Last week’s antics from Nancy Pelosi top off Pelosi’s hyperpartisan actions throughout the last 3+ years. Though the MSM insisted that she was a master strategist, it’s apparent that she isn’t. That became obvious when she ran into a true master strategist named Mitch McConnell. In that match-up, Pelosi got her fanny spanked. Hard. (Perhaps that’s why she mumbled during President Trump’s SOTU Address?)

Speaking of which, why didn’t Pelosi applaud when Jenayah Davis got an opportunity scholarship? Why didn’t Pelosi applaud when President Trump rattled off a list of impressive economic numbers that prove that, under President Trump’s policies, everyone’s doing better with Trumponomics? Apparently, Pelosi can’t stand prosperity if President Trump’s policies caused it. How disgusting is that? Hint: very. How surprising is that? Hint: it isn’t.

Miranda Devine’s column exposes Pelosi as the hate-filled (but not too bright) leader of the Democrats:

If Pelosi meant to delay handing over the impeachment articles to the Senate as a strategic masterstroke to tie up ascendant socialist Sanders in the Senate and give Joe Biden three weeks on his own in Iowa, that, too, backfired big-time.

‘Granny’ Pelosi needs to retire. She needs to spend more time with her grandchildren. She lost the fight with AOC because she wanted AOC’s supporters without AOC’s ill-advised agenda. She lost that fight bigtime. She lost the impeachment fight, too. What’s worst is that she hasn’t gotten anything accomplished for the American people.

Despite Chairman Schiff’s Democrats’ dishonest attacks against President Trump, he just keeps making life better for Americans. Despite the MSM’s tributes to her and the Democrats, Pelosi hasn’t improved the lives of Americans. How does she explain that away?

I’ll explain it simply. She’s overrated plus she’s a bitch. Here’s how overrated she is:

Trump has gained 10 points since impeachment began in October. Nice one, Nancy. But nonwhites’ approval of Trump also is at a high: 28 percent, up 10 points in a year.

When it comes to Trump’s handling of the economy, he gets 67 percent overall job approval and a resounding 49 percent among nonwhites, the beneficiaries of lower unemployment and higher wages. So almost half of all black and Hispanic voters think Trump is doing a good job with the economy. That makes him hard to beat.

We The People expect better than this:

What a loser. We need Kevin McCarthy as speaker next January.

This week’s events have produced a multitude of winners and some distinct losers. Let’s start with the losers.

Mitt Romney- Mitt Romney sided with Chuck Schumer, Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi when he voted to convict President Trump on Impeachment Article 1. Mitt’s constituents in Utah want him censured.
Nancy Pelosi- In a planned attack, Pelosi ripped up her personal copy of President Trump’s SOTU Address. In ripping up her copy, Pelosi played into President Trump’s hand by looking like a petulant school child. Here’s the scene:

Iowa Democratic Party- We’re almost a week removed from the Iowa Caucuses and we still don’t know who won the Caucuses. The chairman of the party apologized on Tuesday. The chairman of the DNC called for a recanvas of the results. That’s the personification of humiliation.
Biden, Klobuchar and Warren- This trio is essentially a trio of zombie candidates. Biden isn’t attracting any positive attention. What he’s missing in positive attention, he’s making up for in negative attention. According to her allies, Klobuchar keeps gaining ground on the leaders. Unfortunately, she finished in 5th place in Iowa and looks likely to repeat that performance in New Hampshire. Back-to-back 5th place finishes will seal Sen. Klobuchar’s fate. Warren finished third in Iowa, which is decent enough but she’s got race relations problems. Stick a fork in her. She’s finished.

Winners
Mitch McConnell- Despite what CNN, MSDNC and the Washington Post say, he’s the true DC master tactician. Pelosi isn’t the master tactician.
Devin Nunes- The Democrats’ impeachment trial showed that Devin Nunes got virtually everything right on the FBI scandal and with FISA abuse. Everything he got right, Schiff got wrong. Literally.
Iain Lanphier and Charles McGee- Iain was mentioned in President Trump’s State of the Union Address this way:

Iain has always dreamed of going to space. He was the first in his class and among the youngest at an aviation academy. He aspires to go to the Air Force Academy and then he has his eye on the Space Force. As Iain says, “Most people look up at space. I want to look down on the world.”

President Trump then told the rest of the story:

But sitting behind Iain tonight is his greatest hero of them all, Charles McGee, who was born in Cleveland Ohio, one century ago. Charles is one of the last surviving Tuskegee airman, the first black fighter pilots and he also happens to be Ian’s great grandfather. On December 7th Charles celebrated his 100th birthday. A few weeks ago, I signed a bill promoting Charles McGee to Brigadier General. And earlier today I pinned the stars on his shoulders in the Oval Office. General McGee, our nation salutes you. Thank you sir.

That’s what I call a history lesson!
Jenaya Davis- “The next step forward and building an inclusive society is making sure that every young American gets a great education and the opportunity to achieve the American dream. Yet, for too long, countless American children have been trapped in failing government schools. To rescue these students 18 States have created school choice in the form of opportunity scholarships. The programs are so popular that tens of thousands of students remain on a waiting list. One of those students is Jenaya Davis, a fourth grader from Philadelphia, Jenaya. Jenaya’s mom Stephanie is a single parent. She would do anything to give her daughter a better future, but last year that future was put further out of reach when Pennsylvania’s governor vetoed legislation to expand school choice to 50,000 children. Jenaya and Stephanie are in the gallery. Stephanie, thank you so much for being here with your beautiful daughter. Thank you very much. But Jenaya I have some good news for you because I am pleased to inform you that your long wait is over. I can proudly announced tonight that an opportunity scholarship has become available. It’s going to you and you will soon be heading to the school of your choice. Now I call on Congress to give one million American children the same opportunity, Jenaya has just received. Pass the Education Freedom Scholarships and Opportunity Act because no parents should be forced to send their child to a failing government school.”

President Trump reminded the politicians in the House chamber what it’s all about when he said “Members of Congress we must never forget that the only victories that matter in Washington are victories that deliver for the American people.”

Delivering for the American people has become President Trump’s legacy. That’s what makes him this week’s biggest winner. Despite all of the unrighteous fights he’s had to fight, despite all of the criticism he’s taken, despite the lies that’ve gotten told about him (Think Adam Schiff’s parody), President Trump kept his eyes on what’s important. He’s rebuilt the military. He’s killed the nastiest of terrorists. He’s built the strongest economy. He’s put young people like Iain and Jenaya first.

That’s the definition of a winner. He isn’t perfect but his priorities are fantastic.
