    The Syracuse Post-Standard ^ | October 22, 2018 | Mark Weiner
    U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand on Monday said she will support the construction of a street-level community grid to replace the elevated portion of Interstate 81 in Syracuse.Until now, Gillibrand declined to take a position on the issue, saying it was up to Central New Yorkers to choose the best option for replacing the 1.4-mile viaduct that cuts through the heart of Syracuse.Gillibrand, D-N.Y., said during a visit to Syracuse on Monday that she decided to speak out after discussions with community stakeholders who favor the grid over a tunnel or new elevated highway."Given where the stakeholders are -- and given what...

    Facebook is being hit with fresh criticism from Capitol Hill as lawmakers reacted harshly Thursday to a New York Times investigation that detailed the company’s efforts to wield influence in Washington after becoming aware of Russia-linked activity on its platform during the 2016 presidential campaign. The explosive article laid out how Facebook’s leadership was reluctant to confront the Russian efforts on its platform and was unprepared for the subsequent firestorm and fallout, which involved the Cambridge Analytica scandal. Specifically, the Times reported that the tech giant used a Republican opposition research firm called Definers Public Affairs to accuse liberal financier...

    Newly appointed Acting AG Whitaker is obviously a force to be reckoned with and immediately took on Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer. Senator Schumer has already jumped on the call for the Acting AG to recuse himself, but he is no longer dealing with Jeff Sessions. It is clear that Special Counsel Robert Muller’s Russia probe will be closely overseen by Acting AG Matthew Whitaker. That has had liberal noggins exploding all over the beltway since he was announced. As Written and Reported By Matt Vespa for Townhall: President Trump fired Jeff Sessions from his attorney general post yesterday. Matthew Whitaker...

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., told President Trump to “cut the crap” after the president floated holding a new election in Arizona due to alleged election fraud in the tight race between Democrat Kyrsten Sinema and Republican Martha McSally. “Just out — in Arizona, SIGNATURES DON’T MATCH. Electoral corruption - Call for a new Election? We must protect our Democracy!” Trump tweeted Friday afternoon. Schumer responded: “Mr. President: Every voter is entitled to vote whether they agree with you or not. Democracy is stronger than you are. Cut the crap.”

    Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said on Wednesday that acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker should recuse himself from oversight of the Russia probe. “Given his previous comments advocating defunding and imposing limitations on the Mueller investigation, Mr. Whitaker should recuse himself from its oversight for the duration of his time as acting attorney general,” Schumer said in a statement.

    Top congressional Democrats on Wednesday slammed President Trump's response to a series of suspicious packages sent to prominent Democratic officials, saying his "words ring hollow." "Time and time again, the President has condoned physical violence and divided Americans with his words and his actions," Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.) and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) said in a joint statement. The two Democratic leaders pointed to Trump's support for Rep. Greg Gianforte (R-Mont.), who pleaded guilty to assaulting a reporter, and accused the president of supporting "dictators around the world who murder their own citizens, and referring to...

    Friday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said Democrats were running “neck and neck” to win the majority in the Senate in the midterms. Schumer said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) recent comments on health care and social programs are a “game changer.” When asked what the Democrats message is, Schumer said, “Very simple. First and foremost, better health care at lower cost. it’s the number one issue in America.” He continued, “Let me just say this. Mitch McConnell gave us a gift in the last three days. He showed who the Republican Party really...

    The despicable treatment now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh received at his Senate confirmation hearing proves conclusively that the Democratic Party is not the party of women – it is the party of exploiting women for political gain. In their eagerness to pander to women by saying absolutely anything that might win their votes, Democrats were even willing to throw out the centuries-old concept that is the foundation of our legal system: the presumption that we are all innocent until proven guilty. Democrats insisted that women accusing Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct should automatically be believed with absolutely zero evidence to back...

    Democrats can defeat the Trump base. But only if they ditch Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi — and rally female voters What the angry white male writing this column wants to know is who will hit back for the Democrats? My polling cohort, older white men, took a public-relations beating during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings — and I say it’s about time. Never in modern political history have so many been given so much by our culture and yet have been so casual about the health of the Republic.

    Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) told nationally-syndicated radio talk show host Hugh Hewitt on Tuesday that Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-New York) and his "political operation" was behind the leaking of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford "from the very beginning." @@ SEN. TOM COTTON (R-ARKANSAS): Hugh, I believe the Schumer political operation was behind this from the very beginning. We learned last week that a woman named Monica McLean was Ms. Ford’s roommate, and she was one of the so-called beach friends who encouraged Ms. Ford to go to Dianne Feinstein and the partisan Democrats on the Judiciary Committee. Well, it just turns...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told the San Francisco Chronicle editorial board on Wednesday that Democrats would make exposing President Donald Trump’s tax returns a top priority if they win a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives in November and she is elected Speaker of the House. Democrats have been obsessed with Trump’s tax returns since the 2016 election, convinced that they will turn up information that would damage or disqualify him, though the information has always been available to the Internal Revenue Service. Last year, MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow was mocked for hyping a Trump tax return...
  • Senate defeats measure to overturn Trump expansion of non-ObamaCare plans

    The Hill ^ | 10/10/18 | PETER SULLIVAN
    The Senate on Wednesday defeated a Democratic measure to overrule President Trump’s expansion of non-ObamaCare insurance plans as Democrats seek to highlight health care ahead of the midterm elections. The Democratic measure would have overruled Trump’s expansion of short-term health insurance plans, which do not have to cover people with pre-existing conditions or cover a range of health services like mental health or prescription drugs. It was defeated on an extremely narrow, mostly party line 50-50 vote, with Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) voting with Democrats in favor of overturning the short-term plans. Republicans argue the short-term plans simply provide a...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.) challenged Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) on Sunday to name one person from President Donald Trump's list of potential Supreme Court justices that he finds acceptable. "This is a list that was compiled in November, but he actually put it out during the campaign," Graham told "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace, as he held up the list. "Twenty something people on this list, asking Chuck Schumer, name five, name three, name one that would be okay with you." Schumer and fellow Democrats tried to pressure Trump and Republicans to withdraw then Supreme...

    The real question for Democrat voters is how long they will allow their leaders to fool them? The victory to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court is a great victory, of this there is no doubt among those who are trying to protect and defend the values and principles in the Constitution. However, Senator Chuck Schumer, the senior United States Senator from New York, delivered the key hope for the Democrats in this election year: to vote - an appeal to vote. Yet, his message should be a rallying cry for all people of genuine faith, all sincere...

    These previous weeks have been nothing short of unprecedented. The Democrats pulled every dirty trick in the book to make sure Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh never donned the robe of a Supreme Court Justice. But all of this now seems to be coming to an end as the FBI investigation has come back with nothing damning against Kavanaugh, and Mitch McConnell now calling for the vote to confirm Kavanaugh to be held tomorrow. As Joe Cunningham wrote earlier, McConnell wouldn’t be calling for the vote if he didn’t have them. Sen. Jeff Flake and Susan Collins also appear to...

Having received a thorough briefing on the documents, those fears have been realized.”

Neither a constitutional republic nor a democracy can survive that.” Princeton’s much-admired political theorist...
