  • Hoyer says border walls 'obviously' work, rejects Pelosi's suggestion that barrier is 'immorality'

    House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., acknowledged Wednesday on Fox News' "Special Report with Bret Baier" that border walls "obviously" work in some areas, and he rejected suggestions that barriers should be removed where they already exist. The No. 2 House Democrat additionally asserted that the question of whether to fund President Trump's proposed border wall -- a dispute at the center of the unprecedented partial federal government shutdown -- is "not an issue of morality." Hoyer's comments were seemingly at odds with the positions of other House Democrats, who have argued that border walls like the one Trump is...

    House Resolution 1 — Enforce Federal Control Over State Elections _______ If you thought the midterm elections had problems, wait until you learn about Nancy Pelosi’s plan to terminate state control over American elections. Democrats in Congress have announced their top legislative priority, and it isn’t health care, immigration, or taxes. Instead, they want to centralize power over elections in Washington, D.C. H.R. 1 is number one on the legislative agenda because it is the number one priority of House Democrats, leftist groups, deep-pocketed dark money, and those who use election process rules to help win elections — or at...

    President Trump should encourage House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to do more joint TV appearances, Newt Gingrich joked Sunday. Gingrich's comments come after Pelosi, D-Calif., and Schumer, D-N.Y., were mocked online last week for their awkward televised response to Trump's prime-time Oval Office address regarding his demand for roughly $5.6 billion in border wall funding which has resulted in a political standoff at the root of a record-breaking partial federal government shutdown. “[Schumer] and Pelosi were so bad the other night that the president ought to sort of pay them to go on TV once...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said on Saturday he will force a vote soon on a resolution to disapprove the Trump administration's decision to relax sanctions on three Russian companies connected to oligarch Oleg Deripaska…{snip} ...The U.S. Treasury announced on Dec. 20 that it would lift sanctions imposed in April on the core businesses of Deripaska, including aluminum giant Rusal its parent En+ and power firm EuroSibEnergo, watering down the toughest penalties imposed since Moscow's 2014 annexation of Crimea. After lobbying by European governments that followed the imposition of sanctions, Washington postponed enforcement of the sanctions...

    Freshman Rep. Katie Hill (D-CA) told CNN Friday that she is willing to vote for “some money for physical barriers,” as the 21st day of the partial government shutdown progressed."How can the White House, Republicans believe you 1,000 percent that you are going to give money on the wall when…Nancy Pelosi herself said no, zero dollars for the wall?" CNN’s Poppy Harlow wondered. “The way they say it is if you re-open, right, how do we know you’re going to give us any of this?”“Do you think Democrats should give any money to the wall?” Harlow asked."I think there is a...

    As the government shutdown drags on, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said enough with the memes, but he gave the Internet endless fodder with his and Nancy Pelosi’s response to President Trump’s border address. There is a crisis at the border, The Washington Post and The New York Times reported on it. Yet, CNN and other trash liberal outlets say otherwise because a) they hate Trump; and b) it would give legitimacy to the president border agenda. The Democrats wanted to respond to the president’s address. And boy, was it something otherworldly. It was immediately mocked on social media and wasn’t persuasive in...

    California Democratic Rep. Nancy Pelosi announced the creation of a House “climate crisis” committee. Already far-left Democrats are expressing their discontent with Pelosi’s plan. Pelosi announced the “climate crisis” committee after flying thousands of miles to Hawaii. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi announced Friday that Democrats would create a Select Committee on the Climate Crisis in 2019, which will be headed by Florida Democratic Rep. Kathy Castor. However, Pelosi’s announcement isn’t placating progressives in her party, such as New York Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who support “Green New Deal” legislation.

    WASHINGTON -- House Democrats are preparing to take control of the lower chamber next week by forming a new Select Committee on the Climate Crisis -- but some members of the caucus aren't happy. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), the caucus' choice for the next speaker of the House, today announced the appointment of Rep. Kathy Castor (D-Fla.), a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, to lead the select panel. "She will bring great experience, energy and urgency to the existential threat of the climate crisis," Pelosi said in a statement. "This committee will be critical to...

    Instead, Democrats are sticking to their original plan, and channeled Exxon Mobil in an announcement refusing to bar members who take fossil fuel money. Democratic leaders on Thursday tapped Rep. Kathy Castor (D-Fla.) to head a revived U.S. House panel on climate change, all but ending a dramatic monthlong effort to establish a select committee on a Green New Deal. Castor’s appointment came as a surprise to proponents of a Green New Deal. Despite weeks of protests demanding House Democrats focus efforts next year on drafting a Green New Deal, the sort of sweeping economic policy that scientists say matches...

    Representatives of 13 progressive organizations are hand-delivering over 150,000 petition signatures Thursday to the Capitol Hill office of House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.), demanding that she appoint Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) to the influential House Ways and Means Committee. The in-person action, which the groups plan to livestream, is part of an unprecedented, months-long effort by activists to secure greater representation for progressive members of Congress on the influential “money” committees: Ways and Means, Energy and Commerce, Appropriations, and Financial Services. “The grassroots progressive movement is flexing more power than ever before,” said Waleed Shahid, a spokesman for Justice...

    Congressional Democrats are ditching House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s ardent opposition to any barrier or wall along the U.S. border with Mexico, as the partial government shutdown continues and President Donald Trump takes his case directly to the border itself. ““If we have a partial wall, if we have fencing, if we have technology used to keep our border safe, all of that is fine,” Rep. Cheri Bustos (D-IL), the chairwoman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), said on CNN. Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR) also backed a barrier along the U.S. border with Mexico....

    Cher wants the government shutdown to end — even if it means giving President Trump money for his border wall. The legendary singer and outspoken liberal activist tweeted out her concerns for the American people if the shutdown remains in effect. Cher exclaimed on Wednesday, “FOR trump THIS IS POLITICAL..BUT REAL PPL ARE REALLY SUFFERING.” She called Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, a “hero,” but added “LET HIM HAVE HIS FKNG MONEY.” Cher’s tweet made headlines, with Fox News declaring, “Cher demands Pelosi end partial government shutdown, fund border wall: ‘DON’T DIE ON THIS HILL.’” Well, the Grammy winner...

    Left-wing pop icon Cher went after Democratic Congressional leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, accusing them of “putting lives in danger” by failing to end the ongoing government shutdown. In a now-deleted tweet, Cher warned that Democrats are vulnerable to the political fall out over the shutdown, and that their current refusal to negotiate makes them look like “obstructionist swamp scum.” “DEMS,STOP SHUTDOWN B4 TRUMP DOES,” she wrote. “HELL B HERO & MAKE U LOOK LIKE OBSTRUCTIONIST SWAMP SCUM‼️ “HE HAS NO SCRUPLES.HES PLAYING IT RIIGHT,& UR PLAYING RIGHT IN2 HIS HANDS.HE’LL EAT UR LUNCH & STEAL UR LUNCH ‼️YOU’LL...

    Liberal music superstar Cher is holding congressional Democrats’ feet to the fire amid the ongoing partial government shutdown. It came after President Trump delivered a prime-time address from the Oval Office on Tuesday night making the case for funding the border wall, which was followed by a response from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., who argued that the president must reopen the government in order to continue conversations about border security. Cher then took to Twitter to blast the president for promising that Mexico would pay for the wall and demanded him to...

    Democrats Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi held a press conference on Wednesday shortly after meeting with President Trump at the White House again over the border security disputes that have caused the government shutdown. They described Trump as off putting and unreasonable, completely unwilling to make a deal. He was having a "temper tantrum," according to the Democrats. "He couldn't get his way and he just walked out of the meeting," Schumer recalled.GOP Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy helped lead a press conference shortly afterward, attempting to "clarify" just about everything the Democrats said. Standing beside Vice President Mike Pence, McCarthy gave...

    President Donald Trump on Wednesday stormed out of a meeting with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer over an ongoing partial government shutdown, calling it "a total waste of time." The breakdown in already fraught negotiations over border wall funding, which have kept nine federal agencies shut down for 19 days and counting, appeared to heighten the possibility that Trump might declare a national emergency.

    Saturday was another day, with another meeting between the Trump administration and Congress, and still no breakthrough on the shutdown. So it’s back to the drawing board on Sunday. The two sides met for over two hours just like they met on Friday with the same results: nothing, nada, zip. But Donald Trump befuddled Nancy Pelosi with some questions that left her mind reeling. During one of the meetings, Trump asked Pelosi: “Why does everyone want to impeach me, Nancy?” To which Pelosi replied that no one wanted to impeach him, and tried to move back to border security. But...

    Whoopi Goldberg says newly elected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez needs to stop “pooping” on the Democratic Party and tone down her “very opinionated” nature for a while. The ladies of ABC’s “The View” were not pleased on Monday with a recent interview the New York Democrat gave on “60 Minutes” with Anderson Cooper. They accused the young Democrat of rhetorically defecating on “the shoulders of quite a few giants” before ever accruing a single legislative accomplishment. “She is very opinionated, which we like,” Ms. Goldberg said. “We like opinionated women. But it is very, very difficult when people make accusations where...
