Ocasio-Cortez Subtly Promotes Political Tyranny, Blasting Bipartisanship

Somehow, the big, bad, evil corporations profit when our elected officials compromise?



Alexandria Ocasio Cortez

On the far left end of the Democratic Party, a sleeping giant is waking.

The progressive posses, led by “The Squad” in recent months, is looking to swiftly and sternly take control of the entire organization in the coming years.  They are sick and tired of moderates within the party, and they are sick of waiting for them to age out of the political ecosystem.

No, they’re going on the offensive now, and House Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is on the front line, demanding that compromise be seen as a last resort when dealing with the Republican Party.

Ocasio-Cortez appeared alongside her fellow House colleague Rep. Seth Moulton, D-Mass., in a Thursday interview in which she was asked about her concerns about a potential bipartisan infrastructure deal with a smaller price tag than what has been proposed by her party and President Biden.

The New York congresswoman responded that bipartisan deals don’t fully serve communities that are already being underserved and that the deals serve corporate interests.

“Usually, I have to say representing the Bronx and Queens, when these bipartisan deals come together, they tend to underserve the communities that are already underserved,” Ocasio-Cortez said in the interview. “Places like the south Bronx, Baltimore, areas of Chicago, across the country.”

The former bartender then blamed big bad wealthy corporations for somehow ruining collaboration.

“Not only do those communities get left behind and cut out in these bipartisan deals, but corporate interests get centered in these deals, as well,” she continued.

Ocasio-Cortez said that Democrats should prioritize “passing the deal that helps working people the most,” creates jobs, betters infrastructure, reduces climate emissions and raises wages.

Of course, with AOC, this could all be a designed and premeditated “controversy” meant to elicit clicks.


Fleeing Texas Democrat Now Facing Arrest Warrant

Play stupid games win stupid prizes.



Instead of accepting defeat in the state legislature, the Democrats of the Texas statehouse decided that they’d simply whisk themselves away to Washington DC to prevent a vote on an election integrity bill to occur. This was the second time they had pulled a stunt like this in less than a year, and Texas Governor Greg Abbott has now said that these lawmakers will be arrested upon their reentry to Texas, and taken to the legislature to make certain that the vote occurs. Now it seems as though members of the Texas GOP are making good on Abbott’s promise. Speaker of the House Dade Phelan (R-Beaumont) signed a civil arrest warrant on Monday for State Representative Philip Cortez (D-San Antonio) for his failure to return to the House of Representatives, the Texas Tribune reported. Cortez abandoned his fellow Democrats late last week when he unexpectedly returned to Texas. Cortez claimed he returned to Austin to attempt to engage in a “good faith dialogue” on the matter of House Bill 3, the election law reform bill. After receiving harsh criticism from fellow Democrats for returning to Austin without consulting them, Cortez returned to Washington, D.C. The San Antonio Democrat currently serves as chairman of the House Urban Affairs Committee. Speaker Phelan issued a statement saying, in part, that Cortez had “irrevocably broken my trust and the trust of the chamber.” The speaker added that Cortez “represented to me and his fellow members that he wanted to work on policy and find solutions to bring his colleagues back to Texas.” The bill in question has been criticized by Texas Democrats as unfairly prohibitive to communities of color, while the GOP says that the law would simply strengthen the security of the election itself, in an effort to prevent fraud from occurring.

Liz Cheney Takes Aim at Trump During Opening Statement at Jan 6 Hearing

She’s still claiming this is “nonpartisan”, however.



The Republican Party has made it very clear that they are not interested in any sort of re-trial of Donald Trump in regard to the events of January 6th, and that any attempt to steer an investigation his direction would be considered bit of partisan tomfoolery on behalf of those who engage in such speculation. Therein lies the problem for the Nancy Pelosi-led special committee on January 6th, in that they can’t afford to be considered a partisan affair, but they are almost certainly itching for a chance to attack the former Commander in Chief. Liz Cheney, one of the few Republicans involved in the current probe, wasted no time in going there on Tuesday, however. “The American people deserve the full and open testimony of every person with knowledge of the planning and preparation for January 6th,” Cheney said in her opening statement. The Wyoming Republican has gone on record for criticizing her GOP colleagues for supporting the former president — whom many say incited his supporters to attack the Capitol — and undermining an investigation into the events of Jan. 6. She was voted out of her role as chair of the House Republican Conference in May as a result. And then… “We must also know what happened every minute of that day in the White House – every phone call, every conversation, every meeting leading up to, during, and after the attack. Honorable men and women have an obligation to step forward,” Cheney said. Tuesday’s hearing featured the testimony of a number of police officers who were involved in attempting to stop the insurrection that occurred that day, and set the tone for a heated and lengthy probe to come.
