Pelosi Visits Miami; Cuban-Americans Have Message for Her

With the 2018 midterms just days away, the leadership of the democratic party has been scrambling to shake hands and kiss babies.

To deliver on the “blue wave” they promised, the democrats have been forced to work in the shadow of President Trump’s litany of successes.  The economy is roaring, and joblessness continues to trend downward, compounding the business advantages of the Trump tax plan.  Americans are happy, and the President has an approval rating that tops even liberal darling Barack Obama’s at a similar place in his first term.

In other words, the democrats are attempting to claw and scratch their way uphill, and they’re doing so by saying whatever will get them support in whatever room they happen to be in.

Such is the case with Nancy Pelosi, whose connection to an alleged Castro sympathizer drew the ire of the massive Cuban American population in Miami this week.

A campaign event in Coral Gables that was supposed to star Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Barbara Lee didn’t go as planned on Wednesday after protesters converged on the locale to let “Communista” Lee and company know how they felt about the congresswoman praising Fidel Castro.

The Miami Herald’s Jimena Tavel documented the “uncivil” encounter (h/t Twitchy). “[Rep. Nancy Pelosi] and [Rep. Barbara Lee] were scheduled to campaign for [Donna Shalala] and [Debbie Mucarsel-Powell] here today. About 25 protesters are standing outside, holding signs supporting Republicans and accusing Democrats of being communists,” wrote Tavel.

“The crowd has grown,” she posted later. “They’re striking the door to the building where the event will take place. They’re also screaming ‘commie’ and calling the Democrats ‘witches.'”

One of the protesters, she wrote, is veteran who took part in the Bay of Pigs invasion. He told her he’s insulted that Democrats would invite Rep. Lee, who saidwe should all “stop, pause and mourn” Castro when he died. “I’m angry,” veteran Frank de Varona told Tavel.

Pelosi’s gaffes have gone beyond just this sort of tone-deaf political pageantry as well, with the career politician finding herself stumbling over words, phrase, and names in increasing frequency over the course of the last few months.

AOC Strikes Back At Manchin For Criticizing Her, Says He’s Diminishing ‘Seriousness Of’ My ‘Policy Work’

The Democratic Party is experiencing a lot of in-fighting between the hardcore socialist wing and the more traditionally center-left establishment, a battle that is clearly seen by the tiff between Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Joe Manchin. Manchin recently slammed AOC, stating that she spends most of her time on Twitter rather than being active in Congress. This comment didn’t sit well with the congresswoman who is lashing out in retaliation against Manchin for his comment, accusing him of “diminishing the seriousness” of her “policy work.” “I find it amusing when politicians try to diminish the seriousness of our policy work, movement organizing & grassroots fundraising to ‘she just tweets,’ as though ‘serious’ politics is only done by begging corporate CEOs for money through wax-sealed envelopes delivered by raven,” AOC posted on Twitter. https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1333958991613923331 via Daily Wire: Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet came in response to a comment Manchin made in response to her trolling him on social media. “I guess she put the dagger stare on me,” Manchin told The New York Times. “I don’t know the young lady — I really don’t. I never met her. I’m understanding she’s not that active with her bills or in committee. She’s more active on Twitter than anything else.” The report noted that Manchin’s words constituted “a sharp insult” because in the U.S. Senate “legislative prowess is prized.” According to Congress.gov, Ocasio-Cortez has not introduced a single bill as the primary sponsor that has become law. In fact, the furthest any of her bills have made it is to Floor Consideration and that was just one bill. She has cosponsored 11 bills that have become law. Manchin, a centrist Democrat, also conducted an interview with Fox News in which he ripped AOC and her buddies. “They’ll have to answer to the public,” Manchin told…

Rudy Giuliani

The NY Times has managed to get a lot of things wrong over the years that President Trump has been in office. How many times does this publication need to have its credibility shot all to pieces before folks stop reading it? President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani is currently denying a report published by the New York Times that suggests he once discussed a preemptive pardon as recently as last week. “#FakeNews NYT lies again,” he posted on Twitter. via Newsmax: “Never had the discussion they falsely attribute to an anonymous source,” Giuliani said. “Hard to keep up with all their lies.” Giuliani, who has not been charged with any crime, has drawn scrutiny for his dealings in Ukraine on behalf of President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani has come out and denied allegations made in a recent New York Times report that he discussed a pardon with the commander-in-chief. Giuliani’s lawyer, Robert Costello, told the Times that Giuliani is not concerned about the investigation, “because he didn’t do anything wrong, and that’s been our position from Day 1.” Mainstream media news outlets have been biased against the president for a long, long time. Since he first announced his bid for the White House. They recognize his power and influence over regular Americans. His ability to relate to the common man and to actually do what he says he’s going to do frightens liberals. Trump stands in direct opposition to their goal of transforming our country into a socialist nightmare. Is it any wonder they’d start targeting those who have helped him in his crusade to put America first?
