What is wrong with Nancy Pelosi? That question is coming up again as the House Minority Leader was seen on Saturday repeatedly telling the GLAAD audience to clap and botching simple words. Speaking of San Francisco, Pelosi said, “Our city is blessed with a large LGBTQ community, and a strong history of legacy— of advocacy…” A painfully awkward moment came when she had to tell the gay rights group to applaud for President Obama. “And we were very proud of the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell and President Obama was so very much a part of that,” Pelosi said, inserting an applause
“Well, I’m a master legislator. I am a strategic, politically astute leader. … My leadership is recognized by many around the country, and that is why I’m able to attract the support that I do, which is essential to our elections.” Nancy Pelosi about Nancy Pelosi
This from the woman who told us we have to pass obamacare to find out what´s in it. Nancy has been making no sense for sometime now and #1 is right dementia is probably the right diagnosis which has been evident for some time but no one in the swamp is willing to admit it publicly. Whether a member of Congress is mentally incompetent like Pelosi or Senator Cochran or violates the law the swamp protects them to the very end. The elites take care of elites not WTP.
Remember "We need safer guns and safer bullets"? Bulleting of kids is the Freudian slip that Nincompoop Nancy is famous for. I figure the Dems are going to go all in on banning bullets - all bullets. No more bullet sales and all bullets must be turned in. The media, psychologists, social workers, community organisers, celebrities and their ilk have more than likely received their talking points. Prepare for wall to wall coverage of the elimination of bullets from society. Its for the chirrun.
November 8, 2016, was a historic day as President Donald Trump pulled off one of the biggest political upsets in political history. But many of the details were lost in the crazy development of the late-night and early morning hours. We asked our Breitbart News staff, inspired by Esquire‘s behind the scenes look into the campaigns and some of the newsrooms, to share some of their election night memories with our readers. We hope you enjoy it and encourage everyone to post their own memories on social media or in the comments below.
Although there has been no shortage of commentary on former Democratic National Committee head Donna Brazile´s bombshell new book, Hacks, I want to zero in on one aspect of Brazile´s revelations that has been overlooked: Brazile inadvertently lifts the lid and shows what her party really thinks about women. Embedded in the book is a paternalistic (or perhaps in this case we should say maternalistic) attitude towards women. Brazile writes that after Hillary Clinton collapsed at an event marking the anniversary of Sept. 11, she considered, as apparently can be done by the DNC, replacing Clinton and running mate Tim Kaine
A reporter from NBC News tried to embarrass President Donald Trump while he was in South Korea speaking at a joint press conference alongside South Korean President Moon Jae-in in Seoul on Tuesday. While many of the questions centered around the Korean Peninsula, Ali Vitali brought up the issue of gun control in an overt attempt to grandstand. "You’ve talked about wanting to put extreme vetting on people trying to come into the United States," Vitali said with a smug tone. "But I wonder if you would consider extreme vetting for people trying to buy a gun." Trump called her out for choosing
After 62 days of testimony, closing arguments and now jury deliberations, CNN has only managed to devote a paltry 36 minutes out of their 24/7 news broadcast to the corruption trial of sitting Democratic Senator Bob Menendez. More than two-fifths of this coverage (14 minutes, 35 seconds) has been generated by one anchor: Jake Tapper, split between his weekday show The Lead and his Sunday show State of the Union. Most of CNN’s news programs, including the prime time shows Erin Burnett OutFront, Anderson Cooper 360 and CNN Tonight With Don Lemon, still haven’t covered the trial at all.
In late August, the veteran Democratic pollster, Peter Hart, held a focus group in Pittsburgh. He invited 12 local people, six of whom had voted for Hillary Clinton, one of whom voted for the far-left candidate Jill Stein, and five of whom voted for Donald Trump. The Clinton voters, not to mention the lone Stein supporter, were unhappy with President Trump´s performance in office. Asked for a brief description of him, they offered answers such as "unfit," "crazy," and "contemptible." The Trump voters weren´t particularly happy either, although they used words such as "disappointment" to describe the man they supported. What was
Here we go again. Another mass shooting, this time in a Texas church and we hear the same old mantra from Democrat leaders and the lamestream press. It´s guns. We need more gun laws to combat right wing hate speech that´s driving these incidents. If you´ve drunk the Kool-Aid, you don´t bother checking the facts and trust that these pseudo intellectuals know what they´re talking about. They will always drag out the name of Oklahoma bomber Timothy McVeigh and blame Republicans for not passing gun laws to prevent these murders. What they will not tell you is that most of these mass
What does Shalane Flanagan’s victory in Sunday’s New York Marathon have to do with President Trump’s proposal to repeal the estate tax? Most of the news coverage of Ms. Flanagan’s victory celebrated her victory: she’s the first American woman to finish first in that race since 1977. A few stories noted in passing that she is the daughter of Cheryl Bridges Treworgy, who was once the world record holder in the women’s marathon. I didn’t, though, see or hear anyone saying that diminished Ms. Flanagan’s accomplishment. Contrast the treatment of inherited athletic ability and inherited wealth. New York Times columnist Timothy
Saturday, November 4 was supposed to be the beginning of mass protests against President Donald Trump that every day would put "tens of thousands of people" into the streets and create "a political crisis in the country" to remove the president from office, a spokesman for the Marxist group Refuse Fascism told the Washington Post. What promised to launch an "Antifa apocalypse" for America proved instead to be not a bang, but a whimper. Only a handful of the usual radicals showed up in a few liberal cities to carry signs supplied by the Revolutionary Communist Party, which idolizes the Marxist
Former Democratic National Committee interim chairwoman Donna Brazile said Sunday that those who want her to keep quiet about what went on behind the scenes during the 2016 election can “go to hell.” “For those who are telling me to shut up — they told Hillary that a couple months ago — you know what I tell them? Go to hell,” said Ms. Brazile on ABC’s “This Week.” “I’m going to tell my story.” (video follows)
The United Nations has officially confirmed what many of us, including President Trump, knew already: the Paris climate accord was a complete waste of space. As UN Environment admits in its latest Emissions Shortfall report, even when you add up all the CO2 reduction pledges made by all the signatory nations at Paris, it still comes to only a third of what is supposedly necessary to stop the world warming by more than 2 degrees C by the end of this century. According to UN Environment’s head Eric Solheim, the world is heading for disaster: “One year after the Paris
Ben Carson’s campaign manager, Barry Bennett, was desperate to add to his list of foreign policy advisers in November 2015. More than 100 people had just been killed in the Paris terrorist attack, and Carson’s campaign was in a tailspin after one of his foreign policy advisers described the candidate as clueless on national security to The New York Times. As Bennet scanned resumes, one name jumped out to him: George Papadopoulos. Papadopoulos’s resume was thin. He listed his participation
President Trump’s declaration that opioid abuse is a public health emergency is sparking debate about addiction. Tragically, myths and misinformation are blocking the path to preventing more deaths. Start with the causes of the opioid crisis. On Face the Nation, Governor Christie, chairman of Trump’s opioid commission, blamed over-prescribing doctors. “This crisis started not on a street corner somewhere. This crisis started in the doctor’s offices and hospitals of America.” That’s untrue, Governor. It contradicts scientific evidence and lets drug abusers off the hook. At least three quarters of opioid pill abusers and almost all heroin addicts got hooked without ever
A day before Donald Trump arrived in Beijing for crucial talks, China arrested 3 prominent African-American athletes. It would be awful if this became a racial issue today back home. A new element could be introduced into the deal-making at the heart of presidential mission to East Asia, and these youths have a following. They all have head shots from UCLA (snip) If the Chinese wish to use this incident for bargaining leverage (and why wouldn’t they?), they could exchange lenient treatment of the matter, as an “administration violation,” which sounds non-criminal. But either way, the 3 men can be
Former CBS journalist Dan Rather appeared on NBC "Today" on Tuesday where he lamented on the American people´s lack of trust in the media. "There’s a recent poll that said nearly half of people think the media make up stories," host Savannah Guthrie noted. "The media itself is under fire." "What do you think the media needs to do better to enhance its own credibility?" she asked. "We need to do a better job, we need to do our job. Our job is to bear witness, to be honest brokers of information, to be as accurate and fair as we possibly can," Rather
If standard practices are applied, the three UCLA basketball players – including LiAngelo Ball – arrested Tuesday in mainland China under suspicion of shoplifting face between three and 10 years in prison if convicted, according to Chinese lawyers who briefed Yahoo Sports on the applicable laws. The sentencing guidelines could shift depending on the amount that the Chinese could prove was allegedly stolen. Authorities believe the players shoplifted from a Louis Vuitton store near the UCLA team hotel outside of Shanghai. The Bruins are in China to play Georgia Tech on Saturday in the season opener. The players were arrested Tuesday
When California lawmakers return to the Capitol in January, the state chapter of the NAACP will be seeking their support for a campaign to remove “The Star-Spangled Banner” as the national anthem. The organization last week began circulating among legislative offices two resolutions that passed at its state conference in October: one urging Congress to rescind “one of the most racist, pro-slavery, anti-black songs in the American lexicon” as the national anthem, and another in support of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who launched a protest movement against police brutality among professional athletes by kneeling when “The Star-Spangled
Maybe it was that whole “low energy” thing. In surprisingly undiplomatic terms for elder statesmen, George W. Bush and his father, George H.W. Bush, bash President Trump in a soon-to-be released book. While both of the former presidents vowed when they left office not to speak ill of their successors — a pledge they’ve kept for the most part — there’s just something about Donald J. Trump that they can’t stand. (Snip) “You can either exploit the anger, incite it, or you can come up with ideas to deal with it.” Jeb offered real solutions, “but it didn’t fit with
The Democratic party was “leeched it of its vitality” by Former President Barack Obama and others in the lead-up to the 2016 election campaign, according to Donna Brazile, former interim chair of the Democratic National Committee. “We had three Democratic parties: The party of Barack Obama, the party of Hillary Clinton, and this weak little vestige of a party led by [Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz] that was doing a very poor job getting people who were not president elected,” Brazile writes in her new book “Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in
Joe Biden writes in his new book that President Barack Obama once told him he would have appointed him president if he could and told him he´d "be the best president." The former vice president´s memoir Promise Me, Dad, delves into the death of his son Beau from brain cancer in 2015 and his ultimate decision to not seek the Democratic presidential nomination. In an interview with the New York Times, Biden said the subject of his son´s illness weighed on him and the president, whom he confided in as it became clear Beau would likely not survive. "Barack said:
Hillary Clinton is in secret negotiations with Christopher Steele, the author of the infamous Russian dossier, to purchase a second report that allegedly contains salacious new charges against President Trump, according to several sources with personal knowledge of the transaction. The talks with Steele, a former British spy, are being carried out by Hillary´s former campaign aides, who do not hide their bitterness over the shocking loss of the White House to Donald Trump, these sources say. ´Hillary´s people have been secretly in touch with Steele and are close to making a deal with him on opposition research that he claims has
Former interim DNC Chairwoman Donna Brazile said the Democratic party was "leeched of its vitality" by former President Barack Obama and others in the months leading up to the 2016 presidential campaign. (Snip) Obama "used the party to provide for political expenses like gifts to donors, and political travel," Brazile wrote, adding that the politician also used DNC funds for "his pollster and focus groups" later into his second term although he couldn´t run for president again. "This was not working to strengthen the party. He left it in debt. Hillary bailed it out so that she could control it, and Debbie went
The Country Music Association Awards got very political very quickly when the hosts opened Wednesday night´s show by mocking President Donald Trump Country music superstars Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood kicked off the 51s annual awards show by wearing eclipse sunglasses, poking fun at the commander-in-chief - who at one point looked at August´s solar eclipse without wearing eye protection. The pair also sang an opening song with the lyrics ´Maybe next time he´ll think before he tweets´, a play on Underwood´s hit song ´Before He Cheats´.
The wife of Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Brent Grimes claimed Tuesday morning the Oakland Raiders offensive line allowed Derek Carr to get hurt because he did not join the anthem protests. Miko Grimes made an appearance on “The Breakfast Club” where she emphatically claimed the star quarterback’s views on the anthem protests led to his offensive line allowing him to get crushed. She even went further and said his views led to locker room fights. “A lot of people don’t know, but the reason Derek Carr got injured was because the Raiders offensive line allowed him to get injured,” Miko
The results are in and New Jersey and Virginia have elected new Democratic governors. In New Jersey, former Goldman Sachs executive and Ambassador to Germany Phil Murphy expectedly defeated Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno by an estimated margin of as many as 14 points, and in Virginia, Lieutenant Governor Ralph Northam defeated former Republican National Committee Chairman Ed Gillespie by an estimated 7-to-8-point margin. Surely, New Jersey’s swing to a Democratic governor is a product of an unpopular outgoing Republican governor, Chris Christie, and President Trump’s unpopularity in the state as well. Further, outgoing Republican Governor Christie has the dubious status as New Jersey’s
