    CONSERVATIVE TREEHOUSE ^ | 7/31/2020 | SUNDANCE
    Never attribute malice to that which can be explained by the bureaucracy of the system; perhaps that is the biggest lesson learned from my recent travels and briefings. As incredible as it might sound, those who run government investigations do not necessarily have their arms around the specifics, or the bigger picture. It is quite amazing to talk to people who have been in the proverbial weeds for years only to realize the rag-tag-misfits have more comprehensive information system than multi-million government enterprises. So too should this message serve as a warning. Again, as incredulous as it sounds, do not...

    Border Report ^ | 1 April 2020 | Sandra Sanchez
    The South Texas border city of Laredo has ordered all residents to wear some sort of face mask or face cover in public buildings and while pumping gas starting Thursday. The new restrictions come at a time when the city deals with a spike in cases, which now stands at 53 cases, and three deaths linked to COVID-19 — the most in South Texas. During an emergency meeting on Tuesday night, the Laredo City Council voted to require that face masks that cover the nose and mouth be worn when entering a public building, pumping gas, riding in public transportation...

    During the debate on the $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus bill, one of the most consequential pieces of legislation in contemporary history, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) did something appalling. With the agreement of both Republicans and Democrats in House leadership, the Speaker blocked a recorded vote on the bill. It is an old leadership trick to protect members from controversial votes by not forcing them to take a position. In retrospect, this is going to be one of the most important votes the sitting members of Congress will ever take, yet they came up with excuses not to...

    Seven Democratic candidates for president will meet on the debate stage in Charleston, South Carolina, in a debate hosted by CBS News. It's the last time the candidates will face off before Saturday's critical South Carolina primary — and the last one before voters in 16 states and territories go to the polls on Super Tuesday, March 3. "CBS Evening News" anchor and managing editor Norah O'Donnell and "CBS This Morning" co-host Gayle King will moderate the debate, joined in questioning by "Face the Nation" moderator and senior foreign affairs correspondent Margaret Brennan, chief Washington correspondent Major Garrett and "60...

    The White House violated the law by temporarily withholding U.S. military aid to Ukraine, said a Government Accountability Office report published on Thursday. “In the summer of 2019, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) withheld from obligation funds appropriated to the Department of Defense (DOD) for security assistance to Ukraine,” the eight-page watchdog report read. “Faithful execution of the law does not permit the President to substitute his own policy priorities for those that Congress has enacted into law. OMB withheld funds for a policy reason, which is not permitted under the Impoundment Control Act (ICA). The withholding was...

    Breitbart ^ | 10/29/19 | Penny Starr
    An Inspector General report for the Social Security Administration flew under the radar when it was issued in August, and the administration refused to answer Breitbart News’s inquiry about the findings that reveal $11.6 million in payments were paid to dead people in Puerto Rico. The findings of the report stated: SSA issued approximately $11.6 million in payments after death to 149 beneficiaries and 4 representative payees who died in Puerto Rico from January 1992 through December 2016. Identifying and correcting these discrepancies will prevent approximately $1.4 million in additional improper payments after death over the next 12 months. We...

    Full header: Dems explicitly vote to condemn 'religious liberty' Claim faithful have used beliefs 'to threaten civil rights' Democrats, who who famously booed the mention of God in their party platform, now have condemned "religious liberty" and praised the religiously "unaffiliated." The Washington Examiner reported the Democratic National Committee approved a resolution "taking aim at religious liberty." At a summer meeting in San Francisco, the DNC adopted a resolution concerning the "nonreligious." It explains that the the "Religiously Unaffiliated Demographic has tripled in the last two decades, now representing 25 percent of the overall American population and 35 percent of...

    Former special counsel Robert Mueller condemned President Donald Trump's tweets touting WikiLeaks' stolen emails during the 2016 campaign, in what were his sharpest comments criticizing the President's conduct. "Problematic is an understatement in terms of what it displays in terms of giving some hope or some boost to what is and should be illegal activity," Mueller said after Rep. Mike Quigley, an Illinois Democrat, read Trump's tweets aloud during the House Intelligence Committee hearing, the second of two high-profile public hearings Wednesday. Mueller also called Donald Trump Jr.'s Twitter messages exchanged with WikiLeaks "disturbing" and said they were subject to...

    Tropical storm Barry has finally earned its name. The storm is drifting W in the central Gulf of Mexico. The tropical system is somewhat unusual because the low pressure system was originally over Georgia before drifting into the GOM. The New Orleans area has been inundated with heavy rain with flooding over the past several days, unrelated to the current tropical storm.

    The Washington Times ^ | June 4, 2019 | Stephen Dinan
    With chants of “Yes we can” raining from the rafters, House Democrats on Tuesday powered through legislation to cancel deportations and grant future citizenship rights to millions of people, in a vote that nodded more toward 2020 politics than to substantive policymaking. The 237-187 vote was momentous, marking the first major legalization to pass the House in nearly a decade, and underscoring the ground Democrats feel they have gained on an issue both sides expect to be at the center of the presidential election. With President Trump calling for action to solve crisis at the border, Democrats countered by casting...

    President Donald Trump has signed off on a new immigration plan being spearheaded by senior adviser and presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner that appeared to receive a positive reception from Republican senators briefed on it Tuesday. A senior administration official told reporters after the meeting that the president had approved the effort to overhaul America's immigration system and increase border security last week and that it should now be considered "the President Trump plan." Kushner is working to finalize a plan with two major components: Border security measures that would include efforts to secure ports of entry and a package of...

    Attorney General William P. Barr is expected to release special counsel Robert Mueller’s report to Congress and the public on Thursday morning, a Justice Department official said Monday. The nearly 400-page report is the most anticipated political report in the last 20 years as both Republicans and Democrats scramble to defend or attack President Trump in the wake of its release. Mr. Barr summarized the special counsel’s findings last month in a four-page letter to Congress. He wrote Mr. Mueller concluded there wasn’t evidence to indicate Mr. Trump or members of his campaign conspired with Russia to win the White...

    House Speaker Kirk Cox, R-Colonial Heights, said in a statement that Democratic leader Eileen Filler-Corn, D-Fairfax, has repeatedly spurned offers by House Courts Committee Chairman Rob Bell, R-Albemarle, to hold a bipartisan hearing that would allow the two women to testify. “There should be no mistake about what has happened here: the alleged victims are seeking a bipartisan hearing; Republicans are seeking a bipartisan hearing; Democrats in the House of Delegates are refusing to allow that to happen,” Cox said.

    House Democrats voted Friday to defend localities that allow illegal immigrants to vote in their elections, turning back a GOP attempt to discourage the practice. The vote marks a stunning reversal from just six months ago, when the chamber — then under GOP control — voted to decry illegal immigrant voting. “We are prepared to open up the political process and let all of the people come in,” Rep. John Lewis, a Georgia Democrat and hero of the civil rights movement, told colleagues as he led opposition to the GOP measure. The 228-197 vote came as part of a broader...
