  • Nancy Pelosi Uses Holy Thursday Foot Washing Service to Raise Immigration Issue

    National Catholic Register ^ | 04/18/2014 | BY JOAN FRAWLEY DESMOND
    Pope Francis inspired Catholics across the world last year when he visited a juvenile detention center in Rome to celebrate Holy Thursday, and tenderly washed the feel of a young  Muslim woman. This year, he washed the feet disabled people in a ceremony that recalls Jesus' humble service and challenging message to the apostles--the "Servant of the servants" takes the path of radical sel-sacrifice that leads to the Cross. Last night, a Rome's  Don Gnocchi facility, which provides services for the elderly and disabled, Pope Francis celebrated the Mass of the Lord's Supper, and his homily  recalled Jesus'  striking actions: He did it this way out of love....

    To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship."

    The top Democrat who is leading the effort to help the party elect more members to Congress said he cares more about amnesty than the midterm elections. Appearing on CNN's State of the Union with Candy Crowley on Sunday, Rep. Steve Israel (D-NY), the head of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, said the midterm elections are taking a backseat to the amnesty legislation Democrats and establishment Republicans desperately want. "We'd rather pass an immigration bill than worry about the election. We have got 190 Democrats ready to vote on a comprehensive immigration bill today," Israel said while also accusing Republicans...

    Pelosi: Race playing role in GOP's reluctance to move immigration bill Greg Nash By Mike Lillis - 04/10/14 01:00 PM EDT Issues of race have made GOP leaders reluctant to back immigration reform, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) charged Thursday. The Democratic leader suggested that the Republicans would have moved a reform bill long ago if whites were the only beneficiaries. "I think race has something to do with the fact that they're not bringing up an immigration bill," Pelosi told reporters in the Capitol. "I've heard them say to the Irish, 'If it were just you, this would be easy.'...

    One of the most fascinating things about human nature is that when a person usually boasts of something, they tend to be the exact opposite. Those who profess to be charitable usually turn out to be stingy, and those who claim humility as their greatest virtue tend to rub their achievements in your face. This trait is also true with progressive liberals. They claim to be the most tolerant group of people on the planet, but their actions say the exact opposite. There have been a number of events recently that show the so-called liberal tolerance on display. Our first...

    Democrats are hyperventilating over a U. S. Supreme Court ruling on April 2, McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi claims the ruling will turn politics into a "money war." Sorry, that happened a long time ago. For the past two decades, unions have poured massive amounts into super PACs and other legal vehicles for advertising and get-out-the-vote efforts, which favor Democrats. What's got Pelosi and other Democrats worried is competition. Last week's high court ruling could mean more money for Republican candidates, even tea party activists. The Supreme Court split 5-4 on the hot-button issue of...

    Democratic lawmakers and campaign finance reform advocates quickly bashed Wednesday’s Supreme Court decision to strike down total limits on individual campaign contributions, warning of future corruption in elections. Meanwhile, Republicans largely cheered the ruling from the narrowly divided court, which found it unconstitutional to impose caps on the aggregate amounts that one person can donate to campaigns, parties and political action committees. Calling himself “all for freedom,” Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Wednesday commended the ruling, saying “donors ought to have the freedom to give what they want to give.” And Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), who had filed...

Passing comprehensive immigration reform is more important than Democrats' success at the polls in November, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday. A number of Republicans and other conservative voices have accused Pelosi and the Democrats of using the immigration reform issue as a political crutch, suggesting the Democrats would rather keep the issue alive for campaign purposes than actually pass a bill. But Pelosi on Thursday rejected that notion outright, and she didn't mince words. "I believe,...

Zoe Lofgren, a San Jose Democrat who is the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee’s immigration panel, spoke passionately on the floor about a potentially “truly historic” day, but so far it remains just that. President Obama likewise issued a statement encouraging the effort.

    The Republican Party is currently trying to sort out an internal battle between its dwindling stock of moderates who are occasionally willing to work with Democrats, and its hard-right base, which views compromise with Democrats in general, and President Obama in particular, as heresy. But in a speech Monday, Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD), the second-ranking Democrat in the House showed that there are significant fissures in the Democratic Party as well. Hoyer, though nominally Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s second-in-command, is starkly different from Pelosi and many others on the party’s left wing when it comes to economic and fiscal issues....

    The retirement of two of Nancy Pelosi's closest confidants is raising questions about whether the House Democratic leader's reign could be nearing an end. The pending departures of Reps. George Miller and Henry Waxman mean Pelosi will have to do without her most trusted lieutenants if she decides to run again as Democratic leader.

One former Democratic leadership aide described the loss as “a substantial changing of the guard” – a transition...

    With Rep. Henry Waxman's retirement announcement, many of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's top lieutenants are abandoning ship. Waxman joins his California colleague, Rep.

And after last year's 2012 elections, Pelosi's leading in-house strategist Jen Crider left her office, later announcing she was working for Microsoft. Their decisions are as strong a signal as any that veteran House Democrats hold little hope of taking the House in 2014, and they probably are pessimistic about their long-term prospects for a congressional majority.

From the “train wreck” that is Obamacare, to the brilliant idea of solving the debt limit issue with a trillion-dollar platinum coin, 2013 has been, shall we say, less than stellar for Democrats. “Before we ring in 2014, it’s important to look back at some of their biggest failures in the past year,” the post’s author Matt Gorman told Red Alert Politics. “2013 may be rapidly coming to an end, but the Democrats’ troubles are just beginning.” While the complete list...

    Catholics across the United States have for years wondered if and when pro-abortion “Catholics” like Nancy Pelosi or John Kerry would be told not to present themselves for Communion because they are out of step with Catholic Church teachings on the sanctity of human life. Cardinal Raymond Burke, the former archbishop of St. Louis and now the chief justice at the Vatican’s highest court saying prohibiting Pelosi and Kerry from receiving Communion”makes perfect sense,” according to a new interview Burke gave to EWTN. As CNS News reports on the interview: In an interview with EWTN’s Raymond Arroyo on Dec. 13,...

    WASHINGTON — House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that Democrats would not run only on Obamacare in 2014, but the election would be primarily about the budget and jobs. “Yes they could have done a better job of describing it,” Pelosi said of the White House messaging on the law. “No, they didn’t hurt us for 2014.”

    "This is history and the future and progress," she stated emphatically, "It stands right there as Social Security, Medicare, affordable health care, as a right, not a privilege for the few, but a right for the many." She was speaking Tuesday at an event sponsored by BuzzFeed. Pelosi acknowledged she was "really disappointed" that the technology behind the website failed, but said she was excited to see the program fully implemented. "You can imagine coming from Northern California what I think of that," she said, referring to Silicon Valley. "But none the less, it will work and the policy is...

    If President Obama’s very clearly last-minute, politically desperate, and virtually unworkable faux-”fix” announced last Thursday wasn’t enough to get House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to strike a less defiant tone on her infamously idiotic “we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what’s in it” remark back in 2010, then nothing ever will be, my friends — but kudos to David Gregory for at least asking, I suppose. Isn’t that whole “we have to pass it” mentality, he asks, and the subsequent big rush job to do so on which zero Republicans voted yes, kind of...

    House Speaker John Boehner’s declaration Wednesday morning that the House would not negotiate with the Senate on its comprehensive immigration reform bill drew some tough reaction from those who want to see the issue move forward. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., led with a tweet directed at Boehner’s comments to young immigrants that it’s “not easy, not going to be an easy path forward.” Pelosi begged to differ: “Actually it is easy, @Speaker Boehner,” she said. .... Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey, one of the eight senators who crafted that chambers’ sweeping immigration bill passed in June,...

    The uneasy alliance between President Obama and health insurers is being put to the test by the troubled rollout of ObamaCare. With the botched enrollment website dragging Obama’s approval rating to record lows and threatening to undermine his biggest legislative achievement, some Democrats say the president should deflect blame onto the industry. The healthcare companies in many ways represent an ideal political target, as they are unpopular and intimately involved in the rollout — and Democrats haven’t hesitated to go after them in the past. Democrats highlighted what they said were the heartless business practices of insurers during the debate...

    The Obama administration has found a way to give unions relief from an Obamacare tax nearly three weeks after Republicans rejected a Democratic push to include the labor carve-out in the latest budget deal.The Department of Health and Human Services quietly released a final rule last week that includes an intention to exempt some union insurance plans from a substantial new tax known as the reinsurance fee.As part of Obamacare, the tax was supposed to be levied against all insurance plans to share the risk for insurers taking on the sickest patients next year.But unions, which were among the strongest...
