Scandal: Because Of Nancy Pelosi, Taxpayers Just Gave $1 Billion To This Liberal Donor

Nancy Pelosi steered more than a billion dollars toward a project that benefited the hedge fund of environmentalist billionaire Tom Steyer.

Steyer’s hedge fund, Farallon Capital Management, purchased 2 million square feet of commercial real estate in San Franciso’s Mission Bay neighborhood back in 2004 in a $343 million deal.

Pelosi has steered more than a billion dollars to a light rail project that greatly benefited the neighborhood–and in turn benefited Mr. Steyer.

As the San Francisco Business Times noted last year: “From a decrepit and seemingly abandoned old rail yard 15 years ago, Mission Bay has sprouted into San Francisco’s fastest-growing neighborhood.”

Billionaire Steyer has used his fortune to greatly help Democrats, pledging to spend $50 million of his money in 2014 and raise $50 million as well.

How has Farallon Capital Management been spending its lobbying dollars? Since October 2011, Farallon has lobbied on nothing but Mission Bay. It has paid $300,000 to lobby Congress and the Department of Transportation on Mission Bay.

Has Nancy Pelosi committed a grave crime by pushing for so much money to be spent on Mission Bay light rail (and by doing so helping her ultra rich political ally?)

Watch: What Nancy Pelosi Just Did On The House Floor Has People Questioning Her Sanity


Hollywood Actor James Woods recently asked the question that no one has yet dared to ask – and it regards Nancy Pelosi’s sanity.

Woods is known for his politically charged tweets, unafraid to censure and question the motives behind the Obama administration’s actions.

So in light of Pelosi’s erratic actions on the House floor recently, which involved a breach in proprietary civility, it comes as no surprise that he had something to say.

Pelosi’s shocking behavior began with her interrupting Republican Rep. Tom Marino as he debated the border crisis situation, to which Marino said, “Yes it is true. I did the research on it. You might want to try it.”

Marino, at the end of his statement, added, “Apparently, I hit the right nerve.”

Pelosi left her seat and can then be seen wandering the floor, looking for Marino, repeatedly saying, “Where is he?”

One of Pelosi’s associates, Democrat Rep. Nita Lowey, clearly surprised by her colleague’s ridiculous antics, said, “What is she doing?”

It’s obvious that Woods is not the only one questioning Miss Pelosi’s mental health.

It’s doubtful that Pelosi intended this kind of publicity when she chose to roam the floor in search of the man who made her look bad, but it seems she did a pretty good job of doing that to herself.

Boehner Just Got What He Needed To Make Obama’s Life Miserable

Boehner Eyeing Obama

A proposal announced earlier this month by House Speaker John Boehner received overwhelming Republican support Wednesday in a vote that authorizes Congress to file a lawsuit against Barack Obama.

Although not a single Democrat voted for the resolution, it passed by vote of 225 to 201. As NBC News reported, the legislation does not require the support of the Democrat-controlled Senate. That fact did not stop Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid from weighing in on the development via Twitter.

Prior to the House vote, Obama called the initiative a “political stunt.”

Before presenting the measure for a vote, Boehner explained that his motivation is not based on partisanship.

“This isn’t about Republicans and Democrats,” he said, “it’s about defending the Constitution that we swore an oath to uphold.”

Boehner, who has publicly rejected calls for impeachment proceeding from many within his own party, has indicated that he believes this suit is the appropriate legislative step toward holding Obama accountable for unconstitutional use of executive power.

Rep. Paul Ryan, who does not feel Obama’s actions have risen to the impeachment threshold, has been a vocal supporter of Boehner’s plan. Even some who might otherwise favor impeachment have expressed concern that the Democrat Party would seize on any such proposal as a way to rally financial support ahead of the upcoming midterm elections.

Nevertheless, some Democrats in the House continue to assert that the suit might be a step in that direction.

“’Impeachment is off the table,’” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi stated prior to Wednesday’s vote. “Why hasn’t the speaker said that? Why are there those in your caucus who won’t deny that that is a possible end in sight for this ill-fated legislation?”

Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz released a statement defending his vote and the overall intent of the lawsuit.

“I feel a keen responsibility to preserve and maintain the balance of power laid out in the Constitution,” he asserted. “Ultimately, if successful, this action will restrain excesses by future presidents of both parties and restore the checks and balances that were so carefully constructed by this nation’s Founding Fathers.”

These Ranchers Just Gave Pelosi A Challenge She Shouldn’t Ignore If She Knows What Is Good For Her

Fred Davis and John Ladd

Two Arizona ranchers want Congress to wake up to the danger of illegal immigration along the southern border. And, they’re inviting Nancy Pelosi to come see for herself just how bad it is.

Ranchers Fred Davis and John Ladd say that lawmakers like Pelosi have no clue about how dangerous the situation has become.

“I want to invite Nancy Pelosi down,” Ladd said. “She went to Texas to see the kids. So come here and see where the dope and the bad guys are coming through the border.”

The ranchers even said that they will pay for the plane ticket for her to come down and offered their home as a place to stay while she is there so she can get a firsthand tour.

With all the talk about this crisis being a humanitarian one, the national media is forgetting that this is also a major security crisis.

“They are missing the point; this is a national security crisis, not a humanitarian crisis,” Davis told TheBlaze. “That’s a crock. Anytime people hear anything about amnesty, they flood our country, but we’re not enforcing the law – Border Patrol morale is low and there’s no security, making it dangerous for everyone.”

With the amount of drugs and illegal immigrants just funneling through the sieve of a border, Davis said, “Come see why your $2 million-per-mile fence is trash.”

In the video, you can see that the officials put in a makeshift barbed wire fence so poorly that the four strands can be held in one hand.

“My 8-year-old grandson could have put up that fence,” Davis told TheBlaze. “You can cut through it in less than 20 seconds with wire cutters.”

Chris Burgard, an award-winning filmmaker working with Davis and Ladd, is documenting the crisis along the border and summed the situation up with his own thoughts: “We’ve been doing this for over nine years. Anyone who tells you the southern border is secure is full of crap.”

WATCH: Nancy Pelosi May Never Recover After This Incredible Megyn Kelly Beatdown

Megyn Kelly Best

Megyn Kelly was on fire Thursday night when she responded to Nancy Pelosi’s comments made earlier that day on the SCOTUS Hobby Lobby decision. This is the essence of what the House Minority Leader had said, replayed on The Kelly File:

“We should be afraid of this court, that five guys [are] determining what contraceptives are legal or not.

That court decision was a frightening one that five men should get down to the specifics of whether a woman should use a diaphragm and she should pay for it herself or her boss. It’s not her boss’s business.”

Kelly’s response to Pelosi’s statement is priceless as she put Pelosi through the intellectual ringer. As IJReview noted, “This one was over before it started. Pelosi never had a chance.”

Here’s what the television host had to say:

“First of all, the gender of the justices in the Hobby Lobby majority is totally irrelevant. Miss Pelosi’s reference to it is obviously an attempt to stoke resentment. When Roe v. Wade was decided it was all men in the majority. Does Miss Pelosi think those justices were ill-equipped to fairly decide that case? Or is it only when a judge disagrees with Miss Pelosi that his gender is an issue?

If speaker John Boehner made a similar comment about the female Supreme Court justices, Nancy Pelosi would be crying ‘sexism,’ and that’s what she is guilty of here.

Moreover, the five men in the Hobby Lobby majority did not – I repeat, did not – ‘determine what contraceptives are legal,’ nor did they ‘get down to the specifics of whether a woman should use a diaphragm.’ What a gross misrepresentation.

News flash: all birth control that was legal before this decision remains legal today. The high Court simply found that a religious freedom law, which was co-sponsored by none other than – wait for it – Nancy Pelosi, sometimes protects corporations from being forced to violate their religious beliefs. She co-sponsored the law that gave them that right.”

She closed with this final punch.

“No one ruled those contraceptives were illegal, and the diaphragm was never even discussed. It wasn’t even one of the birth control forms at issue, which Miss Pelosi should really know since she famously promised us that after Obamacare was passed, at some point, we’d know what was in it.”

As always, Megyn Kelly knows how to win with class.

Kelly verses Pelosi, 1-0.
