Pelosi is losing control

June 30, 2019

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi may posture for the cameras about how she’s “done” with President Trump, but she’s the one who’s looking done for. 

In one of the most confusing political stunts of all time, House Democrats spent over a month attacking Trump over the conditions for detained illegal immigrants at the border while blocking a dozen attempts by House Republicans to pass a bill to spend $4.5 billion to help.  After the Senate passed a bill Trump supported, House Democrats came up with their own, which would have helped detainees while doing nothing to strengthen border enforcement, and just made matters worse by attracting more illegal entrants. Trump threatened a veto, which of course earned more public scorn and name-calling from the left.

But a funny thing happened on Thursday: with a potential tsunami of bad PR bearing down on them if they left for July 4th vacation break without helping all those illegal immigrants they’d been crying crocodile tears for, the more reasonable Democrats (those that still remain in office) caved, defied Pelosi and voted with the Republicans to pass the Senate bill Trump wanted – the one that includes both humanitarian aid and stronger border security.

This may be only one bill that will go largely unnoticed between the “debate” coverage and the vacation break.  But it shows that Pelosi’s already tenuous grip on control of her members is slipping fast.  She was already having trouble keeping the leftist agitators like AOC in line, and they’re now hopping mad over this vote.  Now, the remaining moderates have rebelled from the mindless “Resistance” stance that demanded they oppose everything Trump asked for, even when it was both popular and necessary. 

I’m sure we’re all happy that Congress will not be in session next week.  But I bet nobody will be happier about not having to come into the office than Nancy Pelosi.

    Dear John Callahan,

    You wrote, "but one of several things I still don't understand is WHY those Stoned California voters, that CONTINUE to elect her term after term."

    The answer to your question lies in your question itself. The key word is "stoned".

    You're welcome.

    Huck, it is Shocking that Queen Nancy is upset ( ask me if I care ), but one of several things I still don't understand is WHY those Stoned California voters, that CONTINUE to elect her term after term.

    You are so right...our so called leaders are not leaders. I was amazed today on FB when as a Christian I am the blame for Trump being in there and ruining America. I am thankful Trump not Hillary is there. I pray for America and truth will come out. Thank you for what you do.

    It is time the obstruction stops and it looks like there may be ‘some’ people doing their ‘actual’ jobs for once!
