Pelosi just received a brutal wake-up call.
In a letter sent to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, the House Freedom Caucus requests to remove House Speaker Nancy Pelosi from her position as Speaker.
The letter says they “respectfully request that you pursue the authorization of the House Republican Conference, pursuant to Conference rules, to file and bring up a privileged motion by July 31, 2021, to vacate the chair and end Nancy Pelosi’s authoritarian reign as Speaker of the House.”
It continues, “Rule IX, Clause 3 of the Rules of the House of Representatives for the One Hundred Seventeenth Congress requires that ‘A resolution causing a vacancy in the Office of Speaker shall not be privileged except if offered by direction of a party caucus or conference’.”
More from Daily Wire:
The move is the most recent development in a series of actions taken by members of both parties over the past week with regard to the formation of the January 6 Select Committee…
The group argued that “Pelosi’s tenure is destroying the House of Representatives and our ability to faithfully represent the people we are here to serve.” They also pointed to measures taken by Pelosi like “allowing proxy voting and insulting security measures like metal detectors for Members coming to the floor to vote.”
The group brought up Pelosi’s actions earlier in the week, noting that her “refusal to seat Rep. Jim Jordan and Rep. Jim Banks on the Select Committee to Investigate January 6 is intolerable.”
As The Daily Wire reported on Thursday, Pelosi said her January 6 Select Committee will proceed despite what she labeled as Republican “antics” — a reference to McCarthy’s decision to pull GOP participation from the committee after she refused to seat two of his five picks.
TRENDING 👇 Cleveland Indians Announce New Politically Correct Name
The Cleveland Indians have been canceled.
The name they’ve had since 1915 is gone. Now they will be called the “Cleveland Guardians,” presumably to be less offensive.
Far left-wing actor Tom Hanks delivered the news by narrating a video as part of the team’s announcement. Here’s their new logo:

Hanks said, “And now it’s time to unite as one family, one community to build the next era for this team and this city, to keep watch and guard what makes this game the greatest, to come together and welcome all who want to join us. We are loyal and proud and resilient,” Hanks continued. “We protect what we earned and always defend it. Together we stand with all who understand what it means to be born and built from the Land.”
The satirical site, Babylon Bee, joked about the team’s new name and attempt not to offend anyone:

… angry that you’re changing the name of a team due to woke-ness.
