Nancy Pelosi Basically Asks for Civil War with
Insane Gambit to Expel GOP House Members

Original Article

Posted By: ladydawgfan, 1/11/2021 3:59:47 AM

Well, so much for that whole unity thing. Democrats are out for blood, emboldened by the idiotic alt-right fools who rushed the Capitol last week, and they are seemingly going to play every card they have. Impeachment is already being talked about, perhaps even after Biden’s inauguration, in order to ban Trump from every holding office again. But if that wasn’t dumb enough, Nancy Pelosi is now looking at the 14th Amendment as a way to expel Republican members of the House for supposedly taking part in an “insurrection.”

This woman has totally lost her marbles and is a definite threat to our country. If there are any sane democrats left in the House of Representatives they should immediately take action to to remove her. It is bad enough that we have an idiot selected as president by fraudulent voting but between the two of them this country cannot survive. This is serious business and must be taken care of immediately !!!

It’s time for some small-step actions. Maybe a biker slowdown on the Beltway? Maybe a truckers’ boycott on delivering goods to key Capital locations? Sit downs. Remember the sit downs of the civil rights movement? We can bring those back. Maybe “Sarah Sanders” some of the Communist goons in the house (small “h”) We need a little action.

Do they have a Baker Act in DC? Or California? (That's Florida's act that allows someone who acts insane to be held for a short time. But in Pelosi's case, it should be years!) Anyway, would someone please throw some water on her?

Pelosi needs to be very careful about the equine excrement she tosses. Democrats in Congress objected to the elections in 2001, 2005, and 2016. A Senator also protested in 2005. No one suggested that any of them be expelled. But, as we learned with the ending of the judicial filibuster by Harry Reid, what goes around comes around. The next time any Dem objects to an election that goes the Republicans' way, they should expect the same treatment as these reps are getting.

There were lessons to be learned by all sides last week, but have the DemocRats learned anything? Predictably, no, They're too busy throwing kerosene on already inflamed situation to learn anything (and too many are incapable of learning). I've been saying for a while that Rats have been trying to foment US Civil War II. Seems that Queen Nancy has pushed her chips all in on that now. She wants it, then let those chips fall where they may. The blood will be on her hands.

Hold your horses. You are talking about republicans fighting back? Since when has that ever happened? Since it is up to we the people, don't count on any real action being taken. We the people, for the most part, won't even put up a Trump sign in our yard at election time. LOL, you good folk crack me up. Trump flying the flag at half-mast for the cops that killed one of ours........... sigh.

I'd like to think that the Biden voters I know are dismayed by the Dems' and Big Tech's threats to free speech and dissent, but most only superficially follow the news (watch the evening news or Rachel Maddow) so they probably aren't.

For the last few days Pelosi has been attempting to engineer what amounts to a military coup against Trump by contacting the Chief of Staff of the military and encouraging him to take the strategic nuclear codes away from the President so that he can’t order a nuclear attack against someone thus starting World War III. In that respect Trump is the first President in a longtime who has not started a war or advocated for new wars, and in fact Trump has tried to, with great opposition from career politicians and the military bureaucracy, to remove the US military from the endless Middle East and Southwest Asia foreign wars. Other than Pelosi nobody with any authoritative knowledge has insinuated that Trump intends to start World War III in his last days in office. Now yesterday Pelosi came out and said that Trump should be immediately impeached and removed from office so that he will be unable to grant presidential pardons to members of the mob who violently entered the Capitol building unlawfully. In contrast Trump has publicly stated that anyone who broke the law during the mob action at the Capitol should be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. In addition before Pelosi came out with that talk, the media reported that Trump was raging against the mob perpetrators by saying that what they did made him and his millions of law abiding supporters look bad. In reality there is no authoritative information that Trump has any intention of pardoning that mob. Pelosi has also said that Trump should be impeached and removed from office so that he will not be eligible to run for President in 2024, something Trump may or may not do. It looks like Pelosi is actually advocating impeaching Trump and removing him from office for some offense that she dreams that Trump might do in the future. That’s a prior restraint of things that the President may or may not do in the future and is not what the impeachment provisions of the US Constitution have ever been used for throughout US history. Clearly Pelosi is a very angry person, and herself looks like she is in need of a check up from the neck up.

Some of you may not know, but Republicans did this very same thing in the late 1800's in order to pass the 14th Amendment. Though the Amendment never pass Republicans treated as though it had been and placed it into law. Might want to do some history review outside of academia and learn the truth.

Pelosi is insane, so is Schumer, and both have the gavel. Now that the Democrats have total control, including the election process, they will never lose another election. The Democrats will take everything from you, and tell you not to resist--and so will the Republicans, and the scraps of media they have left.

Re: #13 - As you have around for many years and have always been very reasonable, I respectfully ask why, on the subject of fighting back, do you think that republican politicians aren't not reflective and representative of "we the people?" When is the last time that "we the people" have been bothered to put down social media and take to the streets in a show of force, will, and resolve? When the president elected by "we the people" was being impeached, what actions did "we the people" take that differs from that of elected GOP representatives? Over the weekend, I noted a trend on this site of posters making excuses for continuing to indulge their Twitter and Facebook habits and lamenting the fact that Amazon is too convenient in their lives for them to walk away, regardless of what their leadership is doing to poison the country. I make no excuses for feckless Republican politicians but must acknowledge that they pretty well represent the "we the people" majority.

#23, you are right on the money. I am still on Facebook (don't want to miss any of the Class of 69 obituaries);still ordering from Amazon (it makes everything just so easy!); and web browsing with Google Chrome. My excuse is that I'm 70. I'm tired. I STILL don't get all this computer stuff completely. Etc. In other words, I have no excuse except being lost between generations. I need a few more days to let it sink in that I have to change all my ways of a lifetime. My problem is that years of apathy and taking America for granted have given me the government I deserve. If I sound sad and defeated, I am. Just need a few more days.

Plastic Heifer is an awesome name for her. For she pretty much has the mind of a bovine after all the anesthesia she has sucked in while she got her surgeries over the past decades. Botox harpy is another one. This IMO is simply another version of the old saying elections have consequences. Democrats just never will admit defeat. Even if Trump were to outright crush their hopes this week, they still won't admit defeat.

Geez, #28. I’m 68. I was on Fakebook for a couple of weeks back in the 90’ but got off because it creeped me out - boyfriends from high school trying to friend me - ugh. You don’t need it to keep up with anyone - use email, text messages or actually call people and interact with them in person. You don’t need Amazon - you can go on their site, find what you need and then order it directly from the company, manufacturer or distributor bypassing Amazon completely. And you don’t need Google anything. DuckDuckGo is a perfectly good alternative. Google tracks absolutely everything you do and can follow you as you move around even if you have your phone or tablet turned off. A great way to deal with the feeling of being defeated is to take action. You don’t need to pick up a weapon; you just need to make a few easy lifestyle changes. Quit supporting Zuckerberg, Bezos and the rest of the demons who are trying to destroy you.

The Commiecrats and their Leader, Pelosi are doing this to send a signal to anyone who thinks of opposing her and her AOC army if they should even DARE to run counter to the Communist line. The old WW II movies showed Nazis entering a town and selecting a number of people to be shot in the town square as an example to everyone.

Did you know that 1300 people—including 800 kids—had their lives irreparably destroyed after a shot of the rushed-to-market Swine Flu vaccine left them with incurable narcolepsy? [Tweet] Probably not, I suppose, since our media has gone into full-time shilling for the vastly more rushed-to-market product Pfizer’s now peddling as a COVID-19 prophylactic. Say what you will about that disastrous Swine Flu vax, however. Unlike the mRNA technology that Pfizer’s currently pushing on a mostly unsuspecting world, at least it really meets the definition of a vaccine. The CDC defines a vaccine as “a product that stimulates a person’s immune system to produce immunity to a specific disease.”

As has long been transparently predictable, the eve of the inauguration of Joe Biden has coincided with the determination of state and local elected Democrat officials that the threat of a COVID-19 pandemic has passed, and economic and social life in Democrat-controlled cities and states can now begin to return to “normal”. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo made his view known earlier this week: New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Tuesday he wants to start opening restaurants, theaters and offices by launching rapid testing sites in New York City and eventually at hundreds of new sites in other city centers throughout the state.

We’ve been reporting how Fox News seems to have abandoned “fair and balanced” and gone the way of mainstream news, all in on liberal talking points. It’s been ongoing for awhile, but got really bad and obvious around the election and after.

I’ll give the requisite warning that there will be at least some level of Ron DeSantis fanboying contained in this article. With that out of the way, DeSantis once again today showed why he’s cut from a different piece of cloth that most other Republican politicians, especially those that reside within the beltway in D.C. With big tech cracking down on internet speech, specifically conservative viewpoints, it’s far past time for the GOP to fight back in ways they can. While there’s little that can be done at the national level now because Trump and the Republican Senate squandered those opportunities the last four years, there’s plenty that can happen downstream.

Their rush to punish could become their own undoing. In the climate change fiasco of a film ‘’The Day After Tomorrow’’ we are presented with a number of ridiculous premises. One, in particular, came to mind this weekend with the oppressive acts we saw emanating from Silicon Valley. In a later scene a weather system descends on New York, delivering a massive drop in temperature in a matter of seconds, so frigid that it manages to freeze a helicopter in mid-air. Jake Gyllenhaal’s character sees this frosty threat and runs to get back to a safe room where there is a fireplace burning, racing through hallways that become encrusted with ice.

The list is getting longer of corporations cutting ties with President Donald Trump and his friends and allies because of the January 6th incursion of the US Capitol Building.

Various left-wing writers (some of them nominally Republican) have been salivating over the prospects of a GOP civil war. Nothing would make them happier than to see Republicans tearing each other apart in a fight over President Trump and the future of the GOP. However, this will not happen. It is a sign of how self-delusional the anti-Trump forces are that they could look at the House of Representatives vote on impeaching President Trump (for the second time) and convince themselves this is the harbinger of a Republican civil war.

The Capitol Police have over 2,000 sworn officers. A police force dedicated to protecting Capitol Hill has more personnel in its service than the police forces of most of the country. Congress' private cops are the 19th largest police force in the country. It’s a larger force than the police forces of Atlanta, Baltimore, Denver, or Milwaukee with a massive $460 million budget. It’s the only legislative federal force in the country that is answerable exclusively to Congress. While Democrats advocated defunding the police, their private police force budget shot up from $375 million in 2016 to $460 million in 2020. After the Capitol Hill riot, expect it to go higher. Much higher.

A group of students at Harvard University are demanding that the degrees earned by Trump allies be revoked as punishment for their political opinions.“Harvard must revoke the degrees of alumni whose incendiary language and subversion of democratic processes—rooted in a history of white supremacist voter suppression—incited the violent insurrection on January 6,” the petition said, which was obtained by Fox Business. “This includes all who have used their platforms to deny the validity of the presidential election. They do not and should not represent a university committed to ‘strengthening democracy’

Pallets of empty cardboard boxes were delivered Wednesday to the Eisenhower Executive Office Building. Moving day is less than a week away and preparations are underway for Trump’s departure and the Bidens arrival. Before the Bidens arrive, deep cleaning is scheduled to take place in the White House and Jill Biden has plans for a million-dollar bathroom renovation in the East Wing. We are still in a pandemic so it’s reasonable that intense cleaning will happen as one group leaves and another moves into the White House. This year the cleaning that takes place during the transition between two administrations is more intense (and costly) than normally done.

As has long been transparently predictable, the eve of the inauguration of Joe Biden has coincided with the determination of state and local elected Democrat officials that the threat of a COVID-19 pandemic has passed, and economic and social life in Democrat-controlled cities and states can now begin to return to “normal”. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo made his view known earlier this week: New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Tuesday he wants to start opening restaurants, theaters and offices by launching rapid testing sites in New York City and eventually at hundreds of new sites in other city centers throughout the state.

President-elect Joe Biden has unveiled a $1.9 trillion relief package that includes a third stimulus check of $1,400, in addition to the $600 direct payment issued last month. But Senator Ed Markey of Massachusetts thinks struggling Americans need more cash to weather the ongoing pandemic. Markey called for Congress to pass his proposal of $2,000 monthly stimulus checks in a statement on Friday. "The $1,400 in direct cash assistance is a down payment that will help families make rent, put food on the table, and pay the utility bills after Senate Republicans blocked that additional funding back in December," the
