  • Exclusive Video - Waters: Netanyahu Lying, Israel Won't Attack Iran Alone

    Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) told a gathering of anti-war activists in Los Angeles on March 12 that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was misleading the public about Israel’s willingness to confront Iran alone, and that he had privately assured President Barack Obama that Israel would not go to war without U.S. backing. The week before, Netanyahu had used a visit to Washington to convey the message that Israel was prepared to act alone if necessary. That message was necessary, given the Obama administration's record of wavering on Iran, and its public attempts to dissuade Israel

    ALBANY, September 15, 2011 ( - David Weprin, a Democrat in the New York State Assembly who supported New York’s recent gay “marriage” law, has lost a bid for a U.S. congressional seat, giving the seat to a Republican for the first time in 88 years.  Both traditional marriage supporters and local sources say that the marriage vote was critical to Weprin’s downfall in the heavily Orthodox Jewish district, despite himself being an Orthodox Jew. The special election on Tuesday was held to replace former Democratic U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner, representing New York’s 9th District, following his resignation in June...

    The heavily Democratic NY-9 district  had never sent a Republican to the House... In what will come as a hideous shock to an ever-more-embattled White House, citizen-patriot Bob Turner -a NY businessman and political novice- has pulled off what could be called the 'upset of the century' in defeating NY Assemblyman Dave Weprin in yesterday's special election... but it's been more that one century that this seat has been all-but owned by the Democrats.

    Why Republicans are optimistic and Democrats are worried.The week before the special election in New York’s 9th congressional district, the Democratic National Committee meeting in Chicago focused on three main areas of concern that required improved “messaging” for the 2012 campaign: jobs, health care, and Jewish voters — an odd list to be sure. The Obama campaign hired the former long-time head of the National Jewish Democratic Council, Ira Forman, to help with this third task. A poll out last week from Gallup suggested that Obama’s approval level in the Jewish community is now 55%, down 5% from the prior...

    Democrat David Weprin said yesterday that President Obama’s sagging popularity among Queens and Brooklyn voters cost him the election for ex-Rep. Anthony Weiner’s congressional seat. In a stunning upset, Weprin was trounced by Republican Bob Turner, whose campaign had tied him to the president. “The message of the campaign was ‘Send Obama a message,’ ” said Weprin, a Queens state assemblyman. “I think the problem was that he’s the president and people are frustrated, and it’s just natural to take it out on the top guy -- or the top guy’s party. “As much as I tried to make it...

    Well, not in so many words. But he might as well have, that's what he meant. Upset by the stunning loss of his Dem boy in NY-9 to Republican Bob Turner, here's what that sleazeball Waxman (D-Lala Land) had to say about his fellow Jews [h/t Red State]: There are Jews who are trending toward the Republican Party, some of it because of their misunderstanding of Obama’s policies in the Middle East, and some of it, quite frankly, for economic reasons. They feel they want to protect their wealth, which is why a lot of well-off voters vote for Republicans.” Get...

    Democrats working to explain the loss of a ‘safe’ congressional seat in this week’s special election to replace disgraced New York Rep. Anthony Weiner have come up with some startling conclusions. California Democratic Rep. Henry Waxman, a prominent Jewish congressman, explained that some Jews are selecting not to vote for Democrats because “they want to protect their wealth, which is why a lot of well-off voters vote for Republicans.” One of the more common narratives emerging after the election in New York’s 9th Congressional District is that the district’s large Jewish population was alienated by President Obama’s policies on Israel,...

    A reader passes this along. It looks very similar to one that Jane Corwin filed in a recent Upstate Congressional special election. Update: So I got off the phone with the lawyer who filed this case, and they’re impounding the non-regular ballots (i.e. absentee & provisional) because of “gross incompetence” on behalf of the Board of Elections, citing “absentee ballots being mailed to dead people and people who did not request them.”

    Some Democrats are arguing that the NY-9 race doesn’t mean anything for Obama’s 2012 chances. But according to David Weprin, the Democratic candidate who lost the NY-9 race to Republican Bob Turner, Obama has “major problems” in New York. Weprin blamed Obama’s unpopularity and Israel issues for his failed bid during an interview with Washington Jewish Week’s Adam Kredo: My first question for Weprin was, “What happened?” His reply: “The media, my opponent somewhat successfully made it a referendum on Obama. I don’t know if it was just Israel, but Israel certainly was a major part of it.” Whether real...

    The outcome of any individual election to the United States House, even in a highly partisan era where Congressional elections have a relatively strong correlation with presidential voting and national trends, is going to be determined based on a combination of local and national factors. One congressional district’s outcome may diverge significantly from another’s – even if they seem similar on the surface — based on the quality of the candidates, the demographics of the region and issues highly pertinent to the district but not to the nation at large. Any one race may or may not be representative. There...

    This morning, John Fund was on WMAL-AM, the talk radio powerhouse in Washington D.C. He mentioned that nobody in Democratic circles is defending Obama anymore. Buyer’s remorse is everywhere. Essentially, only those actually working for the Administration or Democratic Party, trapped inside the Alamo, are defending the fort now. Anyone can guess when they might start turning the guns on each other, perhaps starting from Foggy Bottom. Fund thought there is a chance that a “committee” of senior Democrats might go to Obama in a few months and tell him it might be best not to run for reelection. Who...

    Late Tuesday night National Republican Congressional Committee chairman Pete Sessions painted the Republican win in the special election in Nevada’s 2nd Congressional District as a snapshot of the problems Democrats will face in 2012. “Democrats just saw their 2012 playbook fall apart as Nevada voters refused to buy Democrats’ Medicare scare tactics and misinformation campaigns,” Sessions wrote in a statement. “This election sends Democrats another warning that Democrats up and down the ballot next year cannot escape accountability for their failed economic policies.” Medicare policy was a major focus in the ad war between Democrat Kate Marshall and Republican Mark...

    Democratic party leaders insisted the loss wasn’t a harbinger of things to come. “It’s a very difficult district for Democrats,” said Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, noting its Democratic margins there tend to be the second lowest of all the districts in New York City. House Speaker John Boehner (R., Ohio), dismissed that idea. “This is a very seriously Democrat district,” Mr. Boehner said. “This is not a district that Republicans have any right to believe we could win.” Read the Wall Street Journal article for paid subscribers

    Was last night’s “stunning victory” for New York Rep.-elect Bob Turner over New York State Assemblyman David Weprin a tell-tale sign of Republicans’ future dominance over Democrats? Or just an anomaly? Some left-leaning commentators and others in the media are already downplaying the results. But on Laura Ingraham’s radio show Wednesday, National Review columnist Mark Steyn, author of “After America: Get Ready for Armageddon,” offered his own tongue-in-cheek explanation for Democratic excuse-makers: the reappearance of 1920s-era Republicans at the modern-day voting booth. “It’s tough turf for Democrats,” Steyn said, “because you know [Turner's district] was Republican as recently as in...

    Republicans won two House seats in a special election last night. One, in Nevada, had been a relatively safe district, and Republican Mark Amodei cruised to victory over Democrat Kate Marshall as expected. Also as predicted, Republican Bob Turner won a six-point victory over Democrat David Weprin in NY-09, a Congressional district in the heart of Democratic stronghold New York City. The margin of victory exactly matched polling leads for Turner from both Siena and Democratic pollster PPP in the final days before the vote.That doesn’t mean it wasn’t a surprise. The NY-09 seat has been in Democratic hands since,...

    This is a survey result that will undoubtedly thrill many Republicans… Republican Bob Turner is poised to pull a huge upset in the race to replace Anthony Weiner as the Congressman from New York’s 9th Congressional District.  He leads Democrat David Weprin 47-41 with Socialist Workers candidate Christopher Hoeppner at 4% and 7% of voters remaining undecided. Turner’s winning in a heavily Democratic district for two reasons: a huge lead with independents and a large amount of crossover support.  He’s ahead by 32 points at 58-26 with voters unaffiliated with either major party.  And he’s winning 29% of the Democratic...

    New York’s 9th Congressional District isn’t the likeliest place for a national political referendum. Vice President Al Gore won it with 67 percent of the vote in 2000, and Barack Obama carried it by 11 percentage points eight years later. It has been held by a string of high-profile Democrats — including Sen. Chuck Schumer (N.Y.) and the late Geraldine Ferraro — for decades. And yet, the special election set for Tuesday in the Brooklyn and Queens areas between state Assemblyman David Weprin (D) and businessman Bob Turner (R) — a race occasioned by the scandal and subsequent resignation of...

    Red-faced House Democrats were forced to yank offensive images of a jet buzzing around lower Manhattan in a planned TV ad attacking GOP congressional candidate Bob Turner -- just as New Yorkers prepare to observe the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. In the 30-second ad, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee sought to rap Turner for a quip he made that he “never met a tax loophole I didn’t like.’’ But it was too clever by half. The ad shows a “Bob Turner for Congress’’ corporate jet approaching the lower Manhattan skyline -- an ominous image approaching the anniversary...

    With just four days to go until voters in New York's historically Democratic 9th Congressional District go to the polls, Republican candidate Bob Turner holds a six-point lead over Democrat David Weprin, according to a new Siena Research Institute survey released Friday. Among likely voters in the district, which comprises parts of Queens and Brooklyn, Turner (pictured) attracts 50 percent of the support while Weprin garners 44 percent. Six percent say they are undecided. The same poll taken a month ago showed Weprin with a six-point lead, indicating the race would be surprisingly close. Turner, who has received endorsements from...

    As disgraced Rep. Anthony Weiner, once a major player in New York City politics and a prominent Democratic Party attack dog, enters the X-rated dustbin of history, the question of who will replace him in the state's ninth congressional district now takes center stage. Normally, the only question regarding Gotham congressional races is how left-wing the Democratic victor will be. In anything now regarding Anthony Weiner, the circumstances are hardly normal. On its surface, NY9 is bedrock Democrat. A Republican has not represented any portion of it in decades—and Weiner's predecessor was none other than his mentor, Sen. Chuck Schumer....
