Meteorologist Takes AOC To TruthCity Over Her ‘Climate Crisis’ Blather


Written by Wes Walker on July 9, 2019

It rained in DC. So, naturally, the left’s little darling freaked out over it. And (naturally) pushed her agenda.

Gotta give her credit. As bad as her ideas are, she’s really REALLY committed to seeing them take hold in America. (If only we could say the same thing about some RINOs we could mention…)

But like so many people who speak beyond the limits of their knowledge and experience, it’s easy for someone who knows what the hell they’re talking about to take them to the woodshed for a good whoopin’.

Which is exactly what happened here.

Then again, what would some guy with a Ph.D. know compared to the much-touted AOC?

As it turns out, the answer is ‘A Lot’.

You should resist the emotional temptation to blame EVERY weather event on climate change.

But AOC has already put her cards on the table. She belonged to the radical group Democratic Socialists of America — whose Aggressively Anti-American and Anti-freedom policies we’ve covered elsewhere.

She’s not you’re typical America-loving politician with ideas that tilt to the Left. She’s a radical zealot willing to use any trick or tactic to achieve her political ends. Why would we expect anyone who came out of DSA to be anything BUT a radical zealot.

Fortunately for her, there are still enough patriotic Americans who are willing to kick her Marxist ideologies to the curb where they belong.

Hopefully, not to be recycled, but to be incinerated altogether.

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

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.

This Painting Of Soros & Ocasio-Cortez Is Hilarious And BRUTAL


Written by Wes Walker on March 11, 2019

He’s an amoral, opportunistic, power-hungry America-hating billionaire with a corrosive socialist Agenda. And now, his movement has found a banner-carrier.

With over three million Twitter followers, the credulous fans are lapping her up, too.

Forget that Soros is an unrepentant Nazi collaborator who hid his ethnicity while stripping other Jews of their freedom and property. Forget that he has orchestrated the collapse of national economies — destroying the lives and livelihoods of God alone knows how many unsuspecting victims.

None of that matters for Globalist power-players.

A new player has now taken the field, one that came ‘out of nowhere’. She cut her teeth working for Bernie 2016, and has picked up a trick or two about ‘community activism’.

She has a take-no-prisoners arrogance, a deep loathing for the history and institutions of America, the unflinching zealotry of a convert to a cause, and a rigid ignorance impervious to all logic.

Add to that mix her youth, her social media savvy, and the unswerving obedience of the Media(D)’s Partisan Press, and you have a wannabe American revolutionary with lofty goals every bit as transformative as Lenin, Castro, Che Guevera or Mao. And naturally, she’ll conveniently forget any of her objections to ‘dark money’ so long as it applies to any of her wealthy benefactors.

She’s the perfect delivery system for the Soros agenda… as depicted by Doug Giles’ latest piece in his MAGA series, Soros & His Dummy.
