    WASHINGTON, July 29 — June was a busy month for Senator Charles E. Schumer. On the phone, at large parties and small gatherings around the nation, he raised more than $1 million from the booming private equity and hedge fund industries for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, of which he is chairman. But there is another way Mr. Schumer has been busy with hedge fund and private equity managers, an important part of his constituency in New York. --snip-- From January through June, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee raised nearly $2 million from executives and employees of private equity and...

    5 out of the top ten US House Recipients of contributions (1989- 2001) from Arthur Andersen are democRats. Their names and the amounts are listed below. And, according to dim logic, they are guilty by association and should have their names shining in the bright lights of Reuters, AP, Drudge, The Washington ComPost, and more.

    Many will recall that on 1947 July 8, witnesses claim an unidentified object with five aliens aboard crashed on a sheep & cattle ranch just outside Roswell, New Mexico. Many contend this well published incident has long been covered up by the United States Air Force & the United States Federal Government. However, you may not know that exactly nine months after that historic event, the following were born: Albert A. Gore, Jr. Hillary R. Clinton John F. Kerry Wm. J. Clinton Howard Dean Nancy Pelosi Dianne Feinstein Barbara Boxer Didn't check on the specifics - but it would explain...

    WASHINGTON - The federal indictment of a graduate of a Saudi-backed Islamic school in suburban Virginia for plotting to kill President Bush is the latest example of the school's links to troubling activity, Sen. Charles E. Schumer, D-N.Y., charged on Wednesday. Schumer said he is asking Saudi Arabia's ambassador to the United States, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, to explain where the school receives all of its funding, and whether the school may be "a breeding ground for anti-American sentiment - and, possibly even terrorist activities." It has been widely reported the school receives substantial funding from the Saudi kingdom. Schumer...

    Charles E. Schumer, New York's press-savvy senior senator, has made a name in his state with weekly Sunday news conferences, where he chases headlines on a slow news day. Now, his Democratic colleague in Minnesota, Mark Dayton, is doing the same with his re-election in 2006 approaching. Mr. Schumer has also lifted his profile in New York by traveling to every major city at least once a month, like a candidate trailing in the polls. Now, a Democratic colleague in Washington, Maria Cantwell, is embarking on a similar schedule in that state until Election Day 2006. Coincidence? Not exactly. You...

    WASHINGTON, Nov. 15 - Senator Charles E. Schumer on Monday ruled out running for governor of New York in 2006, saying that he would instead help lead the Democratic Party's efforts to retake the Senate. Mr. Schumer's decision reshapes the political landscape in New York and leaves the field open to Eliot Spitzer, the popular Democratic state attorney general, who has been gearing up for the campaign. Gov. George E. Pataki, a Republican, has not said whether he will seek a fourth term. Mr. Schumer, 53, who was just re-elected to a second term with a record 71 percent of...

    WASHINGTON, Oct. 15 - In the halls of the Capitol, Senator Charles E. Schumer is known as a master at getting attention for his pet causes and jumping on hot-button issues. But as a one-term member of the minority party, he has far less clout than some of his Republican colleagues in seeing major priorities become law. Now, as he runs for re-election, his six years in the Senate are coming under scrutiny from a little-known opponent who argues that New York would be better served if it elected a moderate Republican who can better advance the state's causes should...

    NEWBURGH, N.Y., Oct. 6 - The Lapis Lounge at the Chianti Ristorante was filled with local business leaders seated at tables draped with light blue tablecloths. This was the 66th Newburgh Developers Association lunch, and each person had paid $15 for a buffet of pasta, eggplant, meatballs and salad, and for a midafternoon chance to talk about revitalizing their small city along the Hudson River. But first, Howard Mills, the Republican assemblyman running for United States Senate, was to speak. "Honey, no Howard Mills is speaking," said Regina Angelo, the deputy mayor, as she escorted a visitor into the back...

    Just under four months from today, Americans will be able to walk out of a gun store with an AK-47 rifle, an Uzi or other weapon of mass murder under their arm. Unless Congress acts — and Republican leaders show no inclination to do so — the 10-year-old federal assault gun ban will expire Sept. 13. A word from President Bush would get a renewal before lawmakers, a majority of whom would probably approve it. But the president is silent. Most people, including most gun owners, are properly alarmed. A survey released last month by the University of Pennsylvania's Annenberg...
