Nancy Pelosi

House To Modernize But More Transparency Not on the Agenda

Mark Tapscott, The Epoch Times

Among Nancy Pelosi’s first moves as Speaker of the House was creating the Select Committee on the Modernization of Congress, but making the House more transparent—and thus more accountable to voters—got lost somewhere along the way. Political strategists from across the ideological spectrum expressed disappointment with the committee’s early performance. “The entire scope of the purposes of the committee is subject to potential abuse unless its work is done with great transparency,” warned Mark Fitzgibbons.

SCOTUS Endorses Trump Immigration Hardline… Again

Putting aside the debate over bogus asylum admissions at our front door, with the recent Supreme Court rulings supporting President Trump’s policies, shouldn’t there be a comprehensive effort to empower and direct ICE to begin deporting as many of these people as possible?

The Paul Ryan Border Disaster Forces Trump Veto

Keeping the focus of his veto message on the facts of the situation on the border was probably the wisest course for the President, but let’s be brutally honest; the reason President Trump was put in this situation was because of the abject failure, or perhaps outright treachery of former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan.

12 Republican Senators Vote To Maintain Disastrous Status Quo On Southern Border

The twelve Republicans who joined the Democrats and voted to disapprove President Trump's declaration of an emergency on our southern border represent a cross section of the fractured and out-of-touch Capitol Hill Republican Party’s coalition of virtue signaling windbags, constitutional nincompoops and globalist establishment tools.

The Two Americas Of The #2A

The Democrat Party’s radical attempts to infringe upon the liberties guaranteed by the Second Amendment is rapidly creating two systems of gun ownership; one in states where the letter and spirit of the Second Amendment is honored and one where state governments work to undermine it, if not repeal it.

Nervous Nancy Has Lost Control of Her Crazy Party

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Nothing like intra-pinko cannibalism. Turn the Democrat Party into the Donner Party. Sure, the Democrats’ pain is hilarious, but the fact that a major political party has surrendered itself to the zealots of an ideology that has murdered 100 million people is not so hilarious. Maybe if the socialists get in charge here, they won’t bring misery and murder. Maybe the ones in Congress now are so smart and competent that they can actually make this blood-splattered ideology work. But it’s going to be a hard sell for the Dems to get us to bet our lives on it.

Join Christians And Jews United In Protest This Thursday At Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Office

In response to the growing anti-Semitism in the Democratic Party, Rabbi Aryeh Spero of the National Conference of Jewish Affairs has announced an emergency action in Washington and invites all who oppose anti-Semitism to come together on March 14, at 1pm outside Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's office, 1236 Longworth House Office Building, 15 Independence Ave SE, Washington DC 20515.

Yes, The Southern Border Is At The Breaking Point

You know things are bad when the New York Times runs an article with the headline, “Border at ‘Breaking Point’ as More than 76,000 Unauthorized Migrants Cross in a Month.” We could quibble and point out they are illegal aliens, not “unauthorized migrants,” but why argue details when your enemies are finally helping you by telling the truth for a change?

Say It Ain’t So Rand, Say It Ain’t So

We think Senator Paul came to the conclusion to oppose President Trump's declaration of an emergency on our southern border without reading the entire Constitution. Otherwise he would recognize that Article II and Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution provide that the President has a constitutional duty to defend the borders and sovereignty of the United States that congressional dereliction cannot frustrate.

Eight House Republicans Join Democrat Gun Grab

HR 8 isn’t a crime prevention bill, it is part of the Democrats’ long-term plan to disarm the American citizenry to make us more pliable victims for the socialist utopia they plan to impose upon us. The next stop for HR 8 is the US Senate, we urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Senators TODAY. The toll-free Capitol Switchboard is (1-866-220-0044) urge them to vote NO on HR 8.

GOP Senator Thom Tillis Flakes On Border Emergency

We urge CHQ readers and friends to call Senator Thom Tillis and other Republican Senators and Representatives TODAY. The toll-free Capitol Switchboard is (1-866-220-0044) tell them there IS a national emergency on our southern border, and that under Article II and Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution the President has the authority and duty to declare an emergency on our southern border.

Where Are The House GOP Leaders On The Border Wall?

Democrats will vote today on a resolution disapproving Trump’s Declaration of a National Emergency at the southern border, but so far House Republican “leaders” have mounted no serious or even visible counterattack to the sustained battering Trump has received at the hands of Democrat Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the #NeverTrump foreign policy establishment.

Democrats Move To Disapprove Trump Wall Emergency

House Democrats plan to file a resolution today seeking to block President Trump's emergency declaration aimed at securing funds for building a border wall.  A vote by the full House is expected in mid-March. If the House passes the resolution, then the GOP-controlled Senate would be required by law to take it up.

Democrats Rush To Criminalize Gun Ownership

Our friends at Gun Owners of America recently sent out an alert about HR 8, the House Democrats’ first gun bill of the 116th Congress, saying, “Nancy Pelosi and her anti-gun team are either profoundly stupid or genuinely evil,” and after reading the anti-Second Amendment legislation Democrats are rushing through Congress, we’re going with genuinely evil.

Yes, There Is A National Emergency On Our Southern Border

Yes, we have a national emergency on our southern border when illegal aliens kill thousands of Americans every year and in southern Arizona’s Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, nearly half of all trails and sites are completely closed to the public due to high levels of illegal immigration and smuggling activities.

President Trump And Texas Governor Greg Abbott Can Use The Constitution To Build The Wall

Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution provides that the United States shall protect each state against invasion and domestic violence. With 369,000 illegal aliens arrested along the Texas – Mexico border last year and over 189,000 crimnal aliens arrested in Texas during the past decade Gov. Abbott has a textbook case for a request for assistance to repell the invaison and violence.

A Fake Border Security Bill

The worst parts of this bill are those elements that undermine the case for the declaration of an emergency at the border. That is the only way the Wall is going to get built, because it is clear that President Trump is not going to get any help from Capitol Hill’s Republican “leadership” and if the Wall is going to be built it will be done only through executive action.

Trump Weighing All Options For Wall Funding

It is clear that Capitol Hill’s establishment  Republicans have once again let down President Trump and the GOP’s conservative – populist base. The President is now weighing "alternative options" for building a border wall. It would be great if the Capitol Hill GOP would fight for the Wall, but if they won't President Trump should build it without them.

Congress Must #ReadTheDeal Before Voting

A 14-day continuing resolution would allow the House to go on their scheduled district work period and return to D.C. with a full week to work through amendments that will be needed by the Senate and White House to get the bill passed and signed into law.

Capitol Hill GOP Caves On Border Wall Deal

President Trump may be on to the Republicans’ lack of fire in the belly for the Wall when he panned the deal yesterday during a cabinet meeting and said, “I’m adding things to it.” It is clear to us where the problem lies in getting the Wall funded and built – with Capitol Hill Republicans where it has always been.
