Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, November 13, 2018

Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Tuesday kicked off her first day of new-member orientation by participating in a climate change protest at House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's office. About 200 people were in Pelosi's office lobby and down the hall, and among them was the 29-year-old New York Democrat. The protest was organized by Sunrise Movement, which is mobilizing young people to fight climate change and calling for more green jobs.

Protesters carrying "Green Jobs for All" signs are pushing for a bolder plan. They point to dire warnings from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, saying there are 12 years left to limit the damage of climate change. "We're here because we're scared and we're angry," said Garrett Blad, a Sunrise Movement spokesman. "We don't believe we need any more education or any more science."

No word yet on how Pelosi reacted to a freshman congresswoman participating in a protest at her office where 51 protesters were arrested.

Nancy Pelosi is not her "boss".

The People, who hired her and pay her salary, are her "boss".

Republicans have completely forgotten that they work for The People.

Politics for Dummies: WHAT DOES THE SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE DO?

OK so I read the article.

I see no where in there where it says the Speaker is the Boss. Perhaps you can point it out?

By tradition, the Speaker is the head of the majority party in the House.

Members of Congress do not work for the Speaker of the House.

They work for the People.

The People pay their salaries.

Hey, did you also know that the President of the United States works for the People, too!

He does not work for himself or anyone else. He works for the People.

Like I said.

Republicans have totally forgotten that. And it will be your downfall.

Wasn't simple enough for you...

"In addition, the Speaker appoints members and chairpersons of regular committees, special or select committees, conference committees, and designates a majority of the Committee on Rules. The Speaker also determines which legislation is assigned to each committee and which legislation reaches the House floor for a vote. Furthermore, the Speaker determines the House legislative agenda, in consultation with party leaders, committee chairpersons, the president, and the Senate."

There is a saying in the House: "Where you sit is what you do."

Simply put, the Speaker determines what committees you sit on, what legislation you work on, essentially controls your entire existence in the House. If you piss the Speaker off, you get put on the House Administration or Natural Resources Committees, which virtually assure that you will be buried in the newscycle for the entirety of your tenure. Not a smart idea to piss off the person handing out assignments.

Tip O'Neill was famous for telling freshman congressmen: "You have a choice: stay on my good side, or stay home next election."

I served over 17 years on a National Board. We operated under Robert's Rules of Order, with a lawyer and several constitutional experts at every Board meeting. There were about 175 Board members, and the President made the committee assignments.

In no way, shape, or form did ANYONE ever state, or even suggest the President was the Boss. Ever. Over the years I got a lot of requests, but nothing ever approaching a command.

You are wrong Rogers, read up a little about Clay, Rayburn, Reed and Cannon. If you crossed any of those Speakers as the leader of your party, you got the worst committees, offices, no staff, no legislation and most importantly, no help on getting re-elected. Reed actually went so far as to campaign against members of his own party that crossed him.

They may not be able to fire you in the classic sense but they certainly hold your job and what you do in their hands.

Perhaps you should substitute the actual definition of 'boss' into your preconceived notion of what 'boss' means.

boss:
1 : a person who exercises control or authority
2 politics : one who controls votes in a party organization or dictates appointments or legislative measures

Do you deny that Rep Pelosi will most likely exercise control or authority over Ocasio-Cortez, control votes in a party organization for dictate appointments?

I do. Absolutely. OC was elected to the House. NP was elected to the House. The fact one is the Chair of the Board confers neither control nor authority. The Chair certainly has power, like what to bring to the floor, but as we've seen with, say, McConnell and McCain, McConnell had neither authority, nor control.

Dannie, the Senate is vastly different from the House in that the membership turns over much more slowly and the Majority Leader has a fraction of the power that the Speaker of the House has, so you are truly comparing apples and oranges.

The Speaker of the House runs the House in that he/she:

1. Assigns Committees
2. Assigns offices
3. Allocates House administrative funds for staffing, travel, resources
4. Decides which legislation gets advanced and assigns legislation to lawmakers to draft and comment on
5. Allocates Congressional Committee re-election funds
6. Determines where you sit
7. Recognizes members to speak

And much, much more. If you piss off the Speaker, the following can happen:

1. You get assigned to House Admin or Natural Resources, which are dead end Committees
2. You get a tiny office that has no room for LAAs, AAs, even a secretary
3. You get admin funds for one staffer, whereas the top Congresspeople have 5+
4. None of your legislation ever makes it out of Committee, so you have zero accomplishments to show your constituents
5. You get de minimus help from the DCCC or the NRCC for your re-election, which for small districts is incredibly punitive
6. You can tell who is on the Speakers ---- list by who is sitting in the back corners of the House
7. The only time you get to speak is after adornment, when no one is there except for CSPAN 2

Oh yeah, and the Speaker of the House is third in line for the Presidency.

And yes, I know Roberts Rules of Order extremely well and wrote a couple of papers on that subject in a Parliamentary Procedure class at UCLA (a loooong time ago, but they haven't changed.)

LOL, your comprehension either sucks or you are being willfully obtuse.

Control

1. Committees you are assigned to sit on
2. Where your office is and how big it is
3. How many staff you get
4. How big your budget is
5. What you get to work on
6. Whether your legislation gets voted on
7. When you get to speak in front of the cameras
8. How much CC re-election funds you get

Authority

1. All of the above, plus
2. What legislation other than your own that you can work on and attach your name to
3. Pressure to vote for or against certain legislation
4. Whether you run for re-election unopposed by your own party

And that is just scratching the surface.

Look at Pelosi's first 100 days, for example:

1. She rammed six major bills through the House (increasing the minimum wage, broadening stem cell research, allowing government bargaining on Medicare drug prices, cutting student loan costs, putting in place terrorism-fighting recommendations from the Sept. 11 commission and rolling back energy company tax breaks)
2. She eliminated smoking privileges near the House floor,
3. She sidelined a powerful Democratic committee chairman who then lost his re-election bid and
4 She decided she liked traditionally Republican office space so much she claimed it for herself.

She has raised more money for more candidates than any Speaker in history, and she rules the minority with an iron fist.

OCrazio is about to find that out the hard way unless she starts toeing the line.

#48 | Posted by Rightocenter at 2018-11-14 12:03 PM | Reply

1. Stuff Dems were waiting to pass.
2. Ooooooh, no smoking signs! THAT's control!!!
3. Didn't that chairman sideline himself, via a scandal?
4. More room "control".

Nothing which proves the Speaker has authority and control over House members themselves.

Again: Did Paul Ryan have authority and control over the Freedumb Caucus, or did they have authority and control over their own votes?

Since the obvious answer is the latter, how is Pelosi's control suddenly greater than Ryan's?

There's always one in every large group. And the group does what they always do: let the member speak, and then take the vote, which usually goes against that particular speaker. And then you hear:

Next on the agenda....

You were the one deflecting to Ryan, not me. Both Boehner and Ryan were fairly weak Speakers, of that I have no doubt. A strong Speaker controls the votes, a weak one, not so much.

Read a little about Boehner and the Tea Party and then we can have a conversation about it.

But it's a scream that in your list, the punishments include "go sit in the corner" and "go to your tiny, tiny room".

Let me help you get a head start on learning a little more about the House and Committee assignments:

One of the older truisms routinely applied to politicians is, "Where you stand is where you sit." In other words, their ideology flows clearly from their life experience. And on Capitol Hill, there is this corollary: "Where you sit is what you do."

That neatly summarizes the importance of committee assignments in the lives of so many lawmakers. And it helps explain why two dozen favored members of the next Congress got to breathe big sighs of relief before Thanksgiving, while all the others are returning for the rest of the lame-duck session to confront complex battles for the remaining placements.

The jockeying and suspense will be especially acute in the House. Its 435 seats make specialization something close to a job requirement, so committee membership takes on outsize importance in driving each member's legislative priorities and perceived areas of expertise -- and in many cases fundraising focus as well. That helps explain why campaigning for a good assignment is an essential focus during every newly elected member's two-month transition to office, and why the party leaders act as the gatekeepers of membership.

And as for your deflection about Ryan and the Tea Party:
The assignments so far offer some insight into the byzantine world of panel placements, in which the reasons why members end up in certain seats are not always readily apparent or are downright opaque.

What immediately stands out is how virtually all the plum postings went to members of the establishment conservative wing -- a further sign that, four years after the tea party wave brought the Republicans back to power in the House, the majority's leadership sees no need to reward those still in the once-pivotal camp of confrontationalists.

And for the isolationist who's consigned to Foreign Affairs, the conscientious objector who ends up on Veterans Affairs or the corporate lawyer who gets stuck with Small Business? There's always two years from now.

This thread does show the differences between the Right and the Left.
The Right can't conceive of not having a formal patriarchy and hierarchy, enforcing rules.
The Left works fine in ambiguity and without a formal organizational structure. In fact, the Left doesn't much like being told what to do.
The Right needs that structure and the comfort of the rules, and how to behave.
The Left doens't.

This all makes sense in terms of Conservative's developed amygdala, and Liberal's developed prefrontal cortex.

Clown,

Your trolling is WAY over-the-top. Nobody is going to seriously take that bait.

Hey Jeff...

Remember when you posted Tucker Carlson's door was "cracked", and I asked if it passed the smell test we hadn't seen a pic of the door?

Turns out Tucker was...um...lying.

LOL, DailyKos citing Thinkprogess as a source is like Infowars citing Gateway Pundit as a source.

But deflection noted nonetheless.

It was only because JeffJ had posted here most recently.

And I guess you missed the part in the article about the police report. The police work for ThinkProgress too...right?

Hahaha. You already saw it, so you said that so you can claim you predicted it.

I love how Clownshart contributes nothing but invective to the conversation and then declares victory.

Self identifies as a "classic liberal" and a libertarian.

Really is a white supremacist, xenophobic, Nazi-wannabe.

Like I said, the part of the article from Tambourine Boy makes the statement that the police report "makes no mention" of a crack in the door, but that is it.

DailyKos cited Thinkprogress for your assertion that Carlson was lying, nothing more, nothing less.

It's called Triple Hearsay.

Deflection from what?

Running your nose in your stupid claim Nancy Pelosi is Ocasio-Cortez's boss?

You should pray someone deflects away from your stupidity.

"It's called Triple Hearsay."

Except the author of the original piece is a reporter who went along as an observer. Eyewitness.

"the police report "makes no mention" of a crack in the door, but that is it."

Then I'll ask you directly:

Does the fact we haven't seen a picture of the crack in the door pass your smell test?

But you cited the police report. Hearsay.

Doesn't really matter to me.

Start another thread.

Promises, promises.

But. You're doing the right thing. Reading your stupidity thrown in your face hurt your little feelings.

Not my fault you're a fkkking moron.

Trolling? Hahahaha!!

Pointing out Nancy Pelosi isn't Ocasio-Cortez's boss isn't trolling. It was a passing comment in #14.

You got super defensive and have been lashing out ever since.

Plonk me if it makes you feel better.

I know republicans have fragile egos and yours must be blistered.

RoC should take two. His stupidity has caused him great distress.

He's had to resort to closing his eyes to reality.
