AOC’s Constituents Get Rude Awakening When Trying To Contact Her Office By Phone

So much for being the “future of the Democratic Party,” huh?

Published

on

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just keeps adding more and more reasons to the list for why she should never, ever be re-elected to the congressional seat she currently holds, which should be alarming to her, but she seems to be so out of touch with reality she doesn’t even know it’s happening.

Her latest goof up has to do with the fact that she’s now become the least accessible representative in New York City, with the NY and D.C. offices now using filtering systems to prevent callers from speaking with an actual, real life human being.

This is not how you win elections, AOC.

The Post called the offices of each of the 13 lawmakers representing New York City, and all the offices of each of those lawmakers had a person answering the phone — except Ocasio-Cortez’s offices. A congressional Democratic aide accused Ocasio-Cortez of not caring about her constituents.

“She has no plans to serve the people. That’s why she has no constituent services operation,” the aide told The Post. “If you’re a grandma in Queens who needs help with her Medicare and you call AOC’s ‘district office’ you get a recording that tells you to visit the website instead. What kind of elitist nonsense is that? Shameful, it’s all shameful.”

Calls to the Washington, D.C., office are filtered. Only callers with D.C. or New York City area codes have a chance at getting through; other callers are given an automated message that directs them to Ocasio-Cortez’s website.

Calls to her district office in Jackson Heights give constituents the option to press 2, and directs other callers to visit the website or send an email. Pressing 2 does not route the call to an aide or receptionist, however, it simply allows the caller to leave a message.

So what does Corbin Trent, AOC’s spokesman have to say about all this? He said, “With the filter on, only D.C. and New York phone numbers can get through. When you are getting the volume of incoming that we get, the most important thing is to try to filter out some of the volume to get the people you are actually supposed to be here to work for.”

Strangely, Reps. Nancy Pelosi, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and others in Congress all have human staff answering the phones and connecting with constituents. Perhaps AOC just wants to earn a paycheck by doing as little interaction with the folks who have money siphoned from their bank accounts as possible.

It sort of sounds like AOC isn’t the bright spot of hope voters were expecting her to be. Instead, she appears to be more of the same, a politician who only cares for herself and the advancement of her own career.

Here’s to hoping the voters have learned their lesson and decide not to send her back to Washington in the next election.

‘The Palestinian Delusion’ Untangles a Web of Fashionable Lies (Opinion)

A thoughtful opinion piece…

Published

on

Chances are that if you know a college student, he or she believes these things: Israel exists on stolen land. Israelis are all just Europeans, anyway. The true inhabitants of the land that is called Israel today are the Palestinians, and their country is Palestine. The Israeli occupation is cruel, and marked by numerous human rights abuses perpetrated against the innocent Palestinians. One day, the occupation will end, and from the river to the sea, Palestine will be free. But fervently and passionately believed falsehoods are still just falsehoods. And now, one of the nation’s foremost authorities on Islam and jihad, and author of the unique and groundbreaking The History of Jihad, has turned to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and delivered a concise but comprehensive refutation of all the false claims about this conflict that prevail today on college campuses and elsewhere. In the sharp and factual book The Palestinian Delusion: The Catastrophic History of the Middle East Peace Process, historian Robert Spencer untangles the web of lies that envelop all discussion of this conflict in the international media, and gives us the unvarnished (and often unwelcome) truth. One thing that nobody ever seems to wonder about is why this conflict is still going on so many decades after some of the most renowned and respected leaders in the world began to devote concerted efforts to ending it. Why has every one of the numerous attempts to bring peace failed, and failed consistently for seven decades now? In The Palestinian Delusion, Spencer answers that question and many others about this intractable dispute, and in the process, establishes definitively that Israel, contrary to the claims of so many among the academic, political, and media elites, not only has a right to exist, but has the best claim of any country to the supposedly…

Ilhan Omar: Hateful Rhetorical Is Synonymous With Republican Party, Which Inspires Terror Attacks

Is this what she truly believes?

Ilhan Omar might’ve been dropped on her head. Not as a child, but as an adult. Okay, maybe both. For someone to be this ignorant about, well, everything, goes to show that too many people don’t understand politics or America, in general. The freshman lawmaker made some very silly comments on radically far-left MSNBC host Joy Reid’s morning program on Sunday. Go figure. But even for Ilhan, this stuff is pretty ridiculous. From Daily Wire: Anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) attacked Republicans on Sunday during an interview on far-left MSNBC, claiming that the Republican Party is synonymous with hateful and “sinful” rhetoric. […] “Yeah, I mean hate, sinful, [unintelligible] rhetoric is very dangerous and it’s becoming synonymous with the Republican Party,” Omar responded. “They have refused to condemn and distance themselves from members within their party that have threatened my life and the lives of others, that have caused the deaths of people in this country who follow their message, and have put their names, the names of our president, and many of the Republican leaders in their manifestos as they have taken innocent lives.” WATCH: WOW Watch Ilhan Omar say that Hate is becoming “synonymous with the Republican Party” I’m old enough to remember when some Congresswoman Tweeted some pretty Hateful things herself. https://twitter.com/bennyjohnson/status/1206354899799334912?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1206354899799334912&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Filhan-omar-hate-sinful-rhetoric-is-synonymous-with-gop-gop-inspires-terror-attacks Israel can do no right in the eyes of Omar, Rashida Tlaib – any Democrat, really. Never mind that Palestine doesn’t really exist and that multiple nations have threatened to wipe the Jewish homeland off the face of the earth – that doesn’t matter to the left. What matters is that all things America – and American-ally – are badmouthed and trashed. WATCH: Anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) says that Israel is not a democracy and is not an ally of the United States https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1163551579850412032?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1163551579850412032&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F50811%2Fomar-claims-israel-not-democracy-or-ally-lies-ryan-saavedra
