  • Dem Senator Uses Info From Conspiracy Blogs To Draw Trump-Russia Connections

    Daily Caller ^ | 10 May 2017 | Alex Pfeiffer
    Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Ed Markey uses conspiracy theory-laden blogs as sources for information on alleged Trump-Russia connections, according to a top aide in his office. “In fact, subpoenas have now been issued in Northern Virginia in regard to General Flynn and General Flynn’s associates. A grand jury has been empaneled up in New York,” the Massachusetts Democrat said in a Wednesday CNN interview. One of Markey’s top aides told The Daily Caller that his sources were Louise Mensch’s blog and a left-wing blog called the Palmer Report. Markey did not mention these sources in his television appearance.

    There is very dangerous legislation making its way through both the House of Representatives and Senate that will finish the United States. The sharia bill calls for Islamic blasphemy laws — the criminalization of speech that offends or insults — who, exactly? Well, that is up to the enforcer, is it not? On Wednesday, Senator Ed Markey (D-MA) introduced “The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014″ (S.2219), which seeks “to examine the prevalence of hate crime and hate speech on the Internet, television, and radio to better address such crimes.” Congressman Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) introduced a companion bill in the...
  • US Sen. Ed Markey says expected withdrawal of fuel economy emissions standards 'wrong way to go'

    03/15/2017 12:57:16 PM PDT · by matt04 · 27 replies
    U.S. Sen. Ed Markey, D-Massachusetts, took issue Wednesday with reports that the White House will move away from Obama-era fuel economy emissions standards for model year 2022 to 2025 cars and light trucks, saying it's "the wrong way to go for our security, economy and environment." The Massachusetts Democrat, who sits on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, spoke out against the proposed rollback shortly before President Donald Trump was expected to direct the Environmental Protection Agency to reconsider its conclusion that car makers could meet the strict limits on greenhouse gas emissions. Contending that gas prices are "the...
  • Is Markey still proud of his Obamacare vote?

    If you happen to run into U.S. Sen. Eddie Markey at Whole Foods in Chevy Chase -- as in Maryland -- ask him if he still feels good about giving us Obamacare. Of the thousands of votes he has cast in his 38 years as a member of Congress, first in the U.S. House and now in the Senate, he is "proudest" of his vote in favor of the health-care plan. "It is my proudest vote," Markey said repeatedly in the House, and then again as a candidate for the U.S. Senate in 2014. The question is relevant in the...

    And you thought the Treasurer’s debate would be boring. That was the observation made by Fox 31 political reporter Eli Stokols as he moderated a debate between Treasurer Walker Stapleton and failed Congresswoman Betsy Markey. At about the 7 minute mark in the below video is when things get really heated. Stapleton asks Markey a basic question about public finance: “Could you describe to me what a yield curve is, please?” She is unable to answer. ... Stapleton has a degree in business economics from the London School of Economics and an MBA from Harvard Business School. He is not...
  • Sen. Markey Wants to Establish Special LGBT Envoy at State Department

    A bill introduced June 12 by Senator Ed Markey (D-MA), would establish a special envoy at the State Department to coordinate America’s “global response” on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) issues and allow LGBT individuals “who have a well-founded fear of persecution...to seek protection in the United States.” The International Human Rights Defense Act of 2014 would reinforce the Obama administration’s already established foreign policy position on LGBT rights, including the public funding of overseas LGBT groups. In addition, the bill would require annual congressional briefings on “the status of the human rights of LGBT people internationally” and institute...

    Fuel Fix ^ | 6/16/2014 | Jennifer A. Dlouhy
    WASHINGTON — A decades-old decision by the Commerce Department to abandon congressionally mandated restrictions on natural gas exports could jeopardize current plans to sell the fossil fuel overseas, Sen. Ed Markey charged Monday. Although Congress passed a law in 1975 directing the government to bar exports of U.S. oil and natural gas, the Commerce Department never got further than crude. And when Commerce formally delegated gas export issues to the then one-year-old Energy Department in 1978, it did so citing a much older 1938 law and the regulations born under it — without any mention of the newer 1975 mandate....

    The Washington Times ^ | May 1, 2014 | Cheryl K. Chumley
    Democrat Sen. Edward Markey from Massachusetts says the government should crack down on broadcast messages that promote what he calls hate crimes, by regulating content on television, radio and the Internet. He’s proposed commissioning a government study to find ways to stop the broadcast outlets from “encouraging hate crimes” through their various communications, Breitbart reported. But First Amendment supporters say it can’t be done. “This proposed legislation is worse than merely silly,” said civil liberties lawyer Harvey Silverglate, in Breitbart. “It is dangerous. It is not up to Sen. Markey, nor to the federal government, to define for a free...

    The former chair of the House communications subcommittee wants the government to look into so-called hate speech on broadcast, cable and the Internet and offer up ways to "address" that use of telecommunications. In the wake of the Kansas shootings, Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) has introduced a bill, The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 (S.2219), that would update a two-decade old report on the role of telecommunications—the Internet, radio and TV—"in encouraging hate crimes based on gender, race, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation." In 1992, Markey, then a member of the House, used the Telecommunications Authorization Act to direct...

    During his 37 years in the U.S. House of Representatives, Democrat Ed Markey built a reputation as a legislator concerned about the environment. And now as the junior U.S. senator from Massachusetts, he is set to become the new chair of the Senate Climate Change Clearinghouse. Although the clearinghouse is an unofficial open forum for members of the Senate, it is the place where ideas for environmental legislation may take form. Markey, who had significant support from environmentalists in the special election to replace John Kerry, takes the duty along with co-chairs and Democratic senators Barbara Boxer of California and...

    Customers have been calling on Time Warner Cable and CBS Corp. to resolve their ongoing carriage dispute that has resulted in channels going dark in several markets including Los Angeles and New York. Now politicians are demanding an end to the blackout. Sen. Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.), who recently won John F. Kerry's Senate seat, on Tuesday asked the Federal Communications Commission to step in and restart negotiations.

    RINO Republican Gabriel Gomez lost to Democrat Ed Markey in the special election to fill the Massachusetts U.S. Senate seat vacated by John Kerry. I say, “Thank God”. We can not allow Democrat-Lite RINO Republicans like Gomez to define the GOP. However, I have little hope that the stuck on fear, panic and stupid GOP will “get it”. Despite wasting tons of money backing Gomez who agrees with 90% of the Democrat agenda, he still lost. And yet, I guarantee the GOP will interpret the loss as evidence that our party needs to move further to the left. Why should...

    Massachusetts voters elevated a veteran congressman to the U.S. Senate on Tuesday, choosing longtime Democratic Rep. Edward J. Markey to fill John F. Kerry’s unexpired term. With 82% of precincts reporting, Markey held an 8-percentage-point lead over Republican Gabriel Gomez, and the Associated Press declared him the winner. Markey will serve 17 months; the seat will be on the ballot again in November 2014. The race to replace Kerry, who resigned Feb. 1 to become U.S. secretary of State, began with the lessons of another Massachusetts special election fresh in both parties' minds. But the prospect of another upset fizzled...

Edward J. Markey’s Senate run and meet with marathon bombing victims, urged local Democrats to “max out!” their donations to 
help keep the president’s agenda alive. “My husband can’t do it alone,” Obama said. “He absolutely needs folks like Ed Markey in the Senate to make it happen. So here in the state of Massachusetts, we need you to do everything you can over these next four weeks to get Ed Markey elected.” “And it’s all on you,” Obama said, as the crowd laughed.

    Of course, the problem with urging people to use a hashtag like this one is that there’s a way to measure your ad’s effectiveness. And this one isn’t doing that well. If you don’t count current Markey campaign and other Democratic political staff, political consultants, abortion-rights groups that are backing Markey, journalists writing about the ad, and people mocking the hashtag, about 13 real honest-to-goodness people have actually tweeted or retweeted this hashtag in the ten hours or so since it was posted online.

    Massachusetts Rep. Edward J. Markey won the Democratic nomination for Secretary of State John Kerry’s old Senate seat Tuesday, advancing to summer special election campaign against Republican Gabriel Gomez which the Democrat will be heavily favored to win. With 60 percent of precincts reporting, the Associated Press called the race for Markey, who led Rep. Stephen F. Lynch 57 percent to 43 percent. Three years after Massachusetts Democrats nominated Attorney General Martha Coakley, a flawed candidate who was upset by Republican Scott Brown in the race for late Sen. Ted Kennedy’s seat, Democratic leaders sought to clear the field early...
