Nancy Pelosi Has High Hopes for Reelection, Democrat Victories in Upcoming Midterms, Here’s What She Said

Published

on

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is in rather good spirits when it comes to this year’s midterm elections, optimistically believing it’s going to be a stellar year for the Democratic Party.

In fact, Pelosi is so confident she’s already predicting victory for herself and for many other Democrats running for office, which either makes her prophetic or delusional. You decide.

She said on Tuesday, “We will win. I will run for Speaker. I feel confident about it. And my members do, too.”

Shrugging off the possibility of her being challenged in her leadership role, Pelosi stressed the significance of her being the only woman who holds a top position in the House of Representatives, Senate and the White House, saying: “It’s important that it not be five white guys at the table, no offense. I have no intention of walking away from that table.”

But Pelosi’s negative public perception is even causing members of her own party to shy away from her, with Democratic candidate Conor Lamb paying for his own ads earlier this year in his Pennsylvania race saying that he “already said on the front page of the newspaper that I don’t support Nancy Pelosi.” Lamb won the seat in a Republican-leaning district.

Of course, while there’s a ton of folks who are distancing themselves from Pelosi due to her less than stellar public approval ratings, she’s not without her supporters:

“The problem that Pelosi complainers have is that no one can beat her. And that continues to be the case. Who’s going to beat Nancy Pelosi? There’s no one that can. So she’ll win in the Caucus, and then she’ll win on the floor,” said an unnamed ally of the Minority Leader.

In order to take back the House during the midterms this year, the Democratic Party must take 23 seats back from the Republicans, and while many progressives in the party are holding out hope for a “blue wave” to sweep the country, many folks are calling that a pipe dream.

Given the success President Trump is having with both the economy and foreign policy, in addition to the leftist media not learning their lesson in 2016, it’s looking very promising for the GOP this election season.

Let’s hope Republicans retain control so Trump can continue implementing his agenda and keep making America great again.

Mitch McConnell Blasts AOC’s Claim He Is ‘Complicit In Advancing Racism’

Good for him.

Published

on

Has anyone else noticed how hostile Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has become as of late? It seems she’s moved beyond just spewing pure idiocy and has decided to beef it up with a little bitterness. One of her most recent comments was against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell who she claims is complicit in advancing racism. Because when all else fails, just toss out the “R-word.” Well, McConnell decided to strike back at such a claim and totally shutdown AOC. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “I think it’s time to lore the rhetoric related to that subject all across America — everyone knows that’s nonsense,” McConnell replied to Fox Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo when addressed with the accusation. “I was there when Martin Luther King gave that ‘I Have A Dream’ speech. I was there as an observer when President Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act,” McConnell continued. “Look, I’ve got nothing to apologize [for] on this front. We ought to tone rhetoric down across the country. Throwing around words like racism, routinely applying it to almost everything — let’s talk about the issues.” McConnell’s response came two days after Ocasio-Cortez criticized him for not speaking out against President Donald Trump’s earlier remark that members of the so-called “Squad” should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.” The Squad, consisting of Ocasio-Cortez, Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib, and Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna Pressley, addressed the heated exchange Monday, and further attacked Trump on a variety of fronts, claiming that he was promulgating a white nationalist agenda and “allowing millions of Americans to die from lack of health insurance.” “[The Squad] wants to take America into a socialist country — I think it’s important to remember that you don’t need…

Berkeley Changing Name For City’s ‘Manholes’ To ‘Maintenance Holes.’ The Reason Why Is Ridiculous

This is just plain stupid.

Published

The city of Berkely, California has decided to change the name of the city’s “manholes” to “maintenance holes” as part of an effort to remove gendered language from the city’s legal code so they can be more “inclusive.” Folks, the insanity that left-wing progressivism ultimately leads to and why we must fight hard to stop it. via Daily Wire: NBC News reported that on Tuesday, the city council adopted a first reading of a new ordinance which removes “gender preference language” from Berkeley’s municipal code. NBC also reported that city council member Rigel Robinson, the youngest member of the council, orchestrated the new ordinance. “It is Berkeley being Berkeley, and what that means is it’s Berkeley being inclusive,” Robinson told the outlet’s bay-area affiliate. “A male-centric municipal code doesn’t reflect the reality of the city of Berkeley.” The full list of changed words is reminiscent of the decades-old move to change words that typically end in “-man” to ending with “-person,” such as “salesperson” instead of “salesman.” But the Berkeley list goes further, changing words in a way that would make a Gender Studies professor proud. Instead of “manhole,” city code must now say “maintenance hole.” Instead of “brother” or “sister,” city code must now say “sibling.” Instead of “manpower,” city code must now say either “human effort” or “workforce.” The term “manmade” is also getting scrubbed. It is to be replaced with “human-made” or “artificial,” or “manufactured.” Yeah, we’re just as surprised as you about the inclusion of “MANufactured,” but apparently it’s allowed. The word “master” is now replaced “captain,” “skipper,” or “pilot.” Yes, this is totally for real. This isn’t just another prank article or satire. These folks are legitimately this crazy. Political correctness is destroying America, ravaging freedom of speech, one of the most important, foundational truths…
