Pelosi says there’s an “enemy within” the House

| January 29, 2021

This more incitement of violence than anything Trump ever did, but I expect no less from a woman who’s made a career out of petty name-calling and fear mongering. From the AP wire;

Lawmakers face threats of violence from an “enemy” within Congress, and more money is needed to protect them, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday, a startling acknowledgment of escalating internal tensions over safety since this month’s Capitol attack by supporters of former President Donald Trump.

The California Democrat’s remarks came as the acting chief of the Capitol Police said separately that “vast improvements” are needed to protect the Capitol and adjacent office buildings, including permanent fencing. Such barricades have ringed the complex since the deadly Jan. 6 riot, but many lawmakers have long resisted giving the nation’s symbol of democracy the look of a besieged compound, and leaders were noncommittal about the idea.

Pelosi focused her comments on the anxiety and partisan frictions that have persisted in Congress since Trump supporters’ assault on the Capitol, which led to five deaths. She told reporters she thinks Congress will need to provide money “for more security for members, when the enemy is within the House of Representatives, a threat that members are concerned about.”

Asked to clarify what she meant, Pelosi said, “It means that we have members of Congress who want to bring guns on the floor and have threatened violence on other members of Congress.”

She’s supposed to be leading the House, not dividing it. I guess she didn’t get President Biden’s memo about this being a time to…you know…the thing…like where you all…uh…stop the fussin’ and a feudin’…COME ON, Man!

    How dare any member not in the glow of Glorious Leader Nasty Pelousy try to exercise any of the rights guaranteed by the Constitution?
    Next up, we have to confiscate everyone’s firearms to make the country safe. And shut all of them up, lest they say something that hurts a prog’s feelings.

    I will take great pleasure in reading her O’BITCH uary…soon!

    #HouseDrinker got a good deal on that Tesla stock.

  4. Graybeard says:

    What she is doing is preparing for a forceful ejection of duly elected members of the House and a militarized fortification of the buildings so that they can make the US like Venezuela.

    By this time everyone should be able to tell that whatever they accuse others of doing is just what they are planning on doing themselves.

  5. Green Thumb says:

    She is just stirring the pot.

    The “enemy” are the voices she has been hearing in her head.

    We need new, younger and more rationale folks in leadership on both sides of the isle.

    Age and experience may make you wiser, but it can also make you bitter.

    I wonder if she owns any rental real estate in SF? Her laziness and political playbook” are hurting her wealthy constituents.

  6. Hack Stone says:

    Before you know it, some disgruntled malcontent will start shooting up ballfields of Representatives from the opposing party. Oh, never mind.

    • OWB says:

      Nobody is supposed to remember any of the attacks and murders from HER side of the aisle Oh, no. Not supposed to remember any of that.

      She is something. Not sure just how it should be characterized. Demented? Delusional? Self-serving on steroids?? Whatever it is, it is beyond dangerous.

      Accuse others of that which you have already done, expecting the rest of the country to not notice? Well, that’s not gonna happen.

      • Only Army Mom says:

        Not to be argumentative but I beg to differ. Not only do they expect no one to notice, they will ensure it is so. With the willing assistance of their media lapdogs.

        • OWB says:

          Gonna be rather difficult to hide. They are concurrently accusing others of doing what they are doing today as well as what they did last week, last month and for years. They insisted upon having a trial in the Senate at the same time they are saying much worse things at every opportunity. Even their lapdog media coconspirators are having trouble spinning it all away.

          She, and others, take to the mics and have the media pulling their hair out trying to figure how to cut the live feed.

        • Ret_25X says:

          the media are not the lapdogs. The elected ones are.

          The media and tech corps own them and they are merely puppets.

          That is what wallstreetbets has demonstrated.

          So for the Dumbkopf, your “masters” are the elite .01% of the wealthy you pretend to hate.

    “Pelosi says there’s an “enemy within” the House”

    She only needs to step away from the mirror…..

    Ocrazio Cortex said the same thing yesterday. This is anew D-rat Progda talking point. They are getting ready for their own night of the long knives.

    • UpNorth says:

      Yeah, now AOC says she’s “terrified” of Republicans. Which really means anyone she disagrees with.
      She wants anyone with an ‘R’ next to their name expelled from the House and Senate, and says out loud that they’re murderers who just haven’t succeeded in murder….yet.

    Nan IS the enemy… along with her (D) friends.

    Don’t think people are buying what Democrats are selling out there.

      There’s gonna be a lot more “buyer’s remorse” in the coming weeks and months…

    • Hack Stone says:

      Taking career advice from John Kerry, they can install solar panels. Unfortunately for all of these workers in the energy industry who lost their jobs since January 20, 2021, there was only one open position for marrying the widow to the Heinz fortune, and John Kerry got that job.

    • OWB says:

      Yeah, sure. All those guys can waltz over and get them some jobs welding up solar panels. Ya know, because there are sooo many companies building solar panels and welders are in high demand in that sector of manufacturing. Uh-huh.

      Or they can simply code their way through it.

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      Loads of people aren’t buying their shit, and I think that’s one source of her side’s runaway paranoia and projection, THEY ARE just what they accuse everyone else of being, I wonder just what propaganda old Major Moonbat from UC Berzerkely would spout off about this?

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      That guy has all the sympathy from me that I can funnel over in his direction.

      Jesus Christ on a crutch, the repercussions from what Biden was poked into doin – because he’s too dumb and disconnected to even think about doing it on his own – are going to be long and deep and a huge lot of righteously angry people like this man get kicked in the gut by it.

      The union bosses were behind Biden. Think they learned anything?

  12. Blaster says:

    Uhm,,,,, ok,,,, the internet is an awesome resource….. look up some shit regarding MRS. Speaker and her historical comments. Then,,, before getting babe I go us,,,,, heck out some historical images of our glorious leader in charge….

    Yeah,,, I’ll wait!!!!!!

  13. 5JC says:

    I am glad she is extending the olive branch of peace in the House. I was concerned there might be a witch hunt. Now they will all work together merrily to keep us safe.

    I have this dream that the EBS comes on and says..

    “This is only a Test of the Failed Commie/Socialist System, this is only a Test. Your rightful President will return shortly.
    This is only a Test.”

    Truth, Justice and the American Way or untruth, just us and our way?

    I can dream on and keep rocking in a Free World!

    Term Limits

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      Nearly ALL of the “DC Lifers” of both parties are living, breathing proof that we need Term Limits. My proposal for a Constitutional Amendment would be a twelve year limit on holding any Congressional Office. House Members would be limited to two six year terms, Senators to two six year terms, and if one goes from one Chamber to the other, their total time in both Chambers combined cannot exceed twelve years!

      • KoB says:

        API, the Confederate Constitution had term limits built into it. Shows that even 160 years ago, many people were already fed up with career pols. I have preached for decades on the need for term limits and how the elected officials have a very bad case of Potomac Power Fever. Shoulda been a big wake up call when the bastards “Lionized” a murderous rapist.

        A Constitutional Convention of the States sounds like a good idea on paper, but it could have unintended consequences and open up a big can of worms. Other states could use that as an opportunity to make changes that a lot of us would not like…and we may still NOT get the term limits we DO want.

        I place most of the blame on our sorry ass Kongressinal Klown Kritters on the stoopid useful idiots that keep re-electing them. Sent a note to my Rep the other night asking why he (a Repub) has not been more vocal or forthcoming on trying to fix things or DO SOMETHING about the domestic enemies of our Country. Got back the standard blah blah blah Thank for your comment blah blah bla, looking into it BS.

    I had to tell one of my great friends from Milwaukee that we cannot say anything out loud in a social format becasse the walls have ears. The NSA is reading your texts and fukbuk and the rest of the klownes on social media are actively working and looking for reasons to not just cancel anyone that disagrees with them, but to put them in prison for the rest of their lives.
    They are all a bunch of wannabe Hitlers, it’s going to be quite a ride for the next couple of years.
    One thing we need to remember is that they may act like they were given carte blanch to change everything that they want to and that the sheeple will go along with whatever they say.
    Uh huh…..
    Just be careful my friends, don’t attract attention with well meaning comments.

  18. 11B-Mailclerk says:

    This is “stupid criminal”: putting in a federal unemployment role someone who oversaw $600 million in Washington State unemployment fraud.

    They apparently recovered $360 million or so, so not quite a quarter billion short, right?

    Just how frakking stupid …

      Things got so fucked up that they had to call in about 100 NG to help process claims… and it’s still AFU.
