(CNSNews.com)- House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) told a recent gathering of the Womens Political Committee that the spirits of suffragists Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Alice Paul spoke to her at the White House.
Pelosi said she heard them say: At last we have a seat at the table.
A video recently posted on Youtube shows Pelosi speaking in May describing her first meeting with President Bush in the White House after becoming part of the Democratic House leadership.
In the video Pelosi says, Hes (Bush) saying something to the effect of were so glad to welcome you here, congratulations and I know youll probably have some different things to say about what is going on--which is correct. But, as he was saying this, he was fading and this other thing was happening to me."
My chair was getting crowded in," said Pelosi. "I swear this happened, never happened before, it never happened since."
"My chair was getting crowded in and I couldnt figure out what it was, it was like this," she said.
"And then I realized Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott, Alice Paul, Sojourner Truth, you name it, they were all in that chair, they were," said Pelosi. "More than I named and I could hear them say: 'At last we have a seat at the table.' And then they were gone."
This was not the only time Pelosi has told this story. On June 6 of this year she told it during an event celebrating her 25 years of political service.
Pelosi has also told the story when speaking at colleges, including at Trinity Washington Universitys commencement on May 20, 2012. Pelosi's website contains a transcript of the tale as related in her 2005 commencement address at Goucher College in Baltimore.
Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton were activists in the womens rights movement during the mid to late 1800s. The Susan B. Anthony List, which works for pro-life womens leadership in government, uses her as a namesake. The organization claims Anthony and Stanton were strong pro-life supporters.
And Eleanor Roosevelt spoke to FLOTUS Clinton.
I suppose it is possible that they did speak to her back when Nancy was middle-aged and Susan was soon to be up and comimg.
Remember, unemployment checks boost the economy.. and let people follow their dreams.
Looks like her treatment of Colon Blow is kicking in.
And they gave Nancy Reagan crap because she supposedly consulted with a medium ...
If we could first know where we are and whither we are tending, we could better judge what to do and how to do it. We are now far into the fifth decade since a policy was initiated with the avowed object and confident promise of tolerating Marxist-Alinsky agitation. Under the operation of that policy, that agitation has not only not ceased but has constantly augmented to where there are arguably two Americas. In my opinion, it will not cease until a crisis shall have been reached and passed. "A house divided against itself cannot stand." I believe this government cannot endure, permanently, half statist and half free. I do not expect the Union to be dissolved; I do not expect the house to fall; but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing, or all the other. Either the opponents of statism will arrest the further spread of it and place it where the public mind shall rest in the belief that it is in the course of ultimate extinction, or its advocates will push it forward till it shall become accepted in all the states, Red and Blue, North as well as South.
He really knows!
I cannot believe this sort of thing doesn’t lead to dems being laughed out of DC.
It’s like the emperor isn’t wearing any clothes, everyone knows it, but that’s just “how he is.” And business goes on as usual.
Get the net.
"..she could be fun with a remote fart machine"
Both were speaking to demonic entities, guaranteed.
First thought that popped into my head when I read the headline was about the abuse Nancy Reagan endured about the same issue.
I have heard rumors from reliable sources I can’t identify that Minority Leader Pelosi got the information about Governor Romney’s taxes during her seance and passed it along to Senator Reid. That’s the basis for her claims that Senator Reid is being truthful.
It’s very offensive. Every man, every white should tell similar stories. I think women are more than half of all college students now, why must we hear this left wing prattle?
She just needs to get her Seroquel refilled.
Pssst. Nancy. This the spirit of George. Vote Republican. Vote Republican.
Nancy, get that cucumber out of your ear.
Ooops. I thought it was a cucumber. Sorry
She’s telling the truth. Pelosi has always heard voices, even when she was a child.
The second spirit will visit at the stroke of midnight, and the third spirit thereafter. Bah Humbug to you Nazi Pelozi!
