A Wisconsin state senator was cited for disorderly conduct and making a scene inside a Wells Fargo bank on Friday.
WISN reports Lena Taylor, a Democratic state senator representing Milwaukee, became enraged and berated a teller who refused to cash a $831 check because she did not have sufficient funds in her account.
In a stunning defeat for President Barack Obama on Thursday, the House passed a bill limiting Obama's plan to resettle 10,000 Syrian refugees in New Orleans in 2016.
Obama had threatened to veto any such bill that crossed his desk. But that was before 47 of his own Democrats joined with all but 2 Republicans to pass the bill.
The Democrats can breathe a sigh of relief. Vice President Joe Biden is out of the running for the Democratic presidential nomination. Biden had no chance of being nominated anyway, but we all could have used the laughs.
With his wife, Jill, and President Barack Obama at his side in the White House Rose Garden, Biden said the window for a successful campaign "has closed," noting his family's grief following the death of his son, Beau.
Still, Biden positioned himself as a defender of the Obama legacy and made clear he views himself as the best possible successor to the President. In tone, the remarks sounded like the kind of speech defending staunch Democratic values that he might have given had he reached the opposite conclusion.
Face it, billionaire real estate developer Donald Trump will be the next president of the United States, whether you like it or not.
President Barack Obama and the Democratic party suffered a massive blow during the midterm elections on Tuesday.
Despite opening the borders and busing in large numbers of illegal voters from Mexico and Honduras, the Democrats still lost key Senate seats in Iowa, North Carolina, Colorado, Arkansas, South Dakota, Montana and West Virginia -- allowing the Republicans to seize control of the Senate for the first time in 8 years.
Black Chicagoans took to the streets Friday to protest the Obama Administration for funding the exodus of illegal immigrants from Mexico and Honduras while ignoring the plight of poor blacks in Chicago.
President Barack Obama is rethinking his stance on immigration reform after House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (REP) lost in a GOP Primary to a Tea Party Challenger on Tuesday.
Cantor's stunning defeat sent shockwaves through Washington yesterday as Republicans, and even Democrats, sat up and took notice.
Many say Cantor thought he was too much of a big shot in Washington to return home to Virginia to personally campaign against Dave Brat, an economics professor.
Cantor is the first sitting House Majority leader to lose in a primary in the history of American politics.
The defeat sent a strong signal to Washington that Americans are fed up with Washington's politics -- particularly on immigration reform.
The fallout over the House refusal to back Obama's closing of Gitmo continues. For whatever reason (low ratings, etc.) the mainstream media is finally beginning to shine a light on some of Barack Hussein Obama's questionable policy decisions.
Obama's decision to close Gitmo, which he made on his 2nd day in office, stands out as the one decision that should have raised all sorts of red flags for Americans. Simply because it exposed Obama's true agenda, and revealed who he owed his allegiance to.
Read the following excerpt from TheAtlantic.com's post titled "A setback of his own." This excerpt mirrors everything I have been saying about Obama kissing up to terrorists from day 1! Some of you laughed it off because all you could see was the color of Obama's skin:
But the President, and his senior advisers, bear at least some responsibility for the grand gesture of promising to shut down Guantanamo Bay within a year well before the administration had begun to review the casebooks and intelligence reports about the 240 odd detainees in United States custody. The shrewdness of Obama's executive order on day two cannot be denied, nor can its targeted audience - European and Arab governments, and the broader world - be ignored in the current debate. Gitmo was a "rallying cry" for Al Qaeda - that line's for public consumption - and for anti-Americanism abroad, for European smugness, for exasperation with America by Moslems everywhere.

Obama -- who has never run a lemonade stand much less a government -- came into office with a full blown superiority complex, making dangerous ill-informed decisions that put this country's national security at risk. He ran roughshod over the Defense Dept., and the CIA without nary a working plan in place to implement his wacky agenda. A white president making the same parallel gov. moves Obama has made would have been run out of Washington by now.
