‘I’m A Street Fighter’: Pelosi Says
She Would Have Fought Capitol Rioters

Original Article

Posted By: dst4life, 4/14/2021 10:50:12 AM

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday she would have fought Capitol rioters should they have entered the House chamber, according to USA Today. Pelosi and other members of Congress were in the House chamber on Jan. 6 when a group of rioters entered seeking to disrupt the certification of the 2020 presidential election. Pelosi was asked by USA Today what she would have done if she wasn’t evacuated in time, to which she responded, “Well, I’m pretty tough. I’m a street fighter. They would have had a battle on their hands.”

Comments:

Pelosi: "I'm a street fighter." Translation: "I fight dirty." Extrapolated translation: Pelosi has been snorting cocaine. The late Ashley Babbitt could have given Pelosi an arse whipping.

Wow, where to start? The idea that a tiny old woman is fighting anything but her dentures or that anyone would have done anything more than ask her politely for a group selfie or to hold their beer?

Channeling Joe Biden, are we? Oooooohhhhhhhhh, we saw how you ripped the State of the Union papers into shreds. Of course it was done by first tearing starter rips during the speech, then, at the end, you showed those papers who's BOSS. Please.

Can't believe how highly and privileged they think of themselves. What went on in Portland, Seattle and other cities was so much worse than what happened Jan. 6th. If they want to criticize privilege, they should look in the mirror. What hypocrites. She would be the first one crying for the police.

Wasn't it her responsibility to have sufficient law enforcement at the January 6 -close-to-a-million gathering - which included the elderly and babies in carriages - to prevent any kind of harm to any of those in attendance, especially when she had prior intelligence that there were troublemakers (antifa and company) en route to D.C. whose purpose - always - is to cause trouble? I am sure Ms. Nancy is aware that there was HEAVY police presence at Martin Luther King's "I Have A Dream" speech in D.C. in 1963, and there was only 250,000 in attendance!!! - not a million. There was no reason for the troublemakers to have free rein on January 6, 2021.

Pelosi would have had no trouble with the alleged "rioters" at the Capitol. Most of the people there were middle class middle aged people just there to express verbal opinion. The few unruly people there were Antifa or being tempted by Antifa punks. NOTE: the word "tempted" above is not a mistake.

Street fighter? Can you hear my hearty laughter? This from the old ice cream eating fool who couldn't get off of her knees while dressed in African garb in solidarity for George Floyd. Pelosi needed assistance to get off the floor while Gerald Nadler stood there knowing he could never rise off the floor once his big fat arse went down.

I'm relatively small statured and as a LEO, had many encounters with felons of all sizes, mostly of the larger variety. Pelosi reminds me of the worst loud mouth, legend-in-their-own-mind punks I arrested. The mouthiest would harangue me on the way to booking them into jail with what they'd do to me if I would only take off their handcuffs. Of course they were too stupid and full of themselves to acknowledge how those cuffs got those cuffs put on them in the first place.

I'm more annoyed at the headline calling them "rioters." Those people were more like tourists invited in by police holding the doors open for them. A few were nutcases, but no one was armed or tried to hurt anyone else. What they really wanted to do is enter the gallery or the halls and shout down the electoral vote counting because it was fraudulent.

Since there was no one there that was threatening injury or death, she probably would have been able to “fight” them off. That, then begs the question, they were so little of a danger that she could take care of them with her $1200 shoes, why did they have to shoot Ashlee?

Talk is cheap. If Pelosi hung around when those morons unlawfully entered the Capitol building and had been nasty to the morons when they arrived at her office, chances are some 250 lb. moron would have cold cocked her with a left hook to the jaw that would have rearranged her plastic surgery and her teeth. Then she would have been singing a completely different tune. You can bet on that. Reality shows by their actions following the incident on January 6th, that Pelosi and her crew actually got the crap scared out of them. That’s why there are still so many National Guard troops and high fences deployed around Pelosi’s office and the Capitol building since January 6th.

Russian President Vladimir Putin took advantage of the Biden administration’s decision to abandon plans to send two destroyers to the Black Sea by closing off the Kerch Strait, connecting Crimea to Russia, to foreign warships until next fall. The action comes as Russia warned the US on Tuesday to stay away from the area “for their own good” after the Biden administration said it was going to send two destroyers — the USS Roosevelt and the USS Donald Cook — to the Black Sea in response to Moscow’s increasing military presence near Ukraine.

Labor Secretary Marty Walsh, leaders in the labor movement, and some Ohio Democratic lawmakers held a virtual event to celebrate the bill's support for the struggling pensions.

The Biden administration declared a national emergency on Thursday, slapping sanctions on more than three dozen people in Russia and expelling 10 diplomats, in an about-face after the US reversed course of two warships heading to the Black Sea. President Biden signed an executive order detailing Russia’s actions in the SolarWinds cyber-intrusion and its interference in the election, accusing the Kremlin of working to “undermine the conduct of free and fair democratic elections and democratic institutions in the United States and its allies and partners,” according to a statement from the White House.

The poll asked registered voters if they support or oppose American companies using their public role, position, or events to influence political, cultural, or social change. The findings show that over half (58 percent) oppose any type of corporation using its power to influence any type of political, cultural, or social change across the country. They also show that 35 percent did support the efforts by woke corporations, while seven percent were unsure how to answer.

How did this happen? How did the nation go in an instant from disbelieving every utterance of Donald Trump to robotically repeating — and acting on — every claim that falls out of Joe Biden’s mouth, no matter how disconnected from the truth? The most glaring example involves Biden’s fact-challenged tirade against Georgia’s new voting law. At his first and only press conference, Biden declared the state’s efforts to protect against voter fraud were worse than Jim Crow, “un-American,” “sick,” and “despicable.” (This was the same press conference where moments later Biden bragged about how much time he’s spent with China’s genocidal communist dictator before calling him “a smart, smart guy.”)

Psaki said she hadn't spoken to President Joe Biden before the morning briefing, so didn't know if he'd watched it, but said it served as a 'reminder' that 'too often in this country law enforcement uses unnecessary force, too often resulting in the death of black and brown Americans.' She said the shooting was unnecessary after Chicago cops released bodycam footage showing the boy had a gun and dropped it just before the officer opened fire.

Say what you want about Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, but one thing about the first-term Republican Congresswoman from Georgia that no one can dispute is that she does not back down from a fight, especially when she’s on the receiving end of an unprovoked attack.(Snip)The latest Democrat to learn that Greene has not morphed into a meek and timid freshman lawmaker after the House voted in February to strip her of her committee assignments was Rep. Eric Swalwell (CA), .(Snip) It all started on Wednesday after Greene challenged Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) to a debate about the Green New Deal.

On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The ReidOut,” White House Chief Medical Adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci said that fully vaccinated people can go to indoor restaurants, but “it’s a relative risk. When you have a lot of infection in the community, then you want to be careful. That’s why we say, wear a mask.” Host Joy Reid asked if fully vaccinated people can eat in indoor restaurants, fly, or hug their older relatives. Fauci said, “You know, it depends on the level of infection in your community. It doesn’t matter what the level of infection is, if you are vaccinated and you want to have something in the home, you, your family

With all this push for Hollywood “diversity” one often wonders if Hollywood has a vendetta against traditional standards of movie making. According to one insider, that’s exactly the case for at least one major studio. Sci-fi author Nick Cole, co-author of the Galaxy’s Edge series, claimed that during a pitch meeting, a major Hollywood studio passed on a recent project he had been working on, citing the fact that they’re done producing content for “White, Christian, Trash.” Oh wow, that’s a hell of a way to say it. Perhaps this is the sentiment underlying Hollywood’s spate of inclusivity-over-everything pledges they’ve made in the past few years.

According to pollsters at Quinnipiac University, 69 percent of all Americans and clear majorities in every demographic group now favor the legalization of marijuana. That's up from 51 percent of Americans who said they favored legalization in 2012, the first year Quinnipiac included questions about marijuana in their national surveys, and up from 60 percent who backed legalization in 2019.

The Quinnipiac poll found that 78 percent of self-identified Democrats, 62 percent of self-identified Republicans, and 67 percent of self-identified independents favor legalization.

BROOKLYN CENTER, Minn —When William Adams moved to this area a few years ago, he joined thousands of Minneapolis residents in transforming Brooklyn Center from the mostly White suburb it once was into one where people of color account for more than half the population. But as he tried to settle into the community, Adams, who is Black, was always reminded of how Brooklyn Center police used to harass him in the early 1970s when he came to visit his girlfriend, who was White. “They would see something hanging in the window, or a light out on my car and

Anybody who’s taking Dr. Anthony Fauci seriously probably needs to stop doing so. He endlessly moves the goalposts to maintain his unlimited power over the American people, something Democrats support. That’s why, on Thursday, during House testimony, Rep. Maxine Watters (who is a low-rent harridan) tried to shut down Rep. Jim Jordan’s efforts to get Fauci to say when enough Americans will be vaccinated so that COVID restrictions can end. The past year has shown that Fauci either has no idea what he’s talking about or is trying to advance an agenda that invariably has to do with maintaining the 2020 status quo of lockdowns, isolation, and masks.
