The Pelosi Affect, Nobody is Flying...


Recommended Posts


President Trump not only canceled Pelosi's flight using Government Aircraft, He Canceled everybody's flights and transportation until the shutdown has ended.

On Friday was released to heads of departments in the government a note from acting Office of Management and Budget director Russell Vought.

“In light of the current partial government shutdown, the president has asked me to direct the heads of all executive departments and agencies of the administration on new policies in support of Legilsative Branch travel.”

“Under no circumstances during a government shutdown will any government owned, rented, leased, or chartered aircraft support any congressional delegation, without the express written approval of the White House Chief of Staff. Nor will any funds appropriated to the executive branch be used for any congressional delegation travel expenses, without his express written approval. Departments and agencies shall continue to provide appropriate logistical and security support for such delegations.”

Melania Trump is still using government flights.

She is not a member of the legislative branch.

She is the First Lady, and a damn fine one at that. 

She has no control over the shutdown.  Only those that have the resources and the power to end the shutdown and fund the wall, but refuse have been grounded.

where has she flown in the last 25 days and for what purpose?




But the partial shutdown hasn't halted the first lady's travel. On Thursday night, just an hour after news broke that her husband nixed the use of military aircraft for a war zone trip led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Melania Trump jetted out of Joint Base Andrews in Maryland, aboard her own government plane, bound for Mar-a-Lago.

A White House official said the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend trip was long-planned and is being spent with her son.

That trip marked Melania Trump's fifth solo flight since the shutdown began. Per security protocols set in place by the government and the United States Secret Service, the first lady, along with the President and the vice president, must always fly via military aircraft, leaving the Trump private air fleet, or commercial flights, out of the question. Her Secret Service detail, which is accompanying her on the trip per safety protocol, is part of the 800,000 federal employees working without a paycheck.

Between December 27 and January 4, when Trump returned to Mar-a-Lago from Washington, the first lady spent quality time with her son Barron, East Wing spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham told CNN.

If any attack on the United States occurs prior to funding and completion of necessary security barriers on our southern border, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer should be held directly responsible for their traitorous actions against the United States of America.
