House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s son, Paul Pelosi Jr., has been called out by the Daily Mail over his close ties to “a host of fraudsters, rule-breakers and convicted criminals,” yet has never been charged himself.
Once dubbed the ‘rising prince’ of the Pelosi political dynasty by the now-defunct Men’s Vogue, Pelosi Jr. had “years-long repeated business dealings” with unsavory characters, in what may have been efforts to curry favor with the Democrat’s powerful family.
Via the Daily Mail, Pelosi Jr.’s links to alleged lawbreakers include:
- The 52-year-old joined the board of a biofuel company after it defrauded investors according to an SEC ruling, and whose CEO was convicted after bribing Georgia officials
- Pelosi Jr. was president of an environmental investment firm that turned out to be a front for two convicted fraudsters
- He joined a lithium mining company and received millions of shares, allegedly issued as part of a massive $164 million fraud
- He was vice president of a company previously embroiled in an investigation of scam calls that targeted senior citizens
- He has close business ties with a man accused by the Department of Justice of running a fake UN charity that stole investors’ money
- A medical company Pelosi Jr. worked for tested drugs on people without FDA authorization, according to an FDA investigation
According to the report, “sources close to the Democrat power broker’s son – and even Pelosi Jr. himself – admit that some of his business dealings may have arisen from savvy entrepreneurs hiring him in an attempt to curry favor with his powerful family.”
For starters, Paul Pelosi landed a $180,000 per year job as Senior Vice President at data company InfoUSA – while he was also a full-time loan officer at Countrywide Home Loans in San Mateo and had zero experience in database marketing. According to investigators, between 2001 and 2004, before Pelosi Jr. joined the company, InfoUSA knowingly sold fraudsters the data of millions of Americans – which was then used to scam elderly people out of their life savings.
According to a 2007 New York Times report on the investigation, InfoUSA sold a list of 500,000 gamblers over age 55 called ‘Oldies but Goodies’, which described its members as ‘gullible’.
InfoUSA also sold lists of people with cancer or Alzheimer’s called ‘Suffering Seniors’, the Times reported. The data company denied their lists had such titles.
Iowa investigators found emails showing InfoUSA staff knew the firms they were selling to were being investigated for fraudulently targeting old people, but continued to sell the data regardless, the state’s AG said. -Daily Mail
More on Gupta from Inc.com:
How about this for a story? A man leaves India for Omaha with $58 in his pocket. He starts a company in 1972 that reaches peak revenue of $400 million, spends a night in the Lincoln bedroom, puts Bill Clinton on its payroll, sails Bill on his 80-foot yacht with an all-female crew, and flies Hillary Clinton to campaign events on his corporate jet.
And he’s as happy as a clam — despite getting sued by shareholders, being pushed out as CEO, incurring over $12 million in debts to settle shareholder lawsuits, and using insurance to pay $13 million to settle a lawsuit alleging that he sold his company — netting him $150 million for his 40% stake — at too low a price.
The man is Vinod Gupta, former CEO of InfoUSA, a company that built a database that marketers use to sell everything from consumer products to politicians.
Gupta got himself into a larger-than-life heap of trouble.
And according to the Daily Mail, some people thought Gupta put Pelosi Jr. on his payroll to curry favor with his powerful mother. Jr. denied it at the time.
“I don’t think that’s really what happens,” Paul told NewsMax in 2007. “I don’t see it that way, but I could see why you’d ask the question… I guess you always wonder why somebody hires you, right?”
Meanwhile, Paul was recruited to be the president of an environmental investment company – Natural Blue Resources. According to 2014 charges against the company, Pelosi Jr. was recruited along with former New Mexico governor and AG Toney Anaya, to create the company and ostensibly find new underground aquifers in New Mexico.
A SEC investigaiton, however, found that the company was “secretly controlled” by two convicted criminals – making Pelosi Jr. a cutout used (along with others) to let them “personally profit from the company without disclosing their past brushes with the law to investors.”
The two men? James Cohen and Joseph Corazzi.
Cohen had previously been jailed for financial fraud, and Corazzi had been charged with breaking federal securities laws and was permanently barred from acting as an officer of a public company.
Though Anaya was charged, Pelosi Jr. was not. Pelosi Jr. served as president and board member of Natural Blue from its public stock exchange listing in August 2009 for five months, and served on the board of another company run by Cohen’s wife. -Daily Mail
The SEC concluded that Pelosi Jr. didn’t play a “meaningful role” in one of Natural Blue’s key transactions, and “strenuously object[ed]’ to proposed fundraising contracts, was ousted from the board by the accused fraudsters,” ultimately appearing as a witness for the prosecution.
Then, in October 2013, Paul landed a job as VP of biofuel company FOGFuels – one month after the SEC announced that it had filed charges against the company and its founder, Paul Marshall (via the Mail).
The federal complaint said Marshall stole $3 million from mostly elderly investors in FOGFuels and another of his companies ‘to pay for a variety of Marshall’s personal expenses, including luxury vacations, child support and alimony payments, and private school tuition and camps for his children.’
At the same time, an Atlanta, Georgia official was found guilty of helping arrange city contracts for Marshall’s wireless internet company in exchange for bribes.
Marshall had previously agreed to cooperate with prosecutors in his $3 million fraud case, and was not charged in the bribery case.
FOGFuels, of which Pelosi Jr. was Vice President at the time, also won an Atlanta City Council resolution to turn waste restaurant grease into biofuel. -Daily Mail

300,000 Brits Have ‘Stealth’ Heart Condition That Could Kill Them ‘In 5 Years,’ Researchers Say
Doctors are urgently warning people in the United Kingdom that 300,000 Brits are living with a “stealth” heart condition that could kill them within five years.
A report by The Sun warned that some 300,000 Brits in the United Kingdom are living with a “stealth” heart disease that could kill them in five years, according to researchers in the UK and Australia.
A third of the people with the mysterious heart disease are “likely to have no idea they are infected because they do not show clear symptoms.”
The disease, aortic valve stenosis (AS) is a heart condition that “often shows no symptoms until it’s already too late.”
From the report:
The condition is when the heart’s aortic valve narrows, reducing or blocking blood flow from the heart into the main artery to the body (aorta).
This can cause chest pain, dizziness, fatigue, or a rapid, fluttering heartbeat in the more severe and life-threatening cases.
Some people are more prone to getting it, including those of older age, with diabetes, high blood pressure, or heart conditions from birth.
Given the ageing of the UK population, it is thought that there may be a large pool of as yet undiagnosed people.
Does the COVID-19 vaccine adversely impact the heart?
Researchers in the UK and Australia set out to estimate how many people could be living with the condition now, and of those, how many are at risk of death.
According to the researchers, 1.5% of people over the age of 55 in the UK at any one time could have severe AS, equal to around 300,000 people.
Just under 200,000 of them were symptomatic, indicating that they had a severe case of the disease and were eligible for surgery.
The remaining 90,000 had a “silent” case and will “probably not be diagnosed” unless they are screened for other issues.
Without timely treatment, researchers say, an estimated 172,859 people will die over the next five years heading into 2024, meaning 35,000 people every year, with 10,000 of those deaths being among 55-64 year olds.
Studies have shown that people with a severe case of AS who do not get treated with surgery have a 25% chance of dying within the first year after symptoms begin, with the risk increasing to 50% in the second year.
The researchers, led by Geoffrey Strange, a cardiologist at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Sydney, said: “In conclusion, this study suggests that severe [aortic stenosis] is a common condition affecting many individuals within the UK population aged 55 [and older].
“Without appropriate detection and intervention, their survival prospects are likely to be poor.”
The researchers are concerned the NHS will not be able to cope with the wave of older people with aortic disease over the next few years.
The research comes as some remain concerned that myocarditis and other heart conditions known to be side effects of the controversial COVID-19 vaccines are not being taken seriously.
Some suggested the new warning regarding AS and the COVID-19 vaccines could be linked, though National File was not able to find evidence confirming this.
It’s the jabs!! Don’t flannel the truth! This stealth heart disease bollocks is just the cover up to justify the coming deaths!!!https://t.co/EPtx83GdMV

Judge Forces Trump Attorney to Turn Over 1,500 Pages a Day for Liz Cheney’s Amusement
A California judge is forcing Trump Attorney John Eastman to review and turn over at least 1,500 documents a day in the Democrat Party’s continued harassment and abuse of the opposition party.
Eastman, a staunch Trump supporter, is a major target of the communist left in their ongoing attempt to crush their opponents and send a message to the people of America. NO dissent will be allowed.
Liz Cheney and her committee members must be very pleased.
Eastman was outspoken in his belief that the 2020 election was stolen from the most popular president in American history. Trump recorded more votes by a sitting President in a national election. A majority of Americans to this day believe the election was decided by fraudulent means.
A federal judge Wednesday night ruled that former President Donald Trump’s lawyer must review at least 1,500 pages of records per business day and immediately transfer any unprivileged documents to the House Jan. 6 committee.
Judge David Carter, of the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, ordered attorney John Eastman to begin producing pages to congressional investigators beginning Friday, Politico reported.
Any documents Eastman deems privileged must be given to Carter. If the committee challenges the lawyer’s claim, the judge will review the records to determine whether the assertion was valid before holding a hearing to adjudicate the privilege disputes.
Carter earlier rejected Eastman’s attempt to block the committee’s subpoena for 19,000 pages of emails held by his former employer, Chapman University. Eastman has claimed that many of the emails relate to his legal clients and therefore be subject to potential attorney-client privilege.
The Wednesday night ruling showed that Carter is taking a more hands-on approach than any federal judge so far to assist the Jan. 6 select committee’s effort to access specific documents from a reluctant witness.
