    The American Civil Liberties Union announced Saturday evening that a federal court in New York had issued an emergency stay on President Trump’s executive order banning immigration from seven predominantly Muslim countries. The court’s decision, which will affect people who have been detained in airports, came after the ACLU and other activist groups filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of two Iraqis who were held at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York as a result of the order. “I hope Trump enjoys losing. He’s going to lose so much we’re going to get sick and tired of...

    A convicted felon and key prosecution witness in the criminal case against former Utah Attorney General John Swallow threw out some big names in state and national politics during a court hearing Tuesday. And Swallow’s one-time co-defendant who prosecutors still consider a “co-conspirator,” former Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff, made an unexpected appearance in the courtroom. Marc Jenson testified at an evidentiary hearing that Utah House Speaker Greg Hughes, R-Draper, and then U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, attended a “secret” meeting involving the Utah Transit Authority in his Southern California office in 2009. Hughes was a legislator but...

    Rules: You have to laugh at the Democrats' current plight. They have almost no leverage to block anyone Donald Trump decides to select for judgeships or cabinet posts. They can't stop Republicans from repealing most of ObamaCare. And they only have themselves to blame. On CNN this week, Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer was lamenting the fact that Democrats wouldn't be able to use the filibuster to stop Trump's nominees. There should, he said, be "60 votes because on such important positions there should be some degree of bipartisanship." And who, exactly, is to blame for this? Schumer's predecessor in...

    Outgoing Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) said he is confident that he has laid the groundwork for Democrats to nuke the filibuster for Supreme Court nominees if they win back the Senate in November. Envisioning Hillary Clinton in the White House and Democrats controlling the Senate, Reid warned that if a Senate Republican minority block her Supreme Court nominee, he is confident the party won’t hesitate to change the filibuster rules again. Such a move would be an extension of what Reid did in 2013 when he was still majority leader, eliminating filibusters (with a simple majority vote) on...

The move is dubbed the “nuclear option” because by altering the filibuster rules it stands to blow up bipartisan Senate relations. “I argued against it at the time,” Schumer said. “I said both for Supreme Court and...

    Takes one to know one. We’ve spent quite a bit of time talking about the ugly reality facing today’s Democrats. As a political force, they’ve essentially been decimated by the Obama years. Following Hillary Clinton’s implosion, they hold a historically small number of seats at the federal, state, and local levels. They’re facing an absolutely brutal 2018 midterm map, their “bench” is embarrassingly shallow, and (so far) fresh faces are nowhere to be found.

    Nevada’s departing senator would have fought Trump with a ruthlessness perhaps no other Democratic leader has. Harry Reid was searching for someone to take a stand. It was a Tuesday morning in early December, three days before his three-decade congressional career would effectively come to an end, and Reid had summoned about 20 of his staffers to his Capitol office just off the Senate floor. Although it’s reserved for the leader of the Senate’s minority party, it’s still a ­magisterial space, with soaring ceilings and mosaic floors. As a cold rain pelted the windows, the Nevada senator sat in a...

Harry Reid. It’s unlikely Mr. Reid had a President Trump in mind when he pulled the so-called “nuclear option” trigger three years ago, changing Senate rules to eviscerate the use of a filibuster to block presidential nominees. Set up to help President Obama’s picks overcome GOP opposition, those same rules now will clear the path for Sen. Jeff Sessions to become the new attorney general, Rep....

Personal data—names and addresses—have been published in hopes that "people will take the initiative to contact these electors and persuade them to change their vote for the good of the country."

The new emails were found several weeks ago, law enforcement officials told CNN Sunday, but the FBI did not disclose them until Friday. The timing raises questions...

    Months after they declared James B.

The revelation, which Mr. Comey made in a letter Friday, may already be hurting Mrs. Clinton’s presidential campaign.

    Retaking the Senate no longer seems like the cinch that Democrats imagined...and now they’re responding with budget obstructionism that could end with a government shutdown. If they can’t win on the merits, they can attempt to provoke a fake crisis. The last budget deal runs out...and the Senate will vote Tuesday on a “clean” continuing resolution... The bill also includes $1.1 billion to fight the Zika virus... funding for the recent heroin and addiction bill; and $500 million in disaster aid for Louisiana... This is exactly what Democrats...said they wanted. “If they want to get out of here,” Democratic leader...

    Short video at link. There is no doubt that Democrats are inching closer and closer to the panic button. Recent polls have Republican nominee Donald Trump leading in the majority of battle ground states and in overall national polls. Just after Trump clarified his views on Barack Obama's birthplace, Senate minority leader Harry Reid held an interview on CNN scolding Trump and the recent polls while saying that Hillary is "doing a good job." "I don't believe your silliness with your $500 polls, they're not true," he said.

    Donald Trump “is a human leech who will bleed the country and sit at his golf resort laughing at the money he has made,” Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday. In remarks from the Senate floor, Reid (D-Nev.) called Trump “a spoiled brat” and “a notorious con artist.” And he argued that the GOP nominee’s history of dubious business practices would carry over into a presidential administration. Donald Trump “is a human leech who will bleed the country and sit at his golf resort laughing at the money he has made,” Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday. In...
  • What the hell is this American plane owned by the Bank of Utah doing in IRAN?

    On Tuesday morning, a plane owned in trust by the Bank of Utah showed up in a very visible area of the Mehrabad Airport in Tehran, the capital of the Islamic Republic of Iran. What was it doing there exactly? Nobody knows, reports The New York Times. Under President Barack Obama, the United States has eased some of the long-standing punitive economic sanctions against Iran. Still, very little American — or European — economic activity is allowed inside the religious theocracy. The Bank of Utah is certainly no Wells Fargo. The Ogden-based community bank has all of 13 branches including...

    With his political career over with this term in the Senate, Minority Leader Harry Reid is plumbing new depths of political depravity. Having entered political life poor, thanks to strategic land purchases and other insider deals, he is now a wealthy man. But also a man with a reputation for political lies of the most heinous sort, especially his repeated claims that Mitt Romney paid no taxes, a complete lie. But now he has extended his degeneracy to the gold star mother Patti Smith, mother of Benghazi hero Sean Smith.

    The Federal Election Commission, which considered legal action against former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee for joking about fundraising, won't punish Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid for admitting to violating an election law. The reason: It's not worth the effort.

    Greg Nash Speaking for the last time at a Democratic convention as a party leader or elected official, Senate Minority LeaderHarry Reid (Nev.) used the occasion Wednesday to unload on Donald Trump, calling him a “hateful con man.” Reid blamed what he called the divisive tactics of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and other congressional Republicans for enabling Trump’s rise. “His Republican Party decided that the answer to hard-working Americans' dreams is to slander our African-American president, stoke fear of Muslims, sow hatred of Latinos, insult Asians, and, of course, wage war against women,” Reid said. “In other...

    PHILADELPHIA - Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) is advising intelligence officials that if they end up giving GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump classified briefings during the campaign, they should just fake it and make sure not to divulge anything important. “How would the CIA and the other intelligence agencies brief this guy? How could they do that? I would suggest to the intelligence agencies, if you’re forced to brief this guy, don’t tell him anything, just fake it, because this man is dangerous,” Reid said in an interview with The Huffington Post Wednesday afternoon. “Fake it, pretend you’re doing...

    Free Beacon writer Stephen Gutowski tweeted on Friday that presidential candidate Donald Trump was "openly praising" Senate Minority leader Harry Reid "for attacking Romney over his tax returns when Romney was running against Obama." Trump's praise for Reid comes in the wake of criticism of Trump by Senator Ted Cruz during Thursday's GOP debate in Houston for "funding Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi." Via the Washington Post, in response to Trump's assertion that Cruz is not well-liked in D.C., Cruz responded: ...
