    Democrats in House of Reps. joined J Street in supporting Obama administration's attempt to force Israel into making painful concessions Seventy-four Democrats in the House of Representatives have joined the dovish J Street organization in supporting the Obama administration's attempt to force Israel into making painful concessions to the Palestinian Authority. “In our view, support for a two-state resolution is inseparable from such support for Israel, its special relationship with the United States, and its very survival as a democratic homeland for the Jewish people,” the letter said. Seven Jewish members signed the letter, including Reps. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.), John...

    Former Congressman Maurice Hinchey from upstate New York was a target of the mob during the 1980s when he was a State Assembly member investigating its "illegal dumping of toxic waste at landfills," and the politician resorted to his Second Amendment remedy to protect himself as reported by Brian Tumulty for the Ithaca Journal: "Hinchey began carrying a pistol because he was advised by law enforcement authorities they couldn't guarantee round-the-clock protection from a possible hit by organized crime. "My life was being threatened and the operation in Albany told me I should begin carrying my own gun," Hinchey recalled....

    Yesterday, YNN reported that Democratic incumbent Rep. Maurice Hinchey had assaulted a newspaper reporter after a debate with George Phillips in the NY-22 race. YNN’s videographer reported that Hinchey had “made a beeline” for Kingston Daily Freeman reporter Bill Kemble after he had asked Hinchey about a potential conflict of interest in the Partition Street Project, a project for which Hinchey had earmarked federal funds and in which the Freeman had reported Hinchey and his business partners to have financial interests, directly and indirectly. Hinchey’s campaign released a statement late yesterday that Kemble “took an aggressive step” towards the Congressman,...

    Duck! Your congressman may be swinging for your jaw -- all because you dared to disturb His Majesty by asking a question. The Democrats can't tout their achievements because they don't have any. So instead, an increasing number of Democratic politicians are trying to reach voters -- with the business end of their fists. Here's a quick tour of the Democrats' greatest hits...and punches, grabs, and strangulations. Rep. Bob Etheridge (D-NC) got the ball rolling in June, when a student approached him on a Washington street and asked if he supported the Obama agenda. The seven-term congressman responded with the...

    ROSENDALE — A town justice on Thursday dismissed the harassment charge against U.S. Rep. Maurice Hinchey that was filed by a man who claimed the congressman struck him on the head during the Rosendale Street Festival. The judge, Robert N. Vosper Jr., said the alleged action did not rise to the level of criminal prosecution. He also cited the probability that no charge would have been filed had Hinchey, D-Hurley, not been a public official. Vosper, in a decision dated Wednesday but not handed down until Thursday afternoon, said Hinchey should not be held to "any higher standard than any...

    ROSENDALE, NY—Controversial upstate New York Congressman Maurice Hinchey has been ordered to town court to answer a charge that he struck a constituent during a July event. Democrat Hinchey, who represents Ithaca and much of the state’s Southern Tier, has been directed to appear in Rosendale Town Court on September 9 to answer a charge of Harassment Second Degree. According to the Kingston Daily Freeman the charge stems from an altercation between Hinchey and a local member of the National Rifle Association: Paul Lendvay, 46, of Rosendale, the chairman of the Catskill Regional Friends of the National Rifle Association, had...

Maurice Hinchey, promised to help human services agencies secure federal funding and criticized the economic policies of the Bush administration. Clinton and Hinchey attended two events together: a fund-raiser for the five-term Democratic congressman and a forum at the Family Partnership Center, a one-stop-shopping health and human services center. The visit to the Family Partnership Center was designed to give Hinchey and Clinton insight into the work of some of the roughly 30 agencies that call the North Hamilton Street facility home. While there, they heard...

Today, Republican challenger George Phillips trumps Hinchey with a surprise endorsement from former New York City Mayor Ed Koch, a Democrat who has a track record of backing common-sense Republicans. Hot Air reports exclusively this morning that Koch will deliver a speech tomorrow afternoon in Kingston announcing his endorsement of Phillips. Why is Koch opposing the Democratic incumbent?

    Not that Ithaca Journal readers would know it from the reporting. They sniff at the notion that the GOP might make a concerted effort to push Maurice Hinchey out of Congress, then neglect to point out the rather troubling development for an incumbent of having a challenger surpass him in fundraising in an election year: Democratic Rep. Maurice Hinchey, meanwhile, is not a major GOP target in the 22nd Congressional District covering Ithaca and Binghamton and stretching east to Poughkeepsie on the other side of the Hudson River. Yes, yes, nothing to see here, just move along. Or — perhaps...

    Keith Ellison, widely hailed as America's first Muslim congressman, could more accurately be described as CAIR and Hamas' man in Congress. Congressman Ellison has been a regular presence at CAIR fundraisers and at pro-Hamas rallies in the United States. As a former member of Farrakhan's Nation of Islam , Ellison has enough anti-semitic and Islamist credentials to satisfy anyone, and had expressed openly anti-semitic beliefs in the past. Since Ellison got his start with CAIR , his attempt to provide support for Hamas is completely unsurprising. Both Hamas and CAIR are projects of the Muslim Brotherhood, which also helped...

Hinchey said the war in Iraq is part of a larger plan perpetrated by “the political right wing nationally in America going back to the 1970s” to fund military endeavors to divert money from domestic programs. “The situation that we're facing today is not accidental,” he said. “It's a conscious idea of this administration and others like it with the...

    Liberal Democrats are attempting to muzzle conservative talk radio: they are assaulting free speech. Like the communists in the former Soviet Union, America’s liberals seek to crush dissent by consolidating control over the media—especially talk radio, which has emerged as the dominant medium for conservative opinion. Allies close to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi are promoting legislation, which if passed, will take off the air prominent conservative radio hosts such as Michael Savage, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly—along with thousands of smaller conservative broadcasters. The bill, entitled the "Media Ownership Reform Act," is sponsored by Rep. Maurice Hinchey, a...

    Congressman Maurice Hinchey (D-NY) believes Karl Rove was behind CBS’s infamous Bush National Guard memos. Today on Sean Hannity’s radio show, Hinchey asserted that Rove “presented” the documents so that CBS would pick up the story. “There’s a significant amount of evidence,” he insisted, while conspicuously failing to provide any. Two years ago Congressman Hinchey made a similar claim at a community forum in Ithaca, New York. A LGF reader was there and recorded what he said. Audio is available at Little Green Footballs.

    U.S. Rep. Maurice Hinchey is New York's king of comped travel — racking up a stunning $161,393 tab footed by special-interest groups, the fifth most of any federal lawmaker. The Ulster County Democrat has taken 25 trips during the past five years to such far-flung, chic locales as Prague, Rome, Moscow, Shanghai and Morocco — courtesy of private groups intent on influencing the congressman. He's been on the road for 140 days since Jan. 1, 2000 — a full 38 days more than the House of Representatives' 102-day session this year. Hinchey racked up hotel bills in excess of $30,000...

The premise of the interview was straightforward: Did Hinchey have any information to support his claim that White House Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove planted the fake documents on which CBS News based its discredited report...
