With the democratic party coming apart at the hinges, it is no surprise that the left is latching onto whatever they can in order to disparage President Donald Trump.
Nancy Pelosi and other senior leaders within the party have attempted to quell the rising tide of impeachment among their flock, understanding more accurately the political realities of this ill-fated move than their exuberant, young colleagues.
And when it comes to young and exuberant, one name comes to mind almost immediately: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
AOC has long been an ardent figure in the “resistance”, taking every opportunity possible to demean the President. Now she’s taking another path: Promoting fake news about the President’s family.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has been caught spreading a lie about Donald Trump Jr. being part of a “criminal conspiracy.”
“ICYMI: Rep. Khanna got Cohen to testify that Don Jr. is the ‘second executive involved in criminal conspiracy,’” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted on Friday, adding that this is a “big deal.”
But all Ocasio-Cortez is doing here is spreading a lie told by the prison-bound Michael Cohen during his congressional testimony this week.
All of this nonsense surrounds the perfectly legal hush money President Trump paid to porn star Stormy Daniels. She blackmailed the president during the campaign and threatened to go public with the claim the two of them had a one night stand a dozen years ago.
Just how bad is it?
On Wednesday, Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA) asked Cohen about the money. The exchange went like this:
Mr. Khanna: The criminal charge against you then states that executive one forwarded your invoice to someone referred to as executive two, presumably Donald Trump Jr., who’s signing this check as executive two, correct?
Mr. Cohen: I believe so.
Mr. Khanna: Are you telling us, Mr. Cohen, that the president directed transactions in conspiracy with Allen Weisselberg and his son, Donald Trump Jr., as part of a civil — as part of a criminal conspiracy of financial fraud, is that your testimony today?
Mr. Cohen: Yes.
The only problem is that none of that is true, as the Wall Street Journal made clear on Wednesday:
In the afternoon session, Mr. Cohen identified the president’s son, apparently incorrectly, as an unnamed Trump Organization executive referenced in the charging documents filed against him by federal prosecutors in New York.
The executives were referenced in connection with the plan to reimburse Mr. Cohen for the payment to Stormy Daniels. In the charging document, federal prosecutors said the first executive, Mr. Weisselberg, forwarded an invoice from Mr. Cohen to the second executive, and it was approved.
The Journal has previously identified “Executive-1” as Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg. Mr. Cohen testified today that “Executive-2” in the charging document was Donald Trump Jr.
As of this writing, Ocasio-Cortez has yet to apologize for her actions.
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…
