A Few of Nancy Pelosi’s ‘Tahitian Pearls’ of Wisdom

Could it be that Nancy Pelosi’s $20,000 Tahitian pearls were too tight? Either that, or the House Minority Leader had her oxygen cut off by the ponytail of surgeon-stretched skin that she hides under her coif constricting the blood flow to her brain.

Clearly, since being demoted the San Francisco Grandma must miss swinging around her huge gavel. Therefore, every time she opens her yapper she exploits the opportunity and proceeds to smack America over the head with a sledgehammer of stupidity.

Still, whenever the former Speaker bares her dentures, one does learn a lot.  This time while pitching bills that would keep a bankrupt government in the job of subsidizing student loans and federal support for jobs, what Nancy had to say certainly proved that when it comes to intellect, Mrs. Pelosi is what’s in need of a subsidy.

On her latest foray into farcicality, Ms. Nancy said this:  “To some of us the role of government is about doing things for the American people to help them reach fulfillment.”  Reach fulfillment?

Nancy saying stupid stuff is not news to anyone who’s ever heard her speak. Remember when Nancy spoke at the Asian American and Pacific Islanders Summit on Capitol Hill in 2010?  That was when the former Speaker informed the ethnically Asian group that she viewed Obamacare as an “entrepreneurial bill.”

Pelosi said the ‘Unaffordable We Don’t Care Act’ was:

…a bill that says to someone, if you want to be creative and be a musician or whatever, you can leave your work, focus on your talent, your skill, your passion, your aspirations because you will have health care.

In other words, go strum your guitar, join a dance troupe, and spend a couple of years learning to juggle, because the government will cover your sorry ass.

And Ms. Pelosi didn’t stop with her “fulfillment” comments either. She also complained that while Democrats push for more spending to create jobs, Republicans are seeking restrict abortions beyond 20 weeks.

Restricting late-term abortion must really bother Nancy, because mentioning it in the same breath as job creation reveals that in her quest for “fulfillment’ she’s really just making sure fiends like Leroy Carhart and James Scott Prendergraft have plenty of work.

Devout Catholic mantilla-wearing, Holy Communion-receiving abortion advocate Nancy Pelosi also pointed out that asking questions about late-term abortion indicated that the reporter doing the asking had an “agenda” and was “savoring” asking a question about a subject Mrs. Pelosi considers “sacred ground.”

Nancy explained it this way: “For [the Republicans] to decide to disrespect a judgment a woman makes about her reproductive health is reprehensible.”

In other words, in Grandma Nancy’s world, slaughtering unborn babies right up until they’re actually exiting the womb is what she defines as “judgment…about reproductive health.”  But then again, this is the same woman who defined Obamacare as “entrepreneurial” and bankrupting the American economy as “fulfillment.”

So there you have it. Democrats let Nancy Pelosi out of her pen to promote government spending and what Americans got was a double dose of geriatric dementia.

To sum up, Nancy Pelosi advocated for government taking and spending taxpayers’ hard-earned money on frivolities she defines as “fulfillment” and defined late-term abortion as “sacred ground.”

Nancy Pelosi Takes a Stand for Abortion

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca) is a modern-day version of the charlatans Jesus was referring to when He said, “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside is full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean. In the same way, on the outside you appear to people as righteous but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness.”

Nancy Patricia D’Alesandro Pelosi prides herself on being a devout follower of Catholicism, but don’t let that fancy lace mantilla fool you. Apparently, to senior citizen/former Catholic schoolgirl Nancy Pelosi, church doctrine is similar to sagging skin; if it gets in the way, she trims it off and tosses it aside.

One time, when speaking about how the health care law impacts abortion, Nancy said, “[Those who disagree] may not like the language, but the truth is what I said. I’m a devout Catholic and I honor my faith and love it. . .but they have this conscience thing [that puts women at risk.]”

Resplendent in her rosary bead-inspired signature $20,000 – $80,000 Tahitian pearls at a recent press conference and “knowing more about having babies than the pope,” Nancy was asked by a Catholic how she feels, as a Catholic, about the government issuing a regulation that virtually forces “Catholic individuals and institutions to act against their conscience.”

Visibly annoyed, Nancy Pelosi responded by saying, “Is this a speech or do we have a question disguised as speech?” Too bad Nancy wasn’t asked a more entertaining question, like “are you really a fashionable middle-aged woman or just an elderly grandmother disguised as a fashionable middle-aged woman?”

Referring to the government’s overreach into religious sensibility, the anonymous questioner informed the former speaker that “We cannot and will not comply with this law” – a  law that “[w]ill require all healthcare plans to cover sterilization and all FDA-approved contraceptives including those that induce abortions.” This will force “Catholic individuals and institutions to act against their conscience.”

The unidentified voice pressed the visibly peeved Pelosi further with the challenge, “Will you stand with your fellow Catholics in opposing this law?” Translation:  Nancy, are you going to behave like a Catholic, or remain a loyal deaconess lovingly attending the votives at the Saline, Scalpel and Suction Shrine located on the left side of the First Church of Liberalism?

With a knuckle to the nose to brush away an annoyed sniffle, Ms. Pelosi, who has professed a “deep love for the Catholic Church” (just not its tenets), looking a tad uncomfortable, refused to make eye contact with the questioner.

Knowing full well that church leaders and parishioners are appalled at such an assault on religious freedom, Nancy, who is in so much denial she likely still hasn’t applied for AARP and has her Botox provider on speed dial, responded in an ecumenical, all-inclusive way by saying “I’m going to stand with my fellow Catholics in supporting the administration on this.” Huh?!

Cave just this once, Grandma, and put on those reading glasses – Catholics are outraged!

Sounding like a confused dementia patient, after saying that Catholics who don’t support sterilization, birth control, and abortion would support the mandate that enforces all three, without identifying who “they” are Pelosi said, “I think it was a very courageous decision that they made and I support it.”

So there you have it; Nancy Pelosi defines courage as the federal government’s brave decision to dominate religious institutions, and in so doing, in defiance of dogma, conscience, and God Himself, has issued a command to pro-life Christians to genuflect before the god of female reproductive rights.

Not only is Ms. Pelosi supportive of such “courageous” edicts, she has decided to “stand.” However, her standing will not be with Catholics: “House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) vowed today that she will join with the Obama administration in standing up against the Catholic church in defending a new regulation that will require Catholic individuals to buy, and Catholic institutions to provide, health insurance plans that cover sterilizations and artificial contraceptives, including those that induce abortions.”

It appears that Barack Obama and proud catechist Nancy Pelosi have chosen the Catholic Church for their pilot study in government infringement upon the First Amendment right to free exercise of religion; to hell with Church teaching, to hell with personal principles, to hell with the notion of right and wrong, and most importantly, to hell with the document that defends all our rights, the United States Constitution.

And to prove how committed she is to the cause, staunch Catholic Nancy Pelosi is willing to take up pew space at Saints Peter and Paul Church in San Francisco and defiantly continue to receive communion while courageously supporting a government edict that sanctions murder.

Did Cruising with Callista Doom Newt’s Campaign?

Originally posted at American Thinker

This week America found out 16 members of presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich’s campaign staff up and quit! When hearing about the mass exodus, the immediate thought that came to mind was: “Callista!” Why? Because ever since Newt Gingrich snagged himself a wife 22 years his junior, “he’s been acting like a lovesick school boy.”

In case you’ve never seen Callista, although 17 years Christie Brinkley’s junior the impeccably dressed Mrs. Gingrich could pass for an tightly wound version of the super model’s mother.

Callista Gingrich certainly looks prim and proper and considers herself a “devoted Catholic.”  In fact, Mrs. Gingrich even sings in “the Choir of the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, DC.”  Yet, to this day it’s still hard to get past the fact that when not singing Ave Maria, Callista apparently had little problem dating the husband of a woman deep in the throes of MS.

After a quarter century and a two-part documentary entitled “Recovering God in America,” the couple now claim that while Newt was vilifying Bill Clinton for immorality and leading the charge for his impeachment, their adulterous relationship merely had a “non-traditional start” – a start that, at the time, ambushed Newt’s promising political career.

With her “double strand pearls” neatly in place, Callista dated and married Newt Gingrich, and while always “adamant about going to Mass,” not that it’s a bad thing, convinced the former Speaker of the House to convert from a lifelong Southern Baptist into a born-again Catholic. French horn player Callista even managed to wangle her way into the lofty position of “President” of Gingrich Productions.

Callista’s demeanor is indicative of a woman whose shoeboxes are probably well organized.   Now we come to find out that her jewelry drawer is full of trinkets bestowed upon her by her “fiscally conservative” senior citizen lover/husband Newt.  According to financial disclosures filed with the Clerk of the House of Representatives, “In 2005 and 2006, the former House speaker turned presidential candidate carried as much as $500,000 in debt to the premier jewelry company.”

Evidently, the little woman is doing one helluva bang-up job over there at Gingrich Productions.

Callista must have been worth the losses Gingrich’s political career sustained, because for years now the twice-divorced, thrice-married Newt Gingrich hasn’t been able to complete a single sentence without mentioning Callista’s name.  Every other word out of the former House speaker’s mouth is “Callista and I” this and “Callista and I” that.

Gingrich’s adulterous relationship reduced the once powerful speaker from a potential presidential contender into an infatuated doughboy being led around by a woman with very stiff bleached blonde hair.  The only person in Mrs. Gingrich’s league is tomcat Rudy Giuliani’s wife, nurse Judy, a woman with a nonstop grin and wide-eyed stare rivaled only by Callista’s.

One thing’s for sure – after this week, it seems Callista hostessing White House state dinners is no longer a threat. The peroxided paramour who helped administer the death blow to Newt Gingrich’s political aspirations in the 1990’s, after all these years of trying to remediate his sullied reputation, has again managed to put an end to a potential bid for the White House. Only this time it’s over a Mediterranean cruise.

Political consultant Rich Galen, who worked for Mr. Gingrich in the 1990’s, said “We have all had to deal with campaign spouses, whether male or female. But in this case it appears that Speaker Gingrich may have been a lot more solicitous to his wife’s desires and her interventions in the campaign than most candidates are.”  Ya think?

Fred Barnes, editor of the Weekly Standard, claims Callista “won the argument” with campaign managers about whether or not the couple should take the voyage on board the Seabourn Odyssey. So this time, Callista managed to shipwreck Newt’s presidential bid over a cruise to Greece and Turkey. Newt’s decision to submit to Callista “was the last straw for his campaign team,” most of whom decided to take a permanent vacation not with, but from, Mr. and Mrs. Gingrich.

Truth is, if a meat-packer’s daughter wields the power to convince an influential political power broker to install her as the president of his corporation; abandon a sick wife; convert from Protestantism to Catholicism; and run up a half-million dollar tab at Tiffany’s, then wants to take a vacation, it’s not likely she’ll take “No” for an answer.

Fred Barnes, assessing Newt Gingrich’s tendency to make poor choices, confirmed something that’s been obvious to many of those on the right for awhile: “The problem [is Newt’s] wife.”

Same as she did back in the 1990’s, according to Barnes, this year “Callista Gingrich gradually emerged as Gingrich’s most influential adviser.” Like the pied piper of love, on her French horn Callista Louise tooted out a couple of bars of the “Love Boat” theme, pointed toward the gangplank, and like a smitten lap dog Newt followed the blonde in the pricey bling, and in so doing probably sealed his political fate.
