    Monday on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said President Donald Trump’s executive orders addressing the economic crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic were an “illusion” meant to bolster the stock market and cut benefits to children who are “food insecure in our country.” Pelosi said, “What we’re seeing is illusion. It’s important to enlarge the issue to understand that what the president does is say I’m doing things to help people, which he isn’t, and then the stations pick it up and say the president is doing something to help people, and it’s all about one thing,...

    The American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA) today applauded President Donald Trump for supporting Americans by signing Executive Orders that extend unemployment benefits and support those impacted by COVID 19, while urging Congress to come together swiftly and pass meaningful, bipartisan legislation that helps support the hotel industry and the millions of employees we support. The following statement is attributable to Chip Rogers, president and CEO of AHLA: "Millions of America's hotel workers remain out of work as our industry struggles to survive the pandemic. We applaud the actions taken by President Trump in support of Americans who are without...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi slammed the executive actions President Trump took this weekend to provide assistance for Americans struggling amid the coronavirus as weak and an "illusion" on "Fox News Sunday" with Chris Wallace, as she defended Democrats' stance asking for trillions more in aid as negotiations with the White House and Senate Republicans have stalled. "No, in fact, what the president did is -- I agreed what the Republican senator said -- is unconstitutional slop," Pelosi, D-Calif, said, alluding to a statement Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., put out criticizing Trump's executive actions. She also emphasized the alleged "weakness" of...

    The speaking lineup for this month's Democratic National Convention is beginning to take form, with several high-profile Democrats securing spots. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), a progressive superstar, is expected to have some sort of speaking slot, a House member told Politico, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and 2016 presidential nominee Hillary Clinton will also speak, according to Axios. Warren and Clinton are reportedly slated to speak on Aug. 19, the day before former Vice President Joe Biden will formally accept the 2020 Democratic nomination. Other Democrats expected to have speaking slots are Biden's wife, Jill Biden, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.),...
  • Trump rips ‘pathetic’ Deborah Birx for response to Nancy Pelosi criticism

    Trump’s public rebuke of Birx sharply contrasts with his frequent denial of tension with fellow task force member Dr. Anthony Fauci, who emerged as a hero to Trump critics for his willingness to fault the US pandemic response. “So Crazy Nancy Pelosi said horrible things about Dr. Deborah Birx, going after her because she was too positive on the very good job we are doing on combatting the China Virus, including Vaccines & Therapeutics. In order to counter Nancy, Deborah took the bait & hit us. Pathetic!” Trump tweeted. Birx, who is also the US government’s HIV/AIDS ambassador, said Sunday...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., had a bitter exchange with "PBS NewsHour" anchor Judy Woodruff Tuesday over the ongoing stalemate on Capitol Hill between lawmakers negotiating a so-called "Phase 4" coronavirus aid bill. At one point in their interview, Woodruff asked Pelosi about the "flexibility" GOP lawmakers are showing in terms of allocating more money for state and local governments, as well as Republican arguments that "much of the money" allocated in the CARES Act "has not even been spent yet."

    It’s been scrawled across the pavement in front of government buildings in bright yellow paint, etched into cardboard signs and poster boards as a rallying cry during protests and addressed as a possibility in countless city council meetings. “Defund the police.” While cities across the country continue to reel in the aftermath of the police killing of George Floyd, some city officials, politicians and activists are taking action, working on measures aimed to divert funding away from what they view as bloated police budgets, and toward community-based organizations. The objective, commonly summed up with the controversial phrase, has both ardent...
  • Poll: 7-in-10 Voters Support Trump’s Exclusion of Illegal Aliens in Congressional Apportionment

    About 7-in-10 United States registered voters support excluding illegal aliens when it comes to determining representation in Congress, a new poll reveals. A poll by Rasmussen Reports and Just the News Daily finds that voters overwhelmingly support excluding illegal aliens from congressional apportionment counts, which determine how many representatives each state receives in Congress. Last month, Trump signed a memorandum that ensures American citizens receive proper representation in Congress without being minimized by apportionment counts inflated by the illegal alien population. Overall, about 70 percent of all voters said they support excluding illegal aliens from such counts — including nearly...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told ABC's "This Week" on Sunday that she does not have confidence in Dr. Deborah Birx, the coordinator for the White House Coronavirus task force after Politico reported that she (Pelosi) said Friday in a closed-door meeting with Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows that "Deborah Birx is the worst." RADDATZ: Madam Speaker, I want to ask you -- we just have a couple of more minutes here -- Politico reported that in a closed meeting on Friday, you accused Dr. Deborah Birx of the Coronavirus Task Force of spreading...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi trashed Dr. Deborah Birx during a private meeting with White House officials on Thursday night — calling the coronavirus task force coordinator “horrible” and “the worst,” according to a report. Pelosi (D-Calif.) moaned about Birx to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and chief of staff Mark Meadows during negotiations on Capitol Hill about further coronavirus aid, Politico reported Friday afternoon. “Deborah Birx is the worst. Wow, what horrible hands you’re in,” Pelosi said to the pair, accusing the physician of spreading misinformation about the pandemic, the report said.
  • Fauci, Birx recommend wearing goggles, face shields in addition to masks

    Fox ^ | 7/30/20 | Alexa Mae Asperin and Nexstar Media Wire
    That’s in addition to face masks. The CDC has already been recommending people wear some kind of eye covering, but neither the CDC nor Dr. Fauci has pushed wearing goggles because they are not as easily available as face masks. Dr. Deborah Birx, the White House coronavirus response coordinator, recommended the use of face shields in addition to masks. “The mask protects others, to block those droplets and block that contamination that happens when you speak or sing or talk, or even breathe,” Birx said on “Fox & Friends” Thursday morning. “The thing about the face shields — we think...

    The greatest deflection tactic in American history took place on Thursday. – Here it is: Note the time stamp on that tweet. It was put out by the President 16 minutes after the Trump Administration released the GDP numbers for the second quarter. Those numbers weren’t good; but then, no one expected them to be good, given that the second quarter was when our country went literally insane on the catastrophic advice of Dr. Anthony Fauci (more on that little menace to society in a moment). President Trump obviously didn’t want to see the corrupt new media mis-reporting on those...

    Dr. Deborah Birx, the White House coronavirus response coordinator, on Thursday said face shields that block people from touching their eyes can be useful in helping prevent the spread of the coronavirus. “Here’s the thing about the face shield in addition to the mask: the mask is to protect others,” Dr. Birx said on “Fox & Friends.” “The thing about the face shields - we think that that could protect the individuals and that it would decrease the ability for them to touch their eyes and spread [the] virus as well as those droplets coming towards them.” Dr. Anthony Fauci...

    The House speaker said last year that Tlaib and rest of 'The Squad' 'didn't have any following' House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) endorsed Michigan congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D.) on Wednesday in her Democratic primary contest, in a change of course from her past criticisms of Tlaib and other members of "The Squad." "Rep. Tlaib never stops fighting for her district, which she is proud to represent," Pelosi said. "And I am proud to endorse her for re-election." Tlaib and the three other far-left House Democrats known as "The Squad" have had a contentious relationship with Pelosi and the Democratic...

    One by one, they passed through the grand Capitol Rotunda to pay respects to the civil rights icon. It was a solemn display of unity as congressional leaders from both sides of the aisle offered praise for longtime Georgia Rep. John Lewis. There was House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who called Lewis the “conscience of the Congress”; and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who praised him as a model of courage. Vice President Mike Pence and former Vice President Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee, came as well. But missing was a man whose absence spoke volumes: President Donald Trump. “No,...

    Great news in California. If you can’t go to church why not head off to your favorite gay bathhouse. Gay bathhouses could have an easier time returning to San Francisco, after the board of supervisors approved an ordinance that would ease restrictions for adult sex venues on July 21 with a unaminous [this typo is not mine] vote.This will amend the Heath Code, requiring the Director of Health to “adopt minimum health and safety standards” for commercial adult sex venues. It will also remove decades-old policies that required these businesses to monitor sexual activities and prohibited private rooms and locked...
