  • Abolishing ICE To Become 2020 Campaign Issue For Democrats

    03/10/2018 5:59:01 AM PST · by Helicondelta · 118 replies ^ | 03/09/2018
    Once a fringe idea on the far-left, abolishing the nation’s immigration enforcement agency now looks likely to become a campaign issue in the Democrats’ 2020 presidential primary. Former Hillary Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon came out for abolishing the agency in January. “ICE operates as an unaccountable deportation force,” Fallon argued. “Dems running in 2020 should campaign on ending the agency in its current form.” “Any serious defender of undocumented people in this country would look at ICE and know that it is a cancer that needs to be excised from the U.S. Pretending that the most diseased levers of...
  • Booker, Gillibrand Want to Stymie Special Interest Spending, Except Labor and Ideological Groups

    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...

    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?”...

    Chicago Democrats have a saying about unwanted help who may want to wet their beaks in the trough of public service: “We don’t want nobody nobody sent.” And former President Bill Clinton is now that nobody. National Democrats hugged him as recently as the 2016 presidential campaign, ... Now they don’t want him anywhere near the 2018 congressional midterm elections. How can you have Bill around while you reach for that weaponized #MeToo movement and rewrite your history? It would be so awkward. Politicians don’t want voters to realize that those who shout the loudest often sip their hypocrisy quietly,...

    She’s the senator who’ll take the political world from HildaBeast to GilliBeast proving that in the entitled-to-govern Democrat world, the more life changes the more it stays the same. Whenever Senator Kirsten Gillibrand looks at herself in the mirror, as she is often wont to do, she sees her “greatest role model in politics” Hillary Clinton, only a younger, hotter button version. Like Hillary, Gillibrand sees her gender first, second and last. That’s because in today’s political climate, being gender conscious is all but guaranteed to take you to the top. For those who drove Hillary Clinton down to a...

    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...

    The Hill ^ | February 11, 2018 | Brett Samuels
    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...

    New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand will try to bait President Trump on Tuesday by bringing one of the commander-in-chief’s loudest critics to his State of the Union address — San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz. “It is an honor to announce that Mayor @CarmenYulinCruz of San Juan, Puerto Rico will join me at the #SOTU. Throughout the crisis in Puerto Rico, Mayor Cruz has shown extraordinary leadership and fearless advocacy for her city,” Gillibrand tweeted Monday. “I hope Mayor Cruz’s presence at #SOTU will remind the president and my colleagues in Congress of our urgent responsibility to help Puerto Rico...

    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...

    A prominent donor to the Democratic Party says she is considering withdrawing support for senators who urged their colleague Al Franken to resign after he was accused of sexual misconduct. The donor, Susie Tompkins Buell, has been one of the Democratic Party’s most generous supporters for decades. In particular, she has been a champion of female politicians, including Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Maria Cantwell of Washington. Last month, those senators were among the dozens who called for Franken to resign from the Senate after at least six women accused him of sexual harassment...

    During the relatively dead news cycle between Christmas and New Years, most media outlets choose to burn up some space with retrospectives on the year that’s ending. Politico is no exception, and one of their features this week was dedicated to people who had found themselves engaged in Twitter feuds with the President, with an eye toward how well they had “survived” the encounter. They chose to highlight Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski, Kathy Griffin, Alan Dershowitz, John Podesta and New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand. Rather than a series of survivor stories, most of these (with one notable exception) seem...

    Democrats are trying to take out their own in the race for Illinois’ 3rd Congressional District…all because he’s not progressive enough by the party’s standards. According to a report in Politico, Lipinski is up for one of the toughest political fights of his life against the much more leftist candidate Marie Newman, a former marketing consultant and businesswoman, who’s nabbed endorsements from Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, Gloria Steinem, Democracy for America,, NARAL, Human Rights Campaign, and Progressive Campaign Committee. “Dan Lipinski has a real, formidable challenger like he’s never had before.

    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 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,...

    USA Today and all other news outlets who aid and abet political opportunists, such as the Hillary Clinton-like Kirsten Gillibrand, should be judged for what they are: unprofessionally at work in the toilet known as today’s “journalism”. The ‘News’ is in the toilet and so are the minds of most elected Democrats. So why should anyone be surprised that the USA Today’s editorial board has issued a statement concluding that: “A president who would all but call Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand a # is not fit to clean the toilets in the Barack Obama Presidential Library or to shine the shoes...

    Mika Brzezinski’s broadside against President Trump seemed scripted. Even so, on today’s Morning Joe, Mika got emotional as she lashed out at the President for tweeting that Senator Kirsten Gillibrand “would do anything” for a campaign contribution. As she and her Morning Joe cohorts are inclined to do, Mika engaged in some armchair psychoanalysis. Calling him a “sexist pig,” and asserting that he “is obsessed with women” who criticize him, Mika said that Trump “has some special problem with women.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
