    In what serves as a perfect encapsulation of politics in America today, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer presented unfounded, politically motivated opinion as fact in a letter he sent to Fox News that ultimately targets Tucker Carlson, the left’s greatest nemesis these days.Capitalizing on the unhinged rantings of a disturbed 18-year-old gunman who opened fire at a Buffalo, N.Y., supermarket, killing 10 people, Schumer sent a letter to Fox Corporation chairman Rupert Murdoch, his son and Fox CEO Lachlan Murdoch, Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott, and Fox News Media President Jay Wallace, urging them to stop amplifying the Great...

    Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said Monday that he will be heading to Buffalo with President Biden on Tuesday in the wake of a racist mass shooting in a predominantly Black neighborhood that left 10 people dead. “Today, we hold in our hearts every single New Yorker whose life was tragically cut short during Saturday’s violence. We weep knowing nothing, nothing will ever be able to bring them back. We mourn with their families and with their friends, with the entire community still shell shocked by this shooting,” he said on the floor.

    Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s extensive ties to Big Tech firms have raised the specter that the powerful Democrat has put the brakes on much-sought antitrust legislation being pushed by his own party. More than 80 former paid staffers of the longtime New York lawmaker have leveraged their time with Schumer to secure prestigious jobs, working directly with companies including Amazon, Facebook, Google and Apple, according to data compiled for The Post. The information was collected from publicly available filings of congressional staffers on LegiStorm — an online repository of data about congressional staffers and their compensation. The analysis reviewed...

    Protesters marched on the homes of conservative Supreme Court Justices over the weekend, an ugly attempt to scare them into saving Roe v. Wade. This week the drama moves to the Senate, where Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer plans a vote on a sweeping bill to override state laws and set a national abortion policy. House Democrats passed the Women’s Health Protection Act (WHPA) last year, but it stalled in the Senate. It’s expected to fail again this week. But that isn’t stopping Mr. Schumer, who is refusing to take up a bill by GOP Sens. Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski,...

    On Monday, a very emotional MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough delivered a rant directed at Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and other Democratic leaders to pass Roe v. Wade and codify it into law. After outlining how the leaked draft U.S. Supreme Court ruling overturning the 1973 Roe v. Wade shared the same “constitutional foundation” as interracial marriage and contraceptive rights, Scarborough suggested Schumer get a “bipartisan vote” instead of trying to “get the whole loaf.”

    An unprecedented leak of a coming Supreme Court ruling overturning the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision making abortion the law of the land has sparked a spate of panic and crazy talk from leading Democrat luminaries. The opinion written by Justice Alito says the 1973 Court overstepped its bounds and violated the Tenth Amendment’s reservation of powers not explicitly granted to the federal government to the states. Going forward, whether abortions shall be permitted, banned, or regulated will be determined by each state’s own laws. Former President Obama called the reversal “a blow to all who believe in a free...

    Following the leak of a draft opinion document stating that the Supreme Court will vote to overturn Roe v Wade, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer announced on Thursday that the chamber will hold a vote next week to potentially codify abortion rights into law. "Next week, the US Senate is going to vote on legislation to codify a woman's right to seek an abortion into federal law," said Schumer. "I intend to file cloture on this vital legislation Monday, which would set up a vote for Wednesday." "Republicans will have two choices. They can own the destruction of women's rights,...

    Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) offered a blistering rebuke on Monday night of a draft ruling to overturn the landmark 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade. The draft ruling, published by Politico, was authored by Justice Samuel Alito and concludes by declaring that Roe and the court’s 1992 decision in Planned Parenthood v. Casey have no grounding in the Constitution. The court is expected to issue an actual ruling in the case in the next two months.

    Meanwhile, excessive government entitlement spending facilitated by Federal Reserve money-printing will continue unabated. The “only way” to tackle rampant inflation in America is to raise taxes on the middle class and eliminate tax cuts enacted by former President Donald Trump, according to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D). “If you wanna get rid of inflation, the only way to do it is to undo a lot of the Trump Tax Cuts and raise rates,” Schumer said during a press conference at the Capitol building on Tuesday. “No Republican is ever going to do that, so the only way to get...

    Senate Democrats say they were able to eliminate a “bailout for Big Oil” to help secure a bipartisan agreement on a $2 trillion coronavirus economic relief package Wednesday. Democratic leader Chuck Schumer released a summary of the agreement that says it no longer contains $3 billion to fulfill President Trump’s order to buy low-priced oil to restock the nation’s emergency Strategic Petroleum Reserve.

    Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said on Tuesday that he is working with Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) and other Republicans to try to find a way to pay for new coronavirus relief funding after it was dropped from a massive government spending bill earlier this month. "We are trying to get COVID relief. I'm working with Senator Romney and other Republicans in good faith to find some pay fors that are acceptable to Democrats and Republicans in the House and the Senate. We hope to get it done," Schumer told reporters.

    Amy Schumer is co-hosting the 94th Academy Awards with Regina Hall and Wanda Sykes, and she’s revealed at least one idea she planned for the upcoming ceremony: having Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy appear during the ceremony via satellite or a pre-taped video segment. The 2022 Oscars will take place while Russia’s invasion of Ukraine continues, and many celebrities have raises millions of dollars for Ukrainian aid. “I think there is definitely pressure in one way to be like, ‘This is a vacation, let people forget we just want to have this night,’ but it is like, ‘Well we have so...

There is a large chunk of it [that] is humanitarian relief,” Schumer told reporters about the massive omnibus package establishment Republicans and Democrats are attempting to pass in short order.

    Rep. Eric Swalwell (D., Calif.), who has accused Republicans of enabling Russia, took maximum campaign donations from a top lobbyist for Nord Stream 2 AG, the company behind an oil transportation project dubbed "Putin’s pipeline." Swalwell, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, received $2,900 last year from Vincent Roberti Sr., the chairman of lobbying powerhouse Roberti Global. Roberti gave $5,400 to Swalwell’s campaign in 2018. Roberti Global received $2.4 million in 2021 from Nord Stream 2 AG, a Switzerland-based subsidiary of Russian oil giant Gazprom. Critics of the 761-mile pipeline have long said it would allow Vladimir Putin to...
