Amazon Sucker Punches AOC on Their Way Out of NYC

was sure to mention the freshman Congresswoman by name.

AOC

As billionaire Jeff Bezos is divorcing his wife and his plans for an Amazon.com headquarters in New York City nearly simultaneously, it would be expected that the corporate mood within his gargantuan retail company would be a bit tense.

All of this hullabaloo comes at a time of great uncertainty in the nation as well, with a National Emergency now declared, and Robert Mueller still sniffing around the garbage of Alex Jones’ former pals looking of clues in his so-called “witch hunt”.

Amazon may be a company too large to fail, but their enormous scope also creates a bit of vulnerability for them as well.  Every shift in the market, every turn on the economy rattles them to the tune of millions of dollars.

That’s why, in the midst of a liberal rise in socialism, (and antisemitism for that matter), Amazon has made it very clear why New York City will no longer be their new home.

The fallout from Amazon’s decision to walk away from its planned headquarters in New York is ratcheting up after a company spokesman publicly blasted Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other lawmakers, saying they had made it a hostile environment to do business.

“If you talk to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, it’s ‘Never Amazon,'” Jodi Seth, the head of policy communications for Amazon, told NBC News in an interview on Thursday. “If you talk to [New York City Councilman Jimmy] Van Bramer, it’s unions.”

Oh, but there’s more.

Seth added that “it wasn’t any one incident” that drove the Seattle-based tech giant to its decision, adding that the virulent political discourse that occurred over the past three months was what led to the decision. “It was that the environment over the course of the past three months had not got any better. There were some local and state elected officials who refused to meet with Amazon and criticized us day in and day out about the plan,” she said in the interview.

Amazon has said that they have no plans to immediately relocate the proposed NYC facility to another locale.

Trump Lays The Smack Down On Iran, Orders New Sanctions In Light Of Saudi Oil Attacks

This is what true leadership looks like.

Published

on

President Trump is once again proving he’s a strong leader when it comes to America’s presence on the geopolitical stage, having ordered the Treasury Department to “substantially increase” sanctions on the Middle East country of Iran in the wake of drone attacks on two oil facilities in Saudi Arabia. This, ladies and gentlemen, was the kind of leadership that was sorely lacking during the Obama years. If he were still president, he’d probably ship them some more cash flow and beg for their forgiveness for some fake imaginary slight he thinks we committed to facilitate such action. via The Daily Wire: “I have just instructed the Secretary of the Treasury to substantially increase Sanctions on the country of Iran!” Trump wrote on Twitter. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1174305447513186304 It was not immediately clear exactly what he instructed Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin to do. The U.S. has long had punitive sanctions in place against Iran. Trump’s move comes after drone strikes on Saturday that severely damaged a crude-processing plant and oil field in Saudi Arabia, which is the largest in the world. The U.S. and the Saudis have accused Iran of perpetrating the attacks. The drone strikes prompted an immediate spike in crude prices, which experts said could soon raise the price of gas by 20 cents or more in the U.S. After Trump’s announcement on Wednesday, oil prices fell. Iran is once again looking to stir the pot and get some attention, though the reason why is unknown at this point. There’s no doubt the America hating nation would love to have some sort of armed conflict with our country, as they are major supporters of radical Islamic terrorism and believe that a third world war, which includes America, must happen to usher in the end times. Whether or not that’s truly their intent,…

High school has to be tough for kids these days. Well, for kids who lean conservative. For liberal kids, life is a breeze. Just slam President Trump and the Republican Party and you’re golden. Check out what recently happened in North Carolina… From Daily Wire: On Monday, cheerleaders from a North Carolina high school were put on probation for the remainder of the football season for posing with a Trump 2020 banner before a football game on August 30. The North Stanly High School cheerleading squad was placed on probation by the #NCHSAA for posing with a #Trump banner before a game. Officials say all #NC schools have a policy against displaying political signs. https://twitter.com/WCCBCharlotte/status/1173982479574851584?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1173982479574851584&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F51878%2Fhigh-school-cheerleaders-put-probation-posing-hank-berrien Here’s the photo: The photo was posted on Facebook, prompting some commenters to take issue; one wrote, “Why in the world would the school board allow this to happen. I am sad and very disappointed with NS. This is a High School football game, not a political rally. Shame on them,” as The Daily Mail noted. NCHSAA Commissioner Que Tucker told McClatchy news group that probation is not punishment, but rather, “It serves as a notice of behavior or action that is against NCHSAA Handbook Policy or contrary to expectations of sportsmanship and proper behavior,” according to the Charlotte Observer. She also said, “One of the rules we have is that every contest should be conducted in a wholesome, athletic environment. We take that to mean that it’s in an environment where good sportsmanship is shown, where people feel safe…that respect for all people participating is being shown,” according to thesnaponline.
