Thanks A LOT, Joe Crowley!

Joe Crowley lost in the primary to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

That alone was bad enough for New Yorkers – and the nation.

But it is now being revealed, via a new report, that Crowley’s team had enough political dirt on the former bartender to defeat her in 2018.

From Daily Caller:

Former Democratic Congressman Joe Crowley reportedly could have shoveled political dirt on current New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, but decided to say nothing about it.

Crowley, who was expected to win his congressional nomination with ease, lost in a stunning upset. He was either apparently confident during his race with Ocasio-Cortez that he didn’t think he needed to resort to mudslinging, or he didn’t think it was the right thing to do. He reportedly thought doing so would make him look unnecessarily desperate, according to a new book obtained by the New York Post. Crowley was even allegedly expecting to replace Democratic California Rep. Nancy Pelosi as the then-House minority leader.

“Crowley had plenty of fodder he could’ve used against Ocasio-Cortez, but his top New York campaign operatives decided to take the punches and not hit back,” Politico reporters Jake Sherman and Anna Palmer write in their new book, “The Hill to Die On.”

Never assume you’re going to win. What a shame.

If it’s not the race card, it’s the gender card.

Democrats always have a wild card under their sleeve, knowing they can’t win an argument based on facts and logic.

Take Alexandria, for example.

She says she’s vilified because she’s “a woman.”

It couldn’t be because of her outlandish, far-left ideas, could it? NAH!

It’s sexism!

When asked about Trump supporters chanting “AOC sucks” at the president’s rally in Michigan last week, Ocasio-Cortez implied she was only being criticized because of her gender.

AOC: “You know this is part of a pattern that the right and the far-right and, frankly, the President is consistent with.

AOC: “He doesn’t have another woman, Hillary Clinton or whoever else, to vilify anymore so they need to find another woman to kind of prop up and become a lightning rod.

WATCH:

Ocasio-Cortez said something pretty awful about ICE. First, she sent the tweet below.

She pretty much implies that “dangerous” ICE is committing rape.

…(BOLD MINE)…

If you’re mad that I think people SHOULD KNOW when Dems vote to expand ICE powers, then be mad.

ICE is a dangerous agency with 0 accountability, widespread reporting of rape, abuse of power, + children dying in DHS custody.

Having a D next to your name doesn’t make that right.

She wasn’t done.

She kept it going…

#MomsDemand & #MarchForOurLives activists, who flew in from across the country, were watching from the gallery, crying + confused.

I ran up to them *during the vote* and explained that the gotcha amendment pinned gun safety against immigration advocacy. Its intent was to divide.

What I DID say was that I had to go back to my district & share the MTR vote to explain why a pro-ICE amendment was slipped into a gun safety law.

Maybe they’re mad bc I don’t believe pro-ICE expansion votes should be cast in the dark, and people deserve to know what happened.

“At [DHS immigrant detention] facility, children recounted being held down for forcible injections, which medical records show are powerful antipsychotics and sedatives.”

Again, didn’t threaten a primary.

I was upset that 26 Dems forced the other 200+ to vote for a pro-ICE provision at the last min without warning.

Because I think an agency that pins children down + forcibly injects them w/ antipsychotic drugs shouldn’t be given more power.

Save conservative media!

Biden To Create Court Reform Commission Featuring Options That Go ‘Well Beyond’ Court Packing

Published

on

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden released a video clip on Thursday morning that revealed he will create a national commission to help reform the current court system, which no doubt is a response to President Trump nominating Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court during an election year. The statement delivered by the former vice president comes after he has repeatedly refused to answer questions about his position concerning court packing. A lot of folks on the left support this measure as a way to stack the bench with liberal judges so they can pretty much have free reign. via Daily Wire: “If elected, what I will do is I’ll put together a national commission of bipartisan commission of scholars, constitutional scholars, Democrats, Republicans, liberal, conservative,” Biden told CBS News. “And I will ask them to over 180 days come back to me with recommendations as to how to reform the court system because it’s getting out of whack, the way in which it’s being handled. And it’s not about court packing. There’s a number of other things that our constitutional scholars have debated and I’d look to see what recommendations that commission might make.” https://twitter.com/SteveGuest/status/1319247217337749508 Biden’s statement comes as he has refused to state whether he supports packing the courts and has stated that voters do not deserve to know if he will do so. Top Democrats such as Sen. Mazie Hirono (HI) have stated that court packing is an option when it comes to what Democrats claim is “court reform.” CBS News asked the former vice president if this proposed national commission would “study this issue about whether to pack the court.” Biden responded by saying, “No, whether — there’s a number of alternatives that are — go well beyond packing.” He was then asked if this was…

Hunter Biden’s Business Partner Labels Email ‘Genuine,” Says Hunter Sought Advice From Father On Deals

Published

on

One of the individuals who is listed as a recipient of an email that was published as part of a report by the NY Post detailing some kind of business arrangement with a company from China and members of the Biden family, Tony Bobulinski, has come forward and confirmed the email is “genuine” then elaborated on the Bidens’ role in this particular deal. Included in this email message is a note saying that “Hunter has some office expectations he will elaborate.” There’s also mention of some kind of equity split with “H” getting “20” and “10 held by H for the big guy.” There are no further details explaining the meaning of these references. Here’s more from Fox News: “The reference to ‘the Big Guy’ in the much publicized May 13, 2017 email is in fact a reference to Joe Biden,” Bobulinski said in a statement to Fox News. Bobulinski said he is the CEO of Sinohawk Holdings, which he explained “was a partnership between the Chinese operating through CEFC/Chairman Ye and the Biden family.” He said he was brought on as CEO by Hunter Biden and James Gilliar, who was listed as the sender of the email. Bobulinski went on to say he does not believe Joe Biden’s past claim that he and Hunter did not discuss his son Hunter’s business, claiming that Hunter “frequently referenced asking him for his sign-off or advice on various potential deals.” “I’ve seen Vice President Biden saying he never talked to Hunter about his business. I’ve seen firsthand that that’s not true, because it wasn’t just Hunter’s business, they said they were putting the Biden family name and its legacy on the line,” Bobulinski told Fox News. “The Biden family aggressively leveraged the Biden family name to make millions of dollars from foreign…
