Bombshell! Did Trump Know About Pelosi’s Government Aircraft Usage Records?

If you’ve been on social media over the past several hours, it is absolutely exploding with one meme after another mocking Nancy Pelosi’s 7-day overseas “public relations” trip being canceled. I’ve seen everything from jetway ladders full of people with no airplane to board, to a shot of a witch flying a broom with the caption “I guess Pelosi decided to fly after all.”

Of course, there are all kinds of comments about how “petty” or “inappropriate” President Trump’s actions were, but with the revelation of the information we have here from Judicial Watch, it’s enough to make one wonder if he already knew the information we have had revealed here.

This from Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, announced today that it has obtained new documents from the United States Air Force (USAF) detailing then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s use of USAF aircraft in 2010. The records obtained through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), which include flight manifests, expense summaries, copies of receipts and Congressional correspondence, detail a number of trips made by Speaker Pelosi in 2010, including:

  • A May 6-10, 2010, Congressional Delegation to Afghanistan and Germany “to discuss issues of mutual interest in Qatar and Afghanistan, as well as conduct oversight on women’s issues (troops) in Afghanistan and to visit with US troops and meet with government officials in Germany.” The total cost of military travel was $204,135.00. The records indicate then-Speaker Pelosi made a personal request that the “maximum per diem allowance be made available at the enhanced rate of an additional $50.”
  • Numerous trips were made by Speaker Pelosi between San Francisco and Andrews Air Force Base. Several of these trips included members of Speaker Pelosi’s family, including her husband, daughter, granddaughters and son-in law. For example, one “Staff Summary Sheet” detailing a January 4, 2010, flight from San Francisco to Andrews Air Force Base notes that Pelosi’s daughter Christina “owes for $99.00 (flight) and $7.82 (meal).” The documents suggest that the Speaker’s office was billed for the fees but do not indicate whether the bills were paid.
  • A January 7-11, 2010, Congressional Delegation to Detroit, Michigan, for the expressed purpose of reviewing “the impact of congressional appropriations and policy in promoting innovation, technological development and job creation in US auto industry.” The Detroit trip required $24,336.60 in commercial air travel and an additional $10,046.87 in expenses. The Pentagon also paid for military escorts for the trip.
  • One document notes that the mode of transportation for the trip would be “Comair and Milair,” (commercial air travel and military air travel). However, the only cost related to the military portion of the transportation detailed in the records is a $15,000 advance secured for ground transportation, meals and lodging. Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) drove himself to Detroit and sought $228 in mileage reimbursement. A total of 24 House Members (16 Democrats, 8 Republicans), led by then-Speaker Pelosi and then-Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD), were on the list of trip participants.

Overall, according to documents uncovered by Judicial Watch in January 2011, Pelosi used the Air Force aircraft for a total of 43 trips, covering 90,155 miles, from January 1 through October 1, 2010. Judicial Watch, through FOIA, continues to pursue other records related to Pelosi’s use of Air Force aircraft.Previous documents obtained by Judicial Watch show the former Speaker’s military travel cost the USAF $2,100,744.59 over one two-year period — $101,429.14 of which was for in-flight expenses, including food and alcohol. For example, purchases for one Pelosi-led congressional delegation traveling from Washington, DC, through Tel Aviv, Israel to Baghdad, Iraq May 15-20, 2008 included: Johnny Walker Red scotch, Grey Goose vodka, E&J brandy, Bailey’s Irish Crème, Maker’s Mark whiskey, Courvoisier cognac, Bacardi Light rum, Jim Beam whiskey, Beefeater gin, Dewars scotch, Bombay Sapphire gin, Jack Daniels whiskey, Corona beer and several bottles of wine.Judicial Watch also previously uncovered internal Department of Defense (DOD) documents email correspondence detailing attempts by DOD staff to accommodate Pelosi’s numerous requests for military escorts and military aircraft as well as the speaker’s last minute cancellations and changes. For example, in response to a series of requests for military aircraft, one DOD 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.”Judicial Watch also uncovered emails from the DOD that show the Pentagon worked hand-in-hand with congressional offices prior to releasing documents regarding congressional military travel under the FOIA. These “heads up” emails involved FOIA requests filed by Judicial Watch, The Wall Street JournalCongressional Quarterly and Roll Call, among other organizations, related to the use of military aircraft by a number of congressional members, including Pelosi.Following numerous press reports documenting Pelosi’s misuse of military air craft, current House Speaker John Boehner announced that he would fly commercial between his home district and Washington, DC. Nevertheless, Judicial Watch has initiated a separate investigation into travel since Republicans took control of the House.“These documents further detail former Speaker Pelosi’s shameless abuse of military air craft during her tenure as House Speaker. Providing sweetheart travel deals for her adult children are an abuse of her high public office,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “But this scandal is much larger than Speaker Pelosi, as the massive Detroit Auto Show junket shows. Members of the House are able to obtain permission from the Office of the Speaker for the use of military luxury and military-supported travel for congressional delegation trips. These trips, known as CODELs, have exploded in number and cost. Speaker Boehner needs to reform this abuse of our military’s assets. For all the recent talk about corporate luxury jets here in Washington, the American people might be surprised to learn the Air Force has an entire wing of luxury jets (in addition to President Obama’s Air Force One planes) for the use of congressmen and top administration officials.”

This is one of those instances in which it would have been fun to be the proverbial fly on the wall to see how President Trump came to decide to cancel Pelosi and company’s flight. Considering the man’s high IQ, it seems reasonable that he may have just remembered hearing about all these little junkets around the world, and all it took for him to pull the trigger would have been for someone to let him know they were on their way to the airfield, and why.

Another possibility is that he may have just done his homework on her and that he knew future abuses were inevitable – and all he had to do was bide his time until she packed her bags. The timing of his block couldn’t have been more perfect. According to other reports I’ve seen, they were barely ten minutes away from boarding when the stop order was communicated. We’ll never know now, but it would have been interesting if the order to turn back would have been issued had the plane left the ground. Any way you shake it, the information from JW certainly adds weight to the correctness of the president’s recall.

Easter Sunday’s Sri Lanka Bombings Condemned by Jewish Leaders

A few hours ago we posted a report of a deadly series of simultaneous bombings in Sri Lanka. At the time of that report, the estimated death toll was around 100, but the most recent update we have now says at least 207 are dead, with hundreds more wounded.

From Breitbart:

Arutz Sheva reports: Israeli and Jewish leaders condemned the series of deadly bombings which killed at least 207 people and wounded hundreds more in Sri Lanka Sunday morning.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said, “In the name of the citizens of Israel, it expresses deep shock at the murderous attacks against innocent civilians in Sri Lanka, and Israel is ready to assist the authorities in Sri Lanka at this difficult time.”
President of the State Reuven Rivlin condemned the attacks and sent condolences to the families of those killed: “The attacks in Sri Lanka, including against those who were celebrating Easter, are a despicable crime. We are all children of G-d, an attack on one religion is an attack on all of us. Best wishes for the wounded.”

Source: Breitbart News

It’s so moving to hear Prime Minister Netanyahu’s support of the people left behind after this heinous act. There are many on the left, even in our Congress, that are openly anti-semitic and anti-Christian, yet Netanyahu recognizes, acknowledges, and supports the Christian community (much to the liberals’ chagrin, I’m sure).

The sounds of the mainstream media’s reports are being deafened by the noise of crickets, unlike when the mass shooting of Muslims took place in New Zealand. I’m sure they will conveniently remain silent since there won’t be any ammunition in this attack they can use to try to tear down President Trump. The rule of thumb that became the norm decades ago was “if it bleeds, it leads,” but now the only ones the liberal media want to see bleed are Trump supporters and Trump himself.

I remember when it was truly a day of mourning when events of this type were aired, but now the MSM outlets are much more selective. The way they treat crisis events of this type now, the only ones whose blood matters is that of innocent non-Christians. I would not be at all surprised to find that if their private conversations were made public, liberal haters of God would be applauding the deaths of every Christian on the planet.

Early Fake News Victim is the Subject of a New Clint Eastwood Movie

The term Fake News has become a daily flogging point against those in the mainstream media, from the White House press crew to the full gamut of TV, online, and print outlets. President Trump regularly trolls them with verbal backhands, and for a good reason; they’ve become the absolute masters of disinformation and left-leaning propaganda.

Clint Eastwood staunchly supports the president and has taken on a  new project, a movie based on a story called The Ballad Of Richard Jewell, who was a victim of a media smear campaign twenty-odd years ago from which he never recovered.

This from Breitbart:

Oscar-winning director Clint Eastwood is circling The Ballad of Richard Jewell as his next project, the tragic story about an early victim of our fake news media.

Jewell was a 34-year-old security guard at the 1996 Summer Olympic Games in Atlanta, Georgia, and at first he was rightfully hailed as a hero after he discovered a backpack filled with explosives and risked his own life to evacuate the area. After the bomb went off, dozens were injured and one person was killed. There is no question, though, that many, many more would have died had Jewell not sounded the alarm.

Unfortunately for Jewell, the acclaim didn’t last long. He was overweight, white, and a southerner — the perfect target for our left-wing media… And so, three days later the media reported the F.B.I. was looking at him as a possible suspect. There was zero evidence against Jewell. The entire story was based on a criminal profile of the bomber.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution launched the hate campaign by comparing Jewell to the serial killer behind a horrible series of child murders in Atlanta.

Immediately, the rest of the unquestioning, totally irresponsible, and reckless media went to town on Jewell, portraying him as a pathetic mama’s boy, a fat guy who failed at law enforcement, a clown in a security guard uniform who planted the bomb to make himself a hero.

Source: Breitbart News

The article goes on to talk about many more details that I don’t have room for here, but the real bottom line here is that Jewell died young at the age of 42 and never recovered from the media assault on his character and his life.

That kind of abuse is what absolutely infuriates me about the way many of the far-left politicians and media personalities behave. It reminds me of the cliques that become a part of high school life. If you’re in the “in” crowd, nothing matters except adherence to the Group Think. If you dare express your individuality, woe is you, because they will slaughter you verbally, if not physically.

I know many people who have been deceived by the mantra of the Left, and while in many ways they may be friendly people, when it comes to some things (such as politics), they seem to totally lose their minds. It’s almost as if there’s a recorded message in there that certain things trigger, and their minds are made up, so don’t confuse them with the facts.

Richard Jewell was a victim of Fake News attacks long before it became a national buzzword. I believe Clint Eastwood’s movie will shed some light on how despicable and pervasive the problem has become in today’s political climate.

Donna Brazile Says Obama Admin ‘Did Everything They Could’, Defends Obama’s Actions Concerning Russian 2016 Election Meddling

We know from history that Donna Brazile is what I would call a hard-core Democrat. I suppose you could say she was hired to be a contributor at Fox News as somewhat of an “expert” on things Democrat (I won’t use the term “democratic,” because that term completely twists the meaning). In a recent segment, she defended the most radically-left president this country has ever seen, Barack Hussein Obama, against naysayers who are critical of his action, or rather the lack of action, concerning Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

This from Breitbart:

Longtime Democrat operative and newly minted Fox News contributor Donna Brazile defended former President Barack Obama and his administration over Russia meddling in the 2016 presidential election, saying she believes they did “everything they could.”

“I think they did everything they could without sounding all of the alarm bells,” Brazile said on Fox News’s The Daily Briefing.
“If Obama did more on Russian meddling, she said, critics would have accused him of trying to help his former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, in her race against then-candidate Donald Trump,” Fox News reported.
“He was in a box,” Brazile said of the former president. 
“Perhaps President Trump is in a box,” she added, before calling for action to prevent future meddling. 
In the Fox report, Brazile claimed it was the Trump campaign that “exploited” information from WikiLeaks, which has suspected ties to Russia.
“Every day, the Trump campaign would get the WikiLeaks information; they would blast it,” Brazile said. “He used it in his daily rallies and daily meetings.”
“Brazile, who served as interim Democratic National Committee chair during the election, backed away from making any determination about whether her party should pursue impeaching the president,” Fox reported.

Source: Breitbart News

So now that the Mueller report has been wrapped up, the findings say clearly that neither President Trump nor anyone in his presidential campaign colluded with Russia. The report should have cleared him from any charges of obstruction of justice, but that didn’t happen. Of course, we know that the reason it was left open-ended is to set the Democrats up with something they call a “road map for impeachment.”

Senator Elizabeth Warren is still beating the impeachment drum as she continues to campaign for a shot at the Oval Office, but Brazile has stepped back from that position a bit. She may believe Trump should be removed from the White House, but she isn’t endorsing it nearly so vigorously right now.

She was quoted as saying“I think it’s premature to talk about what the next step is. Before we can move into what I call the impeachment gear, perhaps we should just dive into this report.”

Fox News reported, “Like Brazile, DNC Chair Tom Perez appeared to sidestep impeachment questions on Thursday and said it was unclear whether or not obstruction occurred.”

President Trump’s exoneration via the Mueller report is a stinging rebuke to all those of the far left who howled for over two years about him being unfit for the White House. They keep running the old playbook plan in which they accuse him of all the things of which they are most guilty. Obstructionism? Look no farther than the Democrat party. They would stand against an ice cream social if it came out that Trump suggested it.
