House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is now going all out to lower the official federal voting age to 16-years-old. She made the statement at a press conference in Ferguson, Missouri. The left wants impressionable, immature teenagers to vote because they are easily manipulated and cave to peer pressure. The Democrats say they are too young to own a gun, drink, smoke, or serve in the military, but voting is just peachy.
“We’re obviously collecting thoughts about it. Just because someone has a good idea — any of us — doesn’t mean it’s going to the Floor next,” Pelosi said. “It means you go through the process. You build consensus. You build a crescendo. That’s another club I’m starting: the crescendo club.” Please spare us.
Pelosi went on to say, “You have an idea? Let’s see how many people you can convince. Let’s see what the other views are that we can enhance this.”
She says she has always supported lowering the voting age. This is the same woman who loves gang bangers mind you. The Democrat-proposed legislation, known as the “For The People Act” (H.R.1), includes a debate over a failed amendment intended to lower the voting age to 16 years of age. The amendment was defeated 126-305, but H.R.1 passed.

“I myself, personally — I’m not speaking for my caucus. I myself have always been for lowering the voting age to 16,” Pelosi said last week. “I think it’s really important to capture kids when they’re in high school, when they’re interested in all of this, when they’re learning about government to be able to vote.”
You mean when they don’t even know what the system or the right entails yet. They know nothing about politicians or politics in general. The Democrats want easily swayed kids who are being brainwashed by Marxists to have a say in the leadership of the country. That’s a horrific idea.

From The Daily Caller:
“The Speaker further elaborated on her thoughts concerning the issue Monday night when she joined Missouri Democratic Rep. Lacy Clay to talk about and take questions about H.R.1, as well as the Voting Rights Advancement Act of 2019 (H.R.4).
“ …. When kids are in high school is really a prime time for them to be aware of civics. Many years ago, when I was in school, civics was a requirement. Then — remember that? Well, you don’t remember that, but you read about it.”
“But then, it became an elective, and I don’t know. There were other things kids took instead. So, the point is that when they are in high school, we see such a heightened interest in history and civics and climate and gun safety and you name it. And that would be a time for them to be registered to vote. Now, we want to start something that might say ‘register to register.’ But you’ve got to get them on there because once they leave high school, not all kids go to college. And even if they do, they might not be in that same sense of community that they as high school students can make a big difference. More and more, more and more.
“Pelosi previously supported a local effort two years ago in San Francisco known as Proposition F, which would have lowered the voting age for municipal elections, but the measure was defeated.”
In other words, get them while they are too young to make independent choices. As The New American astutely put it, “She may not expect wisdom from the mouths of babes, but she sure expects Democrat votes.”

Since 2013, thirteen states have proposed bills to lower the voting age. Some of the proposals are strictly for school board elections while others are for state elections. Some American leftists have actually proposed lowering the voting age to 14. Oregon lawmakers proposed lowering the voting age late last year, with Democrat State Senator Shemia Fagan saying that 16-year-olds should have the chance “to participate in the ballot — about decisions that affect their homes, their clean air, their future, their schools and, as we’ve seen, their very lives.”
Pubescent suffrage would build leftist power since the young vote overwhelmingly Democrat. In the 2018 midterm elections, 67 percent of voters under 30 went for a House Democrat.

This is why a number of cultures require their young people to serve in the military before voting – it not only builds character, it shows them how the world really works before making serious decisions like voting.
Pelosi’s terrible idea is a crazy and irresponsible one. A child’s brain doesn’t fully develop until age 25, almost ten years after Pelosi wants a young person to start voting. Some students don’t take government classes until their senior year of high school and yet we expect responsible voting for our leaders?
Pelosi’s move is sheer pandering to America’s youth for votes. It’s simply disgusting. The majority of Americans reject lowering the voting age to 16 for a number of good reasons. Rasmussen released a new poll showing that an overwhelming majority of likely U.S. voters (74%) oppose lowering the voting age to 16. Just 17% favor the idea.
It’s very simple. Pelosi wants the voting age lowered to 16 because teenagers have less judgment and therefore are more likely to vote Democrat. Clearly, Americans don’t feel lowering the national voting age to 16 would be a good or prudent idea.

Sanders To Cut Staffer’s Hours To Pay $15 Min Wage – This Is His Plan For America
It should be glaringly apparent what a flaming, red hypocrite comrade Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is. He has demanded a $15 an hour minimum wage and more unionization for years. He has unionized his workers and is now paying them $15 an hour – he’s also cut his staffers’ hours to compensate for this move. Note to Sanders: that’s not what your supporters wanted.
The union contract that Sanders negotiated resulted in a flat annual salary of $36,000 for field staffers. In a normal 40-hour work week, that would pay about $17 per hour. But some staffers say they work up to 60 hours a week, meaning their pay ends up being about $13 per hour. Thus, Sanders will limit staffers’ hours to ensure they get at least $15 an hour. In the end, this means they will make less, not more working for the elderly socialist. Doing Moscow proud.
“We look forward to continuing those discussions and obviously are disappointed that some individuals decided to damage the integrity of these efforts before they were concluded,” said Sanders campaign manager Faiz Shakir in a statement to Newsweek. “As these discussions continue, we are limiting hours so no employee is receiving less than $15 for any hours worked.”
Do these guys realize just how bad this makes them look? I doubt it… self-awareness is not their strong suit, to say the least. It never is for communists.
Bernie Sanders says his campaign will limit the hours staffers work so they are paid the equivalent of $15 an hour. “I’m very proud to be the first presidential candidate to recognize a union and negotiate a union contract,” he told me. https://t.co/IBJdMiIIIu

From The Daily Wire:
“Shakir also told Newsweek that the campaign had offered to give field organizers a raise — to $42,000 annually, but the offer was rejected because staffers would have had to work six days a week. That salary also would have forced them “to pay more of their own health care costs,” Newsweek reported.
“The Des Moines Register reported that Sanders complained that staffers were going to the press instead of keeping their concerns internal.
“I’m very proud to be the first presidential candidate to recognize a union and negotiate a union contract,” Sanders told the outlet. “And that contract was ratified by the employees of the campaign, and it not only provides pay of at least $15 an hour, it also provides, I think, the best health care benefits that any employer can provide for our field organizers.”
“It does bother me that people are going outside of the process and going to the media,” he added. “That is really not acceptable. It is really not what labor negotiations are about, and it’s improper.”
I can't stop thinking of how stupid this is. Limiting hours so you can raise wages has literally no effect on how much your employees make. Only benefit is you being able to say you pay them $15 an hour. Beyond cynical. https://t.co/UdlxUBIhvA

“Sanders had previously expressed his dismay with press leaks ahead of his trip to Iowa this weekend.
“We are disappointed that some individuals have decided to damage the integrity of these efforts. We are involved in negotiations. And some are individuals that have decided to damage the integrity of that process before they were concluded,” he said.
“What Sanders is experiencing is exactly what he wants to foist onto millions of Americans and their employers. His staffers were salaried, but hourly workers will also see their hours cut in order to ensure they’re paid $15 per hour. As for negotiations, those demanding better working conditions routinely go to the press. They also sometimes hold strikes that are guaranteed to get media coverage. For Sanders to complain about how things are going in his campaign shows he hasn’t truly thought through the consequences of his policies.”
This reminds me of that take about how farmers in the USSR had more vacation time than people in the US now.
The point of raising the minimum wage is that so PEOPLE MAKE MORE MONEY, not make the same amount of money and have 3 days off a week, you dolt. https://t.co/QZlu9cNtDD

What’s a socialist to do? They want higher pay and free healthcare. In fact, they don’t really even want to work. They want their student loans paid and wages given to them whether they earn them or not. These people are worthless and hopeless. Sanders would set the minimum wage at $15 an hour for all Americans causing unemployment to soar if he got the chance.
Sanders’ minions are not happy and conservatives are savaging him over this:
“For the first time in his life, socialist Bernie Sanders practices economics and, buddy, the results are hilarious,” wrote columnist and humorist Stephen Miller. He added: “Why won’t millionaire Bernie Sanders, who owns 3 homes, instead of cutting hours, pay his staff a living wage? People are starving.”
Texas Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw lambasted the discord in the Sanders’ campaign and says it is beyond parody: “So does this fall under the category of hypocrisy, irony, or poetic justice?” Crenshaw asked. “All three? Can’t make this stuff up.” Lol.
“This situation is an instructive example of the downside of more than doubling the minimum wage,” wrote The Blaze’s Aaron Colen. “Companies don’t just suddenly get more money to pay employees. They have to make tough decisions; usually either cutting hours or worse, cutting staff.” Gee, reality bites… doesn’t it Bernie?
“This is just *chef’s kiss*.” Ben Shapiro wrote, “In which Bernie Sanders learns about economics.” Too true, except he’ll never learn.
Speaking on “America’s Newsroom,” Charles Payne said Sanders “blew a hole in his own $15 an hour minimum wage argument,” adding that he is paying his staff “what the market would bear.”
“There is a maximum amount of time you can work, some people may lose their jobs, I think Bernie may actually blew a hole in his own $15 an hour minimum wage argument,” Payne said.
“Needless to say, I think Bernie learned a valuable lesson, and by the way, his campaign doesn’t generate revenue.”
No, he didn’t. Of course, Sanders sees this as some form of communist morality… not a dollars and cents issue. And that is exactly why he will never be president thank goodness.

General Hospital Star Asks Ivanka If Her Daughter’s New Puppy Is A Nazi Yet
It seems that the left can’t ever stop their lunatic behavior. Here we have a woman who we’ve never heard of claiming to be a star. She wants her 15 minutes.
It’s amazing how the left connects having a dog to being a Nazi and that America never had a border until President Trump got elected. This is how stupid these people are, folks.
These people are getting worse every day. Their hatred for Trump literally has them foaming at the mouth. This psychotic behavior is only strengthening our side. Just wait until the landslide victory in 2020.
Soap star Nancy Lee Grahn reiterated her disdain for the Trump family in a tweet posted Sunday, smearing White House Senior Advisor Ivanka Trump as a Nazi after she posted a picture of her family’s new dog, Winter.
Trump tweeted a photo of her family’s newest furry addition – or what she called “Arabella’s birthday dream come true” – in a tweet to her 6.7 million Twitter followers Saturday. Grahn pounced and went on the attack.
“How darling. I see you skipped a rescue and went straight to an Aryan breeder. Does it sit and sieg heil yet?” Grahn said, making a clear Nazi reference.

The General Hospital star has long been an outspoken opponent of the Trump family. Last week, Grahn called Trump an “evidenced lunatic” who has “mortifyingly not been impeached yet” due to Republicans in the Senate.
Shouldn’t have to say this, but the ONLY reason an evidenced lunatic has mortifyingly not been impeached yet is entirely due to every Republican in the Senate sans 1. They are what’s wrong with us.

Last month, the Santa Barbara actress came under fire after posting a picture of kids in migrant shelters wrapped in aluminum blankets and blaming it squarely on the Trump administration. Some social media users, however, quickly noticed that she cropped out the date, hiding the fact that the photo was taken during the Obama administration.
“Trump administration is forcing children 2 sleep on cement floor with an aluminum blanket & lights on all night,” she tweeted. “Sarah Fabian from DOJ argued in court that it was good enough & soap was unnecessary. Companies making 750 a kid a day to torture them.”

Grahn eventually admitted that the photos were taken during the Obama administration but refused to back down.
“Had I noticed that, I would’ve clearly realized that it was from the Obama administration because he, unlike Trump, didn’t have a policy of separating children from their parents. Only a monster would do that,” she tweeted in part.
— Nancy Lee Grahn (@NancyLeeGrahn) June 25, 2019
Trump signed an executive order ending family separations last June, telling reporters: “We’re going to have strong, very strong borders, but we’re going to keep the families together.”
“I didn’t like the sight or the feeling of families being separated,” he added.
Despite the cries from Grahn and other left-wing celebrities, the “cages” the left frequently refers to were set up and utilized by the Obama administration.
