    Democrat Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) broke ways with President Joe Biden on Sunday after he said he wouldn’t support Israel if it retaliated against Iran. During an interview with CNN, Fetterman told host Jake Tapper that he disagreed with Biden’s stance, saying he would never "capitulate to the fringe" or “pander” to the Democratic Party. “Do you think that's the right call or should direct U.S. military action, as some of your colleagues in the Senate are suggesting, should that be on the table?" Tapper asked. The president made it clear that he would not back Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin...

    "Stop Making Sense" is an album and a documentary by the band Talking Heads. It's also a phrase that comes to mind every time Pennsylvania Sen. John Fetterman (D) opens his mouth these days.It's not that I want him to stop making sense, it's just that I still can't wrap my head around the fact that this is the same guy who on the campaign trail was barely coherent due to complications from a massive stroke and who came off as someone who would end up on the AOC wing of the party. As if to emphasize that impression, he...

    Pennsylvania Sen. John Fetterman ripped the idea of “squatter’s rights” during an exclusive interview with The Post this week. “Squatters have no rights,” Fetterman said, adding that the issue was one he often dealt with when he was mayor of working-class Braddock, Pa. “How can you even pretend that this is anything other than you’re just breaking the law?” “I am not woke,” he warned.

    U.S. — Despite holding a narrow lead in the Senate amid a hotly contested election year, Democrats have issued a nationwide Fetterman recall to address documented instances of malfunctions from the Pennsylvania senator. Democratic leaders reportedly held high-level meetings to discuss potential solutions for the issue of John Fetterman failing to advocate for the party's prescribed positions and regularly acting counter to his manufacturer's programming, leading to a full recall being issued. "We thought he'd be a reliable Democrat, but he's just not functioning correctly," said one Democrat official. "Once a product starts to fail in its intended purpose, it...
  • Sen. John Fetterman’s Top Communication Staffers Resign After Backlash Over Politician’s Pro-Israel Stance

    Three top communication staffers in Pennsylvania Sen. John Fetterman’s office left for other left-leaning offices, all within the span of a month. The departures come as the Pennsylvania Democrat has made headlines for his stances on Israel and immigration, separating him from his fellow Democrat colleagues. Joe Calvello formerly worked as Fetterman’s Director of Communications both in his Senate office and on his 2022 campaign. A statement released earlier this month by the City of Chicago announced that Calvello would be joining as Chief Strategy Officer in Chicago Democrat Mayor Brandon Johnson’s office. “It’s an absolute honor and a privilege...

    Top staffers for Democrat John Fetterman are leaving his office for more progressive jobs as the Pennsylvania senator moves more to the center on key issues. The everyman Democrat, who loves Carhartt hoodies and dawning a disheveled goatee, has staunchly supported Israel's war on Hamas and denounced calls for a ceasefire. He's also expressed support for increased U.S. border security, another position that puts him at odds with his party. The freshman Democrat was elected after securing support from some of the most liberal members of Congress in 2022. The towering 6 foot 8 inch senator, previously supported Democrat Socialist...
  • John Fetterman breaks with Kamala Harris: Democratic Senator slams VP for saying Israel will face 'consequences' for a Rafah ground offensive and says Netanyahu should be allowed to finish Hamas

    Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) criticized Vice President Kamala Harris on Sunday after she indicated Israel should face 'consequences' if they launched a major ground offensive in Rafah. Both Biden and Harris have warned Israeli Prime Benjamin Bibi Netanyahu not to invade Rafah as part of Israel's military goal of rooting out Hamas terrorists in the region and freeing the hostages held in captivity after the October 7 attacks. When Harris was asked by ABC News Senior Congressional Correspondent Rachel Scott on Sunday whether she would rule out considering 'consequences' for Israel if they invaded Rafah, Harris replied, 'I am ruling...

    During an interview with the Fox News Channel aired on Friday’s broadcast of “Special Report,” Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) reacted to claims that 30,000 Palestinians have been killed in the Israel-Hamas war — a claim that has been repeated by President Joe Biden — by stating that number includes a huge number of Hamas terrorists and also said that the war could end immediately if Hamas would surrender and release the hostages. Fetterman said, [relevant remarks begin around 1:55] “I was very disappointed that our caucus wasn’t — we didn’t have the opportunity to do that. I really wanted to...

    Ever since he underwent treatment for clinical depression last year Senator John Fetterman (D-PA) has been a changed man, much to the dismay of many of those who were once his defenders. The Pennsylvania Democrat has rejected the extremist views of the progressives who now dominate his party, sounding more like one of the old-school blue-collar liberals who have largely been vanquished, especially when it comes to support for Israel and the condemnation of the Hamas terror organization. Fetterman did it again, letting loose in epic fashion on the X platform at a time when pressure from anti-Semitic Democrats has...

"This is a family in crisis and the recreational cruelty I see on social media needs to be out of bounds," the Pennsylvania Democrat posted on X Wednesday in response to news that Boebert’s son had been arrested. "I know the impact this has on children. I'm calling for restraint because cruelty has substantial collateral damage. We can't ever forget that they didn't sign up for this." Fetterman, who...

    On Friday’s broadcast of “CNN NewsNight,” Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) responded to President Joe Biden’s criticism of Israel’s military response to October 7 by stating that Hamas hides behind civilians. He further stated that Hamas is “responsible for all” the deaths of Palestinian civilians while Israel wants to “minimize” civilian deaths and the conflict would end if Hamas surrendered and he doesn’t know why more people aren’t talking about them surrendering.

    Sen. John Fetterman, D-Pa., is slamming Harvard for hosting a Palestinian professor who has blamed Israel for the Oct. 7 Hamas attacks. The Democratic lawmaker said he was "truly appalled" that Harvard’s Kennedy School would platform Dr. Dalal Saeb Iriqat, a columnist and associate professor at Arab American University Palestine. Dr. Iriqat is scheduled to speak at the Harvard Kennedy School’s Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs on March 7 for a seminar series called "Middle East Dialogues."

    Former President Trump vowed to block the sale of U.S. Steel to the Japanese Nippon Steel Corporation if he secures a second term in the White House. “I would block it, I think it’s a horrible thing. When Japan buys U.S. Steel, I would block it instantaneously. Absolutely,” he told reporters Wednesday after meeting with the Teamsters union in Washington. Trump did not say how he planned to block the deal between U.S. Steel and Nippon Steel. “We saved the steel industry. Now, U.S. Steel is being bought by Japan. So terrible. But yeah, we want to bring jobs back...

    Aww...say it isn’t so?! The South of the Border socialist firebrand and fashion maven married to the surprise senator from Pennsylvania – ebullient and glamorous Gisele Fetterman – has seemingly disappeared from the face of the earth after being the Face of Fetterman for…well…what seemed like forever. She always did seem to consider her incoherent, lumbering, and unlovable lug of a husband the sideshow attraction to the Gisele parade.

    Residents of Lilliput, one of the islands of “Gulliver’s Travels,” dubbed Gulliver “man-mountain.” In the plight for his freedom, “said man-mountain” promised to, “be aiding and assisting to our workmen, in helping to raise certain great stones.” Perhaps a figurative stone is the weight of the political moderates. John Fetterman (D-Pa.) the senator, as opposed to John Fetterman the candidate, seems to be doing this in a Sen. Joe Manchin-esque (D-W.Va.) manner. We might want to start calling the 6-foot-8 Fetterman man-Manchin. Capturing the politically murky middle is a difficult task, particularly in a journalistic environment where extremes get clicks....

    Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) is quickly becoming the biggest surprise from the 2022 cycle. It was a source of embarrassment for the Republican Party regarding their inability to defeat a man who was not healthy following a near-fatal stroke that year. Those feelings are now forgotten. Why? Because Mr. Fetterman has become the bane of liberal America’s existence. For progressives, they’re through with him. On immigration, the man is willing to say that the border is out of control, it’s not xenophobic to admit we have a crisis on our hands, and that these illegal aliens, who are pouring over...

    I really enjoyed making fun of John Fetterman. I mean, I really did enjoy it. It was easy, most of the jokes wrote themselves, but they were still fun to say. But now, he’s not a joke. What he’s become as a United States Senator is nothing short of shocking, and I owe him a (qualified) apology. Senator Fetterman has demonstrated something most people in the political world can’t bring themselves to, or are incapable of – change their position based on new evidence coming to light. There aren’t many Members of Congress who surprise anyone; they wear the uniform...

    Sen. John Fetterman, D-Penn., lobbied for securing the U.S. southern border, telling CNN on Friday that 300,000 illegal immigrants attempting to enter the country are blocking legal migrants from their "American dream." Fetterman spoke to CNN’s "The Lead" anchor Jake Tapper about the current migrant crisis, claiming the wave is making our immigration system "difficult." Though he noted he’s a huge proponent of legal migration, he demanded a "secure border" and questioned why his progressive critics have a problem with that.
