    Is House Speaker Nancy Pelosi losing her grip on the Democratic Party? Students at Georgetown University apparently think so. Campus Reform's Cabot Phillips visited the campus in Washington, D.C., to ask people about the intra-party struggle between the old guard, like Pelosi (D-Calif.), and more progressive, far-left lawmakers like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and her outspoken freshmen colleagues. Students were asked: “Between Nancy Pelosi and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who do you view as the face of the Democrat Party?” The results went overwhelmingly in the freshman congresswoman's favor. “She’s got the people. We’re in a time of extremes, she’s pulling pretty...

    Whereas in 2012, Representative Omar tweeted, ‘‘Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.’’;  Whereas in 2018, Representative Omar posted, ‘‘Drawing at-tention to the apartheid Israeli regime is far from hating Jews.’’;  Whereas the latest controversial tweets from Representative Omar suggest Jewish people are buying political support. She tweeted ‘‘It’s all about the Benjamins baby,’’ ....

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi offered a searing response Wednesday when asked about Mayor Bill de Blasio’s nascent presidential campaign — as the mayor stood nearby. “I always say when somebody is serious about running, I’ll be serious about commenting on it,” she said. “Well handled,” responded the mayor, trying to play down the slap.

    The trouble with trying to herd cats is that they have zero interest in being herded and don’t tend to really care how you feel about the subject. That’s the problem that Speaker Pelosi keeps running into with her new class of freshman “superstar” socialists. Having been around This Town long enough to know how things work, Pelosi wisely tried to push her caucus off the impeachment train. It was never going to produce a conviction in the Senate and using such a massive hammer to go after a dubious nail would likely just gin up more support for...

    On March 13, House and Senate Democrats introduced H.R. 5, the Equality Act, a proposal to expand protections in the 1964 Civil Rights Act to people based on their sex, sexual preference or gender identity. The sponsor of the bill, Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.), who is openly gay, said conservatives would "use fear” to stop the legislation and asserted, “we cannot allow claims of religious freedom to be used to discriminate against an LGBT individual.” At a Capitol Hill press conference alongside House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), Cicilline said, “We know that in...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says President Donald Trump's veto of legislation blocking the national emergency he's declared at the Mexican border shows he's defying "the Constitution, the Congress and the will of the American people." The California Democrat says the House will vote March 26 on overriding Trump's veto. The chamber seems certain to fall short of the two-thirds majority needed to succeed. That means his emergency declaration would survive, but it still faces several legal challenges....

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) voiced her support on Thursday for lowering the federal voting age to 16, telling reporters during a press conference that doing so would be a boon to voter engagement in the U.S. Pelosi said Thursday that lowering the voting age would drive interest in politics among younger Americans who are learning about the subject in high school. The Speaker said that changing the voting age to 16 would help drive a higher level of voter awareness and turnout. "I myself have always been for lowering the voting age to 16," Pelosi said. "I think it's...

    Asra Nomani comes with the message not to fear Trump, but to fear Islamic extremism Nancy Pelosi tried to offset the storm of criticism against new Democratic congresswoman Ilhan Omar’s succession of anti-Semitic remarks by claiming “I don’t think Ilhan Omar is Anti-Semitic. She has a different experience in her use of words, and she doesn’t understand that some of them are fraught with meaning she doesn’t realize.” Pelosi showed her ignorance of the cultural and ethnic background that allowed Somali-born Omar to say what she said, and mean what she said. But Pelosi did stumble on the kernel of...

    Speaker Pelosi Revokes Vice President Pence's House Office Space March 12, 20191:40 PM ET Susan Davis The speaker giveth, and the speaker taketh away. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has reclaimed office space her predecessor, Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., awarded to Vice President Pence. Republicans gave Pence, a former House member, a first-floor bonus office in the U.S. Capitol shortly after President Trump was inaugurated in 2017. The vice president rarely used the space, but it was a symbolic gesture of the warm relationship Pence enjoyed with Ryan and the House GOP. The vice president serves as the president of...

    Freshman Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s Twitter bio declares her the “Unbossed Congresswoman” for Michigan’s 13th District. While the moniker has roots in Shirley Chisholm’s successful campaign to become the first black congresswoman, nowadays it also could be seen as a blunt message to Democratic leadership: Nobody is bossing around the class of 2019. And that’s a problem for party bosses. On everything from the Green New Deal to impeachment to criticism of Israel, a squad of first-year congresswomen are flexing their muscle and posing an implicit challenge to Democratic honchos like Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Their stridently liberal agenda – and power...

    It is good to know that the Democrats are against hate. The next thing you know they’ll be against war, crime and broccoli. Faced with condemning freshman U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, a Muslim Somali American, for her anti-Semitic remarks last week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi caved under pressure from a group of freshmen members and went bland. Instead of punishing Omar, Pelosi rewarded her. She also emboldened her by removing her name from the stand alone, specific resolution condemning her for her hateful anti-Semitic remarks in a resolution so watered down to be rendered meaningless

    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Hundreds of students from around the Bay Area are planning to walk out of school on Friday to demand urgent action on climate change. The strike is part of the global Youth Climate Strike calling for politicians to take immediate measures to stave off an impending climate disaster. “Scientists have repeatedly told us we need to act on it,” said Hannah Estrada, a San Francisco high school student “No one seems to want to fight for my future. If no one wants to fight for me, I’m going to have to fight for myself.” Hannah,...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said this week that Texas will be “ground zero” for Democrats in 2020 and predicted that when Texas turns blue soon, it will change the country and the world. “Texas is ground zero for us in the next election,” Pelosi reportedly said at the Travis County Democratic Party’s Johnson Bentsen Richards Dinner. “When you helped win in 2018, you were doing something very patriotic for America and when we win a great Democratic victory — and it’s essential that we win the victory in 2020 — we will know that that victory was our destiny.”...

    President Trump's pursuit of additional border wall funding in his fiscal 2020 budget proposal will only lead to another government shut down, warned Democratic leaders on Sunday. Trump harmed millions when he "recklessy" shut down the government in pursuit of funds to build an expensive border wall, said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., in a joint statement. But Congress refused and the president was "forced to admit defeat" and reopen the government, they added. "The same thing will repeat itself if he tries this again," they warned. "We hope he learned his lesson."...

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi at a press conference in Austin, Texas, focused on “new immigrants” and their right to vote. When we talk about newcomers, we have to recognize the constant reinvigoration of America that they are, that we all have been – our families. And that, unless you’re blessed to be Native American – which is a blessing in itself that we respect – but that constant reinvigoration of hope, determination, optimism, courage, to make the future better for the next generation, those are American traits. And these newcomers make America more American. And we want them, when they come...
