What We Need in Our Next Speaker of the House –Rep. Steve King

The House of Representatives will decide the destiny of the Republican Party and the nation when we select a new speaker.

As the people’s House, it is our duty to be the voice of the American people, and in the last few years, the voters have not been heard. Our next speaker needs to offer a bold vision that inspires our conference as well as the American people we represent.

We will not find that speaker in a rushed process lacking full and open dialogue. A leader will mirror the process by which he or she is selected, and this country needs someone to open the House back up to the people it serves.

From Governor Scott Walker 9/21/15

As a kid, I was drawn to Ronald Reagan because he was a Republican and a conservative. But most of all, I admired him because of his eternal optimism in the American people.
That thought came into my head when we were all standing at the Reagan Library last Wednesday. President Reagan was good for America because he was an optimist.
Sadly, the debate taking place in the Republican party today is not focused on that optimistic view of America. Instead, it has drifted into personal attacks.
In the end, I believe that voters want to be for something and not against someone. Instead of talking about how bad things are, we want to hear about how we can make them better for everyone.
We need to get back to the basics of our party:
We are the party that believes that people create jobs - not the government - and the best way to grow the economy is to get the government out of the way and build it from the ground up.
We are the party that believes that the way to measure success in government is by how many people are no longer dependent on the government - because we ultimately believe in the dignity of work.
We are the party that believes that a strong military leads to peace through strength and that will protect our children and future generations - we believe that good will triumph over evil.
We are the party that believes in the American people - and not the federal government.
These ideas will help us win the election next fall and - more importantly - these ideas will help make our country great again.
To refocus the debate will require leadership. While I was sitting in church yesterday, the pastor’s words reminded me that the Bible is full of stories about people who were called to be leaders in unusual ways.
Today, I believe that I am being called to lead by helping to clear the race so that a positive conservative message can rise to the top of the field. With that in mind, I will suspend my campaign immediately.
I encourage other Republican presidential candidates to consider doing the same so the voters can focus on a limited number of candidates who can offer a positive conservative alternative to the current frontrunner. This is fundamentally important to the future of the party and - ultimately - to the future of our country.
This is a difficult decision as so many wonderful people stepped up to support our efforts. Tonette and I are so very thankful for the many outstanding volunteers and the excellent staff who helped us throughout the campaign. You have become like family to us.
And speaking of family, I want to personally thank my wife Tonette - who has been a rock - as well as our amazing sons Matt and Alex. I thank my parents, my brother David and his family - and all of our other family and friends for their love and support.
Most of all, I want to thank God for His abundant grace. Win or lose, it is more than enough for any of us.
Thank you.

On the 14th Anniversary of 9/11 September 11, 2015 By Gary Sinise

Today is September 11, 2015. It is hard to believe that 14 years ago this morning, America endured one of her darkest moments. On that terrible September day, our country was thrust into a war that still continues. Our troops remain in Afghanistan and we have redeployed to Iraq to support the fight against ISIS. This morning while saying a prayer for those lost on 9/11, I also think back to my first visit with the troops in Iraq in June, 2003. While there, I met a man who changed my life and became a very dear friend. He is a retired New York City firefighter and former United States Marine, John Vigiano.

Why Is the FBI Trying to Bury a Special Forces War Hero?

Two Senate committees led by Republicans—the Judiciary Committee under Chuck Grassley and the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs under Ron Johnson—are demanding answers from the FBI and Army to determine how this decorated combat veteran, one of the first heroes of the nation’s longest war, so suddenly acquired his pariah status.In a statement to Newsweek, Senator Johnson said the Pentagon “has yet to clearly articulate the scope of its investigation despite several requests from [his] committee.” Then, in a July 10 letter to Senator Grassley’s committee, the Pentagon confirmed Hunter’s allegations: The FBI was in fact the back-channel trigger.

Scott Walker unveils plans to replace Obamacare by Glenn Beck Program

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker joined Glenn on radio today to discuss his own health care plan for the country to replace Obamacare. Speaking on behalf of many conservatives and small government constitutionalists, Glenn asked the presidential candidate why even introduce another replacement government plan – shouldn’t the free market replace it? “It follows that principle,” Walker said. “It’s really about putting patients and families back in charge. It allows them to use the market, to access the market out there in a way that lifts many of the restrictions that Obamacare and, for that matter, other laws of government have put on the free market in the past.
