To watch the recent happenings on Capitol Hill, you would think this was just another typical presidential election year—a few bumps here and there, but no sign of a major shake-up, no indication voters were in revolt, nothing to suggest business as usual in Washington was perhaps falling out of fashion among the American public.

What else explains the lackluster, uninspiring; and, I would suggest, “sell-out your base” agenda of GOP congressional leadership?

But at least the GOP is going to put up

A $5 billion lawsuit filed by a nonprofit insurer against the Obama administration for a program implemented under Obamacare is raising questions about the use of a fund available for settlements with the government and whether Congress can, and should, intervene.

According to legal experts, if the Obama administration decided to settle its class action lawsuit with Health Republic Insurance of

Grassley, McConnell hold line against lame duck Obama Supreme Court pick

Share

 

By Robert Romano at NetRight Daily and Americans for Limited Government

No sooner than President Barack Obama had dropped his nominee to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court, D.C. Circuit Chief Judge Merrick Garland, and Senate Republican leaders have declared him dead on arrival.

“Co-equal authorities are throughout the Constitution, including Article II, Section 2, where the power to nominate an individual to the Supreme Court is granted to the President and authority is given to the Senate to provide advice and consent. Nowhere in the Constitution does it describe how the Senate should either provide its consent or withhold its consent,” Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) said.

“‘How is the life there in Iraq?’”

That’s what people ask, said Father Douglas al-Bazi, a priest at the Mar Elia refugee camp in Erbil, Iraq.

“Actually, the easy answer is, there are no life in Iraq.”

Al-Bazi, a former ISIS hostage, talked about his own treatment at the hands of ISIS. He said he saw his church and car blow up in front of him. He was shot by an AK-47 in his leg, he said, and his captors broke his

Voters in no mood for a lame duck repeat of history

Share

By Dustin Howard at NetRight Daily and Americans for Limited Government

What can you expect from a lame duck session this year? If past is prologue, little good comes from them. Congress, already notorious for making the most odious sausage known to man, saves the worst things for last.

The thinking generally is that voters will forget eating the putrid scraps too disgusting to consume before an election. Pat Caddell, in his March 10 press briefing with Americans for Limited Government in Washington, D.C., stated otherwise.

“2014, after the lame duck session, I did a poll, and I said, My God! The Republican base is freaking out that their leadership has just voted, gone behind closed doors, and screwed

President Obama nominated a longtime federal appeals court judge to fill the vacant Supreme Court seat of the late Justice Antonin Scalia. But even before the announcement became official Wednesday morning, conservative groups quickly expressed concern.

Conservatives raised the alarm that the nominee was unacceptable as word leaked that Merrick Garland, chief judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, would be the president’s pick.

Garland “would be a reliable fifth vote for a laundry list of extreme liberal priorities,” the
