Not one. Not two. Not three. Not four…sounding like LeBron James over here when he signed with the Miami Heat.

13.

That’s how much money Americans would be paying PER GALLON if Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal” became a reality.

From Washington Examiner:

The socialistic Green New Deal, pushed by New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and winning broad support from Democratic presidential candidates could lead to a $10 increase on a single gallon of gas, according to a new study of the so-called “carbon tax” and the liberal bid to rid vehicles that burn fossil fuels.

The CO2 Coalition’s study, mostly focused on the government’s effort to assign an environmental price on the future “Social Cost of Carbon,” also looked at the ultimate goal of liberals to rid gas-powered autos, key to the Green New Deal.

[…]

The result: A $10 per gallon gas tax and final price of some $13, or about the cost of shifting to EVs, about $2,700. “That is the economic breaking point of driving gas-powered cars,” he said.

Ocasio Cortez…(pause to take a breath from laughing)…thought she was attacking the GOP.

Instead, she proved how ignorant she truly is by not knowing that Rep. John Yarmouth is a Democrat.

If this isn’t an instant classic than nothing is!

From Daily Wire:

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) tried to suggest a “GOP” lawmaker was being creepy for taking a picture next to a poster cutout of her and ended up being widely mocked for not realizing that the lawmaker was actually a Democrat.

The Kentucky Republican Party posted a picture of Rep. John Yarmuth (D-KY) next to a cutout poster of Ocasio-Cortez in a tweet, writing: “#ThrowbackThursday last month the socialists threatened the lone #Kentucky #Democrat in Congress if he didn’t bend to their radical, extremist will: looks like @AOC and #socialism are calling the shots for @KyDems now!”

AOC’s response:

YIKES!

Right before the screw up, AOC was doing what she does best: blasting Republicans on Twitter.

LOOK:

To avoid looking completely + utterly out of touch w/ the reality our prison system:

Instead of asking, “Should the Boston Bomber have the right to vote?”

Try, “Should a nonviolent person stopped w/ a dime bag LOSE the right to vote?”

Bc that question reflects WAY more people.

Reminder:
– Slavery ➡️ Jim Crow + Redlining ➡️ War on Drugs ➡️ Mass Incarceration

– Black Americans & PoC are far more likely to be convicted + sentenced longer than White Americans for similar crimes.

– Our system routinely criminalizes poverty + exonerates wealth

Many rebut the voting question by saying, “Well, *those* people shouldn’t be jailed.”

Glad you feel that way! But the truth is, the US incarcerates more people per capita than anywhere in the world – even more than China.

Our system is built to disenfranchise people of color ⬇️

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Two Men Break Into Texas Man’s Home Before Dawn. It’s A Huge Mistake And You Already Know Why.

God bless Texas.

Published

A homeowner in Nacogdoches, Texas was forced to defend his home from intruders, one of whom was carrying a pistol. As you can probably imagine, with this story having unfolded in Texas, these two punks learned you don’t mess with a man’s home, especially in the Lone Star state. This, ladies and gentlemen, is precisely why we have the Second Amendment and why we need to fight hard against the liberals who want to strip us of our right to bear arms. Gun control laws don’t stop bad guys from getting guns. They just create more victims of violence instead. Here’s more from TheBlaze: After the single shot, both men apparently no longer felt welcome and bolted from the home, KYTX noted. Officers responded to the home invasion report just after 5:30 a.m. — and later responded to a nearby hospital regarding an individual suffering from a gunshot wound to the arm, the station said. Turns out the patient was the alleged intruder the homeowner shot, KTYX reported. Laquintin Lockhart, 30, was then arrested at the hospital on Monday afternoon. He’s been charged with aggravated robbery according to local law enforcement. Police went on to say the second suspect is still on the loose, though the department is continuing to investigate. Guns are nothing more than tools, which means they are incapable of committing acts of right and wrong. What matters is whose hands these tools are in, and unfortunately, gun control laws only serve to harm law-abiding citizens, a simple fact the left just refuses to acknowledge. Without the Second Amendment guaranteeing that the God-given right to own a firearm for the protection of life, liberty, and property, this man would’ve been victimized and possibly deprived of his most precious gift. It’s not fair to leave folks like him…

AOC’s Constituents Get Rude Awakening When Trying To Contact Her Office By Phone

So much for being the “future of the Democratic Party,” huh?

Published

on

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just keeps adding more and more reasons to the list for why she should never, ever be re-elected to the congressional seat she currently holds, which should be alarming to her, but she seems to be so out of touch with reality she doesn’t even know it’s happening. Her latest goof up has to do with the fact that she’s now become the least accessible representative in New York City, with the NY and D.C. offices now using filtering systems to prevent callers from speaking with an actual, real life human being. This is not how you win elections, AOC. From TheBlaze: The Post called the offices of each of the 13 lawmakers representing New York City, and all the offices of each of those lawmakers had a person answering the phone — except Ocasio-Cortez’s offices. A congressional Democratic aide accused Ocasio-Cortez of not caring about her constituents. “She has no plans to serve the people. That’s why she has no constituent services operation,” the aide told The Post. “If you’re a grandma in Queens who needs help with her Medicare and you call AOC’s ‘district office’ you get a recording that tells you to visit the website instead. What kind of elitist nonsense is that? Shameful, it’s all shameful.” Calls to the Washington, D.C., office are filtered. Only callers with D.C. or New York City area codes have a chance at getting through; other callers are given an automated message that directs them to Ocasio-Cortez’s website. Calls to her district office in Jackson Heights give constituents the option to press 2, and directs other callers to visit the website or send an email. Pressing 2 does not route the call to an aide or receptionist, however, it simply allows the caller to leave a message. So…
