This Ocasio-Cortez Campaign Email is Stuffed With All Kinds of Insanity. Take a Look For Yourself.

Wow. Just wow.

It’s no secret that many politicians tend to use fear tactics in order to persuade voters to cast a ballot for them come election time, but it seems as if the new face of the Democratic Party, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who is running for Congress in New York, is taking that whole schtick to a brand new level.

Her latest campaign email is chock full of looming nightmare visions of a white supremacist apocalypse that is sure to sweep the nation if the GOP wins the mid-term elections this month.

Throughout the email, Ocasio-Cortez makes not a single campaign promise other than the promise to protect voters from the “white supremacist forces” that are apparently terrorizing the United States under President Trump.

“Six days from now, we can defeat the brutal white supremacist forces of anti-Semitism, anti-immigrant nativism, and racism,” says the famed socialist. “We can hold accountable the cold-hearted monsters who have repeatedly attacked our health care. We can send a message to the bigots and billionaires that this country belongs to all of us. We can win if we show up on November 6. We must end Republican control of Congress and begin to reclaim our nation.”

Even though the recent white supremacist hater who murdered 11 Jews at prayer in their Pittsburgh synagogue last week was not an avid Trump supporter, Ocasio-Cortez touts the left-wing media’s claim that the shooting had something to do with the GOP’s control of Congress.

A Democratic majority will not bring back the eleven Jewish people in Pittsburgh, massacred while they prayed. Or the two Black people gunned down days before at a Kroger grocery store in Kentucky. It won’t fully stop the relentless attacks against immigrants in America.

But on Sunday evening, Pittsburgh mourners—angry and broken-hearted like us—chanted ‘Vote! Vote! Vote!’ They understand the magnitude of the midterm election six days from today: that it affords us the chance to forge a powerful bulwark against Donald Trump’s hate and hold accountable the Republicans who have been complicit in every step of his toxic, self-serving, and destructive agenda. We must offer a path out of the darkness.

The email then moves on to discussing Ocasio-Cortez’s rising influence within the Democratic Party this year, attempting to paint a portrait of the young lady as some sort of folk hero underdog coming up through the ranks to change the world.

The power of this grassroots organizing isn’t abstract to me; it is the foundation of our movement. From the first day of our campaign, I walked and walked and walked. I walked until I wore holes through my shoes and my feet were soaked. Hundreds of people from my community joined me, and together we knocked on over 120,000 doors.

And then something extraordinary happened: We won. Campaigns like ours aren’t supposed to win. But we did. And we can win again on Tuesday. Across the nation, progressives are on the verge of doing the impossible.

The thing is, she didn’t just squeak by her primary opponent. She destroyed him by 15 points. That’s a huge victory.

But never fear — or maybe it’s always fear — Ocasio-Cortez gets right back to the GOP white supremacy angle.

This is our chance to take action in solidarity with everyone whose lives are threatened by the hate-filled policies of Trump and the GOP.

Our chance to push back against white supremacist forces across our nation, against the xenophobes who are militarizing the border, against the bigots who seek to erase our transgender families, against the apologists for sexual assault and the Islamophobes who sow hate to divide us.

Apparently nothing gets folks to open up their wallets faster than fear mongering.

Promise Broken: 60 Percent of Americans Will Suffer Tax Hike Under Biden’s Plan

Biden ran for office repeatedly claiming that no one making less than $400K would pay more in taxes under his plan.

Biden ran for office repeatedly claiming that no one making less than $400K would pay more in taxes under his plan. We are now seeing that Biden lied. The Tax Policy Center released new data on the realities of Biden’s tax proposals and found that Biden’s policies will slam middle and low-income taxpayers right where it hurts. The organization says that 99.8 percent of Americans earning between $500,00 and $1million will pay an average of $8,810 more in taxes each year under Biden’s tax plan. This might be in keeping with Biden’s campaign pledge that only “the rich” will pay more. But the TPC also found that people who make far less will also get hit under Biden. The center says that people making between $75,000 and $500,00 will also get pinched. This is not as a result of direct taxes on income but of the impact of the other hikes in rates, such as the corporate tax rise. According to the Daily Mail: Three-quarters of households earning between $75,000 and $100,000 annually would face paying an additional $440 per year in taxes under Biden’s tax hikes, according to the data released last week. About 69 percent of those earning between $100,000 and $200,000 would see their yearly tax bill rise by $830 on average, according to the analysis. Meanwhile, 83.7 percent of those earning between $200,000 and $500,000 would see an increase of $2,040 on average. But most Americans will be impacted indirectly by Biden’s giant tax hike. “For those looking to see if Biden kept his promise to not raise taxes for those making $400,000 or less, the answer is: Mostly, but not entirely,” wrote Howard Gleckman, a senior fellow at the Tax Policy Center. “Including corporate tax increases, most households would pay more in 2022. About three-quarters…

N.J. School District Reverses Decision to Delete Holiday Names after Massive Backlash

A left-wing New Jersey school district has been forced to reverse its decision to delete holiday names from school calendars.

A left-wing New Jersey school district has been forced to reverse its decision to delete holiday names from school calendars after a massive backlash from the community. Last week, the Randolph Board of Education decided to delete the names of all school holidays because names like “Christmas” were too divisive. But after a backlash from the community, the district reversed its ill-conceived policy. The district’s move came after they canceled Columbus Day and renamed it “Indigenous People’s Day.” But the discussion soon moved to the claim that all the holidays were racist and needed to be dealt with. By the June 10 meeting, the district decided to cancel all the holiday names and simply call them a “day off.” But on Monday, the board had to face the music. According to NJ.com: Following a nearly four-hour meeting Monday, which included public comment from about 50 people, the board voted 8-1 to adopt the motion to restore the calendar to the way it was before Columbus Day and the other holiday names were taken off. Members also voted to amend the motion so that it would include sending the calendar to a committee for review and to gain input on it from a community survey. The idea was proposed by board member Vernetha Hope Powell, who said she wanted to community to be involved in the process. Most members of the public who spoke during the meeting wanted to have the entire calendar changed back to the way it was, with a smaller group calling for only Columbus Day to be called something else, with one suggesting that it should be called “Italian Heritage Day.” “We live in a cancel culture and we are very sensitive to that and we don’t want to see that in Randolph,” one resident said during…
