Pelosi Admits She Fantasizes about ‘Ruling the World’ - WATCH
'I think about that a lot'
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has admitted she thinks a lot about ruling the world in a bizarre new video.
The House Speaker, who Jesse Watters recently investigated over allegations of insider trading, discussed the possibility of “ruling the world" in the short clip.
"People ask me if you ruled the world, what would you do?" Pelosi said.
"I think about that a lot," she admitted.
Recently, Fox News Anchor Jesse Watters investigated how the Democratic House Speaker got so rich off of a government salary.
According to Watters, Pelosi's success is down to her husband Paul, who opened up a real estate and venture capital firm.
“Pelosi always knows what the right investment is.”
Watters then listed all the homes Pelosi's owns along with their net worth.
Neon Nettle reported in 2019:
According to a recently resurfaced 2011 investigation by Steve Kroft for CBS's "60 Minutes," while serving in her previous stint as House speaker, Nancy Pelosi bought stock in initial public offerings (IPOs) that earned hefty returns while she had access to insider information that would have been illegal for an average citizen to trade with – even though it’s perfectly legal for elected officials.
In a piece relying on data collected from the conservative Hoover Institution, "60 Minutes" revealed that elected officials like Pelosi are exempt from insider trading laws – regulations that carry hefty prison sentences and fines for any other citizen who trades stocks with private information on companies that can affect their stock price.
In the case of elected officials – this secret information ranges from timely details on lucrative federal contracts to legislation that can cause companies’ stocks to rise and fall dramatically.
How do they get away with it? Lawmakers have exempted themselves from the laws that govern every other citizen.
At the time of the report in November 2011, Pelosi, D-Calif., and her husband had participated in at least eight IPOs while having access to information directly relating to the companies involved.
We also reported last month that Pelosi claimed America's capitalistic system failed to serve its economy and needs to be "improved."
Pelosi said while peaking at the Chatham House in London:
"Capitalism is our system, it is our economic system, but it has not served our economy as well as it should. And so what we want to do is not depart from that, but to improve it."
The House Speaker claimed the U.S. had "stakeholder capitalism" four decades ago, in which pay increases for CEOs and workers accompanied productivity increases.
