    The signs calling for the repeal of New York’s SAFE Act have become a fixture in the landscape of many parts of upstate New York, including the Finger Lakes. Now a western New York congressman is sponsoring legislation he claims would do what so many Second Amendment supporters have called for since the state Legislature adopted it with virtually no public debate in 2013: Repeal the controversial gun-control legislation called Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act, or SAFE Act. Rep. Chris Collins, R-27 of Clarence, said Monday that he is sponsoring legislation called the Second Amendment Guarantee Act, which he...

    A U.S. senator was caught Tuesday on a 'hot mic,' telling a colleague that a congressman who had challenged her to a duel over her health care positions is 'fat' and 'unattractive.' Maine Sen. Susan Collins was one of three Republican women in the upper chamber of Congress last week who held up a GOP-led package that would have repealed and replaced the Obamacare law. Rep. Blake Farenthold, a fellow Republican from Texas, told a radio host that if she were 'a guy from south Texas, I might ask him to step outside and settle this Aaron Burr-style.' At the...

    In the video, the Arkansas Capitol dome can be seen lit against the night sky as the Dodge Dart accelerates to 10, then 20 mph. “Oh my goodness,” a man says as he flicks on the car’s lights. “Freedom!” The vehicle speeds up the hill, and the last thing that comes into view before a crash is a large, newly installed monument. Authorities say the man in the video is Michael Tate Reed, an alleged serial destroyer of Ten Commandments monuments. He was arrested by state capitol police officers at the scene early Wednesday, according to Chris Powell, a spokesman...

    WASHINGTON -- The Upstate New York congressman who faced overflowing crowds of protesters at town hall meetings managed to raise a record amount of money after the protests gained national attention. U.S. Rep. Tom Reed raised $585,282 in the first quarter of the year, a personal high for the fourth-term Republican from Corning. Reed's cash haul more than doubled the amount raised by each of the other members of Congress from Upstate New York, according to new disclosure reports filed with the Federal Election Commission. "We are off to our best start ever with more than a half-million dollars in...

    <p>You probably have seen viral videos of the disruption of town halls held by Congressman Tom Reed.</p> <p>The media narrative is that there was an organic, grassroots uprising by concerned citizens.</p> <p>Don’t believe it. As detailed below, there was a well-organized national and local campaign to get activists to Reed’s town halls for the specific purpose of creating a protest environment. Instructions how to protest and what questions to ask were circulated. Though the town halls were in the western part of the district, liberal groups in Ithaca and Tompkins county organized protests and got their members there. Other liberal groups like Planned Parenthood also got their people out.</p>

    Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed pushed back Saturday on President-elect Donald Trump’s assessment of civil rights leader and U.S. Rep. John Lewis’ district. In a series of tweets, Reed said: “John Lewis is an American hero & a national treasure. Period. Full stop. “That PEOTUS Trump would attack Congressman Lewis on MLK Day weekend for “all talk…no action” when he bled to actually “Make America Great” is why far less than half the country supports him at the dawn of his presidency.” Trump said Lewis’s district was “in horrible shape and falling apart (not to mention crime infested)” in an early...

    We started the week with Gruber, apologizing for acting stupidly: "In excerpts of these videos I am shown making a series of glib, thoughtless, and sometimes downright insulting comments," Gruber said in prepared testimony to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Tuesday. "I behaved badly, and I will have to live with that…" And apparently so do we – “have to live with that” I mean – as the House of Boner passed the CROmnibus last night. Now our fate is in the hands of Elizabeth Warren.Next, Senator Feinstein acted stupidly by releasing a prosecutor’s brief untainted by any...

    Well that was embarrassing: Big Guy’s controversial selection to head DOJ’s civil rights division, Debo Adegbile, was rejected by the Senate in a stunning defeat. We’re not used to rejection, how did this happen? Why did Dirty Harry let the Debo nomination go to the vote if we didn’t have enough Senators to carry it? As it turns out, it looks like a simple math error: somebody just counted wrong. Harry was assured he had the requisite 51 votes on the floor, with Joey B standing by,just in case. I suppose this sort of thing was bound to happen, what...

    A local congressional candidate now says she will not be hiring a cyber-security firm to look into claims that someone hacked her campaign’s website. The situation started in September, 2013, when Democrat Martha Robertson’s campaign sent an e-mail out to supporters claiming “GOP ops” were trying to hack their website. In early October, the Robertson campaign backed off the “GOP ops” claim during an interview with WETM, but presented evidence showing there were multiple “SQL injection” attacks made on the website. And during an interview with the political site Roll Call, Robertson state the campaign was looking into hiring a...

    Still littered with abandoned cars, Atlanta struggled to find its way back to normal Thursday while the mayor and governor struggled with the political fallout from a snowstorm that trapped some people in their cars more than 24 hours. Mayor Kasim Reed assured people on Tuesday, in a message on Twitter before the snow began to fall: “Atlanta, we are ready for the snow.” On Thursday, he acknowledged that authorities made a mistake by not staggering their orders for people to go home — schools first, then private businesses, then government employees. Instead, hundreds of thousands of people poured onto...

    The attacks have begun. The Republican establishment in the U.S.A. has now actually started the shooting war in the 2014 primary elections they have been threatening against conservative candidates for Congress. “Hopefully we’ll go into eight to 10 races and beat the snot out of them,” said former Rep. Steve LaTourette of Ohio. His new political group, Defending Main Street, plans to raise $8 million to defeat tea-party candidates and elect moderate Republicans instead. “We’re going to be very aggressive and we’re going to get in their faces.” LaTourette was a close ally of moderate Republican Speaker John Boehner in...

    New evidence suggests that Noah's Ark was round, made from reeds and the length of six double-decker buses. For years, archaeologists have scoured the world for factual evidence for the Bible story of Noah's flood, but due to scant documentation, many believe the fable to be an Old Testament myth. Now, however, a new book claims that Noah's Ark was a round coracle and looked very different from its traditional image. In The Ark Before: Decoding the Story of the Flood by Irving Finkel, there are claims that the vessel had two decks with cabins for the animals. British Museum...
