As the financial crisis jolted the nation in September, Senator Charles E. Schumer was consumed. He traded telephone calls with bankers, then became one of the first officials to promote a Wall Street bailout. He spent hours in closed-door briefings and a weekend helping Congressional leaders nail down details of the $700 billion rescue package.

The next day, Mr. Schumer appeared at a breakfast fund-raiser in Midtown Manhattan for Senate Democrats. Addressing Henry R. Kravis, the buyout billionaire, and about 20 other finance industry executives, he warned that a bailout would be a hard sell on Capitol Hill. Then he offered some reassurance: The businessmen could count on the Democrats to help steer the nation through the financial turmoil.

 “We are not going to be a bunch of crazy, anti-business liberals,” one executive said, summarizing Mr. Schumer’s remarks. “We are going to be effective, moderate advocates for sound economic policies, good responsible stewards you can trust.”

The message clearly resonated. The next week, executives at firms represented at the breakfast sent in more than $135,000 in campaign donations.

 He succeeded in limiting efforts to regulate credit-rating agencies, for example, sponsored legislation that cut fees paid by Wall Street firms to finance government oversight, pushed to allow banks to have lower capital reserves and called for the revision of regulations to make corporations’ balance sheets more transparent.

At times in Congress, Mr. Schumer has teamed up with Republicans, like former Senator Phil Gramm of Texas, who aggressively promoted a free-market agenda. Mr. Schumer pushed for the Gramm-Leach-Bliley law, passed in November 1999, which knocked down the walls between investment banks and commercial banks and allowed financial supermarkets to flourish.The law also weakened regulatory oversight by fracturing it among different agencies.

Great way to start off the new year for the Democrats. New Senate Minority leader, and Wall Street mega-defender, Chuck Schumer just went on Rachel Maddow’s MSNBC show and warned Donald Trump that U.S. intelligence agencies could retaliate against him for disagreeing with their claims (based on no public evidence thus far) that Russia hacked the DNC/John Podesta and released it to Wikileaks with the intent of helping Trump win the election.

Here’s what he said courtesy of The Washington Examiner:

The new leader of Democrats in the Senate says Donald Trump is being “really dumb” for picking a fight with intelligence officials, suggesting they have ways to strike back, after the president-elect speculated Tuesday that his “so-called” briefing about Russian cyberattacks had been delayed in order to build a case.

“Let me tell you: You take on the intelligence community — they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you,” said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer Tuesday evening on MSNBC after host Rachel Maddow informed him that intelligence sources told NBC news that the briefing had not been delayed.

Trump will replace Schumer before you know it. He'll silence and crush all democraps.

50 Analyst of the CENTCOM intelligence community notified Congress that the Obama Administration was spinning their intel reports to fit their political needs... if they are doing it at CENTCOM this Administration is doing it across the board.

What is very troubling... is that Obama has had 8yrs to seed the intelligence community with political hacks and his Marxist allies... It is apparent, from the CIA intel reports and posturing, that Trump will need to review all the senior management in the Intel community for political operatives and where necessary either fire them or transfer them too places they can do no harm... like monitoring Polar Bear Migration routes in Alaska...

Trump faces an up hill battle to gain control of a beauracracy that has been stacked with Obama political operatives over the past 8yrs.. including a Department of Defense that has promoted liberal and left leaning senior officers into positions of authority... A complete vetting and purge of key civil service positions may be necessary, within the first 12-18 months, just to ID and deal with political hacks left behind by Obama.  This problem can not be ignored.

The current progressive (communist) Democratic Party is not that of Harry Truman's Day.

Chuck "Oy Vey" Schumer will do anything to stay in office. With Bernie Sanders and  Mpls muslim Congressman  Keith Ellison leading the Democrat Party, more radical positions will be taken by all those in the party. Can you recall Democrat Nancy Pelousey stating " We have to pass the 2,800 page ObamaCare Bill  To see what is inside it".

I rest my case.

It is important to remember what has happened to the Communist Party of America that used to have a candidate for president at one time.  When they realized they could not gain any favor with the people, they abandoned the communist party and made their home in the established parties.  One can study Hollywood, higher education, the labor unions and the major news media to see who they support and you can quickly see that most of the Communists are now part of the progressive (socialist) Democratic party.  It is unfortunate that Chuck Schumer cannot see that his very important position could position would be very helpfuil in offering his support to the future of America by supporting instead of opposing some of the changes that Trump is trying to make to protect the people of America.   

Trump will crush Schumer just like he crushed any opponent on his way to the White House. Trump cannot tolerate opposition when he makes America great again. America is a republic and not a democracy. I hope Trump will have Schumer find out soon what that means.

I can't figure out what he's referring to, when he says "Intelligence Community" as I have not observed anything "Intelligent" coming from the Swamp in ages. 

The classic "Intelligence Community" was destroyed by Bill Clinton and has never fully recovered.  Bill closed military bases around the world and closed CIA foreign stations, including those attached to embassies around the world.  He gave those embassy jobs to the FBI, which were allowed to serve without so much as language speaking skills and had no training in spy craft..  Thanks Billy boy.  You weakened us that invited zealous cave dwellers to attack America on 9/11/2001.  That is a huge part of the Clinton legacy.

This stupid peice of nothing is just another Omuslime puppet and can not think for himself just like the rest of the friggin' dumbacraps,they have their talking points fed to them if you really listen to them they have the same words in their interviews if they mess up they get called on the carpet by their trainers,I see now where the Scieintoligist get their training program from. 

So who gives a rats ass what Schumer says, he has absolutely no power.

When are the patriotic Constitutional conservatives going to realize and act like they have a totally winning hand with a president and total control of the congress ?

We dont have to give a damn what the progressive socialists/ democrats say or do.

We can and will enact our patriotic agenda for ALL Americans.

They play the bluff that they have won the popular vote. Thats pure BS.

Subtract the people who voted illegally and the dead voters and the truth is the other way around.

Be nice to the losers, but only if they do not get in the way.

Remember how they passed Obamacare ?

That had better be a lesson learned.

Dont listen to crap heads like Chuckie Schumer and the adle brain Pelosi.

WE WON !!!!

Shumer is full of shit and hot air. He has nothing to do with the intelligence community or what they do.He is another Libitard psychological dreamer that tries to use useless  threats he thinks can get his way.

& We The People should trust the Intelligence Community why??? Because they ate such 'up-standing and honest people'??? Because they always get their 'Intelligence Right'???? Because We are Told to Believe them????

In the 1970's early '80's CITCOM never got the hardly ever got their 'Information' right . . .

I would watch Trump and Schumer will be battling a lot in the next 4 years.  Schumer is trying hard to make his name big and famous.  Saving his party and he will be Obama's voice.

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
