    One of the week’s most popular … 

    Surge Summary: Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is proposing new congressional rules which would band certain normally non-objectionable words like “husband”, “wife” and “son” among other “gendered terms”. Meantime, another Congressman ended an opening congressional prayer with more semantic gibberish.

    The left’s insanity knows no bounds, and it has a firm grip over the Democrat Party.  According to new rules proposed by Speaker Nancy Pelosi, certain words will be banned in the House of Representatives.

    Of course, decorum and common decency prevents representatives from uttering certain objectionable words.  But most Americans would not consider Pelosi’s newly banned words “objectionable.”

    If Pelosi has her way, henceforth in the People’s House our representatives will no longer be able to say “husband,” “wife,” “son,” “daughter,” “he” or “she.”  Gendered terms are banned.

    I can’t wait for this year’s congressional resolution honoring Mother’s Day.  And can we still refer to “congressmen” or to Mrs. Pelosi as “Madame Speaker”?

    This is beyond absurd!  But it has been going on in schools for years, where many forms now read “parent one” and “parent two.”

    Dr. James Dobson and I have warned about the left’s effort to deconstruct gender and the family for years.  This assault on normalcy is a pathetic attempt to appease an extreme vocal minority.

    Demonstrating just how deep the left’s rot extends, Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, whose first name means “God is with us,” seems confused about a number of things.  His opening prayer of the new Congress suggested that all religions worship the same god.  One could write a whole book about that.

    But he concluded his prayer by saying “Amen and awoman.”

    This congressman apparently thinks “amen” is a gender specific term.  It has nothing to do with men or women.  It has similar meanings in Latin, Greek and Hebrew meaning “certainly” or “truly.”

    What does “awoman” mean?  Absolutely nothing!

    So, while you’re struggling to pay your bills or save your business, just know that progressive members of Congress, who haven’t missed one paycheck during the pandemic, are worshipping at the altar of left-wing insanity.

    Speaking of language, there’s a new mutation of the coronavirus making headlines.  It’s most often referred to as the “UK variant” of the virus.

    But I thought we weren’t supposed to name a virus’s country of origin because that would be racist.  After all, we’re not supposed to call COVID the “Chinese virus” or even the “Wuhan virus.”  So why are so many journalists referring to this new strain as the “UK variant”?
