Ackerman: Obama's Executive Amnesty Is Like the Emancipation Proclamation

Last week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi compared President Barack Obama's declaration of executive amnesty for millions of illegal aliens to President Abraham Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation during the Civil War.

Clinton Allies Think Support for Obama's Amnesty Was 'Smart Move'

In a lengthy piece at The Hill this weekend, Amie Parnes takes a look at "What Hillary allies fear the most."

Capitol Weekly, one of Sacramento’s most credible news sources that reports on political and policy goings-on in the Golden State, has bestowed their “Singin’ Those Golden State Blues” award for the worst week in California politics to House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, tagging him with the ultimate responsibility for the failure to pick up even one of nine Congressional seats in California that were competitive. 21 Nov 2014
