    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Tuesday on MSNBC "Morning Joe," House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) discussed the humanitarian crisis of tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors illegally flooding across the U.S.-Mexico border. The congressional leader dismissed the strain on our nations financial resources to care for all the children of the world in troubled areas, saying she believes the U.S. government should look at the children like "baby Jesus," who she added "was a refugee from violence." Pelosi said, "In Washington, I see an embrace of the idea that this is a humanitarian crisis by people who are not politicizing the issue. What we...

    From reducing student loan debt to expanding voter rights to dealing with the scourge of violent crime, liberals have laid out an ambitious agenda for the waning years of the Obama presidency. At a day-long summit Wednesday organized by Generation Progress, the youth division of the influential Washington-based think tank Center for American Progress, speakers such as Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi articulated their goals to a Washington audience of more than 1,000.

    Right wing women are sexier than left wing women, argues Cosmo Landesman in the latest issue of the Spectator. And it's not like he's biased: this is a self-confessed "liberal-lefty-pro-feminist" talking here. Maybe once conservative women deserved their reputation for being "uptight, prudish and repressed", he says, but not any more. These days it's lefty women who are the problem, constricted as they are by "a sexual correctness that has come in the wake of third-wave feminism." I recently had sex with a woman who writes for the Guardian and in the heat of the moment I said, ‘I love...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco) has shifted her stance on amending a law to make it easier for the U.S. to deport minors, now saying she opposes such a change because it would deprive the children of due process. Senior Democrats showed little willingness to amend the law, but Pelosi told reporters last week that changing it is “not a deal breaker.” She has since backed off from that stance. “We should change the law to treat Mexican children the same as we now treat children from Central America.

    Earlier today, The Hill reported that Nancy Pelosi was ready to concede on the Benghazi select committee, and it didn’t take long for her to do so: House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., names 5 Democrats to the Benghazi select committee – @KateNocera http://t.co/iyPLvA0Ncw— Breaking News (@BreakingNews) May 21, 2014 The only surprise is that it took this long to decide. Pelosi had begun to lean in the direction of participating in the select committee on Benghazi, if for no other reason than to keep from getting left behind in the narrative. Instead of just appointing one troublemaker, though, she’ll...

    WASHINGTON — Surgery patients covered by Medicaid arrive at the hospital in worse health, experience more complications, stay longer and cost more than patients with private insurance, a new study has found. The study, by researchers at the University of Michigan, may offer a preview of what to expect as millions of uninsured people qualify for Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act.

    I know this isn’t really much of a shock: but Nancy Pelosi is, once again, uttering nonsense. This time, her aimless string of platitudes was focused (and I use the word “focused” rather loosely) on immigration reform. Like many of her progressive allies (in both parties) she rambled about the need for America to create a “path to citizenship”. Nancy, we already have a path to citizenship… And generally, the first step to becoming a US citizen isn’t breaking our Federal immigration laws. According to CNS News: “As a country, we cannot, let me say, we cannot prohibit a path...

    Think fast: Which politicians from the other side do you merely dislike, and which do you absolutely despise? Can you say why? I was thinking about this because of Harry Reid, who really, really gets on conservatives' nerves, and seems to be constantly trying to figure out new ways to make them mad. Unlike Nancy Pelosi, who generates contempt from the right mostly for who she is (a San Francisco liberal, a woman with power), with Reid it's about what he does, specifically his propensity for saying things about conservatives that are over the top. Most liberals look at Reid...

    An illegal immigrant who killed a police office while driving the wrong way in on an Arizona freeway Monday had a blood-alcohol level almost three times the legal limit, the Associated Press reported Friday.

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi says she won't decide whether Democrats will participate on the House select committee on Benghazi until after she has a meeting with Republican House Speaker John Boehner. She also says Boehner is "trying to avoid the meeting." But it was Boehner who suggested the meeting in the first place, Pelosi said Wednesday on CNN's "The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer." Democrats are divided on whether they should participate in the hearings, which they call a Republican witch hunt to hurt President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who is expected to make...
