    Disgraced former state Sen. Hiram Monserrate won’t take no for an answer. The felon is running for office again — this time for a Democratic district leader’s post in East Elmhurst, Queens, the lowest rung on the ladder. Monserrate lost a comeback bid for a City Council seat last year when he was defeated by Francisco Moya. But he still received 44 percent of the vote in that contest and retains a loyal following on his East Elmhurst-Corona turf.

    Republican Sen. Ron Johnson (Ohio) said Thursday that “it’s way too early” to discuss supporting President Trump in 2020. “Chris, you know it’s way too early to be talking about the 2020 - ” Johnson told CNN’s “New Day” when asked if he will support Trump in a 2020 re-election bid. “No, it isn’t not to say that you support the guy who’s president, who’s the head of your party,” CNN anchor Chris Cuomo pushed back. Johnson argued that 2020 could be a different landscape and pointed to the November’s upcoming midterm elections. “It could be a completely different world...

    You make a good point, Kamala Harris. A society that doesn’t value children’s lives *is* sort of garbage, isn’t it? I’m glad we’re all on the same page here. You would think Harris would be at least minimally self-aware enough not to refer to “babies” when describing callousness towards children dying. That’s how little regard the left has for life in the womb.

    Chelsea Manning was turned back at the Canadian-U.S. border because she was convicted of espionage for passing information to Wikileaks, the former U.S. intelligence analyst said on Monday. Manning told Reuters via direct message on Twitter that she drove up to the Canadian border in Lacolle, Quebec, on Thursday evening, planning to vacation in Montreal and Vancouver. She said she was stopped at the border and detained overnight before being handed a report stating she was inadmissible “on grounds of serious criminality,” according to a picture of the report she posted online. The offenses Manning was convicted of under the...

    As we noted here previously, there were a few people in the media cautiously suggesting that while the #MeToo movement was sweeping away alleged sexual offenders in Congress this year, it might be an opportune time for the Democrats to relieve themselves of the embarrassment of having Bob Menendez hanging around. The New Jersey Democrat narrowly dodged a bullet when his corruption case ended in a mistrial, but that far from exonerated him. So if pressure from colleagues was enough to show Al Franken the door (assuming he actually leaves), might the same tactic work with Menendez? And more to...

    My own thoughts | 12/13/2017 | DoughtyOne
    As we all know by now, Judge Roy Moore wound up getting fewer votes than his opponent yesterday. A lot of people today are calling Moore a loser. On first appearances, not knowing the background to yesterday's election, that might seem reasoned. It isn't. Knowing what I know, I have a reaction I'm not seeing others have. I'm sorry to realize that. Judge Roy Moore deserves our thanks for putting his neck on the line, trying to carry the mantle of our ideals into the Senate of the United States. It was an honorable thing to do, and it was...

    BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – A racially charged campaign flyer sent to black residents in Alabama’s Senate race is provoking a social media backlash for Democratic nominee Doug Jones, who is scrambling to mobilize black voters against Republican Roy Moore ahead of Tuesday’s election. The flyer, which has been circulating on social media and reportedly came from the Jones campaign, shows a young black man with a skeptical look on his face. “Think if a black man went after high school girls anyone would try to make him a senator?” it reads. Multiple people who received it have posted photos of the...

    The Missouri Senator who said “I hope Trump is assassinated” is facing a major backlash from the Democrat party who believe that either she has really gone way too far, or are protecting their electoral chances for 2018. Leading Dems have said that “She will either resign, or we will make that decision for her.” Under the Missouri Constitution, there is a section that refers to penalties for lawmakers guilty of “contempt and disorderly conduct.” And this certainly falls under that category. But perhaps the worst aspect of this ever increasing omnishambles is that she steadfastly refuses to acknowledge that...

    Senator Alan Simpson (R-Wyoming) needs to get his facts straight about social security. You pay 6.5% as an employee, Your employer pays 6.5%. You pay 1.5% to Medicare, Total 14.5%. If you are self-employed you must pay the 14.5% yourself. How could he say, because senior citizens expect their social security and medicare benefits when they retire, they are greedy? “Alan Simpson, Senator from Wyoming, Co-Chair of Obama’s deficit commission, calls senior citizens the Greediest Generation as he compared “Social Security” to a Milk Cow with 310 million teats.”

    Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) blamed the non-stop talk about Russia for Jon Ossoff’s loss Tuesday in the Georgia special election in his appearance on MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe’. Senator Murphy appeared on MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe’ to talk about Jon Ossoff’s loss in Georgia’s 6th District and the future of the Democrat party. When asked if Democrats need to be more progressive or more moderate to win elections, Murphy responded, “I think the Democrats need to be hyper-focused on an economic message that tells people that the Republican party is all about the economic growth for millionaires and billionaires and the Democrat...

    As the Senate Judiciary Committee was hearing from witnesses for and against Judge Neil Gorsuch, his Supreme Court nomination was delivered a critical blow: Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) said he would join with other Democrats in filibustering Gorsuch — a move that would require at least 60 senators to vote to end debate on the nomination.

    The Washington Times ^ | 03/02/2017 | Jennifer Harper
    There was no press honeymoon for President Trump during his first month in office. A meticulous new study by the Media Research Center finds that 88 percent of the broadcast news coverage of Mr. Trump and his team was “hostile” during the first 30 days of office. The coverage was intense and plentiful. The study, which analyzed both tone and content for evening newscasts on ABC, NBC and CBS, found that the “Big Three” networks produced 16 hours of coverage on the new president and his staff. That is over half — 54 percent — of their total coverage for...
