Nancy Pelosi, true to democrat party form, took a mountainous problem and pretended it was nothing but an insignificant mole hill. On 2 Jan, the day she became Speaker of the House for the second time, Pelosi disgracefully refused to hear about the terrible situation on our Nations southern border.
DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielson tried to brief border security statistics during a White House meeting, but was interrupted and rebuffed by Pelosi. Nielson was presenting that U.S. officials apprehended 3000 people with terrorist ties and 17,000 criminals trying to sneak across Americans southern border.
Pelosi challenged Nielson’s numbers, as if they were made up, stating that she rejected Nielsons facts.
The DHS Secretary retorted that they were not “her facts”, just “the facts!”
The exchange is the latest glaring example of democrats ignoring massive, mountain sized problems. I blogged about it several years ago and labeled the strategyMaking Mountains Out of Mole Hills and Mole Hills Out of Mountains. U.S. Officials seized 332 pounds of fentanyl being smuggled across the border in 2018 alone. That is enough to kill over 52 million full grown men. If securing America’s southern border isn’t a crisis, on that basis alone, then what is?
The answer from democrats will be another mole hill blown into earth shattering proportions no doubt! Perhaps the world ending video clip of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez dancing?
