House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer are calling on Vice President Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment and immediately remove President Trump from office, blaming him for inciting the violent protesters who vandalized and broke into the Capitol. Pelosi said, “The gleeful desecration of the U.S. Capitol, which is the temple of our American democracy, and the violence targeting Congress are horrors that will forever stain our nation’s history — instigated by the president of the United States — that’s why this is such a stain.”


She’s right, Washington is as stained as an old pair of farm overalls, but those mud stains didn’t all appear yesterday. Just as a reminder:

Throughout spring and summer of 2020, up until polls showed it was hurting Democrats, Pelosi and Schumer were publicly supportive of violent “protesters” who rioted, burned and looted America’s cities nationwide, including Washington, DC. They not only attacked and vandalized national monuments and federal buildings in the nation’s capital, they staged longterm assaults on local and federal officers, seized private property, threatened citizens, and laid siege to a federal courthouse in Portland, throwing Molotov cocktail-like fire bombs into it. That courthouse is just as much federal property and a temple of American democracy as the Capitol is.

Pelosi’s response to all that was to support the violent protesters, dismiss concerns about old buildings, and smear officers who were trying to protect federal property as Nazi “stormtroopers.” When called on it, she tried to split hairs by claiming she only said they were “acting like stormtroopers.” Well, that’s different!

I am upset with Trump’s rhetoric, too, and I’ve condemned the violent hotheads who set back the conservative cause with their illegal behavior. But I have zero interest in listening to Pelosi, Schumer or any other Democrat who spent much of 2020 egging on rioters and attacking police piously lecture me about the dangers of irresponsible rhetoric from public officials. Their “moral high ground” is a muddy sinkhole.

    Mr. Huckabee, I could not agree with you more. While Portland burned, Seattle smashed to pieces, and other cities attacked by Antifa, Black Lives Matter and useless, insane, un-American rioters, Pelosi, Schumer and the other "turn your heads away and not notice the destructive" Demos. When did politics get so evil? I think back to the days of Pres. Eisenhower and Kennedy, both Democrats whom I voted for and they were the last Dems I voted for. Not because the Dems were so bad then, I just preferred the Republican politicians. Pres. Trump is one of a kind, to be sure; never liked his bullying, but one thing I know for sure - he loves America and wanted so much to make her shine. Sure, there can be arguments, nasty comments about the opposition but never the ugliness so prevalent in politics today. While the Oh, Mr. Huckabee, will our country ever be able to hold her head high again? I pray every day it will be so.

    Video evidence of election fraud, audio evidence of election fraud, 1000’s of sworn affidavits and the Supreme Court, those people are not Supreme or Honorable, they sat on their hands stating procedural problems. Roberts even said he was worried about riots. Shouldn’t he be worrying about the constitution, the very fabric that these Justices are now using as a floor mat? The courts have failed us, any election integrity we had is gone, the MSM has failed us, now the GOP has failed us too. When the Patriot Party is started, I’ll be there.

    This nightingale Nancy Pelosi should have been impeached long ago. I'm not an American but i have visited all the states of USA and during that time i knew a lot of people having beautiful friendships. Democrats worldwide are weakly and their politicians are doing nothing else than occupy their chairs. Biden shouldn't have elected because he will sell USA to the Cinese as many democrats before.

    I have been sick since Pelosi first spoke hatred towards President Trump before he was even elected. I dont agree with President Trumps way of speaking, sending messages etc. One should always resist the opportunity to keep their mouth shut. But no way did OUR president incite violence. Nancy Pelosi, Waters, Murray, Schumer, Nadler, Harris, Biden and the list continues with Obama but there is more. Trump has them running scared. They want everything he has be discounted as lies. I dont see it as lies. I never heard President say vandalize, destroy, riot. He has for months called our govenors to get their cities in order. Offered the National Guard and federal assistance to get these rioters under co trolls. They all said screw you we will not. I support Trump, I dont believe we had a untainted election. There is too much information that creates doubt. We need to have the judges be honest. Listen to the people who witnessed these actions that occured at the polls. They havent truley listened or cared to listen. Shame on them.

    Pelosi has Twisted the protest. Unfortunately someone was killed as well as others This is nothing like what was going on during the summer and she condoned every bit of it! As well as her constituents. She has too much power, She needs to be removed from office! This is not about Trump, this was about them wiping their butts on our constitution.
    Thank you,

    Nancy Pelosi is the biggest stain on our country and she is the one who should be removed from office and never allowed to run for another office of any kind.

    Oh, okay. I was trying to figure out who "stained Nancy" was. But I realize now that there should have been a comma between those two words. In other words, "Washington is stained, Nancy." And it certainly is.

    I am totally disgusted with the hypocrisy of the liberals, with their double speak. This demonstration on Jan 6 did not surprise me in the least, in fact it could hav not been scripted any better in an effort to smear conservatives. Unfortunately, there were some hotheads that did not consider what the ramifications of their actions would entail.

    I think it is atrocious the way Pres Trump has/is being treated all these years. One can't predict how another is going to interpret what one says. There are things over the years I haven't agreed with him about but for the most part I, along with 70+ millions) feel he has been the best president and the country was better off for him. All these politician, both democrat and republicans, need to look at themselves before they start maligning the President!!!

    They pushed Trump against a wall far too long. The Capitol protest was egged on and I would not be surprised if they were in on that too. They had gas mask ready for crying out loud.

    People should call it what it was....a bunch of idiots that felt disenfranchised so they broke in and took a bunch of selfies.... Some tried to steal things but it was NOT even close to qualifying as a coup attempt.... It wasn’t even a good bar fight in some parts of the country.

    Trump did not cause the Capitol violence. I'm going to stop following you if you don't retract that.

    Those who stormed the capital were infiltrated by antifa and blm. Some were supporters but not all. Just there to give the group a bad name

    If President Trump didn’t keep this in front of everyone we would just dismiss the fraud and go on letting the left destroy us and our county. He said nothing on Wed to incite the crowd to storm the capitol. No one is going to convince me that the left didn’t have some insurgents put in place to cause chaos! Christians are told by our God to pray for our Government but maybe we should ask God to help us defeat our crooked government the way that Joshua fought the battle Jericho. Can you imagine if we walked around the capital for 7 days banging on pans!
