Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and former President Abraham Lincoln.
One and the same.
Well, at least according to Pelosi – pretty much.

Pelosi has been a member of Congress since the late 1980’s. She is now set to receive the JFK Profile in Courage award.
No, that’s not a joke.
Check out what Caroline Kennedy, JFK’s daughter, said about the California Democrat…
From Washington Times:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been named the recipient of the 2019 John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award.
Caroline Kennedy, the daughter of the late president, said in a statement Sunday that the California Democrat is “the most important woman in American political history.”
Pelosi is being honored because of her efforts to pass former President Barack Obama’s 2010 health care law and for helping Democrats reclaim control of the U.S. House during last year’s elections.
The “most important?” Based on what?
Pelosi wants to lower the voting age to 16. She says it’s imperative to “capture kids” while they are young.
Think about that for a second. What’s next?
If the voting age is eventually lowered to 16 when children are still highly politically ignorant, will 14 or 12 or 10 be that far off?
From Free Beacon:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) on Thursday said she has “always been for lowering the voting age to 16.”
Pelosi suggested it was important to get high schoolers involved in civics when they’re a captive audience.
Pelosi: “I myself, personally, not speaking for my caucus, I myself have always been for lowering the voting age to 16. 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.”
Now that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has completed his investigation into alleged Russia collusion by the Trump campaign in the 2016 presidential election, Democrats are throwing hissy fits left and right.
They didn’t get the result they were hoping for, which would’ve seen President Trump impeached – or even jailed.
Mueller’s report resulted in zero further indictments, meaning 45 and team have been vindicated once and for all.
Now, Dems are making some big moves…
From Daily Wire:
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) called an emergency conference call of Democratic leadership Saturday afternoon to discuss how to proceed amid news that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials, may not result in a presidential indictment.
“Today, we are having an emergency Caucus conference call at 3:00 p.m. E.T. to discuss the transmittal of the Mueller report to the Department of Justice (DOJ),” Pelosi wrote in a letter to colleagues issued Saturday morning, “While we do not know the substance of the report, we will have the relevant Committees of jurisdiction on the call today to update Members on where we go from here.”
Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) also issued an official statement on the matter, calling for “transparency” on the issue of Russian collusion, and demanding that the full Mueller report, once processed by the Department of Justice, be made public, and that any briefings on the subjct of Russian collusion be unclassified.
Pelosi also made clear, in her letter ahead of the call, that Democrats do not intend to let the issue of Russian collusion go, even if Mueller’s report — as suspected — shows no evidence of actual collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials to impact the outcome of the 2016 Presidential election.
