Pelosi Just Announced What Her Top Priority Will Be In Dem-Controlled House – It’s A Doozy!

Published

on

And here it comes from Nancy Pelosi… her number one priority now that the Democrats have regained control of the House of Representatives. Surprise! It’s not Obamacare and it’s not impeaching President Trump. It’s gun control.

Pelosi wants to pass far-reaching gun control laws that will strip constitutional rights from Americans. The sad part is she may get some support from Republicans who are squishy on the Second Amendment especially when there has just been another horrific shooting in California. The Washington Times has more on this development:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said passing stricter gun control laws will be a “priority” in the new Democrat-controlled House.

“There is bipartisan legislation to have common sense background checks to prevent guns going into the wrong hands,” the California Democrat told CNN’s Chris Cuomo Thursday night.

“This will be a priority for us in the next Congress,” Mrs. Pelosi added.

Her comments came a day after a gunman fatally shot 12 people with a Glock handgun at a bar hosting a college country music night in Thousands Oaks, California.

Mrs. Pelosi, who said she’s “100 percent” confident she’ll retake the title of House speaker, has vowed to push for a range of gun-control measures, including restrictions on high-capacity magazines and universal background checks.

She said she’s confident such legislation would make it through the Republican-controlled Senate because “public sentiment” about guns is on her side.

“The American people deserve real action to end the daily epidemic of gun violence that is stealing the lives of our children on campuses, in places of worship and on our streets,” she said in a statement after the shooting. “House Democrats will fight to pass bipartisan, commonsense solutions to prevent gun violence in communities across the country.

Democrat-Controlled House Just Changed Major 181-Year Rule For Muslims

Published

* By

181 years is a long time for a dress code to stay in place… even for Congress. Hats were forbidden in the House of Representatives, but no more. Of course, members are being told to use good judgment but given their track record, this should be interesting to watch. Now, men and women will be allowed to wear ‘hats’ in the chamber.

Change is not always good and this will probably wind up being a circus. Ilhan Omar, a newly elected Democratic congresswoman from Minnesota, is behind this move. She will be the first to wear an Islamic hijab in the chamber. Lawmakers will be allowed to wear religious headwear and coverings for medical reasons – so there are some restrictions on this at least for now.

Chicks on the Right has the scoop on this story:

Ok…so I have a feeling some “traditionalists” are going to have an issue with this. CHANGE IS BAAD.

But honestly, after hearing from Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman, I don’t have a problem with this at all. I think (I hope) that Congresspeople will go about this with respect and their best judgment. (That’s… a high hope for Congress.)

So anyway, the U.S. House has changed a 181-year-old dress code rule against hats.

According to Daily Wire:

Back in 1837, the U.S. House of Representatives banned the wearing of hats in the chamber in a move to differentiate itself from the British Parliament.

But in 2018, the elected lawmakers have voted to rescind the rule. Ilhan Omar, a newly elected Democratic congresswoman from Minnesota, will be the first to wear a hijab in the chamber.

“There are those kinds of policies that oftentimes get created because people who have blind spots are in positions of influence and positions of power,” Omar told the New York Post on Thursday. “I think it will be really exciting to see the stuff that we notice within the rules that don’t work for a modern-day America.”

Under the revised rules, lawmakers will be allowed to wear religious headwear and coverings for medical reasons.

I’m not a fan of Ilhan Omar’s, but I am a staunch supporter of religious freedom. I’m not the kind of hypocrite who supports the rights of Christians not to have their religion infringed upon, and will not do the same for others. It’s Omar’s constitutionally-protected RIGHT to wear her hijab. She was elected by her constituents to represent them. She should not have to choose between upholding her religious dress code and that of her congressional position. The END.

And that’s not all. The new rule allows for head covering for religious AND medical reasons. Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman made a compelling point.

The New Jersey Democrat had a tumor successfully removed and has undergone chemotherapy since September to ensure she’s cancer-free.

The treatment caused her hair to fall out. She wears a hat outside, but when she votes on the House floor she takes it off.

“I just have a bald head and I’m somewhat getting used to it hoping that it’s a very temporary thing,” Watson Coleman told The Post. “I don’t think I would start wearing a (hat) now, but I recognize that if someone else has the same issue and wants to, they should be able to.”

So sure… I’m as traditional as the next guy. But I ABSOLUTELY think the “no-hat” rule can be bent for religious and medical reasons.

I’m SURE some of you will disagree with me on this one.

Newly Dem Congresswoman Didn’t Realize You’re Not Supposed To Admit This Out Loud…

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by Chicks On The Right:

The Democrats spent the entire midterm election cycle promising a bunch of free stuff…

And REFUSING to explain how they’ll pay for it.

Other than you know, this:

“We’ll just PAY FOR IT.” -Alexandria Ocasio Cortez.

Anyway, Democratic Congresswoman-elect, Jennifer Wexton hasn’t yet realized you’re not supposed to ACTUALLY answer the question.

How do you pay for single-payer healthcare?

Through much, MUCH higher taxes. That’s how.

Sure… she still TRIED to dodge. But not hard enough.

WAYYYY too honest for her party. Get it right, Jenn.

Let’s also not forget how Ocasio-Cortez threatened her fellow Dems, which immediately backfired on her.

The Federalist Papers reports:

Socialist superstar and “future of the Democrat party” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just threatened fellow Democrats who don’t fall in line with her radical leftist agenda.

In the process she made herself even more of a joke than she already was, per Politico:

The incoming star congresswoman from New York again put the Democratic establishment on notice that she and activist groups on the left aren’t content with a Democratic-controlled House: They are determined to move the party to the left.

“Long story short, I need you to run for office,” Ocasio-Cortez said Saturday on a video conference call hosted by Justice Democrats, as the group launched a campaign dubbed “#OurTime.” Justice Democrats supported Ocasio-Cortez’s primary campaign against powerful Rep. Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.).

“All Americans know money in politics is a huge problem, but unfortunately the way that we fix it is by demanding that our incumbents give it up or by running fierce campaigns ourselves,” Ocasio-Cortez added. “That’s really what we need to do to save this country. That’s just what it is.”

The incoming congresswoman’s chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, a co-founder of Justice Democrats, was blunter.

“We need new leaders, period,” he said on the call. “We gotta primary folks.”

Now THAT is hilarious!

Ocasio-Cotez is getting a bit too big for her britches and this is certain to alienate many congressional Democrats.

The freshman Congresswoman should perhaps take a step back, learn how government works and read a few books on economics, before she ventures out to lead a new movement.
