  • Pennsylvania GOP Slams Secretary of State for Releasing Contact Info of Electors

    PJ Media ^ | 12/5/16 | Rick Moran
    Pennsylvania Republicans are livid with the secretary of state´s office for releasing not only the names of the state´s electors, but also their home addresses and phone numbers. The GOP is calling the move "unprecedented." Going by recent history, it certainly is. Previously, the secretary of state´s office would release the names and home counties of electors. Now all of a sudden, Democratic Secretary of State Pedro A. Cortés discovered a way to release the personal contact information of electors, despite the fact the state had never done so previously. Cortés´s office claims they were just following the law on

    Sheriff Paul Babeu can barely contain his enthusiasm for what lies ahead after January 20th. It’s a time when he and other law enforcement professionals, both local and at the federal level, finally get to return to doing the job the people pay them to do. It’s the wondrous time when the obstructionist scofflaws currently occupying and abusing positions will be kicked to the curb. Rick Wells reported: They play a couple of quotes from President-elect Trump during his thank you tour stop in Cincinnati. In one he pledges to restore our sovereignty, a huge commitment that is diametrically opposed...

    During a shouting matching Thursday night between top aides of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, the President-elect’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway summed up a key reason for why my Democratic Party lost – and will likely continue to lose. “There’s a difference for voters between what offends you and what affects you.” To understand what she meant, look to the recent developments in Indiana.

    Sen. John Barrasso, a Wyoming physician, gave an outline of the plan on the Senate floor this week, which he said has a goal of doing “no harm.” "I want to make a couple of things clear. First of all, nobody is talking about taking people off of insurance without a replacement plan in place. We all understand that there needs to be a transition over time," Barrasso said. "People have already been hurt too much when they lost their insurance and when their rates went up because of Obamacare and the mandates, and the government saying they know better...

    President-elect Donald Trump ran on a platform of being extremely tough on immigration. One of his vows to voters was that he’d get rid of President Barack Obama’s executive actions, which could include those that provided protections to young undocumented immigrants from being deported. One Republican lawmaker and Trump critic is now prepping legislation that would keep those protections in place in case Trump moves forward with his pledge. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has said he is working with both Democrats and Republicans in order to protect immigrants, known as Dreamers, who willingly came forward to give their information in...

    We should probably think of this as an exercise in managing our expectations heading into next year’s congressional battles. Two days after the election I posed a question to the Republican Party leadership: we’ve given you control of the entire federal government. Now what will you do with it? The answer will largely depend on what happens in the Senate. Trump can, if he wishes, undo many of Obama’s executive actions with the stroke of a pen and Republicans will largely control what bills come up for a vote in both the House and Senate. But activity in the...

Jeb Bush urged Republicans to pursue "21st-century solutions" to issues Americans face and govern inclusively if they wish to improve the GOP's brand and build on recent party victories under the next administration. "Our party must be big-hearted and creative and opportunistic," the ex-White House hopeful, who was President-elect Trump's greatest rival for much of the GOP primary, wrote in a Friday op-ed for the Wall Street Journal. Bush declined to support Trump in the general election, often criticizing his lack of policy knowledge and foreign policy plans, though he now admits the incoming Republican president "successfully...

    As Democrats strategize on how to stop conservative legislation from making its way to Donald Trump’s desk in the White House, Republicans have a little-known rule in their toolbox that would allow them to pass legislation, including a repeal of Obamacare, with a simple majority. Democrats were able to keep 48 seats in the Senate after Tuesday’s election, giving the party the power to filibuster legislation and effectively prevent conservative policies from being enacted. But Republicans can turn to a seldom-used Senate rule that would allow them to pass legislation by a simple majority vote—legislation that has a greater chance...

    Although the idea of the electors trying to reverse the vote is occasionally discussed — such as after the incredibly close 2000 election in which George Bush narrowly beat Al Gore — going “faithless” is exceedingly rare.

According to the New York Times, with eight days until official Election Day, over 22 million people had already voted early. Some estimate that...

    Republicans Rode Waves of Populism Until They Crashed the Party Oct. 26, 2016 10:32 a.m. ET Donald Trump seized on GOP’s failure to change enough to accommodate four decades of newcomers; a post-election split?

    The electoral math for the 2016 election is crystal clear: Trump needs to carry the two battleground states that Romney lost – Florida and Ohio – preserve Romney’s slim victory in North Carolina, capture Pennsylvania, which Rom ney lost by just 5 points (largely by failing to compete there) and hold on to two prized Red States, Arizona and Georgia. If Trump can do this, he wins 273 electoral votes – 3 more than the majority required – and becomes the next president of the United States. How’s Trump doing? He’s regained his lead in Ohio, has reduced Florida to...

    Washington (CNN)The Democratic National Committee is suing the Republican National Committee for aiding GOP nominee Donald Trump as he argues that the presidential election is "rigged," claiming that Trump's argument is designed to suppress the vote in minority communities. The suit, filed Wednesday in US District Court in New Jersey, argues that the RNC has not sufficiently rebuked Trump for the line of attack, which he has used as a rallying cry and is assumed to be a way to explain away a potential loss on Election Day.
