Another "progressive" group without their feet held to the fire. Aren´t they the main group backing Judd?

I look at their nastiness and fail to see why they keep advancing. Oh yeah money.

Her family came here from Taiwan so I assume they were nationalist Chinese to begin with. Her father is a shipping magnate so it is natural that his company does some business with China. I don´t think this is any rags to riches story. Not that it makes any difference. The inference was political and outrageous.

I guess I´m one of the those LowInfo types. Why? I frankly never knew that Elaine Chao was McConnell´s wife.

Am I the only one who finds this news disturbing? "Separation of Powers?" Really?

And what exactly does Mitch expect from a "Democratic Kentucky super PAC?" I´m surprised they´re not supporting him.

It´s not racism if you hate the Chinese. They are not one of the Left´s protected groups.

I´ve been to the far east a half-dozen times or so. I can tell you, #2, that those from Taiwan are those who lost literally everything when they fled mainland China in the early 1950s. So, yeah, it is a ´rags to riches´ story.

If Dingy Harry had an Asian wife and the Nevada Republicans did what the Kentucky Democrats did to Ciao, it would have been front and center in the media, including the front page of the New York Times.

But because it was done to a Republican´s wife - crickets.

Now it hits home. Finally a Republican makes a fist. If this keeps up we might eventually hear about Nancy Pelosi´s lobbyist husband, and Fienstein and Boxer and Harry Reid´s sons and how they made money in real estate thanks to HIM.

Over the past two years, investigations conducted by the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel have uncovered a whole slew of shady tactics being used in operations conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. During their research, Sentinel reporters found ATF agents prey on mentally ill teenagers (including ATF agents pressuring at least one young man to get a squid tattooed on his neck) to "help" with gun stings and found agents lost a fully automatic rifle on the streets of Milwaukee after it was stolen out of an unsupervised government vehicle. Careless actions from agents also resulted in thousands of dollars

A new study documents the bleak plight of Americans who have been unemployed for more than six months: Just 11 percent of them, on average, will ever regain steady full-time work. The findings by three Princeton University economists show the extent to which the long-term unemployed have been shunted to the sidelines of the U.S. economy since the Great Recession. The long-term jobless number 3.8 million, or 37 percent of all unemployed Americans. "The long-term unemployed are more than twice as likely" to stop looking for a job than to find one, according to the paper co-written by Alan Krueger,

A lively Hillary Clinton revealed details today on her upcoming memoir in regards to her experiences at the State Department — jokingly telling a crowd of publishers in New York City it would be “just another light summer read” with the funny title “Bossy Pantsuit.” Clinton said the book would discuss many of the challenges the United States faces in the 21st century, including the crisis in Crimea and Climate Change. But the former Secretary of State added that she’s yet to decide on a name for the book — due to come out on June 1 — but admitted

Mississippi’s GOP senate primary is quickly becoming ground zero in 2014 for the fight between the establishment and the conservative grassroots for control of the Republican Party’s future. The state’s former governor Haley Barbour’s establishment political machine is in full swing running defense for incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran. Cochran is facing the fight of his political life from surging primary challenger two-term state Sen. Chris McDaniel. What has until now largely been a battle between Cochran and McDaniel facing off head-to-head is turning into the front line of the brutal and bloody political war between the Chamber of Commerce-style lobbyist

BERKELEY, CA -- Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) received a warm welcome from a packed audience at the University of California-Berkeley on Wednesday afternoon, as he addressed the Berkeley Forum at International House. Paul´s message of investigating and restraining the Central Intelligence Agency and other security arms of the federal government went down well on a campus that was the core of the anti-war movement in the Vietnam era. Yet there were quite a few conservative Republicans in the audience as well, on hand to hear one of their party´s new leaders--and, many expect, a likely contender for the presidential nomination

If you hate paying taxes, pay attention to where you live. Residents of the nation´s lowest-tax states pay less than one-quarter of the levies contributed by those in the highest-tax states. And that´s even when they earn the same amount and spend the same amount on everything from housing to beer, according to an analysis by personal finance site WalletHub. The site looked at 10 different taxes, from property and state and local income taxes to those on vehicles, food, alcohol, fuel, telecommunications and sales. The total tax hit was based on a hypothetical individual earning $65,596, with a $174,600

It began during the weekend with a surprise email from the White House: Six local TV anchors and camera crews from around the country discovered they’d been invited to interview President Obama on Wednesday, and receive VIP briefings from top Obama advisers. They had not requested the interviews. But Obama wanted to spend four minutes with each reporting team to discuss the minimum wage and the March 31 deadline for Affordable Care Act enrollment. He also reassured KARE-TV anchor Julie Nelson during their sit-down that “ultimately we’re not going to go to war with Russia. The Ukrainians don’t want that.

WASHINGTON - Robert S. “Bob” Strauss, the colorful Dallas lawyer who became one of the nation’s top political figures as Democratic Party chairman and later held high governmental posts under presidents of both parties, died Wednesday of natural causes at his home in Washington D.C. He was 95. In a town of transitory acquaintances and over-sized egos, Strauss developed personal ties to leading Democrats and Republicans and a unique standing that enabled him to survive the twists and turns of political fate. He advised presidents of both parties from Lyndon B. Johnson to George W. Bush and was named to

I’ve been promised by our director that I’m — or producer or somebody is going to get me the CD,” he said. “DVD,” an audience member corrected him, to chuckles. “Whatever. I’m a little technologically challenged. The DVD. The point is I’m going to watch it this weekend,” Obama joked. The First Lady and the Obamas’ daughters are on their way

The words came out of my mouth before I could stop them. “I feel sorry for Obama,” I said. As my wife looked at me in disbelief, I quickly added a correction. “Well, almost.” Beset by failures at home and abroad, the president cuts a lonely and sad figure these days. His aura of grief reflects his profound loss. His worldview crashed headlong into reality, and reality won. Obamaism is dead, may it rest in peace. That’s sad for him, but hold the tears — his loss is mankind’s hope. If Obama wakes from his utopian visions and faces the

Has President Obama´s impunity come to an end? After five years of his flouting the letter and spirit of the law in an increasingly brazen fashion, congressional Republicans have been starting to ramp up their rhetoric about Obama´s lawlessness, their most concerted effort on the issue to date. Several new reports from top Republicans underscore the breadth of Obama´s executive overreach. Viewed comprehensively, it involves laws ranging from healthcare to immigration to privacy to technology to social issues to national security matters and more.

First Lady Michelle Obama will be accompanied by her children and her mother on her trip to China, which begins today. But she won´t be accompanied by the press. "Michelle Obama’s trip to China starting on Wednesday will be nonpolitical, the White House says, a ´people-to-people exchange´ emphasizing the importance that both nations place on education. As if to underscore the point, no reporters are traveling with the first lady, and she does not plan to give interviews while there," reports the New York Times. The White House is defending the first lady bringing her family along for the ride by saying

White House executive pastry chef Bill Yosses is resigning after First Lady Michelle Obama fundamentally changed his job duties to focus on healthier food. Yosses is leaving the White House in June to work on a new project focusing on “food literacy” and The New York Times says Michelle is “partly to blame.” The openly gay chef was hired by Laura Bush in 2007 to make his trademark cookie plates and sugar sculptures. Mrs. Obama took over in 2009 and ordered Yosses to make healthier plates in smaller portions. (Snip) “I don’t want to demonize cream, butter, sugar and eggs,”

Health industry officials say ObamaCare-related premiums will double in some parts of the country, countering claims recently made by the administration. The expected rate hikes will be announced in the coming months amid an intense election year, when control of the Senate is up for grabs. The sticker shock would likely bolster the GOP’s prospects in November and hamper ObamaCare insurance enrollment efforts in 2015. The industry complaints come less than a week after Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius sought to downplay concerns about rising premiums in the healthcare sector. She told lawmakers rates would increase in 2015 but

Government officials now admit the data system and transponder quit communicating after the pilots said things were OK. That means they didn’t lie. The official Malaysian account of the last contacts made to and received by Flight MH370 is unraveling. As it does, the sinister interpretations of what happened in the cockpit of the Boeing 777 become less persuasive. We return to the all-important timeline. Originally, the Malaysians said that the last words from the cockpit—from the copilot, “All right, good night”—were spoken to air traffic controllers as the airplane left Malaysian air space at 1:30am. This week, that timing was significantly changed
