Democrat Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) could be in very, very big trouble, along with her chief of staff.

Will the media care?

That’s the big question.

Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti obtained majority control of Justice Democrats PAC in December 2017, according to archived copies of the group’s website, and the two appear to retain their control of the group, according to corporate filings obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation. If the Federal Election Commission (FEC) finds that the New York Democrat’s campaign operated in affiliation with the PAC, which had raised more than $1.8 million before her June 2018 primary, it would open them up to “massive reporting violations, probably at least some illegal contribution violations exceeding the lawful limits,” former FEC commissioner Brad Smith said.

Ocasio-Cortez never disclosed to the FEC that she and Chakrabarti, who served as her campaign chair, controlled the PAC while it was simultaneously supporting her primary campaign, and former FEC commissioners say the arrangement could lead to multiple campaign finance violations. The group backed 12 Democrats during the 2018 midterms, but Ocasio-Cortez was the only one of those to win her general election.

Continued:

“If the facts as alleged are true, and a candidate had control over a PAC that was working to get that candidate elected, then that candidate is potentially in very big trouble and may have engaged in multiple violations of federal campaign finance law, including receiving excessive contributions,” former Republican FEC commissioner Hans von Spakovsky told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

And fellow former FEC commissioner Brad Smith told TheDCNF that if “a complaint were filed, I would think it would trigger a serious investigation.” He also noted that such a probe could potentially result in jail time for Ocasio-Cortez and her chief of staff, Chakrabarti.

Ocasio-Cortez rushed to the defense of embattled Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar after she tweeted an anti-Semitic remark.

Correction: after she tweeted another anti-Semitic remark.

From Daily Wire:

Ocasio-Cortez’s defense of Omar came after Omar’s latest anti-Semitic incident over the weekend when Omar “displayed her blatant anti-Semitism by tweeting that GOP support for Israel was ‘all about the Benjamins,’ and followed by accusing AIPAC of paying American politicians to support Israel,” The Daily Wire reported.

Ocasio-Cortez, who has a long history of walking lockstep with anti-Semites, waited a couple of days to weigh in on Omar’s anti-Semitic comments, which drew widespread condemnation from both sides of the aisle.

Ocasio-Cortez tweeted:

Unlike this President, Rep. @IlhanMN demonstrated a capacity to acknowledge pain & apologize, use the opportunity to learn abt history of antisemitism,+grow from it while clarifying her stance.

I’m also inspired by Jewish leadership who brought her in, not push her out, to heal.

AOC is “proud” of Omar:

Lots of people here proclaiming to be “woke” trying to police communities on what they are/aren’t allowed to be upset by.

I’m proud @IlhanMN raised the issue of lobbyist 💰 in politics & equally proud of her sensitivity to communities. Both are possible.

Omar showed no shame after responding to a series of tweets from journalist Glenn Greenwald.

LOOK:

Enter Omar with the anti-Semitic stereotype:

AG Barr Tackles Far-Left Extremism; Says Media Is Censoring What’s Going On And Americans Are Being Lied To

Published

on

Attorney General William Barr is one of those people that President Trump has surrounded himself with that is much like him in very important ways that are desperately needed in the current political climate. Barr is a man unafraid to speak the truth. He’s not easily intimidate by the leftist media and he’s always ready and willing to call them out for their nonsense, which is precisely what he’s done concerning the topic of how the media has covered radical left-wing extremism. The attorney general conducted an interview with Fox News host Mark Levin on Sunday and stated the mainstream media is lying to the public about the extent of far-left violence exploding in streets across the country. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “We have the citizen reporters, who have these videos of these events, which are quite different than what we get a lot of times from the media, which seems to be censoring the violence,” Levin said to Barr. “No?” “Absolutely. Their narrative – they are projecting a narrative,” Barr said. “When the word narrative came into currency, I knew we were in trouble, because the word narrative really suggests that there’s no objective truth. There’s no real story of what happened, it’s just everyone has their own narrative.” “And you get to then – the press can justify presenting a story that doesn’t really correspond to objective truth, but it’s our narrative. We have a narrative, you have a narrative,” Barr continued. “I’ve been appalled at — on this violence, because it’s happening right out in the streets, anyone with eyes can see what’s happening. They see the violence.” “They see these groups of agitators in their black outfits and their helmets and their shields, which incidentally have the hammer and sickle on them most of…

Massive Rioting And Looting Rocks Chicago After Police-Involved Shooting

Published

Will this nonsense ever just end? How much more violence, rioting, and looting can this country handle before it shatters and folks get super tribal? We’re all ready divided, yet it doesn’t seem this stuff is going to be quelled any time soon. There are now videos circulating online that show widespread rioting, looting, and other forms of violence erupting all throughout the city of Chicago in light of a police-involved shooting that left a young man wounded. Social media users on various platforms posted up videos of people in the city looting Walgreens, Macy’s, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, among many other stores. There was even an exchange of gunfire between looters and police at some point during the evening. No officers were harmed. Check out the details from Fox News: “Absolute chaos in downtown Chicago with more overnight looting and vandalism in the Loop,” tweeted Ryan Baker, an anchor for WBBM-TV. “Appears to be coordinated effort with minimal police presence.” https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1292753400388415489 The Chicago Police Department did not immediately respond to an email from Fox News. The unrest began Sunday afternoon, after police responded to a report of a man with a gun in the city’s Englewood neighborhood. While pursuing that individual on foot, he “turned and fired shots” at officers before being struck himself and taken to a local hospital, Deputy Chief Delonda Tally told Fox 32 Chicago. A crowd that had gathered at the scene then faced off against police and started hurling objects at officers after getting agitated over a false rumor that the suspect – who is in his late teens or early 20s – was a child, investigators add. https://twitter.com/TomAhernCPD/status/1292592711271362566 As of this writing, the condition of the individual who was shot is not known. Chicago’s Civilian Office of Police Accountability has officially launched an investigation…
