It was very recently that Nancy Pelosi must have thought that it would be a good idea to take her act, that which we typically only get to see coming from the floor of the House, on the road allowing people to see firsthand just how much of political crackpot she truly is. And so it was then that on this past Monday we heard Pelosi tell those gathered at a Communist News Network (CNN) sponsored town hall that it’s simply too soon to be talking about impeaching President Donald Trump, even though some of her Democrat colleagues have been heard to be frequently using the word. She said, “It’s a reflection of what they’re hearing in their own constituencies.” And making her comment she mentioned a couple of her fellow Democrats, ‘Bonehead Al’ Green and ‘Mad Maxine’ Waters, and said, “But they know I don’t subscribe to that.”
And then in making even less than her typical amount of sense, Pelosi continued, “If you’re talking about impeachment, you’re talking about, what are the facts? Not, I don’t like him and I don’t like his hair and — you know, I think, what are the facts? I don’t like what he said about this. What are the facts that you would make a case on? What are the rules that he may have violated? If you don’t have that case, you’re just participating in more hearsay.” She said, “And that’s not the basis of — and we owe the American people the — I mean, just some stability in all of this. This is the time where he is supposed to be having his honeymoon. What a marriage. The honeymoon — the honeymoon of — so we watch and see what he’s going to do, what is his vision, how is he going to implement it, and the rest. And it’s been sloppy.”
Now, of course, Pelosi certainly is free to accuse the president, and his administration of being sloppy, but she might want to remember that old adage about people and glass houses. Because there came a point at this same town hall gathering that she might have wished to have been a bit more prepared. Because the highlight of the night came when Jake Lee, a small business owner from West Hollywood, Calif., stood up to ask a question. Mr. Lee asked, “Good evening, madam leader. Before the election on November 8, your side of the aisle were asking for the former head of the FBI to resign.” And it was then that he went on to ask, “Now that he has been let go, why the sudden and selective outrage from your side of the aisle?” It would seem to be perfectly reasonable question, worthy of a reasonable and honest answer.
And yet, as is usually the case, our esteemed Ms. Pelosi seemed to be have been caught off guard and became a bit befuddled. “Some people were asking to be let go,” she said rather inexplicably (presumably she meant asking that former FBI Director James Comey be let go). But she went on, her hands flailing about wildly and her eyes growing wide as saucers. She went on to say, “I said I thought that it wasn’t a good — well suit — he wasn’t well suited to the heat that comes with the job, but I never said that he should be fired.” Now while that may be technically true, her comments made back on Nov. 2 require a liberal interpretation. On CNN that day, she said, “Maybe he’s not in the right job.” She went on to add, “I think that we have to just get through this election and just see what the casualties are along the way.”
Now if that’s not a veiled threat, then I guess I don’t know what is. And many people in her party were already calling for Comey to be canned. But I digress. It was then that Pelosi said, “And for the president of the United States to fire with his own self-admission that he didn’t like — he was tired of the Russia-Trump probe, is, uh, is, uh, uh, distressing. It’s distressing. We believe in the FBI as being an independent law enforcement agency, to be respected, and not to be fired by president because he’s tired of an investigation they’re doing.” Then the former House speaker proceeded to launch into her old talking points about how Trump is a danger and a menace to the world, about how great Obamacare is, and yadda, yadda, yadda. She once again made very little sense, but isn’t that really what we’ve come to expect from her?
But look, as much as the Democrats might wish there to be, there are simply no facts to support impeachment or the charge of obstruction of justice. And if we’re going to use Obummer as our gauge in determining what behavior does, or does not, constitute an impeachable offense then there’s really very little Trump can do to earn him the same honor that has only bestowed on to two men, with both being Democrats. But that said, such charges could be applied to Mr. Comey. There was a ten month investigation (so far) over allegations of collusion with the Russians with no crime and no evidence to support any criminal charge. Yet, Trump is never declared vindicated by our state-controlled media or those in the Democrat Party. Meanwhile, the never ending criminal conduct from within the deep state continues uninvestigated.
Democrats and their many cohorts out in the state-controlled media have been so busy pushing their phony Trump colluding with Russia story that they seem to have forgotten to cover-up how it was that America hating Obummer changed NSA rules allowing classified intercepted info to be, unmasked and then distributed to lackeys who leaked it to the left wing media who then printed it all to undermine Trump. Meanwhile it was Hitlery who colluded with the Obummer White House, the DNC as well as with the state-controlled media. And it was John Podesta who likely violated federal law when he failed to disclose his stock holdings in a Kremlin-funded company while the Clintons received large sums of money directly and indirectly from Russian officials while Hitlery was Secretary of State….and the left couldn’t care less.
It is obviously a given that the district that spawned Ms. Pelosi is far from being the only district in the country that would seem to be populated by those who insist upon, for whatever the reason, electing those who are more interested in their own career than they are the folks back him. I mean the list of examples reads like a who’s who of the Democrat Party with more than a few RINOs tossed in for good measure. It would easy to list the names here, but we’re all too familiar with who they are, and doing so would really be nothing more than a complete waste of space. And over in the Senate things are no better, with conservatives in the definite minority. And sadly, it’s as long as a ‘bigly’ segment of the electorate remains ignorant that people like Pelosi will continue to be allowed to worm their way into positions of power.
And it’s in closing that I would like to offer up a little food for thought. Now we all know, or should know, that those whom we send off to Washington are pretty grossly overpaid while also being seriously underworked. And it’s even after they leave office that they continue to be the receiving end of a ‘pension’ that most of us can only dream about. Our country is broke, so why is it that we, the taxpayers, should be forced to pay these individuals who have used their time in office as nothing more than an opportunity to get rich? So with that being the case should it be unreasonable for us to expect that once they have left public office they should no longer receive any taxpayer money. Few go to Washington to serve, and fewer still can be trusted to do what’s best for the country. Sadly, most are like Ms. Pelosi.
