BREAKING: Nancy Pelosi Replacement Announcement - Whoaaa

August 1, 2022

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's planned trip to Taiwan next month is causing quite the stir and even drawing threats from the Chinese Communist leaders, but many see it as a bluff from the Chinese to exercise power over America and prove weakness.

"I’m not in the habit of saying that Nancy Pelosi is right. But if she wants to visit Taiwan next month as part of a congressional delegation to several countries in the Indo-Pacific, she really ought to go. Canceling the trip now would be a capitulation to tyranny," wrote The Washington Free Beacon.

"Canceling now would mean that Congress buckled in the face of Chinese threats and the Biden administration wavering," wrote the Free Beacon. "It would establish the principle that Beijing has veto power over the travel plans of senior U.S. officials. It would tell the world that America is more interested in mollifying Xi Jinping than in supporting the democratically elected Tsai Ing-wen."

"It would be another example of self-deterrence, Biden-style. And America would be weakened," The Free Beacon reported.

"Pelosi would be the first speaker of the House to visit Taiwan since Newt Gingrich in 1997. The Chinese Communist Party was no happier 25 years ago than they are today. Back then, the People’s Republic said that Gingrich’s support of Taiwan was 'improper' and 'contradictory.' China’s rhetoric has grown harsher as it has grown stronger. Earlier this year, when Pelosi first scheduled a visit in April, a Chinese government spokesman called it a 'malicious provocation.' He pledged that China would respond 'resolutely.' Then Pelosi got COVID. She had to cancel," reported The Free Beacon.

"Those who play with fire will perish by it," Xi told Biden.

"It’s a line Xi has used before. But who is playing with fire here? Pelosi, by following a precedent set by Newt Gingrich a quarter century ago? Or China, by trying to steamroll the speaker of the House? U.S. foreign policy works best when America acts boldly to create facts on the ground favorable to freedom. Which is why I am about to commit to print words I never thought I’d write: Go, Nancy, go!" wrote The Free Beacon.
