    Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) clapped in response to President Donald Trump during the State of the Union Tuesday when he touted America’s robust economy. Sen. Sinema stood up and clapped when President Trump touted the economic boom that America has experienced since Trump first took office. Other Democrats, including freshman swing district Democrats Reps. Max Rose (D-NY) and Elissa Slotkin (D-MI), offered polite “golf claps,” while most Democrats remained quiet.

    Three moderate Democrat senators — Joe Manchin (WV), Doug Jones (AL), and Kyrsten Sinema (AZ) —may ultimately vote to acquit President Donald Trump in the upper chamber’s impeachment trial, according to a new report. At least one of the senators have signaled that they could vote in favor of only one impeachment article — the abuse of power — but oppose obstruction of Congress.

    Three moderate Democrat senators — Joe Manchin (WV), Doug Jones (AL), and Kyrsten Sinema (AZ) —may ultimately vote to acquit President Donald Trump in the upper chamber’s impeachment trial, according to a new report. At least one of the senators have signaled that they could vote in favor of only one impeachment article — the abuse of power — but oppose obstruction of Congress. In an interview with Politico this week, Manchin said he will only support one of the articles if he “can explain one and not the other.” The West Virginia Democrat, who has yet to decide...

    Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) said Saturday it is “certainly possible” some Senate Democrats will vote to acquit President Donald Trump when the Senate impeachment trial concludes. The Connecticut Democrat said that the Senate Democrat conference will likely vote for additional witnesses; however, he added that he cannot guarantee all Democrats will vote to convict the president. Sen. Murphy said Saturday morning: I don’t have any reason to think there are Democrats that aren’t with us on procedural votes. It’s certainly possible there are Democrats that are going to vote no on one of the articles, two of the articles. And...
  • MAJOR BACKFIRE: Democrats REVOLT – Schiff And Pelosi Are Panicking

    The Democratic-controlled House of Representatives committed political suicide two weeks ago and passed both articles of impeachment — obstruction of Congress and abuse of power — against President Donald Trump. After leading the most partisan impeachment inquiry in modern American history, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is refusing to send the articles of impeachment over to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell because she says Republicans won’t hold a “fair” trial. But maybe Pelosi is refusing to send the articles to the upper chamber because she knows several Senate Democrats will defect and vote against the sham charges levied against the president....

    WASHINGTON—Parents of infants under 1 year of age or adopted children of any age could receive in advance up to $5,000 of their child tax credit to help cover expenses under a bipartisan bill introduced Dec. 4. The “Advancing Support for Working Families Act” was unveiled during a joint Capitol Hill news conference by Sens. Bill Cassidy (R-La.), Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.), and Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.), as well as Reps. Colin Allred (D-Texas) and Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.). .... “This does not raise taxes, and it does not have mandates. We give options to the parents,” Cassidy said during the news...

    The Democrat Party is holding a vote to censure Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema because they perceive her moderate stances and voting habits as too friendly towards President Donald Trump. The liberal senator is by no means a closet Republican, in fact, she has opposed Trump 81 percent of the time — but that is not good enough for her far-left party peers. “Here’s the thing: We really support Kyrsten Sinema, we want her to succeed, we want her to be the best senator in the country,” Dan O’Neal, state coordinator for Progressive Democrats of America, told the Arizona Republic. “But...

    Yeah, yeah, I know: “They had two Democratic senators when McCain and Flake were there.” Har dee har. The dirty little secret about Maverick and Flake is that they almost always voted with Trump and McConnell. There was one enormous exception to that rule, when McCain voted no on ObamaCare repeal, but on most legislative matters and judicial confirmations they were on the team. Kyrsten Sinema and Mark Kelly won’t be. And if you believe this new poll from OH Predictive Insights, those are the two people who’ll be representing Arizona in the Senate in 2021. Retired astronaut Mark Kelly...

    (Audio Link at Source)President Trump signed Sen. Kyrsten Sinema's bill July 25. The proposal closes a loophole in federal law that allowed some veterans to get caught up in predatory home refinance deals. The problem was certain VA loans could be easily churned, or resold. The new law prevents that from happening before a cooling-off period. "So veterans won't get stuck with these refinancing fees over and over again," said Sinema.

    Freshman Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., was one of a number of Democrats to join Republican colleagues this week who called for the implementation of a pilot program that would work to quickly identify and deport migrants at the border who are judged not to have a valid asylum claim. Sinema, along with Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., and Doug Jones, D-Ala., joined Republicans in writing to President Trump urging the implementation of Operation Safe Return -- a Department of Homeland Security pilot program that that would focus on quickly identifying, processing and returning family units who do not have valid asylum...

    The senators who are most likely to reject President Trump's nominees are the very ones who want to challenge him in 2020. The Hill's review of two-and-a-half years of vote totals shows Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) voted against more Trump nominees than any other senator. At the same time, Republicans voted virtually in lock step for Trump's nominees; the average GOP senator backed 99 percent of his picks, and the one who went rogue most often -- Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) -- still voted to confirm 93 percent of his nominees. Trump's picks...

    Beto O’Rourke just keeps running—not only toward the 2020 presidential race, but also by lacing up and pounding the pavement as a way to connect with the people. Back in March, the 2020 presidential hopeful ran a St. Patrick’s Day-themed 5K while campaigning in the Hawkeye state, finishing in 24:29, which earned him a third-place finish in his age group. This past week, he’s been running to raise awareness for LGBTQ+ issues. On Saturday, June 8, the 46-year-old ran in the 2019 Pride Fun Run 5K, which was part of the Pride Fest Weekend held in Des Moines, Iowa. He...

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) joked about his multiple homes during a hearing Wednesday in arguing against a provision that would tie lawmaker pay to Congress's ability to pass a budget. The former Massachusetts governor and 2012 GOP presidential nominee argued that the “No Budget, No Pay” proposal would not affect him personally, but could hurt lower-income legislators. When he noted that he personally would not be affected, Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.), who supports the proposal and offered an amendment at the hearing, joked, “We’re all just moving into your house.” “You’re welcome,” Romney quipped. “Which one?”

    Sens. Mike Braun (R-Ind.) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) introduced a bill Monday aiming to tackle the problem of teacher debt. The bill, the Consider Teachers Act of 2019, amends the TEACH grant program to resolve problems where some of those grants were inadvertently converted into loans that must be paid back with interest. "The TEACH grant is an important program to incentivize teachers to serve in neglected communities, but 12 years of poor government management has turned these grants into groans for thousands of teachers," Braun said in a statement."To show our appreciation for America's great teachers, let's get off...

    Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., said this week that she does not support launching impeachment hearings against President Trump in the wake of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia report -- the latest wrinkle in left-wing Democrats’ plans to oust the president. The Arizona Republic asked Sinema, who won a tight race in the traditionally Republican state in November, whether she supported impeachment proceedings. “No,” she responded. When asked why, she said: “Everyone knows.” Sinema will receive a classified version of the report next week, and she said that she wants to “read all the information I can get before making a...

    Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claimed on Tuesday not a single Senate Democrat voted in favor of the Green New Deal because she asked them to vote “present.” “Because I encouraged them to vote present, along w/ others,” Ocasio-Cortez responded when Republican Wyoming Sen. John Barrasso asked her why Democrats ducked going on the Senate record in support of her radical anti-climate change resolution. The New York congresswoman’s response came only hours after the Senate voted 57-to-0 to kill the Green New Deal, which was introduced by Ocasio-Cortez and Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Ed Markey. Three Democrats voted against the...

    LUKE AIR FORCE BASE, Ariz. — Sen. Martha McSally (R-Ariz.) spoke with President Trump about the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Wednesday, after days of unprecedented attacks by a sitting president on a dead war hero. McSally, addressing reporters after a meeting with base commanders here Thursday, expanded on a tweet she sent Wednesday in which she called McCain a hero. The tweet did not mention Trump, and in her remarks Thursday she again refrained from criticizing the president. "I made it clear, I love John McCain. John McCain is an American hero. This state reveres John McCain, and...

    Charlotte Riley, who teaches history at the University of Southampton, penned an interesting op-ed in the New Statesmen last month where she literally suggested standing in the way of busy males on their morning commute to help resist perceived patriarchy in society. According to Riley, such tactics are necessary because males have naturally been raised to believe they have a “right to occupy space.” “The point is that men have been socialised, for their entire lives, to take up space. Men who would never express these thoughts out loud have nevertheless been brought up to believe that their right to...
