Where Is Congress?

You’ll have to forgive me for being a little bit cynical today. That’s because I can’t believe what is going on in Washington, DC. Over the weekend, Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) unleashed a very childish and untoward barrage at President Donald Trump. Now, I’m totally aware these two are not besties. But still, in a time when both sides of the aisle are calling for government to work together, I find it terribly odd that Pelosi would be breaching her own advice, and slamming not only Trump, but the official Coronavirus task force. It makes me wonder if she’s all there mentally!

Then I realized she wasn’t.

If you go back to World War I, or World War II, or the Spanish Flu Pandemic of 1918, you’ll notice that Congress worked overtime. They didn’t take a break. They stayed in session, even though tradition said that they shouldn’t. So, can someone tell me why it is that in this day and age, with the COVID-19 virus still on the rise in the country, that Pelosi decided to close down the House? I guess all of the talk of working together was really just more Pelosi-blather, right?

And while we’re at it, let’s look at the media. Now, I’ve not been shy of lambasting the media for their terrible coverage of the news coming out of Washington during this pandemic. In fact, I’ve wondered aloud why it is the news media insists on covering the daily briefing when they are pretty much boring, go on way too long, and don’t contain much if any new information from the day before. Apparently, I’ve got some agreement with an idiot at CNN! Don Lemon, who really amazes me that he’s been able to actually hold down a full=time job, has asked the question on the air why CNN covers the Coronavirus update. Now, his reasoning is a little different from mine. He says it’s because Donald Trump lies all the time. That’s pretty much nonsense. And it’s one of Lemon’s cohorts, Jim Alcosta, that shows up at these briefings every day with “gotcha” questions for Donald Trump. So, let me ask the question…why doesn’t CNN tell Alcosta to cool it?

Well, the reason for that is simple. CNN is doing anything they can to show their dislike of Donald Trump. They haven’t been a fan of his and have covered him with about 98% negative news since he won the election back in 2016. For them, Jim Alcosta is a foot soldier on the front lines.

But Alcosta and Lemon are just two examples of why the media ranks at the very bottom of the approval list of various institutions and people that are involved in the Coronavirus. I fact, well over half of the country (and even about 40% of Democrats!) say that the news media’s coverage of COVID-19 is terrible. Lemon and Alcosta are just two of the many reasons why.

I’m not saying there is a lot Congress should be doing (or could be doing), but it’s the optic of them leaving town during a crisis that is totally wrong. And Pelosi’s ranting and raving about how Donald Trump and his team are doing such a bad job is a joke. She has tied up more funds for longer than anyone in this country. She is the one that should be ashamed of the way she’s acted in a time of national crisis. In fact, Nancy Pelosi is a national buffoon. She fits in perfectly well with the CNN’s and MSNBC’s of the world who forgot what news coverage was all about!

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

  1. She is a buffon! Good description. It’s unbelievable that she’s closed Congress when all others in the country are struggling so to help – but then, that’s Nancy

  2. I have no more words that are descriptive enough for Nancy Pelosi. Even a buffon has a brain, she does not. She can even set up a productive committee with any purpose that is beneficial to a single degree for the American people. It’s about partisan power, and even that it’s more power for herself. She has been acting as though she is the Master Ruler of All America. I am more concerned we allow her to roam at will….and she is never STOPPED. The American people, our country is not in her heart because she has no heart, no soul, no conscious. We have the power to stop this/her insanity……..so why don’t we. Which brings me to another ranting point. I thought of this, this morning upon waking: In a darkened time, as we are in; we are using socialistic ideas, policy, action to deal with it. On Monday, our governor has order a lock-down/stay at home order for the entire state. Now, mind you, there are counties in Missouri that have ZERO cases of COVID-19. ZERO, and many of them. They could stay productive, (keep people from traveling from outside the counties into these counties). Next, we’ll all be wearing the same clothing (uniform). They’ll start with anyone who has the virus or has had it should wear all black or gray or whatever. We’ll look like China. My point is we are experiencing socialism, and I for the first time in my life feel it’s effect. I can see where the human soul can be wore down, broken to appoint of just giving in/up. You’ll call me a nut, but I truly believe this was/is a purposeful trial run. For me Event 201 between Bill Gates, John Hopkins and Soros was proof, not the beginning that was even earlier. I am more concerned for my kids, grandkids and yours than at anytime in my life. I will not be broken……you may hear more from going forward than ever before and possibly stronger, not just my thoughts and in my words. We’ll see how far censorship is from us as well. As Cuomo and Clyburn, Schiff and Pelosi are saying, this is an opportunity to change our way of doing things to reach our vision. That should wake the hell up out of all of us. Their vision is nothing like the vision our forefather’s had. I pray it is not like the vision most American’s still have and are willing to re-fight for.

    1. I fully understand and agree with your feelings! We’ve had about 1,000 cases as of today in my county, and yes…we’re under “stay at home” orders (the Governnor didn’t want to use “shelter in place” because it’s too much like a school shooting!). As for the Democrats you’ve mentioned, you’re right…when politics becomes your religion, you have no God. And then you try to become a God…which is an impossibility. It never ends well for such people. Just wait. As I’ve always said, the wheels of justice grind slowly, but very fine.
