Nancy Pelosi Announces Reelection Campaign, Declares Crime in SF an ‘Isolated Situation’

Nancy Pelosi Announces Reelection Campaign, Declares Crime in SF an ‘Isolated Situation’

“We do have an isolated situation in downtown San Francisco, in the Tenderloin district and the rest. We have just said to the people there and the rest, who are very much concerned about it, that if there is crime and there is violence and there are drugs, there will be arrests and that’s the way it is.”

Like many of the most powerful people in Washington, DC, Nancy Pelosi is in her 80s and unwilling to retire gracefully.

On Friday, the former House Speaker, who is 83, officially announced she is running for reelection for the seat she has held for 36 years, explaining to a gushing Nicolle Wallace on MSNBC how San Francisco still allegedly needed her after all this time.

Incredibly, Pelosi tried to portray herself as a crime fighter, willing to go to the mat for her home city in the midst of its growing crime problems, which she boiled down to being an “isolated situation“:

The needs that our city has right now really call for me to stay another term,” Pelosi told Wallace.

“I have agreed to stay on another term in order to help meet the needs that we have now,” she said. “We’re a resilient city — we’ve had AIDS, we’ve had earthquakes, of course we’ve all had the pandemic. We intend to come out of this — resilient city that we are — even better.”

The only local issues that Pelosi addressed in her first interview since launching her re-election campaign earlier Friday were crime and homelessness — arguing that while the issues aren’t as bad as portrayed in the media, they still require action.

“We do have an isolated situation in downtown San Francisco, in the Tenderloin district and the rest,” Pelosi said. “We have just said to the people there and the rest, who are very much concerned about it, that if there is crime and there is violence and there are drugs, there will be arrests and that’s the way it is.”

Amazingly, she also insinuated that the New York Times is turning right-wing considering they’ve stepped up coverage of San Francisco’s crime and business woes as well in recent months.

“Let me just say that these attacks [on San Francisco] are not unusual from the right,” Pelosi declared. “We have the New York Times having a field day about one thing or another in San Francisco, and we wonder about them, too,” she also said in the video below.


Pelosi’s claim of an “isolated” crime “situation” in the Tenderloin neighborhood doesn’t square with the facts. Over the summer, the Mission district was rocked by a series of violent crime incidents including a mass shooting that wounded nine, crimes that had some residents talking about packing up and leaving. Others complained of a rise in homeless encampments, gang problems, and drug use.

A similar situation is also playing out in the South of Market neighborhood, which is home to the Speaker Nancy Pelosi Federal Building.

As Legal Insurrection noted last month,  the Health and Human Services Dept. has advised some workers in the Pelosi building to keep working from home until further notice due to safety concerns stemming from crime problems including open-air drug use.

Video taken from outside the building tells the story:

With all of that in mind, you will be fascinated (or maybe not) to find out that Pelosi thinks San Francisco’s “values” should become America’s values:

Now more than ever our City needs us to advance San Francisco values and further our recovery. Our country needs America to show the world that our flag is still there, with liberty and justice for ALL. That is why I am running for reelection — and respectfully ask for your vote. -Nancy

I mean at this point Pelosi is almost literally writing the campaign ads for GOP Congressional candidates going into the 2024 election year.

Keep talking, Nancy. Just keep on talking.

If you look at the top 25 crime-ridden cities they all have liberal leadership in common. The data came out a week ago.

FFS can’t these folks just give it up and go home? Clearly not. Applies to some on both sides. The lure of power, prestige and influence is overwhelming for these folks which is why they shouldn’t be returned to office. Most of these narcissists stopped caring about ‘doing good’ some time ago in favor using their position to do well for themselves.

She has to continue to actively cover her crimes. If she was out of power they might tie everything to her neck and toss her overboard.

    Agreed. Pelosi will never retire voluntarily.

    Gavin saying he won’t challenge Biden-Harris and NP declaring her candidacy – all in the same week – is another interesting development.

    That’s the “riding the tiger” problem. Same ride Wayne LaPierre is on.

Tearing the State of the Union forever revealed who she is, and it’s not a pretty picture, for ANY Speaker of the House or person, for that matter.

When you own the levers of government, the courts, the schools, the banks….you can be “liberated” to shred not only a speech but the law.

It looks like Nan had some fresh plastic put on her face. SHe looks very much like Kathy Hochul, now. They could be sisters – the evil sisters from Cinderella.

Her cosmetic surgeon is one of the happiest people on the planet. Any time he needs something all he has to do is send Nanzi an email saying that it’s time for her to get some more work done on that face.

    I looked it up.. she was born March 26, 1940, There is not a phonier looking person in this country. Disgusting. I wonder how many times she has had procedures.. How does she expect anyone to take her seriously? Oh that’s right,, it’s CA, SF,, nothing is serious there.

      I’m glad that she’s not on TV much, anymore, because I was always repulsed by her looks. She always seemed to be 20 seconds away from her face melting onto the floor. There was an unsettling feeling watching her and her draped skeleton ramble on about some more leftist insanity. Frankly, she looks about 10 years older than she actually is, though this latest round of plastic and botox probably wound the clock back for a few days.

Wonder what happened to the SnapCrap app and the SF poop map?

Wasn’t there violent crime in her own neighborhood – as in her own home?

Fresh facelift.. Shame they can’t fix what’s underneath.

    Oh yeah. Definitely had the barnacles scraped off, new bondo filler, primed and painted.

    If they stretch that skin much more those sutures are going to start popping loose when the weather changes.

Nancy was very pretty in her day. But her day has passed and she must move on.

Declares Crime in SF an ‘Isolated Situation’

Isolated in your district? I think not. Across the Bay Bridge the residents of Oakland are bitching and moaning about crime. They are prepping to recall their Soros DA.

LA and now even San Diego are experiencing high rates of violent crime. It is not ‘isolated’, on the contrary it is widespread.

    She was, but clearly way past her sell-by date and warranty.. The problem is evil rots from the inside out and the head down., no amount of spackle can fix the result. This woman is an evil-doer.

SF the homeless junkie capitol of america. Pelosi gives herself pat on back and raise.

She needs to be able to afford that ice cream…

“Declares Crime in SF an ‘Isolated Situation’”
Isolated to California, no doubt.

    Isolated so much so, that it happened in her own home. She is a joke, and anybody who takes her serious has mental problems themselves.

No repub can win that seat, the only hope is that somebody from outside the San Fran Dem Machine primaries her and wins. The second highest dem in the primary lost by 61% in 2022.
She spent some $25 million to keeo her seat, I doubt the locals will vote her out.

The biggest crimes are occurring in Washington D.C., perpetrated by government officials and bureaucrats.

“Isolated situation”

Your posterior hurts, Pelosi. *eyeroll*
