  • Judicial Watch Asks Trump Administration to End Congressional Obamacare Exemption

    Judicial Watch ^ | JUNE 23, 2017
    Judicial Watch requested the Trump administration stop members of Congress and their staff from unlawfully purchasing, with taxpayer subsidies, health insurance through the District of Columbia’s small business exchange. ... Because the ACA limits the purchase of insurance on a small business exchange to employees of small businesses – and Congress is not a small business – the ACA unequivocally requires that certain members of Congress and congressional employees purchase insurance on an individual exchange created either by their state of residence (or by the District, if they are a D.C. resident) or by the federal government for that state....

    A new poll shows Kelli Ward, the conservative Pro-Trump challenger surging against Senator Jeff Flake.Senator Flake refused to support Trump for president in 2016, Flake instead voted for independent spoiler Evan McMullin and even signaled tacit support for Tim Kaine as Vice President. Trying to count the ways I hate @timkaine. Drawing a blank. Congrats to a good man and a good friend.— Jeff Flake (@JeffFlake) July 23, 2016Flake spent 2016 openly mocking Trump and encouraging Republicans not to endorse the president.

During the campaign, Fusion GPS contracted former MI-6 agent Christopher Steele to look into rumors about Trump's financial and social connections in Russia.

    Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke’s path to the GOP nomination for the United States Senate in Wisconsin just got a whole lot easier, and conservatives across the nation are celebrating. Popular conservative Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch announced that she will NOT challenge Sheriff Clarke for the GOP nomination next year. On the heels of Kleefisch’s announcement, millionairess Nicole Schneider also put an end to speculation that she might challenge Sheriff Clarke by leaking the classic line that she wanted “to spend more time with her family.” Schneider was not regarded as a serious candidate beyond the fact that her family’s trucking...

    The news that Southern-fried rock/rapper Kid Rock will be running for some timeserving Dem hack’s Senate seat in Michigan should make every normal American smile and spill a 40 to his homies. The future Senator Rock deserves your eager support for two critical reasons: First, it will drive the liberals insane. Second, it will make George Will and the rest of Team Fredocon soil themselves.“Kid Rock? Oh, well I never!” You simpering sissies.

He clearly was a hurting guy," Graham told CNN. "I think they relieved the pressure, and he sounded like the old John McCain, dying to get back and talking about driving across the country. I said, 'No.' "

    Hoping to avoid a humiliating political defeat, President Trump on Wednesday demanded that Republican senators resume their efforts to approve a plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, insisting that lawmakers are “very close.” A day after the GOP strategy to roll back the ACA appeared dead, Trump invited Republican senators to lunch at the White House and challenged them to work out an agreement even if it means remaining in Washington through their summer recess next month. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) had previously announced that the recess would be delayed by two weeks.

Now Democrat Deedra Abboud is getting support from what might seem to be an unlikely place: Republican Sen. Jeff Flake, the man whose job she wants. Abboud, an attorney and activist, is believed to be the first Muslim statewide candidate in Arizona history.

    Democratic dreams of seizing Congress appear to be exactly that Some Democrats dream of recapturing control of Congress in 2018 and impeaching Donald Trump, but the odds are stacked against them despite the president’s early troubles and historically low approval ratings. Seizing the House of Representatives, where Republicans hold a 46-seat advantage, would be tough nut to crack. Yet Democrats might run into a brick wall in their bid to win back the Senate even though Republicans only hold a slender 52-48 edge. How come? An extremely unfavorable Senate map. Of the 33 senators up for reelection in a year...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.), one of the Senate's fiercest Wall Street critics, attended a Democratic donor retreat over the weekend hosted by former UBS bank executive Robert Wolf, who last year lashed out against politicians that target Wall Street for political gain. Wolf hosted Warren as part of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee's annual donor retreat in Martha's Vineyard. He wrote on Twitter that he was "honored" to host Warren, who was joined by other Democratic senators at the fundraiser. Wolf, a financial backer and friend of former President Barack Obama, a Clinton Foundation donor, and a co-chair for...

    It is "pretty clear there are not 50 Republicans at the moment for a replacement," McConnell said at a news conference following an all-GOP Senate lunch. But he still insisted that there would be a repeal-only vote "in the very near future." While the Kentucky Republican did not specify when that vote would be, Senate GOP whip John Cornyn told reporters afterward that the it would likely happen some time this week.

    Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) says she will not support moving forward with a plan to repeal ObamaCare with a delayed replacement, effectively killing the latest legislative gambit from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). With Murkowski's defection, GOP leaders do not have the votes to move forward to an ObamaCare repeal bill that passed the Senate in 2015, but was vetoed by then-President Obama. Earlier Tuesday, Sens. Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) also said they will not support moving to the repeal-only bill. Republicans can only afford two defections if Vice President Pence breaks a tie.

Deciding votes: Senator Jenner of California and Senator Rock of Michigan.I can’t decide if Jenner would be better off running for the House than for Senate or if a statewide run is realistically her only play. Fun fact: In the past 25 years, only one Republican has topped so much as 43 percent in a Senate race in California. That was Arianna Huffington’s husband, Michael, who in 1994 spent the most money on a non-presidential race in American...
