    - Remember, if Democrats see a Republican member of congress performing effectively, the first thing they do is demonize him.: House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes continues to be the target of a focused demonization campaign by the Democrats and their agents in the fake news media, to the point now where Democrats on the committee are now refusing to participate in hearings, and even to read the intelligence they have been provided which demonstrates that the Trump Transition Team was indeed under surveillance by the Obama Administration. Saul Alinsky would be proud.

    Rep. Trey Gowdy stood by his colleague, Chairman Devin Nunes, even after Democrats like Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer have demanded his resignation due to uncertainty over whether he can continue to serve as an impartial arbiter. Speaking to Fox News’s Martha McCallum, Gowdy said Nunes hasn’t done anything wrong in his efforts to investigate allegations that the previous administration spied on the Trump campaign. “I just love it when Senator Schumer gives Republicans advice on what we ought to do,” Gowdy said. “Devin is doing exactly what the chairman ought to do. When you have a source that has...

    Amid Democratic opposition, Republican leaders are retreating from President Donald Trump’s very popular campaign promise to build a border fence to block illegal immigration, drug smugglers, and criminals. A top GOP leader, Sen. Roy Blunt, told reporters on Tuesday that GOP leaders do not want to include Trump’s spending for the border wall in the spring budget, which is due by April 28. “All of the committees, the leaderships of the House and Senate, are working together to try to finalize the rest of the FY17 [budget spending] bill,” he added. “My guess is that comes together better without the...

    Redstate ^ | 1/10/16 | Dan McLaughlin
    While Donald Trump won't be the GOP nominee, reclaiming the party from Trump still requires that we contemplate what a Trump nomination and even possibly a Trump presidency would look like. The picture isn't a pretty one. One of the under appreciated aspects is how any electoral success by Trump in the primaries and potentially the general election could spawn a bonanza for the GOP's much-despised consultant class, at the expense of the party's ability to field principled and/or successful statewide and national candidates. The reason for this is fairly straightforward: Trump is the avatar of the clueless-rich-guy style of...

    Amy Schumer‘s new movie Trainwreck draws heavily from her own life, but there’s one embarrassing incident that didn’t make it to the big screen: her arrest for grand larceny shoplifting! Schumer has previously admitted that she had sticky fingers well into her adult years. “It was just all from, like, department stores,” she told Rolling Stone last year. “I guess the impressive part was that I would return it for cash, and the most that I’d ever made was probably around $1,000. But I did it a lot.” When she was 21, however, her bad habit caught up to her,...

This is a knife fight for the future of the country Whether you like to refer to it as “The Nuclear Option,” the “rule change,” or “The Reid Option,” know this: Rumors of its usage for the Neil Gorsuch appointment are everywhere. You’ll recall that, back in January, Chuck Schumer said “If they don’t appoint somebody good, we’re going to oppose them tooth and nail.” Then, just a few sentences later, he admitted that there really was no judge that Trump would nominate who Democrats could back. He basically promised endless filibuster in a doomed effort to...

    Supreme Court: After Judge Neil Gorsuch spent 20 hours demonstrating that he is abundantly qualified to be a Supreme Court Justice, Democrats announced plans to filibuster his nomination. Good luck with that. By all accounts, Gorsuch put in a stellar performance in his confirmation hearing. Even the New York Times conceded that "if Democrats harbored any hope of raising doubts about Judge Gorsuch among Republicans, they came nowhere close." But as soon as the hearing ended, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer announced that he was going to filibuster the nomination anyway. Gorsuch, Schumer said, "was groomed by the Federalist Society...

If you listen to the media, Republicans will have to use the "nuclear option" to confirm Gorsuch with 51 votes. But the media, as usual, misses the point: Harry Reid already pushed the button and the Senate is a nuclear wasteland.

    Democrats may be ready to throw in the towel in opposing the nomination of Neil Gorsuch to be associate justice of the Supreme Court.  According to Politico, several sources are reporting that a group of Democrat senators may be willing to allow the Gorsuch confirmation to go through on the Senate floor in exchange for a pledge from Republicans not to get rid of the filibuster.  Their thinking is that if President Trump has another opportunity to name a Supreme Court justice, they want the option of blocking any nominee. Another vacancy would be far more consequential, as it...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The top Senate Democrat said Thursday he will oppose President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee and lead a filibuster of the choice, setting up a politically charged showdown with Republicans with far-reaching implications for future judicial nominees. New York Sen. Chuck Schumer criticized Judge Neil Gorsuch, saying he “almost instinctively favors the powerful over the weak” and would not serve as a check on Trump or be a mainstream justice. “I have concluded that I cannot support Neil Gorsuch’s nomination,” Schumer said on the Senate floor. “My vote will be no and I urge my colleagues to...

    Maskirovka is the Russian use of deception to confuse, mislead and camouflage oneself from the enemy, and is employed at all levels from tactical operations in war to global, strategic developments. Once upon a time senior members of the US government created a Russian fairy tale. It is nothing more than a total fabrication, a spider’s web of lies that continues to occupy the news cycle, waste tax payer dollars and threaten the Presidency of Donald, J. Trump. In fact, it may very well be labeled the greatest story ever told – that President Trump, members of his cabinet and...

Democrats have struggled to come up with a cohesive strategy on how to handle the vote to confirm Neil Gorsuch, whom Trump picked in January to fill Justice Antonin Scalia’s vacant seat on the high court. On Monday, FBI Director James Comey confirmed in his testimony to Congress that his agency is investigating ties between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. “There is a cloud now...

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., last Wednesday dragged out his feeble effort to block Neil Gorsuch's confirmation to the Supreme Court. Ahead of today's confirmation hearing, he trotted out three people, representing supposed "victims" of Gorsuch's jurisprudence. He hoped to demonstrate that Gorsuch is hostile toward workers and cancer patients, and takes the side of "the powerful" and corporations against the "powerless" little guy. Never mind that in all three cases, one of which was decided unanimously by a three judge panel that included one of former President Bill Clinton's appointees, Gorsuch scrupulously applied the text of the laws...

New York Senator Charles Schumer was instrumental in getting Bharara appointed to that position and in return was asked from time to time to do favors for the senator and his allies. Up until recently, President Trump had no idea what was really going on. Once President Trump’s staff understood the quid pro quo, they had no choice but to ask for Bharara’s resignation.

    Russian-owned Lukoil Oil Co acquired Getty Petroleum and its 1,300 US gasoline stations in November 2000, and the Manhattan station is one of about 150 in the US Northeast that Lukoil will rebrand over the next two years. Bright red Lukoil flags fluttered and US and Russian security men in dark suits held photographers and reporters at bay as Senator Charles Schumer, a New York Democrat, greeted Putin at the curb of the full-service station, then accompanied him inside where bills are paid and beverages and snacks are sold.

    After being denied a visa for entry into the United States last month, Tanveer Hussain knew just where to turn.The obliging offices of U.S. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and fellow Democrat Senator Kirsten Gillibrand reached out to the embassy in New Delhi, India, and helped Hussain reapply for a visa to enter the U.S. to compete in the World Snowshoe Championship.Hussain is now charged with first-degree sexual abuse, a felony, and endangering the welfare of a child, a misdemeanor, after Hussain was allegedly “engaging in a passionate kiss” with a 12-year-old girl and touched her in an “intimate area.”Life...

    Full Title***************************************************Muslim who claimed visa denied by Trump ban, who Schumer got into US, arrested for sexual assault of 12-year-old girl************************************************************* The Qur’an teaches that Infidel women can be lawfully taken for sexual use (cf. its allowance for a man to take “captives of the right hand,” 4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30). The Qur’an says: “O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.” (33:59) The...

    A snowshoe racer from India whose entry into the U.S. to compete was made possible by Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer was being held Friday in a New York jail on a sex charge. The U.S. embassy in New Delhi last month rejected Tanveer Hussain’s application for a visa so he could compete in the World Snowshoe Championship in upstate. Local officials then intervened on Hussain’s behalf, appealing for help to the offices of Schumer and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y. Their offices reached out to the New Delhi embassy, which allowed Hussain to reapply for a visa and granted that...
  • All 100 Senators Contacted Russian Government This Week

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions found himself at the center of controversy this week because he answered a question about the Trump campaign’s contacts with the Russian government without talking about his contacts as a United States Senator. The assumption made by the media, the Democrats, and even some Republicans was that even routine contact with the Russian government is burdened by suspicion of collusion. Not since the McCarthy era have suspicions reached such levels. But if Sessions ought to resign, perhaps the entire Senate should quit. Because on Monday — two days before the Washington Post broke the highly scandalous...

    Where’s the outrage? Democrat Senate Minority leader Chuck Schumer continues to push the Russia conspiracy. But it was Schumer who met with Putin in New York City – not Trump. The picture above was taken in 2003 as Russian President Vladimir Putin, right, enjoys a Krispy Kreme doughnut and coffee with Senator Charles Schumer from New York as Putin visits the first New York gas station of the Russian company Lukoil. The hysteria over Trump administration officials talking — or not talking — with Russia needs to end. It’s getting in the way of putting America back on track. NTK...
  • Senators Charles Schumer and Elizabeth Warren Should Immediately Resign (Vanity)

    Sign my petition: Senators Charles Schumer and Elizabeth Warren should immediately resign from the U.S. Senate for failing to uphold Article 3, Section 2 of the United States Constitution, which they both swore to uphold, by trying to convict Attorney General Jeff Sessions in the court of public opinion rather than a court of law, for presuming his guilt before standing trial and for extreme prejudice.

    After then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch confirmed she met with former President Bill Clinton on a plane last June, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) dismissed calls for an independent prosecutor to take over the Hillary Clinton email investigation. Today, however, Schumer called for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign and demanded a special prosecutor because of a report Sessions had met with the Russian Ambassador in 2016, something he did not disclose during his confirmation hearings. Sessions denies the report and says he “never met with any Russian officials to discuss the issues of the (Trump presidential) campaign.” […] “She’s an honorable...
