I watched Nancy Pelosi’s farewell speech today, and I confess I cannot shed a tear or think of any positivity in her reign. This last week has been huge for those who wanted to see a change of the guard and a slow-down of the Progressive slide we have been suffering through. We all looked forward to this end of an era as we sought to win back the House. The Red Wave or Tsunami never took place, but all we need is a majority of one to rip the gavel from Nancy Pelosi’s waving hands and to grind to a halt the Biden spending spree.
Nancy Pelosi has been in Congress for thirty-five years. She has been in Leadership of the House under four presidents for twenty years. In a petty slight of her lips, she only acknowledged three. Pelosi ignored the term of Donald Trump, but we will not ignore her show of disrespect by tearing President Trump’s State of the Union speech to pieces. Pelosi’s time as Speaker can be summed up in two words; Power and corruption. She had absolute control of her caucus, and it was political death not to follow her lead. She was a money-making machine for her Party and her family, which is where the corruption comes into play.
The Pelosi’s have seen their net worth grow to over $120 Million. Some of that is from her $225K Speaker’s salary, but most is credited to her husband, Paul, and his very lucrative stock deals. Numerous deals have netted the Pelosi family millions that many say could not have happened without insider trading. Nancy’s career has been perfect for their retirement fund.
Running for office is a full-time sport for career politicians and a monetary windfall for their friends and family. The salaries for Senators and Congressmen \are fixed, but they have much flexibility with their staff and campaign workers. People like Pelosi and Maxine Waters have created high-paying careers for their children. Great for them and too bad for the American taxpayer. All legal and all bogus. Money is why these people can never walk away from their positions. Do you think a love of country and the flag keeps Diane Feinstein in office as she closes in on her tenth decade?
Pelosi is not walking away, but she is stepping down. She will not run for any leadership position, but I doubt you will see her sitting between Alexandria Cortez and Ilhan Omar. Somebody like Nancy lives for power; after 20 years, she cannot survive without her large staff and Thursday press briefing. She says she wants to continue speaking for the people of San Francisco, but I am curious if that is for the folks who live in homes on the Bay or in tents on the sidewalk.
I can picture Pelosi marching outside the Capitol after the passage of Obamacare, carrying an oversized gavel. The arrogance and show of power over the people is how I will remember Nancy Pelosi. She claims she wants to pass the torch to the new generation of Democrats, that her time has passed. Her favorite to succeed her is Hakeem Jeffries, a young Progressive from New York. I see him cut from the same cloth as Pelosi. He thrives for power, and this is his big break. The only problem with the next generation of Democrats is that they are the indoctrinated Socialists of the future. They have no love of the country and no grasp of its history. They only see how America should be as they were taught. If the Democrats want to destroy America, they can put their support behind the likes of Jeffries. We on the Right will rebuild this great country and make America great again.
