    PATERSON — The raising of a flag at City Hall on Sunday was like any of the dozen or so similar events held in the city each year in a nod to its diversity.   Except it wasn’t.  That’s because the flag raised — for the first time in Paterson, and possibly at any city hall in the United States — was Palestinian. Symbols or assertions of Palestinian statehood are fraught with political sensitivities, and Khader Abuassab, the event’s organizer, said he received harassing phone calls before Sunday’s event. But no problems were on display Sunday when the flag was...

    Congressman Bill Pascrell (D - NJ) appears to be siding with former President Bill Clinton and Republicans on Capitol Hill who are concerned about the administration's plans to cede U.S. oversight of the internet to an international body. "I haven’t come to any conclusion. I think it’s an interesting concept, but I don’t know if I’m supporting it. I’m not leaning in favor of it—right now," Pascrell told Breitbart News on Monday. According to recode.net, Clinton bucked the Obama administration and told an audience at a meeting sponsored by the Clinton Global Initiative last Friday, "A lot of people who...

    November 13, 2013, 02:39 pm House Dems about to 'go crazy' By Mike Lillis and Justin Sink House Democrats on Wednesday expressed increasing frustration at the Obama administration’s inability to improve the rollout of ObamaCare. Democrats said they’re worried about "being dragged into this non-stop cycle" of bad news about the ObamaCare rollout, rather than celebrating the successes of the law they helped to pass, a Democratic aide said. "They're voicing those frustrations with the administration," the aide said following a Democratic Caucus meeting where administration officials got an earful from exasperated lawmakers.

    Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-NJ) rose from his seat on Tuesday during a congressional hearing into the Affordable Care Act’s problematic roll-out. He accused his Republican colleagues in the House of dishonestly seeking to identify the problems with the ACA because they would prefer to see it repealed entirely. Pascrell began by insisting that, even though Democrats opposed Medicare Part D in the Bush Era, they worked to make sure that the program was a success. He became animated as he said that Democrats put aside their opposition to Bush in order to make a policy objective work for the good...

    Tens of thousands of federal workers in New York City continue to feel the impact as the partial government shutdown continues. Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.) joined furloughed federal employees, union leaders and others affected by the shutdown to call on Congress to reach a compromise. Maloney said the crisis in entirely manufactured and is only being made worse with the nation getting closer to reaching its debt limit. “We need to end it I hope tonight or tomorrow morning. The idea of violating our debt ceiling is so disturbing,” she said. “A small group of conservatives are holding up the...

    Paterson NJ has often been known as Paterstine due to the large Muslim settlements there and the connections to terrorism. Including the attacks of September 11. New Jersey’s Muslim settlements in Paterson and Jersey City have long been a security problem for New York City. And the collaboration of Jersey pols like Governor Christie and Bill Pascrell with Muslim terrorists is an ongoing problem. The raising of the terrorist flag over Paterson’s City Hall is another reminder of who really wields power in the state. The “Palestinian flag”, like everything else about the fake identity group deployed by a terrorist...

    Occasional contributor Joel Mowbray (jdmowbra@erols.com) has filed a report on the Democratic primary contest this coming Tuesday in New Jersey’s Ninth Congressional District. The contest pits two incumbent Democrats against each other. Based on support in the contest for the 2008 presidential nomination, President Obama supports Steve Rothman. Rothman opponent Bill Pascrell supported Hillary Clinton. Bill Clinton is in turn supporting Pascrell. Giving the story a local angle, Minnesota Fifth District Rep. Keith Ellison makes a cameo appearance on behalf of Pascrell in Joel’s story. Joel reports: Because of redistricting, Rep. Bill Pascrell (D, NJ) is running for re-election this...

    In an upset, U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell has defeated fellow incumbent U.S. Rep. Steve Rothman in the Democratic primary for the 9th Congressional District. Rothman conceded shortly after 10:30 p.m. The two men found themselves facing off after redistricting, which put Rothman in a heavily Republican district and Pascrell in a district that more closely resembled the one Rothman had represented than his own. Rather than run an uphill battle against a Republican incumbent, Rothman chose to move to Englewood and run against Pascrell.

    Searching For Answers: From New York newspaper columnists to an Illinois senator, the liberal left is blaming the Tea Party and conservative stars for the shooting of an Arizona congresswoman. How about blaming the communist and Nazi-loving shooter? It didn't take long for New York Times columnist Paul Krugman to blame the Tea Party and Sarah Palin for the shooting outside a Tucson supermarket that seriously injured Congresswoman Gabriel Giffords and left six others, including a 9-year-old, dead. Writing Saturday, as the shooting was still fresh and little was known of the shooter or the circumstances, Krugman spoke of a...

Bill Pascrell Jr., a New Jersey Democrat, blamed the Fox News Channel for today’s shooting spree that left Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords critically wounded and four others slain. He told a local New Jersey paper shortly after the incident, "There's an aura of hate and elected politicians feed it, certain people on Fox News feed it.”He continued: "I'm sitting here talking to you and my Blackberry's sending alerts that say 'take caution.' Take caution? I'm in the United States of America!" Pascrell represents the city of Paterson.  Meanwhile, New York Times columnist Paul Krugman blamed conservative media titans Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck...

    FRONT ROYAL, Va., May 17 /Christian Newswire/ -- The Rev. Thomas J. Euteneuer, STL, president of Human Life International, (HLI) today said "Rep. Rosa L. DeLauro (CT-3) and seventeen other members of Congress who describe themselves as Catholic not only are ignorant of their faith but also need a civics lesson." Father Euteneuer was responding to their rebuke of Pope Benedict XVI in a press release from DeLauro's office which stated that the Pope's recent comments that Catholic politicians risk excommunication and should not receive Communion by saying, "Such notions offend the very nature of the American experiment and do...

    Sultan Knish blog ^ | 26 January, 2010 | Daniel Greenfield - Sultanknish
    Keith Ellison, widely hailed as America's first Muslim congressman, could more accurately be described as CAIR and Hamas' man in Congress. Congressman Ellison has been a regular presence at CAIR fundraisers and at pro-Hamas rallies in the United States. As a former member of Farrakhan's Nation of Islam , Ellison has enough anti-semitic and Islamist credentials to satisfy anyone, and had expressed openly anti-semitic beliefs in the past. Since Ellison got his start with CAIR , his attempt to provide support for Hamas is completely unsurprising. Both Hamas and CAIR are projects of the Muslim Brotherhood, which also helped...

Weber's told Pascrell that the "Public Option" would lead to "socialized medicine" and is "positively un-American." Weber said the crowd was so raucous because Pascrell and other speakers had droned on, killing all the time, and the people attending became very restless. . . . (VIDEO)

    WASHINGTON - At midday on Fridays, Muslims gather to pray in a basement room of the U.S. Capitol. Kneeling on sheets they've spread over the floor and facing east toward Mecca, they are members of the Congressional Muslim Staffers Association, about two dozen congressional aides who are part of a small but growing minority in America and in the halls of government. At first just a prayer group, later a Muslim support group, the association is now looking outward to change what many see as woeful ignorance about Islam on Capitol Hill and beyond, said Jameel Aalim-Johnson, a black Muslim...
