Report By Paper Says Democratic Party May Try To Eliminate AOC’s House Seat

Published

on

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been a troublemaker for the Democratic Party ever since she won her House seat and took office last year, bucking against the progressive program as laid out by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

AOC has constantly been in the spotlight for saying things that are, well, really stupid to put it lightly, and has been labeled as being part of the “Squad,” a group of freshmen female representatives who have said some stuff that many have labeled as anti-Semitic.

Oh and there’s that little matter of AOC blowing a $3 billion deal with Amazon that would’ve brought tons of high paying jobs to her district.

As a result of all this, a paper is now reporting that the Democratic Party may try to erase AOC’s seat from existence.

Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner:

The editorial, which ran on Sunday, said the freshman representative has been in “hot water” with some in the party for “refusing to pay dues to her caucus’ fundraising arm, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee” and instead devotes resources to “defeating Democrats.”

Ocasio-Cortez, 30, launched her own political action committee with the hopes of supporting some challengers “who refuse to bow to establishment pressure.”

The PAC’s endorsements included four House candidates running to unseat Democratic incumbents: Marie Newman for Illinois’ 5th district, Samelys Lopez for New York’s 15th district, Jessica Cisneros for Texas’ 28th district, and Teresa Fernandez for New Mexico’s third district.

Two of the candidates are seeking office in seats held by Republicans, including the Texas seat occupied by Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas. One of the endorsements is for Georgette Gomez, a California Democrat who wants to fill the state’s open 53rd district.

“Don’t be surprised when the established Democrats who’ll control redistricting after the 2020 Census do their best to eliminate her seat,” the editorial went on to say.

Well, would those of us who have had to endure the never ending nonsense that spews forth from AOC’s mouth really be all that sad to see her go? The answer, of course, is a big, fat no. Good riddance.

Amazon Rolls Out Creepy ‘Pay By Palm’ Hardware at Whole Foods

Is this one of the harbingers of a cashless society?

Published

Throughout much of modern history, Americans and their cash were two separate things.  One was a human being, breathing and walking about, earning money.  The money was an inanimate commodity of varying value that we used to keep the organism alive, fat, and happy. But in the future, it seems as though we may find ourselves intrinsically, and anatomically indistinguishable from our bank account.  In fact, it appears as though Amazon is banking on it. Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) said it is rolling out biometric technology at its Whole Foods stores around Seattle starting on Wednesday, letting shoppers pay for items with a scan of their palm. The move shows how Amazon is bringing some of the technology already in use at its namesake brick-and-mortar Go and Books stores to the grocery chain it acquired in 2017. The system, called Amazon One, lets customers associate a credit card with their palm print. It offers a contact-less alternative to cash and card payments, Amazon said. Of course, the move is being regarded as a terrifying leap into Orwellian territory by privacy experts, as it appears to push us ever closer to a cashless society where hackers and power failures could doom us all to poverty in the blink of an eye.

Fraternal Order of Police Responds to LeBron James’ Tweet Fiasco

And they were NOT happy.

The politicization of American sports has been ongoing for some time, perhaps decades, but the most recent acceleration of this melding has come thanks to the power of social media and the blurring of the line between celebrity and athlete. At the forefront of this movement has been the NBA, and, more specifically, superstar LeBron James. This week, James came under fire for a tweet in which he referenced the Derek Chauvin trial’s guilty verdicts, with a photo of another officer who was involved in the shooting of a young black girl and text stating “you’re next”. The tweet was seen as a threat by many, including the Fraternal Order of Police who responded harshly. On Wednesday, James tweeted a photo of the officer involved in the shooting with a caption reading “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY.” The tweet has since been deleted. James was reacting to the deadly police shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant. Hours later, the National Fraternal Order of Police tweeted a photo of James’ original tweet, saying: “[email protected], with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in. This is disgraceful & extremely reckless. The officer saved a young girl’s life. No amount of gaslighting will change that fact.” James attempted to walk back the tweet after deleting it, by issuing an explanation that garnered only a lukewarm response online.
