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”.

Company founded by Ocasio-Cortez in 2012 owes $1,870 in back taxes

Al Sharpton approved.

From NY Post: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants to pass sweeping tax hikes on the wealthy, but the freshman lawmaker might want to take care of her own unpaid tax bill first.

Brook Avenue Press, a company she founded in 2012 to publish children’s books in The Bronx, owes the state $1,870.36 in corporate taxes, public records show.

The state slapped the company with a warrant on July 6, 2017, two months after Ocasio-Cortez announced her candidacy to run against Democratic incumbent Joe Crowley for the district that encompasses parts of Queens and The Bronx.

The state requires businesses to pay a corporation tax on a sliding scale based on revenue. The minimum payment last year was $25. “The company probably got numerous letters from the state and probably ignored them,” one New York City accountant theorized.

Public records show the state dissolved the company in October 2016, which can happen when a business fails to pay corporate taxes or file a return.

The state Tax Department won’t comment on individual companies but typically files warrants as a last resort after trying to collect money. “This is the first we’re hearing of it, and we won’t have any additional comment until we look into it,” Ocasio-Cortez’s spokesman, Corbin Trent, said Saturday.

Brook Avenue Press was set up to “develop and identify stories and literature in urban areas like New York, specifically communities like The Bronx,” Ocasio-Cortez said in a YouTube video posted in October 2011, months before she filed incorporation papers for the company in July 2012.

The company relied on cheap office space in a city-subsidized program to help small businesses in The Bronx. Called the Sunshine Bronx Business Incubator, the program was housed in a renovated former printing plant in Hunts Point, where rates for office spaces and tech services in 2012 averaged between $99 for a “virtual office” and $275 per month for local start-ups.

Ocasio-Cortez was featured on the city’s website for the incubator, and The National Hispanic Institute named her a social entrepreneur in residence. “You see a huge return on your investment here,” a 22-year-old Ocasio-Cortez told a reporter in July 2012. “People pay $500 an hour for consulting that we get for free by the water cooler.”

The tax warrant was issued to Brook Avenue Press at the incubator’s address on Garrison Avenue.

But despite her promise to work with “designers, artists and authors that really know the urban story and help develop stories for kids,” The Post could not find any books the publishing house produced.

Last week, Ocasio-Cortez signed on to a bill to tax stock trades and has previously called for a 70 percent tax on incomes over $10 million in order to help finance the Green New Deal, her environmental manifesto calling for “new national, social, industrial and economic mobilization” to save the planet.

Green Hypocrite: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez travels in planes & gas-guzzling cars instead of mass transit

Like so many Democrats, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is a hypocrite.

AOC is a leading advocate of the Green New Deal that, in the name of climate change and saving the environment, aims to end America’s reliance on fossil fuels in 10 years, at a cost estimated by the American Action Forum to be $93 trillion.

Speaking of herself and her fellow millennials, AOC said: “We’re like, ‘The world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change.’ And, like, this is the war; this is our World War II.”

She even questioned whether young people should have children, because “Our planet is going to face disaster if we don’t turn this ship around” and “the lives of children are going to be very difficult.”

AOC herself, however, does not practice what she preaches.

The New York Post reports that AOC was treated as a liberal savior at yesterday’s “inclusive” St. Pat’s for All parade:

  • Councilman Daniel Dromm (D-Queens) introduced her as “somebody who has been shaking up Washington, DC, the political world, and has been talking truth to power.”
  • City Comptroller Scott Stringer likened Ocasio-Cortez to his cousin, the late US Rep. Bella Abzug, saying that “when she [Abzug] got elected they said the same things about her and they tried to slow her down.”

Despite getting a hero’s welcome, AOC ducked out of the parade before the end and hopped into a chauffered white minivan at 48th Street and Skillman Avenue, a mere 5-minute walk from a subway station (at 46th and Bliss).

The 2016 white Chrysler Town & Country minivan gets an average of just 17 mpg in the city, according to the US Department of Energy.

A day ago, the New York Post reported on the reliance of AOC’s political campaign on gas-guzzling cars and planes, instead of public transit, even though a subway station was just a one-minute walk (138 feet) from her Elmhurst campaign office in Queens:

  • In all, AOC’s campaign spent $25,174.54 on 66 airline transactions, and $29,365.70 on emissions-spewing vehicles, including 1,049 transactions for Uber, Lyft, Juno and other car services, federal filings show. The campaign had 505 Uber expenses alone.
  • AOC’s campaign shelled out only $8,335.41 on 52 MetroCard (public transit) transactions.
  • AOC or her staff took Amtrak only 18 times, despite high-speed rail being the cornerstone of her Green New Deal.
  • In contrast, fellow freshman Rep. Max Rose (D-NY) — whose 11th district is more than twice the size of AOC’s, but has limited public transit options — listed only 329 transactions for car services, totaling $6,091.29.

Ocasio-Cortez: “Like, is it okay to still have children?”

What happened to my body, my choice?

From Fox News: Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said young people have to ask a “legitimate question” in the wake of climate change and mounting student loan debt: “Is it okay to still have children?”

In an Instagram Live video over the weekend, Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., welcomed supporters into her kitchen—and gave a “special hello to my haters”—while she made chili and poured herself a glass of white wine.

“Our planet is going to face disaster if we don’t turn this ship around,” she said, as she chopped sweet potatoes. “And so it’s basically like, there is a scientific consensus that the lives of children are going to be very difficult and it does lead, I think young people, to have a legitimate question. Ya know, should—is it okay to still have children?

She continued: “Not just financially because people are graduating with 20, 30, 100 thousand dollars of student loan debt so they can’t even afford to have kids in the house, but there’s also just this basic moral question, like, what do we do?”

“And even if you don’t have kids, there are still children here in the world and we have a moral obligation to them to leave a better world to them.”

Ocasio-Cortez answered questions from viewers while she continued to prepare her meal. “What would Trump put in chili? BOLOGNA!” she quipped. “He would put bologna in chili. Both because I think that’s what his taste palate is developed to, and for the obvious reason.”

But one of the serious questions was about her signature proposal in the House- the Green New Deal.

The whole premise of the Green New Deal, is that we’re screwed on climate. I’m sorry to break it to you,” she said. “When it comes to climate in particular, we’re actually screwed. There is a global threat to the planet.

She added: “At this point, we don’t even have to prove it. Just walk outside in the winter in a lot of places, and its, either way worse than you’re used to, or way warmer than you’re used to.”

“Hurricanes, storms, wildfires,” she said. “We are dying now.”

While the resolution itself would do little because it is non-binding, it is the first time the policy proposal has been formally outlined in Congress.

“If we called a vote on the Green New Deal, tomorrow or Tuesday when I got back to D.C., and it passed, NOTHING WOULD HAPPEN,” she stressed, seemingly downplaying the impact should it be passed. “Literally, nothing would happen because it is a resolution. It is a statement. Be it resolved. It is us agreeing to a statement. Not any binding course of action.”

The resolution says “a new national social, industrial and economic mobilization on a scale not seen since World War II and the New Deal” is an opportunity to tackle systemic injustices toward minority groups, create millions of high-wage jobs and “provide unprecedented levels of prosperity and economic security for all people of the United States.”

Its proposals include “net-zero greenhouse gas emissions through a fair and just transition for all communities and workers;” job creation; healthcare for all; infrastructure investment; guarantees of clean water, healthy food and sustainable environment; and a curiously undefined “access to nature.”

Beyond those broad proposals, the plan and accompanying documents from Ocasio-Cortez include a range of far-fetched goals — and drew swift scorn from Republicans and other critics. The Republican National Committee dubbed it a “socialist wish list” that would kill at least 1 million jobs and disrupt global trade — while costing trillions.

Saturday Funnies! AOC dumb quotes

Some choice Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) quotes:

“Unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs. Unemployment is low because people are working 60, 70, 80 hours a week and can barely feed their family.”

“A 17-year-old can walk into a shop and purchase an assault weapon.” — WRONG! 17 year olds cannot buy any kind of gun in America. Under federal law, the minimum age to buy a handgun from a licensed dealer is 21. But the age limit drops to 18 if the gun is being purchased from a private, unlicensed seller, which could be a neighbor or someone online, or at gun show. (The Hill)

“We’re gonna flip this seat red” — She meant “blue”, but maybe she spoke the truth: “Red” as in communist red.

“She is, she is the leader of, of– no no, she, I mean, um, um, Speaker, or rather Leader Pelosi, hopefully, um, you know, we’ll see, she’s uh, she’s the current leader of the party and I think the party absolutely does have its leadership in the House, we our leadership in the Senate as well.”

“And let’s not forget that the reason that the Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act is because they ruled that each of these monthly payments that everyday Americans make is a tax. And so while it may not seem like we pay that tax on April 15th, we pay it every single month, or we do pay it tax season if we don’t buy, you know, these plans off of the exchange.”

“Americans have the sticker shock of healthcare as it is, and what we’re also not talking about is why aren’t we incorporating the cost of all the funeral expenses of those who died because they can’t afford access to healthcare? That is part of the cost of our system.”

By the way, she never said “Under capitalism, man oppresses man. Under socialism, it’s the other way around.” (FactCheck.org)

Multimillionaire actor John Cusack is a socialist who can’t spell

Actor John Cusack, 52, is high-school graduate who dropped out of New York University after one year, saying he just had “too much fire in his belly” for college. He then went into acting and is probably best known for director Roland Emmerich’s 2009 disaster film 2012, in which Cusack played a struggling novelist who saves the world from the apocalypse.

Although John Cusack is very white (Irish American) and one of the wealthiest of Americans, with an estimated net worth of $50 million, he is a member of the Democratic Socialists of America, which espouses socialism, “internationalism” (globalism), LGBT rights, and anti-white and anti-male supremacy “socialist feminism”. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is also a member of the Democratic Socialists of America; millionaire Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) is a self-described “democratic socialist”.

Cusack’s socialism (Medicare for all; Green New Deal is not about energy, but a way to “transform the country”), anti-GOP (“gop deathkkkult”), and hysterical anti-Trumpism (Trump colludes with the Russians; is a “nazi” who uses “deception”, “lies”, “gulags”, “internment camps”; and “tortures” and “abducts” children) are amply revealed in his tweets, which are replete with cringe-inducing spelling/grammatical errors that are not mere typos because there are so many of them.

Below is a sample of his latest tweets. Cusack’s politics are underlined in red; his spelling/grammatical errors are circled in red.

If you patronize this faux socialist by watching his movies and TV, you’re contributing to his $50 million fortune and enabling his political activism.

Paging the socialist-loving Hollyweird folk: LA entertainment workers living out of their cars

The Hollywood Reporter reports that many entertainment workers are living out of their cars due to worsening income inequality. According to the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority, 15,748 Angelenos currently live in his or her vehicle. Those in the entertainment industry make up a small – yet visible – population of homeless people living in their cars.

From the Hollywood Reporter:

“Though LAHSA does not survey professions in its annual Homeless Count, community engagement manager Jonathan Hans says entertainment-industry types are a familiar group: “Especially within our younger population, it’s not necessarily uncommon that a group of young kids came out [to L.A.] because somebody told them that they would get them a record deal and then they ended up living out of their van,” he says. Many now-well-known industry figures — Tiffany Haddish, Chris Pratt, Drew Carey, Kelly Clarkson — have said they lived in their car before rising to fame.”

Read the whole story about the homeless entertainment workers here.

Last week, libtard Chrissy Teigen invited democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to a Grammy party. Chrissy tweeted: “@AOC hello my hero, do you wanna come over and watch the grammys with us? there will be pizza”

Other Hollyweird libtards got in on the Twitter thread.

From Jesse Tyler Ferguson of Modern Family: “She can have my portion!”

Ellen Show producer Andy Lasser: “I’ll make cookies.”

The executive producer of the Big Bang Theory Bill Prady tweeted, “I will drive and wait in the car.”

I have a question for the socialist-loving proggies: If you truly believe in the principles of socialism, then why aren’t you sharing a portion of your wealth with those needy people who work so hard to help make you rich?

FYI: The net worth of these individuals: Chrissy Teigen: $26 million. Jesse Tyler Ferguson: $20 million. Andy Lasser: $12 million. Bill Prady: $150 million.

Hey Hollyweird: If you are going to support a socialist, then put your money where your Twitter mouth is and meet the public needs and help end poverty amongst your fellow co-workers. After all, it’s a shame that so few of you working in the entertainment industry should benefit from individual profit.
