    Washington Examiner ^ | 3/21/16 | Joel Gehrke
    A pair of House committees is forming a bipartisan working group of eight lawmakers to prepare for possible legislation addressing how the widespread use of encryption affects law enforcement investigations. "The bipartisan encryption working group will examine the issues surrounding this ongoing national debate," House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., and House Energy and Commerce Committee Fred Upton. R-Mich., said Monday. As chairman of the two committees that have jurisdiction over encryption issues, Goodlatte and Upton are ex officio chairs of the working group. They released that statement jointly along with Michigan Rep. John Conyers and New Jersey Rep. Steve...

    One Republican has joined eight Democrats in creating the first Transgender Equality Task Force in Congress. Created by the Congressional LGBT Equality Caucus and chaired by Rep. Mike Honda, D-CA, the task force held a hearing yesterday to discuss challenges, especially violence, that transgender advocates say are prevalent among transgendered Americans. According to the description below the Human Rights Campaign's video of the two-hour forum, the event consisted of two panels. The first was about "the lived experience of transgender victims and educating on the scope of violence experienced by transgender people." The second panel included "HRC President Chad Griffin...
  • WATCH: ‘The View’ Host Attacks Christians, Then Her Co-Host Shut Her Down

    A Washington State high school football coach has defied the school’s orders to stop praying at midfield with his players after games, something the cast of The View discussed recently. Joe Kennedy, a football coach at Bremerton High School in Washington, has been praying at the 50-yard line since 2008, and is frequently joined – voluntarily – by players. The View host Raven-Symone tried a classic left-wing tactic to attack Kennedy, calling it “unfair” to kids who choose not to pray. Her co-host however, former Full House star Candace Cameron Bure, gave a strong rebuttal and defense of religious freedom....

    Just days after alluding that conservative activists are members of the Ku Klux Klan" former US Senate Candidate Gabriel Gomez (?-Massachusetts) donated $500, the maximum allowed by law, to independent progressive Jeffrey McCormick. McCormick, while running as an independent is a major contributor to Democrats nationally. As Red Mass Group previously reported, McCormick has a long history of supporting Democratic and progressive causes. Since 2007 McCormick has donated over $70,000 to federal candidates. Almost all of which has gone to Democrats. In 2007 McCormick Donated $2,250 to the Barack Obama Campaign. In 2009 McCormick Donated $500 to the Alan Khazei...
  • What Is The U.S. Doing At Chavez's Funeral?

    Amateur Diplomacy: Somebody explain to us why an official U.S. delegation was sent to Caracas for the funeral of Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez. It only boosts our enemies while diminishing America. The death of Chavez this week should have been an opportunity for the U.S. to rally global support for Venezuela's battered democrats and make a stand for democracy. Instead, the Obama administration has done all it can to validate and bolster Chavez's gangsterly minions desperate to perpetrate their Marxist kleptocracy. Already these surviving Chavistas have made clear who they are and what the U.S. can expect: President Obama called...
  • Joe Kennedy’s oil aid to dry up?

    The death of U.S.-bashing Venez­uelan strongman Hugo Chavez could put his pal Joseph Kennedy II’s Hub-based heating-oil-for-the-poor program out in the cold, energy experts said. With Chavez’s death from cancer yesterday, his successors must 
decide whether to continue state-run Citgo’s oil giveaways — including its agreement with Kennedy’s nonprofit Citizens Energy, which for years has given oil to the needy thanks in large part to Chavez’s largesse. “If the Citgo program goes away, Joe’s program goes away,” said Mark Wolfe of the National Energy Assistance Directors’ Association. “Venez­uela, under a different government, I’m sure they would re-evaluate all charitable givings...

    For more than half a century, the Kennedys were a force in U.S. politics. Their dominance began with John F. Kennedy’s 1960 presidential run and lasted until the death of Senator Edward M. Kennedy in 2009. The family’s return as a major political presence is not imminent, but it may not be that far off. A candidate for a Massachusetts seat in the U.S. House of Representatives is Joseph P. Kennedy III, a grandson of Robert F. Kennedy and a grandnephew of the president and the senator. He is running in a congressional district now largely represented by Representative Barney...

    As gas prices continue to soar around the country, Joe Kennedy III, the Democratic candidate for Rep. Barney Frank’s seat, wrote an online letter to supporters calling for an end to “cheap oil.” “Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush, Obama — they’ve all talked about the same thing: the need to wean ourselves off our debilitating dependence on foreign oil,” Kennedy wrote. “The cycle that allows cheap oil to trump tough choices has to stop,” he continued. “Forty years is enough.”

    It's been a busy month for Joseph Kennedy III. The son of former U.S. Rep. Joseph P. Kennedy II and grandson of the late Robert F. Kennedy is engaged to be married to Lauren Anne Birchfield, a fellow Harvard Law School graduate. The announcement comes a little more than a week after the 31-year-old Kennedy formed an exploratory committee as a first step toward a run for the U.S. House seat held by retiring Rep. Barney Frank.

    Just what Congress needs, a new Kennedy. Don’t underestimate the sheeple mentality here in Mass, especially in Fwank’s ultra-liberal district. They have no problem voting for someone based solely on his last name. (FOX 25/MyFoxBoston.com) — There is new speculation that Joseph P. Kennedy III is ready to run for Congress. Sources close to Kennedy have told Rhode Island Public Radio that the 31-year-old son of former Congressman Joe Kennedy is setting up fundraisers and taking a serous look at running for the seat left open by the retirement of Barney Frank. The younger Kennedy is a Harvard Law School...

    Massachusetts- For the last twenty four hours rumors have been pervading the internet and blogoshphere that Joseph P. Kennedy III, Grandson of RFK and namesake of the Kennedy scion, is seriously considering a run for congress. The response to this possibility has been largely positive but there are those out there who are not convinced that the young man from Boston has what it takes to live up to the hollowed and universally respected Kennedy name. “I’m just not convinced that this young man from Boston has what it takes to live up to the hollowed and universally respected Kennedy...

    BOSTON (AP) - Joseph P. Kennedy III, the son of a former congressman and the grandson of Robert F. Kennedy, said Sunday he had decided against running for the U.S. House from Massachusetts this year. Kennedy told The Associated Press that he wants to remain in his new job as a prosecutor in Cape Cod's Barnstable County. The 29-year-old Stanford University and Harvard Law graduate has held the post only for eight months.

    BOSTON (Associated Press) -- A top Massachusetts Democrat said Saturday that one of Robert F. Kennedy's grandsons is considering carrying on the family's vaunted political tradition by running for the U.S. House of Representatives. Joseph P. Kennedy III, one of the twin sons of former Rep. Joseph P. Kennedy II, may run this fall if Democratic Rep. William Delahunt decides against seeking re-election in his South Shore and Cape Cod district. Kennedy, 29, "has been considering it but he hasn't made a decision," said the Democrat, who demanded anonymity to speak about private conversations with the father and son.

    A top Massachusetts Democrat says one of Robert F. Kennedy’s grandsons is considering running for the U.S. House of Representatives. Joseph P. Kennedy III is one of the twin sons of former Rep. Joseph P. Kennedy II. The source, who demanded anonymity to speak about private conversations with the father and son, says the younger Kennedy is considering running if Rep. William Delahunt decides against seeking re-election. Delahunt has been criticized lately for his handling of a 1986 shooting in Braintree by a woman now accused of killing three colleagues at an Alabama university. Delahunt’s district includes Cape Cod, where...

    With speculation mounting that US Representative William D. Delahunt will not seek reelection, Joseph P. Kennedy III, son of the former congressman and great-grandson of the Kennedy family patriarch, is eyeing a run to succeed him in the 10th Congressional District, senior Democratic sources say. The sources say that Kennedy, a 29-year-old assistant district attorney on the Cape considered by many to be the most promising member of his generation to extend the family’s political legacy, is not close to making any decisions and will not speak publicly until Delahunt announces whether he will seek another term. The discussions are...

    Joseph Kennedy III, the son of former congressman Joe Kennedy, is being tipped to launch a political career soon as insiders mull over who the next Kennedy in public life will be. Kennedy, 29, may be interested in the South Shore-Cape Cod House seat currently held by Democratic Congressman Bill Delahunt, who has not yet committed to a tough re-election fight. “Massachusetts – and Capitol Hill – without a Kennedy is like Fenway Park without the Wall,’’ Dan Payne, a Democratic media consultant, referring to the famous Green Monster told the Boston Globe. “They were meant to be together.’’ Others...

    Three recent TV ads get our attention with totalitarianism. They do so to different degrees and in different ways. And they certainly are barometers of the shift in the popular culture in this once-free country. Green PoliceThe first was the “Green Police” advertisement for Audi that was broadcast during this year’s Super Bowl. It starts with a clerk asking a customer that standard question, “Paper or plastic?” When the customer answers the latter, Green Police swoop in and cuff him with the words, “You picked the wrong day to mess with the eco-system.” A man is asked by the eco-cops...

    The other main area of lying [besides health] centered on [John F. Kennedy's] curriculum vitae. In 1940 his thesis was written for him by a number of people, including Arthur Krock of the New York Times, and Joe's personal speechwriter, who described it as a 'very sloppy job, mostly magazine and newspaper clippings stuck together.' But, processed, it not only allowed Jack to graduate cum laude but also appeared in book form as Why England Slept. Old Joe and his men turned it into a 'bestseller,' partly by using influence with publishers such as Henry Luce, partly by buying 30,000-40,000...

    Joseph P. Kennedy II said today he regrets not seeking the U.S. Senate seat vacated by his uncle, but the former congressman has no plans to run against U.S. Sen.-elect Scott Brown in 2012. Kennedy, who was in Brighton today delivering heating oil for his nonprofit Citizens Energy, was asked whether Brown’s victory made him regret his decision not to run to succeed his uncle, the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy. “The thought has crossed my mind,” Kennedy said with a chuckle yesterday. “Maybe that wasn’t the greatest decision I ever made.”

    Joe Kennedy this evening posted a very cryptic message on his Facebook page indicating that he can't officially take his name off the ballot but it seems he is at least actively or mentally dropping out of the race. Joe Kennedy For Senate Simply Put: 1. My name can not be removed from the ballot - 12/11/09 was the deadline. 2. I only have one vote to give and that is my own. 3. I have not and will not ask anyone to do anything but vote who they want to vote for. If you people to vote for your...
