    WASHINGTON - Exxon Mobil Corp. and other large oil companies are backing a carbon tax proposal put forward earlier this year by a group of former Republican leaders including James A. Baker III, the former secretary of state and a Houston attorney. The Climate Leadership Coalition, a group that includes Baker, former Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson, and former Secretary of State George Shultz, announced a list of "founding members" Tuesday that includes Exxon Mobil, BP, Shell, Total, General Motors and Johnson & Johnson. "We support @TheCLCouncil as a founding member and are working to support its policy development process," Exxon...
  • If The Left Wins Their Soft Coup, Everyone Loses - But Mostly Them

    You have to wonder how liberals think this works. So, a manifestly conflicted special counsel leading a pack of maxed-out Democrat donors decides Donald Trump has to be kicked out of office for “obstructing justice” regarding a cynical lie about him cavorting with the Kremlin and…then what? President Pence, until they do the same thing to him? Or do we just skip right to President Felonia von Pantsuit, shrug our shoulders, and give up on our foolish dream of having a say in our own governance? Straightforward from here is….Because normal Americans are woke to the scam. No, the affidavits...
  • Rick ‘Put A Bullet In Trump’ Wilson: POTUS Supporters See Scalise Shooting As ‘Blessing’

    GOP establishment consultant Rick Wilson, one of the most vile “Never Trumpers” who once said the donor class should “put a bullet in” Donald Trump, thinks supporters of President Trump saw the assassination attempt on House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) as a “blessing.” “A lot of clickservatives saw yesterday as a grim blessing,” Wilson tweeted the morning after a gunman who hated Trump and Republicans opened fire on Republicans who were practicing for the Congressional Baseball Game. After saying that Trump supporters were “dead right” about the “media double standard,” Wilson claimed “the thing they really loved… even at...

    Rep. Mark Sanford said Thursday that President Trump was “partially” to blame for some of the hostility in the country that led to the shooting of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and others this week. “I would argue the president has unleashed, partially, again not in anyway totally, but partially to blame for the demons that have been unleashed,” Mr. Sanford, South Carolina Republican, said on MSNBC.

    President Donald Trump has failed at getting the proper message out during his time as a politician and is "sabotaging his own agenda," political analyst Karl Rove wrote in an opinion piece. Rove, who worked in the White House under former President George W. Bush, argued in The Wall Street Journal that Trump's Twitter habit is causing a lot of problems for him. "Mr. Trump has figured out how to tweet his way around the mainstream media," Rove wrote. "Yet by disregarding basic fact checking, he is deepening the already considerable doubts Americans have about his competence and trustworthiness."

    Just days after launching a new political action committee, former Democratic Vice President Joe Biden will join Republican officials and donors at a weekend retreat hosted by former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney. Biden will be interviewed by Romney during a Friday evening event in Park City, Utah, at the invitation-only summit, according to a Biden spokesman and participants briefed on the schedule. The speaker lineup for what is traditionally a gathering of Romney allies is packed with high-profile Republicans, among them House Speaker Paul Ryan and Sens. Lindsey Graham and John McCain. Ryan was Romney’s running mate in 2012....

    RUSH: I just saw a little story on CNN. Mitch McConnell’s out there saying, “I don’t know where, I don’t know how, I just don’t see how I’m gonna get 50 votes for the House health care bill. I just don’t see it.” No surprise, is it? The Republicans own the Senate. Well, they run it. They own the House, and the Republicans, “I don’t know where we’re gonna find the votes for this.” This is just outrageous. In fact, I’ve got a Wall Street Journal story today talking about — we’ve been talking about this ourselves — if the...

    Tuesday Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said President Donald Trump’s budget was dead on arrival. In a statement, McCain said, “President Trump’s $603 billion defense budget request is inadequate to the challenges we face, illegal under current law, and part of an overall budget proposal that is dead on arrival in Congress.”
  • ‘Almost speechless’ McCain, Flake are go-to anti-Trump Republicans in NAFTA, Comey, Russia fights

    The Arizona pair — especially McCain — has continued to be top Republicans critics of Trump in the White House’s current battles over the firing of FBI Director Jim Comey and ties with Russia. Flake and McCain are top Republican backers of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and other free trade deals. Trump is reworking NAFTA with Mexico and Canada. Those are Arizona’s top two trading partners. McCain told Fox News Sunday he’s “almost speechless” over Trump reportedly calling Comey a “nut job” to Russia’s foreign minister and ambassador. McCain and U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., are also...

    “People don’t have enough to eat. People have no food. There’s great violence. And we will do whatever is necessary, and we’ll work together to do whatever is necessary to help with fixing that, and I’m really talking on a humanitarian level,” Trump said. Trump’s remarks came during a joint press conference with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos at the White House. Western Venezuela shares a long border with Colombia. President Trump did not specify what kind of help the U.S. would provide but said the U.S. would work with Colombia and other countries. Congress recently approved $450 million in...
  • Senate rejects repeal of Obama drilling rule

    Three Republicans joined Senate Democrats on Wednesday to reject an effort to overturn an Obama administration rule limiting methane emissions from oil and natural gas drilling. Only 49 senators voted to move forward with debate on legislation to undo the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) rule, short of the 51 votes needed. Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Susan Collins (R-Maine) and John McCain (R-Ariz.) joined all 48 members of the Democratic caucus in rejecting the resolution under the Congressional Review Act (CRA). Graham and Collins had previously publicized their plans to vote against the legislation. But McCain’s vote came as a...

    The Kushner family came to the United States as refugees, worked hard and made it big — and if you invest in Kushner properties, so can you. That was the message delivered Saturday by White House senior adviser Jared Kushner’s sister Nicole Kushner Meyer to a ballroom full of wealthy Chinese investors in Beijing. Over several hours of slide shows and presentations, representatives from the Kushner family business urged Chinese citizens gathered at a Ritz-Carlton hotel to consider investing hundreds of thousands of dollars in a New Jersey luxury apartment complex that would help them secure what’s known as an investor...

    In case that wasn’t perfectly clear, CQ Roll Call’s April “Capitol Insiders Survey” found that large majorities of Republican staffers on Capitol Hill believe the Freedom Caucus is a “negative force” in the Republican Party. The results are not surprising, but are illustrative of the hostility to true conservatism in the swamp. Survey: Republicans see harm from Freedom Caucus — Roll Call (@rollcall) May 4, 2017 Of the 100 self-identified Republicans who responded to the email poll, 71 percent had a negative view of the Freedom Caucus; 22 percent of the GOP respondents had a positive view, while...

    So much has been said recently about the rivalry between the House Freedom Caucus and a group called “The Tuesday Group,” a group of largely unnamed so-called “moderates” in the House. The leadership of the Tuesday Group is named, and some members willingly speak to reporters about their agenda. The group boasts of a membership of somewhere between 40 and 50 members, but only a few have outed themselves as part of the secretive backroom group. The most vocal member is one of the co-chairs named Charlie Dent, a Pennsylvanian Republican whose liberty score reveals that he votes liberal 72%...

    John Kasich believes in a path, in a purpose set from above. He just can’t figure out what this path or purpose is supposed to be. A year after losing his Republican primary campaign that never got off the ground, 100 days into Donald Trump’s presidency, the Ohio governor doesn’t quite know where he’s headed, or where the Republican Party is headed either.

    American Thinker ^ | 05/02/2017 | Brian C. Joondeph
    Once again, Congressional Republicans delivered a swift kick to the crotch of their voters, in the form of their proposed budget this week. Congressional big spenders reached a deal Sunday, with a bill over 1600 pages in length. Almost as long as Obamacare. But at least it’s a budget. Last year Congress had no budget, instead papering over their fiscal irresponsibility via temporary spending measures. Since this budget is proposed by the Republican Congress, with the expectation of the Republican President signing it into law, one would reasonably expect that the budget represents Republican priorities. Funding programs promoted on the...

    Note: When things are so bad that the establishment RINOs, who made caving on spending bills an art form, are admitting the Republican Party got rolled by Democrats on a spending bill, something really needs to change. RINO Senator Lindsey Graham, CR 33%, appearing on CNN Tuesday morning with Kate Bolduan, said that the GOP got their clocks cleaned by Democrats in negotiating the temporary spending bill, the so-called “Omnibus” that avoids a temporary government shutdown until September when a new budget is promised. “I don’t know if I’m going to vote for the bill they’re going to present to...

    The RINOs score yet another victory The newly agreed upon $1 trillion-plus spending package that will keep the federal government operating through Sept. 30 contains no funding for President Trump’s desperately needed border wall or crackdown on lawless sanctuary cities that let MS-13 gang members run wild. This is because House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) has no interest whatsoever in ending the open-borders free-for-all that has been the status quo for decades. Ryan supports the lawlessness. He profits from it. He may as well cross the aisle and become a Democrat.

Other officials added that she had weighed in on topics including climate, deportation, education and refugee policy.
