    The Democratic rebuttal memo to the Republican House Intelligence Committee memo on alleged government surveillance abuses was released Saturday afternoon. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., acknowledged its release at his appearance at the Conservative Political Action Conference, at about 4 p.m. "It's just posted," he told American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp, quipping that the committee website was probably already crashing due to high traffic. Democrats say their memo was written as a rebuttal to provide greater context to a Republican memo that was released earlier this month, which outlines abuses by the FBI and the Justice Department...
  • Senator Says Cowardice of Armed School Officer Disproves “Good Guy with a Gun” Theory [semi-satire]

    The revelation that the site of the most recent school massacre had an armed police officer assigned to the school “disproves the conservative contention that ‘hardening the target’ is the way to go if we want to stop these kinds of gun tragedies,” says Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn). The Senator was referring to the fact that an officer from the Broward County Sheriff’s office was permanently assigned to the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida where expelled student Nikolas Cruz killed 17 students and faculty members last week. The assigned officer, Deputy Scot Peterson, declined to engage the...

    I cannot stop thinking of all those young innocent high school kids and their brave teachers that perished in one of the most "preventable" slaughters in USA history. I will refrain from outlining my emotional feelings of anger, disgust & dislike for all the Democrat public officials in Broward County....the school board administrators, the police leaders and coward officers, the failed FBI, etc. This ultra left-wing, Democrat Florida County, led by totally incompetents, beginning with Democrat, Congresswoman, Debbie, Wassermann Schultz, failed miserably in every way conceivable to do the number one job of our politicians, providing the children of their...

    For many years the Bishops of the United States have worked for comprehensive Immigration Reform. In recent times the issues surrounding immigrants have become more intense and complicated, more divisive, and more fraught with difficulties for our immigrant brothers and sisters.Last September the Administration in Washington announced it was phasing out a program called DACA — Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program — established in 2012 to grant at a two-year renewal interval amnesty against deportation. The program concerned those undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children or teenagers. In most cases these young people have...

    NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch said Thursday morning at CPAC that she wouldn't have been able to exit last night's town hall on the Parkland, Fla. school shooting if she didn't have a security detail. Loesch faced off with students who survived the shooting at a CNN-hosted forum. "I want to make this super obvious point," Loesch said. "The government has proven that they cannot keep you safe. And yet, some people want all of us to disarm. You heard that town hall last night. They cheered the confiscation of firearms. And it was over 5,000 people." "I had to have...

    The clearest way to get a picture of how well Democrats are doing in 2018 is to go down the list of recent special state legislative elections: * A Florida state legislative district that Donald Trump won by five points, according to data from liberal political blog Daily Kos, is now in the hands of Democrats, who won it by eight points this month. * In January, Democrats flipped a Wisconsin state legislative district that Trump won by 20 points. * A few weeks later, Democrats flipped a Missouri state legislative district that Trump won by nearly 30 points, for...

    Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-N.Y., said Wednesday that Democrats were more likely to be mass murderers in comparison to Republicans in an interview discussing the high school shooting in Parkland, Fla. "It's interesting that so many of these people that commit the mass murders end up being Democrats," Tenney told host Fred Dicker on Albany's Talk 1300 Radio. "But the media doesn't talk about that either."

    After appearing as the No. 1 trending video for hours, YouTube finally removed a video that suggested one of the high school students who survived the Parkland, Fl. shooting last week was an actor. In a statement to Fox News, a YouTube spokesperson said: "This video should never have appeared in Trending. Because the video contained footage from an authoritative news source, our system misclassified it. As soon as we became aware of the video, we removed it from Trending and from YouTube for violating our policies. We are working to improve our systems moving forward.” The title of the...

    Top Democrats are calling on Congress to give the FBI $300 million to fight potential foreign interference in this year's midterm elections, a request that comes just days after the Justice Department indicted Russians for meddling in the 2016 presidential contest. The letter being sent Wednesday by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., and top Democrats on the House and Senate appropriations committees calls on Republicans to provide the funding as part of "a robust and urgent response" to the Russian government's attempts to interfere in American elections. "Congress must respond immediately to attacks...

    If Nikolas Cruz had been arrested for his prior criminal behavior he would not have passed a background check for a firearm purchase. The issue was/is not the background check; the issue was/is the lack of a prior arrest. Hence, the Broward County school and law enforcement policy is ultimately what failed. I don’t say this lightly, but the lawyers have the easiest case for ‘wrongful death’ lawsuits in the history of this type of litigation. The county policy constructed by public officials (School Board and Superintendent), and the county law enforcement policy that was specifically and intentionally designed to...

    This is about as clean a political win as you're going to see these days, so Republicans are absolutely right to be pressing their advantage. They've earned it. They withstood weeks of withering and punishing demagoguery from Democrats and much of the press -- which also happened to be highly inaccurate and laughably hyperbolic -- and ultimately stuck together to pass a controversial and unpopular bill. The legislation would hurt the middle class and bring about the apocalypse, Democrats argued. Republicans countered that their plan would actually benefit the vast majority of American taxpayers and help US businesses. The...

    The Chicago Tribune ^ | February 20, 2018 | Rick Pearson
    Speaker Michael Madigan’s undisputed political power came under attack Tuesday amid new criticism over his handling of harassment complaints as the March Democratic primary increasingly turns into a referendum on his leadership. Madigan faced increasing calls for him to step down from the state Democratic chairman post he has held for two decades, as well as demands for an independent investigation of complaints that have led him to shed two top loyal political lieutenants in a week. The misconduct scandal comes as the long-serving speaker and his private interests as a property tax appeals lawyer already had been a focal...

    The battle between Senate Democrats and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) over the “blue-slip rule” escalated this week, after another one of President Trump’s judicial nominees advanced without the approval of both of their home-state senators The blue-slip rule — which Democrats describe as a long-running Senate tradition Grassley has taken to ignore — has become a flashpoint for members on the Judiciary Committee. The committee has been tasked with considering the slew of nominees from the Trump administration, many of which have been controversial. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the committee’s top Democrat, said that Grassley’s decision to...

    It’s happened. We saw this coming. In fact, unlike Obamacare, it was almost guaranteed to happen: the GOP bill is becoming more popular . It’s now split 44/44 percent supporting and opposing the legislation. That’s a 21-point jump from December when it was signed into law by President Donald J. Trump. The polling was dismal on the bill then, but Republicans held firm and passed it via reconciliation. Not a single Democrat voted for the bill; a bill that provides middle and working class tax relief. It was even asked back then: what will Democrats do when his tax...
