Fordham University adjunct professor and Newsmax host and Tom Basile says House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s most formidable years in advancing legislative goals might be behind her, according to The Washington Times.
The “America Right Now,” host highlighted Pelosi’s “two sham impeachments” and “the manufactured Russia-gate scandal” as proof saying her congressional dealings have “made the Soviet kangaroo courts look amateurish.”
According to Basil’s commentary published in an opinion and analysis piece for The Washington Times published on Friday, the current House Speaker has ” demonstrated fidelity to a scorched earth brand of Washington politics,” which makes her only effective in certain areas.
“Mrs. Pelosi has ceased being a force for advancing specific liberal legislative goals and has become wholly consumed with the broader campaign to demonize not just her political opposition but huge swaths of the American public,” Basil said.
The graduate studies professor went on to say that the January 6th Select Committee is Pelosi’s “impeachment 3.0” and that it should come as no surprise to anyone that White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki is linking the president’s continued frantic opposition to the voter integrity laws sweeping Republican states, to the so-call conspiracy theories that “culminated in an assault on our Capitol.”
“Through the whole charade Speaker Nancy Pelosi, now 81 and at times exhibiting the same Bidenesque symptoms of decline, will watch as the media and Big Tech participate in her scheme as they did during the two impeachment debacles,” Basile said.
In reference to the Jan. 6 Capitol Hill riots Basile said that “No one arrested for the riot has been charged with that crime under the U.S. Code for a reason. It’s all just part of another Pelosi must-see cable news marathon.
“We know what happened. The same policing tactics that allowed Ferguson, Missouri, to be torched and cities looted during the Black Lives Matter riots were employed on January 6. Capitol Police opened doors and gates. They made a conscious decision not to engage most of the protestors due to inadequate force levels that didn’t match the intelligence they had about possible demonstrations on that day. They allowed themselves to be overrun, giving those few who intended violence and destruction a foothold in the building.”
The journalist and teacher ended his diatribe against the injustice saying that “Impeachment 3.0 will be the last gasp of a long career that has careened toward the kind of abuse of power that saps the confidence of a nation.”
