Pelosi poses…

leave a comment »

Nancy Pelosi Thinks regaining the position of Speaker of the House means that she is the smartest,  toughest,  best leader of all time.   That hubris apparently led her to believe she could accuse Pres. Trump of “covering up”  some undefined matter and still be welcomed with open arms at a prearranged meeting on infrastructure shortly thereafter.   The President told Pelosi and Schumer he would  not meet  with them because of their fake investigations.

This appears to have stunned the two Democrats,  but that was merely for the cameras.   I am delighted with Trump’s  stout response,  because they have never had any intention of working with Trump on anything.  They never will.   It is all for show,  and they will tell any lie and pretend anything to win.   It’s what Democrats do.   And as more damning evidence emerges on the Obama Administration and its illegal and lawless behavior,  the progressives will only become more strident,  more hypocritical,  more deceptive,  more ruthless.  Get some popcorn…

Nancy and Chuck  started it,  but see how the Left is already extending the theater,  beginning  with Mad Maxine Waters

Sometimes you have to walk…

leave a comment »

Progressives and the Left will pillory Trump for walking away from the summit with North Korea,  but they would have done so if he had stayed and achieved what he wanted.   Speaker Pelosi  has already spoken,  in between having brain freezes and  a disobedient tongue.,  all in the course of slamming Trump for his failure.   The woman truly needs a neurological exam.   CNN reporter Jim Acosta  is gloating over the failure,  being too stupid to comprehend how long games are played.   To be fair,  he probably missed  this exchange.

The lede is his words,  and true negotiators know that when you can achieve nothing of substance,  you must  walk away in order to have the hope of later success.   His Oneness would still be there, bowing and conceding and arranging better photo ops.

CODEL Pelosi canceled…

leave a comment »

Trump not on,y canceled a CODEL trip,  he had Nancy Pelosi caught in a flat-out lie, but more importantly,  he prevented her from doing as she did to Bush in 2007 and trying to present an alternate foreign policy to a non-ally (Syria’s Assad, if you don’t remember).   And the move also provided  this picture  of luggage…

Nothing says FAILURE like having your luggage returned and put in the empty halls of Congress,  does it?   Don Surber explains  the owning perfectly.

Rich have walls…

leave a comment »

…why can’t we?   Average Americans have locks on doors and windows, and some even have security systems.  In his speech promoting a Southern border wall,  Pres. Trump pointed out that wealthy politicians “build walls, fences and gates around their homes.”   It is  the proper  point to make, since we have Pelosi claiming the wall is immoral, though she has voted to fund more than one of them here and elsewhere.

Scroll down the piece and you’ll see that the Obamas have walls with fences on top and a blocked-off street.  As I recall, the Clinton put in a large wall and didn’t bother getting a permit for the extra height.

Page program pulled…

leave a comment »

Alas,  impressionable youngsters like Monica Lewinsky will no longer have a presidential knee pad career path to internship,  though I’m astonished that Minority Leader Pelosi  agreed with  Speaker Boehner that the congressional page program should be killed.

Hey,  you save $5 million here and there,  and pretty soon it might add up to real money.

Rules? What rules?

leave a comment »

Speaker Pelosi has now granted her party in the House blanket authority  to circumvent the standard rules process and expedite floor votes through December 18th.

A dying rattlesnake is still very dangerous…

And speaking of  changing the rules,  read about how corrupt labor unions and a corrupt Obama Administration,  having rigged the rules,  are now changing them to benefit the labor unions  with regard to the Delta/Northwest merger.

Pelosi redux…

leave a comment »

Speaker Nancy Pelosi has  just announced that she will be running for House Minority Leader.   John Boehner is probably on the floor laughing at the extraordinary help he’s receiving from the Democrats.  The only thing better would be if she actually wins.

The NRCC has a prompt and  amusing response.

Does anyone with half a dozen functioning gray cells still believe the Democrats got the message the voters sent?

Now the question is what kind  of fight we’ll see over the position.
