A Race We All Lose
April 12, 2020
I detest pretty much everything about Hillary Clinton.
Her constant lying. Her greed. Her holier than thou stand on damn near everything. Her statement that a quarter of America are a “basket of deplorables” came as no surprise. She’s pretty much always looked down on those of us who don’t agree with her politics.
Her ‘I-was-entitled-to-the-presidency’ attitude is beyond repulsive. Too bad for her, but very good for us, the voters agreed.
As Secretary of State, Hillary allowed four brave Americans, including our Ambassador to Libya, to be murdered in Benghazi, then lied to their families and the American people about it.
She sold a 20% stake in America’s uranium to Russia in return for a large contribution to her foundation. Said foundation, by the way, seems almost entirely engaged in providing the Clinton’s millions for luxury trips to distant destinations, and provides more than half a million in salary for her daughter, Chelsea.
Hillary, and Hillary alone, has always held a very special place in my sentiments, until now that is.
Because now Nancy Pelosi has taken center stage as the Democrat point-person to stop Donald Trump from being as effective for the American people as he could be.
With Pelosi, I’ve found someone just as unlikeable, dishonest, and shameful as Hillary.
It doesn’t actually bother me that Nancy can’t stand President Trump, actually she hates him beyond reason. What irks me is her self-serving monumental ego that insists Trump must be stopped at all costs; no matter how important, meaningful, helpful, or well-intended.
Many Washington observers claim Pelosi is a brilliant political strategist. Really? I don’t get it. Most of the time, she can’t put two sentences together. From what I can see, she shares the intellect of a brick, with no disrespect intended for bricks.
Nancy Pelosi has proven she’ll cheat, lie, and steal to get what she wants. She’s as corrupt as the work week in Washington is short.
Pelosi relished Hillary’s becoming president because she knew she’d be in a position to game the system. Sadly for her, that fantasy went up like a puff of smoke in a hurricane once Trump won.
So did her hope to create a path to citizenship for 20 million illegal immigrants; her dream to raise taxes on American job creators, and her desire to expand Obamacare with a public option.
Once Trump won, it didn’t matter what he did or said, what motivated his actions, or how much a given Trump policy might have helped or protected the American people; Pelosi hated it as much as she hated him. She turned every issue into a vindictive and hateful battle.
At the last couple of State of the Union addresses, she insisted her fellow Democrat female members of Congress all dress like victims from the Handmaid’s Tale. None could applaud, smile, or nod in support of anything Trump might say or report. It didn’t matter if it was record low unemployment for minorities and women, improving education opportunities with charters for inner city kids, or applauding wounded veterans; Trump, and anyone who agreed with anything he said was to be shunned.
The founders would be aghast at her spite, hate, and abuse of power. And to think, she is number 2 in line to assume the presidency.
She knew very well there was no legitimate reason to impeach the president, yet she allowed Maxine Waters to spend three years yelling “IMPEACH 45.” Worse, she allowed Maxine over and over to encourage Democrats to threaten Trump supporters with physical harm.
Then there’s her minions, Adam Schiff and Gerald Nadler. I’d say that between them they amount to a full wit, but I’d be only half right. As proof, I can only offer the observable fact that they follow the dictates of Queen Nancy to the letter. She suggests they jump, and they start looking for a roof.
Pelosi’s corruption of late has run rampant. When Congress was tasked recently with providing relief from the economic fall-out of the Chinese Virus, Pelosi tried to turn it into an abortion-funding-Green-New-Deal-big-government manifesto of left wing wish-list. Sadly, she got much of what she wanted because Republicans didn’t want to bicker. They wanted to get relief out to America’s working families and job creators.
The question remains, which of these two women wins the award as most dreadful human being: Hillary or Pelosi? From what I can see, It’s a dead heat, neither wins. You can be sure though as long as Pelosi is Speaker, all of America will lose.
