Nancy Pelosi

'The Rules' Don’t Apply To Democrats

Four prominent Democrats, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, Virginia Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax, Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring and Minnesota’s Muslim Democrat Congresswoman Ilan Omar, have broken the top three of the many unwritten rules of acceptable public conduct, and after issuing pro forma apologies or faux outraged denials, have come away unscathed.

It Turns Out Nancy Pelosi Is In The Censorship Business After All

A forced and insincere apology from Rep. Ilhan Omar is hardly enough and does not address the real problem here; having an open anti-Semite in the confidential decision-making hierarchy of our government. We think that RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel had it right when she tweeted: Nancy Pelosi was wrong to elevate her to the Foreign Affairs Committee. Now Pelosi should remove her.

Pelosi Outsmarted Herself on the SOTU

David Catron, The American Spectator

To paraphrase the immortal P.G. Wodehouse, it was clear that, if not actually disgruntled, Pelosi was far from being gruntled. But she could have compromised with Trump on the wall and prevented an unnecessary fight. And she certainly didn’t need to postpone the SOTU. But she refused to do the former and insisted upon the latter — setting Trump up for Tuesday night’s triumph. A classic example of poetic justice. Now the country sees him as more presidential and her as less reasonable. On the shutdown fight, she was too clever by half.

Can moderate Dems talk Pelosi out of her extreme position in the border negotiations?

Byron York, Washington Examiner

As things stand now, a House and Senate conference committee is the only hope that Democrats and Republicans can reach agreement on border security and avoid another government shutdown. The negotiations — such as they are, for a committee that has met briefly only once in more than a week — are ostensibly between Republicans and Democrats. But well-informed Republicans believe it is another set of talks — internal talks among Democrats — that will determine whether the committee succeeds and a shutdown is averted.

Trump Tweets On The Wall, Is Congress Listening?

President Trump may be on to the Conference Committee Republicans lack of fire in the belly for the Wall when he tweeted on Wednesday, “If the committee of Republicans and Democrats now meeting on Border Security is not discussing or contemplating a Wall or Physical Barrier, they are Wasting their time!”

New Ear To The Ground Poll: Wall Is Make Or Break For Trump And GOP

Trump voters gave him a 6.71 out of 7 today – but would score him 3.82 if he fails to secure border security funds, a drop of 43 percent. While his voters are still with him today, it appears the President better build the wall or his support will significantly suffer.

Judicial Watch Exposes The Cost Of Air Pelosi

Judicial Watch uncovered that Speaker Pelosi’s military travel previously cost the United States Air Force $2,100,744.59 over one two-year period — $101,429.14 of which was for in-flight expenses, including food and alcohol.

Ann Coulter Couldn't Be More Wrong - Trump Is No Wimp On The Wall

Ann Coulter couldn't be more wrong - Trump is no wimp. We urge CHQ readers and friends to have faith in President Trump’s commitment to build the wall. The toll-free Capitol Switchboard is (1-866-220-0044) tell your Senators and Representative if Congress remains in political gridlock you agree the President should use his Article II authority to declare a national emergency and have the Pentagon build the Wall.

Pelosi and the Caucus of Crazy

David Catron, The American Spectator

Not all Democrats are racists. Some are anti-Semites. A few are socialists. And some are old-fashioned crooks. Nancy Pelosi and a few others are merely megalomaniacs. One hardly needs heavyweight political scientists or sophisticated historians to predict what happens when this volatile admixture is combined with large quantities of special interest money and unlimited political power — you get crazy. What you do not get is reasonable compromises on important issues. And you certainly don’t get good government.

Senate GOP Squishes Screw Trump On Border Wall… Again

The toll-free Capitol Switchboard is (1-866-220-0044) we urge all CHQ readers and friends to call Senators Lamar Alexander, Susan Collins, Corey Gardner, Johnny Isakson, Lisa Murkowski and Mitt Romney to tell them no more defections, and that grassroots conservative Republicans back President Trump and his commitment to keep the partial government shutdown in place until the wall is funded.

Don’t Bet On Centrist Democrats Bringing Pelosi Around On The Wall

Centrist House Democrats, who say they are sick of political posturing, want Speaker Pelosi to counter Trump’s sure-to-die-in-the-Senate immigration proposal with her own compromise. But don't bet on them succeeding because all the political weight in the Democratic Party now lies with the Far Left.

Now Nancy Pelosi Owns the Shutdown

Stephen Moore, CNS News

Many Latino voters will see that she is more interested in political power than in taking positive steps to actually help prevent a family member from facing deportation. If Trump can win 10 percent more of the Hispanic vote, no Democrat could defeat him. The political chaos from the government shutdown isn't working in the president's favor. He needs an exit strategy. DACA for the wall turns the politics of the government shutdown upside down and Trump will come out a big winner — at Pelosi's expense. Well done, Mr. President.

UniParty Pulling Bait And Switch On Trump Wall Funding

The UniParty on Capitol Hill is doing an elaborate little Minuet to convince you that there’s just no support for the Wall. Here’s the first Partita of the Minuet according to The Hill: The Senate leadership on Tuesday struck an agreement to vote on dueling proposals to reopen the federal government, not secure the southern border.

Trump Immigration Proposal Boxes In Democrats

Should Democrats kill the Trump proposal – as we believe they will – the President should feel empowered to begin to explore executive action to address the national security crisis at our southern border – including using the military to construct an effective border wall.

Trump Clips Pelosi’s Wings

Can you imagine the late President George H.W. Bush, former President George W. Bush, the late John McCain or failed presidential candidate Mitt Romney sending that letter to Nancy Pelosi? What conservatives of all stripes having been waiting for for decades is a leader who will fight the Uniparty consensus in Washington, and Donald Trump has proven to be that leader.

Saving The Earth At The Point Of A Bayonet

The only way the Green New Deal could be accomplished would be through the forced relocation of millions of workers and their families in a massive societal restructuring akin to the forced collectivization of Russian agriculture after the Soviet Revolution of 1917 or Chairman Mao’s Great Leap Forward economic restructuring of Communist China.

Ban On Bump Stocks To Begin March 26

According to the notice in the Federal Register, the Department of Justice is amending the regulations of the ATF to clarify that bump-stock-type devices - meaning “bump fire” stocks, slide-fire devices, etc. - are “machineguns” as defined by the National Firearms Act of 1934 and the Gun Control Act of 1968. Gun owners have responded by filing a federal lawsuit in the Western District of Michigan.

Mr. President, No Surrender On The Wall

Though we don’t want to see anyone out of work or missing a paycheck, why should anyone care more that a hundred or a thousand or ten thousand government employees are not getting paid - than for the survival of their country?

Nancy Pelosi’s immoral border stance

Katie Pavlich, The Hill

Democratic leadership and congressional members in the House and Senate say walls are immoral and they don’t work anyway. Of course, both of these things are untrue. The data, the stories and the ongoing crisis at the border prove it is important and the situation is dire. “I campaigned on Border Security, which you cannot have without a strong and powerful Wall. Our Southern Border has long been an ‘Open Wound,’ where drugs, criminals (including human traffickers) and illegals would pour into our Country,” President Trump tweeted. President Trump, rather than Speaker Pelosi, has the moral high ground.

Pelosi, Schumer have a border-security problem with the American people

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

During his winning address from the Oval Office, Mr. Trump batted away hysterical claims that securing the border is somehow “immoral.” Mr. Trump ticked off the number of criminal illegal aliens arrested for violent crimes. He listed the number of Americans who will die overdosing on drugs pouring across the broken border. And he highlighted some of the more despicable murders and crimes carried out against American citizens in recent months. Indeed, the problem Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have is not with Donald Trump. It is with the American people.
