    It’s very sad that Nancy Pelosi and her sidekick, Cryin’ Chuck Schumer, want to protect illegal immigrants far more than the citizens of our country. The United States cannot stand for this. We wants safety and security at our borders!

    When Schumer had an opportunity to help pass a bipartisan transparency bill last week, he refused.... The bill in question is the 'Taxpayers Right to Know Act'....It would require federal agencies to post an inventory of their programs. This inventory would detail how much programs cost, how many employees are required to run them, who the intended beneficiaries are, and how effective they have been.....It’s a good-government bill that 'combines transparency with performance metrics' to try to find out 'what is working well and what isn't.' The bill was such a no-brainer, noncontroversial step forward in the transparency movement that...

    President Trump signed the 1.2 trillion dollar Omnibus bill today with open frustration over both the process and the product of that bill. Meanwhile, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer heaped praise on Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan and Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for their help in what Pelosi called a great bill for the American worker. What wasn’t said was how the Republican and Democrat leadership worked together to force POTUS Trump’s hand and create a voter backlash they hope will fracture Mr. Trump’s base of support among millions of Americans. image: http://dcwhispers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/aaa355.jpg “How could he sign this...

    The Senate is sitting on 78 of President Trump’s nominees who have already been passed out of committee but can’t get a floor vote. Chuck Schumer and his loyal band of Democrats accomplish this obstruction by objecting to unanimous consent that a nomination be taken up. This triggers a motion for cloture which brings with it 30 hours of floor debate. The Wall Street Journal, in an editorial denouncing the Democrats’ practice, notes that cloture votes used to be almost unheard of for nominations other than judges. At this point in the past four presidencies combined, only 15 executive-branch nominees...

SCHUMER: Overall, we Democrats are very happy with what we’ve been able to accomplish on a number of very important priorities to the middle class in America: infrastructure, education, opioid treatment, mental health, child care. This spending agreement brings that era of austerity to an unceremonious end and represents one of the most significant investments in the middle class in decades. RUSH: I don’t know, folks.

    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...

    Capitol Hill Democrats have rejected a White House bid to extend protections for so-called Dreamer immigrants in exchange for $25 billion in funding for President Donald Trump’s long-sought border wall as Washington talks on a $1.3 trillion catchall spending bill hit a critical stage on Monday. Disputes remain over immigration enforcement and a smaller infusion of wall funding, as well as a major rail project that pits Trump against his most powerful Democratic adversary, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. Monday’s developments were described by congressional aides in both parties who spoke on condition of anonymity because the talks remain...

    Democrats need a positive platform - not just anti-Trump sentiment - to win in this fall's midterm elections, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Monday. "You cannot just run against Donald Trump," the New York Democrat said. "It is the job of we Democrats to put together a strong, cohesive economic group of proposals aimed at the middle class and those struggling to get there." It was Trump's ability to connect with those voters, particularly working- and middle-class whites in the industrial midwest, that delivered him the presidency in 2016. But the president's poor approval ratings, Democrats' ability to flip...

    Immigration activists are furious that 73 House Democrats, including seven members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, voted for a bipartisan spending bill that doesn't include a DACA fix. The early-morning House vote ended a brief government shutdown precipitated by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and in the process passed a two-year spending proposal that included a bevy of Democratic priorities, but not immigration. “Last night immigrant young people and people of conscience fighting for justice were betrayed by both parties,” said Greisa Martínez Rosas, a DACA recipient and advocacy director for United We Dream, an immigrant youth activism network. Senate Democrats...

    Trump's proposal to hold a pro-military parade has excited much heavy breathing and political posturing from Democrats. To wit: Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.): "I think confidence is silent and insecurity is loud. America is the most powerful country in all of human history; you don’t need to show it off.” Rep. Adam Smith (D-Calif.): “A military parade of this kind would also be a departure from the values of our constitutional democracy." Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.):"Because authoritarian regimes like Russia and North Korea hold massive military parades does not mean that we must as well." Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.):...

    Senate leaders reached a two-year budget deal, but Sen. Rand Paul is holding up a Senate vote. Congress must pass a deal before midnight to avoid a shutdown. The government will shut down. The Senate is in recess until 12:01 a.m. The Senate has gone into recess until 12:01 a.m. ET, which means the government will shut down at midnight. The next procedural vote to advance the budget deal will not happen before 1 a.m. ET.

    Despite everything Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said on Wednesday following the announcement of a new two-year budget deal — unlike others — Schumer surprisingly hasn't said much on the topic of a possible military parade in Washington D.C. However, back in 2014, Schumer called for precisely what we’ll most likely see Democrats — and some Republicans — rally against in the near future, a military parade. They’ll all call the parade contrary to what a democracy should be. They’ll also try to make it almost completely about how President Trump is just trying to boost his own ego. We’ll hear...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has announced a deal with Senate Democrats to fund the government and set spending levels for defense and nondefense programs over the next two years. The legislation would avert a government shutdown on Friday, when federal funding is due to expire, and boost defense and nondefense programs. It also lifts the debt ceiling to March 2019, which White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders hailed as a decision that would move Congress away from "crisis-to-crisis budgeting." The deal is backed by McConnell and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), and will almost certainly be...

    I have no idea what Nancy Pelosi was flapping her jibs about all day yesterday. Two old bags and a crone walk into a bar…I do know that instead of working with her fellow members of the House to reach a resolution on the DACA/immigration problem she spent the day protesting the impasse. The record-setting 8 hour speech was Nancy’s allocated 1 minute floor time - proving yet again that if you give a Democrat an inch they’ll take a mile.I think Nancy called on Hillary’s Dr. Feelgood before the speech and got one of his magic reanimation shots. The...
  • Nancy Pelosi’s filibuster-style speech tops eight hours in bid to force immigration votes

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi took the rare step Wednesday of giving a marathon speech supporting Democrats’ attempts to legalize the status of young immigrant “dreamers,” in a bid to pressure Republicans to act. Her more than eight-hour speech ranked as the longest given by a member of the House of Representatives in at least a century, possibly ever, focusing on an issue that has dominated the Democratic agenda in recent months. But it also came as her caucus began three days of closed-door meetings to craft a 2018 agenda that can win wider appeal in November’s elections. .....

    The Evening Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) The all-knowing, all-seeing, omnipotent “global warming” can now change your personality. No kidding. So claim researchers at the Columbia Business School (why are researchers at a “business” school studying global warming?). “As climate change continues across the world, we may also observe concomitant changes in human personality,” reads the study, published in the journal Nature on Tuesday. Hey, it’s already working on me – every time I read an article about some fake study making some increasingly bizarre claim about the effects of “global warming”, it pisses me off that much...
