Freshman Rep. Allen West: Nancy Pelosi 'somewhat delusional'

Allen West, a freshman member of the Republican Study Committee, called former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) “somewhat delusional” Thursday evening during an interview on Fox News in response to a question from Fox’s Patti Ann Browne.

“You heard Nancy Pelosi saying, look, if it’s good for the country, basically, who cares how we got there?” Browne said. When asked for his response, West didn’t hold back.

“Well, I think that former Speaker Pelosi is somewhat delusional, but also you have to remember that this was the person that said that we have to pass this bill in order to find out what is in this bill,” West said from the Capitol Rotunda.

“There has been a deception against the American people from the onset ... the president said that this was not a tax. Now we know it is only constitutional because it is seen as a tax.”

I'm with you Allen West!  The WHOLE Administration has to go!!!!!!  From the top (Obama) on down has to go ASAP!!  These are the worst corrupt people in our Administration that has ever come to pass.  I saw from the very beginning that there was something SERIOUSLY wrong with them.  And I was right!!!  Let's dump them all and get some TRUE Americans that are HONEST with the people of our country.  This country was founded on God and shall remain founded on God!!!!

Glorie -While I agree the whole administration has to go, I feel we should "dump them all" into cells at Fort Leavenworth awaiting military tribunals for treason AND espionage!  What they have, purposefully, done to America goes far beyond mere corruption!  The reason they should face military tribunals- -they are ALL "domestic terrorists"! They do NOT warrant civil trials, in a civilian court, their crimes go way beyond that!

June, I surely agree with you!  They should be put in cells and tried for treason and espionage.  I know, they planned this Giant scheme for a long time.  Today wouldn't be soon enough for me!!!

do not waste the cells you know what that means they do not even deserve to root on taxpayer money

Two  fine ` Idiot's in California  Nancy  and Jerry  Brownie..Lord  their  still  here..! rest-my-case. 

Mister Allen West would stand as an exceptional Vice-President.

Without a doubt, my vote is for Allen West for Vice President! If that should happen they would steamroll this election, I believe Romney/West would make a helluva team in the Whitehouse, bring back and restore the dignity and respect and integrity the White house and the American People so richly deserve!

Somewhat!!!??? Both she and Reid are beyond any comprehension. It is sad West is one honest man amidst the vermin.

Right on!

"Delusional" is much too kind and mild a description for this witch, and yes - I AM serious. Holding Holder in contempt of Congress is racist and politically motivated, according to Dame Pelosi who has, of course, never engaged in any such contemptible antics. If anyone knows anything admirable or even likable about this gorgon, please advise.

Hey! Hey! Hey!  Let us NOT defame creatures who make their livings devouring noxious insects and rodent vermin.  Now if we could only find a reptile large enough to swallow the likes of Pelosi and Reid and have the steel lined gut to keep from regurgitating them!

Somewhat delusional?  Hell, she's completely out of touch with the real world, but then again, so are most of the people in Washington. She and Reid are just a whole lot more delusional.




Reporter Kicked Out Of Michelle Obama
Conference For Violating ‘Black Girl Code’

The Black Entertainment Television channel recently hosted a conference in south Florida for black women known as “Leading Women Defined,” which featured a casual conversation between former first lady Michelle Obama and former senior White House adviser Valerie Jarrett.

But according to the New York Post’s Page Six, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who was in attendance was booted from the remainder of the conference after she wrote an article about some of the comments Obama had made during the discussion.

Robin Givhan, a fashion critic and staff writer for The Washington Post, documented the highlights of the friendly chat between Obama and Jarrett.

Some of the highlights of the conversation included the former first lady’s thoughts on President Donald Trump’s inauguration as the Obamas prepared to leave the White House, the role she played during the 2008 election, her difficulty settling in as “the spouse” to the president, how she described her White House garden as a “subversive act” to garner trust with the public and her upcoming memoir. Of course Givhan also wrote about what Obama was wearing … after all, she is a fashion critic.

But following the publication of the article, according to Page Six, BET demanded Givhan leave the conference early amid claims that she had violated a “sacred space” by publishing the content of the conversation.

They also canceled a panel discussion that Givhan initially had been asked to moderate.

However, Page Six noted that BET’s claim that Obama’s discussion was “private” and not intended to be shared with anyone else outside the small gathering in attendance didn’t hold up to scrutiny given the fact that BET itself posted clips from the discussion on its site.

Furthermore, Jarrett also posted those clips on social media and told everyone to “tune in” to the network so they could hear what Obama had to say.

Shortly thereafter, the dispute descended into a sharp back-and-forth on social media between Givhan and others who were irked at what she had done, as can be seen on Givhan’s Twitter feed.

Several of her critics asserted that the conversation had been “off-the-record” — an assertion Givhan flatly denied — and one user claimed the reporter had “violated a sacred trust” between black women.

Another said what she had done was a “complete violation of journalistic ethics and Black girl code, all at once,” while still another asserted through a hashtag that Givhan was “#notoneofus,” as if she were being banished from the exclusive realm of accepted professional black women.

For their part, a BET representative told Page Six that Givhan had been “invited as a guest (not working press) to moderate a fashion panel,” and noted that her travel and lodging expenses had been paid for by the network.

“She was made aware that it was an intimate conversation in a sacred space of sisterhood and fellowship,” the rep added.

Neither Givhan nor representatives for Obama responded to requests for comment on the report from Page Six.

If the WaPo reporter really was instructed ahead of time that the conversation between Obama and Jarrett was “off the record” and a private affair, but published anyway, then BET was justified in booting her from the remainder of the conference — though the mean-spirited commentary she received on social media still crossed the line.

But if Givhan received no prior warning on the matter — and given the fact that BET itself published the conversation later — then this is just a major display of hypocrisy and unnecessary infighting.

What do you think?
