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.”

Donald Trump Is Already ‘Planning for the Next Administration’ — VIDEO

2024 will be here before you know it…

If Donald Trump again runs for president in 2024 AND if he becomes the Republican Party nominee, you’d have to imagine there’s little chance he would “lose” an election twice in a row. If Trump becomes president on January 20, 2025, who comes with him as a member of his cabinet? Pompeo, most likely. Carson would be probable. But you’d have to think Haley, Pence, and a few other big names from the first term wouldn’t even get a phone call. Appearing on Hannity on Friday night, Mark Meadows, former Congressman and chief of staff, dropped a bomb. Meadows said, “What we will see on Sunday is we will see the start of planning for the next administration. And I can tell you, the people that are at the top of that list, all of them have Trump as their last name.” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FaSCFIcgR7M&feature=emb_title And here’s your daily dose of random noise from Twitter… https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1365477701767823361 https://twitter.com/trscoop/status/1365479675506659332 https://twitter.com/realDailyWire/status/1365486571978301442 https://twitter.com/TMZ/status/1365496943225556994

Trump to Start New Political Action Committee — Corey Lewandowski to Head It Up

He’s still top dog!

The world has long been waiting to see what’s next for Donald Trump. The former President has been largely laying low down at Mar-a-Lago these past few weeks, with only a few quick statements having been disseminated by those around him. His Twitter account remains suspended, which could be one reason for the lack of controversy he’s spawned these days. Now, with a major CPAC speech leering imminently over the horizon, The Don is making some moves. From Fox News: Former President Trump is starting up a new political action committee and is eyeing longtime top political adviser and aide Corey Lewandowski to head up the new super PAC, multiple people with knowledge of the conversations confirmed to Fox News. The move was decided during a meeting late last week at Trump’s south Florida residence at Mar-a-Lago when the former president gathered with his political team. The group included 2020 campaign managers Bill Stepien and Brad Parscale, senior adviser Jason Miller, former White House social media director Dan Scavino, and Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr. CONTINUED: Sources familiar with the meeting shared that a number of Trump’s post-presidency political activities were discussed and added that plans to start up the PAC were not finalized. “MAGA supporters and candidates supporting President Trump’s America First agenda are going to be impressed with the political operation being built out here,” Miller said. “We expect formal announcements of the full team in the coming weeks, which will include some very talented operatives not yet named.” The move will likely solidify Trump’s influence over the Republican Party – something that moderates and Democrats alike still fear.
