Democrats: Pro-Iran or Anti-American?

  Nancy Pelosi wants a vote to express her love of America’s enemies: The House will vote on a resolution limiting President Trump’s military actions toward Iran following his decision to launch a drone strike that killed a top Iranian commander, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Sunday. Pelosi told Democratic members in a letter that […]

Trump Unites Republicans

  In Wednesday night’s “historic” impeachment vote — the cable news people keep repeating that word, for some reason — not a single Republican member of the House voted “yea,” whereas there were three “nay” votes in Nancy Pelosi’s Democratic caucus: Minnesota Rep. Collin C. Peterson and New Jersey Rep. Jeff Van Drew voted against […]

The Deep State and UkraineGate

Have I ever mentioned how much I hate keeping up with the day-to-day partisan warfare in D.C.? Many journalists crave such a diet, but I find it tedious, mainly because it’s “pack” reporting, everybody chasing the same story, whereas I prefer to find some little-noticed incident nobody else is covering and turn that into a […]

Left-Wing Democrats: ‘If Hating Israel Is Wrong, We Don’t Want to Be Right’

  That tweet by Colorado leftist Saira Rao perfectly encapsulates the problems of the new Democrat majority in the House. Nancy Pelosi wanted to pass a resolution — obviously aimed at Ilhan Omar — condemning anti-Semitism. But this has failed, because the Left has welcomed Jew-haters into their ranks, and anti-Semitism is particularly prevalent among […]

Schumer and Pelosi Own the Shutdown Even as They Try to Blame Trump

  Democrat leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi have adopted an anti-American position by insisting that nothing be done to secure the southern border against the flood of illegal aliens. Because they represent constituencies that hate Americans and love foreigners, the Democrat leaders believe that they can “win” the confrontation with President Trump over the […]

The Miracle of Saint Nancy

  After she and Chuck Schumer got into a televised Oval Office argument with President Trump about the border wall — remember, she called the wall “immoral” — the new House speaker dissed the president in a private meeting with congressional Democrats: Trump “must have said the word ‘wall’ 30 times,” the California Democrat said, […]
