Ummm…how so?

You know in the Constitution where the Founders said everyone has the right to healthcare and housing?

Oh. Did you not catch that part?

AOC and her ilk continue to do everything in their power to re-write the greatest single document in the history of any nation.

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) demanded at a town hall event in the Bronx on Thursday that everybody be given “access” to guaranteed homes before anyone is allowed the “privilege to earn a profit.”

AOC said, “We have to make sure that housing is being legislated as a human right. What does that mean? What it means is that our access and our ability and our guarantee to having a home comes before someone else’s privilege to earn a profit.

She added, “I want to make sure that we connect some dots because when we introduced the Green New Deal we were saying what is a girl from the Bronx doing and talked about environmentalism that doesn’t make any sense, right? Wrong. Because one of the big things that we talked about was that we need to clean our buildings. … When we talk about our right to a clean home, when we talk about retrofitting buildings, what we’re talking about is cleaning our air and cleaning our water because when we talk about what housing as a right means, it doesn’t mean that you have a right to four crumbling walls and a dirty floor.

Ocasio-Cortez didn’t seem happy or sad after learning that a billionaire is going to pay off student debt for the entire 2019 graduating class of Morehouse College.

But conservatives on Twitter let her know what she missed.

Here’s her tweet:

Every Morehouse Class of 2019 student is getting their student debt load paid off by their commencement speaker.

This could be the start of what’s known in Econ as a ‘natural experiment.’ Follow these students & compare their life choices w their peers over the next 10-15 years.

Reactions:

This amazing act of kindness brought to you by a billionaire – and the capitalist system that made his billions possible.

This is how it’s supposed to work – personal and or private charity. It is not the government’s job to pay off debt for college students.

Period the end. 🙂

Good for the students but Robert F. Smith didn’t make his wealth in a #socialist society. He worked at Goldman Sachs, left and built Vista Equity Partners that is worth over $4 billion and manages an estimated $30 billion. That’s called #capitalism.

Sure is nice that a billionaire could pay that as a gift to these students.

Glad no one called them all evil or anything.

People can give things to each other voluntarily? Who knew?

Yay for capitalism!

Save conservative media!

Revealed: House Ethics Committee to Investigate Rashida Tlaib for Misusing Campaign Funds

It’s just Democrat after Democrat…

Freshman Democrat Socialist Rashida Tlaib (MI) could potentially be in big trouble. Even if she’s guilty, though, liberals will likely only give her a slap on the wrist and claim she’s the victim of a right-wing smear campaign. Until then, the openly anti-Semitic Muslim continues giving the American people plenty to think about. It’s just too bad the mainstream media will continue to give her a pass. From Fox News: The House Ethics Committee on Thursday released a trove of striking internal campaign communications sent in 2018 by Michigan Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib, in which Tlaib urgently requested money from her congressional campaign to defray personal expenses — and, a government watchdog said, possibly violated federal law in the process. The document dump was related to the committee’s ongoing ethics probe into Tlaib, which the panel said on Thursday would be “expanded” based on a referral from the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE). Texts and emails released by the Ethics Committee show Tlaib frantically contacting members of her staff for financial help.

She noted, “There’s always kind of a calming feeling I tell folks when I think of the Holocaust, and the tragedy of the Holocaust, and the fact that it was my ancestors — Palestinians — who lost their land and some lost their lives, their livelihood, their human dignity, their existence in many ways, have been wiped out, and some people’s passports.…

Bill Clinton’s Advice to Trump: Ignore Impeachment, Pass Gun Control As Soon As Possible

Spoiler alert: it’s bad advice…

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) said last night what all conservatives were thinking from the start: Democrats are looking to impeach President Trump because they know they can’t win in 2020. They are looking for any excuse to get him out of office, now that Russia and other hoaxes have failed. It’s truly stunning to witness how far the Democrat Party is willing to go to sabotage a duly-elected president in a time when unemployment is at an all-time low and the economy is thriving. Then again, this party is comprised of people who believe it’s acceptable, even cool, to murder a baby. Here’s impeached President Bill Clinton’s advice for Donald Trump. Spoiler alert: it’s not good advice. From Breitbart: On Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s special coverage of the shooting at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita, CA, former President Bill Clinton told President Donald Trump to ignore impeachment and pass gun control. Commenting on when the Republican-controlled House impeached him in 1998, Clinton said, “Look at how much we got done in 1998 and 1999 and even in ‘97. We had very productive actions in all three years. The only really tough year we had after the Republicans won the Congress, was ‘95 to the beginning of ‘96—when they shut the government down twice. Once the public rendered judgment on what they thought should be done, I kept working with them. That’s just an excuse.” Monica’s boyfriend added, “My message would be, look, you got hired to do a job. Every day’s an opportunity to make something good happen. And I would say, I’ve got lawyers and staff people handling this impeachment inquiry, and they should just have at it. Meanwhile, I’m going to work for the American people. That’s what I would do.” Hillary Clinton probably won’t run for…
