Speaker Pelosi Weaponizes State of The Union Custom for Resistance Movement – Cancels Invitation…

Showcasing the severe political resistance objectives of Democrats, speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has sent a politically crafted letter to the White House requesting that President Trump cancel his State of the Union address.

The pretense of the letter surrounds the ongoing partial government shutdown and a concern for security.  However, DHS and the Secret Service have stated nothing in the letter is factually correct; and they were not contacted by Pelosi with questions.

In short, it’s a political stunt by Speaker Pelosi and Democrat leadership.

(link to letter)

Not surprised.

    The Senate will make for a fine place to deliver the State of the Union address. And as an added bonus, we won’t have to see Pelosi’s lemon sucking facial expressions while PDJT delivers the address!

    Pelosi just served up a softball to PDJT that he can crush out of the park and she’s too full of TDS to even realize it.

      President can order a joint session and still speak from the house. It is a power he has in Article II.

        The actual language is “he may, on extraordinary Occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them” They would probably fight it based on the “extraordinary” part. But I would love to see him do it if he can

          Just declare the National Emergency on the boarder first, then call the session of Congress to request they fund it. If they don’t then fund through DOD. At least then he forces them to either do something or they still sit on their hands.

            I think the Democrats are guilty of treason and sedition by not showing up to help solve a national problem. I think there should be justice for all Americans who want to be protected and who want secure borders and a healthy immigration system consistent with laws that are on the books.

            By not showing up, they are in revolt.

          But also carrying a measure of disrespect. Don’t take me wrong, I have little respect for harridans, scheisters and traitors. But there _are_ members in both Houses who should witness the execution of duty in accordance with decorum and tradition. By adhering to previous custom, DJT honors the institution while Nancy’s transparet snark does the opposite.
          If our President simply delivers a SOTU like others have done for decades, Nancy and her concerns are powerless. Might even give the frustrated old bag a case of the screaming conniption fits.

    U. S. Constitution
    Section 3.

    He shall from time to time give to the Congress information of the state of the union, and recommend to their consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient; he may, on extraordinary occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in case of disagreement between them, with respect to the time of adjournment, he may adjourn them to such time as he shall think proper; he shall receive ambassadors and other public ministers; he shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed, and shall commission all the officers of the United States.

    The President is not required to give a speech on the state of the union. He can choose whatever format he wishes.

    “Thomas Jefferson’s first address on Dec. 8, 1801, he sent written copies to both houses of Congress to be read by each chamber’s clerks. Jefferson wanted to simplify what he believed was an aristocratic imitation of the British monarch’s speech from the throne, which he thought ill-suited for a republic.”

    Another win for the President.

    He should submit a written State of the Union message to the house. Convene both houses of Congress for a verbal State of the Union Address. Is Pelosi and the rest of the Democrats stay away, they will miss out on having a reply. Schumer will likely grab the opportunity to be the opposition spokesperson. If the Social(ist) Dumbocrat senators stay away too, they become even more of a do-nothing Congress. It’s a win-win-win for those who are doing their job.

      To take up Evadouglas, America’s longest holding foreign policy, the Monroe Doctrine, was contained in that President’s State-of-the-Union letter of 1823.

      Per Jeans2nd warning of foreign policy implications, President Monroe carefully crafted his letter in two separate sections, to soften an otherwise blunt warning to Europeans about steering clear of military adventures in Central and South America, with the intent of reversing the independence of former colonies. When President Monroe wrote the letter, those Europeans were well aware of a certain British adventure in 1812, which Monroe had fought as Secretary of State and Secretary of War under President Madison. In short, that tough Presidential hombre — with a British bullet in his shoulder — was all business.
