House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday the House of Representatives won't implement remote voting anytime soon despite growing concern from bipartisan members that in-person voting is dangerous given the deadly coronavirus pandemic.
"Our rules are our best protection," Pelosi told reporters Thursday when asked about modifying how the House votes. "... If the rules need to be changed, that has to be done carefully."


Now wait a second. It's ok, if not demanded that we mail/internet/phone OUR votes in, but when it's her vote, now it's a big security deal.

Remote Voting = Obamacare Redux. It is good enough for the general public, but not for the Congress. Got it.

Now I may safely assume there is no danger whatever to meeting together in groups greater than ten people since these desiccated old farts dare bring their august bodies into an assembly hall for the purpose of screwing us over once again. Gimme my hat; I'm going to church Sunday!

'We aren't there yet" translates to: DemocRATS haven't yet figured out a way to screw it up to their advantage.

Nasty Nancy knows voting in person with ID makes it more difficult to cheat....that's why she supports citizens voting by mail and ballot harvesting, but the House needs to vote in person.

Remote voting means she can't twist arms and force these nitwits to follow her over the cliff.

Why don’t you just vote for them, Nasty? Like Hitler said, once the people have voted and thus decided why make them decide over and over again.

In the House, there is a history of arm twisting by the Speaker. who could forget Dennis the homosexual pedophile Hastert, and the Medicare Part D vote?? how many hours were extended for that vote? The Speaker needs the members for hands on, or in Denny hastert's case, perhaps something else, but arms and other body parts have to be twisted. It is the sausage making part of legislating.

Article 1 Section 5 of THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION requires a QUORUM for either house to conduct business. Rep Massie is not a "grand stander" but a patriot.The Constitution says nothing about how the quorum can be met so it has to be assumed as in person. If they wish to vary from the Constitution then an AMENDMENT is required to clarify. These bipartisan self important "servants of the people" cowards expect ESSENTIAL peon employees to show up for work, so I reckon they are not essential

Nancy Nero Pignasty sets fire to the country and laughs and blames someone else while it burns to the ground. Anything to screw this country out of it's Constitution and civil liberties. The day next January after the new Members are sworn in and she hands the gavel back to the new Republican Speaker of the House should be a National Day of Prayer and thanks to God for his many blessings.

Medicare Part B premiums and deductibles for outpatient care will increase in 2020. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services announced the new 2020 rates Friday. For about 70% of Medicare beneficiaries, the premiums will rise nearly 7% to $144.60 a month, up from $135.50 in 2019. The $9.10 monthly increase follows a smaller $1.50 rise this year. Upper-income retirees pay higher premiums and those rates also are going up. The annual deductible for Part B coverage, which covers doctor visits and outpatient care, also will go up by 7% to $198 in 2020, an increase of $13 from the annual deductible of $185 in 2019.

An American Airlines mechanic accused of sabotaging an airplane in Miami this July reportedly had Islamic State-sponsored video content on his personal phone. Abdul-Majeed Marouf Ahmed Alani was accused earlier this month of inserting an object into the navigational system of the airplane that would tamper with airspeed readings. The plane detected the mechanical error shortly before taking off from Miami to the Bahamas and was promptly taken out of service, forcing 150 passengers to deplane and seek out other methods of travel.

As we reported two days ago, Joe Biden completely made no sense when he was trying to explain the Wuhan coronavirus relief bill. It was really bad and it explains why they’re afraid to have him deliver an address to Congress or do any kind of a real solo press conference, because at this point they have to be afraid this is all going to fall apart if he does anything live and this all becomes too obvious to the American people. But there’s only so long that they can hold this off. And it’s getting worse, as video today revealed. Biden was holding an event to announce the nomination

Democrat Senator Joe Manchin (WV) appears to have started to shift his views on the filibuster with remarks that he made on two news shows on Sunday morning.The shift from Manchin comes after he has repeatedly stated that he would not vote to end the filibuster, despite pressure from the far-Left. During the interviews on Sunday, Manchin repeatedly claimed that he was not open to ending the filibuster because he did not want to strip the minority party of their power in the Senate, but signaled that he was open to changing it.Fox News host Chris Wallace asked Manchin if he would consider “reforming the filibuster” if “Republicans

Nancy Pelosi’s top priority is to turn America into a one-party nation ruled by Democrats. Her bill HR 1 trashes the U.S. Constitution in an attempt to rig the system and make it virtually impossible to elect a Republican president or Congress again. It’s a power grab. The bill eviscerates state voting laws and forces all the states to conform to a set of rules that includes automatic voter registration. Anyone who goes to a DMV or applies for food stamps, Medicaid or other social services, or attends a public college will be automatically enrolled to vote. Noncitizens are obligated to identify themselves and opt out,

I keep calling him general, but my, my—the guy who runs that outfit over there,” Biden said.(Snip) Earlier at the event, Biden mentioned the Defense Department leader by his name, “Secretary Austin,” while appearing to read from a teleprompter.

I’m probably second to none in my dislike for Meghan Markle. There’s something unattractive about a mature woman marrying into the British Royal family with one of the world’s most expensive weddings, hanging out with the Queen, living in insane luxury…and then whining non-stop about the horror of her life. There’s something even less appealing when that woman accuses the Royal family of race hatred. And the problem is that, when it comes to that left-wing diva, Meghan Markle, it’s hard to believe most of what she says. After weeks of hype, CBS finally televised Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah.

Without question, the vast majority of Americans who support former President Donald Trump were angry and frustrated throughout 2020 passed with barely a mention of then-U.S. Attorney John Durham’s criminal investigation into the FBI’s fraudulent “Russiagate” counterterrorism operation directed at his 2016 campaign.In the weeks before the November election, word got out that then-Attorney General William Barr wasn’t going to announce any indictments or even a report on Durham’s investigation because he did not want to influence the outcome.So far, in fact, the only indictment to come out of the Durham probe is that of former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith, who essentially got a slap on the wrist

Rep. Steve Cohen vowed to renew the push to remove former FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover’s name from the bureau’s downtown Washington headquarters, according to an interview released Monday. Appearing on Yahoo! News’ Skullduggery podcast, the Tennessee Democrat said the effort is getting a fresh look after the release of a new movie highlighting the FBI’s secret program to discredit civil rights activists. The Washington Times in 2019 first reported Democrats’ bid to strip the longtime FBI director’s name from the bureau’s headquarters. Mr. Cohen said the impetus to revive the bid is the new movie, “Judas and the Black Messiah.” The movie details

“There must have been a moment, at the beginning, when we could have said –-no. But somehow we missed it.” Tom Stoppard The millions of Americans who were paying attention throughout the 2020 election campaign all became painfully aware of the fact that Joe Biden’s cognitive abilities were slipping and slipping fast. His wife, as the person closest to him, should have been the one to call the campaign quits in order to reduce stress on the man. Instead, apparently so anxious to become the First Lady by any means necessary, Mrs. Biden continued to push her failing husband’s campaign forward as if he were mentally qualified.
