Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi confused hundreds of attendees in San Francisco Friday; telling a packed audience that Democrats must be ready to “throw a punch” at Republicans “for the children.”
“For them, it’s about money. They’ll put up any amount of money to protect their investments in degrading the environment, guns, and all that. We’ve got to be ready to take a punch, therefore, you have to be ready to throw a punch – for the children. We’ll throw a punch for the children. So, are we ready to win?” asked Pelosi.

Pelosi slammed Israel’s decision to block Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar this week; calling the move “beneath the dignity” of the world’s only Jewish State.
“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said that both President Trump and the Israeli government debased their offices when they pushed back on plans by two freshman congresswomen critical of Israel to visit the Mideast ally,” reports Fox News.
“She was responding to news that Israel had heeded Trump’s call to refuse Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., entry based on their past statements, which some critics have deemed anti-Israel and anti-Semitic,” adds Fox.
“Israel’s denial of entry to Congresswomen Tlaib and Omar is a sign of weakness, and beneath the dignity of the great state of Israel,” said a press release from Pelosi’s office.
“Denying entry to members of the United States Congress is a sign of weakness, not strength,” echoed Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.
“We won’t allow those who deny our right to exist in this world to enter Israel. In principle, this is a very justified decision,” Israel’s deputy foreign minister said after announcing their decision.
'NO BIG DEAL': Pelosi Refuses to Condemn Colleague Who Called Trump ‘Motherf***er’
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi refused to condemn a fellow Democrat who viciously called President Trump a ‘motherf***er’ just hours after being sworn in; saying “I’m not in the censorship business.”
Pelosi was asked to comment on Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s fiery speech at an event hosted by MoveOn.org Thursday night; telling a crowd of supporters the Democrats are “going to impeach that motherf***er!”
“I probably have a generational reaction to it,” Pelosi said. “But in any event, I’m not in the censorship business. I don’t like that language, I wouldn’t use that language. I don’t … establish any language standards for my colleagues, but I don’t think it’s anything worse than what the president has said.”
“Generationally, that would not be language I would use, but nonetheless, I don’t think we should make a big deal of it,” she added.

ANOTHER CONSPIRACY? Pelosi Says Trump Using Census to ‘Make America White Again’
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi found another anti-Trump conspiracy theory to promote this week; suggesting the White House is attempting to use the United States Census to “Make America White Again.”
Pelosi was speaking with reporters when she was asked to comment on the President’s inclusion of a citizenship question in the upcoming survey.
“This is about keeping — you know his hat — make America white again,” Pelosi said; referring to the President’s iconic ‘Make America Great Again’ or ‘MAGA’ hat.
“They want to make sure that people, certain people, are counted. It’s really disgraceful. And it’s not what our founders had in mind,” Pelosi said. “What they want to do is put a chilling effect so certain populations will not answer the form.”
The President is considering issuing an executive order to include the question after it was struck down by the Supreme Court in recent weeks.

Original Story: Published June 27, 2019
The Supreme Court ruled against the Trump administration Thursday morning; saying the White House’s case to include a “citizenship question” in the upcoming US Census failed to meet the necessary requirements.
“The Supreme Court found Thursday that the Trump administration did not give an adequate reason for adding a citizenship question to the 2020 census,” reports the Hill. “The move is a surprise win for advocates who opposed the question’s addition, arguing it will lead to an inaccurate population count. The administration had argued the question was needed to enforce the Voting Rights Act.”
The judges sent the matter back to the Commerce Department, who must now provide another justification for including the controversial topic.
Critics of the question say it will dissuade legal immigrants and others from taking part in the census process, while advocates say it will better provide an accurate depiction of the country’s 327 million residents.
Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the court’s liberal wing in making the ruling.
