  • 'No better friend' Republican Representative Mark Meadows 'heartbroken' by death of Elijah Cummings

    Washington Examiner ^ | Oct 2019 | Daniel Chaitin
    Cummings was a liberal powerhouse from Maryland, while Meadows, 60, is a conservative who hails from North Carolina. The two men had little in common, but they shared a uniquely strong friendship on Capitol Hill. The bond was put on display at critical moments this year. During a dramatic House Oversight Committee hearing in February, in which President Trump's former fixer Michael Cohen was providing testimony, Cummings came to the defense of Meadows, who was accused of a "racist act" by Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib when he brought up Lynne Patton, a black woman who is a longtime friend of...

    On Friday’s episode of “The View,” Sen. Rand Paul sparred with Ana Navarro, a regular contributor to the show, about the nature of socialism in Venezuela. “You talk about Venezuela in your new book,” Navarro said, “I get a lot of political ads from the Republican Party. Donald Trump has tweeted this. Many have tweeted this. If you vote for Democrats, they will turn the United States into Venezuela. Do you think that’s a fair statement to make?”

    Congressman Chris Collins will resign from Congress according to a source. The congressman is set to appear in federal court on Tuesday where he will change his plea related his insider trading case. A hearing on the matter is scheduled for Tuesday afternoon at 3:00. The Associated Press reported that he is expected to plead guilty. Collins had previously entered a not guilty plea, and had said as recently as this summer that he maintained his innocence and had no intention of taking a plea deal. "I've said all along that I'm not doing anything to get a plea deal....

  • Why did we elect corruptible Republican and Democratic representatives?

    Why did we elect corruptible Republican and Democratic representatives? The question implies that the Republican and Democratic Political Parties are merely two cheeks of the same corrupted ass. The root of the answer lies in this adage; a candidate who advocates robbing Peter to pay Paul will very likely gain Paul's support. We elected the Republican and Democratic representatives who oppose President Trump. Why do they oppose President Trump? Is it because of his policies? Is it his demeanor? Is it that he not a seasoned politician, which is why I voted for him? I think exposing President Obama’s inept...

    NEW LONDON, N.C. — The North Stanly High School cheerleading squad has been placed on probation by the N.C. High School Athletic Association after members of the team held up a Trump 2020 sign at a school event last week, and 8th District Congressman Richard Hudson is calling foul. Hudson, a Republican, sent a letter to NCHSAA Commissioner Que Tucker on Tuesday questioning why the the association placed the cheerleading squad on probation. "As the representative of Stanly County, I am appalled these students are being punished for exercising their First Amendment right to free speech," Hudson said in the...

    Elizabeth Warren is best known as a liberal firebrand, but the 2020 Democrat was a registered Republican well into her 40s. The Massachusetts senator's affiliation with the GOP until 1996 when she was 47, documented by Pennsylvania and Massachusetts voting records, was dredged up this week by actress and Bernie Sanders fan Susan Sarandon. The film and small-screen star alluded to the Massachusetts senator's prior party allegiance while introducing Sanders in Iowa, despite the Vermont senator's campaign urging surrogates not to criticize fellow presidential candidates. “He is not someone who used to be a Republican,” Sarandon said of the socialist,...

    Sunday on MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin called for the shunning and shaming of the supporters of President Donald Trump, which she argued was part of a plan to “burn down” the GOP and start from new. “It’s not only that Trump has to lose, but that all his enablers have to lose,” she said. “We have to collectively, in essence, burn down the Republican Party. We have to level them because if there are survivors — if there are people who weather this storm, they will do it again. They will take this as confirmation that,...

    There aren’t a whole lot of Republicans in Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Queens and Bronx district, but the few there are all seem to want to run against the firebrand progressive congresswoman. Seven Republicans have already filed with the Federal Election Commission to run for the seat next year, and at least one more is publicly considering a run. Any Republican nominee will face distinctly long odds to unseat one of the highest profile members of Congress in an overwhelmingly Democratic district, but that has not stopped would-be challengers from lining up for the chance to take her on. And whoever...

    Meet Bronx resident John Cummings, a Republican and former Harbor Unit cop-turned-high school civics teacher who is mounting a long-shot bid to topple Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez next year.“But to just come from the outside and take somebody on is really difficult,” Cummings told The Post in an exclusive interview.The one-time bartender Ocasio-Cortez inspired him to run — for her 14th congressional district seat.“It was pointed out to me by my students that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez pretty much made my excuse– and I’ll use their quotes– ‘a lame one,’” he said.So the 59-year-old Saint Raymond High School instructor plans to file paperwork with...

    Have the present-day progressives who say they admire him ever read him? The American Left has an abiding attachment to Theodore Roosevelt. Everyone from MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews to former Harvard University Press editor-in-chief Aida D. Donald keeps Roosevelt on hand as a stand-in example of a “good Republican” — invoked, perhaps, when the name of Abraham Lincoln has been outworn, and a new exemplar of “acceptable” Republicanism is needed. A “trans-partisan” figure and an original “progressive,” Roosevelt represents what the GOP could have been. But on the social issues that loom so large in the liberal Democratic mind, just...

    A call to ban the Confederate Flag due to its association with slavery is akin to banning the Democrat Party's Donkey and Islam's Crescent, as both of those institutions were involved in the enslavement of Africans. The Democrat Party defended the right to own slaves, as the Party's founder, Andrew Jackson owned slaves. Beginning in colonial times, approximately 350,000 African slaves were brought to America, growing to number nearly 4 million slaves prior to the Civil War. Slaves were purchased at Muslim slave markets. Islam defended the right to own slaves, as its founder, Mohammed, owned slaves. Beginning in 622...
  • How Roy Moore Could Actually Win Alabama’s Republican Senate Primary

    FiveThirtyEight ^ | Live Blog: Women’s World Cup Jun. 20, 2019 | Geoffrey Skelley
    A large primary field may fragment the vote, making it unlikely that a candidate could win a majority and avoid a runoff and making it easier for Moore to advance to a runoff with only the support of his base. The point is that Moore does have a path — especially a path to a primary runoff if there’s a crowded GOP field. And if he does get there, he would be only one step away from a rematch with Jones. Moore would still have a decent chance of winning a general election in conservative Alabama, and that is surely...

    The Week ^ | June 13, 2019 | Shikha Dalmia
    Both my native country, India, and my adopted country, America, are liberal democracies that are right now in the thrall of right-wing populist demagogues -- Prime Minister Narendra Modi in India's case and President Donald Trump in America's. Few would deny that between the two, Trump is the crazier one -- a showboat with impulse control issues. Modi, by contrast, a humble tea stall owner once, is a veritable picture of discipline and restraint. Yet Modi, who got re-elected by a landslide last month, is potentially more dangerous because Indian democracy lacks strong institutional checks on his illiberal ambitions. In...

    If conservatives think dealing with Google is hard from the outside, they should try coping with its “outrage mobs and witch hunts” from the inside, a Google employee writes in an expansive indictment of the tech giant’s corporate culture. Mike Wacker, a Google software engineer and self-identified Republican, took to Medium on Tuesday and posted an expansive and detailed picture of the troubles facing a conservative trying to survive life inside Google. The post does more than give a glimpse into a hostile corporate culture. Wacker drew a connection between the hostility to conservatives he has experienced to the extensive...

    Newly-elected Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) has unveiled an excellent Tucker Carlson-esque populist-nationalist platform to move the GOP beyond boomer conservatism. This is the best vision I've seen since Steve Bannon's 2016 platform for Trump (which Trump abandoned for boomer conservatism).THE BIG IDEA: Josh Hawley, the youngest member of the Senate, was born on Dec. 31, 1979 -- the final day of a sclerotic decade. The freshman Republican from Missouri argues that the GOP must now move away from the shibboleths of his childhood to become the party that stands in unflinching opposition to elites. "It's not 1980 anymore. We've got...

    A Bronx Republican who blames Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for scuttling the Amazon deal says she plans to run against the Democrat next year as a pro-jobs candidate. “She chose ideology over paychecks,” said Ruth Papazian, noting that Amazon vowed to create 25,000 jobs before pulling out of its deal to open a campus in Queens. “People need jobs. We don’t have economic diversity in the outer boroughs.” Papazian, 61, a lifelong Bronx resident and medical journalist, has met with GOP officials who have encouraged her to enter what would be an uphill race. A daughter of Egyptian immigrants, Papazian said...

    All of a sudden, its popular to be progressive. The unexpectedly competitive Democratic primary of 2016, pitting Hillary Clinton against Bernie Sanders, quickly became a battle of "progressives" versus "progressives who get things done." And in the Democrats search for identity following Clintons soul-crushing general election loss to Donald Trump, Democratic candidates at all levels throughout the 2018 election cycle wore the progressive badge, even if their definition of "progressive" was sometimes rather ambiguous. Now, theres a Democratic majority in Congress, and along with it a diverse class of new lawmakers proposing an agenda which is resolutely radical by the...
