    Despite their roots in reality, there is no doubt that these crises -- and the White House and Senate's attempts to tackle them -- would be reported differently if Hillary Clinton were president. It took more than five years, but the corporate media finally have the tools and strategy to successfully defeat President Donald Trump.The corporate media have these, mind you, despite the Democratic Party, whose foibles, stumbles, and misfires over those same five years have only complicated efforts, kicking off with a disastrous 2016 defeat and eventually culminating in a near-invisible and increasingly senile presidential candidate stumbling through a...

    House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said during a press conference on Thursday that it “could be appropriate” to rename some military bases that were named after Confederate generals. McCarthy signaled his openness to renaming some military bases named after Confederates. This would have major implications for large military bases named after Confederates such as Fort Benning in Georgia and Fort Bragg in North Carolina. “I think it could be appropriate to change” some military bases, McCarthy said. The Senate Armed Services Committee approved an amendment on Wednesday to require the Department of Defense to rename military bases or and...

    Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King will face off against four other primary candidates Tuesday night, and the embattled congressman confirms the poll numbers between him and his closest challenger are tight. “Well, it's closer than we would like. But we've been on top in every legitimate number, and in absolutely every published poll, so that tells me that the voters are gonna make their decision,” he told the Washington Examiner on Thursday. “But one thing is that none of my opponents have criticized a single vote that I put up in 18 years in this Congress," said King, first elected...

    The Hill ^ | 05 27 2020 | Chris Mills Rodrigo and Jordain Carney
    A bill to reauthorize three expired surveillance programs is in jeopardy, with President Trump urging Republicans to oppose it and growing concerns from progressives on a key amendment. House Democratic leaders say they still intend to vote on the measure this week, but it’s suddenly unclear if it can muster the 218 votes needed to clear the chamber — despite an earlier version of the bill winning 278 votes in March. Despite the limbo status, Democratic leadership is signaling they will move forward, setting up a showdown on the House floor over the fate of the bill. An update from...

    The Hill ^ | 05/27/20 10:16 AM EDT | BY JORDAIN CARNEY
    The Justice Department said on Wednesday that it opposes House-proposed changes to surveillance reform legislation and will urge President Trump to veto the bill if it reaches his desk. The statement, from Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd, is the latest setback for the legislation, which is currently scheduled to get a vote on the House floor on Wednesday, after Trump on Tuesday night urged GOP opposition to vote against it. The veto threat from the Justice Department is a marked shift from March, when Attorney General William Barr helped negotiate the initial version of the bill with House leadership. The...

  • McConnell Rejects Dem Attempt to Jam Pet Projects into Coronavirus Small Business Relief Bill

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and GOP House Leader Kevin McCarthy are pushing back against Democratic demands to include issues unrelated to coronavirus relief for small businesses in an expansion of the loan program. Politico: “Republicans reject Democrats’ reckless threat to continue blocking job-saving funding unless we renegotiate unrelated programs which are not in similar peril,” McConnell (R-Ky.) and McCarthy (R-Calif.) said in a joint statement. The $2 trillion virus relief bill contained a $350 billion fund for small business loans. That program has proven to be overwhelmingly popular and is in danger of running out of cash in a...

    Democrats are already posturing for provisions they failed to get into the last one. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's failure to secure financial assistance for Planned Parenthood in a historic coronavirus relief package has her talking about a new one, according to a top Republican lawmaker. 'Before' the historic relief package was passed last week, Pelosi said lawmakers must begin drafting a fourth relief package to deal with the coronavirus pandemic, arguing that the bill was insufficient. McCarthy said on Fox News's Sunday Morning Futures..."What concerns me is, when I listen to Nancy Pelosi talk about a fourth package now, it's...

    Believe me, these ten minutes are worth your time. Here's Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY) absolutely ripping House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and the Democrats for sneaking in a laundry list of progressive, environmental provisions into the CARES Act, the third phase of Congress's coronavirus response intended to provide aid, relief, and economic security for individuals and businesses during this unpredictable era. Barrasso kicked off his remarks by condemning "the demands by the Democrats to muck up a bill that is designed as a rescue operation for the American people." He next identified the culprit. "Nancy Pelosi flew back from California...

    This is not an emergency virus bill. It is a Democratic election wish list, at a time hundreds are dying, thousands are losing their businesses, and millions are out of work in the United States. The weekend began with a bipartisan plan. People were hopeful. Outside of Washington, business owners told The Federalist they finally saw light in all the darkness. They thought they’d be able to hire their employees back again. These are employees who have families, mortgages, and lives, people who have never asked for public assistance in their lives and never thought they’d have to.The mood in...

    The Federalist ^ | March 23, 2020 | Christpher Bedford> Just beyond -- and in the midst of -- the public health and financial liquidity crises is the expansive and potentially devastating solvency crisis. The U.S. economy is in trouble, and if you can believe it, that trouble isn’t simply the closure of Main Street, the massive number of nationwide layoffs, and the danger of financial crisis we’ve all heard about. As companies run out of cash, pushing them toward insolvency, our country’s business-to-business trust is at risk of coming apart — tearing and ultimately collapsing the delicate system that keeps industries as diverse as farming, chemicals, and aluminum...

This is racist.”

    House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy boldly predicted Friday that Democrats will lose the majority in the House of Representatives this cycle with Bernie Sanders at the top of their ticket, saying the party has “surrendered to the socialists.” In an interview with Fox News on the sidelines of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) outside Washington, McCarthy weighed in on the warnings from within the Democratic Party that a Sanders nomination could endanger their hold on the House under Nancy Pelosi. McCarthy would be in line for the speakership should the chamber flip — and he eagerly played up those...

    Top Republicans defended Attorney General William Barr in an unusual joint statement of support one day after more than 2,000 former Justice Department officials called on him to resign. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California called the demand, organized by a group critical of President Trump, an effort “to intimidate” Barr. “Suggestions from outside groups that the Attorney General has fallen short of the responsibilities of his office are unfounded,” the three lawmakers said in the statement. “The Attorney General has shown that...

    As the Senate is set to vote on the removal from office of President Trump Wednesday — with acquittal all but assured — Republicans are already plotting to expunge his impeachment if they retake the House. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi may have taunted that impeachment "will last forever,” but GOP Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, in line to be speaker if Republicans retake the majority in the November election, doesn’t agree. “This is the fastest, weakest, most political impeachment in history,” McCarthy told The Post Wednesday. “I don’t think it should stay on the books.”

    Once House Democrats voted to impeach President Donald Trump, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) made the media rounds with the same phrase: "Once a president is impeached, he's impeached for life," she would say with a smile. "We had confidence- we have confidence in our case that it is impeachable, that this president is impeached for life, regardless of any gamesmanship on the part of Mitch McConnell, however, that could still come to bear," Pelosi told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos last month. "We're still confident in the impeachment and we think it's enough testimony to remove him from office."On Sunday, House Minority...

    Republicans are shocked and outraged after their Democratic colleagues voted to block House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s resolution to condemn the Iranian government and support the Iranian protesters who are boldly demonstrating against the oppressive regime. Leader McCarthy's resolution does the following: 1) condemns Iran for killing over 1,000 Iranian citizens who were protesting their government, 2) condemns the Government of Iran for shooting down Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752, 3) condemns the Government of Iran for repeatedly lying to its people and to the world about its responsibility for the downing of Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752, 4) calls...

    As news broke that the US struck and killed Qasem Soleimani, President Trump was dining at his Mar-a-Lago club, surrounded by old friends and others like House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. As meatloaf and ice cream were served, the Pentagon confirmed that the US was behind the strikes, the only statement from the administration throughout the night. Putting this airstrike in perspective: The scene Friday was similar to the one after Trump gave the order for American forces to carry out the missile strike on a Syrian airfield in the spring 2017. After that strike, Trump went into great detail...

    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) on Sunday told Fox News' Martha Bartiromo he believes the FBI covering up their spying on the Trump campaign is a "modern day Watergate." "If you pause for one moment and read this IG report by [Michael] Horowitz, here's the FBI, they broke into President Trump, at the time candidate Trump's campaign, spied on him and then they covered it up. It is a modern day Watergate. And you got Democrats who aren't even willing to look into that," McCarthy explained. "That is the area we should be look into. It's a modern day...
