  • Leading Senate Democrats Call For Ethics Investigation Into Al Franken

    Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) faced swift and bipartisan condemnation Thursday and a call for an ethics investigation after a Los Angeles model and broadcaster accused him of “forcibly kissing” and groping her in 2006. After originally issuing a brief apology and saying he didn’t recall the incident the way Leeann Tweeden did, Franken issued a longer apology — “There’s no excuse” — and welcomed the ethics investigation, saying he will “gladly cooperate.” The top Democrat, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (N.Y.), said he hopes there will soon be one by the Senate Ethics Committee, which has the authority to recommend...
  • Democrats are desperate to avoid a culture war with Trump in 2018

    Democrats decided 16 months before the 2018 election how they would start winning races again. Gathered in a small Virginia town on a sweltering July day, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi and their lieutenants laid out a “Better Deal" agenda focused on middle-class jobs and higher wages — a vow, they said, that their party would never again waver from a laser-like focus on the economy. Donald Trump makes some promises difficult to keep. Just days later, the president declared on Twitter that transgender men and women were banned from the military. His action drew a swift rebuke from Democrats, who...
  • Chuck Schumer Feigns Ignorance of DNC Pro-Hillary Rigging: "I Didn't Follow" 2016 Primary

    Wait a second: isn't Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer the savviest guy in Washington, the super-smart Harvard grad, the ultimate political insider? So if anyone would know about DNC finagling in favor of Hillary Clinton, it would be her fellow New Yorker, Schumer: right? Nope! Turns out Chuck is a delicate flower, unaware of the corruption surrounding him in the DNC cesspool. Morning Joe aired today a clip from Kasie Hunt's interview of Schumer. Slumped in his chair, his voice barely above a whisper, Schumer had the chutzpah to deny any knowledge of the way the DNC rigged things for...
  • Sayfullo Saipov, Winner of Chuck's Diversity Lottery

    Chuck Schumer is a verbal escape artist, but when it comes to Sayfullo Saipov’s entry into the United States, the New York senator is trapped. The Diversity Visa Lottery program that brought Saipov to America was created by Chuck Schumer, no matter what his pals in the media want you to believe. After President Trump made sure Americans knew who was responsible for the program, Arizona Senator Jeff Flake jumped in to help Schumer escape from his legislative record. But Flake’s defense of Schumer deserves particular scrutiny. Flake argued that the Gang of 8 amnesty bill that Schumer and...

    Few people want to say it, but the truth about the Democrat Party is that it views the 8 people killed by Saipov merely as collateral damage, an acceptable price for our society to pay in order to keep building a major new voting bloc to which Democrat candidates for office can pander. ‘Hey, you want Sharia Law in your neighborhood? No problem, vote for me.’ In case you still haven’t noticed, the Democrat Party is at war with “normal” America, and it values your life only so long as you support its world view. It’s a disgrace and it’s...

    Unlike the Las Vegas mass murder where authorities have been extremely tight-lipped about details and motives, we are very quickly getting details in about Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, the radical Islamic terrorist who shouted "Allahu Akbar" as he used a truck to mow down random people in the Manhattan area of New York City on Tuesday, killing at least eight and injuring several more. Sayfullo Saipov, 29, was an Uzbekistan National who came to the United States under the Diversity Visa Program (DV Program), which makes up to 50,000 immigrant visas available annually, drawn from random selection among all entries to...

    It’s going to be a long fall and winter filled with hyper-partisan rancor. There is nothing progressives hate more than a healthy, growing economy. I’m not kidding. If you think otherwise, you don’t understand progressives. There can be no doubt the GOP proposal would indeed stimulate economic growth in a very big way. The key stimulus-producing provision is one that would allow businesses of all kinds to deduct most capital costs during the tax year in which they are incurred. Currently, such costs must be recovered by depreciating them over 5 to 30 years, depending on the asset that is...

    Jimmy Kimmel is the perfect spokesman for the American Left. He personifies everything the Left has become over the last 25 years, since the advent of Clintonian/Alinsky dominance of the Democrat Party: Entitled, snarky, mean, haughty, and above all else, studiously ignorant. The tactics he deploys from his late night pulpit are the tactics Clintonian Democrats have deployed from their political pulpits for a quarter of a century. You begin with a set of talking points prepared by someone else, but which you memorize and recite as if they were gospel handed down from God himself. In Kimmel’s case, the...

    If you were wondering how Jimmy Kimmel suddenly became an instant expert on Graham-Cassidy, it turns out he had a lot of help including from Sen. Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. The Daily Beast reports Kimmel has had a running conversation with Schumer and other outside experts for several weeks: Behind the scenes, the ABC star was getting an assist. Kimmel and his team were in touch with health care officials, charities and advocacy groups, multiple sources told The Daily Beast. He also was in touch with the office of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y) who, according to a...

    The President cannot get the increased border security funding he wants without votes from Democrats, 98% of whom don’t give a damn about border security. Democrats do give a damn about filling our country with as many third world immigrants as they can, because they view them as future Democrat voters, but they can’t enshrine this 800,000 strong bloc of future DACA voters without votes from Republicans and support from the White House. They know that DACA provisions do not give the “Dreamers” citizenship or voting rights, but they do allow them to become permanent U.S. residents who can find...

    But Pelosi persevered, at least for now, staving off her challengers and critics by reminding them that she is a…wait for it…”master legislator”. That claim is a laughable lie, but if Pelosi knows one thing, it is that Democrats love, love, love being lied to, which of course is why she rose to power in the first place. So things calmed down for her, but she was far from out of the woods, and many observers have remained concerned there could be more moves to oust her as next year’s mid-term elections approach. So, by now you’re wondering why I...
  • Chuck Schumer SLAMS President Trump : “It’s Racist To Only Allow Citizens To Vote”

    Senate sleazebag Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has declared restricting voting to only Americans as an exercise in racism. Everything that protects America from conquest, such as immigration laws, vetting of refugees and voter IDs is racist to corrupt Chuck. Obviously feeling a threat to the Democrats’ system of voter fraud that is the foundation of every election they win, the Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer declared that Democrats will attempt to use a “must-pass” bill to dissolve President Donald Trump’s voter fraud commission if he doesn’t end it ‘voluntarily.”

    President Trump’s decision announced Monday night to increase the U.S. presence in Afghanistan by sending up to 4,000 additional troops and military advisers into that already 16 year-old war is both disappointing, and encouraging. The disappointment comes in the President’s going back on his oft-repeated campaign pledge to get our country out of that armpit of the earth, where more that 2.500 American lives have already been sacrificed to accomplish goals that under President George W. Bush were overly-ambitious and unachievable, and that under President Barack Obama were vague and unsupported in any real way by that administration. All that...

    Sen. Charles Schumer says the Food and Drug Administration should launch a formal investigation into the health consequences of chemicals used in fast food packaging. The New York Democrat on Sunday released a letter he sent to the head of the agency asking for the investigation into phthalates, which are used in plastics to make them more flexible. Some phthalates have been linked to health issues, both developmental and reproductive. People can be exposed to phthalates if they eat or drink food that's come into contact with containers made with the chemicals. Schumer pointed out that some types of phthalates...

    ALBANY — Sen. Chuck Schumer, long among the most popular state public officials, has seen his approval numbers drop dramatically since he became Senate Democratic leader in January, a new poll found Just 53% of those surveyed by the Siena College poll hold a favorable view of Schumer, his lowest ever in a Siena poll. The 37% who now view him unfavorably is the highest ever in a Siena poll. Schumer’s highest ever favorability rating was 70% in 2005. He was at 67% in December but has seen that number drop consistently since. In May, his favorability rating was 57-33%.

    Let’s talk about congressional Republicans. A year ago today, Republicans in congress were possibly the single most-detested part of the ruling class in Washington, DC. They had, as a group, made more false and failed promises to voters over the previous seven years than almost any such collective group of politicians in American history. They were headed at that point for a thrashing at the voting booths, with “experts” and polls indicating the GOP would lose its Senate majority and could possibly lose the House as well, if Hillary Clinton defeated Donald Trump in a landslide in the presidential contest....

    Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham became frustrated with intelligence community lawyers Tuesday, when they would not answer a question about his conversations being picked up while the U.S. was spying on foreign targets. Graham asked the lawyers at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Tuesday whether he is legally entitled to know if his communications are collected and “unmasked” within the administration. The identities of U.S. citizens inadvertently caught up in foreign spying are typically “masked” from officials to protect their privacy rights. “It’s important to us to get the facts right,” Graham said. “Did the name come in masked or unmasked?...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Repairing the nation's crumbling roads and bridges was supposed to be an area ripe for bipartisan compromise between congressional Democrats and President Donald Trump. Instead, Democrats are panning Trump's proposed $1 trillion overhaul and even Republicans are balking at some aspects of the emerging plan. The White House's self-proclaimed "Infrastructure Week" began with Trump appearing Monday with aviation officials and some prominent GOP lawmakers to announce plans to privatize the nation's air traffic control system and separate operations from the Federal Aviation Administration.

    WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump’s grand plan to spend $1 trillion over the next 10 years on highways and other infrastructure improvements faces a formidable roadblock in Congress and state legislatures. There’s agreement the investment is badly needed to improve the nation’s sagging infrastructure but how to cover the huge expense is the point of tension. Trump would use $200 billion in public funds to generate $800 billion in private money under a partnership program that would finance government bonds and also return a profit to private companies through interstate tolls and other user fees. To do that, Congress would...
