Pressure Mounts on Pelosi as GOP Leaders Want Maxine Waters Punished

If Pelosi doesn’t act, someone else will.

Maxine Waters

For as many times as we’ve heard the liberal left groan on about the “incitement to insurrection” that they failed to pin on former President Donald Trump, you would think that the liberal left would be a little more careful with their words than they have been.

But no.  Instead, Congresswoman Maxine Waters is facing a cavalcade of criticism over her decision to stoke the flames of violence in this nation, telling followers point-blank to be “more confrontational” in regard to the trial of Derek Chauvin – the former Minneapolis police officer who knelt on George Flowd’s neck as he died.

Now, some of the GOP’s biggest names are pressing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to take action.

House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy on Sunday night pressed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to take action against Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) for “inciting violence” in remarks she made in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, this weekend.

McCarthy said that if Pelosi does not act, he intends to take action of his own against Waters for her remarks encouraging violence in Minnesota if a jury does not find former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin guilty in his trial in the death of George Floyd.

In a tweet, he said:

Maxine Waters is inciting violence in Minneapolis — just as she has incited it in the past. If Speaker Pelosi doesn’t act against this dangerous rhetoric, I will bring action this week.

— Kevin McCarthy (@GOPLeader) April 19, 2021

Waters has a history of incitement as well, having implored followers years ago to confront conservatives in public, and to make them feel “unwelcome”.

That rhetoric preceded a number a incidents in which West Wing allies of then-President Trump were shouted out of restaurants and other public spaces.

Biden Talks 2024 Running Mate as Dems Look to Replace Him on Ticket

How oblivious can a President be?

Published

on

President Joe Biden, for perhaps the first time since he took office a year ago, is getting ahead of himself.

Our nation has largely found itself lambasting Sleepy Joe as one of the nation’s most reluctant leaders.  He was coerced into running for office in the first place, as the Democrats considered him the only solution for swaying midwestern moderates away from Donald Trump’s sometimes brash behavior. and he has governed very much like a man whose heart wasn’t in it to begin with.

This has led to no shortage of troubles for the Biden administration, all of which have been distilled down into some of the most abhorrent approval rating numbers in the modern era.  What’s more, there are a vast number of Democrats who recognized that he’ll be slaughtered in the 2024 election unless things change drastically, and many are openly suggesting that another candidate may be in order.

Despite this reality, Biden seems obliviously hellbent on having a rerun ticket in three years’ time.

President Biden said during a press briefing Wednesday that he expects Vice President Kamala Harris to be his running mate again in 2024 if he chooses to run, saying, “I think she’s doing a good job.”

And also:

Asked if he was satisfied with Harris’ work on voting rights after putting her in charge of the issue, and whether he would commit to making her his running mate in the next election if he runs, Biden said, “yes and yes.”

Asked to expand, Biden said, “there’s no need to. She’s going to be my running mate, number one. And number two, I did put her in charge. I think she’s doing a good job.”

Barring some catastrophic change in public opinion, perhaps former President and presumptive 2024 GOP candidate Donald Trump should go ahead and start picking out his cabinet.

Stephanie Grisham Makes Wild Claims About ‘Secret Meetings’ Ahead of Jan. 6th

The clear-headed among us will recognize this nothing-burger for what it is, however.

Published

on

Not everything is a spy novel, or a Hollywood blockbuster.  Not every little political machination in our nation is some sort of clandestine and seismic event.  This is something that we all must remember during the hyperbole-laden headline-mongering that the January 6th committee is looking to drum up.

The group’s very existence appears to be hinged on the idea that Donald Trump is a wannabe dictator of some sort who tried to take over America 12 months and 2 weeks ago.  They appear ready to figuratively die on this hill, and they have no qualms with taking the absence of knowledge and fashioning it into something sinister – much like the conspiracy theorists that they love to deride so much.

For instance, there are now headlines swirling around the mainstream media that tell of “secret meetings” that Trump was having just ahead of the attack on the Capitol – the subject and substance of which is undeniably unknown.

Yet still, these are presented as insidious incidents that somehow prove something that they’ve been looking to prove for a long time…despite our complete lack of knowledge regarding the actual facts of the matter.

Former White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham told the House committee investigating the Capitol riot that former President Donald Trump had secret meetings in his residence in the days running up to January 6, The Guardian reported.

Two sources told The Guardian that she told the committee that Trump held the meetings, and that only a few of his aides were aware of them.

She said she was not sure exactly who attended but identified Trump’s chief of staff, Mark Meadows, and the White House chief usher Timothy Harleth, as two people who scheduled and directed participants to the meetings, The Guardian reported.

The infotainment industry’s sources claim that Grisham’s testimony was “more significant” than expected, but there is nothing unusual about the sitting US President having meetings in which not every single solitary person in the White House is included.

Nonetheless, Grisham’s nothing-burger continues to gain traction in the media.
