Democrat Takes the First Steps Toward a Trump Impeachment

Texas Democratic Rep. Al Green formally drafted articles of impeachment that are designed to force President Donald Trump out of office Wednesday. The representative asserted that the president obstructed justice by firing former FBI Director James Comey in May. Other Democrats, like California Rep. Maxine Waters and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, joined in the call for Trump’s impeachment, but Green was the only member of Congress to call for the beginning of impeachment proceedings on the House floor. “Obstruction of justice by the president is the problem,” Green said in an official statement late Tuesday. “Impeachment by Congress is the solution.” “This is obstruction of justice. This will continue to be obstruction of justice regardless of testimony given by Mr. James Comey,” Green continued. “The question that only Congress can answer is whether the … Read entire article »

Meet the ‘Bernie Sanders’ of Britain Who Is Now Vying for Prime Minister

Great Britain is set to hold a “snap” election on Thursday. Currently, the conservative Tories hold power in Parliament, but are being challenged by the Labour Party in what could be a hotly contested race for power. The Conservative Party is expected to win, but if Labour prevails, British leadership would undergo a dramatic shift. When many Americans think of the British Labour Party, they often think of Tony Blair, the prime minister who cooperated with former President George W. Bush in the early 2000s and supported the Iraq War. Labour’s new leader wanted to investigate Blair for war crimes. Clearly, times have changed. A Labour victory in Thursday’s election would mean Prime Minister Theresa May could be replaced by far-left challenger Jeremy Corbyn, who stunningly rose to lead his party in 2015 after … Read entire article »

For Scotland, Independence, Not Terrorism, Is the Closing Argument to Thursday’s British Election

For Scotland, Independence, Not Terrorism, Is the Closing Argument to Thursday’s British Election

EDINBURGH, Scotland—The police armed response vehicles patrolling here in Scotland’s capital city are practically invisible unless you know what to look for. As part of a nationally heightened terrorism threat level in the wake of three deadly terrorist attacks by Islamist militants in the United Kingdom in as many months, specially trained, armed police personnel are deployed throughout Edinburgh. Ready to deploy at a moment’s notice if a threat presents itself, they remain ensconced in discreet … Read entire article »

‘Too Big to Fail’ Has Been Damaging for America. This Bill Would Finally End It.

It has been a long time coming for the Financial CHOICE Act. This bill, which will pass the House on Thursday, is the culmination of an idea that has germinated across the country since the disastrous market crash of the late 2000s and the subsequent bailouts, overreaching, and misguided federal legislation. That idea is simple: Big institutions that fail must be allowed to fail. Government’s responsibility is very simply to create an environment where failure can occur—and when it does, it can create a freer and fairer marketplace. The only way to end “too big to fail” is to ensure that institutions that are too big can fail. After the 2008 crash, Washington did what it does best. It responded by propping up failing institutions and throwing more money at the problem, clearly exacerbating … Read entire article »

How This Lawmaker Wants to Advance Conservative Ideas by Changing the Spending Process

A Georgia congressman proposes a timing change in government spending that he says would advance conservative principles as well as fast-track the budget process. “Just given the known time constraints we have, this is just a new idea to make the government funding process work and [do so] in a transparent way, while at the same time crafting a bill that matches our conservative beliefs as a Republican conference,” Rep. Tom Graves, R-Ga., told The Daily Signal in an interview. Grave hopes to involve a plurality of conservative lawmakers in creating a final spending package rather than simply voting on a deal crafted by congressional leadership from both parties, a House staffer said. Graves, chairman of the House subcommittee on Financial Services and General Government, proposes that instead of considering … Read entire article »

These 13 Counties Started Work Requirements for Food Stamps. Here’s What Happened.

Participation in the food stamp program plunged by 85 percent in 13 counties in Alabama after officials required that recipients must work, look for work, or get approved job training, a state agency says.

A Democratic Donnybrook in the Old Dominion? By Geoffrey Skelley

With the Virginia primary less than a week away, the eyes of the political world are now focused on the Old Dominion. Considering the early polling in New Jersey’s gubernatorial general election contest, where Phil Murphy (D) starts as the favorite over Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno (R) after both won their respective party nominations on Tuesday (more on that below), it seems likely that Virginia’s race will be the marquee election of 2017, though the June 20 House special election in GA-6 might have a case. Here’s what to look for in the Virginia primary on Tuesday, June 13. … Read entire article »

Comey Edges Trump In Voter Trust

Hillary Clinton blames former FBI Director James Comey for her loss last November, but a sizable majority of Democrats have more confidence in Comey than in the man who actually beat her.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 45% of all Likely U.S. Voters trust Comey more than Trump. Thirty-seven percent (37%) trust the president more, while 18% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.) (Want a free daily e-mail update? If it’s in the news, it’s in our polls).

At least Hillary knows who she can blame for Comey going public

**Written by Doug Powers James Comey going public with the FBI’s investigation is one reason Hillary Clinton’s included him on her lengthy list of people not named “Hillary Clinton” who are to blame for her election loss. At the hearing Thursday, Comey explained that he might not have felt compelled to go public with the investigation if it hadn’t been for one thing: Former FBI director James Comey testified in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday morning and revealed a surprising tidbit about why he went public on the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails. During the 2016 election cycle, Bill Clinton met with former Attorney General Loretta Lynch on a tarmac in Phoenix, Arizona ― a move that was widely discussed because it coincided with the Justice Department investigating his wife, … Read entire article »
