  • When Ted Kennedy's Russian Pal Wanted to Kill the Pope

    The subject head of the document, carried under the words, “Special Importance,” read: “Regarding Senator Kennedy’s request to the General Secretary of the Communist Party Y. V. Andropov.” According to the memo, Senator Kennedy was “very troubled” by U.S.-Soviet relations, which Kennedy attributed not to the murderous tyrant running the USSR but to President Reagan. The problem was Reagan’s “belligerence,” said the memo, and made worse by Reagan’s stubbornness. “According to Kennedy,” reported Chebrikov, “the current threat is due to the President’s refusal to engage any modification to his politics.” That refusal, said the memo, was exacerbated by Reagan’s political...
  • Refuse to Bake A Cake, Lose Your Gun Rights Federal Bill (Casey- D, PA)

    07/02/2017 7:54:32 AM PDT · by Red in Blue PA · 48 replies
    If you can't dazzle people with brilliance, then baffle them with bull merde. Pennsylvania Democrat Senator Bob Casey does just this with his re-introduction of the "Disarm Hate Act". His bill, should it pass, would strip gun rights from those committed of a misdemeanor hate crime. In other words: Refuse to bake a cake, lose your gun rights. Tiara Parker of Philadelphia joined microphone-chasing Casey to promote his latest proposal. Shamefully, Casey used this woman simply because the Philly resident had visited the Pulse nightclub on the fateful night a radical Islamic terrorist attacked the venue. As if getting...

    Grassroots voters are showing up at Democratic town halls to encourage their elected officials to strengthen their resistance to Donald Trump, a sign that the movement continues to grow and become more sophisticated. Voters want their elected representatives in Washington to show more backbone in their resistance to Donald Trump and the Republican Partys agenda, and they are not reticent about making it known. The message was delivered loud and clear to Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) at a town hall meeting he held at the University of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania. Most of the disagreements with Mr. Casey or tough questions...

    Pennsylvania's 2018 race for U.S. Senate is getting underway. Rick Saccone, a fiery Republican state lawmaker from suburban Pittsburgh, formally declared his candidacy Tuesday to challenge Democratic U.S. Sen. Bob Casey. Saccone held the event in the Pennsylvania Capitol, where he was joined by conservative supporters. The 59-year-old Saccone is one of the state Legislature's staunchest conservatives and is a strong backer of President Donald Trump.

  • Odds on GOP retaining Senate in 2018

    11/15/2016 8:19:59 PM PST · by Degaston · 17 replies
    The Republicans have 8 seats, Dems have 23 seats, and the 2 Dem-leaning Independents are in this Class. With 44 seats in the other 2 classes for the GOP and Pence as VP this means the Dem's have to pick off 3 seats to get the majority. Utah Hatch, Texas Cruz, Nebraska Fischer, Mississippi Wicker, and Wyoming Barrasso are about as close as possible to being done-deals that their seats stay GOP in 2018. Picking off Corker in Tennessee would be super hard to do. Flake in Arizona could be vulnerable depending on fallout with immigration enforcement. About the only...

    Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.), Iran nuclear kabuki last year, told the Council on Foreign Relations June 23 that the Joint Plan of Action, JCPOA had been successfully implemented so far... Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton is for the agreement, but Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has been skeptical. Asked about Trumps threats to renegotiate the agreement, Coons called that possibility a fools errand. Coons said that personal relationships between Secretary of State John Kerry and Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, and between Energy Secretary Ernie Moniz and Ali Salehi, Iranian Atomic Energy Agency [IAEA] have been apparently been effective....

    Senator Bob Casey (D-PA), who voted to continue funding Planned Parenthood, claims he is pro-life. A Pennsylvania constituent who wrote to both of his senators about defunding the abortion giant received a disappointing reply from Casey, who claimed his pro-life record is consistent, listing why he seems to think thats true. But Casey managed to avoid the topic of the Planned Parenthood undercover videos completely as he defended the good he believes they do. Casey writes: As a Pennsylvania public official and as a United States Senator, I have sought to support a consistent and comprehensive ethic of life and...

    Dear XXXXXXX: Thank you for taking the time to contact me about health insurance premiums and the Affordable Care Act. I appreciate hearing from you about this issue. Over the next several years, the Affordable Care Act will extend health insurance coverage to an additional 30 million Americans, ensuring that 95 percent of our Nation has access to quality, affordable care. I recognize that the Affordable Care Act is not perfect, and that some changes may need to be made. However, I believe that this law reflects our Nations commitment to ensuring access to health care for all Americans. One...

    WASHINGTON DC (KDKA) Frustration seems to be more common in Washington than the ability to reach a bipartisan deal across party lines. Pennsylvanias senior senator, a Democrat, knows who he blames. The Tea Party caused this shutdown, and if we allow it to continue, were going to have a Tea Party default and thats not good for anyone, says Sen. Bob Casey. Sen. Casey says ultraconservatives in the House are so fixated on repealing or changing Obamacare that they are willing to risk the nations economic health. If they keep throwing out the ideas theyve been talking about that...

    With all the attention focused on Ted Cruzs attempt to defund Obamacare in the continuing resolution, some of the laws parade of horribles are momentarily out of view. Come October 1, those horribles will resume their onward march as the laws impact on subsidizing elective abortion will begin to become clearer. One area that deserves special scrutiny is the feature known as Multi-State Plans (MSPs). This provision of Obamacare represented a partial victory for progressive forces who favored a national, single-payer system. In its place they accepted a category of health-insurance plans managed by the Office of Personnel Management under...
