Ocasio-Cortez Asked How She’ll Pay for $40 Trillion Programs, Response Is Priceless

This is the future of the Democrat Party…

A Gallup poll recently confirmed that most Democrats prefer socialism to capitalism.

Not only is that bad news for America, but it speaks volumes about sheer ignorance.

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) is a self-described Democrat Socialist.

In other words, she’s a flat-out socialist. Let’s cut the BS and call a spade a spade.

During her “60 Minutes” interview with Anderson Cooper, AOC was asked how she intends to pay for the $40 trillion in proposed big government programs of which she speaks about so highly.

She had no answer.

This marks the second time that Ocasio-Cortez was unable to explain how she would pay for the programs that she wants the government to pay for, with the other instance occurring during an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper.

Cooper: “How are you going to pay for all of this?

AOC: “No one asks how we’re gonna pay for this Space Force. No one asked how we paid for a $2 trillion tax cut We only ask how we pay for it on issues of housing, healthcare and education. How do we pay for it? With the same exact mechanisms that we pay for military increases for this Space Force. For all of these– ambitious policies.

Cooper: “There are Democrats, obviously, who are worried about your affect on the party. Democratic Senator Chris Coons, said about left-leaning Democrats, “If the next two years is just a race to offer increasingly unrealistic proposals, it’ll be difficult for us to make a credible case we should be allowed to govern again.

AOC: “What makes it unrealistic?

Cooper “How to pay for it.

AOC: “We pay more per capita in health care and education for lower outcomes than many other nations. And so for me, what’s unrealistic is– is what we’re living in right now.

Ocasio-Cortez thinks she gets picked on by conservatives because she’s young and female.

In other words, she feels that Republicans are misogynists.

Not the most original, is she?

Alexandria, could it be that you’re constantly called out because you say incredibly silly things?

For example, at a press conference for the far-left Sunshine Movement, Ocasio-Cortez compared her midterm election victory to the Civil Rights Movement.

It would be funny if it was meant to be parody.

WATCH:

She also thought her win was comparable to the moon landing.

From Daily Wire:

Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez rambled on Friday that her election victory was on par with the United States landing on the moon, something that she falsely thinks was a political victory for the Democrats over the Republicans.

AOC: “This is not just about a clean new deal. This is about a new deal for the United States of America.

Because in every moment when our country has reached the depths of darkness, in every moment when we were at the brink, at the cusp of an abyss and we did not know if we would be capable of saving ourselves, we have. We’ve done it. We’ve dug deep and we’ve done what we thought was impossible.

Former Governor Mike Huckabee had some thoughts:

Here’s another wild clip featuring the gaffe-prone Democrat Socialist:

AOC also needs everyone to know that “people are going to die” if something isn’t done about climate change.

Maybe Alexandria didn’t get the message that large outfits often falsify their data to make it seem as if things are worse than they are?

Ugh. It’s going to be a long two years covering this one.

Alexandria is apparently looking for attention, sending what was clearly a bold-faced lie on Twitter.

See it:

What’s the problem?

Republican consultant Arthur Schwartz has the answer:

Facepalm.

Ocasio-Cortez said that she couldn’t afford to land an apartment in DC until her Congressional paycheck kicked in.

I have three months without a salary before I’m a member of Congress. So, how do I get an apartment? Those little things are very real.

She lied then, too.

From Daily Wire:

As Fox News reports, “Records show she has more than enough to plunk down on an apartment in the U.S. capital.” Fox News adds that Ocasio-Cortez “reported having between $15,001 and $50,000 in her checking account as of the end of April 2018, according to a Financial Disclosure Report she submitted to the clerk of the U.S. House of Representatives. The financial disclosure also reveals that she has an investment account valued between $1,001 and $15,000.”

[…]

That minimum of $15,000 that Ocasio-Cortez had in the bank is 15 times the amount 57% of average Americans had in their savings, as USA Today reported in May 2018. USA Today stated, “The average American has less than $4,000 in savings, while 57% of U.S. adults have less than $1,000 to their names.”

Like all elected members of Congress, Ocasio-Cortez will earn $174,000 annually.

…In other Ocasio-Cortez-related news…

She knows exactly how to combat “climate change.”

It involves World War II.

Specifically, it involves the blueprint used by the allied forces to defeat the Nazis.

WATCH:

Maybe AOC should check out this report (hyperlinked), in which a NASA scientist warns of strange solar activity and record cold.

Al Gore has been pushing his “climate change” agenda for the better part of two decades now.

In that time, he has benefitted financially to the tune of millions.

With just one new report, President Trump has something to say to the failed presidential candidate and former VP that should shut him up for a while.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, greenhouse gas emissions dropped nearly 3% in Trump’s first year in office.

From Daily Wire:

When President Trump pulled the U.S. out of the Paris Climate Accords, liberals went ape nuts. America, they said, had just signed the death decree of the world. Al Gore moved to the South Pole and built an igloo.

But a funny thing happened on the way to the end of the world. Instead of America causing irreversible global warming, harmful greenhouses gases that some scientists say causes climate change actually decreased during Trump’s first year in office, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reported.

EPA acting administrator Andrew Wheeler noted: “Thanks to President Trump’s regulatory reform agenda, the economy is booming, energy production is surging, and we are reducing greenhouse gas emissions from major industrial sources. These achievements flow largely from technological breakthroughs in the private sector, not the heavy hand of government. The Trump Administration has proven that federal regulations are not necessary to drive CO2 reductions. While many around the world are talking about reducing greenhouse gases, the U.S. continues to deliver, and today’s report is further evidence of our action-oriented approach.”

NYPD Officer Involved In Death Of Eric Garner Learns His Fate

This is not going to sit well with liberals.

Published

on

The New York City police officer who was involved with the July 17, 2014 death of Eric Garner has learned his fate, and it’s probably going to send the radical left into absolute hysterics. The Department of Justice will not bring charges against Officer Daniel Pantaleo. Here are the details from TheBlaze: The Black Lives Matter movement called for justice in Garner’s death, saying that the use of a choke hold was a disproportionate response to the alleged illegal sale of cigarettes. The police union has contested that what Pantaleo did was a “seat-belt hold” not a choke hold, a crucial difference since the NYPD prohibits the use of choke holds by officers. A grand jury had already decided not to indict Pantaleo. New York City paid Garner’s family a $5.9 million settlement in 2015. The Department of Justice did not make any decision in this case. Rather, it plans to let the time expire on the five-year window that it had to bring charges against Pantaleo before the statute of limitations protects him from prosecution. Those five years are up on Wednesday. The only remaining punishment that Pantaleo could face at this point comes from the NYPD itself, which is still conducting a disciplinary proceeding. This is news that most definitely is going to spark some sort of protesting, hopefully without violence, as we all know how deeply divided the country is right now along racial lines. Whether or not this officer is actually responsible for Garner’s death is something we may not ever really know, despite the video evidence that exists. Not everything is so black and white. Let’s hope cooler heads prevail and people are able and willing to have civil discussions on the topic.

Social Media Launches Hateful Attacks On Hispanic Woman Working As Customs Officer

Shameful.

Published

on

A woman who reportedly works as a customs officer for the U.S. government has come under heavy attack from radicals on the left for being a Hispanic female in immigration enforcement. Because apparently, since she’s Hispanic, she should automatically be sympathetic to those illegally crossing the border. Sounds pretty racist, doesn’t it? From TheBlaze: Kiara Cervantes, a young Latina woman claiming to work as a customs officer, is taking fire from the internet after she became known as #ICEBae on Twitter. Cervantes, who was reportedly one agent proving security for Vice President Mike Pence during a recent U.S. border visit, went viral on the internet after a photo of her standing outside a detainment center hit the internet. According to Newsweek, which asked which agency she belongs to, “Cervantes said she could not provide any comment until she has spoken with her ’employer.'” On Monday, she tweeted about the attention — which came in waves. She also shared a photo of herself in her uniform to Twitter, with a waving emoji. According to the New York Post, Cervantes wrote, “Just woke up … saw that I needed to make a video so y’all could believe that it’s me. It’s me — I’m a Customs officer based in Texas and yeah, I don’t know what else to say.” Later on Monday, she tweeted, “WOW I am in awe. Thank you all for the support! My job is so hectic at this moment but I am grateful. I love protecting my country! … And I love my supporters!” https://twitter.com/kiarace24/status/1150920190043000832 As is often the case in these types of situations, Cervantes spent a good majority of the day responding to these miscreants. “I can’t agree with concentration camps,” she wrote. “But … this station in particular isn’t meant to be a holding facility…
