WASHINGTON: ‘ Democrats clash with Kerry over Iran Deal ‘

#AceNewsReport – WASHINGTON:July.29: Democrats on the House Foreign Affairs Committee joined with Republicans in pushing back on the Iran nuclear deal Tuesday as Secretary of State John Kerry faced the panel.

Committee Ranking Member Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.) said he was “troubled by” and “very disappointed” with parts of the agreement, citing a litany of concerns.

“Truth is, after 15 years, Iran is a nuclear threshold state, which means they can produce weapons-grade, highly-enriched uranium without limitations,” he said. “Our friends in Israel are rightfully concerned.”

WASHINGTON: ‘ Obama Tests Democrats Loyalty over Iran Deal ‘

Off a contentious trade debate that highlighted Democratic divisions and infuriated Obama’s liberal base, even the Democrats most critical of the Iran deal are walking a fine line.

WASHINGTON: ‘ GOVERNMENT SHUT-DOWN OF DHS WOULD NOT STOP OBAMA ACTION ON IMMIGRATION ‘

#AceNewsServices – WASHINGTON:Dec.11 – Even if Republicans shut down the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) next year, President Obama could still carry out his executive actions giving legal status to up to 5 million undocumented immigrants.

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and other GOP leaders have punted the funding fight over Obama’s immigration action to February, arguing their new majority will have more leverage to stop the plan dead in its tracks.

WASHINGTON: ‘ DEMOCRATS LOSE GRIP ON VOTES TO HISPANICS ‘

#AceWorldNews – WASHINGTON – October 30 – Democrats have lost their grip on Hispanic voters heading into Election Day—and in turn could lose the Senate because of them.

Even though Latinos split heavily for their party in 2012, mounting evidence suggests Hispanics could sit the midterms out after immigration reform has fallen from the White House agenda.

WASHINGTON: ‘ FIRST AMENDMENT UNDER PRESSURE OF CHANGE AS FEC AND RAVEL TRY TO CURB FREE SPEECH ‘

#AceNewsServices – WASHINGTON – October 29 – Democrats on the Federal Election Commission (FEC) are planning to introduce new regulations regarding political content on the internet, in order to kill free speech and political dissent.

' The End of Free Speech: FEC Democrats Move to Kill Political Dissent '

‘ The End of Free Speech: FEC Democrats Move to Kill Political Dissent ‘

The decision of intent, which was announced late Friday, came about after an anti-Obama video posted to Youtube raised the ire of Democrats who found themselves powerless to stifle it as it was not a paid-for political ad, which would have brought it under existing FEC regulations.

Political content and advocacy posted free on the internet is not currently regulated by the FEC. Ann M. Ravel, who is a Obama-appointed Democrat and Vice Chair of the commission, is pushing to introduce regulations that will, effectively, govern all political materials on the internet. “A reexamination of the commission’s approach to the internet and other emerging technologies is long over due,” Ravel says. The three Republicans on the six-member commission – including Chairman Lee E. Goodman, are resisting the call for more regulation. They argue that, if regulation is extended to cover even unpaid political advertising, then blogs, politically active news websites and all other politically-motivated speech on the web will be curtailed. “This freedom has gained wide acceptance, as evidenced by the hundreds of thousands of political videos, websites, blogs and other social media…” the three wrote in a dissenting statement. ”

They added that the shift in policy suggested by Ravel and supported by the other Democrats on the commission “could threaten the continued development of the Internet’s virtual free marketplace of political ideas and democratic debate.”

Speaking to Fox News, Goodman said “I have been warning that my Democratic colleagues were moving to regulate media generally and the Internet specifically for almost a year now.” Ravel is due to take over the FEC Chair next year. Goodman has warned, previously, that Democrats at the FEC are intent upon tighter regulation of the media.

The First Amendment to the United States Constitution specifically forbids Congress from passing legislation which abridges freedom of speech and of the press. Further, it protects the rights of citizens to “petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” This last phrase exactly encapsulates the purpose of political dissent.

As with most federal government agencies, the FEC – or, at least, the Democrats at the FEC – are overstepping their authority by attempting to extend their own powers far beyond constitutional limitations.

MID-TERM FEVER ‘ SELF PROCLAIMED CLINTON OBAMACRAT’S TURN ON CHARM OFFENSIVE ‘

#AceBreakingNews – UNITED STATES – October 19 – Self-proclaimed Clinton Democrats are struggling this election cycle, and not even their powerful namesakes may be enough to save them.

Both Bill and Hillary Clinton have tried to turn on their charms to help centrist Democrats in Kentucky and Arkansas.

But as candidates in both states are slipping, help from the party’s pre-eminent power couple is falling short.

WASHINGTON: ‘DEMOCRATS PRAYING IN THEIR FIGHT AGAINST THE REPUBLICANS ‘

#AceNewsServices – UNITED STATES (Washington) – October 19 – Party leaders have invested heavily in their field operations to try and break the historical trend of the party in control of the White House losing seats.

Republican Vs Democrats

‘DEMOCRATS PRAYING IN THEIR FIGHT AGAINST THE REPUBLICANS ‘

With polls giving Republicans the edge in voter enthusiasm, and President Obama’s approval ratings in the tank, Democrats are hoping a robust get-out-the vote operation will preserve their fragile Senate majority and stave off double-digit losses in the House.

“The big meta-question out of all of this is can the Democrats use voter mobilization to overcome the inherent difficulties they have in midterm elections?” said University of Florida Professor Michael McDonald, who runs the United States Elections Project.

High turnout might be Democrats’ only hope, with recent polls showing Democrats trailing slightly in the states that will determine the Senate majority: Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Iowa and Louisiana.

Republicans need to win a net of six Senate seats to seize control of the upper chamber, and most election models give them the edge.

Republicans are also targeting a number of swing House districts carried narrowly by Obama that have leaned Republican in non-presidential years.

Democrats argue they’ll outperform the polls by at least one to two points in a number of races by turning out voters who typically stay home in midterm years.

Every time one of their candidates has fallen behind in public polls, Democratic strategists have pointed to the ground game as the difference-maker.

‘ Democrats Unveil Change to First Amendment Freedom’s ‘

#AceNewsServices – WASHINGTON – September 29 – Senate Democrats at a press conference on September 09 unveiled a constitutional amendment designed to alter First Amendment freedoms argued that their effort is both non-partisan and absolutely essential to advance the agenda of the Democratic Party.

“We are here today to overturn Citizens United,” said Sen. Tom Udall (D., N.M.), the amendment’s author.

' US Citizens United '

‘ US Citizens United ‘

However, the language of the amendment does not specifically address Citizens United, and would not require Congress to address the issues raised in the case.

Rather, legislators would be given free rein to enact restrictions on political speech as they see fit. Given efforts by Reid and others to demonize Republican donors, conservatives voiced concerns about the consequences of campaign finance regulators uninhibited by any constitutional limitations.

Speakers claimed that even a majority of Republican voters support their proposal. However, they also stressed that campaign finance reform, and Udall’s amendment specifically, is a prerequisite for the advancement of key Democratic policy priorities, including a minimum wage hike, stringent environmental regulations, and income redistribution.

“If people think this is some kind of esoteric issue, not related to jobs and the economy and wages and women’s rights and income and wealth inequality and healthcare and global warming, you are deadly wrong,” said Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.), one of the amendment’s cosponsors.

Sanders and others at the event billed the measure as an attempt to roll back the 2010 Supreme Court decision in Citizens United v. FEC, which removed limits on electioneering and express advocacy communications. However, the constitutional amendment’s language is far more sweeping, leading some to suggest that the ruling is being used as a way to rally support for far stricter regulations on political speech.

Merely rolling back Citizens United would not affect many of the groups frequently demonized by Democratic campaign finance reformers.

' Americans for Prosperity '

‘ Americans for Prosperity ‘

Americans for Prosperity, for example, has engaged this cycle almost exclusively in issue ads, not electioneering communications or express advocacy.

Such groups were permitted to do the same even prior to the Citizens United ruling, explained campaign finance attorney Jason Torchinsky.

“What non-PAC groups have done with issue ads outside the 30/60 day windows this cycle weren’t impacted by Citizens United,” Torchinsky said in an email. “Non-PAC groups were airing issue ads before [Citizens United] was decided, and if it were repealed or reversed groups would continue to do issue ads and speak out about matters of public policy.”

The language of the amendment would empower Congress to “regulate and set reasonable limits on the raising and spending of money by candidates and others to influence elections.”

If enacted, the amendment would allow Congress to regulate any expenditure—even those made by individual voters—aimed at convincing others to vote a certain way. Because in-kind spending is considered an expenditure under federal law, any activity by any person designed to “influence elections” could fall under Congress’ purview.

Opponents of the constitutional amendment say that amounts to nothing short of the de facto repeal of the First Amendment.

‘ New GOP Bill Grants Obama Administration Right to Train and Equip Members of Syrian Opposition ‘

#AceBreakingNews – UNITED STATES (Washington) – A new GOP bill would specifically grant the Obama administration limited Title X authority, which would allow it to establish a centre to train and equip members of the Syrian opposition.

The measure includes several provisions intended to satisfy Republicans and Democrats worried about giving the administration blanket authority to arm and train rebel groups, who would be used in the fight against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

‘ House Passes Legislation 247 – 167 Allowing People to Keep Their Insurance Plans Under Obamacare’

#AceBreakingNews – UNITED STATES (Washington) – September 12 – The House passed legislation Thursday to allow people to keep their insurance plans under ObamaCare even if the coverage doesn’t meet all of its requirements The Hill reported. 

Twenty-five Democrats broke ranks to help pass the bill, 247-167, including Reps. John Barrow (Ga.), Nick Rahall (W.Va.) and Kyrsten Sinema (Ariz.), who are among the most vulnerable incumbents running for re-election this year.

The vote offered those Democrats an opportunity to distance themselves from the president on the still-controversial Affordable Care Act. 

A proposal by Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) that would let people keep cheap group health plans outlawed by ObamaCare would bring in more than $1 billion in tax revenue over the next decade, according to a report released by the Congressional Budget Office on Tuesday.

` House of Democratic Leaders Cannot Help but Criticise Investigation of Benghazi ‘

 

#AceGuestNews – BENGHAZI – May 10 – House Democratic leaders have been unstinting in their criticism of the select committee established this week to investigate the aftermath of the 2012 attack on an American compound in Benghazi, Libya. Now they are facing a touch choice about whether to join it, cautiously weighing which strategy would be riskier politically and whether their instinct to boycott the select committee might just give it more power in the end.

 Nancy Pelosi

Democratic leaders have called the new committee “a political ploy,” a “stunt,” a “sham,” a “waste of taxpayer dollars” and, in the words of White House spokesman Jay Carney, “a blatantly political and partisan effort.” This week, two arms of the party, the Democratic National Committee and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committeelaunched a coordinated messaging blitz to undermine the committee and cast Republicans as political opportunists who have established the select committee only because of their interest in raising money and exciting the GOP base before the 2014 midterm elections.

Should Democrats now take part in this thing they view as a non-serious exercise in pandering to the right? House Democrats met behind closed doors Friday morning to discuss their options, but emerged with no clear answer on how to proceed.

In the case of reopening an investigation into the events of Sept. 11, 2012, in Libya, Democrats are stuck in a damned-if-they-do, damned-if-they-don’t scenario. That’s left the caucus torn on what to do.

There’s a vocal chorus of Democrats urging Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to boycott the committee altogether. Appointing members to the committee would lend credibility to the investigation, they fear, and it would force Democrats to risk being pawns in a Republican political game.

“If you’re going to have a hanging,” said Assistant Democratic Leader James Clyburn, one of the leading opponents to participating, “don’t ask me to bring the noose.”

Democrats point to the fact that four other bipartisan committees have already investigated the Benghazi attack and that one of those lines of inquiry — the Government Oversight Committee’s investigation — remains ongoing.

But if Democrats don’t appoint panel members — the resolution the House approved Thursday night would give them five slots on the committee — they will give up having any authority over the process and the messaging from each hearing. Not participating would grant Republicans monopoly control over the tone of the hearings and the information provided during the proceedings. Republicans would be the only lawmakers posing questions to the witnesses. Democrats would risk of having entire news cycles dominated by Republican-driven messaging.

“We need to be there to be sure that when Republicans abuse their power, point it out then and there that they’re abusing their power,” California Democratic Rep. Henry Waxman told National Journal.

Democrats, then, face a choice: Risk legitimizing a Republican-led hearing they think is a charade, or grant total control of the content and the message to Republicans. It’s a decision they’re not ready to make.

“We need to make a judgement about how dangerous they can be about their misrepresentation of the facts of the committee,” Pelosi told reporters Friday after her meeting with the caucus.

For now, Democratic leaders say they will withhold judgment until they’re satisfied with negotiations with Boehner over how the hearings will be conducted. Members of Pelosi’s staff have been in ongoing talks with Boehner’s over the role the Democratic members would play if they chose to join the hearing. At issue, Pelosi said Friday, is whether Democratic committee members will have a say when it comes to issuing subpoenas, calling witnesses and releasing documents to the public. Pelosi said she would base her decision on the outcome of talks with Boehner over the next several days.

This week’s round of talks did not bode well for a speedy resolution. Pelosi on Friday rejected a proposed “Memorandum of Understanding” from Boehner’s staff that outlined ground rules, calling them “fundamentally unfair” in a letter sent to Boehner. Pelosi’s letter indicated, however, that she would be open to further negotiations.

Republicans, meanwhile, aren’t waiting for Democrats to make a decision. On Friday, Boehner announced the names of the seven Republicans who had been appointed to the committee, which will be chaired by South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy, a 16-year veteran prosecutor. The other members include Kansas Rep. Mike Pompeo, Illinois Rep. Peter Roskam, Indiana Rep. Susan Brooks, Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, Alabama Rep. Martha Roby and Georgia Rep. Lynn Westmoreland.

“I  expect this committee to carry out an investigation worthy of the American lives lost in Benghazi,” Boehner said in a statement. “I also urge my Democratic colleagues to treat this tragedy with the proper respect and appoint members so that we can finally, on a bipartisan basis, get answers, provide accountability, and help deliver justice.”

` Senate Republicans Block Democrats Bill to Raise Minimum Federal Wage to $10.10 Per Hour ‘

#AceWorldNews – WASHINGTON – April 30 – Senate Republicans blocked a Democratic bill to raise the minimum Federal wage on Wednesday.

The measure’s rejection, while anticipated, was a blow to US President Barack Obama in an election-year bill.

The legislation would have raised the standard $7.25 an hour to $10.10 an hour – a move which Democratic legislators argue would have pushed a one-child family above the poverty line.

Republicans argued that it would have cost jobs in the long-term as it would have been too expensive for employers to maintain.

` John Boehner Reportedly Insisted There is No Conspiracy to Push an Immigration Bill Through the House '

#AceNewsServices – UNITED STATES – House Speaker John Boehner reportedly insisted Tuesday there is no “conspiracy” to push an immigration bill through the House – but a top Democrat suggested not only is there a deal in the works, it’s an open secret.

The conflicting messages further blurred the status of immigration talks on Capitol Hill.

Boehner just two months ago appeared to slam the brakes on negotiations altogether, blaming the administration’s failure to enforce existing immigration laws.

But GOP leaders, including Boehner, have signalled lately they’re at least interested in bringing back a bill.

Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer, at an immigration event Monday in New York, went further and seemed to claim a bill is in the works.

(The Hill) – Boehner last week told a home-town Rotary Club in Ohio that many of his colleagues “take the path of least resistance” rather than make hard choices like confronting a broken immigration system.

“Here’s the attitude. ‘Ohhhh. Don’t make me do this. Ohhhh. This is too hard,’” Boehner said in a high-pitched voice, likening his fellow Republicans to a small child.

On Tuesday, meeting with Republicans after they returned from a two-week recess, Boehner told lawmakers it was just a little teasing.

“There was no mocking,” he told reporters at a press conference after the meeting. “You all know me. You tease the ones you love, alright?

But some people misunderstood what I had to say, and I wanted to make sure members understood that the biggest impediment we have to moving immigration reform is that the American people don’t trust the president to enforce or implement the law that we may or may not pass.

“I have said it here; it’s the truth, and the members know it’s the truth,” Boehner added.

The Speaker drew immediate criticism from conservatives in the conference, who suggested they didn’t take his remarks as a joke.

” In the US Political System Being Right All The Time is Becoming The Key Issue”

#AceNewsServices says l pick this article up whilst browsing through a number of posts, and thought this sums up “US Political System” it is by a man called F Eric Saunders and was first published on  January 16, 2012. What l found so interesting was how right he was ,without knowing how close he was to the #truth.

Obama's Right About What? He writes as follows: 

Someone close to me recently remarked that, in his opinion, it is a serious problem that the Republicans in congress are refusing to cooperate and compromise with the President to “get anything done”.  He was, of course, just mimicking the latest load of manure being spread by the progressive/liberal media machine.  Apparently, the “plan” this time is to propose a bunch of radical legislation that will get us further into debt while doing nothing to alleviate our current problems, quietly refuse to even consider any of the proposed alternatives, and then to cry “foul” and “obstructionism” as often and as loudly as they can.  (“If you tell a lie often enough it becomes the truth.”)  Propaganda works!  But if you really understand what Progressives want to “get done”, then you probably think it would be tantamount to treason TO cooperate with them.  Indeed, I am frequently quite annoyed at our Republican representatives for going TOO FAR to compromise with the evil agenda.

A LOT of people, including most of our more recent gaggle of Republican presidential candidates, just don’t get it.  They seem to think that one candidate is pretty much the same as another – with just minor difference about how they would “tweek” the system.  People think that it is OK to vote for the man (or woman) they like best, while ignoring their underlying agenda.  But, in fact the Fabian/Alinsky bunch is trying their very best to take our country in exactly the wrong direction.  The “sameness” between the Republicans and Democrats is merely a result of the fact that “progressives” have to move very slowly, else people will rebel at having their freedoms taken away too suddenly – while the “conservatives” have to kowtow to the progressives by compromising with them regarding big government largess, else people will rebel at having their “entitlements” reduced, and then the conservatives would NEVER get elected.  After all, candidates get elected by what they promise, don’ they?

Approval is expected Jan. 6, the day the Senate returns from winter recess. The 67-year-old Yellen will become the first woman to lead the Fed in its century-old history. She will also be the first Democrat to lead the Fed since Paul Volcker left in 1987. Yellen is currently vice chair of the Fed. Bernanke told reporters that Yellen supported the Fed’s decision this week to gradually reduce the monthly bond purchases the Fed has been making to goose the economy. The move comes amid signs the economy is improving.” [AP]
