    Perhaps you’re exhausted from debates on Twitter about “My Pillow.” And those sports reruns. Was Duke really the only school to play in every meaningful basketball game of the past three decades? So now you’re wondering exactly what in the world went on the other day on Capitol Hill. That’s when Congress struggled to adopt the coronavirus bill. What was going on with Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY)? And why, oh why couldn’t lawmakers vote from the comfort of their living rooms – while watching Christian Laettner, Bobby Hurley and Mike Krzyzewski, of course?

    In an appearance with Jake Tapper on CNN Sunday morning, despicable and depraved Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said this: Breaking911 @Breaking911 Pelosi: "As the president fiddles, people are dying" In response, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, appearing on Fox News with Maria Bartiromo, said this: “What she said, she’s blaming the president for people dying because of the way he’s led the country. That’s the most shameful disgusting statement by any politician in modern history. Let me tell you we’ve seen the best of America from our citizens helping each other, delivering groceries, having special shopping hours for senior...

    Furious lawmakers voiced serious concerns on Capitol Hill late Thursday that a Republican House member could “go rogue” and possibly scuttle a vote on the $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus package, and potentially endanger other House members in the process, Fox News has learned. Fox News is told there is deep worry on both sides of the aisle that Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., could try to sidetrack House plans to quickly approve the coronavirus bill via a “voice vote” -- a verbal exercise in which those in favor shout yea, and those opposed holler nay. The loudest side would prevail. “It’s...

    Republican and Democratic senators unanimously voted to pass a coronavirus relief bill late Wednesday that gives $350,000,000 to assist refugees and migrants.Earlier this week, it was revealed that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s relief package would include $300,000,000 for refugee assistance. The new bill, approved by the Senate and now headed to the House, includes an additional $50 million on top of Pelosi’s initial $300 million for refugees.On page 817 of the 880-page bill, the measure calls for “an additional amount for ‘Migration and Refugee Assistance’, $350,000,000, to remain available until expended, to prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus.”Excerpt, read...

    “I don’t have time to follow people’s twits…tweets, Twitters, whatever, tweets — so don’t expect me to comment on that,” Pelosi said. “Well, even beyond Twitter, the President of the United States is signaling that he could open it up,” Bash said. “What is your opinion on that?” Bash said pressing Pelosi. “I don’t care! I don’t care! I don’t care!” Pelosi said as CNN’s Dana Bash brought up Trump’s plans to open America back up for business soon. “It is not scientific based — he’s notion mongering,” Pelosi slurred. Of course Pelosi doesn’t care about Americans going back to...

    You can tell when Speaker Pelosi recognizes a political backlash for her manipulative schemes because it’s the only time she blitzes the media. After suffering a very large political hit, beyond the capability of the media to defend, Pelosi said today the House will take up the Senate coronavirus bill. The writing was on the wall late yesterday as people started digging into the 1,400 page House proposal and exposing all of the far-left ideological efforts within it. Billions were earmarked for nonsense progressive projects and the House scheme was fraught with social engineering that had nothing to do with...

    National Review’s Jim Geraghty reminded us Monday not to forget what Rep. Jim Clyburn told around 200 members of the House Democratic caucus on a conference call last Thursday: “This [the coronavirus relief bill] is a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision.” . . . Speaker Nancy Pelosi thinks we’re all stupid, though, and told CNN’s Dana Bash Tuesday afternoon that everything House Democrats were suggesting in their relief bill had to do with COVID-19.

    House Republicans on Monday night offered a detailed critique of what they called House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s “socialist wish list” in House Democrats’ $2.5 trillion proposal for responding to the coronavirus outbreak. “Speaker Pelosi unveiled legislation aimed at exploiting the COVID-19 public health crisis by attempting to force the inclusion of a socialist wish list of policies that have nothing to do with the public health and economic emergency,” said House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, Louisiana Republican. After poring over the 1,400-page proposal, Mr. Scalise offered his characterization of Republicans’ objections to the following items: Under the heading of “Union...

    House Democrats are being criticized on Monday for allotting expenses in their proposal of an emergency stimulus bill that has nothing to do with the coronavirus outbreak, including $35 million meant for the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington D.C. Following the Senate Democrats derailing the pursuit of a bipartisan-drafted stimulus bill, the House led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., offered their own version of a bill meant to save the economy as the pandemic has pummelled the stock market. However, buried inside the over 1,100-page emergency proposal is money meant to upkeep a popular destination at the country's...

    House Democrats will introduce a sprawling plan to blunt the economic damage from the coronavirus pandemic as efforts to pass a bill in the Senate hit roadblocks Monday. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said her caucus would unveil legislation Monday “that takes responsibility for the health, wages and well-being of America’s workers.” It would include, according to a statement from the California Democrat: Requirements that corporations getting bailout money shield workers’ wages and benefits, and limits on CEO compensation, stock buybacks and layoffs. Direct payments to Americans, along with expanded paid family and medical leave. Grants and loans to small businesses....

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Sunday called on members of Congress to practice “social distancing” in response to the coronavirus outbreak. “As you know, at the direction of the Sergeant at Arms, the House and Senate have canceled Capitol tours for now. As the House continues our work to confront this public health emergency, we must ensure that we can continue to serve our constituents effectively,” Pelosi said in a Dear Colleague letter. “The health and safety of our staff is essential to this mission.

    Friday night's deal includes every Democratic wish except taxpayer-funded abortion and not a single Republican proposal. Those will come later, we're told. We're always told that, and it almost never happens. WASHINGTON, DC — Washington politicians appear poised to fail the country once again, agreeing Friday evening to a one-sided and partisan coronavirus bill disguised as compromise. It’s not a shock to any conservatives in Washington and probably isn’t surprising to Republican voters either. They’re used to betrayal. But the suffering men and women who run America’s small and mid-sized businesses might have hoped they wouldn’t be abandoned in a...

    House leadership has pulled legislation from the floor that would have repealed President Trump’s prior travel bans, amid efforts to focus attention on a coronavirus response bill, Fox News has learned. Democrats made the decision late Wednesday to delay a vote on the No Ban Act to make way for new legislation to help families affected by the virus, said Benjamin Suarato, spokesman for bill sponsor Rep. Judy Chu, D-Calif. That bill is in limbo amid GOP opposition. The House, meanwhile, had debated the legislation on Wednesday that was the Democrats’ response to Trump's crackdown that he pledged during the...

    DEMOCRATIC HOUSE UPSET. Democrat Kathleen Martins scored an upset victory Tuesday in a New Hampshire House special election in Hooksett. In the first state election since the New Hampshire primary, the self-described educator defeated Republican Elliot “Alu” Axelman, a member of the Hooksett Budget Committee and a supporter of the Free State Project, in the heavily Republican town to succeed the late Rep. Dick Marple, who died in December. The final unofficial vote count was 1,000 for Martins and 961 for Axelman.
