Congress Barrels Toward Highway Funding Deadline, August Recess

Monday night the Senate voted to advance its six-year highway legislation, including an extension of the Export-Import Bank attached. Conservatives are, however, staunchly opposed to Ex-Im’s reauthorization and House Leadership has indicated it will not take up the Senate’s bill.

Kerry Lies to Congress About Iran Deal & ‘Additional Protocol’

Secretary of State John Kerry misled the House Foreign Affairs Committee in his attempt to defend the Iran nuclear deal on Tuesday, claiming in his opening statement that Iran had complied with the interim agreement “completely and totally,” and that Iran was “required” by the deal to ratify a key agreement that would prevent it from developing dangerous nuclear technologies in the future. In fact, Iran violated parts of the interim agreement, and there is no guarantee that it will ratify the Additional Protocol to the Non-Proliferation Treaty.

Trump’s Ex-Wife Ivana Dismisses Daily Beast Smear Job: ‘Story Is Totally Without Merit’

“I have recently read some comments attributed to me from nearly 30 years ago at a time of very high tension during my divorce from Donald. The story is totally without merit. Donald and I are the best of friends and together have raised three children that we love and are very proud of. I have nothing but fondness for Donald and wish him the best of luck on his campaign. Incidentally, I think he would make an incredible president,” Ivana Trump, Donald’s ex-wife, said in the statement to CNN.

Workers at a Planned Parenthood clinic hang a banner to announce the opening of the facility October 2, 2007 in Aurora, Illinois. The clinic, reported to be the largest Planned Parenthood clinic in the country, was scheduled to open last month but the opening was held up by last minute legal challenges.

Planned Parenthood: How Liberals Stopped Worrying and Learned to Love the Unfettered Pursuit of Profit

These videos are exactly what liberal agenda journalists love doing to nearly every other mega-corporation in the land. When the Planned Parenthood executive muses on maximizing the profits of her baby-organ harvesting operation and says, “I think a per-item thing works a little better, just because we can see how much we can get out of it,” that’s the sort of line MSM journalists would underscore with ominous music, and maybe a slow zoom into her greedy capitalist-pig eyes, if this were an expose about any other Big Business.

Rand Paul

Rand Paul Confident GOP Can Defund Planned Parenthood by Summer Recess

Paul has been adamant about finding a way to defund the abortion industry giant in the wake of the release of undercover investigative videos showing Planned Parenthood senior officials discussing harvesting the body parts of aborted babies for sale to biotech companies. “There’s a nationwide movement that we’ve been leading,” Paul said, according to the Washington Post. “We will probably send a millio

Rep. Lummis: Rand Paul GOP’s Best Hope for Beating Hillary Clinton

Americans have had it with poll-tested, over-analyzed platitudes about domestic spying, misuse of taxpayer dollars, and massive data security breaches. The problems we face as a nation cannot be addressed by politicians who sugar-coat poisoned policies and hope the public doesn’t catch on. To win back the White House in 2016, Republicans cannot not settle for a candidate with a watered-down platform and flexible principles. Republicans must nominate a candidate capable of energizing those both inside and outside of the base. Senator Paul has proven to be that candidate.

Rep. Young: Want Congress to Assert Itself More? Pass the REINS Act

The people of my state don’t understand why the legislative branch—the branch tasked by our Constitution with making laws—so often defers to the executive branch to write the rules when the Obama administration (or any administration for that matter) attempts to legislate by regulation or executive order. That’s why I’ve introduced the REINS (Regulations from the Executive In Needs of Scrutiny) Act, to stop President Obama from issuing new costly, job‐killing regulations without Congressional approval.

Mark Levin’s Message to America: ‘Plunder and Deceit’

Mark Levin is hardly blind to all the other Big Government plunder going on, but in every chapter he returns to the ruling vs. rising generational conflict, urging young people to wake up and pull the political burglar alarms before they are wiped out. He knows this is an uphill battle, because so many liberal positions have been made fashionable to the very same young people whose future is being stolen by statism.

Pavone: Americans Must Look Planned Parenthood, Abortion Industry in The Eye

Planned Parenthood sells baby body parts. That is undeniable, and Congress as well as the individual states will now play their role in investigating the extent to which Planned Parenthood has broken the law. But whatever direction those investigations take, another investigation has also begun: the American people are being given a chance to look abortion in the eye.

McConnell

Mitch McConnell, John Cornyn Push Through Voice Vote to Fund Planned Parenthood, Protect Obama’s Iran Deal

On the floor of the U.S. Senate on Sunday evening, something remarkable—a little bit insider-y in Washington, but remarkable nonetheless—happened: The Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell, his entire leadership team, and most of the Republicans in the U.S. Senate voice voted through measures to fund Planned Parenthood in its entirety and to help protect President Barack Obama’s nuclear arms deal with Iran.
