Ocasio-Cortez Continues Radical Leftist Lurch with Gun-Grab Propaganda

An armed American public is certainly capable of “killing people”, as AOC tweeted, but if those people are a hostile, authoritarian force, her proposal would sentence the American people to death…or worse.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

There is little doubt that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is pushing the democratic party hard to the left.

The 28 year old bartender-turned-Congresswoman has been a left-leaning fireball of vitriol from the moment that she stepped onto the national political scene, often gaslighting herself by playing up her radical nature on social media in order to combat the “trolls” that she so often demeans.

With 2020 on the horizon, and one of the leading contenders for the democratic nomination already having admitted to eating “regenerative”, magical dirt, the sort of insanity that AOC injects into Washington DC may seem par for the course.

The reality is, however, that it is dangerous.

With Ocasio-Cortez capturing the imaginations of young democrats everywhere, 2020 candidates will likely need to appease her own fringe base in order to gather the necessary votes to make an impact on the race.  And that means, unfortunately, that the young Congresswoman’s anti-constitutional stance on firearms could go mainstream.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) suggests Congress should ban “semiautos, & high cap mags.”

She also called for a ban on bump stocks, which the Department of Justice banned in December 2018.

AOC was reacting to a bizarre incident at an Indiana school where teachers were shot by police with air pistols during an active shooter drill.

AOC’s call to ban “semiautos” is particularly disturbing, considering that a vast majority of all weapons in America are semi-automatic, meaning that one pull of the trigger will send one round through the barrel.

Furthermore, the insinuation that guns could be used to “kill people” isn’t new and horrific, despite how bluntly AOC included the phrase in her tweet.

We must remember that the Second Amendment, and the firearms that it protects, are the nation’s insurance policy against tyranny from both foreign and domestic sources.  Disarming the American people, even in the slightest, must remain an unacceptable and unfathomable dream of the democrats if the nation is to maintain its freedom.

An armed American public is certainly capable of “killing people”, but if those people are a hostile, authoritarian force, Ocasio-Cortez would rather sentence the American people to certain death that allow freedom to prevail.

And that’s dangerous in ways that AOC can’t possibly understand.

President Trump Pushes For Massive $2 Trillion Infrastructure Bill To Be ‘Phase 4’ Coronavirus Relief Package

Published

on

President Trump is advocating for Congress to adopt what he callas a “very big and bold” infrastructure investment in future legislation to help fight against the coronavirus, which is currently making thousands of people seriously ill all across the country. The president advocated for a $2 trillion addition to the congressional economic relief bills that are to help workers and businesses who are suffering during this unprecedented pandemic. Trump has stated that he hopes to stimulate employment through a number of federal programs. Here’s more from Washington Examiner: “With interest rates for the United States being at ZERO, this is the time to do our decades long awaited Infrastructure Bill. It should be VERY BIG & BOLD, Two Trillion Dollars, and be focused solely on jobs and rebuilding the once great infrastructure of our Country! Phase 4,” Trump tweeted. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1245000074167541761 Before the historic relief package was passed last week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said lawmakers must begin drafting a fourth relief package to deal with the coronavirus pandemic, arguing that the bill that was making its way through Congress was insufficient to address the needs of state and local governments, workers, and other entities affected by the spread of the virus. The economic consequences of the actions we’ve taken in order to fight against this virus have caused quite a stir among the American people, with some folks stating that perhaps the measures taken to stop the spread of the illness are actually going to end up doing more harm than good. Many businesses will be closed permanently due to the shutdown and many others out of work will slide into a hole financially speaking. Perhaps a better measure would’ve been to quarantine those who are sick and allow the young and healthy to remain working? Then again, this disease…

N.H. Gov. Sununu Seeks Disaster Declaration For His State; Extends ‘Stay Home’ Order To May 4

The state of New Hampshire is seeking to receive a federal disaster declaration in order to receive additional help that will aid in alleviating the suffering of the citizenry during the coronavirus outbreak that is sweeping the country. Gov. Chris Sununu and the state of New Hampshire are currently set to receive $1.25 billion from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act that was passed into law by Congress last week. Many residents have suffered massive economic stress due to losing their jobs and are set to receive additional unemployment benefits to help offset their current hardships. Here’s more on this from Washington Examiner: The governor signed the Relief for Workers Affected by Coronavirus Act agreement that will give the state 100 percent funding from the federal government for unemployment benefits. Unemployed New Hampshire residents will receive an additional $600 a week in addition to the minimum benefit amount of $32 to $168 a week. The unemployment benefit period will be extended from 26 weeks to 39 weeks. Gov. Sununu recently released a statement saying, “We are making every effort to provide assistance to families who are out of work during this time so that they can focus on what is most important – caring for their families and protecting their health by staying home.” New Hampshire will also be extending business tax collections and interests and dividend payments all the way to June 15. This particular measure is going to impact roughly 98 percent of small businesses and interest and dividend taxpayers. The “stay at home” order the governor issued last week has been made effective until May 4 to help contain the spread of the illness, as well as continuing to keep kids out of school. The state has suspended all standardized testing as of Monday. “While…
