Bartender-Turned-House Rep Shares Offensive “Green Revolution” Cocktails

How isn’t “Mezcal Greyhound” considered offensive when it refers to a busload of Latinos?

Sometimes, we’re not sure if Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is accidentally providing us with material to mock, or if she is sincerely the person that she puts on social media.

I’m not going to pretend that I know what’s going on with Ocasio-Cortez, but there is an air about her social media presence that is far more calculated than chaos.  Even amid the constant push to ridicule her among right-wing media outlets, she has always had an out, per se.  She was always ready with her retort.

She’s a meme-machine, undoubtedly, but is this all a calculated ruse to lull us into paying attention to her?  Or, worse, is Ocasio-Cortez drumming up this attention by being slightly off or goofy on purpose?  Is she the kind of person who would revel in attention of any kind, just so long as her name stayed on the lips of the media.

Heck, she even made it easier for us to refer to her, coining the moniker “AOC” in a brilliant marketing move.

Now, as her Green New Deal sits on the horizon of our political valley, she is again pushing out the absurdity with cocktail recipes for “revolution”.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) posted recipes for “cocktails for revolution” on her Twitter page on Monday.

Ocasio-Cortez posted the following five “recipes”:

– World w/o a #GreenNewDeal: a Bitter Dark n’ Stormy

– Clean transport: an Aviation, but hold the crème de violette

– Bridges, Not Walls: a Mezcal Greyhound

– Paid Parental Leave: Mocktail margarita

– Policy Failure: anything w/ Goldschläger

How isn’t “Mezcal Greyhound” considered offensive when it refers to a busloads of Latinos?

Given that AOC is a former bartender, who made no effort to distance herself from that fact in an effort to appeal to the service industry voting demographic that populates hipster-prone Brooklyn, this post seems extraordinarily curated.

It would come as no surprise to discover that this list was at one point three times the length, and written by interns on a dry erase board somewhere on Capitol Hill.

Perhaps the alternative is more embarrassing, come to think of it.

Poll Shows Dem 2020 Frontrunners Tied, But Neither is Even Running

Kamala Harris took the third place position in the poll.

Boy, oh boy, is the democratic party in a real pickle for the 2020 presidential race.

So far, the left has been using what could be described as a “spray and pray” method of finding a candidate to run against the presumed republican ticket of Trump/Pence.

Some of those who’ve stuck to the wall are starting to slide, like unready spaghetti.  Kamala Harris, for example, has had to resort to begging for donations only a few months into her campaign.

On the other side of the coin, however, Bernie Sander raised $6 million in just one day.

Sanders, 77, entered the 2020 presidential race Tuesday morning. His campaign announced 14 hours later that 150,000 donors had contributed $4 million to the effort. By Wedesday morning that number reached $6 million.

At least $600,000 of that haul came in the form of contributions that will renew monthly.

While impressive, Bernie isn’t even the frontrunner at this point.  In fact, in what must be an embarrassing realization for the DNC, neither of the supposed “frontrunners” are even technically running. 

Former first lady Michelle Obama tied with former Vice President Joe Biden as the top choice among Democratic voters when asked who should be the party’s nominee in 2020.

A Hill-HarrisX poll released Tuesday found that 25 percent of Democrats said they would back Obama in the party primary over nine other declared or potential candidates, including Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas).

Obama has said she is not running, and Biden has not announced whether he will launch another White House bid.

Kamala Harris took the third place position in the poll.

BOMBSHELL: Hate Crime Hoaxer Smollett Gave ‘False Information’ to Cops In 2007

He has a history of lying…

“Empire” actor Jussie Smollett has a history of lying to law enforcement.

Back in 2007, he “provided false information” after receiving a DUI.

Jussie Smollett pleaded no contest to DUI, driving without a license, and providing false information to law enforcement officials in 2007, according to new reports released on Tuesday.

“Tuesday the Los Angeles City Attorney’s office confirmed that in August of 2007 Smollett pleaded no contest to DUI, driving without a license and providing false information to law enforcement,” CBS Chicago reported. “He was sentenced to two years probation and a choice of a fine or jail. Officials at the office could not confirm which Smollett chose. A spokesman for the Chicago Police Department said the department was already aware of the plea.”

This latest revelation follows several significant developments over the last few days, and could end up impacting how prosecutors handle potential false report charges.

Senators Kamala Harris (CA) and Cory Booker (NJ) are both running for president.

The chances that either person secures the Democrat nomination are slim, at best.

After hearing that Empire actor Jussie Smollett was the “victim” of a “hate crime,” both Booker and Harris rushed to slam the “attack” as a “modern day lynching.”

Of course, the country now knows that Smollett faked the attack and paid two brothers to orchestrate the whole thing.

Now, Harris is at a loss for words when confronted by a reporter asking about Smollett…

From Free Beacon:

Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) froze and awkwardly looked around when pressed Monday on her tweet that the alleged attack on Jussie Smollett was a “modern-day lynching,” before saying she needed to see all the facts.

Smollet, a gay, black actor, claimed he was the victim of a hate crime in January, saying two men beat him up in a Chicago street, poured bleach on him and placed a rope around his neck. He also said they yelled, “This is MAGA country,” a reference to President Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” campaign slogan. The story has taken a turn, with police now reportedly investigating whether Smollett orchestrated the attack himself by paying two Nigerian brothers to do it.

Democratic politicians were quick to believe Smollett’s account at the time and tweet out their condemnations, including Harris and other 2020 presidential candidates. She praised the actor as “one of the kindest, most gentle human beings I know” and said “this was an attempted modern day lynching.”
