    An ongoing feud over who will lead House Democrats next year is poised to enter a new round as early as next week, as members eager to oust House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-California, are floating a new way to do so. The latest attempt — which senior leadership aides anticipate will be futile — once again exposes that a handful of House Democrats remain concerned about whether Pelosi is dragging down candidates locked in competitive races that the party needs to win in order to gain control of the House. This group of anti-Pelosi Democrats is seeking to change...

    Leading congressional Democrats are looking to stall the process to release documents related to the Russia investigation, which President Donald Trump ordered declassified on Monday. Reps. Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff and Sens. Chuck Schumer and Mark Warner, sent a letter Tuesday asking Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, FBI Director Christopher Wray and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats to provide an “immediate briefing” to the Gang of Eight before declassifying and releasing the documents. The four Democrats expressed “profound alarm” at Trump’s order to declassify the records. Trump ordered the Justice Department and Office of the Director of National...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on Monday that she is “confident” that Democrats will win the midterm elections on November 6 and that she will be elected Speaker of the House. Pelosi added that while she did not want to talk about impeaching President Donald Trump, she also did not oppose the idea, if “the facts are there.” Pelosi served as speaker from 2007-2011, the first woman to hold the post. She pushed Obamacare through Congress, infamously saying, “We have to pass the [health care] bill so that you can find out what’s in it.”...

    2 min video at link. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (Screen Capture) (CNSNews.com) - At her Thursday press briefing, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi presented a list of issues and groups of people she believes will be “on the chopping block” if the Senate confirms Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. “If Judge Kavanaugh is confirmed, Roe v. Wade, affordable health care, voting rights, common-sense gun violence prevention, freedoms of LGBTQ Americans, communities of colors and immigrants are all on the chopping block, just to name a few,” Pelosi said. “And if he doesn't believe in stare decisis as...

    Nancy Pelosi stopped caring about what people think of her a long time ago, so she has no qualms about eating ice cream for breakfast with a stranger. Dark chocolate, two scoops, waffle cone. It’s a freezing January morning in Baltimore’s Little Italy, where Pelosi grew up in the 1950s. “You know what’s good about ice cream in this weather?” she says. “It doesn’t melt down your arm while you’re eating it.” We are sitting in an Italian café on Albemarle Street, alone save for the staff and Pelosi’s security detail, to whom she has offered coffee. The Trump era...

    A new lawsuit from a University of California health worker says her union won’t let her quit. Liliana Hernandez, who works in patient billing for UC Irvine’s health system, argues in her lawsuit that AFSCME Local 3299 is still collecting dues from her despite her repeated attempts to separate. And she wants to kill a state law that requires government to defer to union rules on such matters. She and her attorneys contend the slow response from her union and her employer violates the Supreme Court’s June decision in Janus vs. AFSCME banning public-sector labor organizations from collecting any kind...

    House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) on Thursday called President Trump’s furious reaction to an anonymous administration official's op-ed disparaging him in The New York Times a “manifestation of his instability.” Pelosi said her “first thought” was that Vice President Pence penned the opinion piece, which described efforts among staffers in the Trump administration to push back against the president's instincts. Not long after the op-ed was published Wednesday afternoon, Trump tweeted “Treason?” in all caps. He later demanded the Times identify the piece's author "for National Security purposes." “The president saying it’s treason is, again, a manifestation of his...

    WASHINGTON - The two top-ranking Democrats indicated Tuesday that their confidence is growing that their party will retake the House majority in November's midterm elections, as a new Washington Post-ABC News poll showed voters turning sharply against congressional Republicans. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., sent a letter telling colleagues on Tuesday that Democrats "must Be Ready for the prospect that we will be in the Majority in January." Pelosi said that the top Democrats on House committees will write bills reflecting the party's "For the People" campaign agenda, with an emphasis on reining in health care coats, raising wages...

    The Democratic makeover is in full swing. **SNIP** Those tensions could come to a head if Pelosi struggles to be elected speaker. Even if she wins, it could be difficult for her to preside over a more liberal caucus. James, of the Collective PAC, said that's exactly the idea. "The status quo to me doesn't mean getting rid of people who have been in office a long time," she said. "It means you can't have the same mentality, you can't have the same goals. You can't have the same playbook. You've got to switch it up."

    The Los Angeles Progressive ^ | September 4, 2018 | Ralph E. Shaffer, professor emeritus of history at Cal Poly Pomona.
    As President Donald Trump packs the Supreme Court with justices adhering to his fundamentalist brand of social conservatism, the return to an era in American history when questionable religious standards were the law of the land in most states is fast approaching. Women, ethnic minorities, and gays are about to undergo a reversal of the gains made by decisions of the high court since the 1950s. In less than two years, Trump has taken the opportunity to nominate two staunch social conservatives to the court. Justice Neil Gorsuch merely filled the vacancy created by the sudden death of Antonin Scalia,...

    President Donald Trump and the Republican Party are "so afraid" of women, people of color of members of the LGBTQ community in the midterm elections, according to Rep. Nancy Pelosi. The House minority leader (D-CA) made the remark during an interview with KQED on Friday after host Scott Shafer asked her if 2018 is going to be another "year of the woman." “It is," Pelosi said. "We're going to have so many women, and that's why the Republicans are so afraid, and that’s why President Trump is so afraid."

    Recent polls and surveys are delivering, at best, mixed news for Republicans regarding the upcoming midterm elections. The good news is that prospects have turned positive for Republicans to win Senate seats currently held by Democrats in Florida, New Jersey and Wisconsin. But looking for good news in the House is a bigger challenge. Probability assessments from various sources give Republicans a 25 to 50 percent chance of keeping control of the House. A survey from Pew Research points to greater engagement from Democratic voters -- by measures such as participating in rallies and making political contributions -- than Republicans....

    Remember this: When liberals do the right thing morally, they often injure themselves politically. They did this weekend. On Saturday, at their summer meeting, the Democratic National Committee voted to right a legitimate wrong. In doing so they will operate with greater moral rightness in their process. They may even attempt to right a past wrong. Simultaneously they will expose their biggest weakness—the truth about what America’s left-of-center party stands for. Let’s take these assertions one at a time. The new policy as adopted by the DNC on Saturday holds that on the first ballot of their nomination at the...

    We’ve been hearing it for months: the blue wave is coming. The Democrats are going to retake the House. The Democratic ballot advantage is significant. Well, if that does occur, a blue wave, congressional Democrats will move to impeach President Trump on bogus charges. There is still zero evidence to suggest the president’s campaign colluded with the Russians. Oh, what about campaign finance? The Obama campaign was fined for violations. Did he ever face impeachment charges? It’ll be a circus, a pervasive parade of nonsense, hyperbole, and liberal whining the likes of which we’ve never seen. And we’ve seen a...

    Here is Democrat Nancy Pelosi laughing at and mocking the Coal Industry in America – particularly the idea that a Coal Power Plant use to provide energy to the Capitol. Pelosi said when she became Speaker of the House, she saw to it that was stopped – “with all due respect to West Virginia” and the late Sen. Robert Byrd. You can be sure, if Democrats regain power they will try to kill the renewal and resurgence being experienced by the Coal Industry under President Donald Trump. . . .

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Wednesday said impeaching President Trump is "not a priority," despite Michael Cohen's guilty plea to campaign finance violations that implicated the president. "Impeachment has to spring from something else," Pelosi, who has long downplayed the possibility of impeachment, told The Associated Press. **SNIP** "If and when the information emerges about that, we'll see," Pelosi said. "It's not a priority on the agenda going forward unless something else comes forward."

    In a New York Magazine cover story, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting survivor turned progressive activist David Hogg lashed out at Democratic leadership, accusing them of not getting “the f**k off the plate” and giving the next generation its turn. In the glowing profile, Hogg shares that he plans to run for office when he turns 25. He is on a gap year but will begin college next year and read a “s**tload of books.” He said that Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is “a future president of the United States” and floated the idea of age limits for politicians....

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) claimed on Wednesday that Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) “strikes fear in the heart” of President Donald Trump. Pelosi was responding to Trump’s tweet that wished “Happy Birthday to the leader of the Democrat Party, Maxine Waters!” ... Over the weekend in interviews with MSNBC and PoliticusUSA, Pelosi claimed that Republicans were scared of Waters and her because the California Democrats were effective female legislators. Pelosi, who got Democrats Obamacare and infamously said that Congress had to pass the bill to find out what was in it, even said Republicans were scared of her because...
