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.

    Sooo, that’s THAT.

  3. Obama had no right to invade a country and kill its leader.not a word from the lefties.its only a problem that trump took someone out.just amazing the hypocrisy

  4. Great comment, but I think you forgot a few of her conspirators like shifty shift, nadler, the squad, and last but not least shummer, the clintons, obuma and the master mind,sorry soros!!!!!

  5. Khadafi wasn’t a real threat to America. The commiecrats got mad because the Iran general was, and they want us to be defeated They think that America is an arrogant country and should be defeated. The idiots don’t realize that they would also suffer under Islam rule.

  6. Out of the blue Obama goes into Libya,for no reason,and takes out khadafi.that was perfectly fine with the lefties.but when trump wax a known terrorist oops..big friggin stink by the lefties.truely amazing.

  7. What are you talking about.it ain’t going anywhere in the senate so she didn’t think it would turn out this way.ate we missing something?

  8. Nancy Pelosi and her crowd have to be tone deaf. The majority of American people were OK with Suleimani taken down. Then she and her fellow democrats are so mad when they loose elections. So out of touch.

  9. I am glad the vote did not go her way because it should not she is not president and someone should tell her drunk butt that. If anyone is abusing power it is she and her squad oh wait it is the squad and she is just caving to them.

  10. If I had invented farts I would have made them smell like coffee. Then if someone farted in the morning we would probably think breakfast was ready. Now they smell like my mother’s breath.

  11. Not just passenger planes, now they’re killing peaceful protestors. So the government of Iran, who lied about not shooting down a passenger plane. Is going after their own citizens with live ammunition.
    This is the religion of peace, that Bathhouse Barry always spoke about. It’s the same government that he sent$150 billion dollars, so they could continue trying to kill Americans.
    When you begin shooting unarmed citizens, because they don’t agree with the way you are running the government. It’s almost like how the Democraps want to run our government. Remove a duly elected President, who’s done more good for the nation.
    The only reason Democraps are not shooting at the citizens in this country, is thanks to the 2nd Amendment. They would have citizens call up the militia, like the Bundy Ranch. That was the snake Harry Reid, trying to sell Federal property for personal gain.

  12. I saw the videos on TV and the signs. Maybe it was fake but it didn’t look fake.
    Sorry I used the wrong plane. People make mistakes. No reason to to attack them.

  13. Remember when Killery was laughing it up in the video after she and Obozo o.k.ed the killing of Gadhafi….”We came we saw…he died…lol…lol” …WHERE was PIG losi’s Wars Power’s act then?….he was the leader of Libya
