Nancy Pelosi launches House filibuster to demand vote on Dreamers

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., launched a filibuster of sorts in the House on Wednesday, by taking the floor to talk about the need to pass legislation to protect the Dreamers.

The House was set to start debating the Mortgage Choice Act, but Pelosi took the floor shortly after 10 a.m., and said she wanted to talk at length about immigration.

A filibuster is an action lawmakers can take in the Senate, not in the House. However, both Pelosi and House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., are both permitted to talk at length on the floor because of their leadership status. Both of them often request one minute to speak, but go on for several minutes, a privilege afforded to them because of their status.

Pelosi warned the House that she was going to take advantage of her “leadership minute” to speak as long as she can.

    Many people, including me, have said for years that Peloci is not mentally competent. She keeps proving us correct almost every day now. I wonder when the so called Democrat Party will finally realize this and get rid of her. As for conservatives, we could care less because she helps us about every day with her moronic rantings, but she is a bad reflection on our country and she needs to disappear from public life.

    Why isn’t someone within the House (RYAN) demanding an accounting of the illegal government expenditures relative to harboring those 1.8 million illegal aliens over the past “x” number of years. We need to know how much it will cost CITIZENS in lost wages plus government welfare at today’s cost, if Nanny gets to give them jobs and throw citizens out of work…duh…???

    The Senate Budget Committee published costs of $168 per day for welfare poverty unit .(2011&2012), which was $61,320 per year at taxpayer expense… & my little calculator can’t begin to handle the gazillions of dollars that is @ 1,8 million people who can’t even speak English!

    Nanny IS ALLEGIANCE BOUND! That includes Amendment 14 Section 3 “No person shall… hold any office… having previously taken an oath… …(who) shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the (Constitution), or given aid or comfort to (its) enemies…” and
    Section 4 “…neither the United States nor any State shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States…” Because Nanny didn’t pay the bill for it, and instead violated the preamble to the Constitution and everything else to hire alien workforce locusts to throw citizens out of work into welfare… why isn’t she arrested?

    Maybe we could apply 14-4 to everyone who votes for amnesty, any impound/sell everything they own before we jail them. The Constitution IS “Supreme law of the Land, anything to the contrary notwithstanding, and “all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution…”, (Article 6); “without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion” (their 2nd oath)! That applies every minute they are an official or judge, or collecting any benefit therein, regardless of race or idiocy… including SCOTUS!!

    Botox Betty wants to talk about immigration. So what? Let her ramble so that people can see her early onset of dementia. She wants to praise the “Dreamers” while ignoring the Military. She wishes to grant citizenship rights to those who broke the law to get her at the expense of those who got here legally, played by the rules, worked their butts off for a chance to become citizens. She is spitting on their work and suffering so that she can appear compassionate to her law breaking friends and her law breaker supporting party. She has no more right to being a member of Congress, much les sin a “leadership” position than the illegals she supports who are killing folks around the country do to be here. President Trump is right; She and the rest of her ilk are complicit in every murder, every killing and every crime committed by illegals because of her unwavering ignorance of or immigration law.

    Well, that will be a few boring minutes. Then maybe they can get down to business such as funding the Trump wall.
