    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) hammered the Trump administration's new budget proposal on Thursday, framing the president's federal spending blueprint as an immoral demolition of government that's doomed in Congress. "I don't see how this budget can survive the light of day," Pelosi said during a press briefing in the Capitol. "This budget is really a slap in the face of the future." [Snip] "This is systemic deconstruction of the federal government." [Snip] "As low as my expectations have been, this budget really goes beyond," she said. "While it may be a statement of President Trump's values, I hope...

    Everyone who doesn't like Donald Trump seems obsessed with attacking his manner of speech and vocabulary, while simultaneously completely overlooking the verbal dyslexia of Nancy Pelosi (current Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, representing California's 12th congressional district). Watch this riotous video composite and see if what she says makes even half as much sense as anything President Trump writes during his worst unscripted, spontaneous rambling...which is always good anyway.

    At the beginning of the primary season, the Huffington Post infamously consigned coverage of Donald Trump's campaign to its entertainment section. So it was striking that on today's Morning Joe, it was HuffPo's Sam Stein who chided his fellow liberals for refusing to acknowledge the obvious: that President Trump gave a good speech last night [see Stein's tweet, below.] Stein's take was echoed across the panel. Mark Halperin called it Trump's best speech ever, an assessment shared by Chris Cillizza. Joe Scarborough, who has been very tough on Stephen Miller, gave him high marks for writing such a good speech....

    The face of desperation. Nancy Pelosi, as you might expect, didn’t have anything nice to say about President Trump’s address last night. She trotted out her usual assortment of well-worn anti-Trump barbs today on the Morning Joe show. As usual, she used a lot of words to say very little, and managed to put the spotlight on her own party’s fecklessness in the process. But - and this is very important - she wants you to know how “very proud” she is of the dignity displayed by Democrats who sat and listened to the President’s speech.

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi blamed former President George W. Bush and the Republicans on Friday for the more than $9 trillion that has been added to the national debt under President Obama's watch. Pelosi argued that under Obama, the annual budget deficit, which contributes to the national debt, has been reduced dramatically, and said that without Obama's work, the national debt would be even higher. She also mostly blamed Bush for not paying for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. "When President Obama stood on the steps on the Capitol eight years from next week, the [budget] deficit was...

    Using a visa loophole to fire well-paid U.S. information technology workers and replace them with low-paid immigrants from India is despicable enough when it’s done by profit-making companies such as Southern California Edison and Walt Disney Co. But the latest employer to try this stunt sets a new mark in what might be termed “job laundering.” It’s the University of California. Experts in the abuse of so-called H-1B visas say UC is the first public university to send the jobs of American IT staff offshore. That’s not a distinction UC should wear proudly.

    Margaret Thatcher once famously said that “the problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.” Is that what’s happened to the Democratic party? Morning Joe devoted a navel-gazing segment today to the question of where Dems go from here given their loss of the presidency, their failure to take back either house of congress, and their hemorrhaging of governorships and hundreds of state-legislature seats. There was consensus that Nancy Pelosi and her septuagenarian cohort in the Dem leadership were past their sell-by dates. But the bigger problem that was posed was the lack of a...

    House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Wednesday fended off a challenge to her long leadership reign, defeating Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) in a closed-door vote prompted largely by Donald Trump’s unlikely ascension to the White House. Pelosi got 134 votes to Ryan's 63 — winning 68 percent of the votes after declaring before the election that she had the support of two-thirds of the caucus. The victory sends a message that while there's a growing appetite for major changes in the party's leadership structure and messaging tactics, it's not strong enough to loosen Pelosi's grip on a liberal-heavy group...

But what they cannot do directly they are now working hard to do indirectly.

Better, she said, to focus on barring terror suspects from buying guns. That measure’s a no-brainer for Democrats, she reasoned, and easier to explain to the public.

The EPA had sought to block Jeff Holmstead, who led the EPA’s air pollution office under then-President George W. Bush from 2001 to 2005, from appearing as an expert witness in Murray Energy Corp.’s case. The agency argued that Holmstead’s time at the EPA is a significant conflict of interest and his testimony would amount to little more than unreliable legal conclusions. The EPA “effectively argues that, because Mr. Holmstead once worked at...

Adelson has long been close to Gingrich, who had a hand in convincing him to back Trump last month, and the Las...

    The Democratic Party relies too heavily on superdelegates to pick its presidential nominees, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Thursday — though she downplayed the current dispute between party leaders and Sen. Bernard Sanders. Mrs. Pelosi called the fight between Mr. Sanders and party leaders a “family disagreement” and insisted it won’t dent the eventual nominee in the general election. She also dismissed comparisons to the riot-fueled 1968 Democratic convention. “This is an incident. That was a colossal … clash of people,” she said.

    Democrats shouted "Shame! Shame!," but seven Republicans switched their votes and defeated a measure to protect gay rights. The final vote was 213-212 after the chaos on the House floor.

Maloney and other Democrats were incensed. "They literally snatched discrimination from the jaws of equality," Maloney said. He said he had approached Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., as McCarthy worked on GOP colleagues to vote against the measure. McCarthy told Maloney to...

    SANTA MONICA, California — Former Mexican president Vicente Fox suggested Wednesday that drug trafficking and violence at the border aren’t caused by Mexico, but by drug consumption in the United States. We don’t have a consumption problem. Then, the question, why the war? Why the killings? It’s because we are in between those that consume the drugs here in the north in United States and those who produce the drugs south, Columbia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia. “And here is Mexico in this war, why? We have accepted to collaborate with United States in trying to cut the drug trafficking, trying to...

    Why a conservative economist says Trump could make America ‘the North Korea of economics’ By Jim Tankersley May 6 In his run for the White House, Donald Trump has threatened to slap tariffs on imports from China, in almost-certain violation of international rules.

This week, he suggested that, in an economic crisis, the government might repay only some of the money it owes to certain holders of its debt. Those threats reflect...
