Opposing Hagel: It’s Crunch Time

By David French1361572015000

The fight against Chuck Hagel’s nomination is entering a critical phase.  Yesterday, writing on Fox News’ website, Jay highlighted how Senator Hagel was calling for increased cooperation with Iran just weeks after an Iranian-coordinated attack on American troops in Iraq.  In other words, Senator Hagel was calling for engagement with Iran even as Iran was committing acts of war against the U.S.

With a vote scheduled as early as next week, fifteen Republican senators wrote President Obama asking that he withdraw Senator Hagel’s nomination.  The tidal wave of grassroots opposition to Senator Hagel has already led to a filibuster and to Senator Hagel being questioned more than any defense nominee in recent memory, but several senators are now wavering.  

We’re urging our readers to use the “Contact Congress” function on our website to directly contact your Senators.  Your petition signatures have slowed his nomination and helped empower a so-far successful filibuster; now it’s crunch time.  Personal contact could make the difference.

By Matthew Clark1412604353722

With 1,600 military “advisers” on the ground in Iraq, 2,300 of our troops being deployed to the Middle East as a “special purpose marine air ground task force,” and ongoing airstrikes being conducted in Iraq and Syria against ISIS’s jihadist army, it is absolutely stunning that our military...

What They Don’t Understand

By David French1412354987676

Let me begin with a confession. I watch (and laugh at) way too much liberal political humor. I can’t help it. I think Jon Stewart is funny, and as funny as he is, I think John Oliver is funnier. His HBO special specializes in the “long-form” takedown, with 15-minute segments devoted to a single...
