    They're quite happy with "strategic patience" and "leading from behind" when it comes to bloodthirsty terrorists, but let a corporation seek to lower its tax bill . . . time for action! You can usually tell where people’s hearts really are by what animates them. There are situations when they know they’re supposed to look and sound passionate. And then there are situations in which they really are. There was much fire-breathing on Capitol Hill yesterday, not because of the growing urgency to stop the next ISIS beheading, burning, drowning or mass shooting - but because a U.S. corporation found...

    WASHINGTON -- Democratic Senate leaders are vowing to block the House bill that would stop Syrian refugees from entering the country until a strict, multi-agency vetting process is in place. The bill passed the House by a 289-137 vote yesterday, with 47 Democrats voting in favor of the legislation -- including Bay State U.S. Reps. William B. Keating and Stephen F. Lynch, who said the additional screening by the chief National Intelligence Agency was a key point in leading to his support. President Obama had vowed to veto it, but with a veto-proof majority vote, Democratic efforts to stop the...

    In a stinging rebuke to President Barack Obama by Republicans and Democrats, the House ignored a veto threat Thursday and overwhelmingly approved GOP legislation erecting fresh hurdles for Syrian and Iraqi refugees trying to enter the United States. Forty-seven Democrats joined all but two Republicans as the House passed the measure by a veto-proof 289-137 margin, a major setback to the lame duck president on an issue —the Islamic State group and the refugees fleeing it — that shows no signs of easing. The vote exceeded the two-thirds majority required to override a veto, and came despite a rushed, early...

    Senate Democrats launched athird consecutive filibuster of the bipartisan defense appropriations bill yesterday, once againblocking consideration of legislation that would fund the United States military and pay members of our armed forces. Yes, it's okay to be thoroughly perplexed bythis development. Remember, the ostensible reason that Democrats have engaged in this obstruction over recent months -- which also entailedfilibustering the Veterans Affairs appropriations bill -- was to exploit the troops and veterans as leverage to force Republicans to agree to higher federal spending on unrelated matters. It was a cynical play, but thanks in part to President Obama'shyper-partisan veto, it...

Marco Rubio on Thursday, calling on the Florida Republican and 2016 presidential contender to resign his Senate seat as he racks up no-shows on his voting record while campaigning for the White House. "Why shouldn't he [resign]? He hates the Senate," Reid said in an interview with POLITICO on Thursday. "Why should the taxpayers of this country and people of Florida put up with having only one senator? Doesn't seem fair to me."

    On Tuesday, I surprised some of my progressive friends by calling Congressman Paul Ryan reasonable. After I made my comments, my office was contacted by a number of progressive allies and fellow Democrats demanding to know why I would ever say nice things about a man who is launching the most sustained and aggressive attack on Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security in recent history. The reason is simple: Democrats need responsible Republican negotiating partners if, together, we are going to avoid the twin challenges facing us in the coming weeks: avoiding the first-ever default of the full faith and credit...

    Billions of barrels of oil have been discovered in Israel, and this discovery could essentially make Israel energy independent for many decades to come. But there is just one problem. This discovery was made in the Golan Heights. If you are not familiar with the Golan Heights, it is an area that Israel took from Syria during the Six-Day War of 1967. The government of Israel considers the Golan Heights to now be part of Israeli territory, but the United Nations does not recognize Israel’s claim. Instead, the UN still recognizes Syrian sovereignty over that area. So now that massive...

    Washington (AFP) - President Barack Obama's Democrats staved off a united Republican effort to sink the Iran nuclear deal Thursday, handing him a welcome foreign policy victory. As expected, US senators fell two votes shy of the 60 needed to advance a resolution disapproving of the international accord, meaning the legislation aimed at sabotaging the deal is essentially dead. "The Senate has spoken with a clarion voice and declared that the historic agreement to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon will stand," Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid said after Democrats cleared the way for the accord.

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid jumped on both Tuesday, first attacking Trump for his criticism of Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., then pivoting to a larger target: the growing GOP presidential field and the entire Republican Party. Reid, D-Nev., noted that while Trump's GOP White House rivals were nearly unanimous in denouncing Trump's suggestion that McCain is not really a war hero, they were more tentative in responding to his criticisms of Mexican immigrants as "criminals" and "rapists."(continued)

    In his address to the nation after the Charleston attack, Obama claimed: we as a country will have to reckon with the fact that this type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries. It doesnt happen in other places with this kind of frequency. Senator Harry Reid made a similar statement on June 23rd: The United States is the only advanced country where this type of mass violence occurs. Lets do something. We can expand, for example, background checks. We should support not giving guns to people who are mentally ill and felons. This claim is...

    On Tuesday, Senate Minority Leader Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) said the United States is the only advanced country where public mass violence occurs, and more gun control is needed now to keep Charleston-like attacks from happening again. Reids announcement that public mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries echoed a similar claim by Obama in which he referenced Charleston by claiming that this type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries.

    LAS VEGAS (FOX5) - Speaking to reporters in Washington Tuesday, Sen. Harry Reid called on Nevada higher education officials to consider changing the University of Nevada, Las Vegas' mascot and sports nickname. The statements came after a shooting in South Carolina that claimed nine lives sparked debate about displays of the Confederacy. On the campus of UNLV Tuesday, it was difficult to find anyone who believes the mascot, Hey Reb!, should be changed. What happened over there is a tragedy of course, but what's happening here on campus is what's happening on campus. Go Rebels, student Billy Watts said. I...

    Now that Harry Reid has announced his retirement from the U.S. Senate, theres no shortage of elected officials interested in the job. But Las Vegas City Councilman Bob Beers wont be one of them. Beers, a fiscal conservative who announced his candidacy more than a year ago, has decided not to run in 2016. When I announced my candidacy more than a year ago, Harry Reid was actively running for re-election and I was the only Republican office holder in the state with the courage to run against him, Beers said in a message on his website early Monday evening....

    Gov. Brian Sandoval announced Tuesday he will not run for Harry Reids U.S. Senate seat. Sandoval made known his intentions to remain as governor, at least for now, following the conclusion of the 2015 legislative session on June 1... I have said many times that it is an honor and a privilege to serve as Nevadas chief executive and that I love my job. My heart is in my responsibilities as governor and continuing to build the New Nevada. My undivided attention must be devoted to being the best governor, husband and father I can be. For these reasons, I...

    A plan that will close nearly 2,000 miles of public roads that have previously been open for use by the people of Mesa County is creating a public backlash against the Grand Junction field office of the federal Bureau of Land Management. The BLMs resource management plans (RMP) regulate the access and types of traffic allowed on roads on public lands. Road maintenance and seasonal closures are also detailed in such plans. But the most recent RMP in Mesa County indicates the BLMs intent to limit access to public roads which have traditionally been open to motorized, horse, and foot...

  • Harry Reid: Why Care About Tom Bradys Balls When Redskins Are Being Racist?

    Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) complained on the floor of the upper chamber today that America is more concerned with Tom Bradys delfating balls than the Washington Redskins racist name. Brady received a four-game suspension as a result of Deflategate and the New England Patriots were fine d $1 million and stripped of two draft picks. Yesterday the National Football League punished one of its most recognizable players for allegedly having tampered with game balls, Reid said. I find it stunning that the NFL is more concerned about how much air is in a ball than with a racist...

    1.) Dingy Harry Strikes Again Senate Democrat Leader Harry Reids disdain for his Republican colleagues is on full display as he aims to force a vote on the nomination of Loretta Lynch as U.S. Attorney General. In fact, the former Majority Leader is threatening to hijack the Senate. Given the weakness of the Republican majority, why not! I know parliamentary procedure around here and were going to put up with this for a little while longer, but not much, Reid said in an interview on MSNBC. Absolutely we can force votes. If we dont get something done soon, I will...

    A full-fledged Democratic trade war has broken out."I love Elizabeth. We're allies on a whole host of issues, but she's wrong on this," President Obama said Tuesday night in an interview on MSNBC's Hardball with Chris Matthews, referring to liberal Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren.Warren and the progressive left, scarred by trade deals past like the North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA, have launched a vocal fight against granting the president so-called "fast-track" authority to negotiate a 12-country Pacific trade deal. "Are you ready to fight?" Warren said at a rally April 15 with labor leaders and Vermont liberal Sen....

    The open in-fighting ramped up after a breakthrough on the historic bill was announced. The most important trade bill in a decade has pitted Harry Reid against President Barack Obama. Liberal Democrat Rosa DeLauro against moderate Democrat Ron Kind. Labor unions against pro-business Democrats. And Elizabeth Warren against virtually everyone who supports a landmark piece of legislation that would allow the president to close what could be the biggest free-trade deal in history. The open warring among Democrats over fast-track trade legislation, and the partys broader existential crisis on free trade, grew more pronounced Thursday as senior lawmakers announced a...

    Dr. Salomon Melgen is being held in a Florida jail without bond on a second set of charges. The Florida ophthalmologist is one of three men involved in an August 2012 meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. That gathering is at the center of criminal charges of corruption brought by a New Jersey federal grand jury against Melgen and one of the other two key players, Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ). The third key player, the man who actually organized that August 2012 meeting, is Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV). Hes being protected by a selective Department...
