How Michigan Republicans Plan to Rig the 2016 Elections
Michigan is considering assigning its electoral votes by congressional district, according to a report by Bloomberg’s Dave Weigel, as part of a joint bill that if passed would give Republicans a significant advantage because Michigan’s congressional districts are gerrymandered to benefit Republicans. We take a look at how Republicans in Michigan are trying to legally rig the 2016 elections, in this Lip News clip with Jackie Koppell and Jo Ankier.

How a Bill Becomes a Law: Crash Course Government and Politics #9
Oh my, Craig has his work cut out for him this week. The process of how a bill becomes a law can be pretty complex, fraught with potential bill-death at every corner. As if just getting through committee isn’t difficult enough, bills have to navigate a series of amendments and votes in both houses, potentially more committees, further compromise bills, and even more floor votes, just to end up on the chopping block of the president. And then in one fell swoop the president can stop a bill in its tracks with a veto! But then again, a presidential veto isn’t necessarily a bill’s end either. As you can see we’ve got to lot to cover, and we’ll be the first to admit this has been covered before, and extraordinarily well might we add, by the folks at School House Rock. But we’ll give it our best shot - without the singing of course. Well, not too much singing anyway.

Democrat Congressman Turns Against Nancy Pelosi: ‘She’s Aloof, Frenetic and Misguided’
Republican views on House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi have evolved somewhat over time, as they used to despise her and want her silenced, but now they encourage the gaffe-prone Democratic leader to keep talking, as she only seems to help GOP re-election efforts. It would appear that Democrat views of Pelosi have shifted somewhat as well, as more than a few on the left have caught on to how Pelosi seems to be hurting their party more than she is helping it these days, and a few are even speaking out about it. In an interview with The Buffalo News, Democrat New York Rep. Brian Higgins from the Buffalo area made it clear that Pelosi no longer has his support for a continued role in the party’s leadership, which the 78-year-old California representative has held since 2003. “I will not support her,” stated Higgins. “She’s listening, but this is my conclusion: She’s aloof, frenetic and misguided.” Higgins has largely taken issue with the lack of a clear agenda or message from the Democrat Party — save for complete opposition to President Donald Trump — and has clashed with Pelosi over bills he supports that would expand Medicare and invest in infrastructure that he claims she has ignored. Very few Democrats have spoken out publicly against Pelosi, but Higgins implied that his voice represented many others in the Democratic caucus who have yet to publicly express their discontent with Pelosi’s leadership. “I’m giving voice to a frustration that I hear every single day,” stated Higgins. “It’s members. I don’t want to call anybody out. But this is the conversation that is taking place.” “Our leadership is out of touch with what is going on not only in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Michigan but in Cheektowaga, West Seneca, Hamburg, Orchard Park and Lancaster,” he continued, naming off formerly Democrat-controlled states and localities won by Trump in the 2016 election. “Democratic voters at least and voters writ large feel politically homeless, and it’s because we are not offering something affirmative to give people hope and something to invest in, in the way that we want to do things,” Higgins added. Though Higgins refrained from criticizing his New York senator and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, he did issue criticism for the light-on-details economic plan Schumer and Pelosi are pushing, which has been dubbed “A Better Deal.” “It’s thematic, it’s well-intentioned, but nobody’s buying it. It’s Washington-speak,” he said of the Democrats seemingly sole agenda item. Higgins proceeded to rattle off several names of House Democrats he would support as a leader of his party, and suggested that his party was in dire need of finding a strong leader and developing a clear message prior to the 2020 election cycle. “The only thing I have is a voice and a vote, and I have to use that to try to get my conference to recognize that resistance to Trump at best is only half of it. We have to offer something affirmative,” said Higgins. “We are not ready for 2020. We’re lacking a clear, coherent and compelling narrative,” he continued. A big part of that problem is Pelosi, as Higgins added, “When she’s on the floor, she’s all over the place; she’s frenetic. I think she lacks gravitas.” According to Fox News, Higgins now joins the small but growing number of Democrats who have publicly created distance between themselves and Pelosi. It remains to be seen if that relative handful of Democrats opposed to Pelosi’s continued leadership role will swell to the size necessary to actually oust her from the leadership, or if Republicans will continue to benefit from the minority leader’s ridiculous gaffes for another election cycle. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ◆ Latest news videos: https://goo.gl/BmTYua ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ★ CONNECT WITH US ★ ◆ Google+: https://goo.gl/HHKysp ◆ Email: quylao0711@gmail.com ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Videos can use content-based copyright law contains reasonable use Fair Use (https://www.youtube.com/yt/copyright/)
House Dems: It’s time for Michigan to invest in people
In advance of Gov. Rick Snyder’s delivery of his executive budget on Wednesday, House Democrats announced they would fight for a budget that refocuses Lansing’s attention toward everyday families, local communities and schools. Democrats proposed revenue savings by ending tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas, and holding state contractors accountable — like the Unemployment Insurance Agency Vendor that recently exposed the names, social security numbers and private data of nearly 2 million Michiganders. Protecting and preserving the Healthy Michigan plan, as well as criminal justice reform, are also top priorities.

Live: President Trump at Make America Great Again rally from Minnesota
President Trump held a boisterous campaign-style rally in Duluth, Minn., Wednesday night, his 14th trip to a state he narrowly lost since that 2016 election, according to CBS News' Mark Knoller's count. The topics covered ranged from the Inspector General's report into the Clinton email scandal, opening up mining in Superior National Forest, Immigration policy, and the friendly relationship President Trump claims to have with China's president, Xi Jinping. As-it-happened updates: https://www.cbsnews.com/media/trump-to-hold-rally-in-minnesota-live-updates/ The rally in Duluth was ostensibly for for Pete Stauber, a Republican congressional candidate running in the traditionally Democratic 8th District. Home of the state's famed Iron Range, Minnesota is important ground for Trump as a place where his new tariffs on foreign steel could play especially well. The GOP primary is set for Aug. 14. But Mr. Trump hasn't held back on his opinions of GOP incumbents he dislikes. The night before a primary for Republican Rep. Mark Sanford of North Carolina, the president blasted Sanford on Twitter and urged people to vote for his primary opponent. Sanford lost. On Capitol Hill Tuesday night, Mr. Trump again mocked Sanford in a meeting with House Republicans, reportedly calling him "nasty." -- Subscribe to the CBS News Channel HERE: http://youtube.com/cbsnews Watch CBSN live HERE: http://cbsn.ws/1PlLpZ7 Follow CBS News on Instagram HERE: https://www.instagram.com/cbsnews/ Like CBS News on Facebook HERE: http://facebook.com/cbsnews Follow CBS News on Twitter HERE: http://twitter.com/cbsnews Get the latest news and best in original reporting from CBS News delivered to your inbox.

Why John Boehner Was a Better Speaker than Paul Ryan: Justin Amash
Boehner openly despised the libertarian Republican from Michigan but actually allowed him and others to debate and vote freely. ---- Subscribe to our YouTube channel: http://youtube.com/reasontv Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Reason.Magaz... Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/reason Subscribe to our podcast at iTunes: https://goo.gl/az3a7a Reason is the planet's leading source of news, politics, and culture from a libertarian perspective. Go to reason.com for a point of view you won't get from legacy media and old left-right opinion magazines. ----- One Republican member of Congress who won't be sorry to see Speaker of the House Paul Ryan leave office is the libertarian-leaning Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.), who also served under John Boehner. Boehner famously had no use for Amash's principled stand on shrinking the size, scope, and spending of government and was known to swear ferociously at the Michigander. Yet Amash told Reason that compared to Ryan, "In many respects, Boehner was the better speaker." That's because Boehner believed in letting Congress actually debate, argue, and vote on amendments to legislation in a relatively open manner. Ryan, in contrast, controlled the process tightly and thus stifled the legislative process. In a recent interview with Reason's Nick Gillespie, Amash says: I would rather have the guy swearing at me and letting me have a vote than not considering me at all...Under [Ryan's] speakership, we've had the fewest open amendments of any speakership. We've had zero....Everything has to be pre-approved by the Speaker.... Under Boehner, you could walk up...and offer an amendment as long as it was germane to the bill, you got to vote on it. And this was true on basically all appropriations bills. Now, we don't even do appropriations bills. They come up with some omnibus bill and spring it on us at the last second and they say, 'This is the bill.' When asked how the Republican Party might be dragged in a more libertarian direction, Amash didn't miss a beat in suggesting that "you [need to] change the Speaker of the House and have a libertarian Speaker of the House." With Paul Ryan's departure in January 2019, that opportunity just might arrive. This interview was conducted at Reason Weekend, our annual donor event, which was held this year in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Michigan Protects Straight Ticket Voting and Voting Rights Laws In Recent Case
Procedures allowing Michigan voters to easily cast straight-ticket ballots look likely to remain in place for this fall's election after a federal appeals court refused to restore a law that would have ended the practice. A three-judge panel of the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals issued an opinion Wednesday declining the state's request to overturn a judge's order finding that the straight-ticket voting option was heavily relied on by African-Americans and that the state's attempt to ban it appears to violate both the U.S. Constitution and the Voting Rights Act. The dispute over the 2015 Michigan ban is one of numerous battles being fought out in federal courts over election-law changes that could affect the outcome of contests on the ballot this November. http://www.politico.com/blogs/under-the-radar/2016/08/straight-ticket-voting-michigan-court-ruling-227114 http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Mike Pompeo Confirmed Secretary Of State
Mike Pompeo is somehow worse than his predecessor Rex Tillerson.

Read more here: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/04/26/us/politics/mike-pompeo-secretary-of-state.html "WASHINGTON — The Senate easily confirmed Mike Pompeo on Thursday as the United States’ 70th secretary of state, elevating the current C.I.A. director and an outspoken foreign policy hawk to be the nation’s top diplomat. In the end, the 57-to-42 tally lacked the drama of other nail-biting confirmation votes in the Trump era. This week, Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, the nominee’s main Republican antagonist, bowed to pressure from President Trump to drop his objections. Ultimately, seven members of the Senate Democratic caucus — five of whom face re-election this year in states that Mr. Trump won in 2016 — joined a united Republican conference to support Mr. Pompeo’s confirmation. Shortly after the vote at the Capitol, Mr. Pompeo went across the street to the Supreme Court, where he was sworn in by Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. Mr. Pompeo then dashed to Joint Base Andrews, where a plane was waiting to fly him to Brussels for a meeting of NATO allies. Senior staff on the plane greeted him with applause.”* Hosts: Cenk Uygur, Mark Thompson Cast: Cenk Uygur, Mark Thompson *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.

Viewer made this point. But didn't they admit already that Al-Qaeda doesn't exist? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gzun4ehFjeA&sns=fb Washington (CNN) -- The Senate on Thursday passed a giant defense bill that includes a new policy for detaining and trying suspected al Qaeda terrorists -- a policy that attracted controversy during the debate and may draw a presidential veto. The defense authorization bill passed by a vote of 93-7. In keeping with budget cuts across the government, the $662 billion bill shrinks Pentagon spending by $43 billion from last year. It includes funding for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and sets policies for the various weapons systems and personnel programs at the Defense Department. Senate debate on the detainee matter was at times volatile and emotional. After years of struggling with issues of who should investigate, detain and try suspected terrorists -- civilian authorities and courts or the military and its tribunal system -- Armed Services Committee Chair Carl Levin, D-Michigan, and ranking Republican John McCain of Arizona reached a long-sought compromise to codify the process. However, critics complained the deal was weighted toward the military because it required any suspected al Qaeda terrorists, even those captured inside the U.S., to be held potentially indefinitely by the military. That concerned the White House and many lawmakers who think the responsibility belongs, in part, to law enforcement agencies and the federal courts and warned that Americans could possibly be detained indefinitely by the military. Levin and McCain denied their bill would allow for the indefinite detention of U.S. citizens. "This country is special because we have certain values, and due process of law is one of those values," Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein, D-California, argued on the Senate floor. "I object to holding American citizens without trial. I do not believe that makes us more safe." "You have people on the left who hate saying 'the war on terror,'" responded Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina. "They would never ever use the military and always insist the law enforcement be used because they don't buy into the idea that we're at war. They want to criminalize the war." Senators ultimately reached an agreement to amend the bill to make clear it's not the bill's intent to allow for the indefinite detention of U.S. citizens and others legally residing in the country. "It would provide the assurance that we are not adversely affecting the rights of American citizens in this language," Levin said while expressing support for the compromise. "It supports present law," Feinstein added. Senators from both parties also challenged the Obama administration's policies toward Iran, unanimously approving an amendment insisting on tough new sanctions against Iran's Central Bank and entities that do business with it. Senators want to punish Iran over its pursuit of a nuclear weapons programs and the recent storming of the British Embassy in Tehran. The administration complained the Senate amendment would make it difficult for the White House to manage a delicate foreign policy matter. Also Thursday, the Senate approved on a voice vote a Democratic amendment requiring President Barack Obama to develop a plan to expedite the troop withdrawal from Afghanistan, which is scheduled to be completed in 2014. While it's not clear the amendment will force any actual acceleration of the withdrawal, Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Oregon, said the Senate vote was a "message" to the president that U.S. troops have successfully performed their mission of stamping out al Qaeda and the 9-11 terrorists and "it's time to bring our men and women home." The measure still needs to go to conference for reconciliation with the House version of the bill.

Jon Runyan - The Millionaires
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) continues on offense, releasing new online ads — titled "The Millionaires" — to expose twenty-three Republican Members of Congress who are about to vote for another tax cut for millionaires at the expense of the middle class and seniors. The new advertising begins today in the districts of twenty-three vulnerable House Republicans as part of the DCCC's "Drive for 25" campaign to win the Majority. With 100 days until Election Day, House Republicans will vote this week to give people making more than $1 million a year another $130,000 tax break, according to the Tax Policy Center, and once again double down on their failed priorities instead of protecting the middle class and seniors. This past weekend, the DCCC held "Middle Class First" grassroots events in 19 congressional districts to expose Republicans' plans to put millionaires over the middle class. "Democrats are on offense again as House Republicans vote this week to protect tax breaks for millionaires instead of strengthening the middle class," said DCCC Chairman Steve Israel. "Under House Republicans' top-down economics, millionaires, corporations that outsource jobs, Big Oil and special interests get a $130,000 tax break which we can't afford. Democrats are holding Republicans accountable for their misplaced priorities and the heat is on House Republicans for putting millionaires and special interests first, and the middle class and seniors last."
