“Don’t tweet about it!” – Pelosi scolds House Democrats in big ‘family’ meeting

This probably isn’t the year Pelosi was hoping it would be as Speaker, having had to deal earlier this year with the blatant ‘anti-Semitism’ in her party. Now, reports are, that she’s trying to quell the bubbling divisions in her own party between the radical leftists and the moderate leftists:

POLITICO – Speaker Nancy Pelosi chided progressives in a closed-door meeting Wednesday, calling on them to address their intra-party grievances privately rather than blasting their centrist colleagues on Twitter.

Pelosi’s comments, which were described as stern, came during the first full caucus meeting since a major blow up over emergency border funding last month between progressive and moderate lawmakers as well as a recent spat with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and her freshman allies.

“So, again, you got a complaint? You come and talk to me about it,” Pelosi told Democrats, according to a source in the room. “But do not tweet about our members and expect us to think that that is just ok.”

Democrats inside the room said they interpreted that remark as a shot at Rep. Mark Pocan (D-Wis.), co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, who called moderate Democrats members of the “Child Abuse Caucus” in a tweet over their support for the Senate’s version of the emergency humanitarian package.

“I’m here to help the children when it’s easy and when it’s hard. Some of you are here to make a beautiful pâté but we’re making sausage most of the time,” Pelosi told the caucus.

The speaker gave an emphatic defense of the moderates in the caucus, according to multiple sources, telling the room that they’re critical to holding the House majority. Pelosi told Democrats not to make the Blue Dog Coalition their targets and instead criticize her publicly if they need to go after someone.

“We are a family, and every family has its moments,” Pelosi said.

I don’t think a stern talking too is really going to help Democrats much, to be honest. People like AOC and other radical leftists feel too strongly about their ‘principles’ and they love Twitter too much. It’s very easy to criticize opponents on Twitter and score points with their fan base.



Pelosi is also said to have indirectly gone after AOC’s chief of staff:

Pelosi also indirectly criticized Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff, according to Democrats in the room, as she told members to tell their staffers to “think twice” before they tweet.

Saikat Chakrabarti, Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff, went after Pelosi in a series of tweets over the weekend, criticizing everything from her comments on the squad to her stance against impeachment.

Chakrabarti also tweeted scathing criticism of the Blue Dogs, calling them the “New Southern Democrats.”

“They certainly seem hell bent to do black and brown people today what the old Southern Democrats did in the 40s,” Chakrabarti wrote on Twitter before deleting the post.

Incidentally, a somewhat recent photo of Chakrabarti has been going around social media this week showing him “wearing a t-shirt that depicts the Nazi collaborator Subhas Chandra Bose”, according to Free Beacon.

But I digress.

At the end of the day I think these radicals in the Democratic Party will win out over the moderates and Pelosi will have to fall in line with them or retire. If you don’t believe me just look at the 2020 Democratic field. I’m not even sure there’s a strong moderate among them.

  1. So is it official now that National Socialists are related to Democrats and not Republicans?

  2. O/T: Confederate Railroad has been canceled from the fair in Du Quoin, Illinois because their name is racist or something. Ironically, the town is south of the Mason-Dixon line.

    1. I heard about that. Ridiculousness knows no bounds. I’ve also heard the Dixie Chics will be making a comeback. Will they keep their name?

          1. I’m not familiar with their music. I recently started listening to country, oldies and outlaw.

            1. By outlaw, do you mean the Highwaymen – Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson, Willy Nelson? I love their music. Alison Krauss is a favorite too.

            2. Me either but she is on a Willie Nelson collaboration (with multiple artists) album (I’m a huge fan of him). May I suggest to you Willie & Johnny’s VH1 Storytellers (it’s great)?

  3. I never thought I would see the day that the democrat party is coming apart at the seams. I believe 2020 is going to be another loser for dems.

  4. So is it official now that National Socialists are related to Democrats and not Republicans?

  5. At least ‘the kids’ are honest about who they are and what they think. Nancy doesn’t want the mask pulled off.

  6. I never thought I would see the day that the democrat party is coming apart at the seams. I believe 2020 is going to be another loser for dems.

  7. Well, it’s not like we aren’t saddled with some ridiculous, “muh principles,” folks as well.

    I mean, yeah, let’s have principles. Maybe even read some scholarship on them like the Founders did. But the David French types have gone so far into Muh Principles Land that they came out the back and are lost in a negative zone, where you are frozen in place, forever willing to let the country go as left as possible to avoid having to do anything *difficult* to preserve anything worthwhile.

    I’ll let Ace take it from here, in his excellent rant from yesterday…

    Ace (AoSHQ): #WokeCorporatism, Continued: Starbucks Demands Cops Leave Restaurant Because One Sissy Snowflake Claims That the Presence of Cops Makes Xim Feel “Unsafe”

    That one ought to singe Mr. French’s whiskers.

  8. Since when was Pelosi and her sort are “moderates”. I can see the “average Joe” come to the conclusion, “See, Nancy is simply a moderate…..” And this is what is wrong with this whole story. Essentially, “don’t spill all the beans out, we are doing great lying to the American people” is the mantra of the old guard.

  9. Idiot conservatives/moderates who voted Democrat used to be called yellow dogs. When did they become “blue dogs”??

    The Democrats were actually red on the electoral map before Reagan got elected until the communists in the news media decided to switch up their propaganda because red Democrats hit too close to the truth.

    And everyone goes with the new lingo because that’s what the mind control has dictated.

  10. The monkeybrains for president clown car is at cross-purposes with Congressional Dems, who need a wider political spectrum to hold power. As the nominees run further left, they increase the chance of winning the nomination, but losing the race; and somehow if a progressive wins the presidency, all hope of holding the House is lost.

    I am starting to wonder if the leftist but not progressive DNC is hanging the progressive wing out to dry.

  11. as she told members to tell their staffers to “think twice” before they tweet.

    Ahahahahaha, that’s the exact opposite of how twitter works, Nance.

  12. So the party of Leftist/Socialist has a leaker, my bet is it’s Pelosi, Schumer forgot to remind her to wear her depends.

  13. O/T: Confederate Railroad has been canceled from the fair in Du Quoin, Illinois because their name is racist or something. Ironically, the town is south of the Mason-Dixon line.

                1. That’s where it aired, of course, but there was an album (CD) cut of it. It’s really good.

                2. There is a song Titled ‘Tramp on the Street.I just keyed in the Title and it listed three Artist that sing it.George Jones,Hank Williams Sr. and Joan Baez.All three do a great job on this one.

                3. My wife,when she was still with me and I got to meet George Jones and our photo taken back stage at one of his concerts

                1. No. I haven’t heard it yet. I’ll tell you a really good Willie album is “Live & Kickin'” from his 70th birthday. It has Leon Russell, Ray Charles, Toby Keith, Steven Tyler, Diane Krall, etc. Now, I guess there is a new one I need to go buy because I didn’t even realize he had one out. I haven’t bought music in years. If you were asking me about the one with Johnny, just google Willie and Johnny Storytellers. Sorry, I’m not sure if I’m getting our lines crossed because I can’t tell which comment you’re replying to. 😕

            2. By outlaw, do you mean the Highwaymen – Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson, Willy Nelson? I love their music. Alison Krauss is a favorite too.

                1. Have you listened to Robert Earl Keen? Ray Wylie Hubbard? Should check them out too. Your mention of Steve Earle made me think of them. Re: David Allen Coe, apparently, he had an album or two that weren’t sold in stores. I found this out a few months ago and OMG, that music is just wrong. I can’t even name one song here, but check out “Little Suzy Shallow Throat.”

                2. Oh, yeah, he’s got some x-rated stuff, I’ve heard. I only have his best of, which is pretty good. I’ll check out Keene and Hubbard. Also, we have an up and coming outlaw, Jerry Wells. He’s a little raw yet, but I think that he’s going places. Whiskey is a great song.

                3. @Squirrelly
                  Ray Wylie Hubbard is fantastic. Robert Earl King is really good too. You might check out Jimmie Dale Gilmore and also the Flatlanders.

                4. Husband and I are hoping Ray Wylie Hubbard will come somewhere nearby. He’s older so got to catch him as soon as we can. He was about 3 hours away a couple of years ago, and we were going to go but something happened. I don’t remember. I saw Robert Earl Keen about 20 years ago. Would like to see him again. There are a fee others as well like Ryan Bingham, Jason Boland, and Hayes Carll. Hayes will be in Little Rock next month so probably going to catch him. I’ll check out Gilmore and the Flatlanders. Both ring a bell but I can’y say I know the music.

                5. @Dr. Strangelove
                  I love Steve Earle’s music as long as I don’t think about his politics. Some years ago I was going thru a rough patch and his album Transcendental Blues helped me thru it.

                  I recently saw him along with Dwight Yoakam and Junior Brown (world’s best country guitarist) in my area.

                6. I got into him when he released his first album, Guitar Town actually crossed over to a progressive rock station in Chicago. His liberalism leaks through on a couple songs.

  14. The far left islamo-marxist faction of the democrat party are like barnacles. Once they embed themselves they don’t let go. Pelosi and her so called, moderate, ilk created this division by supporting the islamo savages and marxists to take root in their party.

    1. I prefer to think of them as leeches or lampreys, which attach themselves to their victims and suck the life away.

  15. At least ‘the kids’ are honest about who they are and what they think. Nancy doesn’t want the mask pulled off.

  16. If I were Nancy, and thank goodness I’m not, I would work on getting them primaried. That’s the only way to deal with them.

  17. AOC and the rest of the gang are spoiled children. They wont take Pelosi’s rebuke lightly. They’re going to throw a tantrum. I must say, I’m ecstatic.

  18. In the past Pelosi is use to members towing the party line and taking orders from her. Now she is experiencing what it’s like to heard cats.

      1. @watchman It’s quite obvious that the democrats do not require intelligence as a prerequisite to being a member of their bat s**t crazy party?

  19. Why is The Right Scoop icon from my bookmarks suddenly displaying the G (Google) logo?

  20. “I’m here to help the children when it’s easy and when it’s hard. Some of you are here to make a beautiful pâté but we’re making sausage most of the time.”

    Uh, it would seem that Crazy Nancy is off her meds again. Children? Pâté? Sausage? What the heck is the the deranged old crone talking about? The truth is that Pelosi no longer has any power – AOC and those two smelly muslim terrorists have taken control of the party – they set the agenda.

  21. Awesome. I’m heading right to Twitter to see if I can bait @AOC to Tweet her grievances, thus leading to Pelosi finally removing AOC from her Committee chair.

      1. Goodness no. She probably has me muted, LOL. But calling her “genius” in a not-so-nice way probably won’t win me any points.

  22. Well, it’s not like we aren’t saddled with some ridiculous, “muh principles,” folks as well.

    I mean, yeah, let’s have principles. Maybe even read some scholarship on them like the Founders did. But the David French types have gone so far into Muh Principles Land that they came out the back and are lost in a negative zone, where you are frozen in place, forever willing to let the country go as left as possible to avoid having to do anything *difficult* to preserve anything worthwhile.

    That one ought to singe Mr. French’s whiskers.

    1. If you could re-shape the country back to the vision of the Founders (or the vision of K-Bob, if you prefer) and all you have to do is commit a single murder – would you do it? Not a killing, not a death, not a self-defense but a malicious intentional murder. (And don’t try to wiggle out on WHO you murder. Let’s just assume that I get to pick the person out for you – and then you have to go and slay them.)

      Let’s have principles: Murder is wrong.
      Let’s have scholarship: Murder is wrong because people have the right to life and depriving them of that deprives that right and to intentionally deprive rights with malice is immoral.
      Let’s add theology too (just for kicks): You WILL go to Hell if you decide to take this action.

      Now, are you going to commit a murder? Or will you not walk that far into “Muh Principles Land?”
