New footage appeared on social media Monday allegedly showing Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi addressing a crowd at a lavish Napa Valley fundraiser, delivering her address mask-free despite California’s strict COVID advisories.
“Speaker Pelosi wants to lock you down again while she wines and dines with her political donors. It’s utter hypocrisy,” posted House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy on Twitter.

Pelosi made national headlines last week when she largely dismissed thousands of pieces of US-made military equipment falling into the hands of the Taliban.
“This is what happens when you withdraw,” Pelosi said in an interview with KPIX 5 News Tuesday. “Some stuff is left there. It was thought that would be used. It was hoped that would be used by the Afghan military to defend its own country.”
“The fact that it did not and could not,” Pelosi added, “was all more the reason for us to leave.”
The United States Ambassador to the United Nations weighed in this week on the unfolding chaos in Afghanistan, saying the UN Security Council issued a “very strongly worded press statement” that the Taliban must respect human rights.
“We have expressed in no uncertain terms, here in the United Nations, through a very strongly worded press statement from the Security Council that we expect the Taliban to respect human rights, including the rights of women and girls,” said Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield.

FANCY NANCY BACKS MAD MAXINE: ‘I Don’t Think She Should Apologize’
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi defended Rep. Maxine Waters Monday when the far-left lawmaker faced a growing backlash after telling demonstrators in Minnesota to “get more confrontational.”
“No, she doesn’t,” said Pelosi when asked by a reporter if the California Congresswoman should apologize for her remarks.
“Maxine talked about confrontation in the manner of the civil rights movement,” added the Speaker. “I myself think we should take our lead from the George Floyd family. They’ve handled this with great dignity and no ambiguity or lack of — misinterpretation by the other side. No, I don’t think she should apologize.”
“No, absolutely not,” she concluded when pressed on whether the comments could incite violence.

Waters is now facing formal action from Republicans this week after she allegedly “incited violence” during an anti-police protests outside Minneapolis.
Democrats actively encouraging riots & violence.
They want to tear us apart.
“'We gotta stay on the street,' Waters was recorded saying, adding that protesters needed 'to get more confrontational' & they should ignore the curfew in place.” https://t.co/PWW7YNDbKR

Maxine Waters is inciting violence in Minneapolis — just as she has incited it in the past. If Speaker Pelosi doesn’t act against this dangerous rhetoric, I will bring action this week.

Waters faced a growing backlash from Republicans over the weekend after she told demonstrators in Minnesota to “get more confrontational” and show America “we mean business.”
“We’ve got to stay on the street and we’ve got to get more active, we’ve got to get more confrontational. We’ve got to make sure that they know that we mean business,” the Congresswoman told protesters outside Minneapolis when asked to comment on a potential not-guilty verdict in the trial of Derek Chauvin.
“We cannot go away!” she added.
The Radical Left don’t care if your towns are burning, if there’s violence in your streets, or if the police are too defunded to defend their communities.
As long as the Left appeases their anti-America base, their job is done.https://t.co/bmBJEsrCdn

“Telling rioters who have burned buildings, looted stores, and assaulted journalists to get ‘more confrontational’ is incredibly irresponsible. Every House Democrat should condemn Maxine Waters’ call for violence,” National Republican Congressional Committee spokesman Mike Berg told Fox News.
Why is Maxine Waters traveling to a different state trying to incite a riot? What good can come from this? https://t.co/nXzV0trmN3

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi continued to attack President Trump’s response to the Coronavirus pandemic this week; ignoring her previous comments from just weeks ago when she declared “all is well!”
“Everything is fine,” she said. “All is well.” “Come to Chinatown… We just want everybody not to be afraid to come to Chinatown.”

Pelosi was left speechless Friday when asked why her party is opposing emergency relief for small businesses; launching an incoherent rant about Sen. Mitch McConnell and local hospitals.
“Can you explain to those small businesses? They now feel that they’re in limbo and don’t understand why you’d be refusing this money now?” asked a reporter from C-SPAN.
“Well…. the… um… It’s clear, to my understanding…. When we talk to McConnell, he says we should do some of that, but he says let’s see how the money out there is working for local hospitals before we do more… but let’s not see how things are working… with small businesses,” responded Pelosi.
