Democrats and their predictions…

Millennials need to come together to apologize for New York Democrat Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The Congresswoman knows so very little of which she speaks. It might be funny if it wasn’t so aggravating.

During a speaking event, AOC said the world will stop spinning in 12 years if drastic action isn’t taken on climate change.

Those words actually came from her lips.

After years of searching, there is still zero evidence the Trump campaign colluded with Russia. That’s not exactly a surprise to Trump supporters.

Collusion, however, seems to take place on the other side of the political aisle on a relatively frequent basis.

The latest example?

Ocasio-Cortez and Twitter.

Twitter is colluding with Democrats in Congress to ensure they’re using the social media platform as effectively as possible.

From USA Today:

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez dances outside her office, solicits Instant Pot recipes and gets into fights on Twitter. Soon you may see other Democrats taking a page from her social media playbook.

The House Democratic Policy and Communications Committee is hosting a session Thursday morning with Ocasio-Cortez of New York (@AOC – 2.42 million followers) and Rep. Jim Himes of Connecticut (@jahimes – 76,500 followers) “on the most effective ways to engage constituents on Twitter and the importance of digital storytelling.” …

The decision to invite Ocasio-Cortez, a House freshman, to share her expertise signals the Democratic party’s attempt to bring in fresh voices – even when those voices don’t always agree with leadership.

Well, isn’t that swell? People certainly need to learn more about socialist policies from a 29-year-old genius, huh?

Here’s a couple tweets from Dems who are “learning” AOC’s way…

WATCH:

Republican Congressman Steve Scalise (LA) was nearly murdered by deranged left-wing activist James Hodgkinson in June 2017.

If a Democrat representative had been shot in the Trump era, we’d be talking about it to this day.

Scalise sent a tweet calling out Ocasio-Cortez for wanting to raise taxes to 70%.

See it:

Alexandria responded…

Scalise sent another tweet that combined some responses from AOC’s “radical” supporters:

Her supporters showed their true colors…

There’s a lot Ocasio-Cortez still has to learn, especially about America.

Check out this message she sent, implying that she, herself, is an “American Revolutionary.”

If you can’t make it out, it reads…

The world the British colonists inherited was ruled by kings, hereditary aristocrats, and wealthy gentlemen. But in the year 1776, Americans decided to change that world. They would do without a king or aristocrats. They would create a new government based solely on “the people.”

But who would really count as “the people,” and how would it all work? Should wealthy and educated gentlemen still dominate the government? Should a new, representative form of government truly represent the interests and views of common men and women? How should those people participate to make their voices heard?

Reactions:

When people look back 50 years from now are they going to say George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Barack Obama, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez were all crucial to America’s development over the centuries?

No.

Just two of those people will be credited, the other two forgotten.

Apple Backs Down, Will Allow Parler Back on App Store

The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

Published

Free speech is a fickle thing, and precious too.  If we’re not careful, it can be stripped away but those who hide behind the claim that a “private” company can limit your personal freedoms. Twitter, Facebook, and other social media platforms are almost always the culprits here, bending the algorithmic reach of those with whom they disagree. Enter Parler:  A free speech app where only the bare legal minimum of content would be moderated. The platform became incredibly popular with an astonishing swiftness, but soon faced trouble from companies who had previously aligned themselves with Facebook and Twitter’s more controlling stance. Apple, who had previously booted Parler from its App Store, has now relented to the Constitution. Apple has approved Parler’s return to the iOS app store following improvements the social media company made to better detect and moderate hate speech and incitement, according to a letter the iPhone maker sent to Congress on Monday. The decision clears the way for Parler, an app popular with conservatives including some members of the far right, to be downloaded once again on Apple devices. The letter — addressed to Sen. Mike Lee and Rep. Ken Buck and obtained by CNN — explained that since the app was removed from Apple’s platform in January for violations of its policies, Parler “has proposed updates to its app and the app’s content moderation practices.” On April 14, Apple’s app review team told Parler that its proposed changes were sufficient, the letter continued. Now, all Parler needs to do is to flip the switch. The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

WATCH: NC Man Slings Rabid Bobcat Across His Front Yard

WOW!

For many North Carolinians, neighborhood living brings with it the peace of mind that the most invasive animals you might have to deal with are squirrels who are trying to rest in your attic, or raccoons hoping to fatten up from your trash can.  The Tar Heel state has some bears, sure, but they’re not often the pestering or dangerous type like you might see in the Pacific Northwest or parts of California. But one man this week got up close and personal with a seriously frightening creature this week, after it lunged at his wife from underneath their car. A disturbing video captures the moment a rabid bobcat attacks a North Carolina woman—and the moment her husband grabs it off her and throws it through the air. Kristi and Happy Wade of Burgaw were walking to their SUV to take their cat to the vet the morning of April 9 when the growling animal ran across the street and attacked, WIS-TVreports. After throwing it several feet, Happy Wade eventually shot it after it ran into the couple’s garage and then continued to charge, ABC 11 reports. A neighbor who had been jogging by at the time stopped to help and called 911. Video of the incident is simply unbelievable. https://twitter.com/nojumper/status/1383145940807163904?s=20 The bobcat was injured by Wade and later euthanized by local law enforcement.  An autopsy revealed that the animal was indeed rabid, and the family has been undergoing treatment for their numerous bite wounds.
