Pelosi on Pork Barrel Spending in CR Bill: ‘Why Are We Talking About This?'

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) asked why reporters were making an issue out of the additional spending that was added to the continuing resolution that re-opened the federal government and increased the debt limit.

“What difference does it make? Why are we talking about this? We’re talking about a bill that as I said last night, I’m not asking anybody to vote for this bill on the merits,” Pelosi said.

The bill included funds to fix flooded roads in Colorado, $3 million for a civil liberties oversight board, a death benefit payment to the late Sen. Frank Lautenberg’s (D-N.J.) widow, as well as an increase in authorization for spending on construction on the lower Ohio River in Illinois and Kentucky, the Hill reported.

She is one on the most ignorant fools in the corrupt government. She had been one of the biggest crooks in years to hit our government.

What can anyone expect from a twit? Porker Pelosi isn't asking anyone to vote on the bills merits? What does she think we elect congressman for? There just is not helping the stupid. Her IQ  must be -200 at least. I had a brother-in-law who was retarded at about a 7 year old level with a way lot more intelligence than this (whatever word describes it).

Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D) – N.J. Minimum net worth: $56.8 million Lautenberg's minimum net worth rose about $2 million in 2011, to $56.8 million. Really that widow seriously needed the money. A true Liberal that Rich I hope would say to give it too the poor's after all that is who votes for them.

NO, NO, NO!!!  Not HIS wealth...  YOURS is what needs re-distibution.  He wants to keep his in case of an emergency.  He might have to fill his gas tank!  Or buy more caviar for his lunch party.

She obviously thinks that the checkbook she write checks with belongs to her.  With this language you can truly see how far her head is up her own tail.  Like the rest of these scumbags Pelosi needs to be removed and tried for high crimes -- NO we did not have to pass this piece of crap health bill we all knew it was administrative over-reach  This might be a cool idea for you traitors but that is not the way our nation functions and I see that if a elected official can act and conduct themself with personal interest in mind and not merit - then it is safe for Americans to act on behalf of our country .  Screw you I will not fear the government But you will fear We The People.  This is the last straw

Carlos, remember that it was ONLY the DEMOCRATS that voted for this Obamacare - no Republican was stupid enough to fall for Nancy Pelosis' remark.

Democrats own the full responsibility and consequences for the failure of this monstrosity. Remember to tell your friends that the extortionary cost of their insurance and medical expenses is brought to them because the Democrats in Congress were stupid, blind and greedy!

Sorry Daniel; but, it is pretty obvious that they have been showing their brains or lack thereof!

Exactly -- Very much like those who vote based on skin color California votes according to how dingy and out of touch with reality someone can be - I am writing from The Peeples Reublik of Kalifornia

Vote this bitch and the lying HALF-BREED out!  However, living in California, it just won't happen.  Too many "low educated types"!

The stupid hag has been taking lessons from Hillary..anything they can't or won't answer is not supposed to make any difference. Waste-of-skin females of the left sure makes one appreciate Sarah Palin and the other conservative women governors.

Complete idiot.  It is scary to think that anyone would vote for her.





Rush Limbaugh Explains How Robert Mueller
Will Attempt To Financially Destroy President Trump

 Special Counsel Robert Mueller has crossed President Trump’s “red line” after issuing a subpoena for documents related to the Trump Organization’s business dealings with Russia.

New York Times reports:

The special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, has subpoenaed the Trump Organization to turn over documents, including some related to Russia, according to two people briefed on the matter. The order is the first known time that the special counsel demanded documents directly related to President Trump’s businesses, bringing the investigation closer to the president. […] The Trump Organization has said that it never had real estate holdings in Russia, but witnesses recently interviewed by Mr. Mueller have been asked about a possible real estate deal in Moscow. In 2015, a longtime business associate of Mr. Trump’s emailed Mr. Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen at his Trump Organization account claiming he had ties to President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia and said that building a Trump Tower in Moscow would help Mr. Trump’s presidential campaign.

Radio host Rush Limbaugh theorized on his program Friday that one of Mueller’s true objectives is to financially destroy President Trump.

Partial transcript via Breitbart News:

And these requests, the subpoena for documents from the Trump Organization, I ask you again, what has that to do with the campaign and with collusion and with the Russians? They’ve already been looking into Trump business in Russia with the Miss, what is it, USA, whatever his pageant is.

Do you all remember during the early days of the campaign there was news that Trump, in a tax return something like 20 years ago, took a $900 million deduction that was granted and survived an audit by the IRS? Now, I forget the details. It had to do with losses that he had incurred in that year in building things. It was around 900 or $920 million deduction. I’ll never forget when it was reported because most people will never come close to ever having that in a lifetime, and to have a guy personally write that much off?

Anyway, I think Mueller wants that $920 million back. I think Mueller wants to prove that that was a faulty deduction. I think that they want to go back, they want to get Trump’s tax returns because they want to nullify that $900 million deduction, and then they want to collect 20 years of interest and penalties and wipe Trump out.

In the meantime, President Trump’s lawyers are in the process of negotiating with special counsel Robert Mueller to bring the Russia probe to an end, reports Rebecca Ballhaus and Peter Nicholas of the Wall Street Journal.

Mueller’s tentacles continue to reach further and further.

CNN reported that investigators are attempting to determine whether former Blackwater chief Erik Prince misled the  House Intelligence Committee about a meeting he had in Seychelles in January of 2017.

Prince is accused of using the meeting as an opportunity to establish a secret back channel with Russia.

Fox News’ Catherine Herridge spoke with one of President Trump’s personal lawyers about the new subpoena request by Special Counsel Mueller.

According to Herridge, Trump’s lawyer was unaware of the subpoena and said it may be a ‘wrap up’ subpoena or ‘clean up’ subpoena which may signal the end of the investigation.
