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.

Trump Can’t Save America; Only We Can Do That

Trump Can’t Save America; Only We Can Do That

Our country is very near the point of no return. Trump is not the answer because he simply cannot garner the full support of the country. The nation is evenly divided politically, but within the Republican Party, there are roughly 12% who will never vote for Trump, no matter what the cost to the nation is. One simply can’t give up 12% of their own party and win in today’s highly charged…

Gavin Newsom Takes Social Justice to a Whole New Level

Gavin Newsom Takes Social Justice to a Whole New Level

Past wrongs cannot be righted by favoring contemporary members of one faction at the expense of individuals categorized otherwise. To attempt such is to engage in the very essence of systemic racism, a codified system purposely designed to discriminate on the basis of race. The final recommendation from Newsom’s committee, due May 2023, could…

The Man Who Brought Us The Bill of Rights

Although James Madison was originally opposed to George Mason’s idea of a declaration of rights, he gradually came to understand the importance of having one. Although opposed by James Monroe in the first election for the House of Representatives, Madison won, in part due to a pledge to introduce amendments to the Constitution, forming a bill of rights…

Breggins Prioritize Free Speech Above Self-Interest in $25 Million Lawsuit by Robert Malone

Because psychiatry as a profession has been used in many countries and during many decades as the “enforcer” of compliance and because we have the documentation and knowledge of this psychiatric abuse in greater detail than perhaps any other person and certainly any other reformer, we felt duty-bound to sound the alarm about this dangerous diagnostic trend of psychiatrically labeling groups of people as psychotic…

Putin’s War – It’s Far from Over

So what does a dying Russian leader do when he knows his legacy will be subject to his shortened lifespan? If he is Putin, he doubles down on his aggression in order to secure his legacy as a mighty conqueror who carries the torch of Peter the Great in making Russia great again. Putin’s scorched-earth campaign in Ukraine is going to continue…

From a ‘Pariah State’ to Begging for Oil, Flip-Flopping Biden

When Jamal Khashoggi was butchered by Saudi nationals, almost all American leaders from both sides of the aisle were adamant that Saudi Arabia should be punished. Biden escalated the rhetoric to the nth level by declaring the Kingdom a ‘pariah state.’ After making his moronic attack against the Kingdom, Biden had to go begging him to produce more oil to reduce the fuel cost at the American pump…

My Journey to Jesus – SGT Bush’s Mission to Demote Me

As usual, SGT Bush was giving me a hard time – ripping into every detail of my driving. He even once ordered me to go forward when doing so meant hitting the tank in front of me. I had to obey his order, or I could get in trouble, so I inched forward until my tank’s bridge gave a love tap to the bridge of the tank in front of me…

Nigerian Christians See Persecution Beyond Anything We’ve Experienced in America

The JD Rucker Political Report – Our problems seem negligible when we see what Christians must face in nations like Nigeria. While we complain because some churches are embracing homosexuality in the name of “inclusiveness,” churches in Nigeria are being burned to the ground. Christians in Nigeria are beaten, kidnapped, raped, or even killed on the way to their churches…

The Dangers of a Rogue FBI and its Domestic Terrorism Agenda

The Dangers of a Rogue FBI and its Domestic Terrorism Agenda

Like the parents at school board meetings, for example, opposing Leftism indoctrination? Olsen announced the formation of a new FBI “domestic terrorism unit.” Doesn’t that make you feel warm and cozy knowing your FBI Domestic Terrorism Team is about to sweep the country, rounding up all dissenters they deem to threaten Biden’s autocratic rule? The rest will simply be censored…

Exposed! Government Bounties Pushing COVID Shots

Whistleblower Report – The Department of Energy was offering “incentives” per employee of $1000, which the employer could keep in their coffers or decide to partially share as a bonus to the employee. Companies with thousands of employees can rake in millions of extra dollars from the government, at no cost to them, for simply mandating the COVID shot for people to…
