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.

The suspect involved in the killing of three individuals and the wounding of several others at Naval Air Station Pensacola was apparently a Saudi Arabian aviation student. Authorities investigating the shooting that occurred on Friday are working to find out if the incident is terrorism-related. The suspect, as of this writing, has not yet been named, though it is known this individual was here in the United States to receive flight training. Here’s more from Washington Examiner: The U.S. Navy confirmed that the gunman and two other people were killed in the mass shooting, which took place in one of the base’s classrooms. Eight people were transported to the hospital where an additional victim died. Two of those wounded in the shooting were deputies who engaged in a shootout with the man. One was shot in the arm and another in the knee but both are expected to survive. The gunman was killed shortly before 8 a.m. by other responding law enforcement officers. More than 23,000 military and civilian personnel work at NAS Pensacola. It’s considered one of America’s oldest stations and is known to be the home of the well known Blue Angels flight demonstration team.

Hungarian Officials Says Impeachment Witness George Clinton Not Credible. ‘I Was There, He Was Not.’

Published

on

A top Hungarian official recently stated that George Kent is not a credible witness for the impeachment proceedings against President Trump, poking fun at his allegations that Prime Minister Viktor Orban encouraged the president to view Ukraine negatively. Here’s more from Washington Examiner: “This is a great honor for us, to be honest, that we were portrayed as a central European country which can change the position of the president of the United States,” Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto joked in an interview with the Washington Examiner on the sidelines of the NATO Leaders’ Meeting. “It can be taken as an honor. Well, I’m afraid it has distance from reality, to be honest.” Orban emerged as an unlikely player in the Ukraine impeachment controversy in October, when a senior State Department official testified that the Hungarian leader had contributed to Trump’s distaste for Ukraine. George Kent, one of the State Department’s top officials for Europe, told lawmakers that Orban echoed Russian President Vladimir Putin in portraying Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky as in a “thrall” of corruption. “He’s not that credible in this regard,” Szijjarto said of Kent, whom he noted did not attend Orban’s May 13 meeting with Trump. “Simply because he was not there. I was there, he was not there.” “Viktor Orban’s beef with Ukraine is derived in part [from] his vision, in my opinion, of a greater Hungary. This issue of greater Hungary is at the top of Orban’s agenda. And so he has picked this particular issue and, for instance, blocked all meetings in NATO with Ukraine at the ministerial level or above because of this particular issue. So, his animus towards Ukraine is well-known, documented, and has lasted now two years,” Kent continued. Kent then went on to say in his testimony that the Hungarian…
