Pelosi’s Due Process Concerns for Conyers Don’t Extend to Gun Owners

Does anyone think these two are concerned about due process for gun owners when dreaming up new prior restraints on the right to keep and bear arms? (Nancy Pelosi/John Conyers – Facebook)

USA – -(Ammoland.com)- House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi urged “due process” for sexual abuse allegations against Rep. John Conyers during an appearance on “Meet the Press,” NBC News reported Sunday.

“John Conyers is an icon in our country. He has done a great deal to protect women [with the] Violence against Women Act,” Pelosi argued. She was warning against drawing conclusions until all facts are known. “We are strengthened by due process. Just because someone is accused — and was it one accusation? Is it two?”

Pelosi’s first assertion about the old collectivist being an icon is debatable. But she’s absolutely right to call for full due process before deciding accusations are true. And she’s absolutely inconsistent and hypocritical in defending Democrat Conyers, Al Franken and Bill Clinton while calling Republican Roy Moore “a child molester.”

Incidentally, during the interview she repeated the lie that the Clinton impeachment was just about sex. The president had committed perjury in a legal case to deny justice to a woman, Paula Jones, who claimed he had sexually harassed her.

Pelosi also has no problem ignoring due process when it comes to enacting citizen disarmament edicts. Case in point, she’s a big supporter of so-called ”No Fly/No Buy” to deny guns to Americans who have not even been charged with a crime, let alone convicted of one. And unsurprisingly to those who have come to expect nothing but illogic and lies from her, she claims that does not have “anything to do with the Second Amendment. I think it has everything to do with our oath of office…”

“Legal” weasel-wording notwithstanding, all infringements that deny people their right to keep and bear arms are due process violations. And Conyers joins Pelosi in being a prime denier.

Curiously, in 2014 it was a reported the Conyers campaign had hired a convicted home invader with an outstanding assault warrant to collect petitions to get the congressman’s name on the ballot. And in a life-imitates-art reenactment of the old “Take my wife, please” gag, we mustn’t forget how Monica Conyers threatened to shoot an aide to then-Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick (before the anti-gun Kilpatrick’s own felony conviction). That was after she got into a bar fight but before she became a prohibited person for taking bribes.

Unsurprisingly, it looks like all Pelosi’s talk about “due process” was just window dressing, and she’s really just trying to figure the best way to throw him under the bus without enraging his constituents and the Congressional Black Caucus.

Ordinary Americans see things in the news like a secret slush fund to finance settlements for lawmakers accused of sexual harassment and shake their heads in disgust. It’s a pretty natural reaction to wonder why people who can’t – or more likely won’t – control themselves are so bent on controlling us.

    1. Of course she is going to do this they are Repub. not Dems. She is nothing more than a idiot and needs to go for the sake of this country.

    2. Nancy Pelosi is senile, acts like she’s on meds, and I don’t mean lightweight drugs. I doubt if she even knows what she’s saying, since it’s the same 10 things over and over. Frankly, I hate her, along with the Dirty Dozen Democratic scumbags she associates with. You can fill in those names as you please, because there are far more than a dozen of them inthis pack of jackals called Congress.

    3. This whole sex assault escapade by the left is just another ploy to pressure Roy Moore out of the race and turn the voters against him. I predict ; as soon as the Dec. 12 election is over and Moore gets defeated the Demoncrates will just shrug their shoulders and say, ” Oh Well, Never Mind”. Harvey SwineWine will get his job back along with all the other ScapGoats the were used as stage props. And Washington will go on its merry way toward an Apocalypse of Corruption.

      1. The allegations against Roy Moore were from two women, one of which has already been proven a liar for forging his statement in her year book. The other one is questionable as well. So as of now, there is NO credible allegations against him. Meanwhile, the leftist politicians and news anchors and actors are dropping like dominos, many from multiple credible witnesses. Also, I believe Judge Roy Moore will win the special election, dealing another blow to the lying left.

    4. The hypocrisy of the left is on full display now. Where was Pelosi’s concern for “due process” when Judge Roy Moore was accused or when Donald Trump was accused. But now that dozens of leftist politicians, media pundits, and Hollyweird millionaires are being accused, it’s a different story. As usual, the left accuses those on the right of the crimes they are guilty of.

    5. This “LibTurd” is clearly suffering from dementia. She can’t even make a speech without stumbling and slurring the words. I think Johnny and Nancy would make a great married couple.

      1. If I talked like her after being pulled over by an officer I’d be in cuffs & hauled away for DUI without being tested or drinking for that matter.

        1. @WB…can’t find your full comment. Would wager she can’t remember the last time anyone even touched her , in less she has some little swishey kept boy on her staff.

    6. Turns out that the libtard socialists were just saying words to get power. They did not really believe or live by their words. I am shocked, just shocked to see that lying is going on, here.
