(RepublicanWire.org) – Paul Pelosi, husband of Speaker Nancy Pelosi, was formally charged with a DUI misdemeanor after his May arrest for driving drunk.
Paul Pelosi, is now facing criminal charges after being arrested last month for allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol.
“The charges filed today include Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol Causing Injury and Driving With .08% Blood Alcohol Level or Higher Causing Injury,” according to a press release from the Napa County District Attorney’s Office on Thursday.
In California, those offenses can be either misdemeanors or felonies, but in this case the district attorney’s office filed misdemeanor charges “based upon the extent of the injuries suffered by the victim.”
Paul Pelosi, 82, was arrested on May 28 after leaving a dinner at the home of a friend and Democratic donor about six miles from the Pelosis’ house, The New York Times reported. Pelosi was behind the wheel of his Porsche when he tried to make a left turn and was hit by an oncoming Jeep. In the immediate aftermath, authorities had said no injuries were reported. The Thursday statement from the Napa County DA did not elaborate on injuries suffered in the crash.
The 82-year-old husband of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), has a preliminary court date on August 3rd for his Memorial Day weekend DUI arrest in Napa County, California that involved a crash with his Porsche and a Jeep.
Pelosi is out on $5000 bail on charges of driving under the influence of alcohol and driving with a blood alcohol content of 0.08% or higher.
According to the police report, Pelosi pulled out onto S-29 to cross it, ignoring a stop sign, and was struck by Jesus V. Lopez, who was driving a 2014 Jeep. Lopez was reportedly traveling northbound on the state road.

(RepublicanWire) – The husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was arrested and reportedly charged with driving under the influence and driving with a blood alcohol content of 0.08% or higher on May 29.
But what’s happened since?
On Wednesday, rumors circulated that Paul’s charges were dropped, sparking outrage online over the Pelosis’ perceived privilege.
“Serious question,” Donald Trump Jr. posted. “Did anyone really believe that Paul Pelosi would face any consequence at all for his DUI crash? Anyone who’s been paying attention knows that the rules don’t apply to Dems they just want you to abide by what they say not what they do. Recurring theme!”
The only information available, thus far, has been reporting from Edmund DeMarche, cited by Left-wing “fact-checking” site Snopes.
“Napa DA’s office just told the Trends Journal that Paul Pelosi’s DUI charge is ‘under review,’” DeMarche reported on Wednesday. “Reports that they were dropped are false.”
(RepublicanWire.org) – When lunatic leftists began protesting Supreme Court Justices outside their homes, despite the fact these protests violated state and federal laws, Pelosi and the Democrats sought to harness that anger.
Pelosi released a statement calling the pro-abortion fanatics anger “righteous,”while also saying she supported the protests at the homes of the Supreme Court Justices.
“While we have seen and heard extraordinary anguish in our communities, we have been moved by how so many have channeled their righteous anger into meaningful action: planning to march and mobilize to make their voices heard,” Pelosi declared.
But Pelosi’s gambit backfired on multiple fronts.
In response to Pelosi’s call to action, pro-abortion protestors gathered outside her house in San Francisco to complain about Democrats not doing enough to support abortion-on-demand.
“We are here because the Democratic Party and the Democrats as a whole have been complicit in this whole thing,” one protester shouted.
“We are here because this draft decision is what it is, it’s only a draft, and we will protest here, in front of the leadership of the Democratic Party, and in the streets from coast to coast, unceasingly, because we work to keep abortion legal – legal and accessible, not rare,” the protester added.
Another pro-abortion supporter pinned the blame for Democrats not passing a law to codify abortion-on-demand on Hillary Clinton.
“Hillary Clinton, who started the whole thing like abortion should be legal, but rare, as if abortion is a tragedy,” the protester ranted. “We are here to say abortion is a basic right, a basic human right, and without this right, women are basically enslaved. And we will not stand for it.”
Another blamed Pelosi for not taking action when Democrats held a filibuster-proof majority under Barack Obama in 2009.
“Speaker Pelosi, this will be your legacy, 35 years of your reign of terror,” the man shouted. “You had a supermajority under Obama, under which this should have been your top priority. Why did you keep this on the table? Because this is your most effective fundraising tool. That’s why.”
This protest showed why the Democrats’ plan to put abortion at the center of the Midterm campaign will backfire.
At the end of the day, if the Supreme Court does strike down Roe v. Wade, it will leave conservatives in the position of scoring a long-sought win while Democrats will be powerless to do anything, which will only depress their base’s vote even further this November.
(RepublicanWire.org) – I was talking with some family members over the weekend about the situation in Ukraine over why the Biden administration has been hyping a war with Russia. Here’s what we do know. Russian President Vladimir Putin has assembled over 100,000 troops along the Ukraine border. Russia has invaded Ukraine in the past under the Obama-Biden administration and they pretty much got away with it.
We also know that Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky has publicly asked President Joe Biden to stop hyping the situation because it’s not nearly as critical and the Biden administration and their boot-licking sycophants in the misinformation news media have made it out to be.
Our foreign policy should be focused on China and Asia overall, but instead, this pea-brained president is focusing on Eastern Europe, where we have no interests that outweigh what China is trying to do to our standing in the world.
So the big question we asked was why? Why is Joe Biden focusing on a potential Russian invasion of Ukraine and they couldn’t give two figs about a potential Chinese invasion of Taiwan?
Well, apparently Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi let the cat out of the bag on Sunday’s “ABC This Week” with George Stephanopoulos when she made an appearance to talk about current events. Just note that any time a Democrat politician goes on with Stephanopoulos, a former Clintonista political operative, you know that the entire appearance has been pre-planned.
Stephanopoulos first brought up the potential Russian invasion of Ukraine story (a crisis if you ask Democrats) where he asked Pelosi if she believes Putin is about to invade Ukraine.
Pelosi responded, saying, “Well, I think we have to be prepared for it. And that is what the president is … yes, I do believe that he is prepared for an invasion.”
Then it gets interesting when she continues. “I also understand why the President of Ukraine wants to keep people calm and that he wants his economy not to suffer. But, on the other hand, if we were not threatening the sanctions and the rest, it would guarantee that Putin would invade. Let’s hope that diplomacy works. It’s about diplomacy deterrence. Diplomacy deterrence. And the president’s made it very clear. There’s a big price to pay for Russia to go there. So if Russia doesn’t invade, it’s not that he never intended to. It’s just that the sanctions worked.”
Did you get that? She’s building up Joe Biden to plant a seed to make it appear that if there is no invasion of Ukraine, it’s because Biden threatened sanctions, and she stipulates that it is a “guarantee” that Putin would invade if Joe Biden hadn’t promised sanctions for an invasion. She then doubles down, saying that if there is no invasion in the end, then it’s not because Putin never intended to invade, as if Pelosi would know this, it’s because Joe Biden’s brilliant use of sanctions worked.
Pelosi continued, “Well, look, I’m very proud of the work that the president has done. The unity of our allies and NATO to come to an agreement as to the severity of the sanctions is very, very important. And that is … that is something that Putin should pay very close attention to.”
Remember when the same Democrats said that President Donald Trump‘s use of sanctions at any time was immoral?
About three weeks ago, when Biden started talking about sanctions against Putin, the Russian president’s personal press secretary Dmitry Peskov told reporters that individual sanctions against Vladimir Putin wouldn’t be “painful” for him but would be “politically destructive” for the countries imposing such penalties. So, Putin doesn’t care about sanctions against him.
I think what’s going on here is the Democrats need a win. After a year of harmful results that stem from disastrous Biden policies on the American people and our country where he killed our energy policies that are harming everyday Americans, he intentionally allowed over 2 million illegal aliens to enter our country for no other reason that to ensure they get to vote in the future, failing to fix the supply chain problems for our country, spending us into an inflation nightmare, imposing vaccine mandates to force American citizens to take an experimental medicine that they do not want to take, and much more.
But the ultimate failure that will make it into the history books is the unbelievable incompetence shown during the withdrawal from Afghanistan where Biden ordered our military troops out first and then, as an afterthought, American citizens. It is still being reported that there are thousands of Americans that were left behind and are still behind enemy lines with the Taliban searching for them.
The US Senate Foreign Relations Committee has released a new report on the Biden administration’s withdrawal from Afghanistan. The report has found that as many as 9,000 Americans were left behind in Afghanistan during the disastrous withdrawal. The Biden administration knows how bad this makes them look and so they are looking for a win.
So they have been hyping up a potential Russian invasion of Ukraine, even though Putin has said repeatedly that he has no plans to invade the Eastern European country. I hate that the Biden administration is forcing me to support the sleazy Putin, but moving troops along the border of Ukraine is not breaking any laws.
Democrats need at least the perception of a win and so they are using their manufactured Russian invasion “crisis” to tell everyone that the Biden administration will give a strong response to their manufactured crisis if Putin invades, even though he keeps saying he has no plans to do so. And then, they give a specific date that their manufactured crisis is going to happen and if it doesn’t, then it’s only because Joe Biden is such a brilliant tactician, a world-class leader who outsmarted and subdued the Russian military. And when it’s all over, Biden can go back to watching reruns of Matlock as they feed him handfuls of grapes.
This entire Ukraine situation was manufactured for political reasons and I think it’s horrible when a president will use such tactics to gain a perceived win and if the tactic goes south, could cost thousands of soldiers’ lives by the time everything is said and done.
Don’t believe me that this looks like a manufactured crisis? Did you see this exchange between State Department Spokesman Ned Price and veteran AP reporter Matt Lee? Price makes assertions that Putin is planning to create a false flag operation for the purpose of initiating military activity along the border of Ukraine.
Price said that the US government has information that Russia was planning to stage fabricated attacks by Ukraine forces as a pretext for a further invasion of Ukraine. In other words, the Stte Department spokesman said that US intelligence says Russian military members will wear Ukrainian military uniforms and act out a fake attack on Russian troops so that Putin can unleash his military at the border.
It’s such an absurd claim that Matt Lee demanded to see the proof that supports the claim and as you will see, Price can’t do it.
This is the kind of nonsense Democrats are willing to go through to make themselves look good to the American people and the world. We have a group of world-class screwups who are running our country and it looks like they manufactured this Russia-Ukraine invasion for no other reason than to make Joe Biden and the Biden administration appear to be strong in the face of Putin and his military. Think of the money that this false flag operation is costing the taxpayers to pull off. Worse yet, think of the potential loss of life if hostilities do break out because of the amount of hype our side has been engaging in. This is not leadership. This is a scam.
(RepublicanWire.org) – While it may be difficult to keep track of all the examples of hypocrisy coming from Washington, D.C. lawmakers these days, particular in relation to the pandemic, where there appears to be a clear double standard in place, when the insincerity involves the single most powerful Democrat on Capital Hill it still warrants attention.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., who has a history of calling climate change an “existential” threat the U.S. has a “moral” obligation to address, has spent over $500,000 on private jets since 2020, according to Fox News.
“According to campaign filings with the Federal Election Commission, Pelosi’s campaign paid a Virginia-based private aviation provider, Advanced Aviation Team, over $437,000 between October 2020 and December 2021 and over $65,000 to Clay Lacy Aviation, a California-based private jet provider,” the network reported.
The carbon footprint of using private jets compared to commercial flights is certainly not consistent with that “moral” obligation.
The article noted that Pelosi’s campaign spent $67,605 on private air travel just months before she led a 21-member congressional delegation to the UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow, Scotland, and spoke about combatting the alleged climate crisis as a “religious thing.”
“For me, it’s a religious thing,” Pelosi said in November. “I believe this is God’s creation, and we have a moral obligation to be good stewards.”
Of course, Pelosi is not the only hypocrite in DC — more from Fox News:
The campaign for President Biden, who promised to make climate change a key priority of his presidency, spent over $15 million on private air travel over the course of his 2020 campaign. The Democratic National Committee (DNC) has also been vocal about climate change and being “committed to curbing the effects of climate change,” but they have paid out hundreds of thousands of dollars to Advanced Aviation Team in recent years.
Biden’s climate czar, John Kerry, took a private jet to Iceland in 2019 to receive the Arctic Circle award for climate leadership.
Which is not to say that Pelosi’s media allies aren’t quick to paint a different picture, as seen in a 2019 tweet from CNN chief national affairs correspondent Jeff Zeleny noting that the soon to be 82-year-old speaker was flying coach:
The Washington Post even did a full write up of Pelosi’s flying habits, based on the flight above, as seen here:
She flies coach (at least sometimes, at least this one time) — and not the semi-decent, extra-perks coach: Seat 23D, which is not shown in this photo but which was later confirmed as hers, is boring old back-of-the-plane coach. Not even an exit row!
She lives that aisle life. The fight over which is better in the aisle-vs.-window fight will never end, but no one will disagree that Pelosi made the right choice by avoiding the middle in this scenario.
No athleisure here: The speaker is wearing a bright pink dress and what appears to be a scarf draped over her shoulders (the sensible approach to layering for cold plane temperatures in summer). Photos show her in the same pink dress at the NAACP’s national convention in Detroit, along with a pair of pink pumps. We assume you don’t become speaker by taking part in barefoot antics on planes.
Just like the rest of us, she has to hold onto her plane trash for longer than she would probably like, judging from the plastic cup tucked into the back of the seat in front of her.
We don’t know about cross-country flights, but at least in this situation, Pelosi is not a recliner. Her right arm isn’t fully visible, but from the position of her hand, she does not appear to be hogging the middle armrest.
Discretion is key: She’s not taking notes, there’s no paperwork that hints at the conversations she’s having and her phone is obscured by virtue of being pressed to her ear.
(RepublicanWire.org) – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is continuing to protect China with her actions including telling Olympians not to engage in any forms of protest during the Winter Olympics in Beijing, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said Sunday.
“Think about what Nancy Pelosi is done as a speaker,” the California Republican said on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures.” “She has protected China from any investigations to the origin of COVID, even though it has killed more than 900,000 Americans. She has prevented American athletes from protesting at the Olympics and now she’s producing a bill that sends American taxpayer money to China.”
The America Competes Act was passed narrowly in the House Friday almost entirely along party lines and is multibillion-dollar legislation aimed at increasing the United States’ competitiveness with China and boosting U.S. semiconductor manufacturing.
But McCarthy Sunday slammed it as the “concedes” act, as it sends $8 billion to the United Nations’s Climate Fund “that sends $100 mil. to China with unlimited Green Card skills.”
“This is what the Chinese Army uses to bring people into America to spy on us, saying they are students,” said McCarthy. “This bill does nothing to hold China accountable. She held eight months when we put a bill forward to move the Olympics. She would only put it up on the day the only [they] started. I do not know what the Chinese government has on them, but it must be strong.”
Meanwhile, McCarthy promised that “when we take the majority” in the 2022 midterm elections, several investigations will be launched, including into China.
“We will investigate the origins of COVID,” he said. “We will investigate the attorney general’s research into calling parents terrorists. We will investigate the Afghanistan withdrawal. Why did we have 13 new Gold Star families … the release of American taxpayer reports, why is that? There’s a lot of places to hold them accountable.”
Pelosi is seeking yet another term in office “because she’s hungry for power,” McCarthy added. “They are stealing elections in different places by redistricting and gerrymandering. She believes she can win even though overwhelmingly the public says they want a change. They want a secure border, and inflation with safe and secure streets, but the Democratic policies are causing most of the problems.”
(RepublicanWire.org) – Joe Biden is set to deliver his first State of the Union address but there might be a twist.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy reportedly told colleagues this week that each party will only be allowed to invite just 25 House members to attend Biden’s address in person.
“The president is slated to deliver his first State of the Union address on March 1; attendance for his address to a Joint Session of Congress last April also was capped,” Axios reported.
“A Pelosi spokesman said no final decisions have been made. The spokesman said the Speaker’s Office ‘will work closely with the Office of the Attending Physician to accommodate as many Member requests as safely possible.’ Biden’s Joint Address last year was attended by 55 House Democrats and 25 House Republicans, along with 35 Senate Democrats and 25 Senate Republicans, according to a Capitol official,” the report continued.
This is an anonymously sourced report relaying what McCarthy was told, but Pelosi’s office did not actually deny it, but rather said they would speak with the attending physician to discuss protocols.
This comes on the heels of a new survey finding that half of those surveyed by Rasmussen think Biden should be impeached from office.
And what’s more, almost as many surveyed think that’s what Republicans will do if the party wins back control of the House in the 2022 midterms.
“A new national telephone and an online survey by Rasmussen Reports and The National Pulse finds that 50% of Likely U.S. voters support the impeachment of Biden, including 33% who Strongly Support it. Forty-five percent (45%) are opposed to impeaching Biden, including 33% who Strongly Oppose it,” Rasmussen reported.
If Biden were to get impeached, he would face trial in what could be a GOP-controlled Senate after the midterms.
The survey comes amid a dramatic shift in approval ratings for both Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris over their first year in office.
In early December, for instance, an I&I/TIPP poll found that barely one-third of Democrat respondents want Biden to run for reelection.
The survey asked respondents, “Who do you want to see run for president on the Democratic ticket in 2024?”
The report added:
Overall, 22 percent said Biden, followed by 12 percent who said Vice President Kamala Harris, four percent who said Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, and three percent who said Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Rep. Joe Kennedy (D-MA), and Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams. The remaining potential candidates garnered two percent support or less. Thirty-one percent, overall, say they are unsure.
Even among Democrats, specifically, Biden fails to see overwhelming support, as only 37 percent say they want to see him run again on the Democrat ticket in the next presidential election cycle. Another 16 percent of Democrats chose Harris, and 13 percent, overall, remain unsure.
37 percent of independents say they are “not sure” who they want to see run on the Democrat ticket, but only eight percent say it should be Biden.
“But only 8% of independents and other non-major party voters also want Biden back as Democratic standard-bearer,” TIPP noted.
“And 10% want Harris, not Biden. For Biden, that suggests near non-existent support among independents, the swing voters who make up a third or more of all those who go to the polls each election,” the survey added.
“Even Democrats seem less than enthused about Biden holding the top spot. Just 37% want him there,” the poll revealed.
“And only 16% give Harris the nod as presidential standard-bearer, alarming given that Vice President Harris is next in line to be president should Biden not complete his term in office,” the survey continued.
(RepublicanWire.org) – A Tennessee lawmaker introduced a bill proposing illegal migrants in the U.S. be sent to the home states and towns of prominent Democratic leaders, such as President Biden and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
“The Biden administration is quietly moving thousands of illegals to various states, including Tennessee, by putting them on planes and buses and transporting them in the middle of the night, and we should return them to their sender!” state Rep. Bruce Griffey, who introduced the bill, wrote Wednesday.
“I imagine that if we relocated them to the backyards of those responsible for allowing the flood of illegal immigration across our border, then those with federal power might be more apt to secure the border and secure it quickly.”
The bill works to put illegal immigrants into the home states and towns of those “responsible for our border crisis.” The migrants would be put into towns such as Block Island, Rhode Island; Greenwich, Connecticut; Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts; Governors Island, New York; Rehoboth Beach, Delaware; Nantucket, Massachusetts; Newport, Rhode Island; Scarsdale, New York; Palo Alto, California; Yountville, California; St. Helena, California; or North Hero, Vermont.
Biden hails from Delaware, and California is the home state of Vice President Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and others. White House press secretary Jen Psaki is from Greenwich, Connecticut, and North Hero, Vermont, is where Sen. Bernie Sanders has a vacation home.
“We have lawlessness that is intentionally being allowed to happen to benefit powerful, entrenched, wealthy corporate interests, who want cheap labor at the expense of national security, safe communities, and low-wage labor markets. If Tennessee bands together with Governor DeSantis and Florida and other states follow suit, we might actually be able to effect change,” Griffey said in his statement.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said last month he plans to send such illegal immigrants to Delaware and Martha’s Vineyard, where former President Obama and other Democratic leaders own homes.
“If you sent [them] to Delaware or Martha’s Vineyard, that border would be secure the next day,” DeSantis said in December.
Pennsylvania Republicans also said earlier this month that they are drafting a bill to relocate migrants entering the state on federally sponsored flights to Delaware.
Reports surfaced in October of flights coming into suburban New York transporting migrants from border states. Former Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino filed a Freedom of Information Act request that revealed footage this week of a local police officer confronting federal contractors on the tarmac of a Westchester airport on Aug. 13, 2021, who were bringing migrants to the state under the cover of the night.
One contractor told the officer in the video that the flights were kept secret, “because if this gets out, the government is betraying the American people.”
The officer discovered the migrants were being bused to Delaware, Virginia and New Jersey after landing in New York.
“Our government is completely out of control right now. They have lied to us. They’ve lied to the American people,” Astorino, who is running as a Republican for the governor of New York, said Wednesday on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
(RepublicanWire.org) – On the first anniversary of the violence that took place at the United States Capitol Complex in Washington, DC, the mother of Ashli Babbitt, who was shot and killed by a United States Capitol Police Officer as she attempted to crawl through a window into a locked off and barricaded part of the Capitol, had a message for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
You can see all of what she had to say in the video below.
In part, Micki Witthoeft, Babbitt’s mother said at a small gathering on Capitol Hill:
“I would like to say to Nancy Pelosi, this is not your playhouse; it is not your private domain. These surveillance cameras were put up to capture what happened that day. The American people have a right to see the 14,000 hours of the footage. It is not her personal footage. You’re not the Queen, Nancy Pelosi. This is America’s 14,000 hours of missing footage. We have a right to see it…”
Witthoeft went on to say that she believes the January 6 defendants currently in jail or prison are “political prisoners.”
Do you agree or disagree with Babbitt’s mother when she calls on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to release the 14,000 hours of video footage that she believes Pelosi is hiding from the American people?
President Donald Trump wanted National Guard troops in Washington to protect his supporters at a Jan. 6 rally that ended with them attacking the U.S. Capitol, leaving five dead, Trump’s former Pentagon chief testified on Wednesday.
Former Acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller told a House of Representatives panel that he spoke with Trump on Jan. 3, three days before the now-former president’s fiery speech that preceded the violence and led to his second impeachment.
According to Miller’s testimony, Trump asked during that meeting whether the District of Columbia’s mayor had requested National Guard troops for Jan. 6, the day Congress was to ratify Joe Biden’s presidential election victory.
Trump told Miller to “fill” the request, the former defense secretary testified. Miller said Trump told him: “Do whatever is necessary to protect demonstrators that were executing their constitutionally protected rights.”
House Oversight and Reform Committee Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) presides during a House Oversight and Reform Committee hearing titled “The Capitol Insurrection: Unexplained Delays and Unanswered Questions,” regarding the onMiller made the remarks during a contentious hearing held by the House Oversight Committee, which is investigating security failures in the days leading to and during the riot.
Representative Carolyn Maloney, the Democrat who chairs the committee, demanded answers from Miller on why National Guard troops did not arrive until hours after the building was Miller testified that the U.S. military was deliberately restrained that day when Trump’s rally turned into an assault by hundreds of his followers that left five dead, including a Capitol Police officer.
Miller testified that he was concerned in the days before Jan. 6 that sending National Guard troops to Washington would fan fears of a military coup or that Trump advisers were advocating martial law.
If Pelosi was really that concerned about protecting the Capital, wouldn’t she have accepted Trump’s request for additional troops, who’s fault is it now Nancy?
