Ann Coulter Rallies Around Nancy Pelosi as Democrats Abandon Her

Published

on

Following the fourth consecutive special election loss for the Democrats, much of the party has been expressing their disapproval of Nancy Pelosi’s leadership — but Republicans, especially Ann Coulter, are rooting for her to stay.

Democrats were quick to turn on Pelosi after Jon Ossoff’s stunning defeat in Georgia, even after running the most expensive campaign for a House seat in history. The party has also lost special elections in Kansas, Montana, and South Carolina.

Congressman Seth Moulton immediately declared that perhaps it was time for “new leadership at the top,” also tweeting that the “Ossoff race better be a wakeup call for Democrats.”

Cher, one of the Democratic Party’s most vocal cheerleaders on Twitter also expressed her doubts about Pelosi’s ability to deliver.

“Admire & respect Nancy Pelosi, but in ‘every’ race, GOP runs against her,” Cher tweeted.

Others were less kind, including Rep. Filemon Vela — who asserted that only an “idiot” would believe that Democrats could win under Pelosi’s leadership.

“I think you’d have to be an idiot to think we could win the House with Pelosi at the top,” Vela told Politico. “Nancy Pelosi is not the only reason that Ossoff lost. But she certainly is one of the reasons.”

Even the ultra-liberal Daily Beast published a story directly pointing the finger at Pelosi. In an article titled ‘Wake Up, Democrats. Ossoff Didn’t Lose the Election, Pelosi Did,’ Matt Lewis wrote that many calls for her to retire may be “concern trolling.” He concluded his piece by stating, “just because it’s concern trolling, doesn’t mean it ain’t true.”

Meanwhile, Republicans want to keep the 77-year-old leading the party for as long as possible.

A report from the Washington Post found that Pelosi and her 98% name recognition did in fact hurt Ossoff. The paper found that “the most prominent and effective hit on the Democratic candidate was to tie him to the congresswoman from San Francisco.”

On Thursday, Coulter posted a hilarious string of tweets making the case for keeping Pelosi around as long as possible.

“We, as conservatives, MUST keep Nancy Pelosi in place as Minority Leader of the House!  We should have rallies for her,” Coulter began.

In Coulter’s next tweet, she wrote “we also need a gofundme campaign to ensure Nancy Pelosi’s longevity as House minority leader.”

She didn’t stop there though, Coulter continued on to assert that “it’s bad enough that we lost Harry Reid, we can’t lose Pelosi too!”

“It’s defeatist to think Nancy Pelosi’s leadership coming is coming to an end. BULLSH*T!!!  She has another 20 good years!” Coulter declared.

“It’s not important that Pelosi remembers everything she says. Memory isn’t everything it’s cracked up to be,” Coulter added.

“After that, they can just keep Pelosi’s head alive in a hyperbaric chamber. Even if they keep her voice going, like Alexa …” Coulter concluded her Twitter storm.

Judging by the thousands of retweets she garnered, it appears that Republicans agree.

Congress Uses Fake Russia-Taliban Report as Excuse to Keep U.S. Troops in Afghanistan

Another victory for the war party.

Published

on

Democrats are seizing upon a fake news report alleging that Russia has funded Taliban mercenaries to kill U.S. soldiers in order to make it more difficult for troops to be pulled from Afghanistan, thus undermining President Trump’s foreign policy agenda.

The House Armed Services Committee voted on Wednesday to make it more difficult for Trump to pull troops out of Afghanistan. It would force several certifications to be met before Trump could bring troops home. Republicans in the committee joined the Democrats to undermine Trump with the approval of this National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) amendment.

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), the neoconservative who supports Bush-era globalism, said the measure “lays out, in a very responsible level of specificity, what is going to be required if we are going to in fact make decisions about troop levels based on conditions on the ground and based on what’s required for our own security, not based on political timelines.” It was approved by a 45-11 vote.

The amendment requires an assessment to determine whether or not “state actors have provided any incentives to the Taliban, their affiliates, or other foreign terrorist organizations for attacks against United States, coalition, or Afghan security forces or civilians in Afghanistan in the last two years, including the details of any attacks believed to have been connected with such incentives” before troops can be removed from the country.

Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA) bragged about how the measure will make sure the U.S. does not leave the region and more American lives are put in jeopardy for a war effort that is largely recognized to be a lost cause.

“There’s been bipartisan criticism of what a weak deal [Trump] got with the Taliban, a deal that is already falling apart,” Moulton said. “Now we learned that he was making this deal at the same time as there were bounties on the heads of American troops, American sons and daughters. We clearly need more oversight over what the president is doing in Afghanistan.”

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who is the most eloquent voice for an “America First” foreign policy in the House, opposed the measure because of its obvious implications against peace.

“A great nation does not force the next generation to fight their wars, and that’s what we’ve done in Afghanistan,” Gaetz said. “I think the best day to have not had the war in Afghanistan was when we started it, and the next best day is tomorrow.

“I don’t think there’s ever a bad day to end the war in Afghanistan,” he added. “Our generation is weary of this and tired of this.”

The defense industry is pushing the Russia bogeyman yet again, in order to create xenophobic outrage and a pretense to keep troops occupying in the region. The Pentagon has reported that Russia is trying to expedite the removal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, but they are painting this news as if it is a bad thing.

“As of February, the Russian government was working with the central government, regional countries, and the Taliban to gain increased influence in Afghanistan, expedite a U.S. military withdrawal, and address security challenges that might arise from a withdrawal,” a report from the Pentagon said.

“Russia has politically supported the Taliban to cultivate influence with the group, limit the Western military presence, and encourage counter ISIS operations, although Russia publicly denies their involvement,” they added.

The political establishment, including the military-industrial complex, is pulling out all the stops to sabotage President Trump and deprive him of achieving his goals before November’s election.
