I remember the day back in 1979 that Lucy promised that she would never pull back the football again, if Charlie Brown recovered from his injuries. He did, of course, and over the years that followed, Lucy pulled it back every time. Charlie Brown believed her every time. For Charlie Brown, kicking they ball was his be all and end all, but he never did get to kick it. Now I would never compare the mild mannered Charlie Brown with the vile bully, Donald Trump. But like Charlie, Trump has a "football". His be all and end all is putting on a big show, in which he gets to appear supremely important. And just as he was drooling over the SOTU, Nancy Pelosi became Lucy.

This is the ultimate "Heads I win, Tails you lose" scenario, isn't it. If Speaker Pelosi is Lucy, she is a very adult Lucy with adult goals far beyond embarrassing a bullying Charlie Brown. In fact, although the WaPo describes it as a personal slight (and I guarantee Donny Two-Scoops takes it that way), I suspect that if she gave that any thought at all it was as a matter of necessity.

How about Pelosi for President??
You go Stormy!!!
How about McConnell for weasel of the year?
Yes, what the Orange Grifter wants more than anything is adulation, and then some more, as his emptiness is bottomless. So, I’ve got this video going in my mind, wherein Nancy pulls the football and Ogreputz falls on his most ample ass, while his wig stuff exits stage left.

Eventually the public is going to have enough. Already there have been protests against tRump's asinine shutdown (my apologies to the world's donkey population). There need to be more protests, more hell-raising. I keep finding petitions calling for an end to the shutdown, which I sign and then submit to Care2. Keep contacting your Senators and demand that they vote to end the shutdown without tRump's Maginot Line of a wall!

dt doesn't deserve to emanate his sotu message, he'll spout all his lies, etc. Not on Ms. Nancy's watch.
Madame Speaker did this with style and grace. She's my new Ninja Warrior!!

At the moment, Nancy Pelosi's our best hope. She's keeping things going while Mueller's getting THAT REPORT ready.

Hi everyone. I needed to step back and take a bit of a break from politics for a while. I think this was a brilliant move on Pelosi's part!

Madame Speaker Nancy go girl! She is my hero too. tRump is being very vindictive and needs to be put in his proper place now....That's in prison.
I honestly hope that the idiot doesn't plan on doing his speech. I don't want to hear his lies or see his flipping face.
Thanks TomCat

Yup, Nancy became Lucy and pulled the ball right from under Drumpf.
Unfortunately I read this some 12 hours later and the vindictive 2-year-old has turned the table on her again and on many others, including the military. But what would he care.

"Ms Pelosi blamed security concerns amid the government shutdown and said that if Mr Trump did not wish to delay the speech, he could present it to Congress in writing.
Mr Trump did not immediately respond to the suggestion. But when he did answer Ms Pelosi on Thursday, his response was both petty and potentially dangerous.
On Thursday, Mr Trump sent Ms Pelosi a letter that revealed a heavily secret trip that he said Ms Pelosi and other Democrats were supposed to take to Brussels, Egypt and Kabul.
Mr Trump’s letter, posted in a tweet by his press secretary, Sarah Sanders, told Ms Pelosi that her trip was cancelled in light of the shutdown.
'We will reschedule this seven-day excursion when the shutdown is over,' he wrote. If she wanted to proceed, she could fly commercial, he suggested, although there are no commercial flights directly from the US to Afghanistan.
It was a stunning insult to the politician who stands third in line in the American power structure, behind the president and vice president.
Swiftly, Ms Pelosi’s chief of staff, Drew Hammill, replied with his own series of tweets that corrected the president.
'Rather than being a junket, the stop in Brussels was designed so that Ms Pelosi and Democratic colleagues could meet with NATO commanders, US military officials and others to “reaffirm the United States’ ironclad commitment to the NATO alliance” — of which Mr Trump has repeatedly been disdainful.'
Further, Mr Hammill said, the visit to Afghanistan was only for this weekend, and did not include a stop in Egypt.
They were already on a bus bound for a military jet when the letter arrived, and they subsequently returned to the Capitol.
The exchanges came as everyone is watching to see whether the President or the speaker blinks first over the shutdown. ("

I’m sure that by the time anyone gets to read this here, Drumpf will have retaliated again, possibly endangering even more American lives as he divulges top secret plans in his tweets.

Anything to avoid the new headlines such as the news I just saw coming in and am going to give my full attention now: "Donald Trump ordered opinion polls be rigged, former lawyer Michael Cohen says." It’s Friday, so Rachel Maddow will have something to say about this tonight and I’m looking forward to your posting, TomCat.

Trump is not only 'tricky' as hell, he's also got the spirit of Satan working for him. I'm afraid those who operate with a sense of honor are at a disadvantage with TRumpelstiltskin. It will take 'quantity' over 'quality' to alter the current political direction. Yet, we still need those people of good character to maneuver around this DICKtator. We just need a flood-gate of anti-Trump-corruption forces to fight against the take-over of our government. Let's keep the rains coming !!!! Thanks, TC !!!!
Perhaps all this chaos and hopefully the correction will be the cornerstone of truly making America greater than it's ever been at any time in history. It will take our patience, and more time,.....

With the new events of crooked tRUMP announced today I'm sure Nancy will be on top of it and all the consequences of his actions.

Drumpfelthinskin’s response was first to cancel Pelosi’s trip (on a military flight - due to government shutdown) where she planned to reassure our NATO allies in Brussels and continue on a fact-finding trip to Afghanistan, and then to endanger Pelosi. From today’s WaPo: “House Speaker Nancy Pelosi abandoned her plans to travel commercially to Afghanistan after President Trump canceled her military flight, while leveling the remarkable allegation that the commander in chief, with authority over security preparations, had imperiled the safety of lawmakers and troops when he disclosed the confidential plans.

“We had the prerogative to travel commercially, and we made plans to do that until the administration then leaked that we were traveling commercially,” Pelosi (D-Calif.) told reporters Friday. That disclosure “made the scene on the ground much more dangerous, because it’s just a signal to the bad actors that we were coming,” she said, citing State Department security reports.

Pelosi and several House Democrats were scheduled to leave Thursday afternoon. Among those in the delegation were leaders of committees involved in national security and government oversight as well as a newly elected member with military experience.”

“You never give advance notice of going into a battle area — you just never do it,” Pelosi added. “Perhaps the president’s inexperience didn’t have him understand that protocol. The people around him, though, should have known that, because that’s very dangerous.”

By the way, hours after canceling her military flight, Drumpfelthinskin then sent Melania to Mar-a-Lago...on a military flight.

Too bad the plane with Melania didn't get routed to Russia. I think Putin would be tickled to death. Trumpity-dumpity would scream at the top of his wall. Wouldn't we all have a party if it all came 'tumbling down!'???

The more time that passes, the more obvious it becomes that this administration has aligned itself with deep money interests and illegitimate means justify that pursuit. On a daily basis outright lies to the country our allies and the world at large, open and blatant disregard of our laws, undermining our democracy with encouragement to our foreign enemies to interfere with and undermine our stability.

More shocking than this President is a Senate which chooses not to intervene on behalf of our laws, our form of government and our countrymen. The outright boldfaced lies, misinformation, renunciation of facts, and denial is beyond the pale. Clinically this would be described as pathological. Reality takes a backseat to an unfamiliar cruel greed driven fiction and fantasy.

The Office of the President has no creditability nationally or internationally.

Agent Orange doesn't understand security concerns, though if there was a legitimate threat against him he would certainly pay attention. Pelosi has the experience and the determination to do what needs to be done. She's also much more politically savvy than AO will ever be. I'm thankful she's in charge of the House.
Thanks for the post, TomCat.
