Nancy Pelosi got asked one question that sent her running for her life

Nancy Pelosi is fighting for political survival.

The Speaker of the House is involved in a feud that could end her career.

And then Nancy Pelosi got asked one question that sent her running for her life.

Nancy Pelosi faced so-called “reporters” at her weekly press conference.

Even the Democrat activists in the press had to ask her about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez calling her a racist.

Pelosi panicked and wouldn’t answer the question or take any more questions on the subject.

Politico reports:

“I said what I’m going to say in the caucus. That’s where this is appropriate,” Pelosi said at her weekly news conference Thursday, shutting down additional follow-up attempts by a reporter.

Pelosi suggested that Ocasio-Cortez and the other freshman progressive women in her so-called “squad” may be upset that the speaker chided members — and their staff — in a private caucus meeting Wednesday.

“They took offense because I addressed, at the request of my members, an offensive tweet that came out of one of the member’s offices that referenced our Blue Dogs and our New Dems essentially as segregationists,” Pelosi said, referencing a now-deleted tweet by Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff.

“How they’re interpreting and carrying it to another place is up to them,” Pelosi added. “But I’m not going to be discussing it any further.”

This is the biggest threat to Pelosi’s power in her career.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez represents the future of the Democrat Party.

If Democrats have a bad 2020 election then the knives will be out for Pelosi.

And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will be leading the charge to force Pelosi out of leadership.

      If AOC is the new face of the Democratic party then that will be the end of them. From a barstool fluffer to power monger? Come on.

  2. Edward Oliver says:

    The problem actions taken by Nancy Pelosi have some damaging issues that she thinks may repair the poor judgement of the Democrats that they have lied about Pesident Donald Trump and he has done some fantastic programs that have benefited the entire USA and all American Citizens and has much more to give us to rebuild our nation and our Military Forces to again be the greatest military Force in the entire World of which we are now and can be beter with the proper LEADERSHIP inWashington, DC . Maybe they need a House Cleaning!!!!

  3. Edward Oliver says:

    I for one of many feel this is what our Congress needs to regain their respect as Congress Represenatives, of honor and the will to do what is necessary to regain the RESPECT of the American Voters! Time has arrived to get the Democrats ideology straight and on target to make our Congress Strong and respectable Once Again for they seem to have truly done severe damage to their positions and it ned to be cleaned up once and forall!

  4. Loren Clobes says:

    AOC represents “THE FUTURE OF THE DEMOCRATS PARTY ” according to Pelosi???

    If that is the case, voters must do everything in their power to “Destroy the DemoRAT TIC party, so that IDIOTS like AOC (or is it DUMB ASS) are incapable of “Destroying AMERICA.

    Pelosi/Schumer etc (0ld ‘Establishment’ Dems) \seem
    to be ‘weakening’ under pressure from the Big 4 Dangerous
    ‘foreign’ women in Congress.
    Is ‘that what Pelosi etc Want? … i’m not sure.

  6. J. Sullivan says:

    Certainly, the American citizens deserve to hear your response to the reporters question. At the very least, let the American citizens hear you answer some questions. If this situation had happened in the Rep. Party, the Dems would be screaming for an investigation into the accusation of racism.

  7. Marcy says:

    Well! it seems that Ocasio is as much a racest as Polosi. She has no room to talk about anyone. She is feeding the people a bunch of poison and te people that believe her don’t no more see it than you can fly.. Her green new deal stinks, along with all the ideas she is putting out their.. She does not even make sense.. I know one thing, she has no common sense at all ,” like the demecratic party.” They did away with common sense a long time ago.. Thay have totally lost it..

      right on she is a swamp rat wants more money for herself steals from (middle class) working people. too dumb to realize she is dumb

    “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez represents the future of the Democrat Party.”
    Highly unlikely. Cortez is an idiot – way out of touch with reality, let alone having any vague notion of adult conversation and educated debate or governance. Otherwise, a ‘dogie’ – a runaway, a stray. Erratic and soon to be rounded up.

  9. T. Bell says:

    I really hope the GD bitch tripped and broke her Fing neck while running for her life !

  10. Pat says:

    There is no guarantee that AOC will win her next election. She’s already made a LOT of enemies in and out of Congress. Most people are fed up with the antics of all for juniors, especially AOC and Omar.

    • old man coyote says:

      That rumbling upset in Cal last week was not an earthquake. That was the effect of the DNC falling apart. Not a one of them worth the powder to blow them away.

    • Roger Mann says:

      Considering she was responsible for Amazon not building in New York I would say her chances of being reelected are about a hundred million to zero!

      • jw says:

        Don’t bet on it , if NYorkers are dumb enough to vote the likes of their ignorant Gov. and mayorof the NYC they are dumb enough to re-elect her !

        • SandyJ says:

          My thoughts exactly! How can so many stay alive if they’re that dumb?

        • Kep says:

          It isn’t ALL NYers, just in the highly populated urban areas. Most of NYS is rural and conservative but the Democratic Party, aka the New Amerikan Communist Party, will do ANYTHING to win. If not for pets, the deceased and illegal invaders voting for them, they would never win an election.

    • NickP says:

    • Jose Luis says:

Pray 🙏 and truly believe that the people of the United States 🇺🇸 are not so brainwashed as the ignorant violent democraps! MAGA. 2020! VOTE for true conservatives to have a majority in both houses!

    • gayle clay says:

      The Democratic party has already been destroyed. There is no getting it back. Complete nuts sit in congress and they haven’t done anything on behalf of the American people since the 2016 election. Excuse me but they have done one thing ..cost us billions of dollars. Adding up their paychecks, the cost of the border crisis which they said was not there, the price of Mueller’s pretend investigation with zero results, etc. Yes they want the citizens broke and have tried relentlessly.

  13. Vasu Murti says:

    Instead of demonizing Democrats, if pro-lifers really want to end abortion, it’s going to have to be bipartisan. I told Jim Frey of Berkeley Pro-Life over a decade ago that we (Democrats) never see pro-lifers venture beyond their own base. Rather than reach across the aisle to Democrats, feminists, liberals, etc., and try to bring them on board with protecting unborn children, they just play to the same old Ronald Reagan / Oliver North crowd.

    If pro-lifers really want to end abortion, opposition to abortion must come from across the political spectrum. Pro-lifers are going to have to venture beyond their own base and convince Democrats, feminists, liberals etc. to distinguish abortion from arguably victimless crimes like marijuana; to argue on secular grounds that the unborn are persons (secular arguments are religion-neutral, and thus applicable to everyone, including atheists and agnostics) and convince Democrats, feminists, liberals, etc. to see the killing of the unborn on par with domestic violence, hate crimes against LGBTs, etc.; and make the case to Americans that it’s possible to protect prenatal life without taking to draconian measures violating a new mother’s privacy and civil liberties in this regard.

    Robert Casey, the former Democratic governor of Pennsylvania, said he believed a pro-life liberal Democrat would easily be elected president: conservatives would vote for a pro-lifer, and liberals would vote for a Democrat articulating opposition to abortion as a secular and nonsectarian civil rights issue. In 1994, even archconservative Pat Buchanan had kind words for Robert Casey! If pro-life Democrats had greater visibility in past decades, perhaps Carol Crossed would have been the first female speaker of the House.

    After the 2016 election losses, Nancy Pelosi admits that the Democratic Party’s support of abortion has not been a winning issue. Pelosi spoke to the Washington Post about whether her party should support pro-life candidates or require that candidates support easy access to taxpayer-funded abortions through all nine months of pregnancy.

    Struggling after heavy election losses in 2016, many in the Democratic Party are debating whether to support pro-life candidates, especially in rural areas where voters tend to be pro-life. Some, like Pelosi, appear to be recognizing that the party’s support of abortion-on-demand-up-to-birth is losing them voters.

    Unfortunately, rather than seeing the abortion issue as a real loser for Democrats, especially in red states (crucial with winning the Electoral College!), Pelosi blamed Hillary Clinton’s loss on pro-life voters themselves! Clinton supported the unpopular platform of forcing taxpayers to directly fund abortions, and she promised to nominate Supreme Court justices who would uphold Roe v. Wade and abortion on demand up until birth, if elected.

    Pelosi told the Washington Post : “You know what? That’s why Donald Trump is president of the United States—the evangelicals and the Catholics, anti-marriage equality, anti-choice. That’s how he got to be president. Everything was trumped, literally and figuratively by that.”

    Pelosi, who supports abortion but describes herself as a Catholic, said many in her Catholic family are pro-life. She also mentioned U.S. Sen. Bob Casey from Pennsylvania, a Democrat with a mixed record on abortion.

    “You think I’m kicking them out of the Democratic Party?” Pelosi said.

    Jay Ware, a black Democrat in Illinois, said on the Democrats For Life email list as early as 2004 that it should be automatic: just as the Republican Party supports pro-choice candidates like Rudy Giuliani and Arnold Schwarzenegger in blue states like New York and California where pro-lifers can’t win and even has Republican president George W. Bush campaign for them, Jay Ware said the Democratic Party should similarly support pro-life Democrats in red states where pro-choicers can’t win, and have Democratic presidents campaign for pro-life Democrats, etc.

    “The moral test of government is how it treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the aged; and those who are in the shadows of life, the sick, the needy and the handicapped.”

    –Hubert H. Humphrey

    Fifty-nine percent of Democrats favored a ban on partial-birth abortion. (Gallup Poll, November 1, 2000)

    Eighty-nine percent of Americans favored informed consent for women seeking abortions. (Gallup Poll, 2002)

    Sixty-seven percent of Democrats would outlaw some or all abortions. (Gallup Poll, May 5-7, 2003)

    Forty-three percent of Democrats agreed with the statement that abortion”destroys a human life and is manslaughter.” (Zogby Poll, December 2004)

    Seventy percent of high school senior females say they would not consider abortion if they became pregnant while in high school. (Hamilton College/Zogby Poll, January 2008)

    Seventy-seven percent of Americans believe abortion should have stricter limitations. (CBS News Poll, January 2008)

    Twenty-nine percent of Democratic Convention delegates disagreed with the statement, “Abortion should be generally available to those who want it rather than under stricter limits or not permitted.” However, 52 percent of Democratic voters as a whole disagreed. This large discrepancy between party leadership and membership indicates a serious problem that Democrats For Life of America wants to rectify.

    During the 2008 campaign, Reverend Jim Wallis (of Sojourners) advised Barack Obama to support a plank in the Democratic Party Platform that would aim to reduce abortions by focusing on supporting low income women and making adoption easier. (This is the 95-10 Initiative, advanced by pro-life Democrats in Congress.) Reverend Tony Campolo served on the Platform Committee and has issued a strong statement in support of a pro-life position.

    A “conscience clause” which appeared in the 2000 Democratic Platform (but not in 2004) acknowledges that there are pro-life people in our Party and we respect their views. It reads as follows:

    “We respect the conscience of each American and recognize that members of our Party have deeply held and sometimes differing positions on issues of personal conscience, like abortion and the death penalty. We recognize the diversity of views as a source of strength and we welcome into our ranks all Americans who may hold differing positions on these and other issues.”

    Kristen Day of Democrats For Life said in 2014, “Roughly a third of the Democratic Party is pro-life. And while many do not call themselves liberal, they share the values which seem to identify with liberalism, particularly a commitment to helping the vulnerable and providing a social safety net.”

    The Democratic Party platform should support: Animal Rights, Defending the Affordable Care Act, Ending Citizens United, Ending Marijuana Prohibition, Giving Greater Visibility to Pro-Life Democrats, Gun Control, Net Neutrality, Raising the Minimum Wage to $15 an Hour, Responding to the Scientific Consensus on Global Warming, and a Sustainable Energy Policy.

      Abortion is taking a baby and permanently separated from the parents. Did you ask the baby if he wanted to die? Is a fetus a tumor? Why don’t men and women tie their tubes and there would be no murders? Getting pregnant is a choice MOST of the time!!!! MAGA 2020 and vote a majority in both Houses with Congressmen who will help. President Trump complete his great and very wise plan!!

  16. Jerzy ben Kosiba says:

    Nasty Nancy, the “Crypt Keeper” of Congress, is racist against White people and supporters of the United States Constitution. The Leftists, cultural Marxists in California would like to rid the state of all Conservatives and replace them with illegal aliens. Guvnor Grusom has said as much. Progressive is only a code word for Communism. The CPA call the Progressives incremental Communists, because both the Progressives and Communists are striving for common goals. I’m tired of Nan singling out the so-called women of color, like that indicates any race. I’ve known many Italians with darker skin complexion. Nan surely doesn’t include those ladies in her women of color club. Skin color is not an indication of racial identity, because many Caucasian people have various shades of skin from light brown to darker tones. Many of the people from the Mediterranean, Arab nations, Balkans, Russia and Central Asia, and North Africa are Caucasian peoples. You don’t have to have blond hair and blue eyes to be Caucasian.

  17. Thomas Cordell says:

    Ought to have a history test for every member of congress. If they do not get at least a 95% correct answers, then they must resign immediately. And for those seeking the job to take it and must pass or not run for office.

      • MSPS says:

        Interesting that most people who criticize Trump bring up his wealth. It’s as if they are just heartsick that they missed out on the gravy train as you call it. Jealous much?
        And the fact that you ascribe that same jealousy to Trump fans seems a little bit like deflection maybe? Your jealousy, envy and bias is every bit as offensive for a human being as the so-called short comings you insult both Trump and each of his constituents with. Bet you’re one of “those” guests that make each holiday so joyful and filled with good cheer when you show up.

      • Only people of class get to ride on ,TRUMP’S TRAIN> I am on it. You machine aren’t on it. Trump does not allow rusty objects, either.
