    “Gun Owners of America [has] blasted the bill as a ‘fake pro-gun bill designed to re-elect endangered anti-gun [Senators] up in 2014 in pro-gun states.’” -- Roll Call, July 9, 2014 Earlier today, the “Harry Reid Preservation Act,” S. 2363, went down to defeat, as pro-gun Senators successfully filibustered the bill by a vote of 56-41. As you know, S. 2363 was a “nothing-burger bill” which existed solely to elect anti-gun Democrats in Red States. This includes Senators like sponsor Kay Hagan (D-NC) -- pluscosponsors such as Mark Begich (D-AK), Mark Pryor (D-AR), Mark Udall (D-CO), Mary Landrieu (D-LA), Al...

    Have we reached Peak Reid Demagoguery yet? I thought we had yesterday when Democrats signed onto Harry Reid’s Kochsteria strategy for the 2014 midterms, but we actually missed the new nadir for America’s top-ranked demagogue — but our good friend Larry O’Connor at the Free Beacon didn’t.

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is so angry over the Supreme Court’s 5-4 decision in the Hobby Lobby contraception case last week that he apparently forgot Justice Clarence Thomas is black. The Nevada Democrat lamented the court’s ruling which allows Hobby Lobby and other for-profit companies with religious objections to certain forms of contraception to avoid providing them to employees in health insurance plans mandated under Obamacare. Hobby Lobby approves of 16 out of 20 forms of contraception that have been approved by the FDA. “People are going to have to walk down here and vote, and if they vote...

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Monday that Democrats will take up legislation in the “coming weeks” to address last month’s Supreme Court decision that allowed some employers with religious objections to opt out of Obamacare’s contraception mandate. Democrats on Capitol Hill have overwhelmingly criticized the high court’s ruling in the Hobby Lobby case and are working to craft a response that would restore the coverage, though no specifics have yet been outlined. “We’re going to do something about the Hobby Lobby legislation,” Reid said on the Senate floor Monday as he ticked off the Senate’s to-do list over the...

    I have been saying for months it is Harry Reid who is one of the problems. If I said it once, I've said it a thousand times. Bills land on his desk weekly from the house, and he just throws them in the dust bin. He is probably under orders from the President. This allows Obama to continue telling Americans that the do-nothing Republicans in Congress don't get any bills to his desk to have a chance at becoming law. The Prez has his liberal media lap dogs eating up every word he says, so the un-informed broader American public...

    SEARCHLIGHT, Nev. — Harry Reid grew up in a shack in this dusty old gold-mining outpost in the middle of the desert. As he rose to political power, he amassed personal wealth and began living part time in a condo in Washington. But he never stopped holding tightly to a gritty public persona grounded in his Searchlight roots — building a house here and keeping the town his official residence. Along the way, a tiny town that thrived only briefly during a gold rush more than a century ago gained bragging rights as home to the most powerful man in...

    Republican U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky has found an unlikely ally in U.S. Senate in Majority Leader Harry Reid, at least on a measure which would return non-violent felons their right to vote. Paul has been pushing to restore the voting rights to non-violent felons in Kentucky, speaking to community members in West Louisville about the initiative and appearing in a state Senate committee meeting in February. The legislation, which was drafted in the form of a constitutional amendment, was changed by state Senate Republicans in Frankfort, and never made it to a floor vote in the Senate. In...

    The U.S. Trademark Trial and Appeal Board’s cancelation of federal trademark registration for the name Washington “Redskins,” after ruling it disparages Native Americans, puts pressure on team owner Daniel Snyder and the National Football League (NFL) to change the name but falls far short of settling the issue. The split, 2-1, decision by unelected trademark board members shows the increasingly heavy hand that politics is playing in the activities of the private sector, since the ruling followed recent public calls for a name change from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. The team counters that the long-standing “Redskins” name...

    It must be a Garden of Eden out there because the federal government has the time to go after the Redskins, known around Dallas as NFL enemy #1. According to a "trademark" decision, the US government is now in the business of determining whether or not a team mascot discriminates against a group. Who is next? Will the Obama administration soon decide that American Thinker discriminates against Americans who don't think? The decision is absurd and I hope that Mr Snyder, and fans all over, stand up against this nonsense. The decision also comes at a time when there are...

    In the late 1980s the Democratic Party decided that appealing to its donor base required strict adherence to the notion of abortion on demand. Anyone who was pro-life (like Al Gore [1], Jesse Jackson [2], and Harry Reid [3]) either switched sides or was chased out of the party.Today, there are virtually no pro-life Democrats. And soon, thanks to a major push from Barack Obama to please his Sierra Club and Hollywood donors by saddling the coal industry with strict new regulations, there may be no pro-carbon energy Democrats. In turn, this may create a long-term advantage for Republicans...

    The 113th Congress is not done with its debate over guns and background checks. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid hinted on Tuesday that his chamber may vote on the bipartisan gun background checks bill again this year — and said such a law could have prevented a mass shooting in Las Vegas. In the wake of the killing of two police officers in Nevada in a shooting that ultimately left five people dead including the shooters, Reid made the case that since the Senate’s bipartisan background check legislation died last spring, there’s been little slowdown in the number of high-profile...

And squarely behind that movement, the film argues, are the Koch brothers.

    74-year-old Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid suffers from dementia. He’s spent half a century in politics. You may feel for him, but it’s time for him to retire. Reid has a growing tendency to forget basic facts. If this is due to dementia, he should leave public office because it is not fair to those of us who are paying him to work efficiently. However if he does not have dementia, then he is simply dishonest. “I have to be very honest,” “To be honest,” and “If you want my honest opinion, and I know you do,” are some of...

The proposed amendment was introduced by Sen. Tom Udall (D-CO) as S.J.R. 19 and if ratified would become the Twenty-Eighth Amendment.

    A retired United States Army colonel expects as many as 30 million like-minded individuals will descend on Washington, DC this week and demand that President Barack Obama and other members of his administration be booted from office. Those are just some of the demands that Col. Harry Riley, founder of “Operation American Spring,” said he’ll ask the Obama administration to adhere to when militia members and patriots of all sorts arrive in the nation’s capital on Friday and begin demonstrating against a government the group considers to be in violation of the principles established by the founders of the country....

    Repeated rants against the Koch brothers appear to be insufficient to calm Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev). “What's needed,” says Reid, “is a Constitutional Amendment aimed specifically at stopping them.” “These two men are an existential threat to America,” Reid argued. “They are, perhaps, the single biggest factor behind global warming. We cannot afford to treat them like ordinary citizens. Extraordinary measures must be taken to stave off their attacks on our Government.” The “attacks” Reid wants to stave off are studies that contradict Administration policies and candidates that vie to unseat Democratic officeholders—both funded by donations from the...

    The American Prospect ^ | May 16, 2014 | Paul Waldman
    Think fast: Which politicians from the other side do you merely dislike, and which do you absolutely despise? Can you say why? I was thinking about this because of Harry Reid, who really, really gets on conservatives' nerves, and seems to be constantly trying to figure out new ways to make them mad. Unlike Nancy Pelosi, who generates contempt from the right mostly for who she is (a San Francisco liberal, a woman with power), with Reid it's about what he does, specifically his propensity for saying things about conservatives that are over the top. Most liberals look at Reid...

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, one of the Obama administration's staunchest allies in Congress, announced his opposition Thursday to Michael Boggs’ nomination to the federal bench, dealing a strong if not fatal blow to the former Georgia state lawmaker’s confirmation hopes. “Somebody should have looked a little more deeply into his record,” Reid said of Boggs, nominated to the U.S. District Court in Georgia. He faced sharp questioning at a recent confirmation hearing into his past support for state proposals to post information online about doctors who perform abortions and to keep the Confederate battle emblem on the Georgia flag....

    Senate Democrats are refusing to let supporters of the Keystone XL oil pipeline to use an energy efficiency bill as a vehicle to attempt winning congressional approval for the controversial project. Majority Leader Harry Reid used a parliamentary move Wednesday to block a Republican amendment on the pipeline as well as a measure to prevent the Environmental Protection Agency from imposing new greenhouse gas regulations on coal-burning power plants.

    Complete Title: The Democrats are running a Hispanic, Former Gang Member, Car Thief and Baby Killer and “They Love Her” Lucy Flores is the new shining light for the Democratic Party in Nevada State. Can this former gang member be the new face of the Dems in a state to go totally Republican due to Harry Reid’s dubious ways? Flores is from the seedy streets of Las Vegas in a predominately Hispanic neighborhood that shadows the infamous Las Vegas Strip. She had dropped out of high school by the age of 17, been arrested for driving a stolen car on...

    If you have not seen the Judge Jeanine Video, it is must see. ****** It has been established that Clark County Ranchers have been run out of business, but why? 52 of 53 are now gone. Most of Clark is wide open and suitable for ranches. Other ranchers have gone on record that they were run out of business on purpose by the BLM. This article has one of the run out of business ranchers explain on video how the BLM did it. http://aun-tv.com/obama-willing-to-shoot-americans-for-cattle-blm-backs-down-bundy-ranch-wins/ In the last two days more info has come out that Harry Reid or family is...

    Majority Leader Harry Reid compared his Republican colleagues to “greased pigs” on Tuesday as the Senate erupted in frustration over lack of progress on an energy bill and the Keystone XL pipeline. “For all those who don’t know what a greased pig contest is, here’s what it is: The organizers get a little pig, piglet, and they cover this little animal with tons of grease. It’s a greasy little pig,” Reid said. “The reason I mention this: Oftentimes working with my Senate Republican colleagues reminds me of chasing one of these little pigs in a greased pig contest. Regardless of...

    Harry Reid is proud of his vote for ObamaCare. He’s even prouder of the fact that he figured out a procedural way to ram it through the Senate without a single Republican vote. I wonder how proud he is of its result? Local business owners might be hoping the Affordable Care Act’s insurance mandates cover sticker shock.The law’s employer coverage mandate doesn’t take effect until 2015, but early plan renewals are starting to roll in. And for some businesses, the premium jumps are positively painful.Local insurance brokers are reporting spikes ranging from 35 percent to 120 percent on policies that...

    Sen. Rand Paul has warned Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) that he will place a hold on one of President Obama’s appellate court nominees because of his role in crafting the legal basis for Obama’s drone policy. Paul, the junior Republican senator from Kentucky, has informed Reid he will object to David Barron’s nomination to the 1st Circuit Court of Appeals, unless the Justice Department makes public the memos he authored justifying the killing of an American citizen in Yemen. -SNIP- The ACLU has sided with Paul, who has a handful of Democratic allies. “No senator should be voting...

    I am not generally a conspiracy believer, but last week, as the result of a Freedom of Information action by Judicial Watch - a conservative legal organization - at least one email was released that directly linked the White House to the immediate reaction to the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi that killed four Americans, including the American Ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens. The Benghazi attacks took place on September 11, 2012. The Obama Administration's first response - and it was a significant response - was that the attack on the American compound in Benghazi was a reaction...

    Questions, questions… I have a whole lot of them for Harry Reid. I know that his salary as a Senator, is about 200k per year. And I know that he made a substantial amount as an attorney. What I want to know, is how much he has made off land in Nevada. Specifically BLM land and mining/mineral rights. Open Secrets states Reid’s value is between 2.5 and 6 million. I actually don’t believe that. I believe he has money buried in the desert so-to-speak, in shell companies and third parties all over the place. I’m all for making a lot...

    Original Title:Vanderboegh to Harry Reid: “Don’t Poke the Wolverine With a Sharp Stick… Unless You Want Your B***s Ripped Off.” A militia leader who traveled to Nevada in order to protect the land surrounding Cliven Bundy’s Clark County ranch has accused Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of trying to provoke a new civil war in the United States. Video has emerged this week of Mike Vanderboegh, the founder of the Three Percenters group, lashing out at Sen. Reid (D-Nevada) during a recent address at the ranch, where supporters remain on site after federal officials attempted last month to confiscate the...
