Yesterday’s Scandal, Today’s Mandate: Antis Embraces Operation Choke Point as Policy

Opinion U.S. Rep. Carolyn Maloney Fairfax, VA – -(Ammoland.com)- On Tuesday, U.S. Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) unabashedly embraced the tactics behind one of the most shameful policies of the Obama era, openly using the guise of her federal authority to berate and not so subtly threaten a bank for lawfully serving businesses that don’t reflect her political views. While the media did their best to protect Barack Obama and his administration from any hint of scandal, two gun related issues man...

The Founder Of Girls Who Code Wants Women To Lose (& Win)

Reshma Saujani, the founder and CEO of Girls Who Code, will be the first to tell you that her first big success was technically a failure. In 2010, Saujani hit pause on a successful career in law and finance to run for incumbent Rep. Carolyn Maloney's seat in Congress."I ran the hardest kind of race of my life and I lost famously. Miserably," Saujani recently told Refinery29. "When you run for political office, everybody knows that you lose. You can't hide it."But instead of letting the loss de...

Prominent New Yorkers Are Trying To Get Amazon To Bring Back HQ2

The New York Times reported Thursday that an open letter will be published in the Times on Friday that asks Amazon to reconsider its decision to walk away from its plan to build a 25,000-employee campus in Long Island City, Queens. The company pulled the plug on the project, dubbed HQ2, following vocal and persistent opposition to the plan after it was announced three months ago. CNET reports: The letter was signed by the CEOs of Mastercard, Warby Parker, Goldman Sachs, Tishman Speyer and Jetblu...

Will Senate Republicans Jerk Around 9/11 Survivors Again?

For the third time over the last two decades, first responders and other survivors of the September 11, 2001 attacks have come to Congress to ask for help. The question this time around is whether Senate Republicans will force them to repeatedly drag themselves back this year to beg for their country’s support as more continue to die. The James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act is facing its second reauthorization fight, and funds have run dry for the part of program that gives out mone...

How Gillibrand Defied The Odds To Get 9/11 First Responders Long-Awaited Help

When the House finally managed to pass a bill to care for the first responders and other survivors suffering from 9/11-related illnesses in late 2010, few thought it stood much of a chance of becoming law. Senate Republicans promised a filibuster. Democrats, just weeks away from losing the House, were running out of time to pass top priorities. The impending lame-duck session of Congress was already so packed with other top issues — repealing Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, the DREAM Act, extending the...

The Constitution Doesn't Give Women Equal Rights — Congress Wants To Change That

In the United States of America, women are still not equal to men in the eye of the U.S. Constitution. This is because the Constitution fails to include language that guarantees equal rights for all citizens, regardless of their gender. The Equal Rights Amendment, first introduced in 1923, aimed to correct that. But nearly a century has gone by and lawmakers have failed to advance this constitutional amendment.That might change with the 116th Congress.On Tuesday, a bipartisan group launched a n...

Congressional Democrats move to stop U.S. Census citizenship question

Democrats in the U.S. Congress on Wednesday were moving ahead with legislation to prevent the Trump administration from adding a citizenship question to the 2020 Census, following a court decision this week blocking inclusion of such information. Representative Carolyn Maloney, a senior Democrat on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, told reporters that she is re-introducing her bill, which was ignored by Republicans in 2017-2018 when they controlled the House of Representative...

Dem Rep. Maloney Bests Unconventional Primary Challenger

Rep. Carolyn Maloney handily won the Democratic primary Tuesday in the New York City congressional district she’s represented for 25 years, fending off a challenge from unconventional progressive opponent Suraj Patel. The New York Times and Associated Press called it for Maloney at around 10: 20 PM ET. She earned 58 percent of the vote with 87 percent of the votes counted.

Real Elections. Awesome.

It’s primary day for us here in New York State. One of the bad things about New York voting, partly by design, is that the state runs elections with a deliberate inefficiency. So federal primaries (House races) are on a different day than state primaries (governor). In 2016, the presidential primary was on yet a third date. In this case, it goes back to a court decision about the date of the federal primary, though a major contributing issue is indifference to making it easier to vote. We also d...

Mulvaney Promises CFPB Reform, End of ‘Regulation by Enforcement’

Mick Mulvaney on Wednesday used his time before Congress to declare the end of regulation by enforcement — all while insisting that he didn’t actually have to answer any questions. “Regulation by enforcement is done,” the acting director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau said during testimony before the House Financial Services Committee. “We’re not doing it anymore. I believe very firmly that financial service providers should be allowed to know what the law is before they are accused...

Stopping the modern slave trade of human sex trafficking

Last year, Irvine made national news when authorities busted a large, multi-state sex trafficking ring that forced numerous young women into prostitution. Most of the victims came from China and Korea with limited English skills. The victims were subjected to physical assaults at the hands of their “customers” while being forced to produce at least $800 each day for the traffickers. These women were repeatedly exploited through thousands of advertisements on a website known as Backpage.com, whic...

Carson: New Reverse Mortgage Rules Will ‘Stop the Bleeding’

Speaking at a hearing before the House of Representatives on Thursday, Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson directly addressed recent changes to the reverse mortgage program. “When the reverse mortgage program was initiated, I think it was done with very good intentions, but without really looking down the pike, and people were taking out much larger amounts of their equity in the beginning than was sustainable,” Carson said, “and this was leading to a lot more proble...

Yellen Dodges Question On Possibly Serving Second Term

WASHINGTON (AP) — Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen says she “absolutely” intends to serve out her four-year term as head of the central bank but she hasn’t given thought to whether she would accept a second term if President Donald Trump asked her to do so. Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-New York, noted that all three of Yellen’s recent predecessors, Paul Volcker, Alan Greenspan and Ben Bernanke, were first nominated by a president of one party and re-nominated by a president of another party. “There...

There was no lack of feminist slogans, pussy hats, or unifying bandanas throughout Fashion Month. However, the fashion industry had yet to lay out a set of actionable steps to support the foreign-born workers who've been affected by the new administration’s proposed immigration policies, as well as those who continue to struggle with navigating the pitfalls of the existing system (which has been in place, with little reform, since 1965). A new report released by the Council of Fashion Designers...
