Nancy Pelosi ‘pre-ripped’ pages of
Trump’s SOTU speech, video shows

Original Article

Posted By: Ribicon, 2/5/2020 6:29:15 PM

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.

Comments:

Preplanned stagecraft; Pelosi's not smart enough to come up with that on her own. The corrupt witch should be removed as Speaker, if not from office entirely.

It may have been staged but it’s an epic fail. She should be removed from her position for conduct unbecoming of a Congresswoman. Kick her out!

An Italian fishwife has more dignity, intelligence and grace than this ugly old much face lifted, injected, trussed and yanked howling old partisan hyena!!! Imagine a Republican 'speaker' doing the same??!!! Racism!! No respect for the office!!! Etc. Recall the guy who yelled out 'liar' when the empty barrel, aka, the community organizing punk was droning on about something or other and no one knew what he was babbling about?!?!?! Right away the hyena put through a new law about respect or whatever. Hmmm, perhaps we should dig it up and hold her feet to it!?!?!?

Whatever "it" was, Nancy managed to insult ALL Americans. The SOTU is about the country and it's people. The President is the "messenger". I for one can forget about the fool known as the Speaker of the House. I can't and won't forget the "Good News" President Trump so eloquently delivered to the country. KAG!! 2020!!

Pre-planned. Fake but accurate "outrage". I do find it interesting so many from the Sixties and early Seventies, who opposed "the man", and didn't trust authority and government, now seem to want more government than every before, and want you to trust in their idea of authority. But, their ulterior motive for a growing government is creating more workers for the government who then vote for the party that wants to grant them higher wages, better benefits, and cushy pensions - at everyone else's expense.

Her mental and emotional age probably doesn’t reach fourteen. Presumably Nancy had her original teeth then. But, don’t forget to order your genuine Nancy Pelosi Genuine Replica Dentures to place on your coffee table!.

She and her whole crew are so busy plotting, planning, putting so much effort into theatrics; think what our congress could accomplish if that energy was spent in more positive endeavors. But, that would require them to have our country's best interests at heart, so that's a no-go.

Be sure to tell all your Democrat friends and acquaintances that a vote for their "popular" representative is a vote for Nancy as speaker. That's the first vote their representative is required to do when arriving in DC and so is that what they really wish their vote to accomplish?

Not hers to rip up, that was part of the Congressional archives. It was not only staged and pre-planned in advance so it looked like she did it spontaneously out of disgust but Pelosi's office tipped off the media too so they would keep the main cameras on her and not cut away to a close-up of Trump or pan the crowd. Re-watch the tape and you'll see that she looks up and pauses for a moment to see if the red light on the camera is looking at her. That's how she doesn't "hate" Trump. If she did hate Trump, I guess she would have knifed him while his back was turned. Imagine Paul Ryan doing that to Obama or Newt doing it to Clinton. The media outcry! Now? Just crickets.

She said she had to do it because the speech shredded the truth so she shredded the speech. What an insult to Americans. The epic stories of victory, heroism, and achievement were true. The data about the economy were government records, not Trump's opinion. She could not point to one thing that was false except when he said that the past administration was a failure. So she took umbrage at the truth. When you are a demon, the truth does not set you free.

Is there a single report of any American voter who thought Pelosi's stunt was just the bee's knees? I mean, other than Pelosi's own caucus members or the bug-eyed bloviators on CNN and MSNBC? While I don't have enough anecdotes to make statistically-valid data, here in S. Fla. not a single person I have spoken with was impressed. Even the James Carville Democrats thought it was classless. And you gotta go pretty low when James Carville is classier than you.

Let's just say that childish paper tearing moment did away with Nancy's gold pen signing 'solemn' impeachment and skipping down the halls of Congress to hold Mitch McConnell hostage on her terms. The Acme cigar blew up on all their face three days this week. You could really say 'these are the best of times these are the worst of times' for the democrats.

I've seen babies in play pens exhibit more maturity than Nancy did during the SOTU. I think, though, that if VP Pence had reached over to stop her the media would have pounced on him for "man handling" her similar to the way they reported on Rick Lazio when Satan's Prom Queen" accused him of invading her space when they debated. That eould have been the story. Better that viewers saw her outrageous behavior themselves. I was raised to write thank you notes to anyone who gave me a gift so I will be sending both the "Speaker" and Prima Donna Lemon from the Cartoon News Network very graciously worded eMails thanking them for their invaluable service in getting the President re-elected. If we all did this I'm quite sure it would push Madame over the edge and she would be taken away in one of those lovely white coats with its sleeves tied behind her gibbering nonsensically as she was led to her padded cell.

Anyone who's dealt with elderly people when the elderlies have diagnosed or undiagnosed cases of dementia can identify some typical symptoms and/or behaviors. When the body experiences hypothermia, it restricts blood flow and attempts to keep the heat in the center of the body to protect organs. With dementia, the brain detects conflicts and deficiencies - eg memory loss, fogginess - and attempts to compensate for them by engaging in vainglorious behavior - boasting, telling self-serving stories, attempting to bring people to one's side (eg family conflicts) etc. Melodrama is also noted - crying jags, inappropriately wild laughter at mild humor, etc. If the media are going to foist Pelosi on us 24/7 then we can certainly observe the signs described above. Pelosi's constant invocations of religion, solemnity, prayer, 'sad days,' etc. are melodrama, nothing more. Her closed-eyes rictus grins are meant to telegraph punchlines to jokes only she understands. She repeats herself, she bigs herself up (especially as nobody else will do it), she'll bear false witness and then lose her temper when someone suggests she lacks decorum. She is mentally incapable of holding her office.

Rep. Joe Wilson was officially reprimanded after interrupting Obama during a speech to the Congress (not a SOTU) by shouting "You lie!" (he was right). Pelosi was extremely disruptive during the entire SOTU, fidgeting, clucking, tsk-tsking, muttering under her breath (?) to Pence? he wasn't sure, shuffling the speech pages, and as we now know, tearing little bits into the pages of her copy in order to facilitate her big denouement. She is a cranky and sour woman.

Washington—President Donald Trump told his attorney general and top GOP lawmakers he will not extend surveillance authorities that expire this month unless Congress sends him a bill that incorporates reforms, according to a senator present for the Tuesday night meeting at the White House. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., who has led efforts to curtail the federal government's ability to spy on Americans, said Trump "made it exceedingly clear" he will not accept a straight re-authorization of the surveillance provisions. Trump wants changes before he will sign the bill into law, Paul said.(Snip) Another person familiar with the meeting confirmed the account.

Miguel Federico Ajqui-Ajtzalam, 20, was originally arrested by the NYPD on Thursday, according to ICE.

Iran has been accused of failing to clamp down on coronavirus contamination after alarming videos of worshippers licking a shrine emerged online. Clips shared on social media show people licking the doors and burial mound inside the Fatima Masumeh shrine in Qom, defying token advice by the health ministry. Worshippers in the videos brazenly state they 'don't care what happens', even if they catch or spread the infection which has killed at least 54 in the country. Iran's hardline clerical establishment has refused to shut down Qom despite the holy city suffering the brunt of the outbreak and pilgrims spreading the virus across the Middle East.

Mexican national Christopher Puente, 34, was only in Chicago because cops refused to hold him for US Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials after he was arrested last year, ICE charged in a statement. He was then arrested last month for allegedly assaulting the 3-year-old after luring her to his bathroom stall while her dad helped her brother in the restaurant restroom, the Chicago Sun-Times has reported.

Black Lives Matter protesters say the husband of the Los Angeles County district attorney pointed a gun at them and threatened to open fire before sunrise Monday as they demanded a meeting with her at her home.

Here’s where you can stuff your plastic-bag ban. New Yorkers were forced to begin grappling with a new shopping reality Sunday as the state’s ban on plastic shopping bags kicked in—and not many people were happy about it. “I think it’s ridiculous,” letter-carrier Scott Kimmel, 56, said while shopping at the Whitestone Target in College Point, Queens.(Snip) About half the shoppers seen by The Post on the first day of the bag ban, including Kimmel, were compensating by bringing their own bags from home, while another quarter opted to just go bagless rather than pay the 5-cent paper-bag fee

Former Bill Clinton strategist Paul Begala thinks President Trump is going to swap running mates in 2020. The CNN political analyst made the prediction during a Monday panel event at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s annual conference. Begala, who was a chief strategist during Clinton’s 1992 campaign, said he thinks Pence will be replaced as vice president on Trump's ticket with Nikki Haley, his former U.N. ambassador. “This is not a prediction. It’s a certainty,” Begala said. “On Thursday, July 16 — that’s the date the Democrat gives her or his acceptance address — on that day, to interrupt that narrative, Donald Trump will call a press conference at Mar-a-Lago."

The unnamed jogging-enthusiast, from Berkeley, California, was criticized online after their demand made it on to a Twitter thread by Best of Nextdoor, a Twitter account dedicated to neighbor-on-neighbor pettiness. The runner, who admitted they found the smell of meat 'overpowering' when they go jogging at dinnertime, asked that their community show 'empathy for their plant-based neighbors' by closing windows while cooking, and only grilling vegetables on the BBQ.

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg explained in an interview with “60 Minutes” why he believes America will choose him over President Donald Trump this fall by characterizing those who swept Trump into office as mounting a “revolution” against the educated elite. “A few years ago there was a revolution against the intelligentsia,” Bloomberg told CBS’ Scott Pelley. “People said, ‘you know, those people, particularly on the coasts, are trying to tell us what to do.’ They wanted a change. That explains Donald Trump. Now, people seem to have changed. This cycle, people want stability.”

Former President Barack Obama senior advisor Valerie Jarrett on Tuesday urged whichever 2020 Democratic presidential candidate emerges as the leader after the conclusion of Super Tuesday to “break with conventional wisdom and announce a running mate that’s a woman of color,” especially if it is Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), former Vice President Joe Biden or former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Jarrett explained on CBS’s “This Morning” that “these are not normal times” and argued having a woman of color “would send an important signal” heading into the next round of primaries.“I think that whoever emerges tonight, particularly if it’s Bernie Sanders, if it’s Vice President Biden or

Democratic party and state officials in Colorado and Utah say early voters have inundated them with requests to recast their ballots because they voted before two major Democratic presidential candidates withdrew from the race, according to a report. “When Pete Buttigieg dropped out we had a lot of voters who wanted to know if they could vote over, and later on Amy Klobuchar dropped out,” Salt Late County Clerk Sherrie Swensen told Fox News, “But we were already answering phone calls, emails from voters who wanted to know because they had submitted their vote by mail ballot or voted early if they could have a chance to vote over.”

Former Vice President Joe Biden is vowing to “double” the number of psychologists in American schools, which by his estimate would mean sending an additional 35,000 to 60,000 psychologists into those school, according to the education plan he has posted on his campaign website.“The current school psychologist to student ratio in this country is roughly 1,400 to 1, while experts say it should be at most 700 to 1,” says Biden’s education plan. “That’s a gap of about 35,000 to 60,000 school psychologists.”In the same paragraph of the plan, Biden promises he will:

You would have thought that the vibe at CPAC this year would involve stressing about our November election prospects, but even as the market dipped over the coronavirus scare the general consensus was that whether we face Vermont Stalin or that miserable monied midget, we got this. The common image of conservatives is one of dour pessimism, but that is less due to some inherent doom-mongering on the right than to the decades of failure by Conservative Inc. Under the wise, steady guidance of our establishment betters, all we did was lose, but Donald Trump gave the cons a taste of winning, and they like it.
