AOC’s At It Again. Look What She Wants To Be Abolished Now.

More nuttiness from the Peanut Gallery.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just cannot keep herself from saying something stupid to save her life. It’s become so common place to see a news story about something ridiculous that’s come out of her mouth that it almost feels odd when there’s not a story about her somewhere.

AOC recently posted an Instagram Live Story, something she loves to do, despite how often she makes a fool of herself, mocking the U.S. voting system, calling for the abolishment of the Electoral College.

These folks absolutely want to silence anyone and everyone who doesn’t live in a major urban center, which also happen to be run mostly by liberals.

“We’re coming to you live from the Electoral College,” Ocasio-Cortez said as she recorded an empty desert highway. “Many votes here as you can see — [it’s a] very efficient way to choose leadership of the country. I mean, I can’t think of any other way, can you?”

The self-proclaimed “radical” congresswoman cited a March 2019 report from New York Magazine’s daily Intelligencer newsletter titled “Here’s Every Defense of the Electoral College — and Why They’re All Wrong.” She subsequently noted that the report is for “all the Republicans getting big mad [because] the electoral college is, in fact, a scam.”

Ocasio-Cortez touched on several intersecting points, all of which are based on the underlying idea that the American voting system is racist and therefore is discriminatory against minorities.

“The Electoral College has a racial injustice breakdown,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “Due to severe racial disparities in certain states, the electoral college effectively weights white voters over voters of color, as opposed to a ‘one person, one vote’ system where all are counted equally.”

AOC went on to say, “You may have heard this Electoral College argument the most: that families in suburbs [and] cities MUST have their vote suppressed in order to give rural votes a ‘fair shake. Could you imagine if we had this kind of democracy-altering ‘fairness’ provision for literally any other group? If we weighted, for example, Black [and] Indigenous voters more because of fairness?”

“But that ‘rural representation’ argument doesn’t hold up either, as there are rural parts in virtually every state and popular vote elections show that candidates still visit center and rural communities’ needs.”

So let’s take a look at all of the things AOC wants to toss in the garbage. There’s the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, the Department of Homeland Security, and now the Electoral College.

This last one is by far the most concerning, especially since so many people are supportive of such a measure, due to a lack of understanding of the purpose of the Electoral College.

The whole point of the Electoral College is to prevent average Americans from being ignored and giving all the power of self-government to the big cities. In our current system, every vote counts and every person gets a chance to be heard.

The call to abolish the Electoral College is really a call to silence the voice of Middle America.

Biden’s ‘Day of Prayer’ Remarks Never Mentioned God, But It DID Talk of ‘Racial Justice’ and ‘Climate Change’

Devout Catholic….

Joe Biden put out his first presidential proclamation for the National Day of Prayer, but it seems he forgot to mention anything about God, or religion… well, except for the left’s religions of climate change and racial justice. Biden issued his proclamation on Thursday to supposedly address the power of prayer. But instead of an ode to God, Christianity or even religion in general, Biden paid homage to the left’s fake religions and ignored real religions. “Throughout our history, Americans of many religions and belief systems have turned to prayer for strength, hope, and guidance,” Biden’s proclamation began. “Prayer has nourished countless souls and powered moral movements — including essential fights against racial injustice, child labor, and infringement on the rights of disabled Americans. Prayer is also a daily practice for many, whether it is to ask for help or strength, or to give thanks over blessings bestowed.” Biden added that the First Amendment protects “the rights of free speech and religious liberty,” which protects the right of all Americans to pray. “These freedoms have helped us to create and sustain a Nation of remarkable religious vitality and diversity across the generations,” the proclamation continued. Celebrating the “healing balm of prayer,” Biden added, “As we continue to confront the crises and challenges of our time — from a deadly pandemic, to the loss of lives and livelihoods in its wake, to a reckoning on racial justice, to the existential threat of climate change — Americans of faith can call upon the power of prayer to provide hope and uplift us for the work ahead.” Biden did not mention the words God, Jesus, or any specific religious concepts other than the general point of “prayer.” This is in stark contrast to every president before him. Even Barack Obama mentioned God. Check…

Biden’s Jobs Report Crashes to Worst Miss in History, Then He Blames Trump

The latest jobs report is the worst miss of estimated new jobs creation in history, and Joe Biden is desperately trying to blame Trump.

The latest jobs report is the worst miss of estimated new jobs creation in history, and Joe Biden is desperately trying to blame Trump even as he claims nothing is wrong at all. Economists had predicted almost a million new jobs for this past period, but on Friday Biden’s latest report came in at only 266,000 new jobs. This is a huge gap, and the worst miss of jobs predictions in history. Not only did Biden’s numbers come in at a massive miss of the expected new jobs, but the unemployment rate actually went up to 6.1%. https://twitter.com/axios/status/1390648052097163271 One of Biden’s problems us that the Democrats keep handing out free cash to the unemployed which has convinced them that they don’t even need to go look for a job. https://twitter.com/cvpayne/status/1390648212864839684 Not only was this latest period a big miss, but the last one was also downgraded from the original estimate of 916,000 down to 770,000. When the news broke, Biden initially said everything was juuuust fine. “There is more evidence that our economy is moving in the right direction, but it’s clear we have a long way to go,” Biden said on Friday. But on the other hand, he tried to blame Trump, saying, “When we came in, we inherited a year of profound economic crisis and mismanagement on the virus.” Lies. The fact is, the report showed unemployment rose in April for the first time since April 2020, when the economic fallout from the coronavirus pandemic first hit the nation.
