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.”

US Embassy in Iraq Nearly Leveled by Rocket as Iran Tensions Soar

Mike Pompeo’s recent warning to US staff in the region is looking more prophetic by the minute.

Last week’s warning to US workers in Iraq could not have come a moment too soon, apparently. Due to increasingly hostile actions by the government of Iran, US officials last week demanded that non-essential American personnel leave the country of Iraq for feat that the regime in Tehran would soon launch a series of attacks.  As it turns out, this was far more prophetic than anyone could have imagined because, just days later, a rocket has nearly leveled the US Embassy in Baghdad. A rocket was fired into the Iraqi capital Baghdad’s heavily fortified Green Zone, which houses government buildings and diplomatic missions, on Sunday night, falling near the U.S. Embassy but causing no casualties, the Iraqi military said. The attack came two weeks after U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned Iraqi leaders during a surprise visit to Baghdad that if they failed to keep in check Iran-backed militias, which are expanding their power in Iraq and now form part of its security apparatus, the United States would respond with force. His visit came after U.S. intelligence showed Iran-backed Shi’ite militias positioning rockets near bases housing U.S. forces, according to two Iraqi security sources. There have been no claims of responsibility as of yet for the attack. Saudi Arabian officials have linked two recent attacks on their oil industry to Iran; one aerial drone attack on an oil pipeline, and a sophisticated underwater attack using makeshift torpedoes that damaged four ships. US President Donald Trump is hoping to stay out of conflict with Iran, but has warned that any action taken by the US will be swift and stern.

Adam Schiff Predictably Pounces on Republican’s Call for Impeachment

While the tide may be turning in Congress, Nancy Pelosi continues to stonewall her own constituents.

Adam Schiff

As the dysfunction in DC reaches dire new heights, some who were previously loyal to President Trump have taken a turn. On the left, the idea of impeachment has been around since before Donald Trump even took office.  The simple fact that he was running for President was enough to have democrats working toward some sort of “back up plan” to oust him should he win. And when he did, the entirety of the left side of the aisle went up in flames. Now after two years of Trump in the Oval Office, the democrats are still trying to remove him, or nullify the results of the 2016 election by casting fears of Russian meddling into the public realm. One of the loudest voices in this anti-Presidential fracas has been Adam Schiff, who today latched onto a surprising republican call for impeachment. Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said his House of Representatives colleague Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) declaring President Donald Trump had engaged in “impeachable conduct” was courageous. Schiff said, “What the speaker has referred to and I have as well is can impeachment be successful in the Senate? We see no signs of that yet. I respect what Justin Amash is doing has said he showed more courage than any other Republican in the House or Senate. But what may be pushing us in the direction of impeachment in any event has less to do with Justin Amash but more the administration is engaging in a maximum obstructionism campaign.” Amash became the first prominent republican to publicly state his belief that Donald Trump has engaged in “impeachable” offenses. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has rebuked any and all talk of impeachment, furthering infuriating an already hysterical democratic base.
