  • Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez joins protest at Pelosi's office

    11/13/2018 2:58:13 PM PST · by lowbridge · 78 replies ^ | November 13, 2018 | Grace Segers
    New York Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the most prominent of the progressive millennials elected to Congress in the midterm elections, joined a protest led by left-wing groups Justice Democrats and the Sunrise Movement outside House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's personal office calling for House Democrats to put forward a climate plan. Protesters called for Democrats, who will have a substantial majority in the House next year, to create a select committee to develop a plan to switch to 100 percent renewable energy. The demonstration was spurred by a recent United Nations report that showed that the world only has 12 years to limit global warming to manageable...

    Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) is urging fellow Democrats in the House to support House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's (D-Calif.) bid for Speaker, writing in a note to colleagues that not doing so could result in "a self-destructive leadership battle." Cummings writes in the note, which was obtained by Politico, that new Democratic members of the House "should not be pressured into voting against our party’s nominee." "That will only play into the hands of House Republicans and President Trump. Our new members promised their constituents to bring stability and common-sense to a dysfunctional Washington — not to be drawn into...

    Having taken back the House, Democrats aren't waiting around to get seated. They're getting down to business, and sorry voters, it's not the moderate legislation with Medicare fixes they ran on. Nope, they're out to Get Trump. Mike Allen of Axios quotes an insider who describes a coming " subpoena cannon :" House Democrats plan to probe every aspect of President Trump’s life and work, from family business dealings to the Space Force to his tax returns to possible "leverage" by Russia, top Democrats tell us.What they're saying: One senior Democratic source said the new majority, which takes power in...

    Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said by commenting on the Florida recount of the Senate and gubernatorial races, President Donald Trump was attempting “obstruction” and “suppression of the vote.” [snip] PELOSI: Yes to the second part. Let’s go to the first part first. My experience with the president is any time charges somebody with something he’s just projecting what he might have done himself."

    A trio of likely House committee chairmen and prospective Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Sunday laid out their oversight investigation strategy. Democrats secured sweeping victories this month in House races to secure a majority in the lower chamber of Congress. The party will soon wield the ability to launch investigations and subpoena witnesses as a result, setting up a potentially acrimonious next two years with the White House. Democrats on Sunday previewed some of those likely investigations, starting with whether Trump's actions impact special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation and including possible interference with the media and the census. The White...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said in an interview published Sunday that President Trump could still be impeached even if special counsel Robert Mueller does not indict him in his Russia investigation. "Recognize one point. What Mueller might not think is indictable could be impeachable," Pelosi told The Atlantic. Pelosi said, however, that she wants to see irrefutable evidence so that Republicans would join any impeachment effort. Some Democrats, notably top donor Tom Steyer, have argued that Trump has already committed impeachable acts. "What you have is a president who has declared war on the Constitution publicly this week....

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told The Atlantic in an interview published Sunday that she doesn't know whether President Trump is stable. “I don’t know. You can’t make a diagnosis over TV, they tell me," Pelosi said when asked if she thinks the president is stable. Pelosi, who last week announced her bid to be the next Speaker, also told The Atlantic that anyone who watched President Trump's post-election news conference last week "would know that we have to pray for our country very deeply." “Pray for him, too, but for our country,” she added. Trump has previously defended...

    “Recognize one point,” Pelosi told me during an interview in the conference room of her minority-leader suite in the Capitol late Friday: “What Mueller might not think is indictable could be impeachable.” Pelosi said people should pray for the country as long as Trump is in charge. She’s not sure of his mental condition. She thinks he’s degraded the Constitution and American values.

    American Spectator ^ | November 9, 2018 | Daniel J. Flynn
    It’s always useful to remember Nancy Pelosi got her start in Jim Jones’s San Francisco. Nancy Pelosi won more than 85 percent of the vote in her district on Tuesday. Donald Trump received less than 10 percent of San Francisco’s ballots in 2016. In hailing from a city that bans plastic straws, freebie Happy Meal toys, and the sale of fur coats, Pelosi represents a parochial cosmopolitanism that does not translate well to other districts. Whereas Speakers Paul Ryan and John Boehner answered to constituents from Middle America as they operated as national figures, Nancy Pelosi faces, again, a unique...

    WASHINGTON -- House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who said she has no doubts she'll be elected speaker of the House by her colleagues, said in her first interview since Election Day that she's proud to be branded "a San Francisco liberal... as that, the San Francisco values of St. Francis of Assisi, which I'm proud to be an instrument of God's deed." Pelosi told CNN that she intends to bring for a vote initiatives that have enjoyed bipartisan support in Congress but haven't been brought to the floor by GOP leadership, including protection for DREAMers, comprehensive immigration reform, gun...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said on Thursday that “now” is the time to talk about comprehensive amnesty legislation because Democrats have regained control of the House. Pelosi, who also said she is “100%” sure that she will regain her Speakership, told CNN’s Chris Cuomo that “now we can talk about how we can come together and put together bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform.” Conceding that illegal immigration is a losing issue for Republicans, Pelosi revealed that she suggested to Democrats running for Congress to not get into fights with the Trump administration on immigration and instead “stick with lower...

    Thousands of protesters packed Times Square on Thursday evening to demonstrate against President Trump firing Secretary of State Jeff Sessions — a move they view as a threat to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the 2016 Trump presidential campaign. The crowd of about 4,000 formed in Times Square at about 5 p.m. and headed south on Broadway toward Union Square. Some held signs that read “Trump is not above the law” and “Protect Mueller!” The crowd also chanted “No excuse! Must recuse!” as they rallied in Times Square, according to video of the protest.

    **SNIP** “Today is more than about Democrats and Republicans, it’s about restoring the constitution’s checks and balances to the Trump administration,” Pelosi, 78, said at the election night party in Washington D.C. “It’s about stopping the GOP and Mike—Mitch—McConnell’s assaults on Medicare, Medicaid, the Affordable Care Act, and the health care of 130 million Americans living with pre-existing medical conditions.” Then, raising her fist in the air, Pelosi declared: “Let’s hear it more for pre-existing medical conditions!”

    President Trump came out of Midterms stronger than ever. It happened in 2016 and it came boomeranging back with a vengeance on Tuesday night. The progressive-left’s playing a new Election Game that can be best described as “even-when-you-win-you-lose because we will never allow winners of whom we do not approve to ever govern”. In a land where politicians get away with stealing everything from the masses, we don’t need to ask, “How did it come to this?”

    You may recall that months ago, I warned of a particular scenario that would lead to an eruption of mass violence on the Left, escalating to a civil war. That scenario involved two triggers: 1) Kavanaugh being confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court, and 2) The GOP holding the House in the mid-term elections. As we all now know, the GOP lost the House, handing Dems enough of a split victory to avoid them taking to the streets in an eruption of violence. Thus, the worst case civil war scenario has been avoided… for now. But make no mistake: Democrats...

    As word trickled out Tuesday night that Democrats had recaptured the House, likely Democratic Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California wasted no time in celebrating the moment. “Tomorrow will be a new day in America,” she proclaimed. But beyond Pelosi’s soaring rhetoric is a harsh political reality: the power to shape the country no longer rests in the House. Instead, the waning influence of America’s legislature is concentrated in the Senate. And unless Democrats can take back the upper chamber, Tuesday’s victory is nothing but political fool’s gold. Here’s why. Most Americans know how Washington, D.C. is supposed to work, with...
