    We’ve been covering some of the early 2020 polling here recently and the same group of names keeps coming up for the Democratic nomination. At the top, we find Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders in almost every survey. More recently, Beto O’Rourke has climbed into the mix (somehow). In this Age of Diversity and Year of the Woman, doesn’t something seem to be missing? That’s what Kirsten Gillibrand suggested when she sat down for an interview with Van Jones on Friday night. Does it bother her that the frontrunners are, not to put too fine of a point on...

    The Future is Female – The Christine Ford Effect Breaking down the feminist code words in Sen. Gillibrand's tweet. December 14, 2018 Dawn Perlmutter In an attempt to establish her feminist bona fides ahead of a likely run for president in 2020, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand tweeted on December 4th “Our future is: Female, Intersectional, Powered by our belief in one another. And we’re just getting started.” Gillibrand’s tweet is loaded with feminist code words. The tweet has three primary signifiers each targeting specific groups of voters. The first code “Our future is: Female” alludes to the phrase ‘The Future is...

    The future may be female, but critics say Kirsten Gillibrand's role may be limited. The Democratic U.S. senator from New York was widely mocked Wednesday after saying the future is “female” and “intersectional,” in a wink to the progressive wing of her party. “Our future is: Female, Intersectional, Powered by our belief in one another. And we’re just getting started,” Gillibrand wrote in a tweet. Critics claimed Gillibrand was trying to pander to progressives ahead of a likely run for president in 2020, looking to portray herself as a feminist firebrand. U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., for one, fired back...

    Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) on Wednesday accused President Donald Trump of fomenting hate and division, citing an increase in hate crimes through the state of New York. “I think we are in a moment in time where our country and our morality as a country is literally on knife’s edge. We have a president who has blurred, even destroyed the lines between right vs. wrong. He has demonized immigrants. He has created division and hate throughout society,” she said during a speech at the National Action Network Conference. “In New York State, we have more hate crimes than we have...

    It will come as no surprise to regular observers of New York politics that Senator Kirsten Gillibrand handily won another term on Tuesday with roughly two-thirds of the vote. (There was some ticket splitting going on because she bagged roughly 400K more votes than Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo managed in his victory.) Having put that simple chore behind her, Gillibrand wasted no time getting booked for Stephen Colbert’s show. The host asked her the obvious question concerning her plans for 2020 and received an equally predictable answer. She’s giving it, “a long, hard thought of consideration.” (New York Times) Senator...

    New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand vowed to serve her full six-year term if she wins reelection in November, meaning she would not to challenge President Donald Trump in 2020. She has been mentioned a possible presidential contender, given her strength as a fundraiser and prominent perch in the Senate as a female lawmaker who represents an influential state. 'I will serve my six-year term,' Gillibrand said when asked about a presidential bid during a debate in Manhattan Thursday night against her GOP challenger Chele Farley.

    Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) and Kirsten Gillibrand (D., N.Y.) spoke Thursday outside the Supreme Court at a rally hosted by prominent Women's March organizers and anti-Israel activists Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory. Sarsour and Mallory hosted the rally to show their support for Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, one of the women who have accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct. Both Sarsour and Mallory shared remarks before turning over the microphone to Warren, who said that she believes Ford's testimony.

    It took the French Revolution ten years (1789-1799) to go from an idealistic fight for freedom to the one-man rule of Napoleon, but these are fast-moving times and the #MeToo movement has gone from the necessary correction of monsters like Harvey Weinstein to an all-out assault on the rule of law and hatred of the entire male sex in about eighteen months. (Well, it was men who came up with the Magna Carta.) Think I'm exaggerating? How about the nauseating misandry of the senator from Hawaii, Mazie Hirono? Not only, in the eyes of Ms. Hirono, is Brett Kavanaugh automatically...

    Giving Christine Blasey Ford the opportunity to testify about her unsubstantiated accusations of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is, somehow, silencing her, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) declared Wednesday night. Refusing to launch an FBI investigation into Ford’s claims is also “silencing her,” Sen. Gillibrand said in a tweet: “Denying Dr. Ford an FBI investigation is silencing her. Forcing her into a sham hearing is silencing her. And pushing through Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation is silencing her.”

    A shout-out from President Trump has given a boost to a long-shot hopeful in the New York Senate race. Republican Chele Farley has a decidedly uphill battle in her race against Democrat incumbent Kirsten Gillibrand. Polls conducted earlier this summer have Gillibrand, running for her second full term in the Senate, ahead of Farley by an average of 29 points. So Farley was pleased when Trump called out her name at a Utica fundraiser earlier this month. "I want to thank Shell Farley," Trump said. "Good luck.” “It was unexpected," Farley said. "But I was very happy that he talked...

    Progressive female lawmakers said Tuesday Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh will overturn a woman’s right to an abortion and endanger women’s access to health care, creating a life or death situation if he’s confirmed to the high court. The Democratic senators claimed the president’s nominee was selected by right-wing, conservative groups who want to repeal the Affordable Care Act and overturn Roe v Wade, the 1973 landmark decision creating a legal right to an abortion.

    Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) said President Donald Trump’s values didn’t ”line up with most Americans.” Gillibrand said, “I think what happens in November is going to decide what our country looks like. I think this election is a referendum on President Trump. On the fact that he doesn’t represent most Americans. That his values don’t line up with most Americans. And so being heard in this election sets the stage for everything in the future.”

    Pro-Trump mother and businesswoman, Chele Farley is running for the United States Senate in hopes of replacing Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, who she says has embraced a socialist platform. Farley spoke to the Gateway Pundit to explain why supporting her in this race is so important for New Yorkers and our nation. When asked if she will support President Donald Trump from the Senate, Farley explained that she voted for him and thinks that his treatment by certain parts of the media has been very unfair. Farley is also a hardcore advocate for term-limits, so much so that she has personally...

    TOWN HALL ^ | July 17, 2018 | Cortney O'Brien
    The pushback against President Trump's latest Supreme Court nominee has reached peak outrage, specifically in the pro-abortion movement. Liberal lawmakers and activists are under the impression that Kavanaugh's presence on the bench will mean the end of Roe v. Wade, the 1973 ruling that legalized abortion. That was House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's impression. She said Kavanaugh could "put everything at risk" and a vote for him is a vote to "destroy" Roe v. Wade. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) was the latest Democrat to suggest this in a recent interview with Glamour magazine. Gillibrand, who’s generated buzz as a possible...

    Some Democrats said they don’t have to wait for President Trump to pick a Supreme Court nominee — they’re voting “No” regardless of who he names. Sen. Bob Casey became the latest one, saying Monday that the entire process the president has followed was “corrupt” because he was working from a list he wrote with the help of the conservative Heritage Foundation and Federalist Society. Mr. Casey, Pennsylvania Democrat, said both of those groups have ties to corporations and he rejected anything that had their input. “Any judge on this list is fruit of a corrupt process straight from the...

At the time of the raid, I tweeted: “The raid is just one more reason to shut the Mueller operation down – it’s constitutionally suspect, ethically compromised, & frankly has no reason for being – given the fact that there’s no evidence of @RealDonaldTrump-Russia collusion.” Judicial Watch began an investigation that has resulted...
