Emergency-Declaration Rebuke Splits Senate GOP

On Thursday afternoon, twelve Republican senators — nearly a fifth of the GOP caucus — joined Senate Democrats to pass a resolution terminating the national emergency declared by President Trump last month in an effort to unilaterally appropriate funds for construction of his long-promised border wall.

Democrat Governor of Virginia moonwalks away from controversy

“Accuse the other side of that which you are guilty.” – Josef Goebbels, Nazi Propaganda Minister The Democrat Governor of Virginia, who is a pediatric neurologist, said on a radio show that, essentially, once a baby is born the mother should have the right to decide to keep it alive or to kill it. But here is the weird thing:  That was not what got him in trouble with his Democrat base.

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...

Will San Onofre spur a Yucca Mountain revival?

One thing was very clear after a near-disastrous almost- accident last summer at the now-defunct San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station beside the Orange-San Diego county line: Canisters of radioactive waste from the shuttered plant already placed for “temporary” storage on its grounds and new containers not yet placed must go somewhere else, as soon as possible. The problem is, there is no other place and virtually no one wants an atomic dump anywhere near their home. That’s why nuclear waste is...

Tough-On-Crime Trump AG Pick Will Insist He Backs Sentencing Reform

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump’s pick to be attorney general will assure lawmakers he supports a recent criminal justice overhaul that eases federal sentencing rules, even though he pushed tough-on-crime policies for decades, a person close to the confirmation process told The Associated Press. William Barr is likely to face questions during his confirmation hearing Tuesday about his rhetoric during and after his first stint as attorney general in the early 1990s. At the time, Barr a...

Reid Reflects On Trump: ‘He Is Not Immoral But Is Amoral,’ ‘No Conscience’

From his home in Nevada, former Senate leader Harry Reid (D-NV) described President Donald Trump and the “chaos” his administration has brought in a New York Times magazine profile published Wednesday. “Trump is an interesting person. He is not immoral but is amoral. Amoral is when you shoot someone in the head, it doesn’t make a difference. No conscience,” he said. “I think he is without question the worst president we’ve ever had. We’ve had some bad ones, and there’s not even a close second...

Harry Reid "does not have long to live. I hate to be so abrupt about this, but Reid probably would not mind."

Writes Mark Leibovich in "Harry Reid Has a Few Words for Washington/The former Senate majority leader on President Trump and Senator Chuck Schumer, and on why he doesn’t regret ending the filibuster for judicial appointment" (NYT Magazine).In May, he went in for a colonoscopy, the results of which caused concern among his doctors. This led to an M.R.I. that turned up a lesion on Reid’s pancreas: cancer. Reid’s subdued and slightly cold manner, and aggressive anticharisma, have always made him an...

How Harry Reid’s Democratic Machine Swept Nevada: A Model For Other States

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Harry Reid may no longer lead Senate Democrats in Washington, but the political machine he built in Nevada has Republicans on the run. Democrats romped up and down the state in the Nov. 6 midterm elections, ousting Republican Sen. Dean Heller, winning races for governor and lieutenant governor, and expanding their state legislative majorities. The shellacking was 15 years in the making, the culmination of a long-term plan to shift a battleground into the Democratic column. De...

Reid: ‘I Made A Mistake’ Opposing Birthright Citizenship, Trump ‘Profoundly Wrong’

Former Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid told President Donald Trump that he “can tweet whatever he wants while he sits around watching TV, but he is profoundly wrong” about his insistence that birthright citizenship ought to be limited to the children of U.S. citizens, rather than applying to everyone born in the United States. The strong consensus of constitutional scholars and precedent is that birthright citizenship is guaranteed by the 14th Amendment of the Constitution. Trump claimed...

Democrats Look To Grind Out A Must-Win Against Their Top Senate Target

Sen. Dean Heller’s (R-NV) seat has been at the top of every Democrat’s holiday wishlist for the past two years. But he’s not in a giving mood. Heller remains very much in the fight against Rep. Jacky Rosen (D-NV) in their high-stakes campaign, Democrats’ best chance of defeating a GOP Senate incumbent and a must-win for the party as they seek to gain and not lose ground in the Senate. National Democrats have been banking on a win in the state for months to have any hope at shrinking Republicans’...
