Pelosi’s Medicare Tactics Already Crashed And Burned

On the final Sunday of the election season, the presidential race is up for grabs. The Senate is up for grabs. But one governing body is not up for grabs and that’s the House of Representatives. While it’s possible the Democrats may gain seats, not even their own political spinmeisters are selling the idea that they’ll make up the 25 they’d need to re-take control. According to a report in... More

Obama: Debating is hard. Like governing, apparently.

When I saw this in my Twitter feed my first thought was that Charlie had written on one of those satirical pieces in The Onion that strikes extremely close to home. *New Video* Obama: I’m still trying to get the hang of this debating thing — Charlie Spiering (@charliespiering) October 17, 2012 But no: Obama really did say he’s still trying to g...

Obama-care and the Court: Nancy Pelosi Invokes Intercession of Ted Kennedy

Lost amid the seriousness of last week’s Supreme Court decision upholding Obama-care was yet another bizarre statement by Nancy Pelosi, the Roman Catholic former Speaker of the House who spearheaded the healthcare legislation that has become the law of the land. Pelosi cited an unusual source helping to guide the high court’s action: the spirit of the late Ted Kennedy. “I knew that when he l... More


Pelosi’s latest self-inflicted wound, this time while “defending” Eric Holder

This woman seems not to have any shame. Nancy Pelosi today said that the investigation by Congress into the Department of Justice’s coverup of the Fast and Furious debacle was intended to prevent Attorney General Eric Holder and the DOJ from stopping the suppression of voter turnout in the upcoming election. Really, that’s her charge. It’s a fantastic charge that suffers mortal w... More

Archbishop Pelosi riffs on Catholic theology again

Sorry, did I say Archbishop? I meant to say House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. I mean, it’s an easy mistake, consider that she’s something of an expert on all things Catholic. And so when President Obama announced that he’s now officially a supporter of same-sex marriages, just like he was in 1996, you knew that Pelosi would weigh in on this one. So, did she say that the while ... More


Obama vs. Religious Liberty: Important Neglected Thoughts and Mentions

The War on Religious Liberty, with “Catholics” Leading the Diabolical Attack.

The First Amendment as ratified in 1791: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. Now I have a couple of theories about the way the Obama administration views this. Eit... More

Pelosi’s Dismissive Taunt to Catholics: “They Have This Conscience Thing”

The Washington Post‘s Lifestyle section caught up with Democrat minority leader Nancy Pelosi for an interview published today.
