Nancy Pelosi

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement after Beijing passed its sweeping so-called “national security law” intended to greatly expand its power to suppress speech, including protests, in Hong Kong:

“Beijing’s so-called ‘national security’ law – passed on the eve of the 23rd anniversary of the handover of Hong Kong from the United Kingdom to China – signals the death of the ‘one country, two systems’ principle.

“The United States Congress has always spoken with one voice in defense of those oppressed by Beijing and in support of freedom, justice and real autonomy for the people of Hong Kong.  We continue to urge President Trump to hold Chinese officials accountable for their abuses including in Hong Kong by deploying sanctions under the 2016 Magnitsky Act and by taking steps under the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act, proudly passed by Congress.  We must consider all tools available, including visa limitations and economic penalties.

“The purpose of this brutal, sweeping law is to frighten, intimidate and suppress Hong Kongers who are peacefully demanding the freedoms that were promised.  All freedom-loving people must come together to condemn this law, which accelerates Beijing’s years-long assault on Hong Kong’s political and economic freedoms.  We must work together in a multilateral way to monitor the implementation of this excessive law and hold Beijing accountable for its violation of the Joint Declaration and the Basic Law.”

      These people are delirious and crawl inside Trump’s butt-hole.

      You’re wasting your time. They just don’t get it.

      They would rather our country go to hell in a hand basket then the safety of our country.

    Great top-notch high school yearbook headline for another copy & paste blog.

    Ms. Pelosi said; We continue to “urge” President Trump, the headline reads; Pelosi “demands” Donald, Big difference.

    We need to mask Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the carrier politicians that’ve been in congress for too long making bad decisions for our country. Term limits will fix this problem because when they get out they will have to live with the decisions they’ve made..

          Your answer to question 1 was incorrect. By the way, it’s ‘its’ not “it’s”. You didn’t answer question #2 either.

    What would Pelosi know about “real men”? She is a political animal who lives in a political bubble, makes decisions based on political gains/loses, pushes her decision through a political Congress who does not care for the individual, just her position and reputation.

    The only thing Pelosi mask does is cover her mouth so you can’t see her dentures moving

    Pelosi is an embarrassment as Speaker of the House. The demoncraps did themselves a great disservice when they put her back into the Speakership. She’s as delusional as Joe Biden, seldom makes any sense, loses her train of thought and I’m pretty sure that’s vodka in her cup. What a nightmare.

    Nancy Pelosi should wear a mask completely over her whole face. I’m so sick of looking at her listening to all her UN-American speeches.
