    Conservative Millennial Women Are Here For Female Empowerment—Just Don't Call Them Feminists Recently I spent two days at the hub of conservatism in Washington, D.C. Nope, not the White House, but the Heritage Foundation for the Network of Enlightened Women’s National Conference—also known as NeW—where a group of college-aged conservative females gathered to discuss and learn about Republican policy and leadership. And yes, Kellyanne Conway was there. As a 24-year-old liberal woman who cried watching Hillary Clinton lose the election live at New York’s Javits Center, this wasn’t a room I ever thought I’d find myself in, and my preconceived...
  • Freedom Caucus seeks to force ObamaCare repeal vote

    The Hill ^ | 8-11-17 | Peter Sullivan
    The conservative House Freedom Caucus on Friday is planning a move to try and force a vote on an ObamaCare repeal bill. A spokeswoman for the group said members plan to file a "discharge petition," which would force a vote on a repeal bill if it gets signatures from a majority of the House. The move is usually used to go around leadership and try to bring up a measure to the floor for a vote. The plan comes as the Freedom Caucus, and some other Republicans, are pushing to keep the repeal effort alive, despite the Senate's failed vote...
  • IOWA DEMOCRATS WIN SPECIAL ELECTION IN TRUMP +22 DISTRICT

    08/09/2017 7:03:34 AM PDT · by SoFloFreeper · 59 replies
    Iowa Democrats pulled off an impressive and important victory in a Southeast Iowa special election this evening, boosting the party’s hopes that 2018 could be a bounce-back year. Democratic veterinarian Phil Miller of Fairfield comfortably defeated Republican farmer Travis Harris of Davis County, 4,021 to 3,324 (about 55% to 45%), thanks largely to a massive victory in his hometown of Jefferson County. That means Democrats will hold on to a key rural swing district that Donald Trump won in November by 22 points.... Miller was about as ideal of a candidate as you could hope for in this race: a...

    A D.C. suburb in Maryland is considering a plan that would give undocumented immigrants the right to vote, making their city the largest in the Old Line State to do so. The city, which is home of the University of Maryland’s main campus and nearly 30,000 residents, is weighing approval of the new measure to let noncitizens cast ballots for mayor and City Council, The Baltimore Sun reported Sunday.
  • OBAMASURANCE, A LEAK IN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY’S ARK? [Reason for optimism]

    07/28/2017 1:07:32 PM PDT · by SoFloFreeper · 4 replies
    Had they called it “Obamasurance”, which it is, instead of Obamacare, which it never has been, it may never have become law in the first place. And voters today would be fully aware of the type of end run the Republicans are trying to employ to save that which is most profitable to them and nothing else. With Democrats the name they put on legislation is never accidental. “Affordable”? “Care”? Right. Under FDR they named “Social Security” and it really wasn’t. Under LBJ they gave us “Medicare”, and that wasn’t either. “Civil Rights” is one of the most profaned terms...

    Breitbart ^ | 07/19/17 | Sean Moran
    Rep. Tom Garret (R-VA), along with a dozen Freedom Caucus members, announced his intent to file a discharge petition that would put a clean repeal of Obamacare before the House. The House Freedom Caucus repeatedly argued that the best path to repealing Obamacare revolves around a simple repeal of Obamacare and then replacing the Affordable Care Act with a free-market alternative. Congress passed a clean repeal bill of Obamacare in 2015 only to have it vetoed by President Obama. Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), a former chairman of the Freedom Caucus, reintroduced the same legislation in 2017. However, Congress has not...

    For years, Black people have delivered our vote to Democrats. Many Democrats wouldn’t have won without our vote. Now some Black people, and other people of color, have become discouraged because no matter the votes we deliver, we are taken for granted. Once elected, many forget our efforts on their behalf. Until President Barack Obama ran for office, I voted for Democrats, but I’d lost my enthusiasm for my Party. My enthusiasm returned full force in 2008 and 2012. By 2016, I still enthusiastically supported Secretary Hillary Clinton. I did so because she was a Democrat, but also because she...

    Democratic state officials already are refusing to cooperate with the voter fraud investigation ordered by President Trump, saying they will not hand over the extensive “voter roll data” the commission is seeking. The response comes after Kris Kobach, the Kansas secretary of state serving as vice chair of the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, wrote to all 50 states this week asking for their input as well as voter registration data. “I have no intention of honoring this request. Virginia conducts fair, honest, and democratic elections, and there is no evidence of significant voter fraud in Virginia,” Virginia Democratic...

    One By One, States Are Blocking Pence’s Voter Suppression Scheme State officials from Virginia, California and Kentucky are refusing to give over voter information to Vice President Pence’s commission on election integrity. President Trump signed an executive order last May creating the commission, saying that it will “promote fair and honest federal elections” after claiming that millions of undocumented immigrants had somehow managed to vote illegally for Hillary Clinton. No evidence for this claim has ever been offered. The commission, led by Pence, sent letters today requesting all 50 states to supply voters’ names, birthdays, the last four digits of...

    Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman who has a $7.5 Million bounty on his head and runs the Sinaloa cartel reportedly has a U.S. driver’s license issued in California. According to the investigative report, “The Hunt for El Chapo Guzman, Mexico’s Most Elusive Drug Lord,” by the Univision network, Guzman obtained a driver’s license under the alias of Max Aragon in 1988. He obtained the license even though he was a wanted man by the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and a Mexican national. The driver’s license information is part of a confidential file the DEA keeps on El Chapo. The year-long investigative...

    ....The California Democrat, sworn into office four months ago, insists she’s not thinking about a run for president. Her inner circle forcefully tries to tamp down 2020 speculation – after all, there is no upside to being seen as a new senator focused more on national political ambition than on California. But the speculation is not going away, not with the absence of a clear Democratic presidential frontrunner and the party desperately in search and in need of a new generation of leadership.

    In a possible breakthrough for U.S. Republicans' effort to roll back Obamacare, the House of Representatives plans to hold a vote Thursday on compromise legislation, potentially ending a logjam that has delayed advancing President Donald Trump's campaign promise to repeal the law. The decision to hold a vote comes after key moderate lawmakers met with Trump on Wednesday and said a revised bill might win approval as conservatives voiced no objections. House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy said Republican leadership is confident there is enough support for the bill to pass.

    Former U.S. Rep.
