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.
