This page contains material about the first female Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, her
goals and her agenda, and the news and opinion you may have missed if you get all your information
Her main goal, presumably, is the advancement of the
Democratic Party Platform, which has a page
of its own.
Recently, Ms. Pelosi seems to have come to a fork in the road: She is a Catholic, but she
also is a proponent of abortion, also known as fetal homicide. This subtopic is now discussed in a
subsection of its own, located here.
Another big subtopic that comes and goes from the headlines is Ms. Pelosi's taste for luxurious air travel
at the taxpayers' expense. That topic is discussed here.
Nancy Pelosi Now a Lock for Speaker of the House in 2019. 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.
Takes on Pelosi for Saying Companies Just Giving Out 'Crumbs' After Tax Cuts. Laura Ingraham took on House
Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi for saying companies' bonuses to workers following the passage of the Republican tax cuts are
mere "crumbs." "Maybe it's a crumb if you live in Pacific Heights or the Sea Cliff neighborhood of San Francisco and
you're married to Paul Pelosi, maybe then it's a crumb. But for most people it's real money," she said.
Management CEO reacts to Nancy Pelosi 'crumbs' comments on bonuses. Waste Management CEO James Fish responded
to Rep. Nancy Pelosi's (D-Calif.) criticism of bonuses given to employees following the passing of the Republican-backed
tax reform bill. In an exclusive interview with FOX Business' Liz Claman, Fish said the bonuses will be go to drivers,
landfill workers and customer service agents. "We are giving it to those folks not just because not only are they hard
working, but they don't participate in our annual bonus which typically are for salary employees," Fish said during an
interview on "Countdown to the Closing Bell" Friday [1/12/2018]. The House Minority Leader on Thursday called the
recent wave of corporate bonus given to workers as a result of the Republican tax bill as "crumbs."
Pelosi's elitist Democrats — America, this is the party of the rich, sneering at the poor. Here in
my home state of California, in response to President Trump signing the GOP tax reform bill into law, state Senate Democratic
leader Kevin de Leon has taken up a new cause: fighting for the right of the richest Californians to evade their taxes.
It's almost unbelievable — but true. De Leon (who is also the leading challenger to Sen. Dianne
Feinstein in her primary battle as she seeks re-election this year) has proposed setting up a new so-called charity that
would enable the Silicon Valley and Hollywood elite to claw back their losses from the Trump administration's new tax reform
law. [...] Another prominent California Democrat also revealed her true colors this past week over taxes: our old friend,
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. She dismissed $1,000 worker bonuses given in response to the GOP tax cuts as "crumbs."
Francisco plutocrat Nancy Pelosi sniffs disdain at Americans' tax bonuses, calling them 'crumbs'. The only
thing worse than Senator Elizabeth Warren having to pretend she likes the tax cuts she vehemently opposed in Congress is
wealthy House minority leader Nancy Pelosi looking down her nose in disdain at the millions of Americans celebrating their
tax bonuses. She actually called the spectacle "pathetic" and the bonuses "crumbs."
repeats words, overrules own statement, slurs 'prescription drugs'. Nancy Pelosi has just returned to
Washington, and she brought her bizarre behavior back with her. As the House Minority Leader returned to her weekly
press conference, she was seen repeating words, having trouble saying "Martin Luther King" and slurring "prescription drugs."
Pelosi Dismisses Workers' 'Pathetic' Tax Reform Bonuses. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, one of the richest
members of Congress, dismissed the bonuses that many companies are giving to their workers due to lower tax rates as "crumbs"
and "pathetic." "A number of bonuses — one of the bonuses was in a union contract and then they added a
little more money to that. That same firm just told the employees they were going to be laying off 1,500 people and if
they wanted to save their jobs, they could work 32 hours. In terms of the bonus that corporate America receives versus
the crumbs they are giving to workers to put the schmooze on is so pathetic," Pelosi said on Thursday in response to a question
from The Daily Caller's Kerry Picket.
why hasn't anyone ever seen Trump's supposed dementia? Like anyone else, politicians do get old, and when they do, their age
frequently becomes obvious in public. One example is House minority leader Nancy Pelosi, who has repeatedly slurred her speech and
spoken gibberish, both of which point to declining mental capabilities.
Lists 8 Things She'd Rather Spend Trump's 'Immoral' Border Wall Funding On. On Friday, House Minority Leader
Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) listed some of the things she'd do with the money President Donald Trump wants to protect
America from the threats posed by illegal immigration. On her Twitter page, Pelosi introduced her series of posts by
claiming the border wall funding "could do so much more" — if it wasn't used to secure the border:
"President Donald Trump @realDonaldTrump, that border wall funding you are asking for (again) could do so much more good in
other places...." Pelosi followed with eight separate Tweets, each touting something she'd spend the border wall funds
on — ranging [from rebuilding] Puerto Rico and subsidizing high-speed internet to expanding the State Department.
Danger in 2018 for
the Party of the Rich (Democrats). [Scroll down] According to the the Center for Responsive Politics, she
[Nancy Pelosi] has a net worth of $196 million. And that was in May 2017. Since then there's been another 10+%
run-up in the stock market, so that would conservatively push her well over the $200 million mark thanks, ironically, to the
policies of Donald Trump. (Okay, not entirely, but unquestionably to some extent.) Over the last decade or so, American
politics has had something of a role reversal. The Democrats have increasingly become the Party of the Rich —
Silicon Valley, Hollywood, media, a good swath of Wall Street — making Pelosi's statement and similar remarks made
by Schumer particularly absurd. Moreover, it is well known — but not well known enough yet — that
what Pelosi said was a straight-out lie.
Democrats Stink of Weakness and Defeat. Armageddon, she called it. That was Nancy Pelosi, the insane woman who
is somehow in charge of the Democrats' House caucus, speaking about the just-passed Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. The bill would later
pass in the House, largely on the same party lines it's passed throughout the legislative process, due to procedural necessities,
Wednesday [12/20/2017]. [...] We wouldn't take Pelosi seriously, because it's impossible to truly do so. After all,
she's completely crazy and it's obvious to anyone who bothers to observe both the gibberish emanating from her lips and the
unstable body language surrounding it. Except that the unhinged sentiments she offered as a reaction to the passage of
a bill which will provide a tax cut to 80 percent of the American public aren't just hers. They belong to the entire
tax bill causes Nancy Pelosi to lose remaining fragment of her mind. The GOP tax bill is now very close to
passage, and as that became clear last night, Nancy Pelosi put on her spelunking gear for another deep descent into insanity
and self-unawareness: [...] A warning about plutocracy from a super-wealthy member of Congress who's been in power for
decades? Pelosi might be trying to convince people the tax bill will cost them their lives, but it clearly has yet to
even take away her unintentional sense of humor.
Ditches Tax Protest After No One Shows Up. Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi bailed on a "highly-anticipated"
protest against the GOP tax cuts making their way through Congress on Monday, ditching the event at the last minute after only dozens
of liberal demonstrators turned up at the event inside the Capitol. A reporter for left-leaning MSNBC news was on the scene to
cover the event, but was forced to admit the blatant failure on-air, saying the protest was nothing like "what we saw with the
Pelosi Claims Tax Bill 'Does Violence' To Vision Of Founding Fathers. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi spewed
utter nonsense on the House floor on Tuesday, hysterically claiming that the Republican's tax plan "does violence to the
vision of our Founders." Pelosi railed against Republican lawmakers in her speech, decrying the bill as a morally obscene
"scam" designed to "install a permanent plutocracy." "This GOP tax scam is simply theft, monumental, brazen theft from
the American middle class and from every person who aspires to reach it," Pelosi said. "
super PAC keeps donations from owners of prostitution website Backpage. The uproar over sexual harassment that
began with the Harvey Weinstein scandal has intensified the scrutiny of political contributions linked to Backpage, which law
enforcement officials say is the chief platform for activities far worse than harassment, including sexual slavery and child
prostitution. Mrs. Pelosi isn't the only Democrat struggling to deal with the piles of cash that Backpage's owners
spread around to candidates and state Democratic parties over the years. Even Ms. Harris, a California Democrat
who is now a U.S. senator, ducked the issue. Her office wouldn't respond to repeated emails about Backpage money going
to House Majority PAC and other Democratic organizations.
Pinocchios For Pelosi On Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act. As with most things these days, it started with a
tweet. After the House passed their version of the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, the former Speaker of the House (now
Minority Leader), Nancy Pelosi expressed her displeasure by going on social media and informing everyone that the Republicans
were once again trying to unleash drooling hordes of criminals and dungeon dwellers on the nation armed to the teeth.
Pelosi, religious leaders reach deep into teachings to preach against GOP tax plans. From America's Catholic
bishops to prominent Christian pastor Jim Wallis, congressional Republicans' push for an overhaul of the tax code has been
called nothing less than ungodly. The debate about tax rates and income numbers has taken on pointedly religious
overtones, with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat, citing Pope Francis and St. Augustine in
attacking the bill and saying it would signify Armageddon. Mr. Wallis led a protest against the tax plan at the
Hart Senate Office Building, reading Bible verses before he was escorted away by Capitol Police. The U.S. Conference of
Catholic Bishops released a lengthy attack on the tax bill, adopting most of Democrats' predictions and criticisms of the
Republicans' plans to cut tax rates on most Americans.
More about Mr.
Wallis here. He was one of the people that
Barack H. Obama used to put a religious veneer on an otherwise obviously
Pelosi Struggling To Keep House Democrats In Line. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is increasingly
struggling to keep Democrats in line and appears to be following her members on crucial issues rather than leading
them. On Wednesday [12/6/2017], House Democrats introduced a motion to impeach President Trump, despite Pelosi's
insistence for months that Democrats hold off on pushing impeachment. Fifty-eight Democrats voted in favor of
impeachment on Wednesday, despite Pelosi's objections.
'God Is With Us' on Demanding DACA Fix in Budget Deal. Thursday [12/7/2017] at her weekly briefing on Capitol
Hill, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said God is with the Democrats on their fight to protect recipients of the
Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) as part of a deal to fund the government.
Remember, the Democrats are constantly yelling about
the Separation of Church and State?
Accused Of Sexual Harassment: Pelosi Knew And Did Nothing About It. A first-term Democratic congressman
accused of sexual harassment said that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi knew about the allegations while he was running for
office and supported him anyway, putting millions of dollars behind his 2016 congressional campaign. [...] Pelosi was quick
to demand [Nevada Rep. Ruben] Kihuen's resignation after the allegations became public, but she actually has known about
the harassment allegations for a while, Kihuen told ABC News.
GOP tax proposal 'the worst bill in the history' of Congress. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.)
declared unequivocally on Monday that the GOP tax overhaul is the worst legislation ever considered by Congress. "I
have said that this was stiff competition by some of the other things they have put forth, is the worst bill in the history
of the United States Congress," Pelosi said during House floor debate on the tax proposal. Pelosi cited the rushed
process and impact on the deficit to justify her assertion. [Video clip]
slammed by GOP for calling tax bill 'Armageddon'. House minority leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., isn't holding
back when it comes to criticizing the tax overhaul that the Senate passed early Saturday morning [12/2/2017]. Approached
for comment on the sweeping legislation — worth roughly $1.4 trillion — Pelosi declared the legislation
"the end of the world." She added, "This is Armageddon." The comments mirrored similar ones she made on social media
earlier in the day. "The #GOPTaxScam is one of the worst bills to be brought to the floor in the history of the United
States," she tweeted. "We will fight with everything we have to stop this bill from becoming the law of the land."
Pelosi suffers face spasms, brain freezes while denouncing Conyers. As the media focus has shifted to the
alleged sexual harassers in the Democratic ranks, questions are not going away about Nancy Pelosi's continued bizarre
behavior. The House Minority Leader held her weekly press conference, and while the media focused on her call for
accused serial harasser John Conyers, they overlooked her frequent flubbed words, brain freezes, and face spasm that occurred
seconds into the appearance.
should resign. Facing criticism for going too soft on sexual harassment, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.)
on Thursday [11/30/2017] called for Rep. John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.) to resign as the allegations of sexual misconduct have
mounted against him. "The allegations against Congressman Conyers, as we have learned more since Sunday, are serious,
disappointing and very credible," Pelosi said during a briefing in the Capitol, reading from a statement. "It's very
sad. The brave women who have come forward are owed justice. I pray for Congressman Conyers and his family and
wish them well. However, Congressman Conyers should resign," she said.
Rule: Our Pigs Are Better Than Their Pigs. Struggling to summon a defense of John Conyers over the
weekend, Nancy Pelosi looked a bit like a malfunctioning robot with a depleted battery. But after warming up, she
finally hit on the button "icon." Pelosi uttered the word icon as a cue to end all discussion. She had spoken her
formula of absolution over Conyers and now it was time for NBC's Chuck Todd to let the penitent go in peace. Pelosi's
comment completes feminism's arc of hypocrisy: Clarence Thomas's tormentors have become John Conyers's defenders.
The same feminists who scoffed at Thomas's description of his hearing as a "high-tech lynching" now play the race card for
Conyers as a civil rights "icon." The long-awaited "reckoning" looks more like the tired rationalization, as feminists,
for all their advertised anguish in recent days, return to what can be called the Pelosi rule: our pigs are better
than their pigs.
Nancy Pelosi Prove In Minutes Why Democrats Are Perennial Losers. Republicans, including GOP leaders Paul Ryan
and Mitch McConnell, have said Roy Moore should step aside and let somebody else take his place against Democrat Doug Jones
in the Alabama race for the U.S. Senate. On the Democratic side, four women (two on the record) have accused Al Franken
of groping them and Democrats have quietly rallied around him. But then came the accusations about Democratic
Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich). Not only was Conyers accused, but he paid out settlements that were not public
and paid for by John Q. Taxpayer.
Pelosi Has Been Enabling Sexual Predators For Decades. [Scroll down] But that's exactly what Pelosi
is: That woman, a faux feminist who has been enabling sexual predators for decades. We can start with her full
throated defense of former President Bill Clinton. She's been defending his documented and repetitive bad behavior
since the 1990s and did so again on Meet The Press Sunday [11/26/2017]. During her time as Speaker of the House,
Pelosi ignored disgraceful sexual harassment by former Congressman and San Diego Mayor Bob Filner.
Nancy Pelosi Botches
the #MeToo Moment. On Meet the Press [11/26/2017], House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi laid an absolute
stink bomb in an interview with host Chuck Todd. [...] Todd pressed Pelosi on whether Michigan Democrat John Conyers, who,
after a secretive process, settled sexual harassment complaints from a former female employee who says she was fired for
resisting the congressman's sexual advances. Others have come forward alleging misconduct as well, but Democrats —
led by Pelosi — took no action against Conyers. Pelosi expressed unfamiliarity with the allegations, asking
Todd if it was one or two. She called Conyers an "icon." Todd asked Pelosi if she believed the accusers, and she
said she didn't know who they were because they were anonymous. She called for due process, even though Conyers, as
Todd pointed out, had already gone through a process that resulted in him settling with his former employee. It's not
clear what other process Conyers is due.
Roy Moore is presumed to be guilty, but...
Pelosi: John Conyers deserves 'due process'. [Scroll down] Appearing on "Meet The Press" earlier
in the day [11/26/2017], House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi urged "due process" before making conclusions about Rep. Conyers,
saying the congressman is "an icon" who has worked to protect women. "We are strengthened by due process. Just because
someone is accused — and was it one accusation? Is it two?" Pelosi asked.
Pelosi brain freeze: Confused about time of day, botches name of own guest. Prior to the start of a
Friday [11/3/2017] press conference intended to attack President Trump's tax cut proposal, Nancy Pelosi was handed a folder
of what she was supposed to tell reporters. It might have been good for her to actually browse it before stepping to
the microphone. As the House Minority Leader was waiting for several invited guests to file in behind her, she could
hear muttering to herself, "Is it still morning?" [Video clip]
struggles to form sentences during TV interview, calls Robert Mueller 'mother'. Nancy Pelosi's trouble with the
English language seems to be growing by the day. During a Sunday morning [10/22/2017] appearance on MSNBC, the House
Minority Leader stumbled over words, struggled to form sentences, and called special counsel Robert Mueller "mother."
No Culture War. Virtually every chance House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has had to dispel her reputation as a
delusional, establishment hack completely out-of-touch with reality, she always finds some way to reveal that she really is a
delusional, establishment hack completely out-of-touch with reality. Her latest guffaw occurred during her appearance
on Friday's [10/20/2017] The View where she denied America is in a culture war and that Democrats have division in
House Democrat Calls on Pelosi to Step Down. A high-ranking House Democrat on Thursday [10/5/2017] called on Rep. Nancy
Pelosi of California to step down as minority leader to make way for a new generation. "Our leadership does a tremendous job," said
Rep. Linda Sanchez of California, "but I do think we have this real breadth and depth of talent within our caucus, and I do think it's
time to pass the torch to a new generation of leaders, and I want to be a part of that transition. I want to see that happen."
Sanchez, the fifth-ranking Democrat in the House, was interviewed on C-SPAN by two reporters who asked her about the current makeup of
Pelosi Thanks Illegal Immigrants for Breaking the Law. Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi thanked 'Dreamer' parents for
breaking US law and bringing their children into the nation illegally on Wednesday, saying the nation "owes a debt" to the undocumented
families. The California Congresswoman expressed her gratitude during a televised town hall event on CNN, where she was asked whether
President Trump or Congress was ready to move ahead on permanent DACA legislation. "Our Dreamers, they make America dream again.
They're so lovely. And frankly, we owe a debt to your parents for bringing you here," said Pelosi. "You're such a brilliant
part of our future, a constant reinvigoration of America, that's what newcomers are." [Video clip]
suffers brain freeze while defending NFL kneelers. Nancy Pelosi defended unemployed NFL quarterback Colin
Kaepernick's "First Amendment" right to disrespect the American flag during the national anthem, even if she struggled to say
his name. During an appearance on "Meet The Press," Pelosi sided with the former 49ers quarterback, and other players
refusing to stand for our country.
Dreamers' parents 'did a great thing' in sneaking them into U.S.. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said
Wednesday that illegal immigrant parents who brought their children to the U.S. in defiance of the law "did a great thing,"
giving the country an infusion of successful young people. Mrs. Pelosi's comments strike a dissonant note from
many analysts, who while saying the Dreamers are sympathetic since they had no say in the decision, say the parents do
deserve blame for creating the problem.
Pelosi gets mau-maued by the DACA DREAMers. Nancy Pelosi got more than she bargained for when she came out to
champion DREAMers and congressional institutionalization of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals act in San Francisco
Monday [9/18/2017]. Instead of the adoring crowds she expected, she got a boiling-with-rage mob of actual illegal aliens
who mau-maued her as the bad guy, drowning her out with chanted shouts of "Liar! Liar!" and accusations of being a
charm of the Dreamers. You have probably heard that Nancy Pelosi was confronted yesterday [9/18/2017] by a
gaggle of honking DREAMers of the kind she had staged an event to support. [...] The DREAMers did not make the decision to
break into the United States. Here, however, they look like perpetrators. We are not to hold it against their
parents that they brought their ill-mannered progeny with them, or that they failed to teach them manners. Watching
this production, however, I find it unnatural not to resent it. Democrats want our huge population of illegal aliens to
come out of the shadows, where they supposedly reside when they are not drawing on social services. If only.
Bring back the shadows! Democrats treat our huge population of illegal aliens as a core constituency. One would
be a fool not to draw the logical inferences from that.
Senator Suggests Russia To Blame For DREAMers Protesting Pelosi. Democratic New Hampshire Sen. Jeanne
Shaheen suggested Tuesday morning that Russia is to blame for the illegal immigrant protesters who derailed House Minority
Leader Nancy Pelosi's community event on Monday [9/18/2017]. Video from the protest shows the crowd of pro-amnesty
activists surrounding Pelosi and shouting her down, while accusing her of being insufficiently pro-immigrant. When
asked why the activists were targeting Pelosi, who has been working with President Trump to try to strike a deal on DACA,
Shaheen struggled to give an answer.
Watch out, Nancy! Your base is crumbling.
a Liar:' So-Called 'Dreamers' Angrily Shout Down Pelosi Over DACA Negotiations With Trump. If they want to get
deported, keep acting like this: [Video clip]
call Pelosi a 'liar'. Immigrant-rights protesters on Monday [9/18/2017] disrupted a San Francisco news
conference at which House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi had planned to promote the DREAM Act. Pelosi and fellow
Democratic California Reps. Barbara Lee and Jared Huffman were scheduled to speak about the legislation, which would
provide a path to legal status to people approved for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and other
undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. at a young age. Instead, dozens of young people took over the event and
called Pelosi "a liar" for saying she has fought against deportations.
Aliens Crash Nancy Pelosi's DACA Press Conference. A group of illegal aliens calling themselves the
"Immigration Liberation Movement" crashed a press conference by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Monday
[9/18/2017], warning the Democratic Party not to "sell [us] out." The group shouted down Rep. Pelosi, who struggled
to maintain control of the meeting, and unfurled a large banner calling for all illegal aliens to be legalized.
Democrats [are] growing tired of Nancy Pelosi. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who won an eighth term
leading the Democratic caucus last fall, should be replaced regardless of whether her party regains control of Congress'
lower chamber in next year's elections, according to a new poll. The statewide survey of California Democrats by UC
Berkeley's Institute of Governmental Studies found only 30 percent believe House Democrats should choose Pelosi to stay on as
their leader should they win back the House of Representatives in 2018. Some 44 percent prefer somebody else taking over,
while the remainder have no opinion.
Reporter: Pelosi Will Impeach Trump If Democrats Take Back The House. NYT Reporter Jeremy Peters warned
President Trump on MSNBC Thursday [9/14/2017] that his "new best friend," House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, will move to
impeach him if she ever gains control of the House. The comment after after Pelosi released a statement announcing that
Trump "agreed to enshrine the protections of DACA into law," and also follows POTUS making a deal with Democrats to raise the
Pelosi Is Getting So Weird — Like, Creepy Weird. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has been getting
weirder and weirder. She's praised illegal aliens on the Capitol's lawn, saying, "You make America more American" (Um,
they, by definition, don't). She's said the Constitution does not grant people the right to shout "wolf" in a theater (it
probably does, but you can't yell "fire"). And she's complained that President Trump visited Saudi Arabia first, saying "It
wasn't even alphabetical. I mean, Saudi Arabia!" (Nancy thinks he should have hit Afghanistan, then Albania, Algeria,
Andorra, Angola, etc.) The list goes on and on. At 77, Pelosi misspeaks all the time — and just generally
acts weird to boot.
Pelosi Has a Jeb Please Clap Moment. Nancy Pelosi is losing it. It's painful to watch, yet somehow
gratifying if you hate her as much as I do. Seems Nancy Pelosi couldn't even pronounce simple words and even had a few
Jeb Bush "please clap" moments. Nancy Pelosi is getting almost Sergio Dipp pathetic these days.
Wrong With Nancy? Orders LGBT group to clap for Obama, laments 'bulleting' of youth. What is wrong with
Nancy Pelosi? That question is coming up again as the House Minority Leader was seen on Saturday [9/9/2017] repeatedly
telling the GLAAD audience to clap and botching simple words. [Video clip]
Now that it is politically expedient to do so...
Condemns Antifa: 'Our Democracy Has No Room for Inciting Violence'. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D.,
Calif.) denounced the radical leftist group "Antifa" and its violence in Berkeley, Calif. over the weekend. The
black-clad, masked, so-called "anti-fascists" attacked and assaulted members of a peaceful right-wing protest in
Berkeley. The famed college town has seen other far-left violence this year in response to conservative speakers
appearing on campus. In a statement published to her official website, Pelosi said the "perpetrators should be
arrested and prosecuted."
Wolf in a Crowded Theater. This week former Speaker of the House California Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi said,
"The Constitution does not say that a person can yell wolf in a crowded theater." For the first time, she said something
with which I find no fault. I scoured the Constitution and there's not a word about crying wolf in it. On the other
hand, it does give primacy to the right of free speech.
Very Confused: You 'Can't Shout Wolf in a Crowded Theater'. Nancy Pelosi has been very confused this
year. She keeps calling President Trump "President Bush" and continues to struggle with her vocabulary. The
latest example happened in an interview with KRON when she "mixed her metaphors," as The Washington Free Beacon reported,
when talking about what the First Amendment does and doesn't cover when it comes to free speech. "The Constitution does
not say that a person can shout — yell wolf in a crowded theater," Pelosi said, stumbling. "If you are
endangering people, then you don't have a constitutional right to do that."
clueless Nancy Pelosi doesn't seem to understand about free speech. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi
(D-Calif.), is perhaps the most powerful representative the Democrats have. When she speaks, it means something.
And what she's been speaking about lately is that others shouldn't be speaking at all. That's frightening. One
might expect extremists in her party to have trouble with the First Amendment, but it's alarming that the top Democrat in the
House jumps on the bandwagon. Is this how most Democrats feel? The National Park Service recently announced that
a right-wing rally by the group Patriot Prayer can go forward Saturday at federally owned Crissy Field in San Francisco, near
the Golden Gate Bridge. Pelosi calls members of the group white supremacists (though they say they support peace, love
and unity). While the group is controversial, the right of its members to speak shouldn't be.
Pelosi's father helped dedicate Confederate monument. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has ramped up calls to
remove "reprehensible" Confederate statues from the halls of Congress — but left unsaid in her public
denunciations is that her father helped dedicate such a statue decades ago while mayor of Baltimore. It was May 2,
1948, when, according to a Baltimore Sun article from that day, "3,000" looked on as then-Governor William Preston Lane Jr.
and Pelosi's father, the late Thomas D'Alesandro Jr., spoke at the dedication of a monument to honor Confederate generals
Robert E. Lee and Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson.
Pelosi's Father Dedicated Confederate Statues to Robert E. Lee & 'Stonewall' Jackson. In recent days, House Minority
Leader Nancy Pelosi has publicly supported the removal of Confederate statues around the U.S. As it turns out, the Pelosi family
wasn't always against the statues. On Monday, Ron Meyer of Red Alert Politics dropped a little truth bomb on Fox News
viewers, revealing Nancy Pelosi's father helped dedicate Confederate statues to Robert E. Lee and 'Stonewall' Jackson.
of Democrats Said to Refuse Support of Pelosi as Leader in 2018. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's (D-CA)
leadership could be in real trouble with nearly 30 Democratic members and 2018 candidates now saying they will either not
support Pelosi as leader of Democratic caucus if elected or declining to comment on the matter. Incumbent Reps.
Tim Ryan (D-OH), Seth Moulton (D-MA), Ruben Gallego (D-AZ), Kathleen Rice (D-NY), and Filemon Vega (D-TX) have all come out
saying that Pelosi needs to go.
People who live in glass houses should not throw stones.
Calls for Resolution to Censure Trump for His 'Repulsiveness'. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi issued a statement today [8/18/2017]
declaring her support for the Congress to pass a resolution censuring President Donald Trump for "the repulsiveness" of his "words and
actions." "Every day, the president gives us further evidence of why such a censure is necessary," said Pelosi. The censure
resolution was introduced in the House of Representatives today by Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D.-N.Y.), Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman
(D.-N.J.) and Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D.-Wash.). The resolution immediately gathered 77 co-sponsors, all of whom are Democrats.
Confederate Statues Are 'Reprehensible' Why Didn't Nancy Pelosi Remove Them When She Had the Power as Speaker?
Last week House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi demanded Speaker Paul Ryan remove all confederate statues from the U.S.
Capitol. In a statement, Pelosi said the statues have "always been reprehensible" and insisted they be taken down,
despite the Capitol acting as a museum for all kinds of American history. [...] "There is no room for celebrating the violent
bigotry of the men of the Confederacy in the hallowed halls of the United States Capitol or in places of honor across the
country." But if these statues truly are "reprehensible," why didn't Pelosi have them completely removed when she had
the power to do so as Speaker of the House?
Calls on Paul Ryan to Immediately Remove 'Confederate Statues' from Capitol. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi
(D.-Calif.) today [8/17/2017] called on House Speaker Paul Ryan (R.-Wisc.) to immediately remove "Confederate statues" from the U.S.
Capitol. "If Republicans are serious about rejecting white supremacy, I call upon Speaker Ryan to join Democrats to
remove the Confederate statues from the Capitol immediately," Pelosi said in a statement. "There is no room for
celebrating the violent bigotry of the men of the Confederacy in the hallowed halls of the United States Capitol or in
places of honor across the country," Pelosi said.
media and madness. [Scroll down] This is part of a new obsession by the Democratic Party with removing
Confederate statues and monuments that have been around for close to a century or more. [...] House Democratic Leader Nancy
Pelosi, who talks as though she is a first-term representative from California, recently said: "The Confederate statues
in the halls of Congress have always been reprehensible." Yet they were somehow tolerable from the years 2007 to 2011
when she was speaker of the House and Dems had a supermajority in Congress.
Are Starting To See Nancy Pelosi as A Cancer. Are the sharks circling House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)
again? No, she's fine. She'll win re-election. She'll remain leader of the House Democrats, but that
doesn't mean that those party members trying to flip seats to retake the House are starting to view her as a problem.

leader of the House Democratic Caucus. Of the rest, 18 declined to say if Pelosi should keep her job, while one, a
political newcomer from a culturally conservative Ohio district, said he would vote for someone other than Pelosi.
Gets Declaration Of Independence History Wrong. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi tried to be patriotic but
read a false account of the 56 Declaration of Independence signers during her Tuesday [7/18/2017] press conference.
Pelosi read "The Price They Paid," an article about the 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence, at a Democrat event
to promote a legislative package aimed at reforming government. [...] However, as pointed out by Snopes, "The Price They Paid"
is riddled with inaccuracies and embellishments about what actually happened to the signers.
Pelosi Can't Stop Giggling About Aggression from North Korea. Pelosi was fielding questions from reporters during her
weekly press conference, and as she finished an answer about arts funding... she giggled. A reporter then said, "Kim Jung In
has been celebrating their ICBM launch with some cultural" events... Pelosi laughed strangely. Pelosi stopped giggling and
gathered her composure as the reporter continued[,] she then sighed loudly into the microphone. As the reporter finished asking
his question about whether Pelosi thinks the administration will be able to protect the West Coast from an attack, she bizarrely said
she's "one of the few members of Congress to have visited Pyongyang." What is wrong with this woman?
Pelosi calls Trump 'President Bush' for fifth time. Never mind President Trump has been in office for six
months — Nancy Pelosi still thinks George W. Bush is president. During an interview with KTVU, Pelosi
once again referred to Trump as "President Bush."
An inadvertent comedy act:
Says: Schumer and I Are 'The Voices for Winning' Back Congress in 2018. In an interview with KTVU, Nancy Pelosi is either
having one of her senior moments in which she refers to voices without providing much clarity on whether these are voices of real people or
if they're the kind that should be medicated away, or she's looking for an odd excuse to ignore her unpopularity, even with her own party.
As we reported just a few weeks ago, 41% of Democrats want Pelosi to stay, while a full 27% of them want her to retire, with only 16% of
Democrats holding a "very favorable" view of Pelosi with 12% holding a "very unfavorable" view of her.
Pelosi appears dazed —
stops speaking, stares at audience. As Nancy Pelosi struggles to beat back an insurgency by her House Democratic colleagues over a string of election
losses, there are new questions over her health after she suffered multiple brain freezes during a recent appearance in New York City. During a Sunday event
at the 92nd Street Y, Pelosi would awkwardly stop mid-sentence repeatedly, stare at the audience, and then continue speaking. [Video clip]
Pelosi Makes Russia Accusation, Struggles to Put Together Coherent Sentences. Nancy Pelosi appears to be losing
it. Thursday, in a press conference, she did not seem to be able to string together a coherent thought, let alone a
logical presentation. She rambled all over the place with what sounded like random unconnected ideas, accusations and
theories. She was purportedly there to level some of the usual accusations at Trump, regarding his nonexistent collusion
with Russia. What came out instead was a strange mix of confusion, forgetfulness and plain old vindictiveness.
Plot Against Pelosi. Democratic Representative Kathleen Rice is tired of her party [losing]. "Since 2010,
we've been losing, losing, losing, losing. There are big issues that we need to address for the country, and we're not
even at the table — which is a problem!" As Rice sees it, Democrats need to come up with a new message, a
fresh brand, an easy-to-explain economic plan that resonates with the masses. But for that to happen, she says, the
caucus first must do some housecleaning. Specifically, Nancy Pelosi has got to go. "We have a failure of leadership
at the top," says Rice. And until that leadership changes, she tells me, "I don't think we can move forward."
to put Pelosi out to pasture. This world is far different from when she entered the House, and she has lost all
semblance of contact with the common man. In 2010 she said, and we quote: "We have to pass the [Obamacare] bill
so that you can find out what's in it." That's like saying we need to let the mechanic do his work before he tells us
how much it's all going to cost. You'd be hard-pressed to find a dumber statement in the 21st century.
Passing of the Pelosi Era. The Pelosi factor has been a drag on Democrats in all four of the special elections
the party has lost since Trump's November triumph. Prediction: Democrats will not go into the 2018 Congressional
elections with San Fran Nan as the party's face and future. No way. As President Kennedy said, "Sometimes
party loyalty asks too much."
Pity Pelosi and Her
Increasing Pain. [Scroll down] Little Nancy was the only daughter among the six children of Thomas "Big
Tommy" D'Alesandro Jr., legendary and long-time mayor of Baltimore. When Nancy reached the age of political maturity,
which in Baltimore is 8 years old, her father appointed her to take the phone calls of favor-seekers. "Oh," Little
Nancy would say, "You want a construction permit to build inside Druid Hill Park? OK, here's what you have to do for
us." And Little Nancy was good at it. She grew up to become the fundraising superstar of the Democratic Party.
Little Nancy's brother was a member of the House of Representatives and later also mayor of Baltimore. She never knew
an un-powerful moment in her life.
Resistance Mobilizes Against... Nancy Pelosi. For a party that constantly makes sanctimonious charges against
Republicans for being stuck in the past, it sure doesn't sound like the Democrats' current leadership is open to
change — or input from anyone under the age of 65 who hasn't been in power for decades.
Have No Alternative to Nancy Pelosi. Frustrated Democrats who want to replace House Minority Leader Nancy
Pelosi have an urgent problem: there is no alternative. After leading the House Democrats for 15 years, the San
Francisco stalwart has total control of her caucus and is a massive fundraising force that her party cannot easily
replace. And as the first female Speaker of the House (2007-2011), she has unique status and an array of female
supporters, both inside and outside Congress.
Pelosi, the Face of the Sinking Democratic Brand. A lack of self-confidence is not one of House minority leader
Nancy Pelosi's problems. But Pelosi's unabashed use of open threats and her death grip on power are a very big problem
for her party. Pelosi's performance at her press conference on Thursday [6/22/2017] was epic in its demonstration of
both her enormous self-regard and her complete confidence that nothing and no one will remove her from her powerful
perch. While no one really expected that comments from a few stray dissident members of the House caucus would cause
her to resign, her contempt for those critics and her willingness to threaten them publicly takes your breath away.
real problem is that Nancy Pelosi is their true face. Furious at their loss in yet another Trump-era special
election, Democrats are calling for the head of ... House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. It's understandable:
Republican ads in Georgia painted the Democrat, Jon Ossoff, as sure to be a Pelosi pawn — a charge that has scored
for the GOP in race after race over the last decade. New York's own Rep. Kathleen Rice (D-Nassau) is far from
alone in saying, "It's time for Nancy Pelosi to go, and the entire leadership team."
Won't Say Aborting Baby With Beating Heart 'Dishonors God'. Three weeks ago, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi
(D-Calif.) said it dishonors God to pull out of the Paris Accord on climate change, but today she did not say it dishonors
God to abort a baby with a beating heart. At Pelosi's press briefing on Thursday [6/22/2017], CNSNews.com asked Pelosi
if her understanding of what dishonors God extends to aborting a baby with a beating heart as well as pulling out of the
faces growing doubts among Dems after Georgia loss. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and other top Democrats
put a brave face on Wednesday morning [6/21/2017] after a disappointing loss in the Georgia special election, yet there is no
disguising the unhappiness in the party ranks. There is no challenge to Pelosi's leadership, and none is going to
happen at this point, said numerous Democrats. But it's clear frustration is growing with the longtime Democratic
leader following the extensive losses Democrats have suffered over the past half-decade.
think I'm worth the trouble' says Pelosi. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi defended her position atop the
party, as a number of caucus members have suggested it might be time for a fresh face. 'I think I'm worth the trouble,'
she told reporters Thursday [6/22/2017]. 'I feel very confident in the support I have in the caucus,' Pelosi also
said. The calls for Pelosi to vacate her top spot came after Tuesday's election loss in Georgia with Democrat Jon
Ossoff being routed by Republican Karen Handel.
says she's staying: 'I think I'm worth the trouble'. Defiant House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Thursday
that she's not going anywhere, brushing back complaints from rank-and-file Democrats that she has led them to political
oblivion and insisting that whatever the election losses she has overseen, she is "worth the trouble." A series of
losses in special congressional elections — including one that cost the party tens of millions of dollars in
donations in a losing cause in Georgia this week — have sparked a new round of criticism for the Californian.
Talk Openly About Challenging Nancy Pelosi's Leadership. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is facing
unprecedented pressure, as frustrated Democrats have begun — for the first time in seven years — to
talk about replacing her after a series of disappointments at the ballot box. Pelosi was hailed as a driving force
behind Democrats' victory in 2006, when the party seized both houses of Congress and set the stage for victory in the 2008
presidential election. She became the first female Speaker of the House, and set about centralizing power in the
Speaker's office, ruling her caucus with unquestioned authority and promoting an unapologetically liberal agenda.
Up, Democrats. Ossoff Didn't Lose This Race — Pelosi Did. In the end, the high-profile special
election in Georgia's 6th District was a referendum on Nancy Pelosi, not Donald Trump. The numbers bear this out.
According to The Washington Post's James Hohman, "Pelosi was a huge drag on Jon Ossoff. Internal GOP polling showed she
had 98 percent name ID, was 35 points underwater." There's also this: Ossoff backed off Trump (for fear of
offending Republicans he would presumably need), while Republicans were 100 percent committed to linking Ossoff to Pelosi.
turned to Nancy Pelosi to win in Georgia. Voters in the traditionally conservative seat had resisted President
Trump and were slow to embrace Republican nominee Karen Handel in the special election to replace Tom Price, now Health and
Human Services secretary. But Congressional Leadership Fund rediscovered a familiar antidote to Trump's drag and
Handel's standoffishness in its internal polling: Pelosi, the House minority leader from California, who would once
again become speaker in a Democratic takeover.
'Outrageous' for Republicans to blame Democrats for heated rhetoric. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi
expressed outrage at her Republican colleagues Thursday for implying that Wednesday's shooting could make for good campaign
ads in 2018.
After Questioning Trump's Mental Health, Pelosi Has Senior Moment(s). Shortly after calling into question President
Trump's mental health on MSNBC's 'Morning Joe,' House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's own mental health came under scrutiny, as the
77-year-old California congresswoman referred to President Trump as "President Bush" and forgot what day of the week it is.
A reporter quickly helped her correct the gaffe, interjecting "Trump," but Pelosi appeared oblivious she slipped up.
Pelosi finds nap-tastic NEW reason to question Trump's 'fitness for office'. Rep. Adam Schiff is among
Dems who have been forced to downshift on the Trump/Russia rhetoric, and Nancy Pelosi is joining him by returning to the
Dems' default position on Trump, which is to question his overall fitness for office, with a new twist. Pelosi's now
saying Trump might not be fit to lead because he doesn't get enough sleep:
Isn't that his decision to make?
investigating why Trump visited Saudi Arabia on first foreign trip. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said
Friday she finds it "strange" that President Trump decided to make Saudi Arabia his first foreign trip, adding that she was
looking into it. "I just think it was a very strange choice to go there," Mrs. Pelosi, California Democrat, said
on MSNBC. "Especially in light of having served on the committee that investigated 9/11, and knowing the suspicions that
exist in our country, and among his people."
After Losses, Democrats Struggle
to 'Un-Pelosi' the Party. Frustrated with the leadership in their party, some heartland Democrats are looking to decouple themselves
from Nancy Pelosi and the other coastal elites calling the shots. The People's House Project, a super PAC founded by former MSNBC host Krystal
Ball, aims to recruit candidates and raise money in a structure separate from national Democrats. The reason? Democrats have veered
too far to the left and chosen a message that's toxic in much of the United States.
says Trump 'dishonoring' God in global warming decision. Rep. Nancy Pelosi said Thursday [6/1/2017] that President
Trump was "dishonoring" God and questioned whether his grandchildren will even be able to breathe air after his announcement a day
earlier that he would withdraw from the Paris climate accord. "How is he ever going to explain to his grandchildren what he
did to the air they breathe — assuming they breathe air," she said at her weekly press conference. She compared
the president to racist segregationists during the civil rights movement, said Mr. Trump's decision was yet another reason he
needed to release his tax returns, and said the U.S. has isolated itself from the world, joining just Syria in rejecting the Paris
agreement as too onerous.
The Editor says...
It is somewhat disturbing that one of the country's most rabid supporters of abortion, for any reason and at any stage of pregnancy,
has the temerity to accuse someone else of dishonoring God. But in this case, Ms. Pelosi is attempting to make a connection
where none exists. The concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere could double, and you'd probably never notice, except
that your lawn would be greener. The Paris agreement has nothing to do with air pollution. Nancy Pelosi apparently hopes
you don't think for yourself.
religion — justification by climate faith alone. Listen closely to the cant and jargon of modern
environmentalism, and in the empty invocations of "science," you are witnessing the rites of a religious faith. If the
screams after President Trump withdrew the U.S. from the Paris climate agreement seemed overwrought, it's because Trump
hadn't merely adopted a policy the other side disagreed with; he'd committed a secular, liberal, sacrilege. Take CNN's
Fareed Zakaria, who said, "This will be the day that the United States resigned as the leader of the free world." He then
listed what he regarded as the benefits of Paris, without addressing why it had anything to do with American leadership.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said Trump supports a "dirty-energy agenda" that is a "grave threat to our planet."
The Editor says...
There is no such thing as dirty energy. Dirt does not stick to energy. Only the most poorly-educated public school
students would put any stock in a castigatory comment about "dirty energy." Nancy Pelosi apparently hopes you don't engage in
any rational thought at all.
'It's Hard' to Say 'President Trump,' He Has No Respect For the Job. Tuesday at a discussion hosted by the
Commonwealth Club, Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said that it was "hard" for her to say the words "President
Trump." When Pelosi referenced "the new president of the United States," the moderator said, "I noticed you don't say
'The Holy Month of Ramadan is a Sacred Time for Peaceful Study'. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) released a statement
on Friday [5/26/2017] in observance of "the Holy Month of Ramadan." "Ramadan reminds us of the rich diversity of our nation, and of the many
contributions that Muslims have made to our country as public servants, members of our Armed Services, scholars, artists, athletes and engaged
citizens," Pelosi said.
Liberals Only Voted for 2011 Defense Spending Bill so They Could Repeal 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell'. House Minority
Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) spoke Friday at an LGBT rights event at the Pride Center at Equality Park of South Florida,
where she touted how liberals in the Democratic Party only voted for the nation's defense spending bill for fiscal year 2011
so they could repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." "Don't tell anybody I told you this," Pelosi said, before explaining how
she was able to get liberal Democrats onboard to support the National Defense Authorization Act, or NDAA, the annual federal
law that specifies the Defense Department's budget and expenditures.
Democrats probably think this is air-tight logic:
Complains Trump's Trip 'Wasn't Even Alphabetical'. On Thursday [5/25/2017], House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi
(D-Calif.) questioned President Donald Trump's failure to visit countries in alphabetical order. Asked at a press conference to
comment on Trump's trip abroad, Pelosi expressed concern that Trump didn't start with Canada (with the letter "C") like previous
presidents: "I thought it was unusual for the President of the United States to go to Saudi Arabia first. Saudi Arabia?"
Pelosi said. "It wasn't even alphabetical. I mean, Saudi Arabia."
Accidentally Refers to NRA as Part of Intelligence Community. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.)
appeared to confuse the National Rifle Association with the National Security Agency during remarks Tuesday at the Peter G.
Peterson Foundation's 2017 Fiscal Summit. While being interviewed by CNN's Dana Bash, Pelosi discussed the ongoing
investigation into whether there was collusion between Donald Trump's campaign and the Russians, and whether he may have
obstructed justice, according to NTK Network.
Pelosi Gets Completely Destroyed By Questioner In CNN Town Hall. Rep. Nancy Pelosi took her dazed and
confused act to prime-time TV on Monday night [5/15/2017], joining CNN's Chris Cuomo for a town hall. She did her same
old tired schtick, but the highlight of the night was when Jake Lee, a small business owner from West Hollywood, Calif.,
stood up to ask a question. "Good evening, madam leader. Before the election on November 8, your side of the
aisle were asking for the former head of the FBI to resign," said Lee. "Now that he has been let go, why the sudden and
selective outrage from your side of the aisle?" Pelosi is immediately befuddled.
Nancy Pelosi meant to say here, we got this acid trip-sounding thing instead. Say, isn't one of the problems
with having Donald Trump as president that he supposedly utters incomprehensible blather about things he knows nothing
about? Isn't the issue that a man in such a high position of authority, speaking with such a combination of ignorance
and inarticulation, could cause a huge misunderstanding or, worse, start an international incident? Just checking,
because didn't Democrats make Nancy Pelosi Speaker of the House at one time? And don't they continue to vote for her
even now for that very position, even though they're in the minority and can't actually elect her to it? [Video clip]
The Boss — The Disturbing Truth About Nancy Pelosi. This is a riveting expose on one the most power
hungry, brutal female politicians of all time and as you will see after reading the book, it runs in her family. The
Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, is no retiring, kind and meek grandmother. She is made of Baltimore steel and she
has been forged in the boiling corrupt vat of politics in a never-ending quest for power and status that she feels is her
birthright. Pelosi came from a family that bears a striking resemblance to organized crime. She will ruthlessly
use and discard any one in her way or who will forward her agenda. She rules the House with an iron grip and she is
simultaneously feared and hated by most politicians.
Pelosi The Poster Girl For Term Limits? Pelosi has been in office since 1987 — after
inheriting the seat from her predecessor, Sala Burton, who had it bequeathed to her by her husband, Phillip Burton.
Phillip Burton had been elected to Congress in a special election in February 1964 and held California's 6th Congressional
District seat for 10 consecutive elections until his death in 1983. His wife, Sala Burton replaced him. When Sala
became ill with cancer in 1986, she decided to not run for reelection but instead put her support behind her friend, 46-year
old Nancy Pelosi. Pelosi won the seat in a special election after Sala's death and hasn't had any real opposition
since. She hasn't even participated in a candidates' debate since that first election in 1987.
Trump Budget Is Systemic Deconstruction of the Federal Government and Its Role'. "This budget is really a slap in the face of the
future," House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said on Thursday [3/16/2017], after President Donald Trump released his Fiscal Year 2018 budget
blueprint to "make America great again." Pelosi said the budget — which boosts defense, homeland security, veterans affairs
and school choice at the expense of the EPA, State Department, and other programs — fails as a statement of values, but it
succeeds as a "deconstruction" of the federal government.
NOW she tells us.
I would have retired if Clinton had defeated Trump. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi revealed Friday that she
was ready to retire from Congress if former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had won the November election over President
Trump. Pelosi told reporters following a discussion at a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor that if
Clinton had won the White House, she "was ready to go home" after 14 years as House Democratic leader and four years
as speaker of the House.
Alert: Pelosi Now Interested In Knowing What's in a Bill Before It's Passed. Tone deaf and completely
without self-awareness or irony, Nancy Pelosi actually asserted that the American people have a right to know what's in the
GOP health care (insurance) bill before it passes.
Pelosi: American People Have Right to Know What's in Healthcare Bill Before It Passes. A sharp contrast
to "pass it to see what's in it."
Quoting from Nancy Pelosi's web page:
Pelosi Sends Letter to Speaker Ryan
Calling for Release of Full Impact of GOP ACA Repeal Bill Before Committees Vote. ["]The American people and
Members have a right to know the full impact of this legislation before any vote in Committee or by the whole House.["]
Obamacare Drafting Process 'One of the Most Transparent in Recent Memory'. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi
(D., Calif.) tweeted on Tuesday [3/7/2017] that the drafting process for the Affordable Care Act was "one of the most transparent
in recent memory." Pelosi defended the health care law the day after House Republicans unveiled their Obamacare replacement
plan on Monday night. Some lawmakers, including Sen. Rand Paul (R., Ky.), criticized House Republican leaders for drawing up
the bill in a secret fashion. The House's top Democrat built on this criticism and took to Twitter on Tuesday to argue the
Affordable Care Act was crafted in a transparent manner. She cited the number of hearings and meetings that were held before
Obamacare was passed.
Trump demands an 'investigation' of Pelosi for 'lying' after photo reveals she met the Russian ambassador too — after saying
she hadn't hours before. President Donald Trump forcefully went after both prongs of the Democratic congressional
leadership, demanding investigations of both congressional Demoratic leaders after photos purported to show their own Russia
ties. It wasn't immediately clear if the president was serious in his call for an investigation of his rivals. At
the moment, it is his administration's own contacts with Russia, and Russia's alleged election hacking, that is the subject of
investigations by the FBI and the House and Senate intelligence committees.
Pelosi: 'Very proud' of the 'dignity' Democrats showed during Trump's speech. House Minority Leader Nancy
Pelosi said Wednesday she's "very proud" that her members managed to sit through President Trump's hourlong speech to
Congress Tuesday night with "dignity." "I was very proud of the dignity with which our members listened to his speech,"
Mrs. Pelosi said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe." "It was clearly a bait-and-switch speech." She said one unnamed member
had said at one caucus meeting: "Look, if you can't curb your enthusiasm there tonight, don't go. And I'm not going."
Ms. Pelosi, Attorney General Sessions did not commit perjury. Napoleon Bonaparte once said, "from the
sublime to the ridiculous is but a step." There is nothing sublime about Nancy Pelosi. Ridiculous, however, is an
apt description. At a news conference Thursday [3/2/2017], the former Speaker of the House denounced Attorney General Jeff
Sessions as a liar, pronounced him guilty of perjury, and demanded his resignation. This comes just days after she
erroneously accused the Trump White House of obstructing justice. Clearly, she's on a tear. Who knew the
democratic leader, who is not a lawyer, was such an expert on the law?
Hits Ivanka Trump For Possibly Not Keeping Kosher; Is Fine With Catholic Nancy Pelosi Promoting Abortion. First
Daughter Ivanka Trump and her family are quite possibly the highest-profile Modern Orthodox Jews in American history.
Ivanka, who converted in 2009, has spoken about how her family observes the Sabbath, keeps kosher, and celebrates various
Jewish holidays together. And now, for some reason, the media has taken it upon itself to become the "kosher police."
Take, for instance, this gem from the Washingtonian, where the writer took the mind-boggling step of phoning a chef to
inquire about what Ivanka and her husband ordered for dinner. [...]
Pelosi refuses to applaud American job creation. During his Address to Congress [2/28/2017], Trump ran down a
list of companies that have announced investments and job additions in the last several weeks. "Since my election,
Ford, Fiat Chrysler, Generall Motors, Spring, Sofbank, Lockheed, Intel, Walmart and many others have announced that they will
invest billions and billions of dollars in the United States and create tens of thousands of new American jobs," Trump
said. As many stood to applaud, Pelosi remained seated with a sour look on her face.
Why Yes — We're Looking At Ways To Impeach Trump. Yesterday [2/27/2017], House Minority Leader Nancy
Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) held a prebuttal conference in the First Amendment Lounge of
the National Press Club. At the presser, Pelosi was asked about impeaching Donald Trump, which is something that the
progressive base of the Democratic Party is clamoring for Congress to do. With a solid Republican majority, that's not
going to happen.
Pelosi: Amend the First
Amendment. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Thursday endorsed a movement announced by other congressional
Democrats on Wednesday [2/22/2017] to ratify an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would allow Congress to regulate
political speech when it is engaged in by corporations as opposed to individuals.
'Pelosi showing signs of mental breakdown. Has Trump Derangement Syndrome affected the ability of Nancy Pelosi to perform normal life functions (for a politician)? Or is
age finally taking its toll on her?
Yes, 75 Percent Of Illegal Immigrants We Arrested Have Criminal Records. Over the past couple of days,
immigration enforcement agents have round up almost 700 illegal aliens — 75 percent of which had criminal
records. Rep. Nancy Pelosi disputed the claim, but Immigration and Customs Enforcement also confirmed the figure
released by the Department of Homeland Security.
Nancy Pelosi Stands Up for "Our Values" Defending a Self-Confessed Gangbanger. Democrat dingbat Nancy Pelosi
once again demonstrated some very sketchy Democrat values. She is characterizing an ICE action as against "our values".
ICE took a gangbanger into custody. She left that out when she made her statements in his defense. "In another
assault on our values in the past week we had witnessed ICE raids across our nation targeting parents, students and a
DACA-protected DREAMer. We talked about some of this yesterday with their members," the dingbat said. But Nancy
is advocating breaking up the family! The criminal father is being deported.
Trump already lagging behind Obama. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi tore into President Trump Friday by
arguing that his nascent administration has no accomplishments compared to his predecessor. Pelosi noted Friday on the
same day in 2009, former President Barack Obama had already signed into law his $800 billion economic stimulus bill. "A
jobs bill in the first four weeks passed and signed by the president today eight years ago," she said during the Families USA
Health Action Conference in Washington. "Imagine in four weeks what this president has done and here we are. There's
no jobs bill, there's no infrastructure bill."
The Editor says...
Nobody expects Trump to keep up with the pace of Obama's extravagant spending. (What did the $800 billion stimulus bill accomplish, anyway?)
The Republicans aren't in any hurry to accomplish the Democrats' goals, and Ms. Pelosi should be delighted if he doesn't accomplish anything at all.
In any case, President Trump could get a lot more done if he didn't have to face constant resistance and friction from people like Nancy Pelosi. Besides all
that, the moment Mr. Trump completes any task, the Democrats will denounce it as harmful, hateful or un-American. And let's face it — Obama
got what he wanted right away because he was a sacred cow. So yes, this will take a while.
to the Future with Nancy Pelosi. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has served in Congress a long time.
She has served long enough to oppose Republican presidents going back to Ronald Reagan. In the modern era she has
missed only Presidents Eisenhower and Nixon, but she opposed them too! Make no mistake about that. She has served
in Congress long enough to oppose both Presidents Bush, father and son, over a period of twelve years. It therefore
makes perfect sense that in a press conference yesterday she confused her current opposition to President Trump with her
opposition to the Presidents Bush in ages past.
Useful Idiots No More. "Tell him
you are a Muslim, tell him you are a Muslim," Nancy Pelosi instructed Congressman Andre Carson at an anti-Trump rally on
Monday, moments after she had just introduced him as a "Muslim member of Congress." She apparently felt that the crowd hadn't
sufficiently gotten the point. Pelosi normally rattles on about the dangers of "religion in politics," but on Monday night
[1/30/2017] she very much wanted religion in it — and not just any religion, but the most patriarchal of them.
To see feminists hawking Islam so feverishly is an amusing spectacle, especially since a day or so later Pelosi had recovered
her fear of religion in the public square and creeping Christian patriarchy.
loses in 2-1 vote upholding ban of embattled student artwork. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi made a
vigorous but ultimately futile argument on Friday to keep student artwork hanging near the Capitol that portrays police as
pigs, noting other politically themed paintings remain on the wall. The controversial painting was selected as part of
a student art competition in Rep. William Lacy Clay's district. The Missouri Democrat hung it in the Capitol, and
Republicans immediately demanded that it should be taken down. After the Architect of the Capitol agreed the painting
should be removed, Pelosi appealed the decision to the House Office Building Commission.
Gorsuch 'Against Employees' Rights, Clean Air, Clean Water, Food Safety' — Even Autistic Children.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), the star of a CNN town hall on Tuesday night, signaled her opposition to
President Trump's nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, calling the nomination "a very hostile appointment."
Hot Mic: 'Tell Them You're A Muslim'. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was caught on a hot mic at a protest
Monday night, cynically encouraging congressman Andre Carson of Indiana to remind the crowd he is a Muslim. "Greetings
from the great state of Indiana. I'm Congressman Andre Carson!" Carson said during Monday's rally. "Tell them
you're a Muslim," Pelosi can be heard saying. "Tell them you're a Muslim." [Video clip]
Pelosi Caught on HOT MIC Promoting Muslims. Muslim is the new "black," at least when it comes to minorities.
I warned of this confluence of race and religion in my book Sexy Brilliance and Other Political Lies. I predicted that Muslims
would learn the ways of black Leftists, then add the "secret sauce" of religion to ultimately get Leftists to allow Muslims to
dominate America. We know the radical Muslims have made this their strategy for quite some time. They brag that they
won't have to actually fight us with guns. They won't even have to do what Muslims enjoy most, which is to cut off the
heads of Infidels. No, Muslims simply nuzzle up to Leftists and let the caliphate begin.
Of Son Killed By Illegal to Pelosi: Which One Of Your Children Is Expendable For An Illegal Life? At a
CNN townhall Tuesday night [1/31/2017], Nancy Pelosi was asked by a sobbing mother who lost her son to an illegal immigrant,
who she said brutally tortured him before death, which one of her grandchildren she would give up to make room for an
illegal. "If you need to go home tonight and line up your babies as you say, and your grandbabies, which one of them
could you look in their eyes today, and tell them that they're expendable for another foreign person to have an a nicer
life? Which one would you look to say, you, my child, are expendable for someone else to come over here and not follow
the law and have a nicer life?" Laura Wilkerson, who said her son was "slaughtered" by an illegal immigrant, asked Pelosi.
Democrats Do 'the Lord's Work,' Republicans 'Dishonor God'. In yet another example of moral narcissism and the
liberal inability to understand conservative positions on faith, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi declared that her party,
the Democratic Party, does the will of God while Republicans dishonor their Creator. Of Republicans, the Democrat
congresswoman from California declared, "They pray in church on Sunday and they prey on people the rest of the week.
And while we're doing the Lord's work, ministering to the needs of God's creation, they are ignoring those needs which is to
dishonor the God who made them."

It's always refreshing to listen to a rabidly pro-abortion socialist preaching about matters of faith.
could issue blanket waivers to gut individual insurance mandate. President Donald Trump's day-one move to begin
eroding the Obamacare medical insurance law has been met with angry opposition from the House of Representatives' top
Democrat. Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who pushed the Affordable Care Act through Congress when she was Speaker of the
House, called Trump's largely symbolic executive order a sign of 'cut and run' cowardice. Trump inked a directive Friday [1/20/2017]
ordering federal agencies to weaken Obamacare's authority by taking every opportunity possible to limit its cost to consumers.
Pelosi blames Bush for $9 trillion
in debt added under Obama. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi blamed former President George W. Bush and the
Republicans on Friday [1/13/2017] for the more than $9 trillion that has been added to the national debt under President Obama's
watch. Pelosi argued that under Obama, the annual budget deficit, which contributes to the national debt, has been reduced
dramatically, and said that without Obama's work, the national debt would be even higher. She also mostly blamed Bush for
not paying for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Reaction to the article above:
Nancy Pelosi and the
Big Lie. Every word Nancy Pelosi utters is a lie, all conjunctions and articles included. President Bush
submitted a budget for fiscal year 2009, which included a projected deficit of a way-too-high $407.4 billion. However, the
Congress, then under control of the Democrats, with Mrs Pelosi serving as the Speaker of the House, declined to pass President Bush's
budget. Rather, after the end of FY 2008 on September 30, 2008, Congress funded the federal government through the
mechanisms of continuing resolutions, rather than normal budgeting and appropriations.

trying to undermine Trump legitimacy. House Speaker Paul Ryan stood stone-faced behind House Minority Leader
Nancy Pelosi as she addressed the new 115th Congress. Before handing him the gavel, she tossed a Molotov cocktail at
the GOP — saying our democracy cannot be "subverted by the dark operations of a foreign regime." Pelosi was
referring, of course, to reports that Russia had attempted to influence the American election in favor of Donald Trump, who
it is believed is friendlier to the Russian regime. Just days before U.S. intelligence agencies released findings to
that effect, she was surfing a wave of stories like one in the New York Times that bore the headline "Obama Strikes
Back at Russia for Election Hacking." This tapestry of vagueness has led to confusion about what exactly happened
during the election.
Pelosi: Obamacare Was 'Bipartisan' Legislation. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) now says the
process of passing Obamacare in 2010 was "bipartisan," and that only "tweaks" were made to the healthcare law using the
reconciliation budgetary process. Pelosi's comments come as Republicans and President-elect Donald Trump begin the
process of repealing President Barack Obama's signature legislation. Obamacare passed in the House on March 21,
2010 with no Republican votes in favor of it and 34 Democrats voting against it.
The Democrats thrive on fear:
on Ryan's Medicaid Plan: People 'Won't Be Able to Go to Their Own Doctor'. House Minority Leader Nancy
Pelosi (D-Calif.) said on Wednesday that House Speaker Paul Ryan's (R-Wisc.) proposal to cut Medicaid spending over time to
help balance the federal budget would prevent seniors from seeing the doctor of their choosing. "And I might add with
what they want to do to the Affordable Care Act and what they want to do in the Ryan budget to Medicaid — a
trillion dollars over 10 years taken out of Medicaid," Pelosi said. "Two thirds of that goes to long-term heath
care to our seniors." "They won't be able to go to their own doctor if you take this away," Pelosi said.
faction that kept Nancy Pelosi in power. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi last week survived a serious
challenge to her role as the top House Democrat largely because the caucus has in recent years shrunk to a group of mostly
liberal lawmakers. The more concentrated caucus of liberals remained loyal to Pelosi, who, as the congresswoman
representing San Francisco, is among the most left-leaning lawmakers in Congress and championed President Obama's liberal
agenda during the two years when Congress and the White House were in Democratic hands, from 2009-11.
At Liberals As They Lose Their Minds. The liberals are truly going nuts, and it's beautiful. They
recently resurrected Nancy Pelosi for another glorious term winnowing away the House Democrat caucus. Pretty soon it's
just going to be her and some guy representing Berkeley who they recruited while he was shouting "Workers of the world
unite!" at bored coeds on Telegraph Avenue. You know, if you want to reach out to the kind of hard-working,
salt-of-the-earth, normal Americans who voted for the black guy then allegedly refused to vote for the woman because they are
racist, you totally want an ancient, rich, snooty, San Francisco leftist and Botox after-picture like the Nanster.
'I Don't Think That People Want a New Direction'. Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), just elected to an eighth
term as House Democratic leader despite the defection of 63 fellow Democrats, was asked on Sunday what she tells Democrats
who want a new direction. "Well, I don't think that people want a new direction. Our values unify us," Pelosi
told CBS's "Face the Nation."
insanity. One-hundred and thirty-four House Democrats collectively lost their minds last week. That is
how many of Nancy Pelosi's colleagues it took to vote her back into power despite having lost her third consecutive chance at
winning back the majority from the Republicans. Her win over Youngstown Ohio Democrat Tim Ryan for Minority Leader
proved two-thirds of those House Democrats have more interest in someone who is a deep-pocket fundraiser than someone who
perhaps could have made the party more competitive in swing districts or more cohesive in their message to the voters.
Pelosi holds onto
leadership. House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Wednesday fended off a challenge to her long
leadership reign, defeating Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) in a closed-door vote prompted largely by Donald Trump's unlikely
ascension to the White House. Pelosi got 134 votes to Ryan's 63 — winning 68 percent of the votes
after declaring before the election that she had the support of two-thirds of the caucus.
firebreathing comments on Tim Ryan. Over at the Huffington Post, Jennifer Bendery interviewed Nancy Pelosi
about Tim Ryan's challenge for her leadership post. In case you were thinking it's a friendly contest, Pelosi wasted no
time pulling out the flamethrower. Pelosi called Ryan's charges that she's trying to increase her own power within the
caucus "almost pathetic." She also objected in strenuous terms to the idea that she is out of touch with the sort of white
working-class Democrats who just re-elected Ryan but also voted in large numbers for Donald Trump.
Have a Pelosi Problem. Barring some last-minute surge of support for Ohio congressman Tim Ryan, House Democrats
appear set to once again elect Nancy Pelosi as their leader this week. Considering the catastrophic collapse of the
House Democratic caucus over the last six years, it seems fair to ask: Why? Just how much worse could they do
with Ryan running the show? Even if Pelosi isn't single-handedly to blame for the failures that have happened on her
watch, it's hard to see how she could lead her troops back into the majority.
time for Democrats to give Nancy Pelosi her walking papers. Lots of questions are being asked by chastened
Democrats in the wake of Donald Trump's victory. Here's one they're not asking enough, however: Why does Nancy
Pelosi still have a job? After her pathetic nearly 14-year tenure as the most powerful Democrat in Congress, she's
poised to continue as House minority leader. It's a travesty. President Obama has overseen the Democrats' biggest
loss of House, Senate, gubernatorial and local seats in nearly 100 years. Yet Pelosi can't be held blameless:
Since she became speaker in 2007, Democrats are down 45 House seats.
moves to intimidate Democratic rivals as she tries to cling to power. Rep. Nancy Pelosi formally announced
Wednesday she is running to retain her spot as House minority leader and sent a warning shot to potential rivals by informing
her colleagues that she has already locked up "the support of more than two-thirds" of the Democratic caucus.
Mrs. Pelosi has led the caucus since 2003, but the results of the election last week convinced the caucus to delay a
scheduled vote this week on leadership posts until Nov. 30, with members saying they want more time to digest the shellacking
the party took. Democrats have lost 63 House seats during her tenure atop the Democratic party alongside President
Obama and Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada.
Future Uncertain as Dems Weigh Options. Faced with the unexpected task of rebuilding their party under a Donald
Trump presidency, Democrats are deliberating whether their path forward includes Nancy Pelosi at the helm of the House
caucus. Under significant pressure from frustrated rank-and-file members, Minority Leader Pelosi postponed leadership
elections until after the Thanksgiving holiday.
Pelosi's Congressional District Has Taken In Zero Syrian Refugees. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has been
a vocal backer of President Obama's (ultimately successful) plan to import a minimum of 10,000 Syrian refugees by the end of
the fiscal year, at one point accusing Republicans of "slamming the door on mothers and children." But with just days
remaining in the 2016 Fiscal Year, Pelosi's own district has yet to resettle a single Syrian refugee.
Clinton campaign's plea for Republican mercy. Nancy Pelosi, trying to choke back panic as the presidential race
tightens and concern grows over Hillary Clinton's obviously fragile health, has appealed to Paul Ryan's sense of gallantry. The
little lady needs a little help. She begs him not to "let" his party use anything damaging to the Democrats that turns up
in emails hacked from Democratic email servers. And no talk about Hillary's health either. "Defending our democracy," she
said in a letter to the speaker this week, "is more important than any advantage or disadvantage in this election." The only
thing more important than "the sanctity of our democratic process" are the election prospects of her party.
Nancy Pelosi says no need to worry if Hillary potentially let slip a few state secrets. Democratic House leader
Nancy Pelosi said during an interview on CBS's "This Morning" on Monday [9/5/2016] that voters should not be bothered that
then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, America's top foreign diplomat at the time, didn't know the letter "C" in her emails
marked confidential information. "I think they shouldn't be that concerned," the San Francisco Democrat said. So
what if a state secret slipped out here or there, there's plenty more where they came from... besides, Clinton was much too
busy to get mired down in details.
Clinton emails [are just] a technicality. Nancy Pelosi dismissed Hillary Clinton's growing email scandal as a series of
"technicalities" Monday [9/5/2016], brushing aside FBI and congressional investigations. The House minority leader said
voters shouldn't get "bogged down in some technicalities" and added, "it's really much ado about nothing, but too much ado."
Pelosi, on CBS' "This Morning," had been asked about an FBI report released last week, in which Clinton repeatedly said she
couldn't recall key details and events related to classified information procedures.
Pelosi Memo: Obama's Iraq Withdrawal Created Islamic State. An internal Democratic Party memo allegedly
hacked from Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)'s personal computer and posted by purported hacker Guccifer 2.0 seems to agree with Donald
Trump's sentiments that the policies of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama helped to create the Islamic State. "In short:
Our invasion created the atmosphere for a Jordanian to start a Muslim sectarian war, which ultimately created ISIS," states an
October 2, 2014 memo from Mike Ryan, policy director for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC).
Docs Show Dems Trying Hard To Cast Benghazi As A 'Conspiracy Theory'. New documents released from Democratic
Leader Nancy Pelosi's computer by purported hacker Guccifer 2.0, reveal democratic talking points to counter Republican
Benghazi attacks. The document casts the controversy surrounding Benghazi as "Legitimate outrage over the deaths of
American diplomats mixed with partisanship." The document also admits that then Ambassador to the United Nations Susan
Rice "gave incorrect information on television" in the immediate aftermath of the attack.
Sanger Award Recipient Nancy Pelosi on Zika: 'This is About Babies'. At a Capitol Hill press conference on Thursday [8/11/2016],
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said the Zika virus threat is "all about babies." "The Zika in the Southern part of our
country is in our country, and because it hasn't hit home in [a Republican's] district, doesn't mean that it isn't hitting home for the American
people," Pelosi said. "You know how I am about babies and this is about babies. I just can't understand it." As CNSNews.com
previously reported, in 2014, Pelosi was the recipient of Planned Parenthood Federation of America's annual award named for Margaret Sanger, a
documented eugenicist who founded what is now the nation's largest abortion provider.
the new work. The welfare/entitlement state of mind has spiraled out of control in America. No one is
lifting a finger of opposition. The cost of welfare is now well over $1 trillion a year. Food stamps are so
ubiquitous that they have replaced dollars as the new standard currency in many inner cities in America. Even in affluent
areas with upscale grocery stores, food stamp recipients fill their carts with everything from cakes to lobster. Liberals
love welfare. It was only a few years ago that Democratic House leader Nancy Pelosi opined that putting more people on
food stamps and unemployment insurance is one of the "best ways to stimulate the economy." Which is more astonishing?
That she believes this lunacy or that she would be dumb enough to say it out loud.
says Clinton struggles with white male vote because of 'guns, gays and God'. Donald Trump is beating Hillary
Clinton among white men because guns, gays, and God, according to former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. "I think that, so
many times, white — non-college-educated white males have voted Republican. They voted against their own
economic interests because of guns, because of gays, and because of God, the three G's, God being the woman's right to
choose," Pelosi told PBS's Judy Woodruff in an interview Wednesday [7/27/2016]. But, Pelosi contended, that's changing
because of Clinton's "economic agenda to create jobs, good-paying jobs, increasing paychecks." The opposition from white
males "is softening," she argued.
Pelosi: Hillary Clinton Struggles With White Men Because Of "Guns, Gays, And God". In an interview with

gleaming black SUV is attempting a left turn from Hunt onto southbound Main (not easy). Suddenly blue/red lights are
flashing from the windshield area of the SUV (like you would see in an official fire/police vehicle)," he continued. "I
said to my friends, I've never seen that before on a 'regular' vehicle and I'd think that's illegal and dangerous. They
agreed." That's when the large black SUV jolted across two lanes of traffic, lights flashing, to park in front of a
fire hydrant at the high end shoe boutique Footcandy. "A St. Helena police car happens to be going northbound and
pulls into the center lane and the officer starts shaking his arm and hollering at the driver of the SUV. While this
goes on a man exits the SUV assisting a woman from the vehicle. She dashes off to Footcandy while he waits by the SUV
in the red zone," Smith explained. The police officer then drove off without confronting the driver, he wrote.
Pelosi Thanks Press for Creating 'Echo Chamber' on Gun Control. During a press briefing on Thursday [6/23/2016], House Minority Leader
Nancy Pelosi openly thanked people in the news media for creating an "echo chamber" that provided extensive coverage of the Democrats' "sit-in" seeking
legislation to promote stricter gun control even though the Senate didn't approve a similar measure. "Thank you all," the California Democrat
said. "I never saw the gallery so full," she stated before noting that her staff "gave me six pages today. Six small-print, full pages
listing of newspapers around the country where the sit-in was on the front page. I thank you for that. Thank you all."
Pelosi: Federal government, not Steve Jobs, 'invented' iPhone. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told an
audience in Washington, D.C., on Thursday [6/9/2016] that Apple's iconic iPhone was "invented" by the federal government instead of
entrepreneur Steve Jobs. "Anybody here have a smartphone?" the California Democrat asked attendees at a hearing on the
Democratic National Convention platform. "In this smartphone, almost everything came from federal investments in
research. [...] They say Steve Jobs did a good idea designing it and putting it together. Federal research invented
it." Mrs. Pelosi implied that GPS technology, special alloys and other government-funded research projects were
enough to deem the federal government the inventor of the iPhone.
Your Technology Are Belong To Us. Nancy Pelosi joins the ranks of Al Gore, who invented the Internet, Elizabeth
"'there-is-nobody-in-this-country-who-got-rich-on-their-own" Warren and Barry "you-didn't-build-that-yourself" Obama.
She is now officially one of the illuminati who knows for sure that only the Government invents stuff (thanks to your
individual involuntary contributions to the Federal Treasury). See this iPhone? "Federal research invented it."

For those of you who attended public schools, allow me to point out that research is not the same as invention.
to Media: Follow Late Night Comedians in Taking Down Donald Trump, GOP. Speaking to reporters on
Wednesday [5/11/2016], House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi instructed them to follow the lead of late night comedians (in the
mold of The Daily Show or The Nightly Show) to take down Donald Trump and the Republicans to the point that she offered to
"encourage" them to broadcast such exposes as the general election intensifies. Pelosi led into the suggestion for her
like-minded media members by lamenting that she and her fellow House Democrats would not be able to showcase "a side-by-side
and some of the egregious remarks" made by Donald Trump and allies due to House rules deeming such an exercise illegal.
Husband Invested in Solar Firm Weeks Before Lucrative Expansion. House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi's husband
bought up to a quarter million dollars of stock in a now financially troubled green energy company just weeks before it
announced a major 2014 acquisition that sent stock prices soaring, public records show. SunEdison told regulators last
week that it is eyeing bankruptcy under the weight of $11.7 million in debt. But in late 2014, investors were bullish
on the company, which manufactures and operates solar and wind power facilities. Its 2014 purchase of wind energy company
First Wind "further bolstered the reputation of the company," wrote one market-watcher at the time. "Perhaps unsurprisingly,
SunEdison's stock soared an astounding 29% on news of this acquisition alone."
Pelosi Quotes Mohammad at National Prayer Breakfast. At the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington D.C. this
morning [2/4/2016], House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) quoted Mohammad, the author of Islam's Koran, before she read from
the gospel of John. "We know that this message, this command of love, is not confined to New Testament," she said. "The
same message stands at the center of the Tora and the teachings of the Prophet Mohammad too." Pelosi quoted Mohammad's teaching
that, "None of you has faith until he loves for his brother or his neighbor what he loves for himself."

Pelosi on Tea Party: 'Maybe Anarchy Would
Be Better for You'. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said the House Freedom Caucus, consisting of Tea Party-backed
lawmakers, is harmful to Congress as an institution, suggesting that anarchy might work better for them. Pelosi said she is "hopeful"
and "optimistic" about Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) serving as speaker of the House. Pelosi addressed some conservatives who object to the
new budget deal supported by retiring House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and welcomed by Democrats.
Nancy Pelosi, Expert Catholic.
Yesterday [10/1/2015], Nancy Pelosi held a press conference, where she touted her commitment to "women's health," and her
participation in a movement to ensure Federal funding continued for Planned Parenthood. Although she held the conference
open for questions from the media, she clearly did not believe anyone would actually ask any, and was, apparently, quite
taken by surprise when a journalist asked her whether a fetus with a beating heart and functioning liver, like the ones
referred to in the Center for Medical Progress videos as being perfect to harvest for body parts, was human.
I haven't seen Planned Parenthood videos, but they're doctored. House Minority Leader Nanci Pelosi, D-Calif.,
questioned the truthfulness of the undercover videos that show Planned Parenthood employees discussing the harvesting and
sale of fetal organs, while admitting that she has not watched the videos. [...] "I also know that some of it is not real and
you can create any reality that you want," she said, while admitting that she has not seen the videos, and has only read news
reports about them.
Pelosi stands atop her Margaret Sanger Award and proudly proclaims 'we all support the sanctity of life'. In
yesterday's speech to Congress, Pope Francis said the "Golden Rule also reminds us of our responsibility to protect and
defend human life at every stage of its development." [...] Margaret Sanger Award-winning Planned Parenthood cheerleader
Nancy Pelosi totally agrees with the pope on the sanctity of life at every stage of its development, except when she doesn't.
blasts GOP plans for panel to probe Planned Parenthood. Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is bashing
House Republicans' plans to create a select committee focused on investigating Planned Parenthood after the release of
controversial videos about the group's handling of fetal tissue. "The Speaker's resignation has not yet broken
Republicans' fevered obsession with shutting down government at the expense of women's health," she said in a statement
Saturday, noting Friday's news that Speaker John Boehner will depart after October.
The Editor says...
Planned Parenthood faces numerous credible allegations that the
organs and limbs of aborted babies from their affiliated clinics were sold to the highest bidder. This has no
logical connection to "women's health."
Celebrates Iran Nuke Deal: 'This Is Historic. This Is Grand.'. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.)
expressed tremendous enthusiasm and optimism at her press briefing today about the nuclear deal that the Obama administration
and five other governments has negotiated with the Iranian regime of Ayatollah Sayyid Ali Khamenei. Pelosi called the
deal "historic," "grand," and "visionary." The Congress is currently considering the deal in an unusual procedure that
does not handle the international agreement as a treaty but as an agreement between the president and a foreign government.
Why Progressives Are Wrong to
Revere Margaret Sanger. Margaret Sanger is a saint in the feminist church. She is a charter member of the progressive
hall of fame. Liberals revere this woman who preached "race improvement" and denounced what she called "human weeds". Hillary
Clinton glows that she is "in awe of" Sanger. She said so in 2009 upon receiving Planned Parenthood's "highest honor" that year:
its coveted Margaret Sanger Award. Likewise effusive was Nancy Pelosi when she proudly accepted the award in 2014.
blames feds for sanctuary city killing. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi put the
blame for the release of an illegal immigrant implicated in the July 1 murder of Kathryn Steinle on
federal agencies and bad communication Wednesday, rather than on San Francisco's sanctuary policy.
In a letter, Mrs. Pelosi and Rep. Zoe Lofgren, a fellow California Democrat and a leader on immigration,
said the federal Bureau of Prisons' release of the illegal immigrant to San Francisco was the
foul up — not the city's subsequent release.
someone mention sanctuary cities?
Won't They Ban? Totalitarians want complete fealty. Take Nancy Pelosi who uses
morality like a weapon and wants to remove the Mississippi state flag. On Thursday [7/9/2015],
Nancy Pelosi forced a vote on legislation banning the Confederate flag image (which is actually the
battle flag) from the Capitol. The House referred it to committee where it will be discussed to
death hopefully. Her resolution would have forced the Mississippi state flag, which includes an
image of the Confederate flag, from the House side of the Capitol. The woman who has no problem
with abortion until the moment of birth exclaimed, "This is about our morals. About who we are
Dying on the Sidewalk
of Nancy Pelosi's Sanctuary City. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) once said
that regardless of legal status, "north and south in this hemisphere... we are all Americans." Based
on that absurd statement, it stands to reason that Nancy Pelosi would be the Grand Diva of the sanctuary city
that gave 45-year-old illegal alien Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez asylum from deportation. In the past,
Pelosi also warned America that if Republicans stopped ObamaCare funding for abortion 'women would die on the
floor.' Thus far, not one woman has "died on the floor" because of Republican policy. However,
what has happened is that in Pelosi's very own Democrat-controlled sanctuary city, on a warm summer evening,
a young woman perished on the sidewalk after being shot by an undocumented alien who found refuge under the
wings of Nancy Pelosi-approved lax immigration policy.
Pelosi mend fences at fundraiser hosted by billionaire activist Tom Steyer. There's
nothing like a big-money fundraiser for House Democrats to bring President Obama and House Minority
Leader Nancy Pelosi closer together. Mr. Obama and Mrs. Pelosi, California Democrat, made a show
of mending fences Friday night [6/19/2015] at a fundraiser at the home of billionaire environmental
activist Tom Steyer overlooking the Golden Gate bridge in San Francisco. Friday was their first
meeting since Mrs. Pelosi turned against the president last week by leading the opposition that temporarily
derailed crucial trade legislation Mr. Obama is seeking. Despite those tensions, Mr. Obama told more
than 50 wealthy Democratic donors, who paid up to $33,400 each to help Democrats win in 2016, that Mrs.
Pelosi has been instrumental to his achievements in office.

What Is the Job of Police, 'to Fight a Guerrilla War'? House Minority Leader Nancy
Pelosi (D-Calif.) questioned whether it's the job of law enforcement to conduct "guerrilla warfare"

perplexing claim that House bill would 'cut' VA medical care funds. The House passed
its first appropriations bill for fiscal year 2016, largely voting along party lines on the Military
Construction and Veterans Affairs bill. House Democrats, Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary
Bob McDonald and some veterans groups opposed the bill, saying it inadequately pays for veterans'
medical needs and construction projects that could help expand their access to care. The White
House has threatened to veto the measure. Prior to the House vote, Pelosi said the bill would
"cut" $1.4 billion below the president's budget. She said it "cuts" $690 million
of it from veterans' medical care, the equivalent of 70,000 fewer veterans receiving medical
care through VA in one year. Are her statements accurate?
Obamacare, Equal Pay, Amnesty Promote 'Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
Speaking at the Department of Labor to mark National Equal Pay Day, Representative Pelosi said,
"The strength of America" is "families, and that means empowering moms and dads. It means what we
did with the Affordable Care Act." "Our founders," she continued, "they said life, liberty, and
the pursuit of happiness. Imagine, they put that in a founding document: life, liberty, and the
pursuit of happiness. So, all of this with health care and all the related issues, equal pay, all of
that, give people a life, a healthier life to pursue their happiness."
5 Most Profound Political Quotes Of The Last 5 Years. [#5] "We have to pass the
bill so you can find out what is in it." Nancy Pelosi's shameful utterance about Obamacare has
become the standard in America over the last few years. Enormous bills are put together in secret;
the public is deliberately misled about what the legislation does; politicians don't even bother to
read what they're voting on and then it takes years for the courts to finish ruling on what the
hundreds of pages of tortured legalisms actually mean. That's no way to run a country and it's no
wonder that both politicians and the law itself are increasingly held in contempt if that's the best
we can do.
My trip to Syria was nothing like the GOP's Iran letter. Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.)
is pushing back hard against conservative claims that the recent Republican letter to Iranian
leaders, which has infuriated the White House amid delicate nuclear talks, is akin to her 2007 visit
to Syria against the wishes of the Bush administration. The office of the House minority
leader issued a scathing statement Wednesday night [3/11/2015] saying her meeting with Syrian
dictator Bashar Assad was part of a bipartisan effort — conducted through the Bush
administration — to encourage peace in the region, and accusing Republicans of launching
a "desperate" defense of their Iran letter to mask criticisms coming from both sides of the aisle.

Pelosi: Democrats are fighting for Obama, not illegal immigrants. Senate Democrats'

government takeover of the financial sector since the New Deal.
Won't Say if Unborn Baby at 20 Weeks is a 'Human Being'. CNSNews.com asked: "Is an unborn child 20 weeks
into pregnancy a human being?" Pelosi responded: "You know what, what we're talking about on the floor of the
House is something that says politicians should determine what effects the health of a woman, her life, her health, and the
rest. I don't think it's up to politicians to do that. And that's why we are very overwhelmingly opposing what
is going on on the floor of the House."
Obama's Paris No-Show OK Because 'What Happened Had a Spontaneity to It'. House
Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) excused President Obama's absence from a Paris march on
Sunday because last Wednesday's terrorist attack there was a "spontaneous" event. At a news
conference with her caucus' new policy and communications committee today, Pelosi elaborated a bit
on Obama's meeting with "a chunk of" House and Senate Democratic and Republican leadership. [...]
Pelosi said there was no discussion about Obama's no-show among nearly 50 world leaders who linked
arms in Paris in a show of solidarity against terrorism. "That didn't come up at the meeting,"

Nancy Pelosi: After Republican Rep. Tom Marino gave a speech mentioning that Pelosi had done
nothing on immigration reform when she ruled the House, an enraged Pelosi chased him down two aisles

"Democrats are not fear mongers but "Civilization as we know it would be in jeopardy if Republicans
win the Senate."
Schumer's ObamaCare remarks 'beyond comprehension'. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi
(D-Calif.) says fellow Democratic Sen. Charles Schumer's (N.Y.) recent comments on ObamaCare are
"beyond comprehension." Schumer caused a stir last month when he said Democrats "blew the
opportunity the American people gave them" in 2008 by focusing on healthcare out of the gate instead
of on measures to boost the middle class.
play: Pelosi tries to stoke fear of 'another Republican shutdown'. Democratic leaders
in Congress used an upbeat jobs report Friday [12/5/2014] to spread fear about a possible government
shutdown next week, pressuring Republicans make concessions in upcoming spending bills.
of the end for Nancy Pelosi? Pelosi has worked the new system ably.
She has raised $400 million for her fellow Democrats. She supported campaign chairman Rahm
Emanuel's recruitment of moderates who matched their districts, which gave Democrats a House
majority in 2006.
• She saw to the ouster in 2008 of Energy and Commerce
Chairman John Dingell, the longest-serving House member ever, in favor of her fellow Californian,
• She rallied House majorities for the stimulus package in
February 2009 and for cap-and-trade (a favorite of Bay Area environmentalists) in June 2009. She
pushed through ObamaCare in March 2010.
Pelosi Most Unpopular Member of Congress. Just when you thought no one could
possibly be worse than Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.), you remember there is always Rep. Nancy
Pelosi (D-Calif.). Fifty-eight percent of likely U.S. voters have an unfavorable opinion of
Pelosi, according to a recent Rasmussen Reports poll. What's more, a whopping 41 percent
have a "very unfavorable" view of the Maryland native.
The Democrats' war on women:
anger flares over pregnant lawmaker. A meeting of House Democrats flared up on Tuesday [11/18/2014]
over the increasingly thorny issue of whether a pregnant member should be allowed to vote from afar in the party's
leadership elections this week. Democratic leaders, including Rep. Nancy Pelosi (Calif.), have denied a
request from Rep. Tammy Duckworth (Ill.), who lost both of her legs in the Iraq War, to waive the Democratic rule
barring proxy votes. Duckworth, 46, is in the last stages of a pregnancy and her doctor won't allow her to
travel back to Washington to vote in person.
Pelosi Defends Blocking Pregnant Lawmaker From Proxy Vote. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi defended
a caucus decision not to allow pregnant Rep. Tammy Duckworth vote by proxy from her home in Illinois in this week's
closed-door leadership votes. The decision has raised eyebrows and drawn criticism from conservative pundits,
especially since Democrats are such strong supporters of issues like paid family leave.
out at Nancy Pelosi. The list of grievances — from the election losses, to
routine procedures erupting into nasty fights — has shaken the confidence many Democrats
hold in their leader. So while Pelosi was reelected unanimously by voice vote to the top House
Democratic post on Tuesday [11/18/2014] during a closed-door party meeting — with no audible
disagreement, according to a source in the room — the incoming minority leader is about to be
in the worst position with her caucus since the end of their short-lived majority in 2010.
Confused Elderly Woman Unsure About Which Party
Won Election. Nancy Pelosi thinks the Democrats actually won. When asked about her
vow to win 25 seats back from the Republicans, the elderly lady who has her good moments and her bad
moments becomes confused and confuses "winning 25 seats back" with "winning half of the 25 seats
in play," almost all of which were Democratic seats.

Smug Filled Rooms.
[Scroll down] You see, Gruber's arrogance revealed that the scheme was not only contrary to
the clear language of the statute, but as well to the intent of its authors. He has gravely undercut
the administration's argument to look beyond the language to sustain their expansion of it. While
countless Democrats — including especially Nancy Pelosi — who credited and
relied on Gruber's work now act as if they never heard of him, they can't so easily dispose of him
and his role in the creation of Obamacare .
Jonathan Gruber? "I don't know who he is," Nancy Pelosi told reporters on Thursday. To jog the
former speaker's memory: Jonathan Gruber is, of course, the MIT economist widely hailed for his work
as the "architect" of Obamacare. His sudden demotion comes after video surfaced over the weekend of
a 2013 interview with Gruber at the University of Pennsylvania, where he told listeners that a "lack
of transparency" was crucial to passing Obamacare through Congress in 2010, given the "stupidity of
the American voter." Three more videos have followed, all showing Gruber making substantially
Pelosi Walks into the #Grubergate Buzzsaw. Pelosi might as well have waved a red flag
in front of a target as a starting gun went off. Gruber "wasn't writing" the health care bill? No
one said he was, only that he helped walk Democrats through the crafting of the various bills that became the
Affordable Care Act. It only made sense; Gruber, an MIT professor, had played a similar role in Massachusetts
four years earlier. As speaker of the House, Pelosi herself had promoted Gruber's analyses of the ACA, much
as Democrats promoted the work of economist Mark Zandi to prove that their policies had conservative credibility.
Strategic Failure of Barack Obama. "A gaffe," Michael Kinsley once said, "is when a
politician tells the truth." Unfortunately for the Obama administration, Jonathan Gruber, an
economist hired to design Obamacare, was fecklessly candid about how the Obama administration
misrepresented their flagship program to the rubes. Nancy Pelosi quickly stepped in to show him
how pros do it by denying she ever met Gruber, though the Washington Post produced
transcripts of the former speaker copiously buttressing her arguments with references to Gruber
Pelosi says she doesn't know who Jonathan Gruber is. She touted his work in 2009.
[Scroll down] Pelosi clearly wants to distance herself and Obamacare from Gruber, given Gruber's controversial
comments about "the stupidity of the American voter," and Democrats are going to argue that Gruber
wasn't instrumental in the bill. But, as an architect of the Massachusetts health-care law and a
consultant to the White House on Obamacare, he's been regularly cited by Democrats as an authority
on this issue — including, apparently, by Pelosi.
Dem claims, trash-talking Gruber was well-paid adviser for ObamaCare and more. After a
string of videos have emerged showing [Jonathan] Gruber gloating about how the law's authors
exploited Americans' "stupidity," the White House has distanced itself. House Democratic Leader
Nancy Pelosi even claimed: "I don't know who he is. He didn't help write our bill." But while
Jonathan Gruber might not have been a familiar name until this week for many, Pelosi and the rest of
the lawmakers who pushed the law certainly knew who he was in 2009 and 2010. A look at the record
shows he was in fact paid to advise the Department of Health and Human Services.
Reid Praised Gruber On The Senate Floor. Democratic Senate Minority Leader-elect Harry
Reid called Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber "one of the most respected economists in the world"
on the Senate floor during the 2009 push to pass Obamacare. [...] House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy
Pelosi falsely claimed that she did not know who Gruber was, despite having cited him by name multiple times.
for Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid to go. In politics, there's nothing harder than
realizing that it's time to go. People who have made their careers as Beltway politicians start
to think they've become indispensable to Washington, when in fact it's Washington that has become
indispensable to them. And so they can't or won't recognize when the moment has come to move on to
other things. For Democrats Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, that moment has arrived. With the
Democrats' midterm losses, the two 74-year-olds should announce that when this session of Congress
ends, they will relinquish their roles as leaders of their respective Democratic caucuses.
vows to stay on as leader. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi asked her fellow
Democrats to keep her on as their leader in the new Congress next year, saying she still has
unfinished goals she wants to accomplish. She said the chief message she took from Tuesday's
election, which saw Democrats eviscerated at all levels, is that voter suppression was a problem.
Pelosi raises over $100 million. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has raised over
$100 million for Democrats during this election cycle, the Democratic Congressional Campaign
Committee announced Monday [11/3/2014]. The California Democrat raised $101.3 million for her
party, including $65.2 million raised directly for the DCCC — the campaign party arm for House Democrats.
Just consider the following: the Speaker of the House currently receives an annual salary of
$223,500, and will receive a payment of roughly that amount, depending on the years of service, for
life. An annual payment of this magnitude amounts to about five times the average annual wage in the
United States. But that's not all. For those who have had different positions in Congress, their
retirements can be augmented. For example, Nancy Pelosi will not receive $223,500 for life, but
roughly double that. Why? Because she is a member of Congress, currently the House of
Representatives' Minority Leader, and a retired Speaker of the House. For purposes of computing
retirement pay, Congress adds and accumulates. They do not net.
Pelosi Chides Reporter For Using Term 'Illegal Aliens'. Reacting to a question from a
reporter about whether President Obama's planned executive actions should also deal with Iraqis
living illegally in the United States, Pelosi corrected the reporter who used the term "illegal
aliens." "Are you referring to undocumented people who are in the United States?" Pelosi
questioned. "Illegal aliens, yes ma'am," the reporter responded. "Undocumented people,
OK," Pelosi said again.
of False Tears in the Democratic Crying Towel. I like to think Nancy Pelosi was just joking when she said on Jon Stewart's
Daily Show that if Republicans won control of the Senate, it would be "the end of civilization as we know it." But
the power-grabbing progressive from San Francisco is hardly imbued with a subtle, sarcastic wit. So no doubt she meant every word
she crooned to the partisan Stewart audience, as she had a few years earlier when urging her charges in the House to pass the Affordable
Health Care bill in order to know what was in it.
is furious: 'We never treated President Bush the way they treat President Obama'.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said comparing Republican treatment of President Obama to how
Democrats handled President George W. Bush is a false equivalence and that Democrats don't bear
culpability for the comparatively fewer number of bills being passed by Congress and signed into law.
panic fire: GOP Senate would end 'civilization as we know it'. House Minority Leader
Rep. Nancy Pelosi told "Real Time" host Bill Maher that Democrats are not "fear-mongers" but in the
same breath said civilization is doomed if Republicans manage to take control of the Senate in
November. "It would be very important for the Democrats to retain control of the Senate," the
California Democrat told Mr. Maher on his show Friday night [9/12/2014], which aired live from Washington.
"Civilization as we know it today would be in jeopardy if Republicans win the Senate."
Pelosi: Civilization 'In Jeopardy' If GOP Takes Senate. On the one hand, California
U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi claims that Democrats are not "fear-mongers;" on the other hand, she believes
civilization is doomed if Republicans take control of the Senate from Democrats in November. The
former speaker of the House made those dramatic, incongruous statements on "Real Time with Bill Maher,"
which aired live from Washington, D.C. Friday [9/12/2014].
Republicans Should Never Play Nice with Democrats. On Friday [9/12/2014], Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)
stated that Democrats had to retain control of the Senate. Why? Because "civilization as we know it today would
be in jeopardy if the Republicans win the Senate." She then claimed that Democrats were not "fear-mongers," but instead
"messengers of hope." TV host Bill Maher listened to this with a straight face.
The End of Civil
Rhetoric. Pelosi's intent in this case, as it often seems to be, is to demonize her political opponents as
enemies of civilization. In other instances she has characterized Republicans as bigots who hate women, gays, immigrants,
children, and old people. [...] When one of the highest ranking members of the Democratic Party is willing to compare her
political opponents to wife beaters, and another is unwilling to distinguish them from murderous enemies who behead our own
citizens, how much more shocking can the rhetoric get? Where else can we possibly go?
Nancy Pelosi the
money juggernaut. Nancy Pelosi is almost single-handedly keeping House Democrats afloat. She has raised
$80 million for her party this cycle and more than $400 million during her dozen years as party leader.
home city exempted from water restrictions imposed on rural farmers. [Scroll
down] Craig Manson, who heads the Center for Environmental Science, Accuracy and Reliability
(CESAR) in Fresno, said the lawsuit is aimed at addressing the "double standard" that forces farmers
to give up water in the name of species conservation — without requiring Bay Area
residents to do the same. Mr. Manson wants the National Park Service to press the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service to end the special exemption from the Endangered Species Act (ESA), but "the Park
Service just won't do it." Why not? Jeffrey Olson, National Park Service spokesman, said the
agency cannot comment on ongoing litigation, but critics point out that San Joaquin Valley farmers
have nowhere near the political clout of San Francisco's political leadership, which includes Mrs.
Pelosi and a good chunk of the state's dominant liberal power structure.
The Rise of Progressive
Oligarchy. In what might have appeared to be a minor political event a few weeks back,
Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) called congressman Tom Marino (R-PA) "insignificant" and "inconsequential" in a
debate on the House floor. Why would the former House Speaker insult a colleague in such a manner?
She didn't count her way to this assessment; Democrats do not hold a majority of the House. Nor did
she reason her way to this position, as there was nothing in Rep. Marino's argument on the immigration issue
that raised empirical red flags. [...] But what if Pelosi was simply saying what she believed to be true and
acknowledging what ruling class Americans think about their non-ruling class counterparts?
Subsidies Benefit Husband's Investment in Dem Mega-Donor's Company. The top Democrat in the House of
Representatives steered more than a billion dollars in subsidies to a light rail project that benefitted a company
run by a high-dollar Democratic donor and in which her husband is a major investor.
Pelosi Spearheads $1B Project Aiding Left-wing Mega Donor Tom Steyer; Networks Ignore.
A new report suggested that liberal billionaire Tom Steyer's hedge fund profited from a $1 billion
San Francisco light rail project pushed by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. Steyer was
also a big supporter of Pelosi. Despite being quick to criticize conservative political donors, the
morning and evening news shows on ABC, CBS and NBC have all ignored the allegation since the Washington
Free Beacon broke the story Aug. 12.
Nancy Pelosi About to Break Campaign Fundraising Law? According to Politico, Nancy
Pelosi is holding a meeting in Napa Valley with a number of distressed Democrats. Heavyweights
like Google's Eric Schmidt are also on hand, along with billionaire leftist Tom Steyer. If they were

Bay Maps. Brilliant work by Lachlan Markay at the Washington Free Beacon that
highlights the corruption of D.C. and the ruling elites, especially the hypocrites in the Democrat
Party. I decided to excerpt some key graphs and illustrate just how diabolical these mega-wealthy
oligarchs are, gorging on borrowed money as the federal government sinks into bankruptcy.
Pelosi Urges Obama To Enact 'Broadest Possible' Executive Amnesty. On Tuesday
[8/12/2014], House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said she wanted President Barack Obama to
enact the "broadest possible" executive amnesty. In an interview on Univision radio, Pelosi hoped
that Obama would give temporary amnesty to the parents of DREAMers and U.S. citizens. Obama is
reportedly considering giving temporary amnesty and work permits to millions of illegal immigrants
via executive fiat during the August recess.
The Editor asks...
What is "temporary amnesty?" Is that like a temporary pardon or temporary parole? There is no such thing.
too?: Africa a country, she says. One day after Vice President Joseph R. Biden said he
wanted the "nation of Africa" to prosper, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi appears to have deleted
a tweet that called the continent a country.
Tom Marino: 'Unhinged' Nancy Pelosi Called Me 'Insignificant' for Fighting Amnesty.
"She was pretty unhinged," Rep. Tom Marino (R-PA) told Breitbart News about House Minority Leader
Nancy Pelosi in his first print interview since the California Democrat confronted the Republican
lawmaker in a startling altercation on the House floor last week. The incident was so heated that
Marino said the Sergeant-at-Arms of the House of Representatives had to remove Pelosi —
with help from others — from the floor.
rep says Pelosi 'visibly shaken' during dust-up on House floor, defends remarks. A Republican
congressman who was confronted on the floor Friday night [8/1/2014] by House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi
over his immigration comments told Fox News that the former speaker was "visibly shaken" during the encounter —
but said he's "not going to put up with this." Pelosi lashed out at Rep. Tom Marino, R-Pa., after he
accused Democrats of neglecting the immigration issue when they controlled the White House and Congress
in 2009 and 2010. She could be seen walking over to him and pointing her finger at him — he
later said Pelosi called him "insignificant."
Calls Down the Wrath of Heaven on Conservatives. Friday, from the floor of the House
of Representatives, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi attacked her Republican colleagues for their
push of passage of two bills to deal with the ongoing crisis at the U.S. southern border. Pelosi
invoked a letter from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops lobbying against the GOP efforts and
urged her Republicans to read the the Parable of the Good Samaritan from the New Testament of the Bible.
Nancy Pelosi Gets Owned on the House Floor, She Reacts in Unbelievable Way. Normally,
the Congressional votes are about as exciting as watching paint dry on growing grass, but when House
Representative Tom Marino accused the Democrats of not being brave enough to pass immigration reform
when they controlled the Congress, former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi jumped up and came at
Chases Republican Tom Marino Across House Chamber. In an unusual breach of decorum,
even for the divided Congress, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi chased Rep. Tom Marino across the
House floor, taking offense at comments by the Pennsylvania Republican during debate on the border
funding bill Friday night [8/1/2014].
to Reporters on Midterm Election: 'We Need You to Be Messengers...' When asked at a
press briefing on Thursday [7/31/2014] why her party's message is "not resonating with the electorate,"
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told a room full of reporters "we need you to be messengers."
We Must Exploit Border Crisis To "Quickly" Pass Amnesty. Dems helped foster this mess
so they could try and ram amnesty legislation through Congress.
Pelosi: 'We Cannot Have Deportation without Representation'. During a hearing with
House Democrats on Tuesday [7/29/2014], House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi argued that the bill
proposed by Republicans did not have the adequate resources to help unattended minors crossing the
border with the immigration court process. The bill, announced by Republicans on Tuesday, would
spend $659 million in new spending in response to the crisis on the border.
Pelosi on International Crises: "The President's Leadership Has Been Strong". ["]First
of all let me disagree with the — when we were growing up, you after me, but we were in a bipolar
word, the Soviet Union and the United States. It's a much more complicated situation now and the president's
leadership has been strong. And the issues you are dealing with this morning, the president was in the lead
on supporting Iron Dome and asking for more resources now to help Israel defend itself, which it has as right to do.["]
Pelosi: Moses Was a Refugee Too, Just Like Baby Jesus. House Minority Leader Nancy
Pelosi doubled down on her comments that Americans should view the flood of children crossing the
border while claiming refugee status just like baby Jesus. Pelosi reminded reporters that it was
the National Conference of Catholic Bishops that used the baby Jesus analogy. She then suggested
that if Moses hadn't have been accepted by the Egyptians, then there wouldn't be the Ten Commandments.
The Editor says...
Nothing is more useless than a sermon about the meaning of the Bible delivered by one of the leaders
of the Abortion Party.
The Unaccompanied Minor And the Ten Plagues. [House Minority] Leader Pelosi probably
views Moses in the Nile as similar to Central Americans being ferried across the Rio Grande by human
smugglers. That's why, to support the refugee argument, the minority leader said, "What would we do
if Moses had not been accepted by the pharaoh's family? We wouldn't have the Ten Commandments, for
starters." So, according to Nancy, if the Egyptians hadn't fished baby Moses out of the Nile the
world would never have had the Ten Commandments, one of which is "Thou Shalt Not Kill," a decree
neither Mrs. Pelosi nor any of her cohorts consider when butchering unborn babies.
The Editor says...
Ms. Pelosi's understanding of the Bible is so poor that she appears to give credit to Moses as the
author of the Ten Commandments.
and 'the least of these'. Nancy Pelosi went so far as to lecture us that "every person has
a spark of divinity in them, and is therefore worthy of respect — what we saw in those rooms
was [a] dazzling, sparkling, array of God's children, worthy of respect." It is no surprise that
the left in America would stoop to using children as pawns in their never-ending quest for political
supremacy. When you are willing to take positions that call for the killing of the most vulnerable
among us — those in the womb — are there any depths to which one wouldn't sink?
Kelly Reacts to Pelosi's Office Saying She "Misspoke" About Hobby Lobby Ruling. Thursday night [7/10/2014] on
The Kelly File, Megyn took on House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's comments that the Supreme Court's ruling on Hobby Lobby
is "frightening" because it was decided by five men. Megyn said in reaction, "If Speaker John Boehner made a similar
comment about the female Supreme Court justices, Nancy Pelosi would be crying sexism — and that's what she is guilty of
here." Today [7/11/2014], PolitiFact looked into Pelosi's comments and rated it false. When the fact-checking
site called her office, they said Pelosi "misspoke."
Dems Could Have Impeached Bush But Didn't For Good Of Country. Pelosi accused Bush of
being guilty of impeachable offense saying he "sent us into a war based on a false representation of
the treat of weapons of mass destruction." [...] Pelosi added that "was not something I wanted to
put the country through" although she said the case against Bush sending us into war under a "false
premise" was far more serious then anything Clinton had done.

'I'm Like a Lioness' When It Comes to Protecting Children. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) yesterday [7/10/2014]
described herself as a "lioness" when it comes to protecting children.
on the Border: We Have to Use This 'Crisis' as an 'Opportunity'. Saturday at a press
conference from the Rio Grande Valley, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) discussed her tour of a border
holding facility and addressed the humanitarian crisis of thousands unaccompanied minors flooding
across the U.S.-Mexico border, which she called a "humanitarian opportunity."
Visits the Border: 'Dazzling, Sparkling Array of God's Children'. Despite appalling conditions in the holding pens
and warehouses that are now full of Central American children, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said she was "dazzled" by what
she saw at the U.S.-Mexico border on Saturday [6/28/2014]: "What we just saw was so stunning, if you believe as we do, that
every child, every person, has the park [sic] of divinity in them, and is therefore worthy of respect, what we saw in those rooms
was (a) dazzling, sparkling array of God's children, worthy of respect."
The Editor says...
Ms. Pelosi does not hold the same view of children who have yet to see the light of day.
We Are All Americans Now! Nancy Pelosi has no intention of housing thousands of
Central American immigrants, legal or illegal, in any of her several neighborhoods. The
consequences of importing tens of millions of new unskilled immigrants to drive down wages and
devastate the American working class will be dire, but they won't be felt by the likes of Paul
and Nancy Pelosi.

Cordileone Responds to Nancy Pelosi's Assault on March for Marriage. House Minority
Leader Nancy Pelosi (D) joined other California politicians and leading gay rights advocates in
harshly criticizing San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone for participating in the March
for Marriage in Washington, D.C., on June 19th. As SFGate reports, in a letter to Cordileone,
Pelosi, a self-proclaimed Catholic who supports abortion on demand and same-sex marriage — both of
which are against the teachings of the Catholic Church — described the March for Marriage event as
"venom masquerading as virtue" and said the participants show "disdain and hate towards LGBT persons."
pulls rank, pressures Catholic archbishop to skip traditional marriage march. House
Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi sent a letter to San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone, urging
him to cancel his appearance at a march for traditional marriage on the Supreme Court this
Thursday. The National Organization for Marriage plans to march on the Supreme Court in
Washington, and Mr. Cordileone is one of the featured speakers, the San Francisco Chronicle
reported. "We share our love of the Catholic faith and our city of San Francisco," Mrs. Pelosi
reportedly wrote to Mr. Cordileone, urging him to abandon an event in which some of the
participants, she said, show "disdain and hate towards LGBT persons."
The Editor says...
This is exactly what the separation of church and state is supposed to prevent: Ms. Pelosi is
trying to tell Catholic leaders how to practice their religion.
Pelosi: Iraq Is Not Our Responsibility. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi spoke
about the wave of violence hitting Iraq from Islamic militants, asserting that the United States
does not have a responsibility to assist the country with military action. "I don't think this is
our responsibility, but I do think we were irresponsible for going into Iraq for a variety of other
reasons," she told reporters on Capitol Hill on Thursday. Pelosi called the violence "troubling"
but asserted that there was no American appetite for further military action in the country.
Pelosi flustered by teen's NSA query, blames Bush administration. An obviously
flustered House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi tried to field a teenager's blunt question about the
National Security Agency — but ultimately wrapped by tossing some of blame for the
recent intelligence spy scandals back on the George W. Bush administration. During a recent
meeting with a group of teens, Mrs. Pelosi was asked by Andrew Demeter, who identifies as an
investigative journalist with the TeenTake YouTube channel: "Why do you support the
NSA's illegal and ubiquitous data collection?"
Hidden Cost Chickens in Obamacare Coming Home to Roost. Labor unions have been reliable supporters of
President Obama and his policies. Their support for Obamacare was critical to its passage in 2010. Yet
they are continuing to learn that their members will be paying more for their healthcare, not less. One of the
selling points of Obamacare was the lowering of health insurance costs. Nancy Pelosi promised, "Everybody will
have lower rates." President Obama was more specific, telling us that his signature program would "Bring down
premiums by $2,500 for the typical family." A year later, however, Mrs. Pelosi, in the face of rising premiums
for many, forgot her promise of the previous year, "I don't remember saying that everybody in the country would have
a lower premium."
Pelosi uncertain deaths of veterans at VA qualifies as a scandal. So far, some 23 veterans
are known to have died as a result of long wait times for treatment by the Veterans Administration.
Other deaths are believed to have been caused by long wait times, but the connection between those deaths and
secret waiting lists have not been officially made. [...] Nevertheless, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi
dismissed those concerns in an interview with Ezra Klein. "I think anytime our men and women in uniform
are not served in the manner which they deserve could perhaps call it a scandal," she said.
Pelosi: VA Is A Scandal, Just Maybe Not A Scandal-Scandal. House Minority leader
Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told Vox.com's Ezra Klein that she wasn't sure the Veterans Health
Administration (VA) scandal was an actual, you know scandal. Asked by Klein for her thoughts on
the VA scandal, Pelosi said (audible pauses left in), "Well, it, I .. think any time that our,
our men and women in uniform are not served in the manner at which they deserve, you could perhaps
call it a scandal, because it's scandalous that they're not. Whether it is a scandal with intention
and the rest of that, uh, the evidence remains to be seen. But the fact is uh, that uh, that eh,
they haven't been served worth of their sacrifice or their, uh, role in our country."
Calls Obamacare 'Beautiful', Admits She's One Of 'Biggest Fundraisers' In Country. U.S. House
Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi spoke about a variety of issues in an interview aired Monday [5/26/2014], calling
Obamacare "beautiful", characterizing Republicans as being a "triple threat," and bragging that she's one of
Washington's "biggest fundraisers."
Pelosi blames George W. Bush for Veterans Affairs scandal. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., repeatedly put
the blame for the Veterans Affairs scandal on former President George W. Bush, while arguing that her party has worked hard for
veterans in recent years. Pelosi took a shot at Bush while saying that the scandal is a high priority for Obama.[...] The
Democratic leader never mentioned Bush by name, but she alluded to him early and often in the press briefing.

on Illegals: 'We Cannot Prohibit a Path to Citizenship'. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi
(D-Calif.) said today that the United States, as a country, "cannot prohibit a pathway to citizenship" for
illegal aliens. [...] "I don't think we as a country want to be a country that says, 'You can do our work,
but you can't have the rights of a citizen in our country,'" said Pelosi. "It's more about who we are
as a nation."
The mother of all non-sequiturs:
Pelosi to GOP: Honor Cinco de Mayo by Passing Amnesty. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)
said House Republicans on Cinco de Mayo should be as courageous as the Mexican militia that defeated the French
army in the Battle of Puebla to pass amnesty legislation.
The Editor says...
Oh, yeah. We owe it to Cinco de Mayo, after all. Just like we owe it to Kwanzaa to elect only black
presidents from now on.
says she 'couldn't care less' about Benghazi criticism. House minority leader Nancy
Pelosi said in an interview broadcast Sunday that criticism by conservative lawmakers against
herself and the Obama administration only demonstrates that they are suffering from a "poverty of
ideas." [...] "It means nothing to me," she said. "I consider the source and I consider
them to be stuck in a poverty of ideas. They have none, and that's where they had to go."
Berkeley students told to pay up for cost of graduation ceremony featuring Nancy Pelosi. Students who
graduate from the University of California-Berkeley can expect to spend roughly $120,000 for a four-year degree.
This year, they still must pay an extra $10 to attend their own graduation ceremony, where they will also listen to
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. Students who do not cough up the cash before Wednesday, April 30 for the
campus-wide commencement ceremony have been told they will not be able to attend on May 17 at California Memorial Stadium.
Democrats' revolting equal-pay demagoguery. Since President John F.
Kennedy signed the Equal Pay Act in 1963, it has been illegal for employers to pay women less than men for the same work.
Of course, that wasn't the end of the legislative story.
House's phony wage gap figures spur a backlash. I'm betting the White House staffer who thought up the equal
pay initiative is getting some fairly icy looks and snippy calls from Democrats. This has to be the worst idea since
a staffer sent Air Force One's backup plane to fly low over Manhattan. But at least the jet didn't cause grief to
fellow Democrats around the country. Day 2 of the president's equal pay calamity continued today.
someone mention the New York City fly-over?
Pelosi: Immigration law
like internment of Japanese. The deportation of foreigners living illegally in the United States is similar to
the forced internment of ethnic-Japanese Americans in World War II, according to Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi. "I'll
be very honest with you: Looking at the numbers at some point, in terms of how people are treated and deported and
families separated and the rest, this has a scent of Japanese internment," Pelosi told a Politico reporter. "It's really
a black mark," said Pelosi. Roughly 110,000 ethnic-Japanese immigrants and their American children were detained during
World War II after Japan's sneak attack on Americans in Pearl Harbor.
The Editor says...
It's amusing to hear a politician like Nancy Pelosi begin a sentence with "I'll be very honest with you."
Perhaps she should refrain from using the Japanese roundup as an illustration. Who was the President when
the Japanese were locked up? That's right, another Democrat.
Nancy Pelosi stepped in it again? She may have done some real damage. President Obama still
has a little less than 3 years and now she's saying he now owns the rest of his term.
Catastrophe Like No Other. Support it or not, you cannot look at ObamaCare and call
it anything but a huge, historic mess. It is also utterly unique in the annals of American
lawmaking and government administration. Its biggest proponent in Congress, the Democratic
speaker of the House, literally said — blithely, mindlessly, but in a way forthcomingly —
that we have to pass the bill to find out what's in it. It is a cliché to note this.
But really, Nancy Pelosi's statement was a historic admission that she was fighting hard for something
she herself didn't understand, but she had every confidence regulators and bureaucratic interpreters
would tell her in time what she'd done. This is how we make laws now.
Washington wanted Obamacare, Pelosi says. Democratic leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi emerged into the
sunlight April 1 to applaud a rush of sign-ups for Obamacare, and immediately described it as the long-sought
goal of Gen. George Washington and the nation's Founding Fathers in 1787. "It is really so heart warming
for those of us who worked so hard [to make sure] many more people in our country would have access to
healthcare," she told reporters at the stakeout position just outside the West Wing portico.
won't run on Obamacare: 'While we're proud of the Affordable Care Act, we now pivot to jobs'.
Pelosi appeared in front of the White House to extoll the expected 7 million Obamacare sign-ups the
administration reached before the quasi-deadline on March 31. But when a reporter asked the
California congresswoman whether this represented "vindication" and a "turning of the tide" on the unpopular
law, she stopped short of declaring Obamacare a winning issue. "Well let me just say, those of us who
fought for this knew what we believed in and really don't think we needed any vindication," she responded.
Don't Measure ACA by How Many Uninsured Get Insurance. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) says
Democrats passed their health insurance law, not to insure the uninsured, but to give people "quality" health care and
"affordable" health care. "Madam Leader, isn't the real measure of success, not the raw number who signed up,
but how many of those who signed up were not insured before?" a reporter asked Pelosi at a news conference on
Tuesday. "No, that's not — the measure is twofold," Pelosi responded. "The message
is how many people have access to health care — quality, affordable health care and insurance."
the Democrats' Culture of Corruption. This week the indictment and arrests of leading San Francisco
and California Democrat politicians follows a long string of corruption cases involving prominent Democrats. It
brings to mind the ridiculous charges by Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi (echoing Howard Dean) that the Republicans were
responsible for a "culture of corruption" and that she, a woman, was going to sweep the Congress clean of it.
Getting Award Named for Woman Who Called Children 'Human Weeds'. Planned Parenthood on
Thursday will give House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) its Margaret Sanger Award, named for
a woman who advocated eugenics and who described some children as "human weeds," while arguing that to
grow a "beautiful garden of children," you "have got to fight weeds." In that same speech from
1925, Sanger explained that parenthood should be legal only under certain conditions: a minimum age
for parents of 23 years, a "space out between births," "economic circumstances adequate," and
"spiritual harmony between parents."
Pelosi [is] Getting [an] Award Named for [a] Woman Who Said [it is] 'Most Merciful' to Kill [an] 'Infant'. Planned
Parenthood on Thursday will give House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) its Margaret Sanger Award, named for a woman who
advocated eugenics and who wrote that large families would be doing what was "most merciful" if they killed one of their infants.
"The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it," wrote Sanger. Planned
Parenthood is giving Pelosi, a Catholic, its Margaret Sanger Award because of her "leadership, excellence, and outstanding
contributions to the reproductive health and rights movement over the course of her career."
The Editor says...
By now, Margaret Sanger's errors have been made abundantly clear to her.
Why Did Nancy Pelosi Accept an Award Named After Sanger?
Democrat Rep. Nancy Pelosi [...] has accepted an award named for Margaret Sanger. And Margaret Sanger was
definitely a racist monster who advocated murdering live children for the sake of eliminating "undesirables."
A Whole Lotta Democratic Corruption
Going On. Has Nancy Pelosi seen a newspaper lately? (Pro tip, hon: Like the Obamacare
monstrosity, you have to read it to find out what's in it.) I'd love to see her face in the wake of
the veritable epidemic of Democratic corruption now sweeping the country. Pelosi's blink count must
be off the charts. I'm going to make it easy on Pelosi and put all of the latest cases in one handy
rogue's gallery reference list.
Pelosi chides reporter for referring to ObamaCare: 'It's called the Affordable Care
Act'. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., chided a reporter on Thursday for referring to President
Obama's health care law as "Obamacare." [Video clip]
to Receive Planned Parenthood Award Honoring Eugenicist. Next week, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America
will present House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) with the Margaret Sanger Award. The award is the group's "highest
honor" and is named for a woman who believed in breeding better humans through eugenics. Planned Parenthood is
the nation's leading abortion provider, having performed 327,166 of the procedures in 2012, according to its latest
annual report. Pelosi, a Catholic, will receive the Margaret Sanger Award at the PPFA's annual gala in Washington,
D.C. on Mar. 27.
Nancy Pelosi 'will go down in history as one of the greatest speakers'. President Obama took the
opportunity to flatter House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi during a fundraiser Thursday for House Democrats at
the Florida home of former NBA star Alonzo Mourning. Obama said the California Democrat "will go down in
history as one of the greatest speakers in our history" and indicated that he was eager to return her to her
former position as Speaker of the House.
law is a 'winner' for Democrats. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said the health care law is a "winner,"
when asked whether it's a winning or losing issue for Democrats in swing districts this year. [...] Pelosi also emphasized
that health law's name, the Affordable Care Act, is important because it describes what the law will do: lower costs.
She said opponents started using "Obamacare" because they "wanted to get away from the word 'affordable,'" she added.
She said she's made that point to President Barack Obama, who has himself used the term "Obamacare" at times.
Nancy Pelosi is
certain: Obama is most 'non-partisan' president. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Thursday that
President Obama is the least partisan president she has worked with during her extensive time in Washington, and said
the problem lies with the GOP. "This is as non-partisan a president as I've ever served with," the California
Democrat said at her weekly press briefing.
Pelosi Annoyed That People Won't Stop Calling Affordable Care Act 'Obamacare'. In response to a reporter asking a
question about Obamacare being a political winner or loser, Pelosi said, "By the way, it's called the Affordable Care Act.
It's called the Affordable Care Act. I know you didn't intend any compliment or derogatory — it's called the
Affordable Care Act." She said she would gladly tell Obama the same thing, and continued to repeat herself to hammer the
point home. "There's a reason. Affordable. Affordable. Affordable. Affordable. Affordable.
The reason they change the name of it is because they want to get away — the opponents — from the
Laughably Claims Democrats Are The Jobs Party. Former House Speaker Pelosi supposedly had been celebrating the
fourth anniversary of the enactment of ObamaCare last week. [...] "We just couldn't be prouder," she said of the health
reform that has been separating Americans from their preferred doctors, their health plans and lots more of their money in
taxes and higher premiums. But when a reporter asked if ObamaCare is "a political liability for your party" in an
election year, Pelosi gave a jaw-dropping reply: "We're not running on this," she claimed. "We're running
on what the American people want us to run on, and that is job creation." Then, as if her party had nothing to do
with the economic policies of the last five years that have given the country the worst economic "recovery" of the modern
era, Pelosi added: "Show us the jobs. Where are the jobs?" She then asked, as if incredulous, "Why are
we not here passing a jobs agenda?" Excuse us, Congresswoman, but we did pass a "jobs agenda." Your jobs agenda.
Pelosi Dismisses Family Values:
'Why Would Anybody Get Married?'. In an interview with Now This News, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) discussed marriage, whether it is
traditional or same-sex, and seemed to dismiss the sacred tradition.
Liberals Turn To Oppression To Hold On To Power. If you're a conservative, you don't need to silence the opposition. In fact, we
conservatives want liberals to talk, to make buffoons of themselves, to prove their folly. We want liberals to expound upon their ridiculous
ideas, to show the world exactly what they're about. Nancy Pelosi? Give that tiresome woman a microphone. Chatty liberals are the best
advertisement for conservatism.
the Founding Fathers Would Totally Support Obamacare. America's Founding Fathers fiercely held to life, liberty, and the pursuit of
happiness — values which Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) claimed align seamlessly with Obamacare. Pelosi explained why the law is "very sound
policy" during a press conference Friday: [Pelosi quote omitted for brevity.] This argument should be added to the montage of lies being
promulgated by the Obama administration.
The Editor says...
The Founding Fathers would never have allowed women to run for Congress — or even vote. Thus the Founding Fathers made no provision
for people like Nancy Pelosi to have political power. I'm a little surprised how proudly (and falsely) she attributes ideas to the Founding Fathers.
Priests for Life African American leader blasts Nancy
Pelosi for pro-choice stance. Dr. Alveda King, director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life, based in New Dorp, blasted
pro-choice House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who is slated to receive the Margaret Sanger Award from Planned Parenthood. Ironically, the
first recipient of the award, named after a founder of Planned Parenthood, was none other than Dr. King's uncle, the civil rights leader Rev. Dr.
Martin Luther King Jr.
Pelosi Deserves Her Planned Parenthood
Award. It's true that Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi deserves Planned Parenthood's Margaret Sanger Award — almost no one
has done more to promote the killing of innocent babies in the womb than she has. If Mrs. Pelosi wants finally to take her role as a public
servant seriously, though, she will reject the award named after a racist woman who had no problem speaking to a Ku Klux Klan meeting.
Electing Nancy Pelosi
to find out what's in her head. Thursday night House Minority Leader and former Speaker of the House Rep Nancy Pelosi (D-Cal)
who represents a district that believes we have to be against income inequality and the one per cent even though our income is unequal
because we are part of the one per cent, helped comedian Jon Stewart establish his bi partisan cred. Appearing
on his show, even he laughed at her — not with her — when she repeatedly answered "I don't know" and "It's not my responsibility"
to such simple questions as to why the Obamacare website failed.
Pelosi: I Don't
Know If Any of My Staffers Have Gone On to Work for Federal Contractors. Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) seemed unaware that
several of her former staffers have gone on to lobby for big corporations Thursday on The Daily Show. [...] A brief search of Pelosi's
revolving door records on Open Secrets reveals 28 records of current and former staffers who have gone through the "revolving door"
between Congress, lobbying firms and the private sector.
Will Nancy Pelosi Be the Next to
Retire? With Rep. Henry Waxman's retirement announcement, many of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's top lieutenants are
abandoning ship. Waxman joins his California colleague, Rep. George Miller, and Rep. Jim Moran of Virginia as close Pelosi allies to
retire after this Congress. And after last year's 2012 elections, Pelosi's leading in-house strategist Jen Crider left her office, later
announcing she was working for Microsoft. Their decisions are as strong a signal as any that veteran House Democrats hold little hope of
taking the House in 2014, and they probably are pessimistic about their long-term prospects for a congressional majority.
to Reporter: Um, Don't Call it "Obamacare". Names have connotations, so perhaps that's why Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) corrected
a reporter Thursday [1/9/2014] for referring to the Affordable Care Act as "Obamacare."
Pelosi: Obamacare will be 'glorious'.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Monday [12/23/2013] defended Obamacare amid fellow Democrats' concerns, saying that while the politics may be
tricky right now, eventually having voted for the health care law will be a boon. "We'll ride this out," the California Democrat said on a
conference call with reporters.
A Government of Laws? The ObamaCare Rot.
Nancy Pelosi is off the hook. Her famous comment that we had to pass ObamaCare to find out what was in it will live on as a shining example of
legislative malfeasance and irresponsible governance, of course, but it's no longer operative. The reason her remark resonated was because it was
true: even the members of Congress who voted for the law seemed to have no idea what much of it said, and therefore they and the public they misled
had to find out the hard way. The reason she is off the hook, however, is that President Obama has now made it clear that it is scarcely relevant
what the law says anyway.
Pelosi calls for Obama to halt
deportations. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi privately has urged the Obama administration to halt deportations for some illegal
immigrants, saying that President Obama needs to use more "discretion" to reduce the number of people he's kicking out of the country. In an
interview with Telemundo over the weekend, Mrs. Pelosi said that just being in the country illegally is not enough of a reason to be deported, and
she said illegal immigrants must have something more serious on their records.
The Editor says...
Analogy: Just breaking into Ms. Pelosi's house should be no reason to call the police, unless she has evidence of some other crime as well.
Why does the US-Mexico border exist, if there is to be no enforcement of it?
Pelosi: GOP Failure to Extend
Unemployment Benefits Practically 'Immoral'. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) says the Republican refusal to include unemployment
benefits in the Ryan-Murray budget deal is immoral. "It's interesting to note that they rejected unemployment insurance — this is so unconscionable,
it's practically at the level of immoral to do. The people who work hard, play by the rules, lose their job through no fault of their own, are not
able to get — continue to get an unemployment insurance check."
Morality, Anti-Morality, and Socialism.
During the ObamaCare enslavement, Speaker Pelosi made a statement of utmost dopiness, which captures the essence of humanist anti-morality. She
said to the effect that if young people had government healthcare they would be freed to be artists and musicians. It expresses the delusion that
self-actualization means being an artist, and implicitly denigrates most work and the virtue of diligence. If everyone is to be a government-supported
artist, who is left to make things, to raise children, to pay the bills?
Nancy Pelosi Was a Stay-at-Home
Mom, Then She "Got a Life". During Politico's "Women Rule" event this morning, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi joined her daughter
Alexandra on stage to discuss her former duties as a full-time mom and eventual road to Congress. Alexandra shared how her mom used to lead carpools,
cook and clean all day and even win prizes for her cake baking. Being defined as domestic clearly made the powerful Minority Leader a bit squeamish.
The Party of Big Lies. The
"big picture" Nancy speaks of was ramming a draconian and expensive government-run health care system down the throats of the
American people by any means necessary. The instrument of this particular coup d'état was not a military
faction seizing power on behalf of its fearless leader, merely a big lie. The lie was the ammunition. Soft-headed
Americans were the weapons. They elected the liar in the White House twice. And here is the point: Obama
and Pelosi lie so easily because for them there is but one objective truth — power.
Pelosi Breaks with Reality:
Dems 'United' on Obamacare, 'Couldn't be More Thrilled'. While many Democrats, in an effort to save themselves, have jumped from
the Obamacare ship and acknowledged the very-real shortcomings and disastrous effects the law is already having on the American people, Rep.
Pelosi remains tone deaf and refuses to acknowledge the realities that remain so obvious to millions of Americans.
House Democratic leaders won't apologize for
Obamacare promise. "There's nothing in the Affordable Care Act that says that your insurance company should cancel you," [Nancy Pelosi]
told reporters. "That's not what the Affordable Care Act is about. It simply didn't happen." She continued that she did not make a
similar statement to her constituents, noting that she "would have if I ever met anybody that liked his or her plan, but that was not my experience."
Pelosi Shocked at Obamacare Outrage: I've Never Met Anyone Who Liked Their Insurance Plan. Democrats are terrified, but Pelosi, an
old pro, never wants to let them see her sweat. To that end, during a press conference with her fellow Democratic leaders on Friday, Pelosi
attempted to convince the media that there is very little outrage being directed at the Democrats to begin with.
The Editor says...
Ms. Pelosi is a California leftist. Thus she has probably never met anybody who goes to church on Sundays, or anybody who has shot
a deer, or anybody who can live their lives without help from the government for years at a time.
House Democratic Leaders:
We Will Not Apologize to Americans Losing Their Health Insurance. Speaking to reporters on Capitol Hill, the top four House
Democrats — Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Assistant Leader James Clyburn, Whip Steny Hoyer and House Democratic Caucus Chairman Xavier
Becerra — were asked if they would apologize to any constituents who felt misled by Democrats. Each declined.
gay community to name Pelosi a 'Hometown Hero'. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, a Baltimore native, will next month receive a "lifetime
achievement award for her longtime dedication to LGBT rights and her work to fight HIV/AIDS in Congress," gay leaders in Baltimore said Friday [10/25/2013].
The Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Community Center of Baltimore is giving Pelosi the award at its inaugural "Hometown Hero Awards & Champagne Brunch" on
Nov. 17 in Baltimore, an event it expects some 500 people to attend.
Nancy Pelosi: Republican 'sabotage'
hindering health care law. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi believes the new health care law should move forward without delay and said that
"sabotage" by Republicans, and not just computer glitches, is hindering implementation. Pelosi said the offices of some Republican lawmakers "are not
giving information to constituents for how they can avail themselves" of the new program. Republicans are withholding the information, Pelosi said, "to
undermine the Affordable Care Act." Michael Steel, a spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said the GOP had nothing to do with the troubled rollout.
Pelosi on pork project: 'What
difference does it make?' House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi Thursday [10/17/2013] said she can't answer for why pork-barrel items
snuck into the debt and spending bill that passed Congress late Thursday, but said the press should stop focusing on that and instead look at the
broader debt fight.
'What difference does
it make?' Pelosi says of extra spending in shutdown deal. Americans shouldn't think much about the various appropriations in the bill to reopen
government, according to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., even though she wished the spending measures weren't in the bill. "This was
consistent with what would be in a continuing resolution," Pelosi told reporters when asked about extra measures such as a death benefit for the widow of the
late Sen. Frank Lautenberg, D-N.J., and earmarked spending for a Kentucky dam.
Nancy Pelosi Flounders When Asked Actual Questions By
Press. You look silly when you don't have good answers to questions being asked.
CBS Hounds Pelosi Over Shutdown: 'You've Called Them Arsonists'. CBS This Morning has a long established history of conducting
softball interviews of liberal/Democratic guests, while unleashing on conservative/liberal ones. But on Friday [10/4/2013], the morning newscast
surprisingly hounded Rep. Nancy Pelosi on the ongoing government shutdown.
Bankrupt ideas lead to bankrupt governments.
There is nothing left to cut," said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi last week when referring to the federal budget. Again, she displayed a complete
disconnect with reality — a disconnect reinforced by all those other fantasyland souls who make her their leader. [...] [F]ederal spending is at
record levels in nominal terms and near the all-time high as a percentage of gross domestic product (GDP), except during World War II.
Pelosi: Obama can raise debt limit on his own (an
impeachable offense). Nancy Pelosi wants you to think debating the debt limit is dumb. From what she knows of the Constitution,
Obama can raise the debt limit on his own. [...] Public debt has to be authorized by law, and only Congress can pass laws. Not complicated.
But, apparently, too complicated for Pelosi.
official: Pelosi should be denied communion for 'grave sin' on abortion. A Vatican official in Rome says House Minority Leader
Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), a Catholic, should be denied Communion because she supports abortion rights. "This is a person who obstinately,
after repeated admonitions, persists in a grave sin — cooperating with the crime of procured abortion," Raymond Cardinal Leo Burke
said in an interview with Catholic publication The Wanderer.
Confuses Constitution With Declaration of Independence. Speaking last Wednesday [9/18/2013] at the Center for American
Progress (CAP), Democratic Leader of the House Nancy Pelosi became a little confused at one point, stumbling over her words and flipping
through her notes while referencing one of the founding documents of the United States.
No communion for Nancy Pelosi:
Vatican court head. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has no Catholic right to be granted Communion, said the leading cardinal
of the highest court at the Vatican. Mrs. Pelosi should be denied Communion until she changes her advocacy views on abortion, Cardinal
Raymond Leo Burke said, according to the Western Center for Journalism. That's canon law, not opinion, he said. Canon 915
states that Catholics who are stubbornly contrary "in manifest grave sin are not to be admitted to Holy Communion." And Cardinal Burke
said Mrs. Pelosi fits the definition.
Justice: Nancy Pelosi Must Be Denied Communion. Because of her longstanding support for abortion, House Minority Leader Nancy
Pelosi (D-Calif.), a Catholic, must be denied Communion under the law of the Catholic Church, said Cardinal Raymond Burke, head of the highest
court at the Vatican. Cardinal Burke referenced his remarks about Pelosi to Canon Law — the law governing the Catholic
Church — and specifically Canon 915, which says those Catholics who obstinately persevere "in manifest grave sin are not
to be admitted to Holy Communion."
Pelosi: Let's face
it, Republicans hate Obama because he's eloquent and "nonpartisan". The perfect companion vid to Jay Cost's analysis this morning of how
unusually, relentlessly partisan The One's rhetoric has been as president, especially in his weekly YouTube messages. Oh, and also to Politico's
round-up of Democrats wondering why someone who's so often touted as a brilliantly eloquent orator can't seem to sell the public on anything except his
own personal awesomeness.
Pelosi: GOP just doesn't like Obama.
Nancy Pelosi, the top Democrat in the U.S. House, seems to believe that Republicans don't like President Obama because they're jealous. "You know why
it is," Pelosi told Politico in an interview. "He's brilliant ... He thinks in a strategic way in how to get something done ... and he's completely
eloquent. That's a package that they don't like." Republicans also don't like what Pelosi called the president's non-partisanship. Obama
has been "open, practically apolitical, certainly non-partisan, in terms of welcoming every idea and solution," Pelosi told Politico[.]
Nancy Pelosi unplugged. Striking a tone
of disgust, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi ridicules the GOP as obsessed with its loathing of President Obama and hell-bent on hurting him politically,
regardless the cost. She assigns little to no blame to the president (even though Democrats privately say that's laughable) and instead portrays him as
saintly, above reproach and the victim of jealousy or something worse. After 26 years in the House, she says, "I haven't seen anything like it.
I haven't seen anything like it."
Creative Destruction. Nancy Pelosi waxed rhapsodic in 2010 as
she imagined the benefits of Obamacare: "Think of an economy where people could be an artist or a photographer or a writer without worrying about keeping
their day job in order to have health insurance." Well, that was the economy we used to have. But as Obamacare begins to kick in, artists,
photographers, writers, and other members of the "creative class" who have access to health insurance programs through numerous professional organizations
will lose that coverage.
Letter Urging CA Gov. to Make State Sanctuary for Illegal Immigrants. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) signed a letter urging
California Governor Jerry Brown (D) to sign into law a bill that would make the state a sanctuary state for illegal immigrants who have not committed
felonies or "serious" crimes. Pelosi joined 27 other California House Democrats in signing the letter.
The Editor says...
Who defines the limits of "serious" crimes?
Bad Lies. In June, Congressperson Nancy Pelosi described
abortion as "sacred ground" to a Catholic. [...] With Pelosi, it is often more obvious that incompetence and dishonesty are not mutually
exclusive. Everyone knows that the Catholic Church condemns abortion as a grave evil and that it advocates for the right to life "from
conception to natural death." It is the least ambiguously held position in the public square. Also well understood is that
Catholicism comes in only one version. There is no Pelosi Catholicism [...]
Nancy Pelosi, Creep Enabler. The most powerful female
Democrat on Capitol Hill has turned her back on women. Again. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, entrenched 13-term incumbent, refuses
to say whether creepster San Diego Mayor Bob Filner should resign amid an avalanche of longstanding sexual harassment allegations, staff resignations
and now a lawsuit. "What goes on in San Diego is up to the people of San Diego. I'm not here to make any judgments," declared the
very same feminist crusader who has spearheaded unabashedly judgmental nationwide attacks on the so-called "Republican War on Women."
Congress Must Uphold Oath to 'Protect and Defend' Constitution... by Passing Gun Control. In a press release marking the one-year
anniversary of the Aurora, Colorado shootings, the former Speaker of the House said: "In Congress, there can be no more fitting memorial
to the lives lost in Aurora, in Newtown, and across the country than a concerted effort to enact commonsense gun safety legislation.
"We must uphold our oath to 'protect and defend' the constitution and all Americans by expanding background checks and keeping dangerous
firearms out of the wrong hands."
Dems reluctant to weigh in on San Diego mayor groping claims. Democrats who accused Republicans of being anti-women during last
year's campaign are strangely silent now that one of their own — San Diego Mayor Bob Filner — is accused of groping and
sexually assaulting women. "Don't identify him as my former colleague," an agitated House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi reportedly said
Thursday night [7/18/2013] when asked about the claims against Filner. Pelosi worked alongside Filner for 10 years in Congress.
Mrs. Pelosi's Erroneous
Ongoing Catechesis. Overnight I received an e-mail from MSNBC publicity about an interview Andrea Mitchell has done with former
speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, airing later today [7/18/2013]. They talk about the Texas bill that will be signed into law today, which
puts protections in place for unborn children at 20 weeks and older. Pelosi, not for the first time, tries to shut down any opposition
to her abortion-rights "sacred ground" position by pulling a "mother" and "Catholic" card, somewhat incoherently.
Affordable Care Act: 'Captures the Spirit of our Founders'. Independence Day is the perfect day to remember that liberal
Democrats want Americans to be dependent on government. Nancy Pelosi reminded Americans of that on June 27 with her remarks
to the press about the national holiday, where she essentially argued that the Founding Fathers would have loved ObamaCare. "[W]hen
we celebrate Independence Day we'll also be observing health independence. This week marks one year since the Supreme Court upheld
the Affordable Care Act. It captures the spirit of our founders, the spirit they wrote in the Declaration of Independence:
Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness," Pelosi said.
Priests Rebuke Nancy
Pelosi: Repent or Join a Satanic Church. I wish the craven evangelical ministers would grow some cojones like "The Priests for Life"
obviously have and start rebuking politicians who claim union with Christ while proposing and supporting legislation that's spawned in the abyss.
Pro-Abortion Pelosi to Renounce Catholicism. Priests for Life slammed House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi in an open letter this week,
telling her to "either exercise [her] duties as a public servant and a Catholic, or have the honesty to formally renounce them." The harsh words
came after Pelosi blasted a reporter for asking the "moral difference" between a late-term abortion and the murder of a viable baby after birth.
Priests to Pelosi: condemn abortion or leave the
Church. A pro-life group called on California Democrat Rep. Nancy Pelosi to "exercise your duties as a public servant and a Catholic, or
have the honesty to formally renounce them," in a widely-circulated open letter Wednesday [6/19/2013]. "Public servants are supposed to be able
to tell the difference between serving the public and killing the public. Apparently, you can't," wrote national director of Priests for Life
Father Frank Pavone.
Pelosi: Banning Abortion Post-22
Weeks is 'Disrespectful' to Women. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said a bill to outlaw abortions after
22 weeks (5-and-a-half months) is "disrespectful" to women, adding that "as a practicing and respectful Catholic, this is sacred
ground to me." "Yesterday was just really another day in the life of the Republican Congress," Pelosi said during a Thursday press
conference on Capitol Hill. "They passed legislation that was disrespectful of the rights, health and safety of American women."
angered by reporter's question about 'moral difference' between Gosnell, other abortions. House Minority Leader Nancy
Pelosi, D-Calif., accused a reporter of pushing an "agenda" when he asked her to explain the "moral difference" between the murders
that Kermit Gosnell was convicted of and elective abortions carried out beyond the 24th week of a pregnancy. "You're probably
enjoying that question a lot, I can see you savoring it," Pelosi replied when The Weekly Standard's John McCormack finished asking the
question. "What was done in Philadelphia was reprehensible," she continued. And then, referring to a bill that the House
Judiciary Committee passed recommending the ban of abortions after 20 weeks, Pelosi said "for them to decide what a women does
with her reproductive health is reprehensible."
Top House Democrat stonewalls: "This is sacred ground."
Pelosi Can't Explain Difference Between
Gosnell Slayings and Late-Term Abortions. At a Thursday [6/13/2013] press conference, House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi
condemned a bill that would prohibit abortions during the final four months of pregnancy with and exception for when the life and physical
health of the mother is at risk. Asked what the moral difference is between what Dr. Kermit Gosnell did to babies born alive and
aborting those same infants moments before birth, Pelosi refused to answer. "As a practicing and respectful Catholic, this is sacred
ground to me when we talk about this," Pelosi said. "I don't think it should have anything to do with politics."
Pelosi's wealth falls to $24.4 million.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's (D-Calif.) substantial personal wealth dropped for the second year in a row after she took on more
debt with her husband, according to her latest financial disclosure report. Pelosi's personal fortune was at least $24.4 million
in 2012, according to her financial disclosure statement released on Friday [6/14/2013]. That's an almost 8 percent decline
from her minimum net worth of $26.4 million for 2011.
Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi are America's great dividers. This statement appears on the House Minority
Leader's web site: "Democrats are building an economic approach that lifts every American, not just the privileged
few. The average American CEO earns more before lunchtime in one day than a minimum wage worker earns all year.
This is not the kind of America we want our children to grow up in. Today's economic challenges result from years
of Republican inaction and failed policies that have left more and more Americans behind." In Pelosi's world,
Democrats are for "every American," while Republicans favor only "the privileged few."
Pelosi: Role of
government is 'fulfillment'. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Thursday that one of government's functions is to
help Americans achieve "fulfillment." Making a pitch for Congress to pass bills keeping government subsidies in student loans
and to pass legislation bolstering federal support for jobs, Mrs Pelosi said there is a fundamental difference between the approach
her party brings to legislating. "To some of us the role of government is about doing things for the American people to help
them reach fulfillment," the California Democrat said.
Mandated to Have Health Insurance, Yes, You Will Have An Increase'. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said
on Thursday [6/6/2013] that health insurance premiums will go up under Obamacare because people who did not buy insurance before, and
thus had no premium at all, will now be forced to buy insurance. She also urged people to be "optimistic" about Obamacare.
"You just see," Pelosi said. "I mean be optimistic about it. It is a very, very exciting enterprise."
GOP focusing on Bengazi, AP and IRS because Obama 'is a great president'. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.,
charged Republicans with "exploiting" the questions surrounding the Benghazi talking points, the AP phone records seizure and the IRS
scandal to attack President Obama because "they fear" his agenda and eloquence.
ObamaCare 'largely responsible' for bringing down deficit. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Monday [5/13/2013]
that President Obama's landmark healthcare reform law is helping to bring down the deficit. "Many of the initiatives that he passed
are what are coming to bear now, including the Affordable Care Act," Pelosi said in an interview with MSNBC's Chris Hayes. "The
Affordable Care Act is bringing the cost of health care in our country down in both the public and private sector. And that is what
is largely responsible for the deficit coming down."
Nancy Pelosi: 'I pray' Hillary Clinton
runs for president. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Thursday [5/2/2013] at an event in Little Rock, Ark., that she prays former
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will run for president, saying it would send a powerful message to women in the world.
Pelosi: 'Unleash' Women Via
'Affordable Quality Childcare for All'. "What we have to do," said Pelosi, "and not necessarily as, shall we say, as
transformative as Social Security and Medicare and the Affordable Care Act for everybody, but I think very important to our country,
is to have affordable quality childcare for all of America's children. If we are going to unleash all that women have to offer
we have to really get to this point."
Poll: Nancy Pelosi [is the] least liked Hill
leader. Americans dislike all four of the nation's top congressional leaders, according to a poll released Wednesday, with
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi leading the way in unpopularity. Pelosi, the target of extensive GOP attack ads over the years,
is viewed unfavorably by 48 percent of Americans in the Gallup poll. Only 31 percent have a favorable opinion of the
former House Speaker.
Pelosi: Obamacare Means 'You
Could Be A Photographer or Writer'. Marking the third anniversary of Obamacare's passage, House Minority Leader Nancy
Pelosi (D-Calif.) said the health care law fulfills the promises of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness because it allows people
to leave jobs that include health insurance as a benefit: You can become a "photographer or writer." "I've always said that
the Affordable Care Act is something that was transformative," Pelosi said Wednesday during a press conference on Capitol Hill marking
the upcoming anniversary of the law on March 23.
Pelosi Will Balance the Budget Over Her Dead
Body. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said on Thursday that she would like to see a balanced budget, "in
a number of decades." During her weekly press conference on Capitol Hill, CNSNews.com asked Pelosi if she agreed with President
Barack Obama's recent remarks that America does not have an "immediate" debt crisis. The U.S. debt as of Wednesday stands
at $16.7 trillion.
Pelosi: 'I Don't Think Obama Has Ever Done Anything for Political Reasons'. House Minority Leader Nancy raised some
eyebrows and got a few laughs when she said this of President Obama: "I don't think he's ever done anything for political
reasons [...] This has been a president as bipartisan as any that I've seen."
Pelosi: Obama Has Never Done Anything For Political Reasons. [Video clip]
Nancy Pelosi demands $10.10 per hour
minimum wage. Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that recent Wall Street gains mean one sure thing:
The minimum wage should be hike to $10.10 per hour. "This week, we saw something quite remarkable — the stock marking
soaring to record heights," she said, Raw Story reported. [...] So, she suggests, why not raise the current minimum wage from $7.25 per
hour to $10.10 per hour — even more than the $9 per hour proposed by the president?
Pelosi: 'Tax Cuts Are Spending'.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) said today that the government must cut spending, and then explained that:
"Tax cuts are spending." "Our whole budget is what $3.5 trillion," Pelosi said at a Capitol Hill press conference.
"So, when we talk about reducing spending, we certainly must, and we certainly have — $1.6 trillion in the
previous Congress, $1.2 [sic] of it in the Budget Control Act.
Pelosi: Obama can keep drone
strikes against Americans a secret. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., believes that President Obama doesn't necessarily have to
announce that an American citizen suspected of terrorism has been killed in a drone strike. "Maybe. It just depends," Pelosi replied when The
Huffington Post asked her if "the administration should acknowledge when it targets a U.S. citizen in a drone strike."
Nancy Pelosi says drone strikes on Americans can stay
secret. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said the White House doesn't necessarily have to confess to killing American citizens by unarmed drones.
It all depends on the situation, she said in reply to a Huffington Post reporter who asked if President Obama's administration should acknowledge when it targets a
U.S. citizen in a drone strike, the Washington Examiner reported. "Maybe, it just depends," she reportedly said. "People just want to be protected."
She also said that such disclosure "depends on the timing, because that's right — it's all about the timing."
Nancy Pelosi: Push for Gun Control While
We Have the Chance. The measures, which largely reflect recommendations by President Obama and Vice President Biden, include universal background checks,
"high capacity" magazine bans, an "assault weapons" ban, a "crack down on gun trafficking," laws against "straw purchases," and mandatory gun safety training programs.
It should be noted that none of these would have prevented the tragic Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.
Nancy Pelosi To Fox News
Sunday: It's A 'False Argument To Say We Have A Spending Problem'. On Fox News Sunday [2/10/2013], House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)
told Fox News Channel anchor Chris Wallace that the ongoing debate about a balanced approach to deficit reduction should not place undue emphasis on spending
cuts. She said that it is "almost a false argument" to say that Washington has a "spending problem." Pelosi noted that there have been "plenty of
spending cuts," and budgetary priorities like education and food safety must be protected.
Pelosi: First Amendment Protects Right To Bear Arms.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on "Fox News Sunday" was confused, claiming it's the first, not second amendment that protects Americans' right to bear
arms. [Video clip]
Nancy Pelosi Meets with Barbra
Streisand, Plots Dem House Comeback. Hollywood Democrats aren't happy that one half of Congress remains out of their
control. So a gaggle of big name celebrity donors, including Barbra Streisand, convened at the home of liberal activist/producer
Norman Lear to plot a comeback strategy and watch a little must-see TV.
Nancy Pelosi Meets with Barbra
Streisand, Plots Dem House Comeback. More than 40 Hollywood politicos — including Barbra Streisand, James
Brolin and Haim Saban — gathered Thursday night [1/31/2013] at a closed-door meeting at Norman Lear's Westside mansion,
where they heard Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi lay out the party's plans for recapturing the House in the 2014 mid-terms.
Pelosi: More Gun
Control Needed Because 'We Took an Oath to Protect and Defend'. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said action
must be taken in the aftermath of the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School because members of Congress took an oath to "protect
and defend," although the actual oath says to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States...."
Nancy Pelosi coins a new term for gun
control. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has adopted a new term for gun control, "gun violence prevention," in
hopes that the euphemism will make it easier to marshal public opinion in favor of new gun laws as well as other policies designed to prevent
Where Are The Jobs, Mr. President?
When Nancy Pelosi asked that question in 2003, the unemployment rate was 6.1 percent. The unemployment rate for blacks was
11 percent. GDP, however, was growing at a 7.2 percent clip, and barely more than a year later the unemployment rate had
fallen to 4.9 percent. That didn't stop Pelosi and her allies, including many in the news media, from repeatedly asking the
above question and proclaiming the jobs picture to be the worst since Herbert Hoover.
upcoming fiscal deals should include greater tax increase. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Sunday [1/6/2013]
that recent tax increases are "not enough" to solve the country's fiscal problems and argued that additional hikes should be included
in upcoming deficit-reduction deals.
Too bad she's not this enthusiastic about the Second Amendment.
urges Obama to sidestep Congress, use 14th Amendment to raise debt ceiling. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi shared her
own idea Sunday on how to avoid a government shutdown should the Republican House and President Barack Obama find themselves unable to
reach an agreement on raising the debt ceiling: invoke the 14th Amendment to the Constitution.
decision to alter congressional class photo. The Democratic women of the 113th Congress had gathered on the Capitol steps
Thursday [1/3/2013] for a picture, snapped by The Associated Press, marking the start of the session. Four lawmakers, though, were late to
the shoot. So Pelosi's office added their faces after the fact — then emailed that image around to reporters and posted
it on her Flickr page.
Pelosi's photo trickery enhances her caucus. [Scroll down] The photos get taken. Everyone runs to get back inside
the Capitol where the hot air is. But just then here comes Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who's very important, you know. [...] And with
her is Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, who's loud and one of the few surviving Texas Democrats. So, she's important and a couple of other
nobodies. Alas, no more group to join. But wait! Thanks to the wonders of technology there is a solution. The
photographer takes the four tardy ladies' photo. And Pelosi's office Photoshops them into the back row.
Kathleen the Terrible. Among the gifts Nancy Pelosi brings to the
House of Representatives is her ability to draw a hearty guffaw from the most jaded observer of American politics. This talent for comedy was on display
last Wednesday [12/12/2012] when she told a group of toadeaters disguised as journalists that she belongs to the anti-corruption party. The Orwellian
absurdity of the claim, combined with her trademark vapid expression, was enough to make a cat laugh.
Nancy Pelosi pushes
Democrats as the anti-corruption party. How well did Pelosi succeed in "ending the culture of corruption"? Rep. Shelly
Berkley, D-Nev., is leaving D.C. after losing a Senate campaign largely because of ethical problems, including how she used her position as lawmaker to
prevent the closure of a kidney care center — a kidney care center that paid her husband almost three quarters of a million dollars a year.
Pelosi supports giving Obama 'unilateral control' to raise debt ceiling. During a press conference today [11/30/2012], House
Minority leader Nancy Pelosi signaled that she supported "unilateral control" for the President over the country's debt limit. "Do
you support President Obama having the power to unilaterally increase the debt limit as Secretary Geithner proposed?" asked a reporter.
"Yes." Pelosi answered shortly.
Pelosi: Give Obama Power to
Personally Lift Debt Limit to Infinity. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said on Friday [11/30/2012] that
Congress should hand over to President Barack Obama the power to unilateral increase the limit on the U.S. government's debt. In
effect, under the plan Pelosi is endorsing, the only limit on the national debt would be President Obama's willingness to borrow money in
the name of American taxpayers.
Welcome to Obamcare: The
United Socialist States of America. I do realize there are changes that needed to be made in our medical system because it is/was
getting so out of hand but did we really need this? I was really terrified when Pelosi said "well we have to pass it so we can know what's
in it." I can't believe the people in her district are so dumb. Really? Are her voters so captivated by her that they don't
pay attention to what she is saying?
suggests it's sexist to question why she's staying as leader. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., announced that
she will run again for the top position in her conference, but she was offended by the suggestion that she's too old to continue in the
Nancy Pelosi should step down as House Democratic Leader: There's little doubt that if Pelosi wants the job, she can keep it.
She remains immensely popular with the liberal wing of the House caucus which, if anything, has grown stronger and more unified in the past
two elections. She is also, without question, the best fundraiser among House Democrats (and maybe the second-best fundraiser in the
party). Since coming into party leadership in 2002, Pelosi has raised $328 million, including $85 million in the 2012
election cycle alone, according to Pelosi aides.
'Is it the 11th Amendment? 14th? Whatever... I'm With the Constitution'. House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)
holds her regular weekly press briefing and displays a disturbing lack of knowledge of the constitution she has sworn for decades to
protect and defend.
Nancy Pelosi's Secret CAIR
Fundraiser. For Pelosi to appear at a fundraiser with Nihad Awad is as revolting, and should be as newsworthy,
as if she had appeared at a fundraiser with David Duke or Bull Connor. The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is
an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department. CAIR operatives
have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups.
Pelosi holds secret
fundraiser with Islamists, Hamas-linked groups. Democratic leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi headlined a high-dollar fundraiser
in May that was attended by U.S.-based Islamist groups and individuals linked by the U.S. government to the Hamas jihad group and to
the Egypt-based Muslim Brotherhood movement. The donors at the undisclosed May 16 event included Nihad Awad, the co-founder
of the Council on American Islamic Relations, according to data provided by the nonpartisan Investigative Project on Terrorism.
Voters don't like Nancy Pelosi. Only Senate Majority
Leader Harry Reid has a lower favorable rating, 25 percent, but his unfavorables aren't as bad as Pelosi's, at 47 percent.
Nancy Pelosi says she read Obamacare
bill. Problem is, while Pelosi told the Chronicle that there was no bill yet on March 9, 2010, that's not quite accurate.
Congress had not enacted a final measure, although later that month it would do so and Obama would sign the bill. But the House and Senate
passed versions of Obamacare in 2009. This is a great example of Pelosi's insider-speak and her insistence of arguing a dubious
technicality — yes, there was no final bill — making her both unintelligible and open to parody.
"Validation" Of Romney Will "Take Us To A Period Before Lyndon Johnson". In an interview with former
Gov. Jennifer Granholm (D-Mich.) on her Current TV show, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Cali) declared President
Obama will win the election in November. The former Speaker of the House went as far to say speculating otherwise is "remote."
says GOP has 'nerve' to ask if Americans are better off under Obama. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) blasted Republicans
on Friday afternoon [9/21/2012] for continuing to assert that Americans are not better off under President Obama's administration, and said every
economic indicator shows that the country is in a much better spot today than it was four years ago. "The Republicans have the nerve to pose
that question, when if you look back to four years ago this very week ... you would know that we are indeed fundamentally and unquestionably better
off as a country today," Pelosi said on the House floor.
Nancy Pelosi Faults Federal Agents for
Enforcing the Law. Pelosi attributes increased deportation under Obama to federal agents, and see Obama's DREAM Act
executive order as the solution to this 'problem.'
security takes a back seat to Obama's political survival. Even in the face of a plea from Nancy Pelosi, President Obama insisted on subordinating
the defense needs of the United States to his reelection efforts. This is an under-reported lesson from Glenn Thrush's new e-book, Obama's Last Stand. [...]
Note that Pelosi's concern was keeping local financial contributors happy. If she was concerned about the impact of sequestration on our armed services and
national security, she did not, according to Thrush's account, make this her pitch to President Obama.
The Pelosis are Who We Thought They Were. [Scroll down] The couple has refused to hire unions to
work in its vineyard and other business interests, even as Pelosi has collected $365,500 in political contributions from labor groups in 2012. She has also
railed against bankers despite the fact that her husband's colleagues are her staunchest allies, contributing $500,000 in 2012, according to the Center for Responsive
Politics. Hambrecht, Pelosi's UFL partner, is in the latter group. He has contributed $160,000 to Democratic candidates since 2007, including $22,000 to
Pelosi and her Super PAC, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
Coach: Pelosis in Breach of Contract. A new lawsuit brought by a former NFL coach charges the
husband of House minority leader Nancy Pelosi with breach of contract. Dennis Green, former head coach of the Minnesota Vikings and Arizona
Cardinals, is accusing Paul Pelosi and business partner Bill Hambrecht of failing to honor the $1.5 million contract he signed to coach Pelosi's
football team, the Sacramento Mountain Lions.
Civil Contempt Lawsuit Against Holder About Vote Suppression. Fast & Furious was a gun walking scheme set in place by the government.
It caused numerous guns to walk into the hands of Mexican drug cartels, resulting in the deaths of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and 300+ Mexicans.

documents: Illinois state workers forced to attend Pelosi, Jesse Jackson Jr. event on taxpayer dime. Documents and a whistle-blower affidavit obtained
by The Daily Caller charge that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Illinois Democratic Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., and Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr., participated in an
unethical — and possibly illegal — effort to force 76 employees of an Illinois state agency to engage in political activity on the
taxpayers' dime. According to the whistle-blower, Rev. Jackson also encouraged the government employees to load first-generation and low-income college
students up with student loan debt — because Democrats in Congress, he allegedly promised, would eventually pass laws to forgive that debt later.
"[T]hose people will continue to vote Democratic," Jackson Sr. said, according to the whistle-blower.
Nancy Pelosi's greatest "it's a

Nancy Pelosi accuses Republicans of
trying to kill children with E. coli. Republicans don't want to spend money to protect children from the E. coli bacteria, said House Minority
Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) during a campaign event Monday [8/6/2012] in support of a Democrat running for a Florida congressional seat.
Unfit to Govern. Nancy Pelosi, the
leader who warned that we were losing "500 million jobs a month" without the stimulus bill and who said "God bless them" regarding
Occupy Wall Street but condemned the tea party as "AstroTurf," has declared that the Republican Party supports E. coli.
True, it's not news when Pelosi mangles the facts. But until her colleagues demote her, she remains the leader of House
Pelosi 'Swears' Spirit of
Susan B. Anthony Spoke to Her in White House. [Scroll down] "My chair was getting crowded in," said Pelosi.
"I swear this happened, never happened before, it never happened since." "My chair was getting crowded in and I couldn't figure
out what it was, it was like this," she said. "And then I realized Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott,
Alice Paul, Sojourner Truth, you name it, they were all in that chair, they were," said Pelosi. "More than I named and I could hear
them say: 'At last we have a seat at the table.' And then they were gone." This was not the only time Pelosi has told
this story. On June 6 of this year she told it during an event celebrating her 25 years of political service.
Obama Has Created Many "Expansions Of Freedom". Citing ObamaCare, the Lilly Ledbetter Act and the repeal of Don't
Ask, Don't Tell, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Cali.) says President Obama has enacted many "expansions of freedom."
In a speech to Campus Progress, where she received an award, Pelosi said the Affordable Care Act is "about life, liberty and the

Top 10 most dangerous liberals. [#10] Nancy
Pelosi: It will take years, if not decades, to undo the damage done by the spending spree during Pelosi's tenure as speaker of the House.
From 2006 to 2010, the nation racked up trillions of dollars in debt, largely due to spending bills initiated by Pelosi's Democratic House majority.
And without her strong-armed tactics, Obamacare never would have become law.
Welcome to the welfare state: Obama's 'badge of honor'.
Nancy Pelosi says President Obama should embrace the "Food Stamp President" label as a badge of honor — and he has.
Food stamp use has risen 100 percent in three years. Welfare reform has been rolled back through work requirement waivers.
The USDA holds "food stamp parties" to hook seniors, and Obama's Ag secretary calls welfare "economic stimulus."
Pelosi: Bill That
Would Defund Obamacare, Planned Parenthood Is 'An Immorality'. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said
on Thursday [7/19/2012] that a Republican appropriations bill that would defund Planned Parenthood and the Patient Affordable
Care Act (AKA Obamacare) is "an immorality." On Wednesday, Rep. Denny Rehberg (R-Mont.), chairman of the House Subcommittee
on Labor, Health and Human Services, introduced legislation for fiscal year 2013 that would cut $6.3 billion and prohibit any
further funding to implement Obamcare and would also cut off federal funding for Planned Parenthood, an organization which says
that it did 329,445 abortions in 2010.
The Awakened Giant Likes Tea. By inexplicably siding with the court's
left wing and upholding the president's signature achievement — government-run socialized health care — Roberts has given Democrats
a shiny election-year package adorned with a judicial-activist bow. The excessive celebration has begun. Nancy Pelosi immediately released a
statement gloating, "We made history. ... We completed unfinished business!"
Pelosi whinnies from the pastures. If so many of today's
incumbent politicians are yesterday, former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is the Day Before. Surely the icing on the cake in 2010 midterm
elections was the end to Nancy Pelosi as House Speaker. Though she's tried ever since to advance the philosophy that being Minority
Leader for the 112th Congress is just as good, Pelosi's clout went out with the tide of 63 lost Dem seats.
Vast Right Wing Conspiracy Part Duh.
Revealing yet another portion of the chamber of horrors that is her power obsessed mind, Pelosi channeled Hillary Clinton, experiencing a
vicarious flashback to Clinton's infamous "vast right wing conspiracy" moment. Never mind that there are hundreds of Mexicans and an
American Border Control Agent dead as the result of sophisticated automatic weapons ending up in the hands of known, hardened criminals.
It should not matter to voters that this is a result of the current administration's irresponsible, scandalous Fast and Furious gun walking
operation. Finding out how that happened and who is ultimately responsible for those deaths is not important.

Pelosi: If mandate
ruled unconstitutional, rest of health law won't work. If the Supreme Court rules the individual mandate unconstitutional, House
Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said the rest of the health care law wouldn't work from a "financial standpoint."
Rove: Pelosi 'sounds like Mad Red
Queen' with arrest threat. Karl Rove said Rep. Nancy Pelosi was "dead wrong" when she suggested Wednesday that she could have had
him arrested. "The only way I could have been arrested is if the House adopted the resolution, which it did not," the Republican operative
and former adviser to President George W. Bush told Fox News on Wednesday night [6/20/2012].
Republicans slam Pelosi theory on Holder contempt push. A day after Nancy Pelosi accused Republicans of targeting Attorney
General Eric Holder because of his department's crackdown on state voter ID laws, GOP lawmakers dismissed the claim as "hogwash" while
Democrats kept their distance. Asked about Pelosi's claim at Thursday's [6/21/2012] press briefing, White House Press Secretary Jay
Carney would not say that the administration shares her theory.
Pelosi: Justice for Brian Terry
Isn't As Important As Jobs. This morning the buzz about former Speaker Nancy Pelosi revolves around her statement that she could
have arrested Karl Rove at any time. But if you dig deeper into the story, you come across a quote that shows just how heartless this woman
Pelosi Says Contempt
Charge a Right-Wing Scheme on Voter Rights. House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi blasted Wednesday's contempt proceedings over the
Oversight and Government Reform committee's Fast and Furious investigation as a "shameful display of abuse of power" by House Republicans.
She claims it's part of a right-wing "over-the-edge" scheme to strike back against Attorney General Eric Holder for defending voting rights
across the country.
The Editor says...
I hesitate to quote from (or link to) ABC News on this web site, but I do so in this case to illustrate that the article above is a news report with the
reporter's opinion seamlessly injected here and there. The statement that Eric Holder is defending voting rights across the country is a
canard, because the right of living U.S. citizens (18 or over) to vote one time in each election are not under attack anywhere, as far as I know,
and there is therefore no need for Eric Holder to go on the defense.
No, Ms. Pelosi, We Aren't Suppressing, but Holder is Pushing
Fraud. Among legal voters, the order is a political wash: It might attract some votes from legal Hispanic citizens,
but it also will even further turn off another block of voters who hate amensty or who object to flagrant executive overreacch. But by
providing a sort of documentation to 800,000 new people, it also makes it easier for those 800,000 to vote. Holder and Obama know this.
They approve of it. And Pelosi knows it.
Pelosi: Obamacare Is 'A Right'. House Minority Leader
Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) said at her Thursday [6/7/2012] press briefing that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act —
AKA Obamacre — is not a privilege but "a right." At the same time, Pelosi also said Social Security and Medicare
Obamacare Will Be Upheld 6-3, 'Because I Know the Constitution'. [Scroll down] Pelosi, in reference
to how the nine-judge court will rule, said, "6-3. That's it. 6-3." She was then asked why she was so
confident about her prediction, "Do you have a crystal ball or what is your confidence — you wrote the bill
but why do you have this confidence?" Pelosi said: "Because I know the Constitution. This bill is
ironclad. It is ironclad."
Pelosi Says 'Free,' Reach for Your Wallet. On Tuesday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi explained to the
Commonwealth Club the reason Washington passed Obamacare. Even if everyone in America "loved" his own health care
plan, Pelosi argued, Congress had to pass President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act because American health care was
"unsustainable financially." Yes, Pelosi actually believes Washington had to get involved in health care to reduce
its cost. The Democratic leader then listed some of Obamacare's new benefits: "free" annual checkups and
preventive care and the ability of adult children to stay on their parents' policies until age 26.
San Francisco to rename street
after Pelosi. "Middle Drive East" which connects Martin Luthjer King Jr. Drive and John F Kennedy Drive in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park
will now be renamed in honor of Pelosi and her 25 years of service in Congress. San Francisco is the second city to name a street after Pelosi.
Obama budget defeated 99-0 in
Senate. President Obama's budget suffered a second embarrassing defeat Wednesday, when senators voted 99-0 to reject it. Coupled with
the House's rejection in March, 414-0, that means Mr. Obama's budget has failed to win a single vote in support this year. Republicans forced the
vote by offering the president's plan on the Senate floor.
Reid, Pelosi: America's Least Favorite Politicians.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) may occupy some of the most powerful positions in
Congress, but they're also two of the most reviled American politicians, according to a new Rasmussen poll.
Still Clueless: What Is the Tea Party?
For the Obama camp and mainstream media to have the unmitigated gall to say the Occupy movement is equal to the Tea Party makes for off-the-chain
arrogance and shameless lying. [...] No one has been raped at a Tea Party. Rapes are occurring at OWS. No property, government or private,
has been vandalized or destroyed by Tea Party patriots. OWS has been trashing businesses. No feces has been thrown or used to make a
point at a Tea Party, but OWS dumped a bucket of feces in a public building. No arrests have been made at a Tea Party, but we have over 7,000 at
OWS. And yet, Democrat Nancy Pelosi said God bless OWS while calling the Tea Party Nazi.

Reversal 'Not Political at All,' 'Nothing to Do with Money'. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said President Barack Obama's
embrace of same-sex "marriage" on Wednesday was not political "at all," nor due to concerns over fundraising from the LGBT community, adding that she's
not "big in the bundler crowd." At her weekly press conference with reporters on Thursday, Pelosi was asked whether fundraising may have affected
the president's decision to endorse homosexual "marriage," and if she had spoken to friends, donors and "bundlers" who now are more enthusiastic for
Obama because of his apparent "evolution" on the issue.
Nancy Pelosi's top 10 gaffes.
Here are some of the most outrageous claims made by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.
then Speaker of the House Pelosi Lie About Her Knowledge of Waterboarding? Yes she did, according to a new book by the
CIA's former counterterrorism chief, Jose Rodriguez.
denies lying about waterboarding. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., reiterated that she never received a briefing
on waterboarding, contrary to the former CIA counterterrorism head who says he personally briefed her on the interrogation techniques.
"This is once again totally false," Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill told The Washington Examiner. "The independent CIA Inspector
General conducted a review and the findings are consistent with what Leader Pelosi has maintained all along." In 2009, Pelosi
denied knowing that the CIA waterboarded high-value terrorist detainees. "We were not — I repeat — were not
told that waterboarding or any of these other enhanced interrogation methods were used," she told reporters.
Pelosi Seeks To Rewrite First Amendment. Leave it to Nancy Pelosi, who said we had to pass ObamaCare in
order to find out what's in it, to suggest that a document we had well over two centuries to read was misinterpreted by
the court in its Citizens United decision wherein it held that corporations and unions can spend unlimited amounts on
political advocacy as long as they do not coordinate with candidates or campaigns.
GOP Wants 'Subsidies for Big Oil,' Democrats Want to 'Prevent Breast Cancer'. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi
(D-Calif.) said women's health care is the "old favorite target" of Republicans when it comes to budget cuts, adding that while
the GOP wants "to protect subsidies for big oil," Democrats want to "prevent breast cancer" and "immunize our children."
Keep the First Amendment. The phrase "stunning
development" is used far too often in our politics, but here is an item that can be described in no other way: Nancy Pelosi and congressional
Democrats, frustrated by the fact that the Bill of Rights interferes with their desire to muzzle their political opponents, have proposed to repeal the
First Amendment. That is precisely what the so-called People's Rights Amendment would do.
Nancy Pelosi's Constitution.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi — the speaker of the House when Obamacare was passed — has
an op-ed in the Chicago Tribune highlighting her constitutional confusion. [...] Nowhere in her column does Pelosi
actually grapple with two issues: the fact that Article III, giving Congress the power to regulate the
jurisdiction of federal courts, is actually in the Constitution; she does not identify the constitutionally
enumerated power that gives federal government the authority mandate the purchase of health insurance or
otherwise implement Obamacare.
America's least-liked congressional leader is... On the other side of the like scale, Pelosi is the easy winner
of the most unfavorable rating, pulling away with nearly two-out-of-three (60%), and trailed by, of course, another Democrat,
Reid with 48% unfavorable. Next highest unfavorable is Boehner at 42% with McConnell the winner of sorts of least
disliked at 36% unfavorable. The same surveys found that a depressing 48% of likely voters believe that most of the
435 members of Congress are corrupt.
Pelosi: 'Congress Has Always Been A
Mockery'. "Congress has always been a mockery," Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) declared in an interview on "The Charlie
Rose Show" Monday night [4/2/2012]. Commenting on the public's current low opinion of Congress, Pelosi said "Congress has
always been a mockery since the beginning of our country": "Congress has always — let`s put this in
perspective — Congress has always been a mockery since the beginning of our country and if you looked at the
history of it, they`ve always been fighting over one thing or another."
Yes, Nancy Pelosi, We are Serious. [Scroll down] She
seemed to have been taken by surprise by the question in the chaotic hubbub of the announcement that the Senate might pass its version of the Patient
Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA, or the ACA, or Obamacare, or Public Law 111-148). Or at least she was stunned by the idea that anyone
would question the government's "right" to conceive of and pass such a law. No one else was questioning the legality of such a law. All
other questions patronized her alleged wisdom about its necessity. Her flunky press spokesman (with the ironic title of communications director)
simply repeated the answer, and shoed [sic] the annoying reporter away.
Congresswoman Pelosi, We're Serious: On the Constitutionality of Obamacare. Several times during the
debate and deliberation, my mind harkened back to the words of former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. Remarking
on the original Obamacare bill, Pelosi infamously said that first "we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what
is in it." Even more outrageous was another Pelosi observation, especially given the pivotal role of the
Supreme Court. In October 2009, Pelosi was asked by a reporter if the healthcare legislation was constitutional.
Remembering Nancy Pelosi's Syria Junket.
Five years ago this coming Wednesday, House Majority leader Nancy Pelosi defied President Bush's request and his strategy
isolating Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad by going to Damascus. "We do not encourage and, in fact, we discourage members
of Congress to make such visits to Syria," the White House spokesman said. "This is a country that is a state sponsor
of terror." Pelosi would have none of that. She had known evil and to her, he resided in the White House.
The Syrian dictator, however, was a reforming, Western educated eye doctor.
held over 400 fundraisers in one year. NPR reporter Andrea Seabrook recently toured with Nancy Pelosi
during a fundraising swing through Texas covering two days, five or six events, three cities. When asked by
Seabrook how often she attends fundraisers a week, she replies, "A lot, you know. They're either on the phone or
attending events. But I think they've said this year I've attended almost 400 fundraisers in nearly 40 cities."
'Deserves a Great Deal of Credit for the Courage' To Break House Rules. You would think that Nancy "drain the
swamp" Pelosi, the minority leader, would reprimand the Congressman Rush for making a fool of himself and disgracing the
Congress. But no.
Has 'No Idea' If Supreme Court Will Hold Individual Mandate Constitutional. House Minority Leader Nancy
Pelosi (D-Calif.) who in 2009 rebuked a reporter for asking her where the Constitution authorized Congress to require
people to buy health insurance — "Are you serious? Are you serious?" she said then — now says she
has "no idea" if the Supreme Court will rule that the mandate is in fact constitutional.
Pelosi: Food Stamp President 'Badge
Of Honor'. Speaking at Jesse Jackson's Rainbow Push Coalition, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi addressed recent
comments by Newt Ginginch referring to Obama as the "Food Stamp President" because more Americans have fallen into poverty and had to
seek government assistance. According to Ms. Pelosi, this was a "Badge of Honor".
Obamacare Allows You to Quit Your Job and Become 'Whatever'. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.)
said Thursday [3/22/2012] that Obamacare facilitates the type of "liberation" that the "Founders had in mind" because it
allows you to quit your job and become a "photographer," a "writer," a "musician" — or "whatever."
"As you hear from these stories, this is a liberation," Pelosi said at a Capitol Hill news conference Thursday.
"This is what our founders had in mind — ever expanding opportunity for people.
Pelosi: We're being ruled by the dumbest people in America. Levin says that when it seems like stuff the
Democrats say can't get any stranger, it does. And this time it's Nancy Pelosi arguing that ObamaCare fulfills the
Declaration of Independence. Yeah, she really said that.
Give Us ObamaCare, Or Give Us Death. As the Supreme Court hears oral arguments on the constitutionality of ObamaCare,
the former House speaker says its purpose is to guarantee our inalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

the former speaker struggling to win back the House majority, a favorable rating. [Senate Majority Leader
Harry] Reid's favorable rating is lower, at 24 percent.
The Bell Tolls for Breitbart.
The president of NOW, an organization that should have lost all credibility when it continued to support Bill
Clinton, announced that the bishops really want the police power of the state to prevent women from taking birth
control. Still, even they must have known that this wasn't winning over a lot of the skeptics, and so Nancy
Pelosi offered up space to a Georgetown University Law school student named Sandra Fluke, who whined that because
that Catholic university doesn't provide contraceptive coverage in its health care insurance she had to pay $3,000
over a three year period for it. Representative Pelosi trembled with joy to have a dog and pony show artiste
like this to make her point to the low information voters.
2008: Bush to Blame for High Gas Prices; Pelosi 2012: Wall Street to Blame for High Gas Prices. Obviously
the Democrats are worried their golden boy will be taking heat for skyrocketing gas prices so this week they've gone on the
offensive. Their diversionary tactics will probably work since the media will dutifully carry their water.

endorses Rep. Jackson for reelection. Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) has endorsed Rep.
Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-Ill.), whose reelection bid has been plagued by an ethics investigation. Pelosi joins
President Obama and several other top Democrats in their endorsement of the Chicago lawmaker as he goes up against
former Democratic Rep. Debbie Halvorson (Ill.) in a fierce primary battle next month.

Govt. Should Require Church To Pay for Birth Control. House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said
Thursday morning [2/16/2012] that the government should require self-insured religious institutions, such as the
Catholic church in Washington, D.C., to directly pay for contraception and abortifacients.
Pelosi: Religious Freedom is an "Excuse" When It Comes to Women's Health. House Minority Leader Nancy
Pelosi said in a press conference Thursday [2/9/2012] that Republicans are using religious freedom as an excuse to
change the law in a way that will be harmful to women's health. This was in regard to the pushback against
Catholic employees being required to cover birth control and abortifacients, which violates Church doctrine.
This week's grand prize for doublespeak goes to Nancy Pelosi.
'I am going to stick with fellow Catholics' in supporting Obama birth control mandate. Even as
the United States' Catholic bishops have launched an all-out campaign against the Obama administration's birth
control mandate and urged their flocks to resistance, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has invoked the support
of "fellow Catholics" to justify her position in favor of the mandate. ... The comment came as at least
164 Catholic bishops across the country, representing over 90% of the country's dioceses, have blasted the
mandate, in many cases ensuring that letters were read to the faithful during Sunday Mass calling the mandate
unconstitutional and unjust.
might have skirted House ethics rules on campaign solicitations. The Democratic leader was holding
a briefing to promote a campaign finance disclosure bill when she said she was "asking people to contribute to us,
if they want to elect more reformers to Congress." House ethics rules prohibit members of Congress from
soliciting campaign donations in House office buildings, including the Capitol Visitor Center, where Pelosi was
speaking. A section of the U.S. criminal code also prohibits fund-raising in federal buildings.
she was discussing Obamacare she said: "But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it,
away from the fog of the controversy." Unemployment checks create jobs? Really? They do
according to Nancy: "It creates jobs faster than almost any other initiative you can name." Fossil
fuels make a great alternative to — fossil fuels. Yes she said this: "I believe in natural
gas as a clean, cheap alternative to fossil fuels," she said at one point. Natural gas "is cheap, abundant
and clean compared to fossil fuels," she said at another.
Oops, she did it
again. Nancy Pelosi is "glad" that President Obama ignored the Advice and Consent requirement
of the Constitution on his recent appointments to the National Labor Relations Board and the new bureaucratic
beast, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Ms. Pelosi has shown her contempt for the Constitution
before. When asked where in the Constitution she found the power to pass Obamacare, Pelosi said, "Are
you serious?" President Obama shows a similar contempt about whether the Constitution constrains him.
Throw 'Em All
Out... And Good Riddance! [Scroll down] Another tool of corruption is the IPO (which,
according to [Peter] Schweizer, means "Invest in Politicians Often"). Companies about to go public invite
certain strategically-placed politicians to make the first purchases in the offering, before the stockbrokers
or anyone else. You can't really call it a payoff. Nancy Pelosi is a particularly avid IPO fan.
She and her husband made an incredibly large purchase of the Visa IPO amounting to 10% of their stock portfolio,
raking off nearly a 50% profit on the original purchase in only two days. (Nancy Pelosi also had a station
built on a light rail line in San Francisco near one of her office buildings. Real estate manipulation is
yet another tool of the privileged class.)
Did Pelosi Commit Blackmail?
House Democrat Leader Nancy Pelosi recently said that if Newt Gingrich is the Republican nominee, she will
disclose what Americans do not now know about him out of confidential House Ethics Committee investigations.
Newt noted that this was an ethical violation itself, which caused Pelosi to back off her earlier threat, but
there is more at issue than just House Ethics Committee rules. The House Democrat Leader may well have
Another Load of Trickle-Up Economics.
So... if rich people opening businesses aren't creating jobs in the private sector, then who is? For the
answer, we turn to an even greater economic genius, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA, current net worth
$35.5 million.) Yesterday she repeated a theory she made famous some years ago, and which has become
one of the bedrock principles of the Obama Administration: jobs are created by people who don't have jobs,
through the magic of unemployment insurance, whose extension will create 600,000 jobs.
Extending Unemployment Benefits Would Create '600,000 Jobs'. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi
(D-Calif.) said that extending unemployment benefits would add "600,000 jobs to our economy." She also
said that the money from unemployment benefits creates a "safety net" for the U.S. economy because it "injects
demand into the economy — creating jobs."
Down and Dirty. [Scroll down] Of course, an endless parade of dirty Democratic scandals earlier this year had
already completely obliterated what was left of Pelosi's Mop-and-Glo reformer image. She and other liberal
feminists rallied around disgraced Twitter freak and former N.Y. Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner even as evidence
mounted that he lied to them. And used taxpayer resources and government buildings while sexting. And
recklessly neglected to ensure that his Internet paramours were of legal age.
Ridicules Catholics' "Conscience Thing" on Abortion Requirement. Catholics who believe the federal
government should not be able to compel healthcare providers to perform abortions "have this conscience thing"
that they really need to overcome, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told the Washington Post
recently. Otherwise, she said, women "could die" from a lack of access to abortion services.
Nancy Pelosi Wants
A Federal Babysitting Service. Buried in a Washington Post story about Herman Cain calling Nancy Pelosi,
"Princess Nancy" is a new policy idea that Pelosi has been pitching recently during her short tour through California.
"One of the great pieces of unfinished business is high-quality child care; I wonder why we just can't do that," she
recently said to a California audience.
List Of Conflict Of Interest Dems. The brewing scandal is complicated, but here's the Reader's
Digest version: After a Pelosi staffer left to lobby on behalf of credit-card giant Visa, Pelosi delayed
bringing to the House floor a bill to end lucrative "swipe fees" for Visa and other credit providers. The
bill couldn't have come at a worse time for Visa. It planned to launch an $18 billion public stock
offering, so stalling Hill action became a priority. The San Francisco-based company curried favor with
Pelosi by pumping cash into her re-election efforts, earning its CEO a rare one-on-one meeting with the speaker.
At the same time, Visa offered her husband a VIP cut of the IPO.
them all out' sounds like a good start. Hoover Institution scholar Peter Schweizer is making huge
waves this week with advance coverage of his book "Throw Them All Out" on "60 Minutes" and in a Newsweek
piece by Peter Boyer. CBS and Newsweek focused on Schweizer's contention that because Congress exempts
itself from laws it imposes on the rest of us, senators and representatives can engage in insider stock trading
with impunity. Among the most outrageous examples, according to Schweizer, is that of former House Speaker
Nancy Pelosi, who, with her millionaire husband, bought between $1 million and $5 million (members of
Congress only have to report such investments in broad categories rather than nickels and dimes like the rest
of us) in an initial public offering from Visa.
questioned in CBS report. [Steve] Kroft asked Pelosi why she and her investor husband, Paul Pelosi,
bought an initial public offering of stock in Visa, the San Francisco-based credit card company, in March of 2008.
The same month, former House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers, D-Mich., introduced the Credit Card Fair
Fee Act, which would have given merchants the power to negotiate lower fees with credit card companies. The
bill, hostile to the credit card industry, was passed by the committee but never brought to the floor. Pelosi
was speaker at the time, and controlled which legislation came to a vote.

says that not creating jobs is better than creating nonunion jobs. But then she also believes unemployment
checks grow the economy.
Top 10 Looniest Liberals: [#2]
Nancy Pelosi: She left a legacy of debt and out-of-control spending during her four years as House
speaker. The arrogance of the Left has rarely been more transparent than when Pelosi uttered these infamous
words about the pending ObamaCare legislation: "We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what
is in it, away from the fog of controversy."
Proof that Obama is out of his mind:
Pelosi was 'one of the best' Speakers, will be back in 2013. President Obama on Saturday [10/29/2011]
said Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was a great House Speaker and that she will get that job back after the 2012
elections. "I am biased, but I think Nancy was one of the best Speakers of the House this country ever had,"
Obama said after Pelosi had introduced him at the National Italian American Foundation gala.
disclosure belated in husband's land deal. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's husband, a real
estate developer and investment banker, stands to make millions of dollars in a previously undisclosed residential
real estate project in California as a partner with the father of a woman Mrs. Pelosi helped become ambassador to
Hungary, records show. Paul F. Pelosi's investment in Russell Ranch is worth at least $5 million and
possibly as much as $25 million in a deal put together by his friend and longtime business associate, Angelo
Tsakopoulos, patriarch of a multimillion-dollar real estate development firm, according to Mrs. Pelosi's latest
Supports Occupy Wall Street Movement. House Democratic Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said
she supports the growing nationwide Occupy Wall Street movement, which began on the streets of downtown New
York City in mid-September. ... Pelosi added that the failure of TARP, commonly known as the bank bailout, to
add liquidity to the Main Street marketplace is fueling Americans' animosity towards Wall Street.
The Editor says...
TARP was Obama's idea. If it's a failure (and it is), your beef is with him, not the banks!

the government's green jobs subsidies apart from the Democrats' friends and family rewards program.
Liberals and Magical Math.
Nancy Pelosi has made what could quite possibly be the most imbecilic utterances ... regarding job creation
and stimulating the economy:
• Unemployment benefits "injects demand into the economy."
• Unemployment benefits "is a job creator."
• "Unemployment insurance, the economists tell us, return $2 for every $1 that is put
out there for unemployment insurance."
• It creates jobs to help reduce the deficit.
• "This is one of the biggest stimuluses to our economy. Economists will tell you this
money is spent quickly. It injects demand into the economy, and is job creating."
• Unemployment insurance "creates jobs faster than almost any other initiative you can name
because, again, it is money that is needed for families to survive, and it is spent. So it has a double
benefit. It helps those who have lost their jobs, but it also is a job creator."
• "It is the biggest bang for the buck when you do food stamps and
unemployment insurance. The biggest bang for the buck."
Nancy Pelosi: 'You
can kiss Medicare goodbye'. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi held a mid-morning press conference
Thursday [07/28/2011], sharply denouncing Speaker John Boehner's debt limit plan, which will come up for a vote
later in the day. If Boehner's proposal becomes law, Pelosi said, "You can kiss Medicare goodbye."
'Life on this planet'
about to change. That thoughtful observer of the passing parade, Nancy Pelosi, weighed
in on the "debt ceiling" negotiations the other day: "What we're trying to do is save the world
from the Republican budget. We're trying to save life on this planet as we know it today."
It's always good to have things explained in terms we simpletons can understand.

Tom Friedman — who knows a bit about Hezbollah — calls the tea partiers the "Hezbollah faction" of
the GOP bent on taking the country on a "suicide mission." All over the place, conservative
Republicans are "hostage takers" and "terrorists," "terrorists" and "traitors." They want to "end
life as we know it on this planet," says Nancy Pelosi.
Energy Savings Program Evaporates. The House Chief Administrative Office announced Thursday
[8/4/2011] that the Architect of the Capitol's Office will take over the functions of the program that
expanded House recycling and led to thousands of energy-efficient light bulbs being installed on the Hill.
Reactionary Liberalism. Nancy Pelosi on today's vote: "What we're trying to do is
save the world from the Republican budget. We're trying to save life on this planet as we know it
today." Why? What's so great about life on this planet as we know it today? Let
liberals defend the status quo. We conservatives seek to improve life on this planet.
'My Work in Politics' Is 'An Extension of My Role as a Mom'. House Minority Leader
Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that she views her role in politics as an extension of her role as a
mother. ... Pelosi said, "Look, I am a mom and a grandmother. I view my work in politics as
an extension of my role as a mom. There are things we want to do for our children that are
simply beyond us."
An Aristocracy of
Incompetence. [Scroll down] Consider Nancy Pelosi's explanation of her failure to
connect the dots on waterboarding. Despite other committee members' clear recollections of the
disclosure of enhanced interrogation techniques, Ms. Pelosi claims to have heard no such thing at the same
meetings. Deaf, daydreaming, dumb, whatever — incompetence-based explanations are
apparently acceptable; just don't call her a liar. Pelosi was lying, but banking on incompetence,
clearly of the opinion that indefensible lying is a disqualifier but incompetence no problem. Did
Pelosi detail her low standards while campaigning?
Prediction Backfires? Glitches Arise in Health Law. Back in March 2010, then-House Speaker Nancy
Pelosi, D-Calif, uttered the now-famous words, "We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in
it, away from the fog of the controversy." Pelosi was talking about the health care law, and it appears
she was right about the fact that it was full of unknowns. It turns out that, due to a glitch in the law,
roughly three million middle-income Americans could wind up on Medicaid — which was designed to
assist the country's poorest citizens.

Other Leaders Call on Weiner to Resign. The House Democratic leader, Nancy Pelosi, on
Saturday called on Representative Anthony D. Weiner to resign, underscoring the growing concern among
Democrats that his online exchanges with women had become a distraction for the party.
The Editor says...
The article above appeared in the New York Times, and — by the time I looked
for it — was replaced by something less damaging to the Democratic Party. The
excerpt above came from Lucianne dot com.
Hill's Other Dirty Laundry. [Democratic New York Rep. Anthony] Weiner's dirty laundry is just the
latest addition to a teeming heap of scandal. To wit: The committee still hasn't issued a final
report into last year's reckless Capitol Hill predator du jour, former Democratic New York Rep. Eric
Massa. He's the notorious creep who serially groped male staffers and subjected interns to "tickle
fights" for months while then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi looked the other way. Then there's Beltway
swamp queen Democratic California Rep. Maxine Waters.
Nancy Pelosi, ObamaCare Waiver
Queen. Remember when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi got all wound up in March 2010 about the passage
of ObamaCare and told the assembled conventioneers at the National Association of Counties that the bill's
reforms were going to make health care in America "very, very exciting"? To lift "the fog of
controversy" off the legislation, all Congress had to do, she explained, was "pass the bill so that you can
find out what's in it." ... In fact, it was the same for the members of Congress. The marching order
from the White House was to pass the bill post-haste without reading it, without finding out "what's
Superficiality: A necessary part of
liberal-progressive-socialism. [Scroll down] This combination of presumption and
superficiality was prominently displayed during the Democrat-Socialist Party's ram-rodding Obamacare
through Congress. Nancy Pelosi and her fellow Democrat-Socialists were unconcerned that hardly
anyone had even read the entire bundle of Obamacare legislation, and that no one could foresee all of its
destructive effects. When asked whether certain aspects of Obamacare are unconstitutional, Mrs.
Pelosi said, in effect, that there are no limits on government power; the Federal government (provided that
it is in the hands of liberal-progressives) can do whatever it deems desirable.
Abuse Of Power. Example #1: The Daily Caller last week reported that nearly half of the
204 waivers to the strictures of ObamaCare granted in April were to constituents that generally
supported the Democratic Party's push to pass the legislation. They included the widely reported
granting of 38 waivers — 20% of the total — to upscale restaurants, night clubs and
hotels in former House Speaker and current Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's San Francisco district, including a
hotel that advertises itself as "four diamond luxury in the heart of city." In addition, 31 waivers
were granted to unions, and 27 to health care or drug companies.
Waive Me. Yes, smack dab in the
middle of House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi's congressional district, a cluster of San Francisco small businesses is among
the latest recipients of get-out-of-Obamacare passes. As Jamie Dupree of Cox Media Group and Matthew Boyle of The Daily
Caller pointed out this week, there are at least two dozen Bay Area companies — including bars, restaurants, hotels,
tourist shops, real estate and auto firms — that have secured temporary, one-year reprieves from the federal law.
It's the San Francisco Treat that voters didn't foresee until after the bill was rammed down their throats.
District Gets 20% of Latest ObamaCare Waivers. On the federal level, of course, Former House speaker Nancy
Pelosi was instrumental in securing ObamaCare's passage. And now, for a disproportionate number of businesses in
Pelosi's San Francisco district, ObamaCare is not their problem, not any more. As if having entire states get waivers
wasn't enough of a debacle, now there's this nonsense.
waivers to gourmet restaurants, nightclubs, in Nancy Pelosi's district. Of the 204 new
Obamacare waivers President Barack Obama's administration approved in April, 38 are for fancy eateries, hip
nightclubs and decadent hotels in House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's Northern California district.
That's in addition to the 27 new waivers for health care or drug companies and the 31 new union
waivers Obama's Department of Health and Human Services approved.
Cafes in Pelosi's District Eat Up Health Care Law Waivers. Nancy Pelosi's San Francisco district
was the hands-down winner in the latest set of health care law waivers announced by the Obama administration.
More than three dozen businesses with locations in Pelosi's district were granted temporary exemptions from the
law in April, according to information released by the Department of Health and Human Services. The
businesses — mostly restaurants and cafes, with a few upscale hotels and clubs mixed
in — accounted for about 20 percent of all waivers granted last month.
Pelosi Sends Out Pro-Abortion Fundraising Email
for Mother's Day. Nancy Pelosi and democrats are absolutely outraged that Republicans would
dare pass legislation that will ban taxpayer funded abortions. According to democrats, it's the American
taxpayer's obligation to pay for abortion.
Pelosi and Progressive
Neo-Leninism. During the healthcare debate, then-Speaker Pelosi urged fellow Democrats to sacrifice
their careers for the greater good of voting for a measure considered indispensable to the broader range of party
goals. Which of course is exactly what happened. In April 2011, the liberal Americans for Democratic
Action (ADA) released its report on the 2010 Congressional Voting Record in which it stated that "most of the
high-ADA-scoring Democrats (the most enthusiastic backers of a progressive activist agenda) were reelected,
whereas low-ADA-scoring 'moderates' were not."
Compare and Contrast.

us any safer.["] Nancy Pelosi, earlier today [5/2/2011]: ["]The death of Osama

Pelosi blames high gas prices on "oil men in the White House". Back in 2008 Speaker of the
House Nancy Pelosi said, "The price of oil is at the doorstep. Four dollars plus per gallon for oil is
attributed to two oil men in the White House." Oddly enough, Pelosi is now conspicuously silent about
gas prices. No public comments. No press conferences. No interviews.
Pelosi Blamed 'Oil
Men in the White House' for Gas Prices in '08, Now Who's To Blame? Back in 2008 then-House
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) knew where she wanted to place the blame for high gas prices. "The
price of oil is at the doorstep — 4 dollars plus per gallon for oil, is attributed to two
oil men in the White House," Pelosi said in a CNN interview on July 17th, 2008. Now that
President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney are out of the White House, Pelosi has been
silent on the issue. She has made no public comments on gas prices over the past few months.
Mother Nancy Pelosi.
Many politicians envision themselves in an exalted roll and then act accordingly. Some imagine themselves
as a benevolent father figure, others as a populist folk hero, but the most nausea-inducing usually see themselves
as the savior of mankind. It has become very clear, particularly since she became Speaker of the House, that
Nancy Pelosi sees herself as Mother Teresa, obligated by divine decree to take care of every American.
Calls for Kumbaya. Pity poor Nancy Pelosi — the House minority leader is stuck in
the past. Speaking to a college crowd last Friday [4/8/2011], she admonished her audience: "The fact is, is
that elections shouldn't matter as much as they do." Of course not. She just lost one.
Unelected Rulers. Former House speaker Nancy Pelosi says "elections shouldn't matter as much
as they do." Maybe they don't even matter as much as she thinks they do. It seems that
bureaucrats are making our laws.
Down On Planet Pelosi. The Pelosi Congress spent all the trillions that America couldn't afford,
squandering our children's future on stimulus packages that didn't stimulate and a government takeover of the
nation's health insurance system. Now Pelosi says, "Democrats are in the lead on fiscal soundness" — a
statement that would be a real knee-slapper if it weren't so terrifying in what it reveals of the Democratic Party's
economic policy psychosis.
edits honorary resolution... on Pelosi. The Democratic National Committee wanted to honor
Nancy Pelosi Thursday — but its praise wasn't good enough for the House minority leader.
When the DNC's Resolutions Committee brought up a resolution commemorating Pelosi's years as speaker of the
House, Pelosi's daughter sought to alter the proposal at her mother's behest, adding some of the accomplishments
that the elder Pelosi felt the committee had overlooked.
needles GOP over return of styrofoam cups. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.)
marked the return of styrofoam cuts in congressional cafeterias by jabbing at the Republican majority in
the House. The top Democrat and former Speaker said that the House will now send 535 more tons of
waste to landfills due to a change in policy under the GOP-held House.
The Editor says...
Wow — 535 tons of styrofoam cups is a lot of cups, considering that they weigh about one gram each. But
really, with all the problems facing this country — many of them caused or exacerbated by Pelosi
herself — this is what she spends her time working on?
Congress's Styrofoam cups could cause cancer. A group of Democrats complain Styrofoam cups in
the House cafeteria could contain carcinogens.
The Editor says...
SO? If that's what you believe, then don't use those cups. That will leave more for
the rest of us. But really, styrofoam products have been marketed since
1954*, and if
there was anything dangerous about it, we'd all be dead by now. Lots of things cause cancer,
apparently. Get used to it.
Panels And Job Losses. As the head of Medicaid and Medicare services testifies in favor of
ObamaCare, the CBO director says it will destroy 800,000 jobs. ... Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi once
famously said that we'd have to pass ObamaCare to see what was in it. She also boasted that the
health care bill would create 4 million jobs — "400,000 of them almost immediately."
Exit, Stage Left. American political
junkies have watched with wonder as former Speaker Nancy Pelosi came unglued over the past few days. It
was one of the most unnerving mental deteriorations ever seen in a major political figure. First there was
the unbelievable moment in her farewell press conference when the Speaker who presided over the greatest expansion
of our national debt in history claimed that "deficit reduction has always been a high priority for us." This
was followed by her bizarre, rambling introduction of John Boehner as the new Speaker, in which she spent twelve
endless minutes praising herself for making history and rattling off ObamaCare talking points.
vote: When Rep. Nancy Pelosi lost 19 Democrats on Wednesday's [1/5/2011] vote to be House
speaker, it marked the worst showing for a party's nominee in more than 80 years. Mrs. Pelosi won
the support of 173 Democrats, but 18 others voted for someone else and one voted "present." Rep.
John A. Boehner, Ohio Republican, won the vote with the support of all 241 Republicans who voted.
There is a great fuss about the historically high number of House Democrats — 19 — who voted
against the discredited Nancy Pelosi for speaker. More significant are the 173 who voted for her. You
have to go all the way back to the 1910s and 1920s to find so many defections at the beginning of a new Congress
on a vote for the election of speaker as was seen on Wednesday [1/5/2011].
Pelosi makes an ungracious exit. Watching Nancy Pelosi's startlingly inappropriate farewell as House
Speaker, in which she turned what should have been a gracious constitutional ceremony into a blatantly partisan
defiance of the electorate's judgement, I wondered whether her fingers were actually going to have to be peeled off
the Speaker's gavel. She really is a piece of work: unrepentant and self-congatulatory to the end, even
in the face of overwhelming repudiation by the voters.
Nancy Pelosi Might Just Be Insane.
Nancy Pelosi gave her farewell press conference as Speaker yesterday [1/4/2011]. It was full of the expected boasting
about achievements — it's not as if she was going to admit she was the most catastrophic failure of a
Speaker in recent American history, or that her successor faces the incredibly difficult task of repairing the
damage she's done. There wasn't even much chance she would apologize for her dereliction of duty in failing
to prepare a budget for 2011, leading us into the lame-duck roller derby in December. A thank-you to America
for paying vast sums of money to transport her royal family in regal splendor aboard Air Force planes would have
Obama Hawaiian Vacations Come to an End; Taxpayers Left with the Bill. Nancy Pelosi's final
days as Speaker of the House were spent at the exotic Four Seasons Resort Hualalai at Historic Ka'upulehu
in Kona on the island of Hawaii. Escorted throughout her trip by a mini security motorcade that included
Secret Service and Hawaii County Police officers, Pelosi was seen at St. Michael's Catholic Church in Kailua-Kona,
where she received Communion. Parishioners greeted her warmly, Hawaii Reporter was told.
Two police SUVs were on guard outside the hotel during her week long stay.
Democrats Scorn Pelosi in Speaker Vote. The first vote cast by the 110th Congress
on January 4, 2007 was for election of Speaker of the House. Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) won
all 233 Democratic votes (including her own). All 202 Republicans voted for Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio.
Two years later Pelosi secured 255 (including her own), and there was only one Democrat, one Rep. Gutierrez who did
not vote. Minority Leader Boehner received every Republican vote, save for his own and three other Republicans who
didn't vote. By contrast, yesterday's [1/5/2011] vote for Speaker witnessed a total of 20 Democrats —
10 percent of the party caucus — defecting from the Pelosi line.
Leaves With a Whopper. At her final press conference as House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said,
"Deficit reduction has been a high priority for us. It is our mantra, pay-as-you-go." The numbers
tell a different story. When the Pelosi Democrats took control of Congress on January 4, 2007, the
national debt stood at $8,670,596,242,973.04. The last day of the 111th Congress and Pelosi's Speakership
on December 22, 2010 the national debt was $13,858,529,371,601.09 — a roughly $5.2 trillion
increase in just four years.
debt increased 60% under Speaker Pelosi. There are lots of reasons I will not miss Nancy Pelosi's
extreme left wing speakership. There's Air Pelosi and radical legislation such Cap and Tax and ObamaCare.
But the biggest reason to cheer the end of the ultra-Liberal/Progressive Pelosi Speakership is the national
debt. In the four years that Pelosi was Speaker the national debt increased an unbelievable 60%.
2010: The Year They Came for the
Constitution. [Scroll down] Time after time, when asked about the constitutionality of their
congressional machinations, Democrat legends had a never-ending outbreak of foot-in-mouth disease. No human
being could possibly ascertain whether a bill could be considered constitutional if he or she had never even read
the bill. Yet, over and over again, Democrat Congress members were caught on tape saying exactly that —
that they had not even read the bills they were voting on. This despicable lackadaisical attitude on the part of our
lawmakers came into perfect focus the day a giddy-with-power Nancy Pelosi met with reporters just after she had performed the
legislative-blitzkrieg passage of ObamaCare. Still flush with the thrill of pyrrhic victory, Speaker Pelosi was asked
whether the bill, especially the individual mandate, was constitutional. Her response will be remembered in constitutional
infamy: "Are you serious? Are you serious?"
Democrats: Merry Christmas, and thanks for nothing. Dear Pelosi/Reid Congress —
In the words of the monotonously repetitive holiday song, I want to wish you a merry Christmas. What a
distinguished record you have amassed: The stimulus, which added, oh, about $1 trillion to the
deficit and did not, as heralded, either end the recession or drive down unemployment. [And] Obamacare,
which, if it ever takes full effect, will impersonalize and socialize medicine along the lines of the European
model and create government medicine with the regulatory hammer of the Internal Revenue Service and all the
efficiencies of the Postal Service.
Nancy Pelosi: A Ruler of
Fools. [Nancy Pelosi] isn't stupid or ignorant. She is a spin-master, an epic fraud, an
insufferable boor, and a pathological liar. But she isn't dumb. No one could attain her position
while drinking the sociopolitical Kool-Aid she serves up. No, Pelosi isn't stupid or ignorant. She
does, however, credit those characteristics to her constituents. Sadly enough, she's correct.
Otherwise, her seat in Congress wouldn't be so secure. A people's representative respects the
intelligence of the people he or she represents.
The Girl in the Plastic Bubble. Being a leftist in America means never needing to actually hear
or grasp what conservatives believe. Many leftists, particularly soon-to-be Minority Leader Pelosi, live
in a plastic bubble.
Game. Nancy Pelosi kept her job as the leader of House Democrats yesterday, but more than a
fifth of her colleagues voted for Blue Dog moderate Heath Shuler instead. At least one Democrat who
is leaving office in January privately told me that the support for her reminded him of cult followers
refusing to let go of a charismatic but destructive leader.
whines: I didn't get enough attention. As she prepares to relinquish power, Nancy Pelosi
believes not enough attention has been paid to her role as the first woman to hold the post of Speaker
of the House. "I was the first woman speaker," Pelosi tells the New York Times. "It didn't
get that much play."
Pelosi Elected As Minority Leader. Nancy
Pelosi has just been re-elected to the House Democrats' top leadership position, which is now Minority Leader.
In retrospect, it seems obvious that the Democrats would want to retain her dazzling leadership, since she had all
sorts of accomplishments, and even threw a huge party to celebrate them.
Why Democrats don't dump Nancy Pelosi:
Why would politicians who supposedly care above all about public opinion and their own hides stick with an unpopular
leader who just carried them through one of the worst election drubbings in decades?
Defections. Yesterday [11/10/2010] was an awkward day for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. An
advocate of transparency in government, her office had to bat away questions from reporters about who paid for
a lavish party on Capitol Hill Wednesday that celebrated the "accomplishments of the 111th Congress." She
also faced a growing revolt from within her caucus about her decision to continue as House Minority Leader after
her party's thumping defeat.
Pelosi: 'We Didn't
Lose Because of Me'. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she has the "overwhelming support" of fellow
Democrats in her bid to become minority leader in the next Congress, and says she's not to blame for the Democrats'
mid-term debacle. "We didn't lose the election because of me," Ms. Pelosi told National Public Radio in an
interview that aired Friday morning [11/12/2010].
Psycho Pelosi. The GOP
successfully nationalized the election by making Mrs. Pelosi the very symbol of limousine liberalism, a leader
who presided over an out-of-control, out-of-touch and arrogant Congress. The Republican slogan was simple
and effective: "Fire Pelosi." In the House, she was the spear point in Mr. Obama's assault on Middle
America, ramming through legislation such as the stimulus, the health care overhaul, "cap-and-trade," financial
regulatory reform and massive spending increases. On Obamacare, Mrs. Pelosi did the heavy legislative
lifting — ensuring that the law established a government-run command-and-control health care economy. She
is the true architect of socialized medicine.
Pelosi Celebrates Accomplishments, Horrified Voters
Not Invited? Nancy Pelosi is having a party to celebrate the accomplishments of the Democrat-controlled
Congress. Although this invitation sounds like a parody from The Onion or the start of a Leno joke, it's
actually true. ... The dethroned Speaker of the House, whose liberal agenda led her party straight into the
defeat, is seemingly still in denial.
Nancy Pelosi to run for minority leader.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi plans to stay in power as minority leader after losing 60 seats and control of
the House — a stunning announcement that sets up combat between her two top lieutenants.
says election not a rejection of agenda, Obama will be two-term president. House Speaker Nancy
Pelosi, who saw her powerful position taken from her in Tuesday's landslide election, was adamant the day
after Democrats lost 60 seats in the House that the results were not a rejection of the agenda pursued
by President Obama and herself. "Let's understand the message," Pelosi told ABC's Diane Sawyer.
"The message was not, 'I reject the course that you are on.' The message is it didn't go fast enough to
