Nancy doesn't own the house; we do

Nancy Pelosi lacks a lot of things, but gall isn't one of them. She says DJT will not speak in "her house". Someone needs to remind her that she doesn't own the House of Representatives; we the people own it. And we expect whoever holds the office of President to speak there. If this matter cannot be resolved in a manner which shows proper respect to our elected President, he should deliver the speech in the most appropriate place: by the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Our ancestors, our peo...

100K Bricks to Chuck & Nancy

The greatness of Donald Trump ... got a text message from my friend and POTUS. He's raising money to send 100,000 bricks to Chuck and Nancy's office. This is brilliant! Never would I get such an awesome text from another Republican. Pure genius. Comic gold.

Trump: Pelosi Cancelling State Of The Union Is ‘A Great Blotch’ On The Country

Adding to his previous comments responding to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) cancellation of the State of the Union address until the government reopens, President Donald Trump on Wednesday slammed the move by Pelosi as “a great blotch” on the country. “ The State  of the Union speech has been cancelled by Nancy Pelosi because she doesn’t want to hear the truth,” Trump told reporters from the White House’s Cabinet Room, saying that Pelosi is “afraid of the truth and the super-left D...

Trump plans to walk right up into Nancy Pelosi's space — Will she smirk and block his way?

"Trump says he’ll deliver State of the Union at the Capitol despite Pelosi’s request to postpone" (WaPo).I'm picturing him entering banging a drum and walking straight up to her and standing there beating the drum right in her face. Because that is the state of the union.ADDED: A more "serious" view: This is right, IMO. Pelosi shouldn't have cited security concerns as a reason for disinviting Trump from giving the SOTU. It would have sent a stronger message just to say she wouldn't pretend it wa...

Report: Trump Could Stage Rally To Bolster State Of The Union Speech

President Donald Trump is planning for the potential of a parallel political rally to bolster his State of the Union address, ABC News reported Tuesday, citing multiple unnamed sources familiar with the planning. In the network’s words, Trump is planning for two different “State of the Union” speeches, “ one a more traditional address delivered to Congress in the House chamber or some other location in D.C., the other prepared for a political rally at a location outside of Washington, D.C.”...

State of the Union 2019: When will Trump make the annual address to Congress and what is its history?

Donald Trump is currently pondering how to deliver his second State of the Union address to Congress with the US government mired in its longest shutdown in history. House speaker Nancy Pelosi asked the president to postpone his speech on 16 January and suggested he submit it by letter, a manoeuvre Republicans were quick to brand “political” and which appeared to provoke Mr Trump into denying Ms Pelosi’s congressional delegation the use of a military plane to visit troops in Afghanistan. The a...

While teachers picket in the rain, taxpayers fear getting soaked

Last Wednesday, a small cluster of rain-soaked teachers, students and supporters stood in a storm at the intersection of Topanga Canyon and Ventura boulevards, about halfway between Canoga Park High School and Woodland Hills Elementary. Motorists honked their support as they splashed past. Honking is free. The teachers of the Los Angeles Unified School District, the nation’s second largest, are in the center of a storm, hitting the bricks after contract talks collapsed, sending nearly 30,000 edu...

Sophia Lillis in First Trailer for 'Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase'

"There's gotta be an explanation! So what do we know?" Surprise! Warner Bros has debuted the first trailer for Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase, a new Nancy Drew movie produced by Ellen DeGeneres that we didn't know much about before this dropped. This small town mystery stars Sophia Lillis, who also played the young Beverly Marsh in It: Chapter One, as "Nance". WB last made a Nancy Drew movie in 2007 starring Emma Roberts. A bit of an outsider struggling to fit in to her new surroundings...

Trump suggests he could deport 11 million migrants if he doesn’t get border wall funding in veiled shutdown threat: ‘Be careful Nancy’

Donald Trump has implied he could launch a “big push” to deport millions of illegal immigrants if he does not get $5.6bn funding for his border wall, in a veiled threat to Democrats over the US government shutdown. As the partial shutdown – triggered by the president’s failure to agree with Democrats a government funding bill if it does not contain money for a wall – entered its 30th day, he warned speaker Nancy Pelosi to “be careful” after she and Democratic Senate leader Chuck Schumer rejecte...

The unions’ war on kids

Disturbingly, union activists are placing kids on picket lines. One little girl parroting union talking points said, “Stand by my teachers. I don’t cross the picket line.” Union activist-in-training. Innocent families delivering children to school are surrounded by angry mobs. My friend is terrified to take her kids to school in Los Angeles Unified. She’s angry at the unions, but as a parent and taxpayer, she’s voiceless. Teachers like me are appalled. We’re hired to serve children and families ...

Technological progress and the global sex recession

We may live amidst what seems a libidinous culture, but oddly also an increasingly sexless time. Of course, the drop in early teen sex, and even more so teen pregnancies represents positive developments, but when lack of social interaction leads to celibacy in the twenties, thirties and beyond, the implications are less than wholesome. The Atlantic recently described a “sex recession” in the United States and most western countries, with fewer people dating and even those in relationship getting...

A wall of counterintelligence secrecy could stand for decades

Lately, all our political controversies seem to involve a wall. The government is shut down by the fight over funding for a wall on the southern border, with President Donald Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi dug in for trench warfare. She pulled the plug on his State of the Union address. He canceled her flight to Afghanistan. You can almost hear the 2020 election galloping toward us and the prospects for peace running off into the distance. But the other wall, which may turn out to be even ...

Two Collared Doves

Some time ago, I wrote about the bird that is a common avian continuity error in period dramas set in Britain. The familiar “coo-coo-cooo” call of the Collared Dove (Streptopelia decaocto) would not have been heard in this green and pleasant land until well after the Second World War. The species had simply not spread its wings to settle on this sceptred isle from its native habitat of The Balkans. As such, you should not be able to hear its plaintive call while Mr Darcy steps sodden from that l...
