SORT BY Relevancy
Tonight Elizabeth Letchworth Chryst, our Capitol Hill Insider, joins us with the latest from inside the beltway.
SEC. OF STATE John "Vietnam" Kerry has been busy this week, trying to convince members of the Senate Foreign Relations and Armed Services committees as well as House Foreign Affairs members why Obama's plan to "halt" Iran's nuclear weapons is a "good deal."
And both leaders in the House and Senate are getting hammered by conservatives for their flaccid responses to issues that matter. As reported by David Limbaugh "While President Obama accelerates his increasingly radical agenda, the GOP, despite its congressional majority, can barely muster an objection, let alone block his momentum."
Tonight - the backstories to those and more with Capitol Hill insider Elizabeth Letchworth Chryst, the first woman to have been elected US Secretary to the Senate.
Discussion tonight with Capitol Hill Insider and Analyst Elizabeth Letchworth Chryst centers around two major issues being deliberated in Congress this week:
Brietbart reports that Republicans in Congress have cooked up a phony poll-tested talking points to push Obama's trade deal. So why is leadership in both the House and the Senate pushing to give Obama authority to negotiate trade deals while allowing themselves the only option of an up or down vote on the deals?
Sen. Jeff Sessions: Trade Deal Could Trigger Flood of Illegals:
"Past trade deals suggest there is precedent for such a move. In 2002, Sessions opposed giving President George W. Bush trade promotion authority. The following year, the Bush administration included temporary visas from Singapore and Chile in their respective trade pacts despite opposition from Congress."
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters Tuesday the upper chamber will move forward on an Iran deal quickly.
The Kentucky Republican filed cloture, which ends debate on the matter and no member will be able to vote on any more amendments.
What's happening on Capitol Hill? The latest in the House and the Senate -- legilation, nominations, hearings, gossip. Tonight with our Capitol Hill insider, Elizabeth Letchworth, retired Secretary to the Majority in the US Senate and founder of GradeGov.com
Angie's List, the online service that provides consumer reviews of service professionals, publicly endorsed anti-Christian bigotry by opposing an Indiana law designed to protect religious liberties and freedoms.
Last week, Indiana Governor Mike Pence signed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) after the state legislature overwhelmingly supported it. Twenty states now have passed the law, with Arkansas and Georgia currently considering it.
Back on the air tonight with the Hon. Elizabeth Letchworth Chryst, retired US Senate Secretary. We'll be discussing Indiana Governor Mike Pence's headlne-making dilemma.. but is it REALLY a dilemma? Or something else?
Elizabeth will have the answers and the backstory.

The first test of the new House speaker will happen in the next couple of weeks — a one month extension of Highway bill expires Nov 30. We'll take a look at Paul Ryan and who he's bringing on to staff his new position.
And... the Keystone Pipeline… Canadian company wants US to stop reviewing it until after Obama’s gone.
The Corker-Menendez Bill requires Congress to approve any actions the President takes re: Iran. Its a controversial piece of legislation that some are saying turns the Constitution on its head. Does it? Capitol Hill expert Elizabeth Letchworth Chryst analyzes the bill that reached bipartisan unanimous approved (19-0) by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
And... the Department of Justice has announced that it will NOT prosecute IRS' Lois Lerner for Contempt of Congress. The decision has caused outrage among justice-seeking organizations. What will/can Congress do about it, and what kind of impact will this decision have on Hillary Clinton's bid for the White House?
Yucca Mountain in Nevada is a federally designated nuclear waste site that has been sitting idle for 30 years, thanks to Harry Reid. Now that he's announced he won't run for Senate again, rendering him a lame duck, movement is already underway to shift the nuclear waste from the country's nuclear facilities to its rightful place in Nevada. We discuss.
