By Calvin Freiburger WASHINGTON, D.C., – House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi may be an ardent proponent of legal abortion, but she recognized that emphasizing the issue would be hazardous for Democrats trying to take over the House of Representatives, according to a recent report in the New York Times. Republicans kept the Senate while losing …Continue reading "Pelosi pushed Dems to downplay abortion in midterm election strategy: New York Times"
By Dave Andrusko Yesterday three congressional leadership posts were easily decided. As NRL News Today noted on Wednesday, pro-life Senator Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) will remain Senate Majority Leader and Pro-life Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) will become the new House Minority Leaders. Pro-abortion Senator Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) will serve as Senate Minority Leader. Yesterday we …Continue reading "Pro-life leadership set in House and Senate as Pelosi scrambles to be next Speaker"
By Dave Andrusko Amazing how things so often do come in threes. First, there’s the story published in today’s POLITICO under the headline “Pelosi cranks up push to win over freshmen: The California Democrat is using every trick in her book to take back the Speakership.” As the headline suggests, there is a Pelosi “charm …Continue reading "A trifecta on pro-abortion Nancy Pelosi"
By Nicholas Fondacaro In the wake of the Democrats’ humiliating defeat in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District Tuesday night, members of the party were in a rush to cast blame on someone. And for many Democrats that blame fell on House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. Even with the loud calls for new leadership, CBS News decided …Continue reading "CBS Ignores Dems Blaming Pelosi for Georgia Defeat, ABC Brushes Over"
By Dave Andrusko It is unfair on many grounds to expect pro-abortion House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca.) to offer a cogent, or even coherent, explanation of her position on abortion. She’s been at this a long time, so when the topic comes up she reflexively touts her Catholicism and the fact that she had …Continue reading "Pelosi and the pretence that there is room for pro-lifers in the Democratic Party"
By Dave Andrusko A tip of the hat to PJ Media for airing portions of a Town Hall meeting held by pro-abortion House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca.) The video picks up with a young woman identified as Brianna Kristyn Roberts politely, gently, kindly making the following statement, followed by a question. “I am part …Continue reading "Adopted woman told by Pelosi she wants all women to be able to “chose”…to abort"
By Dave Andrusko Under the category of “What is the definition of insanity–doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different results”–House Democrats this morning gave militant pro-abortionist Nancy Pelosi (Ca.) another term as House Minority Leader. Pelosi needed a two-thirds vote to beat back the challenge of pro-abortion Tim Ryan (Ohio). …Continue reading "Pro-abortion Nancy Pelosi remains House Minority Leader"
By Dave Andrusko Day Three of the Democratic National Convention will be remembered for many signal events, including the speeches of pro-abortion President Obama, pro-abortion Vice President Biden and pro-abortion Hillary Clinton’s Vice President, pro-abortion Virginia Senator Tim Kaine. But for those who were paying attention, there were the astonishingly tin-eared (even for her) comments …Continue reading "Day Three of the Democrats’ National convention: more boilerplate and the “three G’s”"
By Dave Andrusko Earlier today I was set to write about pro-abortion House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s comments that appeared in Roll Call this morning, but I figured I’d wait, sure that the folks at places like Planned Parenthood or NARAL would get their noses bent out of joint. Sure enough… NARAL put out a …Continue reading "NARAL bashes Pelosi, still more evidence Abortion Industry is on edge"
By Dave Andrusko The headline is that Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives this morning re-elected pro-abortion Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca.) as minority leader. She was elected without opposition, by voice vote. It’s not quite that simple, however. Previously Pelosi explained to the Washington Post why she should retain her leadership position. “I’m the …Continue reading "Democrats retain pro-abortion Nancy Pelosi as House Minority Leader"
By Dave Andrusko Editor’s note. While my family and I are on vacation, we are running some of our favorite NRL News Today stories from the last four months, entries from our “Roe at 40″ series, and an occasional update. This is the last post for today, and it is last for a reason. It …Continue reading "Giving Pelosi a Mulligan–Again"
By Dave Andrusko House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi is to accuracy and clarity what Planned Parenthood is to the practice of good medicine: zero correlation. Whenever Pelosi is pressed on a tough issue–never more so than on abortion—she blends evasion with misdirection and then unjustly [mis]uses her Catholic faith as a shield when anyone wants …Continue reading "Pelosi’s bizarre defense of late abortion"
