Scott Walker Catches Fire In Virginia: Hillary Clinton Should Be ‘Disqualified’ From Being President

Speaking before a crowd of a couple hundred at a PWC Young Republicans cookout at the county GOP headquarters, Walker lambasted the Washington establishment and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. He said Clinton’s email scandal should mean she is “disqualified” from being president. He joked, too, that the leftwing Occupy Wall Street movement didn’t start on Wall Street—it started on his street in Wisconsin. Most importantly, Walker—who did slip a little bit in some recent polls as businessman Donald Trump has risen to become the clear GOP frontrunner—appeared to have a renewed level of energy and seemed to be having fun.

House Homeland Security Committee Aides Say No Fence For Border, Because It’s Too Expensive

A border bill introduced by House Homeland Security Committee chairman Rep. Mike McCaul (R-TX) has less than 50 miles of border fencing because McCaul thinks it would cost American taxpayers too much to secure the whole border, McCaul aides tell Breitbart News. In addition, committee materials that were distributed to House Republicans in an effort to win their support for the bill contain provably false information—specifically a claim that there are already 652 miles of double-layer fencing, of the 700 miles required by law, built on the U.S. border with Mexico.

Davos 2014: The Beginning of Cantor’s End

With this year’s Davos conference ramping up – USA Today calls it the “conference for the 1%” – it seems worth noting that if last year’s conference achieved anything, it may be that it went a long way to help unseat then-influential Republican, Eric Cantor.
