House Speaker Nancy Pelosi responded with impatience Wednesday to a reporter who asked about the chances of a debt limit extension passing in the Senate.
On Wednesday at Capitol Hill, a reporter asked Pelosi about the possibility of “delaying the [House] vote tomorrow” on the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill.
“When I say we’ll have the vote tomorrow, we’ll have the vote,” Pelosi said, adding to the reporter, “I’m not calling you a troublemaker, but instigator over here. Working for the will of the American people has clearly stated what the prerogatives are of the speaker of the House.”

It’s telling that Democrats have free reign to snap at reporters at will – and the cringing lapdogs of the media won’t call them out on it.
But if a conservative so much as criticizes the media, pundits across the land fire up their dire predictions about “imprisoning journalists.” It’s a massive shell game, and it needs to stop.
In Pelosi’s case, she’s upset at her failure to corral Joe Manchin and Kristin Sinema, and she’s taking it out on the press. Maybe she shouldn’t have screwed up the bill in the first place?

Mark Milley is the most dangerous man in America. He’s powerful, incompetent and politically ambitious. Great piece, here’s the money quote: “Four-star General Mark A. Milley, 20th chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and highest-ranking officer in the United States Armed Forces, is a walking answer to the unasked question, “What if Jim Mattis were fat and dumb?””
Covidianism is officially a cult, according to this fantastic piece from the Federalist. “It’s all very weird and creepy, and it’s going to only get weirder and creepier the longer the strangely millions of people terrified out of their wits about COVID continue like this.”
Don’t be fooled by all the hoopla about solar and wind. Fossil fuels, particularly natural gas, are the future of energy in the United States.
