Reps. Jordan, Pompeo: ‘The administration misled the public about the events in Benghazi’

House Benghazi Committee members Reps. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Mike Pompeo (R-Kansas) today released an addendum to the House Select Committee on Benghazi’s final report, as the two congressman believe the report released isn’t as hard-hitting as it ought to be. “Officials at the State Department, including Secretary Clinton, learned almost in real time that the attack in Benghazi was a terrorist attack. With the presidential election just 56 days away, rather than tell the American people the truth and increase the risk of losing an election, the administration told one story privately and a different story publicly. They publicly blamed ...

Call to thank your senators for giving us a voice in the direction of the Supreme Court!

President Obama is trying to bully the Senate into confirming Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court as part of his plan to stack the Court with a liberal majority that will undermine our most cherished rights. Merrick Garland would be the fifth vote on the Supreme Court to gut our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms and empower unaccountable bureaucrats at agencies like the IRS and EPA – he must be stopped! Even the liberal New York Times admits a Supreme Court with Merrick Garland would be “the most liberal in decades.” Fortunately, Senate Republicans, led by Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), are holding firm and ...

The Ex-Im Bank sends billions of our tax dollars to countries that violate human rights and undermine democracy – using our hard earned ...

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 ...
