    Democratic New Hampshire Sen. Jeanne Shaheen suggested Tuesday morning that Russia is to blame for the illegal immigrant protesters who derailed House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s community event on Monday. Video from the protest shows the crowd of pro-amnesty activists surrounding Pelosi and shouting her down, while accusing her of being insufficiently pro-immigrant. When asked why the activists were targeting Pelosi, who has been working with President Trump to try to strike a deal on DACA, Shaheen struggled to give an answer. [SNIP] When pressed repeatedly on whether Pelosi’s collaboration with Trump on DACA, which has angered left-wing activists, led...

    St. Louis Review ^ | August 17, 2017 | Jennifer Brinker
    Bishop Robert J. Shaheen, the first Maronite priest to be ordained in the United States and a priest and bishop in St. Louis for a half-century, died Aug. 9. Bishop Shaheen, who celebrated his 80th birthday in June, was the second bishop of the Eparchy of Our Lady of Lebanon of Los Angeles, headquartered in St. Louis. He retired in 2013. A celebration of the Divine Liturgy (funeral) was held Aug. 16 at St. Raymond Maronite Cathedral in St. Louis. He will be buried Monday, Aug. 21, from St. Anthony Maronite Church in his hometown of Danbury, Conn. "We pray...

    Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) on Friday said Hillary Clinton's paid speeches to Wall Street firms such as Goldman Sachs are "in the past" and not worth delving into. "The fact is that's in the past," she said on MSNBC when asked about Clinton's past speeches to the banking firm. "They're done, so it doesn't matter whether or not you support that or not," Shaheen said. "[It is] just as Bernie's socialism - he claims - is in the past," she added of Clinton's chief rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, Bernie Sanders. "The question is what do voters want to...

    Union Leader ^ | March 21. 2015
    U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen shamed herself with a vote that no one in New Hampshire should ever forget. That day, to her eternal discredit, she voted against a bill to help sex trafficking victims - on the order of her biggest campaign donor. The bill was the Justice for Victims of Sex Trafficking Act. Among its bipartisan list of cosponsors are Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte and Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. The bill would create a sex trafficking victim assistance fund, financed by revenue from criminal fines. Just before the bill was to come up for a vote, the abortion...

    In Last Tuesday’s win over Chris McDaniel, Senator Thad Cochran engaged in all manner of political chicanery and racial subterfuge. In a scheme concocted Haley Barbour, the Cochran campaign accused Chris McDaniel and the Tea Party of plotting to disenfranchise African-Americans. When asked to comment about Team Cochran’s unethical and borderline illegal tactics– NH GOP Senate candidate Scott Brown giggled demonically…. “I know you’re not gonna like it, but…I don’t really care about what happened in Mississippi.

    Democratic New Hampshire Sen. Jeanne Shaheen was principally involved in a plot with Lois Lerner and President Barack Obama’s political appointee at the IRS to lead a program of harassment against conservative nonprofit groups during the 2012 election, according to letters exclusively obtained by The Daily Caller. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) did not want to publicly release 2012 correspondences exchanged between the IRS and Jeanne Shaheen at her personal Washington office: the agency delayed releasing the information to a major conservative super PAC multiple times, even threatening to see the super PAC in court, according to emails.

    ... Shaheen, when asked by Breitbart News about a recent study from the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) that found 71 percent of all New Hampshire jobs since 2000 have gone to both legal and illegal aliens rather than New Hampshire citizens, ducked for cover. “My understanding is that’s a study sponsored by a right-wing organization,” she replied. When Breitbart News noted that the study is based on data from the U.S. Census Bureau and other government sources—and includes no data from non-governmental sources—her communications director Harrell Kirsten abruptly called an end to the press conference inside the local Democratic...

    MANCHESTER, New Hampshire — A new high-powered ad spot—and hefty buy behind it—aims to finish off incumbent Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) and help former Sen. Scott Brown across the finish line. The ad comes from Ending Spending Action Fund, which is spending approximately $1.25 million in the final days pushing this message via television, radio, Internet, forthcoming print advertisements, and direct mail. That’s in addition to an existing $601,000 buy the group is already running in local television markets, meaning the group is up with more than $1.85 million backing Brown in the final week. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SaAteJWDNI4 The television ad,...

    Brown is up 48.3 percent to Shaheen’s 46.8 percent in the poll of 1,132 likely voters statewide. The poll was conducted on Oct. 24, and has a margin of error of 2.91 percent. Dr. Wayne Lesperance, New England College's director of the Center for Civic Engagement, attributed Brown’s success to narrowing Shaheen’s lead among women voters. “A 1.5 percent margin is incredibly narrow and makes this race a statistical dead heat. Brown’s recent success comes from narrowing the lead Shaheen had with women to just under 5 percent,” Lesperance said. Shaheen has attempted to reignite the “war on women” rhetoric...

    If there's one person in New Hampshire less popular than President Barack Obama, it's Scott Brown. But that might not matter as he tries to unseat Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen in his new home state, by linking her to Obama, whose favorability and job approval remain at all-time lows. "It's really not a matter of either candidate's popularity. It's a matter of President Obama's popularity," said Andrew Smith, director of the University of New Hampshire Survey Center. People don't pay much attention to the particulars of midterm election politics, he added. "Their sense of politics is what's going on with...

    Democratic New Hampshire Sen. Jeanne Shaheen was jeered with cries of “Rude!” Sunday after she interrupted her Republican opponent Scott Brown’s closing debate remarks to make a statement about the Koch Brothers. After Brown asserted that he was endorsed by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Shaheen butted in to call the Chamber a “Koch-funded organization.” Members in the crowd yelled “rude” at her. Brown received a round of applause moments later for criticizing Shaheen’s lack of decorum.

Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) said it doesn’t make sense and Obama is “exactly where he needs to be” — in Washington. “We have a lot going on,” Shaheen said during an hourlong debate with Republican Scott Brown at NH1’s studio in Concord, which was broadcast live on WBIN-TV and was co-sponsored by CNN. “I don’t think it makes sense for the president to come to New Hampshire right now.” Shaheen doesn’t have a shortage of star power coming to...

    The U.S. Senate candidates sparred in their first televised debate Tuesday as part of a cliff-hanger of a race that could shift the balance of power in Washington. Democratic incumbent Jeanne Shaheen and Republican Scott Brown debated energy, Ebola, immigration, jobs and the economy, national security and health care. They were first asked to share their views of the U.S. response to the threat of Ebola. Brown said the U.S. needs a travel ban. "I'm thankful that Senator Shaheen broke with President Obama in that regard" and decided to support a travel ban, he said.

    One reporter’s opinion isn’t the end-all, be-all of political analysis. But as a respected, Boston-based reporter, Andy Hiller’s contention that Brown won the debate last night is worth listening to nonetheless. “Shaheen lost the debate because she had to spend so much time on the defensive, explaining the president’s policies on Ebola, Obamacare, ISIS and immigration,” he said. “She was much more effective in the second half when she directly challenged Brown.” “But Brown won,” he continued. “He never looked uncomfortable, he has cable network level communication skills, and in this debate the issues were on his side. He wasn’t...

  • Scott Brown’s very bad omen: What his dopey campaign says about Democrats’ prospects

    As if Democrats needed anything else to worry about, there is the New Hampshire situation. Former naked Senate person Scott Brown enjoyed being a senator. What’s not to like? You get to work in the World’s Greatest Deliberative Body and deliberate until the cows come home. Then he lost a reelection bid to Elizabeth Warren in 2012 and couldn’t be a senator anymore. So he moved to New Hampshire and said, sure, this is good enough, I’ll be a senator from here. New Hampshire is a blue state — redder than some other New England states, sure — and his...
