  • If Edward Snowden Is Right About Clinton's Emails, Bernie Sanders Will Win a Landslide Victory

    The Huffington Post's Politics The Blog ^ | October 1, 2015 | H.A. Goodman, columnist
    Perhaps nobody on the planet knows more about intelligence protocol than Edward Snowden. If Snowden says it's "completely ridiculous" to believe that Clinton's emails were safe, then yes, it's fair to include his viewpoint in any critique of Hillary Clinton's latest controversy. In addition, since I believe Senator Bernie Sanders is desperately needed at this point in U.S. history, and electing Clinton or a Republican would essentially be nominating the same president on war and foreign policy, it's important to address relevant analysis of the email controversy. There seems to be a bizarre paradigm of thought among some Democrats that...

    Last week, Rep. James Clyburn (Dem-SC) sat down with Voice of America host Carol Castiel and network congressional correspondent Cindy Saine. When asked about the Iran deal Clyburn said, “It’s one thing to review it. It’s something else to veto. I don’t think that Congress ought to have any right to circumvent the president. And this foolishness that has been going on up here, it’s just foolishness. And we have to be very, very careful and for people to not see … Look, I am old enough to have seen and paid close attention to many presidents, all the way...

Congressional Black Caucus members who are offended on Obama’s behalf and can smell racism anywhere.The other consists of opponents of Israel.It’s instructive to compare the list of boycotters to the 54 members of Congress who signed...
  • Democrat: Obama Should Do What He Wants and Let the Courts Decide If It’s Legal

    The Democrats have rolled out a couple of dishonest talking points in support of Obama’s executive order amnesty. One is that Presidents Reagan and Bush 41 both used executive orders on immigration. What that ignores is that both were cleaning up a law duly passed by Congress. In this case, Obama is explicitly acting because Congress won’t bend to his royal will. The new talking point, trotted out here by Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) is that this executive order is just like Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation, and that Obama should do it and then just let the courts decide whether...

    Rep. James Clyburn's (D-S.C.) Republican challenger referred to same-sex couples as "gremlins" and "bullies" in a Facebook post urging supporters to oppose gay marriage at the polls this fall. Anthony Culler, the GOP nominee for Clyburn's seat, wrote a Facebook post on Oct. 14 decrying same-sex marriage as "a pestilence that has descended on our society, against our will, by those in the courts and government that do not value the traditional family."

    A day after a Florida jury deadlocked on a murder charge in the so-called "loud music" trial, the highest-ranking African-American member of Congress said the case is more proof that race does matter in America — and in its courtrooms. Rep. James Clyburn of South Carolina, the House's assistant Democratic leader, made the remarks Sunday after serving as a guest speaker, celebrating Black History Month, at St. Luke Baptist Church in Paterson, the city where he spent his summers working as a teenager and later got married. Sunday would have been the 19th birthday of Jordan Davis, who was killed...

    Assistant Democratic Leader James Clyburn (D-S.C.) on Sunday said most House Democrats who broke with their party and voted for a GOP-backed health insurance bill did so to "insulate themselves against sound bites." Almost 40 House Democrats voted on Friday for a Republican-led bill to to allow everyone to keep their health insurance, regardless of that plan's quality, splitting with President Obama and their party leadership. Most hail from competitive House districts, and Clyburn says that's the reason they backed the bill. "What you saw with those 39 people, maybe nine people had real serious concerns. The fact of the...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The White House says President Barack Obama has invited House Democratic leaders to dinner Wednesday at a hotel near the White House. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California will attend the private dinner, along with the No. 2 and No. 3 Democrats in the House, congressmen Steny Hoyer of Maryland and James Clyburn of South Carolina. The top Democrat on the House Budget Committee, Maryland's Chris Van Hollen, will be there, plus the chair of the House Democrat's campaign arm, Steve Israel of New York.

    Townhall.com ^ | July 16, 2012 | Star Parker
    The House Agriculture Committee has reported out its version of a new farm bill that will cut $16.5 billion over 10 years from funding of SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), once known as food stamps. The cuts in the House bill exceed those in the Senate bill by $12 billion. Sixteen-and-a-half billion dollars over a decade amount to a whopping 2 percent cut in SNAP program expenditures, which last year alone came to $78 billion. At a time when we are running trillion-dollar annual federal budget deficits, it's hard to see a 2 percent cut in any large spending program...

    How pathetic. Jim Clyburn chose Martin Luther King Day to smear Mitt Romney with the shop-worn charge of racism. Straining absurdly to make his accusation, the South Carolina Dem, appearing on Al Sharpton's MSNBC show, somehow managed to equate Romney's criticism of the politics of envy with the people who sought to keep Rosa Parks in the back of the bus.

    Rep. James Clyburn (D‑S.C.) said Thursday that Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain's reference to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) as "Princess Nancy" was "disrespectful" and "unbecoming." During Wednesday's CNBC debate Cain said Pelosi, who in the last Congress served as House Speaker, had held up a healthcare bill that should have been passed. "Princess Nancy sent it to committee and it stayed there. It never came out. H.R. ... 3,000 allows the decision to be with the doctors and the patients, not with the bureaucrats in Washington, D.C.," said Cain. Cain was discussing his ideas for reforming the healthcare...

    A leading House Democrat is hoping to use his prestigious seat on the deficit-cutting supercommittee to close the growing gully that divides the rich and the poor in America. Rep. James Clyburn (S.C.) said the recent debate over slashing spending and reducing deficits has all but ignored the toll those cuts could exact on lower income folks, particularly in minority communities. Clyburn – the third-ranking House Democrat and a member of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) – is vowing to use his perch on the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction to tackle the nation's enormous wealth gap. "In 1963,...

    Some Democratic members of the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction, tasked with identifying $1.5 trillion in spending cuts, have become the subject of criticism, but their appointments were only finalized Thursday. Sen. Patty Murray of Washington, and Reps. James Clyburn of South Carolina and Xavier Becerra of California are already being targeted for circumstances that could compromise their abilities to negotiate. Becerra, for example, wasted no time before using his appointment as a fundraising tool for his own campaign.
