The corporate media claims Nancy Pelosi never comes out on the losing end of a fight.
However, in the case of one bitter rivalry that is not true.
But Nancy Pelosi admitted defeat to the last person she ever wanted to lose to.
Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats were in a jam.
Pelosi needed to pass a bill to fund the government and raise the debt ceiling along party line votes because Republicans would not provide any help in funding Joe Biden’s socialist agenda.
But to get the legislation out of the House, Pelosi can only afford to lose five votes.
So when Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar and the rest of the “Squad” presented Pelosi with an ultimatum, the speaker of the House had to give in.
Ocasio-Cortez and the rest of the anti-Semitic left demanded Pelosi yank one billion dollars in funding for Israel’s Iron Dome – the missile shield that protects Israel from rockets fired by the terrorist group Hamas.
Republicans slammed Pelosi for caving into anti-Semitic socialists that put innocent lives at risk by helping an Islamic terrorist organization make it easier to fire rockets into Israel.
“Once again, the radical left shows their blatant disregard for supporting our ally Israel and Israel’s right to defend itself against Hamas terrorists,” Tennessee Senator Marsha Blackburn wrote.
“@SpeakerPelosi & House DEMS have PULLED for Israel’s Iron Dome after pushback from radical leftists like @AOC, @Ilhan, & @RashidaTlaib.This will put Israel in danger & will further embolden countries that wish to see Israel wiped off the face of the Earth,” Florida Congressman Byron Donalds posted on social media.
“Tragic. Dem leadership surrenders to the anti-Semitic Left. They hate Israel so much that Dems are stripping $1 BILLION in funding for Iron Dome—a purely defensive system that protects countless innocent civilians from Hamas rockets,” Texas Senator Ted Cruz posted on Twitter.
“Will any Dems have the courage to denounce?” Cruz posted.
Ocasio-Cortez and Pelosi were rivals from the start.
Pelosi agreed to serve two terms as speaker after the Democrats won the House of Representatives in the 2018 midterms as a compromise to win the votes of Ocasio-Cortez and other leftists in the January 2019 election for speaker of the House.
Ocasio-Cortez then pushed Democrats to adopt unpopular left-wing policies like defunding the police that cost Democrats seats in the 2020 election.
The last thing in the world Nancy Pelosi wants to do is hand Ocasio-Cortez and her allies even a symbolic victory – the money will be restored in the 2022 defense bill – because it will embolden Ocasio-Cortez and her fellow “Squad” members to vote down a $1.2 trillion fake infrastructure bill since there is no way Pelosi can make good on her word to pass on a $3.5 trillion Green New Deal and socialist welfare spending bill by the September 27 deadline Pelosi initially set.
