Socialist Darling Ocasio-Cortez Busted Trying to Backtrack “Girl From the Bronx” Claims

Published

on

28-year-old Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has taken the mainstream media by storm after her surprise upset of Rep. Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.) in the New York primaries last month.

The “Democratic” Socialist is a favorite of the mainstream media, who can’t get enough of her poorly-defined progressive politics and inspiring one-liners about America’s need to give free things to everyone.

She’s relied heavily upon her “girl from the Bronx” image, but not long after her surprise victory, journalists discovered she had not, in fact, spent much of her childhood in the Bronx.

“I was born in a place where your Zip code determines your destiny,” she is fond of saying, although she does not make mention of which zip code she actually grew up in.

As The Blaze explains:

According to the New York Times, it’s true Ocasio-Cortez was born into the doldrums of the Bronx. However, at the ripe age of 5, Ocasio-Cortez’s late father, Sergio Ocasio, an architect, moved her family an hour north to Yorktown Heights, a wealthy suburb of New York City in Westchester County.

Yorktown Heights, ironically, is the opposite of the Bronx. In a 1999 New York Times profile of Yorktown Heights, the town supervisor described it as “a folksy area where people can come, kick off their shoes, wander around, sit in a cafe, listen to a concert in the park, or go to the theater.” Ocasio-Cortez would have been about 10 years old at the time.

While she has stuck by her story that her family was working class despite living in this affluent area most of her life, it appears it may have ruffled her feathers more than she’d like to admit.

The Blaze reports that she appears to have quietly changed her biography on her campaign website according to these revelations:

As the Journal News noted, Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign biography originally stated: “She ended up attending public school 40 minutes north in Yorktown, and much of her life was defined by the 40-minute commute between school and her family in the Bronx.”

The website biography has since been updated, but it still doesn’t explicitly state that Ocasio-Cortez’s move to Westchester County was permanent.

“She ended up attending public school in Yorktown — 40 minutes north of her birthplace. As a result, much of her early life was spent in transit between her tight-knit extended family in the Bronx and her daily student life” the bio now reads.

Either way, seems pretty dishonest to me.

DeSantis Says Anti-Vax Cops Eligible for $5K Signing Bonus in Florida

Florida = Freedom.

Published

on

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is taking a stand against the proliferation of COVID-19 vaccine mandates, and staking his political career on being right about it.

DeSantis has long railed against the idea that Floridians should be forced into medical decisions that they aren’t comfortable with, or be told what level of risk they are allowed to take in regard to the waning pandemic.  This has, of course, put him at odds with a vast number of Democrats as well as some of the major corporations that do business in the Sunshine State.

But DeSantis will not be deterred, and he has now offered a lifeline to essential personnel from other locales who are being effected by what he sees as an unconstitutional set of mandates.

During an appearance on “Sunday Morning Futures” with Maria Bartiromo, DeSantis said he is now “actively working” to recruit out-of-state police officers who have been fired or placed on unpaid leave due to their city’s vaccine mandate.

“We’re actually actively working to recruit out-of-state law enforcement, because we do have needs in our police and our sheriff’s departments. So, in the next legislative session, I’m going to hopefully sign legislation that gives a $5,000 bonus to any out-of-state law enforcement that relocates in Florida,” DeSantis said.

“So, NYPD, Minneapolis, Seattle, if you’re not being treated well, we will treat you better here. You can fill important needs for us, and we will compensate you as a result,” he added.

DeSantis would go on to suggest that the vaccine mandates implored by the Biden administration are not only outside of the scope of the federal government’s power, but also incredibly detrimental to our chances at a full economic recovery from the coronavirus pandemic.
