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.

DeSantis Directs Secretary Of State To Investigate Facebook For Election Interference

Published

on

Facebook

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) has directed Florida Secretary of State Laurel M. Lee to investigate Facebook for alleged election interference after recent reports suggesting that Facebook impacted the results of state and local elections.

“I hereby direct that your office immediately investigate this alleged election interference caused by Facebook through its whitelisting program – and any other previously undisclosed program within Facebook – in order to determine whether any violations of Florida’s election laws took place,” DeSantis said in a letter to Lee. “Your office should use all legal means to uncover any such violations, including but not limited to, issuing subpoenas, conducting witness interviews, reviewing all available information and consulting with law enforcement.”

“The thought of technology companies clandestinely manipulating elections is an affront to the basic principles of our republic,” DeSantis added. “Floridians deserve to have faith that their elections are fair and free from intrusion by Big Tech monopolies like Facebook.”

DeSantis cited a recent report from the Wall Street Journal, which found that Facebook has a secret list of users that are not subject to Facebook’s content posting rules.

“According to a review of internal Facebook documents conducted by the Wall Street Journal, Facebook has created a shadow list of certain users who are immune from Facebook’s enforcement actions on posting content,” DeSantis wrote. “These elites – selected by Facebook behind closed doors – are able to post material without being subject to the opaque review process that normal users endure. This “whitelist” effectively creates two classes of speakers on Facebook’s platform: those who are privileged and those who are not.”

According to the Wall Street Journal report, “While the program included most government officials, it didn’t include all candidates for public office, at times effectively granting incumbents in elections an advantage over challengers. The discrepancy was most prevalent in state and local races, the documents show, and employees worried Facebook could be subject to accusations of favoritism.”

DeSantis’ office said in a press release, “If the Wall Street Journal report is accurate, Facebook has created a privileged class of speakers and has empowered them to manipulate our elections with impunity. Even more disturbing, these elite users on Facebook’s ‘whitelist’ were allegedly selected by the tech giant behind closed doors. The selection process, scope, and real-world influence of the whitelist is concealed from the public and known only to Facebook. If true, this process may have provided a benefit to incumbent elected politicians over their challengers in state and local elections.”

BLM Leader Vows to ‘Abolish’ NYC Mayor De Blasio’s Vax Passports

Says ‘Free Pass to Racism’,  ‘Modern-Day Freedom Papers’

Published

Chivona Newsome

New York Mayor Bill De Blasio’s vaccine mandates and consequential vaccine passports necessary to enter most bars and restaurants in the city are being dubbed racist by a Black Lives Matter leader.

Chivona Newsome co-founded the Greater New York Chapter of BLM and also ran as a congressional candidate in 2020 for New York’s 15th district sent a statement to Fox News explaining the claims of racism.

“Although Mayor Bill De Blasio ran on progressives values, nothing in his tenure will attest to his campaign promises,” Newsome stated. “The September 13th vaccine mandate is racist and specifically targets Black New Yorkers. The vaccination passports are modern-day Freedom Papers, which limit the free will of Black people.”

De Blasio’s mandates went into effect September 13, ordering indoor establishments making patrons show proof of vaccination before entering. Businesses can face fines up to $5,000 for not complying. On September 20, the Mayor’s office announced it had already issued 3,200 warnings to businesses in the first week.

Newsome continued, “The vaccination mandates infringe upon the civil liberties of the Black community…It’s more than where we can dine or enjoy entertainment, it will result in loss of income. As of Monday, September 27, Black health care workers and educators will lose their jobs.”

Newsome’s concerns for minorities and repercussions such as losing jobs is the same reasoning hundreds of groups and unions across the country have stood up against Biden’s vaccine mandate. Postal workers, Police unions, Nurse Unions and Hospital administrators are all amongst those expressing outrage.

Newsome says De Blasio’s actions are a direct attack on black Americans, and he “chose to disenfranchise and force the very people who elected him into poverty and second-class citizenship.”

She explained that de Blasio is, “fully aware of the hesitancy and distrust people of African descent have about vaccination and their interactions with government and law enforcement.” Newsome concluded, “the vaccination passport will not be a free pass to racism. Our organization pledges to demonstrate until the vaccine mandate is abolished.”
