WaPo Slams Ocasio-Cortez by Fact Checking And Dismantling Her Claims. Check Out Her Response.

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez

The rising star of the Democratic Party, socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, might be crashing back to earth — and reality — far faster and harder than she thought possible, thanks in large part to being dismantled by an ever growing list of fact checkers.

You can now add the Washington Post to that list. Yes, it seems strange that a liberal publication would go after one of their own, but perhaps, here and there, folks are slowly waking up from their comas and rejoining the world as it is.

Here are the five claims that Washington Post fact checker Glenn Kessler dismantled:

Ocasio-Cortez claimed: “Everyone has two jobs.” The facts say: “The data is pretty clear that this statement is poppycock.” In fact, the July jobs report showed only 5.2 percent of Americans hold two jobs.

Ocasio-Cortez claimed: “ICE has a bed quota.” The facts say: “As our friends at PolitiFact documented, this is an urban legend.”

Ocasio-Cortez claimed: The “upper-middle class does not exist anymore in America.” The facts say: It has actually grown 16.5 percent since 1979.

Ocasio-Cortez claimed: Medicare for all is “much cheaper than the current system.” The facts say: It’s a downright lie, which the Washington Post has already awarded three Pinocchios. Indeed, Medicare for all would cost $33 trillion over the next 10 years.

Ocasio-Cortez claimed: Obamacare was upheld by the Supreme Court because it deemed monthly health care payments to be a tax. The facts say: “This appears to be an example of not understanding policy nuances.” Indeed, SCOTUS upheld the Obamacare individual mandate under the government’s taxing power.

Like any good leftist, Ocasio-Cortez blamed all the criticism on sexism. Because there’s no possible way it could be based on her lack of knowledge, understanding, or experience.

Ocasio-Cortez is literally the walking textbook definition of a modern day millennial Democrat. It’s almost as if she created a list of stereotypes that a left-winger in the 21st century is supposed to possess and has just went down the list ticking off the boxes.

A person who truly believed their ideology held real, lasting solutions for the problems facing our society and culture would surely want to shout it from the rooftops and engage with those who see things differently, knowing the facts will speak for themselves, right?

So if socialism is the answer to what ails America, why is Ocasio-Cortez dodging debates with leading conservative thinkers? Maybe it’s because, deep down, she’s just a young kid looking to capitalize off of the progressive movement in order to have a cushy career?

Trump Set to Declassify Obamagate Docs, Will Show Obama Spying on Trump Campaign

Had to be done.

Donald Trump accomplished more in one term than anybody thought possible. He managed to make even many “never Trump” Republicans see the light, with the way he went about business in the Oval Office. Unfortunately, Trump will not be able to serve a consecutive term and continue to expose government malfeasance. That being said, there’s still a whole lot POTUS can give us before leaving 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. on the 20th.

Joe is quite the card, even after all these decades. WATCH: Joe Biden: “I know President Trump likes to take credit for the economy… Just look at the facts, not the alternative facts. President Trump inherited an economy from Obama-Biden administration that was given to him — just like he inherited everything else in his life.” https://twitter.com/thehill/status/1130179564351741952?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw

School Featured In ‘Remember the Titans’ Might Be Renamed ‘Kamala Harris High’

Great movie, terrible idea.

Giving Kamala Harris the title of vice president is pretty awful. Senator was bad enough. But now she’s going to be honored with her name on a school? What’s next? Forget Harriet Tubman and put the woman who slept her way into politics on the $20? From TDW: T.C. Williams High School, well known for its prominent role in the popular Disney film “Remember The Titans”, could soon be renamed as “Kamala Harris High School.” In November, the Alexandria City School Board voted unanimously to remove Williams’ name due to his support of segregation while serving as superintendent of the Alexandria, VA, school system. According to the school, Williams was a “staunch segregationist whose views could not have been more inconsistent with the vibrant, diverse and inclusive place we know today.” Students are being given the chance to vote. The final decision will be made in April. Other options the kids have to choose from are “George Floyd High School” and “Ruth Bader Ginsburg High School.” If it came down to Kamala, George, or Ruth, you’d have to go with RBG High…right?? Here’s a clip from the film… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aYp94Kk8AdE
