    Senate Democrats are threatening to withhold their votes on a spending bill for the Pentagon unless Republicans agree to block President Trump from repurposing defense funds for his wall on the Mexican border, a tactic he’s employed in recent months. Democrats on Thursday will offer an amendment in committee to block Trump from reprogramming defense funds for his wall. “There will likely be some amendments offered, and my vote on final passage depends on the fate of those amendments,” said Sen. Dick Durban (Ill.), the top Democrat on the appropriations subcommittee on defense. While the bill could squeak through the...

    On Monday, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) asked President Trump to provide “political cover” for Republicans who will not otherwise support gun control. He said this during a press conference in which he announced that he and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) sent a letter to Trump regarding gun control. Schumer continued: President Trump has an historic opportunity to save lives by indicating his support for the House-passed bill [H.R. 8]. Speaker Pelosi and I have repeatedly and personally asked him to do this.” … [President Trump] can lead his party to support something that the NRA has prevented Republicans from...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) called on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to bring forth gun control legislation following Saturday night's shooting in Odessa and Midland, Texas. Pelosi released the following statement about the tragic shooting: “America’s heart is broken by the senseless and horrific mass shooting tonight in Texas. The prayers of the nation are with the friends and families of the victims and the entire Midland and Odessa communities, and our deepest gratitude goes out to the first responders, who are bringing help and healing during this tragic time. “Enough...
  • Hickenlooper endorsement dividing Colorado Democratic Party, internal emails show

    Scripps Media ^ | Aug 27, 2019 | Justin Wingerter and Nic Garcia,
    DENVER — A decision by national Democrats to throw their support behind John Hickenlooper in Colorado’s U.S. Senate race sparked an intense email discussion among state Democratic Party officers over the weekend, with allusions to Nazism, criticisms of Hickenlooper and calls for formal opposition. The emails offer a window into an intraparty conflict that is sure to spill out in public for weeks and months to come as Democrats debate who should be their nominee to take on Republican Sen. Cory Gardner. Hickenlooper has made it clear that he neither understands nor cares about the true problems in our country,”...
  • Pelosi sticks up for her 'squad' after their failed Israel stunt

    You'd think someone as savvy as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi would want to distance herself from the failed stunt of two of her squad members, Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib. The pair of them were up to no good in their announced trip to Israel. Far from going there for the reasons normal people go, they wanted to hang out with terrorist-sympathizers and promote an anti-Israel boycott-divest-sanction campaign. The political nature of the trip was exposed by their refusal to go on a pro-offered bipartisan trip to the country, their acceptance of a different trip hosted by terrorist-linked sponsors,...
  • Schumer Proposes Unconstitutional Infringements on Body Armor Sales

    Ammoland ^ | 13 August, 2019 | Dean Weingarten
    Senator Chuck Schumer (D) New York, has proposed radical new infringements on the Second Amendment.   Schumer proposed that body armor be prohibited to citizens, and that body armor sales be metered out by the FBI. None of his proposals were in the form of a bill or written proposals. The proposal is blatantly unconstitutional on its face. Body armor is legal to purchase in all 50 states and is in common use. It is clearly a portable arm, even though its use is primarily defensive in nature. From the Sen. Chuck Schumer on Sunday proposed new legislation to...

    Under Schumer’s measure, those who aren’t law enforcement would need to get a green light from the FBI to get body armor– and show a reason why they need it. (Photo: Chris Eger/ promised in the U.S. Senate would make the legal sale of body armor a “may issue” process signed off on by federal law enforcement. U.S. Sen.

    Chuck Schumer offered some rare praise for President Trump on Thursday, amidst his decision to slap a 10% tariff on $300 billion worth of Chinese goods on Sept. 1. “We have to be really tough on China. They’ve taken advantage of us,” he said. “America has lost trillions of dollars and millions of jobs because China has not played fair. And being tough on China is the right way to be.” Schumer is a frequent critic of the president and his trade policies.

    Fox News ^ | July 17, 2019 | Donald Trump Jr.
    These days, obstruction by the Democrats grabs the biggest headlines when they prevent solutions to the biggest issues – immigration, Supreme Court appointments, infrastructure, and so on – but their obstruction is actually the most egregious when it’s at its most petty. Confirming U.S. ambassadors should be one of the least political things the U.S. Senate does. For most of the country’s history, the process was a mere formality – a president would pick people to serve as America’s chief representatives to countries around the world, and those nominees would almost always be confirmed by voice votes, with little if...

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer told a small group of reporters Tuesday that he will support legislation proposed by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) and Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) to establish a commission to study reparations for slavery. Why it matters: As the top Democrat in the Senate, Schumer's support strengthens not only the legislation's future, but also benefits a continuing conversation on the reparations issue. It presents a stark contrast with his Republican counterpart, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who opposes reparations for slavery. "What McConnell said was just preposterous and that’s why I’m supporting this legislation," Schumer told...

    Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on Wednesday called for Customs and Border Patrol Commissioner Mark Morgan to resign. "The Inspector General's report and details of a secret border patrol workers' Facebook group paint a picture of a toxic culture at U.S. Border Patrol and Protection that can only begin to be changed by immediately firing and replacing top leadership at the agency with law enforcement professionals who have training and expertise in working with vulnerable populations," Schumer said in a statement. "Internal investigations aren't enough because the leadership at CBP, particularly Acting Commissioner Mark Morgan, are too callous about...

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Monday hit President Donald Trump over his meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Sunday, calling it "one of the worst few days in American foreign policy." Trump's visit with Kim was a moment that marked the first time a sitting US president has set foot in North Korea but it produced only an agreement between the two nations to restart talks about North Korea's nuclear ambitions. Schumer took issue with how little Trump received for a visit that he viewed as a concession. "He admires these strongmen," Schumer told CNN's Anderson...
