    Dem Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) is one of the biggest liars in Congress. He was the main pusher of the anti-Trump Russiagate hoax. Now, Schiff has higher aspirations. According to a new report, Schiff wants to be Speaker of the House after Nancy Pelosi. Breitbart reported: TRENDING: Here's What Happened Yesterday When J6 Defendant Dustin Thompson Was Found Guilty in a DC Court With rumors of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) retiring amid devastating midterm polling, Schiff, a conspiracy theorist and chairman of the Select Committee on Intelligence, is making furious moves to transplant Pelosi as House leader if she...
  • Matt Gaetz Says He’s Talked With Trump About Making Him Speaker Of The House

    Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) said Tuesday he's spoken directly with former President Donald Trump about installing Trump as House speaker if Republicans win control of the chamber in the midterms, reviving an idea he pushed over the summer that was largely dismissed by all but the most extreme right fringes of the GOP. When asked at a news conference whether he'd spoken with Trump about the idea, a beaming Gaetz—one of the most hard-right representatives in Congress—responded: "I have," though he wouldn't go into further details. Gaetz launched a fundraising effort in the summer after he promised to nominate Trump...
  • Gregg Jarrett: Pelosi's Jan. 6 committee is a charade that smacks of a cover-up. What was her role?

    Mark Twain once mused that if you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect. There will be no pause or reflection by the House Select Committee investigating the January 6th attack on the Capitol. That became abundantly plain as the hearings opened on Tuesday. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi won’t allow it. Her narrative of what happened that terrible day will be the only one permitted – all other facts be damned. Pelosi’s Democratic Party is the majority in the House of Representatives, albeit narrowly. As Speaker, she rules like a tyrant. She...
  • Pelosi Reelected Speaker By House Democrats Despite Huge House Losses

    Nancy Pelosi has been reelected speaker of the House by her caucus for the next session of Congress, marking what will be her fourth term with the gavel. The caucus vote was conducted virtually, but Pelosi was approved with a voice vote. Pelosi, 80, did not not face any challenge for her post, but she will also need to secure a simple majority — 218 Democratic votes — by the full House of Representatives in January to be sworn in again as speaker. In 2019, several Democrats voted for someone other than her on the floor, but with a slimmer...
  • Nancy Pelosi refuses to denounce socialism as she seeks another term as speaker

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is refusing to denounce socialism as the left-wing ideology continues to drive a wedge within the Democratic Party -- and as she works to lock down enough support for another term as speaker. Socialists have become some of the most high-profile members of the Democratic Party. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., who earned the second-most delegates in both the 2016 and 2020 Democratic primaries, thanked socialist groups "for their extraordinary efforts in helping to make Biden's victory possible. The subject of socialism is apparently becoming a growing concern among Democrats behind closed doors. A leaked recording...

    Did the salon owner make Pelosi make an appointment? Did she make her take her mask off? Of course not. There is no politician in Washington so insulated from criticism as Nancy Pelosi. Still surrounded by all the good wishes of sycophantic journalists in awe of her previous tenure as Speaker, in DC Pelosi gets away with saying a wide variety of crazy things, committing herself to extreme positions, and engaging in pointless and occasionally self-damaging battles. Any outside perspective would see her as flailing and ineffectual. But in Washington, she is the Grand Dame of Capitol Hill who can...

    The Washington Times ^ | 07.19.2020 | Andrew Blake
    Rush Limbaugh predicted dire consequences Thursday should Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota someday become the speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives. The host of “The Rush Limbaugh Show” discussed the hypothetical situation during his syndicated radio program in response to a question about the congresswoman asked by a caller. Ms. Omar, a former Somali refugee who fled the country as a child, was not born in the U.S. and is therefore constitutionally ineligible to become president, the caller noted. But the House speaker is third in line for the presidency under the Constitution, meaning whoever holds that role...

    On Jan. 3, Nancy Pelosi presided over my swearing-in ceremony. With my hand on the Holy Bible surrounded by my wife and children, I thought I was standing next to the progressive hero, the Democrats’ top tactician, and the speaker of the House. I was dead wrong. Now I know there isn’t just one speaker, there are four. The self-proclaimed “squad,” Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and Ayanna Pressley run the show in the People’s House. They’ve flanked Pelosi from the Left and stolen her mantle as the leader of the so-called progressives. Pelosi’s fall from grace has...

    Call it the chaos theory for picking the next House speaker. Those Democrats trying to stop California Rep. Nancy Pelosi from reclaiming the job say they don’t need a rival candidate just yet. Instead, they plan to show that Pelosi lacks the votes to win the race. And then, they say, new challengers will emerge. It’s strategy that has other Democrats cringing at the prospect of their new House majority in disarray. They say voters swept them to office in this month’s elections to govern, not become bogged down by the kind of Republican infighting that sent Ohio Rep. John...

    During an interview on MSNBC’s AM Joy on Sunday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi pointed fingers at NBC for “undermining” her chance of getting back the Speaker’s gavel if Democrats take the House in November. Earlier this week, NBC published an article citing 51 Democrats who would not support Pelosi for House Speaker. According to NBC: As Democrats battle to retake control of Congress in November, their leader — Nancy Pelosi — could also be facing a coming fight of her own. Fifty Democrats running for the House say they won’t support the California lawmaker for speaker, according to an...

    Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) said in a new interview that "it is more than a possibility - it's a probability" that the next House Speaker will be an African-American. Fudge told Politico that she backs Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.), who is currently the third-ranking House Democrat, for the position. Other black Democratic lawmakers who some have floated as successors to Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) if their party wins back a majority in the midterms include Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (N.Y.), chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), Rep. Cedric Richmond (La.), Rep. Elijah Cummings (Md.) and Fudge, Politico reported. In an...

Jim Jordan, a leader in the conservative House Freedom Caucus and former chairman of the group, told CNN he will announce his run for speaker of the House of Representatives in a letter to colleagues Thursday. Jordan has long said he was interested in the post, but the news comes after Jordan has faced questions about his time as an assistant coach at Ohio State University and whether he knew about alleged sexual abuse by a former Ohio State medical doctor who treated athletes there.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The body of evangelist Billy Graham will lie in honor under the U.S. Capitol rotunda next week as Congress pays tribute to a clergyman who counseled presidents and preached the Gospel to millions worldwide, House Speaker Paul Ryan said on Thursday. Graham, who died at his home near Asheville, North Carolina, on Wednesday at age 99, will arrive at the white-domed Capitol on Feb. 28 and lie in honor there until the following day, Ryan said in a statement. “Members of the public and Capitol Hill community are invited to pay their respects to the late reverend...

    Axios.com’s Mike Allen reports that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is now considered a lock for Speaker of the House in 2019, as her party is expected to sweep the 2018 midterm elections. If so, it would be one of the most remarkable comebacks in political history, after Pelosi led her party to an historic defeat in 2010 after serving as the first female Speaker for four years, then clung to power over a shrinking minority party for eight. Allen notes: “It would take a flip of 24 seats for Dems to take over. The average loss for the...

    Florida House Speaker Richard Corcoran wants Congress to stop doling out payments for sexual harassment settlements, payouts that have come to light as the issue has come into greater national focus. He sent a letter Monday to House Speaker Paul Ryan after numerous media reports about the Office of Compliance releasing information that it has paid $17 million since 1997 from a fund it manages. Those settlements, however, cover multiple types of workplace misconduct settlements, and specific data covering the cost of resolving sexual harassment complaints are not publicly available. “I ask you to please bring a swift end to...

    The Wall Street Journal ^ | April 24,2017 | By Rebecca Ballhaus
    Americans hold dim views of Congress and of House Speaker Paul Ryan, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll finds, with favorable opinions declining since February. Nearly three-quarters of Americans disapprove of Congress’s job performance, up 12 percentage points since February, the poll found. Just one-fifth said they approve of the job Congress is doing, a drop of 9 points. Mr. Ryan (R., Wis.) is one focus of growing dissatisfaction, with 40% saying they view the House speaker negatively, compared with 22% who had a positive view—an 18-point gap. In February, unfavorable opinions outweighed positive ones by just 1 point.
  • RUMORS: If RyanCare fails, Trey Gowdy may replace Paul Ryan as Speaker of the House

    With the likely failure of RyanCare on the horizon, the landscape of the Republican party may drastically restructure itself. Ryans heathcare bill was supposed to be a full repeal and replacement of ObamaCare, but many conservatives have abandoned Ryan’s bill, citing it keeps many of President Obama’s policies intact. As a result, President Trump modestly went to Capitol Hill and urged congress and threatened their chances of reelection if they fail to launch. Paul Ryan barely received an endorsement from Donald Trump given Ryan’s stigma of being a Republican In Name Only. Enter Trey Gowdy, the man who publicly lambasted...

    Donald John Trump is our 45th president elect because of the large number of first time-- or first time in a long time--voters who came out to support him. Many of these supporters hate politics as usual and are fed up with the smug arrogance of the political class in Washington, DC. Conservatives – myself included – hate Paul Ryan. His treachery revolts us; but we will just have to realize that throwing Ryan out would be a terrible first signal to Trump’s base, a base that is sick of the same old same old in Washington. Ryan is safe...
