Disclose Act Folds, Closed By Three Votes – Much Too Close!
There were fifty seven Democrat Senators who would have stolen your right to free speech. Senator Upchucky Schumer, one of the more detestable examples of a stinking, slimy breed, conspired with the equally onerous and creepy Russ Feingold to craft the Disclose Act, which has been inspired and supported by that sterling personality, Barack Hussein Obama. L-R: Schumer, Obama, Feingold. This piece of legislative legerdemain | Read More »
Time To Hit The Panic Button In Nevada
There may not be another incumbent in the country that we would rather see go down in 2010 than Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in Nevada. Unfortunately the latest Mason-Dixon poll has Republican nominee Sharron Angle trailing Sen. Reid by seven points in the Silver State.

This Week in Washington – April 26, 2010
As the Senate votes on setting up a permanent authority for the federal government to bailout Wall Street, the House is readying action to provide statehood to Puerto Rico.

Capitol Hill Police Victims of Congressional Arrogance
Okay, they are trying to bully the entire country, so this may not seem like such a big deal in the grand scheme of things. But, it’s a symptom of a much larger problem in the halls of Congress. Plus, it’s still really jerky, Better Than You ™ behavior. It’s also incredibly stupid ; the Hill cops are meant to protect them. From The Hill: | Read More »
The Nightmare of Dream Act III
While we are all distracted by the national debate around health care reform, there has been a growing momentum toward the next battle – and it’s going to be a doozy. If you thought the Dream Act II was dead, think again. Recently, President Obama hinted at what was coming down the pipe, and just in time for the mid-term elections if I might add. | Read More »
NY-SEN: Kudlow vs. Schumer?
I’ve suspected for some time now that the California Senate race against Barbara Boxer was basically the high-watermark Senate race for the GOP – that is, the toughest race that has a non-trivial chance to be winnable if everything breaks just right. But the recent withdrawal of Evan Bayh from his own re-election race in Indiana (not as “safe” a seat as Boxer’s, given Indiana’s | Read More »
What’s the Matter with the New York State GOP?
In the wake of Scott Brown’s upset win in Massachusetts, Blue-Chip GOP candidates are coming out of the woodwork around the country. But there seems to be little progress in dark blue New York – at least when it comes to statewide races. With a dearth of good candidates (so far), New York may be one state where Democrats dodge a Republican wave that seems | Read More »
A Stealth Campaign
In 2010 there are a few potentially competitive statewide races in New York. There is the US Senate race with former Blue Dog Democrat turned Obama party shill Kirstin Gillibrand which can be competitive with the right candidate (ex. George Pataki). There is the Governor’s race which could be competitive because of the incompetency of the incumbent Governor with nearly any candidate who can resonate | Read More »
NY POST: “It seems the state is to have no representation in the Senate whatsoever.”
Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand must go, (More evidence to the continuing saga.) From Wednesday’s New York Post: Jelly-brand dummies up Posted: December 23, 2009 What’s up with unelected Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand? She can’t protect New York from the ill effects of Obama Care, and then refuses even to talk about it. Gillibrand? Jelly-brand is more like it. Both Mayor Bloomberg and Gov. Paterson say | Read More »
Marvelous political party that you work for, Sen. Gillibrand.
(H/T: Instapundit) Very cognizant of the plight of the working class: …the notoriously chatty New York Democrat referred to a flight attendant as a “b[*]tch” after she ordered him to turn off his phone before takeoff. Schumer and his seatmate, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), were chatting on their phones before takeoff when an announcement indicated that it was time to turn off the phones. [snip] | Read More »
Sen. Schumer’s (D, NY) unsurprising tribunal reversal.
Everybody’s overthinking Chuck Schumer’s (D, NY) flip-flop from his 2001 stance on military tribunals: …those who commit acts of war against the United States, particularly those who have no color of citizenship, don’t deserve the same panoply of due process rights that American citizens receive. Should Osama bin Laden be captured alive—and I imagine most Americans hope he won’t be captured alive. But if he is, it is ludicrous to | Read More »
Schumer, Gillibrand, and the Wall Street payoffs.
