Schumer to include Upstate New York and Puerto
Rico in statehood legislation

Original Article

Posted By: John C, 11/17/2020 7:29:32 AM

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, who is enduring criticism inside his caucus for a string of election losses under his leadership, is unlikely to gain a majority in the chamber this year. But that isn’t stopping the Brooklynite from advancing statehood legislation that would welcome Puerto Rico and Upstate New York as the 51st and 52nd States of the Union. Schumer is not expected to pursue statehood for the District of Columbia in the bill, which is a far less popular and more politically polarizing proposition —


Might open the door for splitting CA and OR, which would be GOP pick ups..

Be careful with that idea of dividing states. Texas and Alaska are plenty big enough to win at that little game.

Upstate New York? Did anyone consult them about this or are you just being presumptuous? Hell, why don't you make each one of the Hawaiian Islands individual states while you're at it? Maybe Long Island wants to secede, huh? You're all looney tunes.

The only way DC statehood could be supported is if DC also includes Northern Virginia and Maryland east of I 81.

the law in our constitution is that it did not include a way to kick a state out of the Union. I would support a merger between Delaware, New Jersey as one state. I would combine Oregon and Washington State. and I would work on a way to dispose of the leper colony known as Hawaii, entirely. i would also push puerto Rico out as a territory. It is time for PR to become an independent country. It is slick for Chuckie to propose splitting NYC from Upstate NY, because the NYC population would spill over into Upstate, thus making it more dimocrat. finally, it would make sense for the Upper Peninsula part of Michigan to split off and become a state. and RI shou8ld be erased from the map, merging rI with Connecticut. That would be the best way to get rids of sheldon Whitehouse. He irks me.

Have friends from PR. They tell me the people of PR do not want statehood. They would have to pay taxes. Why would they! But who knows. If they are allowed to vote, the Dominion voting machines will decide for them.

Schumer isn't going to introduce anything that doesn't benefit democrats only. If Upstate includes Rochester and Buffalo, it would still be a democrat state.

Really? Fine, then let’s also let the conservative parts of liberal/leftist states split off, too. Eastern Washington, eastern Oregon, parts of California, everything Pennsylvania that is not Philadelphia, and so on. If that’s the game Schumer wants to play, let’s do it and isolate them in their stinking, poo-filled cities.

There is precedent. Maine was part of Massachusetts until the 1820s. West Virginia split away from Virginia over the Civil War. However, it wasn't a lone, craven, power-crazed Senator who made the changes.

There are all kinds of scenarios that would make more sense than Schumer's upstate New York proposal, although I have read for many years that upstate New York feels like a stepchild . Oklahoma's panhandle is a perfect match to merge into Texas's panhandle, and east Texas is much more akin to Louisiana than to Texas Obviously northern and southern California don't have much in common Maybe Texas would benefot by annexing all of New Mexico. And it would be great if we could get Arkansas's abundant water. Lots to think about, but none of it seriously.

Don't fall for this. Schumer is a Democrat, and any new states would tilt towards the Democrats. Puerto Rico would clearly be a deep blue state. As for upstate NY, lefties from downstate have been migrating upstate for decades, and even more so recently as downstaters flee NYC because of covid but don't want to flee the state because they like its leftist policies.

I have read a few comments and none seem to know that there are approx 15 initiatives to split up New York State, into 2 or 3 parts, which have been underway for years. I live Upstate and voting is useless when the NYC population is so much larger. Geographically 'UpState' is approx 90%+ of the land mass and we are under the control of the 10%, particularly the fool of a Governor who is corrupt to the core. Even most of the elected officials 'upstate' hate him. Enough said.

Oregon has long wanted a split. Given the weird political set up we have, with blue Portland getting most of the statewide decisions their way, republicans in the rest of the state would love a two way split. Split off Eastern Oregon and let them join with Idaho if they want, and Southern Oregon from south of Eugene on down joining up with Northern Cali which is pretty red as well. Let the blue areas have their own states and stop inflicting their miseries on the rest of us.

The Bureau of Land Management on Friday said it was removing 10 tracts, encompassing nearly 475,000 acres, from its Jan. 6 oil and gas lease sale in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge’s coastal plain.
The federal agency also said it will begin receiving bids for the remaining available tracts on Monday. (SNIP)
President-elect Joe Biden and his nominee for Interior secretary, Rep. Deb Haaland, D-N.M., both oppose oil development in the refuge, although a lease sale could make it harder for them to halt it.

China’s trade actions on Australian wine, beef and other goods may have delivered a substantial hit to our economy but this is likely to be offset by the booming iron ore price, new analysis suggests. While specific industries targeted by China will be hurting, the trade tensions with Australia are driving up prices for iron ore and could leave the economy better off overall. Deloitte economist Chris Richardson said a “fear tax” had driven iron ore prices so high, (SNIP) All commodities are priced in US dollars and so the falls in the currency have also made iron ore more expensive, alongside low interest rates.

Nothing says “bold” and “change” like putting John Kerry in your cabinet and freezing out Elizabeth Warren. Joe Biden’s move to make the former Massachusetts senator his climate czar is a predictable nod to climate change activists who want to see the issue given a prominent place in the new White House. It also ensures taxpayers will be footing the bill for the jet-setting millionaire Kerry to take plenty of future junkets to Paris and Oslo and other prime spots around the world.

That would put the Gross campaign at more than $14 million raised throughout the campaign, with about $5 million cash-on-hand when campaign finance reports are filed with the Federal Elections Commission by Oct. 15. Gross, an independent who has secured the Democratic nomination, is running against Republican Sen. Dan Sullivan to be Alaska’s junior senator. Heading into the summer, Gross, an orthopedic surgeon from Juneau, was a relatively unknown political figure.

Behind the scenes: A top Biden official was unaware of the directive. Administration officials left open the possibility cooperation would resume after a holiday pause. The officials were unsure what prompted Miller’s action, or whether President Trump approved. Why it matters: Miller’s move, which stunned officials throughout the Pentagon, was the biggest eruption yet of animus and mistrust toward the Biden team from the top level of the Trump administration.  Correction*

New polling in the highly contested Georgia Senate runoffs shows both Republican incumbents with an edge. What’s more, the new Emerson College Polling survey shows very little “crossover” voting by partisans, suggesting that voters are locked in to their choices. Both Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler lead their opponents Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock 51%-48%. That 3-point margin is within the margin of error in the poll. But it suggests that as the race tightens, the GOP still has an edge. And when combined with little movement by voters, it is a good sign for the Republicans and their hopes to maintain control
