Queen Pelosi’s Personal Airline: the U.S. Air Force

Democrats have consistently ridiculed and condemned Fortune 500 Companies and CEOs for use of their private jets and wasteful spending in hard economic times, but what about Nancy Pelosi?

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s business of running the U.S. House of Representatives not only gives her access to one jet, but a whole fleet of jets operated and ran by the Pentagon and the U.S. Air Force.

According to a report from Judicial Watch, Pelosi has repeatedly requested military aircraft to shuttle her, her colleagues and family around the country, and has been notorious for making special demands for high-end aircraft, lodging last-minute cancellations and racking up additional expenses for the military, all on the taxpayer’s dollar.

In one case Pelosi wanted to bring her husband along to a trip to Iraq . Pentagon officials had to remind Queen Pelosi that spouses are not allowed to go along on military trips.

In an email recovered with the help of a Freedom of Information Act request, Queen Pelosi’s aid Kay King writes: “It is my understanding there are NO G5s available for the House during the Memorial Day recess. This is totally unacceptable…The Speaker will want to know where the planes are.”

Let me translate: The Queen demands to know why there are NO G5s available for the Memorial Day recess. She wants to know where her G5s are at, and who is using them so she can decide whether or not their use is more important than her request.

Is she a public servant? Hardly… I used Queen Pelosi because that is the growing mindset of the political class in D.C. These people are our RULERS, elected yes, but still rulers. In their mindset we are here to provide for them provide a basis for their power.
