    Regarding the rampant destruction of public monuments that has plagued America in recent weeks, a scribe asked Nancy Pelosi: “Shouldn’t that be done by a commission or a city council, not a mob in the middle of the night?” Visibly shrugging her shoulders, Pelosi replied: “People will do what they do.” What a categorical failure of leadership. Pelosi easily could have used her high profile to remind these cultural criminals that statues, no matter how controversial, are not theirs to annihilate. Democrat officials and far-Left activists have laughed off violence since the George Floyd riots erupted in late May. “Young...

    Nancy Pelosi talked about why Democrat leaders want to overturn the Hyde Amendment, which has protected taxpayers for decades from having to directly pay for abortions with their tax dollars. Pelosi said it’s an “injustice” that Americans are not forced to pay for killing unborn children. Her comments came when a reported asked, “There is also a push [by Democrats] to take out the Hyde Amendment?” “Well let me just say this. For 40 years since I was like not even in Congress, I have been dismayed by the injustice of the Hyde Amendment.” Democrats are trying to force Americans...

    A 7-2 majority of the Seattle City Council has pledged to vote for a 50% cut in funding for the police. Council member Kshama Sawant explained that "it turns out that most of what is called 'crime' is just a difference of opinion between the affected parties. These kinds of disagreements are spawned by the rotten capitalistic system foisted on us by white privilege. Since we are going to replace this system with socialism it makes no sense to invest money to fund police intervention into these types of disputes." The Councilwoman cited the recent Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone as...

    House Democrats reacted furiously to President Trump’s Friday move to commute the prison sentence of political operative Roger Stone -- demanding an investigation and even legislation to stop similar commutations happening again. “President Trump’s decision to commute the sentence of top campaign advisor Roger Stone, who could directly implicate him in criminal misconduct, is an act of staggering corruption,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said in a statement on Saturday. She went on to promise that Congress would “take action” to prevent future such commutations: “Legislation is needed to ensure that no President can pardon or commute the sentence of...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said there should be a law to curb President Trump's pardon power. During an interview with CNN host Anderson Cooper, Pelosi called Trump's commutation of former aide Roger Stone "appalling." The California Democrat also said she recommends passing a law that would prevent the president from exercising his constitutional power if the person being pardoned is politically connected to him. "For the president to be able to issue a pardon on the basis of a crime that the person committed assisting the president is ridiculous, and there ought to be a law," Pelosi began. "And I’m...

    During an interview that took place before it was formally announced that President Trump is commuting Roger Stone’s prison sentence broadcast on Friday’s edition of CNN’s “AC360,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) stated that giving Stone clemency is “a terrible idea” and “appalling.” Pelosi also stated that Congress should pass legislation so that presidents are legally restricted from pardoning anyone who commits a crime “that is caused by protecting the president, which this was.”

    Video at link. (CNSNews.com) - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) said in her press briefing on Thursday that “a trillion dollars” is “an interesting starting point” to talk about another spending bill, but indicated that she wants more than that. “What doesn't measure up is: ‘Oh, it can only be a trillion dollars,’” Pelosi said. “No, we need a trillion dollars for state and local,” she said. “We need another trillion dollars, another trillion dollars for Unemployment Insurance and direct payments. Something like that, but probably not as much for the testing, tracing, treatment, etcetera. “So, a trillion dollars is:...

    Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) on Thursday expressed indifference about mobs tearing down statues of historical figures across the country. "People will do what they do," Pelosi said when asked about Baltimore's statue of Christopher Columbus being destroyed by a mob. "I don't even have my grandmother's earrings." She added that heroic figures such as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Abraham Lincoln would "want us to be talking about the future." Baltimore police did nothing to stop vandals from dragging the statue down from its perch in Little Italy and throwing it piecemeal into the harbor on...

    A prominent Delaware law firm founded by presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden received a Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan for between $150,000 and $350,000, according to records released Monday by the Treasury Department and the Small Business Administration. The Trump campaign told Fox News that the records conflict with recent messaging from the Biden campaign that the PPP program is both ineffective and a vehicle to reward Trump "cronies." “Instead of attacking President Trump as an involuntary reflex, maybe Joe Biden should just say ‘thank you’ once in a while," Trump campaign director of communications Tim Murtaugh told Fox...

    Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) on Wednesday blamed Russia’s annexation of Crimea on Republicans, though the invasion took place on President Barack Obama's watch. Pelosi slammed President Donald Trump and Republicans for their alleged inability to face Russian aggression—and tied them to President Barack Obama’s appeasement of Moscow. "You just described, not only for the president, but the Republicans in Congress, dereliction of duty," Pelosi told MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace. "Undermining our own elections, undermining our commitment to NATO, giving away the store, the base, in Syria. The list goes on and on. Ignoring the annexation of Crimea,...

    **SNIP** Even Biden’s declining mental acuity wouldn’t concern me all that much. I’d be worried for one reason: Wile E. Coyote. Hear me out. The famous Looney Tunes coyote devoted all of his time to one mission. He was determined to catch and eat the Road Runner. Wile E. was cunning and persistent and yet he managed to fail miserably time and again. He constantly overcomplicated his mission. The harder he tried, the more ridiculous he looked. He was obsessed with hurting the Road Runner, but in the end he was always the one falling off a cliff. Does this...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi reportedly said Thursday she’s “trying to save the world from coronavirus” after a Republican lawmaker accused her of being too busy to comment on the rioters tearing down statues in her district. She made the comments after House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said Wednesday his California colleague should condemn protesters who knocked down the Golden Gate Park statue of St. Junipero Serra in her home district. “Given that today is the Feast Day of Saint Junipero Serra, her condemnation of mob violence would be especially timely,” McCarthy, R-Calif., said in a statement. Pelosi was dismissive of...

    Republicans are challenging House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to stop the distribution of Chinese propaganda on Capitol Hill. Rep. Jim Banks (R., Ind.), a member of the GOP-led China task force, has petitioned the Department of Justice and congressional employees to stop China Daily, a Chinese Communist Party-controlled propaganda outlet, from delivering its papers to the Capitol every morning. Now Banks and four other House Republicans are taking the issue to the very top of House leadership, asking for Pelosi to intervene. "I assume you are just as outraged as I am by the presence of such disgusting lies in our...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said Sunday that President Donald Trump "wants to ignore any allegation against Russia" as he and his administration deny ever being briefed about intelligence that Russians have offered to pay bounties to Taliban fighters who kill Americans. Speaking with ABC's "This Week," Pelosi said, "This is as bad as it gets." "And yet the president will not confront the Russians on this score, denies being briefed," Pelosi said. "Whether he is or not, his administration knows and our allies — some of our allies who work with us in Afghanistan had been briefed and accept...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Sunday that the country is “long overdue” for a national mask-wearing mandate to combat the novel coronavirus. Asked whether it was time to “mandate the wearing of masks across the country,” she said, “I definitely — long overdue for that.” “My understanding is that the Centers for Disease Control has recommended the use of masks but not required it because they don’t want to offend the president,” said Ms. Pelosi on ABC’s “This Week.” Ms. Pelosi also said that President Trump should wear a mask in public, declaring, “Real men wear masks.” “The president should...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) laid the blame for George Floyd's murder squarely on President Trump. She rejected the contention that since Minneapolis and Minnesota have been governed by Democrats for many decades they might be the ones responsible, calling this "state's rights nonsense." "Limited government is not an idea supported by the Democratic Party," Pelosi said. "In our view, it is the right and obligation for the president to step in and overrule any action or policy undertaken by any subordinate level of government. President Trump's failure to anticipate the cruel and unjust actions of Minneapolis police officer Derek...

I said the anti-Fa and BLM are running around tearing down statues of confederates, and that is perfectly fine ( again playing the part), but now they are goign after statues of Abe Lincoln and other abolitionists...
