I find the behavior of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to be unconscionable. Instead of strongly warning Communist China against abusing American athletes and citizens visiting or participating in the 2022 Olympics, the progressive communist democrat has warned Americans against speaking out about Communist China’s human rights abuses.  


“Do not risk incurring the anger of the Chinese government because they are ruthless.”

Transcript of Speaker Pelosi’s Remarks at Press Event Ahead of House Passage of America COMPETES Act of 2022

We salute President Biden for his great leadership. We salute the private sector for its job creation and working together. And – an adjustment from the month before which makes it seven – over 700,000 new jobs. So we’re very excited about that because this bill that we’re talking about today is a jobs bill, a jobs bill for manufacturing in America, making it in America.

And, I also just want to say that, coincidentally, the Olympics opened this morning in Beijing. I would wish our athletes well. We salute the President for the diplomatic boycott that has been joined by other countries and the approach that I support. I – as I say, as I wish the athletes well, I do not encourage them to speak out against the Chinese government there, because I fear for their safety if they do. I’ll remove all doubt about why I said they shouldn’t speak out: because I fear for their safety. So, I hope they’re safe athletically, politically and every other way.   <Source>

Bottom line…

While political statements at domestic and international sporting events should be discouraged, America should warn all nations against abusing American citizens. 

Let us not forget that President Biden abandoned Americans behind enemy lines in Afghanistan and re-armed our mortal enemies with sophisticated military weaponry, some of which made its way to our other adversaries for dissection and re-engineering. A historic loss of incalculable proportions – all for a photo-op and campaign boost.

As for Pelosi and her family, profiting from her political influence – especially in China – her family is as complicit as Biden’s and Senate Minority Leader McConnell’s family.

We are so screwed when American politicians refuse to protect American citizens.

At the very least, we could have threatened to remove every Chinese student studying mathematics, engineering, physics, chemistry, medicine, and other critical subjects in American universities by revoking their Visas.
