    This story isn’t exactly new: Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who wants to set up Planned Parenthood abortion outposts on the edges of national parks, said last week that she and Sen. Bob Menendez were co-sponsoring a bill that would “crack down on so-called ‘crisis pregnancy centers’ that mislead and deceive patients seeking abortion care.” Warren is still on the warpath and told an ABC affiliate in Massachusetts that the state needs to put a stop to crisis pregnancy centers “right now.” Girls walk in looking for an abortion and are met by people who try to talk them out of it...

    On Thursday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Jose Diaz-Balart Reports,” Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) criticized the Biden administration for lifting some restrictions on Cuba by saying that the day that the policy changes were announced, the Cuban regime put “sweeping, draconian consequences” for free speech into law and that the Biden administration’s move is “a unilateral concession that ultimately was responded to by having a penal code that includes the death penalty for free speech activities.”

    Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ) said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that Title 42, which limits immigration during the COVID pandemic, was not the solution but part of the problem. Anchor Chuck Todd said, “Quick questions about immigration. Many of your Democratic colleagues are not happy with the decision to rescind Title 42 with what they believe is not an adequate enough plan. You would like to see title 42 ended, I know that, but at the same time, you questioned whether or not we have the resources and commitment to do this. What is the best way to handle...

    Following up on his earlier demand that President Biden send assassins to kill Russian President Vladimir Putin, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) went on "Fox and Friends" and called for "a broader net to be cast. It is shameful that our country is not unified behind the President in this time of war. Public figures who could and should be rallying the people behind his efforts to defeat Putin are going public with statements that sow doubt and distrust of his strategy." Admitting that he doesn't yet have a comprehensive list, Graham named "Tucker Carlson, Tulsi Gabbard, and Donald Trump as...

    On Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Jose Diaz-Balart Reports,” Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) reacted to the Biden administration reportedly looking to increase oil imports from Venezuela by stating that there is no need to go to the Maduro regime in Venezuela that President Biden declared a national security threat five days ago for more oil when there are other nations the U.S. can get oil from and domestic production that is already licensed.

    On Thursday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “MTP Daily,” Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) said he thinks the U.S. should impose an embargo on Russian oil, but whether U.S. oil production should be increased to make up for the loss of Russian oil is up to President Joe Biden. Menendez said, “I support a full embargo, even though it would equate to about — if it’s just the U.S. alone — about 4% of Russian sales globally. But I think it is an important step to make, and I think it is gaining traction. And I think that...

    Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that if Russian President Vladimir Putin were allowed to invade Ukraine, he would not stop there. Menendez told CNN anchor Dana Bash, “Listen, this is beyond Ukraine, although certainly we dramatically support Ukraine. We cannot have a Munich moment again. Putin will not stop with Ukraine if he believes that the West will not respond. We saw what he did in 2008 in Georgia. We saw what he did in 2014 and pursued Crimea. He will not stop. So at the end of the day, this is about...

He added an insurgency from Ukraine would “send a lot of Russia’s sons back to Russia in a body bag.”

As a result, he fractured and dislocated his right shoulder, the one he uses to write, NJ.com reported. Menendez said he is “expected to be on the injury list for at least six weeks and might need surgery.” In...

Biden became acquainted with Menendez’s propensity for making matters difficult for presidents of either party, especially those who do not value Congress’s role in crafting U.S. foreign policy, when he served as vice president.

    President Biden is getting little cover from Congress as he faces broad backlash over his handling of the U.S. withdrawal in Afghanistan. Some Democrats, including Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), have rallied to Biden’s side and circulated White House talking points to their members. Pelosi also urged Democrats during a conference call to stand behind Biden, according to a source familiar with the conversation. But the quick fall of Afghanistan to the Taliban, images of chaos coming out of Kabul and questions about how, and how quickly, Americans and tens of thousands of Afghan...

    Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.), chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said Thursday he doubts there is a Plan B for immigration reform if attempts to include provisions through the budget process fail. "If we don't have reconciliation I'm not sure that there's a pathway forward," Menendez told immigration advocates on a call organized by the American Business Immigration Coalition. He added that any legislative avenue outside of reconciliation would need the support of at least 10 Republican senators, an unlikely prospect for an issue as politicized as immigration.

    On Monday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Situation Room,” Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chair Robert Menendez (D-NJ) urged President Joe Biden against returning to President Obama’s Cuba policies because they resulted in “absolutely no change inside of Cuba” but allowed the Cuban regime to “profit dramatically” from the revenues that flowed into the country. Menendez said, “I think the president has had a time to review the actual policies under President Obama, and all of the openings that President Obama made, which were one-sided, unilateral, in terms of concessions, showed themselves to create absolutely no change inside of Cuba. The regime still...

    Sen. Bob Menendez (N.J.), the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, released a report on Wednesday of what he said was the damage to the United States from President Trump’s “America First” foreign policy. The report comes less than two weeks before the presidential election and serves as a preview of how the ranking member of the foreign policy panel, who could potentially serve as chairman if Democrats take a majority in the Senate, is preparing to advocate in the next administration. The 80-page report is a blistering attack on Trump’s first term, but it also previews how...

    Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ), top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, is now demanding an investigation into President Trump’s financial ties with foreign governments — a longtime goal of Democrats — after John Bolton’s book was leaked to news outlets. Bolton’s book claimed that Trump tried to persuade Chinese President Xi Jinping to buy more agricultural goods from the United States to help him win re-election. Menendez said that “raised new questions about how much the President may be profiting from his company’s relationship with the state-run Industrial and Commercial Bank of China.”
