Republicans are calling for Pelosi to pay a $5,000 fine she herself imposed for violating a new security measure in the Capitol building.

Fox News reports that Pelosi did not enter through a door with magnetometers, a new measure introduced after the Capitol riots.

Two Republicans, Reps. Gohmert (R-Texas) and Clyde (R-Georgia), were fined $5,000 just one day ago for entering through doors without detectors.

Now that Pelosi failed to do it, there has been no announcement of a fine.

Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Ill) spoke to Fox News about the event.

“She opened the session on the floor, she came through what is known as the Speaker’s lobby,” Davis said. “We are all told, one Republican was fined for doing this just yesterday, that you cannot walk through those entrances unless you are disabled.”

Gohmert received the massive fine when leaving the House floor to use the restroom. The fine rules say the second time a representative is fined, there will be a $10,000 subtraction from their paychecks.

“Typical good for thee, not for me type of attitude that comes out of San Francisco,” Davis said.

Rep. Crenshaw (R-Texas) called Pelosi out on Twitter.

“Now is this a smart rule? No. Is this a rule that makes sense? No of course not. But that’s not the point, the point is they’re her rules. She’s literally confiscated property in the form of money, which we think is unconstitutional, but in any case they’re doing it,” he said.

Crenshaw said Republicans are creating pressure for Pelosi to follow her rules.

“She won’t abide by the rules herself so we’re going to make a huge push for her to actually have to pay that fine,” he said

Chinese Spy Balloon: Tensions rise between the U.S. and China

A strange object was spotted Wednesday over Billings Montana. The Pentagon confirmed Thursday that the strange object was, in fact, a Chinese spy balloon. According to a report from KPAX, a western Montana news outlet, the balloon had been on the governments radar for days.

On Friday, the Chinese government released a statement saying that the balloon spotted in Billings is a “civilian airship” that’s sole purpose is used to collect research on weather and that it had just blown off course. The balloon was not shot down by orders of the Pentagon due to the risk of falling debris injuring people on the ground.

Sara Carter, who has spoken frequently on the Chinese government’s threat and expansion to the West, stated on Twitter that the United States has failed to stop China from purchasing land near military installations, vital agricultural land, as well as, allowing Chinese linked companies, such as Huawei, to install technology in cellular towers. Those cellular towers are located in Montana, along side more than 150 ICBM nuclear silos.

China said, “The Chinese side regrets the unintended entry of the airship into U.S. airspace due to force majeure.” Majeure meaning that it was out of there control. It blew off course due to limited “self-steering” capabilities according the Ministry. The ministry also stated that the balloon, “deviated far from its planned course.”

This incident is adding fuel to the fire of what is already a tense relationship between the worlds two largest economies. China already lays claim to approximately 80% of the South China Sea, and is seeking full control over Taiwan after assuming full control of Hong Kong. China’s belt and road initiative has invested copious amounts of money into building infrastructure in other countries and uses it as economic blackmail. China’s transportation of fentanyl into Mexico is yet again another example of how they are seeking to damage the US.

Is this just a weather ballon that blew off course? US officials at the White House seem to be unconvinced and will continue to monitor the balloon, as reported.

UPDATED: Statement from the Pentagon was jaw dropping when a reporter asked if the public has a right to know about Beijing’s balloon.

“The public certainly has the ability to look up in the sky and see where the balloon is,” a DOD official responded.
