Pelosi Caught Charging Air Force $185,000 to Fly Her Family and Dems to Europe

How will we be reimbursed, Nancy?

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 (more on that below).

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.

On Thursday, Trump sent a letter to Pelosi informing her that he cancelled her upcoming trip to Europe and the Middle East.

Trump told Pelosi that she could not use military aircraft — which are funded by taxpayers — but could still make the trip if she wanted to fly commercial on her own dime.

LOOK:

More:

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!

From Free Beacon:

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s luggage has been returned to the halls of congress by cart, according to a picture sent to the Washington Free Beacon by a snap-happy tipster.

WATCH:

The border wall is a “luxury” that America “can’t afford.”

Speaker Nancy Pelosi must really hate her country to say something this asinine.

Turning to the wall, Pelosi said, “It’s a luxury our country can’t afford under any circumstance. This is certainly a luxury we can’t afford when he has shut down government, takes pride in it and says months or years.”

Unlikely Reception to Sanders on Fox News Worthy of Full Page Ad?

Bernie’s Fox News town hall event smashed expectations, and was apparently worthy of a little gloating from the network.

Published

A peculiar thing occurred in American politics last week, but perhaps it shouldn’t be seen as such an outlier. In a move that shocked many, including President Trump, Bernie Sanders had an amicable and poignant “Presidential Town Hall” on Fox News.  Given the wild biases of the mainstream media, particularly when it comes to the far-left leaning democratic socialist from Vermont, many assumed that Sanders’ appearance on Fox would have been a bloodbath. Quite to the contrary, however, Sanders received a decidedly warm reception, even eliciting a hearty cheer from the crowd when explaining his “Medicare for all” wishes. Perhaps the nation truly is suffering from Obamacare in ways that many of us may have predicted. This sort of open-minded political positioning has become rare these days, thanks to the inflammatory practices of the mainstream media.  Fox’s gambling on Bernie paid off big-time, however, and the event has now received a full page advertisement in The Washington Post proclaiming its success. https://twitter.com/feliciasonmez/status/1118865630617395201 The numbers were simply incredible: The ad comes three days after nearly 2.6 million viewers tuned into Fox News’s town hall with Sanders on Monday night, making it the most-watched town hall of this campaign cycle so far, according to Nielsen Media Research. The live event, co-moderated by “Special Report” anchor Bret Baier and “The Story” anchor Martha MacCallum, also delivered 489,000 viewers in the 25- to 54-year-old age bracket that many advertisers cater to. Sanders, a self-described democratic socialist, provided Fox News with a considerable ratings bump compared to the same day last year. The network saw an increase of 24 percent in total viewers and 40 percent in the 25- to 54-year-old demographic. It certainly stands to reason that a great many of these viewers were tuning in in order to size up Sanders, who at…

MUST SEE: Barr Shreds Reporter In Half When She Implies He’s ‘Covering’ For Trump [Video]

Bill Barr has turned out to be everything President Trump wanted in an attorney general – and more. Former AG Jeff Sessions might’ve faired more favorably in 45’s eyes had he not recused himself from the Mueller investigation, but all of that is in the past. During his Thursday morning address to the media regarding the Mueller report, Barr shut down a reporter who implied he was “covering” for Trump. It was a total boss move. WATCH: https://twitter.com/dcexaminer/status/1118877097244733440?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1118877097244733440&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Filovemyfreedom.org%2Fwatch-ag-barr-rips-reporter-to-her-face-when-she-implies-hes-covering-for-trump%2F Barr consulted with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and both concluded there was zero evidence against Trump. WATCH: https://twitter.com/ArthurSchwartz/status/1118876301249720320?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1118876301249720320&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Filovemyfreedom.org%2Fwatch-ag-barr-rips-reporter-to-her-face-when-she-implies-hes-covering-for-trump%2F As expected, far-left radical Rep. Adam Schiff (CA) is not thrilled with Barr. From Fox News: Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., slammed Attorney General Bill Barr on Thursday, stopping just short of asking for his resignation after saying the redacted Mueller report showed Barr misled the American people with his summary report last month. The House Intelligence Committee chairman held a news conference just hours after the nearly 400-page redacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report was released to the public. Schiff claimed Barr “did a great disservice to the county by misrepresenting significant parts of the Mueller report, by attempting to put a positive spin for the president on the special counsel’s findings” last month. He added, “On the issue of obstruction of justice, the report outlines multiple attempts by the president to mislead the country, to interfere with the investigation, to make false statements to the American people and to urge others to lie to the American people… that these actions had a material impact on the investigation.” Schiff noted, “If the special counsel, as he made clear, had found evidence exonerating the president, he would have said so. He did not. He left that issue to the Congress of the…
