Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is getting attention for all the wrong reasons.

She’s quick to let the nation know what she’s thinking, yet, 11 times out of 10 it’s evident she has no clue about what she speaks.

Now, AOC has a plan to change gun and immigration laws in the United States without the help of Congress.

From The Blaze:

Now, according to Politico, Ocasio-Cortez and other progressive lawmakers plan to use similar tactics to advance their anti-Second Amendment agenda and circumvent the legislative process.

Ocasio-Cortez and her allies are joining veteran Democratic lawmakers to try to “shame” America’s massive financial institutions “into taking a stand on some of the country’s most divisive issues: climate change, gun violence and immigration,” Politico reported.

[…]

The lawmakers are leveraging seats on the powerful House Financial Services Committee and a huge following on social media to confront finance industry executives and discourage them from funding oil pipelines, firearms makers and private prison companies that operate immigration detention centers. Like-minded activist groups are helping amplify the message.

Ocasio-Cortez noted, “There’s more than one way to skin a cat, and not everything has to be done through legislation explicitly. We can also use the tools that we have here to pressure change in other ways as well.

She also sent the following tweet:

The country’s largest organized labor group is telling AOC that her “Green New Deal” is bad news for America.

From Daily Wire:

The AFL-CIO, America’s largest organized-labor group, slammed socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) Green New Deal in a letter to her and Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA), stating that the far-left plan could “cause immediate harm to millions of our members and their families.”

“We welcome the call for labor rights and dialogue with labor, but the Green New Deal resolution is far too short on specific solutions that speak to the jobs of our members and the critical sections of our economy,” the letter from the AFL-CIO Energy Committee states. “It is not rooted in an engineering-based approach and makes promises that are not achievable or realistic.”

“We will not accept proposals that could cause immediate harm to millions of our members and their families,” the letter continued. “We will not stand by and allow threats to our members’ jobs and their families’ standard of living go unanswered.”

Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal,” if somehow passed by Congress, was thought to have cost U.S. taxpayers tens of trillions of dollars.

A new report suggests the real number could nearly hit $100 trillion.

That would come to, roughly, $650,000 per American household.

MSNBC’s Joy Reid Argues That ‘Wealthy, White Christians’ Will Use Apartheid Tactics to Keep Power

Such a good Democrat, isn’t she?

MSNBC’s Joy Reid is a trip. Then again, she’s simply being a good Democrat. President Trump recently blasted the far-left TV host for being a far-left TV host…and he went IN! LOOK: Who the hell is Joy-Ann Reid? Never met her, she knows ZERO about me, has NO talent, and truly doesn’t have the “it” factor needed for success in showbiz. Had a bad reputation, and now works for the Comcast/NBC losers making up phony stories about me. Low Ratings. Fake News! https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1172858577951821825?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1172858577951821825&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.washingtonexaminer.com%2Fnews%2Fjoy-reid-claims-wealthy-white-christian-americans-will-implement-apartheid-tactics And here comes Ried with the blabbering nonsense… From Washington Examiner: MSNBC host Joy Reid warned at an event for the American Federation of Teachers union that white Christian Americans will cling to power with tactics that echo South African apartheid. Reid said, “No country is an eternal democracy. Democracy is extremely fragile, and multiracial democracy is so fragile, we’re practically the only one that’s pulled it off. This is a very difficult thing to maintain. And when you have a very determined minority, in this case wealthy white men and wealthy, white Christian men and Christian Americans who are of the fundamentalist variety, who are very clear that no matter what happens, if they have to pull the South Africa model to maintain power forever, they will do it. And they’re not afraid of it, and they’re increasingly open about it, and Donald Trump is merely the avatar for this. He didn’t create it, he simply benefited from it.” She added, “And I think the sooner that the majority, the actual numerical majority in this country figures that out and stop treating these elections as just foregone conclusions that you can fix it with just a simple election and that it will be free and fair, the sooner that we will wake up and actually have…
