The AOC-Pelosi War
Was Inevitable

For months now, almost since the opening of Congress, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have been at odds with each other. It started with gentle gibes, Pelosi talking euphemistically about AOC’s “enthusiasm,” for example. But over time it has grown more contentious, and now AOC is fighting back. (Snip) “The persistent singling out . . . it got to a point where it was just outright disrespectful . . . the explicit singling out of newly elected women of color.” She has even gone so far to somewhat bizarrely claim that she was loaded with excellent committee assignments just to keep her busy.

Pass the popcorn! Hopefully, America has not yet fallen for the Socialist siren call! Only the naïve young who are indoctrinated in the colleges and universities. I heard it years ago in my small university from one professor and recognized it for what it was. Heaven, help us!

Never thought Pelosi would appear as a voice of reason, relatively speaking. Too late though. Your party has outflanked you and has now embraced communism.

If there are now two camps of Democrats, they in fact are: 1. The deranged anti-American socialists 2. The deranged anti-American socialists I fail to see much difference between the two, much less a preference.

While it's satisfying to see our enemies fighting among themselves we shouldn't get complacent. As the old Democrat guard leaves us, we will have a House run by the Social Justice bunch forever. 75 years ago it was helpful that Hitler invaded his ex-ally, Russia, but look what happened for the next 60 years.

The only thing that would make this battle more entertaining would be if AOC happened to be 35 instead of 29 and she was one of the 24 coven members who are running for POTUS. As it is, Pelosi is controlling her full anger and contempt and trying to make the democrat party look sane. It's like holding a bunch of cats in a sack.

Their chronic lust for power, combined with their chronic dissatisfaction with anything short of utopia will always make them fight among themselves. They have nothing else in their lives but politics and politics makes little people like them feel as if they're actually important. Hence they struggle against one another. Look at the universities; they're as close to socialist cities as one can get and yet the radical students rally against the universities first. It's chronic and it's unending (and the universities which egg them on fully deserve them).

The three 'women of color' are going to run the show and Pelosi is clueless because she accused the President of racism and white supremacy now she's accused of the same thing.

True believers in communism are the destroyers of the system which cannot stand, whose rules and concepts are fundamentally bankrupt from the beginnning. Only by NOT implementing their "ideals" can they survive. As soon as the true believers get power, they will crash the system, because leftism ALWAYS fails.

Well there are four or five real blabbermouth Democrat socialists in the House of Representatives this term who are intent on making life for Nancy Pelosi as difficult as possible. Next term there could possibly eight or ten as the Democrat Party turns hard shell socialist. Apparently the real hard core Democrat socialist movement is trying to primary out a number of old line liberal Democrats some in the so-called Black Caucus and replace them with hard core Democrat socialists. It will be fun to watch.

The political misfits known as NeverTrumpers are begging for allies ahead of next year’s presidential election—and, as usual, they aren’t looking to the Right. This collection of failed magazine editors, Iraq War propagandists, washed-up columnists, Russian collusion pimps, and losing campaign consultants have dogged Donald Trump and his supporters for three years.

We’re currently witnessing one of the greatest attempts at mass bribery in history. With each passing week the Democrats running for the 2020 nomination offer yet another bribe for winning more votes. The most recent is Senator Kamala Harris’s $100 billion dollar plan for black home ownership. But this is child’s play compared to everything else the Democrats have either proposed or endorsed. Consider the 10-year cost estimates for some of the major plans that most, if not all, of the potential 2020 nominees have already embraced: Medicare for All, otherwise known as socialized medicine

Nancy Pelosi was probably not heartbroken when the fourth-ranking member of the House Democratic Caucus, Rep. Joe Crowley, was defeated in his 2018 primary by a bartender named Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Crowley had been seriously considered for House Minority Leader in 2016, and he might well have made a serious play for the House speakership had he been reelected in 2018. From Pelosi’s perspective, it must have seemed that she had lost a potential leadership rival and gained an easily managed back-bencher. Even after AOC began making demands concerning the membership and agenda of the Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming

I love those "Any Functioning Adult 2020" bumper stickers as much as any upper-middle-class suburban white liberal. But if I'm honest, it isn't really true. I will never vote for Donald Trump, but that doesn't mean I'll cast a ballot for any Democrat with a pulse. I would vote for no one rather than contribute to the victory of a candidate who fails to show minimal competence and capacity for responsible leadership. Judged by that standard, the Democratic field isn't looking very good right now. Yes, it's early. There's plenty of time to mollify my concerns. But at the moment, none of the leading candidates seem like serious contenders.

There must be another election coming up because Democrats are once again shamelessly pandering to black folks. Their latest ruse is reviving the idea of reparations—literally, race-based transfer payments from white Americans to black Americans. Can you believe that’s really a legislative priority for Democrats at a time when African unemployment is hovering at record lows. Nevertheless, 64 House Democrats are cosponsoring a bill that would establish a commission to work out the details of a national reparations policy, and the House Judiciary Committee recently held a hearing to draw public attention to the effort.

Tuesday afternoon, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals heard oral arguments in Texas v. Azar and aggressively interrogated attorneys defending Obamacare’s individual mandate. They seemed deeply skeptical that the mandate can survive constitutional muster unless the lawyers representing Democratic attorneys general in 21 states and the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives can produce more convincing arguments than they have thus far put forward. This may well endanger the entire health-care law. The general atmosphere during Tuesday’s hearing suggested that, if the individual mandate falls, Obamacare’s entire creaking edifice must go down with it.

Now that media-savvy congressional Democrats like Rep.

Last week, before President Trump departed for the G20 Summit in Japan, he told reporters on the White House lawn that his critics are now seeing he was right all along. “It’s humanitarian aid, it’s very important

This is the time of year when, all across America, disgruntled adolescents are dragged by adults to places they do not want to go. When they aren’t posing with frozen smiles for group photos, they sit sullenly in the back seat, texting their friends about the latest hellhole they have been forced to endure by their parents. Likewise, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was recently shamed into visiting a couple of the border detention facilities that she has been criticizing from the comfort of Congress. Her first act upon arrival was to throw a tantrum, complete with foot stamping, yelling and screaming.

The perversity of the illegal immigration debate was best captured by Thomas Sowell: “Immigration laws are the only laws that are discussed in terms of how to help people who break them.” And it would be difficult to find a better demonstration of Sowell’s sagacity than the reaction of the Democratic presidential candidates during last Thursday’s “debate,” when they were asked to affirm that “undocumented immigrants” would be covered by their respective health care plans. Everyone on the stage reached for the sky, thus surrendering the field to President Trump on the issue that got him elected in 2016.

And so it was that in Miami on Thursday night, in the second half of the first Democratic debate, former vice president Joe Biden became a punching bag. It started with Rep. Eric Swalwell taking a dig at the 76-year-old Biden's age by calling on him to "pass the torch" to a younger generation.

President Donald Trump should "admit that climate change is real" and start figuring out ways to confront it. That wasn't advice from prominent congressional Democrats Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer or Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez but rather from one of the president's staunchest allies in Congress: Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. "I'm tired of playing defense on the environment," Graham told reporters on Capitol Hill Wednesday as he and other GOP lawmakers announced the formation of the Roosevelt Conservation Caucus, which will "embrace and promote constructive efforts to resolve conservation and environmental problems." In response to a question about the president's environmental record, Graham said Trump should agree

Long before Jeffrey Epstein pleaded guilty to prostitution charges in Florida more than a decade ago, his fellow Palm Beach resident and hedge-fund manager Douglas Kass was intrigued by the local gossip about his neighbor. “I’m hearing about the parties, hearing about a guy who’s throwing money around,” says Kass, president of Seabreeze Partners Management. While stories about young girls swarming Epstein’s waterfront mansion and the sex parties he hosted for the rich and powerful were the talk of the town, Kass was more focused on how this obscure person, rumored to be managing billions of dollars, had become so wealthy without much of a track record. Kass was well-connected
