Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi ripped her Republican colleagues in a bizarre rant Thursday; saying the GOP is only interested in helping businesses at the expense of America’s children.
“If they go to school, only if school is open will we put federal dollars, no. We have on authority, and documents, virtual, actual, and hybrid education, is within range or cost. Why should you demand our children take risk in communities of high risk…” ranted Pelosi. “Millions of children are food insecure. How could they possibly?”

What's Wrong With Nancy? Pelosi Goes on Troubling Rant, Scares Reporters
Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi held a bizarre, meandering press conference on Thursday, telling confused reporters that she understands “Wall Street” and that “the currency of the realm” is votes.
The House Minority Leader was speaking with journalists during her weekly address when she launched into her puzzling speech, veering wildly between issues such as DACA, community health centers, Wall Street, the debt ceiling, and Medicare.
“Is this more on the subject than you want to know? Stop me if it is, ok?” Pelosi asked the audience.
“As an appropriator, that’s the life I live. Intelligence and appropriations, you see, that’s my focus,” she stated. “The impression was given to us that we voted to lift the debt ceiling many times, many of us. We were kind of lectured on the importance of lifting the debt ceiling to the markets, and we know that. Yes, we know that. We’ve been lifting the debt ceiling, so if you have the votes.”
“Wall street? It’s wall street,” a confused Pelosi added. “Here the currency of the realm is the vote. You have the votes, no discussion necessary, you don’t have the votes, three months, so that’s how we got to that.”
“But, um, we have to get it passed,” said Nancy. “We have the omnibus bills, all the appropriation bills […] we have community health centers, we have extenders for Medicare, we have many items on the agenda.”
“So that is how that went,” 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.
Read the full report at The Hill.
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.
