  • Are Democrats brave enough to run a woman against Donald Trump?

    Democrats agree that Donald Trump’s history of bragging about groping and assaulting women is unacceptable, but they don’t agree about how to deal with it in 2020. The tension has spilled into the open in the ongoing debate about Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s role in galvanizing Senate Democrats to call for Sen. Al Franken to step down over misconduct. Even white college-educated women, Hillary Clinton’s biggest supporters, are divided. “We loved him,” Marsha Pearcy, 58, said sadly to Gillibrand at a private event for professional women in Washington on Tuesday night. Pearcy barely finished saying Franken’s name when quiet murmurs and...

    In a new interview set to air this weekend on CBS Sunday Morning, former President Bill Clinton will respond for the first time to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s (D-NY) assertion that he should have resigned over the Lewinsky affair. “You have to—really ignore what the context was,” Clinton says, according to a CBS transcript. “But, you know, she’s living in a different context. And she did it for different reasons. So, I—but I just disagree with her."

    Former President Bill Clinton waved off Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand's (D-N.Y.) assertion that he should have stepped down after his inappropriate relationship with White House intern Monica Lewinsky went public. In an interview on "CBS Sunday Morning" set to air this week, Clinton said Gillibrand's comment, which appeared in an interview with The New York Times last year, did not take into account the "context" of his decision to stay in office. "You have to really ignore what the context was," Clinton told CBS's Mo Rocca. "But, you know, she’s living in a different context. And she did it for different...

    Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.) announced Friday new legislation aimed at holding border patrol and customs enforcement agents accountable for questioning the immigration status of train and bus passengers. The Department of Homeland Security Accountability and Transparency Act (DATA), would mandate that officers with Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) formally maintain records of each time they question a passenger. “Keeping our country safe cannot come at a cost to basic human rights. When border patrol agents stop and question people in New York and in many places across the country, they aren’t keeping data...

    [snip]Ten Points 1. Kirsten Gillibrand is the junior U.S. Senator from New York and a very likely 2020 presidential candidate. 2. Her father, Doug Rutnik is an attorney and lobbyist. 3. In 2004, Rutnik worked for a company call Nxivm, and Nxivm is an incredibly shady “self-help” company that, when looked at closely, may have seemed like a cult. 4. That’s by 2004 standards, by the way—as Ben-Mathis Lilly pointed out at Slate, Forbes and UPI had already called the place a “cult” and a “pyramid scheme.” Rutnik has no claim to ignorance. 5. He worked with them for a...
  • Why Democrats Should Get On Board With Universal Employment

    WBUR Public Radio ^ | April 25, 2018 | by Miles Howard
    Two years ago, the Democratic frontrunner running for president scored votes and pundit points by reasoning that universal health care — among other big ideas being floated by liberals at the time — was too difficult: that progress happens in increments, and not earthquakes. That was 2016. This year, likely Democratic contenders for the 2020 White House race have embraced not only single-payer, but as of this week, an even more radical idea that makes government health care look like an exercise in political moderatism. Kirsten Gillibrand, Cory Booger and Bernie Sanders have each called for a program that would...

    Senators Cory Booker (N.J.) and Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.), who top the list of potential Democratic challengers to President Donald Trump in 2020, both announced last week that they would forgo accepting donations from corporate PACs in an effort to cure the corrosive effect they say special interest spending has had on the political system. But neither extended their pledge to labor unions and ideological groups. Gillibrand made her pledge last week. It was quickly followed by Booker, who, echoing Gillibrand, said the "campaign finance system is broken." Neither's pledge to stymie outside spending, however, extended to labor unions and ideological...

    Hmmm… you don’t suppose she’s thinking of running for President, do you? Naw. Perish the thought. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) showed up on Sixty Minutes this weekend and was happy to serve up the usual round of hints suggesting some impeachment/removal talk which is always sure to spice up any slow political news cycle. Of course, we’ve had Democrats calling for Trump to resign since before he was even sworn into office, but the reasons change from month to month. So what is it this time? Ah, yes… it’s the #MeToo movement. (The Hill) Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) said Sunday...

    Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) said Sunday she believes Congress should hold President Trump accountable for the numerous allegations of sexual misconduct leveled against him. “I think he should resign, and if he’s unwilling to do that, which is what I assume, then Congress should hold him accountable. We’re obligated to have hearings,” Gillibrand said in an interview with CBS's “60 Minutes.” Gillibrand, who was among the first to call for former Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) to resign due to sexual misconduct allegations, was also one of several Democratic senators who late last year said Trump should resign due to sexual...

    During Monday’s episode of “The View,” co-host Meghan McCain asked Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand if Hillary Clinton should be held to the standards Gillibrand has been advocating concerning sexual harassment.After lambasting President Trump and former Republican National Committee finance chairman Steve Wynn over multiple allegations of sexual harrassement and assault, Gillibrand was stumped when McCain asked her if Hillary Clinton should be chastised for keeping an aide on her campaign after a woman accused him of sexual harrassement in 2007.“You are a longtime supporter of the Clintons and consider her a mentor. Do you think her response this weekend was appropriate?”...

    Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York is one of the most talked-about potential Democratic candidates for the White House in 2020. But she has also turned into a thorn in the side of the Department of Justice as she holds up one of DOJ's highest-profile postings. The junior senator from New York plans to use her “blue-slip prerogative” to block the confirmation of Geoffrey S. Berman, if he is nominated by President Trump to be the United States attorney for the Southern District of New York, Gillibrand spokesman Glen Caplin told Fox News. Berman, 58, a former prosecutor in the...

    Media billionaire Oprah Winfrey has better odds of being elected President in 2020 that former Vice President Joe Biden. BetOnline currently gives the star a 20 to 1 chance at making replacing Trump, whilst Biden is given odds of only 25 to 1 — the same chance as Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand. Neither Biden nor Oprah has formally committed to running, but both have made clear they’re interested. Oprah’s acceptance speech of the Cecil B. De Mille Award at the Golden Globes sparked widespread speculation that she may be gearing up for a pivot...

    In the last year, the Pentagon did an excellent job prosecuting the war against ISIS in the Middle East. It’s amazing what the military can do when it actually drops the bombs, strafes the targets and double taps the bad guys in the night. It’s amazing what the military can do when it’s not taking orders from liberal morons like Susan Rice and Ben Rhodes. In 2018, the army must continue to rebuild its nearly non-existent armored and mechanized capabilities which were eviscerated during the last 15 years, while the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan raged and continue to in...

    Yeah, good luck with that. The perpetual outrage machine that is the left's pathological loathing for President Trump keeps reaching new lows in absurdity, albeit only on an hourly basis. Plenty of liberals have labeled Trump's tweet slamming Democrat Senator and potential 2020 opponent Kirsten Gillibrand as "sexual harassment." But liberal radio host Thom Hartmann went beyond that and described it -- I'm not making this up -- as grounds for impeachment.Here's Hartmann suggesting this during a conversation with a caller to his show on Tuesday -- Your browser does not support the audio element.

    President Trump’s son has joined in his father’s criticism of New York Senator. Kirsten Gillibrand, saying that she previously asked for campaign money “every three days.” Eric Trump defended his father on tax reform and the Roy Moore election loss Wednesday, and told WABC’s Rita Cosby that the Democrat had been clamoring for meetings at the Trump Organization.. “I remember Kirsten Gillibrand when she came into this office every three days asking for money, asking for major campaign contributions,” he said. “There is no one who wanted to get into his office more than Kirsten Gillibrand.”

    The drama between Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and President Donald Trump has reached absurd heights. First, there was that rather tweet from the president, which was not out of the ordinary. He accused Gillibrand of doing “anything” for campaign contributions. Gillibrand said this was a sexist smear, despite the president using that line on pretty much everyone. This all is part of the ongoing sexual harassment reckoning on the Hill and elsewhere. Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) is gone, and Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) has signaled his intention to leave…whenever that may be. Gillibrand has called on Trump to resign, as...
  • Kirsten Gillibrand Received Over $20,000 From A High School In California

    Kirsten Gillibrand received over 20,000 thousand dollars from Palo Alto High School. Why is a California high school giving $20,400 to a Junior New York Senator? This really makes no sense. Why is a public school giving taxpayer money to ANY campaign? Is the high school name BS and meant to hide the real donor? Is this a money laundering scheme? Palo Alto High School is in one of the richest neighborhoods in the U.S. It is a pipeline to the University of California system, Stanford, and Ivy League schools. What’s more even the teachers are extraordinarily well-connected. For instance,...

    From what could only appear as a coordinated attack to coincide with the presser to promote a new "film" about the sexual abuse accusers of President Trump and the Alabama senatorial election, New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand threw a lame left hook. The opportunistic and timely #MeToo movement was ramped up to new hysterics when President Trump responded to Gillibrand. But this isn't the first time Senator Gillibrand has exploited the sexual abuse card and then fleeing when details don't fit her desired political conclusion....

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid raised eyebrows at a New York City fundraiser hosted by Mayor Michael Bloomberg Monday morning when he referred to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand as the "hottest member," according to CNN. Gillibrand, who was seated only a few feet away from Reid at Bloomberg's New York townhouse, flushed with embarrassment at the comment, CNN reports. According to a Politico source, Reid delivered remarks praising New York's senior senator, Chuck Schumer, before turning to Gillibrand and adding that, "many senators are known for many things," and that "we in the Senate refer to Sen. Gillibrand as the hottest...
