    Former Irish republican fighter and asylum seeker Malachy McAllister will not be deported from the U.S., according to a Washington report. Kevin McAleenan, President Trump’s newly-appointed acting secretary of Homeland Security, has granted a request from Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to stay the deportation of McAllister, the Washington Examiner reports. On Thursday, Schumer had called McAleenan asking him to overrule ICE's decision not to grant McAllister political asylum...

    UPDATE: Statement from Congressman McAllister in regards to Adam Terry’s DWI arrest: “I’m disappointed in Adam. I do not condone his behavior, but I know he’s a good person and he’s worked hard for the people of Louisiana. Right now, he is at home with his family in the district and we want to make sure he gets the help he needs.” UPDATE: According to the arrest affidavit, Trooper Nicholas Gee said he smelled a 'very strong' odor commonly associated with an alcoholic beverage emitting from Terry. According to the affidavit, Terry told Trooper Gee he had not been drinking,...
  • New strategy: Get Democrats to vote in Republican primaries

    07/01/2014 9:48:45 PM PDT · by ObamahatesPACoal · 10 replies
    The come-from-behind victory of US Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) in last week’s Republican runoff was noted for Cochran’s outreach to Democratic voters, to African Americans in particular, an outreach which appears to have resulted in more than enough votes to account for the senior lawmaker’s narrow margin. In declining to concede, much less congratulate his opponent, challenger Chris McDaniel (R) blamed his loss on Democrats voting in the Republican runoff, and plans to look for alleged irregularities in the voting. (SNIP) Last year there were two other examples of Democratic voters playing a significant role in Republican races. In a...

    Rep. Vance McAllister, R-Swartz, will run for re-election. He told NOLA.com/Times-Picayune Monday that he'll leave it up to the voters to decide whether he stays or goes. He has scheduled a "special press conference" Monday in Monroe to formally announce his decision to run for re-election this fall in the 5th Congressional District. McAllister said he spent the weekend with his family making sure "they were on board," and that they are. He said he and they decided to leave it up to voters whether "he stays or goes." After surveillance video from last December was leaked in April showing...
  • Republicans Against Immigration Enforcement

    NRO ^ | Mark Krikorian
    The House adopted two amendments related to immigration yesterday that are so elementary they should have been no-brainers for any Republican. And yet, a handful of GOP members voted no. The first amendment requires an investigation into the reasons for the alarming criminal alien releases revealed by my colleague Jessica Vaughan. The vote was largely along party lines. It’s understandable, if lamentable, that most Democrats would vote no — they’re protecting an increasingly feckless and incompetent administration that is, alas, from their own party. Likewise, you can see why five Democrats would vote yes — they’re in tight reelection contests....

    Louisiana GOP Rep. Vance McAllister, caught on camera kissing a married female aide, said Monday he's failed his family, let down his district and doesn't intend to run for re-election this fall. In a statement, McAllister apologized for conduct he called a "personal failure," and said he spent the Easter congressional recess reconciling with his family. "I've failed those I care most about and let down the people who elected me to represent them," the freshman lawmaker said.

    Freshman GOP Rep. Vance McAllister (La.) - who ran as conservative Christian - has been caught on video in a romantic encounter with a woman believed to be on his congressional staff just before Christmas. The Ouachita Citizen, a newspaper based in West Monroe, La., posted a Dec. 23 surveillance video purportedly from inside McAllister’s district office in Monroe. The video shows McAllister kissing a woman identified by the newspaper as a congressional staffer for the first-term lawmaker. Federal payroll records show she is a part-time aide who began working for McAllister the day after he won his seat last...

    After being caught passionately kissing an aide on videotape, U.S. Rep. Vance McAllister, who ran as a devoted family man and Christian, late Monday afternoon asked forgiveness from his family and constituents McAllister did not answer his phone and his office did not answer its phone in Washington, D.C. and West Monroe. But in prepared statement released late Monday McAllister said: “There’s no doubt I’ve fallen short and I’m asking for forgiveness. I’m asking for forgiveness from God, my wife, my kids, my staff, and my constituents who elected me to serve. Trust is something I know has to be...

    An unknown political novice who has never visited Washington, D.C., won a special election for Louisiana's 5th District seat Saturday on the endorsement of the “Duck Dynasty” family and a promise to fix Obamacare. Vance McAllister beat establishment candidate Neil Riser, a state senator, in Saturday's runoff election created when former Rep. Rodney Alexander resigned on Sept. 26 to become secretary of the Louisiana Department of Veterans Affairs under Republican Governor Bobby Jindal.

    An interesting development in the Riser-McAllister race: McAllister, who has been infuriating Republican voters across the 5th District (which comprised 68 percent of the primary electorate and by all estimations will be an even larger share of the runoff electorate) by backing a Medicaid expansion, is now firing out robocalls with a rather controversial figure in state Democrat politics. Namely, former Congressman and failed 1999 Democrat gubernatorial candidate Cleo Fields – whose name came up as the recipient of a $25,000 payoff from disgraced former governor, federal inmate and failed reality TV star Edwin Edwards when the investigation of the...

    Vance McAlliser, one of two candidates in a runoff for Congressman from Louisiana’s Fifth District, said yesterday that he supported a “path to citizenship” for aliens that are in the United States illegally. Path to Citizenship is considered by most conservatives to be a politically correct term for amnesty for illegals. From the News Star: And on immigration reform, McAllister said he would support a path to citizenship for those immigrants already here illegally. “We have to secure the borders, but (citizenship) has to be attainable for those people already here,” he said. “It has to be a tough path,...

    In a letter Tuesday, Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley pressed Attorney General Eric Holder for details about a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives memorandum that indicates his Department of Justice may have tried to cover up the gunwalking tactics that were at the heart of Operation Fast and Furious. Gary Styers, an ATF special agent in the Lubbock, Texas field office, wrote what Grassley described as a “Fast and Furious memorandum” on Feb. 3, 2011. In it, Styers described how two investigators for Grassley’s Senate Judiciary Committee office had contacted him the day before about the Fast and...
