In the world of politics, unexpected plot twists are not uncommon. Just when the dust seemed to settle, a new twist in the tale has taken center stage: Nancy Pelosi’s sudden eviction.
But don’t be fooled by the surface-level explanation. Beneath the seemingly straightforward narrative lies a McHenry mystery waiting to be unraveled. As news of Pelosi’s departure echoes through the corridors of power, whispers of intrigue and hidden agendas begin to permeate the political landscape.
Was it truly a matter of McHenry’s rise to power? Or was something more sinister at play? When it comes to Pelosi, you can bet some kind of back door deal is really at play. I wouldn’t get too comfortable believing McHenry pulled this off in the blink of an eye.
The Cover Story
On the surface, we’re told McHenry served Pelosi notice. She was to vacate her hideaway office PRONTO, as it was to be rekeyed today.
Pelosi really played up the dramatics, issuing a response that said:
“Sadly, because I am in California to mourn the loss of and pay tribute to my dear friend Dianne Feinstein, I am unable to retrieve my belongings at this time,” she said. As far as I’m concerned, this wicked witch should’ve mounted her broomstick and flown away long ago. It’s just never that easy in politics.
Still, cheers from the Republicans erupted over through the corridors of Congress. To be honest, when I first saw the headline, I shared in the excitement. Then, I had to ask myself one question. If McHenry was our guy all along, how is it that he was so closely aligned with McCarthy?
Is McCarthy, like Obama, trying to hold some kind of shadow-power over Congress? He says he won’t run for speaker again, but is there more to it? I, for one, wouldn’t be at all surprised.
The Lingering Questions
Could Pelosi be behind the big theatrics? Perhaps she suggested McHenry give her a huge, public ousting in order to maintain favor with Republicans.
Pelosi might’ve already moved most of her belongings, in a planned departure from her hideaway office. If Trump’s presidency taught us anything, I think it taught us to always expect a rat. As such, I have two reasons to be skeptical of McHenry. The first one is easy- McCarthy handpicked McHenry to take his place should he be removed thanks to the new House rules that allow any member to be kicked to the curb.
Secondly, and far more importantly is McHenry’s record.
According to NPR,
McHenry isn’t new to leadership. Apart from being House Financial Services chair, he served as ranking member of the committee before the GOP majority in the 118th Congress. Before that, he was a member of Republican leadership as chief deputy whip.
Why would his role as a leader give me pause? Because he did nothing about Nancy Pelosi until today, long after her power was revoked.
Many voters believe Pelosi and her HINO (husband in name only) should be prosecuted for insider trading and real estate crimes.
In fact, I read that Pelosi is so ruthless with her wineries, that she turned off the actual water to try and put another winery out of business. That winery in turn donated the wine for the next Republican fundraiser in Pelosi’s way. And while I don’t have enough facts to verify that particular story, I do know Paul Pelosi isn’t brilliant enough to make his money off the stock market.
Yet, if you dig through Pelosi’s record, you’ll notice he buys a stock. Then, as if by magic, some giant merger or government contract comes through.
Surely, he can’t claim Nancy made all that dough. Not on a job that pays $175k to $225k a year. Together, the Pelosi’s are worth more than $120 MILLION.
The Writing on the Wall
McHenry knows the playbook Pelosi’s been operating under for years now. So why hasn’t he ever initiated an investigation into her personal finances? Her husband’s knack for guessing what’s coming next in the stock market? Even Martha Stewart was held accountable for that nonsense. Now are you starting to smell the rat?
