AOC Gets EMBARRASSING Polling News in New York

Is liberalism killing the liberals themselves? New polling data suggests that it’s possible.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Perhaps this is just a side effect of pervasive progressivism, but the left side of American politics is always looking for that shiny, new thing.

Sure, the idea that you should never ever stop changing in order to improve the world sounds industrious and studious.  In reality, however, there are limits that we must face honestly, and there are certain aspects of the world at large that maybe don’t needs all that change.

That may be a philosophical/political argument for another day, but it serves to prove a point of liberalism; it is always at odds with itself.  When nothing is good enough, and change is the only constant, you can never win.  You can only run.  And run, and run, and run.

This has led the left to turn away from conventional wisdom when it comes to electing public servants as well, with a slew of nontraditional Congresspersons making their way to Capitol Hill after the 2018 midterm elections.

And while nontraditional can help us to expand our political horizons, nontraditional can also mean inexperienced.  As in; these democrats have no political experience whatsoever, so they are nontraditional Congresspersons now.

New York looks to be coming to a similar conclusion in recent weeks on the subject of freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

President Trump is more popular than Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio in the deep blue state of New York.

Buried in a Siena College poll is the fascinating news that Trump earns 36 percent support in one of the most left-wing state in the country; which is not terribly surprising or terribly high, but it is higher than  two of the state’s most famous far-left Democrats.

Ocasio-Crazy’s state-wide approval rating currently sits at a terrible 31 percent, while de Blasio does only a little better at 34 percent.

The bartender-turned-congresswoman has been at the center of much of Capitol Hill’s recent humor, having become the butt of several jokes online often for her youth and alleged lack of intelligence.

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.
