The real Nancy Pelosi — multi-millionaire, non-union resort, dining and winery baroness

By Mick Gregory


Nancy Pelosi’s radical political views are exactly what have kept her elected in San Francisco, along with the flow of union campaign money. The staunch “union supporter” Pelosi has even received the Cesar Chavez Award from the United Farm Workers Union. But her $25 million Napa vineyards and winery, she and her husband own is a non-union shop.

The hypocrisy doesn’t stop there. Pelosi has received more money from the Hotel Employees and Restaurant Employees union than any other member of Congress in recent election cycles.

The multi-millionaire investors own a large stake in an exclusive resort hotel in Wine Country, the Napa Valley Auberge Du Soleil Resort. It has more than 250 employees. But none of them are in a union, according to Peter Schweizer, author of Do As I Say, (Not As I Do) Hypocrisy of Democrats,  and a regular contributor to the New York Times.

Pelosi is also partners in a restaurant chain called Piatti, which has 900 employees. The chain is  (you might have guessed)  a non-union shop.

  1. “In brief,” Rep. Pelosi said, “two words sum up Jack Murtha’s qualifications to lead the scouring of the House: unindicted co-conspirator.”

    Henh…I view the next two years as a target rich environment for hilarity and incredulity.

  2. Now y’all are just bein’ mean. She has said that she is going to raise the minimum wage, you cynics.

    /Which farms and restaurants do not have to pay anyway.

  3. Yeah, raise the minimum wage, that’s about all she will do for the unions.

  4. Well if raising the minimum wage will benefit any union, those members should not be payin’ union dues.

  5. The unions use the min. wage as the baseline for all of their pay scales. The min. wage goes up, so does their union payscale, disproportionately.

  6. Well that would make my son, union master ironworker, 4-day work week,very happy except that he’s earning more off the job than on the job at this point.

  7. I never watch Hannity on FNC, because of that pencil neck LLL that co-hosts the show, but must admit, when I hear, or in this case, see some of the segments they have, I wish I had the stomach to watch. Thank God for the innernut.
    BTW, Juan Williams is such shill.

  8. Hmmm…seems SanFranNan has some questionable real estate skeletons in her closet, just like Dingy-Harry Reid.

  9. But don’t call it corruption!

  10. Well, I won’t call it her culture either.
    /ewwww

  11. See y’all later on.

  12. Nancy…henh!

  13. Henh…again.

  14. Henh-henh-henh!

  15. Does she have thick ankles? I wouldn’t think so, a little lipo can cure that.

  16. Wow. This Nancy Pelosi story has gone viral! I had 500-600 page views today. Thanks to citizen journalists like Nuke, Writer Chick, No-2-Libs, and Vimto!

    We are exposing the Democrats like never before.

  17. I don’t know about you Mick, but an exposed Nancy Pisslousy is not something I want to see.
    /my eyes-my eyes

  18. I.did.not.need.that.visual.
    /heh

  19. Me either, nuke.
    That she has a virus doesn’t surprise me, though.

  20. She is a perfect symbol of the Democrat party.

  21. Oh Nannnnnnnnnncy!
    Macbeth is calling you.

    False face must hide what the false heart doth know.

  22. Heh. I was speaking to a very nice young man today and asked him questions about his field, and whether he thought it would be a viable field for somebody of my age to enter. He told me that when he was in graduate school, there were actually people in their 40s going into the program, one guy was actually 48! “Whoah, 48? THAT old?” (and he wasn’t using Depends?)

  23. What field was that, Swampie?

  24. Hey nuke!
    You ought to be nominated.

  25. Well..Well..Well!
    Corruption? Oh, it’s only the eeeeevil Republicans.

    Just two days after retaking the House and promising to end the “culture of corruption,” Rep. Charles Rangel and a dozen other congressmen rubbed elbows with business leaders in sunny Panama.

    They attended a conference in Panama City’s luxurious $190-per-night Caesar Park hotel – which has a sauna, pool and 24-hour casino “all set in a lush tropical setting more like a resort than a business hotel,” according to its Web site.

    While some members say they paid their own way, the conference had big-bucks corporate sponsors, including Pfizer, Citibank, AT&T, American Airlines and Time Warner.

  26. Oh, Panama City, PANAMA. I was worried for a minute that they were infesting my favorite place on the Redneck Riviera.

  27. You know ol’Gravel voice ain’t gonna accept no payoffs, unless the setting is exotic.

  28. Ol’Nuke must still be feeling poorly.

  29. This has a been a long day. I finished work this morning at 3 a.m., then up again @ 7:30 to hit the feed store. I ran into a couple friends there delivering their round bales, and stood around commiserating about the price of beef and lamb for awhile. Then a woman driving a Lexus stopped by, ran in for a minute, and came back out. We watched her drive away in silence, broken by Suze saying “well, ain’t WE Miz Snooty Bitch?” “Yeah, did you look at that? Her clothes were ironed and color coordinated. Who in the hell does she think she is, anyway?” We looked at each other and started giggling since we were dressed in our usual working denim and T-shirts and boots with that distinctive barnyard fragrance. Then back home to unload feed, feed the livestock, go to work, then off to speak with that nice young man, come home, feed the livestock, go to work out at the gym, back home to feed us, and now it’s time to get back to work until @ 3 a.m., so good night, all.

  30. Yeah, his eyes probably feel like they have sand in them.

  31. Sweet Baby James is a good goodnight song and it works on the Nancy Pelosi thread as well.

    /Moonbat central.

  32. I’ll never forget the episode of the Simpson’s when Homer had lasik. His eyes crusted immediately after he was told to use the eyedrops, and I mean cartoon type crust.
    I’ll also never forget the episode of the Simpson’s they ran Sunday. Really pissed me off, and a whole bunch of others.

  35. Why Intellectuals Love Defeat.
    http://www.tcsdaily.com/article.aspx?id=111006A

    Those are some seriously screwed-up minds.

  36. That ain’t how we do it in Dixie. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D425x657NQk&NR

  37. I don’t understand why America should be “defeate” and that it would be “good”. Well, then. In the same vein, I suppose taking all the intellectuals that want to be defeated out and beating the crap outta them would be a good thing, too.

  38. Whoops. “defeated”. Dang letters disappear under the right hand margin and I can’t see what I’m typing.

  39. knock some sense into ’em

  40. youtube is down 😦

  41. Their defeatist attitude isn’t due to their so-called intellectualism.
    They’re still the pissed off little boy or girl, because they didn’t get picked to play with the other kids, because they weren’t physically talented enough, not good looking enough, or were too frightened. So seeing those that are stronger, both physically and/or emotionally, lose face, gives them a measure of revenge.
    Of course, they then use rhetoric to justify the entire matter, as though they are somehow detached from it all, or worse yet, above such considerations of winning or losing.

  42. Well, here’s something that is bound to cheer them up! Australian scientists make huge breakthrough in air guitar technology. Battle of the air bands will never be the same.

  43. Let us first get all the facts correct before labeling individuals as hypocrites:

    For Pelosi and any other Agricultural employer to willingly seek to hire Unionized Labor or discuss with their employees to possibly of unionizing such action is against California State Law, the California Agricultural Labor Relations Act, which became effective on August 28, 1975:

    The purpose of the California Agricultural Labor Relations Act is to ensure peace in the fields of California by guaranteeing justice for all agricultural workers and stability in agricultural labor relations. The Act seeks to achieve these ends by providing orderly processes for protecting, implementing, and enforcing the respective rights and responsibilities of employees, employers and labor organizations in their relations with each other.

    The agency created to implement this Act is the Agricultural Labor Relations Board. Within its statutory assignment, the ALRB has two principal functions:

    1. To determine and implement, through secret ballot elections, the right of agricultural employees to choose whether or not they wish to be represented by a labor organization for the purpose of collective bargaining with their employer; and

    2. To prevent and remedy certain kinds of conduct, called unfair labor practices, on the part of both employers and labor organizations, which, the Act declares, are destructive of the rights of self-organization and collective bargaining.

    ALRB’s authority is divided between a Board composed of five members and a General Counsel, all of whom are appointed by the Governor and subject to confirmation by the Senate. Together, they are responsible for the prevention of those practices which the Act declares to be impediments to the free exercise of employee rights. When a charge is filed, the General Counsel conducts an investigation to determine whether an unfair labor practice has been committed. If he believes that there has been a violation, he issues a complaint. The Board provides for a hearing to determine whether a respondent has committed the unfair labor practice alleged in the complaint.

    Under the statute, the Board may delegate, and in practice has delegated, its authority to hear such cases to Administrative Law Judges (ALJ’s) who take evidence and make initial recommendations in the form of written decisions with respect to issues of fact or law raised by the parties. Any party may appeal any of the findings, conclusions or recommendations of the ALJ to the Board, which then reviews the record and issues its own decision and order in the case. Parties dissatisfied with the Board’s order may petition for review in the Court of Appeal. Attorneys for the Board defend the decisions rendered by the Board. If review is not sought or is denied, the Board may seek enforcement of its order in superior court.

    When a final remedial order requires that parties be made whole for unfair labor practices committed against them, the Board has followed the practice of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) in holding supplemental proceedings to determine the amount of liability. These hearings, called compliance hearings, are also typically held before ALJ’s who write recommended decisions for review by the Board. Once again, parties dissatisfied with the decision and order issued by the Board upon review of the ALJ’s decision may petition for review of the Board’s decision in the Court of Appeal. If the court denies the petition for review or orders the Board’s order in a compliance case enforced, the Board may seek enforcement in superior court.

    In addition to the Board’s authority to issue decisions in unfair labor practice cases, the Board, through personnel in various regional offices, is responsible for conducting elections to determine whether a majority of the employees of an agricultural employer wishes to be represented by a labor organization or, if the employees are already so represented, to determine whether they wish to continue to be represented by that labor organization, a rival labor organization or no labor organization at all. Chapter 5 of the ALRA empowers the Board to direct an election provided that Board investigation reveals the existence of a bonafide question concerning such representation. Because of the seasonal nature of agriculture and the relatively short periods of peak employment, the Act provides for a speedy election process, mandating that elections be held within seven days from the date an election petition is filed, and within 48 hours after a petition has been filed in the case of a strike. Any party believing that an election ought not to have been conducted, or that misconduct occurred which tended to affect the outcome of the election, or that the election was otherwise not fairly conducted, may file objections to the election. The objections are reviewed by the Board’s Executive Secretary, who determines whether they establish a prima facie case that the election should not have been held or that the conduct complained of affected its outcome. If such a prima facie case is found, a hearing is held before an Administrative Law Judge acting in the capacity of an Investigative Hearing Examiner to determine whether the Board should refuse to certify the election as a valid expression of the will of the employees. The Investigative Hearing Examiner’s conclusions may be appealed to the Board. Except in very limited circumstances, court review of any decision of the Board in representation matters may be had only in connection with an order in an unfair labor practice case which is based upon the Board’s certification.

    Pelosi Vineyard Employee Wages:
    According to Monsignor John Brenkle, a well known advocate for farm workers and is involved in labor negotiations with the same labor manager the Pelosis use, the Pelosis pay a $1.25 an hour more than workers at Napa’s biggest union winery.

    When Peter Schweizer of the Hoover Institution the individual who started this controversy was asked if he had researched the above facts before he called Pelosi a hypocrite, he responded “It’s really for her to explain why there is this inconsistency. It’s not my responsibility to go and find out how every single particular circumstance is handled on the Pelosi vineyard.”

    The hypocrisy is not that Pelosi, as Schweizer said “has won the Cesar Chavez award from the United Farm Workers Union and yet they don’t use members of the United Farm Workers Union to actually pick the grapes on their winery” it is that Schweizer is criticizing an individual who is operating within the confines of the law. Until Pelosi’s employees decide to unionize and we see how she responds, let us not state Pelosi is a hypocrite.

    “Pelosi’s Napa Business Scrutinized – Hypocrisy Or Conservative Hatchet Job?” by Mark Matthews http://abclocal.go.com/kgo/story?section=politics&id=4804677

  44. Unfortunately, the ascension of Pelosi and Harry Ried mean the descension of our government for the next two years. We need to work much harder to throw the scum out.

  45. You know it Nick. We have to take politics to the same level that the Democrat progressives have.

  46. Progressives?
    Pro-regressives, is more like it.

  47. HEY CHRIS BENKERT, YOU JACKASS, THE REASON PEOPLE LIKE PELOSI HIRE ILLEGALS IS BECAUSE THEY CAN PAY THEM LESS, YOU IDIOT, NOT MORE. YOU ARE THE SAME BRAND OF IDIOTS WHO CLAIM OPPRESSED PEOPLE IN CUBA ARE ACTUALLY HAPPY WITH CASTRO. OR EVEN MORE AUBSURD, IRAQIS MISS SADDAM. I CHECKED OUT THE WEBSITES YOU POINTED OUT. THEY HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO RELEVANCE TO NANCIES HIRING PRACTICES. THEY JUST QUOTE CA LABOR LAWS, YOU DISGUSTING LIER. THOSE POOR OPPRESSED ILLEGALGS WORKING FOR PELOSI CAN’T SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES BECAUSE SHE WILL HAVE THEM DEPORTED AND REPLACED BEFORE YOU CAN BAT AN EYBROW.

  48. BY THE WAY CHRIS, HOW CAN ILLEGALS DECIDE TO UNIONIZE WHEN THEY ARE IN THIS COUNTRY ILLEGALLY. THEY HAVE NO FREE CHOICE, SO NANCY CAN RAPE THEM FOR THEIR LABOR WITH IMPUNITY.

  49. Well, Mark, he can’t actually accuse her of being an eeevil rich person, exploiting the ‘working classes’ now can he. She’s a leftard! She takes her orders from the Union bosses like any good Dhimmicrat, as long as they don’t expect her to actually behave any differently than she does.

  50. such a cynical crew
    /sigh

  51. Henh…I call it mature skepticism.

  52. Good targeted hits Mark against Chris, the propagandist for Pelosi. We have to get in their faces this time. The next election in ’08 is for all the marbles.

    We are seeing some thinking people here at your site, Nuke and No2Libs. We can’t think that talk alone does anything. We have to communicate with the middle of the roaders and show them what scum socialists are.

  53. […] The real Nancy Pelosi — multi-millionaire, non-union resort, dining and winery baroness @ Nuke’s news & views […]

  54. […] The real Nancy Pelosi — multi-milliona […]

  55. Republican dittoheads claim that Obama is a socialist and his actions are those of a socialist. If our country rebounds, as it certainly appears to be doing, his actions have been the right ones to take. Thus, Republican dittoheads, have to deal with the FACT that what they called socialism worked. How sad for America. Fox and the Party of No.
