Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Stunning Hypocrisy When it Comes to Taxis vs. Uber

Well, that’s pretty awkward.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been a goldmine of quintessentially silly and hypocritically leftist comments, and when it comes to her recent complaint as to the financial ruin of NY cab drivers, it was no different.

It seems the young bartender-turned-congressional-candidate fits the bill for every other socialist politician in that she rants and raves about the plight of the working class while privately living a very bourgeois life.

It’s no secret that ride-share services like Uber have been threatening the unionized taxi industry for years now, and it’s something that has not escaped Ocasio-Cortez’s interest.

See?

She very opinionated…about how other people use their money for transportation.

Beyond that, it doesn’t seem like her campaign cares much at all about the struggling taxi drivers of the US.

The Daily Wire reports that “Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign spent $4,000 on 160 Uber rides in California between April and late June,” and “New York, [the campaign] has spent $2,500 on more than 90 rides with the Uber alternative, Juno.”

Well, that’s pretty awkward.

But will her superfans call her out for this? Doubtful. This woman is everything millennial socialists have been hoping to see in Washington, and as a rule, millennial socialist care little for facts or consistency.

Just virtue-signaling rhetoric about the things other people should be doing to effect change.

Trump Weighs in on Cleveland Baseball Name Change…and It’s Not Pretty

The former President was NOT happy!

Donald Trump, like a great many conservatives around the nation, isn’t all that thrilled with the way in which our national culture is changing.  Of course, this isn’t terribly surprising given that this is the nature of conserving, to allow things to remain the same or to work to bring the nation back to the way it was. So, almost predictably, Trump had plenty to say about the recent change announced by the Cleveland Indians baseball team. In a statement, Trump wrote that he is a “FORMER” baseball fan and said “a small group of people, with absolutely crazy ideas and policies, is forcing these changes to destroy our culture and heritage.” The name change came after years of protests from Native American groups and baseball fans. The former President had a far different opinion than many. Trump’s statement said he thought the name was an “honor.” However, the Lake Erie Native American Council released a statement supporting the team’s new name, WTOL reports. “We are pleased the Cleveland baseball team took a comprehensive approach to listen and learn and show it is possible to take steps toward change,” the statement read. The name change came just months after the Washington Redskins dropped their own mascot to temporarily become the “Washington Football Team”, just until a new moniker could be decided upon.

Tests Show QAnon Shaman is ‘Mentally Ill’, According to His Own Lawyer

But is this all just a part of a broader legal strategy?

From the moment that Jacob Chansley set foot on our television screens, we knew that we’d be talking about him for some time into the future. Chansley, known more commonly as the “QAnon Shaman”, was the iconic character who participated in the January 6th insurrection shirtless, with his face painted, and wearing a large fur headdress adorned with bison horns. Now, as Chansley faces charges in the storming of the Capitol, his lawyers are trying a rather tricky defense:  They’re claiming that the Shaman doesn’t possess full control over his faculties.  In an interview, defense lawyer Albert Watkins said that officials at the federal Bureau of Prisons, or BOP, have diagnosed his client Jacob Chansley with transient schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression and anxiety. The BOP’s findings, which have not yet been made public, suggest Chansley’s mental condition deteriorated due to the stress of being held in solitary confinement at a jail in Alexandria, Virginia, Watkins said. “As he spent more time in solitary confinement … the decline in his acuity was noticeable, even to an untrained eye,” Watkins said in an interview on Thursday. But is this all just legal maneuvering? Watkins said authorities will need to determine how Chansley can get access to the treatment he needs to “actively participate in his own defense.” Pleading guilty to a charge negates the need for a trial, but defendants still have to be declared mentally competent to do so. Watkins said the BOP’s evaluation of his client did not declare Chansley to be mentally incompetent, and he does not expect Chansley to be ordered to undergo what is known as competency restoration treatment. Watkins turned heads early on in his role at attorney for the Shaman, after making derogatory remarks about his own client’s mental health, using phrases that are deemed unprintable…
