The Pelosi confusion

Featured image FOX News covers House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s appearance on the ABC News Sunday morning gabfest with George Stephanopoulos yesterday (video clip below). Pelosi simulates Dementia Joe in her tactful response to Stephanopoulos’s question asking about the “arrows” in the the Dems’ “quiver” to forestall the appointment a successor to Justice Ginsburg by anyone but Dementia Joe himself. Dementia appears to be the new thing, though in Pelosi’s case I infer »

The Washington Post professes concern about Israel’s peace deal

Featured image Israel’s peace agreement with the UAE and Bahrain, signed yesterday at the White House, is historic. It hasn’t happened before, nor has Israel entered into such a deal since 1994 (with Jordan). The extent to which the deal is historically significant can be debated (but won’t be in this post). However, for those who wish Israel well (and who don’t have an ax to grind with Donald Trump or Benjamin »

The parable of Nancy Pelosi

Featured image Nancy Pelosi has done everything necessary to turn the story of her private visit to the closed hair salon in San Francisco into a timely political parable. The video below tells the parable in a form that is both compelling and enraging. Its power stems from its fidelity to the truth. I wish I could pay tribute to whoever is responsible for it, but I have no idea. I can »

The Shameless Mrs. Pelosi

Featured image We wrote yesterday about Nancy Pelosi’s blatant act of hypocrisy, in scheduling a hair appointment for herself at a salon that is closed to the public, as all salons are in San Francisco. But laws are for the little people, so Mrs. Pelosi, who constantly hectors the rest of us about COVID, took advantage of her wealth and power to ignore the law. The woman who owns the salon (the »

Nancy Pelosi, Queen of Hypocrisy [Updated]

Featured image San Francisco’s hair salons are shut down tight as part of California’s COVID hysteria. You can’t get your hair done–unless, of course, you are Nancy Pelosi. On Sunday afternoon, Pelosi had a private session for a wash and blow-out at a San Francisco salon. The salon owner, who was not involved in Pelosi’s appointment, blew the whistle. Here you see Pelosi walking through the salon–not wearing a mask, by the »

The not so great hydroxychloroquine debate

Featured image So, President Trump says he’s taking hydroxychloroquine as a preventive measure against contracting the Wuhan coronavirus. You have to give him credit. He has the courage of his convictions. Actually, it doesn’t require courage to take hydroxychloroquine as a preventative measure. The drug has been widely used to treat malaria and lupus for many decades. Like virtually every medication, it has side effects. However, it is not dangerous. The FDA »

House Bill Is a $3 Trillion Left-Wing Bonanza

Featured image Nancy Pelosi has unveiled an 1,800 page bill that provides for more than $3 trillion in new spending, ostensibly linked to the coronavirus. In fact, it is mostly must a liberal shopping list. This is, in summary form, some of what the bill contains: * Nearly $1 trillion for state and local governments, ostensibly to make up for anticipated budget shortfalls due to the virus. $540 billion is earmarked for »

How Does Pelosi Get Away With It?

Featured image Byron York asks a good question: “How does Nancy Pelosi get away with blocking desperately needed aid?” There is no dispute about what happened over the last two to three weeks, as thousands of small businesses were struggling–often unsuccessfully–to stay alive. Nancy Pelosi blocked federal aid to those businesses in order to pursue unrelated political goals. Pelosi didn’t stand in the way of aid for just an hour or two, »

Why Trump Will Win

Featured image Most current polls show Slow Joe Biden leading Trump by anywhere from 4 to 8 points, but this does not impress me very much. At this point in 1980, Jimmy Carter had a comfortable lead against GOP front-runner Ronald Reagan, too. Lots of state governors right now—even Michigan’s egregious Gwretched Whitless—have very high approval ratings, but I think this is a rally-round-the-flag effect that is as evanescent as a summer »

Forget it, Chris

Featured image As the Democrats hope to second-guess their way to victory over President Trump this November, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is doing her bit. According to her, Trump has done everything wrong. If only she and her colleagues were at the controls… When Pelosi appeared yesterday on FOX News Sunday — excerpt below, entire segment here — Chris Wallace played the February 24 news clip of Pelosi inviting tourists to come »

Corona meltdowns

Featured image The great Victor Davis Hanson eloquently chronicles the “Corona meltdowns” of Nancy Pelosi, the media, and Joe Biden in his American Greatness column of that name. This is his take on the media circus on we see in the daily White House coronavirus task force briefings: Watching the media deal with the daily White House briefings reminds the country that we have never had journalism of this low character before—not »

Pelosi barks

Featured image Nancy Pelosi is Exhibit A in Kim Strassel’s Wall Street Journal Potomac Watch column “Pols Face a Coronavirus Test.” Subhead: “Who’s leading and who’s seeking political advantage? Here are the answers.” Pelosi is the leading example of what not to do: Crises have a way of separating the leaderlike wheat from the opportunistic chaff. Coronavirus is the crisis of our time, and the political winnowing is something to behold. Example: »

Who’s Fiddling?

Featured image I don’t watch television, so I am spared much of the madness that most people have to absorb. But I take it that the Democrats and their press are still doing their best to blame COVID-19 on President Trump. This makes no sense, obviously, but when has that ever stopped them? On CNN on Sunday, Nancy Pelosi said, “As the President ‘fiddles,’ people are dying.” That is an absurd way »

Pelosi Caves

Featured image Nancy Pelosi has thrown in the towel on her attempt to misuse the Wuhan virus epidemic to sneak partisan legislation that has never been able to make it through Congress into law. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday that she will attempt to pass the Senate’s coronavirus economic stimulus package – putting aside the alternative, projected $2.5 trillion measure that she proposed. The California Democrat said she’ll try to pass »

Dems gotta Dem, Pelosi style

Featured image Congressional Democrats apparently count on the media to conceal the reason for the failure of the relief package on the floor of the Senate this week. The absurdly irrelevant provisions that Dems seek to incorporate to further the progressive takeover of the United States are meant to remain a deep secret. The current crisis — it’s not meant to go to waste, in the usual reckoning of the thought leaders »

Starring Nancy Pelosi

Featured image The Senate Republicans have tweeted out a one-minute video starring House Speaker Nancy Pelosi hard at work last night tearing up the text of President Trump’s terrific State of the Union Address. The video cleverly alternates moving highlights excerpted from the president’s address with the shots of Pelosi at work. I trust this will not be the last we will see of Pelosi’s uncreative destruction in Republican advertising this year. »

Pelosi’s pique

Featured image The distaff contingent of the House Democrats’ caucus attended the State of the Union address last night dressed in white. I had forgotten the meaning of the symbolism, although I did notice that no one’s attire exceeded Pelosi’s in whiteness. She was, preeminently, the woman in white. As President Trump moved into the wrenching heart of his speech, Pelosi demonstrated her disapproval with a variety of facial maneuvers. Like a »
