WASHINGTON — The House will miss the midnight Monday deadline lawmakers set for voting to avoid the "fiscal cliff." House Republicans notified lawmakers that the chamber will vote Monday evening on other bills. They say that will be their only votes of the day.President Barack Obama and Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said Monday they are near a deal to avoid wide-ranging tax increases and spending cuts — the fiscal cliff — that take effect with the new year.

Pin his ears back. It sets the stage for impeachment if he tries to do an end run.

Oh-Oh. The house has deemed keeping milk prices at prices nobody cares about and aid for Alaskan fisheries is more important than the fictional "cliff.

They don´t have the votes. Say good-bye to Boehner and McConnel.

I would like to say good-bye to Obama, but his impeachment is about a year away.

You literally have a handful of House conservatives trying to save the country from itself,while keeping promises to their districts. This at the risk of being targeted by both parties in 2014.

Boehner´s worse night mare is a cliff deal carried by House dems which could very well happen in an open vote.

I´m on board with #6. During the Carter Administration, I realized I was at odds with my party, the democrats, and registered GOP because they seemed more conservative.

If the GOP leadership caves on this, the GOP won´t get a thing from me. But, I´ll support any Tea Party candidate.

I never thought there would be a deal, and I don´t think that´s a bigger problem, that is, any deal would be worse.

I don´t think Obama cares, and frankly neither do I. Nobody is even talking about the REAL PROBLEM, which is jobs outsourced to China. Only after that is spending even a problem. Of course the mondo problems remain social security and medicare, and nobody has the foggiest ideas what to do about either of them, either.

This is all so incredibly stupid and fake.

Silicon Valley companies like Facebook have been openly critical of the Obama administration for its surveillance practices. But that´s apparently not enough for Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg, who lashed out Thursday at Washington. "When our engineers work tirelessly to improve security, we imagine we´re protecting you against criminals," Zuckerberg wrote in a blog post, "not our own government."Zuckerberg went on: "The U.S. government should be the champion for the Internet, not a threat.

Missing plane sent signals

WASHINGTON — A U.S. official says a Malaysia Airlines plane was sending signals to a satellite for four hours after the aircraft went missing, an indication that it was still flying. The official said the Boeing 777-200 wasn´t transmitting data to the satellite, but sending out a signal to establish contact. Boeing offers a satellite service that can receive a stream of data during flight on how the aircraft is functioning. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn´t authorized to speak publicly, said Malaysia Airlines didn´t subscribe to that service, but the system was automatically pinging the satellite

KUALA LUMPUR — Malaysia’s government categorically denied a report on Thursday suggesting a missing passenger jet flew on for four hours after vanishing from air traffic control systems, as the search entered a sixth day and speculation and theories about the plane’s fate continued to mount.Earlier, the Wall Street Journal reported that U.S. investigators now believe Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 remained in the air four hours after its last confirmed location. That report, quoting two unnamed sources familiar with the U.S. investigation, cited evidence from flight data from the Boeing 777’s engines that are automatically transmitted to the ground.As the

Democratic congressional candidate Alex Sink did not lose a Florida special election Tuesday because she supports President Obama´s health reform law, the White House maintained Wednesday.“Any fair assessment of the role that the debate about the Affordable Care Act played reaches the conclusion that, at best for the Republicans, it was a draw,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said. “And I think that´s evidenced by the fact that the Republican candidate himself didn´t even mention it in his victory speech.” Republican candidate David Jolly defeated Sink by two points in a closely watched race to represent Florida’s 13th District --

CBS’s Sharyl Attkisson announced this week that she is leaving the network, the culmination of a series of clashes between the investigative reporter and her bosses.But people familiar with the situation say that Attkisson actually attempted to resign one year ago, even starting to clean out her desk in the Washington bureau. CBS News Chairman Jeff Fager talked her out of leaving last March, promising that some of the issues she had raised would be addressed. Based on these assurances, Attkisson returned to work full time and dropped efforts to terminate her contract. But the differences proved irreconcilable in an atmosphere that

When blacks gave 80 percent of their vote to the Democratic Party in 1964, black activist Malcolm X called them "political chumps." White voters, X said, "are so evenly divided that every time they vote, the race is so close they have to go back and count the votes all over again. Which means that any bloc, any minority that has a bloc that sticks together is in a strategic position. Either way you go, that´s who gets it." Yet Democrats, said Malcolm X, failed to deliver on a promised and much anticipated new civil rights bill, knowing the party

Recently, a bizarre scene unfolded on the floor of the House of Representatives that would have shocked the framers of the Constitution. In his State of the Union address, President Obama announced that he had decided to go it alone in areas where Congress refused to act to his satisfaction. In a system of shared powers, one would expect an outcry or at least stony silence when a president promised to circumvent the legislative branch. Instead, many senators and representatives erupted in rapturous applause; they seemed delighted at the notion of a president assuming unprecedented and unchecked powers at their

Republican David Jolly edged out Democrat Alex Sink to win Tuesday´s special election in Florida´s 13th Congressional District. Jolly will fill out the term of his former boss, Republican Rep. Bill Young, who died in October. Young, first elected to Congress in 1970, was the longest-serving Republican in the House.

Aviation investigators and national security officials believe the plane flew for a total of five hours, based on data automatically downloaded and sent to the ground from the Boeing Co.

How would you feel if a police officer you knew for 20 years told you that if an order were issued to confiscate your guns, he wouldn’t hesitate to “kick your door in”? This was the precisely the experience Connecticut resident, Navy veteran and former firefighter John Cinque had after commenting on his state’s 2013 violation of the Second Amendment. The law in question criminalizes the sale of magazines holding more than 10 rounds and also certain semi-automatic rifles, and mandates that all grandfathered weapons and magazines must be registered with the state.

A report released Tuesday by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform asserted that ex-IRS official Lois Lerner waived her Fifth Amendment rights. Lerner continues to stonewall California Rep. Darrell Issa’s committee, pleading the Fifth again in a divisive Oversight hearing last Wednesday convened to get to the bottom of the IRS’ improper targeting of conservative groups between 2010 and 2012. Oversight member Rep. Jim Jordan told The Daily Caller that the committee is “moving” toward holding Lerner in contempt of Congress to compel her to testify. “I think that’s where we’re moving,” Jordan said. “I think that’s where this is headed.”

Madison police say three men planned a home invasion, but broke into the wrong home on Quincy Avenue on the north side around 6 a.m. on February 23. Police say the suspects were aware it was not the intended home, but they proceeded to violently attack the two victims who had been sleeping.

With nearly all of the votes counted Tuesday night, Jolly had 48.5 percent of the vote to Alex Sink’s 46.7 percent. Libertarian Lucas Overby had 4.8 percent. Sink lost the 2010 governor’s race to Rick Scott.
