  • Is a Chuck Schumer-Elizabeth Warren feud breaking out?

    American Thinker ^ | 02/23/2017 | Thomas Lifson
    If I were Elizabeth Warren, I would have to restrain myself to avoid responding in kind to an insult delivered by her own Senate Minority Leader, Chuck Schumer. The Hill reports: Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) is dismissing the GOP's efforts to make Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) the face of the Democratic Party. "It's not going to work," Schumer said of the strategy, according to Politico. The publication reported that Republicans are looking for someone to drive their conservative base to donate and turn out to vote. Politico quoted GOP strategists who said Warren is viewed negatively outside the coasts, adding that she could...

    The following letter is an open letter to Senator Chuck Schumer. I did not write it, but I wish that I had. I am listing a video, which speaks for itself. What Senator Chuck Schumer said and did on National TV was beyond the pale. If you did not see what he said on THE RACHEL MADDOW SHOW, you will see it on the video. The following letter does not address this, but it is a rare and brilliant summary of the many facts that Senator Chuck Schumer needs to understand. In my opinion, Schumer needs to stop needling President...

    Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) blasted a report that the Trump administration is considering using the National Guard to round up undocumented immigrants for deportation, a claim that the White House has denied. "That's despicable," Schumer told reporters during a press conference on Scott Pruitt's nomination to lead the Environmental Protection Agency. "That would be one of the most un-American things that would happen in the last century." He added: "I just hope it's not true." The Trump administration issued a strongly worded denial on Friday morning after The Associated Press reported that the administration was planning to mobilize...

They cling to popular vote totals, buoyed by left-wing superstates New York and California, so they can whistle past their electoral graveyard and their brutal 2018 map.

Loud booing from a vocal, but small minority of the arena crowd started about halfway through the show, when Schumer's raunchy humor veered into more topical matters, including gun control and the presidential election.

The Obama administration announced that it opposes portions of a bipartisan trade bill that would strengthen economic ties between the U.S. and Israel and force trade partners to sever ties with backers of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, an anti-Israel movement that seeks to economically isolate the Jewish state.

But less than a decade ago, Schumer advocated doing the same exact thing if any additional Supreme Court vacancies opened under former President George W. Bush. Almost immediately after Scalia’s death was announced Saturday evening, Republican lawmakers and presidential candidates began arguing the appointment of his successor should be left to the next president. Schumer lamented this outlook as pure obstructionism. “You know, the...

    Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) is slamming Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz for attacking “New York values" and praising GOP rival Donald Trump for defending his home state. "I'm a Democrat, but Donald Trump did a very good job defending New York," Schumer told host John Catsimatidis on "The Cats Roundtable" on New York's AM-970 on Sunday. "I'd like Ted Cruz to go talk about New York values to the firefighters who rushed to the towers on 9/11, and the police and EMTs, to the brave New York police officers who keep our streets safe," he added. Schumer also noted that...
  • How A Donald Trump Nomination Would Make The GOP Consultant Class Very Rich - Easy Marks

    While Donald Trump won't be the GOP nominee, reclaiming the party from Trump still requires that we contemplate what a Trump nomination and even possibly a Trump presidency would look like. The picture isn't a pretty one. One of the under appreciated aspects is how any electoral success by Trump in the primaries and potentially the general election could spawn a bonanza for the GOP's much-despised consultant class, at the expense of the party's ability to field principled and/or successful statewide and national candidates. The reason for this is fairly straightforward: Trump is the avatar of the clueless-rich-guy style of...
  • Politico, The Hill, Hide Speaker Ryan’s 2016 Report Card From Pelosi: ‘They Gave (trunc)

    Beltway-insider publications Politico and The Hill are hiding House Speaker Rep. Paul Ryan's 2016’s disastrous report card, even days after the Dec. 18 passage of his $1.1-plus trillion 2016 spending-and-tax plan. Ryan and his top aides “really gave away the store,” Democratic leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) declared Dec. 18. Her report-card phrase — “they really gave away the store” — doesn’t appear in Politico or TheHill, even by Dec. 22. Instead, Politico suggested that Ryan came out roughly even. “The four leaders — Ryan, Pelosi (D-Calif.), Senate Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Senate Minority Leader Sen. Harry...

    Why I won't support the latest last-minute $1.1 trillion spending bill. By SEN. TED CRUZ December 17, 2015 It's Christmastime in Washington, D.C., and that can mean only one thing: Congress is once again playing Santa Claus. The names at the top of its list are the Washington Cartel: The big businesses and lobbyists who get in bed with career politicians to do nothing but grow government. And left off the list: the American taxpayer. Thanks to last year's landslide elections, Republicans now control more seats in Congress, more governorships and more state legislative seats across the country than at...

    Here is a partial list of Democrat senators who so far are leaning AGAINST Obama's bizarre plan to allow Syrian "refugees" into this country in the wake of the Paris terror attacks by ISIS.

    Sen. Charles Schumer (N.Y.), the third ranking member of the Senate Democratic leadership, on Tuesday said it may be necessary to halt the resettlement of Syrian refugees in the United States. Republicans immediately seized on Schumer's comment, which breaks with other Democrats who have argued against halting the program.

(SNIP) Thursday, King responded to Schumers comment on the House floor saying it was Schumer not him who represented the fringe. Specifically King said Schumer represented socialists, marxists, progressives, liberal Democrats.

    The La Raza-backed Rubio-Schumer immigration bill would have granted amnesty to the illegal alien population and would have expanded immigration levels beyond all known historical precedent— issuing 33 million new immigrants on green cards in the span of a single decade, permanently transforming the U.S. electorate and economy. Every immigrant with a green card could in turn bring relatives to the United States, collect welfare, and eventually vote and thus cancel out conservative ballots. “He was not only totally committed— he was in that room with us, with four Democrats, four Republicans… for hours a day, week after week after...

    Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, on Tuesday challenged Democrats to support a bill that would punish cities that don't adhere to federal immigration laws, and said today's vote on the bill will let voters see if Democrats favor illegal immigrants over Americans. "For every Democratic senator, this vote today is a simple decision: With whom do you stand?" Cruz said on the Senate floor. "Do you stand with the violent, criminal illegal aliens who are being released over and over again?" The bill would block federal funding to any of the more than 200 cities around the country that have decided...
