Former CNBC Anchor Set To Challenge AOC For House Seat

Published

on

A former anchor for CNBC has decided to throw her hat in the ring and challenge New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for her congressional seat this year, and given the poor performance of AOC and her glaring ignorance, she actually has a pretty good shot at ousting her.

The anchor, Michelle Caruso-Cabrera, 53, recently announced she would be running against AOC after filing for the primary on Monday. Ocasio-Cortez won her seat in the primary after defeating incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley.

Here’s more from The Washington Examiner:

“I am the daughter and granddaughter of working class Italian and Cuban immigrants,” Caruso-Cabrera said in a statement. “I am so lucky to have had such a wonderful career and I want everybody to have the opportunity that I’ve had. That’s why I’m running.”

On Tuesday morning, she tweeted, “I’m running for NY-14, to fight for the people of Queens & the Bronx, daughter of Cuban immigrants and living the American Dream.”

Caruso-Cabrera was an anchor on CNBC for more than 20 years as a co-host of Power Lunch and was the network’s chief international correspondent. She left in 2018 but stayed on as a contributor. Her role as a contributor has been suspended until after the election. She was dubbed one of the “100 most influential Hispanics” by Hispanic Business Magazine and “Broadcaster of the Year” by the National Association of Hispanic Journalists in 2004.

Interestingly, Caruso-Cabrera actually penned a book that supported the idea of limited government called, You Know I’m Right: More Prosperity, Less Government.

The field of candidates eager to bounce AOC out of office is extensive, which shows there must be a lot of dissatisfaction with her performance, as otherwise, so many folks would not be jumping in the race against her.

A lot of the hate she faces is likely due to the botched Amazon deal she blew that cost her district $3 billion and tons of high paying jobs. That’s not a good way to win hearts and minds to your belief system.

Published

on

Comedian Tracy Morgan recently came to the defense of President Trump, saying that people who are criticizing his response to the coronavirus crisis should focus on supporting each other instead, especially while this outbreak is ongoing. Morgan spoke on the “Today” show Wednesday saying, “The struggle is real. People want to criticize the president, but imagine being a president of a country and have your country got sick. So, it’s difficult for him. We’ve all got to pull together as people, now.” “Now is not the time for blame and all these other things and anger. It’s here now. We just got to be together. We’ve got to all stay safe. Nobody wants to transmit it, nobody wants to attract it, nobody wants to get it. So, let’s just stay safe and do the protocol that we have to do,” Morgan went on to say. WATCH: https://twitter.com/kashjackson2018/status/1247530918799003648?s=21 Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: Democrats have slammed Trump for downplayingthe threat of the virus before it arrived in America and for a lack of leadership they say Trump has displayed since its arrival. Nearly 400,000 people in the United States have contracted the virus, and more than 12,000 people have died.

Nearly 400,000 people in the United States have contracted the virus, and more than 12,000 people have died. Morgan is spot on here. There’s far more constructing things we could be doing with our time right now than attacking President Trump. The leftist media has made this whole outbreak into an excuse for further ripping the country apart by slamming the president over and over again, especially about things he…

Nikki Haley Says Management Of Coronavirus Not Trump’s Responsibility, But Governors

Published

on

Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley recently stated that victories and failures in the battle against the coronavirus that has swept across the country in the last month falls on the shoulders of governors and is there responsibility to handle, not the president’s. And you know what, she’s absolutely right. Haley, who’s most recent posting included being a United States ambassador to the United Nations, penned a piece for the NY Times that was published on Wednesday that delved into the reasons why governors are the ones ultimately responsible for responding to the coronavirus crisis. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “In today’s crisis, governors from both parties have exemplified strong leadership,” she wrote. “They know their residents and their state’s needs better than anyone in the federal government. In the state-federal partnership, governors are in the best position to control what happens on the ground, better than any president could be.” Haley explained that governors are responsible for connecting federal efforts from organizations such as the Federal Emergency Management Agency to the cities and counties that have the most need. She added that governors are supposed to be aware of their states’ supplies for emergency situations and have the relationships with local leaders to best address the situation. “As our highest nationally elected leader, of course President Trump has enormous responsibility in this unprecedented crisis, and he is marshaling the federal response on a massive scale. But in implementing plans to save people’s lives and keep our economy afloat, look no further than the governors,” Haley penned. Haley went on to say that the coronavirus serves as a reminder of the importance of federalism and why it’s so critical to allow individual states and their governments to handle these sort of situations noting, “Governors are the most successful when…
