Corpus Christi Caller-Times. Feb. 14, 2014.
The Democratic National Committee is trying to jumpstart some fundraising flurry by using fear, suggesting that if party faithfuls don't give — and give big for the upcoming elections — President Obama could very well face impeachment.
The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has begun to look into Navy Yard shooter Aaron Alexis and on Wednesday asked the Obama administration to turn over the unredacted 2007 background investigation report that approved his secret security clearance.
If the Obama administration doesn't act soon, the nation may miss out on a key opportunity to begin closing its trade deficit while U.S. companies also miss out on the chance to sell abundant natural gas to eager international customers, lawmakers said Tuesday.
House Republicans on Tuesday accused federal agencies of failing to prepare for the automatic sequester cuts, saying they had two years to get ready but instead the administration spent time on "scare tactics."
The House has passed a bill to prevent the Environmental Protection Agency from cracking down on farm dust, even though the agency says it has no plans to regulate that pollution.
The National Labor Relations Board's bid to prevent Boeing from moving to South Carolina could harm the very state it is trying to protect by discouraging businesses from setting up shop there, Republican lawmakers warn.
Democrats aren't wasting any time in trying to define first and negatively a crop of House Republicans they want to knock off in 2012, launching new radio and Web ad campaigns in 19 swing districts just under three months after the midterm elections.
House Republicans picked up two additional seats this week, winning with "tea party"-backed candidates in New York and Texas to give the party a net gain of 63 seats with two races still undecided.
Democratic Texas Rep. P. Solomon Ortiz has conceded defeat to Republican newcomer Blake Farenthold.
"Typically, these failures result from a combination of human error, bad processes and rules, and lack of oversight of employees and contractors," Mr. Farenthold said in a statement to The Washington Times. "I am also concerned with inadequate use of modern technology in the screening process. The committee intends to thoroughly investigate the system and find solutions to keep people safe."
Mr. Farenthold said the public has seen "selective leaks and partial disclosures" of information about what was or wasn't covered by the OPM background investigation into Alexis.
