New York Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has a question about election day and Columbus Day she can’t seem to figure out on her own.

Not only is it ridiculous, but conservatives took notice.

See her tweet:

By the looks of the picture below, she’s not making friends right off the bat.

Pic of the year?

Alexandria is apparently looking for attention, sending what was clearly a bold-faced lie on Twitter.

See it:

What’s the problem?

Republican consultant Arthur Schwartz has the answer:

Facepalm.

Ocasio-Cortez said that she couldn’t afford to land an apartment in DC until her Congressional paycheck kicked in.

I have three months without a salary before I’m a member of Congress. So, how do I get an apartment? Those little things are very real.

She lied then, too.

From Daily Wire:

As Fox News reports, “Records show she has more than enough to plunk down on an apartment in the U.S. capital.” Fox News adds that Ocasio-Cortez “reported having between $15,001 and $50,000 in her checking account as of the end of April 2018, according to a Financial Disclosure Report she submitted to the clerk of the U.S. House of Representatives. The financial disclosure also reveals that she has an investment account valued between $1,001 and $15,000.”

[…]

That minimum of $15,000 that Ocasio-Cortez had in the bank is 15 times the amount 57% of average Americans had in their savings, as USA Today reported in May 2018. USA Today stated, “The average American has less than $4,000 in savings, while 57% of U.S. adults have less than $1,000 to their names.”

Like all elected members of Congress, Ocasio-Cortez will earn $174,000 annually.

…In other Ocasio-Cortez-related news…

She knows exactly how to combat “climate change.”

It involves World War II.

Specifically, it involves the blueprint used by the allied forces to defeat the Nazis.

WATCH:

Maybe AOC should check out this report, in which a NASA scientist warns of strange solar activity and record cold.

In an odd twist, Ocasio-Cortez will not endorse a Sanders 2020 White House bid.

From Fox News:

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic socialist congressional candidate who has spent weeks campaigning with fellow socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders, on Thursday refused to endorse his prospective candidacy in the 2020 presidential race.

Here’s an interview with Ocasio-Cortez where she claims capitalism won’t always exist:

Airline Kicks Family Off Flight After Toddler Removes Mask During Asthma Attack

Unbelievable.

Published

on

At times, it is easy to see why some of us are losing faith in humanity as a whole.

Somewhere in the mix, we’ve all turned cold and calculated.  Mathematically prepared for litigation at all times.  We’re robotic in our understanding of the rules and consequences, but all the while shunning common sense and the idea that decency often depends on extenuating circumstances.

Such was the case this week on an American Airlines flight.

A mother and her 2-year-old son were forced to deplane an American Airlines flight on Monday after the child would not keep a mask on.

Amanda Pendarvis posted to her Instagram story that she, her young son and her mother were removed from the flight. Pendarvis said her son was having an asthma attack at the time.

Flight 1284 returned to its gate at the Dallas-Fort Worth airport before departing for Colorado after the party refused to “comply with crew member instructions to remain seated while on an active taxiway and to wear face coverings securely over their nose and mouth,” American Airlines said in a statement to FOX Business.

The company attempted to shift the blame in a statement.

The airline said crew members were never made aware that the child was having an asthma attack or issues breathing. Additionally, the passengers were not addressed for failure to comply with face-covering requirements at any point while administering treatment, according to the carrier.

The move comes amid a heated national debate on COVID-19 precautions, and among a populace who is growing ever more irate with the idea of remaining masked indefinitely.

His silence has been characterized as vile.

Published

The nation has been gripped by a strange and potentially tragic story about a couple, their cross-country road trip, and now a mission young woman.

Gabby Petito was traveling from coast to coast across America, chronicling her “vanning” lifestyle on social media, all with her partner Brian Laundrie.  At some point during the trip, Gabby stopped posting and Brian came back home.

And that’s all we really know.  Brian, on the advice of his lawyers, is not cooperating with police or Gibby’s family.

Now, her parents are publicly pleading with Brian for help in bringing their daughter home.

Gabby Petito’s stepfather, Jim Schmidt, called out his stepdaughter’s fiancé for not cooperating with authorities or assisting the investigation.

“You say she’s the love of your life. She’s missing. You were on a trip with her, but you have no comment. You have nothing to say and you’re hiding behind an attorney,” he told Fox News on Thursday.

“I understand the constitutional rights that people have, but you have pieces to this puzzle that we need to find Gabby and you’re withholding them from us.”

Police have revealed that the two were in contact with police during their trip, after a domestic argument resulted in a call to local law enforcement.

The silence of Laundrie has been a sharply criticized decision, and many around the country find the choice to be a vile one.
