Ocasio Cortez Goes Off Script for Nazi-Climate Comparison

Another week, another instance of the liberal starlet sticking her foot directly into her mouth.

With the midterm elections merely 14 days away, the political climate in these United States is bound to turn absurd.

Well, that is to say that it could turn far more absurd than it already has been.

In this, the Trump Era, we have grown accustomed to hearing some of the dos ridiculous claims possible, often emanating from the corporately controlled media and the liberal actors to whom they cater.  To compound this insanity, the left’s millennial voter base has been given nearly carte blanche by the democratic party to say and do as they please, given that the Dems are relying almost wholly on the idea that these young Americans will actually head out to the polls in two weeks.

Banking on this idea is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a democratic socialist from New York City whose campaign appearances have opened her up to a number of succinct criticisms over her fitness for office, particularly as it pertains to her ability to keep her foot out of her mouth.

Democratic Socialist candidate for the House of Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said in a video that reaching the goal of 100 percent renewable energy to fight climate change requires the same urgency and mobilization in the United States as it did to fight Nazi Germany during World War II.

Calling Nazi Germany the last “existential threat” the United States has faced, Ocasio-Cortez ignored more recent threats, including radical Islam’s attack on U.S soil that killed almost 3,000 innocent Americans on September 11, 2001.

“So when we talk about existential threats — the last time we had a really major existential threat in this country was around World War II,” Ocasio said in a video filmed at an undated campaign at an unknown location.

This is, of course, not the only absurd comparison that we’ve been forced to endure regarding the Nazis and our current political climate, with the left constantly insinuating that Donald Trump is somehow akin to Adolf Hitler.

Allen West Sees Issue of Sovereignty in Biden Border Bungle

He’s not wrong!

As soon as Joe Biden was announced as the next President of these United States, migrants began working their way toward the US in droves. Democrats have long been seen as a more lenient bunch when it comes to immigration, and the Biden administration was thought to be a golden window of opportunity for many who had felt otherwise during Donald Trump’s reign. But the impact of this perception of the federal government is having major ramifications at the state level, and local lawmakers are not happy about it. Lt. Col. Allen West praised Gov. Greg Abbott on “Fox & Friends,” Thursday, for recognizing the border crisis in Texas and discussing plans to build a wall. The Texas GOP chairman said that, along with border construction, an increased presence of National Guard troops is essential for blocking cartel activity and drugs from coming into the U.S. ALLEN WEST: “I’m glad that the governor has finally realized that we do have an incredible crisis at the border. It’s been about six months and there have been a lot of Texans that have been suffering under this scourge of illegal immigration coming across. But building a border wall is just part of what needs to happen. We need to have a full mobilization of our National Guard, Texas National Guard down along that border so that they can secure these infiltration routes and they can enter the crossings that we see coming from these cartels and the flow of drugs and persons as well.” And then. “I think one of the important things we have to do going forward is to look at the system that is allowing this illegal immigration to happen, especially the use of the cartels. But also we’ve got to understand the constitutional crisis of having a federal…

Florida Governor Makes Good on Promise to Pardon COVID ‘Criminals’

There is justice in The Sunshine State.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has made it very, very clear that The Sunshine State is not, and was not ever, in favor of curbing Americans’ freedoms on account of the coronavirus pandemic. Sure, there were some locales, (like Miami), who imposed curfews and other measures meant to crack down on some of the over partying during Spring Break, but even those moves were given the side-eye by DeSantis. Now the Florida leader is taking this sentiment a step farther. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and the state’s Clemency Board granted pardons Wednesday for Floridians with lingering fines issued for violating mask mandates implemented by local governments. “This action is necessary so that we can recover, have a good transition to normal operations, and also just a recognition that a lot of this stuff was way, way overboard,” DeSantis said. Democratic candidate for governor Nikki Fried was the only member on the board to oppose the pardons, according to local news outlet Fox 13. “I voted today to uphold our laws, while our so-called pro-law enforcement governor is actively encouraging people to break the law with politically motivated stunts like this,” Fried said in a statement following a Wednesday clemency board meeting. DeSantis is widely believed to have grander political aspirations, and this high-profile declaration of liberty is undoubtedly going to benefit his PR strategy as well.
