Pelosi blames GOP for blocking Dems' trip to Paris climate talks

House Democrats on Thursday suggested Republican leaders purposely altered the legislative schedule to prevent eight Democratic lawmakers from attending the United Nations Conference on Climate Change in Paris.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said the group was scheduled to fly out tonight but had to cancel because House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., called for votes on Friday.

"Whether wittingly or unwittingly, it certainly was not a priority to them," Pelosi said of the Republicans. "The two votes we are taking tomorrow could easily be taken today. So it's unfortunate."

The House is scheduled to vote Friday on a five-day extension of government funding. Current funding runs out Friday at midnight, and a partial government shutdown would happen without congressional action.

BOO Hoo 

peabrainlosi is an effing idiot! Anyone with an ounce of brains wouldn't be listening to her. Maybe if they "ignored" the idiot, she may go away, back to pineapple land where she belongs.

Boo freakin hoo Pillosi, the taxpayers should absolutely not be paying for crazy trips about a hoax like that, our country is $18 TRILLION in debt and the loon dems want to make it $19 TRILLION in debt.

BOO HOO, no wonderful dinners in Paris.  So sad, one of the many, many perks of being a Congress person has, momentarily delayed. 

She should look at it, that 8 less Democrats are contribution to their "Global Warming" and no "TAX DOLLARS" ARE BEING SPENT!!!!

Write this down Nutty Nancy: YOU are a thief and an Obama brown nose!

Time for you to go out to pasture Pelosi! Take Obama and Hairball Harry with you!

Aww, I might cry.  Was she born so stupid, or did she have to work on it? 

Nancy.....it just ASTOUNDS me that someone like you managed to get into a government power position like.............you're such a friggin' airhead---CLEARLY you paid for the position, or just give an unlimited number of blowjobs. You're an embarrassment for women.

She misses the perks.

Marilyn, that picture does that PIG too much justice! Funny, though.....

Gohmert: Dems Will Drag Out Impeachment — Try To Get ‘Best Socialist’ Nominated For President

During an appearance on Huntsville, AL radio’s WVNN on Thursday, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) offered his best assessment of what House Democrats were trying to accomplish with their impeachment efforts.

Gohmert told WVNN’s “The Jeff Poor Show” impeachment could tie up the Democratic Party’s presidential campaign efforts but predicted Democrats would use the occasion to nominate “the best socialist” they can.

“They would lose in the Senate,” Gohmert said on impeachment. “And besides that, the entire time it was on trial in the Senate, the Democrats who are running for president wouldn’t be allowed to campaign. That’s in the Constitution. They wouldn’t be able to campaign. I just can’t imagine them wanting to do that because if they send it to the Senate, they have now perfectly set up the scenario of 1996, where they will reassure Donald Trump is reelected as president. They don’t want to do that. They’re probably going to drag this thing out as long as they possibly can … through Iowa, through primaries — try to get the best socialist they can to be nominated.”

“Then just end up and say, ‘Now we’re close enough to the general election. We’ve thrown mud at the president through the House,’” he continued. “What they’re really doing — they’re using taxpayer funds to campaign against Trump. That’s all this is — a campaign fund that taxpayers are paying for in order to try to throw mud at the president. I’ll be surprised if they have that vote, but I can’t imagine they want to set up this president for reelection by having a trial in the Senate where they lose.”
