Nancy Pelosi

Ocasio-Cortez Is a Pain in Pelosi’s Agenda

David Catron, The American Spectator

Pelosi will prevail in her January Speaker vote. And, if America’s favorite Democratic Socialite wants to avoid being burned and banished to outer darkness in two years, she will be wise not to set the price for her support too high. Pelosi has been a member of the House since June of 1987, more than two years before Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was born. Nancy Pelosi has seen a lot of ambitious young fire breathers immolated by their own hubris.

Donald Trump Won the Chuck-n-Nancy Meeting, and Here’s Why

Matt K. Lewis, Daily Beast

For those conservatives who championed Trump based on his status as a fighter, he doesn’t get points just for standing up for the wall. However, he does get extra points for not cowering in the face of a government shutdown. It has long been axiomatic that Republicans would always get blamed for a shutdown—regardless of the merits. This was partly a function of it being less plausible to believe that Democrats, seen as the party of big government, would want to shut down governmental functions. Trump is the first Republican president I’ve seen who defied this rule.

Trump Picks The Right Fight With Pelosi And Schumer

Yesterday's meeting between President Trump and Democratic leaders Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Charles Schumer proved that Trump took away the most important lesson from the funeral of the late George H.W. Bush – failing to fight for your political promises is a guaranteed way to be a one term president. Trump has chosen the right fight to have with the Democrats, and the right time to have it.

House Democrats Debate Term Limits for Committee Heads

John Fund, National Review

Once voters begin to catch on that the new Democratic bosses of the House are much like the worst of the old GOP bosses — to the extent that they spurn change and cling to power at all costs — they may reconsider what they did last November. If Democrats focus on impeaching President Trump while keeping reactionary supporters of the status quo in power, they might find that their new House majority won’t last very long. Their last stint in power was four years long. It could be even shorter this time.

Trump Fights For GOP Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith In Mississippi Senate Runoff

Democrat Mike Espy is a ground floor member of the Clinton crime and corruption family. We urge all our CHQ friends and readers in Mississippi to heed President Trump’s warning: Don’t take anything for granted, be sure to vote for Republican Cindy Hyde-Smith in today’s Senate run-off.

Will Democratic Rebels Dethrone Queen Nancy?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

What does the new year promise? As it becomes apparent that there is little common ground for bipartisan legislation on Capitol Hill—except perhaps on infrastructure, and that would take a long time to enact—the cable news channels will look elsewhere for the type of action that causes ratings to soar. That action will inevitably come in the clashes between Trump and his enemies and the media that sustain them. And trading barbs is not Nancy Pelosi’s kind of fight.

Run Like Kevin McCarthy Fight Like Jim Jordan

Rep. McCarthy claims to have the right instincts and the right tools; he could be, not just a good leader, but a great leader, if he adopts Jim Jordan’s platform of keeping the GOP’s promises and fighting for conservative principles and President Trump’s conservative – populist agenda at every turn in the legislative process.

Jim Jordan’s Most Important Qualifications For Minority Leader

Jim Jordan proved in founding the Freedom Caucus is that he’s up for the fight, and that is the most important qualification for Minority Leader. Kevin McCarthy and his establishment allies are much more worried about looking good to their friends at the country club than they are fighting for conservative principles, especially when the immediate chances of winning are slim.

Democrats Being Themselves

Conservatives wondering what the future holds for the upcoming 116th Congress should wonder no more and simply take Democrats at their word as to their plans. This means a very full agenda of harassing President Trump, pursuing conspiracy theories, raising taxes and restricting your freedom.

Jim Jordan: House GOP Leaders Blew 2018 Election

Democrats are going to spend the next two years harassing President Trump and offering free stuff to voters. The only thing Republicans have that can beat free is keeping the promises made in the 2016 election. We urge CHQ readers and friends to sign our letter to newly elected Republicans urging them to vote for Jim Jordan for House Minority Leader.

Memo To New GOP House Members: Kevin McCarthy Is Too Dumb And Inept To Be Minority Leader

Rep. Kevin McCarthy is just plain too dumb and incoherent to effectively speak for the Republican minority, let alone lead Republicans to regain the majority. We urge CHQ readers and friends to sign our letter to newly elected Republicans urging them to vote for Jim Jordan for House Minority Leader and call their Republican Representative TODAY to urge him or her to vote for Jim Jordan when the House Republican Conference meets.

A Democratic Congress Could Be a Perfect Foil for Trump

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

A Democratic House will be a natural foil for President Trump, an institution with responsibility but without real power. And should the economy, which has been running splendidly under a Republican Congress and president start to sputter under a divided Congress, there is no doubt that the Democratic House majority, with its anti-capitalist left and socialist ideology, would emerge as the primary suspect. 2019 is thus shaping up to be a year of gridlock on Capitol Hill, with the Senate attempting to expeditiously move through Trump's nominated judges, and a Democratic House potentially hassling the White House and Trump administration with a snowstorm of subpoenas.

Why There Are No 'Conservative' Democrats

West Virginia’s Democratic Senator Joe Manchin tries to look conservative but when push comes to shove rather than risk being marginalized he sides with the Party's Far-Left liberal leaders. The same dynamic is now at work further and further down the Democratic Party’s food chain, as a recent report from Pennsylvania demonstrates.

Jim Jordan For Speaker By The Numbers

As we have often said, no voter in their right mind – and these polls show the conservative voters the GOP needs to win are more attuned than ever – is going to vote to continue Paul Ryan’s legacy of betrayals, lies and failures.

Pelosi Haunted by Women Her Party Suppressed

David Catron, The American Spectator

Pelosi and her accomplices badly need to prevent voters from learning the truth about their long history of suppressing women’s suffrage. They know that, if too many people hear the truth about the roles the two parties actually played in that struggle, it won’t bode well for a party that also has to live down slavery and native-American genocide. Sooner or later the voters will realize there are just too many ghosts haunting the Democrats.

The Politicians Who Killed Mollie Tibbetts

Mollie Tibbetts was killed so that somebody in Iowa could have cheap labor, and she was killed so that members of the Business Roundtable and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce could hit this quarter’s earnings target, and most shamefully, she was killed so that virtue signaling liberal politicians could get reelected.
