In a tweet on Tuesday, Bishop Rick Stika of Knoxville said “It really confuses me that both Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi time and time again state that they are faithful Catholics and yet promote unlimited abortion as well as deny so many of the teachings of our faith,” he added that “Nancy stated that she will no longer support the Hyde Amendment.”
The Catholic Church considers abortion (murder) such a grave evil, in fact, that it is one of the very few sins punishable by immediate and automatic excommunication.
However, LGBT Jesuit Father James Martin rushed to the defense of Biden and Pelosi, insisting that a bishop has no right to question the “personal faith” of Catholic politicians.
Father Martin also said that the bishop’s characterization of the two Democrats was inaccurate, suggesting that the only point on which Biden and Pelosi dissent from Catholic teaching is the matter of abortion.
Three contractors are bidding to fix a broken fence at Nancy Pelosi’s house. One is from Chicago, another is from Tennessee, and the third is from Minnesota. All three go with a California official to examine the fence.
The Minnesota contractor takes out a tape measure and does some measuring, then works some figures with a pencil. “Well,” he says, “I figure the job will run about $900. $400 for materials, $400 for my crew, and $100 profit for me.”
The Tennessee contractor also does some measuring and figuring, then says, “I can do this job for $700. $300 for materials, $300 for my crew, and $100 profit for me.”
The Chicago contractor doesn’t measure or figure, but leans over to the White House official and whispers, “$2,700.”
The official, incredulous, says, “You didn’t even measure like the other guys! How did you come up with such a high figure?”
The Chicago contractor whispers back, “$1000 for me, $1000 for you, and we hire the guy from Tennessee to fix the fence.”
“Done!” replies the government official.
And that, my friends, is how stimulus spending works.
A video shared by President Trump showing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) tearing apart the State of the Union address has amassed over 18 million views on social media despite her allies’ efforts to convince platforms to remove it.
The video, posted by the president last week, shows Pelosi tearing up the State of the Union address and highlights memorable moments of the speech, such as Trump honoring 100-year-old Tuskegee Airman Gen. Charles McGee. It has now surpassed 11 million views on Twitter, 3.1 million views on Facebook, and 4.1 million views on Instagram:
Karena Feng details Paul Pelosi Jr.’s alleged fraud and her fight to get her children back
The former girlfriend of Nancy Pelosi’s son, Paul Pelosi Jr., is suing him over alleged fraud regarding her property, and spoke exclusively to National File about the nature of their relationship.
Karena Feng, a Taiwan-born woman living in San Francisco, alleges that Paul Pelosi Jr. was “abusive” to her, that he forced her to have an abortion by threatening her life, that he conducted foreign business while claiming to be a representative of Nancy Pelosi, and that he engineered Child Protective Services’ seizure of Feng’s four children. Feng supports her claims with text messages and documents presented in this article below.
Why isn’t (R) Kevin McCarthy, house minority leader pushing to impeach Nancy Pelosi?
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s son Paul Pelosi Jr. visited Ukraine in 2017 to meet with government officials in connection to a business initiative. Now, unearthed records reveal that Paul Pelosi Jr. was an executive of a gas industry company that did business in Ukraine – and his mother Nancy Pelosi was featured in one of the company’s promotional videos.
Journalist Patrick Howley broke the story Thursday:
Documents from the United States Air Force (USAF) reveal that Nancy Pelosi abused her position to fly family members for free in government aircraft.

The state’s strategy of tension relies upon a fear of threat to control people.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has declined to call upon Rep. Tony Cardenas (D-CA) to resign after he was sued for allegedly molesting a teenage girl whom he allegedly drugged in 2007.
Instead, Pelosi decided to refer Cardenas to the House Ethics Committee for investigation.
Late last week, Pelosi released a statement in which she indicated that she had spoken with Cardenas, and that he had “appropriately asked us to withhold judgment until there is a full investigation of the facts.”
Last year, Pelosi was among those Democratic leaders demanding that Roy Moore, the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in Alabama, withdraw “We’re talking about a child molester,” Pelosi told NBC News’ Chuck Todd on Meet the Press on November 27.
Pelosi declared that there would now be “zero tolerance” for sexual misconduct in Congress: “Women have spoken out. Their concerns will be addressed in a way that I think will give comfort, as well as end this behavior. … Because you know what? It’s disgusting, it’s repulsive, and it has to be zero tolerance.”
At the time, Pelosi also said there should also be “due process” for Rep. John Conyers (D-MI), who was soon forced to retire over allegations of sexual misconduct.
Like Moore, Cardenas denies the claims against him. His lawyer attacked the woman who sued him — identified only as “Jane Doe” — as “the daughter of a disgruntled former employee and [she] may be the victim of manipulation,” as quoted by Politico.

After California’s then-Attorney General Kamala D. Harris announced felony pimping charges last year against the two owners of Backpage.com — a classified-ad website that is a hub for sex trafficking and prostitution, one of the men cut a $10,000 check to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s super PAC.
The uproar over sexual harassment that began with the Harvey Weinstein scandal has intensified the scrutiny of political contributions linked to Backpage, which law enforcement officials say is the chief platform for activities far worse than harassment, including sexual slavery and child prostitution.
Pelosi isn’t the only Democrat struggling to deal with the piles of cash that Backpage’s owners spread around to candidates and state Democratic parties over the years.
Even Ms. Harris, a California Democrat who is now a U.S. senator, ducked the issue. Her office wouldn’t respond to repeated emails about Backpage money going to House Majority PAC and other Democratic organizations.
Since 2010, the owners and their wives have shoveled about $99,000 to candidates and about $95,000 to Democratic parties in Arizona, Colorado and New Mexico, according to federal campaign finance data collected by the Center for Responsive Politics.
Bowing to mounting pressure, including a bipartisan Senate investigation that found the owners knowingly sold ads to pimps who coerced minors into prostitution, Backpage in January closed down its adult services sections.
The websites, however, continue to be marketplaces for the sex trade.
Detroit police last week arrested two men who were using Backpage to run a sex trafficking ring after an underage girl told police she was brought to the city and put to work as a prostitute, with “dates” arranged on the website.
In June, a Chicago man was arrested after using Backpage to sell a 16-year-old girl who was eventually killed by a client.
Such stories of prostitution and sex trafficking linked to Backpage are relatively commonplace across the country.
The founders and controlling shareholders of Backpage, Michael Lacey and James Larkin, and Backpage executives and shareholders John Brunst and Scott Spear, have made fortunes from the websites.
In California alone, Backpage rakes in about $2.5 million per month, according to charging documents in the Golden State.
Mr. Larkin made the contribution to the House Majority PAC in October 2016, a week after he and Mr. Lacey were charged in California. A judge, citing federal law that shields internet sites from most liability, dropped the pimping charge in August. Related money laundering charges are proceeding against the men.
Legislation spearheaded by Sen. Rob Portman, Ohio Republican, would tighten federal law to hold accountable websites such as Backpage that host thinly disguised ads for commercial sex and child prostitution. The bill is expected to easily pass the Senate early next year.
There is still the question of what to do about the Backpage money.
Asked about the contribution last week, House Majority PAC Executive Director Charlie Kelly said the money already had been spent.
“The contribution from James Larkin was received and spent during the 2016 election cycle. The allegations against Larkin are reprehensible, and HMP will not accept any future contributions from Larkin or his associates at Backpage.com,” he said in a statement to The Washington Times.
An aide to Pelosi said she “had no role in this contribution, [and] she did not solicit this donation.”
The lion’s share of the contributions to state parties since 2010 went to the Colorado Democratic Party, despite the Backpage owners all residing in Arizona. They handed over a total of $70,000 to the Colorado party. All the donations were made in 2014.
They gave $15,000 to the New Mexico Democratic Party in 2014.
Mr. Larkin last year made a single $10,000 contribution to the Arizona Democratic Party, according to federal campaign records.
An official at the Colorado Democratic Party said they were looking into the matter, but the party has been dodging questions about the tainted contributions since at least April.
The Arizona and New Mexico parties did not respond to questions about their plans for the Backpage money.
The Arizona Democratic Party has been under increasing pressure from its Republican counterpart to return the money or donate it to an appropriate charity.
Earlier this year, an Arizona Democratic Party official gave The Arizona Republic the same explanation now used by Pelosi’s super PAC: “The money had already been spent.”
Arizona Republican Party spokesman Torunn Sinclair said the excuse was “absurd and disgusting.”
“They obviously have the cash to return this dirty money; they just don’t want to return it,” she said. “Arizona Democrats, including [Congress members] Kyrsten Sinema, Tom O’Halleran and Ann Kirkpatrick, need to step up to the plate and tell them to donate the money.”
The Congress members also struggled to address the Backpage money in their campaign coffers.
Ms. Kirkpatrick, who federal records show pocketed at least $16,000 since 2010, finally rid herself of it in September with a donation to the Arizona Coalition to End Sexual and Domestic Violence.
Mr. O’Halleran also disposed of roughly $8,100.
Ms. Sinema received the most Backpage money by far. Federal campaign records show that she took in $34,400 from the Backpage owners and their wives since 2010.
Getting rid of it wasn’t easy.
Under pressure to return the money, Ms. Sinema in April attempted to donated $10,000 to Friends of Public Radio Arizona. But the nonprofit balked at the gift of dirty money. Ms. Sinema ultimately sent all the Backpage-linked donations to the Arizona Coalition to End Sexual and Domestic Violence.
The lawmakers, however, have resisted putting public pressure on the Arizona Democratic Party to do the same.
Ms. Sinema dodged the question Thursday on Capitol Hill.
“Why don’t you call my office to get an appointment? I’m on my way to the train station right now. Have a great weekend,” she said.
Her office did not respond to requests for an appointment or comment about the state party keeping the Backpage money.
