  • Trump Pentagon nominee on Texas shooting: It's 'insane' that civilians can buy 'assault' rifles

    President Trump’s pick to head up the military health system lunged into the U.S. gun debate Tuesday during a Senate hearing, saying laws allowing civilians to purchase long guns like the Texas church shooter are “insane.” Dean Winslow, a professor at Stanford University, offered up the assessment, seemingly unprompted, amid questions from Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., about the military’s treatment of domestic violence convictions during his nomination hearing to be assistant secretary of defense for health affairs. Shaheen asked specifically whether Winslow believed a person such as Devin Patrick Kelley, who was jailed by the military for assaulting his wife...
  • Gregg Jarrett: Hillary Clinton's scheme in 'rigging' the nomination may have been criminal

    Hillary Clinton has spent a year crying about how the presidency was stolen from her. Turns out, she stole the Democratic nomination from Bernie Sanders. The stunning revelation from former Democratic National Committee interim chairperson Donna Brazile that Clinton secretly rigged the primary process by commandeering the DNC should come as no surprise to anyone. Clinton is nothing, if not unethical and corrupt. She always has been. This is precisely why pre-election polls consistently showed that a majority of Americans found her dishonest and untrustworthy. The critical question now is whether she committed crimes in her theft of the nomination....
  • Sens. Feinstein and Durbin Are Fooling No One

    It's rich that rule of law-scoffing Democratic Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Dick Durbin grilled one of President Trump's judicial nominees, law professor Amy Coney Barrett, for placing her religious beliefs above the law. During Barrett's appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, Durbin asked her, "Do you consider yourself an orthodox Catholic?" Apparently, Durbin thought he had Barrett dead to rights because of assertions she made in a law review article she co-wrote with her law professor in 1998 as a third-year student at Notre Dame Law School. In the article, "Catholic Judges in Capital Cases," the authors discussed...

    Senate Democrats came dangerously close to crossing a constitutional line regarding religious faith during an inquisition of one of President Trump's nominees for the federal court. Senators grilled federal judicial nominee Amy Barrett -- demanding to know how her faith would influence her decisions from the bench. Barrett is a professor at Notre Dame Law School and a devout Catholic. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), expressed grave concerns that Barrett is a Catholic in good standing. "When you read your speeches, the conclusion one draws is that the dogma lives loudly within you, and that's of concern when you come to...

    President Trump announced more than three dozen appointments Friday night for key administration positions. The president intends to nominate Richard Grenell to serve as the next U.S. ambassador to Germany. Grenell served in former President George W. Bush’s administration as a spokesman for the U.S. mission to the United Nations.“For nearly two decades, he has served as the primary communications adviser for public officials at the local, state, Federal, and international levels, as well as for a Fortune 200 ranked company,” the White House statement said. “Mr. Grenell is the longest serving United States spokesman at the United Nations (2001-2008) having...

    With much of the media is fixated on Russia, Comey, and potential obstruction, other goings-on inside the Beltway are getting relatively scant attention.  The White House is ramping up its focus on rebuilding US infrastructure (a common Trump campaign refrain), Republican Senators may be forging ahead with some progress on desperately-needed reforms to Obamacare's failing status quo, and the president has unveiled another substantial roster of nominees to fill federal court vacancies.  Three names on the list are slated to serve on important and influent circuit courts of appeal -- including a woman Trump has tapped to assume Supreme Court...

    With the approach of a new baseball season the Trump administration should consider how far it is willing to go to get Neil Gorsuch on the Court. It is critical to get him approved before many more cases are argued. It should be obvious that the Trump presidency is undergoing numerous attacks in the Whack Job Judiciary. Everything it tries to do will be challenged in the courts. One of the strongest steps the Republican Senators could take would be to suspend or eliminate the Filibuster Rule. This has good arguments for it and good arguments against it. But there...

    As the Senate Judiciary Committee was hearing from witnesses for and against Judge Neil Gorsuch, his Supreme Court nomination was delivered a critical blow: Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) said he would join with other Democrats in filibustering Gorsuch — a move that would require at least 60 senators to vote to end debate on the nomination.

    Senator Schumer’s publicity-driven obstruction of the Supreme Court nomination process is over before it’s begun Earlier this month, Democratic Minority Leader Chuck Schumer went to work yet again to impede Judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court — and he seems certain to again needle the nominee when his confirmation hearing begins March 20. Sen. Schumer, in his attempt to discredit Judge Gorsuch’s judicial independence, remarked that Gorsuch “avoided answers like the plague” after the nominee endured what must have been a vexing onslaught of pervasive and politically charged questions.
  • Trump’s pick for ambassador to Israel unqualified, say 5 former envoys

    02/16/2017 8:23:58 AM PST · by Eleutheria5 · 57 replies
    Five former US ambassadors to Israel claimed Wednesday that President Donald Trump’s choice for the position is unqualified, and they are urging senators to carefully consider the nomination. In a letter sent to members of the Foreign Relations Committee, the former diplomats said David Friedman has staked out “extreme, radical positions” and has derided the two-state solution as an “illusory” fix for a non-existent problem. “We believe the committee should satisfy itself that Mr. Friedman has the balance and the temperament required to represent the United States as ambassador to Israel,” they wrote. The committee is scheduled to meet Thursday...

Tom Price (R-Ga.) as secretary of Health and Human Services.

    Diehard supporters of Sen. Bernard Sanders stormed media tents and staged a sit-in Tuesday night minutes after Hillary Clinton officially claimed the party’s presidential nomination, injecting another round of drama into the convention and pouring cold water on claims Democrats are fully uniting behind their White House nominee. Hundreds of Sanders backers, most carrying signs backing their candidate, conducted what seemed to be a well-coordinated march from the Wells Fargo Center to the media tents just outside the arena. They said that party officials were trying to confiscate Sanders signs inside Wells Fargo

    Truncated title. Full title: EXCLUSIVE: Bernie Delegates Plot Commotion on the Convention Floor to Protest Hillary-Kaine and Challenge Kaine as Running Mate! Disenfranchised Bernie Sanders delegates are talking intensely behind the scenes about how to disrupt the Democratic National Convention to protest the Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine ticket. Breitbart News has learned that some groups of delegates are considering nominating a vice presidential challenger to Clinton’s pick Tim Kaine. Others are discussing a potential walkout by Sanders delegates. But Sanders’ speech Monday afternoon urging people to vote for Clinton seems to have damaged the plans, prompting some pro-Bernie delegates...
