The State Department said on Wednesday that it is troubled by reports that Iran has picked as its ambassador to the United Nations a man who is believed to have participated in the 1979 hostage crisis at the U.S. Embassy in Tehran.
When President Obama and New York Sen. Charles E. Schumer join forces to ostensibly protect freedom of speech and the press, it's time for believers in the First Amendment to take to the battlements.
Liberals back in the day liked to champion free speech and the First Amendment rights — even of those with whom they disagreed or found obnoxious.
It is too bad that Sen. Charles E. Schumer of New York, his fellow Democrats and the mainstream media are going after the people in the Tea Party and others who have opinions different from those of the Obama administration.
Democrats should push for more open primaries as a way of weakening the tea party movement, Sen. Charles E. Schumer, New York Democrat, said Thursday, laying out a plan to try to isolate the grass-roots conservative movement that has emerged as a key hurdle to President Obama's agenda over the past three years.
Sen. Charles E. Schumer, New York Democrat, said he thinks Congress will reform immigration in 2014 because of Speaker John A. Boehner's break with the tea party during the budget debate.
Presidential press secretary Jay Carney uttered 10 words the other day that represent a major presidential challenge to the American Israel lobby and its friends on Capitol Hill. Referring to Senate legislation designed to force President Obama to expand economic sanctions on Iran under conditions the president opposes, Mr. Carney said: "If it were to pass, the president would veto it."
The Senate voted Monday to extend a ban on undetectable plastic guns for 10 years just hours before the act was scheduled to expire, but advocates lamented that it didn't go far enough and vowed to push forward to expand it in the near future.
The House voted Tuesday to renew a ban on undetectable plastic guns, sending the bill to the Senate, where Democrats must decide whether to accept it as is or pick a fight that could cause them to break the Dec. 9 deadline when the ban expires.
Gun rights groups are rallying to try to stop any extension of a federal law to ban undetectable plastic guns, saying that if the House GOP passes something Senate Democrats will turn it into a broader gun control push.
The federal law banning undetectable plastic guns expires in two weeks and Congress is on a Thanksgiving vacation, making it likely the law will lapse — and opening up at least a temporary problem.
Sen. Charles E. Schumer, New York Democrat, said Thursday that he'd bet "quite a bit" that comprehensive immigration reforming will pass Congress, and that he wouldn't rule out something happening by the end of the year.
A top Senate Democrat said Monday he thinks House Speaker John A. Boehner will eventually concede and put a "clean bill" on the chamber floor to fund federal operations and end the government shutdown.
Sen. Charles E. Schumer had a prediction on Monday on how House Speaker John A. Boehner will proceed on the government shutdown: He'll cave, Mr. Schumer said.
"This man has no place in the diplomatic process," Mr. Schumer said in a statement. "Iran's attempt to appoint Mr. Aboutalebi is a slap in the face to the Americans that were abducted, and their families. It reveals a disdain for the diplomatic process and we should push back in kind."
