Before the “fund run” began, freshman Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) told participants, “We’re getting together for our own health, for our planet’s health … and to fight for the Green New Deal together.

But there’s a catch.

The participants did not know they were contributing to AOC’s 2020 re-election bid.

In other words, she scammed her way to the bank to the tune of $11,000.

From New York Post:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez held a 5k in Queens Saturday that she billed as “a Family Fun Run supporting U.S. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal on the Saturday following Earth Day.”

But many of the 400 runners didn’t realize their $30 registration fees were going directly into the lawmaker’s campaign coffers.

An AOC spokesman later confirmed, “It was a campaign fundraiser.

Environmentally conscious supporters — who jogged through Astoria Park alongside a beaming, strolling AOC — believed their money was going to help save the planet.

[…]

But by fudging the fact that those fees were actually campaign contributions, AOC may have enticed constituents into inadvertently breaking federal election laws.

One participant noted, “The site says it’s to benefit her environmental plan. If it is going to go directly to her campaign they should have said so.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi needs freshmen like Ilhan Omar (MN), Rashida Tlaib (MI), and, especially, Ocasio-Cortez, to know who is in charge of the Democrat Party.

Time after time Pelosi has put AOC in her place, with this latest barb going for the jugular.

Nancy literally – literally – said, a “glass of water with a ‘D’ next to it” could win Ocasio-Cortez’s district.

Pelosi noted, “This is about winning. When we have to go into the districts we have to win, we have to cull that to what we have in common with those people.

She added, “This glass of water would win with a ‘D’ next to it in those districts. But that’s not where we have to win elections.

WATCH:

Pelosi broke dozens of hearts by mocking freshman Ocasio-Cortez on “60 Minutes” with host, Lesley Stahl.

It was blatant. It was obvious.

In other words, Nancy needs AOC to know who is boss.

Stahl: “So you are contending with a group in Congress: Over here on the left flank are these self-described socialists, on the right, these moderates. And you yourself said that you’re the only one who can unify everybody. And the question is can you?

Pelosi: “By and large, whatever orientation they came to Congress with, they know that we have to hold the center. That we have to go down the mainstream.

Stahl: “You have these wings– AOC, and her group on one side–.

Pelosi: “That’s like five people.

And boom goes the dynamite!

OUCH! Five whole people, huh?

You just know that has to hurt Ocasio-Cortez’s feelings.

BLM Activists Suggests Waukesha Parade Massacre is Beginning of a ‘Revolution’

The left just cannot help themselves when it comes to promoting violence.

Published

on

As with any tragedy that occurs here in the United States, there are political and cultural organizations and individuals looking to spin the Waukesha Christmas parade massacre into something that selfishly behooves their cause, and these suggestions are growing more offensive by the day.

The latest allegation comes from a self-proclaimed “militant” with the Black Lives Matter movement, who believes that the event may be the start of something much larger.

A Milwaukee Black Lives Matter activist said the Christmas parade attack in Waukesha, Wisconsin, appears to signal “the revolution” may have begun.

“I don’t know. Now we’ll have to wait and see because they do have somebody in custody. We may have to wait and see what they say about why this happened,” Vaun Mayes said on Facebook Live on Monday. “But it sounds possible that the revolution has started in Wisconsin. It started with this Christmas parade.”

Mayes is a well-known activist in Milwaukee. He describes himself as a “Battle rapper, Community activist, Songwriter, Tattoo artist, Militant,” in his Twitter bio, which is accompanied by various hashtags, including “#BlackLivesMatter,” “#BlackLoveMatters” and “#RBG.”

Mayes would go on to parrot a largely-condemned suggestion that the attack was meant as revenge for the verdict in the Kyle Rittenhouse murder trial.

“I said I wasn’t going to speak on no rumors. Y’all are repeating some of the stuff that, you know, that has come up. And I can tell you that the initial person who reached out to me said that they believe that this has to do with the verdict, and so I made an assumption of which side it would be from, but I don’t know,” he added in the video, referring to the not-guilty verdict of Kyle Rittenhouse. The video was filmed at the scene of the parade attack.

These comments speak to a larger issue here in the US, in which many on the left side of the aisle are continuing to turn toward violent rhetoric, and away from the principles of liberty and justice for all.

Ukraine Accuses Russians of Plotting Coup for Next Week

The highly specific threat was made public just hours ago.

Published

on

For years now, Russia has been bullying the world.  From weapons tests to forced annexations to being the likely cause of “Havana Syndrome”, there is little doubt that Vladimir Putin and his Kremlin cronies are playing the role of the global villain without even the slightest amount of regret.

And, after spending years attempting to force Ukraine back into Russian control, the small nation’s President is now suggesting that some miscreants from Moscow are planning to stage a coup in his country.

Russia has denied any involvement after Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said Friday that an attempted coup d’etat is being planned in his country to take place next week.

Zelenskyy told reporters that Ukraine had uncovered a plot for an attempted coup and that Ukrainians and Russians were involved, The Washington Post reported. While he also spoke of a threat of military escalation from Russia, he fell short of accusing the Kremlin of an involvement in the planned coup, according to Reuters.

The Ukrainian President was not subtle in his statement, either.

“We have challenges not only from the Russian Federation and possible escalation – we have big internal challenges. I received information that a coup d’etat will take place in our country on Dec. 1-2,” Zelenskyy said, adding that his country was prepared for any escalation, Reuters reported.

While Putin and the Russians continue to deny their involvement, his reputation for mischief makes it all that much harder to take his rebukes seriously.
