FLASHBACK: GOP Senator Utterly Embarrasses AOC on Gun Control, & She’s Stunned Speechless

Sounds about right…

Once again, uninformed freshman Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continues to show she knows so very little of which she speaks.

This time, she responded to former Florida governor, current Florida senator, Rick Scott.

Scott shut her down hard.

It all began with 2020 contender Sen. Cory Booker’s (NJ) thoughts on creating a federal license for gun owners.

LOOK:

Sen. Cory Booker is rolling out a sweeping gun control agenda that includes requiring licenses for all gun owners, as well as more standard proposals such as universal background checks and banning assault weapons

Scott’s tweets:

🚨BREAKING: the latest terrible idea to come out of the Democrats’ 2020 primary is a federal gun registry. If you want to buy a gun, @CoryBooker wants you to register with the federal government.

This would be scary if Booker had any chance of becoming President. (1/2)

What’s next? Will we have to register sharp knives? Maybe @AOC will make us register every time we buy meat as part of her #GreenNewDeal.

The Democrats are officially the @BernieSanders Party. They want America to be less prosperous and less free. (2/2)

Enter Ocasio-Cortez, who doesn’t get it:

That a sitting US Senator can say something lacking so much critical thinking + honesty is embarrassing to the institution.

If you were a female candidate, maybe you’d be called “unlikeable,” “crazy,” or “uninformed.”

But since you’re not, this inadequacy is accepted as normal.

Finally, Scott brings the thunder:

That a sitting Congresswoman doesn’t understand sarcasm would be embarrassing to the institution if you hadn’t embarrassed yours to the point of irrelevance already.

America rejects socialism and will continue to.

As you’d imagine, AOC was left speechless.

Ocasio-Cortez recently said about the Department of Veterans Affairs, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

What’s weird is that everyone seems to agree, for years now, that the VA is wildly broken.

In a surprising twist, President Donald Trump actually agrees with AOC.

Well, he agrees with her in his own way.

LOOK:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is correct, the VA is not broken, it is doing great. But that is only because of the Trump Administration. We got Veterans Choice & Accountability passed. “President Trump deserves a lot of credit.” Dan Caldwell, Concerned Veterans of America

From Daily Caller:

Trump touted a measure he signed in 2017 in the Wednesday tweet. The legislation fixed long-running accountability issues and ensured that incompetent individuals failing to adequately serve veterans did not remain on the VA payroll.

Trump has repeatedly touted the measure, even using a famous catchphrase from his “The Apprentice” days.

“It’s called VA accountability,” he said at a June 2018 rally in Minnesota. “Now, you bring the person into the office and you say, ‘Jim, I’m sorry to tell you, you are fired. Get out of here.’”

Ocasio-Cortez’s poll numbers are in the garbage.

In fact, she’s far less popular than President Trump…and even Hillary Clinton.

It’s not hard to see why. AOC constantly finds a way to stick her foot in her mouth.

What’s even sadder is that she routinely doubles down on her mistakes, which only serves to exacerbate the situation.

Save conservative media!

House Minority Leader Says Democrats ‘Trying To Frame’ Trump Because They’re Scared Of Possible 2020 Outcome

Published

on

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy recently delivered a sharp statement about the motivations behind the current impeachment fever that has swept through the Democratic Party in Congress, stating the left is framing Trump because they’re scared of the potential outcome of the 2020 election. Here’s more of what McCarthy said via The Washington Examiner: “We’ve never had an impeachment in the first term,” McCarthy said on Fox News hours before the first public impeachment proceedings began in the House. “They are so afraid to face the president in the election; they’re trying to frame him.” McCarthy has been one of Trump’s strongest supporters on Capitol Hill since Democrats announced a formal impeachment investigation into the president’s conduct. Democrats have seized on a July 25 phone call between Trump and the president of Ukraine after a whistleblower alleged the president abused his power in asking the foreign leader to investigate Joe Biden. “There’s no due process, the president’s attorney is not in the room, cannot cross-examine, we cannot have our witnesses,” McCarthy complained. “We can’t have a whistleblower who this all started from, an individual who was not even on the phone call.” Over the last several weeks, the GOP has placed most of their focus on discrediting the whistleblower who made the initial complaint against the president and have requested that the individual be named and forced to testify in the public hearings. Republicans have repeatedly accused Democrats of running a “sham” impeachment with the goal of undoing the 2016 election. Democratic leadership has responded to the calls for the whistleblower to be named by stating that doing so would put his life in danger and would discourage future whistleblowers from coming forward in the future. https://youtu.be/ksOhd2IqPWs

Only Democrat Running Against Tom Cotton Drops Out Just Hours After Filing Deadline

Published

on

The only Democratic senate candidate in the state of Arkansas decided to call it quits just one day after the filing deadline. Josh Mahony, an executive for a nonprofit organization, was the sole Democratic candidate who was going to take on Sen. Tom Cotton in the 2020 presidential election. Mahony stated on Tuesday he was dropping from the race due to a “family health concern.” Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: In a statement posted to Twitter, Mahony commented on his withdrawal from the race and thanked his supporters. “It has been the honor of my life to be able to meet and visit with so many Arkansans over the last six months and hear their voices,” he said. “It was my sincere hope to be their advocate in Washington, D.C. However, in this moment right now, I need to focus on my family and place their interests first.” https://twitter.com/joshuamahony/status/1194348276759154689 Mahony raised around $250,000 to fund his bid against Cotton, but it was still unlikely that he would have won. Cotton easily beat his 2014 competitor, former Democratic Sen. Mark Pryor, and Mahony’s only other campaign experience was a failed 2018 congressional bid in which he earned half as many votes as his competitor, Rep. Steve Womack, Republican of Arkansas. The timing of Mahony’s decision to quit the race does not bode well for the Democratic Party, as the deadline to file to run in the 2020 presidential race has already passed. Michael John Gray, the head of the Democratic Party of Arkansas, stated that he didn’t learn about Mahony’s decision until someone sent him the tweeted statement. Gray is in talks with the Arkansas secretary of state’s office to see if they can get another candidate on the ballot despite the fact the deadline is expired. Arkansas has the…
