Pelosi's Prerogative and a President's Persistence

Ignore the in-my-face obvious issues and lend all of my attention to unwarranted, groundless non-issues? Not happening!

deflections-a-democratic-strategy

Nothing new

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's mission has never been about looking out for the best interest of the American people....heavens no!

Her mission, her goal, her fuel, has always been about, nailing President Trump.

Because she chooses to, because she has a rogue political party behind her urging to do so...because she holds the power, because she can...

Because her prerogative says she can!

His offense/crime?

This part has never been made clear and that really doesn’t matter, in the whole scheme of things.

There has been a grasping at straws, since President Trump was elected!

There has been a plan to rid this Country of President Donald Trump, since before day one of his Presidency.

We’ve all seen it. I am not saying anything new here. This isn't an epiphany!

Many Democrats refused to go to his Inauguration, before they knew a single thing about how he was preparing to govern!

They had it in for him.

We will soon find out, just how much they, the establishment, needed (and how far they were/are willing to go) to keep him out or boot him out (via impeachment) should he win.

When nothing worked out for them, as they had planned, the next all-out effort was to regain the House, get Ms. Nancy Pelosi back to her post, as Madam Speaker and then, leave it up to her prerogative, to rid this Country of the man, the swamp can’t allow or afford!

Representative Al Green - Texas

Representative Al Green - Texas

According to the Washington Post...

The day of...Donald Trump's Inauguration, the Washington Post went forth with a story titled, "The Campaign to Impeach Trump has already begun."

Stop.

Backup.

Read that again....

Pretty clear wouldn't you say, crystal clear, as to their goal and what this President is up against and has been up against, since the very beginning.

I remember Representative Al Green, Texas, bringing 'Articles of Impeachment' to the floor of the House, a couple of months later. Do you remember that?
It was not a one time deal for him. He has done so repeatedly, as many other career Democrats have followed suit, taking turns, up and until, Nancy Pelosi was brought back to drive in the nail, utilizing her powerful prerogative.

Present day, we are to completely ignore the transcript of a telephone conversation between President Trump and Ukrainian President Zelensky and instead, focus on the left’s (aka: whistleblowers) thoughts and opinions about the telephone conversation.

If the American people haven't figured out what the Dems/the Left are all about by now, incidentally, I believe they have, regardless of 'the poll of the day', then I have some smoky mountains in the great State of Florida to sell you.

The Return of Pelosi

I give the American people a lot more credit than the pandering, self-promoting Dems, promising to lasso the moon for them, if only, they'll continue to support them.

Granted, the American people did put the Dems back in charge of the House, back in 2018, but that was in the midst of the Russian collusion inquiry and many Republicans (let's just give them the benefit of the doubt) retired early.

There were many things working against the people, in order to get Ms. Pelosi back behind the podium.

Water under the bridge. What matters now, what we are all anxiously anticipating...will Attorney General William Barr and his team get to the root of the real story of 'Russian collusion' and FISA abuses, etc., before the hammer (gavel) drops on President Trump?

Circling the wagons

The Democratic Party and some career Republicans know exactly what they are doing. They know they are doing great harm to this Country and they don't care!

This has never been quite as clear as it is today, in the age of Trump.

They are circling the wagons in order to protect their interests and their power and the mere thought of an outsider coming in from the desert, from across the mountain, seeking to take them out and take them down...

desirous of putting rogue political lifers out of business once and for all, has them doing...whatever it takes!

Where does this leave you and me?

Outside of the circle, that's where!

A recap

To recap; we've had a major newspaper run a story on Inauguration Day about the mission to impeach this President. We've had Representatives introducing 'Articles of Impeachment' left and left, beginning two months after Trump took office.

We all witnessed the Mueller Report go down in flames, along with the author, after several years of breathless anticipation from certain news channel anchors, telling their loyal listeners that...Trump was going to go down in flames.

Today, it’s all about ‘the whistleblowers’, which we are learning a little more each day aren’t concerned citizens, but rather a piece of the puzzle, a part of the plan, to end Trump.

Many private lives have been put through the wringer, some completely left in shambles, all because of a connection to the outsider. All because a wealthy businessman came to town, seeking to get us back on track.

After all has been said, done, tried, failed, has it all come down to, a woman's prerogative....whatever it takes?

As this so-called impeachment 'hearsay' hearing rolls on, it is more and more evident that Adam Schiff is calling all the shots!

Thinking she's saving her butt, Ms.Pelosi allows this mockery to continue, when she could do the right thing and end it today.

Instead...she has yielded all power to Schiff.

This is unfortunate for such a powerful woman and for all women.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on November 08, 2019:

That's it Eric, it's a "gamble", they (the Dems) are gambling with people's lives and livelihood. Shame on them.

It's comparable to the vindictive person in a relationship gone wrong, they can't let go or move on until they've hurt or completely destroyed the other person that saw their true colors and wanted no part of it...of them!

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on November 08, 2019:

So to my knowledge for a POTUS folks vote against and folks vote for the economy. Now this Pelosi seems to be doing strictly the against. Whereas POTUS is doing both. All the in's and out's really matter little in the election cycle.

So it would seem that the Woman's prerogative here is to give up on the financial side. In fact some trade deals she will not even bring to the floor.

So if her gamble on "impeachment" fails that creates a very serious defeat for democrats. Perhaps she is just real gutsy at 79, nothing left to lose.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on November 08, 2019:

I completely agree Shannon.

Bush was treated unfairly too, but he just took it on the chin. Trump isn't designed (not in his DNA) to take it, so he fights back. He doesn't PLAY the D.C. games. For that, he is admired by many, but as we can see....many won't accept it and have become obsessed with their hate for him. It's unprecedented.

Shannon Henry from Texas on November 07, 2019:

Actually, I can see why Ellen is friends with Bush. At least when he was in office, he laughed at himself and with others.

There really are many more important things to worry about and better ways to go about bringing attention to things that they feel are worth bringing awareness to. I've found a lot of inspiration lately in the many of these music artists I've interviewed. One of the ones coming up soon was paralyzed by a tragic accident and he's walking today. Singing too, of course. Stories of inspiration from people like that and other people in my life that I'm blessed to know have helped to motivate me into pursuing things I'd put off for far too long.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on November 07, 2019:

Maybe if the left could laugh a little and find their missing sense of humor, the President could catch a break.

Shannon Henry from Texas on November 07, 2019:

Hahaha...You're full of "punnies", too. You know, like the "conservative" thing to do is actually the "liberal" thing to do. ;) Sometimes I amuse myself a little too much, what can I say? LOL

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on November 07, 2019:

Of course Shannon. I think Ellen had a big 'wake up' call from the 'woke' crowd!

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on November 07, 2019:

Thank you Paula, I have a hard time remaining silent, it is not in my DNA for sure.

It really is incredible.... (searching for the right word here) how far the Washington insiders will go. They don't care who gets hurt, who they destroy, they remain laser-focused on their mission.

I am so glad that a few Conservatives are finally defending Trump and no longer allowing things to go unchallenged.

Shannon Henry from Texas on November 07, 2019:

Speaking of creating a ruckus, thanks for bringing that Ellen thing to my attention. It makes me happy. Besides the fact that she's just funny, her remarks make me glad for the diverse friendships I have. It makes me glad that even that post with your mention of identifying as a dino didn't ruin any lifelong friendships I've had. Although, I've never been super close with any of those ladies, I know them to be compassionate and loving people.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on November 07, 2019:

Yes, I would agree with that Shannon (although you were addressing Eric) I must get my two cents worth in you know. ;)

Suzie from Carson City on November 07, 2019:

Whoa...missed this one but I certainly don't know how! It's loud, clear and totally accurate. You go, girl! I love your spunk, backed by your wisdom and awareness of what the heck is really going on...has been and by God, they aren't giving up any time soon. Until, of course, they will all be forced to shut the "H" up and take their much-earned beatings.

Every dog has his day. Theirs is right around the corner. I just want a front row seat!

Kudos, Angie..as always. Paula

Shannon Henry from Texas on November 07, 2019:

Eric, I told someone the other day that he usually knows exactly what he's doing when he created a ruckus on Twitter. You make a good point.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on November 07, 2019:

Eric, maybe I should look at it that way, so I am not looking at how very screwed up all of this is!

Maybe I will be much calmer, more often. :)

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on November 07, 2019:

Vivian, no because they, the fake media, think President Trump doesn't belong in office to start with, so they are all in on taking him down, hurting him, destroying him, whatever it takes.

It's sad, but true.

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on November 07, 2019:

Do not tell anyone but I kind of like the diversion. Seems like it takes the heat off of matters that are important and the POTUS can do his job. Come on, his opposition to these matters is twitter and soundbite based. His sitting down with China is real as his dealings with Isis and Mexico.

So while one side of the isle is doing nothing except the coup he gets to work on issues they do not even pay attention to -- of course including the media. Perhaps he is playing a game of slight of hand. "Look over here, while I do over there".

Vivian Coblentz on November 07, 2019:

And the Fake News media won't call it like it is--an attempted coup!

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on November 07, 2019:

Eric, I know that I will vote for that.

After all, it is the people's prerogative to vote for continued prosperity for themselves and their neighbors OR a deep state which only cares about prosperity, power and privilege...for themselves.

It's a no brainer!

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on November 07, 2019:

So very interesting. Pending implosion strikes my mind. A leader in a race has a plan for something that is literally not doable? These things are even talking points? I wonder if I would vote on 4 more years of all my neighbors having good jobs?

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on November 04, 2019:

Yep these three are the cream of their crop. Says a lot!

It is pretty clear that the left only wants to better the state of themselves. They say a lot of things, they’ve been great at saying a lot, over many years.

The Logician from then to now on on November 04, 2019:

Funny, isn’t it? The left says they want to better the state of women and minorities but when it comes to choosing someone from those groups they pick people like Pelosi, Hiliary or Obama, not exactly the poster children for character, honesty or morality.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on November 04, 2019:

Hi Carolyn,

Thank you! I haven't been writing about politics as much as I once did either. You are right about it being so toxic right now, I do not recall it ever being this bad.

I doubt a removal from office as well, but I just don't trust the system, as I once did. There are too many people with too much power...and bad intentions.

It is dividing this Nation even further, for no good reason and that to me is the most frustrating part.

In the case of Clinton, I'll never forget him wagging his finger at us and lying through his teeth. He not only did it for the camera and for all of us, he did it under oath. IMHO, he deserved to be removed, there were no doubters, by the time he left office.

I've yet to hear one good reason why Trump should be impeached, much less removed from office.

Thanks for commenting, nice to hear from you.

Carolyn Fields from South Dakota, USA on November 04, 2019:

Well written. Thank you for putting this together. I admire your courage to speak out on this topic. I have stopped writing about politics for the time being, because it's so toxic right now.

I doubt that Trump is in any danger of being removed from office, even if he is "impeached." Remember Bill Clinton? He was, in fact, impeached, but not removed from office.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on November 04, 2019:

I'm trying Shannon, I'm trying here!

Shannon Henry from Texas on November 04, 2019:

Angie, if you're psychic, stop her, for God's sake! Tell everyone her next move. LOL

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on November 04, 2019:

Greenmind has had it in for me ever since I posted a picture of Thor winning the women's cycling competition.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on November 04, 2019:

No doubt!!!

The Logician from then to now on on November 04, 2019:

No I’m saying greenmind and the looney left are on the same page

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on November 04, 2019:

So what you are saying T is that you and GMG are on the same page? I'm not psychic but.....it appears that way. Plus your comments are ON the same page. :)

The Logician from then to now on on November 04, 2019:

AB, there it is! Greenmind nailed it!

what on god's green earth makes “anyone” think they know so much about the inner life of “anyone”

Pelosi may not be a woman, Greenmind just said it. How can we know anything about her or anyone’s inner life?

Lol

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on November 04, 2019:

Hi GMG,

I don't think I am, but it is big business, so maybe I should consider it!

Maybe you lean left and chose to skim through my exact words.

It's a suspicion I have and nothing more.

Do you disagree that the pinnacle, for Jenner was most likely, winning the decathlon?

Just speculating, doesn't make you psychic.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on November 04, 2019:

Hi Shannon,

Yes, at this point, I'm afraid she can. She and other lefties are working feverishly to do whatever they have to do to protect their interests and power and unfortunately for us, it runs deep!

When is the last time you heard a Dem speak of what is in the best interest of the people?

When was the last time you heard a Dem give any credit for the return of manufacturing jobs to small town U.S.A. or showing any excitement whatsoever for historically low unemployment across the board?

You haven't, you won't, because they know that what Trump is doing, hurts them in the long run. They need unemployment and discrimination and job loss, etc..... to exist so they have purpose! That purpose is telling the people that they know, they understand, they feel their pain and ONLY they, can help.

Trump has screwed up everything! ;)

GreenMind Guides from USA on November 04, 2019:

abwilliams what on god's green earth makes you think you know so much about the inner life of Caitlyn Jenner, or any other Jenner, or any other human? Are you psychic?

Shannon Henry from Texas on November 04, 2019:

I get your point that the Dems had it out to impeach Trump right from the start. My idea of what qualifies as a prerogative, though, is that a particular individual or group does something because they can. Now, hear me out, please. I know that you already stated that definition. The part I question is CAN she? Is this really a prerogative she can indulge in? Just because she started the process doesn't mean that they are going about it fairly or legally. Hell, I had to ask just to find out if I was the only one confused about what exactly the impeachable offense is supposed to be. I guess a requirement for working in the field of politics is a willingness to get down and dirty. Sling that mud!

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on November 04, 2019:

T, I don't believe for a second that Bruce (Caitlyn) Jenner will ever achieve the level of happiness and self satisfaction, experienced after winning the decathlon or any of his various medals, throughout an impressive career.

I can't get into his head, but I doubt the transformation has gotten him (her) anywhere close and there may be regrets.

P.S. Since Michelle Obama is gone, Nancy has become the fashion icon, who else could take on that role, Melania?!? Yeah right! I am so over how this couple has been treated, it disgusts me.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on November 04, 2019:

Eric, I bid on new construction jobs and I cannot keep up. The market is thriving. We see all of this for ourselves, with our own eyes and then are told by the left that we aren't seeing it. They think us incapable, but not this current President, he, like Reagan, sees us at our best and knows what we are capable of.

If only, we could get through to the followers of the left's rhetoric.

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on November 04, 2019:

AB I have not visited a place of business in the last year without seeing a "help wanted" sign. My son's public education sets no limits on freedom to learn. Our home has more equity than should be allowed ;-). I live in fighter town USA and our troops morale has never been higher. My wife on the base says sales are skyrocketing in American Made.

And all that coming from California -- crazy. I cannot even imagine in other states.

Our fires are raging but our Pelosi does nothing. Interesting that she would rather impeach than save lives and homes. I got not skin in politics but I can see my life.

The Logician from then to now on on November 04, 2019:

Yeah, AB, well Bruce Jenner won the decathlon, what more do you want as proof he was a real man? but guess what, he wasn’t!

:-)

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on November 04, 2019:

Eric, I have not only gained a respect for President Trump, I admire the manner he which he negotiates the daily obstacles and keeps on keeping on. Not saying that I think he is perfect, no more than I would say that I am, but what he has accomplished in the midst of such ugly, vile behavior coming from the swamp, is admirable!

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on November 04, 2019:

I am happy to be someone who has respected any man who can run the gauntlet and be elected president. Our nation is proof. Our process is sound. Respect for Carter to Teddy I am not qualified to throw a pro football touchdown. I sure as hell am not qualified to judge a POTUS. We get so full of ourselves. We do not step back and admire another. My life is great I wonder if that is because our great presidents? Probably so.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on November 04, 2019:

Valid points all T, it is hard to keep up with the left and definitions and what makes for 'being a woman' vs. feeling like a woman, better yet...being a man that identifies as a female...athlete. Cha-ching...now that's where it's happening these days.

As for Ms. Pelosi, haven't you heard, the left gushes over her femininity; her outfits are to die for, her shoes are exquisite and her small stature seems to tower over Donald Trump. They've deemed her a woman, so that she is! Get with the program.

P.S. Thanks for commenting. ;)

The Logician from then to now on on November 04, 2019:

I’m not sure I agree with your premise, that is, that Pelosi is actually a woman.

By definition a woman used to be biologically capable of bearing offspring however the left has redefined being a woman to be simply a state of mind.

So she may look like a woman, she may dress like a woman, she may say she is a woman (has she ever?) but who can read her state of mind? Maybe by the left’s definition she could be any of dozens of genders they believe exist. If we could only read her mind! Otherwise who can know?

If we could have read Jenner’s mind we’d have known he wasn’t a man but a woman before he knew it.

But your points about prerogative are well taken!
