"Your congressman Alexandria, Ocasio. Cortez has not been shy about the extent she wants to remake the entire United States economy and certainly how she wants to change things like energy in the United States under her so called Green new deal. It's a Obscenely expensive and simultaneously destructive legislative ambition on she's gotten some sign on from various members of Congress, but she also would like to leverage her concern about those issues for interest in both. Theme, the about energy and commerce into actually being a part of the Committee for Energy and Commerce. And something very interesting happened yesterday. Beverly, Um Yesterday. There was apparently a tough battle going on in the Democratic caucus about who was going to actually be seated. On the Energy and Commerce Committee coming up in the next year. In Alexandria, Ocasio Cortez had a shot. She was based on face head to head with Congresswoman Kathleen Rice, also of New York, and it was open seat. These two women have been battling. Apparently behind the scenes political reports for weeks. To secure this open seat on this exclusive committee, which oversees everything from health care policy to climate issues. Meaning is a big deal job, and it involves a lot of power and They say that everything blew up into the open on Thursday when the two women were facing off. And ultimately, Kathleen Rice prevailed. She won with 46 to 13 vote, meaning Ocasio Cortez will not be seated on this committee. She lost a chance to get that open seat. Now for Congress watchers Remember Nancy Pelosi has a tremendous amount of power here about who gets seeded and who doesn't What speedster actually competitive and what aren't and I got to say I can't help But remember. Earlier this week, Beverly Alexandria Kaze of Cortez going public, saying Nancy Pelosi needs to go boys. She picked the wrong time to do that. There is no love lost between these two women, and I have to say I would love to be a fly on the wall and hear their private conversations that they even speak to each other. But there has been a battle between AOC and what is referred to as the more establishment wing of the Democratic Party. The reason why I think Nancy Pelosi has her way still to this day. Hey, is because it's because of progressives that there wasn't a blue wave. They wanted to go on with the mantra of defund the police. They wanted to talk about socialism. And, of course, AOC is one of their largest spokes members for these type of progressive ideas. I think Nancy Pelosi, who by the way is great. It whipping people whipping people in our Congress to do what she wants him to deal. I think she still has the leverage because it's because of these progressive policies that Democrats lost so many seats in the house. Yes, she has a much smaller class to whip. This time because of people like Alexandria, Causio, Cortez and the lunatic defund the police advocates that were destroying American cities. And then by extension, the chances that power that Nancy Pelosi was hoping to expand. That did not happen this year. So still, Alexander Acosta protest comes out in the beginning of the week and suggests, okay, Nancy Pelosi needs to go. We need to figure out a way to get rid of her as speaker of the house and think about this. I mean, just to give you a sense of what actually played out here. Kathleen Rice beating Alexandria, Cosmo Cortez out For this seat on the Energy and Commerce Committee. Just two years ago, Kathleen Rice was blockaded from a Judiciary Committee seat. By who It would be Nancy Pelosi, Pelosi, Stop Kathleen Rice from getting a seat on the Judiciary Committee. Why Because Kathleen Rice spoke out against Nancy Pelosi becoming speaker. That was two years ago. Now look forward to the coming days as we begin January, and as we as we look at who you know who gets support for speaker of the House and who doesn't Even Kathleen Rice is going to obey. This time. She learned her lesson last time, and now she's been rewarded for her obedience. Now think about that. So is it is pretty interesting Power struggle. Alexandria, Ocasio Cortez. Uh, losing at this this battle for an important spot on an important committee. But of course this is something we're gonna have Tol watch moving forward. I think there is going to come a point in time. Maybe two years from now, or a Nancy Pelosi doesn't have the same power where AOC and her social media influencer star continues to rise because here's what I would say about AOC disagree, thrown all her policies. I don't think there's one thing I agree with her on but what I will give to her. Is she has made a name for herself. She makes the news. She knows how to create news. She knows how to gain attention on social media better than any other Democrat that I know and that counts for something, And I don't think Republicans should add. Underestimate her because I think she has a lot of followers behind her. Yeah, she might. Tic tac Nancy Pelosi right out of the house. A 52 on W E mail were Washington comes to talk. This is what's happened in this country today. Washington's mall. This is what we call.

U.S. faces 'crisis' at southern border, Nielsen says

"Security secretary Kristen Nielsen says a legal immigration has prompted humanitarian crisis at the southern border in a house hearing yesterday. Nielsen warned that illegal immigration is spiraling out of control. And she said border officials are on track to apprehend nine hundred thousand undocumented immigrants this year alone. And she also defended President Trump's efforts to build that massive border wall. During the hearing Mississippi democrat Bennie Thompson accused Nielsen of evading questions about migrant kids being detained in cages, she replied, we don't use cages for children, California Democrat net. Baragan again said that she has witnessed asylum seekers being turned away from a US port of entry despite Nielsen's claim that the US doesn't do that. Also challenged the Trump administration the democrat in the net. Baragan also charge. The Trump administration. Migrant family separation policy. Nielsen said that there's no such policy. And baragan called that comment. Outrageous. That's when Representative Kathleen rice jumped in and ripped the secretary on Twitter. This is ally lying to congress under oath is a felony the last person who did that is going to prison. So they sparred back and forth yesterday, but pretty clear that the homeland security secretary Kristen Nielsen is firmly behind the president's effort to build that massive border wall.

"Of the House Democrats who just one victory elections. But the president was act -solutely, correct? Pelosi may not be the new speaker. If you look here locally, Kathleen rice, the former national county DA congresswoman is being pressured by Cuomo and the other mainstream Democrats, and she said, I am not voting for Nancy Pelosi threaten me cajole me. Whatever you wanna do. It's a new generation of Democrats, you all farts moved to the side. We do not want Pelosi Pelosi's in trouble. Oh, clearly may not be the speaker. So I actually enjoyed that. Watching her twist in the wind. Yeah. It was great. And there was some great. And I applaud the president. I know you feel that they all it was orchestrated. I do not. I actually think it was a moment that probably was waiting for many many months, and I applaud the president for saying no keep the cameras here. Nancy Pelosi kept saying, oh, let's go behind closed doors. We shouldn't be arguing about this. So publicly with the media there with all the cameras to see sometimes. And in the past Curtis. I've covered a lot of these things were often. You know, you're sitting there they let you spray it, and it's just be role. Basically just video that you get to see.

"Longtime members who have been big critics of hers and some other incumbents who who have kind of signed onto that over the last six months or so, but but you have not been quite as vociferous in their opposition to her. And then we've got newly elected members who were saying on the campaign trail in twenty eighteen that they would not vote for Pelosi for speaker, or I should say some of them said that and others kind of called more vaguely for new leadership, which I guess is an important distinction. Right. And so those three camps. It's really important to remember that when you're going through the list, and you're thinking, okay, there's sixteen folks who signed a letter thing they're not going to vote for her. And then there's another five six to seven depending on how you count mostly freshmen who didn't sign the letter but have previously said, I'm I'm voting no on the floor. And so there's a round twenty twenty two Democrats right now who say they're going to vote no on the floor. But like you said there are those three distinct camps. So what? Felicity doing. She's basically going down a list and she's looking at these three cans and she's thinking, okay. How can I pick up pick off enough of these that I can get to two hundred and eighteen and she knows that in the camp of quote, unquote, never names ears like Kathleen rice, that's molten. Tim Ryan those folks are probably not going to vote for her no matter what. And so I don't think that she's spending too much time or capital trying to move into her side. She did have a meeting with the three of them Wednesday, which we reported, and they didn't go. Well, she. They went in. And they said we want to know when you're stepping down and she basically dismissed them. And from what we were told went on essentially, a thirty minute monologue about how her political accomplishments how shall raise more money than anyone for the vulnerable freshman, and how twenty twenty is a presidential year. And no one's gonna care about the speaker. Anyway. So that's where it is. That being said, though, she hasn't totally ruled them out. We haven't hold from some sources that some donors and folks like that have reached out to someone like Kathleen rice and made a pitch for Pelosi. So that's basically what she's doing? She's trying to apply different various pressure points to members of the three camps and seeing how she can peel some people off and folks like Brian Higgins, and Marcia fudge, they wanted something very specific. Brian Higgins, wanted a promise that she would work on his legislative priorities, Marcia fudge wanted to committee subcommittee chairmanship, and that's where Pelosi's longevity as democratic leader. I mean, she's been at the top for sixteen years eighteen if she's elected speaker really comes in handy because. She has all these little political chits that she can you know, deal out to people. So that's where we're at. Now, she's looking at each member figuring out what their pressure point is. And she's really squeezing them. I'm hoping that she'll get a few more to peel off and get to to eighteen that's really interesting, and now the other consideration here the I've been wondering about for so long. Having watched these campaigns developed around the country in two thousand eighteen is the folks who said that the who specifically said in some in debates some TV ads some in newspaper interviews on the campaign trail that that they would not back her for speaker that they would would go to Washington and not back Pelosi. But Rachel you you mentioned something interesting a few minutes ago. I mean, I it some Democrats seem to think that there's wiggle room for these people to say to vote for her on the floor four speaker even after saying that they wouldn't support her on the campaign trail because they voted against her in the caucus, and there there's this burgeoning argument that they've now covered themselves, but. By voting against her to be the democratic nominee for speaker..

"Met with the leaders of the so-called never nasc- movement. Representative Seth Moulton says the goal agree to a transition plan to allow new generation of leadership to step forward. But Representative Kathleen rice says Pelosi dismissed their concerns. None of us wants to take this to a floor fight. But the voters have to be hurt we need to protect new members hoping that we will have conversations in the future right now. Pelosi doesn't have the two hundred eighteen both needed to become the house speaker in January now, but she's going to do it. And I think what's going to end up happening is they're going to make a deal. They're going to say look. Will allow you to be speaker? We'll get behind you. And. You've got to promise us that this is it you've got these two years, and then you've got to give it up. And I think that I I it's hard. You know, what this is what I think Nancy will say, yes.

But I expect to have a powerful vote as we go forward. And who knows what might be best for her for Trump is that she doesn't have it. Trump can convince Republicans to get in on it. Because he knows in a weird way. They may be allies to each other. And that could be very interesting. Absolutely. Could be very interesting to see what happens, and he's already said that I called her that night today, if you need votes, I might be able to get some votes that might be a help for Trump because remember if there's going to be impeachment investigations, it's all coming from the house. So if she needs votes to get over the hump in the long term is they look at everything. And while the Democrats are now say it isn't. So it's you know, so we can till January. It's going to be there.
