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.
