AOC Claims That She’s “The Boss”, Forgets About Being a PUBLIC SERVANT

Perhaps it is time to remind AOC that she is now a public servant, whose salary is provided by our tax dollars.

When it comes to the current societal dichotomy that we live in, no one is more disillusioned with their lot in life than the ruling class cretins of Congress.

You see, in America we have been given a gift at birth:  The unequivocal right to pursue our happiness.  We have a leg-up on the rest of the world in this regard, and there is no one in their right mind denying that.

Our cultural and societal troubles, however, are not impervious to our pursuit of happiness.  This uncomfortable reality is almost always due to the creeping sins of greed and gluttony – something embodied in our society nowhere better than in our federal government.

We have legislators writing laws that allow them to become rich, thanks to the ultra-wealthy business owners who are now allowed to stuff Congressional and executive campaign coffers with cash, unfettered by law and common sense.

Perhaps that’s why we have a freshman Congresswoman, who is an avowed democratic socialist, claiming that she is somehow “the boss”?

Friday in New York City at the “Girls Who Code” event, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) dismissed the widespread criticism of her so-called Green New Deal.

Ocasio-Cortez said, “Like I just introduced the Green New Deal two weeks ago, and it’s creating all of this conversation. Why? Because no one else has even tried. Because no one else has even tried.”

She added, “So people are like, ‘Oh it’s unrealistic. Oh it’s vague. Oh it doesn’t address this little minute thing.’ And I’m like, ‘You try. You do it. Cuz you’re not. Cuz you’re not. So, until you do it, I’m the boss.’ How about that?”

Perhaps it is time to remind AOC that she is now a public servant, whose salary is provided by our tax dollars.

And our tax dollars, just as a reminder, were also our impetus to band together and repel the greatest fighting force on the planet back in the 1770’s.

In other words, we take this “public servitude for taxes” thing fairly seriously, and we would have no qualms giving even the bossiest of bosses a trip back to the Bronx at the end of their first term.

NBC President Says Ronan Farrow’s New Book ‘Motivated Not By Pursuit Of Truth, But An Axe To Grind’

Published

on

NBC News President Noah Oppenheim is not exactly what you’d call a fan of Ronan Farrow’s new book, “Catch and Kill,” calling it an “effort to defame” the network, one which is “clearly motivated not by a pursuit of truth, but an axe to grind.” Those comments were part of an email that was sent out by Oppenheim to all of the employees of the NBC News network on Monday morning. Check out the details from Fox News: The lengthy memo obtained by Fox News rejects Farrow’s reporting that suggests NBC wasn’t truthful regarding knowledge of alleged sexual misconduct by former “Today” co-host Matt Lauer, and that the network refused to expose Harvey Weinstein as a sexual predator because he leveraged information regarding Lauer. “Now that we’ve read Farrow’s book, it’s clear – his smear rests on the allegation that NBC’s management knew about and took steps to hide Matt Lauer’s misconduct before his firing in November of 2017. Without that, he has no basis on which to rest his second conspiracy theory — that his Harvey Weinstein reporting was squashed to protect Lauer,” Oppenheim wrote to staffers. Oppenheim and NBC News chairman Andy Lack have been accused of a “massive breach of journalistic integrity” by Farrow’s former NBC News producer Rich McHugh. Farrow has long claimed that NBC News stopped his reporting in an attempt to essentially cover for Weinstein. The situation has been a public relations nightmare for NBC and Oppenheim’s memo to staffers is the latest attempt to discredit “Catch and Kill” before its Tuesday release. The highly anticipated book details Farrow’s side of the story and the Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter has already caused NBC executives to release statements and hold staffer sit-downs prior to its official release on Tuesday. Oppenheim went on to write in his…

Christopher Columbus Statue Vandalized On Columbus Day: ‘Stop Celebrating Genocide’

Published

on

Residents of the city of Providence woke up this morning to find that a statue of famous explorer Christopher Columbus had been vandalized by individuals who aren’t exactly fans of the historical figure. The statue was covered in red paint and featured a sign that read, “Stop celebrating genocide.” The word “genocide” was scrawled on the back of the statue in orange paint. Check out the details from the Washington Examiner: The vandalism marked Columbus Day, a federal holiday commemorating the explorer’s arrival in the Americas in 1492. Columbus Day has grown contentious in recent decades after activists began pushing to change the day to Indigenous Peoples Day. The Indigenous Peoples Day movement sprung up around the 1992 quincentenary celebration of Columbus’s first voyage to the New World when scholarship of the Italian explorer was growing. The movement gained traction around the idea that Columbus sparked centuries of mass killings against Native Americans. Columbus’ voyage to the New World, at that time unknown to Europe, marked the beginning of centuries of mass immigration from Europe to the Americas. The explorer completed four voyages from Europe to the New World and earned the title “Admiral of the Ocean Sea” before his death in 1506. Columbus Day, and Christopher Columbus himself have become controversial in an era where political correctness, infecting the halls of higher education, have convinced young people that Columbus is a villain rather than the hero he’s been celebrated as being for hundreds of years.
