Pelosi treats the air force as her own travel service.

The documents also detail correspondence from intermediaries for Speaker Pelosi issuing demands for certain aircraft and expressing outrage when requested military planes were not available. “It is my understanding there are no G5s available for the House during the Memorial Day recess. This is totally unacceptable…The speaker will want to know where the planes are…” wrote Kay King, Director of the House Office of Interparliamentary Affairs. In a separate email, when told a certain type of aircraft would not be available, King writes, “This is not good news, and we will have some very disappointed folks, as well as a very upset [s]peaker.”
During another email exchange DOD staff advised Kay King that one Pelosi military aircraft request could not be met because of “crew rest requirements” and offered to help secure commercial travel. Kay King responded: “We appreciate the efforts to help the codel [sic] fly commercially but you know the problem that creates with spouses. If we can find another way to assist with military assets, we would like to do that.”
Speaker Pelosi came under fire in 2007 for requesting a 42-seat Air Force carrier to ferry the Speaker and her staff back and forth between San Francisco, CA and Washington, DC. Former House Speaker Dennis Hastert was allowed access to a 12-seat commuter jet for security reasons after the events of 9/11.

“Taken together, these documents show that Speaker Pelosi treats the Air Force like her personal airline,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Not only does Speaker Pelosi issue unreasonable requests for military travel, but her office seems unconcerned about wasting taxpayer money with last minute cancellations and other demands.”

    Travel on government Military aircraft should be strictly limited to the POTUS, VPOTUS and cabinet secretaries going to and from official government functions for national security. Pelosi can afford her own travel to and from here home and in no way should be flying on government provided aircraft unless for official government business and approved by the GOA. That goes for all other elected officials as well. They have expense accounts and should use them carefully and we don't care how or if she ever gets home or back to Washington D.C. They should take away their government limos too. Toss them in the back of a HumVee with a couple unarmed PFCs.

      I've been thinking more and more about it, but I think that the individual States should be responsible for ALL the bills of their respective representatives and staffs. Let them explain to their own constituents about the results of the audits - as they are paying for them!

        The military should not be a taxi service for all of the 535 elected officials to get them back and forth to their work place. If we only knew the ridiculous amounts of tax dollars we spend ferrying these fools all over the country plus their living and eating bills every one of us would be stunned.

      Beginning in 2009, after the media failed to follow up on concerns raised about Nancy Pelosi’s use of luxury Air Force jets to travel between her congressional district and DC, Judicial Watch’s Freedom of Information act requests exposed her abuse of this travel perk. Judicial Watch uncovered that Pelosi’s military travel cost the United States Air Force $2,100,744.59 over one two-year period — $101,429.14 of which was for in-flight expenses, including food and alcohol.

        Apparently Dobrien, we follow the same real news outlets. Nancy the lush was dragging all her high rolling friends back and forth with her and they were all drinking only the top shelf spirits. If it was my call and we even had to fly her home and back I would provide her with a Cessna that had to re fuel every 300 miles flown by a Mexican or Muslim trained pilot.

        Oih halve ye know thaut Princess Pelosi IS entitled to USAF air limo service due to her royal status as one of our more than equal elite betters,
        In fauct, oih say, the USAF should honor her elite status by providing her highness with a jet painted royal purple.
        Oih say, quite the splendid picture, wot, with her approaching her purple plane wearing a tiara and holding her over-sized gavel scepter-like while her staff trails her by holding up her o so very elongated purple cape.
        Ah, one final touch me the dandy dino overlooked. Little flower girls should precede the princess by tossing petals before the feet of her royal personage.
        Then off she flies. Ta-ta! Cheerio!.
        Oops, oih came back, by golly, to edit in one other touch Nutty Nancy deserves. The USAF Band should always be on hand to play "Pomp And Circumstance" whenever Princess Pelosi approaches or leaved her purple plane. Thaut means the band needs to follow her flights in a separate jet.
        For Nutty Nancy is Speaker Of The House, third in line for what for her would be the Presidential Throne. OOO-boy! Just imagine thaut!
        A band for Queen Pelosi playing the "Presidential March."

          Toxic narcissists crave chaos and destruction
          Toxic — or malignant — narcissists take it a step further. Not only do they want the attention, but they also want everyone else to feel inferior. They tend to be sadistic and enjoy hurting other people, thriving on their fear.

          "The toxic narcissist is like the evil queen in 'Snow White,'" Greenberg said. "When the mirror says Snow White is prettier than her, she decides to kill Snow White and keep her heart in a box."

          Toxic narcissists find it entertaining to set people up and watch them fall, something Thomas calls an extra layer of sadistic behavior.

    Princess? I see her more as a Madam, allowing the continuation of the Congressional pedophile ring in DC, which brings in millions, at the cost of childhood innocence. She has been there as it operated her whole career, yet lifts not a finger to end the sexual bause. Why ould such a arrogant woman care how much taxpayer dollars she waste. She proved her disrespect for the military years ago, they forgot the were her servants. How about her personal wall? She even demanded the proper title be used by those ferrying her about, or she reprimanded them. When did we get a queen who looks like Norma Desmond?
