Pelosi – don’t ever take sides against the family

Only two words, but quite a mouthful when Speaker Nancy Pelosi, in reference to the Soleimani takeout, accused President Trump of “needless provocations.”

Language like that we expect from our enemies.

Where have we heard this before?

We heard it frequently from the Soviets during the Cold War when we took measures to deter their encroachments. 


But this…coming from within…this is new, and if not new, it is rare, and goes beyond resistance to Trump, and into disloyalty against the country.
Ach Zo…it also has a familiar Third Reich ring to it when FDR took steps to halt their advances, and were then ourselves accused of “needless provocations.”

The Israelis hear it every week, always from Iran, and most recently from the ICC, the International Criminal Court, and some of the shady characters who run the joint.

Nothing new. But this…coming from within…this is new, and if not new, it is rare, and goes beyond resistance to Trump, and into disloyalty against the country.

Is that too strong? I don’t think so…especially when you consider the loudest source, that squeaky wheel as coming from Somalia to lecture us and our president.

Talking to you, Ilhan Omar (correctly voted the anti-Semite of the past year) and thereafter Nancy and her entire gang of backstabbers. This would include our home-cooked overheated TV ayatollah Geraldo Rivera (who fills in for the sensationally vapid Marie Harf)…and TV Mullah Chris Matthews…who likened Iran’s reverence for Soleimani to our hero worship for Elvis. 

Apologies for having brought that up, but I had to, in case you still had hope for the fanatical left. Give it up. But that’s just the media, and then there’s Nancy. 

Some things are just not done. “Don’t ever take sides with anyone against the family, ever.” If you remember “The Godfather, Part 2,” and Michael Corleone schooling brother Fredo.

“I know it was you Fredo. You broke my heart.”

Likewise.

Mario Puzo had something else in mind besides the rise and fall of a crime dynasty…allegiance. That’s what made his book and the first two Godfather movies so popular.

We admire the virtues of trust and fellowship within the family, even if they are gangsters. 

That should be a lesson to our politicians, that it is part of our creed, to be true to the family, and respectful to its leader.

Once again, it didn’t happen, if you caught Thursday’s Pelosi press conference.

In case they missed it the first time, she did it again.

The mullahs -- Pelosi gladdened their hearts even further when she referred to Trump’s takeout action as “provocative and disproportionate.” 

Clear enough? Or will a third time be necessary to let them know how she really feels about the president of our country.

They must love her in Tehran. It’s a wonder they haven’t invited her to address THEIR House of Representatives with fanfare and standing ovations.

Nancy, and the rest of your crowd, we know it is you, and you’re breaking our hearts.
