"Investigative journalists doing their jobs should dig deep, into Pelosi's role in the controversial, $280-million, federal-funded Hunters Point Shipyard affair - in relation to her alleged role as an investor in a real estate investment called PRESIDIO PARTNERS.
Look past the fact that the 936-acre site, of which about 443 acres are not polluted - Hunter Point is the largest tract of undeveloped land in San Francisco.
Roll Call stated that in early 2004, Murtha reportedly leaned on U.S. Navy officials to sign a contract to transfer the Hunters Point Shipyard to the City of San Francisco and that Laurence Pelosi, nephew of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, at the time was an executive of the company which owned the rights of the land.
..only the most recent chapter of Nancy Pelosi, Murtha and San Francisco's largest tract of undeveloped land.
...critics clamoring that Pelosi is reneging on her pledge to clean up corruption by endorsing Murtha's bid for House Majority leader don't paint the whole picture.
In her own words on March 31, 2004: I have been working on this agreement for more than a decade, and I am proud we are near our goal. I thank Senators Feinstein and Boxer, Mayor Newsom, and former Mayor Willie Brown for their work on the Bayview Hunters Point Shipyard agreement. I also thank my good friend Congressman Jack Murtha for assisting us in this last round of negotiation.
Hunters Point Naval Shipyard has been a point of contention since my days as a San Francisco Supervisor, with all sides fighting over the level of contamination at the base and who will pay for cleanup. said Senator Dianne Feinstein. This agreement is a significant breakthrough, and signals an end to the bickering that has gone on for a quarter of a century."

Eminent Domain Abuse Watch
The latest Eminent Domain trial wraps up later today. A local government in southern California tried to use blight designations to seize swathes of property and hand them over to developers who plan to build luxury condos. One threatened property is a community boxing gym featured in an Institute for Justice video:

Eminent Domain Definition -
Government power to take private property for public use without the owner’s consent. Constitutional provisions in most countries, including the U.S. (in the 5th Amendment to the Constitution), require the payment of just compensation to the owner. As a power peculiar to sovereign authority and coupled with a duty to pay compensation, the concept was developed by such 17th-century natural-law jurists as Hugo Grotius and Samuel Pufendorf. See also confiscation.

This was a case of government representatives (Pelosi/Murthy et al) taking public property and giving it to a well-known communist foreigner for private use. One wonders how that works...
A History of Evil -
The rest of this excellent article -
“The National Park Service is actively seeking ideas for programs and tenants at this spectacular site. Last month, former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev visited the presidio to propose that the Gorbachev Foundation/use be located at the Presidio when the army leaves. In his words, it is wonderful and symbolic that a military base is being converted for use by the people’.
As the cold war ends, Pelosi continued, it is, indeed, fitting that this army garrison—one of the oldest in the United States—will be transformed to a monument to peace, environmental preservation and recreation as a global park.
Less than a year after Pelosi’s fawning words, Gorbachev and his American pre-funded $3.5-million Gorbachev Foundation moved into new a white, shingled bayfront house at the historic Presidio overlooking the Golden Bridge.
Next, avowed Communist Gorbachev brought his State of the Art Forum to the Presidio.
Co-chairs of the forum include pretend Republican James Baker 111. Baker served in the Reagan Administration as Treasury Secretary.
The politically avant-garde poo-pooh detractors who point out that Gorbachev has never renounced communism.
In 1989, Gorbachev told the Politburo: Gentlemen, comrades, do not be concerned about all you hear about glasnost and perestroika and democracy in the coming years. These are primarily for outward consumption. There will be no significant change within the Soviet Union, other than for cosmetic purposes. Our aim is to disarm the Americans and let them fall asleep.
Canadian environmental guru Maurice Strong and Gorbachev are co-architects of the Earth Charter, which both arrogantly boast is a replacement for the Ten Commandments of Moses.
As the song says, House Speaker-designate Nancy Pelosi has come a long way, Baby. Her long climb to the top came courtesy of two anti-Americans global Pooh-bahs.
`San Francisco’s Nanny was a useful tool for UN heavy Maurice Strong and one of Mikhail Gorbachev’s most useful idiots.”

that woman is so elitist she doesn’t even think this is corruption. It’s just daily business.
Somewhere out there are ‘little people’ who pay for it all but they are like dimwitted subhuman dwarves who work underground somewhere out of sight.
