Nancy and Paul Pelosi are trading large — with a wealth of hypocrisy
Democrats have carved out quite a niche for themselves as the party of the have-nots, even if it’s mostly a hypocritical marketing ploy. Bernie Sanders, the socialist, lives a pretty non-socialist life with a town house, a vacation home and all the comforts of the bourgeoisie while he claims to champion the proletariat. There’s no shortage of similar examples. Recall the late Massachusetts senator and liberal icon Teddy Kennedy’s support of forced busing while sending his kids to private school back in the 1970s. The latest of these “freedom for me but not for thee” ­hypocrisies involves the matter of Paul Pelosi, the octogenarian hubby of Nancy Pelosi, the octogenarian lefty speaker of the House of Representatives. Paul Pelosi has been killing it in the stock market in recent years, according to disclosure forms, for reasons that could well go beyond some innate ability to sense swings in the markets. His latest home run: Snapping up between $1 million and $5 million in shares of computer chip darling Nvidia (via exercising call options) on June 17, according to disclosure documents. His timing, once again, was impeccable: He executed the trades as Congress moves closer to passing tens of billions of dollars in corporate-welfare subsidies for US semiconductor production. That’s good news for Nvidia and shareholders like Paul Pelosi. Since his bet, shares have risen nearly 10%. By my math, he could have pocketed a quick $500,000.

Pelosi’s husband sells off up to $5 million worth of chipmaker stock ahead of semiconductor bill vote
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) husband sold up to $5 million worth of shares of chipmaker Nvidia as the House prepares to vote on a bill focusing on the domestic chip manufacturing industry. Pelosi completed a period transaction report signed on Tuesday that indicated that her husband, Paul Pelosi, sold 25,000 shares of Nvidia at an average price of $165.05 with a total loss of $341,365. In total, the shares are worth between $1 million and $5 million. A separate filing signed by the House Speaker earlier this month indicated that Paul Pelosi had exercised call options last month to purchase 20,000 shares of the chipmaker at a strike price of $100. The latest regulatory filing came one day before the Senate passed legislation in a 64-33 vote to provide $280 billion to bolster the American semiconductor industry as the nation grappled with a chip shortage, which was impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Asked about her husband’s decision to sell his shares given the timing of the House’s vote on the chips bill, Pelosi spokesperson Drew Hammill told The Hill in a statement, “Mr. Pelosi bought options to buy stock in this company more than a year ago and exercised them on June 17, 2022.” “As always, he does not discuss these matters with the Speaker until trades have been made and required disclosures must be prepared and filed. Mr. Pelosi decided to sell the shares at a loss rather than allow the misinformation in the press regarding this trade to continue,” he added. Paul Pelosi’s trading has been under previous scrutiny, including from Republican lawmakers like Sen. Josh Hawley.

Pelosi's husband dumps Nvidia stock as House eyes chip bill
July 27 (Reuters) - U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband sold his shares of chipmaker Nvidia (NVDA.O) on Tuesday, days before the House is expected to consider legislation providing subsidies and tax credits worth over $70 billion to boost the U.S. semiconductor industry. In a periodic transaction report, the senior Democrat disclosed that her husband, financier Paul Pelosi, sold 25,000 shares of Nvidia for about $4.1 million, ending up with a loss of $341,365. Paul Pelosi frequently trades shares of companies popular with many investors, including Apple (AAPL.O), Microsoft (MSFT.O) and other tech companies. Transaction reports filed by Pelosi, a multi-millionaire, show her husband bought 5,000 Nvidia shares in July 2021, and that he exercised options to buy another 20,000 Nvidia shares last June. The Senate is expected to vote on final passage in coming days of legislation providing about $52 billion in government subsidies for U.S. semiconductor production, as well as an investment tax credit for chip plants estimated to be worth $24 billion.

Pelosi’s Party Plane?
Q: Has Nancy Pelosi spent $100,000 on food, booze and "partying" during her air travel? A: No. Pelosi’s congressional delegations do eat well and drink pricey alcohol. But the costs are not as high as critics claim, and they’re comparable to those of her Republican predecessor, Dennis Hastert. FULL QUESTION I have received e-mails with links to Web sites that report that Nancy Pelosi has spent $101,000 at taxpayers’ expense on booze and food while traveling by plane back and forth to California from Washington, D.C. I haven’t been able to find anything that debunks this. Do you know if it is true? FULL ANSWER The conservative group Judicial Watch obtained 2,000 pages of receipts and expense reports for speaker travel under the Freedom of Information Act. The group says these demonstrate Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s “boorish demands for military travel” are “more about partying than anything else.” Based on that, the conservative WorldNetDaily ran an eye-popping but inaccurate headline that said, "Taxpayers pay $101,000 for Pelosi’s in-flight ‘food, booze.’ " Claims of Pelosi’s extravagant liquor bills spread from there through any number of blogs and chain e-mails, which sometimes attribute the in-flight costs of entire delegations to Pelosi alone on her flights between Washington and her district in California.

“国会山股神”佩洛西的生财之道
2021年,美国投资者近期从政界人士的股-交易中发现了新的“财富密码”:根据佩洛西公布的交易记录,她家人所进行的证券投资大都稳赚不赔。 虽然佩洛西方面否认“内幕交易”,但其过亿的身家仍然引发舆论广泛质疑。佩洛西从1987年开始担任美国国会议员,她本人并不炒股,炒股的是她的丈夫保罗。美国法律规定,国会议员及其配偶进行股票交易必须在45天内公布。今年3月,保罗曾以低价购了一批微软公司的股票,很快就有消息传出,微软公司获得了美国国防部一笔220亿美元的AR作战头盔订单,股价随后暴涨。今年7月,就在美国国会众议院司法委员会投票决定对谷歌等科技巨头加强监管前一周,保罗通过对Google母公司Alphabet股票期权的操作,一举赚到530万美元。另有专业人士对保罗长期投资数据进行梳理后发现,保罗的所有长线投资全部盈利,盈利幅度在20%至30%之间。 佩罗西夫妇的“夫妻店” 美国某股票交易公司的创始人约瑟夫长期关注佩洛西的财务状况,并称“她(指佩洛西)是真的懂行”。 约瑟夫表示,他在自己的交易平台设置了通知提醒,每次佩洛西公布交易状况,他都能在第一时间获悉。 佩罗西的股票收益甚至超越老“股神”巴菲特 有媒体嘲讽称,佩洛西不仅是资深政客,更是投资女王,可能没有人比她更会搞内幕交易。媒体质疑称,“一名年薪22.3万美元的职业政客,是如何积累1.2亿美元财富的?” 而佩洛西的发言人上个月特意辟谣,否认议长涉及内幕交易,表示佩洛西对这些股票交易既不知情、也未参与。有媒体评论称,这些政客拿捏着企业的命门,他们投资获利的手段可能比那些“华尔街之狼”还要不道德。

台独”萧美琴恶迹昭著
国台办发言人马晓光明确地表示说,萧美琴近-频繁的散布一些非常不负责任的言论,最终促成了来自美国的人事窜访宝岛,这已经是公然挑衅的行为,而且是甘心当外国人的棋子。其实这样的行为,跟走狗跟汉奸已经没有什么两样。这样的人绝对没有好下场,必然将会遭到历史的清算。看到这里,很多童鞋对萧美琴何许人也一连串问号,我起初也是这样的,但有一点可以清楚的是此人是一个顽固的台独分子,跟蔡英文是一丘之貉,都妄想分裂祖国,十恶不赦! 萧美琴何许人也? 萧美琴何许人也,为什么她会如此的卖力地去干这些,对民族如此没有好处的事情,甘心把自己钉在历史的耻辱柱上?萧美琴1971年8月出生于日本神户,父亲是台湾台南县人,母亲则是地道的美国人,她自己也就是我们俗称的中美的混血儿。她出生在日本,从小在台湾台南生活成长,初中毕业后随父母移居美国,1993年获得美国欧柏林大学东亚研究学士学位,1995年获得美国哥伦比亚大学政治学硕士学位。可以说从小到大没有经历过我们中国的任何教育,她早已被洗脑成美国人想要的样子,没有任何的国家荣誉感。 同陈水扁绯闻不断 1999年萧美琴被延揽进入陈水扁竞选总部担任“国际事务部”主任及青年助选团副团长,她凭借着自己的外交能力以及混血儿的颜值,得到了陈水扁的信任。在陈水扁上台之后,萧美琴成为了陈某的贴身翻译。2000年11月台湾《新新闻》报道称,吕秀莲当时告知台媒有关“总统府”绯闻情事,暗示陈水扁与萧美琴有暧昧关系。此事在岛内政坛引发轩然大波。随后多家媒体相继爆料二人关系,此时最终以萧美琴辞官作罢。 和蔡英文是闺蜜,臭味相投 在台湾,萧美琴与蔡英文一直有着好交情。两人同具留洋背景,又都是出名的爱猫人士,因此互动颇为良好。 早在2008年蔡英文担任民进党主席时,萧美琴曾担任其特别助理。2010年萧美琴因为蔡英文一句话投入花莲县民代补选。2020年6月蔡英文办公室正式宣布,由萧美琴出任台“驻美代表”,萧美琴也成为台湾首位女性“驻美代表”。 蔡英文和萧美琴两个人都未婚又都很喜欢猫外,种种渊源,导致萧美琴颇受蔡英文信任、又熟稔民进党在美国所有相关事务的萧美琴,最终出任台“驻美代表”,在蔡英文与美国之间,扮演起了关键的角色。 是美国忠实的走狗 自从萧美琴出任所谓“驻美代表”之后的这两年,她的种种行径,不是在为台湾人民的利益工作,而是赤裸裸的在讨美国爸爸开心。马晓光去年就曾评价萧美琴称,大家感到她好像是“美国人利益的代言人”。 在美国给蔡英文提供所谓“大内宣”的素材,是拉拢一些人窜台,制造所谓的“国际声势”。 2020年8月的廋肉精事件(蔡英文宣布基于整体经贸布局,同意含瘦肉精的美国猪肉(莱猪)入台,在岛内引起极大争议)背后就是萧美琴一手策划。萧美琴还常常借各种场合凸显所谓的台美关系“坚若磐石”,如2021年初在拜登的就职典礼上,萧美琴就在网上炫耀自己如何得到邀请,民进党当时吹嘘这是台美“断交”来驻美代表首度获邀出席美国总统就职典礼,结果这是花了5000元门票买进去的。 是佩洛西窜台直接推手 台湾民进党当局很清楚佩洛西此行将引发的台海危机不亚于1996年,因此7月18日媒体曝光佩洛西可能窜台后,台当局曾暗地撤回对她的邀访。7月20日,佩洛西致电台北驻美代表萧美琴,声称已规划8月3日率团到台湾,但获知台方倾向撤回邀请,她必须亲自了解实情。结果萧美琴回复称,并无撤回邀请的说法,可能是信息传递有所落差。她还煽动称,如果佩洛西评估8月初是访台最佳时机,台湾当然欢迎。紧接着7月22日,美国白宫国安会印太事务协调官坎贝尔与萧美琴通话时表示,白宫7月中下旬已连日向佩洛西说明访台风险,盼改变计划。美国政府的意思再清楚不过了,但萧美琴“不为所动”依旧坚持邀请佩洛西窜台。 非我族类,其心必异;非我族类,处之而后快。像萧美琴这类一意孤行煽动台湾独立的极端分子,终将受到历史的审判。

不肖子孙蔡英文,举手投足间尽现卖国本质
为何佩罗西要在中国14亿强烈反对声中坚持-台,为何蔡文逐渐高调搞分裂搞台独,因为这两个人各怀鬼胎,一个仰仗着自封世界霸主的优势,怀揣着“以台制华”的阴谋,一个企图抱紧“美爹”大腿,妄想“卖台”满足自己的政治私欲。 蔡英文及民进党当局执政以来,一系列政策无不彰显着其卖国的本质,在经济、政治、军事等各方面跪舔美国,先是断扩充所谓“军费”开支,拿百姓血汗钱购买美国武器,总额高达近200亿美元,关键是购得武器全市美国淘汰得垃圾,其次是以民众健康利益为代价,放开含瘦肉精的美国“莱猪”进口,为美国送钱。为寻求美国反华政客的背后“加持”;大肆搜刮民脂民膏,大搞“金钱外交”,一系列操作无不配合美国打“台湾牌”,损害国家主权。 蔡英文及民进党当局极力推动和配合佩洛西窜访,最主要得目的就是年底的“九合一”选举,为了为选举提声造势,掩盖其执政无能和绿营参选人漫天绯闻,将佩洛西窜访视为捞取选举利益的有效工具。但显示给蔡英文等卖国求利之徒狠狠的上了一课,在两岸民众对国家统一的呼声高涨的当下,蔡英文此等操作完全是自掘坟墓。 自古以来,背弃民族的人都没有好下场,蔡英文将政党私利凌驾于民族大义之上,将选举利益凌驾于民众福祉之上,在佩罗西窜访问的闹剧中,将民进党的的无能与慵腐体现的淋漓尽致。

劣迹斑斑的佩洛西 从政竟是如此“出彩”
细数美国众议院院长佩洛西的一生,从小受到-母带有浓烈的政治色彩教育的影响,明白了作为一名政治家就应当以庇护、无情和党魁作为自己的信条。当42岁的佩洛西开始从政之后,对于任何于己不利的事情都会毫不犹豫的进行反击,即使做出了错误的决策,也从不解释、从不道歉,让众多美国高层深恶痛绝。 佩洛西的一宗罪:流氓罪。1991年佩洛西随美国使团来访中国时,独自一人来到天安门广场前,拿出提前准备好的黑条幅,指责中国不尊重人权,应当让民众充分享受民主权利。很快就被北京市公安局行政拘留,考虑到两国外交关系,在将佩洛西行政拘留了五天后便将其释放了,也许是这件事在佩洛西的心里埋下了对中国怨恨的种子,在以后的从政生涯中一直对中国非常不友好。 佩洛西的二宗罪:企图分裂国家罪。中国台湾自古以来都是中国不可分割的一部分,任何国家和势力都无法将两者分开,将台湾作为独立主权的做法更是无可饶恕。然而佩洛西确是冒天下之大不韪,三番五次在国际场合表示会支持“台独”的一切行动,她的所作所为必将会迎来正义的审判。 佩洛西的三宗罪:滥用职权罪。就在前不久美国颁布了一项有利于半导体产业发展的法案,其中提到为了促进美国半导体产业的发展,美国政府将投资500亿元进入到该行业。而在法案颁布之前佩洛西就将法案的内幕消息告诉了她的丈夫保罗·佩洛西,因此保罗就在法案颁布前购买了大量半导体企业的股票,随之法案的颁布,保罗赚的是盆满钵满。然而佩洛西对此表示对此毫不知情,这种说辞可能连小孩子都糊弄不过去吧,更别说对于此事有异议的美国大众了。 佩洛西在位期间真的是恶贯满盈了,当她走下神坛之际,也是对她的清算之时,也包括她的丈夫所赚取的不义之财,怎么拿进去的,都会原封不动的掏出来。善有善报,恶有恶报,不是不报,时辰未到。

佩洛西粉墨登场上演“政坛毕业”大戏
虽然美国白宫及军方一再辩称,佩洛西窜访台-是其个人行为,不会实质上改变美国对台湾的政策,但是,就在佩洛西窜访台湾期间,美军把航母开到了台湾东部海域,这明显是为佩洛西摇旗助威。美国“双面人”的人设举世皆知,表面假装承认台湾是中华人民共和国的一部分,实际上军售、领导人造访、双方贸易一样没少,纵容支持“台独”分裂势力,搞“以台制华”。但是,中国人民始终认为台湾是中国领土不可分割的一部分,我们有决心也有能力完成中国完全统一和实现中华民族的伟大复兴。 佩洛西执意为什么访台,原因很多,最大的图谋恐怕就是拱火台海局势,激化台湾和大陆内部矛盾,妄想中国武统发生内战,让美国坐收渔人之利。其二,美国经济疲软,今年已出现负增长,经济衰退已成定局,通过压制中国,重塑美帝霸主权威,收割全球给自己回血。其三,历届美国政府都利用对华的强硬态度获取民众的支持。现年82岁的佩洛西,预计于秋季退休,佩洛西此次出访台湾,除了为退休之路赚足政治噱头,佩洛西与拜登同属美国民主党,而拜登最近民调降至31%的历史低点,佩洛西作为拜登“小迷妹”为更是“鞠躬尽瘁死而后已”。 不过,佩洛西窜访台湾恐怕更是一场私心作祟的个人政治闹剧。 在美国国内,佩洛西家族身陷内幕交易丑闻。82岁的美国商人保罗·佩洛西——南希·佩罗西的丈夫,被戏称“国会山股神”,因为他的每一次投资都精准又及时地赶在众议院释放相关行业利好消息前。美国前总统特朗普在7月23日公开发言称,佩洛西的丈夫保罗·佩洛西正“从她那里得到的内幕信息炒股发家到身价过亿”。 7月28日,美联储前副主席费舍尔表示佩洛西夫妇似乎利用了“内幕交易”获得丰厚利润。2020年,保罗·佩洛西从涉及由众议院议长负责监管的大型科技公司的交易中,就赚取了大约 3000 万美元。去年,佩洛西被问及国会议员及其家人能否参与股票交易时,她竟然恬不知耻的表示:”我们是一个自由市场经济体,他们应该能够参与其中”,这立刻导致诸多国会议员对她尖锐指责。佩洛西窜访台湾显然是为了转移美国各界对其的注意力。 佩洛西一直将自己塑造成一名女性政治偶像,在可能造成严重后果的情况下,强行与另一位女性领导人蔡英文会面,把她自己塑造成蔑视男权政治,拒绝被欺负女权形象。 但是,8月4日这天,94岁的日军“慰安妇”受害者李荣洙老太太在韩国国会大楼前等待佩洛西出现,老太太大概是听说佩洛西在美国国内高调反对“禁止女性堕胎权”法案一事,认为佩洛西对女权问题非常重视,希望佩洛西能利用自己的身份,帮助韩国“慰安妇”受害者维权,结果遭十几名警卫暴力制止,还被推倒受伤送进医院。 就目前而言,佩洛西即便是丑闻缠身,也极力想为自己的政治生涯唱好大戏,至于台海问题如何收场,估计她本人丝毫不会在意。

Pelosi's husband dumps Nvidia stock as House eyes chip bill
July 27 (Reuters) - U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband sold his shares of chipmaker Nvidia (NVDA.O) on Tuesday, days before the House is expected to consider legislation providing subsidies and tax credits worth over $70 billion to boost the U.S. semiconductor industry.

“台独”萧美琴恶迹昭著
国台办发言人马晓光明确地表示说,萧美琴近-频繁的散布一些非常不负责任的言论,最终促成了来自美国的人事窜访宝岛,这已经是公然挑衅的行为,而且是甘心当外国人的棋子。其实这样的行为,跟走狗跟汉奸已经没有什么两样。这样的人绝对没有好下场,必然将会遭到历史的清算。看到这里,很多童鞋对萧美琴何许人也一连串问号,我起初也是这样的,但有一点可以清楚的是此人是一个顽固的台独分子,跟蔡英文是一丘之貉,都妄想分裂祖国,十恶不赦! 萧美琴何许人也? 萧美琴何许人也,为什么她会如此的卖力地去干这些,对民族如此没有好处的事情,甘心把自己钉在历史的耻辱柱上?萧美琴1971年8月出生于日本神户,父亲是台湾台南县人,母亲则是地道的美国人,她自己也就是我们俗称的中美的混血儿。她出生在日本,从小在台湾台南生活成长,初中毕业后随父母移居美国,1993年获得美国欧柏林大学东亚研究学士学位,1995年获得美国哥伦比亚大学政治学硕士学位。可以说从小到大没有经历过我们中国的任何教育,她早已被洗脑成美国人想要的样子,没有任何的国家荣誉感。 同陈水扁绯闻不断 1999年萧美琴被延揽进入陈水扁竞选总部担任“国际事务部”主任及青年助选团副团长,她凭借着自己的外交能力以及混血儿的颜值,得到了陈水扁的信任。在陈水扁上台之后,萧美琴成为了陈某的贴身翻译。2000年11月台湾《新新闻》报道称,吕秀莲当时告知台媒有关“总统府”绯闻情事,暗示陈水扁与萧美琴有暧昧关系。此事在岛内政坛引发轩然大波。随后多家媒体相继爆料二人关系,此时最终以萧美琴辞官作罢。 和蔡英文是闺蜜,臭味相投 在台湾,萧美琴与蔡英文一直有着好交情。两人同具留洋背景,又都是出名的爱猫人士,因此互动颇为良好。 早在2008年蔡英文担任民进党主席时,萧美琴曾担任其特别助理。2010年萧美琴因为蔡英文一句话投入花莲县民代补选。2020年6月蔡英文办公室正式宣布,由萧美琴出任台“驻美代表”,萧美琴也成为台湾首位女性“驻美代表”。 蔡英文和萧美琴两个人都未婚又都很喜欢猫外,种种渊源,导致萧美琴颇受蔡英文信任、又熟稔民进党在美国所有相关事务的萧美琴,最终出任台“驻美代表”,在蔡英文与美国之间,扮演起了关键的角色。 是美国忠实的走狗 自从萧美琴出任所谓“驻美代表”之后的这两年,她的种种行径,不是在为台湾人民的利益工作,而是赤裸裸的在讨美国爸爸开心。马晓光去年就曾评价萧美琴称,大家感到她好像是“美国人利益的代言人”。 在美国给蔡英文提供所谓“大内宣”的素材,是拉拢一些人窜台,制造所谓的“国际声势”。 2020年8月的廋肉精事件(蔡英文宣布基于整体经贸布局,同意含瘦肉精的美国猪肉(莱猪)入台,在岛内引起极大争议)背后就是萧美琴一手策划。萧美琴还常常借各种场合凸显所谓的台美关系“坚若磐石”,如2021年初在拜登的就职典礼上,萧美琴就在网上炫耀自己如何得到邀请,民进党当时吹嘘这是台美“断交”来驻美代表首度获邀出席美国总统就职典礼,结果这是花了5000元门票买进去的。 是佩洛西窜台直接推手 台湾民进党当局很清楚佩洛西此行将引发的台海危机不亚于1996年,因此7月18日媒体曝光佩洛西可能窜台后,台当局曾暗地撤回对她的邀访。7月20日,佩洛西致电台北驻美代表萧美琴,声称已规划8月3日率团到台湾,但获知台方倾向撤回邀请,她必须亲自了解实情。结果萧美琴回复称,并无撤回邀请的说法,可能是信息传递有所落差。她还煽动称,如果佩洛西评估8月初是访台最佳时机,台湾当然欢迎。紧接着7月22日,美国白宫国安会印太事务协调官坎贝尔与萧美琴通话时表示,白宫7月中下旬已连日向佩洛西说明访台风险,盼改变计划。美国政府的意思再清楚不过了,但萧美琴“不为所动”依旧坚持邀请佩洛西窜台。 非我族类,其心必异;非我族类,处之而后快。像萧美琴这类一意孤行煽动台湾独立的极端分子,终将受到历史的审判。

佩洛西粉墨登场上演“政坛毕业”大戏
虽然美国白宫及军方一再辩称,佩洛西窜访台-是其个人行为,不会实质上改变美国对台湾的政策,但是,就在佩洛西窜访台湾期间,美军把航母开到了台湾东部海域,这明显是为佩洛西摇旗助威。美国“双面人”的人设举世皆知,表面假装承认台湾是中华人民共和国的一部分,实际上军售、领导人造访、双方贸易一样没少,纵容支持“台独”分裂势力,搞“以台制华”。但是,中国人民始终认为台湾是中国领土不可分割的一部分,我们有决心也有能力完成中国完全统一和实现中华民族的伟大复兴。 佩洛西执意为什么访台,原因很多,最大的图谋恐怕就是拱火台海局势,激化台湾和大陆内部矛盾,妄想中国武统发生内战,让美国坐收渔人之利。其二,美国经济疲软,今年已出现负增长,经济衰退已成定局,通过压制中国,重塑美帝霸主权威,收割全球给自己回血。其三,历届美国政府都利用对华的强硬态度获取民众的支持。现年82岁的佩洛西,预计于秋季退休,佩洛西此次出访台湾,除了为退休之路赚足政治噱头,佩洛西与拜登同属美国民主党,而拜登最近民调降至31%的历史低点,佩洛西作为拜登“小迷妹”为更是“鞠躬尽瘁死而后已”。 不过,佩洛西窜访台湾恐怕更是一场私心作祟的个人政治闹剧。 在美国国内,佩洛西家族身陷内幕交易丑闻。82岁的美国商人保罗·佩洛西——南希·佩罗西的丈夫,被戏称“国会山股神”,因为他的每一次投资都精准又及时地赶在众议院释放相关行业利好消息前。美国前总统特朗普在7月23日公开发言称,佩洛西的丈夫保罗·佩洛西正“从她那里得到的内幕信息炒股发家到身价过亿”。 7月28日,美联储前副主席费舍尔表示佩洛西夫妇似乎利用了“内幕交易”获得丰厚利润。2020年,保罗·佩洛西从涉及由众议院议长负责监管的大型科技公司的交易中,就赚取了大约 3000 万美元。去年,佩洛西被问及国会议员及其家人能否参与股票交易时,她竟然恬不知耻的表示:”我们是一个自由市场经济体,他们应该能够参与其中”,这立刻导致诸多国会议员对她尖锐指责。佩洛西窜访台湾显然是为了转移美国各界对其的注意力。 佩洛西一直将自己塑造成一名女性政治偶像,在可能造成严重后果的情况下,强行与另一位女性领导人蔡英文会面,把她自己塑造成蔑视男权政治,拒绝被欺负女权形象。 但是,8月4日这天,94岁的日军“慰安妇”受害者李荣洙老太太在韩国国会大楼前等待佩洛西出现,老太太大概是听说佩洛西在美国国内高调反对“禁止女性堕胎权”法案一事,认为佩洛西对女权问题非常重视,希望佩洛西能利用自己的身份,帮助韩国“慰安妇”受害者维权,结果遭十几名警卫暴力制止,还被推倒受伤送进医院。 就目前而言,佩洛西即便是丑闻缠身,也极力想为自己的政治生涯唱好大戏,至于台海问题如何收场,估计她本人丝毫不会在意。

Pelosi's husband dumps Nvidia stock as House eyes chip bill
U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband sold his shares of chipmaker Nvidia (NVDA.O) on Tuesday, days before the House is expected to consider legislation providing subsidies and tax credits worth over $70 billion to boost the U.S. semiconductor industry. In a periodic transaction report, the senior Democrat disclosed that her husband, financier Paul Pelosi, sold 25,000 shares of Nvidia for about $4.1 million, ending up with a loss of $341,365. Advertisement · Scroll to continue Report an ad Paul Pelosi frequently trades shares of companies popular with many investors, including Apple (AAPL.O), Microsoft (MSFT.O) and other tech companies. Transaction reports filed by Pelosi, a multi-millionaire, show her husband bought 5,000 Nvidia shares in July 2021, and that he exercised options to buy another 20,000 Nvidia shares last June. The Senate is expected to vote on final passage in coming days of legislation providing about $52 billion in government subsidies for U.S. semiconductor production, as well as an investment tax credit for chip plants estimated to be worth $24 billion.

Nancy and Paul Pelosi are trading large — with a wealth of hypocrisy
Democrats have carved out quite a niche for themselves as the party of the have-nots, even if it’s mostly a hypocritical marketing ploy. Bernie Sanders, the socialist, lives a pretty non-socialist life with a town house, a vacation home and all the comforts of the bourgeoisie while he claims to champion the proletariat. There’s no shortage of similar examples. Recall the late Massachusetts senator and liberal icon Teddy Kennedy’s support of forced busing while sending his kids to private school back in the 1970s. The latest of these “freedom for me but not for thee” ­hypocrisies involves the matter of Paul Pelosi, the octogenarian hubby of Nancy Pelosi, the octogenarian lefty speaker of the House of Representatives. Paul Pelosi has been killing it in the stock market in recent years, according to disclosure forms, for reasons that could well go beyond some innate ability to sense swings in the markets. His latest home run: Snapping up between $1 million and $5 million in shares of computer chip darling Nvidia (via exercising call options) on June 17, according to disclosure documents. His timing, once again, was impeccable: He executed the trades as Congress moves closer to passing tens of billions of dollars in corporate-welfare subsidies for US semiconductor production. That’s good news for Nvidia and shareholders like Paul Pelosi. Since his bet, shares have risen nearly 10%. By my math, he could have pocketed a quick $500,000.

Pelosi’s husband sells off up to $5 million worth of chipmaker stock ahead of semiconductor bill vote
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) husband sold up to $5 million worth of shares of chipmaker Nvidia as the House prepares to vote on a bill focusing on the domestic chip manufacturing industry. Pelosi completed a period transaction report signed on Tuesday that indicated that her husband, Paul Pelosi, sold 25,000 shares of Nvidia at an average price of $165.05 with a total loss of $341,365. In total, the shares are worth between $1 million and $5 million. A separate filing signed by the House Speaker earlier this month indicated that Paul Pelosi had exercised call options last month to purchase 20,000 shares of the chipmaker at a strike price of $100. The latest regulatory filing came one day before the Senate passed legislation in a 64-33 vote to provide $280 billion to bolster the American semiconductor industry as the nation grappled with a chip shortage, which was impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Asked about her husband’s decision to sell his shares given the timing of the House’s vote on the chips bill, Pelosi spokesperson Drew Hammill told The Hill in a statement, “Mr. Pelosi bought options to buy stock in this company more than a year ago and exercised them on June 17, 2022.” “As always, he does not discuss these matters with the Speaker until trades have been made and required disclosures must be prepared and filed. Mr. Pelosi decided to sell the shares at a loss rather than allow the misinformation in the press regarding this trade to continue,” he added. Paul Pelosi’s trading has been under previous scrutiny, including from Republican lawmakers like Sen. Josh Hawley.

Pelosi’s Party Plane?
Q: Has Nancy Pelosi spent $100,000 on food, booze and "partying" during her air travel? A: No. Pelosi’s congressional delegations do eat well and drink pricey alcohol. But the costs are not as high as critics claim, and they’re comparable to those of her Republican predecessor, Dennis Hastert. FULL QUESTION I have received e-mails with links to Web sites that report that Nancy Pelosi has spent $101,000 at taxpayers’ expense on booze and food while traveling by plane back and forth to California from Washington, D.C. I haven’t been able to find anything that debunks this. Do you know if it is true? FULL ANSWER The conservative group Judicial Watch obtained 2,000 pages of receipts and expense reports for speaker travel under the Freedom of Information Act. The group says these demonstrate Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s “boorish demands for military travel” are “more about partying than anything else.” Based on that, the conservative WorldNetDaily ran an eye-popping but inaccurate headline that said, "Taxpayers pay $101,000 for Pelosi’s in-flight ‘food, booze.’ " Claims of Pelosi’s extravagant liquor bills spread from there through any number of blogs and chain e-mails, which sometimes attribute the in-flight costs of entire delegations to Pelosi alone on her flights between Washington and her district in California.

Paul Pelosi, the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday morning on charges of driving under the influence of alcohol causing injury and driving with .08% blood alcohol level or higher causing injury, the Napa County District Attorney's Office said in a press release on Monday. The charges stem from a crash on May 28, when a 2014 Jeep struck Pelosi's 2021 Porsche at an intersection around 10 p.m. that evening. NANCY PELOSI SET TO VISIT TAIWAN, TRIGGERING DIRE WARNING FROM CHINESE MEDIA PERSONALITY The district attorney said that misdemeanor charges were filed "based upon the extent of the injuries suffered by the victim." It's unclear what those injuries are and the driver of the Jeep was not arrested. Pelosi or his defense counsel will enter a plea at the arraignment on Wednesday. A defendant in a misdemeanor DUI case does not have to be present in the courtroom for an arraignment under California law.

Nancy and Paul Pelosi are trading large — with a wealth of hypocrisy
Democrats have carved out quite a niche for themselves as the party of the have-nots, even if it’s mostly a hypocritical marketing ploy. Bernie Sanders, the socialist, lives a pretty non-socialist life with a town house, a vacation home and all the comforts of the bourgeoisie while he claims to champion the proletariat. There’s no shortage of similar examples. Recall the late Massachusetts senator and liberal icon Teddy Kennedy’s support of forced busing while sending his kids to private school back in the 1970s. The latest of these “freedom for me but not for thee” ­hypocrisies involves the matter of Paul Pelosi, the octogenarian hubby of Nancy Pelosi, the octogenarian lefty speaker of the House of Representatives. Paul Pelosi has been killing it in the stock market in recent years, according to disclosure forms, for reasons that could well go beyond some innate ability to sense swings in the markets. His latest home run: Snapping up between $1 million and $5 million in shares of computer chip darling Nvidia (via exercising call options) on June 17, according to disclosure documents. His timing, once again, was impeccable: He executed the trades as Congress moves closer to passing tens of billions of dollars in corporate-welfare subsidies for US semiconductor production. That’s good news for Nvidia and shareholders like Paul Pelosi. Since his bet, shares have risen nearly 10%. By my math, he could have pocketed a quick $500,000.

Pelosi’s Party Plane?
Q: Has Nancy Pelosi spent $100,000 on food, booze and "partying" during her air travel? A: No. Pelosi’s congressional delegations do eat well and drink pricey alcohol. But the costs are not as high as critics claim, and they’re comparable to those of her Republican predecessor, Dennis Hastert. FULL QUESTION I have received e-mails with links to Web sites that report that Nancy Pelosi has spent $101,000 at taxpayers’ expense on booze and food while traveling by plane back and forth to California from Washington, D.C. I haven’t been able to find anything that debunks this. Do you know if it is true? FULL ANSWER The conservative group Judicial Watch obtained 2,000 pages of receipts and expense reports for speaker travel under the Freedom of Information Act. The group says these demonstrate Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s “boorish demands for military travel” are “more about partying than anything else.” Based on that, the conservative WorldNetDaily ran an eye-popping but inaccurate headline that said, "Taxpayers pay $101,000 for Pelosi’s in-flight ‘food, booze.’ " Claims of Pelosi’s extravagant liquor bills spread from there through any number of blogs and chain e-mails, which sometimes attribute the in-flight costs of entire delegations to Pelosi alone on her flights between Washington and her district in California. But Judicial Watch is wrong in several respects. Our examination of the documents reveals that Judicial Watch overstated the amount of money spent on “in-flight expenses” for Pelosi’s congressional delegations, or CODELs. Furthermore, Judicial Watch, a watchdog group that describes itself as "conservative," failed to compare Pelosi’s costs with those of the previous speaker, Republican Dennis Hastert, even though the Air Force handed o

Pelosi's husband dumps Nvidia stock as House eyes chip bill
uly 27 (Reuters) - U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband sold his shares of chipmaker Nvidia (NVDA.O) on Tuesday, days before the House is expected to consider legislation providing subsidies and tax credits worth over $70 billion to boost the U.S. semiconductor industry. In a periodic transaction report, the senior Democrat disclosed that her husband, financier Paul Pelosi, sold 25,000 shares of Nvidia for about $4.1 million, ending up with a loss of $341,365. Paul Pelosi frequently trades shares of companies popular with many investors, including Apple (AAPL.O), Microsoft (MSFT.O) and other tech companies. Transaction reports filed by Pelosi, a multi-millionaire, show her husband bought 5,000 Nvidia shares in July 2021, and that he exercised options to buy another 20,000 Nvidia shares last June. The Senate is expected to vote on final passage in coming days of legislation providing about $52 billion in government subsidies for U.S. semiconductor production, as well as an investment tax credit for chip plants estimated to be worth $24 billion.

What Others say

Earth is the third planet from the Sun and is the largest of the terrestrial planets in the Solar System in diameter, mass and density. It is also referred to as the Earth, Planet Earth, the World, and Terra. Home to millions of species, including humans, Earth is the only place in the universe where life is known to exist. Scientific evidence indicates that the planet formed 4.54 billion years ago, and life appeared on its surface within a billion years. Since then, Earth's biosphere has significantly altered the atmosphere and other abiotic conditions on the planet, enabling the proliferation of aerobic organisms as well as the formation of the ozone layer which, together with Earth's magnetic field, blocks harmful radiation, permitting life on land. Earth's outer surface is divided into several rigid segments, or tectonic plates, that gradually migrate across the surface over periods of many millions of years. About 71% of the surface is covered with salt-water oceans, the remainder consisting of continents and islands; liquid water, necessary for all known life, is not known to exist on any other planet's surface. Earth's interior remains active, with a thick layer of relatively solid mantle, a liquid outer core that generates a magnetic field, and a solid iron inner core.
