Senate poised to allow Duckworth’s
newborn on the floor

Politico, by Jennifer Haberkorn

The hidebound U.S. Senate is expected to change its rules soon for a member who just made history as a new mom. Sen. Tammy Duckworth, who this month became the first sitting senator to give a birth while in office, has submitted a resolution that would allow senators to bring a child under 1 year old onto the Senate floor during votes. Senate leaders appear poised to approve the request, according to Senate sources. (Snip) “I can’t be away from a newborn infant in the first three months for that long,” Duckworth told POLITICO before her baby was born. Duckworth, whose

Comments:
If this was a Republican they would have told her to go pound sand. I´m sorry, but I don´t think it is necessary to change the rules of the senate to accommodate her because allegedly that rule would make it difficult for her to vote. Seriously? She doesn´t have anyone who could care for that child during that time? Is she going to keep the baby with her all the time she is in chambers? If they don´t change the rule they will be called sexists and worse. The Democrats are so tiresome.

Sorry. I love babies and all but if you are a US Senator than you must leave baby with grandma or a nanny.
A baby doesn´t belong on the senate floor. I think it´s outrageous.
Maybe mom should re-think her job and maybe stay home with the kid. You can´t have your cake and eat it too.

Hire a nanny. Yep-you gotta pay for her yourself. Keep the kid in your office for a few months. Then leave the kid at home.
One of my cancer doctors is expecting twins any day. She already has 20 month old. 3 kids in 2 years. They will be with a nanny at home....not in her office (or the examination room).

This past weekend we reported that Internet sleuths determined who the Obama FBI spy was in the Trump campaign. Now we know he was a classmate of Bill Clinton’s and an advisor to the Clinton Administration! Jeff Carlson at theMarketswork on last Thursday identified an individual by the name of Stefan Halper as a potential FBI spy into the Trump campaign. (Note that some believe that Obama may have had more than one spy on the Trump campaign). Carlson determined that George Papadopoulos, the lower level campaign worker for the Trump campaign, appears to have been targeted by three individuals

Last week, several news outlets obtained financial records showing that Michael Cohen, President Trump’s personal attorney, had used a shell company to receive payments from various firms with business before the Trump Administration. In the days since, there has been much speculation about who leaked the confidential documents, and the Treasury Department’s inspector general has launched a probe to find the source. That source, a law-enforcement official, is speaking publicly for the first time, to The New Yorker, to explain the motivation: the official had grown alarmed after being unable to find two important reports on Cohen’s financial activity in

Inconvenient Science: NASA data show that global temperatures dropped sharply over the past two years. Not that you´d know it, since that wasn´t deemed news. Does that make NASA a global warming denier? Writing in Real Clear Markets, Aaron Brown looked at the official NASA global temperature data and noticed something surprising. From February 2016 to February 2018, "global average temperatures dropped by 0.56 degrees Celsius."

Michael Cohen, President Trump’s personal attorney, solicited a payment of at least $1 million from the government of Qatar in late 2016, in exchange for access to and advice about the then-incoming administration, according to several people with knowledge of the episode. The offer, which Qatar declined, came on the margins of a Dec. 12 meeting that year at Trump Tower between the Persian Gulf state’s foreign minister and Michael Flynn, who became Trump’s first national security adviser. Stephen K. Bannon, who became chief White House strategist, also attended, the people said. Cohen did not participate in the official

President Trump asked Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Wednesday to consider prosecuting the Democratic mayor of Oakland, Calif., after she warned hundreds of immigrants about an impending federal enforcement raid in February. The president said Mayor Libby Schaaf’s decision to warn her constituents ahead of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raid amounted to “obstruction of justice." (Snip) “You talk about obstruction of justice — I would recommend that you look into obstruction of justice for the mayor of Oakland, California, Jeff,” the president continued. “She advises thousand

At the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, the carry-on bag bulged with $1 million in cash from a welfare rip-off scheme. The loot was headed for Somalia, some of it to regions controlled by the al Shabaab terrorist group, and this shipment was part of $100 million sent over the past year alone. This scheme was not uncovered by the New York Times, CNN, “Frontline” or any “investigative” journalist in the old-line establishment media. It came to light in “Millions of dollars in suitcases fly out of MSP, but why?” a story by Jeff Baillon of KMSP, a Fox News outlet in Minnesota and the subject of a Powerline blog by

WASHINGTON — Within hours of opening an investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia in the summer of 2016, the F.B.I. dispatched a pair of agents to London on a mission so secretive that all but a handful of officials were kept in the dark. Their assignment, which has not been previously reported, was to meet the Australian ambassador, who had evidence that one of Donald J. Trump’s advisers knew in advance about Russian election meddling. After tense deliberations between Washington and Canberra, top Australian officials broke with diplomatic protocol and allowed the ambassador, Alexander Downer, to sit for an

President Trump´s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, told Fox News Wednesday that special counsel Robert Mueller has told the president´s legal team he will follow Justice Department guidance and not seek an indictment against Trump. Giuliani, himself a former federal prosecutor and mayor of New York City, also told Fox that Mueller´s investigators have not responded to five information requests from the president´s team. That has forced Trump´s legal team to push off making a decision about whether the president will sit for an interview with the special counsel -- a decision they had hoped to reach by Thursday.

The Senate´s laziness wouldn´t

Just how lazy is the Senate? If you need just one metric to measure this, consider the following: The Senate has had just one amendment vote this entire year. Many outside observers chalk the Senate’s glacial pace and lack of debate up to polarization and gridlock. But a closer observation reveals that gridlock has little to do with it. Rather, laziness does. I’ve spent the better part of the last year writing about ways in which the Republican Senate wastes time: working 2.5 days a week, engaging in endless quorum calls, and allowing the Democrats to run roughshod over the

Democratic jockeying for the 2020 presidential race was on full display Tuesday as a host of likely contenders addressed liberal activists in Washington. It was Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) who ultimately won the day with a full-throated assertion of the need for Democrats to hew closely to a base she characterized as “angry and scared” about President Trump’s impact on the nation. Warren argued at the Center for American Progress’s (CAP) Ideas Conference that the Democratic Party is “the party of ideas.” But she added, “The sad truth is, most of these ideas won’t go anywhere unless we deal with the defining

Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson delivered a stark warning on Wednesday of "a growing crisis in ethics and integrity" in American democracy, saying that a failure to confront that dilemma will usher the U.S. into its "twilight years." In a commencement address at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., Tillerson said that Americans had a responsibility to confront leaders who mislead the public or promote "realities that are no longer grounded in facts." "If our leaders seek to conceal the truth or we as people become accepting of alternative realities that are no longer grounded in facts, then we as

Vatican City — Pope Francis says he has thought about when it might be time to “take leave” of his flock. Francis made the comment during his morning homily Tuesday; the Vatican didn’t release the full text. Francis was reflecting on St. Paul discerning when to leave his flock in the care of others, a decision Francis said all bishops must make. He said: “When I read this, I think about myself, because I’m a bishop and I’ll have to take my leave.” Francis has said retired Pope Benedict XVI “opened a door” to future popes by resigning.

Under John Brennan, the CIA operated as an opposition research outfit for the Hillary Clinton campaign. It appears from leaked news stories in the British press that Brennan’s oafish spying on Trump began around April 2016, right after Trump’s biggest primary victories. As it became urgently clear to Brennan that Trump was going to face off against Hillary, Brennan turned to “intelligence partners” in Europe for dirt on Trump. But they didn’t have any, save some pretty skimpy material on “contacts” between Trump campaign officials and Russians. Whatever Brennan collected was so insubstantial that Robert Mueller

Democrats, the mainstream media, and left-wing reporters are twisting President Trump’s words in calling MS-13 illegal alien gang members “animals.” During a roundtable discussion of California’s sanctuary state laws, Fresno Sheriff Margaret Mims mentioned to Trump the difficulty of working with the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency to notify them of an illegal alien MS-13 gang member.

It took about five years or more for the Securities Exchange Commission to create a rule. They finally did so now we have a data set of about 225 public the traded companies.

Democrats in Iowa, like Democrats everywhere, have gone around the bend. Last Thursday, Tom Steyer, a leftist hypocrite of epic proportions, headlined a town hall in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. A woman in the audience said that she couldn’t see any difference between President Trump and Adolf Hitler. Steyer suggested that a fine distinction might be drawn, but added that the urgency to impeach Trump–a nationwide campaign that Steyer is spearheading–derives from the risk that if permitted to remain in office, Trump may murder millions: [Video] These people are crazy, obviously.
