How will this play out in November?

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not respected amongst conservatives. That much is obvious. It’s hard to take a person seriously when they know so little of which they speak.

The thing is, AOC isn’t even taken seriously by members of her own party. That has to sting but it’s the truth – and the truth hurts. From Fox News:

House Democrats and their aides are quickly losing patience with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over her office’s nonstop sparring with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other long-serving members, suggesting the speaker’s dismissive comments toward her may represent the view of a growing section of the caucus.

“She is a complete fraud,” one senior Democratic source told Fox News on Friday, succinctly summing up members’ frustration.

“Her peers do not take her seriously,” the senior Democratic source said Friday, adding: “They think it is absurd to call the speaker racist. Offensive and absurd.”

[…]

“She is a nobody. She is a freshman member of Congress with no power. She is not worth the speaker’s brainpower,” the source said — accusing her of starting “needless distractions from serious issues,” and skipping meetings and conference calls in favor of media interviews, tweets and “glamour.”

Ocasio-Cortez put on a fake accent while speaking at Al Sharpton’s National Action Network conference.

It was so, so, so, so bad. Imagine in your head what you think AOC doing a southern accent might sound like, then watch the clip below.

It’s even worse then what you’re thinking.

Check it out…

DAAAAANG! That was absolutetly horrendous.

It’s clear she was trying to put on an accent.

She can deny it all she wants, but the evidence is pretty clear cut.

AOC then sent two tweets after getting called out. It was evident she was upset…

Folks talking about my voice can step right off. Women’s March & Kavanaugh speech, same.

Any kid who grew up in a distinct linguistic culture & had to learn to navigate class enviros at school/work knows what’s up.

My Spanish is the same way.

These conspiracy mills are 🚮.

As much as the right wants to distort & deflect, I am from the Bronx. I act & talk like it, *especially* when I’m fired up and especially when I’m home.

It is so hurtful to see how every aspect of my life is weaponized against me, yet somehow asserted as false at the same time.

Me thinks the lady doth protest too much.

Remember Hillary Clinton’s southern accent?

Manhunt Ensues After Possible Ex-Cop Commits Massacre in Texas

Authorities are telling residents to shelter in place.

Published

The citizens of Austin, Texas are on high alert Sunday afternoon after a massacre left at least three people dead with the suspect still at large as of this writing. Law enforcement has identified the suspected killer, and are scouring the city looking for clues. A massive multi-agency manhunt including the FBI and U.S. Marshals is underway in Austin for an armed suspect wanted for killing at least three people near an apartment complex late Sunday morning. Austin police said that the three lifeless bodies were all adults, including two Hispanic females, and one Black male. They said they believe the suspect is Stephen Nicholas Broderick, who is possibly a former law enforcement officer charged with sexual assault of a child last summer. Austin’s KXAN, citing an arrest affidavit, reported last June that the Travis County Sheriff’s Office detective was on administrative leave following an arrest for allegations of sexual assault. Police had some very specific ideas of what could come next in the case. The Austin Police Department said the suspect was still at large as of approximately 2:30 p.m. local time and is considered armed and dangerous. Police have urged everyone nearby to shelter in place and report suspicious activity. “We are concerned he might possibly take a hostage and be himself sheltered somewhere waiting for us to leave,” Interim Austin Police Chief Joseph Chacon said during a news conference Sunday afternoon. Police said that the victims were known to Broderick, but did not elaborate any further.

Biden Team Sends Stern Threat to Russia Over Navalny’s Health

This is just the latest escalation in the war of words between these two nations.

Published

While every nation on this planet likely harbors some sort of terrible secret, or some evil underpinnings, no one plays the role of international bad guy quite like Russia does. The enormous nation has no real qualms about the world knowing its business, and Vladimir Putin has held onto power for as long as he as by doing the bare minimum required to keep him from being called a dictator. Beyond that, the nation appears fond of strongman-shenanigans like poisoning and jailing dissident journalists like Alexi Navalny, who is on death’s door in a Russian prison camp. If he dies, US President Joe Biden says that the Kremlin will pay the price. President Joe Biden’s national security adviser warned Sunday that there will be repercussions for Russia if Putin critic Alexei Navalny dies, amid reports that his health is rapidly deteriorating in prison. “We have communicated to the Russian government that what happens to Mr. Navalny in their custody is their responsibility and they will be held accountable by the international community,” Jake Sullivan said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” Biden has had a fairly poor relationship with Russia doing his first few months in office, with the two nations issuing not-so-subtle statements and threats in each others’ direction.
