  • Freedom Caucus drives dagger into heart of young Trump Presidency

    FOXNEWS Opinion Section: Elizabeth Peek ^ | March 24, 2017 | Elizabeth Peek
    It is hard to overestimate the damage the Freedom Caucus has done to the fledgling presidency of Donald Trump, and to the country. By blocking the American Health Care Act of 2017, the conservative group has guaranteed that Americans will struggle forward under the burden of Obamacare. In the next few months insurers will announce their premium hikes for the coming year; chances are, given the continuing withdrawal of major companies from the marketplaces and the ongoing failure of the bill to attract enough young and healthy participants, the new rates will not be pretty. Last year premiums went up...
  • Freedom Caucus Chair Meadows: Replacement Sets ‘New Entitlement, Keeps Some Taxes...

    On Monday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” House Freedom Caucus Chairman Representative Mark Meadows (R-NC) stated that the GOP’s Obamacare replacement “sets a new entitlement, keeps some taxes, doesn’t repeal all of Obamacare.” Meadows said that some progress has been made on the bill, and “I’d be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge the fact that some of the taxes that were in the initial version have been eliminated, and so, we can applaud that.” He added that “we don’t really get rid of the Cadillac tax altogether. It’s still in there, it just comes back in in eight...

    Canada Free Press ^ | 12/20/16 | Douglas V. Gibbs
    In addition to pushing a pro-gun, pro-Second Amendment agenda From an originalist view of the United States Constitution, every federal gun law is unconstitutional. If there needs to be protections like background checks and laws asserting any regulations, that must happen at the State level. That is not to say the States have the authority to betray our right to keep and bear arms. Our right to our guns is an inherent right, a natural right that belongs to us no matter what. However, we must also remember that regarding our rights, while it is a no-no for the federal...

    To pick and choose which laws to follow, or to ignore the Constitutional authorities given to the federal government and to refuse to protect this nation against invasion is, in a word, irresponsible - and in some circles may be considered treasonous On the website of Norma Torres, a Democrat member of the United States Congress from Southern California, is an article bragging about the Congressional Central America Caucus meeting with Juan Orlando Hernandez, the President of Honduras. The purpose of the meeting is to followup regarding a letter signed by 77 other Members of Congress calling on President Obama...

    Chick-Fil-A sandwiches abound at the Democratic National Convention, and some of the delegates aren’t happy about it. Conference attendees can buy Chick-Fil-A sandwiches both inside and outside the convention arena. Joe Sacco, a Democratic delegate from Nevada who supports Senator Bernie Sanders and attended the LGBT caucus, told The Daily Caller News Foundation he’s unhappy Chick-Fil-A is being served.
  • Former D.C. Congressman Fauntroy arrested, jailed on return to U.S. from Dubai

    Former D.C. Congressman Walter Fauntroy, 83, is back in the U.S. after several years absence and, according to his attorney, he is in jail in Loudoun County, Va. Attorney Johnny Barnes said Fauntroy was arrested at Dulles Airport in Loudoun County Monday morning on his return from Dubai on an "unexpected" warrant from Prince George's County, Md. It involved Fauntroy's failure to appear in a court case in 2011 on allegations of fraud involving a 2009 Obama inauguration party that never took place.

  • Presidential primary proposal clears 1st hurdle in Colorado legislature

    KRDO.com Channel 13 ^ | April 25,2016
    A plan to return Colorado to a presidential preference primary has cleared its first hurdle at the state Legislature. A House committee voted 5-4 Monday to set up a primary vote for 2020. Unaffiliated voters could choose to vote in a party's primary as long as they indicate a preference, which would then be scrubbed after the vote. That falls short of a truly open primary, in which voters could cast ballots in whichever party they choose, without indicating a party preference. Colorado has more unaffiliated voters than voters registered with either party. Legislative analysts have said a primary vote...

    The Complete Colorado ^ | April 27, 2016 10:29 AM | Peter Blake
    Future presidential primaries in June? It’s possible that the Colorado legislature will re-establish the presidential primary that lasted for three elections (1992, 1996, 2000) but it won’t be in the form that the House State Affairs Committee approved on Monday. House Bill 1454 escaped committee on a party-line vote, with the Democratic majority on top. Presuming passage by the Appropriations Committee Thursday morning, it is likely to be debated on the House floor Thursday afternoon.

  • Hickenlooper: Switch To Primaries Would Be A 'Worthy Expense' [Colorado]

    Colorado Public Radio ^ | April 20, 2016 | Rachel Estabrook
    Colorado would go back to holding a presidential primary under a bill that's expected to be introduced this week, after Democrat and Republican voters complained that caucuses, held in March, left them out of the nominating process. The idea has Gov. John Hickenlooper's support, even though it might mean the state picks up the cost.

    Wyoming County is picturesque rolling hills country dotted with apple orchards and maple groves located in the western part of the state. Both the state of Wyoming and Wyoming County are predominantly white 92% with similar per capita income. Where they differ significantly is in their ability to vote within a Republican Primary Election. Although the State of Wyoming has a population 10 times the size of Wyoming County, only a fraction of a percentage of Wyoming republicans are chosen to vote for the delegates that pick the presidential nominee. Wyoming County, NY had a 40% voter turnout in 2016....
