House Speaker Nancy Pelosi slammed Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez at an event in the United Kingdom when asked about the attempts to move the Democrat Party further to the left, saying that a “glass of water” could have won in Ocasio-Cortez’s New York district.
Pelosi was asked about the future of the Democrat Party, and she maintained that the party must keep a centrist line if it hopes to remain nationally competitive.
“When we won this election, it wasn’t in districts like mine or Alexandria’s,” said Pelosi. “And she’s a wonderful member of Congress, I think all of our colleagues will attest. But those are districts that are solidly Democratic.”
She then gestured at a glass of water provided for her speech, and said “This glass of water would win with a D next to its name in those districts,” seeming to insult the intelligence of Democrat voters.
Pelosi then claimed that she shares all of Ocasio-Cortez’s beliefs, but now is not the time to mention them for strategic reasons. Instead, Pelosi seemed to suggest Democrats should focus on appearing centrist until they hold important offices, and then surprise Americans with the far left policies, from universal healthcare to the Green New Deal, that Ocasio-Cortez advocates.
“What we’re saying is to have a message that appeals to people that does not menace them, that really does address their concerns,” Pelosi said. “When we win, and we have the White House, and we have that, then we can expand our exuberance to some other things.”

Pelosi has faced increasing challenges within her own party in the months since the Democrats recaptured the House last year, with President Donald J. Trump saying she is “totally controlled” by radical leftists.
President Donald Trump addressed reporters ahead of his 4 PM announcement on some kind of immigration compromise.
Trump said that Pelosi “is under total control of the radical Left, and that’s a problem.”
Trump-supporting hardliners are hoping that Trump will not offer amnesty to DREAMers in return for Wall funding, even though a solid case could be made for why it’s a good “Art of the Deal” move, forcing Pelosi to be the one who blocks amnesty because she refuses to build the Wall.
It remains to be seen whether Pelosi can carefully chide and persuade her new colleagues to lower the impact of their more radical views, and keep the Democrat Party nationally competitive for the upcoming 2020 election.
‘Team Mitch’ Alumnus Nick Sandmann Fires Controversial Defamation Attorney Lin Wood
Sandmann is accusing Wood of making false statements about himself.
Conservative activist Nicholas Sandmann, the former Covington Catholic student turned cheerleader for Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), has dropped high-profile defamation attorney Lin Wood after Wood made public statements about Sandmann on the Telegram social media platform.
“No client had abandoned me but I expect Nicholas Sandmann may do so as he be (sic) feeling the pressure from members of Mitch McConnell’s team on which Nicholas worked this election cycle,” Wood wrote in the Telegram post.
Wood’s prediction would soon come to pass as Sandmann made the public announcement on Monday that he is dropping Wood as his attorney.
Lin Wood has been terminated as counsel at this time. His comments about me are untrue, unfair, and unfounded.

Even though Wood says he has been abandoned by friends, family, and now one of his most high-profile clients, he intends to continue fighting against corruption no matter what the cost.
“Until and unless they silence me by imprisonments or death, I will not stop fighting for We the People, for honest elections, for freedom, and for the thousands of little children who are being abused, molested, and sacrificed for the demonic pleasures of very evil people in this world – including leaders in our government,” Wood wrote.
Sandmann posted Wood’s Telegram rant on Twitter as well:

Big League Politics has reported about the settlement that Wood helped Sandmann receive after he was slammed by the fake news media for smiling at a gin-soaked Indian after a Washington D.C. pro-life rally in 2019:
Fake news giant CNN settled the lawsuit filed against them by Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann today for an undisclosed sum following their biased coverage against the child last year.
Sandmann’s lawsuit sought $800 million from CNN as well as the Washington Post and NBC Universal for their alleged defamation of the student following the boy’s confrontation with far-left Indian activist Nathan Phillips. The cases against the WaPo and NBC are still active.
“This case will be tried not one minute earlier or later than when it is ready,” said Sandmann’s attorney Lin Wood.
Wood also claims that Gannett, the parent company behind the Enquirer, will be slapped with a lawsuit in the days to come. He says that Sandmann continues to suffer from “emotional distress, damage to reputation and distress to his family” as a result of the mistreatment by the fake news.
Last year, the coverage of Sandmann was a galvanizing moment among the Right against the fake news and the liberal hate machine that never hesitates to destroy a young white man’s life over a pack of lies.
While Sandmann may have been justified tossing Wood aside due to his radical and unhinged comments over the past several months, the proud Team Mitch alumnus seems to be building up his bona fides as a establishment Republican.
