    Senator Markey has announced his support for the Iran deal that will let the terrorist regime inspect its own Parchin nuclear weapons research site, conduct uranium enrichment, build advanced centrifuges, buy ballistic missiles, fund terrorism and have a near zero breakout time to a nuclear bomb. There was no surprise there. Markey had topped the list of candidates supported by the Iran Lobby. And the Iranian American Political Action Committee (IAPAC) had maxed out its contributions to his campaign. After more fake suspense, Al Franken, another IAPAC backed politician who also benefited from Iran Lobby money, came out for the...

    Representative Mike Honda (D-Calif.) reintroduced the Reuniting Families Act (RFA) with added language that would allow homosexuals in the United States to petition to bring their “spouse” here from countries that do not allow same-sex marriage. Even though the two persons are not legally married, the bill would allow the homosexual partner abroad to be labeled a “spouse” for immigration purposes to expedite the process. The bill defines the relationship as a “permanent partnership.” …

    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...
  • Momentum grows to scrap Pentagon's ban on transgender troops

    The Hill ^ | June 27, 2015 | Martin Matishak
    There is renewed energy on Capitol Hill to lift the Defense Department's ban on transgender troops. Lawmakers view recent steps by the Pentagon and some of the armed services to expand protections for gay and lesbian troops as an opportunity to do away with the decades-old prohibition on allowing transgender troops to serve openly. They are also taking note of other societal changes in calling for the ban on service by transgender trips to be lifted. “In politics, I think it’s always appropriate to take advantage of timing. Whether it’s taking down the Confederate flag or creating equality in the...
  • California Dem moves to outlaw some civilian body armor

    Bob Owens at Bearing Arms talks about a new piece of Democrat legislation which, rather than trying to ban various types of weapons, seeks to restrict civilians from using certain classes of body armor. These anti-gun Democrats keep failing to stop us from having guns… and so they seem intent on making sure that we cannot defend ourselves against theirs. HR 5344, the laughably titled “Responsible Body Armor Possession Act,” is nothing more or less than attempt ban Level III and higher body armor that can defeat most common rifle ammunition, such as the steel plate armor sold by AR500...
  • Reps. Mike Honda, Tom McClintock find reelection no longer a lock

    LA Times ^ | 5/2/14 | Seema Mehta
    SUNNYVALE, Calif. — Rep. Mike Honda is a champion of liberal Democrats, Rep. Tom McClintock a rock-ribbed Republican. Both are faithful to their parties' orthodoxy and represent Northern California districts heavily tilted in their favor. In the past, the two — with 60 years in elected office between them — would have coasted to reelection, the field cleared by their longevity, stature and party blessing. Not anymore. The party primary is gone in California, except for presidential contests, and with it the parties' ability to protect their stalwarts. Today, Honda and McClintock find their jobs threatened by younger challengers in...

    A top building trades union is launching a midterm-election assault on House Democrats who oppose construction of the Keystone XL oil pipeline. A letter distributed Friday by the Laborers' International Union of North America (LIUNA) to the districts of 27 House Democrats calls for union members to make sure their representative "feels the power and the fury of LIUNA this November." Their crime: signing a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry last month urging him to reject Keystone, which would carry oil sands from Canada to Gulf Coast refineries.
  • Congressman Mike Honda’s Wake-up Call

    ally the base, but will that be enough? Mike Honda sits in what’s been billed as a town hall meeting in Fremont, surrounded by healthcare experts. The congressman starts to drift as they answer questions about the the Affordable Care Act’s effects on seniors, who comprise most of the audience. Having heard yet another answer about Obamacare’s deductibles or small business eligibility requirements—it’s hard to say at times, as the microphone cuts out intermittently—Honda sets his glasses down on the table and locks his fingers behind his head. He closes his eyes and takes a 20-second power nap. Honda, 72,...
  • Unethical behavior by Democrat Congressman, Mike Honda

    Congressman Mike Honda is my representative in Congress. I believe that Congressman Mike Honda has made an ethics violation. He posted an October, 2102 report from the Committee on Energy and Commerce on his Facebook page. This report details Mr. Honda’s assumptions about the effects of Paul Ryan’s budget upon the Seniors in his district. The posting of this report at this time appears to be on overt attempt to influence the Presidential election. It influences the election because Congressman Ryan is the opposing party candidate for Vice President. This overt attempt to influence the election is using taxpayer dollars...

    A U.S. lawmaker called Wednesday for a boycott of public transit systems in Washington and other cities running a pro-Israel advertisement that denounces "the savage" in Muslim countries, AFP reported. The advertisements, which have also run on trains in New York and buses in San Francisco, went up this week at four stations in the U.S. capital area after a federal judge ruled that the group enjoyed a right to free speech. Citing security concerns, the operator of the Metro had sought to delay the billboards, which read, "In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the...

    Nineteen-term congressman Rep. Pete Stark has taken a lot of heat lately — some of it dished by The Chronicle here and here and here — for his unfounded accusations and Congressional record. His Democratic opponent in June’s primary, Alameda County prosecutor Eric Swalwell, went so far as to tell us “I don’t think he’s fit to be in office.” Rep. Mike Honda, D-San Jose, disagrees. At least that’s what the five-term congressman said after we chased him down the hallway and up half a flight of stairs with the SF Chronicle/’s Shaky Hands Productions video crew. ..

    The House of Representatives passed a bi-partisan resolution Tuesday night reaffirming “In God We Trust” as the official motto of the United States. The 396-9 vote came at the request of Rep. Randy Forbes (R-VA) – in part over President Obama’s refusal to correct remarks he made that misstated the motto as “E pluribus unum” instead of “In God We Trust.”Lawmakers voting against “In God We Trust” include Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), Rep. Gary Ackerman (D-NY), Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich), Rep. Judy Chu (D-CA), Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO), Rep. Mike Honda (D-CA), Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA), Rep.

    The healthcare/illegal immigration issue has risen again, thanks to 2 letters sent by about 20 or oso extreme leftist in the House of Representatives led by Congressman Mike Honda. The 1st letter is a request for quicker access to Medicare benefits for legal immigrants, benefits that we can't even afford for U.S. citizens. Here's a quote from the 1st letter below. Notice the lack of concern over the tenth amendment of the U.S. Constitution (The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to...

    Representative Mike Honda (CA-15) is holding a tele-townhall "raffle" for access to his Tuesday, August 25, 2009 @ 6:30PM event. If you are a constituent, you can throw your name, address, email address, phone number, and zip-code into the hat and see if you are one of the lucky constituents who will be blessed by the presence of Rep. Honda's voice. I may seem a little perturbed. Why you may ask. When I feel my federal Representative is hiding from his constituents, especially when he is needed the most raises a danger flag. When your Congressman has to collect all...

    Seven House Democrats have written Attorney General Eric Holder invoking a list of grievances from radical Islamist groups and asking that Holder meet with representatives from those groups to hear their concerns, the Investigative Project on Terrorism has learned. The grievances include the use of convicted felons as informants in mosques, alleged religious profiling of Somali Muslims in Minnesota and elsewhere and allegations that the FBI is working with foreign governments to question American citizens who are terror suspects. In the letter, the representatives said: "These concerns raise legitimate questions about due process, justice, and equal treatment under the law....

    Black, Latino and Asian lawmakers warned Democratic leaders that any health care overhaul that ignores health gaps between whites and minorities will face stiff opposition. The lawmakers said they would be hard-pressed to support a bill without a new program providing access to health care for all Americans. "The public health option has to be there," Rep. Mike Honda, a California Democrat who chairs the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus, said at a news conference. "If we don't have a public option, there's no discussion." Republicans are resisting a government health insurance program that would compete with private insurance companies,...

    California Democratic Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer followed presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton's lead on Wednesday and announced they would get rid of donations from a fundraiser who is wanted for sentencing on a 1991 grand theft charge. Two California Democratic House members, Mike Honda of San Jose and Doris Matsui of Sacramento, also said they were dumping campaign cash from Norman Hsu. The moves came after two days of scrutiny on Norman Hsu, who had donated $23,000 to Clinton. The New York senator plans to give the money to charity. Hsu gave $1,000 to Feinstein and $2,000 to...

    Japan today said it regretted a US congressional resolution demanding that it formally apologise for the use of tens of thousands of Asian women as sex slaves during the second world war, and insisted it had already made amends to the victims. The US House of Representatives passed a nonbinding resolution calling on the Japanese government to "formally acknowledge, apologise and accept historical responsibility in a clear and unequivocal manner" for the sexual enslavement of as many as 200,000 "comfort women" in the 30s and 40s. The victims, mostly from Korea, China and the Philippines, were taken from their homes...

    Sold-Out Event Raises More Than $620,000 for Civil Rights Work More than 1,000 people turned out on Saturday at the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) banquet in Arlington, Va., to hear addresses by several elected officials, including Keith Ellison, the first Muslim in Congress. The event raised more than $620,000 to support CAIR's civil rights and advocacy work on behalf of the American Muslim community. (Another dinner held by CAIR's Southern California chapter (CAIR-LA) over the weekend raised more than $430,000. Some 1,800 people attended that event.) Elected officials who spoke at the sold-out event included Representative- elect Ellison (D-MN),...

    A California lawmaker is calling on President Bush to take a stand against what he calls "right-wing immigration extremists." In the Democrats' weekly radio address, Congressman Mike Honda says Bush should denounce House Republicans who support measures that would treat people who sneak across the border as felons who should be deported. Honda, a third-generation Japanese-American, says the U.S. can't afford to play partisan politics with immigration reform or border security. He adds that he was disappointed by the president's latest efforts on immigration, which he dismissed as a "public relations campaign."
