Pelosi Blames the GOP for Crimea Annexation That Happened on Obama’s Watch

Everyday evidence emerges of Nancy Pelosi’s diminishing mental state. She is now blaming the GOP for Russia’s annexation of Crimea.

There is only one problem, when this happened, President Obama was the commander-in-chief.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) on Wednesday blamed Russia’s annexation of Crimea on Republicans, though the invasion took place on President Barack Obama’s watch.

Pelosi slammed President Donald Trump and Republicans for their alleged inability to face Russian aggression—and tied them to President Barack Obama’s appeasement of Moscow.

“You just described, not only for the president, but the Republicans in Congress, dereliction of duty,” Pelosi told MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace. “Undermining our own elections, undermining our commitment to NATO, giving away the store, the base, in Syria. The list goes on and on. Ignoring the annexation of Crimea, the invasion of eastern Ukraine. The list goes on and on.”

In 2014, the Obama administration took heat from Republicans for its failure to provide defense assistance to Ukraine when Russian president Vladimir Putin led a campaign to annex the Crimean peninsula. The Trump administration changed course on this policy, selling arms to Ukraine for its defense against Russia.

Pelosi’s statements come after reports surfaced that Russia was paying bounties for U.S. soldiers and President Trump not only knew about it but did nothing.

The problem becomes the fact that President Trump was never briefed because the intelligence was never confirmed.

  1. Like half of our sitting US Congress (and Joe Biden), many people have reached the age when they are no longer productive. Pelosi and Biden are both suffering from some form of mental dementia. The rest of their Party is now totally of the rails with their Socialist ideals. I can add some Republicans as well. Socialism can only work if the Political Elite are in power, thus the Socialists in Congress want to stay in power. It is not a matter of “for and by the people” it is a matter of staying elected. Those with their advanced age would have not gotten where they are today without the voters. There is a glaring reality about how we elect our Representative that needs to be addressed, but never will be addressed. It is term limits or age restrictions. These two realities will never be addressed because our US Congress would have to vote to change how we vote and this is body NEVER give up their job security. As long as politicians can be re-elected after there term is up they can die of old age in government service. Think about this! Our US President can only serve for eight years but Congresspersons and Supreme Justices can die in office. What is wrong with this picture? Our leadership can have mental dementia and remain in office. If Pelosi does not suffer from old age, then I must be a genius.

    1. Well said, Mr. Poe. Old Mafia Queen Bee Pelosi is well past her mental prime point if she was ever there. And you are indeed a genius with words for certain. Good posts and pertinent points covered always.

    2. She just accused Trump of a crime seen over by a Democrat President Obama was President when Russia annexed Crimea , seems like she has been in office to long loosing her mind.

  2. Speaking of blaming Trump for problems I am sickened to hear Obama’s voice talking about the unrest we have when he had Ferguson and Baltimore riots under his time along with the creation of BLM and then the police slaughtered in Dallas due to BLM. He also had how many Terrorist attacks that he called Work Place Violence?

    So I think Trump needs to feature all that in a video for a campaign and remind people why they nominated him instead of a Hillary double of Obama.

    1. Tiger, all I can do is as usual concur with your post. You always hit the nail on the head and in this case it is the hypocrisy and lying of BOZO.

      Just hearing his voice is an irritant. After eight long years of refusing to watch his lousy annual speeches and now knowing that my instincts were right about the lying imposter, just seeing his whiney ugly big eared face is repulsive and a reminder of how criminal the DNC insane asylum has become before and during his unlawful occupation of the White House. His records and those of old Joe are still sealed from the public or anyone. Now how telling is that?

      Thanks as always for the additional information on youtube. I always look at them. Have a great weekend.

  3. when will this woman Pelosi ever just keep her flaps shut?
    she has done nothing but yell,whine, everything under the sun
    it is time she is removed from her position
    the taxpayers gain nothing from her only to line her pockets
    California will be in a huge hurt again, again, again including others in the same boat until the people learn what it means to work together as a whole as a NATION
