Ted Cruz Lights Up AOC for Saying Mike Pence’s Decisions Have Cost People Their Lives

And boom goes the dynamite…

Freshman Democrat Socialist lawmaker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) apparently felt the need to tweet after President Trump decided to put Vice President Mike Pence in charge of America’s response to the coronavirus.

As expected, the bartender-turned-Congresswoman didn’t have nice things to say about Pence, a Christian family man if there ever was one.

She might’ve thought she was being all big and bad, but then Texas Senator Ted Cruz (R) showed up and decided to point out a few things she doesn’t understand. How do you like them apples, Alexandria?

Cruz’s response:

From Business Insider:

Vice President Mike Pence’s office will coordinate all public messaging and appearances by government officials concerning the Wuhan coronavirus, The New York Times reported on Thursday.

Officials familiar with the strategy told The Times that the new approach would help streamline the administration’s public statements, some of which have been contradictory. The efforts will focus on getting officials on the same page for television appearances, The Times said.

The sooner residents of New York can get Ocasio-Cortez out of office, the better off America will be.

Not only is she nothing more than a raging socialist who dislikes the nation that has afforded her everything, but she’s not very good at what she does.

If New Yorkers don’t vote AOC out in November, Democrats might just find a way to get her out of office themselves…soon enough. How sad.

Here’s what’s up, via Daily Wire:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) may have anticipated a long and prosperous career in Congress, but if the Democrats in New York’s state legislature have their way, the freshman Member may be out of a job as soon as 2022.

According to pollster Frank Luntz, New York is likely to lose a seat in Congress after the 2020 census and Democrats in the state legislature will have to redraw the state’s Congressional districts as a result. Although there are plenty of places to cut, New York Dems are reportedly eyeing Ocasio-Cortez’s Bronx district for elimination because she’s been out of sync with state-level Democrats who control the process.

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.
