GLOVES OFF: Trump Calls Pelosi a ‘Third-Grade Politician’ in Contentious Face-to-Face Meeting

The President is sick of these Democrat witch hunters.

Reports from today’s meeting between President Donald Trump and Democratic Party leaders, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Sens. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Steny Hoyer (D-MD), show that the President is ready for war and no longer pulling any punches against his adversaries.

Following the meeting, Trump and Pelosi bashed each other publicly and called each other unhinged. It was clear that Trump’s aggressive and biting rhetoric had really flustered Pelosi.

Trump is demonstrating he will not play ball with political opposition that is desperate to evict him from office undemocratically under any circumstances. The White House is putting the blame on the Democrats for storming out of the meeting abruptly after they were triggered by Trump’s remarks.

“The President was measured, factual and decisive, while Speaker Pelosi’s decision to walk out was baffling, but not surprising. She had no intention of listening or contributing to an important meeting on national security issues. While Democratic leadership chose to storm out and get in front of the cameras to whine, everyone else in the meeting chose to stay in the room and work on behalf of this country,” White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham said.

Trump kept trolling Pelosi on Twitter, posting a photograph from the meeting when Pelosi was throwing a child’s tantrum:

Trump has already gotten Pelosi to blink, as she and other House Democratic leaders like Rep. Adam “Shifty” Schiff (D-CA) are too scared to put the impeachment inquiry against Trump to a formal vote:

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) has said that he “may not” put the impeachment inquiry up to a vote in the House, as Democratic Party leaders prepare to push the measure unilaterally.

The House Intelligence Committee Chairman could be worried about putting House Democrats who serve in more conservative districts on the record heading into next year’s contentious general elections.

“We may have a vote on an impeachment proceeding, or we may not have a vote. Ultimately that will be the decision that we make together with our leadership. But no one should be under the apprehension or misapprehension that were we to vote and authorize, by the full vote of the House, an impeachment inquiry that that will in any way stop the White House complaints, attacks, etc,” Schiff said at an event in New York City on Monday.

“They will just move on to the next hurdle they want to put in the way. So, we should be clear about what is happening here. This is merely an effort to delay, distract, deter. And we will not be delayed, and we won’t be distracted, and we will not be deterred,” he added…

Schiff is acting like he does not care about the implications that a vote on the impeachment inquiry may have during next year’s election.

“Let the chips fall where they may,” he said during the Monday event.

But the Trump administration and Congressional Republicans are calling Schiff’s bluff. They continue to demand a full vote on the impeachment inquiry, and certainly would point out the Democrats in conservative-leaning districts who joined in on their party’s extreme partisan witch hunt against the President.

Democrats are already getting a taste of what they will have to face off against if they actually go through with impeaching Trump, and they are not liking it one bit.

He Found His Spine: Vulnerable Senator Cory Gardner Vows to Support Trump’s SCOTUS Nominee

Gardner found his backbone.

Published

Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) has often been at odds with the Trump movement, being a favorite of the GOP establishment’s Senate Leadership Fund.

This is why his recent declaration that he will be supporting President Donald Trump’s choice to succeed the deceased Ruth Bader Ginsburg is so surprising. He made the announcement in a Twitter post on Monday.

“When a President exercises constitutional authority to nominate a judge for the Supreme Court vacancy, the Senate must decide how to best fulfill its constitutional duty of advice and consent,” Gardner said in his official statement.

“I have and will continue to support judicial nominees who will protect the Constitution, not legislate from the bench, and uphold the law. Should a qualified nominee who meets this criteria be put forward, I will vote to confirm,” he added.

The president’s pick for the Supreme Court will certainly fit Gardner’s criteria. Trump has announced that he will be appointing a woman to the bench.

One top contender – Amy Comey Barrett – recently made a trip to the White House, as Big League Politics has reported:

Judge Amy Coney Barrett visited the White House on Monday, as President Donald Trump zeroes in on selecting a nominee to fill the vacant seat on the US Supreme Court.

Barrett is reportedly a front-runner for the judicial nomination. She’s a generally conservative judge, with a staunch pro-life record. Her track record on immigration law issues is generally conservative.

Barrett currently serves as a circuit judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has advised President Trump that she is his preferred candidate for the seat on the court.

President Trump had confirmed that he plans to nominate a woman to fill the seat of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who died of complications from pancreatic cancer on Friday.

Democrats have launched a full-fledged fit urging President Trump to give them a break and decline to nominate a conservative justice, but they won’t be so lucky. Republican Senators and President Trump have rallied around the notion of appointing a justice before the November election, fulfilling their constitutional responsibilities.

Trump confirmed that he would be revealing the identity of his judicial nominee on Friday or Saturday, taking a few extra days to vet candidates. Florida Judge Barbara Lagoa is reportedly another candidate being considered for the nomination.

It’ll be inherently harder for incensed, power-thirsty Democrats to attack a female judicial candidate. Maybe they’ll alienate swing female voters through waging a scorched earth campaign to block the confirmation of Barrett, who is a mother of seven.

The Republicans have a great opportunity to score a major political victory and really stick it to the extreme Left with this expedited SCOTUS confirmation. The fact that a moderate like Gardner is on board is a great sign that the confirmation is likely to occur before November’s election.
