In news everyone has been waiting for, official action has been initiated on Pelosi. More specifically, her intriguing mental state. On Monday, Rep. Doug Collins introduced a formal resolution calling for “Speaker” of the House Pelosi to be removed from her position.
“Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s unwillingness to abide by the Constitution, combined with her recent actions, call into question her own mental fitness, which is why it’s critical that the House of Representatives demand her removal from the line of succession …

What makes Collins’ resolution especially impressive is the fact that it provides a list of several instances wherein Pelosi has repeatedly, and rather egregiously, refused to lead. Even worse, the list of reasons also contains an effective flashback reel of Pelosi’s own shirking over her constitutionally enshrined duties.
For instance, Collins referenced Pelosi’s rather ill-advised impeachment inquiry into Trump, that resulted in nothing tangible, aside from elevated stress across American households during the holidays.
“[Pelosi] has spent the majority of the House of Representative’s time pursuing baseless and fruitless investigations … On October 31, 2019, Speaker Nancy Pelosi oversaw the first party-line vote to begin an impeachment inquiry into a president in the history of our country …” [Source: Fox News]
We all know how that ended. Democrats were fixated on impeachment and Trump’s then “racist” flight policies towards China (which Democrats later embraced), while Trump was meanwhile attempting to fight a real virus from abroad and a fake impeachment from within.
However, Pelosi had all kinds of other fun and games in store for 2020, including rather ill-timed hair salon visits, as Collins also beautifully notes.
“[Pelosi] visited a shuttered hair salon in San Francisco where she received a blow-out without wearing a mask in violation of San Francisco’s laws concerning the coronavirus;” and “cast blame on the salon’s owner for ‘setting her up.” [Source: Fox News]
In other words, Pelosi broke her own rules, and instead of apologizing (the smart PR move), she wheeled around and blamed a salon owner that she’s effectively put out of business. Nice one.
While Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) is known to afflict a wide array of individuals, Pelosi retains the dubious honor of being one of the most obvious long-term cases. It’s clearly robbing her of even the most basic PR judgment, which these days is just about everything for a given official.
Just check out the activity on social media, not exactly the bastion of complex critical thinking. But it sure does judge on appearances, and Pelosi’s appearance at a hair salon was especially bad.
Either that, or she is the most openly destructive towards Trump in everlasting attempts to obstruct them, even though these attempts come at the determinant of the American people.
One can not only hope for a major sweep for Trump in 2020, but also of both the House and Senate, diminishing Pelosi back to the minor roles in which she belongs. Or, if Collins’ resolution gains any merit whatsoever, then she may not even be eligible at all.
Regardless of what ultimately happens or does not happen with Collins (recalling the intelligence agencies’ continued, current stalling of Trump), he has surely brought to the forefront of the news, at least briefly, that Pelosi isn’t fit to lead a hotdog stand in San Francisco, never mind even remotely execute her critically important responsibilities now.
As noted by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, resolution or no resolution, Pelosi will hopefully be given (long overdue) walking papers by the end of November 3.
“What I’m in favor of is defeating Nancy Pelosi and [Jerry] Nadler and all the others … The real challenge would be we’re … four weeks away from [the] election, or 40-some days. These Democrats could actually vote against Nancy Pelosi, use it in their campaigns to say they’re not with her, even though they vote with her 95% of the time … I think the best move is win 218 seats and that defeats Nancy Pelosi.” [Source: Conservative Brief]
Whichever method prevails, hearing less of Pelosi in just over a month’s time would be music to virtually everyone’s ears.
Voting cannot come soon enough!
