    San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone has responded that, despite criticism from political leaders in his home state, he will attend the March for Marriage this week, because his position requires him to act as a defender of the Catholic faith. In a letter released today, Cordileone wrote that he is required “as a bishop, to proclaim the truth—the whole truth—about the human person and God’s will for our flourishing ... especially the truth about marriage as the conjugal union of husband and wife,” Cordileone wrote. “That is what I will be doing on June 19th.” Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone Political figures...

Russia’s anti-gay laws make it inappropriate to hold the games there, Pelosi said, adding the Olympics Committee has “never been concerned about human rights.” “In light of the LGBT issues, it is like going into ancient history,” she said on NowThis News. “The whole world is moved to a different place, and that there should...

EPSTEIN | 11/17/13 10:52 AM EST House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi says House Democrats running in 2014 will embrace the Affordable Care Act in their re-election campaigns. Appearing Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” the California Democrat declined to say whether the issue would help Democrats win a House majority but said there'll be no abandoning health care as a campaign issue. “I don’t think you can tell what will happen next year, but I will tell you this, Democrats stand tall in support of the Affordable Care Act,”...

"There is something I know. The Republicans, if they choose to nominate him that's their prerogative," said Congresswoman Pelosi. "I don't even think that's going to happen." Mr. Gingrich appeared on The Washington Times affiliated radio program "America's Morning News" and forcefully responded to Rep. Pelosi. "There's almost a level of hysteria about the prospect of somebody who really wants to change Washington," said...

Her problem is that she dredged it up from a confidential swamp: a 1990's era ethics probe of the former speaker. As Noman vaguely recalls, charges were ginned up against Gingrich about the shell of a 501(c)(3) tax exempt entity that he appropriated to accept donations for a politics class he taught--or something like that--and in which he recruited Republican activists.

    Republicans in Congress are to blame for the dismal economy, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Friday. Pelosi said Republicans created uncertainty and instability by threatening to block a debt-ceiling deal, which risked causing the U.S. to default on its debt. She added that those lawmakers' constituents are now “paying the price.” “We cannot afford another 241 days of Republican refusal to pass jobs legislation,” Pelosi said in a statement. “The only plans offered by Republicans have not only failed to create jobs — they actually have destroyed them.” Pelosi offered the statement after the Labor Department released a...

    It is a sign of how bad things are for Democrats that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's best shot at keeping her job come November is to lose no more than 38 seats in Congress. At 39, Republicans would take control of the chamber, and Pelosi would hand the gavel to Republican leader John Boehner and almost certainly face a coup attempt from within a demoralized new minority. Control of the House is "on the bubble," said Larry Sabato, director of the University of Virginia's Center for Politics. He now projects that Republicans will come up just short, but cautioned, "We're...

    Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- Nancy Pelosi further ditched her Catholic credentials again as she was unable to answer a reporter's question about whether Jesus Christ should have had his right to life protected from conception. Earlier this year, Pelosi said she has an obligation to pursue public policy “in keeping with the values” of Jesus. Yet, asked by a CNS News reporter late last week whether Jesus has the right to life, Pelosi couldn't agree. At her July 29 press briefing, CNSNews asked: “You said at a recent Catholic Community Conference that your favorite word was ‘The Word, as in...

At least nine people were killed by Israeli naval commandos during the May 31 raid on ships carrying aid for the isolated Gaza region, which is under an Israeli blockade.The legislation, sponsored by Supervisors John Avalos and Sophie Maxwell, has more than two dozen "whereas" clauses.

    (Washington, DC) -- Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is rapidly losing popularity. A telephone poll taken late last week shows 48-percent of Americans don't approve of how Pelosi is doing her job. The CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll comes as the California Democrat faces intense criticism over what she knew and when about government use of enhanced interrogation techniques. Last week, Pelosi said in a news conference that the CIA lied to Congress in 2002 and 2003 about its use of interrogation methods like waterboarding on terror suspects. Pelosi's new 39-percent approval rating makes her less popular than other congressional...

Usually a master of message discipline, Pelosi has been thrown off balance by a mounting firestorm over whether she or her staff learned six years ago that intelligence officials were using extreme tactics such as waterboarding. For weeks, the Speaker has insisted she didn’t, though a declassified report last week suggested otherwise. And Republicans, sensing a rare opportunity, are moving to keep the heat on the discrepancy over competing versions of what...

But perhaps the most ironic fact of the 2008 election cycle is this: John McCain will win the 2008 election because the war in Iraq was not a war for oil. Since the liberation of Iraq in March 2003, liberals have been screaming that the...

    Whatever her official posture, Nancy Pelosi is not neutral in the Democratic primary. Typically, for instance, someone who is neutral wouldn’t say that victory by one of the candidates would be “harmful.” That’s essentially how Pelosi, the supposedly impartial House Speaker, has characterized the prospective nomination of Hillary Clinton. “If the votes of the superdelegates overturn what happens in the elections, it would be harmful to the Democratic Party,” Pelosi said in an interview for ABC’s “This Week” that was taped late last week. That just so happens to be the only plausible scenario under which Clinton could still get...

The House was on track to consider legislation next week that would give President Bush $50 billion for operations Iraq and Afghanistan but insist that he begin withdrawing troops. The measure identifies a goal of ending combat by December 2008, leaving only enough soldiers and Marines behind to fight terrorists, train Iraqi security forces and protect U.S. assets.

Several House members said they would go along with the bill negotiated with the Senate in a bid for party unity despite their desire for an earlier, binding withdrawal date. The House vote scheduled Wednesday would come as the top U.S. commander in Iraq, Gen.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is proving once again that the Democrat label of “party of the people” is simply that: a label. Now, the San Francisco liberal is complaining about the size of the House speaker’s jet and requesting one much larger than Republican Dennis Hastert was provided. As noted in a FOX News story, following the attacks of September 11, 2001, “the Pentagon agreed to provide the House speaker, who is second in the line of presidential succession, with a military plane for added security during trips back home.” C-20 twin-engine aircraft Republican Dennis Hastert was the first speaker...

    If Bill Clinton was Elvis, Hillary was the Statue of Liberty, inspired by Pelosi's triumph (more about that in a future story) and welcoming the huddled masses, who were pushing each other out of the way to take pictures with her. At night, we gathered at the National Building Museum for a celebration concert and Democratic Party fundraiser. Filmmaker Peter Kaufman, a friend of Christine Pelosi's, set the tone of the evening's festivities. He quoted someone else he'd heard that day: "She's the most powerful Italian since Caesar.''

    Forget the House leadership election and the intrigue that has surrounded it. The real question is: Does the new Democratic leadership in the House have a clue about what to do in Iraq?I think you know the answer to that. But just for the record, it’s no. And we’ve known that for a long time.Last December, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was asked by the Washington Post what Democrats would do about the war if they were to win power.This is the Post’s account of her answer:“Pelosi said Democrats will produce an issue agenda for the 2006 elections but it will...

    Elizabeth Dole sounded desperate last week. Trying to inspire dispirited Republicans, the head of the party's Senatorial Campaign Committee wrote a fund-raising letter urging the GOP faithful to rally, because if Democrats seize power they will "call for endless investigations, congressional censure and maybe even impeachment of President Bush." It's a sad truth of politics that if you can't inspire your voters with a positive vision, you scare them. But then along came House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to say that, yes, Sen. Dole is exactly right. In a Washington Post interview, Pelosi outlined her plans if the Democrats take...
  • Pelosi's 'Lily-White, Republican Only' Membership Breached!(bug-eyed airhead from San Francisco)

    Pity poor Nancy Pelosi. Her Culture of Corruption campaign strategy for retaking the U.S. House seemed to be going so well. But then a funny thing happened to the bug-eyed airhead from San Francisco: Democrats assaulted Capitol Hill police, drove under the influence of pills and/or alcohol, and were allegedly involved in bribery. The latest stray Democrat involves Rep. William Jefferson, implicated in a bribery scheme as a result of two separate guilty pleas. Jefferson joins Cynthia McKinney and Patrick Kennedy on Pelosi's "Do Not Send Xmas Card" list for 2006. Between them, McKinney, Kennedy, and Jefferson have ripped to...

    Nancy Pelosi just made a public statement on the resignation of Lott. Not TWO SENTENCES into the statement, she mentioned the election in Georgia where, she claims "the Republicans exploited white racist sentiment about the Confederate flag." This comes on the heels of similar statements by Bill Clinton yesterday. Batten down the hatches, folk. If you're a conservative and a Republican, you're going to be a "racist" for the next two years!
