  2. http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/wilbur-ross-sworn-in-as-secretary-of-commerce/ar-AAnDP8J?li=AA5a8k&ocid=spartanntp Wilbur Ross sworn in as secretary of commerce Billionaire investor Wilbur Ross was sworn in as U.S. commerce secretary on Tuesday after helping shape Republican President Donald Trump's opposition to multilateral trade deals. Vice President Mike Pence administered the oath of office to Ross, 79, a day after the U.S. Senate voted to confirm the corporate turnaround expert's nomination, with strong support from Democrats. After the swearing in, Ross welcomed the Democratic support and said the vote suggested that "perhaps, finally building America up again may become a bipartisan thing." Ross is set to become an influential voice in Trump's economic team and was expected to start work on renegotiating trade relationships with China and Mexico

  6. http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/mcmaster-will-need-senate-confirmation-to-serve-as-nsa/ar-AAnbIni?ocid=spartandhp McMaster will need Senate confirmation to serve as NSA An esoteric, but legally significant, point is being raised by the Senate Armed Services Committee regarding Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster’s appointment as national security adviser. Even though the president can install anyone he wants in the post without getting consent from the Senate, the law requires a confirmation vote for any three- or four-star general. All generals of this rank are appointed to their posts by the president and Senate-confirmed, so a change in post -- in this instance from Director of the Army Capabilities Integration Center to national security adviser -- requires that the Senate reconfirm McMaster’s rank as a three-star general. An aide to the Armed Services Committee says that in order for McMaster to keep his current rank, he “would have to be reappointed by the president and reconfirmed by the Senate in that grade for his new position.” Alternatively, McMaster could retire or step down a grade, to two-star.
  7. This was from PCinOZ. http://httr.cpnd.us/thread/20247/galette-sundberg-deals Junior Galette signed a 1 year deal for $775,000 (vet minimum for him) plus a $25,000 workout bonus. No indication if its a vet min benefit contract yet, so cap hit in 2017 looks like $800k. Nick Sundberg signed a 4 year deal worth $4.5m with $610k of that in signing bonus. His 2017 cap hit is $1.053m.
  8. I want the Panthers again when we start it again.
  9. http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/trumps-pick-for-health-and-human-secretary-takes-office/ar-AAmNAPR?ocid=spartandhp Trump's pick for health and human secretary takes office WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump's new health secretary took office Friday after becoming the latest Cabinet nominee to eke out a confirmation victory in the bitterly divided Senate. Vice President Mike Pence administered the oath of office to Tom Price, of Georgia, at the White House hours after the Senate confirmed him 52-47 in a party-line vote. That roll call came in the dead of night, thanks to Democrats' tactic of forcing prolonged debates to broadcast their opposition to Trump and his team. Pence said Price, an orthopedic surgeon, is "uniquely qualified" for the job and playing a leading role in helping the Republican-controlled Congress achieve its top priority of repealing and replacing the Obama-era Affordable Care Act.

Rule 19, which prohibits any member from taking to the floor and “directly or indirectly, by any form of words impute to another Senator or to other Senators any conduct or motive unworthy or unbecoming a Senator.” Warren was clearly doing precisely that. In a party-line vote, she was admonished to sit out the remainder of the debate over Sessions' nomination. A few thoughts on this, before we move on to another element of Rule 19 that may have more lasting relevance in the coming months or years: *But Sean Davis, writing at The Federalist, points to an alternative plan that would (a)*avoid further undermining the filibuster, (b) guarantee extended debate over a controversial nomination, and (c) eventually lead to a final vote. *His idea derives from a separate portion of Rule 19. *I'll let him*explain the basics: Rule XIX of the Standing Rules of the Senate plainly states that on any given question, a senator may speak only twice on the same legislative day. This clause is known in Senate parlance as the two-speech rule. No senator may speak more than two times on the same matter on the same legislative day...In simple terms, it means that once each senator has spoken twice on a matter, debate on that matter is concluded no matter what. It means that a final up-or-down vote is guaranteed. It does not preclude the Senate from invoking cloture before all senators have spoken twice, nor does it preclude the Senate from proceeding to a final vote in the absence of continued debate. Unlike the nuclear option, which kills debate instantly at the whim of the majority, enforcement of the two-speech rule effectively sets a limit on debate. But if the "two speech rule" were invoked, wouldn't the "day" clock reset every 24 hours? No. * Davis writes that the clear precedent is that a legislative day marks the period between gaveling into and out of a discrete*session. On occasion, a single Senate legislative "day" has stretched on for weeks, including the*famous*episode in which*the "two speech rule" was applied to the battle over the Civil Rights Act. The Senate majority has the power to bounce back and forth between legislative and executive session at will. As a result, the Senate could conduct its legislative business during the day and confine debate over the pending presidential nomination to the wee hours of the night. .

CBS Sports projects Tabor as a first round pick, Wilson a second-rounder, Maye as a third- or fourth-round pick and Clark either as a seventh-round selection or a college free agent.

Democrats stayed away from the meeting for a second day running, which under the committee's rules normally would have prevented the votes from taking place. But Republicans on Wednesday voted to suspend the rule that had required at least one Democrat to be present for business to be conducted Republican members of the committee, who were all present, then approved the nominees 14-0. The nominees are considered likely to be confirmed by the Republican-majority Senate. Committee aides said the panel had notified the Democrats a half-hour before Wednesday's proceedings. Hatch said he had obtained approval from the Senate parliamentarian for the move suspending the rule.
