(FreedomWire.org) – The U.S. Capitol is set to become more accessible to the public in January after Republicans take control of the House of Representatives, said House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy.

Over the 117th Congress, much of the Capitol, particularly the House of Representatives, remained inaccessible to members of the public. The galleries of both chambers, as well as access to offices and public tour spots like the rotunda, were closed due to COVID-19, while security measures — such as non-scalable fencing, which was later removed — were put in place after Jan. 6, 2021 to further limited access, according to Politico.

Opening the Capitol to the public would be “one of the first orders of business,” McCarthy wrote on Twitter. Members of the public may gain access to the galleries through normal procedures as well as obtain tickets from members, a measure that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi suspended following the storming of the Capitol building on Jan. 6, 2021.

McCarthy additionally stated that every morning of the House’s proceedings would begin with a prayer as well as the Pledge of Allegiance to the U.S. flag, a departure from their intermittent practice under Democrats, according to a post on Facebook. “No exceptions,” he wrote, in relation to the announced measure.

McCarthy is also likely to rescind a controversial decision to place metal detectors outside the House chamber doors, with all members required to pass through them and those who refuse being fined beginning Jan. 12, 2021, per CNN. The Senate does not have such a requirement.

Pelosi introduced the measure after claiming that “the enemy is within the House of Representatives,” referring to several GOP lawmakers’ support for the Second Amendment and opposition to the results of the 2020 election, a statement in a 2021 press conference that provoked significant criticism from Republicans. McCarthy has expressed opposition to the measure as well as the fines imposed, which are $5,000 per offense and are deducted from members’ pay.

Republican Reps. Louie Gohmert of Texas and Andrew Clyde of Georgia have sued the House for their fines of $5,000 and $15,000, respectively, arguing that the measure violates the U.S. Constitution’s 27th Amendment, which prohibits “laws varying the compensation of Senators and Representatives” from taking effect until an election occurs.

Pelosi herself was criticized for once failing to pass through a metal detector as she enters and exits the House, despite ordering that members be fined $5,000 for every failure to do so, per the New York Post. 

(FreedomWire.org) – With news breaking that the Republicans had secured a majority in the House of Representatives just moments before going live, Trump seized the moment to note that Nasty Nancy would be ousted from the third spot in the presidential line of succession.

As Trump said, “Nancy Pelosi has been fired, isn’t that nice?”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Thursday she will not seek re-election as leader of the House Democratic Conference after nearly 20 years at the helm, after Democrats lost the majority in the chamber during the midterm elections. 

“There is no greater special honor for me than to stand on this floor and to speak for the people of San Francisco. This I will continue to do as a member of the House speaking for the people of San Francisco, serving the great state of California and defending our Constitution,” she continued.

“With great confidence in our caucus, I will not seek re-election to Democratic leadership in the next Congress,” said Pelosi. “For me, the hour has come for a new generation to lead the Democratic caucus that I so deeply respect, and I’m grateful that so many are ready and willing to shoulder this awesome responsibility.”

Pelosi has represented most of San Francisco in Congress since the 1980s, having won the seat in a special election following the death of incumbent Democrat Sala Burton. Pelosi subsequently gained a reputation as a leader in the Democratic Party, and has served two stints as speaker. She was the first woman to be in the role.

After Pelosi’s announcement, Republicans took to twitter, to celebrate.

Democrats interested in party leadership are expected to emerge soon.

POLITICO reported earlier this year that Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was interested in the leadership job. However, Schiff decided against running on Wednesday, with sources telling POLITICO that he was instead interested in serving as the next senator from California — a seat currently occupied by Dianne Feinstein.

But one person with interest in the position is Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), who is currently number five in the Democratic leadership team. Jeffries, 52, has been called an “up-and-coming young Democrat” by House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-SC).

While Jeffries is expected to run with the support of the Congressional Black Caucus, it’s unclear if Pelosi herself will weigh in on who should be the next Democratic leader.

(FreedomWire.org) – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports” that she dismissed a poll saying Americans’ top concerns going into the November midterm that Americans are most concerned about inflation and crime.

Mitchell said, “Let’s talk about rising inflation concerns along with crime, giving momentum, new momentum to Republicans after the Democrats were closing the gap, the historic gap. After the Supreme Court ruling, there was huge outrage. That has seemed to subside, at least among overriding concerns. Despite all the legislative accomplishments, and I want to cite them, I want to say it’s been an extraordinary session. You and the president have done so much in terms of domestic concerns, the economy. So why do you think the president hasn’t gotten it through to the voters?”

Pelosi said, “Well, first of all, let me say that I think that much of what you’ve said I don’t agree with, that is to say, the New York Times poll, I think is an outlier poll, you cite one poll, but all the other polls —”

Mitchell said, “It’s also the RealClearPolitics average is showing similar issues.”

Pelosi said, “No, but that was one that brought down the average, and it was an outlier. It wasn’t even that big a sample. So I dismiss that. I have been since Congress adjourned, I’ve been in an average of five states a week. And I can tell you that women’s concerns about their freedom are very, very much still very significant in terms of how they will vote.”

Pelosi went on to claim that inflation was a global issue but then admitted that part of the problem originated with the policies of President Joe Biden.

Then Pelosi went on to suggest that Democrats should say whatever they need to say in order to win in the Midterms. “I say just win baby, just win, if that is what you need to say to win, fine.”

Probably the most out of touch thing she claimed was that President Biden has done a “spectacular job.”

If you thought it was over when President Trump was found innocent of allegedly instigating an insurrection when a few protesters got a little rowdy at a January 6 protest expressing Americans’ overwhelming belief (around 75 percent of Republicans agree that something was fishy with the last election) that Joe Biden and the Democrats stole the 2020 election from President Trump. Numerous Democrats were arrested in the Capitol, and many feel that they appear to be outside agitators. Nancy Pelosi has now announced a 9/11-style commission to investigate the incident in the Capitol — but we can rest assured that she likely won’t focus on why so many who had no reason to be there were storming the Capitol. Instead, she and her Democrat compatriots intend to endlessly probe the issues to find anything at all they can use against Trump and Republicans for political purposes.

Pelosi says her phony commission with “investigate and report on the facts and causes relating to the January 6, 2021, domestic terrorist attack upon the United States Capitol Complex … and relating to the interference with the peaceful transfer of power.” The AP reports:

In her letter Monday, Pelosi said, “It is clear from his findings and from the impeachment trial that we must get to the truth of how this happened.”

She added, “As we prepare for the Commission, it is also clear from General Honoré’s interim reporting that we must put forth a supplemental appropriation to provide for the safety of Members and the security of the Capitol.”

Pelosi says she plans to allocate more money for security despite the incident occurring more than a month ago with no sign of another now that Biden is officially in office.

President Trump was recently acquitted of his alleged role in what Democrats are calling an “insurrection.” We’re sure the commission will uncover facts conservatives have been demanding, too — like the identity of the D.C. cop who murdered unarmed and peaceful protester Ashli Babbitt or what ties the numerous Democrats and nonvoters arrested had to leftist organizations like BLM and Antifa.

But we can expect that information to be covered up. This isn’t about the truth. It’s about ammo for the next election. It’s about painting conservatives as terrorists. It’s about hurting Donald Trump. It’s about making all of us pay for loving our country. Ultimately, this is a massive waste of taxpayer dollars simply because Democrats are full of spite and hate.

Following Trump’s acquittal in the Senate, Nancy Pelosi came completely unhinged, attacking Republicans who voted with the Constitution against impeaching a private citizen — a man who is no longer in office and therefore cannot be removed from it.

After President Trump was found innocent of inciting a rebellion or whatever Democrats claim he did this week, Pelosi launched into an insane screed, accusing Republicans of caring more about their party than the Constitution — the same one that says a private citizen cannot be impeached after he leaves office.

“What we saw in that Senate today was a cowardly group of Republicans who apparently have no options, because they were afraid to defend their job, respect the institution in which they serve,” Pelosi said. She accused Mitch McConnell, a political opportunist who has recently begun attacking Trump but ultimately voted against impeachment, of being the cause behind why Trump’s trial did not happen before Joe Biden’s inauguration.

Though some Republicans chose to censure Trump, Pelosi has a problem with that too. “Censure is the slap in the face of the constitution,” Pelosi says. “It lets everybody off the hook.

“All these cowardly senators who couldn’t face up to what the president did and what was at stake for our country are now going to have a chance to give a little slap on the wrist?” she adds. “We censure people for using stationary for the wrong purpose. We don’t censure people for inciting insurrection that kills people in the Capitol.”

There was, of course, no insurrection. A protest got out of hand — thanks in part to more than 20 Democrats and nonvoters who were for some reason in the midst of an allegedly pro-Trump rebellion. The President tried to calm the crowd, but social media companies responded by removing his calls for peace from the internet.

Democrats are learning that many of their own can’t be trusted and will sell out at a moment’s notice. “The Squad,” once heralded as progressives’ best hope at pulling themselves out from under the corrupt Democrat Party, is the latest group of leftists willing to completely sell out their values — and they did it to keep Nancy Pelosi in power.

“The Squad” — most notably, Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — broke with progressives overall and cast their votes for Nancy Pelosi for Speaker of the House. And thanks to their decision to ignore progressives’ call for them to abstain from voting, Pelosi narrowly edged out Republican Kevin McCarthy, who received 209 votes from his fellow Republicans. Pelosi received 216 votes from Democrats, two above the 214-vote threshold needed to secure her position as House Majority Leader.

Naturally, progressives are livid. Jimmy Dore, a popular voice among progressives, lambasted the Squad for keeping Pelosi as Speaker.

The Squad’s defection from the progressive wing of the party has caused a rift, with many on the far-Left — including progressive voice David Pakman and The Young Turks’ Cenk Uygur — inexplicably supporting Pelosi and the Squad. But many more progressives are with Dore on the issue. “Fraud Squad” trended at number 1 for a sizeable portion of Sunday.

“In a time when the Republican Party is attempting an electoral coup and trying to overturn the results of our election, this is not just about being united as a party,” AOC said, defending her decision to betray her values and kiss Pelosi’s ring. “It’s about being united as people who have basic respect for the rule of law.” This, of course, was a massive change from her opinion last month that Pelosi “need[s] to go.”

The Democrat Party is falling apart at the seams. If nothing else, that alone should make the next four years very interesting.

Liberals have been questioning President Trump’s fitness for office since the moment he was elected. Often, we hear that they think he’s dangerous and unstable or has dementia or is a drug addict. Since the impeachment hoax failed, the Left has a new play in their book: the 25th Amendment.

The 25th Amendment allows the President to be removed from office for a number of reasons. First, it allows the Vice President to take over if the President dies. If the Vice President dies or steps down, the President can nominate a new one. the President can also notify Congress that he is unable to perform his duties. The Vice President then can take over. But it’s Section 4 of the 25th Amendment that liberals — specifically Nancy Pelosi — wishes to focus on.

On Friday, Nancy Pelosi announced legislation that would allow Democrats to step in and remove President Trump from his duties. Using the President’s recent COVID-19 diagnosis as an excuse, Pelosi says the commission will explore Trump’s fitness for office. “The public needs to know the health condition of the president,” Pelosi says.

President Trump hit back at this latest partisan attack. Crazy Nancy is the one who should be under observation,” he says, “They don’t call her Crazy for nothing!”

Despite Democrats’ ghoulish wishes for the President to die, he says he “feels great” since his miraculous recovery from the virus. He spent his time in Walter Reed hospital working hard for the American people and quickly returned to work.

Democrats are seizing on the opportunity to use the President’s diagnosis for political gain. They hope to swing the election in Joe Biden’s favor by painting the President as a man who is unable to do his duties. Fortunately, for this plan to work, Vice President Pence and a majority of the Cabinet would need to be on board — and that absolutely is not happening. This is an attempt at a coup, but fortunately our laws prevent it. Watch Pelosi’s announcement below:
