    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...
  • John Fetterman's top communications staffers have all resigned to pursue more liberal positions as the Democrat combats anger from progressives over his pro-Israel stance

    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...

    Your tax dollars are about to fund renovations for a gay sex and bondage club.Our friends over at Libs of Tik Tok uncovered a $1 million expenditure designated for an LGBT club called “The Aviary.”The club is not so much for feathered fowl as it is for sex and bondage and dungeons and kink parties. Just Google it if you have questions.The Senate Appropriations Committee says the money will be used to renovate the LGBT center in Pennsylvania – at the request of Senators Bob Casey and John Fetterman.
  • $1 MILLION for gay BDSM parties, money for shark repellent studies and homes for starving artists: The most shocking taxpayer-funded earmarks agreed to in Congress' $460B must-pass spending bill to avoid government shutdown in 3 days

    Ultra-conservative Republicans are railing against the 605 pages of earmarks that will be included in a $460 billion spending package to fund six agencies of government that will come up for a vote on Wednesday. The earmarks have already caused scandal within the Senate, where Pennsylvania Democrat John Fetterman's office rescinded support for a $1 million earmark for an LGBTQ center in Pennsylvania that hosts BDSM parties. The funding caused a backlash on social media, prompting Fetterman, who was long one of the staunchest pro-LGBTQ lawmakers in the Keystone State, to have the earmark removed.

    The Animation Guild (IATSE Local 839) on Wednesday became the first Hollywood union to formally call for a Gaza ceasefire as it signed a labor movement petition addressing the conflict. The guild announced the move in a statement posted to the social media site X, formerly known as Twitter, the Wrap was the first to report. The union’s post included a link to a labor movement petition calling for the return of hostages taken by Hamas, for President Joe Biden to immediately call for a ceasefire, and for “the basic rights of people” in Gaza to be restored.
  • Biden Regime Plans to Give Hamas a Grand Reward for Murdering 1,200 Israelis-It has been clear for quite some time what side Biden is on

    It has been clear for quite some time that the Biden regime, despite its show of support for Israel, is really on the side of Hamas. Now the regime is in serious talks to respond to Hamas’ brutal and inhuman murder of 1,200 Israelis on Oct. 7, 2023 by giving it the biggest reward of all: a Palestinian state.If you are skeptical that Old Joe and his henchmen are really on Hamas’ side, consider the fact that, in November, they enabled the release of ten billion dollars in frozen funds to the Islamic Republic of Iran, Hamas’ primary financier. That...

    Sen. John Fetterman (D-Pa.) panned Democrats who are upping their criticisms of President Biden ahead of the November election, saying they might as well don a “MAGA hat.” Fetterman noted during an interview an uptick in Democrats who have become more critical of Biden lately, and said it’s only helping former President Trump. “I don’t understand why,” Fetterman said, speaking on “Morning Joe” on MSNBC. “I don’t know what’s in it for you to do that whether you’re just chasing clout or you want to make it in the news or anything like that. But if you’re not willing to...

    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." "I am truly appalled that the Kennedy School would platform an individual who celebrates and justifies Hamas’ October 7th killing of...

    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...

    As we noted this morning, Sen. John Fetterman’s (D-PA) penchant for bucking the Democratic Party line might no longer be a one-off thing. It could be a trend. We now have a handful of issues where he is decidedly against the brass, and it’s refreshing. While I wish the GOP had supermajorities in both chambers, that’s not the case, and we need some Democrats to do stuff. Since his 2022 election, Fetterman has voiced his pro-Israel ties, declared himself no longer a progressive, likening them to a bunch of crazies, and said that we have a severe crisis at the...

    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...
  • Stop Talking About Proportion’: John Fetterman Defends Israel Against Accusations of Genocide In Fiery Speech

    “Who are we? Who are they really fighting? It’s a group of cowards. They hide in tunnels. They hide behind civilians. They attack, kill, and usually children murder. And they do that. Stop talking about proportion on that. They shot their best shot on October 7th, and they would have taken more lives if they could’ve done that,” Fetterman said in a fiery speech before the group. “But they couldn’t do it. And now let’s also talk about that. Now we’re talking about genocide. And now South Africa is now bringing that kind of a trial. Maybe South Africa, maybe...

    In a rare move, Democrat Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) is receiving praise from Republicans after criticizing his own party’s stance on several issues. Fetterman has slammed the Democratic Party’s progressive “Squad” who refuse to condemn the Hamas terrorist attacks on Israel. He questioned why the United States hasn’t yet destroyed Hamas, adding that every terrorist killed is "one more step" toward peace. Advertisement The Democrat has stood by his pro-Israel stance, angering members of his party who believe more should be done to help Gaza despite Hamas raping and heinously killing innocent Israelis. “I have a 12-year-old daughter,” Fetterman said....

    Sen. John Fetterman (D-Pa.) blasted Democratic strategist James Carville, saying he should “shut the -‑‑‑ up” on criticisms regarding President Biden and his odds in the 2024 presidential race. In a new interview with Politico, Fetterman responded to a question about Biden’s reelection campaign by slamming Carville unprompted, saying he would use the interview as “another opportunity to tell James Carville to shut the -‑‑‑ up.” “Like I said, my man hasn’t been relevant since grunge was a thing. And I don’t know why he believes it’s helpful to say these kinds of things about an incredibly difficult circumstance with...

    CNN ^ | 12/22/23 | Morgan Rimmer
    After calling himself a progressive Democrat for several years, Democratic Sen. John Fetterman of Pennsylvania is renouncing that label, as he has come under attack from the left wing of his party in recent months. “I would just call myself a Democrat,” he told CNN’s Jake Tapper earlier this month. “And I believe that I’m on the right side of issues, whether that’s being very pro-choice, maybe that I believe that is being pro-union, and if I believe that’s pro-Israel as well, too.” Fetterman’s comments come as he has faced attacks from the left wing of his party over his...

    Daily Caller ^ | December 21, 2023 10:18 AM ET | HENRY RODGERS, CHIEF NATIONAL CORRESPONDENT
    Pennsylvania Democratic Sen. John Fetterman said Wednesday he believes his liberal colleagues are hoping he gets another blood clot and dies. “What I have found out over the last couple years is that the right, and now the left, are hoping that I die. There are ones that are rooting for another blood clot. They have both now been wishing that I die,” Fetterman said in the interview with the New York Times. The comments come after Fetterman made news by breaking with Democrats over support for Israel, calling for the resignation of New Jersey Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez after...

    I’m not sure exactly when it happened. Senator John Fetterman (D-PA) is making a lot of people who were formerly critical of him suddenly find themselves in agreement with him. That includes me. No one is more astounded than me. When John Fetterman was elected, I thought he was a far-left progressive married to an illegal immigrant. He was. Then he had a massive stroke. As he recovered, he continued to run for the Senate. He campaigned from his basement and his wife ran interference for him. She misled everyone into believing that he was fine and would be ready...

    In early December, the Babylon Bee put out one of its better headlines of the year. It targeted Sen. John Fetterman, poking fun at his recent right-ward shift on a variety of issues. Apparently, the Bee is going to need to improve its satire because Fetterman is doing his best to make that headline a reality. As RedState reported, he's already taken right-leaning positions on Israel and the bribery scandal engulfing Sen. Bob Menendez. I don't just mean he's put out a statement either. He's repeatedly expressed his viewpoints in a variety of media venues, including going on The View...

    WASHINGTON — Sen. John Fetterman, D-Pa., is breaking with progressives on hot-button issues with his fiery support for Israel and calls for Democrats to engage on tougher immigration laws, disappointing some on the left as he shows an independent streak. He’s also continually scolding Democrats for not pushing Sen. Bob Menendez out of office after he was indicted on federal charges of taking bribes and acting as a foreign agent for Egypt, which the New Jersey Democrat denies. In the 2022 campaign, Fetterman's ties to Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., prompted GOP opponent Mehmet Oz to tell voters he’d be a...
