    Quote of the Day – Nancy Pelosi Edition Part 6 

    I’ve responded to you to the extent that I’m going to respond to you. Because I want to tell you something. As the mother of five children, my oldest child was 6 years old the day I brought my 5th child home from the hospital, as a practicing and respectful Catholic, this is sacred ground to me when we talk about this. I don’t think it should have anything to do with politics. And that’s where you’re taking it and I’m not going there.

    Nancy Pelosi when asked what the difference between Gosnell killing a child born alive during a botched abortion and an actual abortion after 24 weeks.

    I would like to know what type of Parish she goes to that having abortions is being a practicing and respectful Catholic.  The Catholic Church is quite clear on this.  It is life from the moment of conception to natural death, no equivocations whatsoever.

      “as a practicing and respectful Catholic” She may think this in her mind but Pelosi is not a practicing and respectful Catholic. She is not a Catholic in good standing. She’s pretty much excommunicated herself from the Church because of her positions on abortion and same-sex marriage. She may still be receiving Communion cause Cardinals/bishops are too wimpy and have failed to defend the Faith but her receiving the Eucharist is a Big scandal.

      “I feel the greatest destroyer of peace today is ‘Abortion’, because it is a war against the child… A direct killing of the innocent child, ‘Murder’ by the mother herself… And if we can accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love… And we remind ourselves that love means to be willing to give until it hurts…”
      ― Mother Teresa

      “How can there be too many children? That is like saying there are too many flowers.”
      ― Mother Teresa

      “If a mother can kill her own child – what is left for me to kill you and you to kill me – there is nothing between.”
      ― Mother Teresa

      “When Mother Teresa received the Nobel Prize, she was asked, “What can we do to promote world peace?” She answered “Go home and love your family.”
      ― Mother Teresa

    “I do my religion on Sundays, in church, and I try to go other days of the week; I don’t do it at this press conference,

    Nancy Pelosi when asked about the church teaching that birth control is amoral.

    I think she missed that sermon.

    Quote of the Day – Nancy Pelosi Edition Part 5 

    “Why would we have any regrets?”

    Nancy Pelosi on being asked on the DNC using the “attacks” on Reverend Wright to raise cash.

    So let me get this straight, if I talk about Reverend Wright I am a racist.  But if they she sends out an email about him to raise money it is perfectly fine.

    I completely disagree that Reverend Wright should not be brought up.  The reason being four years ago people were willing to give the president the benefit of the doubt when it came to Marxism.  It was much easier to write Wright off as the gop being raaaaacist.  This year, after seeing three years of policies that can easily be described as Marxist based, the public may be far more willing to actually connect the dots this time around.  Not only should Wright be an issue, it should be hammered home.  Mr. Wright is a Marxist.  President Obama sat in his church for 20 years.  He needs to answer the question of why.  We already know the answer, he used Wright to further his own ambitions, but many still don’t see that.  Forcing President Obama to answer that question would go a long way to getting him out of the White House.

    Quote of the Day – Nancy Pelosi Edition Part 3 

    “I think that we must – we must – pass the unemployment insurance.  I do not think it should be paid for because it is again, it is something that people, that is paid into and now we should, for many reasons, not pay for it.”

    Nancy Pelosi.

     

    Yeah, we will just call the Chinese and ask for more money.  There are no words.

      It`s normally quite difficult to follow the Wicked Witch of the West`s logic, but this time, I`m completely lost. Is she implying that since employees have paid into the system, the money is already there “and unspent by the spendaholic congress”, therefore, it`s just a matter of “writing the checks” ?

      • just a conservative girl 11:47 PM on 12/08/2011 Permalink | Reply

        No, I don’t think so. I think she is admitting that there is a cost to it, but it doesn’t matter because the unemployed paid a portion of that cost. But either way, she believes that this is stimulus. She has said that many times in the past. Which I suppose in a way it is, because this money is usually spent right away on food, rent, gas or whatever. But the fact remains if that were going to create jobs we wouldn’t have high unemployment now as we have paying this for years now. I know someone that collected for almost the full 99 weeks. And lo and behold found a job the week before it ran out.

    Quote of the Day – Nancy Pelosi Edition Part 2 

    “I don’t know if I agree with your characterization of what the HHS put forth, but as a mother of five children in six years, as a devout Catholic, I have great respect for our bishops when they are my pastor. As lobbyists in Washington D.C., we have some areas of disagreement.”

    Nancy Pelosi on the mandate that all insurance policies carry coverage for FDA approved contraceptives, including the morning after pill which the Catholic Church views as an abortion.

    The exception policy for this is written so narrowly that very few Catholic entities across the country will qualify.

    To qualify as a “religious employer” that will get an exemption an organization must meet all of four criteria: their purpose must be the “inculcation of religious values,” they must “primarily employ persons who share the same religious tenets,” they must “primarily serve persons who share its religious tenets,” and they must be organized under the specific section of the Internal Revenue Code used by churches per se.

    Why this woman has not been excommunicated from the Catholic Church is just beyond my comprehension.  Bishops talking about life issues is lobbying?  Unreal.

      Actually, why the woman hasn’t been straightjacketed and put in an institution is beyond me.

    Bye Bye Speaker Pelosi, Hello the People’s House 

    Happy new House New Year.

    The imperial Pelosi era is over. No more boozing cross-country plane-loads at our expense. No more strutting and bashing We the People with her gavel. No more imbecilic arrogance of we have to pass the bill so you can find out what’s in it.

    She’s still telling whoppers as she steps down.

    Welcome Speaker Boehner.

    Power Play has long observed he and his staff to be among the least cynical, most earnest of any on the Hill. It may seem contrived or cheesy to critics, but these folks actually believe in what their talking about.

    Whatever the barriers Pelosi broke, John Boehner will certainly be the first brother of 11, German-Catholic, tavern keeper’s son from blue-collar Cincinnati to wield the gavel. Those roots are reflected in the people he has gathered around him and in their priorities.

    Welcome, at long last. This is the people’s house.

    Nancy Pelosi: Holier Than Thou 

    Nancy Pelosi’s abuse of religious ideals is so brazen as to be embarrassing.  When she voted against partial-birth abortion she received a tongue lashing from Pope Benedict XVI.

    The Holy See’s press office released this statement saying, “His Holiness took the opportunity to speak of the requirements of the natural moral law and the Church’s consistent teaching on the dignity of human life from conception to natural death which enjoin all Catholics, and especially legislators, jurists and those responsible for the common good of society, to work in co-operation with all men and women of good will in creating a just system of laws capable of protecting human life at all stages of its development.”

    On May 6, 2010 at a Catholic Community Conference on Capitol Hill, Pelosi said she believes she must pursue public policies “in keeping with the values” of Jesus Christ, “The Word made Flesh” and proceeded to argue its merits.

    At the conference, “Knuckles” Pelosi said she is often asked what her favorite word is.  She replied, “The Word”.

    “It says it all for us…And that Word is, we have to give voice to what that means in terms of public policy that would be in keeping with the values of the Word. The Word. Isn’t it a beautiful word when you think of it? It just covers everything. The Word.”

    Pelosi is selectively religious. She pontificates when it suits her agenda while receiving little criticism from the secular media.  Let a Republican try that.  They’d go down in flames.

    Family Feud 

    Nancy “Knuckles” Pelosi is PO’d at White House Lap Dog “The Gibnotist”.  How delicious!

    CQ Politics and Fox News are reporting that Pelosi, irked since Sunday by Gibbs’ statement on “Meet the Press”, that Democrats could lose the majority won in 2006 after twelve years out of power.

    Pelosi reportedly said Gibbs’ comments were particularly damaging because they give ammunition to Republicans trying to make the case that Democrats are going to lose in November. “Someone from the White House says it, and [House Minority Whip Eric] Cantor says it, so now you have both sides saying something,” the source said. “So she was very upset.”

    Republicans need thirty-nine seats to win back the majority, a threshold non-partisan analysts say is within reach. Democratic National Committee Chairman Tim Kaine said Tuesday Republicans could win twenty-eight seats, a much higher figure than he’s previously acknowledged.

    A Democratic consultant, who works closely with the DCCC, said officials within the party’s fundraising ranks were worried Gibbs’ comments could dampen enthusiasm and reduce contributions from Washington’s K Street lobbyists, who might steer more money to the GOP, and grassroots activists.

    The strategist described rank-and-file House Democrats as “livid.” “They feel thrown under the bus,” the strategist said.

    The feud occurred a day before Obama was due to plot legislative strategy with House Democratic leaders at the White House.

    Giving Lame Ducks A Bad Name 

    I’ll grant that “lame duck” sessions are never desirable. Defeated lame duck lawmakers, knowing they will not have jobs in the new Congress, either tend to “just go through the motions” while debating and voting on remaining important legislation or, in worse cases, attempt to hinder or even damage the lawmaking process.

    With political tempers already running hot, the temptation for lame duck members of the 111th Congress to vent their frustrations by working to turn bad bills into worse laws has become even more ominous.

    John Fund, writing for the Wall Street Journal opines that, “Democratic House members are so worried about the fall elections they’re leaving Washington on July 30, a full week earlier than normal—and they won’t return until mid-September. Members gulped when National Journal’s Charlie Cook, the Beltway’s leading political handicapper, predicted last month ‘the House is gone,’ meaning a GOP takeover. He thinks Democrats will hold the Senate, but with a significantly reduced majority.”

    The rush to recess gives Democrats little time to pass any major laws. That’s why there have been signs in recent weeks that party leaders are planning an ambitious, lame-duck session to muscle through bills in December they don’t want to defend before November. Retiring or defeated members of Congress would then be able to vote for sweeping legislation without any fear of voter retaliation.

    Conservative groups such as FreedomWorks are alarmed at the potential damage, and they are demanding that everyone in Congress pledge not to take up substantive legislation in a post-election session. “Members of Congress are supposed to represent their constituents, not override them like sore losers in a lame-duck session,” Rep. Tom Price, head of the Republican Study Committee, told me.

    It’s been almost 30 years since anything remotely contentious was handled in a lame-duck session, but that doesn’t faze Democrats who have jammed through ObamaCare and are determined to bring the financial system under greater federal control.

    Mike Allen of Politico.com reports one reason President Obama failed to mention climate change legislation during his recent, Oval Office speech on the Gulf oil spill was that he wants to pass a modest energy bill this summer, then add carbon taxes or regulations in a conference committee with the House, most likely during a lame-duck session. The result would be a climate bill vastly more ambitious and costly for American consumers and taxpayers, than moderate “Blue Dogs” in the House would support on the campaign trail. “We have a lot of wiggle room in conference,” a House Democratic aide told the trade publication Environment & Energy Daily last month.

    Many Democrats insist there will be no dramatic lame-duck agenda. But a few months ago they also insisted the extraordinary maneuvers used to pass health care wouldn’t be used. Desperate times may be seen as calling for desperate measures, and this November the election results may well make Democrats desperate.

    This And No Other Is The Root From Which A Tyrant Springs 

    I have remained silent this week about the political cowardice of the 111th Congress.  My disgust moved me away from the subject of politics.  Like all the other bloggers who have pounded on their keyboards hour after hour and day after day in frustration over how the Demonrats are taking a sledge hammer to the pillars of our democracy, I am outraged.

    So reviled is the public over the “Cornhusker Kickback”, the “Louisiana Purchase”, “Gator Aid” and the tax on high-cost “Cadillac” insurance plans that they came in droves that have yet to be tallied to Washington to have their voices heard as the cowards of the House Rules Committee met in the Capitol Building.

    Those attending the Code Red Rally did, in fact, have their voices heard.  At 3:15PM, Steny Hoyer announced that the House is abandoning the “deem and pass” strategy proposed by Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-NY).  They will instead move toward an up-or-down vote.

    Shortly thereafter, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi speaking to the Democratic Caucus said that the vote on healthcare reform will represent a historic change for America.  She’s right.

    Just as imperial incompetence, decadence and monetary trouble contributed to the fall of the Roman Empire, this Leftist Revolution being perpetrated by Fearless Reader and his brutish minions is destroying America.

    In my lifetime, I have never seen my countrymen so vehemently divided against one another.  Never have I seen a president who was more divisive, arrogant and willing to dismiss the will of the people.

    Jeffrey T. Kuhner, writing for The Washington Times, makes this observation:

    “Since coming to office, he [Obama] has behaved without any constitutional restraints. The power of the federal government has exploded. He has de facto nationalized key sectors of American life—the big banks, financial institutions, the automakers, large tracts of energy-rich land from Montana to New Mexico. His cap-and-trade proposal, along with a newly empowered Environmental Protection Agency, seeks to impose massive new taxes and regulations upon industry. It is a form of green socialism: Much of the economy would fall under a command-and-control bureaucratic corporatist state. Mr. Obama even wants the government to take over student loans.”

    “Yet his primary goal has always been to gobble up the health care system. The most troubling aspect of the Obamacare debate, however, is not the measure’s sweeping and radical aims—the transformation of one-sixth of the U.S. economy, crippling tax increases, higher premiums, state-sanctioned rationing, longer waiting lines, the erosion of the quality of medical care and the creation of a huge, permanent administrative bureaucracy. Rather, the most alarming aspect is the lengths to which the Democrats are willing to go to achieve their progressive, anti-capitalist agenda.”

    “Obamacare is opposed by nearly two-thirds of the public, more than 60 percent of independents and almost all Republicans and conservatives. It has badly fractured the country, dangerously polarizing it along ideological and racial lines. Even a majority of Democrats in the House are deeply reluctant to support it.”

    “Numerous states—from Idaho to Virginia to Texas—have said they will sue the federal government should Obamacare become law. They will declare themselves exempt from its provisions, tying up the legislation in the courts for years to come.”

    “Mr. Obama is willing to devour his presidency, his party’s congressional majority and—most disturbing—our democratic institutional safeguards to enact it. He is a reckless ideologue who is willing to sacrifice the country’s stability in pursuit of a socialist Utopia.”

    Let me be clear, while Kuhner suggests impeachment, I am not.  The mainstream, for its duplicity in turning a blind eye to the many questions his candidacy raised, should be impeached.

    November 2, 2010 will be a day of reckoning.  A defining moment.  Throw out all the bums and weak sisters.  All the Progressives.  All the hard-of-hearing or deaf predators of our liberty.  Throw them out on their damned fourth point of contact.

    “This and no other is the root from which a tyrant springs, when he first appears he is a protector.”~Plato, Greek Philosopher, 428BC—348BC

    Pelosi Calls a Mysterious Meeting – Ladies Only 

    Via Instapundit
    Roll Call reports:

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is asking all female Democratic Members to attend a hastily called meeting Wednesday morning but isn’t saying what the meeting is about.

    Pelosi’s office sent an e-mail out Tuesday evening requesting that all female Democrats come to the Members-only meeting at 10 a.m.

    An aide to one Democratic Member said Pelosi’s office said the topic of the meeting was “to be determined.”

    Is she secretly planning a women’s blog to compete with Potluck or channeling Carol Shea Porter as the Instapundit link suggests? If I had to guess she is looking for a consensus on potential abortion language changes to sway a few Stupak supporters. That’s my hunch, any other ideas?
