Congress Evidently Has It’s Own Concept Of Reality

Yesterday One America News posted an article about some recent comments by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. Speaker Pelosi stated that she blames President Trump and climate change for the current border crisis (she refuses to call it a crisis–she refers to it as a “humanitarian challenge.”

The article reports:

She said the Biden administration inherited a broken system, and even went as far as to say migrants were fleeing Central America because of so-called “climate change.”

“My most recent trip to the Northern Triangle, that would be Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador, you saw the impact of the climate change,” Pelosi stated. “Mind you, these people were leaving because of the drought they couldn’t farm.”

Critics are now pointing out how Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have been promising amnesty to illegal migrants, ultimately enticing the thousands of people to flood the United States in droves.

When you stop construction of the border wall and dangle amnesty in front of people in incredibly poor countries, they see hope for a better life by coming to America without waiting in line. I don’t blame them for wanting a better life, but breaking the law to enter a country is not a good way to start your life there. We are sending large amounts of money to the countries these migrants are from, and obviously the money is doing nothing to help the people in those countries. It is time not only to review our immigration policies but also to review our foreign aid policies. If the money we are sending is only going to corrupt leaders and not to the people who need it, why should we send money?

After The Narrative Has Been Firmly Established, The Truth Is Revealed

On Saturday Red State posted an article about part of the FBI investigation into the riots in Washington on January 6th.

The article reports:

The last of the Capitol rioters had barely vacated the premises when Nancy Pelosi’s allies began slandering their Republican colleagues, claiming that Republican members of Congress had taken an active role in permitting the demonstrators… indeed, if they were BLM demonstrators, we would be calling them “peaceful”… to enter the Capitol. Baseless allegations were made that some Republican members of Congress allowed rioters to enter the Capitol by having them issued visitor’s passes.

…The whole story reached a crescendo two weeks ago when it was revealed that the FBI had subpoenaed the telephone records of members of Congress.

…This didn’t have the panache of John Brennan having members of Congress subjected to electronic surveillance because they opposed the Iran nuclear deal, but it is close. You can bet that the cell records of members of Congress who are giving the FBI difficulties were thoroughly mined to determine who inside the FBI was leaking information.

Now the inquiry is complete. This is the complete coverage from the New York Times. It is hidden inside a bullsh** story (read Media Continues to Try to Tie President Trump to the Capitol Riot Because They Are Terrified of His Popularity) purporting to link a “person associated with the White House” with a member of the Proud Boys.

The article concludes:

This is just another of the completely false narratives peddled by the Democrats, the media, the National Review, the Bulwark, the Dispatch, and a bunch of pedo-enabling losers that have self-destructed. The sad fact is that the truth probably does not matter. Pelosi’s goal was to tar all the GOP with direct responsibility for the Capitol riot and use those false allegations in the 2022 campaign. The narratives are out there. A viciously partisan press is still circulating them, even the provably false ones. We will see these allegations again in the next election… and the next.

Please follow the link to read the entire article–there are some interesting details included. This is simply another example of the media trying to push forward a narrative that will smear those people who support President Trump and his fight for the average American. The successes of the Trump administration are a genuine threat to the political-media establishment. All Americans need to carefully analyze any news report they hear before drawing a conclusion as to what events actually occurred.

Silliness In Congress

After a while, you have to wonder why Democrats in Congress are so anxious to get President Trump out of the White House. He has eight days left to serve as President, can’t they just leave him alone? I guess not.

The Epoch Times reported yesterday that Representative Alex Mooney, a Republican from West Virginia, blocked Democrats from introducing a resolution via unanimous consent to call on Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove President Donald Trump.

The article reports:

The Democrat-backed resolution calls on Pence and the Cabinet to “declare what is obvious to a horrified Nation: That the President is unable to successfully discharge the duties and powers of his office.”

…Mooney said Pelosi “should not attempt to adopt a resolution of this magnitude without any debate on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives,” noting that “it is wrong to have sent members of Congress home and then try to adopt without any debate a precedent-setting resolution that could imperil our Republic. The U.S. House must never adopt a resolution that demands the removal of a duly elected president, without any hearings, debate, or recorded votes.”

Whatever happened to the Democrat’s calls for unity? I don’t think misusing the 25th Amendment to unlawfully remove a Republican President creates unity.

Principles, Anyone?

Yesterday Just the News posted an article about what seems to be a change of heart on the part of House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

The article notes:

The payroll tax was cut in 2010, under President Obama’s leadership, and extended in 2011 and 2012.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi supported the payroll tax cut under former President Barack Obama but opposes it under President Donald Trump.

In the absence of a stimulus deal in Congress, Trump authorized a payroll tax deferral by executive order on Saturday. The order instructs the Treasury Department to look at forgiving the deferred taxes.

Pelosi referred to the executive action as unconstitutional and argued that the payroll tax cut will harm Social Security and Medicare.

The article includes a statement from Speaker Pelosi in 2011:

In 2010, Obama signed a payroll tax reduction, and Congress extended the cut in 2011 and 2012. Pelosi supported the payroll tax cut at the time.

“Today is a victory for all Americans — for the security of our middle class, for the health of our seniors, and for economic growth and job creation. The American people spoke out clearly and, thanks to President Obama’s leadership, 160 million Americans will continue to receive their payroll tax cut,” Pelosi said in a statement in 2011.

This is another example an action that the Democrats thought was wonderful when President Obama did it, but the Democrats think it is horrible when President Trump does it.
