Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is getting attention for all the wrong reasons.

She’s quick to let the nation know what she’s thinking, yet, 11 times out of 10 it’s evident she has no clue about what she speaks.

Now, AOC has a plan to change gun and immigration laws in the United States without the help of Congress.

From The Blaze:

Now, according to Politico, Ocasio-Cortez and other progressive lawmakers plan to use similar tactics to advance their anti-Second Amendment agenda and circumvent the legislative process.

Ocasio-Cortez and her allies are joining veteran Democratic lawmakers to try to “shame” America’s massive financial institutions “into taking a stand on some of the country’s most divisive issues: climate change, gun violence and immigration,” Politico reported.

[…]

The lawmakers are leveraging seats on the powerful House Financial Services Committee and a huge following on social media to confront finance industry executives and discourage them from funding oil pipelines, firearms makers and private prison companies that operate immigration detention centers. Like-minded activist groups are helping amplify the message.

Ocasio-Cortez noted, “There’s more than one way to skin a cat, and not everything has to be done through legislation explicitly. We can also use the tools that we have here to pressure change in other ways as well.

She also sent the following tweet:

The country’s largest organized labor group is telling AOC that her “Green New Deal” is bad news for America.

From Daily Wire:

The AFL-CIO, America’s largest organized-labor group, slammed socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) Green New Deal in a letter to her and Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA), stating that the far-left plan could “cause immediate harm to millions of our members and their families.”

“We welcome the call for labor rights and dialogue with labor, but the Green New Deal resolution is far too short on specific solutions that speak to the jobs of our members and the critical sections of our economy,” the letter from the AFL-CIO Energy Committee states. “It is not rooted in an engineering-based approach and makes promises that are not achievable or realistic.”

“We will not accept proposals that could cause immediate harm to millions of our members and their families,” the letter continued. “We will not stand by and allow threats to our members’ jobs and their families’ standard of living go unanswered.”

Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal,” if somehow passed by Congress, was thought to have cost U.S. taxpayers tens of trillions of dollars.

A new report suggests the real number could nearly hit $100 trillion.

That would come to, roughly, $650,000 per American household.

Ed Buck, Big Time Dem Donor, Arrested After Man Overdoes On Meth In His Home

Uh oh….somebody’s in trouble…

Published

on

Big Time Democrat donor Ed Buck has been arrested and charged with battery and maintaining a drug house after a third man overdosed on meth at his California home Tuesday evening. The man in question managed to survive the ordeal, but two other men have died under similar circumstances at Buck’s residence in West Hollywood since 2017. However, Buck was not charged in those deaths because the authorities who investigated the incidents claimed there wasn’t enough evidence to arrest him. Here’s more from TheBlaze: The charges against Buck stem from a Sept. 11 incident during which Buck allegedly administered two “dangerously large doses” of methamphetamine to an unidentified 37-year-old man. According to prosecutors, Buck tried to prevent the man from seeking help when he overdosed. The man eventually fled the apartment and called 911. The same man had previously overdosed at Buck’s home on Sept. 4. The accusations against Buck are similar to those made in the deaths of 26-year-old Gemmel Moore and 55-year-old Timothy Dean, adding to the belief that Buck preys on men who are homeless and/or addicts, luring them with promises of shelter and drugs. “From his home, in a position of power, Buck manipulates his victims into participating in his sexual fetishes,” prosecutors said, according to court documents. “These fetishes include supplying and personally administering dangerously large doses of narcotics to his victims. … Not deterred by the senseless deaths of Moore and Dean, the defendant nearly killed a third victim last week.” Prosecutors working the case are seeking $4 million bail for Buck. Buck is facing one count each of battery causing serious injury, administering methamphetamine and maintaining a drug house. If he ends up getting convicted, Buck could be spending up to five years and eight months in prison. Buck has been a pretty…

Good News: Number Of Abortions Plummets To New All-Time Low Since Roe v. Wade

This is very good news!

Published

on

The true Civil Rights issue of the day is not anything to do with color or sexual orientation, but that of the most basic, fundamental right of all: life. Ever since the decision in Roe v. Wade was made, millions of children have died before they even had a chance to experience the joys of life, a crime not only against humanity, but a heinous act of idolatry that has surely brought some of God’s judgment down on our nation. Well, it seems the pro-life crowd finally has some news to celebrate about as a new report indicates that the rate of abortions being performed has dropped significantly since 2011, hitting its lowest since Roe v. Wade in 1973. Here’s more from TheBlaze: According to the liberal Guttmacher Institute, the abortion rate has dropped from more than 1 million in 2011 to 926,000 in 2014 and 862,000 in 2017 — a 20 percent decrease during this seven-year time period. Although pro-life changes on a state level are certainly a step in the right direction, Guttmacher said it believed these new laws were not the driving force behind the drop in abortions. In their words: With the available evidence, it is impossible to pinpoint exactly which factors drove recent declines, and to what degree. However, previous Guttmacher analyses have documented that abortion restrictions, while incredibly harmful at an individual level, were not the main driver of national declines in the abortion rate in the 2008–2011 or 2011–2014 time periods. Much the same appears to hold true for the 2011–2017 timeframe….Rather, the decline in abortions appears to be part of a broader decline in pregnancies, as evidenced by fewer births over the same period. But, while the number of births overall may be dropping, the report also said that the ratio of…
