    Jewish Political Updates and News ^ | August 3 2014 | Jacob Kornbluh
    Over the weekend, both the Senate and the House approved $225M in funding for the Iron Dome. The bill passed by unanimous consent in the Senate and by a 395 to 8 vote. Opposition to the funding of the Iron Dome demonstarted an unfortunate bi-partisan measure – four Democrats and four Republicans voted against it. The four Democrats were Keith Ellison (MN-05), Zoe Lofgren (CA-19), Jim Moran (VA-08), and Beto O’Rourke (TX-16); The four Republicans were Justin Amash (MI-03), Walter Jones (NC-03), Tom Massie (KY-04), and Mark Sanford (SC-01).

    You may recall that on Friday, in what would have been a Christmas Miracle were it not several months early, Congress actually got something done. It was the passage of a bill approving $225M in funding for Israel’s Iron Dome defensive missile system. It was quite the bipartisan effort in retrospect, garnering an overwhelming 395 votes in the House with only eight in opposition. One of those eight was Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison, and as The Corner reports, he went out on the weekend gab circuit to explain why he didn’t support the measure. “Because a cease-fire is what we...

    A top building trades union is launching a midterm-election assault on House Democrats who oppose construction of the Keystone XL oil pipeline. A letter distributed Friday by the Laborers' International Union of North America (LIUNA) to the districts of 27 House Democrats calls for union members to make sure their representative "feels the power and the fury of LIUNA this November." Their crime: signing a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry last month urging him to reject Keystone, which would carry oil sands from Canada to Gulf Coast refineries.

On Monday, 40-year Capitol Hill veteran and Pelosi Democrat, George Miller (D-CA) called it quits. Miller, 68, has been in the House since 1974, the year of Watergate.

George Miller (Calif.) said he would leave Congress after 40 years and Rep. Bill Owens (N.Y.) announced Tuesday he would forgo re-election in 2014. Moran’s northern Virginia seat is heavily Democratic, and is unlikely to be competitive in November: President Barack Obama won 68 percent of the vote in both 2012 and 2008, and Moran coasted with 65 percent of the vote in 2012.

    WASHINGTON — Federal employee unions and members of Congress from Maryland, D.C. and Virginia – all Democrats – denounced House Republicans and lamented the financial pain of federal employees caused by the government shutdown during a press conference outside the Capitol Tuesday afternoon. In a political game of chicken, congressional Republicans sought this week to pass a spending bill that also defunded the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare. Because Democrats refused to budge and Republicans held fast on the legislation to defund Obamacare — parts of which went into effect Tuesday — nearly 800,000 federal employees were furloughed from...

    In Congressman Jim Moran’s (D) hometown of Alexandria, Virginia, a few years ago, some New Year’s Eve reveler ran his car into a pedestal in the middle of Washington Street. He knocked down a statue that had stood there for decades. The very liberal, very politically correct folks in Alexandria jumped at the chance to get rid of the soldier on the pedestal. That soldier is a Confederate Johnny Reb. They were about to ship Johnny off to the old soldiers home when Richmond intervened. It seems the statue was put up with state funds and couldn’t be moved without...

    Virginia Democratic Rep. Jim Moran is blaming his party's losses last November in large part on voters who "don't want to be governed by an African-American." The comments were made following President Obama's State of the Union speech Tuesday during an interview with Arab network Alhurra.

    Dem congressman tells Arab TV that GOP won the House due to Americans’ racism. On a post-State of the Union speech TV interview with, of all outlets, an Arab television station, Democrat Jim Moran of Virginia weighed in on why he thought the GOP did so well. Instead of telling the truth that the GOP wins were because of widespread irritation with Obama’s economic ruination of the US in his first two years, the congressman went to racial reasons. Specifically, he asserted that many Americans actually still have a problem with the fact that their president is an African-American. Moran...

    Jim Moran: Racism fueled Democrats' midterm losses By: Jennifer Epstein January 27, 2011 04:43 PM EST A Democratic congressman is attributing his party’s losses in the 2010 election cycle to the fact that President Barack Obama is black. Speaking to Arab television network Alhurra, Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.) said Republicans made big gains in November because “a lot of people in this country … don’t want to be governed by an African-American.” Even more objectionable to some Americans, he said, is that Obama is a black president “who is inclusive, who is liberal, who wants to spend money on everyone...

    Catholic League ^ | 12/2/2010 | n/a
    Rep. Jim Moran, Democrat of Virginia, is angry at Catholic League president Bill Donohue for protesting the anti-Christian video that was removed from the Smithsonian Institution; it was part of a larger art exhibit. What he said about Donohue, as quoted in the Washington Post, went beyond mere criticism. Moran said Donohue "implicitly condoned all the pedophilia that was going on in the church." Donohue responds today: Congressman Moran has been accused of being an anti-Semite by his own Jewish colleagues in the House of Representatives, and he has a track record of bashing the Catholic Church. So it is...
  • Dem Candidate to Veteran: Military Service Isn't Public Service

    Twenty-four years in the military doesn't count as public service, at least according to Virginia Democratic Congressman Jim Moran. In a video that's gone viral online, Moran is heard telling a Democratic gathering earlier this month that his opponent, Republican Patrick Murray, is just another unqualified GOP candidate. "What [Republicans] do is find candidates, usually stealth candidates, that haven't been in office, haven't served or performed in any kind of public service," Moran said. "My opponent is typical, frankly." The trouble is, Murray is a retired Army colonel with 24 years of service--including combat in Iraq. The idea that such...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 10/21/2010 | Barbara Hollingsworth
    Virginia Congressman Jim Moran, D-8th, doesn’t think serving in the military is public service. At the October 6th meeting of the Arlington County Democratic Committee, Moran was videotaped telling fellow party members: “What [Republicans] do is find candidates, usually stealth candidates, that haven’t been in office, haven’t served or performed in any kind of public service. My opponent is typical, frankly.” However, Moran’s opponent happens to be Col. Patrick Murray (US Army-Ret.), who served 24 years in uniform, was deployed to four different combat zones, including Baghdad, as part of the 2007 troop surge under Gen. David Petraeus, and was...

    Democrat Representative Jim Moran of Virginia's 8th District is seeking reelection and like all politicians he proudly displays those groups and individuals that have endorsed him on his campaign literature. But Moran has a bit of a problem with at least two of his claimed endorsements. They didn't endorse him. As it happens Rep. Moran has included two endorsements on his literature that simply can't have happened. He lists endorsements from Disabled American Veterans (DAV) and the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) but neither association endorsed him. Further neither ever endorse political candidates. To be sure that neither DAV...
  • Democrat Jim Moran Says “The Economy Has Recovered”; Calls Obama an “Understated Guy” – Video

    Here is video of Democrat Rep. Jim Moran telling Chris Matthews that the U.S. Economy “has recovered.” Even Chris Matthews was very skeptical when Moran said this, asking if the job numbers are good. Moran said the Economy has recovered, and actually went on to say Obama is not out trumpeting what he’s done on the campaign trail because “he’s an understated guy.” Moran is living in a parallel universe to say these things. The Economy has clearly not recovered, particularly job creation, and who in the world would ever think of the word “understated” to describe “The One?” Even...

    The economy has recovered from the recession, Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.) said last night. It's a case that many Democrats would likely be scared to embrace, given the still-high unemployment rate. "In the last six months, more jobs were created than Bush was able to generate in eight years," Moran said on MSNBC's Hardball. "People don't understand that. The economy has recovered."
