Bannon Gives ‘War Horse’ Pelosi A 10/10 Job Performance Rating

Nancy Pelosi has an unexpected fan. Steve Bannon, former White House chief strategist, graded the House speaker a 10 out of 10 on her job performance so far in a clip of the show “The Circus.” “She’s a war horse,” he said. “For what she’s trying to accomplish, I think Pelosi’s done a good job.” He applauded her recent impeachment comments as the perfect way to step back unless the political winds shift and the American public gets on board with ousting President Donald Trump from office. Watc...

Trump Says Theresa May ‘Didn’t Listen’ To His Brexit Negotiation Ideas

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump on Thursday sharply criticized Britain’s handling of negotiations over leaving the European Union, saying the talks have been bungled and that the wrenching debate was dividing the country. “I’m surprised at how badly it’s all gone from the standpoint of a negotiation,” he said.

Senate rejects Trump border emergency as Republicans defect

By ALAN FRAM, LISA MASCARO and CATHERINE LUCEY WASHINGTON — The Republican-run Senate rejected President Donald Trump’s declaration of a national emergency at the southwest border on Thursday, setting up a veto fight and dealing him a conspicuous rebuke as he tested how boldly he could ignore Congress in pursuit of his highest-profile goal.

‘Party’s Over’: GOPers Seem Ready To Deal Trump Defeat On Nat’l Emergency

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Republican-led Senate is set to deal President Donald Trump a rebuke on his declaration of a national emergency at the Mexican border, with the only remaining question how many GOP senators will join Democrats in defying him.

Since the Democratic-contr...

Pelosi Snatches Back Office Space That Paul Ryan Gave To Pence

One of Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) privileges as House speaker is to distribute highly prized office space however she wants. One of her first orders of business has been to strip Vice President Mike Pence of a mostly ceremonial office gifted to him by former House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-MN). the first-floor office, prime real estate, was given as a sign of the synergy between Pence and Ryan and the other House Republicans. The vice president also has a standing office on the Senate side, which he ...

The Emerging Democratic Minority

The biases of the media are so pervasive that there is little recognition of the steady disintegration of the Democrats, though it is occurring every day. Rational and intelligent members of the center-Left write to me every week with new concerns about where the Left is going. The Democratic National Committee’s decision not to allow Fox News to put on one of their candidates’ debates confirms the weakness of the party and of its leaders. The process of atomizing society into smaller and smalle...

Trump made history: introducing tax cuts made him LESS popular

Politicians love introducing tax-cuts, because they're reliable vote-getters, even if they're structured to blow up later by giving massive breaks to the super-rich and more modest breaks to middle-class voters, resulting in mounting deficits and eventual service cuts. But Trump has managed the impossible: he signed trillions of dollars of tax-cuts into law and lost in the polls as a result. Trump managed this feat by handing middle-class and poor people tax bills instead of refunds, whil...

House Passes Funding Bill, Sending It To Trump’s Desk

WASHINGTON (AP) — Congress lopsidedly approved a border security compromise Thursday that would avert a second painful government shutdown, but a new confrontation was ignited — this time over President Donald Trump’s plan to bypass lawmakers and declare a national emergency to siphon billions from other federal coffers for his wall on the Mexican boundary. Money in the bill for border barriers, about $1.4 billion, is far below the $5.7 billion Trump insisted he needed to build a wall along t...

Messianic Politics on Display: The Green New Deal and the New Political Order

Since her election to congress last November, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has broken the traditional mold of a freshman legislator in Congress. Freshmen rarely make the headlines.
