Speaker Pelosi apparently forgot she also has a police force

American Thinker: House speaker Nancy Pelosi sent a letter on January 16, 2019 to President Trump asking him to reschedule his upcoming State of the Union because of security concerns:

Sadly, given the security concerns and unless government re-opens this week, I suggest that we work together to determine another suitable date after government has re-opened for this address or for you to consider delivering your State of the Union address in writing to the Congress on January 29th.

Speaker Pelosi’s political gambit to link the security of the State of the Union to the government shutdown was immediately spiked by a “can do” tweet sent out by DHS secretary Nielson:

The Department of Homeland Security and the US Secret Service are fully prepared to support and secure the State of the Union.  We thank the Service for their mission focus and dedication and for all they do each day to secure our homeland.

Additionally, yesterday, there was pure public buffoonery between Speaker Pelosi (D-Calif.), third in line of succession to the presidency, and her Democrat majority leader, Steny Hoyer (D-Md.).  After Speaker Pelosi sent the President her letter, Representative Hoyer publicly stated that the State of the Union “is off.”

But wait!  Congressman Hoyer then admitted that he did not read the letter.  He used the saying “Ready…fire…aim” in making his comment.

A representative for Hoyer told INSIDER he had “not read Speaker Pelosi’s letter and mischaracterized it” when he told CNN that the State of the Union address “is off.”

If the two most powerful leaders in the House of Representative cannot even coordinate a one-page letter, it is no wonder that in discussing “security concerns,” both Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Hoyer overlooked that they also have a huge leadership role in Capitol Hill security.  MORE

  1. …can’t really blame Ms
    Senility 2019 for forgetting there’s a Capitol Police force. After seeing the antics of the hate Kavenaugh crowd and how they roamed unopposed, even threatening Senators, it really wasn’t clear if they existed at all to anyone ELSE, either…

  2. Often confused with memory lapses mid sentence, slipping dentures and vacant stares our girl Nancy is disintegrating before our eyes. She’ll soon join RBG and slip into a vegetative state from which there’s no return.
    Who’ll come forward next to face the pummeling from the president? They have had their way for decades thanks to the media control but despite all the usual tools brought to bear Trump seems immune and this is unfamiliar territory for them. They can dish it out but they can’t take it.

  3. …but the sad fact of the matter is that there IS a HUGE security threat that looms over not just our President, but our Nation.

    And Congress can’t fix it.

    Because it’s the Democrats.

    Not only do they have insane POLICIES, many of them are rabid enough to actually TRY to PHYSICALLY harm our President. The younger ones, particularly the Jihadists like the Palestinian and Somali chicks could EASILY go all suicide attack on us, and that Kotex dame is just rat-in-a-coffee-can crazy GENERALLY, so no TELLING what SHE might do.

    …and the Capitol Police CAN’T stop them.

    …so yes, there IS a huge security threat to our President. But only a Civil War can remove it…

  4. When thinking of Pelosi, keep in mind that the Democrats just elected her to be their leader, to keep them in lockstep with mainstream Democrat values and thinking.

    That’s what they wanted for a leader because that’s what they are as people.

  5. Oh dear. The impact is so bad I just read this.

    “The lack of funding is impacting agents’ ability to travel to forward their cases,” said Thomas O’Connor, president of the FBI Agents Association.

    So lying, spying and fabricating false claims against the President and the people of the U.S. as well and false claims to the FISA court may come to an end? Let the shutdown continue.
    And the comments at American Thinker were excellent.

  6. The Capitol Police is fully up to the task.

    They were “patronage” when I started but became professional under some very able chiefs.

    izlamo delenda est …

  7. Nothing is more unreliable than the populace, nothing more obscure than human intentions, nothing more deceptive than the whole electoral system. ~~ Marcus Tullius Cicero

    The uninformed elect socialist democrat fools who lie to get elected and then get upset when they do as we anticipated all along.

  8. Old Fleabagger also forgot whose plane she was going to fly.

    That’s life, with Trump as CinC,
    You’re flying high in Hawaii,
    Shot down in D. C.

  9. Nancy “Cut your head off” Speaker is very rapidly downsliding on her way to meet her Maker, imo.

    I anticipate her blowing an aneurism or having a stroke because she is WAY over her head, jousting with this President, and I can imagine in my head all the Media howling about what a precious, vulnerable VICTIM she was.
    (because they consider her a female human–I do not)

  10. Nanny P feigns “concern” with SOTU security, but can’t see any problem with our unsecured border that needs attention- demosocialist-hypocrisy at it’s finest.

  11. Everything that’s wrong with Congress and this country embodied in the second person in-line for the Presidency. Great peril.

  12. You could tell Trump really got to Pelosi by denying use of military plane — she was all smiles later, like nothing bothered her, “who-me-worry??”.

    Wish I had seen those faces getting off that bus.

  13. Forgot?? That scramble-brained idiot probably doesn’t remember her own name – needs a Congressional aide reminding her of it on a continual basis!!
