AOC UNLEASHED: Mocks Senior Dems as Party Looks for Leash

AOC is back in the news, but this time it’s the democrats who are her nemesis.

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez

Not a day goes by in 2019 that we don’t find the name Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez fluttering across our earholes.

The freshmen Representative from New York has made enormous waves, even in the ever-radicalized democratic party, for her insistence on pushing the boundaries of established protocol.

Outside of the democratic party, however, the impressionable young congresswoman has been raising eyebrows with her unprecedentedly socialist views on how government should work.

AOC, as the media has come to call her, is now pushing a new angle:  Openly mocking democratic leaders on the basis of their age.

Freshman lawmaker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez dropped a hammer on Joe Lieberman on Thursday, after the onetime Democratic vice presidential candidate said he feared her brand of high-tax socialism could doom the party’s chances for long-term dominance in Congress.

‘I certainly hope she’s not the future and I don’t believe she is,’ Lieberman said in a Fox Business Network interview. He retired in 2013 after serving 24 years in the U.S. Senate.

The 29-year-old Ocasio-Cortez retweeted the 76-year-old’s sentiment with a four-word rejoinder: ‘New party, who dis?’

‘Who dis?’ is a common response to a text message from an unknown number. Among millennials in the smartphone generation, the phrase has morphed into a snarky tool for rejecting someone by framing their approach as a mistake.

The Democrats are hoping to find a way to rein her in.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is already making enemies in the House Democratic Caucus — and some of its members are mounting an operation to bring the anti-establishment, democratic socialist with 2.2 million Twitter followers into the fold.

The effort, described by nearly 20 lawmakers and aides, is part carrot, part stick: Some lawmakers with ties to Ocasio-Cortez are hoping to coax her into using her star power to unite Democrats and turn her fire on Republicans. Others simultaneously warn Ocasio-Cortez is destined for a lonely, ineffectual career in Congress if she continues to treat her own party as the enemy.

“I’m sure Ms. Cortez means well, but there’s almost an outstanding rule: Don’t attack your own people,” said Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.). “We just don’t need sniping in our Democratic Caucus.”

For now, Cortez has been little more than a humorous distraction, providing plenty of gaffes and laughs.

But with a new, democraticall- controlled congress just now gearing up in earnest, her affable misgivings could soon become unfortunate legislative follies.

AOC Fails to Mention Amazon Only Bringing 1,500 Jobs Instead of 25,000 After She Interfered

23,500 less jobs. Not good.

It might be time to raise the age limit for members of Congress. However old AOC is is clearly too young. She’s far too naive to be in such a position of power. And worse yet, you just know she’ll run for president in 2024. That’s a devastatingly scary thought. After working to undermine Amazon’s deal to open a headquarters in her state, which would’ve brought with it billions for the local economy and 25,000 jobs, AOC celebrated and Amazon moved on. On Saturday, the Jeff Bezos-led company announced it would open a much, much smaller operation in Manhattan, employing only 1,500 people. In case AOC isn’t sure, that’s a lose of 23,500 potential jobs. She doesn’t care, though. She thinks she won the argument. Naturally, she’s wrong. Go figure. Me waiting on the haters to apologize after we were proven right on Amazon and saved the public billions https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1203093051859750912?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1203093051859750912&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Focasio-cortez-declares-victory-after-amazon-announces-offices-in-nyc-but-theres-a-yuge-problem-with-her-story%2F From Daily Mail: However, the congresswoman’s critics were quick to point out that Amazon’s new plans differ significantly from the cancelled HQ2. ‘Another day, another viral misleading tweet from AOC. Amazon is leasing office space in Manhattan for 1,500 employees, which is 6% of the 25,000 jobs its HQ2 in Queens (her district) was supposed to add,’ tweeted Peter J. Hasson, a reporter for the Daily Caller. ‘Amazon is now going to create just 6% of the jobs they would’ve before AOC killed their deal with NYC (1,500 vs 25,000), but by all means take a victory lap for the 23,500 jobs that are never coming to NYC thanks to AOC,’ tweeted Josh Jordan, and marketing-research consultant in Chicago. While we’re here, let’s clear up some GOP disinfo: – “It’s 1500 jobs vs 25,000”: The 25,000 jobs figure was a 10-20 year fantasy # from Amazon, not a promise or…

Democrat Rep. Says Trump Must Be Impeached In Order to ‘Deal With Slavery’ [Watch]

This is some kind of awful, right here…

Texas Rep. Al Green has been calling for President Trump’s impeachment more often than quite possibly any other Democrat in Congress. The guy absolutely loathes the duly-elected leader simply because…his policies are working? His guy didn’t win in 2016? He needs the attention? Who knows? There isn’t a legitimate answer to the question. The only thing Dems understand is that they dislike 45’s tweets so they want him out of office. How mature. Check out Green’s appearance on MSNBC where he finds the nerve to conflate Trump with “slavery,” while ignorantly ignoring that black unemployment is at record low levels in America. From Daily Wire: Green, who has previously stated that Trump must be impeachment or else “he will get reelected,” said this week that there is “no limit” to the number of times that Democrats can try to impeach the president. WATCH: Democrat Rep. Al Green says the impeachment of @realDonaldTrump is needed “to deal with slavery.” MSNBC’s Alex Witt “mmhhhmms” throughout the clip in agreement. https://twitter.com/SteveGuest/status/1203420159639277573?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1203420159639277573&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fdemocrat-congressman-al-green-trump-must-be-impeached-to-deal-with-slavery Let them keep thinking Trump should be impeached. Let’s see how that plays out for them. As we’ve seen so far, it’s not going well. In fact, it’s going very poorly. Here’s the latest regarding impeachment support, via Washington Examiner: The Emerson poll released Thursday found support for impeachment has dropped from 48% to 43% since October, while opposition to impeachment has risen from 44% to 45%. Independents are key in the shift, with 49% opposing impeachment and only 34% supporting impeachment. In October, 48% of independents supported impeachment and 39% opposed. From Daily Wire: Kurt Volker, the former U.S. special envoy to Ukraine, and Tim Morrison, a top National Security Council official that was on President Donald Trump’s Ukraine phone call, both confirmed during their testimonies on Tuesday that there was…
