Ocasio-Cortez demands taxpayer dollars to ‘deradicalize’ white supremacists: ‘Their world will never exist’


Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) says that taxpayer funds should be used to “deradicalize” white supremacists. Speaking with supporters during a virtual town hall Friday night, Ocasio-Cortez blamed recent violence — including the deadly riots at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 — on white supremacy.

“The white supremacist cause is futile, it’s nihilist — it will never be realized,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “The path forward for all of us is a multiracial democracy that fights for the economic and civil rights of every American.”

She added of white supremacists, “Their world will never exist. That’s why we’re seeing violence right now.”

Ocasio-Cortez was speaking in response to a question about how Americans should respond to those who believe in conspiracy theories, but were not part of the violence at the Capitol. Ocasio-Cortez warned that “this is a problem that doesn’t go away on Jan. 20,” and said it will require “many, many, many millions of hands” to help “pick up the pieces.”

Ocasio-Cortez explained that, during her time on the House Subcommittee on Civil Rights and Civil Liberties, she has learned about programs that “deradicalize” white supremacists. Ocasio-Cortez blamed President Donald Trump for “pulling the plug” on funding for such programs. But if America wants to adequately address the problem of white supremacy, Ocasio-Cortez said taxpayer funding for “deradicalization” programs should be significantly increased.

“We need to double, triple or quadruple, or increase funding for these deradicalization programs en masse,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

Just last week, Ocasio-Cortez suggested that all of Trump’s supporters, and perhaps the entire Republican Party, is guilty of white supremacy.

“I don’t want to hear or see the Republican Party talk about blue lives ever again. This was never about safety for them, it was always a slogan because if they actually cared about rule of law they would speak up when people break the law,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “They would speak up. They would enforce fairness and equity, but they don’t give a damn about the law. They don’t give a damn about order. They don’t give a damn about safety.”

“They give a damn about white supremacy, they care about preserving the social order and the mythology of whiteness,” she added. “They lust for power more than they care about democracy.”

New Yorkers, Stung By Amazon Loss Amid Pandemic, Rip AOC: Do ‘Something Positive’ With Your ‘Big Mouth’


Reported By  Ryan Saavedra |  | DailyWire.com

NEW YORK, UNITED STATES – JANUARY 05 2020: US Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez attends the No hate no fear solidarity march. As anti-Semitic incidents have increased in New York City as well as the United States, demonstrators held no hate no fear solidarity march.

Business owners in Queens, New York, are reportedly furious at Democrats and especially Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), after they chased Amazon out of the city, which is now struggling amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“Almost two years after Amazon pulled out from a proposal to build a massive headquarters along the Queens waterfront, the site is a vacant eyesore — and, to many locals, the squandered economic opportunity is even more painful amid the coronavirus pandemic,” the New York Post noted. “The world’s largest e-tailer abruptly canceled its projected 25,000 job-producing campus in February 2019 after being taken aback by ferocious opposition from local pols — including Democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and state Sen. Mike Gianaris.”

The Post called the vacant site “the scar that won’t heal.”

The following individuals spoke to The Post about the situation:

  • Eric Benaim, CEO of Modern Spaces realty: “It’s really crazy what’s going on. The city has no solutions. We have a do-nothing mayor. I’m watching AOC selling ‘Tax the rich’ T-shirts for $58 while businesses are leaving New York. That’s AOC’s solution. Who is going to pay $58 for a T-shirt when you’re out of a job?”
  • Donna Drimer, owner of the Matted LIC art gallery and gift store: “The site just sits there empty. It’s terrible. We’re in the middle of a pandemic. People say, ‘If we only had Amazon.’ We got nothing. AOC, Giannaris, [local Councilman Jimmy] Van Bramer — wake up! People are leaving. Businesses are closing.”
  • Gianna Cerbone, owner of Manducatis Rustica restaurant: “I’m angry at the stupidity. Everybody fears AOC, who has no idea what she’s doing. Opposing Amazon benefited other communities. Imagine if AOC did something positive with her big mouth. I believed in Gianaris. Mike believed in the community until he went so far up AOC’s ass she couldn’t s–t him out.”
  • Bishop Mitchell Taylor, pastor of the Center of Hope International Church: “It’s like we’re living in the 1970s. Things are worse for poor people now. The Amazon project provided a ray of hope to a lot of people. We didn’t want a handout. The largest public housing project in the country wanted the opportunity to do business with the largest retailer in the country.”

“Governor Cuomo, who with Mayor de Blasio helped negotiate the deal largely in private, blamed the State Senate, where crucial leaders opposed the plan,” The New York Times reported. “Ocasio-Cortez, who opposed the campus, blamed Amazon for seeking $3 billion in tax breaks and incentives that she said should have been spent elsewhere.”

The Times highlighted a Sienna College Research Institute survey that showed that New Yorkers pinned more blame on Ocasio-Cortez for ruining the deal than anyone else.

Democrat New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo launched efforts behind the scenes to try to bring Amazon back.

Ocasio-Cortez cheered sabotaging the Amazon deal, calling it “incredible,” claiming that the city was “subsidizing” the tens of thousands of jobs that the deal was going to bring to the area.

However, as Democrat New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio explained, “that $3 billion that would go back in tax incentives was only after we were getting the jobs and getting the revenue.”

 

Earlier this year, as the coronavirus pandemic began to devastate the U.S. economy, Ocasio-Cortez appeared to cheer job losses in the oil industry. Ocasio-Cortez tweeted: “You absolutely love to see it. This along with record low interest rates means it’s the right time for a worker-led, mass investment in green infrastructure to save our planet. *cough*”

Ocasio-Cortez wrote her statement while promoting a tweet that stated: “Oil prices now at ‘negative values,’ meaning oil producers have to pay people to take it off their hands and store it because when demand plunges (like now), that is less expensive for them than building more storage and/or shutting wells down.”

The Houston Chronicle had reported at the time about the thousands of jobs that were being lost in the oil and gas industry. AOC later deleted her tweet.

Progressives, including ‘Squad,’ release agenda to push Biden to the left


Reported By Marisa Schultz | Fox News

One of the plan’s backers, Rep. Ro Khanna, D-Calif., said the agenda will be the legislative blueprint for what progressives in the House will push during a Biden-Harris Administration.

“The aim is a clear agenda that progressives in the House will advance focuses on these big items,” Khanna told Fox News. “We will push for Medicare-for-all during the pandemic. We will push for the creation of millions of good jobs in communities left behind. And we will advance a bold vision to tackle climate change and have a liveable planet, which is the aspiration of the Green New Deal. I expect at least 80 to 100 House Democrats will support the basic principles and agenda.”

The release of the ambitious liberal policy agenda comes in the shadow of the vice presidential debate where Sen. Kamala Harris, seen by the left as a lifeline into a Biden Administration, distanced herself from progressive priorities — including the Green New Deal, which she once co-sponsored.

Progressives had accepted the fact that neither of their preferred candidates won the election — Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass. — and Biden was a more moderate choice. But some saw the choice of Harris, who represents the future of the party, as an olive branch to the left.

But her willingness Wednesday in the debate against Vice President Mike Pence to abandon her past positions — including pledging fracking would not be banned — came as a disappointment to some on the left. Even Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who supported Sanders but has since backed Biden, took to Twitter to respond: “Fracking is bad, actually.”

The progressives acknowledge Biden wasn’t their top choice, but they make the case he’s far better than President Trump and they have a better shot of mobilizing pressure on him to adopt their agenda if he wins office. The People’s Charter is the vehicle to organize for the election, to activate the base and hold Biden accountable if he wins, organizers say,

“We’ve always said that electing Joe Biden was a doorway, not a destination,” said Working Families Party National Director Maurice Mitchell in a statement. “The People’s Charter is that destination: a nation that cares for all of us, no matter what we look like, where we come from, or how much money is in our pockets.

“We’re going to beat Donald Trump on Nov. 3, and then we’re going to organize to make the vision outlined in the People’s Charter a reality,” he added.

The agenda was borne out of the coronavirus pandemic as the Working Families Party set out to define a vision for COVID-19 relief while plotting a path for an economic recovery. The plan calls for canceling rent and banning foreclosures during the pandemic, retroactive hazard pay for essential workers, delaying school openings and extending $600 federal unemployment benefits.

The aspirational agenda also includes taking on systemic racism, eliminating housing and zoning rules that enable segregation, putting 16 million to work, taxing billionaires and large corporations. The activists want investment to fight climate change, giving the public ownership stakes in all corporations receiving bailouts and public buyouts of oil and gas companies to take on climate change.

“Not only do we think this document speaks to the moral crisis we’re in … we also think it’s really good policy,” Mitchell told Fox News. “And it’s popular. This is what people actually want.”

After Biden is elected, the progressives hope to generate a groundswell of support for the agenda to force movement by Biden to back the large-scale agenda.

“Just electing Joe Biden won’t make any of this happen … The destination is this work and that requires us to advocate and organize. We’re going to be pushing on Democrats. We’re going to be challenging, both Democrats and Republicans and independents to do the work of the people,” Mitchell said.

A number of local and federal lawmakers have signed on, including the four members of the freshman squad: Ocasio-Cortez, Reps. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts.

Progressive groups joining the cause include The Movement for Black Lives, the SEIU union, MoveOn, United We Dream and the Sunrise Movement, a climate activist group.

“The vision laid out in the People’s Charter is exactly why we’re going to beat Donald Trump in November,” Omar said in a statement. “Organizing people around the promise of something better – that’s how we’ll win. And when we do, we’ll be ready to fulfill that promise.”

The People’s Charter will be formally unveiled at an 8 pm event.

AOC: ‘Profoundly Exciting’ that People Are ‘Discovering Their Own Power’ and Taking It ‘in the Streets’

Jacqueline Woodson, who penned the portfolio’s essay, said she wants to “look into the face of a country built on the bodies of Black folks as more than 400 years of rage and a balance long overdue bites it on its ass, paints a yellow brick road into Black Lives Matter plazas, topples its long-held beliefs, monuments, and Confederate flags.”

When asked, “How does this moment feel different and why,” Ocasio-Cortez told the magazine that “people are really discovering their own power in a broader sense that we have not seen in a very long time” and mentioned the actions “in the street.”

“So, yes, we’re starting to see some of this emerging power at the ballot box and at the polls, but we’re also starting to see it in the streets, and people standing up for themselves in the workplace, in organizing themselves and their labor,” she said, calling it “profoundly exciting.”

“And it’s really incredible to see how people are really taking the reins for themselves in the direction of systemic change,” she continued.

Despite painting a rosy picture of peaceful social justice activists taking their calls for change to the streets, Ocasio-Cortez did not condemn the lawless activities that have dominated several of the protests nationwide in the interview. Portland, for instance, has experienced 88 nights of destruction as protesters continue to attack federal buildings and police officers. Police declared yet another riot downtown on Sunday night. According to the Portland Police Bureau, rioters lit two North Precinct awnings on fire and targeted officers with rocks, mortars, lasers, and “sharp chunks of ceramic.” Twenty-three people were arrested.

That same night, unrest erupted in Kenosha, Wisconsin, following a officer-involved shooting of a black man. Officials are asking the public to withhold judgment until the Wisconsin Department of Justice, Division of Criminal Investigation completes its investigation of the incident.

“Until that investigation is completed, we ask that you withhold prejudgment about the incident and please the let process take place,” Pete Deates, president of the Kenosha Professional Police Association, said in a statement following the night of civil unrest.

 Ocasio-Cortez also told the magazine that “all these people in the streets that are educating others, that are engaging in this elevated and amplified way” have “really emboldened ” her.
“It’s given me a lot of courage and encouragement to try to match the energy of everyone else right now who’s really fighting for progressive change,” she added.

EXPOSED: Details Of Ocasio-Cortez’s Ties To George Soros Revealed


Reported By Kyle Pirisic at The Daily Caller News Foundation (DCNF) FLASHBACK From RWT

New details have emerged revealing that George Soros helped prop-up democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s political career in an attempt to put 400 Bernie Sanders-like politicians in Congress. A former organizer for Bernie Sanders’s presidential campaign, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s under-dog win in the democratic primary was undoubtedly helped by far-left organizations linked George Soros — specifically, online media which played a crucial role in her campaign.

Members linked to Soros-funded digital media asked Ocasio-Cortez to run for office which guaranteed she would get favorable coverage by a media network that reaches almost 300 million people monthly.

One member of the Soros-funded media, Cenk Uygur, also founded one of the two political groups responsible for asking Ocasio-Cortez to run, Justice Democrats — whose goal is to get Sanders-like politicians elected to Congress. Uygur, a former Armenian genocide denier, was eventually forced out of the organization after old articles revealed some of his previous sexist comments, often referring to women in a derogatory way.

Incumbent Joseph Crowley — whose footprint in the Democratic establishment led to speculation that he would succeed Nancy Pelosi as Democratic leader of the House — greatly outspent Ocasio-Cortez.

However, her strong online presence — thanks to the coverage of the Soros-linked digital media — she was able to gain traction and defeat Crowley in the primary June 26. She is won New York’s 14th congressional district handedly, given the district’s Democratic history.

After Ocasio-Cortez’s website, Ocasio2018.com, was first registered May 3, 2017, it redirected to Ocasio-Cortez’s now-deleted page on BrandNewCongress.Org, according to an Internet archive captured June 29, 2017. Brand New Congress is another organization, just like Justice Democrats, that aimed to get socialists elected to Congress in the 2018 mid-terms. It has close ties to Justice Democrats.

In a June 27 interview with Uygur on his YouTube channel “The Young Turks,” Ocasio-Cortez thanked Uygur and other media platforms for covering her before the primaries, which she says “in no small part” helped her win.

“I wouldn’t be running if it wasn’t for the support of Justice Democrats and Brand New Congress,” Ocasio-Cortez told Uygur. “In fact it was, it was JD (Justice Democrats) and it was Brand New Congress that asked me to run in the first place.”

The Young Turks is a member of The Media Consortium — a network of far left media publications which includes Mother Jones, Democracy Now!, and dozens of other outlets, funded by Soros. The Media Consortium is a Soros a media empire that, according to Media Research Center (MRC), reaches nearly 300 million people a month.

“Soros funds nearly every major left-wing media source in the United States,” MRC stated. “Forty-five of those are financed through his support of the Media Consortium. That organization ‘is a network of the country’s leading, progressive, independent media outlets.’ The list is predictable – everything from Alternet to the Young Turks.”

The MRC report goes on to detail the progressive echo chamber Soros intentionally created with the Media Consortium with the intention of shaping public opinion.

Kayleigh McEnany, WH Slap Down AOC’s ‘Racist’ Attack on Press Secretary


Reported By Joe Saunders | Published June 9, 2020 at 8:28am

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez thinks White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany doesn’t read the newspapers. Maybe AOC should try reading what McEnany actually says before she launches an attack that basically accuses the press secretary of racism — even subconscious racism.

In a social media dispute that flared up Monday, New York’s best-known democratic socialist tried to paint the Harvard Law graduate McEnany as too ignorant to know the office Ocasio-Cortez holds, apparently thanks to a Politico summary of McEnany’s comments during a White House news briefing.

“@PressSec wouldn’t be the first person to mistake a women of color for having a lower position or title than she does, but Kayleigh – in case you haven’t picked up a newspaper in two years, I’m a Congresswoman,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote.

“The@PressSec comment is steeped in a long, hurtful, & horrendous history of stripping women of color of titles and diminishing them to ‘the help.’ Perhaps she isn’t aware that what she did is mired in racist history. If that is the case, I look forward to her apology tomorrow.”

First of all, since it’s unlikely McEnany has been living under a rock since the 2018 election season, it’s a good chance she knew full well who the Bronx-Queens Democrat is even before becoming White House press secretary.

Second, Ocasio-Cortez appeared to be triggered by Politico reporter Jake Sherman’s suspiciously snarky Twitter post that implied McEnany had referred to AOC as simply an “adviser” to Joe Biden, the elderly, white male who’s somehow become the Democrats’ presumptive presidential nominee for 2020.

Also, since McEnany was referring to Ocasio-Cortez’s status as co-chairwoman of a panel advising Biden on “climate change,” there’s an argument to be made that McEnany was complimenting AOC by elevating her beyond the ranks of an ordinary member of Congress to a powerful player in presidential politics.

Finally, as Alyssa Farah, White House director of strategic communications noted, Ocasio-Cortez was just dead wrong.

Had the congresswoman taken more than a minute to look, and resisted the urge to leap immediately at Sherman’s cc’ed Twitter bait, she would have known McEnany had fully described her, as well as AOC’s equally obnoxious “squad” mate Rep. Rashida Tlaib, the Democratic congresswoman from Michigan.

The two women came up when McEnany was fielding a question about the Democrats’ insane push to defund American police departments.

At a Friday night debate, according to the U.K. Independent, Ocasio-Cortez called for the “reduction of our NYPD budget and defunding a $6 billion budget, that costs us books in the hands of our children and costs us very badly needed investment in NYCHA and public housing.”

Tlaib has also posted support for defunding police.

And that’s what McEnany was talking about when she brought up the congresswomen — including their titles.

She didn’t take long in responding to the Ocasio-Cortez tweet. And it’s safe to say the response wasn’t the “apology” AOC was looking for.

“Read the transcript, Congresswoman,” McEnany wrote in a Twitter post.

19.5K people are talking about this


“The president is appalled by the ‘defund the police’ movement,” McEnany said, according to the transcript.

“The fact that you have sitting congresswomen wanting to defund the police — notably Rashida Tlaib, notably Biden adviser Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — former Clinton and Eric Holder spokesperson Brian Fallon wanting to defund our police across this country, it is extraordinary.”

In other words, Ocasio-Cortez fired off Monday apparently on the basis of a reporter’s tweet that seemed designed to get a rise out of her, and she jumped right at it. That’s not exactly the behavior voters should expect of their elected officials, but it’s the kind of action Americans have learned to expect from Democrats and “progressives” who have spent the Trump years demonstrating the maturity of middle schoolers.

As is usual with anything coming out of the Trump White House, McEnany’s tweet drew plenty of liberal responses as AOC’s supporters flocked to the congresswoman’s defense like the flying monkeys of “The Wizard of Oz” — but McEnany had plenty of backers, too.

When AOC tweets, first she types “woman of color” and then she adds words in front and back to make it a complete sentence.

She can’t say anything without bringing up that she’s a woman of color! 🤡

Identity politics is cancer!

I’ll go slow, try to keep up…she said sitting congressWOMEN (meaning multiple), then gives examples of those congressWOMEN, the second of which, AOC, is ALSO an advisor to Biden. AOC has TWO JOBS, congresswoman AND Biden advisor, BOTH mentioned. Got it?

The Bradley Files@bradley_files

If nothing else, it has become clear that if you cross this press secretary, you’re going to get put in your place very quickly. Good!

And that last one is key.

Following the example of former press secretary Sarah Sanders, whose tenure was a textbook example of how the White House should handle an unrelentingly hostile press corps, McEnany has made it clear from the beginning that she wasn’t going to be intimidated by the divas in the briefing room.

Even the most vainly obtuse (say, Jim Acosta?) should be learning by now that attacking McEnany without a decent cause is going to be an exercise in failure.

Maybe Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will learn the lesson too — assuming she reads enough about it.

DHS Facility Attacked With Molotov Cocktail In Florida

A woman was arrested on Friday for allegedly attacking a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) facility in Florida with a Molotov cocktail, which authorities say was intended to harm people.

“The woman walked into the office Friday afternoon and hurled a bottle filled with gasoline and a lit fuse,” Local 10 News reported. “But the fuse disconnected and didn’t ignite … Security officers handcuffed her, and she was taken into custody. The report did not list her name.”

The attack happened at a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) office about 30 miles north of Miami.

“Today’s attempted attack on one of our USCIS facilities using a Molotov cocktail is another example of the use of violence in place of debate by those who oppose the proper application of our immigration laws,” USCIS Acting Director Ken Cuccinelli wrote in a statement. “This is the 2d attack on a DHS facility in 2 months using a Molotov cocktail. Violence has no place in our society. Thankfully, no one was hurt today. We’re grateful to our security guards & the law enforcement officers of FPS who apprehended and arrested the assailant.”

Acts of aggression against immigration authorities have increased in recent months as Democrats and the media have increasingly demonized them as part of their attacks on the Trump administration.

“About two weeks ago in San Antonio, at least one vehicle pulled up to a building that houses offices for ICE and a gunman fired shots through a window, FBI officials said,” Fox News reported. “Another building used by ICE was also fired on.”

In July, a self-described member of the far-left extremist group Antifa attacked an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) building in Tacoma, Washington, as he fired a rifle at the facility, lit vehicles on fire, and attempted to detonate a propane tank that he reportedly hoped would burn the facility down.

The suspect echoed rhetoric from socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) in his manifesto, falsely claiming that immigrant detention facilities were “concentration camps.”

Ocasio-Cortez’s Known Donors From Her Own District Are Nearly Non-Existent, FEC Records Show


Reported by Andrew Kerr Investigative Reporter |

  • Only 10 people who live within Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s congressional district have been recorded making donations to her reelection campaign in 2019, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation analysis of available Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings.
  • Ocasio-Cortez outraised all other 87 freshmen representatives in the first half of 2019 in individual contributions, but the New York Democrat came in second-to-last place in terms of reported itemized contributions from the people she represents.
  • Democratic Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan also rank among the lowest-performing freshman representatives in terms of reported financial support from people who live within their districts.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has outraised all other freshmen representatives so far in 2019, but nearly all of her reported contributors to her reelection campaign live outside her congressional district, a Daily Caller News Foundation analysis of Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings found.

Ocasio-Cortez’s reelection campaign has reported receiving contributions from just 10 individuals living within her district in the first half of 2019, according to its Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings. The FEC only requires that political campaigns disclose the names and addresses of individuals who contribute over $200 to their campaigns during an election. Campaigns report their big-dollar donors to the FEC in what’s called itemized contributions.

The $1,525.50 Ocasio-Cortez received from her New York constituents represents less than 1% of her campaign’s itemized contributions reported to the FEC in the first half of 2019. The known monetary support Ocasio-Cortez’s reelection campaign has received from the people she represents is minuscule compared to the 88-member freshman class of the House of Representatives.

The average freshman representative’s reelection campaign received $107,141.29 in itemized contributions from their constituents in the first half of 2019, FEC filings the DCNF analyzed show. Ocasio-Cortez’s reported in-district fundraising haul of $1,525.50 was just 1.4% of that average.

The Ocasio-Cortez campaign didn’t respond to multiple requests for comment seeking additional information regarding how many of her un-itemized contributions came from her constituents.

However, Ocasio-Cortez holds a significant lead over the freshman class in the amount of small-dollar contributions she’s received. Just 17% of Ocasio-Cortez’s individual contributions were from big-dollar donors who gave over $200 to her campaign in the first half of 2019. The median freshman representative received nearly 89% of their individual contributions from big-dollar donors.

Each representative is answerable to a congressional district comprised of between 530,000 to 995,000 people, according to the U.S. Census. The DCNF determined which of Ocasio-Cortez’s donors came from her congressional district by comparing the nine-digit zip codes her contributors reported to the FEC to the House of Representatives ZipLook tool, which links nine-digit zip codes to congressional districts.

Only one freshman representative reported receiving less from their constituents than Ocasio-Cortez: Democratic Rep. Sylvia Garcia of Texas. Garcia’s reelection campaign reported itemized contributions of $14,400, all of which came from individuals with addresses outside her district.

Ocasio-Cortez’s apparent lackluster fundraising performance from her constituents lends credibility to a poll conducted by a conservative PAC in May. It found that only 20% of households in the representative’s district held a favorable opinion of her. (RELATED: Ocasio-Cortez Could Have An Amazon-Sized Problem In Her Home District)

The data also reveal that two of Ocasio-Cortez’s colleagues in the so-called “Squad” of freshman Democratic congresswomen — Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan — also rank among the lowest-performing freshman representatives in terms of reported financial support from people who live within their districts.

And while Omar reported $717,831.22 in itemized contributions to her reelection campaign so far in 2019, just over 4% came from her constituents.

A fourth squad member, Rep. Ayanna Pressley, far outperformed the others. The Massachusetts Democrat received more than 30% of her $248,280.78 itemized contributions from her constituents.

Freshman Republicans dominated freshman Democrats in receiving a greater share of their reported contributions from the people they represent.

Of the 10 freshman representatives who received the lowest percent of their itemized contributions from their constituents, eight are Democrats. On the other end, seven of the 10 top-performing freshman representatives in this category are Republicans.

Leading the freshman class in receiving the greatest share of itemized contributions from their constituents was Republican Rep. Dusty Johnson. Over 94% of Johnson’s itemized contributions of $129,250 came from people living within his district.

An Economist and YouGov survey in July found that Americans have a very unfavorable view of the “Squad.” Just 33% of Americans have a favorable view of Ocasio-Cortez, followed by Omar with a 25% combined favorability rating, Tlaib with 24%, and Rep. Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts with 22%.

Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY, Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich, Ilhan Omar, D-Minn, and Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass, often referred to as “The Squad,” sat down with “CBS This Morning” host Gayle King on Tuesday as the House voted to formally condemn Trump over tweets that Democrats labeled as racist.

King asked the congresswomen if they’ve been in contact with Pelosi.

“Our teams are in communication,” Ocasio-Cortez responded.

“But shouldn’t you be meeting face-to-face?” King asked.

“She’s the new member, not the speaker,” Tlaib interjected. “She has every right to sit down with her at any moment, any time with any of us. She is Speaker of the House. She can ask for a meeting to sit down with us for clarification.”

Tlaib continued, “Acknowledge the fact that we are women of color, so when you do single us out, be aware of that and what you’re doing, especially because some of us are getting death threats, because some of us are being singled out because of our backgrounds, because of our experiences and so forth.”

King followed up with Ocasio-Cortez, asking if she was “interested in having a conversation with Pelosi, which Ocasio-Cortez responded, “Absolutely.”

Last week, the four congresswomen had an ongoing public spat with Pelosi, which got very heated after Ocasio-Cortez suggested that the speaker was “singling out” them because they were “women of color.” Pelosi previously dismissed their vocal opposition to the House’s approval for border funding.

Their feud, however, seemed to have evaporated on Sunday after Trump targeted them on Twitter, suggesting they should “go back” to the countries they came from despite how three of the four congresswomen were born in the U.S. and all four of them are U.S. citizens.

Trump’s tweets were formally condemned by the House, resulting in a 240-187 vote. Four Republican lawmakers joined the Democrats, including Reps Will Hurd, R-Texas, Brian Fitzpatrick, R-Penn., Fred Upton, R-Mich., and Susan Brooks, R-Ind., as well as Rep. Justin Amash, I-Mich.

Selective Outrage from Democrats Ignores Reality of Obama-Era Migrant Detentions

2019 vs 2014 Migrant Detention

The current selective outrage from Democrats today stands in sharp contrast to the deplorable conditions migrants faced in detention facilities during the Obama administration in 2014. The commentary from certain Democrats appears to be more politically motivated than directed at improving conditions for migrants in detention.

In June 2014, Breitbart News Director of Border and Cartel Chronicles Projects Brandon Darby shocked the world with the publication of leaked photos showing the deplorable conditions faced by unaccompanied migrant children and family units. Democrat responses at that time appeared to be more angered that migrants were being detained at all than by the horrible conditions forced upon the migrants by Obama administration policies.

Dozens of photographs published by Breitbart News at that time show migrants packed into small holding cells, often shoulder-to-shoulder. Many of the photos show filthy conditions and some reveal portable toilet units. Other’s show people sleeping on the floor in cold conditions without blankets.

Contrast these with the single photo tweeted by U.S. Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX) this week that shows clean conditions and women with blankets. It is worth noting that Castro’s brother, Julián Castro, is a candidate for the Democratic Party’s nomination for president — seeking to pair off against President Donald Trump in November 2020. Julián Castro has been conspicuously silent on the recent discussion of migrant detention facilities.

When Rep. Castro visited an Obama-era facility in 2015, his concern seemed more focused on ending the detention of migrants altogether rather than improving conditions for the detained illegal border crossers. A report from the San Antonio Current at the time said Castro called it a “very emotional visit.” He reportedly said the migrants should qualify for asylum.

Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) took it a step further. “What I saw today did nothing but confirm my belief walking through the door that we should end the jailing of women and children in these proceedings. It is by its nature punitive, whether it is intended to be or not,” she said.

More than 130 Democrats in Congress signed a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson asking him to end the use of family detention facilities, the report stated.

“They are in a locked facility that feels quite a bit like a jail. I would say it is a jail camp,” Lofgren said after touring another facility in Central Texas.

On Monday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC), accused Border Patrol agents of forcing migrants to drink from toilets. “Officers were keeping women in cells w/ no water & had told them to drink out of the toilets,” she tweeted.

National Border Patrol Council President and Border Patrol Agent Brandon Judd expressed his anger at the accusations leveled by AOC at the agents his union represents. His interview aired on Breitbart News Tonight.

“Nobody is forced to drink out of a toilet and nobody is told to drink out of a toilet,” Judd explained. “Its completely and totally a baseless and ridiculous allegation and frankly it needs to be investigated and she needs to be exposed.”

Responding to a statement from the freshman representative that she would rather be morally correct than factually accurate, Judd told Breitbart News, “How can you have the moral high ground if you are going to throw facts out the window and spew falsehoods? And that’s what she is doing.”

Judd explained further, “She gives absolutely no contexts to these allegations that she is making and by not giving context she is trying to paint a false narrative and a false picture and she needs to be held accountable for that.”

Since Breitbart’s release of the leaked photos in 2014, Congress, under either party’s leadership, has done little to nothing in terms of reducing the numbers of migrant families and unaccompanied minors crossing the border illegally. In fact, the issue has gotten much worse.

In 2014, Border Patrol agents working the nine sectors of the southwest border with Mexico apprehended 68,445 family units and 68, 541 unaccompanied minors, according to information obtained from the FY2014 Southwest Border Migration Report. A total of  136,986 migrant families and children.

During the first eight months of FY 2019, those numbers more than doubled. The most recent report from CBP shows that Border Patrol agents apprehended 332,981 migrants families and 56,278 unaccompanied minors — 389,259 total families and children (a 184 percent increase).

Despite these massive increases in the numbers of children and family units crossing the border, the most recent spending legislation approved by Congress last week provides “NO funding for ICE Detention Beds,” Breitbart News reported.

AOC went even further — criticizing Mayfair for making beds for migrants families to sleep on.

At the end of a lengthy discussion on Twitter, Darby concluded, “It’s absolutely right and noble to be upset about the humanitarian crisis on our border, my point is that some seem to only be upset now that it’s politically expedient to be upset. That’s all.

WATCH: Occasional-Cortex Is Upset That Her Salary Won’t Be Increased To $178,500 — “It’s Not Even Like A Raise”


Written by K. Walker on June 11, 2019

URL of the original posting site: https://clashdaily.com/2019/06/watch-occasional-cortex-is-upset-that-her-salary-wont-be-increased-to-178500-its-not-even-like-a-raise/

When her fellow Congressional Democrats pulled the bill that would give themselves a pay increase, AOC seemed pretty upset. Poor baby!

On Monday, Congressional Democrat leaders canceled the vote on a bill that would have given a salary increase to lawmakers for the first time since 2009. The Congressional Dems faced backlash from both Republicans and Democrats on the proposal which would have increased salaries to lawmakers by $4500. Currently, Members of the House make $174,000 annually, but those with official leadership titles and responsibilities make more.

An increase of $4500 might be a simple “cost of living increase” for AOC, but that would be a whopping 13.8 percent raise for someone earning the median U.S. income of $62,175 according to the June 2018 numbers. Could you imagine waking up to a (nearly) 14 percent raise?

I know I could. Mama needs a new pair of shoes!

Trending: Liberals Pledge Not To Have Babies Because Of CLIMATE Change

Just kidding. I’ve got three kids and two are teenage boys.

Yep, that’s more like it. (Sigh)

Seriously, $4500 a year ain’t nothing to sneeze at, despite her claim that it’s just an increase for the “cost of living.”

Maybe it’s the rent for her luxury apartment that’s straining AOC’s resources. You know, those luxury apartments that she railed against before she got elected? The ones that have the mysterious and terrifying garbage disposals. Yeah, those. She’s responded to the criticism of her new digs by arguing that luxury apartments like the one she lives in should be a “basic right.”

Speaking of responding to criticism, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez took to the Twitters to complain about the nixing of the “cost of living increase.”

She also spoke to members of the Media(D) about her thoughts (such as they are).

AOC called the move “superficial” and said that the pay raise wasn’t a real pay raise because it was a “cost of living adjustment.” She said, “Members of Congress, retail workers, everybody should get a cost of living increases to accommodate for the changes in our economy.”

What changes in the economy could that be, I wonder?

AOC’s concern is the temptation for politicians to turn to “dark money” and lobbying. If the reports are true, she’d know quite a bit about “dark money” operations. 

Watch her talk to reporters here:

Isn’t it funny how Socialists (“Democratic” or otherwise) get really antsy when it comes to their money? They’re cool with taking your money, but heaven forbid that you keep them from lining their own pockets. Despite AOC’s claim that she’s fighting for “cost of living increases” for everyone, you know that there are some people that she would exclude.

Like the President.

And his kids.

Would she be fighting for raises for business owners like Jeff Bezos and Mark Zuckerberg? They work, don’t they? Do they need “cost of living increases,” too?

I’m thinking that those folks would be mysteriously excluded in her noble quest for “cost of living increases” for all.

Incidentally, AOC embraces Modern Monetary Theory which says that countries with their own currency don’t really need to worry about debt because they can just print more money and it’s no biggie. Yeah, that’s working well in Venezuela right now, isn’t it? Printing more money devalues the currency and contributes to hyperinflation.

Frankly, this young lady makes more sense than the real AOC.

Well, she is certainly more adorable!

Don’t get me wrong, though. I want AOC to continue speaking. As long as she does, she makes my job easy.

AFL-CIO Union Turns on AOC as Blue Collar Workers Realize She’s Targeting Them


Reported By Ben Marquis | Published March 13, 2019 at 2:10pm

When Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez first introduced the costly socialist power grab known as the Green New Deal — with a matching resolution in the Senate by Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Ed Markey — it was widely criticized and mocked as absurd and unconstitutional by the right.

Even some on the left expressed misgivings about the proposal to fundamentally transform the entirety of the United States’ energy sector, economy and much of society in general, ostensibly to combat climate change but in reality to centralize more power and control with the federal government.

Now the Democrats who support the measure put forward by Ocasio-Cortez are facing an incredible predicament as a major force for fundraising and voter support on the left — organized labor unions, especially the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations, or AFL-CIO — have come out firmly against the Green New Deal.

That will force some Democrats to choose between placating their typically moderate liberal union worker voters or appeasing the increasingly rabid and radical far-left base of the party that demands significant action on environmental concerns.

Republican Wyoming Sen. John Barrasso tweeted out a copy of a letter sent from leaders of the AFL-CIO labor union conglomerate to Markey and Ocasio-Cortez,. It expressed how the labor unions simply couldn’t support the Green New Deal proposal that would “cause immediate harm to millions of our members and their families,” a message with which the Republican senator agreed.

The letter, dated March 8, began by noting that union workers weren’t consulted on the ideas put forward in the proposal, even as those workers stood most at risk of facing severe economic disruptions and potential job loss because of the proposed policies. The unions agreed that some action was required to address the eventual impact of man-made climate change, and even expressed support for investment in new technologies to produce clean and carbon-free energy. However, they seemed to balk at some of the proposals — such aiming to do away with the current national dependence on fossil fuels like oil and natural gas within 10 years — as being non-specific and threatening toward the survival of their jobs and various sectors of the industrial economy.

The AFL-CIO letter stated that the Green New Deal is “not rooted in an engineering-based approach and makes promises that are not achievable or realistic.”

“We will not accept proposals that could cause immediate harm to millions of our members and their families,” the letter proclaimed. “We will not stand by and allow threats to our members’ jobs and their families’ standard of living go unanswered.”

The letter closed by reiterating that something needed to be done, but suggested that discussions be held about “responsible” solutions that would not utterly destroy the energy and industrial sectors of the economy and the livelihoods of those who work in those and related areas.

The letter was signed by Cecil Roberts, international president of the United Mine Workers of America, and Lonnie Stephenson, international president of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, as well as eight other major labor unions under the AFL-CIO banner.

The Washington Post reported that the criticisms in the letter seemed to echo comments made to the media just days prior by AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka while he was on Capitol Hill to speak with lawmakers.

Trumka said, “Look, we need to address the environment. We need to do it quickly. But we need to do it in a way that doesn’t put these communities behind, and leave segments of the economy behind.

“So we’ll be working to make sure that we do two things: that by fixing one thing we don’t create a problem somewhere else,” he added.

Labor unions have long been relied upon by the Democratic Party for considerable support in elections, but that support has been wavering in recent years, given the increasingly leftward lurch of the party’s base and elected officials who stand fundamentally at odds with the more moderate and conservative-leaning rank-and-file workers who make up private-sector unions.

President Donald Trump siphoned off quite a few of those typically Democrat-voting union workers in the 2016 election.

If Democrats continue to press forward with their proposal to wreck the economy and energy/industrial sectors as we currently know them, that problematic trend for Democrats will likely continue and grow devastatingly larger in the 2020 election.

Reporter Catches Extremely Disturbing Behavior from Linda Sarsour’s Apparent Bodyguard


Reported By Malachi Bailey | Published March 7, 2019 at 1:02pm

Linda Sarsour, a far-left activist and known anti-Semite, turned her bodyguard on a reporter who asked about Israel’s right to exist at Sarsour’s rally for Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar. Sarsour’s rally for Omar, who is known for her anti-Semitic tweets about “hook-nosed Jews,” was held in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday. Like the freshman congresswoman, Sarsour is notoriously anti-Semitic and known to have ties to radical Islamic groups.

And of course, Sarsour is a supporter of the “one-state solution” in the Middle East, which means the far-left activist wants to get rid of the Jewish state.

Considering Sarsour’s notoriety as founder of the Women’s March movement, known anti-Semitism and outspoken support for Omar, it makes sense why a reporter would confront her about her radical stance on Israel.

“Linda, do you believe the state of Israel has a right to exist?” a reporter asked Sarsour on Wednesday.

“We’ll answer questions later after the press conference,” Sarsour said. “I’ll be happy to answer them.”

The reporter patiently waited until after the press conference, but Sarsour’s apparent bodyguards blocked him from asking questions. As the bodyguards stopped the reporter from confronting Sarsour, he asked, “Why are you guys pushing me here?” The bodyguard repeatedly asked the reporter, “Why are you here?” and brought up anti-Semitic stereotypes about Jewish money. “Do you work for Israel? How much do you get paid? Do they pay you enough?” the bodyguard angrily asked.

The bodyguard’s comments were eerily similar to the comments made about Jewish “lobbyists” from Omar last month.

This is what the face of the new Democratic Party looks like; a growing portion of Democrats now support radical Islam and have a disdain for Jewish people. And don’t be tricked into thinking it’s only a few radicals on the left. Omar isn’t only supported by Sarsour — the representative also has the backing of her freshman colleague, Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Ocasio-Cortez, who is immensely popular in far-left circles, made it clear that she isn’t bothered by Omar’s anti-Semitism. Omar and Ocasio-Cortez might not publicly support radicals like Sarsour, but they definitely have the support of radicals, and that’s evidence enough of the representatives’ extremist dog whistling.

Democrats should be concerned because their party is being taken over by a coalition of extreme socialists and radical Islam sympathizers.

Nolte: Luddite Ocasio-Cortez Says We All Need to Stop Reproducing


Commentary by John Nolte | Monday, February 25, 2019

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) took her climate alarmism to a whole new level Sunday when she said we should stop having children.

Using Instagram, America’s socialist “It Girl” filmed herself cutting up some food while she spread wild-eyed conspiracy theories about life as we know it ceasing in 12 years — a false claim she has made in the past.

On the issue of having children, she suggested it would be irresponsible to sentence young people to the holy environmental hell that is sure to come — unless, of course, we sign on to her Green New Deal, which would require us to slaughter all the cattle (to stop their deadly farts), end air travel, eliminate automobiles, turn our freedoms over to educated-but-dumb central planners like Ocasio-Cortez, and agree to return to the Dark Ages, a world where hot water heaters, TVs, and automobiles will be useless on a cloudy day.

“Our planet is going to hit disaster if we don’t turn this ship around and so it’s basically like, there’s a scientific consensus that the lives of children are going to be very difficult,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “And it does lead, I think, young people to have a legitimate question, you know, Is it okay to still have children?”

What planet is she living on?

Our air has never been cleaner, our water has never been clearer, there are more trees in America today than there were a hundred years ago, the crying Indian solved our litter problem, we are living longer and healthier lives, and we continue to find an abundance of natural resources, including natural gas and oil.

As a child of the ’70s, I marvel at the difference between now and then, and what got us here are the kind of technical innovations that can only come from a capitalistic society and the American people voting for common sense laws about protecting our water and air.

Ocasio-Cortez is a hysterical, power-mad luddite, a charismatic grifter desperate to undermine all the technological progress of the last hundred years.

Our species has already tried to live off of green power, to live off the whims of the water, land, sun, fire, and wind… It sucked. If you want to know what life looks like under Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal, watch HBO’s Deadwood.

And you can bet that while we are all living in massive government housing projects taking cold showers and eating seaweed burgers, Ocasio-Cortez and her ilk will be living like Stalin in a dacha by the sea.

For decades we have suffered with the threat of these climate hucksters, these fanatics who tell us the end is nigh unless we give up everything that makes life worth living, including our freedoms.

They told us….

  • Another Ice Age is coming.
  • Overpopulation would mean worldwide starvation.
  • Nuclear war is imminent.
  • The oceans will be dead by 1995.
  • The ozone layer will disappear.
  • Super hurricanes would wipe out our East Coast.
  • New York would be underwater by now.
  • We would run out of oil by 1999.
  • The end of snow!
  • Seal levels would rise 20 feet by now.
  • The ocean conveyor would shut down.
  • Polar bears would be extinct.
  • The Arctic Ocean would be ice free by now.

…and it was all lies.

Oh, and as I speak, our planet is cooling — not a crazy kind of cooling, but enough to prove that this living organism we live on runs through various cycles and could care less if we drive a Prius or Hummer.

Ocasio-Cortez is young and attractive and talks like a harmless Disney character, but she is crazed for power and telling audacious lies in pursuit of it.

Dems Turn on Each Other After Amazon Debacle, Ocasio-Cortez at the Center of It All


Reported By Benjamin Arie | Published February 16, 2019 at 3:28am

The Democrat party in New York seems to have finally found its arch-enemy: the Democrat party in New York.

In the latest in a series of bad public relations debacles for the liberal party, Democrat officials seem to have formed a circular firing squad of finger-pointing after retail giant Amazon announced they won’t be building a massive headquarters in the Empire state after all. The major employer had previously looked at several locations for a new campus, which would have been expected to bring billions in revenue and tens of thousands of jobs. Amazon, run by liberal billionaire Jeff Bezos, initially indicated that they’d be investing in New York, but it looks like that deal has fallen apart.

“After much thought and deliberation, we’ve decided not to move forward with our plans to build a headquarters for Amazon in Long Island City, Queens,” declared Amazon representative Jodi Seth, according to CNN.

The company went out of its way to make it known that politicians — many of them liberals — were at the center of their decision to pull out from the deal.

“(A) number of state and local politicians have made it clear that they oppose our presence and will not work with us to build the type of relationships that are required to go forward with the project we and many others envisioned in Long Island City,” the Amazon statement continued.

One of those politicians is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democrat socialist congresswoman who seemed to openly brag about … er, keeping 25,000 jobs out of the state she represents.

“Anything is possible: today was the day a group of dedicated, everyday New Yorkers & their neighbors defeated Amazon’s corporate greed, its worker exploitation, and the power of the richest man in the world,” the socialist posted on Twitter, as if blocking new jobs were some great accomplishment.

Meanwhile, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, himself a Democrat, expressed much more frustration about the lost deal.

“We competed in and won the most hotly contested national economic development competition in the United States, resulting in at least 25,000-40,000 good paying jobs for our state and nearly $30 billion dollars in new revenue to fund transit improvements, new housing, schools and countless other quality of life improvements,” he pointed out, seeming to distance himself from those who were celebrating Amazon’s reversal.

The liberal governor didn’t call out Ocasio-Cortez by name but certainly seemed to direct some of his ire at the lost opportunity towards her.

“However, a small group politicians put their own narrow political interests above their community — which poll after poll showed overwhelmingly supported bringing Amazon to Long Island City — the state’s economic future and the best interests of the people of this state,” he wrote.

“The New York State Senate has done tremendous damage,” Cuomo blasted. “They should be held accountable for this lost economic opportunity.”

Once again, reality has reared its ugly head. It turns out that individuals and corporations alike are wary of high-tax, expensive states, and are willing to “vote with their feet” if an area isn’t offering them economic or tax advantages.

The idea that people avoid places that are hostile toward business and gravitate to locations that welcome them with pro-growth policies is Economics 101, but then again, politicians like Ocasio-Cortez seem clueless about even these basics.

As the young congresswoman continues to butt heads with fellow Democrats from Nancy Pelosi to Chuck Schumer and now Andrew Cuomo, it will be interesting to watch which way the liberal party slides in the coming months. Far left progressives like Ocasio-Cortez may have the media spotlight right now, but they may be in for a surprise if they keep angering power brokers on their own side of the aisle.

Home Depot Co-Founder Blasts Socialism, Quietly Calls Out Ocasio-Cortez in Explosive Interview


Reported By Karista Baldwin | January 27, 2019 at 10:32am

The co-founder of The Home Depot slammed supporters of socialism during a Friday interview on Fox News. Bernard Marcus, The Home Depot co-founder, talked to Fox News host Neil Cavuto about the failure of socialism in Venezuela and Cuba. Marcus said socialism has devastated those countries and compared their present state to what they were like before socialist rule. He specifically called Cuba a “perfect example of socialism gone wrong.”

“They took a great country. They put it right down the drain in every way possible,” Marcus said about Cuba.

“People are starving to death. Medical (care) is not available for them. And we have a group of people in Washington today, new representatives especially, that look at socialism as the way to go,” he said. “And if you don’t think that’s dangerous, I do.”

Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is one such self-proclaimed “socialist Democrat.” Ocasio-Cortez is one of the leading backers of the Green New Deal, which calls for some of the largest government expansion in decades.

Marcus told Cavuto that he believed the growing support for socialism among young Americans “comes right out of the universities.”

“You see students graduating today and a very high percentage … almost 50 percent of students coming out of universities today believe that socialism is the answer,” Marcus said.

One recent survey found that that 51 percent of American millennials would rather live under socialist or communist rule than in a capitalist country. A study by Campus Reform found that Ocasio-Cortez’s alma mater, Boston University, overwhelmingly supported Democratic causes. The study found that of the donations given by Boston University faculty in 2017-2018, 97 percent were to Democrat politicians and Democrat organizations. And support for socialism springs from these disproportionately left-leaning schools.

“That’s frightening to me because the things that made this country great, that created the wealth of this country — and I mean the wealth of every single person right down the line — the best medical care in the world, the best housing in the world, that’s why people want to come here, is because of the system, and that’s the free enterprise system,” Marcus said.

Instead of looking to socialism, Marcus said to look at what the U.S. is doing right. He pointed to the current low unemployment and economic prosperity.

“Why would you want to take that formula, where there’s prosperity, where jobs are out there where people can pay their own way, take care of their families. Why would you want to change that?”

It’s a good question to ask those like Ocasio-Cortez who are eager to proclaim the virtues of socialism.  One just needs to look to Cuba or Venezuela to see what a few decades of socialism will do to a country.
