The United States House of Representatives is OUR HOUSE!
Nancy Pelosi does not have any right to violate our Constitution when setting House rules.
HotAir commenter pistolero provided this report from the front lines last night.
Another HotAir commenter said:
Now you have to act like a reporter, tell us what you saw, what was said, who said it. Ask questions, make suggestions,
you’re a player, you are in the game! Take notes.
Unfortunately, they don’t allow you to take notes, bring in cameras, audio recorders or anything. But these Youtube clips pretty much sums up what was said.
There was some Rep from Alaska (unfortunately I didn’t catch his name) who was very informative and entertaining about ANWR. He said, the only reason Dems can sell this as a untouchable sanctuary is because of the word ‘Wildlife’ in the name, Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. There isn’t any Wildlife to speak of. On the northern slope there are no trees, no animals to speak of. The other part of the name is ‘Arctic’, because that’s what it is, permafrost, barren, nothingness, as empty and as devoid of life as the cranial cavity of NancyPalooza herself.
These Youtube clips pretty much sums up what was said, but they were nicer in front of the press than they were on the floor. Sorry, I’m not trained as a reporter.

“they don’t allow you to take notes, bring in cameras, audio recorders or anything.”
What level of audacity makes Comrade Pelosi think that she can abridge our Constitutionally protected freedom of the press in OUR HOUSE and in violation of our Constitution’s First Amendment?
We need to bring video cameras into the House chamber, challenge anyone who tries to deny our 1st Amendment rights, and chant “Our House! Our House!” even louder than the Cameron Crazies. We will win, just like they did.
Blue Devils outlast Terps, extend home streak
By Malcolm Moran, USA TODAY
DURHAM, N.C. — The throaty statement was part pride and part defiance, a reminder that even a defending national champ would not easily claim Duke’s Cameron Indoor Stadium as its own. Not Wednesday night. Not this year. “Our house!” the Duke students screamed. “Our house! Our house!“
“We need to bring video cameras into the House chamber…”
Thank God someone did! Check out this video from inside “Our House!” last Friday.
Nancy Pelosi, you can’t shut down free speech in this house!
I’m really glad that they ended the day by singing:
God Bless America, Land That I Love!
Stand Beside Her, And Guide Her,
Through The Night With The Light From Above.
