    Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker came to the aid of Sen. Ted Cruz Friday after reports that Speaker of the House John Boehner called him a "jackass" during a fundraiser. Appearing on "The Hugh Hewitt Show," the Republican presidential hopeful called Boehner's reported Wednesday night statement "just wrong." Boehner made the comments at a Steamboat Springs event for GOP Rep. Scott Tipton, according to the Daily Caller. "I think it's just wrong," Walker said. "Even though I don't know Sen. Cruz as well as I know some of the governors, I've grown to know him and like him and admire him...

    Republican legislators have gotten their messaging instructions from their top leaders: Tout unpopular free-trade measures during the August recess, ignore popular curbs on the migration that saps Americans’ wages. Breitbart News has exclusively obtained an internal August recess messaging instruction set for Republican legislators produced by Sen. John Thune (R-SD) 52% , who orchestrates the GOP Senators’ PR pitch. This 20-page messaging instruction manual seems to confirm prior reports by Breitbart News that Republican Congressional leadership has no plans to enact popular immigration reforms to curb large-scale migration. Each August, Senators and Congressmen return home to listen to constituents’ concerns...

    Juicy, but I don’t know how scandalized we should be at learning that Boehner holds a view we all assumed he held in the first place. Next we’ll find out that Mitch McConnell thinks Cruz is a jackass too. This isn’t the first time he’s been accused of saying something privately to fundraisers that he wouldn’t dare dream of saying publicly. Remember when he allegedly told a bunch of donor-class amnesty fans that he was “hellbent” on passing comprehensive immigration reform in 2014? Two months later Dave Brat upset Eric Cantor in their House primary by running hard against illegal...

    An explosive confrontation brewing between the House Republican leadership and conservatives over Planned Parenthood is threatening to shut down the government for the second time in three years. And House GOP leaders have yet to settle on a strategy to avert it. Desperate to avoid another closure, Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and his team would prefer to build bipartisan opposition to funding the group through a series of high-profile Congressional investigations. But, at this point, that seems unlikely to cut it with a bloc of House conservatives who have said they simply won’t vote for a large-scale spending plan that...

Ivancic led the negotiations for Boehner on the repeal of Medicare’s Sustainable Growth Rate this year.

    Rank-and-file GOP House members are now confronted with an important question: do they want to head into a presidential election with a leader who is unpopular with their own voters and hated by Independents? Gallup released a poll today showing that just 23% of Americans view Speaker John Boehner favorably. A clear majority have an unfavorable view of him. What is more revealing is that Boehner is under water in terms of approval with his own party. Just 37% of Republicans have a favorable view of the Speaker, while 42% view him unfavorably. His numbers are atrocious among Independents –...

    A bill that would make the nonconsensual distribution of intimate photos a federal crime finally is ready for introduction. The legislation seeks to ban “revenge porn,” which an increasing number of states punish with criminal penalties, but against which there’s no federal law, complicating efforts to remove the often humiliating content and penalize distributors. Revenge porn generally is posted online by jilted lovers or hackers. In many cases, victims share the material with someone they trust, then rue the decision when it appears online without their permission, sometimes accompanied by their name, workplace and contact information. The effort to criminalize...

    Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew told Congress on Wednesday that he will extend for another three months the authority he is using to take emergency measures to keep from breaching the nation’s borrowing limit. In a letter to congressional leaders, Lew said he will extend the current debt-suspension period, which was set to expire Friday, through Oct. 30. He said he believes the emergency measures he is using may be sufficient to keep the government operating for a brief period after Oct. 30. Since March 16, Lew has been employing a variety of bookkeeping maneuvers such as removing investments from government...

    In a rare and fiery weekend session, the Senate voted on Sunday to resurrect the federal Export-Import Bank, handing the Republican Party’s most conservative wing a major defeat and setting up a showdown this week with House leaders divided over the moribund export credit agency. The bipartisan vote — 67 to 26 — broke a filibuster and allowed supporters to attach a measure to reauthorize the Export-Import Bank to a three-year highway and infrastructure bill, which is expected to pass the Senate early this week. The agency’s authorization expired June 30, halting all new loan guarantees and other assistance to...

    Sanders’ full remarks, reprinted below and are worth reading, but in addition to global warming he said he and the pope agree that “casino-type capitalism” and income inequality are a scourge on society, that senior citizens are too often abandoned and alone, and that young people are losing hope because they have few concrete prospects for a full life.

    Following the unveiling of a second video exposing a to Planned Parenthood doctor negotiating and arranging the sale of body parts from babies killed in abortions, Speaker John Boehner demanded that President Barack Obama denounce its activities. The first video shows Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, describing how Planned Parenthood sells the body parts of aborted unborn children and admitting she uses partial-birth abortions to supply intact body parts. In the second video, Mary Gatter, the Medical director at Planned Parenthood Pasadena and San Gabriel Valley in Calfiornia, discusses selling aborted baby...

    House Speaker John Boehner ordered that flags at the U.S. Capitol be flown at half-mast Tuesday to honor the victims of last week's tragic shooting spree in Chattanooga, Tenn. "The flags @USCapitol stand at half-staff today in honor of the brace service members we lost in #Chattanooga," the Ohio Republican posted to Twitter, along with a photo of the U.S. Capitol. Congressional leaders as well as the White House have faced growing criticism for not flying flags at the two buildings to acknowledge the four Marines and one Navy sailor who died last week after a Kuwaiti-born gunman attacked two...

    Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) is putting the blame for Congress's failure to move immigration reform squarely on the shoulders of President Obama. The House Speaker said he's been pushing immigration reform since he took the gavel four years ago, but the president has "poisoned the well" with his executive actions on the issue. "He's stirred up the American people in such a way that it would almost be impossible to do immigration reform, given the environment that we're dealing with," Boehner said on CBS's "Face the Nation" program, which aired Sunday morning. "I want to do immigration reform and the...

  • Democrats face narrow path to retake Senate in 2016

    Democrats can take back the Senate in 2016 after a stinging, nine-seat defeat last year — but their path is narrow, and any gains could be fleeting. The party needs to capture four or five seats — depending on the results of the presidential election — next November. While the 2016 map is favorable, flipping control of the Senate would require winning most of the toss-up races and defeating several well-funded GOP incumbents in pricey swing states that will also be crucial in the race for the White House.

    The speaker of the US House of Representatives, John Boehner, has told a Dublin audience of his determination to overcome Republican resistance to immigration reform. Mr. Boehner also told how Taoiseach Enda Kenny has harangued him on the matter, telling him how the lack of reform has left some Irish immigrants listening to a parent’s funeral by phone. His remarks indicate he may yet move to confront opponents of reform within his own Republican party, which is in the vanguard of resistance to it and has a majority in the House. […] Imitating Mr. Kenny, Mr. Boehner said he was...

    Sen. Ted Cruz now has five fellow Texan members of Congress publicly backing his 2016 presidential run. Cruz’s campaign announced Thursday morning the endorsement of Rep. Brian Babin, R-Woodville. “Ted has shown the conservative leadership and fortitude we so desperately need in our nation’s highest office,” said Babin in a statement released by the Cruz campaign. ”Now is a time for truth,” echoing the title of the senator’s new book, “and he will speak honestly to the American people.” Like Cruz, Babin has been critical of Republican leadership and President Barack Obama’s executive actions on immigration. Babin voted “present” in...

    Are key Republican leaders in D.C. from the Senate, House and Supreme Court being blackmailed? Tell me you haven’t thought the exact same thing? Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in DC. Rotten like a dead fish left at the front door of a Congressmen’s office by the Obama Crime Family. Rotten like a photo of a Supreme Court Justice with his robe down at his ankles. Because what’s happening just isn’t normal. Please tell me how it’s possible that President Obama and his socialist cabal suffered the most massive and historic defeat in modern political history only 9...
