Good on her, going to everywhere, were she is being welcomed, even if some dubious 3rd party is shouting and swearing!

I love letting my brain wander. Follow me here, did anyone else hear/read about the possible chip shortage in Taiwan and it's very interesting the House Speaker visits there first. I'm only saying that whatever talks happen I know chips will be a top priority. I'm sure other things are at play but I'm looking at that story only. Maybe there's a distribution problem or something more going on with chip production? Anyways, read the news then watch politics I think it's cool seeing how those two play out. :-)

tom hook August 2, 2022 - 11:25 PM

Pelosi is the role model for America. The US government should quickly recognize the independent of Taiwan. China is paper tiger, completely useless and helpless

I remember when the United States in my state produced semiconductor chips. Now it's all overseas. I wonder why we don't have jobs here in America anymore? 🤔

Good job Spaeaker Pelosi, you my girls.firm articulate and discipline leader. I love you

New Name August 2, 2022 - 11:26 PM

What a refreshing change for the Democrat demons… They actually sent in Pelosi to spark a war instead of the CIA to fake an uprising.

Joseph Eyes August 2, 2022 - 11:27 PM

Never test the capability of the US military.

Artem Pushkin August 2, 2022 - 11:27 PM

So, someone lied as always? Copy/paste country just talking

Gregory Fuzi August 2, 2022 - 11:29 PM

You mean China was blowing a lot of hot air. I think China need to calm down after the pandemic they put forth on the Earth. And now all of a sudden there's cases of monkeypox running around the world rampant. We were warned by our fearless leader in the United States. There's going to be another pandemic. Wonder what else they have in store for us.

Hayz August 2, 2022 - 11:30 PM

We can’t let the dictator of the Chinese communist party take over Taiwan. Good job speaker Pelosi. 🇹🇼🇹🇼

Go Taiwan! China just wants to crush computer chip competitors — being a playground bully.

Pelosi Power

Kairos Global Revival August 2, 2022 - 11:37 PM

The truth is Nancy Pelosi is not doing this for Taiwan but for her own political agenda, her democratic party has been losing support back home, so she is trying to pull this stunt to show Americans that the democratic party can still do something great. All this are just dirty political crap !

Tyler Crestron August 2, 2022 - 11:38 PM

Ah yes, can't wait to see what happens next thanks to the useless democratic party and their stupidity.
