I will not accept this, and if you do, have your prison jump-suit measured.
You’ll be needing it.
Last week, Democrats in the House passed a new rule requiring members to pass through a metal detector before they entered the House floor. After all several Democrats said they were all scared and stuff of those scary GOP members who support the Second Amendment. Some of them even own those evil guns! ,
Some House members tried evading the metal detectors and entered through what’s known as “the speaker’s lobby,” so Speaker Pelosi began issuing fines for that. Rep. Louis Gohmert was fined $5,000 after briefly leaving the floor to go to the bathroom. Then Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Il) —if it had been a Democrat, we never would have heard about it—caught Pelosi herself entering through the speaker’s lobby and avoiding the detectors. Because metal detectors are for the little people. The beaten people. The submissive or soon to be. Sort of like electric collars.
Fox News (of course Fox News-–you don’t think any of the regime supporting media sources would dare report this, do you?) said:
“She opened the session on the floor, she came through what is known as the Speaker’s lobby,” Davis said. “We are all told, one Republican was fined for doing this just yesterday, that you cannot walk through those entrances unless you are disabled.”
Also reporting the episode were the New York Post, The Blaze, The Epoch Times—you know, all of those lying, enemies of the state who make up things that are designed to convince the gullible the progressives and Democrats aren’t the saviors of all the is Good—but not the REAL news media. Okay, apparently Yahoo did report the story, but that’s just like Time snitching on the election-rigging. Pelosi’s office did not deny the Davis’s accusation, despite requests for comment. Of course it didn’t! She did break her own rule. Of course she did…because she can. What’s the big deal?
Rep. Dan Crenshaw is such a stickler, but then he was in the military and has some antiquated notions. “Pay the fine, Speaker Pelosi,” he tweeted. The GOP rep then told Fox News,
“Now is this a smart rule? No. Is this a rule that makes sense? No of course not. But that’s not the point, the point is they’re her rules. She’s literally confiscated property in the form of money, which we think is unconstitutional, but in any case they’re doing it. She won’t abide by the rules herself so we’re going to make a huge push for her to actually have to pay that fine.”
Davis called the Capitol Police to report the incident, who are supposed to send a report to the acting Sergeant-at-Arms, Timothy Blodgett. Then he issues the fine. But it seems the Capitol Police never reported the incident.
“Yesterday, at approximately 9:59 am, multiple members observed the Speaker of the House entering the House Chamber without completing security screening,” the Republicans wrote yesterday. “What was observed was a clear violation of House Resolution 73 and you are required by House Rules to impose this fine. Please inform us once the fine has been assessed. We look forward to a prompt response to this inquiry.”
Oh, please. Nancy Pelosi wouldn’t deliberately be so hypocritical, dishonest, and unfair as to…oh. Right. I forgot.
Now what? And no, this is not a little thing. The Republicans need to metaphorically go to war over this, and if they don’t, patriotic Americans will have to, and without the “metaphorically.” Pelosi should pay the fine, explain herself, and, I believe, resign. What she has exhibited in doing this is far worse than Rep. Taylor-Greene’s outrageous tweets. Those were words. This is conduct, and the conduct of a dictator.
As for Ethics Alarms, the gloves are off.
