When the House Passed 'Build Back Better' Ted Lieu maskless while Boarding Cruise in NYC

Laws and mandates are for peasants...



While the House Passed 'Build Back Better' Ted Lieu Was Boarding Luxury Cruise in NYC





quote:

As we exclusively reported Friday night, Rep. Ted Lieu, who constantly berates those who aren’t following “the science” and is in favor of every totalitarian mandate and lockdown California “public health” officials promulgate, took his elderly parents on a cruise to Bermuda for Thanksgiving, then traveled to Hawaii for Christmas, and went to an NFL game at Los Angeles’ Sofi Stadium *maskless* with his wife and brother in October. Yet, he filed a “proxy letter” with the Clerk of the House of Representatives for the week of January 10, stating that he couldn’t travel to Washington DC due to the “ongoing public health emergency.”


quote:

That’s right. The “ongoing public health emergency” prevented him from traveling to do his taxpayer-funded job, but it didn’t prevent him from flying to New York City, traveling from the airport to the cruise terminal, and then sailing to Bermuda on a floating petri dish with his 80-year-old mother and 77-year-old father, and it didn’t prevent him from going to a professional sporting event with 70,237 other people – while maskless.


quote:

While Lieu was traveling by airplane for luxurious family vacations, we know from his numerous proxy letters he wasn’t traveling to his job in Washington, DC much last fall. You wouldn’t know that by looking at Lieu’s campaign account, though, since he spent quite a bit on airplane tickets in 2021 – far more than he did in 2020 – including some odd expenditures around the time that the cruise likely would have been booked. (While the government pays for a lot of Congressional travel to/from DC, Members also use campaign funds for that travel.) In fact, in 2020, from the time shutdowns really started (3/15) through the end of that year, Lieu’s campaign spent less than $2,000 on airfare – even though it was an election year. In 2021, though, Lieu’s campaign spent more than $20,000 on airfare just in the first nine months of the year, and $8,600 of that was spent on one day – August 3, 2021. In light of Lieu’s apparent reluctance to travel because of the pandemic and the fact that it wasn’t really a busy time in terms of campaign activity, that level of spending really sticks out.



quote:

But, hypothetically speaking, flying six people (i.e., Mrs. Lieu and the two children, Ted’s parents, and Ted’s brother) from California to New York, roundtrip, around Thanksgiving for the family cruise could get a little pricey – and the time frames line up.

There is a tremendous amount of scum infecting DC.

Ted Lieu is among the very worst of it.

A truly despicable person.

Democrat politicians and voters are above the laws they push on the rest of us. It’s crazy that anyone actually voted for these nuts.

It’s ok. This board tells me how conservative Asians are all the time.

One of the most punchable US reps, IMO.

After having the blinds pulled back on how American Elections really work in the 2020 POTUS Race……….maybe no one actually does ‘Vote’ for these nuts!

I've said it before and I'll say it again. The issue to focus on here is not the double standard. OBVIOUSLY there is one, but right now the biggest issue in the country and the world is that far too many people take these fools at their word that they too are afraid of Covid.

Pointing out these repeated actions by the very people ginning up all the fear ought to be about showing the world that they're clearly not personally afraid of any of this, because if they were they'd behave differently for their own safety. Just like those people out and about who we still wearing masks alone on a bike in the park who are clearly terrified, these politicians and entertainers we see like this routinely would be wearing them if they also were afraid.

They're not afraid, and likely never have been...so stop allowing them to dictate your lives based on their fearmongering they don't actually believe in.

We can move on to their other double standards once we begin to take the country back...

I believe Ted Lieu represents Malibu and Calabasas.

He doesn't have to worry about getting re-elected.

#StopAsianHate!

We'll get this about ANY criticism on Lieu, but the Leftist Hyenas remain absolutely silent on actual Asian hate that's occurring by one and only one specific group of people.

And when they pass laws for us peasants and then start rounding us up to put in camps, it's for our own good of course. Meanwhile they continue on with their parties and luxury cruises, while telling us to take the effing jab, wear a mask and shut the hell up.
