Crazy Nancy’s reign as Speaker of the House appears to be coming to an end.
Despite the fact the Democrats retain a SLIGHT majority in the House, there are reports that multiple Democrats are attempting to oust Speaker Pelosi.
That’s right: this would be a bipartisan coup to deny Nancy another term as House Speaker.
That’s gotta hurt!
A “veteran senior congressional aide” has reported that at least 10 Democrats have met with Republicans in private.
They are allegedly discussing strategies to make sure Nancy doesn’t win the House speakership for yet another turn.
2021 will give us many gifts. Here are a few:
Trump’s 2nd term. Nancy Pelosi dethroned. John Roberts removed from Supreme Court. Gavin Newsom recalled. And much, much more. Stay tuned….

Apparently, no one has denied the story when asked for comment.
American Thinker has more details on what is being described by some as a “bipartisan coup”:
Mark Tapscott has a source on Capitol Hill who is telling him that a bipartisan coup to throw Nancy Pelosi out of the speaker’s grand office — the nicest in the Capitol — is being plotted in secret. Writing in The Epoch Times, he informs us:
Meetings are being held among House Republicans and 10 Democrats who voted against Pelosi becoming speaker in 2019.
“A serious effort is underway to prevent Pelosi from becoming speaker, backed by the GOP and Democrats who are disturbed by their party’s embrace of extreme rhetoric and policies like ‘defund the police,'” The Epoch Times was told on Dec. 30 by a veteran senior congressional aide who advises multiple members of Congress.
“The odds of success are less than 50-50, but it’s one of the more intriguing leadership challenges to emerge in recent decades,” said the aide, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
Intriguingly, there are no denials:
Spokesmen for Pelosi and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) didn’t respond to The Epoch Times’ request for comment.
Pelosi has claimed that she has the job wrapped up for the 117th Congress. The AP cheerleads:
There’s little doubt that Nancy Pelosi will be reelected House speaker when the new Congress convenes Sunday. It could take a high-wire act for her to get there, largely thanks to the pandemic.
The only woman in history to serve as speaker, the California Democrat has a reputation as a formidable vote-counter and wily deal-cutter. Those skills have helped her fend off threats and cement her as leader of her party in the House since 2003, and seem likely to carry the day on Jan. 3, when the Constitution requires the new Congress to begin.
“Yeah, I do,” Pelosi told a reporter this week when asked if she had the votes wrapped up.
In what seemed an indication of confidence, Pelosi told reporters Wednesday that Rep.-elect Mariannette Miller-Meeks, R-Iowa, will be sworn in, even as Democratic opponent Rita Hart’s challenge to the election results remains under review by the House. Miller-Meeks is certain to vote against Pelosi to be speaker.
Tapscott names the Dems in the discussions, lending credibility to his report (unless they object):
The 10 Democrats include Reps. Abigail Spanberger of Virginia, Elissa Slotkin of Michigan, Mikie Sherrill of New Jersey, Kurt Schrader of Oregon, Kathleen Rice of New York, Conor Lamb of Pennsylvania, Ron Kind of Wisconsin, Jared Golden of Maine, Jason Crow of Colorado, and Jim Cooper of Tennessee.
Despite the plots against her, Nancy is known for her many surprises.
She has a reputation of being sneaky, cutthroat, and unafraid to use her own bully pulpit to get her way.
Will enough Democrats finally stand up against her to dethrone the Speaker of the House?
What do you think?
Can Speaker Pelosi survive this “bipartisan coup?”
Or will a new Speaker emerge from the ashes?
Time will soon tell!
15 Democrats voted against Nancy Pelosi for Speaker last time. 10 of them are coming back. If those 10 Democrats vote against her again—she will no longer be Speaker of the House. pic.twitter.com/1AVVhV6eBR
