    On Monday’s broadcast of Fox 5’s “Good Day New York,” Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) claimed that President Joe Biden can’t reverse his reversal of former President Donald Trump’s immigration policies because “The law on asylum is really clear. If you have a colorable claim that you’re coming from a horrible country that has horrible things happening, you have a right to come here.” Gillibrand said, “President Trump — former President Trump has come out to say, I don’t want any fixes to immigration, which is just cynical and terrible for a state like New York, because we need these laws...

    There’s an old Aesop fable that warns readers not to “nourish a viper in one’s bosom.” According to the story, the viper will always turn around and bite its benefactor once it is strong enough. It’s a lesson the New York Republican Party seems to be having some trouble grasping. The party has chosen wealthy private security executive Mike Sapraicone as its preferred nominee to take on Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, despite his history of donations to liberal causes and Democrat candidates. Sapraicone easily won the support of 84 percent of delegates at the state Republican convention on Thursday. Party...

    Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand wants to help solve the Big Apple’s shelter crisis by relocating newly arrived migrants to upstate cities — which could use the population boost to qualify for pork-barrel federal funds as she seeks reelection, The Post has learned. Gillibrand (D-NY) has floated the idea to City Hall and discussed it with Mayor Eric Adams on Tuesday during a closed-door meeting in Washington, a source familiar with the matter said. The senator has also contacted Gov. Kathy Hochul’s office to seek her support, a second source told The Post. City Councilmember Gale Brewer (D-Manhattan) confirmed Gillibrand recently pitched...

    Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) Thursday on MSNBC’s “Hallie Jackson Reports” called for federal regulations to monitor social media so people can’t be “hatefully radicalized to harm our democracy.” When asked about the House Select Committee investigating the January 6, 2021 riot, Gillibrand said, “What we have seen is the radicalization and the growing extremism, anti-Semitism, white supremacists, neo-Nazis. This group, the insurrectionists on January 6, tried to take down the United States Capitol and tries to subvert our electoral counts process. So it is an outrage this happened in America. And it is the responsibility of this House committee and...
  • Gillibrand: ‘You Don’t Have to Regulate Speech, You Can Regulate Misinformation’ So People Don’t ‘Develop Such Hatred’ as Buffalo Shooter

    During an interview on MSNBC on Monday, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) argued that social media platforms should be regulated, but “You don’t have to regulate speech, you can regulate misinformation. You could say, you can’t yell ‘Fire!’ in a theater.” There are “many ways you can abrogate speech rights that are consistent with the Constitution.” And that for “an 18-year-old to develop such hatred in his heart through media platforms that do not have any regulation is a problem. And so, we need commonsense, thoughtful regulation.” Gillibrand stated, “The problem is, you have a mentally ill 18-year-old who had this...

    Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that if the Supreme Court overturned the Roe. v. Wade decision, “LGBTQ+ equality” is in danger. Gillibrand said, “The argument that if we take away the filibuster, Mitch McConnell and Republicans across the country are going to do bad things. Those bad things are literally already happening. We have a Supreme Court that is unrelated to the normal process of the American people. When those Supreme Court justices say that precedent is the foundation of our legal system and said Roe v. Wade is precedent that’s entitled to...

    On Wednesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) argued that Russia is not participating in the Iran nuclear deal negotiations “in a legitimate or honest way” and is trying to get around sanctions and ensure a market for their oil. She warned that “we have to be very careful in not negotiating against ourselves,” and that “any negotiations with regard to an Iran deal will be quite difficult to accomplish in the near term.”

    Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand strolled into an upstate eatery maskless, in violation of a statewide mandate, according to video footage posted by the irate restaurateur. John La Posta, manager of the Innovo Kitchen in Latham, said Gillibrand blew past a large sign reading “masks required to enter,” and that his own staff didn’t even have time to ask her to put one on as she quickly brushed past them toward the tables.

    She’s the incredibly shrinking senator. Kirsten Gillibrand has become so “invisible” — according to one of her ex-staffers and other observers — she would easily lose a primary challenge to lefty Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. “There are any number of state lawmakers, local officials and members of the delegation –including AOC — who could mount a very, very credible challenge and quite likely beat her,” the ex-staffer said, adding that his once vigorous former boss now seemed “bored” in the Senate and is missing in action statewide.

    Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, New York Democrat, is inviting Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, to Washington to advocate for paid family leave. In an interview, Ms. Gillibrand said the former actress and wife of royal grandson Prince Harry called her to discuss the issue. “I could hear how sincere she was about advocacy,” Ms. Gillibrand said in an interview with The 19th, which ran on Thursday. The Duchess of Sussex called Ms. Gillibrand, who authored her own family leave bill in 2013, on the phone and expressed a desire to help.

    Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) said Thursday on MSNBC that Republican gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin won because he followed in the footsteps of former President Donald Trump by “lying to people.” Gillibrand said, “As for the election, I think Virginia was a tough case. I think the Republican candidate lied a lot to the people, to the voters, and really, really, really said things that I think weren’t true. I think parents are worried about their kids. I think parents are worried about schools, and they’re still worried about COVID.” Guest host Chris Jansing said, “But he did tap into something....

    U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) visited Stony Brook University on Long Island to highlight the need for more workforce development programs in the medical field. She said the pandemic has been hard on hospitals and other healthcare facilities. In a letter to her congressional colleagues, she wants $67 million in federal funding for healthcare workforce development programs. “They desperately need reinforcements. Staff are physically and emotionally burnt out and hospitals across the entire state have been working with skeleton crews. More than 5 million New Yorkers live in primary care health professional shortage areas,” said Gillibrand. “If we don’t act,...

    Those who wish to disarm other people have a disconnect with reality. They refuse to believe some things are not possible. This creates problems. One of the reasons people push to disarm others is they refuse to arm themselves. Having made that decision, or, having had that decision made for them; they personally see no cost to their disarming of others.Disarm that guy over there. He is not me. It doesn’t hurt me.This is how ideologues who refuse to accept reality get elected again and again. Consider Kirsten Gillibrand, U.S. Senator from New York. From the measure to create...
  • Ocasio-Cortez, Gillibrand and Moulton call for more high-speed rail funding in infrastructure package (only 9.62 years left)

    Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Seth Moulton (D-Mass.) on Wednesday called on Congress to increase funding for high-speed rail in the infrastructure package. President Biden's $2.3 trillion infrastructure proposal invests $80 billion in rail projects, but industry experts say that money will mostly be spent on updating existing Amtrak lines rather than building new high-speed railways. Biden's plan includes far more funding for roads, bridges and electric cars than public transit. "Rail is climate infrastructure," Ocasio-Cortez said at a press conference Wednesday. "For every buck that we're going to put into a car and a...

    Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand wants to make another run for the White House, she said in a report published Thursday. “I definitely want to run for president again,” the New York Democrat told Politico. Gillibrand, 54, was one of a crowded field of Democrats who were looking for the party’s nod to run against President Donald Trump in 2020. “I learned so much on that campaign: about myself, about the country, about how to be successful as a politician,” she added.

    During an interview aired on Friday’s broadcast of PBS’ “Firing Line,” Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) argued that President Joe Biden can still say he’s a bipartisan leader, but this requires redefining what bipartisanship means. Gillibrand said that Biden will still have credibility as a bipartisan leader even if both the coronavirus relief and infrastructure packages pass through reconciliation without Republican votes because “I think from a voters’ perspective, they see solving the COVID crisis, getting the economy up and running, the most bipartisan agenda you could have.” Host Margaret Hoover then asked, “Is that a little bit redefining what bipartisanship...
