Several Democratic congressional candidates are reportedly backing away from supporting House Minority Leader Sen. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), a and attacking her hoping that it will help their chances of winning at the polls. “While I respect Leader Pelosi’s years of advocacy on behalf of California and the Democratic Party, it’s time for new leadership,” Gil Cisneros, who is running for the soon-to-be-retired seat of Rep. Ed Royce (R-CA), said in a statement as to his decision not to support Pelosi if his party takes back the House and she runs for speaker. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Democrat Andrew Janz, who is running against GOP Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Tulare), has also stated he would not support Pelosi. “I think it’s time for a new generation of leaders to go to Washington, and this is with respect to both Democrats and Republicans,” Janz said. “I think the country, and my district in particular, is hungry for change.” According to an NBC/Wall Street Journal poll released earlier this month, 45 percent of registered voters were less likely to back a congressional candidate who wants to make Pelosi speaker. That same poll reportedly found just 21 percent said they would be more likely to

On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher responded to the controversy over his earlier comments that a recession would be worth going through if it undermined President Trump’s popularity by stating his critics should “take a course in perspective.” He argued, “A recession is a survivable event, what Trump is doing to this country is not.” Maher said, “[A]nyone who went apeshit in the last two weeks because I said going through a recession would be worth it if it undermined Trump’s popularity has to enroll in college and take a course in perspective. A recession is a survivable event, what Trump is doing to this country is not. Democracy is about to go the way of the dinosaurs because we’ve been taken over by a dodo bird.” He added, “Another recession is coming, not because I’m rooting for it, because someone passed a giant tax giveaway to the rich that added trillions to the debt and started a trade war for no reason and deliberately sabotaged the Affordable Care Act and rolled back the rules for banks so they can once again gamble with our money. Those are actual policies, from men with real power, as opposed

These mothers, these mothers have given testimony, if you will, have given the stories, have shared their stories, their personal stories that are a story of a human rights abuse being committed by the United States government. And we are so much better than this and what we have got to do is fight against this. This is contrary to all of the principles that we hold dear.” She continued, “That is a prison. I am a career prosecutor; I have visited many prisons and jails. That is a prison.” She added, “These mothers that I spoke with, they think that they’re alone. We need to remind them and everyone else that they are not alone and that we all stand with them.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN

Yet, even in this dark hour, we are witnessing an outpouring of moral conviction, civic engagement, and lasting commitment to stand up for the most vulnerable among us. In fact, it was because of the outcry from every corner of our country, and, indeed, from around the world, that the Trump administration was finally forced to take at least a step toward ending family separation.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett

Friday on the floor of the House of Representatives, Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) played audio of crying immigrant children who were separated from their families despite being instructed to stop. Lieu said, “If the Statue of Liberty could cry, she would be crying today. As I stand here, there are 2,300 kids that have been ripped away from their parents by our government and are in detention facilities across America. America was a country founded by people fleeing from persecution. We are a land of immigrants. President Ronald Reagan called us that shining city upon the hill.

He added, “Click-bait became the number one currency in the American media and it still is to this day. … [A]ll of it originates from out of northern California and Silicon Valley and San Francisco, and so there’s a political bent to northern California and those values are being shoved down the American media’s throat.

Friday on Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” Rep.

Jordan said, “If they don’t comply by today, the speaker has been clear and told me this personally: Our resolution that Mr. Meadows, I and others introduced two weeks ago, which says the full House will go on record and tells the Department of Justice if you don’t give us what we have within a certain time period, we’ll move to the next step. The resolution comes first. If Rosenstein doesn’t comply, then it’s contempt. And then we’re prepared to file articles of impeachment against Mr. Rosenstein – if he doesn’t give the House of Representatives, if he doesn’t give the Congress, a separate and equal branch of government, to give us the documents, to get answers for you and the press and, more importantly, the American people. It’s that basic, and we’re at the end of the line.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN

It has to be about who we are. If we are working towards November, we can no longer say Trump is the bad guy. If you vote for Trump, you’re the bad guy. If you vote for Trump, you are ripping children from parents’ arms. The mistake that we’ve made in the past is, ‘Look at that bad guy over there, look at that bad guy.’ What the Democrats have to do is make the next election a referendum on not who Trump is, but who you are. That’s the big difference. You can no longer now as a voter — because it’s not about taxes, it’s not even about some abstract term of immigration or nationalism.” He added, “If you vote for Trump then you, the voter, you, not Donald Trump, are standing at the border, like Nazis, going ‘you here, you here.’ And I think we now have to flip it.
