  • Pelosi Tries To Smear McConnell But It Doesn't Go So Well When He Agrees With Her

    One thing that comes with being in politics for awhile: a thick skin and a sense of humor, both of which Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has. Speaker Nancy Pelosi recently took shots at McConnell, calling him the Senate's "grim reaper" because he refuses to bring Democrats' ridiculous legislation before the entire chamber. "Leader McConnell seems to take great pride in calling himself the ‘Grim Reaper.' It’s part of his political campaign," Pelosi said. During an appearance on Fox News' "Ingraham Angle," McConnell said he agreed with Pelosi. “She’s got it right. For the first time in my memory,...
  • Dems accelerate election security push after Trump comments (the Russians are coming - again)

    **SNIP** Lawmakers had already been compiling a fresh package of bills in the aftermath of special counsel Robert Mueller's findings in the Trump-Russia probe. But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Democrats are now pushing ahead with votes because it's part of "what the American people elected us to do." **SNIP** Even though the nations intelligence agencies said from early 2017 that it was clear Russia tried to influence the 2016 election in favor of Trump, Republicans who led both chambers did not move comprehensive legislation to address the issue. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has declined to hold a vote...
  • Alan Dershowitz: Nancy Pelosi should be 'ashamed of herself'

    Famed Harvard law professor and attorney Alan Dershowitz said Thursday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi should be "ashamed of herself" for reportedly saying she wanted to see President Trump in prison. Dershowitz also defended the president's right to fight back. "I have to tell you, as a liberal Democrat, I'm appalled at Nancy Pelosi. The idea of her weaponizing the criminal justice system -- and calling for the imprisonment of the president of the United States without him being charged with any crime, without him being charged with any impeachable offense -- it's just outrageous," Dershowitz said on Fox News'...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday blasted President Donald Trumps comments saying that he would take assistance from a foreign entity ahead of the 2020 election but stopped short of saying they could trigger impeachment. Speaking to reporters, the U.S. House of Representatives top Democrat said her caucus would continue to investigate Trump and his administration through their various committees, one day after Trump said he would take information from foreign sources on any political opponents and might not contact the FBI.

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Tuesday said that she doesn't want to spend much time discussing criticisms President Trump made about her while he was overseas last week, saying that doing so would give Trump a win."I'm done with him," she said at an event on fiscal policy hosted by the Peter G. Peterson Foundation. "I don't even want to talk about it." The Speaker added, "My stock goes up every time he attacks me." During a Fox News interview last week while in Normandy, France, to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day, Trump called Pelosi a nasty, vindictive, horrible...

    Youre here as a prop. Youre functionally here as a prop because they cant impeach Donald Trump: Hand it to Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) for cutting to the heart of John Deans testimony Monday before the House Judiciary Committee. Chairman Jerry Nadler has to put on a show of pursuing President Trump because the partys left wing demands it. But Speaker Nancy Pelosi wont let Nadler go to impeachment hearings because she knows the broader public will see it as a partisan outrage. Pelosis bid to appease the extremists runs to quotes about how she wants to see Trump in...
  • Top Democrats Disappointed Mexico Tariff Threat Worked, Accuse Trump of Caving to Pressure

    Trump’s success in getting Mexico to agree to do more to curb the flow of illegal immigrants through their country and into the United States should be receiving universal praise, but unfortunately, Democrats, who we all know want to see illegal immigration increase to help secure their party’s power in government, couldn’t concede that Trump’s plan worked. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called Trump’s tariff threat, which succeeded in its goal, a counterproductive exercise in “threats and temper tantrums.” “President Trump undermined America’s preeminent leadership role in the world by recklessly threatening to impose tariffs on our close friend and neighbor...

    Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke said Sunday that he believes President Donald Trump has committed crimes when he was asked about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's recent comment that she would prefer to see Trump "in prison" than "see him impeached." "He did," O'Rourke, a former House member from Texas, told ABC's "This Week" when asked about Pelosi's remark and whether he thought Trump had committed crimes that could be prosecuted. "I think that's clear from what we have learned from [special counsel Robert Mueller's] report, but I think those crimes might extend beyond what we've seen in the Mueller report."...

    LA Times via Liberty Headlines ^ | June 6th, 2019 | Jennifer Haberkorn and Sarah D. Wire
    WASHINGTON When House Speaker Nancy Pelosi spoke last weekend at the California state Democratic Party convention, she was greeted with cries of Impeach! Impeach! from the crowd. The reality, however, is far different: Among House Democrats, a majority do not currently support even opening a formal impeachment inquiry, let alone an actual vote to impeach President Donald Trump, House members and staff say. About one-quarter of House Democrats publicly support opening an impeachment inquiry against Trump. More say they are moving closer to that position as the White House continues to defy congressional demands for documents and witnesses. The...

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi told senior Democrats that shed like to see President Donald Trump in prison as she clashed with House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler in a meeting on Tuesday night over whether to launch impeachment proceedings. Pelosi met with Nadler (D-N.Y.) and several other top Democrats who are aggressively pursuing investigations against the president, according to multiple sources. Nadler and other committee leaders have been embroiled in a behind-the-scenes turf battle for weeks over ownership of the Democrats sprawling investigation into Trump. Nadler pressed Pelosi to allow his committee to launch an impeachment inquiry against Trump the second...
  • Farcical Stunt: House Democrats Schedule Contempt Vote Against Barr For...Not Violating the Law

    One thing I can virtually guarantee in all of this: The Attorney General will not be moved one inch by a impending contempt vote in the House of Representatives. Nevertheless, this preposterous piece of political theater demonstrates the fundamental unseriousness of Jerry Nadler and House Democratic leaders, who very much seem desperate to offer morsels of political catharsis to their enraged base, setting aside the merits of the case. In order to keep their tap dance on impeachment going, they need to signal that they share their core voters' indignation. Thus, as I've argued before, Barr derangement is being used...

    RUSH: Now, let me move on from some of these stories about Trump and the U.K. I think half the protests in the U.K. are bought and paid for, by the way, either by the Brits or by the Americans. I think half of its phony. The stupid mayor over there is writing op-eds and saying blasphemous things, comparing Trump to Hitler and the Nazis and so forth. Its just absurd. And yet the presidents going through with this and fighting back as he always does. But back here in the United States the Democrat Party continues to not know...

    Over the weekend, another ranking Democrat, Rep. James Clyburn of South Carolina, appeared to placate the Donkey Partys increasingly radicalized and Marxist base by intimating POTUS Donald Trump likely will be impeached by the House at some point. The Hill reported: When Tapper asked Clyburn if he thought Democrats would launch impeachment proceedings against Trump, he said yes, thats exactly what I feel. What Nancy Pelosi is trying to do, and the rest of us in the House of Representatives, is developing a process to efficiently move on this issue so when we get to the vote, something she calls...

    While House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is urging caution and patience in response to those in her party clamoring for impeachment proceedings against President Trump, her top deputies are signaling its only a matter of time before they begin. South Carolina Rep. Jim Clyburn, the third-highest-ranking Democrat in the House, said in an interview Sunday that he believes impeachment proceedings ultimately will be launched against Trump at some point in the future. He suggested Democrats are already laying the groundwork in Congress. I think weve already begun, Clyburn said on CNN's "State of the Union." Weve got all of these committees...

    For the Houses growing impeachment caucus, June is shaping up to be the most critical month to make their case to a reluctant Speaker Nancy Pelosi. A month packed with subpoena fights, hearings on obstruction of justice and legal battles over Trumps financial records is certain to provide fresh ammunition to grow the pro-impeachment ranks. The temperatures rising, the plot is thickening. Its hard for me to imagine Congress certainly leaving for the August recess without some closure on this, said Rep. Jared Huffman (D-Calif.), who supports impeachment. The Hamlet act is, I think, wearing thin, and its becoming untenable...

Brooks was doxxed by Daily Beast writer and former black hat hacker Kevin Poulsen after he uploaded the viral clip of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi appearing to stammer and slur her words more than usual.

The video artificially slowed the speech and mannerisms of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. It was identified as a fake, but not before it had been shared across multiple social media platforms. (RELATED: Pelosi Says She Will Pray For Trump After Surprise Presser Blasting Democrats) Brooks, a black 34-year-old day laborer from New York, became the medias white whale the minute the Pelosi video was labeled fake news.

    Americas enemies are on notice: The president is no longer an eloquent pushover professor-president but a ruthless real estate developer and television network brawler-president whose principle weapons are blunt candor and walking away from the table. Trump is responding to both his domestic political opponents and Americas actual enemies with the same tactics: blunt, repetitive messaging and use of the walk-off. He is sometimes rude, often full of unnecessary slashes, but always direct. (It often seems as if Trump answers more questions from reporters in a walk to the helicopter than President Barack Obama did in formal press conferences.) And...
