    The Democrats swept to power in Congress by campaigning in a way that has been successful for Democrats for generations. “Republicans will take away your health care,” they said, after having focus-grouped it. Now we are preparing for a 2020 campaign in which Donald Trump and Republicans can as easily advertise to the public: “Democrats will take away cows, and your car.” What happened to Democrats? Back in November, it looked like Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic House caucus had found the perfect plan for their party in the era of Trump: Avoid talking about impeachment and stick to simple...

    OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said on Saturday she had made clear in a meeting with U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi at the Munich Security Conference the importance of the U.S. lifting tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada. Freeland said that while Canada is now focused on its domestic ratification process for the U.S.-Mexico-Canada (USMCA) trade deal, it remains strongly opposed to the Section 232 tariffs on steel and aluminum. “The Canada position is now that we have concluded (USMCA) that is all the more reason why the tariffs must be lifted,” she...

    “It’s a heck of a turnaround,” MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough said at the start of “Morning Joe” on Thursday, as he cited President Donald Trump’s rising poll numbers — despite the government shutdown. A Gallup poll conducted Feb. 1-10 shows Trump with 44 percent approval — up from 37 percent in mid-January. “The latest increase in approval is mainly the result of political independents’ improved opinions of Trump,” Gallup noted. Scarborough blamed Democrat “overreach” for boosting Trump, and he urged Democrats to be guided by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who “knows how to beat Donald Trump.” “Democrats can’t afford any more...

    Just hours after apologizing for making comments deemed anti-Semitic, Rep. Ilhan Omar retweeted a thread defending her claim that campaign contributions from the American Israel Public Affairs Committee buy support for the group’s positions. Ms. Omar praised the writer, Ady Barkan, who told of being a staffer on a long-shot congressional campaign in 2006 when the candidate agreed to take stances on two issues in exchange for a maximum contribution from AIPAC. “Your courage can’t be matched. I am often in tears thinking about how you won’t be with us in this fight and how I am going to miss...

    House Democrats reportedly will not strip Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) of her committee assignments after she apologized for tweets suggesting that American lawmakers were motivated to defend Israel by money. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) told Roll Call that "of course" Democrats would not strip Omar of committee assignments like Republicans did to Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa.) after he questioned how terms like "white supremacy" became offensive. “I don’t think she’s anti-Semitic,” Hoyer reportedly said. “She did apologize. The key will be that when we make a mistake like that, conscious or unconscious, that we don’t repeat it. That...

Omar's apology came after she spoke with Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who along with other House Democratic leaders called on her to apologize for the "use of anti-Semitic tropes" about Jewish people and money. "Anti-Semitism is real and I am grateful for Jewish allies and colleagues who are educating me on the painful history of anti-Semitic tropes. My intention is never to offend my constituents or Jewish Americans as a whole. We have to always be willing to step...

    BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — The audience at Clive Davis’ white-hot gala included Barbra Streisand, Joni Mitchell and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, but it was House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who got the most requests to take a selfie. Pelosi received rock star treatment Saturday night from attendees at the annual pre-Grammy event, which also featured a stunning tribute to the late Aretha Franklin, an artist Davis worked closely with for decades. Pelosi’s sarcastic handclap and smirk to President Donald Trump at his State of the Union address went viral last week and launched hundreds of memes. So when Davis announced that she...

    Full headline: Rep. Judy Chu thinks POTUS, VP should have to release their tax returns but not Nancy Pelosi — she’s wrong on both countsSince before the 2016 election Democrats (and some Republicans) have pushed POTUS Donald Trump to release his tax returns but after initially pledging to do so once auditors were finished with them, he has changed his mind. Now the new House Democrat majority wants to force the president to release his returns, along with Vice President Mike Pence under legislation known as H.R. 1. On Jan. 3, the first day of the 116th Congress, Rep. John...

    Pelosi: Virginia Scandals Don’t Damage Democratic Party’s National Brand BY: Andrew Kugle Follow @AndrewJKugle February 7, 2019 12:56 pm Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) dismissed the idea that the numerous scandals plaguing Virginia Democrats will have any impact on the party's national brand. "With everything that's been going on with Virginia, the governor, the attorney general here … does that filter down and damage the national Democratic brand in any way?" Fox News congressional reporter Chad Pergram asked. "No, it does not," Pelosi responded. "They will resolve — the Virginians will resolve their issues that they have...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez may be the leading voice behind a left-wing push for a Green New Deal, but the New York Democrat won't be serving on a newly created House committee tasked with combating climate change. **SNIP** On Thursday, both Pelosi and Ocasio-Cortez confirmed that she was invited to be on the panel but declined the offer. "She did, in fact, invite me to be on the committee," Ocasio-Cortez said. "I don't think that this is a snub."

    Maybe Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will have to be satisfied being merely green with envy. The most visible House Democrat on climate change won’t get a seat on Nancy Pelosi’s select committee addressing the issue. The Hill reports that Pelosi appointed three other frosh Democrats to the panel, which makes the snub even more obvious: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday named eight Democrats to the new special climate change committee, but Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.) was not among them.The panel, which is charged with examining climate change and steps to mitigate it, will include lawmakers with a wide range...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Wednesday mocked the “New Green Deal” just hours before its outline was unveiled — the latest example of the Democrat Party’s widening split between establishment lawmakers and its progressive wing on how to tackle “climate change.” Democrats including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) are calling for a Green New Deal intended to transform the United States economy to combat climate change and create thousands of jobs in renewable energy. The freshman lawmaker and Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA) are teaming up on the plan, which aims to eliminate all carbon emissions in U.S. energy production by...
