Rep. Steve Scalise Survives Assassination Attempt To Destroy Chuck Todd

Mollie Hemingway, The Federalist

The “Meet the Press” host decided to spend the entire aired portion of his interview with the House majority whip pushing gun control. For eight minutes, Todd focused on what he sees as Scalise’s political shortcomings, and badgered him to adopt the views of his political opponents. Scalise, for his part, spent the entirety of the interview making Todd look like the uninformed and naive partisan activist he is.

Dems Sifting The Air To Tie Vegas Shooting To Trump

Weak-Kneed Ryan Stalls National Concealed Carry Reciprocity

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan isn't "weak-kneed" on national reciprocity or rolling back Obama-era gun control and other anti-constitutional legislation, he's on the other side.

Fighting Fire With Fire

The problem with all of this establishment Republican virtue-signaling and the establishment media calls for civility is that they only go one way. Neither before nor after President Trump hit Brzezinski and Scarborough like a ton of bricks did anyone in the establishment call for civility to the President.

Al Weaver, Washington Examiner

There is plenty of work on Capitol Hill likely to erode this week's unity quickly. Senate Republicans are trying to pass healthcare legislation by the July 4th recess and are writing their bill behind closed doors.

Matthew Boyle, Breitbart

"Suddenly and miraculously Jeb Bush has gone silent. He & his cronies relentlessly smear Reagan conservatives but not a word about the pathetic House GOP leadership." 

Steve Scalise Must Go As House Republican Whip

Steve Scalise is either too dumb to be Republican Whip, or just plain lying about his association with David Duke's despicable racist organization, because none of what he has said about his association with Kenneth Knight, a leader of Duke's racist group has made the least bit of sense to anyone with even a low voltage BS detector.

Memo To House Republicans: If You Fund It You Own It

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

Those allegedly conservative Republicans who vote for the “CRomnibus” will own not just Obama's unconstitutional amnesty, they will also own a host of Obama's other destructive policies.

House Whip Race Reflects Repub. Study Comm.'s Competing Factions

Kristina Peterson and Janet Hook, Wall Street Journal

The race to become the House's next majority whip has shone a light on the Republican Study Committee, a once-exclusive club of the most conservative lawmakers that has expanded to encompass the GOP's many competing factions.

Kevin McCarthy is Much Worse Than Eric Cantor

Kevin McCarthy epitomizes all that’s wrong with Washington. McCarthy only votes with conservatives 42 percent of the time compared to 53 percent for Cantor. That's pathetic, dangerous, and the best possible reason to replace the entire House GOP leadership now.

House Repub. Leadership: Where are the Conservatives?

Rick Manning, The Hill

No conservative candidate has announced for the majority leader spot, & the alternative for whip, Steve Scalise, is just a Boehner cheerleader. After all the concerns about the direction that Boehner's team is taking the House, no one is rising up to the challenge now that the opportunity is present.
