DON’T FORGET…

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!

Ilhan Omar’s Housing Plan Costs $1 Trillion; Includes Provisions For Undocumented Immigrants

Published

on

Controversial Congresswoman Ilhan Omar announced her affordable housing program, which will cost $1 trillion, revealing that it includes provisions for illegal immigrants. Omar revealed the “Homes for All Act” on Thursday, which would go hand-in-hand with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal by creating 12 million housing units by ensuring they were all built to the highest environmental standards. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: In her announcement, Omar, 38, explained that her affordable housing plan would ensure that no one is denied access to public housing, no matter their gender identity, race, sexuality, or immigration status. https://twitter.com/Ilhan/status/1197515008982310912 “We will prohibit any discrimination against residents based on sexual orientation, gender, criminal history or immigration status,” Omar explained, later adding, “Doing the Homes for All really gets us closer to having the America I imagined be realized and I’m really excited for the opportunity to now be in a position of influence to get that done.” This would break from the Trump administration’s affordable housing policies. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson announced in May that undocumented families would be denied taxpayer-funded housing in order to make room for citizens in need of public housing. Omar, who first arrived in America at the age of 12 as a refugee, has noted that the sight of folks living on the streets had a profound impact when she came to this country. Ever since, she has vowed to fight for making housing a human right. https://twitter.com/IlhanMN/status/1197530827741110272 Omar did not provide any information on how the program would be funded.

DNA Test Results Reveal Hunter Biden Is Father Of Arkansas Woman’s Child

Published

on

DNA tests results have “established with scientific certainty” that Hunter Biden, son of former Vice President Joe Biden, is the father of an Arkansas woman’s baby. The woman filed a motion on Wednesday concerning the DNA results. The filing says Biden is “not expected to challenge the results of the DNA test or the testing process.” Here’s more from CNN: Hunter Biden had denied in a previous court filing that he had fathered the child, but agreed in October to a paternity test. Neither Joe Biden’s campaign nor an attorney for Hunter Biden immediately responded to requests for comment. It’s the latest development to thrust the former vice president’s son into the spotlight as Joe Biden seeks the Democratic 2020 presidential nomination. The news came just hours before 10 Democratic contenders met in Atlanta for a debate. Hunter Biden has been the subject of scrutiny in recent months over his business dealings in Ukraine. President Donald Trump’s efforts to convince Ukraine’s President to investigate the company that had reportedly paid Biden as much as $50,000 per month to sit on its board is the subject of the House’s impeachment probe. There is no evidence of wrongdoing on the part of either Biden in Ukraine. Lunden Alexis Roberts, 28, filed the lawsuit back in May asking for child support and health care for the baby, who was born in August of 2018. Roberts’ legal team’s latest filings say that Biden’s family members are eligible for protection by the Secret Service. Roberts petitioned the court to seal any information concerning the identity of the child.
