It was ruled today by the House that Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) violated the chamber’s rules when she referred to President Donald Trump as a “racist” on the House floor.
The House voted to keep her words in the record despite her violation by a vote of 231-190, and also allowed Pelosi to keep debating on the House floor.
“Every single member of this institution, Democratic and Republican, should join us in condemning the president’s racist tweets,” Pelosi said in violation of the rules.
“To do anything less would be a shocking rejection of our values and a shameful abdication of our oath of office to protect the American people,” she added.
The rules, which go back to the days of founding father Thomas Jefferson and his writings, ban House members from using language that is “personally offensive” to the President, although they are permitted to criticize him in an official capacity.
“As such, remarks may not refer to the President as a racist, having made ‘racial slurs’ or ‘racial epithets’” the Jefferson’s Manual states.
Rep. Justin Amash (I-MI), usually a stickler for rules and procedure, voted to let Pelosi slide on her rule-breaking behavior.
The liberal media is singing Amash’s praises for once again doing the bidding of the Democrats:
.@justinamash votes with Dems to oppose "taking down" Pelosi's remarks calling Trump's tweets racist. Someone should offer that guy a committee seat!

Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) was forced to announce that Pelosi had violated House rules in her rant against President Trump’s alleged racism.
“The words used by the gentlewoman from California contained an accusation of racist behavior on the part of the President,” Hoyer said. “The words should not be used in debate.”
House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) took Pelosi to task for her lack of professionalism in breaking the rules.
“What we just saw was a very sad day in this House — probably a historic day, so the very person who is supposed to uphold the rules broke the rules of the House,” he said to reporters.
“Are they going to treat her different? You couldn’t even find a Democrat to stay in the chair to read what the parliamentarian decision is,” he added. “Decorum matters. The rules matter.”
House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-NC) was also appalled by Pelosi’s outrageous behavior, as the Democrats become more unhinged in the age of Trump.
“Regardless of what the rules say, it appears political statements will rule the day,” Meadows said to reporters.
“We would be well served as an institution to not become like some of our allies’ parliament debate — have a more civil discord,” he added.
Pelosi was unrepentant about her rule breaking and takes no responsibility for her actions.
“I’m proud of the attention that is being called to it because what the president said was completely inappropriate against our colleagues, but not just against them, but against so many people in our country to say ‘Go back where you came from,’” she said.
President Trump is making the Democrats show their true colors, and it is not pretty. The House voted affirmatively tonight on a resolution condemning Trump over patriotic tweets he made over the weekend against socialist Democrats.
Deranged Democrat Demands Prosecution of 40,000 Trump Supporters Who Were OUTSIDE Capitol
Guilt by association.
Texas Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee implied that every protestor who was outside of the Capitol on January 6th should face criminal prosecution in a Tuesday tweet threat, utilizing a “guilt-by-association” theory more commonly associated with the criminal justice system of third world countries.
Jackson Lee falsely claimed that the 40,000 protestors who arrived in the area of the Capitol in January all intended to overturn the election by killing the Speaker of the House, Mike Pence, and Members of Congress. In reality, there’s little to no reason that anyone outside of small handful of easily manipulated cosplayers intended to become seriously violent.
2/4 alleged that 40,000 protesters were in DC with the mindset to overturn a legitimate election and to kill the Speaker, the Vice President, and Members of Congress, in that instance, only 300 persons have now been arrested and are being prosecuted. What kind of justice is that?

Only a small minority of the protestors present at the January 6th protest engaged in any criminal trespassing and violent conduct. Peaceful protestors present at the event in fact urged those breaking boundaries to stop, likening them to Antifa criminals. Hundreds of individuals present at the event are being prosecuted- in some cases, on dubious grounds. Jackson Lee’s proposal would criminalize peaceful protest in a direct fashion.
Jackson Lee compared the peaceful protestors to Portland’s enduring anarchist criminal movement, ignoring that the January 6th event hasn’t repeated on a nightly basis in a fashion analogous to the anarcho-tyrannical city. While street criminals have been arrested at the Portland protests, Multnomah County’s left-wing prosecutor, Mike Schmidt, has consistently dropped criminal charges against nearly every arrestee involved in left-wing street violence.
1/4 Testimony today on the Hill evidences that in the Portland protests, a thousand people were arrested. People protesting against the violence that was evidenced in the George Floyd murder. People wanting good things to happen. In Washington DC on January 6th, where it is

Lee also likened left-wing rioters in Portland to “good people wanting good things to happen,” excusing systemic violence because she supports the aims of those who commit it.
Under the fist of anarcho-tyranny, there is no such thing as a neutral standard of “law.” There’s domination- impunity for those who obey those who wield the levers of political power, and severity against those who dare to challenge it though peaceful protest.
