A threat to democracy #8: Nancy Pelosi.
When you finish reading this article, ask yourself this: how in the world is Nancy Pelosi still serving? House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has been in the political field for almost 50 years, first serving as a Democratic National Convention representative for California for 20 years and entering the House of Congress in 1987 for California’s eighth district.
Enough biography material. First of all, she has no place in politics whatsoever.
After the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (H.R 1) was passed, she labeled the bill as ‘armageddon‘. She also described the tax cuts as ‘crumbs’ and ‘pathetic’. This goes to show that Pelosi knows nothing about economics on an extremely basic level.
It shows that she doesn’t understand how the 99.7% of American businesses that are privately-held — or the more than 95 percent that aren’t C-Corporations — make decisions. In simple terms, this will help both small businesses exceed and grow and help big name corporations move to the United States and bring jobs. So no, these tax cuts are not just ‘crumbs’.
Pelosi has been all for passing the infamous DREAM Act for the past 17 years, but her inactiveness has led to her Dreamer advocates turn on her. In September of 2017, she was shouted at and shut down by ‘immigrant youth’ due to her failure for not doing anything for Dreamers. Not once, but twice.
During a CNN town hall, Laura Wilkerson, a mother whose son was tied up and burned by a Dreamer, asked Pelosi why she prioritizes illegal immigrants first and not Americans. Pelosi confidently responded. “In our sanctuary cities, our people are not disobeying the law.” That’s a rather contradicting statement.
Sanctuary cities protect non law-abiding illegal immigrants in states like California, Vermont, and Texas.
Her own party doesn’t even support her. “I think you’d have to be an idiot to think we could win the House with Pelosi at the top,” Filemon Vela (D-TX) said. Rep. Kathleen Rice (D-N.Y.) joined Vela’s criticism of Pelosi. “There comes a time when every leader has to say, ‘For the good of the order and for the betterment of the party, it’s time for me to step aside.'”
Not to mention, her level of obnoxiousness is outstanding. She said numerous times “Donald Trump is not going to be President of the United States” and continuously said on PBS she couldn’t wait to look forward to Hillary Clinton leading the White House.
Nancy Pelosi needs to retake science as she thinks fossil fuels and natural gases are different.
When Obama’s unconstitutional Affordable Care Act was being considered, Nancy Pelosi said, “We have to pass the bill so you can find out what’s in it.” She wanted Americans to be surprised as to what was in the bill.
Last but not least, she’s a liar. After ObamaCare was implemented, she held a press conference and said “I don’t remember saying that everyone in the country would have a lower premium.” However, she did. On MSNBC’s ‘Meet the Press’, she stated, “Everybody will have lower rates, better quality care and better access” as a result of the Affordable Care Act.
She knew in 2012 the Democrats didn’t have control of the gavel in the House of Representatives and was completely clueless.
During a debate about immigration in 2014, she walked over to then-speaking representative Tom Marino (R-PA) and called him an ‘insignificant person’. No one knew what she was doing.
Going back to her ‘education’ on economics, she constantly criticizes the top 1%…while being the top 1%, having a net worth of over $196,000,000.
She also thinks George W. Bush is still President after she said there’s nothing that the Democrats can work with ‘President Bush on’ during the Russia probe. Even Maxine Waters was shocked at her comments.
And she still doesn’t want to talk about her dear friend Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi incident. “Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi…can we talk about something else?”
It’s ‘too hard‘ for her to say ‘President Trump’ because it’s offensive.
Pelosi doesn’t even know who John Kasich is. Instead of saying he was governor of Ohio, she thought he was governor of Illinois.
The House Minority Leader stands for 8 hours straight for illegal aliens, but not more than 1 minute for Americans. Astonishing.
