Democratic Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California, who has previously served as House speaker and was the first and only woman ever to do so, has a book coming out later this year titled "The Art of Power."

The long-serving lawmaker who has been in office since 1987, spent two decades serving as either House speaker or House minority leader.

Pelosi, 84, is seeking re-election this year.

"Pelosi took positions that established her as a prophetic voice on the major moral issues of the day, warning early about the dangers of the Iraq War and of the Chinese government’s long record of misbehavior. This moral courage prepared her for the arrival of Trump, with whom she famously tangled, becoming a red-coated symbol of resistance to his destructive presidency. Here, she reveals how she went toe-to-toe with Trump, leading up to January 6, 2021, when he unleashed his post-election fury on the Congress. Pelosi gives us her personal account of that day," a book description on the Simon & Schuster website states.

"Nearly two years later, violence and fury would erupt inside Pelosi’s own home when an intruder, demanding to see the Speaker, viciously attacked her beloved husband, Paul. Here, Pelosi shares that horrifying day and the traumatic aftermath for her and her family," the description notes.

Simon & Schuster's site also indicates that Pelosi and her husband "live in San Francisco, which they consider heaven on earth."

New Blaze Originals documentary: 'Bought and Paid For: How Politicians Get Filthy Rich' – LIVESTREAM TOMORROW

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://www.theblaze.com/media-library/image.jpg?id=51958558&width=1200&height=800&coordinates=300,0,0,0 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//www.theblaze.com/media-library/image.jpg%3Fid%3D51958558%26width%3D1200%26height%3D800%26coordinates%3D300%2C0%2C0%2C0%22%7D" expand=1]

“Give me your tired, your poor

Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.”

“Give me your cunning, money-hungry politicians

Starving for riches and power.”

You know that’s not how the poem goes.

And yet, take one look at our fabulously wealthy members of Congress (ahem, Nancy Pelosi) – whose salaries range from $174k to $223.5k per year – and it’s obvious America has become a place where those who are supposed to serve the country are actually exploiting their positions of power for personal gain.

It turns out earning a degree, starting a business, or even taking a job on Wall Street isn’t the easiest way to earn the big bucks in the United States.

But getting elected to Congress? Now, that’s a surefire way to line your pockets for life.

What would it be like if you were able to buy shares in companies you regulate, or invest in defense contractors right before a war breaks out, or sell your stocks because you found out before everyone else there’s going to be a global pandemic?

We wanted answers to those questions, so we sent James Poulos and the Blaze Originals team to Washington, D.C., to expose how members of Congress get filthy rich.

Featuring X user Unusual Whales, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), Rep. Chip Roy (R-Texas), and former U.S. Rep. George Santos, this documentary shines a light into the shady dealings of America’s corrupt politicians.

Join us on Wednesday, April 10 at 8:00 p.m. ET on YouTube and BlazeTV for a very special live premiere hosted by Glenn Beck, and watch the full episode immediately after.

RNC vs. DNC spending stats reveal why Dems always seem to win

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://www.theblaze.com/media-library/image.jpg?id=51449983&width=600&height=600&coordinates=0,0,840,0 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//www.theblaze.com/media-library/image.jpg%3Fid%3D51449983%26width%3D600%26height%3D600%26coordinates%3D0%2C0%2C840%2C0%22%7D" expand=1]

“Wonder why the Democrats always win?” asks Sara Gonzales. Apparently the answer can be found in the 2022-23 “RNC spending versus DNC spending” stats.

Sara displays the following chart from RedState, and it’s pretty telling:

Sara immediately spots some frivolous spending on the part of the RNC.

“The RNC spent nearly $300,000 in office supplies, while the DNC spent a mere $45,000,” she scoffs.

On floral arrangements, “the RNC spent over $70,000,” whereas “the DNC [spent] $795 … because apparently the left seems to understand flowers don't matter.”

“Ronna Romney only travels in style,” which is why “the RNC spent $263,000” compared to the “DNC’s $7,000” on limousine services, she mocks.

However, for more important matters, such as voter file maintenance and GOTV texting, Sara can’t help but notice a clear lack of concern.

On “voter file maintenance, which seems pretty important … the RNC [spent] $39,239,” compared to “the DNC’s nearly $236,000,” she criticizes.

For “get-out-the-vote texting campaigns, which also seems really important if you want to win, the RNC [spent] $86,000, the DNC over $1.6 million.”

Unfortunately, that’s just the beginning. Sara pulls another round of stats revealing what the RNC has spent on “event tickets and other entertainment activities,” as well as “private jet expenses,” “clothing retailers,” “donor mementos,” and “alcohol-related expenditures,” and it’s enough to make any conservative’s stomach turn.

To hear more about how the RNC is spending your money, watch the clip below.

Pelosi’s head of security likely PERJURED himself with THIS bold Jan. 6 LIE

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://assets.rebelmouse.io/eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJpbWFnZSI6Imh0dHBzOi8vYXNzZXRzLnJibC5tcy80ODU4MzU1Ni9vcmlnaW4uanBnIiwiZXhwaXJlc19hdCI6MTY5ODM3Mzc4OH0.c8Gc34ndem9gzHzBk76vbyA9EhwZzoWxPoNIw_j4BHM/img.jpg?width=600&height=600&coordinates=560,0,0,0 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//assets.rebelmouse.io/eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJpbWFnZSI6Imh0dHBzOi8vYXNzZXRzLnJibC5tcy80ODU4MzU1Ni9vcmlnaW4uanBnIiwiZXhwaXJlc19hdCI6MTY5ODM3Mzc4OH0.c8Gc34ndem9gzHzBk76vbyA9EhwZzoWxPoNIw_j4BHM/img.jpg%3Fwidth%3D600%26height%3D600%26coordinates%3D560%2C0%2C0%2C0%22%7D" expand=1]

Steve Baker is one of only five journalists with access to the full 41,000 hours of January 6 tapes.

“He has been working on the January 6th puzzle for a while now, and his efforts have been frustrated over and over again by the politics in Washington when he is just trying to find the truth,” says Glenn Beck.

Today, Steve joins Glenn again to discuss a new piece of the puzzle: whether Pelosi’s head of security perjured himself in the Oath Keepers trial.

On October 3rd, 2022, “Jeffrey Nestler, assistant U.S. attorney, approached the lectern ... and said to Judge Amit Mehta, ... 'We have a rogue attorney that is about to release some FBI 302s,” which are confidential interviews kept under strict lock and key.

“Judge Amit Mehta did something that I have never seen before,” Steve tells Glenn. “He actually directed the media pool to put out a tweet and threaten this particular attorney and let him know that if he released those sealed documents, he would have him held in contempt of court.”

“And right then, I went, ‘What are in those documents?’” says Steve.

While the documents are still sealed, we do know that “the documents themselves were the actual FBI interviews of one of these Capitol Police officers, and the primary problem that the government has with those documents is that the testimony was changed.”

In the first testimony, the officer reported that his interaction with the Oath Keepers was positive.

He claimed that “the Oath Keepers lined up between him and the more agitated protesters and assisted him in keeping them off of him and helping him de-escalate,” Steve explains.

However, in a second interview that occurred only three months later, his “testimony was changed into an aggravated, contentious event with the Oath Keepers, as well as the creation of a second event to explain the first FBI interview that never happened,” continues Steve.

Because Steve has access to the tapes, he was able to pinpoint the exact moment when this alleged contentious encounter with the Oath Keepers occurred.

“Tell me about ... what the story was in the testimony and then what you found on the tape,” says Glenn.

To hear Steve’s shocking report, watch the clip below.

Democrats support LGBT movement by marking 'International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, and Transphobia'

In a display of their dedication to the LGBT movement, leftists marked "International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, and Transphobia" on Wednesday. President Joe Biden and various other Democratic figures issued statements expressing their support for those who identify as LGBT.

"On the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, and Transphobia, we reaffirm our commitment to this ongoing work and stand with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and intersex (LGBTQI+) people around the world," Biden declared in his statement.

Sen. Bob Casey of Pennsylvania shared a photo of himself sporting multiple brightly-colored necklaces and a shirt with a rainbow pride flag sticking out of the pocket — a button on the shirt reads, "PHILLY PRIDE 2022."

\u201cToday is International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, and Transphobia. I'm proud to be an ally of the LGBTQ+ community in the fight to ensure they can live authentically without fear of discrimination. \ud83c\udff3\ufe0f\u200d\ud83c\udf08\ud83c\udff3\ufe0f\u200d\u26a7\ufe0f\u201d
— Senator Bob Casey (@Senator Bob Casey) 1684328668

Many other Democrats also trumpeted their support for the LGBT movement.

"Democrats always proudly stand with LGBTQ+ Americans in their fight against injustice and discrimination," Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California tweeted. Pelosi, who previously served as speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, added, "This International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia, let us speak out against discrimination, especially amid the escalating assault on our trans community."

"On International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia, #IDAHOBIT, we reject anti-LGBTQI+ bigotry surging across America and worldwide, a hallmark of authoritarian demagogues and movements. We can all play a role in rejecting hate and celebrating democratic pluralism," Rep. Jamie Raskin of Maryland tweeted.

"Discrimination against LGBTQ folks is rising at an alarming rate across the country, including in Texas. Today on International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia, we condemn this bigotry and work to root out hate and discrimination wherever it exists," Rep. Colin Allred of Texas tweeted.

Debate continues to rage around the U.S. over issues such as whether biological men and boys who identify as women or girls should be permitted to play in female sports and use female restrooms — and many parents oppose the idea of schools exposing students to LGBT topics.
