Mitch McConnell Appears To Troll Nancy
Pelosi With A Single Pen

Original Article

Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell appeared to troll House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday as senators were sworn in for the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump. McConnell had each senator sign the oath book with a single pen, a day after Pelosi came under fire for smiling and handing out special pens to members following the signing of the articles of impeachment. This is in contrast to the impeachment of President Bill Clinton, where each senator signed the book with a different pen. The move did not go unnoticed by pundits, who rushed to point out the contrast on social media. "No souvenir pens here. Called up in alphabetical order,

Comments:

Fancy Schmancy Nancy is being mocked about those bullet-shaped vanity pens. Good.

Pelosi popped up on the screen for a presser after the glitz signing and all I could understand and saw was incoherent prattle. The hag who thinks she's queen is off her rocker what a stupid buffoon.

Did any of you folks notice that the souvenir pens Nancy passed out were very symbolic of her statement of 'one way or another we are getting him out': The brass front third of those pens looked almost exactly like a .223 / 5.56X45 round. I wish we could post images here in the comments, but a non-google search engine should be able to turn up a few images for you, if you haven't seen already.

I certainly hope Mitch corrals the entire Republicans in the Senate, and review the information that the House presented, and maybe have Dershowitz be present to explain the Constitutionality of what they are supposed to do NOW, after the articles were presented. Believe they only are able to discuss and vote on just THOSE two articles, as they were presented, which is what the Democrats are counting on since they didn't allow Trump to defend himself, or allow any exculpatory information to be presented either. Don't even believe Nadler has granted that 1 day of calling witnesses, per House Rules, to the Republicans in the House either. Did they all violate House Rules, by presenting those articles without allowing the House Republicans their rightful day of calling witnesses?

Tuesday, Jody Jones was in attendance for President Donald Trump’s State of the Union Address in honor of his brother, Rocky Jones, who was killed in California by a criminal illegal immigrant under the state’s sanctuary policy. Immediately following Trump’s speech, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was seen on camera ripping up Trump’s State of the Union speech, (Snip) “It felt like she ripped our hearts out — everybody there, all the guests, we couldn’t believe it,” Jones stated. “Look, I don’t care how you feel about somebody. That was probably the most disrespectful thing I’ve ever seen in my life because when she did that it tore us up.

At Tuesday night’s State of the Union, President Trump stood triumphant on his record, Democrats sat and glowered with impotent rage, and the contrast was breathtaking… In Iowa, the Democratic Party cannot not even competently count 172,000 votes, and the ones that have been counted point to a win by Boy Mayor and Jurassic Marxist. On the dais in the U.S. Capitol, “Master Strategist” Nancy Pelosi, sat behind the president making childish faces during his State of the Union address, and then closed out the night by physically ripping up her copy of the speech, an act so childish there are no words.

CNN contributor Van Jones warned fellow panelists, and Democrats in general, on Tuesday evening that President Donald Trump was helping African-Americans “in real life” and reaching out to them for their vote in 2020. (Snip) What he was saying to African-Americans can be effective. You may not like it, but he mentioned HBCUs [historically black colleges and universities] — our black colleges have been struggling for a long time, a bunch of them have gone under — he threw a lifeline to them, in real life, in his budget. He talked about that. He talked about the criminal justice reform. He talked about opportunity zones. He talked about school choice.

And in a bitterly divisive move after Trump completed the address, Pelosi petulantly tore up a print-out of the speech. The president and his nemesis got off to an awkward start when he either refused to shaker her hand, or didn’t notice that she had extended her hand. (Snip)Throughout the speech, Pelosi looked at times, bored, confused, and angry. She mumbled constantly to herself and shuffled the speech papers in front of her, which she glanced at from time to time.

In a clear sign of desperation; as President Trump approval numbers jump significantly while the impeachment effort fails; and seeming to accept that Democrat 2020 ambitions are evaporating in front of her eyes; Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi tears up the printed copy of President Trump’s State of the Union remarks at the conclusion of the speech.(Video) Quite a remarkable display of pettiness and partisan hate. Meanwhile, it creates a strong contrast as President Trump presents an optimistic outlook for a bright future… This loser stunt by Pelosi is such an act of desperation it looks ridiculous.

Rush Limbaugh is going to attempt to broadcast tomorrow (Thursday). I would strongly urge all those who have listened and learned from El Rushbo to tune in. Given the rapid nature of the cancer diagnosis our time with Rush is short. As a beacon when needed most, Rush Limbaugh has guided minds, inspired hearts and touched the lives of many. Last night President Trump honored Mr. Limbaugh for his years of excellence in broadcasting, his unwavering love of country and his numerous charitable efforts. Presenting Mr. Limbaugh with the Medal of Freedom was a very special moment in recognition of a very special man.

President Donald Trump’s rousing State of the Union address to a divided Congress emboldened his supporters with bold support of conservative ideas, overtly reached out to independents on the basis of successful implementation of domestic policy goals, and in so doing enraged the Democrat left on what was already a difficult day for them. Trump highlighted the booming economy, articulated his foreign policy, and tied his vision for the American future to its heroic past and frontier spirit. He also gave a scholarship in real time, bestowed a Medal of Freedom in real time, and dramatically reunited a family with their soldier husband and father, making for the most emotional State

There is no shortage of blame to go around for the impeachment follies that wasted America’s time for the past five months. To be fair, congressional Democrats own the lion’s share of this blame, but they could not have done it alone. This ridiculous effort would never have gotten off the ground had Democrats not been confident that a compliant news media would play lap dog for them, licking up lies at every turn. It was bad enough that most of the news media trumped up minor developments as major revelations throughout the process. In many cases, they simply failed to apply the slightest bit of incredulity when House Democrats made

While the majority of Democrats sat as Trump commended Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., for his work on opportunity zones, Sinema stood and applauded her colleague. Opportunity zones were created in tandem with the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. They provide tax advantages for certain investments in lower income areas. “Jobs and investments are pouring into nine thousand previously neglected neighborhoods, thanks to opportunity zones. A plan spearheaded by Senator Tim Scott as part of our great Republican tax cuts,” Trump said as Sinema

A key point of reference is ABC reporter Kendall Karson revealing the DNC came in and took over the tabulations of the Iowa Caucus result prior to this release. “One Democratic official I spoke to is being told that the DNC is “taking over” the accounting of results. The official said this that to their knowledge, this has never happened before.” (link) This is important because it highlights that The Club decided what partial results, from what locations, showing what outcomes, the Club wants to put forth. Put another way, the DNC is releasing a specific 62% of the result to generate a specific Iowa narrative. So what did they release:

President Trump told network anchors Tuesday that he thinks Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will run against Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and “kick his ass” in the 2022 Democratic primary in New York. “I think she is going to kick his ass,” Mr. Trump predicted at a White House lunch that was otherwise off-the-record. The comment was reported by Fox News anchor Bret Baier. Mr. Schumer is up for reelection two years from now. Ms. Ocasio-Cortez is a freshman lawmaker who unseated veteran Rep. Joe Crowley, a former member of the House Democratic leadership team, in the party primary.

Wow, that was one hell of a State of the Union Address. President Trump seized the center with a powerful, patriotic and utterly centrist speech. And then House Speaker Nancy Pelosi reinforced his message with her oh-so-symbolic ripping up of the text. What, other than channeling the alienation of the Democratic base from the great American center, was she thinking? This was the very best of Trump — generous, bipartisan (with a few barbs) and good-spirited. He not only got congressional Democrats to stand and cheer, but he also credited the legislators in the room for working together across party lines to do right by America.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi apparently made tiny tears into her copy of President Trump’s State of the Union address— so that her speech-ripping moment could go off without a hitch. As Trump introduced cancer-stricken radio host Rush Limbaugh—who received the Medal of Freedom during the speech—Pelosi could be seen grabbing the pages off the table. Video shows her making what seemed to be a tearing motion and then placing the pages back on the table. Photos of the sheets of paper show them face down on the table with small slits on the side, near where Pelosi would eventually rip them into pieces.

(Snip) This odd man, so overbrimming with conscience and full of consultation with the Almighty, has finally revealed his purpose in returning to public life. His incandescent conscience managed to be a self-enriching asset-stripper at Bain and Company.

But he could not manage his spirit of vengeance. As an authentically scriptural man, Mitt Romney would know that it is the “God of Vengeance, God to whom vengeance belongs.”

To rescue these students, 18 States have created school choice in the form of Opportunity Scholarships.”
