    Abortion giant Planned Parenthood has reaffirmed its staunch support for newly re-elected House minority leader Nancy Pelosi, praising her for her “fierce leadership” in reproductive rights. Cecile Richards, Planned Parenthood president and Pelosi’s former deputy chief of staff, underscored Pelosi’s unflagging support for the abortion industry while congratulating her on her reelection Wednesday.

    The Democrat Party has learned no lessons after the drubbing it took at every level of government on election day if its recent moves are any indication. While the state of California is drafting rules to literally curb the supposed global warming effects of cow farts, the Democrat Party in the House voted to keep Calif. Rep. Nancy Pelosi as its minority leader. The vote to keep Pelosi isn’t a big surprise but the move to create regulations for California farmers to curb the effect of cow flatulence is both stunning and absurd. “If we can reduce emissions of methane,...

    House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Wednesday fended off a challenge to her long leadership reign, defeating Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) in a closed-door vote prompted largely by Donald Trump’s unlikely ascension to the White House. Pelosi got 134 votes to Ryan's 63 — winning 68 percent of the votes after declaring before the election that she had the support of two-thirds of the caucus. The victory sends a message that while there's a growing appetite for major changes in the party's leadership structure and messaging tactics, it's not strong enough to loosen Pelosi's grip on a liberal-heavy group...

    Pamela EngelNovember 30, 2016 Top-level members of President-elect Donald Trump's transition team celebrated Democrats choosing to keep Nancy Pelosi as House minority leader, a decision that came after bruising losses for the party in this year's general election. Pelosi, who has been in Congress for 30 years and led House Democrats for the past 14, faced a challenge from Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan, who said the party needed new leadership after Hillary Clinton's shocking loss to Trump in the general election. The House and Senate are also controlled by Republicans. Some top Republicans seemed happy with the continuation of the...

    The Democrats in the US Congress learned nothing; they are stuck in hard left and cannot pull themselves out. Typically they tack to the middle, but their candidate Hillary stayed hard left and there is no one that represents the intransigent left than Pelosi. Doing things over and over expecting things to change is the definition of Insanity according to Albert Einstein. Truly the Democrats and their Mainstream media have learned nothing and will continue to be Trumped.

    The leadership of the Democratic Party, at the highest levels, has consisted of mostly White men and women and a handful of Latinos. What Democratic leadership in the United States Congress, Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) doesn’t have — and has never had — is a representative from its most loyal voting bloc over the last three presidential elections: Black women. To say that all quarters of Democratic Party leadership is in need of change is a vast understatement. The numbers don’t lie. The Democratic Party has lost a historic number of seats across...

Rep. Tim Ryan said Pelosi isn’t a shoo-in for re-election, given the “consternation in our caucus” following election results that handed the White House to Republicans, who also kept control of the House and Senate. Ryan said he has a “shot to win” when House Democrats...

    WASHINGTON – With Nancy Pelosi facing a challenge within her own party after House Democrats’ disastrous election results, the NRCC would like to offer its full support to the embattled former Speaker of the House. Under Nancy Pelosi’s leadership, House Democrats squandered their majority by forcing through unpopular legislation like Obamacare, of which Pelosi famously told us, “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.” After her party’s devastating 63 seat loss in the ensuing 2010 election, Pelosi miraculously maintained her spot as Democratic leader, which, predictably, led to the largest Republican...

Speaking to reporters on Thursday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi compared the hack to the infamous break-in of DNC offices at the Watergate complex that was tied back to President Richard Nixon and the White House. "Let me just say this in terms of the presidential campaign: This is an electronic Watergate," Pelosi said. "This is a break in." Pelosi was responding to a report late Wednesday by The New...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: If you want to know what the real Democrat Party is, here's Nancy Pelosi on PBS. This is the NewsHour last night, Judy Woodruff. "Right now Donald Trump is doing much better than Hillary Clinton among white men, particularly white men who have not attended college. How does Hillary Clinton counter that," Ms. Pelosi?

  • Nancy Pelosi wants the speaker’s gavel back. And she needs Hillary Clinton’s help to do it.

    The sum is staggering by any measure: Since she first joined leadership in 2002, Nancy Pelosi has raised more than a half-billion dollars for fellow Democrats, making her the most prolific fundraiser in Congress. And on her way to amassing this small fortune — $521.9 million to be exact, including $93.1 million this election cycle — she has unquestionably become one of the most powerful politicians in Washington. Ask her whether being a woman has anything to do with that success, and she’ll give you a look that conveys how irrelevant she thinks her gender should be. Pelosi thinks that...

But the Democratic leader also suggested in an interview Tuesday that Clinton faces an uphill climb because those same voters — drawn in large numbers to Donald Trump and the Republicans — are more influenced by hot-button social issues than they are by economic arguments. "So many times, white — non-college-educated — white males have voted Republican. They...
  • Pelosi Calls Sanders Supporters’ Complaints About DNC ‘Legitimate’

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) allowed that supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) have a “legitimate complaint” about the way the Democratic National Committee treated him during the primary race. Yet she pointed to the concessions made at this week's Philadelphia convention to assuage their concerns and the high stakes of this election to urge them to get behind Hillary Clinton. “In terms of how he has been treated at this point, they should have no complaint and many of them are declaring victory in that regard,” Pelosi said on MSNBC Monday night. DNC chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz...
