Even as New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her “squad” go around shouting about defunding the police, they are all spending thousands on private security.

The expenditures are found in Federal Election Commission records, according to Fox News.

Per Fox:

The group of progressive, Democratic congresswomen including Reps. Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Cori Bush of Missouri, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan have voiced their support for measures to reduce police spending and allocate those funds toward other community services in an effort to curb police violence.

While Tlaib’s filings don’t show any private security spending, the other members of the “squad” do show the spending.

Meanwhile, they are all touting the defund the police ideas.

“Defunding police means defunding police,” Ocasio-Cortez said in June. “It does not mean budget tricks or funny math. It does not mean moving school police officers from the NYPD budget to the Department of Education’s budget so the exact same police remain in schools.”

Even as she attacks out police, though, she is spending thousands on private security.

Meanwhile, however, Ocasio-Cortez has paid $3,000 per month on a New York-based “security consultant” service since December, 2020, though she was spending $5,000 per month on the same security consultant beginning May 5, 2020, as The Daily Caller first reported.

Since the start of 2021, she has spent more than $25,000 on “security” costs dated Jan. 25; more than $1,500 on security detail for a February trip to Houston after a shocking winter storm devastated the area; nearly $4,000 on “security services” dated Jan. 19; and nearly $850 on “security services” dated Feb. 2.

The other members of the “squad” are the same.

Ayanna Pressley spent a $4,200 the filings note. Ilhan Omar’s numbers show $3,100 spent on security. And Cori Bush has spent $5,000 a month.

National Dissatisfaction Grows, With Stunning New Poll Numbers

This is looking downright abysmal.

Published

The tone being set by the White House right now is simply unforgivable for many Americans.  They see a lackadaisical and reluctant President who has a hard time looking interested in the job until they put him behind the wheel of some new vehicle in some new factory in some midwestern city.

Perks of the job, I suppose.

But outside some of those events, which feel a little like a monarch visiting his more industrious peasants, Joe Biden has been pretty much unwilling to take serious, meaningful action on some of the issues that face our nation, desperately, as a whole.

The polls are being to show it, as well, pushing the White House into a two-pronged fight; against the mood of the nation, and against the media that’s feeding it.

Seventy-two percent of Americans say the nation is headed in the wrong direction, a Sunday NBC News poll revealed.

As rising inflation, coronavirus chaos, supply chain woes, and foreign policy blunders have impacted Americans throughout 2021 and into 2022, 72 percent of respondents believe the country is on the wrong track, up one point from October’s NBC News poll.

Only six times have 70 percent or more of Americans believed the nation is headed in the wrong direction in consecutive surveys.

And that wasn’t all.  Oh, no.

The polling also revealed both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris’s approval ratings remain in the 30s. Biden: 39-48 percent. Harris: 32-49 percent.

According to the poll, the economy and jobs are the most important crisis facing the country (42 percent), with coronavirus (29 percent), election integrity (25 percent), and border security (22 percent) subsequently ranked.

Biden has had a year to overcome whatever messes that he may think Donald Trump left him, and it appears as though that’s about as much time as America was willing to give him to fix them.
