Republicans on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee sharply criticized the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) for skipping a scheduled hearing on Thursday. Republicans on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee sharply criticized the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) for skipping a scheduled hearing on Thursday. TSA Administrator John Pistole was listed as an invited guest for the hearing, which was focused on the aviation security agency´s impact on commerce in the United States. But when Aviation Subcommittee Committee Chairman Rep. Tom Petri (R-Wis.) called Thursday´s meeting to order, Pistole´s seat was empty.

The Left´s version of bipartisanship.

We all know how they will behave now: worse than ever. I say, go for it! Show those Americans who voted for Obama and the Democrats what they have done. It is the only way some of them will ever learn.

Time for the republicans to take to the airwaves over this total neglect of national security issues.

Pile on the low life jerks.

More theatre from the GOP pretending they are upset. Hey George W.Bush,thanks again for this out of control agency along with the Department of Homeland Security. Violating and eliminating our Right´s was alway´s the end goal of both the repubs and dems, bin establishing these agencies.

The repubs have become a mirror image of the dems.

We need a new Party and we need it now!

#1 & #6 are correct. They won and will stick it to the impotent GOP, big time.

From Bengazi to the TSA, Justice, et al. The Administration is thumbing its nose at Congress.

The only TV channel that gives the GOP airtime is FOX.

In other words - shut up for the next four years.

We are totally ......

TSA has been so ineffective the entire set up should be scrubbed. TSA agents in airports have found NO ONE since it´s inception, so where is its value. Besides, the only ´bombers´ have come from foreign soil and they were "set-ups".

GOP to Pistole: You will show up or your agency will lose 40% of its funding.

Surely our GOP leaders are smart enough to use this very powerful incentive for the TSA to show up at their hearing.

The TSA is so ineffective that a favored national park border between Mexico & the U.S. is now on an honor basis. A shiney new border control building is 200 miles away. THIS tells you what the WH & his worthless administration think about national security.

None of these Obamaunist appointees want to be held accountable for the disastrous jobs they´re doing.Instead of going up there and lying and weaseling for 3 hours they just skip it.

These people hate any judgments being made on them by republicans and its just another way to dismantle the construction of our government.We´re in the middle of a grand coup by these people but they´re slick enough to avoid blame.

I can see no value in Republicans taking part in these type of committee meetings. Dictators neither respect nor heed what committees have to say. Republicans should consult Delingpole and Hannan for the creation and operation of a Shadow Government.

#18, That border crossing was wide open prior to 9-11. The citizens of Boquillas were free to cross and buy stuff at the Big Bend store, instead of making a 200 miles round trip, and US visitors to Big Bend could freely cross and purchase stuff from the citizens of Boquillas.

This is no big deal. In fact, it is more restrictive now, than it was on 9-10-01. Look at a map, notice the Mexican side of the map. This is not convenient for any drug runners or coyotes, and I assume they would not want to cross the border into a National Park, filled with full time Rangers.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

One day after making an audio appearance on RT to ask Vladimir Putin about Russian surveillance operations, National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden authored a Guardian column to clarify his intentions behind the question and push back on critics who suggest he was attempting to help whitewash the Russian president’s abuses. “Does Russia intercept, analyse or store millions of individuals’ communications?” Snowden asked Putin on Thursday, garnering a denial from Putin that included the statement: “We don’t have mass system of such interception. And according to our law it cannot exist.” Critics alleged that Snowden appeared in a scripted manner,

Police say a high school vice principal who had been rescued from a sinking South Korean ferry has been found hanging from a tree. The news of the death came Friday as rescuers scrambled to find hundreds of people still missing from the ferry and feared dead. The passengers included 325 second-year students from Danwon High School heading to a southern island on a four-day trip. The school vice principal found hanging Friday was identified as Kang Min-kyu, the lead guide for the school trip. No suicide note was found near the site, but Yonhap news agency reported that Kang

When a video of high school student Jeff Bliss calling out his teacher went viral, a lot of people started talking about the state of our education system and ways to improve it.

It´s not just carriage horse drivers saying neigh to plans for vintage cars tooling around Central Park. The Central Park Conservancy, the nonprofit organization that manages the city’s most famous greenspace, is coming out against a proposal backed by Mayor de Blasio to replace the horse-drawn carriages with replica old-time cars. Doug Blonsky, the conservancy’s president & CEO, told the Daily News that introducing the electric vehicles to the park would be a bad idea. “Forty million people visit Central Park each year, including runners, bicyclists, kids and dog owners,” Blonsky said Wednesday. “Adding vehicles to the mix will make the

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The
