AOC Sends Racially Charged Tweet on Her ‘Black Staff’ — MSM Could Not Care Less

Just another day in the life of Ocasio-Cortez!

It’s just another day for freshman Democrat Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY).

She can say whatever she wants about anything, including race, and the mainstream media could not care less.

Here’s just the latest example…

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) faced backlash on social media for the second day in a row over racially charged remarks she made.

Ocasio-Cortez’s remarks started on Friday when she defended Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s (D-MI) false insinuation at a House Oversight Committee hearing that Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) was a racist for bringing a black Trump official to the hearing to combat the notion that President Donald Trump was a racist.

“Just because someone has a person of color, a black person, working for them does not mean they aren’t racist and … the fact someone would actually use a prop, a black woman in this chamber, in this committee is alone racist in itself,” Tlaib said, clearly talking about Meadows.

AOC’s words:

We have Black staff. We don’t parade them around to show the world how diverse our team is, and use that as some kind of evidence of the absence of racism. That’s what tokenism is.

A member of Hillary Clinton’s communications team decided to weigh-in on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal,” which would cost taxpayers tens of trillions.

AOC, herself, then gave her two cents.

Finally, pro-Trump actor James Woods dropped the hammer.

Charlotte Clymer wrote:

It’s really this simple: if you’ve got a better than what @AOC is offering to combat climate change, please show it. If you’re a Member of Congress who can effectively address climate change better than the #GreenNewDeal, show your receipts. Make an effort.

Ocasio-Cortez’s response to Clymer:

Yup. If you don’t like the #GreenNewDeal, then come up with your own ambitious, on-scale proposal to address the global climate crisis.

Until then, we’re in charge – and you’re just shouting from the cheap seats.

Enter James Woods, who absolutely ripped “arrogant idiot” AOC a new one:

So, you may have missed this, but the way it works in America is YOU work for US. The last time somebody told Americans to sit down and shut up was 1776. If you ever learn to read, look it up. You are not only a idiot, you’re an arrogant idiot, and there is nothing more dangerous

Woods for the win?

He just gave Alexandria a history lesson she’s not likely to forget anytime soon.

Politicians on both sides of the aisle are often caught spouting falsehoods. Ocasio-Cortez is by far and away one of the worst and it’s kind of not even close.

From Daily Wire:

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) lied about her “Green New Deal” on Thursday, saying that it is not a “massive government takeover” hours after admitting the exact opposite.

AOC: “One way that the Right does try to mischaracterize what we’re doing as though it’s like some kind of massive government takeover. Uh, obviously what we’re trying to do is, well obviously it’s not that because what we’re trying to do is release the investments from the federal government to mobilize those resources across the country.

The funny thing is that Ocasio-Cortez said the exact opposite earlier in the day.

Host Steve Inskeep: “As you know, congresswoman, one reason that people who are politically conservative are skeptical of efforts to combat climate change is that it sounds to them like it requires massive government intervention which they just don’t like. Are you prepared to put on the table that yes, they’re actually right, what this requires is massive government intervention?

AOC: “It does. It does. Yeah, I have no problem saying that.

WATCH:

So, which is it?

US Embassy in Iraq Nearly Leveled by Rocket as Iran Tensions Soar

Mike Pompeo’s recent warning to US staff in the region is looking more prophetic by the minute.

Last week’s warning to US workers in Iraq could not have come a moment too soon, apparently. Due to increasingly hostile actions by the government of Iran, US officials last week demanded that non-essential American personnel leave the country of Iraq for feat that the regime in Tehran would soon launch a series of attacks.  As it turns out, this was far more prophetic than anyone could have imagined because, just days later, a rocket has nearly leveled the US Embassy in Baghdad. A rocket was fired into the Iraqi capital Baghdad’s heavily fortified Green Zone, which houses government buildings and diplomatic missions, on Sunday night, falling near the U.S. Embassy but causing no casualties, the Iraqi military said. The attack came two weeks after U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned Iraqi leaders during a surprise visit to Baghdad that if they failed to keep in check Iran-backed militias, which are expanding their power in Iraq and now form part of its security apparatus, the United States would respond with force. His visit came after U.S. intelligence showed Iran-backed Shi’ite militias positioning rockets near bases housing U.S. forces, according to two Iraqi security sources. There have been no claims of responsibility as of yet for the attack. Saudi Arabian officials have linked two recent attacks on their oil industry to Iran; one aerial drone attack on an oil pipeline, and a sophisticated underwater attack using makeshift torpedoes that damaged four ships. US President Donald Trump is hoping to stay out of conflict with Iran, but has warned that any action taken by the US will be swift and stern.

Adam Schiff Predictably Pounces on Republican’s Call for Impeachment

While the tide may be turning in Congress, Nancy Pelosi continues to stonewall her own constituents.

Adam Schiff

As the dysfunction in DC reaches dire new heights, some who were previously loyal to President Trump have taken a turn. On the left, the idea of impeachment has been around since before Donald Trump even took office.  The simple fact that he was running for President was enough to have democrats working toward some sort of “back up plan” to oust him should he win. And when he did, the entirety of the left side of the aisle went up in flames. Now after two years of Trump in the Oval Office, the democrats are still trying to remove him, or nullify the results of the 2016 election by casting fears of Russian meddling into the public realm. One of the loudest voices in this anti-Presidential fracas has been Adam Schiff, who today latched onto a surprising republican call for impeachment. Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said his House of Representatives colleague Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) declaring President Donald Trump had engaged in “impeachable conduct” was courageous. Schiff said, “What the speaker has referred to and I have as well is can impeachment be successful in the Senate? We see no signs of that yet. I respect what Justin Amash is doing has said he showed more courage than any other Republican in the House or Senate. But what may be pushing us in the direction of impeachment in any event has less to do with Justin Amash but more the administration is engaging in a maximum obstructionism campaign.” Amash became the first prominent republican to publicly state his belief that Donald Trump has engaged in “impeachable” offenses. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has rebuked any and all talk of impeachment, furthering infuriating an already hysterical democratic base.
