Pelosi. The Richest. Speaker. Ever.
Proud member of the Mainstream Media! ^ | October 11, 2006 | Don Surber

Posted on 10/13/2006 9:58:39 PM PDT by george76

If Democrats take over the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi will not just be the first female Speaker of the House.

She will be the richest.

By far.

The liberal Center for Responsive Politics pegs Pelosi's net worth as being somewhere between $14,746,108 and $55,085,000.

Gee, remember how libs got all over Gingrich for his $2 million book advance? Of course, no one said squat when Hillary took an $8 million book advance.

Pelosi and her husband have vast real estate holdings in San Francisco, where the liberals cry all the time for affordable housing for the working class.

That makes her the 9th richest member of the House.

Actually, I point all this out to show what a phony-baloney Pelosi is on the subject of "tax cuts for the rich." She is rich. To my knowledge, she never voluntarily paid a dime extra in federal income taxes.

UPDATE: Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid ranks 31st among senators with a net worth of $2,235,107 to $5,179,000.

Apparently Reid hung up the phone on an AP reporter when asked about, as AP put it, “a $1.1 million windfall on a Las Vegas land sale even though he hadn't personally owned the property for three years, property deeds show.”

It is an intriguing little story involving Reid’s old protege, Clark County Commission chairman Dario Herrara. Better make that ex-chairman. He was convicted in May. He was sentenced to 50 months.

Speaking of crooks (Herrera, not Reid) William Jefferson, D-La., ranked 149th among House members with a net worth of $842,006 to $1,730,000. Don’t know if that included his $90,000 in frozen assets.

Culture of corruption. Gotta remember that line.

If Republicans stay away from the election this November and allow Pelosi to become the Speaker of the House, they will allow a very dangerous person to be in too much power:

San Francisco's far-left Pelosi will lead Democrats in House
Human Events ^ | 18 November 2002 | John Gizzi


Posted on 10/14/2006 6:48:53 AM PDT by Grampa Dave


San Francisco's far-left Pelosi will lead Democrats in House by Gizzi, John

"It took 26 years for San Francisco Democrats to finally take over the party in the House. But they did it."

So says longtime Capitol Hill GOP operative Lawrence Casey about the election last week of far-left Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California as House minority leader.

Pelosi is the protege of the late, radical Democratic Rep. Phil Burton, whose district she inherited. The pivotal moment in Burton's career came in 1976, when he lost the race for House majority leader by one vote to Rep. Jim Wright (D.-Tex.), who went on, a decade later, to succeed the late Rep. Tip O'Neill (D.-Mass.) as speaker of the House. The outcome of that 1976 leadership race was a shock. Burton was a liberal icon and, as the late John Jacobs wrote in his much-praised biography of the Californian, A Rage for Justice, "Never before had anyone of the left combined Burton's ideological commitment, love of combat, and operational ability to get things done."

But the Democrats turned Burton back, Jacobs concluded, because they were obviously nervous about giving such a confrontational leftist such a high profile in their party. Wright, on the other hand, had a relatively conservative record that included opposition to civil rights and support for the Vietnam War and the oil depletion allowance.

But this time around, the Democrats have picked a confrontational leftist.

On November 14, with only a handful of votes cast for moderate Rep. Harold Ford, Jr. of Tennessee, the House Democrats picked the far left Pelosi to succeed Rep. Richard Gephardt (Mo.) as their leader.

The daughter of late Baltimore Mayor Thomas D'Alessandro, who also served in the House of Representatives, Pelosi has been involved in Democratic politics in San Francisco since moving to that city in the early 1960s as a young housewife and mother. With Burton's backing, she became state party chairman and finance chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. In a scene still described in San Francisco political circles, Pelosi got her congressional district in 1987 when an ailing Rep. Sala Burton, Phil's widow and successor, gave Pelosi her blessings from a hospital bed.

Rated a perfect 100% by the liberal Americans for Democratic Action and an anemic 4% from the American Conservative Union, the 62-year-old Pelosi has been predictably liberal on virtually ever major issue.

She opposed the Bush tax cuts and, on the campaign trail this fall, called for their repeal. She fought for the Clinton Administration's anti-business ergonomics rules, and against eliminating the death tax and any effort to decrease funding for the scandal-ridden National Endowment for the Arts. Pelosi even broke with Bill Clinton in 1996 when she joined about half the Democrats in the House to oppose eventual passage of the "tough love" welfare reform he signed into law.

Pelosi truly epitomizes the term "San Francisco Democrat." She backs abortion-on-demand, including partial-- birth abortions. She opposes a ban on human cloning and a ban on Food and Drug Administration funding for the abortion-inducing drug RU-486. But she is anti-choice when it comes to education and health care, voting against both school vouchers and Medical Savings Accounts.

She has voted against public display of the Ten Commandments and against a ban on the burning of the American Flag.

As congresswoman for San Francisco's heavily homosexual Castro District, Pelosi has long championed the agenda of the activist gay left As the Almanac of American Politics has noted, "On AIDS funding, Pelosi has used her Appropriations [Committee] seat to get money for victims and wants access to new therapies and drugs without regard to ability to pay; she got AIDS spending increased even in the Republican Congress" In September of last year, Pelosi backed an amendment to the District of Columbia appropriations bill that would have permitted the use of local funds to force the Boy Scouts of America to reinstate two gay leaders and compensate them with $50,000 each. (The measure was rejected by a vote of 243 to 173.) On July 13, 2000, she joined ten other House Democrats in signing a letter to President Clinton urging him to resign as honorary head of the Boy Scouts of America lest his office be seen "as giving implicit approval to this self-proclaimed intolerant policy [of excluding gays]."

At times, Pelosi's pro-homosexual activities go beyond simply voting. Much as mentor Burton became the highest elected official to ride in Gay Pride parades in San Francisco in the 1970s (when then-Mayor and now Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein declined to do so), Pelosi regularly appears and speaks at high-profile homosexual events. On June 27 of this year, for example, she rose on the House floor "in recognition of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender pride in San Francisco" to pay tribute to Officer Jon D. Cook, the first openly homosexual San Francisco policeman to lose his life in the line of duty. She commemorated Gay Pride Week on June 23, 1998, with a speech on the House floor calling on the Senate to confirm friend and avowed homosexual James Hormel as ambassador to Luxemburg, hailing Hormel as "a great American" and a "patriotic American."

The lone issue on which Pelosi sides with most conservatives is trade with Red China. She has long led opposition to Permanent Normal Trade Relations (PNTR) with Beijing and she offered amendments aimed at conditioning PNTR on human rights reforms. But many pundits and local politicians attribute this stance less to any passion against Communist tyranny than to the fact that her district is home to a large and well-heeled Chinese-American community.

Pelosi does not show the same concerns about human rights reforms in Fidel Castro's Cuba. She supported the unsuccessful amendment pushed by Rep. Charles Rangel (D.-N.Y) to lift the economic embargo on Cuba.

And, although last week she called on Democrats to stand "shoulder to shoulder" with President Bush on national security, the new House Democratic leader had only weeks ago voted against the resolution authorizing him to take action against Iraq.

It is not hyperbole to label the election of Nancy Pelosi as House minority leader a historic turning point for the Democratic Party. Where they just barely avoided the characterization of "San Francisco Democrat" on their national banner in 1976, last leek the Democrats in Congress heartily embraced it.

Pelosi does not allow union grape-pickers to work in her vast vineyards in California. Nor does she allow union workers to work in her chain of up-scale restaurants.

Caesar Chavez, the high Mucky-Muck of the grape-picker's union, lets Pelosi get away with her anti-union stand because she helps Chavez politically quid pro quid.

Would wealthy people be socialists if they too had to throw all of their wealth and possessions into a common pot, redistribute their own income, and live like they say everybody else should live? I don't think so.

In early 2004, according to Roll Call, Mr. Murtha "reportedly leaned on U.S. Navy officials to sign a contract to transfer the Hunters Point Shipyard to the city of San Francisco."

Laurence Pelosi, nephew of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, at the time was an executive of the company which owned the rights to the land.

You think that protestors outside nuclear power plants are dedicated activists, but protestors outside abortion clinics are dangerous zealots interfering with a legal activity.

You believe that even though the top 20 percent of taxpayers pay 80 percent of income taxes, that the rich are not paying their “fair share.”

You believe in global warming today just as firmly as you believed in global cooling back in the 1970s.

You have no problem with Hollywood movie stars flying around in private jets to give speeches on the evils of SUVs.

You deplore prejudice and bigotry in all its forms, but think that everyone in the “red states” is an idiot.

You are worried about how the French view Americans.

You believe that nativity scenes should be banned from public view...

Nancy Pelosi, her commitment to organized labor essentially ends when it comes to her own businesses. Nancy Pelosi and her husband own a Napa Valley vineyard...

They grow very expensive grapes for very expensive wines, and they don’t use members of the United Farm Workers to pick their grapes.

This winner of the Cesar Chavez award hires only non-union contractors.

Nancy Pelosi and her husband also own a chain of restaurants and a hotel in Napa Valley, California.

Despite her public commitment to the Hotel Employees & Restaurant Employees Union, you better not join that union and work for the Pelosi's, because you will end up getting fired.

Another big issue is the environment. She always makes statements that, with us, the environment is not an issue, it’s an ethic, it’s a value. Which is a nice way of saying, “I love the environment, but not when it comes to our own businesses.”

in 1996, Nancy Pelosi and her husband and fewer than 10 other partners wanted to build a golf course and country club outside of San Jose, California, called the CordeValle Country Club.

They never followed the environmental regulations. The ponds were never built for these endangered species. For seven years, they also failed to file any of the environmental reports required by the California Fish and Wildlife Commission.

A 2004 County Environmental Compliance Report found all kinds of environmental problems on the Pelosi's golf course.

What does that actually mean in practical terms? Did they turn around and build this habitat and comply?

No, they solved the problem the old-fashioned way: they hired lobbyists and they got the environmental regulations changed.

Rosie O'donnall insists we need all the guns put away in this country, but she has 5 or 6 body guards all armed to the teeth 24/7 for ''HER'' and ''HER'' kids. She insists she needs it, cause shes a ''national figure''! I live in Los Angeles, but go to San Francisco a lot, and if I ever run into that hag Pelosi, she will get as much respect from me as she's given my President for the last 6 years! AGAIN thanks!

· Staunch union supporter Rep. Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) has received the Cesar Chavez Award from the United Farmworkers Union. But the $25 million Northern California vineyard she and her husband own is a non-union shop.

The hypocrisy doesn't end there. Pelosi has received more money from the Hotel Employees and Restaurant Employees union than any other member of Congress in recent election cycles.

But the Pelosis own a large stake in an exclusive hotel in Rutherford, Calif. It has more than 250 employees.

But none of them are in a union, according to Schweizer, author of "The Bushes: Portrait of a Dynasty" and a regular contributor to the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and other periodicals.

The Pelosis are also partners in a restaurant chain called Piatti, which has 900 employees. The chain is - that's right, a non-union shop.

Yes,

politicans are for the most part, quite wealthy.

In the spirit of being against the hypocritical wealthy passing legislation that favors themselves, perhaps the best approach is to only vote for candidates who are in the same income group as us.

ok, they all make a lot more than me.

I guess I'll vote for my neighbor who is running for Township Trustee, he reflects my income level.

A lot of people don’t realize that, in 1996, Nancy Pelosi and her husband and fewer than 10 other partners wanted to build a golf course and country club outside of San Jose, California, called the CordeValle Country Club.

In order to get approval to build on these 275 acres, they had to comply with some very stringent county environmental regulations.

Now the California tiger salamander and the Western pond turtle are apparently endangered species and they’re very, very common on these 275 acres that the Pelosis wanted to develop.

So the agreement they struck with local regulators was, we’ll build the golf course, we’ll set up some holding ponds and we’ll create a natural habitat to make sure that these environmental endangered species survive.

Of course, they built the golf course. It opened in 2000. If you want to join, the membership is $250,000.

But they never followed the environmental regulations. The ponds were never built for these endangered species.

For seven years, they also failed to file any of the environmental reports required by the California Fish and Wildlife Commission.

A 2004 County Environmental Compliance Report found all kinds of environmental problems on the Pelosis’ golf course.

Remember with Nancy Pelosi, her commitment to the environment is not just an issue, it’s an ethic and a value. What does that actually mean in practical terms?

Did they turn around and build this habitat and comply? No, they solved the problem the old-fashioned way: they hired lobbyists and they got the environmental regulations changed.

So if you go to the CordeValle Country Club today and play golf, it’s a wonderful course, but there will be no holding ponds. There will be no endangered species and the Pelosis seem to be quite happy with that.

There are plenty of union contractors in Napa Valley and there are other wineries that use them, its’ just that the Pelosis don’t have happen to among them.

They also sell their grapes to non-union wineries.

They recently held investments in two other wine businesses that were also strictly non-union.

The Pelosis are also partners in a restaurant chain called Piatti, which has 900 employees.

The chain is - that's right, a non-union shop.
