AOC’s Star Shines Bright As She Stumps For Sanders In Iowa

Published

on

Sen. Bernie Sanders was stuck in Washington during the oh so long hours of opening arguments in President Trump’s Senate impeachment trial, which means he wasn’t able to hit the road and head to Iowa to do some much needed campaigning ahead of the primary rolling around in February.

Fortunately for him, his proxy on the campaign trail, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, was able to help him out by getting crowds of his supporters fired up ahead of the caucuses.

Here’s more from The Washington Examiner:

“Iowa, are you ready?” the Democratic congresswoman from New York asked a cheering crowd in Ames, Iowa, last weekend. “We all have something to give. All of us have power. In this moment, we just need to dig down deep and acknowledge it in ourselves.”

Supporters of Sanders, many having only read or heard about Ocasio-Cortez, were impressed by her performances in the state.

“We need her here. It’s great to bring in celebrities like this to help energize support for Bernie,” said Peter Richardson, an 18-year-old University of Iowa student. “Anything like this helps get the message across.”

Ocasio-Cortez, a former bartender, has shown herself a natural speaker at Sanders campaign events, weaving personal stories into her liberal policies.

Sam Johnson, an 18-year-old from Iowa City was thrilled AOC was in the house — do young people still say that? — saying, “Yeah, it’s cool having her here. It’s my first caucus, so I’m kinda bummed I won’t see Bernie speak himself. I’ve only ever watched his YouTube interviews, but this gives me something to do, and I thought she did a great job.”

AOC is proving that while she might be completely clueless about how our government system actually works, she’s rather good at mobilizing folks, especially young people, to get involved in politics, which could most definitely make her a formidable foe for Republicans down the line when she’s finally old enough to run for president.

Ocasio-Cortez is part of the four first-term women group known not-so-affectionately as “the Squad,” dubbed so by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The Squad has a reputation for being anti-Semitic and spewing all kinds of anti-Israel junk.

Watch: Bernie Supporters Intimidate & Harass Dem Candidate, Swarm Her Car – ‘Block Her In’

Just brutal!

Bernie Sanders supporters are the kindest, most gracious human beings on the face of the planet – said nobody ever. Time and again, these people have shown that they are dangerous. Here’s just the latest example of their extremism, via Washington Examiner: A group of Sen. Bernie Sanders supporters attempted to intimidate an Illinois Democratic congressional candidate into supporting the socialist’s agenda. The Vermont senator’s supporters on Monday live-streamed their activity on social media while Betsy Dirksen Londrigan concluded a campaign appearance in Champaign, Illinois. Following the event, the group challenged Londrigan to debate Illinois socialist candidate Stefanie Smith.

From Daily Wire: It turns out, the less you pay attention to politics, the more likely you are to support the socialist option for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.

Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), who has jumped between 5 and 6 points in the polls since Biden entered the race.

He makes it clear that he’s a full-on socialist and he’s not ashamed of it – for whatever reason. If president, the 2020 hopeful says private insurance companies will go bye-bye and you will certainly pay more in taxes. Bernie noted, “What Medicare For All does is it eliminates your private health insurance…premiums. You’re not going to be paying that. You’re not going to be paying co-payments. You’re not going to be paying deductibles. …Will you be paying more in taxes? Yes you…

New Rasmussen Poll Shows Trump Beating Bernie By 7 Points In Head-to-Head Matchup

Great news for the country…

For America to keep on winning, President Trump must remain in office. If implemented, Bernie Sanders’ policies would wreak havoc on the United States in what would most likely be an unprecedented fashion. Based on a new poll from Rasmussen, conservatives’ fears can subside for now. Trump beats Bernie head-to-head. Here’s the scoop, via Breitbart: President Trump beats Democrat-Socialist Bernie Sanders by 50 percent to 43 percent, according to a poll released Wednesday by Rasmussen Reports. Rasmussen, one of the most accurate pollsters of the 2016 presidential election, surveyed 1,000 likely voters February 24-25. This poll has a margin of error of 3 points. Trump will need every single vote he can get next November. That goes without saying, obviously. But it’s even more true when Hollywood and the mainstream media continues to campaign hard against him. Two major polls from November 2019 have released some stats that will have Democrats retreating to their safe spaces like nobody’s business. It isn’t just good news for Trump, it’s great news for Trump. https://twitter.com/bennyjohnson/status/1198652943534301186 https://twitter.com/Rasmussen_Poll/status/1198300483263369229?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1198300483263369229&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2019%2F11%2Fhuge-black-support-for-president-donald-trump-hits-34-in-both-emerson-and-rasmussen-polls%2F This quick example should show every Democrat why it’s not okay to support the Democrat Socialist senator from Vermont in 2020.
