    Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) on Thursday defended her decision to vote “present” during the House’s impeachment vote, saying she does not believe “in good consciences” she could vote “either yes or no.” “First of all, throughout my life – whether it was through serving in the military and in the different decisions I’ve made in Congress, I always think about what’s in the best interest of the country. People will agree sometimes with those decisions, may disagree with those decisions, but my motivation is always coming from a deep love of country,” she said in an interview with The Hill...

  • Signs grow for Dem wave in House race

    The Hill ^ | 5aug18 | Reid Wilson
    Signs of a blue wave are increasing as lawmakers return to Washington for their final few weeks of legislative work before the crucial midterm elections. Democrats have led Republicans by at least 11 points in five of the last six polls asking voters whether they favor a generic Democrat or a generic Republican in the race for Congress. That margin only slightly trails the Democratic advantage in 2006, when the party won back control of Congress. Democrats also enjoy a fundraising advantage, one that is perhaps bolstered by polls showing their party is more enthusiastic about turning out to vote...

    With their supporters energized in opposition to Donald Trump, Democrats hold their widest advantage in midterm election vote preferences since 2006, when they seized control of both houses of Congress. Rebounding from a tighter contest in the spring, Democratic House candidates now lead their Republican opponents nationally by 52-38 percent among registered voters in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll – a lead that holds up across a range of likely voter models.

    A California Democrat who resigned last year amid sexual misconduct allegations — including that he allegedly masturbated in front of a female lobbyist — has transferred more than $1 million into a lieutenant governor committee account, according to a campaign finance report filed Tuesday. The filing suggests that former state Assemblyman Matt Dababneh, 37, a Democrat who represented Woodland Hills, could be plotting a political comeback, the Sacramento Bee reported. **SNIP** Another woman, Jessica Yas Barker, said in December that she quit her job at a congressman’s office because of Dababneh’s frequent comments about her appearance, including advice that she...

    WASHINGTON Andrea Ramsey, a Democratic candidate for Congress, will drop out of the race after the Kansas City Star asked her about accusations in a 2005 lawsuit that she sexually harassed and retaliated against a male subordinate who said he had rejected her advances. Multiple sources with knowledge of the case told The Star that the man reached a settlement with LabOne, the company where Ramsey was executive vice president of human resources. Court documents show that the man, Gary Funkhouser, and LabOne agreed to dismiss the case permanently after mediation in 2006. Ramsey, a 56-year-old retired business executive from...
  • Wow! MN Dem Lawmaker Admits Obamacare Is Piece of Crap During Town Hall (VIDEO)

    06/27/2017 6:53:47 AM PDT · by davikkm · 6 replies
    Democrat lawmaker and Minnesota gubernatorial candidate Tim Walz (MN-1) went off script during a meeting with constituents this week. The far left Congressman could no longer pretend that “the ACA is doing fine.” Walz may be regretting his vote for Obamacare, admitting it’s “failing his constituents in a lot of ways.” He’s right. Late last year, Minnesota’s insurance regulator said the state’s individual market was on “the brink of collapse” and raised Obamacare rates by 50 to 67% on Minnesotans. That is a disaster.

    Saturday on MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” host Joy Reid disagreed with chairman of the Black Republican Caucus of Florida Sean P. Jackson when he said that if it was not for Republicans, African-Americans would still be enslaved. “Sean, Abraham Lincoln is long dead. Let’s talk about the current Republican nominee,” Reid said. “I think the reason African-Americans have civil rights is because African-Americans fought for them.”

    Sen. Chuck Schumer has reminded us just how important the upcoming presidential election will be in shaping the federal judiciary, calling getting a progressive Supreme Court his “number one goal.” “A progressive majority on the Supreme Court is an imperative, and if I become majority leader, I will make it happen,” Schumer, D-N.Y., said to attendees at a conference last week hosted by the Rev. Al Sharpton. These statements should concern individuals with a proper understanding of the limited role of the judiciary. The next president will appoint at least one justice to the Supreme Court and could fill one-third...

    A conservative legal group is accusing state Democratic officials of conspiring to flout public records laws in order to keep secret details of a campaign to bring racketeering charges against climate policy dissenters. Democratic attorneys general led by New York’s Eric Schneiderman are seeking to block efforts to obtain documents about their efforts by invoking an overbroad claim to secrecy in ongoing legal proceedings, according to the Energy and Environment (E&E) Legal Institute. “These activist AGs are trying to write themselves out from freedom of information laws their legislatures have written them into,” E&E senior legal fellow Chris Horner said...

    The FBI has recovered personal and work-related e-mails from the private computer server used by Hillary Clinton during her time as secretary of state, according to a person familiar with the investigation. The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s success at salvaging personal e-mails that Clinton said had been deleted raises the possibility that the Democratic presidential candidate’s correspondence eventually could become public. The disclosure of such e-mails would likely fan the controversy over Clinton’s use of a private e-mail system for official business.

    During a July 9 discussion on a spending bill, Democrat members of the House—led by House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)—began pushing a vote to ban all "Confederate symbols from the Capitol." This was a continuation of a push that began Tuesday, wherein Democrats sought to ban Confederate flags from all federal cemeteries. On Thursday, Pelosi supported such bans as necessary, saying it "is about our morals." According to Politico, on Tuesday, Democrats not only pushed to ban the flag from federal cemeteries, but also “to stop the U.S. Park Service from doing business with enterprises that sell the...

    I am starting a petition today to ban the Democratic Party! The Dem. party was the party of slavery and resisted the civil rights movement! Every day that that the "party of slavery" and "Anti-Civil Rights" party exists is a painful reminder of decades of division, terror, injustice, and institutional racism that were forced on the United States of America. This party judged men and women based on the color of their skin and not the content of their character. Evil wins (#EvilWins) as long as this political party functions. Additionally, the democratic party logo, the donkey, is painful reminder...

    Yes, it was another dismal holiday in the Windy City, with gang violence running wild. 47 wounded and nine dead, including a seven year old boy whose father – a multiple conviction criminal with recent illegal gun charges – was probably the actual target. Sure, those numbers sound like bad news, (and they are) but the actual title of the Washington Post article covering the story includes the caveat… but better than last year.
