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!

Democrat Senators Refuse To Comment On Removal Of George Washington Statues

Published

on

The Daily Caller recently reached out to the offices of every single Democratic senator to find out what they thought of the notion of tearing down George Washington statues, a move that would be consistent with their support of the removal of other works of art and monuments that Black Lives Matter and other radical leftists claim offend someone. Every single one of them refused to comment. That’s telling, isn’t it? Check out more of the details from The Washington Examiner: One senator, Tammy Duckworth from Illinois, recently said she supports a conversation on removing such statues. “He should be talking about what we’re going to do to overcome this pandemic,” Duckworth said of President Trump during a CNN interview earlier in July. “What are we going to do to push Russia back? Instead, he had no time for that. He spent all his time talking about dead traitors.” She added during the interview, “I think we should listen to the argument there. But remember that the president at Mount Rushmore was standing on ground that was stolen from Native Americans who had actually been given that land during a treaty.” What this really comes down to is the fact the left wants to sanitize the history of the United States and supplant the truth with their own revisionist version of events in order to help support their own progressive principles to further brainwash future generations of young people into being loyal to the state and the values it espouses. The reality is, we need to leave these monuments alone, even if they are offensive. Why? Because, for starters, people are more complex than all evil and all good. At least most people. These monuments are a testament to the history of our nation. They remind us of who we…

Failed Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton Says ‘We Must Be Ready’ For Possibility Trump Will Refuse To Leave Office

Published

on

Twice failed Democratic presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton continues to demonstrate that she’s sour over the major defeat she suffered at the hands of Donald Trump by spouting off all sorts of nonsense conspiracy theories about the president not leaving office if he loses the election this year. Obviously, this is nothing more than an attempt to fear monger and try making liberals shake in their boots and show up en masse to defeat the president in November. The more scared the left keeps people, the more they will refuse to see the truth behind what is happening in our country, believing that the only way to stay safe from the big, bad president is through liberal policies. Clinton conducted an interview with Trevor Noah from The Daily Show where she discussed mail-in ballots and potential voter suppression. Here’s more detail from The Washington Examiner: Noah asked Clinton if there was a scenario she could envision in which the president loses the election but argues that a couple instances of voter fraud are enough to invalidate of the election results. “Well, I think it is a fair point to raise as to whether or not, if he loses, he’s going to go quietly or not. And we have to be ready for that. But there have been so many academic studies and other analyses, which point out that it’s just an inaccurate, fraudulent claim,” she said in reference to Republican claims about the potential for widespread voter fraud via mail-in ballots. Voting by mail, a longstanding practice, has been fiercely debated as more election officials have expanded access to absentee voting during the coronavirus pandemic. https://youtu.be/jwhCtkssg00 “Look, I want a fair election. If people get to vote and they, for whatever reason, vote for Donald Trump,…
