” Nancy Pelosi goes against her legacy as an advocate for women’s voting rights and denies Rep. Tammy Duckworth the right vote by proxy in the Democratic leadership elections. (5:12) “
” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) predicted a Democratic sweep in 2016.
If Republicans keep the House in November, Pelosi said they wouldn’t hold their majority for long.
“ Their days are numbered. I know that in two years, I know we’ll have a Democratic Congress and a Democratic president,” she told reporters at her weekly press conference.
Asked if she was conceding that Republicans would hold the House in November’s midterms, Pelosi insisted, “No, I’m not.”
“ We’ve out-mobilized them; we’ve out-recruited them; we’ve outraised them to a shameful extent. They’re desperate,” she said. “
While being confronted about domestic surveillance and fourth amendment violations a group of high school students get Nancy Pelosi to blame Bush and defend the NSA , thus revealing her to be the tool that she is .
” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was booed off stage last week—by liberals.
Pelosi defended President Obama’s position on the NSA’s surveillance programs, and suggested that leaker Edward Snowden broke the law by whistleblowing. The congresswoman’s defense of spying was not well received.
“ People on the far right are saying ‘Oh, this is the fourth term of President Bush,’” Pelosi said. “Absolutely, positively not so.”
Pelosi then advocated for a greater cooperation between security and privacy agencies.
But the audience did not care for her rhetoric. Several audience members were removed from the room after objecting to Pelosi’s speech.”
” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said she would rather pass amnesty legislation than get her gavel back.
“ It’s the biggest thing that we can do, and that’s why I’ve said to the speaker, to the press, to these groups, I would rather pass [a] comprehensive immigration reform bill than win the elections in November,” Pelosi told Politico. “There’s nothing we could accomplish in winning that would be as big as passing immigration reform.”
Other Democrats like Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) have indicated that this year was the last chance to pass broad amnesty legislation. “
This report tells the reader exactly what the Dems priorities are … A permanent Democratic majority … If this isn’t a wake-up call to the panderers in the GOP then they deserve to be relegated to the back bench in perpetuity . If only the cost for America wasn’t so high we’d say f**k them , let them destroy themselves .
The Dem’s , like the Muslims are in it for the long game and if the GOP doesn’t open their eyes and start offering a truly different platform other than “Democrat Lite” they , and by extension all of us , are doomed to a life of minority status .
Breitbart has the scoop
” Arguing it would restore democracy, two top House Democrats pushed for sweeping legislation to reverse the Supreme Court’s ruling in the Citizens United speech case, including a constitutional amendment limiting campaign contributions and instituting a taxpayer-financing system.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Rep. John Sarbanes (D-Md.) published an op-ed in The Washington Post Wednesday advocating for the Government by the People Act on the day it was being introduced in the House.
“ We must disclose the sources of the money in our campaigns, amend the Constitution to reverse the grievous error of the Citizens United decision, reform our broken campaign finance system and empower citizens everywhere to exercise their right to vote,” Pelosi and Sarbanes wrote.”
Having searched Thomas , and numerous government websites we could not presently locate a copy of the text of the bill but we did find a list of co-sponsors that reads as a typical list of enemies of the Tea Party and liberty :
” As of 02/06/2014 text has not been received for H.R.20 – To reform the financing of Congressional elections by broadening participation by small dollar donors, and for other purposes.
Bills are generally sent to the Library of Congress from GPO, the Government Printing Office, a day or two after they are introduced on the floor of the House or Senate. Delays can occur when there are a large number of bills to prepare or when a very large bill has to be printed.”

The Examiner offers a very telling piece on the motives behind this latest attempt by the “progressives” to shut down free speech for the proponents of limited government :
” Although the “Government by the People Act” innocently claims to want to get big money out of politics, the real goal is to smash the Tea Party (as well as pro-Israel, pro-life, and other similar groups collectively referred to as the “Tea Party.”)
This legislation is the direct result of a secretive, well-financed progressive plot hatched shortly after President Obama’s re-election in 2012.
Sound like a conspiracy? It is.
The meeting was described by Andy Kroll of Mother Jones, who wrote that “three dozen of the most powerful groups in liberal politics met [for an ‘invite-only and off-the-record’ meeting] at the headquarters of the National Education Association (NEA).” During the meeting, they pledged “millions of dollars” to actively work on three specific goals, one of which was “getting big money out of politics.” “
Imagine the chutzpah of the NEA and other unions demanding to get the “big money” out of politics.
” The fear that conservative groups would have access to funds typically granted to progressive groups and unions was too much to bear. In fact, the Citizens United ruling came at right around the time that the Internal Revenue Service started targeting conservative groups.
As revealed by Glenn Kessler of the Washington Post,
“The targeting of [conservative] groups began in early 2010, after the Supreme Court’s decision in Citizens United v. FEC was announced on Jan. 21.”
Many of the same politicians and activist groups involved in the Democracy Initiative pressured the IRS to scrutinize the Tea Party before Lois Lerner “spontaneously” apologized for the targeting in May, 2013.
A detailed history of the IRS targeting can be found at Tavern Keepers.”
These legislative and lobbying efforts on the part of the elite of the “progressive” left to shut down the Tea Party and like minded citizens groups speaks volumes as to the effectiveness of such organizations and gives evidence of just how important to the cause of liberty , freedom and limited government they are .
” Nancy Pelosi is trying to get some help on becoming more likable:
“ Lawmakers say she is consulting marketing experts about building a stronger brand. The most prominent of her new whisperers is Steven Spielberg, the Hollywood director whose films have been works of branding genius. Lawmakers said Spielberg has not reported to Pelosi with a recommendation.”
I’m not sure why it takes a “marketing expert” to tell her the obvious: Stop being such a dishonest political hack.
And stop making ridiculous statements… People tend to frown on that.
The following are ten outrageous statements made by Pelosi in just the few years. She should avoid making statements like these in the future:”
” 1.“The Bible tells us in the Old Testament, ‘To minister to the needs of God’s creation is an act of worship. To ignore those needs is to dishonor the God who made us.’ On this Earth Day, and every day, let us pledge to our children, and our children’s children, that they will have clean air to breathe, clean water to drink, and the opportunity to experience the wonders of nature.”
Nice. The only problem is the Old Testament contains no such quote.
2. “This initiative is funded by the high end – we call it Astroturf It’s not really a grassroots movement.”
Just gut-wrenching hypocrisy -Astroturf is all the Dem Socialists know, so naturally she accuses her political opposition of what her side does in spades.”
” Dear Fellow Americans,
Among the many fears people are expressing about the Affordable Care Act is the supposed extra hours it will force people to spend if they have the misfortune of having to go to hospital emergency rooms.
Critics claim that those enrolled in “Obamacare” (a term I personally dislike but have to use, or else the commoners out there won’t know what I’m speaking about) will be forced to sit even longer in hospital emergency care rooms due to doctors being forced out of the profession, thereby leaving emergency rooms understaffed, and so forcing people to overwhelm them with minor ailments, compounding insurance companies with tons of more red tape that will cause them to reject patients to regular doctors’ and specialists’ offices much more than ever. And don’t forget the people now forced or choosing to join Medicaid that should never be on it, which will clog up emergency rooms, as the E.R.s will become as common to them as visiting their pharmacies for a simple cold.
Think about it, America: you’re wallowing in your local emergency room, vomiting your guts out from that tainted sushi you ate the night before, and next to you is some person crying over their left ankle that somehow got broken and now has their left foot facing backwards instead of frontwards –wouldn’t that be the perfect time to be like, “Hi, there, sir or ma’am! What’s your name? Want to be friends?” “
” Democratic leaders claim the bungled launch of Obamacare is just the latest news sensation — a media-stirred tempest that looks in the heat of the moment like it could upend the midterm election, but ends up fizzling well before voters head to the polls.
Some party strategists say they’re in denial.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said at a forum hosted by BuzzFeed recently that the rollout won’t “hurt us in 2014,” adding that “we’re proud” of the law. Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, in a recent appearance on CNN, went so far as to assert that Obamacare would be “an advantage” for Democratic candidates next year.
“ Democrats will run on the Affordable Care Act and win,” she has also told reporters.
The White House, meanwhile, has come across as equally dismissive of Obamacare’s consequences for 2014.
“The fact is that [the president] is focused on delivering the access to quality and affordable health insurance to the American people that the Affordable Care Act promises. He’s not concerned about the politics of that,” White House press secretary Jay Carney recently said.”
Denial ? What denial ?
” Nancy Pelosi, the top Democrat in the Republican-controlled House, dismissed growing concerns that the political damage from the botched implementation of the healthcare act could harm her party’s hopes of taking over the majority in next year’s midterm congressional elections. Those chances had grown in the wake of last month’s government shutdown, which most Americans blamed on congressional Republicans.
But the political winds shifted sharply against Democrats in recent weeks as the Obama administration grappled with massive problems in signing up people on the new healthcare exchanges designed to expand medical coverage to millions of Americans. The troubles were further compounded when insurers began cancelling existing plans that were substandard under the healthcare act, contradicting claims by Mr Obama and many Democrats that people could keep their plans if they liked them.”
We would like to know if Ms Pelosi has read the bill yet .
Some of her colleagues obviously have . Below are some links that will give the reader some idea of the daunting task M Pelosi faces in trying to get her Democratic compatriots to “Stand Tall” on their “signature legislation” . Good luck Nancy .
As we said good luck . You’re going to need it .
We have to give David Gregory some small measure of credit today . He took a very hard line on the “if you like it , you can keep it” meme that the Dem’s have been singing from the rooftops for the past three years and pushed , pulled and prodded Nancy Pelosi in an effort to get her to own up to the lie , all to no avail . Ms Pelosi was the obstinate denier to the end , employing every verbal contortion imaginable … she comes off as nothing more than a little Goebbels … ” if I just keep repeating it long enough maybe someone will believe me” . What arrogance , what hypocrisy .
One was left with the impression that even Gregory wanted to reach across the table , grab the little fabricator by the throat and call her a liar . We know that was how we felt .
” A planned immigration reform rally will take place on the National Mall on Tuesday even though the site is closed due to the government shutdown.
Organizers for the “Camino Americano: March for Immigration Reform” were spotted Monday setting up a stage and equipment on the National Mall for the rally which will take place on Tuesday.”
The federal budget has doubled in size in 12 years, from $1.9 trillion in 2001 to $3.8 trillion this year.”
” In contrast to intransigence on the right, which proudly proclaims its refusal to budge come hell or high water, the liberal Democrats’ brand of intransigence disguises itself as devotion to dialogue, conformity to morality, and reliance on reason. But their concept of dialogue is one-sided, the interpretation of morality constricted, and the progressive version of reason suffused with partisan judgments. The upshot is that progressives have managed to convince themselves that they are paragons of flexibility and open-mindedness while scorning those who diverge from the progressive party line.
President Obama exemplifies this sensibility. On the 2008 campaign trail he and his acolytes touted his ideological independence, inclination to reach across the aisle, and pragmatic approach to policy. And just the other day, in an interview with Politico, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi characterized the president as “open, practically apolitical, certainly nonpartisan, in terms of welcoming every idea and solution.” In reality, from the stimulus package and health care reform to the current Syria debacle, Obama’s favored approach to dealing with Republicans has been “my way or the highway,” even when, as in the case of Bashar al-Assad’s use of chemical weapons, his way veers this way and that.
Meanwhile, our predominantly progressive press corps fuels progressive intransigence. For example, Obama and congressional Republicans reached an agreement last December in which each side could claim an important victory: Republicans impelled the president to make permanent the Bush tax cuts for 98 percent of earners and the president forced Republicans to agree to tax increases on the highest-earning 2 percent.
Left-leaning pundits nevertheless disparaged GOP concessions as caving while praising the president for holding firm. That asymmetric message was bound to encourage intransigence in both camps but not in symmetrical fashion. Conservatives recognized that they will be damned if they do compromise and progressives saw that they will not be damned if they don’t.”
‘FU** ALL YOU LIBTARDS OUT THERE’: VULGAR YOUTUBE RANTS BY A LOCAL POLICE CHIEF…AND THE MAYOR WHO’S STANDING BEHIND HIM
” *WARNING: All of the videos in this story contain graphic, profane, and offensive language.*
The chief of police in Gilberton Borough, Pennsylvania (population 834), is under fire after posting a series of profanity-laced videos that insult liberals, Secretary of State John Kerry and former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. And he is in no way apologetic for any of them.”
” The video that sparked an investigation into Chief Kessler is a brief one but manages to pack in plenty of comments that many have found offensive. In the clip, Kesseler drops the f-word numerous times and uses the derogatory term “libtards” while wearing a t-shirt with an offensive comment on it:
In another video, Chief Kessler (in uniform) is teaching a class on pistol safety. He uses a target with a clown image on it and refers to the image as “Nancy Pelosi with her gavel”:

” Nancy Pelosi, like Joe Biden, is the gift that keeps on giving. Today she offered up more brilliant analysis as to why The GOP is “making so much” of the scandals: because Barack Obama in “such a great president.”
“They make so much of these issues, because this president is such a great president. He’s a visionary – you’ve heard me say this so many times.
This is a great president. He’s a visionary. He has a knowledge of our country, concerns of the American people that give him judgment as to what plan we should have to go forward to strengthen the middle class.”
” The inimitable Nancy Pelosi has added yet another casualty of sequestration to the ridiculous list of “forced cuts” created by the Democrats in their continuing effort to blame Republicans for the budget impasse.
She can’t travel to Iraq on Mother’s Day to thank America’s moms and grandmothers for their service to our country:
“Every year for the past few years on Mother’s Day I’ve taken a delegation to Afghanistan – or Iraq – to say thank you to our moms – and by the way, our grandmothers – who are serving there – to also thank all of our troops for what they do to protect America’s families. I won’t be going this particular weekend because we don’t have – you know, under sequestration – we don’t have (inaudible).” “
” Every time Congress has taken a serious look at proposals to boost Internet sales taxes, it has rejected them. That’s probably why pro-tax Senators are trying to rush through an online tax hike with as little consideration as possible.
As early as Monday, the Senate will vote on a bill that was introduced only last Tuesday. The text of this legislation, which would fundamentally change interstate commerce, only became available on the Library of Congress website over the weekend. And you thought ObamaCare was jammed through Nancy Pelosi‘s Democratic House in a hurry.
For Senators curious about what they’re voting on, it is the same flawed proposal that Mike Enzi (R., Wyo.) introduced in February. It has been repackaged to qualify for a Senate rule that allows Majority Leader Harry Reid to bypass committee debate and bring it straight to the floor.”
” By golly, Nancy Pelosi was right — they didn’t know what was in ObamaCare until it passed! Of course, in this case all she needed to do was ask her buddy Harry Reid, who apparently sandbagged his party’s gun-control wing by inserting an interesting clause in the 2800-page bill that no one in Congress bothered to read before voting on it. CNN’s Jim Acosta reveals the restriction on firearms-registration data collection built into the 2010 law: “
” “At one point several weeks ago,” Mr. Boehner told Wall Street Journal writer Stephen Moore, “the president said to me, ‘We don’t have a spending problem.’ “
Such began the divinely timed epiphany of Speaker Boehner that the president is an ideologue who perhaps can’t be reasoned with. Thus, the Speaker’s eyes were opened during the fiscal cliff negotiations that the president is out to draw political blood on Republicans, and really isn’t all-too-concerned about compromise. Well, unless you consider “compromise” making an outrageous offer and then getting 90% of what he wants. “
