“Like… I just introduced ‘Green New Deal’ two weeks ago and it’s creating all of this conversation. Why? Because no one else has even tried. So, people are like, ‘oh it’s unrealistic, oh it’s vague, oh it doesn’t address this little, minute thing.’ And, I’m like ‘you try! You do it. Cause you’re not. Cause you’re not. So, until you do it, I’m the boss! How about that?’”
Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was caught saying the above statement in one of her many self-recorded live videos last week. It seems the Democrats keep missing the mark when it comes to goal oriented, purpose driven speaking engagements. Especially when it comes to Democrat freshmen.
Product of a Godless Generation?
Some would say that Ocasio-Cortez’s goals are pie in the sky. Others would say that she is a good thing for the Republican Party, like the gift that keeps on giving. Her daily unconscious gaffes are creating that “edgy radical image” for the Democrat Party. But who knows?
I’d say she is a critical case study for sure. Also, I’d say she is the product of a godless generation. This generation raised on the religion of self, void of Judeo-Christian values, is obsessed with social media. They are starving for attention. But what do I know? Then she somehow undeservedly ends up in a political job.
She’s Convinced Herself at Least
Despite not knowing the branches of government that she was elected to serve in, Ocasio-Cortez truly believes she is fully equipped to radically transform the US economy. She really believes she can reshape American society. Her ignorant question regarding the branches of government reveals a lack of necessary knowledge needed to operate in a position of influential power. Whatever your opinions about politics are, make no mistake, you will know who she is.
Unrealistic and controversial policies are the only solutions that Ocasio-Cortez is serving up in The Green New Deal (GND) she co-authored. Thanks to her faulty science claims and impossible suggestions, the Democrat Party is openly fighting about the validity of it. All across social media are the twitter battles raging on between Democrat Congressional Representatives arguing points back and forth. Some are even getting a bit hostile with elementary children.
Comrade Feinstein Rejects GND
California Senator Dianne Feinstein (D) vocally disagreed with a group of small children convinced that climate change is an urgent priority at their school recently. They tried to persuade the Senator to vote in favor of the GND. The Sunrise Movement, an organization dedicated to indoctrinating an army of young people, caught the exchange on video and posted it to their Twitter feed.
Children are seen pleading with Senator Feinstein, saying, “We are trying to ask you to vote yes on the Green New Deal Mrs. Feinstein… please… we heard some scientists have said that we only have 12 years to turn this around.”
Feinstein fires back at the children with, “Well, it’s not going to get turned around in 10 years. What we can do is put ourselves —,” before being cut off. An adult interrupted the Senators lecture by confronting her with, “Senator if this doesn’t get turned around in 10 years, you’re looking at the faces of the people who are going to be living with the consequences.”
Feinstein, in her best dictator voice, quickly responded, “You know what’s interesting about this group is, I’ve been doing this for 30 years. I know what I’m doing. You come in here, and you say it has to be my way or the highway. I don’t respond to that. I’ve gotten elected, I just ran. I was elected by almost a million-vote plurality. And I know what I’m doing. So you know, maybe people should listen up a little bit,” she concluded to the children.
There is too much confusion and division in the Democrat Party today, and it shows. Their solutions are mostly anti-American. Additionally, the Democrat communication style (even to our children) is delivered in a dictatorial and callous manner.
What is happening here? Senator Feinstein, a senior leader of the Democrat Party, expressed frustration on video at elementary school-aged children. It shows just how much chaos Ocasio-Cortez and her freshman comrades are causing. They are wreaking havoc through their lack of knowledge and experience in politics.
No More Baby-Making
Last week, in a live Twitter video, Ocasio-Cortez discussed whether young couples should have children anymore. For the record, Ocasio-Cortez does not have children of her own. Given the statement she made on her video, it doesn’t seem likely to happen. Here’s what she said:
“Ya know, given the devastating consequences facing the earth, unless an unprecedented effort is made to reduce carbon gas emissions by 2030, we should hold off with the procreating for right now.” After the 2030 warning, she predicted the world will end in 12 years. The math this time adds up, at least. Now, moving on.
Democrats Prefer Venezuela Over America
We are witnessing history being made before us with the dissolving of what remains of the Democrat Party. They have evolved into a Marxist-Socialist mob right under our American noses. This didn’t happen overnight. It’s been a long time in the making, and it is going to take some serious effort on our part to correct the direction we were headed.
If Hillary had won the 2016 election, make no mistake, we would be in the second long year of a war we couldn’t have won. The Democrat Party has depleted our military. They are pledging their allegiance to illegal aliens over Americans. And they have tugged at the heart strings of gullible Americans for far too long. Fear not, many are waking up to their farce. With Trump now in office we have made huge strides. We now stand the best chance at a better future for Americans every day.
Paid For By The Pentagon
Ahh, and now back to the cryptic tale called the Green New Deal. Ocasio-Cortez’s other fantasy ideas about it (based on no science ever), I suspect, came from her pre-programmed Marxist thinking. The deal promises free college and healthcare for all, including illegal aliens. When asked by listeners how she planned on funding this proposal, she said she’d like to use unaccounted for Pentagon money.
Now, I am taking a sarcastic stab here, but I don’t think she knows the Pentagon money is actual debt already spent. The thing about socialists is, they have no conscience regarding other people. Another thing is they have an unhealthy obsession with how to spend other people’s money. This is not a win for America.
“Tippy Top” Tax, Only On The Wealthy
Not only does funding for the GND ‘Roosevelt mockup’ come from the already spent Pentagon debt, but a 70% “tippy-top” income tax rate on the super wealthy. As Shadi Hamid of the left-leaning Brookings Institution said, “it probably doesn’t matter whether it is a good idea, or whether it would work. The point is that it’s an insane, envy-driven, economically idiotic idea that loony Cambridge liberals love.”
Americans have every reason to fear the GND. Ocasio-Cortez’s plans mostly involve ignoring the US Constitution and spending missing or other people’s money. We are talking about a proposal calling for an end to air travel entirely across the map. A deal proposing the destruction and demolition, or (if repairable) retrofitting all of the buildings that exist in America. And lest we forget, the demise of all farting cows is most notably her idea of constructive and realistic doable solutions.
Berlin Wall Analogy – What?
Ocasio-Cortez’s view on the border wall, as you can well imagine, is insane. Her thoughts on a border wall designed to protect Americans go like this: “No matter how you feel about the wall, I think it’s a moral abomination. I think it’s like the Berlin Wall. I think it’s like any other wall designed to separate human beings and block out people who are running away from the humanitarian disasters. I just think it’s wrong.”
All of us functioning in reality know that border walls somehow equating to a ‘moral abomination’ spawned from Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. No question there. But, where did the ‘Berlin Wall’ analogy originate? No one cares to know, but what I do know is the response via Twitter Ocasio-Cortez received to her Berlin Wall remark was epic.
The Berlin Wall comparison received an unexpected and intriguing response from evolutionary behavioral scientist, Professor Gad Saad from the John Molson School of Business.
I, as a Journalist and educator, appreciate greatly that Prof. Saad took time to reply online so that her followers would receive accurate history. At least they were told the real intention behind the Berlin Wall. It is too often that our educational institutions, meant to actually educate, quite frankly do the exact opposite.
The American people will no doubt reject radicalism. It goes against the very nature of who we are as Americans. Even Speaker Pelosi has sought to distance herself from the Ocasio-Cortes drama. Who’s next? Let’s see.
Razor Sharp BS Detector
According to the Federal Election Commission (FEC), a complaint was filed on Monday against Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti. It seems campaign finance laws were violated by two political action committees that were founded by him. He funneled over $1 million in political donations into two of his own private companies. OOPS.
Occasio-Cortez recently pledged to the voters in her NY district an increase in transparency, and to reduce the influence of “dark money” in politics. This FEC violations complaint seems to run in direct opposition to the freshman’s promises. It appears Chakrabarti’s set up companies strategically and with the sole intention of hiding how the political donations were used.
The National Legal and Policy Center, a government watchdog group, said in its complaints that by skirting reporting requirements, they may have violated the $5,000 limit on contributions from federal PACs to candidates. Campaign finance attorneys described the arrangement as “really weird, and something is definitely amiss.”
More Missing Funds
The political donations could have been pocketed. Funds also could have been used by the company to pay for off-the-books campaign operations. They could have used it for literally anything. The indication is that there is no way to tell where the funds went, hence the FEC complaint.
All PACs are required to explain where and how they spend campaign contribution money. The list includes expenditures for advertisements, donations to candidates, fundraising emails, and payments made to vendors and for events. Perhaps her “razor-sharp BS detector” is not so sharp after all?
Millennial Lenin & Muslim Comrade
Just another day in the life of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as she speaks up on a recent entanglement involving another frightening freshman. Known anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar (Minnesota) stands off in a recent militant refusal to apologize for her anti-Semitism. Reports Politico: “Speaker Nancy Pelosi and top Democrats are confronting a new controversy involving freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar, who has defied her colleagues’ calls to apologize for recent comments viewed as anti-Semitic.”
Public scrutiny over the Muslim Minnesota Democrat intensified over the weekend as two of the House’s most senior Democrats condemned Rep. Omar’s remarks accusing pro-Israel advocates of “allegiance to a foreign country.” And the problem threatens to get worse for Democratic leaders, with Omar refusing other lawmakers’ pleas to retract her statements.
Militant Refusal of Accountability
As reported in the Washington Times: On Sunday, House Appropriations Chairwoman Nita Lowey called out Omar’s use of “offensive, painful stereotypes.” This lead to an awkward Twitter clash as Omar dug in on her comments and was cheered by some on the left. “Our democracy is built on debate, Congresswoman!” Omar wrote, later adding, “I have not mischaracterized our relationship with Israel, I have questioned it and that has been clear from my end.”
Members of the Democrat caucus spent the weekend privately debating how to handle the ill-prepared freshman’s latest controversy involving those accusations of anti-Semitism. Just three weeks earlier, Pelosi and her top lieutenants issued a rare public rebuke of Omar’s previous remarks that suggested pro-Israel groups were using their financial heft to shape U.S.-Middle East policy. The clean up after freshman Democrats is becoming quite consuming for senior leaders.
Omar’s Latest Slur According to ADL
According to the Hill, the backlash continued on Monday, as the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) wrote a letter to Speaker Pelosi calling for a House resolution to specifically reject what the organization calls Omar’s “latest slur.” The fact that any Congressional member has been able to continue this type of behavior repeatedly shows just how disheveled the Democrat resistance Party has become. How long will they tolerate this hateful behavior?
“We urge you and your colleagues to send the unambiguous message that the United States Congress is no place for hate,” wrote ADL CEO, Jonathan Greenblatt. Nearly a dozen pro-Israel groups also urged Pelosi to oust Omar from her coveted spot on the House Foreign Relations Committee. Chairman Rep. Eliot Engel, who is Jewish, said Omar was guilty of a “vile anti-Semitic slur,” but did not call for her to be removed from the committee.”
Comrade Ocasio-Cortez continues to defend Rep. Ilhan Omar in an on going string of twitter posts and in person when asked her stance on the matter. Meanwhile, a petition to remove Rep. Ilhan Omar from the House Foreign Affairs Committee is circulating.
Disapproval Not Enough to Make Them Change Their Ways
Disapproval comes from several senior Democrat House leaders, Sen. Feinstein, Speaker Pelosi, organizations, Professors, and more on their anti-semitism issues, ethical behavior, transparency, and the Green New Deal proposal. However, the House Freshman class stance on apologizing for insults are still in the militant refusal stage. Hopefully, the Democrats are headed down a rough road for 2020.
