Nancy Pelosi Punts Impeachment Talk Despite Massive Democratic Backlash

Pelosi is attempting to play that “4D chess”

Published

Nancy Pelosi truly believes that she has the upper hand on President Trump.

How else can anyone in the democratic party explain her unwillingness to bow to the whims of nearly the entire remainder of her party?

Pelosi has come out swinging against President Trump, but her lack of meaningful contact has made her a figurative strikeout victim on more than one occasion.  Even with Robert Mueller throwing her a metaphorical creampuff to blast into the bleachers yesterday, Pelosi is whiffing at the pitch.

This is because Pelosi is attempting to play that “4D chess” that the President has been said to be playing, and by not impeaching the President, Madame Speaker believes that she will be able to avoid an embarrassing defeat just before the 2020 elections.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler resisted pressure from the left to open an impeachment inquiry on Wednesday, following special counsel Robert Mueller’s announcement he’s closing his office and would not provide information beyond his already public report in any appearance before Congress.

Both Democratic leaders pledged to continue the House’s various investigations into alleged wrongdoing by President Donald Trump and maintained all options — including impeachment — remain on the table. But, Pelosi noted, only about 15% of House Democrats are “outspoken on impeachment” at this time.

Pelosi’s plans seems to be stalling for more information, in order to push the talk back until after the election.

“Nothing is off the table,” said Pelosi.

She later reiterated what she has said before, that impeachment must come after all the facts are known.

As the 2020 campaigns heat up, however, even those who were formerly opposed to impeachment have been coming around.

Cory Booker, for example, responded to Mueller’s press conference by saying that impeachment proceedings should begin “immediately” – a far cry from his previous, Pelosi-like stance.

Barr Labels Seattle, New York City, And Portland As ‘Anarchist Jurisdictions’

Published

Attorney General William Barr has come out and labeled the cities of New York, Seattle, and Portland as “anarchist jurisdictions,” stating they have “permitted violence and destruction of property to persist,” after the president signed an executive order to limit federal funds sent to these places in the U.S. The announcement came via the Justice Department on Monday morning, saying the leadership in these three cities “have refused to undertake reasonable measures to counteract criminal activities” for months now following the death of George Floyd, which led to an explosion in violent protests, riots, and looting. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “When state and local leaders impede their own law enforcement officers and agencies from doing their jobs, it endangers innocent citizens who deserve to be protected, including those who are trying to peacefully assemble and protest,” Barr said Monday. “We cannot allow federal tax dollars to be wasted when the safety of the citizenry hangs in the balance. It is my hope that the cities identified by the Department of Justice today will reverse course and become serious about performing the basic function of government and start protecting their own citizens.” Trump’s early September memorandum stated that “it is the policy and purpose of the United States Government to protect the lives and property of all people in the United States from unlawful acts of violence and destruction” and that “without law and order, democracy cannot function.” The president said that “anarchy has recently beset some of our States and cities” and claimed that “for the past few months, several State and local governments have contributed to the violence and destruction in their jurisdictions by failing to enforce the law, disempowering and significantly defunding their police departments, and refusing to accept offers of Federal law enforcement assistance.” He…

Tom Cotton Weighs In On Filling RGB Seat: Democrats Who Voted For Kavanaugh Won Reelection; Those That Didn’t, Lost

Published

Sen. Tom Cotton made a very good argument for why Democrats should vote in favor of filling the SCOTUS seat left vacant by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, by pointing out that those Democrats who supported Kavanaugh got reelected, while those that voted against him didn’t. This is a great strategy. What most Democrats want more than anything is to do maintain power and stay in office so they can get paid to do nothing, and they are willing to do whatever it takes to do so. Cotton knows that, hence, bringing up this very valid point. via The Daily Wire: “In 2014, the American people elected a Republican majority to the Senate to put the brakes on President Obama’s judicial nominations,” Cotton said during an interview on Fox News. “In 2018, we had a referendum on this question, just a month before the 2018 midterms. We had the vote on Justice Kavanaugh. There could not have been a clearer mandate because the American people didn’t just re-elect Republicans, they expanded our majority. They defeated four Democratic senators who voted against Justice Kavanaugh. They re-elected the one Democratic senator who did vote for Justice Kavanaugh.” “So we have a clear mandate to perform our constitutional duty. That’s what the Senate majority will do now. That’s what we did back in 2016 as well,” Cotton continued. “The Senate majority is performing our constitutional duty and fulfilling the mandate that the voters gave us in 2016 and especially in 2018.” Cotton later added that people should not “discount Democratic votes either” in the upcoming hearings after President Donald Trump announces who he is nominating to the nation’s highest court. https://youtu.be/0N2I3GVO_q4 We absolutely need to make sure that a true, pro-life, conservative appointee is confirmed and placed on the Supreme Court, as…
