As Dem Revolt Against Nancy Pelosi Grows, She Blames . . . NBC

As Dem Revolt Against Nancy Pelosi Grows, She Blames . . . NBC

“I know NBC has been on a jag, this is one of their priorities to undermine my prospects as speaker”

Former House Speaker and current House minority leader Nancy Pelosi may have believed him back in 2013 when then-President Obama assured the nation that Pelosi will again be speaker.  The 2014 midterms came and went, and then the 2016 presidential election, and still Pelosi does not hold the Speaker’s gavel.

And it looks like she may not hold it again, even if the Democrats manage to take back the House this November.  While Obama is among the few Democrat voices supporting Pelosi for Speaker these days, she has to be a bit worried that so many Democrat candidates are moving on and have been doing so for some time.

Fox News reported in July:

The list of Democrats expressing frustration with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has been growing longer in recent weeks, but don’t expect to see former President Barack Obama’s name on it.

At a party fundraising event Friday afternoon in Northern California, Obama spoke highly of Pelosi – and even predicted that she will return to the job of House speaker after November’s midterm elections.

“I think everybody knows how much I love Nancy Pelosi,” Obama told the gathering at a home in affluent Atherton, Politico reported.

“Nancy, I believe, is one of the greatest speakers we ever had, and will once again be one of the greatest speakers we ever have after we get through this cycle,” he continued. “And there’s not much I could have gotten done without having Nancy there alongside of me every step of the way.”

Meanwhile, Democrat candidates for the House are fleeing from her in droves.

Fox News reports:

Democratic congressional candidates are revolting against Nancy Pelosi in even bigger numbers, amid fears that her grip on power could hurt the party’s chances in the midterms and hold back its next generation of leaders.

The list of candidates refusing to support the California Democrat for speaker — or refusing to state their position — has steadily grown, though estimates vary.

The Washington Post counts at least 27 Democratic House candidates who won’t commit support.

Another count published by NBC News says over 50 Democratic candidates and incumbents would not support Pelosi for speaker —should the party take back the 23-seat majority from Republicans.

The disparity between the NBC numbers and those of other outlets has apparently caught Pelosi’s eye.  In addition to this instance, NBC News does have quite a few hit pieces on Pelosi that stand out from the approach other outlets are taking.  So much so, that she’s now claiming that NBC is out to get her.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) said on Sunday that one of the priorities of NBC is to undermine her prospects to be speaker of the House again.

Washington Post columnist Jonathan Capehart, who filled in for anchor Joy Reid on NBC’s sister network MSNBC, asked Pelosi whether she would consider allowing another Democrat to take over as the leader in the House. She responded by going straight at NBC’s journalistic practices.

“First of all, I know NBC has been on a jag, this is one of their priorities to undermine my prospects as speaker,” Pelosi said.

In no way do I think it appropriate to pause here for a moment of schadenfreude.  After all, I would never find it amusing, or fitting, that Pelosi is finally feeling the bite of the beast she’s fed for so long.

There are, of course, plenty of reasons for Democrats to want new leadership in the House, so it’s unlikely that it’s simply NBC being “on a jag” that is undermining her prospects as speaker.

Mark Steyn did a great segment about this on Friday’s Tucker Carlson show.

Pelosi AND Antifa turn on NBC the same day?

Did “Old-Nan” just reveal that the DNC is holding the reigns of the fascist pigs?

It’s a stretch, but I did get a Game of Thrones reference in.

From the end of the video: “people hate Trump so much that they’re forgetting [the rule of law].”

Who says they aren’t using Trump hatred as a pretext to permanently change the law to their liking?

Anyone have the Costa link where he rants about Pelosi’s talks making life threatening to “jounralists”?
Should be out aaaany day now….

Damn NBC and their right-wing agenda…

Pass this on to everyone you know.
If in your presence a candidate says they will not vote for Nancy Pelosi as Speaker, then force them to swear that they will never ever under any circumstances vote for Nancy Pelosi for Speaker.

We all know the score. When the Dems pick their candidate, people will vote against her, but then when they vote for Speaker and it is between her and a Republican they will say they had no choice.

“First of all, I know NBC has been on a jag, this is one of their priorities to undermine my prospects as speaker,”

Translation: When the Hell did you guys start telling your viewers the truth about me?

The journolistic noise makes it difficult to discern the signal. There was a similar problem of modulation during the previous administration but without a different coding scheme.

I blame Hillary and the failure of the Democratic Party to clean house after Hillary lost.

It’s time for a generational change in the Democratic (and Republican) Party and most Democrats know it.

    “I blame Hillary …” It doesn’t matter what you append to that phrase, it will be correct. She is the bane of the Democrats. Keep up the good work Hill!

    The problem is that the newer generation of Democrats is even further to the left than the current generation. I think the Democrats understand this, and are terrified. They know that socialism does have an appeal to the young (and stupid), but it also drives off the more mainstream Democrats. So they’re left with the problem of appealing to the far-left idiots while still appealing to mainstream Americans.

    And they can’t figure out how to do that.

      Plus the “mainstream” Democrats running things are old, old, old. As you pointed out a lot of the young blood they need are leaning towards the Socialist side. The Dems are probably also worried that right now they have no young (or youngish) “rock star” candidate to take on Trump.

Nauseating, isn’t she.

Speaking of ‘revolt,’ dump facebook:

She’s senile and pathetic. Couldn’t the dems give her some sort of Nerf gavel and tell her she’s important again?

Nancy, Nancy, Nancy! You know we all love you–each and every one of us. Keep all that good stuff coming our way. And when you die, as die we all must, well have your supporters stuff you full of botox. They can prop you up in your chair in the House and no one will notice you are gone.

The Media Are Hiding Their Knowledge and Duplicity – Buzzfeed, WaPo and New York Times Had Unredacted FISA Application For Over A Year…

Oddly enough, she is not wrong. NBC has doubled down on propaganda, pure lies and attempting to take down the leadership of both parties. The news tonight was almost unwatchable, with Omarosa treated as if she were a witness to the nonsense she is feeding the MSM.

    She does appear to be correct about NBC; I linked to some of their articles about / against her. I really want to care, but somehow I don’t. 😛

    The regressive left has forgotten one of the primary lessons all leftists should have learned from history: they turn on their own first, and only then do they go after the enemies they deem less-dangerous, i.e. those who oppose them on actual principle and on ideological grounds. The people who start and initially lead these “revolutions” are always taken out first by the uber-fringe “winner.”

“I think everybody knows how much I love Nancy Pelosi,” Obama told the gathering at a home in affluent Atherton”

She’s toast.

That poor old millionairess, unfairly persecuted by NBC. Whoever will defend the botox maiden from her liberal enemies?

I suspect Pelosi is right to blame NBC, and I worry for the future now that the media are openly political players.

DC knows how to swallow people whole, and Rep. Pelosi is a past master at it. One underestimates Nancy Pelosi at their peril.

Nancy should retire to her native SF and start a company raising gerbils … she’d make a fortune.

When can we expect Jim Acosta’s phony tantrum over this?
