Window or Aisle Nancy?

In a brilliant move President Trump announced today that a Congressional delegation to Brussels, Egypt, and Afghanistan headed up by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi would have to be postponed as a result of the ongoing partial government shutdown. Travel by military aircraft had been planned for the trip, which as Commander in Chief President Trump will not approve because of the shutdown.

Though denied by the White House, it certainly appeared to be an obvious response to Speaker Pelosi’s recent suggestion that the upcoming State of the Union Address be postponed for “security” reasons. Though the U.S. Secret Service, the FBI, and the Department of Homeland Security all indicated that there were no security issues surrounding the State of the Union Address that could not be resolved and handled as a result of the government shutdown.

In his letter to Speaker Pelosi explaining his decision President Trump acknowledged that the Speaker certainly could proceed with her trip using commercial airlines if she chose to do so. An option that Speaker Pelosi apparently isn’t interested in pursuing.

In a statement today critical of both Pelosi and President Trump for what’s been described as “Sophomoric behavior”, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham chided both and mentioned that Pelosi and the rest of the Congressional delegation should be allowed to visit the troops. Seriously Lindsey, do you think the troops are at all anxious to see Nancy Pelosi?

I’ve been overseas when Congressional Delegations (CODEL) have shown up. They’re a royal pain in the butt. Extra security precautions have to be made, not to mention lodging and transportation arrangements. Military and embassy officials have to work many extra hours to pull off the visit without a hitch.

In 2006 I was at the Al Faw Palace on Camp Victory in Baghdad when then Senator Hillary Clinton paid a visit. I watched from an upper level of the palace atrium as Clinton and her entourage walked across the atrium following a meeting with the military leadership. Other than the generals, there were few soldiers in uniform to be seen anywhere around the future presidential candidate. They simply weren’t interested in meeting her.

I’m pretty confident that as Hillary Clinton experienced in Baghdad, Pelosi would have been met with the same response from the rank and file of the military in Afghanistan. Oh out of courtesy the senior commanders would meet with her, along with any soldiers who happened to be walking nearby and were ‘Shanghaied’ into it by higher ranking officers. Perhaps a few soldiers might be curious if she was as dumb in person as she is on television. But I’m certain that few in the military would be dropping everything to turn out to receive Queen Nancy and her entourage. They’d much rather be watching Armed Forces Television reruns of the Three Stooges instead. Come to think of it…..

I have a suggestion for Speaker Pelosi. Instead of gallivanting around visiting Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and planning to visit Belgium, Egypt, and Afghanistan, stay in Washington and sit down with President Trump and work out a deal. It’s your damn job!

Americans are hurting as a result of the partial government shutdown. A shutdown that could be ended in minutes if Pelosi would choose to show more concern about the immorality experienced by American citizens who have been assaulted, raped, and killed by illegal aliens, than the concern she expresses about a border wall being immoral.

With another caravan of a couple thousand or more future illegal aliens that formed in Central America and heading our way now, the country needs enhanced security – including a wall where appropriate – along our border now more than ever. 

But if she’s committed to traveling overseas during this government shutdown instead of sitting down and negotiating with the president in good faith, and more interested in wasting our troops time in Afghanistan with her Congressional visit, my recommendation is that she just use her broom to get there.

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough #14

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough #14

Can Dr. McCullough, talk more about pericarditis? Everyone mentions myocarditis, but there are never any statistics mentioned for pericarditis. In Australia, there are twice as many reports of pericarditis than myocarditis from vaccines. What are the dangers of having Covid naturally and then getting vaccinated? Wasn’t there a thought that you should not get vaccinated for 90 days after having Covid?

Hunter Biden, Paul Pelosi Jr. and A Swamp of Thieves

Hunter Biden was earning an $80,000 monthly salary from the Ukrainian energy company and why he concocted a billion-dollar deal with a Chinese investment firm, 10% of all earnings of which were destined for the coffers of the family’s mob boss, Joe Biden himself.

Global Failure of Public Health on Pandemic Response

PM Boris Johnson announced that his country is to move into mitigated COVID restrictions, dropping the legal requirement for face masks and COVID passports. Meanwhile, the European Union drug regulators warned frequent COVID boosters could adversely affect the immune system.

The China Virus Game of Funding Cover-Up

The China Virus Game of Funding Cover-Up

A close examination of the newly unredacted emails reveals that none of the usual justifications for redactions, such as private information about people or threats to sources and methods, apply. All appear to have been made solely to shield Fauci and the NIH from scrutiny over its cover-up of the virus’ origins. Also involved in the obfuscation effort were Fauci’s boss, recently retired NIH Dir Dr. Francis Collins…

This Week In COVID: Hospitals, Please Stop Killing Our Loved Ones!

Patients never have the same doctor or nurse 2 days in a row. Family advocates STILL aren’t allowed to be bedside. The ‘Science’ isn’t being followed, but the ‘Money’ is being chased after. Doctors aren’t THINKING, they are OBEYING. One-size-fits-all does NOT work for high-risk patients or any patients. If you agree this is wrong, help us fight for what’s right…

The Questionable Merger of a Global Reverse Biotechnology Corporation

The former corporation of Senomyx, once headquartered out of La Jolla, California, allegedly used aborted Fetal cells in its food and beverage products while in collaboration with some of the world’s largest leading food and beverage corporations.

Why Ukraine Matters to America

Why Ukraine Matters to America

Putin was severely stung by the collapse of the Soviet Union and what he perceived as gloating on the part of American politicians and others in the West. Putin set it as his primary goal to get payback for what he viewed as the insults that were levied against Mother Russia. I recall at the time commenting that we needed to tone it down…

England’s COVID Liberation: Real or Ruse?

England’s COVID Liberation: Real or Ruse?

Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s sudden change of direction leaves one to wonder if he is genuine in his thoughts and motives. Has he finally figured out that masking, isolation, jabs, and distancing never availed us any good? Probably not. Johnson has endured increasing pressure to resign due to his cultic mandates. Being freed from vaccine passports, mask mandates, classroom restrictions, isolation…

Anthony Fauci’s Rules: The Rule of Two

Anthony Fauci’s Rules: The Rule of Two

We are not in a pandemic anymore, but Fauci told us just the other day – and repeated the following day – that though Omicron may be mild, that does NOT mean we can relax restrictions, so like the Little Engine that Could (Not), we just keep chugging up the mountain, knowing we will never reach the top. The Biden Administration, in the meantime, tells us to grow up and manage our expectations…

Flip-flop Joe Must Stay the Course on Off-shore Drilling

Just before holding the lease auction, the Biden administration said the lawsuit did force them to make the oil leases in the Gulf. Now, flip-flop Joe’s administration says they did not have to go ahead with the lease auctions. In response, the environmental group Earthjustice launched a lawsuit on December 3rd to halt the leases before they come into effect in…
