Nancy Pelosi says the federal cupboard is bare, there are no more spending cuts to make
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi swung by CNN’s State of the Nation to assure America that austerity has run its course, the budget has been cut to the bone, and there isn’t a penny left to pinch from Uncle Sam’s moth-filled wallet. ”The cupboard is bare. There’s no more cuts to make,” Pelosi gibbered. ”It’s really important that people understand that. We all want to reduce | Read More »
Why has Bob Filner not been arrested? #waronwomen
Is there not enough evidence by now for a grand jury? Because there are several members of the National Women’s Veterans Association of America (NWVAA) that would no doubt like an answer to those two questions. Three weeks ago, as women began to step forward to reveal instances of sexual harassment, the veterans at the NWVAA began to compare notes. Tara Jones, the president of | Read More »
Nancy Pelosi must resign from the House over Bob Filner coverup.
I usually try not to put things that starkly, particularly since a Republican saying that a Democrat needs to resign is going to be (justifiably) taken with a grain of salt, but… this is ridiculous. “I blew the whistle on [Bob Filner's sexual harassment] two years ago to the Democratic Party leadership,” former Assemblywoman Lori Saldaña said. Saldaña said that in summer 2011 six prominent | Read More »
@NancyPelosi is being FAR too modest about her protection of FISA.
I admit, Nancy Pelosi talks a good game about how she hates FISA on general principles: When contacted, a Pelosi aide did not dispute the minority leader’s assertive role in influencing Democrats, but passed along a letter Pelosi sent to the president today raising skepticism about the NSA’s surveillance powers. “Dear Mr. President,” reads the letter. “Although the amendment was defeated 205-217, it is clear | Read More »
Nancy Pelosi’s (@nancypelosi) former colleague Bob Filner.
Apparently Nancy Pelosi doesn’t like it when people point out that fellow CPC founder Bob Filner is a former colleague: House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) may have worked alongside former Rep. Bob Filner (D-Calif.) for 10 years in Congress, but now that he’s facing a string of sexual harassment allegations, she isn’t exactly rising to his defense. During a Thursday roundtable with reporters, Pelosi | Read More »
Organized Labor Gets Made To Obamacare
The Presidential Administration of Barack H. Obama always looks out for the little guy. They strike him center of mass. They then back up the yuppified SUV and run him over several more times. You gotta’ get the job done right to succeed in DC these days.
Now that was just plain cynical. It was also mean. So mean that three of sleaziest leaders of organized

thuggerylabor agree with my assessment. At least they agree with it as applied to the American Affordable Care Act of 2009. Having finally figured out what the right has been telling them for years, these wise men wrote leading minions of Emperor Barack I a missive to plead for a writ of indulgence with respect to the terrible, unworkable, destructive legislation that we all affectionately refer to as Obamacare.
Human assets and liabilities
Grover Norquist of Americans for Tax Reform does not think much of the Heritage Foundation’s recent projection of the total cost of amnesty. Heritage figured a taxpayer cost of about $6 trillion over the next 50 years. Norquist takes many issues with this figure, including some that aren’t really problems with the report itself – for example, he criticizes the way other people have presented its conclusions | Read More »
Wage Compression & Job Losses: The Crushing Impact Of A 24% Minimum Wage Hike
To be clear, Obama and the Democrats know precisely what they are doing. It’s not about doing what makes good common sense. Rather, Obama and the Democrats’ push to raise the minimum wage is all about politics.

Nancy Pelosi thinks a pay cut is below her ‘dignity.’
And this is why Nancy Pelosi will STAY House Minority Leader. It’s because of incredibly tin-eared statements like this. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday that she opposes a cut in congressional pay because it would diminish the dignity of lawmakers’ jobs. “I don’t think we should do it; I think we should respect the work we do,” Pelosi told reporters in the | Read More »
Nancy Pelosi comes out strongly for… limiting federal court jurisdiction over the states?
No, really: when asked a question about the debt ceiling/so-called “fiscal cliff” today Nancy Pelosi decided to respond by talking about how she was on the side of the Eleventh Amendment. For those of you who need reminding, that’s the one that limits the ability of federal courts to permit private citizens in one state from suing other states as a whole (they can still | Read More »
Who needs a muted, irrelevant President?
As conservatives, we know why we don’t want President Barack Obama in the White House. He is leading this country in the wrong direction. But his completely empty convention speech, when combined two moments described in Bob Woodward’s new book, gave us another prong of attack that is potentially much more devastating. He simply is irrelevant now. Nancy Pelosi put him on mute and Speaker John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid kicked Obama out of a meeting he called in the White House.
So here’s the argument. President Obama may be bad. But he’s worse than bad. He’s irrelevant. It is time to elect someone with a vision and a capacity to actually solve — or at least contribute to solutions — to today’s problems. Obama’s convention speech, allergic to any specifics, and nothing more than a recitation of progressive goals and values rather than specific policies to get people there, shows that he will continue to be the irrelevant man in the room if re-elected. Who needs a man who brings nothing to the table other than speechifying, no matter how inspiring it may be to some?

Proposed ‘Pelosi Provision’ of the STOCK Act unveiled yesterday.
The STOCK Act – which is short for the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge Act; honestly, I wish that they’d stop coming up with cute names for these. This particular one is not really obnoxious, but some of them have really reached for the acronym – started to get really pushed through last year, once it came out that Members of Congress, including then-Speaker of | Read More »
Did a Former Nancy Pelosi Aide Screw Up the Komen Decision? Ogilvy Public Relations Should Explain.
Judd Legum at Think Progress did what appears to be a pre-emptive strike against former Bush White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer claiming that Fleisher was “secretly involved” in the Susan G. Komen Foundations‘ strategy on planned parenthood. In fact, according to people I’ve spoken to who are aware of the decision making processes at Komen, Fleischer had nothing to do with Komen’s strategy or | Read More »
#SOTU Recap: SSDD (Or, Something Sounded Familiar)
Listening to Barack Obama’s State of the Union Speech last night was like listening to just about every one of his SOTU speeches… Actually, with the exception of Obama’s promise to sign a law making Congressional insider trading illegal [Martha Stewart may have some resort recommendations for Nancy Pelosi], listening to Obama’s SOTU speech really was listening to his other speeches, as this RNC video | Read More »
Pelosi Backpedals on #Occupy Movement
Democrat Nancy Pelosi’s penchant for hypocritical hyperbole is once again manifesting itself. Her latest example is regarding the #Occupy movement. Just a few short months ago, before the #Occupy movement exposed itself as a bunch of entitlement-driven neo-Communist criminals, Pelosi (and other Democrats) wholly embraced the squatters’ rag-tag movement. This was Pelosi then: Despite the fact that unions are now funding, coordinating, aiding and abetting | Read More »
