    Anthony Fauci looks to be skating on thin ice with President Trump, despite — or perhaps because of — a growing sense that he is the most trusted expert on the coronavirus crisis. The White House moved on Monday to squash suggestions that Fauci could be ousted from the president’s task force on the crisis. And Fauci himself sought to shore up his position during the White House press briefing, when he walked back remarks he had made at the weekend. During a CNN interview on Sunday, Fauci had suggested that mitigation measures would have been more effective had they...
  • Colorado Republican Sends Defiant Message to Beto After Biden Wants Him to Lead Gun Control Effort

    Source: @RepKenBuck/Screenshot Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) had a simple message for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and failed candidate Beto O'Rourke: If they want to start confiscating AR-15s from law-abiding gun owners, then they can try and take the one that hangs up in his Washington, D.C. office. "I have a message for Joe Biden and Beto OÂ’Rourke, if you want to take everyoneÂ’s AR-15s in America, why donÂ’t you swing by my office in Washington, D.C. and start with this one," Buck said as he took the AR-15 off of the wall. "Come and take it." "I have...
  • When Commonsense Becomes Modernization

    04/20/2019 12:32:57 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 1 replies ^ | April 20, 2019 | Ryan Shucard
    For Congressman Ken Buck (R-CO), and members of a recently established Select Committee, the effort to modernize Congress is serious business. But what passes as “modernization” seems more like good old-fashioned commonsense to Buck, his constituents, and millions more Americans across the country.Seemingly simple things like appointing Members of Congress to committee posts based on their unique backgrounds, professional expertise, and collective experience – instead of the amount of money they raise for their party’s campaign committees – passes muster for modernization these days.In testimony before the Select Committee, Buck said in part that, “Chairmanships and “A” Committees require an even...

    A Republican congressman from Colorado on Monday declared that the Republican Party is “dead,” arguing it “no longer has a vision for a better America.” In an op-ed for The Denver Post, Rep. Ken Buck (R-Colo.) said the party that once had “the blood of the people” coursing “through its veins” is not pursing conservative policies. “After eight years of assuring that unified Republican government would allow for conservative policy, our Republican Congress has accomplished little, except for passing a spending bill that shackles the aspirations of future generations with crippling debt,” Buck wrote.

    I supported the American Health Care Act last Friday because it was the right vote. I didn’t begin as a big fan, but I ended up satisfied that America needed this bill to start a process to repair our healthcare system. Yes, I’m a conservative. I pal around with those liberty-loving Freedom Caucus guys. I get better grades on conservative scorecards than I ever received in college. And frankly, if you asked the Speaker, I think he’d tell you I’m a bit of a right-wing rabble-rouser. I supported the AHCA, and will continue to support it, because a yes vote...

    To keep conservative rebels in check, Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and his allies have been doling out punishments at an aggressive clip in the 114th Congress. From kicking unruly members off the Rules Committee and GOP whip team to stripping a lawmaker of his subcommittee gavel, leadership has been growing more comfortable with taking retaliatory measures to try to enforce party discipline. But several Tea Party targets haven’t gone quietly. They’ve been fighting back with help from Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan’s conservative House Freedom Caucus, which successfully pressured leaders this week to return a subcommittee gavel to one of their...

    Rep. Ted Lieu, in Silicon Valley on Monday and Tuesday to tour tech companies and pay homage to his alma mater, says the key to Democratic victories in 2016 lies on the other side of the aisle. Ted Lieu“We want to see lots of Ted Cruz on television,” Lieu, D-Torrance, said Monday during an interview at a Starbucks in San Jose. “I want him to win the nomination on the Republican side.” Even if that doesn’t happen, having such sharply conservative voices on the other side makes it easier for Democrats to underscore how large segments of the GOP are...

    Updated 6:37 p.m. | Sen. Ted Cruz gathered a group of House conservatives in his office Tuesday night, talking about immigration and House GOP leadership elections slated for after the midterm elections. As CQ Roll Call first reported last October, Cruz held a secret meeting with members at Tortilla Coast during the height of the government shutdown drama. Many of these same Republicans are the agitators who aren’t happy with Speaker John A. Boehner. The Texas Republican gathered roughly 10 members of the GOP Conference at 8 p.m. Tuesday for a 90-minute session that included candy bars, crackers and soda....

    The familiar Washington narrative on the scrum for the U.S. Senate has been rinsed, recycled and delivered once again: Republicans are primed to pick up the six seats necessary to capture control of the upper chamber. The midterm atmosphere sure looks ripe, the polling appears favorable but, as it did in 2010 and 2012, the most competitive batch of races will likely come down to candidate quality. It’s the key component that stifled GOP chances before, and could very well again. .... .... A closer look at the most competitive contests demonstrates why a Senate majority in 2014 is again...
  • Cory Gardner In For Senate, Ken Buck Switches To House Run

    News broke this afternoon of a rumor that Rep. Cory Gardner of Colorado’s 4th Congressional District would not seek reelection for his House seat and would instead enter the U.S. Senate race to challenge Mark Udall in November. We won’t bury the lede on this, this isn’t just a rumor. It’s a fact. Additionally, Ken Buck will exit the Senate race, endorse Gardner, and then run for the 4th Congressional District himself. This is good news all around for a state party that has been woefully incapable of finding a path to victory in big federal races for the last...

    Ken Buck, the presumed front-runner for the GOP Senate nomination in Colorado, is fighting back against the “war on women” narrative that helped doom his Senate campaign in 2010. And the opening salvo in the battle to reclaim his name is coming in the form of a two-minute video entitled, Stephanie’s Story. The story goes like this: In 2008, Stephanie Drobny and her two young children fled their home in Montana after her abusive husband threatened to murder her and put her in the forest “where the bears would eat” her. But Ken Buck, in his capacity as the Weld...

    When establishment Republicans wish to pretend they were wiser than tea party types in 2010, they’ll mention Sharon Angle, Christine O’Donnell, and Ken Buck as examples of “trust them.” They ignore Marco Rubio, who they opposed. They ignore Mike Lee, who they opposed. They ignore Rand Paul, who they opposed. They ignore Pat Toomey, who they opposed even after Arlen Specter jumped to the Democrats. And to include Ken Buck they must have you ignore all the facts. It is true that in 2010, conservatives rallied to Ken Buck and the establishment rallied to Jane Norton. It is true that...

    *snip* Compare this with the House campaign body, the NRCC. After getting clobbered over the NY-23 race and Dede Scozzafava, the NRCC took a hands off approach and let local voters choose their candidates. Not the NRSC. It doubled up around the country igniting a civil war with the grassroots — a civil war that would have never happened but their getting into Florida and doubling down. The NRSC’s argument amounts to telling the world that voters exercising their right to pick their candidates are stupid and Jim DeMint is stupid for siding with the voters. One final thought —...

    Sen. Michael Bennet has narrowly defeated tea party Republican Ken Buck to win a hard-fought Senate seat in Colorado. The victory for Bennet allows Democrats to hold onto a seat once viewed a prime opportunity for the GOP to make gains. Bennet provided a crucial firewall against further Republican gains in the Senate during midterm elections. The race attracted more out-of-state campaign money than any other Senate contest this year. In a victory speech, Bennet called it a "race for the record books."

    For an unknown reason, Michael Bennet decided it would be a good time to call Peter Boyles' show yesterday. Bennet is an appointed Dem U.S. Senator for Colorado filling the vacancy that was left when Ken Salazar joined the Obama admin. Many have commented that he sounded odd, almost high in this strange, short phone call to Boyles. Go Ken Buck!
