Vulnerable Senate Democrats Stuck with ObamaCare

On Friday, the House is expected to pass a continuing resolution to extend funding for government, but also strip all discretionary spending to implement ObamaCare. If enacted, the House action would allow government to remain open but place a huge obstacle to ObamaCare. While all of the media is consumed with an internal GOP debate on this issue, the true target of such a move has escaped notice. If the House proceeds with its vote, several vulnerable Democrat Senators face a series of bad choices. Sep 19, 2013 7:57 AM PT

Fed Admits Economy Is in Trouble

On Wednesday, it was widely expected that the Federal Reserve would announce that it is reducing the massive stimulus it pumps into the market each month. The Fed's stimulus, called "quantitative easing" is ultimately unsustainable and has caused a rapid acceleration in the Fed's balance sheet. The Fed, however, announced that it would continue its monetary stimulus indefinitely. Sep 18, 2013 11:33 AM PT

Flashback: RNC Warned About Obama Inexperience

In 2008, the RNC released several ads that called into question Barack Obama's ability to lead or manage a crisis. In light of the foreign policy debacle surrounding Syria and Obama's inability to move his agenda through Congress, it is worth revisiting those ads. Sep 18, 2013 10:19 AM PT

House Set to Vote to Defund ObamaCare

In a closed-door caucus meeting on Wednesday, House Leadership is expected to unveil a new continuing resolution to temporarily fund government that also defunds the ObamaCare law. It is a potential reversal from Leadership's previous position and a victory for conservative grass-roots activists. Sep 18, 2013 5:28 AM PT

Exclusive -- Focus Group Independents Turn on Terry McAuliffe

On Thursday, Breitbart News was exclusively invited to observe a two-panel focus group of Virginia voters discussing, among other issues, the upcoming race for Governor. The groups were split, one consisting of lean GOP voters, the other of independents. Surprisingly, both came to the same conclusion, as best explained by a liberal female participant, "The more I learn about Terry, the less I like him. The more I learn about Ken [Cuccinelli], the more I like him." Sep 17, 2013 1:24 PM PT

Urgent Need for Security Clearance, Not Gun, Control

Before all the wounded from yesterday's shooting at the Navy Yard had even arrived at hospitals, the usual suspects were rushing to the press with renewed calls for gun control. Elites like Sen. Diane Feinstein, David Brooks and elite-wannabe David Frum all prescribed a healthy dose of gun control even before the facts about the shooting were known. Sep 17, 2013 12:51 PM PT

Cuccinelli, Levin Hold Joint Constitution Day Rally

On Tuesday, GOP Governor candidate Ken Cuccinelli and talk radio host Mark Levin will headline a Constitution Day rally in the vote-critical Northern Virginia. The rally marks the 226th Anniversary of the signing of the U.S. Constitution. As Attorney General Cuccinelli took ObamaCare all the way to the Supreme Court and Levin has authored a number of best-selling books exploring the Constitution. They are perfect choices to headline the event. Sep 16, 2013 1:38 PM PT

Navy Yard: White Male Sought By Police No Longer a Suspect

Top GOP Staff Head for K Street

Washington's revolving door is spinning a bit faster as several top GOP Leadership aides have left Capitol Hill in recent months to join lobbying firms or corporate lobbying offices. Speaker Boehner, whose staff famously remain with him for years, has lost at least 6 top staffers to lobbying jobs since the last Congress. The exodus isn't confined to the Speaker's office, however, as top staff to several GOP leaders have left recently to capitalize on their contacts. Sep 16, 2013 8:36 AM PT

Obama Is Now a Lame Duck President

Two singular events in the past two weeks suggest President Obama has entered the twilight of his presidency, with diminishing ability to even muster the support of his Democrat allies in the Senate. First, he surprisingly, over Labor Day weekend, abruptly changed course and announced he would seek Congressional approval for military action in Syria. The move surprised even members of his Administration. The second was the surprise withdrawal of Larry Summers, Obama's presumed pick to be the next Federal Reserve Chairman. Summers possible nomination collapsed amid growing opposition from Senate Democrats. Sep 16, 2013 6:42 AM PT

GOP Lt. Gov Bill Bolling Pushing for Terry McAuliffe

On Friday, the Northern Virginia Technology Council, an association of leading businesses in the vote-rich area of the Commonwealth, was scheduled to endorse GOP candidate Ken Cuccinelli, through its PAC. The Washington Post reports, however, that the announcement was delayed after furious behind-the-scenes lobbying by the McAuliffe campaign to have the endorsement rescinded. Most surprising, however, is that GOP Lt. Gov Bill Bolling was among those lobbying the trade group on McAuliffe's behalf, against his fellow Republican. Sep 15, 2013 8:41 PM PT

Boehner Seeks Democrat Help on Budget Deal

In meetings Wednesday and Thursday, House Speaker John Boehner reached out to key Democrat leaders, hoping to restart negotiations to avoid a government shutdown and reach a deal on lifting the nation's debt ceiling. In a meeting with Treasury Secretary Jack Lew, Boehner sought help from the Obama Administration to resolve the short-term budget issues and overcome a block of conservative lawmakers demanding a delay or defunding of ObamaCare.

Miss: August Retail Sales Grow Less Than Expected

U.S. retail sales grew just 0.2% in August, the smallest gain in four months and well below economists' expectations of a 0.5% lift. The report, released Friday by the Commerce Department, showed August growth about half the level of gains in July. Lingering unemployment and stagnant wage gains held down consumer spending, which accounts for 70% of the US economy. Sep 13, 2013 5:58 AM PT

Democrat Congresswoman Fundraises Off 9-11

September 11 has become a de-facto national holiday. Even if we don't publicly speak about it, we silently remember where we were that day and reflect on how the events changed our lives. For Democrat Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick, however, remembrance of those tragic events is a perfect opportunity to ask for donations to her campaign. Sep 12, 2013 9:36 AM PT

Dem Spin: Milk Prices Will Double Without Farm Bill

Democrats on the Hill are nakedly pushing the Department of Agriculture to take steps doubling the price of milk in a bid to ease passage of a new Farm Bill. Rep. Collin Peterson, Ranking Member on the House Agriculture Committee, has admitted to the press that he called the Ag Department and asked them to implement an arcane 1949 law that would cause a huge spike in the price of milk. Apparently, we need a new, flawed, government law to preempt on old, flawed, government law. Sep 12, 2013 9:07 AM PT
