Election Fraud NATO Involved! There is a Smoking Gun in these Trips…?
“Our Congressional delegation came to the 2020 Munich Security Conference to deliver the message that the U.S. commitment to NATO and the transatlantic alliance is ironclad.
“On our arrival in Munich, our delegation received top-level briefings from U.S. military commanders and diplomats, including operational updates from NATO Supreme Allied Commander Europe / U.S. European Command (EUCOM) General Tod Wolters and U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) Commander General Stephen Townsend. As ever, we were honored to bring the gratitude of the Congress and the American people to our men and women serving overseas.
“On Friday, I was honored to speak before the Munich Security Conference and engage in a conversation with Bundestag President Wolfgang Schäuble on the state of democracy in the West and the struggle between democracy and autocracy. I sounded the alarm against the Sinofication of the information highway via the integration of Huawei 5G into our telecommunications infrastructure.

Weak Kneed Pelosi, Schiff And Biden Whine After Trump Kills Iranian General (thefederalistpapers.org)
It did not take long for Democrats to criticize President Donald Trump after he ordered a strike that killed top Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani.
What you need to understand, what Democrats do understand but assume their voters are gullible enough to not comprehend, is that this was a sensitive operation.
Consulting with a Congress that has proven to be prone to leaks prior to such a sensitive strike could have placed American lives in danger.
But that is the tack that many Democrats have taken in criticizing the president and at the top of the list is House Speaker and California Rep. Nancy Pelosi.
“American leaders’ highest priority is to protect American lives and interests. But we cannot put the lives of American servicemembers, diplomats and others further at risk by engaging in provocative and disproportionate actions.,” she said in a statement,
“Tonight’s airstrike risks provoking further dangerous escalation of violence. America – and the world – cannot afford to have tensions escalate to the point of no return.
“The Administration has conducted tonight’s strikes in Iraq targeting high-level Iranian military officials and killing Iranian Quds Force Commander Qasem Soleimani without an Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) against Iran. Further, this action was taken without the consultation of the Congress.
“The full Congress must be immediately briefed on this serious situation and on the next steps under consideration by the Administration, including the significant escalation of the deployment of additional troops to the region,” she said.
She was quickly followed by fellow California representative and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff.
“But Congress didn’t authorize and American people don’t want a war with Iran,” he said. “All steps must now be taken to protect our forces against the almost inevitable escalation and increased risk.”
Keep in mind that what President Trump did was take out a leader who has killed hundreds, if not thousands, of Americans.
But even former Vice President Joe Biden, whose former boss President Obama dropped around 20,000 bombs on the Middle East, criticized the president.
“President Trump just tossed a stick of dynamite into a tinderbox, and he owes the American people an explanation of the strategy and plan to keep safe our troops and embassy personnel, our people and our interests, both here at home and abroad, and our partners throughout the region and beyond, he said.
“I’m not privy to the intelligence and much remains unknown, but Iran will surely respond. We could be on the brink of a major conflict across the Middle East.
“I hope the Administration has thought through the second and third-order consequences of the path they have chosen.
“But I fear the Administration has not demonstrated at any turn the discipline or long-term vision necessary—and the stakes could not be higher,” he said.
Fear any of these people leading America. They are of the same mindset as former President Jimmy Carter.
WASHINGTON — For European allies worried about President Donald Trump’s America First rhetoric, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and visiting lawmakers came to Europe to point out that Congress is a co-equal branch of government.
On Tuesday, Pelosi and a group of House Democrats spoke in Brussels after the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, where she met with members of the Belgian government and officials from the European Union.
“We’re not a parliamentary government even though we’re parliamentarians,” Pelosi said at a news conference. “We have Article 1, the legislative branch, the first branch of government, co-equal to the other branches and we have asserted ourselves in that way.”
Her comments came as the largest congressional delegations yet visited the NATO Parliamentary Assembly and, days earlier, the Munich Security Conference, an annual gathering world leaders. At both events, lawmakers held multiple meetings with leaders from foreign governments, the NATO alliance and the European Union.
Assessments of transatlantic tensions at Munich ranged from “powerful subtext” to an “open and angry.” While German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s defense of the Western alliance was met with a standing ovation, Vice President Mike Pence’s campaign rally-style exhortations that allies abandon the Iran nuclear deal and meet their defense spending commitments both fell flat.
“Perhaps in a nod to the 2020 presidential election and a possible change, the lineup featured former Vice President Joe Biden, a potential candidate. He pledged support to NATO and the EU, arguing it was in America’s interest to lead internationally. “We will be back,” he said to his own standing ovation.”
In Brussels, Pelosi pointed the House’s passage of a resolution in January meant to bar Trump from withdrawing the U.S. from NATO as a product of Democratic leadership.
“I don’t think that there’s any difference between Democrats and Republicans on our relationship with NATO. This is not partisan in any way,” Pelosi told reporters.
Republicans touring Europe also asserted themselves—to warn the Trump administration off any plans for rapid withdrawals from Syria and Afghanistan. Breitbart and The Washington Post reported that acting defense secretary Patrick Shanahan got an earful in a private meeting with more than a dozen lawmakers, particularly from Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.
Graham told reporters he let Shanhan know the administration’s plan to withdraw all U.S. troops from Syria by the end of April, “the dumbest f—ing idea I’ve ever heard.”
“Congress has to be the adult in the room,” Jackson Lee said. “I’ve been on the side of opposing the Iraq War extensively, and questioned Syria, but I do believe [in] the responsibility of Congress for checks and balances. Precipitous withdrawals that impact our allies is not an adult way to perform.”
Beside Jackson Lee sat Turner, Rep. Elissa Slotkin, who is a member of the House Armed Services Committee and former acting assistant secretary of defense, and Sen. Chris Coons, who is a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. U.S. lawmakers who came to Munich, they said, wanted to show the world there is another branch of government, and it values alliances.
“There were many senators and House members that, given the current context, felt called to invest the time and energy to be here,” said Coons, D-Del. “You have people who are really far apart in our domestic politics saying the same thing about the value of NATO, the transatlantic relationship, our determination to stay with you going forward in our security commitments and the value commitments that hold us together.”
While Congress often stumbles on budgeting, Jackson Lee emphasized that House Democrats have embraced Congress’s oversight role, with investigations into the executive branch and the 2016 presidential election.
“We have the power, we need to use it,” said Jackson Lee.
In addition to Pelosi, the congressional delegation includes Reps Nita Lowey and Eliot Engel, D-N.Y; Joe Wilson, R-S.C.; Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Ted Deutch, D-Fla.; and Brad Schneider, D-Ill.
