Why Nancy Pelosi is “A National Disgrace”


Nancy Pelosi tears up Trump’s State of the Union Address.

“I thought it was a terrible thing,” said Trump. “It’s illegal what she did. She broke the law.”

On one thing I agree with Donald Trump:

Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi is a “National Disgrace”.

But not for the reasons mentioned by Trump.  

In all her public statements, Nancy Pelosi never mentions the war crimes committed by the Trump administration against the people of Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Palestine. 

Why? Because both Democrats and Republicans are committed to waging US led “humanitarian wars”.

And according to America’s media it was “collateral damage”: those US sponsored war crimes never happened.

“The War on Terrorism” and the “Responsibility to Protect”(R2P) are part of a bipartisan consensus approved by the US Congress, implemented by Bush,  Obama and Trump.

In a bitter irony, the media debate has centered on Nancy Pelosi committing an illegal act by tearing up a copy of Trump’s State of the Union Address rather than on the illegality of Trump’s  “Deal of the Century”:

“The Deal of the Century” which constitutes a violation of international law is a non-issue for the Speaker of the House.

Nor does Nancy Pelosi mention Trump’s unbending support of the Netanyahu regime including the crimes committed against the People of Palestine. According to the Jerusalem Post  “Nancy Pelosi reaffirmed her commitment to the State of Israel”.

Nuclear War 

Both the Dems and the Republicans are supportive of the Pentagon’s 1.2 trillion dollar nuclear weapons program initiated under Obama.

It’s all for a good cause.

It’s expensive for US tax payers, but it’s worth it, and it is not illegal.

According to authoritative US and Canadian media, America’s nuclear arsenal “makes the world safer”.

“War make us safer and richer” according to the Washington Post.

And that’s not “fake news” because the new generation of “more usable” tactical nuclear weapons or mini-nukes are  “harmless to civilians” (according to scientific opinion on contract to the Pentagon).

The mini-nukes have an explosive capacity from one third to 12 times a Hiroshima bomb.

I agree with Trump that “what she did on Tuesday night” was not only idiotic (“a childish act”), it also reinforces the probability that Trump will win the 2020 elections, to the detriment of the Democratic Party.

At this juncture Nancy Pelosi constitutes a setback for the Democrats.

And this is the campaign the Trump people have launched, sending millions of emails to American voters. (As well some Canadians. I happen to be on his email list).
