  • GOP Rep. Pete King to buck party, vote for Democrats' coronavirus relief bill

    Rep. Pete King (R-N.Y.) said he plans to buck party lines and vote in favor of the $3 trillion coronavirus relief package proposed by House Democrats and slated to come to the floor on Friday, the New York Times first reported Wednesday. King — who represents one of the hardest-hit districts in the state and is set to retire at the end of this term — said while there are provisions that give him pause, he feels it’s critical that Congress provide funding for state and local governments that have been disproportionately affected by the deadly virus. The New York...

    Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., had some harsh words for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., after the latter suggested that state governments should be able to declare bankruptcy during the coronavirus pandemic. ".@senatemajldr McConnell’s dismissive remark that States devastated by Coronavirus should go bankrupt rather than get the federal assistance they need and deserve is shameful and indefensible," King tweeted Wednesday. "To say that it is 'free money' to provide funds for [...] cops, firefighters and healthcare workers makes McConnell the Marie Antoinette of the Senate," he added.

    With the retirement of 14 term Republican Congressman Peter King, a South Shore Long Island Congressional District opens up for the first time in years. In what was seen as a safe district for Republicans with Peter King, New York's Second Congressional District now becomes a tossup between Republicans and Democrats. Stretching from the Town of Hempstead in Nassau County to the Town of Islip in Suffolk County, Democrats enjoy a slight enrollment advantage in this 70% Suffolk County, 30% Nassau County District.   As of mid-November 2019, the district was home to 159,500 Democrats and 149,469 Republicans but add...

    Longtime Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) announced Monday that he will not seek reelection next year. King said in a statement on Facebook that “after 28 years of spending 4 days a week in Washington, D.C., it is time to end the weekly commute and be home in Seaford." "This was not an easy decision. But there is a season for everything and Rosemary and I decided that, especially since we are both in good health, it is time to have the flexibility to spend more time with our children and grandchildren," King said. "My daughter’s recent move to North Carolina...

    Rep. Pete King (N.Y.) is the first House Republican to back a bill in the chamber seeking to ban assault weapons. "They are weapons of mass slaughter," King told the New York Daily News on Monday shortly after his support for the Assault Weapons Ban of 2019 as a co-sponsor became public on Congress's website. “I don’t see any need for them in everyday society,” he added.

    Lawmakers are returning to Congress on Monday following a racist series of tweets from President Donald Trump aimed at four Democratic lawmakers, and Republican leaders as well as rank-and-file members are feeling the pressure to weigh in on the President's comments. But many leaders in the party are so far not weighing in publicly -- including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. "If he issues a statement on this we'll be sure to forward," said McConnell spokesman David Popp in response to a question from CNN. While many Republican leaders in Congress have thus far not spoken out, some GOP members...

    A powerful House Republican says President Obama’s FBI and CIA committed “severe, serious abuses” against then-presidential candidate Donald Trump that soon will be exposed. Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., told John Catsimatidis of New York City’s AM 970 “The Answer” that the Obama administration had no legal basis to probe the Trump campaign, The Hill reported. “There is no doubt to me there was severe, serious abuses that were carried out in the FBI and, I believe, top levels of the CIA against the president of the United States or, at that time, presidential candidate Donald Trump,” King said. “There was...

    Ordinarily, we don’t get too excited these days when we hear a politician make a prediction about what will and will not come out of the ongoing “Spygate” origins probe being conducted by Attorney General William Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham. But that’s because we often hear such predictions coming from the usual suspects who belong to the House Freedom Caucus. Don’t get us wrong, many of those members have doggedly pursued details and leads in this massive scandal involving an operation to literally depose a sitting, duly elected president. But all smoke and no fire gets old. So...

    While giving a press conference in Japan, President Donald Trump confirmed that he agreed with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un that former Vice President Joe Biden is a “low-IQ individual.” And some Republicans did not like it. Peter King, New York congressman: @RepPeteKing Wrong for @POTUS Trump to criticize @JoeBiden in Japan and to agree with Kim Jong-un. Politics stops at water’s edge. Never right to side with murderous dictator vs. fellow American. Lindsey Graham, South Carolina senator, when asked if he was disappointed by Trump’s response: “Yes, I don’t think it is very helpful to agree with Kim...

    Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.) on Tuesday said President Trump should not be allowed to attend next week’s D-Day anniversary event after Trump sided with North Korean leader Kim Jon Un in his criticism of former Vice President Joe Biden. “Disgusting display by Trump. No mention of #MemorialDay. He shouldn’t be allowed at anniversary of D-Day June 6. I was there Sunday. What an honor to recall what brave Americans did for freedom,” Cohen tweeted Tuesday. Cohen cited recent comments by Rep. Pete King (R-N.Y.), who called out Trump’s remarks about Biden, but also asked where the rest of the GOP...

The 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act limited the SALT deduction to $10,000, and married couples filing jointly are harmed by having the same limit to $10,000 cap as individuals. The SALT Relief and Marriage Penalty Elimination Act would make the SALT deduction equal to the standard deduction taken by taxpayers, encouraging...

    I am concerned about Republicans deserting President Trump to side with the Democrats. At the present time, it is about the government shutdown. President Trump says until he gets the money for the border wall, the government will continue with the shutdown. We must remember that was one of his campaign promises, and he has tried to keep those to the American people. He just finished a speech in which he stated most of the American people want the wall, and I know he is right. I do! We have a responsibility to keep our Country sovereign, but the Dems...

    Since the Vietnam War, liberals have been known for their great disdain for America’s service members, despite their efforts to hide it. During NBC’s latest edition of Saturday Night Live, that disdain poked its ugly head out in the form of supposed comedian Pete Davidson mocking Republican congressional candidate and former Navy SEAL Dan Crenshaw about the eye he lost to an IED blast while serving in Afghanistan, “or whatever” according to the funny man. The vile attack came during the SNL’s faux news segment “Weekend Update” where Davidson was mocking multiple Republican politicians for their looks. The comedian stated...

    The “Unmasking Antifa Act of 2018,” legislation introduced in the House, carries a potential 15-year prison sentence for those caught engaging in behaviors typically associated with the “antifa” movement of anti-fascist activists. Under the act, anyone “wearing a mask” or in disguise who “injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates any person … in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege” is subject to a fine or up to 15 years in prison. The bill was introduced in the House last month but received renewed attention on Tuesday after alt-right personality Mike Cernovich encouraged his followers to call their...

    Contrary to previous reporting, representative Peter King (R-NY) reveals that yesterday Devin Nunes and Trey Gowdy were not allowed to see the originating documents during their visit with the DOJ and FBI officials. Representative Trey Gowdy (U-DC) reluctantly admitted moments ago, the statement by Peter King was true. The DOJ refused to allow Nunes & Gowdy access to the “EC” (electronic communication) document that initiated the FBI counterintelligence operation. Instead, Nunes and Gowdy were given an opaque description of the EC process; and told to come back next week if they wanted to talk more. Additionally, Peter King reveals the...

    A troubled teen — dubbed “mentally disturbed” by President Trump — opened fire at a Florida school nearly one year after a law undid a regulation making it harder for people with mental illnesses to purchase a gun. Most Republicans — and the National Rifle Association — cheered the repeal of the Obama-era measure meant to prevent future massacres as experts question what can be done to prevent such tragedies.
