    One month ago, President Trump took the oath of office. Since taking office, I believe his dangerous, incompetent policies and actions have jeopardized our national security, our economy, and our values. It seems to me, every day the American people see new evidence of the financial, personal, and political grip the Russians have on the President.
  • NANCY PELOSI IS LIVID ABOUT TRUMP'S BUDGET DIRECTOR'S 'RADICAL' PLAN TO REIN IN DC SPENDING

    In a press briefing Thursday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. (F, 10%) attacked Rep. Mick Mulvaney, R-S.C. (A, 94%) for having a “radical agenda” and “very bad judgement in terms of values in a budget.” While Pelosi was giving her press conference, Mulvaney was confirmed by the Senate, 51-49, as director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). Only one Republican, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz. (F, 32%) voted against confirming Mulvaney. “You remember — some of you were here — for the shutdown of government a few years ago? Mulvaney was the leader of the pack. And he...

    Building a border wall “undermines who we are as a country,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told a news conference on Thursday. She said she is “opposed to the wall”—“politically, substantively, officially, spiritually, religiously, personally.” She also described recent ICE raids across the country as “another assault on our values.” “In the past week, we have witnessed ICE raids across our nation targeting parents, students and a DACA-protected dreamer...We have seen press reports that federal immigration agents went to the El Paso County courthouse and arrested an undocumented woman who had just received a protective order after suffering domestic violence....

    Democratic Reps. Nancy Leosi and Elijah Cummings issued statements calling for an investigation into the activities of former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, citing a tweet that suggested other people were involved in the incident. The New York Times also cited the tweet in their reporting. The problem for Pelosi, Cummings, and the Times is that the tweet originated on a fake Michael Flynn Twitter account.

    BALTIMORE – They may be the minority party, but House Democrats are feeling energized these days – and for good reason. They point to the grassroots protests, marches and town-hall disruptions of recent weeks as a sign that President Trump has already sparked involvement by their base at historic levels. The high-profile protests so far have been organic, not organized by any party apparatus – from the women’s march on inauguration weekend to the thousands who showed up at airports following Trump’s executive order temporarily banning refugees and immigrants from seven majority-Muslim countries. Dozens of lawmakers joined in the events...

    BALTIMORE –The hail of tweets, executive orders and announcements from the White House in President Trump’s first two weeks in office drew a uniform reaction from House Democrats: opposition and outrage. But in the age of Trump, when news moves at a stunning pace and can change on a dime, Democrats are searching for the most effective way to push back. The topic dominated discussion as House Democrats opened their annual retreat here Monday. Unlike their counterparts in the Senate, Democrats in the lower chamber don’t have many legislative ways to fight against the White House and congressional Republicans. They...

When asked what Democratic leadership will do to help those affected by Yemen’s ongoing civil war, the House Minority leader chose to answer by pointing the finger at Donald Trump and his “incompetent” administration. Again — just so everyone’s clear — she blamed a man who has been in office for less than two weeks for a war that began more than two years ago.

    The Democratic Party has problems. Ever since Democrats suffered major, unexpected losses in the November election, political commentators have been speculating about why.

Pelosi emphasized that Democrats are people of faith, but she said they may need to work harder to make that clear. Later in the interview, Pelosi accused Republicans,...

Yet, they passed it anyway, without one Republican vote. Before the vote, House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi showed her hand by infamously noting they had to "pass it to see what's in it." Now, as Republicans have begun the process of repealing the ACA, Pelosi is acting as if the original document was gone over with a fine tooth comb.

But the bulk of the bill — if you look back to the history of it — the bulk of the bill was done on the 60-vote rule, not under reconciliation. CNS NEWS REPORTER: But it passed without a single Republican vote.

    Nancy Pelosi has the answer to Democrat unemployment To paraphrase the immortal Albert Rosenfield, “This is what we call a real three-hanky story.” The folks at The Politico are pacing the floor, wringing their hands, furrowing their brows, and fretting about jobs. No, they’re not distraught over the 95 Million people who are out of the labor force. Those people can fend for themselves. They’re troubled by the impending poverty facing Hillary loyalists and operatives in Washington D.C.

    Using a visa loophole to fire well-paid U.S. information technology workers and replace them with low-paid immigrants from India is despicable enough when it’s done by profit-making companies such as Southern California Edison and Walt Disney Co. But the latest employer to try this stunt sets a new mark in what might be termed “job laundering.” It’s the University of California. Experts in the abuse of so-called H-1B visas say UC is the first public university to send the jobs of American IT staff offshore. That’s not a distinction UC should wear proudly. UC is training software engineers at the...

    At her weekly briefing with journalists House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) criticized them from reporting on the hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee (DNC), calling them ‘accomplices’ in what she said was an effort by Russia to disrupt the U.S. presidential election. […] “It was every single day you reported that there was an email that was embarrassing to the Clinton administration without saying, ‘We know this because of disruption by a foreign power into our electoral system,’” said the House Minority Leader. ‘You knew that,” Pelosi said. “You knew it was the Russians.” …

    After the Republican avalanche of a victory in last month's elections, there was still more good news for the Grand Old Brand New Party courtesy of Nancy Pelosi. It seems she's eked out a narrow victory over a Democratic insurgency against her stultified leadership of the party in the House, a leadership that has been rusting for the past 14 years. If everything isn't coming up roses for the GOP, at least there are tulips covering the horizon the way daffodils do Wye Mountain every spring. And all Nancy Pelosi could say about her aforementioned "leadership" was the same thing...
  • Pelosi: Tillerson Not Suited for ‘Revered Position’ of Secretary of State

    Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” while discussing President-elect Donald Trump naming ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson as his secretary of state, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said, “With all due respect to the president’s nominee, perhaps he’s suitable for something else,” adding that secretary of state was “a revered position.” Pelosi said, “First of all, let’s — what is the job? The job — the secretary of state is really in line to succession to the president of the United States … Well, by sequence, they are, but that’s the primary one and has special status. So the secretary...

    Remember when the Electoral College was evil and needed to be abolished. Ten electors, including Nancy Pelosi's daughter, have a great new plan. And it doesn't take much reading between the lines. Ten members of the Electoral College, including Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi’s daughter Christine and a former member of Congress, are demanding a briefing from U.S. intelligence officials on any ongoing investigations into Donald Trump’s ties to Russia. In a letter to Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, the electors — nine Democrats and one Republican — argue that they require the information ahead of Dec. 19, when the Electoral College...
