Paul Pelosi Attack – Follow The Evidence, Not The Media Spin

Paul Pelosi Attack – Follow The Evidence, Not The Media Spin

The evidence will reveal the truth, the media will not (at least not before the midterms). This supposed MAGA perp “lived with a notorious local nudist in a Berkeley home, complete with a Black Lives Matter sign in the window and an LGBT rainbow flag, emblazoned with a marijuana symbol, hanging from a tree.”

According to initial reports, Paul Pelosi, the husband of Nancy Pelosi, was the victim of a hammer attack by a man to broke through a back door to attack him, and said he wanted to know where Nancy was. Sounded really simple, at first, an attempted political attack. And maybe it will end up being so, but history tells us to wait for the evidence to come in, and not to rely on politicized media spin.

The Pelosi attack set off a media feeding frenzy immediately terming it a “right wing” or MAGA attack, part of the supposed political violence spurred by demonization of Nancy Pelosi.

It “might” be that simple, but I doubt it. We’ve seen this movie before, where supposedly simple facts turn out not to be so simple, and “right wing” motives turn out to be otherwise.

Most recently we’ve seen the Jusse Smollet hoax, and a slew of other politicized hoaxes. In some cases hoaxes mean the violence never happened (Smollet), in others there was violence but the motive was not as portrayed in the media, such as mentally incompetent delusional Jared Loughner’s shooting of Gabby Giffords (which had nothing to do with Sarah Palin’s electoral map, contrary to media claims).

Michael Brown was shot and killed, but not while his hands were up while pleading “don’t shoot” (Brown was shot because he punched a policeman and tried to take his service weapon). Trayvon Martin was not shot because he was wearing a hoodie (NBC News doctored the 911 call to make it appear Martin was targeted because of his race. Martin was shot while beating George Zimmerman Mixed Martial Arts style in what the jury found to be legal self defense). Those cases altered the trajectory of this nation’s politics based on media malpractice and malfeasance all tainted by politics.

In every one of these cases the dominant mainstream liberal media misreported facts and processed everything through a political lens. In 2013 I wrote how At Boston Marathon as in Newtown, initial media reports almost entirely wrong. Do not believe anything the mainstream media says if it is part of a political spin, until the evidence comes.

In the earlier days of Legal Insurretion we covered a lot of these cases, what I called Failed Eliminationist Narratives:

It started with Bill Sparkman, the part-time Census worker who went missing and then was found dead, setting off an avalanche of mainstream media and left-blogosphere accusations that he was the victim of anti-government “right-wing” hate.  It turned out that Sparkman killed himself, but there were few if any apologies coming.

The Sparkman accusations were based on nothing more than a desire to demonize the newly formed and rapidly growing Tea Party movement as terrorists and un-American.  It was as if they were hoping for an act of Tea Party violence.

Yet there was a theory behind the madness, the Eliminationist Narrative created by Dave Neiwart of Crooks and Liars about an “eliminationist” radical right seeking to dehumanize and eliminate political opposition.  It was a play on the over-used narrative of Richard Hofstadter’s “paranoid style” in American politics.

The Eliminationist Narrative was aided and abetted by an abuse of the term “right-wing” to include groups who are the opposite of conservatism and the Tea Party movement.

In the case of Sparkman, the accusations were just Another Failed Eliminationist Narrative.  And the Eliminationist Narrative would fail time and time again:

We can now add the Boston Marathon Bombing to the pile.  The wild speculation that there was a Tea Party or “right-wing” connection proved false.

The media lies relentlessly and shamelessly, and manipulates the news when it is not too busy covering up news harmful to Democrats, particularly when it comes to political violence. Look how fast the actual assassination attempt against Justice Brett Kavanaugh after weeks of Democrat demonization was memory holed.

I don’t know how the Paul Pelosi attack will play out, but we saw how his drunk driving arrest was hushed up and covered up, and we still don’t know much about it. (Do we know yet where he was that night while Nancy was away and who was with him?)

Already, all is not what it seems with regard to media reporting on the Paul Pelosi attack. The “MAGA” attacker turns out to be more Jared Loughner than anything, as Michael Shellenberger documents, Pelosi Attack Suspect Was A Psychotic Homeless Addict Estranged From His Pedophile Lover & Their Children (emphasis added):

… DePape’s politics have little rhyme or reason. In past years DePape shared a post about Stephen Colbert’s 2006 roast of President George W. Bush at the White House Correspondents dinner; linked to videos of Disney films altered to make it look like the characters were swearing; and claimed, “Jesus is the anti-Christ” — not exactly a litany of right-wing tropes.

And, as I discovered yesterday, DePape lived with a notorious local nudist in a Berkeley home, complete with a Black Lives Matter sign in the window and an LGBT rainbow flag, emblazoned with a marijuana symbol, hanging from a tree. A closer look reveals the characteristics of a homeless encampment, or what Europeans call “an open drug scene.” In the driveway, there is a broken-down camper van. On the street is a yellow school bus, which neighbors said DePape occasionally stayed in. Both are filled with garbage typical of such structures in homeless encampments. People come and go from the house and the vehicles, neighbors say, in part to partake in the use of a potent psychedelic drug, ibogaine.

Neighbors described DePape as a homeless addict with a politics that was, until recently, left-wing, but of secondary importance to his psychotic and paranoid behavior. “What I know about the family is that they’re very radical activists,” said one of DePape’s neighbors, a woman who only gave her first name, Trish. “They seem very left. They are all about the Black Lives Matter movement. Gay pride. But they’re very detached from reality. They have called the cops on several of the neighbors, including us, claiming that we are plotting against them. It’s really weird to see that they are willing to be so aggressive toward somebody else who is also a lefty.”

The circumstances of the attack also have become less clear. First, as attorney Harmeet Dhillon noted early on, it seemed strange that someone off the street could just enter the Pelosi home:

“My firm served a lawsuit against Paul Pelosi one time in SF after attempting to serve at other residences—Napa, Georgetown. They weren’t home, but staff were, & multiple law enforcement officers were on the perimeter. Break-in is odd given this level of security.”

Now some of the leaked facts seem at odds with the initial reporting. Politico reported there was another person present (emphasis added):

David DePape forced his way into the home through a back entrance, Scott said. Officers arrived at the house, knocked on the front door and were let inside by an unknown person. They discovered DePape and Pelosi struggling for a hammer, and after they instructed them to drop the weapon, Scott said, DePape took the hammer and “violently attacked” Pelosi.

As Greg Price noted earlier today, the whole thing is strange:

For people not paying attention, the story now is that a nudist in his underwear with a hammer snuck into the Pelosi residence, a wellness check sent the police there, they knocked on the door, a THIRD person let them in, at which point the man began assaulting Paul Pelosi.

Comfortably Smug” also noted both the bizarre scenario coming out and the illogical media narrative of political (as opposed to psychotic) motivation:

Just to get the media story straight, a nudist hippie that was part of a pro BLM commune walked in only underwear from Berkeley to the ultrarich neighborhood in San Francisco, entered Paul Pelosi’s mansion while predator invisible cloaked to avoid security cameras…

…wrestled with Paul Pelosi while a mysterious 3rd man watched, Paul went to the bathroom, called 911, returned to wrestle the hippie nudist, the unnamed 3rd man let police in, and then the hippie hit Paul with a hammer, because he saw a Kevin McCarthy news conference a year ago

It might be that this ends up a simple case of a political attack. Or something else. The evidence will reveal the truth, the media will not (at least not before the midterms).


Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.


“The evidence will reveal the truth, ”

Then they won’t reveal the evidence.

David Depape isn’t even a Republican. He’s registered as a member of the Green Party.

“We’ve seen this movie before, where supposedly simple facts turn out not to be so simple, and “right wing” motives turn out to be otherwise.”

Like Every. Damned. Time.

Lot of odd circumstance but it would really be odd if a former nudist living in Berkley was MAGA. And there has to more regarding what exactly he was doing there at 2am in his underwear. And why the attack occurred after the police arrived. Also, I hate to say it but where did this “hammer” come from? But I fully expect no explanation from authorities will be forthcoming and the media will not ask.

Let’s be clear. This was probably a person invited in to the residence.

I’d really like to take out life insurance on him.

    InEssence in reply to Barry. | October 30, 2022 at 12:30 am

    I didn’t take the time to confirm it, but I have heard that DePape was previously convicted of male prostitution.

      If you haven’t taken the time to confirm it, why the hell to you post this in the comments? You just add fodder to those who want to discredit this blog. Grow up.

      I haven’t heard or read anything like that.

        Article is here.
        Paper’s Twitter discussion here here.
        Ask yourself, what makes more sense:
        1. Guy shows up at Pelosi’s house in his underwear
        2. Guy shows up fully clothed but gets found fighting in his underwear..?

          Tionico in reply to henrybowman. | October 31, 2022 at 1:55 pm

          well, being the practical pragmatic soul I am, I’d put MY nickel on the second optioin. Middle of the night, even in the Bay Area in September does not lend itself to roaming about in your tidy whities and travellling signficant distances. Someone would have seen the guy standing or walking or sitting on Bart/bus/whatever in his skivvies and perhaps given him a puzzled look.. perhaps punching noneoneone on hisphone and reporting a crazy guy in his near-nothings acting wierd.

          One more ugly example of our “fearless leaders” acting out their godless lives. Seems they are all about bringing everyone else DOWN to their level.
          Not buying that one for myself, thanks all the same. Their:”level” is very undesirable. And dangerous.

          The best way to win any fight is to simply not participate.

          There is still a mountain of facts that have yet to be released and the fact that they won’t answer questions yet tells me they are manufacturing the narrative. This happened just after 2 am on a Saturday. The bars (including gay bars) close at 2 am. Night on the town, Paul returns with his gay tootsie he picked up at the bar, drives or walks through security and the party begins.

          They won’t release the security videos nor the body cams. Is Paul gay or isn’t he? Apparently, the word in SF is that he IS gay and was traveling with a young man in his car when he got caught driving drunk.

          This is quickly turning into what appears to be another Chappaquiddick, Pedophile Island, Seth Rich, First Lady Michael Robinson, etc… etc… cover up. It doesn’t take long to smell a rat and this case stinks to high heaven all ready.

          If this is really what they are saying, come out with the facts already. It’s that simple. Otherwise, we are right back where we were with the pre-vaccine Wuhan Flu days where so many of us instantly mistrusted WHO and the CDC. (Leslie remembers that for sure).

          It just never ends. Our elites are mostly corrupt, immoral scumbags.

          RandomCrank in reply to henrybowman. | November 1, 2022 at 12:12 pm

          He wasn’t in his underwear. As intensely skeptical as I am about the FBI affadavit, there was one tidbit that I think is credible for now: “Officers removed a cell phone, cash, clipper cards, and an unidentified card from DEPAPE’s right shorts pocket.”

          I have no idea what a “clipper card” is, but for purposes of my comment that’s beside the point. What stuck out at me is the description of DePape’s shorts having pockets.

          Folks, the extent of our mutual acquaintances is strictly online. I don’t know what everyone else’s (pause while I cough) “lived experience” is. How many here have been in any proximity to the world’s derelicts? I have passing proximity, having lived in Seattle and now traveling to Portland every month or so for various errands. I will call them “derelict shorts,” and they are not rare. I see them all the time, even in cold weather.

          The rest of the FBI affadavit might be (and likely is, to a large degree) a steaming pile of horseshit, but that tidbit is credible to me until shown otherwise (police bodycam footage would nail it down, but I strongly doubt we will ever see it), and it says that DePape was not clad in underwear, but rather derelict shorts, or in surfer lingo, “board shorts.”

          Really, that’s a common thing. People are not reading for details. I’m a former journalist, old school, and a details guy. So, for now, I’m not thinking that DePape was in his underwear. It’s not a crucial thing, but individual details rarely are. It’s the combination of details, along with what they illustrate or imply, that matters.

          People are repeating that “underwear” bit to support the conjecture that DePape and Paul Pelosi were a sexual pair, be it amorous or only commercial. That might be true, but for now I do not think DePape was in underwear. Further, I suspect that whoever leaked details of the affadavit last weekend incorrectly read “shorts” in their mind as “undershorts.”

          These kinds of niggling errors are common. When I was a reporter, they happened all the time, which is why I learned from experience to sweat the details.

It will be interesting to see if the police find DePape’s clothing at the Pelosis, and if so… where. Since there are felony issues here… this does make things a little more serious.

Subotai Bahadur | October 29, 2022 at 11:09 pm

And it has been revealed in POLITICO that the police knocked on the door and were let in by an “unidentified party” who apparently has gone awa’ w’ t’ fairies.

Subotai Bahadur

This will be fairly easy to crack because there will either be charges and proceedings or there won’t. If there aren’t any then we know it’s a cover up by the Pelosis again.

As Depape stood naked in front of the Pelosi’s, his first words were: “I’m not poll-taker. I’m a pole-giver…. You got a hammer I can borrow?”

Watch. In another day or two it will drop off the radar screen. One thing for sure. I wouldn’t want to be this “house guest.”

It’s coming out that the Depape guy and Paul Pelosi were intimate. Ugh!

DePape did not kill himself.

Paul is clearly interested in drugs, this guy clearly lives in a drug infested camp

Paul and hammer guy knew each other

Hammer guy gives Paul drugs, to say the least

    That fits in somewhere in this:

    “…wrestled with Paul Pelosi while a mysterious 3rd man watched, Paul went to the bathroom, called 911, returned to wrestle the hippie nudist, the unnamed 3rd man let police in, and then the hippie hit Paul with a hammer, because he saw a Kevin McCarthy news conference a year ago.”

    There is much to be imputed from just that small paragraph. Add in the part that was reported by the 911 dispatcher who quoted Paul as referring to his attacker as “a friend”. That suggests an existing relationship.

    I’m also thinking that maybe Paul, DePape and the mysterious person who opened the door for the police were having a discussion which turned into an argument which led to wrestling. Maybe while DePape was getting very agitated, Paul pretended to surrender and left to retrieve something (which may explain the how Paul’s hammer arrived) but called the police. Meanwhile, the “mysterious person” was maybe trying to calm down DePape who then, recognizing the deception upon the arrival of the police, grabbed the hammer away from Paul.

    I suspect DePape wasn’t there to attack Paul. He was there for Nancy (“Where’s Nancy!”) but didn’t believe she wasn’t home. I also believe Paul and Nancy know these people. Seems far-fetched but what is being reported sure suggests that these weren’t strangers. There was a conversation involving three people that went awry.

    The key will probably be when the “mysterious person” is identified. Why don’t we already know that?

    This helps:

    “an Francisco Police Chief William Scott praised the quick-thinking dispatcher who sent police officers to the Pelosi home Friday, after the House speaker’s husband made a surreptitious 911 call.

    “When you have an experienced dispatcher with good instincts, they learn how to read between the lines,” Scott told reporters.

    The dispatcher in question got a call from Paul Pelosi, who managed to leave the line open while he confronted an intruder in his home.

    Pelosi was talking in code, a law enforcement source told CNN earlier today, providing enough detail that the operator could understand something was wrong. At the same time, Pelosi tried not to make it evident that he had an open line.

    “She knew something more was going on, just in her heart and her intuition, just with her experience,” Scott said. “And that calls for a higher priority than this type of call normally receives. This was a well-being check. And she just knew there was more to it. So she alerted our officers, she went that extra step … and that led to a quicker response.””

    So we now understand the “friend” part which changes some of my first read. But where did “Where’s Nancy?” come from? So far, all I see are news reports citing other news reports citing other news reports. And why hasn’t the “mysterious person” been identified yet? Where was Nancy?

    Doesn’t take much to reshape the narrative. If this was an episode of “Colombo”, the “mysterious person” would turn out to be Nancy at the end. Hey, if they aren’t going to tell us the whole story, we can all speculate. That’s all this is.

      DaveGinOly in reply to Pasadena Phil. | October 31, 2022 at 1:43 am

      The “talking in code” is part of the spin. Paul was allegedly calling from a bathroom. Why “talk in code”? Also, how did he know the “intruder’s” name? People don’t break in and introduce themselves.

      Pelosi called the police. That means there was no break-in. A security system capable of alerting authorities to a break-in is within reach of middle-class American home owners. And the Pelosi home didn’t have such a system? Not buying it. There was no break-in.

      Some are explaining the broken glass as the entry site of the police. This doesn’t jibe with police statements that they entered through a door that was opened for them. Who opened the door if not Paul or David? The same person who was in the car with Paul during the DUI stop? Or was David with him then? (I’ve seen reports saying it was a woman with him in the car, and others saying it was a man. This is SF. Sometimes, with some people, it may be difficult to say one way or the other. So the confusion may be excused.)

      I wonder how much of the “friend” part isn’t just the “Telephone Game” at work, especially when the antecedent to the pronoun isn’t clear.

      “He said he was a friend.”

      Which He? Paul, or David? It could be “Paul says David is a friend.” Or it could be “David is asking ‘where’s Nancy?’ and says he (David) is a friend (of Nancy’s).”

      We need to hear the 911 call.

If invited to a Pelosi hammer party, just say ‘no’

The projection of political violence by the d/prog and their media allies is routine. So much so that even people who are casually informed have taken notice.

Lots more info needed to get a clear understanding of what was going on. The people who always try and fill the gaps before the facts come out with ‘must be an evil r plot’ need to pay a price. Real clear has already begun by telling pollsters that the BS push polls and over sampled d+ polls that are inaccurate will not be included in their average.

The same course might be the best option for all news aggregation sites for ‘news’ and opinion. Stop including stories from reporters and opinion writers who are consistently wrong about the facts, those who leap to conclusions without evidence or offer up highly partisan orgs, think tanks and NGOs without any balance.

Not exactly same but very similar to the supposed racist grafitti written in Lebrons door in Beverly Hills coupla yeas ago.

Everything absurd with LBJ like PaulP. So MSM will write and say crazy stuff, do no digging and move on after week.

Also both cases easily solved by talkiing to security system management.

OwenKellogg-Engineer | October 30, 2022 at 9:05 am

Maybe the third, unidentified, individual is the same person who gave Harry Reid his black eyes. The MSM never did get to the bottom of that…..but that’s a given.

The police are keeping some important details out of their reports so far. Given that the attacker is already in custody, that the dispatcher was listening to what was going on until the police arrived, why withhold details? Why not release the identity of the “mysterious person”? All they’ve reported so far is that it was a “he”. And where did “Where’s Nancy” come from?”

If they want to kill the conspiracy theories, now is the time to drop the spook BS. Stalling for time only feeds the belief that certain “important people” were involved in committing this crime and pieces have to be manipulated cover-up to fit a cover-up narrative.

It’s a little sad that the WSJ had 3 “journalists” on this story, ran a front page article, and got it COMPLETELY wrong. WSJ has turned into a tabloid and propaganda rag. It’s sad that satire pages like the Bee and Catturd have better information than the WSJ! 3 “journalists”! LOL.

    The WSJ is in the same league as National Review. IOW’s a marxist publication masquerading as a conservative/business publication.

Getting thar feeling this story is going to get smothered with a pillow real fast. Too many questions and no answers why a mostly naked man is in a house who didn’t break in, probably let in, security non existence, no video out yet bet it was all on tape,
And would put $5 on Depape not being charged for a crime that would lead the a trial. That would let too much information out

Q. Who let DePape in?
A. Ray Epps

“Paul Pelosi stated that he doesn’t know who the male is but he advised that his name is David and that he is a friend.” Yeah, right. As SF’s gay bars closed at 2 am, two gay men met in a bar and went home together. Happens every night in the City by the Bay. Except one of these two men, was married to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. I might disappear for telling you the truth. If I do, you’ll all know why. But here’s what really happened early Friday morning in San Francisco.

Without comment

Wasn’t it stated on Friday both men were in the hospital? Why would DePape be in the hospital?

    So far, everything I have read indicates that most of what is being cited as facts is not what police reported.

    “Where’s Nancy?!” has been attributed to a local NBC new station without attribution and no witnesses. That appears to be BS.

    It hasn’t been proven that DePape broke into the house. Reports that he broke in by smashing the sliding door glass are based on drone footage that shows a French door open next to another that has shattered glass on the ground but on the outside not inside the room. Glass broken during the struggle?

    The police only reported one hammer and that Pelosi and DePape each had one hand on it. It hasn’t been established whose hammer it is.

    Paul citing the attacker as his “friend” on his call to police was part of the dispatcher’s discerning that Pelosi was speaking in “code” informing them that something was wrong. That is why she ordered a “wellness check”. The dispatcher’s recording has been made available so that is a fact.

    The police didn’t report either Pelosi nor DePape being in their underwear although it would make sense that Pelosi was given this happened at 2 am. So where did that come from?

    The reporting on this is atrocious. The worst of them are the politicians jumping on their favorite hobby horses to impose their narrative before any facts are known. My theory on this thread is as good as any I’ve read so far and it might very well be almost completely wrong. All I’ve established so far today is that a couple of my assumptions are facts and what seems to be a growing chorus calling for the identity of the “mysterious person” who opened the door for police.

    Craziest thing I’ve ever seen. Even the OJ murder incident wasn’t this crazy. People running around with their hair on fire everywhere.

    Flatworm in reply to herm2416. | October 30, 2022 at 9:33 pm

    I’m guessing because they have padded rooms and powerful sedatives there.

So, this story is getting a bit strange. His attacker was only wearing his underwear in the middle of the night in the Pacific Heights district. The temperature at 2:45 am the morning of Oct 28 in Pacific Heights where Paulie lives was 52 degrees at the time of the 911 call. Many of us have been in SF at night when it’s 50 degrees: as they say, it feels like 35. You would not go out and walk to Pacific Heights in your underwear. However, if you were dressed for the weather, and you “gain access” to Paulie’s home THEN strip down to your undies…and announce you are waiting for the lady of the house to come home?

No description of what Paulie was wearing or the third party that let the police in the front door? Remember, Jesse Watters tried unsuccessfully with a team of lawyers and investigators to determine identity of the “passenger with Paulie” noted in the police report in Napa when he was involved in a car accident (also in the middle of the night) in May of this year. The story will get even more curious if Paulie’s passenger and the mysterious third-party house guest are one and the same.

The one thing to be certain of-we don’t know the half of it and may never.

    henrybowman in reply to JRD47. | October 30, 2022 at 7:11 pm

    “However, if you were dressed for the weather, and you “gain access” to Paulie’s home THEN strip down to your undies…and announce you are waiting for the lady of the house to come home?”
    “I’m here for a threesome with Nancy!”
    And ladies and gentlemen, there is your perfect insanity defense right there.

Gee, I guess that it’s a good thing that Pelosi didn’t defund her own local police force.

I’m sure that Pelosi insisted that the alleged assailant be released without bail. If not, she would DEFINITELY post his bail because she walks the walk! I bet she shows up personally at his bail hearing with cash and new tool box.

Ahhhhhh, it all make sense now: Depape wanted to date Alexandra Obnoxious-Cortez, hoping she was invited to the Pelosi orgy in progress that evening.

To think Nancy is 3rd in line for the Presidency and Leader of the Free World is mind-boggling.
Low-class people have low-class problems.

How can this be real?

Let’s see how DePape holds up in jail.

    Milwaukee in reply to snowshooze. | October 30, 2022 at 5:16 pm

    Let’s see how DePape holds up in jail.

    Just guessing here, but since the security cameras will be out of order, and the guards will be sleeping, and he will be in a cell alone, I’m guessing suicide. However, only one person will examine or handle the body prior to cremation, we’ll have to trust. Trust, without verification.

I would have to assume that the security measures in place for the 3rd in line of the Presidency of the United States of America would be the best in existence.

Second to none.

Video monitoring, motion detectors, automatic locks with sensors.
Full time live observation.
Round-the-clock posted Security Guards.

I would think the only thing they would not have is a mote full of hungry, mean alligators.

Seriously, how could one expect less taking into consideration of the gravity of the importance of the Position which Nancy Pelosi holds?

To think one could survive even an attempted breech of this Residence seems highly un-likely.

    henrybowman in reply to snowshooze. | October 30, 2022 at 7:13 pm

    By this point, anyone who believes this guy was not invited in is not worth debating.

    artichoke in reply to snowshooze. | October 31, 2022 at 11:36 pm

    Does Nancy live there? He’s with his boyfriends, she’s in Florida or DC. It’s a house with no yard in the middle of a city, not a secure location anyway. A pied-a-terre in her congressional district that he uses as his romper room. That’s my hypothesis anyway.

      artichoke in reply to artichoke. | October 31, 2022 at 11:40 pm

      But if Nancy DOESN’T LIVE THERE it could be a problem with her eligibility to run in her congressional district. And there’s an election in a few days.

      Wouldn’t it be funny if Nancy were disqualified from representing that district in Congress? Then every other title and power she has in DC would vanish. The House could hypothetically elect her Speaker even without her being a Member of Congress, but the next House will be controlled by the other party so … nah.

One thing I’m certain of — The leftwing media speculation on this will turn out to be completely false.

Also, the entire situation is extremely weird and none of the narratives the lefties are spinning fit any of the known facts. I can only imagine what the currently unknown facts are based on the obvious bumbling cover stories they’re trying to float.

It’s the epitome of Fake News. And why no one who isn’t either mentally challenged or a rabid leftwing partisan trusts them or believes them anymore.

It seems Musk had a tip on what the truth may be. No doubt he’s plugged into the Silicon Valley grapevine and the goings on in SF. And it’s as plausible as anything coming from WaPo, Politico, and the rest of the pinko press.

    Yeah, I’ve had my say and will give up trying to figure out what the facts are. We are all trying to gather the facts during a massive riot that has spun out of control. The “Day of the Locusts” in real life.

All y’all know that even suggesting something amiss will the official narrative makes You People misinformationists.

Spell checking is a real impediment to new word creation.

I’ve gone far afield on this story digging into respectable and not so much news sites and sources.

The most reasonable explanation I’ve come up with is a gay tryst gone sideways with someone who has a severe mental illness and that is not Mr Pelosi. I don’t understand what is the problem. A gay or bi-sexual in an open relationship in San Fran would not turn any heads. Why Paul felt the need to do this in this manor is puzzling.

    henrybowman in reply to diver64. | October 30, 2022 at 7:17 pm

    Maybe because between the two of them, only Depape had an unsuspended drivers’ license?
    Or because Depape didn’t have any good wine or ice cream at his place?
    Or maybe just because Paul was tired of having sex in the back of an abandoned school bus?

What I’m seeing is that Pelosi got into an altercation with his gay prostitute, probably tried to skip out on paying him. At least this time he got hammered at home.

Former Rep. Donna Edwards (D- MD) said on MSNBC’s “The Sunday Show”
that the attack on Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) husband, Paul Pelosi
was in part a result of the “Tea Party Movement.”

The VRWC was unavailable for comment

Gateway Pundit now has a piece up on the Pelosi Residence Security Measures which indicate my instincts were correct.
They got it all.

Considering his recent conviction for DUI, it’s at least possible that, on the night of the attack, Paul Pelosi was really hammered.

I want to hear the call that brought the police to the house.

Now NBC is revising their reporting. There was no “mysterious person”. Only two people were at the scene when police arrived. But that is NOT what the police chief originally reported. Someone opened the door for them and they found Pelosi and DePape wrestling for the hammer.

Do I have to say it?

2 things strike me about this “break in”- well, really more than that, but, a’la “The Dog That Didn’t Bark”, in not one report that I’ve read, did it say anything remotely close to, “ Paul Pelosi was awakened in the middle of the night by an intruder”, or anything of that nature. That is usually a pro-forma factoid for events such as these. Yet, nowhere was anything of the sort mentioned along these lines. Hence, one could interpret that to mean that he was awake at the time, 2:30-ish AM. Hmmm.
The 2nd thing that strikes me is that Paul Pelosi is becoming quite the liability for Mrs. Pelosi of late. That should not bode well for him.

Every right-wing news outlet that reports on this comments “we wish Paul Pelosi a speedy recovery”. Thank you for not wishing ill-will on Mr. P. I have watched the mainstream media gleefully clap when Republicans die, get shot, and are injured. This is never acceptable and as decent human beings, we should never stoop to their level- this would make us as bad as them.

I am running low on butter seasoning for my pop-corn.

So Paul Pelosi hires two gay prostitutes, and something happens. DePape wants to rob Pelosi? Pelosi stiffs (no pun intended) them?

Odd how the residence of the person third in line to be president is not outfitted with better alarms. The intruder in his underwear is able to make it to Nancy’s bedroom without tripping any alarms. The first authorities hear of the break-in is a 911 call from her husband. It is almost seems like the intruder was invited in to the home. I might want to invest in a better intrusion warning system or maybe come up with a more plusible story.

    Maybe the alarm system was off because Paul didn’t turn it on, and the security detail is there only when Nancy is there.

      She doesn’t get Secret Service protection, so I have no idea what she has for any sort of protection. She would only get Secret Service protection if it looked like there was a possibility she might be taking over for the president.

        Are you sure? She’s Speaker of the House, I think she gets it. And the President of the Senate, but that’s the VP anyway. And the president can assign it, which he would be likely to do for his political co-conspirators, I mean allies.

        But maybe her family doesn’t get it including her husband.

The police keep replacing one implausible story with a different but equally implausible story. Do they value their own credibility at all? It seems like every few hours Nancy gets more sloshed and directs SFPD to tell a different drunken story she just thought up.

    Ninth Dimension in reply to Ninth Dimension. | October 31, 2022 at 11:20 am

    If a criminal suspect told police as many different, conflicting stories as SFPD has told the public, it would certainly be viewed as evidence of lying. No more than one of those stories can be true. Or they could all be false to some degree.

There are literally thousands of news reports about Paul Pelsoi who was attacked by a homeless man and will make a full recovery.

In the same state, in the same week, a father and daughter were also attacked by a homeless man. Unfortunately, they will not recover because they’re both dead—but there’s not much reporting on that.

No politicians speaking out etc, etc. I guess their lives weren’t important,

nothing more than a peek deep inside the sordid lives of our “betters”.

If this rot is not dealt with sooner rather than later, we are doomed. Greece, Rome, Egypt, Carthage, every major “civilisation” we know about eventually dissolved from the rot that surely and inexhorably follows godless men.

Such a tawdry and trashy case befitting the Slime King and Queen of San Fransicko! And the laughable attempt to make this into some kind of a MAGA attack is so stupid….

Yet another story the mainstream press tells us we’re supposed to care about, but I don’t care about at all.

Why would I care if this guy got mugged? He doesn’t play a role in our government does he? (Surely he doesn’t trade on his wife’s insider stock tips either! Someone said he did …) I’m neutral-to-negative on the guy, whereas most crime victims I’m more positive about, meaning I care more that they’re victims of crime. Lots of them in San Francisco, vast numbers in Chicago, each deserving my caring at least as much as this guy.

Another pointless news story that the Dems are trying to exploit. Good on Prof. Jacobson pushing back against that. Biden saying that because of this we can’t point out his own fraudulent election is especially rich.

The ;legacy media is busily blaming anyone who opposed Pelosi’s policies and actions for this heinous crime by a mentally ill individual. Notice the rush to condemn and lynch all conservatives as opposed to the silence from the progressive world on attacks on Congressman Scalise and and the threat on Justice Kavanaugh and the riots of 2020

Given all the frantic lying in this failed cover-up attempt, I am going to assume the least horrible story is true until the evidence gets released.

That is, that Paul Pelosi was engaged in a bit of buggery, and he went home under the careful eye of his own security with a nutcase he had picked up at a bar. Said nutcase freaked out over God-knows-what.

I still cannot figure out is why, in the name of all that’s (un)holy, Paul Pelosi called 911 instead of his own security, to remove the nutcase once things went south. Perhaps it’s because it wasn’t his security, but Nancy’s.

Anyway, I hope the nutcase survives this dustup. A person should not have to die because Nancy Pelosi has been embarrassed.
