  • Russia, China ‘Plotting Behind The Scenes’ Ahead Of Ukraine Invasion: Congressman

    Moscow and Beijing have been keeping each other abreast of their plans in the leadup to the Ukraine attack, according to two lawmakers. “I think they have coordinated and I think that China is in a better position letting Russia go first, to evaluate,” Rep. Ken Buck (R-Colo.) told EpochTV’s “China Insider” program at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Feb. 25. By watching the world’s reaction on Ukraine, China is trying to gauge its next steps on Taiwan, the self-ruled island that the Chinese Communist Party claims as its own territory and long planned to bring under its...

    Washington (CNN)More than 200 members of Congress are urging the Supreme Court to reconsider -- if not overrule -- the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, which legalized abortion nationwide. Thirty-nine Republican senators and 168 members of the House of Representatives, almost all of them Republicans, signed a so-called "friend of the court" brief filed on Thursday by the national anti-abortion group Americans United for Life in connection with a challenge to a Louisiana abortion access law due to be heard in March. The signers include Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas, Chuck Grassley of Iowa, Mike Lee and Mitt Romney...
  • Rep. Chabot Didn't Have Much to Ask Mueller...But He Had Plenty to Say to His Dem Colleagues

    What exactly were Democrats hoping to gain at Wednesday's hearings with former special counsel Robert Mueller? They already have his 448-page report. He's already given a public statement about his conclusions. He's already said, matter-of-factly, that the Trump campaign did not collude with Russia to win the 2016 election. Yet, with a series of subpoenas, Democrats have dragged Mueller to Capitol Hill to try and squeeze some new information out of him that will incriminate President Trump. And their Republican colleagues are sick of it. Rep. Steve Chabot (R-OH) didn't have many questions for the witness because, again, he already...
  • Ohio Race Turns Ugly: Democrat Congressional candidate reported unknowns Stalking Fiancée

    Democrat Aftab Pureval, Hamilton County clerk of courts, is challenging Rep. Steve Chabot (R-Ohio) in Ohio’s 1st district. Aftab Pureval (half American Indian, half Tibetan), a Democratic House candidate in Ohio, reported to police on Monday the “menacing by stalking” of his fiancée, Whitney Whitis, outside her Cincinnati home. Since Jan. 28, two days before Pureval formally announced his run, “unknown suspects” have been “sitting outside the victim’s house at all hours of the day, attempting to photograph victim, and have come onto the victim’s property banging loudly on the door, yelling at the victim and attempting to photograph through...

    Democrats are now 'soft favorites' to take the House, according to an analysis by University of Virginia political scientist Larry Sabato and his team. The latest periodic installment of Sabato's 'Crystal Ball' newsletter handicapping congressional the elections shifts 17 House races in the direction of Democrats. Race-by-race rankings are moving several GOP incumbents into the tossup category. Among them are Texas Rep. John Culberson, Illinois Rep. Peter Roskam, Indiana Rep. Steve Chabot, and Iowa Rep. David Young.
  • REPORT: Republican Lawmakers Laugh In Paul Ryan's Face For Trusting Harry Reid

    Republican lawmakers reportedly laughed at House Speaker Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) after he told them he had been given a promise from Senate Democratic Leader Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV). Lawmakers were amused at Ryan's naiveté for thinking that Reid is someone their party can trust. "I know, I know," Ryan replied with a smile, according to The Hill. Reid and Ryan just finished working together to help pass a $1 trillion dollar spending bill, which many argue contained far more liberal policies than conservative ones. Reid has promised Ryan that he will return to regular order in the New Year....
  • Eric Holder refers Congress to Treasury for legal basis of Obamacare delays (Pelosi knew)

    Attorney General Eric Holder told a House panel that lawmakers interested in knowing the legal basis for President Obama's delay of the Affordable Care Act's employer mandate should look to the Treasury Department for answers. "The Treasury Department had looked at it and determined that there was a legal basis [for the mandate delay]," Holder told Rep. Steve Chabot, R-Ohio, during a House Judiciary Committee hearing. "I think I would refer you to that document," he also said when asked for Justice Department analysis. Holder said that the Justice Department generally does not disclose the legal analyses provided to the...
  • Long live the Queen: Delta Queen could sail again from Chattanooga within a year

    She wants to be back on the waters, where she belongs. The Delta Queen is crippled right now, stuck in a position beneath the dignity of its river royalty -- moored to the banks of the Tennessee River and in need of some mechanical work. Her supporters hope she'll soon be plying the nation's rivers once more like her "granddaughter," the American Queen, which was in Chattanooga on Saturday on its Civil War-themed cruise. Travis Vasconcelos, "riverlorian" on the American Queen, said the Memphis-based boat stops in Chattanooga about once each year. American Queen guests, staff and operators visited with...

    Business Courier of Cincinnati ^ | 04/25/2008 | not stated
    U.S. Rep. Steve Chabot, R-OH, blamed labor unions and partisan politics for a U.S. House vote this week rejecting an amendment that could have kept the Delta Queen riverboat from having to phase out its overnight cruise packages. The historic riverboat has been operating with a special Congressional exemption from the federal Safety at Sea Act since 1968, an exemption that has been renewed eight times. The safety act bans the use of wooden vessels for overnight cruises. Backers of the exemption claim the Delta Queen deserves special treatment because of its historical significance and recently upgraded fire-safety systems. With...
  • GOP Rep. Chabot a "Useful Idiot" (my title)

    Middle American News ^ | August 2006 | Elizabeth Howard
    . . . Useful Idiot. In 1999, the Clinton Administration settled a “black farmer” lawsuit against the government by agreeing to a demonstrably corrupt settlement that has since cost taxpayers well over $1 billion for claims that were virtually all phony. (Harvest of Lies, a book detailing this fiasco, is available from Representative Government Press, see page 23.) That was not sufficient for Rep. Steve Chabot (R-OH), who has held a series of shamelessly slanted hearings over the past two years to promote the idea that the government should pay out another $4 billion for over 70,000 mostly phony new...

    CINCINNATI - Republican Sen. John McCain (news, bio, voting record) campaigned on Tuesday for a conservative congressman who publicly disagreed with the potential 2008 presidential candidate on how to deal with illegal immigration. Six-term Rep. Steve Chabot (news, bio, voting record) made it clear that while he welcomed McCain's appearance at a breakfast fundraiser, the two are on opposite sides on how to deal with the nation's estimated 11 million illegal immigrants. "This happens to be an area where the senator and I don't agree," Chabot said after McCain attended the fundraiser for the Ohio congressman's re-election campaign. Chabot said...
