Kids Still In Cages; Nancy’s Going To Africa
Kids Still In Cages; Nancy’s Going To Africa
For months, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her Democrat Party minions have been dogging President Donald Trump and the Border Patrol about kids in cages at the border. With Congress taking a six week Summer vacation, what is Pelosi doing? She is going to Italy and Africa. There is nothing that will help our domestic issues, like the border, more than a boondoggle trip.
From Speaker Pelosi’s House website:
Speaker Nancy Pelosi is leading a Congressional delegation to Ghana to hold high-level discussions with Ghanaian President Nana Akufo-Addo, Speaker Mike Oquaye and other senior government officials, and to visit U.S. Army Africa headquarters in Italy. Speaker Pelosi will also deliver an address to the Ghanaian Parliament.
Solemnly, the delegation will pay respects at Cape Coast and Elmina Castles and the “Door of No Return,” to observe the 400th Anniversary of the First Enslaved Africans Landing in America.
“As we face evolving global security challenges, our delegation will thank our men and women in uniform and receive briefings from U.S. military leaders at U.S. Army Africa headquarters,” Speaker Pelosi said.
Again from the website, these are the folks going on this Congressional Delegation (CoDel):
Speaker Nancy Pelosi
House Majority Whip James Clyburn
Congressman John Lewis, Ways & Means Committee
Congressman Bobby Rush, Energy & Commerce Committee
Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, Budget Committee, Homeland Security Committee and Judiciary Committee
Congresswoman Barbara Lee, Appropriations Committee and Budget Committee
Congresswoman Yvette Clarke, Energy & Commerce Committee and Homeland Security Committee
Congressman Hank Johnson, Judiciary Committee and Transportation & Infrastructure Committee
Congresswoman Marcia Fudge, Agriculture Committee, Education & Labor Committee and House Administration Committee
Congresswoman Karen Bass, Foreign Affairs Committee and Judiciary Committee
Congresswoman Terri Sewell, Intelligence Committee and Ways & Means Committee
Congresswoman Frederica Wilson, Education & Labor Committee and Transportation & Infrastructure Committee
Congresswoman Joyce Beatty, Financial Services Committee and Joint Economic Committee
Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, Budget Committee, Education & Labor Committee and Foreign Affairs Committee
It’s for the kids, right?
Here is Speaker Pelosi’s tweet and sweet picture from Ghana:

According to the Washington Examiner, this trip is set to coincide with the 400th anniversary of the first African slaves being brought to the New World. The article calls the place America, but it was known to Europeans as the New World. And, the CoDel will pay obeisance “at Cape Coast and Elmina Castles and the “Door of No Return” in observance of the anniversary.” Ilhan Omar is on this trip. I am sure she will find Ghana more open and welcoming than she has the United States.
Speaker Pelosi and the crew will also visit the U.S. headquarters in Africa to thank our uniformed services personnel and receive briefings. Speaking of uniformed services personnel, in January of this year, the spouses of the border patrol agents invited Nancy to visit with them She has yet to take them up on their offer. But, Pelosi still insists it’s all about the kids.
Yeah, it’s all about those kids in cages. When the Dems say “kids in cages”, I suspect most people see in their minds, a child in a dog kennel. The feature photo above this post shows kids in a large open space. It may have bars, that’s true. What would the Dems have us do? Leave the children out in the open where they could be preyed upon? And, those aluminum foil wrappers? Those are emergency thermal blankets. They can keep you warm or keep the sun from baking you. I keep a couple that I got at road races in the console of my car for an emergency. Who knew they were offensive.
The point of all this is that if Nancy and the CoDel really cared about the kids, they would have stayed in D.C. to work out a solution for the border crisis. Or, they would have spent their vacation at the border helping our over-worked border patrol agents who care for the kids every day.
It was never about the kids, by the way.
