Nancy Pelosi Wants to See President Trump ‘In Prison’

The rhetoric from the Speaker of the House is the most aggressive she’s used thus far against the President.

Published

Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was quoted as telling members of her caucus that she’d like to see President Donald Trump in prison, in a meeting on Tuesday night.

The rhetoric from the senior Democrat is new to the sitting House Speaker. She was speaking to Democratic Members of Congress in a caucus meeting about potential impeachment of the President, and framed her desire for Trump’s impeachment in a manner designed to deter calls for removal from office. Impeachment proceedings would be widely seen as embarrassing for the Democratic Party and a waste of time for the wider American public.

I don’t want to see him impeached, I want to see him in prison.

It’s unclear as to what crimes Pelosi believes Trump has committed that merit him a prison term. Democrats were meeting to coordinate strategy in response to the flop of the Mueller Report, which completely failed to substantiate any evidence of criminal acts committed by President Trump in coordination with the Russian government.

Pelosi also expressed her belief that impeachment proceedings so close to a Presidential election would be imprudent, suggesting a possibility that she’d simply change her mind and ignore the general public if Trump secured re-election in 2020.

Pelosi’s endorsement of Trump’s imprisonment is indicative of a broad consensus inside the party to see the President either jailed or legally prosecuted for supposed crimes. Democrats couldn’t care less about institutional norms cautioning against the jailing of political opponents- they’ll gladly do whatever it takes to get the big bad orange man, even if there aren’t any actual crimes for which to get him.

As the weak leader of the Democratic Party fails to make a case against a Deep State-led witch hunt, the United States proceeds further along on the path to a Banana Republic in which political leaders wantonly use the “justice” system to punish their political opponents.

Arizona’s Paul Gosar Proposes Amending Coronavirus Package to Replace Pork with $10,000 Stimulus Checks

Gosar wants direct aid to the American people.

Published

Representative Paul Gosar of Arizona has proposed that the federal government pay stimulus checks of $10,000 to Americans beleaguered by the coronavirus pandemic, adopting an approach that would prioritize direct payments to individuals over payments to state and local governments. Gosar’s Amendment, offered on Friday night, would also replace payments to extend federal unemployment benefits.

As the American Rescue Plan currently stands, $1,400 stimulus checks to American taxpayers who filed less than $75,000 in income in 2018 make up $422 billion- a mere 22% of the total spending in the relief package. Gosar’s proposal would replace much of the questionable spending with direct relief.

If the federal government intends to go ‘all-in’ on deficit spending in response to the coronavirus recession, Gosar’s proposal would ensure that the money is spent directly on the livelihood of American taxpayers. Less than half of the spending of Biden’s stimulus is directly targeted towards taxpayers, with education, energy, transport and state governments receiving almost as much money as the American people under Biden’s $1.9 trillion plan.

Biden’s pork proposal can easily be retooled to prioritize direct spending to Americans, be it in the shape of stimulus checks or buffed unemployment benefits to Americans who have lost their jobs in the recession. Instead, the establishment Democrat has opted to prioritize payments to powerful lobby groups and corporate institutions.

The American Rescue Plan passed the House in a Friday night vote. Should the massive spending package fail to pass the Senate in budget reconciliation, congressional leaders may be left with no choice but to consider proposals such as Gosar that replace federal spending with direct relief to the American people.
