AOC’s Attack on Supreme Court Over Abortion Case Implodes When Biden Accuser Steps In

Western Journal

Published

For Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, it must have looked like an easy attack.

The New York congresswoman, de facto “squad leader” and one of the shrillest voices of the Democratic Party’s shrillest wing, decided to weigh in Wednesday on the Supreme Court’s consideration of a restrictive abortion law by attacking Justice Brett Kavanaugh with rehashed accusations.

But she wasn’t counting on Tara Reade.

In her Twitter post commenting on Wednesday’s high court arguments in the Dobb v. Jackson Women’s Health Organizations, AOC tried to resurrect the baseless smears the left used to try to derail Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the court in 2018.

“Reminder that Brett Kavanaugh *still* remains credibly accused of sexual assault on multiple accounts w/ corroborated details & this year the FBI admitted it never fully investigated,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote.

“Yet the court is letting him decide on whether to legalize forced birth in the US. No recusal.”

The post is practically a marvel of dishonesty.

Not only is it untrue that Kavanaugh “remains credibly accused of sexual assault,” he was literally never “credibly accused” in the first place. No honest man or woman who wasn’t blinded by partisan rage could have looked at accusations brought against Kavanaugh with anything but deep suspicion.

Do you think the Brett Kavanaugh case destroyed the media's credibility?

A charitable observer might grant that something might have happened that spurred Christine Blasey Ford to go public with a hazy story about an alleged assault that maybe, just possibly, might have happened somewhere in Maryland, some time in the early 1980s. But that’s a far, far cry from ever seriously considering that Brett Kavanaugh was the perpetrator.

To even revisit the shameless hucksterism that accompanied the attempted assassination of Kavanaugh’s character by the unscrupulous left is infuriating. Remember Julie Swetnick and her impossible tales of gang rape at parties she attended — over and over?

Remember now-imprisoned, now-disgraced attorney Michael Avenatti’s role in fostering the anti-Kavanaugh blood lust?

These are just a couple of items. There were many, many more. No politician or political party that participated is worthy of a minute of a single American’s trust. Every media outlet that joined in — and it was the vast majority of the mainstream — willingly sacrificed what little credibility it retained to try to torpedo Kavanaugh’s chances.

It’s a blot on American politics and what used to be the semi-respectable profession of journalism that should last for generations.

AOC’s utterly dishonest tweet came in for more than its share of well-justified criticism.

But a post from Tara Read made it clear just how foolish AOC’s comment really was.

Reade, who in 2019 accused now-President Joe Biden of sexually assaulting her back in 1993, when she was an aide in his Senate office, pointed out that virtually everything AOC spuriously claimed about Kavanaugh could be said about Biden — with the difference being Biden was given a pass by the government, the media and his own political party.

“Agreed @AOC,” Reade wrote. “Remember that Biden *still*remains credibly accused of sexual assault (by me) & sexual harassment on multiple accounts (8) w/corroborated details and he was never investigated yet he is POTUS. Thank you for believing all survivors regardless of political affiliation

It’s important to be clear that this isn’t meant to say Reade’s accusation is the truth. It’s entirely possible only Read and Biden really know whether anything happened between them in 1993 (and, in all sincerity, it might be even more possible that Biden wouldn’t remember it if it did).

What matters is the hypocrisy Reade is pointing out.

In 2018, the mainstream media, the Democratic Party and the cultural commissars of Hollywood disgraced themselves and their country by publicly supporting transparently baseless allegations against Kavanaugh for their own political ends.

They believed — or pretended to believe — patently ludicrous stories about a man who’d served in public life for decades without a blemish on his reputation — even when those stories went far beyond absurd.

Meanwhile, when an accusation by a woman against Biden surfaced, it was summarily dismissed by the mainstream media.

Unlike Blasey Ford, Reade at least can remember the year and location of the alleged sexual assault she claims took place. There’s even evidence that she and Biden actually knew each other. Blasey Ford couldn’t even scratch up that minimum factor to give her own story credibility.

None of those facts are likely to matter to the committed pro-abortion side of the Democratic Party. The fact that Kavanaugh is a potential vote to overturn the constitutional monstrosity of Roe v. Wade was what they really feared about him, not some fantastical story about an alleged sexual assault no one remembers but the alleged victim — and her memory kept changing.

What’s important here is that Reade’s post makes it clear just how rabid, viciously partisan and dishonest the modern left actually is — as personified by the photogenic AOC, her liberal squadmates and the mainstream media that worked with them to try to destroy Brett Kavanaugh.

For AOC, a tweet smearing Kavanaugh once again probably looked like an easy line of attack to rally supporters for a nonexistent constitutional “right” to abortion that was created by a previous Supreme Court.

Instead, she just left herself open to be proven a dishonest fool. And every one of her supporters, too.

Americans Unleash on Biden After Encountering Bare Shelves at Grocery Stores Across Country

Western Journal

Published

President Joe Biden’s supply chain crisis has been raging for some time, and it is now wreaking havoc on Americans trying to live their everyday lives.

According to Fox News, a growing number of Americans are experiencing massive shortages at their local grocery stores, and they are directing their ire at Biden because of it.

Many Twitter users began using the hashtag #BareShelvesBiden to showcase the precarious situations at their local stores.

Some users told stories of the lengths they had to go to in order to find seemingly basic food items.

“This was the 2nd store we went to looking for bagels,” one user said. “Found the bagels but zero — ZERO — plain cream cheese. If you want Kraft parmesan cheese or Top Ramen, you’re pretty much out of luck.”

Even CNBC senior White House correspondent Kayla Tausche compared the situation to the apocalypse, which is surprising coming from an employee of a leftist establishment media outlet.

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms noticed the problem too, albeit only through the third party she hired to shop for her. She suggested that the supply shortages were a localized issue.

Some commenters felt Bottoms was trying to insinuate that southwest Atlanta was having problems because it is a lower-income area. If that was her intention, residents from other portions of Atlanta and surrounding areas quickly rebutted the claim.

By the looks of it, Biden’s supply chain crisis is affecting almost everyone, regardless of income or political affiliation.

As a general rule, it is not a good development for a president when his failures start to greatly affect the lives of everyday Americans.

Will supply chain issues hurt Democrats in the midterm elections?

While many less politically inclined citizens may be willing to overlook foreign policy issues or government spending excesses, they are much less likely to ignore their own inability to buy the food they want.

In a time where Biden’s approval is tanking and Democrats are panicking about the upcoming midterm elections, empty grocery store shelves are just another point in a long list of problems for the Biden administration.

Soros-Backed Prosecutor Marilyn Mosby Indicted on 4 Federal Charges

Western Journal

immigration

On Thursday, a federal grand jury chose to indict Baltimore’s top prosecutor on four counts.

Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby now faces charges of perjury and “making false mortgage applications in the purchase of two Florida vacation homes,” the Office of the U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland told The Associated Press.

The charges are related to Mosby’s alleged lies about “meeting qualifications for coronavirus-related distributions from a city retirement plan in 2020.”

Prosecutors say Mosby lied on multiple mortgage application forms when she attempted to buy homes in Kissimmee, Florida, and Long Boat Key, Florida.

Mosby first entered the spotlight in 2015 during the infamous Baltimore riots following the death of Freddie Gray.

The openly progressive prosecutor pursued charges against the six police officers involved in Gray’s death.

In the end, none of the officers were convicted.

Mosby has long been criticized for her progressive approach.

Under her tenure in Baltimore, which began in 2015, the number of murders, rapes, aggravated assaults, burglaries and robberies all rose, according to an Oct. 27, 2020, report from The Heritage Foundation.

Most recently, Mosby faced criticism in November for defending Joseph Rosenbaum, the convicted sex offender who was shot while allegedly attempting to murder Kyle Rittenhouse during the Kenosha, Wisconsin, racial justice riots of 2020.

This most recent federal indictment comes months after a federal investigation into her affairs was first announced.

Both Mosby and her husband Nick Mosby, the president of the Baltimore City Council, faced various accusations in March of 2021 related to their alleged illicit use of campaign funds.

The duo was purportedly using campaign funds to pay off personal legal fees and travel expenses.

A federal probe was issued into their financial dealings at the time.

The accusations and alleged discrepancies did not stop at the campaign funds, however.

An additional federal subpoena had been issued to two churches in order to investigate whether Nick Mosby had been making financial contributions to either institution.

Both Mosbys were reportedly issued a lien by the IRS following three full years of unpaid taxes on their property. It is unknown if that lien was paid.

The two perjury counts carry a maximum sentence of five years in prison and the two mortgage-related offenses could carry with them a maximum of 30 years in prison each, according to the AP.
