  • Sen. Sinema attacks Biden for Title 42 chaos: White House 'had two years to prepare'

    Arizona Independent Sen. Kyrsten Sinema attacked the White House on Sunday for doing nothing regarding the border crisis despite having two years to plan for the Title 42 mandate to expire. The pandemic-era policy, which originally allowed the U.S. to expel certain migrants as a health mandate, is set to expire on Thursday. Even with the policy in place, the Biden administration has faced record levels of illegal border crossing since taking office in Jan. 2021. "Face the Nation" host Margaret Brennan spoke with Sinema on the border crisis as well as her proposed bill to continue a similar policy...

    Senators introduce bill to create digital identity for all Americans.. U.S. Senators Kyrsten Sinema, an independent of Arizona, and Cynthia Lummis, Republican of Wyoming, have introduced Senate Bill 884, also known as “the Improving Digital Identity Act of 2023.” The bill was introduced March 21 and ordered to proceed out of committee on March 29 without amendments and with a favorable recommendation. ... The bill’s text states: “The lack of an easy, affordable, reliable, and secure way for organizations, businesses, and government agencies to identify whether an individual is who they claim to be online creates an attack vector that...
  • Kyrsten Sinema spent more than $100K in campaign cash on jets, limos, luxury hotels and wine

    Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (I-Ariz.) has filled her campaign coffers with Wall Street cash — but some donors are miffed she’s spent more than $100,000 of it on luxury hotels, private jets, limos and fine wines, On The Money has learned. Since 2021, Sinema has spent nearly $20,000 worth of campaign donations on wine-related expenses alone — dropping thousands at some of the most exclusive vineyards on the West Coast including Promontory Winery in Napa Valley, Auteur Winery in Sonoma and Argyle Winery in the Willamette Valley, according to election filings. During that same timeframe, Sinema spent nearly $10,000 in campaign...
  • 'Disturbing and sad': Sen. Kyrsten Sinema blasts Republicans who shouted at Biden during State of the Union

    Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, I-Ariz., believes Republicans who shouted at President Biden during his State of the Union speech Tuesday are "beneath the dignity" of Congress. "Everyone is raucous, and I was worried people were going to start throwing hotdogs and popcorn at each other," Sinema said during a Washington Post Live event of many Republicans who heckled Biden's speech to Congress. "To be honest, I find it beneath the dignity of the United States Congress. And what I find most disturbing about it, is the fact that it’s normalized." During Biden's address, he claimed that Republicans want to sunset Medicare...

    Aconsortium of political advocacy groups are pushing for an investigation into allegations that Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (I-AZ) has had staffers running her personal errands and performing sundry household tasks on the taxpayer dime. As first reported in December by The Daily Beast, Sinema aides are bound by a 37-page memo that lays out a very specific set of demands: the senator’s groceries are to be picked up promptly, her hour-long massages are to be booked weekly, and her internet service at home in D.C. must always be in working order. (If not, an assistant “should call Verizon to schedule a...

    Senate Minority Whip John Thune (R-S.D.), one of Sen. Kyrsten Sinema’s (I-Ariz.) best friends in the Senate, is urging the newly independent senator to caucus with Republicans. Sinema announced last month that she was leaving the Democratic Party and was registering as an independent. She also said at that time that she wouldn’t caucus with Republicans. But Thune points out that Sinema has worked closely with several Republicans to advance legislation and that if she’s going to run for re-election, it will make the race far less complicated. On Monday, Democratic Rep. Ruben Gallego announced that he was running in...

    Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (I-AZ), both up for reelection in 2024, are reportedly heading to Davos, Switzerland, to be part of the United States delegation for the World Economic Forum (WEF). The annual World Economic Forum, where heads of state and executives will meet in Davos as the global economy wobbles on the verge of recession, is set to begin next week. Manchin and Sinema will be a part of this year’s United States delegation, along with a few other senators.

    Sen. Thom Tillis’ (R-NC) amnesty push is dead. That might be the best political Christmas gift in years—it’s undoubtedly the best news coming from the Hill in a long time. Tillis was working with Democrat defector Krysten Sinema (I-AZ) to get millions of illegal aliens on the citizenship track. You all know the details of the poison pill stipulation in the bill. The first 2 million Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals recipients would be able to sponsor their extended family members when they’ve completed the process. It didn’t secure the border or remove the issue from the table. It just...

    It continues to amuse me how presumably-conservative keyboard warriors latch onto — and sing the praises of — various Democrat “renegades,” including Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona (the Democrat darling of the pseudo-right), who recently announced she was leaving the Democrat Party. The question is, Sinema might be “leaving,” but how far away is she going? So in an effort to get a few things on the record, mostly the reasons she left the Democrat Pary to register as an Independent, Sinema penned an op-ed for the Arizona Republic, in which she said, fundamentally:Americans...

    President Joe Biden is “encouraged” by a lame duck proposal from Sens. Thom Tillis (R-NC) and Kyrsten Sinema (I-AZ) that gives amnesty to millions of illegal aliens and expands the number of foreign workers in the United States labor market. As Breitbart News reported, Tillis and Sinema have proposed a plan that would give amnesty to at least two million illegal aliens — those enrolled and eligible for former President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) — and bring hundreds of thousands more foreign workers into the labor market via changes to employment-based green cards.

    American Thinker ^ | 12/13/2022 | Rajan Laad
    Last Friday, Sen. Kyrsten Sinema from Arizona caused headlines when she announced she would quit the Democrat party to become independent. Sinema told Politico that she “never really fit into a box of any political party.” Sinema began her political career in the Arizona Green Party and rose to prominence for her advocacy of LGBT rights and opposition to the war on terror. However, when Sinema first ran for office, she ran as a Democrat in 2004, perhaps to increase her clout in politics. It turned out to be an astute decision; it enabled her to be elected to the...

    Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that his colleague Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (I-AZ) did not have the guts to take on special interest because she is a corporate Democrat. Anchor Dana Bash said, “I want to talk about some of those issues in a second, but first, you were a very important figure on the campaign trail for progressives ahead of the midterms as you normally are. I’m sure you’re going to be campaigning for candidates in 2024. The outgoing Arizona Democratic Party official, one of them says he expects Democrats will run their...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — Senator Mitt Romney reassured supporters today that he would be remaining a faithful member of the Democratic Party. "The Democratic Party can continue to count on me through thick and thin," said Mr. Romney in a statement. "While Senator Sinema and I have both occasionally voted with Congressional Republicans, I want voters to rest assured that I will never go turncoat like her. I'm staying put." After Sinema's exit left Senate control in the balance, Democrats rushed to reaffirm Mr. Romney's allegiance. "I knew he would stay true to his progressive roots," said Majority Leader Chuck Schumer....

    After an election campaign in which Republicans were vilified by President Biden and other Democrats as "enemies of democracy," MSNBC talking head Joe Scarborough declared that "Democrats won because Americans don't want leaders who hate. Republicans never understood the righteous wrath that led to the riots over the death of George Floyd. They made opposition to urban crime an issue in their bid for votes. Voters overwhelmingly rejected this message." Joy Behar, co-host of ABC's "The View" seconded Scarborough's interpretation, saying that "all Republicans want to do is hang out with Nazis and white supremacists." She pivoted from this smear...

    Kyrsten Sinema has decided to make her unofficial status official, as Beege wrote earlier. The Arizona senator becomes the third independent in the upper chamber, but perhaps the only truly independent figure in the chamber. Both Bernie Sanders and Angus King identify as independent, but have rarely if ever bucked Chuck Schumer’s leadership during their entire tenures — especially to the center, as Sinema has done.That raises another question about the only other member of Schumer’s caucus to follow that same pattern. And that question will only grow more acute for Joe Manchin as his own re-election date approaches. Manchin...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) berated Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (I-Ariz.) on Friday for her decision to leave the Democratic Party, arguing that voters in Arizona “deserve more.” “Not once in this long soliloquy does Sinema offer a single concrete value or policy she believes in. She lays out no goals for Arizonans, no vision, no commitments,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote in a tweet in response to Sinema’s Twitter announcement that she’s registering as an independent. “It’s ‘no healthcare, just vibes’ for Senate” the progressive lawmaker added. “People deserve more. Grateful this race & nomination has opened up,” Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet concluded. The centrist Sinema...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. is criticizing Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema after she announced her decision to leave the Democratic Party and register as an independent on Friday. Sinema announced the decision in an Arizona Republic op-ed published on Friday, criticizing America's two party system. "Americans are told that we have only two choices – Democrat or Republican – and that we must subscribe wholesale to policy views the parties hold, views that have been pulled further and further toward the extremes," Sinema wrote. "Most Arizonans believe this is a false choice, and when I ran for the U.S. House and...

    During an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper released on Friday, Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (I-AZ) stated that she supported President Joe Biden in 2020 because she “felt at the time he was the best candidate running for President.” But declined to say if she’ll support Biden in 2024 and said that she’ll “make my decision based on who I think is right for our country, who is the best person for the job.” Tapper asked, “Looking forward to 2024, will you support Joe Biden for President if he runs?”

    Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) permitted Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (I-AZ) to keep her congressional committee assignments after she announced Friday she will leave the Democrat party and become an independent. “Senator Sinema informed me of her decision to change her affiliation to Independent,” Schumer stated in a press release. “She asked me to keep her committee assignments and I agreed. Kyrsten is independent; that’s how she’s always been.” Sinema sits on four Senate committees: Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs; Commerce, Science, and Transportation; Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs; and Veterans Affairs.

    On Friday morning, Americans woke up to the news that Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) has left the Democratic Party and is now a registered independent. This defection, revealed in an op-ed in the Arizona Republic, was probably the last thing anyone expected to hear, especially mere days after Democrats officially secured a true majority in the Senate. According to The Guardian, this “bombshell defection” will have “far-reaching consequences as Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer attempts to plot a course through the upcoming Congress.” Really? Will it? I can certainly understand why it might seem that way… at first… but upon...
