  • Gillibrand’s own sons have no place in her ‘future’

    “The future is female.” It’s a favorite slogan of the identity left that has now gone mainstream. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand tweeted it on Wednesday, adding that the future is also “intersectional” and “powered by our belief in one another.” But if the future is female, what happens to our boys? And what message are we sending our present-day girls? Gillibrand is one of about 30 Democrats considering running for president in 2020, and the tweet suggests she’s seizing some strategic left-wing ground (in a primary field crowded with lefties) by appealing to the Dems’ identity-obsessed base. Her mentioning “intersectionality” is...

    Heather Mac Donald has written and spoken extensively about how identity politics is hampering America’s ability to maintain its dominance in STEM fields. Our main competitors, most notably China, are focused on making sure the best scientists, mathematicians, and engineers are doing the work. They care nothing about gender. And they spend virtually every dollar related to STEM on hard research and analysis. The U.S., by contrast, is preoccupied with the gender and (to a lesser extent) the race and ethnicity of who is in the lab. And we pour money into promoting identity politics in STEM. Indeed, Elizabeth Harrington...
  • New York Democrat Gillibrand mocked for saying future is 'female' and 'intersectional'

    The future may be female, but critics say Kirsten Gillibrand's role may be limited. The Democratic U.S. senator from New York was widely mocked Wednesday after saying the future is “female” and “intersectional,” in a wink to the progressive wing of her party. “Our future is: Female, Intersectional, Powered by our belief in one another. And we’re just getting started,” Gillibrand wrote in a tweet. Critics claimed Gillibrand was trying to pander to progressives ahead of a likely run for president in 2020, looking to portray herself as a feminist firebrand. U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., for one, fired back...

    WASHINGTON — Nancy Pelosi is facing a renewed threat to her leadership of House Democrats from a group of moderates, creating a standoff that is highlighting emerging tensions between the emboldened left flank of her caucus and its expanded ranks of those in the middle. Nine Democrats in the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus, an offshoot of the moderate think tank No Labels, are warning they could vote against Pelosi for House Speaker unless she agrees to rule changes that they say will help "break the gridlock" in Congress. Pelosi is expected to cruise through an internal Democratic caucus meeting on...

    Say you're Linda Sarsour—a big BDS fan and fierce critic of Israel. Or you're Tamika Mallory—a big Farrakhan fan who has refused to renounce him after he recently compared Jews to "termites." We've got good news for you. You've got a friend at CNN: Alisyn Camerota. On New Day this morning, Camerota interviewed Teresa Shook, founder of the Women's March. Shook has called for Sarsour, Mallory and other March co-chairs to step down over their anti-Semitism and homophobia. | [snip] Camerota read (and put on screen) some eyewash that Sarsour and company put out for the press: "We are imperfect....

  • If 'community grid' replaces Interstate 81 in Syracuse, what will happen to the land?

    SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- If a "community grid" is chosen to replace Interstate 81 in downtown Syracuse, what will happen to the land that's now under the aging viaduct's shadow? Whether it will be turned into green space or developed commercially is still an open question, according to city and state officials. A group of local architects is hoping to force the issue. The local chapter of the American Institute of Architects estimated in a recent paper that 18.6 acres of land will be made available if the 1.4-mile elevated highway is taken down. Taking the viaduct down and beefing up...

    Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) on Wednesday accused President Donald Trump of fomenting hate and division, citing an increase in hate crimes through the state of New York. “I think we are in a moment in time where our country and our morality as a country is literally on knife’s edge. We have a president who has blurred, even destroyed the lines between right vs. wrong. He has demonized immigrants. He has created division and hate throughout society,” she said during a speech at the National Action Network Conference. “In New York State, we have more hate crimes than we have...

    U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand on Monday said she will support the construction of a street-level community grid to replace the elevated portion of Interstate 81 in Syracuse.Until now, Gillibrand declined to take a position on the issue, saying it was up to Central New Yorkers to choose the best option for replacing the 1.4-mile viaduct that cuts through the heart of Syracuse.Gillibrand, D-N.Y., said during a visit to Syracuse on Monday that she decided to speak out after discussions with community stakeholders who favor the grid over a tunnel or new elevated highway."Given where the stakeholders are -- and given what...

    It will come as no surprise to regular observers of New York politics that Senator Kirsten Gillibrand handily won another term on Tuesday with roughly two-thirds of the vote. (There was some ticket splitting going on because she bagged roughly 400K more votes than Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo managed in his victory.) Having put that simple chore behind her, Gillibrand wasted no time getting booked for Stephen Colbert’s show. The host asked her the obvious question concerning her plans for 2020 and received an equally predictable answer. She’s giving it, “a long, hard thought of consideration.” (New York Times) Senator...

    As a member in good standing, I received the following request and duly filled out the survey. However, once that survey was completed, I was then asked to fill out yet another political survey! The second survey asked about my political affiliation (the first time the AJLI has asked this), how I felt about Donald Trump, where I got my news and then asked me which woman among three I would prefer to see challenge Donald Trump. The women were Kirsten Gillibrand, Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama! The assumption in all the questions was that AJLI members were anti-Trump. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________...

    It seems like only yesterday that I was writing about New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and her surprising pledge (during a debate) to serve her full, six-year term if re-elected nine days from now. (Okay… it was only yesterday.) The claim effectively removed her from contention for the 2020 Democratic presidential primary. At the time, I noted that “stories about politicians lying or going back on their word later rank right up there with dog-bites-man reports,” before going on to speculate that she might not have had that great of a shot at the nomination anyway.

    With all the drama flooding the news cycle over the past week, this story could have easily flown under the radar. One of the names most commonly mentioned as a possible 2020 Democratic nominee is New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand. She’s currently engaged in a re-election bid, however, and she participated in a debate against her Republican opponent Chele Farley on Thursday night. During the questioning, one of the moderators asked Gillibrand why she was sitting on so much campaign cash (in excess of $10M) and if that meant she was plotting a POTUS run. In fact, the question was...

Cuomo, and two top Dems — Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and attorney general candidate Letitia James — are ducking debates with their darkhorse opponents.

    Hillary Clinton doesn't believe former President Bill Clinton's 1990s extramarital affair with then-White House intern Monica Lewinsky constituted an abuse of power. "No. No," Hillary Clinton said during an interview with "CBS Sunday Morning" when asked directly whether her husband took advantage of his position in 1995 to instigate sexual relations with Lewinsky when she was 22 years old.
