    Alex's largest donation this cycle was for $2 million to the Senate Majority PAC (SMP), a committee launched by former staffers of retired Nevada senator Harry Reid that is dedicated to electing and keeping Democrats in the Senate. SMP reports nearly $80 million in contributions this cycle, and Alex's $2 million donation makes him one of the top donors to the PAC, its filings show. The group has already dished out more than $30 million in independent expenditures this cycle backing Democrats. Alex added $33,900 to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee's coffers. Another $101,700 was given to the committee's headquarters...
  • Democrats' "Hail Satan" (Blakely-Ford) Pass to Derail Kavanaugh Vote Doomed to Failure

    In a last ditch desperate attempt to derail Judge Kavanaugh's appointment to the Supreme Court, democrats have sunk deep in the doo-doo. They risk ridicule and derision within their own party. Even democrats wearing 'coke bottle' glasses see through the pathetic charade orchestrated by the handlers of Christine Blasely. They have conjured up absurd allegations to destroy a very fine gentlemen's impeccable character, his family, and his judicial career. Democrats are both secretly and publicly ashamed of Diane Feinstein, the aged senator that tossed the 'Hail Mary' pass to destroy Judge Kavanaugh. They're wondering why an incredibly wealthy elderly senator...
  • Democrats Make Last-ditch Effort To Block Trump Declassification

    Leading congressional Democrats are looking to stall the process to release documents related to the Russia investigation, which President Donald Trump ordered declassified on Monday. Reps. Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff and Sens. Chuck Schumer and Mark Warner, sent a letter Tuesday asking Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, FBI Director Christopher Wray and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats to provide an “immediate briefing” to the Gang of Eight before declassifying and releasing the documents. The four Democrats expressed “profound alarm” at Trump’s order to declassify the records. Trump ordered the Justice Department and Office of the Director of National...

    Ever wonder why the democrats operate in lockstep, why not a single democrat has decried Diane Feinstein and her Judiciary colleagues' militant tactics? Because Chuck Schumer has repopulated the Senate with visceral far-leftists. Here's the rundown. Brown (OH) - 2006 Cardin (MD) - 2006 Casey (PA) - 2006 Gillibrand (NY) - 2006 Kaine (VA) - 2006 Klobuchar (MN) - 2006 McCaskill (MO) - 2006 Menendez (NJ) - 2006 Sanders (VT) - 2006 Tester (MT) - 2006 Bennett (CO) - 2008 Merkley (OR) - 2008 Shaheen (NH) - 2008 Udall (NM) - 2008 Warner (VA) - 2008 Blumenthal (CT) - 2010...

    Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer says Republicans on the Judiciary Committee can’t be trusted to conduct an impartial review of the allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Schumer says voting on Kavanaugh scheduled for this week must be delayed so these “serious and credible” allegations can be investigated by the FBI.

    Senate Minority Leader Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) warned on Sunday that Brett Kavanaugh will allow President Trump to "overreach" his authority if he is to be confirmed to the Supreme Court. In an interview with AM 970 The Answer in New York, Schumer told host John Catsimatidis that, of a list of 25 potential Supreme Court nominees, Kavanaugh was the one "most willing" to allow the president to overstep his authority. "[W]ith a president who seems to want to overreach in terms of his power, Kavanaugh, of the list of 25, was the one who is most willing to allow...

    The Democratic makeover is in full swing. **SNIP** Those tensions could come to a head if Pelosi struggles to be elected speaker. Even if she wins, it could be difficult for her to preside over a more liberal caucus. James, of the Collective PAC, said that's exactly the idea. "The status quo to me doesn't mean getting rid of people who have been in office a long time," she said. "It means you can't have the same mentality, you can't have the same goals. You can't have the same playbook. You've got to switch it up."

    Grant Woods, who is also a former Arizona attorney general, said in an interview that he has spoken to several Democratic senators about the idea, including Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (N.Y.). Woods supported Hillary Clinton’s campaign for president and said he has been troubled by Trump in recent years. McCain’s death has led him to consider “whether I need to step up at this point in time,” he said.

    Thirteen progressive groups have reportedly signed a letter criticizing Senate Minority Leader Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) over his plan to defeat Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination. The letter, signed by organizations including CREDO Mobile, Indivisible, Democracy for America, and Daily Kos, argues that Schumer is "failing" to rally all members of the Senate Democratic caucus, particularly red-state Democrats, to resist Kavanaugh, according to Politico. “Your job as Senate Democratic leader is to lead your caucus in complete opposition to Trump’s attempted Supreme Court takeover and to defend everyone threatened by a Trump Supreme Court,” the letter reads. “But unbelievably, nearly...

    Senate Democrats closed down the chamber floor Wednesday to protest the confirmation hearings of Judge Brett Kavanaugh. The hearings were able to continue, but only after the GOP agreed to quit floor business for the rest of the day. Under Senate rules, committees need consent from both sides of the aisle to meet into the afternoon when the floor is also in session. Consent is almost always granted...

    Politico ^ | September 4, 2018 | Borgess Everett and Elana Schor
    Hours before Brett Kavanaugh arrived for his Senate confirmation hearing on Tuesday, Chuck Schumer and frustrated fellow Democratic senators debated staging a mass walkout — or not showing up at all. For weeks, the party grappled with how to force the release of millions of pages of missing Kavanaugh documents after Republicans spurned their previous attempts. The discussions culminated during a Labor Day conference call: Senators weighed the drastic protest measures but opted against them, worried about what would come next and whether the fallout from a made-for-TV moment would undercut their efforts to defeat the nomination, according to multiple...

Chuck Schumer (D-NY) revealed Democrat plans for next year at a Labor Day parade on Monday when he, using a bullhorn, told a crowd member that he and Democrats intend to impeach President Donald Trump should they gain control of the Congress.The comments by Schumer are, to date, the most significant and open pledge that Democrats intend to impeach Trump on day one of a Democrat-controlled Congress. “When are you going to impeach Trump?” a man shouted as Schumer walked by, carrying a bullhorn.“The sooner the better!” the Senate minority leader fired back. “The sooner the...

    “The number of immigrants added to the labor force every year is of a magnitude not seen in this country for over a century,” one American president wrote back in 2006 – and it wasn’t Donald Trump. The excerpt is from Obama’s 2006 memoir “The Audacity of Hope,” and the full quote has gone viral after commentator Candace Owens posted it to her twitter. The rest of the quote is as follows: Re: Illegal Immigrants “…this huge influx of mostly low-skill workers provides some benefits to the economy as a whole —it also threatens to depress further the wages of...

    Democrats on Saturday slammed what they described as a “Friday night document massacre” after the White House withheld more than 100,000 pages of Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s records, citing presidential privilege. Former President George W. Bush’s attorney Bill Burck told the Senate Judiciary Committee in a letter Friday that it has mostly completed its work ahead of next week’s planned confirmation hearing. Kavanaugh, who has been tapped by President Trump to replace Anthony Kennedy on the nation’s highest court, served in the White House Counsel’s office during the Bush administration. The letter said that Bush told them to...

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said this weekend that he will introduce a resolution to rename the Senate's Russell Office Building for Sen. John McCain, who died on Saturday at his home in Arizona. McCain died 13 months after he was diagnosed with glioblastoma, a form of brain cancer. Schumer, D-New York, praised his colleague as an American patriot and said he would introduce the resolution “so that generations remember him." "As you go through life, you meet few truly great people," Schumer said in a statement. "John McCain was one of them. His dedication to his country and the...
