Nancy Pelosi Backtracks on ‘Crisis’ Talk in Stunning Border Reversal

The ‘resistance’ is NOT going to like this.

Nancy Pelosi

To put it bluntly, and in a nod to the 1990’s, we’ll just say:  No duh, Nancy.

For years, and likely decades, the southern border of the US has been a dangerous place.  Still, people from all around the world attempt to traverse this no-man’s land to enter the United States – a land of dreams and hope for many.

They risk it all:  Harsh environmental conditions, possible arrest by American border authorities, the brutality of the Mexican drug cartels who patrol the areas, and the insidious nature of the unscrupulous “coyotes” who are tasked with providing passage.

By allowing these migrants to endure these conditions, US immigration policy has, for years, been perpetuating this crisis.  Unfortunately, in a nod to their “resistance”-minded base, the democrats have been obstructive to the President’s plans for a border wall – something that would help funnel these would-be Americans to legal and humane points of entry while deterring the ne’er-do-wells who wish to take advantage of the open country.

This schtick is costing the democrats dearly, however, and even Nancy Pelosi has been forced to backtrack on her previous stance as the border crisis becomes undeniable.

“Well, let me just say this. We have never not said that there was a crisis — there is a humanitarian crisis at the border, and some of it provoked by the actions taken by the administration,” Pelosi stated during her weekly press conference in the Capitol Visitor Center on Wednesday.

Of course, these statements run counter to Pelosi and her fellow democrats have been saying for years.

During a joint press conference in January, Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) accused the president of using the “backdrop of the Oval Office to manufacture a crisis, stoke fear, and divert attention.”

Further, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said of the situation at the Southern border after a visit to El Paso, Texas: “The first, most dramatic thing we found was there is no crisis.”

Democrats have one last obstacle to face, it seems:  How to appease their anti-Trump base when the party is clearly aligning with the President on this very real, time-sensitive matter.

REVEALED: Photo Emerges Showing Liberal Canadian Prime Minister In ‘Brownface’ (Details)

Imagine if he was conservative…

Virginia’s Democrat governor, Ralph Northam, was busted for past photos showing him wearing “blackface.” Nothing happened. Northam still holds office. On Wednesday, at least one photo emerged of radically far-left Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in “brownface.” LOOK: NEW: Justin Trudeau Wore Brownface at 2001 ‘Arabian Nights’ Party While He Taught at a Private School https://twitter.com/yashar/status/1174455955737776129?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1174455955737776129&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-blackface-photos-emerge-of-canadas-prime-minister-justin-trudeau%2F From Time: Justin Trudeau, Canada’s prime minister, wore brownface makeup to a party at the private school where he was teaching in the spring of 2001. TIME has obtained a photograph of the incident. The photograph has not been previously reported. The picture was taken at an “Arabian Nights”-themed gala. It shows Trudeau, then the 29-year-old son of the late former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, wearing a turban and robes with his face, neck and hands completely darkened. The photograph appears in the 2000-2001 yearbook of West Point Grey Academy, a private day school where Trudeau was a teacher. Earlier this month, TIME obtained a copy of the yearbook, The View, with the photograph of Trudeau in brownface from Vancouver businessman Michael Adamson, who was part of the West Point Grey Academy community. Adamson was not at the party, which was attended by school faculty, administrators and parents of students. He said that he first saw the photograph in July and felt it should be made public. Justin’s reaction: https://twitter.com/PnPCBC/status/1174480007881744385?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1174480007881744385&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F https://twitter.com/PnPCBC/status/1174480742203711488?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1174480742203711488&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F https://twitter.com/iD4RO/status/1174480977382576129?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1174480977382576129&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F Trudeau should not have to resign and Northam shouldn’t have had to, either. The problem is that if these beta males were conservatives, they would’ve been forced to resign. That’s the difference. That’s the problem.

RNC Raises Record Amount of Cash, Then Trolls Dems On Kavanaugh Impeachment Push

Sounds like a good day at the office!!

Raising money and trolling Democrats? That’s an easy win-win for Republicans. Both of those things happened on Wednesday. From Daily Wire: The Republican National Committee (RNC) had some good news for President Trump this week about its historic fundraising efforts — and some fun with Democrats in the process over their “help” with the GOP’s surge in donations and the Dems’ doomed “impeach Brett Kavanaugh” strategy. […] Together, the Trump campaign and RNC have brought in an impressive $210 million since the start of 2019, which is “more than all the current Democrats seeking to replace Trump raised combined during that period,” Fox notes. The RNC smashed another fundraising record last month. Between @realDonaldTrump’s accomplishments and our grassroots infrastructure, Republicans are going to be unstoppable in 2020! https://twitter.com/GOPChairwoman/status/1174310576228589568?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1174310576228589568&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F51938%2Frnc-announces-record-setting-fundraising-haul-james-barrett To all the Democrats who demonize half the country… To all the Hollywood liberals who want us boycotted… It’s because of you that @realDonaldTrump’s team is raising over $15 MILLION in California. Thank you! https://twitter.com/GOPChairwoman/status/1174087336013029379?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1174087336013029379&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F51938%2Frnc-announces-record-setting-fundraising-haul-james-barrett “’Innocent until proven guilty’ no longer applies. Republicans are guilty of whatever Democrats accuse them of, and when the evidence comes up short, we are still ‘not exonerated.’” – @LizRNC https://twitter.com/GOPChairwoman/status/1173992845704908800?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1173992845704908800&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F51938%2Frnc-announces-record-setting-fundraising-haul-james-barrett
