David DePape, an alleged illegal alien who reportedly broke into the home of Nancy and Paul Pelosi and stands accused of trying to kill Paul Pelosi with a hammer has quite a resume:
- He is described by his ex-wife as mentally ill.
- He is an illegal alien.
- He reportedly is a frequent user of hallucinogenic drugs.
- The bus he lived in sported a Black Lives Matter flag on the outside.
- His neighbors describe him as a paranoid.
- A website registered in his name and email was set up in September (frenlyfrens.com) and subsequently populated with material scraped from a Russian site that specializes in QANON material.
So was this just a random attack by one of the usual nutcases that populate San “Fecal” Francisco? Perhaps. It is still not clear how this guy could just walk up to Pelosi’s home and force his way in and calmly find Paul Pelosi tucked into bed. Allow Pelosi to get out of bed and call 9-11 and then calmly walk downstairs to greet the police before he coldcocks Pelosi with a hammer to the head.
The creation of DePape’s website in September and its population with QANON images originally created by Russia’s IRA seems way too convenient of a coincidence. It will be interesting to see if Federal and State prosecutors follow through and take this guy to trial. My guess is that he will occupy the limelight up to election night here in the United States as the Democrats try to convert him into a MAGA poster boy and blame “the attack” on Donald Trump. I also believe that sometime after November 8, he will be declared mentally ill, the charges will be dropped and he will be shuffled off to some psychiatric facility.
I do not know if this was a deliberate Democrat attempt to fabricate an October Surprise to damage Republicans or is just a serendipitous event that the Democrats have seized on to try to save themselves from an election massacre. But it is not having the desired effect. DePape is not only a horror of a human being, he is the emblematic of the culture that infects San Francisco and other Democrat controlled hell holes. If anything, Depape’s escapade is just another reminder to Republican and Independent voters why Democrat rule, especially in large urban centers, is a toxic nightmare.
One other interesting tidbit–the lead FBI agent assigned to this case is a junior agent with roughly two years on the job (she was hired in 2019 and then spent about six months in training at Quantico). You can read the full charging document at the end of Jim Hoft’s review of unanswered questions surrounding this strange event (click here).
Finally, what are your suggestions for musical themes that should be included in the made for TV movie that is surely going to appear one of these days? Here are my suggestions:
Peter, Paul and Mary?
How about Peter Gabriel?
Devin Santana says
Jack Heslin says
Thanks for your commentary, Larry, it is always insightful.
Bob Bishop says
Since Nancy Pelosi is 3rd in line for the Presidency, there would be highly sophisticated motion protectors and monitoring cameras. Also, Secret Service protection. How did he get into the gated community? Did Nancy Pelosi’s son let the police in the home? So many questions.
Larry Johnson says
Actually Bob, she is second. VP then Nancy.
God have mercy on us!
Dudley Does Right says
While I am encouraged that Mr Paul is no longer swerving dangerously on the road in a Porsche, it appears that while his wife is away he is still getting hammered…
Dan Farrand says
Why should these people have extraordinary protection ? It’s not like they can’t be easily replaced. Do they have some special skills or knowledge. The whole idea that those occupying roles in the government are important in themselves seems to be contrary to the whole idea of the Republic.
Are we not always told that we should respect the Office. If someone bumps off someone who occupies the office, the office itself is not threatened. Plug someone new in and move on.
Doesnt this obsessive concern about the safetey of public officials make us weaker and less resilient as a society ? Again, they are easily replaced.
I understand the dynamic people worry about if government officials were to be routinely murdered. Just look at Mexico. But it seems to me that the security obsessions in the US reveal more about how fragile the whole scheme is than it does about concerns for “our democracy”
Bob In Portland says
Growing up in the sixties, myself and most Americans witnessed the leading political leaders of the left assassinated by the government, so protection for politicians and their families seems to be a logical step. Of course, if the government is doing the killing then that makes protecting them more problematic.
Mr. Depape appears to be a parody of what Middle America imagines what San Francisco is. He, as we see here in the comments, is a symbol which may tick up fear in the Republicans. Political analysis often gets muddled about this time in the election cycle.
Larry, My spidey sense says a male prostitute deal gone wrong – maybe when the John could get no satisfaction (Rolling stones). It is SF, after all.
Larry Johnson says
Well, the only thing consistent with that is the time and Depape’s presence in the house. If PP was a chickenhawk surely he’d do better than a middle aged, overweight, hygeine-challenged mentally ill dude who has never reported to have been gay and seems to have been married to a woman at one point. I think PP didn’t know what was going on, but someone on his wife’s staff did…
A fellow in my SoCal YC was married to a wealthy women for over 30 years He always seemed to have much younger oddball men around the house. They were described as the new Gardner or Dockboy or some such cover…
Years later it turned out that these young men were all homeless gay prostitutes. Massive amounts of drugs also involved.
martin mkultra7 says
How do you make a hormone?Don’t pay him
Highly likely. See https://theduran.com/this-is-the-paul-pelosi-story-elon-musk-briefly-tweeted-videothis-is-the-story-elon-musk-briefly-tweeted-video/
Have trust and confidence in the US Justice System.
The accused will receive a fair trial, the prosecution and defence will have access to all relevant records physical and electronic.
The accused will be extensively and publicly, cross examined by legal counsel to determine who the accused associates with and also identify any State or Federal employees the accused as been in contact with in the last 12 months. ( including who pays for the drug habits and burgers.)
Remain neurotic America and carry on.
PS. A third person allegedly answered the door ! “ Where’s Nancy?”
Ben Haskell says
Sarcasm?? Otherwise, no, DePape will not get a fair trial. He will get a low paid public defender, and they will chose the most incompetent of all.
Alex Thrace says
Assuming there is no suicide in his immediate future
My sense is that he will be Epsteined.
Ricardo Ramirez says
If this is what it looks like, this Paul Palosi granpa dude is raging with wild stamina, impressive really.
Jim Giles says
Anarchy in Brazil.
Yep, definitely, Peter Gabriel’s “Sledgehammer”…. !? :-)))
A fan from the Netherlands, living in Canada …
Read the article with some amazement … , also a related article on Southfront.org.
USA seems to ever quickly to disintegrate.
Larry: my vote goes to Peter Gabriel’s Sledgehammer, with MC Hammer as my 2nd preference.
Peter Paul and Mary surely “if I had a hammer”.
Dazed and Confused says
Good Stuff Larry.
I heard reports that the police response time was under 2 minutes, with average SF response time close to 8 minutes. Hmm….
Where were all the security agents from the Capital Police, etc.?
Seems choreographed … get with Smollett for to ID Contractor …
Wait, some people describe a drinking binge as getting hammered … is this what husband Paul, a very affable gentleman with superior investment skills, now defines as getting hammered?
Mary S says
The most probable explanation is a local op. Someone at ground level to manipulate the subject into showing up at Pelosi’s house and someone higher up to order security to stand down so he can make his entrance. Probably someone in local government and someone from Pelosi’s staff. in collusion. Appears to be tailored to give Pelosi a narrative to use for personal reasons, probably once she’s in the minority.
Appears to be designed for a political rather than criminal purpose so put young law enforcement on it with no perspective and no real experience and let them do their thing. Federal charges are eventually dropped and the narrative just kind of marinates until after the elections when Pelosi needs to use it. Has the same feel as the Jan. 6 setup but without Federal involvement.
I’d love to be a fly on the wall during one of your conversations on this Larry. Given your background I’m sure you have a much better developed picutre of this than you’re letting on.
Bob In Portland says
Why local authorities? Because they are more likely Democrats?
) Woods says
Remember this epic rant…. Stop the Hammering? 😂.
The Affidavit from the rookie FBI Agent is no better than the Trump Dossier. Maybe they hired Christopher Steele to write it.
Robert Jones says
Thank god its not getting much coverage over on RTÉ Radio One.
Poor old Ireland is getting swamped with a never ending stream of Ukrainian refugees all wanting to live in Central Dublin.
That’s why it’s called RTE Pravda Roberto. I gave up RTE and The Irish Times years ago. These are no longer news orgs, but propaganda media. Now our best chance of being informed rests on using the Web, with lots of discrimination and skepticism. Eventually we discover credible sites like this one.
It’s an incredible poor judgment on your part jumping on the right wing bandwagon about this. Remember the “whitey tape”? Credibility is hard earned, don’t throw it away.
All the best.
Larry Johnson says
Jumping on the right wing bandwagon? Pointing out the odd discrepancies is not jumping on the bandwagon. How do you explain the broken glass outside the home? If a guy with a hammer comes to your glass door and hits it the glass falls inside, right?
I appreciate your concern about credibility. I was played by Sid Blumenthal on the Whitey Tape. No excuse. Lesson learned.
Excellent reply Larry.
The three signs of a real man are….
1. The truth
2. Ability to admit they have made a genuine mistake.
3. The power to move on and learn, therefore reinforce their strength.
The other alternative is a whiny, snide “A rats arse.”
Both circular and hairy at the same time.
You get that!
Ben Haskell says
In one of the Gateway Pundit photos, it looks to me like glass is also inside.
The broken glass would be both inside and outside the home.
Larry, I think I have the song you were looking for: “I am at home getting hammered while she is out getting nailed” : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_iA-8QK1Yj8&list=RD_iA-8QK1Yj8&start_radio=1&ab_channel=bolimozak
Truer song could not have been sung? Enjoy.
Larry Johnson says
Thanks for the big belly laugh.
I always enjoyed Peter, Paul and Mary.
I would not be surprised if surprised if DePape hangs himself in his cell.
Cato the Uncensored says
Sounds like MK Ultra to me.
Maxwell’s silver hammer — Beatles.
Larry Johnson says
Good one. I forgot about that.
Je suis désolé,mais les histoires de “Cul” des Pelosi
Non rien à faire dans une rubrique tel que la vôtre…
Info niveau Closer nul de nul!!!
Biswapriya Purkayastha says
To be honest I find the whole thing stupefyingly uninteresting and that it is being chattered about so much in the western media leads me to conclude that it is a distraction from more important stuff.
Ben Haskell says
No, I think that this likely has some elements of a false flag operation, if not in the act itself, at least in its exploitation afterwards. The exposure of false flags, or the exposure of post hoc manipulation of real events, is of great importance.
One recent false flag event that may have been forgotten was in the Virginia governors race, where democratic operatives posed in front of the candidate’s bus, carrying torches (a subliminal reference to white supremacists), and within a day or so most or all of them were identified on twitter.
It must be Fredie LOL.
Hammer to fall!
Someone forgot the safe word.
Lookin’ at YOU, PP.
the original sledge hammer
this is the kinda of crazy antics that are straight out of a 80’s tv show.
Lennart Mogren says
Here’s another angle on this according to
Santa Monica Observer
Alex Thrace says
Not much new there except that they referred to Pelosi as notoriously gay.
The recent establishment of the website reminds me of that wonderfully convenient photo of “Lee Harvey Oswald” displaying not only the Mannlicher-Carcano rifle and wearing a sidearm but holding up the magazine from which he mail ordered the superbly accurate, rapid fire 20+yr old bolt action museum piece.
PS I was also going to add the Beatles’ Maxwell’s Silver Hammer but…time zones, too late.
the blame-e says
David DePape, whoever this “guy” is, I don’t believe we need to, or should, delve too far into somebody who may be mentally ill. We should keep a distance. DePape is the stuff that rabbit holes are made of, without the smarts, innate gifts, or genius of a Lewis Carroll to hold it all together.
Is DePape crazy like a fox? I doubt it. DePape is probably casting about for whatever makes him feel better, moment by moment, day by day, hour by hour, ideologue by ideologue. If it’s Black Lives Matter than “That’s IT!” If it’s MAGA then so be it. If it’s an LGBT flag than have at it. Let the freak flags fly.
The world has become an insane asylum kept outdoors.
Don’t get me wrong. Going anywhere near a DePape is like going anywhere near a Donald Trump, or a Paul Pelosi, or a Nancy Pelosi, or a Chuck Schumer, or a Kathy Hochul. We criminalize homelessness as much as we criminalize mental illness. I can be a Trump supporter without suffering from TDS. I didn’t vote for Donald Trump. I voted against Hillary Clinton. The lesser of two weevils.
Whatever passes for pragmatism with this DePape fellow is just another momentary lapse of reason.
How about something heavier for a soundtrack?
The whole thing is a farce. I’m Canadian. And I know the town that DePape comes from — and it aint SF! Nevertheless, beware naked Canucks, who are unfailing polite until they hit you with a hammer. Of course, he let Pelosi use the bathroom and phone whomever. That’s just polite, ey? I wrote about this farce a few days ago, struck by the MSM trying to label him a “right wing” Trump lover. I don’t think he even LIKES Trump.. Ey? He’s not exactly “leftwing” either — at least not what Americans think is ‘left”. He represents a certain kind of Canuck kook. We have lots of them in Vancouver, which BTW has its own nude beaches. I don’ think this has anything much to do with the Democratic Party, or DNP madness, which is of a different kind than what comes out of Powell River, BC. My article written two days ago here.
The article credits Larry with “inspiration” and provides a link to THIS site. Needless to say I am fan. Probably because I am Canuck Kook.
Oh, and if you don’t want to get with a hammer — don’t threaten anyone with one.
Geez, Larry. I would have expected just an honest retraction at this point. The guy may have previously been a nominal “leftist”, but long ago made a sharp U-turn. Even your own further investigations support that, and there *is* no evidence to the contrary. Most of the current post is just further wild speculation.
So when do we see an admission that, insofar as the facts are now known, your previous post on this was incorrect?
The story as usual has a very simple, yet for some, quite a surprising logical explanation:
Lest we forget this classic Jonny Cash tune:
Even “fair and balanced” Fox News isn’t making DePape out to be a “Lefty”:
“Paul Pelosi attacker told investigators he planned to break House Speaker’s ‘kneecaps’: affidavit”
Ben Haskell says
1. “…subsequently populated with material scraped from a Russian site that specializes in QANON material…”
Reference? Website? Screenshots of the Russian site versus “frenlyfrens” or “godisloving”?
2. By the way, some chatter on Truth Social about how DePape’s websites were created just recently with the posts backdated, because the Wayback Machine’s first capture was on October 28. I and others tried to debunk thus notion; capture date doesn’t prove creation date. Of more interest is that “frenlyfrens” was registered on Sept 9 but some posts were earlier, and I did verify this.
3. The frenlyfrens posts were behind a paywall; did the “Media” read the paywalled posts or just the teasers? I could easily imagine that the teasers were pro-MAGA but the posts themselves could have been anti-MAGA.
4. The godisloving posts only had the titles with the posts themselves missing. Maybe the posts never existed. Otherwise, since I only looked at the earliest Wayback capture, maybe subsequent captures drilled down and recovered the full posts.
5. On the archived frenlyfrens site, I found that for an alleged “MAGA conservative”, DePape had a weird obsession/hatred for Jordan Peterson, comparing him to the Marvel Comics villain “Red Skull”. Maybe a Canadian thing?
Alex Thrace says
One of the “tells” the DePape barely warmed the sear cushion in the back of the cop car when all the usual suspects were spouting their pre-primed stories about how this was a right-wing Trump inspired plot.
If this were just a guy hook-up gone wrong it has some minor newsworthness because of who he is.
If this is a democratic or deep-state op that went off the rails then it is a major story.
I’m wondering about the hammer. Who keeps tools like that in the bathroom of a multi-million dollar mansion?
The police clamping the lid on details does not inspire confidence.
Marcos Santos says
Obviously, this is just another case of a highly situated closeted homo or bisexual hiring a male prostitute and having trouble with his impulsive decision.
Now they are just capitalizing a crisis.
Keith Harbaugh says
Two questions stand out to me:
1. Who opened the door?
Per the FBI affidavit:
“… knocked on the front door.
When the door was opened, Pelosi and DEPAPE were both holding a hammer with one hand and DEPAPE had his other hand holding onto Pelosi’s forearm.”
2. How can people as wealthy and prominent as the Pelosi’s not have a home security system which would have recorded the significant aspects of this break-in?
And sounded an appropriate alarm.
This seems impossible to believe.
Even not-so-significant middle class people have such.
Keith Harbaugh says
A detailed description of events, which answers “Who opened the door” (Pelosi) is here:
USA TODAY: Paul Pelosi attack: Violent details emerge of San Francisco assault.
Oblomovka daydream says
Talking about ‘mentally ill’. Today it was revealed how ‘pariah’ (the designation used by Joe Biden in 2019) MBS of Saudi Arabia is taking revenge on the US president. President Biden was lulled into sleep with sweet lies during the summer of 2022 when he visited KSA. He returned home beaming like an illegal alien who is proud of having struck ‘a secret deal’ (: KSA would increase oil production just before the November Mid-Term elections). But instead of increasing the oil flow & lowering the price of gasoline MBS is cutting back on oil production, leaving Biden’s administration without means to react in time. MBS is clearly influencing US elections and has embraced the BRICS+ strategy that is treating the US like a ‘pariah state’.
If this is the angle the Dems and Feds (BIRM) are pursuing in the Paul Pelosi Gotterhammerung skandal, then Ligma/Johnson should be expecting Pre-Dawn Raids and federal charges for misinformation crimes against journos.
And wouldn’t a ball peen hammer be more likely than a claw hammer? Admittedly, I am ignorant of hammer fetish protocols.
MENTALLY ILL, ILLEGAL ALIEN, DRUG ABUSING NUDIST headline is clickbait Larry. I thought this was going to be an article on that stellar Canadian export we sent you many moons ago Neil Young.
Curt Nichols says
As a retired police officer? Some of you all have clearly never had a dispute with a person you paid for sex. Hooker/John disputes are always fun. Especially when the guy/John does not seem to understand he HAS everything to lose. And she/he has nothing to lose. A literal conversation I had. “Why are you arresting me?” You said she stole another $20 from you after you paid her for a BJ. “So?” Deep sigh. Well you told me you paid her for sex. “Huh?” Some heart felt advice. Never take a hooker to your own house. Never have much more money on you than you are willing to pay. Leave credit cards and extra ID at home. If it goes south at all? Just bail out. Pull the ripcord. Run. And street lizards are always trouble. Use an escort with a site that provides feedback. Or safest yet. High speed internet by yourself. This has been a Public Safety Announcement.

Pym of Nantucket says
There are so many excellent quotes from Frank Herbert in Dune, I simply can’t list them all. This kind of deeply planned deception is like a fractal, in that it has countless self similar layers of deception within it. It is effective when its targets become exhausted by the effort required to keep truth alive. We are the targets. We cannot capitulate and allow the torrents of misdirection flush us away.
It had the intended effect. Libtards who only read the headlines are already convinced that this guy was MAGA and no amount of facts will dissuade them.
Bob In Portland says
Lots of Republicans presume he’s just another wacky San Franciscan. If people are using words like “libtards” while Democrats are moving on I suspect the psyop, and that’s what it looks like, to have been directed against Pelosi for the benefit of people who have the word “libtard” in their vocabularies.
The guy *is* MAGA! And where, pray tell are these supposedly dissuading “facts” to which you merely allude? Care to cite some legitimate sources?
All the facts I’ve seen — and posted from multiple news sources already — literally scream “MAGA, MAGA, MAGA!” DePape’s boss makes it clear (see the Daily Mail article below) that he was a soft-spoken, pleasant kind of guy until he went over to the dark side of … you guessed it — MAGA.
I try to stay off social media. But there is a Facebook page I enjoy, Liberty Memes, that is worth a visit. When the admin advises followers to ‘post dank memes,’ there will usually be hundreds of replies, many of them quite creative and hilariously funny.
They’ve been in rare form since the underwear hammer fight. One meme features the Brokeback Mountain protagonists hugging, with Heath brandishing a small pink plastic hammer and asking Jake ‘Where’s Nancy?’
It’s far from clear there was even a break-in. One photo of a broken window I saw looks more like a break-OUT.
This is very obviously not a MAGA event. The media charade will change nobody’s mind: The only people who would believe otherwise are the Dem’s delusional sociopathic base, who don’t need motivating.
The DePape Qanon website stuff is interesting, but it still sounds to me more like a gay liaison unexpectedly gone awry than a DNC false flag.
The Catturd account on Twitter points out that the one thing the media just can’t explain away is the 911 call: ‘His name is David, and he’s a friend.’
Bob In Portland says
Except that there is no evidence that Mr. Pelosi is gay, no evidence that he ever knew him. I suspect that if in fact Pelosi were gay he would have had someone from his circle, not a naked homeless man posting MAGA conspiracy theories.
If you are interested in catching Democrats with their pants down I’d go after Hunter Biden.
Hear, hear! That at least has plenty of evidential substance, whereas the current slurry of mental masturbation about DEPape relies entirely on baseless conjecture!
And I’m still amazingly curious why a purported “lefty” would be seeking to ‘break Nancy Pelosi’s kneecaps’. Frankly, that seems far more reminiscent of a Trump tweet.
John C. Wilson says
I am old and not good at web searches. I have tried. There seem to be a grand total of three extant photos of DePape. Has anyone seen so much as a mugshot? If the man were a well known activist or a neighborhood pest or even a part time working hooker there should be a great deal more.
So there are a lot of planted stories about this guy. The neighbors knew him. They say. There should be abundant police and court records. News stories about the colorful character would be likely. Instead we are shown gossip.
My own grandfather entered this country from Canada with no formalities. That was 1920. He did eventually have legal problems. One hundred years later it defies belief the DePape character walks around as an illegal.
Larry Johnson says
I posted a mash up from XR Vision.
Hello, Mr. Johnson,
Ever wondered if cops lie? I know the answer. I was recruited to be one at the ripe old age of 38, also. I still retain some biases, though.
I assumed, due the amount of charges leveled at the alleged perp, that he would eventually have to plead out “guilty” no matter what the truth.
Juan Valdez says
It’s at once comical and extremely scary to watch the Dems and their MSM mouthpieces try to spin this into some kind of indictment of their “hateful” political opposition.
Fortunately, no one but the true believer buys into it, or indeed gives a crap about it. It will have about as much influence on voters as their “January 6 insurrection!” nonsense.
“Hatred is the most accessible and comprehensive of all the unifying agents. Mass movements can rise and spread without belief in a god, but never without a belief in a devil.”
― Eric Hoffer, The True Believer: Thoughts on the Nature of Mass Movements
“He is an illegal alien”
Already, I have almost no sympathy for the political looting cartel represented by Pelosi.
But open borders advocates attacked by an illegal alien. – That’s just icing on the cake.

Are they going to ban hammers in California? Rumor has it that Democraps are working on passing legislation to limit hammer weight under 6oz.
Jim Giles says
“American troops are now on the ground in Ukraine, where they are monitoring NATO arms deliveries to the country, an anonymous Pentagon official told several US media outlets on Monday. It is unclear how many personnel are involved, or where they are located.”
Does anyone here know who the anonymous Pentagon official is or might be?
Have you considered a forum with user names, breaking news, notification of posts, etc.?
Jim, breaking news sortof stuff exists on Gab already. The comments section here, including yours, is always enlightening… beyond the breaking news.
Jim Giles says
I went to Gab, https://gab.com/news, and I see no reference to American troops on the ground in Ukraine. And the only way I saw your comment was to hit refresh. IOW with a forum there could be a thread for Breaking News and posters could dictate what is truly breaking news and also be notified if someone comments or responds to what they post.
Larry is an expert in an area that is the number one concern of the world now, nuclear war or not.
Jim Giles says
Another good thing about a forum is that it permits a thread on a particular topic to focus attention on that one topic and not be lost. The thread will go to the top if pinned or if someone makes a post to that thread. IOW, lots of Larry’s brilliant analysis is lost in old posts that are not visible at the top. And again, after I read one of Larry’s articles and maybe make a comment or two I don’t go back to that article even if someone responds to my comment because I was not aware of it. A forum intensifies debate and discussion. It also allows readers to locate all the posts of a registered user so as to get a sense of where they are coming from.
Good points. We’ll see what Larry does.
Depape’s jail guards will soon be taking a “Maxwell House” coffee break.
Jimmy Dore is responsible. This DePape character was clearly one his Manchurian Candidates.
Jimmy Dore controls these Candidates from his garage. Although there are no “leftists” in positions of power anywhere in the United States, crazed “leftists” like Jimmy do control everything, inluding your bodily fluids.
Do you know what the best part of being a New Deal Democrat is? In 44 years of being eligable to vote, I never had to go through the hassle of voting, for the simple reason there has never been a legitimate candidate, for any political office, that even remotely came close to representing my incredibly radical political views.
And I have never met anyone to the left of me on the politcal spectrum, and am certain, at this stage of my life, I never will. Ain’t that something?
The tragedy of it is, the New Deal worked. I’ve known this since I was little kid, just listening to the stories of my depression-era elders. And what was WWII, if you remove the war part of it? It was the New Deal on steriods.
Only China learned this lesson unfortunately. That’s what kills me. China borrows – or steals, depending on viewpoint – whatever has worked for states or peoples, at any time period in history, and what they focused on most in their opening up process in the 80s and 90s, is how to replicate America’s New Deal, only with some Chinese characteristics thrown into the mix.
This Chinese addition to mixture means basically, rid your nation-state of the treasonous neo-liberal menace permanently, or else they will return with a vengance and privatize your country right out existence.

“Are you loansome tonight” Elvis Presley
“It wasn’t me,” by Shaggy
“I’m an alien, I’m an illegal alien, I’m a Canadian in San Francisco,” – sort of by Sting.
All things considered. Depape seems a disturbed man, a genuine case for a social worker.
I remember once reading an account of a man whose brother was schizophrenic and he was trying to help him. When his brother had a freakout the cops came and wrested his brother to the ground, he tried to calm his brother and wrote, “when I looked into my brothers eyes I saw hell’.”
These people live in torment. They are in almost constant terror or anxiety or paranoia. Using them.as political pawns as the democrats are is a sickening level of abuse.
But shame and decency died in America long ago in political and media circles.
Meanwhile, federal spooks are probably working feverishly to create substitute “break-in” videos, as it’s said the upscale neighborhood is LOADED with CCTV cameras yet no video has been released. If the guy truly broke in, why was no alarm triggered that would’ve elicited quicker police response? Why did Pelosi have to call for help?
Leftists are saying Pelosi’s 911 call claim that “David” is a “friend” is nothing more than a typical and known code employed to suggest something like a hostage situation, yet the audio of the cop who received the 911 call says nothing of the sort but instead said the caller seemed “confused”.
The SFPD’s very own presser initially said a third person opened the door. Now they’ve retracted that factoid. Bottom line: something’s fishy.
I’ve read comments on other sites saying Pelosi, during his recent DUI incident, had drugs in his system and that there was a passenger in his car, both covered up. I don’t know if it’s true
J Brown says
I’m resurrecting my tin foil hat on this one. How about that this Pelosi thing is timed as a distraction from something else. Is there any other issue that is looming on the horizon that we are not meant to pay attention to? Of course, there is Ukraine, but that’s been going on for some time. Domestically, how about the Konnech trial, which directly impacts US Elections? True the Vote has advised that the information they have regarding Konnech is 1000x times bigger than 2000 Mules. Well, the midterms are right around the corner. And could DePape be an unhinged participant in some kind of government manipulation, MKUltra kind of scenario?
So many questions about his entry into the house, Pelosi’s bathroom trip, or perhaps most importantly, why did DePape only start assaulting Pelosi once the cops arrived?? Interesting stuff.
I agree it could very well be a distraction, but its pretty much impossible to tell what it is intended to distract from. The aftermath is sloppy so that’s a clue it wasn’t properly executed or it was never intended to be so.

Joe Friday says
I’ve been wondering about this: So, the spouse of The Speaker of the House has no dedicated security detail? Maybe they were raiding the icebox at 2am?
Ben Romero says
Pelosi likely has the largest security detail of any lawmaker in Congress. Here’s what we know about her and her husband Paul’s protection.
Warren Rojas Oct 28, 2022, 10:48 AM
…In 2017 late congressional newspaper Roll Call reported that late-GOP Sen. Orrin Hatch, who was then-president pro tempore of the Senate and third-in-line to the presidency, divulged that nearly two dozen armed guards surrounded him and his wife at all times.
“These men and women are like family to me,” Hatch said of those assigned to protect him. Hatch aides added that his 23-person security detail “is the second largest on the Hill following Speaker Ryan.”
Which, extrapolated out, would mean Pelosi’s protective force is likely to be even higher today, particularly since she was personally targeted by MAGA supporters during the January 6 attack.
Staff for then-Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn confirmed in that same Roll Call story that the Texas Republican had a five-person security detail in 2017.

I suspect the press got the intruder’s name wrong, I think it should be ‘DaPepe’.
The decayed state of ‘Liberal’ societies is approaching biblical times past. However, I would think we could reason ourselves out of this without the need for fire & brimstone from on high. Ridicule is a potent tool to use when foolishness is as extreme as, ‘Pass this bill to see what is in it.’
I applaud Larry’s use of song to lambast the nuttiness we see; the Paul P. event being the latest.
The more outrageous part is the political recuperation of the thing, who’s the sicko’s in the PR than though you can gain political sympathy from that kind of events ? More so in the US where sex related sandals are a thing , just ask Lewinsky’s saxophone about it.
Nancy’s husband’s hammer is not the right tool for when you are screwed, it just putted one more nail on the DNC’s electoral coffin.
Since the fall of the soviets, the American school of electoral propaganda is in free-fall : from hero to zero. War on terror was already not very convincing , but the actual inner menace thing is pure laughing matter at this point. The FBI covered “proud boys” , the “slava Ukraine” rioters from January 6th , now Pelosi’s naturist sex friend with a hammer : seen from the other side of the pond , it looks like propaganda stunts made by a six-grader “with special needs” as they says.
Daily Mail (UK), anyone?:
“REVEALED: Paul Pelosi’s attacker planned a SUICIDE mission and had a list of other politicians he wanted to kill – as his former boss says he was completely awash in conspiracies: ‘MAGA, Pizzagate, stolen election – all of it'”
“… Frank Ciccarelli, a San Francisco-based carpenter who builds houses and makes furniture for a living, hired a then homeless DePape off the streets in 2016, saying at the time he looked to be a soft-spoken liberal living the lifestyle of a Bay Area hippie.
“Speaking to The New York Times Tuesday of his former employee: ‘He really believed in the whole MAGA, ‘Pizzagate,’ stolen election thing. …
“He recalled how DePape, at the time, came off as a quiet, likeable, and a steady worker who built decks with him for six years, describing him as politically liberal.
“However, after falling into and out of homelessness, DePape would fall into isolation and darkness, his ex-boss said, spending more and more time online where he trolled forums rife with conspiracy theories and bigotry.
“Ciccarelli described how he laid witness to DePape’s steady descent into right-wing extremism over the years, which he said started when DePape would turn off famously liberal radio news network NPR on morning rides on the way to jobsites.
“‘It was a gradual process – it was over six years,’ Ciccarelli recalled, ‘day by day.’
“Once softspoken and shy, DePape soon began to press forward talking points that Ciccarelli recognized as being commonplace in right wing circles, such as those pertaining to Hillary Clinton’s misuse of her federal email account in the buildup to the 2016 election, as well as the Pizzagate controversy that same year.
“Since debunked, the conspiracy theory falsely claimed that coded messages leaked by WikiLeaks linked several high-ranking Democratic Party officials and U.S. restaurants to an alleged human trafficking and child sex ring.
“DePape was also adamant that there was foul play amid the counting process during the 2020 election, repeatedly claiming the election was illegally stolen from former President Donald Trump by the Democratic Party.
“‘It was the whole thing – Hillary Clinton, Pizzagate, MAGA, the election was stolen – all of it,’ the landscaper said. …”

One guy said to another than the wife of his cousin have a friend who know someone that might know a relative of the girl of a guy who know something about it.
How verified is the story , how many sources ? How corroborating are they ? Are they some other proofs ? Provider browsing history for an example …
I want to believe , to paraphrase a fictional character , just make something actually credible , please…
As the internet says : PICS OR GTFO !
If I’m reading that correctly, what a pathetic response!
Try some countermanding documentation *yourself* sometime. (Pot to kettle: …)
He has a very valid argument indeed : “hearsay are no news” but you didn’t even manage to read that correctly. Ever heard about the Munich declaration of duties and rights of a journalist ?
Plus you don’t even try do help him to document *himself* despite him asking for more pieces of evidences. You were just insulting a guy who might have tried to find more and failed. That’s not very helpful , nor nice , nor convincing.
You blame the guy for a mote he wrote despite the beam you copy/paste, you’re just deserving the narrative you’re trying to push at this point. Maybe it was his goal after all and you just fell for a Troll, an argued one but a Troll anyway 🙂

“When a story breaks always ask why now?”
An excellent question. A week or so before the midterms, an allegedly gay, mentally ill, homeless maybe, attacks the husband of the Speaker of the House.
What a coincidence! Not.
