Is Pelosi a GOP Plant?

Featured image Like the email John mentions below, there are ample other reasons to wonder about Nancy Pelosi’s probity. I’ve always heard that she is very skillful at the back-room aspects of party management in the House, and she better be, because when she opens her mouth to speak, you can expect a disaster that could make even John Kerry cringe. Last Friday on Bill Maher’s HBO “comedy” show, she said, “Civilization »

Is Nancy Pelosi a crook?

Featured image Lachlan Marklay, writing in the Washington Free Beacon, reports that Nancy Pelosi 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. Here, according to Marklay, is how the scheme operated: Pelosi has worked for more than a decade to steer taxpayer funds to a light rail project »

Marinomania!

Featured image I can’t get enough of Rep. Tom Marino and his close encounter of the harridan kind with Nancy Pelosi on the floor of the House this past Friday night. It’s the kind of bedtime story I need in the Age of Obama. Rep. Marino found his way onto FNC last night with Shannon Bream sitting in for Megyn Kelly on the Kelly File (video below). Rep. Marino, a nation turns »

Marino’s moment

Featured image Tucker Carlson caught up with Rep. Tom Marino this morning on FOX & Friends to ask about Marino’s close encounter of the harridan kind with Nancy Pelosi this past Friday night. The video is below. Rep. Marino is one cool cucumber. We who are about to sigh salute you! »

The wrath of Pelosi, the cool of Marino

Featured image ABC’s John Parkinson reports this close encounter of the harridan kind (video below) in connection with the House wrapping up its debate on the immigration bill yesterday: 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. “We don’t »

Pelosi parrots Qatar’s description of Hamas as “humanitarian”

Featured image Nancy Pelosi says that the United States must look to Qatar for advice in resolving the war between Hamas and Israel. And the beginning of the wisdom Qatar has imparted to Pelosi “over and over again” is that “Hamas is a humanitarian organization.” Qatar, of course, is the main ally and financial backer of Hamas. Indeed, Hamas’ leader, Khaled Meshaal, operates from Qatar. For that matter, Qatar is believed to »

Pelosi: We Are All Americans Now!

Featured image Nancy Pelosi has been on the Southern border, trying to demagogue the tragic influx of tens of thousands of Central American minors, largely unaccompanied. She gave a press conference today. Breitbart reports: 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 »

Team Clinton provides Pelosi an intervention

Featured image The need for Democrats to participate on the Benghazi select committee has been obvious all along. As I wrote almost three weeks ago: If they participate, Democrats can break the Republicans’ momentum and rehabilitate, or at least assist, administration witnesses after they have been worked over by the likes of Trey Gowdy. Imagine you’re Susan Rice testifying before the committee. Would you rather face non-stop questioning from Republicans or have »

#ProTip for Harry Reid: Give It Up, You’re Losing

Featured image Harry Reid’s obsessive campaign against Charles and David Koch has been drawing negative commentary lately, as observers note that it has gotten no traction with voters, is far removed from the issues that most people care about, and if anything is generating sympathy for the brothers. The Democrats’ latest venture–the screening of Robert Greenwald’s new edition of “Koch Brothers Exposed” at the Visitor Center in the Capitol Building–lends more support »

Democrats’ Misuse of Capitol Visitor Center for Partisan Rally Draws Ethics Complaint

Featured image We have written several times about the spectacle of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi commandeering the Capitol building’s Visitor Center to screen a partisan video by the far-left Robert Greenwald. To all appearances, the Democrats’ use of this taxpayer-funded space was illegal. Yet Reid and Pelosi, when apprised of the relevant legal issues, went ahead anyway. They probably shouldn’t have bothered. The turnout was risible, possibly 40 people, mostly Democratic »

The Palme d’Or Goes To…

Featured image Greenwald in the Cities! The Democrats are illegally commandeering the taxpayer-funded Capitol Visitor Center to screen the “premiere” of a partisan film by far-left video maker Robert Greenwald, beginning in around an hour. The video is titled “Koch Brothers Exposed,” and has already been exposed as a fraud. In honor of this disgraceful event, we are recognizing the best video ever made by or about Robert Greenwald. It is a »

Reid and Pelosi Go to the Movies [Updated: Is Capitol Screening Illegal?]

Featured image On Tuesday, the Democrats will screen a “documentary” film that attacks Charles and David Koch in the Visitor Center of the United States Capitol. Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi plan to attend. Politico reports: The two congressional Democratic leaders will appear at a screening in the Capitol of “Koch Brothers Exposed: 2014 Edition” — a documentary that Senate Majority Leader Reid (D-Nev.) participated in. Both Reid and Minority Leader Pelosi »

7 Repubs, 5 Dems for Benghazi select committee

Featured image Politico reports that Speaker Boehner has decided on the partisan split of the Select Committee on Benghazi. It will be 7 Republicans and 5 Democrats. That’s a fair split given the Republicans’ majority status in the House. As Politico points out, there are very few House committees that are evenly split. The Ethics Committee is one. Nonetheless, Nancy Pelosi had demanded an even split of 6-6. She claimed that with »
