  • House Democrat: 'American terrorists' are the real threat (He means you and me)

    The Washington Examiner ^ | January 30, 2017 | Pete Kasperowicz
    Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., said Monday that President Trump was wrong to issue an executive order temporarily banning immigrants from Muslim-majority countries because American citizens are the real terrorism threat in the U.S. "The real threat here so far is home-grown, American terrorists, and not people from these seven countries," Nadler said on CNN. Trump on Friday issued an order suspending immigration from Iraq, Iran, Libya, Syria, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen. The 90-day ban is meant to give federal agencies time to review the information they need to verify the identity of immigrants seeking to enter the United States. It...

    House Dem on ‘Quid Pro Quo’ Emails: Maybe FBI or State Dept Employee’s Conduct ‘Should Be Looked At’ BY: Chandler Gill October 18, 2016 10:02 am Rep. Jerrod Nadler (D., N.Y.) told CNN’s Aliysn Camerota on Tuesday that the alleged “quid pro quo” conversation between the State Department and FBI regarding the classification of one of Hillary Clinton’s private emails may mean that the conduct of those involved “should be looked at.” “Now, does this mean that maybe the conduct of one of the people involved in the FBI or in the State Department should be looked at?” Nadler asked....
  • House approves $602B defense bill despite White House objections

    WASHINGTON – The Republican-led House voted convincingly Wednesday to approve a $602 billion defense policy bill after rejecting attempts by Democrats to close the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and to repeal the war powers President Barack Obama relies on to fight the Islamic State (ISIS). ADVERTISEMENT The legislation, which authorizes military spending for the fiscal year beginning Oct. 1, seeks to halt a decline in the combat readiness of the U.S. armed forces by purchasing more weapons and prohibiting further cuts in troop levels. But in a 17-page statement on the policy bill, the White House detailed its...
  • Dem rep compares Taliban to soldiers in American Revolution (Nadler)

    FOXNews ^ | June 10, 2014
    A Democratic congressman offered a curious analogy on Monday to explain why the U.S. is dealing with the Taliban -- apparently comparing them to soldiers in the American Revolution. According to sources, Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., made the comparison during a House briefing late Monday with administration officials on the trade of Taliban members for American Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Nadler apparently made the point that the Taliban, as non-state actors, have a status similar to that of American soldiers who fought the British during the Revolutionary War. This comparison, Fox News is told, was met with a lot of groaning...

    The Cable - Foreign Policy ^ | JUNE 10, 2014 | JOHN HUDSON
    Facing growing skepticism on Capitol Hill about its decision to swap five Taliban prisoners for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the White House told lawmakers at a classified briefing late Monday night that some of the freed militants were political figures, not hardened soldiers, according to lawmakers who attended the session. In the past several days, the administration has rolled out a number of reasons to justify swapping Bergdahl, a potential deserter, for the five Taliban officials. White House officials said they had concerns about Berdgahl's health, felt an obligation to never leave a soldier on the battlefield, and feared the militants...

    The National Security Agency has acknowledged in a new classified briefing that it does not need court authorization to listen to domestic phone calls. Rep. Jerrold Nadler, a New York Democrat, disclosed this week that during a secret briefing to members of Congress, he was told that the contents of a phone call could be accessed "simply based on an analyst deciding that." If the NSA wants "to listen to the phone," an analyst's decision is sufficient, without any other legal authorization required, Nadler said he learned. "I was rather startled," said Nadler, an attorney who serves on the House...

    Coach is Right ^ | 1/17/13 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    For liberals facts are never really important. “Truth” to liberals like Democrat New York City Congressman Jerrold Nadler is what he “feels” it is. Nadler has said: “Hunters don’t use large ammunition clips, and as far as self- defense, I mean who are you defending yourself against? If you’re defending yourself against a robber… two or three or four shots should be enough—period.” It’s a safe bet Nadler has never faced an assailant fueled by adrenalin drugs and alcohol. That doesn’t matter, of course, since no one will ever challenge Nadler on his supposed knowledge of the danger presented by...

    (CNSNews.com) – Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said only the federal government should have “high-capacity” gun magazines and that the “state ought to have a monopoly on legitimate violence.” At a Capitol Hill press conference on Wednesday, Nadler gathered with other House Democrats to push for stricter gun control in the wake of last week’s massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., which left 26 dead, including 20 children. The lawmaker told CNSNews.com that he not only supports prohibiting the future sale of 10-round gun magazines, but he would like to confiscate high-capacity clips already legally possessed by American...

    Congressman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) is clearly an example of a purported Jew who has learned nothing from history, specifically the history of people who were disarmed by their governments. This includes not only Germany’s Jews (disarmed in 1938, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_politics_in_Germany#The_1938_German_Weapons_Act), but also the victims of the Holodomor (1932) and the Armenian victims of Turkish genocide in 1915. Historian R.J. Rummel introduced the term “democide” to describe the murder of populations by their own governments. Nadler said recently that only governments should have the power of life and death over others, which is roughly what Reichsführer Heinrich Himmler said in the 1930s:...

    In one of the worst school shootings in American history, over two dozen were left dead at a Newtown, Connecticut elementary school earlier today. And, although many facts have yet to emerge, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo called for the public to learn from “yet another senseless and horrific act of violence involving guns,” and for the government to act in response. “We as a society must unify and once and for all crack down on the guns that have cost the lives of far too many innocent Americans,” Mr. Cuomo said in a statement. “Let this terrible tragedy finally...

    Today, following the shooting massacre of 20 children in a Connecticut school, President Obama said that "meaningful action" needed to be taken to prevent such tragedies from happening in the future. But what "meaningful action" can Obama actually take, given Republican control of the House and Congress' deeply felt fear of the politically mighty National Rifle Association? And politics aside, what new laws would actually solve or make a dent in the country's crazed-gunman problem? Rep. Jerry Nadler said thinks that the president has only one option. "There’s only one meaningful action he can take, which is to take on...

    A veteran Democratic lawmaker believes the nation will go along with stronger gun control laws if President Obama “exploits” the Newtown, Conn., tragedy and nudges Congress to action. Rep. Jerrold Nadler, who represents portions of New York City, said he was encouraged by Mr. Obama’s statement on Friday afternoon that the mass shooting, which claimed the lives of 20 young children, requires “meaningful action” by Congress, but hopes those words turn into concrete legislation. “These incidents, these horrible, horrible incidents … are happening more and more frequently. And they will continue to happen more and more frequently until someone with...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), the top Democrat on the Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, chastised his Republican Judiciary colleagues for voting to make it easier for terrorists and convicted sex offenders of children to carry concealed firearms. In a Judiciary Committee markup today, Republicans rejected Nadler’s two amendments to the GOP-sponsored H.R. 822, the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2011. Seventeen Republicans voted against Nadler’s first Amendment, which would prohibit convicted sex offenders of children from carrying concealed firearms in states which outlaw such conduct. Nineteen Republicans voted against Nadler’s second Amendment, which would prevent known...

    Dem lawmaker looks to kill the debt limitBy Peter Schroeder - 08/10/11 03:39 PM ET Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) wants to do away with the debt limit, and will introduce a bill to do just that. Calling the debt limit “truly arbitrary” while blasting Republicans for playing a “dangerous game of chicken” with it, the liberal congressman said Wednesday he was drafting a bill to eliminate it. "Let us abolish the debt ceiling, which has become a serious threat to our economic future and a pawn for Republicans intent on holding the economy hostage to impose their own extreme agenda,”...

    Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) argued at a news conference with the Congressional Out of Poverty Caucus that the United States does not currently have a budget crisis. "That’s the real crisis – the unemployment, not the deficit. We don’t have a deficit problem right now. In the long term, we have a deficit problem – we’ve got to get it under control but not right now," said Nadler at the Capitol on Wednesday. "Right now we’ve got to get unemployment under control. If we got unemployment down to 7 percent, down to 5 percent, which is what it was in...

    Tomorrow the Senate will hold the first hearing on The Respect for Marriage Act, which repeals the Defense of Marriage Act, thus granting to all lawfully married couples—including same-sex couples—to receive federal marriage benefits and protections if they are joined by a valid marriage in a state where such marriages are legal. “The president has long called for a legislative repeal of the so-called Defense of Marriage Act, which continues to have a real impact on the lives of real people --our families, friends and neighbors,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said at today’s press briefing. “He is proud...

He also said that a similar bill is being introduced in the Senate by Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.). The prospects of the bill passing...

    NY Post ^ | Editorial
    Agroup of hard-left Democrats, led by Manhattan Rep. Jerry Nadler, is questioning the constitutionality of US military strikes in Libya. They may have a point. We're not under any illusions that Nadler & Co. are demonstrating anything but their reflexive antipathy to any display of US military force. But certainly it is fair to ask just what Team Obama is up to. Two weeks ago, the president said Col. Khadafy "must go." Over the weekend, he said Khadafy's removal was definitely not the mission's objective. Then, in Chile yesterday, the president said again that Khadafy "needs to go" -- that...
