Delusions of Grandeur By Charles Taylor (Florida)


81 years old, Nancy Pelosi has said that if the January 6 protesters had attacked her, they would have had a “battle on their hands,” as she is a “street fighter.” These are delusions of grandeur. She is a frail old woman and would not do well in unarmed combat, but if she was armed, she would be fine, but she wants guns for civilians banned, while being happy to have Washington guarded by brutes with guns, the National Guard. She supplies the best reason against gun control, because guns are the great equalisers, giving a Pelosi a fighting chance against someone stronger. Also, I highly doubt that she has ever been in a street fight, unless it was some dispute over shopping.


“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) claimed the January 6 Capitol rioters would have “had a battle on their hands” if they messed with her, adding that she is “a street fighter.”

“That’s what they were setting out to do,” Pelosi told USA Today, adding the rioters had intended to access herself and other targets such as former Vice President Mike Pence.

She added that if they had reached her, she would not have been someone to mess around with.

“Well, I’m pretty tough. I’m a street fighter. They would have had a battle on their hands,” she continued.

Members of Congress had to evacuate the scene in gas masks after a violent mob took overthe U.S. Capitol building.

Pence, in his duty as vice president and president of the Senate, was overseeing proceedings to certify Joe Biden’s electoral victory.

The chaos resulted in five deaths, including U.S. Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick.”


“Well, now that we're months removed from the Capitol "riots", we guess it's time to throw the narrative of how extremely dangerous all of the "domestic terrorists" who stormed the Capitol were and move back to meaningless political posturing.

That appears to be what Nancy Pelosi is doing, telling USA Today this week that the capitol insurrectionists would have "had a battle on their hands" if they had encountered her in the building.

Well, I’m pretty tough. I’m a street fighter. They would have had a battle on their hands,” Pelosi said, according to the NY Post

But Pelosi didn't stay and fight, despite her proclaimed "street fighting" roots. She evacuated the building, ostensibly in a gas mask like the rest of Congress, on January 6, when the insurrection took place. 

The breach of the Capitol took place while Vice President Mike Pence was presiding over proceedings to certify Joe Biden's electoral win. One of the viral images of the day was Richard “Bigo” Barnett, who break into Pelosi's office and got a photograph of himself taken sitting at her desk. He was reportedly carrying a stun gun at the time.

Recall, we reported in late March that with prosecutors expected to announce the first plea deals for individuals charged as part of the Capitol Riots on Jan. 6  in the coming days, Politico reports that many of the suspects allegedly involved in the "attempted insurrection" likely won't face jail time, which could be a "jarring reality check" for (mostly liberal) Americans outraged by the "storming" of the Capitol.”


“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi would not have been elected to Congress in the first place were it not for Republicans in San Francisco she tricked into backing her over another Democrat, who was openly gay.

Pelosi, according to a book excerpt, literally sent out mailers in her 1987 special election primary to registered Republicans in her district with elephant logos on them, pushing Republicans to vote for her. The mailers also criticized efforts to raise taxes, and argued Pelosi would oppose income tax hikes if elected to Congress.

The push worked, and delivered her thousands of GOP votes. Had she not gotten those Republican votes these mailers helped deliver for her, given the close margin of her first victory that then sent her as the only Democrat into the runoff that sealed her election to Congress in the 1987 special election in San Francisco, she might not have ever won in the first place—and might not be Speaker of the House today, her second stint in the job.

This revelation, one of many about the first female Speaker of the House of Representatives in a forthcoming book from USA Today’s Susan Page, is in an excerpt obtained by Breitbart News exclusively from Madam Speaker: Nancy Pelosi and the Lessons of Power. The book comes out on April 20.

It is a particularly relevant story, too, for a number of reasons these days. First and foremost, Pelosi is now one of the biggest champions of raising taxes on higher earners—a complete shift away from the message those original mailers she used to get elected sent to Republicans in San Francisco showed.

It also demonstrates that Pelosi was once willing to use Republicans to win—something she is rarely now willing to do. Several decades later, Pelosi has been one of the most partisan Speakers in modern history in both of her stints atop the lower chamber of Congress. She regularly rams through controversial legislation, like the notable examples of Obamacare in her first stint as Speaker and the recently-passed $1.9 trillion coronavirus pandemic spending bill in this most recent turn.

The excerpt also shows Pelosi, a master navigator of the contours of Congress, had an early history of being able to “Count Your Votes,” as she is quoted in the book saying.

The death of then-Rep. Sala Burton (D-CA) in 1987 opened up California’s 5th congressional district in San Francisco to a special election. Pelosi, who was planning her own run for the seat, ran into opposition inside the Democrat Party from then-Board of Supervisors member Harry Britt—an openly gay man who would, according to Page’s book, “make history if he won.”

“At the time, no openly gay candidate had ever won his or her initial election to Congress,” Page wrote.”

And old Nancy has been busy, so maybe this is her sort of “street fighting.”
