‘Demsels’ in white stew in their political sins

Americans are getting tired of the thuggish behavior of the sanctimonious Democratic congresswomen in white who have been controlling the majority in the House of Representatives since the 2018 midterm elections.

Their mentally unbalanced leader, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California, leads the laziest, most vindictive House in American history. Pelosi has the poorest, most hyperpartisan record of leadership of any Speaker this generation has ever seen.

She is currently embroiled in controversy over her decision to rip President Donald Trump’s speech during his State of the Union address to Congress last Tuesday.

That night Michigan Rep. Brenda Lawrence, the co-chair of the Democratic Women’s Caucus, said the women stand “against President Trump’s backwards agenda.” She accused him of attacking “the foundation that was built by the women pioneers of this country.”

The congresswomen paraded around in white, wearing “Equal Rights Amendment Yes” buttons and were purportedly celebrating the 100th anniversary of American women winning the right to vote. Yet they have very little bipartisan legislation to show for their almost two years in the House majority. They have spent most of their time chasing fruitless leads to find crimes that they insist Trump committed.

Pelosi delayed the passage of the historic U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade agreement, covering more than $1.3 trillion of commerce, for over one year while she steered the conduct of multiple investigations into Trump and passed two articles of impeachment.

The president touted the average unemployment rate, now lower than under any administration in history, the booming economy and American exceptionalism. Pelosi was busy frowning behind him, refusing to applaud many of his accomplishments, repositioning her dentures and shuffling papers around.

During the illustrious ceremony First Lady Melania Trump awarded talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh the Presidential Medal of Freedom. The president payed tribute to Amy Williams, an Army spouse from Fort Bragg, N.C., and thanked military families around the country for their sacrifice. He also recognized 100-year-old African American Tuskegee airman Charles McGee and his great-grandson who wants to join the Space Force. In response Pelosi ripped Trump’s speech with a flourish as he closed his remarks.

Many average Democrats watching the televised event were horrified and flooded cable channel C-Span with calls disparaging the House Speaker and threatening never to vote for the party again.

Perhaps Pelosi is frustrated that after all her and her legion of ladies have done to tarnish Trump he has emerged from impeachment with unstoppable momentum.

The ladies say Trump is a toxic, corrupt racist who lies with impunity and threatens our democracy by coercing foreign leaders into helping him steal elections, yet the president has not been politically shaken or even stirred. His approval rating bounced to 49 per cent in the Gallup poll last week, his highest in that poll since taking office.

Pelosi’s House took the unprecedented step of launching the third impeachment in history against Trump for offences which are not even constitutionally permissible. Their almost two years of investigations continues to consume the agendas of several House committees.

Trump was impeached on two articles — abuse of power and obstruction of Congress — based on an investigation into whether he attempted to get Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son.

House Democrats are adamant that even though the president was acquitted in the Senate on February 5 the never-ending carousel of investigations will keep whirling.

The lawmakers are busy awaiting rulings on several subpoenas pending in the courts. They are trying to get their hands on Trump’s financial records at Deutsche Bank and testimony from former White House counsel Don McGahn while pursuing new leads into possible wrongdoing. They are also contemplating whether to continue pursuing testimony from former national security adviser John Bolton and perhaps even launching a second impeachment of the president.

The exhausted public has been clamoring for them to turn their attention to the needs of voters, but the prayerful, somber Speaker and her angelic woman army have no such intentions as elections bear down on them in November. Republicans are chafing to oust them from their chamber and their pursuit of power has become all-consuming, even if they have to hold feminism hostage to secure political wins.
