    Pennsylvania senators Bob Casey and Pat Toomey, along with seven other senators, are urging the U.S. State Department to designate a Pennsylvania teacher sentenced to 14 years in a Russian prison as “wrongfully detained,” according to the Philadelphia Inquirer and KDKA. The classification would reportedly allow the government to undertake active diplomatic efforts to secure the man’s release. Mark Hilliard Fogel, 61, of Oakmont, has been detained in Russia for about a year now, after being arrested at the Sheremetyevo airport in Moscow in August for possession of about 20 grams of medical marijuana. He was sentenced in June to...

    The FBI raid on former President Donald Trump’s private residence at Mar-a-Lago, Florida, had “no legal basis,” according to a Wall Street Journal op-ed by former White House and Department of Justice lawyers David B. Rivkin Jr. and Lee A. Casey.In their op-ed, Rivkin and Casey argue that the Presidential Records Act of 1978 allowed Trump to have the records allegedly in his possession, and that the general statutes cited in the search warrant — such as the Espionage Act — do not override it.They note:The warrant authorized the FBI to seize “all physical documents and records constituting evidence, contraband,...

    March 23 (UPI) -- Sen. Bob Casey announced he has contracted COVID-19, becoming the latest U.S. congressman to fall sick to the pandemic. The Democratic senator for Pennsylvania said he tested positive with a breakthrough case on Tuesday afternoon, meaning he is vaccinated against the illness but still became infected with COVID-19. "I am grateful to be asymptomatic but, per [U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] guidance, I will isolate for five days," he tweeted. "This is reminder that the pandemic is not over. Please get vaccinated and boosted." Casey's admission came hours after former secretary of state and...

    The Wall Street Journal ^ | 11/29/2021 | William Gurn
    When the Supreme Court on Wednesday hears oral arguments about a Mississippi law that bans abortions after the first 15 weeks of pregnancy, the issue in contention will be clear. Ever since the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973 the court has held that women have a constitutional right to an abortion up to the point of viability—roughly 24 weeks. Expect to read a great deal about how pro-lifers seek to impose their moral views on the nation. Nothing could be further from the truth. Certainly the pro-life community would cheer a ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization...

    Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) said Thursday on CNN’s “Newsroom” that his colleague Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) is attaching his name to “one of the biggest lies in American history” by objecting to the certification of President-elect Joe Biden’s electoral college win in the Senate on January 6. Anchor Jim Sciutto said, “Missouri Senator Josh Hawley, I just wonder what your reaction is because he specifically cited, Pennsylvania, your state not following election laws thereby contradicting not only you but your Republican colleague, Pat Toomey and by the way the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. How do you respond to a Missouri senator...

    Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death leaves a vacancy on the nation’s highest court, and Sen. Bob Casey Jr. wants the Senate to wait until after the election to vote on her replacement. Casey, D-Pa., called on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to follow the precedent he set four years ago. In 2016, McConnell and Senate Republicans refused a vote on President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, Merrick Garland. “Consistent with the precedent set by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in 2016, Justice Ginsburg’s seat should not be filled until the presidential election concludes and the candidate chosen by voters...

    Pennsylvania: US Senator Bob Casey and state reps organize events on “Islamophobia” with Hamas-linked CAIR JUN 30, 2019 11:16 AM BY ROBERT SPENCER Would Casey and the state representatives co-organized events with a Nazi group? What’s the difference? CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department. CAIR officials have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups. Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror. CAIR’s cofounder and longtime Board chairman (Omar Ahmad), as well as its chief spokesman (Ibrahim Hooper), have...

    Barack Obama turned his political attention Friday to Pennsylvania — a state Donald Trump won in 2016. The former president campaigned in Philadelphia with two leading Democrats running for re-election, Gov. Tom Wolf and U.S. Sen. Bob Casey. At a campaign rally at the Dell Music Center in Philadelphia, Obama implored Pennsylvanians to vote in November because the election was more consequential than any he could remember. “This time, it really is different. This time, the stakes really are higher,” Obama said. “The consequences of any of us sitting on the sidelines are far more dangerous.” During the speech Obama...

    Some Democrats said they don’t have to wait for President Trump to pick a Supreme Court nominee — they’re voting “No” regardless of who he names. Sen. Bob Casey became the latest one, saying Monday that the entire process the president has followed was “corrupt” because he was working from a list he wrote with the help of the conservative Heritage Foundation and Federalist Society. Mr. Casey, Pennsylvania Democrat, said both of those groups have ties to corporations and he rejected anything that had their input. “Any judge on this list is fruit of a corrupt process straight from the...

    Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) endorsed Rep. Lou Barletta (R-PA) in a video on Tuesday to challenge Sen. Bob Casey (D-PA) in the 2018 midterm election. In a video endorsing Barletta, Sen. Toomey called Barletta a “trusted conservative and a relentless fighter for hardworking Pennsylvanians.” “No one in the House of Representatives has been more committed to fighting to protect our borders or to ending dangerous sanctuary city policies than Lou Barletta,” Toomey declared. “When we recently needed an ally in the House to pass the most sweeping tax reforms in a generation, Lou was there every step of the way,”...

    The subject head of the document, carried under the words, “Special Importance,” read: “Regarding Senator Kennedy’s request to the General Secretary of the Communist Party Y. V. Andropov.” According to the memo, Senator Kennedy was “very troubled” by U.S.-Soviet relations, which Kennedy attributed not to the murderous tyrant running the USSR but to President Reagan. The problem was Reagan’s “belligerence,” said the memo, and made worse by Reagan’s stubbornness. “According to Kennedy,” reported Chebrikov, “the current threat is due to the President’s refusal to engage any modification to his politics.” That refusal, said the memo, was exacerbated by Reagan’s political...

    If you can't dazzle people with brilliance, then baffle them with bull…  merde.    Pennsylvania Democrat Senator Bob Casey does just this with his re-introduction of the "Disarm Hate Act".   His bill, should it pass, would strip gun rights from those committed of a misdemeanor hate crime.  In other words:  Refuse to bake a cake, lose your gun rights. Tiara Parker of Philadelphia joined microphone-chasing Casey to promote his latest proposal.   Shamefully, Casey used this woman simply because the Philly resident had visited the Pulse nightclub on the fateful night a radical Islamic terrorist attacked the venue.  As if getting...

    Grassroots voters are showing up at Democratic town halls to encourage their elected officials to strengthen their resistance to Donald Trump, a sign that the movement continues to grow and become more sophisticated. Voters want their elected representatives in Washington to show more backbone in their resistance to Donald Trump and the Republican Party’s agenda, and they are not reticent about making it known. The message was delivered loud and clear to Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) at a town hall meeting he held at the University of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania. “Most of the disagreements with Mr. Casey or tough questions...

Rick Saccone, a fiery Republican state lawmaker from suburban Pittsburgh, formally declared his candidacy Tuesday to challenge Democratic U.S. Sen. Bob Casey. Saccone held the event in the Pennsylvania Capitol, where he was joined by conservative supporters.

    The Republicans have 8 seats, Dems have 23 seats, and the 2 Dem-leaning Independents are in this Class. With 44 seats in the other 2 classes for the GOP and Pence as VP this means the Dem's have to pick off 3 seats to get the majority. Utah Hatch, Texas Cruz, Nebraska Fischer, Mississippi Wicker, and Wyoming Barrasso are about as close as possible to being done-deals that their seats stay GOP in 2018. Picking off Corker in Tennessee would be super hard to do. Flake in Arizona could be vulnerable depending on fallout with immigration enforcement. About the only...
