Who is going to emerge with the gavel after the meeting/wrestling match between AOC and Pelosi

Will they decide to share the title, Speaker of the House, and tag team Trump, or go to their own corners after the bell ?

To bad its not going to be on camera !!!
I would like to see what technique will be use to get one of them to tap out !!!
The rear naked choke hold or the more common arm bar are my top two picks !!!


AOC and Pelosi to meet, address House Dem infighting between far left, moderates

'The Squad' renews feud with Nancy Pelosi
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will meet Friday with far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in an effort to stop the recent infighting between the Democratic Party's progressive and moderate blocs in the lower chamber of Congress.

The Squad represents less than 1% of the House of Representatives. Beyond unlikely AOC would seek or be voted in as Speaker of the House, assuming Democrats continue to hold the majority.

Whether one likes her tactics and policies or not, Pelosi is a master politician for whom AOC is no match. AOC is a comparative amateur with an ego far beyond her abilities.

Pelosi will tell them to fall in line, but they've got big mouths and no filters or boundaries, so I doubt they'll be having it.

Imagine two adults with different view points sitting down to discuss their differences and try to come to some compromise in order to move forward.

WHAT a concept.

The Jihad Squad has tons of power. They are on TV daily spouting their nonsense, which is undermining Democrat efforts and empowering President Trump.

1. Pelosi is a highly medicated nut job who used to possess power and a reach far beyond my understanding. Now she's just taking up space.

2. AOC is not a comparative amateur - she's an extraordinary amateur. Who has been empowered and emboldened by the far-left group that recruited her and that currently pulls her strings. She has also been empowered by the media because she is ratings gold. And finally she has been empowered by the Democrat Party itself. Go back and find her Green New Deal announcement. Watch all the old white male politicians standing behind her. They had all held office for years if not decades, and they all stood behind this entitled child all robotically smiling and clapping like mindless seals - all the while knowing that she was laying out a complete bunch of garbage that would never, ever become policy. Ever. But she is a star. Because the party and the media turned her INTO a star, and these men stood behind her hoping upon hope that maybe...........just maybe...........some of the luster of this shiny new object would fall on them as well because they were standing on the same stage as the Great AOC. No shame. No dignity. No pride. Just extraordinarily pitiful.

3. The Democrat Party and Pelosi have all damaged themselves by allowing dirty laundry to be aired in public. Disagreements among party members is to be expected. Significant disagreement between members and the Speaker should be resolved behind closed doors. Always. And freshmen Congresswomen should be seen and not heard. They have been in office for five minutes. Shut up, be grateful for your place at the table, don't open your mouth until you've had a chance to even learn where the restrooms are located.

They have the ear of the MSM. They also seem to have the power to influence.
And they've been pretty loud about their progressive platform.

They have 5 more candidates for Congress lined up for 2020 and are actively seeking more.
They feel Congress is too White, too Rich, too male.

Progressives taking over the Dem party is like the frog in the pot.
Go ahead and laugh though because that's what they want you to do.
