Stifling Dissent at a Conference All About Stifling Dissent

By RICK SAUNDERS

In an account coming out of Copenhagen yesterday (don’t strain to find it in the mainstream media), Human Events contributor Connie Hair now reports that, in a move surely destined to win her the Nobel Sleaze Prize, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has “barred Republican members of the congressional delegation to Copenhagen for the U.N. ‘climate change’ conference from participation in the official congressional press conference at Bella Center.” The Bella Center, for those not familiar with the area, is the base for the United States delegation to the Copenhagen Chicken Little Falling Sky Festival.

Hair reports that yesterday afternoon, the six Republicans who had been invited and agreed to be a part of the delegation and attend the cluster festival in Copenhagen were, along with their staffs, “rounded up for transport back to their hotels on buses just as the press conference began. They were not allowed to hold their own press conference.”

Un-freezing-believable. The depths to which Pelosi and her liberal Democrat enablers will stoop to stifle dissent in order to advance their own hypocritical and disingenuous ends seemingly knows no bounds. It would be one thing if a vindictive, dim bulb like Pelosi were merely a minor player on the stage; regrettably–for the nation and, thus, the world–she is third in line to the presidency. Hello? Third.

A more terrifying potential for the future of this nation than Nancy Pelosi at 1600 Pennsylvania would be hard to envision. Make that impossible to envision. The only relevant question therefore becomes: can we wait until next November to get her out of office? And, given the nature and ideological makeup of her home district, do we even have a prayer of effectively nationalizing her election?

Sadly, the chances for either are about as slim as Sen. Chuck Schumer suddenly showing basic decency and etiquette. Don’t hold your breath.

    Rounded up for transport back, what is this the ol' USSR sending them off to reeducation camps or something. What is scarier is that they got on the bus without a fight.
    Jeff, There is a typo above, you have "the cluster festival in Copenhagen" I am sure you meant to type the cluster f*@k in Copenhagen!!

    She is a piece of work. That's it, it's time to take our country back. I'm so tired of these grandstanding elitist blowhards.

    You gotta find a clip of Stewart Smalley shutting down Lieberman in the Senate….. ha ha ha

    Might as well be Larry The Cable Guy up there presiding over that hallowed body.

    In Britain we have been treadted to a campaign denigrating anybody who expresses the slightest dissent from the "on message" p.o.v. as a misanthrope, a holocaust denier, a neanderthal and rabid right wing nutcase. It is fascist attitudes like those that have lost the argument for the AGW evalgelists.

    There is a global war building up between the New World Order and those of us who will insist on dissenting.

    The climate debate, when it can be conducted rationally does not support either the AGW or the sceptic case. Instead it reveals the changes going on in weather patterns are far too complex to be reduced to mere mathematics.

    We cannot analyse climate change, we can only prepare to cope with what the future throws at us and adapt to ensure we give future generations a decent start.

    I wish I had my own copy of her book, to burn.

    Let's see…Copenhagen has 4 inches of snow with more on the way for their first "White Christmas" forecast in 14 years. Who says God doesn't have a sense of humor.

    Her book title pretty much sums it up. To her, and the rest of em, it's all about POWER. Not about us, the constitution, or the future of our children and grandchildren.

    It's time. It's time that someone challenges her. She has dishonored our nation too many times.

    I'd like to see an Burr-Hamilton scenario play out….but I'd like to have Chuck Norris stand in Burr's shoes…..

    Psycho Pelosi is definitely a scary person. I shudder to think she's 3rd in line.

    Anyone heard that there's an Islamic Mosque at Ground Zero in NYC?

    Pay congress minimum wage.

    Aside from the Republican's inexcusable agreement to leave, I wonder if Pelosi ordered that they ride in the back of the bus.

    These guys need to understand that nice guys don't have to finish last — this time they just need to last until the finish.

    Bad as Nancy is, she couldn't get away with it if the press wasn't so dishonest. The press is responsible for the ongoing destruction of this nation.

    Too bad. I was hoping someone would take one for the country and have her plane disintegrate before it got there.

    But, would someone please tell me where in her responsibilities it says that she can take the American public down the river and attend these overseas activities on our dime. See: //usgovinfo.about.com/od/uscongress/a/speaker.htm. Maybe she needed to finish some Christmas shopping and thought that a little tidbit from Copenhagen would do it. I certainly trust she wasn't giving that "tidbit" to the American people, because I'd like to return it and get the cash back.

    Oh yeah, I do see that she's supposed to oversee the Sargeant-At-Arms and the Rules Committee. That Sargent-At-Arms thing went out the window when they were allowed to take the health care amendment off the table when the Republicans asked that it be read. Rules dictate that you cannot do that without a majority vote – a vote which they did not have. Rules? What rules? We don't need no stinkin rules!

    Please, people, vote smart in November and ask everyone you know to vote smart – even though they would have already ruined a great deal of countryby that time. If we change the makeup of Congress, we can get rid of her.

    Further, isn't it interesting that Senator Nelson has now caved and gone along with the healthcrap. Wonder what they bribed him with. I called his office and found that his voicemail was full. So rather than listen to his constituents, he decided to take the bribe like the rest of them. Despicable.

    I fear for my country.

    Bodenzee is right.

  17. Gail B says:

    Wonder if it would get around if a Republican were to introduce a bill to the effect that, if the Dems barred Republicans from decision-making, etc., that those Dems would have their salaries reduced to minimum wage?! — and the Republicans' salaries doubled!
