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?

The saga of Hunter Biden is far from over. In fact, we’ve really just began to scratch the surface. A whole bunch of people could potentially serve some serious time behind bars. Not really. That’ll never happen, unfortunately. Anyway, here’s the latest on the Biden crime family – via Daily Caller: Federal investigators obtained a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant against one of Hunter Biden’s Chinese business associates, suggesting that the executive was suspected of acting as a covert agent of a foreign government. Prosecutors revealed the existence of at least one FISA warrant against Chi Ping Patrick Ho, known as Patrick Ho, in a Feb. 8, 2018 court filing obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation. CONTINUED: Ho was charged on Dec. 18, 2017 with conspiracy to violate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and money laundering related to CEFC China Energy contracts in Uganda and Chad. Ho had been an executive at the multi-billion dollar Chinese energy company prior to his arrest. Hunter Biden was part of a business consortium that sought a partnership with CEFC in May 2017. A Senate report released last month said that an affiliate of CEFC wired $5 million to Biden’s law firm from August 2017 through August 2018. Here’s President Trump on Hunter from a rally a few days ago… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7VhA9yMX27U

‘I Think Joe Biden’ & His ‘Family Are Compromised’ By China, Says Hunter Business Partner

How about them apples?

One of the major reasons Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in 2016 was because he wasn’t indebted to anybody, despite the lies lefties pushed with Russiagate. He could’ve financed his campaign himself, if he wanted to. That’s not the case with Joe Biden. And the former VP is as corrupt as it gets. From The Daily Wire: Tony Bobulinski, a whistleblower who was a former business partner of Hunter Biden, told Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Tuesday night that he believes that the Biden family, including Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, is compromised by China.

Kamala Harris, among other prominent Democrats, Fox News has learned. An email exclusively obtained by Fox News, with the subject line “Phase one domestic contacts/ projects” and dated May 15, 2017, Biden’s brother, Jim Biden, shared a list of “key domestic contacts for phase one target projects.” The email is unrelated to the laptop or hard drive purportedly belonging to Hunter Biden, the former vice president’s son. It’s too bad the mainstream media refuses to tell the American people.
