    Thursday on Twitter, Senator Ted Cruz took part in Free Beacon’s “caption contest” of a hilarious photo of Ben Sasse and Chuck Schumer .. Ted’s tweet broke Twitter and won the caption contest … apparently it also ruined the romper for men (can we get an amen!?) ... They say this like it’s a bad thing. Have you seen the Romphim for men? Seriously, who thought these things were a good idea? GQ apparently. Heh.....
  • U.S. political fundraiser gets 12 years for bank fraud

    Hassan Nemazee, an Iranian-American businessman who raised money for the political campaigns of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, was sentenced to 12 years in prison for defrauding Bank of America Corp, Citigroup Inc and HSBC Holdings Plc out of $292 million. U.S. District Judge Sidney Stein imposed the sentence on Thursday following Nemazee's March 18 guilty plea in Manhattan federal court to charges of bank fraud and wire fraud over loan transactions with the three major banks. Nemazee said he needed the money to pay debts arising from his dealings in hedge funds and properties.

    The Iranian regime is believed to be operating polling stations across the United States ahead of the country’s election on Friday, an effort that appears to violate U.S. laws barring Iranian agents from operating on American soil in this manner, according to sources apprised of the situation. There are nearly 50 such polling stations where Iranian expats can vote across the United States, including in major American cities such as New York City and Washington, D.C., according to a list of polling stations published online.

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer called for an escalation of the already unprecedented obstructionist activity of his caucus until a special prosecutor is appointed to handle an investigation into Russian collusion, during an interview Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.” Host Jake Tapper asked Schumer about a suggestion from Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.), the vice chairman on the Senate Intelligence Committee, that Democrats should “refuse to vote on the nomination of a new FBI director until a special prosecutor is appointed.” Schumer said that he supports that move. In a separate interview Sunday on "State of the Union," Tapper...

    Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., warns Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein that his reputation as an ‘‘independent, apolitical actor’’ is at risk unless he begins sharing details of the firing of former FBI director James Comey with lawmakers in the coming days. ‘‘Over the last three decades of your career at the Department of Justice, you have developed a reputation for integrity and impartiality,’’ Schumer wrote to Rosenstein. ‘‘That reputation, along with the personal and public commitments you made to me and other Senators that you would be an independent, apolitical actor as Deputy Attorney General, earned you broad...

    'Member what they said last year? I 'member. If you’re a Democrat, 2016 was “the good ol’ days.” Back then, you were safely ensconced in the arrogant assumption that Hillary Clinton would be the next President. You were 100% sure that Donald Trump was guaranteed to suffer a humiliating defeat, and your socialist utopia would be secured by the ascension of the first female President. Then she lost.

    The top federal prosecutor in Chicago is threatening to sue publisher HarperCollins, calling a book about the war on terrorism that focuses in part on cases he was involved in "a deliberate lie masquerading as the truth." If HarperCollins publishes the new edition of "Triple Cross" by Peter Lance this month "and it defames me or casts me in a false light, HarperCollins will be sued," Patrick Fitzgerald said in a letter to the New York-based company. The book focuses on, among other things, major terrorism cases that Fitzgerald prosecuted when he was an assistant U.S. attorney in New York...

    Another "big win" for the GOP Last week, Dan outlined the insanity of the Republican party’s apparent decision to let Democrats continue to run the federal show. At the time, the GOP was fretting about a possible government shutdown that could occur if Congress couldn’t agree on a spending plan. Since most congressional repubs are terrified of a real fight, you started to hear talk of concessions almost immediately. Now, they’ve allegedly reached a deal that will fund the government through September, avoid a shutdown, and (you guessed it) give Democrats pretty much everything they want. For example:

    Senator Chuck Schumer on MSNBC (via ZeroHedge): “We’re no longer fact-based. The founding fathers created a country based on fact. We don’t have a fact base. If Breitbart News and the New York Times are regarded with equal credibility, you worry about this democracy.” First of all, in Schumer’s opening sentence, who is this “we”? There is an implication that the “we” is somehow monolithic and centralized. But people have been in disagreement about facts and what they mean since the dawn of time. People have rejected centralized sources of facts, from kings and queens and priests, to newspapers and...

    The Turkish government is expanding its witch hunt of suspected allies of cleric Fethullah Gulen by opening an investigation into 17 U.S.-based individuals, including New York Sen. Chuck Schumer and former CIA director John Brennan. Turkish investigators are interested in Schumer because of donations he has received from Gulen’s supporters here in the U.S. The complaint also names several Gulenists who operate non-profit organizations here in the U.S. One of those is Recep Ozkan, the former president of the Gulen-linked Turkish Cultural Center. Ozkan donated heavily to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaigns and as much as $1 million to the Clinton...

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi broke with fellow Democrats who had criticized President Trump's military action against Syria to endorse the move late Thursday. "Making sure Assad knows that when he commits such despicable atrocities he will pay a price is the right thing to do," Schumer said in a statement released late Thursday. "I salute the professionalism and skill of our Armed Forces who took action today." "Tonight's strike in Syria appears to be a proportional response to the the regime's use of chemical weapons," Pelosi said in a statement.

    Rich Lowry: Throughout its history, the United States Senate has experienced disgraceful filibusters (Strom Thurmond against the 1957 Civil Rights Act), entertaining filibusters (Huey Long in 1935 reciting a fried-oyster recipe) and symbolic filibusters (Rand Paul making a point about drone strikes in 2013). But the filibuster that Chuck Schumer is about to undertake against Judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court is perhaps the institution’s dumbest. Hard to argue with that, but in the interest of progressive politics there is nothing so dumb that the Democrats won’t do it. It won’t block Gorsuch, won’t establish any important jurisprudential...

    Roasts Schumer's hypocrisy I know, I know. Most conservatives place about as much faith in Mitch McConnell as they place in the healing benefits of copper bracelets. However, his promise - made on Fox News Sunday - is about as unconditional as it gets. Gorsuch, he claims, will be confirmed. ...And he’ll be confirmed by the end of this week.

    White House or Waffle House, who cares? They like to tell the GOP which presidential candidates they “fear the most.” This usually ends up with Republicans running someone like John McCain or Jeb Bush. They like to offer “helpful” strategy suggestions which, for the last ten years, have been nothing but pathways to conservative failure. They enjoy telling the RNC what it should do “for the good of the two-party system,” and that advice always boils down to “don’t fight, roll over, and give us what we want.” They’re Democrats in office and in the media - and we’re all...

    Schumer loses cool with Trump supporter at swanky restaurant Sen. Chuck Schumer caused a scene at a Manhattan restaurant when he began yelling at a wealthy and well-connected Donald Trump supporter that the POTUS is “a liar.” Schumer, the top Senate Democrat, lost his cool on Sunday night at Upper East Side restaurant Sette Mezzo, according to witnesses. He was dining with friends when he encountered Joseph A. Califano Jr. — the former US secretary of health, education and welfare under President Jimmy Carter and domestic policy adviser to President Lyndon B. Johnson — and his wife, Hilary, who were...

Califano Jr. — the former U.S. secretary of health, education and welfare under President Jimmy Carter and domestic policy adviser to President Lyndon B. Johnson — and his wife, Hilary, who were having a quiet dinner. Onlookers said Schumer was incensed that Hilary — the daughter of William S.

    Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY) is highly regarded within political circles for his ability to capture the mood of the moment and milk it to his advantage. However, whether Senator Schumer should command respect based upon consistency and willingness to put principles ahead of "politics of the moment" is another matter. This can be seen clearly by the Senator's statements in the current flap over whether a White House official - Karl Rove is the one taking the rap in press allegations -- had permitted disclosure of a CIA agent's name. Don't take my word for it. Let Senator Schumer's...

    As the Senate Judiciary Committee was hearing from witnesses for and against Judge Neil Gorsuch, his Supreme Court nomination was delivered a critical blow: Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) said he would join with other Democrats in filibustering Gorsuch — a move that would require at least 60 senators to vote to end debate on the nomination.
