Bill Nelson Sold His Inauguration Flag To Spite Trump – Now It’s On eBay

Bill Nelson Flag Auction

Florida’s Democrat Senator Bill Nelson, who lost his reelection bid to Rick Scott after a dramatic recount, auctioned off the American flag at a campaign event to spite President Donald Trump, and conservatives are now selling it on eBay.

Nelson received the flag after President Trump’s inauguration in 2017, where the flag was one of 100 flags symbolizing the senate. After the inauguration, these flags were certified and delivered to each senator.

Nelson auctioned his flag at a campaign event “because he doesn’t support the president,” according to the eBay listing. The flag was then purchased by a collector, then by Republican strategist Derek Utley, who held on to the flag until after Nelson conceded his reelection bid on November 19.

After just three days, the bidding for the flag has already passed $3,000. Utley says 20 percent of the auction’s proceeds will be donated to good causes, with 10 percent assigned to the veterans charity Homes For Our Troops, and the other 10 percent donated to Meadow’s Princess Playgrounds, the new project of Andrew Pollack, who tragically lost his daughter in the Parkland school shooting and was criticized by the media for wearing a Trump 2020 t-shirt.

Speaking to Big League Politics, Utley says there has been tremendous interest in the rare flag. There were “49 bids in 14 hours,” said Utley, noting it’s very unusual “for these to come back” as most senators, even from the opposing party, choose to keep their piece of history.

When asked why he waited until after the election, Utley told Big League Politics that he wanted to see what the election would do to the flag’s price. According to Utley, “Senator Bill Nelson’s actions and words were not putting America first.”

While the amount Nelson received for the flag during his auction is unknown, the eBay auction shows no signs of slowing down with nearly 70 bids. The auction is set to conclude on December 2.

Georgia’s Unelected RINO Senator Cashed Out on Stocks After Coronavirus Briefing

Sen. Kelly Loeffler has demonstrated her cronyism.

Published

Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA), who was appointed to her post undemocratically against the wishes of President Donald Trump, has been revealed for selling stock shortly after a private briefing on the coronavirus.

She and her husband sold off a stunning seven figures worth of stock options after the Senate Health Committee held a private meeting with all Senators to brief them about the growing coronavirus epidemic.

“Appreciate today’s briefing from the President’s top health officials on the novel coronavirus outbreak. These men and women are working around the clock to keep our country safe and healthy,” Loeffler wrote in a tweet about the briefing at the time.

Loeffler dumped stocks worth between $50,001 and $100,000 in Resideo Technologies following the hearing. The stock for Resideo has dropped by half since that point, as the Dow Jones has tanked by losing roughly 10,000 points.

She also made a buy of between $100,000 and $250,000 in Citrix, a tech firm specializing in teleworking that has bucked the market during its downturn due to the increased demand for remote networking because of coronavirus.

In subsequent tweets, Loeffler has repeatedly downplayed the threat of coronavirus.

“Democrats have dangerously and intentionally misled the American people on #Coronavirus readiness,” she wrote in a tweet on Feb. 28. “Here’s the truth: @realDonaldTrump & his administration are doing a great job working to keep Americans healthy & safe.”

“Concerned about #coronavirus?” she wrote in a tweet on March 10. “Remember this: The consumer is strong, the economy is strong, & jobs are growing, which puts us in the best economic position to tackle #COVID19 & keep Americans safe.”

Since she wrote those tweets, most of the country has been locked down, Wall Street has cratered, and death tolls have continued to spike.

Loeffler is not the only Senator who seemingly took information about coronavirus to benefit their own finances. Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC), who is chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, had his hand caught in the cookie jar as well. He jettisoned between $500,000 and $1.5 million of stock in February after the meeting.

Burr knew about how potentially deadly the coronavirus could become, but only told his inner circle of well-connected constituents and kept the public in the dark.

“There’s one thing that I can tell you about this: It is much more aggressive in its transmission than anything that we have seen in recent history,” he told the insiders in the uncovered audio. “It is probably more akin to the 1918 pandemic.”

Loeffler was appointed to the U.S. Senate seat last year by Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp against the counsel of President Trump. Trump’s preferred pick for the seat, Rep. Doug Collins, is challenging Loeffler for her Senate position right now. The U.S. Senate election in Georgia will take place in November with multiple Republicans on the ballot.
