    Why is it Democrats have such a natural affinity for situational ethics? Flashback: That Time Schumer Said It Was Insane To Shut Down The Government Over Immigration Reform. But that was then: Nancy Pelosi called the shutdown gambit “an unthinkable tactic,” and labeled those pushing for it “legislative arsonists.” Chuck Schumer vowed not to use it: “No matter how strongly one feels about an issue, you shouldn’t hold millions of people hostage . . . That’s wrong and we can’t give into that,” he told the New York Observer. “We could say, ‘we’re shutting down the government, we’re not going...
  • Pelosi slams company bonuses as 'crumbs' despite once praising $40 tax cut

    Pelosi: Tax Cut Bonuses for Employees Amount to 'Crumbs' House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Thursday slammed President Trump’s tax reform that led to companies giving as large as $2,000 bonuses as “crumbs,” despite praising Obama-era $40 tax cut to workers as a “victory for America” in 2011. Following the passage of sweeping tax cuts, including lowering the corporate tax from 35 percent to 21 percent, multiple companies have given out bonuses and pay rises for its workers amid anticipating tax savings. Former CBO director Doug Holtz-Eakin discusses why President Trump's tax reform overhaul is likely to benefit Republicans in...
  • Donald Trump’s Support Among Blacks Has Doubled Since 2016, Amid Racism Claims

    Two new polls show President Donald Trump’s rising support among black voters, highlighting his political gains from pushing employers to hire Americans instead of lower-wage migrants. The growing support from blacks — despite furious Democratic claims of racism — could become a shocking political validation in November when Trump will face millions of upper-income Democratic voters who are angry at his “Buy American, Hire American” policies. Among black men, Trump’s “2017 average approval rating significantly exceeds his 2016 vote share,” admitted a January 11 article in the Atlantic by author Ronald Brownstein. “23 percent of black men approved of Trump’s...

    Trump's day of reckoning ... The one thing that could dramatically diminish President Trump’s chances of avoiding impeachment and chalking up legislative wins is Democrats winning the House. And, thanks to series of recent developments, Trump knows this no longer just seems plausible, but probable. Hill sources tell us that a House Democratic takeover is now likely. One strategist close to Republican leaders believes that a loss of the House is "baked in," and said top Republicans don't see a way to avoid it. It would take a flip of 24 seats for Dems to take over. The average loss...

  • Report: Nancy Pelosi Now a Lock for Speaker of the House in 2019

    Breitbart ^ | January 14, 2018 | Joel B. Pollak’s Mike Allen reports that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is now considered a lock for Speaker of the House in 2019, as her party is expected to sweep the 2018 midterm elections. If so, it would be one of the most remarkable comebacks in political history, after Pelosi led her party to an historic defeat in 2010 after serving as the first female Speaker for four years, then clung to power over a shrinking minority party for eight. Allen notes: “It would take a flip of 24 seats for Dems to take over. The average loss for the...

    “The five white guys, I call them. Are they going to open a hamburger stand next or what?” Pelosi said at a press conference on Thursday. “That could’ve been done four months ago.” She criticized the “very idea that this week they’re saying, ‘Oh why don’t we get four white guys and General Kelly to come and do this.'” Hoyer, the number two Democrat in the House behind Pelosi, took issue with the “white guys” comment, calling it “offensive.”

    Nancy Pelosi Comes Unglued After Stephen Miller Crushes Jake Tapper – Calls Miller a “White Supremacist” Who “Must Be Removed” Brilliant White House advisor Stephen Miller absolutely annihilated CNN’s Jake Tapper Sunday morning in a debate about Michael Wolff’s book ‘Fire and Fury’. It got so bad Tapper cut off the segment and went to commercials. Since liberals can’t debate facts, they resort to labeling Trump and his allies as white supremacists and Nazis. On Sunday, Nancy Pelosi immediately attacked Stephen Miller, calling him a “white supremacist” who deserves to be fired. Nancy Pelosi’s political team tweeted, “The bigoted world...
  • So why hasn't anyone ever seen Trump's supposed dementia?

    Like anyone else, politicians do get old, and when they do, their age frequently becomes obvious in public. One example is House minority leader Nancy Pelosi, who has repeatedly slurred her speech and spoken gibberish, both of which point to declining mental capabilities. Politicians also get life-threatening illnesses, such as cancer. Whether or not you like John McCain, his brain cancer was the likely culprit for his inability to speak clearly during his questioning of James Comey last month, something most people can look upon with compassion. Then there are politicians who try to hide that there are any health...

    After saber-rattling for weeks that they would shut down the federal government unless the 790,000 “dreamers” under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACAs) program were granted amnesty, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi quietly withdrew their threat. Schumer and Pelosi realized what the rest of voting America knows: that outside the Beltway, DACA isn’t a priority. The pair also knew that President Donald Trump would use his favorite communication tool, Twitter, to send out the message that Democrats were willing to close the government unless this specific group of illegal immigrants received amnesty and...
  • Turmoil: CA Democrats' Sexual Harassment Problem Cost Them

    The sexual harassment reckoning has exposed many men in positions of power for their bad behavior. Matt Lauer, Charlie Rose, Mark Halperin and others have either been fired or suspended for sexual misconduct. In the political realm, Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) is resigning in early January after multiple women accused him of sexual harassment. Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) made his way to the exit after his sexual harassment allegations made it into the limelight; he paid $27,000 to settle a claim in 2015. And yes, that’s our money he used for that expenditure. This reached a boiling point during the...

    The Democratic Party, on Wednesday, voted overwhelmingly for Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) to replace resigned Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) on the House Judiciary Committee. Nadler, a constitutional law expert, won the spot over Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), an architect of immigration legislation, by secret ballot with 118 to 72 votes. The Washington Post noted on Thursday that the decision to fill their top spot on the committee demonstrates the Democratic Party’s willingness “[t]o ready themselves for a battle with Trump that could end with impeachment proceedings.” Should the Democrats regain control of the House during next year’s mid-term elections, they...

    <p>Yesterday’s Campaign Update speculated that, since no details of Andrew McCabe’s Tuesday testimony before the House Intelligence Committee had leaked to CNN, that meant that either CA Democrat Adam “Bugeyes” Schiff had missed the hearing or McCabe’s testimony was not helpful at all of the Democrats. Based on last night’s revelations on Fox News, it seems the latter was the case, as McCabe apparently gave testimony that was incomplete, misleading, and that conflicted previous testimony offered by himself and other witnesses.</p>

    A handful of folks are really steamed that Republican lawmakers are planning to lower taxes, and they gathered in tiny conference room on Capitol Hill where House Minority Speaker Nancy Pelosi was slated to speak Monday. But the demonstration was so weak, MSNBC reports, Pelosi didn’t even bother to show up. “These protests have never been like what we saw with the healthcare law,” an MSNBC reporter said as a camera man panned the crowd of a couple dozen mulled about in self-scheduling conference room 2456. “This particular protest was supposed to start at three, it was supposed to feature...

Harris announced felony pimping charges last year against the two owners of — a classified-ad website that is a hub for sex trafficking and prostitution, one of the men cut a $10,000 check to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s super PAC. Mrs. Pelosi’s political action committee, House Majority PAC, has resisted giving the money back, and an aide to Mrs. Pelosi said the California Democrat knows nothing about the contribution. The uproar over sexual harassment that began with the Harvey Weinstein scandal has intensified the scrutiny of political contributions linked to Backpage, which...

    A second woman has now accused Democratic Nevada Rep. Ruben Kihuen of sexual misconduct. Kihuen repeatedly touched the women’s legs or buttocks without her consent, the woman told the Nevada Independent. The anonymous woman also showed the paper hundreds of suggestive text messages from Kihuen that included comments such as, “I’m sure you look even better naked.” In one message, he asked her “What color are your panties?” She declined to tell him, which Kihuen said made him “sad,” claiming his “day can’t go on without knowing.”

    A meeting last week of the Clark County Democratic Party descended into chaos amid charges that party chair Donna West had engaged in “racist” behavior. This summer, Democrats elected Erika Washington, an African-American woman, to the CCDP’s No. 2 spot. One of her jobs was to fill the party’s Political Organizing Committee, which works on voter outreach and mobilization. Washington selected three African-American women to serve. That wasn’t acceptable to West, a white woman, because she felt it would put too many black women on the 13-member committee. “Also per the bylaws, the Political Action shall reflect the diversity of...

    The Republican Party is working diligently to support Hispanics who are eager to become civically engaged leaders in their communities. Last month, I led a Republican Leadership Initiative event in Las Vegas to teach local activists how to mobilize their communities around issues that affect them. The training — tailored to a Spanish-speaking audience — was an opportunity to share our conservative message as we work to earn the widespread support of people from all backgrounds, nationwide. To win elections in 2018 and beyond, we must ensure that Americans know that our values of limited government and economic freedom are...

    Rep. Ruben Kihuen said Saturday he would not seek re-election following accusations of sexually inappropriate behavior with women. “I want to state clearly again that I deny the allegations in question,” Kihuen, D-Nev., said in a statement to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “I am committed to fully cooperating with the House Ethics Committee and look forward to clearing my name.” Democratic Party leaders have called for Kihuen to step down over the charges. On Saturday, Kihuen said he would serve out his two-year term. But he added that the allegations would a distract from a thorough discussion of issues in...
