From The Hill:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) is slated to join the committee leading the House’s oversight of U.S banks, lenders and financial markets.

Ocasio-Cortez has been recommended by Democratic leaders for a spot on the House Financial Services Committee, a Democratic source told The Hill on Tuesday. The full roster of Democrats joining the committee is expected to be released as soon as Tuesday night.

The next two years are going to be a trip!

Check out this montage of everytime AOC “got it wrong”…

California Congresswoman Maxine Waters just doesn’t care anymore.

A lot of Democrats don’t, actually.

According to Waters in a not-so-subtle threat, it’s time to “get rid” of “despicable” President Trump.

We must understand that the Fed does not work for the president of the United States. The Fed creates monetary policy based on what’s good for the economy and, of course, I may disagree from time to time with their decisions but we must not interfere. They must be independent. Right now Powell is saying that they’re dealing with inflation, but they don’t work for the president. The president can’t fire them. All that the president can do when he opens his mouth is rattle the markets. As a matter of fact, the volatility that you see in the markets is caused by the kinds of statements that this president will make causing more uncertainty.

I’m not surprised that the president is doing this because I’m not surprised at anything that the president may do or say. I have warned America from the beginning that this president is not worthy, he cannot be trusted, he’s a liar, He’s despicable. Any time he steps in, opens his mouth, tries to interfere with one of our agencies I’m not shocked but the American people continue to be shocked. The Republicans are intimidated and not standing by their responsibility for oversight and dealing with this president. So, yes, no, Powell does not work for him. The attorney general should not work for him, but he thinks that they all should be working for him and not for the American people. We need to get rid of this president.

Ocasio-Cortez is everything that’s wrong with America.

She knows little of which she speaks.

Even worse, she has loyal followers who bend their ear to every word she says (or writes).

AOC is now comparing President Trump to a member of the Ku Klux Klan

This is called pandering.

AOC can do it with the best of them.

Shame.

There are some things a person just never expects to see.

One of those things would be far-left Whoopi Goldberg telling even further left Ocasio-Cortez to shut up for being such a loudmouth.

But it happened.

WATCH (start at 2:20)…

WOW.

It seems like the other ladies of “The View” agreed with Whoopi, which is even weirder.

Democrat Senator Claire McCaskill lost her race to Republican Josh Hawley.

She didn’t leave quietly, though.

McCaskill went after “what’s her name” Ocasio-Cortez like she got paid to do it.

It’s pretty brutal.

From Daily Wire:

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) warned against nominating “far-left” Democrats like socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez this week, saying that candidates like her “have not been in a place where the math is unforgiving to” their political views.

McCaskill made the remarks while appearing on a Thursday podcast with The New York Times where she blamed her loss on “irritating” pro-abortion activists and also warned against nominating far-left Democrats.

McCaskill: “What’s her name, [the one] everybody’s fascinated with from New York? I hope she listens to people who defeated Republicans because it’s the people who defeated Republicans in this election that we need to be emulating. Not the people who defeated Democrats in primaries” in deep blue districts.

They’re so passionate about their beliefs they feel if everyone would just be more pure, more people would come to the cause, and many of them have not been in a place where the math is unforgiving to that concept. And so, I just want to make sure that we don’t make a mistake and go so far to the left in nominating a candidate that we lose all those white working-class voters that have been a huge part of our party decades ago.

We have an opportunity in 2020 as long as we don’t go so far-left off the side of the earth that we alienate those people that, when they hear the word ‘free college,’ they hear that phrase, they think, ‘Oh, look, they’re giving away something to other people besides me again. I had to earn mine. Why aren’t they having to earn theirs?’ That thing is real. Sometimes, going too far, we turn off people and make election victories impossible.

Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld has some thoughts on Alexandria:

This is what happens when you run on slogans and know nothing about actual policy or how things work.

Check out AOC’s tweet on “death panels”…

Then see how quickly she gets destroyed…

At a press conference for Sunshine Movement, which is a far-left group, Alexandria compared her midterm election victory to the moon landing and the civil rights movement.

There are no words to explain this kind of ignorance.

From Daily Wire:

Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez rambled on Friday that her election victory was on par with the United States landing on the moon, something that she falsely thinks was a political victory for the Democrats over the Republicans.

AOC: “This is not just about a clean new deal. This is about a new deal for the United States of America.

Because in every moment when our country has reached the depths of darkness, in every moment when we were at the brink, at the cusp of an abyss and we did not know if we would be capable of saving ourselves, we have. We’ve done it. We’ve dug deep and we’ve done what we thought was impossible.

AOC needs everyone to know that “people are going to die” if something isn’t done about climate change:

Maybe Alexandria didn’t get the message that large outfits often falsify their data to make it seem as if things are worse than they are?

Ugh.

It’s going to be a long two years covering this one.

Save conservative media!

Hillary Clinton Says Disgraced Movie Mogul Harvey Weinstein ‘Contributed To Every Democrat’s Campaign’

Published

on

Former Secretary of State and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton attempted to downplay the financial contributions disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein made to her political campaigns, stating that he contributed to every Democrat’s campaign. This, ladies and gentlemen, is “crooked Hillary” at her finest. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “He contributed to every Democrat’s campaign,” Clinton said when asked about the disgraced movie mogul’s contributions at the Berlin International Film Festival, where she was attending a screening of her new Hulu documentary. “He contributed to Barack Obama’s campaign, and John Kerry’s campaign and Al Gore’s campaign and everybody’s campaign.” “I don’t know whether that should chill anyone else from contributing to political campaigns, but it certainly should end the kind of behavior that he was just convicted for,” Clinton added. Weinstein, 67, was convicted Monday of first-degree sexual assault and third-degree rape in New York City. He faces a possible sentence of between five and 25 years. Weinstein also faces charges in Los Angeles after he was indicted in January, just after the first trial got underway. In that case, he is accused of raping one woman and sexually assaulting another in back-to-back nights during the week of the Oscar Awards in 2013. So how much money did Hillary get from Weinstein while running for Senate and the presidency? According to the Federal Election Commission data, about $55,000. Weinstein was also a huge contributor to Barack Obama’s presidential campaigns, donating around $72,000. Clinton recently defended the rather well-documented friendship she’s had with Weinsten, saying earlier this year that there was no way she could’ve known about the movie mogul’s predatory impulses and actions. “How could we have known? He raised money for me, for the Obamas, for Democrats in general. And that at the time was something that…

He’s only off by 148.5 million, so…

You’re probably reading that headline and saying to yourself, Nah, Joe didn’t say 150 million people were killed by guns since 2007. There’s no way even he would say something that ridiculous! Well, my friends, you’d be wrong. According to the former 2020 Democrat frontrunner and soon-to-be three-time failed presidential candidate Joe Biden, his statement is accurate. 150 million people, all dead – from guns, since 2017. Just…I mean…Joe…WHAT IS THE DEAL, BRO!? The guy also said he’s coming after gun manufacturers if he’s elected. So, you’re safe, gun manufacturers.

Still a lot, obviously, but not even sorta kinda close to 150 million. From NBC News: More Americans have died from gunshots in the last 50 years than in all of the wars in American history. Since 1968, more than 1.5 million Americans have died in gun-related incidents, according to data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. By comparison, approximately 1.2 million service members have been killed in every war in U.S. history, according to estimates from the Department of Veterans Affairs and iCasualties.org, a website that maintains an ongoing database of casualties from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
