    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer rushed out to celebrate the $1.3 trillion Omnibus bill that passed Congress today. The record spending bill funds all of the Democrat Party’s pet projects and denies funding for Trump’s border wall Democrats loved it! Chuck Schumer cheered the bill: “In a certain sense we were able to accomplish more in the minority than we had the presidency or were even in the majority.” Minority leader Nancy Pelosi added: “I think one of the reasons they rushed it through they didn’t want their colleagues to see what was in...

    This week the US Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that job openings increased to a record 6.3 million. The number of openings now equals the number of currently unemployed Americans. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) assailed these statistics, saying "this is the economic disaster our Party tried to avert, but the GOP rammed through their tax cut, which as we now see, has created a serious labor shortage. Millions of unemployed Americans will now be pressured into taking jobs they'd rather not do." Pelosi also contended that "these statistics validate the foolishness of the Administration's determination to throttle immigration....
  • Republicans warn: Nancy Pelosi, taxes not enough to win midterms

    03/21/2018 6:39:09 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 33 replies
    Republicans are worried that touting this year's tax cut bill and tying Democrats to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., won't be enough to hold the House and Senate in the November midterms. While GOP lawmakers maintain that both are important campaign issue, some believe the party is leaning too heavily on them, particularly in light of some predictions that they are about to lose upwards of 45 House seats. Rep. Conor Lamb's, D-Pa., likely victory over Rick Saccone in Pennsylvania last Tuesday also showed both arguments can be neutralized. "I think the bigger challenge for members is defining themselves,"...

    A few hours after Conor Lamb, the Pennsylvania Democrat, claimed victory in a House race with a vow to oppose his party’s leader, Nancy Pelosi, the once-and-perhaps-future speaker was explaining to a group of female congressional candidates why she did not retire after 2016. She intended to do so after Hillary Clinton won, Ms. Pelosi recalled Wednesday at a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee reception here. But she stayed to ensure Washington had at least one woman in power. To some lawmakers in the room who described her remarks, the message was clear: Ms. Pelosi is not going anywhere - a...
  • Fmr Clinton Pollster Mark Penn: Conor Lamb Came Out Against Nancy Pelosi and Won

    Former Clinton pollster Mark Penn weighed in on Pennsylvania’s 16th congressional district special election result, crediting Rep.-elect Conor Lamb’s (D-PA) victory to the candidate going against the far left like Nancy Pelosi. “[A]fter so much talk that the party was moving to Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders [the special Pennsylvania congressional election] really reaffirms the power of a centrist Democrat,” Penn told New York AM 970 radio’s “The Cats Roundtable” host John Catsimatidis. “I mean, Conor Lamb really took a lot of centrist positions. He backed a lot of what President Trump was saying. And he came out explicitly against...

    House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) predicted House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) will be one of Democrats' "biggest impediments" in recapturing the majority in the lower chamber during midterm elections. Republicans on the Hill this week have said Conor Lamb won in the Pennsylvania special election because he emphasized that he wouldn't vote for Pelosi in party leadership elections and also highlighted his personal positions that aligned closely with the GOP. "You can look the special election of Pennsylvania and see a lot of things. One of the things we saw is both candidates run against Nancy Pelosi and...

    Nancy Pelosi welcomes your hatred. Okay, that may be an exaggeration. But when the Republican Party spends so much of its time talking about her, you'd think she'd be a bit more perturbed. And there's no sign she is. She has good reason. We just saw yet another election in which Republicans tried everything they could do to tie the Democratic candidate to Pelosi, and he won anyway. Conor Lamb, the victor in that Pennsylvania special election, said at the campaign's outset that he wouldn't be voting for Pelosi for speaker in 2019 if he were elected, since he thought...

    Thursday at her weekly press briefing, Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said GOP attacks against her leadership during congressional races were due to Republicans being opposed to her hometown San Francisco, LGBT and “poor children.” On Democrat Conor Lamb’s victory, Pelosi said, “So it was a very issues-oriented campaign. As part of it, was millions of dollars that’s coming in from the Koch brothers, and that will happen all over the country, demonizing me as the leader of the Democratic Party. I just wanted him to win. I don’t think that really had that much impact on the race....

    President Donald Trump praised Conor Lamb, the winner of the Congressional special election in Pennsylvania, for running a smart campaign on his agenda. “He said very nice things about me. I kept saying, is he a Republican? He sounded like a Republican to me,” Trump said. “But I guess when you’re popular in a certain area, that’s probably a good tactic.” Trump made his remarks during a closed-door fundraiser in Missouri on Wednesday evening. Audio of his remarks leaked to several media outlets. “It’s a pretty smart race, actually,” Trump admitted. “But he ran and he ran on that basis....

    Acting ICE Director Thomas Homan had some strong words Tuesday for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who accused the Trump administration and ICE agents of carrying out "cowardly attacks" on illegal immigrants. Pelosi issued the statement after the Justice Department filed a lawsuit against California, claiming three recently passed state laws are deliberately interfering with federal immigration enforcement. “The people of California will not be bowed by the Trump administration’s brazen aggression and intimidation tactics," the California Democrat said. "Californians will continue to proudly keep our doors open to the immigrants who make America more American. We will fight this...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s past comments on ousted Secretary of State Rex Tillerson haunted her Tuesday after she cast the latest development as a form of capitulation to Russia. Months of policy disagreements came to a head this week between President Trump and Mr. Tillerson in a single tweet: “Mike Pompeo, Director of the CIA, will become our new Secretary of State. He will do a fantastic job! Thank you to Rex Tillerson for his service!” Mrs. Pelosi released a statement which called the move an attempt to curry favor with Moscow, based on Tillerson’s criticism of the Kremlin...

    Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi issued this statement after President Trump fired his Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and announced CIA Director Mike Pompeo as his replacement: “Secretary Tillerson’s firing sets a profoundly disturbing precedent in which standing up for our allies against Russian aggression is grounds for a humiliating dismissal. President Trump’s actions show that every official in his Administration is at the mercy of his personal whims and his worship of Putin. “It is no wonder that the President has trouble attracting high-caliber people to his Administration when he undercuts and humiliates those he supposedly respects....

    After appearing on an episode of "RuPaul's Drag Race: All Stars," House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that politicians could learn a thing or two from drag queens. Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter about her appearance on the show Thursday night, Pelosi said, "This idea of people believing in themselves, being themselves, taking pride in themselves, is not just a lesson for politicians but for everyone in the country. And that's why I was so excited and couldn't resist being on the show." "RuPaul's Drag Race: All Stars" airs on VH1 and features drag queens competing against one another a...

    Nancy Pelosi hasn't exactly been in clover since she disdainfully sniffed that $1,000 worker bonuses were just " crumbs " following the Republican passage of tax cuts. She was so against those that she screeched that " people are going to die !" if the tax cuts dared pass in Congress. After the tax cuts did, just as in Aesop's tale of the fox and the grapes, she called the resulting unexpected bonuses "crumbs." Apparently, the fallout has been so bad on that she's backtracked on her remarks, putting out this tweet, which was noticed by Fox News: Certainly we...

    Nancy Pelosi Backtracks on ‘Crumbs’ Tax Reform Comment: ‘We Are Thankful Whenever Workers Get Bonuses’ House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) backtracked on her “crumbs” comment about tax reform, admitting that “we are thankful whenever workers get bonuses.” Pelosi admitted in a tweet on Thursday, “Certainly we are thankful whenever workers get bonuses. But it is incredibly telling that companies by-and-large chose to give out one-time bonuses, and not long-term raises.” Pelosi’s backtrack is a stark contrast to comments she made in February where she called the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act “unpatriotic” at a town hall in Arizona.

Pelosi was speaking at the Progressive Caucus Strategy Center Summit when she said her top motivation is bringing children out of poverty. She then compared herself to armored warriors who "eat nails for breakfast." "My motivation is: one in five children in America lives in poverty. I can’t handle it. I just can't handle it," she said.

    During her weekly press conference Thursday, House Minority Leader’s train of thought seemed to ran out of gas ... 16 times. The 77-year old California congresswoman repeatedly paused in the middle of her sentences while searching for her next words. In all, Pelosi stumbled 16 times over just 15 minutes. At times, Pelosi stared vacantly into the distance as she gathered her thoughts. "This week we had ... March 5th ... marked the 6th month -- the end of the ... time frame," Pelosi stumbled, attempting to explain the expiration of President Trump's deadline on reforming Deferred Action Against Childhood...
