    After California’s then-Attorney General Kamala D. Harris announced felony pimping charges last year against the two owners of Backpage.com — 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...

    Nancy Pelosi is ignorant about the state of gun laws. It is not surprising. Many people base their decisions about guns and laws on ignorance. It is possible that she is lying.I suspect ignorance. Most Progressive decisions about guns are made from false assumptions about reality.Once those assumptions have been internalized, there is no need for further thought or learning about guns and gun laws.Those decisions have already been made. The assumptions are obvious in the following statement from Nancy Pelosi.From njherald.com: “Far from making Americans safer, this deadly, extreme Republican bill would make it legal for more dangerous...

    39 second video of Pelosi at link (CNSNews.com) - House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, during whose four-year speakership the debt increased by more than $5 trillion, said at her press briefing today that the Republican-controlled Congress is “robbing from the future by increasing the debt.” Pelosi made the remark as part of her criticism of the Republican tax-reform plan. “This is who they are,” Pelosi said. “This is what they came here to do: tax cuts for the rich at the expense of the middle class, at the expense of the health and well-being of the American people. Robbing from...

    The drama between Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and President Donald Trump has reached absurd heights. First, there was that rather tweet from the president, which was not out of the ordinary. He accused Gillibrand of doing “anything” for campaign contributions. Gillibrand said this was a sexist smear, despite the president using that line on pretty much everyone. This all is part of the ongoing sexual harassment reckoning on the Hill and elsewhere. Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) is gone, and Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) has signaled his intention to leave…whenever that may be. Gillibrand has called on Trump to resign, as...

    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.”

The House minority leader sent the tweet last week after House Republicans passed the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, sending it to the Senate by a 231-198 vote. “Inviting violent criminals to carry concealed weapons doesn’t save lives,” Pelosi tweeted. “Inviting domestic abusers to carry concealed weapons doesn’t save lives.

"At first, there was a thread of being an impostor that may have been in his mind,” Pelosi (D-Calif.) told The New York Times. "He's overcome that now." Video “The bigger problem, the thing people need to understand, is that he was utterly unprepared for this," she said.

    Rosy economic statistics showing a robust 3.3% annual growth in gross domestic product and an all time low in the unemployment rate for Hispanics prompted former President Barack Obama to assert that "the real credit for this good news belongs to me." "Trump wants everyone to believe that his relaxation of regulations and championing of tax cuts deserve the credit," Obama said. "What he and everyone else is overlooking is that the stringent regulations and high taxes that prevailed for my eight year term built up the 'coiled spring' pressure that, when released by Trump's moves, allowed the economy to...
  • Shutting Down The Government Over DACA Is A Risky Bet For Democrats

    Democrats would be making a risky political bet if they force a shutdown over DACA. A new Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health poll shows that just 17 percent of Americans believe that finding a replacement for DACA is an extremely important priority for Congress and President Trump to work on the rest of this year. That ranked 12th among the 15 domestic issues tested by Harvard. Even among Democrats, only 20 percent said renewing DACA was an extremely important priority. In other words: Support and saliency are not the same thing. Most people want DACA replaced. But for...

    Speaking to reporters in the Capitol, Pelosi said Democrats will insist on safeguards for those in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program before the holiday recess, suggesting Republicans will be on their own to prevent a government shutdown if that language is excluded. "We will not leave here without a DACA fix," Pelosi said.

    President Trump on Wednesday ripped into Democratic congressional leaders one day before a critical White House meeting, claiming the party is looking to shut down the government with its demands on immigration. “It could happen,” Trump told reporters at the White House when asked about the chances of a shutdown. “The Democrats are really looking at something that is very dangerous to our country. They are looking at shutting down.” Trump took aim at threats from some Democrats to vote against a year-end spending deal unless Congress shields from deportation young immigrants in the U.S. illegally. “They want to have...

    Democratic Party leaders are calling for Rep. Ruben Kihuen (D., Nev.) to resign over sexual harassment allegations, but he is refusing to do so—and even making counter accusations. Kihuen told ABC News that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.), as well as Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Rep. Ben Ray Lujan (N.M.), knew about the allegations last year and did nothing. "I do find it interesting that the DCCC, Leader Pelosi and Chairman Ben Ray Lujan—they knew about these allegations last year," Kihuen said. "They looked into them. They didn't find anything, and they continued investing millions of dollars...

    I told you Nancy Pelosi belongs in a mental institution and she has definitely proved it now. She told a recent gathering of the Women’s Political Committtee that spirits of Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth cady Stanton and Alice Paul spoke to her at the White House. Seriously, I’m not kidding. She said she heard them say, “At last we have a seat at the table.” Pelosi tells the women, “He’s (Bush) saying something to the effect of we’re so glad to welcome you here, congratulations and I know you’ll probably have some different things to say about what is going...

They accepted Trump's second invitation to meet after declining the first on Nov. 28. The backdrop: Schumer and Pelosi skipped the first meeting after Trump tweeted that he didn't "see a deal" with them and called them "weak on crime" and "weak on illegal immigration." Monday, they said, "We hope the President will go into this meeting with an open mind, rather than deciding that an agreement can't be reached beforehand." Full statement 159 words The...

    SACRAMENTO, CALIF. - U.S. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's daughter Christine has taken the spotlight in the sexual harassment scandal enveloping California's Legislature with her claim there are rapists in the state Capitol and lawmakers are protecting them. The younger Pelosi, chair of the California Democratic Party's women's caucus, produced gasps Tuesday when she made the statement at a legislative committee hearing on state sexual harassment policies. While many testified, sometimes angrily, about a dysfunctional system they say protects the powerful and encourages silence from victims, Christine Pelosi's comments stood apart for their bare-knuckle boldness. They struck a nerve, with...

Unbeknownst to many on the left, racism within the very hallways of the entertainment industry has been dismissed and it's very apparent to many blacks that this whole Harvey Weinstein snowball has only become the movement it has become because the victims are 99 44⁄100% liberal white women. John Conyers' name was the ONLY House member named regarding the taxpayer-funded hush fund and is publicly being told to resign. The white guy Al Franken is hiding behind his...
