Flashback: Pelosi Caught Charging Air Force $185,000 to Fly Family & Dems to Europe

They think we won’t notice…

Nancy Pelosi and the mainstream media were up in arms after President Trump canceled the speaker’s trip abroad. Heck, a Pelosi spokesman even suggested that 45 put Pelosi’s life in danger because he announced that she’d have to fly private if she still wanted to go.

The California liberal must not have remembered that there’s a partial government shutdown taking place at the moment. If workers can’t get paid, Nancy shouldn’t be allowed to fly on the taxpayers’ dime. That should be common sense.

As it turns out, Pelosi has an extensive history of abusing military travel paid for by the American people. From Daily Caller:

Pelosi’s trip to Italy and Ukraine from July 30 to Aug. 6, 2015, cost the Air Force $184,587.81, according to documents released Saturday under a 2015 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit by Judicial Watch. Her delegation was made up of nine other members of Congress, including Democratic Reps. Anna Eshoo of California and Marcia Fudge of Ohio.

Four family members, including Pelosi’s husband Paul Pelosi, were on the trip. The delegation dined at restaurants including James Beard American Restaurant in Milan, where a five-course meal cost up to $190, according to Fine Dining Lovers. The lawmakers also toured the Vatican and met up with Italian dignitaries, including President Sergio Mattarella and then-Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, according to their itinerary.

More from Judicial Watch:

In response to a series of requests for military aircraft, one Defense Department official wrote, “Any chance of politely querying [Pelosi’s team] if they really intend to do all of these or are they just picking every weekend?…[T]here’s no need to block every weekend ‘just in case’…” The email also notes that Pelosi’s office had, “a history of canceling many of their past requests.”

One DOD official complained about the “hidden costs” associated with the speaker’s last minute changes and cancellations. “We have…folks prepping the jets and crews driving in (not a short drive for some), cooking meals and preflighting the jets etc.”

Top shelf liquor, huh?

Check out this video on Pelosi’s travel from 2009:

Drew Hammill, Pelosi’s deputy chief of staff, implies that President Trump is putting Pelosi and other Democrats in danger.

Hammill should apologize for being such a fear-mongering zealot.

LOOK:

Pelosi was planning to head to Belgium, Egypt, and Afghanistan on the taxpayers’ dime – as one does when elected to public office.

Her bags were all packed. She was ready to go.

Then, President Trump said no dice.

If Nancy wants to fly overseas to bash America she’ll have to fly private.

What happened next? Pelosi’s luggage was sent back to her office!

Famous Bounty Hunter Joins Search for Brian Laundrie in Florida

Laundrie has been evading police for days on end.

Published

on

The most wanted man in America may be hiding out in a Florida nature reserve, and police have spent several days scouring the vast wilderness looking for clues.

Brian Laundrie, a person of interest in the death of his fiancée Gabby Petito, disappeared from his parents’ home in North Port, Florida last week with no cell phone and no wallet.  The story was that he would be doing some hiking in the Carlton Reserve, but given the situation regarding Petito’s death, there is little doubt that Laundrie’s disappearance was purposeful.

Now, one of the nation’s most famous bounty hunters is on the case.

Dog the Bounty Hunter arrived at Brian Laundrie’s parents’ home Saturday, knocked on the door and met silence, but he’s already picked up a scent.

“The reason I went to Mr. [Christopher] Laundrie is I carry a reputation with me,” he told Fox News Digital moments later. “The reputation is, ‘He gives you a second chance. He’s gonna get you, but he gives you a second chance.’”

The reality TV star and legendary bounty hunter, whose real name is Duane Chapman, is a father of 13 who lost a daughter around the same age as Gabby Petito in a car accident in 2006. He was already in Florida on a honeymoon with his wife Francie Chapman, he said, when people began reaching out to him to look into Laundrie’s disappearance.

The television star was hoping for the best.

Laundrie’s parents reported him missing Friday, Sept. 17, telling police they hadn’t seen him in three days.

“And the dad can still reach out to me, through social media,” Chapman said. “Let’s get the kid captured alive. Alive.”

Laundrie has been charged with federal bank fraud after being found to have used Petito’s debit card after her death.

As Joe Biden Pushes Debunked ‘Whipping’ Story, Border Patrol Lashes Out

These agents were NOT happy.

Published

on

Last week, a number of disturbing images erupted at the southern border, that appeared to depict Border Patrol officer chasing migrants on horseback.

To make matters worse, the way in which the photos were presented seemed to suggest that these agents were using the reins of their mounts to “whip” the migrants, invoking imagery from a much darker time in America’s past.

Even President Joe Biden and the White House Press Secretary seemed perturbed by it, but there was one problem:  Border Patrol claims none of it is accurate.

On Friday, amid an ongoing investigation into the agents – who have now been shifted to desk duty – and a day after the Biden administration barred the use of horses in Del Rio, the president tore into those agents.

“To see people treated like they did, horses barely running over, people being strapped – it’s outrageous,” Biden said, making a whipping motion with his hand. “I promise you, those people will pay. There will be an investigation underway now and there will be consequences. There will be consequences.”

This didn’t sit well with agents, however.

Border Patrol agents were stunned and angered by the comments, which both claimed without evidence that migrants were run over and whipped, and at the same time cast a shadow over the investigation.

“Would you go to work and do your best knowing that if you do your boss is going to ‘make you pay’?” one agent told Fox News.  “I’m dumbfounded and don’t know what to say.”

The agent asked, “Is the president threatening to throw us in prison?”

Another said: “I see the administration wants to fry our agents. He just started a war with Border Patrol.”

Biden’s continued bungling of the border situation has been a key part of his flailing approval numbers of late, and this attempt to throw federal law enforcement under the bus certainly isn’t going to help either.
