The Speaker’s Conflict of Interest: Energy Legislation

Door to Speaker's Office

Door to Speaker's Office

When we last visited on the subject of Nancy Pelosi,  we discussed four reasons why she should resign as Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives:

  • Extraordinary and unnecessary bias and partisanship
  • Authoritarian and partisan tactics to silence the truth and promote misinformation
  • The disdain with which she refers to American citizens, her constituents as ‘Speaker’
  • Pelosi’s communist allies, history, and background.

Pelosi, as Chair of the Democratic National Convention, certified to the Nation that Barack Hussein Obama met all of the qualifications of Constitution for the Presidency.  In certain states, Pelosi’s certification of Constitutional eligibility without fully knowing whether Obama was eligible may constitute election fraud.  That this possibility even exists casts a cloud over her capability to lead.

As Speaker, Pelosi has the ability to influence the direction of all legislation, which invites scrutiny as to how she personally benefits, the  noble servant that she is.  Here is Tom Brokaw, confronting Speaker Pelosi on her ties to the natural gas industry where she stands to benefit by steering legislation through the House:

I remember Representative Pelosi complaining about ‘two oil men in the White House’ during the Bush-Cheney years.  I guess they weren’t into enough natural gas for Nancy.

Just Muckety Around

Naturally curious, I constructed a muckety of Nancy Pelosi, her investments, and her connections.  If you go to the muckety, expand “Clean Energy Fuels Corporation” and then “T. Boone Pickens”, the ultimate ‘power and influence’ map leads you to the Clinton Global Initiative, the Clean Skies Television Network, and Al Gore.  Expanding any other of the connections leads you to a ‘who’s who’ of the ‘environmental movement’.

To me it looks like a ‘spider web’ of companies, programs, universities, businesses, environmental organizations and Congressional  members designed to enrich themselves and spun under the guise of ‘clean skies’ and carbon dioxide reduction. Ultimately it replaces the ‘old oil guys’ with the ‘new oil guys’, making gas off the old oil fields.  Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

Cap and Trade and the Speaker’s Role

How interesting that the new Waxman-Markey Cap & Trade legislation, if passed, is an ‘unexpected boom’ to the natural gas industry, both at home and abroad! 😕  Anything that regulates carbon-dioxide will boost natural gas. Cap and Trade legislation will replace diesel fuel with natural gas, and favor natural gas power plants over coal-fired plants.

Here are my questions:

  • Should the Speaker and her staff recuse themselves from writing any part of the legislation, scheduling debate or adding amendments?
  • Should the Speaker be forced to disclose her personal financial interests in the outcome of Cap and Trade legislation? How about other members of Congress?
  • Should the Speaker recuse herself from voting on said legislation?
  • Why should Americans believe the Speaker is being truthful about the benefits and costs of this legislation?

The Obama  ‘agenda’ of tax and enslave Americans is pretty clear right now.  Can the “Speaker of the House” truly speak for the people?


We know its a trick.  Now who really gets the treat?

    The “Speaker” insisted that the public option would be in the HC bill out of the House because all those demonstrators who were funded by the insurance companies are ridiculous…60-70% of the population want it.

    This is not exactly on the subject at hand, but I woke in the middle of the night, turned on the television to see Fox News, and Glenn Beck’s show was airing (may be a repeat). He was talking talking about so many of Obama’s inner cirlce, czars, people he goes to for advise (Valerie Jarrett), etc etc etc, were fans of Chairman Mao who was a mass murderer who killed hundreds and thousands of people in China. He pointed out all the ways Obama’s czars and advisors were Marxists and Mao’s view that Revolution is the only way to get things the way you want them. I sat thinking about it for a long while and I now realize the democratic party I once loved is definitely not my mother’s democratic party any more. It is filled with marxists, pseudo communists, and people who hate our government and wish to totally change it and plan to do that at any cost. That is why they pushed the Clintons out, since the Clintons are really more centrists. They want to work within the system to effect change. There is a definite power struggle going on within the democratic party between the lunatic left marxist fringe and the more moderate centrist main stream those who love this country blue dog type democrats. When the evangelicals highjacked the republican party, we got George Bush. Now that the lunatic marxist left has highjacked the democrat party, we get Barack Obama and George Soros. But this time the stakes are a lot higher. This group of radicals who surround Obama really intend to do harm to us. We don’t need Al Queda, the real threat comes from within and is much closer to home (1600 Pennsylvania Avenue). I am so very greatful to Dr. Kate and all who come here for paying attention, keeping our heads, and trying to educate. I know now I can no longer be a member of the democratic party (I realized it in 2008 but now I know there is no hope at all) as we do not share the same values nor do we see things in the same way. Foregive me for rambling on, but I guess I needed to share that with those who would understand.

      I totally agree, watching Anita Dunn drool over Mao Tse “Tongue” (her tongue keeps flinging out like she’s on Haldol) has GOT to make you wonder,and Ayers said some 25 million Americans would have to be exterminated as they could not be reeducated.

    My answer to your questions is:
    Why should we believe Madam Speaker about anything?

    It was only 4 weeks ago 1.7+ million people went to D.C. to be heard.

    The “Media” reported it as “thousands”. LIARS.

    There’s no way they will report the truth about Pelosi, either.

    Time to get off the couch, away from the computer, and in their faces. Perhaps if they just need to point the camera and microphone out their windows, they’d actually cover the news. Wishful thinking.

    sorry off topic. . .want all to see.

    More proof of a coordinated Obama citizenship/background cover-up, and the Honolulu Advertiser newspaper is part of it.

    For days I’ve been posting the following news article where Tammy Duckworth, who claimed to know Obama well (and now on the payroll), says Obama was born in Indonesia.

    The article states (14th paragraph),

    “Both were born outside the country — Obama in Indonesia, Duckworth in Thailand — and graduated from high school in Honolulu — Punahou and McKinley, respectively.”

    The original article and quote can be seen here.

    But in the last day or so (Oct 16,2009) the Honolulu Advertiser scrubbed it clean. That quote has been removed. They sanitized article. The new sanitized cover-up version can be seen here.

    How is it that our “history” can be so easily re-written? I remember when we used to criticize the USSR for re-writing their history to suit their political desires. We are doing it in America NOW!!

    People need to be screaming bloody murder. Write to everybody you know. Let them know we’re not going to take this anymore!

    Duckworth is happy to point out that she and Hawai’i-raised Punahou graduate Obama have “a kama’aina connection.”

    Both were born outside the country — Obama in Indonesia, Duckworth in Thailand — and graduated from high school in Honolulu — Punahou and McKinley, respectively.

    “The big thing for me is that I’m a McKinley High grad,” said Duckworth. “That gives you a lot of street creds. I wasn’t a rich kid.”

    How convenient, Mr. Will Hoover has evidently found a source to verify the birth place of Barrack Hussein Obama, I wonder if he has connections at DOH or has been able to convince them to release vital records to substantiate his corrective action to an accepted news story over 3 years old? Perhaps he would be willing to share his investigative method so that we can all rest assured that we do not have a usurper for a President. If not, maybe he needs to put his paper hat on and go sit in the corner!

  9. 10 Bobby G October 16, 2009 at 7:52 pm

    Actually, I am far more inclined to accept the statement of a former school friend and mitary hero like Tammy Duckworth than a liberal MSM cover-up artist like Will Hoover who probably knows less of Obama’s history than most of us following these blogs.

    Heard the greatest name referring to the resident in chief. “lying turd”

    People are waking up more and more…Tea Party Protest in San Francisco..gotta love it.

    While there, visit the Texas Tea Party rally against the crapola in chief too.

    He’s going around the country campaigning and raising money while we have 30% REAL unemployment..He needs his friggin balls squeezed in a vice to wake him up..not really..just saying he needs to wake the f up….
    Like Hillary implies, It’s vain and negligent to run around and look for attention via TV and other means. Fund raising runs in this category. Don’t president’s only fund raise in their last few months in office?

    May God’s wrath towards o and his Mao loving administration against freedom be swift and total. Amen.
