More Evidence that Nancy Pelosi is a Low-Information Member of Congress

Have you ever wondered why ignorant people get elected to political office? The voters know that they will not follow the rules. They know that they will not keep their oath. If enough pressure is put on them, they will vote the way

The latest ignorance coming from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is astounding. In reaction to the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School and the call for more gun regulation, Pelosi said that members of Congress took an oath to “protect and defend. That is our first responsibility.”

Protect and defend what? How?

Something’s missing. What did Pelosi and other members of Congress take an oath to protect and defend?

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.

Pelosi took an oath to “support and defend” the Second Amendment since it is part of the Constitution.

Nancy Pelosi can’t defend me if an intruder breaks into my house and wants to do me harm. I don’t have her private number, and she couldn’t get here fast enough to defend me. In fact, without a gun, Ms. Pelosi would be defenseless.

All she could do is tell the intruder that what he’s doing is against the law.

“Didn’t you see President Obama, surrounded by children, sign 23 Executive Actions that were designed to stop gun violence? Shame on you. Now put down your weapon and follow these new orders from the President.”

Writing that made me laugh and cry at the same time.

We shouldn’t be surprised that Ms Pelosi is a low-information member of Congress. When she and her fellow Democrats were pushing healthcare reform, she told the world that the legislation needed to be passed even if it had not been read:

“‘It's going to be very, very exciting,’ Pelosi bubbled, telling the 2010 Legislative Conference for the National Association of Counties that Congress ‘[has] to pass the bill so you can find out what's in it, away from the fog of controversy.’”

I can't see how passing new laws to curtail my freedom is protecting and defending me. These laws are making me less secure and criminals more secure since they don't obey laws.

    It's not ignorance, it's stupidity. The same disease afflicts her that also afflicts Boxer, Feinstein and Speier (and all other liberals). That disease is the mental disorder known as liberalism. Nazi Piglosi (and all the other libs) are idiots of the first order.

  • nancy miller

    I still haven't found out why and how she went to Syria and made nicey nice to that killer that is at the head of that country when it was on the no visit list.

  • shearwater

    Sure she is a "low information legislator." She has to vote for a bill before she knows what's in it!

  • Justthinkin54

    So what are we suppose to do, trade in our guns for children so we can feel safe as they surround us, what a loser. This guy is the King of Distraction. Let's get back to Benghazi and Fast and Furious. We need answers not distraction Mr. President. And now lady's and gentlemen we will move on to the next distraction, The Debt Ceiling. Hillary had better get her testimony on record before she is put on you know who's hit list, you know the same guy that won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009. Such a hipocrite.

    • Phillip_in_TX

      We will not find anything out when Hillary testifies. When she fell down and bumped her head, everything fell out, all 2 micrograms.

  • Jack Parker

    It is already fully established that she is an ignorant, naive, idiot. Do we really need more evidence.

    • Phillip_in_TX

      That's okay. When there is no money left, they won't have a choice.

    She is proof that in order to be a liberal democrat you never have to think beyond the tip of your nose.

    Pelosi is living proof that some people should never be allowed to breed.

    If Nancy Pelosi is unavailable to protect the homeowner, threatening the intruder with an 8x10 photo of her just might do the job, sort of a modern day Medusa effect.

  • Kent2012

    it helps to have nothing constructive to do with your time and a huge pile of money to get elected with.

    The Democrat s of years ago have fallen into this stupid progressives party and have lost their frig gin minds. Pelosi is Obama's idiot in Congress and Reid the senile idiot in the Senate. To bad Pelosi's mother didn't practice birth control the "Swallow" method.

    America's patriots are finally coming of age in this war of ideas. The right-of-passage is, of course, listening to such wackiness. From it we are able to laugh our asses off, which is why I suggest we shift our angry protests, to a less confrontational venue, LAUGHTER.

    I can see it all now: super pundits like Bill Whittle, and others, sitting on a make-shift stage, roasting effigies of King Obum'mier and his minions. Those, having a funny roast, get a chance at the mike for others to enjoy. It says, "Libtardo-Rexus," "you've already lost."

    In Saul Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals," Rule #4A states: "Ridicule is man's most potent weapon." From their own game plane, let's create a version of our own ridicule. Let's laugh'em into oblivion. Rule #6: "a good tactic is one your people enjoy."...Semper Fi

  • Allen gdberg

    Nancy cannot read, and is a perrennial member of
    The all-God squad dumb as a bag of hammers team!!!

    • Phillip_in_TX

      Not quite sure about the "hammers." You see, hammers serve a useful purpose, Nancy "witch hazel" Pelosi does not.

    This woman should be on the streets pushing a shopping cart - not congress.

    An open letter to all liberals that failed English and American history in school:
    “Do not separate text from historical background. If you do, you will have perverted and subverted the Constitution, which can only end in a distorted, bastardized form of illegitimate government.” James Madison
    Definition of to KEEP: to hold or retain in one's possession; hold as one's own.
    Definition of to BEAR: to carry, transmit, transport, have a characteristic of and exhibit.
    Definition of INFRINGE: to “encroach” upon in a way that violates law or the rights of another.
    THIS IS THE WORD MOST FORGETEN……INFRINGE!!!!! Read the meaning!!!
    Definition of INFRINGE/ENCROACH…….. 1: to enter by gradual steps or by stealth into the possessions or rights of another. 2: to advance beyond the usual or proper limits
    Why is this so hard to understand? The meanings of the words in the Second Amendment have not changed since the amendment was ratified.
    I am not aware of the Second Amendment being repealed or amended.
    In reference to arms control by the states; the Fourteenth Amendment Section .1. is crystal clear.
    Section. 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; (My emphasis) nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
    Many in politics from the legislative, administrative branches and or judges cite “precedent” as a justification for the violations of our rights as guaranteed in The Constitution of These United States of America. Precedent only describes what has been done and gotten away with, not if it was done in compliance with the supreme law of the land or in accordance with the oath of office to uphold The Constitution.

  • Pay Close Attention Folks

    Also please note that Obama believes in your 2nd amendment right to bear arms. I've heard it from him, his press secretary and others on the left. What happened to your RIGHT to KEEP and bear arms ???? Amendment II A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free
    State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be
    infringed. For those who don't know, this comes from the Bill of Rights. Yes, lefties, right after the 1st amendment, you know, the one that lets you say whatever you want without anything to back it up.

  • Phillip_in_TX

    Low information? How about "brain dead?"

  • strangerinmyownland

    Congresswoman Pelosi doesn't give a whit for the Constitution. Love at the quote you used. That wasn't by accident or stupidity. Do not underestimate your opponent
