With the Great Heist of 2020 in its final stages, President Trump’s true opponent in the 2020 election — the corrupt media — has been quick to dispel any thoughts about voter fraud taking place in the last few states that tipped the election to Joe Biden.
So too have Democrats, as seen when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., took to calling Trump a domestic enemy Friday for daring to question the counting process.
Speaking to reporters, while betraying a certain intimacy with some, Pelosi attacked the president over his policy decision to allow regulations to automatically sunset in some federal agencies when she took her rhetoric to a shameful level.
“So many people have said to me, and perhaps some of you along the way, what damage do you think that Trump will do between losing the election and the swearing — the inauguration of Joe Biden? Maybe you didn’t phrase it quite that way, but that’s how I heard it. And we knew that he would be up to mischief, separate and apart from trying to destroy the credibility of our elections, which we criticize other nations for doing and all enemies foreign and domestic making an assault on our elections. Well, we have one domestic.”
This is not the first time Pelosi has called Trump a domestic enemy, as seen back in August when she ripped the president and his entire administration for interfering with the electoral system — this is continuing a rich tradition of Democrats projecting their own behavior on opponents.
“The Russians were there and they are there now 24/7 trying to interfere in our election, but they’re not the only ones,” Pelosi said. “We take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic. And sadly, the domestic enemies to our voting system and our honoring of the Constitution are right at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue with their allies in the Congress of the United States.”
Pelosi told Democrats that their party has “a mandate“
After being called out by her fellow Democrats on a caucus phone call after the party lost a number of seats they should have won, Pelosi responded to the election being called for Joe Biden Friday morning by suggesting Democrats have “a mandate.”
“This morning it is clear that the Biden-Harris ticket will win the White House,” the speaker said. “His election is historic, propelled by the biggest vote ever in the history of our country — 73.8 million and counting Americans,” she proclaimed. “Most votes ever received any received by any presidential ticket in history.”
“President-elect Biden has a strong mandate to lead,” Pelosi continued, “and will have a strong Democratic House with him and many Democrats in the Senate.”

When a reporter surprisingly reminded Pelosi that she lost seats in the Democratic caucus, she again tried to spin that into the party having a mandate by saying they helped contribute to “Biden’s success.”
“So we’re very proud to be part of that mandate — very proud of that,” she replied.
“We’ve lost some battles, but we won the war,” Pelosi added, slamming her fist on the lectern as she added, “We have the gavel. We have the gavel.”

As for the caucus call, freshman Rep. Abigail Spanberger, D-Va., who won reelection by less than 5,000 votes, was very outspoken, saying that “no one should say ‘defund the police’ ever again” and “nobody should be talking about socialism.”
Spanberger concluded by warning that if Democrats don’t wake up, they’ll “get f–king torn apart” in 2022.
