    Surge Summary: In their heedless attempts to wreak revenge on Donald Trump, the Left and Democrats are willing to do just about anything. Exhibit A: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s efforts to undercut the Commander-in-Chief’s ability to defend America.

    By Gary Bauer

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi usurped her constitutional authority today by attempting to deny the president of the United States the ability to defend this country.

    Various news outlets report that Pelosi spoke to General Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, demanding that he prevent Trump from “initiating military hostilities or accessing the launch codes and ordering a nuclear strike.”

    The reports are based on a letter from Pelosi to various Democrat lawmakers in which she describes the president as “unhinged” and “unstable,” and repeated her threat to impeach him.

    To be clear, the president is the commander-in-chief, and he, not the Speaker of the House, is responsible for defending this country.

    It is incredibly foolish of Pelosi to assume that no foreign adversary would attempt to attack us or threaten our interests during a presidential transition of power.  It is at precisely such a time when our enemies are likely to assume we are the most vulnerable.

    More importantly, I believe Pelosi’s actions further underscore the extent to which the left is prepared to go in order to destroy Donald Trump and everyone around him.  They never want to see another coalition of working-class Americans and Christian conservatives governing this country again.

    I know many of you are discouraged.  But I am urging you to pick yourselves up from the mat and find your courage in God.  We must fight back and work harder than ever before!  I know I am going to do that.
