House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has made millions of dollars by investing money into the stock market on companies she helps regulates, according to Newsmax investigative report by Glenn Greenwald.
Over the last 17 years, Pelosi’s wealth has reportedly increased to $115 million from $41 million. Most of her and her husband Paul’s wealth is due to “lucrative decisions about when to buy and sell tech stocks,” the report adds. Newsmax continues, “Over the last two years, almost 75% of the trading done by the Pelosis, more than $33 million, has been in Big Tech. Major legislation concerning the industry during the same time frame has been pending before the House, controlled by the committees that Pelosi oversees.”
Is there a conflict of interest? Greenwald says there is. As one example, buying and selling in Apple alone accounted for 17.7% of the Pelosis’ overall trading volume.
Pelosi is accused of having at least one private conversation with Apple CEO Tim Cook during the same period of time, reportedly discussing how pending legislation to reform Silicon Valley could have an impact. Pelosi is reportedly the sixth wealthiest member of Congress. Read the full story at Newsmax.

The wall had been showing signs of weakness for some time, the report added. The report stated, “It was just age. It just came away… the Blade. “It happens to the older buildings.”
Trump Jr wrote, “This will drive some people nuts but oh well. I mean you have to wonder if someone, like a higher power, is telling us something here?!? Obviously what happened to George Floyd should never happen anywhere!!! That said, objectively speaking, given his history I’m not sure turning him into a deity and a role model for our children is exactly the right idea either.”
NEXT STORY: MSNBC’s Joy Reid Compares Possible Arrest of Texas Democrats to Fugitive Slave Act
MSNBC’s Joy Reid compared threats to arrest Texas House Democrats who left the state to the Fugitive Slave Act, according to Fox News. She said, “I have to talk to you about this threat to have you all arrested when you return to Texas and supposedly to track you down like the Fugitive Slave Act is still in force now.” Reid asked her guest, Rep. Chris Turner, “What do you make of that, those threats?”
The Fugitive Slave Act was an 1850 law that amended a prior law requiring all escaped slaves be returned to their owners upon their capture. It forced free states in the North to cooperate and was widely despised by abolitionists. Texas Democrats left their state to prevent a quorum from a special session that would address election security bills.

NEXT STORY: Megan Fox Wrecks Cancel Culture — Says Donald Trump was a ‘Legend’ at UFC Fight
Megan Fox is accused of supporting former President Trump after she referred to the former president as a “legend” at the recent UFC 264 fight between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier, according to Fox News.
Jimmy Kimmel on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” asked Fox about her recent attendance at the fight and she noted that Trump was received by the crowd at the event as a “legend.” Fox reports that the remark clearly got people upset. Fox later wrote on social media in all-caps:
“UHMMM… I DO NOT ALIGN MYSELF WITH ANY POLITICAL PARTY OR INDIVIDUAL POLITICIANS,” she wrote in her all-caps rebuke. “I NEVER SAID DONALD TRUMP IS A LEGEND. I SAID HE WAS A LEGEND… IN THAT ARENA (KEY PART OF THE SENTENCE).”
“REALLY LOVING THIS UNEDUCATED, MID-EVIL [sic] PITCH FORK CARRYING, BURN THE WITCH AT THE STAKE MENTALITY THOUGH. THE WORLD NEEDS MORE OF THAT.”
During her appearance on the late-night talk show, Fox indeed referred to Trump as a “legend,” but made sure to note that the fans in the arena were the ones giving the former president a positive reaction… “I was in a row with Bieber and Trump was also in my row. I’d never seen the Secret Service in person before so he had like 30 Secret Service with him. He was a legend. That arena was very supportive of Trump when he came in,” she said.
She added: “I don’t know how I feel about it, because if someone is a target then like, I could be harmed because I’m adjacent to where he is. So I was worried about my own safety, that’s all I was caring about. I’d never seen anything like that before. It was crazy.”
