Default Rep. Chip Roy: The House has four speakers, and none are named Nancy Pelosi

Think Nancy Pelosi is anything more than nominal Speaker? Think again.

Quote:
swearing-in ceremony. With my hand on the Holy Bible surrounded by my wife and children, I thought I was standing next to the progressive hero, the Democrats’ top tactician, and the speaker of the House. I was dead wrong.

Now I know there isn’t just one speaker, there are four. The self-proclaimed “squad,” Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and Ayanna Pressley run the show in the People’s House. They’ve flanked Pelosi from the Left and stolen her mantle as the leader of the so-called progressives.

Pelosi’s fall from grace has been a slow trickle. Before the 116th Congress even gaveled in for the first legislative session, it was blatantly obvious Pelosi didn’t have control of her conference, nor the group that would soon become the de-facto leaders of Democratic Party in the House.

House Democrats launched a campaign to undermine her bid for speaker. It was almost successful, too. Only after she privately lobbied Ocasio-Cortez and acquiesced to demands she support a term limits deal on the speakership was Pelosi able to narrowly evade massive embarrassment. At least, she thought.

Traditionally, the speaker of the House sets the legislative agenda, gives the party marching orders, and ensures that rank-and-file members fall into place. On all fronts, Pelosi is failing miserably.
The reaction to Trump criticizing the squad confirms their ascension to House leadership.

Quote:
Ask any American living outside the Beltway to name a single piece of legislation from this Congress and I’d be willing to bet the only one they’d be able to name is Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal.” Would a single person mention H.R. 9, the Climate Action Now Act that Pelosi held a press conference about in March? Would they be able to name H.R. 5, the so-called “Equality Act,” which the speaker unveiled at another press conference with House and Senate Democratic leadership? The answer to both is a resounding “no.”
Another member of the squad, Congresswoman Talib has assumed primacy directing the House as a political weapon of the Resistance.

Quote:
Just hours after Pelosi swore us in, Tlaib told a room of MoveOn supporters (note the irony) that she would lead the Democratic Party on a crusade to “impeach the motherf---er,” referring to President Trump. Shortly following Tlaib’s comment, a memo went out to all the Democratic committee chairs to leverage the power of the legislative branch and undermine the ability of the president to fulfill his campaign promises.
Pelosi is impotent to condemn Talib and Omar for their false condemnation of Israel as a violator of human rights, something that would have been unthinkable to a Democrat party reliant on US Jews for support.

Quote:
For her part, Omar must have Pelosi and Majority Leader Steny Hoyer under a spell. Both Pelosi and Hoyer have been vocal supporters of Israel for decades. But since Omar came to town they can’t even condemn her naked anti-Semitism and even put her on the House Foreign Affairs Committee to spew Hamas talking points. To their credit, Pelosi and Hoyer did try to condemn Omar’s now infamous anti-Semitic tweet, “It’s all about the Benjamins baby.” But something went awry. The resolution condemning anti-Semitism somehow transformed to a watered-down resolution condemning “hate.”

Omar got the message: She can say any hateful thing she wants without reproach! It didn’t take her long to suggest American servicemembers were “terrorists,” blame the U.S. for devastation in Venezuela, and share Hamas propaganda on Twitter. Neither Pelosi, nor anyone from her party’s leadership, has lifted a finger to stop it. Why? They are terrified.
Welcome to the new Democrat party controlled by radical Progressive first term members of Congress.

he's only trying to stoke your fear of "other" so you'll get off your lazy butt and vote.

Just like the squad members any discussion is deemed racist.

The Congressman supports his assertion with evidence unlike your smear.
