Clearly anticipating a Democratic takeover of the House of Representatives in November, Representative Nancy Pelosi, the California leftist, says the president has masculinity issues, and that’s why he wants to build a border wall.
Pelosi opined that illegal immigration, border control, and illegal-alien crime aren’t behind President Trump’s insistence on a border wall to stop the gradual colonization of the United States by Mexicans and Central Americans.
Trump, she says, just wants to show he’s a man!
Unhappily, this isn’t the first bit of nonsense Pelosi has uttered on the immigration issue. And, of course, her killing the wall must be preceded by victory on November 6.
“Manhood” at Stake
Pelosi was speaking at the Harvard Kennedy School’s Institute of Politics when she uttered the bizarre comment, which sounded a lot like Stormy Daniels, who nicknamed Trump “Tiny” yesterday after he called the porn queen “Horseface.”
“It happens to be like a manhood issue for the president, building a wall, and I’m not interested in that,” Pelosi said.
Nor is she willing to negotiate, Roll Call reported: “We can’t allow him to say we’re not interested in protecting the border,” Pelosi said. “That isn’t the only way to protect the border. In fact, it’s probably the worst way to protect the border.”
But “Pelosi’s stance on the wall likely won’t matter much in the House, where Republicans during the lame duck session should have enough votes on their side to pass the $5 billion Trump requested for the wall for fiscal 2019.”
The real obstacle, The Hill reported, will be in the Senate, where “Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer has not ruled out negotiating over it.”
And if the Democrats prevail in November, negotiation won’t be necessary. Pelosi is confident on that point; “I think if the election were today we would win the majority ... wave or tsunami, we’ll see in three weeks.”
Much of this talk is predicated upon Pelosi’s prevailing in a run for house speaker, which is by no means assured. Many young Democrats are quite disatisfied with the party’s geriatric white leaders, many of whom are two steps away from a walker and retirement home. At least 60 Democrats want Pelosi replaced.
Other Immigration Remarks
Pelosi is firm on keeping the borders open to import future Democratic voters, which, by altering the country’s demographics, would also alter it politically. Immigrants vote overwhelmingly for Democrats.
As Pelosi said in August, Democrats must win in November because illegal aliens need “leverage” over real Americans.
“We believe that we will have leverage when we win in November. And why that's important?” Pelosi said in something of an open call to undermine border sovereignty:
Because it gives leverage to every family, to every mom who courageously brought her child across the desert to escape, to escape death, rape, gang violence and the rest. Because it gives hope, because of the leverage it gives to families who may have followed — dad may have gone home for a family funeral and now can’t come into the country. All of those injustices have to be corrected.
Like many on the Left, Pelosi thinks it’s time to “come back to a place that honors our values, recognizes the importance of immigration to the success of America.”
And in February, Pelosi fired off a real head-scratcher. In an interview with the Arizona Republic, Pelosi advocated mowing the grass to enhance border security: “Let’s sit down and talk this through and see what makes sense, not some commitment to a promise that we’re going to build a wall and Mexico’s going to pay for it — that’s never going to happen. Let’s talk about where a more serious structure might be necessary, where fencing will do or mowing the grass so that people can’t be smuggled through the grass — that’s something. Levies, technology, personnel.”
Blue Wave Jeoparized?
The question is, of course, whether the Democrats will prevail, as history predicts they will. The president’s party typically loses seats in the mid-term election after his victory.
But some are worried the Democrats overplayed their hand in the vicious, unfounded attacks on U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and will suffer the consequences come Election Day.
Wrote one analyst, “Democrats just killed the blue wave.”
