After President Donald Trump commuted the sentence of former adviser Roger Stone, Democrats went apoplectic. On Saturday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said she would support a bill that would limit a president’s pardoning abilities. Stone had been sentenced to three years in prison for witness tampering and lying to Congress. He was also arrested in an infamous early morning bust with multiple armed police raiding the 67-year-old’s home as CNN filmed.

Since when does one branch get to limit the constitutional powers of another branch? No doubt little Miss Nancy would like to limit all of the President's powers by forcing him to say "Mother may I?" before taking any action whatsoever.

President Trump exercised a constitutional power that the Congress can’t change without amending the US Constitution, forget about it! The only reason that Pelosi said that is that she was talking to her low information identity based constituency groups who don’t know any better. In reality Trump did not pardon Stone, he only granted Stone clemency as far as his prison term goes, at a time that the Democrats are releasing tens of thousands of hardened criminals from jails and prison using the COVID pandemic as an excuse. Stone is a harmless old man, who was convicted of process crimes that Democrats are rarely convicted for or are sent to prison. Apparently Stone has medical conditions that put Stone in a high risk situation, if he were to contract COVID in prison he could easily die. Obviously the Democrats could care less. Stone’s convictions stand, and it is up to him to remedy that situation through the Appeals Court.

As someone on Twitter pointed out, Pelosi has kept the House out of session for reasons having nothing to do with the virus despite her claims. The House is not meeting yet Pelosi continues to have pressers as if it is. Why? She really does think she's a shadow president. She then cooked up a typically bizarre - and patently unconstitutional - proxy voting system with her as the only real proxy since the Dems control the House (suburban Karens you created a mess in 2018). Now she wants a typically bizarre - and patently unconstitutional - assault on separation of powers. But pie-in-the-sky is nothing new for Pelosi who regularly blurts out nonsense that doesn't pass the laugh test. She is annoying in the extreme but also good comedy value with her utterly fake sanctimony and attempts at humor.

Babbling Botox Barbie is at it again. I think that Trump should sign an executive order banning impeachment by dems. See how easy it is to make meaningless imperial decrees? Fortunately such choices are ultimately in the hands of the states via their legislatures, which better represent We the People, instead of the Washington cesspool crowd.

Maybe someone on Nancy's staff could introduce her to Schoolhouse Rock's, "How a Bill Becomes a Law". She may have missed a key point introduced about two minutes into the video. "Well, then I'm off to the White House Where I'll wait in a line With a lot of other bills For the president to sign And if he signs me, then I'll be a law. How I hope and pray that he will, But today I am still just a bill." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Otbml6WIQPo

Constitution: Article II. Section 2. The President ... shall have the power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offenses against the United States except in Cases of Impeachment." The president can't pardon anyone impeached, himself or any other government official. Congress has no power to alter the constitutional power granted the Executive. Another BS grandstanding play by 60's retread Pelosi.

That frontal lobotomy may have reached in just a little too deep. She need not concern herself with limiting the power of the next president who meets her approval because they aren't at all constrained by such trifling matters as constitutional and legal limitations on power.

Too many shots of botulism toxin to the face. This is a power directly granted by the Constitution, and cannot be affected in any way by some idiotic moves by Congress. The only way this could be changed would be via a Constitutional Amendment - which is not going to happen, to a 99.999% certainty. Nutty, nasty Nan - spinning her demented tales again.

Recently made public Secret Service records indicate that Hunter Biden, the youngest son of former Vice President Joe Biden, did not travel to Ukraine prior to his appointment to the board of directors of Burisma Holdings, one of the country’s top energy conglomerates. The documents, which were received through a Freedom of Information Act request by the conservative-leaning group Judicial Watch, show the younger Biden took 411 domestic and international flights between 2009 and 2014. The secret service provided protection for Biden on each of those flights and potentially more, as the records only cover the period from June 2009 to May 2014.

Trump has fallen a significant distance behind presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in recent weeks, as the coronavirus has become resurgent. Republicans are eyeing their electoral futures with increasing nervousness. “Are they worried about Trump’s approval rating? Absolutely, because many of them know they cannot significantly outperform the president. If you are in a swing state or in a swing district, you need the president to be at least competitive,” said one former Republican member of Congress, who requested anonymity to speak candidly.
