Ocasio-Cortez Says Middle Class Doesn’t Exist. The Numbers Tell a Very Different Story.

Published

Democratic Party candidate — and outspoken socialist — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been quoted as stating that the middle class in America no longer exists. This comment is, of course, utter foolishness as the numbers clearly indicate.

In fact, middle class incomes are continuing to rise, reaching the highest level ever, despite Ocasio-Cortez’s claim.

The median income for a household in the U.S. reached $61,732 in 2017, according to a U.S. Census Bureau report released Wednesday. The level, up 1.8 percent from the prior year, marks the third consecutive annual increase.

Breaking through the $61,000 mark is notable since it indicates the middle class is earning more than it did in 1999, reported The Washington Post. However, the Census Bureau heeds warning that the data point is not statistically significant.

The Census Bureau released its report only weeks after Ocasio-Cortez announced in August that she doesn’t believe the American middle class even exists.

“Politically, this upper middle class is probably more moderate,” Ocasio-Cortez said on the podcast “Pod Save America.” “But that upper middle class doesn’t exist anymore in America.”

The comment came as Ocasio-Cortez was responding to a question regarding rank-and-file Democrats’ hesitance to embrace socialism. Claiming that the Democratic establishment was stuck in “’90s politics,” she asserted that the middle class hasn’t existed since then.

The truth of the matter is, with more conservative policies being implemented through the Trump administration, the country’s economy is beginning to right itself, proving that those principles are rock solid truth.

Let’s hope that this success continues to increase and flow through every demographic in this great country of ours.

Video Evidence Confirms CNN President Told Employees to Push Trump ‘Impeachment’ Stories

This…is CNN.

If you want to claim that your network is fair and balanced and you only report the facts, then the president of the network shouldn’t be caught on video telling employees to push impeachment stories regarding President Trump. Then again, CNN hasn’t been a reliable news source for a long while now and ratings drive that point home on a regular basis. James O’Keefe has unveiled what just might be his most jaw-dropping video to date. And CNN can’t be thrilled about it. After all, it exposes their anti-Trump, anti-conservative bias once and for all – and it comes straight from the head honcho. At this rate, no matter how hard the left tries, it would appear Trump has 2020 all but in the bag. Great for America, bad for the left. But what’s bad in the eyes of the left is usually good for the left – they just can’t see it. Liberals. SMH. BREAKING: New leaked video from inside CNN: President Jeff Zucker tells employees to push “impeachment” and that all of CNN’s stories should be about “moves towards impeachment” One of CNN’s employees says Zucker has a “personal vendetta against Trump” https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1183780647522856960?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1183780647522856960&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F435181-project-veritas-video-cnns-jeff-zucker-directing-employees-to-push-impeachment%2F From Fox News: Undercover recordings made by an alleged ‘whistleblower’ capture CNN employees casually confirming the network’s anti-Trump bias and show company president Jeff Zucker telling top news executives to focus solely on impeachment even at the expense of other important news, according to the conservative activist group that posted the bombshell footage online. Project Veritas, whose founder, James O’Keefe, describes himself as a “guerrilla journalist” — built up the release on social media with an “#ExposeCNN” hashtag, and Monday published the first segment of what is billed as a multi-part series. The video features Cary Poarch, who claims he was a satellite uplink technician…

Discredited Steele Dossier Memos ‘Made Their Way Directly’ to Obama, Fusion GPS Founder Says

It’s 2016 all over again…

The Steele Dossier was bogus from the jump and everyone knew it. It was merely the Democrats’ first real attempt at doing what they could to discourage the American people from voting for Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton. Of course, Dems haven’t stopped doing everything they can to bring 45 down. It doesn’t matter that the economy is booming and unemployment numbers are at record lows. What matters is Trump = bad, and that’s never going to change. On Monday, some interesting news dropped from the founder of Fusion GPS. According to the founder, now-discredited Steele Dossier memos initially made their way to Barack Obama’s desk back in 2016. To some people, this is a big problem. To other people, men can grow their hair and and decide they are now women. BREAKING: In new book “Crime in Progress,” set for release next month, #Spygate archvillain Glenn Simpson reveals that he was first hired to investigate Trump in “the fall of 2015” and that memos from his now-discredited Steele dossier made their way directly “to President Obama” https://twitter.com/paulsperry_/status/1183816527725940737?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1183816527725940737&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Freport-fusion-gps-founder-reveals-steele-dossier-memos-made-it-all-the-way-to-president-obama%2F From Washington Examiner: Fusion GPS announced the November release date of a book on its 2016 investigation into Donald Trump’s ties to Russia, promising to shed new light on British ex-spy Christopher Steele’s dossier about the future president. The Washington, D.C.-based opposition research firm’s book, announced Monday, is expected to come a few weeks after release of a report into the origins of the investigation into Trump and Russia, which has shadowed his presidency since taking office in January 2017. Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report is expected to cover allegations of abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act by the FBI and the Department of Justice — including the government’s reliance on Steele’s dossier to obtain surveillance warrants from the…
