The rules are for thee, but not for me, appears to by a mantra that House Speaker and California Rep. Nancy Pelosi lives by.

Many on social media called out the House Speaker for her hypocrisy after she created a rule demanding that everyone, even those who are vaccinated, wear face masks in the House but then was caught taking her own mask off for a photo opp.

She took her face mask off momentarily to take a picture with newly sworn in Republican Texas Rep. Jake Ellzey.

Pelosi only took off the mask for a few second and she was outside the bounds of the Chambers, but it still had many on Twitter calling her a hypocrite.

“Nancy Pelosi takes off mask, breaking her own mandate, for a photo,” one Twitter user said.

“PELOSI IS THE ONLY ONE WITH HER FACE MASK OFF. This is after she threatened to have Republicans arrested for not wearing masks,” Conservative Brief writer Ian Miles Cheong said.

This comes hours after the Capitol Police published a memo advising its officers to advise staff and visitors to the Capitol who are not wearing a mask to leave.

And they were ordered to arrest staff and visitors on the House side of the complex who are not wearing a mask, though the order did not apply to Congress members.

U.S. Capitol Police have been ordered to start arresting staff and visitors to the House who are not wearing a mask, Fox News reported.

The Capitol Police were advised not to arrest members of Congress but to report them to the House Sergeant-At-Arms.

Republican Florida Rep. Kat Cammack received a copy of the memo from an unnamed police officer, she said to Fox News.

“In today’s edition of Pelosi’s abuse of power, Capitol Police have been directed to arrest staff and visitors to comply with her mask mandate for vaccinated individuals. For Members, they advise not arresting but ‘reporting Members to SAA for their failure to comply,’” she said on Twitter.

“But just in the last 24 hours, we’ve seen Speaker Pelosi without a mask, directly disobeying the very order she wants everyone else to follow. Rules for thee, but not for me at its finest,” she said.

“This is such an overstep of Speaker Pelosi’s authority to basically make our Capitol Police arrest staff members and report on members [of Congress],” she said to Fox News. “It’s absolutely unconscionable that this is where we’re at.”

“I cannot comply with this tyrannical order,” she said. “This is the people’s house, not Nancy Pelosi’s house.”

Cammack, like many other GOP reps, are up in arms about the return this week of coronavirus mask mandates at the House, regardless of vaccination status. The mask rules follow updated Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance in the wake of the rise of the contagious COVID delta variant and lower-than-expected vaccination rates.

GOP members huddled with Capitol Attending Physician Brian P. Monahan Wednesday at the Capitol to express their frustrations with the new mask guidance and say it’s not based on science. GOP members have openly revolted against the mask mandates – especially since it’s not in place on the Senate side – and said it’s a politically motivated mandate from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.

A spokesperson for Speaker Pelosi said that she was not involved in the order from the Capitol Police and had just discovered it.

“The speaker of the House does not control the U.S. Capitol Police,” her spokesperson Drew Hammill said.  “We were unaware of the memo until it was reported in the press.”

But Republicans were blaming Pelosi for it.

“Power-trip Pelosi is making vaccinated folks at the Capitol wear masks – refusal to comply w/ this political theatre could result in arrest. Speaker Pelosi is more focused on D.C. swamp theatre than addressing skyrocketing violence, the crisis at our border, & sky-high inflation,” Rep. Mike Rogers said.

“The House of Representatives is supposed to be a democratic institution. But to enforce her absurd mask mandate, she’s gone full authoritarian, demanding the Capitol Police arrest staff and report Members who fail to comply,” Rep. Jason Smith said.

“This is absurd. Staffers and visitors will be arrested for not wearing a mask in the Capitol. The United States House of Representatives is officially under Nancy Pelosi’s authoritarian rule,” Rep. Guy Reschenthaler said on Twitter.

THIS IS ABSURD. STAFFERS AND VISITORS WILL BE ARRESTED FOR NOT WEARING A MASK IN THE CAPITOL.

Sen. Rubio demands President Biden fire Gen. Milley immediately

Published

on

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio is urging President Biden to fire Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Mark Milley immediately. 

In a letter to the president, Rubio, vice-chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, writes with “grave concern” regarding recent reporting that Milley allegedly “worked to actively undermine the sitting Commander in Chief of the United States Armed Forces and contemplated a treasonous leak of classified information to the Chinese Communist Party in advance of a potential armed conflict.”

“Even more egregiously, reports indicate that General Milley interfered with the procedures by which the civilian commander-in-chief can order a nuclear strike,” writes Rubio.

“A senior military officer interfering with that civilian-controlled process is simply unacceptable at best, and at worst, would cause ambiguity which could lead to war,” he went on to say.

The actions are reportedly described in a forthcoming book, “Peril,” by Washington Post journalists Bob Woodward and Robert Costa. 

Rubio ended the letter by warning the president that the United States’ reputation was at stake if he didn’t immediately dismiss Gen. Milley, not to mention the potential national security risks such a deviation from long-standing procedures could inflict on the nation.

Trump Screws Liz Cheney As Third Primary Challenger Drops Out Of Race After Heeding Trump’s Advice

Published

on

Liz Cheney’s only chance at keeping her seat in Congress, in the face of a tough primary led by former President Donald Trump, was to split the vote.

The other candidates smelled blood nin the water and jumped into the race to primary Liz. But too many saw the doomed Liz Cheney as an easy win, and in a deep red state, knew the winner could keep that seat for years if they wanted.

So it looked good for Cheney for a while but Trump stepped in to clear the field and dropped his crucial endorsement on an old friend of Cheney’s, Harriet Hageman.

And then Trump went after the other candidates in the primary race telling them to drop out as they have no chance without his endorsement arguing that that was the best way to send Cheney packing.

To Liz’s abject horror the other candidates are listening to Trump and putting personal ambition to the side to make sure she gets fired. 

First, two big names in the Wyoming GOP dropped out of the race.

Cheyenne attorney Darin Smith and Sheridan County Republican Party Chairman Bryan Miller suspended their campaigns after Trump’s endorsement went to Hageman.

And today a third primary challenger announced they were suspending their campaign all but sealing Cheney’s doomed fate.

Wyoming state Rep. Chuck Gray, of Casper, said he is out of the race to help defeat Cheney. He said:

“Our first and most important goal is to unite to defeat Liz Cheney.

“With that in mind, I will be suspending my campaign today.

“Liz Cheney has betrayed our values. 

“And to counter Liz’s betrayal, our campaign has been focused on advancing Wyoming values,” he said.

Hageman said:

“Chuck Gray is an honorable man who has been standing for Wyoming’s Conservative values for years. 

“We can’t take back our Congressional seat unless we are united, and I am humbled by his decision to keep fighting to protect Wyoming through his work in the Legislature.

Gray was the big name in the race besides Cheney, but Darin Smith and Bryan Miller had strong support. With all three out of the race, only lesser-known candidates with no real chance remain. Sen. Anthony Bouchard (R) is the last big name in the race but he has more skeletons than one could count in his closet so he is not a real threat.

In short, Cheney will probably pull a Joe Lieberman and run as an independent but Wyoming is not like Connecticut and that will fail is she tries it.

From The Hill:

Gray had been one of the more prominent challengers, jumping into the contest early this year and crisscrossing the state.

However, Trump’s endorsement of Hageman last week marked a turning point in the GOP primary and a culmination of Republican anger with Cheney, who has infuriated the base with her vote to impeach Trump, her frequent needling of him over his unsubstantiated claims of election fraud and her role on the select committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection.

“Harriet Hageman adores the Great State of Wyoming, is strong on Crime and Borders, powerfully supports the Second Amendment, loves our Military and our Vets, and will fight for Election Integrity and Energy Independence (which Biden has already given up). Unlike RINO Liz Cheney, Harriet is all in for America First. Harriet has my Complete and Total Endorsement in replacing the Democrats number one provider of sound bites, Liz Cheney,” Trump said last week, using an acronym for “Republican in name only.”

Nancy Pelosi Suffers Huge Blow As Three Moderate Dems Revolt Against Her Drug Pricing Plan

Published

on

Nancy Pelosi suffered a huge and quite embarrassing defeat today when three moderate Dem revolted and sunk Pelosi’s prized prescription drug plan.

The Dems legislation to lower drug prices, the one they have been campaigning on and the one Nancy holds dear to her heart, was just defeated in a House committee after three moderate Democrats voted against the Dem party.

Reps. Kurt Schrader (D-Ore.), Scott Peters (D-Calif.), and Kathleen Rice (D-N.Y.) voted against the Dems plan to allow the secretary of Health and Human Services to negotiate lower drug prices.

But it is more than just a blow to Pelosi’s ego – their drug scheme was a key way the Dems planned to pay for the $3.5 trillion spending boondoggle they are trying to ram through Congress.

With Joe Manchin saying he wants the bill paid for before he will greenlight it, if the Dems can’t resurrect this portion of the bill the whole thing may fall apart. Manchin does not like the price tag and he does not want to add to the deficit.

Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Frank Pallone Jr. (D-N.J.) begged the 3 moderates to vote yes saying: “Vote to move forward today. Vote to continue the conversation.”

Pallone remained upbeat despite the loss saying the final bill will have some drug price reform in it.

“I know it is going to have drug pricing reform,” Pallone said but will it be enough to offset the concerns of Joe Manchin? Not a chance.

Henry Connelly, a spokesman for Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), said:

“Polling consistently shows immense bipartisan support for Democrats’ drug price negotiation legislation, including overwhelming majorities of Republicans and independents who are fed up with Big Pharma charging Americans so much more than they charge for the same medicines overseas,” he said in a statement after the vote.

“Delivering lower drug costs is a top priority of the American people and will remain a cornerstone of the Build Back Better Act as work continues between the House, Senate and White House on the final bill.”

“Reps. Peters, Rice, and Schrader are prioritizing drug company profits over lower drug prices for the American people, particularly for patients with chronic conditions such as diabetes and multiple sclerosis,” said Patrick Gaspard, president of the left-leaning Center for American Progress.

 “To the contrary of what they contend, their opposition to the drugs proposal threatens the entirety of President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better agenda, which Democrats have campaigned on for years and that they previously voted for.”
