    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) said in a statement released Friday that she welcomed the firing of White House strategist Steve Bannon and said that the Trump Administration must “abandon the bigoted ideology that clearly governs its decisions.” Here is the complete text of Pelosi’s statement: “Steve Bannon’s firing is welcome news, but it doesn’t disguise where President Trump himself stands on white supremacists and the bigoted beliefs they advance. “President Trump’s growing record of repulsive statements is matched by his repulsive policies. Personnel changes are worthless so long as President Trump continues to advance policies that disgrace our...

    The Washington Free Beacon ^ | August 21, 2017 | Charles Fain Lehman
    According to DNC Vice Chairman Rep. Keith Ellison (D., Minn.), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) secretly supports Medicare for all. The video of Ellison, first reported by the Daily Caller, shows him speaking before a local Democratic party meeting in Minnesota last Wednesday. "I’m signed onto H.R. 676 which is a single-payer health care act," Ellison said. "They call it Medicare for all. Yeah, universal health care. Real single-payer health care. I’m on that." Ellison stopped to explicitly ask if he was being recorded before explaining that Pelosi backed this bill as well. "You may have heard that...

    FULL TITLE: If Confederate Statues Are 'Reprehensible', Why Didn't Nancy Pelosi Remove Them When She Had the Power as Speaker? Last week House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi demanded Speaker Paul Ryan remove all confederate statues from the U.S. Capitol. In a statement, Pelosi said the statues have "always been reprehensible" and insisted they be taken down, despite the Capitol acting as a museum for all kinds of American history. “The halls of Congress are the very heart of our democracy. The statues in the Capitol should embody our highest ideals as Americans, expressing who we are and who we aspire...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s father, the late former Baltimore Mayor Thomas D’Alesandro Jr., once lauded Confederate generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson at a monument dedication ceremony in his city over half a century ago. The statues were torn down by Baltimore authorities last Tuesday after the violent events surrounding the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue in Charlottesville, Va. last week. According to The Baltimore Sun, the statue, first erected in 1948, included a dedication ceremony of prominent city politicians like Pelosi’s father who led the municipality at the time. At the dedication, D’Alesandro said of...

    A ribbon of darkness is about to cast its shadow: The path of totality. We’re not talking about talking about Monday’s solar eclipse. The path of totality we’re discussing about is the specter of congressional resolutions to censure or even impeach President Trump. Congress has a lot to deal with: North Korea, government funding, raising the debt limit, health care, tax reform, supposedly infrastructure. But the U.S. Capitol is soon to find itself directly in the path of totality when it comes to the president’s remarks about white supremacists and Charlottesville. The issue will likely monopolize Capitol Hill as the...

    Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is calling for the National Park Service to revoke the permit for a Patriot Prayer event because she says it’s a “white supremacist rally” – even though the organizer and all but one speaker are not white. “The National Park Service’s decision to permit a white supremacist rally at Crissy Field raises grave and ongoing concerns about public safety,” House Minority Leader Pelosi declared in a statement calling for cancellation of the conservative event scheduled for Aug. 26 in San Francisco, California. In a further effort to villainize the event, Pelosi implied that the Trump Administration...

    In February of 2003, then-aspiring Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean got applause at a Democratic National Committee meeting when he argued that “white folks in the South who drive pickup trucks with Confederate flag decals on the back ought to be voting with us.” More than a decade later, in the wake of the violent white supremacist rally surrounding a statue of Robert E. Lee in Charlottesville, Virginia, last wekend and President Trump’s full-throated defense of Confederate monuments, the politics have changed. What used to be a series of low-key, local fights has turned into a party-defining wedge issue with...

    BRIDGEWATER, N.J. (AP) - House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said the departure of White House adviser Steve Bannon is "welcome news," but she is calling on President Donald Trump to fire additional staff. Pelosi said in a statement that Bannon's departure "doesn't disguise where President Trump himself stands on white supremacists and the bigoted beliefs they advance." Trump has said "both sides" are to blame for the clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia, between white supremacists and counter-protesters last weekend. One woman protesting the far-right extremist groups died when a car drove into a crowd.....

    When Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was Speaker of the House for four years (2007-2010), at least 709,885 black babies were killed by abortion, which is 35.4% of all the abortions during those years, according to the Abortion Surveillance reports of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). […] There were a total 1,918,419 abortions during those four years. Blacks make up 13.3% of the U.S. population, according to the Census Bureau.

The award is Planned Parenthood’s “highest honor” and is named...

    Pelosi wants Confederate statues out of Capitol By Mike Lillis - 08/17/17 12:25 PM EDT House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday joined the growing chorus of Democrats calling for the removal of Confederate statues from the Capitol. Calling the monuments a “reprehensible” symbol of a racist era, Pelosi urged Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and other GOP leaders to support an effort to purge the statues from the building. “There is no room for celebrating the violent bigotry of the men of the Confederacy in the hallowed halls of the United States Capitol or in places of honor across...

    (SF GATE) — San Francisco’s top political leaders piled on Tuesday in opposition to a right-wing group’s planned rally next week at Crissy Field, with Mayor Ed Lee expressing outrage that the National Park Service granted a permit for the event and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi questioning whether it had been approved “under guidance from the White House.” An organizer of the Aug. 26 rally rejected suggestions that it would be a gathering of white supremacists. And the local managers of the Presidio, a national park site, said the group’s politics made no difference because it had a constitutional...

    Pelosi wants permit for white nationalist rally at Crissy Field to be reconsidered SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi is asking the National Park Service to reconsidered allowing an alt-right white supremacist rally to happened at San Francisco’s Crissy Field. The National Park Service has already issued the permit for the event that’s scheduled on Aug. 26. “Patriot Prayer” is a two-day event that honors freedom, spirituality, unity, peace, and patriotism, according to the group’s website. However, there are concerns that this event will provoke a situation similar to what happened in Charlottesville over the weekend. Pelosi...

    House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi called Tuesday for the National Park Service to reconsider its decision to grant a permit to a right-wing group planning a rally at San Francisco’s Crissy Field, and asked whether the gathering had been approved “under guidance from the White House.” Pelosi was reacting to plans by a group called Patriot Prayer to rally Aug. 26 at Crissy Field, which is part of Presidio National Park. The group’s permit was tentatively approved before violence broke out Saturday at a rally of white supremacists in Charlottesville, Va.

    Republicans in Congress look pretty pathetic to many Americans, but even more pathetic is the Democratic Party, which is nothing these days but an anti-Trump circus. This is a direct consequence of victimology run wild, geographic myopia, and the utter sterility of modern leftism. Consider the "leaders" of the Democratic Party in the last election cycle. Hillary Clinton, who has done nothing of consequence her entire life, won the nomination based on the fact that she was an insider and an old, angry woman. Moreover, Hillary has clearly committed a number of crimes related to her private email server and...

    The Democrat Party in the Trump-era is in shambles. The Party is moving full speed ahead towards the 2018 midterms without a message, a destructive fixation on Russia and a looming fundrasing crisis. Today’s “doom and gloom” message isn’t working with voters. NTK Network reports: The reality is it’s the Democrats who are struggling to stay relevant. Politico published a story Thursday morning that noted Democrats have raised barely half of what Republicans have brought in this year: Over the first six months of 2017, the Republican National Committee pulled in $75 million—nearly twice as much money as the Democratic...

    Exclusive, gated street on which Pelosi and Feinstein once lived. The wealthy residents of San Francisco's exclusive, gated Presidio Terrace haven't paid a $14/year tax bill for three decades. This led the city to auction off the tony street that boasts among its former residents House minority leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA). The auction was an attempt to recoup its delinquent tax losses valued at less than a thousands dollars (including penalties, interest, etc.).Officials hit the jackpot when a young couple purchased the street at auction two years ago for $90,100. The new owners are reportedly...

    Nancy Pelosi might actually be in trouble. In a survey of 20 Democratic House candidates, only one – a former Senate staffer from Orange County, California – would state support for the congresswoman staying on as leader of the House Democratic Caucus. Of the rest, 18 declined to say if Pelosi should keep her job, while one, a political newcomer from a culturally conservative Ohio district, said he would vote for someone other than Pelosi. Their refusal is a remarkable development for an already embattled minority leader. Democrats are eager to win a majority buoyed by voters’ disapproval of President...
