    At a press conference Thursday, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said people with religious beliefs who disagree with the ObamaCare contraception mandate can choose their faith or “you don’t have to form a corporation.” “You’re born with a religion or you adopt a religion. You have to obey the precepts of that religion and the government gives you a wide penumbra—you don’t have to form a corporation,” Schumer said. Schumer claims the Supreme Court’s decision that closely-held firms have a right to deny coverage for certain types of birth control they find objectionable under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) was...

    Senate Democrats said Wednesday that the Supreme Court has stretched the First Amendment too far when it comes to campaign finances, and vowed to hold a vote to amend the Constitution and undo a number of landmark decisions. Sen. Charles E. Schumer, New York Democrat and chairman of the Rules Committee, said he will push a constitutional amendment to the full floor later this year that would give Congress the power to impose strict limits on campaign finance. “It will draw to a fine point where we are at — and that is, the First Amendment is sacred, but that...

    Apparently even Sen. Chuck Schumer isn't immune to the pitfalls of the new voting system. What the hElmo is going on with these voting machines? A party insider told me Schumer showed up at his polling place, P.S. 321 in Park Slope, Brooklyn, at 5:55 a.m. "They don't open the polling place until 6:10... They can't figure out how to open the machine and he is, like, screaming at the staff that he wants to vote," the insider said.
  • Just plane rude: Sen. Charles Schumer refers to female flight attendant as the b-word

    New York's famously garrulous senior senator, Chuck Schumer, got busted Wednesday for calling a female flight attendant the B-word aboard a US Airways flight from New York to Washington on Sunday. Schumer was sitting next to protege Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, gabbing away on his phone, when a flight attendant told him to shut it down. Schumer turned off his phone, and then argued with the attendant that he was allowed to talk while the cabin door is open. He lost.
  • Senator Schumer’s call for sanctions against Britain is silly and insulting

    Telegraph Blogs (U.K.) ^ | August 31, 2009 | Nile Gardiner
    Someone needs to remind Charles Schumer that the war of 1812 is over. The senior Senator for New York is ludicrously calling for sanctions against Great Britain over the role of the Labour government in the release of Lockerbie bomber Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi. The New York Daily News quotes Schumer as saying: “If it is proven that there was a quid pro quo, even though Britain is our friend, there ought to be some sanctions.” Schumer doesn’t outline exactly what those sanctions might be and his remarks were probably made without any thought or consideration, but his comments are deeply...

    It's all part of the Hope and Change... After the election Democrats plan to continue their attacks on conservative Americans. The votes haven't even been counted yet and they're already calling for the return of the Fairness Doctrine. That was nice- Schumer just compared conservative talk to pornography. Senator Charles Schumer announced today that there will be a return of the Fairness Doctrine: Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Tuesday defended the so-called Fairness Doctrine in an interview on Fox News, saying, “I think we should all be fair and balanced, don’t you?”

    Schumer rips Chamber of Commerce By J. Taylor Rushing Posted: 10/08/08 01:17 PM [ET] DSCC Chairman Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) came out swinging Wednesday against the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, saying the business lobby was no longer nonpartisan and “has turned into a wing” of the GOP. In a press conference at Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) headquarters, Schumer said the path and pattern of the contributions indicate that the Chamber is afraid of the Democrats winning the critical Senate threshold of 60 seats — a goal he said is within reach now more than ever. Democrats already have 51 seats...

    Sen. Charles Schumer is a legendary pursuer of television cameras. But look at the way the national media are covering Schumer's heavy-breathing pursuit to make Attorney General Alberto Gonzales cry uncle and resign. It makes you wonder just how hard Schumer has to work to get press attention. The media appear Schumer-owned and operated. One interview really captures how the press acts more like a Democratic goon squad than nonpartisan observers of the national scene. On ABC's "Good Morning America," news anchor Christopher Cuomo, son of Mario Cuomo, asked this pushy question on July 27: "Is Alberto Gonzales out of...

    Just the Truth? Why the Republicans Have Changed Their Tune Over the years, Republicans have held hearings on Bill Clinton’s Christmas card list and called for answers on Socks the Cat’s fan mail. Yet they continue to stonewall attempts to question key players in the scandal surrounding the apparently politically-motivated firing of eight U.S. Attorneys. Despite emails showing that top White House advisers such as Harriet Miers and Karl Rove were involved in the decision, the White House has cited executive privilege and placed restrictions on their cooperation with Congress such as demanding closed-door hearings with no transcripts and even...

    “For me, this is a second betrayal,” said Iraq War veteran Paul Hackett on Monday, announcing his withdrawal from Ohio’s Democratic primary for the seat of Republican incumbent Senator Mike DeWine. “First, my government misused and mismanaged the military in Iraq, and now my own party is afraid to support candidates like me.” How and why this happened reveals much about the puppet masters and special interests who from behind the scenes control today’s Democratic Party.

    Campaign: Thieves Stole Computers ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- A Republican U.S. Senate candidate's staff reported on Wednesday a theft at its offices. A spokesman for Michael Steele's campaign said the new campaign headquarters in Annapolis was broken into and computers were stolen sometime Tuesday night or Wednesday morning. Campaign spokesman Leonardo Alcivar said they don't currently believe the incident was anything other than a break-in for the purposes of theft. He said it appears they lost a few laptop computers, but no sensitive data was compromised. Alcivar said the office has a series of both digital security measures and redundancies in...
