Obama, press honeymoon is over

President Obama is losing his edge with the press.  The one-time media darling is now taking some heat over his administration’s lack of transparency and for freezing out and cracking down on reporters. A coalition of free press and First Amendment groups is going after the administration[1] by releasing a trove of critical letters, petitions, and statements. Last month, another three dozen groups wrote to the White House with concerns about censorship throughout government agencies. In response, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said the president was “unwavering” in his dedication to transparency. Unfortunately for Earnest, no ...

Obamacare Honeymoon Over for Capitol Hill Staffers

Remember how Obamacare was going to lower premiums, make health care and health insurance more affordable, etc. etc.? Well, it looks like Capitol Hill doesn’t believe its own hype: Dozens of lawmakers and aides are so afraid that their health insurance premiums will skyrocket next year thanks to Obamacare that they are thinking about retiring early or just quitting. The fear: Government-subsidized premiums will disappear at the end of the year under a provision in the health care law that nudges aides and lawmakers onto the government health care exchanges, which could make their benefits exorbitantly expensive. Democratic and Republican leaders ...

You Won’t Believe What Happened in GOP Conference Last Night

As you've probably heard from media reports by now, last night Rep. Paul Ryan gave a speech to his colleagues in the Republican Conference meeting that he would accept the job of Speaker of the House as long as he could be a unifying force AND as long as the 3 major factions in the House got behind him. Oh, and there's one other thing. He wants the Republican Conference to change the rules of the House to remove the power of Members to issue a motion to vacate the chair - which you'll recall is the mechanism that Mark Meadows of North Carolina used to ultimately force John Boehner to step down. So Paul Ryan wants to be Speaker as long as he can ...

House Conservatives Must Stick Together as a Bloc, Maximize Their Leverage and Strength

As the House Republican Conference works to elect a new Speaker, the media, the GOP establishment, and the talking heads continue to focus on personalities rather than principles. They miss the point entirely -- what’s important is not the who, but the what. They completely ignore the fact there is a thoroughly viable candidate in the race for Speaker – his name is Daniel Webster, and he’s actually had experience in a very similar situation, where he successfully reformed the processes and procedures of the Florida House of Representatives. The House Freedom Caucus, working together with grassroots conservatives and conservative organi...

The Freedom Thieves are Trying to Punish YOU

Having just returned from meetings with a few Congressmen on Capitol Hill, I felt it was important to give you an update. I will touch on what I mean by "freedom thieves" later in this email, but first I want to focus on our allies on Capitol Hill. Know this, that you have made a difference in the last 3 weeks. You helped amend the Patriot Act with Senator Lee's USA Freedom Act to stop the bulk metadata collection on US citizens, 34 House members voted no on the rule for TPA "fast track authority," you visited over 500 Congressional offices representing 10 Senators and 291 Congressmen last week calling for an end to the Congressional Exemption ...
