    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...

    Two New York legislators are launching a campaign to designate the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village as the first national park site honoring LGBT history. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and U.S. Rep. Jerrold Nadler are making their announcement in front of the tavern that was the scene of a 1969 uprising that was a key moment for the nascent gay rights movement.

    Speaking on the House floor Friday in opposition to the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (H.R. 3504), Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said the requirement that a baby who survives an abortion be taken to the hospital may kill children. It may be that the baby is too frail to transport, but along comes this bill and says, we dont care about the real situation that doctor faces with that infant. We know how to practice medicine in every situationwe in Congress. So were going to say it must be brought to the hospital, even if that may kill the child....

    Representative Jerrold Nadler, shown in 2014, is the lone Jewish Democrat from New York to endorse an agreement with Iran. Credit Andrew Burton/Getty Images Representative Jerrold Nadler was being pulled hard from all sides. Close allies in the pro-Israel community told him a nuclear deal with Iran would doom the Jewish state. His Jewish colleagues in New Yorks congressional delegation had all condemned the pact. Then there was the lobbying from President Obama, first with a phone call, followed by a face-to-face talk in the White House Mr. Nadlers first such meeting in Mr. Obamas tenure. Facing extraordinary pressure,...

    In a sometimes heated meeting with Israels ambassador to the U.S., several House Democrats expressed anger Wednesday over Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahus acceptance of a Republican invitation to address Congress next month. Some of the seven lawmakersall of whom are Jewish and strong supporters of Israelurged the prime minister to postpone the speech or hold it somewhere other than Congress, participants said. They told Ambassador Ron Dermer that Netanyahu was unwise to accept a GOP invitation that bypassed President Barack Obama, and to schedule the speech only two weeks before Netanyahu seeks another term in Israels elections. The meetings purpose...

    Theres a narrative emerging among leftists pundits, commentators, and columnists that the current government shutdown is due to a fundamental flaw in the American form of government. Chris Hayes on MSNBC (ya know, the guy that looks like a 16 year old wannabe economist?) recently dedicated an entire segment of his show to exposing the fatal flaw in our Constitution. According to MSNBCs woefully statist anchor, our Constitutional form of government inhibits the ability for government to adequately (or speedily) race toward action. Which, in a way, is true. Fascism, in comparison, enables for a rapid-response-government that forfeits deliberation for...

    Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said Tuesday it is morally outrageous to ban abortions after five months of pregnancy. It is morally outrageous, frankly, Nadler said about the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (H.R. 1797), a bill that would ban abortions 20 weeks post-fertilization, or five months into pregnancy. Here we go again, he said. Every single year we have to go through the same nonsense with the same morally presumptuous, morally arrogant attitude that we know better. We know better than women and their doctors. We know better about their health care. We know better about their moral choices in...

    U.S. Rep. Grace Meng (D-NY) announced Sunday that she has spearheaded a bipartisan letter calling on the French government to cancel plans to release a convicted terrorist who was sentenced to life in prison for the murder of an American and an Israeli diplomat. The letter, which was sent to Frances Ambassador to the United States, urges French officials to stop the release of George Ibrahim Abdallah, the former head of the Lebanese Armed Revolutionary Brigade who was convicted in 1987 of killing an Israeli diplomat and a U.S. military attach. The U.S. State Department has also expressed its opposition...

    Coach is Right ^ | 1/17/13 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    For liberals facts are never really important. Truth to liberals like Democrat New York City Congressman Jerrold Nadler is what he feels it is. Nadler has said: Hunters dont use large ammunition clips, and as far as self- defense, I mean who are you defending yourself against? If youre defending yourself against a robber two or three or four shots should be enoughperiod. Its a safe bet Nadler has never faced an assailant fueled by adrenalin drugs and alcohol. That doesnt matter, of course, since no one will ever challenge Nadler on his supposed knowledge of the danger presented by...

    In one of the worst school shootings in American history, over two dozen were left dead at a Newtown, Connecticut elementary school earlier today. And, although many facts have yet to emerge, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo called for the public to learn from yet another senseless and horrific act of violence involving guns, and for the government to act in response. We as a society must unify and once and for all crack down on the guns that have cost the lives of far too many innocent Americans, Mr. Cuomo said in a statement. Let this terrible tragedy finally...

    Today, following the shooting massacre of 20 children in a Connecticut school, President Obama said that "meaningful action" needed to be taken to prevent such tragedies from happening in the future. But what "meaningful action" can Obama actually take, given Republican control of the House and Congress' deeply felt fear of the politically mighty National Rifle Association? And politics aside, what new laws would actually solve or make a dent in the country's crazed-gunman problem? Rep. Jerry Nadler said thinks that the president has only one option. "Theres only one meaningful action he can take, which is to take on...

    A veteran Democratic lawmaker believes the nation will go along with stronger gun control laws if President Obama exploits the Newtown, Conn., tragedy and nudges Congress to action. Rep. Jerrold Nadler, who represents portions of New York City, said he was encouraged by Mr. Obamas statement on Friday afternoon that the mass shooting, which claimed the lives of 20 young children, requires meaningful action by Congress, but hopes those words turn into concrete legislation. These incidents, these horrible, horrible incidents are happening more and more frequently. And they will continue to happen more and more frequently until someone with...

    For more than 200 years, Americans have revered the Constitution as the law of the land, but the GOP and tea party heralding of the document in recent months - and the planned recitation on the House floor Thursday - have caused some Democrats to worry that the charter is being misconstrued as the immutable word of God. "They are reading it like a sacred text," said Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), the outgoing chairman of the House Judiciary subcommittee on the Constitution, civil rights and civil liberties

    Politics: Corruption has always been with us, usually in the form of backroom deals and paid-for lawmakers. But sometimes it's depravity of thought and language, and today there's plenty of that to go around. Consider, for a start, the wisdom of one Jerrold Nadler, the Democratic congressman who represents Lower Manhattan, including Wall Street. On CBS' "Face the Nation" Sunday, he likened Republicans to "a bunch of gangsters" because they refused to back down from their principles on the tax-cut deal with President Obama. It wasn't that statement, though, that illustrated corruption of thought and language. It was what came...

"I support Mr. Clyburn. They both have been effective leaders, but Jim Clyburn is our whip, and hes been a good whip, the co-chairwoman of the caucus, Rep. Lynn Woolsey (D-Calif.), told The Hill. Woolsey said the groups co-chairman, Rep. Ral Grijalva (D-Ariz.), was also backing Clyburn, although the caucus as a whole was not taking a position in the intra-party battle.

    This past March, Heather Heidelbaugh, a Pennsylvania Attorney, testified before Congressman Jerrold Nadler's Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties subcommittee about the fraud perpetuated by ACORN. Her testimony alleged violations of the election code, fraud and misrepresentation, and violations of equal protection and due process. Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) was shocked at the testimony and called for a probe of the Democrat's favorite tax fraud group but Nadler's response was to stonewall. Actually what he said is that he would investigate ACORN once he saw some evidence show that a probe was warranted....This morning in Nadler's committee, Rep. Steve King...
