling in an open letter to Iran and the White House that a deal over Tehran’s nuclear program will be at risk once President Obama leaves office. “It has come to our attention while observing your nuclear negotiations with our government that you may not fully understand our constitutional system,” the senators wrote in the letter, which was first reported by Bloomberg. “Thus, we are writing to bring to your attention two features of our Constitution — the power to make binding international agreements and the different character of federal offices — which you should seriously...

    WASHINGTON, December 24, 2014 — For tens of millions of southerners the December 6 runoff loss of Louisiana U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu to Rep. Bill Cassidy represented the epic opening of a new age in America. This region is now a solid conservative south for the first time since Democrats seized control just after the end of the Civil War. For a region of the nation that stretches from the Carolinas to Texas, this is massive and so is the impact of this new Red, White and Blue American Wave. Here a New South Rises. How the new south...

    The defeat of Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu by Republican Rep. Bill Cassidy in last weekend's Louisiana runoff ends an election year that has been very successful for Republicans -- and has implications for 2016. Some observations: (1) Democrats relied heavily on legacy candidates -- and lost nevertheless. Mary Landrieu's father, Moon Landrieu, was elected to the Louisiana legislature in 1960 and as mayor of New Orleans in 1970 and 1974. Her father's anti-segregationist legacy helped Mary Landrieu appeal to black voters and win narrow victories in 1996, 2002 and 2008. It wasn't enough in 2014. Other defeated Democratic candidates this...

    This week U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) appeared as a guest on my radio program, Ringside Politics, on WGSO 990 AM in New Orleans.Over the past 16 years as host of Ringside Politics, I have interviewed Senator Landrieu over a dozen times. In the past, she would call in to promote a particular issue or cause, usually engaging in pleasant conversation or good natured debate.Our relationship certainly changed in our last radio interview, which occurred over a year ago on the contentious topic of Internet taxes. It was a testy exchange as the Senator and I clashed on whether the...

    Republicans will hold at least 246 House seats come January, according to election results on Saturday, giving the GOP a commanding majority that matches the party's post-World War II high during Democratic President Harry S. Truman's administration. The GOP retained control of two seats in runoffs in Louisiana, expanding the advantage for Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, who can afford defections from his increasingly conservative caucus and still get legislation passed. Combined with the Republican takeover of the Senate, Congress will be all-GOP for the final two years of President Barack Obama's second term.

    When Louisiana Democrat Sen. Mary Landrieu lost her re-election runoff on Saturday it put Barack Obama in the record books as the two-term president with the most midterm losses for his party. The record previously was held by Harry Truman. Truman’s Democratic Party lost 74 seats in 1946 and 1950, while under Obama the Democrats have lost a total of 75 seats in 2010 and 2014. He could lose one more if Republican Martha McSally beats Democratic Rep. Ron Barber in Arizona in an election recount, Breitbart News reports. McSally is currently ahead by only 200 votes. …

    With Mary Landrieu exiting the Senate, the usual rounds of finger pointing and recriminations have already begun. In the eyes of her supporters, the reasons are numerous and obvious. It couldn’t possibly have anything to do with the unpopularity of the President or the issues she espoused. No, the only reason that a Republican will occupy that seat next year is that the South is full of hateful, bigoted, stars and bars waving racists and homophobes. This, they will claim, is the result of an ongoing process which began simmering after the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964,...

    In what is likely a sign of things to come in 2016, the conservative Koch brothers-backed group Americans For Prosperity released an ad on Wednesday seeking to tie Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) to controversial ObamaCare adviser Jonathan Gruber. Gruber made headlines earlier this year for saying it was the “stupidity of the American voter” that helped the Obama administration pass the Affordable Care Act. The ad says Landrieu repeated President Obama’s ObamaCare “Lie of the Year” that if you liked your healthcare plan you could keep it, before launching into the Gruber attack. “An ObamaCare architect bragged about deceiving Americans...
