Nancy Pelosi held one vote on Iran that didn’t turn out like she expected

Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats in Congress fumed over President Trump’s decision to eliminate Iranian terrorist General Qasem Suleimani.

Congressional Democrats immediately searched for a way to undermine the President.

And Nancy Pelosi held one vote on Iran that didn’t turn out like she expected.

Democrats hoped to “rebuke” President Trump by staging a vote on the War Powers Act resolution condemning the Suleimani strike as illegal and limiting the President’s ability to respond to Iranian aggression.

This was a symbolic vote because it faced zero prospect of becoming law.

But even on an empty gesture vote Pelosi was the one that faced humiliation as eight Democrats voted against her unconstitutional power grab.

POLITICO reports:

Eight Democratic centrists opposed the resolution, in part because they believe the measure was brought to the floor too quickly with uncertainty still high in the region, according to several people familiar with the concerns.

“This threat is evolving quickly, and at this point I’m not willing to restrict the U.S.’s ability to respond to keep us safe,” Rep. Stephanie Murphy (D-Fla.), who previously worked on national security issues at the Pentagon, said in an interview. “We need to have the capability to respond.”

Another moderate, Rep. Max Rose (D-N.Y.), said he would oppose the measure for procedural reasons, arguing that the measure is effectively toothless in forcing Trump’s hand.

“Unfortunately, today’s War Powers resolution is a non-binding resolution that simply restates existing law and sends the message that war is imminent,” Rose said. “I refuse to play politics with questions of war and peace and therefore will not support this resolution.”

Just like on impeachment, the bigger show of bipartisanship was support for President Trump and a rejection of Pelosi’s partisan games to sabotage a sitting President.

  1. Jack Nancy is playing tRUMP like s fiddle. It raises his blood pressured best thing to happen to him would be a heart attack or a stroke that deliberates him.

  2. Nancy You own this and will have to live with the memory of the damage you’ve country to our constitution. “Sleep Well Nancy”

  3. Do you think Pelosi expected 8 democrats to vote against the resolution when only 3 democrats voted against impeachment? I could see she wouldn’t have expected that.

  4. Trump did not declare war with Iran, and actually, Iran has been at war with us since 1979. How many Americans have been killed by Iranian terrorists, and Iranian sponsored terrorist do you think?

  5. I think you need to acquaint yourself with Article I, Section 8, Clause 11 of the Constitution which gives the House the power to declare war.

  6. This article fails to mention the Republicans who voted for it. It also passed. I don’t think you can say it didn’t turn out as she expected.

  7. Intelligence is starting to come out. Iran had FOUR US Embassies that were going to be attacked simultaneously. Choice: Obama way- fly over a plane with 1 billion $$$, and tell them what great humanitarians they are, or the Trump way-get rid of the ringleaders. Teach Iran like a very naughty irresponsible child that there are consequences to uncontrolled mayhem and violence whose only purpose is to kill
    innocent civilians. In civilized communities, which certainly does not include
    the terrorist nation Iran, such activities are viewed as deplorable. In Iran, and
    in the Democratic Party, such evil is celebrated.

  8. Fix California first Nancy fancy what wrong with you. Are you on drugs with month twiching.. stop the hate we are one. You are to be blame with your gang of cribs ..

  9. Macy need to flu us on California first before trying to tell the president what to do . Nancy you are making this world worse think how long you been there nothing has change to the worse. Fix California is only one state before you try to think u can fix the country .. American comes first pendija..

  10. What the heck is she trying to do – rewrite the Constitution that we have supported and been guided/ruled by for over 232 years! (September 17, 1787). She is truly an imbecile! Thank God there are enough living humans who still believe in, respect, honor and support our U.S.A. Constitution. People – YOU – we need to be teaching American history to our growing and grown, our grandchildren, and those who dispute foolishly without even knowing what this country was/is built on. In fact, we should be verbal about our American history. If you don’t know it – LEARN it!

  11. Democrat logic – Barack Obama ordered 2800 attacks without Congressional approval. That’s ok. Donald Trump issues 1 attack without Congressional approval and they go nuts.
    Just like when the Democrats were all in for the wall to protect our southern border – when it was Chuck Schumer’s $43,000,000,000 proposal. Along comes a businessman who can get it done for $8,000,000,000 and suddenly they are all against it.
    Diane Feinstein’s husband was “awarded” a billion dollar contract for that FAILED “High Speed Train to Nowhere” in California. That never happened so where’s the money? If you hire a contractor to build a pool in your back yard and he takes the money but you never get a pool – wouldn’t you be in court to get your money back? Contractors go to jail for that.

  12. Yes, and the further she goes with her outrageous behavior, the more Dems will be voting against her crazy resolutions, bills, etc.
    NANCY HAS LOST CONTROL OF HER CULT!
    She is weak, weak, weak!
