The ‘very Catholic‘ Nancy Pelosi came unglued on Friday morning in the wake of the Supreme Court decision stating there is no ‘right to abortion’ in the U.S. Constitution, thereby overturning Roe v. Wade.
Pelosi first strode out to meet the media and refused to even say ‘good morning.’ It was that bad.
“There’s no point in saying good morning, because it certainly is not one,” Pelosi said. “This morning, the radical Supreme Court is eviscerating American rights and endangering their health and safety. But the Congress will continue to act to overcome this extremism and protect the American people.”
But Pelosi was just getting warmed up.
“Today the Republican-controlled Supreme Court has achieved their dark, extreme goal of ripping away a woman’s right to make their own reproductive health decisions,” she went on. “Because of Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell, and the Republican Party, their supermajority in the Supreme Court, American women today have less freedom than their mothers.”
“With Roe and their attempt to destroy it, radical Republicans are charging ahead with their crusade to criminalize health freedom,” she rambled on. “In the Congress — be aware of this — the Republicans are plotting a nationwide abortion ban. They cannot be allowed to have a majority in the Congress to do that.”
But she not only railed against the Supreme Court and impugned its integrity, the Madame Speaker promised vengeance.
“We had passed that legislation, really, in order to make it the wall the land,” she continued. “It is clear that we just have to win a majority in November. Everything is at stake. If you’re a woman, if you care about women, if you respect women, you know that this is a disgraceful, disgraceful judgment that they made.”
“So, needless to say, and you know I quote Lincoln all the time, public sentiment is everything,” she continued. “With it, you can accomplish almost anything; without it, practically nothing. But in order for public sentiment to prevail, people have to know, and people do know.”
This is is a veiled threat to the Supreme Court that the radical left will unleash its rabid mobs against them. Justice Brett Kavanaugh even received an assassination attempt at his doorstep, which the Democratic Party did nothing to condemn.
Despite Pelosi’s smears of the nation’s highest court, going so far as to depict the justices as “right-wing politicians,” her polarizing statements about the court’s decision are devoid of rational basis. Legal scholar Jonathan Turley picked it apart.
…Speaker Pelosi just called these justices "right-wing politicians." It is another attack on the integrity of the Court and its members. Yet, even law deans have called these justices "partisan hacks." https://t.co/vEgxiTbK0u

“Speaker Pelosi just repeated the false claim that this decision now undo cases on contraception and other areas,” Turley said. “That is simply untrue and the Court expressly addressed that false claim in the opinion…”
“The majority rejects that claim and notes that ‘perhaps this is designed to stoke unfounded fear that our decision will imperil those other rights.’ Having the Speaker refer to the next election despite the express statement to the Court seems to reaffirm that view,” he added.
With Speaker Pelosi and the radical Democratic Party, everything is politics. If that means exhibiting disgraceful behavior that is beneath the dignity of their offices, in order to diminish the authority of an institution and whip up their base into a frenzy, then so be it. The only way to put an end to this cynical and destructive behavior is for voters to punish them at the ballot box. See you in November, Madame Speaker.
