Nancy Pelosi
Speaker of the House

This page contains material about the first female Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, her goals and her agenda, and the news and opinion you may have missed if you get all your information from television.

Her main goal, presumably, is the advancement of the Democratic Party Platform, which has a page of its own.

Recently, Ms. Pelosi seems to have come to a fork in the road:  She is a Catholic, but she also is a proponent of abortion, also known as fetal homicide.  This subtopic is now discussed in a subsection of its own, located here.

Another big subtopic that comes and goes from the headlines is Ms. Pelosi's taste for luxurious air travel at the taxpayers' expense.  That topic is discussed here.

A Cool $5 Million-Does Pelosi Know Something We Don't?  It's not hard to see why some politicians are calling for a ban on lawmakers trading stocks.  The problems of senators and House reps getting filthy rich and generating conflicts of interest have been with us for a long time.  But the loot amassed by former California Democrat and former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is raising eyebrows afresh.  According to the widely followed X account "Unusual Whales," which tracks suspicious trades, Pelosi has made $5 million recently from her stock in the company Nvidia, which is now the most valuable company in the world (albeit with a much higher price to earnings ratio than second and third place, Microsoft and Apple).  The company is best-known for its computer graphics cards powering popular high resolution video games, but like all such companies, it's branching out into Artificial Intelligence (AI).  For reference, this is 20 times her annual salary.

Turley Demolishes Pelosi and J6 Committee, As Former Capitol Police Chief Finishes Her With More Facts.  I reported on the bombshell video of former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) admitting responsibility for the lack of security at the Capitol as she was leaving it on Jan. 6. She also said they should have been accountable but weren't.  [Advertisement]  The video was taken by her daughter for an HBO documentary about Jan. 6, but hadn't been released to the public before a couple of days ago.  The House Administration Oversight Committee released it after they got it from HBO.  Pelosi gave a ridiculous and desperate response to the release of the video, calling it "revisionist history" from Republicans.  That prompted a lot of mockery from people.  How could her own words be "revisionist history"?  Meanwhile, the former chief of the Capitol Police at the time of the riot, Steven Sund, responded to the video and blasted her, saying he had asked for the National Guard multiple times and he was turned down.

Pelosi in full meltdown over her J6 performance.  For the last three-and-a-half years, the Democrats have owned the Jan. 6 narrative.  Republicans in Congress and the media gave it away without a fight.  The good news is that party standard-bearer Donald Trumpappears intent on taking it back.  On Sunday in Las Vegas, Trump made his strongest statement yet about that memorable day, saying, "There has never been people treated more horrifically than J6 hostages."  Coincidentally or not, a snippet from the footage Pelosi's daughter Alexandra shot for HBO surfaced on line a day later.  The video was extracted from about 45 minutes of footage handed over recently to the House administration oversight subcommittee.  Shot in the backseat of Pelosi's vehicle as she was being driven away from the Capitol on Jan. 6, Pelosi speaks about her own role in allowing the chaos to happen.  "We take responsibility, Terri," a testy Pelosi says to her chief of staff Terri McCullough.  "We did not have any accountability for what was going on there, and we should have.  This is ridiculous."

J6 Capitol Police Chief Says Speaker's Staff Blocked Additional Security.  Former Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund responded to a viral video of former Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) admitting that she was responsible for the lack of preparedness on Jan. 6, 2021.  "Pelosi should take responsibility!" Sund posted on X, adding "She put herself in the security decision process and her Sergeant at Arms denied my requests for support before and during the Jan. 6 chaos.  She undermined my law enforcement capabilities."  Sund, who was in charge of the Capitol Police during Jan. 6, then asked "Why did they change the law (2US1970) that tied my hands?"  [Tweet]

Liberal Jon Stewart Accuses Pelosi of 'Legal Corruption'.  Liberal TV host Jon Stewart has called out Democrat Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for enriching herself with decades of "legal corruption."  The backlash against Pelosi's insider trading scheme, which has resulted in her and her family growing incredibly rich, has been slowly building for some time.  So much so, that now even other liberals are starting to have a serious problem with Pelosi's scheming.  Politics is supposed to be about acting as a public servant.  However, lawmakers like Pelosi have abused their powers to massively inflate their own personal wealth.

Nancy Pelosi yet again reveals Democrats' disdain for average Americans.  Do Democrats have contempt for Americans who aren't part of the richest 1% or don't live in cities on the coast?  This query comes after former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) made an outrageous comment during a recent Oxford Union debate, calling those who may see themselves as part of the populist movement just "poor souls who are looking for some answers."  "We've given [answers] to them, but they're blocked by some of their views on guns.  They have the three Gs:  guns, gays, God," huffed the the 84-year-old Pelosi.  "That would be a woman's right to choose — and the cultural issues cloud some of their reception of an argument that really is in their interest."  How utterly condescending, albeit not surprising considering the elitist bubble that Pelosi — who, along with her husband, is worth north of $100 million — lives in.

National Guard Whistleblowers to Testify They Were Ready to Be Deployed on Jan. 6 But Pentagon Delayed Orders.  As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, former Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser were both warned about the security situation prior to January 6th and both of them turned down National Guard troops at the US Capitol that day.  Pelosi and Mayor Muriel Bowser turned down thousands of National Guard troops at the Capitol on January 6 for political reasons.  Chris Wray's FBI also refused to notify the Trump administration and his cabinet secretaries that they believed there could be violence like the mass protests at the Capitol that took place that day.  Nancy Pelosi also refused the National Guard at the US Capitol due to politics.

Nancy Pelosi Marks César Chávez Day, Trans Visibility Day on Easter Sunday.  Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) marked Transgender Visibility Day and César Chávez Day on Easter Sunday, though California state government offices will only observe Chávez Day on Monday, April 1.  Pelosi issued a tweet honoring the late farmworker union organizer and civil rights leader on Sunday, shortly after posting a message of Easter greetings to Christians nationwide.  [Multiple tweets]  Pelosi's recognition of C&ecute;sar Chávez Day on Easter Sunday comes as President Joe Biden faces criticism for recognizing the day as Transgender Day of Visibility — one of over 50 LGBTQIA2S+-themed annual observances.

Nancy Pelosi's Son Gets Off Scot-Free (Again) for Money and Mail Fraud.  Another day, another Democrat or Democrat-approved person suffers no consequences for their actions.  Paul Pelosi Jr., son of Representative Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Paul Pelosi Sr., was linked to two individuals, Bill Garlock and Gina Rodriguez, who were involved in financial schemes related to a flophouse in San Francisco's Mission District Paul Jr. supposedly owned.  Apparently, there is paperwork showing Jr. bribing people for building permits around the area, as the Daily Mail reported. [...] Also, did you know this is the seventh time Paul Pelosi Jr. has been tied to federal crimes?

What amazing luck!
Nancy Pelosi's son Paul Pelosi Jr. dodges federal charges for the seventh time after being linked to money laundering.  Two fraudsters linked to Nancy Pelosi's son are set to be sentenced over a money laundering and mail fraud scheme, can reveal.  It is the seventh federal case that Paul Pelosi Jr., the 55-year-old son of the former House Speaker, has been embroiled in, documented in an extensive investigation by  The charges leveled by federal prosecutors against fraudsters Bill Garlock and Gina Rodriguez, include shady dealings over a San Francisco flop house that Pelosi Jr. claimed to own.

Nancy Pelosi's Son Dodges Charges In Money Laundering, Mail Fraud Scheme Linked To San Francisco Flop House.  Bill Garlock and Gina Rodriguez scammed investors into fronting over $1 million for supposed real estate ventures, and instead used the cash to pay for their lifestyle[,] including rent, loan repayments, credit card bills, and 'horse-related expenses,' according to San Francisco federal prosecutors.  The two obtained money from investors "by means of materially false and fraudulent pretenses, representations, and promises, and by means of concealment of material facts, including through the use of half-truths," according to a 2022 indictment.  One project which the pair presented to duped investors was the renovation of a dilapidated mixed-use building at the corner of Utah and 24th Street, which Paul Pelosi Jr. claimed to own 20% of[,] and was involved in a 2017 bribery scheme to obtain permits for the property, a move which led to the imprisonment of a city official and an engineering consultant following an FBI sting.  The property, located in the Mission District of San Francisco, has a troubled past of code violations and squalid conditions.  In other words, a flop house.

More Evidence Emerges of Congress Members Engaging in Insider Trading.  Fresh evidence has emerged that shows members of Congress have continued to engage in insider trading — a practice that would land members of the public in jail.  Business Insider reports that new evidence has been found supporting the allegation that Democrat Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and other members of Congress are engaged in insider trading. [...] The claim has been that some members of Congress — most notably Pelosi — have profited tremendously from insider, non-public, knowledge that they have obtained through their government positions.

Pelosi's husband made over $1.25 million on Nvidia stock bet in just three months.  Democratic California Rep. Nancy Pelosi's husband bet big on computer chip company Nvidia late last year, which has since made him over $1.25 million in just three months.  Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., who has received widespread scrutiny over her husband's stock purchases, is making bank on another well-timed bet on a familiar corporation.  The California Democrat's husband, Paul, who owns a San Francisco investment and consulting firm, scooped up between $1 million and $5 million worth of call options in computer chip company Nvidia on Nov. 22. Pelosi, however, held off on reporting the transaction until right before Christmas.  Nvidia is not new to the Pelosis.  In 2022, Paul grabbed more than $1 million in Nvidia call options — which give investors the right to buy shares of a company at a specific price — just weeks before a congressional vote on providing massive subsidies to the chip manufacturing industry.  He sold them after she received criticism over their timing.

Nancy Pelosi, 83, says Joe Biden's age makes him "wise".  President Joe Biden was described by the special counsel earlier this month "a sympathetic elderly man with a poor memory."  Since then, Biden, 81, has been facing more and more scrutiny into his mental acuity and his advanced age.  Not to worry!  Rep. Nancy Pelosi, 83, finds it completely normal for Biden to run for a second term.  The California Democrat said on CNN, "He's younger than I am, so what do I have to say about his age?  Pelosi dismissed voters' concerns about Biden's senior moments.  "I think his public presentation is OK," she said.

New J6 Evidence Emerges, Pelosi Colluded With Secret Service?  The more we find out about the events of J6, the more Nancy Pelosi becomes suspect.  According to sources, the former Speaker of the House was in contact with the Secret Service on that day and was caught on video stating that she was 'waiting' for the 'trespass' on Capitol grounds.  She was waiting for it, in her own words.  Pelosi reportedly spoke with the Secret Service before they spoke to President Trump on that day and told him that they didn't have the resources to protect him in the Capitol.  There was also a communication trail between Pelosi's office and the Secret Service from that day, but, of course, much of it has been 'lost.'  Additionally, it was Pelosi's office that was charged with providing security for that day, but Pelosi reportedly denied requests for additional security multiple times.

Pelosi Suggests States Can Overrule Constitution and Ban Trump From Presidential Ballot.  Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Sunday suggested the states can overrule the US Constitution and ban Trump from the presidential ballot.  Pelosi appeared on ABC's "This Week" to discuss Trump's Colorado ballot appeal to the US Supreme Court with host George Stephanopoulos.  Last week President Trump asked the US Supreme Court to overturn the Colorado Supreme Court's decision to bar him from the 2024 ballot.  The Colorado Supreme Court last month disqualified Trump from the 2024 ballot.

Pelosi says states, not voters, should be able to decide who is on a ballot.  Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi just stunned viewers on national television by admitting that she thinks states should decide who's allowed to run for president of the United States.  This would give states like California the ability to drop former President Trump from the ballot if she got her way.  Many feel her actions aren't about protecting "democracy" but about pure, unadulterated power.  Pelosi told CNN's Dana Bash on Thursday that although "martyr" Donald Trump could be the beneficiary from the "raw politics" of being removed from state presidential ballots, it's the "kitchen table issues" that are important to American voters.

Pelosi's stocks surge: 'A sign of quasi-insider trading that's corrupt'.  Former House Speaker and Democratic Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California made a 65% profit on her stock trading portfolio in 2023, according to an analysis of House of Representatives financial disclosure records by the group Unusual Whales.  Pelosi and her husband Paul, a venture capitalist in San Francisco, have long been known for their jointly held stock portfolio, which has made significant profits in recent years.  In 2023, the Pelosi portfolio's profits were driven by trading options contracts — which allow the holder to purchase a stock at a lower price than its market value — and outperformed the Standard and Poor's 500 Index of the U.S. stock market's largest companies by a margin of 40%, Unusual Whales reported.

Nancy Pelosi's 2023 trading gains top 65%, boosted by stock options: report.  Nancy Pelosi's investment portfolio is once again among the top performers on Capitol Hill — and lately she has gotten a major boost from a controversial use of stock options, according to government disclosures.  The 83-year-old, former House speaker — who remains a Democratic congresswoman representing San Francisco — racked up a 65% return on her stocks portfolio in 2023 — more than double the S&P 500's 24% gain, according to a new analysis from stock-trading data site Unusual Whales.  Pelosi wasn't alone, with other options-happy members of Congress among the top-performing investors.  Those included Rep. Mark Green (R-Tenn.), who logged a return of more than 122%; and Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ), who was up more than 25%.  Unlike buying individual stocks, options allow for more leverage, which means more exposure to a stock and a greater reward if a bet is right.

Politicians' trades perform twice as well as market average.  Investors dedicate countless hours to solving the mystery of how to beat the stock market[,] and many lose millions of dollars in the process.  But the answer might be simple:  Just copy Congress.  A tool which copies trades made by members of Congress and their families has gained nearly 20 percent this year — performing twice as well as the stock market average of eight to ten percent.  And a separate tool which is dedicated to tracking Nancy Pelosi's investments reveals her portfolio has returned a remarkable 50 percent in the last 12 months, vastly outperforming the 17 percent gains of the benchmark S&P500 index of America's top companies.  The tools were created by Quiver Quantitative, which uses public disclosures from members of Congress to mirror their trading activity and track the results.

Why Was San Fran Gran Nan Served a Subpoena?  Inquiring minds want to know — why was Nancy Pelosi served a subpoena, as she reported on Wednesday?  This development was acknowledged when the House Clerk read Pelosi's statement.  Pelosi reported to the House of Representatives that she was served a subpoena "to produce documents in a criminal case" in California.  It is standard procedure for a member to report being issued a subpoena related to a civil or criminal matter. [...] Pelosi has not publicly commented to which case the subpoena is connected.  The man who attacked her husband, Paul Pelosi, in a home invasion last year is set to go on trial this month but it is unclear if the subpoena has anything to do with that case.  Meanwhile, it is business as usual for San Fran Gran Nan in Washington, D.C.  She endorsed Rep. Adam Schiff in his bid for the U.S. Senate seat left vacant with the death of Senator Dianne Feinstein.  Pelosi appears in two ads for Schiff that were released Wednesday.

The 'McHenry Kicks Pelosi out' Story Gets Even More Amusing.  We wrote earlier about how one of the first orders of business for speaker pro tempore Patrick McHenry (R-N.C.) in the aftermath of the House's ousting of Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) as Speaker was to notify former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) that she needed to immediately remove her things and vacate her hideaway office.  Also, according to reports, an email sent from a House Administration Committee aide indicated the room was being redesignated "for speaker office use."  Naturally, the move prompted some wailing from Pelosi, who proclaimed that the decision was "a sharp departure from tradition."  It was kind of an ironic statement to make considering, as my colleague Bonchie noted, ousting a House Speaker — which Pelosi's fellow Democrats ultimately supported even after she allegedly told McCarthy prior to him becoming Speaker she would push back against such a move — is quite a departure from tradition as well.

The Editor says...
Let's review:  A wide-open Mexican border, multi-trillion-dollar deficits, abortion on demand, forced vaccinations, men pretending to be women, men in the women's restrooms, mail-in ballots (with no evidence they were really mailed) counted days after election day, legalized marijuana, assisted suicide, gun control, an obviously corrupt and venal president, crime without punishment, a lesbian Senator who resides in Maryland representing California, electric cars, windmills and solar panels instead of coal and natural gas, defunding the police — nearly everything in the Socialist Democrats' platform is "a sharp departure from tradition."

Hakeem Jeffries Staffers Cleaned Out Pelosi's Office, Hauled Away Her Belongings in Bags As Room Was Re-Keyed.  Acting Speaker, Rep. Patrick McHenry ordered Nancy Pelosi to vacate her Capitol hideaway office by Wednesday.  Rep. Patrick McHenry (NC) was appointed as Acting Speaker after McCarthy was ousted.  McCarthy chose McHenry as Speaker Pro Tempore earlier this year and he now has all the powers of a House Speaker.  McHenry ordered Pelosi to "immediately" vacate her private Capitol office and since she was in California attending the late Senator Dianne Feinstein's funeral, Hakeem Jeffries staffers were forced to clean out her office.  How come McCarthy never made a move like this?

Acting Speaker Patrick McHenry Orders Pelosi to Vacate Her Capitol Hideaway Office by Wednesday.  As his first act as Acting Speaker, Rep. Patrick McHenry ordered Nancy Pelosi to vacate her Capitol hideaway office by Wednesday.  Rep. Patrick McHenry (NC) was appointed as Acting Speaker after McCarthy was ousted.  McCarthy chose McHenry as Speaker Pro Tempore earlier this year and he now has all the powers of a House Speaker.  McHenry ordered former Speaker Nancy Pelosi to vacate her Capitol hideaway office pronto!

Nancy Pelosi's In-Kind Contribution To The GOP.  In announcing that she will run for reelection to the U.S. House next year, San Francisco's Nancy Pelosi made an ill-advised, out-of-touch, incredibly deranged statement.  If the Republican Party doesn't use it in a continuous loop of ads during the 2024 campaign, it will commit an egregious error.  Pelosi, regrettably House speaker on two separate occasions, declared last week her intention to seek another term in Congress, which would be her 19th.  The 83-year-old tweeted Friday that she was running because "now more than ever our City needs us to advance San Francisco values and further our recovery." [...] At one time, San Francisco, or The City, as some locals like to refer to it, as if there were no other, was one of the great cities of this country and the world.  Today it is often called "San Fransicko" because it's more urban pigsty than the charming town that it once was.  And it became that way because of "San Francisco values" — the same ones the Democrats want to inflict on the rest of the country.

Nancy Pelosi, 83, Announces 2024 Reelection Bid.  Former Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Friday that she is running for reelection in 2024 to continue representing her California district in the House.  Pelosi, 83, stepped down from her leadership role following two decades in the post.  "Now more than ever our City needs us to advance San Francisco values and further our recovery," Pelosi wrote on X.  "Our country needs America to show the world that our flag is still there, with liberty and justice for ALL.  That is why I am running for reelection -- and respectfully ask for your vote. -Nancy."  Pelosi was first elected to Congress in 1987.

Pelosi says she's running because she 'needed to be able to still raise significant money'.  Rep. Nancy Pelosi told a reporter Friday that she's mainly running for office to raise money for herself and other Democrats.  Speaking with outlet Politico, the 83-year-old representative from California said her veteran status in Congress is a major asset for raising funds.  "My focus is the House and presidency; you're in a stronger position as a candidate," Pelosi told Politico in the interview.  "You may not know this, but if you're not a candidate, you really can't raise money for yourself.  And raising money for myself enables me to spend that on other people."

The Editor says...
She cares more about money and power than anything else.  Ostensibly for the benefit of everyone but herself.  If you find that hard to believe, don't vote for her.

How Pelosi's reelection bid is upending ambitions in Sacramento.  Speaker Emerita Nancy Pelosi's decision to seek reelection next year will have cascading effects on San Francisco politics and derail campaign plans for Democrats in down-ballot races, particularly the one to replace state Sen. Scott Wiener.  Wiener had been raising money and gathering support for the possibility of Pelosi's retirement, which would have sparked a fight among San Francisco Democrats gunning for a rare open House seat.  But after Pelosi's announcement at a labor event Friday morning, the high-profile state senator switched gears, saying he will run for a third term.

Nancy Pelosi, 83 Years Old, Announces She Will Run for Re-Election.  Sure, Pelosi isn't staring blankly at the camera for 45 seconds at a time like [Mitch] McConnell has done twice in recent weeks, but the overall sentiment remains — we need younger politicians to represent us.  In this age of technological advances and information spreading literally second-by-second, sorry Nancy but an someone who will be 84 years old come the time of the election, this isn't going to cut it.  Social media let their feelings known after Pelosi's announcement on Friday as #She's83 was trending across the country in the latest example of a politician refusing to give up their power. [...] "The needs that our city [San Francisco] has right now really call for me to stay another term," she absurdly said.  Oh, San Francisco has plenty of needs alright.  But is it no coincidence that Pelosi has been in office throughout the entire downfall of the once Golden City that has turned to rust and dust?  After being first elected in 1987, the two-time Speaker of the House now refuses to step aside for perhaps a politician that actually knows what is happening on the ground and can actually make effective change.

Nancy Pelosi says the U.S. will come to an End if Trump is re-elected.  Nancy Pelosi thinks that the U.S. is doomed if Donald Trump becomes president again and says the latest indictment of the ex-President stands the best chance of getting him into prison rather than the White House.  The former House Speaker launched the war of words with Trump after claiming he looked like a 'scared puppy' during his D.C. court appearance on Thursday.  She also called the third and latest indictment against Trump 'beautiful' and said he knows he is going to have to face the music for trying to overturn the 2020 election results.

Why Is Nancy Pelosi Still in Congress?  Remember when Democrats lost the House and Nancy Pelosi announced she was no longer going to lead the Democrats, handing over leadership to New York Congressman Hakeem Jeffries?  You have to remember it, Jeffries is black and that fact had Democrats and the media pleasuring themselves over how they'd selected a "historic" first.  Well, it's been a while now and you'd be hard-pressed to find anyone who doesn't think old Nancy is still in charge of Democrats in the House.  That begs the question, why is she still there?  The deal was Nancy Pelosi would stick around for a little while to help the new leadership team understand how the House works — something wildly condescending, if you think about it — then she would resign.  Parties can only have one leader at a time, right?  Well, it's been seven months and Nancy shows not only no sign of resigning, she shows no sign if giving up control of the Democrat caucus in the House.

What no one will say out loud about Nancy Pelosi.  Nancy Pelosi's future has been the subject of whispers in her hometown since the Democrats lost the House and she stepped down from leadership.  What everyone has wanted to know — but no one was eager to say out loud, for fear of offending the speaker emerita or merely out of respect and admiration for her — is whether she intends to keep her seat.  And, if not, would she favor a chosen candidate — or throw it open to what could be a wide open primary in one of the most Democratic cities in the U.S.  At stake is not just the once-in-a-generation chance to be San Francisco's sole representative in Congress — a post Pelosi has held since 1987.  Her retirement, and the jockeying it would set off in state and local politics, would likely create open races for state Senate, Assembly and the San Francisco Board of Supervisors.

California defense team for man accused of attacking Pelosi's husband seeks to move trial from San Francisco.  The defense attorneys for David DePape, who was charged in a home invasion attack against Nancy Pelosi's husband, are seeking to move the trial from San Francisco to Eureka, Oregon.  Lawyers for the man charged in last year's attack against former U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband want his federal trial to be moved out of San Francisco, saying intense publicity means he won't get a fair trial.  David DePape is set to appear in federal court Wednesday.  His lawyers will ask the judge to move the trial to the city of Eureka, neighboring Oregon.  The federal trial is set to start Nov. 13.

Nancy Pelosi's Sudden Conversion Experience.  What I value most about MSNBC's new lineup is the ability of its hosts to do hard-hitting interviews with adverse guests.  No Fox News — like softballs here; instead we get former Biden press secretary Jen Psaki interviewing former Democratic House speaker Nancy Pelosi, and the results are every bit as explosively contentious as you would expect from two people who have been blowing kisses to one another over an explicitly shared political agenda for the last several years. (I assume it was not Psaki's bona fides as a commentator wot got her the job as the Biden administration's mouthpiece.)  Among the hard questions Psaki put to Pelosi:  Just how disappointed is she in this conservative Supreme Court? ("Are you concerned the Supreme Court has lost its legitimacy?" she boldly challenged her.)  But I'm not really here for media critique today and besides, the shameless by definition cannot be shamed.  Instead I'm here because Nancy Pelosi's lengthy response to that creampuff was a farrago of lies, cynical politicking, and howling personal hypocrisy notable even for her.

J6 Footage Shows Camera Rolling as Pelosi Made Her 'Insurrection' Exit.  Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) began January 6, 2021, by mugging for the cameras — more specifically, a camera operated by her filmmaker daughter, Alexandra Pelosi, who just happened to record every moment of her mother's movements on what would become one of the most infamous days in American history.  As a clearly tense Pelosi prepared to convene the joint session of Congress during which Republican members of the House and Senate planned to debate the Electoral College outcome in six states — Pelosi also is seen conducting a caucus video conference that morning criticizing Republican plans to delay certification — her chief of staff warned that President Trump might go to the Capitol following his noon speech at the Ellipse.  "I hope he comes, I'm gonna punch him out," she told Terry McCullough.

Never Forget: Nancy Pelosi Swore She Had "Cold Hard Evidence" of Collusion Between Russia and Trump Family — A Complete Lie.  House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi spoke out in July 2017, saying there is now "cold hard evidence" of collusion between Russia and the Trump family.  [Pelosi quote omitted for brevity.]  This was a complete lie.  She knew it was a lie.  She led the charge against President Trump for years pushing the Trump-Russia collusion that never happened.  Pelosi made these comments after a report was released of a 20 minute meeting between Trump family members and foreign officials that led to nothing.

Republicans strip $200 million meant for a park in Nancy Pelosi's district in new debt ceiling bill.  House Republicans are out with a second version of their debt ceiling bill meant to win over GOP holdouts after repeatedly insisting they would not make changes to the legislation.  Changes made during a Rules Committee hearing that went until the early hours of Wednesday morning were meant to win over some of the eight-plus holdouts whose votes are needed to get the Limit Save Grow Act through the House.  The House has now cleared a first vote on the rules for the sprawling package and is now expected to move forward with a final vote on Wednesday afternoon.

The Editor says...
With the national debt as high as it is, federally-funded parks should be out of the question.  Any park in Nancy Pelosi's crime-saturated district is just going to end up as a campground for homeless drug addicts.

Nancy Pelosi Pays $7,500 Settlement to Illinois Man Who Sued Over Getting Too Many Fundraising Text Messages.  Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has paid $7,500 to an Illinois man who sued because he was tired of getting so many fundraising text messages.  This sets an interesting precedent.  Can anyone sue politicians on this basis?  If that's the case, we're going to see a lot more lawsuits like this one.

The Editor says...
Maybe, maybe not.  Political parties probably don't send text messages to those who are not known to be in agreement with them.

Nancy Pelosi is Sorry.  She's rich, one of the wealthiest Members of Congress EVER, but that doesn't mean that Nancy Pelosi isn't going to try to milk poor suckers out of a little bit more of their credit card limit.  I honestly don't know how she lives with herself; when she's rotting in Hell maybe she will reflect on this as well as the insider trading that made her so wealthy and her lust for abortion as a "devout Catholic."  Until then, know that she's sorry.  Not for the hypocrisy, not for the graft, but for the begging.

Nancy Pelosi Heckled Big Time At The Grand Central City University Of New York Yesterday!.  Angry students taking her to task for her evil warmongering all over the world!  [Video clip]

Nancy Pelosi's Theology and Her Politics.  Nancy Pelosi has been locking horns with San Francisco's Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone.  The good archbishop forbade that Holy Communion be administered to Nancy Pelosi within his diocese wherein is her residence.  He requires that the sacrament of penance be observed for the "serious sins" of supporting abortion and homosexual behavior, including same-sex "marriage."  Besides these, Pelosi runs afoul of Catholicism for advocating that women enter the priesthood. [...] No person or church is Christian who celebrates sin.  Although all believers sin, believers are called always to repent and turn away from evil.  This is the basis for the archbishop's discipline of Pelosi.  She is celebrating sin of two types and must turn away from such sins before she's eligible to receive the Eucharist again. [...] Pelosi has options.  She can feign compliance, change to a residence outside Cordileone's diocese, receive Holy Communion at churches that turn a blind eye to recurring and unrepentant sinfulness, or repent.

If 'No One Is Above The Law,' Democrats And Their Partisan Pawns Would Be Arraigned, Not Trump.  Suspected insider trading deserves at least a second glance by federal investigators, but it looks like, so far, Nancy Pelosi and her husband Paul have gotten away with conveniently timing their stock purchases and sales to massively grow their wealth.  The same people who love lording "no one is above the law" over Americans are the ones who think they are above any semblance of oversight or law, or constitutionality.

Pelosi's Tweet Reveals the Real Intentions Behind Trump's Indictment.  [Scroll down]  Back to Pelosi's tweet.  Pelosi wrote:  "No one is above the law, and everyone has the right to a trial to prove innocence."  This is nothing short of a shocking statement, especially from a lawmaker with many decades of experience.  The presumption of innocence is the standard in any civilized democracy — anyone accused of any crime is considered innocent until proven guilty.  The legal burden of proof lies on the prosecution, which must present compelling face-based evidence to before a judge or a jury.  The prosecution must prove that the accused is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.  If reasonable doubt remains, the accused must be acquitted. [...] This remains the goal behind the exercise, to make the process the punishment.  To drag the trial along, and to drain all their resources and spirits of the accused.  To sully reputations permanently.  To make the accused feel worse than the worst of criminals in the U.S.  They know that these stories spread like wildfire and most people seeking a life of peace for themselves and their families choose to refrain from challenging the Democrats merely to avoid hardships.

Pelosi Statement on Trump: He Has the "Right to a Trial to Prove Innocence".  The American standard of justice is that the government has to prove a defendant guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.  Defendants do not have to prove anything and have a Fifth Amendment right to not be "compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law."  Pelosi's statement was posted online, "The Grand Jury has acted upon the facts and the law.  No one is above the law, and everyone has the right to a trial to prove innocence.  Hopefully, the former President will peacefully respect the system, which grants him that right." [...] Politico's Kyle Cheney fact checked Pelosi, ""Prove innocence" is not the standard in criminal matters.  The burden is on the government to prove Trump's guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, and he enjoys the presumption of innocence until that moment."

Did Nancy Pelosi direct the US Capitol Police to stand down?  The release of previously withheld January 6 video footage by House speaker Kevin McCarthy to Fox News is interesting for a number of reasons.  By broadcasting, Tucker Carlson has shed light on the propaganda fest known as the "United States House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6 Attack." The Democrats even hired a former ABC News executive to produce the cherry-picked video production and edit out inconvenient images that worked against their predetermined narrative.  One segment of the newly released video stands out: up to nine Capitol police officers were shown acting as de facto tour guides for the man dubbed the "QAnon Shaman" (Jacob Chansley) by the mainstream media.  For anyone with a law enforcement background, this scene is quite bizarre.  No competent police officer would casually stroll through a high-security building with an alleged "terrorist leader" of his own volition without a directive from his superiors.

'Like having two popes': Pelosi reportedly wielding power from behind scenes.  As the House of Representatives transitions to new leadership, former Speaker Nancy Pelosi still holds onto power behind the scenes, according to Politico.  After nearly two decades of power, Pelosi had to yield her speakership to Rep. Kevin McCarthy of California, but is still calling shots from the sidelines, Politico reported.  Fellow House Democrats are conflicted on who to look to, finding it difficult to see the former speaker as a regular member of the caucus.  It's "almost like having two popes," Democratic Rep. Dan Kildee of Michigan told Politico.  "It's actually gotten a lot better than some people would have predicted."  While Pelosi still grasps onto her power, she mostly keeps out of daily operations to allow new Democratic minority leadership to take hold, like Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries of New York and Minority Whip Katherine Clark of Massachusetts, according to Politico.

No Apologies Over Paul Pelosi.  Apologize for what? [...] So, the authorities finally got around to releasing the 911 call and bodycam footage from the Paul Pelosi hammer imbroglio, and now the left is demanding an apology from everyone who refused to accept the regime's twisted, Swiss-cheese narrative about the whole attack.  While there are still unanswered questions — which no one would be asking if the regime media had not tried to blame conservatives for the actions of the Berkely nudist — the cop body cam footage appears to show a nut and his victim and not much more.  Yeah, there was a lot of speculation early on about what really happened, partly from the fact that the stories being pushed by the regime were contradictory or incomplete or just bizarre, but mostly because we have been lied to so often that the regime no longer gets the benefit of the doubt. [...] So, in the absence of answers and a tsunami of stories that do not make sense, yeah, people are going to fill in the blanks, and it might not be pretty.

Observations on the Paul Pelosi — David DePape Videos.  On Friday three videos related to the Paul Pelosi hammer attack at the Pelosi home were released.  The entire event was weird and it just got weirder.  Three long-awaited videos came out earlier today related to the attack on Paul Pelosi in the early morning of October 28, 2022. [...] The second video jumps to a 911 call that Paul Pelosi made to authorities early that morning.  This call occurred at 2:23 am or a little more than 10 minutes after DePape entered the house.  This call sounds like a man who is calling for help.  What is very odd is that DePape is there listening to the call.  He even offers his name.

Timing of Pelosi and Memphis videos is to disrupt the news cycle.  [Scroll down]  Now let's look at the video when the two open the door to the police officers.  I was not expecting to be more confused after watching the video.  Like[,] Why answer the door if you're about to attack the guy?  Why is he just chilling there with a drink in hand?  Why is Paul Pelosi holding a drink?  Also, why wasn't the first thing Paul did is scream "he's trying to kill me, shoot him!"  Why would DePepe wait for the cops to show up to bash his head in?  Why would DePepe let Paul call 911 and talk to them?  Who opened the door for the police?  [Video clip]

Why was he smiling and holding a drink?  The dramatic police bodycam footage showing the violent attack on Paul Pelosi finally provides a glimpse of the incident which triggered a string of conspiracy theories.  A court ordered the release of the video despite protests from the San Francisco District Attorney's Office, who said it could be manipulated to spread misinformation.  Ironically, the delay in sharing the footage prompted a stream of speculation and some baseless claims about the attack.

The Paul Pelosi attack coverup was another instance of the Democrats rigging the 2022 midterms.  Just yesterday, following a court order, footage of the attack on Paul Pelosi at his San Francisco home was made public.  The details were thoroughly covered by Andrea Widberg in her recent piece.  There are open questions and no clear answers about some aspects of the occurrences that night.  The reason citizens should be concerned about it is because the incident was used to push a narrative prior to the midterm elections.  This wasn't just a few conspiracy theorists blogging from their basements, it was a Democrat and media blitzkrieg. [...] Government agencies did their bit, too.  Hours after the attack on Paul, bulletins were dispatched to law enforcement across the nation warning of a "heightened threat" of domestic violent extremism against candidates and election workers, driven by individuals with "ideological grievances."  The suppression of the police footage of the Pelosi attack was done purposefully to create a vacuum that can be filled with the right-wing insurrection narrative before the midterms, because the January 6 TV show trial was receiving no traction at all.

Paul Pelosi sold $3 million worth of Google stock a month prior to the DOJ's antitrust lawsuit.  Just yesterday the Washington Free Beacon reported that former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and her husband Paul may have used privileged information to cut their losses in the stock market.  Financial disclosure filings that Nancy submitted to the House Ethics Committee revealed that Paul sold 30,000 shares of Google worth approximately $3 million between Dec. 20 and Dec. 28.  A month later, on Jan. 24, 2023, the Justice Department and attorneys general from eight states — including Pelosi's home state of California — sued Google for monopolizing digital advertising technologies via serial acquisitions and engaging in other anti-competitive practices. [...] This trade is the latest in a string of questionable transactions by the Pelosi couple.  A Washington Free Beacon analysis revealed that the Pelosi couple have seen their fortune grow to $140 million since 2008, due to Paul's stock trades.

California Judge Orders Police Bodycam Footage of Paul Pelosi Attack Incident to Be Released, Possibly Today.  According to multiple media sources a California judge has ordered the police bodycam footage of the incident at Paul and Nancy Pelosi's home to be released to the public.  The order to the clerk of the court was made immediately on Wednesday and the released footage could come as soon as today [1/26/2023].

Nancy Pelosi's Exorcism.  Nancy Pelosi has at long last experienced a spasm of guilt over her tenure as the Best Catholic in America, America's Mother, or whatever else she calls herself to get through the day.  But it turns out she has humbled herself enough to ask for help to make things right.  Sort of.  Over the weekend we learned that the former House speaker, keeper of freezers full of expensive pints of ice cream and an ardent lover of killing babies, has now suffered so much guilt over her husband's attack at the hands of a tidy whities-wearing weirdo that she called in the services of priests to chase out the bad juju.  For some reason, the underwear story has been refashioned and retold as a hammer-wielding clothed man — even though he's an ardent nudist.

The Super Shady Coverup of the Paul Pelosi Story Is Worse Than You Thought.  Back in October, the story came, and Democrats pounced on it, pushing the narrative that some deranged Trumpster had broken into the Pelosi home and attacked the husband of the then-House Speaker in some politically motivated MAGA attack.  Of course, it was soon revealed that the attack was most definitely not a Trump supporter — but actually a left-leaning supporter of Black Lives Matter and LGBTQ causes, as well as a nudist activist who reportedly struggled with drug abuse.  Oops.  But it gets weirder.  It was initially reported that when the police came, the attacker was wearing nothing but his underwear — which was later retracted.  There was a report that there was a third unnamed individual who let the police in — which was later retracted.  Then there was the report that detailed how Pelosi opened the door for the police before returning to the interior of his home to reengage his attacker — which was later retracted, and NBC News reporter Miguel Almaguer got suspended for reporting it — even though his report matched details recorded in court documents.

The Paul Pelosi Story Has Been so Thoroughly Muzzled, News Outlets Now Sue to Get Information.  It was in late October when the dire news broke that the husband of then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had been attacked in their home with a hammer.  For a couple of weeks, the story raged, as conservative news outlets and loose-tongued Republicans were blamed as being the force behind the attack on Paul Pelosi.  But soon, details emerged that countered the initial outrage reports, and before long, the story began to rapidly fade from news cycles.  Suddenly, it went from being the story reporters could not shut up about to the story no one was allowed to discuss.  At NBC News, a report about the night of the attack was taken down entirely, with the reporter suspended as their story was memory-holed.  At the Washington Post, columnist Philip Bump forgot that he was a journalist as he delivered a screed that explained why we should not want to have the footage and other evidence from that night released to the public.

The Dignity of the House of Representatives.  As for people who sold their souls for political power, look at Pelosi and her career politician father, Thomas D'Alesandro, Jr.  Nancy has reportedly said that her father taught her from a young age that "no one is going to give you power.  You have to seize it."  Since entering the political arena, she has obviously followed and echoed her dad's advice.  History shows she has fought for as much power as she could get — like other totalitarians before her.  Her dad likely taught her the dark side of the political force as well.  An FBI background investigation on D'Alesandro ordered by President Kennedy revealed some interesting facts about this career Democrat politician.  The FBI said there were allegations that daddy D'Alesandro associated with criminal elements when he was mayor of Baltimore and when he was a congressman.  An FBI report said Pelosi's father was a "constant companion" of notorious mobster Benjamin Magliano as well as other mobsters.  Another said that her dad got payoffs from applicants to the police force and that this helped him help some of his friends.  An FBI source also said that in 1943, D'Alesandro attended a rally for the National Council of American-Soviet Friendship — a front group formed by the U.S. Communist Party.  It appears that Nancy's dad had concrete ideas on how to acquire and keep power — and who could help him do so.  Unfortunately these apparently included mobsters and communists.

The Dignity of the House of Representatives.  First, of course the fight for the speakership wouldn't have happened under Pelosi.  It wouldn't have happened under Stalin, Hitler, or Mao, either.  As my dad said about the Democrat party, the Bolsheviks never break ranks (or they're never allowed to).  For instance, a recent report says that less than 40 percent of Democrats approve of the Democrats' new House minority leader, Hakeem Jeffries — but ordinary Democrats are never asked for their opinions.

News outlets seek access to evidence in Paul Pelosi attack.  A coalition of news organizations, including The Associated Press, filed a court motion in San Francisco seeking access to evidence against the man charged in last year's attack on former U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband, Paul Pelosi.  During a Dec. 14 preliminary hearing, the San Francisco district attorney's office introduced audio and video evidence against David DePape, the man accused of attacking Paul Pelosi.  But it has refused to release the evidence to the media.  Attorneys for the coalition said in the motion filed Wednesday that "the public and press have standing to assert their rights of access to court records and proceedings."

More Proof That Nancy Pelosi Was More Responsible for J6 Riot Than Trump.  A little-noticed bill passed before Christmas shows that the U.S. Senate knows Nancy Pelosi had more to do with the U.S. Capitol breach on January 6, 2021, than anything President Trump did that day.  Indeed, Nancy Pelosi could be crowned Queen of the Mob, since her actions led to the crashing of the perimeter fences, general dysfunction, and deaths of Trump supporters that day.  Even after the one-sided January 6 Committee left Pelosi's role on the cutting room floor, there's one inescapable conclusion:  If she'd done her job, there would have been no riot, no deaths of Trump supporters, no show trials, and no political prisoners sitting in solitary confinement in a D.C. gulag for two years awaiting trial.  And there would have been no need for federal agents to "orchestrate" a riot.  Pelosi was more responsible for the marauding mob at the Capitol that day than anything President Trump did to "incite" his huge crowd of supporters — which he provably did not.

Nancy Pelosi calls House Democrats 'The greatest collection of intellect, integrity, and imagination assembled.  Just when one thinks one has heard everything, one is proven wrong.  Outgoing speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi recently wrote her last "Dear Colleague" letter to her Democrat co-conspirators/comrades.  In this missive, she stated, "During the 117th Congress, President Biden and Congressional Democrats have put forth a shining vision of justice for all.  Together, we have worked tirelessly to infuse this value into our legislative efforts.  We can all take immense pride in our achievements toward that goal, which is making a real difference in the lives of the American people."  Justice?  For all?  Tell that to all those still rotting in prison, without conviction or charge, for strolling through the People's House on January 6, 2021.  Tell that to those who were snatched from their homes in the wee hours of the morning by armed feds when a simple summons to appear would have sufficed.  Tell that to all those whose jobs were considered unessential.  Tell that to all those in the military who were discharged because they wouldn't accept an experimental substance into their bodies.  Tell that to all those who have lost loved ones to violent crime, rates of which skyrocketed in the past two years due to Democrat policies — or to those who have lost loved ones to fentanyl because Democrats absolutely refuse to police our southern border.  And tell it to America's rapidly dwindling middle class, beset by historic inflation, supply chain problems, and rising taxes.

Our government is failing us.  Despite the utter failure of government to perform its most basic tasks, those in it often grow fabulously wealthy.  Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is perhaps the best-known example.  Her net worth has been estimated at approaching $200 million — impressive, given a $220,000 annual salary.  Much of her wealth is attributable to investments by her husband, Paul, who has managed to successfully invest over the years in companies affected by congressional laws, regulations and subsidies. [...] The same people making huge sums of money for themselves are profligate and criminally wasteful with ours.  Congress now routinely passes spending bills that rack up trillions of dollars in expenditures, including hundreds of billions given to foreign countries.  These bills are thousands of pages long, with only hours allowed to read them — which means that representatives and senators who vote to pass them haven't even read them.  In any other profession, that would be actionable malpractice.

Pelosi Reaches Into Taxpayer Pockets On Her Way Out as Speaker.  Even as the year draws to an end, soon-to-be-former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi takes another swipe against American taxpayers.  For the second time this year, she's raised the ceiling on how much House staffers can make.  Funny how she waited to make the announcement until the last working day of the year, a time when Congress is in recess. [...] In August 2021, Pelosi raised the maximum salary for House staffers to $199,300, up from $173,900.  Earlier this year, she once again raised staffers' maximum pay to $203,700.  I don't know about you, but I'd be pretty darned happy with these two raises.  I certainly wouldn't be clamoring for more money so soon.  Not that the staffers needed to.  Yesterday, Pelosi raised the ceiling again.  This time to $212,100.  If my math's right, that means a possible $38,000 raise in less than two years.

The Editor says...
Yes, but now those are inflated dollars, so $38,000 in California will just barely buy an industrial-size refrigerator full of gourmet ice cream.  Right, Nancy?

Nancy Pelosi Departs Position After Raising Pay for House Staff to $212,000.  Departing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi raised the maximum rate that lawmakers can pay House staff for a second time this year, totaling $212,000.  Earlier this year, Pelosi issued a directive that raised the pay rate from $199,300 to $203,700.  She also issued the minimum salary pay for House staff of $45,000.  Pelosi defended her action, saying that it would help Congress retain quality staff who might potentially look for outside opportunities from private employers.

Text and Email Evidence that Pelosi Staffers Secretly Decreased Security at US Capitol for Jan 6.  Rogan O'Handley posted a text message from Nancy Pelosi's staff secretly editing the J6 security plan for the US Capitol and then telling the House Sergeant at Arms to "please act surprised" when the final draft was published.  The House Sergeant at Arms responded, "I'm startled!" to the request showing his willingness to play along.  This is more evidence that the January 6 disruptions were planned in advance.  [Tweet]

24 Hours in Nancy Pelosi's District Will Kill You - This is NOT America.  Democrat rule has destroyed California.  We travelled to the district of the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, to see what life is like for her constituents.  What we found not only shocked us, but put our own lives in danger.  [Video clip]

Speaker Pelosi to Release President Trump's Tax Records for No Legal or Constitutional Reason on Friday.  Nancy Pelosi hates President Trump because he crushed her in every way.  Now the old corrupt America-destroying Rep. from San Francisco is dropping her last corrupt action on the country and against President Trump.  Nancy Pelosi was for one group of people during her corrupt reign as Speaker of the House.  The bumbling evil woman was all-in for her family and [not] with the rest.  Her family made millions in the markets based on insider information she gave to them.  Her husband Paul made millions while she was Speaker.  Investors began following him because he never picked a loser in the markets.  When Paul was unable to go with her on a recent trip to Taiwan she brought her son.  She had him join in a secret 'off the record' meeting in Taiwan.

Pelosi Gets Heated Over Simple Question All Americans Deserve to Know Answer to.  Outgoing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi won re-election last month for the 18th time last month.  She's been serving in the House since assuming office in June, 1987.  But will she continue to serve for another two years, completing the term of the 118th Congress?  Don't ask me.  Don't ask her, either — it's not a question she wants to answer, apparently.  Reporters who didn't know that, if there were any, found out during a Thursday news conference when someone had the audacity to bring it up.

Pelosi Packs It in as Leader, Unveils Tribute to Herself - Let the Memes Begin.  The Republicans won the House during the midterms and perhaps one of the most important results of that is that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) will no longer be the Speaker when the new Congress is sworn in, in January.  Pelosi was long past her prime (if she was ever in it) some years back and it's been a horror show not just to deal with the horrible policies that she was willing to sign aboard, but all of her other issues as well.  If I had to hear her lie and say one more time, "It's for the children," I think I would have screamed.  But it was a great thing to hear her say it was her last testimony that she would be making in a leadership role on Tuesday.  [Tweet]

Son of Paul Pelosi Attacker Just Torched the Liberal Media's Narrative About the Assault.  It seems forever since David DePape hammered Paul Pelosi in one of the most bizarre home invasions ever to occur on American soil.  The attack unfolded in late October.  DePape broke into the home, though there is no evidence of forced entry.  The police body cameras are not being released, nor is the footage collected by the Pelosi residence security cameras.  DePape, who wore nothing but underwear, just waltzed into the home armed with hammers and attacked Mr. Pelosi, who was also able to abscond to the bathroom to make an emergency call, describing DePape as a "friend."  Also, Mr. Pelosi was the one who let officers in before DePape reportedly hit him on the head with a hammer, which required brain surgery.  The liberal media was off to the races, seeing QAnon postings from DePape and trying to make the right-wing lunatic narrative come alive, but it quickly died on the vine.  For starters, DePape is an illegal alien who suffers from mental illness — he tried to buy a birdhouse for a fairy he was in contact with daily.  He had rantings about the 2020 election, so you can see how the media was hoping this guy was a conservative.  He isn't based on the paraphernalia at his alleged home, which was decorated with ANTIFA, BLM, and gay pride flags.

Paul Pelosi 911 audio, body cam video aired at David DePape preliminary hearing.  After hours of testimony including 911 call audio and police body cam video, David DePape was ordered Wednesday to stand trial on all charges stemming from the terrifying October home-invasion assault of Paul Pelosi.  Superior Court Judge Stephen Murphy determined there was enough evidence to move forward with prosecution on all state charges, including attempted murder.  Murphy ordered DePape is due back in state court on Dec. 28 for formal arraignment.  During Wednesday's preliminary hearing, prosecutors used 911 audio, police body cam video and investigators sworn testimony to meticulously pieced together the case against the accused assailant.

Dementia: 2022's Word of the Year.  Dementia can manifest itself with childlike behaviors, as when Biden threatens to punch people, or when Pelosi petulantly ripped up President Trump's State of the Union speech.  Indeed, Nancy Pelosi is almost as incoherent as Biden, the Australian's Foreign Editor Greg Sheridan observed.  Her MSM minions can't protect her by claiming this recent video was doctored — just see the closed captions.  Her 2022 press conferences were almost as uncomfortable as Biden's befuddling presentations.  Incoherence manifested from dementia were also evident when she confoundedly conveyed that tax cuts are unpatriotic, or that Trump's DACA proposal was subterfuge to make America white again.  Her communication and reasoning skills were questionable when she impulsively arranged for a photo on the Capitol steps (and then doctored it) to commemorate white men no longer representing a majority of the Democrat caucus.  Those suffering from dementia often become suspicious of those around them, accusing them of improper behavior.  After her sexist disparaging of white guys trying to negotiate an immigration deal, petulant Pelosi bizarrely claimed that Dreamers — otherwise known as young illegal immigrants who commit disproportionately more crime — make America more American.

Nancy Pelosi Picture With Capitol Press Corps Causes a Stir and Produces Some Hilarious Memes.  Nancy Pelosi is headed out the door as Speaker of the House after serving two four-year stints crushing American freedoms and prosperity.  Instead of treating her tenure like the disaster it was, though, the Capitol press corps is doing exactly what you'd expect.  Namely, idolizing Pelosi and treating her like a celebrity.  That led to a farewell picture that is causing a stir, and more importantly, leading to some hilarious memes.

NBC's Mystery of the Week: Where in the world is Miguel Almaguer after Pelosi-report retraction?  NBC News' Miguel Almaguer was last seen on the Today show nearly a month ago, giving an update on the Paul Pelosi assault story.  At the time, Almaguer's sources within San Francisco law enforcement told him that body-cam records showed Pelosi opening the door when police arrived, and then walking back toward his assailant:  [Video clip]  NBC News later retracted the story, but didn't explain what Almaguer got wrong.  Almost two weeks later, the local NBC affiliate confirmed Almaguer's initial reporting: [...] The feds don't want to correct the record in their indictment for a reason.  They don't want to have to raise that question in court, or in the court of public opinion either.  Why?  We certainly can speculate on that point.  Apparently, NBC News felt the same way after Almaguer's report.  They retracted it within hours, even though it turned out to be entirely accurate, and Almaguer hasn't been seen on air since. [...] One has to wonder whether NBC News is stuck in a position where they have to keep Almaguer sidelined indefinitely.  They clearly don't want to explain themselves or their actions.  NBC suspended him for reporting what turned out to be true, but which NBC mysteriously claimed didn't meet their "standards."  Presumably, truth isn't a standard at NBC News.

Pelosi Gets Worse as She Gets Ready to Leave Congress.  The woman has made a fortune in "public service," seeing her family's net worth skyrocket to somewhere between $200 and $300 million while she "fought hard for the poor."  (Can't help but notice how she never cut them a check...)  While the Pelosi fortune will last for generations, ensuring her kids and grandkids will have no need to work, leaving them free to "pursue their passions" or simply be degenerates, your family probably won't have that luxury.  Small dollar donors to Democrat politicians won't have that luxury either, yet this outgoing Speaker is still desperate to milk them for all they're worth.  Imagine being someone so gross that they'd ask people of modest means to go into credit card debt so you could fund a vanity project. [...] Nancy Pelosi has no such dignity gene.  She has started the "Pelosi Legacy Fund," a way for her to continue to milk her considerable fundraising list of money which she will be able to use to play king-maker and pay her travel expenses and much more for the rest of her life.  You didn't expect her to pay for her lifestyle out of her own pocket, did you?

After Nancy Pelosi: Now What?  I don't know about you, but I just feel relieved that Nancy Pelosi has stepped down from leadership of the House Democrats. [...] Who cares if Nancy Pelosi was not a great legislator?  She did not become House Speaker to craft great legislation.  She was there to ram through big government spending bills that distributed loot and plunder to Democrat voters and powerful interests and approved activists.  Her crowning achievement, if you will, was to ram through ObamaCare, forcing moderate Democrats to vote for it, even though many of them lost their seats in the 2010 midterms.  And Republicans don't dare repeal it.  My only question is whether Nancy Pelosi understands this.  Does she know that all she ever did was 1) insult Republicans as gun nuts wanting to rob senior citizens of their Social Security and Medicare benefits, and 2) ram through spending bills to distribute loot and plunder to her supporters?

The Pelosi attack story just keeps getting weirder and weirder.  The attack on Nancy Pelosi's husband Paul in their San Francisco home last month was already a very weird story.  And it's only gotten weirder.  In addition to conflicting testimony and contradictory reports, we've also seen reports of an unidentified individual reportedly posing as a federal immigrations officer trying to gain access to the suspect:  [Tweet]  Now the federal government is claiming that the unidentified man was actually a federal agent, but that local San Francisco authorities just didn't let him in?

Why Did the DOJ Lie About the Paul Pelosi Attack?  The attack on Paul Pelosi, outgoing Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's husband, has largely receded into the background of the news cycle.  Weeks before the 2022 mid-terms, though, it burst into the national consciousness and was quickly presented as another marker of just how dangerous "right-wing extremism" is.  It didn't matter that the attacker was a nudist protester who lived in a leftwing commune adorned with Black Lives Matter and LGBT effects.  The fact that he had allegedly dabbled in some alt-right materials online was enough to hang him on Republicans and Republicans alone. [...] Never let a crisis go to waste, though, right?  And while former Obama flunky Rahm Emmanuel may have coined the phrase, it has apparently been adopted by the DOJ.  As RedState reported, AG Merrick Garland's outfit apparently lied about the circumstances of the attack.  That denial even led to an NBC News reporter being suspended for what now appears to have been a truthful report. [...] The issue is the DOJ lying about it, quelling "conspiracy theories" that weren't conspiracy theories.  What could possibly be the justification for that?  Obviously, the DOJ had the bodycam footage from the start.  The FBI was on the ground almost immediately, and that would have been one of the first things they viewed.

Nancy, We Knew Ye Too Well.  Has Nancy Pelosi really been the Democrats' House leader for only 20 years?  It feels longer than that.  As disappointing as this year's election was, the fact that we no longer will be exposed to Ms. Pelosi is a big plus.  And her successor will likely be an out radical, as opposed to a camouflaged radical.  So that could be helpful.  Others will offer more nuanced political commentary, but to me it seems that Nancy leaves a dual legacy.  First, she pioneered the tactic of drafting 1,000-page bills in secret and voting on them 24 hours later.  Remarkably, no one in the liberal commentariat had any problem with this.

What in the wide, wide world of sports is going on with the Paul Pelosi story?  I know they're going to try to run out the clock on this so they can pull the "What does it matter?" card when Speaker Nancy Pelosi no longer wields Thor's hammer, but we've had to deal with how many years of this woman's arrogance and running roughshod over truth, decency, justice, and the American way?  Oh, no, no no.  Inquiring minds have had it up to HERE and it's time for public questioning and open discussion, even if we're short on answers at the end. [...] Initially reported at the police press conference as an "unknown person" opening the door for officers — leading everyone to question "Who's this 3d person?" — it was later clarified that Paul Pelosi himself opened the door.  Who then walked away from officers, back to DePape, his about-to-become assailant.  From that point forward the whole story goes to black[.]  A veritable information blockade was thrown up, apparently through the concerted and targeted efforts of the Pelosis, the media machine, command elements of the San Franciso Police Department and Department of Justice, with intense pressure applied to squelch any further discussion outside of the tightly controlled narrative Nancy Pelosi is dribbling to acceptable outlets.

Nancy Pelosi [is] Headed to [the] Stock Trading Hall of Fame.  Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Thursday that she would retire from House leadership.  She has earned a spot in history for breaking barriers, succeeding in what was formerly a man's world, and advancing a left-wing agenda more effectively than nearly any individual in American politics.  But the Breitbart Business Digest believes Pelosi's career ought to be defined in a different way:  She is the most infamous — and one of the most successful — stock traders of all time.  Her personal wealth has soared to nine figures and beyond since the financial collapse of 2008.  This is largely attributed to stock trades made by her husband, Paul; and those trades were often concentrated in businesses and industries propped up by Nancy's political policies.  As famously documented by Breitbart Senior Contributor Peter Schweizer, Nancy Pelosi's stances shifted consistently as her family made money.  Currently — and thanks in part to the Speaker herself — most, if not all, of this appears to be legal.

Good Riddance, Madame Speaker.  [Nancy Pelosi] leaves behind a trail of tokens — remarks and phrases and images — that future generations, if they're moved to do so, can trace to find what there is to find of the real Nancy Pelosi.  Among these many tokens, let's think of three.  The most famous is the deathless remark she made not long before the House of Representatives passed the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in March 2010.  "We have to pass the bill," she said, "so you can find out what's in it."  The sentence belongs on her monument, if she gets one.  It was her answer to complaints that the ACA, as it quivered its way by peristalsis through the lower intestines of congressional subcommittees and closed-door mark-ups, had grown too cumbersome, too complicated for ordinary people to comprehend its effects or even its intentions.  She chose to answer the complaint by agreeing with it — and adding an implicit shrug: "What d'ya expect?"  The remark was so honest and transparent and true — "saying the quiet part out loud," we'd call it today — that her publicists in the press quickly tried to explain it away.  Pelosi, they said, was merely making a point about the tide of public opinion, which ran against the ACA: Only when the bill had become law could the mass of little people be dazzled by the glories revealed within, and then change their opinion of it, from skepticism to gratitude.

Body-Cam Footage Confirms Paul Pelosi Opened Door for Police, Contradicts DOJ Account.  Newly revealed body-cam footage reportedly contradicts the Department of Justice's account of the sequence of events that led up to the attack on Paul Pelosi, the husband of outgoing Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, confirming that Pelosi opened the door for the police officers who responded to the 911 call he placed from his residence.  While the DOJ claimed in an indictment filed on November 9 that the officers opened the door themselves, body-cam footage viewed by the San Francisco district attorney's office confirms that it was Pelosi who let them into the home, a source who personally viewed the footage told the NBC Bay Area Investigative Unit.

This sounds like December 1963, when only a few reporters were allowed to view the Zapruder film and then describe (or lie about) what they saw.  The taxpayers paid for the body cameras.  Just show us the footage!

Nancy Pelosi's legacy — spending a colossal amount of money.  Nancy Pelosi, who announced she would not continue as the Democratic Party's leader in the House of Representatives, has been a great legislator.  You'd have to be to last for 19 years at the top of the Democratic legislative greasy pole.  That doesn't mean she has been a great font of ideas, a great visionary, or a great leader of the American people.  She has been none of those things.  Her own contributions to this country on matters of policy, rather than shepherding or opposing bills in the House, have been negligible.  She was impotent when it came to dealing with an anti-Semitic outbreak in her caucus in 2019, for example.  And she descended into childishness to match her target's behavior when she ripped up Donald Trump's State of the Union speech as she sat behind him in 2020. But fair is fair.  She has proved herself a political technician of immense skill.  And if you like the game of politics, you have to enjoy someone who plays it masterfully even if she's on a team you dislike.

Pelosi heading out, Pelosi dynasty to begin?  Now that Democrats have lost the House, longtime House speaker Nancy Pelosi has said she is reassessing her future and will make an announcement today. [...] Instead of passing the gavel in a great display of democratic continuity, that peaceable democratic change of power Democrats are so fond of touting these days, Pelosi's plan seems to be to resign now, citing her husband's health following an atrocious hammer attack by a drug-addled bum and illegal alien.  No passing the gavel to a much-loathed Republican for her.  She'd rather not finish her term than pass the gavel to, horrors, a Republican.  She can let Hakeem Jeffries, reportedly in line for the House minority leader slot, do that.  But this being Nancy Pelosi, power will not be left on the table.  She'd like to go, but for her, giving up power is anathema.  What better than to leave it all in the family, where it's already been for two generations so far, and continue the enterprise, bigger and better than ever?

Bay Area NBC station is running report questioning the circumstances of Paul Pelosi's hammer attack.  NBC News is under mounting pressure to explain its actions after suspending star reporter Miguel Almaguer over one of his Today show segments on the Paul Pelosi hammer attack.  It took the action despite a second report on the company-owned-and-operated NBC Bay Area station that repeats many of the same points in Almaguer's report.  National correspondent Almaguer quoted sources saying the husband of House Speaker Nancy did not immediately declare an emergency when he answered the door to police at the couple's San Francisco home following a 911 call.

Feds and SF DA disagree on who opened the door to the Pelosi house, yet NBC reporter is suspended.  The federal indictment of David DePape, accused attacker of Paul Pelosi, is in direct contradiction of court filings by the San Francisco District Attorney on the question of who opened the door:  police or Paul Pelosi?  [Video clip]  Yet, just yesterday, The Daily Beast reported that NBC Today show correspondent Miguel Almaguer was suspended pending an internal investigation after NBC News was compelled to retract his reporting regarding the brutal assault on Paul Pelosi.  In his report, Almaguer claimed Paul Pelosi did not immediately declare an emergency or try to leave his home, but instead began walking several feet back into the foyer toward the assailant and away from the police.  Almaguer also wondered Paul why didn't try to flee or tell responding officers he was in distress.  Almaguer also cited court documents which state that, when the officer asked what was going on, the assailant David DePape smiled and said 'everything's good' but in moments a struggle ensued where the police saw DePape strike Paul Pelosi in the head with a hammer.  [Tweet]

Congresswoman for life:
Pelosi Steps Down from Leadership, Will Continue Serving in Congress.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Thursday she will step down from her leadership role after two decades in the post.  "I will not seek re-election to Democratic leadership in the next Congress," Pelosi said.  The first female speaker added that she will continue to represent the people in San Francisco in the House.  The California lawmaker will relinquish her position as head of the Democratic caucus, which she's held for 19 years, to make way for a "new generation to lead."

Pelosi claims 'disgraceful' Republicans being 'disrespectful' to her after attack on husband got Dems midterm votes.  Nancy Pelosi doesn't like criticism or even questions and won't tolerate them, as we know from the countless times she's lashed out at the media, especially this year, right to their faces for daring to challenge her on anything.  The media, of course, immediately tuck tail and seek forgiveness for daring to transgress.  And that is the behavior she demands from everyone.  So it's not a huge surprise that she considered it "ridiculous" and "disrespectful" of Republican candidates to not lay down their arms and quit campaigning because a nutjob commie attacked her husband.  Or asked questions about whether it might be the case that Republicans perhaps didn't collectively hold the wacko homeless hammer as one.

NBC News Suspends Reporter for Retracted Paul Pelosi Story.  NBC Today show correspondent Miguel Almaguer has been suspended pending an internal investigation after NBC News had to retract his reporting that inflamed right-wing conspiracy theories about the brutal assault on Paul Pelosi, Confider has learned.  In an on-air report that went viral soon after it aired Almaguer suggested Nancy Pelosi's husband was not in danger when cops arrived at their San Francisco home.  "After a 'knock and announce,' the front door was opened by Mr. Pelosi.  The 82-year-old did not immediately declare an emergency or tried to leave his home but instead began walking several feet back into the foyer toward the assailant and away from police," Almaguer reported on the morning of November 4.  "It's unclear if the 82-year-old was already injured or what his mental state was, say sources."  Hours later, the report — which was based on an unnamed source seemingly contradicting the claims of both prosecutors and police — was retracted and video of the segment was scrubbed from NBC's website.

Key Detail Changed in New Filing Against Alleged Paul Pelosi Attacker.  Authorities are now saying that Paul Pelosi did not open the door to the Pelosi residence when police officers arrived in late October, a change from before. [...] San Francisco Police Chief William Scott told reporters on Oct. 28 that officers did not open the door.  "So when the officers arrived and knocked on the front door of the residence this morning, the door was opened by someone inside and the officers observed through the open door Mr. Pelosi and the suspect, Mr. DePape, inside the entryway of the home," he said.  Some news outlets reported that a third person was inside and opened the door, but authorities later clarified that only two people — Paul Pelosi and DePape — were inside.  Jenkins has also said that there was no security present when DePape allegedly broke into the residence and woke Paul Pelosi up.  Authorities have refused to release the bodycam footage from the responding officers and any 911 calls connected to the incident.

How does the public benefit from bodycams on every cop, if the resulting footage is released only when it is advantageous to the cops?

The Paul Pelosi Attack [is] Looking More And More Like An Election False Flag.  As most that follow politics know, soon-to-be former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's Husband Paul was attacked early Friday morning, resulting in hospitalization and brain surgery after taking a hammer to the head by the assailant, 42 year old David DePape.  Those are the facts.  If those facts seem to be awful thin it is because a number of things were instantly reported about the attack, with the media claiming almost immediately that DePape was a "right-winger," extremist, who ran two blog sites with conspiracy and "right-wing" rhetoric, all suggesting the attack was politically motivated, until more information was revealed.  This is where everything gets strange.  The man lived in what has been referred to as a "hippie" commune, had Black Lives Matter signs, anti-capitalism signage, and another bumper sticker with the definition of liberal on it and a slap to conservatives. [...] As shown above, the more news that comes out about this attack, and the alleged assailant, the more questions pop up.  At this point there are more questions than answers to the entire episode.

About Those Three Bizarre Media Retractions in the Paul Pelosi Story.  [Scroll down] We don't know what happened that night and probably never will.  According to early reports, DePape intends to plead not guilty and has yet to tell his side of the story.  Here's what we do know:  If the 911 call or surveillance video of body cam footage were released, it would clear up a lot.  But local Democrat authorities won't release it, which is odd.  One thing the public is used to is seeing the footage and hearing 911 calls in a high-profile case.  But these are the same authorities who refuse to release body cam footage of Mr. Pelosi's DWI arrest in June.  I also suspect that if the audio and video proved beyond any doubt that the Approved Narrative was accurate and would, therefore, damage the Republican party one week before an election, that audio and video would be all over TV and social media on a 24-hour loop.  Here's the other thing:  We know the police dispatcher said Mr. Pelosi referred to DePape as a friend.  We also know that all three reports that were later retracted make it sound like DePape was indeed a friend and that another "friend" was present.  We know the Pelosi home had monitored security, and the media do not seem very interested in that fact.  No one's asking why an alarm didn't sound after a window was supposedly smashed in.  Maybe the windows weren't alarmed.  That in itself would be odd for the home of a grotesquely wealthy, high-profile politician.

Rumor Has It Nancy Pelosi May Be Forced to Step Down After Midterms.  Rumor has it a red wave is taking over Congress, and Democrats are panicking.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi reportedly plans to step down from her position if that just so happens to be true, with her daughter in line to take over for Pelosi.  Christine Pelosi, a Democrat activist, has remained at her mother's side for most of her political events, even writing a book on "America's Most Powerful Woman" in 2019.  If the plan to replace Pelosi with her daughter becomes reality, that would make her the third generation to serve in Congress.

Report: Nancy Pelosi To Retire After She Loses Majority; Her Radical Daughter Christina Is Reportedly Set To Replace Her.  Already, rumors have swirled that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca.) could step down when Republicans likely retake control of the House in the upcoming midterm elections.  Pelosi's new district, California's 11th Congressional district, would be a highly coveted seat for Democrats who are interested in replacing her as it is a D+37 district, according to the Cook Political Report, making it one of the safest Congressional seats in the country for the Democrat who wins the nomination.  Nancy Pelosi's daughter, Christine Pelosi, has already been floated as a viable option to replace Nancy.  Christine is a left-wing activist and Democratic political strategist who has served as the Women's Caucus Chair of the California Democratic Party and as an Assistant District Attorney in San Francisco.

A seat in the U.S. Congress is not a family heirloom, to be passed from one generation to the next.

Prosecutors refuse to release police bodycam and surveillance footage from Pelosi's house at sealed court hearing.  Prosecutors in San Francisco are refusing to release police bodycam and surveillance footage from the home of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her husband Paul during the attack on the congresswoman's husband last week.  District Attorney Brooke Jenkins — a Democrat who defeated 'woke' DA Chesa Boudin in a recall earlier this year — refused to release details beyond what was already in court filings, including video of the attack.  'Mr. Pelosi opened the door, they were both holding a hammer and the police observed Mr. DePape pull that hammer away and then strike Mr. Pelosi,' Jenkins said Thursday.  That is the most that we're going to say at this point.  Our job is not to try this case in the public or in the press.  It's to try it in a courtroom.'

Nancy Pelosi Speaks on Camera for [the] First Time Since [her] Husband's Attack.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has spoken on camera for the first time about her husband, Paul Pelosi's condition after he was attacked in their home last week.  Pelosi opened a 28-minute video about the upcoming midterm election by giving a brief update about her husband, who returned to their residence from the hospital on Thursday.  "Thank you, thank you, thank you for kind words, your prayers, and your good wishes for Paul," Pelosi said.  "It's going to be a long haul, but he will be well.  And, it's just so tragic how it happened, but nonetheless, we have to be optimistic.  He's surrounded by family, so that's a wonderful thing," she said.  Paul Pelosi, 82, was released from Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital about one week after he was attacked inside his home.

Paul Pelosi Had A Brush With Death.  Here's Why We're Not Crying.  Democrats and their little media friends are beside themselves that right-wingers aren't in mourning over the very strange — shut up, don't ask! — attack on Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband.  They've all seemed to have forgotten how they treated everyone over the past three years.  To recap, 82-year-old Paul Pelosi was hospitalized last week after a man in his house attacked him with a hammer.  At this point, that is literally the only thing that everyone agrees happened, since the story keeps changing.  To wit, NBC's "Today" aired a segment Friday morning billed as an "exclusive" with "new details" about the assault.  And then NBC deleted the segment from its website and from its Twitter account, claiming that, "The piece should not have aired because it did not meet NBC News reporting standards."

Media propagandists become more brazen as the midterms approach.  Just yesterday, NBC News broadcast a report by Miguel Almaguer about the attack on Paul Pelosi[.] [...] The report appears consistent with what was seen in the initial police report, cited by Deadline Hollywood [elsew]here.  But within hours, the report was taken down with an editor's note claiming that "This piece has been removed from publication because it did not meet NBC News reporting standards." [...] It seems Miguel Almaguer's report on NBC News could have disturbed the campaign narrative of Republicans being behind the attack, rather than what it was, which was an attack by a leftist drug-addict, so the report was summarily removed.  This has been done before when the Democrat narrative was challenged.

Here's Why NBC News Deleted a Report on the Paul Pelosi Attack.  [Scroll down] After trying to memory-hole the report, NBC applied a strange note to the now-unplayable video's page:  "The piece should not have aired because it did not meet NBC News reporting standards."  As some on Twitter pointed out, mainstream outlets reporting new information, then quickly and quietly trying to pretend they didn't report it, does not do much to help assuage those who think there's more to the story than is being explained.  [Tweet]  Authorities still say they will not release body-worn camera footage from the responding officers — which would quickly clear up the disparity between what Almaguer reported and what the FBI affidavit stated — nor the 911 call Pelosi placed.  The U.S. Capitol Police have also said they are not planning to release footage their cameras recorded the night of the break-in.

NBC Broadcasts, Then Deletes, a Report From San Francisco That Directly Contradicts FBI Statement About Pelosi Attack.  Something sketchy is going on here.  NBC aired a report on the attack against Paul Pelosi that directly contradicts the FBI affidavit of the events when police arrived at the Pelosi home.  NBC then deleted the broadcast report from Twitter and their website saying it "did not meet their journalistic standard."  It's worth noting the contradiction stems from the FBI report written by FBI Agent Stephanie Minor, who is relatively new to the FBI: [...] Why would the FBI use such a junior agent for such a high-profile case?  It seemed odd when the FBI affidavit was released.  The NBC broadcast says that Paul Pelosi opened the door, didn't declare an emergency... and then walked back to his attacker and was attacked.  NBC Scrubbed this report, but not before it was captured on the internet.  [Video clip]

NBC News pulls report claiming Paul Pelosi didn't indicate 'emergency' to cops.  NBC News pulled a report Friday that claimed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband didn't let on that he was in any danger when cops showed up at his home just prior to the hammer attack on him.  The now-deleted clip said Paul Pelosi, 82, answered the door for cops who responded to a 911 call at the San Francisco home, but the officers were "seemingly unaware they had been called to the home of the speaker of the House."  Pelosi didn't "declare an emergency" or try to leave, but instead walked several feet back into the foyer toward armed attacker David DePape, who had broken into the home last Friday and was carrying a hammer, sources told NBC.  The report, which cited sources familiar with the matter, said it wasn't clear what Pelosi's mental state was or if he had already been hurt.

NBC: Paul Pelosi walked away from police before hammer attack.  What actually transpired at the Pelosi household last week?  We know the basics: a nutcase attacked an elderly man and nearly killed him after breaking into the house.  We also know that Joe Biden and fellow Democrats have attempted to graft this attack onto their midterm "democracy in peril" messaging, including Biden's national address this week, while simultaneously attempting to tamp down discussion of the facts of the case.  However, NBC offers new details this morning on the police response before the attack — and Paul Pelosi's curious reaction to it, at least at first.  According to their sources, Pelosi himself opened the door when police arrived, and rather than walk out, began to walk back toward assailant David DePape.  DePape even assured police that everything was "good," which — given the broken window — police clearly didn't believe.  Only then did the hammer attack occur, prompting an immediate response from the surprised officers, according to NBC:  [Tweet] [...] Body-cam video and the police reports would be helpful in this case to suss out the answers to the questions raised.  At the moment, though, those are not available — and may not be for a long time.  As David Strom wrote yesterday, the media doesn't seem interested in digging deeper into the oddities of this case, and in fact are casting aspersions on anyone looking for some actual journalism in this case as conspiracy-theory kooks.

Media Narrative on Pelosi Attack is 'Morally Outrageous': Experts.  In an election year that has Democrats often using the "extremist" label on the GOP to distract from the country's economic problems, experts say that the rush by mainstream media to blame "right-wing extremism" for the attack on the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calf.), has actually harmed the Democrats[.]  This summer the Democrats used the Jan. 6 Committee hearings, amplified by the media, to highlight the "danger to democracy" that the GOP allegedly poses to the country.  But one observer said that the quickness with which some media outlets alleged that the attack on Paul Pelosi was the result of a conservative obsession — before more detail about the alleged assailant came to light — betrayed an underlying agenda.  "It would have behooved them to just wait [and get the facts], but instead they have painted an entire part of the country, everybody, as an extremist" over the attack, Carla Miller, national spokesperson for Law Enforcement Today, the largest law enforcement-owned media company in the United States, told The Epoch Times.

NBC Retracts Report That Exposed New Details in Pelosi-Attack Investigation.  NBC News reported significant new details in the investigation into last week's attack on Paul Pelosi on Friday — and then promptly retracted the report as soon as those details began circulating online.  In a Today Show segment that aired Friday morning [11/4/2022], NBC News anchor Miguel Almaguer reported that Pelosi reacted in an unusual way to the arrival of police officers after calling 911 because a deranged, underwear-clad man had broken into his house and was searching for his wife, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.  "The front door was opened by Mr. Pelosi.  He did not declare an emergency or try to leave his home, instead began walking several feet back towards the assailant and away from police," Almaguer reported, citing "sources familiar with what unfolded in the Pelosi residence."  [Tweet]  Hours after the segment aired live on NBC, it was deleted from the Today Show website and an editor's note was appended to the page.  "The piece should not have aired because it did not meet NBC News reporting standards," the editor's note reads.

Paul 'Jussie Smollett' Pelosi — and Questions You Aren't Allowed to Ask.  The whole thing has a Jussie Smollett feel to it, to be honest, where everything "reported" fits perfectly into what Democrats need it to be and the truth, as is always the case with these people, isn't even a consideration.  The second the story was reported came word the alleged attacker was asking "Where's Nancy?" Democrats in the media immediately seized on that to tie it to Jan. 6th, because everything is Jan. 6th to them.  But how would they have heard he said "Where's Nancy?"  If there were only 2 people there — Paul and the attacker — which one told police or reporters he was walking around saying that?  Was it the man arrested for the attack or the guy with the multiple skull fractures who needed emergency surgery?  Most likely it was neither.  At some point after Nov. 8th asking questions will become semi-legal again and the truth will come out.  We'll likely learn that never happened.  Maybe it was just a couple of Nigerian brothers paid by check to do it, who knows?  Nancy Smollett anyone?  What we do know is we aren't allowed to ask questions, peons that we are, and the people with the job of asking questions and being skeptical of "official" stories are the ones insisting anyone doing what is literally their job is somehow a conspiracy theorist.  Journalism was always pathetic, now it's gotten worse.

WaPo: hide the evidence.  Democracy Dies from Knowledge™.  Spread the Darkness™.  The Truth Hurts™.  Pick a slogan.  Philip Bump of the Washington Post argues that releasing the video from the Paul Pelosi break in/assault would only fuel conspiracy theories.  Best to stick to the official Narrative™ so that we plebs don't get any uppity ideas that we aren't being told the truth.  He actually, truly, 100% no kidding is arguing that the evidence should be hidden, as any great reporter would.  In other news, Bump argues that Jeffrey Epstein killed himself, there were no actual human trafficking victims in the crimes for which Ghislain Maxwell was convicted, and the tooth fairy really does leave money behind if you put your tooth under the pillow.

11 Years Ago, Democrats Got Everything Wrong.  They Are Doing It Again.  Last Friday, a crazy hippie drug addict who lived in a broken-down bus broke into the home of Nancy and Paul Pelosi.  Almost nothing we were told initially turned out to be correct.  What we do know now, is that DePape is an illegal alien, and he's been mentally ill for a long, long time.  By example, for an entire year, he thought he was Jesus Christ.  The Paul Pelosi attack has now been used by the Democrats as definitive proof that "the right-wing" including the GOP, Fox News, and every rando on Twitter, is to blame for inspiring DePape.  If anyone ever said Nancy Pelosi was a jerk, that was evidence of inciting a climate of violence generally and targeting Nancy Pelosi specifically.  The View's leading dummy, Whoopi Goldberg, claimed that Fox News "has blood on their hands" because a nut attacked Paul Pelosi and wanted to kneecap Nancy with a hammer.  The human carrot occupying the Oval Office gave another political speech on Wednesday night and, along with other nonsense, Biden mentioned the DePape attack and claimed it was evidence of the "right wing" inciting violence.

FOX News Affiliate Forced to Retract Report that Pelosi and DePape were Found in their Underwear.  There continues to be massive speculation about what took place at the Pelosi residence in San Francisco in the early morning of Friday.  The San Francisco Police have given few details and then were forced to come out and "correct" several of their previous statements.  The Pelosi narrative is still being concocted in the back rooms and halls that house the powerful elites. [...] [San Francisco Police Chief] William Scott said Depape was booked on charges of attempted homicide, assault with a deadly weapon, elder abuse, burglary, and "several additional felonies."  The charge for elderly abuse was addressed by Greg Kelly.  He noted that elderly abuse appears to apply to individuals who have a relationship.

David DePape Pleads Not Guilty to All Charges in Paul Pelosi Incident.  David DePape pleaded not guilty Tuesday to all charges in his first court appearance on Tuesday.  DePape pleaded not guilty to the numerous charges against him in the alleged Paul Pelosi attack on Friday morning.  DePape appeared in court with a sling on his arm.  He was not shackled for some reason.

U.S. Capitol Police had live video feed at Pelosi home but didn't notice break-in: Sources.  Alive security video feed at the home of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi caught the suspect in the recent assault on her husband Paul Pelosi, but no one from the U.S. Capitol Police was watching, sources told Just the News.  U.S. Capitol Police did not return numerous requests for comment on Tuesday.  A source revealed to Just the News that the officer who was in charge of monitoring the feed didn't notice the break-in occurred until the flashing strobe lights from responding San Francisco police squads were visible on the feed.

Paul Pelosi attack: Cops weren't monitoring cameras during break-in.  The Capitol Police has live cameras outside Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's home — but officers were reportedly not watching the feeds when her husband was brutally assaulted.  The agency monitors 1,800 cameras at the Capitol and away from its jurisdiction, including at the Pelosi residence in San Francisco, the Washington Post reported.  An officer who was cycling through the many live feeds Friday at one point noticed police lights flashing outside the home and rewound the video, according to the paper.

Nancy Pelosi's former neighbor questions why invasion triggered no warning.  Nancy Pelosi's former neighbor is questioning why a violent home invasion triggered no alarms — as security experts condemn the apparent ease with which David DePape broke in, and predict federal protections will be extended to her family.  Residents of tony Broadway Street in San Francisco are used to fleets of black SUVs surrounding the Speaker's red brick mansion 24/7, a heavy police response to any disturbances, and even their computers getting scrambled by alleged security measures to protect the nation's Number Three.  So when Marjorie Campbell read that her old neighbor had to call 911 himself while negotiating with a hammer-wielding madman, she was deeply perplexed.

Pelosi 'won't release home-security footage,' Dems demand GOP take blame.  What is known about a confrontation in the San Francisco home of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is that a person arrested for injuring her husband, millionaire Paul Pelosi, was "mentally unstable" with a brain "addled by long-term drug use."  He is a former "pro-nudist activist, convinced that 'he was Jesus for a year,' who lived in a bus on a semi-commune and has embraced conspiracy theories from the left and right," according to columnist David Harsanyi at the Federalist.  So why, then, are so many questions remaining unanswered, including reports that Pelosi won't turn over home security footage of the fracas.  Likely, Harsanyi finds, because with the truth of the matter uncertain, leftists can insist that "every conservative personally 'condemn' the actions of the mentally ill man."  And that would have "nothing to do with lowering the rhetorical temperature or averting violence," but instead has "everything to do with trying to compel Republicans to take responsibility..." he explained.

WaPo wonders: Why did the Capitol police bungle Pelosi's security?  How did an intruder make his way undetected to the home of the House speaker long enough to break into it and attack her husband?  The Capitol police provide security for Congress and especially for its leadership, including Nancy Pelosi's home, which is covered by real-time, 24/7 surveillance.  And in this case, the CPD's cameras actually caught the intruder coming onto the property and breaking into the house.  If that's the case, though, why did Paul Pelosi have to call 911? [...] Apparently, the first notice of something amiss at the Pelosi house picked up by surveillance is when they saw police lights flashing on the cameras.  They had to roll back the video to discover that the assailant could be clearly seen on their cameras approaching and then breaking into the Pelosis' home.  Oof.  The Post uses this as a springboard mainly to tie the attack and the failure to a massive wave of threats connected to the riot on January 6, 2021.  Capitol Police didn't install surveillance cameras and live monitoring last year, however, as the excerpt notes.  They didn't get installed after Trump took office either, or even when Trump started campaigning, even though the WaPo's story mentions Trump six times in the course of the article.

What We're Learning About the Man Who Attacked Paul Pelosi.  The pathetic human known as David DePape was, until recently, a public backer of Black Lives Matter and LGBTQ causes.  At least, that's what we can surmise by surveying his "home" in Berkeley.  DePape had a "Black Lives Matter" sign in the window and an LGBTQ rainbow flag, emblazoned with a marijuana symbol, hanging from a tree outside his house.  Author Michael Schellenberger describes the scene outside DePape's residence and took a dive into his social media to — not surprisingly — come up with a far different portrait of Pelosi's attacker than the already-set narrative being pushed by the mainstream media.

Everyone Is Laughing at the Ridiculous Pelosi Big Lie.  Perhaps a guy walking through San Francisco in his Fruit of the Looms with a hammer in his hand at 2 a.m. might not draw a lot of attention, but a lot of things don't quite add up.  Hey, I don't know about you, but I have a few questions, some of which could be quickly answered with a House oversight committee deposing Paul Pelosi once he recovers and, just to be sure, sending a subpoena to Grindr.  An official investigation?  Yes, please!  This is a serious matter, we're told.  After all, the regime media and Democrats such as Ilhan Omar are out there making charges like "A far-right white nationalist tried to assassinate the Speaker of the House and almost killed her husband a year after violent insurrectionists tried to find her and kill her in the Capitol, and the Republican Party's response is to either ignore it or belittle it."  Heck, Our Democracy is at stake, so the incoming Republican majority must get to the bottom of this alleged act of political violence.  I somehow think the Democrats will be reluctant to help, though Speaker McCarthy should not let any Democrats on the panel in the first place as payback for the 1/6 kangaroo committee.

How Did David DePape Get into the Pelosis' House?  The Pelosis are worth somewhere north of $100 million.  Nancy Pelosi is the speaker of the United States House of Representatives, and second in the line of presidential succession.  You're telling me her husband Paul was alone in a house with no security or surveillance cameras?  This lunatic David DePape just walked right up to the house and broke in?  I've got other questions.  The initial report was that DePape was in his underwear when the police caught him beating Pelosi with a hammer.  Now we're told that's not true. [...] Okay, I'm just trying to picture the scene that the two responding officers saw: They entered the Pelosi home, found DePape attacking Pelosi, and stopped him.  How did they get into the house?  Did they break down the door?  Was it unlocked, or already open?  Did DePape or Pelosi open it?  The story is that the police encountered DePape in the middle of beating Pelosi.  So if DePape opened the door for them... why?  Or if Pelosi opened the door for them... how?  I see a lot of people speculating that this was some sort of lovers' quarrel, or a Grindr date gone wrong, or something along those lines.  Doesn't seem likely to me, but is it really outside the realm of possibility?  Are you a homophobe? [...] Blaming Republicans for this is grasping at straws.  But WaPo and the NYT and the rest have gotten their marching orders, I guess.  Oh, one last question: Presumably the responding officers had body cams.  Showing us the footage would shut down all these conspiracy theories, wouldn't it?

Alleged Paul Pelosi Attacker Charged With Assault, Attempted Kidnapping.  The man who allegedly attacked the husband of U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was charged Oct. 31 with federal and state charges, including assault and elder abuse.  David DePape, 42, was charged with assault and attempted kidnapping by U.S. prosecutors and a slew of felonies by local prosecutors, including elder abuse and assault with a deadly weapon.  DePape allegedly entered the Pelosi residence in San Francisco on Oct. 28 and tried to kill Paul Pelosi, 82, and attempted to kidnap Nancy Pelosi, 82.  He faces up to 50 years in prison if convicted on the federal charges.  He faces up to life in state prison if convicted on the state charges.  San Francisco officers responded to a 911 call from Paul Pelosi in the early hours of Friday and witnessed, after the door was opened, DePape and Paul Pelosi each with a hand on the same hammer.

Debate Of 'Third Person' At Pelosi Home Deepens.  Corporate media is denying initial reports by San Francisco police that there was a third person on the scene during the attack on Paul Pelosi.  In a press conference Friday, Police Chief William Scott said that 'someone inside' opened the door while Pelosi and his attacker were struggling over a hammer.  However, reports on Monday call it a 'baseless claim.'  District Attorney Brooke Jenkins also claimed that only Paul Pelosi and the attacker were on the scene.  It still remains unclear who opened the door to police officers when they arrived on the scene.  The DOJ has filed federal charges against the man accused of attacking Paul Pelosi.  42-year-old David DePape was formally charged on Monday with assault of an immediate family member, of a federal official and attempted kidnapping of a federal official.  According to the federal criminal complaint, DePape had a list of targets to attack, including Nancy Pelosi.  Furthermore, the ICE confirmed that the Canadian-born suspect is currently in the United States illegally after a long-term visa overstay.

Alleged Paul Pelosi attacker is an illegal immigrant, 'longtime' visa overstay: report.  David DePape, the man who allegedly broke into the San Francisco home of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and attacked her husband, Paul, with a hammer, was reportedly in the country illegally.  A source with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) told Fox News that DePape was an illegal immigrant and a "longtime" visa overstay, meaning he arrived in the United States by legal means but did not leave after his visa expired and was never repatriated.  DePape was born in Canada and has resided within the U.S. for roughly 20 years.

Release Paul Pelosi's 911 Call.  There are now no fewer than two — and possibly three — investigations taking place into the attack on Paul Pelosi, the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.  Officials claim to want to quell the speculation about the attack on Pelosi's husband, but they could clear a few things up by releasing the actual 9-1-1 call and police body cam video.  Instead, local police, Capitol Police, and the FBI say "we're not revealing any other details at this time."  Law enforcement has the perp dead-to-rights attacking Paul Pelosi, and two cops are witnesses, so what's being protected, exactly?  [Tweet]  By now we have learned that Pelosi was attacked by David DePape, a 42-year-old illegal alien, Berkeley pothead, and nudist enthusiast who likes to parade around naked on the streets of San Francisco.  Naturally, the media claim the 42-year-old mentally ill man is a "MAGA" conservative because of his choice of intended victims.

Pelosi Got Hammered.  When a story comes out about a Pelosi getting hammered, a normal person assumes the news has something to do with a drunk speaker of the House named Nancy slurring through a staged press conference with her Pravda media friends.  You do not expect to find out that an alleged commie Castro nudist with a fondness for psychedelics has managed to Mission: Impossible his way past tight security surrounding one of the speaker's guarded homes in order to play handyman with her husband's tools. [...] It boggles the mind to imagine that it is easier to sneak up on Nancy's gilded husband in the middle of the night than it is to break into the humble abodes of "flyover country" folk, but that is the "official story," and if there is anything Americans have learned during the Age of COVID and Climate Change Hysteria, the "official story" is the only story that will suffice. [...] If it is that easy for a commie Castro nudist to prance right in the back door of the home of one of America's most powerful politicians, then no unarmed American can possibly be safe!

Justice Department Files Federal Criminal Charges Against David DePape [which] Allows [the] Government to Control and Hide Evidence.  The Department of Justice on Monday announced two federal criminal charges against David DePape.  "DePape was charged with attempted kidnapping, and with retaliating against a federal official by threatening or injuring a family member."  CNBC reported.  The US government will now control and hide the evidence — and shape the national media narrative.

Glenn Greenwald examines the 'instantly formed media narrative' about the attack on Paul Pelosi.  San Francisco police and other investigators still haven't yet confirmed a motive in the attack on Paul Pelosi, according to the latest reports:  [Tweet]  That brings us to Glenn Greenwald's thread examining the media/Dem narrative compared to police statements and what questions are not being asked:  [Tweet]  Greenwald sees what's happened, and it's that if you don't automatically agree with the mainstream media hive mind, you're a wacky conspiracy theorist.  [Tweet]  If the country had a real media there are many totally fair questions to be asked about the Pelosi story:  [Tweet]

Five Lingering Questions About The Bizarre Paul Pelosi Attack.  Politicians on the left wasted absolutely no time attributing the Pelosi attack to "The Republican Party" and "far right white nationalists". [...] And as Glenn Greenwald pointed out this weekend, there's also the fifth question of how Paul Pelosi was able to take a bathroom break in the midst of an attack.  Greenwald is right when he says it "requires more scrutiny" after Politico reported that Pelosi told the intruder "he had to go use the bathroom" in the midst of the break-in.  From there, Pelosi was apparently able to dial 911 from a phone that he had left charging... in the bathroom.

Analysis and conjecture:
The Awful Truth: Paul Pelosi Was Drunk Again, and In a Dispute With a Male Prostitute.  [Scroll down] These people are worth hundreds of millions of dollars.  Nancy is third in line to the Presidency.  You don't think they have the most amazing security?  And by the way, when Pelosi was in that drunk driving accident, he had a young man with him, and that too was covered up by the police and the press.  How would (suspect Depape) have been able to break a window that without triggering an alarm?  He didn't.  The police broke the window to gain entry.

Ri-i-i-ight.  As in most home invasions, the intruder knows where the bedroom is and just wants to "take a nap" -- at 2:00 a.m.
Criminal Complaint: Pelosi Attacker David DePape Went Up to the Bedroom — Was Tired, Wanted to Take a Nap.  The Justice Department announced federal charges against David DePape, 42, in the attack last Friday on Paul Pelosi, the 82-year-old husband of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), at the couple's San Francisco home.  Kristinn Taylor reported on the announcement earlier.  DePape is being charged with assault on a family member of a U.S. official and one count of attempted kidnapping of a U.S. official, Nancy Pelosi, who was not home at the time. [...] According to today's version of events, David DePape broke into the home unnoticed, went to the bedroom where Paul Pelosi was sleeping where they had a discussion before Paul slipped into the bathroom to make a call.  The court documents then say David DePape was tired and wanted to take a nap.

New Information Emerges About Suspect's Background After Attack on Paul Pelosi.  David DePape, the man accused of attacking House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband with a hammer last week in the couple's California home, has been "mentally ill for a long time," according to a woman who identified herself as DePape's former life partner.  Oxane Taub, a nudist activist who's currently incarcerated in the California Institution for Women after being convicted on abduction charges last year, told ABC7 that DePape, 42, suffered from mental health issues.  "Hello, this is Gypsy Taub.  I am the ex-life partner of David DePape and the mother of his children," Oxane "Gypsy" Taub told the local media outlet over the weekend. "He is mentally ill.  He has been mentally ill for a long time."  Taub, who noted that the pair had two sons before they split seven years ago, said that DePape at one point disappeared for about a year.

Dems, Media Demand GOP Call Off Campaign.  Three days out from an attack on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband in their San Francisco home, we still know precious little about the attacker's motivations — or, for that matter, about what precipitated the attack itself.  That hasn't stopped Democratic politicians and their allies in the mainstream media from fingering the culprits — their Republican adversaries — and concluding that, eight days out from an election in which they are bracing for a shellacking, the GOP should spend the final week of the campaign sitting on the bench, reflecting, atoning.  How convenient.  How cravenly and transparently political.  Pelosi herself, meanwhile, is fundraising on the back of the attack.

Biden and Democrats spin the attack on Paul Pelosi to smear Trump, MAGA backers.  Joe Biden lost no time blaming ultra-mega-semi-fascist-MAGA-Donald-Trump supporters for the strange attack on Paul Pelosi in his San Francisco home early Friday.  Barack Obama did the same, using a rally in Michigan for failed Gov. Gretchen Whitmer to rail against "politicians who work to stir up division to try to make us angry and afraid of one another for their own advantage."  So did Hillary Clinton, who tweeted: "The Republican Party and its mouthpieces now regularly spread hate and deranged conspiracy theories.  It is shocking, but not surprising, that violence is the result."  So did Kamala Harris, demanding people "speak out against hate."  So did every other Democrat surrogate, like Hollywood director Rob Reiner who tweeted: "Donald Trump is 100% responsible for this and Jan.6."  So did all the Democrat-aligned media who delivered the same talking points in unison, along with dubiously sourced facts and a false depiction of the alleged attacker as a MAGA Republican in defiance of his drug-addicted hippy lifestyle, Green Party membership and the BLM and LGBT signs festooned across his sometime residence, a nudist commune in San Francisco's gay Castro district.

CBS News Anchor Loses Her Mind Because GOP Refuses to Concede the Election to Nancy Pelosi.  The attack on Paul Pelosi, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband, has dominated the news the last few days.  Questions still remain about how David DePape, a nudist protester with a convoluted political history, got inside the house, but what appears fairly clear is that the assailant had a drug-induced psychotic break.  Naturally, though, the easy answer isn't the one the left wants.  Instead, they want to pretend that Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy making a joke a year ago is what actually "radicalized" DePape because everything must be stupid.  CBC News anchor Margaret Brennan toed that line on Sunday, losing her mind because the GOP refuses to concede the election to Democrats nine days before the mid-terms. [...] Brennan and her cohorts have only decided that campaigning is bad in this instance because they think they can shame Republicans into giving up a sure victory.  Hysterically, the CBS News anchor actually suggests that the GOP has run too many ads that "mention Speaker Pelosi by name," as if that's unusual or out-of-bounds.

Two Far-Right Websites Attributed to David DePape to Smear Conservatives Were Fabricated — They Were Created Friday and Deleted Saturday.  The mainstream media attributed two websites to the man arrested with Paul Pelosi on early Friday morning, David DePape.  However, this all appears to be another far-left farce.  David DePape was found with Paul Pelosi early Friday morning in his underwear at the Pelosi home by police in San Francisco.  The mainstream media immediately tried to cover for the Pelosi family.  They then attempted to align the man in his underwear found with Paul Pelosi as a conservative.  But it was all a lie.  There are numerous questions related to this case already.  In addition, the media tried to frame DePape as a conservative based on websites that were reportedly his.  DePape was homeless and a drug addict but the media insisted he was running a conservative website?  Makes perfect sense. [...] The problem is the websites cited by the mainstream media that were supposedly aligned with DePape were scraped on Friday and they are no longer active Saturday [10/29/2022].

NBC News Walks Back Report There Was Third Person Inside House During Attack on Paul Pelosi.  NBC News walked back a report Sunday that there was a third person in Paul Pelosi's home during the attack.  "The SFPD also says that there were only TWO people inside the Pelosi home (Paul Pelosi and DePape) when they responded, clarifying statements made at Friday's press conference which seemed to indicate there was a third person inside the home who opened the door," wrote NBC investigative correspondent Tom Winter on social media on Sunday afternoon. [...] Winter reported Sunday morning on Meet the Press that there was a third person inside the home, who opened the door for police.

Pelosi Attack Suspect Was A Psychotic Homeless Addict.  Leading politicians yesterday blamed the political Right for the brutal attack on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband Paul.  "This is despicable," said President Biden.  He noted that the alleged attacker, David DePape, 42, shouted the same line, "Where's Nancy?" as the supporters of Donald Trump, who stormed the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021. [...] "This attack," said San Francisco's state Senator, Scott Weiner, "is terrifying and the direct result of toxic right-wing rhetoric."  Journalists, en masse, agreed with their assessment. [...] DePape lived with a notorious local nudist in a Berkeley home, complete with a Black Lives Matter sign in the window and an LGBT rainbow flag, emblazoned with a marijuana symbol, hanging from a tree.  A closer look reveals the characteristics of a homeless encampment, or what Europeans call "an open drug scene." [...] Neighbors described DePape as a homeless addict with a politics that was, until recently, left-wing, but of secondary importance to his psychotic and paranoid behavior.  "What I know about the family is that they're very radical activists," said one of DePape's neighbors, a woman who only gave her first name, Trish.  "They seem very left.  They are all about the Black Lives Matter movement.  Gay pride.  But they're very detached from reality.  They have called the cops on several of the neighbors, including us, claiming that we are plotting against them.  It's really weird to see that they are willing to be so aggressive toward somebody else who is also a lefty." [...] Wrapped up in their own obsession with Trump Republicans, most journalists have missed the real story.  David DePape is not a microcosm of the political psychosis gripping America in general.  Rather, he's a microcosm of the drug-induced psychosis gripping the West Coast in particular.

Paul Pelosi's Attacker Gets a Lot Weirder, and the Picture Gets a Little Clearer.  On Saturday morning, I penned a piece noting how little sense the attack on Paul Pelosi made.  Specifically, the attacker, David DePape, had a profile that seemed to be all over the place.  One second, we were finding out he was a nudist protester who lived in a leftwing commune decked out in BLM signs and gay pride flags.  The next second the authorities were telling us that he was a January 6th supporter who disparaged Jews.  So what's the real story?  Well, if a new report from The Washington Post is accurate, we might finally have an answer, and perhaps predictably, it's probably not going to confirm anyone's priors. [...] Far from being some organized, sinister Republican operative, radicalized by GOP thought, it appears DePape is what he always appeared to be: An insane person with no long-standing, coherent political ideology.  His shift from leftwing to rightwing conspiracy theories was likely a result of his already broken mental state.

Is Nancy Pelosi a 'Beard'? Does this Explain Her Unceasingly Angry Disposition?  The incident at the Pelosi house on early Friday morning is still puzzling at best.  There now are more questions than answers.  The police didn't share how David DePape entered the house in their first press conference.  They did mention that they charged him with burglary but that was it.  In the second San Francisco Police Department press conference on the matter on Friday, the police provided more information.  The police shared:  "I can confirm that Mr. DePape forced entry into a rear door at the rear of the Pelosi home."  So when did Mr. DePape lose his pants?  Was it before he entered the house or after he entered Paul Pelosi's bedroom?  Did they find the pants?  What was Mr. Pelosi wearing when he got into the hammer fight with the younger man?  Not everyone is buying this evolving storyline from Democrats, their media, and the SFPD.  In his latest move making headlines, Twitter owner Elon Musk called out Hillary Clinton for sharing a LA Times article that aimed to paint Paul Pelosi's "attacker" David DePape as a far-right conspiracy theorist.

Elon Is Right- The Websites Were Created After The Attack!  Elon Musk is wasting no time in turning Twitter into a place where truth is not censored.  In his latest move Musk called out Hillary Clinton for sharing a LA |Times article that aimed to paint Paul Pelosi's "attacker" David DePape as a far-right conspiracy theorist. [...] Joe Hoft at The Gateway Pundit reported last night that the information Hillary Clinton used to smear Republicans is very questionable.  The websites that started these rumors were scraped after the attack on Friday.  They were taken down on Saturday!  On Sunday news broke that David DePape was in Paul Pelosi's bedroom.  For some reason that piece of information did not leak out until Sunday, three days after the attack.

Another MSM Hate Hoax — The 'Far-Right' Websites Attributed To Paul Pelosi Attacker Are Fabricated And We Have A Proof (Screenshots).  A 42-year-old Berkeley, California, man is accused of breaking into House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's San Francisco house and beating her husband with a hammer before dawn Friday.  The mainstream media so far reported he targeted a Democrat and that he is a right-wing conspiracy theorist.  Biden went even one step further and alleged that the attacker is a Trump supporter as he commented on the attack at the top of his speech at Philadelphia's 3rd Annual Independence Dinner and said that he spoke with the Speaker and said that her husband was operated on and was recovering and in good spirits.  But the mainstream media decided to fuel the fire!  The media tried to frame DePape as a conservative based on websites that were reportedly his.

Police Chief Claims Unknown Person Let Officers Into Home Of Paul Pelosi On Night Of Attack.  The San Francisco Police Department released some information regarding Paul Pelosi's arrest but some very important information has been left out to date.  The San Francisco Police held their first press conference on the events earlier in the day yesterday and they didn't mention how the police got into the house, but somehow they did.  An unidentified person is reported to have let police officers into Paul Pelosi's home during the early hours that an intruder broke in and attacked Pelosi with a hammer.  According to San Francisco Police Department Chief Bill Scott when law enforcement arrived at the Pelosi residence, "the door was opened by someone inside".  He didn't however clarify who that person was.

Democrat Media Complex Politicizes Attack on Paul Pelosi: 'Anger of the Right'.  The Democrat media complex has tried to incriminate conservatives for the attack on Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-CA) husband, Paul Pelosi.  "We know that Nancy Pelosi has attracted the ire, the frustration, and the anger of the political right for many, many years," CNN's senior law enforcement analyst, Andrew McCabe, claimed during a recent interview.  On Friday, Chief Bill Scott of the San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) identified the suspect in the attack on Pelosi's husband as 42-year-old David DePape, according to Breitbart News.

Leftists and violence privilege.  Crime has been on the minds of many Americans these days, but at no time has it come to prominence in the national discourse faster than in the aftermath of the Paul Pelosi assault earlier this week.  As Bill O'Reilly most astutely observed, "the Pelosis don't believe in self-protection.  They also don't even consider public safety.  The maniac is allegedly a drug addict who lives on the streets of Oakland.  There are tens of thousands of Bay Area people in the same circumstance.  Authorities don't care, and that includes Congresswoman Pelosi.  Dangerous street people are allowed to do what they want."  Therein lies the issue.  Pelosi, like many progressives, selectively pettifogs the evils of progressive policy except when their insidious byproducts affect them personally, violence being one.

Paul Pelosi's Attacker Identified as 42-Year-Old Nudist Activist David Depape.  An assailant identified as David Depape reportedly attacked Paul Pelosi, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband, with a hammer at the couple's home in San Francisco early Friday morning. [...] Some conservatives on Twitter questioned how an assailant would be able to break into the Pelosi's home given its high level of security.  "My firm served a lawsuit against Paul Pelosi one time in SF after attempting to serve at other residences," tweeted civil rights attorney Harmeet Dhillon.  "They weren't home, but staff were, and multiple law enforcement officers were on the perimeter.  Break-in is odd given this level of security." [...] Meanwhile, the left is stoking a narrative that the deranged nudist activist is a violent "right-wing extremist."

Paul Pelosi attacker David DePape lived in a school bus.  The man accused of attacking Paul Pelosi with a hammer had been living in a school bus weeks before the attack, neighbors said.  Those who know David DePape, 42, told The Post they've seen him living in a yellow school bus parked in front of the Berkeley home of his ex, San Francisco pro-nudist activist Gypsy Taub, with whom he shares three children.  "He usually kept to himself," neighbor Ryan La Coste told The [New York] Post.  "He would just give us a blank stare when we would walk by.  We tried to stay clear of him. ... No one knew he was here because he would be on the bus or he just didn't communicate."  La Coste said he "wasn't surprised at all" when he learned his former neighbor was involved in the brazen attack on Pelosi.

The Man Who Attacked Paul Pelosi Is a 'Psychotic, Homeless Addict' With No Discernible Political Agenda.  The pathetic human known as David DePape was, until recently, a public backer of Black Lives Matter and LGBTQ causes.  At least, that's what we can surmise by surveying his "home" in Berkeley.  DePape had a "Black Lives Matter" sign in the window and an LGBTQ rainbow flag, emblazoned with a marijuana symbol, hanging from a tree outside his house.  Author Michael Schellenberger describes the scene outside DePape's residence and took a dive into his social media to — not surprisingly — come up with a far different portrait of Pelosi's attacker than the already-set narrative being pushed by the mainstream media. [...] I am going to repeat this again because it continuously fails to get through on the left and the right: Mentally ill people do not have "political agendas."  They have "visions."  They have "delusions."  They see things.  They hear things.  There is no left.  There is no right.  There are only the voices in their heads, and to believe otherwise is to prove that you should join them in the asylum.  These pathetic human beings can be dangerous, and most should not be left unsupervised.

Biden connects 'despicable' Paul Pelosi attack to Republican talk of stolen elections.  President Biden on Friday called the attack on Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-Calif.) husband at their San Francisco home "despicable" and suggested it was a natural progression from lies Republicans have spread about the 2020 election. [...] Police said earlier Friday that the suspect in the case violently assaulted Paul Pelosi around 2:30 a.m.  Authorities arrived at the home for a "priority well-being check" and found the two men tussling over a hammer.  The suspect then gained control of the hammer and used it to attack Pelosi.  The Speaker was not in San Francisco at the time, according to her spokesman Drew Hammill.  U.S. Capitol Police said she was in Washington, D.C., with her protective detail.

Reporter Caught on Hot Mic Confirming Media Not Telling Truth About Pelosi Attack.  Paul Pelosi, the husband of Nancy Pelosi, was hospitalized after being attacked in his home (the House Speaker was not there) by a man reported to be a former Castro nudist and hemp jewelry maker named David Depape.  That doesn't sound very "MAGA" but the lib media will no doubt try and make the attacker into a Trump fan one way or another.  There's something really weird about this Paul Pelosi attack story.  Nothing is adding up.  But one thing we do know is that the so-called "intruder" is some hippy-dippy dude from Berkeley who sells hemp bracelets and used to belong to a nudist colony.  So, they'll be really hard-pressed to blame this on a Trump supporter.  But we might never know the whole truth!  It appears we are not getting the real story, according to a conversation a mainstream media reporter had with his boss.  [Video clip]

Paul Pelosi When Calling Cops Said 'He Doesn't Know Who the Male Is but He Advised that His Name Is David and He Is a Friend'.  Paul Pelosi reportedly told 911 dispatch that the individual who allegedly attacked him with a hammer in his home "is a friend," according to a police dispatch call early Friday morning.  The alleged intruder reportedly attacked Paul Pelosi with a hammer, which forced him to undergo emergency surgery for his injuries.  Officers later identified 42-year-old Berkeley resident David DePape as Pelosi's attacker.  DePape was reportedly wearing only underwear when officers arrived on the scene.  He was taken into custody and will be charged with multiple felonies, including attempted murder, San Francisco district attorney Brooke Jenkins announced.

The Paul Pelosi Story Makes No Sense, and the Public Needs Answers.  I've stayed away from the story of Paul Pelosi, Nancy Pelosi's husband, being attacked by a hammer in his San Francisco home to this point because of how confusing the fact pattern is. [...] What has come out about the attacker and how the attack unfolded simply doesn't add up.  Now, that could be because we just lack some additional facts that confirm the predominant narrative, but until those facts arrive, no one can be blamed for looking at the situation with some heavy side-eye. [...] For example, aside from supposedly being a January 6th nutter, we know that David DePape is a hemp jewelry-making nudist protester.  Here's what his house looks like.  [Tweet]  Additional pictures show signs supporting Bernie Sanders and Chesa Boudin, both far-left figures.  The flag out front is a gay pride/marijuana flag (what will they come up with next?).  Further, DePape is apparently a "father figure" to the children of a woman in a commune who is married to another man.  That woman is known for her public proclamation of 9/11 conspiracy theories, which are typically a left-wing pursuit.

San Francisco Police Identify Suspect in Attack on Paul Pelosi.  Chief Bill Scott of the San Francisco Police Department on Friday identified the suspect in the attack on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-CA) husband as 42-year-old David DePape.  "At approximately 2:27 this morning, San Francisco police officers were dispatched to the residence of Speaker Nancy Pelosi regarding a priority well-being check.  When the officers arrived on scene, they encountered an adult male and Mrs. Pelosi's husband, Paul," Scott said during a press conference.

Paul Pelosi Attacked in His San Francisco Home, Suspect Identified as Pro-Nudity Activist David Depape.  Police have identified pro-nudity activist David Depape as the suspect accused of attacking Nancy Pelosi's husband Paul with a hammer in the couple's San Francisco home on Friday. [...] His wordpress blog is mostly just full of one word posts with zero content, the type of thing someone with severe schizophrenia would post.  They're "political" in the way someone who thinks they're being "gangstalked" by the CIA is political.  Nonetheless, Democrats and the media are of course politicizing the attack.

David Depape, Paul Pelosi Suspect.  [Scroll down] Joe Eskenazi, of Mission Local, tweeted, "My sources also name the suspect in this morning's hammer attack on Paul Pelosi as David DePape, born 1980, of Berkeley.  He would appear to be a former Castro nudist protester.  Things appear set to be bizarre for a while."  The Castro is a well-known neighborhood in San Francisco.  The term in this context does not refer to the Cuban dictator.  A 2013 article in the San Francisco Chronicle mentions Depape, although his name is spelled wrong.  It describes him as a "hemp jewelry maker."  That article reported that Depape was the best man at the naked wedding of a well-known pro-nudity activist named Gypsy Taub.  Linda Schneider, who has known Depape for years, told CNN that he once lived in a storage unit and had done hard drugs.

Pelosi attack just before midterms — I call this a political ploy!  David DePape, 42, the man who allegedly attacked Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's husband early Friday posted memes and conspiracy theories on Facebook about Covid-19 vaccines, the 2020 election and the Jan. 6 attack.  Most of the public posts on DePape's Facebook page were from 2021.  In earlier years, DePape also posted long screeds about religion, including claims that "Jesus is the anti christ."  None of the public posts appeared to mention Pelosi.  No pictures of Paul Pelosi showing damage or pictures of suspect?  Hardly any details on how the suspect got into the house?  This happened right before the elections.  Seems very fishy to me.  I'm sure the MSM will hyper focus on this incident to help the Democratic Party win the midterms.

Police Release The Dispatch From Pelosi's Residence.  [Scroll down] A dispatch official calls out during the call to a police car with specific instructions and an address.  "Copy," replied the person on the other end of the call.  The dispatch official then said that Pelosi informed 911 that he did not know who the attacker was but gave his name and then explained that "he is a friend."  Police audio of SFPD's 'welfare check' call about Paul Pelosi says that he called "David" a "friend" who seemed "confused."  Context:  This was a Berkeley nudist in his underwear struggling with another man in his underwear over a hammer at 2:30 am in San Francisco[.]  That's really strange!  Now, he's saying the guy is a friend but then he's also saying he didn't know who he was?

Alleged Pelosi intruder has manifesto of conspiracy theories: sources.  The alleged home intruder who attacked 82-year-old Paul Pelosi early Friday holds anti-government conspiracy theories, according to sources.  Sources told KTVU that authorities found a manifesto belonging to 42-year-old David DePape that contained conspiracy theories and anti-government COVID beliefs.  He also allegedly had a list of other politicians he planned to target.

Pelosi Assailant David Depape Was In His Underwear When Police Arrived — Yanked the Hammer from Paul Pelosi.  As reported earlier, according to sources close to the investigation, Paul Pelosi's attacker is 42-year-old Berkeley resident David Depape, The San Francisco Standard reported.  San Francisco police chief William Scott said Depape was booked on charges of attempted homicide, assault with a deadly weapon, elder abuse, burglary and "several additional felonies."  Paul Pelosi, husband of Nancy Pelosi was violently attacked with a hammer in his San Francisco home early Friday morning.  Sources are telling many reporters that the attacker allegedly was screaming "Where is Nancy!" when Paul Pelosi was confronted and attacked in the couple's San Francisco home.  Nancy Pelosi was in DC according to her office.

David DePape ID'd as hammer-wielding intruder who attacked Paul Pelosi.  The man who allegedly attacked Paul Pelosi with a hammer has been named as David DePape by the San Francisco Police Department.  The 42-year-old is believed to have entered the Pelosi home through its rear and shouted, "Where's Nancy?," looking for the Democratic speaker of the House, who was in Washington, DC, at the time.  DePape is then said to have attempted to tie Paul up, saying they were going to wait "until Nancy got home," according to CNN.  San Francisco Police Chief William "Bill" Scott said officers were dispatched to the Pelosi residence in the Pacific Heights neighborhood at 2:27 a.m. Friday, where they encountered the suspect and Paul, who both appeared to be holding a hammer.

Intruder breaks into Nancy Pelosi's home, attacks husband Paul with hammer.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband was hospitalized Friday after an unknown assailant broke into the couple's San Francisco home and reportedly attacked him with a hammer.  Spokesman Drew Hammill said in a statement that Paul Pelosi, 82, was "violently assaulted," but was expected to make a full recovery.  "The assailant is in custody and the motive for the attack is under investigation," Hammill added.

The Editor says...
Ri-i-i-ight.  I'd be a little more inclined to believe this story if I had never heard of Jussie Smollett, and if there wasn't an election coming up in a couple of weeks, and if the Democrats hadn't been actively searching nationwide for a violent white insurrectionist for the last few months, and if the FBI wasn't already suspected of concocting plots against politicians — for the benefit of the politicians.  Yes, San Francisco is infested with criminals, but doesn't the Speaker of the House have the tightest residential security in town?  Can anybody get by the federal agents and stroll into the Pelosi mansion?

Pelosi Was Asked About Inflation While She's Wearing A 5k Custom Jacket.  This week on "Face the Nation" with just 15 days to go until Election Day they invited House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.  Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Sunday declined to say if she will remain in House leadership following next month's elections when pressed by CBS "Face the Nation" moderator Margaret Brennan. [...] "I'm not here to talk about me," Pelosi responded.  "I'm here to talk about the future.  America's working families.  For the children.  It's always about the children."  But when she was questioned on Inflation her answer might have won the midterms for the GOP.  She was wearing her 5k custom-made jacket when she give her opinion on inflation!

Pelosi's 'Winning' Message To Voters: Quit Griping About Inflation.  To all those suffering from skyrocketing prices, struggling to make ends meet, going to food kitchens to feed their families, breaking the bank just to fill up their tanks, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has a message for you.  Quit your griping and vote Democratic.  That is the "new and improved" messaging that Pelosi thinks will win over voters in November.

Nancy Pelosi's Stock Disclosure Reveals a Surprising Outcome.  U.S. lawmakers have been under the microscope lately for trading stocks in companies where they or their staff members might have some inside knowledge.  The rules for buying and selling stocks were strengthened for Congress in 2012 by the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge Act.  Developing rules about Congress members trading stocks is an ongoing process.  The Bipartisan Ban on Congressional Stock Ownership Act of 2022 was introduced in February by Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Steve Daines (R-Mont.), as well as Representatives Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) and Matt Rosendale (R-Mont.).  The proposed legislation would cover members and their spouses.  It grew out of anger over members of Congress trading stocks at the start of the pandemic, before its seriousness had become public knowledge.

So Pelosi Just Happened to Have a Film Crew In Her Office on January 6?  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi threatened to punch former President Trump on Jan. 6 2021, according to video obtained exclusively by CNN. [...] In the video, Trump says, "We're going walk down to the Capitol" to protest election certification.  An aide to Pelosi states that she's learned the Secret Service has dissuaded Trump from appearing at the Capitol because of safety concerns. "They told him they don't have the resources to protect him here," the aide says.  "So at the moment, he is not coming.  But that could change."  "I hope he comes," the Speaker says. "I want to punch him out."  "Oh wow, I would pay to see that," the aide says.  "I've been waiting for this," Pelosi continues.  "For trespassing on the Capitol grounds.  I'm gonna punch him out, and I'm gonna go to jail, and I'm gonna be happy."  So a few takeaways from this report:  First of all it's a federal felony to threaten a president.  And since she made the threat on video[,] it should be a slam dunk case for the Justice Department. [...] And does anyone else find it strange that Pelosi had a film crew in her office — on January 6?  I've watched the video and it's all very odd.  As if the speaker is rehearsing bad dialogue from a Steven Segal action movie.  As if the entire episode was — oh what's the word I'm looking for — scripted.

An Epidemic of Cognitive Impairment?  [Scroll down] Speaker of House Nancy Pelosi is 82.  At times she too seems trapped in her own world disconnected from reality.  Pelosi apparently recently mixed up Taiwan with mainland Communist China, and thus exclaimed "China is one of the freest societies in the world."  She stood up and weirdly rubbed her clenched fists together when Joe Biden in his state of the union darkly mentioned the dangers of soldiers inhaling toxic fumes from burn pits.  Of course, after one of Trump's SOTU addresses, Pelosi proceeded indignantly to tear up her copy of the speech on national television.  More recently, Pelosi defended open borders and the vast influxes of illegal aliens by crassly claiming "We need migrants to pick crops."

The Stock Market Made Nancy Pelosi Rich.  Now, She Wants To Ban Her Colleagues From Trading.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) has seen her net worth increase by $140 million since the 2008 financial crisis thanks in no small part to her husband's fortuitous trades in companies she has worked to subsidize.  Now, she's trying to pull up the ladder behind her:  In what may be her final months as a member of Congress, she's backing a proposal that would prohibit her colleagues from buying or selling individual stocks. [...] Pelosi has been dogged by allegations that her husband, Paul Pelosi, trades stocks on inside information gleaned from her position in Congress.  In March, Paul Pelosi exercised options to buy up to $5 million worth of Tesla stock as the speaker pushed for electric vehicle subsidies, the Washington Free Beacon reported.  And in June, Paul Pelosi exercised call options to buy up to $5 million in the graphics card manufacturer Nvidia just weeks before the House considered a bill to provide more than $50 billion in subsidies to domestic semiconductor manufacturers.

Despite Biden declaring the pandemic over, Pelosi extends proxy voting.  Much like Dr. Anthony Fauci has repeatedly tried to sell that attacks on him are attacks on The Science™, Democrats have conveyed that doing the people's work and their staying in power are synonymous.  As such, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) stood in solidarity with yet another reversal of President Joe Biden's remarks by the White House communications team and as a champion of never-ending emergencies when she declared a continuation of unconstitutional proxy voting.  Following the initial party-line vote in May 2020 where Democrats adopted the rule allowing any representative to vote for up to 10 fellow congressmen who granted such proxy, Pelosi has continued to extend the measure that even at its inception was out of sync with how the rest of the country was responding to COVID.

NASDAQ Nancy holds up bills on congressional trading while the insider rot spreads.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi hemmed and hawed again last week about the House plan to rein in sketchy trades by members of Congress and their families, making empty noises about getting it done in the wake of a brutal New York Times report ID'ing almost 100 members — nearly 20%! — who reported trades in apparent conflict with their duties as overseers of laws and regulations around American industry in 2019-'21.  She's plainly stalling, and for obvious reasons: Pelosi's a byword for such trades with her husband — financier Paul Pelosi — making moves that regularly beat the market, often in sectors highly vulnerable to legislation the speaker can advance or kill.  Indeed, she's long blocked real action on this problem, saying she's open to considering the various bills now proposed in the House but doing nothing.

Pelosi seeks ambassadorship to Italy if GOP wins House majority in midterms.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is planning her next move after an expected Republican victory in November.  Sources tell FOX Business that Pelosi wants President Biden to nominate her to become the next U.S. ambassador to Italy if the GOP takes the House majority in the midterm elections.  Biden is holding the spot for the speaker, sources say, which is one reason he has yet to fill the position since taking office.  Speculation earlier this year that a Pelosi ally and former Wall Street executive wanted the job has shifted with the increasing likelihood that the GOP takes the majority.  There was no clarity yet on how a new Senate will react to a Pelosi nomination, but there was a mixed reaction to her in the role from sources this week.

Pelosi Says It Is 'Sinful' To Restrict Abortion.  Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi repeatedly said abortion restrictions are "sinful," standing in direct contradiction to her Catholic faith.  Pelosi made the comments during an Aug. 26 Roundtable on Women's Reproductive Health at the University of California, San Francisco.  She also called abortion restrictions an "assault" on women, women of color and low-income families, according to a transcript of the roundtable.  "But one word that pervade [sic] through all of the discussion was the word 'justice.'  The fact that this is such an assault on women of color and women — lower income families is just sinful.  It's sinful," California Democrat said.  "It's wrong that they would be able to say to women what they think women should be doing with their lives and their bodies.  But it's sinful, the injustice of it all."  She said restricting abortion disregards the health of the woman and impacts the children she already has.  Pelosi then accused Republicans of putting democracy on the line through their efforts to restrict abortion.

Paul Pelosi pleads guilty to DUI, gets five days in jail.  Paul Pelosi, the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, pleaded guilty on Tuesday to driving under the influence causing injuries in Napa County.  According to the District Attorney's Office, Pelosi, 81, will be required to serve five days in jail, though he already served two days and received conduct credit for two other days.  Napa County Superior Court Judge Joseph Solga said Pelosi will work eight hours in the court's work program in lieu of the remaining day.

Drunk Driver Paul Pelosi [has been] Sentenced To A Slap On His Pampered Wrist.  On May 28th, when Nancy Pelosi was in DC, [...] Paul Pelosi was barreling down a country road, drunk.  Paul ran his brand new Porsche through a stop sign and blasted into a 2014 Jeep.  The accident wrecked both vehicles. [...] There was an effort to cover up or make it "go away" because he's a Pelosi, and rich.  Paul's pals in government tried but failed to make it a non-event.  The local DA stonewalled the media.  Pelosi deployed a PR firm to make it go away.  Mugshots that are typically available immediately were nowhere to be found.  Government toadies who were beholding to Pelosi and his "Do you know who I am?" type of attitude and money were trying as late as two weeks after Pelosi nearly killed someone, to make it go away.  When the heat was too hot, the DA finally acted (kinda) like a prosecutor and charged Paul Pelosi with two misdemeanors.  Again, Pelosi wrecked two vehicles and came within an eyelash of killing the other driver.  He should have been arraigned on felony DUI charges.  He also likely had more than alcohol in his system.  But he's Paul Pelosi, and rich.

Paul Pelosi-Linked Business Has Millions in PPP Loans Forgiven.  The Paycheck Protection Program created to help small businesses survive the pandemic by doling out loans to help them retain employees has been a bonanza for companies linked to the rich and famous, according to new reports.  The website ProPublica has amassed a searchable database of the loans, which media outlets have been exploring to find out how many rich recipients will never have to pay back a dime.  The trick is to know the corporate names of businesses in which the rich and famous either operate or have a share in.  Paul Pelosi, the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, has an 8.1 percent share in a company called EDI Associates, according to the U.K.  Daily Mail.  The restaurant company received loans of more than $1.7 million from the federal government, which won't have to be repaid, the Daily Mail reported.

The FBI raid on Trump's Mar-a-Lago home highlights the alarming double standard that gives Dems a pass.  "We believe in the rule of law.  That's what our country is about, and no person is above the law," House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told "Today" show co-anchor Savannah Guthrie during a TV interview Tuesday [8/9/2022] in an attempt to justify the unprecedented FBI raid of former President Donald Trump's Palm Beach home.  If that's the case — that we're all "equal" under the law, as Pelosi says — what penalties will her husband, Paul Pelosi, face for allegedly drunk driving?  In May, the speaker's husband was arrested and charged with driving under the influence in Napa Valley.  "The DUI report alleges that Pelosi's eyes were 'red/watery' and he was 'unsteady on his feet, his speech was slurred, and he had a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from his breath,'" Newsweek reported.  "His blood alcohol level was 0.082."  It's illegal to drive with a blood alcohol level of 0.08 or above in California, where the penalty for a first offense drunk-driving conviction could be six months in prison in addition to fines.  If Paul Pelosi skates, or gets a wrist-slap, then her phony musings about equal justice ring hollow.

Nancy Pelosi's son — who secretly joined mom on her controversial trip to Taiwan — is a top investor in Chinese telecoms company.  Nancy Pelosi's son is the second largest investor in a $22 million Chinese company whose senior executive was arrested in a fraud investigation, can reveal, raising questions about his secretive visit to Taiwan with his mother.  As well as investing, Paul Pelosi Jr, 53, also worked for the telecoms company, Borqs Technologies, in a board or consultancy role, Securities and Exchange Commission documents show.  He was awarded 700,000 shares for his services, making him the fifth largest shareholder in the company.  After other insiders sold stock in June 2021 he became the second largest — more stock than one of its two co-founders and topped only by CEO Pat Sek Yuen Chan.

'Surprised' Pelosi grins from ear to ear as she repeatedly denies she had knowledge of FBI raid.  News of an FBI raid on former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate shocked the nation, but Democrats appear to be happier than a pig in mud, especially House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., who was all smiles while discussing the matter on MSNBC.  On Tuesday morning [8/9/2022], Pelosi took to "Morning Joe" to zing the former president and reiterate that she had no prior knowledge about the raid.  She actually emphasized this point several times, while grinning like she'd just won the lottery.  While she was initially going on the program to discuss her controversial trip to Taiwan, which critics say is responsible for ratcheting up tensions with China, co-host Mika Brzezinski couldn't resist letting the speaker gloat about the Trump raid.

The Pelosis 'Appear To Have Taken Advantage Of Inside Information,' Says Former Fed Chair.  Nancy Pelosi and her husband Paul "appear to have taken advantage of inside information" in connection with stock trades, a former Federal Reserve Bank president said Thursday.  "Clearly people have taken advantage of inside information forever," said Richard Fischer, who chaired the Federal Reserve of Dallas between 2005 and 2015, on CNBC's "Squawk Box."  "I'm sorry to see that Paul Pelosi and Nancy Pelosi and others appear to have taken advantage of inside information.  Something needs to be done."

Report: Police Group May Revoke Paul Pelosi's Membership After DUI Arrest.  California Highway Patrol 11-99 Foundation may revoke the membership of Paul Pelosi — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband — after he reportedly violated its policy during his May DUI arrest by flashing his membership card.  During his arrest — where reports showed he had slurred speech plus red and watery eyes — Pelosi allegedly handed officers his driver's license and an "11-99 Foundation" card when he was asked for identification, prompting the law enforcement association to investigate, Fox News reported.

Pelosi to visit DMZ border in South Korea during Asia trip.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is set to visit the heavily fortified Demilitarized Zone in South Korea as part of her high-profile Asia trip this week, according to reports.  Pelosi arrived in South Korea late Wednesday [8/3/2022] and is scheduled to visit the area that borders North Korea, according to Agence France-Presse, making her the highest-ranking U.S. official to visit the area since former President Donald Trump met with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in 2019.

Napa Prosecutors Walk Back 'Boilerplate' Drug Allegation on Paul Pelosi.  Prosecutors in Napa County, California, have walked back what they call a "boilerplate" drug allegation in the DUI complaint against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband, Paul Pelosi.  As Breitbart News reported on Tuesday, Napa prosecutors released the criminal complaint against Paul Pelosi in which it stated he had injured a driver "while under the influence of an alcoholic beverage and a drug and under their combined influence."  On Wednesday, the prosecutors clarified that the word "drug" was simply boilerplate language.  "I believe that the drug reference is part of the statutory boilerplate language in the complaint," Pelosi's attorney Amanda Bevins told Fox News.  The "boilerplate" assertion was confirmed by the Napa County District Attorney's Office office on Wednesday [8/3/2022].  "She is correct.  It is boilerplate language auto-generated in the complaint.  Our theory is alcohol," Assistant District Attorney Paul Gero confirmed to the outlet.

The Editor says...
The phrase "under the influence of an alcoholic beverage and a drug and under their combined influence" is quite clear, and specifically the words and and combined leave no doubt that both alcohol and some other drug were involved.  If the complaint is faulty, throw it out, but this new "walk back" smells like gaslighting.

Stop 'Simping' for Pelosi over Taiwan. 'You're getting played.'  On the latest episode of Human Events Daily, host Jack Posobiec called Nancy Pelosi's trip to Taiwan a "pump and dump" scam meant to line Pelosi's own pockets rather than to empower Taiwan or the United States.  "It was a scam.  It was a semiconductor pump and dump scheme," Posobiec said plainly, warning conservatives against getting "played" by Pelosi.  "You've got all these people out there, these... 'America First' people simping for Nancy Pelosi... It's about semiconductors."  [Tweet]

Paul Pelosi allegedly had drugs in system during DUI crash.  Shocking revelations surrounding House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband were brought to light on Tuesday [8/2/2022] when court documents revealed that Paul Pelosi allegedly had a drug in his system when he was arrested on DUI charges in May.  Further allegations state that Paul Pelosi slurred his speech and tried to hand officers a police courtesy card, Fox News reports.

Turns out Paul Pelosi wasn't just drunk the night he got arrested.  It turns out that Nancy's husband wasn't just drunk the night he got arrested after crashing his 2021 Porsche into a Jeep.  According to a court document, Pelosi had a drug in his system along with the alcohol: [...] Now that drug could have been a prescription drug or it could have been something more illegal.  Hard to say the way it's written, but it kinda sounds like the latter.  Whatever the case, we know he wasn't just drunk.

New Details on Paul Pelosi Arrest Reveal He Allegedly Had More Than Just Alcohol in His System.  More information is now being revealed on the condition Paul Pelosi was in on the night he hit another car with his 2021 Porsche and was arrested.  The California Highway Patrol report is out.  It reveals more on the condition that Paul Pelosi was in, as well as more about the injury to the driver of the other car.

The Four Mysteries of Pelosi's Troublesome Taiwan Trip.  [Scroll down]  So here's the first part of the mystery.  Why did the Pentagon take three months to figure out that a trip by the House speaker to Taiwan was "not a good idea"?  It's not as if relations between the US and China took a turn for the worse only a week ago.  Taiwan has been the key flashpoint of Cold War II — Berlin plus Cuba plus the Persian Gulf — since the Sino-American relationship decisively soured over four years ago.  As I argued here in March last year, bringing Taiwan under the control of Beijing has been the consistent objective of the Chinese Communist Party for decades.  Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian is a noted exponent of the new "wolf warrior" diplomacy.  But there was nothing novel about his warning that Pelosi's visit would pose a threat to Chinese sovereignty and territorial integrity and that China would have to respond with "strong and resolute measures."

Pelosi's Slurring, Confusion, and Cluelessness Reach Scary New Heights During A Press Conference.  The evidence is building that President Joe Biden isn't the only Democrat Americans should be worried about when it comes to how things are working upstairs.  When House Speaker Nancy Pelosi took to the podium on Thursday for her weekly news conference, she launched into a stream of incoherence that would have rivaled Biden on his worst day.  And it couldn't have built much confidence in the nation's top leadership.

Former Dallas Fed Chair Says Pelosi "Appears to Have Taken Advantage" of Insider Information.  The Pelosis have done very well playing the market and Americans for fools.  Paul Pelosi, husband to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, sold all of his NVIDIA stock just one day before Congress was set to vote on a bill that would boost domestic production of semiconductors.  Paul Pelosi, bought up to $5 million in stock options in a computer-chip company back in June.  Paul Pelosi bought anywhere between $1 to $5 million in Nvidia stock options.  On Tuesday, Mr. Pelosi dumped all of his NVIDIA stock and suffered a loss of $341,365, according to Insider.

Five times House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had to answer for Paul Pelosi's stock trades.  Paul Pelosi's lucrative purchase of stock in a semiconductor company just before Congress considered providing subsidies to the industry has provided weeks of negative headlines for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi — and it isn't the first time her husband's investments have caused headaches for his powerful wife.  A number of other transactions executed by Paul Pelosi have raised eyebrows over the years for intersecting uncomfortably with the work Nancy Pelosi has pursued in the House. [...] Paul Pelosi's investing portfolio outperforms the market, and his picks have gained such a reputation for generating success that traders can now follow his investments on an app if they wish to mimic his stock purchases.

Ex-Democrat Rep Blows Whistle on Pelosi, Says She Witnessed Speaker's 'Blatant Corruption'.  Former Democrat Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) has blown the whistle on Nancy Pelosi by revealing that she witnessed the House speaker's "blatant corruption."  Gabbard, a Democratic 2020 presidential candidate, dropped the hammer on Nancy and Paul Pelosi's stock trading during an appearence on Fox News's "Jesse Watters Primetime."  Gabbard told host Jesse Watters thar she witnessed the "corruption" firsthand "when I was in Congress."  In a follow-up post on Twitter, Gabbard also accused the Pelosis of "putting the American people in danger and undermining our actual national security interests for their own profit."

Nancy Pelosi Flees The Podium After Being Asked About Her Husband's Stock Trades.  Nancy Pelosi fled her weekly press conference Thursday [7/21/2022] after being asked whether her husband Paul has ever traded stocks based on information the house speaker has relayed to him.  "No absolutely not," Pelosi said in response to a reporter who asked if her "husband ever made a stock purchase or sale based on information received from you."  The speaker's comments come on the heels of the Daily Caller News Foundation first reporting on a financial disclosure showing Paul Pelosi purchased up to $5 million worth in stock of a computer chips company before a vote on legislation that would hand billions to semiconductor manufacturers.

Paul Pelosi $1M chip company stock purchase [is the] latest in [a] long history of 'timely' buys.  Paul Pelosi, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband, purchased between $1 million and $5 million of stock in a semiconductor company ahead of an upcoming vote on legislation containing $52 billion for chipmakers — the latest in a long history of similar purchases.  A Data for Progress poll found that 70% of respondents support a ban on lawmakers trading individual stocks and 68% agree with extending the ban to their spouses.  Pelosi's husband made headlines when he purchased a substantial amount of tech stock last year under his wife's speakership.  Pelosi made millions on "timely" bets with Big Tech stock buys in advance of an antitrust bill that was moving through the House, according to a Fortune report from July 2021.

Nancy Pelosi Responds After Husband's Recent Stock Purchases.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-Calif.) office responded to criticism about her husband's purchase of semiconductor stocks ahead of Congress's vote targeting the industry.  "The Speaker does not own any stocks.  As you can see from the required disclosures, with which the Speaker fully cooperates, these transactions are marked 'SP' for Spouse.  The Speaker has no prior knowledge or subsequent involvement in any transactions," Pelosi's spokesman, Drew Hammill, told news outlets on Monday [7/18/2022].  Hammill added that there are "at least three proposals introduced in the House" regarding whether Pelosi supports proposals to bar trading by members of Congress.  "The Speaker has asked the Committee on House Administration to review these proposals," he said.

Nancy Pelosi's Husband Buys Millions In Chip Stocks Right Before Vote On Massive Chip Subsidy.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband Paul bought up to $5 million in stock of a computer chip company ahead of a vote on a bill next week that would hand billions in subsidies to boost chip manufacturing, a financial disclosure shows.  Paul Pelosi purchased 20,000 shares of Nvidia, one of the world's largest semiconductor companies, on June 17, according to the speaker's disclosure report released Thursday.  Now, senators will convene as early as Tuesday to vote on a bipartisan competition bill, which allocates $52 billion to boost domestic semiconductor manufacturing and gives tax credits for production, Reuters reported Thursday [7/14/2022].  "It certainly raises the specter that Paul Pelosi could have access to some insider legislative information," Craig Holman, a government affairs lobbyist for the left-wing think tank Public Citizen, told the Daily Caller News Foundation.

Catholic League Blasts Nancy Pelosi's 'Communion Stunt' at the Vatican.  Catholic League president Bill Donohue slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) Wednesday for politicizing the Eucharist by receiving Communion at the Vatican.  Pelosi, "who rejects the Catholic Church's teachings on abortion, marriage and sexuality, received Holy Communion on June 29 at a papal Mass in St. Peter's Basilica," Dr. Donohue noted.  "The pope was in attendance, but did not give out Communion."

The Editor says...
Nancy Pelosi appears to be using communion as a political weapon, and as stunt to puff up her own status.  One of these days, whether it's ten years from now or a thousand, Nancy is going to have to explain herself.

The Democrats' lies on abortion since SCOTUS' overruling of Roe v. Wade.  Lie 1: Biden and Pelosi are 'devout Catholics.'  "Women caring for their health" is the president's euphemism for abortion.  It was a "sad day" and "a tragic error," said Biden, when the Supreme Court returned the issue to the voters and their elected state representatives to decide.  He vowed to "do everything in my power" to preserve abortion.  Pelosi called the decision "outrageous" and "criminalizing reproductive freedom," another euphemism which tries to hide the death element of abortion.  Like Biden, her unequivocal support for abortion is wildly at odds with Catholic teaching and her ostentatious religiosity.  "I'm very Catholic, devout, practicing," she has declared.  But San Francisco's Catholic archbishop, Salvatore J. Cordileone, last month rebuked Pelosi over her vocal support for abortion, and declared she would be denied Communion.

Nancy Pelosi Calls Supreme Court 'Extremist' for Scrapping Roe Decision in Scathing Letter to Colleagues.  Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) slammed the Supreme Court for overruling Roe v Wade, which send the abortion issue back to the states, in a letter to her Democratic colleagues on Monday [6/27/2022]. [...] For starters, it's unlikely that legislation on abortion would make it to President Joe Biden's desk, especially because the Senate filibuster is not going anywhere.  The WHPA failed in the Senate back in May, as it did not hit the 60 votes necessary to codify nationwide access to abortion, NPR reported.  Pelosi's letter comes across as a denial of reality for political purposes, with the objective being to give her party's base false hope.

Mayra Flores Says Yes, Nancy Pelosi Shoved Her Child During Photo-Op.  When I first saw the video of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) appearing to shove the little daughter of Rep. Mayra Flores (R-TX) with her elbow during a photo-op for her swearing-in, I thought perhaps it was a manipulated video or maybe the angles weren't clear.  But then I saw a video taken from C-Span that seemed to show the same thing.  [Video clip]  As we reported, Nancy looks at her, moves her elbow, and the child moves to her right.  Now Mayra Flores herself is confirming it.

Nancy Pelosi disdainfully elbows away Rep. Mayra Flores's pinnafore-clad Mexican-American daughters.  Democrats for years have been promoting the notion that Republicans are congenitally racist, regulur Bull Connors. [...] It might sound like an old stereotype...  But then there's Nancy Pelosi, Democrat Speaker of the House, who demonstrated Friday who the racists are.  The occasion was the congressional swearing in of newly elected Texas Rep. Mayra Flores, who brought her two adorable daughters with her, both wearing little white dresses, the one standing next to Pelosi actually wearing a pinnafore.  Somehow, Pelosi didn't think they were cute — not in the least — the way some white leftists fall all over themselves do, cooing at children of a different skin color.  Pelosi reacted this way:  [Video clip]

Video Reveals The Real Nancy Pelosi As She Elbows A Little Girl While Her Conservative Latina Mother Is Being Sworn In.  [Scroll down past the Tweets]  The mainstream media was busy getting these old Tweets from several years ago however they weren't interested in showing a video where Nancy Pelosi elbows one of Rep. Mayra Flores children as she was being sworn in with her family present.  Nancy is clearly upset that a woman, who was born in Mexico, became a USA citizen the legal way, and was voted into office by the people.

The news media only quotes the people who are upset and disappointed by the ruling.
Pelosi says Supreme Court is 'eviscerating American rights' following Roe decision.  Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Friday [6/24/2022] slammed the Supreme Court decision striking down Roe v. Wade, arguing that the justices are "eviscerating American rights."  Pelosi — in remarks at her weekly press conference, which took place minutes after the decision was released — said the ruling is an "insult" and "a slap in the face to women."  "This morning, the radical Supreme Court is eviscerating American rights and endangering their health and safety," Pelosi said.

Pelosi Readies New Articles of Impeachment Against Trump.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Frisco, is readying new articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, Issues & Insights has learned.  "Sixteen months is too long to go between Trump impeachments," she told her Democratic caucus in a secret meeting secretly recorded by I&I investigators.  She said that despite her previous claim that Trump had been "impeached forever," she now believes that the effectiveness of a Trump impeachment is only about as long-lasting as a COVID vaccine.  She noted that the House had waited until 13 months between the first and second impeachment efforts, only to have both fail.  "We should have started on this impeachment business before Trump was even sworn in," she said.  The meeting came as the televised hearings about the Jan. 6 incursion into the Capitol building are put on pause.  Viewership of the televised hearings has plunged to the point that reruns of "F Troop" are now beating them in the ratings.

Nancy Pelosi's husband Paul, 82, is officially charged with DUI after blowing a stop sign and hitting a Jeep.  Nancy Pelosi's husband Paul has been charged with DUI by prosecutors in Napa County after a crash last month.  Fox News reported he was being charged after his blood alcohol level was recorded at 0.082 percent -- the limit is 0.08. Paul, 82, had been at a dinner party hosted by a friend on May 28 and was driving a short distance home when he crashed, it emerged.  He was driving his Porsche and pulled out onto the highway into the path of an 48-year-old man driving a Jeep in Napa.  Photos from the scene showed that the vehicles crashed into a wooden fence.

Why does a man with that much liability not have a professional driver?

New York Times spotlights Pelosi's lavish California living, husband's troubled driving history.  Following the drunk driving arrest of Nancy Pelosi's husband, a Wednesday New York Times piece exposed new details about the Democratic House Speaker's lavish lifestyle, as well as her husband's troubled driving record.  On May 28, Paul Pelosi drove a small distance in his Porsche 911 from the swanky California estate of friend and Democratic donor Alexander Mehran to his home in Napa Valley.  Soon after departing, a Jeep slammed into his vehicle as he attempted to cross the highway.  He was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving, and will head to court on August 3.  The Times called the incident "not especially flattering," but noted Mr. Pelosi's recent cataract surgery may have also impaired his driving, in addition to the alcohol.

Investigators: Pelosi Responsible For Jan. 6 Security Breakdown At U.S. Capitol.  Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi shoulders much of the blame for the security breakdown at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, a preliminary report from Republican investigators Reps.  Jim Banks and Rodney Davis determined.  The Capitol Police (USCP) were half-staffed on Jan. 6, Pelosi's House Sergeant at Arms denied multiple requests for National Guard assistance from the Pentagon and the USCP Chief in the days leading up to Jan. 6, officers were poorly equipped and had insufficient riot shields and helmets, and they were never trained to handle a riot even after the riots of 2020, the investigation shows, according to Banks.

The Question Nobody's Asking:  Why Would Pelosi Welcome an Attack on the Capitol on January 6?  This question has plagued me for some time.  Snippets of information are coming out like the peel off of an onion.  Here is my analysis of how these snippets indicate a diabolical plot.  What was happening on this fateful day?  Trump was addressing a hundred thousand plus supporters who knew the election had been stolen by fraud.  Like me, they had witnessed it first-hand.  I saw too many ballots come to my home.  I heard a friend, a Democrat, confess to voting multiple times.  I heard Bill Hemmer exclaim in disbelief on election night, They are stopping the counting!  He also said, "How can it be?" when he saw vote totals changing in impossible ways.  Trump knew the counting of the electoral college was taking place right after his speech ended.  He knew that something unprecedented was going to take place.  A few brave senators were going to object to certain swing states where the fraud was rampant.  At noon at the Capitol, the senate convened to count the electoral votes and determine the next President of the United States.  If you recall, Arizona had been called by Pence, and a brave senator stood up to object to counting Arizona's electors.  They needed two to object.  They had two.  I believe one was Ted Cruz.  Afterward, he was accused of treason.

Nancy Pelosi makes repeat appearance on RuPaul's Drag Race:  This 'is what America is all about'.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) made a guest appearance on "RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars" this week where she told the drag queens they "inspired" her.  "My honor to be here to say to all of you, how proud we all are of you.  Thank you for the joy and beauty you bring to the world," Pelosi said as she stood clad in a bright yellow pants suit on episode 5 this week.  "Your freedom of expression of yourselves in drag is what America is all about," Pelosi told the contestants in what appeared to be a completely scripted exchange.  "I say that all the time to my friends in drag," she added.

Pelosi's Court:  How the Jan. 6 committee undermined its own legitimacy.  Congress has a long history of bipartisan investigatory and select committees. [...] Pelosi's decision to gut that process was something of a signature muscle play.  As a witness in the first Trump impeachment, I was highly critical of her insistence that the House would impeach before Christmas rather than conduct the traditional impeachment investigation with witnesses.  Instead of building a more convincing case, Pelosi preferred to impeach with virtually no record, for a certain defeat in the Senate.  In the second impeachment, she went one better:  She held no hearing at all and pushed through the first "snap impeachment."  The Jan. 6 committee was similarly stripped of any pretense.  It was as subtle a political move as Pelosi's ripping up President Trump's State of the Union speech.  Asked what she hoped to achieve from the committee on the first day of hearings, Pelosi tellingly referred to it as a "narrative."  It is the difference between seeing and simulating justice.

Nancy Pelosi guest stars on drag queen TV show.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Friday she'll appear on an episode of a popular drag queen show.  Mrs. Pelosi, a California Democrat who represents San Francisco, will make "a special Pride Month appearance" on episode five of "RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars 7," aides said Friday.  The show is described as "a group of talented drag queens who compete in challenges to impress host RuPaul, the world's most famous drag queen, to win a cash prize along with a crown and the title of America's Next Drag Superstar."

Financial disclosures reveal Nancy Pelosi's embattled husband bought up to $2.1 Million in stocks, some very recently.  One of the recent financial disclosures filed by an influential Democratic lawmaker revealed that Nancy Pelosi's husband purchased up to $600,000 in Microsoft and up to $1.5 million in Apple stock.  According to the transaction report filed on the House of Representatives' official website, Nancy's husband, Paul Pelosi, acquired Apple call options for between $500,001 and $1 million back in May.  A call option, sometimes known as a "call," is a financial contract that allows the buyer to buy the stock at a certain price.  The document revealed that Pelosi bought more Apple call stock worth between $250,001 and $500,000 eleven days after the initial purchase.

New Questions About Charges, Mugshot, Body Cam in Arrest of Paul Pelosi.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband, Paul Pelosi, was arrested on May 29 for allegedly driving under the influence and driving with a blood-alcohol level of over 0.08.  He was driving a 2021 Porsche and was involved in a crash with another vehicle before he was arrested.  According to the police reports, the accident happened at 10:26 p.m.; Pelosi was arrested around 11:44 p.m., but then he wasn't booked until 4:13 a.m.  It's not been explained why there's such a long time in between the arrest and the booking time.  He was then released around three hours later.  There continue to be a lot of questions about the case.  One of the big questions is where is that mugshot that we have traditionally seen after someone is arrested?  How about the body cam?  Why haven't we seen them yet?  Multiple media outlets have made requests.  But authorities are refusing to release them, saying they could "jeopardize" the investigation.

Cops refuse to release body cam footage of Paul Pelosi's DUI arrest.  Authorities in California have refused to release any footage showing the DUI arrest of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband, saying it could "jeopardize" the investigation.  The California Highway Patrol (CHP) on Thursday denied a public records request seeking the release of body and dashboard camera video documenting Paul Pelosi's arrest last month on suspicion of drunk driving.  CHP informed Fox News Digital in a letter that it has the footage in question, "however, the Napa County District Attorney's Office has advised the release of records would jeopardize an ongoing investigation."  In a separate press release Thursday, the DA's Office said that it has not decided yet what, if any, charges, will be filed against the 82-year-old businessman.

Trump brews trouble for Nancy Pelosi, endorses candidate wanting to ban her from stock market.  In Arizona's combustible Republican Senate primary, former President Donald Trump is now supporting Blake Masterstaking a side in the race to challenge first-term Democratic Sen. Mark Kelly in November.  Masters is all about 'America First' as previously stated on video.  Masters also wants to ban Congressman from owning or trading stocks.  [Video clip]

If I were looking for intelligence or security, I sure wouldn't go to Nancy Pelosi.
Internal Capitol Police review found sweeping intelligence, security failures on Pelosi's watch.  Capitol Police compiled a secret after-action review months after the Jan. 6 riots that identified sweeping blunders by the department ranging from delayed deployment of specialized civil disturbance units to the fateful dismantling of an intelligence unit that monitored social media for threats.  Identifying 53 areas of failure needing corrective action, the June 4, 2021 report, obtained by Just the News, produces a far more stark portrait of leadership failures than those offered by Democrat-led investigations, making abundantly clear that the Capitol Police under House Speaker Nancy Pelosi were ill-equipped to defend one of America's most symbolic and high-value institutions two decades after the Sept. 11 attacks.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi discloses up to $1.5 million in Apple trades and up to $600,000 in Microsoft.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi disclosed new stock market trades on Monday, showing purchases of options to buy between $750,000 and $1.5 million [in] shares of Apple Inc and hundreds of thousands in Microsoft Corp.  In a periodic transaction report signed last Friday and appearing on the House of Representatives' website on Monday, the California Democrat disclosed that her husband, financier Paul Pelosi, on May 13 bought Apple call options for between $500,001 and $1 million.  On May 24, he bought more Apple call options, in an amount between $250,001 and $500,000, the disclosure shows.

Except the children who haven't been born yet...
Nancy Pelosi: 'Let All of Us Do Everything We Can for the Survival of Our Children'.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) spoke in San Francisco at a "Wear Orange" event, where she advocated the enactment of gun-control legislation and said: "[L]et all of us do everything we can for the survival of our children."  "Wear Orange" is a movement to prevent gun violence.  On its website it says:  "On January 21, 2013, Hadiya Pendleton marched in President Obama's second inaugural parade.  One week later, Hadiya was shot and killed on a playground in Chicago.  Soon after this tragedy, Hadiya's childhood friends decided to commemorate her life by wearing orange, the color hunters wear in the woods to protect themselves and others.

The Editor says...
That's brilliant!  If you don't want to get shot, just wear orange.  Unfortunately, guns are colorblind, and they're really mean!  We hear about "gun violence" in the news every day.

More 'Weird Developments' in the Paul Pelosi Arrest Story.  As we previously reported, Paul Pelosi, the venture capitalist husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), was arrested on Saturday and charged with two misdemeanors: driving while under the influence and driving with a blood alcohol of 0.08 or more.  But "weird developments" seem to keep happening in this case, in the words of SF Gate.  Now, a Pelosi spokesperson, Larry Kamer, is pushing back, issuing a statement saying several reports about the case have included "incorrect information."  "A prior driving offense erroneously attributed to Mr. Pelosi is untrue and likely refers to an unrelated person with the same name.  This error must be corrected," the spokesperson for Pelosi said in the statement.  "There are also incorrect reports that misstate the timing of events."  The statement did not clarify what things were supposedly inaccurate or what the "timing of events" refers to. [...] However, NBC Bay Area had reported that Pelosi had a prior DUI in 2018, according to SFGate.  But they stealth edited that out of their story.

New Details Emerge From Incident That Led To The Arrest Of Nancy Pelosi's Husband.  The arrest of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband, Paul, followed a late-night car crash, according to police.  Paul Pelosi, 82, was charged with driving under the influence on Sunday morning [5/29/2022].  At the time, the speaker's husband was "driving a 2021 Porsche into an intersection near the town of Yountville and was hit by a 2014 Jeep," the Associated Press reported.  "No injuries were reported, and the 48-year-old driver of the Jeep was not arrested."  Paul and Nancy Pelosi own an estate in Napa Valley on Zinfandel Lane, which is valued at well north of $5,000,000, that has a vineyard that nets the couple $5,000 to $15,000 in grape sales per year.  Nancy Pelosi was in Rhode Island on Sunday giving a commencement speech at Brown University.

Nancy Pelosi's Drunk Husband Paul Caused an Accident Prior To DUI Arrest.  Nancy Pelosi's husband Paul was driving his Porsche drunk after leaving a Napa Valley Winery Saturday when he pulled out onto a highway into the path of a 48-year-old man driving a Jeep.  On Saturday, Paul Pelosi, 82, was arrested for driving while drunk. said it obtained his arrest report, revealing he was driving eastbound on Walnut Lane, six miles south of the Pelosi's vineyard in St Helena.  According to the report, Pelosi pulled out onto S-29 to cross it, ignoring a stop sign, and was struck by Jesus V. Lopez, who was driving a 2014 Jeep.  Lopez was reportedly traveling northbound on the state road.  At the scene of the accident, Pelosi was found to have been over the legal blood alcohol limit.  He was arrested on two misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence and driving with a blood alcohol content level of 0.08 or higher.

More Shoes Drop in the Paul Pelosi Arrest Story.  As we've already reported, Pelosi, 82, the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), was arrested on Saturday night [5/28/2022] shortly before midnight, at 11:44 PM, when he had an accident with another car.  Fortunately, there were no injuries, but Pelosi was then charged with two misdemeanors:  driving under the influence and driving with a blood-alcohol level at or above 0.08.  For some reason that hasn't been fully explained yet, it took law enforcement officers more than four hours to book him after he was arrested.  He wasn't booked until 4:13 a.m. [...] And if he was still blowing more than 0.08 after that time, what was he like at the time of the crash?  He was released about three hours after he was booked on $5000 bail.  But now there's more information on the accident.  Pelosi was allegedly driving drunk when he piloted a 2021 Porsche through a stop sign while crossing State Route 29 and drove right into the path of an oncoming car driven by Jesus Lopez, 48, at about 10:26 p.m.  So based on the report, Pelosi allegedly caused the crash.  Notice he wasn't driving an electric vehicle, but a nice gas-guzzling new Porsche.

Pelosi's husband arrested for DUI.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-CA) husband, Paul Pelosi, was arrested late Saturday night for driving under the influence.  Paul Pelosi, 82, was booked in Napa County, California, on two counts: one for driving under the influence and another for driving with a blood alcohol content level of 0.08 or higher, according to a local booking record.

It's difficult to imagine how this can be swept under the rug, but it will be.
Nancy Pelosi's Husband Paul Arrested For DUI in Napa.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband was arrested for a DUI Saturday night in Napa County.  Paul Pelosi, 82, was arrested and booked into jail on two counts just before midnight on Saturday night, TMZ reported.  It is unclear if Nancy Pelosi was in the car when her husband was arrested.  Nancy Pelosi is currently in Rhode Island to deliver a commencement speech at Brown University.

The Catholic church has to apply the same rules to everyone.
Three More Bishops Bar Pelosi From Receiving Holy Communion Due to Support of Abortion.  Three more Catholic Bishops barred House Speaker Nancy Pelosi from receiving Holy Communion due to her support of abortion.  This means Pelosi is banned from Communion in at least four diocese.  It all started when San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore J. Cordileone last Friday announced House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will no longer be admitted to Holy Communion due to her support of abortion.

Pray for Pelosi.  Nancy Pelosi is in serious trouble.  And not the kind of trouble associated with such petty, earthly concerns like her party losing its majority in a humiliating and historic fashion this coming November.  And with that loss, her loss of the speakership for the second time in a dozen years.  No, Nancy Pelosi has some serious trouble with the disposition of her soul.  And she needs our prayers, even if she doesn't believe it herself. [...] Nancy Pelosi is 80-years-old.  Her time to repent is running out.  She is on the wrong side of American history on this issue and, more importantly, on the wrong side of salvation.

Nancy Pelosi Goes on 'Morning Joe' to Show How Little She Knows About Being Catholic.  The conflict between grotesquely dishonest Democrat politicians who claim to be "devout Catholics" to win what remains of the ethnic Catholic vote and the teachings of the Catholic Church (Roman, Orthodox, and all other permutations) may be coming to a head.  One of the two major offenders on the national scene is House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.  The other is Joe Biden, but no one believes Joe Biden knows what he's saying, so it doesn't matter.  Pelosi makes much of her family's Roman Catholic faith intertwined with its Italian heritage. [...] Nancy Pelosi's problem is that she's never been more than a "smells and bells" Catholic or a "submarine" Catholic (you know, they surface at Christmas and Easter). Her Catholicism is at most a cultural artifact and, at its worst, a grift.  Her support of abortion and the blasphemy that is the LGBTQ-whatever-whatever agenda shows that she sees religion as a political shield from criticism.  After all these years, she has been called out on her deceit, and she is dumbfounded.

Over a Dozen U.S. Bishops Rush to Support SF Archbishop Blocking Nancy Pelosi from Communion.  A flurry of U.S. bishops have rallied behind San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone, who has barred Nancy Pelosi from receiving Holy Communion because of her aggressive abortion advocacy.  As of May 23, at least 13 U.S. bishops have made public statements praising and thanking Archbishop Cordileone for the move, which was variously described as "courageous," "heroic," and "compassionate."

Nancy Pelosi slams San Francisco Archbishop for banning her from communion over abortion.  House speaker Nancy Pelosi questioned whether Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone was holding a double standard for banning her from Communion for her position on abortion while keeping quiet about Republicans who support the death penalty.  'I wonder about the death penalty, which I am opposed to.  So is the church but they take no action against people who may not share their view,' the California Democrat said Tuesday on MSNBC's Morning Joe.  Cordileone said that the speaker was not to present herself for the Eucharist in his San Francisco archdiocese because her abortion views have become 'more extreme' and 'more aggressive.'

Pelosi Receives Communion Despite Archbishop's Orders.  Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi reportedly received communion during a Sunday mass in Georgetown after recently being denied by her own archbishop in San Francisco, Politico Playbook reported Monday [5/23/2022].  Pelosi reportedly took Holy Communion at the 9:00 a.m. mass at the Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Georgetown, according to Politico Playbook.  Archbishop of San Francisco Salvatore Cordileone denied Pelosi from receiving Holy Communion at a Friday mass in San Francisco due to the "grave evil she is perpetrating" by supporting the legalization of abortion.  The dioceses of Washington D.C. and San Francisco are under the direction of two different bishops, which allows the House Speaker to continue receiving the sacrament in cities outside of San Francisco and others imposing a ban on her participating in the practice.

The View Cries Violation of Church and State to Deny Pelosi Communion.  On Friday, San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore J. Cordileone penned a notice telling Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) that, because of her pro-choice stance, she will not be permitted to take receive Holy Communion.  Well, this absolutely triggered the pro-baby killing coven on ABC's The View.  And during their Monday [5/23/2022] show, they accused the Archbishop of somehow violating the separation of church and state by carrying out punishment against a member of the church for violating their beliefs.  During the opening tease of the show, the announcer accused Cordileone of practicing "bad faith" with his decision.  "Did the San Francisco Archbishop cross the line between church and state by denying Speaker Pelosi communion for her pro-choice stance," the voiceover ridiculously asked.  It was a nonsensical point that was parroted by co-host Whoopi Goldberg, obviously.  "The abortion rights battle is starting to blur the lines between church and state," she huffed.

Leftist DC Archbishop Gregory Stands with Pelosi and Her Abortion to Birth Policies — Will Not Order Priests to Refuse Her Communion.  Washington DC Archbishop Wilton Gregory released a statement in 2020 during the deadly BLM-Antifa riots attacking President Donald Trump for visiting the John Paul II National Shrine.  The DC Archbishop Gregory lectured President Trump on "defending the rights of all people even those with whom we might disagree" while at the same time attacking him for visiting a Catholic Shrine.  This was during the BLM rioting that caused $2 billion in damages to property nationally and numerous deaths.  President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump visited the shrine for a religious freedom event.  They visited the Catholic Shrine before signing an executive order promoting religious freedom.  First Lady Melania Trump is a practicing Catholic.  The media failed to report this important detail in their hit pieces on President Trump.

Pelosi's Napa bishop will uphold San Fran Communion ban.  After Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's archbishop said Friday she is barred from receiving the Eucharist, the bishop of the California diocese where Pelosi has a vacation home says he will uphold the prohibition when Pelosi attends Mass in his diocese.  Cardinal Wilton Gregory of the Archdiocese of Washington has not commented on whether Pelosi can receive the Eucharist when she is in the nation's capital.

San Francisco archbishop bars Speaker Nancy Pelosi from Holy Communion.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has been barred from receiving Holy Communion in the Archdiocese of San Francisco because of her increasingly "extreme" position on abortion, Archbishop Salvatore J. Cordileone announced Friday [5/20/2022].  In a "letter to the faithful," the archbishop wrote that after repeated attempts to speak with Pelosi and persuade her to adhere to the Catholic Church's teaching that life begins at conception and abortion is a sin, he has determined to place her under public church discipline.  "Unfortunately, Speaker Pelosi's position on abortion has become only more extreme over the years, especially in the last few months," Cordileone wrote.  "Just earlier this month she once again, as she has many times before, explicitly cited her Catholic faith while justifying abortion as a 'choice,' this time setting herself in direct opposition to Pope Francis."

Why the brave archbishop made his move on Nancy Pelosi now.  San Francisco's Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone made waves by taking on House speaker Nancy Pelosi, barring her from receiving Communion at Mass until she could get her head straight on whether she's the devout Catholic she thinks she is or the beast who brings abortion on demand to the U.S. as one of its most powerful politicians.  A marker has been laid down — it's one or the other for Pelosi at this point, and since she's going to remain in the pews for a while, she's now got some time to decide.

San Francisco Archbishop Bars Pelosi From Holy Communion Due to Her Support of Abortion.  San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore J. Cordileone on Friday announced House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will no longer be admitted to Holy Communion due to her support of abortion.  "Since the first century the Church has affirmed the moral evil of every procured abortion," the Catechism of the Catholic Church says.  "This teaching has not changed and remains unchangeable."  "A Catholic legislator who supports procured abortion, after knowing the teaching of the Church, commits a manifestly grave sin which is a cause of most serious scandal to others.  Therefore, universal Church law provides that such persons 'are not to be admitted to Holy Communion,'" Cordileone wrote in the letter to Pelosi.

San Francisco Archbishop Bars Pelosi From Receiving Holy Communion Due To Abortion Support.  San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone announced Friday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is barred from receiving Holy Communion due to her pro-abortion stance — marking an escalation in a decades-long tension between the Roman Catholic Church and liberal Democratic politicians on abortion.  Cordileone has written to the California Democrat, informing her that she should not present herself for Holy Communion at Mass, and that priests will not distribute communion to her if she does present herself.

The Editor says...
[#1] Nancy Pelosi has been in Congress for a long time.  Where has the archbishop been for the last 35 years?  [#2] What about all the other baby-killing Democrats in San Francisco?

Archbishop Cordileone Says the Quiet Part Out Loud About Catholics Who Support Abortion.  Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of the Archdiocese of San Francisco has taken the extreme step of publishing a letter informing Rep. Nancy Pelosi, speaker of the House of Representatives and third in the line of succession for the presidency, that she must recant her public support for abortion and confess her sins before she will be allowed to partake of the Eucharist.  It's the most drastic action yet taken by a leader of the Catholic Church against a high-ranking pro-abortion politician.  The Bishop of the Springfield, IL diocese gave the same punishment to state politicians; House Speaker Michael Madigan and Senate President John Cullerton were also banned from receiving communion.

The Editor says...
All Democrats who are in agreement with the party's baby-killing feminist position (among other things) should be kicked out of the church, not just a high-profile political leader here and there.

Nancy Pelosi reveals the Democrat campaign for the midterms.  Over the weekend, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi appeared on CNN's State of the Union to talk about the leaked draft opinion by Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito that provides the rationale on why Roe v. Wade (1973), which legalized abortion nationwide, has to be overturned.  Pelosi began her exposition with the following:  ["]"Who would have ever suspected that a creature like Donald Trump would become president of the United States, waving a list of judges that he would appoint, therefore getting the support of the far-right and appointing those anti-freedom justices to the court"["] [...] Pelosi may have explicitly called President Trump a "creature," but the subtext of her remarks was that all those who voted for Trump are also sub-human.  Her fury is because she views them as impediments to her monopoly of power.  This was Pelosi's 'basket of deplorables' moment.  Pelosi in 2022 is in a similar position to Hillary Clinton in 2016.  She is so convinced of her moral superiority that she simply cannot fathom why popular opinion would be against her and what she stands for.  The sanctimonious Pelosi is convinced that she could never ever be wrong.  So she placates her ego by blaming her opponents and the voters as inferior beings.

Nancy Pelosi, Unhinged.  To be fair, that would describe Ms. Pelosi on most days.  But the specific reference is to her appearance this morning [5/15/2022] on CNN, as reported by the Washington Times.  Pelosi was beside herself on the subject of abortion: [...] It is "dangerous to the freedoms of our country" for elected representatives to determine policy on the controversial issue of abortion, rather than nine unelected justices?  "Freedom," like "our democracy," means the Democrats getting their way.  And how the presumably forthcoming Dobbs opinion is "dangerous... to families" is anyone's guess.

The Gospel Of Nancy Pelosi.  As journalist and geopolitical pundit Dave DeCamp quipped of House Speaker Pelosi's Tuesday night floor speech urging support for the $40 billion Ukraine aid bill that was later approved:  "You know the story, when Jesus turned a few loaves of bread and a few fish into billions of dollars worth of Javelins, Stingers, and heavy artillery using US taxpayer dollars."  We too hope that no Raytheon or Lockheed Martin executives injure themselves laughing at this.  This is the Gospel according to Nacy Pelosi... [Tweet]

Pelosi's Reason Why Americans Should Support $40 Billion for Ukraine Defies Belief.  The House passed a bill for $40 billion in weapons and other aid to Ukraine and the war effort on Tuesday.  That was $7 billion on top of what Joe Biden had asked for and on top of the $13.6 billion that was passed last month.  Joe Biden said they needed more because they had already spent everything.  While 57 Republicans voted against the new bill for $40 billion, most voted for it.  It still has to go through the Senate.  Congress had already passed a bill that gave Joe Biden the right to provide virtually anything out of our own stockpiles to Ukraine.  Meanwhile, officials are raising questions about how our own stockpiles are being depleted with this effort.  There are also big questions about whether they are ensuring the weapons are getting to where they're supposed to go.

Leftists Rioters Serve Pelosi A Huge Dose Of Karma After She Encouraged SCOTUS Protests.  The White House on Tuesday [5/10/2022] said it encourages "peaceful" protests outside the homes of Supreme Court justices, while criticizing those on the right who have expressed "outrage" over Roe v. Wade demonstrations but were "silent" when protests against school boards, abortion clinics and the capitol riot.  Nancy Pelosi was on the same page and commended those who "channeled their righteous anger" over the Supreme Court's leaked draft decision that would strike down Roe v. Wade by organizing and marching.

Pelosi Takes Pictures With Well-Known Money Launderer In Ukraine — Is It Just The Family Business?  Oksana Serhiyivna Markarova is the current Ukrainian ambassador to the United States.  She is also a well-known money launderer; she used her position as the former Ukrainian Minister of Finance to illegally make money in off-market bond transactions.  She left the Finance Ministry position in March of 2020 and was appointed by Ukrainian President Zelenskiy as ambassador to the U.S.  CDMedia wrote extensively in 2019 about then Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko's corrupt scheme to steal large sums of money through off-market bond transactions and then pocket the funds in offshore accounts.  Poroshenko worked these transactions through Valeriya Gontareva, the former head of the Bank of Ukraine, who later bought a $30 million flat in London on a government official's salary.

Pelosi proudly announces new minimum wage of $45,000 per year for House staffers.  Congressional Democrats take care of their own with Speaker Nancy Pelosi proudly announcing that House staffers will be compensated at a minimum pay rate of $45,000 per year, a figure that will be a significant bump for many young staff members who work long hours.  On Friday, Madame Speaker sent out a "Dear Colleague" letter with the good news, "I am pleased to announce that, pursuant to the statutory authority of the Speaker in 2 U.S.C. 4532, the House will for the first time ever set the minimum annual pay for staff at $45,000."

Pelosi commits the United States to Ukraine's victory.  Nancy Pelosi traveled to Kyiv for a photo-op with the world's new "freedom fighter," Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.  She announced to the world that "America stands firmly with Ukraine" and "Our commitment is to be there for you until the fight is done," and later tweeted to the Ukrainian people that "we are with you until victory is won."  So now its the Speaker of the House's turn to get her "Churchill" moment.  This would be laughable if the consequences were not so serious.  It is another step on the road to a wider war.  Washington, it seems, is a town full of Churchill wannabes.  How many more members of Congress will have had their picture taken with Zelensky by election day?

Pelosi, Schiff, McGovern bring a bad smell to Ukraine.  In a sign that Ukraine's just war for survival against Russian attack is growing more partisan-politicized and subject to domestic U.S. politics, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has turned up in Kyiv, along with six other extremely rabid leftist Democrats.  The junketeers met with Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky, who welcomed them warmly, as he always does with assorted political pilgrims these days. [...] Start with the fact that this wasn't Joe Biden or his wretched vice president, Kamala Harris, who were doing the visiting.  Nor was it Secretary of State Antony Blinken, who presumably should be handing this kind of diplomacy.  These were the most partisan of legislative hacks, some of them way down on the totem pole, with absolutely no claim nor right to be practicing diplomacy.  Presumably, they were there to go fact-finding, as congressional delegations do, but in this meeting, there were "talks."

Pelosi makes surprise trip to meet Zelensky in Kyiv.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi made a surprise trip to Kyiv as part of the first congressional delegation to the capital since Russia began its invasion of Ukraine.  Pelosi and her delegation, who made the visit on Saturday, met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in person to discuss the United States's efforts to support Ukraine's defense.  "Meeting with the Speaker of the US House of Representatives in Kyiv," Zelensky said in a tweet.  "The United States is a leader in Ukraine's strong support in the fight against Russian aggression.  Thank you for helping to protect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of our state!"

Nancy Pelosi, the Wall Street queen, is heavily invested in China; this is why she won't investigate covid origins.  For some reason, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca.) refuses to launch investigations into the origins of the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19).  That reason, according to Peter Schweizer, author of Red-Handed:  How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win, is because she and her husband have strong financial ties to communist China.  There is a chance that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Ca.) will launch these investigations instead, but Schweizer does not want Pelosi to slip through the cracks.  She clearly needs to be probed and held accountable for whatever is unearthed about her treasonous financial endeavors with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).  "She and her family have strong financial ties in China," Schweizer said about Pelosi's Chinese investments.

Joe Rogan Doesn't Mince Words, Levels Nancy Pelosi for 'Insider Trading'.  The left has come down heavily in its effort to take Joe Rogan down for daring to say things against their prevailing narratives.  But it says something about Rogan that he's not afraid to continue to take on topics that might set them off — such as going after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and her husband for their profiting from stock options while they are in the position of promoting and regulating things that will affect the value of those options.

I Learn Something New Every Day.  [Scroll down]  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tested positive two days after she closely mingled with, hugged and kissed President Biden.  Her spokesperson said she was fully vaccinated and boosted and will quarantine as she encouraged "everyone to get vaccinated, boosted and test regularly."  While she stood close to the President as they celebrated the signing of an executive order to remedy the "glitch" in Obamacare, and she hugged and kissed him, the White House insists she and the president were not in "close contact" something the CDC indicates is sustained unmasked contact within six feet for more than 15 minutes. [...] Using the CDC guideline on what constitutes "close contact" church services were banned, and businesses, schools, and restaurants were shuttered.  This would not be the first time Speaker Pelosi violated CDC guidelines.  Even as she required all House members to wear masks on the floor of the House (and fined those who disobeyed) she ignored the mask rules then in place to get her hair done.  The rule rescinding masking in the House was lifted at the end of February, in time for the State of the Union address.

Rand Paul:  Did Nancy Pelosi Receive Monoclonal Antibodies?  Friday, during an appearance on FNC's "Hannity," Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) suggested there was a possibility of a double standard for Democratic politicians and the public for receiving monoclonal antibodies.  The Kentucky Republican U.S. Senator asked if recently COVID-diagnosed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) had received those therapies while they were restricted for those in the general public.

Lawmakers and experts spar over congressional stock trading.  Lawmakers and experts sparred over proposed regulations on the ability of members to trade stocks while in office.  The House Administration Committee heard from five experts on financial ethics and government accountability during a hearing about the ethics of trading stocks while in office, where lawmakers potentially have access to lucrative, nonpublic information.  The Thursday hearing followed an uproar in recent months over House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband making millions off stock trades.

Nancy Pelosi's Jan. 6 Committee Is Following The Same Pattern As The Evil John Doe Investigation.  Fifteen months after Congress certified the 2020 election, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's hand-picked Jan. 6 commission is still forging ahead with partisan theater.  The committee has seized bank records of peaceful protesters, routinely made up evidence to tarnish Republican leaders, spied on federal lawmakers' phone records, threatened press freedom, and is now admittedly trying to criminalize GOP's fundraising on the issue of election security, as The Federalist's Editor-in-Chief Mollie Hemingway reported last month.  The unserious committee has been exploiting the Capitol riot for political ends since it happened, but as time passes, Democrats' abuses of power become more brazen — and they call to mind some of the most egregious instances of neglect of the rule of law and civil liberties in our country's recent history.

Pelosi Remarks on Gas Prices Show Dems [are] Planning More Pain for Americans.  It's long past time that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) should have retired.  I'm not a big advocate of hide-bound rules as to age or term limits.  But in her and in Joe Biden, you see the problems of advanced age and related issues that are harming our country.  Of course, it's not just the age, but lousy policies that they are trying to impose on us as well, such as Joe Biden deciding that instead of working on promoting more American production he's just going to drain our reserve of petroleum dry to try to drop prices before the midterms so Americans won't decimate Democrats in November.

Pelosi's Husband Buys $2M in Tesla Stock as Dems Push Green Handouts.  Nancy and Paul Pelosi are making a killing on the Hill.  If there's a dime to be made on an inside trade, that's where you'll find Nancy and her husband Paul.  Their corrupt trading practices have been well documented here on the DD and elsewhere — but here's a reminder:  "The Pelosis participated in at least 10 IPOs," GAI President Peter Schweizer told Jesse Watters on Fox News.  "The fact that a politician's family is allowed to participate in an investment that when it goes public generally doubles in value is a real indicator that there's a problem."  Most recently, and crazy enough not for the first time, Paul Pelosi "rolled the dice" on some Tesla stock.  Since Pelosi's purchase, Tesla's share prices have increased nearly 19% to over $1,036 a share.  Is he just that good?  Or could there be something else at play.  It's something else.

While Americans Suffer Their Economy, Detached Pelosi Orders Catered Luncheon and Dancers for Her Entertainment.  It is important for us to accept the reality of our current situation.  As millions of American citizens are suffering the economic damage from rising inflation, gas prices, and the working class are trying to figure out just how to make ends meet, it becomes critical to know how our political leadership is responding.  This video is an unfortunate representation of the state of our union.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi holds court, hosting a catered luncheon and calling for dancers to perform for her and the congressional delegation.  [Video clip]

Congress's St. Patrick's Day luncheon exposed our dreadful political class.  [Scroll down]  But back to foreign policy, where Biden seems intent upon inciting a completely unnecessary war against a nuclear nation.  Thus, Biden used the occasion of the luncheon to lob the kind of immature insults at Putin that would be embarrassing in a high school cafeteria:  [Biden quote omitted for brevity.]  I'm not quarreling with Biden's description of Putin, who is a very bad man.  I am quarreling with this kind of locker room insult from a president who, along with his party, is seemingly determined to pitch America into World War III.  The high school feeling was also apparent when Nancy Pelosi, her voice quavering uncontrollably, read aloud a poem from Bono (of U2) celebrating Ukraine president Zelensky as a new saint.  This is the type of poem that would have been a standout in the remedial 9th-grade English class of a failing public high school:  [Video clip]

Nancy Pelosi Channels Her Inner Allen Ginsberg.  The setting for Speaker Pelosi's poetry-reading masterpiece was at the annual Friends of Ireland Luncheon hosted by the speaker on Capitol Hill on Thursday, St.  Patrick's Day.  The event started off as a competition between Pelosi and President Joe Biden for who could be the most moronic.  Biden got off to a fast start when, shortly after being introduced, he explained "I may be Irish, but I'm not stupid."  Don't sell yourself short, Mr. President, quite clearly, you're capable of being both.  But Speaker Pelosi was not going to be outdone.

Has Nancy Pelosi Been Drinking on the Job Again?  It Sure Looks That Way.  The country is in the very best of hands — Nancy Pelosi's trembling hands at the command of what appears to be a cocktail-impaired brain.  Trust me.  I know the drinking signs.  It's my considered opinion that the San Francisco-based House Speaker is filled to the gills in the clip you're about to witness.  It's bad enough when a Blue Enclave progressive tries to explain military and geopolitical events, like an internet rando on fentanyl trying to explain rocket science to Elon Musk.  Nevertheless, Pelosi's love for the camera, though unrequited, necessitates that she publicly pontificate whenever the red light comes on, even when her BA count is double the legal limit for driving.  Sadly, there are no penalties for public speaking while intoxicated, certainly not for Bay Area Democrats.  [Video clip]

Pelosi claims government spending is 'reducing the national debt' and 'not inflationary'.  On Friday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi addressed a press conference at the House Democratic Issues Conference, telling the audience that President Joe Biden's Build Back Better agenda will not add to inflation or the nation's debt.  The point came in response to a question regarding executive action.  [Video clip]

J6 Fishing Expedition and 2022 Election Goals Could Reveal Why Pelosi Opened Satellite DC Police Offices in Key States.  Anyone who has followed politics for any amount of time knows the Nancy Pelosi "January 6th Committee" is an opposition research effort under the guise of a House investigation.  The goal is to frame an extremist narrative favorable for the Democrats in the 2022 mid-term election.  That is the entire goal.  What the Mueller probe was to President Trump, the J6 Committee is to the MAGA movement.  Everyone, and I do mean e.v.e.r.y.o.n.e in Washington DC knew Robert Mueller was appointed as special counsel for one reason, to target President Trump, weaken his administration and ultimately remove him from office.  Not a single entity in DC did not know that was the goal.  The same is true here.  Everyone in DC knows Nancy Pelosi's J6 Committee is intended to target Democrat political opposition.  That is the goal.  That is ONLY the goal.  Not a single entity in DC does not know that is the goal.  The Republican House members who voted to authorize the J6 Committee know the goal is to target Republicans.  Please repeat that as many times as you need in order to dispatch your battered conservative status.  The Republican House members who voted to authorize the J6 Committee are OUR ENEMY every bit as much as the Democrats.

Drunk, High, Or Mentally Unstable?  Pelosi's Latest Press Conference.  At times she even makes Clueless Kamala sound smart, which is a hard thing to accomplish.  [Video clip]

An SOTU Postscript.  A couple of observations on two strange aspects of last night's event that have been widely commented upon.  First, Nancy Pelosi's bizarre actions while Joe Biden was talking about soldiers who were exposed to toxic "burn pits."  What on earth was she doing?  [Video clip]  And am I the only one who thinks that, with the plastic surgery she has had, Pelosi has taken on something of the air of a high school girl, as in this performance during the SOTU?

Video of Nancy Pelosi's Gestures During State of the Union [has been] Viewed 1.5 Million Times.  Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has caused confusion with her reaction to a moment during President Joe Biden's State of the Union speech on Tuesday.  Biden was speaking about the dangers soldiers faced in Afghanistan and Iraq when Pelosi's response to this topic sparked debate on social media.  Biden said one of the dangers was soldiers breathing in toxic smoke from burn pits while at their bases.  At this moment, Pelosi began to rise to her feet while rubbing her knuckles together and smiling.  Applause can also be heard from the crowd.  This moment has been viewed over 1.5 million times after being posted on multiple Twitter accounts.  Some people in the comments questioned whether it was an appropriate response while other people chose to mock the House Speaker.

Pelosi: You're Too Dumb to Appreciate Joe Biden.  If you don't love Joe Biden for all the great things he's done for this country, you're an ignorant moron.  Well, at least that's what House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell on Tuesday [3/1/2022]. [...] It doesn't matter that inflation and high gas prices are killing your monthly budget, or that Joe Biden botched the withdrawal from Afghanistan and the nation's response to COVID, or the border crisis.  If all you see are things that he's actually done, you can't possibly know about the things he claims he's done... which of course is all wonderful, historic, and perfect.

Biden won't get a war to save his presidency.  The Drudge Report spent yesterday saying war being imminent in Ukraine.  Nancy Pelosi said, "We think that an assault on Ukraine is an assault on democracy."  No, having one of your Palace Guards kill an unarmed protester in cold blood is a real threat to our constitutional republic.  She also said, "We understand the loss of life, the damage, the collateral damage to civilians, to military and the rest are severe if he decides to invade."  Good, she can send her son Paul Jr. and Biden can send Hunter to spill their blood.  Nancy also said, "The mothers in Russia don't like their children going into war.  He's had to experience that, forgive the experience, body bag from the moms, before."  How many body bags did Obama create?  But American mothers don't matter to Democrats.  Only Russian mothers matter.

Pelosi: Who, us?  Nobody wants to defund the police.  When Missouri Democratic Congresswoman and squad member Cori Bush said she was still going all-in on defunding the police, the rest of her party immediately began to get nervous.  You could see some of the more politically savvy Democrats edging away from Bush, but this weekend Speaker Nancy Pelosi decided to publicly hang her out to dry.  During a stop on her tour of the Sunday morning shows, Pelosi put out the word in no uncertain terms, essentially declaring that Cori Bush is on her own.  The "defund the police" message is not part of the Democratic Party platform in 2022. Of course, she tried to be a bit more gentle by tossing in the phrase, "with all the respect in the world for Cori Bush."

Pelosi's Watergate.  There has been much written lately about the similarity of Watergate and Special Counsel John Durham's revelations about the Clinton campaign and others spying on Donald Trump, both as a candidate and a sitting president.  There is also the entry into the offices of Rep. Troy Nehls by the Capitol Police.  They are under the control of Nancy Pelosi, of whom Rep. Nehls has been critical regarding her so-called J-6 investigation. [...] Were it not for a dishonest and totally biased MSM, the call for investigations, incarcerations, and resignations would be plastered all over the news.  We don't have to imagine what the press would have done had it been President Trump doing the spying, because the press swallowed the lies about Trump and Russia and ran it for over a year.  Even though that link has been debunked, few MSM agencies have had the journalistic integrity to correct their previous claims.  Now that the shoe is on the other foot, the silence is deafening.  This story makes Watergate look like child's play.  Where are the Woodwards and Bernsteins of today?

Nancy Pelosi u-turns on members buying stock shares despite her husband raking in millions.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is now on board with a potential ban on members of Congress trading stocks, but wants it to include all branches of government including the Supreme Court, she said Wednesday [2/9/2022].  The powerful Democrat has shot down the idea multiple times in the past, despite criticism over her husband raking in millions on the stock exchange.  But the California legislator is now working with other Democratic leaders on how to get it done, according to Punchbowl News, after caving to pressure from both sides of the aisle and both chambers of Congress.

'Breadcrumbs Lead to Speaker's Office,' Rep. Jim Banks Warns.  Rep. Jim Banks heavily criticized House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for her failure to hand over key documents related to the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, saying in a Monday interview that Republican lawmakers believe the severity of the riot was due to a "systemic breakdown and failure at the highest levels of the Capitol Police."  The Indiana Republican, who is on a panel of GOP lawmakers that is unofficially investigating the riot, spoke with The Daily Signal following an Axios report headlined "GOP's shadow Jan. 6 committee targets Capitol Police 'negligence.'"  Banks criticized the article and strongly disputed any implication that Republicans are focusing negative attention on Capitol Police officers themselves, noting that Republicans believe it is the leadership of the police force that was at fault.

Nancy Pelosi spent almost $500K on private jets despite climate preaching.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has shelled out nearly $500,000 for private flights since October 2020, despite her claims that the US has a "moral obligation" to address climate change.  The California Democrat's campaign paid Virginia-based Advanced Aviation Team a total of $423,707.62 for travel services on 10 occasions between October 2020 and December 2021, according to Federal Election Commission filings first reported by Fox News.  In January last year, the Pelosi team also paid California-based Clay Lacy Aviation $65,457.23, bringing the campaign's private jet expenses to a grand total of $489,164.85.  In August last year, Pelosi paid Advanced Aviation $67,604.93.  Three months later, the House speaker led a contingent of Democratic lawmakers to the COP26 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Glasgow, Scotland, where Pelosi described tackling the climate crisis as a "religious thing."

Nancy takes a knee for Beijing at the Winter Olympics.  Nancy Pelosi, stock-trader extraordinaire, doubles as an adviser to America's Olympic athletes.  And her wise, nuanced advice to them is simple:  "Shut up."  It would be a very bad idea, she says, to voice any political criticism at the games of the Chinese Communist Party or its glorious rule.  You may have missed her similar advice to LeBron James, as he kissed the backside of Beijing's dictators.  You may have missed her critique of the NBA, as it protected its highly-profitable franchise in China.  They were as compliant as any US multinational operating in Germany in the 1930s, eager to retain their profitable operations.  You may have missed Pelosi's full-throated defense of the NBA's Daryl Morey, general manager of the Houston Rockets, who tweeted his support of the Hong Kong protesters in 2019?  (He quickly backtracked under league pressure.)  Nope.  You didn't miss it.  Nancy's lips were sealed.  Of course, LeBron James, Nike and the NBA can say what they please.  This is America.  We have the free-speech rights, except at universities.

America's crime spike goes much deeper than policing or the lack of it.  [Scroll down]  How did Nancy Pelosi get as wealthy as she is on a public servant's salary?  We're not stupid.  If the people that run this country cannot manage to follow the law, then why should anyone else?  We work 40 or more hours a week just to have our paychecks snatched by the government for taxes.  Sometimes we rob Peter to pay Paul just to keep the electricity on and then, when we turn on the television, we hear Nancy Pelosi claim that "we're a nation of laws" right after she made a fortune in Tesla stock.  Come on, man!

Pelosi urges US Olympians not to anger 'ruthless' Chinese government.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday urged US athletes competing in the Beijing Winter Olympics to keep mum on China's human rights abuses because the country's government is "ruthless."  Pelosi issued the warning during testimony at a Congressional-Executive Commission on China.  She acknowledged the US has a moral obligation to condemn the rights violations — but insisted the Olympic games were not the proper venue for athletes to voice their concerns.  "If we do not speak out against human rights violations in China, because of commercial interests, we lose all moral authority to speak out against human rights violations anywhere," Pelosi said.  But addressing athletes, she added:  "Do not risk incurring the anger of the Chinese government because they are ruthless."

Smoking gun documents tie Nancy Pelosi's son to fraud and bribery scheme.  Nancy Pelosi's son listed himself as the owner of a flop house tied to a fraud and bribery scheme prosecuted by the FBI, in documents newly unearthed by  In the documents, Paul Pelosi Jr. signed statements that he was the property owner, 'the party legally and financially responsible for this proposed construction activity' and agreed to 'abide by all applicable laws and requirements that govern Owner-Builders as well as employers.'  And they even show Pelosi Jr., 53, applying for one of the very same permits that building inspector Bernie Curran and 'permits expeditor' Rodrigo Santos have been indicted for.

Nancy's plan for the SOTU.  Could it get any more blatant than this?  Nancy Pelosi has put forward a plan to limit the actual in-person attendance of the upcoming State of the Union address to 25 people. [...] But we know what it is, don't we?  The day is not far off when Joe will step to the podium and begin conversing with Corn Pop (or Satchel Paige, one or the other), or start swatting imaginary flies, or screaming that velociraptors are coming in the doors.  This is inevitable, and everybody outside the Beltway knows it.  Just last week, during his infrastructure speech in Pittsburgh, Joe went into a wild rant about the woes encountered by the parents of diabetics, who, according to him, have to choose between food and insulin for the children.  Voice growing ever louder, Joe pledged to do something about it... evidently forgetting, if he ever actually knew, that it was he, Joe Biden, who eliminated, by executive order, the Trump program aiding poor families in obtaining insulin and other medicines.

Pelosi wants just 50 House members to attend Biden's State of the Union over Omicron fears.  Only 50 House members may get to attend President Joe Biden's first State of the Union address as the Omicron surge has resulted in 24 lawmakers getting COVID in one month.  On Tuesday, Axios reported that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy told colleagues that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi warned him that she may limit the number of attendees from the House to 25 members per party.  Biden will deliver his State of the Union address on March 1.

Wild Redistricting To Give Democrats More House Seats: 'Brazen Attempt' At 'Rigging' Election To Keep Pelosi Speaker.  Wild redistricting in a proposed congressional map from New York Democrats will give Democrats a huge advantage in the state, sparking criticism that the "egregiously biased map" is merely a "brazen and outrageous attempt at rigging the election to keep Nancy Pelosi as speaker."  According to analysis at FiveThirtyEight, the newly unveiled map "severely" tilts the "playing field toward Democrats": [...] "Such an egregiously biased map was only possible because of the weakness of New York's new bipartisan redistricting commission," FiveThirtyEight explained.  "Under state law, the legislature may simply draw its own map after rejecting the commission's first two proposals.  Even worse, the commission didn't even work as intended."  As highlighted by The Washington Post, the new map "erases the upstate seat held by Rep. Claudia Tenney (R) and creates a deep blue district in the middle of the state."

Nancy Pelosi's son is embroiled in sixth FBI probe.  Nancy Pelosi's son is embroiled in an FBI investigation into a San Francisco official who was allegedly bribed to turn a blind eye to a corrupt real estate plot.  Paul Pelosi Jr. and at least three of his associates were interviewed by agents in a five-year investigation that resulted in an indictment of a prolific building permit fixer for allegedly bribing a city official.  The bribery scheme included an alleged plan to remove permit violations on a squalid flop house owned by Pelosi Jr.'s girlfriend.

Nancy Pelosi announces another run for Congress, ending retirement rumors.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Tuesday that she will seek another term in Congress, ending months of speculation over whether she would be retiring. The 81-year-old California Democrat revealed her plan in a video posted to Twitter, in which she said that "much more needs to be done to improve people's lives."  "Our democracy is at risk because of the assaults on the truth, the assault on the US Capitol and the state-by-state assault on voting rights," she said in the video.  "This election is crucial.  Nothing less is at stake than our democracy.  But as we say, we don't agonize, we organize and that is why I am running for reelection to Congress and respectfully seek your support.  I'd be greatly honored by it and grateful for it.  Thank you so much."  Pelosi was first elected to Congress in 1987 and has been the top House Democrat since 2003.  In 2007, she became the first woman to hold the Speaker's gavel.

The Editor says...
Ask yourself why an 81-year-old multi-millionaire would be so resistant to retirement.

Nancy Pelosi Makes a Panic Move and Sets up a Showdown With Her Own Party.  The coming midterm elections are not looking good for Democrats.  In fact, short of some kind of divine intervention, Joe Biden's party is going to get absolutely boat-raced. [...] In the midst of that hostile environment, numerous Democrat incumbents have announced their retirements, which is usually a sure-fire sign of coming doom.  You may recall all the articles from 2018 noting how Republican retirements were a very bad sign.  Indeed, they did precede a blue wave, and the reverse is now occurring in 2022.  Just how bad are things?  Nancy Pelosi may have given us a hint today with this cringe video (she apparently found the old "Full House" set), in which she announced that she's running for re-election.

Support For Pelosi and Schumer Led Congress Crashes By Half — Among Democrats.  Even Democrats are souring on Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer as leaders of Congress.  Last spring, Democrats had a 50% approval of the Pelosi and Schumer led Congress, but now it has dropped to 26%.

Nancy Pelosi Calls House Dem's the 'Greatest Collection of Intellect and Integrity.  Nancy Pelosi isn't known for her intellect or honesty, but lately she has made even more idiotic statements than usual.  Not only has she declared Joe Biden as one of the greatest presidents and thinks he's doing a fantastic job, she also believes that house Democrats are the greatest collection of intellect and integrity. [...] Pelosi has made over $100 mil engaging in insider trading and selling America's secrets to whoever will foot the bill.  She has robbed Americans of tax dollars by funneling billions to her own district, only for that money to be dispersed to her allies.  Democrats have as much integrity as the criminal who gets caught with his hand in the cookie jar and then plays the victim.  [Video clip]

Nancy Pelosi is wrong — members of Congress have no reason to trade stocks.  A decade ago, Congress passed the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge Act.  This law was supposed to do what it sounds like it would do — stop members of Congress from enriching themselves using inside knowledge that others lack.  But unfortunately, the law is toothless, imposing tiny fines for violations.  Some lawmakers from both parties want to fix this problem by simply banning members of Congress and their families from trading individual stocks on the stock market.  They are right to pursue this goal, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is wrong to block them.

Nancy Pelosi's son, Paul, seems to have an affinity for corrupt business people.  Over 2,500 years ago, Aesop moralized, "A man is known by the company he keeps."  By that metric, although Nancy Pelosi's son, Paul Pelosi, Jr., has never been charged with a crime, I'm not sure I'd leave him in a room with my silverware.  I say that because I've just read the Daily Mail exclusive report noting that Paul has been involved in five companies probed by federal agencies for fraud and other serious financial crimes. [...] Too many people in our government are essentially American oligarchs.  They use politics, not for their country's advancement, but for their own.  Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi both have enriched themselves and their families while leaving Americans in worse condition with every passing year.  I sincerely hope these morally bankrupt people aren't the political leaders America deserves because, if that's true, America has turned into a pathetic, utterly corrupt, third-world oligarchy.

Nancy Pelosi's son Paul was involved in five companies probed by the feds.  Nancy Pelosi's son was involved in five companies probed by federal agencies — but has never been charged himself, a investigation reveals.  A shocking paper trail shows Paul Pelosi Jr.'s connections to a host of fraudsters, rule-breakers and convicted criminals.  His years-long repeated business dealings raise two troubling questions Nancy's son has been unable to answer:  why did he get mixed up with such unsavory characters over and over, and how involved was he with the criminal investigations into his fraudster colleagues?

Nancy Pelosi's Eyebrows Are a Thing — No, Really.  As if we didn't already have more than enough target-rich material about which to blister Nancy Pelosi on a daily basis, the 81-year-old woman's creepy eyebrows are now a thing on Twitter, where they — and she — continue to be mocked and ridiculed in hilarious fashion.  So, Pelosi did an interview with CBS's "Face the Nation" this week in which she yet again spewed silly nonsense about how the evil Republicans are undermining democracy, but it wasn't the contents of Madam Speaker's delusional diatribe that became a social media hit.  Not even close.

Democrat Sen. Jeff Merkley Admits Pelosi's Stock Trading Sways Her Legislative Judgment.  Democrat Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR) on Monday admitted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-CA) husband's stock trading activity sways her legislative judgment.  While American workers are not privy to much of the information that high-ranking members of Congress possess, Pelosi believes lawmakers and their spouses should be permitted to continue trading stocks with a small degree of transparency.

Leftists have a cow over Tucker Carlson's observations about Nancy Pelosi's strange new appearance.  House speaker Nancy Pelosi apparently has had some plastic surgery.  It didn't go well.  Tucker Carlson was on the scene to state what everyone was thinking:  [Video clip] [...] No getting older gracefully for her.  No "women can be attractive at any age," as the former supermodel Polina Porizhkova has favorably been received as declaring.  Just weird status-symbol plastic surgery, the kind that very wealthy women get to impress their social-X-ray friends out on the Pacific Heights cocktail circuit.  No, it doesn't make her look better, but in her circles, who cares?  It isn't actually about looks.  It's about "hain't she got money to do it?"  That's what this kind of plastic surgery at this age projects:  a sort of flinging of status symbols into the faces of the masses, to underline that she's of a very different class from the groundlings she claims to represent.

What Is Going On With Nancy Pelosi's Eyebrows?  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi urges passage of federal voting rights legislation amid GOP changes to local election laws:  "What the Republicans are doing across the country, is really a legislative continuation of January 6th."  But all that nonsense aside, it looks like Nancy [has] crazy eyebrows.  [Video clip]

Nancy Pelosi's Legacy Will Come to Haunt Democrats.  Despite speculation to the contrary, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is reportedly running for reelection in her San Francisco-based congressional district.  But she is expected to honor a term-limit deal she made with a group of House Democrats ready to oust her in 2019, returning in a much-diminished role.  Party leader since 2003 and speaker from 2007 through 2011 and again since 2019, Pelosi has accrued a legacy that Democrats have good reason to regret.  She largely managed to let down both the progressive and moderate wings of her party.  Though she was never popular at the national level, her weak performance has been somewhat surprising given her successful first run as House speaker.  Since Democrats recaptured the House in the 2018 election, Pelosi has continuously caved to the fringes of her party.

The Supreme Court and Congress Humiliate Themselves.  Not far from the hallowed halls of the Supreme Court, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her pals are trying yet again to make more of the January 6 riot than facts would warrant. [...] Not many are buying this nonsense, though.  A recent survey indicates that the majority of us think that it was not an insurrection (something the government hasn't even charged) but a three-hour riot that got out of hand.  Perhaps if the Democrats had some winning policies, they could stop concentrating on Donald J. Trump, whose popular support today far surpasses that of the President, Vice-President and Nancy Pelosi.

House Speaker Pelosi invites President Biden to deliver his first State of the Union on March 1.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has invited President Biden to on March 1 deliver his first official State of the Union address to a Joint Session of Congress.  In a letter to the president, the speaker wrote, "Indeed, this past year has been historic:  with the life-saving American Rescue Plan, once-in-a-century Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and, soon, the truly transformational Build Back Better Act!  In that spirit, I am writing to invite you to address a Joint Session of Congress on Tuesday, March 1, to share your vision of the State of the Union."  Biden has not yet formally accepted the invitation.

Nancy Pelosi makes millions off tech stocks, and scoffs at push to ban congressional trades.  Nancy Pelosi is scrambling to quash bipartisan efforts to ban stock trading by Congressional lawmakers — even as she and her husband have raked in as much as $30 million from bets on the Big Tech firms Pelosi is responsible for regulating.  Late last month, the House Speaker disclosed that the Pelosis scooped up millions in bullish call options for stocks including Google, Salesforce, Micron Technology and Roblox.  At the same, some insiders say she has slow-walked efforts to rein in Big Tech.  Days later, Pelosi brushed off worries over stock picking by lawmakers, claiming it was part of the "free-market economy" — comments that made Democratic insiders "blood boil," people close to the speaker told The [New York] Post.

Stefanik Torches Pelosi Over J6: Speaker 'Bears Responsibility' for Capitol Incident.  New York GOP Rep. Elise Stefanik is torching House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on the one-year anniversary of the incident at the U.S. Capitol on January 6.  In a scathing press release, Stefanik said that Pelosi shared blame for the riot that occurred on January 6, 2021.  Stefanik, who serves as House GOP Conference chair, thanked law enforcement for their work to control the chaos last year.  She also condemned Pelosi for ultimately being the one "responsible" for leaving the Capitol prone to attack.

'What is she hiding?' Top Republican accuses Pelosi of coverup by withholding Jan. 6 documents.  The top Republican on the House committee that oversees U.S. Capitol security is blasting Speaker Nancy Pelosi for refusing to release key evidence showing the security planning prior to the Jan. 6 riots and is warning that the police force that protects lawmakers has not reformed itself enough to avoid another tragedy.  "We know there were intelligence analysis failures at the Capitol Police," Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Ill.) told the John Solomon Reports podcast during an interview Thursday on the one-year anniversary of the Capitol riots.  And frankly, John, I don't think those have been corrected yet.  "Our job is to protect the Capitol, and they're making the same bad decisions," he said.

Nancy Pelosi is Again Confronted on Not Giving Americans 'Full Story' of Jan. 6.  Speaker Nancy Pelosi may have been the mastermind of the partisan Jan. 6 committee, which is comprised of anti-Trump Democrats and fledgling Republicans.  But far from seeking to give Americans the "whole truth and nothing but the truth" about what happened during the Capitol riots on that date one year ago, she and her committee appear to be acting as "gatekeepers" who release only the information that conforms to a pre-existing narrative of events.

Ranking GOP Member Exposes Pelosi's Obstruction to Jan 6 Security Records.  Ranking Member for the House Administration Committee Rodney Davis (R-IL) has unveiled new evidence that Pelosi is obstructing access to records relating to the security preparedness of the Capitol on that infamous day.  Davis wrote a letter to speaker Pelosi on January 3, 2022 laying out the timeline as proof for his accusations against Pelosi's obstruction:  "In the immediate aftermath of January 6th, Republicans began an examination of the Capitol's security vulnerabilities.  On January 13, 2021, as the Ranking Republican Member of the House Administration Committee, I sent letters to the Acting House Sergeant-at-Arms, the House Chief Administrative Officer, and the Acting Chief of the U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) asking them to preserve all records relating to January 6th" the letter states.

Pelosi [is] accused of hiding info on her role in security breakdown on Jan. 6.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is concealing information about her culpability in the security breakdown during the Jan. 6 riot, according to Republican lawmakers who have been pursuing those documents since immediately after the attack on the U.S. Capitol.  Rep. Rodney Davis of Illinois said Mrs. Pelosi is stonewalling.  He is the top Republican on the House Administration Committee, which oversees the management of the Capitol complex.  "The Sergeant at Arms, at the direction of the speaker has refused to provide us their communications surrounding Jan. 6.  I believe those records will show there was a lot of communications and coordination between the speaker's office and law enforcement officials leading up to and on Jan. 6," Mr. Davis wrote in a statement Tuesday to The Washington Times.

Nancy Pelosi expected to 'step down next year'.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is expected to step down at the end of this Congress after nearly two decades in Democratic leadership, and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries is the new favorite to lead the party.  While Jeffries, N.Y., chair of the House Democratic Caucus, is the favorite, the debate over who will succeed Pelosi, Calif., could lay to bare the deep divide between progressives and moderates.  Future leaders of the party could differ in their ideas for how to counter the GOP, as they brace for the possibility of serious losses in the midterm elections.

There's a Reason Pelosi Doesn't Want Stock Restrictions on Lawmakers.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was asked in a press conference earlier this month whether members of Congress should be allowed to trade individual stocks, despite often having access to insider information.  Pelosi was all in favor of it, saying "We're a free-market economy" and that members of Congress "should be able to participate in that."  [Tweet]  Turns out that within a few days of that, Pelosi and her husband Paul bought millions in call options for Google, Salesforce, Roblox, and Disney stocks.  Some are raising questions about whether Pelosi is slow-walking bipartisan legislation that could adversely impact tech firms.  So that puts an even sharper question on her buying tech shares.

Stench of corruption:  Nancy Pelosi buys Big Tech call options.  Nancy Pelosi has grown very rich while in public office.  She's amassed a reported $120 million fortune on a $223,500 annual congressional salary.  And like Hillary Clinton, she's an expert stock picker.  In her case, she trades a lot on stocks of companies she writes the laws for, and somehow, it always seems to go her way.  Last year, her pick was Tesla.  This year?  All about Big Tech. [...] See how this works?  She ought to be forced by a bipartisan group of Squadsters and Republicans to hold a vote on the measure she's blocking this year.  And come November, Republicans at the helm should put a stop to this kind of activity, and send in the special counsels to investigate these curious investing activities of Pelosi's.

Nancy Pelosi's millionaire husband Paul purchased millions in Alphabet, Disney and Salesforce stocks.  Just as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi pushed back on the idea that lawmakers should not be able to make individual stock trades while in office, her husband Paul bought shares in Google's parent company Alphabet, Disney and Salesforce worth millions.  'We're a free market economy,' Pelosi told reporters during a news conference on Dec. 15.  'They [lawmakers] should be able to participate in that.'  Two days later, Paul Pelosi bought stock in Alphabet worth between $500,001 and $1 million.  He also bought shares in Disney worth between $100,001 and $250,000.

Why Pelosi Just Can't Quit Jan. 6.  Pelosi's Stage 4 Trump Derangement Syndrome affliction has raged for at least five years, everybody knows that.  But at least when the Russian "collusion" nonsense finally and conclusively proved to be a hoax, she mostly let it go.  At least, publicly.  But Jan 6. occupies a different twisted crevasse of Pelosi's Trump-riddled brain.  Or does it?  Might she simply be using Jan. 6 to try to deflect from Biden's disastrous presidency?  I report, you decide.  Either way, Pelosi's Jan. 6 band plays on.

Gen. Michael Flynn Files Restraining Order Against Nancy Pelosi.  Gen. Michael Flynn, who knows a thing or two about witch hunts, is taking action to stop the latest one.  Naming all the members of the House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol as defendants, he has filed a complaint intended to stop a subpoena from that committee.  At the same time, according to the Western Journal, Flynn "filed a motion for a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction specifically" against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Smirnoff).  It is always refreshing, and far too rare, to see someone fighting back against this latter-day American version of the Stalinist show trials.

Michael Flynn sues Nancy Pelosi and Jan. 6 committee.  Former national security adviser Michael Flynn filed a lawsuit requesting a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction against the Jan. 6 committee and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday [12/21/2021].  Flynn's filing with the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida seeking declaratory and injunctive relief argues the committee has engaged in "outrageous intrusion" by issuing extensive subpoenas to Flynn and his family, as well as "secret seizure of his and his family's personal information from their telecommunications and/or electronic mail service providers."  The onetime national security adviser denied involvement in the Jan. 6 Capitol Hill riot that precipitated the congressional committee.

The Takers Are Taking Over.  In metropolitan areas, we are seeing well organized mobs storming high-end stores, grabbing merchandise, fleeing, and openly selling their stolen goods.  In Washington and state capitols, the progressive takers are demanding more and more free services and subsidies.  All of this while the earners try to survive in the face recurring lockdowns, oppressive mandates, and their inability to find willing workers.  Far too many struggle just to keep their businesses afloat.  Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, in response to the rash of smash and grab crimes asked, "Pray tell, where is this attitude of lawlessness coming from?"  The minority leader Kevin McCarthy shared the obvious answer:  "Speaker Pelosi should look in the mirror to see what caused the 'attitude of lawlessness' spreading across the country.  Democrat politicians defunded police, raised money for rioters, and pushed policies that are soft on crime.  They own this crime wave."

Tapper Calls Out Pelosi's Opposition to Making Congress More Ethical.  Subverting the expectations of some of his critics and going back to how he used to do things, CNN's Jake Tapper spent over eight minutes on Thursday's edition of The Lead going after Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for her opposition to measures that would make Congress more ethical and crackdown on insider trading.  He even brought on the former director of the Office of Government Ethics, Walter Shaub to take her to task.  Immediately after returning from a commercial break, Tapper announced it was time for a "conflict of interest watch."  He then likely made her fan base unhappy by warning that "Ethics experts" were "sounding the alarm today after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she would not support a ban on members of Congress and their spouses from trading stocks while in office."  Chief congressional correspondent Manu Raju joined him and noted the Business Insider investigation that found "found that 49 Members of Congress and 182 senior-level congressional staffers" were in direct violation of the 2012 STOCK Act that was passed in an attempt to keep insider trading from occurring.

AOC and Pelosi in open spat about Congress members trading in stocks.  Finally, I have an issue on which I can agree with Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.  The young solon from New York City is still jaded enough to call out the obvious conflicts of interest when members of Congress trade stocks over whose fates they may have inside information.  She is directly confronting her party's leader on the House, someone whose own daughter has warned of her ability to exact revenge ("she'll cut your head off").  Speaker Pelosi, for her part, has seen her husband accumulate a large fortune while she engaged in what is laughably called "public service."

Inside Nancy Pelosi's Husband's $5 Million Alphabet Options Windfall.  Did Paul Pelosi, the financier husband of House Speaker Nancy, profit off of insider Beltway scuttlebutt in June to make about $5 million on options contracts tied to Alphabet's stock?  On Wednesday evening [7/7/2021], Bloomberg News published a report titled "Pelosi's Husband Locked In $5.3 Million From Alphabet Options," which carried the subheadlines, "Action was week before House panel considered antitrust bills," and "Antitrust bills target Alphabet's Google, Apple, Amazon."  The story followed a Fox Business News piece looking at Pelosi's June trades, which were laid out in a July 2 disclosure form.  Both stories raise a connection between Pelosi's trades in Alphabet and a House Judiciary Committee's vote on a number of antitrust efforts aimed at big technology titans like Alphabet, Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Microsoft.  Some of the bills, which advanced from the subcommittee in July, aim to limit the market power or break up the companies entirely.  After politically charged investigations of Senators' stock trades in 2020 at the onset of the Coronavirus crisis, sleuths now comb the financial disclosure forms of congressional leaders for hints of insider trading.

Nancy Pelosi defends members of Congress trading stocks after report said 49 have violated conflict of interest law.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi continues to face blowback for her comments defending lawmakers who trade in stocks even while having access to potentially market-moving information.  'We are a free-market economy.  They should be able to participate in that,' Pelosi responded Wednesday when asked whether Members of Congress and their spouses should be banned from trading individual stocks.  She was responding to questions about a Business Insider report on dozens of lawmakers who have failed to meet requirements of the STOCK Act by failing turn in timely reports on their asset sales and purchases.

Queen of Corruption, Nancy Pelosi, Dismisses Her and Other Politicians Insider Trading.  In 2012 '60 Minutes' did an entire report exposing just how crooked Nancy Pelosi's family is in regards to insider trading, today she made it very clear that she wants the corruption to continue.  Pelosi, who has been in public office for over 30 years now, has been on a roll lately with her stock trading, beating even people such as Ray Dalio and Warren Buffett, two of the greatest stock traders of all time.  She has a perfect stock record trading record since she is the one crafting the bills for the people she's buying stocks in, she talks to them and then suddenly she's given an IPO, invests, makes millions and then the bill dies.  [Video clip]

Why Nancy Pelosi is wrong about lawmakers trading in stocks.  A few days back, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that lawmakers should not be prevented from trading stocks.  "We are a free market economy.  They should be able to participate in that," Pelosi said.  Her remarks are probably owing to the fact that Pelosi's husband holds stocks and options worth tens of millions of dollars. [...] Pelosi insisted that she had no involvement or prior knowledge of her husband's stock investments.  She also stated that she had no stock on her name.  However, the fact that Pelosi's husband made millions from various big tech firms that she is supposed to regulate, at the very least is a huge conflict of interest.  But Pelosi is not the only one.  Back in April, a study by the Campaign Legal Center discovered that both Republican and Democratic lawmakers bought and sold stocks hundreds of times throughout the coronavirus pandemic.  Many lawmakers had invested in industries whose importance and relevance were elevated owing to the COVID-19 pandemic.  They also sold their stocks from the hospitality industry, restaurants, and other sectors that were adversely affected by the pandemic.

Pelosi On Why Congress Should Be Allowed To Trade Stock After Dozens Broke Law:  We 'Should Be Able To'.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi brushed off questions on Wednesday about why Members of Congress should be allowed to trade stock when a recent report found that dozens allegedly broke insider trading laws.  "Madam Speaker, Insider just completed a five-month investigation finding that 49 Members of Congress and 182 senior Congressional staffers have violated the STOCK Act, the insider trading law," a reporter said.  "I'm wondering if you have any reaction to that." [...] "Why shouldn't they be banned?" the reporter asked.  "Because this is a free market and people — we are a free market economy," Pelosi responded.  "They should be able to participate in that."  Pelosi's husband, investor Paul Pelosi, reportedly trades large volumes of stocks on a regular basis, according to Business Insider.  Pelosi has a net worth of nearly $50 million, according to a separate report from Business Insider.

Impersonation Of Pelosi Will Make Your Weekend.  Her name is nurse Melissa[.]  [Video clip]

Nancy Pelosi Is Collecting the Phone Records of the Conservative Movement.  Yesterday [12/14/2021], former Rep. Mark Meadows was held in contempt by the same House he once served in before his appointment as former President Donald J. Trump's last chief of staff.  Meadows had been complying with Nancy Pelosi's appointed select committee tasked with looking into January 6 until it went too far.  Meadows is now suing Pelosi and the select committee.  In retaliation, the committee read out texts, and doctored texts, on Monday between Meadows and Fox News hosts and the president's son.  It was lost on Democrats and the media that the text messages actually prove there was no attempted coup from within the Trump administration or his family.  Meadows' lawsuit is serious but will D.C.'s political judges allow it to be heard on its merits or the politics of post-January 6?

Nancy Pelosi Is the Elephant in the Room of the January 6 Riot.  [Former White House Chief of Staff Mark] Meadows, who is also a former member of the House of Representatives, initially cooperated with the select panel, turning over more than 6,900 requested documents, including those now infamous emails he received during the riot from Fox News stars Sean Hannity, Brian Kilmeade, and Laura Ingraham.  But then the panel demanded Meadows show up for a deposition in which he would have to answer under oath and all questions put to him.  Doing that would have inevitably required him to violate presidential executive privilege because he was certain to be asked multiple questions about how he advised Trump on the riot and what Trump said in response, as well as how other aides did so.  Executive privilege is not absolute, but it is essential, according to the Supreme Court in its U.S. v Nixon decision that blew Watergate wide open.

Mob Whistleblower:  Pelosi Family Hired Me To Intimidate Ex-Girlfriend of Nancy Pelosi's Son.  Whistleblower Richie Albertini says that he was hired by the Pelosi family to be part of a harassment and intimidation shakedown campaign against Karena Feng, the ex-girlfriend of Nancy Pelosi's son Paul Pelosi Junior.  Albertini said that while he was working for an underground collections racket, he was handed an entire file on Karena "Apple" Feng, the target of the Pelosi family.  Albertini was told that Paul Pelosi Junior was effectively the owner of the "debt" that Feng supposedly owed.  Albertini, who has become a born-again Christian, told us about the "harassment, and basically stalking" activities of multiple collections enforcement companies that targeted Karena Feng.

Nancy Pelosi Puts on a Worrisome Display During Press Briefing.  [Nancy] Pelosi has had her share of moments in front of the cameras that have caused people to do double takes out of either concern or outright shock, but we may have just come across the worst one of all.  Take a look at what she said below during a press briefing late last week when she was asked "Why hasn't the House acted on that bill about Uyghur oppression, and do you think that it will?"  Can you make heads or tails of it?  I can't:  [Video clip]

The Biden-Buttigieg Pitch:  It's All Free!  Many Americans are concerned about the Democrats' orgy of spending, fearing particularly that pumping so much extra money into the economy will feed the inflation that has become the public's greatest economic concern of the moment.  So Biden came up with an argument that essentially said no one should worry because it will all be free.  "My Build Back Better agenda costs zero dollars," the president tweeted on Sept. 25.  White House chief of staff Ron Klain said, "The net cost of Build Back Better is zero." House Speaker Nancy Pelosi added, "The dollar amount, as the president said, is zero."  It was all preposterous, of course.  Two trillion dollars does not just appear out of nowhere.

Reports: Pelosi buys $25 million mansion in the Free State of Florida.  About 1,000 people per day are moving to Florida, the bulk of them coming from Democrat-dominated New York, New Jersey, and California.  They're fleeing high-tax lockdown states for a low-tax free state.  For a group which constantly gripes about the way he governs, Democrats sure don't seem to mind being governed by Ron DeSantis.  Nancy Pelosi is reportedly one of them.  The Democrat house speaker from the San Francisco Bay Area has purchased an 11,000-square-foot $25 million oceanview mansion in Florida, where she would be governed by Gov. DeSantis, according to reports on social media.

The Editor says...
Like many other climate alarmists, Ms. Pelosi is so worried about global warming, rising sea levels, and the "climate emergency" that she bought a huge house right on the beach!

Nancy Pelosi makes shocking $25 million retirement move.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is secretly a fan of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis — so much that she's prepared to flee California for a cozy retirement in Florida.  Amid rumors of Pelosi's pending retirement, there is also a rumor she just dropped a stunning $25 million to buy a huge mansion in the Sunshine State.

The Editor says...
Is it not amusing that Ms. Pelosi is moving to Florida?  Are there no mansions with a view of the ocean in California?  Sure there are, but nobody wants to live in California, if they can help it.  Not even multi-millionaire Nancy Pelosi.

Almost everything Pelosi is saying about Biden's 'Build Back Better' agenda is wrong.  The House voted Friday to advance President Joe Biden's multitrillion-dollar welfare and climate change spending legislation, the so-called "Build Back Better" agenda.  Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi led the charge and made an impassioned speech promoting the legislation.  There's just one problem:  Almost every single major factual claim she made about the "Build Back Better" agenda is false.  "Build Back Better is fully paid for.  It reduces the deficit and grows the economy," Pelosi said on the House floor.  This is incorrect on all counts.  The "Build Back Better" plan will likely cost taxpayers up to $4.9 trillion — and no, it isn't "fully paid for" by offsetting tax increases.  (Even if it were, that's an insane amount of money going to wasteful government spending schemes.)  The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office concluded that the bill would add $367 billion to the deficit over 10 years — or about $160 billion if one factors in the money possibly raised by the legislation's enhanced IRS tax crackdowns.

Pelosi Caught Without Mask at Swingers Bar in D.C. With Rep. Yvette Clarke.  Now, before you lose your mind over the title and the thought of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) at a swinger's bar, let me explain.  The name of the bar that she was at was Swingers.  The reason they call it Swingers is because, in addition to fancy cocktails and high-end street food, they have an adults-only mini-golf course or "crazy golf club," as they call themselves.  On the course, you are encouraged to drink, so Pelosi should fit right in.  Pelosi was at the bar with her arm around Rep. Yvette Clarke (D-NY), neither were wearing masks despite the city mandate to wear masks indoors in public businesses like bars and restaurants that is still in effect in Washington, D.C., and despite Pelosi's constant promotion of mask-wearing.

Washington's Newest Parlor Game:  "Joe, Kamala, Nancy, or Chuck?" Who Will Still Be in Office One Year From Now?  Many House Democrats were already uneasy with another term for Nancy Pelosi as Speaker, even before the legislative mess that the party now finds itself in.  Democrats lost seats in the 2020 election on Pelosi's watch, even as Biden landed in the White House and Democrats regained control of the Senate.  Progressives wanted one of their own to hold the gavel, and there were serious doubts that Pelosi could keep an increasingly fractured party together.  Those doubts appear to be well-founded amid the bungled messaging and process around Biden's signature infrastructure plan and social spending bill.  Were it not for 13 Republicans breaking ranks to vote with Democrats, the infrastructure bill would have failed in the House, a sign of Pelosi's inability to keep progressives in line.  In light of the results in this month's elections, it's also conceivable that Pelosi may want to avoid presiding over what could well be a historic collapse in the 2022 midterms.  If the 81-year-old Speaker does decide to retire early, she may still be able to name her heir and salvage some of her legacy — an inviting prospect for a career politician.

Mega-rich Pelosi objected to 'billionaire tax' in $1.75T spending bill.  Guess this was one tax hike that hit too close to home for Nancy Pelosi.  The speaker of the House of Representatives — who is reportedly the sixth-wealthiest member of Congress at over $100 million — took issue late last month with plans by fellow Democrats to levy a tax on unrealized capital gains to help pay for President Biden's massive $1.75 trillion social spending bill, according to a report.  The California Democrat reportedly described the wealth tax as "a publicity stunt."  A senior Democratic aide told The Post that Pelosi's reservations, which were first reported by the Washington Post, were due to the fact that Senate Finance Committee Chair Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) had not finalized legislation for the billionaire tax by the time the White House was to submit an updated framework for the social spending plan.

Getty Wedding Guest List Shows Exactly Who California's Political Elite Are Listening To.  If you were lucky, you might've seen billionaire oil heiress Ivy Love Getty strut up San Fransisco City Hall's red carpet-lined steps in her couture wedding gown last weekend.  Or, you might've witnessed police contain hundreds of homeless onlookers, making sure none of them ruined Getty's picture-perfect frame.  For the Saturday nuptials, Getty paid the San Francisco County Sheriff's Office a hefty $42,314 — which presumably helped cover the cost of keeping homeless populations out of the way and clearing the tents, trash, human feces, and heroine [sic] needles lining the streets — all so she and celebrity photographer Tobias Engel could have their fairytale wedding, complete with plenty of California elites.  A maskless House Speaker Nancy Pelosi officiated the ceremony.  Pelosi has been one of California's staunchest advocates for mask-wearing policies, such as those mandating the facial restraints for children age 5-17 in schools.  But when you're at a lavish billionaire wedding, rules don't apply.  Especially if you're the one making them.

Pelosi Says Women Face Particular Dangers From Climate Change.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., stated that climate change poses a greater risk to women than men across the world.  "[Climate change] is the existential threat of our time," Pelosi remarked Tuesday at COP26, the ongoing United Nations climate summit in Glasgow, Scotland, according to The New York Times.  "It's a threat multiplier that amplifies and accelerates existing inequities.  Eighty percent of people displaced by climate change globally are women."  The information cited by Pelosi appeared to originate from a 2018 U.N. report that referenced the 80% figure, but it is unclear which study the statistic came from.  The report further concluded that women tend to be harmed more than men during cataclysmic climate events because they remain in the home while men are "out in the open" and cultural gender roles "sometimes limit women's abilities to make quick decisions."  On Monday [11/8/2021], Pelosi traveled to the conference along with nearly two dozen fellow House Democrats, she announced.

The Editor says...
[#1] For the last fifty years, the Democrats have been telling the rest of us that men and women are interchangeable, if not equivalent.  They wanted women in combat for that reason.  They complain about the "gender pay gap."  Are women leaders and heroes or are they victims?  [#2] The assertion that "eighty percent of people displaced by climate change globally are women" is nearly meaningless.  Eighty percent of what number?  How many people — out of the total population of 7.9 billion — have been "displaced by climate change?"  Nobody moves from one place to another entirely because of bad weather.  And if they do move, they will find that the climate changes everywhere.

"That's an Applause Line": Pelosi Scolds Crowd For Not Clapping For Her.  While introducing Democrats at the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi scolded the audience after they failed to clap for her and other representatives.  The Speaker was introducing several lawmakers when the embarrassing moment took place. [...] "Uh thank you all for being here," Pelosi said as the crowd stayed completely silent.

Nancy Pelosi Blasted for Failing to Wear Mask While Attending Lavish Wedding.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has found herself in hot water after attending a luxurious wedding in San Francisco over the weekend — and failing to mask up as required by strict local guidelines.  Pelosi officiated the wedding of the artist and billionaire Ivy Getty at San Francisco City Hall before the celebration continued at the Getty Mansion.  Among the guests were California Governor Gavin Newsom, San Francisco Mayor London Breed, actress Anya Taylor-Joy, and many other prominent guests.  According to several photos of the attendees that emerged online, neither Pelosi nor the guests bothered to put on their masks.

Nancy Pelosi slammed as hypocrite for attending Ivy Getty's wedding maskless.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been branded a hypocrite for attending the lavish wedding of billionaire oil heiress Ivy Getty over the weekend without a mask — while children in California are being made to wear them in the state's schools.  Pelosi (D-Calif.), who officiated the ceremony at San Francisco City Hall, faced backlash on social media after photos of her mingling with other maskless wedding guests were published by Vogue on Tuesday [11/9/2021].  Critics immediately lashed out and questioned why it was mandatory for children to wear masks in California schools, but not for guests at the billionaire wedding of oil tycoon J. Paul Getty's great-granddaughter and Tobias Alexander Engel.  "Why does @SpeakerPelosi insist on children wearing masks when she's in more danger due to her age?  Seems like she's not concerned, why are you?" one person tweeted.

Where's Gavin Newsom been?  At Getty heiress's wedding.  The Twitter-sphere, The Daily Mail, and even The Sacramento Bee were looking everywhere for Gavin Newsom on Monday after the California governor canceled events and ducked out of sight for a few days.  Did he have COVID or a reaction to his recent booster shot?  Nope.  Newsom was at the Ivy Getty wedding on Saturday at City Hall, a guest and two media outlets say.  Getty is a billionaire oil heiress and great-granddaughter of oil tycoon J. Paul Getty.  Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi officiated the 500-person wedding under the grand rotunda of the closed City Hall.

Park in Pelosi's district slated to receive $200M probed by top GOP senator.  Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee ranking member John Barrasso, R-Wyo., probed the national park trust in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's, D-Calif., district on its federally required financial self-sufficiency.  Barrasso sent the letter to Presidio Trust chair Lynne Benioff regarding the trust's federal financial obligations.  The Presidio Trust in San Francisco oversees the national park and, per the legislation that established the trust, it must be financially self-sustainable.

Democrat leader Nancy Pelosi rambles about "privileged scrub" and bird baths in stunning demonstration of cognitive decline.  If you thought fake president Joe Biden had mental problems, meet the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi.  In a stunning, whirlwind tour of either stroke side effects or excessive alcohol consumption, Pelosi schooled Joe Biden on "stupid" by rambling about birth baths and "privileged scrub," whatever that means.  Her actual words:
So we are getting some bird and privilege.
I think mostly we're getting privileged scrub.
'Cuz privileged scrub is deadless to a bill.
Bird, nah, is important, but you have to take it out.
But privilege violation can take you out

Pelosi Chaos Hits Peak With Incoherent Video.  This video which was clipped from the press briefing that Pelosi gave yesterday was something else.  But in a way, it pretty much encapsulates the chaotic incoherence of the whole effort on the Pelosi/Biden legislative agenda.  What the heck is Pelosi saying here?  We're not sure.  The only thing we can say is that as awful as she is, she isn't as bad as Biden.  Consider how bad that is.  [Video clip]

Pelosi Plans to Keep the 'Spy on All Bank Accounts' Clause in the $3.5T bill.  Democrats, now the party of the hardcore Left, have a clause in the $3.5 trillion bill that will allow the government to look at any account making transactions — like paying rent — of $600 or more.  That takes in almost every American.  Politicians will be able to spy on everyone's account.  They will know everything about you.  At the same time, they plan to hire up to 95,000 new IRS employees to look for people not paying their fair share.  We have already seen what these people do with power and how they use it against people who don't agree with them.  What do you think they will do with this kind of power?  Will they cancel gun manufacturers?  Abuse conservatives and when they run out of them, abuse their own?  I watched a recent Bill O'Reilly podcast in which he said it will never remain in the bill.  He's naive if he believes that.  It's an important power grab for them.  Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who has been acting like a dicatator, was asked about it and she sounded pretty definite about it remaining in the bill.  She said the number is open to negotiations but not the clause.

Pelosi Says She Thinks "A Lot" About What She Would do if She "Ruled the World" During Remarks at NATO Parliamentary Assembly.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Monday [10/11/2021] said she thinks a lot about what she would do if she ruled the world.  Pelosi made the remarks during a NATO Parliamentary Assembly in Lisbon, Portugal.

Pelosi lectures reporters, says they 'could do a better job selling' Build Back Better.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi lectured congressional reporters Tuesday [10/12/2021] on Capitol Hill for not doing a good enough job "selling" President Biden's Build Back Better plan.  A new CBS News poll revealed only 10% of respondents said they knew "a lot of the specifics" of what's included in Biden's $3.5 trillion spending package.  Asked about the low number of Americans informed on the matter, Pelosi placed the blame not on the White House, but on the press.  "Do you think you need to do a better job at messaging, and going forward, how do you sell this?" CBS News' Nikole Killion wondered.  "Well I think you all could do a better job of selling it, to be very frank with you," Pelosi responded, saying the media has not done justice to the list of items in the bill, such as Family Medical Leave.

Watters probes Pelosi's wealth explosion, says she and husband seem to 'always know what the right investment is'.  As of 2020, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a Democrat, and her husband, real estate developer Paul Pelosi, had accumulated a combined $315,000,000 in wealth, and according to an investigation by Fox News host Jesse Watters, something about this doesn't seem right.  During a segment Saturday on Fox News' "Watters' World," he dug deep into her and her husband's past and discovered nuggets of information suggesting corruption may be afoot.  He started by noting that sometime after Pelosi's husband opened the real estate and venture capital investment and consulting firm Financial Leasing Services, Inc., he used his newly made "connections" to push her into politics, "helping her get elected to Congress in 1987."  Following her election to office, their wealth exploded. [...] The most recent wealth explosion occurred after she became House speaker again in 2018.  "That year, her financial disclosure report revealed a net worth of over 114 million.  Then in 2019, Pelosi's assets totaled up to a whopping 271 million.  And in 2020, those numbers went up even more to as high as 315 million bucks.  Quite a lot of crumbs," Watters said.  He then asked the question on everyone's mind:  "Where's the money coming from?"

'Watters' World' investigates Nancy Pelosi's financial dealings up to $315 million in assets.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has served in Congress for nearly 34 years and presently presides in a top-tier position as one of the most powerful figures in the U.S. government.  Amid a recent flurry of complicated decisions she's had to face as leader of her caucus, Fox News host Jesse Watters launched a "Watters' World" investigation into her financial dealings during her tenure in politics.  Last week, the Speaker was unable to pass the bipartisan infrastructure bill as progressives in her own party signaled their disapproval.  Watters condemned her policies, saying they're making it "harder and harder for average Americans to accumulate wealth," shackling them with taxes and "destroying the dollar with reckless spending."  The current salary of a Speaker of the House sits in the low six-figures, yet Pelosi is one of the richest members of Congress.

Twilight of the Democrat dinosaurs — Biden and Pelosi are finished.  For a bill that supposedly cost "nothing," Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi can't even persuade their own party to vote for it. [...] The Squad, which couldn't care less what voters think beyond their own dead blue districts, have declared "my way or the highway" on government taxing and spending to the moon, while a moderate blue-dog caucus of about 20, whose members aren't too public (out of fear of the Squad), doesn't like this crap at all, knowing that its passage for each of them means that a Republican will take their seat in 2022.  So naturally, the whole thing has crashed.  The spectacular failure of this $1-trillion spendathon, supposedly on "infrastructure," as well as their Bernie Sanders-crafted $3.5-trillion pork "reconciliation," is now Biden's and Pelosi's legacy.

Nancy Pelosi Accused Of Being Drunk After Slurred Speech, Weird Outbursts During Press Conference.  Conservatives are accusing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of being under the influence on Twitter after she exhibited strange behavior during a press conference.  A video clip of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) during a press conference has left many online questioning whether or not she was sober at the time.  In the video, Pelosi stutters, giggles, randomly says "hi" to someone, and puts her mask on upside down before walking away from the podium in an exhibition of strange behavior that has been making rounds on the internet.

Pelosi Slips When She Talks About Whose Agenda 'Build Back Better' Is.  [Scroll down]  Meanwhile, when Pelosi spoke to Congress today, she made a pretty big slip when she spoke about the Build Back Better bill.  She said that there was a requirement to pass the bill and "keep government open." "We have to do those imminently," Pelosi stuttered.  "More imminently to fully address the full Obama agenda of building back better."  [Video clip]  Now, was that too much adult libation for lunch that made her misspeak?  Or was she really saying something there?  It had a lot of people talking because there's often speculation on who the people are behind Biden.  It even trended on Twitter.  Barack Obama had previously joked himself that if he could get someone to front for him, he would.

Pelosi Cheers as Dems Pass Radical Abortion Without Limits Bill — Legalizes Partial Birth Abortion, Dismembering Babies, Lifts All Restrictions.  Democrats passed the most radical pro-abortion bill in history on Friday — as Americans remain stranded in Afghanistan and the US southern border remains wide open to unvaccinated illegal aliens.  The new law legalized partial-birth abortion, dismembering babies, decapitating babies, and targeting babies in the womb for any reason.  And Nancy Pelosi cheered.

Pelosi Brags to UK's Boris Johnson About Her Father — Forgets to Mention He Was Investigated for Connections to the Mob.  Speaker Nancy Pelosi reportedly shared with UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson that her father was in the US Capitol when Winston Churchill made his speech at the beginning of World War II.  Pelosi neglected to tell Johnson that her father was investigated for connections to the mob.  Yesterday [9/21/2021] UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson visited the Capitol and spoke with the most sinister Speaker in US history, Nancy Pelosi. [...] What Pelosi neglected to tell Johnson is that her father was also investigated for connections to the mob.

President Kennedy Asked the FBI to Look Into Speaker Pelosi's Father for Connections to the Mob.  President John F. Kennedy requested that Speaker Pelosi's father, Thomas D'Alesandro Jr. be investigated by the FBI for his connections to organized crime.  The related FBI documents were quietly released on January 6th.  On January 6th the FBI quietly released documents related to Nancy Pelosi's father.  Thomas D'Alesandro Jr was investigated by the FBI in 1961 per a request from President John F. Kennedy.  The document drop was released while Big Media and the Democrats were busy approving a stolen election and pushing the narrative that Trump supporters are violent. [...] The documents released on the 6th provide evidence that Pelosi's father was investigated by the FBI based on Kennedy's concerns.  The results of the investigation were provided to Kennedy and his brother Bobby, the Attorney General.

The Editor says...
I suspected in January that the government was doing something they didn't want anyone to notice, using the Capitol riot as a diversion.  Now we know what it was.  You might hear a pin drop in a quiet room, but you probably won't hear a pin drop if it happens right after a bowling ball drops.  This move by the FBI probably wasn't the only (other) thing going on that day.

It's Coming from Inside the House:  STOCK Act Violations Pile Up for House Dems.  Earlier this year, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and her husband Paul drew the ire of watchdog groups when they made $5.3 million dollars exercising options in tech companies that the Speaker regulates.  The trade time was curious; the payoff was grand.  The Pelosis got away with, what many consider to be, a blatant example of insider trading.  Using government knowledge for personal gain is prohibited under the STOCK Act.  It didn't stop Pelosi and it hasn't stopped her second in command, either.  Assistant Speaker of the House Katherine Clark, D-Mass., has failed to disclose $285,000 in transactions, "including investments in Google's parent company Alphabet Inc.; Best Buy; First Solar; investment firm BlackRock; pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline; data management company Iron Mountain; and water technology company Xylem Inc," Fox News reports.  The transactions were made on June 4th but not reported until August 15th — exceeding the 45-day reporting limit established by the STOCK Act.

Pelosi Met By Hecklers During Stop in England.  On Saturday [9/18/2021] during a her visit in the North of England, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was met by angry English protesters who told her to "go back to Epstein Island" and "Trump won!" [...] Pelosi is currently visiting the United Kingdom for the G7 Speakers meeting.  During one of her first speeches in the foreign country, Pelosi thought it would be a good time to trash Trump supporters while representing the United States overseas.  The speaker referred to the 80 million Trump supporters as a "cult" as she continued to divide America and turn the world against former President Donald Trump and his supporters.

Capitalism has worked very well for Nancy Pelosi and her husband.
Pelosi: Capitalism hasn't served U.S. as well as it should.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said capitalism isn't serving the U.S. as it should.  On Friday at the Chatham House in London, the Democrat explained how the U.S. economy hasn't benefited from capitalism.  She insisted the U.S. can't have a system that benefits some by depending on the exploitation of workers and the environment.  "In America, capitalism is our system, it is our economic system, but it has not served our economy as well as it should," said Pelosi.  "And so, what we want to do is not walk away from it, but improve it and make sure it serves us."

And now a few words in defense of capitalism:
The Deep Optimism Manifesto.  [Scroll down]  There is a general attack on capitalism these days, claiming that greedy capitalists are destroying the world to make a profit.  Degrowth is the new plastics.  Wokeness is winning.  Doom and gloom is coming unless we change radically.  I believe those arguments are based on faulty assumptions and faulty models of the future.  As we optimists see it, people don't understand how good things are and how much better they will be.  And we get called names for this!  People get upset when they learn that the world isn't about to end and children don't have to fear for their futures.

Nancy Pelosi Says Biden is 'Perfect' Because He 'Knows Foreign Policy!'  Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi heaped praise on Joe Biden in a recent interview where she declared the Commander-in-Chief "perfect" due to his extensive knowledge of "foreign policy."  "We're so fortunate that he did not win for President before when he ran, because we needed him now.  He's perfect for now.  He knows his foreign policy, he was Chair of the Foreign Policy Committee.  He extends a hand of friendship to friends and foe alike," said Pelosi.  [Video clip]

The Masking of the Servant Class:  Ugly COVID Images From the Met Gala Are Now Commonplace.  Last month, a delightful event was hosted by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for wealthy Democratic donors in Napa — the same wine region of choice for Gov. Newsom's notorious dinner party — at which the cheapest tickets were $100 each and a "chair" designation was available for $29,000.  Video of the outdoor festivities showed an overwhelmingly white crowd of rich Democratic donors sitting maskless virtually on top of one another — not an iota of social distancing to be found — as Pelosi imparted her deep wisdom about public policy.  Pelosi's donor gala took place as millions face eviction, ongoing joblessness, and ever-emerging mandates of various types.  It was also held just five days after the liberal county government of Los Angeles, in the name of Delta, imposed a countywide mask requirement for "major outdoor events."  In nearby San Francisco, where Pelosi's mansion is found, the liberal-run city government has maintained a more restrictive outdoor mask policy than the CDC: [...]

Pelosi in April: 'We Cannot Require Someone to Be Vaccinated, That's Just Not What We Can Do'.  Previous comments made by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi made the rounds on social media Friday after Joe Biden's recently announced federal vaccine mandate, with footage showing the top Democrat saying "we cannot require someone to be vaccinated."

Pelosi's Archbishop Threatens to Excommunicate Her, Other Prominent Dems From the Church Over Abortion.  Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is in danger of being excommunicated from the Catholic Church for her continuous support of the murder of unborn children.  Over the weekend, Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone, who just so happens to be the archbishop of Pelosi's home diocese in San Francisco, California, wrote an essay in the Washington Post, announcing that excommunication is a potential action to take against self-proclaimed Catholic Democrat leaders who support abortion.  In his piece, Cordileone urged Catholic politicians to oppose abortion, saying that "[y]ou cannot be a good Catholic and support expanding a government-approved right to kill innocent human beings."

The Editor says...
What took him so long?  The archbishop has held his office for almost nine years.  Nancy Pelosi has been a U.S. representative since 1987.

Pelosi's archbishop calls for ex-communication of pols now pushing for abortion.  Is the Catholic Church finally showing some leadership?  Sure looks like it, with this Washington Post op-ed by San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone: [...] The bishop in New Orleans wouldn't put up with a grave evil of racism in his parishes, and Cordileone is now showing the same backbone.  I think he had to, given that creatures such as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as well as Joe Biden have been so loud and extreme about their abortion advocacy.  They aren't just quietly enabling abortion and saying they're "personally opposed" anymore, as Democrats have attempted to weasel out with in the past, they're addicted to money and powerful lobbies, and thus, speak the party line of groups such as Planned Parenthood now.  It's time someone put a stop to that runaway train, and one archbishop has now stepped forward.  Too bad it's not all of them.  But this op-ed may just open the door.

Nancy Pelosi Under Fire For Adding $200M Earmark For Presidio Park In San Francisco.  House Republicans have been doing whatever possible to stop the Democrats from passing their latest massive spending proposal.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was called out for adding her own special projects to the $3.5 trillion reconciliation package.  "It wasn't 3.5 they voted for.  It was nearly $5 trillion they just voted for this week," explained House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.).  "There is no longer a centrist Democrat.  There is no longer a moderate Democrat.  Every single Democrat voted for this."  This process is known as earmarking and Pelosi was recently called out by some on the right for slipping a $200 million earmark into the package for the historic Presidio Park in San Francisco.

Pelosi: House Will Vote to Codify Roe v. Wade in Response to Texas Heartbeat Law.  Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) said Thursday [9/2/2021] that the House will vote to "enshrine into law reproductive health care for all women across America" following the Supreme Court's refusal to block a Texas law that prohibits abortion after a heartbeat can be detected.  Pelosi's comments come after the Supreme Court issued a 5-4 decision just before midnight on Wednesday evening [9/1/2021] rejecting a challenge to a Texas law that prohibits the abortion of an unborn baby once a heartbeat can be detected.  Chief Justice John Roberts joined the Court's three liberal justices in dissent.

GOP Rep. Releases Video Excoriating Biden, Pelosi:  I Have Constituents Trapped In Afghanistan, Blocked By Taliban.  Texas Rep. Ronny Jackson (R) published a video to Twitter on Monday [8/30/2021] excoriating the Biden administration and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).  Jackson said he has constituents "trapped in Afghanistan" who are receiving no help from the Biden State Department, despite numerous dangerous stops at the Kabul airport.  He also slammed Pelosi for her inaction in seeking answers to the disastrous withdrawal.

Pelosi and Co. Abandon Biden and Leave Town as Kabul Attacks Continue.  Despite Americans being stuck in Afghanistan and members of our military dying in attacks made on the Kabul airport, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other House Democrats have decided now was a good time to close up shop, leaving President Joe Biden with the Afghanistan mess.  According to Fox News, Pelosi and the Democrats stayed only so long as to work on domestic legislative agendas and then left.  With the Senate also out, Biden and his advisors are the only Democrats around to deal with the crisis.  House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy lambasted Pelosi and the Democrats over their seeming lack of concern as to what's happening to Americans overseas: [...]

Speaker Pelosi Jokes Around For 6 Minutes While Completely Ignoring the 12 US Servicemen Killed in Kabul Blasts.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday joked around for 6 minutes while completely ignoring the 12 US Servicemen killed in the Kabul blasts.  Pelosi on Thursday [8/26/2021] joined San Francisco Mayor London Breed, elected officials and community leaders to commemorate Women's Equality Day.  Meanwhile American blood is spilling in Afghanistan.  Pelosi joked around for 6 minutes after she walked up to the lectern.

Nancy Pelosi's grotesque behavior after the bomb in Kabul was for a reason.  One of the things that disgusted conservatives following news of the bloody terrorist attack in Kabul that killed twelve Marines and one Navy corpsman was the fact that Nancy Pelosi, during a public appearance in San Francisco, not only didn't mention, she was also in an exceptionally jovial, joking mood.  My bet is that this wasn't mere callousness on her part.  Instead, she was engaged in a form of gaslighting because she knows that many of her constituents pay little attention to the news and don't want to hear negative things about Democrats.  Here's Pelosi, a woman without a care in the world:  [Tweet]  I believe that the reason Pelosi is behaving in this way is to keep her base from realizing that something bad happened.  It's a form of gaslighting that involves her shaping their reality through lies, not to drive them crazy, but to keep them ignorant.  She's getting help from the media too.

The Real Reason Democratic 'Moderates' Are Revolting Over the Biden-Pelosi Agenda.  The moderates don't trust Pelosi to keep her word on passing the bipartisan $1 trillion infrastructure bill that passed the Senate two weeks ago at the same time as the House agrees to consider the budget bill.  It's a delicate dance that Pelosi is trying to choreograph, with the radicals not trusting her to deliver on the massive budget bill and the moderates not trusting her to keep her word on voting for the infrastructure deal.  Indeed, if the massive spending bill is passed by the House, many of the radicals wouldn't see the need for an infrastructure bill.  Conversely, the moderates don't want to be stuck voting for the hyperpartisan spending bill without the infrastructure bill.  It would be the kiss of death in swing districts, and it would be a major selling point for any of their Republican opponents.  Both groups feel they've been doublecrossed before.  Now, it's degenerated into a trillion-dollar game of chicken.

Afghanistan eats Joe and Nancy's pork.  On the night before Afghanistan collapsed, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and all the bigfoot Democrats were in the catbird seat.  Their $4.5-trillion stimulus package was in the bag with both houses of Congress, and all that was left was the vote.  Now things have changed. [...] The $1-trillion "infrastructure" bill, along with its Bernie Sanders-crafted $3.5-trillion "reconciliation" bill, are falling apart fast.  The Associated Press is making no bones about it.  Nancy Pelosi is begging her own moderates to play ball, and time is running out.  Nine Democrats are vowing to withhold votes, likely because they are hearing from voters, and Pelosi can afford to lose only three.

After swanky maskless party, GOP Rep dubs Speaker 'Gestapelosi' over 'unbelievable' House mask mandate.  A Republican House member is clapping back at Speaker Nancy Pelosi for her hypocritical requirement that all members wear masks though video surfaced of her attending a swanky event near her home in California over the weekend where she and nearly all guests were dining maskless and in close quarters.  "Pelosi has decreed — she's like the Gestapo, I call her a 'Gestapelosi,' m-m-k?  Gestapelosi has decreed that members must wear masks or get fined.  Then, staff members can be arrested and jailed.  She is the Gestapelosi.  It's unbelievable that she's doing this kind of stuff," Rep. Randy Weber (R-Texas), a member of the House Freedom Caucus, said during a presser Monday afternoon [8/23/2021].  During his Monday evening program, Fox News' primetime king Tucker Carlson also called out Pelosi over her insistence that members of the House be masked while in the chamber ostensibly due to the lingering COVID-19 pandemic, though she, in her personal life, seems less than concerned about the disease.

Overnight Nancy Pelosi Changes House Rules to Pass Green New Deal $3.5 Trillion Spending Package While Everyone Distracted by Afghanistan.  If you remember how Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi forced former Representative Bart Stupak and the 19 Blue Dog democrats to cave on the Obamacare construct in 2010, then you have a solid reference point for what Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi are doing right now.  As you are reading this Nancy Pelosi has pulled together her leadership group overnight to change the House rules for legislative passage of the $3.5 trillion Green New Deal spending package under the auspices of "infrastructure."  This $3.5 trillion spending bill is in addition to the $1.5 trillion infrastructure bill that came from the Senate, and... she is using the $2 trillion budget package as the carrier for a slick "Deem and Pass" maneuver.  As we have seen before, right now Pelosi is changing the House rules to have a single vote on the current budget proposal which will include a 'deem and pass' provision that adds the $3.5 trillion Green New Deal spending package to it.

Only people 'of color' wear masks:Nancy Pelosi hosts a tony Napa fundraiser.  House speaker Nancy Pelosi has hosted another tony fundraiser for Democrats.  It was in wine-country Napa Valley, of course, redolent of the Tuscan countryside. [...] The all-white fat cats, who paid $100 to $29,000 a pop, are all seated in close quarters in that same general region where Gavin Newsom held his unmasked French Laundry dinner, with, again, none of them wearing masks.  And the service staff?  They're black, they're Hispanic, they're maybe Filipino.  And to a person, they're all masked.  This is pretty crummy optics.  Black and brown people wear masks; white people who make six figures don't.  It highlights the race and class divide in all of these COVID shutdowns promoted by Democrats.  Message:  If you're poor, you're black, you're Mexican, you're Filipino, and you work for a low-wage catering company, you're going to wear a mask as a sign of your servility, your condition of employment at all.  If you don't, you're out with the homeless.

Video Emerges Showing Massive Party Thrown By Mask Nazi, Nancy Pelosi, No Attendees Wore Masks, Only The Serfs Serving Them.  Mask-pushing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was apparently caught addressing an outdoor crowd of mask-less Democratic big wigs in COVID-19-riddled Napa Valley over the weekend, according to video and tweets.  A clip of the close-quartered fundraiser was posted on Facebook by Democratic Party donor and winemaker Kathryn Walt Hall — and promptly blasted out on Twitter.  [Video clip]

Video shows hordes of maskless people at Pelosi fundraiser.  Mask-pushing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was apparently caught addressing an outdoor crowd of mask-less Democratic big wigs in COVID-19-riddled Napa Valley over the weekend, according to video and tweets.  A clip of the close-quartered fund-raiser was posted on Facebook by Democratic Party donor and winemaker Kathryn Walt Hall — and promptly blasted out on Twitter.  The footage appeared to show dozens of unmasked people seated elbow to elbow at long luncheon tables as Pelosi gave a speech and masked waiters ambled between the listeners.  "All the servants fully masked," tweeted journalist Glenn Greenwald.  "The almost-entirely old, white, rich crowd of DCCC donors free to go maskless as they're served."

Nancy Pelosi Hosts "Super Spreader" Event In Napa For Maskless Old White Liberals.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) was seen without her mask over the weekend at a Democrat Party fundraiser event full of unmasked attendees.  The event was hosted by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) in Napa, California, where Pelosi was seen delivering remarks unmasked.  The event was exclusively for old white liberals at a super spreader event while their ethnic, masked staff wait on them hand and foot. [...] Notably, the only people seen wearing masks were the service staff, highlighting the fact that Democrat elites see masks as reserved only for the peasant class.  The event also reportedly included pro-mask former Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo, who apologized last year after getting caught without a mask amid the statewide mask mandate she imposed.

With Infamous "Wine Cave" Donor Help, Pelosi Greases the Palms of 9 Democrats and the West Coast Elites.  Kathryn Walt Hall is one of those blue-blooded, monied elites who own politicians through their largesse.  Walt Hall and her husband Craig Hall were the infamous "wine cave" purveyors behind the 2020 Primary election brouhaha with then-Presidential candidates Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Liawatha). The couple hosted Mayor Pete for a $1,000 a glass fundraiser for his campaign, and Sen. Fauxcahontas called him on it. [...] This couple, through their shell corporation the Hall Financial Group, Inc., has given billions of dollars to Democrats since the 1980s, to make sure they have a controlling interest in who will be the next President, Governor, Senators, and Congressmen.  This last cycle, to the tune of $50,000, they contributed to Dementia Joe's Biden Victory Fund.  The couple has also hosted our Governor Hair Gel for a few events, and other Democrat candidates and office holders who they considered malleable and influential (remember Tom Daschle?)

Nancy Pelosi snubs bipartisanship.  Pelosi has made an ultimatum:  The country will either get a bipartisan infrastructure bill and a much larger Democratic megaspending bill or neither.  Her majority will be the collateral.  The problem with our politics is that the fringes have become far more emboldened, and more powerful, than the broad middle (center, center-right, center-left) that does still exist in U.S. politics.  The enemy of this broad middle, and all who yearn for pragmatism and compromise in politics, has a name:  Nancy Pelosi.

Report: Pelosi May "Sacrifice" Vulnerable Democrats to Advance the Liberal Swamp Agenda.  According to a new report, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi may "sacrifice" vulnerable Democrats in the House by cutting their campaigning short so that she could advance far-left Democrat agendas.  Politicians in the month of August are rewarded with a "recess" which is usually used as campaigning time however Speaker Pelosi seems to have a different plan this time around.  With Democrats holding a slim majority in the House and their hopes of keeping that majority fading, Pelosi reportedly wants to cut the House's recess short so that they can push through far-left agendas.

Salon Owner Who Outed Maskless Pelosi Headlines 'Save Our Paychecks' Event.  It's been nearly a year since San Francisco salon owner Erica Kious lost her business after exposing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's violation of California's COVID-19 lockdown rules to get her hair done.  "I thought if I ever lost my business, I would lose it in an earthquake," Kious said Tuesday [8/10/2021], speaking at a salon in Fresno, California, for the first "Save Our Paychecks" event sponsored by Heritage Action for America.  "Never did I think I would lose everything I worked for by leftist politics.  Gone."  Kious was traveling when she saw the video footage of Pelosi, who visited the now-defunct eSalon on Aug. 31.  "I went through the exact footage of her walking through my reception area with no mask," Kious said.  "I literally felt like she took a knife and stabbed me in the stomach. ... I know inside me what she did was wrong, completely wrong."  After her maskless visit to the salon made news headlines, Pelosi said:  "It was clearly a setup."  Kious flatly denied the accusation.

Obama runs into Nancy Pelosi after she was DISINVITED from his 'scaled down' 60th birthday.  On the island but off the list.  Nancy Pelosi is in Martha's Vineyard but off Barack Obama's 'trimmed' down birthday party list.  And it's awkward. can exclusively reveal the House Speaker had been cut from the list but travelled to the island regardless to attend a dinner in her honor, to be held on Sunday [8/8/2021].  According to one well informed source Saturday afternoon brought a tense meeting as Pelosi dined with Oprah Winfrey at the elite Vineyard Havens Country Club.

Pelosi Says She Is 'Very Confident' Democrats Will Win House In 2022.  Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said Friday she is "very confident" Democrats will maintain control of the House in 2022.  "I'm very confident that we will win the House," Pelosi said during her weekly conference on Capitol Hill.  House Republicans would need to pick up around five seats to reclaim the majority.  Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) chairman Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney reportedly told Democrats that the party needs to course-correct before 2022 by doing more to promote President Joe Biden's agenda, sharing polling data with Democrats that showed Republicans with an edge, according to Politico.

Pelosi Met With Police Officers Who Gave Shockingly Partisan Testimony About January 6.  Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi met with Capitol and Metro Police officers who testified before the congressional "January 6 Commission," where the officers delivered shockingly partisan and widely-doubted accounts of the protest events.  Pelosi personally invited Harry Dunn, a Capitol police officer, and Metro police officers Daniel Hodges and Michael Fanone to the House gallery for a vote back in June, making it clear that Pelosi had those three officers handpicked.  Here is a photo of Pelosi meeting with Dunn, Fanone, and Hodges, alongside fellow leftist Democrat Rep. Eric Swalwell.

Nancy [is] Pelosi Repeatedly Seen Maskless After Ordering Masks Again in the Capitol.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has been caught without a mask numerous times in the U.S. Capitol after the return of a mask mandate and threatening anyone who opposes — even those who are vaccinated — with being arrested.  On the first day of the new mask mandate, where the members, staff, and visitors were being required to wear a "well-fitted" super mask, Pelosi (seen in the video above) was in the House chamber, speaking at the speaker's podium without a mask, and wiping her nose with a what looks like a Kleenex while also touching the area around her, as she is giving orders for others to wear the mask.

CRUZ: 'Nancy Pelosi Has No Authority' to 'Fine or Put People in Jail' for Not Wearing a Mask.  Senator Ted Cruz called-out Speaker Nancy Pelosi from the US Capitol Friday; saying the top Democrat "has no authority" to impose mask mandates on members of Congress, their visitors, or staff.  "Nancy Pelosi has no authority to disrespect the men and women of Congress by threatening to fine them or put them in jail for not wearing a mask," posted Cruz on Twitter.

Representatives Go on Offensive Against Pelosi's Mask Rule, Cite 27th Amendment.  Will It Work?  Three House Republicans filed a lawsuit Tuesday [7/27/2021] against Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., after she enforced a mask mandate against them.  The three — Reps.  Thomas Massie, R-Ky.; Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga.; and Ralph Norman, R-S.C. — had fines deducted from their salaries after refusing to wear masks on the House floor.  Among their claims is an unusual one: that the mask rule violates the 27th Amendment to the Constitution.  That amendment (sent to the states with the original Bill of Rights in 1789, but was not ratified until 1992) reads:  "No law, varying the compensation for services of the Senators and Representatives, shall take effect, until an election of representatives shall have intervened."  The plaintiffs argue that the mask rule violates the amendment because deducting a fine from their salaries varies their compensation downward.  Is their claim a winner?  Almost certainly not.

Republican Staffers Defy Pelosi:  Maskless 'Beer' Pong, Cigars in Capitol Hallway.  Republican staffers defied Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Thursday evening by playing beer pong (with water) in a Capitol office hallway, smoking cigars, and socializing — without masks, courting arrest by Capitol Police.  As Breitbart News reported Thursday [7/29/2021], Pelosi ordered Capitol Police to arrest any staff and visitors who refused to comply with new mask mandates, which she imposed earlier in the week, regardless of vaccination status.  She ordered the Capitol Police to report members of Congress who refused to comply to the House Sergeant at Arms for disciplinary action.  In response, several GOP members of Congress defied Pelosi's orders by allowing staff to work without masks, or remotely.

Nancy Pelosi Orders the Arrest of Those Without Masks and the Capitol Police Play Along.  Throughout the "back the blue" craze of the Trump era, one thing became abundantly clear that largely quelled it — police follow orders.  That includes orders that are patently absurd and violate the basic freedoms of individuals.  Yes, law enforcement officers generally do good work and are to be respected for that, but if you are expecting them to stand up to their authorities to protect the rights of individuals, they are almost always going to disappoint you.  Take that revelation and do with it what you will. [...] Another example of that has emerged within the Capitol of the United States.  Nancy Pelosi has ordered the Capitol Police to arrest people who aren't wearing masks.  [Tweet]  If the USCP weren't such a ridiculously politicized department, they'd scoff at the notion of using manpower to arrest people for not wearing masks, especially when the edict is coming from a purely political place.  There is no science behind the idea of further mask-mandates anywhere.  That's especially true regarding the Capitol Building, where almost every person in attendance is vaccinated and has lasting protection from the effects of COVID.  Pelosi put this mask-mandate back into place for one reason — to poke at Republicans.  No data exists to actually supports the mandating of masks, much less in the Capitol.

Pelosi's Jan. 6th Committee Is A Charade That Smacks Of A Cover-Up.  Mark Twain once mused that if you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.  There will be no pause or reflection by the House select committee investigating the January 6th attack on the Capitol.  That became abundantly plain as the hearings opened on Tuesday.  Nancy Pelosi won't allow it.  Her narrative of what happened that terrible day will be the only one permitted — all other facts [notwithstanding].  Pelosi's Democrat party is the majority in the House of Representatives, albeit narrowly.  As Speaker, she rules like a tyrant.  She abides no dissent, tolerates no differing opinion, and is contemptuous of the truth.  Only her truth is indulged.  Any contrary evidence will be suppressed or covered up.  Pelosi has no interest in the full story of what actually happened on January 6th.  She blames the great villain Donald Trump for everything and will countenance no other inquiry or outcome.  You must believe her or else.

'Expect endless retaliation': House riot committee provokes partisan war.  When Congress reconvened following the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol, Democratic Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Republican House Administration Committee ranking member Rodney Davis met in the chamber and agreed that Congress should call for a bipartisan investigation into the unprecedented events of that day.  More than six months later, House lawmakers will launch a riot investigation that has provoked a partisan battle that now threatens any future cooperation between the two parties.  "This is a sham committee that's just politically driven by Speaker Pelosi," Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, a California Republican, said Thursday [7/22/2021].  Pelosi last week took the unprecedented step of blocking two of McCarthy's appointees to a 13-member select committee that appears to focus on the role of then-President Donald Trump and other Republicans leading up to and during the attack on the Capitol.

Democrats Realize There Are Consequences to Their Actions.  Meanwhile, the House is a horror show of radical left policies, from federal takeovers of state elections to bills that essentially ban independent contractors.  Making the entirety of the United States into California seems to be Rep. Nancy Pelosi's goal.  That California is currently a disaster doesn't seem to play into her calculation.  But it's not just policy that Democrats are pushing the envelope on.  When it comes to the inner workings of the House, Pelosi has thrown all caution to the wind, with the latest example being her select committee to investigate January 6th.  In a deeply partisan move, she's taken the ability away from Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy to seat the Republicans he wants on the committee, a historical courtesy that was given to Pelosi when she was in the minority.

Nancy Pelosi's on her last legs.  Nancy Pelosi used to point her angry finger at Donald Trump, but she leaves him in the dust when it comes to busting norms, dividing Congress and causing mayhem.  If anyone is to blame for the hyper-partisanship in Washington these days, it's the spiteful House speaker.  She behaves more like a Mafia don waging a gang war than a dignified, fair and honest presiding officer, which is what the speaker's role requires.  Pelosi abuses her power in ways that once were unthinkable.  Her speakership has been the antithesis of Lincoln's entreaty to "the better angels of our nature." Everyone in Congress — and, by extension, the nation — has been sullied by the spite and vitriol she has injected into the political sphere.  There is no grace or Christian charity, just the barren wasteland of the zero-sum game, power for power's sake.  It's made all the worse by her increasingly frantic claims to be a "devout Catholic."  The fact that all this venom is packaged in the shape of a small, elderly, expensively shod woman has bestowed upon her an element of deference her actions do not deserve.  But last week there were a couple of signs that she's finally worn out her welcome.

Republicans Take Major Action Against "Authoritarian" Pelosi, Push to "Vacate" Her Chair.  On Friday [7/23/2021], the House Freedom Caucus sent a bombshell letter to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), urging him to remove Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi from her position as Speaker after her "authoritarian" behavior in recent weeks.  The letter came in response to drama that took place this week relating to the formation of the January 6 riot Select Committee.  In their letter, the caucus told McCarthy they "respectfully request that you pursue the authorization of the House Republican Conference, pursuant to Conference rules, to file and bring up a privileged motion by July 31, 2021, to vacate the chair and end Nancy Pelosi's authoritarian reign as Speaker of the House."

'Devout Catholic' Pelosi Calls Taxpayer Funded Abortion an 'Issue of Fairness and Justice for Poor Women'.  When I went through RCIA the teacher said life is important.  We cannot compromise on life.  Protecting life starting at the room has been in our Catechism since the beginning.  The left wants to eliminate the Hyde Amendment since it bars the federal government from using taxpayer money to fund abortions except to save the life of the mother.  A reporter asked "devout Catholic" Nancy Pelosi about their crusade to fund infanticide with our money.  She tried to deflect, but the reporter eventually forced out an answer from her.  At first, Pelosi said:  "We think it's the right thing to do.  It is something that many of us have been concerned for a long time as an issue of health, as an issue of health, an issue of fairness, and we will send the bills over to the senate."  The reporter clarifies his question:  "No, it is a bill to prohibit taxpayer-funded abortions.  To have money go to taxpayer-funded abortions."

The Editor says...
To recap:  "Devout Catholic" Pelosi says having the taxpayers pay for fetal homicide is "an issue of fairness," and "the right thing to do."

Archbishop to Pelosi:  Devout Catholics Do Not Support Abortion.  An archbishop on Thursday [7/22/2021] responded to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's claim that she is a devout Catholic who supports abortion.  "Let me repeat: no one can claim to be a devout Catholic and condone the killing of innocent human life, let alone have the government pay for it.  The right to life is a fundamental — the most fundamental — human right, and Catholics do not oppose fundamental human rights," San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone said in a statement.  Cordileone is the archbishop of Pelosi's home diocese.  Pelosi was asked during a press conference earlier in the day why Democrats have declined to allow a vote on a bill that would block taxpayer-funded abortions.  She said access to abortion is a health issue for many American women, "especially those in lower-income situations and in different states, and it is something that has been a priority for many of us a long time."

Pelosi Proves What a Sham Her Jan. 6 Commission Truly Is With Her Latest Move.  If you didn't already know that a "Jan. 6 Commission" controlled by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was going to be a partisan witch hunt, Pelosi just confirmed it with her latest move.  Pelosi had appointed Democratic choices to the Commission including Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), so you already know how biased it was going to be, stacked with anti-Trump people.  It was already stacked, with Democrats having eight choices for members and Republicans only getting five.  But when Republicans announced their choices for the Commission, Pelosi vetoed two of them:  Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH). In a statement, Pelosi reiterated the lie that the three-hour riot on Jan. 6 was the worst domestic assault on American Democracy since the Civil War.

Tucker: Pelosi knows why Jan 6 riot happened, why won't she tell us?  Instead of launching a committee for the purposes of political theater, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) herself could shed a lot of light on what happened at the Capitol on January 6.  Instead, the investigation will resemble "MSNBC with subpoena power."  That is how Tucker Carlson assessed the situation in another powerful editorial delivered on Wednesday evening [7/21/2021] on his eponymous Fox News show.  Pelosi could save the committee, if not the entire Congress and America itself, a lot of time by answering a few basic questions, Carlson said.  These include the following:
  •   Why did the House sergeant-at-arms, a Pelosi subordinate, allegedly deny the Capitol police chief's repeated requests for National Guard backup when everyone knew a huge protest was coming?
  •   Why are authorities sitting on many hours of surveillance video?
  •   Who killed U.S. Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt?
  •   What role, if any, did FBI informants or operatives play on January 6?

Nancy and Paul Pelosi Making Millions in Stock Trades in Companies She Actively Regulates.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is the sixth-richest member of Congress, according to the most recent financial disclosure statements filed in 2019. As the California Democrat has risen through party ranks and obtained more and more political power, her personal wealth has risen right along with it.  Pelosi "has seen her wealth increase to nearly $115 million from $41 million in 2004," reports the transparency non-profit group Open Secrets.  Even by the standards of wealth that define that legislative body — "more than half of those in Congress are millionaires" — the wealth and lifestyle of the long-time liberal politician and most powerful lawmaker in Washington are lavish.  And ever since ascending to the top spot in the House, Pelosi and her husband, Paul, keep getting richer and richer.  Much of their added wealth is due to extremely lucrative and "lucky" decisions about when to buy and sell stocks and options in the very industries and companies over which Pelosi, as House Speaker, exercises enormous and direct influence.

Pelosi's husband bought up to $11 million of Big Tech stocks as House moved on reform legislation.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband, Paul Pelosi, bought up to $11 million worth of Big Tech stocks in the last two months as an anti-tech package of bills makes its way through the House at the same time.  In May and June, Pelosi purchased $4.8 million worth of Google shares, up to $1 million worth of Amazon call options, up to $250,000 of Apple call options, and up to $5 million of call options for Nvidia, the large semiconductor, graphics, and electronics company, according to a financial disclosure form filed last week.  A call option is a financial contract that allows a buyer the right to purchase a stock or asset at a set price within a specific time period.

Pelosi's husband bought millions of Big Tech stocks as House bills moved; she claims she didn't know.  Left leaning media outlets have shamelessly blown up the news surrounding Trump Organization indictments this week, but they have collectively and conveniently remained hushed on news that Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi's husband invested $11 million in stocks closely mirroring House priorities.  A July 2nd disclosure revealed that Paul Pelosi purchased $4.8 million in Google shares, up to $1 million in Amazon call options, $250,000 in Apple call options, and up to $5 million in call options for semiconductor and electronics company Nvidia.  The call option allowed Paul to purchase the stock at a set price within a set time period.

The Editor says...
I can't buy a loaf of bread without Mrs. Editor finding out about it.  No reasonable person could believe that Nancy Pelosi was unaware that her husband bought $11 million worth of stock.

Huge, Troubling Expansion of the Capitol Police Coming, Across the Country.  The Capitol is still locked down, still closed to Americans.  One has to ask why.  The Democrats are going to try to use the 'investigation' of the three-hour Capitol riot by a select committee to continue an effort to connect Republicans to the event and bash them going into 2022.  All that is troubling.  But now there's something that perhaps is even more troubling because of the clear potential for abuse.  [Tweet]  According to the New York Times, the U.S. Capitol Police have announced they are now planning to expand operations outside Washington "beginning with the opening of field offices in California and Florida" but the plan is to open "several additional regional offices."  Their spokesman says they need to monitor and quickly investigate threats against lawmakers.

Nancy Pelosi Directs Capitol Hill Security Police Units to Regional Offices in California and Florida, Future Locations Coming.  In a remarkable display of how committed the Democrat party is to utilizing the narrative of domestic extremism for their own benefit, Nancy Pelosi is placing satellite field offices for the DC Capitol Police in key regions around the country.  When we consider the FBI has field offices all over the country, you might ask:  why does the Capitol Hill police need to expand beyond Washington DC?  Essentially, what Nancy Pelosi is doing is expanding the federal law enforcement mechanism of the legislative branch into specific areas where they can investigate political opposition armed with legal authority.  This is a concerning shift in events; however, there is a likelihood such a move is connected to the larger political goal of enhanced federal enforcement to quell any rebellion, while working in concert with the DOJ.

20 Questions for Nancy Pelosi About January 6.  No one has milked the events of January 6 more than House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).  She set the official narrative early and often, a storyline her scribes in the news media have dutifully repeated without question or scrutiny.  "[Y]esterday, the president of the United States incited an armed insurrection against America, the gleeful desecration of the U.S. Capitol, which is the temple of our American democracy," Pelosi lamented in a hyperdramatic press conference the day after the raucous protest.  She accused President Trump of "sedition" and urged his cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove him just two weeks before he officially left the White House.  Nearly every word in her opening statement that day is untrue.  The president didn't "incite" the violence; it was not an insurrection, armed or otherwise, and the only person who used a firearm was a still-unidentified Capitol police officer who killed an unarmed female veteran.

Pelosi cancels the Fourth of July.  During an average year, the U.S. Capitol welcomes 2.5 million visitors, but House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has refused to reopen the Capitol to visitors — school groups, families, or anyone hoping to see the legislative branch in action.  To make matters worse, Pelosi's refusal even to allow visitors on the Capitol grounds resulted in the outdoor concert regularly held on the Capitol's west front to celebrate our nation's independence being canceled.  What could have been a unifying celebration of our Independence Day and defeat of COVID-19 will instead be virtual performances streamed online.  Washington, D.C., has fully reopened.  Americans traveling to Washington, D.C., this summer can attend sporting events, go to concerts, take their families to the National Zoo, see monuments, and visit most Smithsonian museums on the National Mall.  The U.S. Capitol should be open for tours.  Unfortunately, keeping the Capitol closed is just part of the speaker's larger effort to exert more control over the House.

Nancy Pelosi and Democrats Block Bill to Ban Tax-Funded Abortions for 20th Time.  Over the last week, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats have blocked a bill to ban taxpayer-funding of abortions 20 times.  Each day over the last week, multiple pro-life Republican House members have asked the House for unanimous consent to bring the pro-life bill to the floor for a vote.  Each time, Democrats have refused.  On Monday [6/28/2021], Rep. Stephanie Bice (R-OK), Rep. Buddy Carter (R-GA), Rep. Glenn Thompson (R-PA), and Rep. Bill Huizenga (R-MI) asked for unanimous consent to get a floor vote on H.R. 18, The No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act.  As they had 16 times previously, Democrats refused a vote to protect taxpayers from being forced to fund killing babies in abortions.  The bill would make the Hyde Amendment permanent law and protect taxpayers from being forced to fund the killing of unborn babies in abortions.  The Hyde Amendment, which has strong public support, prohibits taxpayer funding for elective abortions in Medicaid and other federal programs.

Nancy Pelosi Unveils Democrats' January 6th Committee to Investigate Capitol Riot.  Nancy Pelosi formally unveiled her January 6th House Committee Monday to investigate the January 6th incursion that occurred at the US Capitol; saying the probe is necessary to prevent "any future assault."  [Transcript]

What?  No mention of global warming?
Pelosi: 'Root Causes' of Capitol 'Insurrection' Were 'White Supremacy, Anti-Semitism, Islamophobia'.  Nancy Pelosi spoke today [6/245/2021] about "the root causes" of the January 6 Capitol riot:  "the white supremacy, the anti-Semitism, the Islamophobia, all the rest of it that was so evident when you see a sweatshirt on one of the people saying, 'Camp Auschwitz.'"  She repeated the common and yet completely unsubstantiated claim that the Capitol incident constituted an "insurrection," and once again claimed that Trump "incited" the "insurrection," in flagrant disregard for the fact that Trump told the demonstrators to remain peaceful.  Her list of the three "root causes" of this sham "insurrection" were, in effect, a list of those that she and the Biden Justice Department intend to go after, and the charges they will hang over their heads in the Stalinist show trials that could be in the offing.

As Expected Political Pelosi Announces January 6th Select Committee to Support Mid-Term Election Roadmap.  The January 6th House Select Committee investigation is to MAGA voters what the Mueller Investigation was to President Trump.  A tool to attack political opposition and frame a narrative for the 2022 mid-term election.  Nothing more.  [Video clip]

Nancy Pelosi and Democrats Deny a Vote Six Times on Bill to Ban Tax-Funded Abortions.  Six times in one day, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democrats rejected calls for a vote on a bill that would permanently ban taxpayer-funded abortions in Medicaid and other federal programs.  On Thursday [6/24/2021], Republicans asked for a unanimous consent request on the House floor to demand a vote on the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act (House Resolution 18), sponsored by U.S. Rep. Chris Smith, R-New Jersey.  However, Democrats who control the House rejected their requests.  The bill would make the Hyde Amendment permanent law and protect taxpayers from being forced to fund the killing of unborn babies in abortions.  The Hyde Amendment, which has strong public support, prohibits taxpayer funding for elective abortions in Medicaid and other federal programs.  Since 1976, it has saved an estimated 2.4 million babies' lives, including about 60,000 each year, according to the Charlotte Lozier Institute.

Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi Wear Masks to Funeral Service Despite Being Fully Vaccinated.  President Joe Biden and a number of Democrats were spotted wearing masks at a funeral service for former Sen. John Warner (R-VA) on Wednesday [6/23/2021], even though they are fully vaccinated.  The president, First Lady Jill Biden, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) were spotted wearing masks at the service, as well as Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT).  Some advocates of the vaccines criticize vaccinated people who keep wearing masks, arguing it raises doubts about their effectiveness.  The Centers for Disease Controls have advised that fully vaccinated people can resume activities as normal both inside and outside, except for separate regulations for those using public transportation and airplanes.

The Editor says...
Do vaccines work, or do they not?  Are they still wearing masks because they got injected with sterile water instead of an experimental vaccine?  That would be the simplest explanation.  The second-simplest explanation would be that the mask is a political symbol — like a Nazi armband — rather than a medical device.

Pelosi reportedly hasn't dropped a dime after promising to personally match campaign donations.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has allegedly not spent a single dime matching campaign donations even though she promised personally to do so in at least 50 emails to her supporters.  The emails were sent by Pelosi for Congress, the House Speaker's campaign committee, between January and April according to Axios who conducted an analysis of a political email archive maintained by researchers at Princeton University.  FEC records indicate that Pelosi has not given any of her personal wealth to her campaign.  The slight goes beyond breaking a promise made repeatedly.  It may create a legal mess for the Speaker of the House if a recent Department of Justice decision is heeded.

Report: Pelosi Deceives Donors, Does Not Match Donations.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-CA) campaign committee has repeatedly deceived donors by personally promising she would match campaign contributions but has not matched a single cent, according to a report.  Pelosi has been using a popular deceptive tactic used in political fundraising to gather more donations.  According to the report by Axios, the tactic that has been under intense scrutiny is to promise donation-matching.  Pelosi's campaign has reportedly gone a step further by the speaker promising the contribution matching would come from her personal fortune.  But, reports show Pelosi has not made a single contribution from herself.

No Nancy Pelosi, Christianity and Abortion Are Not Compatible.  Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi has long been the target of faithful Catholics who have questioned her ability to take communion or even be called a Catholic.  Regarding the issue of communion, Pelosi recently said, "I think I can use my own judgement on that."  Her Archbishop, Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco responded with something that should be in the heart and mind and on the tongue of every professing Christian.  He said that abortion isn't a matter where we can use our own judgement.  Noting the body count of tens of millions of dead unborn babies, he stated that the support and promotion of abortion is "cooperating with evil."  The Archbishop made another astute observation.  All we have to do is look around to understand that society is in a deep crisis.  The looting, burning, and killing have dramatically increased.  Archbishop Cordileone reminded us that "violence begets violence."  And the violence he was talking about is abortion, which has had a corrosive effect on the fabric of our nation.  Its impact on babies, mothers, fathers, and society as a whole cannot be overestimated.

Pelosi Goes Mask-Free at White House Event Hours After Imposing Strict Rules for Congress.  Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi confused millions of Americans this week; attending a crowded White House event without her face-mask just hours after accusing mask-less Republicans of turning Congress into a COVID "Petri Dish."  "A maskless House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., mingled indoors at a White House event Thursday while still enforcing coronavirus mask mandates on the House floor that amount to $500 fines," reports Fox News.

Marjorie Taylor Greene Tees off on 'Mentally Ill' Nancy Pelosi Over Mask Silliness.  As if we didn't already know that dictatorial House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and renegade Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) aren't exactly BFFs — they're not even occasional lunch buddies — Greene took Pelosi out behind the woodshed on Thursday [5/20/2021] over the Speaker's continuing insistence that members wear masks in the House Chamber.  In direct contradiction of the latest "scientific advice" — Democrats love "science" when it supports their various narratives and ignore it when it does not — from the CDC, mind you, the COVID font of knowledge most revered by the Democrat Party.

Pelosi on Catholic bishop's comments about receiving Communion: 'I can use my own judgment on that'.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi dismissed Catholic bishops who do not believe she should receive Communion due to her views on abortion.  "I think I can use my own judgment on that but I'm pleased with what the Vatican put out on that subject.  Did you read that?" Pelosi, D-Calif., told a reporter at her weekly press conference.  "It basically says don't be divisive on the subject.  Thank you," Pelosi said before exiting the conference.  The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops will convene for a national meeting next month, with plans to vote on drafting guidelines for Communion.  Some bishops have been pressing for President Biden and other public figures who support abortion to be excluded from the sacrament.  The head of the Vatican's doctrine office issued a warning to the conference to deliberate carefully to avoid sowing division.

When Fools Rule.  Arguably, the third most powerful person in America is Nancy Pelosi.  Under the section titled "Private Sector" on her Wikipedia page is nothing but a string of emoticons to indicate hilarious laughter.  Pelosi has never had a real job.  In fact, she comes from a family of taxeaters.  Her father was a lifelong politician.  Her brother was also a lifelong taxeater, largely credited with ruining Baltimore while mayor.

Pelosi shares photo of wrong black player in botched attempt to honor Willie Mays.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tried to honor baseball legend Willie Mays for his 90th birthday Thursday, but those plans were initially fouled up after the 81-year-old pol tweeted out a smiling photo of herself — and Willie McCovey.  McCovey, another black Hall of Famer from the San Francisco Giants, also played around the same era as the Say Hey Kid.  Pelosi apparently has smiling images of herself with both men and the mistaken photo was swiftly swapped out for a one of her with Mays.

Can We Put Pelosi out to Pasture Already for What She Just Did to Willie Mays?  In general, I don't believe in age limits for political positions, because it restricts people who can be competent well into old age.  But she's 81 at this point and suffers from the same thing that Joe Biden does:  functional incoherence.  That's on top of their already horrific policy positions.

Pelosi: 'I Will Never Forgive' Trump, Capitol Rioters for Trauma They Caused.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said Wednesday [4/28/2021] on MSNBC's "Andrea Mitchell Reports" that she would "never forgive" former President Donald Trump and the rioters at the U.S. Capitol on January 6.

GOP reps calling on Pelosi to pay metal detector fine: 'All members must live under the same rules'.  Republicans on the House Administration Committee are calling on Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to pay the fine for not going through metal detectors to get onto the House floor after her office confirmed that she hadn't used them to access the floor in February.  Reps.  Rodney Davis, R-Ill., Barry Loudermilk, R-Ga., and Bryan Steil, R-Wis., sent a letter to acting House Sergeant-at-Arms Timothy Blodgett requesting he levy fines against the speaker for not following the security protocols all members are required to follow to get to the House floor.  The lawmakers pointed out that metal detectors, or "magnetometers," were placed at "three entry points" to the House chambers while others were changed to be exit only.  They said C-SPAN footage and the speaker's office confirmed Pelosi had used a "closed entrance" to enter the House chambers from the Speaker's Lobby.

Here is my nominee for Non-sequitur of the Year:
Pelosi Says, "DC Statehood Runs in My DNA" as She Holds Up a Photo of Her Father Meeting with Eleanor Roosevelt.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Thursday said attacking the US Constitution and pushing for DC statehood is in her DNA.  The Framers of the Constitution never intended for DC to be a state, but the Democrats are going for the power grab anyway.  The Democrat-Communist party knows they don't have the support to amend the Constitution so they are pushing for DC statehood through a vote in Congress.  The Democrats stole the White House and the Senate in 2020 with massive voter fraud so now they are fiercely working to pack the Supreme Court and pack the Senate.  "I said this District of Columbia statehood is in my DNA," Pelosi said holding up a photo of her late father meeting with First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt.

TV Networks Skip White Lady Pelosi Thanking Black Man Floyd for Dying.  In a bizarre Tuesday [4/20/2021] press conference following the guilty verdict of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin in the murder of George Floyd, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) thanked Floyd for "sacrificing" his life (as though it was his choice) and crying out for mother.  It was a disgusting display that went completely unmentioned by the evening newscasts of ABC, CBS, and NBC, though ABC's World News Tonight was busy falsely claiming Republicans were against police reform.  Fortunately, Fox News Prime Time rotational host and Federalist co-founder Ben Domenech wasn't going to let Pelosi's gross exploitation of Floyd's death slide.  "[I]t seems to me that the way the totalitarian left approaches these issues, they are designed — their whole approach is designed to permit racial outrage, to create division, and then exploit it for political purposes," he said to Fox News contributor Tammy Bruce [...].

Joe Biden Reacts to Chauvin Verdict and Describes a World That Doesn't Exist — Except Where Democrats Rule.  [Scroll down]  The most insane reaction to the [Derek Chauvin / George Floyd] verdict belongs to Nancy Pelosi, who literally thanked George Floyd for getting murdered.  As if he intended to get killed that day.  As if his murder has led to some sort of good outcome.  More than two dozen Americans, mostly minorities, were killed in the riots that followed his death.  Rioters did billions of dollars of damage to cities all over the country.  Our national fabric has been torn asunder, and Pelosi has done precisely nothing to bring it back together.  She divides at every single opportunity.  It's long past time for the divisive, always enraged Pelosi to depart the political scene.

Nancy Pelosi Celebrates Chauvin Guilty Verdict by Thanking George Floyd for Dying.  Lebron James "was crying," Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison was ebullient, and Senator Tim Scott got some facts wrong, but nobody had a stranger reaction to the guilty verdicts in the Derek Chauvin trial than Nancy Pelosi.  The Speaker of the House quickly arranged a presser outside on Capitol Hill after the guilty verdicts were read on Tuesday afternoon [4/20/2021].  Members of Congress were arrayed behind Pelosi as the House Speaker looked prayerfully up to the sky and, in a voice muffled by her mask, said in her treacly way:  ["]Thank you, George Floyd, for sacrificing your life for justice.  Your name will become synonymous with justice.["]

"Thank you George Floyd for Sacrificing Your Life for Justice!" — Nancy Pelosi Spouts Off Outrageous Nonsense after Derek Chauvin Verdict.  The Democrats from the House of Representatives led by Nancy Pelosi held a presser outside the US Capitol after the Derek Chauvin verdict was announced.  Speaker Pelosi and other Representatives held a presser at the Capital [sic].  [Video clip]

Nancy Pelosi Lobbies Biden to Accept More Refugees: 'Moral Responsibility'.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) urged President Joe Biden on Thursday to accept more refugees into the United States, claiming that America has a "moral responsibility" to do so.  Pelosi told reporters during a press conference at the Capitol, "We have a moral responsibility in the world — as every other country does, too — to receive refugees who have a well-founded fear of persecution or harm [if they] return to their own country."

Ridiculous: Speaker Pelosi Actually Sent Biden a Reminder to Give an Address to Congress.  Speaker Nancy Pelosi is actually reminding "President" Biden what his job is.  On Tuesday, Pelosi sent a reminder to Biden to address the nation at a joint session of Congress.  "Nearly 100 days ago, when you took the oath of office, you pledged in a spirit of great hope that 'Help Is On The Way,'" she wrote.  "Now, because of your historic and transformative leadership, Help Is Here!"  "In that spirit, I am writing to invite you to address a Joint Session of Congress on Wednesday, April 28, to share your vision for addressing the challenges and opportunities of this historic moment," Pelosi wrote.

The Editor says...
Isn't that what the telephone is for?  Why is Ms. Pelosi making such a public display?

Pelosi: Growth of U.S. 'might necessitate' expanding the size of the Supreme Court.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday that the growth of the U.S. population and the size of the economy "might necessitate" expanding the size of the Supreme Court.  New York Democratic Rep. Jerry Nadler and Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Ed Markey formally introduced the Judiciary Act of 2021 on Thursday [4/15/2021] that would add four justices to the Supreme Court, which would create a liberal majority 7-6.  The court now has what is considered a 6-3 conservative majority.

The Editor says...
The U.S. grew quite a bit in the 20th century, and nobody ever said that was a problem.  The House of Representatives has a size proportional to the population, but the Executive and Judicial Branches do not.  Speaker Pelosi is hoping you don't know that.

Pelosi Hijacks Everything for Her Agenda — Even the Holocaust.  One would expect the commemoration of something as tragic and sacred as the Holocaust be done in a respectful manner and not be manipulated for political goals.  Such was not the case this week with Nancy Pelosi's statement sent out on Holocaust Remembrance Day; known in Israel as Yom Ha'Shoah.  Instead, she exploited the murder of six million Jews by Hitler and his regime into a manifesto of Democrat false talking points and the demonization of millions of Americans associated with conservatism and who voted for President Trump.  It was sacrilege and shameful.

Nancy Pelosi and senior Dems kill their own party's bid to pack the Supreme Court with four more liberal judges.  Nancy Pelosi effectively killed an upcoming Democrat proposal to expand the Supreme Court by four seats by saying Thursday [4/15/2021] she would not bring the bill to the House floor.  The bid from a group of Democratic lawmakers would change the number of justices for the first time in 160 years and wipe out the conservative majority built under Donald Trump.  'Do you support [Rep.] Jerry Nadler's bill to expand the Supreme Court by 4 seats and would you commit to bringing that bill to the floor,' a reporter asked the House Speaker at a press conference on Thursday.  'No,' she said.

Pelosi Says She Has "No Plans" to Bring Nadler's Bill to Expand Supreme Court by Four Seats to House Floor.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Thursday morning [4/15/2021] said she does not support Jerrold Nadler's bill to expand the Supreme Court by four seats.  According to a report by The Intercept, Congressional Democrats, with House Judiciary Chairman Nadler leading the charge, will unveil the new court packing legislation on Thursday.  When asked about Nadler's bill, Pelosi said she didn't completely reject the idea of packing the Supreme Court.  She said she supported Joe Biden's commission to study the proposal.

Mr. Pelosi's shrewd investments raise suspicions.  Paul Pelosi, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband, is one heck of a trader!  He purchased about $10 million in Microsoft shares through call options on March 19th when the stock was trading at $230.35.  Days later, Microsoft was awarded a contract by the U.S. Army valued at $22 billion and inked a deal to buy an artificial intelligence firm.  It's stock has soared about 12% since Mr. Pelosi's initial investment.  Now, it could be Mr. Pelosi is just a skilled investor — he owns and operates Financial Leasing Services Inc., a San Francisco-based real estate and venture capital firm, where he and his wife have amassed a personal fortune of about $114 million.  It also probably doesn't hurt Mrs. Pelosi is the most powerful woman in the U.S. House, tasked with overseeing, regulating and appropriating monies to the executive branch that go to the very firms Mr. Pelosi invests in.

Nobody talks tough like an 81-year-old woman with 24/7 armed guards.
'I'm A Street Fighter': Pelosi Says She Would Have Fought Capitol Rioters.  Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday [4/13/2021] she would have fought Capitol rioters should they have entered the House chamber, according to USA Today.  Pelosi and other members of Congress were in the House chamber on Jan. 6 when a group of rioters entered seeking to disrupt the certification of the 2020 presidential election.  Pelosi was asked by USA Today what she would have done if she wasn't evacuated in time, to which she responded, "Well, I'm pretty tough.  I'm a street fighter.  They would have had a battle on their hands."  Pelosi held up her four-inch stiletto heels and said, "I would have had these," according to USA Today.

"I mean, I do think at a certain point you've made enough money."  (Who said that?)
Biden's Infrastructure Plan Could Boost Pelosi's Investment Portfolio.  President Joe Biden's $2 trillion infrastructure plan includes a provision to boost electric vehicle use — which House speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) stands to personally benefit from.  Pelosi's husband Paul purchased between $500,000 and $1 million in Tesla investments in December.  Biden's infrastructure plan will lead to a windfall for Tesla and its shareholders.  On Wednesday, Biden unveiled his sweeping plan, which sets aside $174 billion for electric vehicle subsidies, charging stations, and other provisions designed to push more Americans into electric cars over a decade.  Democrats are anticipating a contentious and lengthy battle over the infrastructure package.  With a narrow Democratic majority and no support from Republicans, Pelosi will need to marshal every vote she can to get the bill passed.  It will fall on the Speaker to unify progressives who worry the bill is inadequate with moderate Democrats who worry the bill's tax hikes could imperil their reelection chances.  Pelosi is one of the richest members of Congress, with a net worth valued around $115 million.  Congressional spouses can legally invest in companies their spouses help regulate, as long as they don't act on private information.

Nancy Pelosi, The Real Insurrectionist.  The media are aglow with news that two U.S. Capitol Police officers are suing Donald Trump for inflaming, encouraging, inciting and directing a riot at the Capitol on Jan. 6.  It fits their narrative.  But this doesn't and therefore gets no coverage:  The real insurgent is the speaker of the House.  Two days after the regrettable events at the Capitol, which no serious or honest person would call an insurrection, Democratic Speaker Nancy Pelosi called U.S. Army Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.  Her objective was to strip Donald Trump of his constitutional executive authority. [...] Judicial Watch believes "the call between the House speaker and the nation's top military officer — regarding the powers of a sitting president — set a 'dangerous precedent' that could affect future presidencies."  So concerned was the group that it filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the Defense Department, which so far hasn't responded.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi's Effort to Steal GOP House Seat Blows Up In Her Face.  Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's effort to steal GOP House Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks has completely blown up in her face after Democratic challenger Rita Hart withdrew her challenge.  Miller-Meeks had previously won her district in Iowa by 6 votes however Hart then ran to House Democrats including Pelosi to try to steal the seat from Miller-Meeks.  "I have made the decision to withdraw my contest before the House Committee on Administration," Hart announced on Wednesday.

Pelosi-Backed Push to Steal Iowa House Seat Fails, and the Reason Why Should Be Heeded by the GOP.  The dispute in Congress over Iowa's 2nd Congressional District race is now officially over.  Democrat nominee Rita Hart, who took her case to the Democrat-controlled House in December, instead of the courts, after losing the election by 6 votes to her Republican opponent, Mariannette Miller-Meeks, released a statement on Twitter just minutes ago declaring that she was withdrawing her petition to the House Administration Committee because she couldn't effectively combat the wave of negative PR she and her fellow Democrats brought on themselves over the issue.

Nancy Pelosi Says Climate Change is Causing Illegal Aliens to Head North to U.S.A..  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) said in a virtual press conference on Thursday that climate change is one of the factors causing illegal aliens to head North out of Central America toward the United States.  "Before COVID, a few months — oh, about half a year before COVID — I did take a delegation to the Northern Triangle — speaking of travel — to see what the causes of migration were," Pelosi said.

Nancy Pelosi On Trying To Steal Iowa House Seat:  I Am The House.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi defended her decision Thursday to continue offering her blessing to a Democratic probe into a contested Iowa House race certified by bipartisan state election officials after multiple recounts in Republicans' favor.  Failed Democratic candidate Rita Hart lost the race in Iowa's 2nd Congressional District to freshman Republican Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks by a mere six votes.  Despite Miller-Meeks serving in the House as the certified winner upon multiple recounts, Hart has continued to contest the results with a direct appeal to the lower chamber, bypassing state avenues for challenging a race.

Pelosi says it's never too late to set November's election straight.  It's hard to quit when you're ahead.  That's why, in trying to pick off the House seat of Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks (R-Iowa), Democrats effectively re-opened the whole November election.  If Republicans act on this, they will turn defeats into victories.  Many close races need to be repeated because, in as many as 30  states, elections were not conducted by the rules but, instead, were done in ways that favored the Democrats.  Widespread use of absentee ballots and drop boxes never had the required approval of state legislators.  This includes the key swing states, where Republican majorities in the state legislatures still have the power to hold repeat elections.  People think it's too late after the vote is certified.  We can thank Pelosi and her House Administration Committee for telling the world it's never too late — although it is none too soon, either.

Pelosi Says It Is Her Right To Seat And Unseat Any Member Of Congress She Wants But Can Pelosi Do That?  Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday [3/25/2021] downplayed concerns from centrist Democrats who warned party leaders against potentially overturning the election result of a closely contested House seat in Iowa.  The House Administration Committee is considering a challenge from Democrat Rita Hart, who is contesting the results in Iowa's 2nd District after the state certified that Republican Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks won by just six votes.  Pelosi maintained that the House has the authority to adjudicate contested elections[.]  After a recount, Iowa certified the tally and Miller-Meeks was seated in January.  Pelosi today argued that she's not obligated to seat certified election winner:  If I wanted to be unfair I wouldn't have seated the Rep from Iowa because that was my right on the opening day.  I would have just said, you're not seated, and that would have been my right as Speaker to do.

Liberal Georgia Lawmaker Arrested For Constantly Banging On Door During Election Overhaul Bill Signing.  A new video shot early Thursday evening [3/25/2021] shows Georgia Rep. Park Cannon, D-Atlanta, being led from the rotunda at the state Capitol in handcuffs.  Georgia State Patrol troopers have since said charged Cannon.  Rep. Cannon was seen being escorted by two Georgia State Patrol troopers as protesters shouted around her.  Cannon was reportedly taking part in a protest over the signing of the voting reform bill passed by both houses earlier in the day.  "She was instructed that no one was in the front office and to stop beating on the door," troopers wrote in a statement released about the incident.  [Video clip]

Pelosi Thinks She's Queen and Can Declare the Winner of Iowa Congressional Race.  The race in Iowa 2 was declared some time ago now, with Republican Mariannette Miller-Meeks defeating the Democrat Rita Hart by six votes.  Miller-Meeks was certified by Iowa as the winner after a recount was done and after a court decision declared Miller-Meeks the winner.  Hart could have challenged the decision in the Iowa courts but instead, she decided to try to get the Democratic House to overturn the results and declare her the winner knowing that she likely wouldn't have prevailed in any further challenge in Iowa.

The Iowa steal:  To Democrats, 'democracy' means unbridled majority power.  Democratic candidate Rita Hart is trying to steal a U.S. House seat in Iowa.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is helping her do it.  Pelosi wants to overturn Republican Mariannette Miller-Meeks's very narrow win in Iowa's 2nd Congressional District.  Her efforts are so blatantly partisan, dishonest, and anti-democratic that a few members of Pelosi's own party caucus have come out against her.  "Losing a House election by six votes is painful for Democrats," wrote Minnesota Rep. Dean Phillips, the first congressional Democrat to voice firm opposition to this scheme.  "But overturning it in the House would be even more painful for America.  Just because a majority can, does not mean a majority should."

Unreal: Nancy Pelosi Says Biden Has The Situation At The Border 'Under Control'.  The situation at the border is an absolute mess and completely out of control.  Everyone knows this.  Yet Nancy Pelosi had the nerve to stand in front of reporters this week and claim that Joe Biden has the situation under control.  Once again, Democrats are telling you not to believe what you can see with your own eyes.

What? Pelosi Says Illegal Immigrants are "Legitimate Heirs" Of Founding Fathers.  During a speech on Thursday [3/18/2021], House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that the illegal immigrants brought by their parents are the "true and legitimate heirs of our founders."  With that logic, you could make the argument that anyone in the world that comes to the United States with absolutely no ancestors in this country is also an heir of the founding fathers. [...] The speech echoes the basic leftist view that The United States of America is not the homeland of those men and women who came here centuries ago to build up a nation from scratch, but a nation of immigrants where everyone is entitled to the fruit of the labor of the ancestors of many Americans.  Many of these ancestors were farmers from England, Germany, and other European countries who came here to build the nation, expecting nothing given to them by the government.  The leftist and progressive idea is that this nation is open to anyone and everyone of any culture, religion, or background, regardless of what Americans who have been here for generations prefer.

PELOSI: 'Dreamers' and Migrant Children [are] the 'True and Legitimate Heirs of Our Founders'.  Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi weighed-in Friday on the nation's immigration crisis along the southern border; calling 'Dreamers' the 'true and legitimate heirs' of America's founding fathers.  "They are true and legitimate heirs, these Dreamers are, of our founders," said Pelosi.  "Their hopes and dreams and aspirations for a better future for their children.  Those are American traits.  They all make America more American," she added.

The Editor says...
[#1] "Aspirations for a better future for [one's] children" is not a uniquely American trait.  It is more or less universal, is it not?  [#2] This country was not founded (nor is it now operated and maintained) for the benefit of those who would sneak into it illegally, now that the U.S. became wealthy and successful.  [#3] Some fraction of those who are immigrating to the U.S. (legally or otherwise) are trying to escape from Mexican or Central American hellholes, and really are yearning to be free.  The rest, I perceive, are just coming here for free stuff.

Yes, it sends a message, but that's not it.
Pelosi says citizenship for illegals sends message to world: 'We value the diversity of America'.  House Democrats on Thursday hailed the expected passage of two bills that would grant citizenship rights to millions of illegal immigrants already in the U.S.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called it a sea change in the nation's stance on immigration.  "We say to the world we are making a very big difference in how we value the diversity of America," she said at her weekly press conference at the U.S. Capitol.

Speaker Pelosi Has a Familiar Person to Blame for Biden's Border Crisis — Donald Trump.  Speaker Nancy Pelosi has a familiar scapegoat for Biden's border crisis:  Donald Trump.  On ABC's 'This Week with George Stephanopoulos, the Speaker made it clear who she thinks is responsible for the migrant surge. [...] The most humanitarian thing the Democrats could do for the world is ensure that the United States remains a beacon of freedom and hope.  It should export free markets and the rule of law to other countries, instead of importing their impoverished masses.  That would be vastly more effective and compassionate than letting millions of illegal immigrants into the country.  Then again, how else would the Democrats make up the millions of votes they would lose due to their disastrous policies?

Speaker Pelosi is Confronted About Trying to Steal Election, Her Answer is Breathtaking.  Speaker Nancy Pelosi was confronted on ABC's "This Week with George Stephanopoulos" about the election she is trying to steal. [...] The hypocrisy is simply breathtaking.  Speaker Pelosi just led an impeachment against Donald Trump for purportedly 'inciting' an election when he was merely arguing that the election was 'stolen.'  All that Donald Trump had sought was due process in tight election races, so that legal votes were counted and illegal votes were tossed out.

Pelosi: Climate Change Causing 'Humanitarian Challenge' at the Border.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said Sunday on ABC's "This Week" that climate change has contributed to the surge of migrant children crossing the U.S.-Mexico border.  Pelosi said, "There are more children, about 600, 700 more children, unaccompanied children coming over the border.  This is a humanitarian challenge to all of us.  What the administration has inherited is a broken system at the border, and they are working to correct that in the children's interest. [...]" [...] She added, "My most recent trip to the northern triangle, that would be Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador.  You saw the impact of climate change.  These people were leaving because of the drought.  They couldn't farm, and they were seeking other ways to survive. [...]"

The Editor says...
Ms. Pelosi offers no evidence (nor is there any to be had) that illegal immigration is motivated by climate change, or any proof that the climate on the Mexican side of the border is any worse than the climate on this side.

You can vote all you want.  The elites will decide who wins.
Pelosi Says She's Open to Overturning Republican Win in Iowa District.  The Democrat-run House of Representatives is open to overturning a tight Republican victory in an Iowa Congressional district, said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday [3/11/2021].  Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks (R-Iowa) defeated Democrat Rita Hart by six votes during the Nov. 3 election.  When asked about a scenario in which Democrats would unseat Miller-Meeks, Pelosi said it was a "hypothetical" situation but later said it's possible that it could happen.  "Well, I respect the work of the committee," she told reporters in her weekly press conference.  "I did see, as you saw in the press, what they decided to — and they were following my, as I read it, the requirements of the law as to how you go forward.  And how you go forward is the path you're on and we'll see where that takes us.  But there could be a scenario to that extent.  Yes."

Pelosi's perverse 'love' excuse for Biden's border disaster.  Showing just how far from reality she operates, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday waved off the growing border disaster by explaining that President Joe Biden's policies are all about a "love of children."  "I trust the Biden administration's policy to be based on humanitarian and love of children rather than political points or red meat for their — for their Republican base," she said.  More:  "The difference between this administration and one before is great in terms of how we meet the needs of these children," including having "a humanitarian reception for them wherever they are."  Reality check:  Biden's policies and irresponsible rhetoric have prompted a surge of unaccompanied children crossing the border.

Pelosi Hit With Lawsuit Over Phone Call To General Trying To Prevent Trump From Accessing Nuclear Codes.  Government watchdog group Judicial Watch announced a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit for access to a telephone call between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and General Mark Milley shortly after the Capitol riots.  The call was revealed in a letter from Pelosi to Democrat lawmakers in which she described an attempt to prevent an "unhinged" President Trump from accessing the nuclear codes at the time.  Judicial Watch alleges that the Department of Defense has not provided any response to their FOIA request, which was filed on January 11th.

NRCC Poll Reveals Which Lawmaker Is The 'Most Unpopular Elected Official in the Country'.  In what might not surprise anyone, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is the most unpopular elected official in the country.  A new survey from the National Republican Congressional Committee found that Republicans are in a strong position to take back the House in 2022, in part because Pelosi is so unpopular in every "key" subgroup, including women, Hispanics, and union households.

Judicial Watch Is On the Case, Ferreting Out More Info on Pelosi Coup.  Back in January, we wrote about the effort by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca) to take away President Donald Trump's military authority with an underhanded secret reach out to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs, Gen. Mark A. Milley. [...] The Speaker of the House doesn't have any right to interfere in the chain of command between the president and the military and had they acceded to her wishes there could have been a big problem.  There's no way any of that was proper or even close to being constitutional.  But thankfully, Judicial Watch is on it and isn't letting it go.

Judicial Watch Wants to Know More About Pelosi's Coup Attempt.  Government watchdog Judicial Watch wants to know more about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's behavior and actions on January 8, 2021, when she called General Mark Milley in an attempt to take away then President Trump's military authority.  The group has issued a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the Department of Defense for details of the call.  The lawsuit demands "any and all records regarding, concerning, or related to the telephone call between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and General Mark Milley on or about January 8, 2021," and "any and all transcripts, recordings, and/or summaries of the call, as well as any other records produced in preparation for, during, and/or pursuant to the call."  Judicial Watch is also looking for "any and all additional records of communication between Gen. Milley and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi between November 1, 2020, and the present."

Pelosi's 'kids and Joe' story was incomprehensible:  We do not say open sesame, we say ... open Biden'.  Every year, the House Democrat Caucus holds an Issues Conference in the early spring, and this year was the same save for one glaring difference.  Thanks to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, this year's conference turned into a stunningly sycophantic and horrifyingly cringe ode to President Joe Biden.  During the event — which, to be clear, was the same event where the White House cut Biden's feed after he told Pelosi that he'd be "happy to take questions" from her caucus — the House speaker introduced the president to her caucus by praising him endlessly.  The whole thing, from beginning to end, was pure sycophancy.  [Video clip]

$140 million 'Pelosi subway' axed from Senate COVID bill: parliamentarian.  Funding for a rail project near House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's California district that Republicans denounced as wasteful was removed Tuesday from President Biden's $1.9 trillion COVID-19 stimulus bill.  The Senate parliamentarian ruled the $140 million appropriation wasn't allowed under the so-called Byrd rule that polices unrelated items in budget reconciliation bills.  Republicans singled out the rail project as an example of unrelated "pork" in the bill, which is being rammed through Congress without Republican support using special rules that allow a simple majority vote in the Senate.

Dems justify Pelosi call for majority control of Jan. 6 commission, because Republicans are 'delusional... dangerous' people.  While House Speaker Nancy Pelosi cited precedent and prerogatives of current presidents to justify putting a majority of Democrats on a so-called "1/6" panel to investigate the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, others in her party have another reason why they don't want to seat many Republicans.  Quite simply, some Democrats say, they don't trust the post-Trump GOP to seriously probe the incident because they believe, without evidence thus far, that some Republican members were either in on it or responsible for it.  "We do not owe delusional deniers a role or a platform in a commission designed to try to ferret out extremism and violence to prevent its recurrence," said Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-Va.), according to The Hill.  "These people are dangerous."

Pelosi, Who Claims to Oppose Gerrymandering, Funnels $300,000 to Democratic Gerrymandering Group.  After calling for an end to partisan gerrymandering, House speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) quietly funneled hundreds of thousands of dollars to former attorney general Eric Holder's effort to redraw electoral maps in favor of Democrats, filings show.  Pelosi's leadership PAC, PAC to the Future, pushed $300,000 to Holder's National Democratic Redistricting Committee late last year.  In 2019, Pelosi said partisan gerrymandering efforts "compromise the integrity of our democracy."  Holder's group is gearing up for a once-a-decade redistricting process that significantly influences which party controls Congress.  It will serve as a data and legal hub and as a go-between for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and state legislatures, according to Politico.

It's possible that Trump supporters fell into a trap on January 6.  Dinesh D'Souza did a podcast pointing out Nancy Pelosi's peculiar behavior regarding events at the Capitol in the days leading up to January 6. In the five weeks since then, Pelosi has turned Washington, D.C. into an armed, walled city and is working with the White House to crack down on dissenting views — meaning any views that run counter to the Democrat party narrative.  There's something weirdly un-American about what we're seeing now. [...] D'Souza points out something we've all noticed, which is that, on January 6, many of the people peacefully walked and gawked through the Capitol after having been invited in — and treated respectfully — by the relatively small number of Capitol police officers on duty.  If you've ever visited the Capitol in the past, you know that's not how it ordinarily works.  Even stranger is the fact that Capitol police officers, who expected to be pulling extra duty, given that everyone knew that large numbers of Trump-supporters would be flooding D.C., were instead sent home for the day.  Additionally, D'Souza points out, when Trump offered 10,000 National Guard troops to help out because the rally was in town, both those in charge of the Capitol and D.C. mayor Muriel Bowser rebuffed the offer.  As speaker of the House, it's inconceivable that Pelosi wasn't part of this decision.

Who was Nancy Pelosi's father?  FBI released 60-year-old files on Jan. 6.  While the nation's attention was focused on the events transpiring at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, the FBI was quietly releasing files from 60 years ago concerning an investigation into the father of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.  The files detail a two-month investigation into Thomas D'Alesandro Jr., a Maryland politician who served in a long career in Congress and as mayor of Baltimore, Just the News noted in a Feb. 19 report on the FBI files.  The investigation was ordered by the White House after President John F. Kennedy has said he planned to appoint D'Alesandro to a position on a government watchdog board that reviewed defense contracts.  A routine FBI name check revealed "allegations" against D'Alessandro, according to a Feb. 6, 1961 teletype from "FBI Director."  The director at the time was J. Edgar Hoover.

Amid Capitol riot, FBI released files from Kennedy-era investigation into Nancy Pelosi's father.  While Washington, D.C. was riveted Jan. 6 on events at the U.S. Capitol, the FBI quietly released a trove of files from an "urgent" — yet seemingly controlled — investigation 60 years ago into Nancy Pelosi's father.  The files reveal the results of an intense two-month investigation into Thomas D'Alesandro, Jr., a Maryland politician who served in a long career as a member of Congress and mayor of Baltimore.  John F. Kennedy's White House ordered the investigation after JFK planned to appoint D'Alesandro to a government post.  A routine FBI name check revealed "allegations" against D'Alessandro, according to a Feb. 6, 1961 teletype from "FBI Director."  The director at the time was J. Edgar Hoover.

Speaker Pelosi, when will you answer these 13 security questions?  Livid about what she called the "failure at the top" in the wake of the Jan. 6 breach of the U.S. Capitol, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., insisted that the sergeant-at-arms for the House of Representatives be fired.  He subsequently resigned and Pelosi appointed an interim sergeant-at-arms.  The Senate made a similar move.  Pelosi also moved to fire the chief of the Capitol Police. [...] At a press conference on Jan. 7, Pelosi said, "There was a failure at the top of the Capitol Police, and I think Mr. (Steven) Sund — he hasn't even called us."  Who is ultimately "at the top of the Capitol Police?"  Pelosi knows she is.  She and the Senate leader, though they don't manage day-to-day operations, have ultimate authority over Capitol security.  They failed.

House Republicans demand answers from Pelosi on security decisions leading up to Capitol riot.  Top Republicans on several committees are demanding answers from Speaker Nancy Pelosi regarding security decisions made leading up to and on the day of the Capitol riot on Jan. 6.  House Administration Committee Ranking Member Rodney Davis, House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Jim Jordan, House Oversight Committee Ranking Member James Comer and House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes sent a letter to Pelosi, D-Calif., on Monday, saying that "many important questions" about her "responsibility for the security" of the Capitol on Jan. 6 "remain unanswered."  Davis, Jordan, Comer and Nunes pointed to claims made by former Capitol Police Chief Steve Sund, that he, on Jan. 4, approached the sergeants at arms to request the assistance of the National Guard.  Sund, in a letter to Pelosi last month, said the former Sergeant at Arms Paul Irving said he was concerned about "the optics" and didn't feel the "intelligence supported it."

Worshipping At The Altar Of Power.  Despite professing their Catholicism, both Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and President Joe Biden publicly support abortion.  It is no accident that neither Pelosi nor Biden would have the power they now wield if they opposed abortion as their professed faith requires.  But they too have made a choice to kneel at the altar of power.

Pelosi Has Meltdown, Walks Away From Podium, Then Comes Back For Another Meltdown.  Trump has been found not guilty after another useless impeachment sham, and Democrats are [angry].  The most upset, however, is far-left House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.  After Trump was acquitted by a vote of 57-43 on Saturday [2/13/2021], Pelosi had a total meltdown in front of reporters during her press briefing.  Then when everyone thought she was "finished", she got triggered and came back to the podium for another Oscar-worthy freakout.

Furious Nancy Pelosi crashes press conference to tear into Mitch McConnell, rage at 'cowardly' Republican senators who voted to acquit Trump.  Nancy Pelosi crashed the House impeachment manager's post-trial press conference Saturday [2/13/2021] to rage against Mitch McConnell and call out Republicans' 'cowardly' vote to stop Donald Trump from being convicted for 'incitement of insurrection'.  'It had not been my intention to come to this press availability,' Pelosi said as she spoke to reporters on the fifth and final day of the Senate proceedings.  'But what we saw today was a cowardly group of Republicans who apparently have no options because they were afraid to defend their job — respect the institution in which they serve.'  'But why I came over was because I listened to Mitch McConnell,' Pelosi continued.

Pelosi rules out censure after Trump acquittal.  After the Senate voted to acquit former President Trump, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Saturday [2/13/2021] ruled out censuring the former president — an idea that several Republicans had floated in recent days.  "Censure is a slap in the face of the Constitution.  It lets everybody off the hook, it lets everybody off the hook," Pelosi told reporters following the Senate impeachment trial at the Capitol.  "Oh, these cowardly senators who couldn't face up to what the president did and what was at stake for our country are now going to have a chance to give a little slap on the wrist?" Pelosi said while slapping her own wrist.

All that constant hatred must really take a toll on Nancy's health.  Maybe she should dial it back a little.  Move on.  Time for healing.  Forward!

Pelosi Banned Congresswoman's Military Officer Son From Attending Her Swearing-In.  Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi would not allow Republican New York Rep. Claudia Tenney to have her son present in the gallery for her swearing-in Thursday, Tenney told the Daily Caller.  Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer sent out a tweet Thursday morning with the news that Pelosi denied Tenney's request to let her son, a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, watch her get sworn in from above the floor in the gallery.  The Daily Caller contacted Tenney about the news, to which she confirmed it was true.  "I guess he's considered a risk," Tenney told the Caller.  Tenney said that Pelosi told her the news about her son not being allowed to watch from the gallery in a "text from staff and in person," adding that there were "several exchanges."  Tenney's son received a phone call from former President Donald Trump before he deployed to Iraq in 2017.

Pelosi: US Capitol Police 'Martyrs' Will Get Congressional Gold Medal.  U.S. Capitol Police officers who protected the building during the events of Jan. 6 will receive the Congressional Gold Medal, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced on Feb. 11.  Officer Brian Sicknick, who was involved in confronting rioters at the Capitol, died the day after the breach, while Capitol officer Howard Liebengood and Metropolitan officer Jeffrey Smith committed suicide days after the riot.  Eugene Goodman, another officer, was hailed for successfully guiding Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) away from the mob and back to the Senate chamber on Jan. 6.  "It's been such a sad time for us, but as we see what is being presented, we also see the extraordinary valor of the Capitol Police who risked and gave their lives to save our Capitol, our democracy, our lives.  They are martyrs for our democracy.  Martyrs for our democracy, those who lost their lives," Pelosi told reporters in Washington during a press conference.

The Editor says...
The officers who committed suicide are not martyrs.  The officer who went back to his office and suffered a stroke is not a martyr.  The officer who did his job and escorted RINO Romney back to the Senate chamber is not a martyr.  A martyr is someone who is killed because of his or her (religious) beliefs.  Nancy Pelosi is using the unfortunate deaths of three police officers as political leverage, in order to amplify the myth that her political opponents are all dangerous extremists.

Public Servants or Parasites?  When did politicians and federal employees start calling themselves "public servants"? [...] Was Nancy Pelosi serving the public interests when she withheld COVID-19 relief for months — just to deny President Trump a win?  Was she also serving her constituents when she bought stock in Tesla just days before President Asterisk signed an order directing all agencies to switch to electric cars?  There's a term for that — "insider trading."  Being the civic-minded public servant she is, I'm sure she'll be sharing her windfall with her constituents.

Why are Democrats Pushing Impeachment?  Nancy Pelosi is one of the snidest and most petty representatives in Congress.  I have personally heard from several Democratic representatives their beliefs that Pelosi held up critical immigration and COVID legislation that they privately supported, for no other reason than that it might help Trump look good.  They supported the holdups because they feared retribution from Pelosi.  If you want to hear Pelosi's partisanship, listen for yourself to her opening comments during the beginning of the House debate on Arizona's electoral votes.  Pelosi is sufficiently petty to demand impeachment as a final boot out the door.  This is my personally favored reason and stands as a testament to the characters of Chuck Schumer, Adam Kinzinger, Liz Cheney and others who have joined them.  While several junior Democrats may have done so out of fear, Democratic leaders and Republicans had no good excuses.  But there could be another reason; one that fits well with Democrats' recent militarization of D.C. and gross violations of our 1st Amendment rights to speech and to assemble and the redress of grievances. [...]

'That's it!': Nancy Pelosi abruptly ends weekly press conference after snapping at reporters.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi failed to hide her rising irritation as she abruptly ended her weekly press conference after snapping at reporters.  The California Democrat testily called one reporter's question simply a "waste of time" after being asked about former President Donald Trump's impeachment trial and then angrily responded to another query about stripping Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene from her House committees.  Pelosi may have been wearing a mask as she held her weekly briefing, but her ebbing patience was on clear display as she appeared to be done with the questions towards the end of the meeting.

Republican congressmen Louie Gohmert and Andrew Clyde fined $5,000 each for refusing to go through a new metal detector in the Capitol.  Two Republican congressmen, Louie Gohmert and Andrew Clyde, have been issued fines of $5,000 each for refusing to pass through the metal detectors that were installed outside the House chamber following the Capitol riot last month, multiple news outlets reported Friday [2/5/2021].  The House officially passed new rules this week that include a $5,000 fine for bypassing the security measure on the first offense and $10,000 fines for additional offenses.

GOP pols want Pelosi to pay $5K for ignoring her own metal detector rules in Capitol.  Hours after The [New York] Post revealed that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi docked $5,000 each from the pay of two GOP congressmen for flouting her new metal detectors, a group of Republican pols demanded she pay the same fine for the same offense.  GOP members of the Committee on House Administration made the tit-for-tat demand Friday night, claiming Pelosi had been seen on Thursday [2/4/2021] entering the House Chamber without going through the metal detectors she herself had ordered installed after the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.  "Yesterday at approximately 9:59 a.m. multiple members observed the Speaker of the House entering the House Chamber without completing security screening," the members wrote to the House acting sergeant in arms.

Noxious Nancy's cynical timing.  Nancy Pelosi took hypocrisy to new heights during the memorial for the police officer who died after the Capitol riots — and that's saying something, for her.  The newfound faux reverence for law enforcement from the House speaker and her "defund the police" comrades after cheering on and inciting violence against cops most of last year is grotesque.  Despite Pelosi's nauseating insincerity as she presided over the two-day commemoration of Brian Sicknick, the dignity and grace of his grieving parents and police colleagues mercifully elevated the honors high above tawdry political opportunism.  Because, of course, what else is it but cynical opportunism of Pelosi to wait 27 days after Sicknick's death to offer his family the opportunity to bury him with full honors, less than a week before her second impeachment show trial of Donald Trump hits the Senate.

Nunes claims powerful forces are shielding Pelosi from tough questions about poor Capitol security.  House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes suggested Monday that Speaker Nancy Pelosi ought to be more heavily scrutinized for an apparent lack of security ahead of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, but she's been protected by the establishment and social media majors.  "Ultimately, she's responsible, OK, whether or not her staff or her sergeant of arms, you know, she's the mayor of the capitol.  It's a big responsibility," the California Republican told Just the News' John Solomon.  Nunes referenced reports that Capitol Police had requested support ahead of the date when a joint session of Congress was set to meet to count electoral ballots and then-President Trump was scheduled to address a large rally.  That support included National Guard troops and protective fencing around the building.

Pelosi slammed for 'inciteful' rhetoric after calling pro-2nd Amendment GOP lawmakers 'enemy within'.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's use of inciteful rhetoric shows no signs of abatement, as the California Democrat who previously referred to then-President Donald Trump as a "domestic enemy" called Republican lawmakers the "enemy within."  The reason for this egregious slander is because some GOP lawmakers want to carry a firearm — see Second Amendment.  Continuing to exploit the storming of the U.S. Capitol earlier this month with extreme hyperbole — it wasn't an attempt to overthrow government — for maximum political value, Democrats are working hard to demonize and dehumanize the GOP.  "I do believe, and I have said this all along, that we will probably need a supplemental for more security for members when the enemy is within the House of Representatives, a threat that members are concerned about in addition to what is happening outside," Pelosi said Thursday [1/28/2021] while speaking to reporters.

Terrified members of Congress demand funds to hire 24-hour armed guards or local police protection at their homes and demand their addresses are kept secret.  Speaker Nancy Pelosi blasted armed Republican members of Congress as 'the enemy within' the House of Representatives on Thursday as lawmakers asked for additional funds for security amid increasing threats to their safety.  'We will probably need a supplemental for more security for members when the enemy is within the House of Representatives,' she conceded at her press conference on Capitol Hill Thursday [1/28/2021].  Asked to specific who she meant by the enemy within, Pelosi forcefully responded:  'It means that we have members of Congress who want to bring guns onto the floor and have threatened violence on other members of Congress.'

'Enemy is within the House': Pelosi warns of GOP security threat.  Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday that House Republicans pose a threat to Democrats, and she pledged additional federal money to boost security in the Capitol.  Pelosi said Congress must pass a supplemental spending bill to provide funds "for security for members, when the enemy is within the House of Representatives of a threat that members are concerned about, in addition to what is happening outside."  Pelosi and Democrats fear Republican members of Congress carrying guns.  The California Democrat has installed metal detectors at the doors to the House chamber, prompting protests from GOP lawmakers.  When asked to elaborate on the enemies comment, Pelosi told the Washington Examiner, "It means we have members of Congress who want to bring guns on the floor and have threatened violence on other members of Congress."

So much for harmony and unification.
Speaker Pelosi labels Republicans 'the enemy within'.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is under fire for labeling Republican lawmakers as "the enemy within." On Thursday, the top Democrat called for better security at the U.S. Capitol and baselessly accused Republicans of endorsing political violence.  Pelosi appeared to refer to remarks by congresswoman Marjorie Taylor-Greene (R-Ga.) who said she would bring a gun to the capitol to protect herself.  The House Speaker's remarks are widely seen as a call for a political purge against Republicans.

Hatred has pickled Pelosi.  Nancy Pelosi is on a hatred rampage.  The proximate cause is Donald Trump, but he, like Melville's white whale, is only the trigger.  Captain Ahab will die rather than look at the hatred festering inside of him.  And he will destroy the entire ship, just as Pelosi is doing to Congress.  She has hunted President Trump for four years.  Impeaching Trump after his presidency is unconstitutional, without cause, and [...] crazy.  Our history books will excoriate the House during her reign.  A Russian hoax and two fake impeachments are more important than getting COVID relief to American citizens.  Pelosi is driving the Republic to destruction.  She spent our $32 million for the Mueller investigation, on a fake Steele dossier leaked by Hillary Clinton.  Trump's Russian collusion, it turned out, was all a lie.  Yet, Joe Biden's Ukraine and China collusion, it turns out, are very real.  Biden daily threatens our national security with his compromised position and earned wealth from these two countries, but the Left ignores that real and present danger.

Pelosi's big Tesla stock buy raises ethics questions.  A watchdog group called out House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for a very profitable Tesla stock deal shortly before the Biden administration released plans to make the federal automobile fleet electric.  Last month, Paul Pelosi, a wealthy venture capitalist and husband of the California Democrat, bought up to $1 million of Tesla stock when the price was roughly $640.34 a share.  The price had shot up to $838 a share by Thursday [1/28/2021] on the NASDAQ exchange.  Tesla stock has been a darling of Wall Street for years, and the company stands to reap huge profits if the federal government moves to an all-electric fleet.

Nancy Pelosi's Recent Stock Purchase Raises Ethical and Legal Questions.  Nancy Pelosi's latest financial disclosures, revealed over the weekend, show that she purchased 25 Tesla call options with a $500 strike price and an expiration date of 3/12/2022 on December 22, 2020, paying between $500,000 and $1 million for the option.  There were other purchases of AllianceBernstein Holdings, Apple, and Walt Disney on the disclosure, but the Tesla purchase is raising eyebrows, as Chris Katje of Yahoo!  Finance noted, "as arguments could be made that the companies stand to benefit from new President Joe Biden's agenda."  On Monday [1/25/2021], Joe Biden announced his "Buy American" executive order that includes a plan to replace the U.S. government's fleet of cars and trucks with U.S.-assembled electric vehicles.  Tesla, General Motors, and Nissan all produce electric vehicles in the United States.

Joe Biden Signs Executive Order to Make All Federal Vehicles Electric.  President Joe Biden signed an executive order Monday to phase out the federal government's use of vehicles that run on gas and replace them with ones that run on electricity.  The process is part of Biden's "Made in America" executive order, which the president claims will create one million additional jobs in the auto industry in America.

I'm sure this is completely unrelated:
Nancy Pelosi's husband has plowed up to $1 million into bullish bets on Tesla stock.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband has placed up to $1 million worth of bullish bets on Tesla stock, the politician revealed in a financial disclosure form last week.  Paul Pelosi, who runs an investment firm, bought 25 call options on Tesla stock with a strike price of $500 and an expiration date of March 18, 2022.  He spent between $500,001 and $1 million on them on December 22.

Nancy Pelosi:  Inside Trader.  If you wonder which businesses Democrats intend to favor, one easy answer is to look at what companies Nancy Pelosi is investing in: [...]

Woman accused of stealing Pelosi's laptop may be destroying evidence: feds.  The Justice Department said it was concerned that the Pennsylvania woman accused of stealing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's laptop during the US Capitol riots might be destroying evidence — and encouraging others to do so.  Lawyers for the department said during a hearing Monday they believe Riley Williams changed her phone number and deleted her Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Reddit, Telegram and Parler accounts, CBS Pittsburgh reported.  Williams, 22, was arrested on Jan. 18 after her former romantic partner accused her of taking a laptop or hard drive from Pelosi's office with the intention of selling it to the Russians, authorities have said.  She was charged with entering a restricted building and violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, according to Department of Justice records.

Perhaps she will get the same punishment Hilliary Clinton got for destroying the evidence on her secret email server.

Pelosi's Past Comes Back To Haunt Her — She Once Praised Unionists Storming State Capitol Of Wisconsin.  Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's (D-CA) own words have come back to bite her as it's been revealed that she once praised the unionist who stormed the Wisconsin state capitol.  This comes as she's leading the charge to impeach former President Donald Trump for supposedly inciting the Capitol riots earlier this month.  In 2011, unionists stormed the Wisconsin State Capitol as they tried to block a vote on collective bargaining reform, according to Fox News.  Despite the fact that Pelosi has been vocal about condemning the Capitol riots in which a rightwing mob stormed the Capitol to protest the election results, she was singing a very different tune a decade ago when Democrats were the ones doing the storming.

Ken Cuccinelli Claims Pelosi Asked For 'Crew-Manned Machine Guns' In Washington.  Acting Deputy Homeland Security Secretary Ken Cuccinelli told Fox News' "The Story" Tuesday [1/19/2021] that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi asked for "crew-manned machine guns" to be a part of security forces in Washington, D.C., ahead of President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration.  Cuccinelli and anchor Martha MacCallum were discussing the presence of 25,000 National Guard troops in the nation's capital after pro-Trump rioters stormed the U.S. Capitol building Jan. 6.  "A division," Cuccinelli said, responding to MacCallum's assertion that the number of troops is greater than the number in Afghanistan and Iraq.  "You have a division.  The last up of thousands of these troops was requested by the speaker through the Capitol Police.  She even wanted crew-manned machine guns in Washington.  That was rejected because there's simply no use for that in a security arrangement for a civilian undertaking.  Just — so some of this has gone beyond any legitimate security need."

The Editor says...
Nancy Pelosi doesn't like guns — especially machine guns — unless her people are pointing them at us.

Acting DHS Deputy Secretary:  Pelosi Wanted 'Crew-Manned Machine Guns in Washington — That Was Rejected'.  Acting DHS Deputy Secretary Ken Cuccinelli told Fox News's "The Story with Martha MacCallum" on Tuesday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi requested more National Guards be sent to Washington, D.C., even requesting "crew-manned machine guns" — a sharp contrast between how she reacted when President Donald Trump wanted to use the military to deal with the violence from nationwide Black Lives Matter protests.  "Violence has no place and violence must be addressed," Pelosi told National Public Radio's (NPR) "All Things Considered" in June 2020.  "But there is no reason for the U.S. military to be called out for this."  MacCallum noted that 12 members of the National Guard were pulled from their duty in D.C. for what was described as inappropriate texts or social media.

"I'm Not Worried About That"; Pelosi Doesn't Care That Another Trump Impeachment Would Undercut Biden's "Unity" Message.  To the surprise of absolutely nobody, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she's not worried about the affect that an impeachment trial would have on "unity" in our country.  "You mentioned unity and a message of unity yesterday," the reporter began to ask.  "Are you at all concerned about moving forward with an impeachment trial that could undercut that message and alienate all the conservative supporters of the President?," he added.  "No," Pelosi responded bluntly.  "No I'm not worried about that," she added.

People think Nancy Pelosi Was Arrested for Treason by US Marshals after Asking Military to Ignore Trump.  Nancy Pelosi admitted that she attempted to convince the military to ignore the sitting President of the United States because he supposedly 'lost' the election.  The militaries response was 'this is tantamount to treason', one day later Nancy Pelosi was nowhere to be found, then again the next day.  When Nancy Pelosi finally emerged she was surrounded by US Marshals and Secret Service agents even though the Capitol Building is now swarming with armed National Guard, National Guard that Pelosi herself called 'weekend warriors' and specifically wanted the Marines to guard the Capitol.  [Video clip]

Pelosi grabs photo-op with same troops she called 'stormtroopers' during BLM riots.  There can only be one explanation for the level of hypocrisy regularly seen from Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a complicit media, but the California Democrat took her duplicity to a mindboggling level when she exploited National Guard troops deployed ahead of Joe Biden's inauguration next week.  Like a tin-pot dictator, Pelosi stood before a formation of soldiers lined up in front of the U.S. Capitol and thanked the troops and their families "for protecting the Capitol and our democracy." This coming from the same Democrat who expressed concern "about the increased militarization" of the nation's capital when the National Guard was brought in during the Black Lives Matter riots over the summer.  The same person who called federal law enforcement agents "stormtroopers."

Dem Leader Nancy Pelosi Bites her Lip as She Gets Caught in a Bold Faced Coronavirus Relief Lie.  CBS News' "60 Minutes" host Lesley Stahl on Sunday questioned House Speaker Nancy Pelosi over Congress' stalling of a COVID-19 relief package, suggesting both parties were to blame for obstructing the bill.  "That was held up for eight months," Stahl said to Pelosi.  [Video clip]

Pelosi Breaks Her OWN House Floor Rules; Calls Herself 'Wife, Mother, Daughter, Grandmother'.  There may be an abundance of contenders but there is no politician in America today who is more of a massive hypocrite than Speaker Nancy Pelosi.  The top congressional Democrat has done more to divide the nation and foment unrest than anyone with her ongoing stunts, dangerous demagoguery, and the failure to get anything done with the exception of waging a personal vendetta against President Trump.  That Madame Speaker is an unhinged, double-dealing, lying fraud was well established before the spectacle of a rushed last-minute shame impeachment to give Trump one more kick before he leaves office and in the glory of the moment, Pelosi slipped up on Wednesday.  During her sanctimonious speech about why Trump has to be removed mere days before his historic presidency ends, Pelosi broke her own ridiculous floor rules that imposed Soviet-style speech restrictions on terms related to gender.

Priorities: Nancy Pelosi Took 9 Months to Negotiate COVID Stimulus II, But Took Less Than 7 Days to Impeach Trump.  Just when you think the height of Speaker Nancy Pelosi's hypocrisy and excess cannot get any higher, she surprises.  Pelosi spends 9 months supposedly negotiating a second Stimulus package, "for the American people", and blamed everyone from Republicans to Big Corporations to President Trump for the failure of not being able to craft a suitable relief package.  In October, Pelosi TWICE lied on national television, both on CNN.  [Video clip]

Nancy Pelosi wants $5,000 fines for lawmakers who ignore metal detectors, dodge Capitol security.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has proposed a new rule that would fine members who do not follow new security protocols, including walking through a metal detector, in the wake of the deadly U.S. Capitol riot.  Pelosi announced the proposal Thursday [1/14/2021]. The House would not vote on the new rule until Jan. 21., a day after the inauguration, Pelosi's office said in a statement.  The proposed fines, $5,000 for a first time offense and $10,000 for a second, come as some House Republicans have openly defied the metal detectors placed outside the House chamber in the days that followed the riot.

The Editor says...
Your opinion may vary, of course, but I perceive this as Nancy Pelosi accusing Republican members of Congress of smuggling weapons onto the floor of the House.  No doubt, the Members who are armed would be happy to tell her, if she were to ask.

Liberal Journalist Calls For Pelosi To Be Expelled From House.  Whatever you think of Twitter, it does have one virtue: it has exposed the carelessness and low intelligence of American journalists.  Gohmert couldn't have been clearer, and yet these dim bulbs didn't get the point.  More importantly, though:  these journalists thought the quote was shocking when they attributed it to Gohmert.  One wanted to expel Gohmert from the House.  So, does that mean that she now wants Nancy Pelosi expelled?  And do the other journalists quoted above now think that Pelosi's quote was reprehensible?  Will they jump to condemn Pelosi, as they did Gohmert?  Or are statements tolerant of rioting, or even encouraging rioting, perfectly fine when they are made by Democrats?

Nancy Pelosi names Trump impeachment managers, including Eric Swalwell.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Tuesday [1/12/2021] named nine managers who will lead President Trump's second impeachment — including Rep. Eric Swalwell, who faced recent controversy for his relationship with a Chinese spy.  The House on Wednesday will begin impeachment proceedings against Trump for allegedly inciting last week's Capitol riot.  The impeachment is expected to pass with overwhelming Democratic support and at least three Republican votes.  Impeachment managers are in charge of presenting the charges, giving them significant public attention and associating their own credibility with the case.  They are particularly prominent during Senate trials.

Pence Uses Pelosi's Own Words Against Her As He Explains Why He Won't Invoke 25th Amendment.  Vice President Mike Pence used House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-CA) words against her in a letter on Tuesday evening explaining why he will not invoke the 25th Amendment to remove President Donald Trump from office.  The letter comes as Democrats have introduced an article of impeachment against the president for the riot that broke out last week in the nation's capital.  Democrats have also sought to pressure Pence into removing Trump from office by invoking the 25th Amendment.

I try to avoid posting conspiracy theories, but this one caught my attention.  Because it comes from Lt. General Thomas McInerney:  Following the storming of the Capitol building on Wednesday by what appears to be mostly Antifa members, apparently, there were also some others mingled in with them that General Thomas McInerney claims were Special Forces who seized several laptops from offices of politicians who are engaged in treason against the United States.  [Video clip]

General Thomas McInerney:  Special Forces Grabbed Traitors' Laptops.  [F]ollowing the storming of the Capitol building on Wednesday by what appears to be Antifa members, apparently, there were also some others mingled in with them that General Thomas McInerney claims were special forces who seized several laptops from offices of politicians who are engaged in treason against the United States.  [Video clip]

Gen. McInerny Says Special Ops Got Pelosi's Laptop:  "This is high treason!"  I've been telling you the next 10 days will be unlike anything you have ever witnessed in America.  And now it's not just me telling you.  How about a three star general?  General McInerny just released several videos where he breaks down everything that happened at the Capitol.  And it's NOT what you think!  There were several Special Operations being ran all at the same time.  The guys with heavy military gear that you've heard about?  Those were the white hats.  They went in and seized multiple pieces of evidence, including Nancy Pelosi's laptop.  [Video clip]

Understanding the Rage.  Speaker Pelosi can't help herself.  She pours gasoline on the fire, threatening to impeach President Trump in his last week in office.  Foolishly thinking that when Trump is gone, we will forget the insults, the abuse and simply go away.  That we will abandon support for the policies that were working so well.  They think they can go back to playing footsie with the Communist Chinese, open our borders to unlimited illegals and abandon any pretense of fiscal responsibility.  That we will accept her turning MAGA into a four-letter word that should never again be used in polite company.  Dream on sweet pea.  In reality, she and the entire establishment are scared spitless.  It's all bluster.  They fear Trump.  They're terrified by the 75 million who voted for him.  Their act is wearing thin.  In their hearts, they know or suspect that Trump actually won.  They can only pretend that we are going away.

Democrats close in for the kill — not just Trump, but all Republicans.  On Sunday, Nancy Pelosi (D. — white supremacist representative occupying a seat a black person should have) announced that on Monday [1/11/2021] the House will vote to ask Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office — nine days before his term ends.  Should Pence refuse to do so (and he has allegedly announced that he will refuse), Pelosi will proceed with impeachment legislation.  The pretense for all of this is that Trump has gone stark raving mad and may even drop a nuclear bomb in the next nine days.  The reality is that Pelosi's laptop disappeared on January 7 and Trump probably has it in front of him.  She is desperate to remove him from power before he does something with it.  Indeed, rumors abound that Trump is gearing up for the legal equivalent of a nuclear strike.  The claim is that he will unleash myriad facts about election fraud, including a Roman connection that runs through Obama.

Nancy Pelosi Basically Asks for Civil War with Insane Gambit to Expel GOP House Members.  Well, so much for that whole unity thing.  Democrats are out for blood, emboldened by the idiotic alt-right fools who rushed the Capitol last week, and they are seemingly going to play every card they have.  Impeachment is already being talked about, perhaps even after Biden's inauguration, in order to ban Trump from every holding office again.  But if that wasn't dumb enough, Nancy Pelosi is now looking at the 14th Amendment as a way to expel Republican members of the House for supposedly taking part in an "insurrection." [...] I don't typically think we are on the verge of a national break-up (despite thinking our politics have devolved into a dumpster fire), but you start expelling dually elected GOP House members based on ridiculous claims that they somehow supported a rebellion and that's what you are egging on.  Perhaps Pelosi is too naive to realize that, but I suspect she knows exactly what she's doing.

Pelosi Invokes Nixon, Calls on GOP to Impeach Trump.  During an interview with CBS's "60 Minutes," House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) invoked Watergate and former President Richard Nixon as she discussed her push to impeach President Donald Trump. [...] Pelosi announced Sunday [1/10/2021] in a letter that the House of Representatives would move to impeach Trump just 10 days before his presidential term is over because he "represents an imminent threat" to "our Constitution and our Democracy."

Nancy Pelosi Just Admitted Why Dems Obstructed COVID Relief Bill for Eight Months.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-IllegalHairAppointment) appeared on Sunday's [1/10/2021] "60 Minutes" to discuss a wide range of topics with Lesley Stahl, most of which had to do with painting Donald Trump as an insurrectionist and Republicans as his accomplices.  After giving Stahl a breathless, faux-emotional tour of the damage her office sustained (Pelosi was more upset about a broken mirror in her office than she was about thousands of businesses destroyed during months of BLM rioting), the two sat down to chat.  While Pelosi did her best to seem like the reasonable leader protecting the Republic from crazed animals, Stahl pushed back on some of Pelosi's assertions — to Pelosi's chagrin.  One such topic was whether Pelosi's tone and "obstruction" cost the Democrats seats in November.  [Video clip]

Nancy Pelosi Cuts to the Chase on What the Capitol Riot Was All About.  Nancy Pelosi's got people pegged. On Saturday [1/9/2021], the 80-year-old politician took a stab at the disposition of those who stormed/trespassed at/walked into/breached/overtook/invaded — take your pick of verbs — the Capitol Wednesday.  According to Nancy, it was related to the coronavirus.  More importantly, it was about — sit down and get a blanket — racism.

Pelosi: Trump 'Deranged, Unhinged, Dangerous' and Should Be Prosecuted.  During a portion of an interview set to air on Sunday's broadcast of CBS' "60 Minutes" that was released Friday, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said that President Donald Trump is a "deranged, unhinged, dangerous" president of the United States.  Pelosi said, "Well, sadly, the person who's running the executive branch is a deranged, unhinged, dangerous president of the United States, and only a number of days until we can be protected from him.  But he has done something so serious that there should be prosecution against him."

Pelosi Sought To Have Military Limit Trump's Authority As Commander-In-Chief.  Democrats, their activist media arm, and their Big Tech doorkeepers are perilously close to pressing their advantage far too far and alienating sympathetic right-leaning and centrist voters with their ongoing attacks on President Trump.  Not only has the sitting President of the United States of America been deplatformed pretty much everywhere on the internet, but House Speaker Nancy Pelosi reportedly spoke to the Joint Chiefs about stripping him of his Constitutional authority with regard to his role as Commander in Chief.

Pelosi Tried to Foment a Military Coup Against Trump.  Those on the left have been accusing President Donald Trump of fomenting an insurrection because of the Capitol protest.  But Trump never called for violence or a riot.  But these are the same people who for four years tried to take out and undermined the duly elected president of the United States through a false Russia Collusion hoax story.  These are the same people who rioted on Trump's Inauguration Day, attacking and setting fire to thing in Washington, D.C.  (By the way, all those arrested in those attacks were ultimately released without any [prison] time for their actions). [...] The New York Times ran a story today [1/9/2021] about the actions of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi behind the scenes against the president.  Talk about "insurrection," she was essentially fomenting a coup, and fomenting the military against the president, trying to remove him from the chain of command.

Pelosi Aide Reports Laptop Was Stolen From Speaker's Office During Breach of Capitol Building.  On Wednesday Blaze TV reporter Elijah Schaffer tweeted a photo from inside Nancy Pelosi's office where emails were left open on the computer screen as staff rushed to flee.  Schaffer wrote, "I am inside Nancy Pelosi's office with the thousands of revolutionaries who have stormed the building."  Pelosi's aide confirmed Friday [1/8/2021] that a laptop was stolen from the Speaker's office.

The Editor says...
If you find Nancy Pelosi's laptop unattended somewhere, leave it alone.  Even if the contents of Pelosi's laptop were as embarrassing as the contents of Hunter Biden's laptop, you can be sure the news media would cover it all up!

Pelosi asks Joint Chiefs about preventing Trump from launching nukes.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi spoke with the nation's top military officer on Friday about precautions in place to prevent President Donald Trump from ordering a nuclear strike or conducting other military hostilities as Democrats seek his removal from office.  The stunning revelation came in a letter from the speaker to House Democrats outlining next steps following a violent breach of the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday by Trump supporters.  Pelosi said she spoke to Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Mark Milley about guardrails in place that could prevent "an unstable president" from wielding the military or the country's nuclear arsenal.

Democrats Eye Vote On Impeachment As Early As Next Week.  With the 25th Amendment out the window, Congressional Democrats are moving on to door #2 — impeachment.  According to CNN, Democrats may vote on impeachment as soon as the middle of next week.  According to the report, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her leadership team are working out a "lightning-quick impeachment process," according to "multiple Democratic sources."

Pelosi Threatens to Do Something Drastic if Pence Does Not Remove Trump Under 25th Amendment.  On Thursday [1/7/2021], House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) threatened to launch into immediate impeachment if Vice President Mike Pence and Trump's cabinet do not immediately invoke the 25th Amendment to remove the president. [...] Ironically, Pelosi and the other Democrats cheapened impeachment by rushing a flimsy partisan case against Trump in 2019.

Capitol protesters loot, vandalize Nancy Pelosi's office.  Rioters vandalized House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's suite of offices in the US Capitol on Wednesday, flipping tables and rummaging through desks after a large mob of Trump supporters stormed the building.  One man was photographed reclining with his feet on a desk in Pelosi's office while other men in "Make America Great Again" hats horsed around with desk phones and streamed the incident.  Another demonstrator was seen grinning as he walked away with Pelosi's podium as unprecedented scenes of looting and chaos engulfed the Capitol after rioters overpowered police and trapped lawmakers in the Senate and House of Representatives chamber, leading to a tense armed standoff.

The Editor says...
This was very likely a false flag operation, just like the spray-painting of Pelosi's garage door a few days earlier, during which the vandals were careful to avoid getting paint on the bricks.  How many people even know where Pelosi's office is?  How many cops had to stand aside to let the "protesters" into that area, and then into that office?  What happened to the National Guard, which was called out at least one day earlier?  Did they stand aside, too?  Once the "protesters" were in Pelosi's office, they acted like 10-year-old brats.  That doesn't sound like a bunch of disgruntled voters reacting to a stolen election.  It sounds like paid actors wearing MAGA gear to throw down a red herring.

Sorry, Pelosi:  Eliminating official use of 'mother' isn't inclusive — it's waging war on women.  One of the first acts of our new House of Representatives might be to cancel Mom.  On Sunday, Speaker Nancy Pelosi's Democratic majority proposed to eliminate "father, mother, son, daughter, brother, sister" and all other language deemed insufficiently "gender-inclusive" from House rules.  They would be replaced with terms like "parent, child, sibling, parent's sibling" and so on.  "Mother" — among the most important concepts in human life — would be erased from the lexicon of the US House of Representatives.  It's important to recognize how radical this is.  And no, it isn't akin to updating federal law to replace "policeman" with "police officer," a rational corrective sought by feminists for generations.

The Future:  It Ain't Gonna Be Pretty.  One of the common memes in our racist-sexist-homophobe world is that Conservatism Inc. betrayed us.  They never stood their ground, always caving to the libs, whether on race, on spending, on deficits, and now on election fraud, Chief Justice John Roberts.  But this assumes that we Americans are actually in control of our fate.  You think?  How about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi just approving a change in House Rules to make them more "inclusive?"  You think Nancy Pelosi, she of the $24,000 side-by-side refrigerators, really believes in this?  But what are fathers and mothers and sons and daughters against another term as Speaker of the House?  And what could be more important to the future of feminism than re-upping your speakership at the tender age of 80?

Report: Pelosi allowed recently COVID-positive rep. onto House floor to vote for her.  Nancy Pelosi has shown yet another example of her hypocrisy regarding COVID-19 lockdown orders.  Under quarantine for coronavirus, Americans are not allowed to travel, visit friends, family or even go to work in some cases.  If you're a Democrat in Congress, however, it's your "congressional duty" to break quarantine, enter the chamber and re-elect radical Democrat Nancy Pelosi as House Speaker.  According to a report Sunday, that's the example the California Democrat set for Americans amid her narrow re-election to the leading role in the lower chamber of Congress.  The report noted that in an effort to win a tough battle for re-election and compensate for seats lost by Democrats, Pelosi encouraged a handful of coronavirus-positive Democrats to break their quarantine in order to vote for her.

AOC and The Squad Sell Out, Help Reelect Pelosi Speaker.  The new Congress convened Sunday [1/3/2021] at noon, and the House held its Speakership vote.  With only a razor-thin majority, Democrats could not afford to indulge 15 members voting against Nancy Pelosi as happened two years ago, nor did AOC or the rest of the 'Squad' defect despite pressure from the left not to "sell out." [...] Because Pelosi couldn't afford to lose any votes, she urged at least one member who tested positive and is still in quarantine to drag herself to the House to vote.

Weakened Nancy Pelosi Wins Another Term as Speaker with Less than a Majority in House.  A severely weakened House Speaker Nancy Pelosi won re-election on Sunday with only 216 votes, less than a majority of 218 in the U.S. House of Representatives.  After voting concluded according to C-SPAN's count, Pelosi had 216 votes and an emboldened House minority leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) secured 209 votes.  Two members, both Democrats, voted for somebody else and three members — also Democrats — voted present.  The fact that Pelosi could not even get a majority of members in the U.S. House of Representatives to vote for her — since the House has 435 voting members, a majority is 218 — is a sign of how much weaker she is since the 2020 congressional elections in November saw massive losses for House Democrats.

There's something peculiar about the vandalism at Pelosi's house.  An ugly story emerged on New Year's Day:  Vandals had attacked Nancy Pelosi's San Francisco house, leaving behind graffiti on her garage complaining about the stimulus bill, along with a pig's head in a puddle of red paint.  People less credulous than the media, though, noticed that the vandals were kind enough to do their dirty deed without touching the brick facing on Pelosi's house.  These may have been polite vandals, or there may be more here than meets the eye. [...] It's entirely possible that this was an Antifa effort and the person spraying paint had some residual compassion for Pelosi.  But it's also possible that this is a false flag effort.

Here Are The Most Annoying People Of 2020.  Coming in the number one spot is Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, for many reasons.  The first annoying thing she did this year that comes to mind is when she showed off her kitchen on "The Late Late Show" while many Americans lined up for hours at food banks across the country. [..] We also can't forget the whole hair salon debacle.  Pelosi was criticized in September for attending an appointment at a hair salon in San Francisco even though businesses were shut down at the time due to coronavirus.  Pelosi claimed the hair salon purposefully set her up and that she would take responsibility for falling for the set up.

Nancy Pelosi Bans 'Gender' Terms Like Mother, Daughter, Father, Son in House Rules.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Rules Committee Chairman James McGovern (D-MA) unveiled the rules for the 117th Congress on Friday, which contain "future-focused" proposals, including the elimination of gendered terms, such as "father, mother, son, and daughter."  "This package, which will be introduced and voted on once the new Congress convenes, includes sweeping ethics reforms, increases accountability for the American people, and makes this House of Representatives the most inclusive in history," said the House Committee on Rules in a statement.

House of Representatives rules may be stripped of all gender references.  Proposed changes to the rules of the House of Representatives would "honor all gender identities" by eliminating such specific terms as mother and father, son and daughter, and aunt and uncle.  Instead, only gender-neutral terms such as "parent," "child," "sibling" and "parent's sibling" would be allowed in the text of the House rules, according to the proposed changes.  The proposed changes — which also include the establishment of a House "Office of Diversity and Inclusion" — will be voted on after the House convenes Sunday for the new 117th Congress.  Another rules change would prevent Republicans from amending a bill at the last minute, the Washington Examiner reported.

Evidence that Pelosi is on the way out:
Pelosi's Home Vandalized with Pig's Head, Fake Blood; Antifa Has Been Accused!.  Nancy Pelosi's home in San Francisco has been vandalized.  Her garage was spray painted, fake blood was poured all over the place, and a pig head was involved. [...] It is highly suspected that the vandalism was due to anger over the stimulus package.  Antifa has been accused.  San Francisco is mostly Democrat, so it is widely believed that this vandalism was NOT carried about by conservatives.

GOP Rep Accuses Pelosi of 'Unprecedented Power Grab' in Iowa Election.  Both Republicans and Democrats in Congress are cautioning House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D) against any interference in the Iowa 2nd Congressional District election.  Iowa certified the winner to be Republican Mariannette Miller-Meeks over Democrat Rita Hart.  The race was a nail biter.  The final tally put Miller-Meeks on top by a vote of 196,964 to 196,958.  Yes, that's only six votes.  And so Hart filed a challenge with the House.  But Republican Rep. Rodney Davis (R-IL) argued that there's no reason why the tiny margin of victory should prevent Speaker Pelosi from seating Miller-Meeks in her rightful place in Congress next week.  "Refusing to seat Rep.-elect Miller-Meeks on January 3rd would be an unprecedented power grab by Speaker Pelosi," Davis said.  "The Speaker's narrow margin, which could be as few as seven, should not be a factor when considering whether or not to seat a member-elect," Davis added."Rep.-elect Miller-Meeks has been certified the winner by the State of Iowa."

How Nancy Pelosi could lose the speakership to Kevin McCarthy.  Is karma going to come calling for Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats?  I know that it sounds crazy, yet another improbable scenario in a season when our hopes have been dashed repeatedly after hearing predictions that a stolen presidential election would be rectified in the courts.  But the scenario that follows is far from impossible, given House rules for voting in person, the tiniest House of Representatives majority (9 votes) in decades, the deep ideological split within the Democrats (downplayed or ignored by the partisan media) and the fading lucidity of Nancy Pelosi.

Uh-Oh: Pelosi May Not Have Votes To Stay Speaker.  This is the nightmare scenario for House Speaker and California Rep. Nancy Pelosi and her nightmare looks like it could come to fruition.  Republicans won every single race for the House that was considered a "toss-up," a total of 27, and not one Republican lost reelection in what was supposed to be a "blue wave" year for Democrats.  And because of that, when it comes time to vote for a new Speaker of The House in January, a small number of House Democrats missing for whatever reason could lead to a Republican being elected Speaker.

Nancy Pelosi:  Georgia Senate Victories Would Give Democrats Supermajority-Like Ability to Pass Legislation.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said during a virtual Sojourner Truth Project event last week that ousting Sens. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) and David Perdue (R-GA) will give them significant power to pass legislation because they can pass bills with a simple majority in the Senate using reconciliation.  Pelosi spoke virtually at the Sojourner Truth Project on December 22 via Zoom.  During the event, she discussed how Georgia Senate Democrat candidates Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock's potential victories would give Democrats significant power to pass legislation in Congress.  She compared their Democrats' potential power to having essentially 60 votes in the Senate.

Pelosi Acts Like a Complete Lunatic During CNN Interview.  You know something is wrong when someone makes a CNN host seem reasonable by comparison.  [Video clip]

Poll:  Speaker Pelosi's Favorability for a Fourth Term as House Speaker Plummets.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-CA) majority in the lower chamber was eviscerated on election night, after pollsters predicted that Democrats would make significant gains in congressional elections.  Pelosi currently holds an 11-seat majority, losing 9 seats thus far; likewise, Republicans lost no incumbent seats thus far, and flipped upwards of 14 seats previously held by Democrats.  A fresh Politico/Morning Consult poll spells even more trouble for Democrats' self-proclaimed "master legislator."  Just 31 percent of voters across the board believe that Pelosi should serve another term as speaker, while 56 percent say that she should step aside.  On the other hand, 53 percent of self-identified Democrats support Pelosi's fourth bid for the speakership, but 83 percent and 59 percent of Republicans and Independents, respectively, oppose her serving as speaker again.

Nancy Pelosi Goes on CNN and Has a Meltdown Too Amazing to Miss.  It appears Speaker Nancy Pelosi wants to move on from having her purely political motives for holding up a stimulus bill before the election scrutinized.  Judging by the election returns, the voters held her accountable by nearly wiping out her majority in the House.  Now it seems some members of the corporate media are also trying to hold her accountable.  This could be a sign the media has decided she needs to go.  This would look similar to the trashing of Sen. Dianne Feinstein.

Poll:  Majority wants Pelosi out as House speaker.  Though Democrats' House majority was nearly wiped out in last month's election, the party appears poised to retain Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for a fourth, two-year stint as speaker next month.  A new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll shows most Democrats think she should keep the gavel, but a majority of voters oppose Pelosi staying on as speaker.  Only 31 percent of all voters think Pelosi should be elected as speaker when the new Congress begins, while 56 percent think she should not.

Kevin McCarthy demands answers from Pelosi on Chinese spy infiltrating Rep. Swalwell's office.  Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., was "so preoccupied with going after President Trump" that he was not "protecting the USA from bad actors," House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said on Wednesday, reacting to a report of a Chinese spy infiltrating Congress.  "This is only the tip of the iceberg because remember what we're hearing.  These are Chinese spies that go down to the level of a mayor," McCarthy told "The Ingraham Angle."  "[China] helps a city council member become a congressman.  This congressman now gets on the intel committee.  They are only selected from the intel committee by the leaders of their party meaning Nancy Pelosi.  Nancy Pelosi is one of the Gang of Eight, along with myself," McCarthy said.  "Did Nancy Pelosi know this had transpired when she put him on the committee?"

Rep. Dan Crenshaw rips into Pelosi for her moral corruption and hypocrisy.  ["]We've all seen the heartbreaking video of Angela Marsden, the owner of Pineapple Hill Saloon and Grill in Los Angeles.  Everyone should have to watch that testimony as Democrats shut down her outdoor — outdoor! — dining while a Hollywood studio sets up shop right next door.  She represents millions of Americans suffering who have taken note of the hypocrisy of these lockdowns, of the double standards, as big businesses can operate freely while small businesses are shamed into submission and told wrongly that they are the ones who must sacrifice to slow the spread.  That the demise of the business they spent their whole lives building is the price to pay because 'if it just saves one life.'  But this is unscientific nonsense, and we all know it.["]

Mitch McConnell Unleashes On Speaker Pelosi on Senate Floor.  On Wednesday [12/9/2020] during a speech on the Senate floor, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell unleashed on Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi as she continues to block COVID-19 funding.  The comments from McConnell also come after Pelosi admitted that she purposely blocked COVID funding and wouldn't agree to a smaller bill unless Joe Biden is in office.

Pelosi Omits Key Detail About First Black Congressman When Announcing Exhibit Honoring Him.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Majority Whip James Clyburn omitted one key detail on Friday during the opening of an exhibit honoring former Rep. Joseph Rainey of South Carolina, the first black congressman in American history.  The exhibit, located in the United States Capitol, is named "Joseph Rainey: 150 years" and celebrates the 150th anniversary of Rainey's swearing-in on Dec. 12, 1870, as the first African American member of the U.S. House of Representatives.  During their presentation of the exhibit, however, Pelosi and Clyburn predictably failed to mention that Rainey was a Republican.

Report: Nancy Pelosi to Lead High-Priced Fundraiser for Democrats Raphael Warnock, Jon Ossoff.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) will fundraise [sic] Monday [12/7/2020] for Georgia Senate Democrat candidates Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff.  Former Baltimore County Executive Ted Venetoulis said Monday that Pelosi will headline a fundraiser Monday [12/7/2020] at 7:30 p.m. ET for the pivotal Georgia Senate runoffs. [...] The flyer for the fundraiser has suggested giving starting at $500 and up to $15,6000. [sic]  Venetoulis added that the Democrats' fundraising would boost the candidates' ground game in Georgia.

The Editor says...
[#1] Please show me the dictionary — and by that I mean a dusty old book with a bunch of words and definitions — which includes the word fundraise.  [#2] If the runoff election is rigged as flagrantly as the November presidential election, what is the purpose of fundraising?  If the Socialist Democrats have rigged the election, the only purpose for a generous donation would be to purchase influence.  Democrats and Republicans really like grassroots activists, until the moment they find out that you don't really have a lot of money in the bank or influence in your neighborhood.

Pelosi Snaps at Reporters, Makes Stunning Admission About Why She Stalled Virus Relief Bill.  Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi finally admitted today [12/4/2020] what Republicans have alleged for months about why she held up an agreement between House Democrats and Senate Republicans on a coronavirus relief package:  She wanted to wait until after the election when presumably Joe Biden would be declared the winner of the presidential race.  The stunning admission was made during her weekly press briefing with reporters this morning where questions were asked about the status of the Wuhan virus relief bill including on how soon she felt both sides could come to an agreement on the particulars.  Prior to the election, Pelosi and other Democratic leaders in the House balked at the Senate's smaller bill and demanded much more. Now she says she's open to a scaled-down bill in the interests of getting something passed soon.

The True Source of Catholic Democratic Confusion.  Townhall reports that Los Angeles Archbishop José Gomez, president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), has formed a working group of bishops expressly "to navigate challenges posed by a Biden administration."  The archbishop is concerned that Biden's "positions that are opposed to Church teaching, like abortion," not only "pose a serious threat to the common good whenever any politician supports them," but cause "confusion among the faithful about what the church actually teaches on these questions."  It's a sad truth that every Catholic officeholder professing a heart aflame for the faith who meanwhile toils night and day for a party at war with every Christian value, wouldn't be in office without the votes of a lot of confused Catholics.  The most notorious burning heart right now beats inside Joe Biden, the man NPR loves to remind listeners "carries a rosary in his pocket and attends Mass every Sunday."  And of course Nancy Pelosi, whose grating sanctimony as she defends abortion as "sacred ground," or lectures on the demands of morality (Trump's impeachment), and depths of immorality (a secure national border), are peddled to Catholics as the prayerful outpourings of an "ardent" practitioner of the faith.

2020 Was The Year Nancy Pelosi Totally Lost Her Touch.  It is looking increasingly like the House of Representatives will be a 222-Democrat-213-Republican split.  This is an absolutely incredible outcome that none of the polling experts predicted.  Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) can only afford to lose four votes on anything, making it impossible to govern.  And guess what?  It's her own [...] fault.  Here's why.  When Nancy Pelosi returned to power as Speaker of the House in 2019, she was greeted as a liberator by the Washington press corp.  There she was, smiling on the cover of every magazine, a welcome conquering heroine replacing evil, Republican nerd Paul Ryan.  But while Pelosi's tenure a decade earlier was lauded for her firm control of a difficult caucus, Pelosi version 2.0 turned out to be a political albatross.

Analysis Busts Pelosi Sneaking $350 Million For 50 Richest Zip Codes Into COVID Relief Bill.  Oh, but they claim they are for the little guy, right?  Look, both parties are being used against the people, and this is just another example of the corruption in DC.  The HEROES Act is nothing more than the former COVID stimulus bill:  unconstitutional wealth redistribution.

Nancy Pelosi Snuck $350M for 50 Richest Zip Codes into COVID Relief Bill, Analysis Reveals.  At some point, when the election chaos is finally settled, Congress will likely turn to passing another COVID-19 stimulus/relief bill.  (Despite the last one being plagued by rampant fraud and dysfunction).  One starting point for negotiations will be the "HEROES Act," a $2.2 trillion bill the House passed in October on a party-line vote by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and her fellow Democrats.  One of the most significant aspects of the HEROES Act is that it allocates nearly $700 billion in federal money for state, local, and tribal governments.  Proponents say this gives localities the funds they need to pay emergency responders and fund programs necessary to protect their communities.  Critics point out that much of this money is used to "bail out" blue states that were already mismanaging their budgets and running up large unfunded pension programs before the pandemic.

Pelosi : Dessert Storm
Impeachment backfired on Nancy.  Charlie Cook, Larry Sabato, and the rest of the cable news experts on American elections all agreed.  Democrats would add 10, 15, and maybe even 20 seats to their majority.  Hahaha.  Matt Vespa reported, "We have over a dozen races that have yet to be called.  Yes, some places are still counting those mail-in ballots.  In some races, they still have a long way to go.  Overall, this week has been terrible for House Democrats.  They were projected to pick up 10-15 seats.  They're probably going to lose 10[,] maybe more. [...]" [...] The progressive communists in their memo just did not get it.  No one cares what ice cream a rich old lady eats.  We have ice cream too.  There is nothing in her freezer the average American cannot buy.  Whilst progressives talk up the working-class concerns, the fact is they are the biggest elitists in the world.  They are out of touch.  They hate large pickups, canned beer, and guns.

Kevin McCarthy fires back at Pelosi's election mantra:  Yes Speaker, it was a 'mandate' — against Socialism!.  House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy fired back at Speaker Nancy Pelosi for her claim that voters gave Democrats a "mandate" on Election Day.  The California Republican mocked Democrats boasting about the election results when, in fact, the so-called "blue wave" they had been predicting never materialized.  McCarthy called out Pelosi for her claims during comments at a press conference on Thursday [11/12/2020].

Why Nancy Pelosi May Have Trouble Remaining Speaker of the House — Where Did Her Votes Go?  Earlier today my RedState colleague Nick Arama reported that House GOP Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is speculating that Nancy Pelosi may no longer have the votes in the House Democrat caucus to remaining Speaker of the House.  A few days ago, when the late-deciding House races started to go against the Democrats, I wrote this story about the possible implications coming out of the House Democrat Caucus conference call where fingers of blame were being pointed over the losses that were suffered by various incumbents who had faced difficult races.  The news has not improved for Pelosi since I wrote my earlier story — in fact, it has gotten worse in that the Democrats have now lost every close race called so far.

Should Republicans Pick the Next House Speaker?  Right now it appears that Republicans will have at least 210 seats in the House in the next Congress, and perhaps a many as 214 if the remaining races where the GOP candidate leads all break their way.  That would leave Democrats with a slim 7-vote majority, and leave the GOP needing to gain only four seats to take control in the next election.  Given that over ten House Democrats didn't vote for Nancy Pelosi to be Speaker after the 2018 midterms, it raises a tantalizing possibility:  Could four House Democrats be induced to support a Republican for Speaker (or even switch parties)?  Highly unlikely, but a second possibility might be considered:  Republicans could pledge their support for a moderate Democrat to become Speaker.  If there is a challenge mounting to Pelosi within her own caucus, the potential for mischief is well nigh irresistible.

Pelosi Is Asked Repeatedly if She Denounces Socialism, Her Answer Says It All.  While we're still trying to figure out the presidential election, the American people did make one message perfectly clear on Election Day: they were not big fans of socialism.  More moderate Democrats chewed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca) out over their being associated with socialism after the results came in.  Some made it plain they felt that hurt the chances of Democrats to win in the House in a leaked House caucus phone call. [...] So one would think that given that concern expressed by her members and the American people that Pelosi might be very clear when asked about socialism, right?  Especially since she's seeking another term as Speaker of the House.  But not so much.

Nancy Pelosi refuses to denounce socialism as she seeks another term as speaker.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is refusing to denounce socialism as the left-wing ideology continues to drive a wedge within the Democratic Party — and as she works to lock down enough support for another term as speaker.  Fox News had requested comment several times — including multiple phone calls to Pelosi's office — with inquiries about whether she opposed the ideology and whether she would allow any self-described socialists elected in the Democratic caucus to hold leadership positions in the House of Representatives.  During a press conference on Friday, Pelosi acknowledged that there was a "difference of opinion" among members of her caucus as a rift between moderates and progressives appears to have expanded following the 2020 election.  Back in 2019, Pelosi insisted during a "60 Minutes" interview that socialism was "not the view" of her party.

Nancy Pelosi's Chief of Staff Is Chief Executive and Feinstein's Husband a Major Shareholder at Dominion Ballot Counting Systems.  The great Sidney Powell was on Mornings with Maria and she unloaded on the monstrous amount of Democrat voter fraud in the 2020 election.  But during this discussion Maria Bartiromo dropped a bomb as well.  During her discussion with Sidney Powell, Maria Bartiromo shared the following about the firm that runs the application used in Michigan where thousands of Trump votes were switched to Joe Biden.  [Video clip] [...] The fact that the Dominion voting machines flipped votes to Biden in at least two instances in Michigan alone is reason to audit all states where Dominion is used.

The Fall of the House of Pelosi.  The D.C. press has built up the myth of Speaker Nancy Pelosi as a brilliant strategist.  That's nonsense.  Pelosi is in power for one reason and one reason only.  It's the same reason that Schumer is the Senate Dem leader.  American elections are being bought up by San Francisco and New York money.  Pelosi is the direct liaison to the SF cash and Schumer is the connection to the NY money.  The money showed up.  Lots of it.  Republicans were outspent at every turn.  But that wasn't enough.  And strategically, Pelosi oversaw a disaster.  Schumer may be getting some flak because Democrat Senate ambitions are not paying off, but Pelosi's public behavior was disastrous.  Trying to take coronavirus relief hostage, and then attacking Wolf Blitzer was not a good look.  Even while the media was touting her genius, Pelosi reacted with a hauteur that won over no one.  Add on the salon video and it was an added scandal that no one needed.

Nancy Pelosi hails 'President-elect Biden' as vote count continues in swing states.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi hailed Democratic nominee Joe Biden as "President-elect Biden" on Friday morning [11/6/2020], saying she was pleased with the outcome of the 2020 election — even as the vote count continues in six states, two of which are headed for a recount.  "Pretty soon the hyphen will be gone from Vice President to President-elect Joe Biden," Pelosi (D-Calif.) told reporters at a press conference with the former veep leading in the Electoral College tally 252-214 and swing states leaning toward a Biden presidency.  "It's a happy day for our country because Joe Biden is a unifier because he is determined to bring people together, because he respects all points of view and as he has said, 'I run as a Democrat but I would govern as a president for all people, whether they voted for me or not,'" she went on.

Pelosi formally announces her run for House Speaker again, asks for support.  Nancy Pelosi formally announced her bid to run for House speaker again as the House Democratic majority is shrinking and moderates are blaming the progressive agenda for their losses.  Pelosi wrote each Democratic member a letter Thursday outlining the agenda for the next two years and asked for their support in reelecting her speaker.  She wrote confidently that Joe Biden won the presidency, referring to working with "President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris."

Newly elected House Republican women break record in 'stunning blow to Nancy Pelosi'.  Republican women were among the biggest winners of Tuesday's [11/3/2020] balloting, breaking a record for House non-incumbent victories and closing in on the record high for the chamber.  The 11 Republican women seeking another House term were all reelected, and another dozen candidates were elected for the first time.  Eleven additional House races featuring GOP women had yet to be called, according to the Center for American Women in Politics.  The center said that "Republican women have already set a new record for non-incumbent House winners, with 12 women elected in 2020 so far, surpassing the previous record of nine, set in 2010."

Report: Democrats Want Nancy Pelosi Out After Lackluster Election Results.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) could once again see her speakership challenged following a lackluster showing of House Democrat candidates in Tuesday's 2020 election. [...] At least seven Democrats were defeated in House races last night [11/3/2020].  When reached for comment about a possible bid to oust Pelosi, the speaker's press representative said her focus is on the presidential election between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden.

Pelosi Calls Amy Coney Barrett An 'Illegitimate Supreme Court Justice'.  Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett is an "illegitimate" member of the court Tuesday [11/3/2020].  In a press conference with Democratic Illinois Rep. Cheri Bustos, Pelosi mentioned Barrett's confirmation, saying, "the president is installing an illegitimate Supreme Court Justice one week before the election, after 60 million Americans have voted, who will dismantle the ACA, and won't say, by the way, when asked, by Senator Feinstein, do you think Medicare is constitutional?  She said she really couldn't say."  Every Democrat opposed Barrett's confirmation.  Republican Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski was on the fence about how she was going to vote but ended up voting in favor of Barrett's confirmation.

Nancy Pelosi Ready to Lead House in 'Prominent Role' if Election Result Disputed.  Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Monday offered her services and that of the House of Representatives to play a "prominent role" in deciding the outcome of the presidential election if disputes mar the final count.  In the event of a tie in the Electoral College the "newly seated House of Representatives" would be called upon to hold a decisive, complicated vote, the New York Times reported, which is where Pelosi sees a role for her possible intervention.  In a rarely seen scenario, the House decides with one vote for each state.  "But let's not worry about that right now," Pelosi told NPR.

"I Feel Very Confident that Joe Biden Will Be President — Whatever the End Count Is" — Nancy Pelosi Issues Frightening Proclamation.  Speaker Pelosi had an ominous proclamation during her latest meeting with reporters.  The far left House Speaker vowed that Joe Biden will be inaugurated as president no matter what the final vote tallies, no matter what the final vote is.

Nancy Pelosi Gets Asked About Hunter Biden During Presser, Promptly Starts Yelling Over Reporter.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) held a press conference Thursday presumably to answer questions on whatever issues reporters wanted to ask her about.  But when one journalist tried to ask the longtime Congresswoman and prominent Joe Biden supporter about the explosive corruption allegations surrounding the Democratic presidential nominee and his son Hunter, Pelosi had a mini-meltdown, shutting the reporter down in ways she's she's become infamous for doing both on Capitol Hill and on national news networks — including those predisposed to pitching softball questions to Democrats.

Pelosi Refuses to Answer Questions on Hunter Biden, Says 'I Don't Have All Day!'  "You're hearing allegations of corruption involving Joe Biden..." started one reporter.  "I'm not answering your question," interrupted Pelosi.  "We're talking about the Coronavirus.  That's it.  I don't have all day for questions."

Nancy Pelosi: 'Joe Biden is a Great Healer'.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) said in an interview with Joy Reid on MSNBC on Monday that former Vice President Joe Biden, the Democratic presidential nominee, "is a great healer."  "Joe Biden is a great healer," Pelosi said.  "He will bring us together.  He will unify us."  [Video clip]  "We have got to heal our country," Pelosi said.  "We have got to heal, crush this virus to heal physically our country."

How to Win Back the House in 2020.  [Nancy] Pelosi was Speaker when we ran our first trillion-dollar deficit, and she's Speaker now, when we return to trillion-dollar deficits.  See a pattern?  Pelosi has given the novel coronavirus a new moniker.  Rather than calling it the "Wuhan virus," or the "China virus" as the president does, our dowager empress has dubbed it the "Trump Virus."  For Democrats, that kind of thing is what passes for brilliance, and it may indeed be effective in shaping the opinions of those with "bumper sticker minds."  But a bumper sticker that would have some grounding in reality would be that the $3.1T federal deficit is the "Pelosi Deficit."  After all, Congress "controls the purse strings." Spending legislation starts in the House; Pelosi runs the House; hence the Pelosi Deficit.  Nancy Pelosi is simply the most expensive woman in human history.  Rational voters who care about our nation and its currency cannot vote for a party that would make such a cranky old woman Speaker of the House and second in line to the presidency.  But how did we get a reprise of this wasteful woman?

Poll: More Americans Blame Pelosi Than Trump for Stalled Coronavirus Relief Talks.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is playing political games with coronavirus relief stimulus and one major new poll reveals that Americans are putting more of the blame on her shoulder.  The Trump administration has proposed a $1.8 trillion compromise, including another round of $1,200 stimulus checks and a $400 boost in weekly unemployment benefits, as part of an ongoing negotiation surrounding a second COVID-19 stimulus bill.  That is still not good enough for Pelosi, however, as she's chosen to reject the deal — and her party might pay the price on Election Day.

Pelosi, after a year of not speaking to Trump, says talks don't have to be 'person-to-person'.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Friday [10/16/2020] confirmed that she has not spoken to President Trump for more than a year — but said working with intermediaries has brought results, and talks don't have to be "person-to-person."  Pelosi was asked by MSNBC host Nicole Wallace if, a year after she walked out of a contentious Oct. 16 meeting at the White House and stopped speaking with Trump, if she would be open if Trump ever reached out to "open that channel of conversation."  "Well, it would depend on what the purpose is," Pelosi said.  She then suggested that she had in fact been more productive negotiating with Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and others in the White House.

Why Haven't You Gotten Your $1,200 Check?  Because Nancy Pelosi Wanted a Political Win.  In politics — especially Washington politics involving big money — the answers are often complicated and convoluted.  When it comes to these stimulus checks, however, it's very, very simple:  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is holding them hostage.  Despite weeks of negotiations, despite the demonstrated commitment of the White House to getting this done as quickly as possible, Pelosi refuses to put forward a "skinny bill" that funds another round of checks without any strings attached.  She wants the whole thing to be conditioned on more than a trillion dollars of unrelated spending — most which would go to blue-state governors who have dug themselves into a fiscal hole and driven their residents out with ever higher taxes and ever greater restrictions on their freedom.  Pelosi and other partisan Democrats are upset, you see, that under President Trump's tax code, reduced state and local tax deductions mean low-tax red states no longer subsidize rich people living in New York and California.

Nancy Pelosi calls Wolf Blitzer a GOP 'apologist' during epic on-air spat.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi sparred with CNN host Wolf Blitzer on Tuesday evening, calling him a "Republican apologist" during a heated exchange over the holdup of coronavirus stimulus.  Pelosi (D-Calif.) slammed Blitzer for having "no knowledge" on the details of relief proposals as he pressed her on why she wouldn't accept a $1.8 trillion package offered by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin — a package that is roughly $400 billion less than the relief legislation the House passed earlier this month.  "[Americans] really need the money right now ... even members of your own caucus, Madam Speaker, want to accept this deal," said Blitzer.

Nancy Pelosi goes into meltdown on live TV.  Kitchen getting too hot, Nancy?  Looks very much as though it is, given that Nancy Pelosi can't stand the heat.  She melted down like the Wizard of Oz's witch after a bucket of water was thrown when asked why she wasn't willing to present President Trump a stimulus bill for simple relief to American workers hard hit by the COVID lockdowns. [...] And we are not talking about a question from a rat-dog like Brit Hume or Catherine Herridge.  The interviewer who drew House speaker Nancy Pelosi's meltdown was the affable Wolf Blitzer, whose soft spot for the Democrats is pretty well known.

Democrat backlash after House Speaker Pelosi sharply rejects Trump's $1.8 trillion coronavirus relief offer.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is facing backlash from some Democrats after she sharply rejected Trump's $1.8 trillion coronavirus relief offer.  President Donald Trump on Friday [10/9/2020] offered a $1.8 trillion coronavirus relief package in talks with Pelosi after urging his team on Twitter to 'go big' — moving closer to Pelosi's $2.2 trillion proposal.  The proposal was dismissed by Pelosi as inadequate.  In a weekly letter to Democratic colleagues, she explained that the proposal lacked a 'strategic plan to crush the virus' and gave President Trump too much power in deciding how the funds would be spent.

Nancy has another Marie Antoinette moment as Wolf blasts her.  Wolf Blitzer dared ask Speaker Pelosi twice why she won't accept the $1.8 trillion package Republicans have offered "because people need the money now."  The woman worth $120 million dollars, give or take, who owns mansions and a vineyard, and owns a huge freezer filled with really expensive ice cream, won't agree to a relief bill that only targets people who need relief. [...] These are a few of the things she wants:
  •   $1 trillion in nearly totally unrestricted funds just for cities and states.  There is one restriction — no money for policing.
  •   It gives federal taxpayer-funded healthcare to illegal aliens — any illegal who wanders into the country.
  •   Her bill allows ballot harvesting and revokes state-level ID laws.
  •   She has funding in it for pot shops.
  •   They want hundreds of millions for public broadcast and funding for local press retirement plans.
  •   Policing of racial makeup of corporate boards is in the bill.
  •   Endless climate change pork that won't do a thing for climate change in our lifetimes [...]

Nancy Pelosi's latest stunt proves she's obsessed with President Trump.  When announcing her 25th Amendment ploy questioning the president's fitness to serve, Nancy Pelosi last week bizarrely criticized President Trump's "erotic" behavior.  She was responding on ABC's "The View" to a Trump tweet about the "stimulus" bill that flashed up on screen.  "What do you think is causing this erratic behavior?" the House speaker was asked.  "Well I think it's true to form," she said.  "The president has always had erotic behavior."  Perhaps she meant to say "erratic," but her Freudian slip begs the question:  Is Nancy Pelosi secretly in love with the president?  She definitely is obsessed with him.  Morning, noon and night, Trump is in her thoughts and on her lips.  She brings him up spontaneously in interviews.

Rep. Doug Collins introduces resolution to push for Pelosi removal as House speaker.  Rep. Doug Collins on Monday introduced a resolution to push for the removal of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, claiming she "does not have the mental fitness" to lead the House of Representatives.  "Speaker Nancy Pelosi's unwillingness to abide by the Constitution, combined with her recent actions, call into question her own mental fitness, which is why it's critical that the House of Representatives demand her removal from the line of succession," Collins said in a statement to Fox News.  A draft of Collins' resolution, obtained by Fox News, argues that Pelosi "is unable to adequately serve as Speaker of the House of Representatives and should therefore be removed from her position."

Democrats delegitimize the Supreme Court because they fear losing power over the rest of us.  "It is a decision of the Supreme Court," Rep. Nancy Pelosi said in 2005, speaking about the eminent domain ruling in Kelo v. New London.  "If Congress wants to change it, it will require legislation of a level of a constitutional amendment.  So this is almost as if God has spoken."  This florid reverence for the high court ought not be lost on the reader, especially given where Pelosi and other Democrats find themselves today.  As the Senate prepares to confirm President Trump's third Supreme Court nominee, they have begun to say outright that the nomination and confirmation procedure outlined in the U.S. Constitution is illegitimate.  In some cases, they are even insinuating that the court itself lacks legitimacy, for which outlandish claim the only visible justification is that they don't like the direction it's going.

A Better Plan Than Pelosi's:  Repeal the 25th Amendment.  It's starting to look like the states never should have ratified the 25th Amendment to begin with.  At least not the part that deals with a dysfunctional president.  Certainly it's hard to imagine a scheme more nefarious than the one that Speaker Nancy Pelosi is advancing.  In one of those crises the Democrats don't like to let go to waste, it would turn over the task of removing an elected president to a panel of — wait for it — psychiatrists.  Mrs. Pelosi's plan has nothing to do with President Trump's case of Covid, contrary to what she suggested in her mincing press conference on Thursday.  She suggested the idea was precipitated by the President's bout of Covid leaving him in an altered state.  On Friday, though, she fetched up with the bill a congressman from Maryland, Jamie Raskin, has been nursing.  We call it the "Et Tu, Brute!  Enablement Act."  Mr. Rankin's bill — he's been nursing it since 2017 — would pick up an unused power granted to Congress in the 25th amendment.  The amendment allows for the temporary removal of the president if a the vice president plus a majority of the cabinet declares he's unable to discharge his duties.  The veep and the cabinet majority just have to transmit that declaration to the Speaker and the president pro-tem of the Senate.  If two-thirds of each house agrees, the president can indefinitely sidelined.

Is There a Doctor in the House?  Too bad there's not a 25th Amendment-type clause in the Constitution granting to the cabinet the power to remove from office the Speaker of the House.  That's our reaction to Speaker Nancy Pelosi's announcement that she is going to lead tomorrow in the House a discussion in respect of using the 25th Amendment against President Trump.  She's upset that he called off negotiations with her over a Covid relief bill.  It seems the Speaker thinks that might have been a reaction to the steroid the president is taking for his case of the coronavirus.  The Daily Mail is reporting that some doctors are concerned that it can cause insomnia, mania, mood swings, and rage.  Then again, Congress itself has been known to cause in ordinary taxpayers insomnia, mania, mood swings, and rage.  So this could yet turn out to be tomorrow quite a discussion.  Plus, one doesn't have to be taking a steroid to see the logic of Mr. Trump calling off negotiations with the Speaker and her camarilla.

Pelosis Take a Big Stake in CrowdStrike, Democrat-Connected Linchpin of Russia Probe.  The cybersecurity firm CrowdStrike rose to global prominence in mid-June 2016 when it publicly accused Russia of hacking the Democratic National Committee and stealing its data.  The previously unknown company's explosive allegation set off a seismic chain of events that engulfs U.S. national politics to this day.  The Hillary Clinton campaign seized on CrowdStrike's claim by accusing Russia of meddling in the election to help Donald Trump.  U.S. intelligence officials would soon also endorse CrowdStrike's allegation and pursue what amounted to a multi-year, all-consuming investigation of Russian interference and Trump's potential complicity.  With the next presidential election now in its final weeks, the Democrats' national leader, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and her husband, Paul Pelosi, are endorsing the publicly traded firm in a different way.  Recent financial disclosure filings show the couple have invested up to $1 million in CrowdStrike Holdings.  The Pelosis purchased the stock at a share price of $129.25 on Sept. 3.  At the time of this article's publication, the price has risen to $142.97.

Kevin McCarthy:  House Members Seeking Path to Determine Nancy Pelosi's Mental Health.  House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy told the Mark Levin Show on Thursday [10/8/2020] that House members are seeking a way to demand House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-CA) fitness to serve be tested after she said President Donald Trump might be removed under the Constitution's 25th amendment.  Speaker of the House Pelosi announced at her weekly press conference with reporters on Thursday that she is seating a commission to study Trump's physical and mental ability to govern. [...] McCarthy said it is the Speaker's mental well-being that is in question given her idea to try to oust the president less than a month before the general election.  "To even bring this up when you're talking 27 days before an election," McCarthy said.  "You know she's second in line right after the vice president."  "It really brings into question her own mental capacity to be Speaker of the House," McCarthy said, adding that Pelosi should be held to the same standard that she's demanding Trump meet.

Nancy Pelosi's obsession.  On Friday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi introduced legislation to create what would be called the "Commission on Presidential Capacity to Discharge the Powers and Duties of Office." The bill, written by one of Pelosi's fellow Democrats, Rep. Jamie Raskin, would provide for the implementation of the 25th Amendment to remove a president deemed too incapacitated to carry out his or her responsibilities. [...] Raskin was one of the original impeachers and, of course, enthusiastically supported impeachment when Pelosi took it up in 2019.  Now, Pelosi and Raskin claim their new 25th Amendment bill has nothing, nothing at all, to do with Trump. [...] When someone says it's not about Trump — it's about Trump.  Indeed, Pelosi's 25th Amendment gambit fits into her party's efforts to remove Trump from office.

Report: Bulk of Pelosi's $2.2 Trillion 'Coronavirus' Bill Goes to Her 'Wish List,' Not to 'Crush the Virus'.  House Democrats, led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) are demanding Republicans accept their $2.2 trillion so-called "coronavirus relief" bill — yet, the majority of the bill and its taxpayer funding would go to liberal agenda items unrelated to coronavirus, analysis by former New York Lieutenant Governor Betsy McCaughey (R) finds.  In her article, "Nancy Pelosi's 'COVID relief' bill is mainly just a left-wing wish list," published Tuesday [10/6/2020] in the New York Post, McCaughey details expensive and irrelevant items in the bill that, she says, will not help to "crush the virus" as Pelosi claims.

Nancy Pelosi's 'COVID relief' bill is mainly just a left-wing wish list.  [Scroll down]  There is almost no disagreement between Republicans and Democrats over sending every American adult a $1,200 check.  But that's a small part of the total bill.  Pelosi's version would fritter away hundreds of billions of dollars closing state and city budget gaps, with nothing long-term to show for it.  We won't be any more prepared for the next pandemic.  Pelosi's bill promises school districts $225 billion, but only $5 billion, or 2 percent, would go to making schools safer by improving air quality or installing sinks and other hygiene upgrades.  The rest is a teachers union protection plan.  Astonishingly, school districts that economize and reduce per-pupil spending or change labor contracts are automatically ineligible for stimulus funding.  The bill allocates $417 billion to state and local governments, with no strings.  This is a lost opportunity to rescue cities that are turning into ghost towns because employees fear the virus and are working remotely.

Pelosi's 25th Amendment Ploy Is About Biden, Not Trump.  On Friday [10/9/2020], [House Speaker Nancy Pelosi] introduced legislation to establish the Commission on Presidential Capacity. [...] Naturally, this seems to be an attack on or trolling of President Trump.  While that may be true, it's also a way for Democrats to place Senator Kamala Harris into the presidency if Joe Biden were to win.  Pelosi's remarks show us the way. [...] Biden is simply a so-called electable "moderate" trojan horse for a socialist agenda.  Since being announced as Biden's vice president in August, Sen. Harris has referred to the Democratic presidential ticket as the Harris/Biden campaign.  Biden has done the same.  In a number of Biden campaign ads, the former vice president is featured as a blur in the background of photos, while Harris is prominently displayed out front.  In August, Harris delivered the pre-rebuttal speech to President Trump's Republican National Convention remarks.  Not Biden.

Trump: Pelosi Hopes to Use 25th Amendment to Replace Joe Biden with Kamala Harris.  President Donald Trump told conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh on Friday [10/9/2020] that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi hopes to use the 25th Amendment to get rid of Joe Biden if he wins the election and replace him with his running mate, Kamala Harris.  Earlier on Friday, Pelosi (D-CA) and Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) introduced a bill to create a "commission" that would evaluate the mental and physical fitness of the president — and initiate a process of removing the president from office, if necessary.

Nancy Pelosi says Donald Trump is 'clearly under medication' which puts him 'in an altered state'.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Friday rolled out legislation that would set up a commission under the 25th Amendment to weigh whether a president is incapacitated — but admitted it had nothing to do with removing COVID-19-stricken President Donald Trump.  She had heavily hyped the move on Thursday but when she unveiled the plan, immediately made clear it was in effect a troll against the president.  'This is not about president Trump.  He will face the judgement of the voters,' Pelosi told reporters in a press conference at the Capitol.

Speaking of mind-altering drugs, if anyone had ever taken Barack H. Obama aside for an unannounce drug test while he was the President, I suspect they would have had a few surprises.  Such surprises would be even more likely today, but less important.

Pelosi Announces Commission to Review the Health and Fitness of President Trump for Office.  In a sign of desperation, Pelosi announces a bill that would establish a commission to review the health and fitness of President Trump for office, which she says is based on the 25th amendment to the constitution.  Pelosi and Congressman Jamie Raskin (D-MD) will hold a press conference tomorrow, Friday, October 9, at 10:15 a.m. E.T. in the Capitol Visitor Center to discuss the introduction of legislation.  The move is viewed as an act of desperation, and gives credibility to the claims that all polls are rigged.  If the Democrats truly believed they were up by high single digits, why would they try to remove a sitting President so close to election?  Especially since such a move has a high risk of backfiring.  If they are attempting to steer the conversion, it's still a high risk strategy by introducing such an explosive variable.

Nancy Pelosi's latest coup-coup nonsense.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says her team is "going to be talking about the 25th Amendment" on Friday [10/9/2020] — the latest in a long line of nutty Democratic fantasies of getting rid of President Trump.  Pelosi, who hasn't actually talked to the prez in months, claims to think he's mentally off thanks to his COVID-19 treatments (or something).  Yet she's only exposing (again) Democrats' own Trump Derangement Syndrome, because this potential coup is an obvious non-starter. [...] The 25th Amendment allows for temporary ouster of a disabled president, but it requires the active participation of a majority of his Cabinet — or the Republican Senate's assent to setting up some other body to rule on his fitness. [...] And there is no provision for removing a president just because Pelosi is offended by his existence.

If You Can't Impeach Just Screech, Screech, Screech!  Nancy promises her base yet another way to depose the President: the 25th!  I doubt she's ever actually read the 25th Amendment but that's okay, that's what she has little people for.  And those bears of little brain have determined that this is a perfectly legal way to pull off the coup.  If you can't impeach you must overreach!  Keep it up Nancy, but be advised that you've just activated the turnabout-is-fair-play rule:  we demand to see all of Joey Baby's medical records as well.  You know, just to demonstrate that he possesses the physical stamina and mental acuity necessary to be leader of the free world.  And while we're at it, what medications are you on Madam Speaker?  I mean, you are third in line.

Mike Pence scraps trip to vote early and will stay in D.C. as Nancy Pelosi unveils 'commission' on 25th Amendment.  Vice President Mike Pence has scrapped a planned trip to Indianapolis and will remain in Washington, D.C. Friday, as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will unveil a 'commission' on the 25th Amendment — a move to remove President Donald Trump from office.  'Nobody's sick.  There's no positive tests.  The VP is planning on traveling on Saturday and Monday,' Pence spokesman Devin O'Malley said.  'We'll have more information on the vice president's schedule next week soon.'  On Thursday, Pence was campaigning in Nevada and Arizona, while Trump remained at the White House, recovering from COVID-19.  He was supposed to travel home to Indiana to vote early in the 2020 election.

Pelosi Will Re-Unveil 'How to Remove a President Without an Election' Legislation Friday.  Now we know what House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's bizarre 25th Amendment comments were really about.  During her Thursday [10/8/2020] press conference, Pelosi told media to come on back Friday to hear something regarding the constitutional amendment by which a president may be removed from office.  Passed in the wake of President Kennedy's assassination in 1963, the 25th spells out what may be lawfully done when a sitting president is deemed no longer fit to serve.

Pelosi questions Trump's health, says 'we're going to be talking about the 25th Amendment'.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi made a dramatic announcement during her weekly press conference Thursday by telling reporters that she intends to discuss a constitutional measure to remove President Trump from office, following questions regarding Trump's health as he recovers from coronavirus.  The 25th Amendment allows for the vice president to become acting president if is determined that the president "is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office."  "Tomorrow, by the way, tomorrow, come here tomorrow," Pelosi said.  "We're going to be talking about the 25th Amendment."  The president fired back in a Thursday afternoon [10/8/2020] tweet.  "Crazy Nancy is the one who should be under observation," he said.  "They don't call her Crazy for nothing!"

Trump breaks off negotiations over stimulus after Pelosi demanded "$2.4 Trillion Dollars to bailout poorly run, high crime, Democrat States, money that is in no way related to COVID-19".  Since the start of the coronavirus, Nancy Pelosi repeatedly has held monetary relief for businesses and individuals hostage to her demands for non-coronavirus objectives, such as voting changes and bailouts of Democrat states and cities.  That hostage taking delayed the Paycheck Protection Plan twice.  Pelosi has been continuing the strategy, and Trump newly energized after his release from the hospital, just broke off negotiations: [...]

It's probably a HIPAA violation to even mention it:
Pelosi questions COVID-19 treatments' effect on Trump's mental fitness after relief talks fall apart.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi pondered out loud whether President Trump's use of an anti-inflammatory drug "was impacting his thinking" after the abrupt halt of negotiations over the next coronavirus stimulus bill, according to reports.  Pelosi questioned whether dexamethasone, a steroid used for treating some COVID-19 patients, had affected the president's thought process as he recovers from his illness, during a Democratic call Tuesday, according to CNN's Manu Raju, who cited two people on the line.  The drug's potential side effects can include vertigo, psychic disorders and mood swings, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The Treasury Secretary has been negotiating on behalf of President Trump.*  So is Nancy Pelosi saying he and the President are both affected by Trump's medications?

Pelosi raises possibility of becoming acting president in chaotic election outcome.  Speaker Nancy Pelosi raised the possibility that she might become acting president if neither President Trump nor Democratic nominee Joe Biden wins enough electoral votes to declare victory in the election on or after Nov. 3.  Pelosi, a California Democrat, told reporters Thursday [10/1/2020] that she is preparing House Democrats for a potential role in determining the winner with a vote by each state delegation.

Pelosi raises possibility of becoming acting president in chaotic election outcome.  Speaker Nancy Pelosi raised the possibility that she might become acting president if neither President Trump nor Democratic nominee Joe Biden wins enough electoral votes to declare victory in the election on or after Nov. 3.  Pelosi, a California Democrat, told reporters Thursday that she is preparing House Democrats for a potential role in determining the winner with a vote by each state delegation.  But if a majority still does not emerge for either Trump or Biden, Pelosi said, "then it goes into another range where the speaker becomes the [president].  It's complicated after that."

Petition Demanding 'Nancy Pelosi is Prosecuted for COVID Violations' Goes Viral.  Thousands have signed the petition calling for Nancy Pelosi to be 'prosecuted for COVID violations[.]'  A petition has gone viral across social media that is calling for Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to be "prosecuted by San Francisco for her flaunting of COVID regulations."  The viral campaign has gathered tens of thousands of signatures in response to Speaker Pelosi being caught on camera in a hair salon without a mask earlier this month.

Pelosi Says President Trump is "Trying to Have the Constitution of the United States Swallow Clorox".  80-year-old Nancy Pelosi on Thursday said President Trump is "trying to have the Constitution of the United States swallow Clorox."  House Speaker Pelosi made this bizarre claim shortly have she once again asserted that Trump told Americans to drink bleach to kill the Coronavirus.  We need term limits.  Pelosi also backed off and said impeaching President Trump a second time "isn't worth the trouble at this point."

Sounds like slander to me.
Pelosi calls police in Breonna Taylor case 'murderers'.  After evaluating the evidence, a citizen grand jury decided the police officers in the Breonna Taylor case acted in self-defense, but House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is calling them murderers, contending there are two systems of justice in the United States.  "Justice was denied for Breonna Taylor and her family," she said Thursday at her weekly news conference.  "Just think if it were your daughter, your sister, your cousin, your relative, your friend, who was murdered by the police, and the charging decision held no one accountable for her death."

Is Nancy Pelosi deliberately trying to stir up riots across America?  [Nancy] Pelosi seemingly believes that 2020 has given her license to violate all political norms.  In the past two months, Pelosi has called federal law officers "stormtroopers," violated the mask rule she insists upon for others, claimed that she was a victim of a hair salon "set up," and blamed California's fires, which are the product of natural heat waves and abysmal land management, on an "angry" Mother Nature.  Her worst act ever, though, could be her siding with the mob with the lie that the Louisville police involved with Breonna Taylor's death are murderers. [...] But looking out for the good of the nation isn't San Fran Nan's style.  Her style is that she will do anything, including destroying America if it means achieving political power.  That's why she went full demagogue, insisting that Taylor was "murdered by the police": [...]

Pelosi doubles down that Biden shouldn't debate Trump: 'Why bother?'.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Friday doubled down on her argument that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden should not debate President Trump, claiming the Republican incumbent and his "henchmen" have no "fidelity" to facts or the truth.  Asked during an interview on "Morning on CBS" whether she still believed the former vice president should skip the three scheduled debates, Pelosi said:  "Oh, I do.  Not that I don't think he'll be excellent.  I just think that the president has no fidelity to fact or truth and, actually in his comments the last few days, no fidelity to the Constitution of the United States."

Pelosi Backs Off:  Nancy Now Says Trump 'Not Worth the Trouble' of Impeaching a Second Time.  Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi backed-away from previous comments she made regarding a second round of impeachment trials to upend the President's Supreme Court pick; saying Donald Trump "isn't worth the trouble at this point."  Pelosi was speaking with reporters at the US Capitol Thursday when she was asked to comment on her efforts to derail the nomination process.  "I don't think he's worth the trouble at this point," said Pelosi.  Pelosi threatened the drastic political maneuver just days ago, [...]

Nancy Pelosi and the Party of 'Science, Science, Science'.  It should come as no surprise that "ardent Catholic" Nancy Pelosi is once again at odds with a bishop.  This time, the disagreement is with her local shepherd, archbishop of San Francisco Salvatore Joseph Cordileone.  The archbishop has started to complain publicly at the way California's lockdown rules are specifically aimed at keeping houses of worship shuttered, and he wants his churches re-opened.  Pelosi, on the basis of no scientific evidence at all, says that because it's not yet "scientifically safe" for people to attend Mass in person, it will be "jeopardizing people's health" to follow Archbishop Cordileone's rash counsel.  "With all due respect to my archbishop," Pelosi says, "I think we should follow science on this."  But the archbishop hasn't got any problem with science.  He just wants an answer to one parishioner's question:  "I can spend three hours indoors in Nordstrom, why can't I go to Mass indoors?"

Nancy Pelosi blurts out 'Good Morning, Sunday morning' after being asked about impeaching Trump over Supreme Court vote.  Nancy Pelosi appeared to lose her train of thought and randomly blurted out 'Good morning, Sunday morning' during an interview on ABC's This Week.  Host George Stephanopoulos had asked the House Speaker about possibility of a second attempt at impeaching Trump in the coming months.  But instead of responding to the anchor's question, Pelosi came out with the random phrase, before laughing and then continuing, while avoiding answering the question.

Unhinged: Pelosi's Comments Concerning Impeachment to Stop SCOTUS Nomination.  [Scroll down]  These folks have gone off the deep end and are dangerous.  Americans, take a look if any of you are considering voting for Democrats.  They are now threatening action against the president for following the Constitution.  Even if you didn't like what Republicans did in 2016, there is absolutely no question that the president and Republicans are completely in accord with the Constitution if they proceed with a hearing now.  There is nothing which is even remotely impeachable.  Attacking it or threatening the president over it is against the Constitution.  It's the Democrats who once again are threatening to upend all norms.  What wouldn't they try to do to get their way?  Democrats have already threatened to try to pack the court if they won back the presidency.  Is there any greater evidence with all this that they should never be voted back in and never given that chance?

Pelosi: House has 'arrows in our quiver' to delay SCOTUS nomination.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Sunday morning that the House has plenty of options available to delay the Senate from acting on President Donald Trump's nominees for the Supreme Court.  "Well, we have our options," she said on ABC's "This Week," replying to host George Stephanopoulos' question about whether the House would consider launching impeachment proceedings to block the confirmation of a Trump Supreme Court nomination.  "We have arrows in our quiver that I'm not about to discuss right now, but the fact is we have a big challenge in our country.  The president has threatened to not even accept the results of the election with statements that he and his henchmen have made."

Pelosi doesn't rule out using impeachment as option to stop Trump Supreme Court pick.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday would not rule out impeachment as an option to stop President Trump's U.S. Supreme Court pick from being confirmed to the bench, saying Democrats will "use every arrow in our quiver" to block the eventual nominee.  Just hours after it was announced that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had passed away on Friday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., vowed that a Trump nominee to the Supreme Court to fill her vacancy "will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate."

Nancy Pelosi's Reign of Error.  Nancy Pelosi made news late last month, and not in a good way.  She was caught on a security camera having her hair done at a San Francisco salon that has been closed to the public during the coronavirus lockdown. [...] If you have followed Pelosi's career over the past 15 or so years, the whole affair was hardly a surprise.  Pelosi is one of the most unpopular figures in the last decade of American politics. [...] Consider, for instance, her dramatic tearing up of Trump's State of the Union address last winter.  It was a cheap and shabby piece of theatrics, quite beneath the dignity of the office of the speaker, and certainly not endearing to the pragmatic voters who make up the broad middle of the country.  But the Democratic "base," the ideological die-hards who make up maybe a third of the country, adored it.  And because Pelosi's position within the party caucus depends, ultimately, on their support, it was a political winner in the moment.

Internal Polls Must Be Really Bad:  After Initially Embracing Maoist Mob, Pelosi Now Calls For Prosecution of Rioters.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) did a complete 180 on Thursday [9/17/2020] and called for rioters to be prosecuted.  "We support peaceful demonstrations.  We participate in them.  They are part of the essence of our democracy.  That does not include looting, starting fires, or rioting.  They should be prosecuted.  That is lawlessness," Pelosi said.  It's too late, Pelosi!  [Video clip]

Donald Trump:  Salon Owner Who Turned in Nancy Pelosi Can Do My Hair Anytime.  President Donald Trump ridiculed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday for visiting a hair salon without a mask, breaking coronavirus restrictions in San Francisco.  "Crazy Nancy.  Crazy as a bedbug," Trump said.  Trump recalled the beauty parlor scandal during a campaign rally in Wisconsin, noting that the salon owner turned in the footage to Fox News, which went viral.  "How about that, Huh?  We love her," Trump said, noting that the salon owner was a supporter of him.  "She can do my hair anytime.  I think I am going to call her in.  Check it out."

'Forget him': Pelosi defends not speaking to Trump for almost a year.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi defended how she has handled her relationship with President Trump — after it was pointed out that the two leaders haven't spoken in almost a year amid mounting crises.  Speaking to MSNBC's Craig Melvin on Monday [9/14/2020], Pelosi (D-Calif.) faced pushback after repeatedly saying "Forget him" while answering a question about countering the commander-in-chief's rhetoric and narrative.  Melvin noted to the nation's highest elected Democrat that, "with all due respect, you just said, 'Forget him.'"  "Yeah, forget him," she responded.  The MSNBC host then asked if she and the president had "just stopped talking?  Is that where we are?"  "You haven't talked to him about the wildfires, I get the impression you probably haven't talked to him about the coronavirus relief bill."  Pelosi and Trump have not spoken since the House speaker got up and walked out of a heated White House meeting in October 2019.

Pelosi Ditches Science, Blames 'Angry' 'Mother Earth' For California's Wildfires.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D) claims to love science when it's convenient.  She routinely scolds President Trump over coronavirus science despite the fact that Dr. Fauci and others on the president's COVID team say he has always followed the science on it.  Pelosi also claims the science is on her side when it comes to climate.  So why, then, did she toss out the science and go full Gaia during a recent interview on the California wildfires? [...] If you're goading others to "follow the science" while you also appeal to the authority of "Mother Earth," you're doing both science and mysticism wrong.

I refuse to play Nancy Pelosi's Washington games.  Playing the game in Washington means dancing to the tune of party leadership, lobbyists, and major donors.  It means you don't play across the aisle.  It means doing as you are told.  It means you are perfectly fine with the status quo, even if that means voting on legislation that spends trillions of dollars of taxpayer money when you have less than 24 hours to review, let alone debate it.  It means staying quiet and abandoning your principles.  I refuse to play that game.

Salon owner Erica Kious is closing her shop after Nancy Pelosi's maskless visit.  San Francisco salon owner Erica Kious said she is closing her business after the infamous visit by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Fox News reported.  "I am actually done in San Francisco and closing my doors, unfortunately," Kious told Tucker Carlson on Wednesday night [9/9/2020].  "I started to just get a ton of phone calls, text messages, emails, all my Yelp reviews ... saying that they hope I go under and that I fail," she told the host about her eSalon.  "So just a lot of negativity towards my business."  Kious has denied Pelosi's accusation that she set her up after releasing a video of the speaker walking around her business bare-faced, sparking charges of hypocrisy in light of the lawmaker's frequent calls to take the coronavirus pandemic seriously.

Business Owner Out of San Francisco After Exposing Pelosi's Secret Spa Day.  The salon owner who released footage of Speaker Nancy Pelosi's secret spa day was forced to close her doors this week; saying she plans on leaving San Francisco and is "afraid to go back" to the city.  "San Francisco hair salon owner Erica Kious is shutting her doors for good after controversy over a visit by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi last week destroyed her business," reports Fox News.

MSNBC host didn't bother to ask Nancy Pelosi about salon controversy during one-on-one interview.  An MSNBC host didn't bother to ask about the controversy surrounding House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's trip to a San Franciso hair salon — in violation of state and local ordinances amid the coronavirus pandemic — when the Democratic leader joined the liberal network on Sunday [9/6/2020].  Maria Teresa Kumar filled in for Joy Reid on MSNBC's "AM Joy" when she gave Pelosi a pass "with a softball interview exclusively focused on attacking President Trump," according to Media Research Center analyst Kristine Marsh.  "Amazingly, Kumar gave the Democrat leader a 14-minute interview and not ONE question about Pelosi hypocritically violating her own city's coronavirus guidelines to visit a salon and get her hair done indoors at the end of August, maskless," Marsh wrote.

The Editor says...
The interview was probably pre-arranged on the condition that any mention of the salon scandal was off-limits.

Pelosi's Labor Day tweet paying homage to 'hard-working families' gets panned amid salon fallout.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who was accused by critics last week of using her platform to damage a local hair salon owner in San Francisco, was called out on Monday over a tweet she posted celebrating the "hard-working families" across the U.S. on Labor Day.  "Over generations, working people across America built the middle class and secured progress for hard-working families," Pelosi wrote.  "House Democrats are unified in our commitment to America's working families.  Happy #LaborDay!" The tweet didn't sit well with some commenters who pointed to her recent visit to a hair salon.

It is time for Nancy Pelosi to be held accountable.  Speaker Nancy Pelosi continues to ignore her own actions as she tries to pass the blame on President Trump.  On Friday [9/4/2020], she shared a report that talks about the potential total of coronavirus deaths and blamed Trump's failure of leadership for it.  The problem is, Pelosi is not so innocent herself.  As previously reported, she was caught on video violating the mask order that she claims were so important.  She violated local laws, while many other Americans around the country have been arrested, jailed, fined, and more for those same actions.  Pelosi has said now is a time for leadership to show the way.

Hair salon owner thanks supporters after more than $300G raised.  San Francisco hair salon owner Erica Kious thanked supporters for their "outpouring" of "empathy and generosity" amid her feud with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi after a crowdfunding effort raised several hundred thousand dollars for her.  During an exclusive interview with Fox News on Monday [9/7/2020], Kious said that a GoFundMe page that was created for her amid the controversy reached its goal, which was $300,000.

50+ Questions No Reporter Dares Ask Joe Biden And His Campaign.  On Nancy Pelosi:  The speaker of the House was recently seen violating local COVID-19 mandates to get her hair done without a mask at a San Francisco salon.  Other Democratic leaders have also violated COVID-19 regulations to keep their comfort.  What are your thoughts on leaders who don't follow the rules that they create, encourage, and condemn others for not following?  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she doesn't believe you should participate in debates with President Trump, accusing him of trying to "undermine the elections" and disrespecting "the democratic process."  Do you believe that participating in debates where you can each share your opinions free of regulation or limitation violates these concepts?

The parable of Nancy Pelosi.  Nancy Pelosi has done everything necessary to turn the story of her private visit to the closed hair salon in San Francisco into a timely political parable.  The video below tells the parable in a form that is both compelling and enraging.  Its power stems from its fidelity to the truth.  I wish I could pay tribute to whoever is responsible for it, but I have no idea.  [Video clip]

Tearful Salon Owner Says 'Mrs. Pelosi Owes the Entire Country an Apology'.  Salon owner Erica Kious told a Zoom press conference on Thursday that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was lying to say she was "set up," and that she should apologize to America and to small business owners and workers struggling to survive.  Pelosi was caught on surveillance camera attending Kious's salon earlier this week for a private hair appointment indoors with a stylist, Jonathan DeNardo.  San Francisco and Alameda counties are still not allowing salons to reopen indoors due to going coronavirus restrictions.

CBS Reporter Goes Against Grain, Torches Pelosi's 'Set-Up' Claim in HaircutGate.  While many in the mainstream media have predictably rushed to defend House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's hypocritical Monday trip to a shuttered San Francisco hair salon for a haircut and highlights, at least one journalist has dared to go against the grain with critical comments condemning her actions and her excuse-making and blame games.  San Francisco salon owner Erica Kious has received bad reviews and death threats after Pelosi (D-CA) bizarrely accused her of a "set-up" over the leaked video footage, which was published Tuesday.  Kathryn Watson, a White House reporter for CBS News digital, took to the Twitter machine not long after the news first broke of Pelosi's display of double standards.  Watson first responded to a tweet reporting that a spokesman for Pelosi proclaimed she didn't know she'd done anything wrong by going to the salon.

Protesters in hair curlers gather outside Pelosi's house.  Protesters rallied at the home of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, following backlash over her recent visit to a San Francisco hair salon.  On Thursday, more than a dozen women showed up outside Pelosi's Pacific Heights mansion wearing smocks and hair curlers.  According to reports, the crowd made noise for more than 30-minutes and hung hair-dryers from a nearby tree.  This came in protest of the video of an unmasked Pelosi walking through a salon with wet hair.

Trump Campaign Savages Nancy Pelosi Salon Controversy In New Ad.  On Friday [9/4/2020], the Trump campaign released a brutal ad savaging House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for getting a hair blow out at a salon in San Francisco without a wearing a mask and then having the audacity to claim she fell victim to a "set up" after getting caught.  Throughout the two-minute ad, Nancy Pelosi is constantly referred to as "Nancy Antoinette," a reference to the French queen Marie Antoinette, [...] Interspersed throughout are video and audio clips of Pelosi advising people to wear masks all the while not wearing a mask herself when visiting eSalon in San Francisco.  The ad reaches its most unsettling moment when clips show Erica Kious, the salon's owner, lamenting about how online trolls have threatened to destroy her business for revealing the truth about Pelosi's behavior.

Watch: Women Hang Blow Dryers on Tree Outside Nancy Pelosi's Home.  A group of demonstrators on Thursday hung blow dyers and curlers on a tree outside House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-CA) San Francisco residence after the top congressional Democrat was caught violating coronavirus lockdown restrictions in her home city to get her hair done without a mask.  The demonstrators, who appeared to all be women, branded themselves as "angry salon customers" who want to get their hair done.

L.A. Lifts Ban on Indoor Salon Services After Pelosi is Caught Breaking the Rules.  Two days after House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was caught breaking the San Francisco Health Department rules, Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn announced the county will revise its coronavirus restrictions to allow indoor salon operations.  On Wednesday [9/2/2020], Supervisor Hahn tweeted the news that salons will be able resume indoor operations at 25% capacity "under modified conditions"[.]

Nancy Pelosi is just too important to obey the rules.  Erica Kious is now getting threats against her life and her business for exposing the hypocrisy of Nancy Pelosi, who accuses the salon owner of a "setup" that caught her on camera getting her hair done indoors, against lockdown rules, and without wearing a mask, to boot.  Does Pelosi really expect people to believe she was ignorant of her city's anti-COVID rules — and also the staffers who bird-dog the schedule of the speaker of the House?  No:  Pelosi knew she was cheating.  She just can't admit she believes the rules don't apply to her but only to those whose livelihoods they're destroying.

As SF shutters and crumbles, Nancy nibbles with the Nobs.  City leaders and activists are working hard to lock down San Francisco businesses and defund the police, but one Democrat didn't get the memo for either.  Speaker Pelosi, in a follow up to the HairGate disaster, lunched Wednesday [9/2/2020] at the Pacific Union Club, an exclusive band of historically incorrect Old San Franciscans.  While many restaurants around the city close for good, her maskless meal reminds one that those in the know can still get a sit-down bite to eat in the city with little ado.  Nor have calls to eliminate the SFPD inconvenienced Ms. Pelosi.  A Department of Homeland Security officer with a bomb sniffing dog walked the whole block before she went inside.

Salon Forced To Relocate Due To 'Death Threats' After Owner Exposed Nancy Pelosi.  On Wednesday's [9/2/2020] broadcast of the Fox News Channel's "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Erica Kious, the owner of the San Francisco hair salon that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) visited, reacted to Pelosi's claim that she was set up by stating that Pelosi or her staff made the appointment and wondered, "if she's in there comfortably, without a mask, and feeling safe, then why are we shut down?" Kious said Pelosi "had called a stylist in, or her assistant did, and made the appointment.  So, the appointment was already booked.  So, there was no way I could've set that up.  And I've had a camera system in there for five years.  I mean, I didn't go in there and turn cameras on as soon as she walked in to set her up.  So, that's absolutely false."  The video shows Pelosi entering a room followed by another person — the stylist, according to Fox News — who is wearing a mask.  It is not clear whether she subsequently put her mask back on.

Queen Nancy Personifies the Democrat Party's Contempt for Ordinary Americans.  [W]hy do we care where Queen Nancy gets her hair done? — The answer to that is simple, isn't it?  It's because she has been one of the loudest Democrat voices over the last six months lecturing the little people of America to stay locked up in their homes and only venture out when wearing a mask.  She's been one of the most ardent fans of the lockdowns mandated by despicable Democrat governors like her step-nephew Gavin Newsom, putting millions of little people out of work and shuttering hundreds of thousands of businesses.  Even worse than her act of intentionally violating nephew Gavin's lockdown/mask orders on Sunday by intimidating a single mother salon owner to open her shuttered business just for her decrepit, stringy mane was Queen Nancy's response to getting caught.  She couldn't lower herself to do the simple thing:  To admit her wrongdoing and ask to be forgiven.  Instead, she haughtily claimed at a press conference to having been "set up" and demanded that the salon owner she had intimidated apologize to her.

Nancy Pelosi's trip to the hair salon did not end well.  Nancy Pelosi had a Marie Antoinette moment this week in San Francisco.  Despite the fact that hair salons are shuttered due to California's lockdown on businesses, Madame Speaker ventured out for a shampoo and blowout at a local salon.  It must have come as quite a surprise to find herself on a video shown by a cable news network as she walked from one area of the establishment to another with wet hair and wearing a non-descript salon smock.  A security camera caught it and Fox News obtained the video.  Tuesday [9/1/2020] the cable network ran it as an exclusive story.

Rules are For Proles — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Defies COVID Rules, Privately Visits Hair Salon.  Comrades, those who create the COVID rules will never actually comply with the COVID rules; the reason:  they know the COVID rules are about control, not a virus.  Today House Speaker Nancy Pelosi visits a hair salon:  "owner Erica Kious said that Pelosi had an appointment with a stylist who rents space in the Union Street salon.  []It was a slap in the face that she went in, you know, that she feels that she can just go and get her stuff done while no one else can go in, and I can't work," Kious reportedly said about Pelosi.

Democrats won't live by the pandemic standards they force on everyone else.  The public has been subjected to coronavirus lockdowns of varying degrees for over five months and counting, but prominent Democrats have decided that they should be exempt from the restrictions everyone else must abide by.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi openly flouted these restrictions recently when she got her hair coiffed at a San Francisco salon that remains closed to the public.  Local ordinances only allow for outdoor services, and Pelosi was captured on security video not wearing a mask.  Despite the evidence, her spokesman declared that the speaker "always wears a mask and complies with local COVID requirements."  Pelosi's not the only one.  New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has repeatedly been caught not wearing a mask despite his incessant demands that everyone else do so.

Pelosi says salon owes her an apology for 'setup'.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called her appointment at a local salon a "setup" after critics accused her of violating a San Francisco ordinance to get her hair done.  Addressing reporters on Wednesday, the California Democrat fired back at those accusing her of hypocritically shaming others for not wearing medical masks after video showed her walking through a salon without a mask.

Salon Owner Now Targeted by Nancy Pelosi Hate Mob.  Salon Owner Erica Kious denies Nancy Pelosi's claim that she was set up after video surfaces of the House speaker's maskless visit.  Additionally, Kious outlines the hatred now being directed toward her by the extreme leftists within the San Francisco community.  [Video clip]

Pelosi's hair-pocrisy reflects Dems' hypocrisy.  It's hard not to relish in the schadenfreude of Nancy Pelosi being caught on security camera, with wet hair, bare feet and no mask, indulging in an illicit private hair-salon experience in San Francisco.  She violated coronavirus health rules by the city, which has ordered salons shut since March.  The day after her Monday visit, they were allowed to open, for outdoor services only, but no blowouts, and masks are mandatory.  So, Speaker Pelosi violated at least three rules.  But such is her sense of entitlement that she refuses to apologize, and on Wednesday she blamed the hard-pressed workers who serviced her tresses, claiming they told her the appointment she requested was kosher.  What happened to "No one is above the law?"

Politico Reporter Questions Legality Of Posting Security Footage Of Pelosi, Citing California As 'Two-Party Consent' State.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi got caught red-handed being a typical Democrat — do what I say, not what I do.  The California Democrat has long demanded a full shutdown of everything (she'll be fine — she's got a $25,000 freezer stuffed with $16 pints of ice cream), and she has called for a nationwide mandate that all Americans wear masks.  But then she was seen in security footage popping over to a hair salon to get a blowout — and she wasn't wearing a mask (of course).  The story exploded across the internet, with most having the same view — what a hypocrite.

Bias alert:  This article comes from CNN. Notice the gentle reproof mixed with hagiography.
Nancy Pelosi just handed Trump a campaign gift.  Nancy Pelosi is one of the — if not the — smartest political strategists in the Democratic Party.  As such, she knows that appearances matter in politics.  A lot.  Which is why her decision to have her hair done indoors at a shop in San Francisco makes so little sense.  In security footage obtained by Fox News, Pelosi is shown inside the salon without a mask.  Fox also reported that the owner of the salon, Erica Kious, was angry that Pelosi had been allowed to violate the rules put in place during the coronavirus pandemic that mandates haircuts can only be given outside.  Kious said it was "a slap in the face that she went in, you know, that she feels that she can just go and get her stuff done while no one else can go in, and I can't work."

Pelosi says she was 'set up' by San Francisco salon.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she was "set up" during her recent salon trip, which has sparked a wave of backlash from Republicans.  "I take responsibility for taking the word of a neighborhood salon that I've been to many times.  They said they were able to accommodate one person at a time... I trusted that," Mrs. Pelosi said.  "It turns out, it was a set up.  So I take responsibility for falling for a set up."  "I think this salon owes me an apology for setting [me] up," she added.

San Francisco Salon Owner Says Nancy Pelosi Broke Lockdown Order For Blowout.  A San Francisco salon owner says House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) violated the city's coronavirus lockdown order to get her hair done.  Security footage taken from the small business and provided to Fox News appears to confirm the salon owner's allegation, showing the leading House Democrat with wet hair and no mask walking through the shop on Monday.  Hair salons across the city were allowed to open for outdoor services only on Monday for the first time since March.  "It was a slap in the face that she went in, you know, that she feels that she can just go and get her stuff done while no one else can go in, and I can't work," Erica Kious, owner of eSalon, told Fox News.

Pelosi Admits Breaking Lockdown For Salon Visit; Blames Business, Says She Did Nothing Wrong.  On Tuesday [9/1/2020], House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) released a statement via her deputy chief of staff confessing to breaking city lockdown rules to get her hair done indoors at a San Francisco salon on Monday, seemingly without wearing a mask.  Pelosi, however, is not admitting to any wrongdoing, instead shifting blame to the salon she visited.  "The Speaker always wears a mask and complies with local COVID requirements," said a statement from Pelosi's deputy chief of staff Drew Hammill, according to FOX KTVU.  "This business offered for the Speaker to come in on Monday and told her they were allowed by the city to have one customer at a time in the business," Hammill added.  "The Speaker complied with the rules as presented to her by this establishment."

The rules apply to you, not to her.
Pelosi used shuttered San Francisco hair salon for blow-out, owner calls it 'slap in the face'.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited a San Francisco hair salon on Monday afternoon for a wash and blow-out, despite local ordinances keeping salons closed amid the coronavirus pandemic, Fox News has learned.  In security footage obtained by Fox News, and timestamped Monday at 3:08 p.m. Pacific Time, the California powerhouse is seen walking through eSalon in San Francisco with wet hair, and without a mask over her mouth or nose.  The stylist doing her hair can be seen following her wearing a black face mask.  Salons in San Francisco had been closed since March and were only notified they could reopen on Sept. 1 for outdoor hairstyling services only.

Trump Campaign Requests 'Written Confirmation' Basement Biden Will Participate in Presidential Debates.  President Trump's campaign is requesting "written confirmation" that Joe Biden (D) will participate in the three in-person presidential debates this fall following last week's remark from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who told reporters that there should not be any debates between the two.  The Speaker became the latest high profile Democrat to discourage Biden from participating in the upcoming presidential debates, predicting them to be nothing more than an "exercise in skullduggery."  "I wouldn't legitimize a conversation with him nor a debate in terms of the presidency of the United States," she said.

Rep Jim Banks Calls On Pelosi To Condemn Attacks On Rand Paul After She Called GOP Lawmakers 'Enemies Of The State".  Republican Indiana Rep. Jim Banks called on Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Friday to condemn attacks against guests to the Republican National Convention.  Banks spoke out Friday [8/28/2020] after protestors harassed Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and swarmed around Republican Florida Rep. Brian Mast in Washington, D.C. following the fourth night of the RNC where President Donald Trump spoke from the White House.

Now Republicans are Enemies of the State.  [Scroll down]  We could shrug off Pelosi's use of the words "enemies of the state" as hyperbole.  But there's a concept behind those words and actual law.  Is Pelosi really being sloppy with language?  The speaker hasn't just spent most of her adult life in politics; she grew up in it.  Her father, Thomas D'Alesandro, Jr., was a Baltimore congressman and mayor.  Her brother, Tommy D'Alesandro III, was Baltimore mayor, too.  No passes for Pelosi.  When Pelosi refers to enemies of the state, she's alluding to subversion, "the attempt to weaken or destroy a political system or a government."  If we follow Pelosi's thread, Republicans who oppose mail-in balloting ploys are subversives.  What punishments will be meted out to Republicans should Democrats claim the presidency?  Or even if they don't?  Because we know that Democrats can be awfully punitive without the executive power.  There's law defining an "enemy of the United States."  It's reasonably specific.  But so what?  Democrat-appointed judges have a knack for creatively interpreting law.

'I Don't Think There Should Be Any Debates:' Nancy Pelosi Says Biden Should Not 'Legitimize' Trump.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) said on Thursday [8/27/2020] that Joe Biden should not participate in debates with President Trump during the general election campaign.  "Don't tell anybody I told you this, especially don't tell Joe Biden:  I don't think there should be any debates," Pelosi told reporters at a press conference.  "I do not think that the president of the United States has comported himself in a way that has any association with truth, evidence, data, and facts.  I wouldn't legitimize a conversation with him, nor a debate in terms of the presidency of the United States."

The Editor says...
Ms. Pelosi doesn't want Biden to debate Trump (or even submit to a moderately friendly interview on Fox News Sunday) because Joe Biden will make a fool of himself if he speaks extemporaneously on live TV.

Nancy Pelosi:  "I Don't Think That There Should Be Any Debates.  You knew this was going to happen.  Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters on Thursday morning, "I don't think there should be any debates."  Then she added, "I wouldn't legitimize a conversation with him."  Anyone paying attention knew this was coming.  There is no way [...] senile Joe Biden can stand in a debate with President Donald Trump.

And the Acting President is Nancy Pelosi.  As you know, President Trump has said that "there was a mad theory" that if the election results are not known by January 20, then Nancy Pelosi would be President.  As usually, the MSM has labeled this as false or misleading.  It is, of course, correct — mostly.  Let's start with what happens if the Electoral College cannot certify presidential election results by January 20 and let's use the Congressional Research Service (a part of the Library of Congress) as our source: [...] Let's be clear on the main point which is that if Electoral College has not certified a new president by January 20, 2021, there will be an Acting President.  It will either be the Speaker of the House or President pro tempore of the Senate.  It will not be Donald Trump ... period.

Nancy Pelosi Goes On Deranged Rant, Labels Republicans 'Enemies of the State'.  Nancy Pelosi is not well.  That's the impression any normal person would get watching her over the last several months.  As the possible re-election of Donald Trump has grown closer, she's become more and more unhinged (see Nancy Pelosi Has a Mental Breakdown On Camera, Starts Yelling 'No' At Reporter Over and Over). And it's not just the words she says.  It's also her mannerisms, her stumbling over her words, and the constant need to suck on her own teeth, as if they are always just seconds from exiting her mouth.  This is not a woman who should still hold a position of power are the age of 80.  Today [8/24/2020], she once again upped the toxicity of the rhetoric in a wild rant where she labeled Republicans "enemies of the state" and "domestic enemies to our voting system."

Insure The Domestic Tranquility? — Nancy Pelosi Calls President Trump, Republicans and Trump Supporters:  "Enemies of The State".  According to the Preamble of our Constitution, one of the purposes for establishing our Constitutional Republic was to insure domestic tranquility: [...] The dictionary defines Tranquility as a peaceful, calm state, without noise, violence, worry, etc.  It is only late August 2020 and there must be a certain level of desperation in the background of the Democrat party because the rhetoric and promotion of violence is off-the-charts.  At the same time as violent democrats and their various funded and affiliated grassroot anarchist groups are engaged in riots, looting, mayhem and political chaos, the United States Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, goes to the microphones to declare President Trump and his supporters:  "Enemies of The State."

Here's why progressives are furious over Nancy Pelosi's endorsement of Joe Kennedy.  Just as the Democratic Party is seeking to solidify its diverse base around the candidacy of former vice president Joe Biden this week at an all-virtual Democratic convention, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's endorsement of Representative Joseph P. Kennedy III in Massachusetts' Senate Democratic primary race is reopening old wounds.  After Pelosi announced Thursday that she would endorse Kennedy over incumbent Senator Edward J. Markey, a number of progressives took to Twitter to denounce the move on the grounds that the Democratic Party establishment has effectively blacklisted other candidates and organizations for doing the very thing Kennedy is doing:  Mounting a primary challenge against an incumbent Democrat.

President Pelosi?  President Trump's warning to a conservative gathering that before this election is resolved the person who could next emerge as President is Nancy Pelosi, well, it's a startling point.  It's not entirely idle, though.  The Constitution, and legislation it grants the Congress the power to pass, both envision a situation where the Speaker could automatically become president at 12:01 p.m. o'clock on January 20.  Neither Mr. Trump, as we understand him, nor we are saying such an event is likely.  Just possible.  Were it to come to pass, though, it would be completely — to the degree that there is such a constitutional concept — kosher.  That's because of the 20th Amendment.  It says that the "terms of the President and Vice President shall end at noon on the 20th day of January," no ifs, ands, or buts.  It also says that the terms of the Senators and Congressmen end at noon on January 3.  That means the 116th Congress ends and the 117th begins 17 days before Mr. Trump's term is up.

Pelosi: Republican Party Has Been 'Highjacked' by Trump's 'Cult'.  Tuesday [8/18/2020] on MSNBC, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said the Republican Party has been "highjacked" by a "cult-like group of people and others who are afraid of defying the cult leader," who she said was President Donald Trump.

Coronavirus is a long-lasting, all-purpose crisis, and the perfect excuse for all kinds of legislative mischief.
Pelosi calls members back to Capitol Hill to consider USPS legislation, calls post office 'Election Central' amid coronavirus.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi suggested members could be brought back from August recess to address issues regarding the U.S. Postal Service, while urging Democrats to appear at their local post offices amid the battle to protect mail-in ballots for the 2020 presidential election.  Pelosi, D-Calif., on Sunday said the post office has become "Election Central" due to the coronavirus pandemic even as President Trump and Republicans have warned for months that universal mail-in ballots would cause widespread voter fraud in the election.

Is she clueless or just mendacious?
Pelosi Falsely Claims That 'Social Security Benefits' Are Delivered by Post Office Mail.  In a letter to her Democratic colleagues in Congress about President Trump's alleged manipulation of the U.S. Postal Service, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) falsely claims that "Social Security benefits" are delivered by mail.  This is not true because, as the Social Security Administration states in its own literature, "If you get Social Security benefits, you must receive your payments electronically."

Nancy Pelosi, House Dems mull early return from break to address USPS.  Members of the House are reportedly considering rushing back from their August break to address the Trump administration's handling of the U.S. Postal Service.  Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her Democratic colleagues are discussing a possible return to Washington within the next two weeks, sources told Politico.  The Chamber had originally planned to stay in recess until mid-September.

Must be nice to take a month-long paid vacation in the middle of the summer.

Now a word from one of America's foremost pro-abortion politicians:
Pelosi on Coronavirus Relief: 'Everything I Do Is About the Children'.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Thursday discussed the stalled economic relief talks in Congress.  Pelosi said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" [8/13/2020 (?)] that President Donald Trump has stood in the Democrats' way as they want to have vote-by-mail and safely reopen schools in the fall.  She added that everything she does "is about the children," and she has "advice" for children, "whether they want it or not."

President Donald Trump: 'Obstructionist' Nancy Pelosi 'Wasn't Interested' in Helping People in Need.  President Donald Trump told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview on Monday afternoon in the Oval Office that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer are "obstructionists" who were not "interested" in helping people in need.  Asked to open the nearly 30-minute interview why he needed to continue coronavirus economic recovery aid via executive order instead of through legislation passed by Congress, Trump told Breitbart News that it is because "we have obstructionists on the other side."

Trump boxes Democrats into a corner on help for the unemployed.  President Trump has given the Democrats a surprise thrashing, hoisting them on their own petard over stimulus payments in what must be the legislative jiujitsu of the year. [...] They had their chance to pass a stimulus bill that would have helped the unemployed, but for them, first-things-first:  They held that package hostage to the all-important need, for them, of bailing out mismanaged blue Democrat cites and their unions.  The little guy's $400 weekly unemployment check booster would have to wait.  Plus, multi-milionaire Pelosi pooh-poohed those checks as "an illusion" same as she did the news that workers were getting $1,000 raises during the Trump boom years, calling those "crumbs."

Pelosi claims PBS' Woodruff acting like GOP 'advocate' when pushed on unspent pandemic relief.  Speaker Nancy Pelosi was so displeased this week with PBS' Judy Woodruff that she accused the journalist of serving as an "advocate" for the Republican Party.  The California Democrat became visibly frustrated during a "One on One" interview Tuesday in which Ms. Woodruff asked why Democrats couldn't seem to find a principled compromise with Republicans on another round of coronavirus relief.  "Democrats want more money, Republicans want a lot less," Ms. Woodruff said.  "They are saying they're willing to show flexibility, and they're also saying a lot of the money that was passed in the Spring, Madam Speaker, has not even been spent yet."

PBS Challenged Speaker Pelosi Over Coronavirus Relief; A Meltdown Ensued.  Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi must have thought she was going to have an easy interview with PBS News Hour's Judy Woodruff.  This is PBS. They're supposed to be on our side, right?  There's talk of another coronavirus stimulus dominating the Hill.  The August recess has been put on hold until an agreement is hashed out.  Pelosi said there will be a compromise, but Woodruff's line-by-line questioning on where common ground could be found was met with frustration from the top Democrat.  Actually, it was something of a meltdown, with Pelosi accusing Woodruff of shilling for Republicans.  It was quite entertaining.  Woodruff responded by saying she was just playing devil's advocates, noting that the GOP had offered to extend unemployment benefits, that they too have monies allocated for schools and food programs, and that money passed in the spring during the first string of coronavirus relief bills has yet to be spent.

Nancy Pelosi Stands with Anti-Semites.  Last Wednesday [7/29/2020], Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi endorsed Rep. Rashida Tlaib in her August 4 Michigan Democratic primary rematch with Detroit City Council President Brenda Jones, whom Tlaib narrowly defeated in 2018.  Similarly, for the August 11 Minnesota primary, Pelosi endorsed another of Congress' three Israel-boycotters, Rep. Ilhan Omar, who has been enthusiastically praised by David Duke, and was voted 2019 Antisemite of the Year in a poll by  What is Pelosi's motivation in supporting them?  Is it identity politics?  In Omar's race, Pelosi had the option of endorsing her progressive African-American opponent, who opposes the Boycott-Divest-Sanction (BDS) campaign to isolate and destroy Israel.  In Tlaib's race, where opponent Brenda Jones is a staunch ally of Rev. Louis Farrakhan, Pelosi had the option of staying neutral.

Sit down, Nancy:  Pelosi doubles down while Birx forcefully pushes backGood for her.  A Sunday morning [8/2/2020] political show gave Dr. Birx a chance to respond to Speaker Pelosi's snide remarks about her as she was interviewed on CNN.  She was asked about Pelosi's criticism of her during a private meeting with White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchen on Friday night.  Birx delivered an unequivocal response.  Pelosi's remarks against Birx were leaked to the press, of course, and it seems that her vitriol toward Birx came from a New York Times article in July. [...] She predicted that the virus would rise dramatically but then peak and begin to decline.  No one from the NYT bothered to interview Dr. Birx before publishing the hit piece, by the way.  When the coronavirus moved aggressively to southern states, her prediction was proven to have been overly optimistic.

Don't Lecture Me.  We are indeed fortunate to have these liberals with us to enlighten us and show us the error of our unsophisticated, primitive thinking.  It's always such a pleasure to be lectured to by hypocritical liberals like Nancy Pelosi with her $24,000 refrigerator and $12/pint ice cream, living behind her security gates and consuming more energy than [who]-knows-what.  Or by Democrats like Al Gore and Barbara Streisand or just by 'regular' well-heeled Democrats who live in large houses, alone or just two people, in a 9- or 10-room 3000 sq ft+ home with a big screen TV in every room, central AC and a big, honkin' SUV or luxury car in the three-car garage.  This after watching them embark on a lifelong pursuit of monetary wealth and material possessions/snooty fashion.  Capitalism, tax breaks and profits for them, thank you, but socialism, spread-the-wealth, and high taxes for us detestable conservatives.

President Trump's Handling of The Virus Was Not a Failure.  Do facts matter anymore?  Has such intense and unabashed hatred of President Donald Trump caused Democrat leaders to lose any semblance of sanity and let slip all grasp of reality, or are they fully aware of their mendacity, to promulgate a false political narrative about the president's handling of the virus in order to fool the American people into voting Trump out of office in November?  On June 30th, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi proclaimed Trump's handling of the virus to be a complete failure at a press conference:  "Safety is first, and people have families at home that they have to go home to, and they don't want to carry somebody else's virus there... We are at a place now that we don't have to be.  This is a president who doesn't want to wear a mask, who again called the virus a hoax... science says, wear a mask, test, trace, keep your distance.  The president doesn't support any of that.  He has events that are counter to that...this is a matter of life and death, and this administration has failed miserably."

The Editor says...
Ms. Pelosi says "safety is first."  I disagree.  Freedom and liberty are first.  Safety is way down the list.  If the government circulates money, delivers the mail, defends the border, and enforces the law and the Constitution, We the People — at least those of us who have been properly educated — can take care of our own safety.

Cruz: Pelosi Wants to Shovel Cash to Her Friends, Shut Down America.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-Calif.) $3 trillion coronavirus relief bill, the Heroes Act, is "just shoveling money to her friends and not actually solving the problem," and it includes "a big tax cut for millionaires and billionaires in blue states, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) told CBS's "Face the Nation" on Sunday [7/26/2020].  Cruz said he's still not on board with a bill that the GOP plans to introduce on Monday to provide another round of coronavirus relief.

Pelosi Falsely Suggests She Never Called Federal Officers 'Stormtroopers', Appears To Mock Barr's Weight.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) falsely suggested during an interview on Tuesday afternoon that she never called federal law enforcement officials "stormtroopers" and claimed that she said that they "acted like stormtroopers," which is not what she said.  Pelosi appeared on MSNBC's "The Beat" with host Ari Melber where she was asked about the following exchange from Attorney General William Barr's testimony in front of Congress today [7/28/2020].

'No, No.  No!' Nancy Pelosi has hostile tantrum, yells at reporter.  With Congress about to take up a new pandemic relief package, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is back in the limelight, as she can control the destiny of any such effort in the lower chamber.  And as usual, the frail 80-year-old Democrat is throwing around her considerable weight as speaker to dictate the outcome, even bullying reporters who dare question the process — then again, Pelosi is accustomed to a docile press corp.  At a press briefing Monday, Pelosi had a full scale meltdown when a reporter tried to ask her if she was willing to support a short-term extension of unemployment benefits while lawmakers work on a broader coronavirus relief package.

The distraught and desperate Democrats are flailing.  The left loves the vocabulary of the Third Reich.  Nancy Pelosi, who was horrified whenever Trump called COVID-19 the Wuhan virus, now calls it the "Trump virus."  No verbal assault is too low for leftists.  As usual, the Democrats make the mistake of assuming that Trump-supporters are rather stupid, easily manipulated by their mono-minded media and sound bites.  They don't seem to grasp the fact that much of America is laughing at them for their misplaced arrogance and crying for the residents of those cities being destroyed by leftist officials and the well organized, well funded anarchist groups that have turned them into war zones.  What's their plan?  To discredit the outcome of the election before it takes place.  Every Democrat who appears on a cable or network news program as well as every radical on CNN and MSNBC has received his talking points:  Trump will refuse to leave the W.H. if he loses, he will use the military one way or another, he will commit voter fraud, etc.  These are all things leftists actually do.

Nancy Pelosi Has a Mental Breakdown on Camera, Starts Yelling 'No' at Reporter Over and Over.  Nancy Pelosi is not well.  The more I watch her on camera, the more I'm convinced of that.  Whether it's her incessant sucking on her teeth, the weird slurring of her words she often slips into, or instances like I'm about to share, this is a person who's mentally not capable of doing her job anymore.  Today [7/24/2020], Pelosi lost it when a reporter asked her about not trying to play social justice warrior with the latest coronavirus relief package.  [Video clip]

DHS Secretary Chad Wolf Blasts Nancy Pelosi After She Compares Federal Agents to Nazis.  Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf blasted Democrats and Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday Morning Futures this morning [7/26/2020].  Leftist terrorists and Marxist thugs have looted businesses and destroyed property in cities across the US for nearly two months now.  Instead of condemning the leftist rioting and violence Speaker Pelosi blamed law enforcement and compared federal agents to Nazi stormtroopers.

DHS chief slams Pelosi for calling federal law enforcement 'stormtroopers'.  Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf on Friday slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for what he called "dangerous" comments after the California Democrat dubbed federal law enforcement protecting federal property in Portland "stormtroopers."  "One, it's disgusting, two it's an assault on every federal or civilian or state and local law enforcement officer who has taken an oath to protect their communities, to protect, in our case, federal facilities, to do their jobs and I think it's very very dangerous," Wolf said on Fox News' "America's Newsroom."

Ken Cuccinelli:  Federal Agents Could Sue Pelosi for Libel — 'Speaker of the House Knows That She's Using Nazi Allusions'.  Friday [7/24/2020], during an interview that aired on Fox News Channel's "The Ingraham Angle," acting Department of Homeland Security Deputy Secretary Ken Cuccinelli weighed in on the civil unrest plaguing several American cities.  Guest host Lisa Boothe asked Cuccinelli why those cities should not have to deal with the consequences given that the elected leadership in those cities was allowing it to happen.  He also argued House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) should be held accountable for her "libelous" statements regarding the agents of the entities involved in the effort to protect federal government property.

Democrats Have Completely Abandoned Civility.  On July 20, Nancy Pelosi said that if President Trump refuses to accept the results of the November election, he will have to be "fumigated" out of the White House.  Fumigation is a technique used against insects, and the idea that human beings are insects has a long history in totalitarian discourse.  Hitler described Jews as "vermin" and "parasites," a form of dehumanization that is always just one step away from physical violence.  Speaker Pelosi should apologize immediately, and profusely, for her use of this inappropriate rhetoric.

Pelosi: 'Trump Virus' Is 'Rolling Like a Freight Train' — 'Biggest Failure' in History.  Thursday [7/23/2020] on MSNBC's "The ReidOut," House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) called President Donald Trump "the biggest failure in the history of our country."  She said "the Trump virus" was rolling like "a freight train through the country."

The Editor says...
The Chinese virus is no longer affecting any significant number of Americans.  Ms. Pelosi likes to harp about the number of people who test positive for the Chinese virus, but most of those people have no symptoms, so her one-dimensional statistics are meaningless.

How rude!  Imagine if Trump had said that about Obama.
Pelosi Says Trump May Have to be "Fumigated" Out of the White House.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Sunday said President Trump may have to be "fumigated" out of the White House.  The Democrat-media complex exploded this weekend after President Trump refused to commit to the election results if he loses in November.

Pelosi Says She 'Yearns' for Other Republican Presidents.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is so fed up with President Trump that she said she actually "yearns" for other Republican presidents.  "I yearn for other Republican presidents," she said at her press conference on Thursday.  "While we may disagree on many points, at least we had a shared commitment to the governance of our country."

The Editor says...
In other words, Nancy Pelosi would get along quite well with a deep state uni-party "reach across the aisle" centrist RINO in the White House.

Why Does Nancy Care about Portland?  The question is, do Democratic leaders believe that the riots help them win in November?  Or are they afraid of losing control of the party if they don't go along with the crazies?  I've decided that it's the latter.  The Democratic party is being taken over by the woke left and the old generation of leaders is desperately trying to stay in control for one last cycle.  Probably they will fail and be thrown out after the 2020 election, especially if Trump wins.  Remember back in 2018 when Genius Pelosi got a whole class of moderate Democrats elected to the House?  Wasn't she smart?  All those suburban women electing moderates to Congress, and Nancy got to be Speaker again.  Only, it is now clear, Nancy Pelosi isn't really in charge.  She is running desperately after the woke mob trying not to lose control of the Democratic caucus completely.

Replacing Pelosi with someone even worse:
'Pelosi Must Go': Speaker Blasted From The Left Over 'Corporate Interests'.  Even Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is not safe from the "cancelation" mobs, it turns out, as she discovered this weekend when she became the target of a progressive effort to oust her from her long-held seat in the House of Representatives.  Pelosi is the target of an attack from the left and will face Shahid Buttar in the general election in November.  Buttar is, like many left-leaning insurgent candidates, a Democratic socialist with, as Townhall notes, a resume of progressive bona fides, including several trips to Burning Man, and plenty of "socially conscious music" and poetry available for free on SoundCloud.  He is also an immigrant and a Muslim and wears his hair in a "man-bun."

She's wasting everyone's time, as usual.
After Stone Commutation, Pelosi Planning Bill To Limit Presidential Pardons.  After President Donald Trump commuted the sentence of former adviser Roger Stone, Democrats went apoplectic.  On Saturday [7/11/2020], House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said she would support a bill that would limit a president's pardoning abilities.  Stone had been sentenced to three years in prison for witness tampering and lying to Congress.  He was also arrested in an infamous early morning bust with multiple armed police raiding the 67-year-old's home as CNN filmed.  After commuting Stone's sentence, the White House released a statement calling the former adviser "a victim of the Russia Hoax."

Obama Granted Clemency to Terrorists and Traitors, But Democrats Are Angry About Roger Stone.  Soon after it was announced that President Trump had commuted the prison sentence of Roger Stone, the outrage mob mobilized.  Nancy Pelosi went on CNN to suggest that a law should be passed limiting the president's clemency powers.  "There ought to be a law, and I'm recommending we pass a law that presidents cannot issue a pardon if the crime that the person is in jail for is one that is caused by protecting the president, which this was.  It's appalling," she told CNN's Anderson Cooper. [...] But, these same people who pounced on Trump's acts of clemency yawned and looked the other when Barack Obama commuted the sentence of terrorists and traitors.

Pelosi Wants to Ignore the Constitution and Control Who President Can Pardon.  The left is melting down over President Donald Trump commuting the sentence of Roger Stone.  But the same people who suggest that that's somehow not in accordance with law and order are the same people who helped perpetrate and spread the Russia collusion hoax for three years, that went after people like Stone for "collusion" that didn't exist.  They're the same people who have no problem with the DNC and the Clinton team acquiring Russian disinformation through Christopher Steele to undermine Trump.  A British court just dropped more evidence of that.  Did any of the media besides Catherine Herridge cover it?  Not that I can see.  Are any of the Democrats called to account or even asked about it?  Nope.  It's completely within the power of the president to pardon or commute the sentence of any federal prisoner.  It's part of his basic constitutional power under Article II, Section 2.

Nancy Pelosi: 'A Trillion for What, Dear?".  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) said in her press briefing on Thursday that "a trillion dollars" is "an interesting starting point" to talk about another spending bill, but indicated that she wants more than that.  "What doesn't measure up is: 'Oh, it can only be a trillion dollars,'" Pelosi said.  "No, we need a trillion dollars for state and local," she said.  "We need another trillion dollars, another trillion dollars for Unemployment Insurance and direct payments.  Something like that, but probably not as much for the testing, tracing, treatment, etcetera.  "So, a trillion dollars is:  Okay, that is an interesting starting point, but it doesn't come anywhere near," she said.

Pelosi on Christopher Columbus Statue Torn Down by Mob: 'People Will Do What They Do'.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) responded to the Christopher Columbus statue that was torn down by a mob on the Fourth of July by saying Thursday, "People will do what they do."  In a Capitol Hill press conference on Thursday [7/9/2020], a reporter asked Pelosi about the removal of the statue, saying, "Shouldn't that be done by a commission or the city council, not a mob in the middle of the night throwing it into the harbor?"  Pelosi shrugged her shoulders and said, "People will do what they do.  I do think that from a safety standpoint it would be a good idea to have it taken down if the community doesn't want it."

Pelosi on Columbus monument removal: 'Well, I don't even have my grandmother's earrings'.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi gave a bizarre and convoluted answer to a question regarding her feelings over the removal of statues and monuments to historical American figures, saying she doesn't "even have my grandmother's earrings."  "In Baltimore, in Little Italy, the statue of Christopher Columbus was removed or taken down.  And I wonder if you have anything to share about that?" a reporter asked.  "Well, I don't even have my grandmother's earrings," Pelosi, a California Democrat, said in response during a press conference.

Maryland Governor Blasts Pelosi's Indifference to Baltimore Vandalism.  Maryland governor Larry Hogan (R.) on Thursday said Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) has "lost touch" with her childhood city of Baltimore after she expressed indifference about the toppling of a statue of Christopher Columbus.  "It's disappointing that Speaker Pelosi has lost touch with the Baltimore community that her family served," Hogan wrote on Twitter.  "While efforts towards peaceful change are welcome, there is no place in Maryland for lawlessness, vandalism, and destruction of public property."

Nancy Pelosi: 'Our Caucus... is More Than 60 Percent Women, People of Color and LGBTQ'.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) on Monday [7/6/2020] joined with Democratic Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries (D.-N.Y.) and Caucus Procedures Chair Grace Meng (D.-N.Y.) in issuing a statement about the Democratic Caucus' new "Diversity Rule."  "House Democrats take great pride in the beautiful diversity of our Caucus, which is more than 60 percent women, people of color and LGBTQ," said Pelosi, Jeffries and Meng said in the statement.  "One of our Caucus's top priorities has long been to promote diversity at every level of Congress, so that these halls better reflect the dynamism and vibrancy of the American people whom we are privileged to represent," they said.

The Editor says...
Apparently Ms. Pelosi thinks white men are not dynamic or vibrant enough to serve as elected representatives.  What's the difference between that and bigotry?

Company Connected to Pelosi's Husband Scored Coronavirus Bailout.  A company connected to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-CA) husband received a loan from the Trump administration's $669 billion Paycheck Protection Program, a Small Business Administration-led fund designed to provide financial relief to businesses in the wake of the Chinese coronavirus pandemic.

Nancy Pelosi's husband among lawmaker linked PPP loan recipients.  A firm partially owned by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband was among the lawmaker-linked businesses that got Paycheck Protection Program loans, according to data released Monday [7/6/2020].  Companies owned by or associated with Reps.  Mike Kelly (R-Pa), Kevin Hern (R-Okla.), Markwayne Mullin (R-Okla.) and Rick Allen (R-Ga.) also received the coronavirus loans.  Businesses linked to Reps.  Roger Williams (R-Texas), Vicky Hartzler (R-Mo.), Susie Lee (D-Nev.) and Debbie Mucarsel Powell (D-Fla.) previously reported they got loans.  Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill said that her husband Paul Pelosi is "a minor, passive investor in this company.  He was not involved in or even aware of this PPP loan."

Petition to 'Impeach Nancy Pelosi for Treason' Nears 400,000 Signatures.  A White House petition to "impeach Nancy Pelosi for crimes of treason" has received a monstrous 400,000 signatures after going viral.  The "We the People" petition, hosted on the official White House website, was started last year by Marjorie Taylor Greene, a patriotic citizen from Georgia.  Taylor's campaign accuses the Democratic House speaker of committing treason and calls for her impeachment.  The petition appears to have struck a chord with many Americans who have been left frustrated by the Democratic Party's ongoing attempts to undermine and disrupt President Donald Trump's presidency.

Pelosi Blames GOP for Russian Annexation of Crimea During Obama Admin.  Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) on Wednesday blamed Russia's annexation of Crimea on Republicans, though the invasion took place on President Barack Obama's watch.  Pelosi slammed President Donald Trump and Republicans for their alleged inability to face Russian aggression — and tied them to President Barack Obama's appeasement of Moscow.  "You just described, not only for the president, but the Republicans in Congress, dereliction of duty," Pelosi told MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace.

Nancy Pelosi Says Every American Should Be Forced to "Wear The Mask".  Nancy Pelosi says today that every American should be forced to wear face masks.  However, proving that her position is purely a political division strategy, notice how she is not asked about passing a law that demands it then.  The reasoning is simple.  First, Pelosi knows a law forcing Americans to wear a mask would never pass; and even if it did it would be an unconstitutional, and unenforceable demand.  Second, Pelosi would never attempt such a bill because it would put Democrats in a minority position; Americans do not support such nonsense.  Third there is no factual evidence showing face masks prevent COVID-19 spread; even the boxes of masks specifically state: "will not provide any protection against COVID-19."  Instead, by playing the politics of COVID Pelosi presents the nonsensical face mask issue as a political virtue-signal.  [Video clip]

ABC Clinton Lackey Refuses to Call-Out Pelosi's Crazy Conspiracy Theories.  If President Trump had said the things Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has been saying over the past week without evidence, the liberal media would be questioning his sanity and fitness for office.  But since she currently leads their party, she's above reproach.  Sunday's [6/28/2020] This Week was no exception as ABC chief anchor and resident Clinton lackey, George Stephanopoulos refused two critically press the Speaker on her claim that the Republican Party had killed George Floyd, and that the President was a Russian agent.

Why does Nancy Pelosi want to name her police reform bill after a late black comedian?  Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced on Friday that the police reform legislation that passed in the House almost entirely along party lines the day before would be named for comedian George Kirby. [...] OK, the joke here — which is on Pelosi — is that the person she is actually referring to is George Floyd, a man whose name has been plastered all over the news for the last month.  How perfectly rich that in presenting a bill meant to preserve his memory, she's already forgotten his name.  She also forgets the name of the Congressional Black Caucus, pausing uncomfortably long to wait for the cobwebs to clear.

Pelosi Spreads Dangerous Misinformation, Claims President Trump Urging People to "Inject Lysol and Drink Bleach".  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday spread dangerous misinformation and claimed President Trump is urging people to "inject Lysol and drink bleach."  President Trump in April during a presser was referring to discussions of testing ultraviolet light on patients and possibly using the light inside the body. [...] So Pelosi once again twisted President Trump's words and took him out of context.  "Trump and Republicans still don't have a plan — unless you count trying to destroy our health care in the courts while urging us to inject Lysol and drink bleach."  Pelosi's team tweeted on Wednesday in response to the Trump Administration's efforts in the courts to dismantle Obamacare.

Erasing the Past Leaves only the Present.  This past week, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi ordered that the official portraits of four of her predecessors be removed from the Capitol walls.  This grandiose display of virtue signaling occurred, she said, "because we must lead by example."  Example of what? [...] Speaker Pelosi really should think through why she wants to expunge the hallowed halls of "violent bigotry and grotesque racism".  The history of the Democratic Party is a chronicle of violent bigotry and grotesque racism.  The Republican Party was founded in the 1850s primarily in opposition to the pro-slavery policies of the Democratic Party.  The Confederacy, at which Madame Speaker rails so roundly, was the Democratic Party.  In 1860, Abraham Lincoln was elected as the first Republican President with a Republican Congress.  The slave holding Democrats were so incensed that abolitionist Republicans were in control that, in a monumental act of sedition, on April 12, 1861, they attacked Fort Sumter.  They seceded from the Union to form the Confederate States of America.  Does Pelosi propose to remove the picture and statue of every Democrat in the country as secessionist racists?

Pelosi Secretes Her Party's Pro-Slavery Past.  Late Thursday [6/18/2020], Nancy Pelosi had four of her predecessors removed from a Portrait Collection that adorns the Speaker's Lobby in Congress.  These Democratic Speakers were ostensibly banished from the halls of Congress pursuant to their Confederate ties.  Madam Speaker insisted in a news conference that she was unaware of the portraits or their unsavory provenance until recently, despite their conspicuous location just outside the House chamber where she has worked for the last 33 years.  Having finally learned of the offensive paintings, Pelosi ordered them taken down.

Pelosi's gamble.  Why in the world would House Speaker Nancy Pelosi put together a $3 trillion bill that has no chance in high heaven of being enacted?  And force Democrats to vote for it anyway?  Her strategy in this episode didn't quite fit her image in the media as a brilliant political boss.  Instead, her pursuit of a legislative package to nowhere was what Republicans saw as an effort to keep her squabbling caucus united.

Defund the police?  How many sharks can the Democrats jump?  [Scroll down]  Sure enough, as 2019 progressed, it became clear that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was taking orders on key issues instead of giving them, appearances notwithstanding.  That's why we were treated to the impeachment farce, which had followed immediately upon the collapse of the Mueller farce.  Looking now at the defund-the-police mania, one has to wonder:  Has their unbridled hatred and fear of the Orange Man brought them to this peak of over-reach, where they lose all touch with the mainstream of American voters and pitch themselves into a decline toward eventual oblivion?  Have they jumped the shark?

Pelosi presenting special US flag to Floyd family sparks outrage; 'an insult to our service members'.  Scores of Americans were outraged after seeing a picture of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) presenting an American flag to the family of George Floyd as though he had been killed fighting for the country.  The photo, which was seen posted on various social media sites, was confirmed as genuine by BizPac Review after locating it as part of a collection involving the family of Floyd on Pelosi's official Twitter feed. [...] Scores of people reacted negatively to the photo after seeing it reposted by another Twitter user.

Brave Celebrities Fearlessly Stand Up Against Racism.  [Scroll down]  Did you see Nancy Pelosi's creaky kneeling photo op?  It was awfully nice of someone to help the 237-year-old Speaker of the House to her feet afterward.  Getting out there in her kente shawl was not at all transparent and condescending pandering, but was instead a powerful rebuke to all those people who don't vote her way and are totally racist, since she is loudly and clearly against racism.  This was a photo op of justice, as opposed to the photo op by Trump in front of the church the leftists burned down, [...]

James Woods Calls Out Pelosi For Being Silent On Her Own Father Overseeing Dedication Of Confederate Statue.  On Wednesday [6/10/2020], when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi demanded that Confederate statues on the U.S. Capitol be removed, she failed to mention that her father had overseen the dedication of the Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee Monument while he was Baltimore's mayor in 1948.

Why Wasn't Pelosi Offended Over Confederate Statues During Last 30 years?  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has been in Congress for more than 30 years and yet, during this time, she apparently never called for the removal of Confederate statues from the U.S. Capitol.  But she did on Wednesday, which prompted conservative talk radio host Mark Levin to ask why she didn't do it when Harry Reid (D-Nev.) or former KKK member Robert Byrd (D-W.Va.) ran the Senate.  On Wednesday, June 10, Pelosi sent a letter to the Joint Committee on the Library, which oversees the statues in the Capitol.  There are 11 statues of Confederate figures in the Capitol's Statuary Hall.

Nancy Pelosi Silent on Own Father Who Oversaw Dedication of Confederate Statue.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who on Wednesday demanded the removal of Confederate statues occupying the U.S. Capitol, has remained silent on her father's role in overseeing the dedication of the Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee Monument while serving as Baltimore's mayor in 1948.  Pelosi this week formally requested the removal of Confederate statues occupying the U.S. Capitol, dismissing them as "monuments to men who advocated cruelty and barbarism to achieve such a plainly racist end."  Her demand comes as angry protesters across the nation take matters into their own hands, vandalizing — and in some cases, beheading — statues and monuments memorializing the Civil War era and beyond.

Pelosi:  Confederate symbols 'have to go' from Capitol, bases.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday [6/11/2020] that it's time to remove symbols honoring Confederate figures from the U.S. Capitol building and military bases as the pandemic and racial unrest force a national reckoning with racial discrimination.  "These names have to go from these bases and these statues have to go from the Capitol," Pelosi said at her weekly news conference.

The Editor says...
Ms. Pelosi has been in the Congress for over 33 years.  Why are these statues and base names suddenly objectionable?

Systemic Racism and Bigotry Are the Lifeblood of the Left.  [Scroll down]  The only racism in America that is systemic — deeply ingrained into the system — is on the left. It is so disgusting that it is hard even to speak about it.  It is shameful, and it exists for one reason only: for White leftists to grab votes, [...] How low will they grovel to get power?  They will kneel on the floor.  They actually will kneel on the floor, groveling for power.  Of course, as Nancy Pelosi just found, she kneeled so long that she could not even get back up.  You think she was kneeling to Jesus?  Nancy Pelosi is America's leading Catholic proponent of abortion — though Joe Biden, Andrew Cuomo, and a boatload of other Democrat Catholics would take great offense at Nancy Pelosi getting all the credit for funding the killing of fetuses, especially in the Black community. That Pelosi is kneeling to Jesus?  And who, pray tell, was Schumer kneeling to?  He claims to be Jewish, so he is not kneeling to Jesus. But wait!  It is a core tenet of Judaism that kneeling is forbidden except on Yom Kippur during the recitation of the Kohen service that occurred at the Holy Temple in Jerusalem during Talmudic times.  Otherwise, it is so fundamentally against Judaism to kneel that every Jewish child learns the story associated with Talmud Tractate Gittin 57b of "The Woman and Her Seven Sons."

Nancy Pelosi Can't Get Up by Herself After Kneeling for Photo Op.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and a number of her congressional colleagues gathered to kneel on Monday for the time they say a police officer had his knee on the neck of George Floyd, but the photo op did not quite go as planned.  After the 8 minutes and 46 seconds the incident lasted, the members of Congress — including 79-year-old James Clyburn — rose.  But Pelosi nearly toppled over, quickly motioning for an aide to help her to her feet.  "It's better not to have on high heels," Pelosi said with a laugh as her mask dangled under her chin.

Pelosi and the Democrats have fallen and they can't get up.  On Monday [6/8/2020], Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the Democrat leadership became the living embodiment of a tagline symbolizing helpless frailty. [...] That was theater.  Reality was watching the same Congress people — especially the aged Pelosi — struggle to stand again:  [Video clip]  For those of us who vividly remember the Life Call commercials, it was impossible not to see in Nancy Pelosi and the other leaders the pathetic, frail, helpless woman, trapped on the floor, crying out "I've fallen and I can't get up.

Pelosi Suffers 10-Second Mental Lapse On-Camera During Press Conference.  House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) appeared to experience a ten-second mental lapse Thursday during an on-camera press conference.  Pelosi was reading from a letter she had sent to President Donald Trump earlier in the day expressing concerns about "the increased militarization" of law enforcement efforts in the Nation's Capital amid the violent protests and riots ravaging the city.  Pelosi reads from the letter, looks away from it for a moment — then loses her train of thought and stutters, unable to collect her thoughts, until she refocuses on the letter:  [Video clip]

Nancy Pelosi Surrounded by Guards as She Walks Among Protesters.  Video from Wednesday afternoon shows Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) surrounded by guards as she walks near protesters.  In video published by CNN, Pelosi can be seen walking under heavy foliage, surrounded by men in suits, ties, and sunglasses.  The Hill described the men as Pelosi's "security detail" and noted that Pelosi was walking among "a crowd of demonstrators outside the Capitol" when the video was taken.

Pelosi Lectures President Trump to Help the Country Heal as She Clutches Bible, Refuses to Condemn Violent Rioters.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday [6/2/2020] clutched a Bible and read scripture in reaction to President Trump's remarks from St. John's church.  Like a boss, President Trump walked from the White House across Lafayette Park to St. John's Church which was set on fire by protesters Sunday night.  Trump held up a Bible in front of the church.  In an effort to one-up Trump, petty Pelosi held up a Bible in response to Trump's bold move.

Pelosi pretends to be smarter than Trump, now she knows more than Obama about race relations.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Sunday blamed President Donald Trump for the escalating riots, looting, and mayhem spreading around the country in the wake of Minneapolis resident George Floyd's death, though the Justice Department believes many incidents are the result of organized anarchists.  In an interview with ABC News' George Stephanopoulos, Pelosi lamented the manner in which Floyd died after being pinned to the street by fired police officer Derek Chauvin for several minutes.  But then she also complained about several "unfortunate statements" made as initial peaceful demonstrations lapsed into widespread looting and violence.

Nancy Pelosi won't 'take the bait' on riots: 'I kind of ignore what President Trump says'.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday said she is "not paying too much attention" to what President Trump tweets about nationwide protests, saying she's worried about "the knee on the neck" and questions of justice.  "I kind of ignore what President Trump says," the California Democrat told ABC'S "This Week."  Prodded by the network, she said Mr. Trump does have a responsibility, like any president, to "unify the country and not to fuel the flames."

Democrat Leader Nancy Pelosi Attacks President Trump — Refuses to Condemn Leftist Looters and Rioters!  Speaker Nancy Pelosi went on ABC's This Week on Sunday to attack President Trump.  Leftist protesters have looted and burned hundreds of businesses and government buildings across America the past three days.  Pelosi attacked President Trump for "fanning the flames" this weekend during this weekend of violence.

Nancy Pelosi Delays FISA Vote After Progressive, Conservative Revolt.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) delayed a vote on Wednesday [5/27/2020] to reauthorize parts of the FISA program after a revolt from conservatives and progressive Democrats.  Pelosi decided to cancel Wednesday's vote on the FISA reauthorization after President Donald Trump signaled his opposition to the bill.  The bill faced increasing opposition as Wednesday progressed, and Pelosi failed to galvanize a coalition that could pass an extension of the FISA program.

Nancy Pelosi: 'Every Crisis' Including Coronavirus Is an Opportunity to Advance Leftist Agenda.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said during a press conference on Wednesday that "every crisis" is an opportunity to advance a leftist agenda.  "We have to open the economy, we have to do so in a way that gives more opportunity for access to care, to credit, to opportunity," Pelosi said during a press conference regarding her coronavirus phase four bill, the HEROES Act.  "Just as Mr. Clyburn said, this is an opportunity, every crisis is," Pelosi added.

Numerous Former Pelosi Aides [are] Lobbying For Companies Seeking Benefits Related To Coronavirus, Report Says.  Numerous former aides to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi have reportedly transitioned to working as lobbyists for companies which have sought benefits from legislation related to the coronavirus, making a bundle of money for their firms in the process.  The Washington Free Beacon examined federal disclosure records and found at least seven of those aides, including Pelosi's former chief of staff, Nadeam Elshami, senior policy adviser Anne MacMillan, and special assistant Shanti Stanton, have represented over 50 different entities in 2020.  The Beacon added, "Their firms received over $2 million from these clients during this time.  These fees were for lobbying on multiple issues in addition to coronavirus legislation and policies."

Report: House Republicans To File Lawsuit Against Nancy Pelosi For Proxy Voting Plan.  Multiple news outlets are reporting that House Republicans plan to file a lawsuit in federal court against Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) over a recent pandemic-related rule change that allows a single member of Congress to serve as a proxy vote for up to 10 other members of Congress.  According to The Wall Street Journal, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) will lead the lawsuit and be joined by nearly two dozen other legislators, including GOP Conference Chair Liz Cheney (R-WY) and Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA).

Pelosi: "Vote-by-Mail is More Democratic" Than Voting in Person with Photo ID.  It is obvious the Democrats are using the Coronavirus as an excuse to push for mail-in ballots rather than in-person voting in an effort to steal the 2020 election.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has repeatedly tried to sneak in federal ballot harvesting laws into several of the Coronavirus stimulus bills.  Pelosi is now trying to shove a $3.6 billion 'vote-by-mail' proposal into the latest Coronavirus stimulus bill. [...] Pelosi said that voting by mail, with no chain of custody, is "more democratic" than voting in person with photo ID.

Pelosi's Leninist Stimulus Bill.  As soon as the Bolsheviks took over Russia in October 1917, Vladimir Lenin began churning out rubles.  In fact, he spent half the state's revenue on just the printing of new currency.  Within a year, the ruble was worth 100,000,000 times less than it had been before the communists took over.  Existing rubles, and any investment denominated in rubles, were worthless.  Lenin's inflationary program was not a response to the need for an increased money supply.  It was a deliberate strategy designed to eliminate money as a means of transactions and, with it, to crush capitalism.  From that point on, the state would directly control the means of production and distribution, and the people would, in theory, be dependent on the state for all goods and services.

Democrats Brazenly Try to Buy Illegal Alien Votes in Latest Pork Legislation.  Speaker Pelosi and her merry band of sycophants, who currently control the House, just passed a 3 Trillion dollar liberal wish list spending package which insures 16 Billion in stimulus checks to Illegal Aliens.  The HEROES Act, which has no pathway to becoming law, includes a provision that would retroactively send payments to any illegal person who filed a Federal Income tax return for 2018 or 2019 with a tax ID number.  Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has stated the bill has no chance of passage in the Senate and President Trump has publicly declared if it did, he would veto it.  Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy lays out the absurdity of Pelosi's bill.

The Editor says...
The very fact that the Democrats are trying to buy the votes of those who can't legally vote at all says a lot about the state of our election system.

The left's two big albatrosses — Biden and Pelosi.  One has to wonder, do those on the left, including the media, actually think that Joe Biden is a viable candidate for president?  Do they not realize that Nancy Pelosi is as senile as Joe?  Like Joe, she often slurs her words, suffers brain freezes mid-sentence and spews gibberish. [...] Pelosi is a life-long power-mad lunatic.  She has allowed her own district to dissolve into a homeless camp with all the attendant problems — discarded needles, feces on the streets and sidewalks, and an ever-escalating crime wave.  Smash and grab car burglaries occur by the minute in San Feancisco and there are no consequences for the perpetrators if caught.  Like Sen. Dianne Feinstein, Pelosi and her husband are millionaires several times over; they've become rich because both have been in Congress for so many years.  They all get rich on insider information.

The Shutdown/Reopen Wars and the New KKK.  [Scroll down]  I know that all you chaps have been focused for years on the Journolist, and the Deep State, and the Swamp Creatures as the cause of everything wrong with America.  But I am wondering if all along, the real problem has been a revival of the KKK, in the form of the Klueless Karen Koven.  What was Speaker Karen Pelosi's Women in White thingy at the State of the Union but a Kaffee Klatsch of Karens?

Fat-shaming and concern-trolling, Pelosi and pals suddenly fear for President Trump's health.  On a day when we all remember Eddie Haskell (Ken Osmond, RIP), out comes Nancy Pelosi with her sudden and newfound 'concerns' for President Trump's health:  [Tweet]  Which has about as much authencity as a botox-frozen forehead or a three-trillion-dollar bill.  After all, haven't Democrats been fantasizing about killing him?  And what's with the fat-shaming?

Nancy the ice cream addict ain't exactly Twiggy herself!
Pelosi Calls Trump 'Morbidly Obese' On CNN.  Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi called President Donald Trump "morbidly obese" Monday night after he announced that he has been taking hydroxychloroquine as a coronavirus preventative treatment for more than a week.  In an appearance on CNN, Pelosi was asked about Trump's usage of hydroxychloroquine, to which she responded by saying "He's our president and I would rather he not be taking something that has not been approved by the scientists, especially in his age group and in his, shall we say, weight group — morbidly obese, they say" Pelosi said to CNN's Anderson Cooper.

The Perils of Pelosi.  When Republicans failed to deliver for the American people and lost their majority in the United States House of Representatives in 2018, a true poison was unleashed on the nation.  For a second time, Nancy Pelosi became U.S. Speaker of the House and in her latest stint in this position she has been incredibly damaging to this country.  For months, she pursued a divisive and unnecessary impeachment of President Donald Trump.  Instead of working to fight the coronavirus in January and February, congressional Democrats were only focused on impeaching and convicting President Trump.  The Ukraine hoax which led to the flimsy impeachment charges was as ridiculous as the Russia hoax, but it did not matter to Democrats inflicted with Trump Derangement Syndrome.

New House vote-by-proxy measure sets off screaming alarms as Pelosi gobbles power.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi essentially told members of Congress they don't need to show up for work anymore and she will take care of voting for them.  The California Democrat led members of the House to pass legislation on Friday [5/15/2020] that allows lawmakers to stay home and vote by proxy during the coronavirus pandemic.  The unprecedented bill coincided with the approval of a massive $3 trillion coronavirus stimulus package that has objecting Republicans reeling.

Nancy Pelosi is Once Again Trying to Force Americans to Fund Planned Parenthood Abortion Biz.  For the second time in as many weeks, Speaker Nancy Pelosi is attempting to exploit the coronavirus crisis to push her abortion agenda on the American people.  During the development of the first stimulus bill to tackle the coronavirus situation, White House officials caught Pelosi trying to force Americans to fund abortions because she put funding in the bill under a section of HHS where the provisions of the Hyde Amendment would not apply.  Now, Pelosi is trying to include funding for the Planned Parenthood abortion company in the bill to provide economic relief for small businesses, even though Planned Parenthood is a profitable abortion corporation that technically is a nonprofit.  As The Hill reports, Pelosi wanted to include Planned Parenthood in the mix with small businesses so it could get taxpayer dollars over the objections of pro-life Americans.

New House rule allowing proxy votes is outrageous — Increases Pelosi's power.  Americans should be outraged and frightened by an unprecedented rule change backed by Democrats and approved by the House on a 217-189 vote Friday night allowing for proxy voting and remote committee meetings to guard against the spread of the coronavirus.  While the duration of the rule change — which drew strong objections from Republicans — was labeled as "temporary" for 45 days, in government there is rarely a "temporary" duration to any new centralization of power.  Under this new House rule, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has more control over the House than any previous speaker in American history.

Madam Speaker, proxy voting is not remote voting.  Yesterday [5/15/2020], Ed Morrissey provided a good takedown of the preposterous $3 trillion dollar "stimulus" bill passed by Nancy Pelosi and most of her Democratic colleagues in the House.  The number of things wrong with this budget-busting boondoggle is too lengthy to fully explore here, but in the same session, they snuck in a rule change that Ed mentioned briefly but deserves a bit more attention.  That was the decision to temporarily (we hope) allow proxy votes to be cast on the House floor.  As Ed correctly noted, it's a rather pointless maneuver since it would only initially last for 45 days.  If this dead-on-arrival package was actually passed, it includes a provision for sixty days of vacation for Congress so there wouldn't be any voting going on anyway.  But the proxy vote rule also allows for the measure to be renewed every 45 days if the members think they can get away with it.

Nancy Pelosi's $3 trillion coronavirus 'relief' bill is purely a political stunt.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is happy to play rank politics with the federal coronavirus response.  Exhibit A is the absurd $3 trillion "relief" bill she's set for floor vote on Friday [5/15/2020].  It's the first emergency bill written by one party with zero input from the other.  Some Dems say it's just an "opening bid," but why waste time crafting 1,800 pages of legislation full of poison pills for the opposition?  It seems Pelosi thinks virtue-signaling to her base is worth the trouble.

The Real Reason Why Pelosi Is Finally Putting the House Back to Work.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is finally bringing the House of Representatives back to work for a vote on Friday.  The House went into recess on March 14 after passing the coronavirus stimulus bill, the CARES Act.  Representatives briefly returned in late April to pass extra funding for the Paycheck Protection Act, but then they went into recess again.  While the Senate went back to work last Monday, the House has remained in recess for two months.  Both chambers went into recess citing concerns about the spread of the coronavirus, as the Washington, D.C., area is a COVID-19 hotspot.  On Tuesday, Pelosi unveiled her $3 trillion bill supposedly focused on providing more relief for Americans during the coronavirus crisis.  Like her previous efforts, however, the bill is jam-packed with lefty wish-list items, including vote-by-mail provisions, unemployment checks that actually pay workers more than they would receive on the job, and a repeal of part of Trump's 2017 tax cuts, among other things.

Forget Pelosi's Boondoggle Bill — Take Taxes to Zero Instead.  After spending most of the pandemic crisis on vacation, an ice cream-fortified Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi finally emerged from her magnificent kitchen to propose a behemoth mess of a spending bill to allegedly save America's faltering economy.  Her 1,815-page proposal forms the "War and Peace" of legislative monstrosities.  In fact, the endless big-government wish list contains generous payments for illegal immigrants, tax credits for wealthy residents of high-tax states, massive grants to fiscally irresponsible states, a national prohibition on identification for voters, and even federal loans for lobbyists.  This $3 trillion disaster would massively balloon the federal debt only to consolidate administrative state power and deepen dependency on federal programs.

Pelosi won't tolerate reporter acting like Trump is our president.  Americans weary of the rank partisanship increasingly displayed by Democrats the longer President Donald Trump is in office aren't likely to see a respite anytime soon, if the behavior of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is any indication.  In an interview Friday [5/8/2020] with C-SPAN in which the California Democrat literally stammered her way through, she became contentious with anchor Steve Scully when he asked if the president is part of the discussions going on in Congress to pass yet another multi-trillion-dollar coronavirus relief package.  "I... I don't have any idea what the president does," Pelosi responded after a few seconds of appearing to be confused.

Nancy Pelosi:  Barr Dropped Flynn Charges to 'Cover Up' for Trump.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) reacted angrily to the Department of Justice dropping its criminal case against former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn Thursday [5/7/2020], saying Attorney General William Barr's "politicization of justice knows no bounds."

Pelosi Redefines Hypocrisy and Destroys #MeToo for... Biden?  [Scroll down]  In the first place, no matter what she said, she didn't "believe all women" any more than she or anyone would believe all men.  (Neither did Biden, we can hope.)  Only an imbecile would — and Pelosi is no imbecile.  She is an unremitting power-driven political operative and a successful one, quite willing to lie at a moment's notice to achieve her goals.  And that's what she did.  Saying she believes all women was a totally expedient lie at the time, not mere hypocrisy, which is too weak.  Lie number two is, despite what she says, she doesn't have any idea whether Joe Biden is guilty or innocent of sexually assaulting Tara Reade, irrespective of how long she has known him.  (Would she have expected that Ted Kennedy would have left a woman drowning in a car?)

Multi-Millionaire Pelosi Dons $22 Designer Mask (Nice To Still Have A Job).  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is rolling in dough.  Her net worth reportedly tops $120 million (not bad on an annual salary of $194,000).  We know all about her $25,000 refrigerator stacked to the brim with $12-a-pint gourmet ice cream.  But now she's got a new ostentatious show of her wealth.  The California Democrat has been sporting designer masks when she's at the Capitol (she refuses to call Democrats back to work, despite the coronavirus, but she's still there from time to time [don't ask how much it costs U.S. taxpayers to fly her back and forth to her San Francisco mansion]).

Nancy Pelosi's just wrong to keep the House from meeting.  President Trump's task force has been working hard to fight the coronavirus pandemic and open up America.  Meanwhile, the House of Representatives has been silent — AWOL, you might say.  Even as the Senate returns to work this week, the House remains shuttered.  And now, feeling the heat for their prolonged absence, House Democrats are floating plans that would upend centuries of legislative precedent and concentrate power in Speaker Nancy Pelosi's hands.  One Democratic idea would allow a representative to ask a colleague to cast a vote on her behalf, known as a proxy vote.  And this proxy vote would count for purposes of a quorum, the majority needed to proceed with business.  If implemented, this brainstorm would create a procedural fiction in which a representative would be considered "physically" present in the Capitol when she is home with her freezer full of gourmet ice cream.

Pelosi continues push to get stimulus cash to illegal immigrants with guaranteed income plan.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Friday that any guaranteed monthly income plan that Congress works on should apply to illegal immigrants with tax ID numbers.  The IRS issues Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers (ITINs) to illegal immigrants and other non-citizens who lack Social Security numbers to allow them to file tax returns.  Individuals with ITINs are not eligible for direct stimulus payments in the $2.2 trillion CARES Act that Congress passed.  Earlier this week, Pelosi suggested including guaranteed minimum income for individuals in the next coronavirus stimulus package.  She didn't specify the set amount of guaranteed income being considered.

Trump slams Pelosi for rejecting quick testing, refusing to come to work.  With Speaker Nancy Pelosi having already canceled the House's return from break due to COVID-19, President Donald Trump offered speedy coronavirus testing at the Capitol to entice Democrats to get back to work.  When the California Democrat rejected the offer, in a rare joint statement with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., Trump fired back in a tweet, referring to his House adversary as "Crazy Nancy."

Pelosi's Congress Should Shelter At Home For The Rest Of The Year.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is as determined as President Franklin D. Roosevelt to exploit this crisis for political gain, on the well-founded calculation that if Democrats ask Republicans to unleash a horde of locusts, they'll agree to half the locusts.  Maybe even three-quarters!  Despite failing so far to use the pandemic to get race and sex quotas for corporate boards, insane emissions requirements on airlines, more money for Democrat politicking funneled through unions, student loan bailouts, and bigger tax credits for solar panels, Democrats have already commandeered it to send pork to the Kennedy Center, bail out the U.S. Postal Service, get raises for Congress as 26 million Americans filed for unemployment, fund PBS stations, and upcharge for refugee resettlement.  And they're just getting started.  Pelosi has started talking about moving beyond blanketing the nation with deficit-funded checks into a "guaranteed income."

Susan Sarandon Praises Nancy Pelosi's Democrat Challenger After Speaker Defends Biden.  Actress Susan Sarandon praised a Democratic challenger to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's congressional seat, arguing that people have the chance to vote for someone willing to "speak up even when it's not politically expedient."  Sarandon made what looked at least like a tacit endorsement in response to Pelosi's reaction to allegations against presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden, where she effectively dismissed the claims made by his former Senate staffer Tara Reade that he sexually assaulted her back in 1993.

Pelosi Says She is 'Satisfied' With Biden's Response to the Sexual Assault Allegation Against Him.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday told CNN she's "satisfied" with how former Vice President Joe Biden has responded to the allegation made by a former staffer, who says Biden sexually assaulted her in 1993.  "I am satisfied with how he has responded.  I know him.  I was proud to endorse him on Monday.  Very proud to endorse him.  And, so, I am satisfied with that," said Pelosi.  However, Biden himself has not responded personally, nor has he been asked about the allegation in any of the recent podcasts he has done from the basement of his Delaware home.  Biden's campaign has denied Tara Reade's allegation, but even some media outlets on the left now say it's time for Biden to address it himself.

New Democrat Coalition to Pelosi:  We respectfully request you reopen Congress.  Respectfully?  Pretty much, yes, but the subtext of this request from the New Democrat Coalition leadership to Nancy Pelosi clearly questions the wisdom of her strategy, if not her leadership.  With the COVID-19 crisis stretching out more than a month without any significant oversight in Congress, Pelosi appears to be facing a backbench revolt as House Democrats begin to wonder why Pelosi keeps them sidelined.

Democrats ramp up demand for massive bailout of state and local governments.  House and Senate Democrats are escalating calls for an historic federal bailout of state and local governments coping with significant revenue losses due to the coronavirus outbreak.  The price tag for the aid Democrats propose is massive:  $500 billion for state governments plus "a very big figure," for municipalities, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a California Democrat, told reporters Tuesday [4/28/2020].  And there's more:  Pelosi said lawmakers may seek a $200 billion increase in Medicaid spending.

Pelosi: A Minimum Guaranteed Income May Now Be 'Worthy of Our Attention'.  As Congress weighs another relief package amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic which has many small businesses closed until stay-at-home orders are lifted, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) floated out the possibility of a minimum guaranteed income for workers.  Pelosi said on "MSNBC Live" a minimum guaranteed income is "perhaps" now "worthy" of getting looked at being added into the next funding package.

Nancy Pelosi endorses Joe Biden for president.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Monday endorsed former Vice President and presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden — saying he can help guide the US out of the coronavirus crisis.  "As we face coronavirus, Joe has been a voice of reason and resilience, with a clear path to lead us out of this crisis," Pelosi said in a prerecorded video.  The California Democrat also cited Biden's experience helping to pass the Affordable Care Act and implementing the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

Pelosi Suffers Brain Freeze, Stutters, Forgets California Governor's Name.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) suffered a bad brain freeze on Sunday [4/26/2020] during an appearance on CNN's "State of the Union."  The look on Jake Tapper's face says it all.  80-year-old Nancy Antoinette stuttered and forgot her own Governor's name on Sunday.

The empress of ice cream.  This isn't just any old fridge or ice cream, but the creme-de-la-creme.  The appliances, two large stainless-steel freezers, are filled to the brim with an extreme prestige brand name called Jeni's, which is marketed largely over the internet and sells for a minimum of $12 a pint.  Pelosi's choice would most likely be the "Emergency Chocolate Stash Collection," a six-pack of various cocoa concoctions that will set you back $86 a throw.  How many of these would it take to fill up two giant-sized freezers?

Nancy Pelosi parrots fabricated media narrative to demonize Trump.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has clearly bought into the "fake news" angle the anti-Trump media regularly employs in their quest to take out President Donald Trump.  Either that or the 80-year-old Democrat is suffering from brain freeze from too much expensive ice cream.  Fresh off a nose-wiping speech on the House floor, where Pelosi was seen on camera contaminating the lectern shared by representatives, the speaker flat out lied about a comment the president made at Thursday's White House briefing.

Pelosi Wipes Her Dripping Nose With Her Bare Hand, Then Touches House Floor Podium Used by Other Lawmakers.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday wiped her dripping nose with her bare hand, then took that same hand and wiped it all over the House floor lectern used by other members of Congress.  Pelosi's mask/scarf was also pulled down around her neck.  This is totally against CDC guidelines and 80-year-old Pelosi is definitely in the 'at-risk' category as are other elderly members of Congress.  This was just gross.

How does Nancy Pelosi get away with blocking desperately needed aid?  How does Nancy Pelosi get away with it?  How does the speaker of the House, in the midst of an unprecedented pandemic crisis, delay desperately needed aid to small businesses and, in the process, escape blame in a highly politicized environment?  Pelosi didn't stand in the way of aid for just an hour or two, or a day or two.  She stonewalled for two weeks while small-business people across the country struggled to stay afloat in a time in which public fear of the coronavirus and government stay-at-home orders reduced their business incomes to zero.

Biden campaign spends tens of thousands on ice cream brand Pelosi had packed in freezer.  Joe Biden's presidential campaign spent nearly $11,000 on gourmet ice cream that is also a favorite of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's.  The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee's campaign spent $10,600 on Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams between May 2019 and March 2020. The ice cream was listed as donor gifts, according to Federal Election Committee data.  Pelosi has taken a lot of heat since last week when she joined James Corden on his late-night comedy show and showcased her freezer packed with ice cream.  Among the selection were pints of Jeni's Splendid.  "I don't know what I would've done if ice cream were not invented," she said via video conference from her home.

Speaker Pelosi, end government-by-secret-caucus.  Our Constitution set up three branches of government.  And yet, in this crisis, only two branches are fully operational.  In particular, the House of Representatives is no longer functioning as a legislative body at all but as an executive committee run by just one representative: the Speaker of the House.  There are no open debates, no televised committee hearings, no minority rights.  "The People's House" is not open to the people.

Poison Pelosi Blames Mitch McConnell for Blocking Small Business Funding, After She Cheered Schumer for Blocking Small Business Funding.  Last Thursday the PPP Loan program ran out of money.  The $349 billion allotted to the program to save small businesses had already been distributed.  At least 20,000 business applications went unprocessed on Thursday and Friday.  Last Tuesday, eight days ago on April 14th, Speaker Pelosi went on late night television and congratulated Senate Democrats for blocking the crucial funding to small business owners in America.  Pelosi made the comments on MSNBC.

Trump campaign goes for the jugular with new ad: 'Let them eat ice cream — Nancy Antoinette'.  No doubt, NeverTrumps are clutching their pearls over the visceral new campaign ad released under President Trump's imprimatur.  It certainly isn't gentlemanly the way George W. Bush was; it's primal in its attack on Nancy Pelosi and its appeal to class resentments.  It's not the sort of lose-with-dignity approach favored the last generation of the GOP establishment.  But in an era of phony impeachment efforts and special counsel investigations and "blood on his hands" accusations, it is giving back to the Democrats exactly what they have been hurling Trump's way.

Democrat Law Professor Calls Out Pelosi For Contradictory Statements.  Jonathan Turley, a self-described Democrat who is a Constitutional Law Professor at George Washington University, called out House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday over multiple contradictory statements that Pelosi gave during an interview on "Fox News Sunday."  "Nancy Pelosi just said to Chris Wallace on Fox that she does not understand people publicly protesting civil liberties on lock down orders," Turley tweeted.  "However, this followed her defense of her calling people to join her in Chinatown in late February as a protest against discrimination."

Steve Scalise: 'Sickening' to Watch Pelosi Use Small Business Aid as Leverage.  House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview on Monday that it is "sickening" to watch House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) use small business aid as leverage to include more leftist provisions in future coronavirus legislation.  Scalise has collected stories from businesses across his district and the country that can no longer obtain a Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan due to Pelosi's objection to a simple renewal of the program.

If You Protest Against Leftist Tyranny, You're Racist.  [Scroll down]  Americans are legitimately complaining that the draconian cure is shaping up to be worse than the disease.  Speaker of the House and nepotism-enthusiast Nancy Pelosi decried the protesters, of course:  "What they're doing is really unfortunate," she condescended.  "What we have to do is, is, is shelter in place."  That's easy for her to say.  While Pelosi (who as of last year has a net worth of over $120 million) "shelters in place" in her San Francisco mansion that features a $24,000 refrigerator stocked with gourmet ice cream, her constituents are losing their livelihoods and life savings.  Her nephew-by-marriage Gov. Gavin Newsom, California's answer to Justin Trudeau, said he will not be swayed by public protests in deciding when he will reopen the state: [...]

Pelosi's Easter Revelation:  You Know, Trump Sure Has Made a Lot of Mistakes.  In an interview on Fox News Sunday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Planned Parenthood) made an interesting claim.  Host Chris Wallace recounted the back and forth war of words between Pelosi and President Trump and asked the speaker if their verbal warfare is helpful during the coronavirus pandemic.  Pelosi said yes, she had some sort of revelation allowing her to bash the president.  On Easter Sunday. [...] Pelosi has spent Trump's entire presidency bashing and undermining him at every turn, culminating in the Democrats' effort to impeach him over a partisan witch hunt.  That purely political stunt was expressly designed to hobble Trump's ability to govern heading into the election.  And it neatly overlapped the rise of the coronavirus pandemic — forcing the president and most of his senior advisers to deal with being just the third American president ever to face impeachment, while the Wuhan virus started ravaging the world.

The left's new hysterical narrative?  Testing!  Testing!  Testing!.  Nancy Pelosi was positively ghoulish on Fox News Sunday [4/19/2020].  She denied exacerbating the virus in San Francisco, when late in February she was encouraging her constituents to join in her city's Chinese Lunar New Year celebrations.  The woman is the Wicked Witch of the West.  With her fancy kitchen appliances and her freezer full of $13-a-pint ice cream, she is enjoying her vacation.  She appears to be relishing the destruction of the economy that Trump had so successfully energized.  She is refusing to go back to D.C. and vote on an additional bill to save small businesses.  She does not [care] about the 22 million people suddenly unemployed; she thinks this crisis can only benefit her party and her power.  She is as senile as Biden if she thinks this ploy will work.  She is fast becoming the Joker of American politics.

Sen. Lindsey Graham eviscerates Speaker Nancy Pelosi saying 'she hates Trump to the point of hurting our own nation'.  Senator Lindsey Graham ripped into House Speaker Nancy Pelosi over her criticism of Donald Trump's decision to halt funding to the World Health Organization, claiming her contempt for the president is harming the country.  'Her issue is she hates Trump to the point of hurting our own nation,' the South Carolina senator said on Fox News' Justice with Judge Jeanine on Saturday night.  'She is condemning President Trump for cutting funds off of the WHO because they've been in China's pocket, as she one time mentioned the fact the virus came out of China, that the Chinese Communist Party lied to the American people and the world at large,' he added.

Turley fires back at Pelosi for criticizing people 'protesting civil liberties' after defending Chinatown appearance.  Constitutional law scholar Jonathan Turley found fault with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi after she criticized protesters of local social distancing guidelines in the same interview she advocated for an end to discrimination.  "Nancy Pelosi just said to Chris Wallace on Fox that she does not understand people publicly protesting civil liberties on lock down orders," Turley tweeted Sunday.  "However, this followed her defense of her calling people to join her in Chinatown in late February as a protest against discrimination ..."  On Sunday [4/19/2020], Pelosi defended why she went out to promote San Francisco's Chinatown in late February after news of the coronavirus began making headlines.  "What we were trying to do is end the discrimination, the stigma that was going out against the Asian American community," Pelosi said.

15 House Democrats Call to Replenish Small Business Relief Fund Despite Pelosi's Objections.  On Thursday morning [4/16/2020], the Small Business Administration's (SBA) small business relief fund, otherwise known as the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), officially ran out of money.  The PPP's loss of funding sparked outrage from congressional GOP leaders such as House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).  Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) also called to replenish the fund "ASAP."  As Speaker Pelosi continues to object to a clean refunding of the small business relief fund, House Democrats broke with the Democrat leader to call for immediate refunding of the PPP.

Media Would Destroy Republicans for What Nancy Pelosi Is Doing to Block Funding for PPP.  On Thursday [4/16/2020], the $350 billion Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) ran out of money, having disbursed all of its funds to small businesses across the country.  Meanwhile, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) sat in her mansion in San Francisco, refusing to call the House back into session to replenish the fund — and enjoying gourmet ice cream from her $24,000 freezer.  Not only that:  Pelosi was proud of her self-indulgence, tweeting her appearance this week on CBS' Late, Late Show.

How Much Do The Pelosi's Have Invested In China?  Pelosi may present herself as the defender of the little guy.  She is anything but.  In 2018 her net worth was roughly $160 million.  She is married to Paul Pelosi who runs a top tier investment and real estate firm in San Francisco.  Over the course of decades, as Nancy has risen through the ranks of the Democratic Party, the Pelosi's have gotten fabulously wealthy.  There have been any number of allegations over the decades that Nancy and her husband have profited in ways that are clearly illegal from the access a senior politician enjoys.  Over a span of years, Nancy Pelosi used her influence to steer more than $1 billion to the expansion of a light rail line into a San Francisco neighborhood where her husband owned commercial property and in which business associates of his then purchased additional properties.  The value of real estate in the area exploded with the arrival of light rail, and the Pelosi's made a killing.  There has also been an almost unending number of allegations that Paul Pelosi has benefited from what is known as insider trading.  That is, he has made sometimes enormous purchases of stocks based on information allegedly provided to him by Nancy, who was privy to sensitive, non-public information by way of her position.

'You should be ashamed': Critics unleash on Pelosi for showing off freezer loaded with ice cream.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi took some heat for showing off her freezer packed with ice cream during the coronavirus crisis.  The California Democrat joined comedian James Corden on his late-night show Monday and showed off how much ice cream is in her freezer in addition to wondering how Trump's base could still support him after his response to the pandemic.  "I don't know what I would've done if ice cream were not invented," she said via video conference from her home.

As Emergency Funds For Small Businesses Run Out, San Fran Nan Shows Off Freezer Full of Chocolate Ice Cream.  [Scroll down]  As the money was running out, Pelosi proudly shared a video showcasing her very expensive freezer full of ice cream and a fancy basket full of chocolate.  "Other people in our family go for some other flavors, but chocolate, and then we have some other chocolate here," Pelosi said, showing off the multiple pints of ice-cream in her freezer.  Pelosi told the "Late, Late Show" host James Corden that while in quarantine, she was eating as much candy and chocolate as possible.  "I enjoy it," she explained.  "I like it better than anything else."  She said she had her fridge recently stocked for Easter.  "I don't know what I would have done if ice-cream hadn't been invented," she gushed.

As Small Business Relief Fund Runs Dry, San Fran Nan Shows Off Her Sub-Zero Fridge.  [Scroll down]  In the situation described above, which happens to be the current reality on the ground today, what do you do?  Well, if you are Democrat Speaker of the House San Fran Nan Pelosi, you make a video with hosted by a fabulously wealthy cretin from Hollywood, showing off your million-dollar kitchen in your $30 million San Francisco home, featuring your $15,000 Sub-Zero refrigerator that is filled with designer ice cream, among other fabulously expensive delicacies.

Nancy Pelosi Extends House Vacation for 3 More Weeks.  Today, San Francisco's on lockdown, Chinatown's a ghost town, and the San Fran Nan is supposedly locked in her Pacific Heights manse for the duration.  But the Speaker was adamant to Corben in saying we must act fast and "work 24-7 and [have] all hands on deck ... working for a cure, vaccine and the rest." Quickly now!  Someone should do something!  This was just hours after Pelosi gave House members another 3 weeks off "absent an emergency."  That's a quote.  Guess that whole National Emergency/global pandemic thing doesn't qualify as "an emergency."  Perhaps Pelosi could use that extra time waiting for "an emergency" to eat all that ice cream in her freezer.

Pelosi Shows Off Her Kitchen and Gourmet Ice Cream Collection as Americans Stand in Line at Food Banks.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) showed off her expensive kitchen appliances and massive gourmet ice cream collection during an appearance on a late night show as Americans stand in line at food banks.  Pelosi slammed President Trump over his Coronavirus response on Monday's episode of "The Late Show" with James Corden before showing off her 15 flavor ice cream collection.  Pelosi, who is one of the wealthiest members of Congress, held Americans hostage by delaying the first Coronavirus stimulus package.

Pelosi and her refrigerators
Nancy Pelosi Struggles Through Coronapocalypse With Her Fancy Designer Ice Cream.  Well, nothing says "Woman of the People" quite like posing in front of two of your enormous gleaming stainless-steel luxury refrigerators with a sweater tied around your neck.  What color is that, is that peach?  No, more of a tangerine.  Pumpkin, perhaps.  Very comforting, in any case.  Whoever dresses Pelosi is earning his and/or her pay. [...] Down with ICE, up with ice cream!  This is something every single American can appreciate, and it's not at all tone-deaf.  Those containers of Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams you saw packed into Pelosi's freezers are only $12 per pint, so you can buy literally 100 of them with your Trump check.  Almost as many as Pelosi has.

Nancy Pelosi Shows Off Her Kitchen During 'Late Late Show' Appearance While Americans Form Food Lines.  Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi showed off her kitchen during an appearance on a late night comedy show, while Americans form food lines across the country.  Pelosi appeared on Monday's [4/13/2020] episode of "The Late Late Show" with James Corden, where she slammed President Donald Trump's handling of COVID-19 and then showed off her ice cream collection.

The Editor says...
Since I don't own a television, this was the first time I had ever heard of James Corden.

Is Nancy Pelosi trying to be the most hated woman in America?  As part of its coronavirus relief package, Congress passed the Paycheck Protection Program ("PPP"), a $349 billion fund to help businesses with fewer than 500 employees. [...] Pelosi seems determined once again to put her agenda ahead of "the little people's" needs.  This time, she's refusing to let the Democrats agree to Mitch McConnell's clean bill:  ["]Instead, Democrats want McConnell to acquiesce to jumps in funding for several entities that received billions under the CARES act, including health care systems, and to demands to reconfigure the PPP system so that minority and female entrepreneurs are given priority in lending.["] That's bad.  What's worse is that, as small business owners are forced to fire their employees and shut down their life's work, Pelosi is boasting about blocking the PPP infusion.

Clueless Pelosi Gets Blasted For Her 'Marie Antoinette' Moment While Americans Are Suffering.  [Scroll down]  But just so you know how much she cares, Pelosi gave us a lovely "Let them eat cake" Marie Antoinette moment from her luxurious San Francisco home, with what looks like two refrigerators.  Nice to become rich while being in Congress.  If you've lost your job or are having trouble getting toilet paper, food or paying your mortgage or rent, what a great thing it is to see Pelosi talk with James Corden about how she keeps her spirits up "during these trying times," showing off expensive commercial grade appliances jam packed with her $12 pints of designer ice cream in her freezer.  [Video clip]

Time Wasted.  [Scroll down]  If anyone dawdled, it was Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.  She allowed the likes of Schiff to conjure up conspiracies that were so far-fetched that his constituents should vote him out of office this November 3 or secede from the Union.  Then, when the House settled on its bill of impeachment, Nancy sat on the bill for four weeks, refusing to send it on until January 16, and Democrats in the Senate still were not satisfied that there should be an impeachment vote.  Only when Senate Leader Mitch McConnell ended this nonsensical travesty and put it to a vote was some sort of order restored.  In the meantime, what was happening?  Well, the coronavirus, we now know, was spreading throughout the world in early 2020 with little action being taken by anyone.  Did any of the aforementioned misbehavior by the Democrats have anything to do with the president's action or inaction?  I think it did.

Nancy Pelosi and her Democrats' unending shame.  There are some truly terrible people in Congress; there always have been some throughout American history.  But as the country navigates the course of this mis-modeled and over-hyped COVID-19 pandemic, Nancy Pelosi stands out as a genuine enemy of America.  She loathes the president so much she has relinquished any semblance of ethics and her own personal character.  Every word she utters is a lie.  She knows [quite] well that the president was on top of this virus crisis while she and her fellow anti-Americans were gleefully and despicably embroiled in their attempt to remove the president from office.  Not one of the principals in this fiasco — Pelosi, Adam Schiff, Jerry Nadler, or the rest of them — gave a single thought to the potential threat of the disease emanating from China.  There is no record of any of them even mentioning it until the economic shutdown brought it to their attention. [...] As Pelosi's foot-dragging on the relief bill proves, she cares not one bit about actual human beings.  She is as Stalinist as they come in America; we are just statistics to be used and abused for her purposes.

Free advice:  Whatever Nancy Pelosi recommends, do the opposite!
Nancy Pelosi warns Donald Trump NOT to reopen the country too early and risk a new wave of coronavirus.  Speaker Nancy Pelosi warned Donald Trump not to reopen the country too early as the president has shown increasing signs of impatience with the coronavirus lockdown. [...] Several of Trump's political and economic advisers have also taken up that call, with an eye toward a return to normal life — along with a bit of social distancing — at the beginning of May.

Pelosi Leads Democratic Effort to Use Health Crisis to Change Election Laws.  She's at it again.  After nearly torpedoing the CARES Act with a farfetched, radical, extreme environmental wish list, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is once again trying to attach her liberal wish list to Phase 4 of Congress's coronavirus relief response.  This time Pelosi is focusing in on her plan to usher in mandatory mail-in voting.  CNN's Anderson Cooper asked Pelosi directly if she would try to change election laws in the wake of the coronavirus.  She would.

'Here we go again': Pelosi, Schiff plot new probe of Trump.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has spent the last three-plus years investigating President Trump, and each time, she's come up empty.  But she's going to give it another go, this time as Americans are locked down while the coronavirus sweeps across the nation.  Mrs. Pelosi announced last week that she is setting up a select House committee to "assure that the taxpayer dollars are being wisely and efficiently spent" — but the California Democrat also said she wants to "examine all aspects of the federal response to the coronavirus."

Democrat Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) Escalates Corona Spread.  In one of the most contemptuous interviews in American history, Nancy Pelosi, on Meet the Press, accused President Trump of accelerating the deaths of the American people by not restricting more severely early on.  She despicably said:  "The president fiddles while people are dying."  But, it was she who was inviting Americans to visit Chinatown at the moment the president was already closing us off from China.  The people in Chinatown, be it in San Francisco or Lower Manhattan, were the most likely carriers, traveling back and forth to see family in China.  It is Pelosi who should assume guilt.  It was her policy of always being contrary to Trump that ended up infecting more people.  Adam Schiff will open up an investigation of President Trump and his administration with the hope of damaging the president.  Actually, it is Pelosi who should be investigated!

Corona Meltdowns.  [Scroll down]  It does not matter whether [Nancy Pelosi's] political and ethical decline was a result of her deep pathological hatred of Donald Trump.  Who cares that her paranoia arose over the so-called "Squad" that might align with socialist Bernie Sanders to mesmerize Democrats to march over the cliff into McGovern-like oblivion?  All concede that very few octogenarians have the stamina and clarity to put in the 16-hour work-days and transcontinental travel required by a Speaker of the House.  Instead, all that matters is that for a nation in extremis she is now puerile, even unhinged — and increasingly dangerous.  In retrospect, the public will remember how in fear and confusion she reversed course to spearhead impeachment, outsourced the task in the House of Representatives to its most incompetent and perfidious members — Representatives Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) and Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) — and wasted weeks of the country's precious energy and time as it was on the cusp of an epidemic.  Pelosi then quickly weaponized the viral crisis in hopes that COVID-19 could do what Robert Mueller's dream team and impeachment had not done — destroy the administration of Donald Trump before the November 2020 election.

Republicans Blast Pelosi's Partisan Coronavirus Panel.  Republicans are hitting back hard at the Democrats' latest attempt to hobble Trump's presidency.  On Thursday [4/2/2020], Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the creation of the House Select Committee on the Coronavirus Crisis, a panel that will purportedly provide oversight of coronavirus stimulus spending.  Republicans view the panel as a purely partisan move that isn't necessary because there are already numerous oversight measures in the $2 trillion stimulus bill passed by Congress last week.  Byron York in The Washington Examiner suggested that the real reason for the new panel is to find fault with the president's response to the pandemic.  "Pelosi's announcement came a day after House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff called for a 9/11-style independent commission to investigate 'mistakes' in the virus response," York wrote.

Whose Side Is Nancy Pelosi Really On?  Unfortunately, and to dismay of many, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has not retreated from national attention.  Obviously, personal attacks on this president are nothing new.  But Pelosi's recent comments took things to a new low and exceeded all bounds of human decency.  Pelosi blamed the president for the tragic loss of life resulting from this virus.  Her statements are not only vile but un-American.  They also make it difficult to tell whose side Pelosi is really on.  "As the president fiddles, people are dying," Pelosi said last Sunday.  "We just have to take every precaution."  The vile nature of her comments cannot be overstated. [...] Not only is Pelosi's comment disgusting; it is also incorrect.  Trump's decision in January to bar travel from China to the United States likely slowed the spread of the virus and saved many lives.

House Democrats reveal plan to attack security of military votes.  [I]n the Coronavirus relief package recently passed by Congress, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her fellow Democrats tried to include language making it easier to commit vote fraud with the ballots of our military stationed overseas.  House Democrats' proposed additions to the Families First Coronavirus Response Act included changes to election law that would provide cover for individuals and activists yearning for federal protection for voting fraud schemes that could include military ballot manipulation. [...] House Democrats used the word "temporary" twenty-two times in their legislative requests.  But all changes to election law were to "go into effect in the November 2020 election and for each succeeding federal election."  Pelosi and team wanted to make sure provisions imperiling election integrity, particularly military votes, were permanent.

No More Pork-Laden Stimulus Bills, Please.  Nothing cries out more for giving the president a line item veto for federal spending than the 880-page coronavirus stimulus bill that Speaker Pelosi put together from her Socialist Wish List filing cabinet and pasted into her stimulus bill.  Rep James Clyburn (D-SC) had already signaled the plan was to load the Democrat agenda into the bill.  Ultimately the taxpayer was saddled with the costs of many programs completely unrelated to managing the crisis.  Did the Speaker expect to get the entire progressive agenda which included legitimizing voter fraud?  No, she sent up a lot of throwaways, but the pattern has always been to force acceptance of some of the agenda each time there is a crisis, attaching as much as possible to each "must pass" bill.  Each side then proclaims how much they surrendered by giving up their throwaways.  Because the pork is buried in massive bills, the assumption is no one will read it before passage.  With each crisis, the country is then moved incrementally to the left and national debt increases by unnecessary amounts.

President Trump Stands Tall.  The Democrats seem more interested in damaging President Trump politically than they are in taking care of the American people.  Speaker Pelosi tried to attach all kinds of extraneous, irrelevant addenda to the relief bill (support for Planned Parenthood, voting rights modifications intended to make things more favorable to Dems in future elections, money for NPR and the Kennedy Center, etc.), all of which delayed the bill — needlessly — for a week.  As millions of businesses close their doors and tens of millions of Americans lose their jobs, Pelosi and the Democrats continue to look upon the entire situation as nothing more than an opportunity for a power grab.  The bill went through in bi-partisan fashion a week later than it should have, and most, but not all, of the Democratic fat was trimmed out.  But it didn't have to be that way at all.

Nancy Pelosi under fire for controversial stock moves.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has made a tidy profit on the stock market since the deadly Wuhan virus outbreak began in January.  Critics say the timing of her husband's stock purchases were suspicious because they occurred while Pelosi was learning, in closed-door Congressional meetings, about the potential coronavirus impacts.  Around mid-January, Pelosi's husband, Paul, had made nearly $2 million in just 10 weeks through savvy trading of Amazon and Facebook stock options, Barron's reported.

They're the ultimate Monday morning quarterbacks.
With virus crisis raging, Pelosi and Schiff ramp up new Trump investigations.  The team is back in action.  On Thursday [4/2/2020], Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the creation of the House Select Committee on the Coronavirus Crisis.  The new panel will have the authority to investigate any aspect of the virus emergency and the Trump administration's handling of it.  Pelosi's announcement came a day after House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff called for a 9/11-style independent commission to investigate "mistakes" in the virus response.

Donald Trump Trashes Nancy Pelosi Coronavirus 'Witch Hunt'.  President Donald Trump ripped House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday [4/2/2020] for creating a new select investigative committee to look into his handling of the coronavirus.  "This is not the time for politics.  Endless, partisan investigations, here we go again," Trump said at the White House press briefing.

Pelosi creates House coronavirus oversight committee.  Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced she was forming a special House panel to oversee the distribution of billions of federal dollars dedicated to the response to the coronavirus outbreak.  Pelosi, a California Democrat, said Thursday [4/2/2020] the panel would "prevent waste, fraud, and abuse" and would be bipartisan.  She appointed the House majority whip, South Carolina Democrat James Clyburn, to oversee the panel.

Pelosi pushes 'SALT shakeup' stimulus that could reduce her tax bill and enrich her wealthy district.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is pushing for a new stimulus bill that would roll back the state and local tax deduction (SALT), a proposal that would predominantly help wealthy individuals — including most residents in Pelosi's district and perhaps even Pelosi herself. [...] California's 12th congressional district, which Pelosi represents, is among the wealthiest in the U.S., with a median income of $113,919, according to census data.  The average household income is $168,456 — meaning most residents would benefit from any significant cut to SALT.  Pelosi and her husband have a property tax liability of approximately $198,337.62 considering their two homes, a winery and two commercial properties, public records show, indicating that the couple could reap benefits on roughly $188,000 given a full SALT repeal.

Trump talked about COVID-19 threat in SOTU speech Nancy Pelosi ripped to shreds.  On January 31, Trump issued a ban on travel from China, and we are now reminded that the president talked about the coronavirus four days later during his State of the Union address — you know, the one Pelosi stood up before the American people and ripped in half.  "Protecting Americans' health also means fighting infectious diseases," Trump said in the Feb. 4 speech.  "We're coordinating with the Chinese government and working closely together on the coronavirus outbreak in China.  My administration will take all necessary steps to safeguard our citizens from this threat."  But even before all of this is the little-reported fact that on January 29, Trump formed the White House Coronavirus Task Force — the first confirmed case in the U.S. came on January 21, in Washington state.

Nancy Pelosi:  Cancer on the body politic.  "Nancy Pelosi is a cancer on the body politic."  Those are the words of Mark Levin and he is profoundly correct.  It is actually an understatement.  This woman has dedicated her entire recent term to impeaching President Trump over a phone call.  She stupidly bought into Adam Schiff's lunacy that they had the evidence that the president had threatened the president of Ukraine with a quid pro quo — either investigate the Clinton campaign's meddling in the 2016 election or else. [...] Then came the Wuhan virus.  Oh my, were the Democrats thrilled.  This would be the crisis they could use, manipulate to their desired end.  This is how utterly stupid these Democrats are!  This is how malicious they are; they are ready and willing to destroy the United States economy to take down a president they abhor.

McCarthy rips Pelosi, says Dems were 'preoccupied with impeachment instead of protecting this country'.  House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., blasted Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Tuesday night [3/31/2020] for being more concerned with impeaching President Trump earlier this year than preparing the U.S. to fight the coronavirus contagion.  "They were preoccupied with impeachment instead of protecting this country," McCarthy said on "Hannity".  "That's exactly the only thing they focused upon.  And then you watch Nancy Pelosi, I watched her sit there and say those words, and it was very upsetting to me as an American, not as an elected official but as an American."

Nancy Pelosi Dismissed Coronavirus Threat in February Chinatown Visit: 'Everything Is Fine Here'.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wants to investigate President Trump for his actions in the lead-up to the coronavirus outbreak in the U.S., but in February, she dismissed the threat with a visit to San Francisco's Chinatown.  KPIX documented Pelosi's February 24 visit to a fortune cookie factory and retailers:  [Video clip]

Does Nancy Pelosi know about the coronavirus outbreak?  Someone ought to tell Speaker Nancy Pelosi about the coronavirus outbreak, because her laser focus on pushing her political agenda suggests she's unaware of it.  The latest evidence:  She wants to "retroactively" roll back Congress' 2017 cap on tax deductions for state and local taxes (SALT), The New York Times reports.  She claims lifting the cap would address the economic fallout of COVID-19.  She wants her "fix" to be part of Congress' next rescue plan.  But her idea has nothing to do with boosting the economy and everything to do with helping Dems in blue states, like California, New York, New Jersey and Illinois.  More than half the benefits of a repeal would go to folks making more than $1 million.  Don't Dems oppose tax breaks for the rich?

McConnell: What's the rush on Phase 4 coronavirus relief, except for Pelosi's hobby-horse agenda?  Two key Senate Republicans declared Nancy Pelosi's tax break for blue-state millionaires dead on arrival — if she has the nerve to actually propose it.  The chair of the Finance Committee, which would have to approve the elimination of the state and local tax (SALT) deduction cap, won't bother to review it at all.  A spokesperson for Chuck Grassley wondered why this would be the time to bring up a tax break for millionaires in high-tax states like California and New York.

Nancy Pelosi urged people to congregate in Chinatown in late February.  Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi critiqued President Trump for his failure to imagine the disastrous effect of the COVID-19 coronavirus on the American public and infrastructure, when in fact she failed to imagine the same thing.  On February 24th, Pelosi walked through San Francisco's Chinatown with a large entourage, encouraging locals to come down and join her.  Pelosi said:  "Come to Chinatown.  Here we are.  We're careful, safe, and come join us."  She was more concerned with virtue signalling and combating "racism" than she was with securing the safety of Americans.

Trump rips Pelosi after she criticizes his coronavirus response.  President Trump tore into House Speaker Nancy Pelosi after she accused him of dragging his feet in the federal government's response to the coronavirus pandemic.  "It's a sad thing.  Look, she's a sick puppy, in my opinion," Trump told Fox & Friends on Monday [3/30/2020].  "She's got a lot of problems.  That's a horrible thing to say."  Pelosi said Sunday that Trump's denial about the seriousness of the virus "was deadly."

Marsha Blackburn:  Pelosi 'Fiddled Around' with 'Sham Impeachment,' Wasting Time in Coronavirus Response.  Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for her accusations that President Donald Trump did not move fast enough to respond to the coronavirus pandemic.  "Nancy Pelosi is accusing Trump of not responding fast enough to the Chinese coronavirus.  This is the same person that fiddled around with a sham impeachment that wasted valuable time..." she tweeted.

Lindsey Graham Goes Off after Pelosi Blames Trump for People Dying.  Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) joined Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures this morning [3/29/2020].  Maria asked Senator Graham about Nancy Pelosi's disgusting Sunday morning comments blaming President Trump for people dying from coronavirus.  Senator Graham went off.  [Video clip]

Pelosi calls for probe into Trump's handling of virus: 'What did he know and when did he know it?'.  Without any pushback from CNN, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi suggested Sunday that every deceased coronavirus patient's death is attributable to President Donald Trump.  And in issuing this bold insinuation, she told lie after lie after lie.  "The president, his denial at the beginning, was deadly," she said to CNN's Jake Tapper during a discussion Sunday morning about mounting coronavirus deaths in the states.  There was no "denial at the beginning."  While the president offered optimism, as he's always wont to do, his administration has been taking actions in regard to the global coronavirus pandemic since January, when House Democrats like Pelosi were busy trying to impeach him over highly dubious allegations of wrongdoing.

Little of Pelosi's Wish List Made It Into COVID-19 Relief Bill.  That's a Relief in Itself.  There's a lot in those 880 pages, and much of it is problematic:  The bill is neither targeted and temporary, nor directed exclusively at the coronavirus [...] Before the bill made it through the Senate, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., temporarily derailed it by insisting that any relief bill include a left-wing wish list unrelated to the ongoing pandemic and the economic slowdown that it's causing.

Coronavirus Causing a Right Turn.  [Scroll down]  Laser-focused on the emotional and financial well-being of each and every American, Trump is seeking to get relief funds into their hands ASAP.  Insidiously evil Nancy Pelosi held up the process.  She is callously exploiting the suffering of Americans to force Trump to sign a relief bill with funding for unrelated radical leftist agenda items.  Pelosi wants wind and solar tax credits, mandates on corporate board diversity, advancing abortion, mandating the LGBTQ agenda, the Green New Deal and much more.  Sen. Ted Cruz's response was, "What [...] does that have to do with this crisis?!"  I pray that Democrat party loyalists will finally realize that their party as they knew it is gone.  It has morphed into an anti-Christian and anti-American enemy within, driven by a spirit of anti-Christ.  The only thing, I repeat, the only thing Democrats care about is transforming America into their socialist/communist dream.

Republicans Cave To Pelosi, Unanimously Vote To Give $350 Million To Refugees, Migrants.  Republican and Democratic senators unanimously voted to pass a coronavirus relief bill late Wednesday that gives $350,000,000 to assist refugees and migrants.  Earlier this week, it was revealed that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's relief package would include $300,000,000 for refugee assistance.  The new bill, approved by the Senate and now headed to the House, includes an additional $50 million on top of Pelosi's initial $300 million for refugees.

Senate Passes Coronavirus Bill, Proving Pelosi Gambled With Americans' Lives and Lost.  In the wee hours of Wednesday evening [3/25/2020], the U.S. Senate finally passed the $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus bill after a great deal of Democrat stalling and a futile effort by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to put forward a separate bill jam-packed with liberal Christmas wish-list items.  The bill provides crucial relief to businesses struggling with the social distancing strategy of stopping the spread of the coronavirus.  It now heads to the House.  The stimulus bill is far from perfect, but its passage unmasked Pelosi's tactics as a disgraceful waste of time during this crisis.  House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) slammed the speaker for her attempt to jam her liberal pipe dreams down Americans' throats in the midst of a crisis.

The Editor says...
"The wee hours" are the first few hours after midnight.  There are no "wee hours" in the evening.

How do you solve a problem like Pelosi?  Nancy Pelosi has long been a thorn in the side of not just conservatives but the House itself.  For reasons no Republican could ever grasp, she is a heroine to the left, despite her many serious failures.  She is a traitor to her own district; she has never lifted a finger to deal with San Francisco's catastrophic homeless disaster.  She does not even admit it exists!  She seems to think she is some kind of monarch, a queen bee.  In fact, she is a vicious elitist.  She and her husband, like Sen. Dianne Feinstein and her husband, are the ultimate inside traders who have become very rich over their years in public office. [...] The Pelosi family are like the Gambino crime family.  They get their way, they get rich, they care about nothing else.  Nancy may pretend she cares about climate change but she flies across the country weekly and charges the taxpayer not only for her private jet but for her massive liquor bill.  She pretends to be a practicing Catholic but is rabidly pro-abortion.  In short, she's a nasty piece of work.

After first lying about her corrupt bill, Pelosi has finally agreed to abandon it.  On Sunday [3/22/2020], the news was that Democrats in the Senate, having worked to draft a bipartisan bill to help Americans through the coronavirus crisis, received orders from Rep. Nancy Pelosi to reject it.  On Monday, the Democrats doubled down on that rejection.  Also, on Monday, Nancy proposed a 1,100-page bill that did provide some help for America's workers, small businesses, and corporations.  Most of the bill, though, was given over to Democrat wish-list items.  If coronavirus had hit America with a Democrat in the White House and a Democrat majority in Congress, by Monday's end, a new law would have
  •   raised the federal minimum wage to $15,
  •   subsidized student loan debt,
  •   provided more funds for PBS,
  •   funded the IRS and the Postal Service,
  •   mandated race and gender diversity for corporate boards,
  •   implemented same-day voter registration

as well as a host of other initiatives pandering to social justice, environmental, and union concerns — and all of it would ostensibly have been done to protect American workers from coronavirus's ravages on the economy.

Pelosi Suffers Massive Political Hit — Abandons House Scheme.  You can tell when Speaker Pelosi recognizes a political backlash for her manipulative schemes because it's the only time she blitzes the media.  After suffering a very large political hit, beyond the capability of the media to defend, Pelosi said today the House will take up the Senate coronavirus bill.  The writing was on the wall late yesterday as people started digging into the 1,400 page House proposal and exposing all of the far-left ideological efforts within it.  Billions were earmarked for nonsense progressive projects and the House scheme was fraught with social engineering that had nothing to do with assisting workers and businesses.  Even Pelosi's own party started telling leadership they had gone way too far with the assembled list of nonsense legislation.  The speaker recognized if she did not quickly make a tactical retreat her party would be crushed by exposure of the brazen politics they were attempting.  The reach was so extreme, the media could not protect her.  In an effort to save a horrid face, the speaker was forced to blitz the media alone while all other house members watched to see how she could recover.

Pelosi Caves.  Nancy Pelosi has thrown in the towel on her attempt to misuse the Wuhan virus epidemic to sneak partisan legislation that has never been able to make it through Congress into law. [...] One can only imagine how bad the Democrats' polling must have been to cause such a hasty retreat.  The Democrats had no one behind them except their most extremist supporters, like the New York Times.

NOT hyperbole:  Pelosi's Dems would rather airplanes get better gas mileage than save Americans amid coronavirus shutdown.  It should be more than obvious by now that Nancy Pelosi and her Garbage Party are exploiting the coronavirus outbreak a) to win politically; and b) to hurt President Trump.  Only, they're hurting Americans instead.  Operating under the Democratic mandate of "Never let a good crisis go to waste," the Speaker of the House has been holding up coronavirus relief legislation that, at a time when businesses have shuttered and workers laid off by the millions, would provide direct aid to both.  For no reason other that naked political power.

Democrats block coronavirus lifeline stimulus in despicable partisan maneuver.  It should have been 100%.  Every Senator on Capitol Hill should have been able to recognize the dire straits America finds itself in with the Wuhan Coronavirus causing economic havoc and putting millions of Americans at great risk.  Unfortunately, it's 2020 and partisanship supersedes the needs of the American people, at least in the eyes of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic Party she controls.

Nancy Pelosi's Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Decision To Hold The Country Hostage.  The weekend began with a bipartisan plan.  People were hopeful. [...] And then Pelosi came back to town from her week-long vacation and announced the rare, rare bipartisan cooperation the country had seen in the Senate would end with her — and election politics would begin. [...] This, it is clear, is not an emergency virus bill.  It is a Democratic election wish list, politically poisoned at a time when hundreds are dying, thousands are losing their businesses, and millions are out of work in the United States.  "This," House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn told Democrats Thursday, "is a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision."  It's truly an incredible political act by the speaker, and the entire Democratic Senate fell in step behind her.

GOP details Pelosi's $2.5 trillion 'socialist wish list' in coronavirus aid package.  House Republicans on Monday night offered a detailed critique of what they called House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's "socialist wish list" in House Democrats' $2.5 trillion proposal for responding to the coronavirus outbreak.  "Speaker Pelosi unveiled legislation aimed at exploiting the COVID-19 public health crisis by attempting to force the inclusion of a socialist wish list of policies that have nothing to do with the public health and economic emergency," said House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, Louisiana Republican.

Vile: Nancy Pelosi's daughter Christine endorses felony assault on Rand Paul.  The context of the sick tweet, according to Fox News, was someone stating that Sen. Mitt Romney, upon hearing of Paul's illness, decided to self-quarantine after hearing about Paul's misfortune in order to protect his wife, who has a medical condition that leaves her especially vulnerable.  Instead of cheering Romney, which would have been a reasonable person's response, she decided to go low, [...] by bringing up the violent 2017 assault on Paul by a hate-crazed neighbor, whose attack left Paul with five broken ribs and the loss of part of his lung — in order to cheer the criminal.  And this, right at the time when Paul is now afflicted by the coronavirus.  Normal people wish anyone with the coronavirus, even political opponents, well.

Twitter pulls tweet from Nancy Pelosi's daughter about Rand Paul.  Twitter confirmed the company locked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's daughter out of her account for a short period of time due to a tweet she sent about Republican Sen. Rand Paul that it said amounted to an endorsement of violence.  "The account owner was temporarily locked out for violating the Twitter rules against glorification of violence," a Twitter spokesperson told the Washington Examiner on Tuesday [3/24/2020].  Christine Pelosi tweeted Sunday that the man who allegedly attacked the Kentucky senator in 2018 was "right" for doing so.

Nancy Pelosi Proposes 1,400-Page Coronavirus Bill Stuffed with Special Interest Goodies.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi debuted a 1,120-page coronavirus rescue bill after Democrats tanked the Senate proposal on Sunday night.  The bill includes a wish list of Democrats' pet issues including:  [#1] Increased fuel emission standards for airlines receiving funds and carbon offsets [...] [#2] Payment for up to $10,000 in student loans [...] [#3] Same-day voter registration, early voting, voting by mail, ballot harvesting [...] [#4] Preserving collective bargaining powers for unions [...] [#5] The expansion of wind and solar tax credits [...] [#6] Requirements for federal and corporate gender and racial diversity data [...] [#7] Post Office Bailout [...] [#8] Automatic extension of nonimmigrant visas [...] [#9] Restricting colleges from providing information about citizenship status [...] [#10] Money for Planned Parenthood

Schumer and Pelosi Try to Add Fuel Emission Standards For Airlines, More Wind and Solar Tax Credits to Coronavirus Stimulus Package.  Pelosi and Schumer continued to play politics on Monday [3/23/2020] amid the Coronavirus shutdown and demanded a wish list of Socialist policies that have nothing to do with the global pandemic.  Pelosi and Schumer are now pushing these demands:
  [#1]   Unprecedented collective bargaining powers for unions
  [#2]   Increased fuel emissions standards for airlines
  [#3]   Expansion of wind and solar tax credits
Even worse, not only are these demands totally unrelated to the Coronavirus pandemic, they could prevent companies from participating in the loan programs — directly causing unnecessary layoffs, according to a senior GOP aide.

Journey to Surrealville:  What's really fuelling Pelosi's shutdown of America's relief package?  After days of unusual comity between Republicans and Democrats in the coronavirus crisis, the big congressional economic aid package to help hospitals, laid off workers, and battered small businesses all came crashing down as Nancy Pelosi jetted in from vacation, blocking the set-to-go bill over the weekend.  In place of that, she came up with a 1,400-nightmare political goody bag for the left — everything from ballot-harvesting to corporate diversity requirements to greenie airline regulations to a $15 minimum wage and a lot of other horrors — attempting to slip through the entire panoply of laws her party wants to enact but can't get passed.  It was Pelosi's and other Democrats' doing, all right — just look at how the New York Times changed its headline sequence, first putting out the facts about Democrat road-blocking, then, likely after some Pelosian phone calls, softening the blame, and then declaring the whole thing a bipartisan morass.  Yeah, sure.

Dems demanding new union bargaining powers, solar tax credits in new coronavirus aid package.  Congressional Democrats are demanding an "ideological wish list" including new collective bargaining powers for unions as they hold up a nearly $2 trillion economic package of coronavirus relief, Republicans said Monday [3/23/2020].  The Democrats' belated list of demands includes new, tighter fuel emission standards for airlines and an expansion of wind and solar tax credits, a senior Republican aide said.

Republicans want a lifeline; Democrats want to remake the country.  The cynical partisan opportunism of Democrats exhibited during the coronavirus economic crisis has been breathtaking.  Rather than move forward with quick, no-frills, massive $1.8 trillion dollar rescue plan, Democrats decided to hold the country hostage by trying to cram through a slew of lefty goodies that have absolutely nothing to do with the pending economic crisis.  As corporate boards struggle to figure out ways to keep their companies afloat, Nancy Pelosi is demanding that they spend time filling gender and racial quotas, down to "subcommittee assignments."  As the transportation sector wrestles with a once-in-a-century economic disaster, Democrats are trying to compel airlines — who have seen a 90 percent drop in customers — to cut greenhouse gas emissions every year until they hit a 50 percent reduction.  If Pelosi keeps this up, airlines are going to see a 100 percent reduction soon enough.

Pelosi 'Stimulus' Bill Imposes Nationwide 'Ballot Harvesting' Without 'Any Limit'.  Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's new stimulus bill would mandate nationwide "ballot harvesting," allowing party operatives to return other people's ballots to polling places without "any limit" on the number of ballots.  "Ballot harvesting" was legalized in California in 2016, and first used in the 2018 midterm elections.  It allows anyone to drop off someone else's mail-in ballot at a polling station.  There is no process for vetting or verifying those delivering the ballots — no background checks or identification requirements.  Democrats dropped hundreds of thousands of ballots off at polling stations in 2018, helping Democrats as they flipped seven Republican seats.

Here is the Far-Left Wish, List Nancy Pelosi Just Blew Everything Up For.  According to a source close to the process on Capitol Hill, in order to move forward with any kind of [coronavirus emergency] relief package, Pelosi and her far-left Democrat caucus will demand the following be included:
  •   Publication of corporate pay statistics by race and race statistics for all corporate boards
  •   A bail out on all current debt at the Postal Service
  •   Required early voting
  •   Required same day voter registration
  •   Provisions on official time for union collective bargaining
  •   Full offset of airline emissions by 2025
  •   Publication and reporting of greenhouse gas statistics for individual flights
  •   Retirement plans for community newspaper employees
  •   Federal $15 minimum wage
  •   Permanent paid leave
  •   Study on climate change mitigation efforts

Democrats Block Coronavirus Bill That Provides Lifeline To Economy, Families.  Democrats blocked a massive $1.8 trillion stimulus spending bill to protect the U.S. economy and provide relief to American families who are suffering as a result of the coronavirus outbreak. [...] Townhall political editor Guy Benson reported that Senate sources said that Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was responsible for tanking the bill.  "Talking to some Senate GOP sources.  They seem stunned and angry," Benson said.  "I'm told there was lots of bipartisan input into the legislative outline & emerging specifics — including an agreement in principle on broad strokes.  Then Pelosi showed up and threw a partisan grenade."

Nancy Pelosi Nixes Bipartisan Talks on Coronavirus Package.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said on Sunday that she has decided to move forward with her own emergency coronavirus relief package.  Pelosi spoke just hours before the Senate was scheduled to take a procedural vote that would lead towards a final vote on a bipartisan economic relief package.  The bill would provide economic relief after the coronavirus epidemic ravaged the country's economy.

'People vs Pelosi' trends when even the left has had enough.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has sparked a heated backlash as she appeared to be against considering cash payments for Americans in the midst of the coronavirus crisis.  The California Democrat even has members of her own party criticizing her lack of support for measures that would get cash into the hands of Americans as the economy falters under the global pandemic.  The fact that President Donald Trump and his fellow Republicans have floated the idea as a possibility has only angered the left even more.

10 Ways the Left Has Politicized the Coronavirus Pandemic.  [#3] Pelosi's puts Hyde Amendment loophole in coronavirus bill:  What does abortion have to do with protecting the public from coronavirus?  Nothing.  But that didn't stop Nancy Pelosi from trying to sneak a loophole for the Hyde Amendment, which prevents federal dollars from being used to pay for abortions, and other Democrat goodies into the coronavirus stimulus package.  Republicans called her out for it, but the left tried to spin the situation differently.  Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claimed in an interview on Fox News that "right now we are hearing that some of the fights and some of the gridlock is because people are trying to put pro-life provisions" into the coronavirus legislation.  Democrats always saw the coronavirus as a political opportunity, and they never miss a chance to exploit a crisis.

Pelosi Stutters, Slurs Words and Struggles to Speak as She Fights to Keep Her Dentures in Her Face.  Speaker Pelosi raised eyebrows again on Thursday after she could barely spit out a sentence.  Pelosi slurred her words and struggled to speak as she fought to keep her dentures from flying out of her face.  Pelosi looked and sounded just like Joe Biden during a presser on the Coronavirus on Thursday [3/12/2020].  [Video clip]

Sasse Rips Pelosi for Trying to Smuggle Hyde Amendment Loophole into Coronavirus Package.  Senator Ben Sasse (R., Neb.) slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) and Democrats for reportedly trying to ensure federal funding for abortion as part of the coronavirus economic stimulus plan.  "While schools are closing and hospitals are gearing up, Speaker Pelosi is waging unnecessary culture wars.  Speaker Pelosi should be fighting the coronavirus pandemic, not politicizing emergency funding by fighting against the bipartisan Hyde Amendment," Sasse told National Review in a statement. [...] Pelosi attempted to secure a funding stream of up to $1 billion for reimbursing laboratory claims.  According to White House officials who spoke with the Daily Caller, that provision would establish a precedent under which health claims for all procedures, including abortion, could be reimbursed with federal funds.  That precedent would render the Hyde Amendment, which blocks taxpayer funding for abortion clinics, obsolete.

White House Officials Allege Speaker Pelosi Pushed To Include Hyde Amendment Loophole Into Coronavirus Stimulus Plan.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi sought to include a potential way to guarantee federal funding for abortion into the coronavirus economic stimulus plan, according to multiple senior White House officials.  Speaking to the Daily Caller, those officials alleged that while negotiating the stimulus with U.S. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, Pelosi tried to lobby for "several" provisions that stalled bipartisan commitment to the effort.  One was a mandate for up to $1 billion to reimburse laboratory claims, which White House officials say would set a precedent of health spending without protections outlined in the Hyde Amendment.

Here's How Eric Holder Helped the Obama Administration Transform the Democratic Party into a Party of Thugs.  Nancy Pelosi sat before a group of Northwestern University students on Monday morning [3/8/2020] and said, "Civilization as we know it is at stake."  No, she wasn't talking about the coronavirus, she was talking about if President Trump wins the election.  This is the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives explaining the constitution to young, impressionable minds.  How did we get to the point where Democrats would send spies into their opponents political campaign, fabricate a scandal to prevent him from winning, and spend his entire first term trying to remove him from office?

Nancy Pelosi: 'Civilization as We Know It Is at Stake' in 2020 Election.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Monday waxed hyperbolic about the 2020 presidential election, telling an audience that "civilization as we know it is at stake."  Pelosi made the remark during a speech at Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts, [3/9/2020] according to Fox News correspondent Rob DiRienzo.

Pelosi: 'We have the most dangerous person in the history of our country sitting in the White House'.  No other American has been as dangerous to the country as President Trump, according to the speaker of the House.  Nancy Pelosi blasted the president in an interview with Variety published Tuesday [3/3/2020] and urged Democrats to come together for the 2020 election to ensure that Trump becomes a single-term president. [...] The California Democrat said her biggest beef with the president was that he does not respect the Constitution.  She claimed that Trump's pattern of lying could harm children around the country, a line she won't let be crossed.

The Editor says...
To see an example of a habitually lying U.S. President, look no further than Barack H. Obama.  Likewise, Obama has no regard at all for the Constitution.

A Bernie Sanders nomination is Nancy Pelosi's nightmare.  [I]f Pelosi simply capitulates and accepts her party's new socialist overlords, the consequences for the entire party, up and down the ballot, could be catastrophic. [...] This isn't just about 2020 either.  It's an ideological battle for the future of the Democratic Party.  If Pelosi remains silent and Sanders wins the nomination, she will have lost that battle to Ocasio-Cortez and the other radicals.

Nancy Pelosi says she's all good with socialist Bernie being the Democrat nominee.  Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the House, says she's comfortable with having socialist Senator Bernie Sanders at the top of the Democratic Party's presidential ticket.  Pelosi also dismissed speculation that she's terrified of Democrats losing control of the House of Representatives if Bernie became her party's nominee.  Congresswoman Pelosi made the remarks Wednesday [2/26/2020] in response to questions from reporters.

The Democrat Left is cruel and sadistic.  Everyone who watched the SOTU speech saw how disrespectful, how rude the Democrats in the room were.  Like small children who have never learned the most basic of manners, they delighted in their own beastly behavior as a group.  They were clearly proud of themselves.  How does a large party of alleged adults so enjoy acting like spoiled toddlers?  Because they are perpetually immature; they are happy only when they get their way.  Pelosi's planned stunt at the SOTU proves only that she revels in her own childishness.

The Rise of Democratic Idiocracy.  [Scroll down]  She rips up her copy of President Trump's SOTU speech and it's okay.  Nary a word of criticism from any Democratic politician or the liberal media.  (One can only imagine the horrified outcry had a Paul Ryan done the same to President Obama.)  This from a person who says she is Catholic and there is no hate in her heart for the president.  For Pelosi and the idiocrats, it's fine to invoke religion when rationalizing their preferred behavior, but when pinned down about the conflict between their support for abortion and Catholic values, Pelosi and her ilk quickly retreat to that tired argument of supporting established law vs. holding their own private personal opinion.  "Established law" can easily be changed by a vote of conscience, if it mattered to you.  Sort of like the way the Jim Crow laws were changed.  Got that, Nancy?

That's what we said about Obama.  Get over it.
Pelosi: America Cannot Withstand 'Destruction' Trump Would Do in a Second Term.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told CNN's Christiane Amanpour in an exclusive interview that America cannot withstand the "destruction" President Donald Trump would do if he wins a second term.  Pelosi said, "I can't even envision a situation where he would be reelected.  But we are not — we don't take anything for granted."

The Editor says...
Hey Nancy, if you can't imagine any way Trump could be re-elected, how about placing a wager on it?  For example, you'll resign immediately if Trump is re-elected.  Now can you imagine it?

Nancy Pelosi Lashes Out at Reporter for Saying President Trump was Acquitted.  Nancy Pelosi traveled to Munich, Germany this weekend to trash Trump while overseas.  During her interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour Pelosi refused to believe President Trump was overwhelmingly acquitted in the US Senate in the sham impeachment.  She's nuts.

Translation:  Biden is the pre-ordained establishment candidate.
Pelosi says she is 'not counting Joe Biden out'.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi thinks it's too soon to rule out a Joe Biden presidency.  The California Democrat said in an interview with CNN that the former vice president still has a chance to become the Democratic nominee despite his lackluster showings at the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primary, where he finished fourth and fifth, respectively.  She said that although the party has come down to the "winnowing process," she still sees "everything as an opportunity."

Granny Winebox Is Going to Hand This Election to Trump.  The House investigation and impeachment of the president last year were, by any objective measure, monumental failures.  Trump emerged from the tawdry spectacle stronger than ever.  After being harangued and slandered by every Democrat on Capitol Hill throughout the impeachment drama, the president's approval ratings actually got better.  It was the radioactive spider that bit him and gave him superpowers.  Now the Democrats are looking for more spiders. [...] Pelosi should be leading the party in a direction that at least gives the appearance of wanting to find cohesion and a path to victory.  Instead, she wants to revisit her greatest failure, which just happened to have wrapped up a week ago.

Nancy Pelosi Turns Into Bumbling Mess When Trying To Say Basic Sentence.  [Video clip]

Joe Biden's My Guy.  What political party does the Democratic Party put you in mind of?  Their leader until they settle on a presidential candidate is the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi.  She is 80 years of age and consults a plastic surgeon as frequently as she consults her hairdresser, according to my sources.  Critics remarked on how infrequently during the State of the Union she smiled.  Actually, with her skin stretched across her face so tautly, she cannot smile.  She can hardly blink.  Have a heart, fellows and fellowesses.  She would smile and blink more if she could.  I am told she has a very good sense of humor.

Petulant Nancy Pelosi is everything wrong with Democratic Party.  Nancy Pelosi looked like a malfunctioning Stepford wife as she sat behind President Trump during his State of the Union Address last week.  Her lower face twitched, she muttered to herself, shook her head, smiled inappropriately, gazed around, chewed her lip or remained glued to her seat during standing ovations in honor of special guests.  It was a bizarre enough performance before she rose to her feet and dramatically ripped up her copy of the president's speech in what will go down in history as the most unseemly display of partisanship in this partisan era.  That moment was when the myth of the "master political strategist" was busted, and we saw Pelosi, 79, for what she is.  Pretending to be classy and prayerful when she is full of petty hatreds and is incapable of holding her party together, a woman who parades her Catholicism while advocating no-holds-barred abortions, feigning to pray for the president while deriding him as "sedated."

Pelosi and Rumpelstiltskin.  [Scroll down]  I am actually grateful that Pelosi showed her genuine colors when she tore up President Trump's State of the Union address.  First, it is an illegal act according to 18 U.S. Code 2071, but given that the Democrats cast the law aside when they see fit, this should surprise no one.  But it should enlighten many who, heretofore, were not paying close attention.  That she could shred the accomplishments of the Americans who were invited to the SOTU event is a continuing display of the contempt Democrats have for the people.  I would say that in her wrath, Pelosi has shown America that she does not represent the people and that her party has nothing but disdain for American values and American lives.

Powerful American stories ripped to shreds by Nancy Pelosi.  Nancy Pelosi wants this video banned from social media; but instead, the Republicans are making commercials out of it.  [Video clip]

Pelosi Tries And Fails To Badger Facebook Into Nixing An Edited Video Of Her SOTU Speech Rip.  Facebook and Twitter are refusing to bow to requests from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to nix an edited video of the California Democrat tearing up President Donald Trump's State of the Union speech.  The edited video was posted on both social media platforms after the Tuesday night SOTU in which Pelosi can be seen ripping a copy of the speech.  The video is spliced together to make it appear that Pelosi ripped the speech as Trump is saluting a Tuskegee airman in the audience.

Pelosi's Lack of Decorum Is A Revelation.  Professor Jonathan Turley of Georgetown University Law School wrote in The Hill of the Speaker's State of the Union behavior, "Pelosi has shredded decades of tradition, decorum and civility that the nation could use now more than ever."  He also described her with the words "petty," "distempered," and "inappropriate."  She failed to introduce the President properly, and then was particularly out of line when she tore up his speech after grimacing and showing petulant expressions throughout the President's speech.  Turley asserted that she should resign from office as the Speaker as her breaches of decorum at the State of Union were the worst of all those he has criticized over the years. [...] Her lack of decorum and the unconscionable, implacable hostility of the Democrats of the House and Senate reveals the extreme political animosity that presently afflicts our country.

Pelosi Is Down but Not Out.  [Scroll down]  There she sat, watching her own party of curmudgeons sit stone-faced as the president beamed optimism and confidence, rattled off employment gains for women and minorities, reunited a military family, rescued a child from a failing government school, and honored Rush Limbaugh.  There she sat, a day after the Iowa caucus spectacle, and a day before her adopted sham impeachment sputtered to an inglorious demise. [...] Keep in mind, Pelosi is only off balance right now because she's feeling pressure from both the right and left flanks.  From the outset, she knew that impeachment was a political loser, and conveyed as much in her repeated attempts to temper the hotter passions of her more radical colleagues.  But she was ultimately outflanked and neutered by her own party.  This is something new to her, and it's left her temporarily discombobulated.  But she could bounce back again, as she has before, in all her vengeful turpitude.

It's pearl-clutching Democrats who got massacred by Trump impeachment trial.  [Scroll down]  The heart of the case is that Dems dug themselves into a hole and won't drop the shovel.  They have nothing to show for their 2018 House victory except a partisan impeachment that was rejected by the public before the Senate killed it.  The celebration over getting Sen. Mitt Romney's vote on one article is like cheering because your team avoided a shutout.  You still got crushed.  Wonder of wonders, party leaders reacted by vowing to stay the course.  Pelosi, not a whit embarrassed by her shameful stunt of tearing up the president's State of the Union address, launched into another hateful rant.  Saying Trump looked "sedated," she called his speech a "manifesto of mistruths" and claimed he "shredded the truth in the speech, shredded the Constitution in his conduct, and so I shredded his state-of-mind address."

Democrat Congressman Asks Twitter To Remove Trump Video Of Pelosi Ripping Up SOTU Speech.  President Donald Trump on Thursday tweeted out a video that showed images of the people the president honored at the State of the Union alongside clips of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) ripping up Trump's speech.  The caption for the video reads "Powerful American Stories Ripped To Shreds By Nancy Pelosi."  Trump supporters would see the point the video makes — that Pelosi ripped up a speech that included the stories of many honorable Americans because she hates Trump.  Any politician would do the same for an attack ad.  Trump's speech contained a lot of positive information and Pelosi ripped it up, claiming it was full of lies.  If former House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) had done that during one of President Barack Obama's State of the Union speeches the Democrats would absolutely make a similar video.

The Editor says...
Maybe so, but Mr. Boehner wouldn't have made the mistake that Pelosi made.

Pelosi demands social media platforms remove brutal Trump-shared meme of her SOTU tantrum.  A slew of Democrats, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, have begun demanding that Facebook and Twitter censor a meme video that they find offensive.  Reportedly produced by Turning Point USA and later tweeted by the president himself, the meme juxtaposes the infamous clip of the House speaker ripping up President Donald Trump's State of the Union address with clips of the president paying tribute to several extraordinary Americans, including one of the last surviving Tuskegee Airmen.

I'll bet she does!
Pelosi wants video of her shredding Trump speech removed.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is demanding that social media companies remove a video posted by the president featuring her stunt of ripping up his State of the Union message.  Her spokesman, Drew Hamill, told The Hill that Pelosi's office had told both Twitter and Facebook to take it down.

Pelosi's Petulant Performance Panned by Perceptive Public.  The 2020 State of the Union event was quite the political show.  President Trump discussed policy successes, from the economic expansion to improved border control (with Mexico's help, as it happened).  Through it all, Speaker Pelosi lurked above, busily turning pages, shaking her head negatively and mouthing disapproval.  It was what psychologists call "passive aggressive behavior," although she did actively attack her paper copy of the president's speech as a finale.

Democrats Hate What Trump Is Highlighting about Them.  Frozen Face, whose attempt to be the equivalent of the prepubescent heckler making [rude] noises behind the teacher's back was somewhat stymied by her inability to show any emotion, clearly planned her in-kind contribution to the Republicans long before the speech.  She was transformed into the equivalent of a toddler angrily holding her breath on national television because she knows that every lethal word is scoring true while she is powerless to do a thing about it.  The president has an amazing record to run on.  She has her failed impeachment gambit and crazy pen ceremony, ensuring that House Democrats have nothing to run on.

The Five Worst Moments of the Democrats' SOTU.  [Scroll down]  While half the hall offered loud cheers, the other half mostly sat still, perhaps in honor of their electoral chances this fall.  The energy level on the part of the Democrats didn't rise until after Trump was finished, and only because Nancy Pelosi, who displayed an impressive variety of bizarre and peculiar facial expressions throughout, broke the monotony by standing up and dramatically ripping up her copy of the speech's transcript.  Afterwards, asked about her idiotic stunt, Pelosi said she was "courteous" in doing it because it was a "dirty" speech.  "Dirty"?  As the NRCC pointed out in a tweet, the speech was an awful lot cleaner than the dung-dotted streets of her district back home in San Francisco.  The speech she ripped up included a salute to the Venezuelan opposition leader, a tribute to the last surviving Tuskegee airman, a military reunion in the gallery, a young underprivileged student earning a scholarship to her dream school, and other celebrations of American achievement, and she calls it "dirty." [...] Tuesday night was the worst night of Pelosi's political career, and it was 100 percent self-inflicted.

In her post-SOTU and acquittal press conference, Pelosi lied about Trump.  The setting for Pelosi's ferocious verbal attack against Trump was her weekly press conference.  The reasons for her anger and disconnect from reality were twofold:  First, on Tuesday, Trump gave a State of the Union speech that was magnificent.  In the first part, he recited his accomplishments, all of which have benefitted the American people, especially the 99% (unlike Obama's "presidency for the 1%").  He then outlined plans that will bestow even more benefits on Americans, while introducing individuals who embody America's greatness.  Pelosi, on the other hand, engaged in petty pantomime, capped by her ripping up her copy of Trump's speech.  It was juvenile and offensive.  Then, on Wednesday, the Senate acquitted Trump of the impeachment charges the House Democrats had brought against him.  The outcome was preordained, but it was still a slap at the Democrats and a triumph for Trump.

Newt Gingrich:  Pelosi should be kicked out of office for her 'petty, childish' behavior.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., proved how divided the state of the union is by the "petty childish behavior" she exhibited after President Trump's address Tuesday night, former House speaker Newt Gingrich said Thursday [2/6/2020].  Appearing on "Fox & Friends" with hosts Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt, and Brian Kilmeade, Gingrich said he understands where the president is coming from when he snubs Pelosi. [...] Gingrich said that the idea Pelosi would tear up her copy of the State of the Union address was "childish" and "so beneath the dignity of the House."

Liz Cheney:  Pelosi 'Is Unfit For Office'.  In reference to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) tearing up the president's State of the Union speech on national television, House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney said Pelosi "had a tantrum" and showed, again, why "she is unfit for office."  At a Capitol Hill press conference on Wednesday [2/5/2020], the day after the SOTU, Cheney said, "Speaker Pelosi had a tantrum.  She disgraced herself.  She dishonored the House."  [Video clip]

The Best Is Yet To Come.  I ask you, who is the deranged person here?  Candidate #1:  the Speaker of the House, who chewed on sour grapes throughout the President's SOTU only to spit the bitter seeds out at the end, thus demonstrating that she has embraced the role of petulant teenaged brat with no no sense of propriety and no ability to control her emotions.  In other words, the perfect drama queen.  Perhaps she would have served her side better had she simply sat this one out like a couple of her Homies and Squad mates did.  Or at least continued to sit on her hands like the rest of her cabal.

The Suicide of the Left.  The Democrat serving as speaker of the House stands behind the president of the United States at a State of the Union address and acts like a defiant five-year-old stomping her feet in a temper tantrum.  Caught on camera giving the text of his speech a "pre-rip" beneath her desk, when the chosen moment arrives she ostentatiously rips the speech in half in front of the cameras, making herself a national laughingstock.

Trump Impeachment Backfires on Democrats, and Nancy Pelosi Has a Meltdown.  During his State of the Union speech the other night, Trump didn't mention the impeachment once.  With Pelosi sitting behind him, muttering to herself like some angry bag lady alone on a night train, he didn't have to mention it.  He focused instead on his accomplishments and the economy, which infuriates his enemies.  When he was done, Pelosi grabbed Trump's speech, and in a fit of petulance, theatrically ripped it to shreds.  That partisan rage will last in the American mind and be featured in Trump political commercials, just as CNN anchor Don Lemon's laughter mocking Trump voters as illiterate rubes will last until November.

Nancy Pelosi should resign.  The House has its share of infamies, great and small, real and symbolic, and has been the scene of personal infamies from brawls to canings.  But the conduct of Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) at the State of the Union address this week will go down as a day of infamy for the chamber as an institution.  It has long been a tradition for House Speakers to remain stoic and neutral in listening to the address.  However, Pelosi seemed to be intent on mocking President Trump from behind his back with sophomoric facial grimaces and head shaking, culminating in her ripping up a copy of his address.  Her drop the mic moment will have a lasting impact on the House.  While many will celebrate her trolling of the president, she tore up something far more important than a speech.  Pelosi has shredded decades of tradition, decorum and civility that the nation could use now more than ever.  The House Speaker is more than a political partisan, particularly when carrying out functions such as the State of the Union address.  A president appears in the House as a guest of both chambers of Congress.  The House Speaker represents not her party or herself but the entirety of the chamber.  At that moment, she must transcend her own political ambitions and loyalties.

Pelosi hurt American women.  Liberals are praising Nancy Pelosi for tearing up the president's speech as Congress rose to applaud him after he delivered his rousing and patriotic State of the Union.  The mean girls moment was petty and childish, a reminder that when she is under pressure she reverts to being the mayor's spoiled daughter.  [Video clip]  The rest of America is watching as the first woman to be heartbeats from the presidency comes undone.  She trashed the peace and prosperity the rest of us have enjoyed the last 3 years.  Nancy has devoted to brief reprise as House speaker not to making life better for the people of America but to ridiculing the man we the people elected president.

Filed: Department of Justice Criminal Complaint Against Rep. Nancy Pelosi.  To the Honorable William Pelham Barr, United States Attorney General, and to the Office of the Inspector General, U.S. Department of Justice:  At approximately 2218 hours on Tuesday, 04 February 2020, I witnessed clear and indisputable evidence of Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Speaker of the House, committing an act that I believe brazenly and feloniously violates federal law, specifically 18 U.S.C. 2071.  In fact, her actions were witnessed by federal law-enforcement officials and she may have colluded with members of her political caucus who were also witness to this act, in premeditation for the commission of this offense.

18 U.S. Code § 2071.  Concealment, removal, or mutilation generally.

'I'm always dignified': Pelosi dismisses SOTU guests, suggests Trump was 'sedated' as presser goes off the rails.  During her weekly press conference Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tried defending her decision to rip up her copy of the SOTU address by kvetching about the president's guests, accusing the president of being on drugs and claiming everything he said during the address had been a lie.  In the clip below, the speaker first defended her "dignified" premeditated tearing up of her copy of the SOTU address by complaining about the president's guests.  [Video clip] [...] Pelosi SOTU stunt and her nonsensical Thursday rant come amid reports that the Democrat Party's favorability rating has cratered to a new low, whereas the Republican Party's favorability rating has skyrocketed to a new high.  The public's trust in the establishment media is also at a record low.

Rep. Gaetz to File Ethics Charges Against Pelosi: 'She Destroyed Official Records'.  Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) announced Wednesday night that he is filing charges in the House Ethics Committee against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) after she ripped up a copy of President Donald Trump's State of the Union Address Tuesday night.  During an interview with Fox news host Laura Ingraham, Gaetz argued that Pelosi has "impulse control problems" and should be held accountable.  "She disgraced the House of Representatives, she embarrassed our country, and she destroyed official records," Gaetz told Ingraham.  "The law does not allow the speaker of the House to destroy the records of the House, and the rules of the House do not permit some little temper tantrum just because you don't like what the president of the United States says."  Gaetz added that Republicans are sick of the media "double standard" that is applied only to Republicans.

GOP introduces resolution to condemn Pelosi for ripping up Trump's State of the Union speech.  Just hours after their colleagues in the Senate voted to acquit President Trump on the two articles of impeachment brought against him, Republican lawmakers in the House introduced a resolution to condemn House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for ripping up a copy of Trump's State of the Union address Tuesday night.  The privileged resolution, which was introduced Wednesday by Texas Republican Rep. Kay Granger, blasted Pelosi's public shredding of the text of the address as "a breach of decorum" and said it brought "discredit on the House."  After sparring with Republicans on the floor, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., said he will move to table, or set aside the resolution, but since the measure is privileged the House must consider the resolution between now and Friday.

Nancy Pelosi's State of the Union stunt may have broken the law, Rep. Matt Gaetz says.  Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz filed an ethics complaint against Nancy Pelosi that said the House speaker possibly violated numerous House rules — and maybe even broke the law — by tearing up a copy of President Trump's State of the Union speech.  The Florida legislator sent a letter to the House Committee on Ethics requesting that it open an investigation and shared the missive on Twitter.  Gaetz wrote that "Speaker Pelosi's gesture was deeply offensive and appears to violate clauses 1 and 2 of House Rule XXIII," which dictate the House's official code of conduct.  "Her behaviour does not 'reflect creditably on the House,' nor does it follow 'the spirit and the letter of the Rules of the House.'"

Jonathan Turley to Nancy the Ripper:  Apologize or resign.  The State of the Union address delivered by President Trump Tuesday night was like no other I've seen.  Most of all, the messages it delivered were effective.  The Democrats in attendance resorted to behavior indicating they now realize the future may not be so bright for them on Election Night 2020.  Speaker Pelosi led them over the cliff. [...] Woven into the speech were several moments that will be remembered long after any sentences that the president read to the nation — not the least of which is the final moment when the Speaker of the House rose from her seat directly behind President Trump and began ripping up her copy of the multi-page document.  That wasn't any old copy of a speech, that was an official document that Trump handed to her before delivering the speech.

Nancy Pelosi planned out her toddler-like rip stunt all along.  After losing her House's bid to remove President Trump from office after the Senate vote, and facing next the miserable fallout for her party, Nancy Pelosi wanted to do something mean for the cameras, to Get Trump.  In response to the president's State of the Union speech that was reaching its final applause, it wasn't enough to leave the premises.  With the cameras still on, she ceremonially ripped the papers of the speech behind him, in order to draw applause lines from leftists.

Nancy Pelosi 'pre-ripped' pages of Trump's SOTU speech, video shows.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi apparently made tiny tears into her copy of President Trump's State of the Union address — so that her speech-ripping moment could go off without a hitch.  As Trump introduced cancer-stricken radio host Rush Limbaugh — who received the Medal of Freedom during the speech — Pelosi could be seen grabbing the pages off the table.  Video shows her making what seemed to be a tearing motion and then placing the pages back on the table.  Photos of the sheets of paper show them face down on the table with small slits on the side, near where Pelosi would eventually rip them into pieces.

Pelosi 'ripped our hearts out' tearing up that speech says brother of man killed by illegal alien.  Of all the theatrics and political gamesmanship House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., displayed Tuesday night at the State of the Union, and the dishonor she brought upon the institution of government with her antics, the worst thing she did was to bring even more pain to the family of a man killed by an illegal immigrant.  Jody Jones was a State of the Union guest of President Donald Trump, representing his grieving family after his brother, Rocky Jones, was shot and killed in California in 2018 by an illegal alien with a long criminal history and previous deportation orders.  And Jones wasn't appreciative of Pelosi's actions, as the speaker was seen fidgeting, pursing her lips and making faces.  Like a petulant child, she ripped in half a copy of the SOTU speech given to her by the president at the end — a move Jones likened to ripping the hearts out of the chests of every guest in attendance.

Pelosi: 'I don't know if the president understands about prayer or people who pray'.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) blasted President Trump's comments at the National Prayer Breakfast Thursday morning in which he took a swipe at the Speaker's previous comments that she prayed for the president. [...] "I don't like people who use their faith as justification for doing what they know is wrong.  Nor do I like people who say 'I pray for you' when they know that's not so," Trump said at the event.

Pelosi rips McConnell as 'rogue leader' after Trump acquittal.  Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) denounced Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) as a "rogue leader" after the Senate voted to acquit President Trump on Wednesday.  The Speaker accused Trump and Senate Republicans of having "normalized lawlessness and rejected the system of checks and balances."  "Our Founders put safeguards in the Constitution to protect against a rogue president," Pelosi said in a statement after the final impeachment votes in the Senate.  "They never imagined that they would at the same time have a rogue leader in the Senate who would cowardly abandon his duty to uphold the Constitution."

Pelosi's burns:  From SOTU tear to title snub, speaker throws shade at Trump throughout address.  When asked why she tore up Trump's speech by a reporter, Pelosi shot back, "Because it was the courteous thing to do considering the alternatives."  The speaker then released a statement slamming Trump's speech for alleged falsehoods.  "The manifesto of mistruths presented in page after page of the address tonight should be a call to action for everyone who expects truth from the President and policies worthy of his office and the American people," she said in a tweet linking to a larger statement.  Trump hit back at Pelosi's actions Tuesday, retweeting a post from the White House that noted some of the president's high-profile guests, including a Tuskegee Airman and a child who survived being born at 21 weeks, were in the contents of the speech Pelosi tore.  The moment marked a stunning departure from decorum, at an event where even partisan enemies typically put on a show of tolerance toward each other.

Nancy Pelosi's Midnight Ride.  Mrs. Pelosi herself is a tribune of what President Reagan's envoy to the United Nations, Jeane Kirkpatrick, called the "San Francisco Democrats."  In our view, this is why, despite all the constitutional points on which the Democrats prosecuted the President, the whole thing failed to compute.  It's why they failed in the House to gain a single Republican vote for impeachment and why they lost on an almost straight party line in the Senate.

Mike Pence:  Nancy Pelosi hit a 'new low' by ripping up Trump's SOTU speech.  Speaking on "Fox & Friends" the morning after President Trump delivered the State of the Union address, Pence, who was standing next to Pelosi during the president's speech, added, "I wasn't sure if she was ripping up the speech or ripping up the Constitution."  Pence, who said he did not actually see Pelosi rip up the speech, but found out a few moments later, noted that "The contrast here was a president who spent an hour-and-a-half making the speech about America and Nancy Pelosi in the final moments tried to make it about her."  "I think the American people see through it.  They see through the pettiness, they see through the politics of all of it," Pence continued.

White House slams Pelosi for tearing up State of the Union address.  Nancy Pelosi bragged to cheering Democrats Wednesday morning about her ripping up Donald Trump's State of the Union address while the White House blasted the speaker for the move.  Pelosi got a rock star welcome from her Democratic Party when she met with them in the Capitol Wednesday morning.  Lawmakers greeted her with thunderous applause and gave her a standing ovation when she explained why she ripped up the pages of text.  'He shredded the truth so I shredded his speech,' she said, according to reports.

Santilli: Nancy Pelosi Should Be Censured For Misconduct At President Trumps' SOTU Address.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ripped up President Trump's SOTU speech Tuesday night after he was finished speaking.  Pelosi was asked by reporters why she ripped up the speech.  "It was the courteous thing to do considering the alternatives," Pelosi said.  The White House promptly issued a blistering response to Pelosi's temper tantrum.

Pelosi Was Mandated to Preserve Trump's Signed Copy of His SOTU Speech — She Tore It Up Instead.  President Trump delivered a historic State of the Union Address on Tuesday night.  Upon entering the House chamber President Trump handed Speaker Pelosi a signed copy of his State of the Union speech as is required.  According to Carl Hibgie — US law requires that Pelosi preserve any official government document: [...] Nancy Pelosi chose to very publicly destroy the document instead.

SOTU Guest Jody Jones:  Pelosi 'Ripped Our Hearts Out' by Ripping Trump Speech.  Tuesday, Jody Jones was in attendance for President Donald Trump's State of the Union Address in honor of his brother, Rocky Jones, who was killed in California by a criminal illegal immigrant under the state's sanctuary policy.  Immediately following Trump's speech, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was seen on camera ripping up Trump's State of the Union speech, to which Jones shared his reaction to in a Wednesday appearance on "Fox & Friends."  Jones said seeing Pelosi rip the speech up was "probably the most disrespectful thing" he has ever seen in his life, adding it "ripped" his family's hearts out.

'Democrats Sit and Pout over the Thriving State of Our Union'.  At Tuesday night's State of the Union, President Trump stood triumphant on his record, Democrats sat and glowered with impotent rage, and the contrast was breathtaking.  In Iowa, the Democratic Party cannot not even competently count 172,000 votes, and the ones that have been counted point to a win by Boy Mayor and Jurassic Marxist.  On the dais in the U.S. Capitol, "Master Strategist" Nancy Pelosi, sat behind the president making childish faces during his State of the Union address, and then closed out the night by physically ripping up her copy of the speech, an act so childish there are no words.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi Tears Up President Trump Speech Transcript Following State of The Union.  In a clear sign of desperation; as President Trump approval numbers jump significantly while the impeachment effort fails; and seeming to accept that Democrat 2020 ambitions are evaporating in front of her eyes; Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi tears up the printed copy of President Trump's State of the Union remarks at the conclusion of the speech.  [Video clip]  Quite a remarkable display of pettiness and partisan hate.

Trump Delivers Triumphant State Of The Union While Pelosi Seethes.  The 2020 State of the Union dripped optimism, and still, the majority of Democrat members of Congress sat stone-faced, refusing to acknowledge the achievements of the past three years.  Surely, everyone could celebrate achievement.  Unfortunately, it is clear for Pelosi and her party colleagues that achievement means nothing if it is credited to the president of the other party.  It is one thing to have differences of opinion about which policies might best serve the nation, but it is quite another to pour scorn upon good policy for no other reason than a dislike for the president who championed those policies.  The enduring image of President Trump's 2020 State of the Union address will be that of the House Speaker tearing up her copy of the president's speech.  The action epitomized the absolute refusal, on the part of the opposition party, to cooperate in any efforts to move the country forward.

SOTU: The unspeakable ungraciousness of the Democrats in Congress.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi yet again embarrassed herself.  This is a woman without an iota of grace or class.  She has been determined to see President Trump unseated since the day he won the election.  She is the wicked witch of the House; all-powerful but losing her grip on her caucus and her sanity; she is melting.  She sat grim-faced, working her mouth in odd ways as always, trying to distract from the content of the speech by shuffling papers to make the point that she was not listening.  She was purposefully rude.  Her behavior should be mortifying to her colleagues but they all behaved in like manner. [...] When the president's speech was over, Pelosi furiously ripped up her copy of it on camera.  Is there a better, more telling act of her anger and disrespect for the office of the presidency?  She is a harridan, a blight upon her city, her party and the country.

Nancy Pelosi throws a public temper tantrum and other Democrat misbehavior.  Two different events played out on the floor of the House on Tuesday night.  The first was President Trump's powerful, moving, uplifting, and optimistic State of the Union speech.  The second was the immature, arrogant, intemperate, and really disgusting temper tantrum in which Democrats indulged.  The most obvious sign of a complete mental breakdown on the left was Nancy Pelosi's conduct during the speech.  Her petulant behavior could not be missed because she was seated behind the president, to his left.  Whenever the camera was on Trump, it was on Pelosi too.  Pelosi's hissy fit first showed itself when Pelosi refused to give Trump the traditional formal introduction. [...] Things went downhill from there.

White House lambastes Pelosi for ripping speech.  No sooner did Trump finish his address Tuesday night than [House Speaker Nancy] Pelosi tore it in two, right on the dais behind him.  The president had appeared to snub the House speaker before his speech when she extended her hand to him, and he turned back around without acknowledging it.  Tim Murtaugh, the communications director for Trump's reelection team, responded:  "She might as well rip up any plans for attracting independent voters.  Pelosi and the Democrats sat on their hands through all of the good news for Americans in that speech.  It's a sad place to be when good news for America is bad news for Democrats."

Pelosi Violates Protocol By Refusing To Announce Trump Properly at SOTU; Rips Up Speech.  On Tuesday, House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) broke tradition when she refused to announce President Donald Trump properly before the State of the Union address. [...] As noted by The Daily Wire on Tuesday, the SOTU address was boycotted by eight House Democrats.

Nancy Pelosi can rip up Trump's State of the Union address, but she can't change his accomplishments.  As President Trump concluded his State of the Union address and the cameras began to shift to the congressional audience, a shot of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ripping up the physical copy of Trump's speech drew attention.  This moment, though brief, showed how tensions between the president and the Democratic Party are at an all-time high.  Trump spent the early minutes of his address praising his own administration's accomplishments, both economic and cultural, and sharply contrasting them with the failures of the Obama administration.  He didn't mention impeachment, acting almost as if it didn't exist — or like it just didn't matter.  Pelosi would have had a hard time with her base had she failed to contradict Trump somehow.  And so, in order to show how she rejected what he had said, she tore up the speech.  She knew she'd been beat.  Impeachment failed.  The Democratic Party is eating itself over Iowa's caucus divisions.  Trump's approval is at an all-time high.

Pelosi rips up Trump speech at conclusion of State of the Union.  Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Tuesday ripped up her copy of President Trump's prepared remarks at the conclusion of his State of the Union address.  As Trump finished speaking and most lawmakers stood to applaud, Pelosi stood, took the printed copy of Trump's speech and tore it in half.  She placed the shredded copy in a stack on the dais as Trump made his way to greet members of Congress.

Trump Won't Shake Nancy Pelosi's Hand at State of the Union.  President Donald Trump snubbed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-CA) attempt to shake hands before delivering Tuesday evening's State of the Union address.  The moment occurred after President Trump walked onto the dais and handed a binder with his speech to Vice President Mike Pence and Pelosi.  Upon receiving the binder, the speaker extended her arm to shake the president's hand, but he turned away to face attendees instead.

Pelosi's Eyes Pop and Jaw Drops When She Realizes Trump Calling Out California's Sanctuary Laws for Illegal Aliens.  Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) could not hide her shock when she looked down at her copy of President Trump's State of the Union address and realized he was about to call out her home state of California for its sanctuary laws protecting illegal aliens.  Her eyes popped and her jaw dropped:  [Video clip]

Nancy Pelosi Snubs President Trump with Shortened SOTU Introduction.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) snubbed President Trump at the start of the State of the Union (SOTU) address by giving him a shortened introduction, reflecting a cold sentiment she carried all the way to the conclusion of the speech, which she promptly ripped up.

State of the Union address:  Pelosi guest, a father of Parkland shooting victim, booted.  A protester and father of a Parkland shooting victim was booted from President Trump's State of the Union address after shouting from the gallery about gun control.  The man, Fred Guttenberg, made the brief interruption after Trump vowed to "always protect your Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms."  He was there as a guest of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who turned to the gallery with a stern look after the disruption and muttered something under her breath.

Nancy Pelosi Discreetly Gives a Warning to Democrats About Supporting Bernie Sanders.  Now that the impeachment drama is mostly behind them the nation's leading Democrats have to start focusing on the election in just 9 months.  As the top elected Democrat in the nation, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi would not only like to keep but add to her coalition in the House of Representatives but maybe get lucky and get her political bunkmate Chuck Schumer the Senate Majority Leader's gig.  So she is giving a warning about supporting out loud the pie-in-the-sky ideas of candidates like Bernie Sanders.

Pelosi Questions Why The President's Lawyers Are Not Disbarred.  Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Cal.) made an extraordinary statement yesterday that suggests that lawyers representing President Donald Trump should be disbarred:  "I don't know how they can retain their lawyer status, in the comments that they're making."  Just as I have been highly critical of President Donald Trump's attacks on Adam Schiff and others, this is a truly outrageous suggestion.  These lawyers are performing a key function in our constitutional system in not just representing an accused person but fulfilling a vital role in an impeachment trial.  Because Pelosi disagrees with their legal arguments, she insinuates that they should not be licensed attorneys.  It is precisely the type of ad hominem attack that Democrats criticize with the President.  Pelosi added that Trump "will not be acquitted" even if he is acquitted — entirely decoupling the Democratic position from either constitutional or ethical norms.

Impeachment Proves Nancy Pelosi Is an Idiot.  [Scroll down]  But even with my low opinion of her, never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined she would botch this impeachment as badly as she did. [...] In the House, Pelosi has total control over the process.  She runs the House of Representatives, and as Speaker, she has even more power than the Senate Majority Leader.  Why rush things?  Why the hurry to give up a process you have total control over? [...] Out of one side of this ditzy dame's mouth, we were told impeachment must be rushed in order to save the country.  Then, in the same breath, she holds up impeachment a full month.

The Democrats May Have Lost, but They're Still Smarter than You.  Speaker Nancy Pelosi, clearly vexed by the dud of her party's impeachment effort, took the podium at her news conference and squealed, "He will not be acquitted.  You cannot be acquitted if you don't have a trial.  You don't have a trial if you don't have witnesses and documentation and all of that.  Does the president know right from wrong?  I don't think so."  "I don't know how [the Trump lawyers] can retain their lawyer status, in the comments that they're making," Pelosi told reporters, according to The Hill.  "I don't think they made the case.  I think they disgraced themselves terribly in terms of their violation of what our Constitution is about and what a president's behavior should be."

Nancy Pelosi Attacks Trump's Lawyers, Suggests They Should Be Disbarred.  Speaker Nancy Pelosi railed against President Donald Trump's legal team on Thursday [1/30/2020], asking "how they can retain their lawyer status." [...] Despite indications that acquittal is virtually certain at this point, Pelosi has also declared that any Senate vote to acquit the president would be invalid unless new witnesses were called to testify.  "He will not be acquitted.  You cannot be acquitted if you don't have a trial; and you don't have a trial if you don't have witnesses and documentation," she claimed.

Impeach Pelosi/Schiff/Nadler for Abuse of Power.  For three years, Democrats accused the president of having stolen the 2016 election.  Now, they maintain, he is trying to steal the 2020 election.  In reality, it was Hillary and members of the Obama administration (and probably Obama himself) who tried to steal the 2016 election and it is Pelosi, Schiff, and Nadler who are trying to steal 2020.  Pelosi, Schiff, and Nadler are using the power of their offices to erase the 2016 election, steal the 2020 Presidential Election, and damage Republican senators in purple states enough to flip the upper chamber to Democratic Party control.  Running on the issues against the successful Trump administration does not appeal to them.  Instead, they are using impeachment as the means to rig the election to get control of the presidency and the Senate.

Asleep at the Wheel.  Nancy Pelosi is a smart woman, or so we've been told.  Shrewd, calculating, and ruthless are words also used to describe the current Speaker of the House.  But for those of us paying attention, it's become apparent she's asleep at wheel.  Consumed by the impeachment scam, hoping to damage the Trump brand beyond all repair; since beating him at the ballot box in November will be a near to impossible task, Pelosi is either ignoring the chaos brewing in her own party or she simply doesn't care.

Pelosi's Watergate-era impeachment counsel — disbarred but happy to offer advice.  If you were wondering why Nancy Pelosi's impeachment strategy feels like political malpractice, we now can understand why: she's heeding advice from Watergate-era convicted criminal John Dean.  In a fawning cover story, a Pelosi aide revealed to Time magazine that the speaker credits former the Nixon White House counsel with the idea of delaying transmission of the impeachment articles to the Senate.  Typically, attorney advice is offered behind closed doors, but Pelosi jumped on this after she heard Dean discussing the idea during an appearance on CNN.  Dean's a strange choice.  His life has been built on lies and misinformation, yet he's always a welcome guest to mainstream media outlets in need of someone to shout "Worse than Watergate" about any Republican scandal.

Pelosi's Brother-In-Law's Company Received $737,000,000 From Obama's Energy Department.  Even as government financed "green energy" pioneer Solyndra was failing, the Obama administration approved an additional $1 Billion in loans to similar green energy projects.  A whopping 737 million of that money went to the Crescent Dunes project situated in Tonopah, Nevada, to finance a 110-megawatt desert solar power plant.  Stay with me.  Nancy Pelosi's brother-in-law' company was a primary beneficiary of that money landing a $737 million loan guarantee from the Department of Energy for Crescent Dunes.  Funny that as Democrats scream that Saudi's renting out an entire floor of a Trump hotel is an untenable emolument.

McConnell's brilliant statement on Nancy's "golden pens on silver platters".  The signing of the Articles of Impeachment took place on a table with a political slogan on it, Mitch McConnell noted today on the floor of the Senate.  The Senate Majority Leader said that Speaker Pelosi gave out souvenirs, "golden pens on silver platters," as he painted a picture of a garish atmosphere.  The Speaker claimed for weeks that impeachment was a most serious and somber affair.  She was very prayerful, according to her.  McConnell called her on her hypocrisy.  "Nothing says seriousness and sobriety like handing out souvenirs," McConnell said of the partisan process.

CNN: Why Oh Why Was Pelosi Handing Out Souvenir Impeachment Pens With A Grin?  "Nothing says seriousness and sobriety," Mitch McConnell quipped, "like handing out souvenirs as though this were a happy bill signing instead of the gravest process in our Constitution."  In this case, however, the Senate Majority Leader wasn't alone in pointing out the celebratory nature of Nancy Pelosi's supposed "solemn" moment.  Fox News captures the moments where the House Speaker makes sure all her colleagues get their Officially Licensed Impeachment Engrossment Pens, smiling for the cameras the whole time:  [Video clip]

Now that Pelosi has impeached Trump, she will become his stooge.  The more Nancy Pelosi tries to get people to take her seriously, the more ridiculous she is.  During the impeachment vote, it was, "Everyone will take us seriously if we all just wear black."  For an entire month after that, it was, "Everyone will take us seriously if we withhold the articles of impeachment from the Senate."  This week, it was, "Everyone will take us seriously if we have a solemn procession across the floor of the Capitol."  No?  Not that?  How about fancy ceremonial pens?  Would that make anyone take them seriously?  Any takers?  Nancy stopped just short of ordering commemorative plates from the Franklin Mint to see if that might convince America we're in a Very Serious Crisis.  Pelosi lost this fight before it even started because there was never any chance Trump would be removed from office by the Senate.  That became clear way back in October.

Trump impeachment will bring Pelosi and House Democrats condemnation by history.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., seemed giddy Wednesday as she announced the impeachment managers who would go to the Senate and attempt to prosecute a case against President Trump.  "He's been impeached forever," Pelosi said.  "They can never erase that."  However, Pelosi has it exactly backward.  The Senate is going to refuse to convict President Trump.  He will be exonerated, and she and the Democrats will be condemned by history.

Pelosi's And Putin's Remarkably Similar Abuses Of Power.  Jan. 15, 2020, a date which will live in infamy on two continents.  How oddly coincidental that the world witnessed massive abuses of constitutional power in both the United States and Russia on the same day.  In Moscow, Russian ruler Vladimir Putin suddenly unveiled changes to the Russian constitution that will for all practical purposes render his unrestrained rule permanent. [...] Like Putin, Pelosi has timed her move for purposes of aggrandizing power, waiting until mid-January to let the Senate begin its trial — after insisting last year that the impeachment inquiry and subsequent House floor vote had to be hurried to take place before Christmas.

Fake vs. real history.  Wednesday's [1/15/2020] impeachment display was truly one for the fake history books.  Defying the narrative of a somber undertaking, cheery pink suit and all, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi barely suppressed, along with her colleagues, a demeanor of self-satisfaction and sheer delight worthy of the Academy Award.  Of course, instead of the Oscar, there was the "Nancy," a gold pen emblazoned with her name, given to the greatest political performers who act as if they have the best interests of the United States at heart.  Her remarks compared the false, underhanded impeachment proceedings to notable and historic events of our nation's past.  Her zany ramblings belied the fact that this impeachment is not a result of an actual crime, but is in truth a nasty bipartisan assault on a political rival and our constitution.  Pelosi and the left push their fake history and equate their dirty dealings with heavy weighted historical occurrences of days gone by.

Pelosi hands out souvenir pens, Dems slammed for gloating as House delivers Trump impeachment articles.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi drew criticism Wednesday for handing out commemorative pens — with her name on them — after signing a resolution to transmit two articles of impeachment against President Trump to the Senate for trial.  To critics, the tone of the event seemed celebratory — a far cry from December, when Pelosi wore black and insisted on the House floor it was a "solemn" day before the Democrat-controlled body voted to impeach the president on abuse of power and obstruction of Congress allegations.  Later, she even cut short two rounds of cheers from Democrats when the articles were adopted.

Nancy Pelosi's Impeachment Pens Look Like Bullets.  Not only did Nancy Pelosi have commemorative (totally sober) impeachment pens made and carried in on silver trays for her to sign (one interminably long letter at a time while smiling like prom queen), but the pens look like a high-caliber rifle bullets.  Think that was accidental?

Jonathan Turley: Pelosi 'played into' McConnell's hands, 'destroyed' her own case for impeachment.  Constitutional law professor Jonathan Turley laid out a sweeping indictment of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., arguing that her impeachment strategy backfired and gave Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., the upper hand.  "The delay now seems largely driven by a desire to preserve the image of Pelosi as a master strategist despite a blunder of the first order," Turley wrote in a column titled, "Pelosi's Blunder:  How the House Destroyed its Own Case for Impeachment."

Nancy Pelosi Uses More than a Dozen Commemorative Pens to Sign 'Sad' Articles of Impeachment.  Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) declared herself "sad" as she used more than a dozen commemorative pens to sign the two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Wednesday evening [1/15/2020].  The occasion was "so sad, so tragic for our country," Pelosi told reporters, noting the "difficult time in our country's history."  She then approached a table that had been prepared with the documents, and two dishes full of pens for her to use — about half a dozen pens in each.

The Granny Wine Box Traveling Impeachment Circus Heads to the Senate.  [Scroll down]  The president didn't cross a line.  In fact, the Democrats couldn't even impeach him on all the things they'd been promising to make stick for months.  Rather, Pelosi was pushed over a line she never wanted to cross, forced primarily by the unruly young 'uns in her party who she couldn't control.  She may be flailing at the moment, but Pelosi used to be one of the shrewdest politicians in American history.  She knew that once the Democrats committed to going down the road to impeachment their odds of arriving at President Trump's re-election greatly increased.

Pelosi's Blunder:  How The House Destroyed Its Own Case For Impeachment.  [Scroll down]  The fact is that Pelosi played into the hands of McConnell by first rushing this impeachment forward with an incomplete record and now giving him the excuse to summarily change the rules, or even to dismiss the articles.  Waiting for the House to submit a list of managers was always a courtesy extended by Senate rules and not a requirement of the Constitution.  By inappropriately withholding the articles of impeachment and breaking with tradition, Pelosi simply gave McConnell ample reason to exercise the "nuclear option" and change the rules on both majority voting as well as the rule for the start of trials.  That is a high price to pay for vanity.

The Pelosi Legacy: A Barking Dog with No Teeth.  Dogs don't bark because they're brave, they bark because they're scared.  The same can be said for the current House Speaker.  Afraid of a revolt among the even more left wing of her party, afraid of a president her party looks increasingly unlikely to defeat in November, afraid of domestic and international American success via an approach that does not comport with her more liberal views and achieved without her consent, Speaker Pelosi has entered the twilight of her political career barking at all she fears.  Enacting symbolic measures, absent any import, launching an impeachment, replete with hyperbole and hyper-gesticulation, yet devoid of any impeachable offense.  In doing so she has both exposed and cemented her legacy, that of a barking dog with no teeth.

Nancy Pelosi called 'petty and un-American' for upstaging Trump's historic China trade deal.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is under fire for a "deliberate" attempt to "upstage" President Trump as he signed "Phase One" of a long-awaited trade deal with China.  Pelosi chose to announce the impeachment managers for Trump's upcoming Senate trial at a press conference at the Capitol on Wednesday, just before the president signed the "historic" US-China trade deal at a ceremony with Chinese Vice Premier Liu He.

Nancy Pelosi Is Doing Putin's Bidding.  Imagine for a moment what would happen if top Republicans started alleging that Chuck Schumer was working at the behest of a foreign power — that he was a tool of Communist China.  Would any Republican be able to appear on-air without being asked about such allegations?  They would have to confront them, and be asked whether they supported or disassociated themselves from the obviously controversial remarks.  But when Nancy Pelosi appeared on ABC's "This Week" on Sunday — being interviewed by former Democratic PR expert George Stephanopoulus, who is somehow only the second most biased Sunday host, unable to scale the heights of utter hackery achieved by NBC's Chuck Todd — there wasn't a single followup question asked of her about the bombshell allegations she advanced concerning Mitch McConnell. [...] Alleging that your political opponents, one of the two major parties in America, including the Minority Leader of the House, the Majority Leader of the Senate, and the President of the United States are wholly owned assets of a foreign power is the height of irresponsibility.

The Cult Of Pelosi Is A Deadly Thing For Democrats' Future.  There are many cults in Washington, D.C. [...] But today, the city has another faith working reporters into a fervor, and her name is Nancy Pelosi.  Reporters have called her "basically invincible," a "political grandmaster," an "icon of female power," a "rockstar" and, time and time again, "a fashion icon."  Reporters have venerated "her clothes, her hand gestures, her facial expression" and placed a halo 'round her head.  Activists projected her image on San Francisco's city hall and a D.C. restaurant dedicated a Christmas tree in her honor.  "House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is doing to President Donald Trump what no one else has in the nearly three years since he took office:  She's making him squirm."  Business Insider pronounced two days after Christmas.  "House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has managed to accomplish what no one else has even tried in the past three years:  sticking it right back to Trump," RawStory echoed the same day in an article that includes "squirm" in its headline.

The Pelosi Stillborn Impeachment.  As Nancy Pelosi lost her standoff with Mitch McConnell, bowing to the collapse of support even within her own Democrat caucus, she finally bit the bullet and conceded that she would have to submit her impeachment articles without having won a single face-saving concession from her Senate opponents after a fortnight of dangling the articles in her hallucination that she was dangling candy before a child or water before a soul desperately thirsting for it in the desert.  No one really gave a hoot.  Yes, we commentators commented.  Cable television consumed hours daily debating it.  But it did not matter a whit. [...] It had no life.  The Constitution explicitly states that the only grounds for impeachment are bribery, treason, high crimes, or misdemeanors in the way the term was understood in 18th-century England.  Even if the president had abused power, well — all presidents abuse power.  That is what executives do.

McConnell Excoriates Pelosi Days Before Impeachment Trial Begins.  Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) excoriated House Speaker Nancy Pelosi from the senate floor asserting that she finally ended her "one-woman blockade."  "This strange gambit has achieved absolutely nothing," McConnell said of Pelosi's threats and delay tactics.  The Senate "was never going to allow the Speaker to dictate" how to handle a trial.  "The Senate will not be sucked into this precedent-breaking path," McConnell said touting the separation of powers between the two chambers of congress.  [Video clip]

Pelosi falsely claims court fight for Ukraine impeachment witnesses.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Democrats are fighting to force impeachment witnesses who defied congressional subpoenas related to Ukraine to testify, but so far, no court cases against the four key figures exist.  Pelosi made the misleading claim in an ABC interview Sunday [1/13/2020] in response to comments about Republican critics saying House Democrats could've done more to exhaust their alternatives when Trump officials refused to show up to testify at the behest of the president, [...] "That isn't even true," Pelosi said.  "We are in court on the witnesses.  It could take a very long time."  But no Ukraine controversy figures, including none of the four impeachment trial witnesses requested by Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer [...] have been brought to court by Democrats to enforce the subpoenas they ignored, and Bolton was never subpoenaed at all.

Pelosi unhinged.  In the tweet below Dan Bongino concisely disposes of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's unhinged take on the ongoing impeachment saga (embedded video).  Those of us who avoid the Sunday morning gabfests missed this revealing glimpse into the mind of the Dems' strategic genius and legislative mastermind.  The video clip below puts me in mind of a variation of George Wallaces's infamous vow of "segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever."  In Pelosi's case, it would be "impeachment now, impeachment tomorrow, impeachment forever."

Pelosi: No Matter What Happens in the Senate, Trump Will Be 'Impeached Forever'.  No matter what the U.S. Senate does, President Donald Trump will be "impeached forever," House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told ABC's This Week.  "Let's be optimistic about the future, a future that will not have Donald Trump in the White House one way or another," Pelosi told host George Stephanopoulos on Sunday.  "Ten months we will have an election if we don't have him removed sooner.  But, again, he'll be impeached forever."

Pelosi Accuses McConnell of Being an Accomplice' to Russian Election Interference.  On Sunday's [1/12/2020] broadcast of ABC's "This Week," House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) accused Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) of being an "accomplice" to alleged Russian interference in U.S. elections.

What Was It For?  It is easy to underestimate speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, because she speaks an obscure dialect of High Gibberish and frequently seems to be confused in public — not that any of that is stopping Joe Biden from leading the Democratic primary field.  Pelosi is clever enough, but lacks the courage that in politics comes from genuine conviction, which she also lacks, and that makes her easy to bully.  The zany-left caucus in the House — the left-of-San Francisco caucus — pushed Pelosi to ignore her own better judgment in order to give the Democrats one of those "moral victories" they keep proclaiming as Republicans claim electoral ones.  Which is to say, impeachment will be this year's Beto O'Rourke vs.  Ted Cruz.

Pelosi Is Realizing Impeachment Was a Mistake.  America is the midst of an imaginary impeachment standoff between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.  "Both have drawn firm lines in the sand.  Someone's got to give," one reporter recently declared.  There is, of course, nothing to "give."  Pelosi has no standing to dictate the terms of a Senate trial; no constitutional right or political leverage.  Why she has put herself in a position that will ultimately end, one way or another, with her surrendering to McConnell is perplexing.  A new piece in Time magazine does shed some light on the thought process behind Pelosi's decision to refuse to hand over articles of impeachment to a Senate whose majority doesn't want them.

Is Pelosi Timing the Impeachment Articles' Release so as to Damage Bernie?  The conventional wisdom regarding Nancy Pelosi's holding of the impeachment articles is that, as someone put it, she'd pulled the pin on the grenade and then didn't know what to do.  Yet even if she has bumbled into her current predicament, which seems likely, is there now some method to her madness?  Has she found a way to turn lemons into at least a thimble of lemonade by using the situation to damage the presidential candidate she doesn't want to see capture the Democratic nomination — burgeoning Bernie Sanders — and help the establishment choice, Joe Biden?

Here's Just How Dumb Nancy Pelosi's Gambit of Roadblocking Impeachment Was.  Sometimes real life mirrors parody, and in the case of Nancy Pelosi's gambit of refusing to hand over the articles of impeachment she pushed to pass, it certainly does.  In fact, while many of us had been under the impression that Pelosi had gotten the idea from Lawrence Tribe, a deranged Twitter Harvard professor who spouted off about not giving the articles to the Senate early on, where she really got the idea from is even more laughable.  Apparently, Pelosi decided to blow up her own charade after watching a felon on CNN.

Why did Pelosi hold up the impeachment articles?  Nancy Pelosi finally gave up her futile attempt to use the threat of not sending impeachment articles to the Senate as a means of forcing Mitch McConnell to give her a say in how the Senate will conduct the trial.  Since McConnell isn't exactly dying to hold a trial of President Trump, Pelosi's gambit wasn't just empty, it was ridiculous.  She comes off looking silly.  Why did Pelosi make such a dumb play?  I suspect she deluded herself into thinking it might work because, being obsessively power hungry, she failed to distinguish between her actual power and the power she covets.  Pelosi has never been popularly elected to any office more significant than representative of a congressional district entirely within the friendly (for her) confines of San Francisco.  Nor has she ever served in the U.S. executive branch.  Yet, as I argued here, she behaves as if she's the shadow Secretary of State.

Nancy Pelosi gives bizarre, inappropriate press conference after plane crash.  In Washington, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi — third in line to the presidency — strode to the podium to address reporters on these issues of death, war and terror amid her effort to remove President Trump from office. [...] "Today's a happy day for us," she said in a grating halt to the solemnity of the moment.  Almost in sing-song, she explained, "We are going to celebrate the wedding of Barbara Lee!"  It was jarring.  Barbara Lee is one of her House lieutenants, but what her wedding had to do with any of the serious and pressing global matters at hand today was anybody's guess.  Mrs. Pelosi stammered and stared around, apparently confused about when the wedding was, where the celebration would be or why any of it was relevant in this grave moment.  She felt the urge to explain.  "I convey that to you because it is a source of joy to us, as she is a source of joy."  Silence was the only response from those gathered in the room with pen and pad looking on. [...] This is a woman who should be carted off to the insane asylum, and not be leading Congress.

Trump calls on all Republicans to oppose 'Crazy Nancy Pelosi's' War Powers Resolution.  President Trump called on fellow Republicans to oppose a resolution meant to place restrictions on his ability to take military action without congressional approval, as the House prepares to vote on the measure late Thursday [1/9/2020].  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the planned vote in a one-page statement that said last week's U.S. drone strike that killed Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani was "provocative and disproportionate," despite Trump administration claims to the contrary.  Many Democrats were also incensed that the administration did not notify Congress in advance.

Nancy Pelosi's pointless war-powers ploy.  Speaker Nancy Pelosi just pushed through a bill aiming to limit President Trump's ability to hit Iran, even though the crisis is over.  Why?  Thursday's [1/9/2020] House passage of her war-powers resolution is almost certainly pure symbolism:  Nothing like this is going to pass the Senate, and even if it did its constitutional status would be dubious.  And events, including the president's actions, have shown that the fears that inspired the bill are unfounded.

Washington Post:  A Republican altered a photo of Nancy Pelosi!.  [Scroll down]  I guess the Post reporter wasn't aware of all these altered images on Pelosi's own account when she wrote a story about a GOP Rep. altering a photo of Pelosi.  In fact, Pelosi has a much higher profile and nearly twice as many followers as Stefanik on Twitter, so why didn't the Post notice?

Pelosi Will Either Cave or get Rolled by McConnell — the Choice is Hers.  Hardball politics in the nation's capital — or anywhere else, for that matter — is all about leverage, and when you have none, you are destined to lose.  Pelosi is destined to lose in her idiotic impeachment scam, and today she appeared to finally, if reluctantly, acknowledge her reality.

Pelosi on 'Urgent' Impeachment Articles: 'I'll Send Them Over' to Senate 'When I'm Ready'.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), during her weekly press conference Thursday, said she is not holding back the two articles of impeachment approved against Donald Trump last month "indefinitely."  A reporter asked the Speaker," Are you holding the articles indefinitely?"  "No.  I'm not holding them indefinitely.  I'll send them over when I'm ready.  That will probably be soon," she replied.

Pelosi's Urgency of Impeachment at a Snail Pace.  Nancy Pelosi's delay in sending the articles of impeachment to the Senate undermines the implied urgency of the issue.  Senate Democrats are getting impatient with the delay.  Like most Americans, they want to get the process started.  Nancy isn't getting her way.  She wants a guarantee that witnesses will be called to testify in the Senate hearing.  Senate Republicans aren't preventing witnesses, but using the same guideline as the most recent impeachment trial of President Clinton.  The video of a discussion between Mitch McConnell's and Nancy Pelosi's former Chiefs of Staff highlights the process and party strategy behind her delay.

Rep. Bradley Byrne Moves to Censure Pelosi for Holding Up Impeachment.  Rep. Bradley Byrne (R-AL) will introduce a resolution on Thursday to censure House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for obstructing the impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump, Breitbart News has learned exclusively.  Byrne, who is vying for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate this year from his native Alabama, believes the speaker has broken congressional precedence by refusing to send the articles of impeachment to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Nancy Pelosi Likens Eliminating Soleimani to Assassinating the U.S. Vice President.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Thursday defended her opposition to the elimination of Iran's top general and terrorist mastermind Qasem Soleimani by likening the action to a hypothetical assassination of the vice president of the United States.  The speaker expressed outrage upon the death of Soleimani, describing the Trump administration's actions as "provocative and disproportionate."

Rep. Adam Smith of Bellevue backtracks after split with Nancy Pelosi on impeachment strategy.  U.S. Rep. Adam Smith caused a brief ruckus Thursday morning [1/9/2020] when he publicly broke with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi over her delay in sending articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump to the Senate.  But within hours, Smith, D-Bellevue, fell back in line, saying he "misspoke."  Smith's bad morning began with a CNN interview in which he said "it is time" to send the articles "and let Mitch McConnell be responsible for the fairness of the trial."  While he said it had been "perfectly advisable" for Pelosi to try to leverage a fair Senate trial that "would show evidence and bring out witnesses," he concluded "at this point, it doesn't look like that's going to happen."

Nancy Pelosi Dodged Mike Pence Phone Call Notifying Her of Iranian Missile Attack: 'Tell Him I'll Call Him Back'.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi refused to immediately take a phone call from Vice President Mike Pence on Tuesday evening notifying her that Iran had launched missile attacks against at least two U.S. military bases in Iraq.  "Tell him I'll call him back," Pelosi said to an aide who handed her a note that the vice president was calling her during a meeting, opting to not immediately take the phone call as U.S. bases in Iraq were under attack and instead call the vice president back.

Liz Cheney calls Nancy Pelosi an embarrassment after Speaker spotted at party following missile attack.  U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., called House Speaker Nancy Pelosi an "embarrassment" Tuesday evening [1/7/2020] after Pelosi reportedly attended a Washington restaurant opening following Iran's missile fire against U.S. troops in Iraq.  "Speaker Pelosi is an embarrassment and unfit for office," Cheney wrote as she retweeted a photo posted online purportedly showing the speaker at the restaurant in Washington's Navy Yard neighborhood.  "Closely monitoring the situation following bombings targeting U.S. troops in Iraq," Pelosi had tweeted earlier, before she was photographed at Danny Meyer's Maialino Mare restaurant.

The Dems' Impeachment Losing Streak Continues.  Has any political ploy failed as spectacularly as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's decision to delay sending the articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump over to the Senate.  Even Democrats are now telling her the jig is up.  Pelosi had hoped to use the delay as leverage to get the Senate to agree to the Democrats' demand for witnesses at the trial.  It was a foolhardy plan that, had the leadership not been in the grip of Trump Derangement Syndrome, it never would have attempted.

Borderline Treason:  Democrats continue to betray their country.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is readying her Democrat-controlled House of Representatives to vote this week on legislation to tie President Trump's hands in dealing with the blood-thirsty Iranian regime.  Speaker Pelosi is peeved that she and her Democrat congressional colleagues were not consulted first before President Trump ordered the killing of Iranian terrorist mastermind Qasem Soleimani late last week.  Too bad.  She should run for president if she wants to become the commander-in-chief.  In any case, she is a hypocrite.

Feinstein Fed Up with Pelosi Delay Tactics — Demands She Send Articles of Impeachment to Senate.  Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) is demanding Nancy Pelosi deliver the articles of impeachment to the Senate, but the Speaker is digging in her heels and won't let go.  Fox News reported that Pelosi told colleagues in a letter that she will not give the articles of impeachment to the Senate unless McConnell 'immediately publishes' his resolution and accused the Senate Majority Leader of making "misleading claims" about the Clinton impeachment to justify his strategy.

Napolitano: Some Democrats' patience is 'wearing thin' with Pelosi's impeachment delay.  Some Democrats are getting fed up with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi withholding articles of impeachment from the Senate, and want to "move on" to a trial, Judge Andrew Napolitano said Thursday [1/9/2020]. [...] "I think patience is wearing thin even from some Democrats.  Sen. Dianne Feinstein comes to mind.  I think somebody is going to start saying to Mrs. Pelosi: 'Let's move on with this,'" he said.  "The longer it goes on, the less urgent it becomes.  So if it's serious and urgent, send them over.  If it isn't, don't send it over," Feinstein told Politico.  McConnell said Tuesday he has the votes to start an impeachment trial even without an agreement on potential witnesses — once the chamber receives the articles from the House.

Senate Democrats break with Pelosi, want articles of impeachment.  Senate Democrats are breaking with their party leaders over House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's decision to hold on to the articles of impeachment, saying it is time to get President Trump's trial rolling.  The grumbling in the ranks puts pressure on Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer, New York Democrat, who has stood by Mrs. Pelosi's decision to withhold charges against the president in an attempt to get Senate Republicans to guarantee witnesses will be called during the trial.  Majority Leader Mitch McConnell used the crack in the ranks Wednesday [1/8/2020] to call on Mr. Schumer to break Mrs. Pelosi's impasse.

Dianne Feinstein tells Pelosi to end delay over articles of impeachment.  Since House Democrats approved two articles of impeachment three weeks ago, Pelosi, 79, coordinating with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York, has been sitting on the documents in a bid to pressure Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky to agree to more favorable terms for the trial.  But Senate Democrats are beginning to lose their patience with Pelosi's maneuver.  The intervention of Feinstein, 86, saying bluntly that the time had come for Pelosi to transmit the impeachment articles to the Senate makes it highly likely that her fellow Californian will do so.

Nancy Pelosi's Delusions of Grandeur.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has repeatedly portrayed President Trump as an existential threat to the republic.  As she put it when announcing the House impeachment inquiry, "The actions taken to date by the president have seriously violated the Constitution."  She later justified her mad rush to hold an impeachment vote in December by claiming it was necessary "to defend democracy."  In reality, by presiding over the hyper-partisan passage of two inscrutable articles of impeachment and holding them hostage until the Senate allows her to dictate how it will conduct the president's trial, Pelosi has revealed that she is the genuine menace to our unique system of government.

Nancy Pelosi Dodged Mike Pence Phone Call Notifying Her of Iranian Missile Attack: 'Tell Him I'll Call Him Back'.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi refused to immediately take a phone call from Vice President Mike Pence on Tuesday evening notifying her that Iran had launched missile attacks against at least two U.S. military bases in Iraq.  "Tell him I'll call him back," Pelosi said to an aide who handed her a note that the vice president was calling her during a meeting, opting to not immediately take the phone call as U.S. bases in Iraq were under attack and instead call the vice president back.

Pelosi's impeachment tactics are pursuit of power for its own sake.  When House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) re-assumed her position of power, her daughter Alexandra affectionately said of her mother:  "She'll cut your head off and you won't even know you're bleeding."  That can literally happen in some third-world "democracies."  America's rule-of-law culture, however, requires that political assassinations be bloodless.  Media-driven criminal investigations and character assassinations are the weapons of choice.  Both have failed to take down President Trump.  However reluctantly, Pelosi has acquiesced to the third-world instincts of her socialist-trending party.  A master of tactics, but not strategy, Pelosi undoubtedly has been war-gaming different scenarios.

Graham gives Pelosi ultimatum, proposes Senate rule change to remove her from impeachment process.  Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., insists that if House Speaker Nancy Pelosi does not deliver articles of impeachment against President Trump to the Senate by the end of the week, the Senate should "take matters in our own hands."  Graham accused Pelosi of playing political games and trying to exert control over the Senate trial by keeping it from starting.  Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., recognized Friday on the Senate floor the chamber's rules prevented him from doing anything until Pelosi does her part, but Graham proposed a solution that could remove what McConnell has called an "impasse" in the process.

Whose side is she on?
Pelosi Condemns Trump's 'Provocative and Disproportionate' Airstrike Killing Top Iranian Commander.  House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) condemned Thursday's U.S. airstrike killing top Iranian military leaders, calling it a dangerous, disproportionate response by President Donald Trump to this week's attacks on a U.S. embassy in Baghdad, Iraq.  The targeted airstrike killed powerful Iranian military commanders the Pentagon says were responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American and coalition service members, and were plotting more attacks, [...]

Pelosi Stands Up For Brutal Terrorist, Scolds Trump For 'Disproportionate' Hit On Soleimani.  On Friday [1/3/2020], House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) took a stand for brutal terrorist and Iranian general Qassem Soleimani, scolding President Donald Trump for taking a "disproportionate" hit on the terrorist.  "American leaders' highest priority is to protect American lives and interests," the Democrat leader posted via social media hours after the Soleimani-kill was confirmed.  "But we cannot put the lives of American servicemembers, diplomats and others further at risk by engaging in provocative and disproportionate actions."

The Editor says...
Nancy Pelosi appears to be engaged in a coup to overthrow the President.  Nancy Pelosi hates to see President Trump succeed.  If I were in President Trump's position, I wouldn't tell Nancy Pelosi anything.

Shadow Secretary of State Pelosi on the killing of Soleimani.  Nancy Pelosi fancies herself a foreign policy expert who not only must be consulted by the president's foreign policy team, but who can set or manipulate American foreign policy. [...] If the killing of Soleimani was "disproportionate," that's only because Iran's terrorist in chief is responsible for the death of hundreds of Americans.  Unfortunately, we can only kill Soleimani once.  Moreover, American intelligence indicated that Soleimani was planning new attacks that would have killed more Americans.  If so, then it wasn't "disproportionate" to kill him and his associates for that reason, as well.  I think the administration may be too optimistic about the extent to which taking out Soleimani will prevent future attacks.  Presumably, he had deputies who can step into his role effectively enough to cause serious trouble.  However, it's not disproportionate to kill a terrorist who is responsible for many American deaths and who is plotting many more.

Pelosi says Trump carried out strike on Iranian commander without authorization and she wants details.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is calling on the Trump administration to immediately brief lawmakers on the U.S. airstrike that killed a top Iranian commander in Iraq and what the White House plans to do next.  The strike in Iraq was directed by President Donald Trump and killed Qassem Soleimani, the commander of Iran's secretive Quds Force, the Department of Defense announced Thursday night [1/2/2020].

Is Trump Impeachment Inquiry Nancy Pelosi's Retaliation For Being Left Fuming on the Tarmac?  "Queen Pelosi wasn't happy with the small USAFC-20B jet, Gulf Stream III that comes with the Speaker's job ... OH NO!  Queen Pelosi was aggravated that this little jet had to stop to refuel, so she ordered a Big Fat, 200-seat, USAF C-32, Boeing 757 jet that could get her back to California without stopping!  "Queen Nancy's Big Fat Jet costs us, the hard working American tax payers, literally thousands of gallons of fuel every week."  The best thing President Trump ever did in 2019 was on Jan. 17 when he grounded Pelosi's mid-Government Partial Shutdown planned flight to Afghanistan, Belgium and Egypt.

The Left Goes Over the Edge.  [Scroll down]  They hammered through the vote all the same, constantly accelerating, until...  Until Nancy Pelosi, unable to look failure in the face, refused to turn the articles over to the Senate on specious grounds — and did this at the beginning of the Christmas recess, when absolutely nothing could be done to alter the situation.  So for three weeks, there she is, hanging like Wile E. Coyote waiting for gravity to take hold.  She is now in the worst position a politician can envision: a situation in which all possible alternatives mean even more public humiliation for herself and her party.  She can either maintain her insistence on being the Red Queen of American politics, or submit to the Senate and see her impeachment articles tossed aside.  And it's all her doing.  So much for the "smartest woman in Washington."

Pelosi's Game Of Chicken Will Leave Her Party Fried.  After holding a vote to impeach President Donald Trump, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has decided to wait on sending the impeachment articles to the Senate.  According to many in the media, this brilliant bit of strategy gives her leverage to force Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to provide a fair trial in the Senate.  There's so many reasons this is wrong, but let's start with the most obvious:  according to the Democrats' own impeachment witness, Harvard law professor Noah Feldman, Trump isn't actually impeached until the articles are sent to the Senate, and "an indefinite delay would pose a serious problem."

The Most Irritating person of 2019 is...  [Scroll down]  Next in D.C., resembling Laurel and Hardy, we have two mismatched tinhorns named Adam Schiff and Gerald Nadler.  But unlike the lovable Stan and Ollie, the Adam and Gerry show was, simply put, a source of constant irritation sans the comic relief. [...] But, Adam and Gerry were never doing anything more than responding to strings pulled by Nancy Pelosi.  As such Adam and Gerry are removed from further consideration, only to be surpassed by megamillionairess:  Nancy Pelosi.  Certainly Congresswoman Pelosi's moments in the spotlight were welcomed by her acolytes, while reviled by those possessing common sense, morals and respect for the Constitution.

The parallels between Hunter Biden and Paul Pelosi are absolutely eerie.  [Scroll down]  But here's where things get odd:  Go through the ownership of this building and you feel like you've been slipped some of that hallucinogenic toad poison.  This structure has passed between a goodly number of entities — and yet, per the documents, no transfer taxes have been paid.  Pelosi said he has no equity in the building and never has.  "It's not my business.  I never got paid.  I never expected to get paid."  And yet there he is, listed in 2015 as the Chief Financial Officer of Feng RE, Inc., the entity that owned 1312 Utah.  Can't make this up.

Rep. Steve Scalise: 'It's No Longer Nancy Pelosi Calling the Shots'.  Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) joined former Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), who was guest hosting "The Ingraham Angle" on Thursday night [12/26/2019], to discuss what happened to change Pelosi's mind.  Scalise said, "The AOC wing of the party changed and really started controlling her caucus.  And so, it's no longer Nancy Pelosi calling the shots — and you think about anybody who follows in the things that she's been forced into doing, it's been mostly the far-left socialist wing of the party and it's not just Pelosi."

Trump Exposes Nancy Pelosi and Son Paul's Shady Dealings in Ukraine.  As The Gateway Pundit reported back in November Quid-Pro-Joe and his son Hunter are not the only Democrat family members cashing in on their prominent positions.  Like many Democrats Paul Pelosi Jr. has made a career off of his mother's political stature.  Shortly after his mother became the first woman speaker, Paul Pelosi Jr., was hired by InfoUSA for $180,000 a year as its vice president for Strategic Planning.  Nancy Pelosi's son Paul is also on the board of an energy company.  Paul Pelosi Jr. also traveled to Ukraine for his work.

Nancy Pelosi is Playing Political Games with the U.S. Constitution over Donald Trump's Impeachment.  For all the work that's gone into addressing the charges against President Donald Trump, it's hard to argue they rise to the level of impeachable offenses.  The charge of obstruction of Congress could just as easily be presented as a justifiable defense of executive power for which ample precedent exists.  The allegation he abused the power of his office is likewise flawed.  While U.S. policy toward Ukraine is legitimately a subject for congressional oversight it is hardly the stuff of which previous presidents were threatened with removal from office.

Kimberley Strassel nails it when she expertly dissects Pelosi's 'rolling impeachment' ploy.  Wall Street Journal columnist Kimberley Strassel hit the nail on the head in a piece on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's gamesmanship of not sending two articles of impeachment against President Trump to the U.S. Senate.  Given House Democrats' weak case and the inevitable acquittal from the upper chamber, perhaps the San Francisco Democrat is doing all she can to avoid a trial.  "Who says Pelosi even wants a Senate trial?  Strassel said in a tweet plugging her piece about the party's "rolling" impeachment.  "Far better for Democrats to keep impeachment rolling?"

Pelosi's Rolling Impeachment.  Republicans dismiss Speaker Nancy Pelosi's refusal to transmit the impeachment articles to the Senate as a weak stunt.  They do so at the peril of both the Constitution and President Trump.  Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell may be a master tactician, but Mrs. Pelosi is no slouch.  It's now been more than a week since the House impeached Mr. Trump, and Mrs. Pelosi has yet to name impeachment managers or formally send over the paperwork.

Pelosi's Ploy.  Some say there is an evil genius to Pelosi's withholding Articles of Impeachment from the Senate where they are certain to face ignominious defeat.  As long as she refuses to submit, [Pelosi] can claim Trump has been impeached without having to acknowledge that her crimeless Articles are doomed to an unceremonious trouncing in a Republican-controlled Senate.  She is counting on an uninformed public, unaware that constitutionally, until she transmits the articles to the Senate, Trump has not been impeached.  A grand jury can decide for indictment but if the prosecutor chooses not to file the indictment with the court, that person has not been indicted.

On Pelosi's Impeachment Stunt and Destiny's Fork in the American Road.  It is a strange time.  Christians watch Democrats — including Nancy "As a Catholic" Pelosi — make a sacrilege of "peace on earth and good will to all" by infusing the nation with division and hate. [...] We Americans enter this Christmas and Chanukah season at a fork in the road for America's destiny.  In eleven months, either the whole enterprise of nearly 250 years may go down the tubes, or we continue to have a fighting chance to save the United States of America.

Why Democrats Will Never End The Impeachment Show Until Trump Is Gone For Good.  [Scroll down]  But even if President Trump is "officially" impeached, it will not change the significance of Pelosi's stammering, indefensible explanation for delay.  It included the statement, "Frankly, I don't care what the Republicans say."  Of course she doesn't.  This entire process has had absolutely nothing to do with upholding constitutional duties or about coming to a bipartisan conclusion in support of impeachment, as Pelosi said was so important mere weeks ago.  It was always about putting on a political show for a rabidly partisan audience — and the show must go on.  The current Democrat talking point is that Pelosi is delaying to ensure there are fair procedures in place for a Senate trial.  That's a preposterous claim to make in the wake of a one-sided impeachment inquisition in which the Democrats restricted their Republican colleagues' meaningful participation and declined to grant President Trump any due process in the name of expedience, which is now apparently unimportant.  That won't happen in the Senate, and Pelosi knows it.

Gowdy: Pelosi Has No Constitutional Authority to Dictate the Rules of a Senate Impeachment Trial.  Former prosecutor and Republican Congressman Trey Gowdy is weighing in on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's continued refusal to turn over two articles of impeachment against President Trump to the Senate for a trial.  "If he [President Trump] really is an existential threat the Republic, if he really has committed conduct that should result in his removal from office, then why would you not send it onto the Senate?  The Constitution gives the House no role in deciding how this trial takes place.  It is exclusively within the province of the Senate," Gowdy said during an interview with Fox News.  "I think most of my fellow citizens will see through this 'lets hurry up and impeach him' and then sit on the indictment."

Time for a Directed Verdict?  [Nancy Pelosi] now threatens to withhold the impeachment articles from the Senate until Mitch McConnell assures her of a conviction.  OK, that's not exactly the way she phrases it, but that's what she means.

Pelosi is Trump's secret weapon.  I doubt San Franciscans will vote her out.  She represents well a city that is so stupid it lets people poop in the street.  But the American people tire of Democrats and their petty, snarling ways. [...] In the end, Pelosi is merely a figurehead — old and stuttering as she tries to hang on to a speakership that Democrats in all likelihood will relinquish in 2021.

Queen Pelosi wants to rule the Senate and nation but voters will revolt.  Queen Nancy Pelosi is not amused.  Having just demanded her subjects in the House impeach the president in a historic and unprecedented party-line vote, jeopardizing the reelection of many and even threatening her own reign, Her Royal Highness, aka the House Speaker, grew testy recently with inquisitive reporters.  Pelosi scolded the pesky press for wanting to know why, for the first time in the nation's history, she did not follow the accustomed path of handing the articles of impeachment over to the Senate for an expected trial.  Having to explain her bizarre decision was apparently beneath her; she cut off inquiries abruptly saying, "Any other questions because I'm not going to answer any more questions on this... I'm not going to go there anymore."

Just Let the Democrats Schiff Themselves.  Military guys [...] try to abide by the apocryphal advice of Napoleon, who counseled that you should never interrupt your enemy while he is making a mistake.  But this doesn't apply to the Democrats because they are not only too dumb to listen to your warnings but their weird dogma actually makes it impossible for them to imagine that they are heading for disaster in 2020. [...] Nancy Pelosi, who is no dummy, knows.  She gets it.  That's why she's not taking questions on her solemn, sad impeachment thing.  She gets that she's trapped by the Commie Caucus's resolute determination to please their blue enclaves at the expense of alienating everyone else.  So she's trying to make it fade away.

Nancy Pelosi defends withholding articles of impeachment, cites Trump's 'phony complaints'.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi took to Twitter Monday [12/23/2019] to defend her decision to withhold the articles of impeachment, saying she must first know how the Senate will conduct the trial against President Trump.

The Editor says...
The operation of the Senate is none of Ms. Pelosi's business.

Stammering, Blabbering, Stuttering Pelosi Tries to Explain the Impeachment Delay.  In a video that has gone viral, Nancy Pelosi tries to explain why she has decided to delay the impeachment circus.  The key part of that sentence is "tries to."  What comes out of her mouth makes no sense whatsoever.  None.  If you want to know why Nancy Pelosi is the Speaker of the House, you only have to watch this video of a news conference she gave on Thursday.  Such eloquence!  It's absolutely amazing to listen to her.  [Video clip]

Ken Starr thumps Nancy Pelosi for obstructing impeachment process, accuses her of abuse of power.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has thus far obstructed the impeachment process by delaying the transfer of two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, which passed in the House this week, to the Republican-controlled Senate.  According to Ken Starr, Pelosi's actions are "wrong constitutionally," he said Saturday on Fox News.  "It's an impeachment with a footnote or with an asterisk," Starr said.  "By the way, it never went over to the Senate, which I think means that it's a bit of a phony impeachment."

Nancy Pelosi, Not Trump, Is Provoking A Constitutional Crisis.  Under the Constitution, the House has the sole power of impeachment and the Senate has the sole power of conducting a trial.  Although the Constitution doesn't say the House must go through a formal process of "transmitting" the articles of impeachment to the Senate, precedent and Senate rules dictate that the Senate does not take up measures passed in the House until they have been certified and transmitted, and that it won't take up an impeachment trial until the House appoints impeachment managers (or prosecutors) for the trial.  This Pelosi has refused to do.  She is in effect asserting the primacy of the House over the Senate, insisting that the Senate conduct an impeachment trial on terms dictated by the House.

Pelosi gives slurring, incoherent answer to impeachment question.  While she was answering questions from the media Thursday [12/19/2019], one reporter seemingly threw Pelosi for a loop with a simple statement.  "Do you run the risk, as some Republicans have said, of looking like you're playing games with impeachment if you hold on to these articles for too long?" CBS News reporter Nancy Cordes asked. [...] To hear her complete confusing statement, along with all the stumbling and slurring, watch the video below:  [Video clip]

Pelosi's Latest Stunt.  Nancy Pelosi now says that she will not submit the impeachment notice to the Senate.  Uh, Okay.  All month, she was telling us that the impeachment was so urgent that it could not wait for time-consuming distractions [...] Since Pelosi has gone out of her way to tell all of us, just the other day, that she makes all her decisions (except those pertaining to abortion, birth control, gay marriage, assisted suicide, etc.) "As a Catholic," she clearly was racing to skip the annoyances of procedural due process and legal compliances so that she, too, could be home in time to open her presents under the Tannenbaum, undoubtedly spruced for her PETA voters with politically correct artificial fir, in one of her several multi-million-dollar mansions sprawled around the Homeless State.  There was just no time to wait.

Pelosi Ignores the Problems of Her Constituents as the Impeachment Charade Continues.  [Scroll down]  People living and eating in the streets of Los Angeles have caused a sharp increase in the rat population and with it a vector for diseases like typhus, which has affected people who work near Los Angeles' largest homeless encampment.  Disease does not remain in one place, just as San Francisco's poop gets tracked all over the city and the discarded hypodermic needles that litter the sidewalks of mid-Market and the Tenderloin are there for anyone to step on and spread disease.  There is no policy on the table to solve the homeless problem and its effects.  Nancy Pelosi, who should have this issue on her front burner, has spent the last twenty-two months obsessed with the impeachment of President Donald J. Trump.  Even now, this so-called important set of articles is being withheld from the Senate as the charade continues and the real problems of her constituents and, ultimately, the rest of us are neglected.

Pelosi lies about claim that '200,000 Wisconsin voters' won't get to cast ballots in 2020.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) lied her way through the impeachment of President Donald Trump, and now she's lying about an effort in Wisconsin to clean up voter registration rolls ahead of next year's elections.  On Thursday [12/19/2019], Pelosi sent out a tweet claiming that 200,000 people from the Badger State wouldn't be able to cast a ballot in the 2020 elections due to a "voter purge" by those mean Republicans in the state.

Dershowitz: Pelosi Delaying A Senate Trial Is 'Unconstitutional'.  Calling out the Democratic Party for its far-left extremism, Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz denounced House Speaker Pelosi's plan to withhold sending the impeachment vote to the Senate for a trial as "unconstitutional."  As noted by Fox News, the Harvard Law professor's recent op-ed for Newsmax came in response to his colleague Laurence Tribe, who backed Pelosi in not allowing a Senate trial on impeachment.  "[Tribe] would withhold the trial until the Senate agreed to change its rules, or presumably until a new election put many more Democrats in the Senate.  Under his proposal, there might never be a Senate trial, but the impeachment would stand as a final and permanent condemnation of President Trump," Dershowitz wrote.

Nancy Pelosi, What Are You Doing?  Late Wednesday night, Speaker Nancy Pelosi floated the possibility that the House might withhold the articles of impeachment against Trump and not transmit them to the Senate at all. [...] The need to impeach the president was such an urgent matter, we were told, that the House could not wait for the courts to rule on challenges to the White House's efforts to prevent key witnesses like Mick Mulvaney, Don McGahn, and John Bolton (whom House Democrats didn't even subpoena) from testifying.  These important figures all claimed they would await guidance from the judiciary before consenting to testify, and the indications were that the extraordinary nature of the impeachment process would prove compelling.  Now the courts aren't even sure if they are obliged to continue litigating the matter.  With the articles passed, the issue is all but moot.  Democrats now insist that the Senate cannot proceed unless it hears from these witnesses, but that is also tacit admission that the fact-finding portion of impeachment proceedings was unduly rushed.

Why Impeachment Is A Massive Blunder For Nancy Pelosi.  It's been an ugly fall in Washington.  Wet, dreary and deeply stupid.  In the season we're supposed to be shopping for the perfect gift for our loved ones, instead most of us are busily shopping for a reason to give America what they say she wants more than her two front teeth: impeachment.  But despite Wednesday's long-expected vote and the media cheer group accompanying it, this is going terribly for the Democrats.

6 Reasons Pelosi's Senate Obstruction Gambit On Impeachment Articles Is A Disaster.  Immediately after impeaching President Donald Trump for allegedly obstructing the House and abusing his power as president, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi obstructed the Senate's constitutional obligation to hold an impeachment trial and abused her power by trying to steal power that belongs solely to the Senate under the Constitution.  Pelosi told reporters on Thursday that she is in no rush to formally transmit to the Senate the articles of impeachment her party in the House had just approved.  Here are six reasons Pelosi's impeachment obstruction stunt undermines the entire basis of the Democrats' effort to eject Trump from office.  [#1] After impeaching Trump for supposed obstruction of House, Pelosi moves to obstruct the Senate[.]  Pelosi said she'll wait to send over the articles until she finds out how the Senate will conduct the trial, which looks a lot like obstructing the Senate, given that the Constitution clearly states that the Senate has "the sole power to try all [i]mpeachments."

Newt Gingrich:  Nancy Pelosi looks 'foolish' holding up impeachment process.  Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich said Friday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's temporary hold on two articles of impeachment is "absurd" and that she looks "foolish."  Appearing on "America's Newsroom" with host Sandra Smith, Gingrich explained that Pelosi, D-Calif., is in a "world that's out of control."  "Why would you start a fight in the House knowing you are going to lose control of it to the people who are very capable of making you look very foolish?" he asked.  "And yet, that's the dance they began."

Incoherent Nancy Pelosi Releases the Flying Monkeys.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi responded to questions and concerns about the construct of a heavily partisan impeachment process and her refusal to send the articles of impeachment to the Senate.  Highlighting the tenuous nature of the position now held by her party, a barely coherent Speaker Pelosi attempts to explain.  As reporters ask questions, Pelosi becomes frustrated and tells the compliant media no more questions on impeachment will be entertained.  A day after impeaching the President, the Speaker of the House refuses to answer questions.  [Video clip]

Pelosi's risky strategy to withhold impeachment from Senate roils Washington.  Democrats want to put pressure on individual Republican senators over the issue of calling witnesses in a Senate impeachment trial, and they are looking to create friction between President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.  But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi struggled Thursday to explain what, exactly, her plan is in delaying sending the articles of impeachment to the Senate.  She refused to answer questions from reporters who wanted more clarity.

Jim Jordan to House Democrats:  Why Are You Withholding Articles of Impeachment After Rushing to Impeach?  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is playing a peculiar game of chess with Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) when it comes to the articles of impeachment.  Instead of preparing to transmit them, which you'd think she'd do ASAP considering how critical it was for Democratic House leaders to get the articles voted on in the House before Christmas, she's withholding them in an effort, at least on the surface anyway, to get McConnell to play by her rules.

NY Post front cover
Nancy Pelosi dubbed 'swamp mistress' on New York Post impeachment front page: 'It's your funeral'.  The New York Post labeled House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., the "Swamp mistress" on its Thursday [12/19/2019] post-impeachment cover that says the decision will backfire for Democrats in 2020.  The tabloid put the news of President Trump's impeachment along the top of the front page before declaring "Swamp mistress Pelosi dresses in black for historic vote," with the message, "It's your funeral."  The "swamp mistress" moniker accompanies an opinion piece by Michael Goodwin that labels Trump's impeachment a "stomach-turning charade" that "damages America."

Judge Napolitano:  Pelosi withholding articles of impeachment from Senate would be 'grave injustice'.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has a constitutional obligation to send articles of impeachment to the Senate, Judge Andrew Napolitano said Thursday [12/19/2019].  Appearing on "Fox & Friends" with hosts Pete Hegseth, Steve Doocy, and Ainsley Earhardt, Napolitano said that while he has said there was a legal basis for impeachment in the House, lawmakers now have a "moral and constitutional obligation" to send the two articles of impeachment to the Senate.  In a news conference on Wednesday, following the House impeachment vote, Pelosi said that Democrats may wait to send their articles of impeachment against President Trump to the GOP-controlled Senate, for fear that they are incapable of holding a fair trial.  "Well, guess what?" asked Napolitano.  "Under the Constitution, the Senate writes its own rules not subject to the approval of the speaker of the House or even the majority of the House."

Pelosi throws impeachment into confusion.  Minutes after the House impeached President Donald Trump, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi threw the process into confusion by refusing to say when or whether she would send the articles of impeachment to the Senate for a trial.  At a news conference held immediately after the vote, Pelosi said "we'll see what happens" when asked if she would send the articles to the Senate.

Mitch McConnell says Nancy Pelosi is Scared to send him 'shoddy' articles of impeachment.  Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell blasted Democrats on Thursday for creating what he called an 'unfair, unfinished product,' articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump that stemmed from 'partisan rage.'  Calling House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's work 'constitutionally incoherent,' he said impeaching a president on the basis of political disagreements would 'invite an endless parade of impeachable trials' in the future, making House leaders 'free to toss up a jump-ball every time they feel angry.'  'She's failed the country,' McConnell said on the House floor.  'It was like the speaker called up Chairman [Jerrold] Nadler and ordered up "One impeachment, rushed delivery, please".'

Nancy Pelosi Declares: "the senate rules are unfair" — "when rules become fair we will send articles".  The entire House effort to impeach President Donald Trump has been a one-sided partisan effort; built upon a foundation of manipulation of process and dismissal of the minority rights throughout.  After the House voted along party lines, and in an act of stunning hubris, Speaker Pelosi now declares she will withhold the articles of impeachment until the Senate makes rules that she determines will be "fair" to the prosecution.

Here's how McConnell & Senate Republicans should respond to Pelosi's brazenly unconstitutional act.  The Senate has the sole power under the Constitution to adjudicate an impeachment.  Therefore, Pelosi is attempting to obstruct the Senate's power to act on its constitutional authority.  McConnell should immediately put an end to this and declare the impeachment null and void, as the speaker has failed to complete the impeachment process by timely sending it to the Senate for adjudication.  McConnell has no less authority to unilaterally make such a decision than Pelosi does to withhold the administrative notification of an impeachment to the Senate either indefinitely or with conditions.  Her effort to cripple the presidency and blackmail the Senate must be defeated.

Pelosi turns impeachment circus into even more of a comedy.  Ed suggested this maneuver was on the way yesterday [12/18/2019] and now it appears that Speaker Pelosi has decided on the lame explanation the Democrats will hang their hats on.  In order to attempt to give Chuck Schumer some "leverage" in the impeachment trial, the Speaker may refuse to send the articles of impeachment to the upper chamber, dragging all of this nonsense out even further. [...] When I turned on CNN this morning, the anchors were desperately trying to explain why the Constitution doesn't demand the Speaker send the articles of impeachment to the Senate.  That's technically true, but the Constitution doesn't really "demand" much of anything, other than requiring the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court to preside when the President is on trial.

Away from that baleful cat Pelosi, the impeachment 'rats come out to play.  Did anyone really think the Democrats were serious when they put on those long faces for the nightly news and cast their impeachment votes?  [N]o.  Nancy Pelosi may have put on a funereal face and ordered her minions to pretend to be solemn for the cameras, but [...] The leftists cheered.  They took selfies.  They went wild. [...] Nope, the whole thing was always an animating, celebratory, giggly affair for these people.  They've accomplished their life's work now and will probably have a hangover in the morning.

It's all about optics, B-roll, and photo opportunities.
Impeachment vote:  Pelosi tells Democrats to stay 'solemn' during proceedings.  Nancy Pelosi's Democratic caucus has been champing at the bit to throw President Trump out of office, but the House speaker on Wednesday ordered her colleagues not to gloat — and wore a black dress to what she repeatedly called the "solemn" impeachment proceedings.  Pelosi and other Democratic leaders told their members not to cheer or applaud when the impeachment vote totals are announced, Axios reported, and many members described the day as sad and solemn.  "Don't cheer, keep it solemn," a Democratic member from a district that Trump won said was the message the leadership delivered.

Democrats Celebrate After 'Sad and Somber' Impeachment of President Trump.  House Democrats clapped and celebrated after they passed two articles of impeachment against President Trump, despite House Speaker Nancy Pelosi reportedly telling them not to, as she has sought to portray the impeachment as a solemn and sad event.  After the first article on abuse of power passed, Democrats broke out in applause for several seconds before Pelosi shot them a stern look.

Supercut: Democrats Are Devastated To Be Impeaching Trump.  [Video clip]

Dems' fake 'solemnity' exposed as Pelosi silences applause about impeachment vote with her evil eye and hand gesture.  It was an absolutely perfect crystallization of the phoniness of the Democrats' impeachment rhetoric when Speaker Nancy Pelosi had to silence the spontaneous applause that started to break out as she announced the results of the vote on the first article of impeachment of President Trump.  The Speaker reportedly had instructed House Democrats to pretend that they weren't thrilled with impeaching President Trump in order to maintain the illusion that they are a "prayerful" and solemn legislative body reluctantly carrying out their constitutional duty.  The reality that they are a deranged lynch mob, carrying out vengeance against the man who unexpectedly defeated their sure-thing candidate Hillary Clinton is evident to anyone who heard the calls for impeachment that preceded Trump's inauguration and continued over the last 3-plus years he has been in office.

House Dems Approve Articles of Impeachment Against Trump.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi opened Wednesday's [12/18/2019] debate on the floor of the House by declaring that lawmakers are "custodians of the Constitution."  She and several of her female Democrat colleagues wore black attire in the House chamber to signify what they described as a "somber day."  That was all for show, of course.  But the black color Speaker Pelosi and her cohorts wore for Wednesday's proceedings was appropriate for an entirely different reason — to mourn the damage the House Democrats themselves have inflicted on the Constitution by their irresponsible votes.  They have earned a black mark for taking a wrecking ball to the Constitution's impeachment provisions.

Nancy Pelosi's stomach-turning impeachment charade damages America.  The arcane rules, phony cordiality and debates over the second sentence in paragraph G of Point Six were bad enough, but the nausea meter hit the roof when Nancy Pelosi took the microphone.  Wearing a funereal black dress, she stood next to a cardboard American flag and recited the Pledge of Allegiance.  I would have counted her more honest if she had pledged her allegiance to a Democratic donkey.  As the leader of a party that has marinated its mind in unadulterated hatred of President Trump, Pelosi bears unique responsibility for this calamity.  She could have stopped it.  Indeed, for months she did.

Pelosi threatens to delay Senate impeachment trial.  Speaker Nancy Pelosi refused to commit Wednesday [12/18/2019] to delivering articles of impeachment to the Senate, citing concerns about an unfair trial on removing President Donald Trump from office.  Senior Democratic aides said the House was "very unlikely" to take the steps necessary to send the articles to the Senate until at least early January, a delay of at least two weeks and perhaps longer.

Senate Can Acquit Even If House Withholds Articles of Impeachment.  Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) appears to be considering an idea Democrats have floated for several days of holding back the articles of impeachment to exercise leverage over the Senate and the president.  She declined formally to transmit the articles to the Senate on Wednesday evening [12/18/2019] after the House voted to impeach President Donald Trump.

Nancy Pelosi Compares Impeachment to Battle of the Bulge Against Nazi Germany.  Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) launched the debate over the impeachment of President Donald Trump on Wednesday by comparing the Democrats' struggle to remove him from office to the Battle of the Bulge against Nazi Germany in World War II.  Described as "Hitler's Last Gamble," the battle began in December 1944, when the Nazis sent 200,000 troops into a surprise attack against American forces.  Though the Americans prevailed, 100,000 were killed or wounded over two months of fighting.  Pelosi drew an analogy between the impeachment debate and that battle, the largest ever fought by the U.S. Army.

Trump sends scorching letter to Pelosi ahead of House impeachment vote.  President Donald Trump sent a letter on Tuesday to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, excoriating the House Democrats' pursuit of an impeachment inquiry just a day before the full House is set to vote.  In the lengthy letter, the President calls Pelosi's actions spiteful and veers into what he sees as personal affronts.  "You are offending Americans of faith by continually saying 'I pray for the President,' when you know this statement is not true, unless it is meant in a negative sense," Trump writes in the letter.  "It is a terrible thing you are doing, but you will have to live with it, not I!"

Trump tells Pelosi in blistering letter that Dems are 'declaring open war on American Democracy'.  President Trump, in a blistering, no-holds-barred six-page letter Tuesday to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., lambasted the Democrats' impeachment inquiry as an "open war on American Democracy," writing that she has violated her oath of office and "cheapened the importance of the very ugly word, impeachment!"  "Everyone, you included, knows what is really happening," Trump said, just a day before House Democrats were expected to vote to impeach him.  "Your chosen candidate lost the election in 2016, in an Electoral College landslide (306-227), and you and your party have never recovered from this defeat.  So you have spent three straight years attempting to overturn the will of the American people and nullify their votes.  You view democracy as your enemy!"

Nancy Pelosi Wears All Black on 'Somber Day' of Impeachment, 'Feels Sad'.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and several other female House Democrats are wearing black attire in an effort to show Wednesday's scheduled impeachment vote is a "somber day."  CNN chief political correspondent Dana Bash tweeted that Pelosi conveyed to her that she "feels sad" over today's vote as she walked into the House chamber while House Democrats debate impeachment.

WaPo Fact Checker Slams Pelosi for 'Bogus Talking Point' on Guns.  A Washington Post fact-check released Thursday [12/12/2019] gave House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) four Pinocchios for a "bogus talking point" about the number of children killed with firearms each year.  Pelosi has repeatedly claimed that 47 percent of gun deaths were "teenagers or children," according to the Post.  CDC data show the real number is closer to 9 percent, meaning the House speaker exaggerates the true number by more than fivefold.  This discrepancy led the Post to assign Pelosi's claim the harshest rating on its fact-checking scale.

Pelosi On Dropping The "Devastating" Bribery Article:  "I Am Not A Lawyer".  I was pleased to see that the Judiciary Committee dropped previous claims of bribery, extortion, campaign finance and obstruction of justice as the basis for impeachment.  I testified that the repeated assurances on these allegations from members, legal analysts, and my fellow witnesses were well outside the definitions for these crimes.  The Committee ultimately went forward with the only two articles that I viewed as legitimate while rejecting my arguments to wait to build a sufficient record for submission to the Senate.  I have received considerable criticism for my long opposition to the bribery theory as unsustainable as an impeachable offense.  Thus, I was interested in hearing from the two members who were most adamant in their past declarations that bribery was established:  Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff.  Speaker Pelosi has now responded and her answer is far from satisfying.

Buying Impeachment:  Nancy Pelosi-Aligned PAC Spends Millions to Help Swing District Democrats.  Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's rush to impeachment is receiving an assist from the millions of dollars at least one PAC aligned with her has already spent on House Democrats who currently represent swing districts.  Those financial incentives appear to be increasingly relevant as the final vote on the two articles of impeachment is scheduled to come to the House floor this week.

Alternate Realities and Impeachment.  [Scroll down]  I don't doubt that Pelosi would throw herself on the sword for the party but only if the upside were all but guaranteed or things were so bad she had nothing to lose — neither of which is the case.  As addled as she sounds at times, I find it hard to believe she's lost her strategic mojo and is hellbent on taking down Trump uber alles — personal consequences to her and the party [notwithstanding].  That would be asking her to throw away control of the House with the presidential bathwater.  Not to mention the mess she'll have to clean up during campaign season after the Senate acquits Trump — not a guaranteed outcome but the most likely one.  But the speaker has to know there is a 50/50 chance that a Senate trial could expose the House of cards on which the impeachment is built and derail both the presidential and congressional races for Democrats.  I think that's too risky for her.

The Inspector General's Report.  [Scroll down]  While this impeachment charade has bounced between the two most compulsively mendacious legislators in the Western world, Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been giving daily recitals of her "prayerful solemnity" at the dark majesty of the impeachment process that saddens her so deeply.  She has invoked her Roman Catholic faith (tempered in its fervor by enthusiasm for abortion and other doctrinal inconveniences from the theology of St. Teddy Kennedy and the Blessed Joe Biden) to say she "hates" no one and "prays for the president."  This was enough to bring on what seemed to be out-of-body epiphanies with the susceptible pundits on cable television, such as Rachel Maddow and Larry O'Donnell of MSNBC:  "The speaker stood there, in the Catholic faith she has practiced all her life," etc.  The result is nausea and amusement conjoined.

When Devout Catholics Grimaced Over Pelosi's 'As a Catholic' Hypocrisy.  James Rosen, a great reporter, asked Nancy Pelosi at a press conference last week why she hates the duly elected president of the United States.  In her response, Pelosi detoured into another dimension, denying that she hates Donald Trump.  "As a Catholic," she lectured, "I resent your using the word 'hate' in a sentence that addresses me.  I don't hate anyone."  "My goodness!," I thought to myself.  "How utterly frustrated, bemused — even furious — sincerely devout Catholics must feel listening to this cheap politician, who represents billionaires in a district teeming with homeless, cloaking her hatred for President Trump in Catholic fabric!"  Which part of her devout "as a Catholic" devotion leads Nancy Pelosi to be a leader in promoting abortions, gay marriage, and the Obama-Democrat agenda she shepherded?  Where was this "as a Catholic" when the Little Sisters of the Poor were fighting their way to the Supreme Court of the United States, seeking SCOTUS protection in Zubik v. Burwell in 2016, from Pelosi's Obamacare, which forced the nuns, against their Catholic faith, to provide birth control contraceptives to employees?

Jerry Nadler's absolutely underwhelming articles of impeachment.  Just 11 weeks after Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced her "official impeachment inquiry," Judiciary Committee chief Jerry Nadler released his draft articles of impeachment — remarkably weak ones.  The same day, Pelosi announced a deal with President Trump to pass his US-Mexico-Canada trade deal, replacing NAFTA.  It's a win for him and for her moderate members — yet the speaker is simultaneously treating the president as a threat to the republic and as a man she can do business with.  The reason may be as simple as the polls:  The latest Quinnipiac survey shows sentiment against impeachment at its strongest since Pelosi got the ball rolling on Sept. 24, with more than half of voters now saying Trump shouldn't be removed from office.

On Impeachment Tuesday, Nancy Pelosi Toasts the Media at Holiday Party.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi toasted the media after Articles of Impeachment were announced Tuesday [12/10/2019], celebrating reporters on Capitol Hill at a special holiday event.  Pelosi raised her glass and toasted the press as the "guardians of democracy" after unveiling the articles of impeachment on Tuesday.

Pro-Abortion Pelosi's Convenient Catholicism.  Cafeteria Catholic Pelosi doesn't invoke her Christian conscience when she supports her caucus's abortion-until-birth infanticide policy, the ultimate separation of mother from child.  There is no worse brutality than what an unborn child feels at the hands of a surgeon's tools.  It is a fact that forceps kill more children than guns.  A detention center on the border or the deportation of those who have had their due process and have a deportation order lawfully issued by a judge doesn't even come close.  Pelosi did not respect faith-based communities and other organizations, such as her Catholic Church, when it came to Obamacare's attempt to force them and the institutions they administer to provide insurance that pays for abortions and contraceptives.  When it comes to Catholics and pro-life people acting on their religious conscience, she fights them quicker than you can say "Hobby Lobby."

Sister Nancy Incarnacion and the H8ters.  People tend to repeat what has worked for them.  Pelosi's last great achievement was pushing the fundamentally lawless Affordable Care Act over the line, despite a lack of popular support.  She did it by ruthlessly enforcing party lockstep, pushing many in her caucus to walk the plank. [...] She is running the same play with impeachment.  She doesn't care that impeachment for all appearances, will fail in Senate.  Opinion might change.  We have to impeach the president to find out what crimes are in him.  Pelosi thinks the president campaigning under a cloud will help candidates who run for open Senate seats, and if it doesn't, so what?  The likelihood of beating Trump without a decent candidate is low anyhow.

After impeachment announcement, another round of Nancy Pelosi hero-worship from the press.  We are seeing another round of Pelosi hero-worship this week from our firefighting news media following her announcement that she had asked the "chairman to proceed with the articles of impeachment" against President Trump.  "The president has engaged in abuse of power, undermining our national security and jeopardizing the integrity of our elections," the speaker maintained during a news conference.  Members of the press wasted no time printing up stories marveling at her iron will and determination.

Nancy Pelosi's 'Article II' Impeachment Rationale Exposed as Hoax.  Nancy Pelosi is going to impeach Donald Trump, the duly-elected president of the United States, based on what we now know is a hoax. [...] Nancy is inventing crimes now.  She's making stuff up.  She is all over TV framing the accused, planting evidence, which is what a dirty cop does when they can't make a case.  Nancy is deliberately and maliciously taking Trump out of context.  And not just a little out of context.  No, she is taking the president so far out of context I feel a little silly having to explain it.

Pelosi on Clinton Impeachment: 'Republicans in the House Are Paralyzed With Hatred of President Clinton'.  On Dec. 18, 1998, when the House of Representatives was debating whether to impeach President Bill Clinton for perjury and obstruction of justice, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) declared on the House floor that the impeachment was "a punishment searching for a crime that does not exist" and was happening "because the Republicans in the House are paralyzed with hatred of president Clinton."  "I urge my colleagues to vote no, stop this hatchet job on the presidency," Pelosi said then.  "Stop this hypocrisy.  Stop this hatred.  Vote no on all four counts."  [Video clip]

Speaker Pelosi Declares a Coup Against President Trump.  Nancy Pelosi transparently announced a coup against President Trump on Thursday morning, Dec. 5, 2019, a date which will live in political infamy.  There was never any doubt that the House of Representatives will vote on a strictly partisan basis to impeach the president, but it could not have been foreseen that Pelosi would frame that approaching act as a naked power grab.  Yet that is exactly what she did.  In opening her announcement to draft impeachment charges by quoting the Declaration of Independence, she acknowledged more plainly than ever before that she is taking a revolutionary act, that she is overthrowing the established order and that, in modern terms, she has launched a coup. [...] This impeachment is not a unifying act like the joining together of 13 Colonies against a common enemy, but rather the tearing asunder of a union into separate camps much like the rebellion that Abraham Lincoln encountered in 1861.

Pelosi's Prescription for Healing the Nation: 'Enjoy Music Together,' See a Play, a Movie.  A student who identified himself as a registered Republican asked Pelosi Thursday night [12/5/2019] how she plans to unify the nation, as one side demands impeachment and the other side calls it a witch hunt.  "I myself think that one of the ways that America will heal is through the arts," Pelosi answered.  "I truly believe that that's something where we find our common ground.  You enjoy music together, you see a play, or a movie, you laugh, you cry, you're inspired — you laugh, you cry."

The Editor says...
Maybe we could all go to the public library and enjoy Drag Queen Story Hour.  Or perhaps Nancy Pelosi could recommend a movie that will make the impeachment fiasco look reasonable.  What's the name of the play that would make me want to vote for Michelle Obama or Hillary Clinton?  What orchestra performs the music that would make me vote for the Abortion Party?

Pelosi says Clinton was impeached for 'being stupid,' downplays House Democrats effort against Trump.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi sought to move on from questions about impeachment during a televised town hall Thursday night, even as she insisted she wasn't bothered at all by polls showing sagging support for the probe against President Trump.  Pelosi, who also claimed former President Bill Clinton was impeached only for "being stupid," made her comments at the CNN event just hours after she appeared at a fiery news conference to direct the House Judiciary Committee to begin drafting articles of impeachment against Trump.  "Can we not have any more questions about impeachment?" Pelosi asked at one point.  "I don't mind questions, but to ask me questions through the prism of the White House is like, what?"

Pelosi: 'I Do Pray For [Trump] ... It Doesn't Bother Me What He Thinks About That'.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday night [12/5/2019] insisted that she does pray for President Trump, and said it doesn't bother her if he doesn't believe her.  She also voiced the hope that the Democrats' push to impeach the president would be carried out in a way worthy of the Founders' vision for a unified nation.  During a CNN town hall in Washington on the day she told the House committees investigating Trump to proceed with articles of impeachment, Jake Tapper asked Pelosi about her press conference comment earlier in the day that she prays for the president "all the time" — and about Trump's subsequent retort on Twitter.

The Despicable Sanctimony of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.  Self-bestowed sanctimony, like seething hatred of another, is something that should never be put out on public display.  Pelosi's grab-bag sanctimony was on full display today when journalist James Rosen asked the one question millions of people longingly need answered:  "Do you hate the president, Madam Speaker?"  Pelosi's answer was a jaw-dropping stunner, not because she ordered plucky Rosen, "Don't mess with me.", but because she took it upon herself to answer for all Catholics, and all other Democrats with the proverbial use of the term, "WE".  "Don't mess with me when it comes to words like that," Pelosi said.  "As a Catholic, I resent you using 'hate' in a sentence that references me."  Millions in the world, including Catholics resent that Pelosi uses her Catholic religion as a foil to hide her seething hatred of President Trump and his supporters known in Democrat land as the curse-worthy "deplorables".

'Prayerful' Pelosi has become the Tammy Faye Bakker of impeachment, Mark Steyn says.  Conservative commentator and author Mark Steyn mocked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's fiery news conference appearance Thursday, where she cited her Roman Catholic faith as proof that she doesn't "hate" President Trump, adding she continues to pray for him.  "I know that observing the ritual niceties of American politics requires making a boatload of industrial-strength hokum," Steyn said on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" on Thursday [12/5/2019].  "But you and I and 300 million people across the country know that Nancy Pelosi isn't praying for the president."

Nancy Pelosi erupts 'Don't mess with me!' when reporter asks if she Hates Donald Trump.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi erupted Thursday at a reporter who asked if she hates President Donald Trump.  Pelosi had two hours earlier publicly told House Democrats to draft articles of impeachment to try to remove the president from office.  'Do you hate the president, Madam Speaker?' asked James Rosen, a longtime correspondent for Fox News who is now with Sinclair Broadcasting.  Pelosi, typically even-tempered, abandoned her measured speaking and became visibly angry.  'I pray for the president all the time,' she shot back.  'So don't mess with me when it comes to words like that.'

The Editor says...
The leader of the Abortion Party is quick to brag about how much she prays.

Queen Pelosi's Abuse of Power.  It was fascinating to see to see Speaker Pelosi, fresh from a congressional jaunt to a climate change conference in sunny Spain, explain to us the urgency of impeaching President Trump after, as Rep. Andy Biggs points out, the equivalent of two months of congressional recesses in which none of the American people's business was done.  One of those was the Thanksgiving recess, during which the 31 House members from House districts Trump won, and others, got an earful from constituents who wanted to know why nothing's been done on prescription drug prices, border security, putting together a budget, or the USMCA trade agreement with Canada and Mexico.

Nancy Pelosi Announces Democrats Will Begin Drafting Articles of Impeachment.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said Thursday that the House Judiciary Committee will begin drafting articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.  "The president's actions have seriously violated the Constitution," Pelosi said in a press conference on Capitol Hill.  "Our Democracy is at stake.  The president leaves us no choice but to act."

ImpeachmentTV: Season 2, episode 1:  The House Judiciary Caper.  [Scroll down]  This was always one of the main purposes of the impeachment sham.  Pelosi was smart to avoid putting her members on the record voting to open an impeachment inquiry but she needed to open the inquiry in order to obtain certain powers and pretense to get more dirt to smear Trump and his advocates.  Some people "in the know" think the Democrats won't actually vote on impeachment because it's very risky politically:  Pelosi will put her members in Trump districts on the record and once the articles of impeachment head to the Senate, the Democrats will lose control of the information stream.

Pelosi Chooses Climate Change over USMCA Jobs.  Ever notice that climate change conferences are never held in places like Somalia or Bangladesh or perhaps one of those islands that are going to be under water the day after tomorrow?  They are always held in places like Copenhagen (2009) or this time in Spain, places where the elites can fly in on private jets, stay in five-star hotels, and explain why they must control every aspect of our lives lest we all die in the next dozen years. [...] Of course, flying in 25,000 attendees is considered by the elites as a necessary contribution to atmospheric carbon dioxide pollution.  Climate change supporters, not Trump supporters, are a true cult, creating a climate religion they demand we must worship.  The goal is to use climate change as a means to increase government power over every aspect of our lives — what we make, how we make it, what energy we use, what cars we drive, even what food we eat.

Pelosi to lead delegation to climate summit amid U.S. withdrawal from Paris climate deal.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is leading a delegation of members of Congress to the annual international climate summit known as COP25 in Madrid, Spain, next week.  While the delegation will include members of both the House and Senate, it will not be bipartisan, as only Democrats will be attending.  "It is a privilege to accompany a high-level Congressional delegation to Spain to combat the existential threat of our time:  the climate crisis," Pelosi said in a statement on Saturday [11/30/2019].  "Taking action to protect our planet is a public health decision for clean air and clean water for our children, an economic decision for creating the green, good-paying jobs of the future, a national security decision to address resource competition and climate migration and also a moral decision to be good stewards of God's creation and pass a sustainable, healthy planet to the next generation," she said.

The Editor says...
[#1] This is a taxpayer-funded junket.  A vacation, not a delegation.  Nothing of any substance will result from this trip.  [#2] "Resource competition" is nothing new.  [#3] There is no "climate migration."  [#4] If you want to make "a moral decision to be good stewards of God's creation" maybe you should reconsider your absolute commitment to abortion at any stage of pregnancy.  [#5]  "[C]reating the green, good-paying jobs of the future" is not the government's proper role, and anyway, the push for "green jobs" started years ago and hasn't worked.  [#6] There is no climate crisis, carbon dioxide is not a pollutant, and there is no "existential threat."

Nancy Pelosi's worst nightmare slowly comes to life.  Nancy Pelosi fought a lot with her far-left socialist extremist "Squad" members, primarily over the issue of impeaching President Trump.  "It's just not worth it," she tried to tell the far leftists in her camp, trying to bat off their yipping and yapping.  What the wizened old grande dame of the Democrats feared was a replay of 1998, the Republican bid to impeach Bill Clinton, which left that party out on its ear.  She knew that it would be the same for Democrats, and the latter would lose big.  She knew, and for that she fought those far leftists from low-turnout solid blue districts who were too young to remember that lesson and too arrogant to learn it.  It's pretty obvious she's ruing this turn of affairs, given that what she expected is exactly what's happening now.

House Calendar Doesn't Align with Speaker Pelosi Talking Points, and House Resolution on Impeachment.  Within the only impeachment resolution put forth by Speaker Nancy Pelosi to open an "impeachment inquiry" the resolution outlined a process.  With only eight legislative days left in 2019; and considering the resolution as adopted; the calendar doesn't match the democrat talking points.

The leader of the Abortion Party says she is concerned about "the survival of our children."
Pelosi Says Her 'Political Survival' Is Not 'More Important Than the Survival of Our Children'.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) said at her weekly press briefing last Thursday [11/21/2019] that neither her "political survival" nor Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's was "more important than the survival of our children."  "Our message to Mitch McConnell [was] ...why do you think your political survival is more important than the survival of our children?" said Pelosi.  "Not yours, not mine, not any of our political survival is more important.  And if you're afraid of the NRA, think of how afraid those children are at the prospect and then sometimes the reality of a gunman in their school."

WaPo reporter:  We're hearing behind the scenes that more House Dems are getting "cold feet" about impeachment.  I'll take the opportunity up front to double down on [another] post from Friday [11/22/2019].  I'd bet my life savings plus several internal organs that Pelosi will have 218 to impeach.  That's based on the simple reality that failing to do so at this point would cost Democrats more politically than proceeding with impeachment would.  Voters who hate Trump would be furious and voters who like Trump wouldn't give Pelosi and Schiff an ounce of credit for standing down in the end.  The president would gloat about it every day unto eternity.  Pelosi, long respected by both sides for her ability to whip votes, would be humiliated utterly.  Her legacy would be in ruins.  They'll have 218.

Why Dems are so worried after latest round of impeachment hearings.  If coup-coup Nancy Pelosi has a panic button, now would be a good time to lean on it.  With signs that Americans are tuning out the impeachment hearings, the clock is ticking on Democrats' chance to make their case.  Pelosi is clearly worried, telling fellow Dems it's a "weak response" to "let the election decide" whether President Trump should be removed.  "That dangerous position only adds to the urgency of our action, because POTUS is jeopardizing the integrity of the 2020 elections," the speaker wrote in a "Dear Colleague" letter to her House members.  The letter seemed strange enough when it became public Monday [11/18/2019], but Tuesday's hearing more than justified her fear and desperation.  With her party now having failed to hit anything close to pay dirt after three long days of public testimony, she is trying to keep her members on board the impeachment train, lest the whole effort crash in failure and disgrace.

Pelosi on Impeachment: 'Republicans Are in Denial About the Facts'.  During a Nov. 21 press conference at the U.S. Capitol, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said the reason why the impeachment inquiry does not have bipartisan support is that "Republicans are in denial about the facts."  "The Republicans are in denial about the facts," she said.  "If the Republicans do not want to honor their oath of office, then I don't think we should be characterized as partisan in that way because we are patriotic."  On the other side of the issue, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said the facts arising from the hearings are in favor of President Donald Trump.  When asked by reporters what is the strongest defense of the Republicans, he said the facts are the strongest defense, as the impeachment inquiry hearings move on.

New Impeachment Poll Shows Pelosi and Schiff May Be Setting Democrats up for a 2020 Election Disaster.  In spite of what the national media and Democrats have been saying about voter support for impeaching President Trump, the writing has been on the wall for weeks suggesting they're on a path to disaster come election time.  A new Politico-Morning Consult poll bears that out, but first, let's look at what other revealing polls have said over the last few weeks.  Roughly two weeks before the public impeachment inquiry hearings began, a Suffolk University poll showed that when it comes to the impeachment issue, the devil is in the details.  In that poll, 31% of those surveyed believed the July call between Trump and Ukrainian President Zelensky was not a big deal.  21% said that even though they felt the call was wrong, they didn't feel he should be impeached over it, meaning a total of 52% of the 1,000 registered voters surveyed believed Trump had not committed an impeachable offense with the call.

Nixon's Lessons for the Would-Be Impeachers.  One of the many galling aspects of the contemptible farce being conducted by the House Democratic leadership is the historical myth-making they glibly inflict on the country.  This is the mentality that held that the Macdonald's-like detention centers on the southern border for minors who entered the country illegally after being abandoned by their so-called families, were, to Speaker Nancy Pelosi, reminiscent of Nazi death camps.  (Doubtless the centers were the most commodious accommodation most of these unfortunate young people had ever had.)  Each asinine day in this absurd divertissement is "prayerful and solemn," Pelosi laments, adding that the hearings prove that this president's conduct was "much worse than Nixon's" and that "he should resign," too.

Nancy Pelosi Is Already Attacking the Legitimacy of the 2020 Election.  In her Dear Colleague letter pushing back against Republican anti-impeachment talking points, Nancy Pelosi wrote this:  "The weak response to these hearings has been, 'Let the election decide.'  That dangerous position only adds to the urgency of our action, because the President is jeopardizing the integrity of the 2020 elections."  Is he?  If a Republican had suggested that a presidential election was a "dangerous" notion, he would have triggered around-the-clock panic-stricken coverage on CNN and a series of deep dives in The Atlantic lamenting the conservative turn against our sacred democratic ideals.  What Pelosi has done is even more cynical.  She's arguing that if Democrats fail in their efforts to impeach Trump — and, I assume, remove him from office — then the very legitimacy of the 2020 election will be in question before any votes are cast.

A Shocking Suggestion From Speaker Pelosi.  Speaker Nancy Pelosi's suggestion that President Trump emulate President Nixon and resign is, in our opinion, a shocking démarche unworthy of her office.  And a glimpse into the predicament of the Democrats, who, though they began beating the drums for impeachment more than three years ago, still don't seem to know what charges to lay against the president.

Nancy Pelosi Tells Democrats That Impeachment Is Important Because the Voters Can't Be Trusted to Make the Right Decision in 2020.  As we've documented here in some detail, the impeachment of Donald Trump is collapsing under the weight of its own dishonesty and the pressure of the 2020 election.  The exact 'high crime' or 'misdemeanor' President Trump stands accused of has gone through three iterations after the 'collusion' and 'obstruction' failed to gain any traction.  And Pelosi, herself, seems uncertain of how to proceed with a process neither her caucus nor the voters are eager to see go further.  Sometimes, though, pressure becomes sort of the "in vino veritas" for politicians.  And impeachment pressure has had that effect on Pelosi.  Unable to find a rational argument to the two main points opposing this fake impeachment — there are no crimes and this is an election year so let the voters decide — Pelosi tried to stomp down on those opinions before they began to corrupt the GroupThink of her caucus.

Nancy Pelosi goes for slam dunk — and crashes to court.  It's no coincidence that the very word Pelosi chose to characterize Trump's behavior during his call with Ukraine's president is specifically named in the Constitution as an impeachable offense.  Article II, Section 4 provides that the "president, vice president and all civil officers of the United States shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery or other high crimes and misdemeanors."  Quid pro quo wasn't getting it.  So the left had to slap on a label that's impeachable.

The silly sanctification of Marie Yovanovitch.  [Scroll down]  The Mueller investigation and this Ukraine nonsense was and remains an attempted cover-up.  And as cover-ups go, this one has gone very badly for the cover-uppers.  Brennan, Clapper, Comey et. al. were bad enough.  The current crop of wannabe-impeachers are like the Three Stooges.  Schiff has bungled his bit of Intel committee tyranny so badly, he's recruiting Trump voters by the thousands.  Like the FSOs and the Comey crowd, Schiff thinks he is smarter than the American public, that we are easily fooled, but in fact, the American public is much smarter than these swamp-dwellers.  They are [much] smarter than Schiff.  He has made an utter fool of himself these past weeks.  Letting him chair the Intel committee was the biggest mistake of Pelosi's career.

Top Democrats Concede They're Losing The Impeachment Battle.  CNN reported Thursday evening [11/14/2019] that top Democrats are privately acknowledging that the impeachment hearings will do little to persuade the vast majority of the public that President Trump committed an impeachable offense.  According to CNN, in a private meeting earlier this week, "House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her top lieutenants were skeptical about the prospects of a dramatic shift in opinion even as public impeachment hearings began this week, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter."  Nevertheless, they intend to carry on, in the hopes that things might change. [...] It seems Democrats fault the American public, for apparently not being smart enough to understand what abuse of power is.

Pelosi gets curt with 'Mr. Republican talking points' James Rosen for basic question.  Congressional Democrats are so accustomed to being treated like royal dignitaries by the demonstrably biased left-wing mainstream media that they tend to cop an attitude whenever real journalists hit them with tough questions.  Take Your Highness Nancy Pelosi, the speaker of the House.  She's used to being celebrated as a "badass" by CNN, a network whose own analysts recently fantasized about the president's impeachment leading to her being installed as America's next president.  And so when veteran journalist James Rosen of Sinclair chose on Wednesday to treat Pelosi exactly how the mainstream media treat the president, she cried foul.

Impeachment hearings!  Is that all they've got?  [Scroll down]  Something is manifestly wrong with Adam Schiff. [...] He does not, apparently cannot, differentiate between the truth and lies. [...] He has become a joke and his own Democrat colleagues know it.  He is an embarrassment.  If she were wise, which she is not, Pelosi would shut this faux inquiry down now.  But wisdom is not her strong point.  When Trump wins the 2020 election in a landslide, the Democrats will blame Schiff.  They will never admit that Trump won because he is a great president and has gone a long way toward making American great again.  If what we saw and heard on Wednesday [11/13/2019] was any indication of what the Democrats have in support of their effort to depose him, if that is all there is, they are making the biggest mistake of their political lives.

Nervous Nancy's two alternatives.  [Scroll down]  She will end up pleasing a relatively small percentage consisting of those who are passionate about "sticking it to Trump." With an almost certain acquittal in the Senate, a celebratory Trump awaits as he proclaims ultimate victory and makes those House members who voted "Aye" pay dearly.  With the vote tentatively scheduled to give America a Christmas present it will not soon forget, we will see just how Nervous Nancy chooses to "ring in the holidays."

Schiff's impeachment fraud: 'I'd take a flamethrower to this place!'  Why Pelosi ever gave Schiff any power over anything, let alone the Intel Committee, is a mystery.  Surely, she is embarrassed by his fascist tactics in service of his obsession.  But then again, perhaps she is not.  Who knows what goes on in her addle-pated, Botoxed brain?  Is she, like Schiff, morally and intellectually challenged?  They are both making fools of themselves. [...] Is it possible she has lost all touch with reality, that she thinks Schiff and his Deep State cohorts can convince enough Republicans to abandon the most successful president since Reagan?  Hard to believe, but possible.

Who's Your Baghdadi, Now?  You would think, if you were an American and had the sense you were born with, the execution of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi would be cause for jubilation.  But if you're a Democrat, and therefore lacking the sense you were born with, it is anything but a happy occasion.  In fact, one's reaction to the news that not only was the leader of ISIS dead, but his successor was also on the express train to Hell, could serve as a Rorschach test for Americans.  Nancy Pelosi was unable to exhibit unbridled joy because, she complained, President Trump hadn't run the plan past her, Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler, before greenlighting the mission.  She was also upset because the President had alerted Russia.  He did so because the Special Ops would be flying over Russian-held territory in Syria and he didn't want them being shot down.  Also, Trump knew that, unlike the Democrats, the Russians can keep a secret.

GOP senator defends calling Pelosi 'dumb': 'What I said was accurate'.  Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) defended remarks this week in which he called Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) "dumb," saying that his comments were "accurate."  "Well, I didn't mean disrespect," he said Friday on Fox News, "but I do think what I said was accurate."  "Let me say it again:  I think that what Speaker Pelosi is doing here is not only dumb, but it's dangerous," he said, referring to the House Democrats' impeachment inquiry led by Pelosi.

Nancy Pelosi Says 'The Growing Climate Crisis is the Existential Threat of Our Time'.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) issued a statement on Monday [11/4/2019] condemning President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement and declaring that the "growing climate crisis is the existential threat of our time."

The Editor says...
There is no climate crisis.  The weather is not an existential threat.  Nobody care about global warming any more.  Even if you're as old as Nancy Pelosi, the climate is indistinguishable today from the climate in the year you were born.

Nancy Pelosi's Stall Tactics Hurt America's Economy.  We haven't had a true bipartisan victory in Washington for seemingly ages, but we are tantalizingly close to getting there.  This would be the passage of the U.S. Mexico Canada Trade Agreement (USMCA).  Both parties want this modernized version of the North American Free Trade Agreement to pass.  It is the legacy of Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton.  But this latest modernized trilateral trade deal for North America hasn't happened yet because of an endless parade of stall tactics by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.  She is blockading a vote of the 435 members of the House of Representatives.

Two Pelosi errors that could cost Democrats the election in 2020.  It is an article of faith among political analysts that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is a master strategist, and indeed her career is studded with significant accomplishments.  Yet, more recently, she has made two grievous errors that could well cost Democrats the election in 2020.  The first was putting Adam Schiff in charge of the impeachment inquiry.  The second is not reining in the so-called Squad, or the four female freshmen Democrats whose extreme progressive voices have helped push the Democrat party to the left, alienating much of the country.

Nancy Pelosi Worried 2020 Democrats Are Going Too Far Left.  Nancy Pelosi, who opened up an impeachment inquiry of Donald Trump in response to pressure from the far-left base of her party, has issued a warning to the Democrats running for president:  far-left proposals like Medicare for All and wealth taxes won't help them defeat Trump in 2020.  "What works in San Francisco does not necessarily work in Michigan.  What works in Michigan works in San Francisco — talking about workers' rights and sharing prosperity," she said at a Bloomberg News roundtable on Friday [11/1/2019].  "Remember November.  You must win the Electoral College." [...] She also warned about supporting the Green New Deal.  "There's very strong opposition on the labor side to the Green New Deal because it's like 10 years, no more fossil fuel.  Really?" she said.  Interestingly enough, Joe Biden caved to pressure and embraced the plan, despite the fact that he's supposed to be the "centrist" alternative to the crazies.

Liz Cheney calls on Nancy Pelosi to release impeachment transcripts, end 'selective leaking'.  Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., on Friday called on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to release the full transcripts of all depositions in the Trump impeachment inquiry, and demanded the end to what she called "selective leaking" of documents to the media.  "Despite the vote in the House on October 31, House Democrats continue to conduct the partisan effort to impeach the President in secret," Cheney wrote in a letter to Pelosi.

Pelosi Uncorks Impeachment Probe With Few Answers and High Risks.  Nancy Pelosi has launched a new phase of the impeachment inquiry with no explicit timetable, no defined scope of what to investigate, no guarantee the White House will cooperate and not a single Republican vote — in many ways taking Congress and the country into the exact politically perilous place she long sought to avoid.  The vote puts pressure on President Donald Trump, who now is all but certain to face a vote on articles of impeachment in the coming months.  But the onus also falls on Pelosi to finish what she started, with only the slimmest majority of public support in polls and many nervous Democrats who know voters will hold them to account for what happens.

Pelosi's Latest Sanctimonious, Hypocritical Lying, Quickly & Easily Exposed.  On Thursday Speaker Pelosi, offered one of her most dishonest, sanctimonious, pearl clutching, impeachment related moments.  And that's saying something.  The Democrat defended her latest action by saying, "This is not any cause for any glee or comfort.  This is something that is very solemn ... Nobody ... comes to Congress to impeach the president of the United States, unless his actions are jeopardizing our honoring our oath of office."  What Pelosi is deliberately ignoring is that every member of the radical "Squad", now controlling the Democrat caucus, was very much, and in some cases gleefully, preaching impeachment before coming to Congress.

A tragedy for the nation — and democracy.  Another day, another giant step on the road to ruin.  Either Nancy Pelosi has lost her mind or she really wants to dig America's grave.  The vote to formalize the impeachment jihad is a great day for Trump haters and a tragedy for democracy and common sense.  Coming a year before an election and without a compelling claim that the president committed anything remotely resembling "high crimes and misdemeanors," the action is an abuse of power for purely partisan purposes.  The timing is also exquisite.  Voting on Halloween, and on the same day when Democratic Rep. Katie Hill took to the House floor to declare herself a victim of a double standard after she was caught engaging in threesomes with her husband and a campaign aide, the picture of a party seized by shamelessness is complete.

Steve Scalise:  Pelosi Using Impeachment Probe to Influence 2020 Presidential Election.  While briefing reporters in the wake of the House Democrat's approval, along party lines, of the impeachment inquiry resolution, Scalise declared:  ["]If you look at where we are at right now, we're at an important point in history.  Clearly, there are people that we serve with that don't like the results of the 2016 election — that's their prerogative — but the country next year will be deciding who our president is going to be.  It should not be Nancy Pelosi and a small group of people that she selects that get to determine who's going to be our president.["]  He went on to say that Democrats are not interested in getting to the bottom of the allegations that triggered the impeachment effort.  Instead, their focus is solely on removing President Donald Trump from office and overturning the results of the 2016 elections
