    Talking Points Memo's Livewire ^ | February 13, 2016 | Lauren Fox
    Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) released a statement Saturday night following the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia that contained a warning shot to Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY): Don't play politics with filling vacancies on the Supreme Court bench. "It would be unprecedented in recent history for the Supreme Court to go a year with a vacant seat," the statement read. "Failing to fill this vacancy would be a shameful abdication of one of the Senate's most essential Constitutional responsibilities." Read the full statement below: "There is no doubt Justice Antonin Scalia was a brilliant man. We...

    Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Friday pressed Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) to drop his Senate bid amid scrutiny surrounding his hedge fund, according to a statement provided to The Hill. Reid challenged Grayson's progressive credentials and criticized the Florida congressman's "moral compass" based on the recent reports about his fund. "These deeply troubling allegations should disqualify anyone from a seat in the U.S. Senate," Reid said in a statement, which was first reported by The Associated Press. "Alan Grayson used his status as a congressman to unethically promote his Cayman Islands hedge funds, and he should drop out...

    U.S. Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid on Friday called for U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson to drop out of the race for a Senate seat in Florida. Reid said in a statement that Grayson claims to be progressive but seems to have "no moral compass." He said Grayson used his office to unethically promote a hedge fund that until recently had been based in the Cayman Islands. Grayson is running in the Democratic primary to replace U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio. His campaign did not immediately respond to Reid's call to quit the race. ...

    A day after the Iowa caucuses and a week from the New Hampshire primary, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid is back blasting the lack of diversity in the states that come before his home of Nevada in the presidential nominating process. Asked about the outcome in Iowa, where Sen. Bernard Sanders, I-Vt., finishing very narrowly behind former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Reid highlighted his role in changing the process to put more focus on the subsequent contests in states with more diverse Democratic electorates. His efforts helped move Nevada’s Democratic caucuses earlier in the electoral calendar.

Reid was asked outside a closed policy luncheon on Capitol Hill today about Trump's compliments. "I've always had a good relationship with Nancy Pelosi. I've never had a problem. Reid will be gone," Trump told MSNBC yesterday, in reference to the Nevada senator's impending retirement. "I always had a decent relationship with Reid, although lately, obviosuly, I haven't been dealing with him so he'll actually use my name as the ultimate -- you know, as the ultimate of...

Senate Democrats plan to force their Republican colleagues to take sides on the GOP presidential frontrunner's most controversial proposals by offering them as amendments to other bills this year. "Since Republican leaders in the House and Senate have pledged loyalty to Trump, the obvious next step is to vote on his policies, including his unconstitutional plan to bar people from entering the United States based on their religion," Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said in a Thursday statement, referencing Trump’s...

    Republican lawmakers reportedly laughed at House Speaker Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) after he told them he had been given a promise from Senate Democratic Leader Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV). Lawmakers were amused at Ryan's naiveté for thinking that Reid is someone their party can trust. "I know, I know," Ryan replied with a smile, according to The Hill. Reid and Ryan just finished working together to help pass a $1 trillion dollar spending bill, which many argue contained far more liberal policies than conservative ones. Reid has promised Ryan that he will return to regular order in the New Year....

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...

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is siding with many Democrats in criticizing conservative Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia over comments he made about African American student achievement during oral arguments earlier this week of the affirmative action case, Fisher v. University of Texas. "I thought his remarks were very tough,"Trump said of Scalia in an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper that aired Sunday. "They were very, very tough to a certain community," the Republican front-runner continued. "I thought it was very tough to the African-American community." Scalia's remarks, made Wednesday, drew accusations of racism from Democrats and liberal activists who...

    If there's a small silver lining for the Republican Party in the bonanza of insanity that is Donald Trump's candidacy, it's this: He's single-handedly managed to make the rest of the GOP field look downright reasonable by comparison. There's less talk of a "clown car" primary when the main attraction is the ringmaster of his own circus. Each day, Trump seems to reach new heights of absurdity, offensiveness, and popularity among Republican poll respondents. On Tuesday, he called fellow candidate Lindsey Graham an "idiot" and handed out the South Carolina senator's cellphone number a response to Graham referring to...

    Presidential candidate Donald Trump's proposal to bar all Muslims from entering the United States has reignited an old debate about the Republican Party, which some see as the party of intolerance. Liberal critics have long insisted that Republican candidates use coded language that sounds respectable on its face but covertly signals an outdated view of race, ethnicity and religion to their constituents. Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) voiced this perspective on Tuesday, saying that Trump's words and policies simply reveal the true values of the party and its supporters....

"It is deeply disturbing," Reid suggested, "to hear a Supreme Court justice endorse racist ideas from the bench of the nation's highest court."

"If we fail to meet that deadline, it will be another evidence of a Republican failure in leadership." Reid said if Republicans fail to pass an omnibus appropriations bill by midnight on Dec. 11 -- a date they picked -- it will be because they continue to attach their "ideological agenda" to the must-pass omnibus. "No legislation will pass with these poison pill riders. We passed a bipartisan budget agreement, we did it through good-faith negotiations. It was...

The votes could become major campaign fodder in next year's Senate races. A third amendment proposed by Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid...

Reports say Rove helped to set up a meeting between Carson's campaign and billionaire Steve Wynn, but additional details were not immediately clear. Wynn, who owns casinos and hotels across the country, has contributed a combined $30,000 to political action committees associated with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie in this election cycle. Ben Carson presently ranks fourth in the Washington Examiner's power rankings. Wynn is munificent when it comes to campaign contributions, and he rarely discriminates between parties.

    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.

    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...

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.

    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...

Politico revealed Thursday that Democratic Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid asked White House chief of staff Denis McDonough twice this year to have Obama publicly announce he would veto a UN Security Council call establishing Palestine. On both occasions, Obama flatly ignored the request. Reid had made the requests in an...

    Bill Hemmer: People on the outside see this and think that thats just Washington doing what Washington wants to do. And, damn the laws. And, you know whats going on in the campaign trail, Democrat or Republican. Thats why Bernie Sanders is getting 15,000 people at a rally. Thats why Donald Trump is at 32% of the polling right now. People do not like what is coming out of Washington and they think the smell stinks Mitch McConnell: Well I agree with that. This is a deal supported by Democrats only. A deal negotiated by a Democratic president. Lets make...

    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.

    Washington (CNN)Harry Reid ridiculed Donald Trump and the Republican presidential field Tuesday, saying candidates were "scared" to confront the billionaire businessman because he's "speaking to their hearts." In an interview with CNN, the Senate Democratic leader said Trump's temperament "is not much different than the rest of the team he's running against." "Donald Trump is speaking for the Republican Party," Reid said, sitting in the Lyndon B. Johnson room just off the Senate floor. "Why do the Republicans who are running for president never criticize him on anything?" Told that Jeb Bush has been sharply critical of Trump, Reid shrugged...

    Democrats will try to mount a filibuster to block the Iran nuclear deal from even having to reach President Obamas desk for a veto, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid signaled Sunday in a statement. He and his party colleagues already have enough committed supporters that they would be able to sustain an Obama veto and allow the Iran deal to proceed, but a filibuster would be an even bigger coup, halting the issue earlier in the process and heading off a protracted and potentially politically costly veto fight. I recently informed Senator McConnell that after a period of...

    Washington, D.C. Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statements on reports that Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid may filibuster a Senate vote on the Iran Nuclear Deal: First, the president did an end-run around the Constitution by refusing to submit the Iran deal as a treaty requiring a two-thirds vote of the Senate for approval. Now Harry Reid wants to deny the American people a voice entirely by blocking an up-or-down vote on this terrible deal. If Harry Reid has his way, Congress wont even get the little oversight we were provided in Corker-Cardin. He is obstructing because...

    The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported President Obama spoke at a Nevada State Democratic Party fundraiser for Catherine Cortez Masto, who is running for Harry Reids Senate seat in 2016. The event was held at the Henderson home of Las Vegas Sun editor and publisher Brian Greenspun. Contributions at the event hit a high of $33,400. The event, which drew more than 100 people, raised more than $300,000. What kind of newspaper is the Las Vegas Sun that its editor and publisher hosts Democratic Party fundraisers with the president? A routinely partisan one. Jon Ralston, just hailed by Chuck Todd on...

    LAS VEGAS There are the people on his side on the Iran deal, President Barack Obama said Monday evening. Then there are the crazies. Back from a notably uneventful and restful two-week vacation in Marthas Vineyard, Obama was immediately on the road for a short trip here, first to speak at a green energy conference hosted by retiring Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, then to raise money for his preferred successor, former Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto. Ruddy from the sun, Obama described himself as refreshed, renewed, recharged a little feisty. And he delivered, recounting the ride...

    Even after Senator Chuck Schumer announced that he intends to vote against the Iran deal next month, most political analysts predicted that Congress wouldn't be able to block the agreement. That scenario seems even more likely now that Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid has thrown his full support behind the nuclear agreement. Calling the deal the "best path to stop Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon," Reid said in a statement released Sunday night, "I strongly support the historic agreement and will do everything in my power to ensure that it stands." Reid said critics of the deal have "failed...

    Senate Minority Leader Harry M. Reid gave a forceful endorsement Sunday to the nuclear deal with Iran, a key boost that provides continued momentum for preventing Congress from blocking President Obamas pact. The Nevada Democrat said the deal, which lifts economic sanctions against the rogue nation for pledges to limit its nuclear program, is the best way to curtail Irans military ambitions, and he pledged to round up more support to thwart its opponents. Im going to do everything in my power to make sure the deal stands, he said in a telephone interview with The Washington Post from his...

    As the mainstream media and liberal talking heads slam Donald Trump as a racist for wanting to get rid of birthright citizenship, they ought to take a look in the mirror. In a speech before Congress in 1993 and uncovered by conservative website The Right Scoop, Sen. blasted the fact that illegal aliens were given rewards for having babies in the United States. Heck, he even used the dreaded term illegal alien. If making it easy to be an illegal alien isnt enough, how about offering a reward for being an illegal immigrant? Reid asked. No sane country would do...
