Reader comment on "...full of Mitt"
Thanks to all who continue to comment on Mitt Romney's foolhardy, ego-driven and fantasy-based vote to convict and remove the President of the United States, his political nemesis. Here's one particularly astute (and concise!) reader reply:
Oh Mitt.....the Dems will play him like a fiddle and then break the strings.
Just in case you actually needed one more reason to take the House of Representatives away from the Democrats and send them back home to think about what they’ve done, they will vote today on the Protecting the Right to Organize Act. With that innocuous-sounding name, it’s expected to pass easily.
What it would actually do is take California’s disastrous Assembly Bill 5 national. That’s the new law that’s throwing thousands of independent contract workers, from Uber drivers to jazz musicians, out of work by declaring them “employees” and demanding that anyone who hires them provide them with union-style benefits. It’s heavily backed by the unions under the guise of “protecting workers,” but what it really does is eliminate competition, consumer choice, worker freedom and, of course, jobs. Fortunately, it will never pass the Senate, but just the idea that something this stupid and overreaching could pass the House at all should send a chill down your spine.
When you go to the polls this November, remember: Uber drivers and musicians don’t deserve to lose their jobs, Democratic Congress members do.
Just For Laughs: Kurt Schlichter recaps “Three Glorious Days of Democrat Agony.” While it’s not nice to laugh at the misfortunes of others, there are few other writers who can make schadenfreude this funny.
Much of the news was dominated Wednesday by talk about Nancy Pelosi’s childish tantrum where she tore up her copy of President Trump’s State of the Union Address behind him at the end of the speech. I don’t want to talk too much more about it because I believe it was a planned stunt, calculated to take the focus off the many, many important things Trump said in that speech, and so far, it’s been working.
While I think it’s good for everyone to take a moment to reflect on just how petulant, childish and emotional the House Democrats have been, there are adults trying to get important things accomplished, and we should pay more attention to that. So with the Senate drop-kicking their ludicrous “impeachment” articles into the landfill of history, it seems a perfect time to do a quick wrap-up of Nasty Nancy stories, then wash my hands of her and her Peanut Gallery’s childish antics.
First of all, there’s the juvenile “He started it!” argument over Trump “snubbing” her proffered hand shake at the beginning of the speech. I’ve watched the tape repeatedly; it seems clear that he was already turning back around before he would’ve seen her extended hand. Besides, he also didn’t shake Mike Pence’s hand. Unlike Nancy Pelosi, Trump had more important things on his mind at the time than petty personal grievances and bruised egos.
Second, a review of the tape shows that among her many distracting ticks that made her look like a hyperactive three-year-old fidgeting through a long sermon, Pelosi surreptitiously began tearing the edges of the pages to make it easier to rip them in half on camera later, a sure indicator that it was a planned stunt to get attention and not some spontaneous protest.
If you don’t see it, here’s a still that makes the pre-torn marks crystal clear.
As always, the Babylon Bee was immediately on the case:
If the Democrats thought Pelosi's ripping-up-the-speech snit fit and sitting and stewing sourly and silently through great news for America and moving tributes to heroes were going to help them with voters, guess again. Even many Democratic voters were repulsed by their selfish, unpatriotic and juvenile behavior. CSPAN asked for call-in comments, and they were brutal. One man said he’d been a Democrat for 70 years but he was so disgusted, he’d probably stay home rather than vote this year, adding, “They looked like a bunch of dadgum idiots sitting there."
It went over even worse with the special guests who were honored during the speech and disrespected by Pelosi and her pack of mean girls and boys.
Mitch McConnell poured cold water on her stunt when he followed the impeachment acquittal vote by suggesting Pelosi might try to tear up Trump’s acquittal like she tore up his State of the Union speech. He then immediately scheduled confirmation votes on more Trump-appointed judges.
Personally, I would suggest that next year, Trump print his State of the Union on a New York City phone book and toss that to Pelosi -- except that next year, I expect Trump to still be there but a Republican to be sitting in the Speaker’s chair. I do think it would be great, though, if Trump opened his next rally by taking out two pieces of paper and saying, “Impeachment Article One” (rip it slowly in two and toss), “Impeachment Article Two” (rip and toss.)
And now that our long national tantrum is finally over and the spoiled children have been spanked and sent to bed, let the grown-ups get back to making America great again!
Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz announced that he’s filing an ethics complaint against Pelosi for her flagrant violation of decorum as defined under clauses 1 and 2 of House Rule XXIII, as well a potential criminal violation of 18 USC 2071, the federal law against destroying or mutilating any official government record. Ironically echoing Pelosi’s own rhetoric about Trump, Gaetz declared, “Nobody is above the law. She must be held accountable.” Of course, I doubt that anything will come of this. After all, if destroying official federal records were illegal, Hillary Clinton would’ve been held to account for it, right?
Well, I spoke too soon about the adults getting back to working on helping America: Rep. Jerrold Nadler is already working on a second quixotic lunge at impeaching Trump.
Nadler says that when you have a lawless politician, you have to do whatever it takes to protect the Constitution. He’s absolutely right. That’s why it’s imperative that all of us do whatever it takes to kick the Democrats out of the House next November, put law-respecting adults back in charge, and send Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, Jerry Nadler and their ilk off to the Retirement Home for Leftist Political Hacks, aka MSNBC.
Excellent point by Andrew J. Siascia at Western Journal: the same leftists who want us to put them in charge of all Americans’ health care are publicly rooting for Rush Limbaugh to die of cancer because they disagree with his political views. Isn’t that a comforting thought? But don’t worry, I’m sure they plan to offer excellent public health care in the gulags Bernie’s field organizers are fantasizing about sending Republicans to.
