The insufferable Nancy Pelosi strikes again, proving just how deranged and hypocritical the Democrat Party truly is.
According to a startling new report, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has used more than $500,000 in taxpayer dollars on private jets — since 2020! In just two years, the so-called climate change activist has blown nearly a million dollars on lucrative travel and jet fuel while simultaneously advocating for radical environmental spending.
“According to campaign filings with the Federal Election Commission, Pelosi’s campaign paid a Virginia-based private aviation provider, Advanced Aviation Team, over $437,000 between October 2020 and December 2021 and over $65,000 to Clay Lacy Aviation, a California-based private jet provider,” Fox News reported on Monday.
Pelosi, who will run for re-election again this year at age 82, lead a 21-member congressional delegation to the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Glasgow, Scotland in November, where she said: “For me, it’s a religious thing. I believe this is God’s creation, and we have a moral obligation to be good stewards.”
“We must face the existential threat of our time: the climate crisis,” Pelosi said in January 2019 in her opening address to Congress.

Last year, Pelosi treated 13 of her fellow Democrats to a gas-guzzling private travel experience to a climate change summit in Glasgow, Scotland. You really can’t make this up!
The conference, which drew 25,000 people and 1,500 journalists, sought to “place financial penalties on global commercial aviation to stop people flying and making ‘unnecessary contributions to atmospheric carbon dioxide pollution.”

In January 2019, then-President Donald Trump denied Pelosi’s request to use a military aircraft for a congressional delegation trip to Afghanistan, which prompted further investigation into the House Speaker’s private travel habits.
Through Freedom of Information Act requests we learned that Pelosi has made a long habit of using military jets for personal travel.
According to the report:
“In 2010, Pelosi’s jet travel cost the Air Force $2,100,744.59 over a two-year period — $101,429.14 of which was for in-flight expenses, including food and alcohol.”
During the administration of George W. Bush, Pelosi requested regular access to an Air Force passenger jet, but that created a debate over whether she would get the large aircraft she wants and who she may take as passengers.
Democrats, behold! Your leader in the fight for climate change!
