Nancy Pelosi Will Soon be Slumming it & Flying Commercial with WE THE PEOPLE, But on the “No Junk Touch” List
Do you hear that sound … it’s cricket playing the violin.
Elections have consequences … Soon to be Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s perks are coming to an end and so is her access to military aircraft for travel. Pelosi will be forced to slum it and travel commercial with the common folk, We the People. More at the Jawa Report, with tissues in hand and no sarcasm what-so-ever.
If you’re planning to fly after the new year, you may find a familiar face next to you on your next flight to San Francisco.That’s because Speaker Nancy Pelosi will no longer have access to military aircraft and will instead fly commercial to her district after she becomes House minority leader, her office confirmed to Politics Daily.
For the last four years, Pelosi has had access to Air Force planes to jet home to her California district, one of the many perks that come along with being the most powerful member of the House of Representatives and second in line to the presidency after the vice president.
However, don’t look for Nancy Pelosi to have to be forced to have naked scans (EEK) of her courtesy of the TSA of being patted down. Because all politicians are more special than us peons who are subjugated to civil rights violations, while elected officials are in a class above us all. That is because there is a “NO JUNK” touch list. You wonder why Democrats and Liberals are so for “love pats” by the TSA, as Sister Toldja tells us, maybe it’s because the pats are for WE, not for THEE.
You’ve heard of the “no-fly” list.
Now get a load of the no-grope list — a roster of the privileged federal officials and politicians who don’t have to be subjected to TSA’s grabby hands.
TSA: Some gov’t officials to skip airport security. No wonder politicians have lost sight of what the American people are all about. They live a life of privilege and have forgot long ago where they came from when they were part of “We the People”.
Cabinet secretaries, top congressional leaders and an exclusive group of senior U.S. officials are exempt from toughened new airport screening procedures when they fly commercially with government-approved federal security details.
Aviation security officials would not name those who can skip the controversial screening, but other officials said those VIPs range from top officials like Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and FBI Director Robert Mueller to congressional leaders like incoming House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, who avoided security before a recent flight from Washington’s Reagan National Airport.
The TSA would not explain why it makes these exceptions. But many of the exempted government officials have gone through several levels of security clearances, including FBI background checks. Armed security details eliminate the need for an additional layer of security at airports.
Some members of President Barack Obama’s Cabinet, including Defense Secretary Robert Gates, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Attorney General Eric Holder and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, travel almost exclusively on government or military planes.
Top officials like Geithner, Mueller and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid travel with security details and skip airport checkpoints, aides said. The second-ranking Senate Democrat, Sen. Richard Durbin of Illinois, and the House Democratic whip, Rep. James Clyburn of South Carolina, also have security, but they typically undergo regular screening with other passengers, aides said.
