Republicans Demand Pelosi Be Fined $5,000 for Skirting Her Own Metal Detector Rule

By Ivan Pentchoukov

February 5, 2021

Republicans from the Committee on House Administration on Friday requested that the House Sergeant at Arms impose a fine on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for breaking her own rule by allegedly bypassing a metal detector on her way into the House chamber.

“Yesterday, at approximately 9:59 a.m., multiple members observed the Speaker of the House entering the House chamber without completing a security screening,” Republican Reps. Rodney Davis (Ill.), Barry Loudermilk (Ga.) and Bryan Steil (Wisc.) wrote in a letter to Acting House Sergeant at Arms Timothy Blodgett.

“What was observed was a clear violation of House Resolution 73 and you are required by House Rules to impose this fine. Please inform us once the fine has been assessed.”

Pelosi’s office did not respond to a request for comment. The speaker put the rule in place specifically targeting a handful of Republicans who have spoken about legally carrying firearms on the House floor. The fine for the first offense is $5,000.

The Office of the Sergeant at Arms didn’t respond to a request for comment. Blodgett told The Hill that he has not received a complaint about the matter from the Capitol Police.

“House Sergeant at Arms imposes the fine after receiving an unusual occurrence report from the United States Capitol Police (USCP). An unusual incident report from the Capitol Police is appended to the document sent to the Member providing notice of the fine,” Blodgett wrote to The Hill.

“Only the USCP can determine whether an individual has failed to complete security screening as only the USCP has sufficient training to determine compliance with USCP screening procedures. I have directed that the USCP produce and provide unusual incident reports on any individual who fails to complete security screening without exception. I have not received any unusual incident report from the USCP concerning the Speaker of the House.”

The text of the resolution does not require a report from the USCP for a fine to be imposed but does authorize the sergeant at arms to establish policies and procedures to implement the resolution.

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), who was himself fined $5,000 for violating the resolution, wrote on Twitter, “Why isn’t the Speaker of the House being fined for skirting the metal detector?”

“Speaker Pelosi made the rules. She must live by her rules like everyone else,” Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) wrote on Twitter.

More proof that the lockdown is a scam: All this time, Nancy Pelosi has been illegally going to a hair salon. Also, Pelosi falsely said she had been “set up” by the salon owner. But in reality, it was Pelosi herself who had set up the appointments. And security video shows that Pelosi did not wear a mask.

Here’s another one that I’ll be adding the next time I update my list. You can read my current list at Here are 194 reasons why I’m against the COVID-19 lockdowns

During the entire lockdown, U.S. Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has been illegally going to a hair salon.

Not only that, but when the media reported it, Pelosi falsely claimed that she had been “set up” by the salon owner. Pelosi falsely claimed that it was the salon owner who had contacted Pelosi.

But in reality, it was the other way around. Pelosi had contacted the salon owner to make her appointments.

And security video from the salon shows that Pelosi has been going there repeatedly during the entire lockdown.

And she did not wear a mask.

Since Pelosi is a rich politician, she won’t be arrested for violating the lockdown.

Meanwhile, here’s video footage of an average person who was arrested in California, because they paddle boarded alone in the middle of an otherwise empty beach:

Here’s an article, with multiple videos, about Pelosi repeatedly violating the lockdown:

Busted: Tucker Brings Salon Owner On Air, Who Catches Nancy Pelosi in a HUGE Lie

By Samantha Foster

September 3, 2020

No, Queen Nancy, this is NOT going away.

The Speaker of the House thought she could make SalonGate disappear today by claiming she was “set up” by the San Francisco Salon where Pelosi broke COVID-19 restrictions to get her hair done — without a mask (at age 80!) – while all other city salons were required to be closed.

Now it turns out her claim was a big fat lie.

Salon owner Erica Kious disputed Pelosi’s (D-CA) claim that she was “set up”, saying that Pelosi was the one who called and set up the appointment, and that she has been “coming in for quite a while,” Kious told FoxNews host Tucker Carlson.

“She had called the stylist, or her assistant did, and made the appointment, so the appointment was already booked, so there was no way I could’ve set that up,” Kious said. “And I’ve had a camera system in there for five years. I mean, I didn’t go in there and turn cameras on as soon as she walked in to set her up. So that’s absolutely false.”

“So, Pelosi says that salons in San Francisco, and of course she lives there and she’s the most powerful democratic legislator in the world, but she said she understood that the restrictions allowed a one-on-one appointment in salons,” Fox News host Tucker Carlson said. “What do you make on that?”

“I heard that, and I thought to myself, well, as a hairstylist I see clients one-on-one, so, that would mean I would be open, right?” Kious responded.

“Are you open?” Carlson asked.

“No,” she responded.

When asked what the shutdown has done to her business, Kious responded: “For the past six months, we’ve, I mean, we are pretty much done. I mean, we’ve lost at least 60% of our clients. I’ve lost the majority of my staff, so, six months is a long time to be closed down.”

“How do you feel about seeing the most powerful woman in America come into your salon in violation of the rules she supports, get caught, and then blame you for it?” Carlson asked.

“To be honest, it was more hurtful,” Kious responded. “She’s been coming in for quite a while, and just to see her come in and especially not wearing the mask, that’s what really got to me, but this isn’t even political. She’s been coming in there. It’s the fact that she actually came in and didn’t have a mask on, and I just thought about my staff and people not being able to work and make money and provide for their families, and if she is in there comfortably without a mask and feeling safe, then why are we shut down? Why am I not able to have clients come in? So, it’s been hard.”

“If Nancy Pelosi feels comfortable using your salon, why can’t civilians use it?” Carlson asked.

“Exactly and I’ll be honest, in our area in San Francisco, we are obviously the last county or city to not open,” she answered. “We’ve been trying to figure that out. We’ve been asking ourselves these questions for six months—I mean for the past actually four months, of why we are not reopened, and it’s kind of a good question. Again, we don’t know.”

Kious later stated that she does not plan on staying in San Francisco after this whole ordeal because of how the community has treated her in response to the situation with Pelosi.

“The hard part of all this is that I’ve been in that community for 12 years and since this has happened, I have received nothing but hate text messages, death threats, they’re going to burn my hair salon down,” she said. “My Yelp page is just unbelievable with bad reviews. It’s just sad that my community is pulling this, when they are saying that I threw her under the bus when I didn’t. So that’s hurtful, but yeah, I think I’m pretty much done there.”

Hypocrite Nancy Pelosi says she supports illegal immigrants, but opposes Trump’s proposal to send them to her own Congressional district

Nancy Pelosi has repeatedly said that she supports illegal immigrants.

However, she opposes a recent proposal by Trump to send them to her own Congressional district.

Ashley Etienne, Pelosi’s spokesperson, said of Trump’s proposal:

“The extent of this administration’s cynicism and cruelty cannot be overstated… Using human beings – including little children – as pawns in their warped game to perpetuate fear and demonize immigrants is despicable.”

This reminds me of how Ted Kennedy said he supported wind power, but opposed the proposed offshore Cape Cod wind farm that would have been six miles away from his home, because it would have been “visible.”

Wealthy ‘NIMBY’ libs in Pelosi’s SF district raise $60G to fight center for city’s homeless

Wealthy ‘NIMBY’ libs in Pelosi’s SF district raise $60G to fight center for city’s homeless

March 29, 2019

Rich San Francisco residents in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s congressional district have collected more than $60,000 after starting an online crowdsourcing campaign to wage a legal challenge against a proposed center for the city’s homeless.

The campaign, called “Safe Embarcadero for All,” was launched March 20 after San Francisco Mayor London Breed proposed a 200-bed homeless Navigation Center in the city’s most desirable location, the Embarcadero along the coast of San Francisco Bay, earlier this month.

“The planned location for Mayor Breed’s #megashelter is home to thousands of families, visited by millions of tourists and at the center of some of San Francisco’s most iconic events – including the San Francisco Marathon, San Francisco Giants stadium and on one of the busiest bicyclist paths in the city,” reads the site posted by the group opposing the construction.

The campaign shamelessly raised over $60,000 and is on track to reach the desired $100,000 goal, with the money used to pay attorney Andrew Zacks, who often represents property owners, to help the dissatisfied “Not In My Backyard” residents in the neighborhood.

More than 130 people have chipped in, although many did so anonymously. The biggest donation came from an unknown resident who gave $10,000 to the cause.

A Fox News review of records found that multiple individuals – bank executives, professors and authors – who donated to the GoFundMe page have also contributed to Democratic political groups, including thousands of dollars to the Democratic National Committee, MoveOn, Hillary Clinton’s campaign, and other left-leaning organizations.

One of the donors, Jerome Dodson, who has since scrubbed his $1,000 contribution to the campaign, is reportedly a chairman of a “responsible investment fund” that seeks to make “a positive impact on society,” according to the Washington Free Beacon. The investment fund executive donated to Democratic candidates and groups over the years, including Pelosi and Hillary Clinton.

Fox News reached out to Pelosi’s office, asking whether she offered her support for the project designed to combat homeless in her own district.

A competing GoFundMe campaign was started in support of the project for the homeless in the city, attracting a $5,000 donation from GoFundMe itself. The effort so far has garnered nearly $33,000 in donations – surpassing a set goal of $30,000.

San Francisco’s mayor, meanwhile, slammed the group opposing the construction in a statement to the San Francisco Chronicle.

“People want us to address the challenges on our streets and help our unsheltered residents into housing, and I am committed to doing the hard work to make that happen,” Breed said.

“But it’s incredibly frustrating and disappointing,” she added, “that as soon as we put forward a solution to build a new shelter, people begin to threaten legal action.”

The following rich liberal hypocrites who criticized Trump’s “tax cuts for the rich” have all used legal tax shelters to legally lower their own taxes

Liberals are criticizing Trump’s “tax cuts for the rich.” But this is how these liberals actually behave. The following rich liberals have all used legal tax shelters to legally lower their own taxes. I am not criticizing their legal use of these legal tax shelters. I am criticizing their hypocrisy:

Debbie Wasserman Schultz

The Weekly Standard reports:

Disclosure forms reveal that Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a member of Congress from Florida, previously held funds with investments in Swiss banks, foreign drug companies, and the state bank of India. This revelation comes mere days after the Democratic chair attacked presumptive Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney for holding money in Swiss bank accounts in the past.

Nancy Pelosi

The Daily Caller reports:

According to Pelosi’s 2011 financial disclosure statement, the Democratic House Minority Leader received between $1 million and $5 million in partnership income from ”Matthews International Capital Management LLC,” a group that emphasizes that it has a “A Singular Focus on Investing in Asia.”A quick trip to the company website reveals a featured post extolling the virtues of outsourcing.

Valerie Jarrett

fireandreamitchell.com reports:

Top Obama adviser and BFF Valerie Jarrett has a line of credit from a Bermuda insurance company valued between $100,000 and a quarter of a million dollars.

Barack Obama

Fox News reports:

President Obama and his wife, Michele, gave a total of $48,000 in tax-free gifts to their daughters, according to tax records made public on Friday.The president and his wife separately gave each daughter a $12,000 gift under a section of the federal tax code that exempts such donations from federal taxes.There is nothing illegal about the president’s taking advantage of this tax shelter, but it does raise eyebrows given that he has lamented the myriad tax exemptions used by the wealthy—“millionaires and billionaires” like himself—to pay less in taxes.

Noam Chomsky

The Hoover Institution reports:

One of the most persistent themes in Noam Chomsky’s work has been class warfare. He has frequently lashed out against the “massive use of tax havens to shift the burden to the general population and away from the rich” and criticized the concentration of wealth in “trusts” by the wealthiest 1 percent. The American tax code is rigged with “complicated devices for ensuring that the poor—like 80 percent of the population—pay off the rich.”

But trusts can’t be all bad. After all, Chomsky, with a net worth north of $2,000,000, decided to create one for himself. A few years back he went to Boston’s venerable white-shoe law firm, Palmer and Dodge, and, with the help of a tax attorney specializing in “income-tax planning,” set up an irrevocable trust to protect his assets from Uncle Sam. He named his tax attorney (every socialist radical needs one!) and a daughter as trustees. To the Diane Chomsky Irrevocable Trust (named for another daughter) he has assigned the copyright of several of his books, including multiple international editions.

Chomsky favors the estate tax and massive income redistribution—just not the redistribution of his income. No reason to let radical politics get in the way of sound estate planning.

When I challenged Chomsky about his trust, he suddenly started to sound very bourgeois: “I don’t apologize for putting aside money for my children and grandchildren,” he wrote in one e-mail. Chomsky offered no explanation for why he condemns others who are equally proud of their provision for their children and who try to protect their assets from Uncle Sam.

John Kerry

The Boston Globe reports:

Documents obtained by the Globe detail John Kerry’s 1983 investment of between $25,000 and $30,000 in offshore companies registered in the Cayman Islands. The document below, signed by Kerry, shows his pledge to purchase 2,470 shares of Peabody Commodities Trading Corp. through Sytel Traders, registered in the Caymans.

Barney Frank

National Review reports:

When Massachusetts cut its top tax rate to 5.3 percent in 2001, it let guilty liberals pay the old 5.85 percent rate if they wished… Pro-tax U.S. Rep. Barney Frank (D., Mass.) spurned the higher rate. “No, I won’t” pay some $800 extra, Frank told Boston radio host Howie Carr in April 2003.

Michael Moore

ihatethemedia.com reports:

Moore’s most recent effort, Capitalism: A Love Story, took aim at businesses that used shelters to avoid paying taxes and took government bailouts during the market crash.

The thing is, Moore used similar tactics, taking advantage of a Michigan tax break to fund the making of his film–which raked in millions, by the way. Michigan taxpayers–already hit hard with the collapsing auto industry–were left holding the funny money bag for that one.

Bill Clinton

USA Today reports:

Former president Bill Clinton once made public a tax return on which he deducted $2 apiece for donated underwear.

Nancy Pelosi’s recent statement shows a complete lack of logic

We can always count on Nancy Pelosi to provide us with humor and entertainment as she, time and time again, displays proof that she is bat guano insane.

For her latest display, Breitbart reports:

Pelosi: ‘I Would Have Been Gone By Now’ If Hillary Had Won

While speaking with reporters on Friday, House Minority Leader Representative Nancy Pelosi stated of the 2016 presidential election, “I would have been gone by now if she had won.”

Pelosi said that the Affordable Care Act is “a pillar” and that if Clinton was in office, she wouldn’t worry about the ACA going away. Pelosi continued that “we all knew” Clinton would win.

She added that Trump winning “motivated me her to stay.” And “I would have been gone by now if she had won.”

So, here are the facts, according Pelosi:

1) Pelosi “knew” that Hillary Clinton would win the election.

2) If Clinton won the election, Pelosi would no longer stay in the U.S. House of Representatives.

3) Pelosi ran for reelection.

See the contradiction there? If Pelosi “knew” that Clinton would win, and if Clinton winning would mean that Pelosi would no longer be in the House, then why did Pelosi run for reelection in the first place?

If everything that Pelosi had said was true – i.e., if she truly believed that Clinton would win, and if Clinton winning would mean that Pelosi would no longer be a member of the U.S. House – then Pelosi would not have run for reelection.

But she did run for reelection.

Therefore, her statement is completely lacking in logic.
