When Nancy Pelosi was again made Speaker of the House after the 2018 elections, she promised to be a fair leader. She even vowed not to divide the county by impeaching then-President Trump. And work with her Republican colleagues.
She has done none of these things.
Over the last few years, Pelosi has made her mark as a vindictive, selfish, and power-hungry politician. She has even gone as far as to fight against her own party. Pelosi passed House rules that criminalized even minor infractions. At one point, you would have been arrested for simply not obeying one of her demands.
But now, some Democrats are getting sick and tired of this soon-to-be powerless tyrant. They are even teaming up with Republicans to oppose her.
Some Democrat lawmakers have expressed displeasure at wearing masks on the House floor, a pivot from the days when Democrats were united against unmasked Republicans…
Violation of her Capitol Building masking rules entails a $500 first-time fine and thereafter $2,500 per violation in perpetuity.
So far, two Democrat House members have spoken out against Pelosi’s ongoing masking mandate. Rep. Dan Kildee (D-MI) told Playbook the policy should be “made sooner rather than later,” noting Pelosi’s medical advisers will have the final say…
“The Ethics Committee has sadly been turned into the mask police, and we’re spending way too much time on mask violation issues,” Wild stated. “When we come back [from recess] … in early March, unless there’s been some new strain or variant, I think it’s time to get rid of the masked mandate.” [Source: Breitbart]
Let’s get real for a minute. A leader, with actual talent and ability, does not bully her colleagues with pointless fines and restrictions. Pelosi actually has fined House members $500 for not wearing a face diaper. Subsequent “violations” cost $2,500. This is total insanity. Instead of doing something to help Americans, Pelosi is wasting her time going after her political rivals.
And that’s only the tip of the iceberg of how Pelosi has abused her power as Speaker. She is currently conducting a “commission” solely dedicated to finding proof that Trump was behind the January 6 “insurrection.” She has also seemingly violated the law by sending Capitol Police to states across the country to spy on Republican congressmen.
It seems Pelosi’s “philosophy” on leading is to bully, harass, and punish those who defy her. She is a not Speaker, but a wanna dictator. As she watches her chances at holding onto the gavel slip away, she becomes more and more deranged in her efforts. The lengths she’s gone to manipulate and extort Congress for her own purposes require a commission of its own.
Republicans better hold her accountable, once they are back in power.
