Trump, Moderates to Derail Pelosi’s Power Over Dem-Controlled House

With Democrats taking back a narrow majority in the U.S. House of Representatives, and Republicans expanding their narrow lead in the Senate, the political landscape will look vastly different in 2019. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi expects to regain the speakership, and she has been outspoken about weaponizing the powerful position.

Leader Pelosi has been vocal about opening hundreds of stifling investigations targeting the president and even impeaching U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Her leadership to date has been a vicious “resist” and “obstruct” call that has divided the country. In her post-election speech, Pelosi took a different tact. She claims her tenure will be more transparent, and that impeaching Pres. Trump no longer tops her to-do list. That may be because many moderate Democrats are not on board for two years of gridlock.

Pennsylvania Rep. Conor Lamb won his seat after running an anti-Pelosi campaign and has become a beacon of what the Democratic party “could” become. Rep. Lamb is one of a class of moderate Democrats that are far more interested in doing the people’s work than attacking a president who beat them badly in 2016.

“I want to build infrastructure and get prescription drug prices down,” Rep. Lamb reportedly said after winning Pennsylvania’s 18th District. “I really do have optimism about that. I think the President has proven that he’s interested in negotiating on a number of issues. [President Trump] has talked a lot about prescription drugs recently, and infrastructure.”

Recent election polls pointed to health care as the top voter issue followed closely by immigration. Health care prices soared due to miscalculations of the ObamaCare legislation that allowed Big Pharma unfettered pricing power. Pres. Trump has been using executive orders and the bully pulpit to curb medication costs. Moderates in the U.S. House such as Rep. Lamb are well-positioned on such policy issues to negotiate bipartisan solutions, and he is on the record as not supporting Pelosi.

That may be because Nancy Pelosi has an entirely different focus in mind for the next Congress. With speakership aspirations, Pelosi plans to continue the divisive resist and obstruct policies of the far left. Already, she is talking about opening investigations designed to impede bipartisanship.

“Subpoena power is interesting, to use it or not to use it,” Pelosi recently said. “It is a great arrow to have in your quiver in terms of negotiating on other subjects.”

She reportedly said House Democrats plan to open a wide range of Congressional investigations to “strategically” make political gains by creating gridlock. She knows full well as a veteran Congresswoman that Republicans and the president will be forced to respond in kind.

“If the Democrats think they are going to waste taxpayer money investigating us at the House level, then we will likewise be forced to consider investigating them for all of the leaks of Classified Information, and much else, at the Senate level,” Pres. Trump reportedly tweeted. “Two can play that game!”

Rather than work across the aisle on critical issues such as escalating prescription drug costs that drive up health care policies, she plans to use tired old political alarmism about Medicare and Medicaid.

“It’s about stopping the GOP and (Senate Majority Leader) Mitch McConnell’s assault on Medicare and Medicaid, the Affordable Care Act, and the health care of 130 million Americans living with pre-existing medical conditions,” Pelosi reportedly said.

Laced in her hollow rhetoric, Pelosi seems to pretend the country is not enjoying an economic revitalization due to Trump Administration policies. Her post-election talk has also focused on creating “more good-paying jobs” as if the wages are not increasing for the first time in many years. The country is considered at full employment with African-Americans and Latino-Americans making historic gains.

But Pres. Trump appears to have his finger on the pulse of House Democrats. Moderates have aired their displeasure about radical liberal policies such as sanctuary cities and open borders that Pelosi favors. Although Democrats took back a slim majority in the House, there are enough mainstreamers to cross over and deliver on key issues. That may be why Pres. Trump not only congratulated Pelosi on her win, he’s endorsing her for Speaker of the House.

“In all fairness, Nancy Pelosi deserves to be chosen Speaker of the House by the Democrats,” Pres. Trump tweeted. “If they give her a hard time, perhaps we will add some Republican votes. She has earned this great honor!”

The GOP considers Nancy Pelosi the gift that keeps on giving because her policy positions are so far out of touch with everyday Americans. Given the slim majority, the GOP would only need a handful of Democrats to jump ship to get things done. Nancy Pelosi may want to drive a wedge in Washington, but Pres. Trump has other plans.

  1. Anything that exposes Pelosi as a hypocritical, potential, enemy of the people is good -remember, some years back she pushed for wage increases, but specifically excluded the location where her family has business interests, so the workers on her estate did not benefit. she is a disgrace to America

  2. Hillary, we know that you have to think your fooling people with your lawyers, you should have been Dis-pared from being a Lawyer.

  3. If the Dems put in Crazy Nancy as Speaker, they are as crazy as she is. She’s also said she will work to rescind the very popular tax cuts earlier this year. And scoffed at the $1,000 a great many Americans received because of it. Hey Crazy Nancy, not many Americans are multi-millionaires like you…earned on the backs of ILLEGALS working in your vineyards.

    1. Wow! Did not know about illegals working in her vineyards. No wonder she is so against the border wall and pretends to want border crossings for humanitarian reasons, when it’s all about making a profit. This hypocritical old hag should retire and if the Dems have any sense they will never allow her to be speaker ever again.

      1. She is the gift that keeps giving………….she is a crazy far left luney, and she has raised huge money for the republican party. But, many of the dems that got elected are middle of the road folks who want to get some things done, so who knows where Ms Nancy is going to be. She may have a hard time getting the speakership from her own folks if she keep up her current tactics.

      2. I’m sure a majority of these “well-to-do” people have people from across “some border” working for them. Take Feinstein, for example, a man from China as her chauffeur. I’m sure many have gardeners, housekeepers, nannies, etc. If you’ve got the money, can hire someone at a cheap rate, and then take it off of “expenses”. Hey, they’ve got it going. That’s why no borders, no CIA, etc. We had all better reread Al Wilson’s, “THE SNAKE”. I think you’ll get the picture. God Bless America and God give Pres. Trump a double portion of wisdom and strength.

    2. It appears that new incoming Democrats are not on board with Nancy Pelosi rhetoric regarding continuing investigations. They are concerned about their constituents and wish to work across the isle with Republicans regarding medicare, medicade, illegal immigrants, infrastructure, etc. In my opinion, in all fairness to the Democratic party, Nancy should step aside as speaker of the House…… I have a feeling these moderate Democrats will not follow her…. therefore, she would be useless as speaker…. the Democrats now have control of the House….. it’s time for Nancy to retire……. she will not be an effective leader with many of the newly elected Democrats, therefore, she will be useless. Retire Nancy.

  4. Stop all this DIMOCRAT bullcrap, for once and all. Trump has got to start enforcing all laws we have on the books. It looks to me that every Dept. within the Government/Congress/Judicial, needs to be drastically overhauled, they’re all CORRUPT! Term limits should have been on this mid-term ballot, it is long overdue, I hope hope to hell they get on to 2020 Ballot. It should be as such; 2 TERMS @ 4 years ea.(no 6 years), and MANDATORY RETIREMENTS @ 70, all Dept. even the Supreme Court(especially the Supreme Court, there should be no such thinganywhere within our systems as a Lifetime appointment. Give them 20 years, then out the rascals go. Case in point, look at Ginsburg (85) what a damm joke. After immigration as the #1 issue, right after it, is bringing our congress back in line, they have been running rampant for way too long.

    1. understatement of the year…she really isnt a nice person,.
      filled with venom,
      always talks about america being divided,,,yet that is precisely what
      has been happening coming from democrats….always thought america was
      a very patriotic country but when obama came into power he kept on highlighting
      race, why/?? and to have open borders anywhere in the world is madness,
      surely in todays world of terrorism,,,people entering should do so legally…nothing wrong with legal immigration,,,,not illegal, that is the way to keep control,,,surely// we here in south africa think trump is a strong leader and we like the way he does things,,,nothing wrong with straight talk,,,,,

  5. Obama created the Tea Party………………….Pelosi, Schumer, Booker, Waters have created the “American” Democrat Party within the Socialist Communist Party. It appears that some Democrats want to “take back” America and as Nancy herself said, “and drain the swamp”. Not realizing that she was referring to herself………. Yes, she’s that stupid.

  6. Pelosi needs to move on. She is no longer with it. We need new blood and ideas & members that will work as a team. PERIOD !

    1. It is time the Democratic party gets back to basics. We need conservative/moderate Democrats in office, not the vile, venom speaking radical, socialist Democrats we now have in office…. With the socialists climate of the Democratic party, I can not Biblical and conscience vote a Democratic ticket.

  7. It’s a toss up as to who is the most insane…Nasty Nancy Pelosi, Mad Maxine Waters, Upchuck Schemer, or Hitlery Clinton. Toss a few others into the mix, like the, obviously insane, extremely child-like, Ocasio-Cortez, and a few others, and you have a recipe for disaster on a grand scale.
    I have heard many people say that there needs to be more fresh, young minds in our government. It seems that most of the “fresh, young minds” are from the same mold as Ocasio-Cortez, and Beto O’Rourke, those kind of minds are the exact opposite of what this country needs!

  8. Does this woman and her cohorts care about America? I do; and I just became a Citizen. I had to take an Oath of Allegiance to the USA to defend the Constitution and protect it and America from her enemies both external and internal. Mrs Pelosi appears to be an internal enemy of the Constitution. How can I defend it against her?

  9. Nancy, Maxine, Chuck, Hillary, and a select few others can’t be trusted. They should have got ride of them a long time ago.
    They will never accept the fact that Donald Trump is our president. They have been crying because their candidate lost and it blew they political agenda out of the window.

    1. The names you mention, Kathy, are all Progressive Democrats, aka Socialists. When Webb was asked why the Communists didn’t field a candidate in 2018, he responded, “The Democrats ran with our platform”. In fact, you don’t have to look very hard to find that there are about 100 men and women in Congress and Senate who are actually Communists. Some publicly wear the Communist lapel pin instead of the American flag lapel pin. It’s despicable.

      And to Peter, who just became a citizen, I used to work with a young woman who had become a citizen. All you had to do was mention illegal border crossing and/or committing any kind of crime once you were here and she would just become incensed at the situation. My Grandfather came here and had to sign not only the oath of allegiance you refer to but state that he had a skill that would enable him to support himself. Congrats on becoming a citizen. Welcome.

  10. this mid-term reveals two things 1) just how ignorant, dumbed-down and stupid half of America is! 2) just how many illegals were allowed to vote

    there is no way in hell the Dimocraps would have won the house without the millions of illegal votes – the Senate needs to investigate this and shut down illegal voting, voter fraud, deceased voting, multiple voting & electronic voting machine fraud

  11. The Dems are hopelessly infected with Trump Derangement Syndrome. No way San Fran Feces Nan reels in Separated at Birth, James Brown’s twin, Pencil Neck and ‘The Wadler’ Nadler. In January they’ll be a revolt from the Next Gen Dems who are fed up with the current ossified, geriatric trio that will try to hang on to their power. A similar event is evolving on the Republican side as they are quietly purging the Rino’s in their midst. Jobs and the economy will remain the key factor. MAGA rules!

  12. pelosi is a senile version of the female clinton…we’re fortunate that the beast clinton doesn’t have pelosi’s physical health, and that pelosi doesn’t have the beast’s wicked brain….let’s help keep nancy-with-the-botoxed-brain right where she is…there isn’t a sane, honest, patriotic American in the entire ‘crat sewer as a replacement that would be good for the country.

  13. Lamb sounds like he is a real guy and not a puppet of the elite IF he is what he says, things might go better.
    To solve the high cost of health care is easy. REPEAL OBAMACARE. And put a crimp on insurance companies.
    Immigration will only be solved by building the wall and stopping illegal immigration. Then round up the illegals and threaten them with deportation unless they agree to stay WITHOUT CITIZENSHIP AND THE RIGHT TO VOTE. That is absolute.
    Lastly, if the REpublicans had addressed VOTER FRAUD, it is likely that the Democrats would not have control of anything
    II Chronicles 7:14. Badly needed since the elite are still determined to TAKE TOTAL CONTROL.

  14. Not just illegals. Massive numbers of MAIL IN BALLOTS marked in the back room of the office of elections in Broward County.
    Documented and verified. The solution to that is major federal charges. see if Mueller will work on that. He is good at trying to get one person in the crime family to turn on the others. GET ER DONE.
