Socialist Ocasio-Cortez unveils anti-poverty bill that gives illegal aliens access to taxpayer benefits

Claro que si.

From Daily Mail: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is promoting a bill that would make all housing units in the country rent stabilized while giving illegal immigrants access to health care and other social welfare services.

The first-term House Democrat from New York this past week rolled out her six-bill proposal that has been given the title ‘A Just Society’.

The set of bills ‘aims to combat the greatest threats to our country, our democracy, and our planet: economic inequality and climate change,’ the Bronx native writes on her web site.

Ocasio-Cortez wants to adjust the federal poverty line so that it takes into account factors like geography, health insurance costs, and modern living essentials which would include internet access.

AOC also wants to cap the amount that landlords can increase rent.

Under her proposal, landlords would only be able to raise rents by a maximum of 3 per cent every year – or in line with the increase in the consumer price index – whichever is greater.

The set of proposed laws would also allow anyone convicted of a crime to gain access to federal poverty programs.

A study by the Brookings Institute found that nearly half of freed former inmates have no reported earnings in the first several years after leaving prison while half of those who do find work earn less than $10,090 a year.

Formerly incarcerated people are also often denied government benefits because they have criminal records, thus perpetuating the cycle of poverty.

‘I think this really starts to approach, head on, economic injustice in America,’ Ocasio-Cortez told The New York Times last week. We are at our richest point that we’ve ever been, but we’ve also been our most unequal.’

Perhaps one of the more controversial elements of her proposal is to grant those without legal status in the United States unfettered access to social services. ‘Notwithstanding any other provision of law … an individual who is an alien (without regard to the immigration status of that alien) may not be denied any Federal public benefit solely on the basis of the individual’s immigration status,’ her proposal reads.

50 years of doomsday climate-change predictions that didn’t come true

Yesterday, Sept. 20, 2019, was Friday, a school day. But countless young people in the U.S. and across the world skipped school to protest in a global “climate strike”.

In the “woke” San Francisco Bay Area, school children skipped school to protest about climate change, putting pressure on politicians and corporations they say are contributing to an environmental crisis.

As reported by Berkeleyside, one of the protesters, Berkeley High junior Adrienne Mermin, 16, described climate change as apocalyptic. She warned: “There’s a deadline on our existence and a deadline on when we can reverse this. When climate change and climate justice was connected to environmental racism, it became more than just ‘the ice caps are melting,’ and more ‘this affects all of us, and every single one of us can help stop this.’”

Mermin was echoing the doomsday warnings of adults like Al Gore, who predicted the North Pole would be ice-free by 2016; Prince Charles, who said in 2009 that because of capitalism and consumerism, we had just 96 months or 8 years, i.e., until 2017, to save the world; and more recently Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who proclaimed Miami would disappear in “a few years” due to climate change.

Writing for the Competitive Enterprise Institute on Sept. 18, 2019, Myron Ebell and Steven J. Milloy remind us that Gore, Chucky and AOC are just the latest instances of doomsayers who have been predicting climate and environmental disaster since the 1960s. Like Gore, et al., the makers of these apocalyptic predictions often are individuals holding respected positions in government and science. The problem is this: “None of the apocalyptic predictions with due dates as of today have come true,” and the media won’t report on the failed predictions.

What follows is a collection of apocalyptic climate predictions from notable people in government and science:

  1. In 1967, Stanford University “population biologist” Paul Ehrlich said that because of unrestrained population growth, “the time of famines” was already upon us and would be at its worst and most disastrous by 1975. (Salt Lake Tribune, Nov. 17, 1967, p. 9)
  2. Two years later in 1969, Ehrlich warned that “by the time we have enough evidence to convince people” about the world’s runaway population growth, a limited food supply, and man’s contamination of the environment, “you’re dead” because “everybody will disappear in a cloud of blue stream in 20 years” — i.e., by 1989. (New York Times, August 10, 1969)
  3. A year later in 1970, Ehrlich once again sounded a doomsday warning that “the oceans would be as dead as Lake Erie in less than a decade,” and that America would have water rationing by 1974 and food rationing by 1980. (Redlands Daily Facts, October 6, 1970)
  4.  In 1970, James P. Lodge Jr., a scientist at the national center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado, predicted that air pollution would obliterate the sun and cause a new ice age in the first third of the 21st century, and that if the current rate of increase in electric power generation continued, the demands for cooling water would “boil dry the entire flow of the rivers and streams of continental United States.” (Boston Globe, April 16, 1970)
  5. In 1971, Dr. S. I. Rasool of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and Columbia University, predicted that “in the next 50 years, i.e., by 2021, the fine dust we put into the atmosphere by fossil-fuel burning could screen out so much sunlight that the average temperature could drop by six degrees. (Washington Post, July 9, 1971)
  6. In 1972, R. K. Matthews, chairman of Brown University’s Department of Geological Sciences, wrote in a letter to President Richard Nixon that “a global deterioration of climate, by order of magnitude larger than any hitherto experienced by civilized mankind, is a very real possibility and indeed may be due very soon.” (NOAA, October 2015)
  7. In 1974, “preliminary analysis” of space satellites conducted by European climatologists George and Helena Kukla showed that the world had plunged into a new ice age, with snow and ice cover of the earth having increased by as much as 12% in just five years, from 1967 to 1972. (The Guardian, January 29, 1974)
  8. In 1974, “a growing number of scientists” found that the earth’s atmosphere had been gradually cooling for the last three decades. “Since the 1940s the mean global temperature has dropped about 2.7° F.” and “The telltale signs are everywhere — from the unexpected persistence and thickness of pack ice in the waters around Iceland to the southward migration of a warmth-loving creature like the armadillo from the Midwest”. (TIME, June 24, 1974)

Go to Competitive Enterprise Institute for 18 more apocalyptic climate-change predictions that didn’t come true, one of which is this doozy:

In February 2004, a secret Pentagon report that was “suppressed by U.S. defence chief” but “obtained” by the UK’s The Observer, warned that because of climate change, Britain would be “plunged into a ‘Siberian’ climate by 2020,” as “nuclear conflict, mega-droughts, famine and widespread rioting” would erupt across the world. (The Guardian, February 21, 2004)

Deception: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and UN humanitarian Angelina Jolie

Late last month, photographer Ivan Pierre Aguirre posted on his Twitter account some pictures of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) he’d taken last year.

As recounted by Fox News, the pics supposedly were taken at a protest before a “migrant” detention center in Tornillo, Texas. One image is of AOC bent over in anguish; in another, her hands were covering her face.

AOC retweeted the pics, writing that she’ll “never forget this, because it was the moment I saw with my own eyes that the America I love was becoming a nation that steals refugee children from their parents, & caged them. More kids died after this. To date, no one has been held accountable. We need to save these kids.”

The pictures were ridiculed as there was no sight of actual migrant children. Some say the pics of AOC “protesting” near a chain-linked fence were staged, as she was looking onto what appears to be a mostly empty parking lot.

A social media user tweeted this about the above pic: “Did the cars cause all that pain and anguish?”

An AOC spokesman told The Hill that allegations that the photos were staged are “right-wing garbage” that are “in no way related to reality or truth”.

Then there is Hollyweirdo Angelina Jolie, who is lauded for her humanitarian work as a Special Envoy for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), for which she was recognized with a Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award and made an honorary Dame Commander of the Order of St Michael and St George, among other honors.

On June 7-8, 2019, Special Envoy Jolie visited Venezuelan refugees in camps along the Colombian-Venezuelan border (Daily Mail).

I had the below GIF made from a video of her visit, showing Jolie walking alongside a young girl. The girl had a big smile on her face as she looked up admiringly at Jolie. Then the girl made the mistake of bumping her arm against Jolie who, with her hand, deftly and quickly flicked the girl away. Watch the smile fade from the girl’s face.

Friggin’ hypocrites, AOC and Jolie.

Hollyweirdos Bette Midler insults First Lady Melania; Rosie O’Donnell says U.S. has 100,000+ concentration camps

Hollyweirdos are racing to the bottom in viciousness and stupidity.

The Left celebrate immigrants, especially illegal immigrants, but not when it comes to “white” immigrants from Europe.

On June 18, 2019, 73-year-old Bette Midler tweeted this entirely gratuitous insult at First Lady Melania Trump, a legal immigrant from Slovenia:

There once was a girl from Slovenia Who now lives right on Pennsylvinia To the East Room she’ll flee From her husband’s wee wee While he plays with his own schizophrenia

Then there’s lesbian Rosie O’Donnell, 57, whom a 2017 National Enquirer poll found to be the most hated Hollywood “celebrity”.

Last Monday night, June 24, on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, O’Donnell defended Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) outrageous comparison of illegal immigration detention centers to “concentration camps”.

The comparison is already rebuked by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington D.C.

The Museum, in a statement, condemns anyone making such comparisons:

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum unequivocally rejects efforts to create analogies between the Holocaust and other events, whether historical or contemporary.

But O’Donnell went further. In a rant, she claims there are “over 100,000” concentration camps spread across the United States (h/t NewsBusters):

Yeah, the concentration camps, even though there’s lots of controversy about the word. But actually, legitimate scholars who study genocide say, yes, these are, in fact, the criteria for concentration camps, they meet them. There are over 100,000 camps in nearly every state. There’s between 10,000 and 13,000 children, that could fill Radio City Music Hall twice. That’s how many children unaccompanied alone in these camps.

Who and what “legitimate scholars” would they be, O’Donnell? Are they as stupid and looney as you?

Participants in fun run organized by AOC unaware their registration fee was going toward her campaign

A fool and his money…

From Daily Mail: Runners who took part in an event organised by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez didn’t know they were donating to her campaign.

The New York Democrat, 29, held a 5k run in Queens on Saturday that she described as ‘a Family Fun Run supporting U.S. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.’

But many of the 400 runners didn’t realize their $30 registration fees were going directly into the lawmaker’s campaign funds, the New York Post reported.

‘We’re getting together for our own health, for our planet’s health … and to fight for the Green New Deal together,’ the freshman Democrat told the participants before they set off.

Supporters jogged through Astoria Park alongside a AOC, who walked the route and believed their money was going to help save the planet. ‘It’s going to help raise awareness and educate people,’ a female runner told The Post. ‘I think it’s really for this particular New Green Deal,’ said Brian Schwartz of Long Island. ‘No question.’

Another woman claimed: ‘It’s to help the environment. To support the Green New Deal. It’s a good cause.’

A notice on AOC’s Facebook page claiming that the run would support ‘U.S. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez & the Green New Deal’ added to the confusion.

However full disclosure was made in the fine print, which participants may have been unaware of. ‘Registration fees are contributions to AOC for Congress,’ reads the legal disclosure on aoc5k.com, which lists the Federal Election Commission rules that donors must follow.

‘It was a campaign fundraiser,’ Ocasio-Cortez spokesman Corbin Trent confirmed that the event was in fact a campaign fundraiser.

198 runners came from the Bronx and from Queens neighborhoods within the 14th congressional district at Saturday’s run. The remaining 200 came from other areas. Children as young as three took part with a $20 fee to join the kids 1k. It is understood participants paid $11,000 in total.

Some participants felt told the New York Post they were felt they were taken in by the misleading advertising. ‘The site says it’s to benefit her environmental plan,’ said one supporter who would not give his name. ‘If it is going to go directly to her campaign they should have said so.’

AOC whines her life is endangered by conservative criticisms

Christal Hayes reports for USA Today that yesterday, April 10, 2019, freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) tweeted that her life is in danger by a fundraising email sent out by the Ohio College Republican Federation (OCRF) with the subject line: “AOC is a domestic terrorist.”

The email, which was posted by Center for Public Integrity politics editor Dave Levinthal, asked for donations to OCRF to “stop the brainwashing” that has college students thinking that Ocasio-Cortez is a “role model”.

AOC whined in her tweet:

“This puts me in danger every time. Almost every time this uncalled for rhetoric gets blasted by conserv. grps, we get a spike in death threats to refer to Capitol Police. Multiple ppl have been arrested trying to harm me, Ilhan, & others. @GOP, what’s it going to take to stop?”

Ocasio-Cortez’s office did not respond to questions about the death threats and whether any arose from this specific email. 

In a tweet the next day (which is no longer available), OCRF issued an apology to AOC:

“We apologize to Congresswoman Ocascio-Cortez for the use of unacceptable language in this email, and we do not approve of the message conveyed.”

Hillary 2.0: AOC fakes southern accent before black audience

Hillary Clinton did it, patronizing and pandering to black audiences by speaking in an entirely phony southern drawl.

Now, another Demonrat is also faking a southern accent before a black audience.

Yesterday, speaking at Al Sharpton’s National Action Network in New York city, self-described socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who was a bartender when she was auditioned and recruited by the Demonrat Party, used a very bad southern accent that she never uses to tell an audience of predominately black people that there is nothing wrong with them serving other people in low skilled jobs. She said:

“I’m proud to be a bartender, ain’t nothin wrong with that. There’s nothing wrong with working retail, folding clothes for other people to buy. There is nothing wrong with preparing the food that your neighbors will eat. There is nothing wrong with driving the buses that take your family to work.”

[videopress 9K9tNMwF]

Ryan Saavedra reports for The Daily Wire that AOC’s speech “immediately sparked outrage as many accused her of racism, noting that her accent while speaking to black people was similar to how two-time failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton would speak to black people — which was widely condemned as racist.”

“African-American” Jamarcus Dove-Simmons (@Jamarcus_Dove) tweeted: “She trying too hard. The accent is so obvious ‘Ain’t nun wrong with dat’ Every African-American does not talk in this way. I guess you’re trying to ‘win the black vote.’ This ain’t it, @AOC”

Senate rejects AOC’s Green New Deal in 57-0 vote

Yesterday, March 26, 2019, the so-called Green New Deal, promoted by Demonrats like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) and 2020 presidential expirant Sen. Kamala “I-slept-my-way-into-politics” Harris (CA), failed to pass a procedural vote in the U.S. Senate.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) put the Deal to a vote to force Demonrats to take a public stand on the measure and so divide the Demon Party’s moderates and progressives. He tweeted:

”I could not be more glad that the American people will have the opportunity to learn precisely where each one of their senators stand on the ‘Green New Deal’: a radical, top-down, socialist makeover of the entire US economy.”

The final vote was 57 against, and 0 for the plan:

  • Two “red state” Democrats voted no: Sens. Joe Manchin (WVa) and Kyrsten Sinema (AZ).
  • 43 Demonrats voted “present”.

Ocasio-Cortez predictably mouthed off, calling the vote a political stunt and a “disgrace”.
