Pelosi in peril: Pentagon plays down fears
China will SHOOT DOWN Nancy's plane if
she visits Taiwan after Beijing warned
U.S will 'bear all consequences'

U.S. officials today said they have little fear that China could attack Nancy Pelosi's plane if she flies to Taiwan as Beijing doubled down on their threat to take 'firm and strong measures' if the House speaker visits the island. If Pelosi does travel to Taiwan, which is still an uncertainty, the U.S. military would increase its movement of forces and assets in the Indo-Pacific region, officials said. The officials declined to provide details of their plans, but said that fighter jets, ships, surveillance assets and other military systems would likely be used to provide overlapping rings of protection for her flight to Taiwan

It's impossible for anyone to despise this witch more than a friend of mine does - - but my friend is all in favor of the spouse of America's most infamous - - and drunken - - inside trader to take this trip. This is a very Reagan-like move - - and If the chicoms don't like it - - let them lump it.

I have little fear that they would either. When the booze hound gets there she’ll just discredit the US, so it’ll be a win for china. This is all a payola ploy- insider trading isn’t giving them the 160% returns they have grown to waller in.

There were similar threats when Newt Gingrich visited in 1997. His visit went very well. Pelosi should go because she said that she was going. We can't let the Chinese determine where US officials can and cannot go. The sensitive, sissified bunch in the Pentagon strikes no fear in the hearts any of our enemies. They are an embarrassment. Taiwan is very important to the stability of the region, and when the the Republican's take back the reins, China will settle back down until the next Democrat gets in.

If anything the ChiComs are calculating and measured in their moves. They always plan for the long run. They MUST know they'd incur worldwide condemnation if they knock Pelosi's plane out of the sky. Goodbye Silk Road. I think it's all bluster and a way to 'save face.'

Pelosi and all her cohorts are in the pocket of the CCP. This is all fake drama and is very suspicious. It's happening with the approval, or even at the direction of, China. Possibly, they want to use it as an excuse to crack down more on Taiwan. Also, it may be a move to bolster Pelosi's image in preparation for installing her as President, since she's Speaker and in line right behind the joke Kamala. With her in the office and war tensions high, though fake, they just might declare an emergency and "postpone" the elections in November.

Why would the Chinese shoot down Pelosi who is one of their strongest allies in Congress? They would be cutting off their communist nose to spite their communist face. Pelosi is a communist death democrat who wishes that our Country was ruled in exactly the same totalitarian way as China. This is once again all communist death democrat media propaganda to show Pelosi in some weird courageous light. Her real reason is to fly to Taiwan to pick up bags of cash in exchange for favorable laws benefiting Taiwanese companies. The only place that this traitorous, murdering hag Pelosi should be flying to is to start a life sentence in solitary confinement at the Supermax Prison in Colorado.

Crypt Keeper Pelosi, the woke dimwits at the Pentagon and the Chicoms aren't fooling anyone. They're all corrupt scum who do NOT have We the People's interest at heart. So Pelosi will go on another useless taxpayer funded junket. Austin and Milley can act tough and Biden's buddy Xi Jinping the ding-a-ling can save his two faces. Also ask yourself this question. Why would Ding-a-Ling shoot down the plane code named Broom Stick when he has our demented old fool of a president in his pocket?

President Joe Biden gave a cringy speech attacking former President Trump, looking ragged and sounding hoarse, but what was even odder was that he never blinked while speaking, giving the appearance that something was definitely off. Biden just tested negative for COVID and will exit seclusion despite sounding and appearing less than one-hundred percent. The White House claims his symptoms are nearly “resolved,” despite all evidence to the contrary. The president has made a show of working while he is under the weather, making numerous videos and appearing remotely to the press. But this latest video makes Biden look decidedly hostage-like and many found it disturbing.

Former President Donald Trump is not likely to go to prison. Nor is he likely to be prosecuted for the events surrounding Jan. 6, 2021. Confident claims to the contrary are the product of Twitter resistance fever swamp fantasies. Those offering such arguments either don’t understand the optics of former Supreme Court nominee-turned-Attorney General Merrick Garland indicting a former president who prevented him from sitting on the highest court. Perhaps Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) has given the game away by unequivocally stating that she is doing everything in her power to keep Trump away from another Oval Office stint. Whether you agree with Cheney's tactics or strategy is beside the point.

President Biden said the United States "is not in a recession," despite Thursday's GDP report, saying it is "no surprise that the economy is slowing down" amid inflation. The U.S. economy shrank in the spring for the second consecutive quarter, meeting the criteria for a recession as record-high inflation and higher interest rates forced consumers and businesses to pull back on spending. Gross domestic product, the broadest measure of goods and services produced across the economy, shrank by 0.9% on an annualized basis in the three-month period from April through June, the Commerce Department said in its first reading of

President Joe Biden said the U.S. economy is “on the right path” on Thursday, hours after the Bureau of Economic Analysis announced that GDP had contracted for the second consecutive quarter, sending the U.S. into a recession. GDP fell .9 percent in the second quarter from April to June, the Bureau of Economic Analysis announced Thursday. The traditional definition of a recession is two consecutive quarters of GDP contraction, though the Biden administration has in recent weeks tried to redefine the term along more subjective lines. “Coming off of last year’s historic economic growth – and regaining all the private sector jobs lost during the pandemic crisis – it’s no surprise
