  • Split over Pelosi's 'immorality' comment on border wall reveals fissure in Democratic Party

    Washington Times ^ | Jan 17, 2019 | By David Sherfinski and S.A. Miller
    Senate Democrats are refusing to embrace House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s rhetoric denouncing border walls as an “immorality,” but they are being careful to avoid undercutting her new role as the party’s leader in the shutdown standoff. Mrs. Pelosi has moved unsteadily since seizing the speaker’s gavel amid the partial government shutdown, including the “immorality” comment and her shifting explanations for why she told President Trump to postpone the State of the Union address. Still, she garners strong support from Democrats on both side of the Capitol for remaining steadfast in shutdown fight and refusing Mr. Trump’s demand for $5.7 billion...
  • House Majority Leader Breaks With Pelosi: 'A Wall That Protects People Is Not Immoral'

    Border security is an issue where the Democratic Party is suffering from schizophrenia. They were for it before they were against it. Donald Trump winning the 2016 election caused that, despite some very prominent Democrats, like Barack Obama, supporting border barriers in times past. Now, the war cry is that “a wall is an immorality.” That is coming from Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Walls are immoral. So, what about illegal aliens who murdered American citizens? Apparently, that’s not a concern; dreams of amnesty and expanded Democratic voter rolls have clouded the liberal mind. Pelosi: ‘A wall is an immoralityYet, House Majority...

    Federal workers and contractors not getting paid have had to resort to seeking handouts as the record-breaking shutdown continues for a fourth week. In Washington, DC, the line for free meals stretched down Pennsylvania Avenue between the White House and the Capitol because workers say any little bit helps when no money is coming in. “Accepting that I’m here is demoralizing,” said a teary Blen Woldearegay, a Department of Interior contractor who is worried about possible foreclosure on her new home. “It’s hard. It’s hurtful. I’m not the type of person that likes to do that [ask for help] just...

[Snip] Pelosi's bus was seen circling the US Capitol after the flights were grounded. It was a rough day for Democrats.

    Former acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director Thomas Homan said early Thursday that Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is "disgusting" while blaming her for the partial government shutdown, now in its 27th day. "Tom, what do you make of Nancy Pelosi asking the president, 'Hey, put on hold the State of the Union because of security.' [But] the Department of Homeland Security came out and said, 'We're ready,' " asked "Fox & Friends" co-host Steve Doocy. "You used to be in that department. What do you say to Nancy Pelosi?"

    President Trump latest action of denying Pelosi use of military planes within hours of departure overseas in light of the shutdown, puts Nancy and the Democrats in a goading box If Pelosi acquiesce and allow Trump to speak before all of Congress in the House then she will appear as groveling and weak as she backs down from her supposedly power move praised by the media. The radical leftists in the House wouldn’t like it either and would slam Pelosi as a weakling and not standing up to Trump. President Trump wins If Pelosi denies Trump to speak before all...

    John Roberts of Fox News is now reporting the cancellation came in an ’emergency call’ from the Pentagon to Pelosi’s office less than one hour before scheduled departure. Trump denies use of a government plane for Pelosi’s trip to Brussels, Egypt and Afghanistan. Tells her that she can of course fly commercial if she wants. President Trump on Thursday told House Speaker Nancy Pelosi he was canceling the official government jet for a trip she planned to take to Brussels, Egypt and Afghanistan, saying it would be wrong for her to go while the government is shut down. “In light...

    File this one as yet another instance in which the liberal media took President Trump’s bait, hook, line, and sinker, launching into apocalyptic meltdowns and illustrating for the American public how, for those on the right not in The Resistance, they’re the opposition party.  On Thursday afternoon, CNN suffered a network-wide meltdown over Trump’s letter canceling Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s overseas trip less than an hour before take-off, calling the President a “childish” and “cranky” schoolboy who’s only concerned about “pure politics.”  PANIC!

    The funny part of this isn’t the wrong turn. The funny part is the idea that McConnell, of all people, might be cowed by a bunch of Democrats. It’d be like the Freedom Caucus showing up at Pelosi’s office and demanding she back a balanced-budget amendment. Think she’d be intimidated? {snip} Yes, everyone’s favorite frosh was part of the group. {snip} They left a note signed by more than 30 House freshmen for him on his desk in the Senate, hoping, I guess, that he’ll read it and “run train” on the shutdown.

    When it comes to Super Bowl LIII, air traffic controllers are flying blind. The government shutdown has already resulted in canceled planning meetings for the Feb. 3 game in Atlanta, and if the federal budget impasse continues, airport screeners and flight controllers at the busiest airport in the world will be working on game day for no pay. Dan McCabe, a National Air Traffic Controllers Association representative, told NBC News that his colleagues had been holding meetings over the past year to prepare for the surge in travelers to the area. But now the planning meetings, which included officials from...

    House Democrats on Wednesday were making plans to undermine President Trump at his Jan. 29 State of the Union address. Just past 8:30 a.m., the leadership’s communications arm sent an email to lawmakers urging them to bring furloughed federal workers or other “message-related” guests to the nationally televised event. Unknown to most of her caucus, however, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) had decided on a more confrontational approach. Addressing a closed-door meeting of House Democrats, the speaker read a letter she had just sent to Trump asking him to either postpone the speech until the federal government reopens or deliver...

    Thursday on CNN’s “Newsroom,” network chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta called President Donald Trump “childish” for canceling House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) upcoming international travel in response to her proposal to postpone the State of the Union address until the government is reopened. Acosta said, “Well, our nation’s capital has become a playground, Brooke. The president has responded in sort of a childish way, is the only way to describe it, to the House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, to her letter essentially saying that the State of the Union will be postponed or she asked that it be submitted in...

    President Trump on Thursday appeared to deny military aircraft to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for a foreign trip just minutes before the congressional delegation was set to depart, in a stunning response to her call to delay the State of the Union address amid the government shutdown. In a curt letter, Trump said her trip has been “postponed.” “Due to the Shutdown, I am sorry to inform you that your trip to Brussels, Egypt, and Afghanistan has been postponed. We will reschedule this seven-day excursion when the Shutdown is over. In light of the 800,000 great American workers not receiving...

    President Donald Trump sent House Speaker Nancy Pelosi a letter Thursday informing her that he was postponing her upcoming overseas trip because of the ongoing partial government shutdown. The letter served as the president's response to Pelosi's letter the day before urging the president to either delay his State of the Union address or submit it in writing. "Due to the Shutdown, I am sorry to inform you that your trip to Brussels, Egypt, and Afghanistan has been postponed," Trump wrote. "We will reschedule this seven-day excursion when the Shutdown is over."

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi renewed her call to postpone the State of the Union address but changed her reasons Thursday, saying her worry isn’t that the Secret Service can’t do its job but rather that they shouldn’t be asked to do it while they’re not getting paid. She also chided President Trump for his lack of a response to her suggestion that the Jan. 29 speech be put off. “Very silent,” she said. Mrs. Pelosi signaled she hasn’t decided what she will do if Mr. Trump refused her suggestion to delay the speech.

    American Thinker ^ | 01/17/2019 | Monica Showalter
    It started as the epitome of arrogance. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi sent President Trump a letter, calling on him to postpone his Jan. 29 State of the Union address until the government shutdown ends. She didn't even tell her fellow Democrats until after she did it, the latter being busy rounding up furloughed government workers to stand in the audience for the spectacle to shame Trump. It was all about security concerns, Pelosi claimed. Sadly, given the security concerns and unless government re-opens this week, I suggest that we work together to determine another suitable date after government has re-opened for this...

    House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., acknowledged Wednesday on Fox News' "Special Report with Bret Baier" that border walls "obviously" work in some areas, and he rejected suggestions that barriers should be removed where they already exist. The No. 2 House Democrat additionally asserted that the question of whether to fund President Trump's proposed border wall -- a dispute at the center of the unprecedented partial federal government shutdown -- is "not an issue of morality." Hoyer's comments were seemingly at odds with the positions of other House Democrats, who have argued that border walls like the one Trump is...

    Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen undercut Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s justification for delaying the State of the Union speech, saying Wednesday that her department can handle security for the event even amid a government shutdown. Ms. Nielsen, on Twitter, said the Secret Service is “fully prepared to support and secure the State of the Union.” Earlier in the day Mrs. Pelosi had sent a letter to President Trump telling him to ditch the Jan. 29 date planned for his address to Congress and the country. She said that with the shutdown, she feared the government couldn’t guarantee security.
