    HACKETTSTOWN, N.J. — The Republican candidate for governor of New Jersey sat on a plush beige couch in the Republican mayor’s condo, surrounded by Republican county officials and politicians, and offered up her plan to stem what is perhaps the state’s most daunting challenge — its deepening property tax crisis. She adopted it, she said, from an unexpected source. “This is a page out of the Democratic playbook, it really is,” Kim Guadagno, the lieutenant governor said, noting that the plan came from a proposal in deep-blue Illinois. With Republicans controlling the White House, both chambers of Congress and having...

    Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain in 2012 turned over nearly $9 million in unspent funds from his failed 2008 presidential campaign to a new foundation bearing his name, the McCain Institute for International Leadership. The institute is intended to serve as a “legacy” for McCain and “is dedicated to advancing human rights, dignity, democracy and freedom.” It is a tax-exempt non-profit foundation with assets valued at $8.1 million and associated with Arizona State University. Conservative and liberal critics, however, believe the institute constitutes a major conflict of interest for McCain, The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group has learned. McCain,...

    Rep. Mark Sanford said Thursday that President Trump was “partially” to blame for some of the hostility in the country that led to the shooting of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and others this week. “I would argue the president has unleashed, partially, again not in anyway totally, but partially to blame for the demons that have been unleashed,” Mr. Sanford, South Carolina Republican, said on MSNBC.

    MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Gov. Scott Walker said Monday that when President Donald Trump comes to Wisconsin, he will see that people outside of Washington "still like his policies." Walker spoke on the Mike Gallagher radio show about a fundraiser Trump is hosting for Walker in Milwaukee on Tuesday night. Trump is also touring a technical college with Walker in the Milwaukee area. The fundraiser comes as Walker prepares for an expected re-election run in 2018. Walker didn't initially endorse Trump, but came around after he secured the Republican nomination. Trump carried Wisconsin by less than a percentage point.....

    GOP Rep. Martha McSally (Ariz.) recently voiced concerns about Republicans losing the House to Democrats due to controversy surrounding President Trump's administration, according to a report from Tuscon Weekly. In a private speech to the Arizona Bankers Association last week, McSally fretted that Trump's tweets are creating "distractions" that "it's basically being taken out on me." "Any Republican member of Congress, you are going down with the ship," McSally said, according to the report. "And we're going to hand the gavel to Pelosi in 2018, they only need 23 seats and the path to that gavel being handed over is...

    Watching this reminds me that the day is coming, maybe sooner than we think, when Democrats will be trolling the new Republican president by comparing him unfavorably to Trump. Which reminds me that the day is also coming when we on the right will be trolling a new Democratic president by comparing him unfavorably to — gasp — Barack Obama.

    President Donald Trump has failed at getting the proper message out during his time as a politician and is "sabotaging his own agenda," political analyst Karl Rove wrote in an opinion piece. Rove, who worked in the White House under former President George W. Bush, argued in The Wall Street Journal that Trump's Twitter habit is causing a lot of problems for him. "Mr. Trump has figured out how to tweet his way around the mainstream media," Rove wrote. "Yet by disregarding basic fact checking, he is deepening the already considerable doubts Americans have about his competence and trustworthiness."

The speaker lineup for what is traditionally a gathering of Romney allies is packed with high-profile Republicans, among them House Speaker Paul Ryan and Sens. Lindsey Graham and John McCain.

    Senators went into a recess skeptical over whether they could agree to legislation repealing and replacing ObamaCare. They will return on Monday more doubtful than ever. Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.), one of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-Ky.) most loyal allies, said Thursday that it’s “unlikely” the GOP will get a healthcare deal. “I don’t see a comprehensive healthcare plan this year,” he told a local news station. Senate Republicans hoped to have a draft bill this week, but it now looks like there will at best be an outline.

    Former House Speaker John Boehner said earlier this week that Donald Trump’s presidency has been “a complete disaster” thus far and that the billionaire-turned-commander-in-chief is still learning on the job. “Everything else he’s done [in office] has been a complete disaster,” Boehner said during a question-and-answer session at a conference in Houston on Wednesday. “He’s still learning how to be president.” ~snip~ He seemed content with his life as a retired politician and was quick to shoot down any talk of a future presidential bid. “I wake up every day, drink my morning coffee and say hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah,” Boehner...

    The top Republican in the Senate on Tuesday rejected President Donald Trump's suggestion that his party change the chamber's rules to undercut the ability of Democrats to block legislation with filibusters. "There is an overwhelming majority on a bipartisan basis that is not interested in changing the way the Senate operates on the legislative calendar," Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters.

    John Kasich believes in a path, in a purpose set from above. He just can’t figure out what this path or purpose is supposed to be. A year after losing his Republican primary campaign that never got off the ground, 100 days into Donald Trump’s presidency, the Ohio governor doesn’t quite know where he’s headed, or where the Republican Party is headed either.

    Once again, Congressional Republicans delivered a swift kick to the crotch of their voters, in the form of their proposed budget this week. Congressional big spenders reached a deal Sunday, with a bill over 1600 pages in length. Almost as long as Obamacare. But at least it’s a budget. Last year Congress had no budget, instead papering over their fiscal irresponsibility via temporary spending measures. Since this budget is proposed by the Republican Congress, with the expectation of the Republican President signing it into law, one would reasonably expect that the budget represents Republican priorities. Funding programs promoted on the...

    Note: When things are so bad that the establishment RINOs, who made caving on spending bills an art form, are admitting the Republican Party got rolled by Democrats on a spending bill, something really needs to change. RINO Senator Lindsey Graham, CR 33%, appearing on CNN Tuesday morning with Kate Bolduan, said that the GOP got their clocks cleaned by Democrats in negotiating the temporary spending bill, the so-called “Omnibus” that avoids a temporary government shutdown until September when a new budget is promised. “I don’t know if I’m going to vote for the bill they’re going to present to...

    President Trump is ready to give up on Congress — or maybe he already has. And we can totally see why he wants to just shut it down and start all over again. Democrats are united against him, Republicans seem hopelessly divided, and Trump's top priorities are no closer to being law than when he was running for president. To wit: There's no question Democrats won this week's budget showdown, and it was mostly Trump's priorities that got left on the cutting floor when congressional leaders were making a deal. House Speaker Paul Ryan said he shared President Trump’s “frustration,”...
  • McCain calls Trump’s comments about dictators ‘disturbing’

    Sen. John McCain called President Trump’s praise of dictators around the world “disturbing” on Tuesday. “It’s very distributing. It’s disturbing because we’re proud Republicans, and we stand for human rights,” Mr. McCain told MSNBC. The Arizona Republican said he is still supportive of Mr. Trump’s military and foreign policy decisions and has confidence in the team of national security advisers, despite the president’s recent comments. “When the president does his job such as the cruise missile strike, such as selecting a national security team that is the strongest that I’ve seen, such as many of the actual actions he has...

    From day one, President Trump has made it clear that securing the border is a top national priority. Republicans in Congress couldn’t agree more. That’s why this week, Congress will vote for the biggest increase in border security funding in a long time. Here’s what that means: More boots on the ground - Customs and Border Protection will see $12.2 billion in funding—$911 million above last fiscal year—which means more agents, enhanced technology, and better tools to stem the flow of illegal activities across our border, as President Trump requested in his own budget amendment. The end of “catch and...
