Pelosi Cancels State Of The Union

Published

on

One wonders just who in the heck House Speaker Nancy Pelosi thinks she is. She seems to have a very elevated opinion of her sorry self. She officially stated today in a letter that she would not allow President Trump to deliver his State of the Union address to Congress on January 29. Pelosi can go climb a tree.

“I am writing to inform you that the House of Representatives will not consider a concurrent resolution authorizing the president’s State of the Union address in the House Chamber until the government has been reopened,” Pelosi declared. I’d be very careful how you threaten President Trump.

President Trump’s response was perfect:

“I’m not surprised,” President Trump said to reporters in response to the news.

“It’s really a shame what’s happening with the Democrats,” he said.

“They have become radicalized. They don’t want to see crime stopped which we can easily do on the southern border,” he said.

“This will go on for a while (but) ultimately the American people will have their way because they want to see no crime,” he said.

Trump went on to tell reporters that he “will respond to it in a timely manner,” referencing Pelosi’s letter.

The letter from Pelosi came just hours after Trump dared her to follow through on her suggestion that the address be put off. Her suggestion that the address could not be held stems from alleged security concerns resulting from the government shutdown’s effect on protection personnel. Which, of course, is a bald-faced lie.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen smacked Pelosi for making such a suggestion and made it clear they had been prepping for the event for months. The SOTU will move forward regardless of leftists getting in the way and throwing hissy fits.

Trump referenced Nielsen’s statement in his Wednesday morning letter to Pelosi on the State of the Union, saying the Secret Service told him there is “absolutely no problem regarding security with respect to the event.” He also said, “Accordingly, there are no security concerns regarding the State of the Union Address. Therefore, I will be honoring your invitation.”

The president ended off with “it would be so very sad for our Country if the State of the Union were not delivered on time, on schedule, and very importantly, on location!”

POTUS should either give the SOTU at the Library of Congress and make historical references often during the speech or give it at the Presidio in San Francisco, Feinstein’s stomping grounds and Pelosi’s district. That would simply be hilarious and very apropos. As I understand it, the White House already has alternate plans in place for the address.

Pelosi’s cohort Representative Steny D. Hoyer, the majority leader, was quick to water down Pelosi’s letter:

“Representative Steny D. Hoyer, the majority leader, speaking to reporters before Mr. Trump sent his letter, said the United States Capitol Police would be fully prepared to provide security in the event that Mr. Trump delivered the address in the Capitol.

“She didn’t disinvite him,” Mr. Hoyer said of Ms. Pelosi. “What she said was she thought it would be appropriate to choose a different date. He has not done so.”

“But Representative Hakeem Jeffries, chairman of the House Democratic caucus, told reporters, that “unless the government is reopened, it’s highly unlikely that the State of the Union will take place on the floor of the House of Representatives.”’

Yes, she did disinvite Trump and if these are the battle lines that Pelosi and Schumer have drawn and are sticking by then the president should give better than he gets here. Don’t step into the ring with Trump if you aren’t ready to throw down. And even then, you aren’t going to beat a street fighter like Trump. I’m sure Pelosi is on his dance card.

Pelosi: ‘I Didn’t Know What Ilhan Omar Said When I Defended Her 9/11 Remarks’

Published

on

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) did a major backpedal today when she admitted she didn’t know the content of Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) recent remarks about 9/11. That didn’t stop her from defending Omar to the hilt in the wake of criticism from President Donald Trump. Pelosi gave an interview to CNN’s Christiane Amanpour where she rejected charges of anti-Semitism against Omar and pushed back against criticism that the Democrat Party isn’t doing enough to combat it.

“I don’t think the congresswoman is anti-Semitic. I wouldn’t even put those in the same category,” Pelosi told Amanpour in Ireland. “We have no taint of that [anti-Semitism],” she added. “And just because they want to accuse somebody of that doesn’t mean that we take that bait.” No one is making accusations… it’s all out in the open for everyone to see. This woman is delusional.

Then Pelosi went on to dismiss criticisms that she hasn’t done enough to defend Omar, conceding, “Until I talk to somebody, I don’t even know what was said.” Really? You didn’t take the time to even find out? “I do know that what the president did was not right,” she added. But not Omar. Trump did nothing wrong. In fact, he did the right thing in saying we should never forget 9/11 while Omar insulted all Americans by her “some people did something” slur.

From Breitbart:

“Omar is facing blowback for downplaying the September 11, 2001, terror attack, describing it last month private fundraiser for Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) as a day on which “some people did something,” before adding “and that all of us were starting to lose our civil liberties.”

“In reaction to the Minnesota Democrat’s remarks, President Trump shared a video to social media of Omar’s remarks and scenes of the World Trade Center engulfed in flakes shortly after it was attacked by radical Islamic terrorists. The video’s caption reads: “WE WILL NEVER FORGET!”

“She’s got a way about her that’s very, very bad, I think, for our country. I think she’s extremely unpatriotic and extremely disrespectful to our country,” the president said at an event in Minnesota on Monday.

“Several Democrats, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and 2020 Democrat candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, said President Trump was inciting violence against Omar by tweeting the clip. In a statement Saturday, Pelosi demanded the president remove the video and said Capitol Police are conducting a security assessment to safeguard Omar amid a growing number of death threats.

“Following the President’s tweet, I spoke with the Sergeant-at-Arms to ensure that Capitol Police are conducting a security assessment to safeguard Congresswoman Omar, her family, and her staff. They will continue to monitor and address the threats she faces,” Pelosi said.

“The President’s words weigh a ton, and his hateful and inflammatory rhetoric creates real danger. President Trump must take down his disrespectful and dangerous video,” she added.”

This knee-jerk defense of someone simply because they are in your political party is hypocritical and just wrong. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi scolded Trump for using the “painful images of 9/11 for a political attack” against the first-term Minnesota Democrat. So, pretend it did not happen when a leftist such as Omar intimates there were no terrorists involved and just brushes off nearly 3,000 deaths? I don’t think so.

From Fox News:

“Many Republicans and conservative outlets expressed outrage at Omar’s remarks. Fellow Democrats, including some who have disagreed with Omar in the past, defended her.

“First Member of Congress to ever describe terrorists who killed thousands of Americans on 9/11 as ‘some people who did something,'” tweeted Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas. The retired Navy SEAL lost his right eye in 2012 in an explosion in Afghanistan.

“Here’s your something,” the New York Post blared on its cover beneath a photograph of the flaming towers.”

Damn straight.

More:

“Several of the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates condemned Trump’s tweet.

“Former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke, said the Republican president’s tweet was an “incitement to violence” against Omar, who is Muslim-American, and others like her. O’Rourke, campaigning in South Carolina, likened the tweet to Trump’s rhetoric about Mexicans, described in the past by Trump as murderers and rapists. O’Rourke said “there is a cost and there is a consequence” to Trump’s comments.

“Warren, a Massachusetts senator, said Republican leaders in Congress “cannot take a pass on this, cannot look the other way and pretend it isn’t happening. It is happening. And those who don’t speak out in the Republican leadership are complicit in what he is doing. It’s wrong.”

“Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar noted that a New York man recently was charged with threatening Omar’s life.

“The video the president chose to send out today will only incite more hate,” Klobuchar said. “You can disagree with her words — as I have done before — but this video is wrong. Enough.”

“Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont said Omar “won’t back down to Trump’s racism and hate, and neither will we.”‘

What a bunch of anti-American schmucks. As for Pelosi, I think she knew exactly what Omar said and what she meant. She’s trying to straddle a fence here and is going to wind up impaled on it. Couldn’t happen to a more deserving feckless Marxist.

In First Year Bernie Made Over $1 Million He Donated Less Than 1% To Charity

Published

on

Vermont Senator and 2020 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders had the utter gall to go on Fox News to show off that he had released ten years of tax returns and to demand that President Trump do the same. Bolshevik Bernie is one socialist who has become a millionaire thanks to American capitalism but he doesn’t want the masses to prosper the way he did. His answer to all of this is a so-called 52 percent ‘wealth tax’.

As for charity, Sanders is lousy at it as most Democrats and leftists are. Sanders earned an average of $280,975 per year from 2009 through 2015. His income skyrocketed to $1,062,626 in 2016 due to sales of his best-selling book, “Our Revolution.” Ironic, no? He gave just $10,600 in charitable contributions in 2016, making up slightly less than one percent of his reported income and falling under the $21,365 average charitable contribution for Americans who earned $250,000 or more that year, according to the latest available IRS data.

The self-avowed Democratic-socialist purchased his third home in 2016. It is a $575,000 lake-front property in Vermont, according to Fox News. He’s also got a penchant for racy cars. Bernie’s an ‘elite’ socialist don’t ya know. During his 2016 presidential campaign and beyond, Sanders declared that wealth inequality was “the great moral issue of our time.” What a hypocrite.

The following year, Sanders donated $36,300 of his adjusted gross income of $1,131,925 to charity. That’s still a pittance. Behold the benefits of being a Democratic Socialist with no morals or ethics.

The filings showed that Sanders has been among the top 1 percent of earners in the U.S. According to the liberal-leaning Economic Policy Institute. Families in the U.S. earning $421,926 or more a year are part of this group.

From The Daily Caller:

“From 2009 through 2015, when Sanders was earning on average $280,975 per year, he contributed 2.06 percent to charity.

“His charitable giving rose slightly to 2.39 percent of his income from 2016 through 2018, when his average income soared to $918,615 per year.

“My wife and I do give money to charity, and we’re proud to do what we did,” Sanders said at a Fox News town hall Monday.

“A campaign spokesperson for Sanders said in a statement to the Daily Beast that while the senator believes voluntary charitable donations are commendable, they can’t make up government investment in social programs, which his platform calls for.

“Over the last decade, Bernie and Jane Sanders have donated more than $100,000 to charity. Their overall charitable giving rates have been roughly in line with the average rates in America as a whole,” Sanders’s campaign spokeswoman Arianna Jones said.

“In some years, they gave more than 3 or 4 percent of their income to charity. They have given to senior centers, low-income organizations, educational entities, and environmental and housing advocacy groups. They also believe that while voluntary charitable donations are commendable, they can never replace ongoing public investments in major social programs and services that improve people’s lives.”’

Sanders really meant what he said in 1981 when he told attendees at a local United Way fundraiser in Vermont, “I don’t believe in charities.” Sanders, then serving as mayor of Burlington, “went on to question the ‘fundamental concepts on which charities are based’ and contended that government, rather than charity organizations, should take over responsibility for social programs,” according to the New York Times.

Leftists like Sanders knocked Trump for charitable giving and he gave many times over what Sanders donated. Socialism is inherently anti-charity. It’s anti-job and anti-freedom. Charity is a form of love for your fellow man. Not something socialists are known for.
