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.

In Georgia, Pence Makes Ugly Dig Directed at Trump

It’s safe to say these two won’t be on the 2024 ticket together.

Tonight, the race for the Georgia governor’s office will continue, as incumbent Republican Brian Kemp faces primary challenger and fellow Republican David Perdue, in a contest with implications far beyond the Peach State.

The race has been billed as a bit of a 2024 preview, if only vicariously, as former President Donald Trump has endorsed Perdue while former Vice President Mike Pence has endorsed Kemp.

As the primary election neared, Pence wasn’t shy about taking some not-so-subtle shots at the former Commander in Chief, either.

On the eve of Georgia’s primary election, former Vice President Mike Pence had a forward-looking message of support for renominating Republican Gov. Brian Kemp.

“When you say yes to Governor Brian Kemp tomorrow, you will send a deafening message all across America that the Republican Party is the party of the future,” said Pence, speaking to a crowd of a few hundred in an airport hangar north of Atlanta on Monday.

Pence’s appearance was an implicit rebuke of former running mate Donald Trump, who has endorsed Kemp’s primary opponent, David Perdue. Pence did not make a direct mention of the former President nor respond to the relentless attacks Trump has leveled against Kemp. But his appearance at the rally the day before the election spoke volumes.

And then:

“When Brian Kemp called me and asked me to come out here and be with all of you, I said yes in a heartbeat,” Pence said.

Pence has been a bit coy, (and rather vague), about his potential plans for a 2024 campaign, and Trump has been quite vocal about the possibility of running against his former veep.

USA Begins Planning to Send Troops to Kyiv

Interesting…

Published

For weeks now, the world has been forced to sit back and watch the atrocities occurring in Ukraine with little to no recourse.  This was due largely to Vladimir Putin’s continued threats of a nuclear strike against anyone who might decide to interfere directly, including the United States, NATO, or other western powers.

Furthermore, US President Joe Biden has been clear:  There is no desire to have American troops squaring off with Russians directly, at the risk of conjuring World War III.

Yet still it appears as though some US troops will be making the journey to Ukraine…at least in a very limited manner.

Plans to send U.S. forces back into Ukraine to guard the recently reopened American Embassy in Kyiv are “underway at a relatively low level,” Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said Monday.

The Wall Street Journal reported Sunday that officials are mulling plans to send special forces to Kyiv to guard the U.S. Embassy. The effort is a delicate one, as it requires balancing the safety of American diplomats while avoiding what Russia could see as an escalation.

“Some of the things that may have been out there in the media, those are planning efforts that are underway at a relatively low level,” Milley told reporters at the Pentagon, seeming to refer to the Journal’s report.

There was no definitive timeline for the move.

Such plans “have not yet made it to [Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin] or myself for that matter, for refinement of courses of action and what’s needed,” he noted.

Milley would go on to suggest that any such move would require the approval of the President himself.
