    LAST NIGHT, PRESIDENT TRUMP MADE THE FOLLOWING REQUEST: "To every citizen, call Congress, and tell them to finally, after all of these decades, secure our border." U.S. Capitol Switchboard (202) 224-3121 A switchboard operator will connect you directly with the Senate office you request. Oh, Congress is going to be upset with you, when they get calls all day ... same number connects you to House members!

    Young abided by letter of law; spirit of law takes a beating The House Ethics Committee has ruled that Alaska Rep. Don Young didn't violate the law in accepting 12 checks totaling $60,000 for his legal defense fund from 12 businesses owned by one family. As the committee pointed out, the companies are technically 12 separate entities in Louisiana, but they represent exactly one political interest.

    Michaud Calls for Bipartisan Seating at State of the Union Address - Says it's a small, but important and symbolic step WASHINGTON, DC - Today Congressman Mike Michaud added his name to a letter led by Senator Mark Udall (D-CO) that will be sent to House and Senate leaders next week asking for a show of bipartisanship through a change in the seating at the upcoming State of the Union Address. "Partisan seating arrangements at the State of the Union addresses serve to symbolize division instead of the common challenges we face in securing a strong future for the United...
  • Senate Votes $4.6 Billion for Indian, Black Farmer Settlements

    The U.S. Senate yesterday approved spending $4.6 billion to settle two lawsuits: one by black farmers who alleged racial discrimination by government lenders and the other by 300,000 American Indians who said they had been cheated out of land royalties dating to 1887. Passage of the measure, by voice vote, unblocks a legislative logjam that has thwarted payouts, negotiated by the Obama administration, of $1.15 billion to the black farmers and $3.4 billion to the American Indians.

    The link has only a video posted. "I mean, the Supreme Court has done a tremendous disservice to the United States of America. They have done more to undermine our democracy with their Citizens United decision than all of the Republican operatives in the world in this campaign. They've opened the floodgates, and personally, I'm investigating articles of impeachment against Justice Roberts for perjuring during his Senate hearings, where he said he wouldn't be a judicial activist, and he wouldn't overturn precedents." ~ Rep. Peter DeFazio in an interview with The Huffington Post

    Subject: So Dumb You Can Only Smile A DC airport ticket agency offers some examples of 'why' our country is in trouble! 1.I had a New Hampshire Congresswoman (Carol Shea-Porter) ask for an aisle seat so that her hair wouldn't get messed up by being near the window. (On an airplane!) 2.I got a call from a Kansas Congressman's (Moore) staffer (Howard Bauleke), who wanted to go to Capetown. I started to explain the length of the flight and the passport information, and then he interrupted me with, ''I'm not trying to make you look stupid, but Capetown is in...

    Ohio Congresswoman Mary Jo Kilroy (D-umbass) claims to voted against TARP, but wasn't in Congress at the time (and supported it during her campaign) There is apparently a whole new level of human stupidity that can be achieved once someone gets elected to public office. Take for example this claim made by Democrat Mary Jo Kilroy earlier this week where she claims that she voted against TARP because it didn't have enough consumer protections. One problem, however. She wasn't even in Congress at the time. She was running for Congress in September 2008, and at that time she said she...
  • Heritage Foundation: Obamacare Slaughter Rule is without Precedent

    Heritage Foundation ^ | 03/16/2010 | Brian Darling
    Yesterday, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) endorsed the rumored Slaughter Rule to send the Senate passed Obamacare bill to the President without a direct up-or-down vote in the House. Don’t believe those on the left who are trying to argue that because Republicans used deeming resolutions when they were in power, it is ok for Democrats to use a similar tactic to pass legislation without a vote. Under this procedure, the House would vote on a rule setting up debate. The House would then skip a vote on the Senate passed version of Obamacare and move directly to...

    The Australian ^ | 03/06/2010 | Brad Norrington
    There are signs that Barack Obama's fledgling administration has hit a dead end. A growing idea has taken hold of the political intelligentsia in Washington as Barack Obama's young presidency has sunken into paralysis, only a year after he entered the White House. On Obama's side, the frustration is palpable. His supporters argue that modern America is ungovernable because the political system has become so unwieldy it is broken. How else, they ask, can it be explained that a president who won 53 per cent of the popular vote and helped to win big majorities for his Democratic Party in...
  • The Constitution: There's Nothing It Can't Do!

    12/01/2009 11:56:53 AM PST · by BuckeyeTexan · 24 replies · 1,008+ views
    From Nancy Pelosi's website: MYTH:"Health insurance reform could be unconstitutional…or violate the 10th amendment." FACT: As with Medicare and Medicaid, the federal government has the Constitutional power to reform our health care system. The 10th amendment to the U.S. Constitution states that the powers not delegated to the federal government by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states … or to the people. But the Constitution gives Congress broad power to regulate activities that have an effect on interstate commerce. Congress has used this authority to regulate many aspects of American life, from...

    While roaming the grounds of the US Capitol yesterday, Kristinn Taylor obtained a list of possible democrat defectors of the now infamous “Healthcare” bill. Kristinn was asked to post this list of wobbly democrats on FreeRepublic in an effort to mobilize our forces and overwhelm these members with phone calls and e-mails asking them to vote NO on the socialization of our healthcare. We also learned that Nancy Pelosi had just scheduled the vote for tomorrow; Saturday, November 7, 2009 at 6:00 PM. For all those who were unable to answer the call to surround the Capitol yesterday, here is...

    NRO ^ | 07/13/2009 | Charles Krauthammer
    Krauthammer's take from last night's All-Stars Panel on Special Report with Bret Baier: On Eric Holder possibly appointing a prosecutor to investigate Bush-era interrogation techniques: If he does this, it is a terrible mistake. What we heard today, that [the special prosecutor] will only be for rogue interrogators who went outside the law—presumably, you know, [for] sadists who wanted to have a good time out of the rubric of interrogation. I'm not sure there are a lot of those. What will happen is once you appoint a prosecutor, as we know from past history, he's out of control. There are...

    Greg Pollowitz points me to this report from the Anchorage Daily News, that the judge in the failed corruption prosecution of former Sen. Ted Stevens is still fuming at the Justice Department. The paper reports that Judge Emmet Sullivan, "on his own, without a request by either party" issued a pair of orders over the weekend, "indicating he may not be ready to give up jurisdiction of the case even as the government is asking for all charges to be dismissed." The report elaborates that the judge directed federal prosecutors to provide him copies of everything they had gathered in...
