    April 23, 2013 New Congressional Quest: End Prison Phone Call Price Gouging Bridget Johnson The Congressional Black Caucus Working Group on Prison Telecomm Reform is protesting high call costs for phone-homers behind bars. The CBC group will hold a press conference with former inmates and family members “to expose the often exorbitant rates that prisoners and their families are being charged for telephone calls and to announce the CBC response to the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to resolve the issue after more than a decade of delay,” according to D.C.

    The House of Representatives passed a bi-partisan resolution Tuesday night reaffirming “In God We Trust” as the official motto of the United States. The 396-9 vote came at the request of Rep. Randy Forbes (R-VA) – in part over President Obama’s refusal to correct remarks he made that misstated the motto as “E pluribus unum” instead of “In God We Trust.”Lawmakers voting against “In God We Trust” include Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), Rep. Gary Ackerman (D-NY), Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich), Rep. Judy Chu (D-CA), Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO), Rep. Mike Honda (D-CA), Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA), Rep.

    Here’s something I bet you didn’t know: Every dime the U.S. Government doesn’t take from you, every penny it lets you keep by its good graces, let’s face it, your whole paycheck has to be borrowed from China. While the whole mainstream media’s insistence on calling keeping the tax rates the same is a “tax cut,” implies that all your money really belongs to the government, Keith Olbermann and an obscure Democrat Congressman, Bobby Scott, just came out and expressed that totalitarian view last night in a segment curiously entitled, “America’s Secret Debt.” ( Secret?) In fact, Scott objects...

    Fellow Citizens of the 3rd Congressional District of Virginia, My name is James Quigley and I am officially announcing my campaign for Congress as a Libertarian against the incumbent, Bobby Scott (Democrat), of the 3rd District of Virginia. Over the course of the last few years our country has become less of a Free Market Democratic Republic and more akin to a Corporatist Oligarchy while the wealth of the poor and middle classes have been transferred to the few and powerful. Although Mr. Scott has spoken publicly against such interests, his actions and legislation has done little to stop this...

    Congressional Quarterly ^ | 11/19/08 | Aliya Sternstein
    John Boyd, president of the National Black Farmers Association, is among those being vetted for Agriculture secretary in the Obama Cabinet, an individual with knowledge of the transition process said Thursday. Congressional Black Caucus members are backing Boyd in an attempt to reverse the department’s track record on civil rights, which government investigators and outside watchdogs have described as abysmal, aides said. The fourth-generation farmer and civil rights activist would be a surprise choice given the leadership pedigrees of other possible nominees, such as former Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack. But the pick would help fulfill President-elect Barack Obama ’s pledge...

Representative JoAnn Davis (R-VA), the resolution's sponsor, said the resolution was necessary to counter "political correctness run amok." "No one," she said, "should feel like they have done something wrong by wishing someone a Merry Christmas." Twenty-two Democrats played Scrooge...

    MILWAUKEE -- Civil rights advocates on Sunday called the blurring lines between religion and politics a threat to equal opportunity, and said conservative judges and lawmakers are threatening progressives' gains nationwide. "You have three branches of government that seem to have an orchestrated approach to, in effect, chisel away at civil rights protections. It's systematic," said Hilary Shelton, director of the Washington, D.C., branch of the NAACP, speaking at the group's annual convention. The 96th annual gathering of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People comes as the Baltimore-based nonprofit has been struggling to raise money. Its new...

Sears, a black, a female, and a US Marine veteran was featured in the mailer with President Bush and Adolf Hitler. Winsome Sears' opponent, Democrat Robert (Bobby) Scott claimed he did not know of the mailers and his staff said they had contacted the FBI. Winsome Sears is the "dream" trifecta - black, female and a veteran yet she has not received endorsement from...

    I made it to the debate last night, although I couldn’t stay for the entire affair. I was surprised to see the turnout. It was standing room only. Another surprise was the number of young people. I was not surprised by the large number of Scott campaign workers. He’s been in power for a long time. Scott opened with a typical mindless democratic party script. He’s for better health care, decries the debt, blah, blah. He even came with charts – one of which showed what our National debt would be in 2040 if spending remains as is! He projected...

    WASHINGTON -- Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean holds a commanding lead in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination in Virginia, a new statewide poll found. The Mason-Dixon poll, conducted last week for the Daily Press and other media, confirmed that the race for the Democratic nomination is still up for grabs in the final two months before the state's Feb. 10 primary. In fact, more Democratic voters were undecided - 28 percent - than were committed to any of the nine presidential candidates. But among those who expressed a preference, Dean was their top pick. The Vermont doctor, who...
