    Back when the Jeb Bush campaign for the Republican presidential nomination was still unofficial, the political press was busy churning out stories about how the former Florida governor was sewing up all the top talent in fundraising, strategy and policy. Bush, it seemed, was not only loading his team with top operatives, but like the Yankees in the George Steinbrenner years he was locking up extra talent just so nobody else could have it. In the rush, though, Bush apparently forgot to fill one vitally important position: Special Advisor for Saving Jeb Bush from Himself. The Bush campaign has, inexplicably,...

    On Friday, the Washington Post ran a story that can only show the credulousness of their political reporters… or the extent to which they are willing to pass on propaganda as news. If you recall, on Thursday, US News published a leaked donor presentation that showed the Bush campaign was in deep trouble in Iowa. This is the kind of thing that happens in floundering campaigns. Bad information starts leaking from every pore and seam. The Washington Post came to a different conclusion. They determined that the Bush campaign was using clever campaign jiu-jitsu: The “leak,” like so many “leaks,”...

    The Kentucky county clerk facing potentially stiff penalties for refusing to issue same-sex marriage licenses has been married four times, raising questions of hypocrisy and selective application of the Bible to her life. The marriages are documented in court records obtained by U.S. News, which show that Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis divorced three times, first in 1994, then 2006 and again in 2008. She gave birth to twins five months after divorcing her first husband. They were fathered by her third husband but adopted by her second. Davis worked at the clerk's office at the time of each divorce...

    The Supreme Courts extra-constitutional decision to make same-sex marriage legal across all 50 states is not without its unintended consequences. Take for example this interesting conundrum: There was a rally to be held over the July 4th holiday weekend in the parking lot of a Walmart in a small town in South Carolina, home of the now-nationally-despised Confederate flag, a rally to show support for said item. In a small parade of vehicles carrying the flag, some were hoisting a second. One of these other flags just happened to be Jesse Jacksons Rainbow Coalition flag. You know the one, the...

    WASHINGTON, DC: When it comes to increasing skilled workers on H-1B visas, one could say presidential candidate Ted Cruz is a bit of a black sheep amongst the GOP.The Republican presidential candidate wants to increase the H-1B visas by 500 percent from its 65,000 to 325,000. Cruz, who announced his run for the Oval office this morning, had made the proposition in 2013 as an amendment to the Senates comprehensive immigration bill.While the Senates Judiciary Committee torpedoed Cruzs amendment, they did approve an increase of 180,000 in the H-1B cap, but the House never acted on the legislation.Its not clear...

Tatiana -- who, like others interviewed for this story, asked that her last name not be used -- worked out of a 2,500-square-meter warehouse in the suburbs of St. Petersburg.

The drugs were found on the Ping May, which is a vessel operated by the Foremost Maritime Corporation, a company owned by Mitch McConnells in-laws, the Chao family. This connection is not only relevant because of the family connection, but also because the Chao family has often made large donations to McConnells campaigns.

    It takes about 10 minutes to walk from the Capitol to the federal courthouse just down the hill, but House Republicans havent managed to make that trip in the four months since they announced theyd be suing the president. House Speaker John Boehner came out swinging hard last June when he announced that his chamber would take President Barack Obama to court. The suit, charging that the president grossly exceeded his constitutional authority by failing to implement portions of the Obamacare law, was billed as an election-season rallying point for aggrieved Republicans. But days before the midterms the Houses legal...
  • King, Mowrer Spar Debate in Contentious Debate

    10/24/2014 6:33:11 PM PDT · by ObamahatesPACoal
    After watching the only debate between Fourth District Congressman Steve King and Democrat challenger Jim Mowrer, it is easy to see why King opted out of appearing with Mowrer at other venues, and even considered cancelling this one. Kings little-known opponent consistently attacked King during the hour-long event. (SNIP) He correctly pointed out that Mowrers son would be covered under Hawk-I, an insurance plan for children established by the Iowa Legislature when Steve King was a state senator. By all measures that I can uncover, Mr. Mowrers children would be qualified for Hawk-I, so that exists, along with the high...
  • Anatomy of a flip-flop: Dan Lipinski's path to immigration reform

    10/22/2014 4:35:25 PM PDT · by ObamahatesPACoal · 5 replies
    When it comes to liberal causes, U.S. Rep. Dan Lipinski usually is a stranger. The Southwest Sider is a Blue Dog Democrat in a party in which moderate conservatives like him have almost disappeared. Last year he was one of just seven House Democrats and the only one from Illinois to vote against re-electing Nancy Pelosi as House Democratic leader. He's joined with Republicans in a variety of causes and not too long ago was clearly pleased when his name was floated as a potential U.S. ambassador to the Vatican. (SNIP) Though Mr. Lipiinski kind of shrugs it...

  • Military immigrant program halted

    10/23/2014 5:27:42 PM PDT · by ObamahatesPACoal · 30 replies
    A popular military enlistment program for immigrants with specialized skills is now stuck in bureaucratic limbo after the Pentagon announced last month it would begin allowing some young immigrants without legal status into the program. Army officials confirmed Thursday that the program, called Military Accessions Vital to the National Interest, has been suspended while the service tries to finalize screening procedures for the immigrants who want to enlist. (SNIP) And a new requirement instituted in 2012 mandates that all MAVNI applicants go through a high-level security check, called a single-scope background investigation. But DACA recipients would not be able...
  • Coakley struggling to solidify her base

    10/22/2014 9:54:32 PM PDT · by ObamahatesPACoal · 16 replies
    Attorney General Martha Coakley is locked in a dead heat for governor with Republican Charlie Baker because shes struggling to win over the two demographic groups she needs most. Partisan Democrats and women voters formed the backbone of the recent Democratic victories in Massachusetts. But three weeks before Election Day, Coakley is still struggling to close the sale with the states Democratic base. Democrats have established a winning formula in recent contests: Roll up big margins with women voters, turn out the party faithful and capture just enough independent voters to allow Democrats built-in numerical advantage to overwhelm Republicans. This...
