Liars, even the best of them, can only get away with lying for so long. Eventually, someone will figure out how full of it they are.
We all have known people that have been serial liars, and eventually, they get caught in a lie.
Give you an example. About a year ago, a family member of mine came hat in hand needing to borrow money to pay a very substantial electric bill. Being someone that wanted to do them a favor, I gave them the money. Later that same night, they made the mistake of posting on social media about the trip to the casino they were going on.
The House of Representatives may be controlled by one party, but it was nevertheless established by our founders as part of a bicameral legislative body where the voices of the American people can be heard, measured, and considered.
Yet ‘the people’ haven’t been heard very much of late, because fascist House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been keeping the chamber closed while claiming it’s just ‘too dangerous’ for lawmakers to be there in person because of the coronavirus.
That’s nonsense, of course, because the Senate, whose members are, on average, older than their House members and thus more prone to contract the illness, based on what we know, has been in session for weeks, thanks to Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).
In reality, Pelosi has been exploiting the pandemic to exert iron-fisted control over her chamber, keeping members out of session while she and her cronies craft legislation behind the scenes and then call everyone back so they can simply cast a vote.
No amendments. No debate. No representation for the people.
The Hill reports:
ouse Republicans are preparing to file a lawsuit against Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) in an attempt to thwart the use of proxy voting, GOP staffers familiar with the legal action confirmed on Tuesday. …
“Our read is that this is unconstitutional and we think that ideally that Article I could have solved this on our own, but the majority-passed rule that we believe is unconstitutional and so the remedy there is for us to go to the courts and ask for them to confirm our reading of the Constitution, and that will take a little bit of time,” one leadership aide told reporters, adding they believe it raises “significant constitutional questions if any law were to actually become effective as a result of these votes.”
In response, Pelosi whined that the chamber passed the vote-by-proxy scheme, so what’s the big deal? Well, Democrats passed the vote-by-proxy scheme; as the congressional aid noted, it was a party-line vote, and Democrats control the House.
