Nancy Pelosi belittles AOC and crew: ‘All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world’

Nancy Pelosi belittles AOC and crew All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter wo

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was once considered a hardcore progressive. Today, she’s the center-left moderate when compared to the likes of Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib. She’s even to the right of just about every Democrat running for president. This doesn’t represent a change in her perspectives. It represents the leftist shift of her party within an atmosphere of Trump-driven sentiment.

Democrats hate the President so much, many of them have gone further to the left than he is to the right in response. But Pelosi has remained consistent even if the scale has moved around her.

In an interview with Maureen Dowd for the NY Times, Pelosi took shots at the usual suspects: President Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and even threw in a jab at Ronald Reagan for good measure. But she was also dismissive of the “crew” of freshman Congresswomen who have been helping to drive the Democratic narrative far to the left. They criticized her for retreating on her border bill after the Senate passed one with fewer progressive aspects. But as Pelosi noted, the four radical progressives didn’t even vote in favor of Pelosi’s more migrant-friendly bill, so their complaints after the fact held no weight.

While noting this, she addressed their “power” with the irreverence of someone who doesn’t even recognize their challenges as a blip on her radar.

Pelosi feels that the four made themselves irrelevant to the process by voting against “our bill,” as she put it, which she felt was the strongest one she could get. “All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world,” she said. “But they didn’t have any following. They’re four people and that’s how many votes they got.”

She’s correct in asserting that they only represent four votes, but she’s wrong to disregard them as not having any following. Even many of the Democratic candidates are following them to some extent. Most are talking about “concentration camps,” decriminalizing illegal border crossings, and the Green New Deal, ideas that didn’t exist before the crew started talking about them. These four Congresswomen, particularly AOC, are thought leaders for a party that hasn’t truly rallied around anything other than Obamacare in the last three decades.

But Pelosi’s focus is on the great unifying rallying cry for Democrats: “Beat Trump.” Most Democratic voters would open up more detention centers, build a border wall, and abandon the Green New Deal forever if doing so would guarantee someone other than President Trump in the Oval Office before February, 2021. Pelosi knows this, which is why she’s playing her cards with only two goals in mind, beating the President and retaining control of the House. If they can take over the Senate as well, that’s the cherry on top for Pelosi.

As for the rest, it’s all just details to Pelosi. She doesn’t deal with details. She deals with power and retaining it supersedes all other considerations in her mind.

The Speaker is correct in putting the radical progressive freshmen in their places. I’ve never rooted for her in any of her efforts, but if she can help rid us of AOC, Omar, Tlaib, Pressley, and the Justice Democrats, I’ll start a slow clap for her.

Democratic mega-donor Ed Buck arrested after third overdose at his residence

Democratic mega-donor Ed Buck arrested after third overdose at his residence

When a second man died at Ed Buck’s home last year, we called on him to be investigated and arrested. But, as predicted, he was not. Now that a third man was overdosed but did not die, police have an eyewitness to the Democratic mega-donor’s penchant for injecting men with methamphetamine. Now, he’s been arrested.

Buck was arrested late Tuesday night and will be charged by the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office with running a “drug den” in which people come and exchange favors, likely sexual, for access to Buck’s drugs. Democrats who have received money from him in the past are scrambling to distance themselves from the progressive California “hero.”

Jasmyne Cannick, an activist and show personality who has been calling for Buck’s arrest from the beginning, could barely contain her excitement over the news.

Other Twitter reactions were as expected… harsh:

As Ed Buck prepares to face the judge Wednesday, those who have been calling for justice against this powerful man, such as Jasmyne Cannick, finally have hope that he will face the music for his alleged crimes against so many.

Conservatives need Elizabeth Warren to win the Democratic nomination

Conservatives need Elizabeth Warren to win the Democratic nomination

In politics, the idea of killing two birds with one stone is highly sought after. There are a ton of birds in DC, and knocking off more than one with a single action saves time, money, and energy. For conservatives, the two birds we need to knock off are the Democratic candidate who will eventually take on the President in the general election and the rising embrace of socialism among those who believe the Democratic establishment is done.

Beating either Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren would do the trick. But as the Sanders campaign seems to be sinking, the Warren campaign is surging. So it’s time for us to focus our efforts on learning everything we can about Warren and her policies in hopes she can win the nomination.

If former Vice President Joe Biden gets the nomination, President Trump should have no problem beating him. But doing so will only invigorate the radical progressives in the Democratic Party who believe their guy, Sanders, should have won in 2016. They believe the Democratic Establishment stole the election for Hillary Clinton. They will believe the same thing if Warren is beaten this year by Biden.

Sanders’ defeat to the Establishment launched the current popularity of socialism. A Warren defeat at the hands of Biden would make the socialist movement even stronger for 2024. But if President Trump crushes Warren, as he almost certainly would, then the socialists can no longer claim they were cheated. They won’t be able to play victim to the Democratic Establishment. They will have put up their chosen candidate and lost fair and square.

Socialism, as a result, will die in the political womb that it’s currently in.

Some fear Warren’s credentials and her ability to galvanize the people with her speeches. But as long as she’s promoting Medicare-for-All, the Green New Deal, and other radical policy proposals, she should be summarily trampled on by the lucid electorate in 2020. There’s no need to fear Warren. If anything, the only thing we should fear are the sheep who could fall for her sales pitch. If hat happens and Warren were to win in 2020, then America will get what it deserves for allowing the sheep to be led to the slaughter. As for the rest of us, we will be busy trying to rebuild after the debacle.

As much as I don’t like the prospects of a nation under a President Warren, I’m confident enough in the President’s campaign and the awareness of the American people to recognize the existential threat her policies represent.

Yes, impeachment is a distraction. Two of them, actually.

Yes impeachment is a distraction Two of them actually

There’s an obvious and not-so-obvious reason House Democrats are doing everything they can to focus the attention of mainstream media and the sheep who get their news from it (which is, unfortunately, a majority of Americans) on their attempts to take down President Trump. Both reasons are efforts to distract the people.

The first is the obvious one. They don’t want you looking at your paychecks. They don’t want you to notice the border crisis they once said was manufactured is real and getting worse. They don’t want you to seeing their presidential candidates pandering to climate change alarmists, radical Islamic groups, or gun control fanatics. They want you to think the President did something wrong, otherwise why else would the Democrats being continuing the failed Mueller investigation?

The second distraction is less obvious. They want you to not realize they’re doing nothing to address the nation’s problems. They don’t have time to approve the USMCA, which we desperately need to promote free trade going forward, because they’re too busy impeaching President Trump. They won’t address infrastructure despite the President’s willingness to work with them because doing so would go against their impeachment narrative. Their lack of attention to the border would be conspicuous if they weren’t distracting us with the non-stop hearings trying to dig up dirt on President Trump.

Impeachment is a a double-edged sword of distractions. It cuts in both directions, keeping the attention away from their failures as well as the nation’s wins under the President they’re trying to impeach. It’s a ludicrous abuse of power.
