COINCIDENCE? Pelosi’s husband invests big in Tesla right before Biden announced electric federal fleet

Did Pelosi have insider knowledge that Joe Biden was going to replace the government’s fleet with electric cars? 

Published

Last week, Joe Biden announced that the U.S. government will begin the process of shifting its vehicle fleet to electric. 

The government is indeed a major customer when it comes to the purchase of vehicles. So, replacing the fleet with American-produced electric vehicles will be costly and take time. Also, the market for electric vehicles is small: Tesla, General Motors and Nissan Motor are the only companies producing them domestically so far.

It remains unclear whether Biden’s plan involves plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, which use a combination of EV motors and traditional internal combustion engines. When discussing the plans, he referred to the new fleet being made up of electric vehicles “that are net zero emissions,” CNBC reports

But, questions are circulating about the timing of a large investment in Tesla made by none other than Nancy Pelosi’s husband, shortly before Biden’s announcement. 

Paul Pelosi, a multi-million dollar venture capitalist, reportedly purchased up to $1 million worth of stocks in Tesla when the price of the stock was about $640 a share, BizPacReview reports. Late last week, the stock’s price had risen nearly $200 a share, closing Thursday at $838. 

“Tesla stock has been a darling of Wall Street for years, and the company stands to reap huge profits if the federal government moves to an all-electric fleet, the Washington Times reports. 

According to a recent financial disclosure filed by the speaker, the couple made 25 stock moves, which are known as call options, allowing her to purchase Tesla at $500 per share up to March 2022. 

The invested amount? A whopping $1 million. 

Did Pelosi have insider knowledge that Joe Biden was going to replace the government’s fleet with electric cars? 

Or was it purely coincidence? 

It has long been a controversy whether lawmakers should be able to trade in the stock market. Currently, lawmakers are prohibited under the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge Act of 2012 from using non-public information to profit in the market – illegal insider trading. 

Sen. Elizabeth Warren also reintroduced additional legislation last month, including a ban on stock trades by Congress members, to combat the issue of insider trading, BizPacReview reports.

    In my opinion, pelosi had knowledge of what Biden was going to do. That is what you call insider trading and buying. People go to jail for this, pelosi and her husband ARE NOT ABOVE THE LAW. Warren is reintroducing additional legislation on the ban of stock trades by congress and the family members should be included.

      Congress is guilty of this practice; legal or not. At Polos’s age, she doesn’t need any more money except to give it to her kids and I’m sure they are stealing plenty on their own. Too bad they don’t believe in a DAY OF REKONING OR ATONEMENT. There will be weeping and wailing of teeth (never ending by the way )even with giving the Catholic Church plenty of taxpayer money. If killing the unborn child doesn’t bother her, nothing will.

    Pelosi and her so called husband should have been in prison years ago for all of their crimes. She loves to make rules up AFTER she has created criminal actions and gets away with it. How about the stimulis money obama did and Nancy and Paul got 200 million for their america somoa tuna cannery…….and she never gave the employees a cent for a raise. How about all the money she got and stole all the yrs she has been in congress and walked away scott free. She pretends well doesnt she! She belongs in the firing squad for treason.

‘Every Word Of This Is False’: Ted Cruz Factchecks Ilhan Omar’s Attack On Coach Kennedy Prayer Case

Published

on

Rep. Ilhan Omar

On Monday night, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) factchecked Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) after she made multiple false claims about the Supreme Court ruling in Kennedy v. Bremerton School District, in which the Court ruled 6-3 that a public high school football coach in Washington state had his First Amendment rights violated when he was punished by his school district for praying on the field after games where students could see.

As previously reported, “In 2008, high school football coach Joseph Kennedy began a tradition of praying at midfield after each game. Over time, his players and even members of the opposing team began to join him. In September 2015, a school administrator addressed the matter with Kennedy after an opposing team complained and the coach briefly stopped his prayers.”

“On October 14, 2015, Kennedy told the school district that he was planning on resuming his prayer tradition at the next game. The school district told the coach that his prayers violated the district’s policy, but Kennedy continued to pray at the next two games. The school district subsequently placed him on administrative leave, banned him from participating in the football program, and refused to renew his contract for the following season. Kennedy took the issue to federal district court, arguing that the school district had violated his First Amendment rights,” the report added.

In response to the Supreme Court ruling in favor of Kennedy, Omar tweeted, “The Supreme Court just ruled that public school teachers can pressure students to join in prayer at public school events but can also retaliate against those that don’t join in. Religious freedom is dead in America.”

“Every word of this is false,” Cruz responded.

Omar’s claim that the Supreme Court’s decision allowed to teachers to “pressure students to join prayer” is false. The Court’s ruling just protected Coach Kennedy’s religious freedom to pray publicly.

Omar was also incorrect in claiming that there would be retaliation against students who did not join Kennedy in prayer – the coach’s tradition of praying after games began with him praying alone at midfield after football games. Kennedy’s school district even noted that Kennedy had “not actively encouraged, or required, participation.”

Additionally, in contrast to Omar’s claim that “religious freedom is dead in America,” the Supreme Court ruling actually strengthened protections of religious freedom.

Writing for the majority opinion, Justice Neil Gorsuch explained, “Respect for religious expressions is indispensable to life in a free and diverse Republic—whether those expressions take place in a sanctuary or on a field, and whether they manifest through the spoken word or a bowed head.”

“Here, a government entity sought to punish an individual for engaging in a brief, quiet, personal religious observance doubly protected by the Free Exercise and Free Speech Clauses of the First Amendment,” Gorsuch added. “And the only meaningful justification the government offered for its reprisal rested on a mistaken view that it had a duty to ferret out and suppress religious observances even as it allows comparable secular speech. The Constitution neither mandates nor tolerates that kind of discrimination. Mr. Kennedy is entitled to summary judgment on his First Amendment claims.”
