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.

    Thank you for the information regarding the passing of the illegal immigration bill; the very same bill that the President wanted. I did not hear this on the news.

    There has to be some moderate “ American” Democratic congressmen left in America that will consider what’s right for America than what’s politically correct for Pelosi!!!

    This is not the country I grew up in. 75 years old and a Vietnam Vet who kissed the ground when he returned home. We knew and respected our Congressman and Senator. I went to school with his son who also became a senator. I don’t have the same respect for him, however. Discourse was civil back then, but there were shenanigans. Now our reps have no respect for us the voters. They are the
    ruling clan and believe they know what is best for us. They are wrong and completely misunderstand President Trump. His behavior and tweets are often abhorent, but the message is clear and his delivery of economic results are spectacular. I can take his bad manners with the positive results, especially when I see the field of wannabe presidents, including Hillary. The RNC and our reps have to stay strong in the face of this agregious assault on our democracy.

    PELOSI has arrived at the end of her time to be effective. Her free rides to California at the expense of taxpayers is disgusting and should be over!!!

    Nancy Pelosi, for all of those Botox treatments, cannot hide the fact that she is too old to stay in politics. Kind of like Bader Ginsburg, it's over. Face it.

    I am sick and tired and positively disgusted and revolted with the games the Democrats are playing. They're spending my hard-earned money that went to DC in taxes and they're doing nothing constructive for this country. I wish they would go to Venezuela for a week or any number of other countries and just live there for a week maybe three. Three weeks in China and some of the countryside ought to cure them all of what they're trying to push down the throats of every citizen of this country. Their greed, desire for money, desire for fame and an easy life makes me nauseous. It's time we voted them all out of office and instituted term limits. I wish they had to pay for their health insurance and had what most of us have. Maybe they ought to survive on Social Security too!
    It is absolutely time for their wasteful behavior and extremely hurtful behavior stops.
    there have been quite a few presidents I detest it in my seven decades plus of life but I never did anything remotely like what's going on in DC in the house. Grow up.

    Why has it never been mentioned on the news that Nancy Pelosi's son Paul also sits on the board of a Ukranian energy company (Unicoil? or something coil) and she even recorded part of a promotional video for the company. I actually watched the video....not heresay!
    Should she be able to profit from her position as leader of the house? Why doesn't anyone care about the crooked democrats? Why do we accept their holier than thou attitude year after year after year. SO sick of them

    Pelosi has definitely gone crazy. She jumped onto the impeachment bandwagon without proof of any wrongdoing by President Trump, which she had said she would not do. She is further dividing the country by claiming that AG Barr has 'gone rogue'.
    Now she has to try to impeach without letting the president or any Republicans
    get in any questions or defense. She also has to continue to oppose everything Trump wants to do, like the USMCA, and other important issues. All of these things work against the prospects for the Dems in the next election, but she has no choice but to continue in her demented path.

    Democrats are acting like the high school tough guy that picks a fight (afterschool in the park)
    with a new guy. All day the posturing , opinions, peripheral chit chat raises the tension level. But after 1 PM when school is 2 hours from ending the real pressure builds on the 'tough guy'...he starts to see where his big mouth got him. He hears about the fast right cross the other guy had in junior high, etc. By the school bell the tough guy all of a sudden has a dental appointment and
    it's a no show. Dems in a big hurry to make a ruckus, get some headlines, please some base donors..before POTUS, Atty Gen and "The Mayor"....says "School's us what ya got.."

    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.
