  • Kamala Harris and Kirsten Gillibrand will lead Democrats to 2020 victory

    The Hill ^ | September 3, 2017 | Michael Starr Hopkins
    As Democrats survey the political landscape and focus on rebuilding the party after the disastrous 2016 election, there’s no denying that a change in leadership is desperately needed. One of the primary complaints leveled by Democratic supporters during and after the 2016 election was the lack of diverse faces in leadership positions. A party once led by Barack Obama and his picturesque first family is now scrambling to find candidates that can excite millennials and invigorate the base. It should come as no surprise to anyone well versed in Washington politics that managing to do both is no easy task....

    “Absent the pressures described [in my affidavit], I would have disapproved the findings in this case,” Lorge wrote in his affidavit. For Lorge, the pressure came from President Barack Obama’s White House and also the Senate. “At the time, the political climate regarding sexual assault in the military was such that a decision to disapprove the findings, regardless of merit, would bring hate and discontent on the Navy from the President, as well as senators including Senator Kirstin Gillibrand,” Lorge wrote in his affidavit. Lorge believes that based on his conversations with senior officials in the Navy, he was essentially...

The Abedin emails also include repeated instances of Clinton’s detailed daily schedules being sent to top Clinton Foundation officials at unsecured email addresses.

    New York Post ^ | 4/22/2017 | Maureen Callahan
    Since losing the most winnable presidential election in modern American history, Hillary Clinton has, among other things: given a series of high-profile speeches, joined Gov. Cuomo at his public unveiling of tuition-free college, refused to rule out a run for mayor of New York and issued an online video message exhorting fellow Democrats to fight on in her name. “The challenges we face,” she said, “as a country and a party, are real.” Clearly, Hillary still sees herself as the leader of the Democratic Party. And why shouldn’t she? Democrats have been locked in an abusive relationship with the Clintons...

    While New York Senator Chuck Schumer came under withering, anti-Semitic attack as soon as he informed President Barack Obama that he would vote to reject the president’s nuclear deal with Iran, his New York colleague, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, has been largely immune from criticism of any kind. Gillibrand announced her support for Obama’s deal on August 6, the same day Schumer announced his opposition. Her decision has been a critical asset for the administration’s campaign to secure the support of other Democratic lawmakers torn between their duty to their constituents and their loyalty to Obama. Gillibrand is a young senator...

    Oddly enough, criminals haven’t yet deduced the allegedly awesome crime-evading powers of the silencer. A Chicago PD spokesman told Steve Chapman earlier this year that they rarely recover silencers in gun crimes; an ATF study found that, of 1.3 million silencers in use in the United States, an average of … 44 are used in the commission of crimes annually. Why would America’s felons leave a tool like this at home when, per Gillibrand, it could mean the difference between capture and escape? Are they idiots?
  • Democrat Senator Falsely Claims Police, Witnesses Can't Hear Suppressed Guns

    Townhall.com ^ | March 14, 2017 | Katie Pavlich
    In 2015 the Hearing Protection Act, which would deregulate suppressors and remove a $200 per unit ATF tax, was introduced into the House. Since then, a few different versions have been up for consideration. Now that Republicans are the majority in Congress and with a Republican sitting in the White House, the bill has a decent chance of passing. Not surprisingly, gun control zealots are opposed to the bill for all the wrong reasons. On Tuesday, New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand falsely claimed witnesses can't hear gun shots that come from suppressed firearms and argued deregulating this piece of hardware would...

    Dear Senator Gillibrand: I am a constituent of yours, and am writing to express my dismay and outrage for your opposition to James Mattis as our new Secretary of Defense. Our country is in the longest war of its history, and needs the very best talent we have. Ret. General Mattis is not only exceptional, he is needed, and our troops are particularly excited to have someone in command who knows what he is doing. We have waivers for a reason -- to make sure we get the best people available under extreme circumstances. Your vote today, and your unfortunate...
  • First Democrat to oppose Marine hero 'Mad Dog' Mattis - to let him serve at Pentagon

    The first Senate Democrat has come out against one of President-elect Donald Trump's more popular cabinet nominees, as Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York says she won't back a special waiver for the general. 'While I deeply respect General Mattis's service, I will oppose a waiver,' Gillibrand said in a statement. 'Civilian control of our military is a fundamental principle of American democracy, and I will not vote for an exception to this rule.' Mattis' wartime experiences as a 'fighting general' and his intellect have won him strong early reviews from Republicans and Democrats, including Rep. Adam Schiff, the top...

    Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) came out against Donald Trump’s selection of retired Marine Gen. James Mattis for secretary of Defense, saying she would not support a necessary congressional waiver to allow him to take on the role. Gillibrand is the first lawmaker to oppose waiving the prohibition on former military officers heading the Pentagon less than seven years after retiring. “While I deeply respect General Mattis’s service, I will oppose a waiver,” she said in a statement. “Civilian control of our military is a fundamental principle of American democracy, and I will not vote for an exception to this rule.”...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | December 1, 2016 | Anna Giaritelli
    The Senate Armed Services chair vowed to help move Mattis through the upper chamber's confirmation process. McCain, who will chair Mattis's confirmation hearing, told the Washington Examiner that he would write the bill to grant Mattis a waiver of the seven-year rule. Not all lawmakers agreed on that Thursday night. Sen. Kristen Gillibrand, D-N.Y., a former Hillary Clinton supporter, said she is against changing that rule in order to accommodate Mattis. "While I respect Gen Mattis's service, I oppose a waiver-civilian control of our military is a fundamental principle of American democracy," Gillibrand tweeted.

    Just weeks after Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 presidential race, New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand is reaching out to her donors to talk to them "about the direction of the country," and some of Clinton's backers aren't happy. "Many of us are still grieving," one commented this week for the New York Post's Page Six. "It's like going after the widow at a funeral."

    NY Post ^ | May 6, 2016
    We hope Sens. Chuck Schumer, Cory Booker and Kirsten Gillibrand are giving that devastating new profile of resident Obama’s foreign-policy guru a careful read. Because they’ll learn how they were all played for fools on the Iran nuclear deal by that aide, Ben Rhodes — and the resident. That applies especially to Schumer, who will be the Senate Democratic leader come January. Booker and Gillibrand hewed to the party line in backing the deal. Schumer gave it a thumb’s-down — but then refused to lobby his colleagues to take his side. Sen. Bob Menendez, on the other hand, is looking...

    Kirsten Gillibrand is a bagman. She was handpicked by the Hillary Clinton/Chuck Schumer-corrupt-NY-Democrat-machine back in 2008 when then President-elect Barack Obama nominated Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State, leaving her senatorial seat empty. In some dirty back-door deal, this nobody was made Senator. They wanted a vassal, a beck and call girl. That’s Gillibrand. You see, here in deep blue New York, we hold ceremonial elections that mean nothing. The Democrat machine runs this state like its own private fiefdom, a la Tammany Hall. No one had ever heard of Gillibrand. Seven years later, we still haven’t heard of her....

    NEW YORK (AP) — Two New York legislators are leading a campaign to designate Stonewall Inn as the first national park honoring LGBT history. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and U.S. Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) made their announcement Sunday in front of the Greenwich Village tavern that was the scene of a 1969 uprising at a key moment for the nascent gay rights movement. “When we look at our country, we have recognized women’s rights, civil rights, all kinds of rights,” Gillibrand said. “The time has come to give this part of our history an imprimatur of national importance.”(continued)

    Perhaps U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand had Donald Trump's comments about the 14th Amendment and citizenship on her mind when she visited the New York State Fair on Wednesday. "This Women's Day comes just one week after the 90th anniversary of the 14th Amendment that gave women the right to vote," Gillibrand told a sold-out crowd in the keynote address at the annual Women's Day luncheon. Of course, Gillibrand, D-N.Y., meant to refer to the 19th Amendment that guaranteed all American women the right to vote. The 14th Amendment granted citizenship to anyone born or naturalized in the United States, including...

    Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a Democrat from New York, sent out a fundraising email on Monday condemning congressional efforts to investigate Planned Parenthood's practice of harvesting and selling aborted baby organs to biotech companies. Gillibrand writes that the congressional investigation of Planned Parenthood "makes my head explode." "I’m confident that if we had more women leading in Washington, we would not still be dealing with the right wing’s efforts to trample women’s health care," she says. The fundraising email concludes by urging supporters: "Please, click here to give every dollar you can right now."

    The Senate on Tuesday blocked a years-long push to reform how the military prosecutes sexual assault cases. Senators voted 50-49 on the proposal, spearheaded by Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, which would remove military sexual assault cases from the chain of command. The New York Democrat needed 60 votes to add her legislation to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), currently before the Senate. Gillibrand criticized President Obama, suggesting that he hasn't done enough to tackle the issue as commander in chief. "He promised he would address this issue," Gillibrand said. "I expect more, and I expect more leadership." It’s the second...
  • Kirsten Gillibrand: Don’t Blame The Victim Of A Rape That Never Happened

    Senator Kirsten Gillibrand has a history of calling people rapists without any proof. If she hears a rape accusation, she assumes it’s true. She skips niceties like “allegedly.” The way she sees it: If the accused isn’t guilty, why does he stand accused? Due process is for ladies only. She’s not about to stop now, even after the UVA gang-rape case has been revealed as an utter hoax. Joseph Spector, Journal News: Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, who is pushing for stronger laws against rapes on college campuses, today warned against people criticizing the woman at the center of a University of...
