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.

George Conway Goads Justin Amash with Pre-Praise for Potential POTUS Run

The ‘resistance’ is growing bolder by the minute.

Justin Amash

President Trump is facing adversity like no other President before him, and there’s good reason for this. No, it’s not his alleged shortcomings that are to blame; it’s the fact that he is still very much an outsider in the world of national politics.  Of course, this was a purposeful choice by the American people who have long been under the thumb of career politicians, many of them millionaires, who have taken their role as “public servants” and transformed it into an indoctrination into the ruling class. Which is precisely why we rebelled against the British so many years ago…but that’s a diatribe for another time. Trump has gotten under the skin of the Washington establishment in ways that few others have, and certainly more than any other President in recent memory. Even the husband of one the President’s closest advisers is counting himself among the “resistance”. Attorney George Conway, the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, declared Tuesday that a primary challenge by Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) against President Donald Trump in 2020 would be a “supreme act of patriotism.” “This would be a supreme act of patriotism by Rep. Amash,” Conway, a frequent Trump critic, tweeted in response to an article shared by Reason editor Robby Soave about Libertarians and Never Trump Republicans urging Amash to run for the White House. Amash is the only republican to have called for the impeachment of President Trump, and the idea of both a primary challenge to Trump and a run as the Libertarian candidate in 2020 have been floated as possibilities. Former Massachusetts Governor Bill Weld has also declared his interest in running a primary campaign against the President.

Nevada Goes for The Jugular with ‘Popular Vote’ Bill

There are serious concerns about the move – concerns that conservatives in New York State and California have been warning us about for decades.

Nevada

We all remember that one kid in school who would change the rules to whatever game you were playing whenever they were losing. It seemed to always be the most prevalent in the game of Monopoly, where the “house rules” were more malleable than Play-Doh in August in St. Augustine.  When and where hotels could be built was always a contentious battle for the disadvantaged, regardless of whether or not this disadvantage was self afflicted.  Then there were the unseemly declarations regarding free money, jail time, etc. In other words, some people just can’t stand to lose, and they lash out in unhealthy ways when that fate befalls them. Such seems to be the case these days with the democrats as well, who are still reeling from their electoral evisceration at the hands of Donald Trump back in 2016. Now, after being bested through the electoral college, a great many anti-Trump organizations are pushing to change the rules of the game. Nevada is just the latest to pontificate on just such an adjustment. Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak, a Democrat, will consider signing a new bill that would require the state’s six Electoral College votes to be awarded to the winner of the national popular vote, rather than the winner of the state’s vote. The legislation would only take effect once states representing a majority of the nation’s 538 electoral votes agree to join. Thus far, the participating states or jurisdictions include: California (55), Colorado (9), Connecticut (7), Delaware (3), the District of Columbia (3),  Hawaii (4), Illinois (20), Maryland (10), Massachusetts (11), New Jersey (14), New Mexico (5), New York (29), Rhode Island (4), Vermont (3), Washington (12). These represent a total of 189 electoral votes. Most are solid “blue” states, but Colorado and New Mexico are considered swing states, albeit leaning Democratic.…
