    Congressional Democrats anxious to force a withdrawal of American forces from Iraq are frustrated by their inability to muster a veto-proof majority for legislation that would establish a firm date for retreat. But what they cannot do directly they are now working hard to do indirectly. According to Defense Secretary Robert Gates, Incirlik Air Base near Adana, Turkey is the transshipment point for about 70% of all air cargo (including 33% of the fuel) going to supply US forces in Iraq. Included are about 95% of the new ďMRAPĒ -- mine-resistant, ambush-protected -- vehicles designed to save the lives of...

    Rainbow flag signs with "#ShootBack" written on them were found plastered across West Hollywood on Thursday morning, causing a stir among residents and condemnation from city leaders, less than a week after the shooting rampage at a gay nightclub in Orlando. The flags, blending a snake symbol used by the Tea Party with the symbol for gay pride, were found all over the Southern California city Thursday morning, including in front of City Hall and one of the city's most popular gay bars, the Abbey. Crews worked all afternoon to remove the signs. City leaders say even though they're still...

    In a private meeting of Democrats on Wednesday, Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.) begged his colleagues to push a measure that might have actually prevented Sunday morningís carnage in Orlando: an assault weapons ban. Cicilline was answering the call of President Barack Obama and presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, to keep ďweapons of warĒ off the streets. But Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi nixed it. Better, she said, to focus on barring terror suspects from buying guns. That measureís a no-brainer for Democrats, she reasoned, and easier to explain to the public.

    A federal judge ruled Friday that a lobbyist and former Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) official can testify for a coal company in its lawsuit against the agency. The EPA had sought to block Jeff Holmstead, who led the EPAís air pollution office under then-President George W. Bush from 2001 to 2005, from appearing as an expert witness in Murray Energy Corp.ís case. The agency argued that Holmsteadís time at the EPA is a significant conflict of interest and his testimony would amount to little more than unreliable legal conclusions. The EPA ďeffectively argues that, because Mr. Holmstead once worked at...

According to Mrs. Clinton, she'd encountered people at campaign events who told her "I really admire you, I really like you, I just don't know if I can vote for a woman to be president." Yeah--said no one ever. It's as if someone said to her "You're awesome, I love you, but I'm just too sexist to check the box next to your name."

    Democrats shouted "Shame! Shame!," but seven Republicans switched their votes and defeated a measure to protect gay rights. The final vote was 213-212 after the chaos on the House floor. That was enough to defeat an amendment by Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, D-N.Y., aimed at upholding an executive order that bars discrimination against LGBT employees by federal contractors. Maloney and other Democrats were incensed. "They literally snatched discrimination from the jaws of equality," Maloney said. He said he had approached Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., as McCarthy worked on GOP colleagues to vote against the measure. McCarthy told Maloney to...

I think that women can--while it's an individual thing for men and for women as to the task--but I support removing any barriers to women serving in the military, including becoming commander in chief." ...

    Obama just lost another one of his top advisers. His legislative affairs director has stepped down, creating challenges to passing the president's agenda in his final year in the White House, according to The Hill. Chief of Obama's legislative affairs operation, Katie Beirne Fallon is leaving after two years on the job. Fallon, a former aide to Sens. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), was instrumental in helping Obama score victories in trade, budget and Iran nuclear deal agreements last year. Obama called Fallon a "close adviser" and a "good friend," in a statement on Friday. "Republicans and Democrats...

    Nancy Pelosi acknowledges the Iranians may do bad things with the $150 billion dollars set to be returned to the regime as part of the Iranian nuclear deal negotiated by the Obama Administration. Appearing on CNN's "New Day" on Wednesday, Pelosi even said the Iranians "have been doing bad things with the money that they have but the fact is the biggest threat to all of us is that Iran would have a nuclear weapon."

    Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) suggested Thursday that, when it comes to questions of U.S. citizenship, not all foreign births are the same. The House minority leader cited "a distinction" between Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.), who was born on a U.S. military base in Panama, and Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who was born in Canada to a U.S.- citizen mother. "I do think there is a distinction between John McCain being born to a family and serving our country in Panama than someone born in another country," Pelosi told reporters in the Capitol. "But, again, this is a constitutional issue that will...

    After the British victory at the Battle of the Second El Alamein in November of 1942, Winston Churchill spoke to the British people. Churchill eloquently stated, ‚ÄúNow, this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.‚ÄĚ Perhaps, the same can be said of the opening salvos of the 2016 Presidential Election. We have watched numerous debates on both sides, filled with candidates grandiose and not very grandiose. Gradually, the field is being thinned and on February 1, 2016, the games truly begin at the Iowa Caucuses....

    Republican lawmakers reportedly laughed at House Speaker Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) after he told them he had been given a promise from Senate Democratic Leader Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV). Lawmakers were amused at Ryan's naiveté for thinking that Reid is someone their party can trust. "I know, I know," Ryan replied with a smile, according to The Hill. Reid and Ryan just finished working together to help pass a $1 trillion dollar spending bill, which many argue contained far more liberal policies than conservative ones. Reid has promised Ryan that he will return to regular order in the New Year....

    Beltway-insider publications Politico and The Hill are hiding House Speaker Rep. Paul Ryan's 2016‚Äôs disastrous report card, even days after the Dec. 18 passage of his $1.1-plus trillion 2016 spending-and-tax plan. Ryan and his top aides ‚Äúreally gave away the store,‚ÄĚ Democratic leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) declared Dec. 18. Her report-card phrase ‚ÄĒ ‚Äúthey really gave away the store‚ÄĚ ‚ÄĒ doesn‚Äôt appear in Politico or TheHill, even by Dec. 22. Instead, Politico suggested that Ryan came out roughly even. ‚ÄúThe four leaders ‚ÄĒ Ryan, Pelosi (D-Calif.), Senate Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Senate Minority Leader Sen.

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is siding with many Democrats in criticizing conservative Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia over comments he made about African American student achievement during oral arguments earlier this week of the affirmative action case, Fisher v. University of Texas. "I thought his remarks were very tough,"Trump said of Scalia in an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper that aired Sunday. "They were very, very tough to a certain community," the Republican front-runner continued. "I thought it was very tough to the African-American community." Scalia's remarks, made Wednesday, drew accusations of racism from Democrats and liberal activists who...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday called on the House to take up legislation to ban guns from terrorist suspects, and said Congress needs to take this step to fulfill its duty to protect all Americans from violence. "We cannot remain silent," the California Democrat said at a hearing of the Democrats' Gun Violence Prevention Task Force. "For us to honor the responsibilities that we have to protect and defend the American people, we must not only have moments of silence, we must have days of action." "To start, we can and must bring up the bipartisan Deny Firearms...

    Troubling signs about the Affordable Care Act and the state of health care in the U.S. have bubbled up in the last few weeks. The administration's Obamacare enrollment projections for the coming year are down, the projected cost of premiums and out of pocket costs are up, nearly half of the insurance co-ops associated with the program are going out of business, and UnitedHealth Group, the nation's largest health insurer, said it may withdraw from the government marketplaces in 2017. Now comes a new survey by Gallup showing growing discontent with Obamacare and the U.S. health-care industry more generally after...
