Of course, we all know that the House freshman caucus is out of control, and Nancy Pelosi knows it too. For her, it is all about controlling the gavel.
Wouldn’t it be amazing if Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi could negotiate with Trump over building a wall and come to a common consensus? After all, it’s what she is paid to do.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is determined to stop President Trump from delivering the State of the Union address on Jan. 29. She says it’s due to the shutdown, but that’s nonsense and just a political ploy. So what is the real reason Mrs. Pelosi doesn’t want the American people to see it? The increasingly obvious reason is the House is in chaos.
The moment Mrs. Pelosi sent her bizarre letter to the president suggesting he not deliver the address in the House and send a written report instead, you could hear the collective guffaw rise from the American people. To bolster her request, she cited a lack of security due to the partial government shutdown. That was absurd on its face and was summarily contradicted by the Secret Service.
At first blush, it would seem Mrs. Pelosi was attempting to keep the president from being heard, but that’s impossible. Another argument is she’s trying to strip him of the trappings of the presidency. That that, too, is completely futile.
Despite the media coverage presuming this is a Pelosi-Trump conflict, her action signals she doesn’t want the American people to see something damaging to her and the Democrats in general — which is a freshman caucus not in her control and more interested in stunts than in governing.
Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the new representative from New York, hasn’t found the time to open an office in her district for constituents, but she did organize and lead other freshmen to run over to the Senate to ostensibly confront Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell about the shutdown.

The entertainment value of this freshman class of Democrats is a novel event. They’re quickly becoming Democrat liabilities. Standing in defiance of the President could work much to President Trump’s advantage.
Four very simple words: Motion to Remove Speaker. Do it, you freshmen moonbats. Do it and take power yourselves.
