Nancy Pelosi: "I don't know who Gruber is" & "He didn't write the bill" -BUT here she is in 2009 bringing up Gruber

(via Bret Baier)


  1. You're saying I know who Gruber is?? Are you serious?? Are you serious??"

  2. In a way the Democrat party are like radical Islam. You are permitted ... no, you are encouraged ... to lie to and deliberately deceive "outsiders" in order to advance your "cause".

  3. Conflicted Governor Rauner: Rahm's Mentor

    Private equity underwriter (PEU) Bruce Rauner won the Illinois Governorship and made the news for taking political donations from executives at firms that manage state pension funds. Doing so is against the law, but when do laws apply to the greed and leverage boys or their sponsored politicians? Pretty much never.

    PEUs exploded after the new millennium, becoming ubiquitous under Presidents Bush and Obama. Rauner mentored ex-Congressman Rahm Emanuel, steering him into investment banking. Emanuel went on to serve as President Obama's Chief of Staff and Chicago Mayor.

    Here's what the PEU virus delivers:

    Illinois Governor-elect Bruce Rauner accepted more than $140,000 worth of campaign donations from executives affiliated with firms in which Illinois pension systems have investments, according to documents reviewed by the International Business Times.

    But back to public pension money and Rauner's conflict:

    Financial disclosure documents show he still retains ownership stakes in 15 GTCR entities. Though Rauner said he retired from the firm in 2012, SEC documents show he retains a partnership stake in at least one GTCR subsidiary. The two state pension systems he will now oversee as governor list GTCR as managing state money.

    It gets more twisted when one considers Rauner's GTCR is also a big investor in health care, which taxpayers fund through state Medicaid programs. Rauner has layers and layers of conflicts.

  4. personally, I think she has alzheimer's, and that's not (totally) meant as a joke.

  5. You know in Ghostbusters II how the resulting physical manifestation of New Yorkers' anger/hostility is the pink slime? Well, Nancy Pelosi is the physical manifestation of the American public's ignorance.
