    Friday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said Democrats were running “neck and neck” to win the majority in the Senate in the midterms. Schumer said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) recent comments on health care and social programs are a “game changer.” When asked what the Democrats message is, Schumer said, “Very simple. First and foremost, better health care at lower cost. it’s the number one issue in America.” He continued, “Let me just say this. Mitch McConnell gave us a gift in the last three days. He showed who the Republican Party really...

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) said Friday there is too much "political correctness" in the United States these days, although he tagged both sides of the aisle as being to blame. . . "I think there is too much political correctness in this country, but I think health care is far and away the dominant issue," Schumer said. "There's a lot of political correctness on both sides all the time, and it's not the biggest issue, not even close. Biggest issue with independents? Health care."

    The despicable treatment now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh received at his Senate confirmation hearing proves conclusively that the Democratic Party is not the party of women – it is the party of exploiting women for political gain. In their eagerness to pander to women by saying absolutely anything that might win their votes, Democrats were even willing to throw out the centuries-old concept that is the foundation of our legal system: the presumption that we are all innocent until proven guilty. Democrats insisted that women accusing Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct should automatically be believed with absolutely zero evidence to back...

    Michael Kelly, the legendary journalist who died covering the invasion of Iraq in 2003, once wrote that the “animating impulse” of modern liberalism was to “marginalize itself and then enjoy its own company. And to make itself as unattractive to as many as possible.” “If it were a person,” he added, “it would pierce its tongue.” [snip] t pierced its tongue on CNN this week, when Hillary Clinton told Christiane Amanpour that “you cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about.” And when former Attorney General Eric Holder said...

    Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) on Tuesday accused Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.) of being behind the leak of an explosive letter that almost derailed Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court. Cotton and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) have called for an investigation into how a letter from Christine Blasey Ford alleging that Kavanaugh attempted to sexually assault her in high school was made public, despite Ford’s wishes. “I believe the Schumer political operation was behind this from the very beginning,” Cotton told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt in an interview Tuesday. A spokesman for Schumer dismissed the charge as...

    Democratic leaders consoled themselves from their failure to stop Brett Kavanaugh from assuming a seat on the Supreme Court Monday by reminding the nation that although they lost the SCOTUS seat, they were able to keep their dignity. As liberal protesters banged on the doors of the Supreme Court and attempted to claw them open, Senate Democrats calmed their constituents by pointing out that they were able to be the bigger person in all this. "At very least, we didn't drag our political process to new depths and make ourselves look like petulant children," said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.) challenged Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) on Sunday to name one person from President Donald Trump's list of potential Supreme Court justices that he finds acceptable. "This is a list that was compiled in November, but he actually put it out during the campaign," Graham told "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace, as he held up the list. "Twenty something people on this list, asking Chuck Schumer, name five, name three, name one that would be okay with you." Schumer and fellow Democrats tried to pressure Trump and Republicans to withdraw then Supreme...

    A New York Democrat in line to take up the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee said he is planning to open an investigation into Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh if his party wins back the House after midterms. . . “It is not something we are eager to do,” Nadler said. “But the Senate having failed to do its proper constitutionally mandated job of advice and consent, we are going to have to do something to provide a check and balance, to protect the rule of law and to protect the legitimacy of one of our most important institutions.”

    Congratulations to the New Democratic Socialists: you’ve managed to transform what was once just disgraceful political Kabuki into the far more repulsive theatre of the absurd. The Free Dictionary - noun -  A form of drama that emphasizes the absurdity of human existence by employing disjointed, repetitious, and meaningless dialogue, purposeless and confusing situations, and plots that lack realistic or logical development. Actress Amy Schumer and model-actress Emily Ratajkowski pose for press before volunteering to be arrested at the Capital anti-Kavanaugh protest…and then tweeting about it to their fans. Still not absurd enough? How about this - blowback from the...

    Top Republicans have drawn their line in the sand. They stand behind Judge Brett Kavanaugh and hope he’s confirmed this weekend. The Kavanaugh nomination has been engulfed in chaos and downright nastiness, as sexual misconduct allegations, all of which are without evidence or corroborating witnesses, were hurled at the judge at the last minute. There’s been a weeklong delay in the final vote to ensure the bureau could review these allegations. At a press conference, Senate Majority Mitch McConnell said that the recent release of the FBI report did not corroborate any of the sexual misconduct allegations against Judge Brett...

Having received a thorough briefing on the documents, those fears have been realized.”

    Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said on Monday that the FBI should brief the Senate before lawmakers take a final vote on Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination. Schumer said that regardless of a senator's position on Kavanaugh, the country benefits if the FBI investigation is viewed as " fair, clean and not constrained particularly by partisan means." "For that reason, we hope the FBI will be available to brief the Senate on the results of the investigation before a final floor vote," Schumer said from the Senate floor. Spokesmen for Schumer didn't immediately respond to a request for comment...
