Flashback: AOC Says Guaranteed Housing Comes Before the ‘Privilege To Earn A Profit’

What kind of sense does this make?

You know in the Constitution where the Founders said everyone has the right to healthcare and housing? Oh. Did you not catch that part? AOC and her ilk continue to do everything in their power to re-write the greatest single document in the history of any nation. Check out her latest, via Daily Wire:

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) demanded at a town hall event in the Bronx on Thursday that everybody be given “access” to guaranteed homes before anyone is allowed the “privilege to earn a profit.”

AOC said, “We have to make sure that housing is being legislated as a human right. What does that mean? What it means is that our access and our ability and our guarantee to having a home comes before someone else’s privilege to earn a profit.

She added, “I want to make sure that we connect some dots because when we introduced the Green New Deal we were saying what is a girl from the Bronx doing and talked about environmentalism that doesn’t make any sense, right? Wrong. Because one of the big things that we talked about was that we need to clean our buildings. … When we talk about our right to a clean home, when we talk about retrofitting buildings, what we’re talking about is cleaning our air and cleaning our water because when we talk about what housing as a right means, it doesn’t mean that you have a right to four crumbling walls and a dirty floor.

Ocasio-Cortez didn’t seem happy or sad after learning that a billionaire is going to pay off student debt for the entire 2019 graduating class of Morehouse College.

But conservatives on Twitter let her know what she missed.

Here’s her tweet:

Every Morehouse Class of 2019 student is getting their student debt load paid off by their commencement speaker.

This could be the start of what’s known in Econ as a ‘natural experiment.’ Follow these students & compare their life choices w their peers over the next 10-15 years.

Reactions:

This amazing act of kindness brought to you by a billionaire – and the capitalist system that made his billions possible.

This is how it’s supposed to work – personal and or private charity. It is not the government’s job to pay off debt for college students.

Period the end. 🙂

Good for the students but Robert F. Smith didn’t make his wealth in a #socialist society. He worked at Goldman Sachs, left and built Vista Equity Partners that is worth over $4 billion and manages an estimated $30 billion. That’s called #capitalism.

Sure is nice that a billionaire could pay that as a gift to these students.

Glad no one called them all evil or anything.

People can give things to each other voluntarily? Who knew?

Yay for capitalism!

Save conservative media!

Top Debate Coach Reveals What Could Potentially Derail Biden During First Presidential Debate

Published

If you’re dying for some entertaining television, you’re going to finally get what you are craving next week when President Donald Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden go head-to-head during a televised debate, the first of the season. This, ladies and gentlemen, is going to be one for the ages that you won’t want to miss. Ahead of the debate, Brett O’Donnell, a top debate coach, has revealed a few things that might end up derailing Biden during this first debate. via Fox News: “[Biden] has not done any tough interviews in this campaign so far, whether or not he can handle the toughest of interviews, a presidential debate, being attacked by the president and also tough questions from Chris Wallace in that first debate remains to be seen,” O’Donnell told “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday. “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace was selected to moderate the first presidential debate scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 29, at Case Western University and the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio. The format for the first showdown calls for six 15-minute-long segments – with each segment dedicated to a particular topic. Trump was interviewed by Wallace in July and Kilmeade pointed out that the president “basically went through” the list of debate topics “with the guy that’s going to be hitting him with the questions.” “I think that’s a tremendous advantage,” the debate coach said. “First of all, Chris Wallace is a tough interviewer, he is tough on everyone.” “The president has been through that now and so he can anticipate how Chris Wallace might approach this debate,” O’Donnell continued. No matter how you cut it, the president is far more prepared and mentally lucid for this debate than Joe Biden could ever hope to be in his current state. There are so many…

New Polls Have Trump Surpassing Biden In Both Florida And Arizona

Published

on

A couple of brand new polls have some good news for President Trump, indicating that he’s now taken the lead over Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in two major swing states, Florida and Arizona. A poll conducted by ABC News/Washington Post that was released on Wednesday revealed that among likely voters in Arizona, the president was now ahead of Biden by one point, with Trump having 49 percent to the former vice president’s 48 percent. President Trump swung ahead of Biden by four points in Florida, with his support now hitting 51 percent compared to Biden’s 47 percent. via Washington Examiner: Many election analysts believe that the election result in Florida, and its 29 Electoral College votes, could be the decisive factor that determines whether it is Trump or Biden who wins the presidential election. The president lagged behind Biden in the results for only registered voters, a less-accurate measure of what the election result would be if it were held today. In Arizona, Trump had 47% to Biden’s 49% among registered voters, and in Florida, he had 47% to 48% for Biden. The polls were conducted Sept. 15-20, which included two days of polling following the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Friday. It’s important to remember that poll numbers are dubious, especially given the fact that the last presidential cycle had polling declare that Hillary Clinton was going to win in a landslide, which didn’t happen. There are plenty of good folk in this country who don’t participate in these surveys, thus a silent majority is out there who haven’t declared who they are voting for and will not do so until they cast their ballot. So, in the grand scheme of things, these polls aren’t set in stone indicators of the outcome of the…
