Vandals Trash Pelosi's Garage With Pig Head, Stimulus Demand

Vandals tagged House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s house with fake blood, a pig’s head, and an apparent demand to pass $2,000 stimulus checks. A picture said to be of Pelosi’s garage posted on Twitter shows messages written in black spray paint—“cancel rent,” “we want everything!”—alongside an anarchist symbol and “$2K,” a reference to the $2,000 proposed stimulus checks blocked by congressional Republicans. The vandals also placed a pig’s head and red paint along the driveway. Police confirmed to TMZ that they responded to a vandalism call at Pelosi’s house in the early hours of New Year’s Day.


I'm guessing false flag.

Congress handed Donald Trump a major defeat in the waning days of his presidency, as the Republican-led Senate voted to override his veto of a $740.5 billion defense policy bill. It’s the first time one of Trump’s vetoes has been surmounted.

The vote was 81 to 12 with voting continuing, easily exceeding the two-thirds threshold needed to override a veto, with support coming from both Republicans and Democrats as it did earlier in the House. The massive annual defense authorization measure now will become law.

Trump had sought to intimidate GOP senators into voting to sustain his veto, unleashing a bitter attack on fellow Republicans as the chamber prepared to begin the override process.

“Weak and tired Republican ‘leadership’ will allow the bad Defense Bill to pass,” Trump tweeted Dec. 29. “Negotiate a better Bill, or get better leaders, NOW!” he added.
