AOC Caught In Blatant Lie About Trump Admin Cutting 700,000 People From Food Stamps

Someone’s pants are on fire!

There are lies and then there are damned lies. Freshman lawmaker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) doesn’t know the difference between the two – if you can believe that!

It’s as if AOC rolled out of bed one morning and said, I’m running for Congress and I don’t care if I know what I’m talking about or not! And she would have been right, considering she won her initial election.

Check out the incredibly clueless Democrat Socialist thinking she knows what she’s talking about when it comes to food stamps. Clearly, she has no idea what is going on…

My family relied on food stamps (EBT) when my dad died at 48.

I was a student. If this happened then, we might’ve just starved.

Now, many people will.

It’s shameful how the GOP works overtime to create freebies for the rich while dissolving lifelines of those who need it most.

Here’s the rub…

Another viral-but-misleading tweet from AOC. The work requirement rule doesn’t affect parents, which she would have known had she read the story: “The USDA rule change affects people between the ages of 18 and 49 who are childless and not disabled.”

More reactions:

The rule applies to able-bodied adults between the ages of 18 and 49 who do not have dependents.

The rule wouldn’t apply to parents with minor children, the elderly, or disabled people.

The rule ignores the reality of American life.

Plenty of parents who support can’t claim “adult” (18+) children as dependents.

Getting disability status is notoriously difficult &food is an immediate need. What if someone has an undiagnosed mental issue, like severe depression?

Gonna put on my Ryan Conservative hat for one second (just one second, promise), but damn, this is what progressives want: permanent childhood.

Quote-unquote adult 18+ children. My God.

All right, back to Big Government Caudilloism Conservatism now.

And it does not consider those of us who are caring for aging or disabled parents…A 24/7 job.

Well, that and the requirements for being exempted for the work requirement don’t look that onerous, at least on paper: “incapacity to work” is based on a doctor’s note, not SSI/Soc Sec eligibility, inability by reason of being a caregiver is for any child under 6, not just —–

your own kid, or caring for an adult who is incapacitated more than 20 hours per week, based on a self-report rather than some extensive proof, etc.

Nothing is stopping you or others from helping these ppl financially or physically. Why does the funding need to go thru the gov first if you don’t trust their standards of criteria?

These exclusionary “rules” sound great to anyone who hasn’t dealt with the actual lived experience. In truth it means paperwork, waiting, & absurdist bureaucracy.

Let’s talk about the example of severe depression, which is an elevated risk for people in economic hardship.

Save conservative media!

Elizabeth Warren Not Interested In Getting Involved In Sanders-Clinton Feud, Says ‘I’m Not Going There’

Published

on

Sen. Elizabeth Warren has fallen behind both Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders in the polls, which is not a great sign this close to the Iowa caucuses, but at the end of the day, it’s still anyone’s game. With the primary so close, many in the Democratic Party have turned on each other and gone after one another in verbal jousting and mudslinging attacks, chief among them Warren and Sanders, with Warren accusing Sanders of saying he didn’t believe a woman could be president. While the smoke is just starting to clear on that a bit, the feud between Bernie and former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is still alive, and Warren is refusing to get involved in the fray. Check out the details from The Washington Examiner: Elizabeth Warren tried to skirt questions about Hillary Clinton’s claim “nobody likes” her rival for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, Bernie Sanders. “I’m not going there,” the Massachusetts senator, 70, told CBS Friday morning. Clinton, 72, in an interview published this week by the Hollywood Reporter, blasted the Vermont senator, her former 2016 Democratic primary opponent, as “a career politician,” saying she felt “so bad” that “people got sucked into” him. “He was in Congress for years. He had one senator support him. Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done,” the former secretary of state told the outlet. “Bernie and I have worked together for a very long time, and we continue to do so. I’ve said all I’m going to say about this,” Warren said before turning to the topic of impeachment. Warren has obviously realized that her attacks against Bernie backfired on her in a big way so now she’s trying to avoid getting pulled into another battle that could potentially hurt her chances…

Brand New Poll Reveals That A Plurality Of Americans On Board With Soleimani Killing

Published

on

Liberals all across the country displayed their true colors by coming out in support of a radical Islamic terrorist, one who killed an untold number of American soldiers and horribly oppressed his own people in Iran after President Trump ordered the drone strike that killed Gen. Qassem Soleimani. These folks despise the president so much that they took the side of a terrorist, strangely seeming to believe that their opinions on this would reflect the feelings of most Americans. A new poll proves that is totally not the case at all. In fact, a plurality of Americans support the president’s decision to take out Soleimani. Here’s more on the poll from The Washington Examiner: The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll released Friday found 41% of Americans approved of Trump authorizing Soleimani’s death while 30% of Americans opposed the authorization. While more Americans supported the killing than opposed it, 59% of Americans disapproved of Trump’s handling of foreign policy overall. The poll comes three weeks after the United States killed the Iranian terrorist leader. The strike came in response to Iranian-backed militias attacking the U.S. Embassy in Iraq. Trump described the killing as a “no bullshit” mission. Iran responded by firing over a dozen missiles at bases housing U.S. troops. The Iranian strikes injured 11 Americans but resulted in no deaths. Once again, this poll demonstrates that a lot of individuals in the Democratic Party are on the wrong side of an issue, led there by their own desire to see President Trump impeached and removed from office. In short, they have become so used to hating the president and attacking him over every move he makes that it has become their default reaction, even when he does something good, to criticize him and oppose him. Will this…
