Pelosi Wants Her Reichstag Fire Moment

, , ,

Germany’s Prime Minister Hermann Goering, with his staff, Berlin on Nov. 4, 1933, after the trial of Marinus Van Der Lubbe accused of responsibility for the Burning of the Reichstag.

Nancy Pelosi is our contemporary Herman Goering, opportunistically seizing on last week’s Capitol Hill Protests as a crisis justifying banning the opposition and enacting one-party rule.

The British Daily Mail reports:

Dems will call on Pence to use the 25th Amendment today, or else Pelosi will begin impeachment of ‘deranged, unhinged and dangerous’ Trump – as she raises fears he will pardon MAGA mob

Nancy Pelosi has written to Democrats saying that, unless Mike Pence invokes the 25th Amendment on Monday, they will proceed with impeachment

Pelosi told 60 Minutes on Sunday that she wants impeachment for Donald Trump so he can’t run for office in the future


But that’s not all! Beyond officially and permanently ostracizing Trump (the Ancient Greeks only banished unpopular leaders for five years), Pelosi is exploring the alluring possibility of deeming that protest an “insurrection” and expelling GOP House members and Senators on the basis of the post-Civil War 14th Amendment, Section 3:

“No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any state, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any state legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any state, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof.”

As Karl Marx observed: “History repeats itself, the first time as Tragedy, the second time as Farce.”

House Rules Already Quietly Modified

Even before Congress responded to the people’s protests by sitting up late to award the election to His Fraudulence, the democrats were already gnawing away at the foundations.

On Tuesday, as the Las Vegas Review-Journal notes:

Democrats eliminated a long-standing rule that allows the minority party to alter legislation on the floor before a vote. Speaker Pelosi and her caucus feared that continuing a practice known as a “motion to recommit” would allow the GOP to force Democrats to cast votes on controversial issues that may hurt them politically in the next election. This fear is even more acute for many moderate members given the rise of the party’s radical progressive wing.

Notably, Republicans never made a similar move when they held the majority. “This is a right that has been guaranteed to the minority for well over a century,” said Rep. Tom Cole, R-Okla. “With today’s changes, the majority is seeking to silence views they are afraid of.”

Next up, Democrats essentially scuttled a requirement that legislation which increases the deficit be offset with cuts elsewhere. With deficits soaring regardless of which party controls what, the mandate was clearly ineffective. Yet the symbolism here is obvious and will allow Democrats to offer budget-busting legislation on a wide array of dangerous progressive priorities without concern for the long-term fiscal ramifications.

Nancy Pelosi: Managing to Bear Up

, ,

The Speaker of the House has not only a small ton of ice cream, we notice, but also not one, but two enormous Sub-Zeros in her mansion on Pacific Heights in San Francisco to console her, not to mention her vinyard on the banks of the Napa River, and a million-dollar condo on the Georgetown waterfront. Odd, isn’t it, how filthy rich the tribunes of the poor and leaders of the war against the rich tend to be?

Senate Democrats Arm the Left With Partisan Intelligence Report

, , , , ,


Spence (Sean Bean): – lnterrogation.

Sam (Robert De Niro): – What ?

Spence: – Methods to withstand interrogation.

Sam: – You’ve done that ?

Spence: -We were taught to hold out indefinitely.

Sam: – Nobody can hold out indefinitely.

Spence: – Ah, is that so ?

Sam: -Everybody has a limit. l spent some time in interrogation… once.

Spence: – They make it hard on you ?

Sam: – They don’t make it easy.

– Yeah, it was unpleasant. l held out as long as l could.

– All the stuff they tried.

– You just can’t hold out for ever.

– lmpossible.

Spence: – How’d they finally get to you ?

Sam: – They gave me a grasshopper.

Spence: – What’s a grasshopper ?

Sam: -Let’s see… That’s two part gin, two part brandy, one part crème de menthe…

–“Ronin” (1998).


What Sam mockingly tells the pretender Spence in “Ronin” (1998) is a truth generally recognized by all adults in the military & the intelligence community: Nobody can resist all forms of coercive interrogation indefinitely.

There is, however, serious dissent on this obvious truth from the left-wing democrat party establishment, and particularly from prominent portions of the Gay commentariat.

Democrats, having just lost control of the Senate, are leaving power in the manner of dead skunk, leaving a terrible odor behind them, with today’s cynical publication of a totally partisan official intelligence report, concluding that enhanced interrogation (not even the trained attack caterpillar!) never worked, the CIA allegedly misinformed the rest of the government about the results of enhanced interrogation, the CIA roughed up some of the prisoners in manners and forms displeasing to the sensibilities of Senate democrats, confinement conditions were bleak, and the CIA was generally naughty, misleading, evasive, and destructive both to good government and the standing of the US in the world(!).

It is a total hatchet job, and it will be interesting to watch over time what the CIA does to democrats, particularly to Nancy Pelosi, in response.

Jose A. Rodriquez Jr. ran the CIA Interrogation Program, and he responded, back in April, to what was obviously coming.

On Thursday, the Senate Intelligence Committee voted to declassify and release hundreds of pages of its report on U.S. terrorist interrogation practices. Certain senators have proclaimed how devastating the findings are, saying the CIA’s program was unproductive, badly managed and misleadingly sold. Unlike the committee’s staff, I don’t have to examine the program through a rearview mirror. I was responsible for administering it, and I know that it produced critical intelligence that helped decimate al-Qaeda and save American lives.

The committee’s staff members started with a conclusion in 2009 and have chased supportive evidence ever since. They never spoke to me or other top CIA leaders involved in the program, or let us see the report.

In other words, that report is just a partisan crock.

Metaphor of the Day

, , , ,

The Obamacare disaster has commentators this morning casting around for new metaphors. The Titanic, The Hindenburg, the Challenger… have all been used.

So far, Tom Maguire’s commenters are winning by hitting on the image juste for the always-histrionic, but now sooo futile Nancy Pelosi: Norma Desmond from “Sunset Boulevard” (1950).
