VIDEO: AOC Caught In Lie About ‘Massive Gov’t Takeover’ Just Hrs After Saying Opposite

Different day, same Ocasio-Cortez.

Politicians on both sides of the aisle are often caught spouting falsehoods.

Ocasio-Cortez is by far and away one of the worst and it’s kind of not even close.

The latest example…

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) lied about her “Green New Deal” on Thursday, saying that it is not a “massive government takeover” hours after admitting the exact opposite.

AOC: “One way that the Right does try to mischaracterize what we’re doing as though it’s like some kind of massive government takeover. Uh, obviously what we’re trying to do is, well obviously it’s not that because what we’re trying to do is release the investments from the federal government to mobilize those resources across the country.

The funny thing is that Ocasio-Cortez said the exact opposite earlier in the day.

Host Steve Inskeep: “As you know, congresswoman, one reason that people who are politically conservative are skeptical of efforts to combat climate change is that it sounds to them like it requires massive government intervention which they just don’t like. Are you prepared to put on the table that yes, they’re actually right, what this requires is massive government intervention?

AOC: “It does. It does. Yeah, I have no problem saying that.

WATCH:

So, which is it, Alexandria?

For some reason, spending countless trillions on liberal policies until the end of time is no problem whatsoever but $5 billion for the border wall is preposterous.

The Democrat Socialist’s proposed Green New Deal proposal would cost tens of trillions of dollars, and apparently has the support of over 40 Democrats in Congress.

From Daily Caller:

Democrats are increasingly lining up to support a “Green New Deal,” which, while vague on details, could end up being the largest expansion of government in decades.

[…]

Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal” calls for creating a House committee to draft legislation to fight global warming and turn the U.S. economy into something akin to what Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders envisions. Indeed, the “Green New Deal” could be a preview of what policies the Democratic Party will back in the 2020 elections.

[…]

Those goals include moving the U.S. to 100 percent green energy, federal job guarantees for workings forced out of their fossil fuel jobs, guaranteed minimum income and universal health care.

[…]

On top of that, the non-energy-related portions of the Green New Deal could cost trillions more, including universal health care and guaranteed income.

The New York representative wants Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) “scrapped.”

You know, because America shouldn’t have the right to keep out people who shouldn’t be here, or something.

Liberal logic.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Sunday night in a social media post that the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency should be “scrapped” altogether.

The Congresswoman knows very little of which she speaks.

Ed Buck, Big Time Dem Donor, Arrested After Man Overdoes On Meth In His Home

Uh oh….somebody’s in trouble…

Published

on

Big Time Democrat donor Ed Buck has been arrested and charged with battery and maintaining a drug house after a third man overdosed on meth at his California home Tuesday evening. The man in question managed to survive the ordeal, but two other men have died under similar circumstances at Buck’s residence in West Hollywood since 2017. However, Buck was not charged in those deaths because the authorities who investigated the incidents claimed there wasn’t enough evidence to arrest him. Here’s more from TheBlaze: The charges against Buck stem from a Sept. 11 incident during which Buck allegedly administered two “dangerously large doses” of methamphetamine to an unidentified 37-year-old man. According to prosecutors, Buck tried to prevent the man from seeking help when he overdosed. The man eventually fled the apartment and called 911. The same man had previously overdosed at Buck’s home on Sept. 4. The accusations against Buck are similar to those made in the deaths of 26-year-old Gemmel Moore and 55-year-old Timothy Dean, adding to the belief that Buck preys on men who are homeless and/or addicts, luring them with promises of shelter and drugs. “From his home, in a position of power, Buck manipulates his victims into participating in his sexual fetishes,” prosecutors said, according to court documents. “These fetishes include supplying and personally administering dangerously large doses of narcotics to his victims. … Not deterred by the senseless deaths of Moore and Dean, the defendant nearly killed a third victim last week.” Prosecutors working the case are seeking $4 million bail for Buck. Buck is facing one count each of battery causing serious injury, administering methamphetamine and maintaining a drug house. If he ends up getting convicted, Buck could be spending up to five years and eight months in prison. Buck has been a pretty…

Good News: Number Of Abortions Plummets To New All-Time Low Since Roe v. Wade

This is very good news!

Published

on

The true Civil Rights issue of the day is not anything to do with color or sexual orientation, but that of the most basic, fundamental right of all: life. Ever since the decision in Roe v. Wade was made, millions of children have died before they even had a chance to experience the joys of life, a crime not only against humanity, but a heinous act of idolatry that has surely brought some of God’s judgment down on our nation. Well, it seems the pro-life crowd finally has some news to celebrate about as a new report indicates that the rate of abortions being performed has dropped significantly since 2011, hitting its lowest since Roe v. Wade in 1973. Here’s more from TheBlaze: According to the liberal Guttmacher Institute, the abortion rate has dropped from more than 1 million in 2011 to 926,000 in 2014 and 862,000 in 2017 — a 20 percent decrease during this seven-year time period. Although pro-life changes on a state level are certainly a step in the right direction, Guttmacher said it believed these new laws were not the driving force behind the drop in abortions. In their words: With the available evidence, it is impossible to pinpoint exactly which factors drove recent declines, and to what degree. However, previous Guttmacher analyses have documented that abortion restrictions, while incredibly harmful at an individual level, were not the main driver of national declines in the abortion rate in the 2008–2011 or 2011–2014 time periods. Much the same appears to hold true for the 2011–2017 timeframe….Rather, the decline in abortions appears to be part of a broader decline in pregnancies, as evidenced by fewer births over the same period. But, while the number of births overall may be dropping, the report also said that the ratio of…
