House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on Monday that she is “confident” that Democrats will win the midterm elections on November 6 and that she will be elected Speaker of the House.
However, she said, since “45” had won — she declined to refer to him as “president” throughout the interview — she would stay and run for speaker, partly to inspire other women. Continue reading →

Nancy Pelosi ROASTED For Appearing as Guest Host on Jeopardy!
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) appeared on Jeopardy! Friday evening as a guest host to read ‘clues’ to the contestants. Even with the professional editing, and no doubt multiple takes to get it just right, Pelosi slurred her way through as she read the clues to the contestants.
Jeopardy! fans were not happy with Pelosi’s appearance as a guest host; as expected, she pushed left-wing, open-borders propaganda on the show.
The pile of links just keeps a-gettin’ higher. I may have to break this into two different posts. That’s okay, DW isn’t around and there’s nothing on my busy social calendar today. Lucky you.

Way back in 1965 Jody Miller did a parody of Roger Miller’s song, King of the Road, called Queen of the House.
These days we have at least two “queens” in the House, deranged, maniacal, as clueless about the real world as Alice’s rabbit. I’m speaking, of course, of Gasoline Maxine and Nasty Pelousy. They are shining examples of today’s Democrat icons. Their secret lies in the complete ignorance and moonbattery of their voters. All you can think of when you hear their incoherent babble is how did this happen to our country?
Maxine Waters: 70 Percent Of Women Want To Impeach Trump
WHEN YOUR DISTRICT IS FULL OF CRIMINALS AND PARASITES YOU CAN SAY ANYTHING AND GET AWAY WITH IT.
“Everywhere I go, people are talking about, ‘Why can’t y’all get rid of him? Why can’t you impeach him?’” Waters said. “They say all of these things and I’m not just talking about my district — whether I’m on the airplane, I’m walking down the street in New York, wherever I am — I’m hearing it.”
Waters then claimed that 70 percent of women want the president impeached, but did not cite any evidence to back up her claim.

Fearless College Student Calls Out Nancy Pelosi About Her ‘Crumbs’ Comments to Her Face
A fearless college student confronted House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) about her previous attacks on Trump’s tax cut, where she referred to the plan as “crumbs.”
Nancy Pelosi slurred her words and marred her face as she tried to answer the student with her liberal double-speak.
You’ve spoken about the effects of the Republican tax plan, specifically referring to its effects on average Americans as ‘crumbs,’ as the son of small business owners, I know that it’s helped my parent hire more employees. It’s helped us pay off our mortgage, helped put me through college.”
“Would you still refer to the effects of this tax plan on average Americans as crumbs?” the college student asked. http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2018/04/fearless-college-student-calls-out-nancy-pelosi-about-her-crumbs-comments-to-her-face-video/

Confident Pelosi: Dems Ready to Push Amnesty, Gun Control ‘When We Win’ in Nov
A confident House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) predicted on Tuesday that Democrats will take back the House and immediately push for amnesty for so-called Dreamers and more gun-control legislation.
“When we win and we take over in January, some of the issues that will come up soon are some of the issues that we are asking the Speaker to do right now,” she said at a Georgetown University event.
Pelosi then said Democrats are set to push “gun-violence legislation and background-checks legislation” in addition to “legislation on the Dreamers.”
Maxine Waters Hopes ‘Cohen Tapes’ Give Democrats ‘Treasure Trove Of Information’
Democratic California Rep. Maxine Waters hopes an FBI raid on Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, provides Democrats with a “treasure trove” of information with which to impeach Trump, she said in a new interview.
“I am certainly working toward his impeachment,” Waters told Variety Magazine in an interview published Wednesday. “I think Mueller is doing a great job. I am hopeful that the Cohen tapes will be a treasure trove of information that will help move us toward that,” Waters said. http://dailycaller.com/2018/04/25/maxine-waters-trump-impeachment/
Maxine Waters to Trump: ‘Please Resign’ so I Don’t Have to Impeach You
The interviewer asked Waters if she had any advice for the president, and the California Democrat did not mince words.
“Please resign,” said Waters, one of Trump’s most vocal critics, after being honored at the Time 100 Gala in New York. “So that I won’t have to keep up this fight of your having impeached because I don’t think you deserve to be there. Just get out.” http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/04/25/waters-trump-please-resign-dont-impeach/

California School District Says Parents Can’t Pull Kids Out Of New LGBT Sex Ed Class
IN CALIFORNIA THE STATE HAS TAKEN COMPLETE CONTROL OF ALL CHILDREN TO INDOCTRINATE THEM IN LIBERALISM.
California passed a law called the California Healthy Youth Act in 2015 to promote “healthy attitudes” about “gender [and] sexual orientation.” The law is meant to teach students about the “effectiveness and safety of all FDA-approved contraceptive methods” and allow for “objective discussion” about “parenting, adoption, and abortion.”
However, the Orange County Board of Education has decided that parents don’t have a right to exclude their kids from the class, LifeSite News reports. A memo from the Orange County Department of Education general counsel Ronald Wenkart on March 29 stated that the opt-out provision “does not apply to instruction, materials, or programming that discusses gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, discrimination, harassment, bullying, intimidation, relationships, or family and does not discuss human reproductive organs.” http://dailycaller.com/2018/04/20/california-school-district-parents-lgbt-sex-ed-mandatory/ Police chief dealt tough lesson after he apologizes to hip-hop crowd for ‘200 years’ of police abuse
With the City of Baltimore setting a new record in 2017 for killings per capita, where 86 percent of the victims and 85 percent of the suspects had prior criminal records, what do you suppose the police commissioner busies himself with?
Baltimore Police Commissioner Darryl De Sousa, accompanied by Mayor Catherine Pugh, took to the stage Wednesday night at a hip-hop concert to apologize for “200 years” of bad police behavior.
“I want to take the time to apologize for what policing did and I promise you we’re going to make a change in the future,” he added.
And while there were a few cheers, not all concertgoers approved, as De Sousa was jeered, booed and flipped off, as seen in a video posted on Instagram.
Diamond and Silk to Testify Before House Judiciary Committee over Facebook Censorship
THAT SHOULD BE INTERESTING
The duo, whose real names are Lynnette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, will attend a panel alongside Corynne McSherry of the Electronic Frontier Foundation and CEO of the News Media Alliance David Chavern to “examine social media filtering and policing practices.”
Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), a leading voice on social media censorship who grilled Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on the issue last week, will also testify before the committee. Rep. Blackburn recently received President Trump’s endorsement in her bid to become Senator from Tennessee.
Representatives from companies such as Facebook, Google, and Twitter were also invited, although it is unclear whether they will attend. http://www.breitbart.com/tech/2018/04/20/diamond-and-silk-to-testify-before-house-judiciary-committee-over-facebook-censorship/

GOP faces rural rebellion over Trump trade agenda President Donald Trump’s trade policies are confounding Republicans as rural voters — his strongest supporters — stand to get the short end of the stick just months away from the midterms.
THIS IS FROM THAT SNIVELING LITTLE RAT BASTARD, JONATHAN ALLEN
Now Steffen, who didn’t vote for Trump, is a vocal supporter of Jane Raybould, the Democrat running an improbable campaign against first-term Sen. Deb Fischer, R-Neb. — and says he’s talked to a lot of fellow farmers and Republicans who have “buyer’s remorse” about Trump and Fischer.
While it would take a political tsunami for Fischer to lose — Trump won the state by 25 percentage points — the president’s trade agenda has boxed in congressional Republicans as they fight to hold their majorities in the House and Senate, potentially affecting competitive races in more than a dozen states.
They’re reluctant to distance themselves from a president who is following through on campaign-trail trade promises, whose support they need to drive Republican turnout and who vows his strategy will yield better deals for the country in the long run. https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/politics-news/gop-faces-rural-rebellion-over-trump-trade-agenda-n866456
NYT Reporter: I Cried Writing About How Donald Trump Totally Destroyed Clinton
I’m sure you all enjoyed the endless clips over at Clinton campaign headquarters in New York City on election night 2016. The scores of crying Democrats stunned, shocked, and totally devastated that Lady Macbeth would never become president—ever. Yet, members of the news media also exhibited those feelings of despair. Cortney wrote about The New York Times’ Amy Chozick, whose new book about the 2016 election suggests that Hillary Clinton was fully aware that people thought she sucked. Chozick wrote that Clinton told a pollster, “Oh, what’s the point? They’re never going to like me,” speaking about her image, along with not being happy at all about a potential presidential bid launched by then-Vice President Joe Biden. If Clinton was referring to the GOP voters, specifically those in the white working class, she should have tried to do something on this front.
Democrats Lawsuit Alleges Conspiracy Between Trump’s Campaign, Russia, Wikileaks to Disrupt 2016 Election
DEMOCRATS’ COMPLAINT ALLEGES THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN COLLUDED WITH THE RUSSKIES TO HACK INTO DNC SERVERS.
TROUBLE IS, THE COURT WOULD ALLOW THE TRUMP PEOPLE TO EXAMINE THE DEMOCRAT SERVERS, WHICH CONTAIN A LOT OF STUFF THEY DON’T WANT MADE PUBLIC.
The DNC wants “millions of dollars in compensation to offset damage it claims the party suffered from the hacks.” Wikileaks published tons of emails from the DNC in the summer of 2016 right before the convention. The documents showed collusion WITHIN THE DEMOCRAT PARTY to prop up failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton over Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).
Democrats insist that Russia does not have the sovereign immunity many countries have “because the hack constituted a trespass on the party’s private property. The lawsuit alleges that “Russia engaged in a ‘brazen attack on U.S. soil.” https://legalinsurrection.com/2018/04/democrats-lawsuit-alleges-conspiracy-between-trumps-campaign-russia-wikileaks-to-disrupt-2016-election/

Illinois Senate considering bill to give kids access to medical pot at schools
SEE? ILLINOIS DEMOCRATS KNOW HOW TO DO SOMETHING BESIDES IMPOSE OBSCENE TAX AND FEE INCREASES ON THE CITIZEN VICTIMS TO FEED THEIR CROOKED MACHINE.
The bill was brought to the floor after the family of 11-year-old Ashley Surin filed a federal lawsuit against the state and Schaumburg School District 54 for failing to include public schools among the places people can possess medical cannabis. Surin has been prescribed medical cannabis to treat seizures related to a leukemia diagnosis.
After four years of trying out traditional medications, Surin’s doctors prescribed medical cannabis. She wears a patch on her foot, which contains small amounts of THC. She also sometimes puts oil drops containing THC on her tongue or wrists to regulate her seizures.
A judge ultimately ruled in favor of the family later that month, allowing Surin to bring her medication to school. https://chicago.suntimes.com/?post_type=cst_article&p=1048005

Green-haired turtle that breathes through its genitals added to endangered list With its punky green mohican, the striking Mary river turtle joins a new ZSL list of the world’s most vulnerable reptiles.
It sports a green mohican, fleshy finger-like growths under its chin and can breathe through its genitals.
The Mary river turtle is one of the most striking creatures on the planet, and it is also one of the most endangered.
The 40cm long turtle, which is only found on the Mary river in Queensland, features in a new list of the most vulnerable reptile species compiled by the Zoological Society of London (ZSL).
Despite the turtle’s punk appearance – derived from vertical strands of algae that also grow on its body – its docile nature made it historically popular as a pet. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/apr/11/green-haired-turtle-that-breathes-through-its-genitals-added-to-endangered-list

Pittsburgh police detectives will report for duty with riot gear Thursday, in anticipation of a potential large scale protest should President Trump decide to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Planned Parenthood Leads Coalition to Spend $30 Million on Democrats in Mid-Terms

The political arm of taxpayer-funded Planned Parenthood is leading a coalition of left-wing groups in an organized effort to spend $30 million to elect Democrats in the mid-term elections this year and regain control of Congress.
The focus of the campaign – dubbed “Win Justice” – will be to mobilize people who vote infrequently but are sympathetic to liberal causes, particularly minorities, women, and young people. http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/04/18/planned-parenthood-leads-coalition-spend-30-million-democrats-mid-terms/

Senator who called for Trump’s assassination demands slave reparations…counts herself among the beneficiaries

Cue Missouri state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal, the Trump-hating Democrat, who is calling for reparations for former slaves, according to The Kansas City Star.
Well, considering there are no former slaves alive today, the default payees would be current relations to the slaves — which conveniently includes the senator, according to her testimony. https://www.bizpacreview.com/2018/04/13/senator-who-called-for-trumps-assassination-demands-slave-reparations-counts-herself-among-the-beneficiaries-623436

Uprooting the entire tax law would inflict massive tax increases on nearly every American family. Approximately nine-in-ten taxpayers are experiencing a reduction in their tax burden thanks to the new policy, on which every last Democrat in Congress voted ‘no.’ Republicans’ parallel programs of de-regulation and tax relief have helped fuel and sustain a sizzling US economy, the positive effects of which are simply undeniable. https://townhall.com/tipsheet/guybenson/2018/04/05/pelosi-you-bet-democrats-are-going-inflict-massive-middle-class-tax-increases-if-we-win-n2467855
A huge champion of the poor, Nancy Pelosi’s $22 million Napa home boasts tennis courts and a Bocci ball court. She is lucky enough to also have a helicopter landing pad.
Being poor is GREAT! Just not for Nancy
A political creation of unions, she employs ZERO union people at her vineyard and at her luxurious bed & breakfast, Auberge de Soleil, where a burger and fries will set you back $22 before tax and tip.
The same is true of the 16-branch, upscale restaurant chain Pelosi partners in, Piatti, located in 5 states in the USA, shown below. Of the nearly 1,000 employees working there, ZERO are members of a union.
Employing union people is FANTASTIC!!! Just not for Nancy
Pelosi also played a critical role in exempting American Samoa, where 80% of the island works for Starkist Tuna, from a mandatory minimum wage hike, from $5.35 per hour. Advocate For The Poor Pelosi is a major Starkist shareholder, you see.
Bad working conditions, and $5.35 each hour. Sorry Charlie..!
In a single year the bar tab for Pelosi’s huge government plane exceeded $100,000 — one time she diverted it over 1,000 miles in order to pick up a single order of chocolate-dipped strawberries.

Behold the highly ethnic, hardscrabble Pelosi clan below, decked out in gangsta finery in South Central Napa Valley:
If the Republican party had a death wish, they accomplished it yesterday. They passed a horrific omnibus spending bill much to the delight of the Democrats. The bill was over 2300 pages and they were given less than a day to read it. Most of them leave the reading of legislation to their staff, as they can’t be bothered with such triflings. 90 Republicans voted against the bill, along with 77 Democrats. Did you get that? More Republicans opposed this spending orgy than the Dems did. As in Jonestown, most drank the Kool-aid willingly, while some had to be forced. The Democrats only need to pick up 23 seats in November to take back the majority. According to Rasmussen, there are at least that many Republican seats in serious peril, plus more than 20 that are leaning Republican or tossups. The Republicans got some additional military spending, to try to counter the slashing Obama did during his reign of terror.
RYAN-PELOSI UNIPARTY Easily Passes Record $1.3 Trillion Omnibus That Spits in Face of GOP Voters
Meadows pointed out the giant flaws of the plan:

[CtH: Dear Lord, We are very disappointed by the “business as usual” budget vote that the Republocrats passed. Please move those of us who care about having a small government OF the PEOPLE, FOR the PEOPLE, and BY the PEOPLE to work our butts off booting out the Elitist Big Government Republicans who work hand-in-glove with the Elitist Big Government Democrats and replacing them with Populist Republicans who will actually run the country the way most of us want it run. Amen.]
Michael Mukasey told the press yesterday that Trump will sign the spending bill. He has to. If the government were to shut down he would be eviscerated by the left. Bill Clinton got away with shutting down the government by blaming Newt Gingrich. Obama got away with it because he was never blamed for anything. The time for him to act would have been long before now. Now it’s too late.
10 ways the GOP sold you out in the omnibus spending bill
How ironic that Republicans will pass what is likely to be their last major bill before losing Congress by violating their pledge to America in 2010, when they captured Congress, promising to post all legislation for 72 hours before a vote.
Taken in totality, this bill validates, legitimizes, and codifies the world view of the Democrats, only with slightly less enthusiasm. Which is why the Democrats are crushing Republicans in turnout so far this election season. This bill will essentially end Republican control of Congress.
[CtH: My fellow Republicans: LETTING DEMOCRATS TAKE OVER IS TOTALLY THE WRONG WAY TO FIX CONGRESS! Everybody is saying how the Democrats are cheering this budget. So duhhhhhhhh … how the heck would giving them majority control help?! We need to chuck out the ELITIST REPUBLICANS who LIE to our faces every campaign season (remember John McCain on Obamacare?!) and replace them with POPULIST REPUBLICANS who actually believe in the small government principles the GOP keeps telling us about every campaign season.]
Exclusive–Rep. Paul Gosar: Omnibus Is Christmas in the Spring for Liberals and Special Interests
Sadly, the bill contains many more provisions that run counter to the conservative principles that we as Republicans were elected to implement. For example, the Omnibus includes provision inserted by liberal California Senator Dianne Feinstein which blocks a 56 million-ton sand and gravel mine from opening in the Soledad Canyon in California despite two contracts being competitively awarded to a company that has already invested $40 million. This amounts to nothing more than a land grab.
Schumer: Spending deal brings end to ‘era of austerity’
‘We Democrats are really happy with what we were able to accomplish’
According to Schmuck, America has suffered 10 years of austerity. That’s coming to an end. Democrats are totally convinced that government spending is the key to economic growth.
“We Democrats are really happy with what we were able to accomplish on a number of priorities that Democrats have fought for all along – infrastructure, education, opioid relief, and more,” Mr. Schumer said of the spending bill.
“At the end of the day, as the minority party, we feel good about being able to succeed in so many ways,” he said. “We don’t have the House. We don’t have the Senate. We don’t have the presidency. But we produced a darn good bill for the priorities that we have believed in.”
For the life of me I don’t understand why the Republicans are so generous to the Democrats. Their generosity is never reciprocated. Dems take and take and take and give nothing. It’s what defines them. When they take control in January you can be sure Republicans will be locked out of committees, will not be allowed to offer any legislation, and will have Pelosi’s foot on their necks from day one. Maxine Waters has probably already written a draft of the impeachment articles she will present about 10 minutes after they’re gaveled into session. They never even put up a fight.
