Calling Bullshit Sight Unseen

One typically-valid heuristic for bullshit detection: any story involving Nancy Pelosi, misuse of military resources and Judicial Watch is a safe bet to be false.

Without even looking into this I’m going to say that if this is true it probably has something to do with common security precautions, kinda like the last time this shit came up. I mean gee, it’s not like there would be any potential leverage to be gained for some terrorist theoretically kidnapping the family of the Speaker of the House right? The Bush daughters had their own Secret Service detail, etc.

Of course if I’m wrong I’m wrong, but this is just one of those riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight moments.

Meet the Pelosi family! Using Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests, Judicial Watch uncovered thousands of pages of travel documents related to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s use of military aircraft.

What hasn’t been revealed so far is that military aircraft are being used to shuttle Pelosi’s kids and grandkids between DC and San Francisco without any Congressional representatives even onboard! Put simply, the United States Air Force is serving as a multi-billion dollar chauffeur- and baby-sitting service for Nancy Pelosi’s kids and grandkids — presumably because commercial travel is beneath the families of the autocrats.
