Pelosi: "The Enemy Is Within The House"

Drawing from the words of Rome's Cicero, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi says the enemy is not merely within the gates of the city, the enemy is in fact within the House---the US House of Representatives.

And she identifies the "enemy."

If you're a Christian, take a deep breath, but read on.

Be informed, not misled.

People with differing political views are among the enemy within the House. 

At last Thursday's news conference, she described the enemy as being "within the House of Representatives" as well as outside its walls.

She introduced the man---General Honore--- who she's looking to provide adequate protection for the House of Representatives.

She said, "Today when meeting with General Honore, he is looking at members here and at home and in between"---whatever that actually means.

Continuing, she said:

"So we want to have a scientific approach to how we protect members. I do believe and I  have said this all along, that we'll probably need a supplemental for more security for members when the enemy is withing the House of Representatives. A threat that members are concerned about, in addition to what is happening outside."

A reporter dared ask, "What exactly did you mean that the enemy is within?"

She explained, "We have members of Congress who want to bring guns on the floor and have threatened violence on other members of Congress."

You will recall that all who questioned the integrity of the 2020 presidential election are now being targeted.

People of faith are among the enemies because "they don't believe in science."

On Monday, House Speaker Pelosi, while taking a shot at Trump on the House floor, suggested that "faith orientated" people working in Washington are to blame for stalling a COVID-19 emergency aid package because they don't believe in science.

Pelosi explained that legislation could not be passed "until now" because the administration "did not believe in testing, tracing, treatment, wearing masks, sanitation, separation, and the rest---scientific approach."

"It becomes clear to us now that they believed in herd immunity---quackery springing right from the Oval Office and not denied sufficiently by some at the CDC and the rest," she said.

She blamed Trump for the "denial, the delay, the distortion, the calling it a hoax has caused hundreds of thousands of deaths, not all of them attributed to President Trump, but "most of them that could have been avoided." 

But now, she notes, because of  "faith orientation" many people are refusing to take the vaccine and becoming another enemy within: "So now we have a vaccine, and that gives us hope. People say around here sometimes, 'I'm faith-oriented, so I  don't  believe in science..."

Pelosi's remark is familiar as the Left often accuse conservatives and people of faith of "denying science" for questioning their narratives on a host of issues, such as climate change and the efficacy of mask mandates.

Two categories of Christians in the culture: "Devout" or "Extreme" Biden or Barrett.

The most recent confirmation to the Supreme Court is an example of how the press and the politicians categorize "Christians."

Major media outlets and reporters celebrated President Joe Biden's Catholicism though he embraces policies explicitly opposed to catholic teaching but criticized the Catholicism of Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett.

Major media operations were suggesting that Barrett's Catholicism was linked to extreme and cultish behavior. Yet most of the media also celebrates Biden's Catholicism as "devout" without noting the significance of his divergence from Catholic teaching on subjects like abortion, marriage, and family.

Following the election, the New York Times proclaimed that "President Biden is perhaps the most religiously observant commander in chief in half a century," defining his observant devotion as "A different, more liberal Christianity that grounds his life and his politics."

Barrett, also a Catholic, has been consistently attacked for her faith since her name was first floated by President Trump in 2017. Democrats, media outlets, and activists fixated on her adherence to Catholic principles and her large family, suggesting that she was "extreme" and unfit to serve on the Supreme Court.

You will remember California Senator Dianne Feinstein told Barrett during her 2017 confirmation hearings, "The conclusion one draws is that the dogma lives loudly within you," and that was "of concern."


Religious freedom is being redefined as one being free to "worship" as one pleases as long as their beliefs are not contrary to an "evolving, progressive, relativistic world view."

Biden is a "devout" Catholic because while claiming to be "devout," he is an activist for abortion, the LGBTQ+ agenda, and the abolition of many of America's founding principles which were based in Scripture.

Barrett is not acceptable in the culture because she actually believes and lives out her faith---which suggests she is cult-like in her faith.

Religious faith is under attack in America and it can be very discouraging.

But remember that this is a spiritual battle. Paul wrote, 

"For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this age, against spiritual  hosts  of wickedness in heavenly places" (Eph. 6:12).

Be Informed. Be Discerning. Be Vigilant. Be Prayerful.
