I dont know the details of any trip to Brussels or Egypt or their merits, or if those are even real. I know Scalise brought up Brussels randomly this morning. By the latest reports she was due to leave into the warzone of Afghanistan at 3:30 PM today, that trip was kept secret for security reasons and will obviously now have to be cancelled...I wouldnt be calling a trip to a warzone a vacation or a PR stunt. Obviously flying commercial into Afghanistan is a large security risk.




The House and Senate announced Tuesday they would stay in session, canceling an upcoming recess week at home if the shutdown continued, which seemed likely.

Considering the House and Senate made the announcement on Tuesday, that they would stay in session next week, cancelling their recess, I would assume that the Speaker of the House had already cancelled her plans to leave today, and the president's words are blustering emptiness.



Yeah, that’s why they’re currently sitting on a bus heading to the airport.

Why was Pelosi going to any of those places?

LOL. If the government is shut down, it's shut down. No oversees junkets until the shutdown ends, Madame Speaker.

Maybe she likes getting her bribes in person, in cash??

She is older than dirt, I'm sure most politicians just get it all wired now.

Im 100% confident they are, just fodder for what you already see in this thread. From what I see and hear too they were already cancelled other than the classified secure trip to Afghanistan. Which, while it may be able to be delayed, these trips arent planned on a whim, and it is important for our higher ranking officials to visit warzones and meet with the officials.

It is exactly like two 6 years old fighting to see who gets in the last:


Nanny nanny boo boo.


Or in Trumps case, it may be:

Nancy nancy boo boo.


Film at 11.

Nancy's presence in afghanistan is vital with regard to the conflict. She visits frequently and is actually a very powerful component in fighting our enemies.

Now this is pretty top secret stuff here, but I have to share, It's just so brilliant.

Nancy is actually a weapon that we sometimes deploy under serious circumstances.

We place her in a gold engraved chest and let the enemy capture it, when they open it she vaporizes everyone around.

It's called the Ark of Senility.

CNN is really whining for Nancy and very upset.

Tough break CNN.

In short all this did, is state she can not take military transport, or enjoy such that is provided by the US military. However, it does not stop her from travelling to any country, using public transportation or even if need by using her own funds to charter a private airplane.

Ultimately, Trump is making a mistake, by his own working and it will come back to affect him and future administrations for years to come.

A mistake. Naw....He is telling her and her delegation to get back to work. Good luck booking JetBlue to Afghanistan this afternoon Nancy but serioulsy, you think she would pay a dime to do anything? ..

I love this pic...

Plus...




source also told Fox News that when moving to cancel the flight, the White House reasoned that the trip would keep Pelosi out of the country beyond next Tuesday night—when the next government pay period would occur. "If she had gone on this trip she would have guaranteed that 800,000 federal workers would not receive their second paycheck because she would not have been here to negotiate any kind of deal," a senior White House official said Thursday.

Looks as though Nancy wasn't planning on being around to help resolve the issue. She's saying keep it shut down.

LOL! Seriously, there is no reason for a Congressional delegation to visit Afghanistan. The House of Representatives is not involved in military planning.

More likely, they're were going to get some free samples of the local product, and/or payments from the local opium lords to keep US troops from being pulled out.

Queen Pelosi was going to be taken to the airport separately with a police escort. She does not travel on the bus.

Trump is not going to let up, so even if she is there, they are still not going to get paid. So it is back to chartering flights, so she may not get to a war zone, however Europe is not in a war zone, and she could fly into say Brussels, have a meeting and then fly out again, to any European country and then come home, flying back, without any one to stop her, though it would be on a public transportation, like say even if she remained in the US.
