The federal government can waste taxpayer money like nobody’s business.

Millions on this, millions on that. No accountability?

No problem.

From Free Beacon:

Federal agencies billed taxpayers millions for lobster tail, alcohol, standing desks, golf carts, and more frivolous expenditures before budgets ran out at the end of the fiscal year.

A new analysis released by OpenTheBooks.com found 66 agencies spent $97 billion last September, the final month of fiscal year 2018. The end of the year taxpayer-funded spending spree included contracts with Coors, millions on iPhones, furniture, and CrossFit equipment.

Continued:

Resulting government expenditures included $4.6 million on lobster tail and crab; $673,471 on golf carts; $1.7 million on pianos, tubas, and trombones; $9.8 million on workout and recreation equipment; and $7.7 million iPhones and iPads.

[…]

The federal government spent $2.1 million on games, toys, and wheeled goods, $490.6 million on furniture, and $62.1 million on household furnishings. Bureaucrats spent $1.1 million on standing desks, as well as $2.7 million on ergonomic chairs, $643,833 on sofas, and $40,379 on clocks.

While speaking before reporters about the second Trump/Kim summit, Speaker Pelosi pronounced the word “denuclearization” as “denuclearation.”

No ‘z,’ Nancy?

Eesh.

But there are even more Pelosi brain-freezes in the video below…

The President is returning from […] Vietnam with his meeting with Kim Jong Un. I guess it took two meetings for him to realize that Kim Jong Un is not on the level — he was the big winner, Kim Jong Un in getting to sit face-to-face with the most powerful person in the world — the President of the United States. And really it’s good that the President did not give him anything…

WATCH:

Pelosi has been known for suffering brain freezes in the past.

If it happens one, two times, no big deal. That’s life.

The thing is, Pelosi is constantly caught slurring her words and messing up routine gestures.

This clip below is no different.

As the House Speaker gave her weekly brief press conference, she could be seen suffering brain freezes, confusing millions and billions, and at one point, caught herself holding up only five fingers while talking about six bills.

[…]

“We’ve already had a committee, uh, uh, uh, committees, the, uh— Ways and Means Committee and the Oversight Committee— Government Reform and Oversight Committee,” she struggled to say.

WATCH:

Yikes. Maybe English isn’t her first language?

Here’s another recent Pelosi episode…

We um…As you are aware, uh, we have— we are diligent, diligent and persistent…

We you want to detect drugs, as we all do, then there is, uh, uh, uh— technology that can scan…

…Beef up the ports of entry to do that, but there’s no reason, the wall in my view is an immorality.

WATCH:

Here’s more of Pelosi stuttering from not long ago…

Pelosi: “And they’re here now, in what is one of the most tranformative, new members of— body of members of Congress.

Pelosi: “We will— we will win 40, uh, we will win 4— we will have, take, win 40 seats.

Pelosi: “The Special Counsel cannot be fired without cause. He, he or she would be granted a three-judge appeal panel if fired, uh, could only be removed by a Senate-confirmed AG— replaced by a Se— uh, Senate-confirmed Attorney General.”

PHOTOS: Democrat Lawmaker Simulates Assassination of Trump During Political Fundraiser

Imagine if the roles were reversed.

Why are Democrats still allowed to say they accept everyone? Even they know that that isn’t true. Unless you agree with the far-left 100% of the time, you’re not welcome to so much as give an opinion. Check out a Democrat state lawmaker simulating the assassination of President Trump during a recent fundraiser. Replace “Democrat” with Republican and “Trump” with Obama and imagine the outrage. A political fundraiser for @SenatorSandoval simulates an assassination attempt against a mock @realDonaldTrump decked out in Mexican garb. Looks like a man pointed a fake assault weapon at the fake President to pose for a picture. https://twitter.com/MarkMaxwellTV/status/1162782536248057856?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1162782536248057856&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2019%2F08%2Fpolitical-fundraiser-for-illinois-democrat-state-lawmaker-simulates-assassination-attempt-of-president-trump%2F Reactions: Now @DemsforIllinois responds: “The tragedies in El Paso and Gilroy have demonstrated how hate-filled political rhetoric can fuel violence. These images are unacceptable and dangerous. The place to make our voices heard against Trump is at the ballot box.” https://twitter.com/MarkMaxwellTV/status/1163144306577870848?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1163144306577870848&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fgregp-3534%2F2019%2F08%2F18%2Fno-big-deal-just-a-simulated-assassination-of-president-trump-at-a-fundraiser-for-an-illinois-dem%2F From @GovPritzker: “As our nation grapples with the epidemic of gun violence, purposely pointing a fake gun at anyone is insensitive and wrong. I condemn actions like the ones displayed in the pictures because they lack the civility our politics demands.” https://twitter.com/MarkMaxwellTV/status/1162867673442766853?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1162867673442766853&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fgregp-3534%2F2019%2F08%2F18%2Fno-big-deal-just-a-simulated-assassination-of-president-trump-at-a-fundraiser-for-an-illinois-dem%2F The guy later apologized… Response from @SenatorSandoval: “The incident that took place is unacceptable.

I apologize that something like this happened at my event.” https://twitter.com/MarkMaxwellTV/status/1162974105265741824?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1162974105265741824&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2019%2F08%2Fpolitical-fundraiser-for-illinois-democrat-state-lawmaker-simulates-assassination-attempt-of-president-trump%2F Sandoval wants to double the gas tax in Illinois. In other words, Dandoval is a good Democrat. From Fox2Now: Illinois lawmakers want to jack up the gasoline tax. Legislation has been introduced in Springfield that would double the tax and use the revenue for major road and bridge improvements across the state. Lawmakers are trying to find ways to pay for badly needed infrastructure improvements. State Senators Don DeWitte (R-33rd District) and Martin Sandoval (D-11th District) want to more than…

It takes a very special person to be a member of Antifa – or a Democrat, in general. You literally have to hate your country while at the same time remain ignorant as to have good you have it here in the states. Quite the combo. Check out what some radical liberal goons were up to in Portland this past weekend… Antifa attacks people on a bus. They try to pull them out and hit them with a hammer. #PortlandProtests https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1162833952190582785?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1162833952190582785&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F08%2F17%2Fantifail-antifa-protester-loses-fight-with-bus-plus-bonus-gif-another-tries-really-hard-to-tear-up-a-maga-hat%2F Check out what happens when one goofball chases after a bus… When the buses left, antifa chased it down and broke windows.

Remember this…?? From Daily Caller: Former Vice President Joe Biden endorsed Antifa in a video announcing his presidential bid Thursday, characterizing the group as “courageous” and saying it’s wrong to draw a moral equivalence between white nationalist groups and those opposing them. The violent methods of Antifa are well documented. The nebulous group often uses these violent means against peaceful conservative speakers, benign free speech advocates, and even journalists. In a retelling of the events at a 2017 white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va., Biden describes the white nationalists as having…
