Speaker Pelosi’s Son Also Earned Millions with Ukraine Energy Company Deals

News has emerged that Nancy Pelosi’s son also found suspicious success at earning millions with deals with Ukrainian energy companies.

Published

With focus on Joe Biden’s son earning millions from a Ukrainian energy company deal despite having no experience in the energy industry, now news has emerged that Nancy Pelosi’s son also found suspicious success at earning millions with deals with Ukrainian energy companies.

Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s son, Paul Pelosi Jr., reportedly visited Ukraine in 2017. There he met with government officials about a business deal that would lead to a deal with a gas industry company that he would join as an executive.

His high-powered mother can’t claim to be ignorant of her son’s deals, either. She was featured in one of his company promotional videos.

Patrick Howley broke the news:

Paul Pelosi flew to Ukraine in July of 2017 to represent the Corporate Governance Initiative as its executive director. Suspiciously, he took over that role only a few months before striking his huge deal in Ukraine.

The young Pelosi even appeared on Ukrainian TV during his visit:

Speaker Pelosi appeared in a 2013 promo video for NRGLab New Technology, one of her son’s ventures.

“My name’s Paul Pelosi. Of course, I’m on the board of Viscoil. And Viscoil is here today to talk about accelerating the future. It’s about using cars in a more efficient manner. It’s about utilizing natural resources, whether it be electricity, or gas, or fossil fuels in a more efficient way. And Viscoil is a part of that solution,” the Speaker’s son said in the video.

Pelosi’s son has had a few brushes with the law, too. “Paul Pelosi Jr. co-founded the company Natural Blue Resources, which the SEC charged with securities fraud in 2014,” National File reported.

Further, more in depth information about Mr. Pelosi’s companies can be seen at National File if you are interested in more info. But here we are wondering how it is possible that all these children of high-profile Democrats keep accidentally falling into multi-million-dollar deals with Ukrainian energy companies.

Granted, unlike Joe “Quid Pro Joe” Biden’s son who had no energy industry experience, you can at least say that young Mr. Pelosi belonged to some energy companies before growing his millions further with his Ukraine deals.

But how do the children of these Pelosis, Bidens, Kerrys, and Romneys somehow fall into these super lucrative deals with the very foreign nations that their parents are elected to deal with?

It is quite a mystery, isn’t it?

Two Dozen Frustrated Republicans Storm Schiff’s ‘Secret’ Impeachment Room

These lawmakers are standing up for the rights of the American taxpayers who are funding this imbecilic impeachment debacle.

Published

on

The Democrats have left the American people in the dark during their impeachment “inquiry”, and that has caused a fury to foment within the Republican Party.

Deep within the bowels of Capitol Hill, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff has been toiling away in a number of secretive impeachment hearings, aimed at shedding light on the President’s dealings with Ukraine, particularly as it pertains to their ongoing corruption investigations.

And while the very idea of impeachment is enough to warrant public concern of the utmost urgency, Schiff is working in the dark, and keeping the American taxpayers who are funding this charade completely out of the loop.

Republicans, incensed at the reality of the situation, are taking matters into their own hands.

About two dozen frustrated House Republicans on Wednesday stormed the secret room where House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) has been running the closed-door impeachment inquiry.

Led by House Judiciary Committee member Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), the Republican lawmakers attempted to enter the room where Schiff  has been bringing in current and former State Department officials to testify on whether President Trump withheld military aid from Ukraine in exchange for alleged help with the 2020 election.

Rep. Mike Waltz (R-FL) told reporters outside the room that he has served in third world countries more transparent than the way Schiff was handling the impeachment inquiry. Last week, 184 Republicans voted to censure Schiff.

This frustration has been mounting for some time, as Schiff and other Democrats continue to proceed with their “formal impeachment inquiry” without the endorsement of a House vote on the matter.

This refusal to authorize the proceedings has forced the White House to announce a stance of noncooperation with the ongoing investigation.

Quid Pro Quo Claim ‘Destroyed’ in Hearings But Democrats Won’t Release ‘Secret’ Testimony

House Republican Minority Leader Kevin McCarty says that the claim the media called explosive proof of Trump’s Ukraine quid pro quo was totally undermined.

Published

on

House Republican Minority Leader Kevin McCarty says that the claim the media called explosive proof of Trump’s Ukraine quid pro quo was totally undermined in the same hearing, but the Democrats won’t allow the “secret” testimony to be released to prove it.

On Tuesday the media went wild with claims that acting U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Bill Taylor “admitted” that President Donald Trump acted improperly with Ukraine.

Taylor told the secret hearing that many members of the deep state were worried that Trump was trying to withhold aid to Ukraine to force the country to help him get dirt on Joe Biden.

“My understanding was that the Secretaries of Defense and State, the CIA Director, and the National Security Advisor sought a joint meeting with the president to convince him to release the hold, but such a meeting was hard to schedule and the hold lasted well into September,” Taylor said.

This, the left has claimed, is “proof” of a Trump demand for quid pro quo and an impeachable offense. And this claim has led the news all across the country making Trump look very bad.

However, McCarthy says that in the hearing, the claim of quid pro quo was totally “destroyed,” but the Democrats have locked the hearing down and made it a “closed door” session so that Americans cannot hear what happened.

“In 90 seconds, we had John Ratcliffe destroy [acting U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Bill] Taylor’s whole argument,” McCarthy told Fox News.

McCarthy added that questioning by John Ratcliffe, a Texas Republican and member of both the House Intelligence and Judiciary Committees, killed the left’s quid pro quo accusation. But, McCarthy said, because the Democrats have made it all a secret, so, “We can’t really talk about it.”

“Adam Schiff won’t let us talk about what happened,” McCarthy said referring to Taylor’s closed-door hearing on Capitol Hill. “There is no quid pro quo.”

McCarthy also slammed the flawed testimony that the committee is hearing.

“The one thing that you find out in this process is all this information is just like that whistleblower… everything is second-, third-, and fourth-hand information,” McCarthy added.

Finally, McCarthy accused the Democrats led by House Intel Committee Chair Adam Schiff of constantly changing every previous rule in order to target and destroy a sitting president.

Dems Slam Trump for ‘Lynching’ Comment But Said Same Thing about Clinton Impeachment

Old video has emerged showing the Democrats attacking President Donald Trump calling Clinton’s impeachment a “lynching.”

Published

on

A long list of Democrats came out hyperbolicly attacking President Trump, Tuesday, calling him a racist because he said their impeachment attack on him was a “lynching.” But now, old video has emerged showing these same Democrats using the exact same word to describe Clinton’s impeachment back in the 1990s.

The comment that sparked the latest faux outrage was contained on a tweet that Trump posted on Tuesday.

“So some day, if a Democrat becomes President and the Republicans win the House, even by a tiny margin, they can impeach the President, without due process or fairness or any legal rights,” Trump tweeted. “All Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here – a lynching. But we will WIN!”

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1186611272231636992

But the fake outrage was quickly ginned up by Democrats claiming that the white man in the White House was not allowed to use the word “lynching” because RACISM!

Democrats including James Clyburn, Bobby Rush, Karen Bass . Bernie Thompson, Gregory Meeks, Jerold Nadler, and many more slammed Trump for using the word.

But as soon as these loons began complaining about the situation, people began noting that many of these same liberal Democrats used the exact same word back in the 1990s to describe President Bill Clinton’s impeachment.

New York Times Admits There’s A Deep State, But It’s All Cool Because They’re Courageous Heroes

They’re now admitting there is a Deep State?

New York Times Admits There’s A Deep State, But It’s All Cool Because They're Courageous Heroes

The idea that unelected anti-Trump bureaucrats are just selflessly looking out for the interests of the American people is laughable.

Funny how the goal of these “patriotic public servants” is to systematically dismantle everything that has ever made our country strong or prosperous.

The Federalist:

Depending on your politics, you either think the “deep state” is a sinister cabal of unelected career bureaucrats trying to undermine a duly-elected president or a laughable conspiracy theory cooked up by President Trump and his supporters. There’s not much middle ground.

But if you’re the New York Times’ Michelle Cottle, you manage a neat trick: to believe the deep state is both real and great. It’s actually made up of courageous heroes, you see, who deserve our gratitude. Cottle calls the deep state “a collection of patriotic public servants — career diplomats, scientists, intelligence officers and others — who, from within the bowels of this corrupt and corrupting administration, have somehow remembered that their duty is to protect the interests, not of a particular leader, but of the American people.”

Specifically, Cottle is thinking of the career bureaucrats now cooperating with the Democratic-controlled House’s ongoing impeachment charade. There’s Fiona Hill, the president’s former top Russia advisor, Michael McKinley, a former advisor to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and of course the anonymous anti-Trump whistleblower, who illegally colluded with the office of Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff prior to filing his complaint. Cottle would have us believe the motives of these unelected bureaucrats are pure. “Their aim was not to bring down Mr. Trump out of personal or political animus but to rescue the Republic from his excesses.” More

They’re now admitting there is a Deep State? What about all the stories and opinion pieces they wrote that said the exact opposite, and mocked anyone who said otherwise?

President Trump Begins to Look at Possible Replacements for Misspeaking Mulvaney

The Trump White House has gone through a number of staff shakeups throughout the President’s first term, an indication of the CEO-in-Chief’s commitment to the evolution of his administration. 

Published

on

We are entering into a dire time for this White House, and those who can’t stay afloat will soon find themselves swept away by the political undercurrent.

Such is the case of Mick Mulvaney, the White House Chief of Staff whose confrontational press conference last week sparked outrage among Democrats and Republicans alike.  During the performance, Mulvaney admirably attempted to chastise the press gaggle’s constant, possibly purposeful misinterpretations of President Trump’s words, but ended up in a trap himself, appearing to indicate that there was indeed a “quid pro quo” in the Ukrainian scandal that has currently enveloped the White House.

Mulvaney has since reiterated that he was misunderstood, but it appears as though the mainstream media is happy to ignore the clarifications.

This unfortunate incident has President Trump mulling over possible replacements for Mulvaney, including a number of notable names.

About a month ago, Trump said to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin in front of a roomful of staff: You have such great ideas, why don’t you be my chief? He has made similar remarks about Chris Liddell, a deputy chief of staff at the White House, according to people familiar with the matter. He’s also asked advisers whether his counselor Kellyanne Conway would be a good chief of staff, other people said.

Some White House aides say this is nothing new, and that Trump often tests similar ideas in conversation or makes such remarks to flatter his aides and keep others on their toes.

There is no official plan to move away from Mulvaney, however.

Mulvaney’s departure isn’t seen as imminent. But some of Trump’s closest associates have assembled a roster of possible replacements if the president decides to replace Mulvaney, Bloomberg News reported Sunday. Among those said to be on the list are former acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, and veteran political operative Wayne Berman, now a senior managing director for government relations at the Blackstone Group Inc.

Some senior White House staff have rallied around Mulvaney. On Monday, Mulvaney admitted during a senior staff meeting that he had erred somewhat in the news conference, according to two people familiar with the matter. Other officials responded with support and a round of applause.

“Mick Mulvaney’s standing in the White House has not changed,” White House spokesman Judd Deere said Monday in an e-mail. “He is still the acting chief of staff and has the president’s confidence.”

The Trump White House has gone through a number of staff shakeups throughout the President’s first term, an indication of the CEO-in-Chief’s commitment to the evolution of his administration.

The Impeachment ‘Inquiry’ is Nothing More Than a 24/7 Anti-Trump Campaign Ad for 2020

From perjury traps to being ‘guilty until proven innocent’, this entire debacle is little more than a 2020 PR stunt.

Published

on

While it may seem as though the mainstream media is a skipping record these days, with impeachment being the song that we’re currently stuck on, the left side of the aisle are dragging their feet on the matter…and it’s all a part of their plan to meddle in the 2020 election.

Every day it seems as though another high level official is getting grilled in front of Congress, yet we hear very little about what was said.  If the Democrats had the open-and-shut, slam dunk sort of case that they are bragging about, why the secrecy?

This molasses-inspired pace, and this molasses-like transparency, are one in the same, and the sort of tactic that we would expect to see in the crooked corners of the American justice system – not on Capitol Hill.

The left is taking things very slowly, tortoise-like even, because they need to drag this entire meandering malfeasance long into the calendar year – and perhaps even beyond.  President Trump will certainly be the GOP nominee for 2020, and moving the epicenter of the impeachment explosion ever closer to November of next year behooves the Democratic political cause.  Should Trump come out of this mess unscathed and early, (as the Senate would vote to end this joke rather handily), it would be an enormous feather in the MAGA cap that Trump wears into the meat-and-potatoes of the election season.

For the Democrats, the longer this takes, the better.

When it comes to the timing, there is yet another aspect that few are willing to discuss, and that is the possibility that the Department of Justice will be unleashing a bombshell of their own in the coming weeks regarding the mysterious origins of the “RussiaGate” probe that sought to take down President Trump shortly after his election.

In terms of public perception, the enormity of “SpyGate” will wholly eclipse whatever Ukrainian phone call nonsense the left can conjure up.  This means that, in the timeline of “impeachment”, the Trump administration has an ace up their sleeve.  As soon as Nancy Pelosi is finally forced to pull the trigger on an impeachment vote, our nation will become privy to information that sets the Democratic Party on fire – stealing the thunder from this “inquiry”, despite how “formal” the left is insisting that it is.

The secrecy employed by the Democrats in this matter is an affront to the American ethos of justice, however, and should be dealt with immediately.

This “inquiry” is occurring behind closed doors, despite the fact that nearly everyone involved is a public servant who serves We The People.  The entire thing is being bankrolled by us, the US taxpayers, and we have every right to know what is happening.  This has not only left We The People in the dark, but also the President.  It’s the equivalent of a police officer separating all of the witnesses, hoping that someone misremembers something, blowing an inadvertent hole in their alibi.

When this sort of thing occurs behind closed doors on Capitol Hill, we call it a “perjury trap”.

Furthermore, by refusing to hold a vote to authorize the “inquiry”, the Democrats have stolen the President’s right to defend himself against the allegations at hand – something that flies in the face of the American tenet of being “innocent until proven guilty”.  In this case, the left will eventually have a trial in the Senate in which they will level a mass of guilt at the President and expect him to fully exonerate himself.

That is not how justice works in the United States.  Here, in the freest nation to ever exist, the burden of proof is on the accuser, not the defendant.  This entire “impeachment inquiry” is a mockery of that very ideology.

And, as if these reasons weren’t enough to call shenanigans on the entire farce, we mustn’t ignore that, with an election fast approaching, the “inquiry” itself is nothing more than taxpayer-funded opposition research for 2020.  Whatever supposedly “damning” information that is revealed, in secret, to the Democrats will undoubtedly surface in campaign ads and stump speeches during the run-up to next November’s election.

This isn’t an impeachment proceeding as the founders intended; it’s a 24-7 anti-Trump campaign advertisement.

Nancy at the Bat

Published

With the World Series back in the nation’s capital, herewith a new take on – A Ballad of the Republic, Sung in the Year 2019

WITH RESPECT TO ERNEST LAWRENCE THAYER


Nancy at the Bat

The outlook wasn’t brilliant for the Deep State nine that day;
The score stood four to zero with collusion out of play.
And when Comey lied to all the world, and Blasey Ford the same,
A sickly silence fell upon the patrons of the game

Democrats all bowed their heads in deepest agony.
Like Monica Lewinsky they were brought down to their knees.
They thought if only Nancy could but get a whack at that
They’d put up even money with the Speaker at the bat.

But Nadler preceded Nancy, as did Adam Schiff,
And the former is a lulu and the latter is a stiff;
So upon that stricken multitude grim melancholy sat,
For there seemed but little chance of Nancy getting to the bat.

But Nadler held his hearing, which was nothing but a show,
And Schiff’s fake whistleblower, faked a whistle he could blow;
And when the dust had lifted, Leftists spirits on the rise,
High Pants got more brazen while Pencil Neck told more lies.

From AOC and her silly Squad there rose a whiny yell;
“Impeach him, Speaker Nancy, or we make your life a Hell”;
Beaten by the Far Left screeds her power knocked down flat,
Nancy, Speaker Nancy, caved to the barkeep brat.

“The House will have an inquiry,” Nancy said, slurring every note,
“But to protect our members from defeat, we will not hold a vote.”
There was a smile on Nancy’s wrinkled face like a raisin’d Cheshire cat.
No stranger in the crowd could doubt ’twas Nancy at the bat.

Late night hosts were with her and she was lauded on The View;
Networks and the cable shows spewed more of their fake news..
Then when the MAGA truth was being heard on cable Fox,
Fear was seen in Nancy’s eyes, causing curls to Nancy’s socks

With Trump filling stadiums from here to every where,
Democrats could only watch and shake their heads in grave despair.
Close by the aging Speaker the facts unheeded sped—
“That ain’t my style,” said Nancy. “Strike one,” the voters said.

From the press rooms, CNN worst of all, there went a muffled roar,
Like the beating of the storm-waves on a stern and distant shore.
“Impeach The Donald!” shouted Fredo filled with all his hate;
“Why this,” said has-been Berstein, ”is worse than Watergate!”.

With scorn for the Constitution, Speaker Nancy stuttered on;
She muttered through her presser; throwing Socialists a bone;
She dismissed the last election, and once more the spittle flew;
But Nancy ignored the people, and the people yelled, “Strike two.”

“Racist!” the maddened Leftists screamed, “Racist!” the Maddow cried;
Then a walkout by ol’ Nancy with Chuck Schumer by her side.
Pray for Trump she said she would, “there’s a problem with his brain!”
But voters know what they’ve come to know, Speaker Nancy lies again.

The botox gone from Nancy’s lip, as she pounds the podium;
The witch’s hunt, her scandalous hunt, proceeds ad nauseum.
The MAGA hurler holds the truth, and now he makes it known,
And now the air is shattered by the force of Nancy’s groan.

Oh, somewhere in this favored land the sun is shining bright;
The band is playing somewhere, and somewhere hearts are light,
And somewhere men are laughing, and somewhere children shout;
But there is no joy in Deep State — Speaker Nancy has struck out.
