  • Corker declines to say whether he voted for Blackburn

    The Hill ^ | November 3, 2018
    Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker (R) declined to tell a reporter Thursday whether he had voted for Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R) or her opponent, Phil Bredesen (D) in the race to replace him in the Senate when asked about his vote. Corker has endorsed Blackburn, but his support for the Trump-aligned congresswoman is seen as reluctant amid his own criticism of the Trump administration. "I think you know, so, I’ll leave it at that," he told the Nashville Tennessean on Thursday. Though adding of Blackburn, he reportedly said: "Yeah, I endorsed her early on."

    Conservative Firing Line ^ | October 31, 2018 | Faye Higbee
    Is blocking truth censorship? Google Ads blocked Tennessee GOP candidate Marsha Blackburn from releasing a campaign ad for Google search users because the “content didn’t meet Google standards.” The 30 second ad titled “Stop the Mob” showed protesters screaming during a moment of silence for the victims of the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting, and a protester kicking a cameraman. She also had a 15 second ad. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g-AR6PIUKJo According to the Daily Caller, Google Ads, an online advertising platform, would not allow the Tennessee Republican’s campaign for Senate promote two campaign videos as search ads because the content doesn’t meet Google’s standards,...

    On Sunday, Marsha Blackburn, who is running for the Senate seat vacated by empty suit Bob Corker against Democrat former governor Phil Bredesen, held a rally with recently discovered conservative rock star Lindsey Graham. This was the day after the massacre of eleven worshipers at a Pittsburgh synagogue and Blackburn asked for a moment of silence. That isn’t what she got. Naturally, as Republicans have been pushing the “Democrats stand for mobs not jobs” theme (FACT CHECK: True since at least 1968), Blackburn cranked out ads showing the flower of the Democrat party in full bloom All was well until...
  • Saudis OK Billions in Arms Sales, Congress Not So Sure

    WASHINGTON: Even as Congress inches toward cutting off arms sales to Saudi Arabia over the disappearance of Saudi dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi and Riyadh’s grinding war in Yemen, the United States is preparing to ship $14.5 billion worth of arms to the increasingly embattled kingdom. Those weapons include “helicopters, tanks, ships, weapons, and training,” a Pentagon spokesman said, confirming they were part of the $110 billion worth of arms the Trump administration pledged to sell Saudi over the next decade. While defense and diplomatic officials declined to put a timetable on the delivery of the equipment — or offer specifics...

    The New York Post ^ | October 12, 2018 | Benny Avni
    Since this week’s surprise announcement that Nikki Haley would depart by year’s end, everyone wants to know who’ll replace America’s UN ambassador — who was first dismissed, then hated, then feared and eventually appreciated, heck, even loved (at least by some). The answer, obviously, is up to the never-predictable President Trump, so most names bandied about are speculative, with many driven by wishful thinking. So here’s a wish: Christopher Burnham. Never heard of him? You may soon. Sure, there are other worthy candidates; Washington reporters come up with new ones daily. The much-advertised front-runner, former Deputy National Security Adviser Dina...

    Tennessean ^ | Oct 6, 2018 | Joey Garrison
    Republican Marsha Blackburn has surged to an 8-point lead over Democrat Phil Bredesen in a new CBS poll of Tennessee's U.S Senate race — a bounce that coincides with the nation's furious debate over the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. The poll, released Sunday, found Blackburn, a conservative Williamson County congressman, with support from 50 percent of registered voters in Tennessee, compared to 42 percent for Bredesen, a former two-term Tennessee governor. It comes as the pollster says this race and others where Democrats are seeking to win in traditionally Republican states have "nationalized." The collection of polls...

    Sen. Bob Corker, a Tennesee Republican who at times has been at odds with President Trump, told Hill.TV on Tuesday evening that he is confident Senate Republicans will have enough votes to confirm Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh by "no later than Saturday." Corker also accused Democrats of having "overplayed their hand" in leveling accusations of sexual misconduct and assault by several women and demanding an FBI investigation

    CBS News ^ | 08/18/2018
    The ranks of forgotten Republicans are growing. Some were forced out, such as Tim Pawlenty, a former two-term Minnesota governor who lost this week's bid for a political comeback. Some, such as the retiring Republican Sen. Bob Corker, chose to leave on their own. Others still serve, but with a muted voice. Whether members of Congress, governors or state party leaders, they are struggling to fit into President Donald Trump's Republican Party. The expanding list of marginalized GOP leaders underscores how thoroughly Mr. Trump has dominated — and changed — the Republican Party in the nearly two years since he...

    Give the appointed ones the advantage of incumbency. Corker wouldn't do it. Neither would Flake. It can only be because they're not real Republicans. When 2019 comes around Alexander and McConnell should do the same. Most interesting would be who of the 3(or more) would Ducey appoint.

    Democrats in Congress demanded this week that Marina Gross, the translator in the room with President Trump and President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland on Monday, come to Washington and tell them what was discussed in the closed-door meeting. Republicans, even anti-Trump ones, are resisting the effort. When House Intelligence Democrats brought the subpoena to a vote, every Republican on the committee voted against it.Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) explained why subpoenaing the interpreter could set a dangerous precedent. It could be the "last time" the U.S. president ever meet privately with a foreign leader. "Absolutely not," Lindsey Graham said when...

    National Review ^ | July 16, 2018 | MAIREAD MCARDLE
    Republican lawmakers were left shaking their heads after President Trump’s Monday’s press conference with Russian president Vladimir Putin, in which Trump declined to endorse the American intelligence community’s assessment that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election. Senator John McCain (R., Ariz.) called it “one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory” and a “tragic mistake” in a statement. “No prior president has ever abased himself more abjectly before a tyrant,” McCain said. “The damage inflicted by President Trump’s naiveté, egotism, false equivalence, and sympathy for autocrats is difficult to calculate.” House speaker Paul Ryan also...
  • Senate takes symbolic shot at Trump tariffs

    the Hill ^ | 11/07/18 | JORDAIN CARNEY
    The Senate on Wednesday took a symbolic shot at President Trump’s trade policy amid anxiety on Capitol Hill over his tariff strategy. Senators voted 88-11 to instruct lawmakers hashing out a deal on a government funding bill to include language “providing a role for Congress” on tariffs implemented for national security reasons, known as Section 232 of the trade laws. The vote is nonbinding, meaning lawmakers don’t have to add trade language into the funding bill. But the vote margin, with more senators supporting it than the amount needed to override a veto, underscores the depth of concern on Capitol...

    There are Trillions At Stake.   There is no upper limit to what congress is willing to do to stop President Trump from turning off the lobbyist funding.  Without influence in DC there can be no affluence in DC.  That’s why McConnell cancelled the recess. If the president continues to remain focused exclusively on what is in the U.S. best interests, he must be stopped.  Politicians in DC cannot just sit-by and allow the U.S. economy to be based on the interests of Americans; it would mean the destruction of years of central planning by DC Lobbyists, multinational banks, Wall Street and...

    The first thing I noticed when I walked into the Trump rally in Nashville Tuesday night ... was that Trace Adkins was singing. Not bad! (Hey, it’s Nashville.) The second thing I noticed was that Jim Acosta wasn’t smiling, virtually the only person in the auditorium who wasn’t. If you don’t like Adkins, either you don’t like music or your Trump Derangement Syndrome is so great you couldn’t even groove to Bach or The Beatles in their heydays. Too bad for Jim. ... But enough diversion. Trump’s on. They clearly love him in Nashville, but not Lamar Alexander and, especially,...

    There are truths, and there are truth bombs. Occasionally, though, there are truth nukes. Someone asks Corker about fiscal responsibility. He answers, “Yeah, I’m just over it. Nobody cares. The President isn’t going to deal with it, he made it clear in the campaign.” @WRCB— Michelle Heron (@MichelleWRCB) May 18, 2018 Somewhere Paul Ryan is sitting alone amid the rubble of entitlement reform, all alone and sobbing like Burgess Meredith at the end of that “Twilight Zone” episode.In isolation, that tweet makes it sound like Corker is blaming Trump. Not really. Watch the clip below and you’ll find him...

    Making the click-through worthwhile: Iran deal defenders insist they always knew Tehran was lying all along; some overheated arguments about masculinity and books for kids; how most of the people making the loudest arguments in public discourse didn’t bother to do the homework; and a really strange and implausible accusation against Mitch McConnell.Wait, Why Did We Ever Trust the Iranians Again?Fans of the Iran deal scoff at Israeli prime minister Bibi Netanyahu’s presentation about the long and sordid history of Iran’s secret nuclear program: “There was nothing we didn’t already know.” “Everything he said was already known.” “There is nothing...
