National Journal, by Sarah Mimms

Original Article

Posted By:SoCalGal, 6/11/2014 7:21:03 PM

House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy huddled with about 35 lawmakers Wednesday afternoon to seek their support in his bid to be the chamber´s next majority leader, according to a member in the room. The meeting included the heads of several committees, including Appropriations Chairman Harold Rogers, Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp, and Energy and Commerce Chairman Fred Upton. Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., who was recently tapped to lead the select committee to investigate Benghazi, was also present. (Snip) House Armed Services Chairman Buck McKeon was not in the meeting with McCarthy but said the two spoke by phone earlier

Comments:
McKeon said he was already on board with McCarthy. No arm-twisting necessary. McCarthy is a good man.

I remember one of those photo ops of Boehner/Cantor/McCarthy looking grim faced and making statements against Conservatives and the Tea Party. He would be a terrible choice, and much more of the same elite permanent political ruling class.

Have the Republicans learned nothing from Cantor´s defeat?

I don´t know him, or anything about him. I am just VERY tired of all the leadership coming from blue states! And if Cantor and Boner support him, He´s not the fighter we need.

Just maybe Cantor´s defeat will make McCarthy be more careful in supporting conservatives, if he gets the job.

We are not stupid. ANYONE in Boehner´s inner circle, meaning his top lieutenants, IS a yes man to this Speaker and is cut from the same cloth. I heard nothing vibrant in his remarks except canned talking points which Americans generally ignore and conservatives are weary of..

Consider too that some of the strongest conservative candidates are in line for major committee chairmanships. They cannot be majority leader and also chair a committee. This must be carefully managed.

A British actor who appeared in the Harry Potter film series has been found dead in a remote part of California´s Death Valley, authorities say. Mixed martial arts fighter Dave Legeno, 50, was found by hikers on Sunday and his body was recovered by helicopter. There were no signs of foul play and it is believed he died from the heat, an initial coroner´s examination found. He appeared as werewolf Fenrir Greyback in three Harry Potter movies, including both Deathly Hallows films.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida’s political landscape is being upended by a landmark legal ruling that one legal expert says could influence the way other states draw their congressional districts. A circuit judge ruled late Thursday that the state Legislature illegally drew Florida’s congressional districts to primarily benefit the Republican Party. Judge Terry Lewis ruled that two of the state’s 27 congressional districts were invalid and that the map must be redrawn. Justin Levitt, a law professor at Loyola Law School who tracks redistricting cases, called the decision a “big victory” for Florida’s voters that could be a model for other states to

The murder suspect who police describe as a high-end prostitute wrote a post on Facebook about killing sprees in the days before her arrest. Alix Tichelman wrote on June 28 that it was "really nice to talk with someone about killing sprees and murdering people in cold blood...and they love it too." "No judgement. Yay!” she wrote. “F*** all of that positivity bulls***. Take a look around you. Life is hard and then you die." (Snip)According to her Facebook page, which has since been removed, Tichelman, 26, is from Atlanta and was planning to make a road trip home sometime in July.

Structural confusion is a strategy, and this White House has perfected the skill of using confusion to outwit the opposition.Various downstream factions of political opposition are predictably breaking apart under the flow of illegal immigration issues President Obama is controlling upstream.

More than seven months after a Silicon Valley executive was found dead on his yacht of an apparent overdose, police said they have uncovered new video evidence that reveals he may have been murdered. Alix Tichelman, 26, who police describe as a high-end call girl, is believed to be the woman in the video injecting Forrest Hayes, 51, with heroin during a date together last November, according to Santa Cruz police. It was initially thought that Hayes, who had worked at Apple and was employed by Google at the time of his death, died of an overdose on his yacht, "The Escape."The

The irony of this statement by Tom Perez is not lost on us. You see, Tom Perez used to be the head of the Community Relations Service (CRS) within the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice.We have stated for several years the CRS is filled with intensely angry leadership who advocate for aggressive, often violent, racial confrontations. To see the former head of the DOJ Anger Army proclaiming his desire for violence against Republicans is, well, just typical.

President Barack Obama is holding off for now on seeking new legal authority to send unaccompanied migrant kids back home faster from the Southern border, following criticism that the administration´s planned changes were too harsh. Instead when Obama formally asks Congress for more than $2 billion in emergency spending Tuesday to deal with the border crisis, the request will not be accompanied by the policy changes that the White House had indicated it planned to seek, according to two congressional aides. The aides spoke Monday on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak about the matter by name

It´s probably safe to go back in the water. Despite a recent string of shark sightings off Manhattan Beach, including one that ended with a swimmer being hospitalized after he was bitten near the pier Saturday morning, reports of shark attacks are uncommon in the United States, records show. According to data tracked by the Florida Museum of Natural History, there were 39 reported shark attacks in California from 2001 to 2013, or 3.25 per year, and five of them resulted in fatalities. East Coast swimmers are much more likely to wind up the victims of a shark attack, according to the data.

An alleged spy has been arrested in Germany accused of passing the US information from a committee looking into NSA activities. It has heightened diplomatic tensions between the two countries following allegations in the Edward Snowden leaks that the US electronic spy agency tapped Angela Merkel’s phone along with wider surveillance of German citizens. The German government has not denied reports by Der Spiegel and the Sueddeutsche Zeitung that the suspected spy was a double agent and worked for Germany´s foreign intelligence service, the BND.

LONDON — Eugenie Bouchard is a rising phenom, bound and determined to be a champ, but her fortnight at Wimbledon turned into a harsh wannabe’s tutorial Saturday when Czech star Petra Kvitova shaped the ladies singles championship into her own 55-minute clinic in speed dating with destiny. Kvitova, a fitter, faster, and more focused version of the woman who won here in 2011, pulverized Bouchard, 6-3, 6-0, in a thorough and powerful game of yellow-ball keepaway. For the brief time she was out there, the seemingly stunned Bouchard, a 20-year-old Montrealer, found herself unable to buy a second’s respite or

MARIETTA, Georgia — A Georgia man who police say intentionally killed his toddler son by leaving the boy inside a hot SUV was exchanging nude photos with women the day his son died and had looked at websites that advocated against having children, a detective testified Thursday. Cobb County Police Detective Phil Stoddard testified at a hearing that evidence showed Justin Ross Harris was practically leading a double life and should not be granted bond. Stoddard described the evidence police have suggesting Harris, who is charged with murder, killed his 22-month-old son Cooper intentionally. Harris and his wife had two

Sarah Palin wants to impeach Barack Obama. In an op-ed article published last week, the former Republican vice presidential nominee declared that the crisis on the southern border (where young illegal immigrants are being detained) "is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, ´No, mas´." The Republican Speaker of the House, John Boehner, thinks that´s loco. (Technically, he said, "I disagree".) For Republicans hoping to avoid the kind of drama that might derail what looks to be a very good midterm election year, this kind of call is both a nuisance and a trend. In a world where there are no

On April 1, the U.S. economy dropped a whopping 2.9 percent for the first three months of the year (no fooling). The American workforce participation rate fell to a 40-year low. One-third of people aged 18-29 have moved back in with their parents. Millions of Americans this summer will enjoy yet another “staycation”: They just can’t afford to go to the beach or the mountains, even for a week — again. (Snip) Forget that the United States is deep into what Mr. Obama dramatically declares a “humanitarian crisis,” that the Middle East is a powder keg about to blow, that Iraq has all but fallen to Islamist terrorists.

A Fox News exclusive reported this morning by Jana Winter inexplicably buried the lede. Winter reports that several dead children have been discovered “washed up along the riverbank” of the Rio Grande, but fails to note that there have been no reports by the Obama administration on this. This indicates a pattern of covering up dead illegal alien kids by the Obama administration. It was two weeks before news was reported on the sole child death acknowledged by the Obama administration, Gilberto Ramos, a 15 year-old boy from Guatemala whose body was found in the Texas brush dead from the

Those grievances range from (but are not limited to) Benghazi, the IRS scandal, the "targeting" of conservative filmmaker Dinesh D´Souza, illegal immigration, the Hobby Lobby Supreme Court case, the treatment of war veterans, the chaos in Iraq and deep reservations about President Obama. "Five years ago, I stated that Obama would take the country apart piece-by-piece, that he would cause a civil war in this country," Voight read on Saturday in a statement on

Inquiring minds wonder if there’s a “G” in the grading repertoire. And that does not stand for “good.” Pollster John Zogby has given President Obama an “F” this week for the White House performance on the global stage, and the researcher has no imminent good news for the president. “Some people have really bad weeks. Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff got an ‘F’ after the nation’s soccer team lost to Germany. But President Obama’s week was just as bad,” Mr. Zogby says. “Israel and the Palestinians are at war again.
