AOC’s Latest Outburst Included Mocking of Reporter at Border

For someone who despises the President’s “fake news” tirades, AOC sure is looking like a hypocrite today.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has a certain affinity for keeping herself at the forefront of the news cycle, and it’s nothing more than a con-man’s dirty trick.

You see, AOC isn’t quite as dumb as the memes and tropes let on.  Her strength is in her shamelessness, allowing herself to play the part of broke, millennial pseudo-hipster in order to remain at the forefront of the media melee.  Whether it’s putting together IKEA furniture in a live stream, or perfectly crafting soundbites and tweets for maximum “sass”, AOC’s keeping the media in her pocket undoubtedly.

Now, in what is likely just another effort to play the role of “strong, independent democrat”, Ocasio-Cortez is now mocking reporters for attempting to stay safe.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Thursday mocked Fox News correspondent Lawrence Jones for wearing a bulletproof vest while reporting from a portion of U.S. Southern border where a shooting had recently occurred.

“Does ‘live from the border’ mean Party City?” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted with photos of Jones in the green vest provided by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). “Fox is really out here doing the most on a budget to make the border look more dangerous than it is,” the freshman congresswoman added.

Jones explained later that the CBP officers who were responsible for his time at the border required that the reporter don the bulky accessory due to recent cartel activity in the area, including a gunfight that had occurred in recent weeks.

AOC’s tweet spawned further ridicule of Jones, as disgraced CNN personalty Roland Martin attempted to paint the vest as a way for Jones to “increase his speaking fees”.

Pelosi Hands Trump A Win, Announces Plan To Pass NAFTA Replacement

Published

on

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi took a few minutes away from the impeachment fever gripping the House of Representatives to announce that a breakthrough was made on Tuesday concerning negotiations for the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement on trade. The House will vote on a trade deal put together by President Trump that he has been lobbying for Congress to pass for quite some time now. Here’s more from Washington Examiner: “It is infinitely better than what was originally proposed by the administration,” said Pelosi, a California Democrat. House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal, a Massachusetts Democrat, said Democrats are entering the “final stages of text sharing” with other lawmakers “before there is any expedited period of bringing it to the floor.” Neal did not indicate specifically when the House would vote on the deal. The House is set to adjourn for the year on Dec. 20 and lawmakers typically want ample time to review trade deals. Democrats said the accord came after provisions were added addressing labor law enforcement, environmental standards, and prescription drugs, satisfying their members. Neal, the lead Congressional negotiator, stated, “This is a transformative agreement. Our constant emphasis was on enforceability, enforceability, and enforceability, we fixed that.” Democrats went on to say they won the removal of several provisions that would have led to an increase in drug prices. This trade deal is set to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement that was passed back in 1993. This is a major win for the president who has said for years the old agreement was a bad deal for the United States. The new version of the agreement says that 75 percent of a car’s parts must be manufactured in North America to be duty-free, up from the previous 62.5 percent. The deal also says that 40 to…

Woman Protesting With Antifa Rushes Police, Gets Shoved To The Ground

Published

on

Antifa has a well earned reputation for being an aggressive, radical leftist group that likes to get violent during their demonstrations. Numerous stories have come out over the last several years featuring members of Antifa punching and assaulting conservatives at rallies and other egregious acts. Recently, the group held a demonstration in Seattle where the group dressed in black hoodies, wore masks, and then started taunting police officers. Conservative journalist Andy Ngo, himself a victim of violent, radical protesters, covered the insanity. The police were protecting a group of pro-America demonstrators when some of the militants in attendance took it upon themselves to burn a thin blue line American flag while gathered at the base of the statue of John Harte McGraw, Washington’s second governor. A police officer sprayed the flag and put the fire out. One of the militants present shouted at the cop, “What the f*** is wrong with you?” Yet another yelled, “Suck a d**k, you fat motherf***ers!” Here’s more from TheBlaze: Undeterred, the Antifa faithful grabbed the partially burned flag and lit it on fire again — which made them all very happy, including one woman protesting with Antifa, who stood out due to her lack of a mask and the pink accents with her clothing. At another point amid Antifa’s antics, that same woman decked out in pink tried rushing the cops’ bike line. Video shows her running at the officers and getting shoved backward. Now, most folks at this point would acquire some mental clarity and conclude that messing with cops in this way is a bad idea. But this is Antifa we’re talking about, and given that they tend to get away with a quite a bit, the woman naturally ran at the police line again. Her second attempt to rush cops, however,…
