    Democratic Virginia state delegate Joseph Morrissey, who reached a plea agreement for charges relating to a sexual relationship he had with his 17-year-old office assistant, is yet to decide whether he will resign or commute to work from jail. The 57-year-old Democratic representative for Henrico county was sentenced to 12 months in jail with 6 months suspended for charges of “contributing to the delinquency of a minor,” according to a report in the Richmond Times-Dispatch. Morrissey’s lawyers say that he will be allowed to continue his work in the general assembly and his private law practice as part of a...

    Friend of Hillary??? McAllen police have released dashcam video from 13th Court Justice of Appeals Nora Longoria’s traffic stop that led to her DWI arrest. The dash cam video shows Longoria performing a field sobriety test. The footage shows she struggled to walk a straight line, and even stumbled several times during the test. According to a police report, she allegedly told him "Please let me go home. I live a couple of miles away” and "You are going to ruin my life. The case went to court November 20th, but the charges were dropped. DA Rene Guerra told Action...

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush (shown), however, appears determined to chart a different course. If he does make a bid for president, this Bush is sending clear signals that it will not be as a conservative. After two previous Bush presidencies, in which conservative positions were adopted sporadically, this should not come as a surprise. But, following the...

    Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane is leaving it to the governor's office to defend a lawsuit challenging a National Rifle Association-backed law that was designed to dismantle illegal municipal firearms ordinances, officials said Friday. A spokesman for Gov. Tom Corbett said the governor's legal office will defend the law against the challenge led by Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Lancaster. Kane's office sent word earlier in the week that she would not take the case. Corbett, a Republican who opposes new forms of gun control, signed the law last month. The law widens the ability of the NRA or gun owners to...

    Am I missing something …? : I think Obama’s executive amnesty is probably unconstitutional, and in any case it’s bad policy. A Congress mindful of its place in our democracy would stop it on balance-of-powers grounds alone. I also share Byron York’s puzzlement over why, exactly, it has to be stopped now, as opposed to after January when Republicans will have majorities in both Houses. What I (and others) also don’t understand, though, is why the Republican House can’t at least try now, by attaching a defunding “rider” to whatever budget bill it decides to pass.

    A California Democrat said a lesson in the wake of the Michael Brown shooting is a need to look at police acting as “jury and executioner” when confronting suspects. Rep. Karen Bass, a House Judiciary Committee member, said in a statement after the grand jury opted to not issue an indictment this week that it “continues a trend of injustice that has rightfully created an environment of anger and concern in Ferguson, Missouri and across the United States.” “Ferguson officials botched this case from the beginning when they left Michael Brown’s body on the street for over four hours after...

Ron Barber filed a federal lawsuit on Monday seeking to stop certification of the 2nd Congressional District race in Arizona as his campaign argued for including ballots that were rejected in the Nov. 4 election.

Barber wants 133 disqualified votes to be counted before the election is certified. The results are headed for an automatic recount that will begin next week, as mandated by state law...

President Obama's determination to take a politically unpopular position so soon after voters elected a Republican dominated Congress stakes out new ground in the battle for control over the government and policy." "It's important that we build upon the President's innovation and transform our nation from the archaic plan of trying to extract policy from a fragmented legislative body, where no one has a mandate for governing,...

Law enforcement sources familiar with the case say Bean will be charged with two counts of sodomy in the third degree, a felony, and sex abuse in the third degree, a misdemeanor. The arrest comes after a six-month investigation that began with allegations Bean secretly made video recordings of men having sex in his bedroom.

    It wasn’t all that long ago that the Democrats were predicting the end of the Republican Party. With the rise of Obama, James Carville began peddling a new book “40 More Years” promising that the Dems would rule for generations. Just this year Carville predicted that the Republican Party would become extinct if it lost to Hillary Clinton. But it was the Democratic Party that was going extinct in Carville’s own backyard. Republicans began winning Senate seats in Louisiana for the first time in a century in just the last ten years. If Landrieu loses, then both of the Louisiana’s...

First, the most egregious claim would be that the unemployment rate has decreased. I think the most important part of this is to lay out how the unemployment rate is calculated, and it will be clear why simply referring to that number (5.8%) and saying everything is okay is so misleading....

The Republican-run House and Democratic Senate now plan to vote to bypass Obama's stubborn opposition to the Keystone XL pipeline -- that would be seen as a stunning, bipartisan rebuke of the president's failed energy policies. Leading the charge for the oil pipeline is the politically embattled Sen. Mary Landrieu, Democrat of Louisiana, who is...

    In politics, there’s nothing harder than realizing that it’s time to go. People who have made their careers as Beltway politicians start to think they’ve become indispensable to Washington, when in fact it’s Washington that has become indispensable to them. And so they can’t or won’t recognize when the moment has come to move on to other things. For Democrats Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, that moment has arrived. With the Democrats’ midterm losses, the two 74-year-olds should announce that when this session of Congress ends, they will relinquish their roles as leaders of their respective Democratic caucuses.

A party committee will conduct a "top-to-bottom assessment" of the Democrats' performance in recent midterm elections and try to determine why they have struggled to turn out its core voters in nonpresidential elections. "It's apparent that there are increasingly two separate electorates: a midterm electorate and a presidential electorate. We win one and we don't seem to be able to win the other,"

They will say absolutely anything to get elected. Cunning, but not bright, they are able campaigners. Reformers underestimate them at their own peril because they are determined to win at all costs.

The incompetence that is finally on display that is the Democrat Party, is just not a surprise to me, but so many people are finally seeing it. They're reacting in ways that we would all hope.

    Following an event during which some African American attendees walked out on a Barack Obama speech intended to galvanize them into voting for Mary Burke, the Wisconsin Reporter claims that a pivotal event from Burke’s career has been falsely described by her during the campaign to cover up an embarrassment. The article also claims that Burke included falsified information related to her job performance on her resume, a resume which she submitted before she was appointed as Wisconsin’s commerce secretary. Burke has claimed that, after two years heading Trek Bicycle’s European operations during which sales figures rose substantially, she was...

    Top Democratic strategists are blasting President Barack Obama for putting the Democratic Party in a precarious position heading into the midterm elections. "It's puzzling--and to the Kay Hagans of the world, infuriating--the number of times President Obama has stepped in it, repeatedly reminding voters that a vote for Hagan is a vote for Obama's policies," Democratic strategist Christy Setzer told The Hill. Another individual whom The Hill describes as a "top Democratic strategist" groused about Obama golfing this past weekend instead of helping Democrats. "He and his team could have made it clear a long time ago that there's nothing...
  • Democrat Woes Mount: Angry Illegal Aliens May Sit out Election!

    The political fortunes of Barack Obama and the Democrat Party continue to decline precipitously, just as important midterm elections which could significantly impact Obama’s final two years in office loom. Oddly enough, Obama has somehow weathered grave scandals involving the IRS, Veterans’ Administration, Fast and Furious, Benghazi, and others worthy of immediate impeachment, only to find himself out of favor with one of his most populous and loyal constituencies—-the illegal alien bunch. How bitterly ironic for Obama and the Democrats that illegal aliens are threatening to NOT vote in November, owing to broken promises and the lack of progress in...

    The “War on Women,” as a political message, has been relatively effective for Democratic candidates even in spite of its intellectual emptiness and its fabricated premises. But the attack on Republicans as hostile to women’s health issues have thus far been largely successful, in no small part due to a credulous and uncurious media which has repeated them uncritically. That has not been the case this cycle. Republicans deserve most of the credit for dismantling this baseless and cynical political attack; the most effective of which has been a stance adopted by candidates like Cory Gardner and Thom Tillis,...

    The Obama administration has been pushing the governors of New York and New Jersey to reverse their decision ordering all medical workers returning from West Africa who had contact with Ebola patients to be quarantined, an administration official said. But on Sunday both governors, Andrew M. Cuomo of New York and Chris Christie of New Jersey, stood by their decision saying that the federal guidelines did not go far enough. At the same time, the first person to be forced into isolation under the new protocols, Kaci Hickox, a nurse returning from Sierra Leone, planned to mount a legal challenge...

    The nurse currently quarantined in New Jersey is an employee for the Centers for Disease Control and a registered Democrat with a history of left-wing advocacy, Gotnews.com has learned. Kaci Hickox’s ties to the CDC were not disclosed in a controversial anti-quarantine column she wrote for the Dallas Morning News. The CDC opposes quarantines or travel bans from Ebola infected countries.
